SHE WAS LOYAL
Likewise Hottest Enough to Tell Lin
coin the Truth.
During the war between the states
Miss N.. a high spirited Virginia young
lady, whose father, a Confederate aol
dler. bad been taken prisoner by the
Union forces, was desirous o' obtain
ing a pass which would enable her to
visit him. Francis P. Blair agreed to
obtain as tudkoct) witti ilia prcaMf
but warned bis young and rather "im
pulsive friend to be prudent and not
betray her sympathy for the south.
They were ushered into the presence
of Mr. Lincoln, and the object for
which they had come was stated. The
toll, grave man bent down to the little
maiden and. looking searchingly into
her face, said:
"You are loyaL of course?"
Her bright eyes flashed. She hesi
tated a moment and then, with a face
eloquent with emotion and. honest as
his own, she replied:
"Yes. loyal to the heart's core to

upon her for a moment longer and
then went to bis desk, wrote a line or
two and banded her the paper. With
a bow the interview terminated. When
they bad left the room Mr. Blair be
gan to upbraid his young friend for
"Now you have done It!" he said.
"Didn't I warn you to be very care

Miss N. made no reply, but opened

They Always Treat a Stranger With
In Brittany all peasants carry their
own knives, and, as for forks, they
have no use for them. George Whar
ton Edwards tells in "Brittany and the
Bretons" of a visit to an inn where he
met with the proverbial Breton hospi
tality. An old withered Breton .woman sat
at the fireside busily knitting at a jer
sey of blue wool, and three men sat at
a table playing some sort of game with
dominos. The men gave no apparent
heed to our entrance, but I knew we
were being discussed In their patois. ,
We asked for bread, butter and a
pitcher of cider, which was forthcom
ing, but no knives were brought. Not
ing our predicament, the three men at
once produced their knives, immense
born handled affairs, and after wiping
them very carefully and considerately
on their coat sleeves they opened and
proffered them to us.
"And now, madame," said I, "what
shall I pay you?"
"Five sous for the cider, m'sieur.
There is no charge for the bread, for is
not that the gift of bon Dieu?"
Thus it is throughout this strange
land of Brittany. One may travel
from end to end away from the large
cities and everywhere meet with the
same hospitality. The peasant will
willlny share with you what he has
in the cupboard and will not ask for

lost upon the old Bretonne, who when

THE ROCK PTARMIGAN.
A Bird of Storms and Ice, Raw Mists
and Bleak Winds.
In order to make the acquaintance
of the ptarmigan it is necessary either
to journey into the snows and ice of
the far north or to climb up to the
very highest glacier valleys among Ihe
frozen peaks of the Rockies or Cas
cades, where clrcumpolar conditions
are reproduced. While this curious
bird Is essentially a subarctic type, it
is occasionally found among the iso
lated fields of eternal snow as far
south as Colorado and northern New
The rock ptarmigan Is a bird of
storms and ice and raw mists and
bleak winds. In the summer gray as
the rocks among which he lives, lu
winter white as the whirling snows in
the midst of which he survives after
every other feathered living thine:,
save only the fearless eagle, has fled
to the lower valleys.
Ilia brother, the willow ptarmigan,
lives lower down by 500 or 1,000 feet,
among the dwarfed shrubs which
mark the upper edges of tree life,
and, while similar in size and struc
ture. Is of a less somber plumage
and more friendly disposition than the
ghostly gray specter of the upper
world, the rock ptarmigan. The males
of the willow ptarmigan especially are
beautiful birds, brownish gray upon
the backs and wings, with rich red
dish brown throats almost chestnut

Violins Old and New.
There is a general impression that
very old violins and violoncellos are
much superior in tone to. similar instru
ments of modern construction. The
point was debated by a number of
Paris musicians, who decided in favor
of the modern instrument. Six ancient
violoncellos were chosen, including a
Stradivarlus, a Theckler, a Cappa, a
Pressenda and a Guarnerius, together
with six modern instruments. These
were played alternately by Senor Ca
sals, who was hidden from sight, the
lnstrur ents being indicated to the Jury
by a number and marks awarded
according to beauty of tone. The
modern instruments aggregated 1,48-1
marks and the ancient instruments

Offers Athletic Field.
Champaign, Jan. 3. Champaign
high school students will have a
model athletic field as a result of
the generosity of Representative W.
B. McKinley. Last night an offer
was made by Mr. McKinley to the
local board of education of a tract
of land 444 by 330 feet in the west
part of this city. It is conveniently
situated in relation to the car lines
and can be made into an excellent
field for sports. Congressman Mc
Kinley also tendered $1,000 in cash
to be used In equipping the field
with bleachers and other improve
ments. The board of education, if
necessary, will increase this sum.
It is planned to have a gridiron,
baseball diamond and running track
with a small clubhouse perhaps. If
the board of education does not de
sire the site suggested Mr. McKin
ley offers $5,000 In cash to use in
purchasing land elsewhere. The laud
suggested, however, is regarded as
suitable. . Local high school teams
are sadly In need of such a field.
