The English salesman at the glove counter of the department store was a model of industry, politeness, skill. "You see," he said to a floorwalker, "it is such a pleasure, after the life of the London shops, to work in a repub lic, to work where you are treated like a man. "In my London shop I was treated like a thief. The df nen. every time I went In or out, fei. .ne all over with their hands. If they struck a big lump, such as two handkerchiefs, on me. their faces would lighten, and Td have to bring the lump out for Inspection. These doormen even had the right to make you strip. They used the right often If they disliked you. and In em barrassment you revealed to their cruel eyes your torn, cheap underwear, and so forth. "If you bought a new suit, you were an object if suspicion, and the house detective shadowed you. If you took a girl to the theater or a music hall, you'd find a house detective at your elbow, and for a month afterward you'd be stripped and searched every day or so. "All this, mind you. for about $6 a week!" Cincinnati Enquirer. PETTIS REID GETS PLACE Vice-President of Indiana Democratic Club.

Friends of Men Arrested in Reelfoot Rider Cases Await Trials. ORDER VS. LAWLESSNESS Union City,. Tenn., Dec, 14.-Clad In rough homespun, with ragged trousers tucked deep into cowskin boots, with straggling beards and huge slouch hats but always with the inevitable long barreled rifle or big pistol, in plain view, denzens of the Reelfoot district assembled here for the opening scene of the night riger trials. They are the friends and relatives of the men who are held under military guard over at the barracks. They Ig nore the townspeople, or glance at them with scowls. Silently and singly they wander through the streets or stand for hours outside the barracks, gazing curiously up at the windows of the room above in which their friends are held. They feel keenly this trouble, do 1 these rough, but simply grown-up chil dren of the Tennessee backwoods. They believe that they are being persecuted. The issue is clearly drawn. There is no misunderstanding. Both sides are face to face ready for the" struggle, neither asking or granting quarter. It is a finished fight between organized lawlessness and the forces of order.

The Kempaper Man's Plctare t tk Great Ra.alan General. McGahan was the correspondent whe first described to Europe the Bulga rian atrocities. What a brilliant crea ture he was, with his steel blue eyea his face as delicately chiseled at though It were of marble,' his lithe light frame and that suggestion of ab solute courage, iron resolve, under neath the almost feminine tininess of the features. He was one of the in timates of Scobeleff Indeed, the met were so attached to each other thai Scobeleff nearly always insisted thai McGahan should share his tent with him, and McGahan was in the tent of Scobeleff the night after the disas trous assault on Plevna. Scobelefl was, said McGahan, a wonderful pic ture of the horrors and terrors of war His face was black with powder, his uniform was in rags, and his sword was twisted like a corkscrew. It is evident from this description that Sco beleff took part with his own hand in some of the work of the day. Ther was a sequel, by the way, to this pie ture. I am not quite sure whethei McGahan published it, but be told 11 to me. Scobeleff was always a dandy Even in leading a charge he was dress ed with dandical precision. In th middle of the night McGahan wai woke up, and be saw Scobeleff dress ing himself with great care, putting on a new uniform and even perfuming his hair and clothes. And then came another transformation. Scobeleff, hig elaborate toilet finished, sat down on his bed and burst Into a shower ol tears and a tempest of sobs, thinking over all his poor men who had been so vainly sacrificed in the attempt to gain the fortress.
