On la:-t Friday Hall Malum, a negro, was publicly hanged in the T-rivenee of BftflO men, women and children, MahOD bad committed an assault on Mrs. McClOUd. The body on the scaffold swayed by the side of Mrs. Mc-Cloud. who had been given the nearest seat to the condemned. The account •ays: "She uttered a shout of approval as Mahon's body swayed to and tro." Do you take In the full horror of the hideous spectacle?. Read it over again. A negro hanged in tbe presence of an entire community, both Sexes, old and young. That alone is a crime against civilir,ation. And the nauseating particulars tell of a woman, the victim of the negro's lust, a woman with no sense of fitness and no conception of delicacy, who occupies the front seat at the hanging and hysterically applauds when the body is contorted in the death struggle! Certainly Buddha was right when he said. "There Is no fire like passion, there Is no shark like hatred, there is no snare like folly." The authorities who permitted this public execution and exploited the woman victim as a part of It are a thousand years behind Buddha. To punish the negro and that severly was demanded of justice. As to whether he ought to have been hanged for anything less than murder may depend somewhat on local public sentiment. But what warrant have officials for blunting the sensibilities of a community, brutalizing a people, hardening the tender hearts of lit tle children by familiarity with savagery—a savagery that gloats over a victim like the glee of a Sioux Indian tending the torture fire of his foe? This unholy exhibition did not take place at Tyburn in the eigh teenth century, but in Arkansas in the year of Our Lord, 1902. The picture is one that Charity would fain turn to the wall but can not. There It hangs. Look at it. St. Louis has just finished bowing and scraping before a youth who has royal blood in his veins and is going to be a monarch some day. The crown prince of Siam is a pagan. Ills country is not civilized, and it wouldn't be fair to expect much from him in the way of modern manners. But he doesn't get drunk. He has displayed no fondness for chorus girls or champagne; he has expressed no desire to do the tenderloin and make a show of himself. You see, he is a gentleman. That is something that wots not the color of a man's hide or his place on the map of the world. Even education doesn't entirely subor dinate instinct, and so we have people with white skins coining from highly civilized lands making beasts of themselves, while the man from China and the crown prince of Siam and the other representatives of nations that are a thousand years behind the procession are setting the pace for good manners for the blue bloods of the world. These pagans never forget their dignity or position. Scandal does not creep into their legations at Washington. They are calm, quiet and courteous wherever they are found. Compare them with Boris, the ducal drunkard of Russia, a French count or two and some of the English nobility, who have disgraced America by their presence in time past, and one would almost Cry out: "Let us be pagans for the Bake of decency." When the crown prince goes home he will leave behind pleasant memories and carry with him a hearty invitation to come again. When some of the more enlightened visitors have departed, Amer ica has notified her best bad-debt collectors to follow them, while so ciety, which can stomach almost anything that looks human and wears a title, fumigates the house. Dr. George F. Hall of Chicago is out in a sermon on gum chew ing. "Give me the gum money of the city of Chicago for one year," Bays the doctor, "and I will build and dedicate free from debt a magnificent auditorium with a seating capacity of 10,000, in every re spect superior to the world famous Mormon tabernacle at Salt. I>ake City." True, but the preacher did not give tbe figures for the country at large. The women of the United States spend more than $8,000,000 a year for the product of the gummlferous tree. The greatest gum chewers are tbe women of Cleveland. The sec ond is Chicago, and St. Louis is third. The gummosity of these cities puts to the blush the ruminant who chews his cud. And the gummous article is in the hands of a trust! The doctors say gum chewing ruins the digestion but the women reply with a wag of the jaw. Others say It "isn't nice.", imagine Helen of Troy or Beatrice or Joan of Arc clipping enunciation with a wad of gum! The only answer to this impeachment is a tilt of the nose and a chew, chew, chew. Well, let them chew. They don't Bpend a tithe of the tobacco bill. And few of them can talk and chew at the same time. There are exceptions. AUDREY. Dramatic Premiers Watch Result With Interest.

A fragrant bunch of roses on the table made the affair RMt like a wed ding banquet, and she did look a bit like a bride, tremulously happy, yet heartily hungry. "Oh, how I enjoy it all," she said, as the waiter daintily arranged the Blue Points, and then pushed a cushion under Her feet. "Would the people think we are foolish if they knew that we have a good home and children and our own table, and that, after 25 years of married life, run away to a hotel for our little dinners, just as we did before the first haby came?" He looked at Her fondly across the table. "My dear, let the peo ple think what they please." he said. "If it is foolish for a man to be in love with his wife after a quarter of a century's association, let's be as mad as the maddest. I'm enjoying myself. You look happy. You look like the girl I met at. a church social a good many years ago and afterward married. Not for so much as a minute have I ever been sorry. You have always been my chum. The band hasn't played for us all of the time. There have been days when we couldn't have these Stolen Dinners, but you have been the one thing. Dear, that I've al ways been sure of, "John, I think the people at the next table can hear you, and your soup is getting cold. Let me talk. I forget my years when I go out With you. I love the children, but it would spoil it to have even them at our stolen parties. It is good of you to want to have me with you. I'm proud to be in the world. A good many women need sympathy as much as they need love, John * * * Don't put your foot against mine—the waiter will see you." Perhaps he did, but not even the shadow of a smile flickered across his face as he arranged the next course, flecked away a few imagi nary crumbs and then discreetly disappeared. "it doesn't seem far to that first social," said he. "You wore flowers in your hair and some lace fixings at your throat; your cheeks were pink, and when you talked with the young minister I want ed to punch his head. Oh! I was insanely jealous that night—" "And very foolish —go on, John," softly. "And I heard you refuse him when he asked permission to es cort you home, and was so happy when he was miserable, that I forgave him for being good-looking. And then—why, Jennie, you know all about it." "But I love to hear you tell It." "Remember, how we walked blocks, and blocks out of the way to make the trip longer, and how we sat out on the porch at your home and looked at the stars —Hang it, Jennie! I wonder if any other young fellow was ever half so happy as I was after that, evening, jwhen 1 realized that you belonged to ME, and that the preacher, jand that little sawed-off fellow, who clerked in a shoe store—l cant remember his name and I'm glad of it—and all the rest, who had been hanging about you for a year, were OUT OF IT forever. Dear, your eyes are shining like stars. You are handsomer at 45 than you ware at 20, and—" "Happier, John," she whispered. "The dinner has been perfect. 1 think I know how an eloping bride feels. Have the man get my wrap and we'll go home to the children. But first I'd like to drink a toast 'to the man who made his wife his chum.' " "Thank you, little woman, and here is another, 'Our Stolen Din ners.' " They drank it. He paid a modest check a..J they left the dining room. The guests saw a man with many lines of care on his face and a woman no longer young. It is not permitted the public to peer into hearts, and so they couldn't know that they had dined in the pres ence of a king who reigned over the wide empire of a woman's heart, and a queen who retained her sovereignty over a man's life, although 25 yearns married.
