He, Obeyed Orders.
General Dabney H. Maury In his
Incidents of General T. J. Jackson"
says that when the war between the
states broke out Jackson was the pro
fessor of mathematics at the Military
College of the South. He wished
strongly to take command of a cadet
corps,-but the heads of the institu
tion were desirous to have him con
tinue his teaching. Governor Wise
called out the state troops and ordered
that a corps of cadets be held ready
for immediate service.. Jackson, then
major, reported at once at the guard
room as ready for duty. General
"Major Jackson, you will remain as
you are until further orders."
Jackson at that moment was sitting
on a camp stool in the guardroom with
his saber across his knees. At reveille
the nest morning he was found in the
"Why, major, why are you here?" ex
claimed General Smith.
"Because last night you ordered me
to remain where I was," was the reply.
Royal Jewels In Pawn.
The ex-Sultan Abdul Aziz pawned all
his crown jewels for a million francs
at the Mont de Piete at Paris, and
they were only just redeemed by the
Moorish government in time to pie
vent their being sold among other un
The sword of state, which is regard?
ed in Servia as a sacred relic, was ahio- i
pawned by a former king, while one
well known European monarch found
himself in such straitened circum
stances that the famous house of At
tenborough once temporarily had pos
session of all his old sliver.
Queen Isabella was, however, the
most famous royalty who made no
secret of the fact that she raised mon
ey npon the security of the portraits
of her ancestors, which hung on th?
walls at the palace Catile, her Pari
sian home. The royal lady often de
clared how deeply she was indebted to
her royal forbears for coming to her
rescue and helping her out of her finan
dal predicaments.-London M. A. P.
The Road to Success,
f Just tack this up somewhere where
you can see it:
Success consists in getting ont of
yourself everything that's In you. It:
does not consist in doing almost quito
as much or a little more than the oth
er fellow. What the other fellow doest
doesn't amount to a dent in a door
knob so far as you are concerned
The fact that he succeeds by laying
an Atlantic cable, building an Eiffel
tower, inventing wireless telegraphy or
cornering the world's supply of oil
doesn't make you a failure because you
haven't get enough ready money to
buy an automobile. You're successful
When you put to some useful purpose
every ounce of energy, every grain of
gray matter, every mite of muscle that
you've got You're successful when
you've developed all there Is. to you
and have given that to the world.
A Hard Hearted People.
Filial piety finds no place in Tibetan
character. It is no uncommon thing
for a son to turn his father, when too
old for work, out of doors and to leave
him to perish in the cold The supersti
tion that the souls of the dead can,
if they will, haunt the living drives
their hardened natures to gain by the
exercise of cruelty the promise of the
dying that they will not return to
earth. As death approaches the dying
person is asked, "Will you come back
or will you not?" If he replies that
he will they pull a leather bag over
his head and smother him. If he says
he will not he is allowed to die In

A Lightning Change Artist
The rapidity with which chameleons
change their color is marvelous. You
gather one from an outdoor shrub and
it immediately becomes dark, almost
black, hissing and with its mouth wide
open, threatening to bite. Meanwhile
it is never still, but continues to crawl
upward whenever possible-up you, up
your sleeve, always upward By de
grees the angry black changes into
whatever color is nearest If one's
dress Is of a brownish color so is the
Tho Real Thing.
"This," said the young benedict who
was just realizing that he had caught
a tartar, "is what I call real married
"I'm glad you're satisfied with some
thing." she snapped.

form you that it is not ideal."-Phila
