X They rnurt have been succstiul li: rome way. Z 1 w'" holJ 11 a-ainst everybody that money today counts for less In New VcrU than In any other great city f of the world. There are plenty of poip'e who are not rich among those who mane up what Is ralL-il rockty. They never lack for Invitations. Cut they have tact, self-control, personal magnetism. They do things. They arc not afraid. They have opinions of their own. Motility dincers or moonlight bathing parties do not Interest them. New York I stoo colossal trjay to lie ruled by mere money. Society has been set-ridden Ions enough. Twenty years Lgo the late Ward McAllister ruled New York society. The ballroom was his ille. The books a:.d articles he- wrote Indicate that be never thought of anything outside of diim -r, lat.ee or cotlllou. The life of the out Bide world did ont concern him la the liast. The day of ljizatre entertainments lias passed. Why should we object to an nctor In society? Wc are glad to meet a novelist or a gallant soldier, a man who has Invented something that will ben efit the human rare. They are far more Interesting people than those whose only claim to distinction is a vast Inherited wealth. S TTJhnt iho Sun Tinas in Us Ty Dr. lustin VERYTHING proves that the white man degenerates In the tropics and sub-tropics. Now, the cause Is to be found In the ultra-spectral ray? of sunlight. These rays Injure or destroy the animal cells the body cells unless these are especially protected. These ultra-spectral rays of the sunlight are the same as X-iays, L'ecquereiles rays, Charpentler and Blondlct's rays, or the rays from radium, actinium and polonium. All E thes3 latter rays will burn a man's body very severely if he is not protected against them by leather or lead. The first man to apply X-rays to surgery in England was bun.ed so badly that he has already lost one arm will probabl;. lose the other and has suffered intense pain for five years. Of course, the effect of the sun -rays is not so sudden or violent, for there is less power In them when they reach the human body than there Is In these other rays. Lut they are like the mills of the gods working slowly, but with certainty. Man's natural protection against the ultra-? pectral sun rnys Is the skin pigment. The man whose natural habitat Is tropical has the proper amount of pigment to prevent the sun rays from injuring him. Put the man of the north has not enough to permit him to withstand the sun in the tropics and the subtroplcs, so the rays tut- r through his shin, Injure the nervous cells and produce degeneration. The Argument Against Federal Regulation Ey Ex Attorney WO excuses are advanced for Federal Intrusion Into State affairs. One Is that the States do too little and the other is that some of them do too much in the. way of railroad and corporate regulation and other corrective measures. There are not contradictory, as they might at first ap pear, because there may be both too little and too much public interference with the conduct of business, and both are harmful, though my Inherited and required ideas both lead me to fear the too much more than I fear the too lEJ L8Zl little. It is often harder to draw the line between useful regulation and harmful meddling, and harder stilt to have that line respected when politic! unfortunately becomes Involved with questions relating to business, and public feeling is aroused. A great many things are none the less borne affairs because they may .be or become remotely related to commerce among the states, the regulation cf which Is granted exclusively to Con gress. If the Federal authority should be extended over all these tho Etates would soon become mere regions. The pretext for such extension of power is that railroads, telegraphs, etc., have brought about the commercial unity of the states. But that is no reason at all, because such commercial unity was the very object In view In framing the clause which gives to Con gress the exclusive power to regulate commerce among the states; and as the clause accomplishes the purpose Intended, why should anybody seek to twist it out of shape by forced construction? Notes From Kansas. When you see a boy with curls and a sah It is a very good sign that the father doesn't have his way in the house. So many people go out to the ceme teries to steal flowers that a sign should be put up to this effect: "No admission except on business." Tho women can dress cooler In Bum mer than the men, but they can't pump up a bucket of cold water from the cistern, douse their beads in It, and look better for It. In getting acquainted with a mar ried woman you will find she is pretty apt to say, early in the acquaintance. "I did not know a thing when I was married." What does 6he mean? If a girl lives in the south end of town, and has a violin, she manages to take lessons from a teacher in the extreme north part. It gives her so much greater distance to carry her fid dle through the street. Atcuitou ITobe. 01 O'Malley. General Harmon. A Sign.

The green mountains, clad in the full verdure of the summer, cast their cool shadows deep ou the vivid emer ald of meadow and hill. Langdon crossroad stretched Us gray brown length between the shifting shadows on either forest covered hand. Along the brush feuee grew luxuri ant wild blackberry bushes, heavy laden now witn juicy clusters of ripe, delicious fruit, lor it was the month of August. Away at the end of the dusty road stood the Langdon farm house in the midst of broad, green acres, now lying shorn of their summer crop of grow ing grass and flowers, scorching brown In the sun. In was toward four o'clock of a sul try day. The family of Langdon were gathered on the broad veranda on the side of the house least exposed to the breeze. The men had forsaken the fields to seek relief from the oppres sive atmosphere. Nellie, a sixteen-year-old city cousin, sat on the steps In cool array of dainty muslin and rib bons and lace. Ellsba, called Light, Blnce his ' baby lips first lisped the word in trying to pronounce his owa name, tall, stalwart, twenty-six years old, and head over heels In love with the bunch of femininity, on the steps, reposed la an arm chair, his throat swathed In a handkerchief, and his breathing heavy from a recent cold. Willie, seventeen, and incorrigible, swung in a hammock. Mrs. Langdon, their mother, knitted placidly, close, by. "Cousin Nellie," said Light, "I saw some elegant blackberries over on the crossroad yesterday." Nellie sprang up, clapping her hands Joyously. "I'm going to rick some for tea," she cried. Willie lazily turned in bis swinging nest and drawled: "Jim Butler said be saw bear tracks In the woods over tuere." "Hush!" said his mother, "you know there was no such thing there." "Jim salr so anyway," repeated Wil lie, with a roguish wink at his brother, "Is there any danger. Light?" ques tioned Nellie, somewhat startled. "Not a bit," enswereu Mrs. Langdon for him, "but you must not go black berrying In that dress. Put on stout shoes and a thick dress. Willie, you had better go with her." "Can't. Too hot. Besides I'm afraid of bears," drawled that enterprising youth. ' I don't want you," flashed Nellie. I'd much rather go alone." and with 4 look of disdain in the direction qf the hammock she walked indoors. Pinning up her skirts and donning a sunbonnet she took a bright new tin pail from the shlf In tho kitchen and walked briskly to the crossroad, where she was soon busily engaged in trans ferring the big black beauties from bush to pall unheeding of heat or scratches. Quickly raising her head she saw that the wood was in shadow rapidly deepening." Could It be night, she wondered, with a thrill of fear. Sud denly there fell upon her ear a distant roar, and, shortly after a crackling ;u the underbrush and a dark figure com ing toward her through the gloom. "Willie's bear!" Frantic with fear, she Cropped her pail and turned to Brain ai He City Hi 17 HELEN HUNT. flee, unheeding that the was going away from the bouse Instead o to ward5 ll- .v J,.!, Ani following after came the dark figure, now running In evident endeav or to overtake her. On she went, stumbling over stlcKS and stones, her heart pounding us If to set itself free, her breath coming shorter and shorter, her sight growing dim. Once she seemed to hear a voice In the distance calling to her. but she dared not stop nor look behind her. On, on, lest that terrible something ?lze her from be hind. At Inst she stepped into a hole left by an uprooted tree and fell for ward in a swoon. At the house, Nellie's excursion af ter berries w:s fot totten for an hour, then as dark thunder clouds began to roll up around the horizon. Light started tip. Did Nellie go?" he queried. "If she did she is sure to get wet. Give me her rubbers and a wrap and I will go and fetch her." His mother easily sought the arti cles requested, anu laden with these, Light started forth followed by Wil lie's jeers. "Au. come back. Light. Rain won't hurt her, the isn't sugar if you do think she's sweet. She won't melt." Licht made him no reply but went on his way; the only rcult of his brother's bantering being that his cheeks were very red. It had darkened perceptibly when he came in sight of the little figure he was In search of and the thunder rum bled menacingly. Suddenly a twig snapped beneath his feet and he saw Nellie turn a white face one moment toward him and then flee headlong in the opposite direction, stuniblir.g over sticks and stouts In frantic ter ror. Light endeavored to shout her name, but his hoarse voice only augmented her speed. In a fta.-h the truth burst upon him. and. breathing anathemas on his fun lo ir.g brother and his own obstructed vocal orcans, he started In pursuit. When Nellie opened her eyes It was to look up Imp the lace of her cousin. That face hau been very near her face within the last few moment?, nnd was as white and scared as her own. .As memory returned she clung to him In a panic, "'i lie bear, where Is it?" she questioned. ' There is no b?ar," Light answered. "It was I coming to help you home, and I, with Willie's help, have nearly killed you. Can you ever forgive me?" "Forgive me for being so silly, but Oh, Light, I'm frightened yet," cried : Nellie, nestling against the broad i thcalileis so near her. What more j was said you r.nd 1 will not stay to listen to, lor to other eats than those tu:ned to hear It the words might have but little sense; but when the I rain began to fall two apparently j perfectly happy human being walked together toward the farmhouse, obliv ious of rain or aught but each other. "There's nothing hair so sweet in Ufa as love's young dream." When they arrived home, Mrs. Lang don fell upon tnem in fear lest both bad taken a death cold, "and you so hoarse now that you can hardly tneak," she sala to Light. Willie surveyed the couple for a minute and then laugned long and loud at the success ot ais juke and the be drenched figures before him. "Don't worry about them a minute, mother. They won't take cold. They don't even know It's been raining. Sure case of mind cure of heart cure. Weil dance, at a wedding by New Year." And they did, but somewhere on the Journey of life there is a trap set for Willie, and Ltgm and Nellie ' will greatly rejoice when he puts his foot therein. American Cultivator.
