"1 don't think about sucah things." eror am s ore go to war is declared you will know it before it is made pub 11c." "Why do you think that?" "Because I have been told that be. fore going to war the emperor must know how the other powers will actl and your government is now one of the powers. The American minister?" will be able to judge if there is to be war and will know it beform his government. pub What he knows you know." "ornB y smIled without making any reply. The laotherdy spoke of other mat. ters and finally said: "I presme all mportant dispatches of are in cipher." "They are." "What is the word for'war' in your cipher code?"' "Oh, it wouldn't do for me to tell you that." "Please tell me that one word. I'll not divulge It." "Well. on your promise, I'll tell you. It is 'woman.' " "Good gracious! Why was that word chosen?" "I don't know. I didn't make the code." "And what Is the word for 'peace?' " "'Man.' " "Upon my word! I should have sup posed those two words would have t been reversed." "Perhaps that's the reason of their use as they are. They are not so1 easily deciphered." Mme. Berthalow looked up into the young man's face. It was as guile- I less as a May morning. She continued her investigations. "Our family have an old claim against the United States. dating back a hundred years or more, for a vessel owned by my great-grandfather, de- I stroyed by an American privateer. I should like you to advise me concern ing it" "I shall be happy to do so.., I am at my office from 11 to 6 every day, where it will be proper for you to call." This was not satisfactory to Mme. Berthalow. She would have pre ferred to have the young man cal upon her where she could talk with him in secret, but on second thought she considered that there would be an advantage in goldg to his olile. She might light on some information not intended for her. The next day at 12 o'clock she appeared at the legation. "Ah, madame," Hornby said. "we are very busy today, and I fear I shall have to keep you waiting. If you will go into nay private office for awhile I shall be happy to advise you presently concerning your claim." He ushered her into a cozy room in the center of which stood a table with writing materials and papers scattered about. Mmine. Berthalow, being alone in the room, made a hurried examina tion of the papers. One of them bore evidence of having Just been written. It was marked to be sent by cable to the secretary of state at Washington. The lady eagerly seized it and ran her eye over it. There was a jumble of words the meaning of which was un intelligible to her, but she noticed scat tered throughout the dispatch the word "woman." It occurred five times. She had all the time she needed for the ex amination-indeed, more than she wished, for she was anxious to get away that she might impart the Infor mation to her husband that there was to be war. Presently Hornby came in and in formed her that be was ready to listen to the matter of her claim. She told him she had left home without hav ing locked up the jewels she had worn the night before and must return at once. Hornby gave her one of his en gaging smiles and saw her to her car rlage. When Hornby returned to his offce he threw the cipher telegram into the wastebasket and wrote one to a broker In Paris announcing that a prominent financier would probably "sell the market."

Thie idea occurr.d to Mr. Dlavis that these mails could be listribuited while in transit. It seem d to him in every way possible and desirable. So he wrote to the people in Washington for authority to tit up some cars on the Hannibal & St. Joseph railroad to try out the experiment. The authority camne and Mr. Davis went to the rail way headquarters at Hannibal and su l.erintended the arrangement of sev eral way cars with pigeon holes, doors, windows and other conveniences andt the initial run with a carload of nmal was made from Hannibal to St. Joseph In record time, the mails properly dis tributed and ready for the overland stages, couriers, etc. The first trial was so satisfactory that other cars were brought into re quisition and soon a most remarkable change for the better was made in the receipt and distribuation of malls. The reat railwayailwmil service had been insugarated! The problem of forwarding overland malls without delay wa solved, and wr.

Extra windows were arranged and the "dlans tributorh" used candles to assist in lghting the cars. Mr. Davis made a trip on the frst car as far as Palmyra, Mc., and then left the work with an as wlstant while he returned to Hannibal for the second car. There are many old railroaders yet alive who remem ber the first mail cars. GEESE ON THE STAGE REBEL Object to Understudy for pinger In Halle Performance of Humper dinck's "Konigskinder." Berlln.--An amusing incident oo arred this week at a performance of Humperdinck's "Konigskinder" at the -alle opera house. Live geese are employed for the Halle productio n in contrast to the papier mache variety which indulge in make believe cackles at Berlin. The prima donna who regularly sings the part of the goose maid was taken Ill suddenly and it became necessary to obtain an understudy. When the lat ter, however, went on the stage the geese rebelled against the intrusion of a stranger. They became so enraged they threatened to do the singer bod dly injury. The conductor of the orchestra had to stop the performance until the seese could be quelled. They refused to subside until the familiar figures of the wood chopper and the broom mak er came upon the scene The Llama.

BEST OF CLOTHES DRYERS It Spreads Out Lake a Fan or Folds Up Like a Bundle of Sticks. A clothes dryer that will be a boon to flat dwellers has been designed by a New York man, and is shown in the illustration. It is adapted to extend from a window or balcony, and when not In use can be folded up into such a small compass as to be scarcely noticeable. A bar with a groove In It is hinged to the window sill or porch post and held in horizontal positimn by a wire or cord fastened above it. In the groove slides a hub, which has spokes extending from it, and cords connect these hubs, like the cross sec tions of a spider's web. Indeed, the dryer resembles a huge spider's web wbhen extended. As will be noticed there Is ample space to hang a large wash on this dryer, which can be drawn in to a point where it is easy to reach and the clothes put on. When out of use the hubs and sup porting rod can all be drawn Into parallel position with each other and the whole drawn back against the post, like a bundle of sticks. 8pringerle.

(the Duke of Que,.nsberry) has passed into a proverb, but two tales of his other traits may be quoted from Mrs. Jer rold's "The Beaux and the I)andles." One is that he "'paid a dlo-tor to keep him well, deducting fees when he was ill, and thus when he titled left his phy sician his creditor for £10,.3, and the other that "there wa:s a popular prejtu dice against drinking milk in London at this time because it was believed that the duke bathed each morning in milk. which was subsequently sold to COnsumers.
