One spring morning 1 was In the country seated before my easel lay ing on the first light tints of spring green when a young man, a few years my senior, emerged from a wood near by and came toward me. He was dressed in a crossbar suit, a straw hat with a brown ribbon and tan shoes. I mention these details because they are important to my story. His clothes were rather the worse for wear, but there was a refined look about him. lie approached me, lifted his hat po litely and asked permission to look . over my work. lie first made a few pleasant re marks about what I had done, then bo pan to talk about pictures in general, . -.1.

You may make a sketch by which to turn an honest penny." "I prefer you as yonr.stlf," I said, "in that indolent position." , ; I sketched for half an hour, then let him change 'his position for rest, then worked another half hour.

The portrait was unfinished, though nearly complete, and I left it as it was. When I returned to the city late In the autumn I had not forgotten my pauper aristocrat I do not approve or people useless to the world and to themselves, but this man was so frank, so engaging, so utterly devoid of pre tense. He had without leave walked right into my heart and made himself lit home. One day during the winter while scanning a newspaper I came upon a personal: " Information wanted of Reginald Wal laca Chandler, who was last seen near Liberty, Sullivan county, N. during tha previous eprinsr. lie then wore a crossbar suit, a straw hat with a blue band and tan shoes. . My heart stood still.' This wa3 my pauper aristocrat For what could he bo wanted? Was it for crime, for re turn to confinement? I thought over eVery possible contingency, dreading to give information of him for fear of injuring him. At last I took the pic ture I had made of him and, going to the address given In the advertisement, told of my meeting with him.' I was Informed that his uncle, worth many millions, had gone down, with his whole family, in a terrible marine dis aster that had occurred during the past summer and Iteginakl Wallace Chan dler was sole heir at law to the prop- prtv. Since I could Tire no miormauuu of him, a number of photographs were made of my picture and sent to de fective bureaus in different cities. The picture Itself was placed in a window oa Fifth avenue in w York, and the dealer directed to send any one mak ing inquiries about It to me. One day I was told that a young man desired to see me in the drawing room. I went there and found my pauper aristocrat He wore the suit he had worn In the summer, though he had procured a derby hat "Fardcra me," he said, "for coming here, and for leaving you so uncere moniously. I felt that I was drifting where I had no right to drift. When I saw that picture in tho window yes terday and knew that by it I could find you I tried to resist the tempta tion.

Country School, Good Road and Railroads Chief Asenta In Stamp, ins Out the Wars Between Ken tucky' Mountaineer, Saj the Vet eran Soldier. General O. O. Howard of Bell coun ty, Ivy., who has undertaken to put a Stop to feuds in Kentucky and has been riding on horseback through the feud counties, accompanied by Fred erick C. Chamberlain of Boston, ridi cules the Idea of being shot by mis take while on his tour of investiga tion, says a special dispatch from Lex ington to the New York Herald. He says the feudist seldom makes a mis take; that when he sights down the barrel cf his rifle he usually knows who the gun is pointed at "There is no danger of any moun tain man pointing a gun at "Cncle Oll- of the feud problem, eliminating all else, is education. Of course, this Is impossible in many sections of the state except with time and the ad vancement of civilization." General Howard and Mr. Chamber lain started on their tour a few days ago, leaving the railroad at Echutaw, Lee county. It was in the Grant-Lee Memorial hall of Lincoln Memorial university, near Cumberland Gap, Tenn., that General Howard was seen while attending a meeting of the board of trustees of that institution. General Howard Is a firm friend of the mountain people. He made possi ble the Lincoln Memorial university, and his wisdom has been proved by the score of young men and women who have been educated and have gone out from the university into a life of usefulness. , "The advancement, of civilization and education," said General Howard, "will, stamp out feuds, but such ad vancement is, of course, slow to find its way into the log cabins of the mountains, and I am going to see if I cannot help these people out of their trouble by acting as an advance agent to education. "A feud is a sort of vigilance com mittee such as is known to many sec tions in the United States. The offi cers of the law are Inactive and cow ardly. If a man commits some crime that deserves punishment they fail, either from cowardice or laziness, to bring the offender to justice, and the persons who felt that they had been In jured, finding that they have no safe guard in tho law, resort to assassina tion, or, taking the law Into their own hands, they are seized with a desire to mete out justice without the aid of the law. j "Yet there is nothing either north, west, east or south that Is the parallel of the Kentucky feuds. Wherever I ; go I advocate to the people the neces sity of good roads. The absence of not only railroads, but of turnpikes, or even good country roads, is one of the chief barriers to the advancement of education in these feud localities. "While it is true that the recent feud assassinations in Breathitt county where 1 learned thirty-seven men had been slain from ambush within the last five years-have been most furious in the town of Jackson, which is entered by two railroads and situ ated on a river navigable by small boats, it is a fact nevertheless that this feud originated in the most re mote part of the county, long before the mountains were traversed by a railroad and when Jackson was smaller than Ilandman or Hazard. Tmvoiiiv throueh these sections of the country, one is forced to go on horseback, and fur myself I have al wavs rode n mule, because he is the more sure footed beast. By the build ing of railroads and lnguwajs u mvinte nre hvoncrht closer together and the public school system Is made pos sible." General Howard said he noticed that the attitude of the people had changed decidedly within the hi.-t few years, and he never expected to witness in Kentucky another feud like the Freneh-Kvorsolo, the Strong-Amy, the Hill-Evans or the Baker-Howard. "The turnpikes, the railroads and the country Fchool, three agents of the advance of civilization," said the general, "are now making' tiieir ap pearance in all parts of the state. It is true, the Baker-Howard feud occu pied the center of the stage in public notice only three years ago, but since then ('lav county has been crossed by several lines of telephone and the schools have been greatly lmprovcd.- Speculatnrs In oil and minerals have planted their machinery on the hill sides. "The Breathitt county feud is the climax, readied after years of political tlrife, and is unlike in character any of the other feuds in the history of Kentucky. The spirit of hatred caused by the civil war between the Strongs and the A.mya resulted in a long and bitter feud between their families and was handed down to the second gen eration, but I do not believe the pros- nerous town of Jackson will know of a feud save In history after tin pros- ent bitter strife ceases. "I find In my travels unit, me peopu; are anxious to have peace with theli neighbors. They want Justice, and if the courts will punish crime feuds wil' disappear with the advance of civiliza tion."
