"Is this nil you've got, madam?" ask- d the conductor on a North Side car as he scrutinized the coin in the semidarkness of the tunnel. "What's the matter with it?" she asked in such frigid tones that the conductor looked confused. "Nothing, but"— "Then if there is nothing the matter with it why do you want me t<5 give you another nickel?" "Nothing, but that"— he ventured jain. "Well, then, somebody else must bare given it to you. I didn't have a penny in my purse." "Yes, but you did give it to me, madam, and it's all right, but"— She had got red In the face. The other passengers were watching the outcome, and one youth who was standing craned his neck and got a good look at the coin. He grinned. She saw him grin. That broke what remained of her dignified and chilling patience. She testily snatched the coin from the bewildered conductor. As she was tossing it into her open purse she, too, got a look at the coin. The car was coming out of the tunnel, and it was lighter so that she could make out the coin. "Why, that is a"— but she was too much confused to finish the sentence. "Yes, it is a $5 goldpiece, madam. You gave it to me." "You might have said so," she murmured meekly as she fished out a real nickel. "Well, you see, I ain't much of an orator, madam," he said and resumed his march down the aisle, reaching for nickels.—Chicago Inter Ocean. "We Arc Cleaner Today. With regard to all the refinements of habit conveyed in the words cleanliness, sanitation and facility of locomotion the small shopkeeper, the mechanic, tlie very peasant of today, is better off than were princes .and noblemen 70 or 80 years ago. That little bathroom of poor Queen Marie Antoinette at the Trianon must have been almost as much an object of curiosity for its sin- ularity in her day as it is now for its associations, and certain it is that in all those vast piles of buildings at Versailles, with all their gorgeous magnificence, bathrooms were an unknown quantity. According to some authorities, Louis XIV never washed, a little cold cream applied with a cambric handkerchief serving instead. This let us hope was a calunmy, but in St. Simon's minute and detailed account of the monarch's day, from the handing in of his periwig through the closed bed curtains in the morning until several dukes and marquises had handed the royal night chemise to each other, the highest in rank placing it on the royal shoulders, and his chaplain, kneeling at a prie- dieu at the foot of the bed, had said his night prayers for him, no mention is made, of any ablutions, except that he was shaved every other day.—Cornhill Magazine. Age Told toy Teeth. "Men's ages can be told by their teeth as accurately as horses," said a Frankford bookkeeper over his luncheon. "I have found this out by my intercourse with salesmen. They come into the office, stand at the little counter, and when the proprietor is not in they entertain me a weary while with accounts of their business skill and merited success. Having nothing to do, I watch their mouths—their mouths that cannot be stationary. "Up to the age of 28, I have learned, a man's mouth closes and opens like a child's, and what teeth are displayed are the upper ones. At 30 the lower lip becomes loose, and the lower teeth are as much shown as the upper teeth. At 32 the tops or edges of the lower teeth are blunt, but they are still white. At 3-1 the upper teeth don't show at all. The lower ones' edges then are a pale brown. "And so on, as the years go by, the lower lip droops more and more, the lower teeth become shorter, and their edges grow blunter, thicker and darker. I have often wondered why it is that the lower teeth wear down in this way, while the upper ones don't do it, and why only the upper front teeth decay."—Philadelphia Record. Tnere "Was Sorrow There. The colonel halted his horse in front of a Dakota dugout and uttered a vigorous "Hello!" and after a minute a towheaded girl of about 16 years of age showed up and looked him over and said: "Now, then, what ye whoopin fur and who be ye?" "Can I get anything to eat here?" "Not a thing." "Any water for my horse?" "The spring's gone dry." "How far is it to the river?" "Duuno." "Please ask your father to step out." "Pop's bin" on a drink for a week." "And your mother?" "She's got the toothache. That's her cryin." "Haven't you got a brother?" "Yep, but he got snake bit yesterday and don't feel well." "Well, what about you?" persisted the colonel. "You seem to be all right." "Oh, but I ain't," she replied as she made ready to disappear. "I was to git married yesterday, but my feller |bt shot by an Injun, and it'll take two weeks to ketch on to another. This ar' a house of sorrow, sir, and ye will please to ride on and not ask any more fool Questions!"—New York Sun. PENROSE LED THE FIGHT. Pennsylvania's Armor Plate Interests Protected in tbe United States Senate. DALZELL NOW UNDER FIRE Japanese Courtesy. Dr. Seaman is an authority on Japan, and he tells this story of his last visit to that country: "There was a little incident happened while we were in port that showed the magnanimity of those people. A United States soldier was out riding a bicycle, and he was coasting down hill, when he ran over a man. They promptly arrested him, and he was taken before a magistrate. We all went up from the transport to see how things went with him. The magistrate heard the case and fined him $5 for running over a blind man. -' " 'What!' said the soldiery 'was the man blind? Here, give him $20,'< and he pulled out a $20 goldpiece and handed it over to the magistrate. "And what do you think they did? They were so pleased that they remitted the whole fine, or would have done so, only the soldier would not take it back, but insisted on its being given to the blind man, and then they gave him a diploma setting forth what he had done."—New York Tribune. Wonldnt Dare To. Mrs. Peck—I believe that every one bf the writers of these articles making fun of married life is a single man. I don't suppose that one of them was ever married. Henry—N-n-no, dear.: He wouldn't be writing jokes about it if-%6'was.— Buffalo Commercial His Opposition to tlie Grout Bill on the Oleo Issue Has Been Denounced by Dairymen and Farmers of This State. (Special Correspondence.) Philadelphia, June 12.—Senator Penrose made a big hit in the closing hours of congress last week when, he defeated the advocates of a government plant for the making of armor plate. The Democrats and some Republicans made a bitter fight for this scheme, which, if it had carried, would have been a severe blow to a great industry in which Pennsylvanians are deeply interested. The Keystone state makes most of the armor plate used by the United States government, and many thousands of men are employed in the industry. The proposition for the establishment of a government plant left in doubt the location of such a plant. It might have been established outside of the boundaries of Pennsylvania, in which event Senator Penrose recognized a possible loss of many thousands of dollars a year in wages to workingmen of this state. He submitted the amended clause, which was finally adopted by the senate and which at least tides over the situation and leaves the advocates of. a government plant little ground upon which to base hopes of the ultimate success of their scheme. As Col. Quay protected the iron and steel industries of the state when the Wilson bill was before the senate by his lengthy speech and successful filibustering tactics, so Penrose sized up to the needs of the situation in this emergency and blocked a game which might have resulted disastrously to this commonwealth. DALZELL FOR OLEO. An incident just before the adjournment of the house has been the subject of considerable comment among public men in this city. Representative John Dalzell, the pet and darling of the insurgents of Pennsylvania, took a decided stand against the Grout bill, which the farmers of the state advocated as the best measure that has been presented to block the sale of oleomargarine. The "farming and dairy interests in this commonwealth all advocated the passage of this bill, and they were represented by delegations at Washington to press their case. Now it happened that Dalzell, for some reason or other, was lined up with the champions of the oleo trust, and his opposition to the Grout bill has since been the subject of much criticism. He has been roundly denounced, and the insurgents have ceased to claim that they are the only true friends of the farmers. The game of fake politics that the insurgent organization of Pennsylvania have been playing for the last few years is about over, for the people now recognize the selfish interests that are being served in all this agitation. BARNETT ELECTED COLONEL. The election of Lieut. Col. James E. Barnett as colonel of the Tenth regiment, which has just been reorganized, is a complete refutation of the reports that were spread broadcast during his canvass for state treasurer as the Republican nominee. With the possible exception of Colonel Quay no candidate for office in this state ever underwent the experience which Col. Barnett had in his exciting campaign. He was made the target of the subsidized newspapers of the insurgent Democratic combine, which is now working the fusion racket on the legislature. He undoubtedly was misrepresented in many matters, but the most venomous and vindictive assaults were those affecting his standing as a soldier. It was made to appear that he was not a brave maa, that his men in the regiment with whom he fought were opposed to him on account of his alleged failure to do his full duty, while the regiment was in action. That the people did not believe these stories was evident in his securing a large majority of all the votes cast at the election, and now his old comrades in arms of the campaign in Luzon have, by a unanimous vote, elected him to command the regiment which went to the Philippines under the gallant Hawkins aud returned with a glorious record. NATIONAL CONVENTION SPIRIT. There is an atmosphere of stalwart Republicanism hanging about this town just now, with the hotel lobbies filling up -vith leading Republicans from every c tate in the Union. The national convp ition, which will open here next Tuesday, promises to be one of the largest attended bodies of the kind in the history of American politics. There are thousands of active Republicans coming here merely as spectators. They will fid everything in readiness for their comfort and entertainment. The city is Beautifully decorated. The leading club houses are adorned with bunting and brilliant electrical displays. The city hall has been decked with emblems which are illuminated by electric lights and strings of incandescent lamps have been run from the top of the tower to every corner of the immense building.. Chairman Manley, of the sub-committee of the national committee, which has charge of the convention arrangements, is here and says the hall is an ideal auditorium for a national convention. THE BEST OF ALL. This Rooster Wore a Scarfpin. The crack chicken story comes from the kitchen of the Golden Eagle hotel at Reading. It concerns an energetic young rooster that crowed and grew fat while carrying in Its gizzard a stickpin nearly two inches in length, the sharp point of which had worked through the muscular second stomach of the fowl and protruded a quarter of an inch on the outside. Josiah Barnes, the second cook at the Golden Eagle, was engaged in cleaning a lot of fowls preparatory to cooking them for the Sunday dinner. While handling a particularly fine, fat, young rooster something pricked his hand. He made an investigation and found a sharp pointed Instrument protruding through the gizzard. He cut open the organ and was surprised to find a stickpin therein. The pin was mounted with a diamond shaped piece of pearl on which was a gold letter "W." The young rooster had probably observed the-piece of pearl and, believing it to be an extra fine pebble with which to digest its food t had made, the mistake of swallowing It.—Reading Searchlight; ><', <- As down the stream of life we glide, And vistas open far and wide Along the way, .We seek the pleasures of the hour And, like the bee from flower to flower, Live out life's day. Or else perchance by care opprest Or weary work we seek for rest When day is done. Whate'er our imperfections be No perfect man on. earth we see, , Ah, no, not one. And so, contented with our lot, A peaceful mind and humble cot, From envy free, Ne'er strive with human pride to cope, But wend our way with faith and hope And charity. —C. S. Kingsland. Tfie Scarfet Spicier, Whether They Skated In Winter or ? Swung" In a Hammock In Summer, They Were Caught In Its Web. "Love, the scarlet spider, will in a night hang between two that have been apart a web too fine for either to see, but the strength of both will never be able to break it." Who was he? She hardly knew. A partner. She thought of him as nothing else. All the women were given partners as a matter of course. "Dick," their host had said, "will you have the goodness to look after my niece, Miss Blynn? Edith, let me present Mr. Kirkland." They bowed. They could not well see one another's face there in the starlight. It was a skating party at Lake Geneva, Wis., and two big companies had come down for a week of winter sports, throwing open the houses which ordinarily knew the sound of human voices only in the summer time. The two parties met the first evening after dinner on the ice. It was cloudy, with rifts of indigo where the stars showed, and there was a gusty) cold wind from the west. Now the ice looked bright. A silver ribbon would appear to stretch itself out waveringly, now it was shadowy and mysterious. Miss Blynn held out.her hand automatically to the man to whom she had been introduced. "I see your skates are on," she said indifferently. "So are mine. Let us skate rather slowly with a long sweep." A band began to play in the boathouse by the shore. "I didn't know we were to have music. It is a waltz. Now I am ready, Mr. Kirklaud." He took her mittened hand in his firm grasp. They moved, slowly and easily down the gleaming floor. They crossed the silver ribbon and entered the shadows. "We shall presently be out of sound of the music," protested Miss Blynn gently. Not that she cared; she and her new companion were moving along with perfect rhythm. "Perhaps if we listen hard we shall hear the music of the spheres," he said. "The shadows are black," she remarked, "and the wind is cold. After all this is too serious for pleasure. It is hard to be frivolous in a place like this See how forbidding the trees look on the shore and how solemn and menacing the sky is. This is a sermon— this winter night—or it is a tragedy. Let us go back to the house where the lights are burning." "There is a fire in the boathouse. heard your uncle say coffee was to be served there. But if you are too much oppressed. I wish you would listen to the tragedy a little longer." "Listen to it? I look at it. It is £ tragedy for the eyes, not for the ears.' They swung along together with fine momentum. They were conscious of their youth and strength and vigor. Miss Blynn gave voice to her thoughts in an indirect fashion. "Some people," she said, "are old and weary and sit by the fire and wonder if the winter will never pass." They both laughed at this—it made a harmonious but startling duet, that laughter, and It echoed from the wooded shore. "Some people," he responded, "go to winter and drag him out of his den and shake him out of his sulks and make him dance like a trained bear. 1 They laughed again, though neither of them had been witty. "I have been skating with you an hour," said he at length, "and I have not an idea of how you look." >'I have been skating with you an hour," she retorted, "and I do no know whether you have red curls or black elf locks." "Come to the boathouse," he suggested, "and see." They went in where the fire crackled and where their friends stood in groups drinking coffee and chatting. He undic his cap with its ear laps; she untied lier scarlet velvet hood. What she be held was a young man of 24 or 25, with deep set gray eyes, a dark skin, dark hair, heavy brows, a smooth face and a large sensitive mouth. What he beheld was a woman with a snow white skin, black eyes, melan choly and timid in their expression; a high brow, abundant dark hair and mouth that, essentially serious, broke into unexpected illuminating smiles. "It would be rude of me to say wha a service the light has done me," he said stupidly. "The light has told me a number of things," she responded daringly. "What?" he importuned. "That you have been a student, lov Ing solitude; that you are melancholy oftener than you are merry, and that you like a good book better than a good friend." "No, no; not the last!" She laughed and took the =up of cof fee he offered her. He took note of her gray skating frock, with its edging of fclack fur, of her scarlet velvet ves and little hood and the white, pensive face peering above her voluminous boa. She fell to talking with some others, and presently she flashed up to him for a second. "I was rude to you with my persona comments," she said under her breath speaking quickly. "Please forgive me I knew at the time that I was doing wrong." Before he could get over thinking now quaint a speech this was she wa gone. He saw her no more that night There was nothing, it would seem, In this brief association to keep him wak ing till dawn. There was nothing t make her hold her fingers close upon her eyes as if to shut out a vision. Th mystery remains always beyond ex planatiori. There is no definition t the magic word; there is no fashion in which the necromancy, can be account ed for. The morning found him eager to se her and found her wondering by wha means she could avoid him. Then .was ice boating, and while h? searched for her he saw her flying "by ia-one o skimmtne crait. 8lttinsr.,e£igt anfl * "' tearless while the great' white meat took to itself the wings of a reckless Dird. In the afternoon there was a musical, and he saw her sitting, demure and sober, in a corner .where he could not reach her, and later, at dinner, in all :he witchery of her gleaming toilet of white, he had the sorry satisfaction of j glimpsing her as she went down to dinner with another man. In the evening she seemed to flit before his eyes like a will-o'-the-wisp. He could never get near enough to speak. He gave up at length and went away angry and hurt, and the next morning a telegram came calling him back to town. He said to himself that he would meet her somewhere, though he was quite aware that her life was much more given up to fashionable pleasures than his own. But the winter wore away, and he met her nowhere. He could not think of trying to call upon her. She had not asked him to do so. She had seemed not to care for him after that first night, but accuse himself as he might of having been an infatuated fool he could not rid himself of the idea that for a few hours his soul was nearer to hers than it had ever been to that of any other human being. To be sure, their happiness and sweet intimacy had been hidden under badinage and an affectation of indifference, but they were there, all the same. Summer came. "I shall see her at the lake," said Kirkland, and he put himself in the way of being invited up, but she was not at her uncle's house. She had gone to the Canadian lakes with an English family. Kirkland concluded that he ought to see Canada. A man really had no business gadding off to the other side of the world till he had seen his own continent. He went rowing on Canadian lakes and nearly lost his life, but after a fortnight's patience he found his way to the lodge where Miss Blynn's friends lived. "Miss Blynn grew tired of our grim solitude," said her host. "She says Chicago is pleasant in the summer, though I myself have yet to see the time when I would call it pleasant, and she has gone back home to study something or other. I never knew her so studious." "She's restless," commented Kirkland. "I wonder why?" He put all shyness and sense of propriety behind him and determined to find out why. The morning after reaching the city he made himself gay in white duck and boldly called at her house. She was out on a porch at the rear of the severe looking city house and had made herself a miniature country seat there with palms and ferns and flowers. The hammock was moving as if she had just quitted it, but when he met her she was rising decorously from one of the chairs that surrounded a reading table littered with the midsummer magazines. "You haven't your skates on!" she cried mockingly, extending her hand. Her eyebrows went up and came down in a funny, nervous little way and the corners of her mouth seemed tremulous. "Is it necessary for me to have my skates on in order to recommend my self to your favor?" he inquired. "I cannot tell," she responded, "till 1 see how well you converse in Oxforc ties and summer ducks." They talked nonsense like this foi half an hour, but both of them were desiring to keep still and enjoy the happiness of being together again. Neithei had the courage to become serious. He arose finally. "I know how impertinent I have been in calling," he said. "It is justified only by—by i_y temptation." •''We can resist everything but temptation, a clever man once said," smiled Miss Blynn. "Tht'n 1 mf " come again?" "You m:i\ t-^rne—in two weeks." "I am coming" in a week or not at all." "Then let it be in a week," she laughed. But it was not a week. It was three days. "I've been miserable for seven months through not seeing you," he explained. "I won't stand it any longei unless you condemn me to it." Her eyebrows went up and down in that curious way of hers. "I shan't condemn you to it," she said, "because—well, because I came back from Canada, because—well"— "Well, why?" "Because it was such a long way from—from Chicago." But something in the accent of the speech made it personal and precious to Kirkland. And he lifted her hand to his lips.—Chicago Tribune. A Flattering Indorsement. Father (to son who has recently entered the practice of law)—Well, my boy, are you making any headway in your profession? Son—Am I? Well, I think I have a right to consider myself an adept now. Father—Indeed! What experience have you had to justify that confidence? Son—A man called me a liar today, and he was a pretty good judge too.— Boston Courier. HIS PROPOSAL. She knew he loved her by each glance, Though he'd not spoken; His hand's quick pressure in the dancs, Each flower and token. She waited for the story old As she had read it, But though his eyes the legend told He never said it! He sang to her in y^rses sweet. His accents siwd her; He played the banjo at her feet, In ragtime wooed her; On smooth yacht decks all golden glow. Where starlight blended, Till she began to think him slow As well as splendid! She led him into quiet nooks, On stairs, demurely, Where lights were low and tender looks Might pass securely, And when the band throbbed some deep hymn Or old song story She steered him gently for the dim Conservatory! But in a crowded cable car One rainy morning They rode with many a jolt and jar, The weather scorning, Till swerving round a curve she leaned Against his shoulder, And safely by her big hat screened 'Twas then he told her! —Kate ilasterson in Saturday Evenig<j Post.

The most pathetic figure at a town meeting is the man with a claim. The man who has the claim or grievance goes to the selectmen each spring and j has them put an article in the warrant bringing this matter up. Some years he goes into town meeting himself and urges his claim. In other years, for the sake of variety he will hire some of the local lawyers to present the matter in the best manner possible. Usually the man is listened to, though the whole thing is horribly familiar to every voter in the town. Then, when all the oratory has been spilled into their ears, some long eared man from the back districts will rise and will drawl with a grin: "Move we pass over that article," and forthwith the article is passed over with a whoop. And the man is around next year as usual. It is a curious thing, but the average town appears always ready to repudiate these matters of long standing. I have heard voters admit that certain claims against their town were perfectly legitimate and perhaps ought to be paid, but they are of the coterie that regularly votes against granting the appeal of the petitioners. Why? Oh, well, it's "an old matter," and the town is Irritated by the persistence of the man who keeps coming to claim his own. When a town gets set in that direction, there is no repudiation so heartless and so conscienceless as that which marks Its notion. You see, the blame is so equally divided. Refusing to pay honest debts is treated as a joke. Even the man who at last with awakened conscience gets up and urges his fellow citizens to do the right thing and pay the bill is smiled away as a chap that means well, but doesn't know what he Is talking about.—Lewiston Journal.

"Women should not complain that they have to stand in street cars and other public conveyances," said an old gentleman as he laboriously made his way from the transfer man to the her- dic. "Children learn common politeness at home if they learn it at all. On the car that I just left was a handsomely dressed woman and her son, a fine looking boy of 10. The car was crowded when I got on, and the little man and his mother sat near the door. As soon as I entered the boy made a motion to get up, but his mother held him down. " 'Mamma, the man is lame,' I heard him whisper. " 'I don't care if he is. You have paid for your seat and have a right to it,' she answered him pettishly. "The little fellow blushed at his mother's remark. Now, that woman will probably read the riot act to the next man who refrains from giving her a seat in a crowded car, but what can she expect when she teaches her own son to be discourteous to the lame and the halt?"—Washington Star. Unchanged. The lapse of years makes quite a difference in things, and Rip Van Winkle was not to blame for feeling out of place after his long nap. "Everything is new," he murmured pitifully, the while a tear pushed manfully away at his eyelid. "Nothing is like it used to be. Oh, for the sight of something familiar!" Wandering into a store, he carelessly picked up a comic paper, more to hide his emotion than anything else. Suddenly he gave a cry of exceeding great joy. "The same old jokes!" he sobbed joyfully. "The same old jokes!"—Kansas City Independent. Write for free Booklet. Cures Drunkenness. Cures Drug Users. THE KEELEY INSTITUTE, 4246 Ftfti. Art.,' PITTSBUBe. PA.
