PresIdent Nord Alexis has been deposed and is now safe on board the French train ing ship Duguay Trouin and Port au Prince is in the hands of the revolutionists General Antoine Simon the leader of the insurgents is marching up the peninsula with an army of 5000 and a new president General Legitime has been pro claimedAt last moment President Alexis yielded to the urging of those about him and decided to take refuge aboard the French warship A salute of 21 guns announced his departure from the palace Thousands had gathered there early in the day and they had surged around the entrance threatening to tear down the walls to drive out the president and his loyal followers As the hours passed the great mob became infuriated shouting for him to leave the coun try The mob was armed and men and women beside themselves with rage heaped curses on the head of the aged man who had been deposed from the presidency but who had fiercely expressed his determination to fight to the last So serious was the situation that the French minister M Carteron and other foreign representatives together with members of a special committee forced themselves upon the president who finally consented to withdraw Shouts greeted him as he stepped from the precincts of the palace and into a carriage which had been provided Mr Carteron carry- Ing the French tricolor sat beside him and the minister threw the folds of the flag over the shoulders of the deposed president to protect him An immense crowd of men and women had assembled at the wharf and the arrival of the presidential carriage escorted by a battalion of rfantry and a squadron of cavalry un der command of General Hippolyte was the signal for wild tumult and riot All along the route the people who lined the streets shouted jeered and cursed at the fallen president but when the landing stage was reached the mob lost all restraint The scene was tragic and shameful Infuriated women broke through the cordon of troops and shrieked the coarsest in sults into the very face of the presi dent who strove to undismayedIhands and feet against the soldiers who found difficulty in forcing them back In order to disengage him the troops discharged their guns several shots being fired During this time a space was cleared and Nord Alexis with French colors draped about him theI hurried aboard a skiff in tow of a steam launch his suite launchtthe skiff after him As the drew away three Haitien gunboats and the French and American warships in the harbor fired a salute to the fallen president Just as Nord Alexis was embarking a woman succeeded in reaching his side and drawing a murderous knife made a sweep at his body The blow fell short however and before the woman could follow it up with another she was seized by a soldier A man succeeded in striking the president with his fist but the blow was a glancing one on the neck Nord Alexis turned to M Carteron and shaking his head said I told you so your excellency A trunk which was left behind on the precipitate departure of the pres ident and his party from the wharf was seized upon by the rioters and broken open It was found to con tain some 10000 in gold and 20000 Haitien gourdes The specie was scattered about and promptly appro- prIated A catastrophe was feared If the palace was invaded by the populace In such event the foreign consuls were ready to have landed detachments of sailors and marines from the warship now in port In order to protect the interests of the citi zens of their respective nations A series of signals had been arranged from the consulates to the warships with this in view but as those who had taken charge of the government have also taken precautionary meas ures warship forces were not con sided necessary ashore r eka 1 v

Legitime While accepting the office at the first call General Legitime showed some hesitancy in undertaking the presidency at such a crisis He expressed his wishes to obUiB General Simons adhesion before dot Initely accepting the office The flags of the nations are flying over the doors and windows of the homes of the foreign residents for notwithstanding their exhibitions of hostility against their fallen presi dent the Haitiens are in dread of the landing of forces from the warships They especially fear the men of the United States cruisers Tacoma and Des Moines whose reputation for putting down riot and disorder have gone before them General Canal is doing everything possible to maintain order Infantry and caval ry patrol the streets and although a panicky feeling remains there

Deli t sate Sense ot Smell I7 If you shade the eyes you weaken your sense of bearing Try it with f u watch and the result will surprise you 3f you sip a glass of cold water you 3 JU Increase for a short time your jtOwer of vision If you till the mouth with water you wlll greatly strengthen your sense of smell Many similar curious facts about the tenses are told by physiologists made1Mbathe world every day for instance which we cannot bear however close they may be Every sound must last a Certain time in order to he beard by the ear If it is an extremely feeble sound it must last quite two seconds we cannot hear it But no matter bow long it lasts we cannot bear it if it is a very low or a very hlgb note Extremely small animals emit such high notes that we never hear them Some people cannot even hear the squeal of mice The lowest notes of- Zn organ are mere rumbling noises to most people and some cannot hear them at all It Is by means of the external ear we judge the direction from which sound tomes Stand facing a clock place your hands in front of your ears with the palms turned back close your eyes yon will then think the clock is behind 4 7eu Why can some animals smell more keenly than others It is a question of tie space within the nose capable of Helling In man this space is very jHnall less than onefourth of a square Jnch In dogs and most mammals it J0 very much larger The porpoise has JDO sense of smell Then comes man aBd also the monkeys whales and all kinds of fowl and birds with very feeble smelling power When peo jle talk of vultures scenting dead bodies they make a mistake Lions tigers wolves etc can scent them at Song distances but vultures depend on fceir sense of sight The sense of smell Is exceedingly del boo If one ounce of musk were di vided into 15000000000 parts one of these infinitesimal parts would be per ceptible by the average persons nose On the other hand many people have jw power to smell some substances 4ach as mignonette vanilla violets and prusslc acid Taste is curious In the fact that dif rent parts of the tongue appreciate Different flavors At the tip we per ceive sweet tastes best at the sides isr acld tastes and at the back bitter tastes Substances must be dissolved Jo girder to be tasted and a dry morsel to a dry mouth has no flavor This is why smokers cannot taste well Their mouth glands which manufacture sa riare paralyzed by the tobacco Very hot or very cold things are scarce ly tasted at all If you want to get tile best flavor from your food it must 1x at some temperature between 50- 4aad 95 degrees Every one knows how easily the sense of sight is deceived by optical puzzles But a curious deception Is practiced on us all throughout our lives and no one ever perceives It There Is a blind spot in the eye where the optic nerve enters In everything rwe look at therefore there is a little gap where we see nothing But no one Is aware of it because it has been the case since we first opened our eyes t In estimating distance we judge by the experience we gain In walking The eye itself cannot judge distances A near hill and a distant mountain Will each form an image of the same mounlaway be cause there are more intervening objects But we can often make an esti mate of distance in a curious way by the muscles of the eyeball In order to focus a near object we must bulge the lens and to focus a distant object we must flatten the lens The amount of muscular labor used in doing this r gives us an idea of the distance of the object A man seems much thinner In dark than in light clothing All black things In fact appear smaller than white things of the same size An image re mains on the eye for some time after looking at an object If the thing is longtimeiy at the sun yon will carry the image of It around with you for class- Color blind people have a defective Musical j nse They confuse different notes and curiously the confusion of green blind people differs from the confusion of red blind people Colors strengthen the sense of taste Red ap ples and tomatoes and strawberries and green pickles taste better than the selfsame vegetables and fruit when they are paler For feeling we have a variety of nerves Some spots on the skin feel pain some warmth some cold and some simple touch The tip of the finger has a much better sense of touch titan the forearm or the cheek But the cheek and the forearm are far whiteofbeat nor cold only pain alonebut the- zed lining of the eyelids can feel scarcely anything but cold The enjoyeteaTsr uld rereatPatn to the hands or itt i j BIG BOOST FOR GOOCj ROADS T Plan to Hold a Monster Meeting In St Paul In December Unless Something unforeseen occurs St Paul will probably entertain sometime next December the biggest good roads meeting ever held Jn Minnesota or the surrounding states George W Cooley state highway engineer li planning on such a meeting and if the necessary arrangement can be made as now seems probable it will be held The idea of holding a monster good roads meeting was conceived tfr Mr Cooley after the meeting recently held in St Paul to which the county com missioners as well as others Interested in good roads were invited This meet ing showed the widespread interest taken in the matter throughout the state He expected between 100 and 200 to attend but the attendance grew to about 500 says the St Paul Pioneer Press The same feeling has been shown in the meetings which he has addressed in the smaller towns throughout the tateJthE tanners com ing in to attend the meetings in large numbers and showing an active inter est in the good road problem- If the meeting js held it wilt cover the field thoroughly said Mr Cooley It will be an exposition of roadmak Ing machinery and materials with practical talks by men of wide experi ence in the various details of the work In a large meeting of this kind much better results can be obtained than by the smaller local meetings because in such a meeting as we expect to hold the manufacturers will have exhibits of all kinds of machinery used In road making and we can have speakers of wide experience at such a meeting which is impossible for all of the smaller meetings A question box would be a feature and through this means any one confronted by special problems in roadmaking would be able to get the advice of the men quali fied to give it I have not yet decided definitely on the plan but there is a general demand for such a meeting and if it can possibly be done the plans will be carried out Mr Cooleys plan is to eliminate the hot air talks about good roads gen erally and to make it an instructive meeting by having men go to St Paul who know about the practical details of roadmaking Those who will go will do so for the purpose of learning something about the building of good roads and it is the intention to meet this expectation fully The meeting will probably last one week The ex hibits will over stone crushers road rollers steel and concrete bridge work culverts and all sorts of machinery and material used in road building IMPORT OF GOOD ROADS Points In Legitimate Support of Build themGood farm ers because they render transportation of farm products easier they facilitate travel and shorten the time to and from town or city markets they are humane In that they lighten the draft for horses they make driving on pleas ure or business trips more enjoyable they foster a neighborly spirit through communication they are an aid to the federal government in establishing free rural delivery mail routes they are business promoters and a credit to AN ARGUMENT POE GOOD ROADS any community state or nation and finally are an index to the intelligence prosperity and activity of the people 411 these points are in legitimate support of the construction and main tenance of good roads says the South ern Cultivator Many other reasons might be cited In their favor It does seem anomalous that amid all our boasted national progress this great necessity of modern civilization should be kept so far in the background The nation needs better and more substantial highways and it Is hope ful to see indications that this subject will soon receive more attention from oUr national and state lawmakers than heretofore The importance of good rural righways is being more thor oughly recognized by business men and legislators than ever before and the farmers need no argument to convince them that better roads will Improve their business materially A Road Club The farmers of Pleasant View dis trict ten miles south of Eureka Green wood county Kan have organized a presidentThe club has eighteen charter mem bers In the district are eleven miles of road and it is the object of the club to have each mile properly graded rnd worked regularly with the road drag The club will hold regular meet ings to discuss necessary improvements md methods for work 1 urtAwJ HER HOUSE IN ORDER China Closet the Pride of Up to Date Housekeepers Heart One of tIle first things that the housekeeper to be thinks of when she has finished ascertaining the bare necessi ties of the liOHSphoId ute is the china closet and its contents f Few are the women who do not pride themselves on their china closet Well arranged and full of handsome wares it ranks among the best orna ments in the house But a common trouble is that each meal finds It de pleted for the table and the harmony of its arrangement destroyed Now silver of any sort has no standing in the china closet It should be kept in separate boxes In the buffet drawer and purely ornamental objects of sil ver silvergilt and cut glass ought to be confined to the buffet for properly the china closet holds only china glass and heavier clay wares In at least half the houses It is built into the wall This disposes of loca tion But it is imperative to have good shelves and plenty of them Sometimes it is possible to make the very high shelves answer by screwing hooks on the under sides and hanging there cups mugs and little pitchers Hang the saucers against the wall back of the cup by means of flat wire china racks There may be a double or even a treble row of the racks In filling them study colors as much as possible With saucers put the bIg- gest at the bottom unless this arrangement disturbs the color scheme Leave the shelf surfaces plain and cover them with heavy linen cut to fit and ornamented with a line 6f drawn work Heavy butchers linen is best and a pad of the same will safeguard the glassware shelf Claret jugs can be hung from the shelves A corner position is best for them Salvers and other flat things may go in racks at the back In that case the shelf needs a padded linen at the back like the shelf proper Test hanging things by swinging them so as to make certain they will not strike anything else Keep plates carefully sorted and piled size and pattern together Give big platters room on the lowermost shelf If it is not properly grooved for them tack strips of lath along it and cut the linen for it wide enough to go In and out Stand the platters on edge the biggest next the wall graduating them toward the front With a very high shelf space they look prettier on end the highest in the middle and get ting smaller toward the sides Make the most of every good bit and set in a row in front of the flat ones KITCHEN ECONOMIES Odds and Ends of Soap Utilized to Save Pennies The housewife who squanders all her odds and ends of soap should learn a lesson in thrift She is reckless because these bits no matter how small can be utilized In a way that saves more pennies than one would think If you are one of those who are careless in this respect mend your ways Gather together once a week all the ends of kitchen and laundry soap into one jar and all the ends of toilet and household soap into another Jar As most housewives use the same brand of soap year in and year out there will not be much of a mixture It will make no difference If there is as the result will be much the same It might be just as well to label each jar in a clear manner On one put Kitchen Soap on the other Toilet SoapWhen you have both jars full go to work In some Idle hour and shave these pieces of soap with a sharp old kitchen knife Have two pans or bowls for the purpose and when you are through with the soap pour into each pan two or three pints of boiling water Keep this water at the boiling point until every particle of the soap is dis solved stir it with a clean wooden spoon and when It becomes soft and thick pour back into the jars while hot and cover each one Put them away to cool and when this is done you will find each jar is full of a smooth even clear jelly This will keep for any amount of time The kitchen jar is left in the pantry and the toilet jar is put in the bathroomThis jelly is just as good to use as a cake of soap Some women prefer it For shampooing the hair it is far ahead of a lather A tablespoonful of it may be put Into a bottle of boiling water with a little bay rum if one likes the odor then shaken into a thick froth and used on the head Half the bottle Is used at first to cleanse the scalp and when this is rinsed off the other half of the bottle Is used to wash the hair itself Clear hot water is used for rinsing then a pitcher of cold water to close the pores and the hair is as clean as hQddoneNew Garment For the Stout Woman For the stout woman who would wear the new styles there is a com bination garment which unites a well known brassiere and knickerbockers The

The mass of soil and root can then be divided into three or as many parts as may be decided upon see Fig 3 this operation being carried out by the aid of a sharp knife cutting through the rhizome or rootstock carefully and cleanly separating the roots with as little damage as possi ble To make division shapely it may be necessary to detach sev eral single leaves with rootlets these being laid on one side for later atten tion The spare space in the pot should be filled with the compost above described care being taken that ample drainage is afforded with a few pieces of crocks broken flowerpots Firm potting is desirable this being attained by giving the base of the pots several decided taps upon the bench in order to settle the contents firmly and the soil about the roots The single leaves require potting in the same way in fiveinch pots arran ging the tall leaves in one pot the small in another This is an excel lent plan to obtain plants for differ ent positions the

the side table or in a fancy stand or similar receptacle treatmentbutwith a light stick or bamboo cane and tied up with raffia for a week or two they will speedily recover if kept from bright sunlight the tying up of the leaves being necessary to prevent their weight levering the roots out of position The final proceeding is to give the contents of the pots several copious waterings in order to wash the soil well round the roots but be sure the water gets away Sometimes it will be found that old plants make no progress This is usually due to the fact that fresh soil entirely is required the old having become sour from overwatering or other causes Immerse the whole of the pot and contents in a pail of water for one hour remove the pot washing away the old soil altogether then re- pot with new pot and soil As to watering the aspidistra requires to be freely watered in summer and spar ingly in winter It is preferred by some instead of giving several water ings to stand the plant in a pail of water for some little time allowing the pot to be wholly covered thus affording a lasting drink and this meth od is all very well when the watering of a plant is understood It is a com mon practice to place the pots in fancy vases or jardinieres this is detrimental to any plant as it hinders the air getting to the pot which is porous If however this course is adopted the outer vessel should be con siderably larger than that containing the plant itself to allow a certain amount of air to circulate between the two also it should not be forgotten that water must not accumulate at the bottom of the vase as this rapidly be veryInjurious Wagon with Low Platform idling Barrels Oldicicanectctzonp it f WESTERN CANADA AS SEEN BY A NOTED WRITER Emerson Hough the celebrated novelist who made a somewhat ex tended trip through Western Canada during the past summer grows enthusiastic in his description of The Last Best West which comprises the Provinces of Manitoba Saskatchewan and Alberta as allother writers who have ever visited that great country To extract from what he has said we find the following That black strip across the land scapeit was not the shadow ofa passing cloud but the recordof a plough These yellow gray bands were the fields of stubble already reaped These other bands of green of pale yellow of deep bright yellow they were the fields of wheat among which the binders were yet to do their work The centuriesold soil was finding its first upturned ex posure to the sun Surely the plough had come There is no more thrill ing wilderness just passing into the first loose fingers of civilized mans occupation 1ere was the wheat crowding up- he trail high as the wagon seat a drove through At the edge of of umbling cow mans unown- edbug occupied range we reached d snd plucked off ripe wheat in- hard crumpling out into the palm the ftmears o triplerowed kernels magnificent grain the food which the world must havethat grain upon which the whole civilization of the earth seems so strangely to depend for when the wheat has come civili zation has taken hold of the land never Onebwho loves the open air and the wild world cannot suppress a sigh of re gret at first thought of the passing plains at the thought of tine dead romance of the rancher but none the lesS there must come the soberer thought that the wilderness of world as well as the scant fields o the older world belong to the world and the worlds peoples Extended personal inquiry in th course of a long journey failed to discover one farmer who was home sick or discontented or who de clared that he was going back Old o Withaout exception they declared that they were not only contented but pros perous In most cases their one or two crops had given them their lands and their first farmstead buildings of rude comfort at least fully paid for and this land was their own No basement life for these settlers no for their children nor their chil drens children no rack rents n struggle with a worn exhausted soil no captouching to a socalled perior class Here was a different field for humanity Is there any dif ficultyin predicting the difference be tween the product of such fields and and those of the pent and huddled East7 uIt was a fascinating sight thi middle land between the old and the new Most fascinating ofaIt was the air of hope and confidence Some thing set the blood tingling in the veins No one here spoke of despair or discouragement Tbese men made no repining at their lots as frontier farmers Their sole and engrossing concern was the question of means of getting out their wheat to tbe markets for even in Western Can ada farming has run in advance of transportationIn as this one still travels as one likes across country paying no attention to roads al

the other day show j V ing the danger of drinking water k without boiling Dr Mathews of the State Board of Health called atten Ition to the fact that more people in rj Louisville die from typhoid fever in a year than die in New Orleans from yellow fever And when there is an endemic of the latter the entire country is aroused and radical step are taken to stamp the disease out In Georgetown and several of our neighbor cities there have been many cases of typhoid In Georgetown the citizens are demanded that the water- I risupply be cleaned out And much is being done to check the disease YWe do not realize how dangerous typhoid is until we have it in our Amidst And after a long drouth such as we have had the danger is doub led The very rains themselves in v crease the trouble The germs of the disease are multiplied and threat eall classes of our citizens The v jf farmer who gets his water from his Iwell or from a running stream is ina V the same danger as the city man v who uses the water system or the I cistern nVT We have heard many say that they jxe afraid of city water that they vould not use it but that their cis r terns are all right This is a serious stake The cistern after a long drouth is just as dangerous as the city water All water from any j source is alike full of germs of ty f rjpboid- I iHt Theonly safe thing to do is to boil all water before using It is easily done and once the house becomes accustomed to doing it she will use nothing else The old say ing An ounce of prevention iJ worth a pound of cure is a true one Unless this simple precaution is taken Jnaiiy a family in Winchester and Mark county will mourn the loss of some member And while we are on the subject of drinking water we want to appea again to the members of the Board of Edi nation to make a rule that all children must provide themselves with drinking cups All progressive eities have such rules in force in j their sfhoolsLast year the Lexing r sion d puitinent passed it The Hoard is composed of live men V intere d in the welfare of the City Schodh riome of them have children r V in the school The common cup used is the worst breeder of disease V V knownill know that

J Elie guessbrut the r urltljLife r I f I Commission anthe rural residents got IzrClark The Commission sug ested that in each school district of he State the citizens meetnot later December 5 ttie present week and discuss those questions and send their conclusions to Washington The President an iiie Commission are desirous that the farmer con sider their problems It has been made plain by the President himself and members of the Commission the object of the inquiry is not o solve questions of agriculture but of life not of methods but of man IJkind The purpose is not technical research but an ethical and social investigation v Plow to make life on the farm so pleasant that nobody will want to leave the country for the city isa plain statement of the question before the Country Life CommissionSome the questions suggested bv the President as worthy of consideration are those of public schools roads labor postal facilities and sanitary conditions All there matters are of prime importance to Kentucky farmers Our public schools are not what they should be and during this very week various friends of education are con ducting a campaign for education When it is remembered that Ken tucky is nearly last on the list of States and territoriesonly three being below herthe meetings might have much to say on this branch of the main topic That we are trying to improve matters is the one thing that saves us from utter disgraceOur are at once our greatest blemish and our greatest need A better school svstem will itself cure other defects qf Kentucky life Good schools will equip the individual to meet the tasks of life they will broaden his view they will enlarge his capacity to produce they will beget a more widespread respect for lawWe refrain from quoting the Courier Journal on the subject Out of a strong educational sys tem then we might expect an abun dance of blessings Good roads more capable and more contented labor and better sanitary conditions undoubtedly would flow from it Then there would follow greater social ac tivities to render the lot of the rural inhabitant one of less isolation a more enjoyable order of living a deeperinterest in others and the sof tening it would bring about a greater pride in ones self and the attendant stimulation of cleanliness good hab its and refinement and last but not least that which has been incidentally mentioned and which is at this time peculiarly desirable in Kentucky strict observance of the law and deference for the machinery of the law Ayerile school system is the verit able sesame to better life on the farm That might be in a word the epitome of Kentuckys reply to the President and the commission However the matter is in the hands of the farmei themselves who are fully capable and are well equipped for answering What the farmers say is of pro nounced value It ought to be helpful to the commission and instuctive to all persons engaged in sociological research FOR CIRCUIT JUDGE We

Congressman Talks to Tariff RevisersPleads For Old Schedule Washington Dec 3The consid eration of the tariff on wool woolen manufactures and carpets before the house ways and means committee developed considerable interesting testimony General Charles H Gros venor a former representative in congress from Ohio was one of the most Important witnesses He I appeared for the wool growers of Ohio You cant reduce the duty on wool as it stands witiout destroying the industry he told the committee The industry is now fairly profit able As an argument in favor of the retention of the present duty on wool General Grosvenor said that under the low rate of duty imposed on wool by the Wilson bill the number of sheep raised in one county of Ohio decreased from 153000 to 92000 within four ykear- sHepresentative Clark of Missouri later secured the admission from the former representative from Ohio that this reduction was at least in part due to the increased value of land in Ohio General Grosvenor claimed that the production of wool increased when the Dingley tariff was enacted He declared that a reduction in the tariff on wool has never made the price of clothing in this country cheaper although he claimed all clothing except the highest grade was cheaper here than abroad He claimed that there should be stronger safeguards against the importation of high grade wool at the valuation tf low grade wool General Grosvenor said he favored tariff revision and voted for it And my friend Clark he said favored tariff revision and voted that way yet we are both as far apart as to what we favor as two highly intelli gent statesmen could be Revision means to him the abolition of duty to me just now it does not mean much of anything except the reten tion of the duty on wool

tumult in my mind J g I passed between the bronze lions adtook my way down the street I was called out of my distractions buckyet cf cold water had been thrown over 7as I had proceeded not twenty feet Vwken I saw two dark forms across the street They had it struck me been waiting for my appearance for one not to join the other and both hasten toward the corner as though to be ready to meet me I could not retreat to the house of tie Wolf that loomed forbiddingly be Irfid me There was nothing to do but to go forward and trust to my good fortune and I shifted my revolver to Ike sidepocket of my overcoat as I stepped briskly to the corner Then I stopped under the lamppost to re cennoiter The two men who had roused my crossrtie street but slackened their pace otherfside I noted that it seemed a long way between streetlamps thereabouts I could see none between the one un ter which I was standing and the brow of the hill below Then it oc Burred to me that this circumstance might not bedue to the caprice of the street department of the city govern went but to the thoughtfulness of the gentlemen who were paying such d se attention to my affairs I der tided that there were better ways to pet down town than were offered by Pine street To the south the crossstreet stretched to Market with an unbroken array of lights and as my unwary watc1ershad disappeared in the darkness T hastened down the Incline with little regard for dignity that I found myself running for a Sutter street car and caught it too As I swung mm the the platform I looked back but 3Lsaw no sign of skulking figures before the car swept past the corner and Wotted the street from sight The incident gave me a distaste for tile idea of going back to Henry Wil tons room at this time of the night So at Montgomery street I stepped 1 into the Lick house where I felt reas onably sure that I might get at least erne nights sleep from from the haunt lag fear of the assassin But once more safe the charms of c Lfiella Koiapp again claimed the major lart of my thoughts and when I went to sleep ii was with her scornful words ringing iu my ears I slept soundly wail the morning sun peeped into the room with the cheerful announcement that a new day was born In the fresh morning air and the light morning light I felt that J BMght have been unduly suspicious and had fled from harmless citizens and I was ashamed that I had lacked courage to return to Henrys room as I made my way thither for a change fcioities I thought better of my di t ton however as I stepped withiA the gloomy walls of the house of mys tery and my footfalls echoed through file chilling silence of the halls And I lostill regret over my nights lack of courage when I reached my door was swung an inch ajar and as 1aapproached I thought I saw it move Im certain I locked it was my toward comment r I stopped short and hunted my re tqler from my overcoat pocket I Was nervous for a moment and angry at the inattention that might have cost me my life Who there I demanded No reply I gave a knock on the door at long xeach J There was no sound and I gave it f gash that sent it open while intlykept behind the fortification of the casing As no developments fallowed this move I peeped through tke door in cautious investigation The zoom was quite empty and I walked ill The sight that met my eyes was as taushing Clothes books papers were scattered over the floor and bed anti chairs Tile carpet had been KJurtly ripped up the mattress torn apart the closet cleared ot and beenzransacked Itwas clear to my eye that this wasnO ordinary case of robbery The search it was evident was not for money and jewelry alone and bulkier 1RoP arty had been despised The men who had torn the place to pieces must I surmised have been after papers of same lund v I came at once to the conclusion that I had been favored by a visit from my friends the enemy As they kid failed to find me in they had looked for some written memoranda of the object of their search is knew well that they had found t nothing among the clothing or papersr that Henry had left behind I had searched through these myself and the sole document that could bear on tie mystery was at that moment fast in my inside pocket I was inclined t- o4c t the idea that Henry Wilton had Chidden anything under the carpet or the mattress oj Jn any secret place l The threads of the mystery wet ried in his head and the correspond ence if there had been any was de stroyed As I was engaged in putting the room to rights the door swung back and I jumped to my feet to face a man who stood on the threshold Hello he cried Housecleaning asnin 1 It was Dicky Nahl and he paused with a smile on his face Ah Dicky I said with an effort to keep out of my face and voice the suspicions I had gained from the in cidents of the visit to the Borton place Entirely unpremeditated I as youWell youre making a thorough job of it he said with a laugh Fact is said I ruefully Ive been entertaining angelsof the black kind unawares I was from home last night and I find that somebody has made himself free with my property while I was away Whew whistled Dicky Guess they were after you I gave Dicky a sidelong glance in a vain effort to catch more of his meaning than was conveyed by his words Shouldnt be surprised I replied dryly picking up an armful of hooks Id expect them to be looking for me in the bookshelf or inside the mat tresscover or under the carpetIDickly laughed joyously Well they did rather turn things upside down he chuckled Did they get anything And he fell to helping me zealouslyNot I can find out I replied Nothing of value anyhow Not any paper or anything of that sort asked Dicky anxiously Dicky my boy said I there are two kinds of fools The other is the man who writes his business on a sheet of paper and forgets to burn itDicky grinned merrily Gad youre getting a turn for epigram YottH be writing for the Argo naut first we know Well youll allow me a shade of common sense wont you I dont know said Dicky consid ering the proposition doubtfully It might have been awkward if you had left anything lying about But if you had real good sense youd have had the guards here What are you pay ing them for anyhow- I saw difficulties in the way of explaining to Dicky why I had not or dered the guards on duty Oh by the way said Dicky sud denly before a suitable reply had come to me how about the scads spondulicks you know Yesterday was payday but you didnt show up I dont know whether my jaw dropped or not My spirits certainly did By Jove Dicky I exclaimed catching my breath It slipped my mind clear I havent got at our ahembanker either- I saw now what that mysterious money was foror a part of it at all events What I did not see was how I was to get it and how to pay it to my men Thats rough said Dicky sympa thetically Im dead broke It would appear then that Dicky looked to me for pay whether or not he felt bound to me in service y Theres one thing Id like explained before a settlement said I grimly as I straightened out the carpet and that is the little performance for my benefit the other night Dicky cocked his head on one side and gave me an uneasy glance Explanation he said in affected surpriseYes said I sternly It looked like a plant I was within one of get ting a knife in me What became of you 1 inquired Dicky We looked around for you for an hour and were afraid you had been carried of- fThats all right Dicky I said I know how I got out What I want to know is how I got in taken in I dont know said Dicky anxiously rwas regularly fooled myself I thought they were fishermen all right enough and I never thought that Ter rill had the nerve to come in there i was fooled by his disguise and he gave the word and I thought sure that Richmond had sent him Dicky had dropped all banter and was speaking with the tone of sincerity Well its all right now but I dont want any more slips of that sort Who was hurt Trent got a bad cut in the side One of the Terrill gang was shot I heard it was only through the arm or leg I forgot which- I was consumed with the desire to ask what had become of Bortons but I suspected that I was supposed to know and prudently kept the question to myself Well come along said I The room will do well enough now Oh heres a ten and Ill let you know as soon as I get the rest Where can I find you At the old place said Dicky three twentysix Clay I asked in desperation Dicky gave meF a wondering look as though he suspected my mind was go inp t f i1r t NorGeary Whats the matter with you Oh to be sure Geary street of course Well let me know if anyt thing turns up Keep a close watch on things Dicky looked at me in some appar ent perplexity as I walked up the stair mrsi mutTltYozsIaS to my Clay street office but gave some laughing answer as he turned back But I was in far from a laughing humor myself The problem of pay Ing the men raised fresh prospects of trouble and I reflected grimly that if the money was not found I might be in more danger from my unpaid mer cenaries than from the enemy Ten oclock passed and eleven with no sign from Doddridge Knapp and I wondered if the news I had car ried him of the activities of Terrill and of Decker had disarranged his plansI the door into Room 16 It was locked and no sound came to my ears from behind it I should really like to know I thought to myself whether Mr Dodd ridge Knapp has left any papers in his desk that might bear on the Wilton mysteryI my keys but none of them fitted the lock I gave up the attempt indeed my mind shrank from the idea of going through my employers papersbut the desire of getting a key that would open the door was planted in my brain Twelve oclock came No Doddridge Knapp had appeared and I sauntered down to the Exchange to pick up any items of news It behooved me to be looking out for Doddridge Knapps movements If he had got another agent to carry out his schemes I should have to prepare my lines for attack from another direction Wallbridge was just coming rapidly out of the Exchange No said the little man mopping the perspiration from his shining head quiet as lambs today Their own mothers wouldnt have

BETTERMENT What Is Being Done In Various Communities In This Direction A committee qf the board of trade in Lowell Mass has taken an Inventory of all the billboards in the town and has communicated with the authori ties requesting that the leasing of boards on city property be discontinued when the time comes for their renewal The committee says that the revenue received Is a trifle compared with the harm done to the beauty of the town Following the example of large cities and more recently many small ones Easton Pahas adopted an antispIt ting law and the measure has been signed by Mayor McKeen People who have been in the habit of spitting tobacco Juice over the sidewalks or on floors of public buildings will be placed under arrest and fined for their offenses if they are continued Notices of warning have been posted Conspicuous Improvements have been made this summer in the appearance of the business section of Utica N Y Newcement walks have been laid on Genesee and other central streets This has been the result of agitation started last winter by President Baker of the council who says he was led to give attention to the matter by his observation that whereas the city was spending thousands of dollarsup into the millions in factto provide proper places upon which dumb animals might travel the ways which humankind must tread were left In a condition un fit even for the animal kingdom Sunnyside one of the longest streets in Burlington Ia Is to be paved its entire length in the near future The street extends from one city limit to the other and much of the property abutting the street is farm land Al though the legal assessment derived from this property would not begin to pay the cost the return value of the pavement has been fully promised by citizens anxious for the Improvement and who are more than willing to pay their full share of the assessment- As a measure for the protection of the school children of New Orleans City Health Officer W T

ishedUnder an ordinance recently passed by the city council of Knoxvllle Tenn It is unlawful to put down any sidewalk in the city limits except of con crete The specifications provide for inspections by the city inspector and every safeguard is thrown around the ordinance to give the property owner a good sidewalk and protect him against any inferior work The park and cemetery commissions of Grand Rapids Mich have adopted formal resolutions in reference to criticisms that have been made against the superintendents of the public parks on account of their being engaged in private landscape work The board takes the ground that the performance of such work for citizens of Grand Rap ids results In the substantial improve ment in the appearance of the town and that when done for neighboring towns they are simply doing a neigh borly act which tends to raise the prestige of Grand Rapids in matters of outdoor art besides having a tend ency ta educate the superintendents and give them larger experience Pays to Beautify School Grounds There Is no way in which the taste of the community may be better dis played than in the proper embellish ment of the school grounds A few places are so handicapped as to be comparatively helpless but such con ditions are only temporary and even tually all may be placed in the line toward beautifying the one piece of ground in each section In which all arc Interested Well planted and well cared for school grounds are a prom inent feature in making any district a part of the town beautiful for few residents care to have their properties unfavorably commented upon by al lowing them to become unkempt when near a piece of public property of unquestioned orderly and ornate ape pearance Planting Railway Station Grounds The custom of planting railway station grounds is each year becoming more widespread and the observant traveling public is making its approval of the same so manifest that all lines must eventually take up this work or aiding in the city and town beautiful movement If the plant loving traveler will but commend the railway officials for their enterprise and foresight In embellishing their lines of travel all will quickly Join In the work of beautifying these places Spacious well planned depot grounds are as much capital to the cities and towns in which they are situate as to the corporation to which they belong so that munici palities should encourage and aid them in every way possible Deceiving Pictures The battle between the catalogue houses for supremacy is not being fought out by a calm comparison

fast it takes many a worm to satisfy their hearty appetites A feature of the warfare of bird on bug Is the system with which it Is carried on Nothing is haphazard but each species of bird has Its own field of work and In many instances certain fnsects to which It is partial In win ter when there seems to be no activity on the part of the Insects one might expect the birds to take a rest but there

creepers explore the trunk and with their long sharp bills dig many an insect from its winter quarters The woodpeckers have n work all their own The small downy woodpecker is good representative of his family Hfis bill Is strong and sharp His tail leathers are stiffened to serve as a brace Awhile he clings upright against the trunk lIe cocks his head to one side and his quick ears hear a borer under the bark A few blows with the bill and a hole is dug then a long outEfrom its resting place As Insects Increase with the coming of warmer weather birds return from the south to fight them One watches the cheerful robin hopping over the lawn He listens an instant then pokes his bill deep Into the ground Up comes his head and he has captured a worm The flicker though a woodpecker Is an

cemeteries we should lake and keep them as ornate as pos sible To this end the miserable so called monuments should be excluded and none but works of art allowed In nearly all burial grounds may be found repetitions of cheap and poor designs which add both monotony and poverty to what is already too gloomy and conventional All cemetery associ ations should so control the lots sold as to prevent any work of a tow order or poor design says a correspondent of the Los Angeles Times While the writer does not visit cemeteries he has a certain amount of compassion for those who do and as many consider these places In the same light as public parks they should be kept up to a high standard of excellence and embellished in every possible way The day will doubtless soon come when cemeteries will be abolished by law but those who favor them may stay the march of enlightenment somewhat by seeing that the entire tract Is really made parklike and the monuments kept small and unobtrusive In size and sim ple In design The whole effect should be of a garden not of a stone yard Many small towns have no tract re served for park purposes and the people have been used to regard their local burying ground somewhat in the light of a public square This idea should be kept in mind by those in charge even where a park or parks are present and unusually attractive A board of Intelligent directors should be elected who will exercise powers some what akin to those of a park commis sion and see that much of the same class of work Is carried out EFFECTIVE TOWN BEAUTIFUL Good That Can Be Done by an Ad visory Committee Some large towns realizing that all of their voters were not in a position to obtain Information concerning the business of the towns have adopted the expedient of an

year and report to the entire voting body Its findings and recommendations In that way the voters have laid before them in print an explanation of the public business a lucid statement of the purposes for which money must be provided and recommendations con cerning changes or Improvements Therein Is a hint for civic bodies in places where the town has not such a committee No better work can be done than the work of Investigation and publication The great majority 6f voters In the United States are In the dark as to what Is going on In public business and do not know how to vote except as they are told by the politi cians If they could have authoritative Information from time to time they would take Interest and there would be an Improvement In municipal busi ness Then the civic club can extend Its operations to the beautifying of tbe place to the Improvement of Its trans portation facilities to Its sanitation to the elimination of grade crossings to the abatement of the smoke nuisance and a multitude of other good things for Its town all of which will profit the place In hard dollars The club may even devote a part of Its time and strength to the selection of good men for office and the attempt to elect them Planting Railroad Station Grounds The planting of railroad station grounds Is a very Important part oi making a town or city beautiful and each year more

grounds give a bad first Impression and the lack of improvements or care is quick ly noticed by the experienced travel er for he has seen and noted station grounds highly embellished Time was when railroad gardening was a mere Incidental and the material used was regarded as such consisting largely of seasonal beds of flowers This style of work is rapidly being super seded by permanent all the year round effects Today the demand is for ex perienced park builders and spacious newIdais should lend all possible encouragement and aid to this work for it is the only glimpse the traveler gets of

Uncanny Trophies That Are Cherished by the Dyaks The head hunting propensities of the Dyaks are well known to the students of ethnology The leading thought in the taking of heads is the Idea that the conqueror could secure the soul of the conquered and add it to his own increasing thereby his courage and strength and consequently his reputation as a hero as long as the head of the victim remained in his possession It is therefore the custom of the people after battle to wrap the severed heads In a loose crate of rattan and smoke them over a fire of damp wood and leaves Then they hang the ghastly trophies in the houses in bundles having an uncanny resemblance to gigantic clusters of grapes each head forming a berry These war trophies arc considered by the Dyaks their most sacred posses sions and are guarded with the ut most jealousy and vigilance Their loss would mean not only a considera ble decrease of personal prestige but also the lossof a part of the soul that is of courage and strength- I have often had the questionable privilege of sitting under the bundles of heads in the Dyak houses as the seat of honor and of examining them closely Anakoda Unsang who claim ed to be my friend was not a talkative man but when roused from his usual stolidity would relate the cir cumstances of many a battle and victory In the past with apparent gusto not unwilling to declare his courage and reputed invulnerability H L E Luering in London Christian BITS OF MEANNESS Queer Traits Shown by some of the Operatic Stars The celebrated impresario Schur mann said it was a precarious matter to draw up an agreement with a star for each one had some strange little provisos which he insisted on inserting In one contract Tamagno exacted that he should be allowed thirtyseven candles each night in his dressing room Schurmann was amazed that even a great tenor should require so much Illumination but he consented When Schurmann visited Tamagnos dressing room he found only two can dles alight On another occasion he discovered only one Inquiries led to the discovery that the provident tenor saved up the other candles and sold them at a profit- Schurmann said that a small boy whose father was a great friend of CarusVs having asked the tenor for a signed photograph received as a reply Certainly go to my photographer he will sell you a photograph and if you bring that to me I will write on it whatever you like A great feminine star made a stipulation that all her baggage be carried at the companys expense duty free Somewhat to the surprise of the Im presario the lady

been introduced into Japan by the ancient bushi who found the basis for it in a Chinese text from which cameo much of their military knowledge Therein may it be read that the spy is the finest
