The Daily Short Story
Tom "Keniper was' the ouly scholar
who bad the distinction of being nd
dressed by the principal ait mister. Be
tween the two there wan a formality,
which puzzled the school. Sometimes
when awaiting recitation in one of
those hours when every scholar was
Intent at his looks and even the drone
was at work I naw the principal gaze
at Tom Kemper as a inau will look at
Bomelhing which he cannot fathom.
In those days a person with red hair
usually had the same sort of consid
eration that one bestows mou a'liow
der mill. In Tout Kemper's case ther
was this consideration perhaps fear is
a better word and yet 110 one at school
ever suffered from Torn Kemper's sup
posed storehouse of passion.
One morning after the principal had
called the roil and repented the Lord's
Prayer he said he' wanted the atten
tion of the school before the first reci
tation. The nil't lwfore, he said, he
had occasion to he down town later
than usual, and on hi return he Mop
ped ia the schoolroom of the academy.
It was dark. He met a man who fra p
plcd with him. and the two had a
stru-TKle. The unknown man wore a
visor. In the bout this was torn aside.
As the unknown man Jumped from a
window the principal aw his face in
the light cast from a street lamp.
It has been many years since the In
cident, but I recall some of the words
of the principal.
I do not care to mention bis name,"
he said. "I wish I had not followed
him as he went to the window. After
he was gone I lighted my lamp and
found that my desk had leen rifled.
Nothing was gone, but nil was con
fusion. The man who did this, the one
whom I met last night in this room. Is
here this morning at his desk. I shall
not mention his name, but he must
know that his further presence here
will le obnoxious. The first cluss In

It. As the class went Into recitation
Tom Kemper, with bis books In a
strap, passed out, holding his high hat
gracefully before him as ho walked
down the aisle.
None of us knew at the time wbat it
meant. None knew why the incident
was hushed so quickly. But Tom
Kemper did not suffer In the estima
tion of the community.
Has It ever occurred to you that
war Is not the hell which a Union gen
eral said It was; that but for a war
now aud then, and especially a civil
war, there would be more crime?
Our civil war afforded thousands an
opiortunlty to end feuds which would
have ended eventually, it is true, but
lu a way that would have shattered
society and wrecked confidence. For
such as have fends war is not hell.
Tom Kemper was a soldier In the
civil war. Ho wore the gray. Possi
bly he would have gone anyway, but
be did not enlist until a brother of the
principal of the school bad enlisted in
the I'nlon army. Probably each fought
for his cause, but the war was us"ed
by both as a cover to end a personal
feud. Neither, of course, had any
control over the movenier.t of his regi
ment, but both met in several engage
ments once face to face. It was at
Shiloh. After the meeting both were
carried to the rear. Neither died.
They met again In the closing days of
the war In what is known as tun
"march to the sea." During the second
hand to (haud tight Tom Kemper was
captured. The next day his antagonist
called upon him at the guardhouse.
The hatred of each was unrelenting.
It was ngreod that the Union soldier,'
then a captain, was to secure the re
lease of Tom Kemper and that they
were to settle the old feud by the code
a fight to the death. This arrange
ment, however, was frustrated at the

Some years ago I saw the old prin
cipal waiting for his roll call and he
told me that his brother and Tom
Kemper were rivals for the love of a
girl whom I knew in the 6chool days
mentioned. The principal's brother
was the successful man. In winning
the girl the brother came lu possession
of Tom Kemper's love letters aud had
placed them In the desk of the prin

schoolroom of the academy was to get
these letters. The brother of the prin

AN ATHLETIC MILLIONAIRE.
Exploit of Ei-CoTfrnor IIOKflT, Who
lias Struck Oil lu Tessa.
The striking of oil on the Texas
lands, which lias made a millionaire of
ex-Governor Hogg, would not surprise
some of the friends or his youth If the
6trlklng bad been done by the gigantic
Texan's own bands, says Harper's
Weekly. Uls feats of strength were
scarcely excelled by those of Dan Rice
himself when that athlete gave the first
public exhibition In Europe of what
Young America could do In the way of
lifting hogsheads, heaving pig Iron and
withstanding pressures supposed to be
sufficient to kill any ordinary person.
Of young Hogg It was told that he
duplicated the exploit of the south's
famous giant at the beginning of the
last century, Peter Francisco of Buck
ingham county, Va., who threw an an
gry bull, according to tradition, over a
nine rail fence aud made blm angrier
than ever. As a newcomer among
American millionaires Mr. Hogg will
find few physical equals. Most of those
who make big fortunes are small men.
Preparation For Snminer.
This year there have beeu planted
1.200 acres of cantaloupes in Pecos val
ley. New Mexico, with an estimated
yield of something less than one car
load to the acre, says the Dallas Demo
crat. Chicago will be the market, and
the minimum price per carload is $300.
The Outlook For Sport.
The coming summer may be long re
membered as a season famous for its
sports. Cycling, automobiling, golfing,
yachting, canoeing, horse racing, base
ball playing and every other kind of
game and pastime promise to be very
much in evidence during the season.
It looks as if the uext few months,
says the Boston nerald, are going to
be well worth living.

M 4D! Memi
r S. S. S. has been
before the public
for many years;
from a 6mall begin
ning, it has steadily
. worked its way to
the front, and is now known in every city, town and hamlet in the country. Its
6taunchest friends are those who have known it longest and have witnessed its
, wonderful curative powers ia their own families or among their friends end
acquaintances. Grateful patients in all parts of the country tell of their restoration
to health and happiness, and the testimony of these is the highest evidence of the
medicine's worth. S. S. S. is more popular today than ever in its history no "
other remedy stands so high, has ever given such perfect satisfaction or is so
reliable in the cure of Cancer, Rheumatism, Catarrh, Contagious Blood Poison,
Scrofula, Eczema, Psoriasis, Salt Rheum, Acne, or any disease that originates in
the blood. Being strictly a vegetable preparation, you will find it agrees with you
much better than a drug store concoction or any of the widely advertised potash
and mercury remedies, which affect the bones, muscles and stomach, causing
, . Rheumatism or Dvspepsia. If you
UOn't Experiment have never tried S. S. S., you will be
surprised at the immediate good effects,
MO tie Sm w for no sooner does it get into the circulation than the,
appetite increases ; you grow stronger, and gradually
but surely it drives out the poisons and restores the blood to a healthy condition.
If there is a sore or ulcer on the body, it begins to heal around the edges, the dis
charge finally ceases and the place gets well ; muscular and bone pains vanish, and
the skin is rtlieved of ail itching, irritating eruptions. Nervous, run down and
anaeniic people will find S. S. is. just the medicine they need, for blood poverty
and illy nourished nerves are responsible for their condition. For old people and
children S. S. S. has no equal ; being free from all minerals, it does not nauseate
or have any injurious effect whatever, and keeps the blood in good condition, thus
fortifying against disease. Experience teaches what is good and what is not good ;
this applies particularly to medicine, and S. S. S., a remedy that has retained the
confidence of the people for nearly 50 years, must have merit it CURES, is the
secret ot its success. V hen you call tor S. 5. S.
don't be persuaded to accept something else
' there is no substitute for S. S. S. It is the only
guaranteed purely vegetable blood purifier, and
the safest and best for all blood and skin
troubles. Do not let them force an inferior
mineral remedy on you because there is a larger
profit in it. If vou have any blood or skin dis
ease, don't hesitate to write us about it; our physicians will carefully consider
your case and advise you without charge. Book on Blood and Skin Diseases free.
