yrus W. Higglegag, connected with
the hardware firm of F. W. Ringleoup
fe Ca Chicago, is a man of uninten
tional eccentricity. I say unintentional,
because I have noticed that the major
ity of men 'whom we term eccentric are
not only wide awake to their own pe
culiarities;, but seem to be ever culti
vating them to a higher state of oddity.
Higglegag's strangeness-a rude remark
or tausque action-appeared to spring
from a sort of nervousness that at times
came upon him. Not long ago he made
a business visit to a southern town, one
of those delightful places that has reach
ed contented old age-a town in whose
suburbs a dove softly coos above an old
negro who dozes in the shade, where
the lolling dog is almost too lazy to get
oat of the way of the sprinkling cart.
Higglegag strolled along the street
He had one of his .nervous fits, but
would have resented an insinuation that
he might possibly be eccentric He met
a young woman whom he had for some
zne been watching, just as another
woman had passed..
"I knew it," said Higglegag, ad
dressing the young woman.
"What?" she exclaimed.
"I say that I new it. "
"Knew what, sir?"
"Knew that you were going to look
around to see how that woman was
dressed. Made a bet with myself just
now that you would. It's devilish an
noying, I assure you."
The young woman flew into a rage.
**Yoa are not a gentleman, sir!" she
"Then why don't you run along?
Why do you stand here and talk to a

man who is not a gentleman? A city
girl would have been hal way home by
this time, but you village belles never
lose an opportunity of talking zo a man. ' '
The young woman's eyes blazed. ' 'Ii
I knew your name and the place where
you are stopping," she said,, her voice,
wavering with anger, "my brother
would cali on you. "
"Here's my card, Miss-Miss at a
venture, understand, for you may be the
widow of a man who lost his life in the
defense of the honor of his horse. I am
holding forth at that hostelry of indi
gestion known as the Simmons House.
If you will excuse me, I will proceed. "
She took the card, glared at him,
and, on the springing feet of rage, hur
ried away. Several hours later, while
Higglegag was sitting in his room,
there came a knock at his door.
A tall, strongly formed young man
entered. He glanced at a card which he
held in his hand, looked up and asked :
"Is this Mr. Cyrus W. Higglegag:"
'/Yes, sir, of the firm of F. W. Rin
gleoup &C ., hardware dealers of Chi
cago, that are prepared to undersell
anybody in the market. Sit down. "
"I did net come for the purpose of
sitting down, sir. I"
"Just as cheap as standing up, as the
barnyard wit would say."
"I have come, sir, to demand an ex
planation. My sister informs me th3t
you insulted her, and, by"
"I don't think that I am acquainted
with your sister, sir. Sit down. "
"I will not sit down, d-n you! My

"What is her name, please?"
"My name, sir, is Norwood Hamp
4, " Are you related to the Hamptons of
Kentucky? I sold old Major Hampton a
hill of goods some time ago. Tall old
fellow, slightly bald, but as hospitable
as the lighthouse keeper of fiction and
as brave as-well, as a gentleman. I
take it that all gentlemen are brave. Sit
Mr. Hampton glared savagely at Hig
glegag, while one hand fumbled omi
nously under the tail of his coat
"I am tempted, without further ado,
to shoot your head off. You are a low
minded, cowardly wretch"
"Say, hold on a minute-just a min
ute-and if I don't make everything sat
isfactory, off goes my hezA. In a case of
this kind a man never regrets listening
patiently to an explanation. "
"Proceed, but be brief."
"All right, but you must not fly off if
I don't talk to suit you at first. I have
always understood that southern gentle
men have a fine appreciation of humor,
and I sincerely wish that you may give
play to a little of that admirable qual
ity, which I know you must have inher
ited- Without humor there could be no
high state of civilization. The savage
frowns; the philosopher laughs. Now,
Mr. Hampton, if you could but realize
my situation, I know that you could not
help but Birnie. Here you are, demand
ing an explanation relative to an insult
which you say that I have placed upon
jour sister, and here I am. a man who

zzi intentional wrong, it nus been
said that I am at times peculiar, and I'll
be banged if I haven't begun to believe
it. Tfiis morning, while strolling along
your main street, which I muse say is
very quiet, I saw a-pardon me-saw a
handsome young lady approaching, and,
looking back, I saw a woman was over
taking me, 'Now,' I mused, 'Ishall see
an exhibition of feminine peculiarity.
When those women pass, the young one
will look back to see how the other one
j is dressed, to see if she cannot detect
some outrageous incongruity in the way
her clothes hang. The other woman may
also look around, but I am betting on
I the younger one, ' Well, sir, the youn
ger one did turn around, just as I expect
ed, and, I don't know why, but surely
with no evil intentions, I spoke to her.
I don't remember exactly what I said.
It may have been insolent, but-well,
now here, suppose that men were to
turn around to criticise the hanging of
each other's pantaloons, wouldn't it
warrant any woman in speaking to us
of the disgraceful practice?"
Hampton sat down. After a few mo
ments he said, "The affair is ridicu
"Of course it is."
"While you did not mean any insult,
Mr. Higgiegag, you should not have ad
dressed her, even though your remarks
had been pleasant."
"You are right, Mr. Hampton. No
ene can deny that. I am sorry now, but
the deepest threats of direst conse
quences would not have prevented me
from speaking to her at the time. Ever
"Greatest commercial achievement
the age has seen. Why, sir, there's
nothing that Chicago will not under
take. And do you know what has made
that town? The municipal patriotism,
if I may use such a phrase, of her peo
ple. A Chicago man may not have time
to talk to you about himself or his
father, but he will stand bareheaded in
the rain and talk to you about Chicago.
That's the way to make a town. Talk
it up. Never let the subject get cold. In
business here, Mr. Hampton?"
"Yes, agricultural implements."
' 'Never handled the Stagwell plow,
' 'Our firm is manufacturing it now.
The Michigan, Ohio and Illinois farmers
are delighted with it. There has been a
great improvement in plows within the
past few years, not a revolution, under
stand, but such a reduction in price that
the old cast plow, which has so long been
the stand by of the small farms solely on
account of its low price, is about to be
driven from the market. Still use a
great manv cast plows round here, don't
"Yes, the poorer class of farmers."
' 'Ah, hah ! And it seems that the poor
er class is in the majority. Now, here's
a steel plow," taking up a catalogue
and turning to a well printed cut, "that
we are actually selling at $2.75. Just
think of it, $2.75. The farmers have
never before had such an opportunity
as this. Why, it's marvelous-simply
marvelous ! Good steel, hard oak wood.
Look at the shape of that beam. There's
no doubt about it, the man who intro
duces this plow to the farmers of this
state is going to make a fortune. The
only way to get rich, Mr. Hampton, is
to take hold of a good thing while it's
new, before it has become common
property. Look at Chicago. Snatches up
every new invention. It used to be that
oor inventors were compelled to go to
Europe to get money enough to bring
out their inventions. Now they come to
Chicago. That plow, sir, for 2.75.
Look at the shape of that moldboard.
The old fashioned plow, you understand,
turns the dirt clear over, while this sets
it upon edge, keeping the soil compara
tively near the surface, where it affords
mest nourishment to the plant. As
young and active a business man as you
are ought not to take a back seat for any
citizen in this town. Let me send you a

"What, not sell 100? I tell you
what's a fact, Hampton, you can run
out every other plow. No question about
"Well, you may send me 100."
"The northern farmers are delighted
with this plow, I tell you, and the soon
er the farmer of this state follows the
northern farmer-now, here, the cheap
ness of this implement places it within
arm's length of every negro farmer in
this state. You just advertise that you
sell the celebrated Stagwell steel plow,
manufactured by Ringleoup & Co. of
Chicago, and you will see that it will
take more than 200 to stock the market.
Shall I put you down for 200?"
"Yes, go ahead."
"All right. I'll order them shipped
at once. Don't be in a hurry. "
"I must get back. My place of busi
ness is down on Main street. If you have
time, drop in and see me. "
"I'll do so. By the way, present

Hampton entered a room where a
handsome girl sat musing.
"Well," she said, looking up with

"Is it possible that you have had a
business transaction with a man who
has grossly insulted me? Oh, Norwood. ';
She burst into tears and sprang to
her feet. "As my father is dead and
my brother is no longer a man, I must
be my own avenger. I will call on him.
I will cowhide him as he deserves to be!
Ali the Hampton spirit is not dead. "
She took down a riding whip, turned
to her brother and said :
"Am I to go alone?"
"If you go, yes. "
"Don't you feel like a whipped cur,
"No, can't say that I do."
"Merciful heavens! Is it possible that

j from the room.
There came a nervous tapping at
Miss Hampton entered.
"Are you the young lady I saw this
morning? Sit down."
? 'I have come, sir' '
"Yes, I see. Your brother was here
just now, and I am greatly indebted to
him. These temporary fits cf melan
choly are awful. All about a girl
beautiful creature; dead now. Oh, how
I loved her! Last time I saw her she
was looking back at me. Horse rail
away with her and killed her. Yon have
come to whip me? Well, well, so bo it.
Oh, Dora Clyde, Dora Clyde, did I
think- Sit down, please. Pay no atten
tion to my rambling remarks. To die
to die of love ! There, put your whip
down. In the night strange whisperings
come to me, a breath warm with love,
but the icy morning breaks, aud I see
the frost's fantastic dance marks on the
window pane. Were you ever in love?"
"I fear, sir, that I have wronged
you," said Miss Hampton. "I did not
know that you were suffering. You
must pardon me. Good by. "
Wheu Miss Hampton returned home,
her brother, who was still sittiug in the
room, looked up and said :
"Why, Norwood, that poor man is
grieving himself to death about a girl
"He is, just as sure as you live. I
never saw such melancholy in a human
"And I never saw such business."
"Oh, you are mistaken. Perhaps he
talked to you of plows because he saw
the girl on a horse-not exactly that,
but probably he did not know what he

and, by the way, he told me to offer
you his a'pologies. "
"Why didn't you tell me? If you
had told me, I wouldn't have gone to
see him. You ought to be ashamed of
"I rather like him, Ella, and VU tell
you what we'll do. We'll invite him to
supper tomorrow evening. ' '
"I don't know about that. It wouldn't
seem exactly right, would it?"
"I think so. The whole affair has
been so ridiculous that anything would
be appropriate now.: '
The next morning Higglegag called
on Hampton at the store, and when in
vited to supper heartily agreed to come.
Hampton and his sister lived alone
in an old red brick house almost cover
ed with vines. There were many shrubs
in the yard, and along the paths ro
mance strolled hand in hand with quiet
When they sat down to the table,
Miss Hampton, looking at Higglegag
with an expression of tenderest sym
pathy, told him that he must make
himself perfectly at home.
"I shall make myself near enough at
home to feel, at ease," he replied, "but
shall not be so much at home that I may
fail to remember that it is being here
and not there to which I am indebted
for so pleasant an evening. "
"You are a shrewd flatterer as well
as, " glancing at her brother, "a sharp
"All sharp business men, Miss Hamp
ton, are shrewd flatterers, but they are
also men who believe that a timely
statement of an effective truth is worth
more than a groundless compliment."
She looked at her brother and, catch
ing his mischievous eyes, smiled.
"Thc average Chicago man, I am
told," she said, "does not read manv
"The average man, no matter where
you find him, is not devoted to books,"
he replied. "The Chicago man may not
read many books, but he thinks a great
deal. While some men are worrying
over a theory advanced in a book the
Chicago man is watching the great kite
of this morning's thought and now's
"/ auk if 1 have offended youf
action-the daily newspaper. Today he
sees exploded or verified the bookworm
theory that will be advanced next year. "
"Do you like poetry, Mr. Higglegag?"
"Well, yes, successful poetry. In
fact, I like anything that is a success
and deplore everything that is a fail
"What do you think is the highest
aim in life?" she asked.
"Success in any praiseworthy under
taking, to make the best possible living,
to respect everything that is true and
reject all shams. "
The evening was an enjoyable one,
but when Higglegag had gone Miss
Hampton could not help thinking that
he had lost much of his air of romance.
While she sat musing her brother said:
"He seems to have forgotten to bring
that melancholy expression of eye along
with him. "
"Norwood, why would you destroy
the budding memory of a pleasant even
ing by making such a coarse remark?"
"Why budding memory?"
"Because the event is so recent that
it has not had time to unfold into a
flower of recollection."
"Humph, Ella, he must have impress
ed you. Pity he does not add dry goods
to his line of plows. "
"Pity that some one who is strong
enough dees not give you a plowline,"
she good naturedly replied. "Wonder
how. long he will be in town?" v , .
"Haven't heard him say, hut until
he teaches all our merchants how to be
come wealthy, I suppose."
The next afternoon, while Miss
Hampton was walking in the flower
garden, Higglegag came along and stop
ped at the fence.
"Looping up nature's expressions of
"Why, Mr. Higglegag, that is really
a poetic idea, ' ' she replied. "One would
hardly have expected it from"
"A Chicago man," he suggested.
"I didn't say that," she rejoined.
"You are fond of flowers undoubt
"Yes, successful flowers."
They both laughed and caught thrill
ing glimpses of each other's eyes.
"How long do you expect to remain
in town?" she asked.
"I don't know exactly. The house
owes me a vacation, and I have written
"I did not think that Chicago men
"Yes, they do when they have been
successful. ' '
"Won't you come in and sit down;
Brother will be home pretty soon. "
He went is, but instead of sitting
down strolled with her in the garden,
and although several hours passed be
fore Hampton came Higglegag waited
until he did come. In fact, he staid
until after supper. During the next few
weeks the Chicago man cabled, in the
sly opinion of Hampton, with senti
One evening while Higglegag and
Miss Hampton were strolling along a
quiet and perfumed street, where roses,
heavy with richness, hung over the
fences, the girl, with sudden and seem
ingly unpremeditated change of subject,
' 'It may be a painful memory, and
perhaps I do wrong in speaking of it,
but you have not told me anything of
of-that young lady. "
"Which young lady?"
"Why, that Miss Dora Clyde. Don't
you remember speaking of her the first
day I saw you?' '
"Oh, yes, that was all put up. I mean
that it was a pretense. "
"I didn't think that you would be so
"Stood me in hand to practice a lit
tle deceit on that occasion." They had
reached Hampton's gate. "I didn't
want to be whipper by the loveliest
creature I- Have I oiiended you?"
She had quickly stepped inside and
closed the gate and had turned her back
"I ask if I have offended you?"
' 'Are all sharp business men shrewd
flatterers?" she asked.
"Hang those formal expressions. El
la- By the way. Hampton, I-I-hang
it! I was about to tell your sister that I
love her and ask her to be my wife, but

goes. Ella, come back. Well, goodby. "
He called again the next evening.
"I ought not to let you come in,"
said Ella, when she met him at the

"Not that, but I didn't want you to

can become engaged I fear that the

Women and Newspapers.
Frances Willard urges women to read
the newspapers. Talking on the subject
lately, she said, "Women are a set of
passivities on that subject as a class,"
and adds: 'I am never more annoyed
for my 'sect' than when the newspaper
boy goes trotting through at full speed
if he finds the car contains chiefly wo
men, never dreaming that they may
want a paper. I clutch his sleeve with a
vim and buy one of every variety he
has, and ask him what he is thinking
about to lose patronage in that way.
Gossip is nothing but small news, the
nickels, pennies and dimes, while the
newspaper deals in dollars and V's and
X's. So it widens the mind more to read
the newspapers than to gossip about the
The Face of the Child.
I dare say 1 may have told you what
Tennyson said of the Sistine Child,
which he then knew only by engraving.
He first thought the expression of his
face, as also the attitude, almost too
solemn even for the Christ within. But
some time after, when A. T. was mar
ried and had a son, he told mo [that
Raphael was all right; that no man's
face was so solemn as a child's full of
wonder. He said one morning that he
watched his babe "worshiping the sun
beam on the bedpost and curtain. "

Across the aisle from the men was a
woman who showed enough gold every
time she opened her mouth to make a
man want to leave home and try his
fortunes in the Klondike. Two of her
upper teeth had been replaced by
pieces of burnished metal, and one of
her lower teeth also had a 22 carat

only one gold tooth, but she kept it
