HAD A LITTLE ONE HIMSELF.
A Queer nit of Character from the Re
cord of a Police Court.
If you were a sergeant at the desk of the
Central station you, too, would seem grim
and hard hearted to an outsider. They see
so much crime they see so many phases of
it they hear the same excuses over and over
until they seem to lose all faith in and all
hope for those who sin. Their hearts grow
hardened, the wellsprings of mercy dry up,
and you see no pity in their glances. And
yet it needs but a sentiment to break through
The other night a woman was brought in
staggering drunk. She had a face that was
pinched and drawn, and it was plain that
worry and hunger made her look years older
than she was. You and I would have looked
into ber face and eaid that she had somo ex
cuse for temporarUy seeking to forget her
identity. Tho grim old sergeant only saw an
infraction of the law, and he frowned upon
ner assne stooa clutching the desk.
Hero was a li v Ing book which recorded
twenty years of worrysjifferlng, heartaches,
poverty, woe and -want, but ho refused to
turn the pages. He had no curiosity; he had
"Name I" ho sharply demanded.
She gave it.
"What have you got in that parcel ("
"I'll never give it up!" she oxclaiiuod.
It was something wrapped in an old hand
kerchief, and she clung to it the tichter. You
and I would havo wondered if it wasn't a bit
of money she had tliero, but the 6orgoant
mougui oi jioison or somo other danger and
ordered it handod up. It took two men to
release her grasp, and whon the parcel was
undone, what do you supposo they found in
it? A wee littlo stocking, such as a child a
oouplo of years old might wear. Tho big too
of the wearer had mado a holo, and the heel
had bean worn thin, and the bright red
color had faded away, as the clow fades from
the summer sky when the twilight comes
Tho serpeaut held it up not in mockery
and ridicule but as if it were a tender thinir .
Tho primness went out of his face, a softness
replaced tho f rown, and, as the woman bent
ber head and sobbed, ho said:
"It is a relic of her dead child 1 Poor, un
fortunate mother !"
"You won't take it from mor she gasped.
"Not for the world! Can you go homer
"I I guess so. I feel stronger. "
"Then go, and may all men and women be
merciful to you."
The spring of mercy had been touched. As
the grim old sergeant held up that faded
stocking be remembered that be had relics at
home relics of children who had danced en
his knee in the sunshine of the past, but who
now laddered in the dust. Kot for all the

Murphy'a Ducking Exnerlence,
Dan Murphy, one of the oldest of St Louis'
duck hunters, tells the following froc story
"One day early last October I went to BlufT
lake for my fall hunt. Late one moonlight
night I saw what I thought one thousand or
more wood ducks sitting on a sycamore tree.
It occurred to me that if I shot a duck before
Oct. 15 I would violate the law. While study-
mg whether or not to violate, the wholo
crowd suddenly flew up and over me. I shot
two barrels and two more, and a dozen fell
right around mo. Fearing some constable
might havo heard the shot, I squatted right
in tho marsh for fifteen minutes, when, hear
ing nothing, I gathered up my ducks, and lo!
they were crows. 1 sat down and howled.
Then I swore I would got a dozen wood ducks
UT 1 had to stay there all night. A few min
utes aftor tho moon weut down a thou
sand frogs suddenly sprang forth and
began their confounded monotonous chant.
I had no meat in camp, and half a dozen
times started to shoot a mess, but rafrained
to save myshells for ducks. Along about
morning one came sailing down to my right.
1 didn't hit it. Then two came to my left. I
hit both and then Bvo drove at my head and
I pot them. 1 hen they began coming so fast
that they took my bat off, and I slaughtered
them untd my shells were exhausted. But
the rascals all crawled under the marsh grass

went to tho camp as mad as a hatter. I mode
a long frog gig, took a new Bupply of shells.
ana started back earlv the following morn
ing. I just got among the frogs again when
tho ducks came. I shot all my shells away.
and again got nothing. Besides, tho frogs
had all disappeared. Along came the ducks
right at me. Finally, they wore coming so
tmclt that 1 had to blaze at one with the gir
Sure, to my surprise, I gigged one. I put it

one of her set a member of the consular ser
vice and an artist "is perhaps the saddest
woman alive, bhe loved her husband; she
loved power, because she has in a high de

a mind which soes things wholesale rather
than in detail, and she is a proud woman, in

None of her daughters have her mind. They
are kindly and well disposed and dutiful
toward their mother, but not in touch with
her. Being obliged to quit the palace in
which she lived at Potsdam with her husband
during thirty years was a cruel blow to her.
She has become deeply pious. Religion alone
Gils her heart. The paint brush and palette
have beeu laid aside. It is her intention to

her experience below:
" In one store where I went to buy Hood's
Sarsapaxilla the clerk tried to induce me buy
their own instead of Hood's ; he told me thelr's
would last longer; that I might take It on ten
days' trial; tliat If I did not like it I need not
pay anything, etc. But he could not prevail
on me to change. I told him I knew what
Hood's SarsaparUla was. I had taken it, was
satisfied with it, and did not want any other.
'When I began taking Hood's SarsaparUla
I was feeling real miserable, suffering
a great deal with' dyspepsia, and so weak
that at times I could hardly stand. I looked,
and bad tor some tune, like a person in eon
sumption. Hood's Sarsaparllla did me so
much good that I wonder at myself sometimes,

The Soap I come to speak about
is the Great Santa Claus.
Tis good for every purpose.
For which a soap is needed,
And joy will bring to
Who has wise counsel
spent a nickel, just to
What wonders it will do,
To lighten labor, save expense
And make things brightand new.
