H ev. Sam 3?. ?Tones
Kansas City, Mo., March 6.-Give
me your attention, yoong man. I've
been a young man; ?now I am an old
mon, so to speak, j Admitting your
intelligence I claim tnat experience
aud observation haye helped nie to
see some things that simple intelli
gence does not otyerfe. There are
two words whioh covej* three worlds,
success and failure. God has endow
ed you with violition, and that moans
choice, and choice iceans, simply, I'll
take this, you may have that. Choice
means also two or more things aro
offered. If there was only one thing
in sight then it's Bobson's choice.
If one is a good thing and the other
bad, then choos? tb/j good. If both
arc good, then take the gooder. If
both are bad then take noither. Not
like one of tho candidates for gover
nor of Georgia Said the> other day :
"Of two evils, I never take the great
er." That's politics, pure and sim
ple, and the devil is running that
Beal success has its foundations
just like the houses we live in, and
the very basis of success is good char
acter. As sure as that the constitu
tion follows the flag, so good oharaoter
must lead the way in all successful
undertakings. Tho young man who
thinks ho must drink whiskey and j
"cuss" to help you mt ko a man of I
himself i J a fool .to begin with. If I
were running a saloon I would want a'
decent, sober barkeeper,
I was not long finding a plaoe of
trust and honor for a young man of
my town, some time ago, when I said
to a leading railroad official with whom
I wanted to place bini, "that he was
not oniy bright and efficient and trust
worthy, but that ho was as clean in
bis life as his sweet Christian mother.
He has never touched whiskey, wino
or beer, swore an oath or handled a
deck of cards." "Send him to me,"
said tho official, and that young maa
has been promoted the third time ic
twelve months, and I dare say, will
yet be president of that great railroad
system. It pays to bo decent, it never
pays to be otherwise. The boy who
knows how to bo a gentleman, and
knows how to keep from being a dog,
is in possession of the knowledge
which makes him master of the situa
No use talking, young man, about
your having self control and will
power. The way to keep olean is not
to rub up against the things that will
"smut you." I don't care how much
you may boast of will power, whiskey
will make you drunk.
Again, God nor man can ever help
you to be somebody, until you make
up your mind that you will be by die,
dc- or dio.
This message to you, young man, was
inspired by a notice of that greatest
living pianist, Paderewski, whioh I
saw in the Kansas City Journal of
yesterday. The article was headed,
"Paderewski's Suocess Achieved
Through Much Hard Work." His
reoital is to occur hero in Convention
hall, March 17th, I quote from the
notice as follows:
"Paderewski has simply come to bo
the dominant figure in the world of
music, a domtnanoy acquired by years
of patient. struggle a:.?? stoical endur
ance of poverty and privation. The
success achieved by Paderewski is not
the result of chance, hut the outcome
of sweat and suffering, heart burnings
The press has given to the world
tho story of his life; how at 19 years
of age, he softened the sting of pov
erty by marrying a girl equally as
poor. It is now almost impossible to
estimate Paderowski's wealth. His
first tour of America netted him $103,
000; his second $181,000. This is the
fifth, and each succeeding one has
marked a financial gain over the pro
ceding one. When it is considered
that in all the European countries
Paderewski is equally a favorite, it
will be Been that his ten years of suc
cess1 havo nette! him millions. 'Even
with all his immense charities and
opeh handed generosity, ho has not
been able to despatch all his wealth.
Ho has a magnificent home in Poland
and Switzerland and princely apart
ments in Paris. Tho newspapers no
longer busy themselves with his flame
colored hair or melancholy eyes or how
ho appears on the stage, or how ho
. holds his knife at the table. But now
thoy tell ns of his thorough deep
knowledge of the innormdat secrets and
feelings of tlje "piano soul," and his
own acquaintance with the hopes and
fears, sorrows and sufferings that fill
overy human life. Now the press
make it easier for him to do' what no
other man can do. t
PadaftiwAki made up hm mind that
he would wear the crowns of Chopin,
BuboDstoin and with his mind made
np he worked and - suffered and per
severed until ho hci* as surely ?O? as
9 the Evangelist, has
ag to Say.
that he wears their crown*. Young
mao, this not only holds good with
Paderewski, but it's true of all great
mea, from Adam down to Paderewski.
Work, perseverance, suffering.
Throw to the winds all easy jobs. A
thing that is easy done is not worth
doing. The things you do that call
for brain, sweat, soul sweat and body
sweat are the things that make suc
cess not only possible but sure.
"An idle head is the devil's work
shop." . Yea, and an idle hoy is the
devil's saddle horse, and the devil is
most generally in the saddle, too.
Shun idleness like yon would a
saloon, for they are two things that
get mighty thick On short acquaint
Again, take care of your integrity.
When it becomes necessary in your
j Ufo for you to tell a lie, then you need
togo back and start lifo over again.
You can't build on a .Ho. There is
but One thing in the world that wi?l fit
down on a lie, and that is another lie.
Again, if you would succeed, he a
gentleman. Kindness, and courtesy
coBts but little, but they are compan
ions of good fellowship and furnish a
store house for friends, and you will
need friends, just as you .need air and
water. Again, avoid all games of
ohance, from craps to cotton futures.
They destroy your taste for honest
toil, just as yellow-back novels destroy
all tast* for useful knowledge. A
dollar earned by sweat and toil is
worth a million on puts and calls.
Again, cherish only the friendship
and companionship of good men and
women. Be as careful of your com
pany as you are o' your destiny.
Again, marry, young man, marry.
Tho old question pretty nearly covers
tho ground, "Arc you a married
man or a dog?" God's best gift to a
little boy is a good mother. God's
best gift to a young man is a good
wife. There are too many young men
postponing marriage until they have a
competency to support a wife decent
ly, as they say. That won't do, young
man. You are as foolish as the fellow
who is waiting until he gets good be
fore he joins the church. I was bust
ed when I married and if my daddy or
daddy-inlaw, either, ever gave me or
my wife a cunt we lost it before we
got home. Don't ever wait to perform
a good deed. Too many old maids
these days, and whenever I see an old
maid I know some man has failed to
do his duty.
Again, young man, stick to the Bi
ble of your mother and the God of
your father, for it is religion that must
give solid comfort while we live and
it is religion must supply solid com
fort when we die.
Don't be skeptical, agnostical or
jasackical in religion.
Read your Bible every day. Kneel
down morning and night and pray to
God. Observe these things and you
will succeed in your calling as Pade
rewski has in his. If you don't, you
will wind up in the end a Rewskipady.

Cat Sucked Baby's Breath.
The death of the 8-monihs old
Uby of Gustave Brown of 1210 Gay
lord S.t, has proven to apprehensive
Denver mothers the old time belief
that a oat may take the life of a ohild
by simply inhaling its breath. Tao
strange caso brought under the actual
knowledge of Dr. F. E. Waxham,
proves conclusively for the medical
profession the hearsay of old family
physicians and the tales of old-time
medioal authorities long out of print.
The infant don of Gustave Brown
was killed by his favorite playmate, a
great maltese oat, .while taking his
morning nap in bis carriage in the
baok yard of the reeidenoe yesterday.
The examination of Dr. Waxham, the
mother's observations and the investi
gations of Coroner Horan, all bring
the samo nnoontradiotcd deoision.
The oat killed the sleeping baby by
putting its - month within the ohild's
mouth, sucking its breath, the ohild
breathing baok the cat's breath till
"It is my positive belief," said Dr.
Waxham this morning, "that death
came to the baby in just this way,
and for my own experience, tbe old
saying is prove J. I have heard of
death having been caused in this way
before, but I have never had reason to
believe it until now. This is tho first
instance that ever came to my obser
vation and that I have ever heard of
Mrs. Brown is certain that Dr.
Waxham is right in his conclusion.
"Yo s ter day morning," she says,
"I put the baby in its carriage as
usual for its nap, and as I have always
done, put him in the back yard, with
the parasol lowered to keep tho light
out of his eyes and to prevent the ad
mission of too much cold air. I had
had a man engaged to olean the house
and was so preoccupied and busy dur
ing the morning that I did not run
out to look at the baby as often as I
generally do, to see that he is well
covered and sleeping quietly.
"At noon when we wore at lunoh
eon I left the table to look toward tho
the baby's carriage, and at that mo
ment I saw the parasol moving. I
thought tho baby had awakened. He
is so swee-u and happy when he first
wakes that I thought for fun I would
just run out and steal some of his
smiles and play 'peck-a-boo' at him to
see tho dear little thing's delight. I
weut to the kitohen door and as I
opened it and started [down the steps
I saw the maltese puss, the family
petj jump out on the other side of the
oarriage from under the parasol over
the baby's faeo. I thought nothing
of it especially, since the cat often
j jumps into the foot of the oarriage
and lies there asleep while tho baby
takes his nap.
"When I reaohed the buggy, push
ed tbe parasol away and leaned down
to look at the baby, there he lay,
dead, his little mouth slightly ajar
Not a mark of disfigurement on his
This part of Mrs. Brown's story is
corroborated by Mrs. F. S. Knox, a
neighbor, who also saw the oat jump
down from the baby's carriage, and
Who ran over to the Brown yard when
the mother'c ?oream announced that
something terrible had happened to
the ohild. ' Dr. F. E. Waxham was
hurriedly summoned and two other
neighbors. Mrs. C. J. Dutoh and
Mrs. M. N. Jones helped their friend
in her effort to restore lifo to the
ohild by rubbing and all the other
methods they knew.
Dr. Waxham s efforts proved equal
ly fruitless. Tho ohild had probably
been dead he said, for some time.
The strange oonduot of the cat during
the efforts to bring the baby back to
life was remarked by all four women.
"When we took the baby in the
house," says Mrs. Jones, "the cat ap
peared uneasy and followed close be
hind Mrs Brown. When the baby
was laid down and wo were all work
ing over it, the oat sat with its eyes
fixed on the ohild, as if perfeotly fas
cinated, and seemed under an almost
hypnotic influence. It got up and
walked around us and appeared to ho
orazy to get nearer the baby, until we
finally became so annoyed at its strange
behavior that we had to put it out."
Mrs. Jones deolares that she has
twice before known of instances in
which a oat caused death in a way
similar to the death of Mrs. Brown's
"Mylittle coutnV a child-4 yiars
old,*' she says, "was killed in the
same way a few years ago while
The old assigned cause of this
strange passion in the oat io due to
tho belief that tho taste of tho milk
in a child's mouth first induces the
oat to. put its own mouth within that
of the child. As it gets the tasto of
tho milk, it sucks tho child's breath
and finally becomes overpowered with
and unexplainable fascination. Tho
old explanation is held to bo true, in
the lack of a better ono by thc child's

A Hobo Fumigated at Rock Hill.

up to tho Rock Hill yards to be fumi

set inside a small fumigating apparatus
loaded with formaldehyde, closed aud

did not leave tho immediate neighbor
hood for a few moments and 'twas
only a few moments till tuere was
borne to his cars a succession ot'
bumps, thumps, yells, whoops and all
sorts of noises that could have been
heard a mile away. Tho whoops wcro
described as of thc sort that a man
would give if a grizzly bear were very
dose to his heels and an alligator in
front. All the time thc whoops and
yells went on thc knocking continued.
When the officer located the sound, as
in the car bc was fumigating, be open

His eyes were emitting flames, so to
speak, ho was puffing like a porpoise,
trying to spit, talk and snooze simul

what thc hell was thc matter but ho
was sure dead." Mr. Cavoney knew,
though, for it was tho car in which ho

attendant horrors, humiliation and suffering. This is a
strange legacy to leave to posterity ; a heavy burden to
place upon the shoulders of the young. 1
This treacherous disease dwarfs the body and hinders
the growth and development of the faculties, and the
child born of blood poison, or scrofula-tainted parentage,
is poorly equipped for life's duties.
Scrofula is a disease with numerous and varied
symptoms; enlarged glands or tumors about the neck
and armpits, catarrh of the head, weak eyes and dreadful
skin eruptions upon different parts of the body show the
?presence of tubercular or scrofulous matter in the blood.*, This dangerous
and stealthy disease entrenches itself securely in the system and attack?
