Richard Burgdorf, a yotinsr uerman art
ist, whose, nickname is "Prince- Churdo,"
und Iiis friend, Flurio. a literary student.
In tho coursw of their "Waud-ijalir"
through Germany, havu reached the end
of their resources, and tiiut themselves,
weary, footsore ami hungry, ly tho wiy
bMu near a (icrninii town. Richard, in

verses, ho knovki at a promising loukins
A benign nnil diminutive old woman
opened the dour und peered up furi
ously at him.
His romances nil took tllght. He fore
so much gentleness and simplicity hu
could invent -with ins.
Hlie bade him a friendly Rood day.
".My daughter is out, and the ehil
dren. They arc with my son In the
Vineyard. Did you want to see my
"No," said Florin, helplessly.
"My daughter, then'.'"
He shook his In ad.
She waited wondering.
"I'm tired." he stammered, deadly
ashamed of his ulterior olijeet. "Would
you let me tome in and rest nwhile'."'
"Certainly. 1 was eautioiied not to
li t trumps and beggars In." she added
smiling, "hut I'm sure you are none of
that sort."
He walked Into the clean, pool kitch
en, and sat down opposite a dresser,
upon which was a laixe brown loaf
and a pitcher of elder.
The littlu old lady, pleased to obtain
a listener, resumed her Knitting and
prattled yulleleslly of her son. her
son's wife, her grandchildren's recent
measles, the weuther, the vines, the
inognostications for the crops, last
year's crops, the fowls, the potatoes,
the hard times, and her native village
fifty years gone.
"Why don't I get lip and take It?"
Florin asked himself, desperately. "It
Is mere prejudice the miserable
shackles of conventionality. Somehow,
1 can't beg of this nice old woman,
l'.nt It Is evident I must, unless1 I
construct the sort of woman of whom
I can beg."
"Is there any sort of work I could
do for you?" he mumbled; "any hoeing
or digging or splitting or weeding or
watering or chopping'.'"
She glanced shrewdly at his faoe.and
at his clothes, which. If shabby, were
riot those of a laboring man, und an
swered placidly:
"My Itlaslus does all that and my
daughter with other help if needed,
but such work Is not for such ns you."
"lielng dead famished." he reflected,
"and worn out and penniless, I cannot

It. were well fed and rich, I could
smirk patronizingly: "Oh, do let me
try your barley lout!' And this we call
being hiimun. I'd rather be a dog and
bay at the moon."
Staring straight before him at the
dresser, he waited, strangely unable to
frame. In words his first venture In
mendicancy. If she had only not made
that fatally apt allusion to beggars an. I
trumps, he was certain he would not
hesitate. Involuntarily his Inward hol
lowness sought expression in a de
spairing groan.
She looked up startled.
"I have come far," he faltered, "and
eaten no dinner today. Could I have
a slice of that bread?" His voice was
shy and low, his heart heat fast and a
Hush overspread his face.
"Hless me, why didn't you say so be
fore?" She trotted about briskly, set the loaf
before him and some cheese.
"What would you like to drink?" Ci
der's not good on an empty stomach.
In a few minutes you shall have n cup
of hot coffee! Hless me, bless me! How
could I know, at this time of dav?
Of course ot Vesper-time I should
have offered It."
Florio had taken one heavenly
mouthful of black bread, when his
heart sank with the awful suspicion he
might be deceiving her unwittingly.
"I have no money," he bluntly an
nounced. "Sometimes that happens," returned
the little old woman, equably.

He said no more. He simply fell to.
He could have wtpt or shouted for
thankfulness. If this were begging, he
would make the most of it. His heart
grew light as the loaf diminished. A
sense of security and peace pervaded
Us being. He stretched his legs lazily
and sn iled at the little old woman, ns
she bustled herself about and served
his coffee, and fetched some beer, and
took evident delight In the dauntlss
tiess of his appetite. "Well, you are
hungry! " rhe exclaimed, admiringly.
"K.ither!" he agreed, continuing
doughtily. The more he ate the better
tasted the hot coffee. The more coffee
he drank, the greater his zest for thick
t- tC
slices of bread ntid cheese, and on this
sulMtartuin he finally poured down a
tall mug of beer.
At length he leaned bnck. wiping his
smiling mouth, and suddenly remem
bered t'haidu lying by the roadside.
With a niuilled, but robust Impreca
tion, he sprang up.
"See here, perhaps I am a tramp"
"No, no, you have not a tramp's face,
my pretty young gentleman. Nor do
you speak like a tramp."
"If having no money, no work, no
food to speak of In days, and not a mor
sel since yesterday morning. Is being
a tramp, I'm a tramp fast enough,
and I'll not deny It. Hut I'm nn hon
est man, and I shan't lie a tramp long,
I promise you. Now, see here. While
I've been gorging myself, beast that I
am, my chum's down there In the road,
ill and worn out and aching for food.
And I Just want you to give me a lot
of thlnjrs for him ns fast as ever you
can, some of that coffee, and bread,
"I'll boll him some eggs," she pro
posed, briskly.

as you live that I did my lirst begging

on, with a Hashing smile, and, shaking
bothe her hands, "ns your bounty, Alut

"I see you are a merry young gentle
man, and I love your Jest." Somewhat
hypnotized by his eagerness and nerve,
she committed extensive depredations
upon the family larder.
"We must all do one another good
turns in this world," she said simply,
as she handed him a well-filled basket,
"And If you don't m'nd my saying it
If I were you, I wouldn't call myself

with a smile of yellow sagacity, "some
folks never know how foolish they are."
"Oh, angel-granny, 1 thank thee for

down the hill. "It shnll be the corner
stone of Clinrdo's fortune."
"Nunc plaudite. There's coffee In

Richard whistled.

"An it please you. borrowed! Por

with a swarrt r, his chest well out, his
feet planted far apart, his face Hushed
and smiling.
Jtichard after a long pull at the com
forting bottle, gazed up with affection
ute, yet somewhat pathetic eyes, and
"You nra such a donkey!" and turned
his face quickly aside.
"It's all right, little one. Amuse
yourself now with that basket. Stay
where you tire and keep house. I'm off
for the third trip. They always go three
times, my prototypes, you know
Noah's weary dove and the other fel
lows." Leaving the main road, he struck off
at random, by narrow ways through the
vineyards, where men In blue blouses
were stooping in the strong sunshine
hard at work loosening the rocky soil
round the vine-roots.
"Most of them look as if they might
casually suspect what fools they are.
I must find one who us Oranny Aristo
tle said never knows. This old bump
kin may do."
Negligently leanlns on a Ftone wall,
he gazed at nothing In purthular and
began to whistle.
Heyonl a surly glance now and then
the vintner paid tio heed to the idle fel
low, but gradually, after the fashion of
even unsocial animals, became vaguely

"My master's."

"Prince Chardo," replied the sunny

"Don't know him," said the man
stolidly and resumed his task.
Now Frlorlo had had no notion in

would leap. He had but meant to win

to the rogue from this moment his

One year ago The Tribune compiled Its

a very encouraging sale. It made a vol

Important feature of the former Issue Is
retained, the whole being corrected and
brought up to date, and In addition a val
liable mass of the new statistical and gen
eral information is added, together with
an exhaustive review of the local und na
tional political activities of this presi
dential year. The Annual for ls7 wMll
probably contain over 2UU pages possibly

the contents will be:

assure the reading public of Northeastern
Pennsylvania that The Tribune Political

It is generally believed that when the
atmosphere of a room is impure the fact
will be sulllciently noticeable to a per
son of normal sensitiveness without
the aid of an instrument to inform him
of tho tact. That this is not so, how
ever, is evident to any one who re
members how the suffocating odors
of an overcrowded meeting room im
press their disagreeable presence on a
person coming in from the pure air out
side, while, to all appearances, the
persons in the room are quite unaware
of the air being bad
To remedy this state of things and
show just how bad or otherwise the
atmosphere of a room Is a Swiss In
ventor has just completed an Instru
ment which shows the exact condition
of the air. It consists of an airtight
glass receptacle, in which is placed a
red fluid. A bent glass tube is inserted
into this tliiid, and upon this tube the
lluid runs, to drop at the rate of one
drop in two minutes onto a cord that
is stretched by a weight. This lluid
lossesses the property of changing
color when submitcd to the action of
carbonic ucld gas. The more of this
gas there is in the air the more pro
nounced the change in the color of the
With this fact In mind, the principle
on which the Indicator works Is easily
understood. The drops of fluid, as they
fall on the string, change It according
to the condition of the atmosphere.
Should the atmosphere be perfectly
pure, the stringremalns red all the way
down. Should it be slightly tainted,
the top of the string appears white.
The fouler the air the longer the white
mark on the string. Uy the side of the
suing runs nn indicator, fraded to show
the exact condition of the air. The
highest point on the scale marks
"pure," the next "passably pure," the

"very bnd" nnd "extremely bad."
