A LITTLE WHILE.
t Is so natural that we fall asleep
Like tired children when the day Is
That I would question why the living
When death has kissed the laughing
lips of one.
We do not sigh when golden skies have
The purple shadows and the gray of
Because we know the morning lies
And we must wait a little while for
So when, grown weary with the care
Our loved ones find in sleep the peace
We should not weep, but learn to count
A prelude to the one beyond the grave;
And thus be happy for them, not dis
But lift our hearts with love to God,
And we, anon, like tired ones will rest,
If we will hope and wait-a little

'A pretty cove making in from the
ocean, a strip of white sand, and some n
tall, gray cliffs for a background; antid
such a bright, breezy morning! The
cool waves leaped joyously in the June
sunshine, and caught a thousand glit- t
tering rays in the golden light.
Kennedy was just pushing off for
the yacht, as Beatrice Grant, accom
panhid by her friend, Miss Lizzie Ful
ton, came down to the pier.
Kennedy was the new skipper. The
last one, Dawson, had been discharged
for drunkenness, and this man put in
his place. ,
Kennedy was dark and handsome, of t
tnuagnllceent build, and had a decidedly e
plhturesque look, In his red shirt and it
white straw hat.
Beatrice, who was quite an artist,
looked at him applrovingly with her
great, calm. innocent eyes, as, seeing I
that she wished to speak with himn, he
brought his boat about, and stepped
out upon the pier.

nedy, with an answering smile, which h
held an underlook of tenderness, as
his gaze rested upon the girl's fair face.
"Very well," she returned, in caul
unconsciousness that the handsome
skipper had presumed to admire her. f
She turned away, and as she did so,
a darned gray silk glove fell upon the

Kennedy was standing quietly, with
folded arms, looking after her. tv
"Kennedy," with a sort of cold state- di
liness, "did you pick up my glove?"
"Your glove, Miss Beatrice?" he hi
said, imperturbably. "Oh no!" su
And then, as the young ladies moved ,
on, he threw himself once more Into
the boat, and pulled swiftly for the as
Spray, riding gracefully at anchor tr.
just off the shore. wl
Once on the deck of the dainty yacht, "y
he drew from an Inner pocket oi his a

his strong brown palm, tenderness and
amusement both struggling in the hiat
smile which crept Jnto his hazel eyes. in

Skirts that fit snugly at the upper

make a marked feature of autumn
styles. The circular model lends it

all wide materials. Indications point
to many striped materials for fall and

folds formed are graceful, and the
flare provided means abundant free

is used, a good effect is obtained by
making a seam at the centre front,
the pattern being laid on the bias edge
of the material in place of on the

be carefully matched, but when that is

S Michael W. Regaa,who was killed in

rer best known locomotive engineers in

al. generation, and always enjoyed the
otr confidence of the officials of the line
nd as a man Who could make the time
in and do careful, conscientious Work.
Regan began railroading as a fireman
in 1863 on the State line work train of
the old Buffalo & State Line road, af
n terward extended to Erie, and callel
Im the Buffalo & Erie. and finally merged
Ie into the Lake Shore & Michigan
Southern. In 1866 he got his step and
took the throttle of a switch engine at
Dunkirk. The next year he ran the
work train at Silver Creek, and on
e July 1, 1869, he went on the road as a
he freight engineer. In 1880 he was pro
moted to a passenger run, and up to
his untimely end piloted the passenger
le trains of the Lake Shore in winter and
summer. Regan came from a family
h of engineers. His brother, Thomas
Regan, has the opposite run on the
companion train. His brother, James
Regan, who died a short time ago,
was an engineer on the Lake Shore,
r and another brother, Edward Regan,
is an engineer o the Lehigh Valley.
His son, Francis Regan, is an engineer
on the Lake Shore, and his two broth
ers-in-law also run on the same road.
In Regan's career of thirty-four years
as a locomotive engineer he had but
three accidents, and none was the re
sult of his fault or negligence. He had
the reputation of making uniformly
good runs, and the train he was taking
out when killed is one of the fastest

New York correspondence Pittsburg
Post: In an up-town side street a tall
building is approaching completion and
will be the first to exhibit a peculiarity *
of construction which has often been r
urged here as the best means of miti
gating the skyscraper's ugliness. This w
new building towers above its neigh
bors, and under ordinary circum- na
stances yards of unadorned brick
would face the spectator. But the
owner and architects have adopted the
plan imposed by law in Paris and have
decorated the sides of the building. b.
This ornamentation, which is simple
and tasteful, conforms in style to the 1
principal facades of the building, al
though not nearly so elaborate. If all
the New York's towering buildings liad
been treated in the same fashion, ob- p
Jection to the skyscraper would be less
pronounced than it is today.

Ran Away Backward.
A singular accident occurred In the
Frisco yards, near Joplin, Mo., recently.
Engine No. 126, running extra, left
town upon the Girard pasenger train's
time. The trains met on a curve on
the edge of town. Both engineers ap
plied the air brakes and reversed their
engines, also giving a full head of
steam to mitigate the collision. The en
gineer, fireman and trainmen of the ex
tra engine jumped for their lives. The
engines colided, but with only enough
force to crush the cow-catchers. Hav
ing a full head of steam and being re- -
versed, the extra engine, with no one
aboard, rebounded, and at a terrific
speed began backing out of town. It
passed through East Joplin going at a
rate estimated at a mile a minute. The
dispatcher was promptly notified, and
1ii trains in its direction were held to
prevent another collision. Searcher
found the engine two miles from town
on a hill, with the steam and water ex
hausted, but with no apparent damage
from Its wild run

':I do not feel very well, I am so
tired all the time. I do not know what
is the matter with me."
You hear these words every day; as
often as you meet your friends just so
often are these words repeated. More
than likely you speak the same signifi
cant words yourself, and no doubt you
do feel far from well most of the time.
Mrs. Ella Rice, of Chelsea, Wis.,
whose portrait we publish, writes that
she suffered for two years with bear
ing-down pains, headache, backache,
and had all kinds of miserable feelings,
all of which was caused by falling and
inflammation of the womb, and after
doctoring with physicians and numer
ous medicines she was entirely cured by
