When everything goes wrong, boyr
When you're sick or tired,
Vh you isit your beat girl,
A.nd by her pa get flrcd,
There's nothing in the world, boya,
Wilt brinjr you such relief.
As a rpal good hearty laugh, boys,
'Twill soon allay your grief.
So for oach pain whate'er the cause,
Just try the laughing plan.
Laughter's an institution, boys, J
Then let's laugh all we can.
Let preachers rate frivolity,
We very well do know ',
The greatest prosers use it, ,
But oppose it just for show;
They find it such a help, boys,
As all poor sinners do,
And they need its consolation, hoys.
As much as I or you.
Of all the remedies on earth

Laughter's the best and cheapest, boys,

A FEAEFUL OEDEAL.
An Aot of Mercy But It Wrecked
The superintendent was escorting
three guests through his institution
At a certain point he made a partia1
pause, and, motioning to the figure oi
a man visible in one of the rooms ofi
the corridor, said: "Thero is one of the
saddest cases that has ever coma under
my notice." Tho person alluded to
was seated in one of the pleasant par
lors of the establishment which lined
the hallway. His hair was gray, and
in his form were symptoms of age
which a look at his face belied. There
wero no wrinkles, none of the deep
furrows which care will plow in the
human face. The eye was bright, and
had a look of gentleness very attractive
to the observer.
"He certainly does not look like a
j dangerous individual," remarked one of
"Dangerous?" replied the superin
tendent, "ho is as harmless as a kitten,
and sometimes I don't believe he is
really insane, but for all that he is bet
ter oif where he can be looked after.
You see, he has fits of temporary de
mentia, during which his excitement
runs away with him, and he might do
himself some injury, though he would
never raise his hand to harm anyone
"His trouble is very peculiar; he had
an awful experience once in connection
with a railway accident and at each re
turning anniversary of that event he
becomes much depressed, seemingly
only desirous of hiding himself away
from all observation. He is never vio
lent, hut these seasons of depression
are so intense that it appears advisable
he should be watched."
"Does he ever talk of the event at
other tames than at its anniversary?"'
'Oh, yes, indeed; in fact, at all other
times he seems to enjoy meeting peo
ple, and if the subject of accidents
arises in the course of conversation he
is almost certain to tell his story. If
you care to hear it an allusion will
bring out one of the most affecting
stories you have ever heard."
The superintendent was right; on the
way out he said: "Well, Mr. Martelle,
how are you? Let me introduce some
friends of mine."
After a few words of commonplace
conversation, one of the guests adroitly
led the talk up to railway disasters by
referring to something he had seen in
the morning papers. Martelle was seen
to move uneasily in his chair and to
become visibly agitated. His face
blanched and in a voice tremulous with
emotion he began: "Gentlemen, you
may not have heard of it, or if you
have, you may have forgotten it, but I
was in a railway accident once that has
changed tho whole couise of my life."
Each one present manifested an in
terest in the subject that, while pre
meditated, was not in the least
affected. Thus encouraged he went on:
"I was making my first trip in the
west. I had been through California
and was heading for the Yellowstone
eountry. One day we were whirlinc
along, everybody in good spirits, and
I had just gone forward into the smok
ing car and accepted an invitation to
sit in a game of whist. My partner
was a fine-looking man, about thirty
five years old, with a pleasant face
and voice, and full of good humor.
The game was close, for all happened
to be good players. Each side had one
to its credit and tha rubber had been
"Suddenly thero was a lurch, a
shock, and then for me there was noth
ing but t deep unconsciousness. How
long 1 remained so I cannot tell, but it
could not have been long. With the
return of my senses came the knowl
edge that I was hurt There was a
pain in my back and the blood was
trickling down my face and neck from
a wound in the head. I was lying on
the ground nnd it was some minutes
fore I could realize what had hap
pened. Gradually matters became
clearer. I remembered the game of
cards and the sudden shock, and then I
knew some dreadful accident had hap
pened. While our game had progressed
night had fallen, and in the dim light
from tho stars and several lanterns I
could see the figures of men moving
about here and there, and 1 soon real
ized that they were bearing the forms
of killed and wounded to my locality,
some distanco from the wreck.
"The sense of sight had been the first
to recover; but now the terrible throb
bing pain in my head seemed to lull
and my hearing became more active.
It was an awful sound that broke upon
my ears. Shrieks, groans and plead
ings for help were mingled with cries
of children for parents and parents for
"I made a struggle to get on mr feet.
Though at first the pain racked me
from head to foot, I found I could
stand, and was soon walking slowly
and carefully about. Xaturallv my
first thought was concerning my friends
Ui the trame of whist, thejr beinr the
ZZT iccrusznxniicea x naa on cue tram.
Almost at the moment I thought oi
them two of them came to me. They
were uninjured, and it had been their
hands that had carried me from the caz
while I was unconscious.
"It took but a minute for my friends
to give me some idea of the extent ol
the catastrophe. Our smoking-car had
been derailed and had rolled down a
steep embankment, dragging the en
gine and one other coach with it As
near as they could teU at that moment
there had been at least a dozen killed
and twice that number wounded.
"I inquired: 'Where is my partner?
Is he alive?'
" 'Yes, he is alive,' was the reply,
'but he is in a bad fix- We are working
our best to get him out of th6 wreck,
feut without help he cannot be saved.
He lies there with his lower limbs
pinned in between two srreat iron rods,
and with all the strength we have beea
able to apply nve can't release him. H
must be in horrible agony, though hi
is still conscious.'
"It was but a step or two from where
we stood to where the man lay, and we
turned to see if there might not be soma
possibility of helping him. A terrible
cry came from the sufferer. ,1ust then
some one called: 'The car is on fire.
The coach is burning.'
"The flame from some lamp had
caught the dry upholstery. The wind
had suddenly increased and was blow
ing the flame toward the spot where
our poor friend was helplessly pin
ioned. While some ran for water oth
ers with ax and lever made an effort to
pry the heavy rods and timbers from
the sufferer. It was no use; there was
no appliance at hand with which it
could be done, and those who went for
water came back empty-handed. The
engine lay upon its side and every drop
of water had leaked out and had been
drunk up by the greedy earth.
" 'For the love of God, men, do some
thing,' cried the imprisoned wretch.
('Must I slowly roast to death?1
"With an awful effort he raised him
self upon au elbow and looked around
upon the faces near him. These were
rapidly diminishing in number, for the
heat had now grown too fierce to ba
borne, and the crowd which had never
ceased their efforts to get him out wera
driven away. Suddenly his eyes fell
on my face and recognized me.
" 'You,' he cried in an awful voice,
'you are the man to do it Take that
ax and kill me.'
"The thought paralyzed me. He
saw me shrink and shudder, and with
a supreme effort he pointed his finger
straight at me and cried again with
more intensity than before; 'Youl youl
do it, I tell you.'
"The heat was making his garments
smoke. 'Don't let me roast, he once
more cried. I forgot my pain and in a
wild delirium I snatched up an ax and
drove tho blade crashing into his skull,
then all the world became again a
"It was many weeks before I was
restored to consciousnea and many
more before I was able to -move. My
bodily injuries, though severe, did no$
oripple me, and I am now strong and
physically welL But my mind is some
times upset I believe I did the best
thing that could be done for the poor
man, thongh the act was performed in
a frenzy that made mo irresponsible.
I believe to-day it was an act of hu
manity. It ha wrecked my life, how
ever, for until memory fails I shall be
compelled to live that scene over and
over again in all its horror." Chicago
UNPOPULAR GREAT MEN.
Cnpleagant Consequences of Getting Too
Far Ahead of the Age.
A little more than three and a quar
ter centuries have passed sinco the
birth of Galileo, the greatest philoso
pher and astronomer that Italy evei
saw. In the same year 1564 Shakes
peare was born. At that time the peo
ple of the eastern continent were al
most totally ignorant of the existence
of America. They had heard in a vaguq
way about the great western world,
but they could form no conception oi
the vast extent of our territory, many
believing that it was simply a small
island. In the same year that Galileo
and Shakespeare saw the light the
Huguenots began a settlement in Flor
ida, which at that time was thought to
oo an enchanted spot Galileo was
the eldest son of a nobleman of Flor
entine, and in his infancy manifested
an interest in the stars. While look
ing at the heavens one night he said in
"There are thousands of stars, and
f et all of them together do not give
ane-tcnth the light that the sun itself
fives. " No boy ever worked harder to
rain knowledge, and no boy had so
many obstacles to overcome as this
f oung student Before he had reached
ois eighteenth year he waB well versed
m Latin and Greek, was an excellent
artist and an accomplished musician.
His father wished him to practice, but
nb tastes and inclinations led him to
follow mathematics. Galileo's ideas
were so far beyond tha age in which
he lived that no publisher dared print
his works. His first essay on "Hydro
static Balance" was written in 15S5,
but it was not until 1610 that it was
read by the public. His essay on "The
Center of Gravity" was not published
until fifty years after it was written.
While in his seventieth year he was
cast into prison and all his works pro
hibited. This was a terrible blow to
tho old man, foi he had committed no
;rirae; he knew in his heart that he
was right When he asked why he
was sent to prison he was told that he
had been making false statements.
"You say that the world moves, but it
does not," said his enemies. "It is tho
Bun that moves." "But the world does
more," said Galileo, fearlessly, as
they were shutting him in a dark cell.
We speak of the "dark ages," of the
"ages of superstition," etc., of the cen
turies past, and forget all about the
ignorance, darkness and superstition
of the nineteenth century. Galileo
stood foremost among the unpopular
great men of the sixteenth and seven
teenth centuries. Thore are three ia

It is not generally known that on an
average about eight hundred messages
