'"Is  llittmeister   von   Wilken  staying     at  this hotel?" *  The blonde man's nose went    into  '���������the air,  and he half closed his eyes.

Hortense stood motionless; she did  not come to the table until the  'waiter had served the soup and disappeared. She sat before her plate,  ���������white and still, but did not touch  the food.  "Do eat, Hortense," implored Lucie.  She shook her head and examined  the two theatre tickets that were  lying by her, plate.  "Had Ave not better stay at home  to-night?"   said  the  young  girl.  "No," was the brusque response.  The dinner passed  in silence.     The  ���������-dessert     remained   untouched.     Hor-  _ tense now proposed that they should  -take'the drive  that  they had given  up  in  the      morning,   and  soon  thej*  they were     -sitting .silently  by  each  other in-the carriage driving through  the street of the  Grosse Garten.  It occurred to Lucie that Hortense  'had put en an unusually handsome  ���������costume, and in returning she stopped at a shop in the Prag Strasse,  .-and came back with a bright-red  parasol.  "The     newest     thing,"    she   said,  -smilingly,' to   the   young   girl,   using  "her  new     possession  as  a, projection  against      the  spring   sun.     "Do  you  like it?"  "No,"   said Lucie.   "I  do   not    like  such bright colors."  "Isor  I,"   returned   the young   bar-  om.-ss,   M-l.orie  pale  fa.ee  .seemed  quite  -changed  with      the reflection  of,    the  parasoL        "1 do      not either,   but,"  .and  she held the  parasol over Lucie,  "it answers the purpose,  I. see.".  When   they   rol-urned   to   the     hoi*  they  hastened  to   dress  for  the  theatre.        Lucie     was  vary  soon  ready;  ���������she came over into  her  friend's  bedroom,   as  she  often  liked   to  do,     to  see  if she could   be  of  any  assistance  to   her.     llortense,   in   a   black*     lace  -dress,   was  standing  before  tlie  large  mirror,   on   a   little   table   near     her  were various boxes with flowers and  ���������feathers';     she had  just  been arranging  a  butterily made   of gold  filigree  and   different  colored   stones   in     her  h.-iir;  now     she '    pulled it out impatiently, and threw it on the table.

He was a great  traveler and a close observer, and hi3  anecdotes and short stories are described as being founded on his own  experiences and observations. In "Persian Poetry For English Readers" Mr.  S. Robinson quote?- the following from  Sud i's writings:   '  A pu;)il said lo his 'instructor. "What  am 1 to do. for people incommode me  with th'e frequency of their visits,to  such-a degree that their conversation  produces a great distraction of my valuable time?" ���������  The teacher replied: "To every one  who i.s poor lend and from every one  wlio is rich borrow. They will not come  about you again." *  Another example embodies excellent  advice: A silly fellow, having a-pain in  his eyes, went to a farrier and asked  him for a remedy. The farrier applied  to his eyes something which be would  have given to an animal, and it blinded him, upon which they made an appeal to the magistrate. The magistrate  said: ��������� '   ���������    ''   /  "This is no case for damages. It ia  plain that this fellow is an ass' or he  would not have gone to a farrier."  No man of enlightened understanding  will .commit weighty matters to oue of  mean'abilities.  New Zealand's capital.' Wellington,  is not the largest city in the islands.

Pneumonia,  once established, must run its course  and when 'statistics' show us that  more people die annually throughout  "the Northern, - Middle and "Western  States from this, than from any  other disease, it1 becomes us to stir  ourselves and - ascertain "what remedies we can adopt to prevent a* cold  developing into pneumonia.

In conjunction' apply St.  Jacob's Oil across the top portion  of the chest and throat, cover with  oil silk, on top of which put hot  flannel cloths; place foot in hot mustard and water, take a hot lemonade with a dash of Jamaica (not  jMedford. oh dear no) rum, and you  will be all right, most likely in a  day  or  two.

One might suppose that  this would attract attention to the bird  crouching on the. snow, hut in fact it  serves for concealment. . Every projection on a snowfield. casts a dark sliad-  ,ow and that is what the tail of the  motionless ptarmigan looks like, the  body of the bird' resembling a mere  hump on the while background.

All the coins  issued from it bore the dates 16G2 or  1(502, the "same dies being used probably throughout the thirty-four years" oi  coinage. Some coins had been made  in Bermuda for the use'of the Virginia  colony ,a's .early as 104*1., Copper coins  bearing the "figure of an elephant were  struck, in England for the Carolinas  and New England in 1G9-1. Coins were  also struck for Maryland bearing the  effigy of Lord Baltimore. A mint was  established in Rupert, Vt., by legislative authority in 17S5, wheuco copper  cents were issued, bearing on one side  a plow and a sun rising from behind  hills and on the other a radiated eye  surrounded by thirteen stars. -  'The .complexion tells the tiuality^f  the blood and acts as a ���������thermometer  of   the   health.

You'll find hirn at the  Grand Circular.    I got it privately."  , That was what the city editor had -  , said in giving him the assignment, aud  yet Wickkain was not keen on it, for  he had planned to happen tof be near  the ladies' entrance of quite a different  hotel that afternoon at' an hour when  he had good reason to believe that  Miss Olive Parker would be going in  to get a cup of tea. He was not interested in wandering swamis.  Nevertheless he stuck to his assignment and was presently at the clerk's  'desk at tho Grand- Circular, trying to  form a plan of interviewing a traveling swami of retiring disposition. The  name on the register was in very matter of fact writing: Q "John Lyndon  '    Spragge,   Liverpool,  England."   '  "Nothing mysterious about this fellow,   I'll   wager ��������� common,   everyday  r British drummer.   And in ten minutes  from now, Olive will"���������  'Did   Wickham   say   these   thoughts  aloud i or only think( them ?^Of that  ��������� ,  he  never   made .sure;*,"But7a   stocky  man,  dressed in  tweeds, -tapped  him  on the elbow  from  behind.  ."Looking,at my'autograph, sir?"'  ' Wickham   started-and ,turned.    "Is  ���������'-���������this  Mr.  Spragge?"  '  The ..man' in I*tweeds   smiled   pleas-v  antly.  ��������� "FnKa. reporter,"- said Wickham. ���������  "So I thought."  1 "Then .you   have   guessed   what ,1  want   to   see   you   about?"   a  'fairly  good   diplomatic   stroke,   considering,  how ' hard   it   was   for' Wickham   to  keep his'mind from, wandering to the  other hotel.  Mr. .Spragge smiled  oddly.    "Oh,   I  .    don't i?now about 'guessed.'    Suppose  we go up to my room."  - As they walked up one flight of carpeted stairs together he tried to guess  Spragge's age, and that puzzled  him.  He studied the red' and brown cheeks  " and neck, and thoy puzzled' him,, too.  for he thought an occult person should  look much les9 like*am eater of thick  "beefsteaks.  "Is this your first visit to America?"  "Yes.  but Vou  didn't vcome here to  . ask me that" -  . ^Although this remark did not necessarily   imply.- preternatural   intuition.  Wickham began to feel a little creepy.  "I suppose you���������you travel for pleasure." n  '  By this time they were entering the  Englishman's room, on the second floor.  "Yes," he said; "I do���������that and other  things."   Then, closing the door behind  him, he added, "And perhaps Spragge  is not my only name."  Wickham gasped and turned to stare  , at him!   "Arc you a clairvoyant?"  "I might be, or I might be a mahat-  ma or anything else that would interest your readers, aad you might be a  * reporter for the Express if you were  not in fact the representative of the  Morning Star. What can I do in par-,  ticular to oblige you at present?"  Wickham had forgotten ��������� all about  Miss Parker. "Well���������er���������do you really  possess these wonderful powers?"  "Which? Bilocation? Levitation?  Perhaps."  "Then, if you don't mind, perhaps  you might"��������� -  The stocky man brolco in with a gleeful laugh, throwing his head back in  the chair. "If you should see me, for  instance, float up to the ceiling, chair  and all. what good would that do?"  "I thought you occultists wanted to  convince the public."  "And you are one of the public's pairs  of eyes? But if I didgive you an exhibition like that"��������� ��������� Spragge stopped  tantalizingly and looked at the reporter. - v  Wickham sat on tho very edge of his  chair iu breathless expectation of  something miraculous.  "If I did anything of that kind, you'd  have two columns about it in the Morning Star, wouldn't you?"  "I should think so," said Wickham,  relaxing into a more, comfortable attitude. .  The Englishman laughed again.  "Well, perhaps your editor might let  it get into print, but much more likely  he would 'say you were drunk.''  There was a pause, Wickham turning over in his mind the probabilities  of this hypothetical case., If a reporter  was to be accused of seeing double  when he reported this kind of thing,  what was the use of sendipg him to  interview a magician? He began to  think he had better let the interview  go at that. Then he remembered Olive  Parker again and nervousiy pulled out  hi*? watch.  At this the. other man smiled and  shook his head. "I'm afraid you're too  late. Besides, the young lady has  changed her mind and gone to a  friend's house."  Wickham's jaw dropped, and the  stare in which his face was set was  as of one who saw a specter.  That evening the city editor cross  ���������examined Wickham, for the city editor  was confident there was good news  matter in this swami affair.  "You say he admits that Spragge  isn't his real name?"  "Yes, in a sort of way."  "Well, whht i3 his real name?"  "He didn't tell me that He's a magician all right. He knew I was Rooking,at his name in the hotel register  when my'back was turned to him."  "H'm!   Is that all?"  "He knew I was a Star man without  niy telling him."  "Wickham. if you think It would  lake, a uiahatma ro find that out���������  What else?" ���������  Wickham turned red and stammered.  It was borne in upon him that-tho final  proof of Sipragge's preternatural powers was much too delicately personal  to he mentioned to the city editor. As  for putting it into print, that was unthinkable.  The city'editor, sighed in weary disappointment, looked all around the  room and sniffed.  'Wickham  went to his desk'feeling'  that all his rosy prospects of journalistic < advancement   were   fading;   but  when  he reached his desk,  behold,  a  square   envelope   of   a   delicate   gray  green,tint!   He opened it and read:  -*-  Dear Mr. Wickham���������Just i home from  Mrs. Cowley's reception, .where Alex  would have me with her, and I didn't care  to say what in particular urged me to  shop just this afternoon.  At Mrs. C.'s somelhing turned up that  may make a good item for you. She and  a lot of them are theosopliists, and it  seems there is a man here who gives himself out to be an k English ' swami. But  those Boer relief'committee women got  private warning that, this Spragge is the  same English detective .who. was- watching  them at Philadelphia. He is an old Indian ' scout -service man like you read,  about. Two of'the B. R. C. saw him on  the .steamboat last ��������� night. They teased  me about' him, because they said he was  watching us and taking you to be a recruit I was enlisting. vfor the Boers.. At  Philadelphia the first' thing he did was to  find out all ho could about newspaper  men, gave his name as Southgate and-let  them think he was some lord in disguise  looking for chances to invest money.  'Can't you make something of this for'  the paper? He is at the Grand Circular. I  think.   Cordially,     . ' , O. P.  -p. s.���������This goes by special messenger.  Wickham thought he could, and he  lost no time in saying so to the city editor.' And that was how it came to  pass that next morning the Star had an  exclusive story of" Mr. Spragge���������how  Mr. Spragge, who had ostensibly arrived in' the city the day before and  registered at the Grand Circular, had  really spent two days quietly at an obscure boarding house learning all he  could about things not .obviously his  business;'how he had played much the  same game in at least two other big  cities, all to make sure that the Boer  relief committees were not shipping  contrabands to the seat of war.  It was a great thing for WTickham's  journalistic prospects, ,that story, hut  it hurt Spragge's career.  i-;.*-.*n.i*u.i..a.i*.. tiii- iiti.ntt.ii.i. mi i.i.aiO,A.v.f  COLON  _    He Tells'of Kis Many Experiences    t  With   Editors  ���������a  ^^^;u<.i.'jv.������V'i'li*ii������'u;''.'������t''u'V������h������-tt'-i't't''-'-lf'r*^  [Copyright. 1902, by "Warner Muller.]  S a1 public man for forty years  past," said ^Colonel Bunker  as he sipped at his glass and  set it aside for a moment, "I  have met up with a large number of  editors.

"'Mistah Blank,' said I when we  had been introduced and shaken hands,  'will yo' have half an hour to spare  during the day?'  " 'I will.' he replied.  " 'Then. suh. *at what particular hour  will it be most convenient for yo' to  receive my friend, Majah Worthing-  ton? Shall we say 3 o'clock this evening?'    -  \'  " 'What is the majah's object in calling?' he asked as he looked at me rather queerly.  "To arrange our little affair, suh���������  our little affair. The choice of weapons  will rest with yo', of co'rse, but I hope  yo' can name an early hour.'  "There was no meeting," said the  colonel as he emptied his glass and set  it down with a sigh. "The editor was  taken with a chill that day and could  not see callers, and next day the Banner devoted two columns of space to  my catfish bill and declared that it was  the wisest measure of the whole session. Many were the poker games I sat  in with that editor in arter years, and  it was 'my painful pleasure, suh, so to  say. to be one of his pallbearers five  years ago. It was simply that he didn't  size me up correctly at the start.  "And   I   direct yo'r  attention,   suh,"  resun-pd lhe colonel after his glass had  been refilled���������"I direct yo'r attention to  my  little  misunderstanding  with   the  editor of the Courier.   I was a judge on  tlie bencfi at tho'time, and the Courier'  found fault with my ruling in a certain case.   Indeed, suh. th   paper went  so far as to question my legal abilities  to decide oh such a fan-caching matter  and to advise an appeal from my rulings.  1 made it my business to drop j������  on the'editor, and as he received me I  said:, ( >r       ,  " To'   have* expressed  doubts as to>  my legal wisdom, suh, but,there is a  little matter on which I desiah yo' to'  satisfy yo'rself to the fullest possible  extent.'  "'And what may that be?'<he asked.  ' " 'As to uiy shooting, suh.   ln order'  that yo' may discover for yo'rself that  I ara neither cross eyed ncr nearsighted I suggest that yo' name a friend to  'arrange details with a  friend I shall  name.'  " "Is it a duel, colonel?'  "'Itis, suh.'  "He was no fishworm,-������that editor,"  said the colonel. "On the, contrary, he  was a game man. He, dismissed me  with all. due , courtesy,' and- an hour  later the, details of our duel were arranged. He selected pistols, made his  will and was on tho ground ahead of  mc at sunrise., He had been reflecting  during the night', however, 'and befo'  the pistols were handed, out to us -he  approached me and said :r. '0n ' <  a. " 'Colonel Bunker, while ,this affair,  must go on and while I shall probably  leave "the ground ,alive, I wish tb say  in I justice to both of us that a closer  reading of yo'r decision has convinced  me that yo', could have made no oth-er.  It is a -^ise and just decision, suh, as  the Courier will state tomorrow, and  all praise is due -yo' -for yo'r patient  and painstaking ' investigation. Now,  let us proceed to shoot each other.'  "But we , didn't proceed, suh���������we  didn't proceed," sighed the colonel as  he reflected on the saving of powder  and lead. "When the editor finished  his remarks, my hand weut out in  greeting, and * ten minutes later we  were .crooking our elbows in unison.  Each of us made a stanch friend? suh���������  a friend for years-to come���������and I can't  P'ty that I have ever been sorry it  turned out that way.

De-  - libefately, in cold blood,'Miss De Vaux  had opened a letter addressed to Fenella' and stood* reading it as though it  were her own. Tlie reading made her,  eyes snap. When she came to the signature, she stamped hard and made to  fling the offending sheet into the fire.  * Fenella was too quick for her. She  caught the "letter, crumpled it between  locked hands, then confronted Miss De  Vaux with a face as set as her own.  "I have "wanted not to hate you, Aunt  Tarn," she said. "There arc just the  two of us left. Bui���������but you make me  do it I did not think my .father's sister *ould be so dishonorable."  '" Miss De Vaux gasped. If one ot the  roses blooming on the terrace, outside  the windows had spoken reproof of  lier, she would have been������������������ scarcely more  amazed. Fenella in all the live -years  , since she came to Vauxlour had shown  herself a pattern of silent, shy obedience. She must be' instantly disci-c  pliried. '       -, '    ' ,  "Go to your room at once!" she said  icily. , "Stay there until'John .Termain  comes.  I shall, tell him '1 he whole truth.  ' After that,"if he, still wishes to-*marry  you,  you  will leave 'my  house as his  wife or else as penniless as you are  ungrateful.''  "1 shall go now!" Fenella said, tumping-toward.the outer door.' Miss De  Vaux barred her way, saying with a  bitter sinile: "Wait.    Read your letter.  Between the  lines  you   will  find  out  that your true'love, Mr. Allen Lee, does  not want you unless you bring1 him the  hope of my money."  Fenella's luminous pallor turned suddenly ashen, but her head was high as  she answered, "You would hardly have  tried to burn a fetter which said that."  But instead of pressing to, the hall  door she turned and went up the 'stair-  In an hour she came down, a slim,  black wraith, ~t clothed in the c faded  , mourning sho had worn when she came  to Vauxlour. A, small, bag, pitifully  rusty, ��������� more pitifully' flabby, dangled  from her hand. "I am taking away  nothing but what belongs to me. Bear  witness to that, Aunt Tarn," she said  ,dully, pausing a few steps in front of  Miss De Vaux. "You were right. I was  ungrateful. - I understand now, you���������  you���������wanted to .save me the hurt, the  shame of it," she went on, "but I must  go away, just the same. I cannot���������cannot marry"���������  "Stop, foolish child! There need be  no talk of marriage���������until you'ehoose,"  Miss De Vaux said huskily. Under  her crust of imperious pride she loved  . Fenella dearly: '.'Listen! Be wise and  a little pitiful. John Jcrmain ought to  be my son. I never loved anybody but  his father. My pride and temper part;  ed us. Now you know why I want  him to have the money, yet not to leave  it away from my own blood."  "Let him have it���������unincumbered,"  Fenella said proudly.  Miss De Vaux wrung her hands.  "You���������you J must not go away," she  said. Fenella smiled wanly, but shook  her head, saying, "I must."  "You are mad���������quite mad!" Miss Do  Vaux said, the distress in her voice apparent. A tall, wholesome looking fellow came gustily through the door. Two  strides took him up to Fenella. "What  does it mean���������this masquerade?" he  asked. Miss De Vaux began to speak,  but Fenella stopped her by an imperative gesture.  "It means you are to be rich and  happy in your own way," she said  clearly. "I have not been so blind as  you thought. Mr. Jcrmain does not  really care for me. He loves Susan  Weir, though he has never let himself  acknowledgeit."   ,  Jcrmain laughed heartily. "In that  case you must, needs console me," he  said. ."Haven't you heard tho news?  Susan eloped last night with Allen  Lee, and I have been ready to murder  him this last six weeks. I was so sure  he had bewitched our fairy hero."  He touched. Fenella's arm reverently  ns he spoke. She shrank from him  and made as if to speak. Miss De  Vaux put a hand over her lips, saying:  "Let me tell him. Fenella. Tie ought  to know the truth. Our girl was bewitched, John. That is the true word  for it. But she had the strength, the  sense, to save herself���������would not hear  of a secret marriage. She had found  him out. She is going away because I  have been cruel. Tell her she must  stay."  "I have no right to tell her anything," Jermain said, paling through  all his healthy tan. Then to Fenella  he said: "But you need not go, dear,  to���������escape me. I shall never force myself on you.   I love you too well"���������  "It is not that," Fenella interrupted.  "I will stay, and gladly, on one condition."  "Name it," Jermain said, looking  away.   Fenella drew back a step.  '"That I may be my aunt's companion, not her heiress," she said. "If  you will let her adopt you"���������  She stopped, faltering,the least bit.  Jermain frowned blackly, but suddenly  his face cleared as if by magic. "I believe that is the best way out." be said,  wilh a slight significant gesture to Miss  De Vaux.  The now 'order of things made little  outward difference.    Inwardly Fenella  chafed overs'.ight and subi le changes.  Materially "she-* had no cause 'for complaint.    Her salary was a little mere  than her quarterly allowance had been.1  Her duties were less than she had vol ���������  uurariiy  taken  on  herself in  the  old  days.    She had r..reattr absolute freedom, but she mi&sed something.  Miss, De Vaux no logger talked to  her of the future.' Now" aud again she-  said of such or such a plan. "John  will keep it up." And oiicc she went  so far as to add that in; the event of  Fenella's marriage after five years'  satisfactory service sho would give her  a wedding outfit and a modest if com-'  fortable dowry. Further, she made  not the least objection to potential  lovers. If they asked her'leave to  court lier nioce, she said ���������* in variably  Fenella was free to choose for herself.  Thus" a-year passed. Fenella was  finding out things���������things bitter-, to he  borne. Sho had thrown away happiness because, forsooth, she fancied -it-  was to be thrust upon her. , Jermain  was as kind as ever, as'chivalrously  courteous,' but nothing more. Of course  ho no longer cared for h'er; of course,"  too,'he would marry as soon as he  found a lucky woman' exactly to his  mind. Until, that happened Fenella'  meant, .to stay. Afterward��������� She  stopped there,, blind and, trembling.- /'  ,. Still it was'like a knife, thrust when  Miss De Vaux said: "Fenella,' John  is to marry shorty, so on many accounts' I think it wise to get another  companion, lie has chosen well. As  , he is to live with me after he marries,  it is almost certain he would not like  to have you keep the place."' ,  . "I understand. 14 will "go," Fenella  said through stiff lips, then, -waiting'  for no answer, stumbled blindly away.  In the'briefest time she was walking  down the avenue,*'looking neither to  right nor' left, her eyes still unseeing.  Half way to the gate sho rah plump  into Jermain's arms. ' They closed  about her in most, possessive fashion  as he said, with -his lips on her hair,  answering her incoherent murmurs:  'fOf course, Aunt Pam needs another  companion. * You ��������� are going to be my.  -precious wife." ~' :  ���������������������������   ,-" ' I "  Origin  o������ Earringrsi.  According to the*Moslem creed .the'  reason' why every Mohammedan lady  considers it her duty to wear earrings  is attributed to tbe following curious  legend: Sarah, tradition tells us, was  so jealous of the preference shown by  Abraham for Hagar that she took a  solemn vow that she would give herself no rest until she had mutilated the  fair face of her hated rival and bond-,  maid. Abraham, who had knowledge  of his wife's intention, did his utmost  to pacify his imbittered spouse, but  long in vain. At length, however, she  relented and decided to forego her plan  of revenge. But how was she to fulfill the terms of the vow she had entered into? After mature reflection  she saw her way out of the difliculty.'  Instead of disfiguring the lovely features of her bondmaid she contented  herself with boring a hole in each of  the rosy iobes of her ears.  The legend does'.not inform us whether Abraham afterward felt it incumbent upon him to mitigate the smart of  these little wounds by the gift of a  costly pair of earrings or whether Hagar procured the^ trinkets for herself.  The fact remains, hoAvever, that the  Turkish women, all of whom wear  earrings from their seventh year, derive the use of these jewels from Ha-,  gar, who is held in veneration as the  mother of Ishmael, the founder of their  race.   Blonds In History.  It is certain that blond, long headed  men once played a great role in history,  for it was they who colonized Galatia  aud brought home the treasures of  Greece and Italy to Toulouse, who  overthrew the Roman empire in the  west and won England from tlie Britons. It is equally certain that this physical type was onc*e-much-more dominant and widely distributed than it is  now and that it is tending to die out.  This is especially true of that pronounced form of blonds which is distinguished by red hair. Red haired  persons'dp not now constitute tho majority in any known tribe or nation,  but one authority, sets forth grounds  for thinking that' red hair was once  much more prevalent.  It must have occurred, for instance,  among the Brahmaus, since they were  forbidden by tho laws of Manu to  marry red haired women. There is no  doubt that blonds and red haired persons are still encountered about the  Hindoo Kush, among the tribes from  whom the Brahmaus sire supposed to  have been immigrant'?. But obedience  to the law mentioned would, in the  course of time, annihilate the tendency  to their reproduction.  Not   an Optical   Illusion.

But little is known concerning-the  history of the-iron.'crown until after  the coronation of Agiluif. king of the  Lombards. It is generally believed that  it was made for that monarch in the  year G91. It was used by Charlemagne  and by all the after emperors of France,  who were kings of the Lombards. Napoleon put it on his head when he was  in Milan in 1S0O, saying, "God hath  given it to inc." ,  This celebrated relic is now in Naples among the state jewels. It was  captured and taken by tho Austria ns-to  Vienna in 1S59, but was returned to Italy in 1SGU.

He stood  at the door of a neat cottage one morning in spring-with rather a disconsolate  air. ; ,,<���������.,        ,  ���������* "I do miss Sis Therese,'.' he said re-'  ,gretfully, "and her dying so unexpected-like has upset all my ideas of life."  He turned and gazed ruefully at the  comfortable sitting room, now in the  utmost disorder. ,. On the--top of the  sewing machine' 'box - paraded a fine  ' gray and red parrot that seemed to enjoy the situation.  r   "Hello,  captain!"  she  cried.    "Ship  ahoy!" \       ��������� >  ��������� "Wish there was, Polly," retorted the  captain, "but there's none in sight. I'll  go , down town and advertise for a  housekeeper to clean up this place." ���������',  "Ship ahoy, 'ship, ahoy!" -screamed  the parrot, and again the captain re-,  turned as he locked* the door:  "I wish there was, Polly."-  . After he had-put, an advertisement  in several newspapers the captain  ' walked, slowly along the-streets-toward .the markets, r nis eye .caught  sight of a-large blue and white sign',  "Servants Supplied." \ '   I v"  Vlt will not do any! harm for ine to  slop in there," quoth the captain.  As he stepped into the entry he saw  a-woman hesitating'in front of him.  The captain declared ever afterward  that when she turned about "you could  have knocked me down with a feather." She was not a girl, but a-woman  approaching middle age,-, and with "a  pale and gentle face.   * ���������        ;  "Scuse'me, "ma'am. I am trying'to  find me ,a housekeeper."        ' ' '    '  The woman looked.intently at him.  "I am trying to'find, a place where I  can do something," she said wearily.  "If you would notmind trying to put  "up with me and my  Polly"��������� eagerly  began the captain.  "Is Polly your wife?" she queried.  "Oh, no; she's the parrot."  -"  The woman hesitated.  '    "I, have'always  lived in ��������� the country,"  she answered.  "butv my \brother  died, and I thought I could do better  in the city.   I haven't money enough to  go back���������in fact. I haven't any at all.".  ' The captain looked at her and speedily grasped the facts of the-case.  '' "I'm most old enough to be your father," he said kindly, although he was  not,  "and you  must come right along  nnd straighten up that house for Polly  and me.   First we will get some breakfast."  An hour later the captain unlocked  the house door. Polly, much excited at  the advent of a wohian. swung and  screamed in her cage:       -,  ."Captain, ship ahoy! Captain, ship  nhoy!"  A week went by, and the burly captain stood trimming his grapevines  when ho saw a woman of rather generous proportions coming in at the  front gate, followed by a boy carrying  a large valise. He knew that this must  be his sister Melinda from, California,  who could .not attend her' sister's funeral on account of illness. His spirits  sank lower and lower as he climbed  the back steps. The new housekeeper  had proved quiet, clean and very industrious. Polly was never happy unless  she was1 in sight. In short, his sorrow  for the death of Sister Therese was  now softened because of no, lack of  creature comforts.  In the little sitting room Polly began,  angrily   screaming.     One  of  the  first  acts of the newcomer was to throw a  heavy wrap over the cage.  "You'll smother her." said a quiet  voice.   "I'll take her out on the porch."  "Who are you. anyhow?"  quoth an  irate female voice.    .'Where's the cap-'  -tain?"' '  "Here I am." said that individual  weakly, appearing at the door. "I���������we  didn't expect you, .Melinda."  "I suppose not I came as soon as I  could. Therese left me all her things,  you see."  The captain looked about him, much  amazed.  ��������� . "What things?"  "Why. the housekeeping things. You  won't want tb keep house. You can  board."  -No: I won't board," protested, the  captain. "Polly and me are comfortable right, here."  "But you cannot live this way," repeated theCalifornia'sister.* .."You will  be stolen from and imposed upon.  Therese wrote me that if she ever had  to go to come right on and break up  for you.   So I've come."  The captain gazed at her, awestruck,  fascinated at her daring. What woman was this, even of bis own blood,  who would so ruthlessly destroy all  his comforts? The captain began to  realize. He went out on to, the porch  and brought in the parrot.  "It's too sunny for Polly out there,"  he said. "I never set her out until toward noon."  .The quiet woman entered with"a cup   .  of ten'and'some sandwiches.    The.vis-  itor grew'calmer when [refreshed.  "I   will   just  get  a   little   nap,"   she  said, yawning, "and them,HI begin at ,  once  on   Sister  Therese's  clothes  and  -  tilings.    1 can't spare any time that's    ���������  not necessary.    I'm needed at home."  ���������  As' soon as the house became quiet  the captain stepped out'on to the back-  porch. . Tilly, the, quiet one, was shelling peas on the top step.   .     *  -    -  "She. wants  me to ' go to boarding,'  .  Tilly." " '  ���������        ���������'���������*���������'-���������*.

The parrot laughed a little slyly and said soft-   ���������  ly: -'    '   , '  "Captain, ship ahoy!"  "I  hope  so,  Polly.    Do you know,  Tilly, that this is my house' and that I  'bought the furniture, every stick of it?"  .    "Yes, sir."

"Yes, sir, I suppose so." ���������   ' .   ;  - "Then why shouldn't I keep house as. .  long as I want to? 'You must stand by  me.

'  "' "Go ,and put on your other gown, if  you'vetgot' one," he said hoarsely, "and ,  if you are willing to' marry me we'll  _.  go down to the courthouse and "get it  done.

Ship  ahoy!" -  cackled Polly gleefully.* ' *  A   Negflectetl   Class.  When loolang around to discover social grievances or to find subjects for  philanthropic work, why has no one  thought of the hotel maids and waiters? Their lives are hard, for they  have long hours and must be on'duty  both early and late. Their time off is  taken" in snatches, and they seldom get  a whole day.  (A kind lady, observing this at a hotel, asked her husband to give his morning paper every day to the man who  waited at their table. The gratitude  expressed showed how tedious the man  found .his idle time when he was "on  duty," but had nothing to do and nothing to read.  A book or paper to a chambermaid,  hallboy or elevator boy is often more  gratefully, received than the ever welcome tip.  A little consideration as to unusual  demands meets with equal appreciation. Any one who has traveled much  and not kept his eyes shut soon* learns*"  that hotel work is hard for thoso who  do it regularly and continuously and  soon becomes willing to "be less exacting and more aware of certain needs in  those who serve which cannot be supplied by gifts of money. A little personal interest is worth much more in  many cases.���������Philadelphia Ledger.  Tlie Pln.net Mercury.  Though Mercury is one of the smallest of the planets, it is perhaps the  most troublesome to the astronomer.  It lies so close to the sun that it is  seen but seldom in comparison with  the other great planets. Its orbit is  very eccentric, and it experiences disturbances by the attraction of other  bodies in away not yet fully understood. ' A special difficulty has also  been found in the attempt to place  Mercury in the weighing scales. We  can weigh the whole earth, we can  weigh the sun, the moon and even  Jupiter and other planets, but Mercury,  presents difficulties of a peculiar character. Le Verrier, however, succeeded  in devising a method of weighing it  He demonstrated that our earth is  attracted by this planet, and he showed  how the amount of attraction may be  disclosed by observations of the sun,  so that from an examination of the observations he made an approximate  determination of the mass of Mercury.  Le Verrier's result indicated that the  weight of the planet was about the fifteenth part of the weight of the earth.  In other words, if our earth was placed  in a balance and fifteen globes, each  equal to Mercury, were laid in the other the scales would hang evenly,.   "^ j  7.  'Jl  m ? ���������.  0  H.

An old man at the  other ' end ' of tho  car - turned  to   his  j neighbor.^ "That reminds me," he said,  I "oi' 'something that happened ' to   my  { wife-years ago. r  ���������"It was before the days of conductors, when we used to drop our* nickels  into a slot, and they rah down a groove  to the box behind the driver.  "My wife had started out with a little change and one of those troublesome five dollar.goldpieces which used  to ' be .more commonly in- cirn..ation  than they are now. Her eyes v.-ere not  .good, and so she was nervous about  her. goldpiece and had it on her mind  all' the way downtown.., a  "When she took a 'car for home, she  met. a friend and" grew ^interested in  conversation with .her. She put"her  coin hi the slot absentmindedly. The  driver turned, as it struck tUe'bos. You  remember tlie coin fell into d^ glass,  compartment first, and* then the driver  pushed a lever which sent it into the  strong box below.,   . ">  "As my wile heard the click" of the  lever, she thought of her five dollar  goldpiece. She looked ' in her purso.  Sure enough; it was gone. 'She went  forward and spoke to the driver. He  said he hadn't looked very carefully,;  but'he thought there were only .three  nickels in the glass receptacle when he  pushed the leyer.  ."My wafe insisted.- ' The driver said  if she would ride to the' end of the line'*  the cashier at the station .would open"  the box. 'This meant a journey of two  miles beyond our street, and my wife  ,was in a hurry .J    -  ( "An old gentleman who ,,'sat by the  door said he was 'going to the end of.  the line and offered to give her $4.95  cents and get the goldpiece at the station.   My "wife thanked him and took  the money.'   When she got home, she  found the five dollar goldpiece in .the  lining of her purse.  "Next day I went to the station. The  cashier said an old gentleman had made  him open the box. There was no gold-  piece. The old gentleman had left,in  a rage, refusing to give his name. He  said he had been swindled, and did not  want to be known for a fool.,  "We advertised in the papers, but we  never heard from him."���������Youth's Companion.  Animal Worship Among the Hebrews  The Old Testament records show,  notwithstanding the various revisions  through' which these venerable books  have passed, many indications of animal worship among the Israelites,  which must have lasted for ages before the prohibition inculcated in the  second line of the Decalogue was formulated. At a comparatively late date  "Jehovah was' worshiped under the  popular symbol of a bull, while the  twelve oxen upholding the laver in  Solomon's temple, as^well as the horns  -adorning the altar, were drawn from  the prevalent bull worship."  Modern research has also proved tbat  the cherubim were x-epresented in the  form of winged bulls. M. Lenormant  in his famous book on the "Beginnings  of History" says that during the time  of the kings and prophets "most assuredly the cherubim, as there described, are animals."  A   yisliti-n-ur   Bislioi*.  On one occasion Bishop Selwyn was  going down the river Waikato with a  Maori when the latter, who was very  'lazy, left off paddling .the canoe, at the  same time muttering that if Selwyn  were not a bishop he would���������well, "go  for him." In a moment the bishop told  the man to turn the canoe ashore,  whore, stripping himself of everything  episcopal, lie 'said, pointing to his  robes, etc: "The bishop lies there; the  man is here. I am quite ready; come  on." The Maori did not "come on,"  however, but quietly resumed his work  without another murmur.���������London Tit-  Bits.   ������������������'������������������-���������  New Vorlc Slici-ilTs.  The reason why the sheriff of New  York cannot be elected to two successive terms is this: It lis the sheriff's  duty to carry out the process of courts  against official delinquents during trial  and after conviction. Should a sheriff  endeavor forcibly to hold over for a  second time after having been defeated  for re-election he would be the instrument of the court's process against  himself, a paradoxical position which  the law avoids by making him ineligible for re-election.  ���������>.,. pf.i'  i.- -V i  'I  "i ���������  i    ���������riiV���������������v.(  * > <��������� L*-"*l  ,    < 1      it   .������*._      I  >   'i        "__ ���������ilj,-l  r        V    fi f At  -*������������������-.     -^    f       "**       I  .t -r I  .,-  --v        V-  I  I NO?  , ''il >���������"'*-1  " **Jt j*"  v'', "-*> XI  yy-m  ���������-������������������, > * *' *-. i  V..T.',',   ���������'/  i     &_������i ^   t   i,*t ���������    ���������  ..<---*. . ,  j.     . .jJ::r 11  USE EDDY'S  IIHPERVIOUS SHEATHHV6  THE BEST BUILDING PAPER MADE.

He  remaiks "Let us delve for'a moment  into ancient history,'"' m doing which be  drop*; the roll of an observer and lets his  imagination do the work of memory,  hence the "arbluiy and destortion of facts  misnamed history.  The incedents which he mentions aie  fresh in mv memory, thutiyh at  the lime  of  the strike   1   was but a lad of twelve  v'ears of a,re.

As  for nnself my age is sufficient reffutation  to     Observers     slanderous    fabrication.  I^etween   the   going   to work  under  ihe  above  conditions,  and the  returning to  work  of lhe   engineers   in   the   present  strike, all compeanson is invidious. Being  ���������labeled at the bar of his own  conscience  Observers   vision   has   become so   ob-  liouo, the brand which all fair men  plac '  ed   upon him is so gailing,   he seeks   to  lessen his own shame by besmirching the  memory of  the   dead   and  his   children.  VV'e are sorrv that the observer has stooped to one move deep in his nature.       To  vend oneself is sometime admissable  but  ;  in the vending to sell  your fellow   work-  I  men for a pittance is unanswerable.  I Geo. iM. Richards.
