Not one would touch it."  "That makes no difference to the general character of the case. The tramp  is tho victim of misfortune. lie has  lost wife, children, all. Ho is bowed  ���������with sorrow. Ambition has fled. He  feels that the hand of all men is  against him. From our store of plenty  can we not afford him a crust or' a  'dime?

It is  going to ho a dark, rainy night, arid as  that poor, hungry tramp makes his bed  on a pile of ashce In some alloy what  can his thoughts of you be?"  ���������   "I don't believe there aro thousands  that feel as ynn do," replied Mrs. Bow-  Ber.  "I don't believe"���������  "Hold on right Micro, madam. I firmly bcllcvo that >ou are the only woman In this towrj that will bang tho door  on the toes of n hungry and dlscour-  nged tramp.

'; "How can you prove It?"  [ "You will soo at tho end of a couple  of hours."  .   For an Lour after dinner, until It be-  pan to grow dark. Mr. Bowser road his  (���������nper nnd smoked his cigar.  Then ho  disappeared   upstairs,   nnd   when   he  crime down again Mrs. Bowser thought  tho tramp hnd come back and sneaked  in nt the front door.   Mr. Bowser had  nnnrco up one or nis oldest suits ana  reduced It to a ragged state.  "And now what?" was asked.  "I am going to prove my case.   I am  dressed  like  a  tramp.    I  am   going  forth to appeal to the charity of my  follow men.   I shall find human sympathy with me.    You can't make mo  believe, Mrs. Bowser, that this town  holds another person as selfish as you  nre.    If It docs,   ttien  where is our  boasted Christianity?"  Mrs. Bowser made no objection to  bis going out, but smiled behind his  back as ho went. Mr. Bowser had  gono only three blocks before ho ������iaw <  a lady sitting on tho steps of her  house. Slip looked, sympathetic and  charitable. She looked tender hearted  and full of love for humanity, lie  therefore turned In, and, removing his  rusty old hat, he said:  "Lady, I am a tramp through misfortune. A tornado caused the deaths  of my wife and children, and"���������  "And why didn't it cause yours as  well?" -was asked.  "Madam, 1 ��������� was once a happy man.  I had around me"���������  "James," called the woman over her  shoulder to some one' in the house,  "here is some one bothering mo.  I'loaso come out and remove him."  "Madam, I simply ask for n crust of I  bread. I haven't had anything to eat ',  for three"��������� \  James appeared. He was n husky  husband. lie also had a voice on kim  like the roar of a bull. When he roared  at Mr. Bowser to "git" the disguised  tramp got. Five houses down a man  sat on his steps smoking. Mr. Bowser, loaned over the gate in a weary  way and -worked a bit of pathos into  his voice as ho asked:  "Sir, do you know what it is to be  all alone in this world?"  "Why don't you try tho jail for company?" was the reply.  "Can It be, sir, thnt I must sleep on  tho damp earth tonight for the want of  a dime to get mo a bed?"  "It can, and you'd better be doing it.  Come; go on with you!"  This was a direct and, an aggressive  order, and Mr. Bowser moved on. As  ho struck the next block he found a  cook taking the evening air nt a basement door. Sho was a middle aged  woman, and he saw pity in her eyes.  "I can sec that you have the heart of  a woman," he said as ho halted.  "And -what of it?"  "I crave a little food to assuage tho  pangs of hunger."  "Oh, you do! Bet-haps you crave a  strawberry shortcake with -whipped  cream on top."  "No, ma'am, only a fow crusts. I  am a broken, despairing man. Anything is good enough for mo."  '���������Then act in the way of sonic cop  and let him give you tho collar. Lord,  but how I should like to see him make  your heels fly!"  Sure of a Kind Welcome.  Farther down the street, but on the  opposite side, a woman was playing  the piano and singing "Nearer. My*  God, to Thee." As tlie words fla-ited  out of the open window upon the evening air Mr. Bowser felt sure that his  welcome would be kind. lie had  mounted the steps and was looking  into the hall when the music* ceased  and tho singer came out and said:  ."Well, sir, what is it?"  "Lady, will you please bo kind enough  to spare"���������  "No, sir!   You get right out of hero!"  "But, lady, I am not to blame for  my"-  "Oflicer, officer!" called the woman  to-a policeman that came pacing along  at just that moment. "Otlicer, please  remove this lazy and drunken old  tramp!"  Mr. Bowser -was removed. He was  removed "with energy. He was removed by tiro scruff, by the back, by  the arms and legs. lie was-yanked,  and he was twisted, and when lot go  of on the corner nnd told to "pike" his  head swam and his knees wabbled,  and the only conversation he could  call up was to say to himself:  "By tho seventeen bullfrogs of Bull  lake, but Mrs. Bowser shall suffer for  this!

Fow people are aware of the exist-  once of some novel occupations out of  which many an enterprising man is  .making a lucrative living.  One of the  queerest of these, given in a recent  London directory, is that of the expert  "smeller."   Scent-makers need someone   with   a   very   delicate   sense   of  smell to aid them in blending the ingredients of perfumes in proper proportions.  Queen  Alexandra's favorite  perfume���������violets���������costs ������10 per ounce  bottle,  and  in order that it may be  correctly blended before it is passed  for Her Majesty's use, it has to run  the    gauntlet    of    five    professional  "smellers" from ������5 to ������G weekly, and  they are insured against cold" and the  loss of their sense of smell.   Contractors for tho lighting of streets, large  public     buildings,     and     pleasure-  grounds oftcrr employ  "smellers"   to  trace escapes of gas, Is. being the sum  paid for every leakage reported.  _ Another occupation   which   is distinctly prominent on  the register of  Mr.    Chesterton's    Club   of   "Queer  Trades"   is   that  of  acting  as  "best  man" at weddings.   He is in great demand during this season of the year,  and on account of this he is classed  with the minister, and his fee is not  fixed.   Sometimes he secures as much  as ������5 at a single wedding, besides a  handsome   present  from   the   bridegroom.    But in the majority of cases  he is not nearly so fortunate, and his  usual  fee  may  be  classed  at  about  ������2 2s.   At this rate he makes more  than   enough   to   yield   him   a   fair  income.     He must be suave, adroit,  nimble-witted, and patient.  He never  gets rattled, never allows the groom  to  commit  any    glaring   error,   and  keeps a watchful eye lrpon the bride  and her maids to see that everything  passes off in  proper style.   Then, if  his engagement extends to entertaining the guests at the luncheon or party  afterwards,   he   must  be  able   to  sing and  dance,  be  conversant with  the latest of card games, and reply to  many of the speeches on behalf of his  clients.  SAVE THE CHILDREN.  Mothers who keep a box of Baby's  Own Tablets in tlie house may feel  that the lives of their little ones are  reasonably safe during the hot weather months. Stomach troubles,  cholera infantum and diarrhoea- carry  off thousands of little ones every summer, in most cases because the mother docs not have a safe medicine it  hand to give promptly.

This  should be repeated frequently until no  more dirt Is seen.  When tbe clock has dried oil the spindle holes carefully.

Will It Be the English of George Meredith or George Ade?  If. the slang of today is the correct  speech of tomorrow, what language  will our children speak a generation  hence? is the pertinent question asked  by a writer in the Boston Transcript  Will it be the English of George Meredith or tbe English of George Ade?  Shall we talk in tbe flowery hyperbole  of the Bowery, with which oar newspapers of today, and even our books,  are filled, or must we be content with  the speech that has satisfied many  generations of our forefathers? As  wo saunter along In enjoyment of the  invigorating spring air on a bright  Sunday morning, whether we have  been listening to tho words of the  preacher or merely taking our Sabbath  pleasure In tbe open, shall we say to  our children, "You kids -hike'along  home," or shall we tell them, "Run  along, and we'll follow?"

" 42  Are Now Highly Prized.  At tho end of the North parade,  Lowestoft, is the Warren House, a  place of great interest to connoisseurs  of china. It was here, in the eighteenth century, that a discovery oi  fine clay was made which eventually  led to Lowestoft manufacturing the  china which is now so rare that it is  almost priceless.  Initial experiments made by Hewlin  Luson, Esq., of Gunton Park, near  Lowestoft, with some fine clay discovered accidentally' on his estate resulted In complete success and ultimately  led to tbe opening of a factory at  Lowestoft in 175C for the manufacture  of fine earthenware and porcelain "soft  paste."  In 17V5 a finely glazed and decorated  "hard paste" was introduced, the efficiency and beauty' of which betokened a brilliant success for tho proprietors. Contemporary evidence indisputably shows that from 1770 to  1S00 the Lowestoft works were at the  zenith of their fame. Owing, however,  to tho enormous expenses and difficulty iucurred in procuring, china clay  from Cornwall and elsewhere (after  the original clay was exhausted) and  the rapidly increasing competition of  other makers its prosperity waned, the  collapse came, and the .works were  closed In 1S03.���������London Globe.  words and catch phrases of the street  to add to Its vigor and variety.

Bryan    Has    Her    Own    Stenographic System.  Mrs. William Jennings Bryan is the  only  woman on  record  who has invented   a   stenographic   system,   and  there is nothing impractical about the  method, for she has proved its value  In acting as secretary to her husband.  Of course in the event of Mrs. Bryan  becoming the mistress of the  White  House she will resign the work to a  staff of secretaries of the Loeb order,  but it is safe to predict that not a man  will be found to give the same satisfaction to the great commoner.    Mrs.  Bryan's system   Is  the  growth  of  a  dozen years or since tho stirring day  in   1S90 when  her husband  won  his  Grst   presidential   nomination   by   his  "cross of gold" speech.   At that time  tbe Bryan purse was so lean it denied  the  luxury of .a  paid secretary,  and  Mrs. Bryan elected herself to the post.  At .first the work was slow and discouraging, but gradually Mrs. Bryan invented a stenographic code until now  she easily follows her husband In his  swiftest moments.    Bryan is one of  the quickest talkers before the public,  and  his wife's success seems almost  impossible to expert users of tbe Pitman    and   other   standard    systems.  Only   one   professional   stenographer  has been found equal to the task of  reporting   accurately   all   of   Bryan's  words on the platform, and this man is  put  to  a   harder   strain   than   Mrs.  Bryan. Every morning after breakfast  Mrs. Bryan takes a dictation from her  husband; then when he busies himself  with other duties she runs a typewriter,  with nimble fingers.   It has been said  that Mrs. Bryan has refused a largo  amount of cash for- a complete chart  of her system, the chief merit of which  lies In its simplicity.

Like the events which, propelled  the pen of Bret. TJarte, was one  which occurred recently at Rawhide, Nevada���������the death and funeral of Riley Grannan, race track  plunger and mining town saloon  keeper. No stranger scene was  described by the clnonicler of the  Argonauts than this funeral in the  new town which is at the doors of  civilization.  Shielded by an oilcloth blanket  r,be coffin of Grannan was borne in  a common express wagon down  Rawhide avenue from the tent of  the camp's undertaker. The services were held in a variety theatre  in the rear of a saloon. Here  gathered women in silks, men in  corduroys, miners in grimy overalls, prospectors, merchants', brokers, burtenders and gamblers.  Tliere was no regular minister to  preach the funeral sermon, friends  of Grannan drafted Herman W.  Knickerbocker, formerly a Methodist preacher, who had been cast-  out of the fold for heresy.
