New York. Passengers on the
amiably ambling, uuronmtic East riv

the thrills of mutiny on the high aeas
the other day, with four genuine muti
neers, 'with their eight homy lists and
their International vocabularies.
The mutinous quartet, who had
made life miserable for Captain Bou

ship's voyage fromNaples and landed
here In Irons In consequence, were on
their way to the office of the Fronch
consul In New York. Officer Vortro
of the ship had them in tow. It was

erstwhile mutineers, rather fancied
the role of Ben Gunn in such sur
roundings and at his behest the .others
accompanied Vortre willingly.
On the upper deck of the Bay Ridge
Conls puffed a cigarette in supreme
contentment. There were women and
children on the upper deck, and also
a sign which read: "No smoking."
Special Policeman Slawson saw M.

With Slawson, fighting desperately,
they struggled around the deck and
finally rolled down the stairs beg par

battle was continued. Passengers
Jumped from the path of the whirling

Brought Delos Brown and
Martha Gilmore Together.
NeVer having had any love affairs
of her own to occupy her time, Miss
Martha Brown very naturally turned
to those of others. And bo it camo
about that scarcely a viBit of Cupid
had occurred in Plalnville for years,
that she did not bring about, assist in,
or at the very least, predlctl
"Luella," Bhe called ono morning
to the niece whom she Tiad befriend
ed In her orphaned youth, "como and
cce who this Is moving into the old
Fleming cottage."
Luella obligingly left her dishwash
ing and came to peer over her aunt's
"Why, that," she said, -"must bo
Martha Gilmore. I heard yesterday
i he had bought the place of Dolos
Brown. I forgot to tell you, Aunt
Marlctte," apologetically.
"Quite a come-down, seems to mo,
for old Artomua GUmore's daughter,"
observed Miss Marietta crisply. "I
an remember -when he mother didn't
care to associate with Plalnville
"Oh, but Martha isn't that way a
bit, aunt," said Luella loyally. 'I feel
real sorry to think she has had to
give up her old home. And sho has
her old Aunt Martha to care for, too."
"Well, I can't Imagine what Delos
"Jrown is thinking of to sell that cot
1 age his mother's old homo! I sup
posed he had more feeling for her
memory. I shouldn't think he would
ivant to see -anyone clso living thore."
Miss Marlctte folded her hands as
was her custom when sitting In Judg
ment. "Why should he caro7" objected Lu--lla.
"He never saw his mother liv
ing at the cottage. It has stood empty
for years. I suppose it will seem
pleasant to have neighbors."
"And to such a brazen thing as
Martha Gilmore," pursued Miss
Urown, not to be interrupted.
Luella returned to her dishes with
out a word.
"When Aunt Marlette toas been
crossed nothing seems to please her,"
"So You've Sold the Cottage?"
she thought. "Everybody knows Mar
tha Is as nice a girl as ever lived."
"They needn't tell mo," Bald Miss
Marlette, left alone in the sitting
room, "that she hasn't set her cap
for-Delos Brown!" ,
This baphelor nephew, good look
ing, of excellent habits and possessing
a comfortable fortune, seemed to his
aunt a desirable husband for her
niece, Luella Lewis.
An hour later, therefore, as the
young man was busily training his
grape vlncsjiver a new trellis, he be
held bis caustic aunt hobbling up his
garden path. '
"So you've sold the cottage?" she
began without preamble.
"Yes. Thought I might as well get
it off my hands when I had a good
chance. It was no use to me except
what garden I worked."
"Well," said Aunt Marlotto shortly,
"If you had taken the troublo to ask
my opinion before doing it, you would
have saved a good many remarks!"
Delos Brown started uncomfortably.
His sensitive nature dreaded the
sharpness of village gossip. Perhaps
that fact accounted for his remaining
single despite his many virtues.
"Of course you must expect folks
to talk when a girl takes pains, to
settle under the very eaves of a desir
able bachelor'C house. Sho is a brazen
thing, but I wouldn't expect a man to
see it!"
Thojold lady glanced sharply at the
little gate standtng open In the line
fence, and sniffed disapprovingly as
tho betook herself homeward.
Martha Gilmore, standing amid the
clutter of packing boxps (n tbe forlorn
parlor, was trying desperately to
keep her tears back, With a quick
tap, Miss Brown entered.
"So, you've moved down town," sho
observed. "No, I can't .sit' down," she
observed. "No, f can't sit down,
tbank you. I Just came in to see how
you like It here. I must say ft Is sort
of a difficult placo tor a lone young
woman." Her eyes rested reflectively
upon her unconscious "nephew where
he worked in hlsjjarden.
Martha's cheeks- flamed suddenly,
"Maunt ls always' with me, Miss
Brown,"' shef said, coldly.
If there Is anything 1 -can do for
you I hope you will feel Jt liberty to
aBk." said Miss Mariutte. -KvoryDooy
has to have one such neighbor!"
Miss Marletto's eyes soon told her
that her scheme had worked admi
rably. The little gate in the Jlno tenco
was wired shut, and Martha never sat
on the pleasant little sduth porch
which faced Delos Brown's.
Martha Gllmoro, with hor broad hat
tied low over'her face, -worked every
day in the garden.
"I've got to raise something .for -winter,
or wo will havB to have help Irom
the town," she whispered over and
over, when her back ached and "her
head felt dizzy from lier mnaccus
tomed labor.
And her garden did -grow surpris
ingly. Early one morning Martha
went out to look at the plants which
meaut so much to her.
Heading hlo Industrious flock-among
her newly hoed rows was the strut
ting red rooster she had watched ner
neighbor place In his chicken yara
a few days before. All about lay her
tender young plants, torn and uproot
ed." "Oh, go away," cried Martha, help-
leBsly, waving her apron. "
"Why, Miss Gilmore!" Delos Brown
stood nghast at the havoc he had un
wittingly wrought. "I supposed I had
that park chicken-proof."
After much excitement they coaxed
and drove the flock back Into their
own territory.
"And now you must let me help yon
repair the damages," he declared, for
getting in her apparent distress his
fear of prying eyes and busy tongues.
To his astonishment, Delos found
the girl very quiet and attractive. She
know a lot about gardening, too, and
seemed eager to learn rooro.
"I declare," he murmured on his
lonely porch of an evening, "I declare
I can't see why she Is a brazen thing.
nB Aunt Marietto seems to think. I
guess that garden means a great deal
to her more than it ought to If
things were comfortable over there."
He began thinking anxiously about
the long winter. "The cottage needs
repairing to make it livable. I could
do It as well ob not without much
expense. And I always have more
wood from the farm than I can use.
I hope she hasn't heard any of Aunt
Marlette's foolish talk," be thought.
Through the dim twilight he could
see Martha moving about the little
"Guess I'll go over, anyway," he
said aloud, since Aunt Martha's
sharp eyes could not penetrate the
"I I came to Inquire about the gar
Sen," he said, ill at ease in her pres
ence. There was something fine in
Martha's manner, even in that hum
ble kitchen garden.
"Oh, it is better than it ever was
before, thanks to you, Mr. Brown. It
Is really fortunate for mo that my
neighbor's chickens got Into It!"
"But I can never quite replace It,
Miss Gilmore, and that Is why I
want to do something else for you to
even things up a little. The cottage
needs repairing before cold weather.
I can do it as well as not In fact, 1
ought to have done it before I let
you have it at all."
"Oh no!" cried Martha. "What
would MIbs Brown say?"
"So sho has been talking to your

known It. Oh, you poor little girl!"
Martha clasped her hands In the
darkness at the tenderness In his

with a sob.
"Not mind?" He took her trem

did not attempt to draw them away,
i "Do you know, Martha," ho said
very softly, "how a man feels about
the girl he loves? "He wants to prc

chewing gum to tbe pony. She said
she had been in the habit pf giving
Dandy six pieces of chewing gum
every morning for more than a year.
The surgeon ordered the chewing
stopped immediately. A mixture ot
meal and goat's milk was prescribed
for Dandy. Then he was led out to a
grassy spot beneath a huge pine tree.
Suspended from a stout limbs, about
seven feet from the ground, was a
heavy rope, to allow Dandy the free

John Mahoney Puts Stone-Age
Love-Making to Unsuccess
ful Test.
Chicago Suitor's Faith In Advlos of a
Scientist la 8haken by Exporlment
Tired of "I'll Bo a Sister to You"
Chicago. Stone-age love-making.
'with thumpB as marks of affection,
doesn't work out right, even though It
is advised by a scientific Chlcagoan.
John Mahoney tried it out, and he
"knows. John paid $50 for thumping
the woman he would take for bettor
or for worse. She Is now the "steady"
of another man.
Mahoney lives at 2013 Princeton ave
nue, and the other Sunday he arose
bright and early and went out on the
back porch to read the paper. There
ho read that Dr. William F. Waugh,
dean of Bennett Medical collego and
chief physician of Jefferson Pa'rk hos
pital, advised rough tactics in tho win
ning of a woman's love.
"When she arouBes your Jealousy
beat ber. She expects such treat
ment," read Mahoney.
"Hurray 1" he cried. "Here's the pre
scription. Just what I want."
Then he read further. It was some
thing like this:
"There Is a constantly thickening
coat of the varnish of civilization over
man and woman, but underneath they
are lndentlcal with the cave man and
cave woman. The human being is un
changed at heart. Stone-age maxims
still rule." '
Then John scratched his head and
thought. Ho figured It all out that
Julia Chemeleske, 3231 Albany ave
nue, his sweetheart for three years,
had slipped him the "I'll be a sister
to you" chatter and was keeping com
pany with another man.
John waited uiitil evening and then
strolled down Halsted street 8ure
enough, there was Julia, eating Ice
cream with a girl friend and probably
waiting for the more luqky man. Ma
honey waited until they left the Ice
cream parlor, then followed. The girls

Age Love,
separated and Julia started for home.
Near Halsted and Thirty-fifth streets
there is a real dark alley and Mahoney
decided to administer the first dose
ot the stone-age love potion there.
Miss Chemeleske displayed a phy
sician's certificate In court showing
she nad been brutally choked and'
beaten. Municipal Judge Hopkins, at
the Thirty-fifth street" court, severely
reprimanded Mahoney and fined him
$50 and costs. The girl likewise
spurned his appealing glances.

no account," groaned Mahoney as he
was led from the courtroom.
