What Came of
Tho train was standing In tho depot,
tho cnglno had backed down and cou
pled on, and tho conductor walked rap
idly forward, making motions to tho
engineer to pull out.
A boyish looking fellow nnd a girlish
looking maiden sat In tho snmo scat
waving adieus to n party of young
people outside. As tho train started
a shower of rlco cnino in nt the open
window, and shouts of merriment,
mingled with adieus, died away in tho
distance. Tho young man looked
ehcoplsh; tbo girl blushed crimson.
Tho train was an express, which was
not scheduled to stop for two hours,
and that a hundred miles from tho
starting point; consequently tho con
ductor did not hurry to tnko tip tbo
tickets. Tho young couple said Uttlo
to each other, nnd what was said came
mostly from tho young man, who was
trying to pacify the girl about tbo rlco
throwing. Nothing more noticeable
than this occurred till the young man
was heard to exclaim:
Ho was plunging his bands Into his
pockets, ouo after another, nnd when
he got through them nil began over
"Whatorcr In tho world Is ltr said
"1'ockotbook gone, with all tho mon
ey nnd the tickets."
Tbo voices In tills part of tho young
couple's dialogue .were not suppressed:
Indeed Uiey could bo heard by tho
"I believe It was Dill Slocum did It,"
said tho swain. "Ho wns monkeying
around mo In the depot. He must
havo done It for a Joke."
"U'm! Jokel Ho did It for spite.
Ho was jealous."
"Jealous of whom?"
Tho girl mado no reply to this. In
deed, tbo passengers sitting near need
ed no reply to Judge of tbo situation.
Tho couplo began to tnlk over their
loss In lower tones, and tho mora they
talked the less they liked It. To bo
left on a train speeding far nway with
out n cent to pay their fares was a
very uninviting condition. Tbo young
man looked rueful, and tbo girl began
to cry. Presently tbo door of Uie car
opened and tho conductor cutcrcd nnd
began to tnko up tickets. As he ap
proached tbo young couple the young
man went through bis pockets again,
though this time bo was doing It to
glvo tbo conductor some premoni
tion of what was to come. Tho girl
sobbed aloud. When tho ofllclal stood
In front of the couple and reached out
for tho tickets tho young man told him
bis story nnd begged hlin to pass them
through, but the heartless conductor
said that they must get off at tho 11 rat
stop and went on punching tickets.
All this was too much for a benevo
lent looking gentleman sitting near,
who arose, took his bat In bis hand
and walked through the car taking up
a collection. All the world loves at
lover, and a bride and bridegroom
placed In such a situation just starting
on their wedding trip appealed to tho
sympathies of every ono in tho car.
When tbo bcnovolcnt gentleman bad
visited all ho went to tho girl and
poured a lot of bills and coin into her
lap. Sbo looked up at their benefactor
with a happy smile that should havo
repaid him amply for what ho had
done. But ho wanted something more.
"A kiss from tho bride, please."
Tbo girl colored up to the roots of
her hair, and tbo benevolent gentleman
bent and, taking her pretty young faco
In his two bands, raised it and Im
printed a kiss, whereupon there was
a spontaneous burst of laughter, acconi-

Any brldo and groom under such
circumstances would be embarasscd,
and tho passengers did not think bard
of tills youthful couplo that they did
not respond to tho friendly spirit by
which they bad been relieved from an
unpleasant position. Their faro was
paid, and there could be no reason for
further worry, and yet there scorned
something unsettled. The youth was
whispering to tho girl, apparently en
deavoring to obtain her consent to
something be bad proposed. Several
hours passed, during which tho train
kept up Its monotonous clatter, and tho
young couplo seemed still uneasy. At
last tbo girl was observed to put her
band Into that of the young man and
say something softly. In a few mut
ates bo arose and, going to U10 gen
tleman collector, said something to
bim which seemed to surprise hliu
"You don't mean ltl Why didn't you
Tbo young man said something more;
the geutleman roso and asked:
"Is thero a clergyman present-?"
Tbcro was no response.
"This young gentleman and lady are,
very conscientious. They have ncccpt

aro a brldo and groom. They aro not
Thero was a moment's silence, and
then somo 0110 shouted:
"Then they'd better bo right off."
"That's tbo point. The lady has con
sented to what sho never dreamed of
when sho entered tbo car a wedding."
Ono of tho passengers went from cur
to car for a clergyman and at last
found ono and brought him to tho scene
of tho comedy.
If the whole train could not get In
ono car to witness tho wedding all
congratulated tho bride, and another
Mllcctlon was insisted on to enablo
others to contribute, tills time to a
wedding present. When tho couplo
reached their destination a committee

The suggestion comes from the

Alcohol is, in its first production,
an extremely cheap product. Ex
perts say that, but for the tax, 94
per cent, alcohol could be manu
factured and sold in this country
for 15 or even 10 cents a gallon. As
a matter of fact, the interiifil reve
nue tax on such product is upon
the same basts as on distilled bever
ages. The basis is $1.10 per gallon
on 50 per cent, alcohol, and the
greater strength of commercial
alcohol subjects it to something
more than $2 a gallon, the equi
valent of from 1300 to 2000 per
cent.au valorem. Hits is an .in
defensible tax, which none of our
industrial competitors among the
nations think of imposing.
The benefits to be derived from
reducing the price of so important
an industrial material as alcohol to
one-twentieth of the present price
extend to the lowliest products the
refuse of the farm, and from thence
they extend through almost every
feature ol our industrial life. The
list of articles in daily use that
would be cheapened by free alcohol
is very long.
It is, however, in its coming
employment as fuel that the great
est revolution in the use ot alcohol
is to be expected. The develop
ment of internal combustion en
gines, the automobile and the
motor boat has created a tremen
dous demand for liquid fuels suita
ble to such mechanism. Alochol,
considered by many the safest and
best, has been absolutely prohibi
tive in cost. Gasoline, the only
substitute available, lias constant
ly risen in price as the demand
has increased. Alcohol is also de
scribed as a better fuel for cook
ing purposes than coal or gasoline,
and, tinder an incandescent mantle,
it serves as an excellent ilium i
naut. Indeed, the promises made
on behalf of free commercial alcohol,
most of which have been rea
lized in other.'coutitries, are practi

There is probably no medeciue

than Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera

been in general use for over thirty
years and each successive epidemic
of Diarrhoea and dysentery during

proved its superiority over all simi

and prompt cures of this remedy
have won for it the confidence of

its use has failed to give relief.
