growth, and other men sat around the
court house yard from the time those
men went out until the time they came
back. They said they did not have
time. If we have any resect or care

not go because they wanted to go. but
because it was their duty, and we
1hlnk it the duty of every colored man

UNCLE SAM'S PENSION ROLLS.

agencies throughout the country
every three months Is given In a requi
sition Just forwarded by the secretary
of the interior to the secretary of the,

aggregate of $10,955,000, and Is to be
paid to small armies of veterans from
half a dozen of the agencies durlug

are made at each agency quarterly,
but for convenience sake the agencies
are divided into three groups, each
group paying off on a different month.
Following are the figures for March:
Boston. Mass.. $1,840,000; Augusta,
Me., $700,000; Washington, D. C, $1,

Not Usually So Fatal.
A man from Pittsburg was Intro
duced to Representative Littlefleld of
Maine the other day. "I spoke In
Pittsburg last fall." said Littlefleld.
"Yes." replied the Pittsburg man, "I
ran for office there and I was beaten
by only 7.0u0." "Heavens!" said Lit
tleficld. "I am not usually so fatal as
that. I spoke out in Omaha in 1900
for 'Dave' Mercer and they didn't beat
him until 190!."

Herr Schilling, an Afrlcnn traveler,
shot it near Kllmandscharo. in Ger

not badly wounded, and he soon suc

This is the first adult "guereza"
which has ever been seen in captiv
ity In Europe. Three young apes of
a somewhat similar type, whose home
is in Abyssinia, were captured some
time ago, but died very soon alter
they were photographed.
An interesting fact about the "gue
rezas" Is that they hold a regular con
cert in their native woods every night,
which, while not very musical, since
It consists merely of a succession of
growls, produces a startling effect on
those who hear It for the first time.
Was Too Highly Honored.
Senator Cullom was in an elevator
the other day when someone shook
hands with him rather effusively, say
ing: 'How do you do. Senator Fair
banks? I am very glad to see you."
Mr. Cullom did not correct the effu
sive person's error. The latter got out
at the next floor and the Senator con
tinued for another (light. As be
stepped out of the elevator a second
stranger grasped his hand and said
"Why, Senator Proctor, 1 am glad to
see you. How are things progressing
in Vermont?" Stranger No. 2 entered
the cage and Shelby walked away in a
slightly duzed condition. In telling a
friend of the mistaken greetings he
said: "One would have been a good
many, but to be taken for Fairbanks
and Proctor inside of Ave minutes
was really too much."

THE FACE AND THE COLLAR.
Easy Means by Which a Stout Man
May Make Himself Look Thin.
Men who do not want to look any
fatter in the face than they can help
have an easy means of accomplish
ing their purpose. Not all of them
are aware of the effect that may be
created by the form of a collar or
Ths' stout man who wants to 1-j U
as tliiu as ho can," said the haber
dasher's clerk, "ought to wear a tie
of tin' kind Known us a fourinhund.
Preferably It should lie dark in color
and drawn tight. That carries down
the line or the lace ami lengthens It
to a degree that tends to make the
luce look thinner. '
"Another aid to making a man look
thin Is in the height of his collar.
Stout men who waul to look thin
should wear high collars and closed
ones. Any collar that opens In front
mnkes one look stouter under neatly
every circumstance. Such collars are
becoming to the thin nun.
"The fat man should avoid the Kind
of tic that has a horizontal effect. This
will add pounds to bis appearand
in his fac e at least. On tho contrary,
tills cross effect will make the thin
mail look stout."--New York Sun.
GOD WAS NOT DISPLEASED.
How Little One Obtained Absolution
for a Fib.
Little Dorothy Perkins was usually
ft truthrul child. When slie wus not
truthful she was plausible.
Coming in from her walk one morn
ing she Informed her mother Unit she
had seen a lion in the park.
No amount of persuuslou or reason
ing wavered her statement one hair's
breadth. S4i at night, when she slipped
down beside her knee, her mother
said: "Ask God to forgive you for
that fib, Dorothy."
Dorothy hid her face for a minute;
then she looked straight into her
mother's eyes with her own shining
like stars, and said: "I did ask him,
mamma dearest, and he said: Don't
mention it. Miss Perkins. Thai big
dug has often fooled me.' "
Yes. Children Do Lie.
Do children lie? Yes; constantly,
persistently, and universally, says Kin
dergarten Magazine. A child docs not
tell the truth, because he could not.
He docs not know the truth, and his
approximation to the truth Is much
vaguer than ours. And there are cer
tain qualities of bis mind which tnuko
It Inevitable that he should pervrt
the truth. In the llrst place, truth is
synonymous with knowledge. He does
not know what truth Is. In the second
place (and it is the same with us),
children gradually approximate the
truth. They have their Ideas of truth.
In thu third place, the child's imagin
ation drives him oftcu to tell what is
ntiui ml wiat.
