I saw a little fellow with a leafy

To resume my narrative. I was bit

When I had somewhat recovered from

While we were talking, a boy about
ten years old came in.
"There be is!" I exclaimed. "There's
the boy who kept me alive. I would

"He's my son," said the man I had
been speaking with.
He was the perfect Image of his fa

to the parent "but since you have

Then was I enabled to repay the
father through the son, for I could not
have bestowed upon the first what I
did on the last. The family were poor
and could not afford to give the young

to whom I was really Indebted had the
satisfaction of seeing his boy take a
far different position In life from which

THE Woman's Titanic Memorial
association has been organized
for the purpose of erecting a
memorial to the men who
went down In the Titanic. A commit
tee of one hundred, composed of rep
resentative women, has the matter In
charge. Mrs. John Hay, widow of the
former secretary of state, Is chairman
of the association, and Mrs. John Hays
Hammond is secretary.
Mrs. William Howard Taft, wife of
the president contributed the first dol
lar to the fund. She wrote:
