He is largely interested  in mining in the district, especially in the high grade properties  near Greenwood.   He has proven  his faith in the high-grade belt by  putting his money into it.   Many  friends in the district will be sorry  at the departure of Dr. and Mrs.  Spankie and will wish them increased prosperity.  W.

Pretty Stenographer Realizes the Influence of Si.-nmis and Makes Love  to. Him, but Starts In the Wrong  Way.  [Copyright, 1909, by tho McClure Newspaper Syndicate.]  fT is nil very well for the would br  tenant-of a skyscraper to rnnki  full inquiries about tbe agent  the janitor and the engineer be  fore renting quarters, but lie shou'  not stop there; Indeed, bo should bo'  pin at llio head, and the head is tin  elevator boy. He doesn't, make ou  the monthly bills for ollice rent not  furnish the heat or light, but it de  pends upon him to make tlio skyscraper a paradise on earth or n hotbed of misery. Only about half the  tenants understand tills, and hence the  troubles that arise. If 1 were the  president of a $5,000,000 trust nnd I  went to a skyscraper to see about renting a whole door I should say to tin.  agent:  "Oh, I don't care anything nbout  your credentials. Vour engineer may  be a murderer and your janitor a pirate, but what 1 want to know is what  sort of an elevator boy you have got.  Can he be fixed? ' If not, 'ho would  drive us out of here in six weeks."  Aud as president of that trust I  should interview the elevator boy beforo a stick of furniture was moved  in. 1 shouldn't try to bulldoze him,  and I shouldn't try to buy him. I  should softly and gently say to him:  "My sou, I have met over a million  elevator boys to date, and each and  every one of them has been llio son  of a widow. Each and every widow  lias had a-gigantic mortgage on her  home, and each and every son has  been breaking his youthful back to  pay It off. I see that you are no exception.- Come up to me every Saturday night aud get $5. It's for the interest on the mortgage. ��������� It's to prove  to you that a trust is a blessing instead of an oppression."  That would settle things right off  the reel. That trust would prosper like  a green bay tree, and I shouldn't have  "WITH  A  EAZOI5   IN'   MI  HAND AND KILL  US IOTU." "     -  to borrow the ready at 50 per cent in-  /-      terest to buy my cigarettes and make  an occasional bet on the horses.  If-1 were a young woman stenographer, thirty-Ove years old and not  too good looking, and I didn't know  exactly.when or how or where some  one was going to come' along and ask  for my lily white hand I'd be even  sharper than tho trust president. I  wouldn't try to work' the googoo  racket on that innocent youth and set  his heart aflame, knowing that in the  ?nd I must throw him over and darken  his whole life, but I'd appeal to his  honor a.nd chivalry to aid a poor girl  In making a living. I'd ask his advice  un all things aud seek-to gain bis powerful influence. I'd call him Brother  Sammis and encourage him to call me  Sister Jane. What would be the result? Why, that stenographer would  go about walking on air, and you'd  "" hear of .her investing in real estate  every week or two. ....'.  Smiles at Sammis. ,  When Miss Jane Skeldon came to  our skyscraper to do stenography sho  ' realized my influence all right, but she  started In the wrong way. She smiled  nt me.

Inside of a week  ��������� my young heart was a seething caldron of lore. Mother could cook noth-  t.ig at home, to tempt my appetite.

It was  the telegraph boy who told me of tho  -..:' family in a- flat un town, nnd It was  for aie to corroborate thlnira.   I found  the trustful wife and live children,  Jane continued to smile at me, and I  continued to return them, but within  my being a voice was crying out for  rcngv'iinco.  I went home one night and read "Tlie  Murder of the Hue Morgue" and "The  Memoir of Sherlock Holmes," nnd-next  morning I was ready for the'last act of  tlie drama. Was tliere any mercy In  my heart? Not sufficient for a mosquito to bite at. Had any capitalist offered to raise a dozen gigantic mortgages like tlie one ou .my mother's  home 1 would not hnvs foregone my  vengeance. My ��������� heart had been toyed  with, and I was implacable. No matter how 1 found out that the Scotch  Granite man and Jane were to take the  Coney Island boat that afternoon; no  matter how tlio trustful wife and innocent children got word to be at tho  dock and take thc trip with the husband and father. When you have read  I'oo anil Holmes all things become possible. I went to Mr. Hasher, the  agent, and told him that 1 had been  working my heart over time and must  give it a rest, and he gave mo half a  day off. <  I was at tho dock when tho false  hearted Jane and tlio stony hearted  Granite man went aboard. Thoy were  smiling as the people on thc slopes ot  Vesuvius smile when anybody predicts an" earthquake. Hist! Thoy  come! They are mine! Fifteen minutes later the family arrived. Notwithstanding tlie gigantic mortgage  weighing me down 1 had the tickets  for them, and 1 directed them aboard  ���������innocence and vengeance walking  hand in hand! I followed on. The  woman who is scorned always follows  on. So does the elevator boy. He isn't  the guy to go out before the last act  is played.  Granite and false heart had chairs in  the center of a large and growing audience. They smiled and cooed. Not  tho slightest warning of what was  about to break loose came to them.  The sun -shoue, the Hudson river rippled, and it seemed to them as if  things would roil on forever without a  jar. Did any feeling of pity come to  mo at the last moment? Did I say to  myself that such revenge was unworthy of an elevator boy working for  ?S per?   Never!   Never!  I did not point out the truants to the  wife and children. I simply left them  to do their own pointing. It wasn't  threo minutes before they were next.  Then thero was a rush forward, with  cries of "Oh. husband���������oh, papa, how  good of you!"  An Av.ful Silence Fell.  Then an awful silence fell upon that  boat���������a silence' lasting about thirty  seconds. It was as if she had been in  midstream and waitiug to collide with  a ferryboat. It was broken by female  scrcau:s aud a masculine voice attempting explanations, and then the  air was full of hats and ribbons and  other adornments. 1 turned and left  the boat. I was on tho dock when the  others came ashore. 1 was watching  when the false hearted Jane made for  a cab and the others for a street car.  I even gathered up some pieces of her  hat for souvenirs. 1 even kicked  Scotch Granite's panama iuto the river  as 1 made my way ashore. The false  Jane never returned to our skyscraper,  but Scotch Granite slipped in after  office hours to pack and remove his  belongings. He bangs out in some  other office now, and his wife and dear  ones come down to see him (.very day,  and Jane wanders here and there with  drawn, pinched face aud tears in her  eyes nnd would meet me if she could  and ask mo to forgive, but the gulf can  never bo bridged.

Once,  and only once, he passed in procession through our streets. That was  forty years ago, however, so it is  doubtful whether any mere..mini in  the stree,!: can recall the event. His  late Majesty was then a young man  in the train of his uncle, the Sultan  Abdul Aziz.: He rode in the Sultan's  procession from Charing Cross station to Buckingham Palace, visited  Queen Victoria at Windsor Castle,  and attended the opera at Covent Garden, a review at Spithead, a Guildhall reception, a ball at the India  Office, and a festival performance at  the Crystal Palace.  Ten years after this visit Abdul Aziz  was deposed, and within a few days  of his successor's appointment he  committed suicide. Abdul Aziz's stay  in London aroused unusual enthusiasm, the public receiving him splendidly -wherever he went. At that time  the ex-Sultan, Abdul Hamid, was n  pleasant-looking young fellow "of  medium height, with clear olive complexion, dark hair, high forehead, unJ  large dark brown eyes, the habitual  expression of his face being one of  extreme sadness." To observers at  the Guildhall banquet the young  Turk appeared "shy and retiring." It  is also recorded of him that in the  gardens of Buckingham Palace he  "would shrink behind the bushes and  conceal himself if he saw anyone  approaching."

A topic of the week has been the  victory of the King's colt Minoru in  the race for the Two Thousand Gui  nous. His Majesty's successes are  quite the feature of the present racing  season. Last season the King won  only $27,000;' this season, which is  barely a month oW, he has already  won $45,000 in stakes. At this rate  the King's winnings in 1909 may exceed his record gains in stakes of  $1-45,000 in 1900, $75,000 in 1897. and  $130,000 in 1898. The royal year started auspiciously at Newbury when for  the first time since His Majesty came  to the throne his horses won two  races in one day. Out of six races the  King's horses have won four and been  second twice. ,  The royal victories are always exceedingly popular, and the only regret is that His Majesty has not been  able to give the crowds at Newbury  and Newmarket the opportunity of  not only cheering the royal colors but  of shouting the owner.

Great Yarmouth, can justly claim to be the narrowest street in the- world, the entrance at one end being only twenty-  nine Inches and at tbe othpr fifty-six  inches. It gives some Idea of the  width when one mentions that neighbors can shake hands and put out each  other's eand.es-across the street! Why  these rows have been so constructed  has given rise to a good deal of discussion. Some writers give the rpason  that when there was a very high tide  the water might flow through them;  others. In. the event of an Invasion  they would prove an excellent means  of defense or that tbe ground plans of  thp rows were suggested by the fishermen's nets, which, spread on the dunes-  to dry. had a narrow'pathway left between them, which represented the  rows.

Flow slip could ride��������� eveu better than  the daring voting wife of oue of the  ihow's owners who rode with him uow  Hid then for" the benefit of the public.  Robert Forsyt he,' the most daring  rider of ,tlie cowboys, the pride of the  troop, always had hated to see the  ��������� Blossom riding. When he glanced over  the ropes and saw some woman spectator looking on calm and dignified  and then glanced toward Annette  astride Western Wind..the bay pony  wilh the black'spot on his left shoul-  fler, her cheeks brilliant, crying In  ' mad merriment with the".other girl  riders, his,,heart boiled within him.  Forsythe, of a fine bid South Carolina family, had become known for his  horsemanship on every western ranch.  Reckless-of nulure and ready for a  frolic, he had not said "Xo"-when be-  - BOURht by the malingers of the new  Wild West show to join It.  On the day that he joined the troupe  ���������a spring day In Oklahoma���������he first  saw Annette disentangling her skirt  from -a Cherokee rosebush. With tho  courtesy to a'woman that ls the southerner's birthright Forsythe offered to  assist her.  - When the thorns were conquered  Annette was no longer heart free, and  Forsythe wenf back to his quarters  . feeling like one wbb has looked into  paradise and received a blow in the  face.   . ^ '  That'life might be all right for a  man,,but at his,home It was like a  crime for a girl of his station to ride  thus for.exhibition. \  Was this girl with the glorious bcan-  ty, with the eyes of heaven, as public  n thing as the armless woman iu the  sideshow?  Forsythe clinched his hands. In after weeks he clluc-hed bis hands many  times. He scorned himself for the  flame of admiration that the guileless  young girl had kindMed in his heart  nnd for the fact thatfhe could uot hold  aloof from her. ,  'It was iu Winnipeg, when midsummer and the show entered Canada together, that he threw aside pride and  tradition arid told Annette that he  loved her. Then for the girl, for whom  Blnce the April day In Oklahoma all  commonplace things bad been bathed  In glory, beguu-a life of torment.  Forsythe begun the moment his ring  shone" on her finger to beseech her to  leave'the show, us no fit" place for a  refined woman.  Her kinsmen, the '- show's owners,  would have released her. but the spell  of the circus held her. and. secure, as  she thought, In Foisythe's love, she  laughed at his entreaties.  Forsythe grew sick with loathing of  the tent life.   Every part of the performance disgusted him.  Forsythe overtook her just outside  the dressing tent wild with humiliation  and besought her to marry, him that  "veiling and let hliu mke' her home to  South Carolina.  She refused laughingly, but when bo  Demanded that she stop riding immediately, even though she did uot merry  him, his arbitrary tones angered her,  grid it ended In a broken engagement  For two months Forsrtho guve uo  sign of wishing to renew his friendship witlfAiini'tti', 'biit_treated her with  ������ formal politeness that rendered'her  miserable.'

Hubert ForsyUio rode most recklessly of all-vaulting over;his 'galloping  horse,;supporting his weight Holely by  nue hand eluteliliig the pommcl-arouud  the arena.  The Cossacks, most daring riders of  the" world, hated him for his skill, and  Forsythe ia the latter weeks 'of his  misery had become more reckless In  riding than even^a Cossack.  "Somebody's going to be hurt today," remarked one of the spectators  "Look at that fellow riding the game  little sorrel with the white feet, won't  you?"  "Somebody's going to see his finish,"  remarked the performers behind the  weather beaten retiriug curtain. Annette" shivered and whitened as she  listened.  "The sorrel's down!" rang a cry.,  The spectators leaped , from their  scats by hundreds. The horse struggled up and shook himself���������unhurt.  The man lay still. Then 'came a woman's scream from behind, the curtain,  "Oh, Bobby. Bobby Bobby!"  The young man was raised and hastily carried out. The" program continued as if nothing had happened,' and  the show, moved on that night-toward.  Mexico.  When Robert Forsythe," bruised and  with a broken leg, opened his eyes In  the City hospital late that evening the  tear stained face of the best cowgirl  rider of the new Wild West show bent  over him.  lie stared nt her a moment wonder-  Ingly.  "Oh, Bobby," she whispered humbly  and'uncertainly, "If you still want me  1*11 leave It-I will���������I will!"  A transfiguring light came In Forsyte's eyes. "When?" he asked eagerly.  "Now," she answered, "this minute,  Bobby!"      .        '  Robert fumbled weakly In the purse  which the nurse handed him.   ,-.  Presently the ring that had been  taken off In Kentucky was "put on In  Texas, and the electric lights- that  twinkled, within the hospital walls  were as the lights of heaven.  Presently Robert.Forsythe broke the  silence.  "Annette." said he, "will you mind  very much���������If���������if"���������  "If what, dear?" said Annette. "I  won't mind anything except you.

A large number of crows" were foraging for food Dot long ago close to the  house of a farmer in West-Virginia.  They were unusually bold, as though  hunger had driven them to forget their  usual shyness and distrust' of their  natural enemies���������men.  Two of them alighted close to the  back door and picked up the crumbs  with an apparint assurance of their  safety not easily accounted for. The  farmer was telling a neighbor about  the tameness of the birds, and tbe latter remarked':  -  "You won't see them foolhardy tomorrow."  "Why not tomorrow as well as today?'?.  ;'Because today Is Sunday, and these  crows know it. They know that "one  day in seven they are not popped at  by boys and men. They can count,  crows can, and they know that on the  seventh day they are exempt from persecution.  "1 once lived near a swamp where  thousands of crows made their roosting place, and early in tbe morning  they used to start for the mountains  for their food. I was often out with  my gun trying to get a shot at them.  Week days they ^ were shy of rue, and  I seldom got a shot at them, but on  Sunday morning It was different Then  they would fly low aud close to my  house, their wings almost flapping the  ridgeboards of house and barns. Do  crows know when It is Sunday? Of  course they do."���������Exchange.  WEAK, TIRED GIRLS  Will Find Health and Strength Through  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.

"'Don't want to sell" or some such  laconic rebuff was the'answer.  The manufacturer then drew from  his pocket a bundle of banknotes, about  ������5,000 worth.  "Mere paper," observed Turner,' with  grim humor," a little softened, however, and evidently-enjoying the joke.  "To be bartered for inere canvas,"  replied the persistent Gillott, waving  his hand at the "Building of. Carthage" and Its companions.  This tone of cool depreciation seemed to have a happy effect, and finally  Glllott departed with some ������5,000  worth of Turner's pictures.  Where the Cow's Kept.

It ls probably well known to on  readers that by means of revolving  soft copper disks, the edges of which  are served with diamond dust by beat  lag it In, diamonds can be sawed up  By means of sharp, rapidly revolving  Iron disks It Is possible to cut through  heavy steel armor plates of four to  eight inches In thickness. These phenomena belong to a'very ���������interesting  department In physics, the physics of  revolving bodies, that doub'less still  has a great deal that Is remarkable to  offer. The rotation of a wheel results  in the phenomenon that keeps the  .wheelman or bicyclist without'exertion free on his seat���������I. e��������� the so  culled free axis. We can also observe  It easily In a top, which. Its eijullib  Hum disturbed, us long as the rotation  Is rapid enough ulways resumes u cor  tain position In regard to Its axis with  out requiring pivot bearings. Itotailnn  also exercises a tension producing ef  feet on the substance of a revolving  body, and It Is this tension that Imparts to the soft saws referred to their  notable efficiency, If, for Instance, n  disk of thin cardboard Is caused by a  suitable transmission to rotate very  rapidly on the lathe tlie rotatory ten  slon causes the card to behave like  sheet metal..  , As the Natuwlsseusehaftlicho Wocb  cnschrlft states, the cardboard can  in such case no longer.be betit and it.  struck with a hammer gives off a  sound as though we were striking  bronze. This is, however, only the beginning. If we place on the shaft of  an electromotor a disk of good paper,  cut Into an exact circle about eight  Inches In diameter, this paper disk can  be made at the highest rotating speed  of the motor to saw through cigar box  wood." At the cutting surface it acquires a flue brown polish. The publication in question shows other interesting experiments. We caD, for instance, fit on the shaft'of the rotatory  apparatus a drum, about which may be  passed an annular closed little chain In  such a manner that at the highest "rotatory speed of which the motor, is  capable it can be slipped off the drum.  The chain will then behave like a  solid ring, roll across the table and  when It strikes the ground bounce up  like a hoop. The active principle on  which ail these tension phenomena are  based Is centrifugal force.  SHE COULD JOT  HOLD A TEACUP     "..' , /   ' i  BUT DODD'S KIDNEY PILLS CURED  MRS.  JAMES  H.

The quickest thinking 1 ever saw on  a baseball field was done by Tommy  McCarthy, the Boston 'outfielder of  years ago. Tom Browne, one of the  speediest runners that ever played  baseball, was on second base, and New  York needed one run to tie the score.  Jack Doyle, then a great batter, was  at bat, and It seemed certain that a  base hit by Doyle would tie the score  and perhaps" win the game, as there  was but one out, and Browne was so  speedy he could score from second  base on almost any kind of a safe bit  McCarthy crept closer to tbe Infield on  left, realizing that, although he could  throw with wonderful rapidity and accuracy, the chances were all against  throwing Browne out at the plate unless he was close and tbe ball on tne to  him quickly. Doyle drove a bard line  hit straight to tbe left field. Browne  went scudding toward ' third base.  Doyle raced for first, and McCarthy  plunged forward at top speed. The  fielder reached the bull on Its first  bound, grubbed it and without stopping or looking threw with terrific  force and perfect aim across tbe diamond Into the first baseman's hands  Browne had stopped at third base.  Doyle, who bad turued first with the  intention of sprinting to second, was  caught- standing still ten feet from  first The next batter went out on a  fly, and Boston won the game.  After the game I asked McCarthy  concerning tbe play. "Well." be explained, "Browne Is a quick thinker.  He saw Just how bard that ball was  hit and knew he would be thrown  out at tbe plate unless I fumbled  Doyle doesn't think very fast. and,,  knowing that he would turn first and  stop to see If I was throwing home, 1  threw across to first and caught hlui."  lie figured that- out while tbe ball  was screaming through the air toward  him, probably reaching bis conclusions  and making the decision lu four-fifths  of a second.���������Hugh S.

The stranger dropped-like a log. The cow-  bow dismounted and looked at the  body of his victim.  " I wonder if he was really going to shoot me," he soliloquized ;  "I'll see."   : .  Turning the body over, he discovered a flask ��������� of whiskey protruding from the pocket.  "Poor fellow," said he, in * a  tone of regret; " I've made a mistake. I've killed an innocent man  and a gentleman at that. He wasn't  going to kill me; he was going to  invite me to have a drink. Well,"  sighed, drawing his sleeve across  his mouth, "the last wishes of the  deceased shall be respected." _  Dr. MacLean of Phoenix has  taken over the practice of Dr J. E.

To that end,  vaudeville and circus attractions have  been ee< ured puch as are seldom  seen in theatre or circus. ^Some of  these attractions, in fact, would be  impossible in a theater or the largest circus.

'    My  sires .were  strong,   heroic  men, who fought on many a crimson field ;. and none could better  cut a throat, or batter down a foe-  man's   shield,;   and   some  were  knighted  by ��������� the king, and  went  around with' golden spurs,  which  must have been a nuisance when  they walked among thecockleburs.  Their sires were   barons  of  the  Rhine, who worked a now historic  graft; they held  up travelers by  day  and  quaffed   their  sack by  night, and laughed ; they- always  elept upon the. floor, and never  shaved  or  cut  their  hair; they  pawed their  victuals   with  their  hands, and never beard of underwear.   Their sires, some centuries  .before, ran naked through the virgin vales, distinguished from the  other apeS'becauBe they hadn't any  tails.

The   work- done by the Eoyal  Northwest Mounted Police natur-,  ally brings them in touch with the  worst of the people and when they  meet a good  class they, uo doubt,  appreciate, it.    Iu  the aunnal report presented  to parliament   by  tbe mounted  police, the following  on the Esquimo appears :  ��������� "E������quimo do not steal,   They  are  quite   religious, holding service on Sunday and doing no work'  on that day.    There   is no missionary here.    Their religion they  carry into their every day lives.  They neither   beg nor steal and  slander is unknown amongst them.  They are as near 'God's chosen  people' as any I have ever seen.  After ray experience of this world  I could almost wish I had been  born an Esquimo.    They are very  fond af.their children and take the  greatest care of them.   They never  require to be chastised,  and are  very  obedient.   One   never  sees  any    quarrelling     or     bickering  amongst  them.   They  show  the  true spirit of sport in their games  of   football   and   baseball.   They  play those games on tbe hard snow  when it registers 25 degrees below  zero."
