I DEACON GREY'S f
I CHOICE. !
BY HELEN WHITNEY CLARK. ?
"Well," Mrs. FerobiaCymouds laid
aside her new poke-bonnet, with ita
lavender ribbons, and slipped off her
plum-colored alpaca dress, while a
smile of satisfaction spread itself over
ber rather sharply marked features.
"If Deacon Grey don't mean some
thing by his attentions then I'm mis
taken." It was prayer meeting night,
and Deacon Grey had just escorted
the widow to her domicile. "This is
the third time hand-running that he
took me home evening; beside last
Sunday was two weeks ago that he
walked to church with me."
Mrs. Ferobia'p method of expres
sion was somewhat mixed, but, ber
facts were undeniable.
The deacon had escorted her to and
from evening prayer meeting on
several occasious, and had thus be
come the subject of much gossip
among the village folks.
"Deacon Grey's aspruciu' u^,"they
said. "Lookin' round for a wife, of
course. Wal, he mont do worse,
though the Widow Cymonds is poor
as a church-mouse, fur as property's
They said nothin' of Widow Cy
monds' temper, however, which was
as uncomfortable to encounter as the
barbed-wire fence which surrounded
the deacon's well-kept farm.
Possibly, the widow had a talent for
concealing any little acerbities of tem
per from the outside world, and be
stowing her ill-nature only on the
members of her own household.
"Yes," she mused, tapping the
home-made carpet with her foot, while
a shrewd look shone in her steel-gray
eyes-"yes, to my mind it's just as
good as settled,and I mean to do over
my wedding-dress. I ain't worn it
much,and it'll save buyiug a new one.
But there's one thing about it"-here
the widow put her foot down emphat
ically- "that old maid sister of the
deacon's has got to do most of the
work, if she lives with us. I don't
have any shiftless, do-nothing folks
abont me; but of course I won't say a
"La!" said Miss Letitia Pipes, pop
ping her head into the widow's sit
ting-room, bright and early the next
morning-"la, now, Feroby! is it set
tled yet? I'm dying to know!"
"Well-ahem!" said the widow,
looking conscious and tryiug to blush
- " 'tain't oxactly settled-that is,the
time ain't set, but it's all understood
between us, you know."
"Of course," assented Miss Pipes.
"Well, I reckoned it was understood,
that you are as good as engaged, of
course. How soon do you think it'll
"Well," said Hie widow, medita
tively," not before fall, I don't
reckon. You see, I've got a
right smart lot of sewing on
hand-and some quilting to do,
too. There's that piuy-bnd quilt I put
together last winter, and a rising-sun
Dorcas is making."
"Going to keep Dorcas with yon?"
"No, I ain't" snapped the widow,
tartly-Dorcas was her stepdaughter.
"She aiu't nolhiug to me, an' I shan't
keep her no louger than to git the
sewing done up, au' the apple-butter
making an' preserviug over; then I'm
a-going to tell her to find some
"Jes' so," assented Miss Pipes.
And before night it was all over
town that the Widow Cymonds was to
be married to Deacon Grey, in the fall
-just as Mrs. Cymonds meant it
And at last the gorgeous piney-bud
and the refulgent glories of the rising
sun were nearly finished and laid away
in the Mg, old-fashioned chest of
drawers in tue best chamber.
A ten-gallon keg was filled with
translucent, crimson-clear apple-but
ter, and the swinging-shelf iu the cel
lar was covered with jars of preserves
and omber-hued jelly-all made by
Dorcas Cymonds'. deft fingers.
And now the sparkling frosts of
October had turned the dogwood and
?sassafras leaves to red, and the chin
capins and over-cup acorns were drop
ping on the crisp, brown grass in the
woodlands and now pretty, brown
eyed,industrious Dorcas was told that
she must find auother home, and look
out for herself in the great future.
"For I expect to be married before
long, and *.h.m't want to be burdened
with any hangers-on,"said the widow,
Teais sprang into the sweot, brown
eyes, brit Dorcas turned away to hide
them from her stepmother's sharp

Revelations came iuto her heart to
comfort her-"I have never Been th?
righteous forsaken, nor his seed beg

that kind Providence had not forsaken,
Mrs. Cymonds put on her best dress,
tied her lavender bonnet-strings in ?
becoming bow under her chin, and
looked at herself in the mirror with a
smile of satisfaction.
"He'll be certain to come to the
sewing-society today, and who knows
what may happen, as we walk home
togetherl My, but won't Letitia Pipes
be mad! She almost turns green with
envy now, when the deacon walks with
But Deacon Grey did not make his
appearance at tho sewing-ch.de> and
the widow returned home in a some
what different mood from that in which
she had set ont.
"What in common sense he means
by not coming I don't see!" she said,
crabbedly. "And that Letitia Pipes
was glad of it-looked like she wanted
to titter right out, when I had to put
on my bonnet and start home aloue."
The afternoon had worn away, and
the sun was sinking fiery shafts
of crimson beneath the far-off western
"Who in creation'sa-coming now?"
grumbled the widow,as a lithe,slender
figure swuug open the front gate, and
tripped up the path to the cottage
It was Dorcas, her brown eyes shin
ing and her cheeks glowing like a full
blown Jacqueminot rose.
"Back again, like a bad penny 1"
cried the widow,crossly. "You'll have
to stay all night, I s'pose; but I've
told you once I couldn't keep you
and I can't!"
"I've only come for my things,"
said Dovcas, demuredly, her cheeks
dimpled with smiles and blushes.
"The deacon's ont in the buggy wait
ing for me."
"The deacon?" gasped the widow,
"Yes. I-I'm married to Deacon
Grey," exclaimed Dorcas, while her
stepmother glowed in wrath and dis
may. "I met him at the stile, this
morniug, and I think he married me
out of pity, for I was crying a little,
you know, to thiuk I had no home to"
go to. So he took me to the parson
age and we were married, and went
home to dinner. Aud here's the dea
con coming in now for my trunk."
"Well,well!" exclaimed Miss Letitia
Pipes, when she heard the news. "But
r. body might a-known it was Dorcas
the deacon was a-courting. But I'll
bet a button Feroby is as mad as a wet
hen about it!"
And so she was. -Saturday Night?
MADE LINCOLN TUMBLE HIS HA'R.
Medill'a Firmness Giivo tho Country a
Correct Idea of the Kailsplitter.
The death of Joseph Medill re
calls the story of a picture of Lin
coln; the one by which he became
known to the country. It was very
soon after the first nomination of
Lincoln for the presidency. The
story of the picture is given in Mr.
Medill's words as nearly as they can
be recalled :
"I know him so well that I called
him Abe and he called me Joe. He
came to see me in the Tribune office
soon after his nomination. I think
I sent for him. I said to him after
we talked of more important matters:
" 'Abe lhere are not many people
in the country who know how yon
look. You must get your picture
taken. Get ready and I will go with
"Snapshots were unknown then
and so were newspaper artists, a?
they are called. Lincoln went to his
hotel to fix up and I called for him at
the appointed time. I think he saw
that I was snvprised.
" 'How do I look?' he asked. His
coat was buttoned from top to bottom.
But it was his hair which caused me
to look at him. He had evidently wet
it and it was stuck to the skin and
across his temples as smoothly as if it
had been ironed. It was so unlike
? him that he looked unnatural.
" Tt will never do,' I said as
soon as I could recover my breath.
'Abe you never could be elected presi
dent if the country thought you wore
your hair that way.'
"He looked at me as if he were
dazed. He had the heart of a child.
He had plastered his hair down iu
that way honestly and innocently. It
hurt him to think he had done some
thing he should not have done. That
was his nature. He looked in the
mirror, and then that expression of
humor which I never saw in any other
face came out. He took both hands
and shoved them through his hair
until it looked like a brush heap after
a hurricane. Then he looked at me,
and I told him that wa3 more like him.
We walked into the photographer's,
several blocks, and my recollection is
that he scarcely spoke during the
time. When he sat before the camera
he ran his long fingers through his
hair again and looked at me like a
child that had been whipped. From
that picture all copies for campaign
purposes were made, and whatover
caricatures and cartoons were made
of him during the campaign were
suggested by that picture."

HOW ? MAN KEP? HOUSE

YEAR STUNT IN THE ARMY.
He Concealed That Fact From His.Wife.

The young man had never told his
wile that ho had done & five-year

Bou for it some me? feel a bit shy
mentioning their servicb iii the regu

about ten years ago, the army was
looked upon as the last resource of
the ne'er-do-well, may have some
thing to do with it. Anyhow this
yoting war department clerk didn't
happen tomiention it to the girl when
he came to Washington a couple of
years ago and courted and married
her, relates the Washiugton Star, that
he had spent almost a iive*year stretch
among the yellow, blasted-looking
mountains of Arizona, helping his
tro p to huut for the elusive Apache
Kid. He told her that he had beeu
jamming around down in the south
west, and he told tho truth} for if
hunting that red rascal of an Apach?
wasn't jamming around the southwest
then nothing is. She considered it
odd that he knew so much about sol
diering, that he went around the
house on Sunday mornings idly
whistling the trumpet calls, and that
he knew how to spiel Indian talk that
Indians understood; Or course, she
never stopped to wonder over his
habit of going down stairs sideways.
She never thought of him as a sol
dier, and so she could not know that
all men who have been cavalrymen
.invariably go down stairs sideways
for the remainder of their lives. It is
a habit born of their sorvice fear of
tripping themselves on stairs with
They keep house in a pretty little
place out in Mouut Pleasant. They
have had considerable difficulty in
keeping a servant, as a good many
Alount Pleasant folks do. Their last
Bervant wearied of the "lonesomeness"
one evening last week, packed up tho
things that belonged to her. and
probably a few things that did ot be
long to her, in accordance with the
rule iu such cases, aud departed, an
nouncing that she was not to return.
The young wife wept dismally after
the servant's departure, aud her hus
band, sympathizing with his wife's
red nose, endeavored to assuage her
"Let 'er go," said he. "I'll stay
home from the office tomorrow, and
you can bundle off bright and early
and get another one. Don't rush
yourself to death over it, either. I
eau run this shack for one day, I
"But if I am away after the noon
hour what will you do for your lunch,
you poor old monkey thing?" she
asked him, solicitously affectionate.
"Never you mind me," he said.
"I'll get along. You watch me."
So, on the followiug morning, di
rectly after breakfast, the young wife,
with many forebodings as to the rack
and ruin she would find, and not a
bit of her work done when she re
turned, set out for the down town dis
trict to beg, borrow or steal a house
"It'll be a give away, all right,"
murmured her husbaud to himself,
but I'll do itali the same."
So he set to work. First, he washed
the dishes. Soldiers of the regular
army of the United States wash dishes
with a practised skill and a. thorough
ness such as few women, with all due
consideration, exhibit. He made a
nice job of the dish washing and then
took a pair of shears and cut a lot of
scalloped borders out of old newspa
napcrs for the china closet. Then he
put the dishware away all neat and
orderly. Then he started in at the
kitchen. He polished the stove first,
so that the kitchen cat raised her back
at her own image in it. Then he got
at the pans, pots, skillets and so on,
and made them look like new. Then
he swept out the kitchen, after which
he got down on his marrowbones and
gave it the most business-like scrub
bing it had ever had-a military scrub
bing. Thus tue kitchen was all fixed.
Then he went upstairs to their
room and made the bed. A man who
has made up his bunk in quarters in
the United States army for any spaco
of time doesn't need to get any points
from ihe women folk as to how that
?ob should be done. Then he
sprinkled tea leaves around and swept
the whole upstairs portion of tho
house, after which he dusted it thor
oughly. Then he descended the stairs
aud began tho policing of the dining
room, sitting room and parlor. Ho
changad the furniture all about,
changed the location of some of tho
pictures advantageously, gave the
piano a better position and cleaned
and swabbed the whole outfit until
it looked as if half a dozen ordinary
servants had been policing it.
Lunch hour had rolled around by
this time, and so ho went to the kit
chen, neatly fried himself some bacon
aud eggs, and made himself a cup of
coffee on tho gas stove, after which
he cleaned np tho dishes he had used
and smoked a couple of pipes full of
tobacco and reflected. He had ex
pected his wife back by that time, but
she didn't come. He began to think
of how she'd no doubt be worrying
about the the dinner theu, and so he
decided to get the dinner himself. He ,
put ou his coat and went out to the I
market to buy the dinner. He picked j
out a fine, thick steak and the noces- ?
sary vegetables, and rather astonished I
the niarketman with his workmanlike !
manner of buying. Theretofore he ?
had simply been the bill payer at tho ?
He had a fine dinner agoing by half
after ?. He knew that his wife would
not be gone later than 4 o'clock, so at
a 3.40 he put the steak on to broil.
Then he set the table with a whole
lot of neatness, not forgetting the
bunch of Mowers that he had bought
at the market, for the purpose of
adorning the table.
His wife walked iu, weary, footsore
and ravenous, at two minutes past 4
o'clock. ?he paused at tho thresh
hold aud looked about her. The hall
had been policed with great thorough
ness and she could not uuderstaud.
Then she walked into the parlor. Her
face assumed a dazed expression.
"Why, Jack," she said, "have you
engaged a servant yourself?"
"Xope, " he replied. "Just been
passing the time myself a bit, that's
When she saw the set dining room,
the spotless and shining kitchen, with
its glistening utensils, tho broiling
steak, and when she went upstairs
and saw the miracle that had been
wrought there, too, she simply sat
down iu a rocking chair and stared at
her husband. She was able to speak i
after a while, and then she inquired: ?
"But where did von learn to clo it i
He grinned, and went to a little old
trank of his that was stowed away in
the spar? rooni: He dug irita this fop
ft while; then ho brought out a parch
inent paper. He took it over to his
wife and banded it to her. It was an
army discharge. The space after the
word "character" was filled in with
the word "excellent" There was an
indorsement at the bottom of tho.dis
charge signed by the colonel ' of th?

soldier, both in garrison andcanip."

Some Marvels of Liquified Air-Quicksil
ver Frozen as Hard ns Steel. . |
The experiments which haye' xe-,
suited in the liquefaction of air seem
likely to revolutionize our ideas" bi
heat and cold. Mr. Charles E. Trip,
1er of New. York is turning out
liquefied air by tho gallori, and a;'d?' '
sciiptiou of his achievements -in the
Ceritriry is a veritable fairy-tale of
science. Faucy a kettle of liquefied
air goiug oft'in steam when 'set upon ;
aJbl?ck of ice, because the latter.as
several hundred degrees Warmer thari
the air! It may not be long before
the expression "as cold as ice" will
cease to be beard, and "as botas ice"
It certainly is surprising to see the
liquid air poured upou ice fly offlriss
ing like water from hot iron;, bnt
?when one reflects that ice is 344 de
grees hotter thau the liquid, it does
not seem so strange; or to' seo one's
breath blown into tho opea can :of the
liquid, sent back instantly, its mois
ture congealed into a miniature snow
storm. A jet of st?am is frozen as
quickly, for steam in the open,air is
only 114 degrees hotter thau the
breath, while from the temperature of
steam to that of liquid air is' a "ter
rible drop of 524 degrees! In this
freezing effect probably is found the :
greatest obstacle to the use bf liquid
air as a motive power. The moisture
of the air is deposited rapidly as ice '
upon thc machine, especially upon the
orifico from which the jet of extreme
ly cold air emerges. This soon closes
the orifice completely aud stops the ;
Auotber surprise is given when the
experimenter puts his baud directly
into the liquid for a moment. , But
the sensation is only as o'f a soft crish- ?j
iou of air about the baud: Such- it
really is. The heat of the hand forms
a layer of vapor or air about tho hand,
and the liquid air does not come in
contact with the flesh.' Should the
liquid actually touch the flesh, a
severe injury like, a burn re

in healing. lu au few seconds an

ODD VIEWS OP POLICE DUTY.
People Who Want . Postage Stamps, lea
Water, Door Keys add Money.
"It's easy to criticise the police de
partment," said a sergeant in the back
room of a station-house, "but the gen
eral public has no idea of the many
different things we have to do and of
thc annoyances to which we are sub
jected. When I was on duty in some
of the south side precincts people used
to come to the station and ask for the
queerest things. Hardly a day went
hy that some one didn't come around
and ask for postage stamps, while in
the summer time they used to come In
droves for ? drink of ice water. When
he remonstrated with them? they'd
say: 'Vel, don't ve pay taxes for de
ice, and shouldn't ve drink It, what?'
As a matter of fact, the ice is paid for
by the policemen themselves, but you
couldn't make them understand it.
"One night about 10 o'clock, when
I was on the desk, a big, stout German
came in and wralked up to the rail.
" 'Sergeant, my vife is gone out mit
der key und I am locked oudt,' he said.
" 'Well,' I said, Vhat can I do about
" 'Vy, sendt a policeman und make
me get in der house, dot's vkat' I
didn't spend my time arguing with
him,, you can bet
"But that was not the worst case by
any means. A poor tailor living on the
top floor of a tenement down that way
committed suicide after a quarrel with
his wife. The man was dead when the
ambulance came. A few hours later
the widow sent her little girl around
to the house to say that she had no
money, and unless some one helped
her out the man would have to be
buried in the potter's field. The police
are often called on in similar cases, so
the boys chipped in all around
and raised ?19. I gave that to the
child and sent her away. Soon after
it was time for roll call and another
sergeant came on duty. He was busy
writing up the blotter when the same
" 'My mudder says can I get any
more,', she said.
" 'What?' said the sergeant, who had
been asleep and didn't know about the
" 'My mudder says can I come
around next month an' git some more
money,' was the reply. She didn't
get any more, and that incident was
somewhat of a damper on charity
In that ' particular station for quite a
Tbc Hundred Year Club.
The Hundred Year Club is the latest
development of the end-of-the-century
mania for societies. These would-be
centenarians have quite discarded the
1 idea of a threescore-and-ten limit to
human existence. They declare that
the life of man "should be normally
from 120 to 180 years,' and while they
admit that this Increase of days may
not be secured by the present genera
tion, they expect that the average life
will be considerably lengthened.
The circular issued by the club
enumerates several objects to be se
cured in addition to greater length of
days. Some of these purposes are rele
vant, as, for instance, the decrease In
the cost of life-insurance which will
come with increased longevity. Others
appear to be rather remote from the
main project, as when stress is laid
on the fact that "there clubs will de
velop the faculty of conversation
which makes one .appear to advantage
in society." After all, this may be an
Important feature of the work. If the
same people are to be meeting one an
other for something like a century, it
Is by no means unessential that they
should learn to make, themselves
. agreeable. It would not be easy to re
gard the Hundred Y'ear Club with sat
isfaction If through its efforts certain
persons should extend their hold on
life to the traditional niriety-nine-year
lease without improving in the mean
