���������*!������������������'I ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  ONE WAY OUT  By WILLIAM CARLETON  Copyright, 1911  [By Small, Maynnid & Co., Inc.  CHAPTER XL���������������������������(Continued)  New Opportunities  Iy'AFFERTY at any rate was Retting  \. into the fight. His motive may  have been selfish ami I thuiK  his interest really sprang first from an  instinctive desire to yet into the game.  Here he had come to a new country  where every man had not only the  chance to mix with the affairs of the  ward, the city, the state, the nation,  but also a good chance to make himself a leader in them. Sweeney himself was an example.  For twenty-five years of more Raf-  ferty'8 countrymen had appreciated  this, opportunity for power and gone  after it. The result everyone knows.  Their victory in city politics at least  had been so decisive year after year  that the native born had practically  laid down his arms as 1 had. And the  reason for this perennial victory lay in  just this fact that men like Rafferty  were busy from the time they landed  and men like me were lazily indifferent.   '  Three months before, a dozen speakers couldn't have made me see this.  I had no American spirit back of me  then to make me appreciate it. You  might better have talked to a sleepy  Russian Jew a week off the steamer.  He at least would have sensed the  sacred power for liberty which the  voting privilege bestows.  I began to ask questions of Rafferty  about the two men. He didn't know  much about the other fellow except  that he was "agin honest labor and a  " tool of the trusts." But on Sweeney  he grew eloquent.  "Sure," he said. "There's a mon after ye own heart, me biy. Faith he's  dug in ditches himself an he knows  wot a full dinner pail manes."  :"Whai's his business?" 1 asked.  "A contracthor," he said. "He does  big jobs for the city."  I-Ie let himself loose on what Sweeney proposed to do for the ward if  elected. He would have the government undertake the .-.dredging of the  harbor thereby giving hundreds of jobs  to the local men.. He would do this  thing and that���������������������������all of which had for  their object apparently just that one  goal. It was a direct personal appeal  to every man toiler. In' addition to  ���������������������������,this, .Rafferty let. drop a hint or two  that Sweeney had jobs in "his own business which he filled discreetly from the  -.ranks.of .the wavering.' It wasn't more  fhan-a month later,- by" lhe. way, that  Rafferty himself was appointed a foreman in the' firm "of Sweeney Brothers.  But apart from the merits- of the  question, the thing that impressed me  was Rai'ferty's earnestness, the delight  he took in the contest itself, and his  activity. He was very much disappointed when I told him I wasn't even  - registered in the ward, but he made me  promise to look after that as soon as  the lists were again opened and made  an appointment for the next evening  to take mc round to a rally to meet  the boys.  I went and was escorted to the home  of the Sweeney Club. It was a good  sized hall up a long flight of stairs.  Through the heavy blue smoke which  filled the room I saw the walls decorated with American flags and the framed  crayon portraits of Sweeney and other  local politicians. Large duck banners proclaimed in black ink the current catch lines of the campaign. At  one end there -was a raised platform,  the rest of the room was filled with  wooden settees. My first impression  of it all was anything but favorable.  -ILlooked-rather__tawd_ry__and cheap.  that the man wasn't as black as he  was painted. He was neither oily nor  stewk in his manner. We chatted a  minute, and 1 think he was a hit surprised in tne. lie wanted to know  where I lived, where 1 was working,  and how much of a family 1 had. llu  put these questions in so frank and  fatherly a fashion that they didn't  seem so impertinent to me at th������������������ lime  was just as well satisfied. 1 didn't  mind.the preliminary training bul 1 felt  1 would as soon he added a couple  more years to his age before he really  played football, even if it was in him  to play. My point had been won .vhen  he went out and tried.  Al the end of the first four months  in the school 1 thought 1 saw a general   improvement  in   him.   ������������������������������������������������������ He   held  as   they   did   later.      Some  one  ealled   llinlse|t- better lor one thing���������������������������w'ilh his  lum  und  as  he   turned away,  he said   head   hi���������������������������hur   ilI)(1   llis   shoulders   well  to Kafl'eriy,  "See me before you go, Dan."  Then be said lo me,  "1 hope I'll see you down here often,  Carleton."  With that Dan took me round and  introduced me to Tom.'Dick and Harry  or rather to Tim, Denny and Larry.  This crowd came nearer to the notion  I had of ward politicians. They were  a noisy, husky-throated lot, but they  didn't leave you in doubt for a minute but what every mother's son of  them was working for Sweeney as  though they were one big family with  Daddy Sweeney at the head. You  could overhear bits of plots and couiir  ter plots on every side. I was offered  a dozen cigars in as many minutes  and though some of the men rather  shied away from me at first a whispered endorsement from .Dan was all  that was needed to bring them back.  There was something contagious  about it and when later the meeting  itself opened and Sweeney* rose to  speek 1 cheered him as heartily as  anyone. By this .time a hundred or  more other men had come in who  looked more .outside the inner circle.  Sweeney spoke simply and directly.  It was a personal appeal he made,  based on promises. 1 listened with  interest and though it seemed to me  that many of his pledges were extravagant he showed such a good spirit  back of them that his speech on a  whole produced a favorable effect.  At any rate I came away from the j  meeting with a stronger personal interest in politics than I had ever felt  in my life. Instead of seeming like  an abstruse or vague issue it seemed  to me pretty concrete and pretty vital.  It concerned me and my immediate  neighbors. Here was-a man who was  going to Congress not as a figurehead,  but "to make laws for'Rafferty and for  me. He was to be my congressman  if I choose to help make him such. He  knew my name, knew my- occupation,  knew that I had a. wife and one child,  knew my address.' 'And'I-'want to  say that he didn't forget them either..  As I walked back through the brightly lighted streets, which were still as  rnucli alive as at high noon, I felt that  all this was my ward and* my city.  1 wasn't a mere dummy, I was a member of a vast corporation. I had been  to a rally and had shaken hands with  Sweeney. ....  Ruth's only comment was a disgusted grunt as she smelled the rank  back. This wasn't due to his physical  training either. lt meant a changed  mental atlilude. " Ruth says she didn't nolice any difference and she thinks  this is nothing but my imagination.  But she's wrong. 1 was looking for  something she couldn't see that lhe  boy lacked before. Dick to her was  always all right. Of course 1 knew  myself that the boy couldn't go far  wrong  whatever     his  training,   but  I  SUN   A   UNITED   STATES   CITIZEN  Dr. Sun  Vat Sen, elected as the first  president of the Chinese republic,  the  man now directing the destines of that  nation, is a citizen of the United States,  if   he   should   ever   return   there   and  . want to establish himself as a citizen.  Sen's   citizenship   was   established   in  April,  1004, by a decision rendered by  Lawrence O. Murray, now comptroller  of the currency, but at that time assistant   secretary   of   the   Department  of Commerce and Labor in charge of  immigration   matters.   The  history  of  the case shows that Sun Yat Sen was  refused admission at San Francisco in  1890   on   the   ground   that  some  years  before hc had come into that country  on a student certificate from the Chinese Government and at that time did  not  make  any   claims   to  citizenship.  Mr.  Murray  overruled  the San  Francisco authorities and declared  Sen to  be a citizen  of the United Slates because   hc  was   born   in   Hawaii.   The  history ��������������������������� of   the   case   shows   that   Sen  was  born   in  Kula  Maui,  in  the  Hawaiian   Island,   November   24th,   1870,  which makes him forty-two years old  his next birthday.   When he was four  years - old   his   parents   took   him   lo  China.   His father died shortly afterward and when he was ten year9 old  his  mother  returned   to  Hawaii  with  him.   Ho lived there until he was six-  knew also that his former indifferent  attitude was going to make his  path I teen  or seventeen  years old  when  he  just so much  harder for him.      Dick,  when   he   read   over   this   manuscript,  said-he thought the whole business was  foolish  and  that even  if I wanted  to  tell the story of my own life, the least  1 could do was to leave out him.   But  his life was more largely my life than  he realizes even  now.      And his case  was in many ways a better example of  the true.emigrant spirit than my own.  He  joined   the   indoor   track   squad  this   winter,   loo,   but   here   again   he  didn't distinguish himself.     He fought  his way inlo the finals at tho inter-  scholastic meet, but that was all. However,  this, too,  was good  training for  him.      J saw  tbat race myself and  I  watched his mouth instead of his legs.  I liked the way his jaws came together  on the last lap though it hurt to see  the  look  in  his eyes when he fell so  far behind after trying so hard.     But  he crossed thc finish line.  In the meanwhile Ruth was just  about the busiest little woman in the  city. Yet, strangely enough, this . instead of dragging her down, built her  up. She took on weight, her cheeks  grew rosier than 1 had seen them for  five years and she seemed altogether  happier. I watched her rclosely because 1 made up my mind tbat, ginger  jar or no ginger jar, the moment I saw  a trace of heaviness in her eyes, she-  would have to quit some of her bargain hunting. I didn't mean to barter  her good health for a few hundred dollars even if I. had to remain a day  laborer the rest of my life.   _ -  That possibility didn't seem to me  now half so terrifying as did the.old  bogey of not getting a raise. I suppose for one - thing this was because  we neither of us felt so keenly the re-  sp������������������nsibility of the boy. In the old  days we had both thought that he was  doomed if we didn't save enough-to  send him through college and give  him, at the end of his course, capital  enough to start in business for himself.      Tn   other  words,   Dick   seemed  again   went  to  China and  stayed  for  six or seven years.  He went to San Francisco in 1896  as a student and traveller and travelled in the United States and Europe,  returning to Hawaii, where he lived  until 1904, when the question of his  citizenship came up for decision. Before he left Hawaii for San Francisco  in 1904 he took the oath of allegiance  to the United States and his papers  showed his birthplace and general history. The annexation of Hawaii by  the United States in 1900 made Sun a  citizen of America and of Hawaii if he  was born there or naturalized there.  Under the act of annexation all persons born and naturalized there, being  citizens of Hawaii at (be time of annexation, became citizens of the United  States.  pulsive microbe. One can stand bravely the smells of a chemist's shop, er  of a stable, or of a sulphur bath, but  the stairs ot the Paris Metropolitan  railways, the corridors of the theatres,  the back rooms of the restaurants,  sanitary laws help them! One can jolt  and rejoice in a'country cart, in a dear  old four-wheeler, on the cobbled stonee  of a somnolent street of the provinces,  but if a taxicao is not an improvement,  merely a vehicle of destruction, to���������������������������  Montmartrc wilh it!  And those are lhe things which make  an Englishman lick his lips after saying "Montmartrc"���������������������������things that would  apoplcxizc him if hc suffered from  them in London. The whole fabric of  Montmartre is woven with the Englishman's best aversions���������������������������the Englishman at home and in his senses���������������������������cheap  female labor, cruelty to animals, white  slave traffic, food adulteration, child  labor���������������������������and what labor!���������������������������insanitallon,  discomfort, dirt, and vulgarity. This is  Montmartre as you like it! If a Londoner has a speck of dust on the collar of his coat he will feel almost dishonored as a citizen, but he will sit at  a cafe of the Place Pigalle, and receive '  in his bock the dust of a bedroom car-  pet sh.vken through the window above,  and drink it with delectation, Montmartre dust���������������������������holy relics.  Montmartre is the sensational,  gaudy cover of a French story-book���������������������������  it's only paper-deep���������������������������but the book is  the cheaper for it. It shows a mill  whero no corn is ground, and girls'  faces with old eyes. The spirit of  Montmartre is not a siren, but a monster holding fair France in a ghoulish  bite, and, half beauty, half beast, the  wonderful nation with the spiritual  face,' the generous breasts, and the  clever hands, sings to lure gold out of  the tourists' pocket. Her song is not  either sweet or deep, as sirens' songs  should be, but refrains of rythmic folly  which foreigners appreciate, because  not to understand is to forgive all.  tobacco in my clothes.     She kept them   Lhen  yUerly  dependent" upon  us.      It  out on the roof all the next day.  The men themselves who filled the  room were pretty tough-looking specimens. I noticed a few Italians of the  fat class and one or two sharp-faced  Jews, but for the most part these men  were the cheaper element of the second and third generation. They were  the loafers���������������������������the ward heelers. I certainly felt out of place among them  and to me even Rafferty looked out of  place. There was a freshness, a bulk  "aboul'him. that" his fellows here didn't  have.  As he shoved his big body through  the crowd, they greeted him by his  first name with an oath or a joke  and he beamed back at them all with  a broad wave of his hand. It was  evident that he was a man of some  importance here. He worked a passage for mc to thc front of the hall  and didn't stop until he reached a  group of about a dozen men who were  all pulling away at cigars. ln the  midst of them stood a man of about  Rafferty's size in frame but fully fifty  pounds heavier. Hc had a quiet, good-  natured face though a bit heavy. ' Ills  eyes were everywhere. He was the  first to notice Rafferty. He nodded  with   a  familiar,  "Hello, Dan."  Dan seized my arm and dragged me  forward:  "I want ye to meet me frind, "Mister  Carleton," he said.  Sweeney rested his grey eyes on me  a second, saw that I was a stranger  here, and stepped forward instantly  with his big hand outstretched. He  spoke without n trace of brogue.  "I'm very glad to meet you, Mr.  Carleton," he said.  I don't know that I'm easily impressed and 1 flattered myself that 1 could  recognize a politician when I saw one.  but I want to confess that there was  something In the way he graspi-d my  hand fhat Instantly pave me a distinctly friendly feeling towards Sweeney, I  should hav* said right then and there  CHAPTER XLL.  Our First Winter  The first winter was filled with just  about as much interest as it was possible  for  three  people  to  crowd  into  six or seven months.     And even then  there was so much left over which we  wanted to do  that we  fairly  groaned  as  we  saw  opportunity   after  opportunity  slip by   which   we simply  didn't have the time to improve.  *'  To begin with  the boy,  he went al  tri s=st-u d ies���������������������������w i t h=-a=zes t=,tlia_t_=pJaced_  him among tho first ten of his class.  Dick wasn't a quick boy at his books  and so this stood for shoer hard plugging. To me this made his success  all the more noteworthy. Furthermore -it wasn't the result of goading  either from Ruth or myself. I kept  after him about the details of his  -school life and about the boys he met,  but I let him go his own gait in his  studies.. _I. wanted to see just how the  new point of view would work" out "in  him. The result as I sav: it was that  every night after supper hc went at  bis problems not as n mere schoolboy  but man-fashion. He sailed in to  learn. He bad to. There was no  prestige in that school coming from  what tlie fathers did. No one knew  what the fathers did. It didn't matter. With half a dozen nationalities  in the race tho school was too cosmopolitan to admit such local issues. A  few boys might chum together feeling  they were better than the others, but  the school as a whole didn't recognize  them. Each boy counted for what he  did���������������������������what he was.  Of the other nine boys in the first  ten, four were of Jewish orijerin,  three were Irish, one was Italian,  and the other was American born  but of Irish descent. Half of  them hoped to go through college  on scholarships and the others had  equally ambitious plans for business.  The Jews were easily the most brilliant students, but they- didn't attempt anything else. The Italian showed some literary ability and wrote n  little for the school paper. The  American burn Irish boy was made  manager of the Freshman football team  ���������������������������two of them played on the school  eleven nnd the others were Just built  for track athletics and basket ball.  Dick tried for the eleven, hut he wasn't heavy enough for one thintr and  sn didn't make anything hut a substitute's position with the freshmen,   )  was as terrible a thought to think of  leaving him penniless at twenty-one  as leaving him an orphan at five  months. The burden of his whole  career rested on our shoulders.  But now as I saw him take his place  among fellows who were born dependent upon themselves, as I learned  about youngsters at the school who at  ten earned their own living selling  newspapers and even went through  college on their earnings, as I watched  him grow strong physically and tackle  his work aggressively, I realized that  even if anything should happen to  either Ruth or myself the boy would  be-able-to=kand=on=his^ov,m^eel..=^H___  had the whole world before him down  here. If worst came to worst he  could easily'���������������������������support himself daytimes,  and at night learn either a trade or  a profession. This was not a dream  on my part; I saw men who were actually doing it. 1 was doing it myself for that matter. Personally I  felt as easy about Dick's future by  tho middle of that first winter as  though J bad. established an_ annuity  for him which would assure liim 'all  the advantages I had ever hoped he  might receive.     So did Ruth.  1 remember some horrible hours 1  passed In that little suburban house  towards tlie end of my life there. Ruth  would sit huddled up in a chair and  try to turn my thoughts to other things  hut I could only pace the floor when I  thought what would happen to hor and  the boy if anything should happen  to me; or what would happen to tbe  boy alone if anything should happen  to the both of us. The case of Mrs.  Bonnington hung over me liko a nightmare and the other possibility was  even worse. Why, when Cummings  came down with pneumonia and it  looked for a while as though he might  die, I guess I suffered, by applying his  case to mine, as much as ever he himself did on hiB sick bed. I used to inquire for his temperature every night  as though it were my own. So did  every man in the neighborhood.  Sickness wns a wicked misfnrtunt  to that little crowd. When death did  pick one of us, the whole structure of  that family came tumbling down like a  house of cards. If by the grace of  God the man escaped, he was left  hopelessly in debt by doctor's bills if  in the meanwhile he hadn't lost his  job. Sickness meant disnster, swift  nnd terrible whatever its outcome. W>  ourselves escaped it. to be sure, h\v  I've sweat blood over Mie mere though*  of it.  (To be continued)  AUTOS FOR THE YUKON  Automobiles of suitable construction  could be used in the Yukon. Local  tests in the last two years in all kinds  of weather have proved that the gasoline does not congeal in the cold weather?"  Two years ago a large-automobile  was used successfully during the winter in Dawson and on suitable country  roads. Last winter the White Pass  and Yukon Route'Co., which operates  a 330-mile stage line in winter between  White Horse and Dawson,0 tried an  automobile, but it did not prove satisfactory, as the automobile's gauge was  much wider than, that -of - the sleds  which they were using and the ."sled  I rack could not" be used. . " '  The snowfall in the Yukon Basin between the first of October and the last  of April���������������������������usually about two feet���������������������������remains on the ground until melted by  the sun in-the spring. By mid-winter  the track is worn down in the snow  by these narrow-gauge sleds until the  banks on either side are IS to 24 inches  high, making it difficult if not impossible for a wide-gauge vehicle of any  kind to pass over the road.  There being* no blizzards and little  wind in winter in the Yukon Valley,  there are ���������������������������' no snowdrifts to contend  with, except on timberless ridges. The  roads usually have low and even grades  and were they of suitable width would  bo well suited for motor vehicles. These  roads, or'trails, were originally made  15 to 25 inches wide to accommodate  the dog sled.  When horses took tbe place of dogs  these trails were widened to accommodate the "double-ender" one-horse sled,  which is long and narrow, with the  runners turned up at both ends to save  reversing the sled, which is difficult to  do=on-such^nar-row=roads=when=tur-ning;  back. In recent years some ot these  roads have been widened for the use  of wagons in summer, over which  heavy loads are drawn by two, four  and six horses.  If some motor vehicle company would  construct a motor car of the width of  tho sled now in use in this country  it could be used to great advantage  throughout the whole Yukon Valley  for._specdy_ ..travel in conveying mails,  passengers ancl freight. The time now  occupied by stage between White  Horse and Dawson is five to eight days,  with relay stations at twenty-mile intervals, while an automobile should  make tlie journey at any time in the  year within two days..  SOME TALL; SOME SHORT  One is apt to harbor a vague impression that in order to join His Majesty's  forces it is essential to be able to boast  a vast number of inches.    '  Such ideas, however, are altogether  upset when one is confronted by a minute drummer boy, side by side with a  private whose height is nearer seven  feet than six; and one wonders that  such discrepancies are" not more  noticeable in the ranks���������������������������for, as a rule,  when a company is on the march, tiie  men's heads are surprisingly  level.  The explanation lies in the fact that  the regulations vary according to the  different regiments, and the particular  branch of work which the man wishes  to take. up. "        . .  Thus, a man can enlist in an infantry  battalion if he is only five' feet two  inches "in height; but -if he wishes to  'join~the Mountain Artillery as a-gun'-f.  ner, he must not, be less than "five feet,  seven inches���������������������������or, if _a_driver," five feet,  four inches. - ���������������������������_-;'*  The standards for weigbt and. chest  measurements    vary  " accordingly,    "so  Tommy .Atkins is invariably, well-pro-~  portioned, iv .

It does its very worst to be  wicked, because its English patron  would like it to be wicked, ancl Montmartre knows that its business is to  amuse him; but you have no idea how  hard it is to amuse others when you  yourself are being bored and tired. If  London truly liked Montmartre, if it  were to her not a tradition but a need,  London would have its Montmartre,  as it has its claret and shampagne. It  might not grow on English soil; but it  might be easily imported, without its  most objectionable sides, such as  Apaches, skeleton horses, bad smells,  and thin-tired taxis. Not that Apaches,  bad smells, and uncomfortable taxis  are unbearable in themselves, but thai  they seem out of place in a great city.

It is installed at many, local  points besides the representative pre-  fectural cities. ' At the time of thec  inauguration of the telephone, the government authorities did their best to  obtain as many subscribers as possible,  but they had*to open with 155 subscribers in Tokio and 45 in Yokohama. "  Calls at that time were only about  one thousand" daily. A few years  later the public began to appreciate  the usefulness of the telephone* and it  became increasingly popular. Consequently the government extended the  =system=in^l8*36=and^again=im_907,=,in=  order- to meet the general demand.  About thirty million yen ($14,000,000)  have hitherto been expended on the  telephone system; telephone wires now  connect over 1,600 citiee, towns and  villages: there are over 700 exchanges  with about 126,000 subscribers: The  wires extend over 440.000 miles, and  calls per annum exceed 400,000.000, tho  annual revenue reaching 10,000,000 yen.  The growth of the telephone system ~  Is" "undoubtedly" a "source "of "satisfac-  tion lo Japan; but compared with that  in Europe and America it is still far  behind in popularity and the extent  of its use. The number of applications for telephone connection '.s fur  In excess of the number of installations  which the authorities can undertake  with the fund at thoir disposal. With  each application 15 yens must be deposited. The government's project Is  to install 61.230 stations by-1912. with  an estimated outlay of 18.200.000 yen.  The excess of demand over supply has  given rise to the telephone broki-rpge  business. At one time the transfer  of the privilege of installation commanded the price of as high as 80������������������  yen or more. In the summer of 1909  the authorities undertook the installation of 300 connections in Tokio. for  those who offered 200 yen, and this  had the effect of pushing down the  'market-price" of the transfer to about  that figure. The yearly charge for  telephone connection varies between (0  and 40 yen, according to location.

S.������������������.  Tulsi    Das    was a  great  epigrammatist.   To menLion his name preach-  ,ng in a village1 is to strike a sympathetic  chord   at   the   beginning.       Ex-  i-resident Woudrow Wilson used to tell  hoav an  English  politician  who  was ai  rather poor speaker and sometimes ran  -hort  of  ideas,   used   to  mention   the  name   of   Gladstone   and   make   up   a  ��������������������������� luotalion  from   him,   planning  in   the  applause   that  greeted   the   name   the  next  few  sentences    of    the  address.  .Sometimes it is that way wilh the new  bazaar preacher.    Ho begins by mentioning the name of Tulsi  Das.    This  national hero of the Hindus was born  in 1532 in the region not far from our  city  of  Allahabad.   ., Tulsi   became  a  wandering  ascetic,   of  whom  even   to  this' day  there are .5,000,000  in  India.  Me,   however,   was   not   an   ordinary  fakir���������������������������a man who goes as naked as the  law   allows   and   who   covers   himself  with clay and ashes and lets his hair  mat itself daily.   Tulsi Das was clean-  minded, too.   When the time came for  his settling down as a poet he translated the old Sanskrit epics of obsolete  language  into Hindi,  the language of  the people.   Valmeki's Ramazan is the  source   and   inspiration   of   the   great  Mindi epic.    It itself is not free from  impurities,  and  it  is  one  of  the  few  glories  of    Indian ' literature  that  in  Tulsi  Das'  Ramazan  not one   impure  thought is to be found.   The worth of  ihis statement can only.be appreciated  by one who is familiar with the filth  found in Indian literature.    The entire  poem has been called a passionate protest    against    the  virtual  atheism  of  philosophical   Hindu   philosophy,     "ln  the Ramazan we are not told of a universal  nonpersonal  essence  in  which  one's individuality Is to be merged and  lost forever."    The  bits  of  hope held  out, the broken lights, aii are fitted to  help  the  wanderer  in   the  search  for  truth,   and   the  Ramazan  is  probably  now the best-loved book "of India.    It  has   been   recently   put   into   English  prose by R. C. Dutt, and -now it has  found'   its    way into the Everyman's  Library. ���������������������������.'-*>  Tulsi Das was writing when Shak-  speare lived.    Shakspeare is great today because he glorifiednhe language  of the common people,,as did his dark-  dcinned brother" in  far-off Hindustan:  Milton-thought a long "time over the  question as to whether he should-put  'Paradise Lost"  in  Latin  or English.

It has  been m operation since 1891, and is a  vest-pocket corporation of a flourishing sort, having no funded or other  debts.

Last  year it carried 53,070 passengers; its  net earnings were $0,019, and it had  the comfortable little surplus of $13,-  341  tucked away in  its jeans.

MORE STREET WORK WANTED  When the local improvement by-law,  was passed by the citizens of Enderby >  it was promised that street and side-;  walk  work  would    be   pushed ahead,  each year seeing   as much work done  under this by-law   as the season and,  requirements     would    permit.      The.  most difficult of the street work was;  tackled and disposed of the first sca-j  son, and the    cost,   ,vhile heavy, was,  more than offs.et by    the splendid re-j  suits.      The    streets   now macadam-j  ized have proved the best investment  ever made by    the   town, and" are aj  daily attraction   to  -he travellers in!  and out of the valley.     And the ac-j  tual cost to   the   ratepayers of this,  great improvement is but a mill and  a half added-  to   the present rate of  taxation,    which    is admittedly How.  Tt   was   promised   then,    that this  improvement   would  be continued as  the seasons would   permit and applications   were   received   for the work  from property owners willing to pay  half the   cost.       A   petition was received last   year    from the property|  owners on Belvedere   street, but the;  season was too far advanced to per-;  mit the work to    be oroceeded with7  Thc petition is    still . afore the City]  Council.

Ranson  T  lie had won the heart of Marion by  his. easy manners, his cleverness, his  point of view of the man of the world  who is worldly wise and free from the  tender emotions. And Marion smiled  knowingly, and gossiped with interest,  ;liu1 allowed ils aristocratic eyes to  wander  on   Sundays   to  the  Meredith  JJL'W.  The man himself changed. To the  oyes of .Marion this change was obvious. Il expressed itself in a reserve  so unusual in Clements as they had  known him, a tiuiet dignity so alien to  his lighl-hcarledness of tho past two  years, that the town wondered and  whispered   more  softly,  and  waited.  Jiul   there  shall   be  no   further   intrusion   into   the   sentiments   of   Cle-  habit' of  Marion  to ' ments, nor his actions, nor his thoughts,  man was presumed i nor the number of drinks hc took, nor  ' the  hours he  tossed  sleepless  upon a  restless pillow.    He did all  the usual  things, and some of the unusual.    We  will   not again  observe  him   until   he  steps from the buggy of the fair Grace,  upon a sunny,  balmy,  throbbingly romantic   Southern   afternoon,   and   escorts lhat  lovely  person  to  her door.  "May I come in a moment?" he asked.    "I have something to tell you."  They went into the sitting-room, and  the girl walked across to a low divan i  beside the window ancl sal down. Then *  she  turned  her face  to  the  man  and i  smiled  up at him queslioningly.    For  m-IE lriw-ofiicep of Milton Clements  had come to be the rendezvous of  the bar of Marion during that  season of the year when the courts  were not in session, and when it .was  either too laic for hunting or too early  for fishing. For the bar of Marion  was for the most purt still youthful,  and there was a certain charm about  Clements' hospitality, tree nnd easy  like the man himself, which made for  his own popularity and for the scarring of his furniture.  He was thc most recent addition lo  the legal talent of the town, having appeared upon its streets two years before, hung out his shingle, put a desk  and some chairs into his ollice, and  forthwith received company.  It  was  not   tho  ask questions.    A  to be a gentleman until he proved himself otherwise. Until such time, if he  were congenial, Marion accepted him,  took him in, threw open her doors to  him, as it were, and bade him welcome.  Tied ,to the outside world by only a  branch line of the Southern Pacific, the  town preserved,- lo a great extent, the  dignified, whole-souled hospitality of  the old-time South, entertaining the  traveler within its gates, bidding him  bide his time and tarry to his pleasure.  So had it accepted Clements, and so  had he tarried. Educated, well set-up,  and   good-looking,   he  fell  easily  into  the life of the town, and as easily be- ! n. moment he stood with his hand rest-  came a favorite among his own sex as  well as the other. An attraction, perhaps of more force with the latter,  lay in the paucity of information concerning himself which he gave forth,  a kind of fascinating mystery in which  he wrapped himself elusively.  Mai-ion was not used to mysteries,  and, as a rule, discouraged them as incompatible with harmony. But politeness forbade the pressing of inquiry,  and Clements was taken for granted  and the mystery forgotten.  When Grace Meredith-returned to  Marion from a two years' slay in Germany, Clements was established in the  good graces of the town.  "I havo been wanting to see you,"  Grace greeted him upon their introduction; "for I've been hearing about you  a long time through correspondents. A  new man is always of interest in  Marion, you know.'.'  For the first, time in the knowledge  ' of the town Clements was without  words. I-Ie stood for a moment looking  at" the girl, mechanically taking the  hand "she offered, oblivious to the  guests about him,, forgetting all.save  that he gazed into eyes that were frank  and large and beautiful. Then hc came  to himself with a start.  As he felt the pressure of her hand,  he flushed, and stammered something  about being very happy ,or pleased or  other things equally inane. He did  not know thai she had spoken. He  heard himself ask for her programme,  and felt .a vague, uncertain rage take  life within him upon finding that he  could have but one dance.  During the evening he followed her  furtively with his eyes until his dance  was reached, then lived through a rapture of happiness such as he had never  known. When he left her he felt that  the world was harsh and unkind, and  he cherished a murderous hate for the  man who camo to claim the next number.  An exhibition of devotion hitherto  unthoupht of by the joyous, care-free,  heart-whole man followed.  =W.O.U L a==y_oiu,L lke=xh lsjvlils LC_?_  IT IS OFFERED  FREE  A fine composition for the pianoforte,  Lv the famous composer, J.

"T am going away," he said at length,  quite simply, as though in continuation  of a subject previously under discussion. I-Ie was voicing a decision reached in his own mind, a decision wilh  which the girl was so closely connected  in the making of it that he was momentarily surprised at the change  which came over her face. It was sudden, fleeting, like the passing of a  cloud across the face of the sun, like  a shadow rippling in flight across the  meadows. And as fhey quiver with  sunlight after the momentary shadow,  so instantly her face brightened with  a smile. v*  "Not for long?" she asked.  Fie understood, with a start, that she  did not understand. He hesitated  awkwardly, groping for the expression  of what he had to say, conscious that  the evolution of his nature had "been  purely subjective, and that she was  apart. As he realized this, and knew  lhat the power was his, even now, to  retain unto himself his secret, and by  this simple negative act of retention to  insure for himself the_ continued enjoyment of his new-found happiness,  he was tempted to recant, al this  eleventh hour, the manhood welling up  from oui his soul, .and in the'face of  all to cling to his bartered birthright.  But this new manhood that had  taken life within him was stronger;  and as he stood looking down into the  girl's eyes, a revulsion of feeling swept  over him, strengthening him, and urging him to the consummation of the  part that destiny had allotted to him  in this scheme and drama of living.  "When a man is aware of an obligation upon himself," hc began, still looking at tho woman," "it is his duty to  satisfy that obligation. His knowledge  of it imposes upon him, irrespective of  coercion from without, a duty. Is it  not so?"  "Most certainly," she averred positively, an, expression of bewilderment  spreading over her face. As he continued, this expression was intensified.  He resumed abruptly.  _ ."A-SChooncr__w_en t_on _the_rocks_off _the  Barbados in the year IS���������������������������. She was  known as the Mary Eliza, and she had  rather a dark name; so that, when the  Mary Eliza was lost in a storm wilh all  on board, it was considered a good riddance, for there were whispers lhat tho  craft had many a shady voyage to her  record, and her skipper was supposed  to smuggle arms and ammunition lo  the Cuban insurgents, and tobacco and  rum  into the States.  "And when they found the hulk  stranded on a needle reef, with her bow  pointing to the sky, and her hold gul-  i ted and awash, they read the name  I .Mary Eliza and shook their h&ads  knowingly, and the daily papers noted  that the schooner was lost with all  hands. And they were very nearly correct, for the crew was lost to a man,  and the skipper was drowned like a  rat in his bunk. He had been drunk  for two days.  "Bui there were two on board who  wero not seamen, and these two Des-  Jny chose to save. When the papers  nenlioned the loss of lhc Mary Eliza,  i was noted especially that the em-  iczzler Brubank was believed to have  hipped on her for Soulh America, and,  if course, they slopped over about his  oceiving swift punishment and all  nat.  "The other of the two was an Eng-  ishi.ian     named     Straggs,     who  was  nown from Guatemala and Tegueigal-  a all the way to Caracas and Kio as a  olorious gambler.    There was scarce-  y  a  spot  on   his  body   that  was  not  larkeo  by a scar.    The man  Bi ubank  ��������������������������� ad been a gentleman.  "These  two  clung  to an  overturned  i.,at that somehow outlived the storm,  .nd.   after drifting  two  days under a  torching,1 blistering sun,  were  picked  .p, as luck would have it, by an English  yacht,  and   landed  in   Vera  Cruz,  ,\ hen   Brubank   left   Vera   Cruz   there  were  but two  people in all  the world  that   knew   he   was   alive,   a   thing  to  be  pursued and  punished  for a crime  - .lnm_:cir and the Englishman Straggs.  "in a bell about his body his booty  had been rescued with him, and he  knew that he could enjoy his ill-gotten  gains without fear so long as Straggs  was quiet.  "Sitting in the lobby of a hotel in  Monterey, .a month later, Brubank  picked up a paper published in the  City of Mexico a week before, and almost immediately his eye fell upon the  account of an assassination. A man  had been found dead in an alley, with  a dirk sticking in"his back; and the  item went on" to say that at the morgue,  or whatever they call fit down there,  the man's body was found lo be covered wilh a network of scars. Then Brubank knew that Straggs had received  his last scar."  The course of his narration was  marked by a breathless, palpitating silence. Only his voico. soft and melodious in (he shadowed room, broke tho  silence of the afternoon, He took his  eyes from the girl, and was looking out  of the window, standing erccl. hi.s hand  lightly brushing the table.  Tho girl ."at motionless, watching his  face,, her breath coming laboriously,  her body ri::id."  "After that," he resumed, without  looking at the girl, "Brubank wandered  widely, over many countries, except his  own.- But one day. a.s ho stood on the  cliffs at Tangier, looking out. upon the  Atlantic Ocean, there came to him a  terrible ponging for lhe life of his own  land.  "He would not trust himself in the  East, though his memory was as dead  as the crew of the Mary Eliza, and he  landed at Galveston at night. Then  he came into a community where all  were kind, and life seemed good to  him, and hc: tarried."  For a long time he stood quite motionless, looking out across the drop of  the lawn to the great grove of live-  oaks beyond. At last he turned to the  expectant girl and said quite simply:  "I had lo tell you. My name is Marvin Brubank."  The girl sat for what seemed an  hour, and was in reality three minutes,  regarding the confessed embezzler with  the impersonal scrutiny which she  might have accorded a recently excavated Aztec idol or the latest thing  in germicidal bacteria. Any warmth in  her seemed to have retreated to the innermost recesses of her nature. When  she spoke it was entirely without that  emotion which Clements had expected.  "Mr. Clements," she said coolly," "you  have told me all this without my asking it, acting unon the hypothesis that  I was in love with you. as you declare  place, you are simply maddened temporarily. Your kind of man doesn't do  the sort of thing you say you are going  to do. You may think now you will,  but that is because you, are still slightly insane. On cooler thought you  would get over this infatuation of  yours to fling yourself to a belated  justice."  She hesitated, turning to the window.  A man was coming into the long avenue.  "Your hypothesis was wrong," she  went on, without turning back to him,  "because 1 do not love you. I do. not  mind telling you that I am going to be  married, (hough I have been keeping  it secret. My fiance is ono of thc most  famous of the younger school of detectives, and J'have taken some interest  in his work. lie has been working on  four ease for two years. It has boon  discouraging."

The history of discoveries  and inventions reveals many instances  of this singular fact.  Jn mathematics we have the German  Leibnitz disputing with the English  Newton as to which of tlie two discovered tlie method of fluxions. ]n  astronomy Adams, the Englishman,  shares with Leverricr, the Frenchman,  "Lhe honor of discovering thc planet  Neptune. Morse, the American,.had to  contend with an Englishman for the  reward of inventing thc telegraph.  Englishmen give the credit of discovering the circulation of thc blood. to  William Harvey, an eminent London  physician of tho seventeenth century.  This discovery, which revolutionized  the practice of medicine, Avas made  known by Harvey, it is said, in -1616  to his classes in surgery. In 1628 hc  published it to thc world in a book  dedicated to Charles J. of England.  The  Italians  ascribe  this  important  discovery  to  Father    Paul    Sarpi,    a"  learned  Venetian   monk   who   died  1623 at tho age of seventy-one.    Sarpi  tory, medicine, and anatomy. In a  journal published in 16S-1, the Nouvclies  de ia liepubliquc des Lettres, it is stated that Sarpi discovered the circulation  of the blood, but did not make it public. His reticence is supposed to havo  been due to his fear of the Inquisition,  whose hostility to scientific discoveries  was well known and with whom Sarpi  had had trouble'on account of his efforts  in the direction of Church reform.  Ho did, however, it is claimed, reveal  the secret to.his physician, Aquapen-  dento, who had saved his life when  wounded by Roman assassins. The physician wrote a book on the subject based  on Sarpi's notes; but ho also was fearful that the publication of such a novel  heresy would got liim into difficulties  with tho Inquisition, ami he therefore  placed his manuscript iu the library of  Sf. Mark's.    '  Aquiipendento afterward removed to  L'adua, where he was appointed professor of medicine. Among his students  was a young Englishman with whom,  the 'Italians say, thc profossor became  so intimate that he revealed the secret.  This young' Englishman, the story goes,  was Harvey, who upon his return to  England, after the dcaih of Sarpi in  1623, claimed the honor of making the  discovery.  This plausible statement must, of  course, be received with a grain of salt;  b.ut it furnishes another illustration of  tlio fact that a great discovery usually  calls up several rivals for lhe honor of  having made it.  A    ROAD-BUILDING    EXPERIMENT  STATION  Thc Road Board of Great Britain is  about to establish a novel station for  testing different materials and methods of road construction in connection  with the National Physical Laboratory  at Teddington. A circular track will  be provided, and a number of experimental "roads" will be successively  built thereon.

Grabo)  '  if  [X  I,Ml  I" >  fev  P  fit  IJil  1  V  I-'  r.-  4 c  i -  I  I1'  It was not admiration for "the bronze  Saint Gaudens^made" that led Mickey  Calahan to pause beside it each morning on his way to work. His appreciation was rather of the stone seat which  swept in a shallow semicircle around  the statue. The builder of that seat  had designed it for use. Even on a wet  day, if you brought a newspaper with  you to sit on, you could easily be comfortable.  On   tho   back  of   lt  some   one   had  practised  up a  bit on  a  few  capital  ll's,   D's,  C's,  and  I's,  and  then   had  ���������������������������   gone  to  work   and   cut   "ABRAHAM  LINCOLN" in nice, lean, straight letters without a mistake.    On the bluff  -' that the first letters had been cut purposely, the artist had followed up the  name with a few more assorted capitals.    But he had been  careless,  and  Mickey,  who  had  studied  the  matter  .   out carefully, noted some striking discrepancies between the two groups.  Mickey stopped at the statue every  morning after doing three or four miles  of "road work"* in the park and before  continuing in a brisk walk down North  Clark Street to South Water Street  and the commission house of Georg  Stavoradapoulos. Mickey had aspirations' for the light-weight amateur  championship of the North Side. When  he won this he was going to indulge  himself to the extent of licking that  fat Greek, his boss, to a-frazzle, and  then seek another job along the  "street."  His desire thus to misuse a fellow  citizen proceeded in part from a strong  and quite unreasonable dislike for  Greeks in general and in part from an  Inflamed conscience. For his twelve  "per," Mickey, among other more or  less questionable duties, salted cases of  Al'country eggs each wilh three dozen  cold storage-eggs of ancient lineage.  Peculiar are the workings of conscience. This minor piece of dishonesty preyed morbidly upon a sensibility  ** comfortably toughened to other sins no  less flagrant.  Under the present necessity of holding  to   his   twelve  dollars   per  week,  Mickey,   however,   restrained - himself  from assault. * Instead, he sought the  > sympathetic ear of Rosie I-Iofer, and to  , her made his kick against the difficulties of his lot.   Rosie, unaware of the  moral .issues involved, and conservative  '- by nature, counseled a' slow but sure  advance through industry and honesty  to a'place of trust and "commensurate  remuneration.   She .was accustomed to  _ read   the  "advice >to  workers"   in   the  . supplement,of j the Sunday -newspaper.  "You stick and maybe your" boss will  take, you.���������������������������in .for'a  partner,"   advised  Rosie7 innocently. , ' . -  Z Mickey felt the.inadequacy- of words  to express 'the utter., impossibility of  . such, a catastrophe.  - _ '."Aw, I'm going in fer the championship, and then. I'll run fer president  like.him." Mickey waved his hand at  the, bronze -figure of the ' martyred  president.   ���������������������������'- ��������������������������� - -  , "He wouldn't have been president if  he'd been a prize-fighter," declared  Rosie severely, anxious to throw cold  water upon Mickey's pugilistic aspira-  .tions, which were a theme of frequent  contention between the two.  " "He would-n't have been a good one,"  observed Mickey, studying-the statue  with the eye of an expert. "He had the  reach, but his-legs weren't good enough. He'd 'a' been slow on his feet."  * It was not until some time later,  when Mickey.had made the one literary purchase of his life, that he came  upon the answer.which he should have  made to Rosie's aspersions upon the  pugilistic art. In.a moment of mental  derangement, driven thereto by the  daily, challenge���������������������������"Only Thirty-Five  Cents," Mickey had bought a* badly  worn two-volume life of Lincoln^ which  W  had reposed undesired for months outside the windows of the second-hand  bookstore of M. Trite. With the books  under his arm, Mickey had felt so self-  conscious, so much like one of those  rah-rah college boys, that he finally  buttoned them under his coat and proceeded timorously down North Clark  Street, guyed unmercifully by all the  cops he met.  !_7Theroaf ter.Mickey-tooU-an-occaslon-  al turn at the "Life," and arter laboriously wading through the first few  chapters of that somewhat dry work,  suddenly perceived tho belated opportunity of putting Rosie to rights on  Abraham Lincoln and the manly art.  He sought her outYor that purpose.  Mysteriously he summoned her from  the domestic duties pertaining to Hof-  er's Restaurant i*,to the beer-garden  adjoining. The garden was deserted  but for Herr Hussler, the noted trombone artist, who was enjoying a lonely  stein. Mickey led the mystified Rosie  down the most distant and tortuous  gravel path and seated her behind the  largest and healthiest rubber-tree,  which, in its green tub, was designed  to create, a sylvan atmosphere. The  situation possessed all the elements of  North Side romance.  Rosie, quite embarrassed, as was Inevitable under the circumstances, dropped her eyes and colored prettily.  "Say, Rosie," demanded Mickey in  his most serious manner, "you remember when you told me Abraham Lincoln wouldn't 'a' been president If he'd  'a* been handy with the gloves?"  Rosie's air of expectancy became  suddenly one of indifference. "Oh,"  said she vaguely, "I don't know as I  do."  "You did," declared Mickey accusingly. "We was sitting in the park  beside the monument. Well, I just read  In a book that he was the amateur  heavy - weight catch - as - catch - can  champion wrestler of Illinois when he  was a young feller."  "That isn't prize-fighting, anyway,"  answered llosie, as if to dismiss the  matter. And, though Mickey proceeded with a wealth of scientific detail to  demonstrate that wrestling was ,a  sport much rougher and morally much  more reprehensible than pugilism, his  discourse fell upon deaf ears. Said  Rosie with finality:  "Well, anyway, if you want to please  me you won't fight any more."  The argument thus having been  6hifted to purely feminine grounds,  Mickey could only retort with equal  personality: "Why don't you get thai  yellow-haired Fritz you're so stuck  on, to quit his club swinging and his  horizontal bars?" ,,���������������������������  "A Turnverein,". replied Rosie, with  dignity, "is different. Most likely  Abraham Lincoln was in a Turnverein."    -  "Only Germans belong to them,"  said Mickey tolerantly. "He wasn't a  German."  "Well, you talk to Vater about him,"  returned Rosie. "Vater was in the war,  and he knows."  "I'd rather talk to you," declared  Mickey gallantly.  But his effort was belated. Rosie  no longer seemed in a mood for badinage.  "Say, llosie," pleaded her admirer in  desperation, as he noted her evident  intention to depart, i'wait a minute. 1  want lo ask you to go with me to the  gymnasium dance. I'm on the entertainment committee. It's going tOobe  swell."  "When is it?" asked Rosie, displaying but mild interest.  "Two weeks from Saturday, the  twenty-fourt'," said he eagerly.  "I don't know," murmured Rosie, as  though bored by the idea. "Maybe I'll  go somewhere with Fritz."  She walked gracefully' up the curly  path, conscious of- the admiring and  anguished gaze of Mr. Callahan^ "and  passed into the house. a  Mickey .repaired, unhappily to the  park and his favorite seat beside the^  statue. He gazed at the bronze with a  feeling of .brotherly regard.  "I guess he had trouble with women,  too. I suppose every- man has," he reflected.  The thought that he was not the  first to suffer through the unreliability  of woman cheered him for the moment,  but the'influence"of the statue was not  wholly pleasant. It aroused in -him'  certain qualms-of conscience concerning the bad eggs of.Mr. Stavoradapoulos, for the Lincoln biographer had laid  rather undue, emphasis upon the. uprightness of,his hero., The sight of an  egg or a Greek fruit peddler or the  statue was sufficient at times to arouse  in'Mickey the pangs of remorse. And  the- peculiarly irritating thing about  them was the realization that to allay-  them he had to act quite in opposition  to the dictates not only of self-interest,  but, as well, of business sense.  Dark impulses to chuck all his  troubles and become a' "pro" assailed  him. He pictured "Rosie weeping over  the picture of the light-weight champion as displayed in the pink pages of  the sporting sheet. For it would be  all off with Rosie.then. It, was .really  Papa Hoferwho didn't approve of  prize-fighting; he was a good old guy  in general, but when he put his foot  down he was immovable. Rosie would  waste away in vain longings, and -the  future light-weight champion , would  go through life an embittered man.  Mickey blinked back a pleasant tear  and went home to supper.  When, however, Rosie next delivered  herself of a few moral generalizations  concerning the rewards of industry,  Mickey surprised her by f^uUinga_hy-  pothetical case.  "Suppose a guy had to do something  crooked to hold his job, say, maybe,  salt a case of eggs or something like  that. What'd he ought to do then?  I'm just faking the proposition, you  understand."  "Put bad eggs in a box and sell them  as good?" exclaimed Rosie.  Mickey nodded cynically, as one who  knew the world.  -VI wouldn't do-lt,"-declared-Rosie. ���������������������������  "Then the boss'd fire you."  "Well, I wouldn't tell the boss I  hadn't. Maybe he wouldn't never find  out, or maybe he would get sorry after  a while and not do it any more."  She felt she had ended weakly, and  in Mickey's gaze she read a tolerance  for the morally uncertain minds of  women that irritated her extremely.  Mickey changed tlie subject, and  Rosie, twirling her bracelet round and  round on her pretty wrist, stole a  troubled look at him now and again,  but paid so little heed to his remarks  that after a time he took himself off to  the more congenial atmosphere of the  gymnasium.  Rosie carried the problem to her  father for solution. She sat on his  knee and he pinched her cheek.  "Vat is it, Roslein?" he asked.  "Money, dresses,'hadts, junker?"  "Suppose," said his daughter, adopting the hypothetical method of Mickey,  "suppose you had a boss who made  you put bad eggs with good ones and  sell them as good. What would you  do?" /  "I would go oudt of der egg business," answered her father promptly,  "and run a nice beer-garden and have  a schones Madchen to sit on my knee."  But Rosie did" not respond to this  facetiousness. She seemed troubled,  and he pinched her chin with a large  thumb and forefinger.  "Who is drying to sell bad eggs to  you, Rosie?" he demanded.  "Mr, Callahan's boss makes him do  that," said she.  "So-o? And Mr. Callahan tells you  aboudt it?"  "He didn't tell me right out," replied  Rosie, "but I knew what he meant, of  course. He asked me what I'd do if  I was the man he supposed."  "If you were the man-" began her  father in mock surprise.  She shook him by the collar. "You  know what I mean," she declared impatiently.  "Mr. Callahan���������������������������does he often come  to ask such questions of you?" He  looked gravely at her downcast eyes.  "Well, you see he is always threatening to quit his job, and 1 try to make  him stick to it," she explained ingenuously.  "You wandt him to keep his job?  So?" he grunted.  "I'm afraid he'll go into" the prizefighting if he leaves his job."  "H'm," replied her father thoughtfully. "You like him so much as that  then?"  His eyes dared her to ask, "As much  as what?"  She became prettily pink, and as he  looked   upon   her   confusion   his   eyes  softened.  "I thoudt it was Fritz," he said.  Rosie tossed her head and curled her  lip contemptuously.  "Of course, he is choost von of dose  low Chermans, I know," he declared,  nodding sagely and purposely exaggerating his accent to tease her. "Rosie  .s a fine American name. Und Callahan���������������������������it, too, is a nice American name  ���������������������������vat you call a Puritan or maybe old  New  Yorgk   Dutch,   nicht  wahr?"  "Vater!" came the muffled protest of  Rosie. Her face*was buried in his coat  to hide her embarrassment, but her  shoulders shook with laughter:  ''And vat advice did you give Mr.  Callahan'aboudt the eggs?"  "I told him he ought not to do what  the boss wanted, but to go on without  doing it and maybe the boss wouldn't  find out."  Her father turned her around on his  knee the, better to look into her eyes.  He knit his brows and frowned in the  fashion she could never be sure of interpreting correctly.  "My only daughter," said he, and  shook his'head sadly. "A child-of  mine.   Dear, dear!"  "What is the matter with that?" demanded Rosie with irritation. "Vater,  should I have told-him to quit his  job?" she pleaded. "Shall I tell' him  to?"  - "Yuide vidoudt a moral���������������������������sense,-dese,  vome'n," said her father in his teasing manner. "No,'Roslein, you let Mr.  Callahan alone aboudt the eggs. When  he is fired, you let me know."        **"  Mickey  was  duly  fired  on  the following Saturday in the forenoon.   As  an experience", it is scarcely, worthy of  record." Mickey  had  even  no "oppor-"  tunity of starting a" scrap, which would  have greatly eased  his  feelings.    Instead, with an affectation-of-nonchal-  ahce:and  with  his'week's"pay-"-In "his  pocket,  he strolled'.from the building.-  He had so much time that he stopped  to swing on the, bridge and to watch a'  freighter pass down- the. river .to the  lake.   Yet-he did not enjoy himself as  much as'his "unwonted .sense of freedom seemed to warrant.  ���������������������������  He drifted"'to the  park and  seated  himself beside, the statue to face the  future. - It was- a dark future, and the  sunshine that lay upon the stone and  bronze and filtered through  the trees  was little solace.   The statue was quite  as at other times.   One hand clutched  tlie lapel of the coat, one was held behind the back, and the meditative gaze,  as ever, sought the ground.   The great  bronze chair with -its "legs shaped to  the likeness of a lion's paws and  its  back carved with an eagle, still awaited  the speaker who had concluded his remarks but had not yet bethought-him  of rest. 7' ���������������������������    - ,   '-  It came to Mickey suddenly that the  statue could never change. It was thus  for always. "If a guy dies quick when  he's made good, he's there for keeps,"  reflected Mickey gloomily. But when  he couldn't make good?���������������������������Mickey strolled. of������������������ _jn_the direc.Uon_of._the._beer__���������������������������  "Not that," she answered calmly;  "but to help father."  He brought his chair down to its  four legs with a thump. "On the level,  Rosie?" he, asked. "No kidding?"  "Uh-huh," said she.  "But your dad won't find me the  goods," he said, and his tone conveyed  a genuine n-iodesty.  "Oh. father does what I tell him to,"  she answered. "No, really, he thinks  you're all right. I told him about the  eggs."  But Mickey appeared bent on other  things. "How about Fritz?" he demanded, gazing hard upon her.  She raised her eyes fo him and colored prettily. "Oh, Fritz?" said she  indifferently. "He has nothing to do  with���������������������������it."  THIS is a HOME DYE  j[hat anyone  can use  garden.  Rosie looked a polite but no+. surprised inquiry.  "Sure, taken into partnership and  having a month off before I begin on  the new job," said Mickey with delicate irony, in answere to her unspoken question.  Rosie led the way into the garden.  No one was there but Friedrich, who  was washing tho tables. Mickey tilted  back-In his-chair.-His manner was one  of reckless bravado.  "Living off my money," he continued  cheerfully.  "Have you left your place?" inquired Rosie politely.  "That's one way of putting It,"  agreed Mickey. "Me 'n' the boss wasn't  quite sociable at times."  It seemed to him that she took the  news of his altered prospects with  rather   too   much    indifference.  A   NICHT  WI'  BURNS  Most London Scots were a wee bit  under the weather on Friday morn. It  was all owing to the nicht before, -i  cantie nicht it had been of Doric oratory and-satisfying haggis and inspiring  whisky. Not .that they would admit  to having been "fou"; they might havo  had a "diappie in their e'e," but nothing more. Well, who could blame  them? Are they not exiles, and had it  not been the annual nicht wi' Burns?  If a Scot from home may not over-indulge in the barley bree on that nicht  of a' nichts of the, year, no mortal man  has an excuse to drown his sorrows in  the flowing bowl.  Now the nicht wi' Burns is a distinct  event, in the yearly calendar of- social  London. It is the one function where  the'cockney as such is a rank outsider  unless he happen to have lived in Scotland, subscribes to the cult of the Ayrshire bard, has acquired a taste for  haggis and auld kirk, and can reel off  with faultless ' accent* such cryptic  phrases as "It's a braw, brichtf'moon-  licht nicht, th' nicht." The taste for  haggis has always eluded me; that  pudding of sheep's entrails and onion  and oatmeal boiled in a sheep's stomach  may be an excellent antidote to whisky,  but the remedy seems out of all proportion to the disease. . Nor am I singular  in that belief; some American orator,  whose name I have forgotten, once declared,, after sampling haggis, that  Burns.'must-have been a-genius, for  no one save a genius could have written poetry about such a dish.' That  witticism has always been an effectual  excuse for passing the haggis, while foi  the rest residence in Scotland and admiration for'the bard and a fair ability to imitate .the DcJric accent have  given me the passport to many a nicht  wi' Burns. Perhaps, too, my appreciation of "auld kirk,"- alias whisky, may  have .been a point in ray favor.   .  No  perfervid  Scot,  then, - challenged  my presence in; the Holborn Restaurant  on that night of nights.      Not that I  presumed to don the kilts, or decorated  my:manly.bosom''With-"a sastrof tartan  ribbon, or"even.sported a,buttonhole of  heather, it-was safest'to rely upon the  accomplishments above' noted and "join  the throng as a mere Sassenach-who  hacl the  misfortune not-to be-born* a  Scot. .  "Besides, "Wardlaw " Reid  /had  smoothed the path pf an interloper, who,  knew something about America," for his  recent eulogyof the Scot in the United  States hasgivena certificate'of merit  to- all who have lived in the republic  even  though -they may not hail  from  north of the Tweed.   And when once  the auld kirk had begun  to  flow and  diffuse a genial atmosphere around, it  became possible    to hint  "at further  qualifications on the score that not .all  Burnsites   were' letter-perfect "in    the  text of their .bard.     The occasion was  provided by" the announcement on. the  programme that one of the songs was  to be "Of a' the airts."     Both my immediate companions admitted that that  .is  one of the  most' famous  and  best  known   of   the   songs   of   Burns,   and  sorned my  imputation that    notwithstanding   that   fame   and   familiarity  neither of them, Scot's    and devotees  though  they  were,  cSuld  repeat,  cor-  _r___ctly_J._he.__fi r_st=_tw_Q__J i n es O f___co urse_=  I dyed Alt these  ^DIFFERENT KINDS  of Goods  ���������������������������a>}������������������������������������ fhe SAME_Dye,  I used  DYOLA  [ONEDYE���������������������������aUKINDS*<H  CLEAN and SIMPLE to Use.

And he had followed her advice!  "I guess I'll have to go into the fighting game," he said.  "You know I don't want you to," returned Rosie, provokingly unruffled at  this statement.  "Well, I ain't like that monument in  the park," said Mickey, exasperated.  "I've got to have a meal once in a  while.     Honest, Rosie, I'd keep out of  they accepted the challenge with alacrity, for there is nothing a Scot is  prouder of than his knowledge of  Burns, and when one had quoted:  "Of a' the airts the wind can blaw  I dearly lo'ethe west,"  the other agreed to that version as being* the actual words of tho poet.

" The" differ"-"  once may be slight, but it is typical of  the tendency of the Scot for making  Burns more Scottish than hc was.

With all ��������������������������� deductions, however, - and  discounting     the    misguided' .suffra-7  gettes "who  would  not  have  tempted* 7  even so wholesale a lover of the sex  as  Burns,  and  ignoring  the  irony  of-  ministerial   adulation   of  a  man   who.., '���������������������������  reserved   his  keenest  satire   for    thfc   -I  cloth,  and  taking no  account  of  the '  topers who excuse their weakness.for  whisky" by   interested   admiration    of /  poetic genius, the annual.celebration of    -  the birth of Burns is the most unique    ,  literary festival of-Greajt Britain.,   Np  other poet or writer, neither Shakesr   "..,  peare  among  the  bards.'.nor  Dickens,,7.  among the novelists,  is celebrated  sfo '  often and so enthusiastically as -Rob-������������������������������������������������������/���������������������������'.  ert Burns..'

Certainly most of the Burns nicht  celebrations are held in hotels. And  not a few of the orators emulate  the example of the speaker in the Holborn Restaurant, who declared that no  1 Greek or Roman ever wrote anything  the game to please you if I could see,'-���������������������������^ -1 ���������������������������*1U "-- -���������������������������>-���������������������������-���������������������������-���������������������������   a chance in anything else. But what  can a mutt like me do', with no pull,  no money, no nothin'? How can a feller keep going, and maybe get married,  on twelve a week and not, sure of  that?"  She looked up at him shyly. He was  quite serious. Never before had he  spoken so openly of himself to her. She  was glad.  "Listen," she said. "Will you promise  to give up fighting if I give you the  chance of a good place?"  "Want to give me a Job as waiter?"  he asked.  to be compared with tho drinking songs  of the Scottish poet. But there are  exceptions to those suspicious circumstances; a glance over the many columns devoted to the anniversary by  the Glasgow and Edinburgh papers  shows that some of the festivals were  held in tea-rooms, others in public  halls, and at least one in a Y. M. C. A.  building. And It would seem that the  environment conditioned the oratory;  sheer bacchanalianlsm for licensed pre-  ITALIAN   SOLDIERS   UNDER   FIRft  For t sheer unemotional daring, no  person has ever seen anything to equaJ  the behaviour of the Italian soldier under fire, and, mark you, very heavy  fire. They are as a whole a splendid  body of men from thc point of view of  physique and discipline. Much more  than this can be said, however.  The good spirits and earnestness and  other good soldierly qualities of these  men can be spoken of in terms of  highest praise. "Chummy" is the word  co describe thc relationship and feeling between officers and men, and under such conditions where each is so  essential to the other a wiser policy  cannot be adopted.  Comfort for the Dyspeptic.���������������������������There is  no ailment so harassing and exhausting as dyspepsia, which arises frortt  defective action of tho stomach and  liver, and the victim of it is to be  pitied. Yet he can find ready relief In-  Parmelee's Vegetable Pills, n prepara  tion that has established itself hy years  mises, and philosophy and even theo-   of effective use.    There are pills thai  logy for public halls nnd Y. M. C. A.'s.  There was even a suffragists' celebration, whereat a strong-minded female  are widely advertised as the greatest  ever compounded, but not one of them  can rank in value with Parmelee's.
