He was wondering if the last sucker iu  America  J  -\  THE MAJOR   L.ITD HIS HEAD ON THE DESK  AND WHl'T.  was dead when there was a step in the  corridor, and his half open door was  pushed open aud a stranger entered  and queried:  "Is this "Major Crofoot, please?"  ,   "It is."  "The man who always has a good  thing for investorsV"  "Sure."  "My name is Dawson, and I have  come in to talk business to you."  Things changed with the major in an  Instant. Tho usual smile came back  to his face, thc usual blandness to his  voice, and as he bade the stranger welcome he toyed with the six old check  books stacked up on the desk to show  that he was doing business with six  different banks.  "What is the best thing you can offer au investor today?" continued the  caller as he seated himself.  "You mean something extra good?"  "The very best there is in the box.  Don't, talk to me of anything paying  less than 30 per cent dividends."  Would Pay 60 Per Cent.  "Xo? Well, I've got just what you  waut. Yesterday I just finished incorporating the Groat American Novelty  Refrigerator company. It's going to  be the greatest thing ou earth. It's  sure to sweep the laud like a tornado.  I'm the inventor, patentee aud president of the company, capital $5,000,-  000, and I feel sure I can guarantee  you GO per cent dividends. You put  hot water into tiro refrigerator and it  freezes it to ice. Attached to and  working with it are a music box, au  alarm clock, a French dictionary, a  typewriter, a washing machine nnd a  phonograph. Can be worked singly  or altogether. Keeps tabs on the hired  girl. Records tlie exact moment the  husband comes iu at night. Can be  fitted with a torpedo to blow up  tramps calling for something to eat.  Possibilities unlimited, and the demand  will be unprecedented. The czar of  Russia writes"���������  "Never mind the czar of Russia," interrupted Mr. Dawson. "Is that your  very best?"  "But think of it, man, 00 per cent  dividends, and I make you general  manager at a salary of ���������"-.''O.OOO a year."  "Poor, very poor. Not half good  enough. I thought you had something  gilt edged. It wouldn't pay to fool  away my time on that." ****���������  "But, man"���������  "Come in with me and learn how to  promote. You don't know the ABC  of it yet. One of the very poorest companies I have is the Arabian Celery  nnd Horseradish syndicate. We propose to buy 0,000.000 acres of desert  land and supply the world with celery  and horseradish. The dividends nre  positively guaranteed at 75, and yet we  don't think much of IL We shan't try  very hard to push the stock. I could  give you tho vice presidency at a salary  of ,$50,000 a year, but I don't want to  see you starve to death."  Tho major turned pale, opened his  eyes very wide nnd begun to breathe  hard.  "A promoter who can't see an even  100 per cent dividends In an enterprise  should drop It," continued the caller.  "It's one horse. It's wasting his time.  I organized the Universal Gas Saving  company and figured out It would pay  80 per cent dividends. Looked to me  like n big thing In my then callow  days, but I laugh nt It now. It cut gas  Mils down from .ft! a month to 15 cents  and Is still'doing It, but the stockholders nre kicking for greater dividends.  Ninety per cent looks like sklmmllk to  them.

"Great Scott!" whispered tho mnjor  as he leaned forward In his chair.  "After the Gas Saving company was  out 1 saw 1 was wasting my time.

An interesting performance of  "Hamlet" has bsen given in the Malay tongue at Wayang Kassim. In  reporting ..'this production the Singapore Rree Press says: In this instance, as in the case of Malay translations of other plays with which  Europeans are familiar, the Wayang  Kassim people somewhat embellished  and added to the well-known  Shakespearean story. The results aro  somewhat astonishing, but none the  less interesting. The play is made to  begin at a period before the good old  King of Denmark is murdered by his  brother, and both plot and murder  are carried out with careful detail.  The wicked brother's sobs on discovering that the king was dead���������from  the effects of the poison he himself  had administered���������were delightfully  realistic. Then the love affairs of  Hamlet and "his intended"���������as the  program gracefully expressed it-  came under notice.  Ophelia, in what seemed like a bridal costume, sang and wailed and  bemoaned her fate in a way that suggested intentions of suing" the faithless prince for breach of promise. He  on his part preserved a sad ancl  solemn face as if resigned to his fate,  and quite prepared to accept the  jury's verdict. In tho meantime the  queen and her new husband were  chuckling over the success of their  ���������monarch-removing scheme. Several  scenes of this sort of thing occurred  before the real Shakespearean beginning of tho play was reached. This  was where the ghost had his innings.  In this Malay version of "Hamlet"  the ghost scone is worked chiefly on  comedy linos. The ghost himself has  clearly a keen sense of humor.. He  makes a great sport with the watchman on night duty. The latter evokes  roars of laughter by his comic fright  on beholding the apparition. Tho  first thing he does, when ho has recovered his wits, is to run to the  telephone!  Pie succeeds in getting his call  through, and as a result of his  agitated communication his superior  officer appears. After telling all  about the ghost, tho watchman throws  down his gun and cap and says, figuratively. "I'm chucking this job. T  didn't contract to interview ghosts "  The sergeant, noting this, says, "How  dare you throw down your gun? I  shall fine you GO cents for that!" As  the jaga continues to protest he adds  fine on fine. But he takes it all back  when the ghost gives him a turn.  Later he reports the matter to Hamlet  in the good old-fashioned police-constable style: "I was on duty at so  and so, and at three minutes past one  I . . .'! etc. Hamlet next has an  affecting interview with the ghost,  and after learning all about his  father's murder, sings something to  the tune of "O Maritana!" After  this, ,it does not much "matter about  the rest of the play. It is all equallv  good. The more one sees of tho In-  dra-Zanz.bar people the more one  likes them.  A Turtle Feast With  Indians on the  Amazon   Rivar.  "One wf the strangest situations J  was eva  \n," said  a man who has  traveled   much,  "was  down   on   an  island in the Amazon river.    I was  looking   up 'lumber   for  an   English  syndicate.   I had another- white man**-  with me, and we went up tho river  600 miles in a launch.   The ciew of  the launch were hall' Indian and half  negro.     We   had   been   caught   by   a  swarm of lndir.ns who swept us along  with   them   up   tlio   river   until   wo  reached this, island 1 speak of. There  was nothing' to do but go with them,  is they were several hundred to one-  of  us."   They   landed  on  the island,  which  was  quite sizable and  sloped  to the river's edge, tlie shores being  sandy,     There, we   camped   for   tin"  night.   Next morning when we want  ed   to   leave   the   natives   would   not  let us  go.  insisting  on  our  remaining.    I   did  not like  this,  but there  was nothing else to do, so we .stayed.  Well,  that night  we  saw  something  moving   all   nbo".t   the   island,   and  presently  turtles  began to crawl out  of the writer on lo tlio shore.   Thera  were hundreds f.f them.   They came  there to  lay  their eggs.    It was an  Annual  visit,  and  the   Indians knew  and   kept   track   of   it.    They   were  there  to  have  a  feast.    As  soon  as  the   turtles  were  well  on  thc  island  the fun began.    With a big pole we  ���������would  get  after  a   turtle  and   upset,  him on his back, where .te was help-  'pss.   Scores wore caught, in this manner.   For those they did not want to  eat  at  once   the   Indians  scooped   a  hole  in   the  sand   and   dro/ped   the  turtle down  on  his  back,  and  there-  he remained until dragged out fo be  killed.   Tho weird and fantastic performances   we   saw   there   bent  anything T ever saw before or since. The  Indians   would   cat   and   dance   and  dance and eat until they fell c'dwii,  unable to move.   As soon as the*) had  rested they would get up and go at  i.  again.    They  kept  that   up   for  nearly a week.    Then  we got away,  How much   longer  they  remained   I  cannot  say,    hut   suppose   they   remained as long as thero was anything  to eat."

"I took the conductor's hand," says the prima donna, "and. imprinting upon it a devout  kiss, called him my 'dead master.'  He did try my voice, and as- I indulged in the excruciating shrieks  ever heard in 'music,' he told me.  gently but firmly, to go back to any  other occupation in my limited capacity. My husband confirmed this comment, and then 1 threw off my disguise and revealed my useless self.  1 draw the veil over what followed."  But Mme. Moody is not quite so useless "as she would have us believe;  for, in addition to her operatic abilities, she knows not a little about the  culinary art, and her husband has  been hoard to confess that when she  has time to cook a dinner he does  not want to go to the Carlton or thc  Savoy.

Some Mistaken Notions About Drown*  ing Corrected.  An export swimmer says that till the  talk we hear about era tup as the cause  of drowning Is wrong, says the Chicago News. Thero Is only one form of  cramp that Is fatal to a swimmer, and  that Is cramp iu the stomach, which Is  very rare. The popular notion Is that  It Is a cramp In the arms or the legs  that makes people drown. Cramp of  this kind does sometimes attack a  swimmer; but, though It Is painful, it  Is not dangerous. He docs not, if so  attacked, boe-ome paralyzed nnd go to  the bottf-m, but begins to struggle and  to cry for help. If he will stand the  pain for a short time and keep his  head he can by his own efforts work  the cramp off.  Another mistaken notion Is that a.  drowning man throws up bis bands  Just us lie Is sinking. As a matter of  fact, It Is only a good swimmer that  con throw up his hands In the water,  for he has to tread water to do It, and  a man drowning does not tread wa*  t"o������uoiith,  and  yet  when  wol ������.

Rules Governing the Use of Filo Embroidery  Silk.  Embroiderers are often at a loss to  know whether to use a single or double  thread when working in filo silks.  The rules that govern the use of tho  single or double thread aro based upon  the general principle that the finer and  more delicate the work and material  thc finer should be the thread.  Thus on sheer handkerchief linen or  mull or for a very small design on a  heavier fabric use a single thread of  filo throughout; otherwise thc work  will look rough and coarse.  Sometimes indeed the thread is. split  for the shading iu the center to give a  more delicate effect. This, however, is  rarely necessary. It is a fairly safe  rule for large designs or heavy materials to use two threads of filo, at least  for the outer edges. Frequently the  entire flower is done in the double silk,  but quite as often the outer portions  and the foliage are worked with the  two strands, while for the shading toward the center the single thread Is  used. This treatment gives both  greater richness aud depth to the work,  besides filling more rapidly, always a  desideratum in an Intricate piece of  embroidery.  In using two strands of silk It Is  Important to thread the needle properly. Do not fold over a single thread  In the eye, as It will cause the silk to  twist, roughen and cut. Instead, draw  out from the skein two threads of exactly the same length nnd thread tho  needle with hot li, together.  Blenheim.

It takes two saucepans to make the  candy���������ono for three cupfuls of granulated sugar, a cupful of thick sirup  and two-thirds of a cupful.of water,  the other for a cupful of granulated  eugar and half a cupful of water. The  contents of both pans aro allowed to  cook until the sirup In them will spin  a thread when poured from the spoons  or make a soft ball between the fingers when dropped In very cold water.  When both are ready the sirup In the  first pan Is turned slowly over the  stiffly beaten whites of throe eggs, a  continual boating going ou during tho  process. Then the second, sirup, with  tho addlllonof a cupful of nut meats,  Is turned over, and the frothy mass is  turned Into a buttered tin and when  cool enough Is mnrked Into small  blocks.

"It was Ilko a real bottle, thirty feet  high, covered with the bark of a box  tree' and with a gum tree growing out,  where the'eork ought lo bo."  Such was (he way In which an Englishman described the first bottle tree  which came under his notice, and truly  one who does nut know the tro' Its  sudden appearance In his pathway,  often In the midst of dense scrub, must  make a vivid impression.  The lower part of.(ho trunk Is thick  aiid cylindrical, -decreasing ,in size toward the top. Its shape being that of a  gigantic living bottle, from the neck of  which spring the only branches and  leaves that tho tree possesses. In this  respect ft carries to an excess the peculiarity of most Australian trees���������  namely, their lack of branches for a*  considerable distance up the stem.  The bark is of grayish color and is  very hard, says the Philadelphia Inquirer, but the wood inside is soft and  moist. The latter can be chewed in  the same way as sugar cane, but as it  lacks its sweet, pleasant taste It is  rarely used In this way. This peculiar  characteristic of the tree, however,  makes it a valuable food for cattle.  Indeed, during the long droughts  which occasionally visit Australia hundreds of settlers have to thank the  bottle tree for saving them from ruin.  Sometimes for more than a year and  In the inland districts for still longer  periods scarcely a drop of rain falls.  Every blade of grass is dried, tanks  become empty, creeks no longer run  and la many cases' dry up altogether,  as do nearly all water holes and lagoons; cultivation Is impossible, and  fodder for cattle and horses is extremely difficult to procure. Then the bottle  tree comes to the rescue. Every scrub  is searched for these living bottles,  and everywhere is heard the ringing of  axes as .the .strange, attractive trees  are laid low.  As soon as the trunk has been stripped of its bark the .cattle are brought  to it if within easy distance, and there  thoy remain till neither leaves nor  wood is left. In places where the  settlers have no scrubs of their own  they will drive many miles in order to  obtain a wagon load of, this great treasure.  Sometimes Instead of allowing the  animals free access to the tree the settlers cut the trunk into strips, put the  strips through the cutter arid thus  make a substitute for proper chaff.  In many instances during a drought,  except for prickly pears and tlie foliage of trees, cattle are fed ou these  living bottles alone, nnd they have  been tbe means of saving large quantities of stock.  It seems strange that In the absence  of rain these trees should retain their  mol3t interior, as the majority of others look dry and drought stricken.  But throughout all the bottle tree  flourishes, lifting Its dark green leaves  toward the sky, whither the farmers  and squatters turn longing eyes in  hopes of the wished for rain.  When the dry season ends nnd the  land In a very few weeks is covered  with fresh green grass, the work of  the bottle tree Is done. But, mindful  of Its past usefulness, no farmer unless under absolute necessity fells this  tree, and It may often be seen (Standing in solitary grandeur,, its strange  shape outlined against the blue sky.  while the land nt Its base has been  put under cultivation or has been converted Into grazing grounds for the  cattle.

"Boys and girls under eighteen  should be strictly forbidden to read  in bed," says the Lancet, on authority of Dr. Feilchenfcld, of Berlin, who  declares that in the case of young persons whose eyes are not fully developed tho practice is likely to induce  myopia. While young people run the  greatest risk, the Lancet thinks that  rending in bed is undesirable for persons of any age, and states that "in  the case of aged, anxious, worried,  and bedridden people, to whom it  would seem cruelty to deny what may  bo almost their only luxury, for fear  of inducing some slight terror of refraction, care should be taken that  the light is sufficiently brilliant, the  "c-yes being shaded from it and that  the patient lies on his back with head  ancl shoulders raised."

Business women should enjoy life���������  every bit of it. To do this they must  keep alive and not forget they are living.  Many business women have lost and  are losing a third of their lives. The  instant they leave their homes in the  morning they become entirely different  beings, forgetting entirely that they  are alive. They become mechanical  .beings for their employers. They never smile, never tell or think of humorous Incidents apropos of the dark happenings of the day. These would flavor their existence.  This is not the view of an Idealist or  dreamer who spends all of life in trying to  find' arnusemeut  to  pass  the  hours away and who only pictures the  business woman's.life, but is the view  : of one hard in the harness of the: business world and one who strongly advocates working as hard as strength  will permit, always busy as a bee and  working earnestly and  faithfully for  the employer's interests.

The Troubfr-TYields to thc Rich,  RecLBIcod Dr.  Williams' Pink  Pills Actually Make.  Ask  any doctor  and  he ' will * tell  you that rheumatism is    rooted   in  the blood;'that, nothing can cure   it  that does   not 'reach the blood.    It  is sheer waste of money and time to  try to cure rheumatism    with    liniments    and    lotions    that   only   go  skin deep.    You  can speedily} cure  rheumatism with Dr*. Williams'  Pink  Pills,   which   enrich the blood, drive  out     the      poisonous     acid      and  loosen the stiffened, -aching   joints.  Among  the  thousands  of  rheumatic  sufferers cured by Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills is Mr. W.-A. Taylor/Newcastle,  'N.

I tried  liniments and blistering,' but witli no  "effect.    In fact the trouble was getting worse, and my knee joints grew  so (Stiff that they would   snap   if   I  stooped,     and,    I     could   .scarcely  straighten, up.    Altogether I was    a  terrible   sufferer, and nothing   J did  or took gave me any relief until    I  began the use of Dr. Williams'  Pink  Pills.     I took the Pills steadily for  a  couple  of "months  and  every  vestige of the' trouble disappeared. That  was two years ago, and as I    have  had no return of the trouble  [   fool  safe  in  assuming  that  the  cure    is  permanent."  "(Vino-tenths,   of    the  common    ailments  that afllict humanity nro due [  to  bad   blood,  and  as   Dr.  Williams''  Pink Pills actually make new blood,  that is the reason they cure so many  different   troubles, such as   anaemia,  indigestion,     rheumatism,      eczema*,  neuralgia,  St. Vitus dance, paralysis  and the ailments of girlhood ancl womanhood    with   all  their  distressing  headaches,   backaches and   irregularities.

Howard' Cliandl*?r;.Christy Is said to  have "cleaned up" $80,000 in one year,  Which sura Is something more than tbe  combined salaries of all the members  of President Roosevelt's cabinet.  This  may be an.exaggeration.   It probably  Is, and it should be.  Yet that It is possible for Christy to maUe such a sum  and that it Is probable his income for  a  twelvemorith   has  climbed   well   up  toward that figure are proved by thc  fact that bis royalties on an edition of  one portfolio of drawings, the execution of which probably occupied less  than  a   month,   was $13,000 the  first  year it was out.   The advertising value  of  Christy's  name   is   so  great   that  he has been offered handsome studio  apartments rent.free If he  will only  move Into them nnd establish the reputation   of   the   bnilding.     Harrison  Fisher Is another popular artist who  has found the public very practically  appreciative.   [lis career in many respects   has   boon   similar  to  that of  Christy, also Ills Income, though it Is  doubtful jf tho hitter has ever reached  the high water mark set by Christy's  star year.   Record has It that Fisher's  brush  brought him  $20,000 In  seven  months at onetime.  Henry Hutt Is also a member of this  class.   In ten years bo sprinted from a  four dollar a week artist's "devil" in a  Chicago engraving house all the way to  a seat of honor in the real artists' club.  While  the  first years  of  .Mr.'  Hutl's  "career"   were some what   stormy,   at  least thoy wore proportionately short  He early  found   himself nnd  flxcrl  a  rising scale of prices on his work. This  proved   an   excellent   plan,   the   only  change necessary in tire programme being a readjustment of the scale In order to frighten off the buyer with a  limited purse.   The real-financial success of. these throe men���������Christy, Fisher and Hutt���������lies  in their ability to  produce.   Except when selling stuff on  a royalty basis, the prices paid them,  while seemingly enormous, are actually not record breaking.���������Bookman.  We live fry our blood, and on  it.

Put the whole in  a long, slender bottle closed at tho top  with a piece of bladder containing a  pinhole to admit the air.

Admiral Evans laughed aud replied:  "I will tell you what I really said and  what  the  incident   really   was.    One  drizzly  day  during  the  blockade   we  stood in toward the harbor,and shelled  the. shore batteries.

New Ways to Pay Old Debts In Far  Japan.  A Japanese doctor, it seems, never  even dreams of asking any patient, but  a poor one especially, for a fee, how  ever legitimately the money may have  been deserved, for this proverb is the  motto of all Japanese physicians:  "When   tho   twin   enemies,   poverty  and disease, invade a home, then ho  who takes aught from that home, even  though it be given him, is a robber."  "Often," says Dr. Matsumoto, "a doctor will not only give his time and his  medicine freely to the sufferer, but he  will also give him money to tide him  over bis dire:necessity.    Every physician has his own dispensary, and there  are very few chemists' shops In the empire.   When a rich man calls in a physician he does uot expect to he presented with a bill for medical services.  In  fact, no such thing as a doctor's bill  is.known in Japan, although nearly all  the other  modern' appliances are  In  vogue there.    The doctor never asks  for bis fee.   The strict honesty of the  people makes this unnecessary.   When  ho has finished with a patient a present is made to him of whatever sum  the patient or his friends may deem  to be just compensation.   The doctor  ls supposed to smile, take bis fee, bow  ���������rind thank bis patron."  .  Wolseley Is Hard Up.  Lord .

It is quite evident that Mr. Stead has caught the  inspiration from a source which could  be only gained from personal knowledge,   and  has   set  his   thoughts   to  metre in a clear-cut and pleasing manner.    Two short poems, "The Homesteader" ancl  "The Prairie"  are excellent examples of Mr. Stead's descriptive powers, and also give expression to the dominant idea and motive that permeates  every page,  the  cultivation of a proper realization of  the   possibilities   and   worth   of    our  Western  Heritage.   .To    quote    from  "The Homesteader" :���������  For here on the edge of.creation.  Lies, far as s,sie vision can fling,  A kingdom that's fit for a nation���������  A kingdom���������and I am the King!  A  stanza  in   "The  Prairie"   treats  in a similar way:  Where wide as the plan of creation  The Prairies stretch ever away,  And beckon a broad invitation  To fly to their bosom and stay;  The prairie-fire smell in'the gloaming,  The water-wet wind in the spring���������  An empire untrod for the roaming���������  Ah, this is a life for a King!  And while oirr  favored  country is  thus   delightfully   portrayed,   we   are  reminded that we  are but a unit of  the Empire, and of the position we occupy in relation to the Mother Country.  In  the  initial  poem,   "The  Empire-Builders." as  well  as.in  "Manhood's Estate,"    "Mother and Son,"  ancl  "The  Charity  Ward,"  a strong  imperialistic note is sounded, and a  plea made for the furtherance of the  unification of Greater Britain   Of our  own   responsibilities   in  this   connection what might almost be considered  as'a caustic reminder, is set forth in  "The  Charity  Ward" :���������  Is't well to boast of Empire and brag  of Britain's might,  Is't  well to sing  of her. soldiers  or  hurry  them into the  fight,  Is't well to raise your anthem for the  King upon his throne,  While ye leave the Mother Country  to bear the load alone ?
