A CHRI5TUKE MAN.
Deubttess you have read "The Little
Mlnister" and perhaps also "Sentl
rueutal Toaiiay," by J. M. Barrie. tbe
noted writer of Scotch stories.
If so, you must know Barrie has a
great and tender heart.
Hia llfe's bappiness was cruelly
blighted. Ile married a wife whom he
loved with all bis great nature. She
probably did not love bim. At least
ahe was antrue to him. Sbe was not
only guIKy, but boasted of lt.
A "frleod" whom Barrie had belped
ap in the world was the betrayer.
What would you have done?
Yeu wouid have doubtless given the
woman scorn for scorn and secured a
dtvorce, or, if you are a violent man.
you might have kllled ber and ber be?
trayer and been exonerated by a jury
on tbe plea of "the unwritten law."
What did Barrie do?
Ra forgave tbe woman and tried to
And be simply did what Jesus did
when that woman was brought to him.
Jesus, you remember, said to the ac
cusers. "Let him that Is without sin
cast the first stone." And he wrote in
the sand while the men slunk away
and, rising. said, "Neither do I con
detnn thee; go and sin no more."
Barrie said, "STAY AND SIN NO
Kevertheless. dcspite the Cbrlstlike
action of this great man, springing as
it did from a sore and bruised beart,
tha world vents its contempt and calls
him "weak" and a "coward."
Be had aolemnly promised to "love
and cherish" his wife until deatb part
ed them. And be could not forget
what ahe had once been to him. And?
Instead of ahowlng his weakness he
ahowed a tremendous strengtb of char?
acter as well as a tremendous love
when, bltterly wrooged, he forgave his
wife and tried to help her to retrieve

seemed to have nine Iives.
Once they left Peter on the battle

neglected and helpless. Fiually tbe ne

Maybe the feminine diplomacy comes
as a heritage from the woman of the
stone age. who had notbing but ber

the primitive man.
The mere man who tries to beat n
woman at her own game will get left.
There may be exceptions.
A few women of today, a reversion
to type, will allow a man to bully and

Versatility and Cleverness of a
Shrewd Scotch Lad.
FOOLED THE CONNOISSEURS.
Ha Poured Forth Hia Extraordinary
Cocumenta In Profuaion to Supply
the Oemand and Was Finally Ex
poaed by a Simple Little 81 ip.
From the days of Isidor Mercater,
who forged letters of the blshops of
Itome wiUi sucb skill and succesa tbat
they were treasured for centuries iu
the Romau archlves, to the days of
Ircland. tbe notorious forger of Shake
speareau plays aud letters, and Cbat
terton. the clever and ill fated boy
who died miscrably iu his atttc. there
have never been wantiug unpriucipled
meu who could forge ancient mami
scripts so cleverly that leadmg experts
have been decelved.
But for versatlllty aud clcverness
none of these forgers of past centuries
could approach the cleverness of a
young Scotchman who years ago pro
duced a long succession of forged man
uscripts whlcb, corapletely baffled the
couuolaseurs of tbe world. The true
and full story of these remarkable
forgerles is almost unknown and is so
extruordinary that it may well be told.
It was in Edinburgh that this ln
comparable forger practiced his arts,
and it was by an accldent that be wu*
temptcd to embark on a career which,
after a spell of great success, Involved
him ln dlsaster. One day the prlucl
pnl of an Edinburgh firm of lawyers
told one of his clerks to clear out sev?
eral boxos full of old documents, the
accumulatlon of mnuy years. Among
them were several documents aud au
tograpbs the value of which the clerk
was quick to recognlze, and he had no
dlfflculty ba flndlng purcbasers for
them. As tbe supply was Umlted and
tbe demand constantly Increaslng it
occurred to him to supplemcnt the gen
uine documents with others of ahis
own manufacture, and as he developed
a remarkable skill ln forgiug and had
already won the coufideace of a largo
number of cojlectora he found lt easy
to dlspose 0f as ixxtxny forgerles aa he
could produce at very profitable pricea.
Many of them were sold to collectors
ia different parta of tho world, othera
jwere dlsposed of by auctlon. and tho
remalnder were pawned and sold as
anredeemed pledgvs. These forgerles
covered a very wide range and iuclud
ed autographs and letters by Crom
well, Mary, queen of Scots; James VI.
Prince Charlie, John Knox. Rob R:<ny!
Burns, Scott, Thackeray, Cflrlylu, Balis
bury, Gladstone, Lord Nelson and
many otber men of note as well as
vast quantitlcs of Jacobite. corrcspond
So cleverly were the forgerles exo
cnted that tbe largcst purehasor of
Scotfs letters was a gontleman who
aa a boy bad carrled most of the great
author's manuscrlpts from Abbotsford
to hia Edlnburgh publlshers and was
as famlllar with Scott'8 handwritlug
as his own, and the boad of the firm
that published Lord Byrou's works
purcbased forty-sevcu letters purport
lng to be Lord Byron's for the sum of
?126 7a. Cd. A very large collectlon of
these manuacripta was purchased for
a aum of over ?4,000 and presented to
the Leuox library. New York. where
they were for some time regarded with
reverence as the chlef trcaaure of the
library, and another collectiou was
presented to the city of Edlnburgh.
Although these forgeries were pour
ed on the market ln such profuaion, no
suaplcion aeema to have been arouscd.
They were accepted without question
by the experta and found ready pur
chaaers at large prlces. Whether the
forgor's succcss made him cnreless or
whether it was due to one of those re
morkable overslgbts to which the most
skillful crlmlnals soem liable and
whieh bring their career to a close, the
forger waa at last exposed through a
mlstake of which such a clever man
should searcely have been capable.
Among the many forgerles he pro
doced a pocm sigued by Robert Burns.
lt was ealled "Tbe Toor Man's Pray?
er" and opened with this stanza:
Amldst the more lmportant tolls of state,
The counsels laborlng ln the patrlotlc
Though Europe from thy volce expect her
And thy keen g-lance eztend from polo
This poem, which conslsted of nine
teen verses, might well have escaped
detection with the reat but for tbe
faet that a gentleman to whom the
poem was shown discovered tbe iden
tlcal verses ln the London Magazine
of 1760 in a poem addressed to the
'Eart of Cbatbam by one Slmon llodge,
Thus it appeared that if the verses
were actuaUy written by Burns the
ipoet must have opened them under
the pseudonym of Slmon Hodge at the
?ery immature age of a poet of seven
years. Snspiclon once aroused. doubt
was at once cast on the bundreds of
other documents which had emanated
,from the same source. The Lenox col
lectlpn was submitted to tbe experts
of the British museum and pronouueed
"a worthless lot of forgerles," and col
'lectors all the world over awoke to the
ipainful dlscovery tbat their treasnres
of oid manscrlpts were scarcely worth
the paper they were written on. The
forger's career was brought to a sud
den termination. He was brought up
\tor trial and sentenced to a term of
imprlsonment. thus closing a career of
forgery which for darlng, cleverness
