The other Kansas kty case is as follows:
C. V. F. Ileatoii, a Harvard grailuate, went to

Starting with :he olnervod fact that cana

plumage. Dr. Sa lermann, of the Berlin rhys
ioloicwi society, lias based upon it a scientifJc
iiivesttgatiuu of canaries, fowls, pigeons and
other birds. I- r mi these he obtained the fol
lowing results: reeding with pepper onlv
pr.iduces an effect when given to young birds
belore they moll ; tbe color of the feathers of
older birds cai uot be affected. Moisture
facilitate the rl ange of color to a ruddy hue,
whi.-b is again d si-barged under tbe influence
of sunlight and Ald. A portion of tbe con
stituents of cayenne pepper is quite iuactive,
as, for Iustanc,, plpurin and several ex
tractives; similarly the red coloring matter
alone of the iiepjier has dj effect ou the color
of tbe feu: hers.
It Ls rather tin triolein, which occurs in the
pepper in htrge quauties, together ith tliu
cuuracterutic p guieut, which brings atsut
tbe change of c dor by holding the red pig
nieut of the pe.per lu solution. Glycerine
luay be Used lustaad of triolein to bring about
the same result. TLa same statement holds
good with i-eor 1 to the feeding ot birds with
aniline colors. Tbe red pigment of tbe pep
per is also store, in the egg yolk as well as in
the feathers. The first appearance of tbe
pigment in tbe yolk may be observed as a

Jack shook off her band quite rudely.
"And yet 'when I ak you to marry me you

Jack Ashton passed out very haughtily.
There is no more exquisite pleasure that feel
ing that one ha a genuine grievance.
It wa Id o'clock and Mr. Ashton should
have been at bis desk in the banking bouse a
full hour before, but he was not troubled with
scruples, and Kewpon & Co. kuew bis wavs.
He was a very clever accountant, a man who
knew the market and could on a pinch do the
work of three meu.
"A cunning chap," said old Kewpon to the
Co., "and w-ill make bia fortune when he
buckles down to it. TV. will keep bim until
be knows his worth."
It was also September and Jack was due
for a week's vacation, so bis absence did not
"There isn't much tar a fellow like mo to

It was the afternoon of the third day. He
had been to the park in the morning aud bad

in his head, his knees knocked feigether more
than once, aud twice his eyesight seemed to
be leaving bim. He wa hungry; he bad not
eaten for nearly three days, but be thought

It would uevt-r do to die in such a blight
His clothes were dusty, his boots grimy and
scuffed, and he had uot brau shaved for three
days. Come! he might as well die lik
gentleman. The bootblack fell to work at
ouce as be sank into the chair, and Jack was
dimly conscious that the boy was making a
ood J. h.
A by street ran off the thoroughfare, and
half way down a slender red un.i white
striK?d pale protruded from a door. Jock
sauntered down to the shop and paused on
the sidewalk to make a survey. Heckles a
he was, he bad no notion of a tlve-cent shave
or one at irht-lnan bands. The survey was
eminently satisfactory. It was a very cabin
of a place, so small and so snug. Jack thought
that tbe barber looked like a German pro
fessor not of mujJc, theology, perbais, or
may lie ethnology or physics. A well buiit,
brown tvarded man. w ith his hair combed
smoothly hack from a high forehead, aud
eyes of limpid blue, calm aud reflective.
"Shave Yes, sir," said the barber, in a
voice quite in keeping with his looks.
"A pleasant day," said Jack drearily, as
tbe Ihu ber lathered him deftly.
"Exceedingly pLvtsant," soid the tiarber.
"Tbe weather is one of the few things we can
enjoy without price."
The idea struck Jack as original, and be
smiled for tbe first time in three days.
"Iu this world," pursued the barber,
"where a man bos but oue life, and that of
bumble origin, he bos to fight for what
others more favored can have for asking."
"A socialist," said Jack to himself, with
tbe natural contempt of a bank clerk.
"Therefore," continued the barber, begin
ning ou Jack's chin, "it is fortunate that this
life is but one of a cycle; that the Karma of
today la but a preparation for another life;
or perhaps Nirvana, who knows!"
"By heavens! a Buddhist!" exclaimed Jack
Tb barber turned his limpid eyes full upon
him. "Not exactly," he said .gravely, "I am
Jack gave a little start and then a cry of
"I have cut you, or rather," said the barber
apologetically, "you have cut yourself. It is
nothing a mere scratch. No, sir, theosophy

none of its faults and all of its virtues. You
understand the doctrines of Buddha Ignor

our existence; our existenoe is hopelessly
miserable misery is its very essence. To be
sure, there is another ufe, life upon life, but
wbo can regulate tbe succession!''
"Who, iiiiicedr" said Jack, closing his eye.
He wa petting weary.
"Our future condition is determined by th.
blind and ur conscious concatenation of cause
and effect. At the reincarnation a man
may become either a god or the lilest im
aginable object. That canary In h cagi
may have once I a syliante, a ti ifler."
Jack oieucd his eyes in auiu.sed contempla

he asked, w ith a smile ou his face.
"Certainly," replied tlw burlier gravely,
"I have already traveled part of the way to
Jiirvaua. 1 have twice achieved Dbyana,
during which 1 saw my past stage of exist
ence. 1 was a Carthageuian general ouce,
and ages ago I was a tiger. 1 have prepared
myself fur Nirvana by coutotnpuuiou and
thought, I have banished desire, cve, hates
all the bumau passions. 1 am a negation
with uo attachment fur existence."
"Yet you exist f ventured Jack, f Uug
toat he must say somethiug.
"I have diioed of niv business," said tbe
barber quietly. "I have sold evervthing ex
cept tbe bird: I shall give liim his liberty
before I go. You are tiie hut man I shall
"Ah, Indeed f" said Jack, making an effort
"Pardon me I have use for you," he said,
"you are necessary for my entrance to Nir
vana." "I bad a fancy," pursued the barter, run
ning bi thumb along the edge of the razor
and smiling gravely, "to round out some per
fect uuuiber and leave toil the determination

"But," said Jack, and bis tongue seemed to
thicken in his mouth.
"Oh. there can be no mistake," said the
barber cheerfully. "That would not hav.

hi head burx so and tbe canary's pip. seem
like a clarion trumpet!
A chill lik. ic passed down bis spine, and
then a hot flush lik. a fever. Ilia voice was
steady as a parson's as he said:
"There is only on. drawback to your plan.
You have made a mistake in your calcula
tions. This is not the on. thousandth shave."
For the first time the barber's eyes showed
a gleam of anger.
"Impossible!" be said sharply. "I have
gone over th. sum too often to make a mis
take, although I am not an expert at fig
"I am," said Jack calmly. "I am a bank
clerk and never make a mistake. 1 tell you,
your count is wrong it Is VM. Whatl do
you still doubt me! Give me a piece of paper
and I will convince yon in a minute."
"It is very strange," muttered the liarber,
as he laid down the razor and oiened a drawer
iu search of a piece of blank paper.
The cloth thut the barber hud tucked under
his chin was of cotton, but it answered Jack's
purpose. With a bound he was out of the
chair and had fliriig tho cloth over the bar
ber's head. Then, with all the strength ot
fear, horror and ragn, he struck with his fist
the muiHed figure, and it fell against the cup
rack with a great crash.
His knees gave way as be dashed across the
street, hut his voice had strength to cry
"Help! murder!" before he fell upon the
