Elo quence?" asked Detective Lee Killian, of St. Louis. "Well, that's what Chung Lee did, and he wasn't elo qu«it, for he did it in pidgin English. "And what's more, Lee had seen the man only once, and then only for a minute, and he carried the mental picture of him three days before giv ing it to me. And besides, he was just an ordinary man, neither thin nor fat, short nor tall had no distinguish ing mark at all. That's why I say Chung Lee is a wonder." In St. Louis they call Killian fa ther confessor to'the Chinese because they tell him their secrets. The secret of his success with the Chinese is that his given name is Lee, a name common among the Chinese. The Chinese are fond of their cousins. They call Killian Cousin Lee. St. Louis has many opium' joints which the police do not molest. Near ly all pickpockets, confidence men and the like are opium fiends. Soon er or later a wanted crook is going to turn up at his favorite joint. There fore all the detectives have to do to find a criminal is to watch the joints and keep in with the proprietors. "For several weeks," said Killian, "we had known that some one was passing queer dollar bills. The secret service people had asked me to help them find him. "It was on a Sunday that I dropped in on Chung Lee. He showed me a dollar bill—a counterfeit. He had taken it in on the Thursday before from a white man who had bought a half-tin of opium for $1.20, giving the bill and two good dimes. "The man had come in the evening and Lee had waited on him. It was a busy evening and other customers were waiting, for Lee sells tea and many other "things besides opium. 'Lee,' I said, 'let's you and me go into the back room and have a talk all the same heart to heart.' "Lee said, 'All lite/ and we went back, shut the door and sat down. I said: 'Lee, if necessary we're going to stay right here until to-morrow morn ing. There's lots of time. Now you begin and tell me just what that fel low looked like. Take all tlie time you need. Don't miss anything.' "Lee began. The man was exactly five feet seven. Lee knew this be cause his head had grazed a string of lingee nuts hanging from the ceil ing. The lingee nuts were just five feet seven from the floor. But that couldn't help me much too many men are five feet seven. "Well, the man weighed about 150 pounds. A very common weight. His hair was short and 3andy. This hair grew low down over his neck, which was reddish and-freckled. He was smooth faced and inclined to be florid. "All this described a commonplace man. Lee jras having a hard time with his English. There were things he wanted to say, but didn't know how. "At first I was discouraged, but, bless you, Lee had only begun. And I want to say right here that the Chinese are the most persistent peo ple in the world,-as well as the most observing. "The man's lips were dry and the upper lip was cracked deeply. The inner corner of the left hand front tooth was broken off. The chin w.s square, heavy and somewhat cleft. "Lee now had the job well in hand. By comparisons with his own nose and mine he made me understand the exact shape of the nose of the man I was looking for. "His eyes were blue, and the lower lids were almost bare of lashes. Eyes, mouth and hands had tricks which had not escaped Lee. When he couldn't describe these he acted them out. "The mental picture was growing. It was not an Impressionistic picture, but done In detail, and no detail was too small to escape Lee's notice. In my mind I could see the man. "I had told Lee we might have to sit there all night, but we didn't. At the end of exactly three hours and 15 minutes the picture was complete. In judging Lee as an artist, remember that this was a portrait and that he had seen the original three days be fore, and that he had seen a few hun dred people since. "Lee's shop is in Hop alley, which parallels Market street. I left him, crossed to Market street and strolled west toward.the Union depot, just ten blocks. The' sidewalk was pretty well crowded, so much so that In front of the Union depot I had to elbow my way. "It is my habit to study faces. Sud denly I saw a face which made me start. It was the exact duplicate of the mental picture which Chung Lee had painted. There was no more chance ol there being a mistake than there is ct the Bertillon system being mistaken. "Involuntarily my hand went out and grasped the man's collar. 'I want you/ I said. "He pleaded guilty In the district court. He proved to be Reddy Has klns, who, though unknown to me at the time, is a counterfeiter of reputa tion. He Is still doing time at Jef ferson City." ORIGIN OF A FAMOUS PHRASE The night on which the Kentuck lans handed, the stirrup cup to Mr. Watterson, the well-known Kentucky editor, in New York, on the eve of his going away to Spain, some good sto ries were told in the nooks of the dining-room before and after the reg ular program. This one was listened to with much interest: "You Kentuckians," said a guest from Georgia, "have heard all your lives about that remark which the governor of North Carolina received from the governor of South Carolina. The story has been passed down from one generation to another, each gen eration believing in the tradition a little more than the previous one. "Well, fellow colonels, I was down in the Palmetto state a few weeks ago, and while I was enjoying the hospital ity of a kinsman of Wade Hampton he assured me one evening, while we were indulging in the conviviality characteristic of a southern home, that the story was a fact. I am going to tell you what he said as well as I can recall it, trusting to your charity to make due allowances for lapses which events of this sort entail. "A governor of South Carolina was the guest of a governor of North Caro lina. The latter, in honor of his guest, had prepared a Tarheel dinner. That is to say, bacon and yam were the great temptations. "After the' feast the Tarheel execu tive invited his Palmetto guest to have a pipe on the veranda of the mansion. Between the two big chairs a capacious demijohn was placed. It was filled with corn copper distilled whisky from a North Carolina re tort. "As often as ihe .pipes were i-efilled the demijohn was tilted and the liquid gurgled into a gourd. This the North Carolina governor handed to the executive from South Carolina, who drank off to the half way mark and handed the gourd to his host, who finished it. "I was even told the main topic of conversation between the governors. It was the turpentine of one state and the rice of the other state. The governor of South Carolina, said my host, was a large man and full of pores. Such a man can drink a thin man to a finish any day. The liquor exudes as last as it is swat lowed. "So the South Carolina executive was in a fresh condition most of the time. The -Tarheel executive knew his weakness and began to 'nig' on his gourd early, and in doing so he ladled out about three drinks to the Palmet to man to one for himself. "But, gentlemen-—I mean colonels— the'North Carolina governor, in spite of his caution and in spite of his com putation as to the capacity of his guest, was the first to be overcome. His pipe fell from his lips. He ca reened in his great chair and fell asleep. "The governor of South Carolina was too polite a man to notice the somnolent condition of his host. Con tinuing his argument on the staple product of his state, he held his gourd near the mouth of the demijohn, which had run dry, and finally, noticing that the gourd was not as moist as it should be, thcgovernor of South Caro lina cut out his remarks on staple products and asked abruptly: "'Governor, don't JJOU think It's a d—d long time between drinks?' "The governor of North Carolina slept, on. His faithful body servant, hearing the inquiry of his excellency from South Carolina, and not wanting to be chagrined by the failure of his master to extend his great hospitality, slipped off the edge of the veranda and took to the woods. "The governor of South Carolina, noticing the continued absence of lan guage from his host, and also noticing the decamping of the servant, likewise having tapped the demijohn and find ing it like a last year's bird nest, slowly rose, ]^id aside the gourd, ambled to the stile block, mounted his charger and rode away. It is said that his horse never hesitated until he bore his master across the state line. "Then the governor of South Caro lina looked back and shook his gaunt let in the direction whence he had come.. When the governor of North Carolina came out of his. comatose condition and realizing his humilia tion he broke the demijohn and smashed the gourd. "You have heard of the young Eng lish prince who was lost at sea, and how the king when he heard of it never smiled again? My host in South Carolina assured me that the poem originally referred to the governor of North Carolina, the poem as first writ ten beginning: "The jug that held the rye ran dry, The gourd was scorched within, The Tarheel gov'nor woke too late: He never smiled agin." People Eat Too Much. Medical science declares that prac tically seven-eighths of our ills are due to over-feeding. Colds in the head are often due to eating too much. It may be claimed that our well spread boards are meager compared to those of our .ancestors. Probably, but our ancestors were hardy and able to throw off the effects of a hearty meal. We do not take into considera tion the great difference between their life and ours. As it is, we eat alto gether too much food for our health and comfort, and the fashionable rem edy for most ailments is semi-.starva tion for a period of varying lengths.

She scalds it thoroughly after using, and gives it a sun bath to sweeten it. She knows that if her churn is sour it will taint the butter that is made in it. The stomach is a churn. In the stomach and digestive and nutritive tracts are performed pro cesses which are almost exactly like the churning of butter. Is it not apparent then that if this stomach-churn is foul it makes foul all which is put into it? The evil of a foul stomach is not alone the bad tiaste in the mouth and the foul breath caused by it, but the corruption of the pure current of blood and the dissemination of disease throughout the body. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery makes the sour and fcbul stomach sweet. It does for the stomach what the washing and sun bath do for the churn—absolutely removes every tainting or corrupting element. In this way it cures blotches, pimples, eruptions, scrofulous swellings, sores, or open eating ulcers and all humors or diseases arising from bad blood. Wauwatosa. Wisconsin. W.
