WHERE BABY WENT
Mistake of Farmer's Wife Who
Bear Was Hasbaad.
Afton, Va., Feb. . Mra. James
Ingram, wife of a younp farmer, lost
her infant in a fearful manner a few
days ago. It was agreed that her
husband should meet her at a fence
near a small body of woods, take
their child and accompany her to the
home of a neighbor, where there was
to be a dance.- When tEe young
woman reached the fence she saw a
figure dimly outlined on thejjother
fide. Believing it to be her husband
she handed thechild over as
she climbed the lower panel.
""To her amazement the figure dis
appeared without a word, taking the
baby with it. Frantic with fear, ehe
called her husband, whom she met
comingjtowardjthe fence. The
alarm was given and a search made,
but nothing could be found except
the tracks towards the mountains.
There is no doubt but that the bear
dcroured the ehild.

Hi.. uoer a statesman it unable to
(jf'tt nd a thing which ha wants U
have done lie usually hides behind
the plea that it is That
the readers of the Commoner may be
able to answerjjthisjdestisy argument
the following uotation is pivon from
the "Last of the Barons," by Bulwer7
William of Hastings is described as
laying his sins at the door of destiny,
and the author makos this comment.
"It is destiny' phrase of the weak
human heart' It is destiny'! Dark-apology
for every error!. The strong
and virtuous admit no dostiny) On
earth guides conseienee in heaven,
watehes God. And destiny is bat
the phantom we invoke to silence the
one, to dethrone the other!"
Each man's destiny ie ia his own
hands so far as his moral progress is
ooncorncd. If a man ig going to be
a thief, circumstances may determine
whether it is his destiny to oeoape
punishment or to be caught, but the
man dccidos for himself the all important
question whether he will be
a thief. And so circumstances may
determine how much profit or how
little profit a country can find in a
policy of imperialism, but the
itself must decide the people or
those whom the people permit to
speak for them what the policy of
the country will be Destiny is indeed
the dark apology for many national
errors. The Commoner.

The late Capt. S. $. Brown, noted
horsemao and ooal operator, was

while the famous Astoria Cup, won
by Capt. Brown's racing stable is
valued at only $f0. The oup and
libraries were beqneathed to Miss
Lewis, who has since married a man
named Porter, one of Capt. Brown's
betting commissioners. Miss Lewis
also inherited thirty bonds of the
Pittsburge Browing Company, for
accepting whieh she was forced to
resign as a Sabbath-School teaoher in
the Mary S. Brown Memorial chapel.
These bonds are valued by the executors
at $33,900. outy share?

stock in the Lexington track has been

who also continues the racing stable
of his deceased brother.

Capt. Brown took many hunting (rips
