WATERBUIiY EVENING DEMOCRAT, TUESDAY, SEPTEM BER 26, 1905. COMING OF FRANKEL iBETTY EOMAKCB s raOM THE KINGDOM OF SWEDEN. . Bow the Fiance of a Pretty Swediab, , VaJden Came to Her from the . Cloud An Odd Love Story. ' To understand this story from the beginning, your thoughts must Jour ney to the clouds or rather some hundreds of feet above them. And these clouds must be sailing above the Baltic sea a little off the coaBt of Sweden. In the clear atmosphere above them ;l balloon was Idly drifting, with a brilliant sun streaming upon the great lllk gas-bag. It carried one passenger. He was an aeronaut by profession, by came .""rankel. Such is the first scene. The second was taking place at the tame time, only a thousand feet be low. In the park of a rich landowner. on the little island of Oland. ' That day the rich landowner of Oland was celebrating his silver wed ding. Around his house the lovely grounds were thronged with guests. People of all sorts filled the well-kept lawns people irom stately homes in Sweden, and laborers from the Til- THEN HE LOWERED A LONG ROPE. f lage workmen employed by their " host And amongst these, radiant and 2 bappy, moved the daughter of the bouse, laughing and chatting with , all alike, regardless of purse or U- : xi. A mile to east a black speck sank . slowly through a grey-white bank of ' cloud. For a while it passed unno ticed, until some one, pointing, asked : "What la that?" . ; AH eyes now turned to the sky. I Some aald the speck must bo a bird, perhaps a golden eagle. But none felt sure, until at last the thing slow ly resolved itself into a balloon. .Now they could see the aeronaut moving In the basket. lie seemed to i be in difficulties, for a stream of sand shot out suddenly from one of the bag, suspended outside the wicker car. Then be lowered a long rope, f and bent over the side. Apparently i1 he wanted assistance. They could f hear him shouting for them to catch - the rope, and to drag the balloon into the open. I A dosen men sprang to obey, and be- tween them the balloon was brought safely to the ground. A young man sprang nimbly from e the car. Hat In hand he bowed re spectfully to the landowner and his jrife. ' "My name is Frankel," he began, '. "and I must ask your pardon for ap V peering la this unceremonious fash Ion. But my balloon was damaged. . and I had to descend whether I liked jj", or not." The landowner replied that he was welcome, and pressed him to Join him In the keeping up of his silver wed , dins- The aeronaut was charmed. Per , taps the pretty girl that bis host in- trodoced as "my daughter" had not a little to do with his pleasure. ; At any rate he stayed. And, at any rate, he talked most of the afternoon with the girl Moreover, before the evening was ended he had accepted his boat'a invitation to spend a few says with them. And the pretty girl at his side told him that she .was really awfully glad that the balloon had gone wrong. And he said ha was more than equally de lighted. To-day the young aeronaut is mar ried to the dsughter of the rich land owner of Oland. w ... ( i JsfM ) mm Avers THE LENGTH OF SERMONS. No Absolute Bule to Regulate Them Can Be Consistently Laid Down. It Is said that Emperor William, shortly after his accession, ordered that his court chaplains should never preach longer than ten minutes; and it is reported that the clergy generally have followed the rule, although it does not apply to them. The result is short sermons In all Lutheran pulpits, and a great revival of religion! Only the other day Bishop Potter declared that a sermon ought never to be more than 20 minutes long. Differing from both these authorities, we are in formed that King Edward "cuts out" the service altogether, and never ap pears In church until just before the sermon, which would seem to prove that he thinks the sermon the most Important feature of the service. So the issue is presented, says the Indianapolis News. In our opinion, if we may venture to have one, no abso lute rule can be laid down. A sermon of ten minutes' duration by some preachers would be a torment; while one of 40 or even 60 minutes from other preachers would be a delight However, as there are few men be longing to this latter class, perhaps It is safe to say that the presumption Is in favor of the short sermon. If men are to be tortured, it is better that the torture should be brief. And if, as is the case, there are few great preachers, it seems wiser to run the risk of losing a delight prolonged, and to adopt a rule that will apply to the average preacher and the average con gregation. On the whole, the argu ment seems to favor the short sermon. WILES OF THE CHINAMAN. 'How the Guileless mongolian Comes It Over His Smart Cauca sian Brother. "Them Chinks," said the reformed bartender, according to the New York Herald, "Is a tricky lot. It's hard to keep up with 'em. No sooner do you think you've learned all their dodges than biff! they spring a new one on you. "When I was tending bar out west a Chink came in one day and took a bottle out of his wide sleeve. " 'Gimme,' he says, 'blandy. Haft a dolla.' '"Half a dollar's worth o' brandy? Is that what you mean, John?' "'Yes, yes, yes.' "So I filled his bottle for him, and he put it up his sleeve again and felt In his pocket for the money. All of a sudden he frowned. " 'No got money, he says. 'You wait. Hold bottle. Me fetchee money. Ex cuse." "And he handed back the bottle to me and hurried off, full of apologies. " A polite heathen,' thinks I to my self, as I stood the bottle on the shelf behind the bar. "Thi6 Chink, though, never returned. So the next day I started to pour hU brandy back into the demijohn again. But ae I done so I sniffed a little. There was a strange smell around somewhere. , I put the bottle to my nose. "'By rrinus.' I said, 'the Chink shifted flasks on me.' "The bottle he had handed back contained nothln' but cold tea." WHY THE PIPE IS TABOOED Prohibited In England's Hotels While the Cigarette Is Permitted. On the one side of a post card Is tha picture of a huge Edinburgh hotel; on the other this: "Kindly explain if you ran why, in the smoking lounge of a big hotel, I may smoke cigarettes at feven a penny, but not tobacco in a pipe at ten shillings a pound?" The explanation Is simple, says the London Chronicle. Every publican has the lurking desire to do a "high-class"' trade, and he thinks that no "high class" man should smoke decent to bacco instead of buying cabbage leaves or paper twists of refuse at exorbitant priors For this is his notion of a gentleman. And you mill see in many London ratholea the admonitory notlrc against the smoking of pipes. Nor Is the remedy less simple. There Is no reason why any glorified waiter who runs an 18-penny lunch in a drain Fr.ouM pose as an arbiter of fashion, and prescribe in what form his cus tomers should consume tobacco. We may advise our correspondent wheth er he finds himself in an Edinburgh hotel or In a London garbage den. to Isnore any such Impertinence, and take his tobacco in any form he pleases -so long as It Is in a room set apart for smoking.

Cr eater of a Type Known World Over aa Gibson Girl Characteristics Brought Out with Sim plest Strokes. I doubt If it is accurate to say that Charles Dana Gibson "leaped Into fame" with the Gibson girl, but as suredly she has ministered greatly to his very general popularity to say nothing of his substantial income. In appearance Gibson would strike one observer as a successful business man. another as bearing a marked re semblance to William J. Bryan. Mr. GibBon is no. artist of the velvet coat, low collar, and long hair type, but a sturdy, strenuous sort of person, mat ter of fact, sensible. He -looks pros perous, and, happily, not all good artists are doomed to bare studio and Starvation wage. He is still quite a young man, under 40. It is now about 20 years he has been making sketches for the public, and in this period he has spent con siderable time abroad for the purpose of study and observation. He first studied, I believe, -at the Art league In New York, illustrated awhile for the periodicals, at 22 went to Paris to be under Julien. On his return to New York be advanced rapidly In his Work as illustrator, and bis creation of the graceful woman known as the Gibson girl made the young artist widely known. Mr. Gibson declares It a handicap In a career to be Identi fied early with some one character as for instance Conan Doyle with Bherlock Holmes and himself with the Gibson girl but to the layman It does not seem such a heavy handicap. Of course Mr. Gibson desires to have appreciated the great body of his work that has nothing to do with the Intruding Gibson glrL He has spent much time In the study of hu manity first hand, and there are few of the black-and-white artists that make better use of such study. His published books show he watches the passing show, and we refer to a few: Lonion, as seen by C. D. GlBson; Pictures of People; The Education of Mr. Plpp; Americans; A Widow and Her Friends; The Social Ladder. In an interview with a representative of the New York Times. Mr. Gibson ex presses his views of the mistake made by artists that shut themselves away from life. He visits many capitalists, knows men and women. Political cartoons rather than so cial cartoons once drew Mr. Gibson, or rather were drawn by him; and the political satires were very good, too. But society now Imposes Itself on the artist, the publishers call this his line. Although we should say he was in a position to more or less dictate his own field, a man that report credits with getting $1,000 a drawing. Re port also says that the Gibson girl built the attractive New York man sion In which the artist dwells. Sure ly, It is not Just of blm to belittle the girl. Do all successful men moralize on how easy is success? We are not in formed fully on this subject, but thla la wnat Charles Dana Gibson says about the matter: "Good work is seldom unappreciated. It may be only a few who do the applauding and encouraging at first, or It may be many. But good work Is far too scarce to go unrecognized for long, In my experience." When inquiry was made concerning tales of artists who turn out work very rapidly and receive big returns, Gibson empbaslxed the fact that it probably took a score of years to pre pare the artist for his work and that also many years had been spent in gaining the requisite technical skill for the mechanical part of the work. Concerning his own methods he bore witness that sometimes a sketch might be many years In reaching com pletion, and aald he often had 40 draw ings going at once. To arrive at the sure touch of Gibson, the aUlity to give expression In the simplest of lines, must Involve the expenditure of no small amount of time time spent In photographing on the mind the sub ject to be portrayed. When asked if American artists compare favorably with those of Europe. Mr. Gibson declares there art none that excel a few of our own. lis Bads the best models in this country, although he la forced to add that good models are few and far between every where. Just the ones dreamed of. Also, with gentle satire, la added the fact that loiptraUoaal momenta for the artist are not on Up. there la no counting on periodical vtslta from tha 'Muse. ELXXN T HAIKU.

X JjT CnjuiwhAnaGoroij ; IMPROMPTU AMPUTATION, Soldier Submitted to Operation With out an Aneethetio and Then , . . Slept Among Dead. . . ' At a recent campflre of a local chapter of the G. A. R., says the Washington Star, several old fellows as usual had much to say of the civil war, particular ly concerning events and circumstances In which they either participated or were able to relate with the soundest reasons for belief in their truthfulness. Every man in the little group had snuffed the odor of hostile powder, and each had barkened to the "rebel yell" as It came from trenches over fields, on mountain tops and In the valleys. On this special occasion incidents mors or less relating to the battle of Gettys bury were talked about An old clerk in one of the departments, who carried with him constantly a souvenir of that terrific struggle In the shape of an empty sleeve, told of certain experiences that befell him after he became hors de com bat He was residing in the Green Mountain state when bugles first called men to arms to save the union, and though he bad not yet advanced to man's estate, he enlisted promptly In a Ver mont regiment, and from first to last had his full share of fighting. His story, embellished with many points of humor, had yet considerable pathos with it, and is given as nearly as the writer can rec ollect, in his own vernacular. "I received my quietus," he said, "on the second day of the Gettysburg fight. One thing I recollect perfectly, and that the day was a scorcher. I'm talking about the calorio in the atmosphere, not about the heat of the fight Men on both sides knew all about that About four o'clock in the afternoon I was kneeling on one knee all ready to take another shot, when all of a sudden I thought a hornet stung me. Well, it was a hornet, but it was made of lead, and came out of a confederate rifle, I soon found that out, and reported to the rear In double quick order. I had been on the fighting line nearly the entire day, and was per fectly fagged out. "Well, as I could show blood, I was passed on, and I swear that then I felt as though I were on a vacation. I want ed a drink of good cool water, for that remaining In my canteen was as hot as If it had been boiled; so I went on look ing for a river or a brook of spring or any place where I could Quench my thirst Soon I found one in a sort of little grove. It was Just bubbling and gurgling and sparkling, and I thought It was one of the prettiest sights I ever saw In my life. I Just lay down on my stom ach, and with my. wounded, arm thrust deep into the water, drank my fill. I it LA.Y DOWN ON MY STOMACH AND DRANK MT FILL. never had such a refreshing draught In all my born days. It put new life In me, and I rf member to this day that t sat down for a long time, and wondered, among other things. If there wasn't good trout fishing In the stream; then, after a long rest I resumed my Journey. I knew I was bound to pull up somewhere, and I didn't care much where. "I hadn't gone far when I met two offi cers. They bad boxes under their arms, and it was not difficult for me to recog nize them as medical officers. They were young men, both of them, and after a short talk with me and an examination of my wounded 'wing,' they began to talk, to each other about mortification and' amputation, and all that sort of thing, and at the same time Informing me that it was necessary to cut my arm off then and there. They assured me of their regret that tbey had nothing In the nature of anesthetics. I kicked, meta phorically and physically. I wanted to go to a hospital, but they said nay, and the result Is here," and he held up what remained of the arm. One of the doctors flxsl me up and made me feel very comfortable, and the other gave me the oigCeET onnii of brandy I ever had In my life that made me more comfortable. "And now comes the third thing In this eventful tragedy." Here the veteran waxed pathetic and grew poetie. "It was searing or quite sundown when the surgeons met me, and I enjoyed their company for about half aa hour, when I went my way and tbey continued on their Journey. About eight o'clock over a little range of hills I saw the big round yellow moon, flooding the country with light The evening waa growing cooler, and I waa ready for all the re pose I could get I saw by the moonlight a barn or outbuilding of some kind anj made for It When 1 looked into the door I saw It waa already occupied, but there was room for one more. The tem porary tenants were scattered around la all direction, sotnt sitting up against the wall and others oa their backs oo the floor. They were all soldiers, and I noticed particularly one who was sitting down with his aausket between his knees. He waa leaning against some boards. Nobody said anything to toe, so I entered without the alighteet cere mony and was aalp before the second haad of a clock could traverse the teeth fart of Its circle. Tk sua waa high ta tha heavens whea I woke, asd 1 tot Iced that my rooKSsstes were etlQ asleep. The maa with his rt la hta kaees was ta tha tast attitude, asd so were all the others. Tea. they were all la ahucber from which they will aerar wake aatil the tram pet loader than any yet sounded oa earth shall call Una hack to Ufa atila." Aaother member of the Ituie eonv easy related aa lacidcat which eaate aa car JfcJf rtcasl ctwrftSot at et Gettysburg during that three days' Bgnt. He told of a soldier in the company, that went In early and came out after Its share of fighting only for tha reason that nearly every man in It waa either killed or wounded. The soldier referred to played on the fiddle, the veteran said: He was In love with his fiddle, and as a general thing, when he wasn't fighting he was fiddling. The spirit and the soul of music were both vital essences of bis being. His story, however, which was inspired by the events related by the comrade of the empty sleeve, was to the effect that on the morning of the third day of the battle he, wandering by a barn attached to a hostelry known as Jba "Tavern of the Three Stars," heard sounds coming from It and looking in found it to be a sort of hastily impro vised hospital. There were at least a score of soldiers laid out in cots on the floors, all more or less wounded. Several of them were past all surgery. To his amazement he saw the musician, who had suffered the loss of a leg. He was, of course, lying on his back, but the stump of his limb was propped up. He had a pleased expres sion on his countenance, his well-beloved fiddle under hiB chin and was filling the room with music. The most beautiful and pathetic part of the pjcture was the calm, sweet and smiling expression of the poor fellows who were being regaled with lta melo dies. "It seemed," said the speaker, "as if a beatification from Heaven rested upon the place and its celestial glory shone In the countenance of every poor sufferer within it" Hot a Success. "One day, down at the front, during the war," said the soldier, "three or four of us got into an argument regard ing the effects of Imagination. I assert ed, and offered to bet that If a man was to be hit in the back with a stone un der certain circumstances, he would drop to the ground under the impres sion that he had been struck by a bul let. A wager of ten dollars a side was put up, and the next day our company went out to take its turn on the picket line. There was a constant firing, and every chance to test my theory. Six of us on a certain post finally got into a pretty sharp exchange of compliments with the enemy, and I threw tha stone at a private named Johnson." , 1 "And he threw up his arms and went down?" queried a listener. "Well, no, he didn't He should have done so, and why he didn't I could never make out. No; he didn't throw up his arms and scream out and fall to the earth." 1 "But what did he do?" "He whirled about as the stone hit him, saw that I was the thrower, and he laid down his musket and come for me. . He was a big fellow, who couldn't appreciate experiments and Jokes, and he proceeded to give me the worst lick ing I expect to get If I live to be 100 years old. I was done up for a week, lost my ten dollars, and was a butt of ridicule for the next six months." Cleveland Plain Dealer. ITT jLiea.
