Cheerfulness costs nothing, and it is the besi capital.
It draws dividends all the time.
It is always going out in boundless beneficence, but the supply is
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
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
Besides, the cheerful man is usually more honest than the sour

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
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
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.

I LONDON, Dec. 8. — Scotland
Yard. 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

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 origin of the name Scotland

account says that the name comes
from the place where Scottish
troops were at one time quartered

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
Melville is a remarkable man in
many ways. Born of humble parents

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

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

The conviction of forgers is one

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.

Sir Hiram Maxim at a Criti- ..
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
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.
