A Missourian Romance.
The story of the reunion of the
Roach brothers of Excelsior Springs
and Kearney, after a separation of
forty-one years, would make a good
foundation for a romance. In 18G1
the fatii?? ana two sons of the Roach
family, the latter namod George and
Lewis, left their Linois homo In a
prairie schooner for the West. Wil
liam.Roach, the third son, remained.
Two years after his father and bro
thers left he heard they had been kill
ed in a fight with Indians. He after
; ward moved West and located at Ex
! celsior Springs. A short time ago W.
B. Arnold of that place asked him if
he had any brothers living, arid told
him of two men named Roach who
lived near Kearney. He did not think
; it possible they could be akin to him,
but he opened a correspondence with
them. It turned out that they aro his
hrothers. The three have for years
1 been living in the same county, with
i out happening to see or hear of each
i other.-Chicago Chronicle.

While she still. waited she looked
np at the laden apple tree under
which they stood. She seemed to be
selecting, with the eye of a -connois

and white patches of cloud-flecked

held her attention, ile gazed at lier.
He had been so gazing every availa

had known her, and always with the
same sense of pleasure in the picture

loving daughter (the adjectives had
been supplied for him) of the improvi
dent, comfortable farmhouse where he
and his mother and the girl he was
engaged to were staying as paying
guests, but he saw no reason in this
why he should not admire ber for
the qualities he did not need to have
supplied for him.
"I came out meaning to pick-well,
several, not hundreds quite of apples,"
said she, "and I can't reach one."
"There is something I might do for
you," be said, seizing his opportunity,
cr trying to seize it. For, try as he
would, neither could he reach an ap
"I tell you what-that lowest branch
there; it has four beauties on it. If
you were to-" Sho looked up at
him, smiled, looked down again, pen
sively up at the coveted branch, with
a sidelong glance like a flash at him,
and then down once more. Hut she
did not conclude her sentence.
"If you would let me-if you'd only
let me lift you up," he said, suddenly
inspired, "you could reach them your
self, couldn't you?"
"Ah! That would do it, wouldn't
it? And I want them so!"
"Then I may."
"Certainly not! I'd rather-go
without the apples!"
"I am much stronger," he said.
"How if I seized you against vour
"Why, I couldn't help that, could I?"
she asked. And the thing was done
in less time than it takes to tell.
But she had only picked one apple,
the nearest, when his lady-love's
voice came to them through the trees,
calling him by name. And there was
a sharp note in her voice (like the
taste of an unripe apple) which told
them what she saw.
"If you put me down before I've
picked the four I'll never forgive you,"
said the lady of the apples; so he
held her till she had them all. though
the task was robbed of a full half of
the delights he had anticipated.
"Now, she said, when she was on
her feet again, "go quickly. Oh, poor
you ! "
"She'll cast mc off," he said.
"I should-if I were she!"
And then he turned ip haste.
"But, if she dor's, come back to
me!" she called after him.
"Well-and what? Be quick!"
"And I'll give you a bite of an ap
ple-if there's any loft!" she laughed.
The girl he was engaged to had
seen it all, she said, and fortwith re
nounced her right to that connection,
she seemed to have seen even more
than all, considerinj: what it. amount
ed to when she went over it in words.

Then she tossed him over to ruin, de

"So few faces are fresh," he said;
and that was really unkind, for sha
had a sallow complexion.
"I am not going to argue it any
more," she declared, having talked the
subject bare. "Go!"
And he went. Eut he was a gentle
man, and previous to going he had
tried his best to soothe her annoy
ance, even to frankly owning that
from her point of view-she had cause
for it. He had tried to close his ears to
tho echoing voice, his eyes to the
? laughing face, of the girl he had left
1 under the apple trees. He did all he
could to shut out the sweet, sudden
vision of freedom, of release from a
captivity which had always irked him.
It was not his fault in the present
that his past faults were accounted
unpardonable. He only went when
he was certain that he was powerless
to rerivet his chains.
He was not a poetical young mao.

he stood in front of her, and then te
repeated a verso out loud:
"Where the apple tree reddens never
Lest we lose our Eden, Eve and I."
"So, she has sent you adrift?" said
the girl, seated under tho apple tree.
"But Eve's all right."

" 'Eve's all right,' " he echoed. "God
bless her! You haven't finished the
"No-you're just in time. Here's
a whole one left," and she passed it
to him. "That's tho prettiest side,"
she said, pointing; "you may bite it
"It seems a ceremony befitting the
occasion," she said.
"There," he said, as he handed the
bitten apple back to her. "But I knew
what was good for rae tho moment I
saw it, before I ate of the fruit."
"You are not keeping very close to
tue original," she said.
" 'Eve is all right,' " he repeated.
"Dear, I lovo you! Ara I?"
Ho bent towards her. They were
so close under the shelter of the old
apple tree that she could hear his
heart beat; he could hear hers.
Her cheeks were redder than the
nppies, and there was a strange new
note in her clear voice. "Wait," she
said; "I thought I could deceive you,
but I can't. I saw her there before
1 let you-seize me."
Ho did not speak.
"I know she does not love you; she
almost said so. She said things about
you to me she never could have said
if she truly loved you. I believe she
loves someone else better. I must
not tell you why I think it, but I do."
Still he did not speak.
"I knew-I felt sure-that you did
not properly love her."
Site waited a moment. "Can you
forgive me?" she asked, very softly.
"If love prompted you?"
"i suppose that was it," she admit

PENNIES CN THE CEILING.
Nord Way of CoKectlng Money for Char
itable Purposes. ,
The landlords of some of the public.
houses in the poorest districts in the
LasL End have invented a new method
of collecting money for the hospitals,
says the London Graphic. They rccog- j
nize the, fact that the average man is :
usually charitably disposed when he I
is in a public house, and so they give
him a chance to do some good with
his money. Incidentally, they also fur
nish him with a little innocent amuse
ment. While the man is sipping his
drink the landlord ostentatiously takes
a penny from his till. He next produ
ces a thin slice from a cork with a
tin-tack run through the centre. He
then places thc piece cf cork on tho i
top of the penny and wraps them in a
piece of thin colored paper. The paper
is screwed up tightly, so that the point
of thc tin-tack pierces it, and is twist
ed in the form of a "tail." When the
landlord has completed these mysteri
ous preparations he throws the penny
wrapped in the paper up to the ceil
ing. The tack goes into the ceiling
and the penny in thc colored paper re
mains up there. Sometimes the "tail"
is cut into ribbons, and sometimes
two or three pieces of paper of differ
ent colors aro used. In any case the
customer wants "to have a try." Thc
landlord furnises the cont and the tin
tack and the colored paper. The cus
I lomcr finds the penny; with a very
! little practice anyone can make a
i penny stick on to the ceiling, and
? so in course of time, the ceiling be
comes gay with colored streamers of
paper. When the ceiling is full the
pennies are pulled down and sent to
a hospital-and the fun begins all over

The Sailorman and the Shark Cannot
"Sailors certainly hate sharks," said
a man who has returned from his va
cation over the lake. "It was off the
pilot boat, on the bay side of Ship
Island. Tony, one of the sailors, had
rowed two amateur fishermen near a
lot of old piling where Spanish mack
erel were supposed to bite at the rate
of sixty an hour, but where, as a
matter of fact, only lady fish were
anxious to snap up the bait and where
big sharks broke hooks, snapped lines
and shattered poles. Tony had been
gradually working himself up into a
fine rage against these dogs of the
deep. Time and time again his hooks
and lines had been taken. He had
began to execrate the sharks in
broken English,*but finding this inade
quate a choice flow of Italian pro
fanity was directed at the shovel
nosed maurauders. Tony is a sailor,
and all sailors hate a shark; but In
this instance Tony's natural hatred
was Intensified by the discomfort and
annoyance of having to rig up now
lines for himself and the amateurs.
In desperation he dived into a small
locker in the boat and produced a line
as big as a young rope, with a hook
that would have done for the hanging
up of meat in a butcher stall. Tony
then cut a big lady fish in two and
fixed the tail to the hook. When he
threw the line into the water he re
marked with frills, that he intended to
do up one of thc leather-skinned devils
of the deep or die.. Having thus fixed
a trap for the sharks, Tony relaxed
himself and went tu pulling in lady
fish for thc sport of the thing, leav
ing one end of his shark line tied to
"Oh, da old devil," cried Tony sud
denly. The big line had. gone out like
lightning. Tony threw down his pole,
grabbed the line and began to pull
with all his might. Soon tho ugly
nose of a five-foot shark was seen near
the side of the skiff. Its wicked little
eyes were glaring with rage. As Tony
drew lt near the boat it turned over
and crushed its teeth against the gun
wale. The amateurs wanted to shoot
with a revolver, but Tony prevented
them. He was now as mad as the
Shark. He was standing In the boat,
cursing at the writhing fish and at
tempting to get a grip on Its head.
Finally the strong right hand of Tony
had seized the shark with a grip of
steel, and pulling with his ieft hand
by tho line and raisins with his right,
managed to get the shark partly over
the side of the boat. He then reached
down quickly and with his left hand
caught the shark by its tail. Tony's
teeth gritted with anger. He batted
the head of the shark against the side
of the boat, causing the fish to make
frantic endeavors to escape, while the
blood ran from its jaws. Tony was
asked by one nf the amateurs to let
the shark go, but he was not finished.
It was only after the shark had been
ripped open with a knife that Tony,
with a final Italian denunciation, cant
him overboard. Even then the sea
devil swam on top of the water for a
long time before giving up tho ghost.*"

COW PUNCHING BY ELECTRICITY.
Novel Use of "Magic Touch" by West
ern Cowboys to Drive Cattle.
Cow punching by cowboys under the
picturesque conditions of wild west
ern life will soon be a lost art. Elec
tricity Is taking the cowboy's place,
and reports of its success In this
novel field credit the new agency with
remarkable success. One of the larg
est packing firms in Kansas City em
ploys electricity to drive cattle into the
beef beds, instead of shouts, clubs,
whips and prods.
The electricity is applied by means
of two insulated wires, connected with
the light wires over the catching and
knocking pens. The current passes
through a stick and connects with two
brass points on the end. "Punchers"
is the name given the sticks. There
are two punchers,, each six feet long,
In the catch pen, and fivo, four feet
long, in the knocking pens. The Insul
ated wires are about twenty feet long,
thus covering a distance in the pens
of about thirty feet each. One hun
dred and twenty-five volts of electric
ity are turned on, enough to make a
sharp, stinging sensation, without
leaving a mark or bruise on the beef.
The work ot punching is done in one
half the time and with half the exer
tion. The effect of the magic touch
on the steer is amusing to see.
A steer touched on thc left hip Im
mediately throws his hindquarters as
far as he can to the right. Then he
cocks one ear straight ahead and one
straight back, switches his tail and
starts straight ahead. He don't care
for a second attack. The electricity
speaks to him in a language he doesn't
understand. There is a look of sur
prise in his eyes, and 1:3 seems to
knew that all the trouble lies In the
end t?f that stick. Ile doesn't stop to
get mad or howl. He has urgent busi
ness at ti?e other end of the pen. That
is exactly where the drivers and
knockers went him. The now method
completely does away with all back
rushes and dragging In with chains,
for just as Ions as the puncher ls be
hind the steer Is just as far as he can
get In front. The saving of time and
bruised meat are also items to be

Mishaps From Which Little Children
Aro Wont to 8uffer.
Aside from the defects which are
born with the child, by far the great
est number are the result of accidents
and injuries. Owing to the softness
and elasticity of the child's frame he
escapes much that would prove seri
ous to adults. Yet the greater part of
the serious afflictions of childhood,
aside from the contagious fevers, are
the outcome of injuries to the bones
and joints. In children's ward3 in the
hospitals the majority of the little pa
tients are suffering from the dis
eases which make deformities. These
are the different inflammatlons-of the
spinal column, which cause the vari
ous curvitatures of the spine; the In
flammatory conditions '.hat, occur
ring in the hip, give ric to hip joint
disease, and the malformations which
occur in the foot, giving rise to the
shortening of a leg, causing the child
to limp. Many of these conditions are
due to an accident, such as a fall or
a bruise; some are present from birth.
A child's frame is much like that of
the young tree or sapling. It can be
trained and shaped while young and
pliable, but after lt ls full grown this
is not possible. Parents should use
every means in their power to relieve
and overcome the deformities which
will be such a burden to their children
all their lives. Mothers should con
stantly inspect their children to dis
cover any of these troubles which re
sult no disastrously. When the child
is undressed, make it bend over so as
to curve the spin*, which makes the
little projections of each vertebra
j stand out in re'ief. See that they
make no deviations toward one side or
the other. See that the shoulder blades
are in a like position and not project

A Letter From tho Exe
Pe-ru-na ia known from the Atlantic to
the Pacific. Letters of congratulation and
commendation testifying to the merits of
Pe-ru-na as a catarrh remedy ate pouring
in from every .State in the Union. Dr.
Hartman is receiving hundreds of such let
ters daily. All classes write these letters,
from the highest to the lowest.
Thc outdoor laborer, the indoor artisan,
the clerk, the editor, the statesman, the
preacher-all agree that Pe-ru-na is thc ca
tarrh remedy of the uge. I he stage and
rostrum, recognizing catarrh as their great
est en?my, arc especially enthusiastic in
their praise and testimony.
Any man who wishes perfect health must
he entirely free from catarrh. Catarrh if.
well-nigh universal; almost omnipresent.
Pe-ru-na is the only absolute safeguard
known. A cold is the beginning of ca
tarrh. To prevent colds, to cure colds, is
to cheat catarrh out of its victims. Pe-ru
na not only cures catarrh, hut prevents.
Every household should he supplied with
this great remedv for coughs, coles and so
Thc Governor of Oregon is an ardent ad
mirer of Pe-ru-na. lie keeps it continually
