THE BEAUTIFUL HAND.
A rKIl That Stcol tliv Teat of
There was a dispute among three
ladies as to which hal the most beau
tiful hand. Oue sat by a stream and
dipped her hand into the water and
held It up. another plucked strawber
ries until the ends of her lingers -were
pink and another gathered violets until
her hands were fragrant. An old, hag
gard woman, passing by, asked, "Who
will give me a gift, for I am poor?" All
three denied her, but another who sat
near, unwashed iu the stream, un
stained with fruit, unadorned with
flowers, gave her a little gift and satis
fied the poor woman, and then she ask
ed them what was the dispute, and
they told her and lifted up before her
their beautiful bauds. ' "Beautiful in
deed," said she when she saw them,
but when they asked her which was the
most beautiful she said, "It is not the
band which is washed clean In the
brook, it is not the hand that is tipped
with red. It Is not the hand that is gar
landed with fragrant flowers, but the
hand that gives to the poor Is the most
beautiful." As she said these words
her wrinkles fled, her staff was thrown
away and she stood before them an
angel from heaven, with authority to
decide the question in dispute, and that
decision has stood the test of all time.

The Bachelors' club of Kirkwood,
Mo., has been organized, with n staff
of officers from president down to ser
geant at arms, says the St. Louis
Globe-Democrat According to Its con
stitution and bylaws, the club will
work as auxiliary to the Ten Thousand
league of the same city. The Klrk:
wood bachelors boast of the longest
name for any club or association In
the state. They style themselves as
the Twentieth Century Amalgamation
of Associated Bachelors of the City of
Kirkwood and Vicinity, but for con
venience the members have conde
scended to permit themselves to be
called the Kirkwood Bachelors' club.
According to its constitution, "the pur
pose of the club shall lie to promote
brotherly and sisterly love, to seek to
uplift the downtrodden celibate from
his slough of despond and to guard
zealously the welfare of every member
Vbo may thus be encouraged to take
The organizers and leading spirits of
the organization are Joe Coulter and
E. P. Klnkead, president and corre
sponding secretary. The other officers
are J. E. Wilson, vice president; Au
gust Ossenfort, recording secretary; H.
Luepkln, treasurer, and August Fed
President Coulter and Secretary Kln
kead have prepared the bylaws, which
shall govern the action of the club at
all times. Some of the rules follow:
"The president shall preside at all
meetings unless busy courting a lady
and Is entitled to the first look at all
"The recording secretary shall keep
a record of the proceedings of the meet

addresses of marriageable unmarried
ladies of which he may learn.
"The corresponding secretary shall

setting forth the attractions offered by
this club. He Is authorized to formu
late a series of love letters, .which
members may secure by application to
"The treasurer 6hall dust off the
money at stated periods, upon which
he shall decide himself.
"The librarian shall keep on hand a
full supply of copies of soft poetry
and sentimental songs from lukewarm
to torrid. Members are allowed the
use of such poetry and songs' as their
cases may require.
"The sergeant at arms must have
strong arms and shall be on guard at
all meetings of the club to prevent any
rough characters from breuklng in
from the outside or rough houses
breaking out on the Inside."
The "rules for members" provide,
among other things, the following:
"All members must attend all meet
ings unless tliey have an engagement
with a lady. No other excuse goes, and
to prove such engagement the member
must within three days file with the
recording secretary a lock of hair of
the lady with whom he had the said
engagement Members must attend
all meetings, furthermore, In their
Sunday clothes and form a neat and

with a house and lot and $4 worth of
groceries. The fund to provide for
these benefactions will be maintained
by adding 10 per cent to the sewer
tjaxos of Kirkwood."

It will be a blow to the beauty doc

tact with the outer air, says the New

elastic fastened with buckles that nre
designed for service rather than show.
Others are of heavy white thoire rib

They Werq Onee Very Common
Lotteries were common in ancient
Rome, and during the middle ages lot
teries were utilized by the Italian mer
chants for the disposal of their goods.
Some of the Italian states then adopted
the lottery as a means of raising reve
nue, and the institution of state lot
teries afterward became very com
mon and very popular throughout Eu
rope. The earliest English state lottery of
which there is any record was in
when 40,000 chances were sold at 10
shrVings each, the drawing taking
place in the west door of St. Paul's
The prizes consisted of articles of
plate, and the profits were employed
for the repair of certain harljors. Early
in the reign of Queen Anne private lot
teries were suppressed "as public nui
sances," but government lotteries, haw
ever, were still maintained, and from
1700 to 1S21 considerable sums were
annually raised in lotteries authorized
by acts of parliament. .
The average yearly profit to the gov
ernment from 1713 to 1S24 was over
340.000. On the ground of injury to
public luomls lotteries of all kinds
were abolished in England In '1820.

Xo One Can Grow While His
Thoashtu Are Self Centered.
Forget yourself. You will never do
anything great until you do. Self con
sciousness is a disease with many.
No matter what they do, they can nev
er get away from themselves. They
become warped upon the subject of
self analysis, wondering how they
look, how they appear, what others
will think of them and how they can
enhance their own interests. In other
words, every thought and every effort
seems to focus upon self; nothing radi
ates from them.
No one can grow while his thoughts
are self centered. The sympathies of
the man who thinks only of himself
are soon dried up. Self consciousness
acts as a paralysis to all expansion,
strangles enlargement, kills aspiration,
cripples executive ability. The mind
which accomplishes things looks out,
not in; it is focused upon Its object
not upon itself.
The immortal acts have been uncon
sciously performed. The greatest pray
ers have been the silent longings, the
secret yearnings of the heart, not those
which have been delivered facing a
critical audlenoe. The daily desire is
the perpetual prayer, the prayer that

A Greek woman employed in the

whom she had injured and to whom she
had not spoken for ten years. When
she trudged through the snow three or
four miles to ask her "enemy's" for
giveness her relatives were sure she
had gone daft, but the next day, when
she came back to the hospital, she said,
"We made pence, and the stone In my
heart Is gone."

Strychnine Swallowed For Bonbon.
What Is considered a remarkable de
velopment In clairvoyancy was wit
nessed by many students of psychical
research In the home of Dr. John D.
Quackenbos at New York the other
night, when further experiments were
made with Anna Fortwangler, a young
German girl whose abilities as a clair

Interested scientists and physicians,
says the New York Herald.
It is seldom that nny hj-pnotist will

anything but listen and hear, but this
Innovation was permitted, with a re
sult that was astonishing to every one.
and to none more so than the hypnotist,
Gustav A. Gayer, who discovered the
young woman's abilities and who has
devoted much Of his time since he was
a central office man, when President
Roosevelt was police commissioner, to
the study of hypnotism and clairvoy
ancy. Anna, a rosy faced girl of twenty
three years, who talks little English, was
seated In an easy chair In Dr. Quacken
bos' study when M r. Gayer put her into
a hypnotic state. First came some .or
dinary experiments, strong ammonia
being held to her nostrils, which 6he
Inhaled under the impression she was
smelling a rose. Then, she swallowed
an uncoated strychnine pill and seemed
as delighted as if it were the bonbon
she was told It was.
Mr. Gayer described to the girl a ca
thedral and said servic.'s were being
held. He told her of a crucifix and
bade her kneel before it. She arose,
walked a few steps and then dropped
on her knees, her eyes raised solemnly
and her Hps moving as if in prayer.
Then 6he resumed her seat. The next
experiment was interesting and was
suggested by Dr. Quackenbos, know
ing the girl never had been above the
parlor floor in his home. Mr. Gayer
asked her what she saw in -the rear
room on the second floor.
She responded readily, describing the
room, even to the toilet articles on a
dressing table, and said there was a
man smoking a pipe In the room. Com
manded to go to the room and bring a
hairbrush from the dressing table, she
arose, ascended the stairs, walked to
the table and as she was leaving turn
ed to the man who was smoking and
said to him, "How do you do?" first
in German and then in English.
Then came the unusual test. One of
those present was Mine. Serena, an op
era singer. She asked permission to
speak to the girl. Mr. Gayer was sur
prised and dubious, but he consented.
Then Mme. Serena placed her hand in
the girl's, and Mr. Gayer said to Anna:
"I want, you to answer every ques
tion this lady puts to you."
"Are you in sympathy with me? Do
you like me?" asked Mme. Serena.
.Anna assented and seemed pleased.
"Do you see me?"
"What do I look like?"
"Your hair Is dark, and you have big
In response to another question Bhe
described the singer's costume.
"Now I want you to tell me what I
do. What Is my work my profes

"It's high," Anna . said. "You don't
work with your bands. You sing. You
are n. singer."
"Would you like to do the kind of
work I do?" asked Mme. Serena.
"Oh, I couldn't," was the prompt re
ply. "It's too high above me."
"Were you ever In a theater, , an
opera house? Did you ever see an
"No.. but I Baw a theater once," said
the girl. .
"Now, Anna," saki Mme. Serena, "I
want you to think very hard and tell
me where I sang last."
There was a Jong pause, and then the
girl said: "Ton haven't dark hair any
more. I see you In- a big; place-, but
your hair is blond;. It's -parted; in the
middle "and hangs down your back in
two braids. Your skirt: is -short -and
Mme. Serena seemed amazed.
"It was as: Marguerite in 'Faust,'"
she said to the others, "I made my- last
appearance on the : stage at ; Denver,
from which place I came-to New York
a month ago. I wore in the second. act
the costume the girl saw." My hair was
blond, and I was dressed as she de
8clbed., Then the singer sat at the piano, and
as she sang the girl was brought out
of her hypnotic trance. A report of the
seance will be sent to the London
