christening of the czare vitch is robbed of much of the promi nence which would otherwise be ac corded it and St Petersburg Is dim and silent with no sign of festivity Although the fairylike grounds of the P terhot are gay with flags and deco palaceLjkscene resembles more one of a weighty International conference than that of a gathering of merrymakers The capital Is filled with sinister ru mors of Port Arthurs desperate strips The superstitious are predict ing the fall of the fortress on the day of the baptism of the czarevltch but this is easily traceable to the fact that several big Russian reverses have oc curred on Russian fete days It Is reported that a messagewas received from Lieutenant General Stoessel which was sent from Port Arthur on the night of Aug 22 by way of Chefoo saying that a desper ate assault by the Japanese had been In progress during the previous 48 hours No confirmation of this report can be had While the general staff does not conceal its anxiety the best military authorities have not aban doned the hope that General Stoessel will be able to hold out This more hopeful view is somewhat borne out by an unofficial dispatch from Llao I Yang saying that in a two days assault on Aug 19 and Aug 20 the at tackers like their predecessors were beaten off with heavy loss The situation at Llao Yang itself is quiet but tho Improving weather pre cedes

but great as I1S his dnnger ho regarded it ns nothing compared to the danger that threatened Almn He was nl most exhausted from hunger cold and grief The boat slowly drifted In n southern direction milking toward the eastern side of the Caspian It drift ed out of the ordinary course of navi gallon and he watched In vain for a passing vessel lIe watched ns long as possible the course of the ameers sloop and reasoned that It was making for the nearest Bokharan port Night came on with no rescuing vessel Insight Hour nfter hour he drifted hoping almost against hope ever thinking I of Alma and of a way to help her About midnight it seemed to him that the rocking motion of the boat had ceased that it had become stationary Here is a pretty mess he exclaim ed I wonder if this old hulk has run aground The Caspian is shallow but I did not think a boat like this could run aground in the middle of it An examination in tho dark was not easy Harvey slid down the pile of hay groping about with one hand while he clung for safety with the other He fancied be saw a faint light glimmering some distance from him but It disappeared as suddenly as it had come He saw the light again a quick passing from one point to anoth er but showing for a moment only Now thnt light Is not on n vessel Harvey reasoned It is a lantern car ried around by a person who is walking on land If I drifted aground here cer tainly there cannot be water enough at that place to float any kind of vessel Ive probably drifted on the shore of Bono Jfllaiiil Is It n tuvanli SILoWiI 9 tr orVtti Fix worse oft in

toward tho hayboat but soon disappeared Into the same place from which came th now mysterious It resting is nu lightIcannot bo very deep between this nm tho island Ill swim ashore nnd risl it II He removed some of hits clothing made a bundle of it and slid off Into the water To his surprise he could stand on bottom Carefully he felt hit way For n short distance the water grew more shallow Then it got deep or and he was forced to swim After a short swim he again felt the ground under his feet and he waded on to dry land The shore was sandy He moved slowly nnd cautiously It was difficult to locate where the light had been He groped along wander ing In many curves Trees were on the Island but he could see no trace of n building After groping some time in the darkness he discovered what ap peared to be n rock about five feet high Feeling tho surface of this he found thnt it was not a solid rock but a rocky formation with nn opening on one side Lying lInt on the ground nnd peering In he saw n light far in the earth apparently from a lantern hung on n peg He slowly crawled in side the cave After advancing for several feet he found thnt he could stand up and walk A voice came from behind n shelter of the rocky wall that projected into the chamber It pleased Harvey that it wns not the voice of n Russian for Russians were the only people he had any reason to fear- I have spoken said n calm stern voice within the concealed chamber I have given the treasure as it should be given But no my brother came n voice that seemed to Harvey to tremble with emotion It was n harsh cold voice not like the other You have done well for yourself You have done well for the clans In the mountains But we have not fared ns we should Was it not our courage that made the accumulation of this

soldiers steal our children Our boys are compelled to enter the ameers army and our girls curses upon the nmlet und upon you if you cnnnot see the Justice of what I nm doing But the ameer has desisted

We intend toyou will see what we Intend Harvey began to catch tho drift of thingsThis he reasoned Is what Is popularly called honor among thieves Heres n bund of four who have been successful In gathering treasure by robbing everything nnd everybody to enrich a people kept down by that miserable wretch of lau ameer And now the only decent one If there Is such a thing as decency among them Is to be killed so that the other three can keep the treasure instead of putting It to time use originally intended Three against one If I cnn save tine leader 1 can no doubt enlist him in my behalf He crept to the wall nnd peered around A strange eight mot his eager gaze On a wooden peg that had been driven Into a crevice of the rocky wall hung a lantern Oil tho atone floor of the cavern squatted

Itozel tho great Virginia evangelist who in his day was one of the best known pulpit orators In the south Sam Hazel was a very big man and had a wide reputation for physical strength In his college days he came off the field of combat usually u cir cumscribed and secluded urea of tho campus wearing the laurel of victory on many occasions and after he became a preacher stories of his phys teal prowess were spread far and near Ono lily he went to n village to hold u protracted meeting The village blacksmith who was a very big man and who was recognized especially among the tavern habitues as n pugil- Istic wonder heard about the coming of Itozel and tho villagers did not fall to tell him all they had heard about tho size of the parsons arm and the length of his legs and of the con vincing way ho had of closing an ar gument with his fists All this nettled the smith consld erably so when Rozel reached the town he sought him out and asked him to fight Rozel of course said he did not want to fight but the smith kept ou insisting and finally Rozel became angry and agreed to gratify the fel lowThey fought Rozel literally wiped up the ground with tho big man When he had pounded him until the poor vanquished bully was gasping hard Rozel picked him up and threw him over a fence Tho blacksmith had not said a word since the affray began up to this point As ho rolled over on the other side of tho fence however ho culled out Say parson kindly throw my horse over too Im going away But Rozel followed the man to his home and had him sitting on a front bench at the meeting that same night

to be present It was settled beforehand that General Grunt was to bo the Republican presidential candidate The great sol dier hud maintained a calm and noble dignity through all the trying days of conflict between concrcss and Andrew c M Johnson and was now honored almost as much for his diplomacy as for hs success at arms Indeed the mantle of sweet renown left by Lincoln would seem fo have been laid upon the shoul ders of Grant and he wore it with be coming grandeur and humility Realizing that the convention would name Grant as its choice Nast pro pared a little surprise for the event He painted upon a large curtain the White House entrance with two pedestals one on each side bearing the words Republican Nominee Chicago May 20 and Democratic Nominee New York July 4 respectively On the Republican pedestal was seated the figure of Grant while Columbia stood pointing to the empty place opposite Below were the words Match Him This curtain with a blank curtain before it was suspended at the back of the convention stage At the Instant when General Grunt was announced as tho unanimous presidential choice of his party the blank curtain was lifted and the great cartoon Match Him was suddenly exposed to full view The occurrence was so unexpected that the throng was silent for a mo ment taking it In then realizing that it was a spectacular climax the picto rial expression of n universal senl ment the assembled multitude gave vent to an enthusiasm that turned the great hull Into n pandemonium of exul tation Albert BIgelow Paine In Pear sons A Vnlnnlile Scrapbook To

Young men he said when you begin to paint dont choose peculiar and uncanny subjects for your pictures Some of you though despite me will choose such subjects That has been the case with all my classes- A country lad painted under me a picture of Nebuchadnezzar eating grass The picture was intended to be horrible and sad In a guunt landscape j the king nearly naked crouched i on his hands and knees He was eat fug greedily of nblg bunch of grass that he held In his left hand His as pect was bestial and insane The plc1 ture wasnt badly done but whoever looked at It laughed Another student of mine once paint tlIveruncehis face turned skyward In grateful prayer The whale was disappearing Its vast bulk was sinking into the sea A young Australian painted The Pound of Flesh In this composition t the judge and the multitude of specta l tknifetp lock Shylock was howling with wide jopen mouth and arms stretched out In an appeal for mercy and the blood was beginning to flow from his side r When this pictures disagreement with Shakespeares text was pointed out to the young Australian he said smiling indifferently that an error of that sort did not Interfere with the pictures value as a work of art Among the queer subjects that my I pupils have chosen to paint there have been lepers snakes tombstones rats itI tailors worms skeletons and surgicalkoperations Pittsburg Press r The

till it raise a family and become a citizen of whom the community might be proud At the conclusion of his remarks Dr Rose announced that he was willing to be interrogated Klckliigborg took the floor He said Why dont white men do as white man says Raising his arm and pointing to Fort Sill he continued saying Lots white men there got no squaws no farm they carry guns Dr Rose was dumfounded It would have been certain death to have truthfully explained to the Indians the reason for the station of the troops at Fort Sill And so Dr Rose made no attempt to answer the question which bad a demoralizing
