According to the Old Codger, Ho Trow clod Foot, but tho "Snake” Woo « Clooo Second When He Reached Home. The dry goodo boo and nail keg bri gade were loafing luxuriously In the sunshine that was shedding warmth and lassitude on the platform In front of the village emporium, postoffice, etc. They were engaged, as usual, In th< pleasant and unperilous business ol assassinating time. “Snakes'll be cornin’ out uv th' woods, soon,” yawned a young yap who was expending first-class farm hand energy In aimlessly whittling a hickory stick. "Did any uv you-all ever heer u- Bob Dinkins' race fer life 'fore his pap left Troublesome Bottoms an' went west?” Inquired an old codger, with a ■mall gray goatee. It seemed that no one had heard ol It, so the old codger proceeded to nar rate: ‘‘l reckin’ Bob run 'bout a mile In th’ same length uv time t’would take ' to wind a watch. There wuz a heap uv black snakes that spring. 'Peared J that durln' th’ winter all th’ snakes iln th' woods had turned black. Bob wux skeered uv snakes, an’, nacherly, wuz in a highly nervous state most uv th' time. He imagined ev’ry thing he saw movin' was a snake. “Well, Bob ( he took th' horses out to th' pasture one Sunday mornin', pulled th' halter off uv th' one he wuz leadin', slung it over bis shoulder, and started back to th' barn. He hadn't gone fer when he happened to glance bebln' him. | "Wow! A long black thing wuz ' a-slldln' right up to his heels! He let out a whoop lack a Soo Indian in' struck out down th' path, Jes' fair ly spllttin' th’ wind wide open. I “When he'd run 'bout 500 yards he took a quick squint over his shout -1 ders to see If he'd got away from it. He hadn't. Theer it wuz, spinnln’ ! right along after him. Bob let out more yells an’ ran lack a dawg after a rabbit He done his best to git away from th' thing that wuz pursuin', but he couldn't gain an Inch on It. He wuz barefooted, too, an’ ev’ry minit he expected to fee) it nab him by th’ heel. • "His hat flew off an' his hair stood on end. His daddy an' mammy run out to meet him, an' when he come rlppln' Into th' stable lot, hollerin', mammy drapt lack she'd been shot, clean into a dead faint She thought It wuz all over with her darlin' son. "Bob went tearln' round th’ lot lack a colt shet away from its ma, stompin’ an' kickin' an' yellin' fer ’em to kill It. His daddy gazed at him, powerless tack, till he Baw what wuz th' matter. Then he got a healthy piece of hoop pole an' went for his heroic son.” | "Th’ snake had hung its teeth in his breeches leg, I s'posc?" asked a fel low with a pair of green goggleß. “Snake!" snorted the old codger. “I didn't say 'twas a snake, did I?" i "But it was a snake that wuz after him, wuzn’t it?" demanded a gawky chap who had his mouth open, i “Not on yer sweet life," replied the old codger, "It wuz nuthin' but th’ long, black halter strop. It had Bllpt off his shoulder an’ wuz draggin’ in th' path behin' him. Th’ young gal i loot saw it an’ thought it was a Bnake!” —New York Times. i . Foiling a briber. The Justice of the peace was in the j south and a marked state of ignorance. I He vas approached by a man desiring a divorce, and he did not know what to do. Calling a friend to his side, he whispered: “What’B the law on this p’lnt?” “You can't do it," was the reply. “It’s out of your Jurisdiction.” The husband, observing the consul tation and feeling keenly his desire tc escape from the matrimonial woe, ex claimed: “I’m willin’ to pay well; got the money right here in my sock." At this the Justice assumed his grav est Judicial air. Obviously he was deeply pained. Never before in all hiß life had he been so bowed down by grief. “You knew before you came here,” he said sadly, “that it wasn’t for me to separate husband and wife, and yet you not only take up the valuable time of this court by talking, but you actu ally propose to bribe me with money Now, how much have you got In that sock?” “About $6.50, your honor.” “Is that so? Then I fine you $£ for bribery and $1.50 for taking up my time with a case out of my jurisdic tion; and may the Lord have mercy on your soul!” —Popular Magazine. Power of the Mind. Some people give up all mental ef fort as soon as they get sick or af flicted, but there are some minds that no pain or suffering can subdue. The ' most powerful warship afloat, which was isuncneo in ink TUinei in Eng land laat February, was built by a man who can neither alt nor walk. The moat famous of our racing yacht designers Is blind, but he could build a boat that was good enough to de fend tbe America cup year after year. The head of the Thames Iron Works company that built the Thun derer Is a victim of chronlo rheuma tism and passes his days lying on a trundle bed upon which he Is wheel ed all over the Immense works and oversees everything that Is going for ward. He knows every foreman In the shops and has the design of ev ery piece of machinery by heart, and they point to him as' a wonderful ex ample of the truth of the old adage, The eye of a master can do more work than a thousand hands.” MAKE LIVING BY THEIR WITS American Adventurer* Who Have Qot Wealthy Through Shady Deala In South America. Ever hear of Jim Dugan of Curaoaof Well, Jim started a revolution In Cen tral America some years ago, and was put out. He landed In Curacao with a stew and ass gold piece. With the money be bought a lottery ticket, and won a prise. While he still had the money a man who owned a saloon, and who was looking for a sucker, sold out to him. But Jim has flourish ed. He got hold of a seal belonging to an American life Insurance com pany, and he stamps his letters with that, and calls himself the Irish con sul. When I was In to see Jim this time I found that everything passed as currency over his bar. He has a drawerful of such things as false teeth and glass eyes, and one morn ing I saw a man come In and ask for liquor and then calmly take out his eye and put it on the counter. But In Buenos Aires there lives and operates an American who is the pro totype of J. Rufus Wallingford. He makes a specialty of turning out old masters and selling them at fancy prices to the wealthy Argentinians, who like to blow their money for works of art. This chap got hold of a Frenchman who can paint, and he does the actual work, and they dry them with electric fans. When I was there the electric fans were play ing on three Van Dykes. There was an elderly woman, a bit daft, who fancied she was stuck on the president of Argentina. What does the American do but get hold of a man who knows the old lady, and cause him to per suade her that the president is par tial to Van Dykes. Soon she gives the American an order for a painting, and he collects the sum of SIO,OOO, of which the go-between gets SI,OOO and the artists SSOO. The last report I had from him was to the effect: “You ask about the nutty old lady? 1 am getting afraid she might rub some of the paint off that old master, and this would affect my artistic sensibili ties.” This chap has got hold of all sorts of concessions. When 1 first knew him, by the way, he was a colonel In the Nicaraguan army. One of his most successful ventures was to start a watch club. In which you pay one dollar for Initiation, and then run the chances of getting a watch. Well, the American showed a high municipal official in Buenos Aires that In a watch club there Is a pretty big per centage for whoever is running It, with the result that 40,000 policemen and other government employes were ordered to become members. Didn’t Look Like an Actor. Lawrence Wheat (Larry for short), who has been more or less a Broad way star for several seasons, made his first big hit in the part of “Stub” Talmage In “The College Widow." Larry had not long been out of col lege when the Ade comedy was fin ishing Its long run at the Garden the ater. Two companies were to be placed on the road and Wheat, who had seen the play several times, felt that he was born to play the part of "Stub." Accordingly he waited upon H.enry W. Savage, the producer. Savage studied the applicant keen ly- "So you want to play the part of Stub?" said the colonel. “What makes you think you can play the part?" "I’m just that sort of a type,” said Wheat, swelling up his chest and try lng to look real brave. “Well,” said the colonel, “we need an actor os well as a type for that part. Are you an actor?” “I am,” said Wheat "You don’t look like an actor,” said the colonel. “I don’t want to look like an actor,” said Larry. “It’s tough enough to have to be one.” That line got the Job. Soma Wards You Don’t Know.

She ended her praise with an epigram both striking and true. "The women of all nationalities,” she said, “can make their own clothes, but only the American woman can make them sc that nobody ever suspects It.” English Getting Fond of Cheese.

ROSE ABOVE HANDICAP POSTHUMOUS CHILDREN WHOSE NAMES ARE FAMOUS. Birth of Child of John Jacob Aator Haa Aroused Intcraat In tha List, Which Contalna Many Per aona of Note. The birth of a posthumous child of John Jacob Aator arouses especial In terest and sympathy because of the tragic death of the father In the Ti tanic disaster. Tet all posthumous children excite such sentiments. Some of these children have moreover at tracted additional attention from the world In after life through their own achievements. Alexander the Great has been said by some historians to have been born after the death of his father, but ac cording to other authorities Philip of Macedon lived to enjoy the compan ionship of his son for several years. It may be that Alexander's stepbrother was a posthumous child, but that has not been proved. Ben Jonson, the Elizabethan dram atist, was born In 1573, a month after his father’s death. He was fortunate In acquiring a stepfather who was a good friend to him and gave him an excellent education. Thomas Herbert was of posthumous birth, says his elder brother, Lord Herbert of Cherbury. He Is remem bered chiefly as the brother of Lord Herbert of Cherbury and of George Herbert, the poet. Early in the seventeenth century another child came into the world un der similar conditions. This was Abra ham Cowley, the English poet. His father, who had been a grocer In hum ble circumstances, died shortly before the birth of the son. Thanks to the unflagging struggle and devotion of his mother the boy received a good education and his poetic geniuß had opportunity for development. Dean Swift was born a few months after his father's death. Kindly dis posed relatives helped his mother with his upbringing and education. Adam Smith, author of “The Wealth of Nations," put in his appearance In this world some four months after the death of his father. Still another English poet was a posthumous child. This was Thomas Chatterton, who was born In Bristol about the middle of the eighteenth century. Andrew Jackson, seventh president of the United States, was born In a little log cabin on the border line be tween North and South Carolina. In that same cabin his father, who had come to America from the north coast of Ireland, died a few days before the birth of hiß son. Rutherford Birchard Hayes, the nineteenth president, was another posthumous child. He was born in October and his father died in the July preceding. The present king of Spain, Alfonso XIII., was born after his father's death. Mary Queen of Scots Just escaped posthumous birth, her father dying when she was a few days old. Richard Wagner, the composer, was also left fatherless very soon after his birth. Abalone Meat In Demand.
