A CASE OF RESEMBLANCE

(Cryrleit, loot, by Dailt Sroal I't'ai.ismso Compast )
As the Small Girl with the nuffles
faced the Captain In the early morning
light, he was again haunted by a re
semblance which had startled hlra the
night before when he had met her on
the hotel porch.
He had worried through a restless
night and had come early to walk up
and down the beach and watch the
green waves, with hesvy, miserable
eyes, and listen to their maddening
And all at once he had come upon
the Small Girl. She was barefooted
and stood where the waves, shallow
and foam flecked, touched her toes. Her
Inflnltestlmal skirts were gathered up
In a small bunch behind, and more ruf
fles than ever were In evidence. Her
hair was twisted up Into a knot on top
of her head. And now the Captain
knew why he was haunted. Somebody
else had worn her hair that way.
Somebody who had looked like this
Hut his reflections were broken In
upon rudely, as the Small Girl rushed
straight at him and clung to his white
trousers with sand soiled hands.
"It was a bigger wave," nhe shiver
ed. "And I am awfully afraid of the
With a sudden rush of memory the
Captain gathered her up in his arms.
Somebody had clung to him once In
Just that frightened way, and some
body's curls had blown across his lips,
and he had kissed them. He put the
Small Girl down suddenly.
"Did you get wet?" ho asked solici
tously. "No," she whimpered, "but It came
op to my knees and It looked so deep."
He sat don on a piece of driftwood
and took tier on his knee.
"It's too early In the morning for
little girls to be out alone."
Over the child's face there ran a
ripple of mischievous laughter.
"Mother doesn't know," she gurgled,
and clasped her small bands ecstatical
ly. "I ran away."
At the flash of her blue eyes the
hand of memory tugged once more at
the Captain's heart.
"She's asleep," went on the Small
Girl, "and pretty soon sho will wake
up and say, "Margaret, Margaret, darl
ing ' "
The Captain stopped her. "Is your
name Margaret." he asked excitedly.
"Ye-es," said the Small Girl.
"Is your mother's name Margaret,
too?" he went on.
She nodded and then gasped as the
Captain caught her In his arms and
held her very close and kissed her.
So many questions for such a Small
Girl to answer.
"Yees;" the Small Girl was a little
tired of so much emotion which she
did not understand. "My father'
name was Jack," she volunteered.
"How old are you?" ho asked, sud
denly. "Six." was the proud enswer.
"I knew your mother once," he said
"When I was up In heaven?" asked
the Small Girl piously.
The Captain nodded, rnd the Small
Girl settled herself to listen.
"Tell me about It," she said. "Was
she a little girl then?"
"She was very young and she had
curls like yours, and eyes like yours."
"Everything like me but her nose,"
broke in the Small GJrl, with her hand
"U your tame Margaret?" he asked,
over her own diminutive affair. "My
nose Is like my father's."
Involuntarily the Captain's hand
went up to his own fueo. "Oh, no," he
"You don't know," said the Small
Girl arrogantly. "Mother said It was.
And I hav-s my father's lovely dlsp'sl
Hon" "I)ld the say that?" demanded the
"Yes. Hut he went away."
"W hy (11 1 he go?" a-ked the Captain.
"He and ü,i,t,.r ha I u quarrel. It

"I hurí do It. And mother sent him

sorry, for he didn't tell her where he
"The Idiot," breathed the Captain,
whose face was white and set.
The Small Girl slid down from bis
knee and faced him wrathfully.
"You shan't call him names. He's
my very own father."
Into the Captain eyes there came a
look which the Small Girl did not un
derstand. He caught the small hands
In his and drew her to him.
"Suppose we write mother a 'letter
and ask her to come down."
"Yes." The Captain took out a note
book and tore a leaf from it Then he
m. m s i 6 ill 1 1
"Why did you come back?"
wrote the note with a hand that trem
bled, while the Small Girl watched
"What does It say?" she asked when
It was fdlded. ' '
"It says, 'Come down.' "
She opened It, looked at the scrawl
ed characters, and was satisfied, al
though she could not read It.
llut what it really said was:
"Margaret: Fate led roe to the
beach, where we had been together in
those first days, and brought to me
your second Belf, little Margaret. It
has been such a long time, dear. Sure
ly after all these years there Is noth
ing to keep us apart? Come.
. the Small Girl laborously
climbed the bluff the Captain watched
her out of sight. Then he paced rest
lessly up and down, up and down.
At last he say a woman down the
beach coming, her figure half-hidden
by the ascending morning mists. He
went to meet her, his eager eyes tak
ing in the beauty of her her curls
gathered up in the old way, her cheeks
pink with the hurry and excitement
There was only a minute for a silent
greeting, and then the Small Girl came
upon the scene. Her mother called to
her before Bhe reached them.
"Run back and get my parasol,
"The red one," shrieked the Small
Girl, "and can I cany it over my
"Yes, anything you want."
The child danced out of night, and
Mrs. Burton turned to the Captain.
"Does she know?" she asked.
"No," he said.
"Why did you come back?"
"Because I am your husband and
her father, dear. I should not have

wearily, and the tears trickled down
her white cheeks. "How can you for

her and drew her head down on his
"Because I have such a 'lovely dls
p'sltlon,' " he said.
Into her eyes came the same flash
of mischief that be had seen In the
"She told you I said that?"
"Yes, and It gave me courage."
Down the beach came a bobbing fig
ure submerged In a red silk sunshade.
When the Small Girl reached them
she wa evidently mu"h uplifted by
the sight of her mother with her head
agnlnbt the Captain's coat.
Mrs. Burton swept her up In her
arms and put, ber on the Captain's
"It's your father, dear," she said.
Burton waited for a cry of rapture,
but tho Small Girl was not alive to
dramatic situations. She kissed him
calmly, and then stroked his ht'id.-ionio
nose with admiring f.u;;er8.
"We really have very nice noaea,
father," the giggled.

MARK TWAIN'S FIRST EARNINGS.

"Yes," answered Mr. Clemens, puf

was a youngster I attended school at a
place where ths use of the birch rod
was not an unusual event. It was
against the rules to mark the desks In
any manner, the penalty being a fino
of $3 or public chastisement.
"Happening to violate the rule on
one occasion, I was offered the alter
native. I told my father, and, as he
seemed to think it would be too bad
for me to be publicly punished, he
gave mo the $.". At that period of my
existence $3 was a large sum, while
a whipping was of little consequence,
and so " (here Mr. Clemens re
flectively knocked the ashes from his
cigar) "well.Jie Anally added, "that

from Arkansas. "I v ii put the water

about the snakes of Martinique, and It
seems that they are afllh ted on the Is
land with a rather bad brand of
frakcR, snakes that really go around
looking for trouble. I could not liotp
thinking that the Martinique reptile
nnist be related In some way to thc
vicious water moccasin which Is to be
found in the St. Francis basin, up In
Arkansas. They are savage, and what
Is 'worse and more of It.' they seem
to have organized for offensive and de

I have known of Instances where it
would be Impossible for a farm hand
to water his horses after his day's
work on account of the snakes. The
makes fed In the edges of the lake
during the evening, and as soon as an
effort would be made to water the
horse at a certain place they would
rrake a charge on that particular
place, wriggling In from the lake in
great numbers. They seemed to re

Biblical Writings in
Old Turkish Mosque
Bom very interesting manuscripts
have been discovered In the vault of
the Jt in I -and Kcbar mosque, in. Dam
ascus. Relying on an ancient tradi
tion, which said that important docu
ments relating to the early Christians
were stored there, certain Biblical
scholars requested the sultan to let
them search the vault, and after con
sidering the matter for a year and
being assured by oriental scholars
that there were no ancient documents
in the vault relating to the Mahome
tan creed, he Anally gave his consent.
As a result a thorough search was
recently made and many valuable
manuscripts were found. These were
taken to Constantinople, and an ex
amination showed that among them
were several fragments of the Old and
New Testament In the ancient Syralc
tongue, as well as portions of a trans
lation of the Old and New Testament
in that Syralc dialect which was
spoken iu Palestine in ancient times.
THE LOGIC OF THE SABBATH
One Day In the Seven Should Be Kept
Free From Work.
As a psychologist, I believe in the
Sabbath day. One day In seven should
be kept holy from work and sacred to
man's primitive paradise of leisure.
I am no Puritan pietist or even Sabba
tarian in any severe sense, but hold
that this Is one of the greatest of all
human institutions, and that the com
mand to keep it as a day of rest Is
written in our physiological constitu
tions. If need be, it may be kept in
sleep, man's great restorer. Monday
our nerves and brain must be re
freshed, and we must start a new
weekly rhythm on a higher plane than
we closed the old one. The mental
scenery must be changed. The brood
er's overthought must have enlarged
our plana and given us both moment
um and direction. What form the rest
cure should take differs perhaps for
each person. I go to church, but my
neighbor should perhaps -spend the
day In tho fields with children, In
music, In books, but for all there
should be peace, tranquillity, repose,
surcease of worry and relaxation. In
no land should the Sabbath be so hal
lowed as in this land of hustle, tension
