One evening last week Mrs. Williams asked her husband to step back into the kitchen and open a big box of gro? ceries which had come from town on I that day. Mr. Williams ripped off the side of < the box and cut a number of heavy twine fastenings, and then be gan handing out the various bundles, which the lady of the house set in or-! derly array upon the kitchen table. "Sugar," she said as a hup> bag was revealed. "and coffee?starch?oat flakes?crackers?what's that thing?" Mr. Williams had dug from the cham? ber of household mysteries a small package which had no particular form and which rattled a bit as he handeld it. "Feels like a hook and staple, or a spoon hook for trolling. Look out or it'll jab you." said Mr. Williams. Eemininty. however, was not content to guess at the identity of the small parcel when by holding to the light the printed paper which was twistetf about it some declaration of object and pur? pose could be gained. She investigated "The mysterious ball and the won? derful ring?the greatest ano most bat? hing of all puzzles." Then she said: "Oh, pshaw! Ir's some foolish puzzle which the grocer-put in as tin adver? tisement. Throw it out into the street." "By no means." said Mr. Williams, with quick decision. "It's valuable." He finished his unpacking before he ex? plained why he thought so. "Now." he said, after tin- packages, had been properly laiti away. "I'll tell you why that puzzle is a Rood thing." "Well, you'll have to use a great deal of argument to convince inc." Mrs. Wil? liams responded. "I think of all the foolish ways for a person to waste time, that which is lost in trying to get a ring off a chain so as to solve a puz? zle is the most blamable." "1 know. That's the usual narrow vii w?excuse me. my dear. 1 speak sim? ply in a general way and without in? tending to be particular as to your case. That's the usual view taken by people, because people do not usually look be? yond the surface of things to see what is below. On the face of it I suppose it does seem silly for a man with a bald head and four grown children to s?t around working away at a little brass ring which is caught fast on some links 'of steel wire. But. I tell you it is really a blessing to a man to do it. Why? The reason is simple. It rests his mind. It takes ail thoughts of business away from him. He is not worried by the values of grain or stocks,- nor is he afiaid his business house' is going to shut down and leave him without em? ployment. You give a man a good, reasonable, bard puzzle and he will get ; over all his troubles and woes, tempo? rarily at any rate. 1 knew of a man who was sentenced to the penitentiary for life and he was not depressed, be | cause at the time of his railroad jour 'ney to the penitentiary he busied him? self on the train with a puzzle, and he was more worried by the rule of the thing which forbade him to bend one of the straight wires than he was by the thought that he would never again be allowed to sei- the city or the river or the greRt tall buildings or his little home which he had spent years in get? ting. O, yes: the puzzles have their us s and they are good. Let's see that one, anyway." He took the puzzle, which was in seven sections, and which was made up. aside from the little brass ring, of wire, wooden balls and a metal disk. Then he looked over the Instructions contain? ed on the paper which had inclosed the thing: "Get tlu- ring off the chain without breaking an/ joints or bending any of the wires." He viewed the puzzle critically for a moment and then smiled. "Of course," he remarked, "when I said that a puzzle is something useful I meant that it must be a hard puzzle. A puor little easily worked puzzle'like this one certainly is objectionable, be? cause no skill is required to solve the proposition. I see how it is-to be done. And t want to stop right here, my dear, to tell you something about the work? ing of puzzles. The way to-'start Is to hold the thing up to view and mentally determine what is to be done and how, and then expeditiously do it. This tiling- or twisting and fooling at it In a haphazzai-d way is no way at all. It is just a case of accident if you get it right and then you don't know how it is to be done any more than you did before. That way of going at a puzzle is like a carpenter starting in to build some kind of a house without plans or specitications or drawings. He takes a saw and cuts up all the lumber in sieht and nails it together just as he hap? pens to reach it and without regard for symmetry or purpose he constructs an edifice that is like a lumber vard struck by a cyclone. That is to say. he doesn't do that either, for a car? penter works by prearranged plans and knows just w hat to dp. Hut if he were to start about his job in the way I have described he w ool.I I.xactly "like the man trying to work a puzzle by twist? ing ami pushing and hauling in a ran? dom fashion." "Do you know how to do this puzzle? Have you found out the plan'.' .Mrs. Williams inquired. "Oh. yes; it is this way." He held it up an.I continue.I bis .lis "V.iu see this chain is arranged in a double loop in combination with a slip knot. If it was siring instead of un? bending wire all I should have to do would be to pull this end. so. and throw open this loop. s.v. and there you would be. As it is I .1.. this." An.I he took one end of the wire an.I started it through one of the elongated hoops. But when it got half way something seemed to be wrong. "I don't believe that is the way." Mrs. Williams observed. "Because you may notice, dear, that the wooden ball is much too big to go through there." "By George, that's so." Mr. Wollam's said, looking studiously tit (he tangle of ball ami wire an.1 ring ami disk. "Still." persistently, "Dint's the way It ought to. go. It's that double loop system. 1 tell you." >> "But. the little paper says it all works easily when you get it right, and that there need be no squeezing or wrench? ing:" "Yes?I know?and that's right?of course; but it seems to m. ? well. I'll try it at the oth.-r .-nil. I'll turn this ball down over the other dofunny and bring the disk up to?ah. yes! That's it'. Aha! Aha! Vou bet you!" He shot the ball across the back and made a few nim? ble movements with his lingers, talking jubilantly as lie worked. At last he ceased to accompany himself with speech, and then, after some moments of silent manipulation, hit., the puzzle in the palm of his hand, a pyramidal, gleaming heap. "jOh, have you got it off?" inquired Mrs. Williams. "I'm glad, but still I believe you did just what you said you oughtn't to do. 1 believe you did it in a random accidental way. without carefully calculating the why and how. There's no credit to you for getting the ring off the chain that-" "Oh, don't be so exercised in spirit. Tf it's any comfort to you I'll tell you that I haven't got it off. It's on there still." "Oh." said Mrs. Williams, in grateful confusion. Mr. Williams took it up again and looked intently at it. Then he spoke. "The man." he said, "who printed that piece of paper with lying words about this puzzle is a fool as well as a. knave. He Hod when he said that the ring could be taken oft*, and he is. a fool for believing that any on.- will credit Iiis statement. It's the most preposter? ous and ridiculous think I ever heard of. You might as well say you could crowd the sun through a croquet wick? et as to say thai that ball could be run through that loop so as to let the ring out." "But the paper doesn't say anything about the ball-" "It's ait the same. That's the only way to get it off. The man is a. fool?a silly, nonsensical, doddering fool. An.I the only other fool in the world who excels him is the fool wh>> wastes time trying to do his fool of a puzzle?or any other puzzle!" and he threw the cou livance upon the table and stalked an? gry away. "1 should think you wo<ai? be in bettor business yourself." he call? ed back, seeing that Ml--. Williams had picked up the puzzle. Mrs. Williams nervously twisted the bits of m.-tal in her lingers, without any special (object, ami suddenly she felt something separate, ami opening her hand she discovered that the ring was off. But she was a good and faith? ful and loving wife, and did not t. II her husband. CORBETT AND M'COY T< > FIGHT. < By Telegraph.) NORFOLK. VA.. July 11.?George F. Considine. representing James J.

NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE. NEW YORK, July 14.?The stock market showed a firm resistance t>. pressure all day and when the news was received that Santiago had surren? dered on our terms a vigorous upward movement set In which wiped out a large part of the losses incurred in yes? terday's bear raid. The fear of the in? troduction of yellow fever In this coun? try if it should gain o foothold among our forces had as much to do with yes? terday's decline as did the fears of a military set back. This was indicated by the sharp recovery today in sue stocks as Louisville and Nashville and Southern railway preferred. There v a brief period of depression at the opening due to sympathy with London, where the belief prevailed that the Spaniards would refuse to surrender Santiago and thus necessitate a long siege. Net gains in most active stocks were near a point, and in some cases, nota? bly Omaha and Hawaiian commercial, gains exceeded two points. The entire absorption of the government loan by small subscriptions seems practically* assured. There is no doubt that this will release considerable sums of money held bv the banks, corporations and syndicates as reserves against bids for large amounts of the bonds. As an ob? ject lesson of the wealth and resources of the country this subscription of a $200.000.000 loan bearing interest below the ruling savings bank rate is expect? ed to have a striking effect. Tie- movement in speculative bonds | continues large today and the upw: course of prices was resumed, traders covering short contracts put out 3 lerday. Total sales, $3,920.000. Atcbison.
