Tries to Convert Wife to Beliel  In Transmigration of Souls.  SEES PLAYMATE IN A TRAMP.  Experiment Ends In a Personal Encounter In Which the Hobo Docs Not  Come Out the Worst���������l.lrs. E}; Con-  solos Hubby  a  [Copyright, 1307, by E. C. Parcells.]  Mr. Bowser had seemed absentmind-  ed at'dinner, and for half an hour'aft-  erward he. smoked Ms cigar tn silence  nnd had no Interest iu . his evening  newspaper. Finally ho aroused himself, with a start, and said:  "Mrs. Bowser, I want to talk with  you for a few' minutes on is very serious matter, aud I trust I may; have  your undivided and respectful attention. If you can restrain your fondness for sarcastic remarks I hope you  will do so for this once."  "I hope you are not going to tell me  that you have discovered a new planet  in the heavens,'.' she answered.  "I am not looking for new planets  just now, though I may begin later on.  This afternoon .a man from Troy came  A TRAMP AT THE BASEMENT DOOB.  into the office on business. lie had a  , dog with him, and do you know that I  seemed to recognize iu that dog au old  and dear friend of mine who died aU  least ten years ago? Same eyes, same  mouth, same hopeless expression of  face. Why, I rose out of my chair at  ' first sight of him."  "And then you sat down again," she  replied. "I expected you'd get back to  that nonsense again. It's only a, few  months, ago that you scared the cook  away by your talk about transmigration, telling her that she'd probably  turn into a cat when she died, aud if I  ' were yb i I'd let'it rflone. I tell you it's  all bosh." *  "So you call the theory of transmigration all bosh, do you?" he sharply/  asked as he turned on her.  Ridicules the Theory.  "Of course I do. At least it is a theory so far fetched that no sensible person will' waste auy time over it Let  us talk about something else. I -was  reading today that big money could  be made by starting huckleberry  ewamps."  "Never- you miud about that, Mrs..  Bowser. Let the huckleberry business-  take, care of Itself. The question before, us is, What becomes of our souls  ���������vyhen, the breath leaves the body? Do  ypu.-care whether your soul passes into  ���������$1$ body of a dog or a dove? If you  don't, it is something to me what becomes of mine. I don't hanker to come  back to earth as a hippopotamus or an  alligator. You call the theory of transmigration all bosh, and yet it is gain1-  ing ground every day, aud millions of  neople believe in it."  "Well, if they want to- believe in  Such rubbish let them go ahead."  "There you go again! Rubbish? Bobbish? By what right do you call the  belief of at least a billion people rubbish? There is eitiier good foundation  lor this belief or else all these people  are fools. How can you say what becomes of your soul after death ?"  "And how can you?" she queried. .  "I can't exactly, and yet when I look  into the face of a dog from Troy and  recognize the features of a dear old!  playmate who died In Kalamazoo,  many years ago it goes to convince me  that there is more in the theory than I  ever accepted."  "1 trust your dear old playmate -was  well and that you enjoyed his.call.  Did you mention that you used to play  ball and hopscotch with him? Did  you ask how he liked being a Troy dog  for a change? Did he-seem to also recognize you?"  "Sneering already. That's you all  over. I never set out to talk with you  on any matter of deep Interest unless  you try to belittle it. Woman, right  here and now I boldly announce myself as a, transmigrationlst of the deepest dye,, and If you have got any sense-  in your head I can prove the theory  In ten, minutes. Yes, I can do it ihr  one.   Look, at that cat, will you?"  The family feline had been out on  the fence walloping other felines and!  showing who was boss, but had come*  rp with a look of innocence and modesty on her face" and was sitting up ori  the hearth rug. Mrs. Bowser regarded  her for a moment and then observed: ���������  "It's our old cat, right enough."  "���������Yes, it's our old cat, and who- does  Khe remind you of? By thunder, bus  It's strange that I never remarked the  likeness before! Mrs. Bowser, as true  ns you live, the soul of your Bister  Hannah, who died three years ago,  bus Dassed Into that cat!   Look at net,  sayl   If that- isn't Hannah's expression, to Bidpt, then I'll eat my bat!"  Saw Relative In Cat  "Nonsense! You must be crazy, Sho  look" like any other cat, and that's all  there 1������ to It. You can see what silly  things' your theory leads to. It's a  utruuie to compare her to Hannah."  "And you see no resemblance?" be  usked. "You can't bob that she sits  there with her chin cocked up Just an  Hunnah used to after I had told her'  that one shouldn't climb fences and  roll over on the grass7"  "No, sir, I can't, and I' want yon, to  cjiyt mukl>itr.su.cij couyi^rlsonc-"  -.  Tireh lt's-Deeause your 'well known  obstinacy won't permit you to. Hannah's <soul went into that cat as sure  as you're, born; and that's .why she's  hung around as she has. That's only  one case, however. All human souls  do not pass'into the bodies of animals.  Some of them pass into other people.  When 1 die my soul may pass Into the  body of some dear little babe who will  grow up to be a celebrated statesman,  poet or philosopher."  "Or a junk dealer or knife grinder,"  suggested Mrs. Bowser.  Mr. Bowser had just got red in-the  face and was about to resent the sneer  when the cook came up and said there  was a tramp at the basement door who  wanted money for a night's lodging  and demanded to see the master of the  house. ,  "Perhaps ifs some, one into whose  body the soul of one of your old  friends has passed," said Mrs. Bowser  as Mr, Bowser rose up. "You may even  find the man to have the eyes and  nose and chin of your brother Joe, who1  was drowned in tho Ohio river ten  years ago. If it proves' to he so. you  will of course use him very tenderly."  The trausmigratiouist turned and  glared at her and nodded bis head in  an ominous way, but she had given  him an idea, and he meant to work it  out. At the basement door he found a  burly big tramp who was a believer In  the rights of man and who lost no  time in saying:  "Why should I be compelled to sleep  on the ground beneath a tree while  you occupy a hair mattress in a luxurious bedroom? I'm wanting a dime  to nut me up somewhere."  "And you shall have it," rep-lied Mr.  Bowser.as he walked the man down  to the gate to be out of earshot-of Mrs.  Bowser. "You have arrived at an opportune moment. You know "wiiat 'opportune' is, don't you?"  "If it's turning me over to  a cop,  don't you try it on!" replied the man.  "Oh, you need have no fear.   Have  you ever heard of the theory of transmigration?"  "Never."  "Well, it's the theory that when ii  person dies, his soul passes into the  body of some one else. For instance,  you strongly remind -me of a boy  named John Davis, "whom I knew  years ago. He died when I was fifteen.  He was a good boy and a liberal  hearted boy."  "And you are -wondering if Ms-- soul  passed into my body? Wonder no  longer. It did. You have hit the nail  on the head. I fcuowed you the minute you opened the door. How are  you, governor?  Shake!"  .  He Agreed'With Bowser.  "This���������this fi? almost incomprehensible," said Mr. Bowser as he extended  his hand.  "Not at alL governor. I'm Joe Davis, your old playmate, and I've called  for that dollar you was owing me when  I died.   Fork over."  "But I never owed you a dollar.  Now that 1 come to look at you more  closely I see"���������  "You -see your old playmate, and he  ,-wants his dollar."  "He can't get it. and you take yourself oft"  Mr. Bowser turned away, but he  hadn't taken two steps before there  was a mixup, and he was one of the  mixers. "When the conflict had lasted  three minutes the tramp jumped the  fence; and Mr. Bowser sat up and sa'w  Mrs. Bowser beside him and asked  what had happened.  "Oh, nothing much!" she replied.  "You just met the soul of a dear old  playmate' that had passed into the  body of a tramp, and you were thrown  down and rolled' on the grass until  you will small of new mown lKty for  a month ft) come. Lefs get into the'  house before the soul of. some other  dear old frrend Unit has entered the  body of a policeman comes along and  uses his club." M.

I was in a Georglu postofflce when a  young colored mau who was banging  about the corridor approached and asked for 10 cents, to buy himself something to eat. This gave me an'opportunity to ask him if he thought hla  race was improving any, and , he  promptly replied:  :'Yes, suh, de cull'd man am im-  provin' right along."  "You notice that, do you?"  "I does, suh."  "Take your own case. Do you believe that you are better posted than  your father was?"  "Humph! De ole man couldn't hold  a candle to me.

Ways  of  the  Telephone    Trust,    or
Many Problems  Involved
Govoimnent ownership and operation of telephones involves manv
pioblems ol impoitance. The Bell
Telephone Company, both of the
United States and Canada,. enjoyed
a monopoly of the business during
th'e life of tho Bell' patents. The
management of the monopoly grew
rich and arrogant, conducted the
business ,m an obnoxious and inconsiderate manner and, jn general; m-
cuned the dislike of'the people. ���
s As a result, thousands i of independent telephone companies spiang into existence in the United States and
it is said that their combined service
exceeds,-that of 'the .Bell Telephone
Company. / <.r
' In Canada'the Independent movement has been much,, slower, _ but* it
has at last- bioke forth' and many 'Independent opeiating companies are
being bigarli/ed. in the t Western
Province!!, where 'whole municipalities aie being peopled in a year,-the
slow-going; "airogant" methods ,of the
'Bell Company and its refusal to give
telephone seivice to- rural communities has led to the building of Government telephone 'systems.
Even for a time after the patents
of the Bell Company    had expired,
both m Canada and the ,States,   the
Bell Company refused to sell    telephones to the Independent Companies. 'As a lesult ,of this attitude of
the Bell Company and the great Independent     or     opposition    growth,
many telephone. manufacturing companies have pi own up and prospeied
in the United States and the    Bell
Company lias been torced to change
its policy, both in the operating and
manufacturing   field.    For- years the
-Bell  Company lefused  to   give   any
fanner line or aural telephone seivice
unless tlie entile cost of construction
and installation'was advanced by the
subscnbers and a heavy yearly rental
guarantee.    Now,   wherever  competition exists, the one-time arrogant and
unmanageable Bell Company is either
installing-rural lines or offering connections for rural lines at low cost
to the faimeis and municipalities who
will install their own local lines.   '
In the manufacturing field the policy is also changed.' Not'only,is the
Bell Telephone Company'willing and
anxious, to sell ; telephones and telephone supplies to farmers and others,
but  even  goes  to* the  extreme  and
manufactures under  different  names
and denies   its  identity in order to
tool the Independents and thus get
their money   and  gain possession of
their   plans    of   development.    The
Kellogg Switchboard   &��� Supply Co.,
of Chicago, Illinois, -is a -notable illustration of this policy in the States.
Even in Canada   a   notable   change
has    most    suddenly come over Lie
once arrogant  and   stiff-necked   Bell
management,'and the Northern Electric Company of Montreal, has opened an office in Winnipeg and has an
agent hustling for Western business'.
Botli the Kellogg Company and the
Northern Electric Company   are   out
and out Bell Companies, owned and
controlled by the Bell Company, but
working/-under  separate  names   and
sepaiate management in outer to fool
tlie public. ,
Any Independent . telephone company, or Province, or Municipality,
who deals with either of the above
named Bell Companies not only encourages and aids the Bell Telephone
monopoly financially, but furnishes
to, their���.enemy and .competitor, ��� the
Bell Telephone Company,- advance
knowledge of the amount of business
that said Company or Government
intends to do. '

range Is from the close of the eocene
to the latter pa'rt of the pleistocene.

'Is-the extraordinary elongated canine

and the legs'are short.' Thes,animal
measures about seven feet in "length
aside from tlie tail. The lower jaws
have'a downward projection-^ front!
due to a flangelike widening of the
jawbones, which doubtless served as a
protection to the teeth, preventing their
injury or loss. In some of the larger

was /not present, while the caulne
teeth wore even more elongated than

Past Salaries of Actors.
A. number of autograph letters of

Information about the salaries of actors'
early In the nineteenth century. One
relates to an offer by Mr. Ellison offering Kean ��3 a week as acting manager; of "the new theater In Wych
street" Later this rose to ��25 a month.
In 1826 Kean was offered $12,000 a
year to go to America. In the prime
of his popularity he received ��200 for
n week In Edinburgh and apparently
reached the highest point when Mr.
Bunn wrote from the Theater Royal,
Dublin, on Feb. 8, 1S20, and offered
