How Eben
Struck His Gait
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

' 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-
"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!" Chicago Record-Herald.'

-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.

In a recent paper read, by Thomas

Klngr Kdward'a Memory.
The king is said never to forget a
name or a face. 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.

The Study of Mac In Asia.
Prof. G. 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.

Dear Sirs: I have been suffering
from dyspepsia for 21 years. When
- ever I would take a strong diet I would
bloat up in the stomach. I would
suffer great pains in the head and stom
ach and would be obliged to take to
my bed and remain sometimes for a
' day and night. I-would be unable to
attend to my household duties at all.
I triedhome physicians, but they failed
to do me any good. Nothing did me
any good until last winter, when some
: one advised my husband to get for me
! a bottle of Kodol Dyspepsia Curb,
j which, he did. I used several bottles
! of it and I am happy to say I can eat
any kind of strong diet I please. 1
can sleep well at night and I feel like
nnnther'inprsnn fll together. I cannot
i give Kodol Dyspepsia Cure too much
praise, and 1 wiiinigniy recommend is
to all sufferers of dyspepsia. Mrs.
