THE FIVE DOLLAR BEL. "What do you think of that thing as a capital to get nn education?" queried the young six footer from the west. He ox'. tracted a bill from a long, flnt pocltetboolc as ha spoke and tossed It upon the tabl<> In front of him. II wan a $5 noto that had evidently passed through few hands, and ret was no late issue from the government's money factory, for the dull, furred lines along the creases told of long storage in some tight quarters. With Its .whitened places along the folds and the remnants of smartness about the rest of ' Its lace, it bore a family resemblance to a gray headed, rosy cheeked, dead black mnstached police sergeant of the old ' regime. The young man of the east picked up . tha bill, unfolded it and leisurely, in- •pected it under the kindly glare of the Incandescent lights of the Sixth avenue -< chop bouse in which he and his friends ' were''sitting. Two "rabbits" boil disap- ' . peared to make arrangements for visions ' of the night, the second brace of fat . "tobies" had suffered seriously from draught, and half an inch of tobacco on • each cigar had bnrned into flaky Whiteness. It was a wet, chilling night outside; It was a cheery, warm evening within. And so the young man of the east was nothing loath to hear the tale of the $5 bill. "Idon'tknowwhylt was," quo th. tho narrator, "or just how it was that I came to fit for college. It was partly luck, and partly, I suppose, because my old Yankee schoolmaster, who had drifted west almost tho year I was born, clung to the New England idea that after the three R's came Latin, Greek and algebra In every well regulated curriculum. I pegged •way at them dutifully far three or four winters—school didn't keep there In spring or summer then, the scholars had -Other engagements _nt .that time of the . year—without much idea what my work was leading to, until when wo 'said our pieces' on the last day of the term, the old one took me aside. " 'WeU,' ho said, 'you're about fitted for college, I guess. Which one are you going tof'. "That was tho first I'd heard of college. First the idea scared me, then it tickled ma. Before I slept that night I had made Tip my mind; I'd make the venture. And the schoolmaster settled my choice of colleges when he said: 'Yon will have to pay your way; you will have to make money; . go where there's most of it spent, where there are moat rich youngsters who don't realize that a $1 bill sometimes means ft day's work for a man. They'll spend and you'll profit, or else your fathers were born in Connecticut for nothing." "Well, I came east that'fall, passed my ,. entrance examinations—for after all I found that the old Yankee had 'jecn a good teacher—and struck up an acquaintance with one of the professors whoso looks I liked. He gave mo valuable advice, told me where to get a room, and how to fit it up with a stove, three or four chain, etc. I was extravagant on just one point—I bought a good bed. When these things were paid for I had just (ft— this bill and some change. ' That night was my own, for the. college work didn't begin until the next morning. 1 walked out among the dormitories, and there I • made my first strike. A truckman had a load of trunks'to deliver on the upper floors: I offered my aid and he took it. For that I made, enough to be sure of '•••-•omething to eat for another day without Impairing my capital, and I felt easier. The next day I began to get acquainted with the men, and before night I had secured a roommate. Low as my rent was.I wanted to have it shared by some . one else. But eating was another question, my appetite permitting no division, and, although I did my best to pick out the cheap and filling from the bills of , , Jaw, I was down to my five dollar bill be•• fore I made my next discovery. \ ' "Half a dozen boys in my division had formed a 'club,' and I was dining with one .of them when it came. My friends were getting pretty bad board and paying ....pxetty dearly for it. They knew it as •>: •> well as I and fell to talking about It, and • from the conversation I got an idea. That night I traveled about the collage neighborhood until I found a house whose mistress agreed to furnish me with table accommodations for ten men, do the cooking and furnish the necessary service. I ,' .bad done .some mental figuring in the i.'.SBemntlme, and knew that her price was satisfactory. But I went to my friends, and that evening I bad secured nine to ".. Join my club and pay me $6 a week , ' apiece. On tho f 54 1 figured it out that ,1 would be able to pay ten men's ex- proses. The plan la common enough at a good many colleges, I have since learned, but it Was new there. But I ROOD found that as a caterer I waa at a disadvantage. It was hard work to get credit at the shops, for my ?5 bill' was something I couldn't use to impress tho grocers and batchers successfully, my boarders had •vigorous appetites and a catholic liking for'pretty much everything. It was a close scrape of it for a mouth. - Then I got a bit ahead and began to feel easier, until two circumstances combined to nearly ruin me. They came togother— one waa a snow storm, the other was an . ; accident disabling one of my boarders, , Who owed me quite a UttlS account. "To tell the truth, I hadn't noticed how tia winter had been coming on, and the Know caught mo unawares. It meant that I must have an overcoat, just at the ; tbne one of my sources oi revenue was cot oft In fact, I had been depending upon the injured man, paying up his score to give me a little spending money, and I ' saw that a* fur as my restaurant was concerned I coald look for no help from It on the clothing account. But I had to have the coat There was no doubt aboutit, in fact, it was surprising how cold I felt. There was just one thing to do, and I hurried down town. , . " 'Here,'. I said, as I rushed I nto a reidy t node clothing store, 'give me a big overcoat, the warmest you' ve got.' "The s&legiuan fitted me a jtnrraent that certainly had the virtue of weight.

I'.e- tween work and worry I rut her let ray studies RO, and so it. wns not surprNing when one of the professors asked me to remuiu after the recitation. I waited, expecting » warning to greater diligance ot. least. Instead, I was asked a few questions and, before I knew it, hiffl told tiro professor of my financial embarrassments. The story interested him, and at its close he asked me if I had ever 'tutored' liny. I had only n vague idea of tutoring, but ho gave me a hint. In college thero i.i always more or less Instruction outride of the class rooms given by students who, for the time, act as teachers for their lazy or behindhand mates. It pays pretty well—from f 1 an hour up. My friend RHTVO mo more than advice, ho sent me two or three classmates in need of an intellectual nurse and In desperate danger of being dropped. 'If you can pull them through,' I was told, 'you will bo doing wonders and your reputation will be made as a tutor.' "Did I work with those men? Well, I've never tolled harder; fighting not so much for glory as for that overcoat. And I won it, and as my pupils did get through on examination some renown came in the bargain. Luck generally comes with n rush when It sets toward a fellow, and some especially tough mathematics just then threatened to put half 'the class on tho Invalid list. I had all the work that I could do, and It seemed to me that I was coining money. The overcoat was paid for, and a suit of clothes—sadly needed before—was added to my scanty Block. Tn fact, by Christmas I was able to pay up my term bills—which, after all, were light enough—and having some dollars in my pocket I felt like taking some recreation. That meant a trip to New York where—well, I'm not pr^/.d of It, even if I was but n Freshman—I was buncoed, waking up one morning in a police station with nothing but my old stand by, tho $5 bill, which hod been in an Inside vest pocket. A few hours later I got into a court, which, from the way business was rushed and sentences imposed, was anything but reassuring. The judge heard my tale of woe and both ot us learned with what I was charged, a general fracture of the peace at an early morning hour p-- 1 an utter inability to explain anything. So said a policeman, who very likely was right, I'm sure I couldn't prove that ho was not. "'If you will let me go, njudge,' I pleaded, 'I'll get out of towu as soon as I can.' "His honor was inclined to bo lenient. 'If you can show me," he said, 'that you havo the means to go away I'll let you go, but tho officer says you hadn'.t a penny when you were searched at tho station.' "Out came my one bill in an instant, and I was free. Did 1 spend it in getting back to college? Not a bit of it—I tramped all the way. .1 was superstitious about that note and wouldn't havo broken it for anything. "Tutoring kept me tho rest of my four years in college; ray eating club going to pieces very soon. But I kept my 'V all the way through, and hove stuck to it ever since. I'm going to havo it framed; it's my mascot. You're in a bank,. yon Bay, and of course, it looks like any other five dollar bill to you. But I .wouldn't part with it for gold." "No," quoth the young man of the cast, seizing the chance to slip in n word edgewise. "It doesn't look like'any othor bill to me." "Why's that!" demanded tho west suspiciously. "Because"—and the cast smiled a smile that, was bland—"the bill's a counterfeit." " ijow the surtlrtn Theory of r llonutlflr* M'omrn. A MINE OF WEALTH. At! fliHli lieol^rrr'H IMgcourM' oiiTCffgl*. ModiclmV IIH IVell il» Food. . The discourse on egy:s which MivSlm- momLs bus Just delivered befon: the Society of Arts is well worthy of the most careful consideration. Eggn, according to tho lecturer, constitute u neglected mine of wealth. Thoy are the one article of agricultural produce fur which the demand Is unlimited, and perhaps the only one in which we mii^ht, did we choose, defy foreign competition. They not only mean money, but they command prices that admit' of pro3t compared with which beef and mutton are of little account and wheat bnrely wcrth mentioning. Huns, for those who know how to utilize them, lay eggs which, if not made of gold, aro quite capable of being turned into that metal, when they are rotailuble all the year round, one month with another, at something not much short of -a penny apiece, while the eggs of ducks will bring a Btill more remunerative price. Eggs are a meal in themselves. Every clement necessary to tho support of man is contained within tho limits of an eggshell, in the beat proportions and in the most palatable form. Plain boiled, they aro wholesome. Tho masters of French cookery, however, affirm that it-is easy to dress them in more than GOO different ways, each method not only economical but salutary in the highest decree. 'No honest appetite ever yet rejected an egg in some guise. It Is nutriment In the most portable form and ; in tho most concentrated shape. \Vholo nations of mankind rarely touch any other animal food. Kings eat them plain as readily as do the humble tribesmen. After the victory of Muhklorf, when the Kaiser Ludwlg Bat at meat with his burg- grafs and great captains, he determined on a piece of luxury — "one egg to every man, and two to the excellently valiant Schwepperman." Far more than flsh— for its wntery dlet-^eggs arc the scholar's fare. They contain phosphorus, which Is brain food, and sulphur, which performs a variety of functions in tho economy. And they are the best of nutriment for children, for, in a compact form, they contain everything that is necessary for the growth of the youthful frame. Eggs arej however, not only food — they are medicine. also. The white Is the moat efficacious of remedies for burns, and tho oil extractable from the yelk is regarded by the Russians as an almost miraculous salve for cuts, bruises and scratches. A raw egg, if swallowed in time, will effectually detach a flsh bone in the throat, and the white of two eggs will render tbo deadly corrosive sublimate as harmless as a dpae of calomel. They strengthen tho consumptive. Invigorate the feeble and render the most susceptible all but proof against jaundice in its more malignant phase. They can also be drunk In the shape of that "eRg fllp"^ which sustains the oratorical efforts of a modern statesman. The merits of eggs do not end oven here. In, Franco alono the wine clariflers use more than 80,000,000 n year, and the Alsatians consume fully 38,000,000 in calico printing and for dressing tho leather •nsc.d in making the finest of French Wd gloves. Finally, not to men- UOB various other ; employiaents for eggs in •• tho nirts, they may, ot course, almost wltUout trouble on the fanner's port, be cbn»erte4 Into fowls, which in any Bhape are profitable to the seller and welcome to the buyer. Even egg shells are valuable, for allopath and homeopath aliko agree In regarding them an the purest of carbonate of lime. — London Standard. TThnt Is the Delstirtian method?

A well-shaped head, crowned with a wealth of iron Cray hnir, dark, brilliant eyes, beneath finely-arched brows, were noted as she approached. When she spoko it was with a voice sweet and low, yet with a wonderful compass. "What is the secret of this power of vocnl expression vou seem to have T" "Secret? there is no secret," laughed Mme. Gray. "Time was whenj had one of the weakest and thinnest of voices. Any one can a c- complish what ••! have done. It is so easy to acquire a full re- ii o n an t voice that willncver tire or grow hoarse. All vocal disabilities may be over- c o m e, hesAation, stammcrinir, stuttering, soon disappear under proper training." "Docs this training affect the physical system?" '•Yes, it will develop the bunt to almost ideal perfection. Gentlemen will add four or five inches chest measurement in as many months." "It is desirable from a point of beauty, then?" "Ycs, : ladles gain the roundness of waist, taper of arm and hand, and the" perfect poise, ease and grace in movement, that add so much to personal charms." "Health, I should think, would be benefited, also?" "Indeed it is. Lung and throat troubles decrease, narrow chests and thin arms are developed, and female weaknesses largely overcome." "It seems to be a regular panacea ?" "No; I am sorry to say that some organs cannot bo made good in this way after they have been injured as mine were by a sojourn near a Southern swamp. Before 1 tried pliysical culture and Warner's safe cure I was a confirmed invalid.

' Some of our Sterling business men was here on business this week. Deer Grove school is making preparations for a good time at the'Central examination this year.

Nothing was left undone towards making preparations for a good time by those in charge. Mr. Sullivan from Wisconsin is visit- Ing at Mr. John Drew's. The ditch question is exerting some debate among those interested. Rev. Father Sullivan has been called to Chicago to acoupt a parish in that place this week, leaving the people of Tampico. ' While oiir correspondent was returning home to Deer Grove last Tuesday eveuine.'he was very much alarmed by meeting some object on the roadside in the shape of a snowplow, but instead of plowing through the snow, it was packing it down in great shape, and being very curious to discover the manner by which it was. making such a compact tract, we drove up quite near aud found it was Charley McCabe, who had lost ttw hind bob and was going along with front. bob and wagon box which contained himself, Mr. Hutten and a quarter ?of beef, all settled down nicely against the hind end gate.
