itself on the back but there arc two instances told in Mondays papers which so clearly prove that we have told the truth when others claiming good Republicanism have for one reason or another failed to do so that we foal justified in calling attention to them The first case is that of the charges made by Senator Bradley and his supporters during the campaign for National delegates last spring lie charged that Pres RoosFeHWaR using the Federal office holders of the state to force the State delegates to support Taft Now there appears the report of the National Civil Service League which has carefully investigated those charges and reports RR follows concerning the things which Bradley and which were denied by The Citizen at the time fc Charges of courclon of nfllce holders by tho President to Hocuro the nomination a particular candidate have been cure fully inquired Into but KVIDENCMTO SUSTAIN TIIKSE S WHOLLY LACKING Doesnt this leave the Senator from Kentucky in a nice position toward the President of the United States f The second case also has to do with Bradley with the stories which were mentioned in our Washington letter last week Those stories as printed by Bradleys papers and the Democratic sheets Kentuckyeitutatlonhave nothing of the kind that the President would consult him butwould stand by his own supporters and that Bradley would not be able to punish Taft men Now cornea The Louisville Herald which has been full of press agent stuff about Bradley and the pat ronage and makes this confession taking back all it said before rho PresldentdocH

away and it will be under stood that we are not trying either to assail any particular persons or to get out of any particular obligation we wish to discuss fora minute the holdups which are practiced under the name of charity about the Christmas season every year People in any kind of public life are the particular victims and perhaps the store keepers mostEvery one wants to be a little extra good at Christmas and yet a good many find that it costs to give money to the poor themselves so they hatch up a scheme to get the money from someone else Subscription papers are started children are sent out to solicit and organI tor the poor This is all right if the methods used are fair but too often they are not The solicitor goes to a store keeperher family hits traded with him or it is likely toohe cannot afford to offend her So he given Then cornea another and he must give again atid again till his forced contributions havo fur exceeded what he wishes and what is his fair share of the Christmas charity Ho is holdup by veiled threat or suggestive look and understands that if he does not give his business will suffer He is the mark which is hit by every such scheme he pays without choice and gets no credit and it is mighty little credit to the hold up man or woman Christmas Charity is one of the fittest things we havo a chance to help and all of us are glad to do our share or more if we can But to force some one else to give for us is neither fair nor Christian IN OUR OWN STATE Stearns Riot Leader Surrenders Burned to Death In Her Home Richmond Teacher InjuredFarm- ers

The writer dropped In to tho Houso gallery one night at about ten oclock and found exactly ova members on the floor and one of them was making a speech against the Payne Bill Last week Olmstead

thisn great host of cnaual workers tho despair of 6- 0clologtststho ranks of the tramps and tho yegg men are Iwpt full Indeed In this great aggre gation of men that tho city pushes forth each spring

tho at tempts on tho part of tho various railroads to abate eke tramp evil It appears to be Irrepressible As fast OB It is subdued on one road It Is sure to break out on another with increased force Tho gay oat Is the lowest order of the perlpa tcjtlo underworld Ho is generally devitalized in competent and lacking in physical courage Thoro fort lie Bxcaks into an empty box car and makes his Journey slowly but in comparative comfort The professional hobo and some of the yegg men on tbo other hand scorn the freights and disdain to redo on anything but passenger trains especially the mucb advertised limited flyers so they can boast about it afterward and vaunt thorn selves around tho campfires of tholr kind There are not a few gay cats however who travel on passenger trains and these are curiously enough those whose trade is setting the steel on big halidlnee or bridges men of nerve and daring Theao rMo either blind baggago between tho front doorlcsfl end of the baggage car and the locomotive tender or on the trucks of tho wheels under tho cars themselves Riding blind bag gage rs comparatively comfortable but tho riders are fliftle to have lumps of coal thrown at them by the firemen Holding down tho rods though Vhlch Is one of tho slang terms for riding the trucks Is more dangerous and dirty but less subject to rntcmption en route It is when tho train takes a curve at high speed that the gay cat the i ltd ing on tho trucks goes on his last and lotisCBl Jonrney Sleep or hunger or fatigue may loosen his grasp for a second and ho goes under the fcurrylng wheels This manner ofdeath Is called greasing the rails which is quite graphic enough to warrant avoiding further de scription Thousands of gay cats and others risk their lives blindly in this way every hour of Use 24 This item In tho butchers bill of the rail ways Is oncrmoas Thoro aro soma travelers tales that have been told eo often by gay cats and by tramps that tKry havo become traditionalmost classics of their kind Ono is the story of a man now known as Portland Shorty Ho was a gay cat riding the trucks on a fast passenger train in tho west soma years ago There was a bad wreck during the night and many were killed Shorty cov ered with dirt nnd blood and really very seriously hurt finally succeeded In extricating himself from the wreck and crawled out By that time it was daylight Mil tho relief

for life It ho lives Better settle with him as well as yon can ho bead tho surgeon whisper to tho claim agent Sborty signed a waiver of damages in side of ten minutes and got 3600 In cash He vns taken to the companys hospital cared for red sued Strangely enough he kept his money I 1 jsjTh3D71jii TIll1 EWDTII 11 Now ho Is running a largo and gaudy saloon in Portland Ore and trying to forget that ho over rode the trucks on a fast train Tho men who ride thus on the passenger trains ifthey do much of Itsoon grow deaf in one car or blind In one eye sometimes to tally deafand sightless This is caused by the terrific roar of tho wheels againsttho rails and tho continuous hur ricane of dust and gravel Many tramps try to protect their heads and faces In some way but It is impossible to avoid the danger of bursted ear drums or hopelessly damaged eyes When a man crawls out from under a fast train after a 200 milo run ho looks but little like a human be ingDuring the summer the gay cat works with such persistence as nature has given him If he cannot find work he is not above begging or steal lag In many cases Long ago tho farmers used to lodge and feed them in their own houses Now they make them lodge In abandoned barns or In open air camps At berry or hoppicking they are paid by the quantity gathered in tho harvest or bay fields they receive the minimum of a dollar a day and their food In a camp of gay cats at night they gather around tho fire and play cards for small stakes or tell stories Sometimes a gay cats money goes in gambling but he Is oftener despoiled by the professional hobo who takes his coin away from him by brute force Ono brawny ablebodied tramp with or without a gun will stick up and rob a group of several gay cats without much difficulty The tramps roost too by the way is often held up and robbed In turn by the prowling yeggman with a pistol of large caliber in his fist At any rate the poor gay cat returns to the cities in the autumn as penniless as when be left it In the early summer If by any chance ho has any money loft it goes In the cheap saloons along the tough streets During the winter ho keeps soul and body together by washing dishes or acting as waiter In tho cheap restaurants by doing odd Jobs such as carrying signs and snow shoveling by addressing envelopes if he can write well enoughand by doing other such hopeless work Then too there are the missions and pickings and stealings now and then when there is not too much risk of arrest A portion of the gay cats are dish washers in tho cheap restaurants They work from 15 to 18 hours a day for an average wage of three dollars a week and food and lodging Their surroundings nro very bad Their feet are almost constantly wet with water heavily charged with washing soda that is used to cleanse the greasy dishes nnd the air 13 as foul as can be Imagined Tho poor gay cat misnomer devitalized by heredi tary ills and dissipation soon gets to tho end of his moral tether Of all the legitimate work thero Is dishwashing In n cheap restaurant Is the lowest There Is no depth beyond It and tho only sequence Is tho city hospital the almshouse the morgue and the potters field Other less industrious gay cats spend the- o winter In Jail or In tho workhouse The workhouse Is 111 named there Is no work to be done there Others work tho missionsnr- ound tho Horn they call it There aro over twoscore missions of Tarlonl- denomInations In cIPDaI MA POXCfiR the city No outcast above the rank of a gay cat would think of entering ono The gay cat can get his bed and two meals by simply applying and if he pretends to be convert cd and gives testimony now and then perhaps he can get meals and lodging for two or three weeks with possibly an odd Job occasional ly When the gay cat grows tired of ono mis sion or has outstayed his welcome ho moves on to the next There aro enough of them to last him through tbo winter If ho Is discreet The election is also a source of dishonest revenue to theso byproducts of an Industrial age Money shoes and winter clothing circulate freely then and the number of nomads Is augmented The majority of this vast army of 100000 or so are American born but of foreign parents The Irish and Germans bead the list of theso chronic wanderers Tho first generation apparently was hard working and reasonably honest The second seems to have a largo sediment of tho gay cat or tramp element In It Why this is so never has been explained satisfactorily Possibly It Is because the fathers and mothers worked themselves nearly to death trying to bring up their children on a higher social level than they them selves ever had enjoyed At any rate the fact of degeneracy In the second generation remains In Massachusetts many misdemeanors such as trespassing on railroad tracks riding In box cars tramping begging and vagrancy In all their phases aro punishable by sending tho offender to tho East Brldgewatcr farm colony Last year there worn over 3000 commitments to that In stitution Vagrants aro sent to East Brldgowater on indeterminate sentences tho maximum time being at present two years Until recently the maximum term was threo years but tho shorter terns has been found to bo sufficient In the case of first offenders release on probation is permitted at the end of ulno months if conduct has been exemplary It Is estimated that but 19 per cent of the men thus paroled relapse Into vagrancy in tho state of Massachusetts Doubtless many of them do elsewhere but more than half of them are regenerated so that Instead of be Ing a charge upon the stato they become an as set The East Bridgewater farm colony Is looked upon by penologIsts as an unqualified success So far as can be Judged now this Is the only practical way of regenerating and revitalizing this largo class of mental and physical Incompetents Llfo and work under proper discipline in tho open air do more to make good citizens or at least to transform parasites on society Into pro ducers than anything else BO the penologIsts cay SIGN OF THE CROSS ITS USE UNIVERSALTHROUGHOUT Grave and Aged Young and Giddy Are Alike In Their Frequent Em

the growth of tho church 1 in Jerusalem 2 in Samarla 3 in nil Judea The rest of tho year we ahi nile be occupied with Paul who was ly instrumental in extending tho church over the world Lot us first take a general view of this great man Ho was named Saul after the first RomPan from his Roman citizenship and w probably used from boyhood along atIjourneys into the Roman provinces Asia Mirror where Saulos would mean Waddling but Paulus would bo a familiar and patrician name A very natural change Paul was born In Tarsus at i northeast corner of the Mediterranea- g was the chief city of Cillcia on Cydnus ten miles from the sea Paul declared it no mean city Acts 2139 It stood before tho world at tho entrance to tho greatest province of the east as a metropolis a free city InndIIDIble Dictionary Its university rival o of Athens and Alexandria It phiiosophosra ul now a slyh1e a of or splendorRamsay Ills parents whoso names are known were strict Pharisees Jews pure descent but Roman citizens a fact Implying distinction and weal Phil 35 Acts 230 Pauls m ners were those of n citizen of t world familiar with the habits of good society McGlffert When Paul be came a Christian ho was probably dis owned and cast off Phil 38 ho was poor and supported himself by to making In Caesarca and Rome appeared to possess means and to regarded as a man ut distinction lhatlt Is thought that ho had by time inherited from his fathoms tate Ho was educated as n strict Jew Ills family abhorred Grecian learning and would not send Saul to tho University of Tarsus though his writings show that ho absorbed much of Greek cIll ture When a lad of twelve or thir teen ho was sent to Jerusalem Ac 223 C3I where his teacher Gamaliel grandson of Hlllcl tho 1 of tho famous Jerusalem rabbis The Jews called Gamaliel the Beauty of the Law and generally revered h1 He seems to have had a liberal splr and there is a tradition of his conver sion to Christianity Paul said that his enemies said himself 2 Cor 1010 that his bodl presunce was weak and his speech contemptible Ho was probably she sad had some personal defect such as limping or weak eyes At Lystra elra quent and vigorous god Mercury and lie certainly had tho power of com manding mobs and of winning friends even among the most hostile Ho was deeply religious whole touted ardent energetic persevering broadminded affectionate lovable was great in more ways probnb tthan any other man ot human history Ho was a great traveler a great au thor a great orator a great organizer n great missionary a great phil opher All of this genius was yield In absolute consecration to Jcau Christ Ho Is tho Moses of the New Testament and the two stand supra among men Ho led tho Chriatl church out front the bondage of a nor row Judaism into world sympalhl es and worldrelationships and so came the human fulfillment of t highest thought of Christ for men Some of tho indications that Pauls eyes never recovered their full vision are his failure to recognize tho high priest when brought before hint Acts 235 The saying Gal 41315 that tho GalatlaiB would have plucked out their own eyes nnd given them to him Tho mo of an amanuensis wh he was poor The signing of his epistles In large letters Gal 611 It is probable that this dimness of sight was tho thorn in tho flesh against which Paul prayed so fervor ly 2 Cor 127 It must havo been a terrlblo liandlcap to a

food Is that substance which whoa taken into the body produces energy repairs the body builds up the tissues or maintains bodily heat Blood and muscle bone and tendon brain and nerve In other words all the organs and tissues of the body are built from the nutritive Ingredients of food With every motion of the body with the exercise of feeling and thought material Is consumed and must be resupplied by food Like a machine the body needs material to build up its several parts to repair them as they are worn out and to servo as fuel A study of food and the feeding of the body should include knowledge of the requirements and chemical composition and the laws and energy by which the living tissues use the nutritive material brought to them by the blood Study should be given to the preparation and cook Ing of foods to the hygiene the pecuniary value and the quantities to be eaten The most healthful food is that which is best fitted to the needs of the user the cheapest food is that which furnishes the largest amount of nutriment at the least cost la general the best food is that which Is both the cheapest and the most healthfulThe that nourish the body are very similar In chemical composition to those that compose It They are made up ot from fifteen to twenty chemical elements the most abundant are oxygen hydrogen carbon nitrogen calcium phosphorus and sulphur The elements are combined In a great Variety of ways in the compounds both the food and the body Foods are divided into two main classes viz organic and inorganic An organic food is that substance which is derived from the vegetable or animal creations and which composes all those articles that are essential to sustain the body In life and strength Organic foods are divided Into three classes viz pro telds carbohydrates and hydrocar bonsProtelds or nitrogenous foods are rich in one or more of the following substances albumen casein fibrin gluten or logumln The constituent elements of the proteld foods are oxygen hydrogen carbon and nitrogen The typical proteld Is albumen well known as the white of an egg The serum of the blood Is very rich in albumen as is also lean meat The principal proteld foods are IN WASHINGTON- Continued from First rage able to get these worse features thru As follows They gave coal oil u protector j which enables the Standard Oil Co to sell oil three cents higher In America than In England Think of helping out the Standard Oil Co like thatThey proposed to let the present very low tax on beer remain unrals ed although they had originally plan ned to tax it a dollar a barrel more This is the way the plan was worked t The Payne Bill appeared with a r coffee tax a tea tax a tax on gloves and knitted goods Instantly the news papers and merchants all over the country protested vigorously Such taxes are unthinkable at this late date in American progress President Taft protested although he was loath to break his carefully cultivated friend ship with the House leaders Letters from the people began to flood in from all parts of the country The leaders had expected this and they came forward Thursday with the an nouncement that they were going to yield to the wishes of the nation and remove the harmful taxes They ex pected that everyone would calm down thinking that the Payne Bill had been amended so as to be all right and that public sentiment had made its self heard and that the nation was saved Meanwhile they thought that the quiet little clause which gives away millions of dollars to the Stand ard 011 Co would go through unno ticed Also that the rich brewers of beer would escape free from the ad ditional taxation which they deserve But they were mistaken The public refused to be fooled PEOPLE HARD TO FOOL The truth is that the American pea pie are becoming educated on public questions They saw that the coffee tax was put up to draw their fire like a straw dummy hoisted up from a trench in the war time to get the enemies guns empty before a deadly charge When the dummy was lower ed they refused to believe the fight was won The reason that the House leaders want to favor the Standard Oil people and the brewers is that their word of 4honor is pledged to It Two weeks ago when the House leaders were fighting for their lives to control the I milk eggs fish flesh food of all kinds and the cereals among the vegetable foods Penn and beans are rich In proteid Milk is the earliest nutriment of the human race and in the selection and arrangement of its constituents may be regarded as a model food no other single article being capable of sustaining life so long The essential use of the protelds is to supply the material from which tho new proteld tissue is made or the old protoid tissue Is repaired They produce energy also for the bodyCarbohydrates known aa ctarches and sugars are composed of carbon hydrogen and oxygen Starches are widely s distributed throughout the vegetable kingdom They are abun I dant in potatoes and cereals The class of sugars Include cane grape milk with sugars honey molasses etr The use of starches and sugars is to produce energy and heatI Hydrocarbons or that class which lis known as fats and oils are com I posed of carbon hydrogen and a little I oxygen The principal kinds of fat used as food are the fat of meat t butter and lard but in many parts of the world vegetable oils e g olive and cotton seed oils are largely used The Important use of fatty foods Is for the maintenance of the bodily i heat There Is reason to believe that i fat helps the digestion of other foods I for its is found that the body is bet ter nourished when the fats are used asfoodThe inorganic foods are water and mineral substances The art of preparing food for the I table must receive special attention It is cooking that Is a branch ot wo mans education It has latterly en gaged considerable attention in Amer lica And there are many schools where young women receive this I kind of Instruction i Foods are cooked by the application of heat and according to the manner 1ln which the heat is applied The principal processes of cooking are termed boiling stewing steam IusI braising baking roasting and frying Boiling is rather an unfortunate manner of cooking It i overcoagulates protelds and renders meat less valuable as a food It is difficult to boll any food without boll Ing to long This Is noted in hard boll ed eggs In ideal cooking a thermo meter is used to regulate properly the temperatureThe i to be attained in proper I cooking Is to render more wholesome and palatable j House by electing Speaker Cannon and getting rules adopted such that they could run things as usual they would i have lost the fight If the Standard Oil and brewing interests had not stepped in and applied pressure upon- just enough members ot the House save the day for the Cannon toII Now the latter gentlemen are to show their gratitude and keep word by saving money for the oil and beer sellers i The pathetic part of it all is that j the tariff bill will be simply ripped entirely to pieces when It gets into the Senate anyway so that it makes little difference what Is done to it HouseISENATES PLANS I The changes In the Senate will be Important This week Mr Aldrich I has been in consultation with presl dent Taft and one result Is that the very high rates which the Payne Bill I would force us to apply against all countries who show the slightest discrimination against our products will bo used according to the Aldrich plan only when the President sees fit to use them For Instance Germany I makes our oysters pay a higher tariff than those from other oyster producing countries This is discrimination under the terms of tho Payne Bill but it is evident that it does I not make any real difference to us and Is no reason why we should bother Germany Under the new ddrich Taft plan we will be able to threaten Germany with the higher rates on goods sent by her to us or not Just as seems best to the presl dent This takes some power out of I the hands of Congress and gives it I to the President and so there maybe trouble In getting It passed but tho fact that it Is suggested by the boss ot the Senate shows that it has a pretty good chance of becoming law Ollie James of Kentucky distinguished himself last week by giving one of tho best Democratic speeches of the session He Is one of Champ Clarks righthand men and one of the most influential Democrat in Congress Clark has been showing the Democratic bolters who broke away from their party to support the ring rule of the Republican bosses that ho will not allow such performances from any man who expects to be known as a Democrat Some Tammany politicians and some Louisiana pro tectionists Democrats played false with their party at the time tho fight for better House rules was In progress The rest of the party has been very Indignant and shown more solid par ty spirit than usual In Democratic ranks in recent years NOT VERY CONSISTENT But the queer feature of the Demo cratic attitude is that the staunchest of them are hot for protection for the goods made in their district Senator Bailey of Texas says that the Democrats would not have a protective tariff If they could prevent it but that since they cant prevent It they propose to get the most out of it for their constituents And this is the general Democratic sentiment President Taft Is cutting down expenses of the Government right and left The Civil Service bureaus are being pruned severely There has been extensive agitation hero recently for a South Atlantic coast turnpike from Washington thru Richmond Va Charleston S C Atlanta Ga etc etc It is reported here that Pres Tart is planning to take his first Important step in carrying out the Roosevelt corporation regulation policies by a special message to Congress demanding a law giving the Goverumen the right to limit the stock of all railroads This is one of the most important measures which Roosevelt advocated and will be violently opposed by the grafters It may be that Taft will finally decide not to ask anything more than the tariff at the present session but if ho does he will demand the law referred to in his message to the regular session next fall The officials of the Internal fever ue here report that there Is a decid ed increase in the amount ot moon shining In tho Southern mountains They lay this to the recent prohibition laws In the South and expect that there will be a further Increase this year Tho greatest activity la In Georgia Alabama and North Carolina To show

Distribution with out acquisition dissipates money Acquisition without distribution dis sipates the man Dr Cuyler says What a young man earns In the day goes Into his pocket what he spends In the evening goes into his character Tell me how a man spends his money and I will tell you his character A faithful steward of money entrusted to him by Christ will be careful to consult the master as to how ho should spend it and thus spending money becomes an act of worship as holy and joyful as prayer and praise The Saving Hand Saving money is an important part of stewardship Wo need to learn this

Theodore L Cuy her removes the last of the famous clergymen of Brooklyn who one and two generations ago made that city famous Those were men of great Intellectual powers who exercised a wide Influence not only over their Immediate congregations but over the whole country Beccher Talmago Cuyler and others wero national and not local men and the exact niche which they occupied will never bo filled again because circumstances have changedThere are many clergymen of great Influence and intellectual power in the country but tho leadership of a few men is gone The Protestant Church has become to a largo extent Institutional Preaching is less a fac tor than formerly partly because the times call forth less of the peculiar eloquence and spirituality of fifty year ago and partly because there Is more education in theology la the pews It is not co common as formerly for people to go to church once a week for the express purpose of being instructed In things theological This mayor may not be a matter of regret but IDrpulpit for sixty years and was a power for good not only In religious affairs but dur ing the civil war was one of the little band of clergymen Including Arch bishop Hughes and Henry Ward Deco er who had vast influence through personal effort In changing European and especially British sentiment from friendliness to the Confederates to our favor Tho Living Church is stronger than ever even If its min isters may seem to be less heroic figures than formerly Times change and In them we also are changed DECEIVING THE EDITOR The difficulties surrounding tho fur nishing of reliable news to the public which Is an old story to newspaper men seems never to have sufficiently penetrated the public mind says the Minneapolis Journal The public having originated mostly in small towns where items are scarce as hens teeth as the frequent announce ment of tho editor relates believes that newspapers and all editors are In this unhappy state ot paucity of pur veylugs Out of its abundant good nature the public seeks to help out a fel low mortal by relating to him things partly true and partly false The ed itor not the Informant is subsequently held to responsibility- An editor In a Vermont town who has been cruelly hoaxed more than once has resolved to got some ono to share the editorial grief In pursuance ot this idea ho has caused to bo Intro duced in the Vermont legislature n bill making it a mlsdcaincauor to dis seminate false news This bill It it becomes a law will discourage the fa vorite rural Joke of announcing the marriage of some couple who are but slightly acquainted or whoso friend ship gives no base except in malice for the rumor that they will wed in the near future The country editor will thus seek to protect himself But tho metropol itan editor has another class ot per sons to deal with lIe too is pestered by tho purveyor of information but his dealings aro with the official class who seem to be not free from the universal human weakness to tell moro or less than the truth Con flicting official statements such as pro ceded time sailing of tho fleet around time world complete outwitting of reporters such as occurred In the Swettenham Incident in the West Indies wholesalo fakes such as took In tho New York World when It was In duced to print a garrago ot sensation purpotlng to be the Kaslers sup u pressed interview these and a hundred more like them make the metropolitan editors life ono round of activityThe popular impression that all is grist that comes to tho editors mill is perhaps responsible for some of the annoying errors which get into the newspapers It is assumned that tho newspaper will be glad to get some thing to fill up Tho picture oC the responsibility of the editor throwing away more than he prints and toiling to verity his facts seems to have mad but slight Impression upon the American mind OPPORTUNITY A remarkable Sonnet and its Remarkable Answer The following sonnet entitled Opportunity was written several years ago by John J Ingalls since dead when ho was United States Sen ator from Kansas The answer bear Ing the same tltlo is the recent work of Walter Malone who takes a

Try AT ALL DRUG STORES ON THE DOG A number of years ago In a town in northern Missouri a man brought suit for 200 against his neighbor who had killed his dog and engaged Senator Vest to plead his case The Senator made the following remark able speech considered the finest classic gem of its kind in the history of foresenlc oratory Gentlemen of the Jury Tho best human friend man has in the world may turn against him and become his enemy His son or daughter that ho has reared with loving care may prove ungrateful Those who are nearest and dearest to us those whom wo trust with our happiness and our good namo may become traitors to their faith The money a man has he may lose It flies away from him perhaps when he needs It most A mans re putation may be sacrificed in a mo ment of illconsidered action The people who are prone to fall on their knees to do us honor when success Is with us may be the first to throw tho stone of malice when failure Bottles Its cloud upon our heads The one absolutely unselfish friend that a man can have in this selfish world the one that never proves ungrateful and treacherous is his dog A mans dog stands by him In prosperity and poverty in health and sickness He will sleep on the cold ground where the wintery wind blows and the snow drifts fiercely If only to be near his masters side He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer Ho will lick tho wounds and sores that may come in the encounter with thoroughness of the world He guards the sleep of his pauper master as If he were a prince When all the other friends desert ho remains When riches take wings and reputa tion falls to pieces he Is as con stant in his love as the sun in its Journey through the heavens If for tune drives the master forth an out cast in tho world friendless and homeless the faithful dog asks no higher privilege than that of accom panying him to guard against danger to tight against his enemies and when death takes the master in Its em brace and his body Is laid in the cold ground no matter if all other friends pursue their way there by the grave side may the dog be found his head between his paws yes sad but open in alert watchfulness faithful and true even In death Then the Senator silt down lie had spoken In a low volco almost without gesture He made no refer ence to the evidence or merits of the case When he finished the Judge and the Jury were wiping their eyes The Jury filed out but soon returned with a verdict In favor of the plantlff for five hundred dollars CREED OF THE OPTIMIST EULOGY The Optimist Club of New York has been launched with a dinner where much good feeling of the proper sort prevailed It Is a movement designed to spread the world over a sort ot Ten Times one are Ten club as originally Invented by good old Dr Edward Everett Hale Here is a syllabus of the Optimists creed I will endeavori to bo kind at all times both to mankind and animals I will be courteous and considerate to the aged realizing that the burden of their years makes thelIghtest bur den seem heavy I will be gentle to women and little children with due regard for their weakness and frailties To the sick and afflicted I will be merciful and kindI will keep my trouble and heart aches to myself so that other hearts will not be burdened by the weight ol my misfortunes I will endeavor at all times to be cheerful and smile so that my smile may bo an incentive for others to smile I will endeavor to be unselt loh not striving for more than what Is mine in all fairness and realizing that other people have rights and deserve consideration- I will earnestly try to avoid saying unkind things to people and about them realizing that slander is a blow from behind and the act of a coward and I know that kind words have eter nal life In short I will try to make this sad old world less sad because I will never pass this way again Every influence Ignoble or unkind goes out from me like the vapor from the botUe and never can be recalled This Is my resolve and may the Power that rules the world keep me steadfastThis look a little millennial but It is practical When the club In cludes all members of humanity the Millennium will already have arrived of the clubs own inltatlve Who can say a word against such a high resolve as set forth In this creed It is not necessary to make formal ap plication for membership Everyone can constitute

willowy creature her face lit up with bewitching smiles her dark eyes sparkling vivaciously under her white plumed hat It is she whispered tho man in the automobile I never saw her in my life before but I know it is she 1 Tho rector and his companion come nearer They were about to pass the car when the girl suddenly glanced up stoppedWhy is my car I believe she said blithely to the rector Im to dine with Mrs Camperdown you know Goodby Mr Roden and tell Mrs Roden I shall see her soon The rector lifted his hat with a profound bow and walked on up the vil lage street while the girl turned to Valdean with pretty assurance This is tho Camperdown car is it notIn an instant Valdean was standing on tho curb beside her hat In band Of course ho said glibly It is anything you wish That Iser Let mo assist you madam Take this forward scat please beside the driver The girl was on tho stop when she hesitated looked tho car over doubt fully and turned a halffrightened face toward Valdean Her cheeks were flamingAm I making a mistake she fal tered Not nt all I assure you bo stoutly protested I am Miss Drummond you know Certainly madam Mrs Camperdown wrote me that she would have her automobile wait ing in front of the church butI think I know she said it would be a lim ouslneThe limousine Is out of order this morning lied Valdean cheerfully as ho gently pushed tho girl Into a seat and hastily occupied the ono beside her So it had to be this or noth- Ing You will find it ust as com fortable I think lie put the car Tn motion and it glided down the street with a soft purring sound Now he added after a pause if you will kindly tell me which way I am to go- Which way exclaimed the girl Why direct to the Camperdown farm of courseYes course butbut I havent the slightest idea whero that is you seeThe girl stared at him as if she doubted his sanity Perhaps you will bo kind enough to tell me who you are she demanded coldly Richard Valdean at your service My father is a wellknown banker in the city Sylvester Valdean by name Possibly you have heard of him I was out for a spin In my machine and happened to bo in front of the church andand there was no other vehicle In sight andand you couldnt walk I you knowI could not let you walk Ho choked In his eagerness and paused abruptly- I suppose I ought to be terribly In dlgnant sho sold suppressing her merriment but really I cannot be oth erwlso than grateful to you for this kindness You are Very obliging I am I sure Besides tho mistake was mine In the beginning Mrs Camperdown lives two miles out In the country and you are going in the right direction Mr Valdean Sho hesitated a moment and then asked Were you waiting for anybody at tbo church Yes I was waiting for you ho re plied simply For mol sho exclaimed- I heard your voice you know heard you singing that beautiful aria and I stopped to listen I knew it was tho volco of tho Easter lady and I was waiting there to see you come out Tho Easter lady You aro not wholly unknown to me Miss Drummond although I con fess I never saw youvntil today said Valdean slowly Last Easter I chanced to bo at St Marks church in the city and there I heard you sing for the first time 1 know it wad you for I could not be mistaken in the voice I did not see you nor was I ablo to find out who you were or where 1 IOU lived but your volco has haunted mo for a wholo year In my thoughts In my dreams you have been known to mo only as tho Easter lady but nowat JastHo checked himself and deliberate ly began to turn the vehicle into a crossroad leading at right angles from the ono they wero following Tho girl quickly laid a small gloved hand on hisarmNo nol she cried not that way Keep straight on Mrs Camperdown lives=Mrs Camperdown can wait said Valdean firmly as the car shot into tho new road at an increased rate of speed I am not ready to take you to Mrs Camperdown yet I have waited a wholo year for this opportunity do you think I am going to turn you over to Mrs Camperdown so soon T- Miss Drummond sank helplessly back in her scat Ho know she was staring fixedly at him and ho halfex pected an outburst of expostulation but ho did not turn his head Am I being kidnaped sho asked at lost and tho humorous note in her voice assured him that his bold move was being ValdeanscondonedIquick gleam Then you will let mo drive you to townIndeed it will bo a great favor to me I hope it is not asking too much of yonOh I shall be delighted And wo can dine at tho Red Eagle inn which is directly on the way and still get homo before nightfall Tho Ice was broken it was aston ishlig how quickly theso young peo plo arrived at a mutual and cordial understanding By the time tho Red Eagle inn loomed up before them they were chatting as gaily and unreserved ly as if they had known each other for Surely I Cant Be Mistaken years They dined cozily and happily at the inn consuming much moro Urns than was necessary in the perfyrm ance and then taking their places In the car once more they resumed their Journey toward the city- I was euro something portentous would happen today said Valdean enthusiastically as they bowled along thehighwayAnd anything portentous happened asked Miss Drummond curi ouslySurely Nothing could bo more significant than this chanco meeting between you and me But does It portend anything To mo it does It holds a beautiful promise It is the fate of the Val deans Listen Miss Drummond and the young man became very serious Easter is strangely mixed up with tho destinies of the Valdeans My father met my mother for the first time on Easter day My grandfather and grandmother first knew of each morningevening It was the tricksy spirit of that festival that brought my great grandparents together nearly a hundred years ago As far back as tho record goes tho members of my family havo all met their affinities at Easter time Will you contend Miss Drum mond Margaret that our meeting today has no meaning for the future She gave him a quick frightened look Then tho warm color streamed Into her face and neck and her oyos droppedMight it not mean be continued with desperate earnestness that we are both controlled by tho same fate that rules in tho Valdean family Might it not mean that you and IItNonsensol interrupted the girl but her volco was very faint and trem ulous Will you let me hope Margaret bo whispered again She slowly shook her head We have known each other so short a time she protusted We have known each other for live hours said Valdean looking at his watch What does it matter It is fate At least tell mo that I may hope Sho was silent a long time but at last she sighed softly and Ufted her eyes trustfully to his Yes 11 think you may bopa Richard DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS BETWEEN NICARAGUA And the United
