IMO BROTHERLY LOVE FOR HIS
Percival Was Anxious to Be Forgotten
After Listening to Clarice's
Treatment of Wiegan.
At last he realized that she was
really in earnest about rejecting him.
"At least," he said sadly, "at least,
love me as a brother."
"Yes," she agreed sweetly. "Yes,
Percival, I'll do :hat. I'll love you
always as a brother."
At that moment little Wiegan, her
kid brother, came Into the parlor.
"Hey, sis, did ya see me kite any
wheres?" he said.
"Get out of here, you little hem
stitched, devilish, scheming, sneaking
brat!" she cried shrilly. "You know
you're sneaking around to see what
you can see and hear what you can
hear! Beat lt, you double-jointed,
"Clarice," he Baid, after a thought
"Percival," she responded softly.
"I've changed my mind," he said.
"Don't love me as a brother. Just
forget me."-Detroit Free Press.
"Please give me something to eat,"
asked the tramp at the back door.
"I haven't anything K.r you to eat,"
replied the up-to-date woman; "but If
you'll come in I'll put you next to the
electric current, for I read that a
theory has been advanced by a French
scientist that electric currents can be
made to take the place of food in sus

SUPREME AT CHESS BOARD
Paul Charles Morphy, American, Was
One of the Greatest Players the
World Has Ever Known.
Paul Charles Morphy, the famous
American chess player, ls classed as
"perhaps the most remarkable chess
player of modern times." He was
born in New Orleans in 1837, and was
notably precocious as a child; he
showed his, precocity particularly 5n
games of chess, and before, he was thir
teen had defeated many well-known
amateurs. For several years he stud
ied law at the College of South Caro
lina, and played chess only occasion
ally. But In 1857, at the first Ameri
can Chess congress, held in New York,
he easily defeated the best players
that could be brought against him.
In 1S58 Morphy went to England,
and there defeated Loewenthal, Boden,
and Bird, and performed the most
astonishing feats in simultaneous
games without the board. When he
was in Paris, the same year, he won
five out of eight games with Harr
witz, and gave many exhibitions of
blindfold playing. It was these last
that were responsible for the early
breakdown of hi3 health. After his
return to the United States, In 1859,
he defeated the visiting German ex
pert, ?nderssen, In seven out of eleven
games. He was admitted to the bar, and
began to practice law In New Orleans.
But the strain of his blindfold con
tests had been too great for his mind,
and he was forced first to give up
chess altogether, and then to abandon
all mental occupation. He lived In i
retirement until his death, in 1884.
His activity thus covered a compara
tively short space of time. Morphy's
skill is described as inexplicable. He
never was a close student of chess.
He played his games easily and quick
ly, with no preparation and little hesi
tation. Yet his combinations were
"remarkable for finesse, depth, ele
gance, and soundness." He also pos
sessed a phenomenal memory.
WHY CHILDREN HATE MUSIC
Too Often They Are Taught With Lit
tie Regard to Capacity of Their
Why do children hate music? asked !
an English contemporary some time |
ago, and then proceeded to answer its [
own propounded question by saying, i
acording to the Musical Leader, that: !
"The truth is that children are too ;
often the helpless victims of incompe
tent or ill-trained teachers, whose1
chief idea seems to be to stuff their
luckless pupils with such knowledge i
as they themselves possess, forgetting
that the child ls, in this respect, but I
a baby, who needs foods specially I
adapted to its digestive powers. Con-1
sequently indigestion follows and the.
child's musical health suffers.
"We believe that nearly all children
enjoy music. It is natural to them to j
love singing, and it is through sing
ing that their musical sense should
But not through such singing as we
noted some three of four years ago in I
some of the public schools. As the
English writer says:
"If children 'hate music,' it Is be
cause they are so often .">.ught un-;
psychologically and with so little re
gard to the intellect."
These same children from the pubbc
schools who were singing drivel?-g?

our great concerts given by the or- j
chestras and choral societies, and yet ;
how many can. be seen at classical
concerts and fine recitals? Here is;
a question for the head of the public 1

Both Were Trying.
"Well, well," exclaimed the million
aire, "what do you want this morn
"I've come again to ask you for ;
"Haven't I told you six times over,
on as many different days, that it Is
out of the question?"
"If I seem to be more persistent
than circumstances warrant, you, slr,
are to blame."
"I!" shouted the indignant man.
"There," said the man who loved his ;
daughter, as he pointed to a motto over
the banker's desk, "is my excuse for j
coming day after day, 'If at first you
don't succeed, try. try, try again.' Do 1
you not believe in that sentiment?" j
After he had scratched his head a j
while, the mean plutocrat said:
"Yes, I believe in that. I haven't suc
ceeded yet in making you understand
that my daughter shall not become the
wife of a fool, but I am going to keep
on trying till I do? Good morning!" i
They were discussing the rights and
wrongs of a strike, and stout and
strenuous were the arguments on ei
"Look here! Say I ain't tellln' th'
truth! Look there," said Bob Pellett,
producing a newspaper, and flourish

But Joe ignored the proffered liter

he said, loftily. "Wot I knows. I
"And that ain't much," said Bob.
"Don't want to see the newspaper,

Immediately Joseph's ire rose.

he said, vrith dignity. "3ut as I learnt
