1 : `O H -OX WAGON.
the straining span, the tune tered tilt, Swesy in perilous ways of the wag tat w s ung in the ancient tongue w;.; P hediysof the world dawned gray, f:Ie reaking croon of the disselboom, thesong that is sung today. 'Eat and west and south and north the first born herdsmen spread, S. .n the watets clear of the high Pamir, from the ancient Oxus bed. tdn and on to the plains of the Don their creak ; ing wagons ran, .And the disMelboom showed out the doom that has given the earth to man. Over the sands of the thirsty lands, under a brazen sky, Where the only law men bow before is the law of the assegai, Forth and forth to the dim far north where the broad Zambezi flows Still today in the ancient way the rumbling wagon goes. Through the forest ways where the wild things graze, the dappled, the fawn, the gray; Where the tall "kameel" at sunset steal like ghosts to the silent vley; Where the lions drink at the reedy brink of the slowly shallowing pan, The disselboom shows out the doom that has given the earth to man. Slow and slow the wagons go by thicket and thorn and pool, But their thin path traced on the homeless waste is the road of the coming rule, And in dreadof that track the wild slinks back, and the thief and the beast give place To the farm and field and the yearly yield of the men of the wiser race. East and west and south and north from the days of the dawn till now, Ere grass was burned or sod was turned by the share of the furrowing plow, This was the tune of the tattered tilt, the song of the straining span, How the dtsselboom points out the doom that has given the earth to man. -St. James Gazette. A GOOD TIME COMING. It was an October day, and the air was charged with the aromatic sharpness that follows the change in nature caused by the first frost. The sounds of the woods had changed from the summer murmur to the autumn rustle, and na ture, like an aging coquette, was dress ing herself in gaudy colors for her last season. The maples were clustered in crimson magnificence on the knolls and ridges, while the elms and ashes in the hollows clothed themselves in softest yellows shot with green. And in the fields departing summer was shod with the russet of the stubble lands. Through this scene of melancholy beauty was wandering fitfully, now half running, now sitting down, disquieted and unnerved, a man who see-med strangely out of keeping with it all. He was tall and gaunt, sharp eyed, and in moments of repose a man who bore all the marks of authority. His lips invol untarily shaped themselves to a "sneer of cold command," and his high, pale brow, with its bright, transparent skin, spoke of ceaseless thought. But he was acting like one possessed. He would walk along rapidly for a few moments, scanning the trees like an In dian pot hunter and holding his gun in readiness for a quick shot. Then he would stop suddenly, arrested by a thought. Sometimes the thought would be one that would wring an oath from his lips, and sometimes it would bring to his face a look of perplexity that would end in the nervous laugh that tells of an uncomfortable feeling at the heart-the kind that often brings a moisture to the eyes and a choking feel ing to the throat. Hiram Pratt was stirred to the depths of his nature-stir red as he thought he never could be. At one moment be would regret the im pulse that had taken him back to his old home on the farm, and at the next he would thrill with boyish delight at the thought of bagging gray squirrels and quail, just as he used il his youth. His friends in New York would have been "deeply concerned" could they have seen him. He had just spent the night with his mother in the old log house where he was born and had learned anew some thing that he had fc--gotten. In hIis business career he had schooled himself to consider money everything and sen timent nothing, but in that old house sentiment was supreme and counted for more than the riches of a palace. When he asked his mother why she did not live in the fine brick house which he had had built for her and which his .brother now lived in, she replied: "Why, Hiram, your father brought me here when we were married and when there wasn't five acres cleared on the farm. You were all born here, and all who are dead died here, and as I potter about you are all with me as you were when you were young. It wouldn't be the same in the new house." Then she put up her old wrinkled face to be kissed as in the other days, and the worldly man stooped and kiss ed her. As he did the hardness of his heart chilled him like a curse, and snatching up a candle he hastened to the room her loving hands had prepared for him. All night he tossed on his pil low, striving to strike a balance between the love and tenderness he had lost and the millions he had gained, and it was because the problem was still painfully unsolved that he wandered*about so dis tractedly through the October woods. At last he came to the thicket where ithere used to be a covey of partridges every fall, but now there was no whir ring of wings at his approach. But the fallen oak round which they used to hide and beside which he used to set the figure of four trap isthe old days ,before the game laws were enforced was still there in almost the same con 'dition as when he saw it last. He seat ed himself on the mossy trunk, and as his mind gradually quieted, soothed by the peace of nature, he went hack to his boyhood and lived it all over again. At last he remembered, and the memory came to him with the shcck of a discovery who his companion and guide used to be in almost all his hunt ing expeditions. Old Sam Ehret! Could it be possible that he was still alive? Of course it could? Sam was only 15 years older than he was, though every body called him "old" 30 years ago. But that was only on account of his al most senile simplicity and natural shift lessness. Sam couldn't be more than 63 yet, and of course he must be alive. What times they used to have, trapping mink and shooting squirrels. This train of thought cleared the moral atmos phere for the millionaire at once. He would not be seatisfied with coming to the old farm; he would go back to his youth and go out hunting with Sam. He had no real-intention of doing any hunting when he left the house and bad merely picked up the old gun as an euxnae to set away k the woods, where be io6uld-be aloie with his troubled thoughts. But now he would visit old Sam, and they would have an afternoon of hunting. This decision save him such a thrill that out of pure exuber ance of spirits he forgot his gun was loaded and cocked, swung it up and drew a bead on a clump of leaves in the top of a tall hickory. The explosion that instantly followed, sending the echoes rolling nlrough the woods and starting the crows cawing, brought him out of his dreams with a shock, but the sound of the gun revised all his passion for shooting. After carefully reloading the old muzzle loader he started toward Sam's farm. As he reached the farm he was sur prised to find it so changed. There were new barns and stables and a new house, and everything was spick and span. He expected to see tumble down buildings and rickety fences instead of evidences of prosperity. But he strode cheerily across the field toward the house, inhaling the smell of the newly plowed soil, resolved to find out from the first person he met what had become of old Sam. Presently he saw a man busily digging in a ditch at the end of a field and directed his steps toward him. As he approached nearer he could hardly believe himself. It was undoubt edly his old friend, working away as if his life depended on it. "Hello, Sam," he called cheerily as he came within hailing distance, "how are you?" The digger stopped, looked at the stranger with an inquiring stare and answered half shyly: "Hello! Nice day." "Why, don't you remember me?" "I must say you've got the start of me." Pratt held up the index finger of his left hand, showing a rough, corrugated nail, and asked, with a laugh: "What! You surely don't forget the fellow who went to pull the woodchuck out of the hollow tree in Black's woods and almost had his finger bitten off, do you?" Sam's grizzled and whiskered face lit up suddenly, and he scrambled out of the ditch. "Why!" he exclaimed as he transfer red the mud from his hand to the leg of his trousers. "If it ain't little Hiram Pratt. Well, now, " and he shook hands with him vigorously, "when did you get home?" "Last night." "Well, well, and you've come back to see us again. My, how you have grown and changed t Well, I suppose we've all got to get older. How's your mother? Glad to see you, wasn't she? Well, welll And they tell me you've got awful rich. I suppose you could buy out all the old neighbors now, couldn't you?" Pratt laughed at the estimate of his wealth - he could have bought the whole county and turned it into a shoot ing park had he wished-and modestly replied that he didn't think lie could do that, though he had got along pretty well. Then lie changed the subject by remarking on old Saml's evident pros perity. "Yes," said the old mall delightedly, "things are lookin better, ain't they? But of course you heard all about it?" Pratt had not heard. "Oh, no," he said, "this ain't my doings at all. They are Walter's. My oldest boy, Walter, you know. Jee! I guess he was born after you left, wasn't he? Well, well, how time does fly, to be sure. I tell you, Walter is a mighty smart boy, but an awful fellow to work," and a half frightened expres sion came over his face. As old Sam said this lie jumped back into the ditch and picked up his shovel as if he were going to dig again. "Well," said Pratt, "I'm glad your family is turning out so well, but you used to be more fond of hunting than of plowing and digging, didn't you?" "Yes, but I ain't done no hunting in the last three or four years." "Why, there are lots of squirrel left, are there not, and some quail and par tridge?" "Yes, but Walter would not let me," said the old man doggedly. "Would not lot you! That's strange." "No, lie sold my gun. " "You surprise me." "Well, I guess he was right. I used to waste an awful lot of time with it when I should have been working. If I had not wasted so much time, I would not have got into debt. I suppose you heard about that, didn't you?" "Why, no; I did not hear anything about it." "Oh, I was in awful trouble. I could not sleep nights or anything. The-store bills kept getting bigger, and then I gave notes, and then a little mortgage, and the times kept getting harder and the taxes higher until I was almost crazy. But I tell you," and a little gleam of pride lit up his face, " Walter has changed all that, and even though he does make me work hard I don't know that I have any right to com plain. You see, this is the way it was: When things got to the very worst and we were afraid the sheriff would come, Walter offered that if I would make over the farm to him and agree to work for him until I was 70 lie would pay off all the debts, give something to each of the other children, and that after I was 70 neither myself nor the old woman would have to do any more work. He would support us, and we would have to worry about nothing." By a series of questions Pratt learned from the old man all the details of this wonderful bargain. He learned that the simple hearted old man was practically a slave to his greedy and selfish son. He had to get up at 5 o'clock in the morning and work until 9 at night, and the unfilial brute had dared at times to thrash his father for not working as bhard as he thought he should. More over, lie dlid not allow hits to Ihtve meat or good food except when he was working hard. In the winter time, when there was nothing to do but chores, the old man and his wife were forced to live on cornmeal and buck wheat. The rich mall's wrath sarose as lihe learned of the miserable story, and his heart was moved with unwonted pity as he saw that his old friend was look ing forward with such simple anticipa tion to the good tinome coming when he would be 70 years and free. The prob abilities were that lie would be worked to death before thens; if not, that he would be starved to death soon after ward. Although the old man complained, and with touching candor told of the treatment he was receiving, he really blaned himself more than M'- son. Good Is essential to health. Every nook and corner of the system is reached by the blood, and on its quality thecondition of every organ de pends. Good blood means strong nerves, good digestion, robust health. Impure blood means scrofula, dyspepsia, rheuma tism,catarrh or other diseases. The surest way to have good blood is to take Hood's Sarsaparilla. This medicine purifies, vi talizes, and enriches the blood, and sends the elements of health and strength to every nerve, organ and tissue. It creates a good appetite, gives refreshing sleep and cures that tired feeling. Remember, Hoods Sarsaparilla Is the best,- in fact the One True Blood Purifer. Hood's cure Liver Ills; easy to Hood's Pills take, easy to operate. 250. '-'alt' r has bern hard," he said, "but I can't say I deseivo much more. I lived in :a way that brought us all into debt, and I have caused him a lot of worry in getting out, and you know, Hiram, what, debt is, especially to a man who feels that he would not rob any one in thile world, " At this moment the conversation was interrupted by a shout. Looking in the direction from which it came, a man was seen standing on the fence, waving his arnms angrily. "That's Walter," said the old man as he commenced shoveling for dear life. "He wants me to get this ditch finished and the tile laid in it before the frost comes. "No, Hiram, I can't go shooting With you this time. Walter can't spare me, and I ain't got any money to get powder and shot with, though I guess I could borrow Thompson's gun if I wanted it. But, I tell you, if you come back seven years from now, when I ain't got nothing to do, we will go out hunting again and have a good time just the same as we used to. You have not got a plug of chewing tobacco, have you?" "No. " "City folks don't chew much, do they? Walter said it was a dirty and ex pensive habit, and he made nme stop, but sometimes I get a chew when I go to a thrashing or logging bee." The millionaire had a strong inclina tion to walk over to the other field and bag the brilliant Walter instead of go ing to the woods to hunt for inoffensiw squirrels. He felt that he would enjoy putting a charge of cold lead into him about as much as he used to enjoy put ting it into a skunk. But he restrained himself and walked back to the woods. There he sat down on an old oak log, wondering-for his heart for once in many years was full of the kindliest feeling-if it would not be a worthy deed to buy the freedom of his old friend. I-IH could certainly find some way of doing it without causing too much talk, and it would be a deed of charity that might do something to soft on the hardness of his past life. But as he thought it all over and remembered how the old man was looking forward to a good tinme coming he paused. After all, what was the difference between them ? The old man was a slave to his son, and lie was simply a slave to his busi ness. He was looking forward to a good time coming when lie would be able to retire and live on his wealth. But he knew in his heart that, under the train ing he had given himself, lie could not live if he were not at the head of the corporation he had built up and still struggling fiercely to make more money --money for which lie had no need. Perhaps, after all, the old man was as happy as he, and if lie set him free now he would simply take from him the on ly thing lie was working for and look ing forward to and make him end lis life in sordid inactivity. The old man had something to live for, something to hope for, something to look forward to, and he had as good a chance of realiz ing it as most people have in this world. If he interfered, he would hbe what most charitable people are-merely a med dler. And he was right. While he was sit ting in tihe woods old Sam was digging away in the ditch, with his heart full of happy anticipations of the good time he would have when he was 70 and his old friend, Hiram Pratt, would conime back and go out hunting with him. Truth. Truth. A Woman's Palace. St. Petersburg owes its second great palace, The Hermitage, to a fantasy of Catherine II. Originally The fHermitage was a small pavilion attached to the winter palace-a place of recreation, where friendly causerie, as it was un derstood in the last century, could be carried on without court formalities. The imperial hostess drew up a series of rules for these parties and placed them on a table near the door.. "Leave your rank outside as well as your hat," says the first rule. "Be gay, but do not spoil anything; do not break or gnaw anything.". is a somewhat omlillnous ad monition, but tlhose to "argue with.out anger and without extitemetr," and "neither to sigh nor to yawn, nor itmake anybody dull or heavy," arce rules which should be enforced in every draw ing room today.-New York World. Origin of a Much Quoted Saw. The origin of "A fool and his money are soonll parted" has not been ascer tained with certainty, but the following story is sometimies told : "G(eorge Buch •,an, tutor to James IV of Scotland, made a bet with a courtier that he (Buchallat) could make-a coarser verse than the courtier. Buchanan rose atul, picking up the courtier's money, walked off with the remark, 'A fool and his money are soon parted.' " - Ladies' Home Journal. Naval Lieutenant de Gerlaiehi, the organizer and leader of the projected antarctic expedition, will start trom Antwerp on July 15 on the steamer La Belgica. The expedition will be on the same lines as Wandel's arctic expedi tion and will take with it a perfect set of apparatus for scientific observations, together with three years' provisions. TREED BY A BEAR. Terrible Experience of a Schoolteacher In Sullivan County. Lucretia Ritter, a pretty little school teacher of Sullivan county, N. Y., had a terrible experience recently.

She br., ly waved her lunch basket toscare toe , lni mal, but was almost petrified with lcr ror when she discovered that it was a full grown bear. The bear made a rush for her, and the girl in her fright climb ed partly up a crooked tree. To add to her terror, her clothing became fasten ed to a broken limb of a tree, and tie frightened girl was unable either to s cend or descend.

Dr. Arthur McDonald, the Washing ton criminologist,thinks that ev. ry a:ln, woman and child in the cauotry s ounid be measured according to the 13,r,iiJon system and the resulting data preserved by a government bureau, with branch es in every township. This, he says, would not only almost put an end to crime by making detection practically certain, but it would be of service in scores of ways among perfectly respect able people, like lawyer's, bankers, in surance men and all others to whom questions of identity are of great impor tance.

Which car must I take?" "The one with two red lights," re plied the stranger. "It'll be along after awhile. " The old man waited. Car after car passed in succession, but one red light was all they carried. He stopped every motorman, but they could only inform him that the car he wanted was just lehind and would reach him before daylight. Then he sat down in the doorway of the gas office and fell fast asleep. Later on a policeman roused him. I.e stared stupidly around until his gaze rested on a car which was within ten feet of him. He saw two blazing balls of red fire glaring up the track, and he made a leap for them, closely followed by the policeman.
