SHOPPERS MANY WOES
By BARBARA BOYD. Bhg approached the floorwalker, as tain# the man of knowledge, and ufc ed pleasantly: "Can yon tell me where I can find knitted sleeping oapeT" lie looked slightly pussled. "Knit ted sleeping caper he reeponded du biously. "Tee. For outdoor sleeping One needs something to protect the head, you know." "Yee, to be sure. They are in the muslin underweas department." "But they aren't underwear." "No. But the flannelette nlglit gowns are there, and ? " "But theee aren't flannelette." she objected. "I understand,'* be said soothingly. "But all such things are together. Fourth floor; take the elevator." So ahe took the elevator, though she thought whlmalcally that more correctly, It took her, and Journeyed to the fourth floor. "I am looking for knitted sleeping csps," ahe explained to a saleswoman in the muslin underwear department, "something to wear on the head for aleeplng outdoors." The saleswoman flung out a flan nelette nightgown with a hood. "No, that Isn't what 1 want. I Just want a cap for the head It Is made purposely for sleeping outdoors It la knitted." "You'll find the knitted things In the Art Needlework." said the sales woman, gathering up ner nightgown. "But this isn't exactly art needle work?" "All the knitted goods are there," replied the saleswoman, putting the nightgown In a drawer, and turning away. So to the Art Needlework fared the searcher for a night cap, and ones more told the tale of her needs. "We have these knitted motor toques," said the saleswoman. "No, they are not what I want These sleeping caps are made pur posely for sleeping outdoors. They are knitted to flt over the head and oome well down over the forehead?'* The saleswoman's face showed a gleam of Intelligence. "I know," she said. "You'll And them In the Hosiery I>ej>artment" "Hosiery!" "Yea. All the knitted things are there It's the 8ubway Clallery In the basement." Ho to the b*ncmeul ihe woman Joui* neyed and interviewed the stocking counter The saleswoman shook her head. "You should have gone to the knit un derwear counter." she said with a note of mild reproof In her voice. And as the searcher turned away she heard the saleswoman say to a fellow clerk: "They'll be coming here for washtubs next." Wearily she leaned against the knit underwear counter. "Have you knit ted sleeping capa?" she asked a sales man. "Notion counter." he said briskly. He apoke so confidently hope re vived. and she turned her footsteps toward (he notion counter "You'll And them," said the Kales woman In reply to her Inquiry. "No, I won't," replied the woman flrinly. "They are not In house fur nlalilngs, nor In harness supplies, nor yet In photographic goods nor Jewelry. The shoe department hasn't got them, nor gloves In fact. 1 don't think they are in the store." At this the saleswoman woke tip. "Why don't you try the office of ths manufacturer?" she ask?d "It's right down Main street I'll look up ths number In the phone book." This she did, and confident the quest was now at an end, the worn and weary searcher set forth down Main street But at the number giv en there was no knit goods office, and nobody In the neighborhood knew of any. Kor s moment ahe looked at a depsrtment atore across the street But her watch told her the morning was gone, her foet told her she waa dead tired, and her ootnmon sense told her to go home and sleep Indoors like ordinary mortals. And whan her husband asked her that night If she had been shopping ahe said, "No. Hunting." Whereat he made some aarcastlc remarks about the time women waste fooling around In the shops. But she was too tlrod to open up an argument. Chang* In Modern Life.

The same thin* may be said of the spices. Pepper can be adulterated only with peas or ground beans, and this fraud also may be readily detected. The rule may be almost universally applied to all foods that pass through the kitch en. and especially the ki? hens of the wealthy.

His white locks grew mors aiid more belligerently erect as he excitedly ran his fingers through his usually orderly hair; his cheeks were flushed by his wrath and his piercing blue-gray eyes flew storm signals of anger. "Never heard the bent of It In my life!? never! the young cub!" he growled. "Here I've worked and slav ed, and Blaved and worked to give him a chance and a good time, and this is my thanks. Not even a by-your leave! Bless me. It's? It's madden ing!" and the old doctor blew his nose with a loud and valiant sound, which yet somehow or other ended with a curious pathetic little squeak that suggested a very great anger merged Into a very decided hurt. Of course, Maria, you quite agree with him. I know," he trumpeted harshly In a vain endeavor to subdue the tremor In his voice, "but I must say 1 had a better opinion of your Judement than to call that mannish Elliott creature with ber cigarette puf fings, a sweet little thing.' and," here the gruff voice took on an even harsh er tone, "that Eric should dare to say he was bringing you a new daughter to help fill Nelsle'? place ? our little white, golden haired Nelsle!" "But, my dear. I am silre you are mistaken. Indeed, I know you are judging her wrongly ? " "Wrong nothing," snapped the doc tor testily. "I hope I have enough j solid horse sense to put two and two together when I see them. I've never ! seen the creature myself and I hope to goodness I never do, but Duncan \ was telling me only yesterday that she can bet and tipple and smoke to equal any of those young fools who hang around her. Ugly tempered, too, says she leads her cousin who lives with them a dog's life." "Now, father, I Just knew you were | Jumping at conclusions," spoke up the gentle little Dresden lady in such a spirited and reproachful voice that the doctor's mouth opened in sheer amaze ment. "Oh, of course I know nothing, ab solutely nothing; but this I do know, even If I am in iny dotage, that that mannish creature with lior loud voice and her sports Isn't quite the Ideal daughter of my dreams." The old man turned abruptly and lert the room. l.ate that afternoon he made his way slowly and wearily towards the sun baked. tenement-choked district called In town parlance "the poor's acre," and for almost the first time In his sixty halo years he felt-the weariness of life and Its utter and abject misery as It Is vouchsafed to some. For years thi9 peppery little doctor, whose bark was so much worse than his bite, had worked among these poor of a great city. l-'or a time he had sought help In his 1 self-assumed task from his little Dres- j den lady wife, but she had grieved so j 111 her gentle way over their, to her, sordid and awful sufferings, that he I had comforted her as. ho might have done a child, and had left her in peace i at home. From that day he had never men tioned his poor in her presence, and as If to mako up for her deficiencies, he i had thrown himself into his work with | redoubled energy. But somehow of late years he had felt more and more I keenly the need of a woman's love and 1 guidance among thetn, and many a j time a half unconscious sighing wish had crept through his troubled mind. "If only Nelsle had lived to be a com rade and a help." With stooped shoulders and lagging steps he mounted the dark stairs of the first tenement house, nnd a shrink- j Ing dread of his visit and of what he must see filled him. He could picture the scene quite vividly, he assured himself, and he sighed Impatiently at his own Impotence. "The baby will be crying. Tommy nnd Sue will be n little bit dirtier than usual, and a good deal erosser. while Tlmtny. poor wee lad. will be a tiny bit quieter nnd Just as thoughtful ae ever. If only their mother could have sonto one to take care of her. figuratively find literally, she'd stand a chance of | getting better, and If she doesn't ? may ' Cod help them all! If only Nelsle hnd lived." sighed Nelale'n father as lie re ] luctantly opened the door, nnd then j suddenly Ills sharp grny eyes filmed, , for the sun's rays showed him a Nel sle-llke golden head bent over n sleep ing bnby by the uncurtained window, while around and about peace and or der reigned. "Well, bless iny soul!" quoth the doctor In a husky whisper, and he laid his hand very lenderly upon little crippled Tlmtny'* head, whose usually pale face was crimson with the Rtip pressed excitement of his present won derful happiness "It's Miss Delight, doc." he whispered shrilly, "and she's ftoln* to take Iteer on us till mammy's better, cos she said so. n" she brung us ii chicken pie for dinner." The doctor tiptoed across the creak Ing even floor, and all the tiredness end the fiery petulance died out under the warmth of his kind, grave stnlle. "Miss Delight ? ?" he queried. "Elliott," emllcd the girl with the Kelsle-llke golden hair "You will not lie cross because I wanted to help In Nelsle's place, as Eric hns told mo," ?he begged. "Eric!" said the doctor slowly. "El llott, are you Eric's?but, but she smokes," stammered the doctor In con fusion. "nnd she "Adrlane Elliott Is my cousin," an i iwered the girl, quietly. | Then the old doctor laughed alone |n shamefaced but utter happlnoss.

Shorty after the shooting at the Woolam place. Sheriff Burke, attir ed in blue overalls, was engaged in putting the place to "rights" when the stranger came along to ask for I *? cup of coffee. The sheriff ques tioned him sharply and the stranger not knowing the official answered him shortly. So he was taken in custody. It so happened that the stranger bore a close resemblance to W. H. Kartell, wanted for passing bad checks, and after he was brought to the office the resemblance caused him some worry. He was shown a photograph of Hartell and admitted the resemblance but denied the identity. After further investiga tion he was released. ? Journal. DEATH RESDLT OF MINE CAVE Mrs. A. A. Burke, wife of Sheriff Hurke, today received a telegram from Weaverville Cal., that her brother Gilbert Schorer, was killed in a ca\e in of the Upton mine on Trinity river, 00 miles northwest of Weaverville. The messeage was from the coroner of Trinity county, California J. A. Wallace. There were no particulars. Schorer was employed in the Upton mine to assist in hydraulic placer mining in which tall banks of earth hundreds of feet in height are washed away by water power toic cover the gold bidden in them. The result of this method of min ing is occasional great caves of earth, and it was in one of tiieae that Schorer met his death. He w 38 37 yenrs of age and had visited in K<.'no several times al though hr had never resided here. He was born In California. Mrs. Hurke will not go to Cali fornia for the funeral as the country is wild and inaccessible and heavily covered with snow. The burisl will take place at the mine. ? Heno (inaette. R, O.

Ten to one you told a story; And then left your truthful ways For the glimmer of a fancy. Which you call to mind to day, All about the finny fellows And how the big fish got away. The largest fish in lake or river Are the ones that get away; That's the way it always happens. And it happens every day. Every man and hoy who fishes. Always knows just what to say: ? "We got a string of li tee fish," The biggest ones all got away." Men whofish are often liars. That is what the people think; It's enough to drive them crazy, Or, they find relief in drink. And then tell those fancy stories Every time without a fear; It's a failing of the fisher, And has been for many a year. When a fellow goes a-courting, Commences all the girls a-sounding; W'ith his bow aud quiver ready. How his heart commences pounding; Hear him stammer; hear him stutter; And hear him try his best to say, (No matter how his heart may flutter) "Yes. all the big fish got away" When a man goes fortune hunting. To become a millionaire, Finds the only way to do it. And make all the pe. pie stare, Is to catch those sharks in Wall Street, Sell them out most any day; But it makes him feel so foolish. When all tie big fish uret away. Every story told of fishing, Makes a man feel young again; Drivps away the darkest sorrow, Makes us all feel more like men, Takes us hack to childhood plea sures Changes gloom to brightest day, When the mind reverts in fancy To times thebigfithgot away. Men may hunt the wide world over, Searching pleasure, finding pain; They may pluck the rarest flowers. But the mind roams back again To the days of childhood hours, Which isn't very far away; In the memory of golden days. When the big fish got away. Men may fight and Men may struggle, To win a place high up in Fame; They may reach 'heir hearts desire, And may leave behind a name Emblazoned bright in statecraft lore; But nothing makes their hearts so Kay. As recollections now and then. Of how the big fish got away. ADVERTISED LETTER LIST The following letters and ranis remain uncalled for in the F.lko Post Office for the week ending Mar. 1, 1913.

HURRIES A special dispatch from St. Louit to the Denver Republican says : The marriage of Mrs. Lydia Mae Talbot Wednesday in New York reealls.the young woman's, former marriago which culminated in her acquittal on the "barge of killing her bus band, Robert Talbot "'Prince of Gamblers" at Reno., in 1911. In 1908. when 20 years old Ldia Mae Lock was living in St Louis with her sister, Mrs. John Schmidt of 3423 Humphrey street. She was studying music and showed promise of great talent. On-* day she disappeared and the next her sister heard of her was in at telegram from Denver saying that she had been married to Robert Talbot at the Brown Palace Hotel. Talbot was well connected. His brother had for years been member of the Canadian parliament in Ottawa, sister a had long been a member of the Carmelite order and another sister after being a nun nearly thirty years had just been granted adispensation and was married. They had been married a year when Mrs. Schmitt received a tele gram begging her to hurry to Reno. When she arrived she found her sister unable to walk, as the result of the treatment she had received a week before. "My sister's letters from then on" said Mrs. Schmitt, "were a constant testimony to her ill treat ment ,and early in 1911 Iwa9again called to Reno. This time my baby sister had been beaten until she was unrecognizable. "One morning she and her hus band went in an attorney's office to arrange a property settlement. They were sitting side by side on the couch conversing quietly. While there Talbot was killed. "She was arrested, charged with murder and brought to trial in December. Talbot's brother went j from Canada and assisted the I state's counsel in the prosecution, while two of the most prominent lawyers in Colorado, both former state officials, defended her. "After a short deliberation the jury returned a verdict of not guilty. Mrs. Talbot returned to St. Louis with me, and after a short stay hero sailed for Europe to resume her musical studies, re turning last fall." Her engagment to Harrold was then announced to her intimate friends but did not become common property until after the automobile accident, in whu*h Mrs. Talbot gave her name as Mrs. Orville Harrold.

Take a careful inventory and see if you really ever forgot to do the thing you were really asked and really intended to do. Isn"t it a fact that you failed to do it when you should have done it? when you thought of It?
