How m. n fi - lion Plot Hatrkrd at
Hogota Was BlorUrd.
Francis II. Iiomis. assistant swr
tary of state, who defended America's
l-oliey on the isthmus at the recent ban
quet of the ouill club in New York,
made the startling statement that the
recognition of the Panama republic
KANC1H U. IIOUIS.
headed off a plot that was hatched at
Bogota to seize the canal concessions.
Mr. I-oomis stated that certain men
in Hogota wished to hare the canal
matter postoued a year, when the re
newal of the concession of the French
company would have been refused with
the purpose of its confiscation and sale
to the I'nited States. Had this plan
Kiicceeded it would in all probability
have resulted in the occupation of the
tothmtiH by French troops.

DAILY SHORT STORY
His Share of Prize Money.
Captain I'enly lowered his glass.
"She's a derelict." he said. "Get out a
toat. Mr. Applegate."
"Aye. aye, sir."
A loat was lowered. The captain
took couiuiand of her himself and was
polled to the derelict. Meanwhile she
had svvuuy round so that as he ap
proached he could see her uame.
"The Kangaroo!" he exelaiined. open
ing his eyes very wide. "CJive way
In a few minutes the boat was along
fcide the Kangaroo, a rope was caught
on the gunwale, and Captain I'enly
climlted aboard, followed by several of
his men. They searched the ship from
stem to stern, but found no living
thing. She was loaded with lumber,
which kept her afloat. Her foremast
had fallen and had been cut away. It
was plain that she had been deserted in
or after a torui.
"There's prize money here, my lads."
said the captain, "a snug sum for every
one of you."
Leaving a -few meu. he returned to
Lis ship, ami in due time the Kangaroo
was taken In tow. the Esperance pro
ceeding on her way to Newport, not a
hundred miles distant.
The next morning at dawn the cap
tain was called on deck. Laud was in
fight, and ouie miles ahead a boat load
of men were pulling slow ly toward it.
As soon as they discovered the Espe
rauce they Mopped rowing, and within
half an hour Captain I'enly hailed
"Who are you?" he asked.
All oldish man stood tip in the stern
and replied: "The crew of the Kanga

day before yesterday, which increased
to a hurricane, leaving our ship hi a

slow and reluctant.
"(Jood morning. Captain Lane," said
"Who are you. sir?" said the other,
getting out a pair of glasses.
"I'm Frank I'enly, at your service."
There was a chopfallen look about
Captain Liine that contrasted sharply
with the confident air of I'enly. I'enly
was one of the youngest captains in
the merchant service, being but twenty
six the day he took command of the
Esperance. He hail lived in his moth

family, and had grown up with Lane's

tinued I'enly. "I've got your ship in
"So I sec." replied the other, endeav
oring to look pleased, but it is very
hard for a man to look pleased who has
deserted his ship and found that ship
following him into port. It puts him in
an uupleasant position.
"Well, you'd belter pull in. and we'll
take you aboard." said I'enly.
As soon as the wrecked mariners
were aboard the Esperance, Captain
I'enly took Captain Lane to his cabin.
When they were last together Lane had
ordered the man who had picked up his
ship and himself to leave his house.
Now Lane waited for the younger man
to speak. I'enly began in a tone and
with an air of one who rememliered
"Captain, we must hit upon some
plan." he said, "to enable you to sail
your ship into port without the knowl
dge of your having left her coming to
"I don't see how it can be done." said
the other moodily.
"It can only be done by satisfying
onr men as to prize money. Fortunate
ly I have something to my credit In
"I have enough to attend to that."
"I'll fliTiire tip what my men would
be entitled to."
"Hut your own share?"
"Never mind that."
Within two hours Captain Lane and
his crew were aboaid the Kangaroo,
moving under what sails were left on
her into Newport harlior. Every man
on her was pledged to secrecy and a
handsome present promised. Those on
the Kanearoo had made a like pledge
without comiMMisation to the young
captain, whom they adored, though they
were to get their prize money. The
Esperance entered the harlior and re
portinl that she had spoken the Kanga
roo within sight of land coming in dis
abled. The Esperance went on to Prov
idence. The Kangaroo when she came
put in at Fall Kiver.
Thi- ni.uht of their arrival I'enly went
to Hristol to gr.i-t his mother, and Lane
went there to see his family. In the
evening a message e.-itue to I'enly invit
ing him to the Lam- residence. Caji
t.iin Lane rece'ved him in a room in
which no on else vrns present. He
gave his reasons for abandoning his
vessel, which were hot bad. but in view
of the vessel having lieen found all
right they would not lie nci-eptable.
"And now." continued Lane. "I have

The gorilla has not only a crouching
habit, but he walks on all four of his
legs and has the motion of most quad
rupeds, using his right arm and left
leg at the same time, and alternates
with the loft arm and right leg. It is
not exactly a walk or a trot, but a
kind of ambling j;ait, while the chim
panzee uses his arms as crutches, but
lifts one foot from the ground a little
in advance of the other. lie does not
place the palm of the hand on the

It is a fact that quite a large percent
age of children born into this world are
so unfortunate as to come of parents
whose physical condition is such that
the child gets but a poor start in life,
and the result is that as the days and
weeks pass by the poor little one does
not seem to grow in weight or strength,
but remains through no fault of its own
weak, debilitated and peevish, and cries
the greater part of the time, thereby
giving misery and anxiety to its parents
and comfort to no one.
Struggle as they may the parents find
themselves unable to do more than keep
life in the child, and in their despera
tion they are willing to try any remedy
or food which may be suggested to them
by their neighbors or friends.
There is now leing introduced to
these parents a new preparation which
has not as yet failed to accomplish won
derful results in establishing sound
phvs-cal conditions in sickly children
and .me thai is absolutely guaranteed to
rive relief and make a permanent cure.
Many people have been benefitted by
Ihis remedy sin.e it was first put upon
the market in January, 1U03, and hun
dreds of testimonials are in possession
of The Milks' Emulsion Company of
Terre Haute, Ind., which you can se
cure by simply writing for them.
It you will buy a bottle of this Milks'
Emulsion at y-.:r druggist's at a cost of

authorized to return the money to you.

Milks' Emulsion Co,, Terre Haute, Ind.:
Gentlemen For a long time my little
boy was not well; he was sick at his
stomach, cross and peevish. I com
menced giving him Milks' Emulsion
and ia a few days he was perfectly well
and in a short time had gained ten
pounds. I commenced giving it to my
six-months-old baby and found that it
made him fat and healthy. It is a good
remedy for croup and I would not be
without it in the house. I feel that 1
cannot say too much for Milks' Emul
sion. Yours respectfully, Mrs. John
