X want to read yo:i a little sermon on the career and death of the late trae tion magnate,. Charles T. Yerkes. Be died at a fashionable hotel In Mew York, and while his body was till warm it was bustled Into a big wicker basket and to a freight elevator to get It out of the way His wife refused to see him on his deathbed His son and daughter were stranged from him. No one but the anirse was with him when be died. Ha was worth in money many mil- liana. .When Yerkes died the cafes and ro tundas of the Waldorf-Astoria were crowded with gay parties. The guests mutt not be shocked. What to do? The porters hastily filled a big laundry basket with soiled linen. Yerkes' body was dumped In add stealthily dragged to the elevator. It was thus trans ferred to a back sample room to await the undertaker's wagon. So The funeral bier of this multimilllon- v'aire, art critic and connoisseur was a I laundry basket, be had for a shroud soiled linen, and his temporary sepul cber was a damping room for refuse, Afterward, of course, the body lay In ttate in the Fifth avenue palace whence he had tried to drive his wife. Nobody but the reporters and curiosity , seekers came. Neither wife nor child nor rela tlve was in the funeral : procession, ' consisting of four cabs. Yerkes divorced the wife who had atood by him in the day of his trial He married his stenographer, lured by "hie desire for sensual beauty. Fas ctoated by a tr.trd woman, be was suing the second wife for a divorce at the time of his death. He was a man of dominant power. crafty intellect, a cold heart and an esthetic taste. Now The old book says, "Whatever a man aowetti that also shall he reap," and it he '"sows to the flesh he shall of the flesh reap corruption." Yerkes sowed to the flesh. He got what he bargained for. It is idle to ask if such a man found happiness. Yerkes sold himself to the devil for the sake of power, place, pic tures, passion. The devil does not pay la terms of human happiness. In the realm of happiness his currency is but counterfeit. You cannot walk to happiness, my brethren, by stepping on broken hearts and gold dollars. THAID Of A MILLION DOLLARS. A Chicago newspaper tells the story of a family heir to $1,000,000 that best tates te take the money for fear it may Interfere with future happiness. "Quixotic," some people would call It. This Urge heritage comes to Emil Afcher, a retailer in gloves, who has a wife and eight children. The family Ifves contentedly in a cozy flat The children are all married excepting the youngest. The money comes from an uncle In Germany. But falling heirs to a million does not seem to have given these people the thrill supposed to come to the very fortunate in these commercial times. They are actually afraid of the money. In an Interview Mrs. Ascher says: "I appose we must take the money. But I can tell yon I. want nothing but my husband and children. We are very happy. I am afraid of a future with ouch money, and so Is my husband. Continuing, the good woman says "We are not rich. We have simply enough to eat and a fairly good place to live. All the money In the world could not make us more satisfied. It is not money that makes people happy. It Is living a good life." "What we will do with all this money,' aid the husband, "I cannot tell. We will take a trip to Germany, my wife and I. We will probably give half the money to hospitals and old people's homes and then divide the rest be tween mother and the children." It ls safe to say that million will not magnetise other millions In the hands of Mr. and Mrs. Ascher. There are those who would mortgage their hope of salvation for $1,000,000 and permit the mortgage to be fore closed. These will sneer at the sug gestion that any one should fear the effect of much money on future happl- ness. "i And yet . There are great possibilities of evil as well as of good in the use of a mil lion. Improperly directed. It might emsUy disrupt the genuine happiness of a little fireside. , It might easily bring family strife and heartburnings and much misery.

Never was there so pleasure loving and so easy going a court, and seldom has there been one which was exter nally so splendid. The emperor spent money like water and thereby produc ed a prosperity for the time and with it popularity for the government Hundreds of millions were lavished upon Paris, much of it being wasted, yet none the less with the result that the cty really deserved its title la Tille lumiere. - In these days it lias gone to seed and grown shabby, but in 1869 everything seemed fresh and a i -in:--.. mnnann.

Norma" Was Hissed at First Tha Composer's Death. Bellini was born in Sicily. He died at Puteaux, near Paris, under some- what strange circumstances, in xoao. earon Ayme a-Aquno wrotetoaxneuu; "I rode out to cau on mm; Dut, asusu- ai, ine garaener 01 nis nouse rauseu i to let me in. Later on in the day there was a heavy storm, and at about 5 o'clock I once again tried to see him. As no one answered the bell I pushed against the gate, and it gave way, so I got Into the house. I found Bellini on a bed, abandoned ny an. At nrst 1 thought that he was asleep. When I touched his hand, it was quite cold, for he was dead." A curious letter is published, written by him when his "Norma" was hissed at the first representation: "I have just returned from the Scala. Would you believe it? 'Norma' was hissed. I no longer recognized the friendly Milan ese, who received with enthusiasm and delight the 'II Pirata,' La Straniera,' 'La Sonnambula.'

According to all accounts, the Cam eron highlanders militia are a fine body of men physically. Not long ago four of them occupied the least crowd ed seat in a full compartment on a Scotland railway. Just as the train was moving off a diminutive little cler- gyman jumped into the compartment and tried to edge himself in betvreen two of the highlanders. Not finding It very comfortable, he turned to the one on his right and said: "Sit up, please.

"When I was a boy," id a doctor, "I didn't believe in drafts. I thought that they who imputed colds to drafts were cranks. But one November night at a concert I felt all the even ing a strong draft on the back of my neck. It was so strong it resembled a suction pump. 'Now, said I to my- self, 'we'll see If this draft will give yours truly a cold. " He shuddered. "For a week," he said, "I was laid up with so vile a cold that I couldn't breathe save with my mouth open. And now I am satisfied that nine out of every ten colds are solely due to a draft on the back of the neck. "I know how to prevent such colds. Hence I may practically say that I know how to prevent all colds. It is a fact that none of my patients, thanks to my method, know what a cold ls.

The caucus, which was a harmon ious one, and' continued for about three hours, was attended by all the democratic members of the house save WTarren N. Hauck of Lawrence- burg, who ls suffering from a broken leg. The speakership race, chief in in terest,, was generally conceded to Mr. Honan and the belief he- would win became stronger when Representative Behymer announced his withdrawal. His supporters, while not considered numerous, went to the Seymour man. Representative Garrard, upon the vote being announced, moved to make unanimous the election of Mr. Honan. The caucus did not elect either a floor leader or a caucus chairman. The former position probably will go , . . .JT ' . ,T to Mr. Garrard and the latter to Har ry Strickland, who presided. A resolution was passed which will place a senator in the chair when joint sessions are held. Senator Stot- senberg will be chosen.

It seems too much cannot be 'said about this remedy In its par ticular line for it must be understood it does not cure everything. It does cure Rheumatism, Lumbago, Sciatica, Neuralgia, Gout and Kidney, Liver, Bladder, Stomach and Blood troubles caused by Uric Acid, for it atacks the cause, removes it and stops its for mation.

Swallowed the Objection. . A cannibal chief became converted and asked the missionary to admit him to the church. "But you have more than one wife," objected the missionary. "My church does not allow that." The chief departed In dejection, but returned again in a few days and an nounced, with evident satisfaction, that he now had only one wife and waa ready for baptism. "But" objected the clergyman doubt fully, "where are your other wives?" "Oh," replied the convert, "I have eaten them!" On the Safe Side. The "colored lady" who entered serv ice as cook gave her name as Juletta Price, but constantly referred to her husband as George Ledbetter. "How does It happen. Juletta." she was asked one day, "that you go by the name of Price, while your husband's name ls Ledbetter?" "Well, you see, Mrs. Law rence," she .replied cheerfully, "It's this a-way.

Dr. Magrath was eccentric. One day he was called up to visit a sick man and as he entered the room said cheer fully, "How do you do?" "Oh. doctor," replied the patient plaintively, ."I am dead." Magrath Immediately wheeled about and left the room and actually reported that the man was dead. The mistake waa discovered the following day, when some one took the doctor to task for issuing a false certificate. "I did It upon the very highest au thority." Magrath explained, "for I had It from the man's own mouth." Frao Medical Advice. The celebrated French physician Tftl cord was one day walking along the boulevards in Paris when he met an old gentleman who was very rich, but who was at the same time noted for his extreme stinginess. The old man, who was somewhat of a hypochon driac, imagined that he could get some medical advice from BJcord without paying for It "Doctor, I am feeling very poorly." "Where do you suffer most?"

After due consideration Mr. Luken decided to put his reputation and lo cal high standing behind Rheumaline for he was thoroughly convinced it is the best remedy for its special pur pose ou the market today. A. G. Lu ken & Co. is the sole agent in Rich iuond and the price of Rheumaline is 11.00 per bottle. Rheumaline capsules which are part of the treatment and aro to be used fo severe pain, cost 50c per box. When cor.stipated. Rheumaline tablets only should be used.

Juliana Horatia Ewlng. Kind of Grandpa. ' An old farmer was sitting In tha garden under a pear tree enjoying his after dinner pipe and the weekly pa per, and his little granddaughter play ed about among the flowers. "Here, dranpa," she said, " oo drink Is nice mtlk." 1 He didn't want it, of course, but rather than hurt the little child he gulped it down.- She took back the empty cup and toddled away. He heard her murmur ing as she went: "l's kind to dranpa 'cause he's old." Pretty, soon she toddled back with another cup of buttermilk, and the good hearted old man, putting down bis paper and p'p. tossed off the warm mixture with a feigned smile of Joy. "I's kind to dranpa 'cause he's old," she repeated. And in a little while she brought another cup of milk. The grandfather drank four or five of these offerings, and then for fun he followed the little girl to see where she was getting all that milk. Her way led straight to the hogpen, and as she filled her cup at the hog trough the horrified farmer heard her say piously: "I'a kind to dranpa Jcause he's old." A Deceiver.
