"Not bo long ajffi," he explained, "it man

he was arrested and the woman taken to tha

received word that she had regained con

from the terrible Injuries.
" 'Why did he beat you like that?' I asked.

"And It was useless to argue further, She

VON MOLTKE, not tho chief of staff of
tho present German army, but his greater
uncle, was taciturn It was sold that he
could remain silent in every languago ever
Invented, and German. It was disconcerting
to faoe this human nphinx, and Marie dels
linger, a famous German actress, now dead,
found It so one evening when fate placed
hor noxt to the general at a public dinner.
For moro than an hour Moltko had not ut
tered a sound, nopoatodly had the actress
sought to draw him Into conversation. Again
and again sho had laid traps for lilm, but
the wary old strategist wan too keen to be
duped. At last Gcistinger could restrain her
self no longer.
"General," she said, after both had been
muto for ton more long minutes, "let Us
change the subject."
And Moltko did by resuming a new silence.
THE Rev. C. R. Allison, rector of Trinity
Church, Rochester, who Is woll known In
this city, used to eat his meals across tho
streot from the parish house. Every morn
ing he mot an Irish nurseglrl, who Invariably
greeted him with, "Good marnln,' father;
God bless ye."
One morning, dressed for a fishing expedi
tion, ho again met tho girl. Sho looked at him
"Good marnln', father," she said hesi
tatingly, "If ye'ro a role one, but to the dlvvll
wld yo, If ye're not"
HAVE no fear, ye bachelors, for a. Judicial
opinion of tremendous Import has been
handed down to safeguard you and your
reputation. Justice Hendrick, of tho Supremo
Court of tho State of New York. Is tho Solon
who has rendered so signal a service to sin
gle mankind. It started when a nurse sued
the widow of a bank president for defama
tion of character. Tho learned Judge listened
patiently to all sides, took voluminous notes
and then handed down this decision:
"It Is proper for a young man to enter a
basement to pack a young lady's trunk," ho
holds. So now there Is no reason why you
should not be useful as well as ornamental.
IN THE village of Dormarvo, on the Rus
sian frontier, lives Hcdwlg Stavno, who
was 121 years old on October IE. and who
Is thought to be tho only human being allvo
today who saw Napoleon and his hordes
march upon Moscow. "Wrinkled, bent and
with quavering voice, she tells how tho
French soldiers commandeered her chickens
and ducks, because they would not eat her
black bread; crooning, sho recites the tale
of tho retreat, the desolation, the horrors of
that disastrous campaign. And now she sees
again an invasion of tho "bear that walks
like a man." What she thinks Is not knqwn.

ALL the heroes are not found on battle
. fleldB a bromidlc expression true, but
one based upon many precedents. In so far
as physical courage went, It Is doubtful if
there ever was a braver man than Paulus
Stephanus Krugnr, President of the South
African Republic the man who forced Brit
ain to pay a price that "staggered human
ity." It was on March 4, 1S90, that tho
writer aw Oom Paul give a display of
derrlng do amazing in its neviness.
For months the foreign residents of
Johannesburg had been demanding railroad
connection with tho coast. For months
Kruger had been telling them to wait. On
the date mentioned a great mass-meeting
was held on the grounds of tho Wanderers'
Athletic Club on Hospital Hill. Speaker
after speaker denounced the Boer Governf
ment until revolt was in the air. Sud
denly, over tho crest of a hill, appeared an
open barouche drawn by four horses. In
the carriage sat Oom Paul alone.
He mounted the speakers' stand. Facing
20,000 Infuriated men, he didn't quail. His
heavy blue eyes flashed Are. Drawing him
self upright from his customary stoop tho
old man stood nix feet tall he began In a
rasping voice not an apology not prom
ises not retraction.
"You foreigners," he growled In a voice
of thunder," if you don't like the way wo
Boers run this country, get out!"
For an hour he abused us scolded us de
fied us. And we, 20,000 strong, were cowed
by the superb courage of a lonely old man.
THERE Is yet another phase of so-called
heroism, which Is characteristic of tho
professional soldier the sacrifice of any and
everything to the causo for which one is
fighting. Old Field Marshal "Wrangel, of
Prussia, made such sacrifices. In 1E48 thn
revolutionists had captured Berlin, nnd tho
field marshal, a withered little man, who sat
on his horse like a monkey on a camel, was
In command of the besieging governmental
troops. Wrangel sent word to the revolu
ists that he would enter Berlin through the
Brandenburger Thor the next morning. The
reply came an hour later:
"If you enter Berlin, wo will hang your
wife out of the window of your palace, so
that you will sea her as you come through
The next morning, Wrangel rode tnto Ber
lin at the head of his troops and as he
passed through the Thor. he muttered sotto
"I wonder whether they've REALXiY
hanged the old woman?"
They had not!
