lifted the receiver of his telephone and talked to his secretary In another room while Shirley who was still standing continued examining the papers and lettersIs that you Bagley Whats that General Dodge Get rid of him I cant see him today Tell him to come tomorrow Whats that My son wants to see me Tell him to come to the phone At that Instant Shirley gave a little cry which In vain she tried to suppress Ryder looked up Whats the matter he demanded startledNothing nothing I she replied in a hoarse whisper I pricked myself with a pin Dont mind me She had just come across her fath ers missing letters which had got mixed up evidently without Ryders knowledge In the mass of papers ho had handed her Prepared as she was to find tho letters somewhere In the house she never dreamed that fate would put them so easily and so quick ly Into her hands the suddenness of their appearance and the sight of her fathers familiar signature affected her almost like a shock Now she had them she must not let them go again yet how could she keep them unob served Could she conceal them Would he miss them She tried to slip thorn In her bosom while Ryder was busy at the phone but he suddenly glanced in her direction and caught her eye She still held the letters In her hand which shook from nervousness but he noticed nothing and went on speaking through the phone Hello Jefferson boy You want to see me Can you wait till Im through Ive got a lady here Going away Nonsense Determined eh 7 Well I cant keep you here If youve made up your mind You want to say goodby Come up In about five minutes

voice the result of the nervous strain she was under she mid You want me to come hereT Site looked up from the letters she was reading ncitws to llyder who was standing watching her on the other side of the leak He caught her glance and leaning over to take some manu script he said Yes I dont want these papers to Jot Ills eye suddenly rested on the letters she won holding He stopped short and reaching forward ho tried to snatch them from her What have you got there he ex claimed Ho took the letters and she made no resistance It would be folly to force the Issue now she thought Another opportunity would present Itself Ry der locked the letters up very carefully In the drawer on the lefthand side of his dusk muttering to himself rather than speaking to Shirley How on earth did they get among my other papers From Judge Itossmore were they notT said Shirley boldly How did you know It was Judge Rossmoro demanded Ryder suspi ciously I didnt know that his name had been mentioned- I saw his signature she said sim ply Then she ndded Hes the father of the girl you dont like Isnt he7 Yes hes the A cloud came over the financiers face Ills eyes darkened his Jaws snapped and he clinched his fist How you must hate him I said Shir ley who observed the change Not at all replied Ryder recover- Ing his self possession and suavity of manner I disagree with his politics and his methods butI know very lit tie about him except that ho Is about to be removed from office About to bo echoed Shirley So his fate Is decided even before he is Vied 7 The girl laughed bitterly Yes she went on some of the news papers are beginning to think he is in nocent of the things of which ho is ac cusedDo they said Ryder indifferently Yes she persisted most people are on his side She planted her elbows on the desk in front of her and looking him square ly in tho face she asked him point blank Whoso side are you on really and trulyRyder winced What right had this woman a stranger both to Judge Ross moro and himself to come hero and cntochlso him Ho restrained his Impatience with difficulty as he replied Whoso side am I on Oh I dont know that I am on any side I dont know that I give it much thought 1 Do you think this man deserves to bo punished 7 she demanded Sho had resumed her seat at the desk and partly regained her self possession Why do you ask What is your In fcrest in this matter- I dont know she renlled evasive iy lira case interests me tears an Its rather romantic Your son loves this mans daughter He is in disgrace many seem to think unjustly Her What have you pot therer voice trembled with emotion as she continued I have heard from one sourco or anotheryou know I am ac quainted with a number of newspaper menI have heard that life no longer has any interest for him that he Is not only disgraced but beggared that ho is pining away slowly dying of a broken heart that his wife and daughter are in despair Tell me do you think ho deserves such a fate Ryder remained thoughtful a mo ment and then he replied No I do notno Thinking that she had touched his sympathies Shirley followed up her advantageOh why not come to his rescue you who are so rich so powerful you who can move the scales of Jus tice at your will save this man from humiliation and disgrace I Ryder shrugged his shoulders and his face expressed weariness as if the subject had begun to bore him My dear girl you dont understand His removal is necessary Shirleys face became set and hard There was a contemptuous ring to her words as she retorted Yet you admit that he may be inno cont Even if I knew it as a fact I could not move Do you mean to say that if you had positive proof She pointed to the drawer In the desk where he had placed the letters If you had abso lute proof in that drawer for instance wouldnt you help him then Ryders taco grew cold and Inscru table he now wore his fighting mask Not even if I had the absolute proof in that drawer he snapped viciously Have you absolute proof in that drawer she demanded I repent that even if I had I could not expose the men who have been ray friends Its noblesse oblige in politics as well as in society you know He smiled again at her as if he had recovered his good humor after their sharp passages at arms Oh Its politics I Thats what the papers said And you believe him In nocent Well you must have some grounds for your belief Not necessarily You said that even if you had the proofs you could not produce them without sacrificing your friends show Ing that your friends are Interested in having this man put off the bench She stopped and burst Into hysterical laughter Oh I think youre having a Joke at my expense she went on Just to see how far you can lead me I daresay Judge Rossmore deserves all he gets Oh yes Im sure ho deserves It She rose and walked to the other side of the room to conceal her emo tionRyder watched her curiously My dear young lady how you take this matter to heart Please forgive me laughed Shir ley and averting her face to conceal the fact that her eyes wore filled with tears Its my artistic temperament I suppose Its always getting me into trouble It appealed so strongly to my sympathies this story of hopeless love between two young people with the father of the girl hounded by corrupt politicians and unscrupulous financiers It was too much for me Ab ah I forgot where I was she loaned against a chair sick and faint from nervousness her whole body trembling At that moment there was a knock at the library door and Jef ferson Ryder appeared Not seeing Shirley whose back was toward him ho advanced to greet his father You told me to como up In five min utes ho said I Just wanted to say Everybody Should Know says C G Hays a prominent business man of Bloof Mo that Bncklens Ar- nica Halve is the quickest and surest healing salve ever applied to a sore burn or wound or to a case of piles Ive I talkingICo 25c Miss Green said Ryder senior ad dressing Shirley and ignoring whatever it was that the young man wanted to say this is my son Jefferson Jeff this is Miss Green Jefferson looked in the direction Indi cated and stood as If rooted to the floor He was so surprised that ho was struck dumb Finally recovering himself be exclaimed OTineyi Yes Shirley Green the author ex plained Ryder senior not noticing tho note of familiar recognition In his ex clamationShirley advanced and holding out her hand to Jefferson said demurely- I am very pleased to meet you Mr Ryder Then quickly In an undertone she added Bo careful Dont betray meJefferson was so astounded that ho did not see the outstretched hand All he could do was to stand and stare first at her and then at his father Why dont you shako hands with her said Ryder senior She wont bite you Then he added Miss Green Is going to do somo literary work for me so we shall see a great deal of her Its too bad youre going away He chuckled at his own pleasantry Father blurted out Jefferson I came to say that Ivo changed my mind You did not want me to go and I feel I ought to do something to please youGood boy said Ryder pleased Now youre talking common sense He turned to Shirley who was getting ready to make her departure Well Miss Green we may consider the matter settled You undertake the work at the price I named and finish it as soon as you can Of course you will have to consult me a good deal as you go along so I think It would be better for you to come and stay here while tho work is progressing Mrs Ryder can give you a suit of rooms to your self where you will be undisturbed and you will have nil your material close at hand What do you say Shirley was silent for a moment she looked first at Ryder and then at his son and from them her glanco went to the little drawer on the left hand side of the desk Then she said quietlyAs think best Mr Ryder I am quite willing to do the work here Ryder senior escorted her to the top of the landing and watched her as she passed down the grand staircase ush ered by the gorgeously uniformed fiun tries to the front door and the street CHAPTER XIII HIRLEY entered upon her now S duties in the Ryder household two days later She had re turned to her rooms the even Ing of her meeting with the financier In a state bordering upon hysteria The days events had been so extraordinary that it seemed to her they could not bo- real and that she must be in a dream The car ride to Seventyfourth street the interview in the library the discovery of her fathers letters the offer to write the biography and what to hor was still more Important the invi tation to go and live in the Ryder home all these Incidents were so remarka ble and unusual that it was only with difficulty that the girl persuaded her self that they were not figments of a disordered brain But it was all true enough The next mornings mall brought a letter from Mrs Ryder who wrote to the effect that Mr Ryder would like the work to begin at once and adding that a suit of rooms would be ready for her the fol lowing afternoon Shirley did not hes state Everything was to be gained by making the Ryder residence her head quarters her fathers very life depend ing upon the successful outcome of her present mission and this unhoped for opportunity practically Insured success She immediately wrote to Massa pcqua One letter was to her mother saying that sho was extending her vis- It beyond the time originally planned The other letter was to Stott She told him all about the interview with Ry der informed him of the discovery of the letters and after explaining the na ture of the work offered to her said that her address for the next few weeks would be In care of John Bur kett Ryder All was going better than she had dared to hope Everything seemed to favor their plan Her first stop of course while in tho Ryder home would be to secure possession of her fathers letters and these she would dispatch at once to Massapequa so they could be laid before the senate without delay So after settling accounts with her landlady and packing up her few belongings Shirley lost no time in trans ferring herself to the more luxurious quarters provided for her in the 10 000000 mansion uptown At the Ryder house she was received cordially and with every mark of con sideration Tho housekeeper came down to the main hall to greet her when sho arrived and escorted her to the suit of rooms comprising a small working library a bedroom simply but daintily furnished In pink and white and a private bathroom which had been specially prepared for her convenience and comfort and here presently she was joined by Mrs Ry derDear mo exclaimed the financiers wife staring curiously at Shirley what a young girl you are to have made such a stir with a book How did you do It Im sure I couldnt Its as much as I can do to write a letter and halt the time thats not legible Ob it wasnt so hardI laughed Shirley It was the subject that appealed rather than any special skill of mine The trusts and their misdeeds are the favorite topics of tho hour The whole country Is talking about nothing else My book came at the right time thats all Although The American Octopus was a direct attack on her own hue band Mrs Ryder secretly admired this young woman who bad dared to speak a few blunt truths It was a courage which alas she had always lacked herself but there was a certain satisfac tion In knowing there were women in the world not entirely cowed by the tyrant man I have always wanted a daughter wear rm mro ityuer uecuumig ctuu- dcntlal while Shirley removed her things and made herself at home Girls of your ago are so companionable Then abruptly she asked Do your parents live In Now York Shirleys face flushed and she stoop ed over pet trunk to hide her embar rassmentNonot at present she answered evasively My mother and father are In the country Sho was afraid that more questions of n personal nature would follow but I What a young girl you arc to have made such a stir I apparently Mrs Ryder was not in an inquisitive mood for she asked nothing further She only said- I have a son but I dont see much of him You must meet my Jefferson He Is such a nice boy Shirley tried to look unconcerned as she replied- I met him yesterday Mr Ryder introduced him to me Poor lad He has his troubles too went on Mrs Ryder Hes In love with a girl but his father wants him to marry some one else Theyre quar reling over it all the time Parents shouldnt Interfere in matters of the heart said Shirley decisively What is more serious than the choosing of a life companion and who are better entitled to make a free selection than they who are going to spend the rest of their days together Of course it Is a fathers duty to give his son the benefit of his riper experi ence but to insist on a marriage based only on business interests Is little less than a crime There are considera tions more important if the union Is to be a happy or a lasting one The chief thing Is that the man should feel real attachment for the woman ho marries Two people who are to live together as man and wife must be compatible In tastes and temper You cannot mix oil and water It is these selfish mar riages which keep our divorce courts busy Money alone wont buy happi ness In marriage No sighed Mrs Ryder No one knows that better than I The financiers wife was already most favorably Impressed with her guest and she chatted on as if she had known Shirley for years It was rarely that sho had heard so young a wom an express such common sense views and the more she talked with her the less surprised she was that she was the author of a much discussed book Finally thinking that Shirley might prefer to be alone she rose to go bid ding her make herself thoroughly at homo and to ring for anything she might wish A maid had been assign ed to look exclusively after her wants and she could have her meals served In her room or else have them with the family as she liked But Shirley not caring to encounter Mr Ryders cold searching stare more often than neces sary said she would prefer to take her meals alone Left to herself Shirley settled down to work in earnest Mr Ryder had sent to her room all the material for the biography and soon she was com pletely absorbed In the task of sorting and arranging letters making extracts from records compiling data etc lay- Ing the foundations for the Important book she was to write Sho wondered what they would call It and she smiled as a peculiarly appropriate title flash ed through her mind The History of a Crime Yet she thought they could hardly Infringe on Victor Hugo Per haps the best title was tho simplest The History of tho Empire Trading Company Every one would under stand that it told the story of John Burkett Ryders remarkable career from his earliest beginnings to the present time She worked feverishly all that evening getting the material Into shape and the following day found her early at her desk No one disturbed her and she wrote steadily on until noon Mrs Ryder only once putting her head In tho door to wish her good morning After luncheon Shirley decided that the weather was too glorious to remain indoors Her health must not be Jeop ardized even to advance the interests of the Colossus so she put on her hat and left tho house to go for a walk The air smelled sweet to her after be- Ing confined so long Indoors and she walked with a more elastic and buoy ant step than she had since her return home Turning down Fifth avenue she entered the park at Seventysecond street following the pathway until she came to tho bend In the driveway op posite the Casino The park Was al most deserted at that hour and there was a delightful sense of solitude and a sweet scent pf new mown hay from the freshly cut lawns She found an empty bench well shaded by an over spreading tree and sat down grate ful for the rest and quiet She wondered what Jefferson thought of her action in coming to his fathers house practically in disguise and un der an assumed name She must see him at once for in him lay her hope of obtaining possession of the letters Certainly she felt no delicacy or com punction in asking Jefferson to do her this service The letters belonged to her father and they were being wrong fully withheld with the deliberate pur pose of doing him an injury Sho had a moral If not a legal right to recover the letters In any way that she could She was so deeply engrossed in her thoughts that she had not noticed a hansom cab which suddenly drew up with a jerk at the curb opposite her bench A man Jumped out It was Jef fersonHello Shirley he cried gayly Who would have expected to find you rusticating on a bench here I pictured you grinding away at home doing lit erary stunts for the governor Ho grinned and then added Come for a drive I want to talk to you Shirley demurred No she could not spare the time Yet she thought to herself why was not this a good op portunity to explain to Jefferson how he camo to find her in his fathers 11 brary masquerading under another name and also to ask him to secure tho letters for her While she pondered Jefferson Insisted and a few minutes later she found herself sitting beside him in the cab They started off at a brisk pace Shirley sitting with her head back enjoying the strong breeze caused by the rapid motion Now tell me he said what does It all mean I was so startled at see- Ing you in the library the other day that I almost betrayed you How did you come to call on father Briefly Shirley explained everything She told him how Mr Ryder had writ ten to her asking her to call and see him and how she had eagerly seized at this last straw In the hope of helping her father She told him about tho letters explaining how necessary they were for her fathers defense and how she had discovered them Mr Ryder she said had seemed to take a fancy to her and had asked her to remain In the house as his guest while she was compiling his biography and she had accepted the offer not so much for the amount of money Involved as for tho splendid opportunity It afforded her to gain possession of the Iqtters So that Is the mysterious work you spoke of to get thoso letters said JeffersonYes that is my mission It was n secret I couldnt tell you I couldnt tell any one Only Judge Stott knows lIe Is aware I have found them and is hourly expecting to receive them from me And now she said I want your helpHis only answer was to grasp tighter the hand sho had laid in his She knew that she would not harp to ex plain the nature of the service she wanted He understood Where are the letters 7 he demanded In tho left hand drawer of your fa thers desk she answered Ho was silent for a few moments and then ho said simply- I will get them The cab by this tune had got as far as Claremont and from the hill summit they had a splendid view of the broad sweep of the majestic Hudson and the towering walls of the blue palisades The day was so beautiful and tho air so Invigorating that Jeffer son suggested a ramble along the banks of the river They could leave the cab at Claremont and drive back to the city later Shirley was too grateful to him for his promise of cooperation to make any further opposition and soon they were far away from beaten highways down on the banks of the historic stream picking flowers and laughing merrily like two truant children bent on a self made holiday The place they had reached was Just outside the northern bound aries of Harlem a sylvan spot sjlll un spoiled by the rude invasion of the flat house builder The land thickly wood ed sloped down sharply to the wa ter and the perfect quiet was broken only by the washing of tho tiny surf against the river bank and the shrill notes of the birds in the trees Although it was late In October the lay was warm and Shirley soon tired of climbing over bramble entangled verdure The rich grass underfoot looked cool and Inviting and the nat ural slope of the ground affording an Ideal resting place she sat there with Jefferson stretched out at her feet both watching Idly the dancing waters of tho broad Hudson spangled with gleams of light as they swept swiftly by on their Journey to the sea Shirley said Jefferson suddenly I suppose you saw that ridiculous story about my alleged engagement to Miss Roberts I hope you understood that It was done without my consent- If I did not guess it Jeff she an swered your assurance would be sufficient Besides sho added what right have I to object But I want you to have the right ho replied earnestly Im going to stop this Roberts nonsense in a way my father hardly anticipates Im just waiting a chance to talk to him Ill show him the absurdity of announcing me engaged to a girl who Is about to elope with hIs private secretary I Elope with the secretaryI exclaim ed Shirley Jefferson told all about the fetter he had found on the staircase and the Hon Fitzroy Bagleys plans for a run away marriage with the senators wealthy daughter Its a godsend to me he said glee fully Trleir planJ Ic to lt married next Wednesday Ill see my father on Tuesday Ill put tho evidence in his hands and I dont think ho added grimly hell bother me any mote about Miss Roberts 4f So youre not going away now said Shirley smiling down at him Ho sat up and leaned over toward her I cant Shirley I simply cant ho replied his voice trembling You are more to me than I dreamed a woman could ever be I realize it more forci bly every day There is no use fight- Ing against It Without you my work my life means nothing Shirley shook her head and averted hereyesDont let us speak of that Jeff she pleaded gently I told you I did not belong to myself while my father was In peril But I must speak of It he Inter rupted Shirley you do yourself an Injustice as well as me You are not Indifferent to meI feel that Then why raise this barrier between us A softjllght stole Into the girls eyes Ah It was good to feel there was some one to whom she was everything in tho world I Dont ask mo to betray my trust Jeff she faltered Yofl know I am not Indifferent to youfar from it But 1- He came closer until his face nearly touched hers I love youI want you ho mur niured feverishly Give mo the right to claim you before all the world as my future wlrell Every note of his rich manly voice vibrating with Impetuous passion sounded In Shirleys ear like a soft caress She closed her eyes A strange feeling of languor was stealing oveu her a mysterious thrill passed through her whole body Tho eternal Inevita blesex Instinct was disturbing for the first time a woman whose lifo had been singularly free from such Influ ences putting to flight all the calcula tions and resolves her cooler judgment had made Tho sensuous charm of the placethe distant splash of the water the singing of the birds the fragrance of the trees and grass all these sym bols of the joy of life conspired to arouse tho love hunger of the woman Why after all should she not know happiness like other women She had a sacred duty to perform It was true but would It be less well done because she declined to stifle tho natural lean- Ings of her womanhood Both her soul and her body called out Let this man love you give yourself to him he is worthy of your love Half unconsciously she listened to his ardent wooing her eyes shut as he spoke quickly passionately his breath warm upon her cheek Shirley I offer you all tho devotion a man can give a woman Say the one word that will make me the happiest or the most wretched of men Yes or no Only think well before you wreck Say you will be my wife my life I love youI love youl I will wait for you if need be until the crack of doom Say say you will bo my wifeShe opened her eyes His face was bent close over hers Their lips almost touchedYes Jefferson sho murmured I do love you I His lips met hers In a long passion ate kiss Her eyes closed and an ecstatic thrill seemed to convulse her entire being The birds in the trees overhead sang In more joyful COOs in celebration of the betrothal 3 Continued next w- eekRheumatism M I have found a tried and tested cure for Rhea cation I Not a

the man who did iIt utterly failed in his attempt Great gullies on the sides and heaps of rock iiin the middle over which it is dangerous for man or beast to travel is the kind of work that has been done It is money squandered and lost to the taxpayer Road working and building is a science a trade and a man has to know how before fro can be a successful rJad worker Piling great heaps of rocks iiin the middle of a road without any regard to drainage or smoothness is an old time idea that dont work for any good The first thing to do is to get the water out the wayg the road led in such a shape that not a drop of water that falls on i it will stand on the surface The idea sof filling up a hole with a lot of big rooks and covering them over with dirt is no good If rocks are used they ought ito be crushed so they will pack hard and solid to keep the water from standing on the surface Its the water that creates the trouble with all of our roads If the taxpayers dont get better results for their money they will cut the tax out an we couldnt blame them AT TILE FAIR The days we have been looking for Ward to will be here next week when the Breckenridge County Fair opens at

Never WhimperedA Genius Whose Ideal Has A- Il ways Been Perfection In His Chosen Art tSample of His Powerful Pathos t l As Beau Brummel In Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde RICHARD MANSFIELD By UOBERTUS LOVE ICHARD MANSFIELD is a prod igy The word prodigy has two definitions By one moaning It is a person so extraordinary as to excite wonder or astonishment By the Accortlltnga Mansfield perhaps fits tho latter defini tion but in truth he does not That he Is an extraordinary person who has oxclted both wonder and astonishment Tor years Is strictly true When the news was sent outII few days ago Trom the great north woods of New York state Hint the famous actor waVe lying seriously HI In a little cottage broken lit body and mind pathetically tailing for his stage costumes and mumbling over some of the lines of his chief triumphs the thought occurred to more than one person that the life of a successful tragedian may be in Itself n tragedy In the world of artistic en deavor triumph and tragedy lie very close together Very frequently toward the final curtain they overlap Since the death of Henry Irving Mansfield has been recognized as the greatest living actor that speaks his lines In the English tongue For a score of years he has been mounting Bteadlly and surely toward that proud position He was born to climb tn th last for his Ideal always has been perfection In his chosen art ij Traveled Like a Monarch Among tho laity it may have been RichardMansfieldof his profession traveling in his own private car luxuriously furnished oc cupying special suits at the finest ho tels owning a splendid homo on Riv erside drive in New York and another at New London Conn No monarch over journeyed in more magnificent Btyle than Richard Mansfield No monarch ever appeared more haughty ban he in his attitude toward the or Unary people Europe has half a doz rn kings more easy to approach than this King Richard of tho stage pThat is one picture Now for the other fitLessf than thirty years ago a young nan this same Richard Mansfield exi Bted in London In the most pitiful y verty For years and years says Mans Beld T went homo to my little room tI fortunately had one J1d perhaps tnUow dip was stuck In the neck ot- bottle and I was fortundte If I had- omeQiIng to codk for myeelf over a 1ICTbft vita nyr life For years and years when night came I have wandered about the streets of London and if I had n penny I invested it in baked potatoes from the baked potato man on tho corner I would put those hot potatoes in my pocket and after I had warmed my hands I would swallow the potatoes That is the truthBut Richard Mansfield did not use hot potatoes both for heat and food because he had to He did it because he wanted to be an actorperhaps be cause ho had to be an actor His mother tho noted singer Mme Ruders dorff desired him to be n painter The youth tried painting with fair success artistically His mother was wealthy She had gold in abundance for Richard the artist but not a cent for Richard the actor When the young man de termined to be an actor the madame cut him off as to finances hence the hot potatoes Starveling For Years Millions of men may live on baked potatoes and restaurant smells with out any particular privation But it was different with young Richard Mansfield He had been gently rear ed His mother adored him and he idolized his mother She brought him with her to Boston when he was a boy and put him in school She took him to various European countries and put him in school He grew up in an artistic atmosphere He played the piano like an adept He spoke several languages lIe painted well He had the key of admission to the politest social circles yet because he was de termined to become an actor and n groat actor he was a London starve ling for years and years and nobody ever heard him whimper You may not like Richard Mansfield Many persons who do not know him dislike him He seems to have cultivated the art of making enemies of strangers to the ultimate limit But you must admire his nerve his pluck his British bulldog tenacity of pur pose Ho was going to get there and ho got there After years and years he got theregot so far that Instead of continuing to cat potatoes after using them for pocket stoves ho was living in his own New York home by the time ho reached the age of thirtyfive and eating in a dining room furnished altogether with tables chairs and side boards from tho royal palace at Ver tallies Truly It was no primrose path of dalliance that Richard Mansfield trav eled After long struggling and many rebuffs he finally secured a comic op era job W S Gilbert that beloved librettist whose works gave delight to millions became interested in young Mansfield and got him a place in Pin afore Mansfield played with the troupe in the British provinces for three years at g15 a week Then ho determined to go up to London for he felt himself fit for something better Richard Mansfield Is practically an American actor and America is proud to claim him Ho was born however on the little Island of Helgoland fifty years ago His father was a British army officer and his mother a Russian opera singerHow HeHMade Good Mansfield came to America to re main permanently about twentyfive years ago He had achieved fair suc cess on the London stage He ap peared here first in comic operas and comedies and won n considerable rep utation It was in his part of Prince Karl In the play written by A C Gunter who died only a few months ago that Mansfield made good and started fairly on the road to his great reputation But he had to struggle I nm as determined as the tides of the ocean and as patient as the Cath olic church he once remarked when adverse criticism was encountered Mansfields breakdown in his prime is due to overwork That determina tion which has possessed him from the first has undermined his health He reached the private palace car and the Versailles dining room furniture only by the severest sort of labor Inces sant nerve destroying plugging toll at the tasks ho set for himself Some men may spend theIr summers in idle ness Mansfield used To retire to his New London home and spend the warm months studying furiously When he reached the rehearsals he was always letter perfect He knew his lines He knew his characters And they were such characters Shakespeares Schillers Molleres Ibsens and those of lesser tragedians and comedians Not only did he know his characters but he became thorn for the time When I play Richard the king lie has said I am Richard the king Sample of His Pathos There Is a powerful pathos in the letter which Mansfield wrote to the St Louis Republic in reply to nu attack upon him by that paper some years ago when the actor at the old Ilftgan Opera House in St Louis np peared before the footlights and berated his audience declaring that that city could not appreciate art and otherwise expressing severe opinions against the Missouri metropolis- It is especially concerning the para graph which suggests that an actor would be more successful if he enjoy fel1lowI me I havent the time or the Inclina tion to be a good fellow in the souse in which it is generally accepted In this country but I trust that I have at all times been a good friend and a hospitable host Possibly few are aware that when I have played one of my trying roles I am utterly totally exhausted I ought then and there to be wrapped up in blankets and put to bed after having been fed Thats what they do for a good race horsy after n race If I hem and haw it Is because I am exhausted and not because I am an idiot as the polite gentleman on an afternoon paper is good enough to suggest I give my whole life and soul to my work The power for evil in this world is far greater than the power for good Yet some day there will be a few vio lets blooming on the grave of your faithful servant Richard Mansfield This was before he became the fa mous actor of his later years Since then many newspapers have enjoyed remarks derogatory to Mansfield be cause nf the actors ebullitions of temper Various and sundry have been the unkind cuts from the American press There can be no question that a super or a common plug actor bay ing been guilty of outbreaks such as mar Mansfields record would have deserved severe censure At least nine of Mansfields leading women have quit his company in disgust because of his temper Isabel Irving stayed in his support just two days Lucille Flaven lasted one day Katherine Grey Margaret Anglin Lettie Fairfax Florence Kahn Eleanor Barry and Roscllo Knott were among the others who could not stand for the Mans field manneror manners Forgets Self When Acting I suppose sir said an enthusiastic woman to the actcr that when in the spirit of those grew roles you for get your real self for days Yes madam Mansfield replied for days as well as nights It is then I do those dreadful thingstrample on the upturned features of my leading lady and hurl tenderloin steaks at waitersAnd you do not know it at a1l7 Not a solitary thing madam until I read tho papers next day One of his leading women at any tate Mansfield did not dismiss Miss Dcatrlce Cameron who was his sup port early in his career and a charm lag actress Is Mrs Richard Mans field She is at her husbands bed side in tho great north woods Let us now forget that a Philadelphia super sued Mansfield for assault and battery because tho actor struck tho super over the head with a spear when he got out of line Let us re fuse to remember the mutton chop which Mansfield threw at the waiter In the Auditorium hotel at Chicago because the chop was frizzled Let ns remember rather the hot potato of the London days the determination the toll the life and soul devotion to the art that overmastered the man and the triumph ho has achieved BIG BALLOON RACES European Sport For Kentucky State Fair RAILROAD RATES CUT IN TWO Tickets Go On Sale Sept 14 and Are Good Returning Until Sept 23 Along with the other big amuse ment enterprises secured for the Ken tucky State Fair in Louisville the week of Sept 10th the State Board of Agriculture has contracted with aeronauts to put on balloon races This is a form of sport that has been responsible for the expenditure of thousands of dollars In Europe among the aristocracy during the past few years It is perhaps the most excit ing of all kinds of races The balloons to be used at the Ken tucky State Fair are as nearly Iden tical as it is possible to manufacture two articles of the same kind They are to be inflated with the same pres sure of gas Expert operators are to be in charge Ballasts of sand weighing I the same will bo given to each and the result of the races will depend upon the manipulation of this ballast almost entirely The balloons will leave the ground at the same time ascend to a height that will throw them into a current of air carrying them naturally in the same direction lIt in the minds eye of the spectator he could divide the balloon race into heats the moment of reaching this air current would bo called the first heat It is here that the excitement begins From one bal loon a bag of sand is thrown out from the other one or two In this way one operator gets the advantage and if be is skillful ho wins the heat Viewed from any standpoint the balloon races at the Kentucky State Fair must prove as great an attrac tion as anything that is billed for the big week which begins Sept lath TROTS PACES RUNNING RACES Kentucky State Fair Will Have a Great Speed Program No matter in what direction the tnito of

In line with its policy to put on only the greatest attractions that can be secured the Kentucky State Fair management has closed a contract to have an Igorrote Village at the com ing exhibition during the week of Sept 16th in Louisville which will undoubtedly prove a great attraction This village is now located within the White City at Chicago Its inhabitants are a horde of barbarians who

the United States government and new contracts were signed with Uncle Sam to bring over a new lot of genuine dog eating Bon toe Igorrotes The primitive life of these barbarians will be lived every day at the Stato Fair just as It is in Bontoc Their huts are of native material coming from the Island of Luzon The tribe Includes some of the famous head hunters of the Philip pines There are many rites

SAILS THROUGH SKIES Knabenshue and His New Pas sengerCarrying Airship KENTUCKY STATE fAIR PLIGHTS Will Go Up Dally During Week of Sept 16A Description of the Aerial Wonder This In brief describes the passen gercarrying airship just invented by Captain Roy Knabenshue of Toledo 0 the first American to master the problem of aerial navigation Captain Knabenshue will personally appear at the Kentucky State Fair to be held in Louisville under the auspices of the State Board of Agriculture during the week of Sept 16 and present to the public the first passengercarrying air ship in the worlds history Many years have been devoted by Captain Knabenshue toward the perfection ot- a craft that will sail the uncharted skies It was he who made the first flight in an airship in America This feat was accomplished in October 1904 at the St Louis Worlds Fair and attracted the attention of the civilized world Since then he has worked assiduously to the end now at- taIned Midnight oil was burned all last winter in putting his ideas to gether and at last his efforts are crowned with success At a great expenditure his services and those of his passengercarrying airship have been secured for Kentucky State Fair His only appearance in Kentucky or Southern Indiana is to be made at the metropolis of the State during State Fair week Indeed he is to make only five other appear ances during the year two of which will be in New York City sailing over Manhatten Island and at the James town Exposition sailing over Hamp ton Roads Easily the engagement of Captain Knabenshuo and his passen

any state Fair in the country The secret of the invention is being guarded closely by the Toledo man but he has consented to give to the public a brief description The vessel as a whole has but a faint resem blance to the smaller crafts of thoI kind which have heretofore been shown in this country There is used an elongated gas bag constructed nf thousands of yards of imported silk of the finest texture which has a Ca parity of more than 20000 cubic feet of hydrogen gas giving to the craft a lifting power of 1800 pounds This envelope is 120 feet in length and something llko 35 feet in diameter Beneath the envelope is the carrying car 90 feet in length and very closely resembling an ordinary streetcar On either side are two mammoth aero planes with which the wind is resist od and the vessel propelled Thin secret of Captain Knaben shues success probably lies in the two delicately constructed engines of 20 horsepower each which furnish tho driving power These enable the craft to sail through the air at a speed of about GO miles an hour when all is calm This velocity Is reduced to 40 miles an hour In a moderate wind However Captain Knabenshue is able to sail under practically al most any weather conditions He sits at the bow of the vessel guiding it In its Journey white cushion seats are provided for the passengers Visitors to tho Fair who desire to make trips with Captain Knabenshuo will be accommodated as fast as pos Bible Those who are timid and can only stand and View with amazement the marvelous product of mans skill and ingenuity will have an opportun ity of a

Reported Aaverseiy An unfavorable report on municipal ownership was made to the city council of Kaukauna Wls by an aldermanic committee that visited Bollcfontaine Columbus Richmond Reesevllie and Evansville Alderman Martin said the lighting plant at Bcllcfontalne cos 73000 that the city owes 322000 bonded debts and has a tax rate of 4 per cent The city owns waterworks gas and electric lighting plants con ducts extensive improvements and pays Its public officials high salaries for tending the plants Alderman Martin further says that 1 in outer cities In the effort to make a good showing plants are allowed to run down until the amount they are bonded for would not be covered by the present value of the propertyMu nicipal Journal and Engineer Covering Up Wastefulness The present evil of municipal own ershlp Is the extravagance of political management of industries This Is generally masked by putting part of the cost on the taxpayers by borrow ing money on the credit of the city or spending It out of the general rev sauce The ultimate and oppressive evil of municipal ownership as lllus provineciaI cities is the steady progress to continuallysIncreasing the citys debt to render kinds of service to the public at a con stunt loss continually made up by taxation and borrowing till the citys credit is goneFrom an Editorial In Minneapolis Tribune The way to get rid of a

who have made statements to the effect that the new London county council Is not opposed to municipal ownership will find it hard to explain the report recently submitted by the committee having in charge the mat ter of the Thames steamboats- In this report it is stated that they had tried in vain to sell or lease them and that their final decision to run them for four and a half months dur ing the summer must not be taken as indorsing the previous policy of the council or as implying any intention that the boats should be worked after the summer season On the contrary It Is put forward as the best If not the only practical method of dealing with tho problem presented to us The committee also proposed to reduce fares and to diminish the wages of the employees which they consider In ex cess of what Is equitable- In regard to the scheme for an enor mous municipal lighting and power plant the preliminary steps for which wero taken by the old council the present council has put Itself on record to the effect that if this scheme goes through under no circumstances will the city operate the plant Figured Profits the Usual Way Although the last annual report of the Crawfordsville Ind municipal electric light plant shows a net profit of 0727 the trustees have Just made a 10 per cent advance In the charge for street lighting This may bo account ed for by the fact that the profits are figured before allowing for Interest sad depreciation which amount to Mtrly 910000 a year ft LOCATION OF H L Under Mans First Rib Says Pro fessor Henry Erica DOES NOT PASS LIKE SHADOW Musician Who

Vciiion N Y who sought to hospitaln thossoul In light from the body says the New York Journal lu explaining his theory of the souls passage and the chance of photographing it Price said The soul of n man is soft and gela tinous small practically shapeless and Belowtwoman at the base of her throat Is a spot of little or no resistance It is from this place when the hour of death has come that the soul must be taken It does not pass like a shadow It is not a flight The soul must be drawn out by an angel sent by God to perform this operation And this seat of life is transferred warm palpitating to a body the counterpart of the one It has left It is substance material and could be as well caught by the camera as the human face I am not in any sense a spiritualist In fact I believe the first effect of my photography of the soul would be to annihilate their doctrine Neither do I believe In transmigration as general anysmenus that all men have souls You may or may not have a soul according as you have merited It from the Deity It you have insulted him It you have outraged his laws you will remain the brute and fall into dust whence you came There Is no such thing as eter nityDo

The life principle Is extinguished During the greater part of a recent afternoon I sat in a coxy room at the Faculty club University of California and talked with Dr John Ellis McTag IIgart D Lltt the man who says that dogs and horses and cows and pigs have souls and that mules and chick ens elephants kangaroos hippopotami and all other queer things are humor tal and can never die writes a San Francisco correspondent of the New York American Dr McTuggurt is a groat scholar one of the worlds most eminent thinkers In his chosen line of philosophy He Is a fellow and lecturer of Trinity college I Cambridge university of England At present he is lecturing at the Uni versity of Californias summer school You say that human souls are immortal I asked Dr McTaggart I so believe the philosopher an sweredAnd that dogs and horses cows and pigs and the fishes and the reptiles and all other intelligent creatures have souls that are Immortal like ours Yes I believe that In what way does the soul of a dog or of any other lower animal differ from a human soul Only In degree You recognize degrees of advancement among souls of all classes hu man or otherwise CertainlyBut souls are immortal- I mean continued existence Had the universe a beginning and will It have an endIt I dont know But I believe in the continuous existence of the soul while there Is a universe This calls for previous existence of all things now alive Yes Immortality extends backward as well as forward Wo do not remember any past ex istence Will we in a next life remem ber this one I see no reason for believing wo wilt These views were not surprising for they are familiar atheistic beliefs but Dr McTaggart rendered me almost speechless when be as an atheist denied the existence of matter denied tho existence of all material things saying that everything in the universe was soul and that our bodies our physical solves were merely dreams delusions Still further ho astounded me by ex pressing confidence that in tho next life and In each succeeding existence the souls that are attracted to one an other in this life will be brought together in each succeeding existence though unconsciously that the loves of this

CITY ACCOUNTS Lincoln Neb Citizens Kept In the Dark as to the Cost of Their Street LightsLincoln Neb Is getting an unenvia ble notoriety through the attempts of its officials to make it appear that its expensive municipal electric plant Is supplying arc lights at a low figure In the report of the city auditor for the seven months ended March 31 1000 although some of the elements of cost were omitted the evident Inten tion was to give a fair showing But unfortunately It was shown that the cost 7303 a year for lamps burning only 2580 hours was larger than tho contract price for lamps supplied by private companies in neighboring cities This was unsatisfactory of course Accordingly in the annual report for the year ended Aug 31 1000 there was a deliberate omission of depreciation and interest charges on that part of the plants cost not covered by bonds 21001 or onequarter of the total construction cost Apparently also the lighting schedule had beets reduced to keep the cost down as the report shows that the lumps burned only 1090 hours during the year By those deI- ces the cost was reduced to 5009 Soon after the appearance of this report the mayor gave out in a newspaper interview that the plant had been grossly maligned and that It was furnishing lights all night awl every night at a cost of 5112 a year It Is charitable to suppose that his honor was unaware of the fact that to give all night every night service the lamps must burn 4000 hours a year Instead of 1900 as shown by the report quoted aboveAt about the time the mayors investigation appeared an investigation of the plant was made by Professors C II Richards and G II Morse of the University of Nebraska Their detail ed report gives the cost per arc per annum as 9884 for an all night serv ice nearly double the cost claimed by the mayor This report was made by the citys consulting engineer but Mayor Brown who is a candidate for reelection has apparently not accept ed Its findings although according to the Omaha Bee he now places the cost at 0329 It Is worth noting that the original estimate for this plant was 55000 construction cost and 25105 annual expense The actual construction cost as shown In the auditors report was 80091 nearly 58 per cent In excess of the estimate The annual expense as shown by the expert report is 32510 exceeding the estimate by 23 per centThis is a typical example of the sort of underestimating that leads cities to adopt municipal ownership and also or the official Juggling of figures by which the public Is temporarily prevented from learning that it
