What of the day a peace? When the dripp'ag sword tarns the green sward And the dull, dread noises cease The clarion call of bugles. The shriek of the angry shell What of battle that shall Tierce the night Of battle-is it well? What of the dead, my brother? What of the dead and dumb? Who shall pay at the Judgment day When the ir essenger shall come, Come In the light and glory, Come in the Ure and flame, Whose the strain of the blood and nain - My brother-whose the blame? What of the grief, my brother, What of the grief and woe? ? What of the toare shed o'er those biers Ibera stricken hearts brought low? Low in the day of terror. Low in the night of gloom, Whose the weight of this curse of Hate? Whose the pain of Doom? What of the blood, my brother? What of the blood that flows In a crimson stream where the lances gleam And the bugle blows and olows? Whoue the souls that shudder, Shudder and start and c ry. When the battles' cost by God engrossed In blood on the brazen sky? Hasten the day, my brother, Hasten the day of peaoe, When men not slain for ?reod of gain And the dull, dread noises cease! When sholl shall nh rick no longer, When Hatred slink away, The breath of God the blood-stained sod Hake cleon-and Peace shall stay! -Bismarck Tribune. I Xii o 1 i Indiana Ferguson impatiently awaited the evening. For a week she had been visiting her cousin, Silas Beck, and his wife, and this evening Bobert Scruggs was to come. Had she known that Mr. Scruggs was ex pected she would not have dared to visit her cousin just at this time. She was here, however, and now that he was coming she did not deceive her self by saying that she was sorry. Miss Ferguson felt thnt she had been unkind to Mr. Scruggs. He had offered her his heart, and he was a sincere man. She had answered coldly: "Mr. Scruggs, it is impos sible." How heartless it seemed to her now. Brrt there hr.d been Prof. Edward Cantwell Beed, and it seemed different then. Miss Ferguson was a mathonfa tician. Not that she ever did much in a practical way, but she loved the science for its own sake. She and Professor Beed had sat by the hour discussing problems in which they were interested. But for these meet ings her answer to Bobert Sornggs would have been different. She now sat in meditation before the bright fire. How stupid she had been, she thought, to. suppose that she could enjoy sitting forever drill ing away at her mathematics! Do people ever marry for that? What had Professor Beed done? Married that veritable chatterbox and mischief lov ing Tomboy, Sadie Moore. As for herself, did she ever really love Pro fessor Beed? Well, perhaps. Any how, she was very stupid-she was sure she was stupid. And now-certainly fate had thrown her in the way of the man whom she ' rejected. He believed in woman's in rr tuition, and that intuition told her T that this was fortuitous. She was al most happy. When at last she heard Mr. Scruggs stamping the wet snow off his boots outside the door she felt that she turned a little pale. She was certain ly nervous-an unusual thing for her. When he addressed her as "Miss Ferguson" it sounded odd and cold. He used to call her "India." "So you're acquainted!" exclaimed Hrs. Beck, as they sat about the fire, her face radiant with amiability. "Now, I'm afraid we'll have to watch you two. But then, if you'd a-been marrying people-too snch people as yon-you'd a-been married, both of you, long ago." .*You may trust Miss Ferguson," answered Mr. Scruggs. "I'm an audacious scoundrel, you know, but you will find Miss Ferguson as rigid as-as the North pole." Miss Ferguson could not have felt rn ore uncomfortable than she did now. To conceal her confusion she turned to arrange some grasses in a vase, which, as soon as she touched it, tumbled to the floor, breaking into a dozen pieces. Stoopiug quickly to pick these np, now blushing very red, she awkwardly upset a large easel and its painting. Then she rose np very quickly and left the room, mortified to the verge of despair. : She wondered if she would ever dare to see Mr. Scruggs again. The following morning she had her breakfast sent to her, complaining of a headache, and did not venture down stairs until she heard Hr. Scruggs' footsteps going out of the little gate ' and down toward a cabin where one of his queer fancies took him at every opportunity to converse with an ignorant but self-important and garrulous woodman settler. Then she crept softly down and entered the parlor-and there sat Mr. Scruggs looking into the fire. With au effort Miss Ferguson con trolled herself. "Good morning, Mr. Scruggs," she said. "I thought I heard you going out this morning." "Not I, this day," he replied, "I am disposed to mope. I have sent Silas down to bring my woodman friend to see if he cannot eheer me up. Are you ill, Miss Ferguson? I imagine that you used to look stronger." "I am well now," she answered. "I have changed since you saw me Inst." "? believe you are more beautiful," he declared. "Don't flatter me," she protested. '% flatter!" he exclaimed. "When will you learn, Miss Ferguson, that I am incapable of the art? Yon have not changed so mnch, then, ofter all. " "Ton are cruel if you contradict me," she replied. "And were you never cruel?" he asked. "Perhaps," she answered. "But I repented." "Bepeniance means sorrow," he said. "Will yon be sorry for me now? I have the blnef." At this moment Silas Beck camel in, j ! followed by the woodman, and when Mr. Scrnggs tamed to introduce his fwond to Mus Ferguson she was gone* 0? the following day 5Ir. Scruggs put on his overcoat &&u left the hons a as soon as breakfast was over. What this meant to Miss Ferguson she would not acknowledge even to her self. It vasa lonely day-the loneliest that she ever passed. Mrs. Beck, to be sure, never ceased to chatter, but what woman's talk can fill the empti ness of a woman's lonely hearth When Miss Ferguson put on her arc hes to walk down to the village post ?n.ii ce Mrs. Beck spoke of Bobert Scruggs, and she sat down to listen. Directly Mrs. Beck's gossip diverted itself to a neighbor who claimed to have a cousiu who married a niece of General Grant, and Miss Ferguson rose to go. "There goes Bobert now," cried. Mrs. Beck, "with Ida Gates. If that girl don't talk him to death it won't be her fault. She's a tur'ble gab." Miss Ferguson looked out. The road ran near the house, and she saw that Mr. Scruggs looked perfectly happy. He was leaning back in the sleigh, and Miss Gates was driving, chewing gum and talking all at once. ? Miss Ferguson did not speak. She weat to the fire, removed her arctics, selected a book from the table and read. She read determindely. She told herself that she was going to read, and what Miss Ferguson willed to do she usually did. When she had been reading about half au hour Mr. Scruggs came hurriedly in. "I nm sorry," he said to Mrs.Beck, "but I have to return to the city. I have just now received a dispatch. Good-by, Mrs. Beck-and Miss Fer guson, I don't kuow when I shall soe see you again. . Gtod-by." "Good-by, Mr. Scroggs," she said naturally, extending her hand. He took it, pressed it mechanically, . and in another moment he was gone. Miss Ferguson sat down by the fire. She admitted to herself that she was disappointed. Mr. Scruggs no longer cared for her. He was happy with Miss Gates, who chewed gum. But then why should she care? She waa determined not to care. She made it a practice to take things philosophic ally, and there was little that ever dis turbed her. She liked Mr. Scruggs, but he was nothing to her. She had been foolish-stupid-and she would try to forget it. Picking up her book she resumed reading where she liad left off and spent the rest of the da; with the novel. Notwithstanding, that, night her pillow was wet with tears! They were foolish, she said, but they would not last, and she could put it from her easier after a little feminine ory. After that she was determined to have no regrets, and what Miss Ferguson willed to do she nearly always did. The next day she seemed as fresh' as she had been for a year. f-Tl Two days later she received a letter from the postoffice.- It read: "Dear Miss Ferguson:-I once asked you to marry me. What I said then I now repeat with twofold vehe mence. Does the change in you ex tend to your heart or is your .answer the same? "BOBEBT SCBUGGS.'? The answer she wrote read simply: "Dear Bobert:-I have changed. The answer is yes. INDIA F." AN EXTRAORDINARY CRIME. rho Victim Put Where Her Story of It Wa? Taken for Insane Talk. ' In the month of December last an elegantly dressed man presonted him self to the governor of the district in which the City of Mexico is situated, ind solicited the admittance of bin rant, a lady whose name he said was Mrs Aurelia Granados de Jaimes, into the insane asylum for women in Canoa street. He said that she had lost her nind and that, as there waa np one at home to look after her, he was afraid mat some accident might happen to lier. The governor issued the permit ind the lady was admitted into the hospital. The lady was not violently crazy, but she complained to the doctors of i pain in her head and she was con stantly saying that a man had driven i nail into her head. The attendants DI the asylum paid no attention to this statement, as it waB thought to be a part of her ravings. The lady gradually got worse and ra a recent Sunday she died. Dr. Alberto Lopez Hermosa, director >f the asylum, and Dr. Francisco de P. Echeverr?a, assistaut director, be ieving that the lady's case had been a peculiar one, examined her cranium ifter death and made a sort of prelim inary autopsy. To their astonishment :hoy found in the region of the right temple the head of a steel wire, nail, which proved to be aboui eight centi metres m length. The flesh had almost cicatrized over the nail's head ind the latter was hardly visible. The doctors immediately informed ;he governor and the judicial cuthori :ies. An investigation has been started }f which the immediate object is to Sud the mau who first brought the lady to tho governor. The lady apparently ?vas about 35 years of age. Where the Store Went. A fashionable * French physician ?ailed lately on one of his patients, Baroness de M., who was complain hg of headaohe and general pros tra ion. "I will tell you what is the natter with you, madam," he said promptly; it is that American stove iron have over there. These coal rarniug stoves are reservoirs of poi son, the deadliest things in the world. " "But that stove cost me $251" pro tested the baroness. "Never mind that; better lose any amount of money than your life. I will tell you what I'll do; I'll give you a guinea for it, rad find some way of getting rid of the pernicious object " The lady con sented, and the doctor removed the stove. A few days later the patient, who thought of changing her resi lience, went out to inspect a suite of rooms,Jand the first thing that met aer gaze was the stove. "Who HveB hiere?" sbo asked of the servant who tv as showing her over the rooms. "Mme. A., madame," said the ser rant respectfully-"Dr. B.'s mother in-law!"-Modern Society. Mixed Metaphor. A lecturer before a large audience &ian impressive moment exclaimed: "All along the untrodden paths of the future we can see the footprints of an unseen hand."-Tit-Bits. .. EARLY INDIAN ATHLETES. Their Favorite Grimes Were Bowling Bal), Kannlnc, Wrest linc;, Etc. The American Indians were great bow??r?. Alleys ''of greater length than any in rise today Vere built in the open fields. Balls hewn ont of stone were rolled by genuine Indian muscle. In fact there is scarcely a popular kind of game played in this country today but that its oounterpart can be found in the age of the red man. They were gamblers, too, oven to forfeiting- the clothes upon their backs, their wives dr their liberty. Strange to say the average school his tory-has abounded in a description of the Indian in nearly every point ex cept the details of the games he played. Belies of the Indian bowling alley are rare except in a few sections of the country, thus showing that the game was not a universal one, and of all the games which tho Iudian played bowling ia 'undoubtedly the most re mote. Tho Western' Keserve of Ohio was ono of the centres for the Indian "bowlers." In'several parts of Asht?:" bula county some of the other resi dents have, these relics preserved, which they have pickedup themselves in their early farming, usually in tho open field. The balls used, ins'tead of hoing large wooden'ones like those in use today, were made of light colored stone and range in size from an ordi nary league ball down to tho,common small top rubber ball The alleys were built of wood carved out to make o reasonably smooth surface. The game was more- to seo how far one could roll rather than acenraoy iu striking the ten pins at the opposite end of the alley. . " Tho alleys were built so long*that itris al 1 egod it was a hard matter to roll one of these stone balls so that it would reach the end. The Indians, too, kept a score and, like in all other games, they gambled. The Indiaus were inveterate ball players and excellent "rooters." Their game lusted usually from 9 o'clock in the morning till sundown. It was . participated in by from COO to 1000 young men, divided into two sides, and the gardes were witnessed by from 3000 to 5000 m eu, women and children, who formed an immense ring around the entire held. The enthusiastic In dian yells were not altogether unlike the notes of the modern ball park. There was scarcely an intermission of five minutes during the entire day. B The game, however, resembled our football rather than baseball. . When the ball was in the air there were kicks and struggles, maimed limbs and bruised bodies. A prescribed line divided the "rooters" of the two sides, and across this line the gambl ing took place. Old men were selected as umpires. Women on bath sides brought the crude household goods of the family to be staked on the game.. -Stakeholders gttardod the goods. The scene resembled two distinct camps, although there was- not necessarily more than one tribe engaged in the game. There was a feature of the Indian game which will be new to the ball players of the year 1900. Several medicine men among the Choctaws sat all night on the spot whore tho ball was to be started next day and smoked to the Great Spirit who was to witness the game. Tho night before there also occurred what was known as the "ball play dance." Prior to the game each Indian was provided with two instruments which resembled our tonnie rackets of today. The judges threw the ball iu the air and immediately hundreds of Indians started after it. One finally succeeded in catching it between the large ends of the two "tennis rackets" and threw it "home," or between two poles, the limit of one side or the other. This would count one point toward the game and the aide getting 100 points t?rst won. Often in the terrible struggle for the ball difficulties would arise between two slightly injured contestants and the game would stop until they settled the dispute. The women aleo played ball. When the men were tired they would announce a game between the women,and prizes would be awarded to their winning wives. Among the popular 'amusements dear to the lighter side of the Amer ican, a parallel for which has been found among the Indiaus, are the fol lowing: Bowling, ball playing, horse racing, foot racing, dancing, wrestling, checkers, dominoes, quoits, sham fights. Many things which some of us to day may believe are contemporaneous only with the age in which we live, by research may be found to have existed in the everyday, life of thc American Indian. Vapor baths were enjoyed by the Indian before the white man cam? to disturb his hunting ground. Lawton's Last Day Wllh His Wife. "I called on General and Mrs. Law ton," says our correspondent, "the last afternoon they were together. She was sitting near Iiis desk at the division headquarters, while ho was looking over the typewriter's copy of his orders fbr the expedition, which he had written with a pencil on a pad in his full, round hand. "I had brought him a photograph of himself which was taken last spring. Anything about the general interested Mrs. Lawton at once. She scrutinized the likeness carefully from many points of view, and concluded that it was very good. Since it was taken, however, the general had grown a full beard. " 'I shall hive to make another on that acconn*, I suggested. "But, as sne looked first at the pic1 ture and then at the general, she seemed dubious about this. " *I don't know as I am going to let him keep the beard,'she explained. Tt does very woll for the proseut, for he hnB so little chanco to shave wheu he is at the front.' " 'Would you go with him to a post hop in the states if ho wore it?' I asked her, jokingly. " 'Oh, I would go with him any where!' she replied earnestly."-Col lier's Weekly.

STRANGEST AMOKS THE I f ? fEOPM THE WORLD ARE ' ? g THE DRUSES OF SYRIA. ? o o OOOOOOOOOOOSDOOOOOOOOOOOOO Dr. Max Oppenheim, a distinguished European scientist and scholar, re Ben tl j completed one of the most re markable journeys ever undertaken in the East. He explored little known and out of the way parts of the Holy Land. He penetrated to Damasous, which is rarely visited, and "made careful observations of the life of the people now living in that anoient city. During his journey Dr. Oppenheim took a multitude of photographs show ing the daily lifo of the people.he vis ited. Those have now been devel oped and printed in the New. York Herald and they have exoited mr Sh interest among scientific men in Ger many who have learned of the results of Dr. Opponheim's journey. Dr. Oppenheim made his way with a private caravan from the Mediter ranean to the Persian Gulf. The lat-, tention of the world is fixed upon this wide domain, for hero lies the land which Germany, England and Russia are oompeting with one another to pos sess byihe building of railways. To gain any real information of the peo ple inhabiting this country a man must be not merely an observer, but o linguist as well. He should under stand Turkish, Arabio, Syriao end other Oriental tongues, and Dr. Op penheim was well fitted for his.task, after a residence in Egypt of several years. Landing at Beyrout he ga, the red?is I little caravan about himf and'worlcoa^ his way up through the Lebanon Mountains. He found a mixed mul titude inhabiting these mountains, so famous for their cedars in Bible times. The Syrians, he found, were Chris tians, but there wore any number of sects, Boman Catholic, Maronites, Jacobites, Greek Catholios and oth ers. He attributes much of the suf fering of these people to their divis ions and lack of intelligent leaders. The Jesuits and those coming from the American mission at Beyrout, says Dr. Oppenheim, seemed to exert the best and deepest influence upon the people. They are not prosperous, and as a result some ten thousand of the men emigrate every year. Among the women, Dr. Oppenheim says, he found many remarkable for their beauty. Some European influ ences, ospeoially Frenoh and German, are now being brought to bear for the development of agricultural interests and industrial arts, but with no great A GBoup tn? nnrjB WOMEN. success as yet. Along the slopes of the Lebanon Mountains many of the wealthy merchants from Beyrout have their summer residences. A hotel built on European models was opened here in 1897. . Thence the caravan went to Damas cus, the oldest city in the world, and which has been inhabited for thirty five hundred years. It is mentioned in the Tell Amarna letters found in Egypt, dating from 1500 B. C., and INNER COURT OF DA has been inhabited ever since, and no one knows for how long before that time. Here aro rnins thousands of years old.. But the houses and life to-day in Damascus are most interesting and novel to the traveler from the West, He at Manila Are Buried .?HE DEID: They exhibit a luxury and comfort little dreamed of in Western lands as exist ing in Damascus to-day. All sorts of persons, says Dr. Oppenheim, are to be encountered on the streets of this ancient town, from the Christian wom en in their white garments to the Mo hammedan inhabitants of the harem wrapped up to tho eyes. From Damascus Dr. Oppenheim set out with his caravan, consisting of ten persons besides his three camel drivers, two hostlers, two Syrian ser vants and an Armenian cook, a Bed ouin and a pupil of the medical school atBeyrout. He made his way through the wastes of the desert, .studying as he went th? Druses, whom he hadiound-raTihrr-Ijt7batron: district and scattered east of the Jordan Biver. . The3e, he thinks, form probably the strangest nation in the world. The women are beautiful, the men are brave and intelligent. Their religion DRUSES AT DINKER. is very curious, being compounded of Mohammedanism mixed with some elements of Christianity. It is hard for any one to say preoisoly what the Druses do believe, but their life is a peculiarly simple and righteous one, 'Justice is done at any cost, and a high sense of honor is well developed. Like other Orientals, the Druses sit cross legged on the ground and help themselves at meals from large dishes placed in the centro of the group. They seem to bo industrious and satis fied, although the dreams of former glories sometimos rouse thom to strange flights of patriotio fervor. Lovers of Browning will be glad to learn something about that strange people utilized by bim for one of his most dramatic poems. The Germane assert, and have fig ures to prove, that the efforts of their railroad to Angora and the district south of it, Koniwyah, have stimulated the people to renewed effects for the acquirement of agricultural wealth. Dr. Oppenheim's trip shows that there is room for similar work all through Syria, and he has great hopes of the time when this country will be trav ersed by railways running from the Mediterranean Sea to the Persian Gulf. There is no doubt that the distriot east of the Jordon Biver is well adapted to tho raising of wheat, and it is only because of the laok of facil ities for transportation that this dis MASCUS DWELLING. trict has not already contributed a largo proportion of this cereal to the markets of the Orient. Dogs in Hamburg, Germany, are taxed according to size-the bigger the dog, the higher the tax. Driving the Carabao. TS ' "" The American Boldier is equal to all sorts of transportation problems; bat the strangest one he haa yet had to meet is presented by the ordinary beast of draught in the Philippine Islands, the water-buffalo. This ani mal is called the carabao in the Philippines, and the name (pro nounced carribow) is retained by our soldiers; but the Philippine oarrabao does not differ greatly from the com mon buffalo of India, China and other Oriental countries. P?. H. Little, a correspondent of the Chicago Tribune, says that tho carabao is slower than a camel and DRIVING THE CARABAO. more obstinate than a mule, and has a hide "like the armor of a battleship." He "has but one hope, but one am bition in life, and that is to lie down in a puddle of water with just his nose and horns stioking out." In doing this he will, if he oan, also give a bath to all tho supplies loaded on the bull-cart which he is drawing. Consequently a wild commotion rules along the wagon-train when it approaches a stream which has to bo iorded. ' - The soldiers, who are walk ing behind the carts as guards, lay aside their rifles, and begin to belabor each animal and objurgate him in three iangnages-English, Spanish and Tagalog. The Chinese drivers jump off the carts and also pound the puor carabao, yelling in Chinese. As tho middle of the stream is reached tho excitement grows. The carabao begins to stretch his neck, and bend his knees, and grunt-sure signs that he intends to lie down. "Hi there!" yell the soldiers. "Chop-chop! Pronto! Git out of that! Seega, blame you, seego, pronto, hi there!" Possibly all this may get the cara bao over the stream without his lying down, but this is unusual good for tune. To keep him in good trim, the rirabao must have a bath every fr houri. O' tsn the desire to bathe will come upo~ him in the middle of the night, and he will break his rope and start out across country in search of water. President Kruger. For two minutes 1 stood there look ing at the man whom the historians of the world may some day class as among the few men whose names sig nify decades of history that have changed the political trend of the world. Although that may not be true, he was thc man whose name was attracting more attention through out the world at the time than that of any other individual. He was sitting in a big chair ut the corner of the tablo. I could only see his baok and profile; his massive shoulders were stooped, and his head was bent for ward on his breast. He was wearing a pair of blue goggles with close fitting screens to protect his eyes from dust. His iron-gray hair was combed directly back from his fore head over his head to his collar. Onoe seen his faco could never be for gotten. I have never seen any other like it in pictures or among living men. The facA ia a prototype of Oom Paul Kruger's character. From what I saw, and from what I heard from men who have known him nearly all his life, there is no counterpart of his character in the world.-E. E. Easton, in Harper's Magazine. An Impressive New Hampshire Valley. The Notch is known sometimes as the Crawford Notch, to distinguish it from others in the vivinity. It is a beautiful and impressive valley be tween Willey Mountain and Mount Webster, in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. It contains the famous Willey House, and presents a splendid picture, viewed from the surrounding mountains and hills. Speaking of the view from the top of Mount Willard, Bayard Taylor said: "As a simple mountain pass, seen from above, it cannot be surpassed in Switzerland. Something like it I have seen in the Taurus, otherwise I can recall no view with whioh to oom* pare it." Pneumatic Corlee Pot.
