THE FEAR OFAMOUSE.

tic of i Woninn.
A mouse has long been known to be
the bitterest enemy of womankind.
Just why the average run of femininity
should fear such a helpless, harmless
little creature cannot bo explained.
During the civil war a famous female
spy was betrayed through the instru
mentality of a mouse. The woman was
masquerading as a boy and succeeded
admirably in deceiving the enemy un
til one evening while dining with' a
party of men at a farmhouse a black
mouse jumped from a cupboard to the
table, almost in the faee of the sup
posed boy. With n shrill feminine
shriek the spy threw up her arms and
rushed across the room, and, springing
on a couch, went into hysterics from
sheer fright. The men, of course, sus
pected her and, rather than be searched,
she confessed, but by the aid of the loy
al old farmer and his wife she made her
escape in the night
A well known woman physician of
Chicago says she can do any kind of
surgical work without a tremor, but
the sight of a monse turns her stiange
ly ill and thoroughly "unwomans" her.
Another woman has such a terror of
mice that she recently went insane
througl fright at one of the wee crea
tures. The woman was sweeping her
cellar when a mouse darted out from
an ola barrel and ran about her feet
She tried to step on it and beat at it
witt her broom, calling piteously to
hej little boy to help her. But the boy,
tiinking she was in fun, frightened
the terrified mouse toward the woman
whenever it tried to get away. At
length tho coy rushed at it in earnest
and the mouse darted under the wom
an's skirts and she fell to tho floor in
sensible, only to loso her mind when at
length consciousness returned to her.

It was Friday night, and tho vestrv of
the Methodist church on Shirley avenue
was pretty well filled with worshipers.
They wcro just singing "How Firm a
Foundation" when a finely built young
man entered tho room and took a seat in
tho rear. His magnificent baritone joined
in tho hymn. Somehow it must have
reached the ears, of the player, for she
glanced up quickly. As if by magic, eye
met eye. A clashing discord made Jennie
Xorton realizo that she must attend strict
ly to her business, so with heightened col
or and somewhat unsteady lingers the
hymn was Unisbcd.
At the closo of the meeting Jennie Nor
ton chatted with several, but kept out of
tho way of Mr. Gordon. Sho spent fully
tivo minutes talking pleasantly with tho
pastor. Gerald could hardly keep his pa
tience undercontrol as he noticed the look
of honest admiration in tho. oyes of Mr.
Old Deacon Norton was much amused
at tho actions of the young people. He
well knew that his granddaughter Jennie
was simply using her coquetry on the
young minister to arouse Gerald Gordon's
Two years ago young Gordon had pro
posed to Jennie, but just for the fun of
it, as she afterward told her most intimate
friend, she gave him "110" for nn answer.
"Love i . blind," or else tho young man
would certainly have been tho love in Jen
nie's sparkling eyes. Men in love will al
ways have tho sad lesson to learn that, as
a rule, n woman's "no" means "yes."
Swallowing his disappointment as best ho
could, Mr. Gordon went abroad, and for
two years-Jennie had heard from him only
through" his sister Alice.
Poor Jennie often regretted her foolish
ness, butj'was too stubborn to let Gorald
know. On thy day of tho reception tho
Gordon family were surprised at tho ar
rival of Gerald. At tho dinner table Alice
was telling tho family how poor Jennie
was obliged to give up tho reception. The
rcsult'V?n3ttiStrGcraia foui.V his way tc
the'prayer meeting, that night.
No wonder the young man could hardly
restrain hjmsclf when ho noticed how Jen
nie avoided him nud yet lavished her
smiles and honeyed wcrds on others.
"Gerald, my boy, whero havo you been
keeping yourself all this time? I am glad
to see you in Boston again. It has been
very lonesome at tho house since you went
to Europe. Jennie hasn't seemed like the
same girl, and I almost think that yon
managed to take the sunshine with you.
I am suro I don't know what's keeping
tho niiughty puss tonight. She is usually
only too anxious to get away from tthe
meeting, but this evening sho is bold
enough to flirt even with the new parson.
Young man, you'd better put in an oar,
or some one else will win the prize. I'm
going. Tell Jennie that I asked you t(
see hir home. Remember. Gerald, 'faint
heart never won fair lady.' "
Wi;.Ii this particular advico Jennie's
grandfather left tho encouraged suitor.
Willi a determined look on his hand-
some face Gerald Gordon strodo up to the
pair and delivered to tho now trembling
girl Deacon Norton's message. Miss Nor
ton welcomed him home and accepted his
escort. Sho then introduced tho soujewha.
embarrassed minister. He, sceingliovr
things stood, said a few words of welcome
to Gerald .and, thanking Jeunio for hot
assistance, quietly left them.
On tho walk homo Jennie asks her com
panion nbout his trip. Not a word of lovo
is spoken between them. Gerald realizes
that tho goljleu moments aro speeding
away, but somehow he does not havo tho
courago to tell of his love. To again hear
"N" would bo terrible, but Deacon Nor
ton's words still ring in his ears, "Faint
heart never won"
"Jennie, two years ago today I asked
you to bo my wife. You refused, and I
went away to try nnd forget you. Dis
tance only made mo realize how dearly J
loved you. My darling, I loved you then,
I love you now. Again I ask you, will
you bo my wife?"
With white, anxious faco tho young
man bent to get his answer. Was ho
dreaming? Surely his ears did not deceive
L him, for ho most certainly-heard a faint.
but a "yes," nevertheless.
Straining the young girl to himself,
Gerald showered kisses upon tho yielding
lips of tho lovely girl, who nestled so lov
ingly on his breast.
After a few minutes of lovemaking tho
man puts his hand under Jennie's chin
and, looking straight into her eyes, asks
this question: "Jennie, my dear one, two
years ago why did you say no? Answer
mo honestly; did you lovo mo then?"
"Gerald, I loved you then with all my
heart, but I said 'no,' well, 'because' "
And with that woman's reason Gerald
Gordon had to bo satisfied. Hoston Post.

In the northwest they still talk about
the last poker game that Major Ed
wards and Stanley Huntley played to
gether. They were pioneer editors of
newspapers in Dakota in the old terri
torial days. Hnntley had just sold his
paper in Bismarck for. $2,o00 cash and
was coming east. He and the major had
sat in many a qnietgame together, and
Hnntley went over to the major's office
to say goodby and play ono last game.
The major produced the cards, locked
the door, and the two-faced a green ta
ble. The major had the reputation of be
ing a skillful dealer, and Huntley's
previous- experiences had tanuht him
that cards sometimes appeared in tho
major's hand on a show down whose
legitimate existence could only be ac
counted for on the hypothesis that the
age of miracles had not passed. So he
had fortified himself for this farewell
game not only with the $2,f00 which
I he had received for his newspaper prop
erty, but also with four large but not

the game went along quietly enough.
The major was out 300 or ?400. but,
as both players remarked, the game was
"yonng yet. " At last a jack pot for 30
came and remained. Back and forth
across the table went the deck. Neither
man could get openers. Each time the
deal passed the pot was sweetened 40.
At last there was yS0 on the table.
The major dealt Huntley looked over
his cards and found four jacks.
As has been said, the major was a
slick dealer, and when a big pool was
jit stake and it was his deal he gener
ally managed to give his opponent a
good stiff hand, while taking care that
he himself had one just a shade better.
So, when Hnntley found the four
jacks in his.hand it seemed to him hat
the time had come to precipitate his
four aces into action. The jacks were
retired unostentatiously, and with a
faint a very faint shade of disap

The major was still examining his
cards with that hesitating air that some
people always believe means "studying
out a straight " Finally he said:
"I'll have to break it for 500. It's a
big pot. "
Huntley looked mournful and said
"I'll stay Ginnim a card. "
"None for me. ' announced the major
briskly, as he threw over a card and
laid down the deck. "I'll bet you 300.
"I'll raise yonoOO," said Hnntley
"Five hundred more. " said themajor.
"When I sat down." said Hnntley,
"I had 2,500 in my pocket I'll raise

had been lighted the major said:

Law court stories were especially at

charged with the murder of his mother-in-law
by mining arsenic with a dish of
rabbits and onions, which he gave her
for supper. -The setting of the court
the swearing of the jury, the speeches
of counsel, and the judge's charge were
all related by Hicks with marvelous hu

fabulation of tho jury as to the verdict
they should giv?. and their individual
reasons for returning a verdict of ac
