the career and death of the late trae

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.
The funeral bier of this multimilllon-
v'aire, art critic and connoisseur was a I

cber was a damping room for refuse,
Afterward, of course, the body lay In

he had tried to drive his wife. Nobody
but the reporters and curiosity , seekers
came. Neither wife nor child nor rela

Yerkes divorced the wife who had

esthetic taste.
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
You cannot walk to happiness, my
brethren, by stepping on broken hearts
and gold dollars.
A Chicago newspaper tells the story
of a family heir to $1,000,000 that best

"Quixotic," some people would call It.

a wife and eight children. The family

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

four of them occupied the least crowd

Scotland railway. Just as the train
was moving off a diminutive little cler-

and tried to edge himself in betvreen

Strong claims were made by a trav

rheumatic remedy called Rheumaline.
Upon Investigation it was found he
sold it, but his claims were so at var

rheumatic cure that special interest
was manifested and positive proof
presented. It seems too much cannot
be 'said about this remedy In its par

it does not cure everything. It does
cure Rheumatism, Lumbago, Sciatica,
Neuralgia, Gout and Kidney, Liver,

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

that he now had only one wife and waa

about and left the room and actually
reported that the man was dead. The

day, when some one took the doctor
to task for issuing a false certificate.

himself down upon a pile of bay. fell

Boys discovered him, and. with the
