His name was not Johnnie Morgan; It was Antonio Pansado. But from that day almost a year ago when she first heard and saw him, a very dirty and very picturesque Italian violinist, fiddling his way through the tightened rmrse strings and into the hearts of all who heard him, she had christened him and to herself had called him "Johnnie Morgan." Almost a year it was and to her the shortest year she had ever lived, for it seemed as if this Antonio had brought with him into her life the blue sky and the sunshine of his own Italy. Miss Anna Gilbert was the teacher of drawing and painting In the Girls' College at Madisonville, and was more beloved than any teacher of the col lege had ever been before. The title which the girls had given her, "Saint Anna," was truly deserved, for so thickly did she sow the seeds of good ness about her that had her harvest of thanks from poor struggling students been wheat at the right time of the market it would have given her a princess' income. During her youth, for it must be confessed her youth was mostly be hind her, sne had worked and sacri ficed for her parents until their death, and then she struggled for the educa tion of her younger brother and sis ter. One gray October morning on her way to work she had been struck by the evident genius of the young Italian, who was playing his violin on the street. Always attracted by music she stopped to listen and was struck by the combination of poverty 'and genius in the handsome young fellow. He certainly was unusually hand some and he looked even younger than he was for his face possessed a great sincerity and ingenuousness of expres sion. The soft dark eyes and olive skin were enhanced by the exceeding thinness of the face and by the hun gry look in the eyes a hunger for spir itual and mental as well as physi cal food, which, shining from those dark eyes appealed directly and power fully to this warm-hearted woman. Knowing of an opening in the college she quietly put the man and the op portunity together, with the result that the Italian, within a month, was giv ing lessons to a class. And the class grew immediately from three to thir teen. To bis patroness he owed all, and never did he cease to pour out to her his gratitude. He treated her with the greatest reverence and when walking tome with her or meeting her coming to her duties he would hold open the gate or raise his hat as if she were a princess. Then she got Into the habit ot asking him to come in when he walked home with her and of making a cup of tea in her little bachelor room, which always seemed cosy and pleas ant to them both, and had made his thanks overflow to "Mees Anna." She A picturesque Italian violinist, discovered that hs was saving almost all hi earnings toward a sum which would enable him to bring over his old father and mother. He poured out his music to Miss Gilbert, as he did his troubles, with those "foolish girls who will not work at ze lesson." And to all his plans and troubles she listened with sym pathy, as she always had done to any of the students in whom she was tak ing a special interest But sympathy and friendliness- in a woman's heart toward a man, when the man Is young, handsome and manly, is going to grow into love aa surely a the acorn which ED TO KNOW and other tunes sang among the Junes . When the corn began to tassel ; When the lazy summer breeze Shook the perfume from the flowers 4 Dame Nature also planted is going to grow into an oak. One June day after he had walked home with her she sat in her room and with many blushes faced it faced this fact that she loved the violinist. The song was all true: She loved her "Johnnie Morgan." And why not? she asked herself. Had she not worked hard for others all her life and been faithful in all things? Was it not right that the sunshine of love and happiness should come into her life. She dreamed that night of a cottage filled twith the music of a violin; and "He is her Johnnie Morgan." never had she looked so radiant and so young as she did the next day. "I had a letter this morning from my little sister," she said to Antonio the next evening as he walked home with her. "She is coming next week to spend her vacation with me." "Ah, the little sister. I shall love the little child for the sake of Saint Anna," exclaimed Antonio. Saint Anna laughed. "Oh, she's not so small as all that," she replied. Saidie is eighteen and a great tall girl, but I call her my little sister because she always has been my baby. She has been at Normal school and next season she will begin to teach." Saidie came, and a rosebud of rare perfection she was a perfect type of blonde beauty, with a warm heart and a vivacity which charmed all who met her. To her physical charms she add ed a character built on strongest foun dations, for to this baby sister had Miss Anna given all the loving care and earnestness of thought, all the building up of ideals that she had missed in her own girlhood and ac quired in her hard battles with the world. The next time Antonio walked home with his "St. Anna" she insisted that he come in and see the "little sister." He came and they had a cup of tea, and Antonio, who was prepared to make himself agreeable for the sake of his patroness and friend, soon for got all about her in the presence of the sparkling youth and beauty of Sal die. He came more often than ever after that and sat in undisguised rap ture and adoration at the feet of the younger girl. Nor was she less at tracted by the dark faced foreigner with the soft black eyes. As Miss Anna watched them It all came to her and she saw, not as through a glass darkly, but as in the glare of the morning light, how it al! was and would be. She had built up these two, had given them sustenance from her own nature, had fed their souls and warmed their hearts, for this very thing. And what could be better, she thought, than that these two young things, full of life and love and the sunshine of the present and promise of the future, should love each other. Nothing, she told herself, noth ing could be better. It was natural. It was right. As she stood in front of her glass she looked closely at herself, scanning her features critically. , "You thought you could be young again?" she said, "but you had more than ten years against you." She looked closely at her heavy brown hair and noting the few gray hairs about the temples she smiled a little sadly to herself. She looked lov ingly at Saidie, asleep on the bed, and said softly: "He Is her Johnnie Morgan," and then with a weary sigh, "Oh. how glad I . am that Wellesley needs another drawing teacher next year." If Saidie had been awake instead of E ffl asleep she might have seen above the head of St Anna, the ring of white light which crowned the head of this saint in this her supreme hour of sac rifice. SOLD THEIR WIVES. Certain Classes In England Believe They May Sail Their 6ponses. In March, 1796, the London Times announced the sale of a wife in Shef field for sixpence, .nd a little while afterward the same paper solemnly in formed the public that the price of wives had risen in Smithfield market from half a guinea to three guineas and a half. In 1803 It Is recorded a man led his wife by a halter into the cattle market at Sheffield and sold her for a guinea. The market value of a wife seems to have dropped as tho century grew older, for in 1820 a worthy husband in Canterbury placed his wife in a cattle pen and disposed of her for five shillings. In 1855 the people of Derby had the opportunity of buying a wife of one of their fellow townsmen. The woman was led to the market place with a halter round her waist and was knocked down for eighteen pence and a quart of beer. In the '80s n collier sold his wife at Alfreton, in Derbyshire, for four pence and in the same decade two Sheffield men agreed to the buying and selling of a wife In a public house. "At the Royal Oak, Sheffield," the agreement ran: "I, Abraham Boothroyd. agreed to sell my wife, Clare, to William Hall, both of Sheffield, for the sum of five shillings." There is not even the relief in these cases of consoling one's self with the reflection that th? sale of the wife is a thing of impulse Often enough it Is a deliberate com mercial transaction in cold blood, as in the case that came to light a few years ago in which the wife, with her parents and two friends, met tc arrange the terms of the sale. The price was fixed at thirty shillings and the bill of sale ran: "Mr. tc have my wife, Elizabeth , free from me forever, to do as she has a mind, this day, Dec. 11, 1893." The notion that a man may sell his wife and marry again Is common among certain classes of the English popula tion. A prisoner at Leeds on his trial for bigamy pleaded that the charge could not stand, as he had sold hia wife for three shillings six pence, and was therefore entitled to marry again The case is barely six years old. About the same time another instance was reported from a village near Don caster, the circumstances coming to light in the police court. 'T, Enoch Childs," the agreement ran, "is quite willing to take your wife and children as mine, that is, your wife Ellen Tart, and Sarah, John, Henry and Eliza." The paper was signed by the wife of the purchaser and dated "New Conls borough, March 28, 1896." Chicago News. KING AND A PEASANT'S COW. Italian Ruler Guards Animal for An Aged Woman. Some days ago the King and Queen of Italy took a long promenade in the neighborhood of their chateau of Rac conigi, their summer residence. The Queen suddenly became intensely thirsty. Perceiving an old woman near who was watching a cow the King re quested her to give him a little milk. The peasant, ignorant of the quality of her guests, pretended that her cow gave no milk. "But you have some water at your house," continued the King. "That' yes," replied the old wo man. "Could you get some for me?" "If you would keep my cow while I went for it." "Agreed," replied Victor Emmanuel in the most serious fashion in the world. At the end of ten min utes the old woman returned with a bowl of fresh water. "But how does it happen," demanded the King, "that there are so few people in the coun try?" "They have all gone down to the chateau to see the King.the Queen and the little Princess. It is only we old ones that one leaves at the house and who will never see them." "But you see them, my worthy woman," re plied the King, giving her a new gold piece. "We are the King and Queen." The peasant woman began to tremble and in despairing voice cried: "Par don me. Sire, I did not know." Tb Queen had all the trouble in the world to calm the poor woman, who kept repeating: "To think that I have gi'en my cow to guard to the King!" Health Resorts and Rest. The importance attained by health resorts in Europe is shown by the fact that the German and Austrian medical profession with the co-operation of the. governments of those countries has ap pointed a committee to arrange cheap excursions which will give physicans and medical students an opportunity of visiting and examining the health resorts of the two countries. This committee includes two famous med ical men. Prof, von Leyden and Prof Liebreich. The first excursion party will visit the seacoast resorts in Sep tember. It may be the result of the above conception of the scope of med ical treatment that in these countries it seems to be true that a physician will often give his patient nothing but sound advice and the patient be sat isfield that the doctor has done his duty. Unfortunately should a physi cian here forget to add a prescdiption the chances are that the patient would see another more circumspect practi tioner. Of course a busy person or one of limited means will ever hope that a forced, often expensive, vacation may not be necessary and equally good re sults attained by a course of medical treatment. In America the over worked, mentally worn-out, nervously exhausted patients, and unfortunately their name is legion, need rest and recreation much more than iron, qui nine, strychnine or phosphates, and their needlessly exaggerated opinion of the value of these is one of the chief obstacles in the path of a doc tor who tries to help them. American Medicine. Clever London Cubby. A London "cabby", says that once two distinguished strangers hailed him at Westminster palace and bade him drive at top speed to Marlborough house. After a moment of recollection he recognized the Prince of Wales and his friend the King of Belgium. An awkward attempt at an obeisance frox the box was promptly rebuked. an:l the cabby settled down to his business of driving his royal guests as fast as a hansom may go in' London streets. They stopped at Marlborough housj and it was time to pay. 'Well driven, cabby," said the prices; "what do I owe you?" "Please, sir. I've already 'ad a sovereign and a 'art in the 'an some," replied cabby, bowing to ths price and the king of Belgium. "Here's for the king of Belgrum. then." said the prince, handing the driver a sov ereign; VI. don't count, you know." Doctor Said He Suffered From Fright And Terror, EVINCED ABJECT TERROR. Auburn. N. Y., Sept. 30. Czolgosz, President McKinley 's murderer, in the custody of Sheriff Caldwell of Erie county and twenty-one deputies arrived tn Auburn on time. Either for fear of the crowd, which was not very demon strative or from the sight of the prison Czolgosz legs gave out and two deputy sheriffs were compelled to practically carry the man into the prison. Inside the gate his condition became worse and be was dragged np the Stairs into the main hall. He was placed in sitting posture on the bench while the handcuffs were beiug removed but he fell over and moaned and groaned, evincing the most abject terror; As in the case of all prisoners the officers immediately proceeded to strip him and put on a new suit of clothes. During this operation Czolgosz cried and yell- "cd, making the prison corridors echo with evidence of his terror. The prison physician. Dr. John Geririj examined the man and declared that he was suf fering from fright and terror but said that he was shamming to some extent. The collapse of the murderer was a surprise to every one. Enroute from Buffalo he showed too indication of breaking down. He ate heartily and smoked cigars when not eating. He talked some and expressed regret for his crime. He reiterated his former statement that he had had no accom plices and declared that he never had heard of the man under arrest in St. Louis who claimed to have tied the handkerchief over his hand, Concealing the pistol with which the president Was shot. He says the handkerchief was not tied. He went behind the Temple of Music, arranged the hand kerchief so as to hide the weapon and then took his place in the crowd, Czolgosz was in normal condition in the afternoon and seemed to have fully recovered from his collapse. To guard against an attempt on Czolgosz's part to commit suicide, two more guards have been added, and one will con stantly sit in front of Czolgosz's cell and will have a key so that any attempt at self-destruction may be easily frus trated.

In the case of President Garfield congress appro priated in all $57,000 for doctors and funeral expenses. Of this amount $35, 500 was for the payment of the physi cians and 22,000 for the funeral expenses. The total expenses in th case of President McKinley will proba bly be fully as great, for although the bills of the physicians will not be so large as they were in the case of Gar field, who lingered for more than two months after he was shot, the expense of the funeral are expected to be larger. The principal item, as in the case of the Garfield funeral, will be for railway transportation. This will in clude the special train which brought the funeral party from Buffalo to Washington, the special train of three sections which caaried the party to Canton, and the special train of five sections back to Washington. Congress not only paid Presiden, Garfield's funeral : expenses, but alsc made liberal provisions for Mrs. Gar field. She was paid her husband's salary for the remainder of the year. was given a pension of 85.000 per yeat for the remainder of her life, and was given the franking privilege, by which she can use the mails without the pay ment of postage. Mrs. McKinley will certainly be treated with equal liber ality. Train Rolls Over. Omaha, Sept. 30.
