Othera apoed up and down In their au

and gaae out auaward and liuarlne
th7 can boar the aonga of nier
makt. On a certain day In tha praaent
tweatiuth century l'hlllp Qlllutt waa
among thoso who walked. Ha waa a
young niun at the beach with bla
mother and Bister, and bin ocoupatlon
when at borne In New York waa pre
paring himself for architecture, tia
did that mostly by looking at ona or
two akyacrapura a day from tha out
Me and spending 500 per week al
lowed by bla father. It waa bla fa
ther who had Insisted that the young
man take up architecture. Tbera
never bad been an architect In tha
OlUett family, and ho wanted one.
Ha bad a manor limine, and he wanted
a hennery built, and ho wanted to
point to it after It was finished and
aay: "A Glllett did that!"
On this particular day Philip Gillett
had toothache and he set out to walk
It off. II In sister hud told him to hold
a wad pf cotton saturated with pep
permint essence in bla mouth, and to
kocp bla mouth shut lie thought a
good dual of hla viator, and be waa
obeying her.
Tocthucho affecta a person pecu
liarly particularly a man. It glvea
him whut la known as a grouch. He
wants to stand on the beach and ace
a dentist drown In the Bea. He Isn't
to blame, but everybody else la. And
what made young Mr. Gillett crosser
Btill was the fact that he had to chew
cotton and keep his mouth shut It
was not dignified. It was taking un
due advantage of a fellow.
Among those who motorod that day
were Miss Edna Blair and Miss Kitty
Waldron. girl chums. They were in
Resorted to More Peppermint.
Miss Kitty's auto, and she was run
ning it herself. After getting out of
the crowd, and heading up the shore,
they saw a young man half a mile
ahead of them. He was scuffing along
on the hard track and was in their
path. The honk! lionk! was sounded,
but he paid no attention. lie wanted
to be run over and have that aching
tooth smashed out
The autmobile passed him within
two feet and In spite of himself he
gave a Jump and swallo-ved the pep-permfnt-soaked
wad of cotton. He
then had to produce more cotton and
more peppermint for his aching tooth.
Mr. Glllett's walk had extended two
miles when he sat down on a hum
mock and resorted to more pepper
mint. Mis Bister was right; It began
to have a southing effect! He began
to feel glad that he was alive and
away from the snow heaps of New
York city. Just then he caught sight
of the auto returning. As it drew
near, he saw that Miss Edna Dlalr
was passably good looking and that
Miss Kitty Waldron was more so. The
auto was aiming to pass him within
a few feet, but that was all right. lie
reasoned that the girls desired a near
er view of the young man, whom they
had so frightened, and he was right
about it. They didn't seem to see
him, of course, but that was false
pretense.
And after that fate stepped In. The
auto was exactly opposite Philip to
an inch, and exactly six feet and one
inch and a half away, when a front
tire exploded with a bang. Two
young ladles screamed. The auto ran
wild until half burled In the sand.
The young man was blown over on

Hen's Nest Found in Tree
Blddy'a Home Not Discovered Until
Two of Her Chicks Dropped to
the Ground.
A hen of the Houdan species was
found on tha farm of Henry Calley
brooding nine peeps In a nest between
the forks of an old cherry tree whore
they were hatched out, says a Dallas
town (N. Y.) correspondent. The hen
Is the property of George Smith, who
now resides at Seven Valleys, to
which place he moved on the first of
April. '
When he left the hen was among
the missing, and he asked Mr. Bailey,
his son-ln-law, who took charge of the
farm, to watch for her. A search
was made, but be was unable to find
her hiding place until the other day.
Where an old ladder was Inclined
against the trunk of an old cherry tree
Mr. Bailey noticed two chicks several
days old at the base and running
about peeping. While wondering
where they came from he was sur
nnata Ltlaimry 1'rvM.J
lowed bla wad of cotton for the bbo
ond time In an bour.
Ha would bare been lesa than hu
man If ba hadn't arisen with a face
aa rad aa paint and oroaa all the way
through. He grabbed for hla bat and
might bare gone running over the
&uj Juiiwa bad not a sweot and plain
tlve voice reached bla ears:
"Oh, air, please do help uat Wt,
have bunted a tire!"
Yea, be would help. Aa a gentle
man be must do ao; but be made up
bla mind to do no more. Tbat la, ba
wouldn't speak a word to tboea glrla.
Tbey bad fed him on ootton, bo to
speak, and be would have bla revenge.
Ho advanced and raised bla bat Then
ba Inspected the tire.
I hope you were not hit by one of
the flying piecea." aald Mlsa Kitty In
ber most Ingratiating manner.
No reply.
"Will we have to walk back to tbe
hotel 7"
No answer.
"You aee we bave a in are Ura
here."
No answer.
Mr. Glllett owned an auto himself.
In fact, hli mother and Bister wore
down Uie beach In It at that very
moment He knev all about tires.
He took tbe Jnck from its place, and
without motioning the girls to de
scend he went at It and had the tire
replaced Inside of 12 mlnutea. He
might have done It In ten except for
overhearing such observations as:
"Say, Edna, he must be doaf."
"Yes, deaf as an old tin pan."
"And he hasn't spoken a word. Do
you think he's also dumbT"
"He looks It"
"Poor young man! It's Just awful!
He's got considerable style about
him."
"Oh, I don't know. Wasn't It fun
ny to see him go over on hla back.
If bis bat hadn't blown oft ho'd have
wallowed it!"
"Hush, you bad girl! I'll tell you
what ho Is. He's a professor In some
deaf and dumb school. 'And he owns
on auto, too. See bow handy he la.
I wish we hadn't frightened him so."
"If we had scared him worse, he
might have got his voice and Inuring
back. Think what it would be to mar
ry a deaf and dumb man! Are you
going to thuuk him?"
"Not in words, but I'll Just look
my thanks."
Aa Mr. Gillett finished and stood
back and raised his hat the thanks
were duly looked and the auto
whizzed along. He followed at a slow
pace. The toothache was all gone,
but he had been humiliated. He had
been made to Jump uside like a kan
garoo; be had been blown flat on
bis back; he bad been made to swal
low wads of cotton; he had almost
been called names to his very face.
No wonder he wouldn't speak to bis
sister for an hour after getting back
to the hotel, and that his mother laid
her maternal hand on bis locks and
said:
"Philip, I hope you won't go into a
decline, as your grandfather did at
this very place."
There is fate and there Is revenge.
Fate had come revenge had to wait
a day or two. Then the sister came
running to Philip.
"Oh, Phil!" she exclaimed; "I've
met Just the nicest girl you ever saw!
She's stopping at the Royal. I've in
vited her to take a spin in tbe au
to, and you are to bo chauffeur. I
want you to meet her."
As the aching tooth had gone out of
business and the world looked rosy
ngain, Philip consented, though en
tirely' to please the sister. They dif
fered on the girl question.
It was only when they had rolled
mound to the hotel and picked up
their passenger that Mr. Philip Gll
lett would have swallowed a whole
roll of cotton batting had it been
handy. She was the girl of the other
outo the girl who had looked her
thanksMiss Kitty Waldron!
Mr. Glllett tried to say things, and
Miss Waldron did likewise, and tha
sister sat there and wundered if both
of them had toothache. And when
they got back at last and Mr. Gillett
assisted Miss Waldron up the steps
of the veranda, she turned to him to
say:
"Sir, have you any explanations to
muke?"
"I have, and will call this evening
to make them."
The explanations must have proven
satisfactory, as an auto ride became
a thing of daily occurrence thereaft
er, and the season had not yet closed
when Miss Glllett put her arms
around ber brother's neck and mur
mured: "Oh, Phil, I'm so glad so glad! I
Just hoped you two would take each
other, and now you have!",
prised to see the hen fly from the fork
of the tree and come to the relief of
her offspring. Further Investigation
revealed the nest inthe tree, together
with seven more peeps and an un
hatched egg, which proved to be rot
ten. The chicks on the ground had fallen
from the nest, which had been formed
by a lot of brush and old leaves de
posited there by the elements during
the fail and winter months. Mrs. Hou
dan and her happy family have been
provided with belter quarters and are
doing well.

Excelsior Springs Boomers Decry
Nearness of James Home.
Story of Jesse'a Death Told by C. E.
1 Plandera Who Sent First Met
eage of Ford' Act
to World.
Excelsior Springs, Mo. Officers of
tbo Commercial club, who are deslr-
oug of milking Excelsior Springs a wa
tering resort rlvullng the pretentious
ones of Europe, are not particularly
pleased with the proximity of the old
.Tesso James home, because of which
they find their city associated with
outlaw exploits In tho minds of thou
sands of persons In all parts of tho
couutry. And this impression waa
helped along, they say, by the widely
Home of James' Mother,
reported visit of six Chicago aldermen
to tb, bandit stronghold several weeks
ao. Though Excelsior Springs Is a
buBfl'rg, up-to-date city, It Is In the
heart of the Missouri- "cracker" coun
try ad abounds in the old-time types.
A rtory which Mrs. Zurulda Samuel,
moUvbr of the James boys, tells to
jinaty visitors to her farm near hero Is
the fhooting of Jesse James by his
couula, "Hob" Ford. An interesting
description of that occurrence la given
,by 0. E- Plunders, one of the leading
anarchists of the town.
, Ai the time of tho shooting Mr
jFldOl.crs was a young man and the
only telegraph operator In St. Joe,
Ma., where it occurred. Ho sent tho
flrM message to the outsldo world, tell
ing pf tho occurrence. Jesse James,
with, bis wife and two traitor cousins..
"Hob'' and Charley Ford, were living
1h te. A reward of $3,0(0 had been of
fertd by the governor for the outlaw,
dead or alive. The story of how
Jun:;n when asked that fatal morning
by bin wife to hang a picture in the
parlor unstrapped and laid aside his
two revolvers for the first time in
months and Ford, entering the room,
shot him through the buck of the head
is vrdl known.
"The first we knew of the killing
was a report which spread around
town that Jesse James was dead," said
Mr. Flanders. "For months reports
had been coming in almost daily that
he bad been killed or captured in this
or that purt of the country, but we
paid little attention to them. I
stepped to the front door and looked
at thfl big house on the bluff where
the man we had known as 'Mr. How
ard hnd lived. The hill looked like
en anthill with men swarming up Us
sides from all directions.
"Before I could start for the scene
two men came into the telegraph of
fice. They were the Ford boys. Charley
kept nervously pacing up and down,
pulling his little black mustache, while
'Hob' started laboriously filling out a
blank. He was having considerable
trouble with it and I said to hlin:
'"Shall I write it for you?'
" 'I can write it myself, all right,'
he growled.
"He wrote out two telegrams. One
was nddresed to the governor and
slnif'ly said: 'We've got our man.' The
other was to the chief of police of
Kansas City and said: 'We've got our
man; will bring the body.'
"As I took them 'Hob' Ford pmVftd
out a revolver at least eighteen Inch .'3
long, broke It and dropped out an
emp'.y shell on the floor. The bullet
from it had killed Jesse James. I wijs
youn-s then and Inquisitive and deter
mined to find out who was shot.
" 'Have some trouble, up on Cho
hill"' I said.
" 'Yes,' he vouchsafed.
'"Anybody hurt?' I insisted.
'"Killed a man, that's all,' he rj
pliec!. ,
"I'y that time Charley had nerv
ously edged 'Bob' as far as the frOi.t
door.
" 'Who waa It?' I shouted.
" 'A horse thief who got gtij
growkfl 'Bob.' 'If any answer comes
to the. telegram send it to us. We'll
be uptown.'
"I was too excited to get any moro
definite address than 'Uptown,' and
the two went out and gave themselves
up to the police. They told their story
and an undertaker went up the hill
and took the body to his shop. At 4
p. m., when it was laid out in state
and lie opened the doors, everybody
for miles around was waiting to pass
through and see it.
"That was the last seen of the Foi d
boys around there. They took the re
ward and went west, where 'Bob' wis
shot In a dance hall, possibly by some
revengeful member of the old gan,
and Cfcarley committed suicide, both
a few months later."

FLOWERS ON LAMP POSTS
Kansas City Bank Follows a European
Custom of Decoration
of Streets.
Kansas City, Mo. Every one wha
passes the corner of Ninth and Walnut
notices the flowers and vines In th
urns on the ornamental lamp posts In
front of the Fidelity Trust building.
There are eight of the poles, four on
the Walnut street side of the building
and four on the Ninth street side. Thii
urns are Just underneath the lamps.
Blooming geraniums, lantana, archy
nia and hibiscus fill the urns, and
trailing fringe of green and white.
leafed vinea vine drapes down si foot
or moro around the edges of each.
Tho flowers and vines are planted Iu
wire baskets, semi-circular in shape,
so that two Just fill each urn. When
the flowers in one lose their fragrance
it is to be replaced immediately by
another. A sufficient number of ban
kets are being tended by a gardener sj
that fresh flowers always will be In
the urns. The flowers were chosen bo
cause of their ability to withstand tho
sun and winds, and it is not expected
to be necessary to replace the baskets
more than three or four times in tho
summer. The lnsldes of the iron urna
are lined with moss to protect tha
roots from the heat of the metal.
The Idea to have the flowers on tho
poles was obtained from public build

CROSSED LONG BRIDGE FIRST
One of General Kearney'e Man Relatea
Entertaining Tale of Evanta of
Civil War.
Let me give the true statement of
the first soldiers that crossed the long
bridge In 18C1. Tbe writer was a
member of Company A, Third New
Jersey, a portion of the New Jersey
brigade, credited with helping save
Washington, writes Joseph Lawton, in
National Tribune. Our regiment was
the first to cross thu long bridge on
tbe night of May, 211. 1801. at about
eleven o'clock and as we carried a
company flag ours was tho first flag to
cross that bridge. A portion of this
historic flag Is still In Aaron Wllkea
post room, at Trenton, In a glass case.

In the Rear of the Enemy.
Joseph Yard to him, who was a close
friend and had served under hLin in
the Mexican war. The general gave
orders to the captain to tell the men
not to make any noise In going over
tho bridge. Our company was sta
tioned at General Leo's home. Mrs.
Lee was there at the time. At the end
of the three months I reenllsted In
Company V Fourth New Jersey, for
three years. The regiment was In
General Kearney's brigade, and was
In constant and active service. The
effective service of our regiment was
largely due to General Kearney, who
constantly kept bis men training, not
only as to army discipline, but in tar
get practice. It was the target prac
tise that made the regiment so strong
In battle, little ammunition being
wasted. It gave It the power to cope
with and defeat large numbers. At
the buttle of Gaines' Mill It was Cor
poral Joseph Lawton that went in
front of tho Fourth New Jersey.
About three o'clock the regiment went
Into a most important position for the
protection of the brigade. It was In
front of General Longstreet's division.
The enemy charged, but was driven
back; then there was steady firing for
awhile, when the enemy charged
again, but was driven back with
heavy loss. Then the enemy stopped
filing. Major llirney asked me if I
"would go out and see why the enemy
had stopped. I came back and told
the major that thu enemy was getting
ready to march on our right and left
in large numbers. I had before gone
nto the enemy's lines over the
Chlcknhominy river. Captain John
son of Company H and four men of my
company nnd my brother are still liv
ing as witnesses of this statement. I
saw what the regiment had done. The
ground was covered with the dead and
wound' d, some places two deep. It
was the target practise that made the
regiment so effective. The major went
after reinforcements. The Eleventh
Pennsylvania came and went In our
front. It was late in the day. The
enemy soon charged on th Eleventh
Pennsylvania, driving them back on
us; we again facing another charge.
It was -then discovered that we were
surrounded. We were compelled to
surrender. The suffering in Libby
prison and Belle island cannot be
told. When exchanged we marched
from Belle island to Harrison's
Landing. The captain and men
of the boats waiting to take us shed
tears to see 3,000 half-starved prison
ers. It was like being in Heaven to
see friends and the old flag again.
An ollicer came aboard and read a pa
per, saying that there was going to
be another battle that would decide if
the government should stand. The
officer called for all who would try to
carry a gun, and said the government
will reward us, the Taboos tarry wa
knapsacks. Nearly all the Fouxti
New Jersey and many more of the oth
er regiments shouldered guns. After
marching for a few days we got to
Crampton's Gap, September 14, 1862.
Gen. Slocum talked to us as we were
ready to lead the charge. He said he
had seen the New Jersey when it was
nearly a thousand strong, able men;
now it had only a few hundred. He
told us to keep In good heart, that the
darkest hour was just before the
break of day. We got the order and
made the charge. We got to the
stone wall at the foot of the gap, dri
ving the enemy away and up In tc
the gap to the turn of the road; they
made a stand tbere. I was with (host
who got on top of the cut and wt
drove the line back. In doing so we
got tho flash of two cannon in our
faces with canister. It thinned out
line. The enemy fled. Going a little
way I saw that I was In the rear of
the enemy, and looking down saw an
officer encouraging his men. I saw
Alfred Hoffman and got him to fira
with me b. the officer. The enemy
saw their officer fall, and that they
were getting a flank Are. They ran,
but wo got some of them. I believe
that this was the turning point of th4
battle.
