When I was a child the moon to me
Through the nursery curtains seemed to be
A thing of marvel and witchery.

In the lucid green of the western sky
Was a fairy boat, and the evening star,
A light on the land where the falries are.

Mrs. Jarvis was a business woman.
Mr. Jarvis had been a mere simper
ing, goout humored nonentity in his
day, klving up all his affairs to his
wife's management and when he shuf
fled off this mortal coil was not great
ly missed. And Mrs. Jarvis consoled
herself by opening a suit manu
Here she sat upon this glorious Au
gust afternoon in her own little pri
vate office, a pen behind her ear and
a pencil between her lips, adding up
a long column of figures-a tall,
portly, finelooking dame, in rich black
silk. with costly jewels sparkling upon
her fingers and that comfortable look
upon the face which accumulating
wealth is sure to bestow.
"Sixteen and six are twenty-two,"
said Mrs. Jarvis, resting her pencil
at the foot of the line. "Two-and
two to carry--eh? Who is there?"
An apologetic little knock had come
to the office door--it was Mr. Mad
stone, Mrs. Jarvis' cashier and fore
man in general.
"It's me, ma'am, said Mr. Madstono,
whose close-shorn hair stuck up all
over his head, like the bristles of a
blacking brush. "That Mrs. Pennant
is here with her bundles."
Mrs Jarvis glanced first at her
ledger and then at the calendar that
hung on the wall over the desk.
"Six hours behind time," said she,
austerely. "The order went out at
9 o'clock this morning, minus the 12
suits she was finishing. Tell her to
leave her work and come here for no
more. Of course, 1 shall not pay her,
and she m:ty think herself fortunate
that she is not compelled to pay the
usual fine."
"I wish you'd see her yourself!"
blurted out Madstone, scratching his
bristly hea l. "She looks pale and
sick, and-"
"Pshaw!" interrupted Mrs. Jarvis,
rising from her seat, with a rustling
of black silk skirts. "You haven't the
resolution of a chipmunk. Madstone,
and never had! lou'd let all these
girls and women run over you, if it
wasn't for me."
And she swept through the narrow
door of the office out into the long
bare workroom, where the click of 20
sewing machines buzzed on the sultry
air and several haggard women waited
at the counter.
"Oh," said she, stopping short be
fore the nearest one, ",Mrs. Pennant,
you are six hours behind. The order
has gone.-'
"I am very sorry, ma'am," hesitated
the pale woman, "but my daughter
was ill-my little Jessie-and I had
no one to care for her but myself. I
sat up all night to finish the suits
I did, indeed-and--"
"All these details make no differ
ence to me," interrupted Mrs. Jarvis,
with a sharp, crispy voice. "Business
is business, and the very soul of it is
punctuality. You may leave your
suits, but don't expect any more work
from here."
The poor woman's wan face worked.
"Mrs. Jarvis," faltered she, "you are
a woman, and a mother, like myself.
If your child was ill-"
"We won't descend to comparisons,
if you please," said Mrs. Jarvis, icily.
"Good-day. I am much occupied at
"You surely don't mean, Mrs. Jarvis,
that you are not going to pay me for
what I have done?" cried the woman.
"Why should I?" said Mrs. Jarvis.
"Your work has arrived too late to go
in its regular order. You have vio
lated the rules and regulations of this
establishment, and as a necessary
consequence, have forfeited your
pay,. Hopkins," to the clerk, "take
these suits into the packing-room."
Mrs. Pennant's lip quivered, her
eyes, which had been full of entreaty,
now flashed indignantly.
"Mrs. Jarvis," said she, "I know
very well that I am at your mercy,
but, all the same, this sort of thing
looks to me like swindling."
"I cannot help it--rules are rules,"
said the business woman, cold as
"My child lies ill at home. I had
counted on this hard-earned money to
buy the medicine and necessaries that
she must have. Mrs. Jarvis, for
heaven's sake, do not withhold it
from me!"
"General rules will bear hard upon
Individual cases," said Mrs. Jarvis,
glancing furtively at her watch. "I
cannot depart fron them, however."
Mrs. Pennant lifted her thin hands
in an unconsciously tragic attitude.
"Woman!" she uttered, "may the
curse of Heaven light -pon you- for
your cruelty to the widow and father
less! May He give back into your own
bosom, heaped up and running over,
the measure you hold so pitilessly
to me."
And turning awaty, she left the suit
manufactury, amid the breathless si
lence of the assembled working
women. Mrs. Jarvis smiled and
shrugged her shoulders.
"All this is mere rant," said she.
"Madstone, bring that last inventory
into my office."
But the next day, when on reach
ing the building, as usual, the 20
sewing machine girls found that it
had been burned to the ground during
the night, they instinctively thought
of the widow's curse.
It was the janitor's fault. He had
gone into the stockroom with a
lighted candle, and, started by the
springing of a cat, had let it fall too
near a basket of waste paper, and an
instantaneous conflagration had been
the result. And, what was worse, the
insurance had run out on the evening
of the previous day, and Mrs. Jarvis
was a ruined woman!
Yet she was not easily discouraged.
She tried again, and rallied her forces
with true muscular energy, buht It was
all in vain. There is a tide of fortune
in the affairs of everyone--and hers
was on the ebb.
Ten years afterward a poor, shabby
old woman, bent and bowed and
dressed in a rusty black,,was shown
into the silk-hung reception room of
the wife of one of our New York's
wealthiest merchant princee. Mrs.
Tressilian came in, wondertig. She
was a fair, pretty young creature of
about 20, Mr. Tressillan's second
wife and idolized darling.
"You sent in no name," said she, as
she beckoned the old woman to a seat
near the ruby-shining grate. "And I
do not think I know your face. What
is your business with me?"
"I am very poor, madam," pleaded
the ol4 womba, "I sent tIn no na
because I am an utter stranger to
you. My only claim is my wretched
ness and poverty. I have heard that
you are good and generous-that of
your allowance you give to those who
are less favored by Providence."
Mrs. Tressilian, deeply touched by
the haggard pallor of the bent old
woman and the tremulous faintness of
her tones, had taken out her purse and
was unclasping it, when a light touch
fell on her arm.
"Stop a moment, my daughter," said
a soft, low voice, and, turning, Mrs.
Tressilian saw at her side a lady with
hair white and lustrous as silver and
a superb diamond cross glistening in
the lace at her breast, while her black
velvet dress trailed noiselessly over
the crimson pile of the Axminster car
pet. "I believe I know this person. If
I am not milstaken it is Mrs. Jarvis."
"My name is Jarvis," said the old
woman, looking rather surprised.
"Yes," said the other, quietly. "I see
you have forgotten me. I am the Mrs.
Pennant who, years ago, was turned
from your employment because, tied
down to a sick child, she could not be
quite punctual to your orders. This,"
laying her hand on Mrs. Tressilian's
shoulder, "is the very child-my little
Jessie-who lay so ill at that time.
God has prospered us since then. But
"I am a beggar!" burst out poor
Mrs. Jarvis, shrinking back from the
other's stern, questioning eye. "Heav
en help me! I have nowhere to lay
my head!"
"And you come here to beg of us,
forgetful of how pitiless you once were
to me!" uttered Mrs. Pennant, sternly.
"Oh, forgive me! Be merciful and
forgive me!" faltered Mrs. Jarvis,
kneeling at the other's feet.
"I vowed that day, within myself,
that I would be avenged," said Mrs.
Pennant slowly.
"Mamma," pleaded the young wife,
"look at her! Sick, old and poor. God
ha.- taken the bolt of vengeance into
His own hand. All that remains to us
is to be merieful."
"My love, you are right," said Mrs.
Pennant. "Rise, my poor woman. You
shall be fed, sheltered and aided with
money. For the present go to the
housekeeper's room."
And Mrs. Jarvis crept away, with a
choking sob in her throat.
The great circle of fate had accom
plished its revolution, and the widow
was indeed avenged-avenged all the
more completely in that she had
learned the lesson of forgiveness.

Likely to Ste the Next Great Internal Im
provement of the United States.
A discussion respecting the re
claiming of arid lands of the United
States was taken 'ip by the Commer
cial club at its banquet Saturday
night, says the Chicago Record. Prob
ably no greater physical and eco
nomic problem is before the people
of the United States at this time,
and there probably is no other prob
lem which will bring about such far
reaching and beneficial results when
solved. A fair estimate that has been
made of the land that may be made
available for cultivation by impound
ing waters for irrigation purposes
places its area at 10,000,000 acres. It
is now practically worthless. With
irrigation it is claimed this land would
be worth from $500,000,000 to per
haps ten times that amount, and if
not sold it could be rented for from
$1 to $5 a year per acre. The necessity
for dealing promptly with the prob
lem is accentuated by the fact that
all over the arid region irrigating
companies are now at work obtaining
control of vast tracts of land and of
the impounding basins by means of
which they may be supplied with
water privileges and land are being
acquired by these companies that will
be used as the basis for making ex
tortionate demands on the govern
ment, should some plan for general
improvement be decided on. Some
idea of the importance of the matter
may be gathered from the fact that
the Republican national platform
strongly pronounces in favor of a
system of arid land reclamation that
will leave the distribution of water on
such lands in the hands and under
the control of the people of the states
and territories where the lands are
One of the important features of the
reclamation of arid lands by means
of'impounding reservoirs is the fact
that it would be immensely helped to
the project of improving the great
rivers of the west into commercial
waterways. A system has been de
vised by a number of engineers well
posted in the subject which shows
that impounding reservoirs built
along tle Mississippi river would save
many acres of land from alternating
floods and droughts and would make
possible a channel 20 feet in depth
from Lake Michigan, if desired, to the
Gulf of Mexico. Undoubtedly the next
general internal improvement of the
United States will be a plan for the
reclamation of arid lands, which will
work harmoniously with the improve
ment of the great rivers.

When the gallant Welsh captain,
David Gamin, was sent forward by
Henry V to reconnoitre the French
army before the battle of Agincourt

the English by about five to one.
His report to the king is historic;
"There are enough to be killed, en

spread through the camp, and doubt

While at Batesville last week the
writer ,was told of a genuine mix-up
between Edward Brown, a worthy and
well-to-do colored man living 10 miles
west of Batesville, near the big Talla
hatchie bottom, and a 600-pound black
bear, says the Atlanta Constitution.
The incident happened on Tuesday of
last week. The negro's corn field is
near the bottom, and for two weeks
past several bears had made night vis
its thereto to partake of the delicious
roasting ears. Brown is an old bear
hunter, and in his day has killed many
dozens of them. He built a scaffold in
the corn field near where the bears
entered, and Monday night, with his
trusty gun, he took his stand thereon,
intending to bag Bruin while devour
ing his corn. Now the thrilling part
comes, and boys who love to read hair
breadth escapes from wild and fero
cious beasts must prepare to (hold their
breath. The bear came on schedule
time and started straight for the ne
gro's shelter. Brown saw that he was
a tremendously large one, and tried
to make good his aim. He only suc
ceeded in wounding him badly, how
ever, and the bear ran off to the woods.
Brown called his sons to bring the
dogs and a fresh gun, and soon the
dogs had the monster bayed in a brush
thicket within the field. The moon
shone brightly, and he could see the
struggle the dogs were having with
the game, so to make short work of it
he rushed in to get a dead shot, when
Bruin turned on (him with the ferocity
of a Texas cyclone. The negro was
knocked down, his arm crushed to
splinters, and he was badly bitten and
otherwise used up. Brown's oldest son
saw the predicament of his father and
rushed in, grabbed the rifle and ended
Bruin's checkered and corn-eating
career on the spot. The bear weighed
aver 600 hounds.

This distressing afotiom, kwn
boo as Tabos dorsalis, is a disem of
the spinal cord occurring uaually in
middle life, between thirty sand lty
years of age, but sometimes in chil
dren as young as ten or twelve years.
It is believed to be due primarily to
some constitutional trouble, but is
brought on often by exposure to
changes of weather, by physical or
mental overwork, and by whatever de
dresses the general health. It is said 1
that railroad men and others who
travel much are prone to suffer from
this disease. Men are affected more
often than women. The first sign of
the disease is usually a numbness of
the feet and an uncertainty in walk
kig, especially in the dark. The patient
feels constantly fatigued, without ap
parent reason, and sometimes slight
ittacks of dizziness are complained of.
The difficulty in walking gradually in
treases, and then an awkwardness in
the use of the hands is noticed. This
becomes very apparent if the patient is
made to shut his eyes and try to touch
the end of the nose with the index
inger. A well person can usually place
the finger on or very near the nose,
but one suffering from locomotor
ttaxin is as likely to touch the eye or
the chin. There is also frequently a
'eeling of constriction about the waist,
ta if a cord were tightly tied around
the body. Sharp, darting pains may
be felt in the legs, and sometimes there
a severe pain in the stomach, perhaps
with vomiting. Not uncommonly there
b irregular action of the bowels and
bladder. The eyes are often affected,
the sight gradually growing dim, or
bouble vision being present, and oc
casionally there is deafness as well.
painless swelling and deformity of one
Ir more joints may occur, and some
limes the bones become so brittle that
they break very easily, as in a simple
tall. A rare symptom is an ulcer on
the sole of the foot, which it is diffi
umlt or impossible to heal. Locomotor
ttaxia is a very slowly progressive
lisease, lasting sometimes for many
rears, and seldom in itself a cause of
leath. When treatment is begun in
he very early stages, it is believed
that the disease may possibly be cured
but later the most that can be done is
to delay its progress and relieve the
tnost distressing symptoms.-Youths'
Ielean's Experlenee with a loead of
A Mexican freighter whose route
lies across the deserts of New Mexico
and Arizona and who is known as
Juan Riviera has many tales to tell of
bloodcurdling adventures he has had
during his tripe across the sands. Al
though considered to be as truthful as
the ordinary man by his acquaintances,
some of his stories would indicate that
he occasionally departs from the path
of rectitude or else the road he travels
must be a veritable paradise for hunt
ers. One of his reminiscences is as
follows: "While passing from Chi
huahua to Tucson, some fifteen years
ago, I encountered a great herd, prob
ably a thousand, of antelope, and this
accounts for the loss of my forefinger,
which you see is lacking two joints.
This herd was not far from a box
canyon, having a very narrow entrance
when I first saw it. By riding to and
fro, I succeeded after an hour in get
ting them to enter the canyon, but as
the entrance was narrow I could get
them in only one at a time. After los
ing considerable time I got them all
in. To keep them cooped up, I began
to pile up stones at the opening, in
tending to leave the antelopes there
and notify my friends of the catch.
While at work the antelopes suddenly
turned on me and began to rush out.
There was not time enough to bar the
opening, so I grabbed my knife and
stabbed them as they came out Ante
lope are much like sheep, and follow
their leader,and came rushing through
so rapidly that my arm was kept in
motion like the crank shaft on a wind
mill. I wore out the knife, then the
handle, and was so excited that I kept
on jabbing with my forefinger until I
had worn it down to one joint. It
domen't nav to ret excited."

A. Rockwell, pastor of the West Pull
man M. E. church, from his position
as a struggling minister on a small
salary to a man of affluence. Several
years ago he began buying stock in
the Azurite, Twine Beauties and other
old mines in Arizona. His investments
turned out so profitably that a short
time ago he was able to announce to
his congregation that he himself would
pay off the mortgage of $2,500 which
rested over the little church where he
presided as pastor. At the same time
he resigned his salary, as he said his
own Income was adequate for the sup
port of his family. Rev. Mr. Rock

When he accepted the call to West
Pullman he found that church Incum

up the interest. The mining invest
ments of Mr. Rockwell are reputed to
have made him worth $500,000. He is
at present in Arisona looking after
