Lewis. ^        Q  For 30 years or more I had known  myself to be au honest man. 1 mean  that I had never wronged a fellow, inan  but 'of,-so mucli tas a, penny, though I  ' had had hundreds of opportunities.    In*  my business dealings I had been abso-r,  " Imely square if not a little too liberal,  and in private life 1 had gone out of  my ,way to prove my integrity. 1 had  found' umbrellas fand "journeyed half  way across London to restore them. 1  had found small sums of money and  paid for,'the advertising out of my own  pocket. I had taken in homeless dogs'  and fattened them up and sent them  homo in cabs. 1 had been cheate-l in  buying a cob. but in-soiling him again  1 had pointed out thespavins   < !   had  '"bought South African slocks at SO and  sold thorn at 100. though the market  price was 110. In buying and overhauling an old cabinet."! had found papers of value and restored them with1*  ont demanding.a reward. '  11 never occurred to me to pat myself  on the back 'for an honest man. but in  a  general   way   I   realized  that   I   was  1 FIVE NEAT PACKAGES OF BAN'S OK ENGLAND  NOTES  above temptation. 1 must admit that  it was a balmy feeling and that as 1  looked around upon my fellow men and  knew that not over one in ten thousand  was honest���������as honest as 1 was���������nay  self importance was greatly added to.  Several queer things happened me one  June day. I had been down to Oxford  on a little business, and as ! settled my  bill at the hotel previous to departure  the landlord made a mistake of a shilling in my favor. 1 called his attention  to it, of course. 1 had to make change  with cabby at the depot.1 and he would  have beaten himself out of fourpence  had I not called his attention to the  mistake. A ticket seller rarely makes a  mistake, at least in favor of a traveler,  but on this occasion 1 was given quite  a bit of change too much, and though 1  received only a gruff word as I returned it I had cleared my conscience. 1  shared the compartment with a traveler, a man who bad hunched up shoulders, pulled his hat low down and  seemed to sleep for the 30 miles he  rode with me. In the' baggage rack  was a paper parcel, but he did not take  it with bim as be got out For '20 minutes after being left aloue I bad no curiosity about that parcel.,. Then it oc-  ��������� ciirred to me to Inspect the contents  and be ready to turn it over as lost  property on arrival at the terminus.  My interest was -languid until tha  parcel was opened. . 1 had anticipated  nothing of value, but what did I behold? In that parcel or package were  five neat packages of Bank of England  notes, each one containing ������1,000. There  wasn't so much as a scrap of paper  with them, nothing whatever to prove  ownership or tell how they had got  there. The wrapper was common  brown paper and had been used before.  It  was a queer find, and  1 couldn't  1 make out whether tbe money belonged  to the passenger who had just left or  some one before bim. 1 had no idea of  robbery, but laid it all to carelessness.  After inspecting the bills l.retied the  package and smiled a bit at the consternation of the loser. Ois loss would  lie only temporary, however. The package would be -handed over in London,  and lie would merely have to prove  property to obtain possession. He  might wish to reward me, but I would  not wr*'pt a p������-rlny.  It \v;i< only when the train ran into  the siation that 1 suddenly changed my  in 1 ixt As'tlie porter unlocked the door  ami |ias.������������*d on and 1 stepped out the  thought' ������-;inie to me to tvtaiu that  ���������nniM'v I if fore I eould argue with my-  ��������� ir   mv  "eg*,  were carrying me off.     I  ������������������������ ���������iifUDifii' all the tiuif to give up the  parcel, and yet I was hurrying away  and dodging among the crowd. I really didn't come to myself until reaching  my chambers, and then,I was in two  minds. Conscience demanded that I  return the money, and the devil whis-  peied to me to retain it. I dodged between the two by promising, to return  it as soon as it should be advertised. I  even promised my conscience that I  would make'a long journey if necessary to restore the money. To show  you that I was still-an honest man let  me say that when a bill was presented  to me that evening 'for'the care offiny  horse Lfound a mistake of a sixpence  in favor of the stable and rectified it.  Yes; I was still honest, and I meant to  restore that money, but I**must first be  satisfied-as to the ownership.  Next day, to my great surprise and  also'to my gratification,.- no advertisement appeared.   It was my duty as an  honest man to either advertise or take  the money,/to the lost property office of  the railroad lino.    You will agree with  me, that it was, and'yet I brought for-'  ward a dozen arguments to 'the contrary and didn't do either one.    When a'  s week  had gone  by" and no advertisement "appeared," I''began,to look upon  the   money  as   mine.     In  three dayf  more I felt sure it was' mine.    At the  end of the second week I was'figuring*  -what use to make of it.'   It wasn't exactly that the find had knocked out all  the principles 30 years had "built up,  but that I had never before'been tempted.    Without temptation I had argued  only one side of the question.   After a  week had gone, by I dared not return  the package to the railroad, and after  three weeks had passed with, no advertisement the money seemed to belong  to me.   I said to myself that 1 ought to  advertise it, but 1 also argued that if'  the loser'hadn't interest enough to seek  to recover such a sum of money how  could I be* expected to?    Unless^yoir  are'a strictly honest man, as I .knew  'myself to be. you have no idea of the  .many arguments that can bo advanced  in favor of dishonesty.       >  At the end of three weeks I had determined to add the find to my bank  "account..and give it up when-called'upon.    Aye, I would even pay interest on  the  sum   and  any  extra  expense the  loser  had   been  put to.  , This  seemed  more than  fair  to  me,' and   I   figured  that my honesty bad uot suffered one  jot.    The money  would have gone to  the bank, as per programme, but my  valet stepped in.    He was not an honest man. as 1 am deeply grieved to say.  He could uot stand temptation. ** Coming across the package by. accidei   , he  tucked it under his arm and walked off,  and I have never since set eyes on him.  I could not well go to the police and  ask them to hunt for him, and so h'e  had a clear road.    After he had disappeared  I   could  not  advertise  for the  ,real owner and let him take the trail,  and so the dishonest rascal .was free to  head  for America,  where,  I  am told,  honesty   is   a *��������� scarce   article   among  men.    As a matter of fact, no owner  ever came forward  or has not up to  date.    That makes the money mine or  gives me the guardianship of it, but as  it is in the hands of a dishonest valet  and as I dare not put the police after  him I am ������5.000 out of pocket and have  nothing to show for my sterling "integrity  of  character.'    Sometimes   in  reviewing this case 1 doubt if it pays to  be honest,  but again  1  reflect that' a  clear conscience  is ample reward for  withstanding temptation.

Train. ,  ���������'The only real ,knockout blow that I<  ever' saw delivered," said a government  ofiicer, "was on a passenger train'traveling through.the mountainous section of  Kentucky a few years'ago. You know  those .Kentucky mountain- people are  haul propositions ~ when they get filled  with their favorite product, and they are  naturally disposed to make ��������� trouble 'at  any old time. I was on' the train- one  morning when a strapping Hoosier. came  in. Ho was loaded down" to the'gunnels  and was flourishing a bowie knife',and  threatening to kill every man,on board.  Nobody seemed willing ^to. stop him, and  he wen; through < the car cursing and  swearing and with his knife always  raised. There was an innocent looking  littlo fat fellow buried behind a news-'  paper.. He was pretending to, read, but'  he was shaking wilh terror. The tough  sport saw him". , 'Don't 'yoii try to read  while , I , am ,talking!' he shouted, and  with that he "ripped the newspaper-into  shreds .with his bowie knife. The little  man tossed oil a couple of fits/and then  the' fighter went for another victim.  "A wiry little chap was'standing in the  front door, and the, mountaineer made a  break for him.. Just as he raised his knife  , in his drunken effort to rip out the poor  man's heart the latter had the'presence  .of mind to protect himself. 'Look behind  you there,-rquick!' shouted.the little chap.-  and quick ias a. 'flash the mountaineer-  turned,-thinking to see au enemy. As'he  turned, the wiry chap pasted that tough  right on the point of the jaw. He hit with  his fist, but the blow-was true, and the  big fellow went' to the bottom of the car  in a heap. . The blow upset him. , He  quivered and squirmed like a dying hog,  and the knife-fell 'from his twitching  fingers.    He was not able to rise.  "Just about this time the short, fat  sport wliose' paper he- had ripped to  pieces came flying to the scene. Without  a word he jumped on the mountaineer  and pounded him in the, face with his  shoes. He kicked and cuffed him until  the blood* spouted. lie was the bravest  man I ever saw, ai though a moment be^  fore he was scared to death. Finally we  had to pull him off,,and when the tough  regained consciousness he sneaked to another car without stopping to get his  kn i f e. ,  "Wc passed a station about this lime,  and when the train started again two big.  rough looking people dashed-into tho car  with the same bloody bowie knives. 'Who  bit my brother? Who hit my '.brotherT  'The man who hit your brother got off at  that station,' said the little chap who had  landed the knockout blow, and after a  lot of cursing the two toughs went from  thet car. They joined the defeated tough,  but that individual was so well licked  that he kept his mouth shut and- never  sent his brothers back to start more trouble. It was a thrilling moment on the  train, and every passenger went up and  shook hands with the wiry chap, although  we did not give many glad hands to the  little fat fellow who got brave only when,  the mountaineer ������ as at the bottom of the  car."

' ' A man named McNair has devised a  system of pasturing sheep by electricity, and experiments are being made  with it at the agricultural experiment  station of Michigan at Lansing. r In recent years nearly every town of any  Bize has been provided with an electric  generating plant,  and   frequently  the  ��������� wires an* strung along country roads  from town to town. This fact led .Mr  McNair fo attempt the use of electrici-  0ty on the farm. ��������� For sheep feeding he  devised a curious pen some l.~> feet  'square, built of wire and mounted on  broad, flat wheels. This pen is designed to run In any pasture, even though  It be hilly. ��������� Wires connect it with a  email motor stationed,at one side of  the pasture, this in turn beinij connected with the electric wires from which  power is derived. A turn of a. button.  and ,the pen slowly creeps across tht-  field.   This is the essence of the'inven  tlOn. >    '  [     r . .  Two lambs and part of the time au  old ewe have been pastured "in the pen  during the summer at  the station-at  Lansing.    The field is planted with Iu  cern, growing thick and  heavy .   The  pen Is so arranged that it- crawls the>  "full length(of tbe, pasture in one month.'  traveling about two/feet an hour.."' At  (  tbw  end   of  this  time   it   is   switched  around and travels liack again.    As it  moves the sheep eat "every'bit of the  fodder, eagerly cropping next the for-,  word ,slde of the pen as it runs over  new ground.    A bit,of canvas duck Is  bung over one corner of the pen so that  the'sheep may'be well' sheltered, and.-  curious as it may .seem, -they have be-  - come so accustomed to the moving, of  "the pen  that when  they  lie .down  to  Bleep they snuggle up close to the forward end of the pen so that they may  " lie as long as possible  without being  ..disturbed by the rear end of the pen>s  It creeps toward them.        ,     * i  When the pen has passed, the lucern  that has  been  cropped   by  the  sheep  ��������� grows up again, and by the time the  pen" has made its monthly circuit the  pasture is again in good condition The  advantages of this electrical' pen are  that the sheep'are kept from running,  ���������over, half eating and trampling down a  large, amount of pasture, and it keeps  the sheep quiet,'so that they take on  flesh rapidly.  Tbe Flockmanter's Inning:.  The only thing to ,do for the insatiable  American  taste  for  mutton   is  to  "take something'for it," a lamb chop  or a leg o' mutton, says The Breeder's  Gazette.    Comment has been  recently  made on the  capital   demand  at  this  market for sheep and  lambs,  inquiry  outstripping the supply" and absorbing ,  the enormous receipts with scarcely fl  ripple in the  market     From   Kansas  City comes a  complaint that packers  are unable to get sufficient supplies of  fat sheep to keep their killing plants in  operation to full capacity    So keen bas  been the demand for mutton that packers  have  been   obliged   to   enter   into  competition with feeders for the range  bred sheep that should by rights go into feed lots rather than to the sbarabies.   Now that the run from the,range  is   largely   over,   dependence   must   be  placed on the supplies  from  the  feed  lots, and it does not seem that the demand at that   market   is  likely   to   bo  met   All this comes from the increase  in the appetite of our people for mutton.     Packers   at   ICanwis   City   have  planned   to   increase   their   output   of  mutton if they can obtain tbe raw material.   ObserveYttie. situation: Last fall  so many sheep were going on feed that  conservative -heads feared  for the. future of   the  industry.     The   enormous  numbers that came from the feed lots;  during the winter and spring were licked up at satisfactory prices, and  now  .killers are competing with feeders for  sheep.    This certainly  argues the expansion and the permanency of the industry.,   it is merely the taste of improved  mutton that bas wrought this  revolution     Tbe public knows a good  thing'-svhen it tastes it    The industry  is   capable  of   considerable   extension  yet, a������d the man who breeds and feeds  ���������j^ood sheep Is very apt to come out winder.

We feel sure this la a greater  profit than could be Khown by more extensive plants which are conducted  more for show than profit We know  a farmer who looks upon his Hock of  Leghorn hens as one of his most money making possessions because thoy  make him a profit of a dollar a heuJ  every year.  '' These two flocks are properly k^pt  because their owners take a perso tal  Interest in their welfare, and upon this  Is success founded.  We write these words to .encourage  those who. having a "'love for poultry,  think they have not the .-means to make*.  "a success'of poultry keeping, there's  no business where a little money can  be invested and make such large returns as to Invest It in a few. hens.  They may be kept on a small area, fed  at little cost, and the market is always  hungry for the products of the poultry  yard.  No amount of reading books and papers will make a good poultrymnn unless one begins with a love for poultry.  With that as a beginning and a desire  to succeed one is in pretty bad circumstances who cannot manage to extract  pleasure and profit from a flock of poultry, however cramped he may be for  room.  Whoever has as much as a quarter  of an acre of land at his disposal may,  if he will, keep enough poultry to make  It worth his while to take up poultry  keeping provided he is interested in the  business.���������American Toultry Journal.  r}   mm*. -  LO'JS2FOi,,..-*ALE,  ml5ni3  Apply to,  ;L.gW.

Sailer wnf exonerated by the courts on (he ground  of self-defence, but he did not long survive his murdered friend, boim- talo-u  off by delirium tremens, a mouth or two  afterwards.

This said letter settled a matter which  in au indefinite shape had remained in  Elizabeth's mind for about a year."  II er father's sister's husband (who  wa.s then a widowerj owned a mine in  Cidiiorna, adjacent to the Eagle Bill,  and this gentleman, whose name was  (.Godfrey, had a lovely daughter, mimed  El.-ie, who had been a,., class-mate of  Elizabeth's some years before. Elizabeth had often promised to -visit Elsie,  but her love tor her father's cotrpani >n-  i-hip had hitherto prevented it. Now  that she had to turn her attention lor a  time, to her own mine, she resolved to  pay the oft-promised visit to Elsie, and  at the same time, personally inspect her  own. i>o.sscssion. Accordingly she ar-~  r.-iuged with her father that he was fo  go on to Florence, in Italy, where she  would join him the following autumn,  wi-ote to her lawyer that she would  defer signing her manager's dismiss.il  for a month or two, and in a few weeks  found herself ,back to ber own native,  country. <-  After she had' been taken as near to  the Eagle Bill as the train could take  her she had still before her a drive of a  couple of dozen miles, over the rough  trail  which led to "Darcie's."  "Darcie's" was the name of the, place  which boasted of a half-dozen hamlets  iu the centre of this mining region.  These hamlets comprised the saloon  kept by Darcie (the .most, important of  the bunch), the postoffice, the store, the  trading "post" and the1' Governme.it  office.  'Godfrey's mine. "The Sure Footed  Colt," was- distant from "Darcie's"  some two miles,, and Elizabeth had arranged by letter with Elsie for the latter  to be there on Friday evening to drive  hei   over.    - ���������        ,   "      *   -  But   Elizabeth  had  made much better  tune   than   she   had   expected, both   b/J  stage and train,  and it was ,on  Friday  noon in.stead of Friday evening that she  arrived at "Darcie's."  The country had taken on its beautiful  vesture of June, and the landscape, was  lovely in its bloom and incense, so Elizabeth, who was passionately fond of the  glories of nature, decided to walk over/  to, Godfrey's rather than wait for the  drive-in the evening.     ' .  The young man who held the numerous offices of barkeeper, porter, stage  clerk, etc.. etc., at. the saloon, was on'y  too eager to do" her ' the' kindness of  pointing out to her the way over to  Godfrey's. But I am afraid his atten-  - tion .was so fixed' ou the fresh bloom of  .Elizabeth's face, ���������that his description "���������>������  the way' she was to take suffered  thereby.  How beautiful the world looked to  her that afternoon. The sky was of the  purest azure, and filled the .void above  the earth with its dreamy-beauty. In  the still .woods the vines formed themselves" into monster" mosques, in which  one could fancy that dryads held midday banqu'ets free from the cares of  this life. The flowers bloomed everywhere in profusion, and here and there  brooks flawed through the level patches  of the land, their A-oices dispelling the  solitude of the trees, and inviting the  feathered chorus to join them in their  serenades. Through valleys here and  there, to the right of the woods, Elizabeth saw rivers flowing, with the lakes  beyond, over the slumberous bosoms of  which large birds met in play.  "Oh! how lovely everything is!" the  girl mused to herself, "and what a pity  sin and pain and' hatred are in the  earth."  Suddenly she emerged from the woods  and came, at the same moment, to an  immense ravine, Avhile beyond, straight  away in the distance, stretched a lovely  low valley. She knew at once at the  sight of this that she had lost her way.  tor this scene was not in the directions  she 'had received.  Listening intently, she fancied that to  tin right of her she could hear the fair-t  sound of an axe. To this she turned  and soon fame to where a young mm  \i ith a pale, sad. yet refined face, with  ir.rge, frank blue eyes, was hewing pickaxe handles from some small timber  which he had cut clown.  "Good afternoon." --she said, in her  liank manner. "I'm afraid I have lost  my way. Could you tell me the direction I am to take to lind Sir. Godfrey's  mine."  "With pleasure," he  replied, dropping  his>  axe,   and  coming towards  her  with  the easy grace of a genileman.    "If you  will  permit me,   I   will  show  \o'i  to the  clearing about five hundred \ arils  Vou will then have to ford u  alter   that���������well,    f   think    I  you  Mr; Godfrey's qua iters."

Two women in the early part of the  last ceutury lived in .Virginia: They  were* noted for their common sense,  f/nd many of their sprightly sayings  are quoted and enjoyed to this day.  They were both Methodists, and their  house was a place of resort for the  clergy of that denomination. Of one  of tho women, known as Aunt Sally,  the'following story is told:  'She had a black silk dress which she  was accustomed to "slip on when she  attended church. It seems that once,  while conference was being held near  hor house, a Methodist minister who  Lad enjoyed her hospitality aud was  saying goodby ventured to remonstrate againsjt her use of costly apparel.  "Well. Aunt Sally," said he. "you  have been' very kind to me and niy  wife during our stay at your house,  aud wo appreciate your kindness. We  shall never forgot it. But. my dear  sisti'r. before parting with you I must  say tliat it has troubled my wife aud  myself very much to see you a devotee to the fashion of the world. I  noiitv with pain that you wear your  silk divas every day to church, contrary ro the rules of our order, and I  hope that hereafter .'you will refrain  from such a,.display'-of worldly' mind-  eduess.' 1 also- hope you will pardon  me for calling your attention to it."  ���������"My. dear brother." said Aunt Sally.  "I did uot know that my plain black  silk was troubling anybody. It hangs  up there behind "the door, and as it  Heeds no washing'it is always ready to  slip ou when company comes or when  I : go to church, and I find it v.e'ry  lntndy. . ���������'  "But. my dear brother, since you  have been plain with me I must be  plain with you.

"I don't think I have ever met a person whom it didn't do me some good in  some way to know," said.Dunham in his  earnest manner.  "You may change your mind in this instance," said the stranger harshly, "especially when you know that I am an accredited agent of the Monte Carlo resort.  That I'm sent out to, look up my countrymen who chance to visit tho south of  France and the north of Italy, and when  I find them tell them of the attractions  of alluring Monaco. That, in fact, I am a  genteel steerer for a gambling hell."  ���������"Promise' me to come and see me tomorrow," persisted Dunham, but Benton  did not reply.  They met a party'of men with lanterns  as they came in sight of the lights of the  hotel. They were just starting out to look  for Dunham.   They  raised a queer little i  foreign shout as the stranger passed them  with his burden. .   ^_  . ' ,f  "I'll come," said "Benton Tripp with an  effort.

"Just collapsed a lit-1  tie, that's all. The patient jade kicked  as you said she would, doctor. And' now  let me present my strong backed rescuer,  Mr. Benton Tripp, who"���������  But ,Benton had,slipped away in the  darkness. '   '  But he came again.the next &%y. Dunham was back in the wheel chair and had  propelled himself out to his favorite tree,  and there Benton Tripp 'came upon him  suddenly.  "1 promised you I'd come," he said' in  a hurried way as he met Dunham's glad  smile.  Then he hastily went ou'as if fearful  that, his resolution   would   not   last:  "I want'ito tell you just who I am.' I was  foolishly,glad yesterday that you,did not  remember it, but I am Benton Tripp, tho  defaulting,bank teller." Dunham's bright  eyes regarded him steadily/and he moistened his lips and went on.   "My home is  up in New .Hampshire, and when I left  college my relatives thought it,would be  fine to  secure  me a   place  in������ the  local  bank.   It was a mistake.^ I wasn't fitted  for the work.   I had strong business instincts.   Tlie restraints of_a. teller's position were irksome lo me.   The salary was  small, but that-didn't worry me.   There  -was all I needed for.my personal wants".  .ButI studied the markets early and late,  ,and'l knew that with a little assistance I  could bring handsome yields from small  investments. ' I1 was .wild' to 'speculate in  something.' One day I was sent to Boston on the bank's business and overheard  ���������a conversation Jn the train tliat convinced  * me a certain section of laud in the city  might   speedily   be  utilized   for   railway  purposes.   Filled with the idea of a suc-  .cessful speculation Lhurried to the owners of the apparently waste land adjoining the ,railway section  and  secured an  option on it for i������0 days., .  "Before the option, expired I took $12,-  000 from'the bank ancl paid for tho piece.  Of course-I told myself it whs only a loan  'to be  paid "back .with generous  interest.  It was.only a question of keeping it dark  for 'a few weeks, and then the' discovery  unexpectedly, came!   ,1  was  a  disgraced  defaulter.   My act was published to the  world.   At the solicitation of my'distracted friends I. was not arrested.-   I turned  over the land to the bank, understanding  that  the   president,'  Mr.   Jabez   Pringle,  " bought it in personally at "something less  -than 11  paid  for  it���������and  yet  that   very-  piece,   as   I  afterward   found   out,   must  have trebled in-value within GO days after I'left the place.'for my,friends made  up ,a purse*for;me,and sent, me abroad.  They are  an honest lot. "and 'there  was  -.nb   longer   any Jiome   for - me   there. - 1  knocked about i for a year or so, finding  little or nothing to do,- and then I sunk  my pride, and got this Monaco job.   I've  paid off every,cent I borrowed, but have  heard nothing from any of my friends for  many months. -They are honest folk aud  are .quite right in casting me, off.   And so,  you see," I was right when I told you.it  would do you no good to know me."  ;���������* "Sit down," said Dunliam gently.  "My."heart warmed to you," murmured  Beriton' a little brokenly. "You were my  countryman and from my college-^-from  -amid those associations that were the  happiest of my life. You can't imagine  what it- is to feel that you are morally  out off from both your country and your  countrymen."  '"I know what it is to'be physically cut  off," said Dunham with a littlo smile. 'He  put out his thin hand. "Won't" you sit  down, Benton?"  That night Dunham told his father  Benton's story.  "A bad "start," said the astute capitalist, "but perhaps a lasting lesson. Jabez  Pringle, eh?- I'll talk with the boy tomorrow. I've a little out to crack with that  old flint myself." And he chuckled slightly.  He saw and talked with Benton alone.  When they parted, he turned to Dunham. "Good stuff in the lad yet," he said.  "Tells me he has never gambled a cent's  worth at Monaco. Going to leave there  tomorrow and is-coming over here. I'll  write to Breed tonight and have him jab  a^sharp pole at that old hornet of a  Pringle."  And so the next morning a letter went  forth from the Front hotel addressed to  Hon. J. BuSington Breed, tho eminent  counselor at law, whose glittering shingle hangs high on ilrondway. An answer came in due course of time, an answer that made ihe usually phlegmatic  financier chuckle with delight.  "Call up your friend. Dunny." he said.  "I've got some news for him."  It was good new"-, of course. Lawyer  Breed, hacked by divers causes, had.put  the; screws to the flinty Pringle to, excellent purpose.  "He's going to publish a statement  over his own name iu the home papers  that your trouble with the bank was all  due to an unfortunate misunderstanding  and that your good name has been handsomely re-established. Further thau this  he has paid over to you a neat sum of  money, representing one-half the profits  arising from the sale of the land that  brought about your trouble on one condition���������no publicity is to be made of the  story. Ain't Breed a hummer?" And  he laughed again. '   -  Benton took the good news very  gravely.  / "What   will   you   do   now?"   Dunham  asked him as he pressed his hand.  "Get back to God's country as soon as  I can," he replied.  "Going home?"     y  "No." said Benton. "It's home no  longer. I'll go to New York and start  in afresh." He turned to Dunham's father.    "How can I thank you?" he said.  "Pooh, pooh!" growled the capitalist.  "Don't thank mn. I'm no sentimentalist.  I should have been as hard on you as old  Pringle, I suppose. Thank- Dunny."���������  Cleveland Plain Dealer.  army formed themselves into companies  of francstireurs to take 'part in the  struggle against the Germans. 'They assumed uniforms more' or less fanciful  and were for *the most part very well  armed. It, was their task to wage a  guerrilla warfare partly before the front  and at the flanks of the different armies  and partly at the communications in tbe  rear of the Germans. Their attacks/were  made by surprise or from hiding places-  and from ambushes.  The'honest German soldier was all the  most embittered by this behavior of, the  francstireurs and the national guards  because they were wont at need to hastily assume the appearance of .inoffensive  peasants by throwing, away and hiding  their arms and getting rid of every badge  indicative of military service.

I. asked him  if he met  hisA daughter'would'he do  the same  ���������uid he   said   he  would   take   off   his  hat   -to    ,her,   too.1   I was   thunder-"  st������-ufck., " The   idea* of  a'man  taking  eft his  hat to  his  own  daughter.     L'  asked iiim   what 'if   he   should   meet  diis- servant,   and the   said' he  would  take'off 'his'hat  to  her  also.     Then  T  ihrcAV up'my hands.   .In China we  don't show disrespect to women,'but  Me  don't go  to  tlie" extent you   do'  The parent is  superior-to  the     child  in China, it is for the child lo show  respect to the parent.  '   '/Another duty 'imposed   upon   the  children   in  China  is   to .support   the  parents.   'We  bring  them' up  to  sup-''  I'ort  us   in  our   old   age,   that's   outlaw.     For   a   disobedient   son.   who  has money not to support his   parents  h'e  -would be  severely    punished.      I  once had a young man  tell me that  parents   in this  counU-y were" bound  to   support     the     children, <. but   the  children  were not bound  to  support  the parents.     1 asked him' why,  and  he saicl the parents were responsible  as  they  bring the children into     the  world.    That, I said, was the reason  why he  should  support his  parents,  becai.se     they    gave him  existence���������  because they did him a good turn���������  but  he     differed  with  me.     In     this  country  when  children marry,  I find  they sometimes  live with  the wives'  mothers.    I can't find any reason for  that     ancl    that's      greatly  different  irbm  our  custom.  "The duty imposed upon the hus-  ,Dand in China is to be righteous,  k:nd and benevolent to his wife, and  upon the wife to obey. The hus-c  band must support tne wife. It is  not rare, however, for tiie husband  to obey the wife. T heard an American wedding ceremony recently where  the bride swore to obey and serve  the husband. That is the form here,  but J suppose that in practice it is  different. Tt is the same in China.  P.ul there'the husband doesn't admit  that the w-ife rules the roost. J lore  men are proud to say: T am governed   by  my  wife.'  "hi passing,  T will      mention     the  g-eat      importance     of   the  Empress  Dowager.       She  is   the  highest   and  most influential person in China. She  controls      even   the   Emperor.     Why?  On account of her social and official  position.     She is the aunt of the Em-,  peror, and entitled to his. respect by  virtue      of  the  family  relation.     She  adopted  him  and placed him  on  the  throne when her son died.    He oiigjit  to obey her.     So, therefore,  contrary  to belief in this and  other countries,  women      are  not  despised   in .-China.  When speaking of wives in our country etiquette requires  that We must  refer to them as  'mean  and stupid,'  though, they may be very clever.    A  .woman bereft of her husband     never  marries.     In some cases girls engaged do not marry at all,  should     the  ���������intended husband die before the time  fixed -for the marriage.  "The relation between friends is  fidelity���������to be truthful to each other. The Chinese as friends are faithful; in commercial relations they  are trustworthy. Documents are  not required for business transactions, word of mouth being sufficient.  "These cardinal principles or rules  laid down by ancient emperors have  been prjserved. In concludinig, we  may infer something that may bo  profitable Although   China   is   not  perfect, still it'has. stood well thous  ands of years and lieen kept together. I think that if we can learn the  good points of either it will be very  profitable to both. We must understand each., other better. It is important that in the coining together  of the different people we must judge  others from' their standard, and if  wo do this we- will, hot go far  wrong."  ��������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������� r    ,- -   Observations.

When the time comes to collect  this from her, she fishes the wad of paper out of the purse, hands it to tbe-  conductor and sits back in her seat  content with what she has done.  "The conductor bas to unfold this  piece of paper to see if it is really the  proper transfer. This takes time, and  when th������re are n dozen women on the  car all doing tbe same* thing'the poor  conductor has more than be can do to  keep his temper. Men,as a i;ule don't  fold their transfers, but content themselves with shoving the slips into their  pockets and then producing a crumpled  piece of paper when it is called for.  tossing It to the conductor, who has to  smooth it into shape.  "The same people wouid never tbink  of handing in a rail rot* 1 or. theater ticket in the same way."  Stowaway   Bride*.  Stowaway brides are hut as rare at  the barge office as one would believe.  It is quite easy for a girl to slip aboard  an outgoing steamer and stow herself  in one of, the buuks. below, decks, lying  quietly there until well at sea.

A   few   d:\ys-  later,   while  being  taken  back   to   1 he-  ship   for   deportation,-she   leaped   into  the bay.
