It draws dividends all the time. It is always going out in boundless beneficence, but the supply is aivays Increasing. Even the stingiest may spare a Smile, It costs nothing. Refusal Is due to plain meanness. Cheerfulness in a good partner in business, li helps wonderfully fn making money and is Indispensable in truly enjoying it when made. The traveling salesman furnishes good example of the actual cash raiue of cheerfulness in business. His stories, his jokes and his hearty laugh clinch many a contract that has been held open for him because, he is a good I'eilow. People instinctively fall Into a habit of going 10 a store where a salesman or saleswoman gives a g'-nerous meed ol' cheerfulness along with the purchase. The lawyer or doctor who is a good fellow more friends and SV'ts more good will and more money than the crusty fellows do. It Is proverbial that the politician owes mosi ol his success to his Jollity. He may be a small mac —generally is but in his veneer of .bright smiles he is acceptable, when an ablu man, without cheer, is 'unconcernedly passed by. It matters little what business one Is In. cheerfulness is a good side partner. Even the undertaking business offers Opportunities where cheer fulness may be coined into cash. People like to deal with the cheerful man. it make business a .pleasure. Besides, the cheerful man is usually more honest than the sour tnan--anyw ay, he is more trusted. THE LION OF THE TRANSVAAL. It the sculptured group of Thorwaldscn's Lions of Lucerne —sym- bolic of the death struggles of the heroic Pisiss Guard—find In the beholder a response that touches to tears, What --hall be said of that pathetic figure of his time, the living lion of the Transvaal, Oom Paul fcruger? Lone as Kapoleon mi Helena, silent as Cram.'unyielding as Rich '»rd tho Lion-Hearted, devout as Isaiah, the heroic outlines of Paul 'Krttger will always loom large on the horizon of Africa's bloody his tory. When others surrendered, the venerable lion roared and refused. And now the old man must perforce drink a, bitter cup to its dregs. He is compelled to ask his dearest foe, Joseph Chamberlain, for permission to return to South Africa to die. His big heart, like that of mighty Caesar's must haye burst to make this humble plea. Because to Paul Krttger, Joseph Chamberlain, secretary of state for the colonies, is the Alva of the nineteenth century. In Joseph Chamberlain he sees personified the power that ravaged his country and robbed him of wife and children and grandchildren. Nevertheless, defeated, broken, humiliated, neither Chamberlain nor England can ever rob him of his place in history. "'Hope looks for unqualified .success. Faith counts certainly on failure and takes honorable defeat to be a form of victory.'' "Truth lias lost many battles, but never a war. Freedom has never made a fight in vain. The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church. Defeat can never imperil the glory of heroic strife. O: good gray head that all men know. O! noble old lion, wound ed, serene, pathetic, slowly dying with the light la your eyes that pre sages ultimate victory!

England's great detective bureau, has great importance chief ly because England has a highly centralized government. The new York police deal only with New York, but the London police have to do with tho whole United King dom and the British empire. Local police forces In England deal with little crimes, but when they amount to anything down comes a detective from Scotland Yard to take things in charge. Two years ago there was a sensational murder on the beach at Yarmouth, a woman having been strangled with a shoe string - The Yarmouth chief was passed over In the inves tigation. He came up to London to see about it and assert bis own im portance. He bad an unsatisfactory interview at the Yard and on his way home missed his watch. The next morning he received it by mail "with the compliments of Scotland Yard." The intimation was that a man who did not know enough to keep his watch did not know enough to find a murderer. So the i larmouth chief left things to the London detectives, who soon found the criminal. The origin of the name Scotland Yard Is involved In mystery. One account says that the name comes from the place where Scottish troops were at one time quartered in Cromwell's time. There is no ap parent reason why this institution should be so named. It stands be neath the shadow of the houses of parliament and has no more con nection with Scotland than with any other quarter of the British dominions. The chief commissioner, Sir Ed ward Bradford, who controls the Vienna: There are only 24 men of wealth in Austria whose Vienna rolls run Into seven figures. Calcutta: The towns of Kioto and Nagoya are lighting for the i possession of some fragments of: the bones of the prophet Buddha, and considerable blood has been 1 shed over these "bones of conten tion." Berlin: The general impression here is that the kaiser's visit to England won't do the fatherland any good. Germans are always 1 j finding fault. They at least didn't Wave to listen to any war lord [speeches while Willie was away. WITH KING EDWARD WHEREVER HE GOES. WILLIAM MELVILLE OF SCOTLAND YARDS 18 THE SHERLOCK HOLMES OF REAL LIFE AND HE GUARDS THE KING—STORY OF THE FAMOUS DETECTIVE DEPARTMENT OF ENGLAND FAVORITE GERMAN ACTRESS. IRKNK THIESCH. i f" BBRLIN, Dec. B.—Frl. Irene Triesch is probably the most admired actress in Berlin this season. She is a beautiful woman and is con nected with the company which occupies the Royal theater. CAME UNDER THE SEA. THE SPOKANE PKEStfr WONO*I, DECEMBEIv 8, 1902. whole machinery of the Yard, is an Irishman. Donald Swanson and William Melville, his lieutenants, are Scotch and Irish respectively. The latter holds the more responsi ble office of the two, because he is the head of what is known as the political and foreign department. He is responsible for the prevention of offenses against tho state, tho safety ot royalty, when traveling at home or abroad, and also for the safety of royal personages visiting England. He is. in fact, the king's most confidential traveling com panion. Melville is a remarkable man in many ways. Born of humble parents lin the wilds of Kerry in IrelAnd, un der ordinary circumstances] in his own country he would have grown up a rebellious subject, yet. he is now entrusted with confidences which weigh so heavily on him that he looks old before he has reached what is considered the prime of life. He received a modest education as a boy. but he Is now a linguist of no mean attainments. His offlce of chief superintendent was [created specially to mark the government's appreciation of his ability. All his chief lieutenants are Irishmen, too, and Englishmen watch their promo tion with jealous eyes, but there is no question about such promotion being purely the result of merit. Melville and his subordinates lhave brought dozens of their own i countrymen to justice for dynamite | and other outrages. Irish-Ameri cans like Ball, Ivory and Gallagher fell into their hands. While every man connected with Scotland Yard is charged with the i responsibility of preventing crime Of all kinds, Melville and his staff are devoted more to the tracking of London: Colonial Secretary Chamberlain will have an American manager for his South African tour. He took his wife with him. j St. Petersburg: The c/.ar is said to be suffering from melancholy. He has probably been reading about that Moscow peasant, who is the father of 24 sons. London: Next spring King Ed ward will entertain the czar, King George of Greece, Oscar of Sweden and Victor Emmanuel of Italy. The ' bunting season then being over. ! they will probably be requested to ! bring their Ashing tackle and a can of bait, anarchists, dynamiters, spies and the personal protection of royalty than they are to the capture of burglars or petty thieves. Donald Swanson and his staff are responsi ble for the latter offenses. Melville is acknowledged to be the ' - Sherlock Holmes" of the de tective force, and in the art of makeup and disguise he has no equal. He haß slept in prison cells with prisoners whose identity could not be established otherwise, and, pretending to be a prisoner himself, succeeded In getting information which afterwards led to their con viction. This was his chief occupa tion for years before he was pro moted to the department he now controls. The conviction of forgers is one of the most difficult tasks of the detective department. The prison authorities give every facility to prisoners under remand to commun icate with their friends, but the forger is adverse to taking advan tage of It. This is how such a man Is trapped. An expert in handwrit ing Is kept at Scotland Yard. He sets into communication with a friend of the prisoners, gets a speci men of the friend's handwriting. Writes a letter to the prisoner pur porting to have come from his friend, and in an innocent moment the prisoner commits himself to* paper. In the same way letters art written to burglars in the language they employ, to watch-snatchers, coiners, etc. Of course, the prison officials assist the police in all these undertakings, hut only officers of high rank are entrusted with such confidences. Officers of the detective depart ment who show an aptitude for ac quiring a knowledge of street slang, that is, the language in which the costermonger, the racing man, or the saloon loafer communicate, are marked for every promotion, lie cause it is from those classes the majority of petty thieves are re cruited. Photographs of all confirmed criminals are kept in the "museum ' at Scotland Yard. This museum it self is one of London's institutions and it is visited daily by travelers from all parts of the world. Admission into the offices is by no means an easy task, especially sine the dynamite outrage that was perpetrated at the old building near by some years ago. Dong before one reaches the main entrance you are carefully scrutinized by a smart of ficer in uniform. If you bear no suspicious characteristics you ar? allowed to pass on. Inside you are asked the object of your visit by a plain clothes man, who weighs you up with a critical eye. Then two or three other officers will pass you by. apparently quite heedless of your presence, but in reality they watch every move you make. There are secrets in these offices which the king himself would like to know, but which are the sacred possessions of the chief commis sioner and his superintendents, Melville and Swanson. Scotland Yard likes an atmosphere of mys tery and- ah-nns publicity as likely to remove some of the glamor. J HOW THE MUTOSCOPE CAME IN HANDY. Living Picture Machine Identified Sir Hiram Maxim at a Criti- .. cal Moment. LONDON, Dec. B.—The remark iable use to which a mutoscope as a recorder of living events may he put to was well Illustrated in a lit jtle incident, which happened in con jnection with the visit of Sir Hiram j and Lady Maxim al a southern watering place near Brighton a few ! days since. | The famous gunmaker, when he i was getting ready to return to town, presented a check to the ho tel proprietor in payment of his bill. The proprietor said it was a rule of the house, not to accept j echeks, and especially from total strangers. "You must pardon me," Ihe apologised to Sir Hiram, "but I J don't know whether you are the < man yon say you are or not." The inventor readily appreciated j the force of tho landlord's remark. He was in rather of a quandary and I stammered out that he did not have sufficient ready money with him to J pay his bill." Hut Lady Maxim had a happy thought and avoided what might have been an awkward situa tion. I She told (lie proprietor that, if he j would go with her tothe pier, put a ! jenny in the slot of the mutoscope, turn tho handle, he would see a j "living picture" of Sir Hiram firing js maxim gun in the presence of the : shah of Persia. i The hotelkeeper acted on the sug gestion, and, returning, admitted that the distinguished visitor was ! really Sir Hiram, and, of course, he "violated" the rule of the house so far as to accept the check, with j profuse apologies.
