How Eben Struck His Gait By JOHN H. RAFTERT. I Q OACH & Lufkin, Attorneys at Jl Law." That was the firm name, but everybody, including the office boy and the bookkeeper, knew that Luf kin, Eben Lufkin, didn't amount to much either in the affairs of the office, as a lawyer or as an individual. He was older than Judge Koach, slimmer, lower, more silent, an old-fashioned bachelor. As a matter of fact his posi- . tion in the firm was more that of chief cierK man partner, ite wroxe mosi oi the letters "by hand," a small, beau tiful, legible hand, of which he was proud. Judge Roach "made allow ances" for "Eben," as he called him. They had been classmates at college, and the judge remembered that Luf kin tad been his guide, counselor and friend at school. In business, though, things were different, ach was as- j aertive, confident, pus! -. He had up- j to-date .methods and e up-to-date Clothes. Lufkin had I. scholarship i without any ability to 'get there." j Roach was one of those men who would ; hare succeeded from section hand to auperintendency. He got "next" to j everything. After ten years of profit- j able law practice he began to regard -Eben more as one of the office fixtures j .Tin-n no a friend nnrl prmnl- ' 1 . . ! . Reins- wealthv bv inheritance, the division of profits with Lufkin didnt matter to Judsre Roach, but his part- i ner's cautious, hesitating, methodical ; ways began to seem irksome. Lufkin Imagined that he was the "safety" of the partnershiT Roach began to think lie was a hindrance, a dead weight. He j no longer felt the need of an adviser, j end he resented criticism. Eben sel 3om ventured to interfere with affairs, but Roach "felt" that his acts were es timated, his words weighed his man- ; ners considered, his behavior criticised br the silent, watchful, gentle old fel low behind the desk. Even Eufkin's rti6ty black alpaca coat looked like a tacit remonstrance against Roach's smart blue sers-e "imlitarv." "He's too slow," thought the judge. "He's a bov ret," said Lufkin to hifn- Eelf. "Wpnder if Eben'll stand it," thought Roach, when he made up his mind to employ a young woman stenographer. "A good wife wond make a man of him," mused Lufkin, who didn't know Anything about the Impending mnova lion. : " ' The . new- stenographer was . the daughte? of one of the firm's deceased clients. She was a southern girl, with n bmne, serious face, much wavy black hair, wistful gray-blue eyes and a dis tant manner. Mr. Lufkin looked at her as Ire might have looked at a strange, beantif ul insect when his partner stam mered an introduction, but he took the lare, white hand she held out to him, and said: ' "Thank you, Miss Gfldersleeve." ; He was always polite like that, even to clerks, servants, and. beggars, and. Judge Koach had an idea that it was one of the qualities that helped tokeep Eben down. "When Miss Gildersleeve had been duly installed in her little correr Lufkin seemed to forget her presence altogether except when lie entered and left the office. Then it w,as - "Good morning. Miss Gilder sleeve," or "Good evening, Miss Gilder- v v- v. ... . ... ... u ii " iiivji v jiau ... 11 111 the office two months before he ven tured to dictate a letter. But he didn't keep it up. He seemed to prefer writ ing his own letters with, a pen. Judge Roach, on the contrary, never had writ ten so many letters. In fact, Eben, who naturally overheard everything, had never known that his partner belonged to so many clubs, went to so many places, knew so many fashionable la dies, was in correspondence with so many prominent men. Etu when the judge bought a brand new oak, drop-top typewriting desk ior Miss Gildersleeve, and had it placed in his own private office, where neither the prying clerks nor the re ceptive Lufkin could overhear him dic tating letters, oli Eben got out the lit tle oilstone from his bottom drawer and, as he sharpened his penknife, whistled: "The Campbells Are Com ing" in a weird and dreary discord. A few days afterward he noticed that Judge Roach wore a verj- brilliant rose in his buttonhole as he strode into the office in the morning. And in the even ing, after she had gone and the old bachelor went into the private - "loe to get the morning paper on ' c waste basket, he saw the same i.i-c in a bottle of water on Miss Gildersleeve's desk. ' : After that he began to notice a lot of unusual things in Judge Roach's dress and demeanor, and he whistled: "The Campbell's Are Coming" all the time, to all kinds of measure, and never in time. Roach was unmistak ably irritated when Eben suddenly re sumed the dictation of letters. To do this 'it was necessary for the old fe low either to call Miss Gildersleeve into th main office or io intrude upon the privacy of Roach's sanctum. The judge began to conceive a deeprooted but unreasonabfe hatred Tor his old part ner. Luf kin's correspondence began to surpass all reason. The amiable Miss Gildersleeve was forever taking notes. But now it was Eben who monopolized her tinje. The judge tried coming down early. He arrived one morning at seven o'clock. But Lufkin was already at work. Then he tried loitering in the evening, but Eben insisted on "locking Tip." . "I believe the old fool thinks Miss Gildersleeve has ensnared me," re flected Roach, gnawing his mustache "The meddlesome fossil!"- As- a matter of fact, the judge has found his stenographer so quick-witted, so modest, so amiable and so come ly that he was beginning to consider the propriety of showing Ler a little more personal attention. You see, she was the daughter of en. old and re spected client and she had come to n an utter stransrer. IT-er manners trious, Ciscreet. Why nut, src some of the consideration which is usually omitted between employer and employe? So thought Judge Roach. It could do no harm, for instance, to take "her driving in the park !. after dark. Nobody would see them. He could keep away from the crowded drives and fashionable ressorts. So he asked her. "Oh, I thank you, Mr, Roah, she had answered, "but I promised a friend to attend the concert this evening. It's very kind of you, I'm sure " , He saw that she was pleased, flat tered, he guessed, and. by the merest chance he drove that evening past the music stand in the park. He saw her, her face radiant, smiling, chatting gay ly to a man. . The next day, having asked Miss Gil dersleeve to withdraw, Judge Roach, looking quite solemn, his hand tremb ling a bit, his face flushed, called Eben into his office and closed the door, "Eben," he said, awkwardly con fused, "I've been thinking of course it's just a notion of mine, but I have you thought anything of withdrawing from the partnership going in for yourself, Eben?" " "Yes, I've thought of it, George," said Lufkin, quietly, a sad kind of smile hovering about the corner of hi gentle mouth, "I think I'd have done better alone, perhaps, but it's a bit late now, I'ni afraid. You see, I've been fitting myself to your necessities to long that but if you wish it, George" "Oh, I don't wish it, Eben," blurt ed Roach, who was beginning to feel very "cheap," "I don't" wish it, I've no fault to find, but you're a. different kind of a man from me. you're a little too that is, you're too blamed slow!" concluded the judge, trying to justify himself by becoming brutal. "As you say, George," answered Eben, very softly, "I'll drop out. It'll be especially inconvenient just now " "Why?" The judge was resolved to have no mercy. "Well, you see, I had arranged to be married at New Year's, and " "Married?" Judge Roach forgot his resentment in the surprising new. "Yes1,. George," resumed the quiet man, "we that is, Miss Gildersleeve " "You don't mean to tell me that you and Miss Gildersleeve are to be mar ried, Eben!" Mr Roach wa growing gray about the lips. ' ; "We intended to keep it a secret for awhile, George r. . "Stop! Shut utj, will you! Just for a minute, please, Eben." The two friends sat quite silent for a few minute, and then: ."Ebe, old boy," said the judge, "you don't want to remember anything I said about breaking up the partner ship; I didn't mean it. I just wanted to see what you'd say before I went away. I intended to tell you that I'm going to Europe for a month. I think I'll start to-morrow. Court's, ad journed, and you can look after every thing, including the correspondence eh, Eken?" . , There was a vague smile as he said this, but Eben laughed softly and they shook hands, and when Mr. Roach was alone he looked absently out of the window and muttered: ' "And I gae him credit for being too slow!"

""Come pretty near not having any balloon ascension at the county , fair this year," said the dusty miller.

Balti more American. -A Mystery. Aman has made a trip from Flint, Mich., to Boston, Mass., on electric cars, with the exception of "a few breaks in Ohio." Why a man who made "a few breaks in, Ohio" should wish to go to Boston, by trolley or other wise, exclaims the Chicago Inter Ocean, is a mystery. , She was spending her first month In the Latin quarter of, Paris. She" cpoke English fluently, with a Boston accent; also she spoke German, could make a fair stagger at Italian and knew a few words of Hindoostanee, but of French not a syllable, relates the New York Tribune.. " One morning she found herself in a wrestling match with a' bottle of French shoe blacking. The pesky boT" tle, understanding that it had to deal with an alien,' refused to give up its cork. She had no corkscrew of her own and did not know how to 06k for one, even if she dared suspect that her next-door neighbor might be possessed of the luxurj'. -' The tine of her pet fork she had be on. the ob stinate plug, the point -A her best penknife she had broken off short, and nothing remained ' except to throw the bottle out of a window to get at its contents. She decided,-, as a last resort, to try breaking the neck off the bottle. With a "stove lid lifter" she administered several cautious taps in the region of the jugular of the obstinate neck. "Noth in' doin'." Then she tapped harder still, and the blacking came. All over her fingers it came, all over her light woolen skirt, and over much of the floor and window sill. She decided to have th skirt cleaned, and, packing it into a bundle, tripped off to an establishment where she found embarrassment because she could not understand questions. Fin ally she got the drift of the conversa tion. The cleaners wanted to know what had caused the spot. Fortunate ly, a bottle of shoe blacking was standing near by, and she pointed-at this and "ouid" and "ould" until she left in heightened spirits, feeling that she had made the cleaners .un derstand. WTien the skirt was duly returned the following week it was dyed black.

' "I got in about'seven one night and went to one of them. I had to get into my evening clothes in a hurry and hustle to keepan appointment. "I'd just ' begun to get ready when I discovered thatI couldn't open myl trunk. Something was wrong vtith the lock and I thought I was up against it. for fair.

Queen Victoria made it a point in his education that the de relopment of memory be a carefully considered feature. Many persons have been surprised at the king's re membering and singling them out for recognition in the presence of a throng of people. They tell a story in Rome of the king having noticed in a cafe there, while traveling ' incognito, a restaurant proprietor who had at tended him elsewhere. The man, all unconscious of the identity of his pa tron, so the story runs, slapped the prince, as he then was, upon the, back, exclaiming delightedly: "Bless you sir; you're the only man that's put foot in this place who remembers my being at Ostend!" St. James' Gazette. Jinny Ska II a In a Crypt. In the crypt of St. Leonarad's church at Hythe, England, are 7,000 skulls. The remains have been the sub ject of much discussion by scientists. They were once declared to be the bones of Danish invaders; now the bal ance of opinion assumes that they are the outcome of a battle fought be tween Vortimer, a prince of the Brit ons, and the invading Saxons about A. D. 456. Many of the skulls bear the marks of the battle-ax. On a' table on one side of the crypt are placed two skulls, which are declared to be typ ical Saxon and' British, one being long and' narrow, the other short and broad. The. custodian points out in another part of the crypt what he contemptu ously describes as a "common church yard skull." Chicago Chroninl. Bread Stealing; In Berlin. One of the Berlin courts was o& cupied recently with the - question whether a starving man was capable of consuming a large ' loaf of bread, value eight pence, at one meal. If a man proved to be starving steals bread ' it is not considered a theft, according to the German law, but is punished lightly. In this instance the loaf was considered too large for one person to consume, but on the workman, who stole it from a baker's Bhop, proving that he shared it with a starving friend, he was ac ouitted of theft. N. Y. Sub. ''. Pin Herba. This term used generally in recipes means parsley only, but practically it is a mixture of parsley, tarragon, cher vil, shallots, chives, basil and mush rooms, chopped and sweated in fat. The following is a good formula: Place an ounce of butter in a saucepan with six shallots chopped fine. Set over the fir.e and cook three minutes, then add half a cupful of finely minced mushrooms and "sweat" for ten minutes; remove from the fire. Dip two sprays of parsley in boiling water, quickly removing them and mincing very fine; add a tablespoonf ul to oth er materials, season with half a tea spoonful of salt and same of nutmeg.

Frederick Wright who re cently made a trip across Asia ' far scientific study, says one df the sur prises of Siberia is its abundance of public museums in which special at tention is devfoted to anthropology. Since Asia has been regarded by many as the original cradle of man kind, this preference for anthropo logical study is particularly interest ing. Prof. Wright mentions a dozen cities of Asiatic Russia, including Vladivostok, Irkutsk, Minusinsk, Tomsk, Tashkend and Tiflis, which contain excellent museums, and he: says, there is scarcely a town of 10, 000 inhabitants in all Siberia which is not thus provided with an educa tional factor, bearing particularly on the study of the human race, which may well provoke our emulation.
