He bought him from a man named Miller. At that time "Romeo" was a likely looking young horse, at least 6 years old. but with out pedigree or known breeding. H-i could trot and he could pace but he was a wild looking "critter. ana most people who didn't know him were afraid to drive him. There was a mortgage of $75 against the animal and Miller couldn't pay it. "I'll lose him anyway." he told Mr. Singer. "He a good horse. Give me five dollars above the mortgage and he is yours." On that proposition the deal was made. Miller had used the horse to chase Jackrabbit across the prairies west of Wichita. Mr. Singer knew this, but he thought little of It until one day when he was riding with Mrs. Singer. The latter was afraid of the horse, because of his show of eplrlt. Reassured by her husband, ahe allowed herself to be persuaded to ride behind him. All went well until "Romeo" saw a Jackrabbtt. Without warning he struck out after It. It was a merry chase, and one which Mr. Singer was powerless to stop for some time, despite his wife's lntreat les. To this day. it Is said, the old horse likes nothing better than to chase Jackrabbits, but the prairies are fenced now, and he gets little oi mm kind of sport. Training for the Race. But it was at the strip opening that "Romeo" became famous. He was not a young horse then, as horses go. He was at least 12 years old, accord ing to Mr. Singer's calculations. There was formed about that time the Pond Creek Townslte company. The Rock Island railroad already had -a depot there, and it w as planned by this company to get to the townslte first If possible. Mr. Singer was a stockholder In the company. Ways and means of getting there had been discussed but none had been adopted. Finally Mr. Singer declared that he had a horse which could go from the Kansas line to Pond Creek depot In an hour and twenty-five minutes. His colleagues were doubtful. "If you can, you will be the first one there," they said. Six weeks before the opening "Ro meo" was put Into training. He was driven every day and was cared for as the occasion demanded.

Reports to the United states government from foreign representatives quote from these Journals statements indicating that .the industry is now facing a situation for which there seems to be no remedy, and the manufacturers of meerschaum pipes and cigar hold ers will have to go out of business or into some other line. They are unable to secure anything like an adequate supply of raw- material, and for the tritlling quantities they can secure must pay a greatly Increased price. In rhe last three years prices of raw meerschaum have about dou bled and. at the same time, America and England have secured control of practically all the meerschaum still to be had. Recently a small ship ment has been received in Germany from Asia Minor the first in some time. An advance of about 30 per cent in price followed Immediately. Practically all known deposits of meerschaum have been exhausted, it being now found only in the mines of Eskl-Schehtr, in Asia Minor, and the -output there Is very aunall.

Kvery day after that he was given work to "harden him." as his owner put It. The clay of the "run" the horse was hitched to a road cart. He was driven to a point about twelve miles west of Caldwell, where some ,".uo people had gathered for the sum- purpose. In the cart were two men. I. X. Singer and O. K. Stewart, the latter also a resident of Wichita then and now. 'I'lir 1 anions Run. "We went back of the crowd about a quarter of a mile." said Mr. Singer In telling the story. "We had a can teen of water and a sponge, both for the horse. 'Old Romey' was champ ing the bit and feeling as good as a colt. When the signal was given, be started. 1 held him back for the lir't ten miles. Of course he went at a pretty good clip, but I mean that he didn't go so fast that he wanted to go faster. He wanted to pass every thing In sight. In the tlrst ten miles, we had passed. I should Judge, about three-fourths of the starters. One man's horse dropped dead Just as we went by him. 'I'll give you $500 to xtop,' he yelled after us as be shook a handful of bills, but we kept mov ing. "As we pawed him. we turned Into the trail. Before that our course had been over the prairie. Then 1 let the old horse out in earnest. We passed a sheriff from one of the coun ties near the line, and he shouted at us that we had the best horse he ever saw. At last there was but one ahead of us, as far as we could see. Sha was a school teacher. She drove a rangy horse something on the order of my own. He was a good one, too. Twice we passed her, but each time she passed us again, as we slowed down to allow Stewart to Jump out and sponge 'Old Romey's' head and mouth as he went. The third time we went by her we told her good-by for all time. Just an hour and ten minutes from the time we got the signal, we pulled into the place where Pond Creek now stands, i ou ought to have heard the soldiers stationed there. We were the first to reach the townslte. That is, we were the first of those who started where we did. Some man, the soldiers told us. passed by from another direction. The school teacher was next. She followed us only a couple of minutes later. W. K. Reeves of Wichita came less than half an hour afterwards. We beat the train about twenty-five minutes. He Is Vet a Good Jloi-. " 'Old Romey' finished the run In good shape. Of course he was warm. We 'cooled him out' gradually, and he didn't miss a feed. That afternoon I drove him about eight miles out across the prairie and back. From the time we started until we got to the townslte I did not touch him with a whip. In fact, I don't suppose 1 have hit him with the whip once for each of the twenty years I have owned him." And "Old Romey" Is still a good horse. He greets his master by rear ing on his hind legs, then at a signal comes at him with ears laid back and gently lays his head on Mr. Singer's shoulder. Every day Mrs. Singer drives the old horse to a bug gy. He Is quiet enough now, but he Is ever ready for a sprint, and he can pull a buggy ten miles In as short a time as any of the younger horses of Wichita. Touch him with a whip and his driver has plenty of trouble hold ing him. "Old Romey" may live a decade yet. output, and German manufacturers ,u" count on no more supplies irom the price of raw meerschaum has ad vanced 5U per cent. The manufacturing town of Ruhla. In the Thuringian forest, will be the most affected. There from 3,000 to 4.000 workmen have for years past been employed in this inuustry. A Ruhla specialty is the meerschaum pipe, and with it goes the manufac ture of pipe stems, pipe lids and mountings, cigar holders, and mouth pieces. The annual output averages 540.000 genuine meerschaum pipes with amber mouthpieces. The first meerschaum factories were founded in Ruhla in 1767. For the Ruhla the passing of the meerschaum industry Is a blow from which it will scarcely be able to recover, practically the entire population being dependent upon this Industry. This industry is quite extensive In Austria, but up to the present there has been no serious complaint regard ing the lack of crude merschaum. though the effect of such a scarcity may be seriously felt later. The pro ductlon of amber is said to have con siderably decreased during the past two years; and as the demand is at present greater than the supply, prices are steadily advancing. ; Forgotten Birthdays. "Birthdays?" he said, smiling as I he looked down his window over the snow-covered landscape of Kdgevvoo 1 farm. "I have forgotten them. I have put them aside. But come again when the summer Is here. We shall have better things then, beautiful things." ills eyes traveled to his plants that surround him on every side, early spring blossoms that he had coaxed Into bloom indoors, cheating the frost of some of its tenderest victims.

There Is noth act like Exercise. Bowels Orurjrjistsy And Tlhey Froni dreams of chicken dinners and apple pies, a dilapidated tramp, dusty f.nd tired, was awakened by loud voices. As he rubbed his eyes he saw, seated on the grass not ten feet away, a young man and a girl. "Yes. Harvey," the girl wns saying, petulantly, for the sun had evidently warped her spirits, "that may be the story you tell me, but Mabelle gave me quite a different version of the affair." Her companion was as cross as she. "Well, of course. Alice," he replied, shortly, "if you think I'm not telling the truth, there Is nothing I can do about it. You ought to take my word against Mabelle's, I should think." So the quarrel Continued. The cuse was not dis closed, but it must have been unimportant, for the gill's capricious fancy son turned to other topics. They laughed and chatted gayly, as If there had been no difference, but there was a 1 1 undertone of irritation that connaiitly threatened to break out again. The man bad a basket of fine peaches, and as they talked they began to eat them slowly. At last there was but one left. The tramp gazed it t it longingly from under the lilac bush. "You ate three and I ate three, ami now there Is Just one left." said the girl. "Youve been a good boy for a while, so you can have this one." "Hut, dear, I don't want It." lie replied. "Well. 1 don't see why. 1 should think you would eat It when I offer It to you first." "Hut I don't want It." , "Xot even when I offer II." "Xo, not even then." The girl was getting angry. "You're mean and selllsh, Harvey, not to take It when I ask you." "Hut, Alice, my dear girl. I don't want the peach, and I won't eat It. That's all there Is to it." His face, too. was Hushed. "You won't do anything for me now." walled Alice. "Xonsense." "Well, I don't care; It's true. Y'ou haven't been ing In sight or sound to Jar upon the senses.

If it be fair weather he drives for an hour or two. If it be stormy he goes out on the wide porch and tramps up and down for a con stitutional. Hence his skin has re served a singularly youthful tone, his llgure Is upright, his gait assured. Ik Marvel rarely sees any one in these days. The visit of a stranger disturbes him. If age has left any mark, it Is in the extreme readiness with which the sensitive nerves are jangled out of tone.

Mitchell Is one of a re markable group of literary giants from whose ranks Thomas Bailey Aldrich has so recently dropped out. Horn in the same year and month as Edward Everett Hale, he has kept pace with tne cnapiain or me sen ate, though with more measured and less emotionally energetic step. v hen he satirized the foibles of the me tropolis in "The Ixirgnette" at the be ginning of the 50's In a series of let ters that made the town ring. Jenny Jnd was singing at Castle Square and the Hungarian patriot, Kossuth, was about to land. The belles and beaux whose weak nesses he exposed, traveien uptown o the fashionable residential quar ter at Union Square by a rapid tran sit route of ancient omnibus horses. The driver nar excellence was "the Third avenue," and Tifth avenue above Madison Square, which had ust been rescued from the oblivion of barren lields, was unknown, save as a common road. Then, dames of high degree still lived in Great Jones stieet and thereabouts; Grace church and old Trinity were those affected by the excluslves. The town was a tingle with excitement over the As tor Place riots, wherein the English actor Macready had so rough an ex ample of American manners, ana the fever of the California gold seekers was in the air. Central park was yet undreamed f and the Atlantic cable not yet laid. A. T. Stewart was one of the greatest figures in the financial world, with his shiploads to famlne-strlcK- en lands, and the crystal paiace standing in Reservoir Square on Murray Hill. Charlotte Brontes books were as much a vogue as wasp waists and the vapors, and the American Xotes of Dickens, fol lowing his visit, the scandal of the literary set. Shut Gates on World. This was the world upon which Ik Marvel shut the gates of Edgewood. He had lived in the vortex and his cosmopolitan training had only crys tallised his conservatism. Those lov able "Reveries of a Bachelor" were written in Venice, while he was fill ing the post of Cnlted States consul there and occupying a house on the Grand canal. He was In Paris when France was on the verge of revolu tion months overflowing with ex perience hence the vividness with which he portrays "The Battle Sum mer." When he returned to Xew York, aglow with its dignity as one of the great capllalB of the world, Mitchell impaled Its follies and graces alike on a brilliant pen of satire, which never lost the gentleness of humor that took oft the edge. But such an environment has little charm. He longed for the dream life the life of the heart and the Imagination. All sorts of books have come from behind that henieloi k hedge at Edge wood stories that have taken the readers Into its intimacy, that have prove, I Ik Marvels tender. human interest in even the foibles at which his hh.ifls were once alined.

"I will do anything that is reasonable." "I don't believe It; If you would, you'd take that peach." "Oh, come, come; this Is foolish." Alice stood up and threw back her head. "Very well, sir. I've stood as much of this treatment as I can. Y'ou w ill please take your choice you may Ither obey my wishes iii this matter or you will leave me at once." With that amazing speech she stalked away, leav ing her lover gazing at the peach, which lay on a stump. Hut trivial as the matter was, he, too, was ob stinate, and, following her example, he walked off In the opposite direction. The hungry hobo under the lilacs stared at the luscious cause of the quarrel. Such a delicate morsel had not been within his grasp for weeks. He crawled out, and, looking cautiously to be sure that the young people were still moving away, he captured the prize and retreated again In his hiding place. Before he had arranged himself comfortably, the man down the lane suddenly turned and started back. He soon reached the grass plot and slopped. Aston ished at the disappearance of the fruit, he looked around for It. 'While he stood there, the girl, looking over her shoulder, saw that he had returned. Slowly she, too, retraced her steps and came back. When within sight of the stump, she saw that the peach was gone. With a relieved laugh, she ran to her lover. "oh. Harvey," she cried, "you've eaten It, haven't you. dear? I've been cross and horrid, and It's awfully good of you to humor me this way." The man took her In his arms and kissed her fer vently, but he said nothing. The tramp, who was just finishing the peach, was also silent and satisfied. By John Andrews. V It -8 Me Book HOW 1 liKCAME A TRAMP. Why did I become a tramp? Be- more money than the average wage cause I could not heln it. I mav as worker. He is a periodic drunkard well state nt the outset that I wns not a student of sociology trying to find out how the "other half" lives. But I felt reasonably positive that I was an abnormally brilliant youth, and would in a few years develop Into a most formidable rival of John D. Rockefeller. So at the age of 13, when I had crammed Into my bend all of the wisdom and stimu lating advice that emanates from the works of Horatio Alger and Har ry Castleman. I ran away from home and set out to seek fame and for tune. I possessed $." in money and a great ignorance of the ways of the world. Two days after leaving home I found myself ejected from a box car on the Northern Pacific railroad In the midst of a North Dakota prairie "dead broke." For two days i went nungry. be- lug ashamed to beg; then a kind- hearted farmer's wife set before me a big bowl of bread and milk and advised me to go back home. I should probably have taken her ad- vice had it not been for the fact that I fell in with a young tramp known as the "Frisco Kid." He had been all over the world, and to me was the personification of all that It is good to know. Under his tutelage I learned rapidly. 1 learned to beg and how to travel on freight trains without paying tri bute to the hrakeman. I learned to lift artistically, and that In order to be iv successful tramp one must not steal. For the true tramp Is not a criminal, in spite of the prevalent belief to the contrary. When hungry he will appropriate to his own use a stray chicken, or raid a vegetable garden. But the tramp is a coward. I learned that in Trampdom there are three separate and distinct castes. First in order is the "gay cat." He Is the novice, the beginner, who is not Initiated into the mysteries of the tramp fraternity. He knows not the tricks and haunts of the profession al beggar. He prefers the open coun try to the city, and will occasionally work for a living. In the ranks of the "gay cats," too, are found a few real criminals young men for the most part, born and bred in the slums of large cities, compelled to forsake stamping grounds where they have become too well known to the police, and by poverty forced into Trampdom. A few years of life on the road makes of the "gay cat" either a professional tramp or an habitual wearer of prison stripes. The word "hobo" is used through out the west to designate all classes of vagrants; but on the road the hobo is an honest workingman out of a job. forced by economic necessity or drink, or both, to wander from plate to place in search of employ ment. The number of hobos in this country runs away up into the thou sands, and they constitute what the political economists ca.ll 'Vlie sur plus labor army," The hobo de spises and is despised by the pro fessional tramp, and he seldom be comes one of them. The "proper stiff" Is the profes sional tramp. Under no circum stances can he be Induced to per form any useful labor. He is pre emlnentlv a beggar, and his wits have by his mode of life. become so sharpened that usually in the An old sore or ulcer is only a symptom, an outlet for the impurities and poisons which are in the blood, and as, long' as this vital fluid remains in this impure, contaminated state the place will never heal.
