The citi zen In question told them to go to a certain man whom he thought kept a little apple juice on tap. The follows hurried along until they arrived at this man's house, and were met at the door by the gentleman, who took them for ' spotters and therefore turned them away. In some manner oi- Tinother he learned the man's name who sent them there and started out xo find him. He did not have to go far before he locat ed his man and proceeded at once to rake him over the coals. Xow this man did not stand for any of this, but politely offered to do him up If he did not cease his talk. The man then de parted, sadder but wiser. Xotes.

Xew Jersey, the land of oddities, comes to the front again with a phe nomenal matrimonial agreement, ab solutely without a parallel anywhere, asserts the Xew York Post. Soma time ago Hugo Krsig and his wife, of Haw thorne, had a quarrel and separated. He soon wearied of the condition and loneliness into which the disagree ment had plunged him and prayed to be restored to har favor. The only condition upon whioh she would cou- I I HI ( SSN ? If- 3 Jffll TAKIXG HIS LITTLE! OATH. sent to a reunion was that he sub scribe to the following oath: "In consideration of the fact that my wife allows me to return home and reside there and enjoy her companion ship, love and care, I, Hugo Keig, do hereby promise to begin anew, treat my wife properly, and return home be fore ten o'elook when not absent on mutual engagements. "I do promise to work for her and supporther as- my position in life will allow. ''I do promise further to attend prayer meeting-, to abstain from all intoxicating liquor, also from tobacco and cigars, and in future to conduct myself in a strictly decent, sober and orderly manner." Oath taken before a magistrate by Hugo Kxeig at Haw thorne, X. J. - Mrs. Kreig wrote out the oath. At first it staggered him. He walked about the village for two weeks cogitating snd wavering. Then he resolved to do U and called In ST"agistrate John Keys. "I'm tired of eating cold dinners-and having nowhere to live," he said. "My wife is the best little woman in Jersey, and I'm going to take that oath, and stick to it. if I ca.n." The magistrate was a little opposed to the oath. '"There aren't any wings on your shoulders." he said, "and I don't believe you can keep it." But Kreig said he could, and the oath waa administered. HOW HE WON FREEDOM. JatlcT Daughter and a Saw Help k Toanar Truant to Escape from a Calaboose THE LANCE IN WARFARE. At Preent It I Xot Very Danscroul -Woanili Can lie Easily Cnreii. When the war in the Transvaal broke out Dr. Frederick Sehaffer, a distin guished German army surgeon, ob tained permission to accompany the British troops, his object beingto ascer tain to what extent he lance is effect ive as a weapon in war. During the campaign he devoted his entire atten tion to this subject, and now he has re turned home and forwarded to his" gov ernment an official report therecn. In it he says that wounds caused by a lance are not dangerous and are easily cured, and that the reason is because the iron point of the weapon is round and therefore passes through the or gans of the body without injuring them to any great extent. "Being such a humane weapon," he points out, "the lanse is by no means as valuable in war as is generally supposed. Xeverthe less it oan be made a dangtrous weapon by merely ehangins the form of its point, and if the military authorities steoide to retain it as a portion of the equipment of cavalry this should aer tainly be done." This suggestion is exciting a. good deal of eommsnt in Europe. The FrankiortGaiette, apparent! y appalled at the thought cf transforming a hu mane weapon into a cruel one, says sar castically: "We propose that the point of the lane a ba made of such a shape that it will lacerate every organ in the body and . reader the cure of every wound utterly impossible. Further more, it will be well for the authorities to seriously consider the advisability of impregnating the point of the lance with some deadly poison." Plenty of Apples.

Acscuuieiy toss Makes the food more delicious and wholesome A boy tramp of the variety that goes west to fight Indians every spring found himself incarcerated as a va grant in a town some hundreds of miles distant from his native city of Chicago.

EXPOSITION MUSIC. i Berlin Paper Says Klnsr Eilwnrd VII. Owes the Kaiser 24,000, 000 Marks. RUNNING FOR DEAR LIFE. The Vorwaerts (socialist organ) late ly printed a remarkable story to the ef fect that Empercr William's sudden de parture for England waa not only due to a desire to bid farewell to his dying grandmother, but still more to the prince of Wales' urgent wish to settle a private debt afiair to the emperor be fore ascending the throne. This debt, the Vorwaerts asserted, amounted to 24.000,000 marks, whieh Emperor Fred erick, immediately aftar beginning his rige, leaned the prince of Wales in or iar to plaoe the latter ia a position to pay accumulated debts to the amount of 24.000,000 marks. The loaned money, It was further assertid, was part of the savings, amounting to 56, 000,000 marks, left by Emperor William I. Count von Stolberg, then minister of the imperial household, the Vorwaerts also said, vainly opposed the paying out of the 24,000,000 marks, and thereupon re signed. Is official circles here the Vor waerts' story is characterized as a gi gantic ha-ex. From the mest trustworthy sources it is ascertained that there is no founda tion whatever for the rumors, frequent ly appearing in the German press, that Emperor William is largely indebted to Ilerr Krupp and other German cap italists. On the contrary, the kaiser is set only without debts, but he is sav ing money yearly for his children. CHAOTIC PENAL SYSTEM. the log against which my eyes were riveted. She was speaking to me. What she said was that she was the town marshal's daughter. That is to sat, she was the daughter of my jailer. I asked her whether she was placed as a sentinel over me, to shoot me in case I tried to overturn the log house and attempt to make my escape. She re plied that she would like to see me es cape, but declared I had not sufficient stren'gth to procure liberty in any other way except by sawing my way out. She handed me the saw, a tiny one that had just room to pass through the chink. In an hour I had cut a chunk out of the bottom log. I crawled out. The marshal's daughter was there to greet me. She said she liked my ap pearance when she saw her father lock me up. After getting my name and address and having told me she would write or visit me in Chicago she com manded me to run for my life. I ran. Her father was shooting at msjrfan ether second, but he missed every shot. I was near enough to him to allow the powder of his revolver to burn my coat. I afterward thought the reaseo he failed to hit me was because his daughter no doubt had substituted blank cartridges for bullets. What a bird she wasl And won't I see her again soon? You bet I will. Jails have J no terrors fee a boy who wins such sweetheart.'! , - - . Ten-Day Prisoners Are Freqnentlf Mixed Willi the Condemned In Dttl&irarq, The whole penal system of Delaware is in more or less chaotic condition, and this, as well as the pillory and whipping post, may be attributed to lack of public thought or study along corrective and charitable lines, says Theodore Dreiser, in. Ainslee"s. The state jails have the qualities of old-time celeny prisons. There is no penitentiary. There is no system of prison labor. There is no reform school. For important crimes the oounty jail at Xew Castle is selected because it is the hardest and much the strongest; for the most trivial of fenses the same prison is made to serve. Prisoners with ten-day sentences are mixed with those awaiting execution and those who have a lifetime to serve. Young and old, beys and gray-haired men, negroes and white, all are jum bled together, and the discrimination made is one which lacks import. It (s that the ihert-term priseners are allowed to do the small labor, such as cleaning, ooeking, ceal-oarrying, rock beating and the like ia the open court or jail-yard, where stands the pillory, n-hile the long-term convicts are not allowed to do anything at all.
