TALKS OF CITY
A girl of probably 17 years, weeping,
came to police headquarters the other
evening. She handed the officer who
met her a telegram from a city some
thing over one hundred miles from
Hock Island stating that hex brother
was dying and urging her to come to
Mm at once. All the money she pos
sessed In the world was fl.Su. The
fare t her destination was $1.
Jennie did not have any relatives or
close friends in the city to whom she
roulJ turn for assistance, and In her
desperation the appealed to the police
authorities. She had only recently
come to the ciiy and was employed
as a servant In the home of one of the
we'. I known families.
Jennie Mated that she showed the
telegram to her mistress, but that the
latter did not evince interest beyond
paying her what wages she had com
ing, and expressing sorrow at he
brother's condition. Jennie told her
that she did not have sufficient funds
to carry her through, but her mistress
coldly reminded her that it was a mis
fortune over which she had no control.
Jennie hail acquaintances, but she
thought if any one would aid her It
would bo the woman In whose home
she had been serving. The Indiffer
ence with which her story was receiv
ed there went straight to the girl's
heart. Her eyes were swollen from
crying when she reached the station.
Perhaps if I had pleaded with her
hhe might have helped me." the girl
said. but when I saw there was no
sympathy for me. I just could not
speak. It is hard to have to come to
the police. I know, but I know no
place else to go. He is my only broth
er, and I must go to him if I have to
start walkirfg to his home this very
The story of the girl touched th offi
cers at the station. Policemen dally
hear enough bard luck tales to Oil a
book. Hut this was one that could not
fail to reach a man with a heart. And
policemen have hearts the same ns oth
t individuals, even if tbey do act at
times as if they did not.
Chief Miller took Jennie to the Bur
lington depot and bought her a ticket
to the city where her brother lay dy
ing. telling her to keep the $1.50 for
Incidental expenses. The Joy that
the kindness of the officer brought to
the heart of the girl momentarily
caused her to forget her sorrow, but
she could not suppress her tears when
she expressed her thanks at the depot
promising to return the money as soon
as she secured the amount.
"One night, some years ago. I cot
a harry call to the home of an alder
man residing in the west end of the
city." said one of the veteran member?
of the force. "He had been to the

WINTER BIRDS HAVE COME
English Sparrows, Woodpeckers, Etc..
Take Place of Summer Visitors.
With the r.d vent of November most
of the summer bird have migrated
to the sunny south and the hardier
winter birds remain to cheer the cold
and dreary winter. Few birds ex
cept the saucy sparrows and an oc
casional blue jay are seen In the
business district of the cities, but in the
outskirts and in the country are fuunci
many feathered friends.
The English sparrow is a constant
companion and may be found in every
hamlet and village from Manitoba to
Florida. This little gamin inTest
every street, a. ley and roof, in search
of food, and in the summer builds his
nest in every conceivable place. He U

The first Knglish sparrows were im
ported in 1S51. ten pairs being liber
ated in the city of Brooklyn. A bounty
of 2 cents a head was paid by the
state previous to 1902 and thous
ands of them were needlessly slaugh
tered. The sparrow is one of the few
birds that escapes protection under
the recent game law. yet he is unmo
lested, being of no commercial value.
The woodpeckers, of which three
species exist, is another family of the
birds that remain In this section dur
ing the winter. The most common is
the red-headed woodpecker, most
numerous In the early winter. His
habitat is the timber land, where he
Muds acoins and seeds, which be stores
away in hollow trees and logs for food
when tie ground is Ice-covered. He
is very sociable and keeps the woods
awake with his chattering.
The downy wojdpecker is an
other of our winter birds, though it Is
aot so well known as the flicker or
the red-headed woodpecker, being more
common in the northern states.
" The chickadee Is a small bird that
lives in small trees and shrubs. He is
very,tame. but rarely ventures near a
clearing, staying close to the timber
ed land. The chickadee may be seen
in - large droves hanging from small
twig3. where they gather innumerable
insects. They have a peculiar call
which resembles their came.
The blue jay is the most unsociable
winter friend and of a most greedy and
thievish nature. He is easily distin
guished by his slow, irregular flight
and his plumage. He is of a venture
some nature and feels no fear in
alighting near a dwelling, where he Is
ever on the lookout for something to
eat. He flits about from limb to
limb with his noisy cries, inviting an
attack from the sparrows, of which
he is a deadly enemy. The Jays gen
erally move in numbers of three and
four, rarely flying for any great dis
tance. In the nesting season they
seem to take delight in destroying the
nests of other birds and in killing the
The crow is another great thief and
the especial enemy of the farmer, for
whom he destroys a large amount of
corn. He will visit the corn field in
the early morning and dig up the
corn that the farmer has taken such
trouble to plant, lie is a flesh eater,
too. and consumes much dead animal
flesh, in which he is very beneficial.
He preys on other birds nests and on
the chicken yards, where he destroys
many egg's. The crow is a very
shrewd bird and ir is very hard to get
within shotgun of him.
The junco. better known as the
snow-bird. Is a jolly little fellow and
very sociable. He hops around on the
snow-covered ground and may be made
very tame by scattering a few crumli3
about when the snow is deep and it
is hard for him to find enough food.
The junco and the chickadee are great
friends and may be found together in

"I was elected," said he. "because i
made my fight upon a single, live, hu
man issue which reached straight into
the intimate everyday affairs of men
and women because of that issue and
a generous use of publicity. Adver
tising has made my business pay, and I
used it to the limit in arousing and di
recting the sentiment which I knew
to be widespread on the subject
which was our chief issue reciprocity
and tariff relief.
Before People All Time.
"The central committee ran the cam.
paign. we ran the advertising down at
Brockton. From the outset; my ideu
was to keep our fight and our idea
right before the people to keep just
a little, more in the public view than
the republican candidate.
"I made the fight solely on the propo
sition that we should have reciprocity,
and that all trusts which sell their
products abroad cheaper than we can
buy them here should not be permit
ted to enjoy protection. I gave tlfem
practical examples of the working of
the tariff. I told them that on every
pair of shoes costing $3 turned out of
our factories there was a tariff duty oi
9 cent3 on the raw material. I in
stanced a recent purchase of $550,000
of leather, which I bought from the
trust, on which there was a duty of
$55,0000. I gave concrete illustrations
in the woolen, cotton and other trades.
"it was an issue that touched a pop
ular chord. They said in the rational
campaign that we had no issue. We
had the greatest, the most vital of is
sues. For some reason it was subordl
nated in our national campaign. It
was the one issue of all others to have
pressed it was the thing the peopK
were palpitating over. We made ou
people understand that the tariff and
trust question is the same; that it is
idla to talk of solving the trust ques
tion so long as we are sheltering
these 'giant paupers' under our pro
Lotting; Six to One.
"I told our people that Massachu
setts put $G in the protection pool foi
every dollar it took out; that our 50,-
000 homes contributed $05,000,000 a
year to the trusts; that the steei
trust alone reaps $80,000,000 a year
out of protection, and pockets it, sell
ing abroad cheaper than we can buy
from it. And yet they have the assur
ance to tell us the trust question has
nothing to do with the tariff.
"My election means the first gun in
a battle for reciprocity and tariff re
lief. "In my inaugural I shall begin the
work by asking the legislature for per
mission to appoint a commission to
thoroughly investigate all the tariff in
justices and report fully. That report l
shall seek to have sent to the people
under our referendum law, to instruct
our representatives in congress to take
steps to procure reciprocity and lower
tariff. I do not believe that the repub
lican legislature will block this effort.

the responsibility. The people have
shown what they want."
