whom I like and admire. Later I
joined some of the train crew and
there resulted a discussion which has
been productive of the nonsensical
yarns about myself.
"These gentlemen and I did not
agree and it became not merely a
discussion but an altercation, with
results which, I know, they now re

unnecessary to say more to the men
who have worked with me m forty-

that it is better to suffer a little m
the cause of common humanity than
to engage in lawsuits."
Patrolman Daniel Weber and Pat

He was very quiet when brought into
the police court and gave -his name
as Medill McCormick of Chicago. He

DIARY OF FATHER TIME
It is not so very many years since
the Mediterranean was infested with
Algerine pirates, who preyed upon
the commerce of the civilized nations.
These nations in order to purchase
exemption from such ravages adopt
ed the ruinous policy of paying the
Dey of Algiers an annual tribute. In
consideration of the tribute the Dey
agreed that his pirate ships should
confine themselves to the Mediter
ranean and should not attack the
vessels of such orations as made pay
ment. Great Britain, however, with the
purpose of injuring France, induced
the pirates to extend their depreda
tions to the Atlantic, by which Amer
ican commerce suffered greatly, and
the government of the United States
was obliged to purchase safety by
paying the shameful tribute.
