was graduated from Princeton univer

bar three years later, practicing at Mor

served, in the Fifty-fourth and the Fifty-fifth
congresses, and was a state

ITS xJFKS PROBLEMS.
It jpuzxles many why some men are
not millionaires. There Is Captain
Adrian C Anson, who is now doing a
stunt cn the vaudeville stage, as he
ays, "because he needs the money."
He la six feet In his stockings and
weighs to exceed 200 pounds, is 60
years old, and yet he ia driven to try a
dancing turn to help out his mono
It looks as If the world bag treated
th a old veteran badly. He is easily
th . most famous man In baseball play
us, -rrcbably more famous than any
who played for a, time and then matrlo
ulated as magnates and made good.
From start In the town lots to the
finish Anson must have played ball for
30 years. He was the most successful
captain, judged by results, that the
game ever produced.. He has grabbed
off more pennants than any two other
captains. He stayed In the game as an
active player a very long while and he
carried bis good batting eye clear to
In bis long day Anson's team took
In more money at the gate than any
other In the business. Anson himself
must have been the highest salaried
playing captain In the country, for cer
tainly be was the best He carried
himself soberly through all that long
and brilliant career, for of course he
had to show a good example to the
men under him.
In other words, be worked hard and
brilliantly and behaved himself, and
still be laid by mighty little for the
days of the lengthening shadows. And
all the time be was In a line that was
succeeding wonderfully in getting the
coin, a line that made many million
But somehow the best performer of
all of them and a man who carried
himself handsomely always didn't
make ends hitch.
One member of a gang of swlnd-
lers, who have been filching the
money of uncounted men and women
by selling them worthless mining
stock on false pretenses,' has been
sentenced In New York to Imprison
ment for one year. With the usual
allowance for good conduct be can
get out in little more than half that
iime. Another meuibex of the com
pany of crooks is set at liberty with
a suspended sentence after pleading
guilty. Three of their associates es
caped altogether, the Indictments
against them being quashed. All bad
been charged with the use of the
mails to defraud.
This Is extremely weak-kneed or ex
cessively tender hearted dealing with
dangerous criminals. There is
plague of swindling upon the country
and one of the favorite means of
fleecing trustful persons Is the clrcu
lction through the mails of lying
promises and unfounded statements
about stocks of many kinds. The
tribute collected every year by these
crooked so-called brokers amounts to
msny millions of dollars and the loss
falls chiefly on poor people who can
not afford to throw their bard won
In every case where It Is possible
to convict such criminals they should
bo given sentences severe enough to
serve as warnings to all harpies of
their breed. By way of prevention,
always better than cure, other states
might well follow the example set by
Kansas In compelling all dealers In
securities and property of any kind
handled by them as brokers to obtain
permission from a competent state
bureau, after full explanation of their
personal standing and the nature of
the stocks, bonds and other wares
they have to dispose of.
The system works admirably In
Kansas and it ought to help mater
ially in every state where It may be
THE DEM A XI) FOR HORSES.
So popular has the automobile be
come and so general is its use that
prophets a few years ago were sure
man's best friend, the horse, would
soon be eliminated from general ser
vice. It Is interesting, therefore, to
find Commissioner Huson of the New
York state department of agriculture
writing to Governor Dix that the state's
demand for horses is far greater than
the supply. The commissioner says
that annually 80,000 horses are brought
into New York state, mainly from the
west, for the use of farms, at an aver
age cost of $200 each; that the breed
ing of horses has never received the
attention on the part of New York state
farmers that its importance deserves,
and that many cf the best horses in
Europe are bred and raised by small
farmers whose holdings are less in
acreage than the average farm In New
With these considerations In mind,
he proposes to make a thorough inves
tigation of conditions in New York
state, with a view to ascertaining what
type of horses can be most profitably
produced in any given locality. He
submits that an examination should be
made into the laws of other states and
countries, governing the registration
and licensing of sires, and that the
New York state statutes bearing on
these subjects should be carefully over
hauled. Judging from the tone of the
commissioner's letter, he regards the
shortage of native horses as a serious
matter. This urgent demand for horses
seems to vindicate the Judgment of
those who have held all along that
there is room for both the automobile
and the horse.
There is a ready sale at top prices
for a good horse, but a poor grade
horse is not wanted.
FIX A 2-CENT MILE FARE
TO PARTY CONVENTIONS
Chicago, March 14. Fares to the
democratic national convention in
Baltimore and the republican national
convention in Chicago were fixed at 2
cents a mile at a meeting yesterday of
the Central Passenger association.
This decision was in accord with a
forecast made several days ago that
the railroads allied with the Central
Passenger association would adhere to
its general policy of granting nothing
less than 2 cents a mile to conventions
throughout the country. It is expected
that delegates and others going to the
democratic convention win take advan
tage of special fares to Atlantic coast
resorts, which are under 2 cents a
mile and provide for a stop-over at Bal
timore. Summer tourist fares, which
will be In effect during the republican
national convention in Chicago, will be
open to those attending j.he gathering.
We already have a thousand men
who can make money to one man who

bravo lad the hero of each. One is

lad's hard Journey borne. The other
la Frank B. Elser's 'Wireless Peter"
In which a plucky lad, fascinated by
thi magic of wireless telegraphy,
wins out in spite of many discourage

I'm werry like G. Washington, the
old man said to me;
old and am keeping steady company
with a young man. Am I old enough
to keep company with anyone?
Evidently your conscience is troub
ling you. J"Steady company" usually
means marriage after a reasonable
length of time, and if you are willing
to forego the pleasures of girlhood and
settle down to 'married life, then you
are old enough to do so.

tell me how to dress. DOROTHY,
(1) Yes. (2) The styles for next
winter are not yet known. (3) Dress
as a French maid. For this costume
wear an ordinary dark dress with a
maid's apron and cap. The ribbons on
the apron and cap should match the
mask. Carry a feather duster.
Dear Mrs. Thompson: I am 15 years
old and I have a boy friend whom I
like very much. I beard he said I was
too young. How can I find out wheth-
er it is the truth. ? I have a brother,
and every time he sees me talking to
a boy he tells my mother. What would
you advise me to do? WAITING.
Your boy friend Is right and so Is
your brother. Think less about boys.
There Is an echo for each laugh
An echo from the ones who hear.
But they have fellowship who quaff
The bitter drink brewed from a tear.
The man who knows of sorrow's weight
Is never In that woe alone;
The mystic brotherhood of fate
Gives him a thousand friends unknown.
A softer cadence fills his songs;
A truer grasp is In his hand.
For, out of seeming bitter wrongs.
He comes at last to understand
The heartbeats of his fellow men.
The clinging of their hopes and fears.
When grief brings her message, then
He goes more softly all bis years.

"1 believe Mrs. Hanford has a tale toi
unfold," observed that lady's husband
as be placed a chair for her.
"Good!" exclaimed Professor Trayre
heartily. "Now, Alex, spread the car
pet of truth on the deck and let Mrs.
Hanford begin at once."
A little laugh ran around the group
of seven friends touring the world on
the steamer Neptune. Each one bad
bad a story to relate concerning some
adventure encountered in quaint street,
noisy ba&ar or primitive environs of
foreign cities. Every night after din
ner the seven had gathered on deck
and in the moonlight bad told stories
and exchanged opinions on many mat
ters of mutual Interest.
The carpet of truth to which the
professor bad referred was a precious
bit of oriental carpet that Alexander
Felton had brought from a remote
Turkish province, and the Neptune sto
ry tellers had each told his tale sitting
upon its breadth of silken richness.
Now Mrs. Hanford removed her chair
so that she sat upon the carpet, and
the six listeners composed themselves
for an hour's enjoyment,
"My .story is about this rose colored
scarf," began Mrs. Hanford, opening
one plump hand to display a crumpled
ball of pink silk and silver tissue. She
shook out the airy fabric, and it float
ed a shimmering length that seemed
woven of sunset and moonbeams. The
airy scarf undulated like a thing alive,
leaped at Arthur Clayton's eager, in
terested face and clung to it with a
caressing motion and then left bim to
brush Mr. Hanford's bronzed cheek,
to tweak the golden eyeglasses from
Professor Trayle's dignified nose and
finally to rumple Alexander Felton's
hair into untidiness. Then it settled
down in Mrs. Hanford's lap and was
"The darling!" cried ArtLur Clayton
enthusiastically, with a dizzy look at j
the pink searr.
"Why. did you see her, too?" de
manded the other three a - in bewil
"Yes you don't mean I say, Mrs.
nanford, what sort of a Juggling game
is this?" Young Clayton stared first
at the rose silk scarf and then at Mrs.
Hanford's sensible, motherly face
"Yon ought to explain it Mary," as
sured her husband with some concern.
"What is it all about V demanded
Miss Emellne Gray, the strong minded
faunt of Arthur Clayton. "What has
happened to turn all of their heads?
I'm sure I saw nothing save a pretty
pink silk scarf. What did yon see,
"I see an eastern city, a beautiful
hourl with a pink scarf on her bead, a
space left for the eyes, trousers a la
Turk and gold coins banging over her
"We are missing the story. Pray,
begin, Mrs. Hanford," urged Miss
Mrs. nanford folded her hands over
the pink and silver thing in her lap
nnd fixed her eyes on the molten silver
track that led across the Mediterra
nean to the rising moon.
"This is the only secret ! ever kept
from James," she said, not looking at
her surprised husband. "When we
were in Cairo he was busy hunting
for scarabs to carry home to souvenir
loving friends. I was seeking gauze
scarfs -to take to the girls at home.
The dealer in scarfs had sold me
several beauties, and woven in each
one was some romantic story that the
wily old fellow invented as he went
"One of the scarfs had belonged to
that daughter of Pharaoh who found
young Moses among the bulrushes;
another of apple green and seed pearls
had been the gift of Antony to Cleo
patra: a third one of black and gold
and crimson had jealousy and murder
for its setting.

pink and silver I was skeptical at his
air of exaggerated concern in handling

of the Princess Anem." he murmured,
looking over his shoulder at the dark
Interior of his little shop. 'She had
a lover, Fedar by name, a handsome,

ed father strongly disaffroved. There
was another lover, a prince of royal
blood, who sought the h:md of the
Princess Anem. and it was he who

woman who became the prince's bride.

able head and Inclined a listening ear
toward the rear of his shop. I looked
and thought I could make out a dim,
shadowy whiteness, like the form of a
young girl clad in a flowing robe.

I was conscious that the white shadow
had returned to the shop. It paused
behind the seller of scarfs as if waiting
for his answer.

he said briefly. "She could have had
the scarf of the Princess Anem for a

water carrier or disgrace me by re

to a bargaining whine.
"'You cannot want to sell It Yoa

"He dashed the scarf Impatiently
down. 'Never! If madame .does not

head and looked behind me to see a
group of American women coming
post haste toward the bazaar.
"That was enough for me. I paid
an absurd price for the scarf. James,
you shall never know. As I tucked It
away with the other purchases I had
made I beard a long drawn sigh from
the white shadow as It vanished.
"It was in the next street that a
girl came flying up to me and lightly
touched my arm. A pair of dark
flashing eyes shone above the gauze
that veiled her face, and well, any,
girl with a pair of eyes like those
must have been exquisitely beautiful.
I knew at once that It was the em
bodiment of the shadow that had
lnrked behind the seller of scarfs, and
I guessed that It was his daughter
Leila, she who loved Fedar the water
"She addressed me In a low, mu
sical voice, a mixture of broken
French and fluent Arabic. She thank

her father concerning ber marriage.
She giggled with delight over my hor
ror at the fatness of Hasbour, the silk
merchant and her despised suitor.
Then she made an appeal. She want

traveling companion, only as far as
Alexandria, where her water carrier
had gone to work on the new wharfs
as a sort of foreman."
Mrs. nanford stopped abruptly. The
great vessel was drawing near to the
Egyptian city, lying like a jeweled
necklace along the blue Mediterranean.
In the roadstead the great anchors
rattled down into the moonlit water,
myriads of little boats surrounded the
ocean liner, and a s'enin tug bustled
from the shore. All was coufusion
