l)ut Ponscarino had said that tho Arabs
wcro patriotic, when Bab Axioua Cut
in tud said something which I shall
vqpeat as soon as I havo told you about
liab Azzoun himself.
Brlofly, then, Uab Azzoun had been
born twenty-nlno years boforo this
time, at Tlomcon. of Kabylo paronts
his papa was a sholk had boon
transplanted to Franco at Iho ago of
ton, and had flourished thoro in n truly
Tcmarkablo mannor. Ho had Graduat
ed fifth from PoU technique; be had
written books that had boon "oourron
nccs par l'Acadcmio;" ho had bocomo
naturallzod;ho had been prominent in
Jiolitlcs no ono can cut a wido swath
In Paris in anything without hitting
Hgainst la politique; ho had ocoupiod
important positions in two ombasslos
iio was a diplomat of no mean uuali
tics; ho had lots of Influenco; ho drossod
in faultloss French fashion; ho had
owned Crusador; ho had lost money on
him; ho had applied to tho goverrpont
for tho ofllco of -Souschof des bureaux
Arabesdansl'Oran," in order to re
coup; ho hod obtained It; ho had como
on with "us." and was now on4hls his
first visit to his fathorland since his
tenth year, on his way to his post.
And when Ponscarino had spokon
thus about tho patriotism of tho Arabs,
Uab Azzoun mndo him nniwnr; ..t,
Arabs aro not sufficiently cducatod to
bo truo patriots."
"Bah!" said Santandcr. "a man does
not requiro to bo oducatod In order to
bo a patriot. Ana indoed. tho rudest
nations havo .over been tho most do
"V03," Baid Bab Azzoun, -but it is
m?,rTOW and acr? solflsh patriot.
'I can't sco that, "put In Ponscarino;
. "a patriot is llko an ogg-ho is olthor
good or bad. '1 hero is no such thing
as a ood enough ogg'; thoro is no
tuch thing as a yood enough patriot'
if a man Is ono at all ho Is a per
foctone," . r
I ngroo, " answered Bab Acttmn-
rf ,.Ut.sut Vun no moroor less
narrow. Listen nnd I will oxtrtain"
ho raised himsolf from tho deck on
his clbov nnd gestured with tho am
ber mouth-pieco of his chibouk in
.looking backward upon tho gradual
development of patriotism in tho minds
of monsinco tho days whon they first
began to band together, jou can soo
It pass through five very distinct
stages. Patriotism, first, was but
lovo of family of paronts and kin
drcd; but. thon as tho family grows and
expands into tho trlbo. it inn
merely a largo family becomes tho
object of affection, of patrlotlo dovo
tion. This Is tho socond stago. In
tho third stago, tho trlbo haa sought
protoctlon behind tho inclosuro of
walls. It is tho ago of cities; patriot
Ism Is tho dovotlon to tho city. In
, tho noxt porlod, patriotism means nf
Xoctlon for tho state, forlho country,
for tho province; whllo wo of to-day
. form tho latest, but not tho last, link
of tho lengthening chain by honoring
loving, and dosorvlng tho country
nbovo all considerations, lm thv nf
tribe, or town, or tenuio. Yet I do
not bollovo this to bo tho last, tho
highest, tho noblost form of patriotism.
"No," said Uab Azzoun. "this dovol
opment shall go on, over expanding,
over mounting, until, carried upon
Its topmost crest, wo attain to that
hoight, from which wo can look down
tipon tho wot Id as our country, hu

Hit) Old Question of DIar Women
ntdo Asirldd Como Up Again
nose Coghlun'a Acting Liable to
Start tho Crnzcj
Roso Coghlan looks so mightily
fcrottv and so daintllv graceful in her
hew play that thcro Is a fair prospect
that the coming winter will seo tho
fashionablo ladles of New York riding
Istride. Mis Coghlan pranced about
the stago horseback, holding her place
So firmly and without apparent etfori
'hat women are beginning to think
diat, after all, thero isn't anything so
ccrribly immodest in riding a horse
Do not blinddcr and do not shriclc
if courso many things aro permitted
upon the stage that wnuld bo frowned
j pou in real life. Ballet dancing,
tights, lence-britches ond war paint
ire Accessary and every-dny stago prop
erties, 1ut that does notmalco them
popular on tlld strict.
But with tho riding-habit It is differ
ent. Jt really is. A woman who can
ride horseback uoon a side saddle is
almost a nove ty among her acquaint
ances. If you do not belicvo this pro
pose the subject to a party of women,
and one after another will mournfully
egret that she cannot keep her seat in
ho saddid becauso the position tires
!.. . M.nt dirt 1.Artnna nrnmnfd. and
that her side v. ill acha for days after
the effort And so it is that equestrian
ism for women is so uncommon that a
woman on horsoback always causes
people to turn and glvo hor a second
Miss Coghlan and other graceful
riders claim that if somo compromise
could bo found between the present
conventional woman's riding habit and
tho suit which is Worn by a man tho
stylo would iramcdIaUly becomo pop
ular, and would "take" that is, if
ono or tno leaders of fashion would
start out with it Just look at this
woman as she sits on her horse. Is
there anything more immodest in it
than there would bo If fcho wero seated
on a side saddlo with her skirt dravtZ1
so tightly as to reveal every line of her
German women generally ride in this
way. So do the Mexicans, tho Rouman
ians and tho Austrlans.
The picture here given was taken at
the last bone show in Berlin, and tho
costumo was worn by a young Mexi
can lady. Tho Dodico is made in the
usual jacket shapo and the looso sldrt
is divided up the front and back. It is
pjovided with buttons so that it can
bo opened or closed at wllL
When the rider wishes to dismount
and walk sho can button up her skirt,
front and back, and it appears liko an
ordinary street costume. During the
bharpest gallop it covers and drapes
her limbs, and should she mount and
dismount ever so awkwardly tho ap
pearance Is decent liencath the folds of
the sldrt aro wide cloth or velvet
trousers. High top boots aro worn
with them and a small round felt hat
or a high beaver.
At the most fashionable ridlncr
Fchool in rew lork eicht women were
found who signified their willingness
to go for a canter In tho park in such a
habit. But alas, when tho timo came
for tho start they wero not bold
enough to sally forth.
HE WAS A BA.RON
lint Itevcrsc Had Irlieit Hint to
Driving Street Cars.
Hundreds of street-car conductors
and dr.vcrs gathered at tho morgue of
tho general hospital on tho morning of
July 20, according to tho Vlennn Press,
to attend tno funeral of their lato
comrade, Car-Driver Erwin Baron Frey
von Schocnstoin, tho last malo mem
ber of a very noble family.
The heavily-draped hearse, drawn
by four horses, was quite in contrast
with tho simplo mourners who fol
lowed it and tho costly metal casket in
which tho remains rested, hidden un
der many costly floral gifts.
When Baron Schoenstcin becamo of
ago he inherited several million florins
ond big estates, which ho squandered
in riotous living nnd speculation.
Everything gono ho resigned his com
mission as first-lieutenant in tho Dra
goons, and when confronted by poverty
ho did not resort to tho pistol, but took
a moro phllobophlo view of lifo and ac
cepted a position as supervisor of the
street railways. Once In a while when
brought into contact in a business way
with thoso who in former years wero
only too glad to toady to him, the
baron became offensive to such a de
gree tnat at last his employers found
themselves obliged to reduco him to
tbe rank of car-driver.
This position ho filled with military
punctuality, and only onco in a while,
when ho received a small remittance
from somo relative, did he absent him
self long enough to spend It.
Tho Baron's widow and her brother,
a captain in tho dragoons, attended
tlio funeral, tho expenses of which
wero defrayed by a well-known Vien
na Countess. Herr von Turban, the
director of tho Tramway company,
and several prom'nent officials attended

A Yonnz Woman -folio Fancies
la an Operatic; Singer.
Crazy pcoplo are a funny1 lot,'1 "aid
a young gentleman to a reporter", ''I
havo a friend who Js warden of tho
asylum," he continued, "and I was
out there last Sunday. They showed
mo thrc-ufh all tho wards, and wnilo
some of the cases wcro absolutely pit
iful thero wcro others that wrre de
cidedly humorous. Thero is one
young woman out there" who is as
pretty tts a peach, saucy little retrousse
nose, big black eyes, a cnrly
bang, pretty month, and dlvim llttlo
figure. Sho is only insane on one point
bho thinks she is Marie Jensen, and to
that end Insists upon dressing as tho
operatic singer did in tho 'Oolah.' Sho
picked up her unlquo costumo bit by
bit. made part of It, begged part of It,
nnd had part of it given to hor. She
insisted on arraying herself in it on
what sho is pleased to think itato-oc-casions,
and so long as sho isn t inter
fered with Is as cane, to all appear
ances, as anybody. I was walking
through tho ward with the warlcn and
ho called out: 'Miss .lanseil, como
here! They say yor.'ro all dressed up
"She came, a dainty llttlo thing la
b!a;ic velvet knickerbockers, long slllc
stockings, a plaited front skirt, a black
velvet jacket, and a Itnot of red ribbon
at her throat. Sho was as pretty as a
picturo and gushed most charmingly
when I was Introduced to her. I asked
her about the costume.
" 'Oh. I mado it nearly all myself,'
she said. 'I havo plenty of timo now
that I'm not on tho road, and tho pco
plo havo very klndlv furnished mc with
tho material and somo of tho things I
couldn't make. Isn't it pretty?'
"I said it was very pretty. 'This
piece of ribbon.' she continued, 'Dr.
gave mc. He's such a lively f:l-
low. Do you know him? I think h 's
almost ns handsome as you are.'
" 'Here, here, said tho warden,
'what's this? I thought jou wcro so
awfully in love with Dr. , naming
one of the other attendants.
'Well, what of it? You mean old
thing! You don't need discourage this
yonntrman if I were, do you? And
cry much displeased Miss Jansen
skipped aw ay to be seen no more."
BILLY M'ULORY TALKS.
He Writes for a ISenr York l'aporon
tlie Leading" Topics.
Billy McGlory, "tho worst man in
New York," is not so bad after all. At
least such would bo the impression of
ono reading a recent article, con
tributed by him to tho New Yorh
World. Very few people could guess
Billy's politics, although ho has kept a
low saloon dlvo all his lifo and was
himself born in a saloon, he believes
m the abolition of the liquor Unfile.
"Had it not been for the liquor busi
ness," ho says, "1 would not now bo
known as tho worst man In New York.
1 might be president of the United
States." He reads all tho newspapers,
is well up in politics. "I grew very
tired tho other evening at a speech
mado in a socialistic meeting. Tho
speaker roared at the S50.000 Vander
bilt ball, whllo he was living on bread.
Why did he mako mo tired.
"Because where did that 810,000 go?
Why, it went to pay tho docorators
who strung tho roses on tho wall, tho
peoplo who raised the roses; it wont 10
the musicians, to tbe confectioners; it
went to the dressmakers who made tho
ladies costumes, to the gas companies
and their helpers who furnished the
lignt. It went right to tho very peoplo
woo wero 'kicking.' Tho more money
spent the bettor for everybody."
LITTLE ZINTKE LANUN.
An Indian Girl Dabr That 'War
Found at Wounded Knee,
On the first through train which ar
rived at Denver, Col., over the new
Rock Island route the other dav were
a party of editors from Des Moines,
Council Bluffs, Omaha, Lincoln, Bea
trice and Fairbury. Thoy breakfasted
at the Albany and were entertained by
tho Governor and Mayor.
In tho party is a fiftccn-months-old
Indian baby, which was found upon
tho battlefield of Wounded Kneo after
the defeat of tho Sioux by United
States troops. It has been adopted by
Mrs. Colby and was christened Zlntko
Lanuni, which means in tho Sioux
tonguo tho waif of tho field of Wounded
Knee. It was on tho fourth day after
tho battlo that tho child was found
besido its dead mother. Its feet and
ono sido of its face wcro frozen. It
was given in caro of an Indian
woman to nurse and soon showed
no traco ot its exposure and
suffering. Mrs. Colby obtained per
mission to ndopt tho child, but she was
hidden by the Indians and it was only
by dint of bribery that its whereabouts
was discovered. Tlio Indians wero
given orders on tho post-trader and
wnilo tncy were malting purcnascs sno
was smuggled out of camp and drives
to the nearest railway station, nnd
thenco taken to Beatrice, Neb.
Mrs. Colby has legally adopted the
child and proposes to educate her and
train her to a useful life.
She is a bright child, very observing
and quite mischievous. Her especial
delight is a pony or horse, and she will
coo away in her baby fashion at sight
of one, and seems not to show the
least fear, but will clinch her fingers
