j SUSAN'S LUCKY SHOT. [
It was a very pretty prospect that
confronted Miss Susan Galton Brown.
The scattering white home* among thc
trees in the valley, the blue hills be
yond with their fringes of pine trees,
the clear sky that was such a novelty
j to the girl from the great manufactur
ing town-ii. was all blight and fresh
and so delightfully clean. Miss Susan
Galton Brown looked back on the
peaceful prospect for a lingering mo
ment or two and then pressed ahead
up thc mountain road.
She certainly was an unusual figure
for that quiet neighborhood. Attired
in a close-fitting suit of gray with a
short walking skirt and a wide
brimmed gray felt hat that concealed
her beautiful hair, she might, at a dis
tance, save for the skirt, have been
taken for an extremely handsome boy.
Her gait would have carried out the
impression, there was such an uncon
strained swing to it. But her high
boots were not a boy's boots and her
hands were neatly gloved. Miss Su
san Galton Brown carried something
under her arm. Ic was a light maga
zine rifle, thc gift of an adoring father.
For she could shoot and fish and swim
and run, and do it all in a way that
met that adoring father's critical ap
proval. She had minor talents, of
course-an education rounded off in a
finishing school, a pleasing smatter
I ing of music, taste for art that was
only second to her taste for nature.
But all these were quite dwarfed in
her daddy's opinion by those manlier
attributes that he so assiduously cul
I tivated. She was nis coa-.pani?n on
i long hunting and fishing trips and an
I ideal companion at that.
It is needless to say that quiet Elm
I wood looked upon this accomplished
! young woman wi'. a very doubtful tx
; pression. She was a little too ad
I vanced-that was the term they used
-for Elmwood's old-fashioned ideas of
i maidenly modesty. The mothers of
; Elmwood held her up as an example
! of the baneful coming woman, and the
j girls of Elmwood thought her dread
i fully bold-and secretly envied her.
' As for the men-well, there were but
i few of them in Elmwood whose opin
? lon was worth recording, and of these
; a mere handful dared to express an
j honest opinion in the face of the uni
! versal feminine condemnation. Of
i these independent souls it must be ad
I mitted that Mr. John Cortwright stood
\ first and foremost.
If Miss Susan Galton Brown knew
! of the unfavorable light in which her
! short skirt and her Teddy hat had
i placed her-and there is no doubt she
I did-the matter failed LO wj.-ry her in
I the least. She had corni down to Elm
wood to stay a mouth wi'b her maiden
cunt-her dead mother's only Bister
who lived in the big winto mansion
cn Main -street, just beyond the Bap
j tist meeting house. It was this fund
i aunt who had invited Jack Cortwight
i to call, and although this was a par
? ticulttr youth, with high ide?is P? worn
: anhood. he called again, and :ain. and
again. What was strr.njrv about lt,
too, was that Jack ha;led from the
east, and from Puritan surroundings
I at that. Yet with all thi3 discreet
bringing up he certainly was fascinat
. ed v.llh the wild we^terr. hoyden.
They all said that Jack Cortwright
! was a rising young man. Boston capi
j talists had sent him-fresh from col
lege-to the western town to look af
' ter their interests in certain undevel
! oped coal mining property that lay a
few mfles north of Elmwood. And
Jack had taken off his coat, metaphori
cally, and gone to work to develop it
1 There was plenty of capital behind
: him, and he had built a railway branch
i to th^ mine, and started a bark In
? Elmwood, of which he was temporary
j cashier, and stirred the little town
: Into making certain improvements that
had long been discussed. In short,
i Jack Cortwright was recognized oven
i by those who didn't approve of hi?
j revolutionary tactics to be the live'iesl
factor of progress the sleepy little
hamlet had ever known.
! Miss Susan Galton Brown .il poor
: luck that bright October afternoon.
She didn't rouse a solitary rabbit. But.
i after all, it was the tramp she was
; after rather than thc gciine. Still sho
must have a shot at Wiielhins. Sn
I she pinned a brilliant leaf to u tree
j trunk and at 20 paces -;; pl it it at thc
I first trial.
The sun was still high above the
hills when she .'darted to return to
j her aunt's. As s.ie went down the old
State road a sudden clattering caused
, her to turn her head. Three men
! mounted on powerful horses came
! trotting down the slope. Susan stepped
! O?ide to let them pass ami one of the
horses, catching sight of her, sudden
I ly sprang aside and almost unseated
j his rider. Susan looked up anxiously
j and saw to her astonishment that the
man's heavy beard was twisted very
much to one side. But he quickly re
gained his seat with an oath, and,
1 striking the horse, clattered after his
companions. Susan wondered why the
I man was disguised, and dimly fan~: d
j that the three rough-looking strangers
1 were up to some mischief. But she
! was thinking of Jack the next moment,
j and the strange incident was shelved.
A few moments of brisk walking
I brought her to the brow of thc hill
j where the road turned sharply and ran
at an oblique along the side of the
: steep descent. Susan seated herself
I on a log and looked down into the vii
j l?ge, which lay. as it were, at her
I very feet. She traced the one long
. street of the hamlet, which was but a
i continuation of the highway, an' fol
i lowed its dusty line past her aunt's
! trim home, and tho little park with
Its soldiers' monument, and the town
. hall, and then along to the bank
i Jack's bank-and there her gaze rest
Miss Susan's eyes were good ones
; and the air was very clear. She saw
a horseman sitting in his saddle at
! the bank door. Hr was holding the
bridles of two riderless horses. Even
j as she noted this the two riders rushed
; from the building and leaped into their
saddles. There were puffs of white
smoke and sharp detonations. Susan
could see people running in wild con
fusion. Then the three riders started
ftt a Sharp canter up the road. Every
rto??n ya.rd? er BO ma would turn in
his saddle and fire down the roadwa;:.
Susan knew what this strange scene
meant. It was a daylight bank rob
bery, one of a series that had terror
ized all the countryside during the
past summer. Tho three robbers were
retreating with iheir plunder. What
had happened in the bank? Why was
Jack not pursuing their.? She sudden
ly turned sick arid cold.
Then an indescribable impulse
seized her. She let herself over the
edge of the bank and began a mad
scramble down the steep declivity.
She meant to intercept the ruffians.
She slid, she stumbled, once she fell,
but she never let go her hold on her
precious rifle. And then, as the carta
; suddenly seemed falling away from
her, she reached the level ground in
a confused heap. But she was up on
her feet in a moment. The highway
was directly before her. The robbers
were cantering by. The man in the
rear was the man with the beard, and
he had a coarse bag flung across the
saddle before him. He was directly
opposite Susan as she plunged down
to the edge of the roadway. He must
have taken her for an enemy, for his
glittering revolver flew up and he fired
in her direction quite at random. Su
san felt a sudden twitch at her broad
brimmed hat and quickly dropped be
hind some bushes that lined the road
way. The barrel of her rifle rose. The
robber was rapidly increasing the dis
tance between thom. Could she shoot
this man in cold blood? She had him
covered. A moment more and lt might
be too late. Slie thought of Jack and
The horse of the fleeing man sud
dr,ily leaped to one side and flung his
rider heavily to the earth. As h? went
down he dragged the bag of plunder
with him. The riderless horse gal
loped after his companions.
Then Susan Galton Brown sprang
into the roadway and fired five shots
in rapid succession after the two
horsemen. She did not aim to hit
them, but rather to frighten them
away. They hesitated a moment and
then dashed madly ahead; the rider
less horse galloping in the rear.
Susan ran forward to the prostrate
man. He was unconscious. She
stooped over him for a moment and
then drew awa; the coarse bag. As.
she suspected, it was half filled with
currency. She shuddered as she
looked at the livid face of the ruffian
and then at the blood that was slowly
saturating his coat sleeve. She be
gan to feel a little faint.
She was aroused by the sound of
wheels and the shouting of a man. A
light phaeton was coming toward her.
In a moment she recognized the driver
as the local livery stable proprietor.
He leaped out beside her.
"Nailed him, didn't you?" he shout
ed in a paroxysm of excitement. "I
was just ready to drive out o' my
stable when they pelted by. As I got
into the roadway I saw you blazin'
away. Kill him?"
"No." said Susan, "he is stunned by
the fall from his horse. I only aimed
to break his shoulder."
"You done it all right," cried the
liveryman. "By George!' he shrieked,
"it's Jim Bascom himself!"
Susan felt her head going around.
"Mr. Tompkins," she said, "will you
kindly drive me to the bank as quick
ly as you can?"
"Yes. ma'am, I will," he replied,
willi great heartiness. "You've got the
stuff there, have you? Jump in."
And a moment later they were
speeding toward the bank. They had
not gone 20 yards when they met the
first group of hastily armed men w>v_
were on the trail of the robbers.
"You'll find Jim Bascom lyiu' up
there." shouted the liveryman. "She
shot him an' we've got the bank stuff
all here!" And he touched up his
horse again. And the ne>t group
heard the same story, and the next,
and the next. And they all turned and
stared after blushing Susan Brown.
And then they were at the bank.
There was a little crowd about the
door. But they quickly made way for
Susan, and the liveryman, and the pre
And there was Jack sitting up in a
big chair, and somebody was bathing
his head, and he was blinking queer
ly like a man slowly waking up. But
he suddenly seemed to regain his fae- I
ulties when Susan Brown, forgetful of j
all the curious eyes about her, sudden
ly dropped on her knees beside him
and put up her loving arms and cried,
"Why, Susan, dear!" murmured
Jack. "There, there, don't worry. I'm
just a little dazed. One of them hit
me over the- head with something from
behind and stunned me. I'm almost
all right again."
"Oh, Jack," moaned Susan Brown,
"I-T thought they might have killed
you, ancV-and I shot the man, and
and-and got the money back-oh, oh,
ch!" And here poor Susan quite broke i
down, and putting her face against
Jack's ccat, sobbed convulsively.. And
Mr. Tompkins told what he knew, and j
then the astonished and il3llghted Jack I
turned the recovered trersure over to
his assistant, who had been temporar
ily absent at the time o? the attack,
and, borrowing the happy Mr. Tomp
kins phaeton, drove^Susan to her
"Oh, Jack," she murmured on the
way, "it was so unwomanly and so j
"I'm afraid it was, my dear," said
Jack in a painfully solemn voice;
"but as it saved the bank in which I
am intimately interested $37,000 in

desperate gang of thieves the state
has ever known, I fear I must con

not to do it again, won't you dear?"
Susan promised.-Cleveland Plain

WAYS OF MEN IN LOVE
A SCIENTIST HAG CATALOGUED THE
ACTS OF CUPID'S VICTIMS.
A Serious-Minded Gorninn Professor lins
Evolved a Guide Hook of Love Games
-Caressing, Fighting, Self-Exhibition
and Coquetry - Make Love as Sport.
The long ago pootical phrase, "The
sportiveness of love," asumes a fresh
significance since Professor Karl
Gross evolved a guide book of love
games and catalogued them into classes
and sections with erudite observations
upon the heads in general and enter
taining tales by way of specific in
Love games, says Professor Gross,
aro chiefly four: Caressing games,
games of self-exhibition, fighting
gtmes, and games of coquetry. Sweet
hearts play caressing games because
they like to be near each other; they
play games of self-exhibition because
they wish each other to behold their
merits; they play fighting games be
cause tiny find it necessary sometimes
to fight t") win each other, or because
fighting is 0:10 method of displaying
their adorable qualities; they play co
quetry games because they are made
coquettish and for no other reason in
Despite thc fact that they have been
pursuing their games finee time pre
historic, and although they are sup
posed by those outside the enchanted
pale to be laughable alike in their coo
ing they have not decided upon a uni
versal pattern for their games. Not
even the kiss is excepted when Pro
fessor Gross propounds this interest
ing revelation, honored with supreme
glory by dreamy bards as well as by
intoxicated suitors. All children play
catch and hide and seek, no matter
whether they be the dainty scions of
lordly Fifth avenue houses or sooty lit
tle beggars from South African hovels,
or heathen Chinese, but when they are
grown and begin to learn the games of
love they each make up games of their
Perhaps the little play toying with
insignificant objects is the nearest ex
pression of universality in love games
of caressing. Even those borightei1.
peoples who have not discovered the
ecstasy of kisses enjoy this petty trif
ling of which the lovers in the Mill
on the Floss are a type. Kitty was do
ing her fancy work and asked Stephen
for the scissors, which were passed and
repasscd between them without the
least reason for doing so. except the
proximity to which it lcd and the hand
ling cf one object together. It is tho
trick of the boarding school hoyden
and who shall say hov/ many others of
the fair-to let her shoestrings untie
so that thc spruce stripling who has
captivated her heart may have the op
portunity of tying them again. The
dignified Oriental wooer who disdains
the intimacy of a kiss does not scorn
the delights pt* examining the orna
ments worn by his beloved not only
with his eyes but his fingers.
The more naive tho period or social
class, thinks Professor Gross, the more
common is this sort of play. At the
spinning fetes of olden-time Europe
; coupl-2 after couple sang a spinning
i song while their hands crept in and
about the spinning apparatus.
Plays of self-exhibition arise out of
j the lover's desire lo present himself
in the most advantageous light possi
ble before his loved one. "With this
in view he plays a part. He acts as
though he were braver, stronger, more
j skillful, handsomer, of more delicate
i leeling and keener intelligence than
he is actually and habitually. A com
ic paper once observed that a lover
always tries to be as lovable as possible
and hence always makes himself ri

One of the features of self-exhibi
tion arc the contests of many swains
before their ladies. The old-time tour
naments, whose victors were given the
privilege of crowning their chosen
one as thc queen of love and beauty,
are one of the many examples. And
man in a contest feels double stimula
non to do his utmost when ladies are
present. They have lonii learned that
prowess and a martial bearing are ad
mired by the fair ones. This admira
tion is in part a relic of the earlier
form of lover-like exhibitions. Th>e
Indians use their war paint and feath
ers primarily to delight the squaws.
In some tribes mon do not dare to
marry, for no wr-man will have them
until they have shin a number of foes.
The conquest of rivals in ibis way
becomes one means of self-exhibition.
lt proves his supremacy. In some
tribes thc youths gather together and
fight (or the belle, and the conqueror
bears her off as bis prie. In the west

In the Arran Islands when thc peo

maiden whom they think ought to be
married they gather together and con

MERRY CAME CF SQUASH.
Prom loo* to 1$c Most Popular of til?
Squash, whidh was comparatively
little known a year or so ago, prom
ises to be one of the most popular
of this summer's sports, and squash
courts are going up everywhere.
Just why the unpoetical name of
squash should have been given it is
not discoverable. It certainly has no
bearing upon summer squash, the
vegetable for, being an in-door game,
it can bo played as well in winter as
in summer, and no other points of re
semblance can bc traced.
Properly speaking. Squaslh Ball is
the title, and "squash" is only the ab
To have your squash-court this sum
mer, if you have any pretensions to
style, is as necessary as to have your
ping-pong table or your automobile.
Last summer the game was to much
of ;.. novelty that thc story is told of
a family in a fashionable sea-side re
sort who made their way into the elect
through their squash-court, it being
the second only of its kind in tho
place. This year it is even more essen
tial to one's social success.
Yet there are many people clamoring
lo know what squash is.
Squash helor gs to tho lawn-tennis
family, and under different titles and
with a few minor differences, has been
known since thc time of Henry VIII,
of England. As yet there has been
little squash literature, hence tho
world-a^-largc has had no opportunity
of becoming acquainted with it in
story. Even the squash joke has not
yet been sprung. The game of fives,
which is still played extensively, ls
of the squash family. In this game,
as it was originally played, thc hand
was used, hitting a ball against a wall
on lines laid out for a tennis-court.
Going back into early history, we find
the royal princesses playing lennis in
this way. using their fair hands, or, in
some cases- gloves. When the bat
came into usc it was called Bat Fives.
Then another evolution, and the ten
nis-racket c?mo upon the seen.-1. The
walls were enclosed, a floor and ceil
ing added, and voila! rackets. Squash
h merely a variation of rackets, and
the courts aro the same. Thc walls
are marked off by painted lines; the
service-line, above which the ball must
strike when served, is six feet from
the floor. Another line, called thc tell
tale, is two feet from tlhe floor, and
after a ball has been served, the sec
ond played must return it onto the
front wall above the telltale before it
has bounded twice. The players then
continue to return the ball alternate
ly until the rally is lost. A ball is
in play until it touches thc roof, posts,
cushions, or is driven into the gallery.
It ls then out of court. The court is
divided by a line into two equal
spaces. There is a cross-cut. through
the centre. 23 feet from tba back wall.
The game is played with a ball, usual
ly of India rubber, and a light-weight
tennis-racket, strung with gut. The
squash-bat weighs -between nine and
ten ounces. Keeping out of the way
is one of the objects of the game. If
the ball hits the striker's adversary
above the knee, or if it hits the strik
er's partner or himself, it counts
against the striker. One of the rules
of the game is that every player
should get out of tlhe way as much as
possible. If he cannot, the marker is
io decide whether it is a let or not.
The marker's decision is considered
Squash may bc played either with
doubles or singles, and in a four or a
three walled court.
Any carpenter can build the house,
which is not elaborate in any way.
T/he height of the front wall is 16 feet.
The total length of the court is 31.C
feet, and the breadth. 1G.3 feet.-Col

AN ITALIAN CAPTAIN
Cured by Pe=ru=na of Catarrh of the Stomach
After Doctors Failed.
Hon. J. D. Botkin, Congressman
(rom Kansas, Writes an Interesting
CAPTAIN O. BERTOLETTO.
Captain 0. Bcrtoletto, of the Italian
Barque "Lincelles," in a recent letter from
the chief office of the Italian Barque Lin
eel les, Pensacola, Fia., writes:
"1 have suffered for several years
with chronic catarrh of the stomach.
The doctors prescribed for me with
out my receiving the least benefit.
Through one of your pamphlets 1 be
gan the UM of I'cruna, and two bot
tles have entirely enred me. I rec
ommend Peruna to all my friends. "
In catarrh of the stomach, as well as ca
tarrh of any part of the body, Peruna is
the remedy. As has been often said if IV
runa will cure catarrh of one part it will
cure catarrh of any other part of the body.
Catarrh is catarrh wherever located,
and ; lie remedy that will cure it anywhere
will cure it everywhere.
The following letter from Congressman"
Botkin speaks for itself:

continuation of them will effect a perma
nent cure. Peruna is surely a wonderful
remedy for catarrhal affections.-J. D.
This is a case of catarrh of thc stomach
which had run for twenty-five years, ac
cording to his statement, and Peruna has
at once come to his relief, promptly accom
plishing for him more benefit than he had
been able to find in all other remedies dur
ing a quarter of a century.
It stands to reason that a man of wealth
and influence, hke a Congressman of the
great United States, has left no ordinary
means untried and no stone unturned to
find a cure.
If such cures as these do not verify the
chi ?rn not only that, dyspepsia is due to ca
tarrh of the stomach, but also that Peruna
will cure catarrh of the stomach, it is im
possible to imagine how any evidence
could do so.
If you do not derive prompt and satis
factory results from thc use of Peruna,
write at once to Dr. Hartman, giving a
full statement of your case and he will be
pleased to give you his valuable advice
