AT THE OLD TRYSTING PLACE.
The dead leaves rtwtl 9 at my feet.
The moon Is whining brightly; l
Something1 haa softly dimmed my eyea.
Acroas the path one s ladow Ilea,
The path two trod si lightly.
It was upon a night It te this
Lore left na only aoirow;
I held her little hand n mine:
That parting la to ma divine.
Then there waa no t Jmorrow.
Since I have learned life's lesson well
Hearts are not easy broken.
Tonight ail Joys I ha vi forgot;
There's unethlng sac red in this spot.
Where sweet goodb s were spoken.
I'd feel less lonely wit i myself
If I were broken hef.rted;
Would I could live thi.t night again.
With all its sadness-s-veetened pain.
When love from lovo was parted!

What a Toong Man Did.
A college graduate had hardly received
his diploma before he was compelled to
face poverty and famLy disgrace. His
father, who had been reputed to be
wealthy, was an embes zler and a fugi
tive from justice. His rx other and sisters
were entirely dependent upon his modest
earnings in a broker's o:Bce.
He had planned takiig an advanced
course of professional study in architec
ture. His ideal occupation had to be
abandoned. He was in love with a
charming girl, but ceas ed to visit her
since marriage was out of the question.
An opportunity for a ye ir's travel in Eu
rope at a friend's expen.-se was given up.
Year after year he maintained a hard,
bitter struggle to make- a living at un
congenial employment for his mother
and sisters, to bupport 1 is father abroad
and to overcome prejud:ce caused by the
family disgrace. He became a success
ful business man, but was prematurely
gray at 40. His life was haunted by the
ghosts of his youthful h apes.
Such lives do not furi.ish material for
exciting stories. They ,re dull and pro
saic, but are nevertheless heroic. To
give up all that is dear to youth and to
be loyal to family obligt tions sometimes
is a crowning triumph of unselfishness.
Many Ministers Present.
Ex-Secretary Lincoln, while United
States minister to England, wished to
get into Westminster on the occasion of
a special service there. Archdeacon Far
rar had told Mr. Lincoln to go to the
east door of the cathedral to avoid the
crowd and to inform tho usher that he
waa the American minister, so that he
could be conducted at oi.ee to the arch
deacon's pew. When Mr. Lincoln sent
in his name and title, i he usher came
out and said, with surprise, "For gra
cious' sake, how many A merican minis
ters are there?" It seens that several
gentlemen of the cloth had each deftly
made his way into the cl urch by inform
ing the usher that he wns an American
minister. San Francisco Argonaut.

A white and very refined lady who
has been conducting a Chinese mis

been married to one of the

he had not married the lady possibly
she might have caught a Caucasian.
Kev. Gilbert Beid. formerly a
Presbyterian missionary in China,
says in the Independent that the
proper way to dispose of the Geary
law i) to have the whole matter de
termined by treaty, whereby the
Chinese government could co-operate
and assist. "Repeal the law of
1888 as well as 1892," he says, -and
then have proper certificates with
proper identification in China signed
by representatives of both govern
ments. Then the frauds can be
kept out "
In Philadelphia some of the park
policemen have been mounted upon
bicycles and are thus enabled to per
form their duty with much more
celerity. This would be an excellent
Idee everywhere, where cities are not
too hilly for bicycle riding. Polioe
men could ohase malefactors with
certainty of success, and they could
go to each other's assistance with
great rapidity. Besides that, an at
tachment could be made to the ma
chine so that every policeman could
propel his own jag wagon.

Dr. Wilson, of the Scott Medical Institute,
points with pride to this display of former patients
who were cured at the Institute at 221 Bradj St.,
Not one of these patients are now under treat
ment. Some of them were cured some three years
ago. Their statement was given at that time and
they are CURED. Today no case will be accepted
for treatment where a complete cure cannot be pro
duced. These statements are not "catch all"' cases.
Each lady and gentleman took their treatment, paid
for it, and gave their statement of their own free
'he Scott Medical Institute is the only Insti
tute in the Tri-cities that has been here for years.
There are "traveling physicians'" who you
know have remained a few months taken your
money, and where are they today? The Scott Med
ical Institute was opened for straight legitimate
business. If you can be cured these physicians
will frankly tell you so and place you under treat
ment. If you cannot be cured they will not accept
your case. Out of the thousands who have visited
the Scott. Medical Institute during the past few
years. Dr. Wilson has only written the death cer
tificate for one person. 1
