cheeks and with a way of standing that makes
one's heart go right out to him! To think that
he is getting so proud that he objects to being
gathered up into hungry arms, becoming so
ambitious that the first thing you know he is
taking advantage of you by actually taking off
the kilt and trotting around in bare knees and
in trousers which are. of course, of the same
stuff as the kilt and meant to be -hidden by it.
That is what many a mother has caught her
boy at before he was out of the kindergarten.
Time dies! Get your boy into kilts as soon as
possible, that his ambition may not cut short

he is into trousers the "little boy" is gone.
A 3aan surr.
A sailor suit for a boy from eight to eleven
years of age is shown In the last picture. The
blouse has an elastie in the bottom and closes
beneath a box pleas in front. The wide collar
is pointed in front, but square in the back, and
is made of pale blue cloth. Around the edge is
a gilt braid. Blouse and trousers are of dark
blue cheviot.
The mother's promenade costume includes
a very becoming jacket. It is tight in the
back, but the front are biased at each side in
order to give the pleats below the waist, as
seen in the illustration. The belt is of faille
ribbon, covered with guipured lace, and has a
bow of the same ribbon in front and back. The
jacket fastens in the center and has revere of
faille ribbon covered with lace like the belt and
meeting in a point above the latter. The faille
collar is covered with lace. The full puffed
sleeves are trimmed with lace at the wrists and
ornamented with ribbon bows. Her toque is
ot black lace, having the design outlined with
gold threads. In front there is placed a peas
ant bow of lace and a yellow aigrette. In back
is a bow of black velvet, and the tie strings are
also of black velvet.
Too many of the stiffened and pleated epan
lettes that are appled to gowns at the shoulders
to give the new breadth there are left unlined.
They are very stiff, and they set out over and
beyond the shoulders, m-ike a rounded curve
as they narrow into a bertha effect front and
back, and the under Lide is sure to show. It
is distinctly disenchanting to e the ugly
c-inoline. Of course we all know the ruffle
thing is not stiff of itself. but don't make us
remember it in that crude, rough way.

Preminent Berlin Banks Think the United
states N4eedls a State Bank.
The firm of which the late Blaron Bleichiroder,
the famous financier and friend of Prince Bis
mearch, was the chief, and which still holds a
leading place in German finance, states in an in
terview that Germany is much surprised at the
falling prices in America. It was expected that
an increase of business and a con iequent rise
et prices would follow the opening
of the Chicago world's fair. The
only apparent reason, the firm states,
for the condition of affairs in America Is
the unsettled condition of the silver question
and the absence In America of a state bank
similar to that of Germany. Both Germany
and England would be glad to have the
silver question settled by the Brus
saes monetary conference, or in
any other way. Germany, however, will not
adopt bimetalism. Germany owes its Inlune
tial position to a sound gold policy. The key
to the political position lies in London.
It was added in the expression of opinion by
Ba Blceroder firm that they did not regard
the proposed Intervention of the Bank of
England in aid of Australian banks with favor,
and thought this expedient would result more
unfavorably than in the case of tho Barimga.

A special from Spokane says: The floodi
throughout northern Idaho and the westen
part of this state have reached the lighesi
point known to the oldest residents, and the
amage already done will amount to many
hundreds of thousands of dollars. Several of
the largest railway bridges on the Union Pacific
Northern Pacific and Great Northern have been
washed out. Man" of the finest farms in the
section are flooded and crops are entirely de
stroyed. Many families are camping on the
hills, having lost nearly everything.
Great fesars are entertained for the safety of
the mills and houses along the banks of the
river in :bis city, for if the water continues to
rise for the iiext three days as it has for three
past, several millhon dollars' worth of property
will be destroyed.
The water was never sohigh In Spokane river,

and hay stacks can be seen going down the

THERE IS A WHOLE
library of romance in
the waste paper of the
government. At the
treasury trusted women
are employed to do
nothing else but go over
the contents of the do
partmpnt srap baskets.
This task they perform
" p .' chiefly for the purpose
of picking out the
money which now and
then finds its way into
such receptacles. Quite often considerable
sums have been discovered in this manner.
On one occasion a package of signed warrants
from the office of the first controller, represent
ing many thousands of dollars, was come across
among the refuse. Where such enormous
quantities of cash in different shapes are
handled daily it is not surprising that some of it
should be lost and should eventually reach the
place of deposit for all waifs and strays.
in axPuas waAPP'aas.
Money is most frequently found in express
wrappers which have contained sums in paper
notes and certificates sent in for redemption by
banks. The remitter is obliged in every such
case to pay the charges both ways. Very often,
at the last moment, he will slip into the parcel
the amount in change required for the return
transportation. As likely as not the coins drop
between the folds of the stiff brown paper en
velope and conceal themselves. They are not
discovered until the wrappers are carefully
torn to pieces in the waste room. In some
cases they are only disclosed by tearing of the
seals, beneath which they have hidden them
selves away. The sealing wax is all removed
from the scraps and burned, to get rid of it.
Love letters written by treasury clerks of both
sexes to one another and esrelessly thrown
away not seldom afford amusement to the
sorters.

Large quantities of what will eventually be
como waste paper are contributed just now by
office seekers. From 1.200 to 1,500 letters a day
are received by President Cleveland,and Private
Secretary Thurber gets about 300 per diem in
addition. Col. Crook, who has been attached
to the White House staff ever since Lincoln's
time, says that the mail delivered at the Exec
utive Mansion has never before averaged one
half of its present volume. Telegrams come in
at the rate of 300 every twenty-four hours, and
of these three-fourths are recommendations of
candidates for government places. All of the
letters are opened by Executive Clerk O'Brien,
except those known to be private. which' are
sent to Mr. Thurber's desk. The missives
fierked "private and personal" are nearly
always from total strangers who want some
thing. Such communications in the ordinary
run are not referred to Mr. Thurber, but are
sent direct to the departments.
THI PassrDaxT's sPEcIsS, sAsE?.
Only the selected letters go to Private Secre
tary Thurber. He sorts them over, picking
out those which require Mr. Cleveland's per
sonal attention. These are put in a special
basket by themselves and are called "Presi
dent's budget." At night, after all other work
is nished, the budget is gone throngh by Mr.
Cleveland and 31r. Thurber together. Often it
is 2 a. m. before it is done with. All of the
communications received by mail at the White
House are packed after a while in wooden
boxes and eventually they are torn into pieces
and burned. This rule does.not apply to mis
sives which are really important. They are
kept on file permanently. There is at the Ex
ecutive Mansion a so-called "eccentric file," on
which all letters from palpable cranks are put.
Most of these contain threats and warnings.
This ile has been kept ever since the episode
of Guitan, who wrote many such notes before
he shot President Garnied. Au entirely man
office hunter the other day sent a lock of his
own fiery red hair with his application for the
place, saying that he understood that character
could be divined by a person's capillary traits.

The Department of State always has a good
many secrets to keep. To sell its torn-up and
waste bits of paper to the junk dealer without
discrimination would not do at all. Scraps
might; be put together so as to reveal most
esoteric points in the policy of the administra
tion. Accordingly, all writings of a private
nature that are to be destroyed are burned in
the open fireplace in Secretary Gresham's own
room. His confidential messenger superintends
the operation. T h material thus disposed of
is mostly notes and official memoranda repro
ienting Important diplomatic and other docu
ment. in the preliminary stages of their com
position. All other ref use scraps are put into
the furnace in the basement, because nobodly
has been found to buy the stuff. The Navy
Department has trouble to seli Its waste paver
at 47%s cents per 100 pounds. The War0
partment get 613 cents per 100 pounds, because
much of its refuse paper ilain the shape of trim
mings from the office of records. Th e ards"
of heavy paper used for inscribing the records
of soldiers are of the finest linen substance.
The sheets from which they are cut come half
an inch bigger each way than is wanted, so
that they may be trimmed perfectly square for
cogvenience in fiing.
wAsTE PAPES AT TEE cAPITOL.
The two branches of the national legislature
throw away an immense quantity of papar.
During a short session the doorkeeper of the
House sells *600 worth of it, and the amount is
doubled in the long session. From this end of
the Capitol 100,000 pounds of refuse bills and
laws are carted away to the junk shops during
each Congress. They fetch from *1.25 to *1.40
per 100 pounds. All suich docuraents are kept
for one year in the document room and are
then disposed of. The Senate wastes about
one-quarter as many bills and laws, which are
sold in the same way by the sergeant-at-arms.
Until very recently the miarketmen In Washing
ton used to utilize congressional balls exclu
sively for the purpose of wrapping butter.
They cost almost nothing; the paper was
smooth and god, and there was less oibjection
to ii than to any other printed paper, because
tho primting was only on one side and the lines
were far apart. Besides, people were inter
ested to read on their pats of butter at break
fast sometimes fragments of speeches which
had been made ny able statesmen. One clever
newspaper correspondent writes all of hisa dis
patches on the blank back pages of Senate and
House hills.
There was a junk dealer In Washington a few
years ago who used] to buy great quantities of
valuable public documents from Congressmen.
Eut he conducted his business with such dis
cretion that nobody could trip him up. For
examprle, he would go to a Representative and
make him an offer for his quota of this or that
government publicatioq wbich might happen to
be worth a good urice iid the open market. Hie
did not offer to purchase the books; that was
not his style of doing things. Inuan insinuating
manner he would say: "I would like to borry
these books of you. You can borry 010 of me
at the same time."
ANI INIT~sTITon SUMMARILY ETOPPED.
By this method of reciprocal loans the
dealer got possession of many thousands of
volumes which were printed for the purpose of
being distributed gratis among anxious con
stituents. At length he was formally Investi
gated by a congreseional committee. He re
fused to talk, but, being bullyragged to a con
siderable extent. he finally declared that since
It was insisted en he would speak without re
serve. From an inside pocket he drew out a
memorandum book, from which he proceeded
to read. This book contained brief notes of
his transactions with Congressmen for some
years back. The first entry related to a small
private deal with the chairenan of the investi
gating committee. The latter tried to stop
him, whereupon he asked for protection. The
chairman moved that the committee adjourn,
which it did, and it never met again.

writer on entering a second-hand shop in this
city found a large room stacked almost to the
ceiling with pubin documents. Thise repre
sented the accumulation through many years
of a recently dead Senator. Later the covers
of nearly all of the volumes wore torn of and
the insides were sold as waste paper. A few of
the books were preserved for sale at fanny
prices. The junk dealers say that money some
times turs up in the refuse which they buy
from the departments and elsewhere. One of
them named Hayden got $7 worth of silver
coins in a bag on one occasion. He has also
come across several valuable autograph letters
written by famous men.
A GOODL.T sIPPLT.
The Interior Departmont produces more
waste paper than all the other departments
put together, on account of its great size, in
cluding as it does the pension office, the census
bureau and other branches. A room in the
main building is set apart for the reception of
all such rubbish. Formerly the messengers
were accustomed to dump among it the debris
of lunches, empty inkstands and all sorts of
stuff that reduced the value of the refuse as a
marketable article. At present a watchman Is
appointed to inspect each basketful deposited.
The material fetches 51 cents per 100 pounds.
It is sold to a Arm in Pittsburg. Taking the
year around it averages in quantity nearly
30,000 pounds a month. An odd story is told
of a young woman in the land offie, who
threw away an envelope containing her pay for
two weeks. She discarded it absentmindedly,
thinking that she had taken out the money.
On discovering her mistake she was much
distressed. She did not know where she had
dropped the envelope, but a colored servant
had the gumption to look in the waste paper
room, and there he found it after a search.
Another employs of the Interior Department, a
man this time, on receiving his pay envelope
walked out to lunch and mailed it In a box on
the coner. He recollected himself at ones
and got the envelope back from the postman
when he came along.
ZICITaNmaT IN ALaXANDaIA.
The Post Office Department gets 873 cents
per 100 pounds for its waste paper. During
the last administration a number of opened let
ters were found scattered about on the streets
in Alexandria, a few miles from Washington.
It was at first supposed that there had been a
mail robbery, and there was much excitement.
Investigation disclosed the fact that a junk
dealer in that town had a Contract with the
Postmaster General for purchasing scraps.
Among the latter were dead letters, and of these
some fell out of the bags on their way through
the streets.
DIsPoSITION OF DEAD LETTE5.
All dead letters are disposed of in this man
ner when it is found impossible to deliver them.
This rule, however, does not apply to missives
which contain immoral writings or pictures.
All such stuff is burned in the furnace. Only
the other day a cluster of nine big and queer
looking eocuons was captured at the depart
ment and held as unmailable. The cocoons
werq woven upon a single large twig, which had
evidently been broken from a tree. The clus
ter was fastened to a lace curtain in the dead
Letter Office, and after a few days each cocoon
produced a huge moth of gorgeous colors.
They were all the same variety apparently, hav
ing a spread of about four inches. 'Some of
them made their escape out of the window,
while the others were chloroformed and pre
served.
Tva caAMPrON wasTs rAPS. PRODUCER.
The government urinting office produces by
far more waste paper than does any of the de
partments. It uses up twenty tons of new
paper per diem. Every day it packs up about
four tons of waste for sale to firms in New
York. Pittsburg and Washington. The refuse
is sorted into eight grades. The first and finest,
which fetches 2,1 cents a pound, is ''ledger
shavings" from blanks and blank books. Other
grades are white shavings from books, white
shavings mixed with colored, waste printed
paper, manilla clippings, brown wrap
pers, sweepings and cardboard cut
tings. It is worth mentioning, by the way,
that the bureau of engraving and printing is
obliged to account to the treasury for every
sheet of paper furnished to it for printing
notes and other government securities upon.
All sheets that are torn or otherwise spoiled
must be returned for maceration, together with
dirty money.
PsASLT npnsyTrues za I a=aTarn, '
Few things in this world are so good for noth
ing as not to have some market value. The
refuse paper and rags carried to the ash dump
are worth something. Women gather them and
sell them to the junk dealers. The ash dump is
a mine of wealth to ever so many people who
get their living from it. The broken bricks and
crockery collected on Its surface from day to
day are sold to contractors for $1 a tip-cart
load. They are broken very tine and made into
a mixture for concrete. Old medicine bottles
are purchased at 24 cents a dozen by apothe
caries. Old shoes are sold to the junk men, or,
if they are good enough, they are taken to the
cobbler. In the worst case there is sure to be
some part of the leather that ts perfectly good.
It may be ouly the heel piece or a part of the
upper, but the shoe has a value, though it be
only 2 or 3 cents. Such shoes are "reno
vated" by patching together availabe frag
ments. there is a regular market for footgear
thus restored in New York city.
IN TaE DUMP.
Small boys gather unburned coals on the
dump. All sorts of rags are there, from silk to
calico, and all kinds of paper, from cream-laid
note to the waste stuff that has been taken
from uder carpets. Tin cans are collected for
roiling Into tiles, with which shanties are
roofed. In spring contractors dig into the
heap for ashes, of which they cart away vast
quantities for making into a peculiar mixture.
They take three wheelbarrow loads of sand,
four wheelbarrow loads of ashes snd three
wheelbarrow loads of asphaltum, according to
the recipe. These ingredients they mix to
gether with water and then the preparation is
reedy to use for cementing cellar and basement
floors, a coat of ordinary cement being put on
top of it. Not long ago in Washington a
miser's hoard was conveyed after his death to
such a dump, together with the mass qi refuse
in which it had been incealed. For weeks
afterwvard children were rubbing in the pile
for silver pieces which now and then came to
light. EsNa Bacas.

TEE POLICE COURT.
A Cimh That It ta Noet a United State.
Court.
Yesterday afternoon in the Police Court
Prosecuting A ttorney Pugh called for trial the
cases of John J. Leonard and Timothy
Whalen, chargrd with selling liquor In violation
of law.
Mr. Tobriner appeared for the defendants.
Mr. Pugh amended the informations so as to
make them come within the scope of the court's
decision in another case.
While Mr. Pugh was making his amendments
Mr. Tobriner said he might save some trouble
in the case by informing the court that papers
were being prepared in his office for habeas
corpus proceedings, which would attack the
constitutionality of the court.
He said he would make the attack on the
grounds that the court was not a United States
court for the reason that the judges are ap
pointed for a term and not for liie.
Judge Miller asked counsel what he was going
to do with the decision in the territorial cases,
but Mr. Tobriner thought that decision would
not interfere with his proceedings.
Alter further discussion as to the life appoint
ment of judges of the Police Court, Mr. To
briner asked for a continuance In the Leonard
case, which was granted.
The Whalen case was then put on trial.
Counsel for the defense challenged one juror.
The defendant keeps a grocery store on 15th
street between L and M streets, and It is
charged that he sold liquor.
The usual objections to the information were
made and overruled, and Sergt. Mc'iaggart and
Policeman Lutton were sworn. Mr. Whalen had
a license last year, but was unable to get a re
newal of the license this year. lHe still had his
stock of liquors in the place, but did niot have
the usual bar room appliances. The judge in
structed the juryv to return a verdict of not
guilty, which was done.

The wear and tear of the elements on Niagara
may be better remarked in early spring than
at any other season. Great boulders ore con
tinually falling from the faces of the cliffs,
where they were loosened by the action of the
frost, and the same process no doubt is going
on in the stone under the cataracts. The
erosive power of the waterfall is not so great,
but water, wind and frost together make the
recession of the gorge, particularly on the
Horseshoe side, quite perceptible.

EL IISTERIO.
A STORY OF LIFE ON A BOARD
ING TRAIN IN ARIZONA.
f'M IN A DEUCE OF
a ix, Mary. Lottie is
Sdown with the moun
tain fever, and not a
woman to be had In
this half of Arizona,
excepting greasers and
squaws. Lottie ought
to go home to mother.
The washouts and
bridge repairing keep
the boarding train
lumbering bask and
forth from Rio Puorco
to Holbrook, and the jarring and noise are too
much for her. If you could come out and
oversee things for a week or two until she could
get nursed back to health, it would lift a great
burden from my heart. I'll get a woman in
Albuquerque to help you."
That paragraph in her brother's letter sent
1 ary Roma straight to the managing editor.
"Of course you can go." was Mr. Wilson's
cheery answer, "but don't let the chaws or
Navajos gobble you up. I've been thinking of
sending you out there to write up the boarding
train lifa. As your brother is steward you
ought so be able, with his assistance, to get
material for a series of brisk articles for the
Daily Miner. Keep your eyes open for scoops.
You will start in the morning. The cashier
will have your transportation ready for the
8:30," and with a bow Mr. Wilson dismissed the
subject and Miss Roma at one and the same
time. It was his way; he never wasted words.
Thirty-six hours later Miss Roma was greet
ing her brother, Dick Roma, and his wife. 1
"You ought to have been here twelve hours
ago. What was the matter?" queried Mr.
Roma, after the first greetings.
"There was a bridge washed out at Lagarra,
and we had to shoo-fly around it, then there
was a cloud burst just before we retched Gal
lup. and the engine ran into a land slide," re
plied Miss Roma, as she divested herself of her
wraps. "What time is it, anyhow?" she asked,
with a yawn as Dick left the car. "I'm sleepy
and hungry and tired. Heaven have mercy.
What has broken loose now?" she cried, as she
jammed her lingers in her ears to shut out the
unearthly toots and howls of an engine which
stood right beside the car.
"Your question as to the hour is answered."
replied Lottie, with a sorry attempt at a laugh
at Miss Roma's dismay. "It isn't musical, is It?
It sets my teeth on edge with that diabolical
racket a dozen times a day. The engineer of
97 is simply giving the first call for the man to
get up. It is 5:30."
Just then Mr. Roma looked into the car and
asked his sister to step in and see if the bosses'
dining car was in shape.
"Slumgullion Sam got on a toot last night
and I reckon he's cashed his chips and trailed
out, for he ain't showed up in the game yet
this morning. The new flunky is a tenderfoot
at biscuit shooting, and I wouldn't like to gam
ble on his making an artistic succes of it.
Better hurry up," and then he disappeared.
"Lottie, what on earth does Dick mean? Haa
he forgotten how to speak English?"
"The terriers wouldn't understand him if he
did talk 'United States.' He want you to see
that the flank waiter has the bosses' table
properly set"
"Bt what under the canopy Isthe 'bosses'
table' and to what genus and gender do flun
kies belong?" demanded Miss Roma in wild- 1
eyed amazement, as she hurriedly shed her I
traveling dress for a morning wrapper.
"Oh my! Mary!" sighed Lottie, comically, 1
"you have such a lot to learn yet. Run along I
to Dick and he will enlighten von. Hurry. bo- g
fore ninety-seven sets her music going again, g
or the terriers will run you down. Dick is in
the second car west of this."
"Here you are!" shouted her brother as she
was flying by the step ladder. "Give me your
hand! That's it. You'll have to pervade this
car mighty rapid, for the boeres will be tum
bling in to chuck in about two minutes. I've
got to go to the kitchen and cuss the eoak for
scorching the spuds." and away he went, leav
ing Miss Roma pondering by jerks over the ad
ditions to her vocabulary, and the probable I
outcome of the audacious step she had jnst I
taken, while she "pervaded" the car in which
she had been stranded.
It was a common box car. its interior
painted a ghastly bluish white, which was
streaked brown and vellow where rain had t
oozed through. A dish cupboard partly filled I
one end. Down the center was a long narrow 4
pine table shrouded in "gravestone" oilcloth.
On this clammy banquet board "covers were
laid for twenty guests." Backless benches 4
lined down each side. Here and there on the
bleak epause were grouped plates of bread, I
soup dishes of butter. fly specks and bowls of
sugar. Three lonesome cantors of fil'gree
pewter stood guard in the middle and at each
end. Heaviest of hotel plates and rusty iron
knives and forks completed the cheerless array.
Though the day was well broken, smoky engine
headlights in each end of the car heightened
the unutterable dreariness of that awful banquet
hall.
"All sat, sis?" called Dick, just as his sister
paused by the dish cupboard half inclined to
flee, but before she could answer 97 turned up,
the wide sliding doors flew back and the
''bosses" camie tumbling in to chuck. Out
side, above the noiay badinage of the men just
entered, and above ev-en the demoniacal shrieks
of the engine whistle, Miss lRoma heard the
snarl of angry voices, an unceasing stream of
vilest profanity nnd thud of hurrying feet, and
knew that the terriers were also bent on "feed
ing."
"Just keep your eye on the flunky anee that
he doesn't soldier," adjured Dic~k. as she
shrunk back in the corner nearest the kitchen
car. "I've got to go down and see that the I
chaws don't carve each other instead of the
beef," and he left her to her fate."
"Keep an eye on the flunky," Dick had said,
"I couldii't have kept an eye off of him unless
I had been blind." she afterward told Lottie.
"He fascinated me, because I felt intuitively'
that somewhere in his horizon a story was
lurking, and I was immediately consumed with
a desire to discover it."
The flunky in question was tall and slender
and sinewy. His brown heir hung in curls on
his shoulders and surmounting them was a wide
white sombrero, around which was oiled a
tanned rattler's hide. His blue flannel shirt
flared in a wide collar, well open at the throat,
almost as full atid white as a woman's, and
under the chin was knotted a Rtoman scarf,
caught with a grinning death's head. is
brows velvet trou-ers were held at the waist by
a wide bolt filled with cartridges and weighed
down by a pair of Colt's 453, which hung
in their holsters. His -feet were en
cased in handsome top boots and great
silver spurs jingled at every step. is hand.
were email and shapely and on the third finger
of the right one blazed a mitgnillcent heart
shaped ruby in a circle of small diamonds.
Despite his make up Miss lionma felt sure that
he was of gentle birth, and, moreover, she
know, as a woman always knows things, that he
never rode a herd In his life. He was deft and
quick and the bosses. who. Miss Roma learned
hater, were the superintendeets of the variousa
gangs of railroas, laborers, engineers. &c.,
didn't seem to notice that a "tenderfoot
biscuit shooter" was oti deck. SheI
felt rejoiced that she was not called upon to
interfere, for she had learned in her few
months' newspaper experience that some peo
ple had a restless, not to say peevish, way of
fingering six-shooters when their motives were
impugned. andl while the now flunky had big
blue eyes and a girlish face that dimpled inJ
smiling, whichb he did when he looked her way,
she remembered Shakespeare's apostrophe'to
men who smiled and were still villains, and
meiitally decided that the lines of their two
lives should not cross if she could prevent It. 1
At 8:40, after two hours' acquaintance with
her new calling, she was left mistress of the
situation. Mrs. Romas protested against the
insult to the proprieties, but Dick and his
sister knowing that a life dear to them both de
pended upon the change, sat upon her objec
tioiis with such good natured severity that she
had to yield. Mr. itoms was to return as soon
as his wire was safely ensconced in his mother's I
home. That meant at least two days and a1
night from the boarding train, Miss Rloma'sI
courage receded with the east-bound train, I
and as it disappeared around a distant curve
she sat down to the luxury of a good cry, and
was greatly refreshed by it. While doing her
back hair an idea struck her, and, not pausing I
to chansre her morning wrapper, she deposited
herself in a rocking chair, with her paper pad1
on her knee, and began an article for the
Miner. Her Introduction was scarcely com
pleted when a tap at the open door called her1
attention to the flunky, who lifted his som
brero as she approached.
"The head cook says that the second cook ts
drunk and that he must have other help. What
shall we do?" Without preface he thus opened
his budget of cheerful news.
"I have not the faintest idea," replied Miss
Roma in disnmav. "I suppose you don't have
under studies here or subs"
He smiled a little as he replied coeo sy
"If yonwn ' r=1tnam ,.. rt --.usl_

He hesitated slightly at the word, and Pit

"I am known here as 'El listerso,' " he ae

"Yes," he returned quietly, and is. Roma

The program rendered was widely diversi-.
ed. "Ninety and Nine' was sung once and
gain. There was somnething In Its simple
athos which touched the attey anditors. El
listerio had a clear tenor voice of feir teabre,
rue of tone and intensely sympathetic, He
uggested "My Ain Countrie,"' then they sang
-Juanita." to the Intense delight of Jose, whe
ang with them in Spanish! Then they tried a
iumber of plantation melodies, where El

lesitatingly for hymns.
"Ef It ain't persoomin' too me thIs yore

'Rock of Ages," "Jesus, Lover of My Soul,'
and "Nearer, My God, to Thee." To the un
atterable surprise of Mise Rom the grand old
hymns opened the mouths of the queerly as
orted men, and the splendid chorus of melody
welled and rolied up and out In the sun-bright
air, making echoes among the distant hills,
whose softest sound to that day had been the
avage war cry, Indian revels or engine ecreech.
"Just as I am, without one pica,"
