Luken & Co. PAYNE FIGHTING FOR A DECREASE IN TARIFF BILL (Continued From Page One.) He Tried to Follow Ordoro as Ho Un derstood Them. The major dropped into his clnb In London one night with three pieces of courtplaster on bis nose and an eye In half mourning and was vainly Impor tuned to divulge tbe cause. He de clined all confidences, but one friend, to whom, in a weak moment, he related tbe circumstances under which he had received his scars, told all about it after the major's departure. It appears that be was stopping at an out-of-town hotel where a brawny farmer's son bad been engaged with no experience In hotel work, but with a frame capable of caring for bis mas ter's property during the small hours and with a profound sense of duty as well. The weather was cold, and the major asked tbe landlord to have a fire made In his room at 6:30 the next morning. As Is customary, a slate was hung In tbe hallway containing directions for the night porter regard ing the time guests were to be called to catch early trains, etc., so tbe land lord wrote upon the slate: "Fire 40 at 6:30." Next morning tbe major was awak ened by a loud knock at his door. He shouted "Come in," for It was 6:80, and tbe porter entered. "You're to git out," he said briefly. "What do you mean?" asked the major testily. "I'll show you phwhat I mane," re marked Pat, "if you don't git mighty quick. I've orders to fire you out at 6:30, and out ye go." "What kind of a fool are you any way?" shouted the major, sitting up In bed. "I am all kinds." responded the por ter, "but I obey orders just the same, and out you go." Suiting the action to bis words, he grabbed the major by the neck and hauled him out into the middle of the room. "'Now drlss yourself," said Pat, "and drlss quick or Oi'll throw you out as ye are." Tbe major began to storm and used language not to be repeated, where- ' upon the exasperated and honest por ter sprang upon his victim and shot him into the hall like a bundle of rags. The major's clothes, traveling bags, rugs, etc., followed. " "Now," said Pat, "if ye don't drlss In foive minutes out ye go In the st rate as ye were born!" And out the major would have gone, but the landlord, disturbed by the noise, came and rescued him from his formidable persecutor. And that was the result of Pot's interpretation of "Fire 40 at 6:30." i- SS: Sn MD) torMlsiMll AsMmn Iftrtes leirev ftto FfllM(pM Price Ktote Merc Tltaere n (Oily (Die Price leire BOSTON Sale, M is Yours WatfedPill, He Mkj STORE Everything Reduced SwmroinnieF Qeairaeee Make out a careful memorandum oil all you want.

His concession re specting gloves and hosiery is the most important one. It does not mean any reduction in the price to the consumer, but it ought to mean that there will be no advance. The senate, it will be recalled, re-! fused to accept the outrageous duties imposed by the house bill and restored the Dingley rates. For a time Mr. Payne had his back up about these matters and appeared determined to insist that the senate respect the ac tion of the lower branch of the na tional legislature. , It looks now as If Payne from the first made the in creases in order to use them for trad ing purposes. Payne Applauded by Insurgents. ! Payne deserves credit for the way In which he has been insisting upon the acceptance, with the exceptions named, of the rates in his bill. He is fighting for them first and last in spite of the attitude of some of his colleagues, who believe that conces sions should be made to the senate. His course Is receiving the applause Tof many members of the house and the senate insurgents. The former have assured him that If he would appeal to the house he could get the support of a -hundred Republicans. Members of the senate who voted- against the bill are telling the New Yorker that if he is to stand In history as the father of the bill he must force the . senate to surrender all along the line.

Always be cheerful, because it pro motes the health by exhilarating the physical ' functions, by stimulating the process of respiration, by oxygenizing the blood, by Improving nutrition and by causing the mind to feel confident of success. Charge your mind with feelings of hnpplness. success. Joy and cheer. Remember that the pathway of the soul is not a steady ascent, but a hilly and broken one. and do not be come pessimistic, for the pessimist poisons his very blood and darkens the horizon of the sun of Joy. Health Rec ord. Sympathy. In an emergency the manufacturer of Llmburger cheese was forced to use strategy with a shipment. Ordinarily his product went in special cars, but in this instance no car was available, and the order must be filled. Two huodred pounds of the fragrant comes tible was put in a rough, oblong box and taken to the railroad baggajye room. Then the manufacturer bought a ticket for himself and tbe box and entered the train. rt the first stop he went ahead to the bagnge car to see that there was no trouble. He stood by tbe box in a disconsolate at titude and shaded his eyes wltb bis hand. The baggageman was sympa thetic. "A relative?" he asked. "Yes. answered the manufacturer; "it Is my brother." "Well," said the railroad man philosophically, "you have one consolation. He's dead, all right." Choosing the Lesser Evil. The proverbial wit of the Irish jar vey Is oftentimes mixed with an un dercurrent of stern reality that is as touching as it is eloquent. A' gentle man driving through Sackville street Dublin, the other day on an outside car commented on the wretched ap pearance of the horse. Said be. "Pat, you ought to be taken up for cruelty to animals, driving such an old screw as that." "Be gor. sur." was the quick reply, "if I didu't dhrlve that. I'd be taken up for cruelty to a wife and six chil der." St. James' Gazette. New York, July 15 Robert Goelet, who has been a persistent wooer of Miss Mary Harriman, daughter of E. H. Harriman, the railroad king, left New York today to join the Harri mans at Semmering, Austria, and, ac cording to rumors in the smart set; will steadfastly pursue his courtship until they return to this country. Young Goelet, whose attentions to Miss Harriman date from over a year ago, was a member of the party the financier took with him on a trip in his private car covering a large part of the West' Miss Harriman accom panied her father also, and Goelet's admiration was generally remarked. Since the fight over the control of the Illinois Central railroad a. year and a half ago, when Goelet was made a director by Harriman, the elder man has shown a marked interest in the young financier. PATH'S EARNINGS. The Sinner's Progress. In narrating a story of a naughty girl and an English magistrate in bis book, "Old and Odd Memories." the Hon. - Lionel A. Tollemache supple ments it with that famous example of antl-cllmax. ttc rebuke of a head mas ter to youthful Etonians for unpunc tuality ai chapel, "Your conduct Is an Insult to the Almighty and keeps the canons waiting." The young girl mentioned was had up before the magistrate by a farmer for killing one of his ducks with a stone. The case against her was quite clear, but it was thought worth while to call witnesses to prove that she was very nanghty indeed nd in the habit of using bad language. Then, in solemn accents, the mag istrate addressed .her: "Little girl, you have heard the evi dence against you. and you see bow one thing leads to another. You ha gan by curbing and swearing and blas pheming your Maker, and you hare endod ? - t,-Tr?nr a stone at a An? v The Shrewd Financial Methods of the Musical Miracle. Adellna Pattl never suffered from the financial timidity of a Jenny Llnd. Not only was she a supreme vocalist; but, as Colonel Maplcson remarked, "no one ever approached her in the art of obtaining from a manager the greatest possible sum he could by any possibility contrive to pay." But the musical miracle was the spoiled dar ling of her day, and she never failed to obtain exactly what sbe wanted. She was first engaged in London in 1861 by Mapleson to sing four nights "on approval" and in case of success to obtain 40 a week. This contract was not fulfilled, however, for. being hard pressed financially, she had bor rowed '50 from a rival manager, and her receipt proved practically a con tract. This was the beginning of a career so dazzling that its successive steps are simply a series of increasing banknotes. In 1S72 sbe obtained in London 200 guineas a night, since sbe insisted on having more than Christine Nllsson. who was receiving 200. She sang twice a week. Ten years later she was given $5,000 a night! Her fa mous contract to sing in America pro vided that the money should be. paid her at 2 o'clock on the day she sang; also a drawing room and sleeping car to be especially -built for her, with conservatory, fernury, etc. Further, there was to be deposited to her credit $50,000 for payment of the last ten performances Pattl's favorite device. She thus received about twenty times what Mario and Grisl got. Her private car Incidentally cost $00,000 and contained a silver bath and gold keys to the doors, to say nothing of a $2,000 piano. Pattl gave to the manager only her voice and her costumes. Her drawing capacity Justl- fled this. "Lucia," as an example, was sung to an average of $14,000. "Travi ata" drew more, since she sang more notes. It was a frequent occurrence among the poorer music lovers to buy a club ticket and each take turns at hearing her for twenty minutes. If one overstayed his time be paid for the entire ticket. Some mathematicians computed by dividing the number of notes sung by the sum paid that In "Semlramlde" Pattl received 42 cents for each note. This was found to be .just 7 1-10 cents a note more than Ros sini got for writing the whole opera. George Middleton in Bookman. out. Four times as'blg asTlie, she" was, I assure you." "Did you run?" I asked, laughing. "Ob, not at all; not at all," said he. "But still J thought It best not to re main." He paused and stroked bis stubbly chin reflectively. "By Jove," said he finally, "bow very interesting! I should have thought to photograph the old one. She looked quite savage, don't you know." "Such a picture Wouldy have been unique, to say the least," I replied. "Quite so," said he. Why She Was Right. Haydn had a peculiar way of deter mining the time In which a piece of music should be sung. On one occasion a female singer in high esteem at court had been appointed to sing one of Haydn's compositions. At the re hearsal she and the conductor differed as to the time of the music. Tbe mat ter was to be settled by referring it to Haydn himself. When called on to de cide he : asked the conductor If the singer was handsome. ' "Very," was the reply, "and a spe cial favorite wltb the prince." "Then sbe Is right," replied Haydn.

The best bear story I ever heard, states writer In Recreation, was told me by an amateur prospector, who might have stepped ont of a comic weekly. He had made a big trip Jn the Slnklyous with no weapon save a nickel plated miner's rick. "Hare you seen much game? I asked. "None at all be replied in his dry falsetto.

Prophet, Daniel Chapman; sachem, Jesse Rhodenburg; senior sagamore, Frank Trenioil; junior sagamore, Clyde Dailey. REMODELS BARN. Milton, Ind., July 15. Frank Con nelly, of Doddridge, is remodeling his barn at an estimated cost of $1,100. Mr. Lyons of Connersville has the contract. Miss Katherine Braffett of La grange will come next week to be the house euest of Mrs. Byram C. Rob-. bins, 103 South Fourteenth street. Eaton, O., July 15. During the past two or three days' confinement in the Preble county Jail, Harry Rife, mur derer of Mrs. Lida Gllmore 'Griswold, has apparently been brought into his normal state of mind and is now pos sessed with a sense capable of realiza tion and his retrospection of the crime he committed has led to his regret of the affair. The change that has taken place has carried with it an awful worry. Sheriff W. S. Boner states that Rife has hardly partaken of sufficient food for a mortal's sustenance. His sleep is worried and short. These two facts have caused a general decline in his physical appearance, which is now likened to that of a person who had suffered an illness. He no doubt real izes the enormity of his crime and the hopeless predicament in which he has been placed. Spooning in Parks Will Get Protection From The Police Chicago, July 15. Spooning has been sanctioned' by the police. Park spark ing will be encouraged. The coppers who' formerly arrested affectionate people will stand guard and play stat ue while sweethearts kiss and hold hands. Love making has come into its own. ' '- - -; : , ' ' Inspector Hunt is the friends of the amorous souls who has started tho new order of things. Official Instruc tions were issued yesterday for the po licemen to guard the sweethearts and protect them from all Interruption. And now those who prefer the tree screened light of the moon to the low turned gas of their homes may caress each other in peace for the law has recognized the right of the girls to be courted. And when any staid person of uncertain age tries to protect those who want only to be left alone, the re former and not those to be reformed will be ares ted. Edward Fisher and E. W. Williams are tbe pioneers whose appeals to tht police have brought Joy to the hearta of the sparkers. As the two men sal in Washington- park Tuesday night with Miss Mayme Jordan and Miss Edith Wharton they were confronted by accusing disturbers, who threat ened to call the police and make em barrassing charges it the; couples did not contribute flO each. The wooert couldn't see why they needed anyone'! permission to spoon, and so they lav duced Inspector Hunt to issue the or der protecting their love making. And now when soft words art breathed and tenderness reigns In th well shaded nooks, the copper will stof on his beat and see that no commoa disturber, who hasn't a sweetheart ol his own. strolls too near the lovemmk ing couple. How to Knew Hemlock. - The occasional reports ia tbe papers of children or animals being poisoned by eating seme umbelliferous plant emphasizes the Importance of being able to distinguish tbe dangerous ones. In the case of hemlock Itself, the most poisonous of all. this is not difficult. Notice first the dark green, much cut and divided leaves and the peculiar odor which botanists call fetid. But perhaps the most obvious thing and that which most easily distinguishes the hemlock from all other . umbellif erous plants Is the stem. This is smooth, polished, slightly furrowed and of a green color blotched and spot ted with purple. No other member of tbe order bas a stem in tbe least like it London Globe.
