A Beuton County man, who was in Sedalia Wednesday, is anthorit for the following snake story guar anted true from start to finish Down in Benton Comity there is a little 'crossroads postofflce and store kept by a woman. The store is locely, and the woman lives in two rooms at the rear, with o »ly her little grandson for company. Early the past summer the wom an, going to the *pi ingh'uise where she keeps her milk, found a suake coiled by the spring She attempted t) kill the reptile, but the littie grandson pleade I fcv the snake’s life. “It’s a king snake,” he beg ged; “they dou’t do no harm. Aud he’s so preity-^don’t kill him, graudma.” And the woman let the snake glide away unpunish ed. If ever a suake teturned good for evu,that snake, or his twin bro ther, surely did One uiglit last week the old lady and the little grandson were awakened by some one moving around the store. Trembliug with fear, the woman crept to the door and peeped through luto the store, mere was a streak of light across the floor. and by the safe where the post office fuuds a'-e kept a man stopped as if trying the combination. The old lady was afraid to veutnre into the room. She had no weapon of any sort. The burglar presently turned the knob and the door of the safe opened slowly at the touch of his fingers. The old lady watched as he searched the safe for the funds. And tbeu, all at once, some thing happened A sinuous body crawled over the top of the safe and hung suspended over the rob ber, its bead moving from side to side, with the sickening motion that a Buako’s head has. It was a big king snake. The burglar, in tent upon his work, did not see the snake. But the snake saw the butgiar. King snakes are harm less, so this snak* probably did not intend striking the intruder. He may have looked npou the man merely as a safe step fiom the safe to the floor. At alleveuts, the r-quirming reptile hung for h moiueu' over the t-dge of the safe and then slipped to the man’s shoulder The burglar lifted his hand to brush away the insect, as he may havn supposed, that had fallen oti Iiih coat. His fiDgets came in contact with the snake’s slimy b dy, Htid he snatched back his hand, his Augers closing around the make and throwing it to the floor. As he saw the suake he let loose a yell that would have aronstd the dead. He arose without ceremony and depar^d i. such liHt-re that h< left his of felt hat, hi lantern and Ho* ruffle funds,—Sedalia Capital For Sale. 6o Acres Land four miles north oi Plantersville, Miss.

Are Mor* Numerous Than Supposed in All Walks of Life. “Have you ever thought about the one-legged man, how numer ous he is, what he dors for a liveli hood?” asked an observant mao of a Philadelphia Bulletin deport pr. “Well, I suppose f'.ju feare without paying much atterttcn to what you were thinkic^ about. You will find many nu>n who are thus afflicted quite .is well off in , the affairs of the world as men who still retain both their lower limbs. Many of the brave soldiers who took part in the little skir mish of the 'OOs left the fighting with one leg, or they were wound ed in such a way that they lost the I limb afterward because amputa tion became necessary. Frequent ! ly rliis condition confronted the i wounded soldier many years after ! the war. So there are many one legged men who are prominent in all the professions and in all the business affairs of the country. “But I was thinking of another class of men, men who are not, for one reason and another, fitted for the more responsible positions in life, the class of men who perforce fall into the most convenient grooves for the aims and respon sibilities which beset them. He is a bootblack now and then, and we find him lounging on the corner, waiting for some good customer who will give him the usual allow ance for a shine. Sometimes we will find him at other things which do not require too much ‘leg work,’ as the saying goes. But I had in mind a still more curious fact iu ; _A. 1 II! e At vvuut.uiivfu miiu iuc vailing ui lilt" one-legged man. Did you know that fully 90 per cent, of the rail road flagmen in the United Stales are one-legged men? Did you know that fully 90 per cent, of the men who sweep out the grooves, and who grease them, at the curves on street railway lines are one-legged men? It is a fact, whether you know it or not, and a little closer observation will convince you of it. So you find the one-legged man at crossing of the roads, and your life is often in his hands. If he naps he may whiff your caudle out. Or if he should give a false signal for some reason something might happen to a whole trainload of peo plt. So true is it that the one log ged man is the flagman that in ail the plays where it has been neces sary to introduce him the flagman is one-legged. The verdict of the stage is not always good, but in Ibis respect I am inclined to think that no mistake has been made. So, after all, the one-legged man plays an important and responsi ble part in the affairs of the world.” THE LOVE OF WOMEN. As Much of a Mystery as the Stars That Shine. Who shall fathom a woman's heart or measure the depths of her love? She is angelic in her charity and divine in her forgiveness—• where man is concerned. Recent ly, says the Nashville American, in Chicago a woman appeared at the city jail with a basket of del icacies, which she requested should be sent to one of the pris oners. One of her arms was in a sling, for it had been broken by a blow from a club. Her bead was encircled by a bandage which cov ered one eye which had been bruised by a fist. There were many contusions on her body, she was suffering great pain and was nhle tn walk hv reason of %r •> the cruel beating she had received. But iu spite of all this she had pre pared the basket of dainty edible.> and brought it from her home in the suburbs to the jail for her hus band—the brute who had beaten her so cruelly. She was distressed at the thought that he had noth ing to eat but the coarse prison fare, therefore she prepared for him those things she . knew he would like. He was her husband and all the cruel and brutal treatment she had received from him had no( slain in her heart the love he had iwakened there in* the happy, hopeful days that a woman never forgets. He was a brute, of lourse, and she—well, many would lay she was very foolish. Perhaps to; who shall say? Being some :hing of a man and therefore some hing of a brute, we do not feel :ompetent tb at* as a juror in such i case as this. The merits and re inements of’it are beyond us—as nuch of a mystery ds that of the itars which illumine the night. Notice to Merchants.
