THE CHALICE OF TEARS..
Wm small hands bore a heavy cup Along the garden way; It was so brimmed with' tears, hs could Not set It down and play. Oh, come with nr his comrades cried; "Oh, come! The flowers are sweet, And other little angels wait The coming of our feet." - He slowly shook his drooping head. And said in piteous tone, "I cannot play; my mother weeps Because she is alone." Their gentle, loving eyes grew dim; They passed along the word From one to one, until at last A great white angel heard. And, soon commissioned, he took flight, Past clond and moon and star; Swiftly he winged his way to earth, Where griavoua troubles are. And In the midnight hour to one Whose cheek still bore a tear, . While breath came sobbingly, he caused A Tision to appear. She saw her baby, tired and sad, Hla fingers clasping tight Her cup of tears, which he had borne For many a day and night. "He cannot rest," the angel said, "Nor run along the way. He cannot smile till yon have smiled, And bade him sing and play. "Oh, haste!" she cried. "Oh, haste, and take From him that cup of tears. Let him be happy, and I'll bear Unwept my lonely years." , OWN in Alabama they tell 4. I strange story about a man who succeeded lu cheating the gallows by a clever ruse. As he lived a respect able life afterward, and some of his children are still living, bis real name Is not given. We will call him Dever enx. William Devereux was a rising youni lawyer of good family, married to an accomplished wife, and possessed a large number of admiring and devoted friends. Indeed, ho was one of those magnetic persons having the fortunate faculty of making strong and loyal friends of nearly all who came In con tact with him. But In the town where he lived then was considerable dissipation of a cer tain kind. Devereux became a member of a choice circle of card players. lie lost money of others with which he had been intrusted. For a long time be managed to keep his state of affairs concealed by. a sort of system of rob bing Peter to pay Paul, and to meet hla obligations as they matured. But a period came when William Devereux realized that these things could be con cealed no longer, and the day of ex posure and dlHjrrace came ever nearer. It was In the old-fashioned times when there were no railroads, no tele graph, no means of travel, save over ill kept roads, generally on horseback. It was before the day when drafts, bills of exchange and similar banking con vetnences for facilitating money trans fers had reached anything like modern perfection, and payments were made at a distance by sending the money Itself. It wasjlso the custom of theya.rion corjityr ts and " -caDR41. carrying" sucmnoliey as bad been col lected In their districts on behalf of the RtntA and ths TMVMaflrv nnnpni nnrl vouchers, and have an annual settle . ment'for tie year's receipts and dis bursements. Now, at the time when Devereux's Affairs were most desperate, his own county treasurer started out on horse back with the State money, a large sum. In a pair of saddlebags, to effect his annual accounting. On the road he was joined by a fellov traveler, who afterward was proved to be Devereux. They put up one night at a roadside tavern, occupying the same room. Next morning the treas urer was found'dead in bed, his throat cut from ear to ear. His companion had disappeared, and the saddlebags, with their contents, were also missing. The country side was aroused, bloodhounds were brought out. and a flerce chase of some hours resulted In Devereux being run down and captured. There was no question but th:it he had been the mur dered man's companion the night bo fore, but none of the missing money or papers were found upon him. These were the facts in the cast When the news passed from traveler to traveler aloug the country roads, and finally reached Devereux's home town, there was a tremendous sensation, fur- ther heightened when the damning cir cumstances of his busines.iaffalrs came to light and made clear the motive of the crime. . Nevertheless, many of his friends were still loyal, sironjr family Influ ence was exerted In his behalf, the best lawyers were employed, and every ef fort was made to free him from th? consequences of his awful crime. All without avalL He was trlod, found ' guilty and sentenced to be hanged. The higher courts deckli-d against him on appeal. The Governor refused to Inter fere, -and Dovereux occupied a ceil in the Jail at the little tuwn of St. Ste phens, closely guarded, within a few days of the date appointed for his exe- .' -,iltlrn with nil nms.ipct nf psc.qne "' seemingly cut off.

' To this officer the prisoner frequently jxpressed the firm belief that he would "not te hanged. He assured htm that, however, he had no Idea of escape, oth er than by some divine intervention, which would establish his Innocence and point out the guilty man. Not many days before' the one fata .lay tha sheriff found the prisoner vis ibly agitated, and In an excited state, r.oticeably different - from his usual . aimuess. In answer to the officer's ijuestion as to the reason, Devereui ;;ave the following explanation: "I have had," he said, "a most extra' rdlaary experience. It came to me last night In the form of a dream, so real, distinct and different from the nsnal hazy disuiess of ordinary visions that I believe 1$ to bejthe premonition of aa go ..... , eg I SAVfcD BY HIS WIFE. j 8a 1 rc3 actual event. -1 einnot rid niyself 01 this Impression.

' 4'Last night 1 dreamed I was stand irg 6a the scaffold f !ciag thousands o people. The scene was as real to me at I the actuality ibeif. I had spoken 1 'few words of fareweil ,aml was aboir to resign myself to your hands whet suddenly by the exercise of some new faculty of perception I saw the real murderer standing In the crowd befon me. I never saw him before, and yei I -knew him to be the man In whost stead I was about to suffer death. Hi was slight in build, with dark hair ant eyes and neatly dressed. Uls feature re Indelibly fixed In my mind. Wltl this recognition my dream faded away There was no further intimation as t my fate,' yet I foel indeed aa thougl God himself has spoken to me and re vealed the absolute assurance of IIli divine protection." The narrator's manner was so earn tat and impressive that a hope cprunj up responsive in the sheriff's mind that something might happen. He was men tally prepared and on the watch for th happening of the miraculous. The day of the execution was a bean tlful, clear, cool October d.iy. Thou sands of people were in attendance, and had gathered about the gallows. It wai to be a public banging ,and the multi tude availed Itself of the privilege ol seeing a human being choked to death As has been int'm ited, there was mucl feeling and sympathy for the doomed man, much argument as to the falliblll ty of circumstantial evidence, and 1 hundred vague rumors In circulatioi suggesting bis innocence. At last Devereux stood upon the gal lows platform and faced the people There was no man In all that crowd apparently so cool, collected, and s much the master of himself. He stepped forward to say a few words of fare well. Ills voice rang out in the still ness clear, distinct and perfectly audi ble to all. "Friends," be said, "this Is not a fir ting time to indulge In rain protesta Hons. I can but simply reaffirm that 1 am not guilty, kuowlng well whai would be the consequences of a false hood, standing, as I am, almost In th presence of my immortal God. I di sire especially to relieve any man front the possible thought that he may havi misjudged or wronged me, and might have to meet my aceurslng words be fote the great tribunal hereafter. I was a human error, the result; " At this moment the speaker gtppe short and leaned heavily upon the rail ing. His countenanre betrayed terri ble excitement. Ills eyes seemed fixed on some one In the crowd before bin: whom he Indicated, bound as he was, an well as be could. When be found bis voice he fairly shrieked: "There he Is! The man of my dream the murderer! Stop him! Stop him! lie had pointed out a slightly built almost feminine looking young man who uttered a hasty exclamation and attempted to get away, but before ht aould do so he was roughly seized and held by the crowd. The sheriff, almost beside himself with excitement, rushed down from the scaffold, followed bj half a dozen deputies. The young max was hurriedly searched there and thn Upon his person was foujid a-watCh, 1 pistol, and certain-papers of value, wet known to l!?"" n the property of th p,ir-'- " r. He seemed to giv -- via , answer to excited questions sullenly NtgKonoea "Well, It seems you have me. a fool to como here. I demand of tht officers protection-from this crowd." Protection was needed. Like quick silver, a knowlelge of the mattel seemed to have permeated the whoI multitude. An Innocent man was saved ard the guilty apprehended in the nlci of time. Cries of "Uaug the scoundrel r "Turn Devereux loose !" arose from al. s':d';s, while the officers struggled fierce ly to withstand the surge of the angrj mob. There was no knowing what niisbt have happened had not Dever eux's voice arrrsted the movement. "Let the law ta?;e its course," he said "For God's sake do not be too rah! 1 Implore you. as oue who has been sc near an lgn l!e death by reason of thil awful mistake, to let the sheriff takt this man. Give hira a fair trial, and may God forgive him for what he hai tried to do to hid." The words of no other man coult have Favcd the new prisoner. Thi crowd give way. The hanging of Dev ereitx was out of the question. Th populace would not have permitted it and the sheriff would any how have fel: jiistifli-d lu siwpei.dii g the execution. The mob poured up the gallows stairs md cut the ro;ies that bound Devereux. The jail officials hurried" the prisoner to the J .ill. ' Once there the latter made 1 full confession, which soon became :he talk of the streets. Nothing could be done that was too good for Dever !Uix. whj at first busied himself In I'otinseling moderation, and being satis Red of its accomplishment, simply isk"d for two things. He wanted to gc it once, he said, and bear the glad tid .!;: back to his wife. For this pur pose he requested the loan of a good jDrse and some tnor.ey, a request which was enthusiastically gratified. At sun-i-ft Devereux was miles away. In the moruipg the new prisoner ip ke to the sheriff when that officer was makii g the rouuds of the Jail. "I think now," he said, "you had bet ter let me go." This display of assurance caused the iheriff to think the prisoner crazy. "I mean what I say," he persisted, "ser.d a woman here, yonr wife. I am 1 woman. I am William Devereux's wife. My purpose d fulfilled. I have saved hif life and he Is now far away. Von can never catch him. He sent me word where I would find the things you found on me, and I used them to de ceive you." It was tme. Devereux's prison man acr, his talk, the dream, the denoue ment at the gallows, were all parts of a skillfully worked and successful plot. The chivalrous spirit of the time and runtry saved his wife from any pun ishment. Devereux went to California, changed his uame, was Joined by his faithful wife, prospered greatly, and l ed not many years ago, the leading ;itlzen of a thriving city that bore his false name.

The Cry of the Little Peoples. rhe cry of the little peoples went up to God In vain; The Cxech, and the Pole, and the Finn, and the Schleswlg Dane. We ask bnt a little portion of the green and ancient earth; Only to sow and sing and reap in the land of our birth. We ask not coaling stations, nor ports in the China seas, We leave to the big child nations such rivalries as these. We have learned the lesson of time, and we know three things of worth: Only to sow and sing and reap in the land of our birth. O leave us our little margins, waste eads of land and sea, A little grass and a hill or two and a shadowing tree; O leave us onr Uttle rivers that sweetly catch the sky. To drive our mills and to carry our wood and to ripple by. Once long ago, like you, with hollow pur suit of fame, We filled aU the shaking world with the sound of our name; But now we are glad to rest, our battles and boasting done, Qlad Just to sow and sing and reap In our share of the sua. And what sbaU you gain if you take Uw and bind ua and beat ua with thongs And drive ua to sing underground In a whisper our sad little songs? Forbid us the very nse of our heart's own nursery tongue Is this to be strong, you nations, la this to be strong? Your vulgar battles to fight, - and your shopmen conquests to keep. For this shall we break our hearts, for this shall our old men weep? What gain In the day of battle to the Kuss, to the German what gain. The Csech, and the Pole, and the Finn, and the Schleswlg Dane? rhe cry of the Uttle peoples goes up to God in vain. For the world Is given over to the cruel sons of Cain; The hand that would N bless us ts weak, and the hand that would break us is strong, lnd the power of pity is naught but the power of a song. The dreams that our fathers dreamed to day are laughter and dust, Vnd nothing at aU in the world Is left for a man to trust. Let us hope no more, or dream, or proph esy, or pray. For the iron world no lesa wiU crash on its iron way; And nothing Is left but .to ,watch, with a helpless pitying eye. The kind old alms for the world, and the kind old fashions die.

Rouen, one of the principal cities 01 Vance, and the great Beat of Its cot ton manufacture, possesses the oldest public clock In the world. The great Rouen clock has held Its place In that city for 510 years, and Is the pride of its citizens. Placed In 1389, It has been running without Interruption from that day to this, requiring nothing except cleaning and a few trifling repairs of its accessory parte. The great clock had so accustomed the citizens ol Rouen to look upon Its exactitude as s matter of course, that when. In 1572, the breaking of a wire prevented Its sounding Q o'clock one morning, the population was In a state of consterna tion. The magistrates summoned the custodian Gulllaume Petit and re monstrated gravely with him. Until 1712 the great clock bad no pendulum. For 323 yeans It had no other regulator than a "follot," an apparatus unknown to the majority of modern clockm&kera, The pendulum tn clockwork was Intro luced In 1659, but so well satisfied were the people of Rouen with the time keeping qualities of their famous old slock that fifty-three years were al lowed to pass before a pendulum was substituted fa? tie "follot" - Equipped with this new apparatus It has contin ued to this day to strike the hours and ? hi tne the quarters.

To close the openings In keyholes when not In use an Illinois man has patented a guard comprising a flat cas ing flanged on the under side, leaving tpace between It and the door for the insertion of a gravlty-actuatea piate, which drops down over the opening. Violins can be held In position with ut tiring the player by the use of a new rest, which Is formed of an inflate- Me pocket, with a button or hook afc tached to one corner, by which it can re fastened to a piece of cloth tucked In :he collar, the pad lying under the :oat Smokers will appreciate a new cigar jolder, which has a hollow centra aeedle to enter the tip of the cigar, with farce fingers arranged around the out- ilde of the holder and pivoted In such a position that the screwing In of the mouthpiece causes them to grip the cigar. By the use of a Michigan man's In dention an ordinary plow can be used ts a potato digger, holes being drilled in the rear of the share for the attach ment of a number of curved tines, which extend to the rear and sift the lirt as the plow turns a furrow througr the hills. To allow a trunk to stand close to the arall a new lid Is in two sections, hinged it the ends of the trunk to open and ihut In a plane parallel with Its face, with tllks hinged at the rear of each lid portion to swing toward the rear and rest on the back of the trunk when the lid Is open. An improved neckyoke for use on teavy trucks has tubular ends slotted Uong the sides and closed at the tips, with colled springs Inside, rings being let in the center of the springs to slide tn the slots wben the tongue gives s sudden twist, thus lessening the shock to the horses. Stalks and weeds are easily pulleu' from the ground by a Callfornlan's de vice, consisting of a pair of levers plv- ted togetbernnd mounted on a wheeled truck, with handles on the long ends oi the levers to grip the short ends on the weed, when the truck is tilted to llfi the weed from the ground. A Southerner has patented an im proved Are escape which has a broad strap for use as a seat and a narrow me to pass under the arms, both con necting with a reel which haa a crank at one end. a cord being wound on the reel to be attached to the window casing and unwound slowly to lower the user. A Plaat Detested by Animals. The castor oil plant is so universally detested by the whole of the animal world that no bird, beast or creeping thing will touch one. It seems to be a sank poison to all kinds of animals; even a goat will starve before biting off a leaf, and a horse wBl sniff at It and turn his upper Hp as if it bad the most detestable odor on the face of the earth. Army worms and the locust pass It by, though they will eat every other green thing tn sight, and there Is no surer way to drive moles away from a lawn than to plant a few cas tor beans here and there. Even the to bacco worm will refuse to be fed on Its leaves. No-To- Bae For Fifty Cants. men strong, blood pure. 60c, Jl. All druggists.

Curious but dangerous freaks of na ture frequently found in the deserts of Arizona are called Sumlderbs by the Mexicans and Indians. They are mask ed pitfalls of quicksand that occur In the dry plains and are covered with a treacherous crust of clay that has been spread over them in fine particles by the wind and baked dry by the sun. The peculiar properties of the soil re tain allwthe moisture drained Into thorn after the Infrequent rains and allow It to be filtered to unknown depths, so that a man or a horse or a cow or a sheep that -once steps npon that decep tive crust Instantly sinks out of sight beyond the hope of rescue. The Suml deros are on a level with the surface of the desert. There is no danger signal to mark them and their surface can not be distinguished by the ordinary eye from the hard clay that snironnds them. They occur most frequently in the alkali covered flats, and are often fifteen or twenty feet In diameter. Sometimes they are only little pockets or wells that a man can leap across, but the longest pole has never found their bottom. A stone thrown through the crust sinks to unknown depths, and no man who ever fell Into one of them was rescued. They account for the myste rious disappearance of many men and cattle. A strong-minded woman never has to borrow a penknife from a man. The man who is learning by his mis takes will be a busy student, and some day a wise one. Courage consists not in blindly over looking danger, but in seeing it, and conquering It. If you wish success in life make perseverance your bosom friend, expe rience vour wise counselor, caution your elder brother and hope your guar dian genius.
