BACON AND SHAKESPEARE.
The Two Men Separately and the
Two In One Being.
Aristotle was an extraordinary man.
Plato was an extraordinary man. That
two men each severally qo extraordl
nary should have been living at the
same time in the same place was a
very extraordinary thing. But would
it diminish the wonder to suppose the
two to be one? So I say of Bacon and
Shakespeare. That a human being pos
sessed of the faculties nece!ary to
make a Shakespeare should exist ise
extraordinary. That a human being
possessed of the necessary faculties to
make Bacon should exist is extraor
dinary. That two such human beings
should have been living in London at
the same time was more extraordinary
still. But that one man should have
existed possessing the faculties and
opportunities necessary to make both
would have been the most extraordi
nary thing of all.
Great writers, especially being con
temporary, have many features in com
mon, but if they are really great writ
ers they write naturally, .and nature is
always individual. I doubt whether
there are five lines together to be found
in Bacon which could be mistaken for
Shakespeare or five lines in Shake
speare which could be mistaken for
Bacon by one who was familiar with
their several styles and practiced in
such observations.-James Spedding's
Every human being carries with him
from his cradle to his grave certain
physical marks which do not change
their character and by which he can
always be identified, and that without
shade of doubt or question. These
marks are his signature, his physiolog
ical autograph, so to speak, and this
autograph cannot be counterfeited, nor
can he disguise it or hide it away, nor
can it become illegible by the wear and
the mutations of time.
This autograph consists of the deli
cate lines or corrugations with which
nature marks the insides of the hands
and the soles of the feet. If you will
look at the balls of your fingers, you
that have very sharp eyesight, you will
observe that these dainty curving lines
lie close together, like those that indi
cate the borders of oceans in maps, and
that they form various clearly defined
patterns, such as arches, circles, long
curves, whorls and so forth, and that
these patterns differ on the different

Bunts, His Dog
By MARVIN DANA
CopW-4it, 1901, DY Marrin Dana
T was remarkable that the entranc4
of one man sufficed to arrest tho
attention of the whole crowd as
sembled in the chief saloon o:
Maysville, Ark., but the newcomei
*,was a stranger whose appearance wa!
calculated to provoke interest. He wa:
tall and broad shouldered, and so muel
of his face as was visible beneath th<
gray sombrero was keen and resolute
The man was clad in a long frock con
of gray cloth cut low on the breast, a:
was the waistcoat, to display an even
ing expanse of tarnished linen. Or
the bosom of his shirt five splendit
solitaire diamonds stood in stately per
pendicularity. shining and glintin
with a luxurious brilliancy that awe(
every beholder. On the fingers othei
jewels proclaimed the riches of theiL
wearer, while from pocket to pocke
of his waistcoat stretched a watel
chain made of huge topazes.
This gorgeous individual stared aboui
him, seemingly oblivious of the Impres
sion his advent had created, thei
moved to a chair that chanced to b<
vacant near by, sat down, drummek
loudly on the table with his fists an
cried in a vigorous voice:
That functionary responded surlily
for he was of a saturnine demeanor
"What ye want?"
"I'm Jim Bunts from Texas, an' I'n
a white man. an' I'm passin' througl
here, an', bein' a sociable critter, I
says to myself, says I, 'Let's liquor.' S(
if all ye galoots will name yer pizer
I'll buy it fur ye. I'm takin' old ry<
myself. Let her go, Mr. Barkeeper
Here's what!" And Jim Bunts threN
down a twenty dollar goldplece on thi
table before him.
There could be no question as to th
immediate popularity acquired by th
Texan. Each person in the crowd or
dered the most expensive drink o:
which he could think, and when th(
stranger followed up his first liberali
ty by inviting his guests to renew liba
tions at his expense the enthusiasn
knew no bounds.
The only exception to Bunts' admir
ers was Lumpy, a gambler, one of th<
local "bad" men sitting at the samt
table, who, after having obtained mo
mentary favor by the purchase of on(
"drink around." now found himsell
forgotten before the prodigal hospital
ity of the newcomer.
The stranger ordered a third glass of
whisky for himself, and then, as if in
cidentally, bade the barkeeper fill all
the glasses, whereby a sensation was
caused. Immediately after the glass
of whisky had been set for him Bunts
reached his hand into a coattail pocket
and produced therefrom a dog, which
he placed with mingled fondness and
pride upon the table before him.
This animal was one of the small,
hairless Mexican breed, a sort strange
to most of those present, and strong
curiosity was at once excited. Where
fore the Texan indulged in 'a second
"That 'ere dawg's named ~ Rickets,
'cause 'e's never grown a mite since
'e was born, an' I've 'bout given up
hope of 'is gettin' any more sizable.
"Thorort yc ans!
wha ever- spn moejnjIlv
'im as a sov'nur of her. We'll drink
Whereupon all Maysville chorused
approbation of the Mexican hairless
dog, and became lost in raptures over
the Texan's inamorata.
Bunts pushed his glass of whisky in
front of Rickets and the dog proceeded
to lap up the fiery spirits.
"Ain't 'e intelligent? Well, some,"
his owner remarked complacently.
Then he continued, "An' now, bar
keeper, set 'em up ag'in an' we'll drink
the dawg's health!"
But Lumpy, made dangerous by
drink, exclaimed loudly:
"I don't drink with no pup! An',
what's more, I wont have no cur like
that sittin' at table with me."
As Lumpy ended, a change in Bunts'
face warned him and he made a swift
movement toward his hip.'- But the
stranger was quicker.
Throw up yer 'ands!" said Bunts,
and Lumpy instantly obeyed. Then
the Texan gave him a homily.
"Ye've insulted me an' also the wo
man as gave me the pup, an' also the
dawg. I oughter shoot ye. I don't
like yer face. But I'll give ye yer
worthless life if ye'll ax me parding.
Do ye apologize to me't"
"I do." Lumpy hastened to say.
"An' do ye apologize to the lady?
Speak up louder."
"Yes," Lumpy responded, raising his
"An' do ye apologize to the pup?
"I do," answered Lumpy, and his
voice was a shout.
"That's done, then. But no apolo
gies c'n make a gent out of ye, an' I
don't drink 'cept with gents. So clear
out. Get a scramble on yerself, an'
keep yer 'ands up."
Lumpy, his hands held rigidly heav
anward, rose and passed out into the
stret. When he had disappeared, the
Texan laid the two revolvers on the
table, one on either side of the dog.
Then he addressed the company:
"That dawg stays right there, ye
bet! Name yer pizen, gents."
Outside Lumpy relieved his feelings
13y some guttural oaths and set out for
the worst drinking hole in town,
where he knew he could find the as
sistance he wished. There he held a
whispered conversation with Scratch
es, a burly desperado whose face had
been slashed by a bowie. His last
words to this ruffian were:
"Take the Kid with ye. He ain't so
scary to look at as ye be."
In the saloon the~ chair vacated by
Lumpy had remained empty. The
mod had a sunerstitin..azninst that
seat, but as itwas te ony empty
chair in the room it was natural that
when two late comers entered one
should seat himself there, while the
other half leaned, half sat on the ta
ble beside it. One of these two was
0 Scratches; the other, a ,young, rather
winsome faced man, was the Kid.
Bunts, now jovially : .. but in
possession of all his facu teslemand
ed that they drink his health and that
of Rickets. le waved his h'and in in
troduction toward the pup, which now
showed signs of excess, for he swayed
a little, and his red eyes blinked heav
"He is a cute one," said the Kid
-Scratches grinned evilly and put out
his hand to pat the pup. Rickets show
ed his appreciation by a snort and a
snap that brought a howl of pain from
"Playful, ain't he?" Bunts exclaimed
and roared with laughter. Scratches
scowled, but controlled himself after a
moment and tried to smile.
But the Kid speedily ingratiated him
self with both Bunts and Rickets, pat
ting the dog without hurt, to his mas
Interest In the stranger was now
waning. Some of the men left the sa
loon and In.the course of half an hour
Scratches was able to possess himself
of the third chair. At this juncture
the Kid insisted that the' sfWinger
should drink at his expense.
"Three!" he called to the barkeeper.
In a moment the drinks were on the
table. The Kid seized one glass and
passed it to Bunts.
"There's yer liqror!" he cried cor
dially. "Drink hearty."
But the devoted Bunts could not for
get his duty to Rickets. He delayed a
moment to set his glass before the dog.
"Take a pull, Rickets." he urged.
The swa:.ing dog picked up his ears
at the smell of the spirits and dropped
his nose into the glass. His greedy
tongue darted once into the whisky
and was withdrawn into his mouth.
Once and only once-that taste was
enough. Rickets stopped swaying, and
his eyes opened wide. Then he turned
and stared reproachfully at Bunts and
"Now, that's the most curi's thing I
ever seed!" the Texan exclaimed.
"Never knew 'im to turn up 'Is nose
before at good liquor. He's sick, that's
There was a minute's .silence, while
Bunts sat eying the dog solicitously.
Thcu suddenly an idea came to him,
and he laughed 2easantly. The next
instant his hands 'Jl on the revolvers,
and in a trice both men were covered.
"Put up yer 'ands:" he cried for the
second time that night.
The crowd. startled, looked up and
saw Scratches and the Kid, their hands
aloft, staring fearfully into the deadly
tubes. Then Bunts, now almost sober
under the stimulus of his idea, ad
dressed the two:
"Ye're a nice pair of galoots! Strolled
in 'ere with the plan of dosin' me with
knockout ~drops an' then walkin' out
wiih me an' ther goin' through me!
Eh? Huh! Well, I guess ye'd 'a' work
d It if it hadn't been for Rickets, bless
'is little heart! .I didn't tumble to yer
skin game. an' l'd 'a' swallowed yer
dope, but Rickets ain't no such fool!
One taste of them knockout drops was
enough fer 'im."
But Scratches had regained his nerve
and now burst forth in protestations.
"It's a lie! There ain't no knockout
drops In that whisky of yers. I swear
'-Be ye sure?" questioned Bunts sar
"It's gospel truth I'm tellin' ye."
"Well," Bunts retorted, "I'll believe
the dawg quicker 'a I'll believe any
ugly faced horse thief sech as ye be.
But I'll give ye a chance to prove yer
words, blast ye! Take yer right 'and
dcwn slow to this glass of mine an',
Then as Scratches made no move
mnt to obey be exclaimed sharply:
'Do as I Fay or i'll put a bullet
through ye! Drink that whisky, an' if
ye spill a drop I'll bore ye. Hurry!"
Scratches' face grew white, but he
hd no choice. Slowly he lowered one
hand; mere slowly still he raised the
glass to his lips. There once again he
hesitated until Biunts' dommand came
At one gulp Scratepes swallowed the
"Now let me go," he said meekly.
"Te see it ain't hurt me none."
"Ye jist sit right these an' keep yer
'ands up, an' that other sneakin' little
cherub too. Why, gents," he contin
u3d to the crowd, "it was that there
brat chucked the drops in my whisky.
Ee'll be a nice one when he gets 'Is
gowth, I don't think! But now we'll
jist watch that there hyena that drunk
what my hairless pup turned up 'Is
There was silence. The crowd had
drawn close, waiting expectant for the
issue. Scratches sat motionless, his
hands aloft, blinking at the revolver.
Little by little his eyes blinked oftener
and the lids lay shut longer. A sudden
trembling seized the man, and his arms
shook like aspens. A few seconds more
and the wretched creature began sway
ing in his place. To and fro he swung
dizzily; then at last his form collapsed.
~e fell heavily to the floor and lay
there inert, unconscious.
A hum of approval greeted the event
Rickets barked joyfully. Bunts ad
dressed the Kid:
"Now, ye miser'ble infant, ye c'n
drag ot! that pardner of yers! Jist
drag 'im outside, an' be quick about It.
Ye'll be hanged some day, all right.
Drag 'im out He'll come round some
time, I s'pose-WOrse luck!"
When the Kid, unassisted, had drag
ged his companion across the saloon
and out of the door, Bunts again ad
lressd the crowd:
"Strikes me ye're got some curi's
characters in yer village. But Rickets
usu'ly comes out on top In a dawgfight,
'specially with me to back 'im. An'
aow name yer pizen, gents."

Do not always receive the sympathy and attention which
they deserve. Their ailments are regarded as purely
imaginary, or natural and unavoidable at their time of -
life. Disease and infirmity should not always be associ
ated with old age. The eye of the gray haired grandsire
may be as bright and the complexion as fair as any of
his younger and more vigorous companions.
Good Blood Is the secet of healfthy old age, for it regulates
and controls every part of the body, strengthens the nerves, makes the
muscles elastic and supple, the bones strong and the flesh firm; but when
this life fluid is polluted or poisoned and loses its nutritive, health sustain- -
ing elements, then there is a rapid decline of the vital powers, resulting
in premature old age and disease. Any derangement of the blood quickly
shows itself in an ulcer, sore, wart, tumor or some other troubiesome
growth upon the body, and rheumatic and neuralgic pains become almost
constant, accompanied with poor digestion and cold extremities.
S. S. S. being purely vegetable, is the safest and
best blood purifier for old people. It does not shockl
or hurt the system like the strong mineral remedies,
but gently and thoroughly cleanses the blood and
stimulates the debilitated organs, when all bodily
ailments disappear. S. S. S. is just such a tonic as old people need to
improve a weak digestion and tone up the Stomach. If there is any heredi
tary taint, or the remains of some disease contracted in early life, S. S. S.
will search it out and remove every vestige of it from the system.
