A communication was read from Mrs. John C. Reed in regard to an abatement of her taxes. The matter was referred to Aid. Tripp, who is tax collector.

Chief Eaton reported in regard to the

hydrant in front of the American home on Main street. The chief was instructed at tbe last regular meeting of the board to have tbe hydrant either moved out to the curbing or to have it raised to its

proper height. As the hydrant now sets it is almost

useless, being so near the ground and rei

dering it almost impossible to make con-

nections in case of fire. It is true tbi t connections could be made as it is now, but during the hurry and bustle of a firr, it would be nearly impossible to do so

without the loss of valuable time. When tbe new sidewalk was laid on

Main street tbe hydrant was moved back to its present position instead of being put to the curbiug where it should have been.

Tbe water company naturally does not want to stand the expense of moving the

hydrant again, but seems perfectly willirg to if the city will stand tbe expense. It

was tbe opinion of tbe board that tbe hydrant should be at tbe curbing and that tbe city ought to stand the expense.

However, the matter was left with the committee on fire department consisting of Aid. McCarthy, chairman, Austin and

Hooper, with full authority to do as they see fit.

Tbe chief engineer also called the at- tention of the board to a request be had received from Dr. J. S. Sanger and sev-

eral others interested, in regard to lend-

ing fire hose. Tne hose is wanted to fill a

couple of skating rinks which these gentlemen are building. This was also referred to the committee ou fire depart- ment.

Jeremiah Hurley appeared before the board asking the city to reimburse him for damages nis horse had received on the Stabawl road.

Early in the spring and when Mr. Hur- ley was doing much driving between his farm and his home, t he road got in a bad condition, and in coming in bis horse had stuck his loot under a culvert, throwing the horse, breaking the harness and the wagon. Mr. Huney said be bad pre- viously notified the street commissioner of the had stiane the road was in, and asked him to fix it.

According t> Mr. Hurley the street commissioner did not repair the road, and his (Mr. Hurley’s) horse received an in- jury from which he has not recovered. The matter was left to the commiltee on

streets, consisting of Aid. Moore, Tripp t n 1 Hooper.

Topic Kor the Week Brclllllliir Hee. tt— (.'nmment by Km. S. H. 1);

Topic.--What tlle hcrtsea of t±ltt BB.—Heb. xi, 1-40.

The eleventh chapter of Hebrews is

one of great Interest ami In pirailon. Here we have recorded a long list of

the ancient patriarchs, whose lives were in harmony with the will of God and who because of their faith in Him j made their lives count and “obtained a good report." Heroes ividt d and j heroes of faith! Not by might nor by ;

power, but by faith in God. tlmy “sub- 1

clued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stoppetl the mouths >

of lions, quenched the violence of lire. \ escaped the edge of the swor.U out of j weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in light, turned to flight the! armies of aliens.” As heroic denis in-

spire to emulation, so also should the j faith of heroes, and from a study o£ j this chapter our faith in God through I Jesus Christ should tie more firmly es-

tablished. The fat'.h of these ancient heroes pos-

sessed several important characteris- tics. (1) It was faith In God. The faith defined and illustrated here is not distinctive Christian faith. Saving faith In Jesus Christ is something en-

tirely different. This was faith in God. In His power and in His promises. Such faith always proceeds Christian faith. It Bhould exist In every human heart and prepare the way for saving faith in Christ. (2) It was a practical faith. Some religious faith is not practical. It la not applied to the daily affairs of life. We believe, but do not live by oar beliefs. Not so was it with these Old Testament worthies. They based their lives upon their faith. Dangers, difficulties, trials and afflictions had no

terrors for them because of their faith In God. Our faith should be practical. It should sustain us in difficulty, in- Optra us to duty and comfort us in trial and affliction. A fruitless faith is a -worthless faith. (3) It was an adapta- ble faith. The experiences of none of tbeae worthies were exactly alike, yet faith in God was adaptable to every experience. Nor is there any condition or experience in life where faith in God will not sustain us. It is able to Beet the wants and needs of every human heart and life.

The numbers of the heroes of faith are alao worthy of our attention. Many young people have the erroneous idea that but few of the world's great men

have been men of faith. The Impres- sion somehow prevails that religious faith has been for the most part ex-

ercised by children and women. Rut nothing could be further from the truth, as we see illustrated here. All of Israel’s great men from Abel to Malachi are included in tills list of faith heroes. Nor has the Jewish na-

tion been peculiar In this respect. The world’s truly great men have all be- lieved in God. Therefore, we should not hesitate to believe nnd to act up to onr faith. “Seeing we also are com-

passed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us * * * run with pa- tience the race that is set before us. looking unto Jesus, the author and fin- isher of our faith.”

Enlargement. Let us increase our working forces.

Every manufacturing plant when it de- cides to do more business adds to its horse power. The soul power of the Christian Endeavor society is the ac-

tive membership. Enlarge your active membership. Every real active mem-

ber won Is a new force added to the dynamics of the kingdom of heaven. Do not overwork the story of Gideon and his 300. It does not teach that God prefers to work with the few rather than the many. Ten thousand Gideonites are better than 300—only see that they are Gideonites. Let ns

get away forever from the heresy that a Christian Endeavor society is a

little clnb of like minded yonng peo- ple who meet together once a week for a pleasant little conclave of a re-

ligions character. A good Endeavor society may be very small, but it is always as large as Its field allows.— Rev. Dr. Francis E. Clark In Presi- dent's Annual Address at Denver Con- vention.

Worth the ('out. The Epworth Leaguers cheerfully

footed bills to the amount of $9,000 for their recent international gathering at Detroit, and confidently counted It “worth every cent of it.” We have not seen the figures of the Denver commit- tee. but we know they paid every item with a glad heart and felt that they were putting their money where it would bring large and lasting returns for the advancement of the cause of Jesus Christ.—John R. Clements in

“Empire State Notes.”

Denver Snap Shot*. The man who has been thinking that

the sun of Christian Endeavor is set-

ting will have to think again. We art

not looking back upon our Egypts. lint we are looking forward, with our faces toward the land of promise. — Kev. .tames Alexander.

The best way to get new members into the Christian Endeavor society is to have a first class prayer meeting.— II. A. Kinports.

'Hie teacher is the one who "wakes tin:” the scholar Is the one who re-

sponds. Let our motto be. “A junior society connected with every Endeav- or society.”—Kev. George F. Kenngott.

We keep the Idea strongly to- the front that Christian Endeavor Is appli- cable to every denomination —Kev. Dr. F E. Clark.

A plan in the Christian Krd"-rrnr World is j-.od. bt t a plan in the bris- lian End-e-er member is better.— William Siuiiv.

Dear M. K. Friends: I give you first out of my rich stor hou^e

for this week a practicable and aval able

and what would mem to te a *en»ib e

remedy for smallpox which *‘8” kindly send*.

Mari avi llk.

I have not written for some time for Aunt

Madge's column, as I thought some one else per-

haps could write something that would be of more Interest to the readers, but as smallpox is

now going the rounds, perhaps It would be of interest to know of a cure.

Edward Hines wrote that be was willing to lose his reputation as a public man If the worst

case of'smatlpox could not be cured in three

days, simply by the aid of cream of tartar used as follows:

One ounce of cream of tartar dissolved In a

pint of water; drink at Intervals when cold. This Is a certain, never-fniU** remedy.

I think U is nice to have a home doctor column in each paper. If I see this In print will write more. *•

We ahall be glad to beer from you again*

To the dear onee of the M B. Column: How are you all? And why don’t some of

you sisters, aunts and grandmas of long stand-

ing tell us what the something new Is to be for our column? I’ve been waiting with patience si nee Aunt Madge spoke of it, for some one to

propose a new theme, or subject, and while we

wait, one for the other, let’s talk about what rests us most when we are dead tired of house work and all the care that goes with It. is It a

good long sleep that rest nerves and body, or

good music, a nice book, a bright, breeay friend to talk with, a long ride with lots to look at, or a

long visit away from home? For my tonic and

rest, first. I’d like to look at a lot of flowers new kinds, especially, end rar*j plants; then l*d like a bunch of sweet peas to bold and smell, and then I’d be rested.

And let’s hear from all hands, which they had rather have If they couldn’t have both—a whole lot of dress-up clothes or plenty of fresh oprons, wrappers and good-looking house shoes for

every day ? About that poem of R. W. Emerson that Aunt

Madge didn’t understand, I think he must have been so full of good feelings that he sort of hummed Inside, like a sewing machine at work, or a range In full heal; any how I am very glad 1

! don't always hear a song In the mud ami scum

i of things. If 1 did my kitchen floor would slug 1 most of th** time.

Yes, I must tell you that I have a new range.

I can rush the cooking now and no smoke to

bother. I think the apple pies are nicer cooked in an oven that will keep hot after the fire Is down, and that makes me think, what kind of

spice is best to flavor apple pie® with? isn’t there something new about the apple pie busi- ness, if there Is let’s hear U, for l make lots of them, and would line a change In the taste. 1 use clove and <-a.~*la together for mine. Yes, and 1 build up round them just as we do for a

custard, then cut the top paste by a plate that 1* the size of try pie tin and lay it on alter making slils in it, pressing it on to the apple; that leaves a vent all round the edge and the pie won’t run

out at all, unless one has a too hot oven, then It

only spatter® out a llule. Here is a nine way to make rolls for breakfast

Three cups of rolled oat®, 1 cup of flour or

flouright, 1 egg, 1 cup of buttermilk, 1 heaping teaspoon of soda, small teaspoon of salt, 1 tablespoonful of sugar. 1 tablespoonfai of creagn, lard or cottolene, sweet milk enough to

make a soft dough or batter, a real hot oven, and they will come out light and crisp. This is enough for a family of four. Try U.

Aunt Madge, you must have been aweary when you said we were born to be self-satisfied; you arc way off sure. The shortcomings, mis- takes, the chances to do good, the little helps we

might give and do not, the letters we shoul 1

write, and the calls we should make. Ah, me! Wluit a list there is! No, 1 don’t think anyone is ever ful'y satisfied with himself. Give us

something easier to think about next time. 1 like the column in this week’s pipe

nob’y, and If you feel self satis fled, 1 say you have a perfect right to. “Esther,” that was such

a nice letter you wrote to the new beginners. 1

knitting work and run into the neighbor’s and talk it over. How many of us do It? Not many, 1 reckon. Those days seem to be or the past, when there was lime for a whole afternoon of

knitting; now it’s the grange, fairs, clubs, lodges, camping out. going to Europe, and ao

about one's nook and says. "And I think it would be so lovely to ha re

diamond side combs Instead of a soli- taire. if y. J don't mind, dear.” and blushes—

Well, one buys the side combs with- out a question, and later perhaps one

reflects. Hut then it's too late. It thus befell witli Hark new. and

Leila wore tlie two starry bunds so

deftly poseii amid tbe knotted tangles of her sunny curls that they suggested, a diadem and in nowise led any man

to the conclusion w hich time honored custom bas drawn from tbe solitaire. In fact, before the betrothal was a

week old Harkness himself began to

wonder. Aud when, at a dance at the I.ake-

side club, young Wrycroft. the very famous half hack. Invited Leda to go. out for a moonlight row around the pier with him and Leda accepted and went Harkness not only wondered, but grit his teeth as well. No man who has spent ten years dancing attend- ance on other men's fiancees and other men's wives is going to enjoy life while ills own personal finncee and future wife is ofT with a fellow whose name has headed newspaper columns and whose chest can hardly find space for all his medals. The couple were

gone an hour and seven minutes by a

watch which had come down through three generations of the Harkness fam- ily. and when they did reappear the owner of the watch stood at the bead of the wide stair and claimed the young lady for the next waltz. Wry- croft. happily oblivious to his crime, strolled off. and Harkness led the girl around the wide promenade to a place which was quiet and retired enough for private conversation. He was boil- ing within, but nothing could have been more sweetly calm than the way in which he put his arm about her and asked with careless placidity:

"Did you row far. dear?" “I didn't row at all.” said Leda. “He

rowed." Harkness kissed her with exceeding

gentleness. “Did you land anywhere, darling—on the Point, for instance?''

"N-u-u-o." said Leda. Harkness passed his finger over her

pretty hair in silence for a few min- utes. and then lie suddenly gave a

siiurp exclamation: "Good God. Leda. you've lost one of

.your combs!" Leda put both hands to her bead and

almost shrieked as she realized the truth.

“Perhaps you forgot to put one in?" said her lover.

“No; I had them both. I'm sure.” She began to cry. Harkness scratched matches, and they both looked ull over

the floor, but uot a diamond glittered in the general gloom of the hour.

Very much later in the evening while Harkness was twostepping with Mrs. Lancaster a sudden turn showed him Leda speaking earnestly to Wrycroft. Wrycroft looked terribly used up. ami Harkness smiled grimly.

"Oh. what a smile!” said Mrs. Lan- caster. "It's both impressive and frightening. You make me afraid of you. and yet I admire the smile."

Harkness wondered if he wasn’t a

fool to he contemplating the addition of another wife to the assemblage.

"Y'ou look like a cross between Meph- Istopheles and Machiaveill.” went on

Mrs. Lancaster, who was sleuder and never lost tier breath. "Which do you favor?"

“1 can't spell either.” replied Hark- ness shortly. He felt Inclined to join the next expedition to the north pole.

The dance endured exceedingly late. It was quite 3 when the last woman

retired, and a half dozen men were

still lounging on the piazzas when the first gray streaks of dawn appeared above the Point. Harkness sprang up when he perceived them and yawned vigorously.

“I’m going to bed.” lie declared, "and I shall not tarry long upon the order >f my sleeping, either.”

Young Wryeroft stood up. too. and passed his band over his forehead.

“I dou't feel very fit." he said slowly. “I believe I'll go for a little row and maybe take n dip from the Point."

He went down the steps as Hnrkness entered the house. Later curiosity led the latter to wander to the window aud look to see If Wrycoeft was really car-

rying out bis purpose. A rowboat lay on the sandy stretch

opposite, and the rosy light of the ris- ing sun Illumined a figure which paced restlessly up and down the rustic paths skirting the shore.

”1 shouldn't call that exactly swim- ming?” said Hnrkness to himself a lit- tle grimly. He pulled down the shade with a violent jerk and got Into bed. ***••*•

It was quite noon when lie nwoke. The day was glorious, and the bosom of the lake was dotted with sailing parties. He gave the bell '.wo punches for hot water and twisted the dressing case toward the window as a prelimi- nary to shaving. The mirror reflected the Point, and us Ilarktess started to

tip it lie saw a girl disembarking alone. He unhung his Held glasses. Yes. it was Leda! He threw the glasses on the bed and

went on with his toilet. Every one was at Jkneheon when be

went down, and as he stopped by Leda’* chair to remind her that she Was to drive out with him at :• he

could not help seeing bow wretched she looked. Her hair l*ore no sign of j skip comb.

When they went out Inter there seemed to be .0 species of shadow mix- fd with the preliminary s'lenee.

The man spoke tlrst (and he waited a good While!.

“You haven't found it. have you?” “Oh. dear, no.” “liou't you think perhaps it fell out

In the boat?” “Why. there was nothing in the boat

to loosen it." darkness felt the corners of Ills

mouth suddenly give way even while his temper rose. lie looked off to the right for n long minute uud then asked severely:

“Was there anything at the Point to

loosen it?" I-eda's mouth flew open In undis-

guised fright. "Who told yon wo were to the

Point.' "I knew it all the time.” She began to cry. ”1 never will again, truly.” “How conk) you behave so?” said the

lover, launching himself suddenly into the full tide of ills righteous wrath. "You put me beyond all patience: go- ing off like that with Wryeroft. when yon know iierfectly well that you lie-

long to some one else, and then actually letting him"—

I.eda seized bis arm.

“Only once.” she protested earnestly, "only once.”

"Oity-e is once too often.” said Hark- ness, a great and exceeding bitterness welling up In his tone. “Once is a great, great many times too often, consider- ing the situation. Now. Leila. listen to

me.” he continued sternly, “Either promise me tlist you will never, never

again do anything In the slightest de- gree questionable or we'll call It all off. and yon can give me back the comb that you still have.”

“Oh, I'll promise!” said Leda. with a

submissive choke “I’ll never, never do so again. Truly, truly. Upon my word and honor.”

Harkneas looked to the tight and left and behind. Then he leaned down and kissed her.

Leda smiled happily, almost forget- ting the side comb.

“She’s a dear little giri.” said her lover, and. taking all the driving appa- ratus into Ills right hand, be thrust the loft into his breast pocket and drew forth the missing comb.

I.eda screamed. “Ob, where did you find it?” "I didn't find it anywhere." he said

coolly, as he adjusted the reins ngain. “I took it out of your hair myself last night.”

A Dok'i Fidelity. In the upper part of the famous Se-

quatchie valley. In east Tennessee, a

man and his wife settled when the country was new and wild. One of the first crops that they raised was a con-

siderable field of cotton. When it was

ready to be picked, they went out to- gether. prepared to make a holiday out of this pleasant labor. Their one baby was left in n cradle at the edge of the field, and the faithful old dog was

instructed to wnteli the tiny sleeper. After a considerable time they looked

toward the cradle to see if all wus well there. They were startled by the dis- covery that the little eoucli had been turned completely over. Tile dog was

making queer dives underneath and yelping as If in anger. As they hasten- ed to the place they were horrified to find the animal's jaws covered with blood and instantly came to the con-

clusion that he had been rending the child with his teeth.

The angry father hit the animal a

deathblow with a cudgel and then hastily turned the cradle right side up. Then' was the baby all unbanned, and there in the bedding was an enormous

rattlesnake, killed by the faithful dog after a fierce fight, in which both com

bntants had received many wounds.— Springfield Republican.

bun* That Saved Llvn. Ouns have plenty of uses apart from

killing. For instance, the signal gun of a ship is intended solely for an-

nouncing her arrival on a coast. Again. In desert countries, where water is often difficult to collect out of a mere

dampness of sand, a gun barrel sunk into the ground will collect moisture in the bore, and many a life lias been saved by a timely suck at the muzzle.

Minute guns are tired for public mourning, and national rejoicings tuke the form of a royal salute.

A slaver captured with a cargo of slaves in the tropics was put in charge of a prize crew. On her voyage the wa-

ter ran short, and the slaves, slavers and prize crew were dying of thirst. This set one of the marines, a sergeant, thinking, and he hit upon a brilliant idea.

After regaining reluctant consent from the captain he took all the availa- ble gun barrels, plugged up the breech ends of a few of them, filled their bores witli sea water and set them end up among the coals of the galley fire. As tbe steam rose he ran it through other gun barrels until it got cool. The i-ool- iug steam collected in the shni>e of ex- cellent fresh water, of which lie pro- cured a steady though small supply.— London Telegraph.

only equaled by bis dexterity in getting possession of the birds. Weak consider- ations of mine and thine do not trouble him in the least. In any event bis logic is equal to the strain of a good excuse. Witness the following conversation:

An Impadeot Indorsem*nt.

During one of his busy reception hours, when I‘resident Lincoln was

talking first to one, then to another, of the many who filled the room In the White House, a gentleman asked if any news had been received from John Mor-

gan. whose Confederate cavalry were

raiding Kentucky and Ohio. "We’ll catch John aome of these

days,” replied Lincoln. "I admire him. for be is a bold operator. He always goes after the mail trains In order to

get information from Waahington. On his last raid he opened some mail bags and took possession of the official corre-

spondence. "One letter was from the war depart-

ment to a lieutenant in Grant's army. It contained a captain's commission for him. Right under the signature of A. Lincoln the audacions Morgan wrote, ‘Approved, John Morgan,' and sent the commission on its way. So there is one

officer in our army whose commission bears my signature with the approval of that dnredevil rebel raider.”

Lordly Dlaraell. Disraeli once told a lady that two

possessions which were Indispensable to other people he had always done without. “1 made,” she said, "every kind of conjecture, but without suc-

cess. and on my asking him to en-

lighten me he solemnly answered that they were a watch and an umbrella. •But bow do you manage,’ I asked, ‘If there happens to be no clock in the room and you want to know the time?' ‘I ring for a servant.’ was the magnilo- quent reply. ’Well,’ I continued, ’ami wliat about the umbrella? What do you do, for Instance, If you are in tho park and nre caught in a sudden show- er?' ‘I take refuge.' he replied with a smile of excessive gallantry, 'under the umbrellu of the tirst pretty woman

I meet.'

Two Standards. One of the strangest illustrations of

the ups aud downs of fortune comes from I’aris.

A rich Parisian banker became re- duced through unlucky investments to the sum of 10.000 francs. That amount was poverty to him, and, overwhelmed by bis loss nnd the hopelessness of the situation, he committed suicide.

The 10,000 francs then fell to his brother, who had Ix-en for years a pau- per, estranged from his family. Hut to him sticli a sum represented incred- ible riches, and his reason was over- thrown. In a moment of delirium be jumped into the Seine and was drown- ed.

SIMPLY BREATHE IT. A Few Minute* Use of Hyomei Four Times a Day Cures Catarrh.

The pleasantest, most convenient and the only scientific method for the treatment and cure of catarrh is Hyo- mei. Simply put twenty drops of Hy- omei In the inhaler that comes with every package and then breathe it for a few minutes four times a day.

It seems remarkable that so simple a way of treating catarrh will effect a

cure, but the most important discov- eries of science have always been the simplest. Hy breathing Hyomei in this way every particle of air that en-

ters the air passages of the throat and head and goes into the lungs is charged with a healing balsam that kills the germs and bacilli of catarrh and soothes and allays all irritation.

The lirst day's use of Hyomei wilt show a decided improvement and in a

short time there will lie no further trouble from catarrh. Its action is rapid and lasting.

You take no risk in buying Ilyomci. A complete outfit costs SI.00, and if after using you can say that it has not helped you, (jeorge A. 1'archer will re- turn your money. What other treat- ment for catarrh is sold under a guar- antee like this?

"Elizabeth, the eternal feminine will assert Itself."

Elizabeth rmt on her long blue paint- ing apron without replying ami began to stretch a canvas. She was adorable so, her gray -yes'defiantly averted and a flush of anger on her cheeks.

"There you go again. If I don’t know my own mlml at twenty-six when will I?”

“At twenty-seven or eight perhaps. 1 hope sooner. Y our Ideas art all wrong Believe me, the day will come when you will long for a home of your own

and some one nearer than a girl friend or masculine admirer.”

He had the last word, for the nr

rival of the model, a thin, shabby look- ing girl, put an end to the discussion.

"Tomorrow at 5. then?” Elizabeth gave a brisk little nod.

She was nirendy sketching In the out- lines of her study, and Phil was for- gotten before he had dosed the door.

The young man was unite accustom- ed to such treatment. Admitted as ho was to her most Intimate friendship on an understanding of strict camarade- rie, he broke over the traces every year, was invariably refused and lx>re his defeat with easy atiount. Some day she was bound to cbuuge her mind, and lie might he the lucky man.

Elizabeth's own opinion was very different. She bad un time for thought until her work was laid aside for tho day. Then she sank into a nest «t cushions to think luxuriously.

No, Plill was wrong. She would nev- er care to leave her studio—above all. to marry. Had not the art school girls who married censed developing intel- lectually? Shut up in their own tout wall*, they became entirely absorbed In dear Tom or Hick and the children

Children! Elizabeth shuddered. A •child In a hook or picture was ver, delightful, but tbe reality, n dirty lit tie creature always orying-or being 111. She would never leave her work, hei studies, her pleasures, for a deadly stupid family life. Never!

A cry of warning. The trolley cm

stopped with a lurch. In an instant the conductor and motorman were down in the street, followed by most of the passengers. Elizabeth, impa- tient at the delay, resolved to walk the block or two remaining, ller mod- el would he waiting for her at the studio.

When she left tlie car she found her- self the only woman in a large group collected about a sickening black mass which had splashed ear wheels and

-cobblestones with blood. The con- ductor, a good natured looking young Irishman, Stood with tears rolling down his face. He was holding a golden hair- ed baby, a toddler of a year or two. The motorman, white and frightened, wil* telling how the baby had sudden !

ly run lit front of the ear and the moth- er had thrown the little one out of the way, only to be crushed herself.

The child began to cry, and the con-

ductor turned to Elizabeth imploring- ly. "You take the baby. mum. The ambulance Is cornin’. The cops will be after tiudin’ Its relatives.”

Before she could reply he had put the baby In her unresisting arms.

Some moments later, hardly know-

ing how it had all happened, she found herself walking into her studio build- ing carrying a little child. In her purse was a bit of paper Inscribed "U> I’lum- 1

ley alley.” It was the |>oor woman’s j address, to which she had promised to ; tuk\ him. A man she knew, who was

passing along the corridor, smiled and remarked, "Bather a small model. Miss Blair.” Elizabeth flushed as if sue bail

committed a crime ami was relieved to

close the studio door behind her. Then she put down her burden and

looked at her watch. Ten o’clock! The model had come and gone. No

hope now. She herself would have to

take the child home. A short confer- ence at the phone told her the where- abouts of riutnley alley, eight squares south and just off the —th street ear

line. When site left the phone she found

the little one standing close by. Eliza- beth Studied ldm witli half shut eyes.

“Not bad,” she thought—"a I>ona-

tello, if the forehead were a little high- er and the eurls not so tine and tight, llow X should like to paint him! Come,

here, little one. What’s your name?” “Alan Campbell naughty.” “Are you naughty?” “’Es. I want my muvver.” His mother! Elizabeth felt a quick

pang of horror. “Come here, and 1

will show you something pretty.” She held out her watch. The silver

and gold ornameuts on its loug chain

jingled attractively. Alan Campbell slowly drew' near the shining object, lie seized it just as a little stray dog would have done a hit of cake seized it and walked away. Then Elizabeth brought out pictures. It was surpris- ing how' quickly they were friends,

sitting on the floor side by side look-

ing at “puss*es” asd "doggies.” It was after 11 when Alan Camp-

\ Ill’s face began to look doleful. “I want a cup of mlllik,” he an-

nounced. There wore a pitcher of cream, some

biscuits and a glass of Jelly ,n

stock of tea table provisions, with

this tunchoon spread out before h m,

Alan Campbell was soon installt on

the edge of the model stand. When he had drunk all the cream

except that which soaked into her pret-

ty rug. ' face wua gory with currant jelly, nml biscuits bad lost their attraction. Ell?*Seth took one sticky little liniiil in hers and led him flrmly to the waslistaud. After he was clean and dry she sank Into a chair, ex hausud.

i “1 want up on •up.” cried a little 1 voice appealingly.

She drew him up. For awhile he was a mused by her velvet blouse; tlieu

j his eyes began to close. Alan Cump- ; bell's head was on Elizabeth's shout- ! <Ier Hta right linial clasped berstight-

'y- He was fast asleep. Elizabeth hail the true artistic nature

! which when it feels does so with aban- don. 1 lie soft little body in arms,

i (he warm, sweet breath on her face,

j touched the very depths of her heart. Never In her life had she felt so

strangely happy—happy and yet trou- bled. She was embarrassed before tier own emotions and bent her head, clasp- ing him more tightly. The .world thought of her as a woman. She had a

womanly poise and n strong character, but her heart, a girl's heart, could not understand this awakening of mysteri- ous Instincts, tlie motherhood beneath her culture anil ambition and stronger tlmn both. Tbe Hying moments, her beloved work, everything was forgot- ten as she held tlie sleeping child.

A half hour passed, an hour. Alan Campbell suddenly opened a pair of questioning blue eyes. Startled by tbe strange face, lie cried: "Where's my muvver? I want my muvver!” Ilis little body shook with sobs.

ltudoly aroused from her dream, Elizabeth felt a quick pang of jcnl- ousy. Yes, she was jealous of tlie wo-

man whose hold on tbe child even death was powerless to break. Silent- ly she put on her wraps, gathered Alan CampN-11. sobs and ail. into her arms and hurried down to tbe —tb street cars.

l’lumley alley proved to be a neat j flagged court and No. 10 a tiny white ! house with green shutters. A little old

mail, whose eyes were swollen with weeping, came to answer her ring. Alan Campbell called "Iluddo Grum- py.” The |KMir old fellow tried in vain to control Ids grief. The girl shook tlie trembling old baud and turned away.

| unable to express her sympathy. Alan Campbell smiled after her like a sun- ueniu.

Elizabeth closed her stuillo door with a shiver. Never had it looked more

beautiful, more orderly or more cold and still.

“I want my mower,” a little voice kept sounding in her ear. Ah. these mothers she had been pitying, how she envied them now! It was ridiculous to feel so, and yet. and yet she knew her arms would always be empty and her whole body hungry for the presence, the caresses of a little child, something of her own, her very own, to love.

There was hardly time to arrange her hair and light the spirit lamp bo- fore Phil knocked. Hoping that he would not notice her red eyelids, she concentrated her attention on the tea

things. She thought she was succeed-

ing until Phil said, “What’s up, Eliza- beth?”

“Oh,” site replied, “I saw a frightful accident this mortiiug. I can't seem to

forget it.” Tears rolled down her Cheeks.

Phil longed to take the sensitive girl info his arms, but lie only said cbeer-

ingly: "There are many cruel things in this

world. We can't help them. Try to forget all this. Put on your hat and come out to dinner with me. I’ll teil

you what—we'll go and see Wilson in

•The Matador;' make you laugh; do you good.”

She only sobbed. Phil knelt beside her chair and took

her hand. “Please don’t cry. It hurts me to see

It.” It was very nn-EIlzabeth-Iike, but

somehow she let her head droop on his shoulder and dosed her eyes, as Alan

Campbell had done. It was so good to

feel some one near, some one who was

strong and who loved her. Phil could not understand, but was grateful for the miracle which had made the girl he loved seel; his arms like a child, lie spoke low and tenderly.

“Dear, won’t you let me be your con-

soler always?" lie bent Ids head to her tear stained

cheek and her little word of reply was

not so loud as the glad beating of his heart.

“Only,” said Elizabeth, when she had recovered something of her usnal

spirit, "don't Batter yourself it was

your conquest. It was nothing at all hut the eternal feminine.”

The Independent Cat.

'“There Is nothing I admire in a cat

so much as her absolute independ- ence,” said a man as he watched a big Angora sweep haughtily around the

room. “You are bound to treat a cut

kindly. If you abuse her or ill treat

her she cares nothing more for you. Now, a dog will lick the hand that

beats him. but a eat will have only the

utmost contempt for you. This tenden-

cy of n dog to love its master even aft-

er it has been kicked may appeal to

some, but I like the cat’s high, proud spirit better. This independent spirit of the cat crops out in many ways. You may slap her for stealing milk,

but the next time she gets a chance

she will steal milk. She will appro-

priate the best chair In the room and

endure with a supercilious air your po-

lite hints or stern commands to her to

get down. But she will never budge until the spirit moves her or you re

move her by force. If she is crazy to

get in the window and you open it for

her, she takes her time, stops to sniff

a bit and does not allow you to think

for one Instant that she was at all con-

cerned over the opening of that win-

dow. They are beautiful animals, and

they know it and if you don't like

them they don't care a hang.”—New York Times.

Drtrnsjnjile Fair.

An annual fair at Barnstaple, Eng- land. has been held for hundreds of

years. It was originally held In July, tut the time was altered to September by a charm* granted by Queen Mary. Barnstaple f<!r is inaugurated with a

ceremony iu the town hall, where a

special meeting of the town council is

held and spiced ale and toast (prepared in the council chamber by the beadles and mace bearersi are dispensed to all who crowd the building. Appropriate toasts are proposed and speeches made by the local member of parliament and others, after wbieli the mayor proceeds in procession to three points of the town, at each of which is read his proc- lamation opening the fair and enjoin- ing all concerned to keep the peace dur- ing Its continuance. Not until this ceremony has been performed can the business and fun of the fair proceed. On the inauguration of the fair a huge stuffed white glove, adorned with flow- ers, is thrust on a po'e from one of the upper windows of the town hall and remains In evidence during the contin- uance of the festival as the symbol of open handed welcome.

Went Rnck on HI* Authority. Freeman, the historian, was natural-

ly familiar in the spirit to readers of the Saturday Review. In the flesh Mr.

Leslie Stephen’s single meeting with the historian was in the nature of a

collision. “I came In contact with him only

onco, and at a later period. He wrote

a life of Alfred for the Dictionary of National Biography under my editor-

ship, but declined to do more because we had a difference of opinion as to

whether Athelstane should be spelled with an ‘A.’ That was, I confess, a

question to which I was culpably in- different, but X had taken competent advice, and my system (I forget what

It was) had been elsewhere sanctioned

by the great historian Stubbs. Now. as Freeman was never tired of assert-

ing the infallibility of Stubbs, I inno-

cently thought that I might take ref-

uge behind so eminent an authority. The result was that for once Freeman

blasphemed Stubbs aud refused to co-

operate any longer In an unscholarlike enterprise.’’

A SURPRISE [Original.]

Marguerita, wife of Prince Sergius Searoff, chief of police at St. Peters- burg. possessed a rare intellect Her husband admired her vigor of brain, but was A>ot sure that it was leading her in safe charnels. However, the two were very happy together, and fortune smiled on them.

One day Searoff received a terrible shock. Among a number of intercepted letters that had fallen Into the hands of the police and were laid before him was one written by his wife. It read:

tiring U to the rear door at 11 o’clock tenight—that is. if the emperor’s trip has been begun as announced on that day. If the trip is postDoned act accordingly.

Searoff was unnerved. It was plain that his own wife was in league with nihilists to assassinate the cznr. After awhile he tapped a silver bell on his desk. An attendant entered, and the chief directed him to pass the inter- cepted letter. Then lie ordered his car- riage and drove to the Winter palace.

“Your majesty,” he said as soon as

admitted to the emperor, “I beg that you will excuse me from attending you this evening.”

\\ hy so, prince™ "My spies lmve intercepted a letter

indicating that a bomb is to be deliv ered to a certain person at 11 o'clock on the ’k,:ht of your departure. It is doubtles# to be used on your return. Your majesty will be safe, at least, from this danger on your outward jour- ney, and I wish to attend personally to the capture of the bomb and its bearer myself. 1 consider it too important a

matter to leave to any one else.” “As you think best, prince.” Searoff returned to his house at 4

o'clock, threw some things into his valise and bid his wife goodby. She had known that he was to accompany the czar—it was ids custom to do so

whenever his master journeyed—and there was no surprise.

“The trip not being put off, I pre- sume there is no suspicion of danger,” remarked the princess.

"None whatever.” Without looking at his wife he start-

ed to go. He had reached the door when he heard her call him:

“Sergius"’ He turned. She was looking at him

reproachfully. "You have forgotten,”

i “Pardon me, dear. My mind is pre- occupied. These nihilists who are con-

stantly conspiring against the life of the czar keep me always thinking.”

He returned and kissed her. “How cold your lips are!" she said.

“Something is wrong. A blow is sure

to fall somewhere before morning. Some person or persons will go to the scaffold. I wish you were engaged in another occupation.”

"The chief horror of it is that we

officers of the police never know when it will be our duty to turn over to the executioner some one near and dear to

us. Last week one of my deputies was

obliged to arrest his own sister.” “Dreadful.” The prince passed out. Well might

his wife call Ills lips cold. It was a

wonder that he could control himself as well as he did. since he was going to watch for a bomb to be delivered to

his own wife. Starting in the direction of the railway station, he soon gave his coachman orders to turn and drive to his private office, which was sepa- rate from that in the headquarters of police. There he dismissed his car-

riage, telling his coachman that he would go to the station later and on

foot. Entering his office, he remained there till the clock struck 10, then emerged, disguised as a peasant, and directed his stops to bis own house. Taking position near by where he would be unobserved, he waited and watched.

At a quarter to 11 a man came down the street and without looking about him to see if he was watched was mak- ing straight for the rear door when a

hand was laid on his shoulder, and one in rough peasant garb covered him

witli a revolver. His captor led him to a short distance from the house, out 1dm into a carriage and the two were

driven to the private office of the chief of police. As soon as they were alone in the office Searoff threw off his peas- ant’s costume and revealed ids iden- tity.

"Valerlteh!” he exclaimed. The other stood mute. “I told my wife tonight that the hor-

ror of my career was never knowing when we must arrest some one we

know—some one dear to us. I'ut down the bomb.”

Valevitch, the brother of the princess, placed the box on a table. Sergius ap-

proached it and put his ear to it.

“Oh, heavens!” he exclaimed bitterly. "It is so. I hear the click of the clock- work that is to regulate the explosion. You, Valevitch, to lead your own sister

to the scaffold!” Valevitch stood meekly looking at the

prince with a peculiar expression: then he went to the box, drew a sliding cover and took out a clock of antique workmanship.

“What, the Ivan clock—the clock of the terrible czar which 1 have so long desired?”

“Yres. Marguerite has Intended a sur-

prise for you.” Scaroff stood astounded, a great re-

lief spreading over his face Then he took out his watch.

“Eleven five.” he said. “If you hur- t you'll not be far behind time. If

you tell Marguerite of this I’ll send you to Siberia.”

The next morning the prince at break- fast time, on seeing an antique clock on

the mantel, manifested the most de- monstrative surprise, and when told that it was a present to him from his wife embraced her with far more ten- derness than the occasion seemed to require. WESTCOTT ATWELL.

In the Brooklyn Eagle office Whit- man is a clearer memory than in the office of its contemporary. Vet it is oddly hard to secure facts. There is a

genera! and joking reference to his serenily as idleness. He was not a

typical newspaper man, for he was not to be pressed or hurried, and in our

day of precision and speed lie would have been impossible. He never felt that stress from which the veriest bo- hemian suffers. He did not want mon-

ey enough to work hard for It. One of the coterie of writers and actors which used to squander Its much wit and lit- tle wealth at PfafFs tells me that of the whole party Whitman was the only one who was never tipsy and never “broke.” lie always hud a market somewhere for fugitive writings. Edi- tors were friendly to 1dm. He drank his beer with the rest, hut its effect was to make him thoughtful, even sad, while the others were merry.

made needless delays in his repay ments.—Charles M. Sldnner in At Ian-' tic.

thoughtful too. Each of them has pick- ed out a wife for me; but, strange to say, not one of them mentioned you. Of course you won’t feel hurt if 1 add that there is a general and deep rooted im- pression among them that you are not half good enough for me. Sisters are

like that sometimes, you know.” The girl flushed hotly. “Not good enough!” she cried. “I’ll

show them. Consider my refusal with- drawn.”

And so she married the foxy fellow out of spite and made him very happy. —Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Hi* Estimate oi' Froude. Hannis Taylor, in liis argument be-

fore the Alaskan boundary commis- sion, told a stcry of Edward A. Free- man, the English historian, whom he knew well. On one occasion, when dining with him at a hotel in St. Louis, Mr. Taylor innocently asked him, “Mr. Freeman, what is your estimate of Froude as a historian?” Said Mr. Tay- lor: “He looked at me in a strange kind of way, and then he replied: ‘I will tell you what I think about Froude. If ever you read anything lie writes read it with care. Itead it over and over

again and fix it in your mind so that you will never forget it. for then you will know one thing for certain, and that is that by no possibility did it ever happen in that way.’

Tlie Red Lobster. The question is often asked, says the

Lancet, without a satisfactory answer

being supplied. Why do lobsters and certain shrimps and prawns turn red on boiling? One reason may be that the black pigment of the lobster is an

iron compound in the lower state of oxidation, which boiling oxidizes to

the higher state. Ited human hair is said to owe Its brilliance to iron exist-

ing in the higher oxidized state, and by means of reducing agents, such as

pyrognllie acid or nutgall, the color

may he modified. In short, oxygen is

a great painter and probably accounts for the beautiful autumnal tints of

plant life.

To Protect the President. (Kennebec Journal.)

One of the first bills introduced at the special session, and one which is receiving wide attention irom the press of the country, is that of Con- gressman Littlefield, of Maine, impos- ing the death-penalty for the crime of killing a President, vice-president, or

any ambassador, and for imposition of a fine and imprisonment for teaching anarchistic doctrines, and for con

spiring to kill the ruler of any foreign country.

The new law which this bill proposes is in line with the recommendation made by President Roosevelt in his message’ to the fifty-seventh Con- gress. A similar bill was introduced at the last session, but constitutional lawyers in the Senate got to wrang- ling over some of the details of its provisions with the result that it was side tracked instead of being passed as it should have been.

It was a delicate matter for Presi- dent Roosevelt to recommend such a

law, because a certaiu class of his en-

emies would seek to make capital out of it by asserting that be whs afraid of his life, and desired a body guard. But the American people generally are anxioUB for every possible protec- tion that can be given our President, and those in line of succession to the presidency, and that there may be no

possible loophole of escape tor the murderers of a President, or for those who spread the poison of anarchistic doctrines.

Three times within the memory of man the ruler of ttiis free country has been stricken down in death by the hand of an assassin, a record unparal leled in any other country on the earth. Congress should leave nothing undone which will tend to prevent another such terrible calamity from falling upon our country.

As u is now, the murderer of a Pres- ident or an anarchistic agitator is sub ject only to the laws of the state In which the crime is committed. Thus, if President McKinley bad been mur

dered In Maine, instead ot New York, his assassin couid not have been put to death but would have been sent lo Thomaston for life. Ail that tbe new law proposes is that the killing of a

President shall be made punishaole by- death by tbe laws of tbe Unhid States.

This will make the crime friable in tbe federal courts and wiil take such a matter wholly out oi the bands of the local and slate authorities. Surely there should be a law applicable throughout the entire country impos ing the severest penalty known in civ- ilized society for the murderer of a President, it is hard to see how there can be any opposition to Mr. Little- field’s bill in Congress.

It cannot too soon become a law.

Cuba as a State? A joint resolution lias been intor-

duced in the Senate Inviting Cuba to

join the American union as a state.

Senator Newlauds, of Nevada, is the author of the resolution, which pro- vides further that Porto Kico shall be- come a county of the state of Cuba, and that the president and vice-presi- dent of the republic shall become the

governor and lieutenant-governor, and that the new loan wiiich Cuba is about to make, shall be raised by is-

suing state bonds. The advantages to Cuba of joining

the union, as pointed out by Senator

Newiands, are that she would have free trade with this country, and that the receipts from her exports would be nearly doubled. She is now offer-

ing $33,000,000 of bonds at 5 per cent,

at 90, and fiuds difficulty in getting buyers. If they were state bonds, guaranteed by the United States, she could sell them easily at 3 per cent.

Mr. Newiands says that the present is a good time to make Cuba the offer, as the condition of the island is being discussed by Congress, and that we

should make it plain to her that we

invite her to join us on absolute equal- ity, as a state. It would be union rather than annexation, and'she would be one of us, and not subject to us.

He believes that the people of both

countries will realize that the argu- ment for union is irresistible. Texas

might be cited as a precedent.

Senator Ne wlands’ invitation to Cuba to join the Union was opposed by Sen- ators Lodge, Hale and O. H. Platt, who

poiuted out, in the debate, that such an invitation would be looked upon as a command, that it would expose this country to the suspicion of desir-

ing to annex Latin-American terri-

tory, and that it would weaken the hands of the present administration of Cuba, under which the island has

enjoyed such remarkable prosperity. Many interesting and important points were brought out in the dis- cussion. Senator Hale said that he believed that the men who were

listening to him would live to see

Canada and the Uni'ed States united. Senator Lodge expressed the same

sentiment, by saying he hoped all the

European flags on this continent would return to Europe as did Spain’s. Senator Piatt, of Connecticut, the au-

thor of the Platt amendment, de- clared that this government exercised no protectorate over Cuba, and that Cuba was not our ward. Quoting McKinley, he said: “We are neigh- bors, we must be close friends.” Senator Teller said that without en-

tering into the debate, he wished to

state positively that Cuba was in no

way a dependency of the United

States, and that any international

lawyer would declare such a conten- tion ridiculous.

The annual report of the governor of Hawaii has been received by the

secretary of the interior. It shows that there has been an increase in commerce in the territory, advises that a limited immigration of Chinese be allowed, and recommends a slight duty on coffee to protect the native

planter who is unable to compete with the foreign importers. The

population of the territory is com-

posed of Hawaiian, Portuguese, Jap- anese, Chinese, Scandinavian, Span- ish, British, German and American. There are many marriages between Hawaiian women and white men and a few between Hawaiian women and Chinamen. The offspring of both classes of marriages seem to be an

improvement on the pure Hawaiian. Unless theie is an increased immigra- tion from America, there is grave danger that owing to the numerical

inferiority of Anglo Saxons, the is- lands wiii come under the complete control of the Oriental races. The

public schools have done more than

auything else to lessen race prejudice in the territory, and the mixed popu- lation seems to get on well together. Under the recent militia law passed by Congress, the Uawaiians have uu

dertaken to build up a strong and efficient national guard.

Dr. A. C Ilagertby, mayor of Ells-

worth, authorizes the announcement

of his candidacy for the republican nomination for representative to the next legislature from this city. Dr.

Hagerthy is one of the best known

pbjsiciiius in Hanco*ck county. Be- sides achieving success in his vocation, his advocations are many and success-

ful. He is a large land-owner, is in- terested in several important manu-

facturing plants, and is probably the

lirgest individual bolder of residence

property in the county. Until he en-

tered the local field last spring, he had never taken part in politics. In his first battle with his democrat friends, he put them to rout in a manner

that utterly dazed them.

The politicians of Illinois, who have been booming Speaker Cannon for the vice* presidential nomination, have received a setback by a state-

ment issued by tbe speaker’s secre-

tary, which says: “As speaker of the House the full mead of his ambition, so far as public office is concerned, is satisfied. Even if he would be an

available candidate, his nomination is not to be thought of for a moment.” He added that the speaker had no

desire for the place now occupied by Senator Frye, president pro tern, of the Senate.

The treaty ceding the Isle of Pines to Cuba has been ratified by the Sen- ate. The treaty of Paris left this island for future determination as to

its ownership. In return for naval and coaling stations in Cuba, the United States government confirms the title of the insular republic to the Isle of Pines.

Caucer Cured by Radium. That remarkable new metal, radium,

has scored another victory, if w« are lo

credit tbe reports that it ha been suc-

cessfully u-ted to cauterize malignant growths, says Success. It has been known since the discovery of this sub- stance that the emanations from it, like the X-rays, are able to inflict a serious burn.

This according to a receut medical writer on tbe subject, is because Us rays interfere with the action of certain nerves, and apparently its ability to cause can- cerous growths to disappear Is due to action of a similar kind, since maiignaut growths are now supposed to be con- trolled lu some way by influences trans- mitted from the central nervous system. At present tbe high price of the radio- active substances prevents general ex-

periment along this line, and it is to be hoped that the cost of production may soon be lessened by the discovery of new ores and of simpler methods of extraction.

The first pig story to reach the gossip- er came from G. t?. r;Uook. He has re

One of the doctors of West FrAnklin, who was making a free vaccination tour, called at a house and Inquired of the lady in charge if she wished to be vaccinated, tv hereupon she replied: “No, I was vacci- nated forty years ago, and it did not take until two years ngo. I think that I am

fully protected against smallpox.”

The American is in receipt of a pam- phlet from Porto Rico with the compli- ments of Everett W. Lord, acting commis- sioner of education. Ilia entitled: Ejer- cicios para ia celebracion del dia del arbol; one chapter 1* addressed: “A los manatroa

de las escueias publics* de Puerto Rico.” This chapter ia evidently written by Mr. Lord, and closes aa follows: “Descendo que Vd. obtengs un exito complete en la del corrtente ano, me repito de Vd.” Just think of an Ellsworth boy,ex high school

teacher, ex-superintendent of schools, etc„ etc., writing eucb lingo as that, and

expecting us to understand it!

The many friends of Mrs. Rebecca S. Warren, of South Deer Isle, will learn with regret of her death at tbe Maine general hospital in Portland, Nov. 24, where she was under treatment. Mrs. Warren has, for many years, been The American’s correspondent from that

town, and many an article over the

signature of “Ego” has held the attention of our readers. Mrs. Warren was a promi- nent worker in the Hanco*ck county W. C. T. U., and will be sorely missed by the White Ribbouers. During her connection with Thh American she has made many friends, and her articles were always read with interest. Ail readers of The American will join us in extending sympathy to her family in this their time of bereavement._

The skating season is now on, and many a boy—aud some men—may be seen stroll- ing along in the moonlight with his best

girl, going to some pond or river to while away an hour or so in this popular sport. The height of many a boy’s sporting ambition is to get on bis knees on the cold, cold ice and strap on the skates of the best-looking girl in tbe bunch; but when said girl gets up aud skates off with one of tbe young meu wno has stood by looking on, tbe boy on his knees wish's the ice might break under him aud let him into the chilly water. The ice will 1

not break, however, and the boy gets up, grabs a polo club and starts ofi to get Into a game. He watches for a chance as a cat watches a mouse, aud when tbe little -phere rolls up in front of his rival, the

boy makes an attempt to bit the bail, but, 1

m I j u 4 g i:: g tbe distance, takes his rival in I the shins and lays him up for repslra. i The boy then takes his girl and away they ; go as happy as you please.

Hanco*ck county certainty has its share 1

of smart old ladies. Hardly a week parses but reports reach the editor’s desk telling of the doings of some woman who has reached and passed the allotted three ! score and ten. This week the report i comes from Cranberry Isles—one of tbe


many islands lying off Mt. Desert-and tbe lady is Mrs. Annie Feruald, eighty- seven years old, who resides with Ler daughter, Mrs. Kimball Stanley.

W tn u she is not assisting her daughter with her house I od tl title* she may bo found In* the corner or about the tire v\itn her '■

OppO^s Making Culm a State—Pre- (lictu that Canada will .Jola U. 8. Inaccurate reports of wbnt Senator Ha e

said o»« Nov. 23, when addressing the Sen- ate on tko Newiands resolution (Inviting Cuba to become «* slate of the American Union) have led to totne curious coni*

inents. For the ben?fit, therefore, of Thk

AMERICANS readers, lua remarks are

given in full below. Mr. Hale bad moved to reconsider the vote of the Senate by which the joint resolution invitii g Cuba to become a state bad been referred to the committee on relations with Cuba, and

spoke as followa: Mr. President, 1 shall take only a title time of

the Seoale, l»ut i <le«tre to submit a few ubser vatlons upon this resolution.

The experiment of self-government upon this continent In the couutrb* lying south of us

has not always had the happiest results and has hien none too successful; hut wherever It has Deen attempted It has been the pulley of the United States to encourage such self.govern ment, to support It, and wherever U has been

practicable to lend It a helping hand That ex

perl ment has been now going on for three years or more upon the Ulaud of Cuba, At the end of the war the Island lay at our racrey. By mill, tary conquest we had possessed ourselves of it. Had we determined to hold It under any form of colonial vassalage, no power in the world would have sought lo Interpose.

Hut, Mr. President, the war had been entered

upon under the limitation which In its declara- tion, at the Instance of the senator from Colo- rado fMr. Teller], had affirmed In the most solemn urnte that it was not to be waged for

conquest, and that so far as cubit was concerned the war did not should not luvoive the seizure of that island as a part of the United States. I do not quote the language of the Teller amendment, but that vras its purport. The purpose of the war as Indicated by Us declaration and the proposition of the senator from Colorado waa clear ami has been faith fully adbeied to.

The inland was !u many respects a desolate waste at the end of the war. It had been har- ried from one side to the other by lu^urri-ction, by transitory as well as regular military forces, and conflicts hardly amounting to battles, but involving all the wasteful results of actual war, ha<l devastated and brought rulo to a consider able part of Cuba

These conflicts had lift their mark and band

upon the island, and it was no light task that the patriotic men in Culm undertook when they eet up a free government and established and sent to the breeze tho fl »g of a new republic. 1 am glad to say that they dbl it, so far ne we

are concerned, without let or hiudranee on our

part Piactlcally every soldier was withdrawn, every insignia of military possession dtsap pea red, and we bade the Cubans god speed in thefr experiment of setting up an Independent republic, a, free ua ion, self government, for themselves.

I have been Impressed, Mr. President, thus far with the success of,this movement I have been agreeably disappointed In the evidence of that patience and self control and sound sense

and good management that have been rought out ny the Caban p ople bringing In this new

abler In the family of republics. No man who ha-* vi-lted Cuba can have failed to see there improvement in condition* that are not only gratifying but remarkable in their extent.

must negotiate bonds at a disastrous rate of discount In order that hereafter on a annexa lion Fcheme the United States sha.l assume tiie bonds at par. and the Texas bonds performance of a half century ago repeated, not to our credit —all of these, Mr. President, aie behind thl- re solution.

1 do not say that*the senator from Nevada has any onnecilon with any of these sublet-,; be presumably has not. Some of us know him and appreciate his hoi orable record. But whether he knows It or not all of these Influ- ences that are hostile to Cuba and to the present government of Cuba are commendatory of his resolution.

Moreover, Mr. President, there Is something I may say, shabby In annoying and embarrass- ing a new and struggling republic. The sen- ator will say that this Is only an Invitation to Cuba to become a memtier ,of this great re. public, with provisions In detail to cover the whole subject. But, Mr. President, wo do not send out Invitations to Join this country to great and powerful peoples. This great repub. lie that has become —

This <epubllc, that has become a great power In the world, ought to bo doing something be- sides Interfering with new and emergent and strugglli.g repuidles. Take tho case of Can. ada. I have little doubt that men here now Ms- tenlng to me will see the time when Canada will income a part—an Integral part—of the United -States. If bis plan Is curiiei out by the most adventurous of itritlsh politicians of colonial preference, a tariff war will be inaugurated be- tween Great Britain and the United States, and this English politician will seek to fet Canada up as a great rival to us, an agricultural rival. Out of that, Mr. President, will arise condi- tions, discussions, and considerations that will end in the union of the two peoples. But we do t ot Invito Great Britain to send Canada to us and join the Uulon. She Is too large a

power. Take Mexico. Plenty of people think that

the whole or a part of Mexico ought to be a

part of the United States, e^p.'daily tho north- ern states of that republic. But we do not in- vlio Mexico. What do senators think woul I he the reply of that great chieftain whose power over his people is as absolute as ever was that of Peter or Frederlck or the great English Pro- lector. If we should invite Mexico to join this republic? It would bo the same reply that would come from the foreign ofllce in Great Britain, In stern tones, too: “Mind your own business."

Therefore I object, with all these influences barking nt the heels of the new republic, to Congress In any way committing Itself to any proposition that *-hall Interfere with the honest, patriotic men who are engage'! In conducting a

1831—$90,000 IN STOCK


Fir© totally destroyed the plant of the

Hanco*ck Leather Co. at Amherst Monday night bet ween 11 and 12 o’clock. Loan about 1100.000.

The fire i-trrted in the leach room

apparently from an endless chain. When it was discovered it had gained Bucb head

way that the small fores pump—the only apparatus on the ground—was unable to

cope with the dames, which spread with

great rapidity. Everything except the

boiler bouse and an old saw mill was

burned Hat to the ground. What brings the loss up to such a

high figure is the large amount of stock

the company had on hand—about £90,000 of leather. On the stock there was £40,- 000 insurance, and £12,000 on the build- ings.

At the time of the fire the company had bark enough on hand to keep the tan- nery running for the next fifteen years.

TANNERY BUILT IN 1831. This tannery was tbe oldest one in the

State and probably tbe oldest one in th^

country. It was built in 1831. In 1841 Charles O. Fanning bought the property and operated it.

Fourteen years later the tannery was

taken over by A. Hr Buzzeil who, with his son Oliver, carried on the business for a

long term of years. During that time tbe

tannery was enlarged and the output in- creased to such sn extent as to make it a

thriving industry. In 1891 James Rice, of Bangor, bought

an Interest in the business and worked with the Buzzells until 1898 when the laiter retired.

Upon the retirement of Buzzeil a stock

company was formed under the name of the Hanco*ck Leather Co., Mr. Rice taking his sons into the business, and since that time the tannery has been operated under that name.


Since tbe lime the tannery was built in 1831 it lias not been closed down but once

In its long career of seveuty*two years, audtheu only for the short period of three weeks.

It employed about thirty hands, and at the time of tbe burning bad several men

and teams iu the woods getting out bark. It bas not been decided whether or not the company will rebuild.



Destroys Dwelling and Two Stables— Loss Estimated at $12,000.

Fire destroyed tbe dwelling and stable of Mrs. Joseph Corson and the* livery stable of Edwin S. Atwood early Saturday morning. The property loss is estimated at £12,000.

The tiro was discovered by Mrs. Corson about 3 a. ni., she being awakened by tbe noise made by the cattle and borse-i con-

fined iu her stable. Investigation showed that h"»r stable wa.j alt ablazs, also the

livery stable of Mr. Atwood, which ad-

joined her buildings. The Atwood stabies were closed for the

winter and contained only harnesses and

carriages. Nothing was saved from this stuble.

The Corson property constated of a

large livery stable and carriage shed and

a dwelling, lu the stable were several

horses and cattle, but these were safely got out. The remainder of the contents

of theBtabie was burned. Atwood’s loss is estimated at $6,000,

covered by insurance. The Corson loss la

about $5 000, also insured. The tire apparently originated In the

Corson stable and communicated to the

Atwood stable. The cause of the tire is

unknown. The Atwood stable was a new building,

only *>ein£ completed iu time for the past season’s business.

If it ha 1 not teen for the efficient ser-

vice of the fire department, there is no

telling where the flames would have

stopped, as the buildings were centrally located and surrounded by several wooden



By the Governor after Serving Fifteen Years in State Prison.

Charles Moore, aged forty-two, was

pardoned by the governor and council

last week after serving fifteen years in the

State prison at Thomastoo for breaking and entering and assault with intent to

kill. Since he was sent to prison Moore has

twicj attempted to escape, but both times

has been unsuccessful. The first attempt Moore made a dress from pieces of cloth

obtained from the harness room and in-

tended to get away with the annual ex-

cursion party. His dress was f£und be-

fore the event took place. The second attempt was made two years

a »o. This time he tiled away the bars of

his cell and replaced them by wooden

ones, which the officers claim as excellent

imitations. He gained an entrance to the

chapel and filed out the bars here only to

find that his rope was not near long enough.

The officers learned of his escape and

hunted all day for him before finding him

under the platform of the chapel. Owing to these two attempts at escape

Moore would have had to serve his whole

term if he bad not been pardoned: He

has left Maine for New York where his

father lives.

“Aren’t you attending Mr. Sharp aDy more?” inquired the wife of Dr. Price- Price. “No,” replied the doctor, “I can’t make anything out of the case at all. “Why, I thought you diagnosed it as a

simple cold.” “That’s what it is. That’s

why 1 can’t make anything out of it.”


Special Town Meeting—Thanksgiving Day Observances.

Bar Harbor, Dec 1 (-p ctal)—A spec- ial meeting of the town of Eden whs held >t the municipal court room at Bar Har- bor Friday morning, the resut of which will be that before very long Bar Harbor will hav** a government posfcofflje build- ing suitable for its needs.

The meeting was called

“To see if the town will vote to accept the report of the selectmen uti a town way hs laid out by them,. beginning at a point In Cottage street, near J. A. Rudlck'a store, and running in a northerly direction to land of Thomas Searles; thence westerly to land of A. H. Lynam; thence southerly to sal Cottage street."

Tbe meeting was called to order by Town Cleric W. H. Hbermau and Charles F. Paine, town treasurer, was elected moderator.

On motion of A. Stroud Rodick it was

voted that the report of the selectmen in laying out tho wav described »iu article 2 (as above) be accepted and tuat the said

way be accepted. The meeting was very brief, pr bably as short as any ever held in the town. Not more than five or six minutes were required for the proceed- ings from start to fiuish.

Fora number of years the buildings used as a postoffice have been far from

adequate for the large amount of postal business doue here, and theie is an imper- ative demand for larger quarters, which can be properly provided only by a good government building.

The town has been trying for a number of years to get a government post office

building, and its hopes are now in a fair

way of t:eing realized. At the session of Congress in 1901 02

|6,000 was appropriated to purchase a lot of laud here for a postoffice, and at last

year’s session an additional sum of $6 000 was appropriated for the same purpose.

The government then called for pro- posals for laud to be sold to t be govern- ment at a price not to exceed f12 000.

Government officials were sent here to look over lots which were offered, and after due consideration decided up in the J. A. Rodick lot on Cottage street, pro- vided certain conditions which the gov- ernment insisted upon were met. The chief of these was that a town road, thirty feet wide, be built around three sides of the lot which fronted on Cottage street.

This road was laid out by the se ectmen and the town accepted it Friday at the

special meeting, thus removing the only obstacle in the way of the sale of the lot to the government.

Only a few' formalities are needed to

complete the sale, and the papers will be passed within a few days.

The lot is owned by J. A. Rodick and is

very centrally located near the business

part of the town and only about two minutes’ walk from the present postoffice.

It is 125 feet on Cottage street and 130 feet deep. The price to be paid is |12 000. The Birch Tree inn occupies the site at

present and the work of removing or tear-

ing down the hotel will begin soon.

It is expected that an appropriation will be made at this session of Cougress for the erection of the postoffice building.

Thanksgiving services were held at the

Congregational and Episcopal churches

Thursday. Two services were held at the

Episcopal church, one at 7 30 a. m. at

which the holy communion was celt

brated, and morning prayer with a brief address by the rector, Rev. Stephen H.

Green, at 10 a. m.

Tbe service at the Congregational church Thanksgiving evening was a

un on service of the Congregational, Methodist and Baptist churches.

The sermon was delivered by Rev. Angus M. MacDonald, pastor of the Con-

gregational church, who chose for his

text, “Whatsoever a man soweth that

shall he also reap.”

Thanksgiving night there was an ex-

hibition of moving pictures at Music hall

by the Keith Moviug Picture Co., under

the management of C. E. Lindall. Dur-

ing the evening Miss Alice McFarland, a

pupil of Mr. Lindall, made her first ap-

pearance as a cornet soloist, aud illus-

trated songs were sung by J. Frauklid Anthony.

A thanksgiving ball was given at the

Casino. Refreshments were served by the

ladies’ pid society.

Arrangements are being made for a

course of five piano recitals to be given during the winter at the choir room of

St Saviour’s church by Maurice C. Ram-

sey, assisted by prominent Maine soloists. The first recital will be given Monday

evening, Dec. 14, and the other dates are

Jan. 11, Feb. 15, April 4 aud May 2. Mr.

recitals are Miss Mabelle Monaghan, soprano, of Ellsworth; Francis Welch, v olinist, of Portland; Miss France* M, Drinkwater, contralto, of Bangor; Millard Bowdoin, baritone, of Portland ; Roland Sawyer, ’cellist, of Bangor.

Bar Harbor hunters continue to return

bringing in most cases all the big game the law allows.

William Feunelly, Charles H. Wood aud Fletcher T. Wood came Saturday from Ox Bow, iu Aroostook county with two deer apiece. Aaron Bunker got back Monday from a few days’ bunting at

Great Pond with two deer and a bear, while William R. Jordan returned Sunday with one deer.


James Emery, of tbe junior class at

Bowdolu, and Walter Llnscott, a Benior at

Coburn classical Institute, spent Thanks-

giving with tbeir parents in Bar Harbor.

Catarrh Is a discharge from the mucous mem- brane of the nose, throat, stomach, bowels etc., when kept in a state of inflammation by an impure condition of tiie blood and a want of tone in the system.

Soothe the inflamed membrane, strengthen the weakened system, ana the discharge will stop —to do this purify the blood. “I was troubled with catarrh for years

and trbd various remedies but found noth- ing that would cure me. I then resolved to try Hood’s Sarsaparilla and took four bottles which entirely cured me. I hay* never been troubled with catarrh since. As a blood purifier I can find nothing else equal to Hood’s Sarsaparilla.” William Shkbmar, 1030 6th St., Milwaukee, Wis.

Power of the I nltrd Stale* Senate. The senate is today the most jiower-

ful single chamber in any legislative body in tlie world, but this power, which Is shown daily by the wide at- tention to all that is said and done in the senate of the United States, is not the product of selfish uml cunning usur-

pations on the part of an ambitious body. It is due to the original consti- tution of the senate, to the fact that the senate represents states, to the pow- ers conform! upon it at the outset by the makers of the constitution, to its permanency of organization and to the combination of legislative, executive and judicial functions which sets it apart from all other legislative bodies. Without the assent of the senate no

bill can become law. no office can be filled, no treaty ratified.—Henry Cabot Lodge in Scribner's.

A ItuMint'MM I'm-nution. A caller at the.Aoarding house of

Mrs. Irons was surprised to see a line

greyhound basking in the sun outside the kitchen door. "I didn't know you hail a dog she said. "lie’s a beauti- ful animal. How long have you had him?"

"Two or three years." "How does it happen I have never

seen him in passing along here?" "We don't allow him to leave the

back yard." replied Mrs. Irons, with emphasis. "What kind of an adver- tisem*nt would it lie for a hoarding house to have a creature as lean as

that dog is standing round in front of it?”

Julcii Romance.

The story of Jules Verne's courtship and marriage Is a most romantic one.

Verne was u shy young fellow who had a great dislike to tlie society of wom-

en, and it was only his affection for his brother which led him to go to the latter’s wedding. Verne, however, ar-

rived too lute and found that the whole bridal party had left for the church with the exception of the bride's sister, a charming young widow, who explain- ed the matter. The friendship thus ac-

cidentally begun rapidly developed into

a warmer feeling and ended in a mar-

riage which may be described as ideal.

Interesting; Norwegian Custom.

Men attending state balls in Norway are not left in doubt ns to whether or

not the women can be counted on for

dancing. The custom of the court de-

crees that those women who intend to

dance shall wear white, while those

not desiring to trip the light fantastic

toe shall appear in black. It is an

idea which American men would like

to see adopted.

A Hard Problem.

A certain debating society is discuss-

ing the question as to which is the an-

grier—the husband who goes home and

finds that the dinner i9 not ready or

the wife who has dinner ready and

whose husband does not come home.

It is believed th&t the debate will end

in a draw.

Provoking;. “Yes, dear, he caught me in his

arms”— “How shocking!” —“and was just going to kiss me”—

“How awfully horrid!” _“when ilia came in the room.”

“Oh, how provoking!” A Little Glutton.

Papa—Tommy, you mustn’t eat so

much. Everybody will be calling you n

little “glutton.” Do you know what

that is? Tommy—I suppose it’s a big glutton s

[Original.] "] think.” said Mrs, Trotter, '‘that we

had better get some nice young girl to live with us. Not a boarder. Some one

who will be a member of the family, play a game of whist with us occasion- ally in the evening and make herself generally agreeable.”

“Where do you expect to find such a

person?” asked Mr. Trotter. “Leave that to me. We women know

women who know other women. I’ll ask my friends to help me.”

"I don’t approve of the plan,” said Mr. Trotter.

Mrs. Trotter, who was really looking to a slight addition to the income in- stead of companionship, would not give up her point, and her husband at last yielded. A young woman was found who wanted a home, and she wenf to live with the Trotters. She filled the bill completely, being kind hearted, cheerful, amiable and paid her “quota,” ns she had the consideration to call her board, regularly.

“I told you so,” said Mrs. Trotter to her husband. “You think you know more about domestic affairs than I. When a man leaves his business for the household he usually gets beyond his aeptn.

"Since you are satisfied.” said the husband, "I see no occasion to be dis- satisfied. Miss Smead seems jo be a

charming girl.” Months went by—months that bore

proof that Mrs. Trotter was right in the matter of Miss Smead. Several disagreeable episodes occurred, but nothing that could be even remotely traced to Miss Smead. One of these was a matter of business. One of Mr. Trotter’s creditors suddenly came down on him for the amount due him and when paid confessed that he had heard that his debtor was in straitened cir- c*mstances.

One morning when the postman de- livered the mail Miss Smead, who was

expecting a letter, was watching for him from the parlor window. Mr. Trotter left the house as the postman came up the front steps, and Miss Smead saw him hand Mr. Trotter a

letter. Furthermore, she was near

enough to see that the address was in a woman’s hand. Mr. Trotter thrust the letter in Ills coat pocket and spoke sharply to the postman, who evidently apologized for something and went on

to the next house. It was plain that Mr. Trotter was receiving mail that he hnd instructed the postman not to leave at the house, but Miss Smead was not the person to make trouble in a family, and the last tiling she would have thought of was revealing the mat- ter to Mrs. Trotter. Besides, Mrs. Trot- ter had a few days before presented her husband witli a daughter, and it would be cruelty and might be mur-

der for any one to excite any suspi- cions at such a time.

A few (lays later Miss Smead, wish- ing to borrow a pattern for a baby’s pinning blanket—for in her kindness of heart she was making clothes for the newcomer—went across the street to

Mrs. Prior, who lived directly opposite, to borrow one.

“Since you want the pattern for Mrs. Trotter.” said the lady, “you are wel- come to it, but that abominable Trot- ter should not have it on any account."

“What’s the matter with Mr. Trot- ter?”

“Matter? Matter enough. He's cor-

responding with some woman. Didn't I see him receive a letter from the post- man the other day, thrust it in his

pocket and scold the postman for de-

livering it at the house?” Miss Smead stood aghast. Mrs. Prior,

who had an object in view—to find out

if the missive were really from a wo-

man—went on: “You saw it yourself and were near

enough to sec that the address was in a woman’s hand.”

Miss Smead was tempted to deny the

fact, but hesitated. Hesitating, the se-

cret was lost, tlie information gained. Not long after this Mrs. Trotter re-

ceived an anonymous note in which the writer said. “You ought *o know

that your husband is corresponding secretly with a woman not his wife." Then there were tears and crimina- tions in the Trotter family. Mrs. Trot-

ter was still in a condition rendering such ail affair dangerous, and h»r hus- band found himself on the horns of s

dilemma, lie had been receiving let- ters concerning his wife’s mother, wlio was dying a lingering death, lie must now siiow tlie letters or virtually ad- mit that the charge was correct, tie

produced the letters. Mrs. Trotter stood the shock fairly well.

The matter was kept from Miss

Smead till Mrs. Prior had admitted that she was the author of the anony-

mous letter and hail gained tlie infer mation from Miss Snead. The Trot- ters also discovered that when M’.ss

Smead had come to live with them Mrs. Prior, seeing that they had “taken a hoarder," had inferred that they were iu straitened circ*mstances and had so informed tlie creditor who bad called for a settlement.

Tlie first intimation Miss Smead had of the trouble was a curt note from Mrs. Trotter requesting her to leave the house. The blow was somewhat mollified hy Mr. Trotter, who said to

her: “Y’ou are not to blame for tills, nor is

(iy wife. I alone am the culprit. Tt > a false principle for a family to have under their rooftree any one hut them-

selves. When my wife insisted on tak-

ing you In. 1 should have had the

strength of character to decline on this

ground. I regret that you us well as

we should have been a sufferer.” Miss Smead never ceased to feel the

wound, and Mrs. Trotter never ex-

onerated her from blame. GRACE A. HERSEY.

of the regular stopping places, the driv- er made up his mind he could stand it no longer. He got down from his sent and pommeled the conductor heartily j for two minutes. It refreshed him so

The Gardener In Old Home. He literally grew colonnades: he fash-

ioned obelisks of lx>x. cypress or Hex. He not only Pattered his lord and mas-

ter by Inscribing Ids name in odorifer- ous herbs or gorgeous flowers that star- tled the garden with occasional tours de force, but he actually trimmed trees into family portraits or even those of historical characters. He transformed bushes and thick foraged shrubs Into the fantastic likeness of ships, lions, bears and birds. And these rather de- generate "conceits” and extravagances met with profound appreciation and were rewarded with Increase of wages by the same individual who, having tired of mere gladiatorial fights with wild beasts In the Coliseum, only de- rived real thrills from such uncanny performances as fights between women

and dwarfs or women with each other. Pliny says the gardeners were the best paid of all workers.—Ct. Clair Badde- ley In Nineteenth Century.

It Went L'apnnlahed. This story is told of the late Dr. Hol-

land, better known as “Timothy Tit- comb.” During the service of one of the large churches in Springfield, Mass., a heavy electric storm came up, and one of the gentlemen of the choir set out to secure an omnibus to take the ladies home. Among the fair sing- ers was a certain Miss Etta S., and as

Dr. Holland was gallantly helping her into the vehicle a terrific clap of thun- der startled them, upon which he re-

marked, ‘Ett’ in terror packs home in a bus” (Et in terra pax hominibus). To close this strange tale it may he well to add that the doctor was not

immediately struck by lightning, but died years afterward peacefully in his bed.

Odd Thing*. The origin of the sentiment, “Old

wood to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, old authors to read,” is

somewhat obscured. Bacon found that Alonso of Aragon was wont to say in commendation of age that age ap- peared to be best in these four things. John Webster (1038) went further in

declaring, “Old wine wliolesomest. old pippins toothsomest,” and that “old wood burns brightest, old linen washes whitest.” Goldsmith in “She Stoops to

Conquer” says. “Old friends, old times, old manners, old books, old wine.” There are many variant.quotations.

Made tin* Cannon Dull* Fit. The first battle of the war of 1812

was fought at Socket's Harbor, July 9, 1812, and consisted of an attack made upon the village. The inhabitants bad but one gun of sufficient size and strength to inflict damage, a 32 pound- er, for which they had no shot. This difficulty w-s overcome by the patriot- ism of the housewives, who tore up carpets from the floors and with strips wound the small balls to fit the can-


Shooting Crocodile* liy Lamplight. In the West Indies crocodiles are of-

ten shot at night. The hunter, with a

lantern, sits in a canoe In one of the creeks which the crocodiles infest. The crocodiles n-,<» attracted by the light and swim toward the canoe. Their eyes shine out in the darkness and form good targets for the hunter’s bullets. Sometimes a dozen crocodiles ure shot in a night.

Poetry. “Are you foml of poetry?” asked the

young man with curly hair. “Yes,” answered Mias Cayenne; “po-

etry has done a great deal to make life easier. It gives people an opportunity to use quotations instead of being orig- inal and tiresome.”—Exchange.

An Economical Wife. He—I can't send my clothes to the

tailor’s every time they need a button. We must economize. Can’t you sew

on these suspender buttons yourself? She—Here, my clear; fasten them up

I Captain tJak-ilctu'* Cheer*.

A series of B. volution ry scenes

| were given in a London theat t some ! months after the close < f that memor-

able war. On the on kale w * the English army In full ral eoui.d uni- form, with every button in its exact place. Opposite them was the Ameri- can army, composed, as the tin ater bill slated* of “artisans, cobblers and tinkers,” arrayed in their working dress, with buttons of every size and hue.

When the curtain dropped. Captain Bartlett of Plymouth, Mass the cap- tuin of a ship then in port, stood up in his seat in the pit and in a voice as if given from a quarter deck in a squall culled,. “Three cheers for the artisans, cobblers and tinkers who were too much for King George and his red- coats.” and with n wave of Ids hat lie gave these with a will. For a short time there was silence in the theater, followed by an enthusiastic, John Bull, appreciative cheer for the pluck and assurance of the Yankee captain, who became the lion of the city, receiving invitations to clubs and to theatrical and other entertainments while lie remained in port.—Boston Transcript.

A Legend off Kantacket. About Vineyard sound there are nu-

merous legends of a famous Indian giant. It is said that the rocks at Sea- connet are the remains of his wife, whom he threw into the sea there. He turned his children into fishes and emp- tying out his pipe one day formed Nan- tucket out of its ashes. This latter story of Nantucket’s source must ac-

count likewise for the well know rv story of that-old Nantucket captain who was

accustomed to make his reckonings by tasting the earth brought up on sound- ing. One day the lead was dipped in some earth brought on board ship from the island, and the captain, after tast- ing, leaped from his berth in great excitement, exclaiming, “Nantucket’s sunk, and here we are right over old Marm Hackett’s garden!” Naturally he w’ould recognize the taste of tobacco ashes.


T i rac^sl ttiefes t. The Testimony of Ellsworth People

Stands the Test. The test of time is what tells the tale. “A new broom sweeps clean,” but will

it wear well is what interests most. The public 80011 find out when misrepresenta- tions are made, and merit alone will stand the test of time. Ellsworth people appre- ciate merit and many months ago local citizens publicly endorsed Doan’s Kidney Pills; they do so still. Would a citizen make the statement which follows unless convinced that the article was just as rep- resented? A cure that lasts is the kind tha* every sufferer from kidney ills is looking for.

John Drake, retired, residence Grant St., says: ‘‘I have had slight attacks of backache since the winter of 1897, when Dorn’s Kidney Pills procured at Wiggin & Moore’s drug store stopped a very aggra vated spell. Kidney complaint came on me

slowly until the aching became very severe

and each successive attack of much loDger duration. When Doan’s Kidney Pills

stopped that particular attack in the win- ter of 1897, 1 publicly recommended them

through our Ellsworth papers, and I have had no reason to alter my opinion since, because when 1 have noticed tt»e slightest symptom of a recurrence I always appealed to the remedy and on each and every oc

caHion the appeal has never been in vain- I have recommended Doan’s Kidney Pills to more than one resident, one in particu- lar, Mr. William Laffin, who u«ed them and told me afterwards that they had cer-

tainly done him a great deal of goud. I never lose an opportunity to recommend this remedy to those I hear complaining about their back or kidneys.”

Ellsworth, Maine

&>e EX-HERO “CcutUnien," s.iul tie general—he

ts« chatting familiarly with his staff during- a cessation of hostilities—"what we call bravery is purely physical. Real bravery consists not in lighting *n enemy, bnt ourselves. Cowardice or

bravery is purely a matter of tempo- rary nerves.”

•'Nevertheless, general." saiil young Captain Fitz Hugh, “we honor the brave and despise the coward. When my nerves go back on me I trust

enough vigor will be left to enable me

to remove myself from the world of my disgrace.”

A puff of smoke appeared at one of j the embrasures of a bastion fort on | tbe crest cf a hill, followed by a Ikkiiu, j and a shell came plowing up the ! ground, burying itself in a tree not a

dozen feet from tbe party. A fuse hiss- j ed and sputtered, burning rapidly to j the vent. Most of the officers present j either fell on their faces or ran as fast ! as thetr legs could carry them. Fitz Hugh coolly walked np to the shell, pulled out the fuse and throw it away.

"Well done, captain,” said the gen- eral. "The battle bas reopened.”

There was a hard struggle. When the fighting was over, there was as much wonder that the young captain came

out alive as at his conspicuous bravery. One of bis exploits, tbe leading of a

few men against an ogle of breast- [ works wherein tbe guns were creating havoc, was so conspicuous and so far reaching in its results that he was

decorated wits a gold medal. The war ended and Fit* Hugh was !

a hero to the world for all time. Oe- | casionally he would overhear some

one say: “That's he; the man over

there. They say he doesn't know what fear is.” At army reunions, when he arose to say a few words, he was so

violently cheered that he often gave np I the attempt. He was the pet of the petticoats and the admiration of men. The world of adulation in which he lived became the only world he knew, that which he had inhabited before his honors being forgotten. Yet his mod- esty never suffered. He would only wear his medal at social gatherings with the little baud who had helped him earn it and to whom ho always in- sisted it belonged.

Thirty years passed. Fitz Hugh mot with reverses that brought on nervous

prostration. He was obliged to break away and go on a trip. When he re-

turned be was still weak, melancholy j and inclined to study his symptoms j minutely, consulting doctors, besides j doctoring himself, no recovered, bnt was not the man he had been a few years before.

One day while be was at the seashore with a party of friends, among whom was a lady who had consented to be a

comfort to the old hero for the rest of j Ills days, he was walking with her i through the town when a rough fellow i passed them. purposely brushing against the lady. Fitz Hugh reuion- j strated. whereupon the man took him | by the collar and shoved him up | against a wall, where he held him for some time, then released him with the remark that next time he'd better mind his own business. Fitz Hugh, mortified beyond measure at such treat-

ment, tried to muster up courage to strike the man. but his enemy looked so ugly, so strong, so brutal, so unmer-

ciful, that the ex-hero did not dare j touch him.

That night, when all were asleep, ! Fit* Hugh, clutching something tightly i in his hand, emerged from his room I and went to an ocean pier. There he stood for awhile, looking out on the | black expanse of water, vainly endeav- oring to muster strength of will to ! plunge. He could not. The waves fill- 1 ed him with terror. Then he threw what he held in his hand out Into the water and, turning, went to his room.

The next day he did not appear. His fiancee sent for him to go down with her to th“ beach. He went down looking pale and haggard. She guess- ed his trouble, but said nothing. They were sitting on the beach, lower than they were accustomed to do. for the tide was out, looking at the bathers, the gulls, the waves glittering in the sunshine, the ships far out at sea. The lady was thrusting her hand into the sand, grasping it and letting it slip through her fingers. Suddenly they closed on something round and flat and heavy.

It was the hero's medal. He confessed to her that he had

thrown it into the water the night be- fore, and she knew why. "It is better to have been brave,” she

said, “and lost one's bravery than never to have been brave at all.”

When the ex-hero returned to the city he married his fiancee and settled himself in a home, which he resolutely declined to leave, eschewing especially army reunions. One reunion night his comrades came and took him away bodily, his xvife before he left pinning his medal to his coat without Ills knowing it. Arriving at the room

where a dinner was in progress, he was placed amid cheers in the seat of the commander-president.

"Comrades.” he said when the tu- mult had ceased, “my general once

told me that bravery Is purely phys- ical. I have learned he was right. I have been weak enough to think my- self wbat you think me—a hero. 1 apt ! — hero and never have beep one.” 1

»»e words, attributed to modesty, drew forth a burst of applause. ’The captain dropped his eyes and for the first time discovered the medal on his breast. Again lie glanced at his com-

rades with a morti fil'd expression that told the story of its having been placed there surreptitiously.

Then there was a tumult that rivaled the din of battle. t

Sourer* of Color. An interesting enumeration has been

given of the sources of color. From this it appears that the cochineal in- sects furnish the gorgeous carmine, crimson, scarlet carmine and purple lakes; the octopus gives sepia- that is. the inky Uuid which the creature dis- charges in order to render the water opaque when attacked; the Indian yel- low comes from the camel; ivory chips produce the ivory black and bone black;' the exquisite Prussian blue comes from fusing horses’ hoofs anil pigs’ blood; blue black comes from the charcoal of, the vine stock; Turkey red is made from the madder plant, which grows In Hindoostan; the yellow sap of a Sia- mese tree produces gamboge; raw sien- na is the natural earth from the neigh-* borhood of Siena, Italy; raw umber Is an earth found near Umbria; Indian ink is made from burned camphor; mastic is made from the gum of the mastic tree, which grows in the Gre- cian archipelago; bistre is the soot of wood ashes; very little ultramarine, ob- tained from the precious lapis lazuli, is found in the market.

Getting Rid of the Acid. An exploring expedition in a remote

part of China had a queer experience, which one of the party thus relates: "A large bottle of carbolic acid had been broken inside its wooden case. We ex- hausted our ingenuity in hopeless ef-. fort to unscrew the cover. We feared to carry it farther, as the burning tears distilled by It destroyed everything they touched. We dared not throw it aside lest the unsophisticated heathen should drink it as a cheering or me-

dicinal beverage. We had no time to wait and empty it, as the fatal fluid would only trickle drop by drop through a chink which had been cautiously and laboriously excavated with a blunt hunting knife. What wen- we to do? Degrading as the confession must ap- pear, we had to deposit the torpedo in the middle of Jhe yard and throw bricks at it until it was smashed.”

Opal* of Varloom Deicreea. There are several varieties of opals

and therefore several degrees of merit. The precious or noble or oriental opal is the supreme. This has all the col- ors, and when these colors are broken into spangles it is then called the harlequin opal. Then comes the tire opal, or girasole, with hyacinth red and yellow’ reflection. The former comes from Hungary and the latter from Mexico. The common, or semi- opals, are nonopalescent. The hydro- phone, or oculus mundi, is nontrans-

parent, but liecomes so by immersion in water or any transparent fluid. The cachalong is nearly opaque and of a

bluish white color. The hyalite is colorless, pellucid and white. The opal jasper, or wood opal, is the petrifaction of wood, opalescent, but without the coloring which makes the "noble” gem so precious.

Japanese Pastime*. In Japan to get up parties to behold

the freshly fallen snow or the cherry blossoms or the maple trees In their autumnal glory or to go to the flower shows Is as de rigueur as are our din- ners. cotillons and theater parties. Mushroom hunting is a fashionable pastime, while in the house harp play- ing, verse writing, embroidering and tea drinking nre the most absorbing occupations. The most pretentious en-

tertainment is the tea ceremony. It is

very formal, and there is much elab- orate performance connected with it difficult for a foreigner to comprehend. —Good Housekeeping.

Gum Chevriug. “To obew gum for five or ten min-

utes after a meal is absolutely bene- ficial,” said a physician, “especially for hasty eaters, who do not half masti- cate their food, because the action of the jaws causes the gastric juices to flow, and that is good. But so few people can use and not abuse it. They get the gum in their mouths and keep at it till they fairly dry up the saliva supply, bring on a headache and get generally nervous. This will cause in- digestion.”

Wonderful Ulrd Plfarht. The most wonderful bird flight noted

is the migratory achievement of the Virginia plover, which leaves the north- ern haunts in North America and. tak- ing a course down the Atlantic, usually from 400 to 500 miles east of the Ber- mudas. reaches the coast of Brazil in one unbroken flight of fifteen hours, covering a distance of 3,200 miles at the rate of four miles a minute.

1 [Copyright. 1903 by c. B. Lewl*.J I The brig Foam, bound from Liver- i yool to tbe West Indies and having on

i Hoard 2fK) English emigrants, had been

j 'or four days a drifting wreck when

j sighted by tbe Dolphin of Bremen. It 10 happened that an American man-

if-war to which I belonged as an cn-

! istod man put into that port for some

j slight repairs, and twelve of us desert- ed to go aboard of the Dolphin. It

; rloes not excuse our action to say that the captain brought this desertion

j idiout by tbe promise of high wages. He wanted a crew ami did not care

I bow the men came to bim. We bad been twelve days out when

we sighted the Foam as she lay wal-

j lowing in the trough of the sea, a com-

plete wreck aloft. After a brief look at her through the glass the captqjn hi-gan cursing his III luck. As a mai-

ler of fact, we had neither room, water

i nor provisions to spare, and the ship [was loaded down to the murk with

j cargo, but when we beard our officers pro[>ose to pass the wreck without no-

tice every man of the twelve was

ready for mutiny. We demanded that communication tie opened with the un-

fortunate people, ami after a good deal of growling the Dolphin ran down to

the wreck and sent a boat to ber. Tbe report of tbe mate when he re-

turned was tty llie effect that the peo- ple were on quarter allowance, with much sickness among the women and children, ami that they desired to aban- don the wreck ami be taken aboard of the ship. We had spare spars alioard. Slid the captain offered to sell three or

four sticks for about three times their vatne. the payment to lie made in gold on delivery. The tirig declined this •■generous" offer, as the crew was sat-

isfied that the shattered hulk could never be worked Into port, even If fully provisioned besides.

Our captain was holding on. not

wishing to take the unfortunates and yet afraid of us, when a squall came

on. and he attempted to sail away. Tlie whole crew, including the second mate, at once refused duty. The rap- tain and first mate then declared their authority at end and went below, but we were not to be bin (fed. Tlie second mate was installed as captain, and two

hours later all the people on the wreck had been transferred. It was in good time, too, as a gale came ou that lasted for three days and must have sent the brig to the bottom.

We had mutinied and taken posses- sion of the ship, but we felt that cir- c*mstances Justified it. Neither insult nor harm was offered the two officers. They made many threats as to the punishment we should receive when tlie ship arrived in port, but we stood firm and kept clear of any further quar- rels. Our craft had no accommodation whatever for passengers, and you ran

imagine the mess we were in when that crowd was taken aboard. Tlie captain not only flatly refused to take charge of the navigation, but would have nothing whatever to do with tlie unfortunates. He could have sheltered many women and children in the cabin, but not even the slek ones were invited to make use of It. Everybody aboard had to be put on short allowance at

once, and a shift was made whereby the women and children were at least sheltered.

After a general consultation it was

decided to make for the Bermudas, and ou the fourth day after taking the peo- j pie off the wreck we sighted an Amer- j lean ship and secured from her a fair j supply of water and a quantity of flour i

and biscuits. It was a run of seven j days more to the Islands, and during !

the last three days no adult had food 1

enough to keep down the pangs of hun- ger. None of us believed that we could be punished for taking the ship out of the captain's hands to save human life, and I am sure we would not have been meddled with but for the presence of a

British man-of-war in port. As soon

ss our captain could board the craft and report all of us were arrested and flung into prison to await the action of the law. I never found out Just where they Intended to send us for trial, but presume it was Bremen,

For some reason or other there was

n long delay, and at length matters were complicated by our being claimed ns deserters from an American man-of- war. Tbe people whom we bad saved were grateful enough, to be sure, but all others looked u|ion us as a lot of pirates who ought to have bit’ll liung as soon as captured. When we bed been in jail five months we got word from an American who was pretty thoroughly posted on tbe ease that we

should soon be sent away for trial and that we might expect at least five years' imprisonment apiece.

This news decided uh to make an at-

tempt to break jail, and one night a

week later, using tools which a guard had lieen bribed to pass in to ns. we

sawed away the bars of a window and gained our liberty. Proceeding to the harbor, we found an American vessel ready to sail, and la-fore our escape was discovered we were miles at sea.

Five of us afterward surrendered to tbe naval authorities us deserters and took our punishment, but what be—ime of tbe others I do not know.

To save the lives of almost 300 fel- low lieings we were driven to rmi-

finy on the high seas, and while it would seem to have Ik-cd both a noble and heroic action, and one that we

should have received credit for. noth- ing but misfortune and disgrace grew out of it. The contemptible action of our captain even found exensers.

though it was plain that bad he bad Ids way tbe wreck would have taken every soul to the bottom with her.
