Halfway down to his gate Mrs. Bowser could see the care lines In bis fsce. As be reached tbe foot of the steps she realized that he must bave got word that all his broth ers and slaters were dead. He was passing by her to enter tbe bouse, with the most lonesome look Imaginable on bis face, when she exclaimed: . "Mr. Bowser, will yon tell me what In tbe name of goodness has happen ed?" ,"Nawthln'," be drawled out "But something surely has. Are any ef your relatives dead?' "I dunno." ..'' "Have you lost a large amount of money?" "No." ' "Then what Is It? , Tou look as It you hadn't a friend left on earth." "And I haven't,", he replied as he bung up his bat and tears came to bis eyes. "But I am here I, your wife." "Tes, but what of It? I tell you, Mrs. Bowser, this Is a sad old world. I hadn't much to do at the office this afternoon, and I Just sat down and thought of things sad things. I I feel as If I could weep." Suspicious of Him. She looked at him suspiciously and led the way down to the dining room and then started In to tell him that tbe police had arrested four boys that afternoon for playing ball in the street. "Yes, but what do four boys and tbe police amount to?" he walled out "Mrs. Bowser, every day around us men and women are dropping dead and being borne to their long home." "But that Is what we all expect," she replied. "They say the butcher on the corner must fall If the price of meat doesn't come down." "But what have I got to do with the butcher on the corner and the price of meat?

I can't go to see her, and she can't put ber lov ing arms around my neck and call me ber cherub, as she used to. Had a con gestive chill and passed right away. And my father Is dead, too, and my brother Jiui Is dead. I tell you there's grief and sadness abroad In the land." Mrs. Bowser looked, at him for a full minute across the fable and sniffed at the atmosphere suspiciously and then said: "I'm sorry about your father 'and mother and your brother Jim, but of course you couldn't expect them to keep right on living. I have lost my own fa ther and a sister, as you must know." "Then why ain't you sad? What are you talking about butchers and dog Bgbts for? Here we sit In the best of health and surrounded by happy lnflu- ences, and not two blocks away there are houses or mourning. I ten you, Mrs. Bowser I tell you" . Bot before be could tell ber she rose ' op from the table, and he followed her opatalr. She wanted to do something to effect a change In blm. and she be gan to play with tbe cat, but after tak ing two or three turns acroaa tbe floor be said: "And my slater Mary la dead, and my Uncle Jim, and my Cousin Betty yes, dead and gone. I don't a'poee I could find their gravestones If I set ont to look for them dead and gone, and you are playing with that blamed old yaller cat aa If nothing had happened." She Refuaaa to Mourn. "But what do you want me to dot she retorted. "Is It going to bring the dead to life if I sit down and weep?" "Hark to that!" he exclaimed after I moment and without having an swered her question. "There is a ped dler sboutins 'Watermelons!' at the top of his voice! Just bear blm!" "Why, you have heard him every evening for days and days. He has got watermelons to sell. Probably nine out of ten of them are as green as grass, but let blm sell them If he can. The more cholera morbus the better for the drug stores and doctors." "But the cry goes right to my heart,' protested Mr. Bowser. "My poor fa ther died after eating a watermelon and my Uncle Jim because be hadn't any teeth to eat one with. Tbe ped dler knows it and is hollering to add to my grief." "Don't be childish, Mr. Bowser. The man doesn't even know who lives here. Did I tell you that I wanted to get at my housecleanlng next month?" ! "And now he's yelling 'Oooseber- rles!'" i "Well, let him yell." "But I tell you he knows that BoW' 1 ser lives here, and he wants to spite 1 me by adding to my grief. It was gooseberry tarts that killed my sister Mary and plain gooseberries that ! killed my cousin Betty. Betty ate four i quarts of 'em right down and next day was no more." "I don't wonder at it But let's talk , about something more cheerful. Do you think tbe next congress Is going to ' take up tbe tariff question?" j Stirrad Up by a Song, j Mr. Bowser might or might not have , answered tbe question, bat before he could get around to it a hired girl In the next back yard who was taking J clothes off the Una commenced singing i at the top of her voice: "In Scarlet town, where I waa born. , There was a fair maid dwelling. And arte waa known both far and near Aa lovely Bar-bara Allen." "Great snakes, but must I submit to this?" groaned Mr. Bowser as he start ed up. "Here I come home loaded down with grief and sadness, and a peddler must yell "Watermelons!" and 'Gooseberries'' at me from tbe front and a hired girl must warble a song at me from the back!" "But have patience," counseled Mrs. Bowser. "These people know nothing of your sadness. See, the peddler has driven on and tbe girl has stopped singing. Let me ask you a question, please. Did you partake of any fall tonic today?" "And my sister died after eating gooseberry tarts r he murmured as he Wiped his eyes anew.' "Answer my question. Did you bave any fall tonic this afternoon? Did any one recommend a tonic to take your grief sway?" "Y-e-s, just a little tonic. It was for soy lame back. I took about a table spoonful." "Um! I thought so." "And It has made me sad s-a-d." - "I see. Well, let me pot you to bed, and you'll wake up In the morning feeling all right." "And I won't be sad no more?,, "Not a sad.

PLEA FOR BILL OF RIGHTS dome of the Guests Urge That Con gress Define Courts Powere of In junction and Modify the Sherman Antitruat Law They Alao Want Status of Labor Organisations In Strikes More Clearly Established. Massage May Show Effect ef Sug gestions. Washington, Nov. 18. Subjecting his guests, who were representatives of many of the leading labor organisa tions of this country, to a rapid cross nre of questions, President Roosevelt at the dinner given by him at the White House endeavored to find out what labor wants from congress and in what way be can be of assistance to the toilers of the country. While the president did not commit himself to any of the propositions sub mitted by the various labor leaders present, he sought a full expression of sentiment from all of them. Labor's attitude on various questions was out lined, and the president listened wlta ; Interest to each argument presented. Tbe president was not alone In his questioning, Justice Moody, Secretary TERENCE V. POWDERLT. Oscar 8. Straus and Secretary Jaraei R. Garfield frequently asking ques tions of some of the captains of labor. The general Impression prevailed to day among tbe labor leaders that the president's message to congress , will show some of the results of tbe conference.- -, - ' tf The labor lenders talked wrthout res ervation and reiterated their pronounc ed attitude on some Issues to which congress has in the past turned aa unwilling ear. ' w What seemed most significant of all, both to the president and other gov ernment official present, was the sug gestion that congress should pass a bill of rights into which all labor leg islation should be Incorporated and should create a publicity board whose purpose would be to investigate and make public the details of controver sies betwten capital and labor. The plea for a bill of rights waa made by P. H. Morrissey, grand mas ter of the railway trainmen, while th publicity board idea was advanced by. T. J. Dolan, general secretary-treasurer of tbe International Brotherhood of Steam Shovel and Dredge Men. Although many of the speakers voic ed tbelr opposition to the boycott an sympathetic strike propaganda, they, urged that congress should better de fine the Injunctive power of the courts, and they asked for a modification of both this law and the Sherman anti trust laws. They slao wanted con gress to define the exact status of la bor organizations in strikes and wheth er they should be permitted to "so licit peacefully." The labor hosts were represented by Terence V. Powderly, ex-president of the Knights of Labor; Warren 8. Stone, grand chief of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers; John J. Hannahan, grand master of tbe Broth erhood of Locomotive Firemen; W. 8. Carter, grand secretary and treasurer of tbe Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen; P. H. Morris ey, grand mas ter of Railway Trainmen; T. J. Dolan, general secretary-treasurer of the In ternational Brotherhood of Steam Shovel and Dredge Men; A. L. Faulk ner, president of tbe National Window Glass Workers; David Mackay, presi dent of the building trades, organisa tion, and John J. Towers, secretary treasurer of the New Tork state coun cil of carpenters. Others present were George Alger and Robert P. Bell, attorneys for ths Itbor anions: Rev. Dr. Lyman Abbott, Commissioner Charles P. Nell! of ths federal bureau of labor and Commis sioner E. E. Clark, formerly grand chief conductor of the Order of Rail way Conductors of America.
