TOPEKA STATE JOURNAL, WEDNESDAY EVENING, JUNE 17, 1903.
A Baronet and an Actress. When Fir Roland Chesterton an Tiounvd hi pnsatrmont to Camille K'l. popuiar French actress, En ghsb ' society was horrified, while the l.'i..neh elite merely shrupsred their enmiM'Ts and said: "Ah Dieu!" Then ti c reported engnsemeiit was declared f !. nd aain Ianie Humor cirou-f,t-l t!le announcement as a positive f,-t this time. I; was shortlv before midnight one ,.iit.r, as Sir Roland was preparing 1,1 lave the club, that a letter was hiT.-'d-'d to him by a messenger boy. The handwriting on the back of the en v, ;, j,e caused him to turn deathly pale, 8i,1 with trernbiir.fr lingers he broke the B .1. .

The next day at - o'clock he went to "and" was horriiied at her c'-areod a;,pr a ,-ai.oe.

H,-r lips ua--re w hite as: -! .'!. he-r face was trhastly like that of a and the light from the grrn Fh ide.j iamt; the tloctor warned him that farntile could live hut a f w hours; the,', delile rately mti'ie the room look wt-erd and flranc. Had he been a fiosef observer he would have noticed B n,o kir.i; smile phiytn about tier momh as h" told her of a certain thins; h- ir.tendeq to do. But, as a most nat ure: oops, quonee, he saw nothing. Ite- WENT TO HEADQUARTERS. Thin Hoarder: "I don't see how you manage to fare so well at this board ing house. I have industriously courted the landlady and ail her daughters, but I'm half starved." Fat Boarder: "I court the cook." A GENTLE EGOTIST. ' -- . r' - i - - i if- ,?, ., ,rj Jones: "It is a great misfortune that you can't go to the theater your self occasionally." Hamlet: "Not at all. Inferior acting does not interest me, and it would to a physical impossibility for me to sit out in front and see myself and eompany perform" turninpr two days later clothed with all the necessary authority of. the law, Camille Kodaya became Lady Chester ton, the nurse and doctor acting as wit nesses to the ceremony. After the cere mony was over Sir Koiand bent over the bed and, taking the new Lady Chester ton in his arms, kissed her colorless lips, despite her efforts to struggle away from him. The next instant the nurse was ordering him out of the house, de claring that the excitement brousht on by the hasty marriage would be the death of the girl. Sir Roland walked rapidly down the narrow little street with a very serious expression on his handsome young face. He was both glad and sorry; he was thoroughly convinced that he had done Iho eieht ttiio" hv C!U;i!a T-To lojc. had kept his word, but the family what would they say? Then the thought came to him that probably Camille would die in a week or so: before his chivalrous act became known; and the very next moment the thought of Ca miile dying set his heart to beating wildly. After he had walked some dis tance he took a cigar from his inner pocket, bit off the end and was going to light it when he felt a sickly substance on his lips. Impulsively, he drew his hands across his mouth, then looked at his lingers, anil saw they were smeared with a cosmetic. "Could it be?" he asked himself, then he remembered how round and plump Catnille's hand was when he placed the ring on her finger. Turning back, lie walked rapidly, his heart filled wdth doubt and misgiving. As he again ap proached the pretty little villa he turn ed hastilv down a side street that led directly past the garden. Headline the gate, lie lifted the latch and entered, with the same rarud strides he walked lift the graveied pathway: upon reaching tire house he entered unannounced. In the garden room, seated about a table, was a merry company; Camille in the best of health and bew itchingly beautiful, sat at the head of the table arrayed in a costly gown, on one side j sat the fake nurse, and on the other j the "doctor" in which Sir Roland rec I ognizod a young vat iety actor that had ! lately become popular: some chorus girls and a f , w amateurs completed the Company. "How strange that I should not have been asked to the feast, he said, entering the room very quietly. The "doctor" made an effort, to reply, the "nurse" covered her face with her hands, the chorus girls sat mute and dumb with terror, but Camille, calm and collci ted, rose and went to him. "Roland, 1 know it was wrong-, but it is no more than you deserve. I ad mit it was all a trick, but the law can't annul the marriage on that account," and her voice grew tender and pleading. "I never meant you to know how 1 had deceived you. Vou will forgive me you will Roland:" She held out her beautiful arms to him. and for a mo ment he hesitated, then almost fiercely he took her in his arms and showered her face with kisses. St. Louis World. HON EST A HE, I . S. 31. The Rural Mail Carrier Relates a Case of Poetry. Several times of late when I have had m;ii! for Uncle Joe White, at the Red Bridge farm. .1 noticed that he wa looking wort led and out of sorts, but I asked no questions, and be volunteered no information until the other day. Then, as 1 drove up, he said to me: "Abe, I'm in a heap o' trouble over mv son Pun. and I want your advice." "And what's the matter with Dan?" I nske-i. "Well, about four weeks ago he took to poetry, and he's been actin' like a 'tarnal fotd ever since. I can't get one day's work a week out o' him. He's at that poetry from morning till night, and many a night he's up till midnight. He's got an idea that he's a new Tenny son, and that he's going to become a great man. t vc argue, t ana coaxe i and threatened, but it don't do no goo, I. "Here's some of the stuff he's writ ten, and I want you to read it and telt me what iou think." The first poem handed up read a.i follows : "She's false to me the girl I loved My happiness she's shattered; My heart will never love again, Because my faith is scattered." The second one read: "Talk not to me of life and love- Talk not of roses red; Talk not of buds and sunny skies, Rut rather of the dead." "Has he been in love and got the threw-dnwn?" 1 asked of Uncle Joe. "Xot as I know of. He jest seemed to feel that way, you see. Here is one that is different." The one that was different read: " 'To arms! To arms.!' Fir Henry cried. 'To arms, mr brave defenders.' And each one buckled on his sword And tightened his susjienders. - V. " r ',, , iii ' ,fJ . "Then to the fray Sir Henry rode. And to the fray was follered; And every time he killed a man Mout gleefully-he hollered." "I don't know a durned thing- about poetry." explained Uncle Joe, "but 1 do know- when a feller is makin' a fool o' himself. That's what Dan is doin' now, and I want to s'top him. I'm not. goin' to board and lodge and clothe him and let him sprawl around on the grass and tinker poetry. He was eatin' dinner the other day when he jumped up to write this down: "The flowers of May are nothing- to me, And nought are the roses of June: I would lay down and expire for the love of Marian, And die in the full of the moon." "Abe, is Dan a fool or a poet?" asked Cnc-le Joe, as I finished reading the above. "A little of both, I think," I replied. "Will he ever git rich as a poet?" "I hardly think so." "Then durn his hide, he's got to quit this nonsense and git into the cornfield. I want to do what's right by my chil dren, Abe, but they've got to do what's right by me. "Right now. when Dan ought to be hustling with a hoe, he's out under an apple tree writing poetry with his tongue hangin' out and his eyes rolled up. If you say so, I'll go out there and jump him two feet high and scare all the poetry out of him." r I l"ll' liJf'""-C rr- UNDER AN APPLE TREE! WRITING POETRY. "I wouldn't be too sudden, Uncle Joe," I answered. "How too sudden?" "Well, I'd give him a little warning a little poetic warning. After I'm gone, you might wander out that way and carelessly say to Dan: "A farmer named White he had a son. And the son he was a great poet; And verses wrote he of meadow and lea. And fast was the pace he did so it." "Yes, Abe, and what elese?" asked Uncle Joe. "Then you can sort o' walk around Dan. as if you were looking for some thing in the grass and continue: "The blossoms of May don't blossom for me Unheeded the song of the crow; The old. spotted cow. is nought to me now. Because of my heart full of woe." "That's it. Abe. I begin to see." "Dan will probably stop writing poetry to look up at you, but don't give him any attention. Rest your hand on your heart and look up at the sky and repeat: "Talk not to me of summer skies Talk not of winds a-hlowing; Talk not of plows and drags and sich And crops that should be growing." "Keep 'er up, Abe keep 'er up, I'm catching on." "Then you softly sidestep towards Dan and carelessly spit on your hands and repeat: " 'Arise! Arise:' the father said For glory doth await thee: And if thou stayest hre behind Thv daddy lie will ska'e thee." "And with that I give Dan a n'ist? queried Uncle Joe. " "u do. "With both Viands?" "Yes." "And as I lift him up, my right boot bangs against him?" "It does." "And his first jump towards the cornfield is fully fen feet, and he won't even stop work when the dinner horn blows?" "That's it. Uncle Joe." "And he'll let up on poetry and 'tend to business?" "Forever more." "Abe. I'm your friend for life, and I'll have D.m cured of his poetiy and work ing in the cornfield before you are. out of sight, or break a leg a-trying'." (Copyright, 1P03. by C. B. Lewis.) Wanted: A Theseus. Pneumonia is an impudent, recalcit rant and contumacious disease. Other diseases have made their submission to science. Pneumonia continues undaunt ed and defiant. During May of last year it slew 330 inhabitants of this city. Dir ing May of this year it slew not 330, but 646. This is science checked in its career of victory and forced to admit .at least a temporary defeat. In the early world, when, according to that figure of speech which enjoys a monopoly of the occa sion, "the curtain o history wait rising ' certain heroes went forth with clubs anal destroyed the beasts and monsters, fog inhaling and fire exhaling, which prey ed upon the villages of men and render ed life unsafe. Today, w hen such beasts and monsters are extinct, we have men not called heioes, but scientists, who, armed with test tubes instead of clubs, go forth to battle with infinittely subtle, enemies of the human race. This is one chapter in the romance of the age. Those who have eyes to see, see it. In many cases the scientists have been spectacularly successful. Where they have not slain the monsters they have at least muzzled them. It is. there fore, the more surprising that pneu monia has been able to continue its depredations. From all over this coun try come reports to the effect that the rumber of victims claimed by pneu monia is steadily increasing. Consump tion is put to shame. Last month in Chicago, while pneumonia laid its hand on 616 people, consumption reached only 264. The "great white plague" may soon have to yield its title to a more worthy claimant. For the minotaur, when it plagued Athens, there was a Theseus. Will there be a Theseus for the monster which is plaguing this continent today? Ur." r eC . ': And his reward in con-selc-isnc-s , f service and in spiendor of name will be man' times greater than that of- his ancient prototype. Chicago Tribune. Chiacgo and Return $16.00 via San ta Fe.
