Cheedle has lately acquired a past, j
Out of his imagination he has built
up a lurid conception of his sinful
' bachelor self which frightens him.
The ether day I tried to reassure him,
quite unsuccessfully.
"My dear Cheedle," I said, "you have
nothing whatever to reproach yourseif
"Ah, if I could only believe that!" he
sighed out. "But you know as well as
I do whait sort of a life* I used to lead."
"Cloistral," said I.
"Hellish!" said he. "I was a devil of
a fellow. '
"Why, we used to call you the saint,"
I said.
"Of course," said- he. frowning, "it's
very friendly of you to talk that kind
of rot."
"But we did," I protested.
"Oh, in irony, you mean."
"No; in all sincerity. Of course, we
didn't let you know. We thought it
might offend you."
"No, my dear Wroughtnight," said he,
"let me give you a word in season."
"Thanks. But—as the servant girls
say—l never accept valuable presents
from gentlemen."
"This young man's craving after an
evil reputation is unhealthy in the ex
treme. You'll repent of it some day."
I was justly irritated. "It seems to
me," said I, "that it is you who is doing
the craving."
"I don't understand you," said he,
"You know you were a perfect Puri
"I don't deceive myself, old man."
"You kept your misdeeds pretty dark,
anyhow. Nobody ever found you out in
anything worse than a box at Melo
chrino's, or a Sunday at Brighton. Of
course, you sometimes left actresses'
photographs lying about; but we knew
where you bought 'em."
"Does any man ever buy actresses'
"W T ell, you were rather a cub then."
I admitted.
"This is a very painful discussion,"
said he.
"Oh, don't apologize," I murmured.
He sighed. "Old man, I'd like to see
you give up that sort of thing."
"Which sort of thing?"
"You know. The sort! of thing I used
to go in for."
"You mean cigarettes) and the Nation
al Sunday League?'
He sighed again. It was a diplomatic
evasion. "Marriage." said he, senten
tiously, "opens a man's eyes. He sees
things in a new light. He realizes how
wrong certain things are that he once
delighted in. To have a tender, trust
ing woman committed to his daily
"Oh, I say!" I exclaimed.
"You don't understand," said he.
"You have no responsibilities."
"I have friends," said I.
"I don't mind you saying that if you
think it smart." he replied with an un
conscionable air of leng-suffering.
"Look here, Cheedle, don't be an ass!"
I shouted.
"You remember Balaam's ass, Phil?"
"No. I think he must have been be
fore my time."
In spite of himself, he laughed. At
once the conve-rration became rational.
He was taking me home to dinner
Within sight cf the house he said:
"I am so glad you get on well with
my wife, Phil. If the subject of my—
my Past should ever crop up, be a true ;
friend, won't you?"
I promised. And a few days later
I rcdesmed my promise amply. I met
Mrs. Cheedle in Picadilly and she pined
fcr tea. It is not my fault if Mrs.
Cheedle thinks that tea in a Picadilly
shop is rather dissipated.
"I am going to scold you, Mr.
Wrcughtnight." she said, "for your
good. I think you are leading a very
useless life."
"It is useful to m?." I replied meekly.
"In fact. I don't quite see how I could
get on without it."
"You waste so much of your time."
"As time is not of value to me, that
Is not a great extravagance."
"You keep bad hours."
"Which are the bad hours, Mrs.
"As if I knew!" she cried. "You
smoke a great deal, too." '
"I confess it."
"You go to music halls."
"You belong to too many clubs."
"But I only frequent the others."
"You know too many people."

"I certainly begin to believe I am in

"Why don't you get married, too?"
"Marriage would not alter me," said
I gloomily.
"It has altered Josie."
"I beg your pardon, Mrs. Cheedle. It.
has not altered him in the least."
She grew pale. "W T hat do you mean?"
she gasped.

"A saint, Mrs. Cheedle," I cried, earn
estly; "an angel in trousers!"
"Don't be absurd," she said laughing.
"I assure you, Mrs. Cheedle," said I.
"that a more innocent man than your
husband does not walk this earth."
Extraordinary as it may appear, she
was greatly annoyed. "Nonsense!" she
saiid, sharply.
"It is true," said I simply.
"I know better!" she retorted. "There
is too,much that is evil in Josie, unfor
tunately." The last word sounded
dreadfully like an afterthought.
"There is no mere vice in him than
in a kitten," said I. "He was ailways
Like that."
"Of course, you are his friend. You
would be sure to say so. It is very loyal
and nice of you; but I You can't
deceive me."
Evidently no man is a saint to the
woman who loves him!
"I have no wish to do ap," said I.
"There is no need."
"My dear Mr. W r roughtnight," she
said, with thinly veiled impatience, "do
you honestly maintain that Josie is any
better, morally, than the average
"Incalculably better," paid I.
"Then you are mistaken."
"Really, I think not. We used to call
him The Paint."
"The Saint! How absurd!"
"It was a saying among us>, 'As in
nocent as Cheedle!' "
"Nonsense!' she said again, flushing
angrily. "I don't believe it."
I bowed and was silent.
"All men are more or less alike," said
I did not reply.
"Aren't the>% Mr. Wroughtnight?"
"Everything is as you say. Mrs. Chee

"Oh, was I rude? I beg your pardon.
Do be nice, Mr. W r rcughnight."
"You asked my opinion of Joseph
Saunders Cheedle. I gave it," said I,
"But you may be mistaken, Mr.
"Of course," said I. "I admit that.
If you don't mind. Mrs. Cheedle, we will
change the subject."
She looked at me gloomily for some
seconds. I don't think I ever spent a
duller afternoon. I saw Cheedle a day
or two later. His manner was repell
"Good God. man!" he cried. "What
have you been saying to my wife?"
"How should I know," I rejoined,
stung to exasperation.
"W T ere you drunk?"
"Of course I was! Why ask?"
"I beg your pardon, old chap. But,
really her attitude toward me is un
bearable lately. You know that pho
tograph of Lottie's?"
"The one you thought was Lottie's,
you mean. Th? man did you, Cheedle."
"Are you going to drag'up that old,
stupid argument again? Anyhow, the
wife got hold of it is this?"
said she. 'My cousin—in Australia.' I
replied. 'In tights?' said she. 'A fan
cy costume,' I said. 'Joseph Saunders
Cheedle,' said she, 'are you a miiksop or
a hypocrite? I did not like to plunge
on either alternative. 'What do you
mean?' I asked. 'Your friends will tell
you,' said sihe. So I came to you."
"She asked me about your Past the
other day." I mumbled. "And I told
her you hadn't got one. You haven't,

"I can see you overdid it," he growled.
And, after all, perhaps I did. —Edwin

General Gordon Thought It Was Off

' The following are the reasons for the
! theory thait the Garden of Eden is at or
near Seychelles. I could even put it at
! Praslin. a small isle twenty miles north
of Mahe. Allow that Genesis is not
allegorical; that Eden, its garden, its
two trees, did exist on this earth. Eden
is a digitriot, the garden is a spot chosen
in that district, the trees were actual
j trees, imbued for a time with spiritual
qualities; these trees, the bush, the ark,
the Tabernacle and temple differed
nothing from the same things in the
world except for the time during which
they were spiritually consecrated or set
apart for manifestations of God, or
Satan. God's consecration made things
which were equally clean, clean and
unclean; therefore I see no reason for
doubting that God did set apart the
two trees to be one of Life, the other
of Knowledge; or that God, when these
two trees should have fulfilled their
purpose, should have relegated them
back to their former ordinary tree po
1 thought there were two trees —actual
trees —which had been sacramental, and
had ceased to be so; and in Praslin,
near Seychelles, and only there in the
whole world, is a magnificent tree, curi
ous beyond description, called the
Prince of the Vegetable Kingdom. It
is unique in its species and on carth —
the Laodicean Seychellarum, or Coco
di Mir. This, I believe, was the Tree
of Knowledge. I then thought if the
one tree is to be found, so is the other,
and this I think is the Artocarpus in
cisa, or bread fruit. It is an humble
tree, of no great distinction, yet to an
observer it is as unique in its kind and
among trees as the other. This last
tree is only found in the Indian Ocean.
It is a life-sustaining tree, and, like
the other, is full of Scriptural types.
Having thought that these were the
two trees, then the question arose:
W here was the Garden of Eden? And
first came the information that Sey
chelles is of granite, and all the other
isiles out here are volcanic, granite be
ing the more ancient formation. Then
the Rev. D. Bury mentioned casually
that the verse Genesis ii., 10, could be
read that the four rivers flowed into
Eden, not out of it. I have been at the
source of the Euphrates, Tigris, etc.,
and unless the rivers were forced to
flow backward no spot could agree to
a central basin in those lands, while a
flood does not change features of 10,000
feet high. So I took the rivers Eu
phrates—as Euphrates., on which is
Babylon; Hiddekel —as Tigris, on which
is Nineveh (vide Daniel). They meet
and flow into the Persian Gulf. Baby
lon oppressed Israel —Nineveh oppressed
Israel. Required, two other rivers con
nected with oppression of Israel. The
question of whether ever a river came
down the Valley of Jordan into the Red
Sea is one which has been much dis
cussed. That an immense crevasse ex
ists from the source of the Jordan to
the Red Sea is the case; the depression
of the Dead Sea is the difficulty; the
ravines of Kedron and Gihon are very
deep. Taking my ground spiritually,
and the similarity of the name Gihon
with the brook of Jerusalem, I think
that they are the same. The or
Nile, flowed into the Red Sea; the Gi
hon. or Gihon Brook, flowed into the
Red Sea, joined, flowed down, met the
Euphrates and Tigris, united near Soco
tra, and the soundings shown end in a
basin 2,809 fathoms deep, which is
close to Seychelles. Cush is written in
margin for Ethiopia Cush was son of
Nimrod; his land was probably near
Babylon, now Bab-el-Mandeb. Perim

Superstitions About Cows.
One of the oddest comes from the
west coast of Ireland. There, when a
churning of rich, foamy milk returns
orly an insignificant scrap of butter,
the dairy maid never lays it to the wea
ther or the pasture. She knows instead
that her cows have been "overlooked."
That is to say. some greedy and con
scienceless rival has magically stolen
her butter. First, the greedy neighbor
waited for a saint's day. Then she
went at daylight to the highest point
outside the pasture, turned her back on
the sun, and just .as' it rose walked
backwards three times' in a circle, wav
ing her hands toward the grazing cows,
and saying "Come all to me! Come all
to me!"
The priests know all alx>ut the be
witchment since it falls to them to rem
edy the trouble. Some of them tell
astonishing tales regarding it. To un
do the charm the priest first blesses a
sprig of parsely, which is laid secretly
where the butter stealer must step over
it. Then, at the next churning in the
robbed dairy, the priest comes in re
peating a Latin anathema upon cv.'l
spirits and all their works. Pretty soon
the milk in the churn turns apparently
to blood. It is poured into a newly dug
pit and carefully buried. Then every
thing in and about the dairy is scoured
clean, a sprig of fairywort nailed over
the dcor, and no milk brought in until
after sunrise the next morning. The
next churning gives a double yield, and
the butter stealer is commonly laid up
for a week—whether in chagrin, or from
the turning upon herself of her ill prac
tice, nobody is quite certain.
Southern negroes have a cognate be
lief in the bewitchment of the churn to
make the milk "cry for silver." The
butter will come without it, heavy and
golden yellow, but will never, never
gather until a silver spoon or coin is
dropped in and churned vigorously for
five minutes. The wise folk explain that
the silver in the acid of the milk sets
up a sort of remedial galvanic action.
But they cannot explain away the be
lief likewise current among black dairy
maids that if heifer's first milk be
miiked on the ground, not only will the
flow fall, but the animal herself will
soon peak and dwindle away, a belief
that skeptic owners have sometimes
proved to their own cost.
If, instead, the first milk is caught in
a metal or earthern vessen —wood will
not do at all —poured on the heifer's
back and rubbed in with soothing words
she will thrive, become gentle almost
instantly, and be a good milker, secure
from anybody's spells.
The spells themselves' are most pic
turesque. Put a. red rag in the gap

is peeled wands of alder or witch hazel

to sleep.
How Elephants Cross a River.
It is a great sight to see a line of ele
phants crossing a river with steep
banks. They go down slowly, striking
the ground with their trunks before
each step, and never making a slip or
miss, although you feel every minute
as if they were going to take a header
into the water. Then they wade or
swim, as the case may be. and they
swim l>eautifully. not hesitating to
cross half a mile of deep water if need
I must say, however, that the sensa
tion of sitting on the back of a swim
ming elephant is the reverse of pleas
ant; you fancy yourself on an enormous
barrel which may roll round at any
moment and take you under. Besides
that, they swim so low in the water
you are sure of a wetting, which in In
dia means an excellent chance of fever.
Having crossed the stream, they must
climb to the top of the bank, and this
is the most peculiar, operation of all.
Down on their knees they go, and with
trunk and tusks dig out a foothold for
themselves, and so, step by step, work
their way to the top, their position be
ing sometimes like thalt of a fly climb
ing up a wall. As they reach the top
they give a lurch .sideways, and shoot
one leg straight over the bank, then
give a lurch to the other side and shoot
out the other leg in the same way.
which brings them into the position of
a boy hanging by his arms from the
edge of a roof. Then they come to their
knees, and, finally, wiUi a great scram
bling and kicking of their hind legs,
bring themselves to level ground again.
In spite of these perilous ascents and
descents I never knew an elephant to
miss his foothold, although there was
a case where one of the herd got stuck
in the # mud and sank gradually deeper
and deeper until only his head and part
of his back could be seen. The rajah
ordered ten other elephants to be
brought up, and they were hitched to
the unfortunate animal, and by pullling
together at the given word brought
their bellowing) comrade out of the mud
with a plomp like the pop of a-thousand
ton cork. —Pearson's Magazine.
Archaeology in the Soudan.
The opening up of the Soudan offers
a rich field for the archaeologist, and
Egyptology will be enriched by many
important "finds." A large number of
monuments of Egypt's power which
have never been thoroughly investigat
ed lie scattered about Upper Nubia.
The temples of Soleb, the ruins of the
great Cushite cities Napata and Meroe,
of which the latter is 560 miles above
Astsouan, between the fifth and sixth
cataracts, the antiquities at El-Mesaou
rat, eight hours' journey from Shendy,
are all waiting for the archaeologist. In
fact, it is almost a virgin country, for
its antiquarian treasures have not been
investigated since CaiUiaud, the French

"Mamma, if I had a hat before I had
this one, it's all right to say that's the
hat I had had isn't it?" "Certain!;,
Johnnie." "And if thlat hat once had a
hole in it, and I had it mended.
I could say it had had a hole
in it, couldn't I?" "Yes, there would
be nothing incorrect in that." "Th
it'd be good English to say that the hat
T had had had had a hole in it, wouldn't
It?"— Boston Journal.
Rev. John Reid. Jr., of Great Falls,
Mont., recommended Ely's Cream Balm to
me. I can empha-size his statement. "It is
a positive cure for catarrh if used as di
rected." —Rev. Francis W. Poole. Pastor

Clothing for boys is not a side I
branch with us, but receives as i
much attention as clothing fori
men. We go on the principle that!
if we serve the boy well that inj

man. There are many men in"]
Sacramento to-day buying their I
clothing here who years ago came <
for knee trouser suits. |
We mention these things simply j
to show that we cannot afford to j
give other than the best sort of ]
satisfaction to the boys. j
Here are a few of the big main- <
stays of the boys' clothing depart-1
meat: ]
Woolen cheviot suits, double I
breasted, with knee trousers, for <
8 to 14 years. $1.50. j
All wool suits, in medium and <
dark colors, knee trousers. $2.50. j
High-grade all-v/00l cassimere'
suits. $3.50. I
We can also furnish the above,
lines in 'middy or reefer suits, for!
3to 8 years, and at same prices. '
