Its own Tile first alleged culprit In whose be half I ever appeared as an advocati was n valuedIn fact my dearest personal friend Let me conceal his Identity by giving him a name as different from his

agreement which so often renders nominal friend ship wearisome It not positively baneful In my younger days I was fonder of gayety than could be expected of an old man who walks with a cane Perhaps I was at times even Inclined toward recklessness Jack was fat from being Pharisaical yet his sounder common sense not Infrequently acted as a corrective to my caprice by rous lag my better judgment Dear old Jack How I wish But perhaps I had better tell the story In my own prosaic way- I have said that our tastes were not In absolute accord My friend was In terosted In several branches of ro search which seemed to me to be an utter weariness not only to the flesh but to the Intellect as well On the other hand I could never Induce blmII to listen to the simplest legal ment without yawning Chief among I his various hobbles was numismatics Now although from my youth up I have ever taken a deep even If not al ways an abiding Interest in coins It has centered chlctly In those current In my own day and generation as for Instance the American double eagle Scarborough liked these well enough too yet in his eyes they were but as drop In comparison with the antiques which glitddcn the heart and lighten the pocket of the collector I believe that he would have cheerfully parted with his lust gold coin of United States mintage at any time for n bit of cOIl per sufficiently well authenticated as

Yet we shared I n suit of living rooms in common and had few Iif any secrets from each otherThus matters stood with us until one June now long ago The weather was preternaturally and unbearably hot

the tire some little sparrows ceased to chatter or to quarrel and sat upon the branches lifeless and despondent seek ing shelter beneath the dust laden leaves which were beginning to fade and curl as

alone he lived in recollection and on hope Had all the women of New England been a bevy of beauties whose charms rivaled those of the cloud of nymphs that sought to lend St Anthony astray Jack Scarboroughs loyal heart would have been steeled to their fascinations Later he began to complain of ennui lIe proposed to stretch his limbs by long tramps over the hills and study the rugged type of character showed by the shrewd bronzedynnkee farm er After he had started on these strolls his letters became more Inter esting At fir lt he found these strolls rather vapid but he finally discovered in an old plowman a panacea for dull ness Perhaps the clearest light that 1 can shed here on subsequent events may be found In one of his letters writ ten shortly before his return- I have discovered the type of an odd genus in the shape of an old farm laborer He is old and grizzled and bent nnd extremely proud of the fact i that he Is an Englishman by birth 1 find no little entertainment in his com pany He seems to love the soil as though he were conscious of his kin ship to it and not infrequently pauses in his work to examine and break up the clods When I ask him why he does so he grows positively mysteri I ous and hints darkly at rich finds made by him in the past I A few days later be wrote I lave at length learned the secret of farmer friends deep interest in myII lumps of dirt

him to let me have a peep at them and am I to meet him for that purpose tomorrow evening You know my hobby Per haps I may find something of valueOnly realII a few days after the receipt of this last letter my friend returned to i New York It was about halt past 10 in the evening when he fairly burst into our rooms His abruptness how over was easily explained by his ex uberance of enthusiasm He was as brown as h nut from which the ripen ing frosts of October have stripped Its aromatic husk yet his cheeks glowed with the ruddy hue of exercise and his eyes fairly sparkled with excite ment I was hard at work upon a brier but I dropped my pen making a broad splash across the page In my eagerness to welcome him A few words of greeting were exchanged and then Jack dashed Into the subject which was nearest to his heart Graham he said his voice fairly quivering with emotion Ive found a veritable treasure a gold noble of the reign of Edward III And where do you think I got it From that old plowman up in Berkshire As he spoke he extracted from an Inv ner pocket of his purse an irregularly shaped gold coin with odd devices and ill shaped letters stamped on both face and obverse and placed it in my hand with a pride and exultation which were almost boyish I failed to see anything about it particularly Interest Ing yet tried to sympathize In his joy oven although I could in no degree un derstand it To me this treasure seem ed an exceedingly commonplace affair a thin fiat piece of gold somewhat worn and very poorly stamped chiefly t interesting as a sort or object lesson I illustrating the stupendous advance made Ip the science and mechanism ot mintage in our own times What Is It worth was my first in qulryScarborough laughed Thats you all over he cried I suppose your humdrum profcssloi must cultivate your commercial in fetlncts for I can remember when con slderatlouH of relative cost and valiii didnt cut much figure In your calcula tlons However my cynical mentor let me tell you that this coin Is worth in pretty sum more than fifty time what I paid for It There are very fev perfect specimens In existence But nothing would tempt mo to sell It If I had bought It In a speculative way I should feel ns though I had taken a mean advantage of the seller but Inasmuch as I purchased It as a curio and paid what the owner evidently resettled as a good round price my con science doesnt trouble me In the least Of course he added as he tenderly and reverently replaced the cola In his purse I may have made a mistake Yet I think not Tomorrow I shall compare It with the one In the library and then I shall know beyond doubt And now put on your hat and lets gc and have some supper for I am well nigh famished CHAPTER II The next morning the great bronze doors of the library had scarcely swung open for the admission of the public when my friend began the as cent of the stairs his golden noble In his pocket and his heart full ol hope Why Is It that we so often perceive Intuitively or Instinctively the approach of physical peril and yet have no premonition of the coming of the moral cataclysm Scarborough was on friendly terms with the librarian wltot he had known for several years As an habi tue of the place he also had a speaking acquaintance with several of the assistants custodians nnd other em ployees hence when he requested permission to examine the particular tray In which reposed the colts of which he was In quest ft was readily granted Retiring to an alcove in which there was a strong light he eagerly commenced the comparison of his treasure with the piece whose gen ulneness was unquestioned lie had a powerful magnifying glass and made copious notes In about an hour he had satisfied himself that he had not been mistaken and prepared to leave the building No one had come into the alcove while he had been there with the exception of the attendant who had as required by regulation loitered about within sight Elated at the success attending his investiga tlon Jack was perhaps a trifle care less in his handling of the coin en trusted to him At all events he dropped it on the floor He at once ailed the assistant and telling him what he had done asked him to aid him in his search The man whose name was Golson readily assented and for halt an hour both men carefully sought for the missing coin Creeping about on their hands and knees they explored every square inch of the floor raising the edges of the ocoa matting wherever practicable but all in vain Had the noble ben absorbed into the atmosphere like an dorless colorless gas it could not have llsappearcd more completely At ength they abandoned the quest and rising to their feet looked at each other Jack with an expression of lazed despair Golson with a look of keen cold distrust Mr Scarborough said he this Is n very unpleasant affair Decidedly so assented Jack Of course you can understand 3olson went on that under the cir uniatances I have no alternative A alunblc coin has disappeared from a tray which was under your sole con trol at the time You must pardon oe but I am forced to summon the officer on guard to take you to the 11 irarlan My friend stared at him In a helplessly bewildered sort of way To demur would have been worse than useless to submit to the disgrace was the only course open to him On reaching the office of the libra rlan that functionary after listening to Goleona report conducted Jack Into a small inner room requesting the representative of the law to remain lutside the door which he closed Mr Scarborough said be I am nexpresslbly pained I make no in inuations but you can readily see that at personal search must be made Probably you would prefer to empty your pocket voluntarily in my presence to submittIng to the indignity at the rands of the officer If as I fully expect the noble docs not appear any rhero about your clothing you leave his building without the shadow of a stain Unhappy Scarborough 1 At this sag estion made In the kindliest manner be could feel the clammy perspiration standing on his brow in great beads tor In fear that his coin might not be genuine ho had said nothing as to his lotlve for examining the specimen in tbe library Had ho explained his object at the outset and exhibited his seudo duplicate to Mr Pope the 11 rarlan its presence In his pocket would be clearly enough explained But now who would believe him What a gauzy story tho truth would ppear to be But there was no escape Mr Pope and ho spoke slowly and with evident agitation I have in my ocket almost a

fluence on Its Report Resents Newspaper Criticisms Professor Frank Parsons president of the National Municipal Ownership league was recently Interviewed by a representative of the Boston Herald In regard to the testimony beforo the public service commission In Now York to the effect that tho Metropoli tan Securities company bad contribut ed 16000 to tho expenses of the com mission which studied tho problem of municipal ownership hero and abroad Tho testimony beforo the commission said Mr Parsons contained nothing that In any way reflects on either tho Civic federation or tho com mittee of Investigation Tho sensational elements presented by the press were read Into the case by an errone ous Interpretation of somo of the facts stated In the evidence In connection with somo remarks of August Belmont la relation to tho Investigation A large part of the funds were con tributed by various corporations and Industrial Interests tho Metropolitan gmpany among the number and Mr Klmont Is quoted as saying that tho result of the Investigation was very satisfactory Somo newspaper man put thoso two facts together and con Eluded that the corporations had got what they expected and paid for As a matter of fact however Mr Belmonts remark meant merely that the work had been thoroughly done and a valuable mass of facts brought out How far wrong Is the impression that corporation contributions had any Influence on the character of tho re milts may be seen from tho fact that the final resolutions of the commis sion summing up the Investigation are signed by every municipal owner ship member of the commission Another fact which has a strong bearing on the case is that tho super vision of the engineers and experts In Great Britain and tho disbursements of all tho funds across tho water were Intrusted to Dr Milo R Maltble now a member of the New York public service commission and well known as a writer strongly favorable to munic ownershipThe that the Idea of Inves tigating municipal ownership took form In the Civic federation as early as 1900 or long before Mr Belmont became president of tho federation About half the funds or 0er40 000 was raised by scattered subscrlp tlons from persons all over the coun try in amounts ranging from 5 up and tho remainder of the fund was contributed by largo Industrial Inter ests or men connected with them All the money was spent under the supervision of a committee of five on which there were two well known mu nicipal ownership representatives and tho chairman of which was Professor Goodnow of Columbia university Chairman Ingalls of tho committee on Investigation who Is also chair man of the board of directors of the Big Pour railroad Is one of the fairest and most honorable men in the United States and the Investigation from start to finish was conducted without a shadow of influence from the corpo ration contributions which were made to the finance committee- In fact the committee on Investiga tion did now know where tho money came from nor who tho contributors were with a few trifling exceptions until the Investigation was all finished and tho report was In type t wish to say further In all fairness that whDo I personally flo riot at au approve of many things In the history of Mr Belmonts corporations there Is no question In my mind but that ho and tho Civic federation havo acted with perfect fairness toward this com mission on public ownership The engineers and experts worked in pairs ono of each pair representing municipal ownership and tho other representing private ownership This nearly doubled the cost but resulted In securing a body of facts signed by exfterts of the highest character and representing both sides of tho question This gives the report a very unique character and confers on the statements of facts so agreed upon a degree of authority far beyond that which attaches to any previous Investigation How to Cure a Cold Be as careful as you can yon will

Who Skim Greets Off the Sea at Launching Time Ono of the most anxious moments for battleship builders arrives when a new Vessel is launched And by tho way of compensation this is the time when the tallow salvors are joyous The day fixed for the ceremony of launching is reached and as usually happens when a battleship Is to be launched a big crowd assembles The battleship rests on slipways down which she will glide from the dock yard into the water The only thing that prevents the ship from sliding In to the water beforo the proper time Is the dog shoreslarge pieces of wood that keep in position tho cradle upon which the battleship rests When the cord that releases the dog shores is cut the battleship glides down the slip ways into the water amid the cheers of the spectators and the playing of the band The slipways have to be made ps smooth and as slippery as it is pos sible to make them so that nothing shall prevent the battleship from gild ing into the water safely It is the greasy substance with which these slipways are covered that calls forth the Joy of the tallow salvors Since the slightest mishap at the launching would almost certainly prove to be a very costly matter no pains are spared to insure that everything including the ship goes smoothly and the greasing of the sllpways is prop erly regarded as an important task The material used in the process Is generally tallow mixed with linseed oil or soft soap and this is smeared on to the ways to a thickness of about two inches Every inch of the ways must be covered carefully and a host of men are employed In the work First of all the tallow Is spread on with trowels so as to give a smooth and flat surface and then tho soft soap or linseed oil is poured on top Be tween one and one and a half tons of the mixture Is used In the case of a battleship and the cost of launching amounts to a good sum something like 800 or 1000 The tallow salvors get ready to reap the harvest Crowding the water Just where the ship is to be launched will be seen n number of small rowing boats belong- Ing to the tallow salvors As the vessel glides into the water tho tallow which has clung to the keel and bottom plates from the ways becomes loosened and floats to the waters sur face In great masses Then the tallow salvors swarm around Bared to tho shoulder they reach over the sides of their boats and proceed to gather in as much of the floating tallow as they can Some of them even have small hand nets to help them but in any case it Is only a question of a few minutes before the boats are covered both Inside and out with the slippery oily mixture while In the center small heaps of fat gradually arise No ordinary pc son could remain in the boats but rII tallow salvors are not at all They row off with their loads and dispose of them to the local soapI makers Sometimes as much as 2 or 3 can be made by a very agile tallow salvorLondon Answers Colds and Croup in Children My little girl is

tho poets death I have seen him hovering around her when she was ill with all the fond fear and tender anxiety of a mother for her firstborn her slight est cough causing in him a shudder a heart chill

Washington Nov 18President+ Roosevelt has invited the governors of the states and territories to meet him at the White House May 13 14 and 15 next to discuss the question of means to conserve the natural re sources of the country Invitations are to be extended to the members of both houses of congress and to tho In land waterways commission The im as portance and manner in which the sub jeot Is to bo considered are Indicated In the presidents letter to the gover none which follows The natural resources of the terri tory of the United States were at the time of settlement richer more varied in and more available than those of any other equal area on tho surface of the earth The development of these re sources has given us for more than a century a rate of Increase of population and wealth undreamed of by the men who founded our government and without parallel in history It Is ob vious that the prosperity which we now enjoy rests directly upon these resources It Is equally obvious that is the vigor and success which we desire and foresee for this nation in the future mu tlave this as its ultimate material basis In view of these evident facts it seems to me It is time for the country to take account of Its natural re sources and to Inquire how long they are likely to last We are prosperous now we should not forget that It will be Just as Important to our descend ants to be prosperous in their time as it is to us to be prosperous in our timeRecently I expressed the opinion that there is no other question now before the nation of equal gravity with the question of tho conservation of our natural resources and I added that It Is the plait duty of those of us whoI for the moment are responsible to make inventory of the natural re sources which have been handed down to us to forecast as well as we may the needs of the future and so to handle the great sources of our pros perity as not to destroy In advance all hope of the prosperity of our descend antsIt Is evident that the abundant nat ural resources on which the welfare of this nation rests are becoming deplet ed and in not a few cases are already exhausted This Is true of all portions of the United States it Is especially true of the longer settled communities of tho East The grav ity of the situation must I believe appeal with special force to the gov ernors of the states because of their close relations to the people and their responsibility for the welfare of their communities 1 have therefore dead edin accordance with the suggestion of the inland waterways commission to ask the governors of the states and territories to meet at the White House on May 13 14 and 15 to confer with the president and with each other upon tho conservation of natural re sourcesIt me great pleasure to InviteI
