The plot was well laid, the stage attractively arranged, and the acting was first-clasand it goes without saying the audience was delighted. While the performers were all ameteurs, they acted like they were use to appearing before the public. The costumes were in keeping with the play. Mrs. O. M.

The man whose Interest in the passenger in Section Three of the last sleeper was most definite and understandable and, therefore, most openly acute, was Conductor Oonnery. Connery had passed through the Pullman several times during the morning, had seen the hand which hung out into the aisle from between the curtains; but the only definite thought that came to him was that Dorne was a sound sleeper. Nearly all the passengers had now breakfasted. Connery, therefore, took a. seat in the diner, breakfasted leisurely and after finishing, walked back through the train. Dorne by now must be up, and might wish to jsee the conductor. As Conner' entered the last sleeper his gaze fell on the dial of pointers which, communicating with the pushbuttons in the different berths, tell the porter which section is calling him, and he saw that while all the other arrows were pointing upward, the arrow marked "3" was pointing down. Dorne was up, then for this was the arrow denoting his berth or at least was awake and had recently rung his KeU Connery looked in upon the porter, who was cleaning up the washroom.

"He is in the observation car," Eaton answered. "Will "you go and get him? The is locked. The porter will let you in and out. Something serious has happened here to Mr. Dorne.

"A few moments earlier all pointers had been set in the . car-do- or alarming Mr. Dome's daughter." Eaton nodded understanding and followed the porter, who, taking the keys again from the conductor, let him out at the rear door of the car and reclosed the door behind him. Eaton went on into the observation car. Without alarming Harriet Dorne, he got Avery away and out of the car. "Is it something wrong with Mr. Dorne?" Donald Avery demanded as Eaton drew hack to let Avery precede him into the open part of the car. "So the conductor sajs." Avery hurried forward toward the berth where Connery was standing beside the surgeon. Connery turned toward him. "I sent for you, sir, because you are the companion of the man who had position Indicating no vcall." "That was before you found the body?" "That was why I went to the berth yes," Connery replied; "that was before I found the body." "Then you mean you did not find the body," Avery charged. "Someone, passing through this car a minute or so before you. must have found him 1" Connery attended without replying. "And evidently that man dared not report it and could not wait longer to know whether Mr. Mr. Dorne was really dead; so he rang the bell!" "Ought we keep Doctor Sinclair any longer from the examination, sir?" Connery now seized Avery's arm in appeal. "The first thing for us to know Is whether Mr. Dorne Is dying Connerj cheeked himself; he had won his appeal. Eaton, standing qui etly watchful, observed that Avery's eagerness to accuse now had been replaced fty another Interest which the conductor's words had recalled. Whether the man in the berth was to livje or die evidently that was momentously to affect Donald Avery one way or the other. "Of course, by all means proceen Doctor," your examination. with Avery directed. As Sinclair again bent over the body Avery leaned over also; Eaton gazed down, and Connery a little paler than before and with lips rightly set.

And where and when do you want to do it?" Sinclair, however, it appeared, had not yet finished his oxamlnation. "Will you pull down the window curtains?" he directed. As Connery, reaching across the body, complied, the surgeon took a asked. "No, Mistah Connery not yet," the porter answered. "What did he ring for?" Connery looked to the dial, and the porter came out of the washroom and looked at it also. "Fo' the lan's sake. I didn't hear no ring. Mistah Connery.

"You see him as we found him, sir." 4f "Answer it. then." Connery" directed. As the n' no started to obey. Con nery followed him Into the open car. He could see over the negro's shoulder the hand sticking out into the aisle, and this time, at sight of it. Connery started violently. If Dorne had rung, he must have moved ; a man who Is awake does not let his hand hang out in the aisle. Yet the hand had not moed. The long, sensitive fingers fell in precisely the same position as before, stiffly separated a little one from another; they had not changed their position at all. "Wait!" Connery seized the porter by the .arm. "I'll answer it myself." He dismissed the negro and waited until he had gone. He looked about and assured himself that the car, except for himself and the man lying behind the curtains of Section Three, Walking briskly as wasi empty. though he were carelessly passing up the aisle, he brushed hard against the hand and looked back, exclaiming an apology for his carelessness. The hand fell back heavily, Inertly, and resumed its former position and hung as white and lifeless as before. No response to the apology came from behind the curtains; the man in the berth had not roused. Connery rushed back to the curtains and touched the band with his fingers. It was cold! He seized the hand and felt it all then, gasping, he parted the curtains and looked Into the berth. He stared; his breath whistled out; his shoulders jerked, and he drew back, Instinctively pressing his two clenched hands ncnlnst his chest and tlianocket ' which held President Jarvis' order.

"You have no objection to my taking a list of the articles in the berth?" Avery seemed to oppose; then, apparently, he recognized that this was an obvious part of the conductor's duty. "None at all," he replied. Connery gathered up the clothing, the glasses, the watch and purse, and laid them on the seat across the aisle. Sitting down. then, opposite them, he examined them, and, taking everything from the pockets of the clothes, he began to catalogue them before Avery. He counted over the gold and banknotes in the purse and entered the amount upon his list. "You know about what he had with - -- him?" he asked. "Very closely. That Is correct.

He lifted the partly closed eyelid from one of the eyes of the uncon scious man and nodded to Eaton: "Hold the light in front of the pupil."

She was brainy, witty and sweet spirited. And now after the lapse of all these years, in loving memory I want to lay a wreath upon her grave. This also brings to mind some things connected with the "Sanders" Academy, as her father's was called. My dear school father attended this Academy, and he and Tip were about the same age. There were some young men who attended tnat school that in after years made some among the greatest men of Kentucky. One of these whose name I recall was the late Elder John S. Sweeney. He was possibly the greatest religious polemic thi3 country ever had. When in the early eighties when he held meetings for the Christian Church jn Columbia, he had then held over 100 public debates all over the U. S. He was for something like 30 years the pastor of the Christian Church in Paris, Ky., then one of the largest Churches of this faith in the brotherhood. He was elected Treasurer, (I believe it wsb) during the stormy Goe-bdays, but never took his seat, as I remember. An amusing incident took place while young Sweeney was in the Sanders Academy. , which I have heard him tell himself. There was a very large overbearing young man in the Academy by the name of'Redmon, who took a dislike to a small fellow student, . whose name I have forgotten. But at every recess would be- of the school,-Redm-on el , wwmmwmMmmmm mwmmmmmmmmmm gin to make life miserable for the young man. Sweeney stood this as long as his Irish nature would permit, so he made an agreement with the young man 's one day to put an end to tirades. The plan was for Sweeney to furnish an old ' Hoss Pistol well filled with polk berries, for it was in the summer time, and conceal it in a hollow stump on the play ground. The scene was set for the next day at the noon recess, when it was certain that Redmon would be on the job. When the attack was made by Redmon, the young fellow kept backing and pleading with Redmon to desist. He backed up to the old stump, and the young fellow pulled out the concealed weapon and fired the load of polk berries at Redmon, covering him with red juice. Sweeney called out, 'boys, he is shot, he will bleed to death, lets take him to the branch' and wash off the blood." By the time they had washed off the "blood," Redmon saw the joke, but never bothered the young man any more. v The Sanders Academy stood on a smalftract of land, just opposite Cicero Hood's home, and until the early part of this year, my brother, Mont Harmon owned this land. It had been in the possession of the Squires family for jnany years, and when I married Mollie Squires in 1882, the foundation of the Sanders Acad-- 1 emy was standing. In 1883 when I moved to Columbia, and became a tercher in, Columbia Christian College, I moved enough of this foundation to Co Red-mon- R, L Goode and Ola Goode. j Deft.
