During nil his life he had -nr Varvv- uwu aoown to "tT3" 3r form but one Si?"-- strong friend' ship, and that was for his only brother, who, in tho other years, bad helped him to pros pect in the coal mines his brother Jrffrtha. This Jeptha, unfortunately fo: himself, had become a misanthrope. He had loved and had been Jilted; and last when his prospects of success with bis brother Absalom bad been bright ening, he had thrown up all his busi ness, and gone to far-off parts to parts so far away that not a word bad been heard of him from that time. And Absalom Bogle died. Be deport' ed this mundane life on the fourth day of December, nt noon. When bis will was opened, which event transpired lri the presence of many relatives, its pro visions were found to be very simple First, he beqneathed everything of which he might die possessed to bis fondly remembered and well-beloved brother, Jeptha. But In case said Jeptba did not present himself and claim the benefit within one year from the death of the testator, then the prop erty was to be divided among bis other relatives according to tbelr rank of kin. Only ia one direction, setting aside his brother Jeptha, did the tide of rela tionship to Absalom Bogle flow. There were no nephews nor nieces, no uncles, nor aunts, but only cousins. There were two first cousins, four or Ave sec ond cousins, several third and fourth eoasfns, and so on, in Increasing ratio, as they were farther and farther r moved. aU 1 J' I I VrrMTIfm JVC Ultfnev Spoon er, Esq., waJ-j, ilJjf,Pn'! Ji"Jt?'beroIlowed a com- Spooner had been his legal adviser and business agent, and before his death be had Invested the faithful attorney with full executive power over the property and had exaoted In return no sign of a bond. After Absalom Bogle's demise, vrlti. the world at large the months rolled on aa usual, but with the cousIds, near and far, of the dead and gone testator, they brought with them wearing anx iety and suspense of the most harrow ing kmd. The winter passed, and the springtime came; but the expectant cousins could do little work. They were driving hither and thither to see If any Intelligence of Jeptha Bogle had j Deen, or was liiteiy to oe, or could by any possible chance be, discovered. Spring passed, and tbe summer came; and as the Bogle heirs had sowed but little In the spring, save hopes of Ab salom's money, they bad little else to cultivate in the summer. Tbe summer passed and the autumn came, and the host of cousins, who bad cultivated only hopes of golden heir ship during the season of fructification, found nothing else to garner In the sea ton of the sere tind yellow leaf. When the frosts of October had be gun to trace tbelr delicate penciling upon tbe crisp foliage Mr. Spooner sent his clerk around among the relatives of Absalom Bogle to bid them prepare for presenting their claims at the ap pointed time. If the long-absent broth er did not show himself on or before noon of the fourth of tbe coming De cember the property would be theirs. This clerk of Mr. Spooner was a quaint old fellow, answering to the name of Jededlah Sprout. He never hesitated to acknowledge that tbe. at torney had taken him In out of charity, and In his humble way he sought to serve bis patron faithfully. But the most wonderful thing about Jededlah Sprout was that be claimed to be a near relative of Absalom Bogle near er by far than any other living. He claimed descent from a brother of Ab saloman elder brother, much older than either Absalom or Jeptha who had died in South America many years ago. Tbe cousins looked up the family history, and found that the ancient brother in question had been one Solo mon Bogle, a wild, wayward fellow, who, under a cloud, had changed his uui to Sprout, and who had left no rscord of buvlug evtr iiunnJ. dlah acknowledged that the said Suk nion had never married, and yet be ha., the hardihood to claim to be. bis son. Could anything be mere Impudent The cousin, from the first to the sir teenth remove, held up their hands 1. holy horror. That a man. In possemlci of hit senses, should unbtosblngiy ac knowledge such shame! And, above al that, from such a slough of lgnemln; he should thrust himself tato relation ship with honest people! And yet Jededlah Sprout werked ! uis bumble station for Mr. Spooner. II visited the-cousins with his instruc tions from his patron, and to each hi toarfofly presented his own claim. "I ask not for a prime share of t. wealth of my father's relative," lr said. "I am very poor, and a mere pit tance will serve mel Let me share with the "Very least." But they scouted and leerwl. artJ would not listen. They received th legal Instruct loos which he brought from tbe attorney, and then kicked blm oat. Ih a neighboring town Hved Kat; ftthTthrop. She bad been Kate Wetber dmj bat duzinf tho very last Bommer, while other rousing bad been cultlva: lug their golden expectations, she ha. married Jack Wluthrop. and had Ml tied down In a snug, quiet home, peace ful and happy. Her husband worker bard for a living, and she helped him: and she was grateful and glad that sht bad strength so to do. Jcdedlah Sprout bad called npm. Kate and presented the attorney's in structlons. "Come In come in, and rest," said Kate, In her winsome, cheery way, "Come in and stop for dinner; but don't jay anything about the Bogle property. I don't care to hear It." ."But," urged Jededlah. "yon are i relative!" "My mother was a cousin, some fou or five times removed," answered Kate; "but I found no claim upon that circumstance. My poor pittance wouldn't be worth the wrangling and tangling I should bave to endure: and, moreover. Jack and myself have con- eluded that we had better paddle our own canoe. By and by Jack came tn, and to bin. Jededlah presented the subject. But Jack was as emphatic as his pretty wife had been. He didn't cure to mix In the feverish, scrambling mesa. "But," said be, "I'll tell you what will de, Mr. Sprout. I have heard your story, and In all honor and humanity I think your clilms are just If you can not get the share of Absalom Bogle's property to which you are morally en titled, you are welcome to all you can get apart In the name of say wife. How Is that. Kate?" "I agree, with all my heart," cried Kate. The rich moisture In Jededlah'a eyes gave token of the feelings which he did not speak. He sat down and ate dinner with tbe happy young couple, and said no more upon the subject of business. The weeks rolled on, and tbe morning of the 4th of December at length arriv ed. In the great, eld, shambling bouse. which had been vacant since the day of Absalom Bogle's funeral, an aaxieus crew were assembled. On that very morolng Jack and KaU Wlnthrop had been visited by Mr. Spooner, who had asked their attend ance on tbe coming occasion. They bad replied to blm that thoy had bo in terest In tbe matter. "But," said Mr. Spoon er, "Jededlah Sprout tells me that you will give your share to him." "If be can get It." added Jack. "If he Is to get It at all," said the at torney, "It will be necessary that you and your wife should be there to re linquish it." "On your honor, Mr. Spooner, do you think our presence would help poor Jedediah Sprout?" asked Kate. The attorney replied that be thought It wonld. "Then," aaid Kate, "we will go. What say you. Jack?" Jack consented, and so It transpired chat Kate Wlnthrop and her husband were present at the eventful meeting. The cousins of closer degree scowled upon them when they entered, and one wheezy old spinster Informed them that it would bave looked better if they had remained away. Not nearer than tbe sixth or eighth remove, at best," put In an ancient maiden of ascetic aspect. "Ugh! the assurance of some folks." The hours slipped on, and tbe Import ant meridian was close at band. AH bad assured themselves that Jeptha Bogle was not In tbe land of the liv ing. At all events he bad not been registers of all Kiiiuu were at hand, and It was very evident that not a few of them had been recently altered and amended. Crimination and recrimina tion resulted, and a belligerent out burst was on the tapis when the clock struck twelve, and with tbe last stroke of the fateful bell Mr. Spooner ap peared upon tbe scene, and with him came the man called Jedediah Sprout. "Toadies a ml gentlemen and very good friends," said the attorney, with a for mal bow, "I have the pleasure of Intro ducing to you your very obedient and luimble cousin, Jeptha Bogle! He bid? you welcome to his mansion, ami begs that you will honor him ' with your company to aioner. - "Bogle!" cried spinster No. 1, start ing up. "What Bogle 7" "It's a base deception!" exclaimed the ancient maiden of ascetic visage. "Who Is Jeptha Bogle?" demanded a low-browed hnlK-rdasher, upsetting his chair as he arose, and coming very near to upsetting a wizen-faced old bachelor who sat next to him. "I am Jeptha Bogle," said the attor ney's companion. He now appeared in a suit of black velvet, and looked tike a very kind-hearted gentleman. "I am the only brother of the Absalom Bogle who died one year ago In this house. I came on from South America six months ago, 'and made myself known to Mr. Spooner. I told him I bad no use for all tbe money my brother had left, and that I was willing to di vide the greater part of It with my rel atives. Mr. Spooner applauded my tro tlve, but advised me to examine for myself, and select the worthy ones. So I called myself Sprout and went at the work. As you would have done unto Jedediah Sprout, I give you full per mission to do unto yourselves. Dinner will be ready In half an hour; but you will excuse me from sitting at table with you, ns I am engaged elsewhere Jack and Kate Wlnthrop will come with me. As they were not of tbe heirs expectant, their presence In this assem bly is no longer necessary." From astonishment to Indignation and from Indignation to boiling wrath, surged the cousins of. all degrees; and in such wrathful mood tbey found no appetite for dinner; and, one by one, or In muttering, cursing pairs, they crawled away, Invoking all sorts of maledictions upon the head of the re turned brother who had so deceived and entrapped them, as well as upon tbe beads of the young couple, who, they were very sure, were to bask In the sunshine of Jeptha Bogle's good In tent. And In this last surmise tbey wen not mistaken. Old Jeptha found a home with Jack and Kate, and he did not wait until death bad cut short his share of the enjoyment before giving to them of the wealth be had resolved should be theirs.

Cincin nati Enquirer. Wonderful oapBnhrles Very wonderful as well as very beau tiful possibilities lurk in the basin of oapy water and the clny pipe, when skillfully manipulated by such "A Soap-Bubble Magician" as Meredith Nugent writes about In the St. Nicho las: "See that white rose?" Philip ex claimed, pointing to a beautiful one resting upon a lacquered trap. "Well, I am going to put it inside a soap-bubble;" and In a very few moments the flower was sphered over by a bubble so large and perfect that It seemed as if made of the purest glass. Following this, Philip set tbe hum mlng top to spinning, and amazed his audience by placing a bubble over that also. While tbe top still 'hummed un der its many-hued canopy, Philip blew another bubble, and called tbe atten tion of those present to the fact that an old adage said that a bubble would 'jurat as soon as pricked. "But here is a case," he exclalmeo. triumphantly, "where this old adage, like fc5 many others, is proved to be false." He then dropped a pen through th film; then he dropped another pes through; then a small key; then a larger key; then two nails, and con cluded the remarkable exhibition by pouring some soapy water through, after which the bubble broke. The unusually long duration of the bubbles was due also, as Philip ex plained, to tbe low temperature of the room. As soon as the little ones were nssembled In a colder room, dressed as if for slelcrh ride. Phil blew a bubble very carefully upon a small looking glass. At tbe expiration of thirty sec onds Its brilliancy was seen to be gren.tly diminished, and by tbe time fif ty seconds had elapsed all transpar ncy had gone. "There," cried Phil, "is a soap-bubble that will last a year, provided the room Is kept cold enough, for that soap-bub ble Is frozen." This performance so delighted tbe children that Phil covered the glass with a whole array of frozen bubbles; t- k.:it.e with n pL'iu-1 1 ..;il the light pieces of lee, wh r;t r like tissue paper, all about tuv ' daoatlon Had Been Nast'acted.

They should bear In mind that the language of this coun try la Spanish; that the people are In a great measure of tbe Spanish race, and hare Its customs and characteris tics; that while tbere Is complete re ligious liberty, tbe Catholic Church Is that of tbe state. Tbey should also reflect that the social observances of the country are different from those f the English-speaking races. Coming to particulars, it may be stated that no mechanic who Is not an expert or s specialist Jn certain occupations should come here hoping to better his condition, for the very simple reason that the country is already overran by workmen from southern Europe, who are content to work for lower wages than any British or American mechan ic would care to accept. Italy can easily outbid America or Britain fat most departments of labor; and, as a matter of fact, the operatives and man ufacturers here are either Italians or Frenchmen, principally the former. This remark applies to all varieties of mechanical labor, with the except! on of specialties, such as electrical engi neering; but In this field there Is al ready a congestion In this republic We would strongly advise English and American mechanics not to think of coming here to improve tbelr condition. The same advice applies to manufac turers of all sorts. Not only Is there a full supply, but tbe market Is over stocked with products of native manu facture, for the most part of a very In ferior kind. With regard to agriculture, our dis couraging advice would be emphasis ed. Tbe farmer here Is the Italian or the Basque, who can live In a manner to which English-speaking people are not accustomed, and will work for wages which these would consider suf ficient only to escape starvation. At tbe moment we write there are hun dreds of men now seeking employment who would be glad to work for $2 a lay of the money of this country which is equal to about 90 cents s-merican currency) and board theni- elvee; and this In face of tbe fact that Ae cost of living is greater here than tn New Tork or London. Those who save capital to lend on mortgage or who can Invest In real estate can safely get twice as much Interest or Income is In England or America. Those who have a small capital, say $5,000 or $10,000, and are ready to go to tbe frontier to live a rough life forbears, where they will never heap tlielr native tongue, where they ,wllf certainly suf fer from homesickness, where the conditions of life to English people are nearly on bearable such persons In the coarse of. tlnj wCi come out with more dollars. If they come ont at all, than they would amass at home. Tbe climate In this country Is magnificent; no place In the world can surpass It in that respect. It Is essentially a white man's climate. Stock graze in tbe open all winter, even In the coldest localities. The country has a great future, but no man In his senses would take the re sponsibility of advising English people to Immigrate or to come except with caplttl, as we have already stated. True, many have come individually and have done well, but every attempt to establish a colony of English-speaking people has proved a miserable falk are. i BLACK BELTS AT THE SOUTH. Pacts Aboirt tba Distribution of the Nssro Population. A considerable number of the dis tricts of the South contain a black pop ulation exceeding 00 per cent, of the entire population. These districts are found from Richmond to Raleigh and tn two-thirds of South Carolina and In a ..wide belt extending from Augusta, Ua., southwesterly to the Alabama line and across Alabama In a belt that Includes Tuskegee, Montgomery, Sol um and Demopolls and along both banks of the Mississippi River from tbe delta to Memphis and In the Shreveport section of Louisiana and in the Houston neighborhood of Texas. In about one-third of Alabama tbe pro portion of negro population, however, is below 17 per cent. In tbe districts most densely popu lated byegroes tbere are twenty-flve or more to the square mile, while there are many large districts In this State In which tbere are not over eight ne groes to the square mile. Tbe two largest areas heavily peopled with ne groes are found In South Carolina and along the lower Mississippi River. These facts are brought out in the plates that accompany Dr. Curry's re port upon the Slater fund. He dis cusses at considerable length the con gestion that exists In tbe districts mentioned. He does not consider either the diffusion theory or the deportation theory practicable. There is no need far other plans, he goes on to say. "This unsettled question," he adds, "acquiring more seriousness and dan ger with each year's delay, wider and deeper than any new or minor event or Incident, demands the co-operation of churches, statesmen and people, for It will, when rightly met and settled.

Iktwa Hie Wife How to Oat Oat of Town In a Ban .With nervous haste Mr. Bobbleton rushed Into his flat where his wife was giving the dinner a finishing touch. "Well, Mary, my. vacation has come at last and we are going to start to morrow morning for the country. I bought the tickets on the way home, and here they are!" Bobbleton flourished two long green slips of paper, and marked at the end, "Good for thirty days." "The baggage expressman will be here at 6 o'clock In the morning for the trunks," said Bobbleton. "I'll pack my trunk right after dinner. It won't take me over an hour." Immediately after dinner Mr. Bobble ton went tnto bis room. For the next hour or two Mrs. Bobbieton beard him slamming around, upsetting things, snd muttering to himself. "I wonder how Henry Is getting along?" thonght Mrs. Bobbleton. Yet she did not dare go Into his room. for there are times when Mr. Bobbleton becomes highly Irascible . and conse quently dangerous to approach. About half-past 0 Mr. Bobbleton emerged from his room very hot, but still tri umphant. - "That's tbe way to do," he said. "Pack up In a hurry without any fuss and feathers. Why, I could get ready to go to Europe just as easily! You women, (kn'-t-tctrw bow to do Bh ngl My trunk's all ready to go." "So Is my trunk,1! said Mrs. Bobble ton quietly, as she banged down the lid and snapped the lock. . Early the next morning the express men were on band for ths trunks. "Hawkins, the baggage master. Is a particular friend of mine," Bobbleton explained to the expressmen. "Just tell him to check these trunks to Dalsytown and to hold the checks until I reach the station. I want the trunks to go out on that 7:55 train. We fol low on the 8:40." , When the expressmen had departed Mr. Bobbleton turned back Into his flat and about an hour later Mrs. Bobble ton heard her husband storming around his room. "I wonder what's the matter now7" she thought. - Just then Bobbleton came out of his room very red and angry. "What's the matter?" asked Mrs. Bobbleton. "Have yon seen my blue serge vest7" "No, I have not." "Well, I can't And It anywhere. It had two weeks' salary and the railroad tickets to It!" "You mislaid it in your room." "Mislaid nothing.

Tbe tickets are no good to us now. I'll bave to get them re deemed, I suppose. If we ever get them back again." Mr. Bobbleton jammed his hat on bit head and went out. In twenty minutes he was back again. "I borrowed $20 from Fillets, the corner druggist Let's get out of here." "I'm awfully sorry you packed up that vest, Henry," said Mrs. Bobble ton timidly.

"Never." says the Philadelphia In qulrer, "was the value of cleanliness more strikingly exemplified than In the success which has rewarded the efforts of Benjamin Franklin Keith. No pro vider of theatrical amusements has done so much, no other man in the business has been so powerful in ele vating the stage in general. He has demonstrated that the good In theat ricals Is not always the most enjoyable, but the most remunerative. He has revolutionised the branch of the busi ness to which tils houses are devoted. Sixteen years ago the variety theatre was Bhunned by women; to-day wo men and children constitute 60 per cent, of the patronage of his Philadel phia House. His motto has doubtless ever been: give the people more than tbey expect for the money exacted. Those who have watched his career have been im pressed by the unremitting progress.
