HIS INDIGNATION. Only h Brute Would Let a Woman Stand In n Car. The rushed man of affairs Jumped on tin* car. The passenger next to the doer got off, and he made a (live for the vacated seat, never once casting evea a gla-uce at the half dozen women clinging desperately to the straps as they were Jerked this way and yank ed that, lie hid himself behind his paper, mnl all things else sank Into complete oblivion so far as the man of affairs was concerned. It mattered nothing to'him whether the woman in front of him sighed as her tired hands clung to the strap over his head with grim determination. She could have stood there forever, and the man would ncvor have a much as turned a pity ing glance upon her. "Well, my dear, are you tired to night'/" asked the wife of the man of affairs as they seated themselves at dinner. "Oh, no, not especially." "Well, I am tired—Just tired out to night." "Been overdoing It again, I suppose. You must be more careful. Avoid all uiic<Mftwanr exertion, my dear, or we will have v a doctor's bill." "I bad such a trying experience to day. A man made me stand up In the war for 20 blocks. My hands were all cramped and tired, and I was nearly dead. Such men should be ashamed of themselves." "Oh, you And such people every where. Only a brute would let a wo man stand in a car," indignantly ob served the man of affairs. "Did yen find the paper Interesting?" she Inquired sweetly.—New York Sun. A Mimical Diversion.

THROWING OFF THE YOKE. The IlrNolnt lon In rngrei Thnt Led to Our Independence. I It was on June 7, 177(1, tlmt the dele i gates from the colonies sitting in congress in Philadelphia considered the following resolution introduced by Virginia's states- I man, Richard Henry Pee: Resolved, That the United States colonies arc and ought to be free, and independent states, and their political connection with Great Britain Is and ought to be dissolved. The resolution was indorsed by the majority of one. Thirteen colonies were represented. Because seven of them vot j cd and stood for independence the Unit- I ed States is today what she is. Subse quent developments prove that had the , action taken been delayed the question of | independence might have slept in peace until the herald of the people, no one knows how many years after, sounded the tocsin of revolution. The delegates thought it wise to defer the question of final consideration to July 1, 177(1, by which time they believed there might be a more unitbd feeling among the people. I Thus it was that on June 11 that fa- I mous committee was appointed to frame i the Declaration of Independence. Note I the names, and if you are a student of i the history of the United States conceive I if you can of a better quintet t<> have rop j resented the American people: Benjamin I Franklin, John Adams, Thomas Joffer j son, Roger Sherman, Robert R. Living ston. The first was the man whose fame is ticked into our ears every time we hear a telegraph instrument, whose genius is placed in broad light whenever we enjoy , the illumination of electricity. The sec | ond rose to be president of the nation he i helped to form. The third is tlie father of j what the world knows as Joffersonian de mocracy. The fourth, Puritan, patriot, leader, gave more in moral force and de- I termination, in knowledge of the law and its common sense principles than almost i any man who assisted at the birth of the i nation. The fifth was a man of whom i the majority of people know comparative i ly little, and yet there was none who bet- I ter deserved a place of honor in the pub i lie mind. Eminent as a financier, a 1 shrewd judge of human nature, his touch 1 on the helm of state was exactly what I was needed to keep the young craft on j her course. —Detroit Free l'ress. Our Country** Flag. ! The idea of expressing (he union of the different colonies by stripes in a flag I became familiar to every one very early I in the history of the Revolutionary war. I and in 1775 and 1770 flags were used I hearing 13 stripes; hut the first legally established national emblem was that adopted by congress June 14. 1777, which provided thnt the flag of the 13 United States should be 13 stripes, alternately red and white, and the union of 13 stars, ! white in a blue field. This form was al- J tered by act of Jan. 13, 1704, which pro ! vided that after May 1, 1705, the flag of the United States should consist of | 15 stripes, alternately red and white, and 15 stars, white in a blue field. In I 1818, however, act of April 4, the flag : was restored to its original form of 13 ' horizontal stripes, alternately red and ! while, the union to consist of 20 stars, white in a blue field, one star to he add ed to the union on the admission of ev ery new state, the addition to he made on July 4 following such admission. This flag went into effect July 4. 1818, and is the presort prescribed national emblem of the United States of America.—Chicago Times-Herald. yjf *^~^w ©Veil B^te© l^luoodte^l MOSTLITTLK BABIES HIE, either from bowel troubles or trom diseases which they contract because they are in a weak and feeble condition from bowel troubles.

A YEAR AND A DAY I Like a white thread carelessly caught ' ou the dark skirts of an untidy wo ' man lay the dusty road across the I dun brown earth. One solitary trav eler alone gave a touch of life to the | deadly monotouy of a landscape made up of low sky and high hills, continual ly meeting and falling apart in endless undulations. From the earth itself arose the soft, shining shimmer of in tense heat, and through it, with a sort of automatie unconsciousness, plunged the figure whose gun and game bag be spoke the hunter—a hunter and a mighty man as well, whose broad shoulders, lithe limbs and lean, un handsome face bore the unmistakable stamp of breeding and refinement. For hours this man had tramped, ut terly lost to the discomforts of the present, in the intense pain of vivid retrospection, a retrospection suddenly interrupted by a spectacle of human misery as grewsome as it was pathetic. Quite alone, yet within the shadow of a hastily improvised shelter of bend ing boughs, lay the worn and wasted figure of a man, a man upon whose brow lay damp and cold a ghastly dew, whose limbs had already fallen into the absolute immobility of coming dis solution and whose passing life seemed caught and focused in wide opened, anguished eyes. Startled out of his long day dream, Serge Vernon knelt beside the sufferer, pressing his brandy flask to his lips. ( "Stranger," said he, "God sent you. I I am dying—dying with my work un- I done. Out yonder I've n daughter look | ing for water, a pretty girl and a good I one, raised a lady with her mother's people, but she left them all for me. I didn't ask It. At flirt I even tided to send her hack. Ranch life is hard on some women, but she loved it—loved everything—the dogs, the horses, the wild, free life that was glad and beau tiful to us both—until he came, a man, rich, handsome and educated like her self, a man whose speech was the speech of her own people and who i brought to his wooing all the subtle arts of civilization. I never thought of danger, never dreamed of treachery, until the black hearted scoundrel had gone—gone denying the private mar riage into which lie had entrapped her and flinging her shame in her face. What could I do hut follow and wipe out that shame In his heart's blood? Murder they called It; just Judgment 1 knew It, hut for her sake guarded well the secret that she has never guessed, that she must never know. But trou ble came of it and loss until now. when I must leave my poor girl penniless and alone In a strange land. They have of fered a reward for the murderer— sl,ooo for him alive or dead. The proofs are ail here," laying a purple hand across his laboring breast. "Stranger, she needs it. Will you get the money for my girl? When the end comes, she has promised to go home. Then find the murderer of Jim Kau nas and send the blood money to the woman who, before God, is his widow." Jim Kannls! Serge Vernon lived in that moment a year of misery—the long year since Stella Marsden had chosen between his love and his cousin's for j tune, tlie cousin who cared so little for the treasure won that he soon left it ; for a taste of pleasure and adventure lin the new world. All that he had found and deserved death as well. Lit tle liking the task, Serge had crossed the water, had learned the evil story of a wasted life, lived under a false name, ended in disguise and disgrace, had offered a reward for the apprehen sion of the murderer and had found lilni. There was a rustling among the wild ; rose buslu's, and, looking up. Serge saw them part above the head of a girl, tall, fair and like a rose herself. : Their perfume caught In her wind | blown liair, their bloom ou perfect lip and cheek, lip and cheek that paled at i sight of the dying man as, with a low j cry, she dropped beside him. i In the pocket of Serge's hunting shirt j lay a letter, a sweet and gracious ap , peal for forgiveness, written n.v nis j cousin's widow. The letter, that inorn ! ing received, hod been less a surprise than his own reception of the fact that ! she was no longer Inconsolable. Know lug the heights of sacrifice to which this guilty wayfarer had attained, see ing his paternal passion returned with absorbing filial affection, be realized tbat.the English girl, willing to sell her sordid soul for the Vernon title, was no longer his ideal of perfect womanhood. Suddenly, loud and clear, from the dying lips came the eager question, "Stranger, will you get that money for imy girl?" Sorgo Vernon bared his j head and lifted his hand. "As God is ! my witness," said he, *1 will." Before Serge Vernon and his wife were married she told him the story of her sinless shame, but he gave her no answering confidence. Today her fa ther sleeps in an honored grave, ami she In her happy English home has i won all hearts save that of the wid owed Lady Vernon. Serge himself dis- I courages any Intimacy between the two, feeling it to be unnatural and un wise. Whistle Ann In. "George, George, mind; your lint will 1 be blown oft if you lean so far out of i the window!" exclaimed a fond father to his little son who was traveling with him in a railway carriage. Quickly snatching the hat from the head of the refractory youngster, papa hid It be j hind his back. | "There, now, the hat has gone!" lie ! cried, pretending to be angry, and | George Immediately set lip a liowl. After a time the father remarked: : "Come, be quiet. If 1 whistle your bat will come back again." Then be whistled and replaced the hat oif the boy's head. "There. It's back again, you see." Afterward, while papa was talking to mamma, a small, shrill voice was heard saying: "Papa, papa, I've thrown my hat out :of the window! Whistle again, will 'you?" Jackie** LCRMOII, I It was Jackie's birthday, and lie was 0 years old. In the evening his Uncle I Fred, who was a soldier, came up into I the nursery to play with him and Bob ble, much to their delight. "I mean to be a soldier one day," said Jackie during the game. I "Ah, my little man, you've a lot of lessons to learn first of oil," replied I Uncle Fred, with a smile. ! "Come, Master Jack, It's bedtime," said nurse. : "I'm not coming yet, nurse," said i .Tackle, crossly. "Can't you see I'm busy?" "Do you know, my boy. that the first lesson a soldier has to learn Is to obey?" said Uncle Fred gravely. Jackie thought a minute, and then, like a good little boy, lie put away his playthings and said, "Good niglit." An Ennh' Tlint Finite* In n City.
