The capitalist stared at the shining

The capitalist stared hard at the
thing in his hands.
"Tell me about it," he snapped.
The young man drew some papers
from an inner pocket. They were
covered by figures and drawings.
Five minutes later he was still
talking when a girl appeared in the
doorway.' She was fair and slender,
a girl of two-and-twenty.
When she saw the caller she did
not advance, but waited in the door
/ "That's a dangerous contrivance,"
she heard the old man say.
, "Why?" the caller inquired.
* "It ls too revolutionary. It might
get Into unsafe hands. If wo took it
there would be new machinery to
purchase, new methods of manufac

well enough as it is. Our machines
are the best in the market. We are
producing to the very limit ? "

improvement," the youn?, man urged.

eyes were gray.
"Quite, by accident," she said, "I
overheard part of your conversation

"I understand," he answered.
"If there seemed to 'life any-any

He bowed. ..-*.??..:
"Yes," he answered. \'
\The girl hesitated.,
..if I am not mistaken, Mr Andrus
--I overheard but a part of the con

thing of value for which you hope to

"Yes, Miss Carter."
"You need capital to'Iauhch it?"
He looked at her wonderingly. . ?
"I overheard tho offer my father

She hesitated again..
"I have some money lying idle, Mr.
Andrus, money I would be glad to in

in your device?"
The young man's face flushed.
"Miss Carter," he said, "I can only
thank you for your kind sympathy,
and your well-meant offer. You are
sorry for me. You think I have been

But I am young and-hard knocks are
familiar to me. You know nothing
about me-nothing about my inven

"You are quite in earnest about

however, and assure you that the in

"Go on, daddy."
"The boy had perfected a valuable
device, a transmitter of a remarkably
ingenious type. He brought it to me.
He thought the Carter Motor Com
pany could use it. I knew it was a
good thing the instant I looked at it.
But you know daddy isn't exactly

"I know, daddy."
"Well, ? gave him to understand
that we didn't want his advice. But
I offered to btfy it from him and de
stroy it. He wouldn't sell. Some
how I felt sure he wo?ld come back
and accept my offer. 1 was positive
he couldn't get the capital he needed
to start a piant and manufacture the
thing-and that's where I was wrong.
Somebody let him have the 'money." ?
"Who was it, daddy?"
"I don't'know. But the p'ant was
built and proved a gcbd thing from
the very start. The boy found a mar
.ket for his invention almost immedi
ately, and the, little factory has been
working right up to its "limit. . It got
me scared some time ago. And I
was still more scared when I heard
that the National Engine Company
wahtsd the factory's entire ' output.
Tho Carter Motor Company couldn't
stand by and let that happen. And
so I was there in your old friend's
office prepared to arrange a deal with
this gifted youngster. Well, he came
in presently-a fine looking lad, man
ly and-scrupulously polite. He really
seemed glad to see me-which might
be wondered at. Well, I made up my
mind in less than no time that there
was nothing to be gained by beating
about the bush, and so I came right
out and offered him $200,000 for his
plant and his patents, and in addition
to this the position of manager of our
works with a $10,000 salary."
The girl suddenly laughed.
"Why, that was fine, daddy. And
what did the gifted young man do?".
"The gifted young man never
turned a hair. If he was surprised at
my offer he carefully concealed the
fact. He thanked me, but added that
he would be guided entirely by his
partner, who owns a half interest in"
the factory and patents. He prom
ised to let me know his partner's de
cision very soon, and I had to be sat
isfied with this promise. And that,
dearie, is what I call eating humble j
pie-and lots of it." !
There was a little silence.

Spelling Ont Numerals.
An amusing instance of typograph
ical blundering occurred lately in a
well-known newspaper. A paragraph
read as follows: "Some time ago a
fiat in a not unfashionable quarter ot
the city was let unfurnished to 10
ants, who offered and paid a month's
rent in advance." The explanation
of this slip is almost as amusing aa'
the misprint itself. It is a rigid rule
of some printing offices that, while
numbers below ten are spelled in full,
all numbers higher must be in fig
ures, to save space. It is, therefore,
really very dlfl&cult for a compositor
tc spell "tenants," though "ninepins"

I JACK JOHNSON AND
New York.-Should Mr. Jack John
son, the conqueror of Tommy Burns,
and who claims to be the heavy
weight champion mitt pusher of the
world,,- meet James J. Jeffries, alfalfa
fanner of Los Angeles, Cal., In his
rambles, lt would be good policy for
i the somber-hued gent to take thfi
back \track. If Mr. Johnson should
continue his course in Mr. Jeffries'
direction, he will in all probability
learn something of thc fighting game
that he never learned of-and he will
have dreams-no mistake about that,
and Mr. Jeffries will produce them.
But why should Mr. Jeffries' assault
the colored man from Texas? In a
speech in a local theater a few nights
ago Mr. Johnson said that Mr. Jeff
ries was too old and too fat to fight.
Mr. Johnson probably made a true
statement further along in his
speech when he declared dramatically
"The public or anybody else will
never live to see James J. Jeffries
and Jack Johnson fight" Jack John
would not climb into a ring where
James J. Jeffries wa^for "$1,000,000.
Al Kaufman, Billy^Delaney's CalU
fornia protege, has made a new code
of ?.thies for the prize ring. Kauf
man has just issued a challenge to

where he is at his best. "Foxy"
Billy will be remember as the gen

When Delaney discovered Kaufman
Al was only 19 years of age and had
won many amateur bouts in his own
town, generally v/ith a single punch,
earning for him the sobriquet of "One

nursing his pet right along ever since
Kaufman's defeat by Jack O'Brien.
Kaufman's first professional fight.
Kaufman is 23 years of age, G feet
tall and weighs over 200 pounds when
in condition, and is the only white
man outside of Jeffries who ranks la
the first division. Jack Johnsoon
can't very well get out of a match
with the big Californian. He can't
very well run out of this match, as
he has no other country to go to. If
he goes to England he is likely to be
nabbed for broken contracts. There
is no boxing in Paris, In summer, and
if he stays in this country, he will
need money very soon, and ueed lt

filed against him.
A great deal is expected of Kauf

Make the box to suit the hens to be
trapped. Hang the entrance door so
when ft shuts down the hen is trapped
at about a half inch from the point
where the door reaches when raised
up. Inside and at the left hand of the
floor, screw in a screw hook about
i wo and a half inches long. Raise
the door and bring the hook under
?he edge of the door. As the hen
enters she touches the door a trifle,
which releases the hook, and down
comes the door.
I have made a small sketch to make
It plainer. The hook is screwed ir-to
a cross piece far enough from thc
side to catch the door. I prefer slat
doors and I have a door over the
nest for convenience, but ft is not
essential.-C. M. Hayes.
Thc nest is a very important mat
ter. Tf the hen is permitted to have
her way sh? will seek a secluded lo

a cool place. During the winter per
iod her desire is for a warm nest,
where the warmth imparted the eggs
will not be dissipated too rapidly.
What we desire to allude to particu
larly is the nest box after warm
weather begins. The nest box is the
source from which lice often come,
because the heat from the hen's body
makes the conditions very favorable
for the propagation, of lice. The nests
are not cleaned as often as they
should be. At least once a week the
nest box should be taken outside, the
material removed and burned, and
new material placed in the boxes. If
any signs of lice appear, sponge the
boxes lightly with kerosene and apply
a lighted match thereto. A flame
will run over the box, but will not
burn it to any extent. After placing
the new material in the box, dust the
whole with fresh insect powder and
place the nest in a cool and secluded
location In the poultry house.

If fowls have access to all the

Plank Blown Through Tree.
Each day brings to light some new
freak of the recent tornado which
caused death and destruction in
Georgia. As au evidence of the freak
ish force of the wind a big pine tree
and a large plank on the property
of the Hon. S. M. Roberts, abont
twelve miles from Atlanta, are now
joined as if .done by an expert car
penter. Although the tree was a large
one the plank .was picked up and
driven through tie centre as neatly
as if shot from a gun. Not only was
the plank shot through the tree, but
went through without tearing the
tree. The plank was picked up in
the yard of Mr. Roberts' sawmill and
other planks in the pile were not
molested by the wind. So singular
does Mr. Roberts consider this ac
tion of the tomado that he has ppsted
a notice telling how the plank was
driven through the big pine and or
dering that it shall not be cut down.
