Millionaire's Wife Her
Own vScrub Woman
(From th Huston Post.)
Mrs. JnrncK I Henry, of I. Inc.. In.
N. II., nlthouith her husband Is worth
tnorr than twenty million dollars,
toes not like to play the fine laily,
bat prefers Instead to scrub her own
floors and to lend the humdrum ex
istence of n helpmeet to a $10 a week
clerk.
She mlKht have her every wish
jmitifled and a retinue of servants at
her beck and call, but that would
take away the pleasure of standing
by a white heated range and rooking
her daily repiiMt, so she sticks to the
simple life.
In her younger days she whs con
sidered the prettiest girl and neatest
housekeeper In .heV native town, so,
now that her husband Is the lumber
king: of New Kngland and the nomi
nal owner of an entire township, with
Its ragged forests extending fur miles
around, she still adheres to the tra
ditions of her childhood and remains
to those hundreds of hard working
men and women who depend on her
husband for their dally existence a
model of what n mother and wife
should be.
Mnv Henry, though nhe owns fine
diamonds and .sealskins, leaves all
fanhlon and style in dress and house
hold furnishings to her sons' wives
and her two married daughters In
far-off Minnesota.
She loves best to "putter" about in
her small kitchen, clad In a gingham
dress that couldn't cost more than
S5, frying crisp, golden brown dough
outa or baking big loaves of bread,
and afternoons. In her white shirt
wilut and ample black skirt, with
her white hair combed tightly back
from her wrinkled forehead for she
la Just her husband's age of seventy
Ihre to take a little siesta before sit
ting down in the prime country par
lor with Its K"t and black clock, Its
stilt looking1 photographs of the liv
ing: and dead, its crocheted tidies
pinned to the chair backs anil its
highly colored pictures.
Sli Is l p With the Hints.
ITp with the birds at 6 o'clock In
the morning, this millionaire's wife
dons her simple house frown and
starts for the kitchen, where, like
her mother and grandmother before
her. she .busies herself In getting the
-mornlwr- im-al.
Sometimes she has a young girl,
who helps, but even she does nothing
ave under the watchful eye of her
white, haired mistress.
When the Post reporter called,
Mrs. Henry, her face scarlet from the
heat of the stove, was far more in
terested In the exact shade of brown
ing; to be accorded the ham and eggs
than in discussing mere millions.
"My husband used to drive a
stage," she said. "Then he owned a
atajre and afterwards we moved to
Littleton, where he had a small saw
nlH. "But we came here fifteen years
ago from Fabyans, buying a little
Umber land ut a time, till now we
own 90,000 acres, clear to the foot
of Mount Washington.
"Yes, we own every house in the
village, but the church and depot,
and all the mountains, too. But Mr.
Henry Isn't well and sometimes I
think, though I love these mountains
and all, I'd rather be where there
are more facilities," she went on with
a. little sigh, "for now we're getting
old, 75, each of us."
"Old Man" Henry is shrewd and
thrifty enough to warrant all sorts
of stories which, have pased from
mouth to mouth till they have at last
come to be a tradition and brought
about his likening to Rockefeller,
with Just one weakness for showy
diamond studs and., rings to make
him picturesque.
All their money has been made in
the past fifteen years. Fifteen years
ago Mr. Henry was a poor man, com
paratively speaking. For a mere
song he bought acres upon acres of
timber land in the heart of the White
mountain range, close to Mount
Wahington.
Timber IjuhIs Yield Ml II Ions.
As fast as he sold the timber he
bought more adjoining land. Today
he owns 80. ODD acres of land, from
the boundary line of the town of
Lincoln clear to the foot of Mount
Washington, has a plant worth all
of twenty million dollars, and money
invested In other enterprises, all
bringing him and his three sons en
ormous returns.
Almost all of the adults among the
population of l.uOO are employed by
the Henrys, father and sons, for the
elder Mr. Henry's health has recent
ly grown very poor and the real
work of carrying on the business de
volves upon the trio of sons, George.
John and Charles.
fcach one of the Henry sons Is
murrled. Consequently there are
four nice looking houses In the town
while all the rest of the tiny or more
dwelings are smull cottages, painted
yellow, with red trimmings.
About 800 people are employed In
Ihe Henry mills.
Not only do they pay rent to their
employers, but they also buy all their
provitiions at the one place in the
town, a corporation store also owned
by the Henry family.
The only hotel, the Lincoln house,
is also owned by the Henrys, who
employ a man and his wife to run
It for them. In wimraer there are
many tourist guests, and a good many
of the clerks and bookkeepers, em
ployed in the Henry mills, live there
-all the year round.
Then there is a corporation board
ing house owned by the Henrys, kept
by a woman who buys her provisions
at the Henry corporation store, and
(ho atory has it that a further profit
if no much per capita for the mat
ter of privilege is also added to the
ver growing Henry income.
The tiny coop, called Jail, and the
till tinier building designated as the
public library, the Kpiscopal church,
put up at the Instigation of John
Henry's wife, these, too, are owned
by "Old man Henry," as everyone
.calls him. Court is held, whenever
occasion requires. In the corporation
store.

ing it down to the landings along the
railroad, from whence It Is conveyed
to the pond by the side of the saw
mill, fifteen miles away, drawn up by
a chain and caught up by the mill.
It is in timber that Henry found
the fortune which has raised him up
from the humble position of n small
mill owner In Fabyans to a million
aire.
"There is timber enough left In
the Henry possessions to last for
twenty years more of dally cutting,"
said a shrewd business man of the
town.
But Mr. Henry, in purchasing tim
ber land, did not confine himself to
one locality.
hen his New Hampshire timber
began to yield him golden dollars, he
purchased more In California the
red wood timberlands, which not
long ago he sold for four million dol
lars.
There Is, in addition to the Catho
lic and the Episcopal churches, In the
town a Itaptist church, which meets
In the hall over the schoolhouse.
though the two latter are dependent
upon the services of an occasional
pastor, who in the summer may be
there every week and in the winter
but every other month.

cares to pay fifty cents a month and
bout all of them do becomes en

there Is a comfortable hospital with
twenty or more beds, though bo

There are three school teachers,
about 125, pupils of all ages, a regu
larly employed night policeman,
whose duty it is to watch for burg
lars and fires, and one day police
man, who works in the mill and
whose chief duty It Is to arrest the
occasional drunks.
There Is a good water system, fire
system and an electric power station
built by the Henrys at a cost of half
a million.
In addition to this, there is no soft
coal smoke nuisance, for everyone
burns wood. The Henrys sell It at
$6 a cord to their employees and
burn it In their own boilers.

The Girl Who
Doesn't Know
(Ily IW-ntrUv Fairfax, In IO Angeles
Examiner.)
H.irdly a day passes but we read In
l he newspapers the story of some
foolish, wayward little girl who has
considered that she knows more than
her parents and all the rest of the
world put together.
She wns tired of school and wanted
to get out Into the world, to see life,
to go on the stage, perhaps.
In this frame of mind the poor
baby Is the willing prey of the first
good-looking man she meets.
So she starts gaily on the down
ward path, the path that In a few
years she would give her very soul
to climb back again.
iShe does not realize how far she
1.4 going; she is not bad at heart; she
only wants a good time and pretty
clothes, but girls often pay very dear
ly for a little fun and a pretty frock.
If a girl has any talent for the
stage there Is no reason why she
should not put her talent to some
use, but she should first win her par
ents' consent and should be well
cl.nperoned.
There are, however, hundreds of
Kill who are pining for stage life
simply because they long for the ex
citement and glamour of It. They
Imagine It' to be one long series of
applause, suppers, pretty clothes and
gaiety.
n the contrary, the women who
make a success on the stage are as
hard worked as any women In the
world.
Now, little Kills, I want to advise
you to. first of all, try and be good
girls, good daughters, and absorb all
the education you can. The most Im
portant ting for each of you to grow
Into Is n good woman.

Retires
(Tokekn, Kan., Capital.
After a continuous and faithful
service for twenty-six years, Kdward
Parson, the oldest employee In the
Santa Fe general offices, is to be re
tired on a pension of $20 n month
on May l.v Mr. Parson has journeyed
through life for 78 years, almost ex
actly one-third of which time he hns
been in the employ of the Santa Fe.
His retirement Is the result of the
Santa Fe pension system which
President Ripley anounced the first
of the year, by which employees who
have been long In the service will
be retired on part pay after having
reached old age. Although his hair
and henrd are snowy white and his
step is beginning to show the effect
of the burden of years that he car
ries, Mr. Parson insists that he Is
good for a number of years more of
light work. For almost twenty years
of the twenty-six he has spent Tn the
employ of the Santa Fe Mr. Parson
has been a clerk In the freight audi
tor's office, which he entered in i883.
Mr. Parson's connection with the
Santa Fe dates back to 1880, when he
entered the employ of the road as
train baggageman and operator. This
was In the days when each train car
ried 1111 operator, who wired In to
headquarters for orders when the
trains were running In the thinly set
tled district where it was miles and
miles between stations. The train

The first downward step Is gadding

I do not see young girls sauntering
along, looking 11 though they had
nothing on earth to do. There Is al
ways something better to do than Idle
away the precious, flying hours In
aimless wanderings.
If they were taking a good, brisk
walk I would not criticize them, for
then they would be exercising their
muscles and getting rosy cheeks.
Hut that slow saunter won't do them
a bit of good.
You know, girls, that it Is no com
pliment to have a man try to flirt
with you In the street. If you do not
encourage him he will soon grow
tired of It. Hut If you look at him
boldly and return his glances he,
most naturally, will think you are
ready to meet him half way.
He may think you pretty, but he
won't have a shred of respect for
you, nnd that is something that the
greatest beauty on earth can't af
ford to dispense with.
Never get it Into your head that
you are too grown up to go to your

everything you are safe. She Is your
best friend and she always knows
best.

a friendship with any one whom you
cannot invite nnd who is not willing
to go to your home and meet your

the best thing that any of you can

To fast from comb and soap.
"Halloo, my friend! a brood like that
Should head the other way;
The land Is broad, nnd free, and fat
tlo take it while you may."
Kalstng his glazed and dirty sleeve,
He gave his mouth a wipe.
And answered, with a sighing heave;
"Stranger, pawpaws is ripe!
"Don't tell me of your corn and
wheat
What do I care forjdeh?
lVm't say your schools Is hard to
beat,
And Kansas soil is rich.
Stranger, a year's been lost by me,
Seurchln' your Kansas siles.
And not a pawpaw did I see.
For miles, and miles, and miles!
"Missouri's good enough for me;
i n uiiiuiHi iiinoer b wiue,
! The best of llvln' thar Is free,
i And spread on every side.
In course, the health ain't good

1 home!
I (iip up! Pawpaws Is ripe!"
' He cracked his w hip, and off they
went,
The mule and cow and dogs,
I watched them till they all were
blent
With distant haze nnd fogs:
And as the blue smoke heavenward
curled
l'p from his corn cob pipe.
He dreamed not of that better world.
For here pawpaws are ripe!

Rood paint from baj by Just looking
.-it n pot of paint. It's only after It

a few months that you can see the
effects of poor paint. Then it is too
late. If you buy your paints of us
you always get good paint the kind
