The schoolroom was very quiet
The master sat at the desk, wearily
leaning his head on his hand, his eyes
fixed on a boyish scrawl decorating
the blackboard across the room.
"This world is all a fleeting show
for man's delusion given," he read
with a mild wonder as to how Bobby
Green chanced to express so pessi
mistic a doctrine.
Thq misquotation, as it stood, was
certainly in sad accord with his own

the children should learn the truth
thus early in life.
Scott Fairfield, the new master of
the district school at the Corners, had
the name of being a "powerful hand

to-day he had outdone himself. After

The biographies were to be road on
Friday afternoon. When the appoint
ed time arrived, the youthful authors
betrayed some excitement and nerv
ousness as they rose one after an
other to offer their contributions.
The master looked down very kindly
at Polly's flushed cheeks and shining
eyes, but he started slightly as she
announced in a shrill trable:
THE BIOGRAPHY OF MY AUNT
This beautiful lady was born, oh, I don't
know how many years ago, but ever so
many-much as 20, maybe. She isn't dead,
yet, so I don't know when she died. She
is tall and slim, and has got a lot of
shiny gold hair piled way up on top of
her head, and she is the prettiest lady I
ever saw. I love her very, very much.
She is never cross, and never says: "Run
away." I don't know anybody else who
don't say: "Run away" sometimes. But
this beautiful lady is very sad. Some
times when I look at her I want to cry,
but I don't know why, so I don't. Once
upon a time-she had a lover. I know this
because she has got his picture upstairs
in her room. I don't think he is as pret
ty as she is, and I told her so one day.
She looked awful funny, and took the
picture away quick. He looks a little
like my teacher, only my teacher has got
whiskers, and he hasn't. This lovely lady
has not been here very long, but I wish
she would stay forever. That is all I
know about her.

"Do you think your Aunt Madge is

sure he would throw his to the winds.
His blood was coursing madly
through his veins and he was tingling
to his finger-tips when Polly opened
the gate before a pret-:y white cot
tage; but he contrived to walk with
proper sedateness behind his small

the delightful importance of the oc
casion. He was pacing nervously up
and down the parlor, however, when

"Why, child, you said she was tall
and-" he stopped short with a sud
den realization of the vivid color that
was staining scarlet the face of the
pretty little woman at his side.
"Apparently my niece has been fa
vorihg you with my personal descrip
tion-and the reality disappoints
you," she began frigidly, but with the
suggestion of a twinkle in her eyes
there was something wonderfully
ludicrous in the picture of confusion
The poor man opened his mouth to
speak, but Polly came to his rescue.
"Papa said you wouldn't recognize
it!" said she, gleefully.
"Recognize what?" questioned Aunt
Madge, turning to Polly in surprise.
"Your biography, of course, and
you said it was praising 'em way to
the skies when it wasn't true, too!"
Aunt Madge colored and bit her lip,
and the ghost of a smile flickered for
an instant across the distressed face
of the man; then he gathered all his
scattered wits and made a mighty ef
"I sincerely beg your pardon. The
fault was all my own. I was led, by
what this little maid said in her biog
raphy, to think that in her Aunt
Madge I had discovered a long-lost
friend. I only hope you will kindly
excuse my awkward stupidity when
you realize how great must have been
my surprise as I saw not my friend,
but an entire stranger enter the
room." Then he turned to Polly with
a faint smile, but a deep pain far
down in his eyes' "I fear, my dear,
that my meaning was not quite clear
to you about the biography. I did not
intend that you should imagine it
"I didn't!" asserted Polly, stoutly.
"I was telling all the time about a
beautiful lady that I love very dear
ly, and it's all true, every bit of a
word. It's Miss Weston, over at
Cousin Mabel's. I just wrote about
her for Aunt Madge's biography
that's all," added Polly with a sob in
"She means Madge Weston who is
visiting my brother's family across
the street; the young lady has sud
denly become Polly's idol," explained
Aunt Madge hastily, marveling at the
great light which transformed the face
of the man before her, as the name
passed her lips.
Five minutes later he had mingled
hasty adieus and apologies and had
turned quick steps toward the house
across the way.
Aunt Madge, with a sympathetic lit
tle thrill for that other woman's com
ing joy, saw through the window the
door of the opposite house open and
close on Fairfield's stalwart form;
then Polly was surprised with a spas
modic hug and a fervent kiss from her
usually undemonstrative auntie.
Women as Inventors.
A writer in Cassier's Magazine cele
brates the inventive skill of women.
He notes in the long list of me
chanical devices "springing from the
fertile brain of American womanhood"
a machine for driving barrel hoops, a
steam generator, a baling press, a
steam and fume box, an automatic
fltor for elevator shafts, a rail for
street railways, an electric apparatus,
packing for piston rods, locomotive
wheels, a railway tie, a stock car, a
boring machine for drilling gun
stocks, etc. That is all very well, but
no woman 'has ever invented a ma
chine that will button her up the
back. She has to marry a man to get
that done with neatness and dispatch.
Future Living Conditions.
M. Jules Bois, the distinguished
French writer, who has discovered
much concerning ancient civilization,
predicts that in a hundred years' time
the great cities of Europe will be
practically uninhabited except for
business purposes during the daytime.
All classes will live in the country
or in garden cities, to which access
will be cheap and extremely rapid,
owing to the development of pneu
matic railways or flying cars. The
motor car will have gone completely
out of fashion, but the bicycle will
come again in favor, for a sort of fly
ing bicycle will be invented, which
will enable the rider to soar in mid
Korean Mining Industry.
The mining industry in Korea gives
employment, directly and indirectly,
to some 8,000 Koreans. As regards
copper deposits the Kapsan mine, in
the northeast of Korea, which is now
held by an American company, has
for centuries been worked by Koreans,
and preliminary surveys of the prop
erty revealed the possibilities of rich
deposits of the metal. Coal and iron
are widely diffused, but difficulties of
transport render the working of these
deposits, even where rich, impossible
at present except in the case of the
anthracite coal mines near Pyeng
Yang, which are under the control of
the Korean government.
Pictures Future for Rabbit.
A theorist on the rabbit problem
suggests that some day the rabbits

his skin thus improved, both as cloth

Five billions of dollars is the
amount of security demanded by the
government from its officers and em
ployes who have the handling of its
money; $1,000,000 is the amount paid
by the officers and employes to bond
ing companies for going on their

the premiums paid, is the amount the
bonding companies have been called
on to pay to the government for losses

Such, in brief, are the facts ascer

mission now investigating the subject,
and it has created great interest in
Washington, where the government
The investigation was occasioned by
an attempt, a few months ago, by the
bonding companies to increase their
premium rates from 200 to 600 per
The matter was partly investigated
at the recent special session, and a
law was enacted instructing the sec

Miore than 35 per cent. in excess of
the rates in force in 1908. Since then
officers and employes have found
great difficulty in procuring bonds.
So heavy was the burden imposed
by the new rates that the director of
the census went before congress at
its special session and asked that the
salary of his disbursing officer be in
creased $500 to enable him to pay the
premium, and congress did give him
an increase of $375 on that account.
The whole bonding business has had
a complete airing before the congres
slonal commission. For several years
there was no uniform schedule of
rates, different companies charging a
When Leslie M. Shaw was secretary
of the treasury he became dissatisfied
with the companies for what he
termed their recklessness in giving
bonds, in many cases the amount of
a single bond being double the total
assets of the securing company. He
issued an order that he would not ac
cept of any bond in excess of ten per
cent. of the capital and surplus of the
This called for a strong protest
from the companies, but the secretary
remained firm, and his ruling has
been followed by his successors. To
relieve themselves of a part of the
burden imposed by the heavy pre
mium demanded, the officers and em
ployes required to , give bond have
sulgested to the treasury department
an indemnity plan, doing away entire
ly with the Abonding system.
As the facts siow that the losses
are only about ten per cent. of the
premiums paid, it is suggested that,
in lieu of a bond, each bonded officer
or employe be required to deposit
with the government a sum equal to
25 per cent. of the premiums now
paid to the companies, and out of this
sum the government shall reimburse
itself for all losses.
When an officer or emliloye retires
from the service the amount so de
posited by him, less his pro rata share
of the losses, would be returned to
him. It is claimed that this plan will
prove one of actual economy to the
government, as the collection of
losses has hitherto been very expen
sive. It is said the post office depart
ment recently expended $30,000 to re
cover $20,000 of losses.
JEFFERSON STOLE THE RICE
Gov. Swanson of Virginia Tells How
Father of Democracy dot His
Seed for America.
Do the people who raise rice in
South Carolina, Louisiana, Texas, and
a number of other. Southern states,
as well as those who eat rice pudding,
curry of chicken with rice and rice
in other forms, know that the original
seed which produced rice in this coun
try was stolen by Thomas Jefferson?
"Thomas Jefferson was one of the
greatest men this country ever pro
duced," said Gov. Swanson of Vir
ginia, who naturally admires the great
statesman, on a recent visit to Wash
ington. "He introduced rice in this
country. When in Italy he gathered
up a lot of rice and put it in his over
coat pocket. The Italian government
would not allow the exportation of
rice, and so Jefferson took this meth
od of getting the seed, and brought it
to this country. That was the way
the rice industry in this country start
ed." The Virginia governor had a lot
more to say about what Jefferson did,
but this about rice is one of the sto
ries that seemed most striking.
We Are Eating Much Rice.
Rice forms the chief cereal food of
about one-half the world's population,
and wheat the chief cereal food of the
other half. Many persons who see
rice on the table about once a week
will doubtless be surprised to know
that the total production of rice in the
world is almost as great as that of
wheat, the crop of the former being
:about 175,000,000,000 pounds, and of
the latter 190,000,000,000 pounds.
In the United States the produc
tion and consumption of rice is rapid
ly increasing, the average crop of 100,
300,000 pounds of a few years ago hav
ing risen to over 600,000,000 pounds in
1908.-Illustrated Sunday Magazine.
Unhealthy, But They Like it.
"Washington certainly is an un
healthy place," said Senator Cummins
of Iowa. "I have noticed that every
time I come here, and I find the cli
mate of Iowa far more invigorating
than that of Washington. At the same
time" here there was a merry twinkle
in his eye, "you will observe that
there are plenty of us striving to
make our residences in Washington,
in spite of the alleged unhealthiness
of climate." And the senator at the
same moment, looked rather longing
ly toward the White House.

One reason Postmaster General
Hitchcock wanted Grandfield for post
master in the city of Washington was
because he intends to secure a uni
form system of management in all the
large post offices of the country. The
Washington office is to be a model
for the others, and Grandfield's knowl
edge of the postal business is to be
utilized to make the Washington office
just what the department would have
all the big offices in the country.
Hitchcock knows what Grandfield can
do, as Grandfield was chief clerk of
the first assistant's office when Hitch

< WATTERSON GIVES ADVICE
Tells Washington Newspaper Men
That Prying into Personal Affairs
t Henry Watterson, the most widely
I known journalist in the United States
at the present time, stopped In Wash
ington on his way home from Earope
and in a talk to the Washington news
3 paper men gave them a little advice.
He deplored the .tendency of pres
t ent-day journalism to pry into per
sonal affairs, and said that by their
methods the newspapers are causing
the people to fear and hate them. It
may be that the celebrated editor
could have addressed his remarks
with more propriety to the newspaper
managers than to the reporters. It is
quite possible that quite a number of
those who heard or read what Wat
terson had to say have been com
pelled at times to do the very prying
co - plained of and to ask impertinent
and insolent questions, but in all prob
ability they have done so under in
structions from "higher up."
To the credit of decent journalism,
It may be said that the large propor
tion of Washington correspondents
are not asked by their zlapers to en
gage in the kind of newspaper work
condemned by Mr. Watterson. For
the most part, the pursuit of news in
Washington is absolutely legitimate
and involves nothing that is either de
grading to the correspondent or offen
I sive to the people with whom he
comes in contact.
All the Mothers' Fault.
Dr. Wiley, the food expert, has opin
ions on other subjects as well as
those affiliated with nutrition. He
says that the misrepresentation going
on in the business world in regard to
food and other things to be sold may
be traced back to the training of chil
dren. He tells a story of a small girl
who did not pay her fare to the con
ductor as he passed her, and ex
plained to her companion that her
mother had told her never to pay her
fare unless asked for it. This sort of
training, he said, would make shop
lifters of some girls and in the case
of boys would tend to nefarious busi
ness schemes when they became men.

Because your case is a difficult one,
doctors having done you no good,
do not continue to suffer without
giving Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound a trial. It surely has cured
many cases of female ills, such as in.
flammation, ulceration, displacements,
fibroid tumors, irre rs, periodic
pins, backache, that bearing-down
feeling, indigestion, dizziness, and nor
vous prostration,. It bosts but a trilia
to try it, and the result is worth sell
lions to many suffering women.
