AS To""pTfzLES.
(Chicago Record.)
One evening last week Mrs. Williams
asked her husband to step back into
the kitchen and open a big box of gro?
ceries which had come from town on I
that day. Mr. Williams ripped off the
side of < the box and cut a number of
heavy twine fastenings, and then be
gan handing out the various bundles,
which the lady of the house set in or-!
derly array upon the kitchen table.
"Sugar," she said as a hup> bag was
revealed. "and coffee?starch?oat
flakes?crackers?what's that thing?"
Mr. Williams had dug from the cham?
ber of household mysteries a small
package which had no particular form
and which rattled a bit as he handeld
it.
"Feels like a hook and staple, or a
spoon hook for trolling. Look out or
it'll jab you." said Mr. Williams.
Eemininty. however, was not content
to guess at the identity of the small
parcel when by holding to the light the
printed paper which was twistetf about
it some declaration of object and pur?
pose could be gained. She investigated
"The mysterious ball and the won?
derful ring?the greatest ano most bat?
hing of all puzzles." Then she said:
"Oh, pshaw! Ir's some foolish puzzle
which the grocer-put in as tin adver?
tisement. Throw it out into the street."
"By no means." said Mr. Williams,
with quick decision. "It's valuable."
He finished his unpacking before he ex?
plained why he thought so.
"Now." he said, after tin- packages,
had been properly laiti away. "I'll tell
you why that puzzle is a Rood thing."
"Well, you'll have to use a great deal
of argument to convince inc." Mrs. Wil?
liams responded. "I think of all the
foolish ways for a person to waste
time, that which is lost in trying to get
a ring off a chain so as to solve a puz?
zle is the most blamable."
"1 know. That's the usual narrow
vii w?excuse me. my dear. 1 speak sim?
ply in a general way and without in?
tending to be particular as to your case.
That's the usual view taken by people,
because people do not usually look be?
yond the surface of things to see what
is below. On the face of it I suppose it
does seem silly for a man with a bald
head and four grown children to s?t
around working away at a little brass
ring which is caught fast on some links
'of steel wire. But. I tell you it is really
a blessing to a man to do it. Why?
The reason is simple. It rests his mind.
It takes ail thoughts of business away
from him. He is not worried by the
values of grain or stocks,- nor is he
afiaid his business house' is going to
shut down and leave him without em?
ployment. You give a man a good,
reasonable, bard puzzle and he will get
; over all his troubles and woes, tempo?
rarily at any rate. 1 knew of a man
who was sentenced to the penitentiary
for life and he was not depressed, be
| cause at the time of his railroad jour
'ney to the penitentiary he busied him?
self on the train with a puzzle, and he
was more worried by the rule of the
thing which forbade him to bend one
of the straight wires than he was by
the thought that he would never again
be allowed to sei- the city or the river
or the greRt tall buildings or his little
home which he had spent years in get?
ting. O, yes: the puzzles have their us s
and they are good. Let's see that one,
anyway."
He took the puzzle, which was in
seven sections, and which was made up.
aside from the little brass ring, of wire,
wooden balls and a metal disk. Then
he looked over the Instructions contain?
ed on the paper which had inclosed the
thing:
"Get tlu- ring off the chain without
breaking an/ joints or bending any of
the wires."
He viewed the puzzle critically for a
moment and then smiled.
"Of course," he remarked, "when I
said that a puzzle is something useful
I meant that it must be a hard puzzle.
A puor little easily worked puzzle'like
this one certainly is objectionable, be?
cause no skill is required to solve the
proposition. I see how it is-to be done.
And t want to stop right here, my dear,
to tell you something about the work?
ing of puzzles. The way to-'start Is to
hold the thing up to view and mentally
determine what is to be done and how,
and then expeditiously do it. This
tiling- or twisting and fooling at it In
a haphazzai-d way is no way at all.
It is just a case of accident if you get
it right and then you don't know how
it is to be done any more than you did
before. That way of going at a puzzle
is like a carpenter starting in to build
some kind of a house without plans or
specitications or drawings. He takes a
saw and cuts up all the lumber in sieht
and nails it together just as he hap?
pens to reach it and without regard
for symmetry or purpose he constructs
an edifice that is like a lumber vard
struck by a cyclone. That is to say.
he doesn't do that either, for a car?
penter works by prearranged plans and
knows just w hat to dp. Hut if he were
to start about his job in the way I have
described he w ool.I I.xactly "like the
man trying to work a puzzle by twist?
ing ami pushing and hauling in a ran?
dom fashion."
"Do you know how to do this puzzle?
Have you found out the plan'.' .Mrs.
Williams inquired.
"Oh. yes; it is this way."
He held it up an.I continue.I bis .lis
"V.iu see this chain is arranged in a
double loop in combination with a slip
knot. If it was siring instead of un?
bending wire all I should have to do
would be to pull this end. so. and throw
open this loop. s.v. and there you would
be. As it is I .1.. this." An.I he took
one end of the wire an.I started it
through one of the elongated hoops.
But when it got half way something
seemed to be wrong.
"I don't believe that is the way." Mrs.
Williams observed. "Because you may
notice, dear, that the wooden ball is
much too big to go through there."
"By George, that's so." Mr. Wollam's
said, looking studiously tit (he tangle of
ball ami wire an.1 ring ami disk. "Still."
persistently, "Dint's the way It ought
to. go. It's that double loop system. 1
tell you." >>
"But. the little paper says it all works
easily when you get it right, and that
there need be no squeezing or wrench?
ing:"
"Yes?I know?and that's right?of
course; but it seems to m. ? well. I'll try
it at the oth.-r .-nil. I'll turn this ball
down over the other dofunny and bring
the disk up to?ah. yes! That's it'. Aha!
Aha! Vou bet you!" He shot the ball
across the back and made a few nim?
ble movements with his lingers, talking
jubilantly as lie worked. At last he
ceased to accompany himself with
speech, and then, after some moments
of silent manipulation, hit., the puzzle
in the palm of his hand, a pyramidal,
gleaming heap.
"jOh, have you got it off?" inquired
Mrs. Williams. "I'm glad, but still I
believe you did just what you said you
oughtn't to do. 1 believe you did it in
a random accidental way. without
carefully calculating the why and how.
There's no credit to you for getting the
ring off the chain that-"
"Oh, don't be so exercised in spirit.
Tf it's any comfort to you I'll tell you
that I haven't got it off. It's on there
still."
"Oh." said Mrs. Williams, in grateful
confusion.
Mr. Williams took it up again and
looked intently at it. Then he spoke.
"The man." he said, "who printed
that piece of paper with lying words
about this puzzle is a fool as well as
a. knave. He Hod when he said that the
ring could be taken oft*, and he is. a fool
for believing that any on.- will credit
Iiis statement. It's the most preposter?
ous and ridiculous think I ever heard
of. You might as well say you could
crowd the sun through a croquet wick?
et as to say thai that ball could be run
through that loop so as to let the ring
out."
"But the paper doesn't say anything
about the ball-"
"It's ait the same. That's the only
way to get it off. The man is a. fool?a
silly, nonsensical, doddering fool. An.I
the only other fool in the world who
excels him is the fool wh>> wastes time
trying to do his fool of a puzzle?or any
other puzzle!" and he threw the cou
livance upon the table and stalked an?
gry away. "1 should think you wo<ai?
be in bettor business yourself." he call?
ed back, seeing that Ml--. Williams had
picked up the puzzle.
Mrs. Williams nervously twisted the
bits of m.-tal in her lingers, without
any special (object, ami suddenly she
felt something separate, ami opening
her hand she discovered that the ring
was off. But she was a good and faith?
ful and loving wife, and did not t. II
her husband.

NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE.
NEW YORK, July 14.?The stock
market showed a firm resistance t>.
pressure all day and when the news
was received that Santiago had surren?
dered on our terms a vigorous upward
movement set In which wiped out a
large part of the losses incurred in yes?
terday's bear raid. The fear of the in?
troduction of yellow fever In this coun?
try if it should gain o foothold among
our forces had as much to do with yes?
terday's decline as did the fears of a
military set back. This was indicated
by the sharp recovery today in sue
stocks as Louisville and Nashville and
Southern railway preferred. There v
a brief period of depression at the
opening due to sympathy with London,
where the belief prevailed that the
Spaniards would refuse to surrender
Santiago and thus necessitate a long
siege.
Net gains in most active stocks were
near a point, and in some cases, nota?
bly Omaha and Hawaiian commercial,
gains exceeded two points. The entire
absorption of the government loan by
small subscriptions seems practically*
assured. There is no doubt that this
will release considerable sums of money
held bv the banks, corporations and
syndicates as reserves against bids for
large amounts of the bonds. As an ob?
ject lesson of the wealth and resources
of the country this subscription of a
$200.000.000 loan bearing interest below
the ruling savings bank rate is expect?
ed to have a striking effect.
Tie- movement in speculative bonds |
continues large today and the upw:
course of prices was resumed, traders
covering short contracts put out 3
