THE TOPEKA. STATE JOTJRNAi; MONDAY . EVENING, SEPTEMBER 19, 1904.
9 PILGRIM JOE. ) Adventures Await Him Every Day In the Wcelu I was welcomed with enthusiasm at the town of Hoot Hog, and durin' the day I took 70 tintypes at ten cents a take. When niftht fell I told the people of the merits of my Pilgrim Pain Alleviator from a box on the public square, and 24 bottles were sold at the usual price of k cents a bottle. My benign look and venerable whiskers had made me friends and had given the populace confi dence in my word, and If I had had four dozen dollar watches I could have sold them out to the last one at S4 apiece. It Is a lovable thing to nave your fellerman believe In vou. and you should never take advantage 01 me same to his undoln . When 1 retired to my room in the tavern that night I had a balmy feelin' of the heart. I had made a profit of aunnff the day and not broken any f the commandments, and 1 found myself remarkin' to myself: "A coal baron may make his tens cf thousands, and a Chicago packer may own a yacht and an automobile at the same time, but the man who has the love of his fellermen has unthtn' better than gold." I had just fallen asleep to dream of flyin about on golden wings whep my door was suddenly burst open anil -six stalwart patriots seized and dragged me out of bed and down stairs. When I asked for explanations I was informed that my Alleviator had caused the death of an eminent citizen, and that I was to swing for it. They wasn't going to give me no show at' all. and I was bein' hurried to the place of execution when the keeper of the tavern Interfered. It wasn't that he loved me. but that he wanted me to pay my bill before I swung. Mis Interference gave me a chance to get my breath, however, and in the course of half an hour the followin' facts was brought to 11gV: That the late deceased citizen was a sufferer from heart disease. That the doctors had warned him gin violent excitement. That instead of buyin' a bottle of my Alleviator on the public square that eavenin 'he had bought a bottle of corn Juice In a drug store. That on goin' home he and his wife had grt into an argument, follered by a tussle, and that he had run out doors and dropped dead. Some three or four of the more en thusiastic of the populashun wanted to hang me for my whiskers, but the more conservative stepped in and I was restored to life and liberty. Apolo gies was even extended along with a glass of ginger-ale. but instead of re turnin' to my couch I silently and without any whoop-la stole down to the barn and harnessed my hoss and left the town behind me. I rode towards the town of T-ast Chance, fifteen miles away, with the raie moon shlnin' on the back of my head and the frogs croakin' mourn fully In the wayside ditches. And thus aid I reflect: Chased Me Around the Tent Six or Seven Times." "It is good to be loved by your fel lerman. but you never can tell how long his goodness is goin' to last. There's only 20 per cent profit in bein' good, but Providence alius seems to come around Jest in time to prevent your being hung. "A populashun should be encour aged to be enthusiastic, but a feller ought also be ready to dodge 'em when they get too much so." They didn't have no brass band out to meet me at Last Chance, but when I got to town the mayor ,ive me a brotherly welcome and introduced me to all the prominent citizens. It was early in the mornin'. but the said promlnents were already playin' a game of poker. Owln' to my general benignness I thought it better to deny that I knew a bob-tailed flush from a full-house, and that I looked upon it as a sinful game. I had Just sot up my tent and got ready to take tin types when a female came jumpin' over boxes and barrels and grabbed me oj- me nair ana wniFkers and we went roilin on the ground toeether. It was five mlnits before the police sorce, wno was an old man, cross yed and lame in the left leg. could pull us apart. Then the woman stands up ana says: "He's my Reuben and I'm hi Hn per. He ran away from me in Indiany our years ago. and I've been follerln' Dim tor a year. I have alius made it a pint to be cool and calm when lookin' into the face of death, and to retain my ven- erameness under the most tryin cir cumstances. On this occasion, as soon as i could git my breath back. I smil m an ouy smue and purceeded to rrove to the crowd that fiction is stranger than truth. There was no doubt that woman was named Hanner, and that Indiana was her home, but I asked the people to look at me and aay if I looked like a man who'd leave a lovin" wife to split her own stove wood and eat her own cold potatoes. It was a well known fact that I was a pilgrim and well fixed financially, and every few days some female who wants to live a life of ease and luxury was ciaimm- me as her Ions lost hus band. Was It rleht? Was It incourag ln' to put my Pilgrim Pain Alleviator within the reach of all at the low price cf ?5 cents a bottle, with the corks stickln" out so they could be pulled by the teeth? And so I growed more earn est and spoke of optical delusions. This woman was squint-eyed and probably rear-sighted, and it would not be ct all strange if she took me for one I was not. If Manner had kept cool there's no tellln' how many of the crowd would have bin on her side, but she used hard words and wanted tp fight, and after hair an hour the mayor summed up the case as rollers: "Hanner says Joe Is her long-lost hus band, and Joe denies it. In this ken try one man's word Is a" good as an other till he's proved a liar. We take optical delusions into ac count, and It's our opinion that a wo- can t be too keerful who she GIRL TO STU K ' 'a- Miss Margaret Ingels. a pretty and talented girl of Paris, Ky., has ten dered her services to the National De mocratic committee and her services have been accepted. She has been notified that she will be assigned to speak In the west. In the last campaign Miss Ingels made many speeches for Bryan and she was popular. charges with bein' her runaway hus band. '"If a pilgrim can't travel over Oklaho ma sellin' Fain Alleviator and foundin orphan asylums without bein' jumped on by women sighin' ta live in extravagance then how can we hope to build up indus tries and make ourselves a great people? "It's the opinion of this populashun, as expressed through me. that Hanner has made a mistake and is sorry for It, but that Pilgrim Joe is also sorry for her. He's so sorry that-he didn't turn out to be the man wanted that he will present her with a JIG bill and his best wishes for her future welfare." I was quick to hand out the money, but Hanner wasn't quick to accept it. As a matter of fact, she broke away from them who was holdin' her and made an other rush at me. and she was not recap tured until she had chased me around the tent six or seven times and fallen' on her nose. When she- realized that optical de lusions could prevail In that town she took the money and engaged a team to carrry her to another town. When she had departed the mayor came to me and asked for the loan of $15 for a few days. I He was speculating in jack rabbits and wanted the money to cover his margins. As I passed it over I said: " "Don't connect this with the claims put forward by Hanner." - "Not at all," says he. "That claim was simply an optical delusion, while the Aggers on these bills are O. K. and right side up." Then t returned to my tent and mads ready to take further tintypes at 10 cent3 a take, and as I- waited foe the people to come In I reflected: . "The race Is not alius to the swift. "There's many a slip 'twixt the cup and the Has.

Don't let any optical delusions sten in. and if the mayor asks for any more loans put mm on tin you can git out of town. (Copyright, 1904, by T. C. Lewis.) A LOOSE ENGINE. The little station at Clatworth had wakened from it usual noontide siesta for the advent of the important trains of the day one from Anderford Junc tion, bringing rlassengers from the London express; the other from re mote country towns, conveying those who desired to catch the up train at the Junction for Waterloo. A man who had alighted from the down train looked around him with a smile of dawning recollection. Clat worth again after five years!" Curious that chance should have obliged him to get out here, on his way south, and return to the Junction to retrieve an important package he had left behind there. A feeling: of satisfaction stole over him at the difference between his past and present self. In those old days, when his commercial traveling had necessitated a fortnight's sojourn at this dead-alive village, he had been of little account either in his own or any other world. Then his chance had come and he had taken it. Five years of rough-and-tumble iife in every quarter of the globe, with a success at the end of it that landed him high and dry on the level of prosperity, had nearly effaced all remembrance of Clatworth. As he crossed the line to the strip of geranium-bordered gravel that formed the up platform, odds and ends of reminiscences began to piece them selves in kaleidoscopic fashion through his brain. - There was the stretch of dusty road that led to the pond and the mill; across the fields rose the tower of the old church, embowered in trees. He was about to overtake some rec ollection that evaded him, when the train came in. the engine pulling up Just opposite to him; and as he moved toward the carriages he was suddenly arrested by a face that brought back vividly, like a bolt from the blue, the most unpleasant experience of his ca reer. The engine driver, leaning a little over his brake, was looking him full In the face with astonished and un easy recognition, and, as the traveler took In the sunburned features, the dark, menacing eyes, the strong, brown hand that seemed to twitch toward him. he remembered everything. There had been a quarrel between this man and himself over a girl Epple, the village belle. The young commercial had interfered with their courting, had captured Epple's truant fancy with his affectation of superior ity and town ways, and after persuad ing her to throw the other over had played fast and loose with her him self. It had been a fortnight's Interlude of mock sentiment and passion to him. MP FOR PARKER. a lifetime of love and desperate grief to her. When he said good-bye to her in the mill lane, and she realized that he had failed her, she gave one bitter cry, and, in answer to it, some one had run across the adjoining field, had leaped the intervening hedge, and had struck him down with one swift, sav age blow. He had picked himself up and gone away with a curse in his heart, not daring to risk a fight, for the discard- ed lover was mad with jealousy. And now, for the first time they were face to face again. For an instant both were silent; then the engine driver said, hoarsely, "What are you doing here?" And the other, with a contemptuous smile, said: "Hows Eppie, The driver's furious eaze flickered. and the traveler intuitively looked past the engine., across the station yard to a patch of green, where, at a cottage door, a woman, young and Comely, stood with a child in her arms. The blazing sunlight shone full on their faces, glinting in the gold of their hair, enhancing the? clear white and red of their cheeks: they looked the embodiment of spring and BUmmer. of childhood s and womanhood s health, mental and physical, in its perfection. And, looking back into the driver's eyes, the traveler read the intolerable suspicion and jealous fear that flashed into them, and understood what had happened in those five years. His mo ment of revenge had come; he had neither waited for it nor counted on it, but he would take advantage of it to tne run. "I was coming along to the June tion," he said, "but I'll wait for the next train. Then I can. have a talk with Epple about old times." And he deliberately turned his gaze toward the cottage door on the green. The driver's hand fell like a sledge hammer on the brake, and he seemed as if he would leap from the engine; but the guard had given the signal of departure, and the train glided slowly out of Clatworth, while the words "Curse you!" smote the air like the lash of a red-hot whip. The traveler smiled, carried his bag along the Parcels Office, and stayed for a word or two of converse with the porter, reminding him of their acquaint ance five years back. "I remember the old place well," he said. "It looks just the same as it used to little changed, any more than the people." And he went toward the level cross ing, where the gates still barred the footway from road passengers, though no train was due. "What's the matter with your boss?" said the station master at the Junction to the stoker of the Clatworth train. "He seems to have gone queer says he must get home for a bit, and he'.'l be back to taki Lh-? fit e-f.fteen out ven if he has to run the whole way. It is ?" with a slgnnicart pause. "It's to do -with his wife." said Ihe stoker, slowly. "He sets great store by her and he thlnk3 that's trouble up. But he'll kep his word pure f-nough and be back in time for her." And he nodded toward the engine. Meanwhile the driver had made his way to the "goods" just startine- for Clatworth. It, seemed , an eternitv to him until his .cottage came in sight, and he stumbled out of the van nice a man who has had too much strong drink; but the porter laid a detaining hand on him and pointed toward the waiting room, round the door of which a group of people clustered, peering and whispering. "What's up?" said the driver, huski ly. . ' "You remember that commercial chap as was hanging round here five years since or thereabouts? He came back this afternoon and missed his train somehow, so he went across to the parcels office and put his- bae in. and stopped there along of me. It might have been a couple of minutes or more. I never thought to warn him of the loose engine as follows you nn to the Junction 'twasn't as If he was stran ger; he must 'a' known well enough. He could see the gates was back. He was looking over his shoulder as he set his foot on the line, and I shouted out to him then, for I could see the engine round the bend, and he nodded back, with something I couldn't catch; and then, before I could get to himIt was all over!" The man lowered his voice. "He was cut right in two." he said, "and he's In there. Best not look at him. I think" he hesitated "I think Epple's wanting you. She saw It happen and ran across here to know who 'twas. And I wouldn't tell her. Tou'd best tell her yourself. She said It made her feel rare and nervous about you, and she'd be glad when the 5:15 . . AMD S fl ISC ELL PULL. AN A. D. T.
