SHIP ITS OWN TUGBOAT. Good Health Bad Digestion, Bad Heart. Poor digestion often causes irregular- ity of the heart's action. This irregu- larity may be mistaken for real, organic heart disease. The symptoms are much the same. There is however a vast difference between the two: organic heart disease is often incurable; ap- parent heart disease is curable if good digestion be restored. A case in point is quoted from the New Era, of Qreensburg, Ind. Mrs. Ellen Colsom, Newpoint, Ind., a woman 48 years old, had suffered for four years with distressing stomach trouble. The eases generated by tiie indigestion pressed on the heart, and caused an irregularity of its action. She had much pain in her stomach and heart, and was subject to frequent and severe choking spells which were most severe at night. Doctors were tried iu vain; the patient became worse, de- spondent and feared impending death. CONSUMPTION CAN BE CURED The Doctor Slocum System Has Proven Beyond Any Doubt Its Positive Power Over the Dread Disease EXTERMINATING THE CURSE OF AGES told him all about It myself," said Fol- ly, smiling. "I remember now, that it was the same with me and the cat," said Joe. "I know I wanted to tell you how sorry I was, and it was all I could think of when Jonessy came to see ma" "I am sorny, too, Joe," said Polly, "and I hope you won't think that I done It on purpose." Somehow the summer dusk gathered around them, and neither seemed to notice It, as they talked on and on across the table between them. After awhile, however, Polly rose and went to the open door, where Joe followed her. "Say, Polly," he said, taking her un- resisting hand, "1 have been sorry for" everything all these years; won't you say that you forgive me?" Polly looked up into his face. "I have been sorry, too, Joe. Oh I so sorry." Just then Polly's cat, purring softly, rubbed herself against Joe's leg, and at the same moment old Domlnlck crowed lustily on his own side of the fence.- - Now, In Pinevllle, a good many things are dated from the time "when Joe Peterhian and Polly May got married."

"Why, there Isn't a soul in rinevlllo would believe you could do it" "Could do what?" "Why, carry Joe Peterman In your arms, of course." "Jim Jonessy, you are a fool!" she cried, very red In the faco. "It Is Joe's old Domlnlck rooster I have been talk-lu- g about." "Why, yes, of course," stammered Jonessy, in confusion, trying to smile. "I was Just teasing you. Polly, know- ing that you and Joe were such old friends." "But did Jot? say he was going to take me to court?" she asked. "Not exactly, but I advised him to go and talk the matter over with you. Ray, Polly, you two ought to make up. You take my advice," said Jonessy. Then Jonessy went one way and Polly went the other, each one busy with many thoughts. That evening Mrs. Jonessy asked her husband how many fees the new office had brought him. "This Is the first day, you know," he smiled faintly. "I have Just been set- ting the wheels In motion to-da- and the fees will come in after uwhllo." "Yes; when Joe Peterman and Polly May get married," she said, laughing. Jonessy had accomplished something that day. He had set Joe and Polly thinking about each other. Joe's long, Editorial Note.

A unique propelling device has- just been Invented whereby a vessel may In a measure become its own tugboat. It resembles an auxiliary propeller more than anything else, consisting mainly of a cylinder pointed at both ends and carrying within a motor mechanism which receives Its power ordinarily from the engine of the vessel to which It is attached. At one end of the propelling device there Is a screw propeller, and to the middle Is attached a bar, or tube, con- necting the ship and forming a conduc- tor for electricity, steam, compressed air or other motive power. On either side of the tube radical arms extend, connecting with the shjp in order to more perfectly secure the auxiliary craft to Its greater consort. The device may be attached to both sides, to either end, or to whatever por- tion of the ship may seem desirable. Two of them will propel an ocean steamer with sufficient force to give it headway, though very little speed. It is especially designed for the use of vessels which have suffered accident, either to their propelling, machinery or to the rudder. It will supply admira- bly the place of the steering apparatus, and seems to be Just about what has been needed for some time. Nothing can be more unmanageable than a ship without a rudder, and the Inventor says it was really this Idea that in- spired him to conceive what promises to be a very useful contrivance. Any vessel can be easily equipped with tho new propelling device, and that, too, without complication of any sort. All that Is necessary Is to supply the avenuo for the power to reach the device and to provide for its being se- cured to the side or end of the ship. When not In use It can be carried on davits, In the same fashion as the ship's boats. Thus when It Is needed It may be easily dropped to the necessary IKilnt where It Is to be fastened and re ceive Its connections as easily and gen- tly as when a boat Is lowered In a heavy sea with proper precautions to prevent Its being stove in against the side of the vessel. Ordinarily the device would weigh one ton, and be of twenty-hors- e power capacity. Its dimensions would be twenty-thre- e Inches in diameter by seven- ty-two Inches in length, though the Inventor believes that yachts and fast steamers would do better If the conical case were made longer so as to slip through the water more easily. This would not Interfere with tho capacity of the motor. WHO ARE "DE QUALITY ?" Social IHstinctions of the Old Regime Still Held by the Free-bor- n Negro. Lilian Bell givs this characteristic dialogue between two colored women In the opening chapter of "Yessum," a vivid story of Southern life appearing in the Woman's Home Companion: "On Saturday afternoon the 'wash' of the Northern delegates to the Bap- tist convention was being borne through the streets of Memphis on the heads of two black, pendulous colored women. " TVhat you gwine do, Slst' Richidy, if dem Northern ladies gibs you fits 'bout scorchin' dat skirt?' " 1 ain't skeered 'bout what dem Northern ladies gwine say to me' bout nuthln', Sist' Golden,' retorted the oth- er. 'Don't you know dey say dat col- ored folks is jes as good as white folks Is, an' dat up Norf If a colored lady got a sils. dress she gits Invited to de white folks' pah ties Jes' like de quality?' 'Git out wid you, Sist' Richidy, I aln' no sich softy as to b'lieve yo' fool talk.' "''Ta.ln't no fool talk, Slst' Golden. Hit's de Gawd's trufo. 'Cordln' to dat de ladles won't dare say nuthln' to me 'bout dat scorched skirt, 'case it would be lake deir sassin' one anurr. An' if dey did talk sassy to me,' she added, emboldened by the other's evident ad- miration, 'I'd Jes up an' sass 'em back. Deed I would.

" How Barnum Won His Wife. Barnum was Mayor of Bridgeport and a widower, ne was lonesome and his beautiful homo, Waldemere, on tho shore of Long Island Sound, was not much visited except by sightseers. He became Interested In the beautiful daughter of John Fish, of Southport, England, a retired manufacturer, and solicited her hand in marriage. Bar- num was well advanced In years and knew his fame as the prince of show- men was not sufficient to win the prize. In fact, the fame might hurt his suit rather than help It, for Miss Fish great- ly disliked the notoriety attached to the "greatest show on earth," and after she had married Its owner, always, managed to hold herself aloof from the publicity her husband loved so well. But the old shqwman's knowledge of the English leve for celebrity led him to play a winning card- - He had his photograph taken, with Waldemere as a backgroun.d. The picture represent- ed hlra seated In a showy landau, har- nessed to four beautiful black horses, his coachman on the box and two foot- men behind- - Under the photograph were the words, "Lord Mayor. 6? Bridgeport." A copy of this picture was forwarded to Miss Fish, and Bar- num always thought it "did the busi- ness." At all events, it was not long after Miss Fish received the picture that she became his wife. A Hasty Conclusion.

Examination by a' male physician Is a hard trial to a delicately organized woman. She puts It off as long as she dare, and is only driven to it. by fear of cau-Ce- r, polypus, or some dreadful ill. Most frequently such a woman leaves a physician s office where she has un- dergone a critical examination with an i mpression , more or less, of discour agement. This condi- tion of the mind destroys the effect of advice; and she grows worse rather than better In consulting Mrs. l"mk-ha- m no hesitation need be felt, the story is told to a woman and Is wholly confidential. Mrs. Pink ham's address is Lynn, Mass.. she offers sick women her advice without charge. Her intimate knowledge of women's troubles makes her letter of advice a wellsprlngof hope, and her wide experi- ence and skill point the way to health.

( ITEN Joe retermrtn and w roily May get married," tvhs a standing jest In Plnevlllc. Joe and Polly lived on adjoining five-acr- e lots, with only a fence be- tween them. It was not a very high fence nor a strong one either, for it was almost rotted down In many places. It was said that years ago Joe and Polly had been sweethearts, but that they had quarreled aboyt some trifling matter, and that they had not spoken to each other since that day. Jonessy had Just been elected Justice of Pinevllle, mid was looking around to see where the fees of the office were to come from. As there was nothing for him to do In the office, he thought that It was his duty to go outside of it and hunt up something. In debating the question with himself as to what woujd be most likely to bring him In a fee, bis mind, of course, turned to marriages. " hen Joe Peterman and Polly May get married," he repeated to himself, smiling. "Well, It Is a duty I owe to this community to end that quarrel of theirs the first thing, and It is a duty I owe to myself to see that they get married as soon afterward as possi- ble." So Jonessy took a walk out to Joe Peterman's place, and found the latter at home. "Joe," he said, after some talk on subjects in general. "Joe, I came out to see you on official business." Joe's eyes flew wide open. "I haven't been doing anything wrong, have I?" he asked, with trem- bling voice. The truth was that Joe had thrown a brickbat at Polly's cat the night be- fore, and without really intending to do so. had hit her and knocked her out of his favorite peach tree, and had felt rather mean about It ever since, "Well, I don't know," Jonessy replied, cautiously, for he could see that Joe had something on his mind, and thought to draw him out "You see, Joe, the right and the wrong generally depends on the circumstances attend- ing the case," "That's what I reckoned," said Joe. "You see I saw her coming through the fence, and tried to make her go back." "And she wouldn't go?" "No." "W hat did you do next' 1 "Soon as I spoke she ran np that peach tree, and went to clawing and scratching the bark." "She did. eh?" "She did. Then I got mad, like a fool," said Joe, hanging his head. "I picked up a brickbat and threw It at her. and down she came, kicking her legs'llke drumsticks." "Didn't she say anything?" asked Jonessy. "Who?" "Why, Tolly May, of course." "You didn't think that It was Polly I treated that way, did you?" asked Joe, "No, hardly. Put who was It?" "It was Polly's cat, J ne sy. I thought that perhaps Polly had seen It, and gone to you and enteruf! a complaint against me." "No, she hasn't done It yet, Joe. but there J.s no telling how soon she may do so," said Jonessy. Then he added, con- fidentially, "If I were you I'd go over and see her and settle the whole thing out of court." After Jonessy left him Joe stood and scratched his head for some time. The whole thing was & puzzle to him. Had Jonessy known more than he pretend- ed? If so, had Polly told him? And If Polly had, was It at her suggestion that Jonessy had come and told him to go and see her? "It is ten years since we spoke," he mused; with a sad smile, while a mock- ing bird was singing blithely In a tree close by. Then suddenly he burst out laughing. "The idea of Polly climbing a tree," he tried. "And me throwing brickbats at her, and she fallUig But Jonessy walked homeward In quite a different mood. Somehow he felt that his mission find Deen rather a failure. Still, every once Jn awhile, a gleam of hope darted upward and he thought that he could see a fee of office afar off. As he walked along, musing and dreaming he found himself suddenly face to face with a woman carrying a huge basket on her arm. "How do you do. Judge?" she cried, cheerily, Jetting her basket down to the ground. "I was real glad to hear that you was elected." "Thank you, Polly. I was Just think- ing about you when you bobbed up," said Jonessy. "Have Just been over to see your neighbor, Joe Peterman, and was op my way home with my thoughts full of both of you." Polly frowned. "Joe isn't going to have me to court. Is he?" she asked. "Can't say. Polly. I reckon that de- pends as much on you as on hlnj." "Well, he had no business coming In through the window like be did," Pol". cried. "It served him only right that the window fell down on blm like it did and caught h,lr hy the leg. Of course, when I grabbed him by the throat to keep him from squalling, and he cut me on the wrist, I was mad enough to kill him. But I kept my tem- per, and I didn't hurt him any more than I could help," she protested. "But Joe didn't,-- -" Jonessy began. "Of course Joe didn't Joe never would listen to reason." crhjd Polly. "But Polly, Joe" Jonessy began again. "That's all right Jim Jonessy: you have Joe's side of the story, and I am going to tell mine," cried Polly. "After I got him loose I bothered with him all day, and doctored him, and that night after dark, I carried him In my arms to the fenge .and set him down on the other side." "Goodness, Polly, you don't mean to tell me that you carried him In your arms?" Jonessy exclaimed., "Well, I Just did, and r wear to It " Nat to take a cure for an otherwise fatal disease is to practically commit suicide." A Doctor's BUI. A good true story Is told of a San Francisco philanthropist and a doctor with a conscience. A wealthy lady several years ago developed an In- significant wen on her face. In her travels In Europe she consulted an eminent surgeon as to Its removal, and was advised not to have It done. An Eastern surgeon of equal eminence also declined to perform tho operation. Returning to San Francisco, she hap- pened to show It to a physician and surgeon of no national reputation a humble homeopath but a man whose skill was unquestioned. He examined It carefully, and said there would be no trouble about It;, It was a simple operation. Dreading to risk It after such eminent warning, she delayed ac- tion, but finally asked another exam- ination and opinion. The same con- clusion was reached; and the operation followed, with wholly successful re- sults. One day, when the doctor called, his bill was asked for. He presented it, fifty dollars being the amount. Tho lady smiled and said: "Do you consider that a roaRonablo charge, considering the circum- stances?" to which the doctor replied: "That is my charge for that opera- - VOICE IN THE DOORWAY. tlon; your clrcumstauces have nothing ' to do with It" . The lady went to her desk, and drew a check for five hundred dollars, and presented It to him. Ho looked at It and handed It back, saying: "I cannot accept this. My charge for that operation Is fifty dollars." "Very well," the lady replied. "Keep the check, and place the balance to my credit." Somo mouths after slvo received a lengthy Itemized bill, upon which wero entered charges for treatment of vari- ous kinds, rendered to all sorts and ends of humanity, male and female, black and white, who nad been mend- ed at her expense. She was so de- lighted at It that she Immediately placed another check for five hundred dollars to her credit on the same terms, and It Is now being earned Iri the same way. Freak of Nature. A curious freak of nature was run across the other day by M. Hauge, a Minneapolis carpenter. While plan- ing a piece of maple his plane revealed to view a black vein In the wood, and he was struck by a strange quirk In nature's photography. It was a cross-graine- d piece, and In a bunch of black veins a face wtf plainly distinguishable, Hauge waa afraid to enter deeper for fear of spoil- ing the image, and he cut out the sec- tion and polished It The wood then showed a combination of three heads The whole, when held at a distance, reveals an excellent likeness of Sir Walter Kalelgh. When held nearer, the upper portion is a clean cut rep- resentation of Queen Elizabeth, ruff and all, even to the peculiar smooth dressing of the hair away from the forehead. Below the head of Eliaabeth Is the face of Shakespeare, quite clear, except that a portion of the pointed beard and the upper left temple are missing. The bit of wood bearing tfcls remark- able trio of natural portraits Is two inches long and three-quarte- rs of an Inch wide. Philadelphia Press. Bast Wind.

These presents are in the form of Beautiful Pastel Pictures i 'I CAN," SAID A MANLY lantern-jawe- d face, usually sober and solemn, had relaxed luto smiles several times, and once he had actually caught himself humming an old song that had lain forgotten for years within him. On tho other hand, Polly's round and rosy face, that was supposed to wear a smile even in sleep, was very thoughtful and sad. And while bending above the steam from the fragrant teapot, at the supper table, hor eyes seemed filled with unshed tears. "Poor Joe," she sighed, as she sat down to her lonely meal. "I thought sure that he would get over It and mar- ry some one else, but It seems that ho doesn't care any more than I do for anybody, and both of us Just persist In being wrong, when only a word from either of us would make things so dif- ferent." Just then a cat came In at the open door, and whdn Polly saw that It limped slightly on one leg she sprang up from the table and caught It in her arms. "Poor Kitty," she murmured. "I won- der who hurt you? You can't tell, can you?" "I can," said a manly voice In the doorway, and a moment later Joe en- tered the room. "Jonessy told me to- day that you Intended to sue me for throwing a brickbat at your cat," he said. Pally eyed her visitor closely for a moment, and seeing that his eyes were upon her supper table instead of upon herself, the bard lines that bad come around her lips relaxed Into a smile. "Come In. Joe," she said, gently, "Will you take a cup of tea with me?" "Then you ain't mad because I crip- pled your cat?" "Joe," she cried, tryjng to look se- vere, "will you take a cup of tea with me? "Yes. You ain't mad, Polly?" Polly did not reply, but busied herself refilling the teapot and making room for him at the table. When Joe was seated at the table Polly sat down opposite to him and watched him In silence for several min utes. "So Jim Jonessy has been telling you that I was about to take you to court for crippling my cat has he?" she said at last. "I met him when he came from your house, and he hinted that you might have me prosecuted because your old Domlnlck rooster came over here and got himself crippled the other day." "I never said no such thing, Polly," cried Joe, "Nor did I," said Polly, "I never mentioned rooster to him." i "And I never said cat" "I wonder bow he found out?" cried !

Good Health Bad Digestion, Bad Heart.

Poor digestion often causes irregular-ity of the heart's action. This irregu-larity may be mistaken for real, organicheart disease. The symptoms are muchthe same. There is however a vastdifference between the two: organicheart disease is often incurable; ap-

parent heart disease is curable if gooddigestion be restored.

A case in point is quoted from theNew Era, of Qreensburg, Ind. Mrs.Ellen Colsom, Newpoint, Ind., awoman 48 years old, had suffered forfour years with distressing stomachtrouble. The eases generated by tiieindigestion pressed on the heart, andcaused an irregularity of its action.She had much pain in her stomach andheart, and was subject to frequent andsevere choking spells which were mostsevere at night. Doctors were tried iuvain; the patient became worse, de-

spondent and feared impending death.

ly, smiling."I remember now, that it was the

same with me and the cat," said Joe."I know I wanted to tell you how sorryI was, and it was all I could think ofwhen Jonessy came to see ma"

"I am sorny, too, Joe," said Polly,"and I hope you won't think that Idone It on purpose."

Somehow the summer dusk gatheredaround them, and neither seemed tonotice It, as they talked on and onacross the table between them. Afterawhile, however, Polly rose and wentto the open door, where Joe followedher.

"Say, Polly," he said, taking her un-

resisting hand, "1 have been sorry for"

everything all these years; won't yousay that you forgive me?"

Polly looked up into his face."I have been sorry, too, Joe. Oh I so

sorry."Just then Polly's cat, purring softly,

rubbed herself against Joe's leg, and atthe same moment old Domlnlck crowedlustily on his own side of the fence.- -

Now, In Pinevllle, a good many thingsare dated from the time "when JoePeterhian and Polly May got married."

"I wouldn't do it if I was you," saidJonessy, earnestly. "Why, there Isn'ta soul in rinevlllo would believe youcould do it"

"Could do what?""Why, carry Joe Peterman In your

"But did Jot? say he was going totake me to court?" she asked.

"Not exactly, but I advised him to goand talk the matter over with you. Ray,Polly, you two ought to make up. Youtake my advice," said Jonessy.

Then Jonessy went one way andPolly went the other, each one busywith many thoughts.

New Propelling Device by Which aVessel May Tow Itself.

A unique propelling device has- justbeen Invented whereby a vessel may Ina measure become its own tugboat. Itresembles an auxiliary propeller morethan anything else, consisting mainlyof a cylinder pointed at both ends andcarrying within a motor mechanismwhich receives Its power ordinarilyfrom the engine of the vessel to whichIt is attached.

At one end of the propelling devicethere Is a screw propeller, and to themiddle Is attached a bar, or tube, con-

necting the ship and forming a conduc-tor for electricity, steam, compressedair or other motive power. On eitherside of the tube radical arms extend,connecting with the shjp in order tomore perfectly secure the auxiliarycraft to Its greater consort.

The device may be attached to bothsides, to either end, or to whatever por-tion of the ship may seem desirable.Two of them will propel an oceansteamer with sufficient force to give itheadway, though very little speed. Itis especially designed for the use ofvessels which have suffered accident,either to their propelling, machinery orto the rudder. It will supply admira-bly the place of the steering apparatus,and seems to be Just about what hasbeen needed for some time. Nothingcan be more unmanageable than a shipwithout a rudder, and the Inventorsays it was really this Idea that in-

spired him to conceive what promisesto be a very useful contrivance.

Any vessel can be easily equippedwith tho new propelling device, andthat, too, without complication of anysort. All that Is necessary Is to supplythe avenuo for the power to reach thedevice and to provide for its being se-

cured to the side or end of the ship.When not In use It can be carried ondavits, In the same fashion as the ship'sboats. Thus when It Is needed It maybe easily dropped to the necessary

IKilnt where It Is to be fastened and receive Its connections as easily and gen-tly as when a boat Is lowered In aheavy sea with proper precautions toprevent Its being stove in against theside of the vessel.

Ordinarily the device would weighone ton, and be of twenty-hors- e powercapacity. Its dimensions would betwenty-thre- e Inches in diameter by seven-

ty-two Inches in length, though theInventor believes that yachts and faststeamers would do better If the conicalcase were made longer so as to slipthrough the water more easily. Thiswould not Interfere with tho capacityof the motor.

How Barnum Won His Wife.Barnum was Mayor of Bridgeport

and a widower, ne was lonesome andhis beautiful homo, Waldemere, on thoshore of Long Island Sound, was notmuch visited except by sightseers. Hebecame Interested In the beautifuldaughter of John Fish, of Southport,England, a retired manufacturer, andsolicited her hand in marriage. Bar-num was well advanced In years andknew his fame as the prince of show-men was not sufficient to win the prize.In fact, the fame might hurt his suitrather than help It, for Miss Fish great-ly disliked the notoriety attached tothe "greatest show on earth," and aftershe had married Its owner, always,managed to hold herself aloof from thepublicity her husband loved so well.

But the old shqwman's knowledge ofthe English leve for celebrity led himto play a winning card- - He had hisphotograph taken, with Waldemere asa backgroun.d. The picture represent-ed hlra seated In a showy landau, har-nessed to four beautiful black horses,his coachman on the box and two foot-men behind- - Under the photographwere the words, "Lord Mayor. 6?Bridgeport." A copy of this picturewas forwarded to Miss Fish, and Bar-num always thought it "did the busi-ness." At all events, it was not longafter Miss Fish received the picturethat she became his wife.

( ITEN Joe retermrtn andw roily May get married,"tvhs a standing jest In

Plnevlllc.Joe and Polly lived on adjoining

five-acr- e lots, with only a fence be-

tween them. It was not a very highfence nor a strong one either, for it wasalmost rotted down In many places.

It was said that years ago Joe andPolly had been sweethearts, but thatthey had quarreled aboyt some triflingmatter, and that they had not spokento each other since that day.

Jonessy had Just been elected Justiceof Pinevllle, mid was looking aroundto see where the fees of the office wereto come from.

As there was nothing for him to do Inthe office, he thought that It was hisduty to go outside of it and hunt upsomething. In debating the questionwith himself as to what woujd be mostlikely to bring him In a fee, bis mind,of course, turned to marriages.

" hen Joe Peterman and Polly Mayget married," he repeated to himself,smiling. "Well, It Is a duty I owe tothis community to end that quarrel oftheirs the first thing, and It is a dutyI owe to myself to see that they getmarried as soon afterward as possi-ble."

So Jonessy took a walk out to JoePeterman's place, and found the latterat home.

"Joe," he said, after some talk onsubjects in general. "Joe, I came outto see you on official business."

Joe's eyes flew wide open."I haven't been doing anything

wrong, have I?" he asked, with trem-

bling voice.The truth was that Joe had thrown

a brickbat at Polly's cat the night be-

fore, and without really intending to doso. had hit her and knocked her out ofhis favorite peach tree, and had feltrather mean about It ever since,

"Well, I don't know," Jonessy replied,cautiously, for he could see that Joehad something on his mind, andthought to draw him out "You see,Joe, the right and the wrong generallydepends on the circumstances attend-ing the case,"

"That's what I reckoned," said Joe."You see I saw her coming throughthe fence, and tried to make her goback."

"And she wouldn't go?""No.""W hat did you do next' 1

"Soon as I spoke she ran np thatpeach tree, and went to clawing andscratching the bark."

"She did. eh?""She did. Then I got mad, like a

fool," said Joe, hanging his head. "Ipicked up a brickbat and threw It ather. and down she came, kicking herlegs'llke drumsticks."

"Didn't she say anything?" askedJonessy.

"Who?""Why, Tolly May, of course.""You didn't think that It was Polly I

treated that way, did you?" asked Joe,"No, hardly. Put who was It?""It was Polly's cat, J ne sy. I thought

that perhaps Polly had seen It, andgone to you and enteruf! a complaintagainst me."

"No, she hasn't done It yet, Joe. butthere J.s no telling how soon she may doso," said Jonessy. Then he added, con-

fidentially, "If I were you I'd go overand see her and settle the whole thingout of court."

After Jonessy left him Joe stood andscratched his head for some time. Thewhole thing was & puzzle to him. HadJonessy known more than he pretend-ed? If so, had Polly told him? And IfPolly had, was It at her suggestion thatJonessy had come and told him to goand see her?

"It is ten years since we spoke," hemused; with a sad smile, while a mock-

ing bird was singing blithely In a treeclose by.

Then suddenly he burst out laughing."The idea of Polly climbing a tree," hetried. "And me throwing brickbats ather, and she fallUig

But Jonessy walked homeward Inquite a different mood. Somehow hefelt that his mission find Deen rather afailure. Still, every once Jn awhile, agleam of hope darted upward and hethought that he could see a fee of officeafar off.

As he walked along, musing anddreaming he found himself suddenlyface to face with a woman carrying ahuge basket on her arm.

"How do you do. Judge?" she cried,cheerily, Jetting her basket down to theground. "I was real glad to hear thatyou was elected."

"Thank you, Polly. I was Just think-ing about you when you bobbed up,"said Jonessy. "Have Just been over tosee your neighbor, Joe Peterman, andwas op my way home with my thoughtsfull of both of you."

Polly frowned."Joe isn't going to have me to court.

Is he?" she asked."Can't say. Polly. I reckon that de-

pends as much on you as on hlnj.""Well, he had no business coming In

through the window like be did," Pol".cried. "It served him only right thatthe window fell down on blm like itdid and caught h,lr hy the leg. Ofcourse, when I grabbed him by thethroat to keep him from squalling, andhe cut me on the wrist, I was madenough to kill him. But I kept my tem-

per, and I didn't hurt him any morethan I could help," she protested.

"But Joe didn't,-- -" Jonessy began."Of course Joe didn't Joe never

would listen to reason." crhjd Polly."But Polly, Joe" Jonessy began

again."That's all right Jim Jonessy: you

have Joe's side of the story, and I amgoing to tell mine," cried Polly. "AfterI got him loose I bothered with him allday, and doctored him, and that nightafter dark, I carried him In my armsto the fenge .and set him down on theother side."

"Goodness, Polly, you don't mean totell me that you carried him In yourarms?" Jonessy exclaimed.,

"Well, I Just did, and r wear to It

A Doctor's BUI.A good true story Is told of a San

Francisco philanthropist and a doctorwith a conscience. A wealthy ladyseveral years ago developed an In-

significant wen on her face. In hertravels In Europe she consulted aneminent surgeon as to Its removal, andwas advised not to have It done. AnEastern surgeon of equal eminencealso declined to perform tho operation.Returning to San Francisco, she hap-pened to show It to a physician andsurgeon of no national reputation ahumble homeopath but a man whoseskill was unquestioned. He examinedIt carefully, and said there would beno trouble about It;, It was a simpleoperation. Dreading to risk It aftersuch eminent warning, she delayed ac-

tion, but finally asked another exam-ination and opinion. The same con-

clusion was reached; and the operationfollowed, with wholly successful re-

sults.One day, when the doctor called, his

bill was asked for. He presented it,fifty dollars being the amount. Tholady smiled and said:

"Do you consider that a roaRonablocharge, considering the circum-stances?" to which the doctor replied:

"That is my charge for that opera- -

tlon; your clrcumstauces have nothing'to do with It" .

The lady went to her desk, and drewa check for five hundred dollars, andpresented It to him. Ho looked at Itand handed It back, saying:

"I cannot accept this. My chargefor that operation Is fifty dollars."

"Very well," the lady replied. "Keepthe check, and place the balance to mycredit."

Somo mouths after slvo received alengthy Itemized bill, upon which weroentered charges for treatment of vari-ous kinds, rendered to all sorts andends of humanity, male and female,black and white, who nad been mend-ed at her expense. She was so de-

lighted at It that she Immediatelyplaced another check for five hundreddollars to her credit on the same terms,and It Is now being earned Iri the sameway.

Freak of Nature.A curious freak of nature was run

across the other day by M. Hauge, aMinneapolis carpenter. While plan-ing a piece of maple his plane revealedto view a black vein In the wood, andhe was struck by a strange quirk Innature's photography.

It was a cross-graine- d piece, and Ina bunch of black veins a face wtfplainly distinguishable, Hauge waaafraid to enter deeper for fear of spoil-ing the image, and he cut out the sec-tion and polished It The wood thenshowed a combination of three heads

lantern-jawe- d face, usually sober andsolemn, had relaxed luto smiles severaltimes, and once he had actually caughthimself humming an old song that hadlain forgotten for years within him. On

tho other hand, Polly's round and rosyface, that was supposed to wear a smileeven in sleep, was very thoughtful andsad. And while bending above thesteam from the fragrant teapot, at thesupper table, hor eyes seemed filledwith unshed tears.

"Poor Joe," she sighed, as she satdown to her lonely meal. "I thoughtsure that he would get over It and mar-

ry some one else, but It seems that hodoesn't care any more than I do foranybody, and both of us Just persist In

being wrong, when only a word fromeither of us would make things so dif-

ferent."Just then a cat came In at the open

door, and whdn Polly saw that It

limped slightly on one leg she sprangup from the table and caught It in herarms.

"Poor Kitty," she murmured. "I won-

"I can," said a manly voice In thedoorway, and a moment later Joe en-

refilling the teapot and making roomfor him at the table.

When Joe was seated at the tablePolly sat down opposite to him andwatched him In silence for several minutes.

"So Jim Jonessy has been telling youthat I was about to take you to courtfor crippling my cat has he?" she saidat last. "I met him when he came fromyour house, and he hinted that youmight have me prosecuted becauseyour old Domlnlck rooster came overhere and got himself crippled the otherday."

"I never said no such thing, Polly,"cried Joe,

"Nor did I," said Polly,"I never mentioned rooster to him." i

"And I never said cat""I wonder bow he found out?" cried
