Stove Economy
One of the easiest methods of
saving money is in using a good
stove. A good stove burns less
coal for the required amount of
heat. A good stove keeps the
home warm in the coldest weather
thus preventing colds and sickness
thereby saving doctors bills.

Sorrows of an Author.
Many of the sorrows of the author
in this living present are quite as ac
tive as 150 years ago when William
Oldys lived and died in London. The
"blue pencil" was as remorseless then
though under some name now forgot
ten. Oldys tells how ho wrote some
valuable article of nearly two sheets
and how the bookseller, "for sordid
gain and to save a little expense
print paper, got Mr. John Campbell to
cross it and cramp it, and play the
devil with it, till he squeezed it into
less compass than a sheet." The book
borrower of that time was the same
neglectful person that many of
know today, and Oldys sighs ov
books he has lent which have nev
been returned. He was a keen anti
quary, delighting especially in musty
manuscripts, and, half in temper and
half in good humor, tells of "Old Coun
selor Fane, who gave me a parcel
manuscript and promised me others,
which lie never gave me nor anything
else besides a barrel of oysters."

One night John Arbuckle, while
peacefully sleeping in his home, sur
rounded by his family—a wife and sev
eral little children—was awakened by
a loud rap at his door. Going down
stairs, he opened the door and by the
light of a full moon saw a dozen men,
each man covering him with a re

Bowles?" asked the spokesman.
"I don't know. He left me without a
word as to where he was going or
"That story won't go down with us.
You were heard the day before he dis
appeared to accuse him of robbing
"I did not accuse him of any such
thing. He was my bookkeeper, sales
man .and general utility man. He bad
so much to do that he got tlie books
into a muddle. I was vexed and told
him that he might as well have robbed
me. As I said the two last words Cy
Jenkins came into the store and heard
them and saw me looking angrily at
Tom. Afterward I apologized to Tom,
and he seemed perfectly satisfied. The
next day he disappeared."
"Very plausible," replied the spokes
man. "IIow do you account for blooil
on a towel found in' Bowles' room?"
"There's nothing in that. Bowles
was cutting some meat for a customer
and the knife struck his finger. He
went to his room to stanch the blood."
"John Arbuckle, your explanations
are mighty thin. You were heard ac
cusing Tom Bowles of having robbed
you. The next day lie disappeared
without a word of information as to
where he was going. If you was in
the eastern country where such cases
as yourn drag along for months, you'd
probably get a lawyer who would
prove that you never saw Bowles. In
this country we take things as they
are there ain't no lawyers to throw
dust in our eyes. Come along."

By this time Mrs. Arbuckle and the
children had come downstairs and
despite their clinging to the husband
and father he was hurried away.
"I'll make you men pay for this," he
said. "Every one of you."
"You'll have to come back from

They took their prisoner to a tree
and were about to hang him when a
man rode by and asked what was the
charge against him. When told he
said that about the time indicated he
had met Bowles early one morning
walking on a road leading southward.
The informant couldn't remember the
date, but he judged it was about a
month before.
The committee had started In to
hang a murderer and did not relish be
ing turned from their purpose, but
several of their members insisted on an
investigation of Bowles having been
seen going southward and after a long
dispute it was determined to put him
in jail till this could be done. He was
therefore lodged in a cell and the com
mittee went home to bed.
One would naturally suppose that
these men who considered that justice
rested on their shoulders would have
taken the pains to Rend out in the di
rection Bowles had been seen going to
make Inquiries for hm. But while
they made it their business to dispense
justice and gloried that there were no
lawyers in the territory to delay them
in doing so, no one of them seemed to
consider it his business to hunt up
the missing man. A. week after they
were bent on hanging Arbuckle they
had so far cooled as to take very little
interest in his case.
However, Mrs. Arbuckle placed her
children in the care of a friend and,
without announcing her intention,
started out to hunt for the missing
victim. She spent a good deal of time
in her quest without immediate re
sult After being away from her little
ones as long as she felt it practicable
to leave them, she returned, bitterly

Time passed. There was no trace of
Bowles, but the thoughts of the vigi
lance committee had been turned into
other channels and no movement was
made to excute Arbuckle. Six months
he remained in jail and would proba
bly have remained till the crack of
doom had not a court been organized
to take the dispensation of justice out
of the hands of a self constituted com
mittee. When this occurred the prison
er's case was lotted into, and since
there was not sufficient evidence
against him to warrant his trial he
was discharged.
A few days later Bowles, accom
panied by a wife, turned up, happy in
being a bridegroom. He. had been
turned down by the bride, but she had
relented and given him hope. He had
gone for her, but being a modest man
and fearing further disappointment
had kept the reason for his going to

buckle availed himself of the newly
established court to bring suit for dam
ages for false imprisonment against
every one of the committee. Most of
them had some means, and Arbuckle
curned everything he had into money
to pay his lawyers. Arbuckle won his
suit and received a round sum from
each and all who were able to pay.
Those who were not able to pay he
kept in jail two days for every one he
had spent there himself.
Such was the ignominio.is end of the
vigilance committee and the beginning
of court law in western city.
Tendency Is What Counts.
Of course there can be no such thing
as perfection in this vale of tears, but
the man who turns his buck upon it on
that account hasn't good common sense.
The man who is low down and tending
upward is nearer perfection than the
man who is high up and tending down
ward. Tendency is the profoundest fact
in life—in religion, education, society,
politics. When an astronomer sees a
for the first itTae he will ascer
tain its direction, even if lis peogwsss
is only a minute or two, and will de
scribe its course among the stars for
weeks ahead. He simply studies the
(endeney, and one can tell where a
man will be ten years from now by
the same sort of mathematics. That
tendency may roach human perfection
if it is started right and the direction
maintained.—Ohio State Journal.
An Early Ironclad.
Many people imagine that the first
armored ship was the "iron cased frig
ate" Gloria, launched for the French
navy In 1857, yet, according to the Pop
ular Science Monthly, the Dutch built
an armored vessel nearly 300 years ear
lier. That was in 15S5, when Antwerp
was besieged by the Spaniards. The
Dutch took one of their biggest ships,
cut her down and erected on the deck
a battery with armored and sloping
sides, within which they mounted eight
of the heaviest guns the factories of
the day could produce. The roof of
the battery formed an armored breast
work for men armed with crossbows
and shotguns, and there were gratings
in the roof to provide ventilation for
the battery below. A contemporary
picture of the Finis Belli, as she was
called, bears a striking resemblance to
the Merrlmac, which was designed and
built on precisely the same principles.
Sentenced to Attend Church.
Gallon, O. Mayor Biehl recently
sentenced Sylvester Shade, found
guilty of stealing two dollars' worth
of brass from a traction company, to
three years in the workhouse and a
fine of $50, but remitted the sentence
if Shade keeps clean, sober and at
tends church at least once a Sunday.
