Asleep On the High Henry P.ahrenherj; was not a tad man. lie waa kind hearted, honest and brave. He was one of the very best runner ou the road. He was ti feet 7 and cnl?lit have lin-n taller had be not stooped slightly. He was so high, pegan said, that if ever he fell down it would kill him. He had a quick, nervous teu and an apologetic mile. Unfortunately for himself and his friends, he had an uncontrollable temper. I'eople said he lost it often. Henry often wished he could lose it gtermanently. He was likely when sud denly angered to do things which caus ed him unhappy days and sleepless bights of regret. But if a man said calmly and dispas sionately: "Henry. I don't care for you. I hate you for the long, hungry hound that you are. You delight to punish people, and I think I can climb all over your bent and bony frame" "Stop, stop!" Henry would exclaim. "Don't say another word." And he would prepare for the fall. Having agreed to fight fair, nenry would not break his word, though his wrath might choke him. On the eve of a presidential election Henry entered a little hotel after a bard run with the general manager's special and found a party of working men talking politics. When Henry had traced his long name in a long band across the broad !ook that l:ty upon the counter, a big Irishman strolled up. smote the page witb bis band and yelled: "Oi'm a rimmycrat'." "So'm I." said Henry. "Shaker "Oi'm an Irishman." "I'm not." "You're a d Dutchman!" "Wil." s:id Henry, smiling and blushing like a schoolgirl. "I'm a Dutchman." "An Oi kin lick anny Dutchman that walks." I ride most of the time." "Thin Oi kin lick anny Dutchman that rides." "Well. I guess that means me." The night clerk came out from his little bos and locked the door. Those who were to take the part of noucom batants began to pile the chairs up round the stove which stood in the taxwdust floor and had just been fired up that day to take the November chill off the air. It was understood that there should be no kicking or biting, but that the fight would not necessarily eud or Ten lag witb a knockdown. The men fought silently. When they had been at it ten minutes, the Irish man was perfectly sober, and Heury had recovered from the fatigue of a two hundred mile run. Five minutes later Henry lay under the Irishman, but holdrtig both of bis wrists. "Tou're licked." said Henry. "OI know ut. So' re you." . "But I don't know it." "The more fool you." The men tried to laugh, but they couldn't make much of a success or it la view of the way their mouths were disarranged. "Will we git up?" "Just as you say." ' Then Henry released the big black amlth's wrists, and they both got to their feet. Henry was a sight to see. but the Irishman could not see him. Noah, who fired for High Henry, was of another piece. He was meek and lowly, quiet as a Quaker, guileless and good. But Noah had one deplor able weakness. He could not stay awake. He was probably sound asleep, though it was only 9:33 in the even ing, when he went down to the bottom of the Gunnison river under the noto rious Xo. 10". It would have come to the same thing In the end. asleep or awake, for you remember how the en gine was cut off the train by a big owtder that shot down the mountain , with the speed of a cannon ball. Noah had gone, to sleep on Henry two or three times, and Henry, being exact even witb himself, would stand j o fo I'shcess that might lead him into trouble. He bad taken Xoah by the eck one and bad said, with bis teeth et and bis s reel blue eyes Cashing fixe dike a trolley wheel: "Noah. I like you. Son are about the boat fellow. I ctct Zy CY f WARM AN 5 r Copyright, J l&Ol.by i Cy Warmta. k y n in urn." Toor Xoah was shaking like an as pen, for b- knew how lli-h lienry wjs teiuiered. and lie proinised never to nod at."' Ahotst 4 o'cl'-ck oise mmnins They were -o!itig down the un.iintai'j i freight. It w;!s a warm spring ui ni lug. The frot had gone out 01 th earth and left the dumps a?:d tills ufu road was couiparati v ly newt s ift liiii' sprint'y. They had Uc i :!; rond doiilii;ng the hill, for forty-eiht h :irs and X aii was making the efit.ri i f '.i: life to ke'y awake. The tlinr t.r. men were sitting at intervals al t f.i ' top of the train. I okinu like iIa kei. v j on a fence. The time card gave tliem j two hours and twenty minutes to make ; twenty miles. and all von hear is the j clickety cliek of the idle wilves. the squeak and cry of the brake shoes n' the-smoi.ii.g wheels , !he I w mens ured snore of the uii-pump, and that sound will put you to sleep like the patter of rain on a roof or the sound of horses munching hay when you're ly ing in the haymow. Noah had n-.dded once or twice, and Henry once had yelled at him. They had crawled down within five miles of the foot of the hill when Noah broke the stillness: "Wope. woe! Ijk out there! Stop 'er, stop 'erf Henry hooked the engine over, put the air ou full, screamed for brakes to warn the trainmen, and the -HO set against the train as a mule sets back at a bad bridge, her wheels going round the other way and a flood of fire going out of her stack. "Well." said Henry when they had come to a stop, "what is it'" "I don't see notliin." said Xoah. peering through his window. "Well, didn't you say stop?" "I never said notliin'." "Noah, do you want to die?" "No. sir." "S'mattcr. Henry?" snouted the head biakeman from the top of the train. "I don't know. l:d you see any thing?" "No." "Hid you hear anything?" "Yes; heard Noah yell to you to stop 'er." "Come out of there. Xoah I" "I won't come out. Henry, "cause you'll kill me. I won't take a Ik-kin' when I ain't done u thin'." Henry passed his bony hand over his eyes as a man will when not quite sure of himself. He looked ahead where the headlight shone ou the two tl.in threads of steel that turned three cars away and disappeared round a a high rock. By this time Henry's wrath had cooled down, and without another word he put the lever for ward, released the airbrakes, and the train moved forward again. When the big black engine put her nose round the curve, which was to Henry's side, the engineer saw a great black I gap in the track, over which the rails sagged, holding the crossties. "Look out! Jump.'" it was Henry's Tolce this time, and Xoah. being wide the meantime 410 was holding and straining against the heavy train that kept shoving her nearer and nearer to the gap that yawned in the grade. At last she stopped, witb the soft earth oozing away under her pilot. She could not move the fifteen loads that were behind her that had climb ed the bill with the help of two other engines so there she had to stand un til help cauie and pulled the cars back to a sidetrack. A little stream of clear water bad been trickling down the mountain side for days and days and soakiug Into the grade. Finally the till became mushy, and when the two light engines that had helped Henry up the hill went by they shook the grade, and the mu&b slid out and down to the bottom of the gulch 200 feel below. When the trainmen and engiuemen had come down and stood at the edge of the break, little Tim Grady crossed himself. "Noah, you dirty faced devil." said High Henry, "come here an let me hug you." Hawthorne's "Cursed Ilshlt." It would be easy to explain Haw thorne's peculiar temperament after the modern fashion by reference to heredity and environment. Xo doubt there was a strain of eccentricity in the family. He himself tells of a cou sin who made a spittoon out of the skull of bis enemy, aud it is natural that a descendant of the old Puritan witch judge should portray tLe weird and grotesque aspects of life. IToba bly. too. his native tendency was in creased by the circumstances that sur rounded bis youth, the seclusion of his mother's life, his boyhood on Lake Se bago. where, as he says, he first got his "cursed habit of solitude." and the long years during which be lived as a hermit in Salem. But after all these external matters and even the effect of heredity, so far as we can fathom it. explain little or nothing A thousand other men might have written his books if their source lay In such antecedents. Behind it all was the demonic.force of the man him self, the everlasting mystery of genius inhabiting his brain and choosing him to be an exemplar and interpreter of the inviolable individuality in which lie the pain and glory of our human estate. Paul Elmer More in Atlantic Monthly. Te Dfrll'i Kuril. Among the famous bells of Dews burg. Yorkshire. England, is one known as "Biaok Tom of Soothill." which was presented to the church In expiation of a murder. "Black Tom" is always rung on Christmas eve.

So spoke Charles Heurotin of the Alliance Franca is. which has succeed ed In bringing a French school to Chi cago. This school is to be affiliated with the Chicago university and is to be started off with $1,000,000 by M. jtobert Lebaudy of Paris, who conducts the French sugar trust. "We are highly pleased over the se lection of Chicago." said President Harper of the Chicago university to a reporter of the Xew York World. "The school is just what we want. M. Le baudy has been deeply impressed with the business, acumen of the Americans. Our commercial expansion set him thinking. The result is that he has de cided to establish a school here where ouug Frenchmen, while pursuing their studies, can absorb some of the ener gy and ideas of Americans. M. Emil Ridel, who was sent to make the Selection of the site, said Chicago was the most American city. The mis sion of M. Lazarre Wei Her, who has been 6ent to the Cnited States by the French minister of commerce, is to study the conditions here and deter mine as nearly as possible the curric ulum and line of study to be followed by the French students. M. Weiller also expects that his visit will aid him in deciding from which classes of soci ety the government should select the students. Sixty scholarships will be provided by the French government, and all ex penses of students will be paid. A French library of 10.OO0 volumes is to be part of the equipment. Clrra fl.OOO For Kiaditu.

The secret of a contented cook is the kitchen, window garden. I'pon many other counts it is well worth while. Xo matter, who cares for it. bouse mistress or maid, it can be made the source of infinite pleasure aud no little homely comfort. The possibilities of a kitchen window garden are almost as wonderful aud as various as those of humanity itself. The moist, warm air suits all manner of growing things ever so much I'tter than the starchy atmosphere of the parlor. The garden, of course, must have the sunuiest window and. if jkis silile. also the warmest one. Have it fitted with shelves rather far apart and as high as cau be conveniently reached. Ordinary wooden lioxes with zinc trays underneath to catch the drip are liest. They sh Mild be just as long as the shf les and of varying depths. The deeM-st. therefore the heaviest, shoul.l be on the ! west shelf, which sh Mild 'Ml A KITCHEN WINDOW GARDEN. be of such height as to bring the lox surface level with the window. Plant in this Ikix sweet herbs. It will give space for a supply as plenteous as it Is varied. Iu lietween their roots radishes may grow. The next Ikjx should le given over tc pot herbs green celery, parsley and all their ilk. A pinch of kale seed or mustard seed sprinkled over every mouth or so will provide supplies o( tender greens all the year round. A clump of chives may fill one cor ner, a knot of leeks another. Tiny onions may be stuck d iwn in the earth and plucked for eating as soon as they are full of sweet growin? juice. Give the third lox to salads, lettuce and its kind. Sow radishes in the let tuce rows and pick out either for green herbs or roots as they grow. In the last two of the boxes one may grow flowers. Watrrlns Potted Plant. The writer once beard a lady ex claim when she was told not to water too freely dnring the winter that she watered her plants every day. and yet they nearly always seemed wilted. It was suggested that the drainage was too free, but she admitted that she knew little or nothiug aliout that. However, the first sight of the plants showed the cause of the particular condition mentioned. In potting she had actually filled the pots with soil t . the rim. with an extra little heap in the center around the stalks. The re sult was when she watered most of it ran down over the sides of the pots, and what little remained on top was not sufficient to sink more than half an inch leiow the surface cf the soil, leaving the lower feeding roots to go dry altogether and only spasm-:dic.iily reviving the plants. Never fill a flower pot more than within an inch of the top, and yon may fill this space at wa tering without damage, provided too have good drainage.
