TTtic daughters of nil good families
In India must be innrrlcd. It would
to a public disgrace as well as a crime
against the Hindoo religion for an lu
dlan family of good rank to keep a
daughter unmarried. Since it Is diffi
cult for their parents to (Ind husbands
Tor them the daughters arc made
away with. Those of high birth,
called rajpoots, arc put to death ,by
tneu especially employed to do so. Tho
British government having passed
laws ngalnst these murders, the par
ents of those girls who huvo not found
busbands have resorted to a method
of marrying them In name, though
not In fact Thero are u number of
Brahmans, old nnd dccrcpld, called
Kullau Drahmons. who go about with
tho object of hiring themselves out to
go through the ceremony of the "sev
en steps" with young girls upon being
paid for doing so. After marriage they
leave the country nnd never see their
young wives aguln.
In Allahabad thero lived one of
these rajpoot men who. bad u daughter
over twelve years old.
In the nest house lived nnotber fnm
lly, Iu which there was one &oii. nged
eighteen. The two children had been
brought up together, and their child
Ish friendship had grown Into love
The parents of the jouth were very
proud of him nnd destined htm to
marry some girl who uhoul.l be not
only of high caste, but whoso par
ents would bo nble to bestow on her
Ouo evening after It was dark ho
wns walking in the compound (gar
den) about his futhor's house when he
Iicard a low call from tho compound
of llio next bouse, doing to the feme,
tic descried the crouching figure of bis
"sweetheart, evidently suffering from
fiomo great misfortune.
"What Is It, dear girl?" bo said,
springing over tho fence nnd taking
tier Iu his arms.
"I nin to dlo." i
, "To diet"
' "Yes. Today n man a horrible
looking man cntno to tho houso nnd
talked with my father. I bad been
told to go on an errand, doubtless that
1 Bhould be nway at tho tlmo nnd not
tiear what passed between my father
and this man. Hut 1 had not yet gone.
I have been suspecting that, not lining
married, I would soon bo mado away
with In some fashion, though father
nnd mother have tried to keep the
awful knowledge from me. Bo when
I snw this frightful creature come to
the house 1 concealed injself behind u
bamboo screen and heard every word."
Sho gavo way to her feeling nnd
wns tumble to proceed. Her lover
kissed her ugnln uud again, bogging
Tier to tell him nil.
"My father bargained with tho man
for n hundred rupees to strangle me."
"Tomorrow night father is to tnko
mo out for n walk by tho river, when
this man Is to come upon us suddenly
ou If to rob, seize mu and after ho has
killed mo throw my body Into tho
The agony of tho youth was equal
to that of the girl. Both knew that
their (separation and her death were
sot to be prevented. It would bo of
no iivoll for her to refuse to go to walk
With her father or to try In any way
to escape her fate. The young man
dare not disobey tho commands of
kin parents, Should he lly with the
girl tho sleuths of the Indian police
"would follow mid Kiirvlynptuic them,
They spout what tlmo that remained
for them together, not laying plans to
prevent the calamity, but weeping In
each other's arms. At Inst the girl
lieaid her mother calling her, and aft
er one clinging embrace she ran into
Tho next afternoon an old man lean
ing heavily on his staff stopped at llio
liouso nnd nskod for a bit of bread and
u little Mine. The girl, who wiih to die
that night knowing the secret, though
bcr parents were nut aware that ulio
knew Ii went to the cupboard by her
father's order uud brought tho refresh
ment. "Is your daughter married?" ubIuM
"No." replied her father. "Wo have
no husband for her."
"Hut you cannot keep n girl like that
longer. Our religion foiblds."
"No." whlwpeied tho father; "wo
(ilmll not keep her longer."
The look that accompanied tho words
wan not lost on the old man.
"How much will you glvu mo to mar
"You nro n Kullau?"
"1 vlll gladly give you your prlco if
It bo not too much."
"What say you to n hundred ru
pees?" "I will give It gladly."
Tho girl was listening, and hope
cpraug up In her heart. She loitered
near till she brw her father count out
tho money to tho old man nnd then
When sho enmo to herself sho was
told that she was to be married to the
Tlsltor. Death, which had been so
near, seemed worse to her than living
in Hoparatlon from her lover, nnd she
Slndly went with her father and the
old man that the ceremony should he
performed. After It was ended the
liusuniid went nway, and It wan uu
4crtoQit that he was never to return.
From that day the young lover wan
missed. Loin; after Ills love received
from him the nieuns to take her to

Millersburg, O., Fob. 14 An event
that very seldom occurs with married
couples has Just taken place here, and
this was tho celebrating of tho GGth
wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs.
Jacob Chorryholmcs, of this place.
Mr. Chcrryholmos Is nearly 00 yeai-3
of ngo and his wito live years young
er, and they wero married February
8, 1814, and havo always resided In
Mlllorsburg, whoro Mr. Chorryholmcs
was ongaged In active business from
early in tho forties up until old age
forbado him tho work Incident to ac
tive business life. .
In speaking of his life, Mr. Chorry
holmcs said ho camo hero in 1842, on
horseback and that when ho married
In 1844 thoy mado no wedding trip,
for two reasons; ono was a "lack of
funds" nnd tho other was "bad roads,"'
which prevented wnlklng. Mr. Cher
ryholmcs Ib nn ardont Democrat and
cast his first voto for Polk In 1844.
Ho sorved two terms as county
treasurer and wns appointed a trus
tee of tho Deaf and Dumb school by
Governor Iloadly and reappointed by
Governor Foster. Both nro actlvo for
people of their years. When thoy

"Jack rabbits In Kansas arc just ns
numerous us they wero the day the
tlrst covered wagon moved across It
toward the Uocky mountains," said a
Kansas farmer. "It appears to me
they tire galloping around in greater
numbers than ever. Did you ever try
to exterminate a Jack rabbit? If you
never did you've something to learn
"A Jack rabblt'H movement starts
with a spring In the air. He lauds
on all fours, and the Intervening bpnee
trom the time he Jumps and 10c time
he lights Is Just about nothing, but tie
covers from ten lo llfleen feet with
every Jump. There's only one wny to
take 'em alive and that Is to leave the
top off a pasture well overnight. Next
morning there'll he plenty, because
Jack rabbltf will Jump Into any kind
of u hole unit's op'. Thoy seem to
havo a fondness fur dried out wells
They outrun the average dog with
ease, but can't beat the greyhound
Shooting them on the run is. as dllll
cult as shooting birds on the wing,
possibly more dlfllcult. Possibly J.'i.UUO
tire killed iu Kansas every year, and
yet they seem Just as numerous us
ever." St, Paul Dispatch.

Dr. Johnson had some ideas on edu

known ns "learning a pleeu by heart."
Ono day Mrs. Oastrel set a little gtrl
to repeat to him Cuto's soliloquy,
which she went through very correct
ly. Tho doctor, after a pnitfce. asked
tho child, "What was to bring Cato
to au end?" She wild It was a knlfo.
"No, my dear. It wus uot so." "My
Aunt Polly said It was a knlfo."
"Why, Aunt Polly's knlfo may do. but
It was a dagger, my dear." He then
nsked her tho meanlug of "bane" and
"antidote." which she was unnblo to
give. Mrs. Gabtrel said, "You cannot
expect so young a child to know the
meaning of such words." He then
snld, "My dear, how mauy peueo ure
