The Hypnotizing of Lizzie
By George "I've done most all t can for you," aid Tapt. Habbleton. emphatically, "and i;'s up to you to help joursclf some." "Show mo how," said the mate. des perately. "I'm wlllin' to take any kind of a chance." "You've had a barrel of 'cm." re turned the captain, sternly. "Here you are. J It.) Hh.ke. six foot two and a fine fi.nure of a seaman, stand in' novt to me for command of the Arklam, which is ihe wc'.lst steam fn iKhter on the lakes, and yet jon ain't pot the time to go in and win a 20-year-old slip of a girl, even w ith her father a hacking yuu up." "Wot s the use of it all when she don't want to lie won?" queried the mate, disconsolately. The indignant captain turned pur pie. "Pust mo if ever I see such a chick en hearted swab." he roared. "Hero 1 brought Lizzie ou this trip tn Huf. falo. a' purpose, so as you'd he thrown together a lot. and wot's come of all my trouble" nothin!" "I donu my best." said the mate, sulkily. "Didn't I take hoT to a show last night?" "You did." retorted the captain, with fine scorn, "you did. hut wot did you buy three tickets for and ask mo a Ion??' "She said you'd like to go." said the mate, feebly. "You shouldn't have minded her," returned the captain, testily. "I wish I was like that ere mnp.lrl.in we saw at the theater that did all them hypnotizing tricks." sighed the mate. "Women like chaps that can do w-ondorful things, and t'was fair surprising the way he put folks asleep nnd made 'em hop around. She thought he wad all right, too; talked about him all the way back to the boat. ("apt. Habbleton smacked his thigh vigorously. "That's a good notion, .Tim," he exclaimed. "Wot's the mat ter with you turniii' hypnotist In a amatoor way and maklti' u hit with her?" Wot, me?" ejaculated the startled mate. "Yes, you." returned the captain, complacently. "You kin fiike up u exhibition on the trip to Chicago. Wa ll square a couple of the boys to help you out and I'll stand half tha expense." The mnte looked doubtful. "It might work," he usscrtcd, "but 1 dunno." "It's got to work," returned Huhhle ton. firmly. "I know a smart, young chap on Seneca street, a performer himself, as kin put us onto a few tips. This thing's got to he put through, ,lim Hlake, mid you know me. I'll never let my daughter marry that lubber of a young doctor In t'hlengo that's gone on her, long as 1 kin get her a good Kadormun for a husband." Miss l.ly.io Hahhleton was a shrewd young woman, and soon after the Ark lam started on the return voyage hhe became aware that something unusual was on foot, for her worthy father was unable to conceal his exultation and strutted about with an air of portentous mystery. Therefore she was not altogether surprised when In formed of the treat in store for her, although expressing due nsloniMimcnt upon hearing of the new ly-acquired I oxvers of Mr. Ttlake. ('apt. Hahhleton, KHttstWd wit.h the effect of his revelation, hastened to the cook's galley, where the mate was perspiring freely while engaged In the task of rehearsing his "subjects." They were three In number, two deck hands and the cabin boy and. all things considered, performed their parts very- well, stimulated by the prospect of coming rewards. Hofore Lizzie's admiring gaze, Mr. Hlake In duced his assistants to slumber, awoke them 'v virtue of mysterious passcB ami geu'le touches of his hands, and caused them to obey extraordinary or ders, whereby llwy mewed like cats, hopped gravely mound the cabin on all fours and indulged in other antics usually con I) nod to the brute creation. "Ain't that clever work?" inquired the captain, when the performance, had ( tided and the "subjects" returned to their own quarters. "Thut leather headed young sawbones 'II never see the day he kin do such stunts, Liz!" "lt'.s wonderful." agreed his daugh ter. Ignoring the last part of her parent's remark. "Now tha! I notice it dad. Mr. Hlake has. eyes exactly like the magician's that we saw at the theater. And now 1 want him to hypnotize me." The startled mate glanced at his su perior and that gentleman interposed hastily. "Couldn't be thought of, Lizzie," ho said. "It might be dangerous. You're only a girl, y' know, not like them strong fellows." Nonsense," retorted Miss I'abble ton. "The man tn the theater put two girls to sleep and neither of them was as big or strong as I am." The captain persisting In his refusal, the aggrieved maiden took refuge in a flood of toaM, whereupon her dis mayed parent withdrew with the mate for a conference "You must pretend to try, Jim," said the captain, "and then tell her she's got too much w ill power for you. aieb be that'll Hatter her." Klake protested, but his commander was Insistent and led hira back to the cabin, where Mis Babbleton, smiling radiantly, composed herself for the or- 7. Partly ly Ptorj Tub. Co.) deal. The mate waved his hands In tnysth' fashion and stared Into the slrl's face until his protruding orbs seemed ready to start from their sockets. To his unbounded amaze nwnt the head of his "subject" sunk back suddenly, her eyes closed nnd a gentle snore Issued from her dainty tiostrlls. He gave vent to a horrified exclamation, which was echoed by the captain. "You've done it, by gum," said flab bleton, hoarsely; "it's your eyes, Jim; she allowed they wore lik the magician's. I don't half like it, though here, Liz wake up!" He shook Ihe girl vigorously, but there was no response. "I.emme try," said the mate, secret, ly proud, yet nfratd of tho success of his experiment. He touched her face gently and Miss Hahhleton sat tip and gazed at them inquiringly. The cap tain pointed proudly to Mr. Hlake, who was breathing bard and Unshed with triumph. ".lim did just wot yon asked him. Uz," he said, Jubilantly. "Only him could wake you, too. I tried and you wouldn't budge an eyelid." "I never thought he was o clever," remarked the girl, admiringly, and the modest mue turned a still deeper rrlms'ui. It was evident that Miss Hahhleton was favorably impressed by Mr. Make's wonder-working powers, nnd her demeanor towards him for tho re mainder of the voyage caused her fa ther intense delight. The Arklam was about live hours' sail from Chicago when she insisted upon her sultot again tooling his hypnotic strength. After much pcrsunson, he yielded and the "subject'' went promptly Into a heavy trance. Much to the dismay of the amateur magician, however, she refused obstinately to n waken. "This is a pretty mess." said the agi tated captain to his no less nervous subordinate. "I've read of fr.lks dying in them there trances." Tho horror stricken mate swore feebly but could offer no suggestion, and when the Arklem tied up at the Chicago docks, the female passenger was still slum bering. "I'm going to send for that medical swab she's so fond of." said Hahhle ton. desperately. "He'll fix her If he can and keep mum about it. I dassent trust a stranger." Half an hour later Dr. Nicholas Marston entered the patient's state room. Soon afterwards he emerged nnd sought tho anxious commander and mate. "Miss Hahhleton Is conscious but not quite out of danger, captain," he said, sternly. "And now I have a proposition to make to you. Consent to our marriage and I'll not report this case to the authorities. Hefuso, and the law must take Its course. I suppose you are aware that there is a heavy penalty attaching to all such wiTlful attempts on human life, nnd a jury would be apt to take a severe view of the matter." "1 lie agitated captain seined the physician's hand and wrung It fervent ly- "Say no more, my lad." ho ex claimed. "You've saved her and she's yours!" Miss Hal. bleton. standing behind the half closed door, laughed softly as she heard her parent's acknowledgment of surrender. COLORED WOMAN'S BIG DEAL.

No one else would do, and the attendant was eventually obliged to conduct her to that ollicial's pri vate office Arrived there, the old woman, with much simplicity of man ner, asked whether the financial dis turbance was passed, and was smil ingly assured that it. was. Thereupon, to the amazement of tho financier, she drew from the folds of her dress a bank book and 2t5 bills, each of the denomination of $l,tmi, and asked that they te placed to the credit of her "master's" account. The book .was in the name of one of the oldest nnd wealthiest customers of the bank, a retired and superannuated merchant, who nowadays rarely leaves his house, but who had every confidence In aa old domestic.

"I could no more have given It then than I could have flown," he confided later to an acquaintance. Luckily nn official who recognized hlra and knew of bis forgctfulnegj came to his rescue.
