The next morning Colonel Visher,

"Why not put the two -men to a

"I am agreeable to that."
"And give Una to the one that stands:

"Then she will go to the major. But.

"Leave that to me. I will think of

"Very well. I will do as you say.
But you do not seem to understand
that a soldier is trained to disregard1

"We shall see."
The nest day Hans reached the doc

others, "the doctor havlug summoned
Lim a little earlier than they.
"Hans," said the doctor, "when I was
a boy I loved a little girl. There is no
passion in childhood love; it is abso
lutely pure. I wish you to construct a
poem describing this love stealing over

.Visher came in with the" major. The
colonel cast a contemptuous glance at
the poet, who sat staring at the new
comers with his great black eyes, mo (
major, a line looking fellow, with a
strong '. fact! and military bearing,
looked about him womleringly. The t
doctor brought something, evidently a j
box, covered with a cloth from a closet ,
and set it on a stool in tho middle of
the room. As soon as it was In place i
he withdrew the cloth, exposing a glass
case in which was a rattlesnake. The j
viper was darting his vicious eyes from j
one to the other, showing at the same ,
time his venomous tongue. . j
"JIajor," said the doctor, "my friend, j
Colonel Visher, before giving you his

There is a rattlesnake so confined that i

The major stepped forward as im
perturbably as he had entered upon
many a duty on the field of battle and
placed his hand on the glass. The ser
pent made a spring for it, thumping
the glass. The major jerked away.' bis

with mortification, he placed it a sec-,

as quickly as before. Again and again

"That will 'do," said the doctor.
"Hans, come here."
Hans arose and came forward.
"Put your band on the glass,", said
the doctor.
Hans mechanically stretched forth ,
his hand and rested It upon the glass: j
The serpent struck at it, but Hans was
in a dream and did not know it. j
"That will do," said the doctor.

The' story of America's commercial
conquest of Manchuria belongs to New
Vork, for it was a Xew York engineer
who first penetrated the wilds of Man
churia to meet the Uussinn euKim.-ers
surveying the railroad and to secure
for America the contract for construc
tion material and equipment, says the
New York Tribune. He was M. Sergey
Friede, a young engineer, who, in ls'.)5,
learning of Itussia's intention to build
railroads in Manchuria, determined to
explore the land In advance of all ri
vals, and even the P.ussian engineers
themselves, and to await their arrival
In central Manchuria to convince them
that America could supply more cheap
ly than could any other nation the ma
terials and supplies Kussia needed for
tho development of her new acquisi
tion. So' successful was Mr. Friede
that he soon began cabling orders home
for tho construction material and equip
ment necessary for the building of the
new railway, and as the road advanced
' and Russia poured in a new population
and built cities to house the newcomers
it was necessary to bring other Amer
icans to Manchuria to establish branch
offices in these growing Russian cities,
until now there is a considerable Yan
kee colony In that part of Asia.
"Knowing Manchuria as 1 do," said
Mr. Friede, "from tho pioneer days
of 1S06, when I crossed it nlone at the
peril of my life in tiny native wagons
along trails that could never be called
roads, until I saw the country trans
formed by the expenditure of Itussia's
millions, cities springing up In waste
nlaces. railways racing across moun
tains and plains more rapidly than had
ever railways been built before, and
the whole land brought under the civ
ilizing influence of the American loco
motive and the Yankee electric light,

come for Americans to look at Man
churia with our own eyes and not as
we have always done through British
glasses. Russia,' -with America's aid,

nearest to Russia's possessions in the
far east, and will always be the ones to
receive the greatest benefit by Russia's
prodigal expenditures. She has built
her railroads' to develop trade, not
stifle it; she gladly buys our flour mills
to grind wheat grown in Manchuria; '
rays hundred of thousands of Man
churtans wajres that enable thorn to
buy our cottons, and induces merchants
of all nations to settle In the cities she
builds along the Hue of the railway.
In our first flush of excitement we
must not forget that, if we urge her
to withdraw, under Chinese rule our
merchants would not be permitted to
remain for a moment except la the
open ports of which we ask for two,
one of which, Mukden, the capital, is
a straggling city of 20,000 persons,
hundreds of miles away from the sea
coast and reached only by the Russian
"For Russia to retire from Manchu
ria is unpractical, tt would deprive
American merchants and manufactur
ers of millions 'annually and would
mean that the country would relapse
into barbarism and the hundreds of
millions Russia has expended would be
lost to her. for the Manchurians still
successfully waylay travelers and even
wreck traius, so that it is necessary to
guard the railway for almost its entire
length. Americans are welcomed in
Manchuria, the Russians taking up ea
gerly our new inventions in later sav
ing devices; In fact it was the adoption
of one of these, the American steam
rock drill, that brought about the first
strike known in Russian Asia. I had
Induced the engineers to order a eamr
pie lot, and on their arrival we started
them to work. The Manchurians, who
had been accustomed to chipping away
tho rocks and bovldor3 by band, sul
lenly watched the Yankee machines
thumping away, guided ty invisiom
hands, and then at the toucn or a uui
ton the charge of dynamite sent the
bowlders flying in every direction. It
was more than they could comprehend,
En fhr threw down their tools, refus
ing to work with the white man's spirit
devils. The engineers were annoyed;
but, thoroughly convinced that they
could complete the railway perhaps

Manchurians returned sullenly to work j
and from that day to this Russia lu the ;

out of many dillicultics. The Manchu
rians shortly after became Involved in
the Boxer outbreak, and many foreign
ers were imprisoned in the little" Rus
sian cities already springing up, the
rails were torn up and, the wooden
bridges were burned by the Boxers.

Nable'a Estimate ot Emernon.
In his article on Ralph Waldo Emer
son in 1903 in Harper's Magazine for
May, Hamilton V. Mabio thus sums up
his estimate of Emerson's work:
"Concerning the Quality and rank of
his work there is general agreement.
He has survived the reaction which
follows the death of a writer of orig
inal and individual force. The defects
of his prose, t,be limitations of his
verse, are clear enough, but the depth
of his insight, the lift of his thought,
tho freshness of his spirit, the felicity
of his speech and Its penetration, the
wholeness and symmetry of his life
these are far beyond the region of
questioning. He explained America to
herself in terms of the spiritual life,
he set man in his true place in the
new world, be has kept the conscience
of the nation and established for all
time the doctrine that the success or
failure of the new society shall be
measured by Its service in the emanci
pation of the soul, the exaltation of

one of the most progressive of modern

Among all the remedies in the Red t'ro-j

are few that they are willing to sell on a
guarantee to refund the money if they do

should take advantage of this chance to
be made well without any risk of pend

If it does not do all this, the medicine will

Lieutenant Gordon Will Reward Her
With an American Eilueatton.
A pretty little romance, whose pres
ent chapter Is the placing of a bright
eyed Filipino girl In on American
home to be educated, is being discussed
with great interest by the villagers or
Flttsfleld, Mo., says the St. Louis Post
Dispatch. Fylva Dolz, the half grown daughter
of a Togal chieftain, is handsome and
full of bounding life, with the piercing
eyes of her countrymen, the vivacity
of a Spanish girl and the fascinating
ways of orientals. She Is to be edu
cated in the United States as a reward
for saving the life of Lieutenant
Charles F. Gordon of the Twenty-seventh
United States infantry, ond she
will live at the home of his mother in
Pittsfield. ,
It was just outside Malaban that the
Twenty-seventh had a severe encoun
ter with the Tagalogs, and Lieutenant
Gordon was severely wounded. A blow
from a sword in the hands of one of
the Filipino soldiers rendered him un
conscious. He was left on the field for
dead, but when he came to a little Fi
lipino girl was bathing his head with
water from a gourd. She gave him
some whisky to drink and then had
him removed to the camp of the Taga
logs. Lieutenant Gordon as held prison
er for several weeks, and during that
time the girl Sylva Dolz became very
much attached to him. Eventually the
lieutenant was rescued and a number
of Tagalogs taken captive. Among
them was Sylva and her father. Their
friendship continued, and when Lieu
tenant Gordon talked of returning to
America Sylva was inconsolable. It
was finally' arranged that she should
accompany him, and they arrived in
Flttsfleld at. the home of Lieutenant
Gordon's mother only a few days ago.
Sylva is very much Interested in the
strange " country and the- ways of
Americans. She takes aptly to l.er sur
roundings, and it is believed that her
education will be nn easy task.
