BY IDA ESTEL
Philemon Harventhal had lived
three-score and ten years in the quiet
village of Aylesborough. He was a
man of unblemished character, was
knowr* to be very wealthy, and lived
in an unpretentious manner. He was
apsychist, and his rather peculiar
religious views were the cause of many
heated arguments among those of his
friends whom he considered it. his
duty to instruct in the mysteries of
his chosen faith. He folly believed
that when the time should come for
him to "put on immortality" he would
be received on thc next plane by a
host of bright spirits. As he was
charitable, owed no man aught that
he could not pay, had kept the com
mandments and had been as nearly as
possible what the world calls au up
right man, he believed that a recep
tion of unusual grandeur awaited him.
Notwithstanding this assurance, he
seemed to prefer deferring his journey
io the "ever-green shore" as long as
possible, for a real or imaginary pain
in the region of his heart one day
caused the good mon to make a rather
hurried visit to a physician of his ac
Dr. Elwell was one among the list
of possible converts to his spiritual
istic doctrine, and as. Philemon en
tered his office he immediately cast
about for an excuse whereby he might,
. if possible, avoid the expected lecture.
But there was a troubled look on his
old friend's face that quite disarmed
him, and a few moments later Dr. El
well's head was pressed against his
side in a listening attitude. As he
listened, instead of hearing the heait
pubations, as he expected, be heard
He raised his head and looked
about, but could no longer hear it.
Once more he pressed his ear against
Philemon's heart, and once more he
Beard the same sweet strain. The
music sounde d like the soft tonos of
his own piano, as he had heard his
daughter playing before leaving the
house, which stood about 20 yards
The doctor walked to the door and
listened, but heard no sound. He
looked toward the house, but there
was nothing unusnal in that direction.
By the time the thoroughly puzzled !
ilj^!iP?*n kad listened, first, at the j
;"fr?rfit,t?on ot the back door of tho j
office, alternately pressing his eor
against Philemon's side, ho had aroused
the old man's curiosity.
"Anything peculiar about it, doc
"A little unusual, surely."
'1 imagine I hear music. "
**Well, doctor, I believe there is to
be a show in town. I suppose they
are having a street parade. "
The physician hesitated. If ho ex
plained he feared a lecture on the su
per natural. If he did not explain he
felt that he was deceiving an innocent
Philemon continued, "I hope that
it will not prove serious, though I
Buffer considerably at times, and
thought best not to neglect it. "
..You seem undecided."
.*I-I never had a case of this kind
before! I think there must be some
mistake, but I certainly hear music
every time I press my ear to your
heart," he replied, half fearing au ex
planation of the niysituy from his pa
tient's standpoint, and preparing to
defend his own belief against all spir
Philemon was silent. He looked
searchingly fnto the doctor's eyes, half
expecting to see a twinkle of merri
ment, but there was nothing of the
kind. Indeed, his honest face wore a
troubled expression quite convincing
to tiie patient.
Philemon pointed across the street
.'I see Dr. Grey over there. Please
A moment later Dr. Elwell was ex
plaining to his brother physician tho
usual occurrence, and together they
sought an explanation; but to no pur
pose. Dr. Grey beard music when his
ear rested against Philemon's side, as
his friend had heard it.
A serious expression rested on the
usually happy countenace of their pa
tient as he prepared to depart. He
aros?, pulled his hat over his eyes,
and walked out as feebly as though
he had grown ten years older. Both
physicians were as puzzled over the
Apparent'effect of their communication
SB they were as to the origin of the
sweet strains. Philemon walked down
the village street like a man in a
dream. A neighbor spoke socially as
he passed, but the old man die ?o?

ically drew a chair before tho open
fire, seated himself ?nd rested his
bead in his hands. His dog stretchod
himself at his feet, occasionally open
ing one eye to look np at his master,
who had failed to speak a word of wel
come, and the omission had not passed
unnoticed by the faithful brute.
A half hour passed. Philemon
moved uneasily, and the mastiffs tail
thnmped against the floor reassuring
The dog bounded to his feet with a
"Amzie, my boy, I have much to
attend to; very much, for I have this
day received a warning."
He placed his hand on the animal's
head,and in a sorrowful and affection
ate manner caressed the only creature
left to him whom ho believed lovod
"Yes, Amzie, I have received a
warning of the approaching chancre.
I suppose I ought to be thankful that
the time draws near, but it is uncer

placed it across his master's knee as
he tried to lick the hand that caressed
him. Philemon gently stroked it and
continued: "I have been . told that
there are animals on the next plane,
Amzie; 1 cannot say whether it be
true, but you con come to me if they
misuse you. They dare not, sir! They
dare not!" he shouted, excitedly.
He pulled the chair toward a rathe r
antiquated desk, and wrote sever al
words on a slip of paper.
"Take this to Richard, my boy. .H

if one suffers with heart disease,"
The dog took the note in his mouth,
aud as Philemon opened the door
bouuded outward. * A few moments
later he returned, with the gardener
"You sent for me? Amzie brought
"Yes, Rich-ir d; I want you to bring
a lawyer here at once. He must be
the first one you can find. I am in a
great hurry!" And the man hurried
When the lawyer arrived he found
Philemon seated before the desk, busi
ly engaged in arranging his business
papers. Ono drawer after another had
been emptied,and the contents heaped
in considerable confusion before him.
He welcomed the lawyer, and pro
ceeded to explain why he called him.
"I have concluded, sir, that a man
who has lived as long in this world as
I have ought to properly arrange
matters before leaving for the next;
therofore, I have sent for you to do
the work for me."
The lawyer acquiesced, politely re
marking that he hoped it might be
many years first, and Philemon con
tinued^"! have a large estate to dis
poso of. I also have a few distant rela
tivos; not one among them would, from
genuine sorrow, shod a tear at my

the dog.* "I want him properly cared
for during his life, if he survive me
and I have good reason to believe that
he will; and as either one of the ras

wish him to understand that this
room, with ali it contains, is to be re

remaining portion of tho house is to

is to be well cared for. In compensa

his disposal $1000 the first year, and
it sholl be increased $200 each year
that my pet shall live. A sure incen

of satisfaction, as the lawyer rapidly
transferred the old man's wishes to

and what tba dog was to be fed, and he
wished Richard ko understand that
though he often stretched himself be-'
fore the fire, at times ho enjoyed lying
on the broad sofa, which must be left
for his use alone.
The lawyer smiled indulgently, and
continued to write until the rather
peculiar doenment was finished.
Soon afterward the will was proper
ly signed and witnessed, the lawyer
had gone, and Philemon was once
moro seated before the fire.
The evening shadows were length
ening. Philemon seemed to have for
gotten that he usually ate a hearty
meal at this hour. 'Amzie, as usual,
lay at his master's feet, occasionally
looking upward and emphasizing the
fact of his presenco by the same loud
rap of his tail.
The old man remained in this posi
tion for some time. He was thinking
of the years that had passed since his
wife had been taken from him, and
now be believed the time short until
be should meet her. Save for those
who ministered to his comfort, and
were paid for their services, he had
lived alone, with only the companion
ship of a dog. Amzio was the third
mastiff that had enjoyed the privilege
of lying at his feet
"The time is short," he thought
aloud, and Amzie immediately bounded
to his side.
"iou aro in the habit of going with
me for a walk at this hour, sir. Come
along. I have a strange errand to do
Without further conversation with
his dumb companion Philemon walked
plo viv up the street until he reached
the village furniture and undertaking
establishment Here he paused as
though somewhat undecided whether
to enter. A dim light bnrned in the
rear of the store, though the front re
mained in darkness. Finally Phile
mon entered the dimly lighted build
ing in a hesitating manner. The pro
prietor came out of the back room, and
upou recognizing his visitor cordially
When he had selected a coffin and
given directions as to bow he wished
it trimmed, he left the astonished un
dertaker and walked toward the home
of a fellow-psyphist.
After seriously considering the mat
ter, Philemon had decided to visit
this man and explain the state of his
feelings regarding the spiritual phe
nomena, as he was pleased to consider
the occurrence in the doctor's office
that morning. His friend listened at
tentively until he had finished; then
"If you neither saw nor heard any
thing unusual yourself, my opinion is
that those physicians were playing a
joke on you," was the unsatisfactory
reply. And the matter seemed to havo
a little less serious an aspect to Phile
mon, though he had gone too far, and
arranged bis earthly affairs prepara
tory to entering the next world With
too much gonttine aoxioiy. to oast it

"Should this matter prove to be as
I think, you will sponk a few words
over my remains, will you not?" he
inquired, half hoping that his time on
earth would end abruptly, if only to
convince the man that he was right
"I will," was the grave reply, and
His words had not produced the ef
fect upon his friend that he had hoped,
though he still felt convinced of the
genuineness of the warning; and with
the faithful Amzie walked homeward,
repeating a few comforting verses of
Scripture, believing it the proper
thing for a mau to do who expected
ere long to take that journey from
wheoco no man returns.
He reached the corner of the street
near his home without speaking to the
dog. It had been his custom to con
verse with him in a confidential man
ner, quite ignoring the fact that he
received no reply; but tonight the
dog seemed to understand his master's
mood and trotted on ahead. Sudden
ly a man emerged from Philemon's
gate, and Amzie gave a bark of recog
nition. It was Dr. Elwell.
"Good evening, Mr. Harrenthal. I
have been searching for you for an
hour. I thought you seemed some
what disturbed over our heaving
music this morning, and I wanted to
tell you that after you left we discov
ered that your back had rested against
the thin pipe of the speaking tube
which communicates with my house,
and my daughter was playing the
piano. If you were not so hard of
hearing you probably would have
heard it yourself. "
Philemon mumbled something, ho
scarcely knew what, and the doctor
hurried on. But a load seemed to
have been suddenly lifted from him.
He now realized that bo had eaten
nothing since morning,and uuderstood
that the faint feeling he had experi
enced was can s od by hunger; though
before he sought food he exclaimed,
"Never mind, Amzie; you are pro
vided for! I needed a shock."

There must have been shrewd lead

by the peculiarly Chinese method of
indirection. Their persons, with one
exception, were not touched. It was
their followers that felt tho blow.
Missionaries were loft in safety, but
native Christians were butchered. The
movement grew, and the crowd became
more open in its manifestations. The
men drilled in the very square of Pe

Thc baboons and chimpanzees are
ferocious and hard to handle, but
bring good prices and there ls always
a demand for them. The opening of
new zoological gardens throughout the
United States has increased the trade
in monkc3's; but the American cir
cus has always offset the greater num

this country a good monkey market.
The clown and the monkeys are the
two indispensable circus adjuncts. The
rest of the outfit may be thin spread
and unsatisfactory, but if the monkey
and the clowns are In good working
order, the children, at least, will get
their money's worth. So the manager
of even the smallest traveling circus
keeps his monkey cages full, and, as
