THE TOPEKA DAILY STATE JOUBHAK SATURDAY EVENING, JULY 20, 1907.
BOWSER STRIKES IT.
Huckleberry Wine to Make
Millionaire.
Him a
There was a beaming, balmy smile
on Mr. Bowser's face as he came home
from the office the other evening-, and
as Mrs. Bowser met him at the door he
put his arm around her and called her
"old girl" and said he had been think
ing of her all the afternoon. Before
sitting down to dinner he insisted on
stroking her hair and holding her
hand, and all through the meal he
spoke in her praise and plainly told
her that he didn't hold her responsible
for the size of the gas bills. Now and
then he would burst Into laughter and
slap his leg and ask what she was go
ing to do when they reached Paris,
and if she thought she would enjoy
seeing the room in the Tower of Lon
don where Louis the XVI. was be
headed. Mrs. Bowser could not make him
out, but she knew that he had news of
some kind to communicate, and that
he would get around to it after the
meal. She was right. He kept it to
himself until he had his cigar alight
and then, after a brief absence up
stairs, he stood before her with a be
nign look on his face and said:
"Mrs. Bowser, you are a good wo
man a mighty good woman."
"Yes?"
"You- deserve all you are going to
get. When I think of how happy you
will be it makes me rejoice."
"But what am I going to get?"
she asked.
"And your mother. She is a good
woman a mighty good woman. She
Is my mother-in-law, but I think just
as much of her as If she was my own
dear mother. The good old soul, but
I'd like to hug her. I will make her
one of the happiest women in the
world, and she shall bless the 'day I
married her daughter."
"But what is all this mystery about?
What has happened during the day?"
"Mystery ha! ha! ha! No mystery
about It, dear. We are simply about to
become millionaires ten times over.
"We may not own the whole earth In a
couple of years more, tut we shall
have the title deeds to a good share
of it. Do you think $100,000 a year
sufficient pin-money for you? If you
don't just say so. I am not the man
to stint my wife on pin-money. 'Scuse
me a minute, will you?"
He passed into the library and was
gone a minute and a half and then
reappeared licking his lips. Mrs.
Bowser sniffed the air and detected an
aroma, but couldn't exactly define it.
Mr. Bowser's smile was now both pat
ernal and benignant, and sitting down
with a chuckle he said:
"You are dying to hear all about
It, and I won t keep you in suspense.
I started life as a poor man, didn't I?"
"Yes."
"When we got back from our bridal
tour I had only seventy-five cents left
only seventy-five. You began to worry
as to how we should get along, but I told
you to trust in me. I knew myself. I
know that a man with brains, who was
a natural financier, could not be kept
down. We haven't had to go to the poor
house, have we?"
"No, indeed."
"Poor house ha! ha! ha! Bowser the
financier In the poor house! Hasn't ev
ery scheme I have taken hold of proved
a glorious success? Hasn't every plan
worked out as I expected?"
Mrs. Bowser thought of the hundred
and one schemes he had originated and
made a failure of. but it was no time
to furnish a list of them. She wanted
to hear what his latest was. He again
asked to be excused and dodged out into
the hall for a couple of minutes. She
thought she heard a gurgling in his di
rection, but was not sure. When he re
turned he said:
"You know what the huckleberry is,
of course "
"Yes."
"And you have heard of logwood?'
"Certainly."
"And alcohol?"
"Of course."
"'Well, those are the three things that
are going to make us rich. When I left
the house this morning I had no more
Idea of what was in store for me than
you have of flying across the Atlantic.
When I reached the office I found a
gentleman named DuBoss waiting for
me. He was a count before the French
republic He was not only a count,
but he was worth his millions. When the
nobility had to go he found himself a
poor man. Some counts would have
committed suicide, but he was not that
sort of a man. He cast around for a
way to rebuild his fortunes. After many
H
failures and disappointments he has
finaly struck it. That's what brought
him over to see me."
"But he didn't come over from France
especially to see you, did he?" asked
Mrs. Bowser.
"Certainly. He came straight to tho
office from the steamer. He came to see
Bowser first of all. He would have
waited all day for me to come in. Mrs.
Bowser, I want you to know that your
husband is Just as well known In Eu
rope, Asia and Africa as in America.
The count had a scheme to lay before
me, and being a business man, he didn't
waste any time. Do you know the value
of the French wines made every year?"
"I have no idea."
"Over three hundred million dollars,
my dear. Two-thirds of them are made I
of grapes, but the other one-third of
something else. The profit on them is
enormous. There is no earthly reason
why French wines can't be made right
hero in our own city. Alt you have to
do is to mix up the stuff and put a
French label on the bottle. The count
carne ever to propose a business partner
ship, and I am going in with him.
'Scuse me a minute, dear."
He stepped out into the hall, and
this time there was no mistake about
the gurgle. There was a glad light in
his eyes as he returned, but he had to
scratch his head and look up at the
ceiling before he could remember
where he left off and continued:
"Enormous profits. Mrs. Bowser
enormous. Five bushels or tne Amer
ican huckleberrv, together with one
gallon of alcohol, two pounds of log
wood and ten barrels of water makes
$50,000 worth of the best French
wines. Clear profit $45,000. Any
gold mine to beat that? Pat your
husband on the back and call him a
bully boj'. I attend to th ; huckleberry
part and the count to the rest. I ad
vertise in the morning paper for ten
thousand bushels of huck huck "
There was no longer room to doubt
Mr. Bowser's condition. He was smil
ing feebly and looking up at the ceil
ing, and he seemed to have come to
the end of his story. Mrs. Bowser
passed around behind him and took a
pint bottle of some lark liquid from
his breast pocket. There were but a
few sips left in the bottle. The gurg
ling noise was explained.
"What do you call this?" she asked.
"Zhat? Zhat's our huck huckle
berry wine. Count had a bottle of it
all ready made for me. Mrsh.
B wsher, zhe profits are enormous."
"Do you know that you are intoxi
cated?" "Me 'toxicated ha! ha! ha! Good
shoke. It's just 'er logwood making
me feel good. Five bushels of Amer
ican huckleberries, ten barrels of of
ten barrels of what did I shay? No
matter. Zhe profits are shimply gi
gantic. Don't even have to use "er
best kind of logwood. Any old sort of
logwood will do. 'Er count shays zhat
my half 'er profits will amount to
to "
"Mr. Bowrer. you must go to bed."
she said as his head fell forward on
his breast. "I woudn't have the cook
see you in this condition for any
thing." "Cook? Shee me? Condishun?
Whaz you mean, Mrsh. Bowsher?
Can't I tako five bushels of huck
huckleberries, and ten bar'ls of wa
water and ?"
Then he slid out of his chair under
the reading table and knew no more.
French counts huckleberries log
wood and alcohol were no more to
him. The profits had been enormous
and he had made his millior.s. It was
a warm night, and Mrs. Bowser slip
ped a sofa pillow under his head and
turned out the gas and went up stairs
to bed and left him by his lonesome.

BUY COAL NOW.
Frcie-ht Rates Are Cut to Encourage
Summer Purchases.
New York, July 20. To stimulate
the purchase and shipment of coal
during the summer months, when the
greatest number of cars of this kind
are available, the interstate commerce
commission at the request of the
Union Pacific railroad and the Oregon
Short Line has especially authorized a
reduction of 25 cents a ton on coal
shipped to Washington. Idaho and Ne
vada between July 19 and Septem
ber 1.
For the last two months officials of
the Harriman lines have been en
deavoring to induce western coal deal
ers to make their shipments this sum
mer in order to avoid a recurrence of
last winter's fuel scarcity. The diffi
culty then in supplying coal to the
western states grew partly out of
shortage of equipment and partly from
the fact that orders were delayed until
weather conditions made freight move
ment slow and difficult.
The Union Pacific therefore took the
unusual step of applying to the inter
state commerce commission to bo al
lowed to make a reduction in its rate
In order to get the co-operation of
dealers In shipping fuel now when the
lines are in good shape to handle it
promptly.
Will Wed Minnie Palmer Asaln.
New York, July 20. John H.
Rogers, who is known from the lakes
of Maine to the orange groves of Cali
fornia as "Yours Merrily," has arrived
home from Enjland on the Deutsch
land, and the first announcement he
made was that a reconciliation had
taken place between himself and his
former wife. Miss Minnie Palmer, an
actress, who has long been in London.
"Miss Palmer has decided to settle up
her business in London and come here
to remain permanently," said Mr.
Rogers, who added that he expected to
be remarried to Miss Palmer.
