off and lantled in the ,lead of winter.
Hit had never sen a snowstorm hu
fore, he was thinly clad and suiffered
terribly from the cohl. .An attack of
whooping cough laid him up and took
all his money. Nevertheless as soon
as he could crawl out he shiltp'd on
one of the winter fishing fleet bound
for the ';rand Banks. IIH endured
hardships without complaIning, dt, his
work with a smile, and thus won the
friendship of the men of the sea. Fol
lowing his work on the Banks he
worked his way back to Florila as a
sailor. Next we see him as a roust

river. lie saved his money, bought a

out for himself. His splendid fighting
abilities were winning him notice, the
while his kindly disposition was win

sheriff of Dural county, a position he
held nine years, and in which he made
a record which attractel attention to
him from all parts of the state.
The exploit which made Broward fa
mous throughout the United States
and Cuba was his ability as a block
ade runner to Cuba. during the time
the insurgents were fighting the Span
lards there before the Spanish-Ameri
can war. In company with his brother
and a third partner Broward built a
stout, seagoing tug for salvage and
wrecking work off the Florida coast.
He was approached by Cuban agents
ant asked to run guns and munitions
into Cuba. The work was hazardous
in the extreme, but the pay was com
minsurate with the risk and Broward
became a filibuster. In all he made
eight trips from the Florida keys to
Cuba and his perilous adventures and
narrow escapes would make a novel
in themselves. He was chased by
Spanish gunboats, fought with sev

MAN WASN'T BLIND AT ALL
Why Philanthropically Inclined Per
sons Soon Come to Abominate the
Miss Mary Richmond of the Phila
d',lphia society for organizing charity
abolninats professional beggars, and
has innum t rable stories in proof of
th worthlessness of these nimen.
Many of Miss lllehrotind's stories
have a humorous turn. Thus, receDnt
ly, she said:
"As an English gentleman was was walk
ing (:own a (u11.t street he heard a
raucous voie say:
"' 'harity: For the love of heaven,
The gentleman, a true philanthro
pist, turned and saw a thin and rag
god figure on whose breast hung a
card saying 'I am blind.' The gentle
man took a coin from his pocket and
dropped it into the blind beggar's
"But the coin was dropped from too
great a height, and it bounced out
again. It fell and rolled along the
pavement, the beggar in pursuit. Fi
tally it lodged in the gutter, whence
the blind man fished it out.
"The gentlemen said in a stern
"'Confound you; you are no more
blind than I am.'
"The beggar at these words looked
at the placard on his breast and gave
a start of surprise.
"'Right you are, boss,' he said.
'Blamed if they haven't put the wrong
card on nme. I'm deaf and dumb.'"
There is no place in the world ho
agreeable, these benign and translu
cent mornings, as at home, sitting in
a north room, with the windows wide
open, and the fresh air sweetened by
the sunshine, lifting the curtains and
strolling in like a spirit from the bet
ter world. It is a scene that has more
lovely dreams about it than ocean
beach, mounetain crest or trip on the
river, for it has no anxieties, no fore
bodinogs, no sense of fading glory. One
doesn't needi anything else to make
the experience happy-no friend, or
feast, or book, or glimipse of sea or
sky-only the tender grace of the
morning and its soft, cool hand on
his brow. It is the most beautiful gift
of the year, a chalice filled with wine
anti honey which makes one forget
his troubles andt remember only his
joys. Ano what is it called that does
all this? The spirit of contentmaent,
the serenest ruler of these warm and
fragrant days. iLet us bow to its gen
tle sway.-Columbus State Journal.
DINING OUT WITH FRIENDS
How a Boarding House Romance Be
gan Between Two Homeless Lodg
ers Who Had No Acquaintances.
Not until boarding houses cease to
exist will all their romances be writ
ten. Shabby romances, some of them
are, like that of the young woman who
got so tired of being called "poor
thing" because she received no invi
tations and had to eat all her meals
at the boarding house table that she
took to eating alone once in awhile at
a cheap restaurant; and then brazen
ly lying about the friends who had
invited her to dinner.
There was a young man in that
house who never went anywhere eith
er. The first night the girl stayed out
life's desolation nearly overpowered
him. "Even that poor little white
faced soul has made friends who want
her," he said. "Nobody wants me.
I'm no good on earth."
Then on rare occasions his place at
the table was vacant. "New friends?"
asked the landlady.
"Yes," lied the young man.
One night the man and the girl met
in a 25-cent restaurant. They blushed,
they fenced, they finally confessed.
"W'e're a pair of frauds," said the
girl. "It's awful to think that to
nlght when we go home we will have
to a*.vear that we have been dining with
