Bondurant The Hardware Man Westerner Declare He Hae It In Hie Poseeulon fend Hae Offered to Present It to the City of Philadelphia. What Is represented to be the In dian copy of tie treaty of friendship between William Pena and the In diana, made under the elm tree, hu been offered to Wilfred Jordan, cura tor of Independeace hall, for inspec tion, and he la dally expecting its ar rival from Frederick M. Hans, "Lone Star," Indian sooit, of Kansas, the Philadelphia Inquirer says. Whether it can stand the fire of his torical criticism to which it will be subjected from Curator Jordan re mains to be seen, but he said that he would feel chargeable with inexcus able neglect aa a city official if he had not met the effer with a warm In terest and anxietf to give the owner eTery fair opportunity to prove the genuineness of the relic. Incidentally, It raises the question: "Where is the white man's origiaal copy of the Penn treaty," if there vu one, if It was not ft of record only In the recording an gel's book? Mr. Jordan said there was no reason to doubt the good faith of the man who offered the Indians' copy of the treaty at any rate, whether it turns out to be a copy or only the Indians' original chronicle of the event or a reproduction of that chronicle after the original wore out The possessor la Frederick M. Hans, or "Lone Star," Kansas plainsman and Indian Bcout His own account of the matter sent to Philadelphia is as follows: "It is a little, piece of buckskin, eight Inches by twelve inches, old, Boiled with long kindling, the figures half effaced. It was given to Freder ick M. Hans by ome of the squaws of Sitting Bull. It eemtalns a leafless tree,, which is said' to record the fall as the time of the making of the treaty. Every dot among the feet of the figures represent a year 8':;ce the treaty was made. In 1178, when Hans obtained possessloi'of it, it c-atained 198 dots. Sitting Bull was the chief medicine man of the Sioux and keep er of the recordi of the nation. The Sioux tribe was largely recruited from the Lenni Lenape Indians, with whom Penn made the famous treaty. Other Indian chronicles In Hans' possession give the account of the rise of the Sioux. They say a mighty warrior arose and cut the throats, of 100 Ml amis. Sioux, meaning, according to this interpretation, ent-throat warriors, deserted the Lennl Lenapes, and they carried with them the Penn treaty chronicle on buckskin, which was handed down to Sitting Bull." "We will see what it is, at any rate," said Curator Jordan, "and If it's what it purports to be Philadelphia Is the place for it Mr. Hans has had some negotiations with the Smithsonian in stitution at Washington, but whether they have ever had It under careful examination or not we do not know." Capped Projectiles. It Is a curious fact that armor pierc ing shells having soft metal caps on the point are more effective than those not so provided. The way in w,hich the cap acts la not well understood. A needle may be driven Into a board with a hammer when it Is thrust through a cerk, whereas it- would break off unsupported. Some have thought that the soft cap supports the hard point of the projectile In the same way. A British naval architect who has been studying tie mutual ae Uon of projectile and armor savn that a shell frequently falls because a very email piece of the point is forced back into the mass and splits It. A larza piece is then similarly forced back, ana so on. The main advantage of the soft cap, this writer thinks, is to pre vent such spllttini. Cans are inef. fective at low velocities, but would probably be less so if made larger. A Warning. "Since one in ten of us. If we weath. er the age of J5, are doomed to die of cancer," said a physician, "It is good to know the most prevalent cause of this terrible disease. That cause Is pressure local Irritation. "Certain eastern women wear a hlt about the waist with a tight and neavy clasp of metal in front Where uua ciasp presses these women con tract cancer. "Turkish porters carry heavy weights on their shoulders. Whn these men fall victims to cancer it is on 'the shoulder that the disease ap pears. "Here with us cancer too often at tacks men'a tongues. The cause is the cigar or pipe, which, with its pres sure and heat aets up the irritation which is certainly, so far as we know, cancer's chief caase." The Real Thing.

Willing It Mingle. That European nobleman seems democratic sort ef chap." - "Tea," answered Mr. Cumrox; "he seems perfectly willing to divide up ome heiress' money, so that he can come off the perch. and be one of aa newly rich." (Copyright, by Ford Pub. Co.) The dust lay In thick wreath in tha roadway; the woman's tired feet Dragged through them, filling the hot air with a fine, penetrating powder. The walk from the town was long, longer than she had thought and above her head a brazen sun glared from an arc of tempered BteeL She was very unhappy, and very much alone. The river sparkled through the willowa on her right like sunshine upon passing lancea. There led a lit tle path through the intervening mead ows to the water's edge, and further on rose an old red house in a walled garden, deep in trees, cozily, guiltily. Her house, then. The people that wear patent-leather ahoes may walk through grass follow Ing a tramp along a dusty road to the bettermen of their condition. - Those women who are "sensible," and wear "blacking leather" boots, are luddenly apt to feel fools on such a day. She looked at her feet and was dissatisfied. She was quite plain. Her drab hair was the only part of her person that did not show the dust Her short fig ure was bowed unnecessarily, and she could not afford to lose the Inch which she was now carelessly relax ing. It had been a freak, -a whim, un like her usual conventionality, to be Tague- at luncheon time aa to how she was going to spend one of her brief holiday afternoons, to start in the blazing sun at two o'clock "so as to be back in time for tea," and to walk out from the river town to the river Tillage, where lived the woman she had not seen. But George loved the woman George, who had once said he loved her and that waa enough, because he loved George. She kaew. How do women know? She Joved George. The towing-path ran like a alster anake beside the solemn stream. It wa8 dusty, but not so dusty aa the high road. The Ivied porch of the red house gave upon the towing-path. She wanted to go up and hold on to the quaint Iron gate with both hands, and press her simple face between the bars, and look, and look, and look into the garden of the other woman. Being neither & town nor a country child, she could not do this. She paused and glanced irresolutely at her dusty feet. A gold thing guttered on the path, a heart, with a quaint old embossed and enameled wreath attached to a broken chain. ' She picked it up. All her childhood it had been her dearest possession; then had corns George,.and the heart had passed with her own into George's keeping. And he had given It away! And she had lost him. . . Was there any thing left her anything In the world? The iron gates swung apart, and somebody came out of the garden. There was the rustle of a print gown (but such a print gown!), and a light laugh sounded, that of a woman who has laughed to please men all her life. Heavy black hair in masses above an oval face, hair half a shade less black than the velvet lashes, half a shade blacker than the velvet eyes. iney two looked at each other. "I beg pardon," said the woman who owned the heart to the woman who had owned it "you have found my locket I think. Oh, thank you so much! I missed it and came out to ee if it had fallen anywhere about here." She took it from the other with apologetic grace. "I'm awfully obliged to you. It is! mucn too pretty to lose. Isn't it?" She looked again at the good plain xace, witn its steady eyes, and thouEht: "Poor dear soul, I don't suppose she ever naa a locket la her life!" "It is charming," answered the first woman, i tad one exactly like it once, and I lost It" "Pity!" said the other carelessly. "This was given me by a man, and I don't want to lose it because I am going to send it back to him." She smiled delightfully. "He 1 Interesting friend my husband has, 1 wways say. But now he has made up his mind to be married. This la ail very amusing for you!" The ripples took the laughter and ecnoed it Idly. "Married I to a woman whose name is on the heart acratched verr fin and rather badly. He never noticed it Dut I did. 'Jane.' Saints! Pan a wife named Jane! And now he's go ing 10 nave one. Wherefore, this goes back." (Was there anything now In the worm lert to wish for? Only that George had not been a cad; but that nerer occurred to her, because she waa a good woman.) "May I take itr said George's future wife, softly. "I will give it to Hia. My name Is Jane." 8ky ilgna.. Whether dear or cloudy, a rosy sunset presages fine weather.
