tention everything but the business that had brought him there He ex perienced no fear no premonition of coming disaster yet the reawakened plainsman In him kept him sufficient ly wary and cautious Ho possessed a soldiers proud confidence in his reg Imcnt the supposition that the old fighting Seventh could be defeated was Impossible the Indian did not ride those uplands who could do the deed Then there came to him a nameless dread that Instinctive shrinking which a proud sensitive man must I ever feel at Staving to face his old companions with the shadow of a crime between In his memory he saw once more a low cellinged room having a table extending down tho tenter with gravefaced men dressed In the full uniform of the service looking at him amid a silence like unto death and at the head sat a man with long fair hair and mus tache his proud eyes never to be for rotten Now after silent years he was going to look into those accus tag eyes again lie pressed his hard against his forehead his body trembled then he braced himself for the Interview and the shuddering cow ard In him shrank back Away to tho left something was moving a dim shapeless daih of color It might be Bcnteen but of Renos columns he could ptrcelve nothing nor anything of Ousters ex cepting that broad track across tho prairies marked by his horses noofs This trattk Hampton followed press ing his fresh mount to Increased speed confident that no Indlau spies would be loitering so cloooly m the rear ot that body of cavalry aud bOo coming fearful lest the attack should occur before he could arrive Ho dipped over a sharp rldgo and camo suddenly upon the rear guard They were a llttlo squad of dusty brown faced troopers who Instantly wheeled Into lino at sound of ap proaching hoofs tbo barrels of their Viwcrrd carlilucs glistening lu the cut With a swing of the hand and a hoarse shout of Dispatches he was beyond them bending low over his saddle pommel his eyes on the dust cloud of tho moving column The extended line of horsemen riding In columns of four camo to a sudden halt and ho raced on A little squad of officers several of their number dismounted were out In front stand ing grouped just beyond the summit of a slight elevation apparently look Ing off Into tho valley through some cleft In tho bluff beyond Standing among these Hampton perceived tho long fair hair and tho erect figure clad In the wellknown frontier costume of the man he sought tht proud daajic leader of light cav airy that beau Ideal of tho sabreur the ono ho dreaded most the one he loved bestCuster The commander stood fleld glasses In hand pointing down Into the valley and the dispatch bearer reigning In his horse his lips white but resolute trotted straight up the slope toward him Custer wheel ed annoyed at the interruption and Hampton swung down from tho sad dle his rein flung across his arm took a single step forward lifting his hand in salute and held forth the scaled packetDispatches sir he said simply standing motionless as a statue Tho commander barely glancing toward him instantly tore open the long official envelope and ran his eyes over the dispatch amid a hush in the conversationGentlemen ho commented to the little group gathered about him yet without glancing up from tho paper In his hand Crook was defeated over on the Rosebud the 17th and forced to retire That will account for the unexpected number of hostiles fronting us up here Cook but the greater the task the greater the glory Ah I thought as much I am advised by the department to Shall keep In close touch with Terry and Gibbons and to hold off from making a direct attack until InfAntry can arrive in support Rather late in the day I take It we are already within easy rifleshot I see nothing In these orders to interfero with our present plans nor any military neces sity for playing hldo and seek all summer In these hills That looks like a big village down yonder but I have led the dandy Seventh into oth ers Just as large He stopped speaking aid glanced up Inquiringly into the face of the silent messenger apparently mistak ing him for one of his oWn mono Where did you get this sir What Do you mean to say you brought It through from there Silent Murphy carried It as far as the Powder river Ho went crazy there and I was compelled to strap him I brought it tho rest ot the wayWhere Is Murphy Back with the pack train sir 1 got him through alive but entirely gone the head Hun across many hostlcs in thai regionThey wore thick this side the Rose bud northSiouxMostly sir but I SAW ouo hand wearing Cheyenne war bcnucu A puzzled look slowly crept into I tho strong taco of the abrupt quo tioner his stern commanding eyes studying the man standing motionless before him with freshly awakened In terest The gaze of tho other tailor ed then came back courageously I recognize you now Custer said quietly Am I to understand you are again in tho service My presence hero It purely acci dental Gen Custer Tho opportu nity came to me to do this Work and I very gladly accepted the priv- Ilege The commander hesitated scarcely knowing what ho might be Justified in saying to this man Its a brave deed well performed he said at last with soldierly cordial ity although I can hardly offer you a fitting reward There Is little I desire he replied slowly and that Is to bo permitted to ride once more Into action in the ranks of the Seventh The truehearted impulsive manly soldier fronting him reddened to tho roots of his fair hair his proud eyes softening Spoken like n true soldier he ex claimed a new warmth In his voice You shall have your wish Take po sition In Calhouns troop yonder Hampton turned quietly away lend lag his horse yet had scarcely ad vanced three yards before Custcr halted him- I shall be pleased to talk with you again after tho fight ho said briefly as though half doubting tho propriety of such word The other bowed his face Instantly brightening I thank you sincerely The perplexed commander stood motionless gazing after the receding figure his face grown grave and thoughtful Then he turned to the wondering adjutant beside him t You never knew him did you CookI think not sir who Is he Capt Nolan you have heard the Btorrt Is that so ho exclaimed In evi dent surprise Ho has a manly face Ay and he was as fine a soldier as ever fought under a flag declafcd Custer frankly Poor devil The hardest service I was ever called upon to perform was the day we broke him I wonder If Calhoun will recognize the face they were good friends oncelie stopped and for a time his field glsssos wore fastened upon a small section of the Indian vil lago nestled In tho green valley I doubt If many warriors aro there he commented at last They may have gone up the river to Inter copt Renos advance and If so this You Have Your With Take Position In Calhouns Troop when Cheyenne In speaking to your commands gentlemen and with the order of march see person Lilly that your men move quietly We must strike quick and hard driving the wedge homo with a single blow That will be all at present gentle men you will require no further In structions until we deploy Capt Cal houn just a word The captain thus directly address ed a handsome stalwart man of middle age reined In his horse and waitedCaptain the messenger who has just brought us dispatches from Cheyenne Is a civilian but has requested permission to have a share In this coming fight I have assigned him to your troop Calhoun bowed I thought to spare you any pos sible embarrassment by saying that tho man Is not entirely unknown to yon May I ask his name Robert Nolan the strong Hoollko face flushed under Its tan thou quickly lit up with a smile I thank you Capt Nolan will not fuffor at my bands troqphisthey rested upon the averted taco of Um toll Ho pressed forward end leaned from the saddle extending a manI For an Instant their eyes met those of the officer filled with manly should bo our time to strike Return sympathy the others moistened and dim his taco like marble then the two hands clasped and clung in a grip more eloquent than wore It was Calhoun who spoke- I mean it all Nolan From that day to this I have believed In you have held you friend For a moment the man reeled then as though Inspired by a now born hope ho sat firmly erect and lifted his hand In salute Those are words I have longed to hear spoken for 15 years They are more than life to me May God help mo to be worthy of them Oh Calhoun Cal haunt For a brief space the two remained still and silent their faces reflecting repressed feeling Then the voice of command sounded out In front Calhoun gently withdrew his hand from the others grasp and with bowed head rode slowly to the front of his troopsIn of four silent with not a canteen rattling with scabbards thrust under their stirrup leathers each man sitting In his saddle like a statue ready carbine flung forward across the pommel those sunburnt troopers moved steadily down the broad coulee The troopers riding at either side of Hampton wondering still at their captains peculiar words and actions glanced curiously at the new comrade marveling at his tight ly pressed lips his moistened eyes Yet in all the glorious column no heart lighter than his or happier pressed forward to meet a warriors death CHAPTER XXXIV The Last Stand U was shortly after two oclock In tho afternoon when that compact col umn of cavalrymen moved silently forward down the concealing coulee toward the more open ground beyond Ousters plan was surprise the sudden smiting of that village In the valley from tho rear by tho quick charge of his horsemen From man to man the whispered purpose travelled down tho ranks the eager troopers greeting the welcome message with kindling eyes It was tho old way of the Seventh and they knew It well With Custor riding at tho Head of tho column and only a little to tho roar ot tho advance scouts his adjut ant Cook together with a volunteer judo beside him tho five depleted troops filed resolutely forward dream ing not of fwsslble defeat Suddenly distant shots were heard far off to their loft and roar and deepening into a rumble evidencing a warm engagement The Interested troopers lifted their heads listening intently while onger whispers ran from man to man along the closed files Reno is going In boys It will bo our turn next Close up Quiet there lads quiet officer after officer passed the word of command Yet there wore those among them who felt a strange dreadthat Brine sounded so far up tho stream from whore Reno should have been by that time Still It might be that those overhanging bluffs would muffle and deflect the reports All about them hovered death in dreadful guise None among them saw those cruel spying eyes catching from distant ridges from concealed ra vines none marked the rapidly mass ing hordes hideous In warpaint crowded into nearby coulees and behind protecting hills It burst upon them with wild yells The gloomy ridges blazed Into their startled faces the dark ravines hurled at them skurrylng horsemen while wherever their eyes turned they bo held savage forms leaping forth from hill and coulee gulch and rock shad ow Horses fell or ran about neigh- Ing mon flung up their hands and died In that first awful minute of con sternation and the little column seemed to shrivel away as It consum ed by tho flamo which struck It trout and flank and rear It was as if those men halt ridden into the mouth ot hellYet It was scarcely for more than a minute Men trained strong clear of brain were in those stricken lines men who had seen Indian battle before Tho recoil came swift as bad been the surprise Voice after voice rang out old familiar orders steady ing Instantly tho startled nerves dig cipline conquered disorder and the shattered column rolled out as If by magic Into the semblance of a battle linoIt was magnificently done Custer and his troop commanders brought their sorely smitten mIl Into a posl tion of defense even hurled then cheering forward In short swift charges so as to clear tho front and gain room In which to deploy Out of confuslbn emerged discipline confi dance esprit do corps Sate beyond the tango ot the troopers light carbines tbo Indians with their heavier Allen kept hurling ft constant storm of lead hugging the gullies and spreading out until there was no rear toward which the harass ed cavalrymen could turn for safety One by one continually under a heavy fire the scattered troops were formed Into something more nearly re- semblingI a

Herd By Wllbcr J Fraser Chief In Dairy Hits bundry Illinois University Many dairymen are not raising their heifer calves Instead the herd Is rOi plenished by buying cows Four pro fessional cow buyers sold about 7000 owe In the vicinity of Klein III alone last year besides this many rows wore shipped In by the dairy men themselves On many dairy farms the helter calves Rood bad and Indifferent go for veal Where this In done It means there Is no provl lon for perpetuating tho dairy herd or tho best cows In It The dairyman from whom the Illi nols station bought cow No 1 with a A Shrewd three years record of 406 pounds of butter tat per year was making no ef fort to perpetuate her superior quail ties but was selling her calves at 1560 each This U certainly a ruinous prao tlco to the dairy business The cow borer cannot Ret enough really Rood tows to supply his purr chasers ns but tow of the boat cows are for sale The dairyman himself must raise the hotter calves ot his best cows anti not depend on any bodys offerings to replenish his herd He has the breeding steak tho feed cheap feedand the equipment Calf raising Is a natural part of his busi sees It Is absurd to suppose that as a rule he eaR buy as good cows as he can raise The reasons are plain Ho needs to retain but few calves each I year and CUM sell the leejuproinlslng ones lie knows the pafcmtagouf the cnltos and HMN save none last these from high prodndug mothers It Is tar easier to sell Inferior stock to the butcher than to toy eowg that are excellent jwwl cora A prominent dairyman of the state says of his grade herd Tke belters we raise from our best cows are bet tor milk producers with their firs t calves than are lljcr average mature cows we can buy Several of our most prograMlvu dairymen have saM practically the same thing Yet In the faro of all this hundreds of dairymen mako no effort to save their boat heifer calves and they think they have a reason They say The Dull Is OneHalf of the Herd It takes too much milk This question was carefully Investigated with 48 calves by tho Illinois experiment sta tion Twelve calves at a time wore tested at four different times It was found they could be successfully raised on 160 pounds of whole milk and 400 pounds of skim milk This milk was fed at the rate of ten pounds per day until the calves were CO days old when it was gradually lessened ono pound per day for ten days and then no more was fed No substitutes for milk wore used Only ordinary grains i which the farmer produces and a good quality of legume hay wore fed showing that the dairyman can raise A calf in this way with almost no ex tra trouble Several of theso calves are now cows In milk and good pro ducers Indicating that they were not Injured by this method of raising The sale value of tbo milk fed these calves was as follows 150 tt wholo milk Q II per JOOUOtO- O tb skim milk V 030 per 100 1M Total 1270 And these prices ot milk are liberal i especially as they are paid ut the farm and no money or labor Is expended In hauling ths milk to market It Is not so expensive to raise n colt as the dairymen have thought The grain ard hay consumed by the hollers of high quality will give much better returns than the same feed fed to cows Raising tho heifer calves of good hlgh producing cows is a great fundamental requisite for tho host and nosiest Improvement of the dairy herd Hut those calves will take their qualities front both parents and it Is I iqually Important that the calf shall have good parentage on the malIsideAn Inspection of dairy herds show that

smells from numerous hot springs and tho weird electrical discharges visible at night between Ito Ironstone cuffs and pin nacles the kloof Itself WAS originally known as Satans Firebox Hut later when In the war with tho Mncatcos tho Boors were routed and ono night upwards of 100 women and children hotly pursued by n regiment of Kafir lied screaming through the kloof the name was significantly changed to Petticoat pus But although tho pass was usually Interesting Its inhabitants wore vastly more so Between tho southern gate way at Steolpoort and Its northern out let near Loydcuburg a wonderfully Intelligent race of baboons hoe lived for couturier high up among tbo Iron clad precipice In course of time the while hunter camo along with his deadly rifle and occasionally picked ono of them oft tho rocks Just for the fun of tho thing nnd when the Kafirs took a notion tq potion them for the sake of tholr teeth then tho baboons in Petticoat papa wero driven to de fend themselves In a word they be gan to throw stones So long as tho wagons and the horsemen kept mov ing all was well but when they loi tered or stopped tho whirring of pub tiles through the air and occasionally the appearance of onormnus bowlder out loose from the crags above and that down through the air like can non balls never failed to remind tho loiterers that they were trespassers In their Intercourse with the out ride world the baboons made no dis tinction between black nnd whlto until me day an nvent took place that prac tically closed the pose to the black raGes forever At the Steolpoort end of the pass the Kafir began to encroach They built huts and planted gardens on the fertile slopes near the portal With angry demonstrations the baboons protested but tho Knflr were Indifferent to lINt clamor hut when tho sugar cane ripened the baboons In the night time iwoop tt down from the crags I and helped th m elVM to whit they cotMrtdrrod tholr rightful share of the harvest whereupon the Kafirs who thoroughly understood the peculiari ties of baboon naturo played upon thorn a villainous trick Ono day In plain sight of tholr onumlo who wore watching thorn from tho heights above the Kafirs calabashesBlledplncod them In n row In ono of the gardens Then they went through tho form of pretending to wash their faces with the stuff after which they left tho calabashes In tho gardens and departed Watching their opportunity the baboons came down to Investigate tho business and being unable to restrain tholr hereditary Impulse to Im llato the proceedings of others they forthwith washed their faces In tho poison and scampered away again In n short tlmo the venom began to work thu flesh foil from their faces and finally a number of them did In great Hgony For many days afterwards travelers through the Itloof reported an ox traordinary state of affairs There was much excitement and jabbering and ouch pitiful crying and calling to each other from cliff to cliff But when tho period of mourning was over the baboons settled down to business the business of war Tho prepara dons they made for hostilities with the lIboon8Jlonr luigM cairn of stones appeared at I intervals along the route and at s places where the crags rose almost tiperpendicularly from the roadway groat bowlder were rolled to the edge I ledgesfI lido down and overwhelm tho invaders i Prom tho day when these arrange merits were completed tho baboons 1 paid no attention whatever to white inon and after two or three unfor tunate Kafirs had been stoned to death and torn to pieces tho black race gave Petticoat pass an extreme wile berth Consequently the spider like watchers up In their fastnesses had a long Mme to watt but tho whirligig of time brings about Its opportunities tor i revenge oven to baboons Just outside the Steelpoort end ofI the pass Max Plncus a German trader conducted a small store for tho ac thojwas riding through the kloof and came across a little boy baboon t whose taco was terribly burned by the action of tho acid Tho little fellow Vas crying plteottsly and Max took him up In his arms and carried him to the attire where Maxs mother who bad some knowledge of remedies doc tored him so successfully that his eye Ight was saved For several months her curious little patient was very shy and wild but the good woman was Inditallcable In his efforts to tara him and finally she was rewarded with astonishing success As the young baboon grew up ho became ver much attached to his benefactress an there was no mistaking his gratitude But one morning to tho great surprise of Mother 1lncus a young lad baboon came down from the hills an began to mako love to Stoffei Nearly a week passed before she flually trl utup hot and led him away The following morning however h returned and after watching him fo n day or two Mother Ilncus concluded that considerable business was up with his love affair Indeed th floors who relate almost Incredible stories about tho intelligence of thes colored baboons claim that the embassy of the maiden was merely a trick to seduce him from his al legiance to his benefactress and that on his first visit to tho kloof Stcffel was Immediately appointed to the leadership of tho baboon army ou ac rount of his preeminent Intelligence and knowledge of tho outside world Ono day a horseman galloped up 1 the store and reported that war ha broken out bottvccn the Boors and the Macatces and that the baboons In the pass wero evidently aware of the fact for swarms of them wore coming down from tho heights and wore preparing for trouble Tn days later the Boers wore defeated with considerable logs at Johannes Kop and encouraged by the tidings the Mapock Kafir flow to anus and rushed up the valley towards Slcelpoort burning and staying At their approach tho women and chil dren on tho farms fled In terror and lust before nightfall nearly 100 of these panicstricken refugees entered tho pass with a large commando of Kafir close nt their heels Tho story of the encounter that fol lowed between tho baboon nnd the Kafir is derived partly from the account of tho hoer women but prin cipally from a survey of the battle fluid on the following day A few of Reported That War Had Broken Out the hindmost of the refugees had already been captured when In passing through a narrow defile the Kafir were nisallcd by a fierce rain of atones from tho surrounding cliffs Undismayed the Kafir horde pressed on but the roadway beneath them had been undermined and when enormous bowlders railing hundreds of feet through the air smashed through tho thin crust great pits were laid bare Into which tho Kafirs floundered and were then mercilessly pelted with fusillades of shnrp pointed rocks But the real fighting occurred when the Kafirs filled with dismay at tho carnage that ensued In the pits en deavored to retreat On tho following morning a very pathetic sequel to the battle occurred when Stoffcl grievously wounded dragxcd himself back to his old home nt the store It was a painful and use IOIH journey for the buildings had been burned to the ground and nothing remained but the smouldcrlcg embers But Stoffei had como home for a definite purpose He at once began to scrape and dig among the ruins until ho succeeded In finding a few rags and n small bottlo containing soma liquid Tenderly ho stanched tho flow of blood with tho rags and emptied some of the fluid Into the wound Feeling no bettor from tho application ho sought other rags and another bottle Ills faith In tho rome dy was supreme In this way his eyes had been cured and in many other cases ho had witnessed the successful application of rags and bottles But growing weaker and weaker his thoughts naturally turned to his kind faster amther Despairingly he glanced from side to side Many a time ho had watched for her homecoming Then he tucked his pitiful face under his forearm and curled himself up just like n dog going to sleep Looking down upon him you

repeated assertions that he Bryan could carry out Roosevelts policies better than Taft can has at last forced Roose velt into a reply He has written an open letter to Conrad Kohrs of Helena Mont in which he makes his position clear and denies all of Bryans claims He declares that the great work he has begun should not be entrusted either to very radical men like Bryan or to very conservative men butt that it should be carried forward bymen who stand between and seek justice for the whole people He declares thAt Mr Taft is the only man with the qualities needed to do the workand that he could he do pended upon to do exact justice Bryan replied by saying that Taft had failed to make his position on the important issues known when it is well known that even the Democratic papers praised his letter of acceptance of the nomination for the clearness with which he stated his views Taft replies that Mr Bryan should put in some time explaining leis record and some smart fellow bremarkod that TAft is running on his record while Bryan is running away from his recordICAMPAIGNSincelthe make a number of speaking trips during the campaign the demand for him has been so great that Chairman Hitohcockof the National Republican Committee is find lug it difficult to arrange a satisfactory itinerary It is probable that leaving Cincinnati the first of October judge Taft will go to time Middle thence to the inter- mountain country spending the last week of the campaign in New I Yorkand other eastern states i MAINE MAJORITY LESS Maine went Republican by 8000 at the last state election the Re publicans winning everywhere but by reduced majorities The Demo crats see in this evidence that I there is a derided movement their way while the Republicans say that local issues chiefly that of temperance on which the Demo crats had the popular side account for the result and that there is no evidence that indicates any danger for the national ticket HUGHES WINS Governor Hughes was renommated by the Republicans of New York on the first ballot This was largely due to the influence of Pres Roosevelt and will result in n united party in Now York where the Democrats are badly split It makes thd state almost suruly Republican if there has ever been any doubt of its vote HEARST AND BRYANA most interesting fight is on be tween W R Hearst and Bryan and each has already called the other a liar According to Hearst Bryan last winter in the house of a friend in New York made the following proposal That if Hearst would support Bryan for President in 1908 Bryan would use his influence for Hearst in 1912 Bryan denies saying this or any thing like it Hearst repeats his charger And there they stand Many people however arc ready to believe the charge against Mr Bryan because he has largely lost his first reputation as a straight forward champion of reform and is now considered more a very able scheming politician willing to do almost anything to win his point It is needless to point out the dis proIposalBRYAN DENIES BEING J Bryan In a speech at Evansvlllo1 Ind denied the charge ot Speaker Cannon that ho was rich Mr Bry an says that his estate Is about 150000 The

was to transmit to my successors I am today twontyonc and have se cured n document containing the Infor mation This Is a copy Tbo original was written by my grandfather After the battle of Cerro Gordo I wont over the Quid to give aid nnd comfort to the wounded Among them I tolled a young Mexican or rather Aztec who was In a frightful condition Ho looked up at me pits fully with hIs mild Aztec eyes remind lug me of pictures I had seen of the emperor of Montezuma I called sonic men with a stretcher and had him re moved to n field hospital where he re ceived attention Then I secured his removal to a permanent hospital where he lingered for awhile and died Be fore his dosUiho told nip that hp was the last lineal male descendant of Guatdmotzln nephew of time Emporor MontoziiniH whom he succeeded You have been very kind to inc be said and I am going to reward you Then taking a gold locket from his neck he gave It to me saying Your reward is In that Soon after bo died I did not examine tbo locket till poaco had been declared Then I pieceeton something In the ancient Aztec With it was some writing In Spanish on paper which proved to be a trans latlon of the Aztec I knew enough j Spanish to decipher It It was dated lath of August 1B21 and rend Our city Is about to fall Into the handset the Spaniard 1 Quatemotaln emper or have hurled what Is lett of our treas ure under the northwest

cat he dral which partly occupies the area on which the Tuocnlll or pyramid supporting the sacrificial stone formerly rested When tbe City of Mexico fell Into tbe hands of time Spaniards they tortured Guatemotzln to force him to tell what be hAil done with this treasure but did not succeed Here was what purported to be his record handed down through more than three cen turies nut why had not any of till family dug It up and used It The secret had died with the last of the line who gave me the record My own ex planntlon wasthnt the treasure was luj tended to aid In driving out the Spaniards If over the opportunity should arrive I confess nt first I hud no confidence In finding a treasure but I was a natural adventurer and resolved to Investigate I found the house mentioned lu the note of record which was twilling but a dingy hovel It happened that the array had not been pail for months and tbe paymaster hall Just Riven us all that was due us My toy was more than the but was worth and I bought It It did uot require much time for the family occupying It to move for they bad nothing As soon as they had gone I bought a pick and shovel and the same night went to work The city hall originally been built on n lake and almost anywhere one can dig down through a soft black soil But the document said the treasure was under a corner of the sacrificial pyramid At any rate I found n hard Job being obliged to remove a mass of loose Btono I worked for weeks without finding anything and was about to give It up when my pick struck metal Ire moved tbo stones partly covering It and pulls up a gold god From this time forward I worked with encouragement and soon came upon other articles My work was necessarily slow as I was obliged to remove the stones and earth I had cx vacated piecemeal Finally I came upon one Immense mass of gold and jewelry that during three centuries had almost become welded together flow I got tbls treasure out and disposed of It without being discovered would require a great many pages to tell I melted tbe gold as fast as 1 took It out and In this form it was not hard to dispose of The Jewels were more difficult owing to their cutting which would easily be recognized In Mexico I sent them to other countries and many of them sold for fabu lous sums It was several years between the discovery of the first and last article When I was sure there was nothing more I retold the floor the house which I had taken up and locked the premises- In order to account for my wealth purchased a wornout Mexican mine and gave out tbat I was taking out gold In fabulous quantities I had many offers for this mine but them all Finally when I declinedI needed It as a blind I the vein had given out and work It- Througl1 my life I have kept tbls

personal neglect of his early training and does not go to church there is an impression abroad that people do not go ns much ns they used to but the church attendance is just as big and uni versal as it was when well when we wore boys The religious spirit is ineradicable as permanent an clement of our lives as the air we breathe or the ideals we aspire to or the love of good that is in us All history shows ita11 modern conclusions show it tho law of tho land stands firmly by it The church is just as availing in its spiritual power over those who do not attend it as over those who do Its subtle influence ministering in universally complex forms to men and women civilizJd and uncivilized is a profound undercurrent of modern livingPrecedent is our chief ally in spite of Ultra modern prediction and there is no power in all tho history of the world that has taken precedence over the people so great as the moral and spiritual doctrines of tho church Christendom is in born inbred in human nature and its holy places are the supremely tender judiciaries of human defects Thoro is always a reverse side to quality which arc its defects but those spots are tho clean impulses of human aspiration and do not destroy tho quality they merely emphasize its valueThere seems to be every indication that wo are approaching n time when the Protestant church in America England New Zealand Australia Africa lluparts Land will bo united in ono vast denomination But in any event the religious instinct in human nature the world over is undying undaunted People may belong to ono church or an other or they may wander away from existing denominations entirely and create a sect or creed or some other worshipful impulse entirely now and heretofore unknown but the human aspiration toward a divino quality in character is universal I believe that so long as clergymen preach in n manly straightforward simple way bearing always in mind the spiritual significance of their calling they will always have congregations I sec no necessity to adopt sensational methods to make any unusual or startling appeal from the pulpit Christendom needs no advertising tho Christian spirit is modest and undemonstrative the strength of it lies in the dignity of unshaken faith It is indestructible Laws That- Govern Mans Will By COUNT LEO TOLSTOI Vitalas unimpeachable When experience and reason have proved to n mnn that a stone always falls to the earth he regards tho law as infallible and always expects it to be accomplished But when lie is taught in the samo way that his will is subject to laws he door not believe it and cannot believe it Experience and reason may prove to man time and again that under the same conditions and with tho same temperament ho always will act ill the same way but when for the thousandth time he begins to act under the specified conditions with tom perament unchanged he is just as sure as he was in the first place to oct in accordance with his own will Every man whether he be a philosopher or n savage may know by experience and reason there cannot possibly be two different actions under precisely the same conditions and yet if he did not believe in the absurd possibility which is the essence of free will ho would believe life itself to be impossibleAlthough seems impossible he feels sure that it is true for if he cannot have free will he cannot understand life and lie cannot live a single instant All the aspirations of men all their reasons for living tend in reality to augment their freedom of action Riches and poverty fame and obscurity power and subjection strength and weakness health and disease knowledge and ignorance toil and pleasure feasting and hunger virtue arid vice are only so many varying degrees of liberty When we consider the consciousness ofn free immutable and su preme will subject neither to experience nor reason acknowledged bail thinkers and known to all men necessary oven to their existence we must look at the question in another way According to jurisprudence the actions of men are subject to general laws discoverable by statistics and the question is What in mans responsibility to society because of his consciousness of free will According to ethics man is dependent upon his natural temperament and the influ ences with which he is surrounded and the question is What is the facul ty developed by consciousness of free will which enables man to distinguish between good and evil According to history man relatively to the life of humanity seems to he subject to laws that govern the historical life but outside of this re lation he seems to be a free being and the question is Must the historical life of peoples of humanity be considered as the product of the fall or of the involuntary acts of men Our idea of the greater or less parts played by liberty in any given act often varies according to the point of view from which we examine the phenomenon but every act is invariably seen to bo a reconciliation between liberty and necessity The greater amount of liberty the less the amount of necessity and inversely The proportion of liberty and necessity di minishes or increases according to the point of view from which the inverselywrelatedA man who after committing a murder has for 20 years lived a peaceful life in the midst of so ciety will seem to one who judges of the crime after
