BUSINESS HAS ‘GROWN SOME’ Carpet Bags Carried the First Consign ments Trusted to the Original Express Companies. The express companies, employing thousands- of men, and whose physical properties are worth many millions, '.•nine into being because n Boston tick et agent took a vacation. In 18*'K) William K. Hamden, the ticket agent, look a short “lay off,” and went to New York to see James W. Hale, an em ployee of file New York News com pany. On the way down he noted various persons carrying bundles, and some wi re of r sort that manifestly were not for the carriers. On reach ing New York he suggested to Hale that they establish an “errand" line —that is the two of them advertise In Boston md New York papers that they would, for a consideration, do errands In eaeli town for those who had business of this sort to nttend to, hut not time to do It In. The Idea was put Into effect, and for several months two carpet hags carried the express business of the world. Public confidence was established by this time, und two messengers were ■tided. After that the business grow by leaps and hounds, and a year Inter Alvin Adams, who had opened n rival line, consolidated the two under the ti tle of "Tlie Adorns Express company." ’Carrots ■• "Rounder*." Intoxicated carrots are probably new only to human science. Carrots may have been confirmed tippling In ebriates for centuries. At least Sir J.

At the Cardiff meeting of the British Association for the Advance ment of Science he was explaining Ids new apparatus for making plants re cord their own movements. Many plants he had discovered respond quickly to stimulants, and act very much as men do under their Influ ence. lie showed how a carrot got Intoxicated when alcohol was put on It. Its records grew erratic. The mark it made went right off the straight line. A plant will also be come unconscious under ether or chloroform, and recover slowly and grad rally.

Western Union > When Millville graduated from a mere struggling hamlet Into a growing village It had two well traversed thor ough fa res only. The first one had been called Straight street from lime Im memorial and .was aptly so designated. Branching off from It was what had been originally a mere cow path. No effort was made to untangle Its sinu osities. The precise opposite of the broad, far extending street called Sinilglit, It was naturally termed Crooked street. As time went on and the town grew they changed tho name to Belleplaine avenue, hut the old sol ders and even the younger generation very often called It by Its old name. )i was probably mere circumstance il.lt lodged Vernon Blair on Straight street. The thoroughfare was respect al lo and he was of a character that would seek such an environment. Il was predilection, however, that drift ed Blake Massey to Crooked street. Gradually that avenue had become ob scure. Its houses dilapidated. Il was the social dumping ground of the town and what there were of drinking places and the like found a harbor that suit ed them. Massey had decent rooms above a pawn shop. He liked to be amid scenes of activity and excitement and the place suited him. He never stopped to think that the companion ship he Incidentally gained was not elevating, but be cherished Ids lively evenings among men who liked to sec what they called "life." He had ehnrgc of a floor In the principal department store of the town and Vernon Blair was the man ager of another paying the best sal ary In the establishment. Blair had worked hard and faithfully to gain tills pre-eminence. lie had honest dreams of a future nnd when he fell In love with I.eshla Burrows lie fan cied b saw success before him. Blair was uneasy when lie lea rued that Massey had been Introduced to I.esliia by a mutual friend and noted that Ids flashy ways had a certain effect In Interesting Lesliln. her fami ly and her friends. There was a tin tinting, specious fel low named Greg Barth with whom Massey trained and one day nt the noun hour these two met In a restau rant near the store. "Well. I fancy I've set the ropes." was the greeting of Bnrth. "So far ns tliis Burrows girl you are so wild over. Is concerned. I don't think her folks will tolerate much of Blair's company after a letter I have got a particular friend of mine in Kinpton to write reaches them. That will lie Ills quietus." "Now then, about his position nt the store." ••You know that Utile cousin of mine. Neil Trotter, was transferred to Blair's department Inst week?' "Yes.” "Well, leave the rest to Ned. I've posted him and he Is clever ns they make them. Pretty soon Blair’s de partment will lie In a muddle, missing goods, neglect in deliveries nnd nil that. You understand?" •'I do." assented tils unprincipled confrere, "anil I won't begrudge n liberal rake off when I get the new position.” A month later to the amazement of everybody who knew him. Vernon Blair was dismissed from the service of the store. Because the parents of I.eshin began to net coldly nnd sus piciously toward him he left Mill ville. attempting n« explanation of Ids dismissal, and took n subordinate posi tion In Ktnplon. Tills confirmed a certain suspicion Mr. and Mrs. Bur rows entertained, for a letter that coupled his name with a young lady who came from that town bail reached them. I.eshla mourned, but she Imre her grief In silence for circumstances allowed no meeting with Blair again. One day I.eshla was passing n street corner when nn automobile furiously driven turned It sharply. A lad of about sixteen was directly In Its path. lie was borne down nnd then tossed against the curb. The spot was only n square from locshla's home. She recognized the lad as Ned Trailer, knew tlmt lie lived poorly with strangers nnd In Iter sympnthy nnd Interest In nn orphaned hoy had him conveyed to Iter own home. For n week Ned was given tender nnd willing care by the Burrows fami ly. Ills Injuries were quite serious, hut mended rapidly. He was seated In an Invalid rlinlr on the porch one day. when be noticed I.eshla gazing at r, photf.rrnph, tier eyes brimming wit): tears The original of the pie.

"I have done you nnd Mr. Blair a great wrong. U |l| you help me right It?" Am) fb»-n the whole story mine out. It pres*Tied Ned In nn enviable light. "But i'tn willing to suffer If I have to" he declared plucklly. "My part t wlil fraejy confess. All 1 say about the letter ’ will prove."
