"So, when a rather ptnekily built man. with clothes originally not ex pensive, and with a pretty wholesomo sort of countenance, ranged along side of me the other afternoon, and started off with "God bless you, I was inclined to listen, and when he went on to say that he was hungry and would I give him something to et 1o eat, I gave him a nickel; which wouldn't get him much in a lobster palace, hut would get him considerable food in some places that he and I knew further down town. "And he didn't look at this coin the instant I gave it to him. to throw off the mask, when he had got the money. Tn fact, he didn't look at it at ail, and that impressed me favorably; lie simply closed his hand over it so that it wouldn't g't away, and he smiled a little and said thank you, meaning it, as it seemed, and then as I moved on I heard him coming after me an other 'God bless you!" which may have been just surplusage, or the artistic finish of a began r with some pride in his profession or which may have meant what it said. "Really, I don't know, but anyhow. I got two God bless yous for a nickel.". 'THE LITTLE BOY THAT DIED Pathetic Memories in a Small Seg ment of Ccral. The two men had not met for years. The man from out of town looked the other man over. "Same old Jim," he said. "Awfully glac! to see you again. Strange how such old friends will drift apart. So you're married?" The other man nodded. "Three years ago." "Well, well. And I never heard of It until I Inet Jack Ransim last week. What's that?" He was still studying the other man's appearance and his eye caught sight of a segment of coral that dan gled from his friend's watch fob. He lifted it and looked at it more closely The surface of the coral was rough ened by slight indentions. "Some sort of token, eh?" he rattled on. "You always was a great chap for picking up worthless trifles. That's a queer charm." He looked up and caught sight of the other man's face. "Why, I beg your pardon, Jim," he cried. "That's all right," said the other man, a little unsteadily. "Only, you see, the bo- whose teeth made those marks he was nearly two died last summer." Rose in Cleveland Plain Dealer. Some Uses of Hot Water. Hot water is far more of a medicinal property than many believe or know. The uses of hot water :ue many. There is nothing that so promptly cuts short congestion of the lungs, sore throat or rheumatism as hot water when applied promptly and thoroughly. Headache almost always yields to the simultaneous application of hot water to the feet and back of the neck. A strip of flannel or napkin folded lengthwise and dipped in hot water, wrung out and then applied round the neck of a child that has the croup, will bring relief sometimes in ten minutes. Hot water taken freely half an hour before bedtime is help ful in the case of constipation, while it has a most soothing effect upon the stomach and bowels. A aoblet of hot water taken just after rising, before breakfast, has cured many of indiges tion, and is widely recommended by physicians to dyspeptics. Thought They Were Spooks. When the southern lady left town and moved to the old manor house of her ancestors she was accompanied by her maid. "And now, Lticinda." remarked the mistress, as she showed the maid through the gloomy old mansion, "here are the haunts of my great grandparents." The next day Luanda packed her trunk and started for the station. "Rut what in the world is the mat ter?" demanded her mistress, in sur prise. "Haven't we treated you right?" "Oh. yes," assured Lucinda. keeping an eye on the dark, wide hallways. "Then why in the world are you leaving without notice?" "Ah can't help it. missus; Ah can't help it.

W. wc r" pla mat"s in childhood, Mary Grey and I. and as we grew to womanhood our friendship grew stili stronw till at !a.-t we were almost in separable. I cannot tell how many foolish promises we made to each other, for we were romantic young simpletons and we loved each other. I know one promise was never to marry, but always live together in MK2!e sur.g cottage where we should be as happy as the day was long. I proved recreant to my promise, as witness my husband and two of the sweetest darlings that over gladdened a mothers heart. Mary still lives in maiden meditation, fancy free. She was a very pretty girl, four yeajs my senior, though she did not look it. She was an orphan, and when a rich uncle in Philadelphia agreed to adopt her she consented to the ar rangement. Xot long afterward her uncle died, and Mary was his heiress. According to promise we corre sponded regularly for a time. Such lengthy, loving letters as she wrote me! Never did a fond girl prize her lover's letters more than I prized Mary's. She missed me so much, she said. She wanted to see me so badly. I must come and pay her a visit. This was before my marriage. One thing and another happened to prevent my going. Gradually the years slipped by, and I had taken another name and my heart was thrilling with a strange, de lightful, yet solemn feeling. Rut Mary Grey, my girlhood friend, was not for gotten. I wanted her to share my joy. I wanted to say to her: "Here is my husband and your brother, Mary, sweet sister." I wanted to lay my first-born in her arms and say: "He is mine, Mary. Love him for my sake." Rut the poor girl was tied down in her New England home. She still wrote to me occasionally, and I to her, but not so often, for other du ties claimed our attention. I talked about Mary so much that at last Charlie grew tired of hearing her name and began to tease me. "Your friend is an old maid, isn't she, Lucy?" he asked me one even ing. "An old maid!" I replied, indignant ly. "No, indeed, sir; she is not an old maid." At last Mary agreed to pay us a visit. What a time I did have in planning for her reception. She was an heiress, and. I feared, might think our little home very poor indeed. True, it was comfortable, and all tliai Charlie and I cared for, but Mary was rich and used to much grander sur roundings, I mused. The glad day arrived, and Charlie was to bring our guest from the sta tion in time for lunch. When I heard the carriage I ran eagerly to meet Mary. Rut was that Mary: that tall, thin, sallow, dignified woman, who looked as if she had certainly "swal lowed a poker." so straight and stiff did she appear? It was Mary beyond a doubt, for she kissed me quite warmly and said I had changed very little since she last saw me. She was dressed very elegantly, but not tastefully, and she had lost several of her front teeth. In short, she looked anything but the pretty, delicate Mary Grey 1 had known and loved. "Are you not dreadfully bothered with your childien, Lucy?" she asked me after luncheon, "or are you .fond of them?" "Passionately," I cried, as 1 caught my darling Home in my arms and kissed her rosy mouth. "It is very fortunate that you like them." she replied. "I do not like them. I know very little about chil dren, never having lived much with ;hem." My heart turned sick. Xot love chil dren! How could she ever get along with us? When the little ones were put to sleep that afternoon I took some sew ing and entered Mary's room for a chat. 1 began by sympathizing with her in her lonely life, but to my sur prise she informed me that she really had quite a pheasant time. She lives in a handsome house when at home, and keeps up a continual round of gay ety. Some further attempts on my part to bring out a line of conversa tion on which we might be mutually interested failed, and I gave up the task. Roth Charlie and 1 tried to make her visit as pleasant as possible, and in her dignified way she seemed to enjoy it as much as she could enjoy anything. Hut when it drew to a close and Mary bid us farewell, I could not refrain from drawing a sigh of re lief. It was such a dreadful awakening from the bright dream of my girlhood. The Mary Grey I had known had sure ly taken flight, and in her stead was a woman who missed much of the good things of life. Only a short time ago we heard from good authority that Mary is to marry a rich widower, the father of four children. I should like to know very much how Mary will get along with so many little ones around her. I cannot but hope that the marriage will change her for the better in some respects, and thai she may be happy, for. after all, there is a great deal to respect in my bid friend who used to be everything to me. That Feeling of Confidence. Hare: I could hardly feel much con fidence in a man who had never been Imposed upon. KING'S MEAL NOT GOOD ENOUGH. Peasant Boy Rejected Fare That Sat isfied Ruler of Italy. The king of Italy has very frugal habits, and on one occasion when out hunting his love of simplicity led to an amusing incident. The king was quite alone, and after walking about for some time without obtaining any sport, he was at last lucky enough tc shoot a line chamois. A peasant boy who had seen the animal fall into a chasm offered tc fetch its carcass for King Victor, al though he had no idea of the identity of t lie sportsman. "Very well." said his majesty. "I will wait here." "lUv. what will you give me. signor?" asked the lad. "What do you want?" said the king, snilling. "Oh. a fianc and hair your luncheon," replied the lad. The bargain was si ruck and the boy en! off dewn the mountain side, and soon returned v.'iih the body of tin chamois. The king gave him a fianc. and then proceed d to divide his lunch into to equal portions: but the t e-i-am. vh-- he saw what King Victor had to cat. turned away contemptuously, for the lunch consisted of a siiiad loai of b'atv. b-ead and a large raw onion. "No. thanks, nou a, . . 'v.- me." ex claimed the lad. "L th..i.,in y.m wo;t a gentleman, but I see you are only a poor fellow like myself." A -BOOST" WITH EVERY SONG. Young Man Evidently a Believer in Judicious Advertising. "About the most lesourceful young person I've encountered in the real estate line," said a Pittsburg man. "came from Ohio. He secured a place with a real estate firm. The second evening he was in town one of his co workers introduced him to an evening gathering ir the house of a well known merchant. The company, learn ing that the newcomer possessed a voice, invited him to sing. He re sponded with 'Home, Sweet Home. "Everybody was surprised at his se lection, but as it was well done he was heartily applauded. Then he surprised them some more. "Stepping forward to the center of the room, he said: " 'I'm glad you liked the song. There is nothing like "Home, Sweet Home," and let me say that our firm is sell ing them on terms to suit and within twelve miles of the city. If you don't care to live there, the fact yet remains that it's the chance of your life for an investment.' " Why He Did the Washing. A man came out of one of the lit tle roof houses across from the wom an's window with a big basket of clothes. He was followed by two small boys, carrying more clothes and clothespins. The man put the basket of clothes down and began to sort them out preparatory to hanging them on the line. The boys helped, hand ing him the clothespins and some small pieces, one at a time. They were a long while hanging out the clothes because of their awkwardness. It was evidently work they were un accustomed to, but at l:st it was fin ished and the boys went down into the little roof house, leaving the man on the roof. He stood for a moment looking at the clothes, then going over to a parapet, sat down b"tweon two tall chimneys. The woman could see him from her window lean against one of the chimneys and by and by throw his arm across his eyes. She found out afterward that his wife had died the week before New Yoik Press Oh. Thank You. Recently an automobilist ran down and killed a hen. He was a conscien tious automobilist. Instead of racing along, unmindful of the grief of the owners of that hen. he immediately stopped, got out, tenderly picked up the unfortunate fowl, and rang the doorbell of the farmhouse, from the vicinity of which it had emerged. A woman opened the door. 'I am very sorry to inform you." re marked the automobilist. "that I have unintentionally killed this hen of yours." He held the fowl up to her view. "Now, I am quite willing to pay whatever the value Bur she checked him with this joy ous exclamation: "Oh, I'm so much obliged to you. I've been trying to catch that hen for three days to cook it for dinner, and i never could so much as lay a hand on the pesky thing. Thank you, sir, thank you." Englishwomen in Canada.
