TRIBUTE TO TEACHERS

No better reply has been made to

Lowrey (Dem., Miss.,), who protest

on the floor of the American Congress
and paid high tribute to the "conse

country school teachers of America.

was sure that be could not be in love

ber for money.

She was not young, Joe concluded
nor yet old. Yes, be would marry ber
for ber money. In a lifetime of labor
aud good fortune he might not accu
mulate such a sum.
She had never known a lover's at
tention, he decided, nor, in all prob
ability, had an admirer. Wooing
would be easy. Many sighing maidens
bud fallen before the unusual charm
of the man's adoring dark eyes which
hud not been adoring after all, but
faithless. He would first show Bar-

ranch wus accountuble for this lapse. '
And then one duy be cume to ber
frankly, brutally almost, and told ber
that he was going away.
"I can't stand It uny longer," said
Joe. "I thought I could, but I can't.
I the truth Is I married you for
money, Barbara, aud tbe money
doesn't seem to bring me happiness.
I've got to go away."
Tbe little gray lady did not cry out ;
she did not reproach him. She Just

Sibyl gave more attention to her

"Gosh, I'm tk-ed," ejaculated Harry,
helping himself to some coffee.
"What buve you been doing with

Tbe history of the monitors goes

1854 to build, according to bis design,

big guns in revolving shot-proof
cupolas, placed centrally bn the decks.
Such a type of armor-clad ship, he de
