OUR CONSCIENCE FUND.
It was Started With a Doinar In the
"In the year IS11," says 11. E. Arm
strong in Ainslee's Magazine, "an
anonymous citizen of New York sent a
dollar to the treasury department at
Washington with an avowal that he
had defrauded the government and
wanted to make restoration. A dollar
meant somethiig to Unele Sam in
those necessitous days when the coun
try verged on war with Great Britain.
and it was a pai:riotic as well as a pen
itent act. The contributor was the
founder of the conscience fund, and
probably he died in the odor of sanc
"During the preceding thirty-five
years of the life of Ihe republic to one
had despoiled the government, or the
private conscience was callous. This
New'York man, indeed, seems to have
been the one blemish on a golden era
of national virtues, for fifty years were
to elapse before there was an addition
to the fund.
"In 18G1, just after Sumter was fired
on, the sum of $6,000 in bonds was re
ceived by the treasury department,
with a letter explaining that a sorely
tried conscience could no longer en
dure its burden of guilt. The plain in
ference was that the sender, realizing
the United States would need a mint
of money to carry on the war, judged
it not to be a time to defer repentance.
Think of the bouny jumpers who prof
ited by his contribution!
"It was really useful to the country
in another way. The conscience fund,
which had languished for wart of a
shining example, now became active.
It has been quoted pretty steadily ever
since. At the present time it amounts
to more than $300,000. Indeed, restitu
tion is getting 'to be the fashion, and
the time may come whea no one will
take advantage of the government or
do so only with the laudable design of
swelling the conscience fund when any
emergency confronts Uncle Sam."
The First "Strad"' Sent to London
Could Find No Purchaser.
Italian violins have not always held
the supremacy they now enjoy. It was
not indeed till the beginning of the
nineteenth century that they came into
vogue to any extent ottside their na
tive land. Previously Jacob Steiner
(1621-83) was the favorite maker, and
his high model had been almost exclu
sively copied by his fellow Germans
and the different makers in France and
England. When the elder Corvetto,
who had been a merchant before enter
ng the musical profession, came to
London, in 1738, he brought with him
some instruments by Stradivari. The
result of this endeavor to introduce
Italian work Into England fills one with
pathetic wonder. It is almost beyond
belief. As he could not get as much as
E5 ($25) for a violoncello he was obliged
to send the instrument back to Italy
for a bad speculation. Five rinds for
a "Strad," and not a single purchaser
to be found!
This incident in itself furnishes suffi
cient testimony to the slavish following
of the great German maker and the
strong prejudice of the violinists of
that period in favor of the high model.
It is Indeed the players who are most
to blame for the slow adoption of the
fat model, for the creator must make
what is necessitated by the demand;
but the eighteenth century fiddlers, at
any rate in England, France and Ger
many, seem for the most part to have
been content that their violins should
possess a small sweet tone, never real
izing the lack of power and sonority.
He Said to Himself.
Kansas enjoys the distinction, possi
bly, of being the only state in the
Union where a man has been allowed
by a court of inquiry to testify regard
ing what he said to himself.
A committee had been appointed by
the legislature, says The Green Bag,
to nvestigate the alleged bribery of
certain members in connection with a
defeated railroad bill. The first wit
ness called testified that he saw one of
the representatives late one night com
Ing down the hotel stairs.
"I said to myself," he went on, but
a member on the side of the defense
jumped to his feet.
"Hold on!" he shouted. "You can't
testify about what you said to your
The prosecutor retorted that there
was no law to prohibit him from so
testifying. A long argument ensued,
but a majority of the committee agreed
with the chairman that the testimony
"I said to myself," seriously proceed
ed the witness, "that M1. had been up
to Billy's room to get his pay."
The testimony was recorded and
made a part of the official record.
Chinese Points For Hosts.
"Don't eat with your ears," says
Yuan Mel, a Chinese writer, "by which
I mean do not aim at having extraor
dinary out of the way foods, just to
astonish your guests, for that is to
eat with your ears, not with your
mouth. Bean curd, if good, is actually
nicer than birds' nest. And better than
sea slugs, which are not first rate, Is a
dish of bamboo shoots.
"The chicken, the pig, the fish and
the duck-these are the four heroes of
the table. Sea slugs and birds' nest
have no characteristic flavors of their
own. They are but usurpers in the
house- I once dined with a friend who
gave us birds' nests in bowls like vats,
holding each about four ounces of the
plain boiled article. The other guests
applauded vigorously, but I smiled and
said I came here to eat birds' nest, not
to take delivery of It wholesale."
Anton Rubinstein, the Russian com
poser, in his autobiography tells of the
confusion which overcame a certain
architect of his acquaintance who had
a habit of interlarding all his remarks
with the phrase, "You understand."
On one occasion he was explaining
certain architectural matters to the
emperor, and, according to custom,
made free use of his favorite expres
"Good heavens!" exclaimed Emperor
Nicholas at last Irritably. "Of course I
understand! My dear fellow, how
could I belp it?"
Husbands' Motto a Bible Verse.
The' Husbands' Protection society of

VALUE OF AN HONEST EYE.
A RExinmess Man Experience In Hir.
iug an Om1ee Ass:stant.
A bus;iness man said that he once de
voted half a day to hiring a man
whom he needed in his oflice. In an
swer to his advertisement a great
mar.y applicants called. le rejected
the first because he would not look him
in the eye. "The second nian," said the
merchant, "was armed with a double
barreled recommendation from his pas
tor, with testimonials as to his busi
ness ability and good character; but,
though lie looked me in the eye, I saw
that we could never hope to get along
well together, and so I dismissed him.
The third interested ic the moment he
stepped inside the dcor. ie was poor
ly dressed, and, though his clothes
were whole, they were at least two
sizes too small. It was evident that
his attire troubled him not the least,
for he held his head high and as he ap
proached my desk looked me squarely
in the eye. He said that he had no rec
ommendation, that he had no business
experience, but that he was willing to
do his best to please ine. In an instant
it dawned upon me that before me
was the man that I was looking for.
He had nothing to recommend him
save an honest, bright eye and a pleas
ant face, but that was sufficient. I en
gaged him on the spot.
"Since then I have seen fit to ad
vance him over a man who had been
with me three years. The latter grum
bled, but there was reason for my
move-the new man had proved him
self worthy of promotion."
Instances might be definitely multi
plied of the value of an honest eye.
That wonderful window of the soul,
the eye, Is a sure index to character.
If you have it not, cultivate a bright,
honest, straightforward look. It will
more than repay your effort. Look up
and fearlessly meet the eyes of those'
with whom you converse. Many a
choice position has been fost through
an indifferent, flinching eye, and many
a coveted position has been won
through a fearless, honest eye. That
kind of eye is better than a hundred
SOLVING A PROBLEM.
The Green Country Brakeman Who
Introduced the "Saw By."
Many years ago a green country boy
applied to the superintendent of a
western railway for work and, some
what against the superintendent's
ish, on account of the danger to life
and limb attendant upon such occupa
tion, was given a place as brakeman of
a freight train.
On one of his first trips it happened
that his train met another freight train
at a station where the sidetrack was
not long enough to accommodate either
of them. The conductors were debat
ing which train should back up to a
point where they could pass when the
new hand ventured to suggest that nii
ther should back; that they could pass
each other by means of the short side
track if the thing was managed right.
The idea excited a good deal of
laughter on the part of the old train
men, but the boy stood his ground.
"Well, how would you go about it?"
asked one of the conductors, confident
that the lad would soon find himself
against a stump.
The boy took up a stick and traced in
the sand a diagram to illustrate his
"Good gracious!" said the conductor.
"I believe that will do It!"
And it did do it. Today every train
man in America probably knows how
to "saw by" two long trains on a short
sidetrack, but It is not so generally
known that the thing was never done
until an inexperienced country boy
who became the manager of a great
railway line worked out the problem

to bed the first night before the rest of

an hour or so later there were his
shoes standing outside his door and
frightfully muddy too.*
"I looked at them In astonishment.
Then I remembered the English cus

The Best Telephoned City.
What is the best telephoned city in
the world? San Francisco seems to be
the answer. In that city, with a popu
lation of 342,782, there are 21,324 tele
phones, or sixty-two per thousand. In
Europe, Copenhagen is probably the
best telephoned city, with 15,311 tele
phones to its 312,859 of population,
equal to forty-nine per thousand. In
Copenhagen, too, the best conditions
for the public exist, although the rates
are relatively as high as those in Amer
ican cities. London compares very un
favorably with these figures. At the
beginning of this year there were 41,
111 telephones to a population of more
than 5,500,000, or a proportion -of sev
en to every thousand people. New

New York Tribune.
"At one of the public dinners given
by Ameer Abdur Ilahman Khan," says
Mr. Stephen Wheeler in his story of'
the ameer's life, "an excited native
rushed into the midst of the assembly
and prostrated himself in front of the

"The native ascended to the topmost

"Political upholsterers," whom Addi

see in this anecdote evidence of the
ameer's full confidence in Russia's In

more probable that it was a manifes
tation of that grim humor which was
of the quaint oriental stripe with
which the "Arabian Nights" have
made us familiar.
A Chinaman's Protest.
The Peking Gazette, speaking of Chi
nese In foreign lands,-says:
"We dress and speak differently from
foreigners, just as foreigners do who
come to China. But nobody In the
streets calls us 'Chinese devils.' The
children In the streets wish to see how
long our cues are, but the police,
seeing them annoy us, scatter them.
When we go into a shop to buy any
thing, we are treated with even more
consideration than their own people.
We enter their homes, it is the same.
They seek to please us in every way,
show us curios or play the organ or
piano for us. The writer has been to
France, England, America, Japan,
Spain and South America and stayed
years, and everywhere he was treated
with the same courtesy."
It is to be feared that some Chinese
laundrymnen in this country would not
wholly indorse this view.
His Particular Muse.
He had been calling on a young lady
and had been talking against time for
several hours, not noticing that shej
was, to say the least, slightly wearied.
"Do you know," he said, after com
pieting a monologue of several thou
sand words and thinking a little fiat
tery would be appreciated, "while talk
ing tonight I have felt as if I were in
spired by one of the muses. And which
one do you think It Is?"
He looked searchingly into her beau
tiful face. The modest blush for which
he was watching proved to be a wide
yawn, which grew wider as she an
"I guess the muse that inspires you
tonight must be Euterpe."
He didn't really know anything about
mytology, so he couldn't tell just what
she meant. But when he got home he
took down his encyclopedia, and there
in cold type, staring him in the face,
"Euterpe-the muse who presided
over wind Instruments."
Be Patient With Pussy.
If you want to train a cat properly,
remember that pussy is not the stu
pid animal pictured by common super
stition. Cats certainly are not so in
telligent as dogs. Neither are they so
sociable. But once they get to know
what is wanted of them they are easi
ly induced to do It to the best of their
ability. Kindness and patience go a
long way with cats. A little whole
some correction is good for a dog, but
use a whip to a cat for one tinle only,
even if ever so sparingly, and its value
as a trick animal is destroyed forever..
Cats are simply bundles of nerv'es cov
ered over with fur, and even an unkind
word or a glance from any one they
love will cause them acute suffering.
