TB» winUt hours of resUess play are done.
Asa like a blossom at the set of sun
While ,viewless love.close vigil o'er It
The loving, laughing, winsome babyslieas:
The weapr feet how still In calm repose.
The cheeks like petals of a folded rose.
No longer do the mischief-loving hands
Leave traces like wild raids of bandit
Nor does the shrill Insistent baby voice
Bring blame from those its kindlier notes
No more its predatory footsteps roam
At once the pride and terror of the home.
Just now the tiny little form is still,
Cushioned In peace the stubborn childish
Its smile Is tranquil and its rest serene.
The placid center of this quiet scene
While birds sing softly on the neighbor
ing trees.
Which, lest they wake It, whisper to the
Flowers offer fragrance as they climb the
To peep at this fairest flower of all
And some bend o'er it In the restful gloom
Through which one sunbeam steals into
the room.
Its golden finger there to touch and trace
Heaven's benediction on the baby's face.
And so the baby sleeps In .gentle state,
A king, though poor and but a waif of
Sole heir of nothing, In a pauper home.
Yet underneath heaven's vast and mighty
Was nothing lovelier nor more precious
Than that-wee one within a coffin laid.
Horror Seven. Hours Long
An Exhibition of Cotirage by Teakee
lfT IS said," remarked the old
J, doctor, "that a person, can't
live and retain his senses in a
state of blind, animal terror for
more than a very few minutes at a time.
Either nature will take refuge in her
cyclone cellar, unconsciousness, and
the person will faint or the brain ten
sion will get beyond the snapping point
and he will become insane or the heart
will collapse under the strain, and
death will follow. Or any two or all
of these things may occur at once. So
say the authorities. I was of the same
opinion once, but I've known better for
a good many years, although I've never
seen a second case to disprove the rule.'
Did it ever occur to you when some
long-standing record of courage or en
durance, or the ability to bear pain has
been broken, how often it is a woman
that breaks it?
"This was a young woman, a New
England, school-teacher by the name of
Mildred Wicks. She had been invited to
pay a visit to two elderly maiden
aunts who lived on the outskirts of an
old town in the central part of Vir
ginia, where I began the practice of
medicine. The house was one of those
three-storied southern colonial struc
tures with broad verandas and fluted
columns the entire height of the front.
From the left, in the rear, there extend
ed a considerable wing which, in some
former period of prosperity, had been
given over to the guest chambers, but
which now for years1 had been little
"By some misunderstanding the
young woman arrived just a week ear
lier than she was expected, to find her
aunt's house in the midst of prepara
tory housecleaning. It consequently
became necessary, until the room in
the main part of the house could be
prepared for her to put her in one of
the wing chambers, and in one of these,
on. the third floor, she was duly in
stalled. It was one of those enormous,
high-studded rooms that have entirely
gone out of fashion nowadays, even in
large houses. There was a great fire
place in it and solid mahogany furni
ture of a somber, old-fashioned type.
"The elderly aunts were eomewhat
apprehensive lest the remoteness and
long disuse of the chamber might cause
their niece some uneasiness, but she
was a healthy young person not given
to nervousness, and scoffed at the idea.
It was arranged, nevertheless, that the
housekeeper, who ordinarily slept in
the main division of the house, should
occupy, that night, a chamber adjoin
ing the visitor's for the sake of com
"At bedtime, however, an unexpected
difficulty arose. It was suddenly re
membered that the keys to both the
young woman's and the housekeeper's
chamber had been missing for a num
ber of years, and the doors were also
unprovided with inside bolts. The only
duplicate keys were in the housekeep
er's bunch held together by a solid
brass ring, from which they could be
removed only by breaking or filing the
brass ring, leaving the young wom
an's door entirely unsecured was, of
course, not to be thought of. The
housekeeper finally proposed that- she
should lock the door for the night from
the outside, taking the keys with her
into her own room and unlocking it
again early in the morning. The win
dows of the chamber being three
stories from the ground there was no
possibility of intrusion from that
source, and should the housekeeper's
presence be needed at any time during
the night it needed only a few vigor
our raps on the wall to summon her.
The young woman found no objection
to this plan, and the housekeeer, after
bidding her good-night, went out and
locked the door after her.
"Left to herself, the young woman,
tired from her journey, losit no time in
undressing and getting into bed, and
once in bed it was a very few moments
until she was sound asleep. The next
she knew she found herself sitting up
staring out into the room. How long
she had been asleep she could not tell
hours, she thought, since there had
beep no moon when she had'gone to
bed and it now shone in her window
from well up in the sky.
"Then with a start it came to her
that she had not awakened naturally
that there had been some sort of a
noise. She peered around the room,
but could see nothing alarming, and,
save for the sound of the insects, the
night was as quiet as the grave. So
finally she lay down again and in a few
moments was half-way in a doze. Then
suddenly she found herself sitting up
•gain, her heart throbbing wildly.
Something was moving along the base
of the wall opposite her bed. As it
moved there came a series of gurgling,
sputtering, sterterou® sounds, exactly
as though some one was choking. The
young woman clutched the bed clothes
and tried to pierce the darkness. But
she could distinguish only the vague*
outline of a crouching form. The chok
ing, gurgling sounds, however, contin
ued, and then suddenly she heard tit
clank of a chain being dragged alone
the floor.:
'The thing reached the corner of tit
wall and .paused there for a moment
Then it emerged and began to creef
slowly along the base of the seeonc
wall, which would bring it within a
yard or two of the posit of the bed. Th«
young woman got as far as. to hei
knees and remained there watching it«
progress. There was no question oi
shrieking for help. She was locked It
with the thing, whatever it was, with
the key of her door somewhere in the
housekeeper's room, and the house
keeper asleep. She knew, too, without
trying that she could get no sound oul
of her throat.
"It6huffled down the second wall with
many pauses, but choking and gurgling
always. Once she thought it might bt
some sort of animal, but as it passed
near the moonlight at the windows sh«
saw that it was not* It had rather a
horridly grotesque resemblance to
man. Having reached the second cor
ner it began to move along .the thirc
wall straight toward the foot of the
bed. The young girl stumbled out a1
the head to the floor. The thing pullec
itself over upon the footboard and be
gan to search through the bedclothes
Finding nothing it tore the clothe:
with teeth and hands furiously. Th(
young woman watched the procesi
from half way down the wall. She triet
to think what would have happened tc
her had she failed to awake when sh
"By degrees it seemed to grow calm
er, and finally in turn crawled down
from the head of the bed. The young
woman- could not tell whether it saw
her or whether it could see. As it ap
proached, she moved softly along the
wall. When she reached the cornel
she proceeded down the next wall, the
thing following, until, with man
pauses, they had made the circuit ol
the room. Then the circuit was re
peated1. On this time round she heard
a dock in some distant part of the
house strike 12. The housekeeper ex
pected to call her about seven. Latei
she heard the same clock strike one.
Once she shuddered at the thought ol
fainting in the thing's path, but she
knew that she should not faint. She
thought of its leaving the wall and
making for her directly across tht
room, but it stuck closely to the base
board, feeling its way along. The dis
tant clock struck two. Then it seemed
to the young woman that the journeys
around' the room were being made a1
a slower rate. The thing paused often
er, and longer at a time. Finally it
must have stopped for a quarter of an
hour, only to creep on a yard, or twe
and stop again. After that it moved
no more. The young woman stood
watching half a dozen yards further
along the wall.
"In the morning the housekeeper un
locked the door, looked in, and prompt
ly fainted1 across the threshold. The
young woman still stood with hei
bands against the wall. She tiptoed
across to the housekeeper, dTagged hei
into the hall, locked' the door behind
her, and went swiftly downstairs. In
the sitting-room she came upon hei
aunts. When they saw her one of them
fainted as promptly as had the house
keeper upstairs. The other ran up tc
her screaming:
'Mildred, what has happened
"Then the young woman smiled and
began talking foolishness. They called
me in to see her within an hour. It
happened that I had seen her on her
arrival the afternoon before, a brown
eyed, dark-haired, beautiful girl. II
was small wondier, therefore, that I
was a bit shaky when I had. been
brought into the presence of my pa
tient. In one night her face had'been
seared and' furrowed as with the cares
and sorrows of three-quarters of a cen
tury, and her hair was as white as
snow. Incidentally she was suffering
from an ugly-looking case of brain
fever, and for two months reason, and
life itself, hung in a balance that would
have turned for a hair. But four
months later, when she went back
home under the care of her mother,
her mind was as good as it had ever
been, and the lines and furrows had
been rubbed out of her face, and the
plumpness and color of youth was re
turning fast. But her hair was never
anything else but white as snow.
"What was the thing in her room?
Nothing in the world but a horrible
example of public savagery and official
carelessness. There was a poor-farm
some eight miles from our town, and a
miserable pauper, having gone violent
ly insane, they knew nothing better to
do with him than chain him in an out
house and treat him like a dangerous
animal. You can imagine, or rather,
you can't imagine, the effect on both
•his personal appearance and on his dis
ease. One afternoon he escaped, carry
ing part of his chain with him, and in
his wanderings reached the elderly
aunt's house, which stood open in the
midst of house cleaning. Attracted by
the coolness inside he had crept up
into the old wing, where he had en
tered one of the chambers and hid
den in the great fireplace, and gone
to sleep. The light of the young wom
an's candle that night had roused him,
and his journeys round the wall were
mere.animal instinct searching for an
"They called for him the same morn
ing, and I saw the poor devil when they
found him lying up there in the room.
It is a solemn fact that his canines
projected an inch below his upper lip.
He didn't have on enough rags to cover
the backs of a man's two hands, and
his hair and beard and skin had been
indescribably misused, and the poor
wretch was in the last stages of con
sumption. But his night's adventure
proved not such a bad thing for him,
for he died two weeks later in compar
ative comfort. But the manager of
that poor-farm had no such easy exit
from the troubles which overtook him."

A Tough Citizen.
Jim Clark, arrested recently for
horse stealing at Elbow Woods on
the reservation, and brought to Minot
to be jailed, sawed the bars of his
cell last night with corset steels, and
assaulted Deputy Sheriff Thompson,
who slept in an adjoining room.
Clark struck the deputy with a large
glass inkstand in the toe of a stock

him senseless. The prisoner supposed
the deputy had the keys under his pil
low, where they usually were. The
keys were in his pants pocket and
Clark could not find them. Sheriff
Carroll heaird the fight and rescued
the deputy. Murderer Thorp and the
horse thief, Corey, made no out-cries.
The deputy is in bad shape, where
Clark choked him. Clark is a bad

Storm Does Much Damage.
A heavy electrical storm passed
over Sargent county with heavy winds
in some localities, followed by a rain
fall of over two inches, which did
great damage. Nichelson, on the Soo
road, reports 12 freight cars off the
track, the depot and a windmill blown
down. In Cogswell chimneys were
blown off many buildings, the depot
on the Soo road was blown off the
foundation, and several small build
ings were wrecked. At Towanda two
freight cars are off the track. The
Forman photograph gallery was
blown to pieces, and several small
buildings are down. Much damage to
grain is reported by farmers.
There is consternation in the camp
of the tilers of land in Wells county.
Some time ago a governmental official
from the land department was
through Wells county "spotting"
those who had not been living up to
the law regarding their residence, im
provements, etc., upon their land. A
few days ago papers were served upon
several in this county to the effect
that their rights to the land were
about to be canceled. In many cases
the land has been proved up, mort
gaged or sold, and the complications
of litigation which may arise from
this action are hard to determine.
Found Dead.
Geo. Hibbard, a farmer living three
miles southwest of Argusville, was
found dead in a well on his farm by
A. H. Scott, a neighbor. The well
was about 18 inches in diameter and
the body was found head downward,
thus giving the unfortunate man no
opportunity to save himself if he so
desired. It is hard to say whether it
was a case of accident or suicide. Mr.
Hibbard had been low spirited lately,
and his friends fear that he voluntar
ily committed the deed.

asked one question too many the other day.
Everyone interested in legal affairs knows
how the two millionaires have always con
sulted the same law firm because, their in
terests were identical, and that when the
split came this firm, of which Judge Reed,
president of the Lake Erie railroad, is the
head refused to take sides with either client
and that new attorneys had to be chosen.
Mr. Carnegie chose Mr.
Scott, a brilliant and
well-known Princeton alumnus of the class
of '69, says the Philadelphia Post.
On June 9, at the opening of Nassau's com
mencement, when Princeton took the base
ball championship from Yale and young
King Scott, Mr. Scott's son. had the nonor
of being substitute pitcher for Hildebrand,
Mr. Scott was among the favored guests.
Mr. Scott is fond of getting evidence from
and when a freshman who idolized
ing Scott eame up to shake hands with the
father after the game Mr. Scott asked him
what he thought was the best thing in col
lege life.
Athletics, sir." was the freshman's eager
answer. "It's the greatest thing of all. It
does a fellow no end of good."
"And why athletics? insisted Mr. Scott.
"Well, sir," was the answer, "it's just this
way: I guess you were a good student here,
Mr. Scott, and read a heap of books—but
nobody has ever heard of you, and the whole
world knows about King."

house had been purchased in a good neigh

in furnishing it. When she reached the
item of mattresses she went to a .big depart

known her wants to a polite salesman. "I
presume, madam," he said, "that you waut
the best spring mattresses." "Not at all,"
was the quick retort. "You needn't think
because I rich I'm easy. A spring mat
tress, indeed! Sure, I want mattresses you
can use in spring, summer, autumn and
winter. Fm not buying a mattress for every
season in the year/'—Philadelphia Call.
