SERIAL SHIRT FRONT5,
Id Amailng Invention Lately Patented llj
a Pennsylvanlan Who Knows tit Weak.
' nnsses of Mankind. ,
; "If anybody thinks that the Inventive
gonlus of the American people Is on the
wano he's hopd.'ssly loft, that'l all," re
marked one of the leading patent lawyers
of Philadelphia yesterday afternoon, as he
sat with hi fact on the office table and
smoked a patent Connecticut cigar war
ranted to deceive the most export judge of
Havana tolmcco. "James," he continued,
addressing tbe office boy, "bring me that
package that oame from Washington yes
terday." The lad produced a large paper parcel,
from which the lawyer took what was to
all appearance an ordinary rolored shirt,
lialng apparently of white linen, with a
small design in the form of a horseshoe and
jockey cap stamped all over the bosom and
have just taken out a patent on this
for a man In Lackawanna County, who
calls it tbe Excelsior patent paper shirt
and novelette." Here the speaker inserted
bis thumb nail at the bottom of the shirt
bosom and proceeded to tear off . a
layer of the paper of which the
Shirt was made. He then tore off an
other layer, and then another and another,
fantll six separate sheet, tn the shape of the
bosom lay on the table, and be still held
what looked like the original shirt In bis
band. "You see it's a really remarkable
Idea. Here Is this- shirt, made of very
tough paper, that won't tear without a
great deal of pressure, and the bosom Is
made up of seven layers, one for each day
in th week, If a man chooses to be lavish
with his linen, or, If be like to be an out-and-out
swell, he can change half a dosen
times a day. Now, on thi sample all the
fronts are the same, but they will be made
in ell sorts of styles,'so that a fellow can
wear this horseshoe figure if be want to
go to Coney Island to tbe races, or a
crossed base ball bat design if be I going
out to see tbe Pbiladelphias play the Ath
letics, or a neat little design in dot or
bar, or something of that sort, if be is
going off with bis girl to Atlantlo City
or tbe matinee. That'll be all fixed by
giving a card with each shirt telling the
pattern on each of the seven fronts, which
will be numbered from one to seven.
Enough collars and cuffs will go wltb each
shirt lor tbe seven fronts, and the whol,
eutUt will be sold for the small sum of fifty
cent for tbe assorted pattern and
tblrtyiBve cent for th all white. Why,
rfstbe Lltfgest thing that baa beast saxwok
aineo th telephone was patented."
"But what about tbe novelette part of
"Ah. -1 bad forgotten to show you; see
this," and the lawyer banded over one of
the torn off shirt front, on th back of
which was printed in fine type one chap
ter of a story entitled: "The Phantom
Jockey; a Romance of Sbeepshead Bay."
"There vou are, chapter L of s sporting
norelletta, and it's continued and finished
on tbe other six front. Of course, some
times you will run across th am yarn
twice on two shirt, but soin thousand of
different stories will be printed, and tbe
lots made op so as to give each city and
town as few duplicates as poealble. Any
how, the card will tell yon what atory is
on lb shirt, and you can be careful not to
buy the same one twice. Some men will
get so interested In the story when they
rip off Monday'g iront that they will tear
the whole week off, so as to learn the hero'
fate, but that will be all the better, aud is,
Indeed, part of tha achem In printing
thorn ail. Oh, I tell you this Invention is
going to be a great go, and, aside from its
other virtues, will do more toward driving
the Chinee lauadrymen back to their na
tive land than all tbe political bowls that
aver war beard."
A FRONTIER ROMANCE.
The Ilia lory Whirls a Beeeat Klopameast
la Jt'eliraaka Emphaalae.
Tbe elopenunt of Mr. Laura Soper, of
Beatrice, Neb., with James Vance, a butch
er, bring to mind an Interesting bit of
franker history. Mrs. Soper' maiden
name was Laura Ropor, she being tbe
daughter of tbe Hon. Joseph B. Roper, of
Uage County. In lNtt Laura was a beauti
ful girl of eighteen, and was engaged to a
young train boss named Kelly At tbat
time there were no setlleuiuuts west of toe
Big Sandy, In Thayer County, except at
tbe military poets and ranches along Uncle
Sam's highway. The ranihes usually
consisted of a rude log bouso surrounded
by a stockade, and wore Iroin forty to fl.ty
miles apart Kelly started aa establish
ment of this kind at Oak Grove, situated
on tha Little Blue, In what is now Nuckolls
County. On the day of the fenr.ul Indian
massacre, In August, 18(11, Laura was going
from fcprlng hanch to Oak Grove by stage.
Tbe Indiana on that day made a general
attack on tha white all along th traveled
road, from Julf.iburg tlear east to the Big
Sandy, nearly'two huudred tullos, bands
of savages springing on tbe little
settleuiencs simultaneously. The stage
In wh.ch Laura . was riding was
riddled with bullets, and the driver and
other passengers killed, the girl being car
ried off a prisoner. She was taken to Oak
Grove, where tbe Indians dsooysd hsr lov
er Into a conversation with the chiefs, and
then killed bim before her eyes. From
Kelly's ranch the red fiends went to the
borne of tbe Ubenks lamlly, where they
shot ten people, sparing only a young girl
about Laura's sise and age. Miss Roper's
friends, with tbe aid of tbe military, made
a long search for the captives, but nothing
could be beard of them except when a rov
ing acoul or trapper . would occasionally
rome In and report having seen two white
women held by the Utoa. Two years alter
the massacre the glr.s were found living
with the Indian, on the Arkansas River in
Southern Colorado, and In March, 1806,
they were secured by the United States
troops. They bad been brutally outraged
by the Indiana, and suffered every India.
that could ' be Imagined. . Hiss
U banks was a gibbering idiot, and ber
condition excited the so. dims so tbat, de
spite the I act that they were treating with
tbe Indians undr a fla- of truce,
they had hunted out the devil tbat had
driven the girl crazy and killed him on the
spot. Laura Roper was sunt to her home
1 at Beatrice. After she had ally recovered
, from tbe effects of tbe cruul treatment by
the Indians, Laura married Eli Soper, a
resident 01 Gaga County, who knew her
history. They lived together until last
week, when, after seventeen years of peace
1 aud happiness, during which five children
were born to ber, Laura skipped with a
bold, bad butcher.

Writing Mean Letters.

adopted there would be a great deal tit
friction overcome between buyer and

business error or mistake Irequenily leads
to the writing of a harsh leitor tbat will

The Season Why." ' (
My son, (here's nothing on enrlh an
myiterlouily funny ai a newspaper adver
tisement. 1 be prime, drat, last and all ilia
lime object of an advertisement is lodraw
custom. It I not was not. and nover will
be designed for any other human ournnae.
Bo Ihe merchant waits until the busy sea
son comes anu mi store I so full of custom
he can't get, his hat off, and then he
rushes to the newspaper and ptiti In his
acveniscment. When the dull season gets
along and there Is no trade and ha want -
to sell goods 10 bad he can't piy hi rent,
he Ink. out his adveitisement. That Is,
some of them do, but occasionally a level
neaaea merchant pull In a bigger one and
scoops all the business while bis nelabliora
are making mortgages to pay toe gal bill.
j uere are time when yon couldnt itno
people Iroin buying wrvtlilng in ilm
store If you planted a cannon behind the
aoor, and that's the time the advertisement
ii tent out on IU holy minion. It makes '
light work for the advertisement, for a
chalk sign 00 tbe sidewalk would do all
that wu needed and have a half holiday
six aayi in the week, but who wand to
favor an advertisement Tliev am milt
to do hard work and should be lent out In
dull dayi when a customer has In lie
knocked down with hard foe a and kicked
insensible wi'b bankrupt red ucl Ions and
dragged In with Irresistible lUmrht.r of
prices belore he will spend a cent. That's
the aim and end of an advertisement, my
on, and II you ever onen a ito'e dont tr
to get litem to rome when they area! reat'y
Ticking out of tba windows, but irlva
them your adverthtement right between'
tbe eyei In Ihe dull season and you. will
wax rich and own a fast horse and twr.
haps be able to smoke a good cigar once
or twice a year. Write this down hi
you will fall over it every day. The lime
to draw buiioeu is when you want busi
