G?te Family Tree
* , 8
Captain Craik was the proudest
maa in America. He had served
creditably in the war of 1812, as his
father lied in tho Revolution aud his
grandfather huckin the ".Old French
war*$*-a31 captains who had never
received a scratch or once encoun
tered tho vulgar smell of gunpow
Family pride was the captain's
specialty- flow far back he could
trace hid kindred nobody exactly
knew, but it was popularly believed
lie could, if so minded, produce sat
isfactory proof that the Craiks had
-cruised through trie flood in their
own private yacht.
Thc captain hated the new and
worshiped the old. When he went
about it was in an ancient family
gig drawn hy an old. horse of ap
proved extraction, now a mere pedi
gree in hu mess, but in whose spavins
.and windfalls tho captain took al
most ns much pride as he did in the
Captain. Craik was rich, moreover.
Time and the natural rise of prop
erty had made him sb*. Ho would
Slave scorned the acquisition of
..wealth by any less respectable mode.
. ?Trade he looked upon as plebeian
?nd vulgar. Speculation was up
.startish, and as for petroleum
His daughter and only child he had
left to die unforgiven and almost in
, want for having married a man
' ^without a grandfather. Tho poor
.girl had besought his forgiveness
>. -while her husband lived, but ceased
to do so ofter-his death, seeming
to look upon such an act as a sort
of treason to his memory. Her in
ifant son, however, soon left mother
less as welL as fatherless, was taken
jinto favor at last for the sake of
jthe blood that was in him, and 'thus
lit came that Willard Spence was
.brought up in his grandfather's
house in a way befitting the heir ap
parent to the handsomest' fortune
.within fifty miles.
Coptain Craik would have greatly
. preferred that his grandson, after
finishing at college, should have sat
down in gentlemanly idleness and
^quietly awaited his turn at the fam
ily succession. But Willard Spence
"had other views. He was far from
?haring Iii J grandfather's notions on
the value of ancestry, and though
too discreet to openly laugh at them
he felt he was more than likely to
pun counter to them some day, as
(his poor mother had done, when his
town time to marry cami. It was
for this reason partly and partly be
.cause he had an ambici?n to he
:Eamething in his own right that
^Willard prevailed upon his grand
father to enter him as a student in
-the office of Mr. Stiles, the leading
lawyer of the county.
It was with some reluctance that
the old gentleman yielded. He en
tertained a not very exalted opinion
of the bar. But then it was a step
ping stone to the bench, and though
the family could boast of three suc
cessive captains there had never
heen a chief justice in it. It was
this consideration that determined
If John Stiles was the driest of
lawyers, his daughter Mary was tbs
prettiest and most fascinating of
girls, and Willard Spence was not
the man to he slow in finding it out.
It would be the old story over to re
count, the steps of their falling in
love and how deeply they fell in.
Willard ventured to hint to his
grandfather one day, not at the
state of his feelings, but what a nicCj
intelligent young lady Miss Stiles
ivas. The old gentleman caught like
gunpowder. Ho had no .excuse foi
putting a s umnmry end to his grand
- son's legal studies and packing him
off on a foreign tour, for the young
man had said nothing to justify a
suspicion of his being in love. Bul
the captain scented danger afar and
proceeded to preach such a homily
on the ein of marrying into fsmilies
without lineage and put such a dis
inheriting look: on that Willard was
fain to drop the subject.
If tho reader has ever read Black
stone he will remember, and if he
hasn't wo will tell him, that sh th?
second book there is a folding leal
'called a."Table of Descents/' where
on the author illustrates the mc dc
of computing kindred by a tabulai
.view of the ancestors and collateral
relatives for ten or a dozen.genera
tions of a certain fictitious Johr
Stiles. The names are inclosed ir
little circles, -with lines uniting
thoso supposed to have intermar
ried, whose norries are further unit
ed by. other lines to those* of theil
" offspring. ?.
, A haye it ?" Was Willard Spence'i
exclamation as his eye fell on' thii
leaf lying loose in the volum? lu
was reading one day.
That evening it was accidentally
.dropped in* his grandfather^**;?
"What's thia?' asked the oh
^^gfentleni?n, picking it up and put
-ting on his speed.
"A paper I found in one of Mr
fetiles' bo?ks,,, waa the innocent re

,fiAnd see, herc's the name o

mother's maiden name was Baker.
By Jove, 1 shouldn't wonder if we
found ourselves related yet!"
"Miss Stiles-is she very hand
some?" inquired tho old gentleman.
"Passably," answered the young
Then it occurred to the captain
to ljicturgfdiis grandson on tho im

"Mn Stiles at once. Tho

i, ^hmh* 'tho reader, may pardon
if he likes, ile said tho paper had
dropped out of a book he brought
home to read, and of course he
"would hand it to Mr. Stiles the first
thing in the morning.
Next day Willard was sitting in
Mr. Stiles' office fumbling over a
lawbook and thinking of Mary
when his grandfather's gig drove
up. Willard wished in his heart it
had broken down by the way. Tho
thing he most dreaded was tho two
old gentlemen getting together and
coming to explanations at present.
"Is Mr. Stiles in?" inquired tho
"Yes, sir," answered the office
boy, ushering the visitor into the
back office before WiUard had time
to tell the lie he had. framed or tip
the boy tho wink.
. "Good morning, Mi Stiles," said
the captain blandly.
"Good morning, captain," return
ed the lawyer a little stiffly. "Pray
Tho captain excused the stiffness.
? man with a dozen generations at
his back had a right to bo stiff.
"I came to speak to you on a
matter of importance," said tho
captain, taking the proffered seat.
The lawyer's face brightened at
the prospect of securing a valuable
"My maternal great-grandmoth
er," the captain proceeded, "was a
Baker, and your grandfather"
"Was a shoemaker," the other
was on the point of interrupting,
for he knew the captain's hobby and
had little patience with it.
But before the word was spoken,
which would doubtless have led to
the explanation Willard so much
feared, a cry of alarm broke off the
conversation. The two gentlemen
reached the front door in time to
see the captain's horse and gig dash
ing down the street at a pace that
astonished all beholders. For the
first time in twenty years old Roan's
blood was up, and os he tore along
in a gait compounded of equal parts
of canter and stringhalt it was hard
to tell which rattled most, the dry
bones of the horse or ihe rickety
old gig. The question o.f which
would go to pieces first was Epeedily
settled by one of the hubs striking
a post, which in an instant reduced
the vehicle to its original elements
and brought old Roan up standing,
his Composure completely restored,
the crackers having ceased to pop.
"Who on earth did it?" roared
pillard didn't know unless it was j
.a sandy haired boy he had just seen
dodge round the corner, with a face
too dirty to be recognized.
What with thc? excitement rr 7 the
gathering up of the fragme i id
the arrangements necessary to get
the captain and old Roon home, tho
object of the former^ visit was for
the time forgotten. Before he
found an opportunity to renew it,
a severe attack of gout laid him up
for the season. Meanwhile Willard
Eressed his suit. Mr. Stiles gave
is consent. Mary's had already been
obtained, and the "family tree" had
settled all scruples with tho captain,
whose only regret. was- at not being
able to attend the wedding. Wheth
er he ever found out the true state
of the case is more than we can tell.
If he did, he said nothing, for
Mary's loving granddaughterly ways
soon completely won his proud old
heart, and when little great-grand
children began to prattle about his
knees it wouldn't have made much
difference what he found out.
A French Duel.
If the French are prone to chal
lenge each other to fight duels on
the smallest provocation they are
also prone to bring them to an end
with very little fighting.
It is credibly related that on the
occasion of s dye! between two
members of the chamber of depu
ties one of the combatants was tak
en with a fit of bleeding at the nose
just as they came upon the field.
"Blood!" exclaimed one of the
seconds of the other man. "Blood
has been shed. The honor of my
principal has been satisfied."
And the parties and their seconds
thereupon gravely left the field. .

MOBS AND CROWDS.
Effect of Force of Numbera and Sense
( of Irresponsibility.
Regarding the actions of mobs
and crowds a writer on psychology
6ays: "A crowd is not an aggrega
tion. It is an individual mind, im
pulsive and erratic, with its normal
or ethical level generally much be
low that of minds that have lost
their individuality in it. Thc per
sonality of tho men in a mob is lost,
for it is recognized that back of- tho
avowed causes of human actions aro
unconscious motives or forces that
defy investigations and that these
arc the mainspring of crowd activ
ity. These motives or forces aro tho
common characteristics of thc race,
and in these points people are more
alike than in thc acquired charac
teristics that come with education.
"These forces are primitive, so
that crowds are generally incapable
of rising above primitive actions.
And it is this that explains in part
how otherwise respectable people will
assist at lynchings and even at tor
ture. Some of the characteristics
of the mob are a sentiment of in
vincible power, thc force of sugges
tion and contagion. Tho force of
numbers and sense of irresponsibil
ity add to this sense of power. The
soldier in battle is braver and stron
ger-or moro cowardly and panic
sticken-than when thinking inde
"By means of suggestion and con
tagion the individuals in the crowd
aro put into a sort of hypnotic state.
The power of tho subjective mind is
seen and the personal .will and ob
jective mind disappear for tho time
being; hence mobs aro impulsive
and mobile. They aro aroused one
minute to acts of generosity and
heroism and descend the next to
extremo violence and torture. They
are credulous, believing things that
would be absurd to one outside tho
sphere of crowd influence."
'Tho Viotorioua Flea.
One of tho j usti?es.. ofjjtie United
States supWme court dined with a
Washington family who are ardent
advocates of a vegetarian diet. In
the course of dinner, which consist
ed, says tho New York Evening
Post, of all the delicacies of edible
plant life in season, the hostess un
dertook the conversion of her beef
But despite her arguments, which
were cleverly based on tho chemical
constituents of various kinds of
food, the jurist was not convinced.
"But surely, Mr. Justice," she
said finally, "you must admit that
vegetarianism means strength and
ability when yon remember that the
rabbit, which feeds wholly on vege
tables, can make such great leaps
over the ground-from hiding placo
to hiding place."
"True, madam," answered tho dis
tinguished man gravely, "but we
must also remember that the minute
creature for which naturalists claim
tho ability to jump more times its
own length than any other belongs
in the class of pure carn?vora."
Th? Two Crop?.
? popular Chinese story runs as
"Once upon a time there wero two
brothers who cultivated their farm
in nartnership^ When the season
had come to harvest their rico
crops the younger asked, 'How shall
we divide the crop between us ?* Sao
Da, tho elder, answered, 'I will take
the upper half, and you shall have
the lower/ 'That wouldn't be fair/
said the younger man. 'If I toko
the top half this time, and you take
it next time, will that do V the elder
asked.. His brother thought there
could bo no objection to this plan
and contented himself with tho
roots and stalks; looking forward
meanwhile to next year's harvest,
when all the grain should be his, as
it was Sao Da's this year. When
seed time came round again tho
younger asked, 'Shall we sow the
rice nowP *Oh,' said his brother,
'my idea is that we should plant po
tatoes this year.' "

The Wrong Bluff.
A clock in a nearby tower had just
tolled off the hour of 4 as he arose
unsteadily from the card table where
he had sat for three hours, Btretohed
bis weary limbs, bade his eorurados
goodnight, and started in the direc
tion of his home, says tbe Philadel
After a half hour's walk, ic which

insisted on getting in his way; he ar
rived at his home, took out his bunch
of keys, at last found the elusivo key
hole, and softly opening the door and
discarding his shoes at tho foot of the
stairs, climbed heavenward on all
fours. With cat-liko footsteps ho
crept across tho threshold of his bed
room and proceeded to undress. Ile
heard his wife move restlessly, which
made him hurry, and in doing so ho
upset a ohair, then stepping quickly
over to the cradle in the corner he
commenoed to rook it violently.
"Is that you John?" came his wife's

"Yes, dear," ho replied.
"Well, what are you doing?" she

Couldn't Smoke lt Through.
"I have a customer who thinks he
smokes twenty oigara a day," said a
down-town dealer. "As a matter of
fact he gives away many of thom and
throws away some that are only partly
oonsumed. However, he is firm in
the belief that he smokes n oro aotual
tobaeoo than any man in New York,
and a boast on the subject in my store
yesterday led to a curious bet.
"He declared, to begin with, that
he could smoke three ordinary oigars
in half an hour. A bystander remark
ed that no man alive could smoke even
one oigar continuously until it was
consumed without taking it from his
lipB. 'Bosh!' said my man, 'I do that
right along and think nothing of it.
"Ttl bet you a box of Perfeotcs
you oan't do it right now,' Baid the
other, and in half a minute tho wager
was made. By its terms the oigar
was to be consumed in steady consec
utive puffs and not removed from
the lips until burned to a mark ono
and a half inehes from the tip. A
clear Havana Colorado Madura was se
lected fer the test and the smoker
took a seat and began.
"He puffed like an engine for about
two minutes and aooumulated some
thing under half an inoh of ash, and
then he began to wabble. He shifted
the oigar from side to side, pulled slow
and fQBt, and seemed to havo difficul
ty getting his breath betweeu the jaws.
At any rate he kept turning his head
to avoid the smoke, and finally got
to laughing. I eould see he was in
torture, hut he stuck to it until be got
within half an inoh of the mark.
Then he jumped up suddenly,threw the
oigar away and walked out of the shop.
"I paid the bet and charged it to
his account, and he told me last even
ing that the very idea of tobacco made
him aiok. I doubt whether it would
be possible for anybody to smoke even
a moderately strong oigar through in
the manner I have described."-From
