THE DAY CF PEACE.
What ot the day, my brother?
What of the day a peace?
When the dripp'ag sword tarns the green
And the dull, dread noises cease
The clarion call of bugles.
The shriek of the angry shell
What of battle that shall Tierce the night
Of battle-is it well?
What of the dead, my brother?
What of the dead and dumb?
Who shall pay at the Judgment day
When the ir essenger shall come,
Come In the light and glory,
Come in the Ure and flame,
Whose the strain of the blood and nain -
My brother-whose the blame?
What of the grief, my brother,
What of the grief and woe? ?
What of the toare shed o'er those biers
Ibera stricken hearts brought low?
Low in the day of terror.
Low in the night of gloom,
Whose the weight of this curse of Hate?
Whose the pain of Doom?
What of the blood, my brother?
What of the blood that flows
In a crimson stream where the lances gleam
And the bugle blows and olows?
Whoue the souls that shudder,
Shudder and start and c ry.
When the battles' cost by God engrossed
In blood on the brazen sky?
Hasten the day, my brother,
Hasten the day of peaoe,
When men not slain for ?reod of gain
And the dull, dread noises cease!
When sholl shall nh rick no longer,
When Hatred slink away,
The breath of God the blood-stained sod
Hake cleon-and Peace shall stay!
Indiana Ferguson impatiently
awaited the evening. For a week she
had been visiting her cousin, Silas
Beck, and his wife, and this evening
Bobert Scruggs was to come. Had
she known that Mr. Scruggs was ex
pected she would not have dared to
visit her cousin just at this time. She
was here, however, and now that he
was coming she did not deceive her
self by saying that she was sorry.
Miss Ferguson felt thnt she had
been unkind to Mr. Scruggs. He had
offered her his heart, and he was a
sincere man. She had answered
coldly: "Mr. Scruggs, it is impos
sible." How heartless it seemed to
her now. Brrt there hr.d been Prof.
Edward Cantwell Beed, and it seemed
Miss Ferguson was a mathonfa
tician. Not that she ever did much
in a practical way, but she loved the
science for its own sake. She and
Professor Beed had sat by the hour
discussing problems in which they
were interested. But for these meet
ings her answer to Bobert Sornggs
would have been different.
She now sat in meditation before
the bright fire. How stupid she had
been, she thought, to. suppose that
she could enjoy sitting forever drill
ing away at her mathematics! Do
people ever marry for that? What had
Professor Beed done? Married that
veritable chatterbox and mischief lov
ing Tomboy, Sadie Moore. As for
herself, did she ever really love Pro
fessor Beed? Well, perhaps. Any
how, she was very stupid-she was
sure she was stupid.
And now-certainly fate had thrown
her in the way of the man whom she
' rejected. He believed in woman's in
rr tuition, and that intuition told her
T that this was fortuitous. She was al
When at last she heard Mr. Scruggs
stamping the wet snow off his boots
outside the door she felt that she
turned a little pale. She was certain
ly nervous-an unusual thing for her.
When he addressed her as "Miss
Ferguson" it sounded odd and cold.
He used to call her "India."
"So you're acquainted!" exclaimed
Hrs. Beck, as they sat about the fire,
her face radiant with amiability.
"Now, I'm afraid we'll have to watch
you two. But then, if you'd a-been
marrying people-too snch people as
yon-you'd a-been married, both of
you, long ago."
.*You may trust Miss Ferguson,"
answered Mr. Scruggs. "I'm an
audacious scoundrel, you know, but
you will find Miss Ferguson as rigid
as-as the North pole."
Miss Ferguson could not have felt
rn ore uncomfortable than she did now.
To conceal her confusion she turned
to arrange some grasses in a vase,
which, as soon as she touched it,
tumbled to the floor, breaking into a
dozen pieces. Stoopiug quickly to
pick these np, now blushing very red,
she awkwardly upset a large easel and
its painting. Then she rose np very
quickly and left the room, mortified
to the verge of despair. : She wondered
if she would ever dare to see Mr.
The following morning she had her
breakfast sent to her, complaining of
a headache, and did not venture down
stairs until she heard Hr. Scruggs'
footsteps going out of the little gate
' and down toward a cabin where one
of his queer fancies took him at every
opportunity to converse with an
ignorant but self-important and
garrulous woodman settler. Then she
crept softly down and entered the
parlor-and there sat Mr. Scruggs
looking into the fire.
With au effort Miss Ferguson con
"Good morning, Mr. Scruggs," she
said. "I thought I heard you going
out this morning."
"Not I, this day," he replied, "I
am disposed to mope. I have sent
Silas down to bring my woodman
friend to see if he cannot eheer me
up. Are you ill, Miss Ferguson? I
imagine that you used to look
"I am well now," she answered. "I
have changed since you saw me Inst."
"? believe you are more beautiful,"
"Don't flatter me," she protested.
'% flatter!" he exclaimed. "When
will you learn, Miss Ferguson, that I
am incapable of the art? Yon have
not changed so mnch, then, ofter all. "
"Ton are cruel if you contradict
me," she replied.
"And were you never cruel?" he
"Perhaps," she answered. "But I
"Bepeniance means sorrow," he
said. "Will yon be sorry for me now?
I have the blnef."
At this moment Silas Beck camel in, j !
followed by the woodman, and when
Mr. Scrnggs tamed to introduce his
fwond to Mus Ferguson she was gone*

as soon as breakfast was over. What
this meant to Miss Ferguson she
would not acknowledge even to her
self. It vasa lonely day-the loneliest
that she ever passed. Mrs. Beck, to
be sure, never ceased to chatter, but
what woman's talk can fill the empti
ness of a woman's lonely hearth
When Miss Ferguson put on her arc
hes to walk down to the village post
?n.ii ce Mrs. Beck spoke of Bobert
Scruggs, and she sat down to listen.
Directly Mrs. Beck's gossip diverted
itself to a neighbor who claimed to
have a cousiu who married a niece of
General Grant, and Miss Ferguson
rose to go.
"There goes Bobert now," cried.
Mrs. Beck, "with Ida Gates. If that
girl don't talk him to death it won't
be her fault. She's a tur'ble gab."
Miss Ferguson looked out. The
road ran near the house, and she saw
that Mr. Scruggs looked perfectly
happy. He was leaning back in the
sleigh, and Miss Gates was driving,
chewing gum and talking all at once. ?
Miss Ferguson did not speak. She
weat to the fire, removed her arctics,
selected a book from the table and
read. She read determindely. She
told herself that she was going to
read, and what Miss Ferguson willed
to do she usually did.
When she had been reading about
half au hour Mr. Scruggs came
"I nm sorry," he said to Mrs.Beck,
"but I have to return to the city. I
have just now received a dispatch.
Good-by, Mrs. Beck-and Miss Fer
guson, I don't kuow when I shall soe
see you again. . Gtod-by."
"Good-by, Mr. Scroggs," she said
naturally, extending her hand.
He took it, pressed it mechanically, .
and in another moment he was gone.
Miss Ferguson sat down by the fire.
She admitted to herself that she was
disappointed. Mr. Scruggs no longer
cared for her. He was happy with
Miss Gates, who chewed gum. But
then why should she care? She waa
determined not to care. She made it
a practice to take things philosophic
ally, and there was little that ever dis
turbed her. She liked Mr. Scruggs,
but he was nothing to her. She had
been foolish-stupid-and she would
try to forget it. Picking up her book
she resumed reading where she liad
left off and spent the rest of the da;
with the novel.
Notwithstanding, that, night her
pillow was wet with tears! They were
foolish, she said, but they would not
last, and she could put it from her
easier after a little feminine ory. After
that she was determined to have no
regrets, and what Miss Ferguson
willed to do she nearly always did.
The next day she seemed as fresh' as
she had been for a year. f-Tl
Two days later she received a letter
from the postoffice.- It read:
"Dear Miss Ferguson:-I once
asked you to marry me. What I said
then I now repeat with twofold vehe
mence. Does the change in you ex
tend to your heart or is your .answer
The answer she wrote read simply:
"Dear Bobert:-I have changed.
The answer is yes.
AN EXTRAORDINARY CRIME.
rho Victim Put Where Her Story of It
Wa? Taken for Insane Talk. '
In the month of December last an
elegantly dressed man presonted him
self to the governor of the district in
which the City of Mexico is situated,
ind solicited the admittance of bin
rant, a lady whose name he said was
Mrs Aurelia Granados de Jaimes, into
the insane asylum for women in Canoa
street. He said that she had lost her
nind and that, as there waa np one at
home to look after her, he was afraid
mat some accident might happen to

DI the asylum paid no attention to this
statement, as it waB thought to be a
part of her ravings.
The lady gradually got worse and
ra a recent Sunday she died.
Dr. Alberto Lopez Hermosa, director
>f the asylum, and Dr. Francisco de
P. Echeverr?a, assistaut director, be
ieving that the lady's case had been a
peculiar one, examined her cranium

temple the head of a steel wire, nail,
which proved to be aboui eight centi
metres m length. The flesh had
almost cicatrized over the nail's head

The doctors immediately informed

A fashionable * French physician
?ailed lately on one of his patients,
Baroness de M., who was complain

natter with you, madam," he said
promptly; it is that American stove

rarniug stoves are reservoirs of poi

"But that stove cost me $251" pro
tested the baroness. "Never mind
that; better lose any amount of money
than your life. I will tell you what
I'll do; I'll give you a guinea for it,
rad find some way of getting rid of
the pernicious object " The lady con
sented, and the doctor removed the
stove. A few days later the patient,
who thought of changing her resi
lience, went out to inspect a suite of
rooms,Jand the first thing that met

EARLY INDIAN ATHLETES.
Their Favorite Grimes Were Bowling

The American Indians were great

than any in rise today Vere built in
the open fields. Balls hewn ont of
stone were rolled by genuine Indian
muscle. In fact there is scarcely a
popular kind of game played in this
country today but that its oounterpart
can be found in the age of the red
man. They were gamblers, too, oven
to forfeiting- the clothes upon their
backs, their wives dr their liberty.
Strange to say the average school his

the Indian in nearly every point ex

was ono of the centres for the Indian
"bowlers." In'several parts of Asht?:"
bula county some of the other resi

which they have pickedup themselves
in their early farming, usually in tho
The balls used, ins'tead of hoing
large wooden'ones like those in use
today, were made of light colored
stone and range in size from an ordi
nary league ball down to tho,common
small top rubber ball The alleys
were built of wood carved out to make
o reasonably smooth surface. The
game was more- to seo how far one
could roll rather than acenraoy iu
striking the ten pins at the opposite
end of the alley. . " Tho alleys were
built so long*that itris al 1 egod it was
a hard matter to roll one of these stone
balls so that it would reach the end.
The Indians, too, kept a score and,
like in all other games, they gambled.
The Indiaus were inveterate ball
players and excellent "rooters." Their
game lusted usually from 9 o'clock in
the morning till sundown. It was
. participated in by from COO to 1000
young men, divided into two sides,
and the gardes were witnessed by from
3000 to 5000 m eu, women and children,
who formed an immense ring around
the entire held. The enthusiastic In
dian yells were not altogether unlike
the notes of the modern ball park.
There was scarcely an intermission of
five minutes during the entire day.
B The game, however, resembled our
football rather than baseball. . When
the ball was in the air there were kicks
and struggles, maimed limbs and
bruised bodies. A prescribed line
divided the "rooters" of the two
sides, and across this line the gambl
ing took place. Old men were selected
as umpires. Women on bath sides
brought the crude household goods
of the family to be staked on the game..
-Stakeholders gttardod the goods. The
scene resembled two distinct camps,
although there was- not necessarily
more than one tribe engaged in the
There was a feature of the Indian
game which will be new to the ball
players of the year 1900. Several
medicine men among the Choctaws sat
all night on the spot whore tho ball
was to be started next day and smoked
to the Great Spirit who was to witness
the game. Tho night before there
also occurred what was known as the
"ball play dance."
Prior to the game each Indian was
provided with two instruments which
resembled our tonnie rackets of today.
The judges threw the ball iu the air
and immediately hundreds of Indians
started after it. One finally succeeded
in catching it between the large ends
of the two "tennis rackets" and threw
it "home," or between two poles, the
limit of one side or the other. This
would count one point toward the
game and the aide getting 100 points
t?rst won. Often in the terrible
struggle for the ball difficulties would
arise between two slightly injured
contestants and the game would stop
until they settled the dispute. The
women aleo played ball. When the
men were tired they would announce
a game between the women,and prizes
would be awarded to their winning

Dr. Max Oppenheim, a distinguished
European scientist and scholar, re
Ben tl j completed one of the most re
markable journeys ever undertaken
in the East. He explored little known
and out of the way parts of the Holy
Land. He penetrated to Damasous,
which is rarely visited, and "made

The Jesuits and those coming from
the American mission at Beyrout, says
Dr. Oppenheim, seemed to exert the
best and deepest influence upon the
people. They are not prosperous,
and as a result some ten thousand of
the men emigrate every year.

He "has but one hope, but one am

doing this he will, if he oan, also give

of the world may some day class as

changed the political trend of the
world. Although that may not be
true, he was thc man whose name
was attracting more attention through
out the world at the time than that of
any other individual. He was sitting
in a big chair ut the corner of the
tablo. I could only see his baok and
profile; his massive shoulders were
stooped, and his head was bent for
ward on his breast. He was wearing
a pair of blue goggles with close
fitting screens to protect his eyes
from dust. His iron-gray hair was
combed directly back from his fore
head over his head to his collar. Onoe
