THE ST. JOHNSBURY CALEDONIAN, JUNE 14, 1899.
An Idyll of the Rail. The attention of everybody in the car was fixed on them as 'soon as thev en tered. He wore an overcoat, slightly frayed, and a heavy scowl; divested him self of the former, revealing a well worn business suit underneath, but retained the latter, addinj? a muttered growl as lie dropped into his parlor chair and un folded his paper, totally oblivious of his companion. She looked nervous and nnjjrv. and the ladies in the car were aware at a glance that her dress had been worn several times before, and that her hat was one of last winter's, made over. Iler arms were laden with pack ages which she dropped with a weary sigh. . . "You might carrv something ! she said snappishlv, as she dropped intoherclmir. "I'm no pack mule," was the surly answer. "No, not a pack mule:" she retorted, with a vicious emphasis on the adjective that f till v pointed her meaning. "Wellsince vou've settled to j our sat isfaction that I'm a mule, perhaps you'll etrni tt viiii to drive me." he sneered. The other passengers brightened up and looked interested. Due cynica ni.-ni with a bald head clmcklet bly, and a plump lady opposite said in a Ktiioc whiMicr. "Poor thing!" The wife looked daggers at the hus band. "I never try to drive you, only fool tries to manage a mule." "You tried hard enough to manage me when vou married me." "Yes. because 1 was a fool then,' sunt mi (1 the wife. The balcl-ncailcci cynic oceanic puipiem the face, and the plump lady gasped, "Pear me!" "There was n pair of us," retorted the husband, ami then buried himself in his paper. The woman fidgeted awhile, then settled into a sullen contemplation of the landscape. Yet neither of them should have lost the glamour of life. He was a good-looking enough chap, tall, broad-tlriuldered and clean-limbed, with a deep set eye and firm, square chin, hlio was more than good-looking; had it not been for the frown that disfigured her white forehead on which lay some pretty little brown curls, and the discontented, unhnppv curve of her red lips, she would have been downright pretty. Presently the woman turned with an angry light in her brown eyes to the man. "If you can possibly spare a mo ment of y'onr valuable time from that newspaper, I wish you'ld raise this win dow a bit," she said ; "it is stifling in this car." "I'll do nothing of the kind," he an swered shortly. "It is verv comfortable, and I don't propose to risk pneumonia merely to gratify your whims." "Brute!" she ejaculated, giving him a look of supreme contempt, then turning to the window she tugged at it till she succeeded in raising it. With a muttered oath the man rose and deliberately shut the window down with u vicious snap. "Don't make a show of your vile tem per," the defeated wile hissed through her noth Irom making "I'll have you know I'm master, so pist make up your mind to that, madam. This window stays down do you under stand?" "Uh, if we poor women only knew whatlirutes men are before we marry them !" sobbed the wife. The bald-headed passenger choked in his handkerchief and the plump lady wiped away a surreptitious tear as she sighed, "Oh, my! oh, my!" Another spell of silence fell, which the husband broke by kicking away with an ill-tempered ejaculation a package which fell from his wife's lap. She exclaimed angrily, "if things annoy you so here, why don't you go in the "smoking car?" "For the simple reason that it would be a satisfaction to you," was the unli able response. She wheeled her chair fiercely about. "I did think you would make a pre tense of treating me well in public, and not go on just as you do at home," she said, in a tone of thorough exasperation. "I was a blasted idiot to bring you at all," be retorted, and ejaculated "Humph" when she dissolved in tears. The bald-headed man looked queer and the plump lady looked pityingly at the brow-beaten wife. The man noticed their glances, and as it anxious to remove the bad impression he saw there, asKen tne bald-headed man a question about the probable effect of annexing the Philip pines. Presently they were deep in a po litical discussion, and the wife gave sev eral grateful glances at the bald-headed passenger, not one of which was lost on him. "We are going to stop a day or so in Iilankville, too," said the husband, when some personal items had been exchanged. "If you know the town so well, perhaps you can recommend me a good hotel." "I can," said the bald-headed passen ger, looking squarely in the other man's eyes, "The Fairview Hotel keeps a good table and it has the best bridal suite in the town." The wife sprang up with a cry of posi tive horror. The plump lady threw her self back in her chair and laughed till the tears ran down her checks. The other passengers grinned. The husband looked furious for an instant, then drew himself up, glared defiantly at the others, and deliberately walking over to lii a wife, planted, with the air of a long faster, a sounding kiss on her cheek, which in stantly flushed scarlet. "It's no use, darling," he said. "It must be intheatmosphcre. Ivverybody's on to us even the old clothes don't go! Arc you really warm ? Shall I open the window for you, pet?"

It savs: "I haveiust returned from a long trip through the interior and ulong the north coast of this province. This, with the preceding trip, completed about ten days ago, has included every town of importance in the province, as well as most ol tuc smnner ouch, i nc yi-upic are all at work, peaceful, contented and, as far as one can sec, fairly happy. Dur ing both trips I was not approached by a beggar, nor did I have a single personal application for assistance. Many of the municipalities are unable to meet current expenses, but the people as a body are improving in general condition, iviwu-u Santa Lucia, near Sama, and the estates of the Iloston Fruit Company near Panes. Everything at these places was quiet, and there was no brigandage there. The reports which had alarmed them were, as lar as I could learn, circu lated by an old scoundrel called Feria. He has'spetit his time, apparently, in cir culating reports of brigandage, nnd act ually inciting some ignorant men tocom mitting some lawless acts in order to give color to his reports, and following up thi3 work with telegrams to Havana requesting that he be authorized to pursue the bandits, and incidentally be given a command and big pay. I took him off quietly and told him that my orders to my officers and to the Guardia Rural were to give all men of his descrip tion a short shift if they weie caught en gaged in any work of this sort ; that he was a marked individual, was closely watched and would be summarily dealt with. Most of these reports that have reached you have been gotten tip in this way, and they mean nothing. Now and then there is a case of stealing or robbery, i ust as there is in all our Western states, but nothing more. "The whole problem today in Cuba is work. Put the idle people who are now rending the incendiary press to work, relegate to a back scat the politicians, whose present importance rests solely on the attentions thev are receiving from our oeonle. and thev will not have fol lowers enough left to give them the slightest importance or weight in the community. Agitators have tried to stir up the people of this province, but they cannot do it, simply because we have given the people something to do mil nut tncin in a condition so gouu that they will not leave it for a lawless life unless absolutely forced to. The peo ple who are creating the disturbances today in Cuba do not represent 2 per cent, of the oooulation. "I was ordered last winter by General Chaffee, in the name of the commanding general, to take summary measures against the press in case thev used disre spectful language about the American administration. I have not had occa sion to take any action, but I called them together and warned them against print ing any incendiary articles or discussing aominisira An Anecdote of One of the Original "New Women." Justin McCarthy, in his Reminiscences, published by Harper & Brothers, relates the following anecdote of an ardent champion of "woman's rights." "i mn onlvsav." writes Mr. McCarthy, "that by far the majority of the women whom I knew as leading exponents of the movement were women of high char acter and education, women of intelli gence and experience, of gentle deport ment and graceful manners, women qual ified to bear a high place and to exert a commanding influence in the civilization of any country. "I am not going to say, however, that there were not a good many advocates of the cause in America whose appear ance and ways might have been tempt ing to the pen of the satirist or the pencil ol the caricaturist. I can recall to mem ory one such woman of whom I never heard anything that was not good, but ol whom I may fairly say that if some artist on the stall oi I'uncn nan ucen asked to make a drawing of the type Woman's Kights Woman of America, he would without further suggestion have produced from his own imagination a very fair likeness of the lady whom I have in my mind. I remember that my wife and I once happened to be travelling oirpamons with this lady in tne rail way Irom New York to Chicago. 1 he fair creature of whom I was speaking was preparing to get into her berth, and while doing so was discoursing to us on the social oosition of women. 'I am not .. . . ' . . , ! . i i.:..,n.. a one ol those, sue saui, in uer numij m dactic manner, 'who would deny to women the right to make herself ph asing to man; I am not one ol those wno wnn Id forbid to women the indulgence in any of the pretty, harmless allectations which are common to ncr sex ; unu neiv, with the utmost absence of any pretty affectation, she removed the greater por tion of her hair and hung k on a hook above her head, and then proceeded to draw on a heavily frilled nightcap. teeth. "I'll keep still and smother, if disrespectlully the American administra hing else will keep vour selfishness tion. I do not personally believe tha m making a scene." " "' notice should be taken of them utiles t CSS their articles arc actually incendiary, as paying any attention to them simply ex aggerates their importance in the eyes of their own people. There are no Cuban troops in arms in this province, abso lutely not a man, and yet we have here more than two-fifths of the entire Cuban army and most of its desperate officers. It is' impossible for them to take their men from their fields and homes. In short, the whole question is a question of labor, not of politics, nnd the factions warring in the press would be immedi ately without support could their idle followers become engaged in any kind of work. I believe there is money enough, with the revenues, toaccomplishthisend, not to the detriment of our administra tion, but to its everlasting benefit." A gooil appetite Is essential to good health. Hood's Sarsaparilla creates nn Appetite, tones and Strengthens the stomach, And builds up the whole svstem. It relieves that tired feeling, nnd by purifying and enriching the blood, it promptly and permanently cures nil scrofula eruptions, boils, humors, pimples and sores; strengthens the nerves, and gives sweet, refreshing sleep. No other medicine has taken such hold upon the confidence of the people as Hood's Sarsa parilla, and its record of great cures is unequalled by any other preparation. You may take Hood's Sarsaparilla with the utmost confidence that it will do you good. Mrs. A. told her new man-servant (a colored youth from the country) to make a fire in the drawing-room the other dav. Coming in soon after, she found him hopelessly contemplating the andi rons, tongs, etc., with a pile of logs by his side large enough to warm a regiment. Relations with Spain. Nothing would seem to stand in the way of the early resumption of very cor dial relations between the United States and Spain. The last installment of the $20,000,000 Philippine indemnity has been duly paid over by our Government. Spaniards and Spanish interests in Cuba are looking to the United States for jus tice and fair play, with a lull sense ol security nnd with no ill-feeling whatever. Among the good results of the war and the peace treaty must be mentioned the wiping out of all claims on the part of the citiens nnd government of the one country against the other arising out of the circumstances of the Cuban war of rebellion. Thus Spain is debarred from making any claims against the United States on the score of filibustering and the fitting out of unlawful expeditions analogous to our Alabamaclnimsugainst England. American citiznis who owned property in Cuba will not, on the other hand, bring claims against Spain for losses incurred by them in the period of the insurrection. The war liquidated all old scores, nud the United States and Spain begin their new account on a clean slate. As victors, the American people have no possible ground for cherishing any grudges; nnd Spaniards cannot afford to indulge any permanent ill-will. The Spanish press has for the most part entirely dropped the subject of war, al though I ncle Sum s tribulations in the Philippines form the theme of an occa sional sarcastic paragraph or jeering car toon From "The Progress of the World," in the American Monthly Re view of Reviews for June. City Without Wrapping Paper. Such n thing os the delivery of goods from retail stores is unknown in Manila, and even wrapping them up to beenrried by the purchaser is not considered n nec essity. H one goes into n tobacconist's for n boxofcigars.it is handed to him over the counter unwrapped. II he, by panto- mime or the use of his "Spanish at a glance," succeeds in conveying the intelli gence that he desires the purchase wrapped up, a search is instituted lor a piece ot newspaper, and n this ue loumi the box is enveloped in it and handed to him with u courtly bow, but without string. lew bakery wagons may DC seen going from house to house, and ice carts and soda water carts, out beyond these, regular delivery vehicles arc unknown. Nor is the early morning made mclo dious by the clatter ot milk wagons Genuine cow's milk is a scarce article there. The water buffalo supplies most of the milk used: a snow-white liquid containing little cream and having a high flavor none too pleasant to the American palate, mere arc a tew aus tralian cattle kept in the suburbs of Ma nilia, apparently of Durham and Devon extraction, but their milk is liquid gold in comparison with the other. Instead of milk, bare-legged milkmen trot about with long-necked jars. The Conscience Fund. God knows the donor and his sin," was the line accompanying a note ad dressed to the treasurer ol the United States at Washington and containing three crisp $1000 bills. The money was turned into the "conscience fund. It is not generally known that such a fund exists: vet although it is not very important, it is a regular source for the government. It is supplied by a certain class of people abnormally honest. man whose ideas of the niceties of con science amount to insanity decides that in some manner or other he was de frauded Uncle Sam. He immediately in closes the omout in an envelope and sends it to the treasury. The excuses given and the manners of signing are humorous in the extreme. Yet it is evi dent that the contributors are in sober earnest. It has been calculated that, if this dis ease should become epidemic the amount on hand in the treasury would exceed the output by some $2,000,000,ouu per annum. A man who will do tne govern ment full and exact justice is so exceed ingly scarce that the above members of the conscience lund are iookco upon as little less than lunatics.-Cincinnati En quirer. Seeing Stars In Daytime. The phenomenon of people seeing stars in the daytime is not at all nn unusual one. savs the Westminster Gazette. As a rule, however the circumstances under which these heavenly bodies become visi blc by daylight arc not of the sort which make the" sight of them desirable. But to see a rainbow at midnight, and under conditions which leave nothing to be desired, is a much rarer occurrence. It was witnessed a few nights ago in Swit zerland. The moon was shining in a brilliantly clear sky, and round it spread a circle, in which all the colors of the rainbow gleamed. And any loyal and literarv Switzer witnessing the phenom enon might well be proud of seeing in real lfe the "strange and wondrous token, which, so Schiller says, shone on the night when Tell and his friends swore the great oath on the Kutli, a thousand years ago. Paper Collars. Two paper collar plants are still run ning in this country, one in New York and the other in Boston, and their an nual output is from 20,000,000 to 25,. 000,000 collars. The demand for their products is distributed impartially among the states, railroad towns and mining districts supplying the largest number of consumers. In several towns in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Illinois, paper collars are the only kind sold, it is suid. Canada still continues to use tne articles n ounntity, and in Nova hcotia and Primv Rilwnrd'n Inland as many paper collars are worn now as during the flush tim nf the nirtii-9. The South Ameri can countries are also good customers of the paper collar manufacturers, althougn their present consumption is nothing like that of thirty years ago. Hypnotized by a Headlight. The use of electric headlights by some of the engines of the Santa Fe, Prescott and Phoenix railway in Arizona enables the engineers to see some strange things. Wild animals are said to be hypnotized by the bright lights, and standing trans fixed to the truck, in some cases until struck by the engines. Engineer Dcit- weilcr is out with a tale ol an immense mountain lion that stood looking into the beam until aim st struck by the pilot. Engineer Baith's experiences in this line include running down a wildcat, which had been liiht-hvnnotized. lie se cured the skin, and exhibits it as prool ot his story of hunting lor wild game witn an engine. On September 9 next people will date theit letters not nil people, but a large number!) 0 00. How long will it be be fore, a similar collocation of numbers occurs, and how often will it occur in the twentieth centurv?

In a recent shipment of money for the troops was $1,000,000 in paper money of smull denominations. Preparations were being made to send more paper in the next shipment when a warning was given that hcreulter nothing but gold and silver coin must be sent to the islands. It was stated that nuts got into the boxes and attacked the packages ol bills, which were saved from destruc tion only by the greatest care. As far as officials at Washington know, none ol the money was actually ue stroyed, the damage done being proba bly no more serious than the eating away of the edges of notes or perhaps making holes through some of them.
