"In the examination of American Horse he was asked what he knew about religion. There stood heat by small white table Which the Witness drew near him. He placed his finger on tho Center of the table and drew circle about it saying, 'This ts what the red mah knows ?bout religion then he drew a larger circle saying that the White man knew that much more. Moving his finger around the outside of the larger circle he said: 'Be yond this the-red man knows as much about the coming of a Messiah as the white man.* *' Judge Shiran says the Indian makes a good juror, in which capacity he may sit after relinquishing tribal relations and complyhig with government sev eralty laws.

"It is astonishing to see the rhethods used by an intelligent red man to get away with his money. Among other things he has a weakness for a certain kind of amusement known as the .Merry go Round.* Recently one of these concerns got permission to set up one of their machines on a reserva tion within my circuit.

COSQUEft?D. j Alice Ellinghain was indubitably a pretty girl. Not pretty with the un meaning prettiness of glossy curls, sea blue eyes and straight, Greek features, but with the beauty of soul and mind, and rich womanly temperament-and at 17 Alice had pronged her self In tneiTinge to ?Scar Warrie. "My ?ear. .you blight have done bet tet-, 1 thihk," su'hi Mrs: Ellingham; ? portly matron; Wild liiUl herself been a beauty ih her day, un'd w;as-, in every meaning bf tue word, ? woniau bf the wur?u\ .'How, mamma ?" said Alice, simply. "For you know I love him." "Love," said Mrs. Ellingham, half scornfully. "That's a word that will do very well for poets and romane- s. I don't believe in it myself. I dbi marry for love!" "No, mamma," said Alice, miscble ously, "you married for money; nHl when poor papa speculated in those horrid Western lands you l?st it ail-, and Were compelled to drag dut the rest o? ?o?r married life without either iOVe or money tb t-bhsole yott. 1 have heard yob tell the story many A time." Mrs. Eilihghani blt her hp and fanned herself violently. "That was because Mr. Ellingham was too much of a fanatic to take my advice about the Investments," she said, tartly. "But it has nothing to do with the matter at present under dis cussion. You have engaged yourself to Oscar Wayne, who calls himself an artist An artist, indeed-lie had better say a genteel beggar. For What" are nrtiBtB nowadays but starvelings? And he has gone out to the Territories to Sketch scenery for pictures that no obe Will bby after they are painted and here* in his absence, comes Mr. Fenwick Fontaine, the richest catch of the season, alu! lays his hand and his heart at yo?r feet. Why. Alice, you are the luckiest girt I ever saw.'* "Of course his hand and his heart can be nothing to me," said Alice, look ing dbWn dt the iilftin gold engagement ting that shone on the forefinger of her left hand. "For I love Oscar." Mrs. Elliugham lay back among her cushions with a deep and ostentatious sigh. "Alas, Alice!" she uttered, plain tively, "I did not suppose you could be so selfish." "Selfish, mamma!" "Don't you see that you are blight ing my future as well as your own? Don't you know that I have always looked forward to my daughter's mar riage as a means of establishing myself In the ease and luxury which are almost a necessity to my declining years?" "Dear mamma," pleaded Alice, with a troubled light in her sapphire-blue eyes and color coining and going faintly on her cheek, "that is easily settled. Your home must be with Oscar and me." Mrs. Ellingham loftily shook ber bead. "On a crust a day and a third floor in some wretched tenement-house," enunciated she. "Never!" "Yes, but mamma-" Mrs. Ellingham lifted her smooth, white hand as if to ward off Alice's words. "My dear, we will not discuss the subject, if you please. I am quite willing to allow you time to reflect up on this momentous question. I have told Mr. Fontaine that you will give him an answer at thc end of the week. Until then pray allow my tired brain and overworked nerves to rest." And Alice went away to her own room, secretly avowing constancy to her absent lover. "Deni- Oscar," she murmured, softly kissing the engagement ring which his hand had placed upon her finger; "as if I could ever be untrue to you. Not all the gold in the world could tempt me." But when the evening mail came in and brought no letter from Oscar. Alice did feel a little lonely and be wildered. "It will surely come to-morrow," she said to herself. But the morrow arrived, and brought no letter. "It's very strange," said Alice, with tears in her eyes. "He never failed before." "No more than I expected, my dear," said Mrs. Ellingham. "I shouldn't be at all surprised if he had fallen in love with some young woman out there and settled down "for life. I'm told art is better appreciated in the west than it is here." Alice bit her Up- but she did not speak. Such bitter words were bet ter left unanswered. Mr. Fontaine came at about noon to take the ladies out driving. Alice's first impulse was to decline, but she remembered that her mother was fond of carriage exercise, and had veny few opportunities to indulge that liking-and she said "Yes." TH drive out to Fontaine Abbey," said the rich and confidant suitor. "My gardener sends in word that the white grapes are ripe, and there are some very fine tropical flowers in blossom in the conservatory. And I thought Mrs. Ellingham might per haps honor me by by partaking of a little lunch nf tor the drive." Fontaine Abbey was a fine old place, built in the style of a stately medieval castle, with grounds that sloped to a serene, silver river, acres of conserva tories, ? picture gallery and a noble entrance ball, where knights in armor kept mailed guard. The carpets were Persian-the tables of Florentine mosaic-the lunch table a marvel of Serres china, gold plate and import ed luxuries. Mr. Fontaine played the accom plished host to perfection-and Mis. Ellinghnm's eyes sparkled at .the effect which all this luxury and re finement were evIdcnU.v producing upon the susceptible nature of her daughter. "Oh,!" she sighed, scarcely audible, when Mr. Fontaine had left them for a moment, "what UIIBB \\ would he to end ty. dajrs iii H biabe ilke Fontaine Abbr)!" , *.. .Alice saki nothing, bnt there was a far-off, absent look In her eyes, a strained, set compression to her lips. "Well, why not?" she asked herself. "Since Oscar has forgotten mc-why not'f The week rolled to Its close, still without any token or sign that her far-off lover remembered her very ex istence-and when Fenwick Fontaine proposed formally to her) Alice Ellinga baw ah?Weted "Yefi:i5 nM& thirling! my' owri ndbie-rintjirfed 'child/' saul ??lingbarn. folding Alice close to lier iie^rt; any1 ne.ver noticing how pale hud cold her lips were, how listless the droop of her head., . ; "t have sacrificei} myself!" iiic? kept repeating .to herself, "but how shali i ever endure the life that lies before me?" For three days she lived through the new existence-a pale, passive statue-at their close she took off the great diamond solitaire, clear and limpid as a monster drop of dew, that her new financ?e had placed on her finger and gave it back to him. "I cannot marry you!" ?he said, "I cannot belie Illy DWI! nature; i wcttld rather lite ih a garret: and die ?n old maid than marry you whiie my lieart is ali another's." , So tile brilliant engagement; which had already become the' talk, br the' towri, was broken off, arid Mrs. Ell ingharii, deeply offended, vowed that Alice might turn seamstress, school teacher or salesgirl, for all of her. "I wash my hands of you. ungiate ful, undutiful girl!" she cried, through torrents of angry tears. "Mamma. I love Oscar," was all that Alice would answer. She was sitting alone In the twilight hat evening, trying a little by Whiles; it yet hnpili?r. f?r, thaii when She .s tilt? bethrothed bride df the . lionaire. when a footstep sounded on the threshold, and, turning, she beheld-Oscar Wiiyh?i "Oscar!" she cried out, hysterically; "Oh, Oscar, my darling, I thought you had forgotten me!" "I meant to give you a surprise, Alice," he said, gayly. "For I have come home for good. Listen, dearest, it's like a fairy tale. I have made no sketches at all.

And then Alice told him all-how nearly she had yielded to the terrible temptation of Mammon and the world-how she had been true to her self and him at the last. The next week, when financial cir cles were ringing with the failure and decampment of Fenwick Fontaine, the millionaire, Mrs. Ellinghain was. forced to confess that Alice's simple heart wisdom was superior to her own worldly policy. She was quite' satisfied-she had a rich- son-in-law, after all. And that was what she wanted.-New York News. PEARLS OF THOUCHT. The empty barrel soon falls to pieces.. Little men can never do great things. The foibles of fashion are the fool's opinions. Dreams of bigness are not visions of greatness. The counterfeit is often better look ing than the genuine. There is a great difference between a scholar and a thinker. Riches on' the heart are a burden; under the feet, a blessing. Worn and bittered gold is better than newly-polished brass. The man who really cares to, will always dare to do the right. The oily safe way to climb life's ladder is to keep looking up. The man who is never weary In well-doing docs nothing well. Much of the music of life depends or, your touch and your time. New truths will always break the bottles that held old thoughts. Locality is not so potent as love in making a health-giving climate. Prosperity tests character as a heavy harvest tests the granary. In the measure in which you say "I am not my own," all things become yours. The world always looks upside down to tile man who is upside down himself. A man's profession is like a founda tion; it is uot a house, but it gives ycu a good idea of what it will be. The greatest mistake In life is seeking to improve the circumstances without regard to the character.-Ram's Horn. Getting Fomenting Tor Xotliinjj. "The desire to get something for nothing is a disease with some men," said a salesman in a down-town hard ware store the other day, glancing after a prosperous-looking man who was leaving the store with a look of satis faction on his face. "We have razors honed or ground 'to accommodate our commuter cus tomers." continued the salesman, "and the charge of 25 cents barely covers the cost, as we do not do the work ourselves. That man who just left the store is making all kinds of money, and yet he contrives to make us hone two or three razors every few months for one small quarter. "Two or three days after we have honed one of his razors he comes In with much bluster and says that .he can't shnve with it at all, and hands a razor that is certainly dull. We know by our record that it is not the same razor that we honed a few days before, a private mark scratched on the handle showing that it had not been in our store for some months. However, we have to have the razor fixed up for him for nothing in order to keep his trade lu hardware and to prevent him running us down to his fellow-customers. "We have sharpened two razors for him in a week, and he has just brought a third, pretending it is the same one that he brought in first and that the edge is not sharp enough. I admit it is uot as keen as his greed for the quarters."-New York Times. Numery Paya u Town's Expcnaei.

American Machinists Who Go to China Gen erally Get the Worst of IL A great many skilled machinists and engineers have gone to China from this country during the past ten yeaFS," said the captain of a large car go steamer, who has made frequent trips to the flowery kingdom. "Most of them were engaged to take charge of big plants, and while the job seem ed tip-top on the surface the result was nearly always disappointing. The Chinese are very anxious to avail themselves of foreign skill but take care to dispense with it at the earliest possime moment. A manufacturer, for example, will put in modern machin ery and hire an American expert as a superintendent, giving him a couple of sleepy looking young Chinamen as assistants. In six months the sleepy looking pair have mastered all the technicalities of the plant and some pretext ls found for getting rid of the American. The fact that he has a Ave or ten year contract ls no special obstacle. All labor contracts may be voided for good cause, and in China there is nev er any difficulty In proving anything you like about a man. I knew an Ohio engineer who went to Canton several years ago to set up and operate a large plant in a silk mill. He was under a five-year contract at $(5,000, gold, per annum, and thought he had a soft thing. Before his first year had elapsed he was discharged on the ground of habitual drunkenness, neg lect of duty, waste of material. Insub ordination and a dozen or so other lit tle things I have forgotten. Being en tirely Innocent, he showed fight, but was overwhelmed by a cloud of wit nesses and the case against him was made so strong that the consul refused to interfere. His place was taken by his native assistant, who made a botch of it and destroyed thousnnds of dol lars' worth of costly machinery, but that didn't help the engineer who was sacked. American experts who know the ropes insist upon having a clause In their contracts authorizing them to employ their own assistants. It has been the same way with even the mil itary instructors. The soldiers of for tune who went there expecting life time jobs were crowded out as soon as young native officers learned enough to take charge of the troops them felves."-New Orleans Times-Demo crat.

Last week was a hard one for the old men of the Kiowa, Comanche and Apache tribes of Indians, says the Wieb1 fa (Kan.) correspondent of the Chicago Hecord. They had to give up all of their wives but one. Some of the medicine chiefs had as many as teri women whom they called wives. All but the favorite one are now living away from the old buck's tepee. When the law wa3 passed throwing open to settlement the Kiowa,- Coman che and Apache reservation, it was de cided that these Indians should be more civilized. It was with this end In view thnt the Indian agent an nounced to all the melt that they must give up their numerous wives, or they would receive no part of the land to be alloted, nor would they receive their share of the money shortly to be paid them. It was a h?fd blow to the tribes, ?s they have always practiced polygamy without arty interference. In reply to n letter1 from Agent A?is chare, the Indians gathered at Darling ton on the first of the week. The old men had all of their wives with them. The agent made a speech to them in which he set forth the fact already stated. Thc medicine men made re plies. Rolling Pony, who had ten beautiful young squaws and one old one, was the principal talker against the giving up of his wives. He said that they represented him as a wealthy man and if he had to give all of them up but one the Indians would think that he was a very poor man and he would lose his influence among his peo ple. He said that for his wives he had paid nearly 1,000 ponies and had been twenty years in gathering them around his tepee. He made no mention of lov ing any of them, but said they were good workers and tended his crops In good shape. The agent asked him if he loved them and which one he liked best. He made no reply, saying be did not understand the question. Then the agent told him he must make his choice then and there. The squaws were all lined up before the old man and he looked at them long and earn estly. Finally he selected the oldest one, she being shown in the photograph with him. Holling Pony has been an Indian police for the last ten years, but he told the agent he was going to quit now, as the government had not given him a fair deal. The discarded squaws will be taken charge of by the Indian agent and made to work for their living. Narjo, a Kiowa warrior, had five wives, but he gave up all but one. Gawkey, a Comanche policeman, had eight wives and he kept the oldest one. About sixty old men had to give up their many wives and they Invariably took the one they had bought first, casting the youngest and prettiest aside. The squaws who were thus de serted did not seem to mind it, but were glad to be released from the bard work in their husband's harem. The old men were very much against giving up the many squaws, first because tho^v represented nia?y ponies and, second, they were a mark of Influence in In dian society. The more squaws a med icine man possessed the more popular he was. It ls among this class of peo ple that the white people who want tc take free homes in the new country to be given away soon will have to live, They are peaceable Indians now, but they cling to their old customs with a nea rbi Ike tenacity.
