Wlren John Wanted the Ring lt~Wai In Hl Sock. / , John Jenkinson would not have ex changed situations with the prime fliln is tec, the prince of Wales or the dtum niajor of a brass band. Felicia Wilkins had answered "Yes" * n a voice as soft and gentle as the sigh of music In a dreamless sleep oi the murmuring wail of a caressing breeze from lelhean waters soothingly tanning the whiskers of Father Time. Felicit Wilkins,” he exclaimed rap turously, as his left hand and arm disappeared from sight with a rapid yet sneaking motion toward the back of the sofa on which they sat, and the fingers of his right hand appear ed to be feeling for something in his vest pocket, “you have made me the happiest man in the world.” The timid, upturned glance of her liquid dark eyes, says Tit-Bits, and the warm blush that overspread the happy face of the lovely girl replied more eloquently than words could have done,” “And you will forgive my presump tion, darling,” he continued, ‘‘if, in an ticipation of your answer, 1 have ven tured to provide myself with —with — a—with a—” Jenkinson paused in some apparent excitement, and his finger and thumb nervously explored his vest pocket without seeming to find anything. “I—l must have lost it!” he gasped. “Felicia, it was a ring! Ha! Perhaps it is in some other pocket.” Rising to his feet he thrust a trembling hand into his trousers pocket. There was a hole In that pocket. “John,” said Felicia, as she noted with concern his ghastly face, on which the light of a desperate resolve was breaking, “don’t grieve over it. It will turn up. You are excited. Is there any thing I can and “Yes,” exclaimed John, in a hollow voice. “Felicia, I think I know’ where that ring is. If you would do me a favor I shall never forget until the last hour of my life, get me a shoe horn and leave me to myself for a few moments.” Talked Them Into Prison. “About 30 years ago Henry Clay Dean, the eccentric Missouri lawyer and orator, was attending a term of court at which I was defending a man on a pretty serious charge,” said Judge Risdon of Kirksville the other day to a Kansas City Star writer. “Two horse thieves that were in jail sent for Dean. He took their case, and after looking at it from all sides concluded the best thing for them to do was to plead guilty and take two years each. “His men balked at the idea of pleading guilty. He told them that the penitentiary wasn’t a bad sort of place; he had been all through it and knew’. ‘The warden —a personal friend of mine—is one of the kindest men that ever lived/ said Dean; ‘he never you work when you are tired; and when you are sick he always looks after you like a mother. You get roast beef and brown bread every day, and pie and turkey on Sunday. Why, when Bill Jenkins —you boys know Bill —used to run a little sawmill over in the corner of Putnam county, they sent him up for —er —borrowing corn. When he went there he didn’t weigh over a hundred and thirty pounds, reg ular skin and bones, and in six months he weighed 300 pounds avoirdupois, and was made captain of the guard— just getting along fine; said he wouldn’t swap his job for any other in Missouri and wrote his folks to come down and live with him. The prison can’t hurt anything but your reputation and what does a fellow who’s been stealing care about repu tations, anyway?’ “The two horse thieves by this time were dead anxious to plead guilty and begin life in the pen. More than that, all the other fellows in the jail who had hemrd Dean’s talk insisted on pleading guilty and going along.” Her Money Raising Scheme. “Now, dear,” said the red-cheeked man to his wife, “I am going to have a little poker game Wednesday night. My friend and his w r ife are expert players. I don’t want you to distract me,” “I won’t,” said she. “I’ll sit by a little table ’way off yonder and trim my hat.” “That’s what you can do,” he assent ed; “sit ’way off yonder and tjim your hat. Don’t come and stand back of me and say: ‘Oh, what a lovely hand you’ve got! Where did you get all those aces?’ Or; ‘My, but all your cards are red, diamonds, only that spade!’ Don’t do that.” You hear? But, above all, please, if I should hap pen* to win a pile of money, don’t reach out and grab a handful and run off laughing about it. Don’t do that, will you? That isn’t funny. It isn’t funny at all.” “I’ll try not to,” she promised, “but you know, dear, that is the only way I can get any money out of you. Make yon let me have it before company. And then,” after a moment of thought, “you borrow it back the minute they leave.” RThe Kind Yon Have Always Bought, and which has been in use for over 30 years, has borne the signature of j*, —and has been made under his per /7* fional snpervlsion since its infancy# /‘C&4CA4A& Allow no one to deceive you in this# All Counterfeits, Imitations and Experiments that trifle with and endanger the health of Infants and Children—Experience against Experiment# What Is CASTORIA Castoria Is a harmless substitute for Castor Oil, Pare tic, Drops and Soothing Syrups.
