The debt of the United States gov ernment on which interest has ceas ed, and the greater part of which probably never will be collected from Uncle Sam, aggregates $1,700,450. covering loans all the way from 1790 to 1907. This fact was made pub.ic recently by J. C. Napier, register of the treasury. In his annual report of 1912. There are a number of holders of these bonds who refuse to present them for redemption, although they know that tbe government long ago ceased to pay interest on ther, Treas-ily ury officials are unable to explain their attitude except on the ground that they know their principal is safe In the federal treasury. j It is estimated that nearly $1,000, 000 of this debt has been lost or de-j stroyed.

TOC TOO LAZY TO BE HEALTHY f When one remembers that in his youth Theodore Roosevelt was a sick- boy, and that today he is possessed 0f a physique so hardy and blood so pure that even a serious bullet wound cannot incapacitate him entirely, it is well to stop and think how this splen did condition of body was secured. It was common sense in the first place, and then it was will power. The common sense showed the sick-1 ly young fellow that he could not hope o achieve much either in work or hap piness without health. After that, it was simply adding will to common 6nse. The combination made the healthy, clean and powerful body that can withstand many of these physical perils which would mean disaster to the man or woman who has never coupled common sense and will power in the discipline of the early temple which has been given to house our souls. Women are notoriously neglectful of their physical well-being. This is due Wrong ideals of womanly beauty and conduct have been instilled into WOMAN'S MURDER THREAT TO REVEAL Bridgeport, Conn., Oct. 26.

Rittori's Requeit When Told "Any thing You AsW Ma la Granted." Mine.

Ris- It, , , UJl,iik. .IUK.a, Without an Instant's hesitation Mme. Bistori replied to tbe queen: "Madame. If you really wish to give m whatever I ask I will be? you to re prieve tbe poor man who. as I read this morning, has been KCtenced to death and is to be parroted tomorrow.'' Tbe queen hesitated a few seconds before she granted this wish. But the reprieve was signed, and the condemo- cfman was, to bis great astonishment. all humanity, and though woman is now struggling for new and more wholesome ideals, she is still obsessed by old-time notions of what com prises feminine beauty and what is "fitting and proper." Men have been neglectful, crimin ally careless, of their God-given bodies. As boys they exerted themselves in strenuous play, proud of their hard muscles and agility. But as men they seat themselves at desks, in dark, ill ventilated offices or stores, depend upon nostrums to keep a bad stomach in order, cultivate an artificial appe tite and neglect every discipline to ward a healthy physique. They are prepared for nothing in the way of sickness or accident, succumbing to the first happening outside of the reg ular routine. Barring unusual sickness or accident, those who consider the body of too little importance to both er about are generally forced to think of little else as they grow older and begin to reap the results of their neg lect. a Many a man and many a woman who believe themselves strong-willed, haven't the strength of will to make themselves into strong and healthy human beings. That's why much of the world's work is carried on in such a twiddling way. Without health, without good bodies respectfully cared for, we can't achieve the really big things. Either we play out before our work is accomplished, or we are laid low by disease, or we struggle along "with handicapped en ergy, or we Just drift lazily. Anyone who has ever known real health and strength and cleanness, will never forfeit these things for an enervating comfort a comfort which doesn't last and which, at its best, never equals that fine, free feeling which comes of a well-disciplined body, or that blessed restfulness which en sues after healthful physical exertion. Remember, a whole lot of bad health comes from sheer laziness. CONSEQUENCE OF WHITE SLAVE SECRET M if '- f-rS "t - r ? of Mme.

"Yes, prayerfully. I will admit that I have considered It tearfully." "But not cheerfully. I suppose." "Ton are Incorrigible. How absurd for a girl to think of uniting herself with a man who has not a single serious Idea In his head! And you have always been what you aro now. Do yon remember, when we were children, the day you were brought In after climbing to the top of a tree and bad fallen from branch to branch. finally to the ground, breaking your leg? I was but ten years old. when such matters make a deep Impression on one. and was filled with horror. I can see yon now lying pale" "Oh. that was bad luck. I stepped on a rotten branch." What business had yon to be climb ing the tree anyway 7" "A boy's business a bird's nest" "Then the day you tried to swim from Deer's Island to the mainland." "Another, piece of bad luck I was seized with a cramp." But you wouldn't have hnd a cramp on dry land, and, getting one in the water, you would have been drowned had it not been for a man passing In a boat. Even as It was they had to work over you an hour to save your life. I was there, and I endured a frightful agony." "The first thing I was conscious of was that kiss you gave me. We weren't engnged then, either." "I didn't know what I was doing, i But I know now. since I have grown older, that life with you .would be a succession of horrors. The greater my love for you the more I would have to endure." "Joe." said Robert sadly. "I'm seri ous for once in my life.

"Wouldn't It lie far better for me to marry a mnn who Is serious more than once In his life?" "1 don't know." said Bob thought fully. "Perhaps it would." "Life is serious. The great raen of the world have always been serious.' "Ilow about Abraham IJiu-oln? thought he was a great Joker." "Oh. well. I suppose he was an ex ception! P.ut underneath his Jokes was a serious a great purpose." "And the Kev. Krotliinulmni has u serious a great purpose." "The saving of souls." "Is he going to save yours?" , "There you go again always taking a flippant, never a profound, view of , things." ! "Well. Joe. I don't see any purpose in this conversation. If you're going ' to shake me and marry the minister it j doesn't require a litany, of speeches and responses to tell me so." "1 haven't said I Intend to marry Mr. Frothingham. I simply wish you to understand the reason why I feel it best to break my engagement with you." "Then It's all over between us?" There was a long silence, at the end of which Miss tJritfsliy said: "If you like I will continue our en gagement for another month wlih a view to determining whether you love me well enough to make an effort to show some regard for my feelings." "In what way?" "You can at least avoid recklessness In matters that concern your personal safety." "Certainly. I can do that." Joyfully. "Wll. then, consider yourself on pro- bation for a month. All I ask of you j Is not to place yourself in dangerous ' positions. If you get hurt accidental ly it won't count against you. It is the takfiig of unnecessary risks that ' I object to." "I see. You don't wish to go through life with a man who is likely to make himself a cripple or you a widow?" "Exactly. If 1 should marry one who through no fault of bis own should meet with an accident to maiio him for life It would be my duty and my pleasure to minister to bim. But I will not marry a man who insists on placing himself In danger's way." "How about a man who through some madness lost an eye or a leg?" I 'For me to marry such a man h un- J thinkable." Daily Story "If you hived him very mue'i. wouldn't ym?" "No; I would not." This was said so decisively that It took nil the starch out of Mr. Merry- weather, who. fearing she might alter her mind nbout giving him another chance, beat a precipitate retreat, lie at once set about putting himself in & position In which he could not run any especial risk. It was the hunting sea son, and. though he adored his gun and his dogs, he made a vow not to visit his shooting lodge during his mouth of probation. "I'd be sure h shoot myself," he said. When he told her bow he proposed , to show his -love for her she said It was very nice of him. but explained to him that it was not the giving up of sports in which there was more or less risk, but in exercising an ordina ry care. Mr. Merryweather was fond of horseback riding, but declared that It would be Just his luck for his horse to slip on a banana peel or something and carry his rider down under him, so he resolved not to ride for a month. Being a member of the Excelsior Ath letic club and both strong and quick, he had been scheduled for right tackle in the annual football game between the Excelsior and the Calumet teams. He immediately wrote the captain of his team that be would not play the game that year. His note was received with conster nation. Wallace, captain of the team, on receiving it hastened to see Mr. MerryweHther and asked hlui for hU reason for withdrawing. Bob. who de clared that he hadn't the slightest ob jection to lying if he could, but b couldn't confessed the whole matter. Wallace laughed and asked hiiu to give him permission to go to Miss Grigsby and try to get her consent to count out football from tbe conditions attending his probation. Rob said be had no objection, and Wallace went to the laiiy with the request. She grant ed It at once, agreeing that If Hob were lujured during his participation In the game she would uot consider it a cartae for his dismissal. But this did not satisfy Bob, and Wallace was obliged to return to Miss Grigsby to secure a promise that If her flauce were maimed in the struggle she would nevertheless marry him. Joe laughed at the comical situation and asked Wallace If Bob meant the con dition seriously. "Certainly he does," was the reply. "He may never have been serious be fore, but be Is now, and l am satisfied that If you don't consent he will not play in the game, and without bim we are sure to be beaten." "Very well." replied Joe. "Tell hliu I'll risk it this once," The agreement being made thnviijli Wallace, who was a perfectly credible witness, there was no need for u writ ten contract and Bob began practice at once. The game took place on the last Saturday iu November, anil ( 'upturn Wallace realizing that his best man. Bob Merryweather. would play better in the presence of the girl he loved, begged Joe to attend the game. The request was superfluous, for she bud no idea of absenting herself. Thero was more than the usuul excitement on the Held, for the match was to de cide an important championship. It was noticed at ouce that Merryweath er, who niaile up In activity what he lacked In hulk, was putt lug in better work thun he had ever done before. Twice in the early part of the game he Interfered with an opponent who was about to carry the ball over the goal. Later. Bob made two remarkable runs, lifting the Excelsior score to lie equal with that of the club's opponents. At last, when the ball was within a few yards of the wluulng goal for the Ex celsiors and there was but a rnluute left to carry it over and get the game. I J Bob Merrvweather made the effort of his life and. breaking throilgTi nil In terference, fell with It beyond the line, most of the ":;luniets on top of him. lie was curried by his fellows to the grand stand, ctuii'-hing blood from his nostrils, unci when hp removed t'l- cloth his nose was a spectacle to be hold It was ktiocked to smlthereeii". Ice Grigsby saw it and threw up her hand-, in honor. "Gro.'it heavens!" she exclaim"!. "And I have promised to marry him not witlistniidlrg tiny Injury Incurred during the game." Boh Merryweather was covered with glory and blood, anil h!s battered face wore n sriile that was povl'ively j;re'v .Home. Miss Grigsby lefi the field with out relaxing the grave expression on her own countenance. Rob consulted a number of surgeons with a view to repairs. One of I hem tried to screw the ruined ri'se Into shape, but failed. Another attempted to carve a new nose out -of Bob's arm. All of thee endeavor only made the nose more hideous. Bob offered to relene his fiancee, bnt she surprised him and every one else by revising to accept a release. She said that she had no business to reprove Bob for taking risks and then take one h-rself. Tbey were married and thus far have made a happy couple.
