THE EVENING STAB.
Just above yon sandy bar. As the day grows fainte r and dim mer, lonely, and lovely, a single star Lights the air with a dusky glimmer. I*to the ocean faint and far Falls the trail of its golden splendor. And the gleam of that single star Is ever refulgent, soft, and tender. Chrysaor rising out of the sea. Showed thus glorious and thus emu lous. Leaving the arms of Callirrhoe, Forever tender, soft and tremulous. Thus o’er the ocean faint and far Trained the gleam of his falchion brightly; I* It a God, or is it a star That entrancer, I gaze on nightly! —Longfellow. Rejected, Without Thanks The editor of the Whirligig Maga zine sat in his shirt sleeves smoking a short pipe. He heard a sound in the street below. The sound stvDoed in front of the office building, and the ed itor craned his neck out of the win dow to see where the sound came from. It came from a motor car. In the car was a large, handsome hat, appar ently covering a medium-sized, hand some woman, who looked familiar. Could it be possible, he thought, that ahe was coming here? Binks, his assistant, was in the out er office. Tii editor hurried out. “Binks, you know Van Olsen, the millionaire, who is negotiating for an interest in the Whirligig?” "Sure. He was in here the other day.” “You saw his daughter sitting in the car outside, didn’t you?” "Yes. i knew her by her pictures in the society papers." "Well, she is here again. She is coming up. She'll be in the office in a minute. What do you suppose she wants?” "Maybe,” replied Binks, "that she wants to buy a postage stamp; but I'll bet a red apple she’s got manu script to unload on you.” Belton, the editor, turned pale. “That's the way I sized it up, Binks,” lie said hurriedly. “She has literary IT CAME t BOM A MOIOB C.*B. aspirations—as they say. I happen to know that, and I suspect that she is going to use us as a medium to vent her thoughts.” Binks reflected. Belton was hurried ly putting on his outer clothes. "Well, let’s wait and see. Maybe It’s something we can use. She’s pretty well known to the public. That might carry her stuff —unless it was too rot ten,” he added. The front door opened. Belton hasti ly retired. The office boy came for ward. The lady advanced. She was a stun ning creature. ‘‘ls Mr. Belton in?" "Yes, ma’am.” "Can I see him, please? Say it is Miss Van Olsen.” The boy returned in a moment. "Won't you step in?” Belton rose as she entered his sanc tum. He couldn't very well refuse to see the daughter of one of their largest prospective stockholders. “Mr. Belton.” She held out a friend ly hand. "I am delighted to meet you. I hope I am not intruding?” “Not at all." "You know I sometimes write? I love it. I always wait for the mood. I get ;o much pleasure out of it— more than I can say. Could you look this over?” She drew forth a rather formidable looking envelope. “It is a story. I have had it type written. as you will see; I should like to have you use it in the Whirligig.” “Could you leave it?” he asked. “Oh ! Would it he too much trouble for you to glance it over now? I am dying to know what you think of it. It will not take long.” "Why, surely I can,” he replied with a smile. "We don't usually do it, you know, but I shall be only too glad in this instance. Only”—he paused, while a deprecatory smile came to his face— "would it matter if I read the story alone? You see, to read it in your presence ’’ "I understand perfectly." She smiled back. “I will sit down quietly outside.” • ***••• He picked up the manuscript. He scanned the first two or three pages like lightning. Then he reached for the telephcne. In a moment he was talking with the proprietor of the paper. “Miss Van Olsen is here with a story that she wants me to publish. Thought I'd better let you know it." “Is it good?” asked the proprietor. "Rotten.” "Can't you fix It up?" "No, sir. It's one of those non-flxable bind of stories.” “But it won't do to turn it back on her hands. She'll tell her f*her and he may back out.” "I don't see how we can use it.” "What difference does it make?” The idea that every one would real ize why the story was published didn’t please him at all. “They will think we are owned body and soul,” he called back. "No. sir! It can't be done. If we do it once we'li have to do It again. It's a poor story, and I wouldn't use It under any cir cumstances.” The proprietor was equally insistent "You must do It. old man; it's at a critical stage. Van Olsen Is coming around this afternoon to close up. This will be the deciding touch. I Insist upon your taking it." "Then I’ll resign.” said Belton. #*•••• “Awfully good of you to take this INVENTOR EDISON IN A TROLLEYLESS CAR. ■ IBZ PyPHsHHHM^I IHiOmas A c*3 h.is -e- s'trv*-*'C#'<e r ßaiten r The overhead electric wire, with its attendant trolley pole, and the un derground slot system of supplying current to electric cars, has been doomed by Thomas A. Edison, according to traction experts who witnessed a demon stration oi his new storage battery car at Orange, N. J. The aged inventor, who rode on the test car during a portion of the trip, was absolutely certain of it. The car, which was specially constructed for the new batteries, is twenty-four feet long and carries thirty passengers. One-half the weight of an ordinary car the same size, it rides on a single truck and is propelled by a straight drive. It is equipped with 210 cells arranged under the seats. Of these cells 200 are for propulsion and ten for lighting, with a total force of fifty horse power. Edison estimates the cost of driving the new car at 1 cent a mile. / trouble, Mr. Belton.” She looked at him nervously. “How was it?” Belton held the story in his hand as a sort of emphasis to his remarks. “Do you want to know the truth, or do you want me to tell you what your friends have been telling you?” he asked. “Oh, the truth, of course.” “Your story will not do.” “Oh! I am so sorry. What is the matter with it?” “Everything.” “Everything?" "Yes. It is amateurish; it is badly constructed; it has no climax; it Is hopelessly dull and uninteresting. You evidently have an idea in your head that you can write. Take it from me, Miss Van Olsen, that you can't. It isn’t in you.” Belton smiled reassuringly as he saw the girl’s face. “But don’t mind,” he added cheerily. “It really doesn’t matter, you know. If you had that sort of a—literary—tem- perament, the chances are that you would be impossible in other ways. I wouldn’t care." She got up. Her face was lighted with anger. "Don't add insult to Injury,” she said quietly. "I have never had any one talk to me this way before.” “Of course you haven’t,” replied Bel ton. “Nobody has dared to tell you the truth. You are angry now, but you'll get over it.” ******* A couple of hours later Belton, get ting back from his luncheon, saw a message on his desk asking him to step immediately into the office of the proprietor. The Van Olsen car was In front and he knew that the magnate was in the building. He knocked at the proprietor's door. “Come in.” Singerly, the proprietor, looked up. "Hello, Belton. This is Mr. Van Ol sen. Mr. Belton is our editor.” Van Olsen looked at Belton curious ly. He lighted a large cigar. "My daughter was in to see you.” "Yes, sir.” Van Olson turned to Singerly. "She brought in a story to this young man to-day and he turned her down,” he said. Singeriy leaned toward Belton. "You turi-.ed It down'” he said "What did you do that for? Didn’t 1 tell you to hold it?” "Yes, sir.” ”1 don't care what you do with this magazine,” he said. “You can fill it up with anything you like. But z long as I am editing It, you can’t publish a story like that just because you want to please somebody. You can get some body else to do it. Good day, sir,” he added to Van Olsen. “Wait a moment.” It was Van Olsen who spoke. He put his band on Belton’s shoul der. “Young man." he said, “I have been thinking about putting $50,000 into this concern. But before making an investment of this sort I always try to find out how the business is run. Your profits depend upon the way your magazine is edited So I sent my daughter around here with one of her stories. And I am going to put my money in. on the strength of your re jection. My little girl thinks she can write, and you not only have done her a great service in setting her right about it, but you have convinced me that you can't be bought." He turned to Singerly. "Have those papers made out, sir, and l it hand you a check—with the understanding that this young man Is to keep right on his job." Then to Belton: “Young man. won't you give me the pleasure of dining with us to-night at my house? My daughter wants to get even with you."—Life.

A trap tears it horribly. So the trapper catches it by the tongue. "The ermine Is fond of ice. The trapper smears heavy knives with grease and lays them here and there on the snow.

Sex Proportion. Statisticians agree that the popula tion of the world averages 109 women to every 100 tees, NOT TO BE MENDED. Charles Dickens once wrote to a friend, “I have distinguished myself in two respects lately. I took a young lady, unknown, down to dinner, aud talked to her about the Bishop of Dur ham’s nepotism in the matter of Mr. Cheese. I found she was Mrs. Cheese. And expatiated to the member for Marylebone, thinking, him to be an Irish member, on the contemptible character of the Marylebone constitu tion, and the Marylebone representa tive.” Two such mishaps in one evening were enough to reduce the most bril liant talker to the condition of the three inside passengers of a London bound coach, who beguiled the tedium of the .journey from Southampton b> discussing the demerits of William Coo bett, until one of the party went so far as to assert that the object of their denunciation was a domestic tyrant, given to beating his wife. Much to his dismay, the solitary woman passenger, who had hitherto sat a silent listener, remarked: “Pardon me, sir, a kinder husband and father never breathed; and I ougnt to know, for I am William obbett’s wife.” Mr. Giles of Virginia and Judge Duval of Maryland, members of Cou gress during Washington's administra tion, boarded at the house of a Mrs. Gibbon, whose daughters were well on in years, and remarkable for talkative ness. When Jefferson became President, Duval was Comptroller of the Treas ury, and Giles a Senator. Meeting ons day in Washington, they fell to chat ting over old times, and the Senator asked the Comptroller if he knew what had become of “that cackling old maid, Jer.ny Gibbon.” “She is Mrs. Duval, sir,” was the un expected reply. Giles did not attempt to. mend mat ters, as a certain Mr. Tubervilia un wisely did. Happening to observe to a fellow guest that the lady who had sat at his right hand at dinner was the ugliest woman he had ever beheld, the person addressed expressed his re gret that he should think his wife so ill-looking. “I have made a mistake," said the horrified Tuberville. “I meant the lady who sat on my left.” “Well, sir, she is my sister.” This brought the frank avowal: “It can't be helped, sir; for if what you say be true, I confess I never saw such an ugly family in the course of my life.” ANCIENT CHINESE PROVERBS. Choice Nukkcl* of Wisdom from Many Oriental Source*. If you have not enough influence with the judge to excuse your felony then saddle your ass quickly. The sandalmaker does not go abroad to find cocked eyes to straighten. A coat not paid for is always tight under the arms. Beware of the woman who bites her finger nails. She is possessed of a devil. Do not despise friendships. Even that of a beggar is better than none. You are suspicious of a dishonest man. even if he does offer you honest goods. Do not abuse a poor man. He may not always be poor, and the abused have a good memory. Do not stand behind the woman who is about to throw stones. If you are afraid of your wife, ex change clothes with her. When your wife is brawling run for the beehives. Your pile of straw is a thousand times bigger than its pile of ashes. Do not interfere with a dog gnaw ing a bone. It Is one of his few pleas ures in life, and. besides, he might bite you. Hay ropes do not bind a ship in a storm, and If your boat is ieaking sail close to shore. Before you kill the fowls scratching up your garden seeds be sure they are not your own. It makes a difference whose cat It is that yowls on the housetops. Too much wine crosses your feet. Do not saddle your ass backward. If he pitches you off you cannot see where you are falling. The fawning guest is a great eater. He who mimics the ways of his bet ters wears the clothes of a fool.

News of Wisconsin A Week’s Record of Slate Happenings TAKES LIFE WITH -WITCH CUBE" Daughter Drink* Potion When She I<ef lined to Wed. Pretty Mabel Clemens, lying in a critical condition at home, in Fond du Lac, charges her mother and brother with having forced her to take a poi sonous potion because she refused to marry a Greek named Peter Mansistis. The mother claims the potion was giv en the girl to rid her of a witchcraft spell. Physicians at Ripon are being sought by the authorities for giving the potion to the mother. According to the police the girl left her home be cause of being abused for her refusal to marry the Greek. She went to a neighbor’s to live, but her mother is said to have begged her to return.

Wild Children Mnke Brainy >len, Assert* Wlucoiihlh Professor. “To teach a ten-year-old boy to fight is sometimes the best solution of cer tain problems in connection with his education,” said Professor M. V. O'Shea, of the University of Wiscon sin, in a lecture on “Child Psycho logy.” “The kitten plays only because its ancestors hunted for a living,” con tinued the professor. “It goes through all the motions of stalking and catch ing an object, though the modern do mestic cat does not need to hunt for its food. So it is with the child. He loves dirt and fighting. He is a brute as far as his instincts go, and unless he is allowed to develop his savage instincts at an early age the finer in stincts which do not come till later will not develop to their best. The most esthetic and intellectual persons are those who in early life were the wildest children. Statistics prove it. Every home should provide for savage as well as civilized life.” JEW WINS SUNDAY CASE. Theatrical Mnaaaer Convinces Jnry That Saturday Is His Sabliath.

PLUNGE SIX STORIES. t Thlrty-Flv* Men In Elevator Talc* Terrible Fall. Thirty-five men dropped to what seemed certain death when the eleva tor at the Simmons Manufacturing Company’s plant in Kenosha fell from the sixth floor to the basement just after the whistle announced the close of the day’s work and the men had made a rush for the elevator. Eight of the occupants were badly injured and one or two may die, but that the majority escaped with their lives seems miraculous. The elevator is carried on a shaft and this broke, the fragment cutting up through the floor of the car as the latter plunged downward. The men who were not actually hurt sustained a nervous shock. Arthur Vanasbeck had both legs broken. Joseph Moloski had his spine so badly injured that his lower limbs are paralyzed. H. J.
