CICELY RE1LLY
Tlieye was scarcely room for two on th(
stile.
So we didn't sit far apart:
I'm sure, while 1 stammered my love, eh<
could hear
The fluttering beats of my heart!
The stars peeped out; the cool breeze came
And rocuishlv kissed the rye.
But still we sat on that oid oak stile,
Mv own little lassie and I.
Cicely. Cicelv, dear little Cicely,
Cicely Reilly and I.
Cicely's father has farms galore
And what would he say if he knew
That his daughter, the pride of his heart
and I
To each other had vowed to be true?
j I scarcely know, but I dread to think
Of our interview by and by,
For I reckon we both have tempers quick,
Cicely's father and I,
Anthony, Anthony, sour-faced Antiionv.
Anthony Reilly and I.
But who can resist my Cicely's voice.
And the glance of her eloquent eyes?
Not cicely's father. When Cicely pleads
He cannot resist if he tries.
And so I have hopes the paternal consent
And the blessing will come by and by,
If not we must marry without them, I
guess,
Sweet Cicely Reilly and I. .
We're both one mind on the matter, I find,

A CLOSE SHAVE, Bl)T
THE BLUFF WON OUT.
Ilfrnl Ifijfll LEAKING of a woman's
O _ right to search her nusband's
pockets reminds
me," said Henry Topping,
ljg]| o the Southwestern manager
or a big packing house, "Judge Sidener,
Df St. Louis, may be right theoretically,
but it's against the rules in my house
and my wife knows it and abides by
the unwritten law. I don't deny, mind
you, that what's mine is hers and
what's hers is mine, but I have established
and enforced a set of rules
which precludes the promiscuous arifl.
haphazard appropriation of moneys
that may, from time to time, lie uninvested
in my clothing.
"I never deny my wife anything in
reason, "and as she is a very reasonable
woman my generosity in this
regard has never been abused. One
night last winter I carried home about
530 intended for the payment of household
expenses coming due Saturday.
It was Friday, and I drew the money
then because I always make it a point
not to get into the Saturday rush at
banks. She didn't need any of it till
Saturday night, and I didn't hand it to
her for the good and sufficient reason
that I expected to go to the Saturday
ball game and spend a few on my
own account. Saturday morning I got
downtown in a hurry, but when I
walked up the street toward my office
the bookkeeper was standing in the
doorway, all in a flutter. He told me
that he had just received a telegram
from our Chicago headquarters instructing
me to go at once to Topeba
to attach a shaky customer who was
said to be getting ready to make an
assignment.
"There was yet about ten minutes
left to catcb the train, and as the customer
in question owed my office considerably
more than $2000 it was eminently
important that 1 land on him
as quickly as possible."The bookkeeper
had the account all mr.de out and
handed it to me. I held my hand on
the pocket in which I supposed the $50
was safely stowed and ran all the way
to tiie depot, arriving just in ume xu

as it started away from the platform.
"I was sitting in the smoker, all out
of breath, when the conductor, evidently
a new man. as I had never seen him
before, came in and cried 'Tickets!' I
made a plunge for my pocketbook, and,
of course you've guessed, found it
nmpty. I searched every pocket and
repeated the performance backward
before the conductor got to me, but I
had only ten cents, my pocket knife
and a few worthless papers. Wifey
had beaten mc to the roll.
" 'Tickets, please!' said the conductor.
I looked at him a moment and
saw that he was indeed 'new.' full of
zeal and technical asperi.y of his authority.
and expecting trouble. I asked
him to sit down and began to explain.
Rut hp looked annoved. and paid he'd
be 'back in a minute.' When lie came
back be wouldn't sit down, but remained
standing, his cold, gray .eye
fixed upon me as I tried to grow eloquent.
1 explained the suddenness of
my summons and tbe importance of
my business at Topeka, but it didn't
evoke the slightest flash of interest.
" 'Can't help that.* he said at last.
'That's your business. My business is
to collect $6.34 unless you have a pass
or a ticket"
"I began to cail him 'old man' then,
and expatiated upon the vast volume
of business which my firm g:uve annually
to his road. I said that I would
'make it all right witli him,' besides
paying the full fare 'on the next trip,'
but he didn't enthuse over the prospect
a bit.
" 'That may all be so,' he said, with
slow and sad precision, 'out instructions
are instructions. I'm not allowed
to let anybody ride free, and you must
pay or get off tbe train."
"I knew by the calm, stern way ho
said it that it was up to me. so I pleaded
with him to give me time to look
through the train. Surely I would find
somebody who knew me and who
would advance me a small loan. All
right. He would agree to that. 1

Growing desperate as the train flew
onward, I accosted a simple but prosperous
looking old gentleman in one of
the sleepers, and, taking him aside,
explained my predicament. But he
only glared at me over his glasses and
growled: 'Sir! How dare you?' Then
he rang for the porter, and I heard the
whispered caution: 'You want to watch
that fellow. He's up to some rascality.'
As I retreated toward the smoker
I I was aware that the conductor, th?brakeman,
the porters and even the
news agent were watching me with
furtive and wholly uncomplimentary
glances. I telegraphed to every agent
along the route, to my bookkeeper and
to the friends I had ahead at Topeka.
Then I stood on the platform in the
hope that 1 might see a familiar face
at the stations where we hesitated or
'took water. But the few who board

I reflected with bitter realization that
it was too early in the morning for
my influential friends to respond effectively
to my wild telegraphic appeals
for help. When we got to Valley

larly watchful of me, and as wc were
pulling out of that place he came along.'
side of my uneasy seat and began:
'You claim to be well acquainted along
this road, don't you?' I said yes, with
I a glad note of hope in my voice, but he
floored me with, 'Well, I think you're
putting up a job on me. That's what
I think.' I tried to look indignant, but
he resumed: 'If you're so well known,
it's funny you don't know the Sheriff
of your own county.'
"Sheriff McCook?'I said.
"'Yes, Sheriff McCook.' he sneered;
'you run right into him back there at
Valley Centre and he never took off
his hat and saluted you. You never
showed any signs of knowing him. and
I've about made up my mind to throw
you off at the next water tank.'
I " 'How did you know it was Sheriff
ilWcCook?' I asked, forgetting my pride
1 and certain that I would have known
McCook among a thousand.
I "'I took up his ticket, didn't I?'
grinned the conductor, 'leastwise I seen
his pass '
" 'Pass!' the idea struck me like a
flash of light at night.
"Where is he? Where's McCook?' I
snapped, and the conductor had no
sooner pointed out the stranger than I
was beside him. The interested conductor
watch me with amused but malicious
interest.
' 'I understand yorrre Sheriff Mc*
Cook, of Greer County,' I said to the
stranger. And, as he nodded assent,
I went on with my tale. I wanted the
loan of $10. I was the southwestern
manager for the.big T. and T. .Company.

only laughed at me, said he had heard
that 'racket' before, intimated that he
was 'no jay.' The insolent manner of
the man as well as our quick approach
to the 'jumping-ofii place' must hare
nerved me to say:
" 'See here, stranger! I do need
that money and I tried to borrow it on
the word of a business man. I've got
to have it. I happen to know that
you're traveling to Chicago on Sheriff
McOook's annual pass, and you're not
MeCook. He's a friend of mine; but,
so help me Jehosaphat, if you don't dig
up a $30 bill I'll expose you and have
that pass taken up. It'll cost you a
fare to Chicago and it'll cost MeCook

"I went no further with my threat.
It wasn't necessary. The 6trauger
weakened the minute I mentioned the
pass and reached down into his pocket
for a $20 gold piece, which he forced
me to 'borrow.' I got it just as we
ran into Arkansas City, and it took
that conductor all the rest of the trip
to explain to me his motives, his risks,
his newness and a dozen other excuses
for refusing to let me ride 'on my
face.'
"And it was a close shave, wasn't
it?" resumed the manager; "but il

liO, the Klch Indian.
According to Mr. Sweet, in the World
To-day, the richest people in the world
are the, Osage Indians of Oklahoma.
Every member 'of the tribe has a balance
of $4GM deposited in the safest
place on earth, in the vaults of Uncle
Sam's big bank at Washington, drawing
five per cent, interest. In addition
to this they have each S57 acres of
land, about one-fifth of which is in a
good state of cultivation, and is worth
SSf) an acre. Of the total
remainder, SSU.OOO acres are leased for
pasturage, mostly to Texas cattlemen,
at an average rental that gives to the
land a value of ?,"> an acre to the Indian.
But averaging up the whole at
the low valuation of $8 an acre, and
this does not take into consideration
the oil, natural gas and coal to be
found throughout that region, uor the
leap in values that must follow the
several lines of railway now being constructed
through the reservation, the
land holdings of each Osage are easily
worth $GS5G. That is to say. a very
conservative estimate of the wealth of
these people must place it at net lese
than $11,500 for every man, woman
and child of the tribe.

ruling thought in the minds of reporters
the choice of a point of healthful and ad>

are closed and cold weather resorts have
not yet opened. To the family the problem
is a particularly weighty one for the school?

year, ifrtd it is time the little'peoplo took
up the business of childhood. And in making
choice, there are to be considered as
factors healthfulness, accessibility-to business

and social surroundings.
