A HUSBAND'S TOMBSTONE By IOQUAD - Copyright, IBIS, by Aaaoclalad Lit erary I'reaa. When one day after muiiing a mile it top speed a Ixiy breathlessly In I irnifd the wife of Alonzo Smith that licr buahnnd bad been cored to denth lir a hull aim fainted away. When the Ixtrfy wna brought home ahe fainted ii en In. At the fuuorni alio faluted no fnr awny that they Lad to take her home. Had Mrs. Smith dropped the faint Ins business after three months peo- file would have cone on for another three cnlllnir her "poor thing." Sho didn't do It only in part. Aa time went by ahe could get to that point in ' her story to whore the bull toaaed Kinltb for the second time, and then from ten to thirty mluutea uncon clotmnes stepped In. It was hard on the neighbors, but heap harder on her minister. "Parson. I must get a tombstone for poor Alonzo's grave as) soon aa possi ble," she an Id one day when ahe wasn't fainting. "Of course, sister." "I don't want to accept an obituary In a hurry. I want one to do Justice to bis character. 1 am going to write one. and I shall ask all my friends to do the name." -' "I will certainly do my full share." And he did, and so did a dozen oth ers. In the course of three months 124 specimen obituaries were handed in. Never in his fifty years of life did Alonzo Smith receive one-tenth of the attention he did in the first six months after bis demise. The widow rend ull the obituaries, but accepted none. "They ore all good, but I don't think none of them quite do lilm Justice." The minister bad gone as far as he dared, as Mr. Smith was not a member of his church with the wife, and he had been known to break loose with the English language on alight provo cation. He bad said that Alonzo bnd gone to his rest, and whnt was our loss was bis gain, and he thought that doing pretty well by a man who wan booking harvest game. "I tbfnk It ought to say that he died from being gored by a bull." argued the widow. "I must differ with you there," soft ly replied the parson. . "And it ought to say that he was tossed three different times." "I can't agree." "And I'm wondering if it shouldn't say how 1 took the news. Ton know bow many times I fainted away. I don't want the world to think I Just gave a yell and was all over It." Of course the tombstone makers were not given the go-by. When the local supply was exhausted the out siders were taken In. Marble shops from fifty miles around sent on their agents. Some were very solemn and serious men, and some were inclined to frivolity and do business the same as if buying or selling pork, but no rpeclmen of tombstone that had ever headed a grave was quite good enough for the Inte Alonzo. Her first words to any agent were: "I want a tombstone with something on top of it" "Oh. you mean a lamb?" "No. I don't Alonzo was no lamb." "Then an angel?" "No: be was no angel." "Then what's your idea?" "My dear husband was killed by a bull." "So you have said." "I have been thinking of having a bull on the stone instead of a lamb or an angel, but haven't fully made np my mind yet. 1 will consult my min ister and Jet you know." . , And then ahe would call on the par sou and put the case to him and break down and begin to sob as he replied: "I should have a plain tombstone, sister." ' ' "Yes, I guess I will." By the next day she would get the idea of having a weeping woman on the atone, and. putting on her bat in a hurry, she would burst in on the par son with the news. "But I don't see the object." he would reply; "Hadn't I ought to let the world know that I weep?" "The world will take It for granted." Two years went by and there wns no tombstone yet In fact, the obltunry was not yet selected.- Everybody but the parson had refused to have any thing more to do with the case. lie hud to keep it in mind because. the widow wouldn't give him time to for get. An Idea came to the good man one day as he saw Mr. Thornton, the owner of the bull, on the street Mr. Thornton had been a widower for a year. He was asuea to can at tne parsonage some day. and when no did so lie was told that now was the time to make reparation. He had never paid the widow any damages. Why not square things by marrying her? Oh. no. the parson didn't put It as plain ax that, but under his beautiful language about brotherly love his call er dug out the point and acted on It. And what resulted? Why. the widow wanted a tombstone to show that, while she should always monrn. she had married the man that owned the "hull that gored No. 1 to death. The good parson stood it as long as he could and then asked for a transfer. Ami the tombstone?

This reply undoubtedly will be in the negative to the proposal to surrender Adrianople and the Aegean islands. The dispute between Bulgaria and Ru mania is not going to bring on a gen eral European war, but the Albanian problems are really dangerous. There are outside issues there which are not truly appreciated. Russia and Italy are determined that Albania shall not become a tool of Aus tria. On the other hand, Austria i de termined not to limit tlie expansion of Servia, which she regards as a pawn of Russia. The ambassadors, who have been holding sessions here and watching the negotiations between the allies ami the representatives of the Ottoman empire have decided to leave in abeyance ell questions in regard to which they are in disagreement. This accounts in part for the slowness of the progress of the negotiations. LOSSES HEAVY ON BOTH SIDES. Long "Papa's Diapepsln" Curei Heartburn, Gas, Sournesi and Indigestion in Five Minutes.

Tn the January American Magazine in the "Interesting People" department ap pears a sketch by (J. H. Buck of Thomus Moran, who, now seventy-six years old, has more than any artist made us ac quainted with our great west. Follow ing in an extract: "Thomas Moran was born in Bolton, England, of Irish-English stock, and this mixture of English sturdiness and Irudi wit has stood him in good stead, not only during his early years of struggles, but in bis later years has helped him to encounter and overcome many ot the hardships incident to his perilous jour neying over hitherto unknown and un trodden trails. "At the age of seven he was brought to America. Although he had merely a common school education, he was at all times an indefatigable reader, and dur ing his matured years has enjoyed a mind stored with the best that English literature has given to the world.

There : not a nmn in the 1'iited States who knoWg that he is to bo a member of President Wilson's cabinet. There is not a man in the United States who has discussed being a cabinet officer with President elect Wilson, There is not a mnn in the country who has been tendered or promised a federal olhce by ,the president-elect. . Gov, Wilson himself is authority for these statements, which should put a stop for the time being, at least, to t he reports from Washington, Now York, New Rnrhelle, Seatucket and Painted Post that it is all over but the shout ing concerning one big federal job at least. I'p to Saturday evening, Gov. Wilson, had not put a single man who voted for him or contributed to his campaign in which he has existed since Nov. 5 last. The president-elect returned Saturday morning from Xew York, leaving the latter place at 0:30 and devoting his time on the train to reading the news papers. As he says himself, he lias not overcome the schoolboy habit of tak. ing Saturday afternoon "off." He fol lowed the habit Saturday and the only actual "work" he did, as far as known, was to answer the questions put to him by the correspondents that evening- Hasn't Received Telegram Yet. The governor, in an niter to questions, first stated that he had not heard that a number of progressive Republicans in Congress bail telegraphed him assert ing that they would support any pro gressive measures of his and that he could count on their support in case of the standpat Democrats opposing such measures.

Half of Them Could Have Been Saved If Simple Metbcda Had Been Used. The newly created children's bureau, in the department of commerce and la bor, of which. Miss Julia C. Lathrop is chief, has just issued its tirst monograph --a plea tor tne complete registration ot all births. The pamphlet points out that not a single state in the union has a thoroughly effective registration sys tem, and that in I ! 1 0 the Xew England states, Michigan and Pennsylvania were the only states where laws were suffi ciently good and stiflicieiily well enforced to register nine births out of ten, and nine out of ten is poor registration. The children's bureau finds that this absence of good laws, well enforced, is hampering t lie work for the study and prevention of infant mortality', This country, according to the best estimates Connecticut Congrezationalists May Soon Hear Full Sermon . by Phonograph. .

The board of trustees of South church of New Brit ain. one Of the largest and' most intluen tial parishes in this section, Saturday took the phonograph scheme under con sideration upon recommendation of A.

He faid the "shut-ins" he had talked with were de lighted with the prospect of hearing the pastor's sermon and the choir's music in such- form. - - There is little doubt that South church's lead will lie followed by other churches. The ltev. Albert J. Lord and the Rev. Thomas B.

Some of tbe party advocated the theory that physical bravery meant a want of approbation of tbe danger Incurred, mentioning In support of tbe apinlon that tbe younger the man tbe less bis fear. Others avcrrefl tnat bravery meant resolution to with stand fear and face danger without flinching. Some one asked the aur (reon'a view of the matter. "I think, or, rather, I know, that til men are cowards physically. Fred erick tbo Greet was right about it wbon bo Mid tbHt any mnn wbo bnd not known foar had never snuffed a candle with bis flugcra. But this does not mean that some men are not more cowardly than others. What I mean is that there are nerve centers In us tbat act In face of danger Independently of our will. I have understood tbat our president ban said that he never knew of a race between the bead and tbe heels but that tbe heels won. What ho means is tbat when sensible of dan ger, danger always gets the better of us. Most of you line offlcers know that when you go into a fight you feel afraid. After yorj get battle mad you lose that fear. Why? Because you become insensible to the danger. "Lieutenant Eldridge of D company has been court martlaled for cowardice and sentenced to be cashiered. He will suffer under his disgrace so long as be lives. lie is no more to blame than If he bad been born deaf or blind. It simply means tbat at tbe approach of danger certain nerve centers in his brain order hla nerves to deprive hitn of bravery." "What's this you're scattering among my officers?" said tbe colonel sternly, coming out of his tent "Tbat sort o' talk will induce every man who don't wish to do his duty to And an excuse for not doing it" "I'm interested in Eldridge. colonel. and bave a great deal of sympathy for him. I think he should be permitted to resign rather than be disgraced. His trouble is that before be gets on tbe battle madness we all need to make us brave tbe strain on his nerves is too mnch for him." Nonsense! Eldridge is a coward. and that's all there is about it He's been tried for it; it has been proved on him, and he has been cashiered. The next man in ray regiment that flinches shall be served in tbe same way." The doctor said nothing for a few moments. He seemed to be turning something over in bis mind. Presently he said: "Colonel, if I can prove yon a coward will you permit Eldridge to resign?" "What? Prove me a coward!" "That's what I said. So disrespect colonel. We are all cowards instinctively." "How ore you going to prove itr "If you will wait here a few minutes I will bring tbe means of doing so."

The 1912 Mineral Output Largest in tbe History of Industry, Laige figures, some of them clean rec ord breakers, have been attained in the mineral output of the United State for 1912, according to the specialists of the United States geological survey. The figures of coal production are the most sensational, all previous records having been surpassed by about 60,000,000 tons, an increase equal to the total production- of the country 40 years ago. The production for 1011 was 490,221,168 short tons; the estimato for 1912 is 050,000, 000 tons, and the final figures may even reach a still higher mark. The production of copper wag also the largest in the history of the indus try, the highwater mark reached in 1911 being handsomely surpassed. Accord ing to the statistics and estimates re ceived by the survey the output of blis ter and lake copper was 1,240,000,000 pounds in 1912, compared with 1,097, 232,741) pounds in 1911, the respective values being nearly $200,000,000 and $137,154,002. Tbe production of refined copper is estimated , at 1.5110,000,000 pounds in 1911. The production in Ari zona mayhave exceeded 350,000,000 pounds, not only a record output for Arizona, but a record tor any state for any one year. the gold mining industry of the United States was generally normal in 1912, but the survey estimates indi cate the smallest production since 1907 when the output was valued at $90, 4.15,700. That for 1912 is estimated at $1)1,085,168. In 1909 the gold produc tion reached very nearly the $100,000,000 mark. Alaska's mineral output in 1912 is estimated at $21,850,000 in value, an in crease of $1500,000 over the figure for 1911. Of the total for 1912 the gold production was valued at $16,650,000. The total value of Alaska's mineral pro duction since 1880, when mining began in the territory, is stated in round num bers at $229,0(10,000, of which $202,000, 000 is represented by the value of the gold output. In silver production in the United States in 1912 the indications are for a possible output of 64.000,000 fins ounces, the highest figure since 1892, when the production was estimated at 03,500,000 ounces. The high prices gen erally paid for silver, copper and lead in 1912 stimulated production; Ihe aver age price for silver for the year is stat ed-at 00.0 cents an ounce. In lead the preliminary figures of the survey show a small decline in 1912 from the high record figures of 1911, the output of refined lead, desilverized and soft, from foreign and domestic, ores, being 480,905 short tons in 1912 and 4S(!.97d short tons in 1911. The value of the 1912 output is stated at $43.28(1,850. The domestic production of lead ore is stated to be about 20,00(1 tons greater than the 1911 output of 441.187 short tons. In the zinc industry the figures show a phenomenal activity. The produc tion of primary spelter in 1912 is esti-. mated at 323,901 short tons from do mestic ores and 14,009 tons from for eign ores, a total of 338,630 tons, val- cashiered?"
