When the Minister Scored.
In a'v> contribution to the Christian
Register, Thomas R. Slicer tells this:
"Some men the other night, in con
versation with me, knowing I was a
minister-and it ls the spirit of this
time to put it up to a minister in
terms at least of gentle satire-said:
*We have been discussing conscience,'
and one of them said, I have given a
definition of conscience; it is the ver
micular apendix of the soul,' and they
laughed. And I said, 'That is a good
definition in your case; you never
know you have it until it hurts you.'
Tjpn they did not laugh."

She accuses Betty of the theft. Jimmy

Late that evening Betty Mercer and
Dallas were writing verses of condo

put under the door into Jim's room
when Bella came running down the
Dal was reading the first verse

With a rash that ls maddening, he das.
Then he caught sight of Bella's

"Jim is delirious!" she announced
tragically. "You shut him in there
all alone and now he's delirious. Til
never forgive any of you."
"Delirious!" everybody exclaimed.
"He was sane enough when I took
him bis chicken broth," Mr. Harbison
said. "He was almost fluent"

Insisted hysterically. "I-I locked the

what I'll do; I'll take him a drink. I
can tie it to a pole or something."
But Mr. Harbison did not smile. He
was thoughtful for a minute. Then:

said quietly, "and I wouldn't be sur

After that, of course, none' of the
others would confess that he was
afraid, so with the. South American
leading, they all went up-stalrs. The
women of the party sat on the lower
steps and listened, but everything was
quiet Now and then we could hear
the sound of voices, and after a while
there was a rapid slamming of doors
and the sound of some one running
down to the second floor. Then quiet
In an hour or so they sent for Flan
nigan, and he went up-stairs. He
came down again soon, however, and
returned with something over his arm
that looked like a rope. It seemed to
be made of all kinds of things tied
together, trunk straps, clothesline, bed
sheets, and something that Flannigan
pointed to with rage and said he
hadn't been able to keep his clothes
on all day. He refused ?to explain fur
ther, however, and trailed the nonde
script article up the stairs. We could
only gaze after him and wonder what
It all meant.
The conclave lasted far into the
night. The feminine contingent went
to bed, but not to sleep. Some time
after midnight, Mr. Harbison and Max
went down-stairs- and I could hear
them rattling around testing win

armed neutrality between us, I ex
pected to see him bow to me curtly,
turn on his heel and leave the room.
Indeed, considering his state of mind
the night before, I should hardly have
been surprised if he had thrown Hed
da at my head. (This ls not a pun.
I detest them.) But instead, when he
heard me move he glanced over at me
and even smiled a little.
"She wasn't worth it," he said, in
dicating the book.
. "Worth what?"
"Your tears. You were crying over
it, weren't you?"
"She was very unhappy," I asserted
indifferently. "She was married and
she loved some one else."
"Do you really think she did?" he
asked. "And even so, was that a rea
"The other man cared for her; he
may not have been able to help it."
"But he knew that she was mar
ried," he said virtuously, and then he
caught my eye and he saw the analogy
instantly, for he colored hotly and put
down the book.
"Most men argue that way," I said.
"They argue by the book, and-they
do as they like."
"You are perfectly right," he said
at last. "I deserve it all. My griev
ance is at myself. Your-your beauty,
and the fact that I thought you were
unhappy, put me-beside myself. It
is not an excuse; it is a weak ex

He was as abject as any one could
have wished. It was my minute of
triumph, but I can not pretend that I
was happy. Evidently it had been
only a passing impulse. If he had
really cared, now that he kDew I was
free, he would have forgotten him
self again at once. Then a new ex
planation occurred to me. Suppose it
had been Bella all the time, an.l the

had been ma:ried!

steadily. It was infuriating to have
gone half-way to meet him, as I had,
and then to find him intrenched in hil
self-sufficiency again. I got up.
"It Is unfortunate that our acquain
tance has begun so unfavorably," I re
marked, preparing to pass him. "Un
der other circumstances we might
have been friends."
"There is only one solace," he said.
"When we do not hare friends, we

out, and as our eyes met, all the cold

It was that night that the really
serious event of the quarantine oo>
We were gathered in the library,
and everybody was deadly dull. Aunt
Selina said, she had been reared to a
strict observance of the Sabbath, and
she refused to go to bed early. The
cards and card-tables were put away
and every one sat around and quar
reled and was generally nasty, except
Bella and Jim, who had gone into the
den just after dinner and firmly closed
I think It was just after Max pro
posed to me. Tes, he proposed to me
again that night He said that Jim's
illness had decided him; that any of
us might take sick and die, shut in
that contaminated atmosphere, and
that if he did he wanted it all settled.
And whether I took him or not he
wanted me to remember him kindly if
anything happened. I really hated to
refuse' him-he was in such deadly
earnest But it was quite unnecessary
for him to have blamed' his refusal,
as he did, on Mr. Harbison. I am
sure I had refused him plenty bf times
before I had ever heard of the maa
Yes, it was Just after he proposed to

Mr. Harbison went out muttering
something about a storm coming up,
and seeing that the tent was secure.

been at his heels all evening, and
called him "Tom" on every possible

a pale yellow dinner gown, with Just
a sophisticated touch of black here

in the neck. Her shoulders are
scrawny. And after they were gone

she-Aunt Selina announced that the
next day was Monday, that she had
only a week's supply of clothing
with her, and that no policeman who
ever swung a mace should wash her
undergarments for her.
She paused a moment but nobody
offered to do it Anne was reading
De Maupassant under cover of a
table, and the rest pretended not to
hear. After a pause, Aunt Selina got
up heavily and went upstairs, coming
down soon after with a bundle cov

white balbriggan stocking trailing

the library door, surveyed the in

had used as much soap as he should
have instead of washing up the kitch

two most unexpected events of the
whole quarantine occurred that night
at the same time, one on the roof ant'

DEATH BEFORE i

Prof. Munyon Says Ignorance

"Death before 100 years of age haa
been reached is nothing- more or less
than slow suicide. A man (or woman)
who dies at an earlier age is simply igno

Such was the original and rather
startling statement made by Professor
James M. Munyon, the famous Phlladel
fihia health authority, who is establish

cities of the world for the purpose of get

Professor Munyon is a living embodi

Virile, well poised, active and energetic,
he looks as though he would easily at
tain the century age limit which he de
clares ls the normal one. He said:
"I want the people of the world to
know my opinions on the subject of

devoted to healing the sick, people of

city big enough to house the people in
this State alone who have found health
through my methods. Before I get

enough to house my cured patients in

"I want, most of all, to talk to the sick

racking diseases and ailments-for these
are the ones to whom the message of
hope which I bear will bring the great
"I want to talk to the rheumatics, the
sufferers from stomach trouble, the ones
afflicted with that noxious disease, ca

women who have become chronic In

want to talk to the men who are 'all run
down/ whose health has been broken by
overwork, improper diet, iate hours and
other causes, and who feel the creeping
clutch of serious, chronic illness.
"To these people I bring a stoi?y of
hope. I can give them a promise of bet

showing the record of cures performed
through my new system of treatment
"I have taken the best of the ideas
from all schools and embodied them in
a new system of treatments individually
adapted to each particular case. I have
np cure alls,' but my present method of
attacking disease ls the very best thought
of modern science. The success which I
have had with these treatments in this
city and all over America proves its effi
cacy. Old methods must give away to
new medical science moves. I know what
my remedies are dolne for humanity
everywhere; I know what they will "do

In some parts of the south the
darkies are still addicted to the old
style country dance in a big hall, with
the fiddlers, banjoists and other mu
sicians on the platform at one end.
At one such dance held not long
ago in an Alabama town, when the
fiddlers had duly resined their bows
and taken their places on the plat
form the floor manager rose.
"Git yo' partners fo' de nex' dance!"
he yelled. "All you ladies an' gennul

"Do you know what a fortunate lit
tle boy you are?" rather patronisingly
inquired a young lady of the laddie
whose mother ls her dearest comrade.
"Here, I invited mamma to go away
for a lovely time with me, but she
wouldn't because it wasn't a place
where we could take children, and
she thought she'd rather be at home
with you. But I don't 1)lame her," as
the wide eyes grew wistful, "for I
think I'd rather stay at home also, if
I had a nice little boy like you!"
"Why don't you get one?" queried
the child, briskly. 'TU tell Dr. John
son to bring you the next one he finds,
if you like!"
Another lawyer's story arrives. We
are told that a man was charged with
picking a pocket the other day and
that when arraigned he pleaded
"guilty." The case went to the jury,
however, and the verdict .was "not
guilty." And the court spake as fol

"Through improper food, imperfect

Grape-Nuts food. It has, I assure you,
proven an inestimable boon to me.
"Almost immediately after beginning
the use of Grape-Nuts I found a grati
fying change in my condition. The ter

was perceptibly lessened and is now
only a memory-lt never returns.
"Ten days after beginning on Grape
Nuts I experienced a wonderful in
