A SPASM OF REFORM.
THE REVIVAL THAT WAS SUGGESTED*F
FOR THE TOWN OF JERICHO.
Pap Perkins, the Postmaster, Tells t
Aboct the Enthusiasm With Which
Ab~iah Holden's Idea Was Greeted
and How Lish Billings Doused It
With a Wet Blanket.
[Copyright, 1900, by C. B. Lewis.]
It was Abijab Holden who first got
the idea, and he sprung it on the post
office crowd one Saturday night in the
most unexpected manner. IIe'd bin
keepin powerful quiet fur a week or
two, like a man who's left his jack
knife stickin in the barn door and is
tryin to remember the fact, and this
made the surprise all the greater. The
crowd was most ready to go home
when he got up and said:
"Feller Citizens of Jericho-I want
to see this town boomed as much as
any of you. I want to see her git up
and hump herself till Boston or Chica
go won't be in it, but when it comes to
choosin between size and goodness I'm
fur goodness. I think it's better fur
one's soul and body to live in a small,
good town than in a big, bad town.
I'm willin to go in and help push Jeri
cho along, as I said, but let's do it on
right lines. Let's start her off on a
high moral plane and keel) her so."

strong one, in what Bijah says," re

up to this period his language is sorter
ambiguous. IIe's drivin at sunthin, but

"It's jest this," resumed Abijah. "I'm I
in favor of holdin one of the biggest
religious revivals in this town this fall
that was ever held on the top of this f
airth. I want it to be kept up till ev
cry human bein in the place is gocd t
'huff to die at a tuinit's notice. We'll
git our moral standard first, and then
we'll purceed to boomr. When you kin
ndvertise the fact that a town of nigh
2.000 inhabitants h:i n't one single sin

Why, gentlemen. the influx, the rush,
of preachers alone to such a place will
bring about the sale of 2.000 city lots
within a year. Widders will come
here, orphans will come here, convert
ed sinners and reformed drunkards will
come here, and the newspapers will
spread it broadcast that Jericho has no
need of courts, constables or jails."
"I do decide that Bijah has made a
p'int," said the deacon. "In a gineral
way Jericho is a purty good town, but1
its moral standard kin be boosted up

a ringin speech. lie had bin seeln

years, but not feelin strong 'nuff to 1

thieves and swindlers in the town.c
There was also drunkenness and pro- I
faity and bettin. He had sometimes

checked up it was only a question ofr

the bell for services and sweep out I
the church and not charge a cent ford

Clothe. and the Man.
If a Filipino enters the house of a
European living in an unassuming
way, he will nct believe that the Eu
ropean is either weaitihy or wise, and,
although his manner may be correct,
it will not be humble. On the other
hand, if he visits an ignorant man
who indulges in great splendor, he will
at once become exceedingly respectful. c
Mr. Phelps Whitmarsh, who in The :
Outlook gives his experiences in the
islands, tells the story of a wealthy
provincial visiting Manila for the first
time, who asked to be presented to the
When he reached the palace, he
found the governor taking ecfee en
his piazza, dressed comfortably in a
white cotton suit. The Filipino re
quested that some favor be extended
to his district, and his request was
granted. H~e then withdrew. The of1i
cial who had procured the presenta
tion asked him what he thought of the
"Why." replied the visitor in a tone
of disappointment. "he is no different
from any other white man."
It so lhappened that the general was
told of the incident, and he gave or
ders that at his next reception the,
Filipino should be present.
Upon entering the throneroom and
seeing the general In full uniform,
surrounded by his brilliant staff, with
the accessories of splendid tapestries,
laced ushers and all the pomp and'
splendor of these Spanish functions, i
the provincial grew pale and, kneeling c
in deep humility, exclaimed:
"This is indeed my general!"
So impressed was he that the fol
lowing morning he sent a pair of hand
some horses to the general with a note d
which read: t
"My general, yesterday I liked you a
so much in your uniform of gold that Ie
I send you this pair of horses, but do I

Mirror Mad. (
"What!" exclaims the astonished
reader, "is it possible that there are I
any civilized persons on the face of the :
earth who are not in the habit of be
holding their'- visages reflected from
tinie to time in a mirror of some kind?
Surely this cannot be so." Wrong,
quite wrong, gentle reader, for at the
present time, strange as it may ap
pear, ther-e are hundreds of men and
women in the United KIngdom who
have not gazed into a mirror for years.
The convicts confined in British pris
ns form members of this community.
From the moment of a convict's en
trance to a fail to the moment of his
exit he is not permitted to have the
use of a mirror of any kind, the small
est piece of glass being rigidly denied
him. To the women convicts this ab
sence of a mirror forms one of the
chief hardships of conflnement, and
many a female warder can tell piteous
tales of women who have actually fall
en upon their knees and sobbed out
entreaties for the loan of a morsel of*
mrror-"just for a second." All these
entreaties have perforce to be disre
garded, and It therefor-e comes about
that many a female convict passes
three or four years without being per
mitted to gaze upon her own features,
