"When he put down the coffee, he leaned over and asked in a deferential vrav if I -would mind staying awhile he -wanted to talk to me on a "mattah vrhich is much -wcrrhaent tub. rae, sub." Of course I said I'd stay, and I waited -with not a little curiosity to hear what Uac.e Reuben had to say. That it was a por tentous affair which weighed upon hin was too evident. Fiaally the place wa3 empty, save for my presence, and Uncle Reuben came over to me snd set him wearily down. "FTis eyes were shining with the resolve of some great purpose, Ict he approach ed it cautiously. "I reckon yuh 'member, suh, 'bout Ma jeh Bazt&h comin to New Yawk luh live?" I noddv -assent. I remembered the night when he and Uncle ReaiK u met for the first time since Reuben had gone into the war as a body servant, and I remembered how Uncle Reuben had fed his impoverished old master throegh the courses of the best dinar his place could lay without ever giving the master an idea that ho was receiv ing charily. I had never forgotten the tenderness of Reuben's attest iocs to the man who had once owned him, body and souL "Yah 'member him, an I wan' tnh as yuh advice lout uh mattah censamin 'im. It's this way, sah. Yuh see, Majah Baxtah, he's uh gemman. He ain' nevah use tuh wuk uv no kin, an he fin it mighty hahd tuh git 'kmghyah in JTew Yawk whah evabedy wak faw what he git.

I want yuh tuh lock at this faw me. " Uncle Reuben Wvit down into some mysterious recess behind bis apron and drew cut a small beck carefully wrap ped about with a long string. Taking a precautionary Icok about the room, be laid it down in front of me. It was a bankbook, and it showed a balance in favor of Rerben Baxter of Tennessee of a fraction over $o, 000. "That's whut I save outen thu busi ness hyah, yah know. Thu gemmen whut decs me thu honah uv comin hyah faw uh canvasback pays me putty well, an I'se been layin way some uv it all thu time, trmkin some day I might be needin sumpin ef I wan' tuh go home. Putty nigh 'nough, thah tuh buy uh plantation, ain' they?" "You might get a fairly good place with that, Uncle Reuben. " "An ef I had twic't cz much I could git twic't ez good uh place, couldn't I?' "Yes, perhaps mora than twice as good." "Yuh knows anythin 'bout these stocks they sell down Wall street way? Gemmen talk lot 'bout 'em one day, an nex' day sell 'em faw twic't ez much?" "They are dangerous things to med dle with. Uncle Reuben. Sometimes you pay a price for them one day and the next they are worth nothing at all " "Yessuh, I reckon so, but ef I bought tha' much wo'th one day and they wa'n't wnth nothin thu next, nobody would know nothin 'bout it 'cept you an me, would thev?" "No." "Then I mas' tell yah. Yuh know I kr.rn' nevah go back home tuh thu Rax tah's tell I've fixed it 'bout tha' time I tuk SQstah Tern Baxtah's hess in thu wah an got him killed. I tole you 'bout that. "Well, I wuz thiWHn tha' ef I had twic't tha' much money I might go back home wiv my head up. " I tried persuasion with Uncle Reu ben, teil-ng him of all the certain dan gers of stock gambling, but nothing would move him front his pnrpese. He was steadfast in his detenu. ::nricn to put that $o,000 in some sort 1 1 specula tion in Wall street in an effort to dou ble it. As I was his ocly friend who had in the past kept his cenfidences sacred he appealed to me. It hurt him when I refused to handle his money in the street. I knew of a particularly good thing in Cordage just then, and, having much confidence in it, I finally consented to act as Reuben's agent in the matter, and did. His bank roll went into Cordage- Fortune dees sometimes favor a good cause, and Cordage was the only thing in the street which showed activi ty. It went up and up. Within a week I sold Reuben's stock at a rough profit of 2.000 and dined that night on a suc- culent bird out of season. Uncle Reuben was radiant and flew about his place like a boy. I waited far him, and he hung over the table with an attention that was almost devotion. When we had a chance to talk, he in quired all about how it had been done, and Ihad to go into all the details of a Wall street deal. There was none of the passion of gain or of the gambler in his eager attention, just the passion of an accomplished purpose. It was good to see him. Weeks affer, when the winter snows had come and. Uncle Reuben's was a refuge from the storm at the dinner hour, I sat silently ever a "madeery.'' J n& sank quietly into a chair opposite and pointed across to a gentleman en grossed in his dinner. "Thah's ma lawyah ovah thah. " "Do you nave a lawyer in the restau rant business, Uncle Reuben?' "Sometimes need 'em, sub. He's uh pow'ful smaht man. He do uh lot uv things faw me. " Then he was silent for awhile. "What do you use a lawyer far, Uncle Reuben." "Oh, jes' doin things I kain' do ma se'f. Goin tuh places I kain' go wivout leavin ma bus'ness. flighty handy folks is lawyahs!" The talk lapsed, and I went cn witn the cigar and the wine. It suddenly go curred to me, "Reuben, how is lajor Baxter getting on these days?" "Like uh eemman, sub. He's down on his plantation." "I thought he'd lost his plantation?" "Yessuh, he did onct, but he got it beck again. Some uv his kin folks whut he didn' know up in middle Ten'see died an lef ' hi eiht thousand dol lars. " Charles E. Trevathan in New York Journal Uia "little Feller." "I happened to be down in my cellar the other morning when the ash man came around to collect the ashes," said a gentleman who resides on Second ave nue. " was opening a barrel of great red apples at the tini, and when the big, dust covered and necessarily untidy man came Dacs witn tne empty asn barrel I picked up an apple and held it out toward him, saying as I did so: " ' Wou't yon have an apple?' "He tcofc is eagerly, saying as he did so: " 'Thank ye, eir. I've a little feller at home who'll be tickled to death to git it. I most always find something or other in the ash barrels to carry home to 'im at night, but it ain't often I git anything equal to this big apple. I tell ye the little feller's eyes will shine when he sees it. ' "I don't know bow many times that day ray thoughts were cf that big, rough banded fellow, with that apple pat awav so carefully in his pocket for that 'little feller.' "When evening came, I thurght Gf the 'little feller' who was on the look out for the big, dust covered father with the calloused end soiled hands, but with the true heart and the kiad!v won! that made him a king in the eyes of that 'little feller.' "These 'little fellers' glorify and beautify many a home in which poverty abides. But human affections can sweetly and patiently endure toil and rags and poverty when there is a 'little feller' to meet and greet the father when the long day is done." Detroit Free PrESS. Future of the X Kay In Surgical Work. The future development of the X ray phenomena will undoubtedly be in the direction of surgical diagnosis. It is as great a boon to mankind as the inven tion cf the ophthalmoscope, and just as the latter instrument has proved its worth from the first day to this and has saved thousands of people from total blindness, so will the X ray be benefi cial to the human race and save life and limb of thousands of sufferers. It will, cf course, need to be greatly im proved. The one essential quality which so far prevents applying it to the densest part of the body with perfect success is its propensity for traveling in straight lines, piercing or rather being entirely absorbed by intervening bodies. Light rays do not necessarily go through all substances, as is well known, and they are net all absorbed, except when falling cn certain substances, which are called from their appearance dead black. It being practically impossible to reflect X rays to any great extent, we might still resort to diffusing them that is, to allowing them to be thrown beck from any surface in a more or less regular way. Such a feat would enable us to inspect special sections of the body, which we are not now able to in spect, with considerable accuracy. New York Sua. I Effectual Prayer. There is an awful amount of so called prayer that is only from the throat out- ' ward; it begins nowhere and ends in nothing. Such pointless repetitions of stereotyped phrases must be as weari- 1 seine to Gcd as they are unprofitable to the uttercrs. There must be pith, point and purpose as well as faith in every effectual prayer. At an evangelistic meeting for "roughs" over in New York, when the leader called on same , one to pray, a hard looking character in ! the crowd arose and said: "0 Lord, for give me for being a bad man, and please excuse me.

HALL Xlce Assembly Roosis and Spacious Cabi net Tor Eellcs of the Civil "War Re sult of Fifteen. Xears of Htc. Work by the Veterans. Chicago Grand Army veterans have the finest assembly rooms to be found anywhere in the country. They have not yet occupied their new quarters, and it may be some time before they do eo, for their new home is so grand and im posing as to architecture and so rich in decoration that to provide appropriate and suitable furniture for it will cost a small fortune, and the veterans are won denne where the money is to come from. The new hall will be dedicated on May SO. It was through the efforts of the Grand Army .Memorial association that their magnificent new quarters were ob tained, and it was only after 15 years of hard and persistent work by all the Chi cago posts that the object was accom plished. In 1SS1 the Chicago posts awoke to a realization of the fact that. while manv other states and cities bad erected colossal monuments and elabo rate memorial buildings, neither the state of Illinois, that had furnished a Lincoln, a Grant, a Logan and 250,000 men, nor Chicago had ever erected a suit able monument or memorial building in honor of those Illinois heroes who lost tt ir lives fighting for the Union. So an association was formed to build a memorial hall. A Eite was selected on what was then known as Dearborn park. This was part of the old ort Dearborn military reservation which had been re served as public ground when the rest was cut up into lots and sold. It was supposed that the title to the property rested with the United States govern ment and had been so decided in court. The Grand Armv men were joined by the directors cf the Chicago Public li brary, which also wanted part of the nark as a site for a new library build ing. The library people wanted the south two-thirds, and the Grand Army men asked for the north third. A bill embodying theso requests was presented to congress, but it failed. About this time, howeTer, Justice Harlan decided that the state of Illinois JUDGE KJRH HA WES. and not the federal government was the real owner of the land, and the efforts of the association were directed toward the state legislature. Judge Kirk Hawes, president of the Grand Army Hall and Memorial association, secured the passage of a bill authorizing the Soldiers' home in Chicago to erect the memorial on the north quarter of Dear bom park. This was in July, 18S9, but it was found that it was impossible to raise the necessary funds. At this crisis the directors of the Pub lic library came forward and proposed to join the Grand Army in securing the passage of another bill authorizing the erection of a library building covering the whole square, in consideration of which the library directors were to con struct in the north end of the building the memorial hall, which the veterans did not have funds to erect. The bill was passed, and the library association agreed to lease the ball to the Grand Army at a nominal rental foi 50 years, after which it should revert to the library, but-was to be kept as a me i - morial hall forever. In a most satisfactory manner have the library directors fulfilled their promise- The hall is not only the handsom est section of the new library building, but is said to be, without exception, the haudsomest hall of the kind in the world. The memorial hall and other rooms cover a floor space of 60,000 square feet. Besides the memorial ball there are eight smaller assembly rooms. The hall is located on the second floor and is approached through a magnificent corridor paved with mosaic marble and a grand marble staircase. A massive door of bronze and mahogany opens into the vestibule, whose walls and floor are of marble. The rotunda is 45 feet Equare, and from the mosaic floor to the beauti ful stained glass windows in the dome is a distance of 80 feet. The mervirial ball itself opens from the rotundt The walls, which are 60 feet high, are sheathed with green an tique marble ornamented and relieved by moldings of solid bronze. Enormous windows, reaching almost from the ceil ing to the floor, light the room and give it the appearance of being even larger and higher than it really is. In the pan els under the arches over the doors and windows are army and navy badges. Around the walls are to be placed in re lief the badges of every corps engaged in the war, while on the west wall will be a large badge of the Grand Army of the Republic, faced on the east wall by the seal of the (United States. The ceiling is also richly decorated. Around the hall are placed plate glass cases, in which will be stored the priceless relics of the great .tUuggle- which are now in tha possession cf the Chicago posts or which are to be collected in the future.

He was an extremely hand some, showy animal, with more than ordinary horse sense. Dan was a very fast walker an important requisite in a commander's charger but a disagree able accomplishment so far as his staff were concerned, as tneir norses m gen eral were kept on a slow trot. After the war Dan became the family horse at General Mcdellan's country home in Orange, and seemed to be proud of his position, perxorming his duties well and easily. On one occasion, when driven to a neighboring estate by two ladies of the general's family, and left untied, as usual, at the door, Dan came to the conclusion that they had remained long enough for an afternoon call, so, declining to waste any more time there, he trotted back to his stable, carefully turning out to pass carriages and other vehicles met on the way home. Dan died and was buried in Orange. The general said of him; ' 'Dan was one of those horses that could trot all day long at a very rapid gait, which kept all other horses at a gallop. He earned from the aids the title of 'that devil Dan' a name that he justified an many a long and desperate ride before I gave up the command of the Army of the Potomac. Dan was the best horse I ever had. He was never ill for an hour, never fatigued, never disturbed under fire. The dear old fellow survived ihe war for many years, dying at a ripe old age in IS 79. No matter how long we might be parted once for nearly four years he always recognized me the mo ment we met again and in his own way showed his pleasure at seeing me. Even on the day Gf his death, which was a painless one, he still attempted to rise and greet me, but, unable to do so, he would lean his head against me and lick my hand. 2so soldier ever had a more faithful horse than I had in Daniel Webster."

To the query, Are young men who cannot, from religious convictions, play cards, dance or attend the theater apt to be popular with young women of re finement and education who indulge in sucn amusements, .toward. v. isos, m "Problems For Young Men" in The Ladies' Home Journal responds; "Why, certainly. Why not? The amusements in which a man indulges have nothing to do with his outward attractiveness or popularity. It is the way in which a young man carries him self in his deportment that makes or mars his popularity with girls or men. One of the most popular and delightful fellows I know in !ew York has never been inside of a theater, although he is 35 years of age. 2s or has he ever danced or played cards. He was a personal friend for ten years before I knew that his religious principles precluded his in dulgence in these amusements. Hi se cret is that be does not carry bis convic tions on his sleeve for everybody to rub against. And of his popularity with women, young and mature, I can assure you absolutely. He reads about the new plays and can, therefore, talk about them if they come up in conversation. If asked if he has seen a certain actor or play, he merely replies in the nega tive. Xever does he force his convic tions upon others. A young man's pop ularity with either sex rests upon some thing more than his forms of amuse ment. Amiability or manner, kindli ness, a pleasant address, a manly out look on life, honorable tirinciples all these go far toward insuring popular ity." Remarkable Story About AnK, A traveler returned from South Africa tells of a singular combat that he once witnessed in a deep forest in the heart of the dark continent Happening to cast his eyes toward the ground he no ticed a caterpillar crawling along at a rapid pace, followed by 100 or more small ants. Being quicker in their movements than the worm, the ants would catch up with the caterpillar, and one would mount his back and bite him. rasing for an instant, the caterpillar would turn his head and catch the ant in such a way as to kill it almost in stantly. This slaughter of their fellows did not seem to have any effect upon the attacking horde the place of the dead warrior being presently filled by another hero willing to sacrifice his life. After slaughtering a dozen or more of his tor mentors the worm began to show signs of fatigue, whereupon the ants made a combined attack At this the worm sought safety by climbing a stalk of grass, going up tail first and defending himself with his head and strong jaws. Seeing themselves outdone on that score the ants set to work and soon felled the stalk with their mandibles. When this was done, they all pounced upon the helpless worm and made short work of him.

A laap In His Pocket. .Not very many men carry lamps in their pockets, but there is at least one man who aces, and that is the lamp lighter on the elevated road. It is an alcohol lamp, like a section of btass cylinder, five or six inches long and an inch through, and with a slender tube two or three inches long, holding the wick, projecting at one end. The lamp lighter conies in at the front door of the car with his lamp lighted. With a rapid ease acquired by experience he lights the six lamps, seeming almost not to pause in his progress t branch the car.
