"You hat here a fine bicture, madam." very poor. l o doubt he lived in a garret, wherle I'ainted ,lc wtures andl ate stale bread and thought of the good things to eat in Miss Marths ballkery. Often when Miss Martha sat down to her chops and light rolls and Jam and tea she would sigh and wish that the gentle mannered artist might share her tasty meal Instead of eating his dry crust In that drafty attic. Miss Mar tha's heart, as you have been told, was a sympathetic one. In order to test her theory as to his occupation, she brought from her room one day a painting that she had bought at a sale and set it against the shelves behind the bread counter. It was a Venetian scene. A splendid marble palazzlo (so it said on the plc tare) stood in the foreground-or, rath er, forewater. For the rest there were gondolas (with the lady trailing her hand in the water), clouds, sky and chlaro oecuro In plenty. No artist could fail to notice It. Two days afterward the customer came in. "Two loats (of stale bread. If you blease. You hat here a fine blcture. madam," he said while she was wrap ping up the bread. "Yes?" says Miss Martha,. reveling Ia her own cunning. "I do so admire art and"-no, it would not do to say "artists" thus early-"and paintings." she substituted. "You think it is a good plctare?" "Der balace." said the customer, "is not in goot drawing. Der balrspeetive of It is not true. Goot morning, mad am". He took his bread, bowed and hur ried out. Yes. he must be an artist. Miss Martha took the piicture back to her room. How gentle andl kindly his eyes shone behind his Slpectaclhs! What a broad I brow he ha.!. To be able to, jlai, persperlctive at a glance-aidl to tiiie IIn stale bread!

Often now when lie c:linlile lie wonr!i chat for awhile across the show,.:.. He seemed to crave Miss Martha:' cheerful words. He kept on buying stale bread. Never a cake. never a pie, never one of her delicious Sally Lunns. She theoght he began to look thinner sad discouraged. Her heart ached to add something Sgood to eat to his meager purchase, but her courage failed at the act. She did not dare affront him. She knew the pride of artists. Miss Martha took to wearing her blueh dotted ailk waist behind the counter. Stage Money. It has been observed that stags money must sometimes agure in the salaries that stage performers receive. In a breach of promise case, recently tried at New York, it was shown that an actress who was understood to be receiving 1.000 a week, wuas actually getting $800, out of which $80 was de duetod for booking and press agut as. Still, as the pres a'ag t was Itv ;ng her a salary of $1,000, she eould hardly have begruded the moey she aid hiL -8ipriaga Reepbbem I.' !.

His face was very red, his hat was on the hack of his head. his hair was wildly ruimled lie clinched his two fists and shook them ferociously at Miss IMartha-at Miss Martha. "Drummkopf!" he shouted with ex treme loudness, and then "Tausendon fer!" or something like it in German. The young man tried to draw him away. "I viil not go," he said angrily. "else I shall told her." He made a bass drum of Miss Mar tha's counter. "You halt shpoilt me." he cried, his blue eyes blazL,:g behind his spectacles. "I vill tell you. You vas von medding some old cat!" Miss Martha leaned weakly against the shelves and laid one hand on her blue dotted silk waist The young man took the other by the collar. "Come on." he said; "you've said enough." ie dragged the angry one out at the door to the sidewalk and then came back. "Guess you ought to be told, ma'am," he said. "what the row Is about.

Miss Martha we-nt into the back room. She took off the blue dotted silk waist and put on the old brown serge she used to wear. Then she poured the quince seed and borax mixture out of the window into the ash can.

I OLDEST VESSEL AFLOAT ANCIENT FELON SHIP TIES UP AT WASHINGTON WHARF. aBult in 1790, Transports Teas and Ivories in Early Yeare-Then Used to Convoy Human Cargo to Australia. The oldest and strangest craft afloat In the world arrived in Wash ington the other afternoon a n d made fast at the Seventh street wharf. ~rrr ,~ This is the old British convict aI ship Success, now the only survivor of the "Ocean Hells," as the ships of Eng land's fleet of felon transports were called in Sthe first half of the last century. I uit in I 7.o, at Mouhnain, by the old pagoda "looking eastward to the st-a." the Success is now one hundred and twenty-three years old. No ship of tny thing like her great age today is beaworthy, yet this old hulk under her own sail has succeeded in cross ing the Atlantic, although its time of dt1 days created no new record. Masslvely built throughout of solid Blurnman teak the Success was first launched as an armed East Indian merchantman, with beautiful brass guns bristling from its sides. It was fitted handsomely for the reception of princes, nabobs, and the wealthy traders of the Orient. whose goods. spices, aromatic teas, ivories, Jewels. and other costly luxuries it carried over the seven seas. Its tonnage is :5h9, and it is 135 feet long and 29 feet beam. Its solid sides are two feet six inches thick at the bilge, and the keel son is a solid teak baulk of tremen dous thickness, with sister keelsons little less massive. The square cut stern and quarter galleries at once I stamp the ship with the hallmark of antiquity, and its bluff bow shows that it could never have distinguished it self for a high rate of speed. Yet pains were taken to make it trim and smart, and fit to hold a leading place among its sister ships of the Anglo. - Indian fleet. Broken only by an occasional con flict with a pirate craft, the Success had an honored life on the ocean until 1502, when it was first chartered by the British government to transport to Australia the overflow of the home Jails, the unfortunate wretches who at that time were sentenced to from seven years to the term of natural life for offenses that would now be considered trivial and petty, warrant ing at most but a small fine. Some of the greatest writers of the nineteenth century devoted their pens to horror-compelling descriptions of the voyages of the felon-fleet, of which the Success was in its day the principal "devil ship." STATUES MAR THE CAPITAL? Can They Be as Bad as This South Carolina Critic Pronounces Them? If ever a beautiful city was marred with the sufden apparition of the aboriginal crudities in bronse which p spring from crude brains it is Wash ington. You meet them looming in the gloaming, flaunting themselves in the sunlight, spoiling the fragrance of the morning. Go Into the capitol, and the effect is stimply stunning! Go into the Coreoran Art gallery, -and many of the most prominent of fering easily lend themselves to com paiulson with the weirdest offerings of New York's "Eden Musee" of wax works. Go to Baltimore, to Richmond, to New York. and, in fact, to almost every city and town in America, and you will find these hideous blotches on the landscape, making ironical comments on history, or cynical re f flectlons on the graft that took the name of "art." Richmond, in particular, vies with Washington and New York in the number of these abortions, but there is scarcely a hamlet that is free of their malign influence in one form or another. Almost we might welcome a dread ed militancy, could it take its little hatchets and bombs, and in a night blow up the bronsed heroes, the spay ined horses, the marbled great that, on the face and figures of them, al- l most persuade us to Join the ranks of eugenists.--Columbia (S. C.) State. a Schools Need Protection From Fire According to the division of educa tion of the Russell Sage Poundation. only one state in the Union has good laws for the protection of schoo l houses from fire. The report remarks that the United States, as a nation. spends nearly one dollar for each in habitant for the construction of new schools, and that, uas a nation, we pear mit schoolhouses to burn down at the rate of more than one for each school day of the year.
