A COMIC TRAGEDY.
The Auiience Was Ready, but the
Show Was Tangled Up.
John Banvard, who afterward be
came famous as the painter of a great
panorama of Mississippi scenery, set
out in his boyhood, in the early thir
ties, to travel down the "Great Water"
in a flatboat with a number of compan
ions. They built their boat on the Wa
bash and were to pay their way by
exhibiting dioramic views in the cabin
at landings. Unfortunately the can
dlelights were not then shining
through the sycamores along the Wa
bash, and before the adventurers reach
ed a settled region they ran out of pro
visions. In the woods they could find
nothing but papaws, luscious at first,
but quickly cloying.
For two days, wrote the sixteen
year-old Banvard, we had nothing
whatever to eat but those awful pa
paws. The very sight or memory of
one made me shudder. Then, on a joy
ful, sunny afternoon, we approached
Shawneetown, 111., on the Ohio river,
where we were advertised to exhibit.
As we came in we could see on the
bank a crowd ot people. Some car
ried chickens, some eggs, some yams,
some potatoes, some "side meat" (ba-
eon) and some cofnmeal. Our dinner
Was sight, for all those things were
Intended as payment for admission at
the door, and all were "good."
Our stomachs hungered, and our
mouths watered for the feast but,
alas, we were too eager! Working our
boat toward land, we ran upon a reef
and stuck fast. Every effort to set us
free failed Darkness came on, and be
fore our eyes our "house" disbanded
and went home, carrying our supper
Discouraged and forlorn, we turned
to our bag of papaws for what conso
lation we could find and then went to
sleep. In the night we floated free and
at daylight were in the woods again
eight miles below those luscious pro
visions. That was one of the most
awful tragedies of my life.Youth's
The Tragedy of Little Things That
Are Left Undone.
The judge and spectators in a Kan
sas City courtroom laughed when a
husband testified that his wife gave
him only "mechanical kisses."
Then the lawyers devoted many min
utes to the question, "What is a me
chanical kiss?" They decided that it
was a salutation given only through a
sense of duty, and then they laughed
They didn't go far enough. They
might have called it a tragedy.
With most women affection lasts. It
burns as strongly in old age as in gold
en youth. A caress means a world of
Joy to them.
Some men forget. They grow care
less. Carelessness is often a species of
selfishness. Once it was a privilege to
press a lover's kiss on the lips of a
wife at the door when leaving in the
morning, again as a warm greeting
that always marked the homecoming
And one morning the man forgot the
caress and lost himself in business.
And a shadow fell on a romance, and
the woman wept. She tried to be brave
and sensible. She tried to laugh at the
silly fear that he didn't care for her.
She assured herself a hundred times
that it was such a little thing and that
it was natural for him to forget and
that it was unreasonable for her to ex
pect the joy of the honeymoon through
life. She wiped away her tears and re
solved to hide her grief and be kind,
And the man never knew. Perhaps
some day he went into court and com
plained that he had been the recipient
of "mechanical kisses." Domestic neg
lect isn't always confined to lack of
food and clothing. Cruelty doesn't al
ways take the form of physical abuse.
When men learn to think, when they
remember that the little attentions of
ten mark the difference between joy
and sorrow in a woman's life, there
will be more real happiness in the
world.Milwaukee Journal. ^2
