the ore almost cleared away when he put that

A D VOi' A T E S SPANK I N G.
Mrs. Lena Ruiz, a wife who believes in
spanking husbands to improve their j
health and tried the experiment tin her
own and was arrested, talked freely about
her theories to the Chicago correspondent 1
of the New York Journal. |
"Spanking," explained Mrs. Rutz, "is ;
the finest tonic known. There's my hus- j
j band, now. He's a miserable, lean little
■ man, and his appetite was something aw
ful—-or rather his lack of appetite. 1 tried
I cod-liver oil and a dozen other things. I
could have bought a lovely bonnet with
what I spent that way. Then I recollect
ed that when we were little ones at home
and wouldn't eat our meals—turn up our i
noses at the food, as mother said—she'd i
give us a spanking and we'd be glad to I
eat. So I tried it on my husband and it
worked like a charm. Ho got a splendid |
appetite. Then I got to spanking him
twice a day. once before he went to work
in the morning and again when he came
home at night.
"No, I don't think he liked It," said Mrs.
Rutz. musingly. "In fact, to be frank
with you. he objected strongly, but 1 was
firm. I recollected that when we were
children we always objected to a spank
ing, so I never paid any attention to his
protests. I'd just lay him over my knee,
and if I didn't have my slipper handy
I'd use the palm of my hand, or maybe a
book. Books are nice things to have
around the house, ain't they? They give
an air of refinement to a room, and if
■ they're well bound and not too heavy they
are very useful for spanking purposes.
I've got a nicely bound volume of Dr. j
Hillis' sermons,' which I found just
weighty enough. 1 used to use a volume
of Carlyle's at first, but he's pretty
heavy, you know, and I didn't want to be
brutal, so I went back to a medium
weight, like Hillis."

BEGGAR BOY.
New York Journal: From a piano on
the children's roof garden on the top
of the Gerry society's building there
came the strains of "Cavalleria Rusti
cana." Above the clanging of car bells
and the rumble of wagons wave on wave
of melody iloated down in to the street.
Men and women passing the corner of
Fourth avenue and Twenty-third street
stopped and listened. Seldom had they
heard Mascagni's opera played so well.
The execution was marvelous. It was
apparently the result of years of study
and practice in musical technique.
"Who is your musical visitor?" they
inquired 5f the Gerry agent at the desk.
"Oh, that's not a visitor," was the re
ply. "That is a prisoner, one of the in
mates. He is the boy who lived with
a crippled beggar on Chrystie street."
The boy's name is Charles Vincent. He
is 15 years old, and, when found by the
Gerry seciety, was learning the trade
of professional begging and crime.
The Gerry society received a letter last
Friday from a man who lived in a tene
ment house on Chyrstie street. The let
ter said that at No. 91 on thai street a
beggar kept two boys as prisoners. They
were locked up in the morning when he
smarted on his professional tours of men
dicancy tjmi were kept there until he re
turned at night.
At 1 o'clock on Saturday morning
Agent Pisarra, of the Gerry society,
gained admittance. Cowering in the
corner of the room on a heap of old rags
he saw a light-haired, blue-eyed boy,
in spite of his surroundings, still seemed j
to bear evidence of some good home that
he had left long ago. He was clad only
in an undershirt, a pair of ragged trous
ers and shoes that had no soles.
"How old are you?" asked Pisarra.
"The old man told me to say that 1 was
18, but as a ma. -er of fact 1 shall be only
16 on my next birthday."
Agent Pisarra took the boy to the Ger
ry society, and there little by little he
told his story. He had run away from
his home, he said, in Altoona, Penn.,
about a year ago, because his stepmother
had been unkind to him. His father
was a member of a well-known theatri
cal company that is now traveling
j through the country. The boy had been
| to Harrisburg and Philadelphia, and
j
j the season closed there he had gone to
i ij ve with the beggar in whose tenement
j he A "'» B e £"" d { 0 the police of Altoona con
j f irme d the boy's story. His stepmother
wired that she had not been cruel to him:
that he had run away c^ae. and

LITTLE MISTAKE.
New' York Tribune: It is always well
that the heads of the family know when
invitations are given by the sons and
daughters of the house and accepted by
their friends. In a certain large and
hospitable home on Staten Island, where
visitors are continually coming and go
ing. and the young people are at liberty
to give their own invitations, provided
i a certain number is not exceeded, an
j awkward incident happened to a shy
| young man in consequence or this latt
| tude allowed to the juniors of_ the estab
j lishment. The young man having le
j oeived and accepted a pressing inv a
j tion to stop at the aforesaid mans o
from Friday until Monday, started "ith
his bag on the boat designated. Seeing
his host and hostess (the fathei and
mother of his friend), with whom he had
but a slight acquaintance, he went over
j
to join them. To his embarrassment he
saw that they did not recognize him and
he was obliged to introduce himself.
"Oh, yes, Mr. Smith, of course," said
the woman, evidently cudgeling her
'How stupid of me! I remem
ber you'very well. And where are you
Mr. Smith? If it is anywhere
near us I hone you will come over and
see us. Jim is at home, you know, and
they will be delight

passed beyond the physician's help and
his life hung by a thread. During these
changing moods he said nothing regard
ing his reason for his action.
Caldwell's attempt was made on the
night of Tuesday, October 24, at the Wil
liams lodging house. A fellow' roomer,
becoming alarmed at the sounds he
heard in Caldwell's room, forced the
door. He found Caldwell, faint from the
loss of blood which was issuing from a
bullet wound in his left breast, busily
engaged in the effort to throw the burn
ing bedclothing from the window.
Caldwell informed him that he had
shot himself with tlie intention of com
mitting suicide, but declined to say' why.
A search was made for the revolver, but
it could not be found. An ambulance
was summoned and Caldwell was taken
to St. Paul's hospital.
Caldwell was a plumber and was an
employ'e of A. J. Walker.
Mr. Walker knows very little concern
ing him. A sister resides in Boston and
some relatives in Oregon.
The remains are at Richards' under
taking rooms.

Tobacco chewers appreciate tlie patent

Both in the northern and western
islands of Scotland the natives have some
i peculiar customs unfamiliar to the
dwellers of the main land. One of these,
known as the "marriage test is prac
ticed in the island of St. Kilda, where
the population barely exceeds a hundred.
The des re among the islanders to in
crease this number does not seem to be
exceptionally strong, and every man be
fore lie is deemed suitable for a husband
has to perform an evolution with no little
bodily risk. The St. Kildans are, of
course, adept clock climbers, and the as
pirant for matrimony is therefore sub
jected to the test of balancing himself
on one leg on a narrw ledge overhang
ing a precipice, bendiing his body at the
same time in order to hold the foot of
his oilier leg in his hands. If found
I lacking in courage the maiden with
j draws her betrothal, and should the man
j fall over the ledge it is presumed that,
in his case, he will be disqualified.
