The Iison From Disaster.
The disaster near Trempealeau,
which caused the steamer Quincy to
fink and imperil the lives of many
ptop!e. is a strong argument in favor
of immediate improvement of the river,
as advocated by the I'pper Mississippi
River Improvement association.

nianently improve the upper river be
tween the mouth of the Missouri and
the city of Minneapolis. A depth of
six feet of water in the channel is de
sired. This, engineers, say, is easily obtain
ed. The upper river is tractable and
its flow can be controlled. All that is
needed is the money.
Surveys and estimates are now pre
pared and will be presented to the next
f-.ession of congress.
During the interim the people in the
various towrs and cities, and agricul
tural interests along the upper river
should interview their candidates for
congress and see if they properly repre
sent the views of the great civic and
commercial interests that are so vitally
concerned in reducing the cost of trans
porting the products, of the soil and
goods and wares of the manufacturers.

A Cleveland woman has lost her
mind as the result of reckless automo-
biliug. She was of a naturally timid
nature, and has several times narrowly
escaped being run down by reckless!
driven automobiles. This fear and the
mental effects of reading of automo
bile tragedies turned her r.iind. The
hallucination she has is that she is
constantly being pursued by automo
biles, and that big touring cars are
constantly bearing down upon her.
But even in her present pitiable con
dition this unfortunate woman can
hardly lie considered as having less
mental stamina than the automaniacs
who i xceed the speed limit with their
automobiles and run their gasoline-devouring
devils in such manner as to
constantly menace life and limb.
A Tragic Finish.
A watchman's neglect permitted a
leak in the great North Sea dyke,
which a child's finger could have stop

of Vauceburo, Me., permitted a little
cold to go unnoticed until a tragic fin
ish was only averted by Dr. King's

A A REASON FOR INCOMPATIBILITY?
The lighthouse keeper had shown a
visitor over the premises, and the latter,
instead of departing after swing all
there was to be seen, sat down on n
beneh and began to ask questions.
"Do you lighthouse keepers get lone
' I don't."
"Ilovr nbout your wife?"
"1 never hear her complain.
"Then you're contented and happy."
The keeper turned and looked out to
sea, without reply for some time, then,
turning again, said:
"We're botW miserable."'
The stranger changed position, the
movement ami his manner indicating
that he had a purpose iu view and had
struck its trail.
"Wife pine for company V" he asked.
"I don't think so; she says not."
"Then what's the matter'"
I'll tell you. Dolly Markham was as
pretty and as nice a girl as ever you'd
see in the village where I married
"She's pretty as a peach now," inter
rupted the visitor.
"We loved each other just naturally
fell right into it as soon as we met. I
didn't have any trouble to get her and
she didn't have any trouble to get me.
We were married and came to live iu
the little house just up 011 the bill. I
had told her that there was a dearth
of neighbors here and she'd have to be
satisfied with me. She said 1 was all
she 'wanted, and when she eajne was
delighted with the house, which, is very
cozy and comfortable. I was ( looking
forward to a happy life hereby tin?

"I don't know how It was, but we

who had been a model of nmiabilMy,
and I, who had always prided myself
on being able to keep my temper, sur
prised myself by giving it back to her.
Within half an hour-after saying dis
agreeable words to eaeh other we'll
both be sorry and would kiss and
make up. lUit we kept getting into
new ipiarrels. and at last we didn't
take the trouble to make up. We just
let it all go without either of us ex
pressing regret and began over again.
We loved eaeh other just the same
and wowld have been happy if we
hadn't fallen into a habit of quarrel
ing alout every little thing that came
up. " We tried to stop It, but we
"At the end of six.' mouths Dolly went
back to her native town. We bad to
separate. We didn't say anything
about a divorce, but just separated. I
pined so without her that after awhile
I got my brother to take my place
here, and I went to see what Dolly
was doing. I found t!it she pined for
me as I did for her. listayol a mouth
in the town. We both had plenty of
friends and went aloirt a good deal
with them and spent some time by
ourselves. In that whole thirty days
we didn't speak one sharp word to
each other. I asked her to go back,
with me, and she agreed that if we
could pass another month without a
quarrel she'd do as I asked. We pass
ed another month in perfect peace,
then we went back resolved that there
should be no more uuhappluess from
ineompatability of temper.
"We hadn't been back twodays be
fore we had a spat. And. h.iwing had
one, we had another. Doll stood it as
long as she could, then went back
home again. This time it seemed nec
essary, for the ehild'.was comiug. and
it didn't do for her tojbe rasped. After
the child was born I.joined them both
and spent a happy 'tinu with them,
during which we litwln't, as before, a

"That wasn't it," interrupted the
stranger. "CJo on."
"At any rate, we piarreled more than
ever. The little oneds now three years
old, we love her and eaeh other, but
we can't keep our tempers. There being
three of us. we can't separate as be
fore; the child keeps us together. We
don't want to separate; we just want
to keep steady, but we can't. Some
times I think there's something in the
sea air to stir people up. Sometimes
I think I am failing or Doll is failing
under some hidden disease. Rut a doc
tor looked us both over and says we're
all right. I asked him why we bad to
fight and he said our physical makeup
was not harmonious."
"Nonsense:-' exclaimed the stranger.
"What's that you say, sir?"
"I'm the director of an Insane asy

to pass through the same scenes day
after day, mouth after month, and they
will have to quarrel; they can't help

Arising, the visitor shook the hand of
the lighthouse keeper, left a silver dol
lar in his palm and departed.
A year later a man called at the
lunatic asylum and asked for the di
rector. "Ahl" said the latter on entering.
"The lighthouse keeper."
