NOTICE. “SIO.OO a day easily made by hust ling local agent. Write for full in formation at once.” ARIZONA SALES AGENCY, Phoenix, Arizona. AN AUTHOR IN A GARRET Wearing Old Clothes and Eating Cheap Meals Was No Hardship to Moore. In Paris I had lived very much as I lived in Victoria street, but it had never occurred to me that I showed any merit by accepting, without mur muring, the laborious life in the Tem ple that a sudden reverse of fortune had forced upon me; it was no suffer ing for ml to live in a garret, wearing old clothes, and spending from two shillings to half a crown on my dinner, because I felt, and instinctively, that that is the natural life of a man of letters; and I can remember my sur prise when my brother told me one day that my special agent had said he never knew anybody so economical as George. Some time after Tom Ruttledge him self came panting up my stairs, and during the course of conversation re garding certain large sums of money which I heard of for the first time, he said: “Well, you have spent very little money during the last few years.” And when I spoke of the folly of other landlords, he added: “There are very few who would be content to live in a cockloft like this.” And looking round my room I real ized that what he said was true; I was living in a cockloft, bitterly cold in winter and stifling in summer; the sun beating fiercely on the windows in the afternoon, obliging me to write in my shirt sleeves.—George Moore in “Ave.” Patriotism. The priest of the Servian Orthodox church at Wilmerding, Pa., made a Memorial day address in the town cemetery last spring. At the close of his speech in Servian he said in Eng lish: “I deem it my holiest duty to kiss this consecrated ground upon which your heroic ancestors shed their blood, and in which their bones are laid to rest. I deem it my Christian duty to offer God a prayer for the repose of their souls, just as if they were my own blood.” Then he kneeled, kissed the ground and offered a prayer for the repose of those who died for their father land. When he arose he said: “Glory to the dead soldiers, and prosperity to the American people.” The incident was related by Peter Roberts, director of the immigration work for the Y. M. C. A., to a group of Kansas City men at the association rooms yesterday. It emphasizes once more the fact that Americanism is a matter of the spirit, not of the blood. —Kansas City Times. Good Advice. Former Mayor Dunne of Chicago in a recent address to young men, preached the doctrine of sturdy democ racy. “People bother too much,” he said, ‘about their ancestors. If you be lieved all you heard you’d think that every other man was descended from William the Conqueror or Charle magne. My advice to a young man would be this; Don’t bother about your descent, unless you are an aviator.’ ” Most Furs Wear Lony With Care. Most furs are durable, experts say, and will last for a long time if guard ed from moths, high temperatures and spring sunshine. A less durable fur is broadtail, as it is taken trom young animals. Chinchilla and ermine are also delicate, both in color and tex ture, and should be carefully treated. Places that make a specialty of stor ing furs keep them at a uniform win* :er temperature.

SPANIARDS DO CUBA’S WORK Natives Are All Right in Some Lines of Employment, but Not as Laborers. “Ninety per cent of the laborers on the plantations and in the mines of Cuba are Spaniards,” said Burton Vandyke, superintendent of one of the largest iron works in Santiago, at the New Ebbitt. ‘They make good work men, far better than the natives ol Cuba. In fact, the Cubans will not work as laborers. They are all right in other lines of employment, but not as workingmen. The Spaniards have almost entirely taken the place of la borers of other nationalities. The wages paid are based on an average oi a dollar a day, but many make as high as two dollars doing ‘task’ work. “Cuba is rich in minerals, but the development of the islands is retard ed by the continued unrest, due to the fear that at any time, as in any Latin country, there may be a revolution I don’t mean to say that there is any reason to think a revolution is immi nent in Cuba. That would not be cor rect, but there is always the appre hension that some time there may be an uprising. “I have given no attention to politics n Cuba. That is a question that doesn’t appear to concern many Americans. There is no doubt, I think, that if it were not for the unsettled political conditions of Cuba, American capital would feel safer in investing there, and there would be many more Amer icans there. At this time I do not believe there are any more Americans in Cuba than there were a few years ago, although the opportunities for making money in sugar plantations and in other lines are many.” SHE WENT HOME TO MOTHER Habit of Talking in Sleep Causes Se rious Break in the Brown Family. “And pray, who is Doris?” was the question that startled Mr. Brown (who is addicted to that ill-conceived habit of talking in his sleep), as he woke the other morning and found his better half sitting up in bed with an interro gation point in her eyes. "Doris, Doris, Doris who?” “That’s just what 1 want to know; you’ve been repeating that name over and over again.” “Oh —ah—yes, yes, of course. It’s Charlie Jones’ new collie dog. She’s a perfect beauty.” “Indeed!” “Rather; she’s just the sort of dog—” “You ought to own? Certainly—you appear very fond of her. You asked, you will be pleased to hear, this ‘collie dog’ to put her arms around your neck and kiss you; then you told Mr. Jones' dog that you ’Loved her with all your heart,’ and that ’when you came to die If you could only lay your head on Jones’ dog’s bosom, you could breathe your life out sweetly there.’ Tken you asked Jones’ dog to ‘have another ice,’ and if the watch you had given her kept good time. Under these circum stances, James Brown, I think, per haps, you had better go to Jones’ col lie dog. lam going home.” Generous Harpies. “On the return of the army from the Philippine islands most of the troops were mustered out in San Francisco. In advance of their ar rival at that point, the pension attor neys of Washington hurried to the Bpot to open offices or have their agents ready to meet the returning soldiers. According to the language of the soldiers themselves, the rival agents beset them at once, importun ing them to file their claims for pen sions without delay. To the bewilder ed youths, eager only to reach their homes, 75 attorneys seemed to he pur suing each victim, assuring him that it was his duty to file his application, whether an invalid or not. The hos pitals had to be guarded against these tormentors masquerading as friends of the invalids.” In the case of a sin gle regiment composed of officers and men of exceptional physical excel lence, 477 applications for pensions were filed within four months, for over 20 different diseases. —Charles Francis Adams in the World’s Work. When Lehar “Couldn’t Play.” When Lehar, the composer of “The Merry Widow,” and recently ol “Eva,” which will soon have its first performance in Berlin, was the lead er of a military band in Vienna, he was an applicant for the place of di rector of a musical association in that city. One of the requirements was “familiarity with and ability to direct waltz music.” Lehar appeared with the other applicants tor exami nation, and was promptly rejected, "symphonic music seemed to he more his sphere than dance music.” it he had believed that the judges had formed a true opinion of the trend of his talent, he would probably still be as unknown to the world as he was when he marched at the head of a Vienna brass band. Giving It Away. Being called to his feet unexpected ly at the gathering and asked to re spond informally to the toast “The Ladies,” Mr. Gilfers hemmed and hawed and began: “My friends, all that I am, all that I have in the world, I owe to a wom an —my wife.” Here he was interrupted by that lady herself, who arose and said: “I told you, when you put the prop erty In my name, you’d give it away first time you opened your mouth.” LION ATTACKS A MAN AND HORSE Desperate For Blood, Leaps From a Tree as They Pass By —Yavapai Stockman Succeeds in Killing the Beast With a Rifle. George Ainsworth of Walnut Creek is well qualified to claim the belt as the champion lion fighter of the state from a conflict that occurred last week in the Juniper range of moun tains, in a hand to hand conflict i that was attended with danger to the the man, and which resulted in the wounding of his horse and the kill ing of his trained dog. Accounts of this episode were received Tuesday from arrivals from Walnut Creek, to gether with the receipt of tJie hide by Joe Drew, says a Prescott exchange. At the time Mr. Ainsworth was attacked he was riding along in the snow about twelve inches deep, and in passing under a tree the lion jumped from a limb onto his horse, alighting just behind the saddle. In its plunge the lion threw its claws into the flesh of the horse making several wounds. Realizing his perilous position, Mr. Ainsworth jumped from the saddle with his Winchester in hand, and commenced firing. At this time the dog attacked the lion, and it was an extremely difficult matter for him to continue shooting under these circumstances, fearing that a bullet would reach the dog that he valued highly. In about fifteen minutes af terward, however, a bullet found a vital spot and the lion fell dead. The dog was found to be badly wounded and died later. Mr. Ainsworth is an experienced lion hunter, and attributes the at tack made on him to the fact that the lion was hungry, and had been un able for tiie past ten day® to get any thing to eat from the deep snows that had been falling. He also states that this is the first time ho had ever known a lion to adopt, the methods it did by attacking a horse and rider from a tree. The pelt received Tuesday was pro nounced by Mr. Drew as of the blue type, and the age was over ten years, j This breed of the cougar is said to be the heaviest and most dangerous Parker Commercial Co.
