Robber Has a Queer Experience on ' Kansas Farm. "Years and years ago, when I was a bad man," said the reformer, ' I was knocking about the state of Kansas and heard of a wealthy farmer who always kept his money In his house. It was in my line of business to re lieve him of it. I spent a month pre paring the plant and then started out to do business. On the way to the farmer's I held tip a traveler and took $200 oft of him. An hour later I had effected entrance into the house and was spooking about when some one suddenly grabbed me, and two minutes later I was bound hand and foot. It was the old farmer himself that got me and after he had turned me over he said; " 'My son. this is bad business.' " I was driven to It by poverty,' I replied. iou should have depended upon the Lord to see you through. I am afraid you have little reverence for Christianity and I shall pray with you.' "Thereupon ho knelt beside mo and held forth for two mortal hours wiLhout a break. When he finally let up he asked if I felt as sinful as be fote. I gladiy replied that I didn't, whereupon he proceeded to go through nie and rob me clear down , to the key of my trunk. When he ! had finished be unbound mo and said: i " 'I am glad you came. I think I have done you Rood. Jn fact, if y-i will come back a second time I be- lleve you will sea your way clear to j becoming one of us.' ; "He had f36 of my money, but I never went back for it. I have often : wondered over the affair, however. I i thought I knew all kinds of religions by name, at least, but one that per mitted a man to pray over a robber for two hours and then do him out of his last copper was a new one on me."

Sept. 2 With delgates present from all thes taes west of Mississippi river represent infe practically every commercial or ganization in the great territory in cluded In the semi-arid and nrid iv- jgioa of the country, the National Ir ! rlgation congress began its fifteenth annual session here today to discuss ways and means to "save the forests, store the floods, reclaim the deserts and make homes on the land. Th sessions will continue until Saturday, and during that time much important action is expected to be taken looking toward the reclama tion cf the vast unsi Mled territory o!' the west that, but awaits the touch of water to blossom as the rose. The live interest taken in the con gress and its objects is evidenced by the large and reprsentative attend ance. In addition to Governor Cham berlain of Oregon, who is the presi dent of the congress, the executive of several other western states are already lre or are expected before tomorrow. Others in attendance in elude several United States senators, government experts in forestry ami irrigation and representatives of many commercial organizations and colonization movements. Heading the list of prominent participants and speakers is Charles w. Fairbanks, vice president of the United States, whose address is scheduled as the feature of the Initial session. The presence of Gifford Pinchot, United States forester, and several other representatives of the adminis tration in Washington, leads to the belief that a lively debate is on the tapis on the subject of the adminis tration policies with reference to the public land. If the subject is intro duced it will probably precipitate as lively a discussion as that had on the same subject at the forestry con gress held in Denver some months ago, and in which the government pol icy was defended by Mr. Pinchot and others against the assaults made by many of the most prominent public men of the western states.

Correct Breathing at the Bottom of All Suu:etu, Sjyj Mclba. I cannot too forcibly In.h;l I hat the mere possession of a lovely Voice Is only the basis of vocal art, wrlies Mine. Melb.t In the Celllury Magazine. Nature occasionally sUtrlles one by the prodigality of her gifts, but no student has any right to expect to sing by in spiration any more than un athlete' may expect to win a race because he is naturally fleet of foot. Methods of breathing, "attack," and tin? use of the registers must all be perfectly understood by the successful singer, who should likewise bo com plete master of all details relating to the structure and use of those parts above the voice box and be convinced of the necessity of a perfectly con trolled chest expansion In the produc tion of tone. For perfect singing correct breath ing, strange as it Inay sound, is even more essential than a beautiful voie. No matter how exquisite the vocal or gan may be, it beauty cannot be ade quately demonstrated without proper breath control. Here is one of the old Itudiun secrets which many singers of to-day wholly lael; because they are unwilling to give the necessary time for the full development of breathing power and control. Phrasing, tone, resonance, expression, all depend upon respiration, and hi my opinion mimi cal students, even when too young to be allowed the free use of the voice, should be thoroughly taughtjhtlie prin ciples ot breathing:. THE VOICE OF AUTHORITY. Guide Was Not Asking the Party to Accept His Word.

Ou (hat occa sion he was accompanied by a guide who relied for his Information mainly on a guide book, which, from time to time, he would furtively consult if he thought the visitor was not looking his way. "What is the height of this fine old keep?" asked the New Yutker. "According to liiat'ry," replrd the guide, "It's 92 feet." Similar replies were made to other questions of a like nature, each be inn vouchsafed with the assurance that it was "according to hist'ry." Finally there was readied a part of the battlements where the hlil on which the castle stands descends ab ruptly to the river. "Pretty steep descent'!' exclaimed the American. "Yes, sir," came fiom the guide, In bis monotonous tone. "According to hlst'ry, it's almost perpendicular!" Harper's. Where Carp Thrive Wonderfully.
