Mors Frenzied Finance.?A young man, whose assurance is chronicled in the Boston Traveler, called on the pastor of an Everett Catholic church. He wished to get married, but told the priest he didn't have the price. After learning the young man was working steadily, the father advised him to take to himself a wife, telling him that if he kept his nose to the grindstone he would get along without trouble. Finally the fellow agreed with the priest and arranged to be wedded on a day three weeks later. The night before the ceremony he once more visited the priest After some preliminary' conversation he finally blurted out: "Father, if?if It isn't asking too much, could you lend me $10 so that I can make a bluff at paying you a good fee? I don't want to look cheap before the girl. I'll give it back to you after you marry us." The priest consented and the next day he married his friend. After the ceremony he shook hands with the bride and groom and expectantly waited to have the man hand him back his $10. But It was not ronncoming. wuua. bow and a smile the newly wed took the arm of his bride and walked out, leaving the priest too astounded to do any more than gasp. The father's faith in human nature has scarce yet recovered from the shock nor has he since seen his debtor. His Half.?Mike and Pat by trade were hard-working brickmasons, but good attendants at church. The clergyman's Sunday sermon topic at which both attended, happened to be temperance. The next day, while out visiting other members of his parish, the clergyman spied Mike coming out of a saloon with a pail of beer. The clergyman in surprise, asked him if he had forgotten his Sunday sermon appeal on temperance. Mike said he remembered. but it was customary to get a pall of beer at lunch time. The clergyman talked to him awhile, and soon had the best of his good nature. He then said: "Mike, if you are a man, you will empty he contents of that pail in the gutter." He was Just about ready to comply with the good man's wishes when it struck him that half of the beer belonged to Pat. Turning to the minister, he said: "Pat is waiting for me, and paid for half of this beer, and my half is at the bottom."?Mack's National Monthly. A "8?rt of Cousin."?The lawyer eyed the woman in the witness box in patient despair. Then he rallied visibly. "You say, madam," he began, "that the defendant is a sort of relation of yours. Will you please explain what you mean by that?just how you are related to tne aerenaanir "Well, It's like this," replied the witness, beaming upon the court. "His first wife's cousin and my second cousin's first wife's aunt married brothers named Jones, and they * ~e cousins to my mother's aunt. The.*, again, his grandfather, on his mother's side, and my grandfather on my nr.- 'tier's side were second cousins and his stepmother married my husband's step-father, after his father and my mother died, and his brother Joe and my husband's brother Harry married twin sisters.

School teachers declare that children have no Intelligent comprehension of grammatical rules till they are at least 12 years old. The conversation of Hetty, who is 8, reported in the Lutheran, tends to confirm the statement. Hetty's uncle, who is a school teacher, met her on the street one beautiful May-day, and asked her if she was going out with the Maying party. "No, I ain't going." "Oh, my dear," said her uncle, "you must not say, 'I ain't going.' You must say, 'I am not going,"' and he proceeded to give her a little lesson in grammar: "You are not going. He is not going. We are not going. They are not going. Now can you say all that, Hetty?" "Of course, I cam," she replied, making a courtesy, "There ain't anybody going." Not Like Father.?An old Irishman who had mado a good deal of money, Kit# u?Ka woon'f vArv norti^nlor nhniit his habits or conduct, lived in Chicago. His custom was to go downtown about once a month on a spree, and then come back home and beat up his family and break the furniture. His aged wife, who had stood him for many years, was blind. Finally he died, and his children gave him a fine funeral. They had plenty of money now that the old man was dead, and so they spread themselves. The blind widow was dissolved in woe. She cried and cried all through the services, paying scant heed to what was going on until the eulogy was pronounced. She listened. The priest referred to the dead man in glowing terms. After about ten minutes of this the aged widow nudged her son and whispered: "Danny, do they be havin' two funerals here today ?" Not Hot Enough.?Mr. Justice McKenna of the United States supreme court, took up golf a time ago, and played at it at the Chevy Chase links near Washington. He was practicing one day, and there was nobody with him except his caddie. He teed up his ball, made all the preliminary waggles he could think of and swiped at the ball. He missed It a foot. He tried again, and this time struck the earth eighteen inches behind the tee. He made another effort and missed again. Then he stopped, looked at the ball and said, "Tut-tut! Tut-tut-tut!"

Gastonia Gazette, March 22: At the height of the high waters in the year 1886, twenty-six years ago, Mr. N. D. Glenn, who lives in the Bethel neighborhood just across the York county line, on Crowder"s creek, marked some trees along the course of this stream showing how high the water rose. Last Friday when the creek was at its highest he made marks again showing the point this year's flood reached. After the waters had subsided and he was [able to compare the two he found that last Friday this stream was six feet higher at the same point than it [ was twenty-six years ago. The people in that section do not hesitate to say that CrowdeFs creek was higher | last week than it has been within the memory of living men....-The many friends of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Moore, of Spencer Mountain, sympathize with them very deeply over the great bereavement which befell them this morning in the death of their little oneyear-old-daughter, Mary, which occurred at seven o'clock this morning aftei: a serious iilnedi of only one day with meningitis. The little one was slightly ill on Wednesday and a physician was summoned, but the nature of the trouble was not known until yesterday morning when the fatal illness developed.

Chester Reporter, March 22: Mrs. Victoria K. Mayfleld, wife of Mr. W. M. Mayfleld, died yesterday evening at eleven o'clock at her home in this city and will be buried tomorrow at eleven o'clock at New Hope church. Mrs. Mayfleld was in her sixty-eighth year and was a native of Chester county. In addition to her husband she leaves the following children: Mr. A. W. Mayfleld, of Texas, Mrs. M. L. Miller, of Statesville, N. C.; Mrs. E. B. Llpford, of the Baton Rouge section; Mrs. C. A. Shirley and Miss Gertrude Mayfleld, of Chester A team belonging to Messrs. M. R. Walsh & Sons ran off yesterday afternoon, when a wire across the wagon bed broke and allowed some lumber to be thrown against the horses. The team made their dash immediately in front of the postofflce, and the driver, Sadler Bailey, was thrown against the ground with some force. The horses wheeled in Valley street, and into Gadsden ,but Mr. H. C. Boney made a neat grab at the reins, and succeeded in stopping them. Mr. Boney's team was just ahead, and if he had not stopped the runaways it is probable that the Farthing Steam Laundry wagon would have been demolished. The negro boy, Sadler Bailey, was painfully hurt, but is able to be at work today A blaze that shot far up into the skies and lighted up the entire western horizon was the cause of much alarm yesterday evening about nine o'clock, many persons concluding at once that the Wiley mill was on Are. The blaze, however, was confined to an old cow barn near the mill, and while the building was entirely destroyed the loss will amount to only a few hundred dollars. A quantity of hay and about one hundred bushels of corn were in the building. and were included in the loss Mr. Clayton C. Carpenter, who holds the position of head clerk in the S. A.

Ambrose, were thrown out of their buggy early Tuesday even ing on York street, when a negro boy riding a horse dashed into their conveyance at full tilt. Dr. Wylie was painfully bruised and scratched about the face, but his little boy was r,ot hurt at all. The negro was thrown from his horse, but was uninjured. He made profuse apologies, and as he helped Dr. Wylie catch his horse and seemed to regret the affair, the latter will not prosecute. Doll Making In Germany. The old home of the doll is Thuringie, and especially the town of Sonneberg. twelve miles from Coburg. Most of the poorer families in and around Sonneberg are engaged in this industry, which is the chief source of revenue of the population, giving employment for the whole year. The work demands a great deal of practice and skill, as well as time and trouble. The inhabitants start making dolls while very young and by constant practice are finally able to work with astonishing accuracy and speed. In the doll industry only some special part of the dolls is made by each per son. Some make the bodies, others the heads and still others the arms, hands, etc. By this division the work is done much quicker and better. The heads are ,flrst moulded, and when sufficiently dry the eyes are cut out by a skilled worker with a very thin, sharp knife. This is extremely delicate work, because all of the sockets have to be of uniform size or the eyes do not fit. After being burned the heads are painted, waxed or glazed, depending on the material from *which the heads are made. The arms, legs and hands are produced in a similar but simpler manner, as the painting consists only In giving the necessary flesh color, while the heads must have rosy cheeks, red lips and dark or light eyebrows, depending on the color of the eyes and the making and attaching of the wigs involve I a number of other processes. The doll industry is now commencing to make the "character doll' in restricted numbers. The model is j. u,. n-tlot on/1 tho mn 1 rlq are lliuue %jy an at uob ?iiv? ??w ? then copied from this model. The painting of these dolls Is done with especial care, and, consequently, their price is considerably higher than that of the commoner type of doll. The assembling of the different parts of the dolls Is often very complicated. The best jointed dolls have stout elastic cord on the Inside, to which the movable parts are attached. A special branch of the Industry is devoted to the making of dresses and hats. The last Parisian styles are copied in dressing the larger sized dolls and the creations turned out compare very favorably, in miniature,with the original.?Consul-General Frank Dillingham, Coburg, in the Daily Consular Reports. HIGHEST DAM In the World Will Be Built in Idaho By the Government. The highest dam in all the world is tO|be built by the United States government in Boise canyon, Idaho. The dam, which will be located about twenty miles above the city of Boise, will be 351 feet high, 25 feet wide at the top and 1,060 feet long. This wonderful dam will he thrown across a narrow place in the high canyon and will hold back enough water to irrigate 250,000 acres of desert land. It will take three or four years to construct the masonry. Bed rock has been found at a depth of 90 feet below the surface of the river, and when completed the structure will occupy an acre of ground. It is only by storing the flood water In such dry sections of this country that the desert land can be reclaimed and made to grow Its share of crops. When this dam is completed the water will be drawn off into feeder canals through gates located near the top of the dam. As the level of the water is lowered gates lower in the dam will be opened, so that the gates will never be operated under an excessive head of water. The water pressure will be enormous, but modern hydraulic engineering is capable of handling such a giant task. Even should the Boise river be visited by a great flood it will not destroy the dam. Spillways located at each end qf the dam will carry away 40,000 cubic feet of water a second, and if necessary, water can run over the face of the dam itself to a depth of from two to four feet without inlurinsr the structure itself. But water Is of little value unless It can be applied direct to the parched earth and not In every case can it be handled by gravity alone. Certain sections around Boise can be irrigated by a canal system, dependent upon the natural flow of the water, but all the higher levels must be fed by an elaborate pumping system. These pumps will be operated by electric motors and the electric current will be obtained from the stored-up water. The dam will be pierced by a penstock, which will carry the water under enormous pressure to the water turbines, which in turn will drive powerful electric generators. This electrical energy will be transmitted over copper wires to the various pumping stations and fed to the motors as desired. If there is any excess power it can be readily sold in the city for manufacturing purpose*- ? Electrical News. POWERS OF A PRESIDENT. Limited Only by Short Tenure and Frequent and Regular Rotation. Now let us recapitulate these powers ?control of the army and navy and Federal police, possession of the money, control of the judiciary, of the dissemination of Information and of diplomacy?and all entrusted to an official who is independent of congress. No such i>owers are possessed by either the British or French premier even with the subordination of their parliaments. What more than this would any man require to enable him to do what Cromwell did, what Napoleon did. what Julius Caesar did? And what saves the country from any such catastrophe? First and chiefly the moral force of the constitution, of the traditions based on the Declaration of Independence and on the precepts and practices of 136 years; second, the moral conviction that the people of the United States are so attached to their form of government as to make it certain that any attempt to radical and violent change would be met by uprisings so vigorous as to crush instantly the petty force which a dictator might depend on. And among the chief foundations of that conviction is the hitherto unbroken rule that no man may serve as president for more than eight years or for more than four years without a reelection. If we accepted the doctrine that a president might remain in office indefinitely or for life, as suggested by the Outlook and in the question which opened this article, wherein would our chief executive differ from the German emperor? The name of the office might not be the same, hut names count for little. Emperor or imperator was the respected and popular title of a republican office long before it was adopted Jjy a monarch. King in early Saxon meant only chief or able man. Czar and kaiser are adaptations of the name Caesar. Cromwell was well content to exercise absolute power under the title of protector. An American monarch might continue to call himself president. What would it matter so long as the power was the same? And the power is already there, has always been there, limited only by short tenure and frequent and regular rotation. Can we afford, for the sake of honoring any man, however, much we may admire him, to remove even the least, much less one oi the greatest, of the restraints on a president's powers.? Buffalo Express. AMERICAN BUM8 ABROAD. I Find Thsm All Over the World But Mexico Hae the Biggest 8hare. While the American tramp and bum is In evidence In every foreign city, no matter In what part of the world you may travel, in Mexico he is not only evident, but numerous, and so much so that to the tourist he is a pest. The American tramp, hobo, Indigent American, "Weary Willie," or whatever you care to call him, will be found in every city and village of Mexico. With his pleading, begging story of hard luck and distress he is as strong with his plea for assistance as any bum you ever met on the Bowery. The republic of Mexico has for many years been a haven for the American "Weary Willies." There are several reasons for the presence of this great number of begging Ameri cans in every city in Mexico, iror many years nearly all the skilled labor of that republic has been performed by Americans, and many of these men fell victims to the white drinks of the tropics and finally became common street beggars. The American tramp found Mexico a warm, pleasant country, with thousands of prosperous fellow citizens to beg from and always the sympathetic tourist to prey upon. The government of Mexico has until recent years been very lenient with American tramps. The stringent vagrancy laws of Texas and o'.her southern states drove many of the hobo element to the Mexican republic. Until recent years no punishment for drunkenness and disorderly conduct was meted out to American tramps. In Mexico City today Americans are not punished for drunkenness, but receive medical attention, and are held only until sober. In Monterey, Tamplco, San Luis Potosi, Salinas Crux and several other of the larger cities the AmflMMMramp is nominally fined, an^H? not the wherewithal to pay h^^M^ielp clean the streets. If he does Join the chain gang it only opens another way and means to graft. The gendarme (police) under whom he works will allow him to beg and "bum" all Americans who pass by. Such graft is evenly divided with the police in charge. Seven years' residence in the tropics and daily contact with the professional tramp element convinced the writer that ninety per cent of the American tramps in Mexico are victims of tequila or mescal, which drinks have killed more Americans in the tropics than disease. Genuine tequila or mescal, if drunk in moderation would compare with the strong drinks of this country. But it seems impossible for a foreigner to partake moderately of these drinka The average life of the tequila fiends is from three to seven years, though I have known men of strong constitution to fight these poisonous drinks much longer. The American bum in Mexico can be truly called a scientific worker. Class among them Is as definitely and strictly defined as It is between the Four Hundred of New York and its underworld. The writer Bpent the night until the closing hour of ten o'clock in the Area de Noe, 3a San Juan de Letran, Mexico City. This place has for many years been the rendezvous and hangout for American tramps. Located, as it is, a few minutes' walk from all the leading hotels, the American bum has found it a veritable haven of refuge. In this small, dark, foul, Ill-smelling place, with Its six marble-topped tables, a drink may be purchased for two, three, six or twelve cents, Mexican money. In this place I met many brilliant and intelligent men, many of them Americans, who have helped reconstruct and build up Mexico. Here I met "the harper," known as the cleverest American bum in Mexico. I found the "dueno" (owner) paid him all the respect due a gentleman. "I have been a bum in Mexico for ten years," said "the harper," "and while I manage to get along, things are not what they once were here. Many American bums and tramps 'work' the tourists, but they are poor graft. The railroad and tourist companies warn their patrons nowadays against the American bum, and the limit of a touch from this class is a peseta (25 cents.) "The better class bum," continued my informant, after I had made a distress signal to the fat Spanish bartender, "when he first hits Mexico City 'works' his friends, and later takes up all the resident Americans who are engaged in his same line of business. Then he watches the newspapers, which daily publish the arrival of American guests at the hotels. A pair of riding breeches and a pair of English puttees have made many a man call himself a mining engineer in Mexico. "As for myself, I have found the old time American business man the fall guy' for a strong touch. To get to this class you must be a good conversationalist. talk on any subject and make good. After a while you wear out, and you must then become a 'steer.' That is, the bum picks up a new fellow bum and sends him uama nnnnlo fi-nm U'Vinm agaiuai inr ."?auic p^wpiv *? he himself has begged money. The 'steer' and his pupil divide the amount obtained, and so well does the 'steer' know his victims that there is no chance for the student to hold out on his instructor." I was much interested with my informant's talk, and after I bought drinks for him and several friends he introduced me to a number of the local colony. Americans and Englishmen, who had been rich and prominent, and who had, as civil engineers, built hundreds of miles of Mexican railroads. Here in this place had died "the Count," a Polish nobleman, victim of the "white line" drinks. I knew him when he was in wealth and influence, and, had he lived six weeks longer, another $30,000 would have been paid him. Here I met Jacob L., once the richest American in Mexico City, and who brought the first American sawmill to the country; a former captain in the United States army; an actor who not so many years ago was well known along Broadway; a former American naval officer; chemists who had drawn fabulous salaries from the leading mining companies; men of prominence in ail walks of life?all victims of the "white line" drinks, and from them all "the harper," who had been my guide to Mexico City's underground world, received homage and respect. "There is nothing to it," continued "the harper." "The bum's money all goes for drink. No good tramp ever asks another for help, no matter how dire may be his need, but it Is an unwritten law that a fellow tramp must always buy a drink." ' The American bum has once In Mexico caused the American government to be Involved. "Mike Green," an indigent American, was rounded up with a bunch of peons and sent to the Valle Naclonal, at that time a convict colony. There he died, and General Powell Clayton, the American minister at that time, started an Investigation which led to the arrest of Candldo Hernandez, a wealthy tobacco planter. The latter was In prison In Tuxtepec and Oaxaca for several years, and an Indemnity of >20,000 was paid Green's sister. During the recent revolution many of the hobo element became soldiers of fortune In the Madero army and rendered valuable aid to the cause of the Insurrecto leader. When the war was over they drifted back to the old haunts, and today you will find them telling their stories of hard luck to whosoever will lend a willing ear. ?New York Tribune. Playing With Fire.?Everybody who Is at all conversant with conditions knows that unrest is general in Europe. The long peace may be broken at any time. Yet despite this the powers continue to permit the TurcoItallan war to drag along, -pregnant as It is with dangerous possibilities. Certainly It would be a comparatively easy task for the chancellories of Europe to force a peace. Already Italy, finding the financial .burden of the war great, is planning to bombard the forts at the Dardanelles. There is a menace in this to every power on the continent. Yet the nations persist in permitting the fire to continue, as if the next wind may not cause a general conflagration. It is madness, that is all. There is so much talk about the peace movement as an abstract thing and so little done in practice.?News and Courier. HOUSEHOLD CARES. Tax the Women of Yorkville the dame As Elsewhere.
