U0 BAR V, One Was Left on Porch at Orphans' Home. A re'ceo baby wits left on the steps of the Topeka ( trp bans' liome last even inn at about Pc.Vi o'clock. What wilt become ,.f it is a puzzle. It is against the ruies of the institution to take r.erro r htldren, and it will not lie cared f ir at the home. The matron tele : t-.'-ned the particulars of tlie case to t'-e t oiice station this morning and a--k.'d that the police send out to the h. ir..' f.,,,1 get the child. But the police d " 't want the baby. They claim th"V wouldn t know what to do with it. and v on t have anything to do with it. So A weak stomach is the cause of all Fa "hrvss.

Yesterday a negro woman of mora than 30 yonrs called at the oiuhan home to ask if they would take charge of her child. She was told that they would not care for it at the home. Sh insisted and protested that they must t:ik- it, but was finally sent away. Nothing more was seen of her, but when when one of the attaches of th institution passed late in the evening she found the baby lying: on the porch fixed un in a nice bundle with fairly good cluthes and a bottle. The child was taken in for the night, but it will not be kept at the home longer than today. DEK GERMAN CO Ii BLEU. Mr. Voglestein Comes to Talk Over Things.

(Copyright, 1903, by C. B. Lewis.) ' i, 1 ' 1 h7 I I 1 '. 'Ill Iflft OUT 0FJ1E PAST. Hezekiah Edgars sat before the tire less grate with dull despair depicted in his face. "The poorhouse," he mur mured. "God. what a horror." The room in which the old man sat was bare of furniture save for a bed, a chair and an old horsehair trunk, brass nailed and padlocked at the hasp. On the wall was a portrait in oil, tlira with age for the most part, yet with the stern set face of the old Puritan preach er, Jonathan Edgars, looking out with eyes untouched by time. The old man rose unsteadily from the chair and, walking to the window, look ed out upon the gray day. Then, shiv ering, he lurried away. "Cold without and within," he said to himself. "The whole world is chili for him who Is old." Hezekiah Edgars took a worn purse from the pocket of his threadbare coat and, opening it, looked within. "Fifteen dollars," he muttered, "and when that is gone, the pioot house." The house in which he stood had been his and his ancestors. Now it was mortgaged and the foreclosure was com ing. He had no near relatives to whom to make an appeal even had not his pride forbade it. At 78 years the feeble and poverty stricken have few- friends. Hezekiah Edgars took a key from the purse and, stooping down, removed the heavy padlock of the trunk and threw back the lid. The trunk was full of let ters. They were time stained ani those showing at the top of the mass bore traces of broken seals. The letters had been written long before the days of en velopes. Hezekiah Edgars picked up one of the stained letters and spread it open. His still keen eye ran rapidly down the lines. "What a story is here," he muttered. He glanced quickly up at the face in the frame above him, and in his im agination he seemed to see in the stern features a questioning; look. The door leading into the room open ed softly and a rough looking man, but one in whose face there was something of kindness, though it had been brutal ized by drink, entered. The stranger saw the open trunk and letter in the old man's hand, and stealing quietly forward looked eagerly over the shoul der of the stooping figure at the written page. Then he stepped back a few steps and spoke. "flood morning, M'r. Edgars." The old man started violently, folded the letter with nervous haste, thrust it back into the trunk, closed the lid and snapped the padlock. "You startled me, Jim," he said. "I did not know you were here. You're welcome though, Jim. You're about the only friend I have, and I must leave you soon." "So I've heard, Mr. Edgars, but per haps it won't be so bad as you think. Haven't you got some rich ones, even though they ain't near kin. that you can wtite to? Folks don't like to hear of relatives, even though they're only ninth cousins, goin' to the poor house." "None that I'd appeal to, Jim," said the old man. The next day Jim Hapgood saw old Hezekiah Edgars pass down the street. He was goins; after his daily meager supply of food. "That old man." mused Hapgood. "is an aristocrat. He's got the best blood in the land in him. He told me once that that old Puritan fel low in the frame was his great-great-uncle, and the most famous preacher in the land. But aristocracy and ancestry don't count when you're 7si and ain't got no money." The old man disappeared around the corner of the street. Hapgood, with a curious light in his eyes, went quickly across the roadway and entered the ramshackle old mansion which Edgars had just left. He went straight to the upstairs room, where he had seen the open trunk. Entering, he took a curi ously shaped key from his pocket and sprung the clasp of the padlock, throw ing back the lid of the trunk. With nervous haste he packed out a letter. It was the one which the old man had been reading the day before. Hapgood read the letter through, and a smile of satisfaction came into his face. Then he locked the trunk and went awav. That night Jim Hapgood scraped together all the money he could and left for New York city. Thence be went to Newport. In three days' time he was back at his home with the light of an almost tierce joy in his eves. The day after Jim Hapgood's depart ure Hezekiah Edgars missed the daily visit which this rough fellow had been in the habit of paying. He liked flap good, despite his roughness and his drunkenness, for the fellow in his way had been kind to the old man. Fklgars in his loneliness turned to the trunk. H" unlocked it and took out several o the letters. He did not detect the absence of one. Pie went over them one at a time, while the stern face in the portrait above looked down on him. The great part of the letters were ad dressed to Aaron Barrage, the grandson of the man who was looking down from the frame on the wall and the cousin of the father of the old man who was bending over the trunk. Hezekiah Ed gars knew the names that were signed to these letters. They were the names of women, famous women in their day a century agone, and names still borne by people whom the world knew for their wealth and their position. Heze kiah Edgars half shuddered as he read the letters and thought of the power for evil of his long dead kinsman. "Why were these never destroyed," he asked himself, "before they came into my hands?" Then he closed the trunk and looked it. Three days later Jim Hapgood entered the old man's apartment. "Mr. Edgars," he said, "I did something mean, but I o-upss vou won't be sorry when you know- what come of it. - I took a letter out of that horsehair trunk the other day. and I've been to New York and Newport, and I showed it where it did the most good. The women who wrote those letters have descendants. I seen a few of 'ern while I was away. That trunk, with what's in it. delivered in New York Citv Monday of next weelc, is worth $50,000 cold cash. There's $10, 000 of it for me and $10,000 of it for you, and vou won't go to no poorhouse yet awhile. Now. don't you look like that, for the letters won't hurt nobody and won't get published. They're goin' to the descendants of the writers, and thev'll burn 'em up quick. You just think over it till tomorrow, and I'll come again." The old man's hands were trembling. When Hapgood left he rose unsteadily and looked about him. The room seem ingly was barer than ever. The words "forty thousand dollars" went buzzing through his brain. Then he put the thought of the money from him, and quickly came the vision of that awful (f id 7 Hi v i ra ' i "r ii tt Dimr i i n c rune w GRAIN COFFEE The coffee habit is quickly- over come by those who let Grain-O take its place.

With all its severity it was a noble face that looked down upon him. The olei man studied it and thought of his father and his father's ' fathe r. "They were honorable men, came the thought, "and I have been an honorable man to this day." He dragged the trunk from the cor ner to the fireplace. He unlocked it and took out the letters in armsful with a sort of delight in his face ami threw them on the hearth. He had emptied the trunk. He light ed a match and touched the flame to the pile of paper. He watched the flames lick up the letters. In a moment or two there was nothing but gray ashes on the hearth. The old man turned and lookeel squarely and proudly into the eyes of the fare on the wall. Jim Hapgood went to that room the next day. The old man was on his bed, with a smile lighting up his dead face. Chie-ago Record-Herald. Mil. B0SELEY CATGUT. Ha Gave Another Indian Liquor in Sight of Mr. McKenver. The other day as United States Dis. trict Attorney E. D. McKeever was sit ting in his office in the federal buildinfr someone telephoned and told him to look out the. south window to the alley on the opposite side of Fifth street. McKeever followed instructions and saw Sam Hoseley, a half-breed Indian of the reserve, whose experiences in the To peka police court are like the sands of the sea. in the act of dividing a drink of whisky with another Indian. In a minute or two more Mr. Mc Keever had supplied a deputy marfhai with the necessary complaint and had Mr. Tioseloy arrested. He was causfht red handed and landed in the count jail. It is as much an offense for one Indian to rive liquor to another as for a white man. and it is probable Mr. Boseley's punishment will be as severe as that of a white offender. Tiie Busy Man's Train.
