And th* Question I*, H»d thirteen Any thlnr to ]>o wJth the Caset There was a commotion in the hot* •when the Denver stage came in, and th men who were playing poker in the bar room, and the loafers who were waiting for somebody to treat hurried to see whai was up. "There's a sick traveling man. He'; awful bad and can't go any further. Fix him up a bed and send for a doctor, some one in authority was saying. There were plenty of volunteers to help carry the sick man to a room, and soon a temporary nurse was installed and a doctor in charge of the case. There was nothing unusual about it He wasn't the first sick man that had stranded there, and would not be the last The only curious thing about him was this: He heard the landlord say: "Take him into thirteen." "No, no," he said feebly, "that is an unlucky number to me—don't put me there." "All right," said the landlord, "giv$ him eighteen, that's empty." And tne men bore him carefully upstairs. But the landlord had winked to those who had him in charge, and they had responded by an answering wink, which said in dumb show, "All right, we un derstand." So they carried him into the room with the unlucky number, and he, having faith in the man he had appealed to asked no questions. Indeed he couli not, for as they carried him into the room he swooned, and they had enough to do, with the doctor's help, to revive him. Then he dozed, and started up in feverish delirium, and called for people who were far away, and raved and muttered, and the landlord was laughing down at the bar, telling of his good joka in deceiving the sick man. "He'll never know the difference," hs said. "I ain't no patience with such superstitions, and what the eye don' seethe heart don't feel. Here's health and long life to the stranger in No. 13. They clinked glasses and drank. The noise of their carousal penetratec the room above, where death wrestlec with life in an unequal encounter. "What time is it?" The sick man had wakened suddenly and as he asked the question the clock on the mantel began to strike the hour "One—two—three—four," he connt« the strokes aloud. The nurse tried to dissuade him from speaking by shaking her head in disapproval and laying a finger on her lips but he persisted and had his way. "Five—six—seven—eight" The doctor held hia finger on the sick man's pulse and felt an accelerated thrill in its irregular beat. The sick man's voice continued: "Nine—ten—eleven—twelve" "Midnight," said the doctor, givin the nurse a warning look. "Thirteen!" "The clock struck one too many; it is out of order," grumbled the nurse. "It has stopped," said the doctor, tak ing his finger from the pulse, to which he referred. "Strangel I did not think the end was so near." Neither did the landlord, who had just wished the traveler long life. But the clock that struck one too many had been the strange instrument of fate.—Detroit Free Press. Some People Dislike Clocks. I loathe clocksl They are like your frank people who are always bawling un pleasant truths at you. As I lookup from my work just now and catch the eye of that brazen little monster on the shelf it almost seems as though it was gloating over the fact that time has the best of me. "Ah, ha!" it seems to be saying, "would like to keep your bloom a little longer, would you? Don't like to think how late in the day it's getting for some folks, and how near the bedtime ol the grave! But mortals can't hold on to youth; and they can't forget the inn where they are bound to sleep the nighi of death away, while my brazen tongue is wagging! You're on the lightning express that stops at no station, and I've got hold of the throttle valve, my dear!" Well, you little beast, go on with your exulting beat of passing time! Swing yourself loose and hurry us away to the sea as a spiteful tug tackles an outward bound ocean steamer! Some day we will get it all back on you, when we stand under the new heavens checked off with no meridian of time! We shall forget you and your paltry environments as completely as the summer forgets the winter or the sunshine forgets the storm, Meantime I would like to demolish you with a meat ax!—Chicago Herald. of the Sea. Some mathematician of leisure has been estimating the number of islands in the world, and has succeeded in counting some hundreds of thousands. He says there are over 1,000 island under the flag of Japan. Strangely enough, he makes no reference to the Thousand islands of the St. Lawrence or to the thousands in our own Georgian bay, some of which are of considerable size. It was among these beautiful wooded Httle islands that the Huron Indians took refuge when they were assailed in 1640 by their implacable foes, the Iro- qnois.

The Waterloo Courier gives a full description of the resdience Gov. Boies is building. Our readers will be interested in the graphic account: Last May Gov. Boies started the erection of a new residence on the corner of Washington and Seventh streets. In describing this new house we will begin as Gov. Boies did his life, at the bottom. The cellar contains eight commodious rooms, the floors of which are cement and the walls brick. There is the furnace room, closet, laundry and fuel rooms, two of which are filled with kindling that it took four weeks for one man to cut and pile. The furnace room contains a large, gas-tight Richardson & Boynton furnace. The laundry contains three porcelain tubs with hot and cold water attachments. The walls are plastered and whitewashed. There is also a dumb waiter in the laundry which runs to third floor and saves the inconvenience of carrying heavy articles up and down the stairs. On the first floor Is the parlor, a large and beautiful room with large French plate glass windows and small stained glass windows above them. Next is the sitting room. In this room there is a 6x9 cherry mantel with a fine French plate mirror above the shelf. The grates of this fire place are nickel plat ed and very ornamental. The dining room is 13x21, with a hard-wood floor laid with a border and polished, large windows, and a door with stained glass in it and on the outside stained in ma hogany and butternut. The dining room also contains two cupboards, one extending to the kitchen, the oth er half way. In the kitchen is a large bronzed hot-water boiler connectec with the range. The floor is of pol isbed hard maple. There is also a large sink, and an electric dial with a hand that registers the room in which the button is pressed. There is a back hall leading fi*om th kitchen in which there is an opening to the dumb waiter and a wash bowl The front hall is solid oak, while th other rooms on the first floor are imita tion. The front doors are as fine as a person could wish to see, with thei glossy finish and beautiful stained glass There is a dormer window in this hall of stained glass that cost $100. Thj bannisters on the staircase are elegant ly carved and are the most beautifu we ever looked upon. On the second floor we will first ente Miss Jessie's room, with its large 56x5' plate glass window and elegant fire place. It is also equipped with speak ing tubes and electi-ic bells. Louie anc Bert's room is across the hall and i equipped with night bells and othe: conveniences. The governor's room i further back and has all the ad vantage .of, modern improvements. On the second floor are five comfortable an nicely fitted rooms. The wood work on the first floor is sc mortised that the greatest shrinkage will not show, and very • highly pol ished. This gloss, which is calle< the satin finish, is one of the finest job ever : done in the west, and was done b; Derrick & Althouse. They have use< all the energy and pains possible in thi work and; with 150 gallons of soft oi and 14 of hard oil, have made a perfec job. The house is equipped through out with gas, electric light and water Each room contains a beautiful bronze* register and every bedroom a commodi ous closet. In the bath room there is a fine large bath tub and bowl, and everj convenience a person could wish for fo a comfortable bath, Our words can but mildly describe the beaxity and con venience of this mansion, and to whicl he is entitled for the life of labor h has led, To Heal Estate Men.
