As time has progressed however it has ben deemed advisable- to take it out of the regular course and make it only a garnishment as it were of the rest of the college course We had spent several weeks of our life in Hhe study of the historyiof our English ancestors but this particular phase of King Alfred had escaped our notice Along with the rest of the school and of pie literati of Springfield we

for the publication of a mono graph on the subject th Ugh the prin copal declines to divulge the name of the company This change has also allowed Prof Thompson an opportunity to air some of his pet thories His he says in the High School depahment is only temporary and so any of the theories arid hobbys that he hiaygive express ion to while in charge will be corrected on the return of their regular teacher- His principal lecture has been on the descent of Handy from the knight created as he explains in th eighteenth year of the reign of the nowned and evertobe remembered King Cole Withno little pain he traces the descent of the family- throughthe second cousin of King Al fred s Great Aunt and thus forms at least a mental connection with Prof Colvin in his work By al complicated chart which we had thought to reproin duce for our readers but find too large the line of descent was earned down through five more generations from the aforesaid second cousin and lodged for a time in the

And it means t gitupandgit Senator Tillman admits that he talked too much The Senator has done many unusual things- in his time but this is the most astounding of them alt tiblf SundayClosing By EDWIN J WEBSTER Copyright by Joseph B Bowles Pat Weldon thickset redfaced with an air of dignity stood In front of his saloon an ominous frown on his face As the political leader of the Ninth ward the pivotal ward of that assem oly district Mr Sheldon felt that he was at all times entitled to the most respectful treatment It was certain that John McDowell the principal owner of the local baseball club had acted ina manner to lacerate the po litical leaders selfesteem- It isnt his refusing me season passes tnpnght Pat and it isnt his throwing me down when I asked him as a personal favor to give Tom Wilson a try as pitcher on the nine its the ingratitude of the man that jars me After all the trouble I took this spring to see that his Sunday baseball games wouldnt be interfered with and now hes trying to get up an opposition party in the Ninth ward fie was still wrathfully considering the matter when the evening paper was delivered He glanced at it languidly Among the local items was one relating to a meeting of the Min isters association Ordinarily Pat was little interested in the doings of this association But the report of the Committee on Sunday Baseball Games caught his eye He read it with increasing zest According to the paper the Rev Ezekiel P Jones a young and ardent leader in municipal reforms had been appointed ah investigating committee of one to attend the game scheduled fbr the next afternoon which was Sunday If Mr Jones found that the law was being violated he was to apply for warrants for the arrest of the proprietor of the team and the play ers As he read the resolution passed by the Ministers association a gleam of gratification crept Into the eyes of Pat Weldon political leader The good man who Is after the ball players means well but he dont know all the ropes soliloquized Pat I can let him take the leading part while I fix things with Tommy Evans the police justice The Rev Ezekiel P Jones of the Third Church and A Staggering Poke In the Ribs rPatrick Weldon of the Ninth ward therell be a team that will make Johnfiy McDowell think he is trying to a cyclone SJldeOBtePi When Ezekiel P Jones presented at the entrance to the ball g on Sunday he was politely but firmly told that he would not be adm tted McDowell had been forewarned by the action taken by the Ministers association While Mr Jones stood in perplexity before the gate he was astonished by a jovial If forcible slap on the back Turning he beheld the smiling countenance of Patrick Weldon of the Ninth Pat extended his hand cheerily You seem to be up against 110 said Pat beaming friendliness from every line of his rotund figure But Its all right Im with you and were going in and well get a bunch of evidence that will make these Sunday baseball people think they have run against a brace faro game Its all right Hes with me said Pat authoritatively as they pushed past the gatetender into the baseball grounds You see said Pat Impressively before the astonished Mr Jones had time to ask questions or regain his presence of mind you see lots of times you people have tried to stop the Sunday games and you were right for the law ought to be obeyed and people like McDowell taught a lesson But you didnt have some body with you to tell you how things ought to be run And thats what ani here to do You and your friends can put on the pious front and furnish the respectability required and I will hustle around and see that the police back you up And Pat brought his hand down with a reassuring slap on the knee of Mr Jones at the same time giving him a wink of the utmost goodfellowship and mutual under standingThe of the last few mlnutee had proceeded so rapidly the Rev Mr Jones had not had time quite to com prehend what it all meant A brand snatched from the burn Ing murmured the good man softly Theres no occasion for calling me a brand replied Pat somewhat ag grieved But let lit go at that We understand each otl er now Wait un til they have play d a couple of in nings so that you will have evidence Then hustle right over to the police station and call on the captain to arrest tie players Be sure he arrests McDowellAre certain fines will be im posed inquired Mr Jones a little despondently Baseball players have been arrested before and the police justice has discharged them Pat beamed with the air of a man who feels that his services while freely and cheerfully rendered are none the less essential Right there is where I break into the game strong he declared with a sincere appreciation of his own value When these fellows are arrested they will all be taken before Police youknowpolitics he owes to Pat Weldon hon est Pat Weldon he always calls ue All the boys suppose I am trying to steer you oft from making trouble about Sunday games Even McDowell doesnt appreciate that Im laying for him Now for Jhe first time tho Rev Ezekiel P JOnes began to realize the guile of his unexpected ally But the everactive Pat seeing no necessity for conversation after a plan of op erations had been outlined already was bustling down the steps of the grandstand on his way to fix things with Police Justice Evans Ezekiel P Jones reformer and reps resentative of the Ministers associa tion hastily wrote down the names of the players and of McDowell the owner of the baseball club and then hurried to the nearest precinct sta tion where he made application for the arrest of the offenders In the second half of the ninth in ning the police marched across the diamond under a fire of jeers from grandstand and bleachers and not theywereheaded by McDowell wrathfully denouncing the police the Ministers as sociation and the world in general were led to the precinct station There they were paroled to appear before Police Justice Evans the next morn ing The next morning Mr Jones reached the police court building before court opened As he strode up the corridors leading to thecourt room he met Pat Weldon The broad countenance of the new ally of the Ministers association beamed a Welcome He seized Mr Jones by the buttonhole and despite his wavering indecision led him to a corner of the corridor I saw the Judge yesterday said Pat in confidential tones and told him McDowell was knifing him in the Ninth Of course Tommy was wild in a minute Then I looks up McDowell Mac I says to him you know Tommy Evans and how he hates to have anyone delaying police court by calling for a jury trial Now Ive had a talk with him and when the cases are called tomorrow plead guilty and throw yourself upon the mercy of the court Tommy will see that you are treated as you ought to be And Mac said he would Pat and Mr Jones entered the court room just as Police Justice Thomas Evans a short fat little man who loved the sound of his own voice read the charge jMcDowell had a short conference with his attorney Then the lawyer with an easy air of confidence en tered a plea of guilty for consern and asked pi te mercy of the court McDowell glanced at Jus tice Evans A halfsmile was on the baseball face He seemed almost impatient he waited in full dischargeofBut Justice Tommy Evans had a look of the sternest severity He pounded the desk in front of him with a plump hand and halt rose from his seatAccording to the pleas of The prisoners themselves thundered the Ute tle justice they have been guilty of a most flagrant and open violation of the penal code The duty of the court is plain under such circumstances The sentence of the court is that Mc Dowell the owner of the club pay a fine of 100 and that each player pay a fine of 20 And let me tell you Mac continued the judge dropping into a more conversational tone that the next time you are up on this charge It will be no fine but six months straight that will be coming to youConsternation filled the heart of every player at the words of the little Judge But the bitterest cup of woe was that which fell to the lot of Mc Dowell The etiquette of the baseball world required that ho should pay the fines of the players as well as his own and this would eat up a goodly portion of the profits cf the baseball seasonIn corridor Pat Weldon a smllt of triumph on his face turned to the clergyman Did we beat them 1 he inquired gleefully Did we teach them to obey the laws and keep out of poll ticsAnd heres one more thing I want ed to speak to you about continued Pat stoking his voice to a business like political whisper Ive tried to do the right thin by you but of course in doing4it Ive queened myself with a lot of people who favor Sunday games Now It seems to me that the fair thing for you to do would be to get your friends to back me up at the primaries Tell them that Pat Wel friendIfciation to pass resolutions sort of in- dorsing me it would be a good thing

for n celebration of this kind is the use of a Chinese party If the entertainment takes the form of a dinner even a Chinese menuishould be served With the fad for Chinese restaurants growing to a wonderful extent in all cities of size it should not be difficult to ob tale the rice chop suey the various ways of preparing chicken the sweets and the tea for a dinner and the whole thing would be so odd that the very novelty would be appealing to the guests The china used on the table should ue of Chinese pattern and Chi dragonspagojdasbe brought into play with the chrysanthemums asters and other Chinese flowers i Dinner will be announced by the ringing of a Chinese gong and the table should be placed under a mam moth Chinese parasol with the dining room lighted with lanterns For the courses where this is possible make the guests use chopsticks If the host and hostess wilt wear Chinese costumes and ask the guests to do the same the dinner will be very realistic A Chinese orchestra

to use them A good plan Is to Invite farmers to bring samples of their milk and have them tested Look out for dirty wheat screen ings Only the use of a mIcroscope will detect the dodder and other

agent and facto factotum of the I Pennsylvania railway at Meadesburg Pa He was 19 years old full of ginger and an ardent patriot When volupteerswinds wended his way to JPjttsburg and enlisted in the famous Duquesne Grays Nature had favored this lad to a degree He was about five feet ten straight as an arrow weighed 145 pounds had brownish red hair blue eyes which Under excitement or emo tion became steely graYflQd his facet e ally wore a faint suggest1onof a BBUt iJ lWL He came of a military family many of Tils ancestors having written their names high on the countrys roll of hotor For the first three months Cheney was ass duous In his attention to duty and when his time was out he was an Original 90 day man he was discharged corporal The next day he reenlisted In another regiment and was quickly appointed sergeant then first sergeant and a short time later Gov Curtin commissioned him second lieutenant In the Peninsula lie was a captain at Chancellorsville major and later lieutenant colonel In Jhe Wilderness fights his conduct was so distinguished that he was commis stoned colonel and as such commanded his regiment until mustered out in 1868 Several times during the war he had been on detached duty and ren dered a good account of blmself in connection with PinkertOns secret service Be had Ijeen twice wounded sand numerous times face to face with the old man with the scythe Four years and six months of actual soldier Ing made him unfit for the qulet hum drum life In a small Pennsylvania town and when hewas offered a chance to enter the United States secret service he did so At this time the dutlesof a secret service man were numerous and onerous and Col Cheney had enough ex citing adventures to fill several vol umes Thievery graft and crime were rampant from one end of the country to the other and life was one continu- oUs round of pleasure for Col Cheney it being understood that pleasure jn lite case meant the solving of an intricate problem or running some crook to earth Shortly after the great transconti completedCheney tral department with headquarters at St Louis Things had been somewhat quiet for a few weeks and he became restless when one morning he found a note in his mall directing him person ally to assume charge of a paymaster case in Nebraska It seems that a major and paymaster of the army en route to pay the troops at some of the frontier posts and camps had been robbed of 75000 in current coin of the realm Most of the troops at this time were busy keeping hostile Indians in check and protecting the overran trains and could not well be spared to run the gang The robbery ha- occurred d near Smedburg Neb a stopping point between Grand Island and North Platte Cheney was In formed that a certain gang headed by one Buck Ewing was supposed to be Implicated in the affair but conclusive proof was not at hand He was to go there with a couple of good men fer ret out the case and when the time was ripe call for troops to make the arrests He left St Louis the same evening taking with him Sid Guthrie and Ed Lonergan two faithful operators on whom he could depend in any emergency Before leaving he balled on Gen B B Grlersbn commanding the cavalry depot at Jefferson bar racks and obtained a letter of Intro duction to Gen JJ Reynolds wh was in command of Fort NIobrara th largest post IINebraska This Iette- was the only of writing Chene had on la person It merely spoke o Cheneys being In the government servicenbt stating the branch an commended him to Gen Reynolds good ofllces The trip to Omaha and from thbr to North Platte was uneventful Stop ping just Icing enough to get wago transportation Cheney and his tw men ontfnued on to Smedburg reaching ther that night about dusk Smedburg was a typical frontier town every other building being a saloon dance hall and gambling house combined The inhabitants were those usually found in such places no bet ter no worse There was as a rule qufet at transient population due to overland caravans stopping to rest be fore continuing further towards the land of the setting sun Cheney Guthrie and Lonergan were dressed in rough western style they ere quiet well behaved Arid did nothing to attract any special at tendon They walked around the town sizing things up looked In one or two places and SQWthe games going on Incidentally they saw Mr Buck anda few companions haltseas over bucking heeledwithmoment of exuberation said there was fromRj 1 almost everybody did Cheney was convinced that that money telonged to Uncle Sam but personal conviction and legal proofs are far apart so he bided his time Youre not drinking stranger said the hospitable sportIWhy notf Not thirsty thunkfi said Cheney with life smile Well by God when I set em up every one drinks or settles with me In a flash It looked like a rough washeardpulltIJln putting an end to the im pending trouble The members of the caravan filed Into the saloon and were soon washing down the Nebraska dirt exaJlhllly afterwards retired for the night They were quartered in ones room In the Sunflower hotel Their bed was a pallet on the floor For awhile they talked over plans for the morrow when they would hunt up Loin Stock ham the sheriff sand prepare to get the gang and finally tired nature as serted itself and slept That Is Lonergan and fcheney did but briewas uneasy and restless He lay awake for some time listening to the sounds of the crowd Outside Occasion ally there was a shot or two a yell- a ribald song and iso the night wore on It was quite warm and after toss ing about for some hours Sid got up to go out for a breath of air He was gone quite awhile and walked down by the Sycamore creek Finding an In viting spot he took a plunge and just as the first rays of dawn came upover the horizon he started back to town He had been out about two miles and It was quite light when he turned the hill and looked down the street was surprised to see a large crowd o men standing around the door of the hotel and ina second scented trouble He had seen mobs befreand knew this one asbent on mischief Guthrie was a believer In hunches something told him this mob ha something to do with Cheney and their work He made Ms way cautiously through the crowd keeping his eyes and ears open and his mouth shut He learned that the caravan which fromCincinnatiof the members a boy 20 years old had about 1900 strapped in his money belt on arriving The caravan was camped just beyond the edge of the town and the boy had left his bucolic friends after midnight to go to camp En route he had been waylaid and half killed When he recovered conscious ness his money was gone and he stag gered back to town His head was pretty badly battered and when he half fell into the saloon where his companions where making a night of It he wasnt a very pleasant picture to behold In broken accents he told of the rob bery how two men had held bin up robbed him of his money and then beaten him supposedly to death But life is very tenacious especially In 20 year old youths A glass Of liquor revived trim a lit tie more How men you say asked his wagon boss V Two are all I saW faltered the boy The description he gave was meager Buck Ewing and a fiefr of his friends listened and the one who had wanted every one to drink with him earlln the evening snarled out Ill bet It was that chap who wouldnt drink with me He and his partner left early IIIthe eveningand his befuddled brain forgot there were three In Cheneys party For once too much liquor was a good thing In times like those just recorded rea dealterevenge LeYantso sway s peacedwas g to walk off his restlessness serveewa any partngangoCould you recognize the two roe who slugged you 1 asked Ewing of the boyYes I think I could the lad re plied The search began and each house was Inspected At Daylight they reached the Sunflower hotel Cheney and Lonergan must have been sleep lug like dead men not to have been awakened but the first thing they knew their door was thrown open and they were looking down rue muzzles of six hooters pointed at their heads Cheneys nerve was magnificent a o was Lcnergans Long ago they had learned when a man las the drop on yeu time nfs better to submit and play for Get nip growled Ewing They were searched their guns taken from them and when Ewing rett Gen Grleraons letter to Gen Reynolds he was amazed and pleased SecrJBt service men by God he muttered Well this Is luck The bor was brought forward and t hysterically said Those are the men who robbed me- Evidently theyve cached the spoils said one of the men Cheney and Lonergan were not say Ing anything but they were doing a heap of thinking Where was Guthrie all this time why hadnt he been taken with them The mob made them put on their clothes and marched them down QuicklyCheneynumbered about 200 He saw Guthrie and unobserved by any one a sign passed between them It meant one word soldiers The sign consisted merely of a badly made right hand salute Guthrie understood Cheney wanteo soldlers and there was no time to lose Guthrie knew Camp Mac Pherson was seven tulles to the northward Cheney had told him that last evening But seven miles Is a long distance afoot Tied to a tree a short distance down the street was a cow pony saddled and bridled Guthrie watched his chance and when the time was opportune un hitched the cayuse vaulted Into the saddle and was gone The mob were too much occupied with their prisoners fo pay any niciiiiuii iu this one rider As soon as Guthrie was out of sight thePNever had that been so ridden even In the wildeststampede The seven miles were covered In record time and Guthrie dashed into Camp MacPherson hatless and his pont cov ered with foam Capt Benson commanding troop M Ninth colored cavalry was just at his when Gnthrie was brought to him an- dhadtodbls story he yelled Orderly have the trumpeter sound damnedquickThe stirring notes of the trumpet rang out full and clear In the morning air And in a very few minutes some 50 brunette troopers were in line waiting the word of command Guthrie had been given a new mount and rode with Capt Benson Fours right trot march and then Gallop march and away they went Meanwhile down in Smedburg Judge Lynch was holding court In those days mobs bent on vengeance were not prone to be slow The prisoners were marched out In consistfchosen to preside This same Ewing knew Cheney was a secret service ma from Gen Grieraons letter He knew him by reputation to be a bad ma consciencedcrook Cheney wds after at this time Most of the car van were strangers All they wanted was an eye for an eye and a tooth r a tooth The bo had identified ibpth the men as assailantsthe mpb would do the rest and before more government men could get out there

crowd could be re unded up at one fell court was convened under a cottonwood tree vhlch later would b the gallows Th boy again told his story and said he was sure Cheney and Lonergan were the two men who had slugged and robb d him Cheney asked Him some questions so did Lonergan Time time was what they were playing for A good horse could cover seven miles to MacPher son in 30 minutes if pushed hard and Sid Guthrie would push for all he was worth He must eat the camp now Thirtyfive or 40 minutes more Against them was Buck Ewing press dent of the courd The evidence was all In and Chene asked to make a few remarks Hej talked 25 minutes when he was abruptly cut toff by Ewing The cour retired to deliber ate and the del beration was no lengthy about five minutes for de cencys sake The verdict was guilty sentence death by hanging time Immediately Cheney and Lo ersan knew they were mighty close to death They were not afraid of It but to die In such a way at the hands of a mob led by Tws barrelms prtsdoners were one on e hands tied and the noose place around their necks This time Lonergan spoke up an Chendmore and Guthrie would be back wit help If not well goodby The mob were Intent

class who see to object most to life in these wild The poorer women accept the disco m forts as pertaining to their life anywhere and the few women of the high er class who find themselves In this country rise superior to the small daily trials of life in a new arid unformed community The wife of an old army officer who surprised her son In Alaska by a visit found herself compelled to pass the winter in a to cabin 15 feet square which wks the best habitation her son and his two partners In the gold fields werja able to offer her She found the quarters rather limited for four persons but she
