"If I had a hundred thousand i

would spend it all tor bogs at

The lOlks are noted for getting ,
the best. The Tribune printed j
the programs for the I0lk nicmor |

the best is wanted the Tribune
gets the work.
Rev. Teeter is holding a series
of revival meetings at the Breth

day night on the text , "Five
Kings. " The parson is evidently
playing the "cuter" wild.
Years ago when the west was
hard up and owed money to the
east we were pushed and prodded
until we made great sacrifice to !
pay up. Now the east owes us' '
money and the east should be I

Judge Raper lies made many
friends by the fair and earnest
manner in which he conducts

The t'JIks memorial will be
well worth attending at the

Jlayward is accounted as one of

as having the distinction of be

in the state.

We doubt that another newspa

Most of the earlier months of an
infant's life should be spout in Bleep ,
and for the first six months of its
life it should ho kept very quiet.
Too much talking lo nnd fussing

though a child of u year or so old

WOMAN AND HER WATCH.
Wutclunnkera NIV it's iima/.ing
women have timepieces that go at
all , in view of the fact that about
live women in a hundred wind their
watches at the proper time. The
ineriige woman looks on the winding
of n watch either as a ceremony to
be. performed only on gain days or
us a pastime that will do well
enough as a stop-gap for idle mo
ments , but must not be permitted
to interfere with the serious things
f life. The explanation prolmbh
that she doesn't wear it every day.
A man looks on his watch as a con
stant companion , and if he is for
tunate enough to posses a good one ,
: ilso as u faithful servant.
A Philadelphia man who has been
traveling in the west says that pa
jamas are not popular articles of
wearing apparel out there , nnd cites
an incident to prove his statement.
While staying at n hotel in a me-
dium-si/.ed town ho sent a pair of
rather gray colored pajamas ( his
wife's choice ) to a laundry. When
they came back they were starched

each trousers leg was carefully
proed into the most approved
crease. Attached to the coat was
pinned a small slip of paper bearing
the \\ords : "To one lawn tennis suit

The boy in the paint store dashed
hurriedly up the cellar steps nnd

: THE RICHEST WOMAN
5 IN MILTONSBURG
c lr CELIA MYUOVER ROBINSON.
( Copyright , 1807 , by Dally Story Pub. Co. )
The no\\ minister was as popular
ns he was progn" > -i\o. HH 40 years
sat lightly on him nnd his hand
some face and the fact that ho was
unmarried , perhaps attracted ns
manv , at any rate of the younger
fpininino portion of Miltonsburg. ns
IIH sermons , , which were always
M'holnrly nnd often eloquent. The
. Imrdi had horn crowded this morn
ing nnd the service had been beauti
ful .ind strong nnd helpful. Molis-
-v's eyes had filled with warm tears
nnd she had fell touched and uplift-
id until she had mot a cold glance
from Mrs. 1 Fart ridge's grey eyes.
" 1 almost spoke , " she snid to her
noher ! , who sal before a pine-wood
file with n bright shawl about her
-boulders , though the dny was warm.
"I just half way nodded and she
looked at mo as cold ns an iceberg. I
felt as if someone had thrown cold
water in my face. "
"She's a hard woman , " her moth
er said. "Those Jennings always
were ns hard as stone. Old Ebon
Jennings never did forgive Felice
for marrying that federal general ,
nnd ftbcn Jennings lived to he
eighty-odd years old. "
Molissy drew the shawl gently
about the thin shoulders. "You
don't feel any draught , mother ? It's
lovely out doors. I wish you could
get out in the sunshine. "
"Fourteen years of a shut-in life
tenches patience , Melissy. I can sec
the sunshine from 1113' window , and
the buttercups. "
"Yes , I didn't touch the round
bed ; I left those for yon. Mother ,
von should have soon the altar it
was a blaxe of golden glory ! And
if you only could have heard the
choir ! And the sermon ! "
"T have boon listening to a mock
ing bird all the morning. I don't
believe your boys and girls could
beat that , Mclis'sy. What was the
text of the sermon ? "
"Even unto seventy times seven , "
said Melissy. "It was so beautiful ,
mother , and so helpful. Tic said "
"And so Patience IFartridge didn't
speak to you ? "
Melissy stopped abruptly and as
her eyes met her mother's her face
"Oh , mother , I know 1 am a wick
ed , wicked woman ! But I cannot
forgive her ! What right had she to
come between me and my happiness ?
There is so little in my life that 1
have ever had that I wanted "
"So little ! Only yesterday you
told me you wore the richest woman
in Miltonsburg ! Why. Meliss\ !
You are rich. You have more love
than anyone I know. " There isn't a
home in this town that you haven't
helped or gladdened in some way ,
nnd where there isn't a place re
served in some heart for you. You
are the busiest nnd the happiest per
son I know and the most unselfish. "
"Me , mother ! Oh. mother ! "
"You are so much richerand hap
pier and bigger and bettor than Mrs.
Addison Harlridge that I should
think , after all these years you could
afford to forgive her. And child , f
waul to tell you something. 1 have
never spoken in all these years. It
was your pain and too sacred for my
interference. Hut , Melissy , Adam
Jennings wasn't worth the grief and
the thought nnd the love you lav
ished on him. Patty Jennings was a
meddlesome , lying wretch "
"Mother ! "
"She made up her mind that her
brother should not marry you and
that he should marry for money ,
and she meddled and schemed and
lied togain her own ends and she
gained 'em. And Adam Jennings'
wife led him a dunce until his
death , and he died a drunkard , nnd
1 thank God you didn't marry him ,
for he was not worthy for you to
wipe your little shoes on , child. "
It was late that afternoon that
Melissy came into her mother's room
with her hands full of narcissus.
"These are the first ones that have
bloomed , " she said. "I am going tc
take them to Mrs. Ilartridgo. "
"They are lovely , " was her moth
er's only comment.
When the butler the only butlei
in Miltonsburg opened the door tc
the finest house in Miltonsburg , the
great lady of the town was just pass
ing through the hall with the min
ister , on her way to the conservatory ,
Melissy's cheeky were \vhite and
her eyes were like lambent flames :
the beggar chief and seizing the body
of the unconscious girl in his arms
he dialled bnek into the house nnd
placed her in the hull in temporary
In the meantime Jlcnutcnil , his
legenonite soul sick with fear , half
lazed by his fall , snt whimpering on
ho stairs. He was aroused by
Juesnoy who had been busy securing
oine of bis valuables before fleeing
rom the house by a rear entrance.
The gambling house keeper had been
iiTeslod by the sight of the girl nnd
10 paused irresolutely , then grasped
Jcautenil by the arm.
"You craven dog , " he said , "help
no to save the woman. "
The words stung Heautcnil to the
puck. The fact that this man , whom
10 looked on ns a lackey , should thus
address him aroused him at lust. His
ialo face Hushed with shame nnd ho
i rose nnd helped Qucsney raise the

seriously \\ounded , gained the shcl-
cr of the hallway just ns Qucsney

Five strong men , musters of their
vcnpons , might have held that nar
row passage for a long time , but
Quesney with a groan realized in a
lash that it was but a question of
ninutes. Kven as the thought came

At last the blood of his ancestor *

His Rapier Flashed Hither and Thither.
Fresh , unwounded , with a strange
wild lust of fighting thrilling him
Hcautonil dashed into the fray. His
rapier flashed hither nnd thither and
its thrust was sure nnd true.
One by one his companions fell
until ho stood alone. Hlood was
pouring from half a dozen wounds ,
but still he fought on invincible and
the toll of dead at his feet grew
greater. Suddenly his foes fell back
and with a wild yell of fear fled.
Down the street came at a charge a
squadron of dragoons. BeauteniPs
sword dropped from his hand , ho
staggered forward , throw up his
hands with n wild shout : "I have
redeemed , " and fell dead.
