Mrs. Walter Collins have returned from
Altarado where they attended the
fusisral of Mrs. Collins' mother, who
was injured in a runaway in Waco lest
week sad died from the effects at it. -
A quaint old hernlit, known as "Eng
fish Jack," has lived for many years in a
little house 'which he calls "The House
That Jack Built," In the White hills,
near Portland, Me. He has been in turn
huster, guide, fisherman and seller of
Indisn curiosities and holds aloof free
the toll and turmoil of life. He loves
most to look at the hills and the sky and
while silently smoking think of the won
der and beauty of nature. "He clings."
says the Portland Telegram, "with child
like consfdeace to the infinite goodness
and knows no fear.
"Once a minister was talking with him
seersning religious thlas happesel
a thwtie AheoM be there is
the mountains alone. 'With 7 asked
Jack, with surprise.
"Summed up in a few words, the creed
et the old man Is: 'I want to be honedt.
.1 want to help every one I can. I must
not kill any beast, flih or bird unless I
.iced food. I must think no wrong of
anybody. and I must envy nobody. I
must use the men about me as I want to
he used. Having done all this, I want to
be still and not trouble myself about the
future.' It is, as Dean Stanley said of
that et Charles Dickeas, 'a simple but all
suSeiest creed.' Lit Jives up to it."

the "bark" from the palm of the hand
might easily be mistaken at first glance
for one-l.alf of a glove, as the fingers and

MAoreover, the thick, callouslike skin re
tains the mysterious lines of the hand of
which palnaists make so much.
In this connection there is in the Bus

the entire theory of palmistry, being evi
