New Yort.?Impressed by a vivid dream in which she saw herself throw away her crutches, Helen K. Scott, paralyzed since 1012 and described by specialists to be hopelessly crippled, walked to school from her home. She expressed a desire to enter the gymnasium class Immediately, but her parents objected. In January of 1912 Miss Scott, who is fourteen years old. returned from Sunday school and complained of her legs hurting her. In u few days she was unable to walk and was pronounced a hopeless cripple, suffering from infantile paralysis. The family Immediately called specialists, but all shook their heads and stated they could do nothing for the child. For months Miss Scott was wheeled about her home in a chair and was often called "the sunshine of the neighborhood." Her school classmates had aided in caring for her and had taken turns in ? * u 1 ? "' ???* c? t cnntc In fl wnetimg utrr uuuui iuv ouwM wheel chair her parents provided for her. Her birthday is Dec. 26, so last Christmas her parents tendered a party to her girl friends. She attended it on crutches, which she had learned to use. That night the girls united In wishing her better health and the recovery of the use of her legs. The next morning Mrs. Scott was told by her daughter that she had a dream thnt she could walk. For several days she talked of the dream to her family and friends. One night soon afterward Mrs. Seott heard a noise In the room occupied by the cripple and. runnlug upstairs, was surprised to find her daughter standing alone. In one corner of the room lay the discarded crutches. Miss Scott wns able to walk without assistance and finally regained strength enough to venture into the street. Finally she walked quite a little distance from her home to the Teachers' training school of Jamaicn. where she has entered as a student She says she will soon begin dancing lessons. X \ ~ A Preliminary Test of Skill By MARK HAMMERTON =============== I "1 vlll pig stick you!" The words were addressed to me by t lieuteuaut iu the German urmy. He was very youug, his beard Just sprouting. and since there hud been no war between Germany and any other power since loug before he was born he had had no way of letting off his surplus vim. We were In u beer garden, and he had been sitting at a table near one at which i sat with a purty of American frieuds. Getting up from his table, be walked past us, and. my foot being in his way. * - * 1" ??* 1.1,, o rrn Incf tr | ne COOK piUUM tu niuuiuir ... Then, glaring down at me, be said in English: * "I vill pig stick you!" "What does the fellow mean?" "You've been challenged to fight a duel." said Washburn, an attache at the American legation. He had lived in Berlin a number of years and knew the ways or the inhabitants. "He can send all the challenges be pleases." 1 said. "I'll pay no attention to them." "In that case." Washburn replied, "you must give up the social staud you have prepared to take In Berlin. I shouldn't like to put you forward as I have promised unless you either fight young Donhoff. whom everybody knows and who Is on intimate terms with the Imperial family, or find some way out of the matter." "What way out of the matter Is there?" "I'll think it over. I've helped several Americans out of such scrapes By the bye. 1 think I'll try the plan by which 1 saved AJbertson from getting a sword thrust l>etweeu his ribs." "What plnn?" "I didn't explain It till the affair was settled, nor will I tell you. Put your self in ni.v hands, ask no questions, nnd I think 1 can bring you out of this with honor, probably with eclat." I assented, and he took a message from me to F)nnhoff. I was fcu A titerfeai^ and Americans did It tight due*. However}*! was willing to fight under certain conditions, or. rnther. I would prove myself more skillful than he. We would (Ire at a hen's egg a( twenty paces. If he hit the egg oftener than 1. I would stand up and permit him to shoot at me as long as be liked If I hit the ecu more times than he. he was to submit himself as a target for me. The hot headed youngster accepted the conditions. Indeed, he was rather pleased at the novelty of the plan Washburn arranged for a test of skill in a fencing academy and brought a basket of eggs to the place, which were to serve as targets. The affair being an unusual one. none of the safeguards common in duel preliminaries were taken Washburn fixed the target, suspending the egg by a thread. Donhoff nnd I tossed for order ?>f trinl. and 1 won. Each principal was to deliver five shots, and the one who shattered more eggs than the other won The day before the test I could scarcely hit a hum door. hut I practiced sufficiently to hit uii egg at least once In five shots On the trial I *|??ttered the contents twice Oonhoff. who like nil tiermnn army officers was a good marksman. looked upon m.v work with evident contempt I missed the first and second shots, unci its soon as I had done so he seemed to lose all in terest in the contest. He had doubtless made a previous trial and, discovered he could lilt the egg every time. I had been Instructed by Washburn that when I beat DonhotT-and Washhum assured me that if his plan worked I would?I was immediately to renounce my right to make a target of him Washburn hung an egg for htm. He fired somewhat carelessly and missed. He was surprised especially at seeing the egg vibrating from the wind of the ball. He fired a second shot, this time aiming carefully. Again he miss ed. and again the egg danced. If now he hit the egg at every remaining shot he could still beat me. Though he took a long time to aim before the third shot, he missed it. He could now only tie me. But he had become so irritated with himself tnar ne was nor at pa me or aoinp as pood work as before. He missed the fourth and fifth shots, the epp at each successive shot vibratinp less. IndicatInp that his aim had prown less accurate. On missinp the fifth shot he threw his pistol down with an oath. Washburn shot me a plance, and I cried. "I renounce tho ripht 1 have won!" and. hastenlnp to Donboff, put out my hand. He took It, rautterinp Imprecations on himself for hnvinp been so clumsy. Then he and his party thanked me for my magnanimity and left the academy "By Jove!" exclaimed Washburn sinking into a chair, "if those fellows bnd exercised one-tenth the ?*are ilu-v would have taken In :m ordinary duel [ would have luid to leave Berlin " "What do you mean?" I n?k?"l "Yon fired nt u solid esy.

I entered Berlin society under Washburn's wine with great eclat I feared that I would be called ii|h>ii to maintain my chnmpiousblp, but was let severely alone. CONDENSED WISDOM.

Continuing be said: "The time must come when public ( educational institutions must be more practical. My first public advice to all schools would be to simplify the curriculum by separating all 'facts that , are so' from 'facts that are not so.'" All Out. A young preacher persuaded a fellow student to listen while he rebeursed a ! sermou. His subject was "Light." j With a violent gesture with the right arm he said. "Blot out the sun!" With a similarly fruntie movement of the left arm he roared. "Blot out the moon!" Then, with a combined gesture. made up of both arms, he bellowed "Blot out tlie stars!" But it was enough.

All genuine oriental rugs and many of domestic make can be washed with soap und water. The method most successful is to take a thick suds and apply it with a heavy cloth, wrung almost dry in It. The cloth should be rubbed in the direction of the nap of the rug. and after all grease spots and other dirt have disappeared the whole surface of the rug should be sponged until all trace of soap Is gone | witb a cloth wrung out of clear water. Tbe rug must be left to dry wbere It is cleaned, flat on the door. INDIANS TAKE UP TANGO. Shoshona Nation In Nevada Will Have a Dance Hall. Reno, New?Tbe extent to which the craze for the tango has entered the lives of th^? Shoshone nation of Nevada Indians, who are abandoning all tribul dances, is causing much surprise. I'luus are under way so that the younger and middle aged Indians, notably those throughout White Tine district. will have u large dunce ball in which to learn the tango. One of tbe Indian maidens, many of whom are remarkably clever, has so perfected herself in the tango that she Is giving a complete course of lessons for $2.50. The Indians dance until daylight, the camp at Murray canyon beipg liveliest of nil Indian Dave, the blind chief. and other chiefs almost blind furuisii music on violins and harmonicas. Captain John, an old. influential chief. Joins with press and pulpit in antagonizing the tango, but Ills opposition, together with that of other old bucks and squaws of Shoshone nation, does not prevent a surprising growth of the white man's dance. From the State of Utah By F. A. MITCHEL M. Me Gournny. a citizen ?f Parts, was sitting in Ills club reading a news jiaper when u young tuun approached him and said: "Monsieur, pardon me for Interrupt ing your reading, but I have a request to make of you. 1 am a citizen of the | United States?Utah Is where 1 hall ? from?and I have made a fortune In cattle, mines, merchandising? in short by every means except selling liquor over the bar. 1 came here to see Ktirope. At tirst everything seemed old 1 fashioned, but In time I got used to ' your ways, and now I like them tirst rate, even to the way you commit matrimony." De Gournny looked up at the speaker as he would at a curious kind of ant mal in n menagerie. The American proceeded: "When we on the other side of the big salt lake make up our minds to do a thing in any other way than our own ' we never try to mix the two methods < I have a proposition to make, and I'm going to make It on the French plan The other night at the American embassy I met one of your daughters. I have concluded to make you a prop osltlon for her band." Whatever were De Gournay's feel- ! lngs at this blunt announcement be did . not give way to them. He stared nt the speaker In n sort or wonaer ror awhile, then said wltn French suavity: "And you consider, monsieur, thn. you have ndopted our method of opening a matrimonial negotiation?' "I will admit that there Is an Amer lean flavor to It?I mean a Rocky mountain aroma." "Decidedly." said the Frenchman In , well modulated tones, while he kept his eyes flxed on his Interviewer, evidently studying him. Jack Henderson's face bespoke that free, uncultured frankness Indigenous ] to a new country. There was not a diplomatic feature, not a trace of meanness. In It.
