Pepita was a Mexican girl livinig
with an aunt In southern California.
hi Pepita was an orphan and had inher
I. Ited a patch of ground, on which the
o two lived. Near by was another Mex
i c lean family consisting of father, nmthl
er and one son, Enrique, just coming
. of age. Enrique and Pepita, being
neighbors and there being no other
young men and women near by to di
r- vert them from each other, naturally

though roughly dressed. gave evidence
of being a gentleman. Seeing Pepita
standing looking at him curiously, he
went over to where she was and ask
ed for a drink of water. Pepita got
it for hint from a spring hack of the
house, and the stranger c(hatted with
r her. She asked him what he was dig
.ging the hole for, and he s5aid he was
prospecting. There had been no hunt
ing for the precious metals there be
fore, and I'eplta did nit understand
ii what he meant.
"' The stranger camne over occ'a<ionally

Sborrow something. lie said his name

the son of a gentleman in the east.
lie hadn't got on well with his father
r an had cone out west to shift for
himself. Pepita thought him very
nil fine. After hooking at his white face
Enrique's brown visage was not at all
attractive. Enrique noticed a change
r in her, but was at a loss to account
} for it.
- One day a man came to Burkhalter's
' hole. He was a well dressed man and
wore a diamond stickpin in his neck
h wear. Pepita saw him and Burk
ir. halter standing together talking and
Ih looking over at her house. The stran
ger went away. and that evening V
Burkhalter came over to see Pepita.
She asked him about the man who had
rd visited him. but Burkhalter was un
ie communicative on the subject. One
tt thing Pepita noticed-that he was very
ý. attentive and deferential to her.
Burkhalter during the next four or
iive days did as much courting as is
usually done in months, sometimes in
years. He quite carried Pepita off her
- feet. She discovered that Enrique
II knew nothing at all about making love.
to Enrique was much distressed. What
: could he do? But Enrique had more
a sense than Pepita and knew a little
a more about the world, though not
, much more. At any rate, he had sense
enough to suspect that Burkhalter had
ir some motive in devoting himself to
Pepita. He went to an old rancher
who had always been kind to him and
t told him his trouble. One day Enrique
e went to Grigsby, the rancher, and told
him that Burkhalter had asked Pepita
. to marry him.
"That's all talk," said Grigsby. c
"No, no." cried Enrique; "they are s
r to be married tomorrow. Pepita does
y not wish it so soon, but the man in
slats. She would like to raise a little
money so that she may get some new
clothes to make her appear worthy of
so fine a husband."
i Grlgsby thought. He was turning
something over in hls mind. At last
I he said:
f "If Pepita is going to be married eR
- she will not need her farm. What she
r needs is a little cash. I will buy her
r property. Go and ask her for what
she will sell it But ay to her that
SI will not buy It unless she keepm my i
offer a secret You may tell her I
- will give her $00."
SEnrlque sorrowafully bore the mes
sage and returned with Pepita, who
was delighted to get so much money
for what ws really not supposed to pi
be worth more than halt the mount co
ofered. Origpby drew up the Ipap I
conveying the property to Enriquo
and placed a mortgage on it payable
"Now," he said to Pepita, "you mayth

se his fiancee and asked her if she
would be ready for the wedding the
nezt day. Pepita said bshe would andI a
gleeftlly told him bshe had sold her
property for the enormous sum of
$600. Then she showed him the money
she had got for it.
He stood lookLtng at her with a blank
exapremon for some time, then told d
her to put her name on the bek of the of
cheek and he would ride to a town
ten miles distant and draw the moey.
She must he ready for the ceresamy

he bade her, and, laving her, forgt-

Pepita waited all that day and the
next for her lover, but he eswme not .
Nor has he come to this dasy. Pepita's tot
aunt at last told her that he must
have gone away with the money for
the ftrm. What should they do? Their att
home was sold, and they had nowhere
to lay their heads.
Meanwhile Grigsby had gone to the
hole Burklhalter had left with experts to
and had found that Burkhalter had a
struck a vein of ore too narrow to pay, w
but beginning to open up in the farm t
Pepita had sold.
Then came Enrlique and showed her
his deed to her property and told her
that It was likely worth a fortune. .
And so it was. Grlgsby furniashed the
means to develop It. and it was sold gg
for a large amount. Enrlque forgave el

How a Great Surgeon Died.
While Bichat. the famous surgeon.
was dying of typhoid fever he turned
to an old colleague who was sitting
beside his bed and said to him:
"My friend. I am lost, but it is some
consolation to know that my case is
very curious. During the last few
days I have noticed some odd symp
toms, and I am studying them care

"and if it were not for one thing I
would be quite willing to die."
"What is that?" asked the friend.
"I am exceedingly sorry," answered
Bichat. "that I shall not have an op
portunity to perform an autopsy on
myself after my death, for I know
that I would make some wonderful

When the World Was Drunk.
Nowhere in all the world today can
be found as many confirmed drunk
ards as there were among the Thra
clans, the Iberians. the Celts or the
Scythians. The man who didn't get
drunk every day or two was regarded
as queer. The Greeks were moderate
drinkers until they began to copy the
luxury of the Persian feasts. The Ro
mans imitated the Greeks. Then the
whole world went on a mad drunk. It
was a saturnalia. Caligula owes his
niche in the hall of fame to the drunk
en banquets with which he made even
Rome marvel. The excesses made
fashionable by such potentates as Lu
cullus. Nero. Verres. Tiberius. Calign

Shekels and Half Shekels.
The early Biblical references to
pieces of silver do not in the original
convey the Idea of coins, but of
weights, shekels. The Mosaic "obla
tion to God" was a half shekel, and
the shekel is explained by Josephus
as equal to four Athenian drachmae of
the value of about 55' cents in Amerl
can money. The first Jewish coinage
under authority was, it is believed,
struck by Simon, the blaccabee, about
the year 140 B. C. It consisted of
shekels and half shekels. This coin
age had its value signified upon it.
