k WOMAN WHO HAS NOT HAD A
DRESS ON IN FIFTEEN YEARS.
Her Husband Complained That Her
Clothes Coat Too Much, and She Be

"Say, what kind of people are those
folks on the ranch about three miles
back?" asked a dusty stranger as be drove
into San Pablo.
"There are lots of ranches three miles
back," answered a resident.
"Well, I'll tell you what happened to me
and maybe you'll know the place. I was
driving along about a mile this side of
Pinole and I baw somebody in a blue
jumper shoveling just Inside the fence by
the roadside. He didn't pay any attention
to me and landed a shovelful of dirt right
in front of my horse. The horse reared
back, and as soon as be got quiet! started
in to curse the shoveler. He didn't pay
any attention to that and I got out to lick
"Well, I didn't do it. That fellow just
looked into my face, and if it wasn't a
woman I'll eat a house and lot. She wore
trousers and a jumper and a man's bat,
and she was spading up the soil in great
shape; but her long hair was flying about
her head and her face was as placid as any
grandmother's you ever met.
"She wasnt a prize beauty by any
means, but well, you can fancy how a
fellow would feel after swearing and jump
ing out of a buggy to lick a woman."
"Oh, that was Mrs. Kreiger. She always
dresses that way," said the resident. "I
thought everybody in these parts knew
SHE USED TO WEAR DRESSES.
Mrs. Kreiger has lived on a ranch on the
San Pablo road for over fifteen years, and
during that time she has never worn the
ordinary apparel of woman. So accus
tomed have the people of that vicinity lie
come to her and her strange dress that
they no longer notice it.
Still, Mrs. Kreiger is no woman's rights
apostle, nor advocate of dress reform. It
Is doubtful if she ever even beard of Mrs.
Jenness Miller or Mrs. Bloomer, and if you
mentioned Lady Habberton or the divided
skirt to her she would not know what you
were talking about.
Up to fifteen years ago Mrs. Kreiger
wore skirts and dresses like any other of
her sex. Indeed, it apiiears that she had
more of them, and that they were of more
varied forms, textures and colors than are
usually possessed by farmers wives.
It was shortly before the change in her
manner of dressing that she married Wil
liam Kreiger, a thrifty German farmer and
a widower, and went to live with him on
For a while there was absolute peace and
concord between them, but it did not last.
Mrs. Kreiger had just laid in her winter's
supply of tea gowns, walking dresses and
dinner toilets, not to mention some ducks
of wrappers, and pretty soon the bills be
gan to come in.
Crops had not bees all they might have
been, potatoes had gone down an eighth of
a cent a pound, and an epidemie of pip had
swept over the poultry yard.
ITER TERRIBLE VOW.
Kreiger diu not mind paying $16 for a
poem of red silk, and a pea green demi-toi-let
for $13 did not shake him, but when one
after another the accounts for yellow calico,
blue gingham and other tokens of vanity
and pride were rendered he began to grow
gloomy and taciturn, to lose his appetite
and sleep une.isily. But it was not. until
the returns from the milliners came in
that he complained. After, however, giv
ing the price of three spriug chickens for a
darling of a bonnet, and a whole sack of
turnips for a mere spot of a straw hat, with
some ribbons and other fixings on it, he
ventured to expostulate.
He told how the Mrs. Kreiger that had
l)eeu had worn the same calico dress for
Sunday two years, and how the sume
dress had served us second best for a like
space, and then lasted ut least a like time
to work ii:, and that there was even then
enough to make over for the little girl. He
pointed out how the paraxon that, had lieen
wore the Kaine hat she had when he mar
ried her during all the years of their wed
ded life, and had never breathed a demand
Mrs. Kreiger stood it meekly for a while.
Then she blazed out and declared that
since he was so stingy about it she would
not give him any more chance t3 complain
about her dresses. Then she made a
dreadful vow never to wear dresses again.
And she hasn't.
The bright hued garments were packed
away in two trunks, and they are there yet.
The Kreigers are well off now. They
have a fine ranch of eighty or one hundred
acres and money in bank. More who know
them say that Kreiger is worth at least
120,000. Mrs. Kreiger during all these
years Las kept house and helped on the
farm, in men's garments. Her usual cos
tume is a duck "jumper" and a pair of hex
husband's worn out trousers.
TRUE TO HER RESOLVE.
She is not proud and works in the field
u well atTher husband. Naturally she does
not go into society much. In fact she is
rather retiring. She has few if any visit
-Will open their
ors, and never goes 16 town. When sb
wants the batcher or ajsy other trades
man to call for an order she hangs out a
flag on the road. This signal they all nn
denitand and drive down to the house to
find what is wanted.
A reporter drove out to the Kreiger
ranch the other day. It is about a mile
froti Pinole, on the left side of the road.
The farm house is back several hundred
reel from the highway, an avenue bordered
by poplars leading from the road to the
door. The house is a. Jit tie white cottage.
The place is not particuairly tidy, and there
appeared to be nothing living about it but
a vi ious little yellow dog. Just inside the
dooi way, however, a strange figure was
seated. It was Mrs. Kreiger.
Sle appeared to be about 45 years old,
and was engaged in some knitting or simi
tar work. She wore her customary jumper
and a pair of trousers patched in various
plaos with pieces of grain bags.
She was not disturbed at all by the vtait.
but merely ran her hand through her
tons ed hair and indicated that she did not
W.aether she could not, or merely did not
care to, she did not, and presently she went
about her housework without even a sec
ond look at her visitor.
The neighbors say they have frequently
exportulated with her for her outlandish
garb., but she only answered that she had
madf i her vow and did not propose to break

A leading drnggist in the
northern part of th state said
to ns the other day: "There is
on thing about Keid s German
Congh and Kidney Cure that is
different from any other medi
cine I ever saw. and that is.
that it is generally and enthu
siastically endorsed bv leading
citizens in the city where it is
manufactured. Most medicines
are popular away from home.
but Reid's German Cough' and
Kidney Cure is endorsed, and
its merits attested, by citizens
who have need it and who are
acquainted with it." Emrrson
says, "The strongest testimonial
one can oflVr is the opinion of
his neighbor." It is to the
merit of Reid's German Cough
and Kidney Care that those
who are most conversant with
it are the loudest in its praise
and those who have seen it used
oftenest,tare the most ready to
recommend it. Mr Michael
Snider, foreman in the Peoiia
Journal office in Peoria, is a
case in jpoinl. He had been
suffering with kidney trouble,
and he was attacked while
"making up" with a severe pain
across the small of his back.
His sufferings were severe, and
he was finally taken home. He
was persuaded to try a bottle of
Reid's'German Cough and Kid
ney (Jure, and to his astonish
ment he was cured and able to
resume 1U work, nor has he
had a severe attack since, al
though he was often subjected
to them before. It also shows
that Reid's German Cough and
Kidney Cure will relieve kidney
trouble, for this was Mr. Snider'a
malady, and what he had been
treated for by all the physicians
in the city, and it had been so
pronounced. Since he began
taking this medicine, he never
was so well in his life.
