great cry. The paternal instinct
awoke with a rush that robbed him
of speech. But the girl understood.
She was the sort who could read men

and social success were of more vital
interest to Henry Yates than the ac

A lordling of depleted fortune but

and saw but did not conquer. Yatts
said the price wis too high , and his
daughter , curled up in his never-fail

But all this did not help matters
when Allen Houston appeared on the
horizon , and , so far as Edith was con
cerned , filled it complete ' . Young
Houston had a small patrimony a tre
mendous fund of ambition , and the
profile of a poot.
Henry Yates said "No , " Edith re

flung himself into the wilds of the
Edith did not grieve openly , but the
loving eyes of her father were not to
be deceived. He became restless and
anxious , and so they decided that New
York was unbearable and the sight of
New Orleans during the Mardi Gras
would do them both good.
Mr. Yates planned the trip without
consulting Edith. They would go to
'Memphis by rail and there board one
of the old-fashioned stemwheel riverboats -
boats for New Orleans.
Somehow , with the sting of social
failure and the mad rush of his busi

had known when he was only "Mr.

"I never realized how tired I was un

friend's voice. "
The next morning they went on
board the Aralley Queen. Yates thrill
ed as his foot touched the deck. He
walked briskly to the little window
on the saloon deck and exclaimed :
"Mr. Clerk. I want two of your best
rooms to New Orleans. "
A blue-coated figure came close to
the window , a strong , masculine hand
held out some keys , and a voice
which made Mr. , Yates start answered :
"The best two on board , Mr. Yates ,
and I hope you will find your trip
with us most pleasant and comfort
Mr. Yates glanced wildly toward the
shore. It was slipping away from
them. They were in mid-stream and
the man at the window was Allen
Retreat was impossible Graceful
capitulation was inevitable. Yates put
out his hand.
Thereafter he divided his time be
tween the deck , Avhich he paced with
his daughter , telling her lively yams
of his own days as a river-boat clerk ,
and the office , where he shared Hous
ton's preoccupation with his duties.
There was something familiar alxmt
It all the pleasant familiarity which
takes 10 years off a man's shoulder.
And Houston understood the work ,
just as Yates had understood it years
before. AVliere he had started , Hous
ton was starting.
Some times watching his daughter's
face , he wavered. But no ; it was im
possible. His own case had been ex
ceptional. All river-boat clerks could
not be millionaires , and Houston was
merely of a good , up-State family ,
without social standing in the world
where Mammon ruled.
Yet Mr. Yates found himself watch
ing young Houston curiously. He
wasn't half bad , this college-bred
youth , who could dispatch office duties
with ease , placate patrons who fret
ted at the slow method of travel , and
in an emergency could tell the deck
hands more things about their ances
try than Yates had dreamed of in
his own river life.
They had quit the bluffs , and cotton
had given way to cane and rice. In a

The old life had him in its clutches.
Down below they went. Away in
the stem the engines pounded. To
ward the bow the furnaces glowed.
Between the two. roustabouts had
gather to gamble their earnings. Some
of the negroes were already penniless.
Others were flushed and excitedby
Yates watched the scene for an hour ,
laughing at the apt remarks of the
gamblers. Wall street Avas forgotten.
Social ambitions died within him He
was again in Allen's place , a clerk
'without a future , without great hopes.
Suddenly he turned :
"Man. they are happier than I have
dared be since 1 stood where you are
to-day. I am wondering whether it is
wonh while the struggle , the knock
out blows one must give and take.
Mother Mississippi has been talking to

way. Edith told me once that money
was not all and I reckon she is
right. At any rate , you may ask her
if she still believes that. If she does ,
I won't stand between you. "
An hour later the boat slipped
around the crescent , past the coal
docks and the fruit docks to the
levees. The rush of the" water and
the rudely melodious voices of the
negroes singing at their work , mingled
with a strange harmony.

Edith Yates stood with her hand clasp

fixed on the quaint old city.

Horses Sen re and High.
"I have not known a period when
horses were so scarce and high , " said
T. E. Gilbert of Cincinnati at the Hotel
Barton. "I am in the business and
have of late been scouring Kentucky
and Ohio with a view of purchasing
a good-sized bunch , but had very poor
success. More people want to biry
than sell , and prices are at a point
where it is impossible for dealers to
make any profits. The country was
drained of horse flesh during our war
with Spain , and further depletion was
caused by the Boer war. It Avill take
several years to make up the deficiency ,
and high prices will continue. The au
tomobile craze has had no perceptible
effect on the demand for high-class
animals , and I do not believe that it
will ever get so violent as to make
people indifferent to the delight of sit
ting behind a pair of high steppers. "

Parorite ffood. of the Italians , and How
It Is Made.
The national food of the Italian is
macaroni. He keeps his native tastes
when he comes to America , and to
supply him and his fellow Americans
of other blood who have made his
favorite food one of their supplement
ary articles of diet , there are several
. factories in America. One of them ,
I in Boston , was visited by a Boston
, Herald Reporter , Avho writes thus in
regard to the making of macaroni.
Real macaroni is made of hard
Avheat of a semi-translucent sort
which grows in southern Europe and
Algeria , and which is richer in gluten
and other nitrogenous matter than
Macaroni is nothing but floor and
water , but It has to be carefully made.
The flour is mixed Avith boiling Avater
in a cylinder which converts it into
stiff paste. Then it rolled under a
huge granite Avheel which flattens it
into a smooth mass. The man at the
Avheel cuts it into squares and claps
it under the wheel again and again
until it is thorughly kneaded.
The dough then goes into an upright
metal cylinder closed at the lower
end with a thick disk of copper. This
is pierced with openings , through
which a plunge-piston squeezes the
dough into threads. The threads are
cut off at regular lengths and handed
to a man who hangs them on woo.den
In making spaghetti the holes are
small and the dough conies out in solid
strings. In the manufacture of mac
aroni the holes are larger and centered
by mandrels which make the tubes
hollow. Macaroni is also made Into
pastes of various shapes , alphabets
and thin strips , cut by machinery.
When the macaroni is shaped , it Is
sent up into a drying r'ooni , the small
pieces in trays , the long strips of ver
micelli , the thin , solid strips of
spaghetti , and the large hollow tubes
of macaroni on long poles the size of a
broomstick. Here a current of air
dries the paste.
Genuine macaroni always shoAvs the
bent ends where the long hairpin-
shaped lengths have straddled the
poles. Cheap imitations are made from
common flour , which is not glutinous
eonugh to bear its own Aveight , and
therefore is dried flat.
Real macaroni is tender , yellowish ,
rough in texture and elastic. It breaks
with a smooth , porcelain-like fracture.
AVhen it boils , as every cook knows ,
it swells to twice its sizo-awl does not
become sticky , but holds its tubular
form without collapse. It will keep
any length of time , and is a very

The Woman "Who Swims.
Swimming will do more to develop
perfect health in women than any
other form of exercise. It develops
the whole body symmetrically , loosens
ens the joints , gives free action to the
limbs. It Increases the lung capac
ity , inducing' de p breathing ; straight
ens the frame , throwing the chest for
ward and the shoulders back. The
woman who swims ffftias all this , and
in the gaining has mftch pleasure.
In the water she is suspended , with
out the least lundrance to the mo
tion of her body , she can move her
arms or legs In any . direction and
bend the trunk freely. The different
methods of swimming , all of which
she Avill learn in time , bring into use
all the muscles of the legs and arms.
A SAvirumer soon learns deep breath
ing , as a deep breath Avill keep the
body at the surface of the water Avith-
out , the extra effort required by the
use of the legs and arms.
The positions of the swimmer at
first seem strange to a woman : the
disuse of certain muscles has degen
erated them , and when she enters the
water to swim she feels no Inclina
tion to use muscles which she has not
used since early childhood the mus
cles of her Avalst and abdomen. AVhat
she does try to do i to make the same
restricted motions that she is forced
to make ordinarily , the knees together
and the little jerky strokes of the
arms and legs. She soon sees the
folly of this , however , and in time
acquires the long , sweeping , graceful
stroke of legs and arms which comes
to the proficient swimmer by prac
Who has ever watched the actions
of a professional swimmer and noted
the long sweep of the limbs , the re
covery of the arms for the new stroke ,
and the Avide , powerful swing of the
legs , without a desire to acquire a
little skill and power , combined with
a like grace of motion. Macfadden's

"I weigh man's moral carat on the

"A man , when he is perfectly nice and
clean , tastefully dressed and not noisy ,
is bad enough , but a man who wears
his hair in his eyes and over his collar ,
manicures outside his own room , leans
around , sits with his feet higher than
his head and all that is unbearable. If

competition has srroyed his useful

it simply makes him twice a pet. Now ,
having reduced him to his loAvest
terms , since it was only a question of

Some otherwise intelligent pcopla

We are not sure whether they think
trees require for their welfare treat

and telegraph poles , or that they re
gard a tree In a city street as a public
enemy -which should be destroyed , says
the New York Tribune. They surely
must hold one or the other of these
views , or else their actions grossly
belie their beliefs.
Here are some examples of the treat
ment given to trees on a choice resi
dence street In one of the best parts of
the city : A few of the trees hare each
as much as. a couple of square yards
of open soil about them , grassless , ot
course , and packed as hard and made
as impervious to water as so much
well-puddled clay. In some cases the
open squares originally left about the
trees have been carefully filled in with
bits of flagging , close up to the trees
all round. In some cases the squares
have been carefully filled with concrete
or artificial stone , fitting water tight
if not air tight around the trees. In
some cases the large tree trunks have
carefully been trimmed square with a
broadax so that the straight edges of
flag-stones may fit closely against
them. It may be added that these are
all fine specimens of elms , linden and
other trees. Befcre the sidewalks were
thus adjusted to their trunks they
were thriving almost as luxuriantly aa

a great deal less to maintain them in
that condition. Perhaps the people , too
might be varnished or coated from
head to foot with some waterproof and

Another Cure Ibr Consumption.
Consul General Mason of Berlin ic.
a recent report gives the composition
and effects of sanosin , the new rem
edy for consumption , which has had
a careful trial at Berlin with gratify
ing results. It was noticed by a traveler -
eler in Australia that natives used a
decoction of the leaves and roots of tlia \
eucalyptus as a remedy for consump
tion with good effect
, and that con
sumptives coming from a distance to
reside among the eucalyptus groves
were benefited. On this hint a chemist
compounded pulverized leaves and essential - '
sential oil of eucalyptus with powdered
charcoal and flour of sulphur and gave
his mixture the " "
name of "sanosin.
Owing to its volatility sanosin is put
up in sealed glass tubes that hold each
thirty-one grains. The patient breathes
in a closed room the fumes generated
by heating the contents of a. tube5" on
an earthenware plate by
means of an
