Paul C. Smith have been urging his
name. But Mr. .smith also says he
doesn't want it, and will not be a
undulate. O. for a Gutteridtre to

Contractor John Rafferty is busy
this week laying the new storm sew
ers along Central avenue. The work
is being done on plans laid down by
Civil Engineer Stallings of Palatka
who gives assurance that the sewers
will put an end to the constant wear
ing away of the street level by the
heavy rains. Some comment ad
verse to the sewer pipe provided for
the work has been made. In a talk
with Mr. Stallings, who was here last
Friday giving the levels, he stated
that the contract called for "seconds,"
but that many had been injured in
transit, and he had designated those
in the supply which could be used.
And that there were a plenty to give
the town a lasting sewer and one that
would work. - The contract has been
let to Mr. Rafferty and the contrac
tor is to give the town just such a
sewer as was arranged for in the
contract Mr. Stallings also said
that all the pipe was cemented to
gether where joined and that the ce
ment would be really stronger than

Southfield Bible Conference.

largely attended than in any previ

study will be offered which should
attract many christian workers- from
the north and south.
To Keep Stopper From Sticking.
A very little glycerin smeared
around the 'glass stoppers ot bottles
will keep them from sticking for a

As I entered the station I ran up
against a beautiful display of flowers
In a shop wludow. I have always been
fond of flowers, and, entering the shop,
I bought a rose, an American Beauty,
und put It In a buttonhole of my
coat On reaching my destination,
stepping from the train, I ran Into
something more beautiful than the
rose. At least it was more engaging.
A young girl who seemed to be taking
In with rapid glances those who were
alighting fixed her eyes upon me, gave
a sign of recognition, started forward.
halted, then as I was passing her
caught my baud and said:
1 am free to admit that had the
young lady been an old lady or even a
homely young lady I should have at
once informed her that she was mis
taken In the person, and' 1 am free to
admit that this is what I was In honor
bound to do. But I didn't. I looked
at her and said:
"Are you''
"Yes, I'm Lillian. If you hadn't worn
the rose I don't believe I should have
recognized you."
"That is not surprising consider
ing" I gave her time to finish what 1
dared not risk finishing myself.
"We'll talk later. Just now we must
be going. You must have your trunk
sent to the house."
1 demurred, on the ground that 1
would incommode the family, where
upon she said that there was no one
in the house but her mother and her
self, and her mother, being an Invalid,
was for the present keeping her room.
This was, to say the least unfortunate
for my self respect, for tt threw In my
way au added temptation. I suffered
myself to be guided to a cab and, tell
ing the young lady that I had no trunk
with me, was driven to her home, an
eminently respectable residence, and
was at once sent up to my room.
On the bureau stood a photograph of
a youth probably five or six years
younger than myself. It arrested my
attention because it resembled me. A
maid brought me some towels, and 1
hazarded asking her a few questions,
"Who is that?" pointing to the pic
"I thiuk that it's Miss Lillian's
Before the maid left the room 1 had
enough information to last me till I
could get more. I learned that Walter
was an objectionable person to Miss
Lillian's mother because he was con
sldered wild and could, not support a
wife. He was expected any day to
arrive in order to arrange for the wed
ding. He and Lillian had been be
trothed when they were very young
and had not met since.
I went downstairs. Dinner was on
the table, and Lillian and I dined alone
together. The first thing I said to her
after being seated was:
"Has your mother withdrawn her ob
jections to me?"
"I can't say that she has. You must
try to break down her prejudice by
being nice to her."
now I fenced to prevent Lillian
from learning that I was an impostor
would take too long to tell. Nearly
everything I said was intended to
draw forth information to help me In
my deception. I was In constant ter
ror for fear Walter would appear and
expose me. Had I known what he
was doing at that moment I should
have felt easier.
After dinner I proposed that I should
visit mamma and try to placate her.
1 found the old lady very much preju
diced against me. I asked her what
was the basis of her opposition to me
and learned that it was general worth-
lessnoss and especially that I had con
tracted the liquor habit Notwith
standing this lamentable condition I
felt comforted. I could cure myself,
and t lie other follow could not At
least I believed that if I chose I could
cut hi ui out before he could reform.
In oi'der to gain time and not ex
pose my deception I, made a plea of
being tired with traveling, though I
hud come but twenty miles, and went
to bed early. What bothered me was
tbiu it was naturally expected that I
would curess my fiancee. And under
the circumstances I was not quite so
base as to do so. Ouce in my room I
was free from that temptation.
I dared not attempt to go through the
next day without giving myself away
and resolved on a confession. And
this part of the episode I flatter myself
1 handled very well. I confessed to
Ky prospective mother-in-law. At the
same time I proposed, with her con
currence, to find out what was keeping
my double and if he was really worthy
of her daughter. A desire to avail her
self of my services saved me from
what I deserved, and having been
fully posted by her I disappeared from
the bouse without Lillian's knowledge,
took a train for the place where Wal
ter lived and found that he was recov
ering from a debauch and getting
ready to visit his fiancee. I sent him
a telegram In his mother-in-law's
name to await a letter, returned to her
and Lillian and before seeing the latter
had an Interview with the former.
When I saw Lillian again she knew
alL She declined to meet me till her
feelings and her mind were somewhat
composed and she had become sensi
ble of the fact that I bad really done
her a faTor.
There Is nothing more of this story
to tell except that I married the girl I
had so dishonorably saved from a
worse fat. I

A Cynical View of Past Methods and
Those of tho Present.
Law. more especially criminal law,
has usually been an occult science. It
is still the practice in Burma, we be
lieve, to give two disputants candles of
the same size, to be lighted at the
same time. The one whose candle
burns longest gets judgment against
the other.
Less than 100 years ago a defendant
in an English criminal trial appealed
to the ordeal of battle, and the court
was more or less surprised to find that
the ancient law on which he relied had
never been repealed.
Determining a man's guilt or Inno
cence by bis ability to walk on hot
plowshares or carry a hot Iron or
drink a poisonous decoction or by
thro win hint bound Into va.,er has
been practiced lor ages among niaay
peoples. The medieval method of let
ting accused and accuser Jight it out
with weapons was comnlHi over Ear
rope. Our modest ancestors confessed their
Inability to find the merits of tae
cause and so relegated the whole af
fair to the Intervention of supernatural
agencies. The main difference Is that
we are less modest Instead of the
ordeal of battle or the old key and Bi
ble test or the "sieve witch," we hane '
the defendant play a game of trip the i
