A Hard Proposition. A young man visited his doctor and described a common Illness that had befallen him. "The thing for you to do," the phy sician said, "Is to drink hot water an hour before breakfast every morning." "Well, how are you feeling?" the doctor asked a week later. "Did you follow my advice and drink hot water an hour before breakfast?" "I did my best, sir, but I couldn't keep it up more'n ten minutes at a stretch." Tit-Bits.

Thev hearrt tha tinkle of bells In the distance, and looKing in the direction of this unus ual sound, saw a team of snlendlrl onal. black horses dash round a corner and whirl a strange vehicle to the door of ino inn. There were two extraordinary fig ures on the front seat of the wagon. The driver was a sturdy, thick-set man whose enormous moustache aua-roatari a crow with outstretched wings. As if to emphasize the ferocious aspect lent him by this hairy canopy which com pletely concealed his mouth. Nature had duplicated It In miniature by brows meeting above his nose and spreading themselves, plume-like, over a pair or eyes which gleamed so brightly that they could be felt, al though they were so deep-set that they could scarcely be aean. This fierce and buccaneerlsh person summoned the dosing hostler in a coarse. Imperative voice, flung him the reins, sprang from his seat, and assist ed his companion to alight She gave him her hand with an air of utter In difference, bestowed unon him nnlthnr smile nor thanks, and dropped to the ground with a light flutter like a bird. Turning Instantly toward the tavern, she ascended the steps of the porch under a fusillade of glances of aston ishment and admiration. Young and beautiful, dressed In a Dlctureanue unit brilliant Spanish costume, she carried Herself with the ease and dignity of a princess, and looked strnle-ht nn.i the staring crowd. Her great, dreamy eyes aia not seem to note them. When she and her companion had entered the hall and closed the door behind them, every tilted chair came down to the floor with a bang, and many voices exclaimed In concert, "Who Is she?" Curiosity was satisfied at 8 o'clock In the evening, for at that hour Doctor Parnnal as he fantastically called himself, opened the doors of his traveling apothecary shop and exposed his "uni versal panecea- tor sale, while at the same time. "Paneeta. tha Otiann nf Fortune Tellers," entered her booth and spread out upon a table the parapher nalia by which she undertook to dis cover the secrets of the future. When the evenlnar'a -work was endari. Pepeeta at once retired; but the doctor entered the bar-room, followed by a curious and admiring crowd. He was In a hapry and expansive frame of mind, for he had dona a "land nfflra" business in this frontier village which ne was now for the first time visiting. He looked over the crowd with an inclusive superiority and waved his nana witn an inclusive gesture. The motley throng of loafers sidled up to the bar with a deDrecatorv and auto matic movement They took their glasses, clinked them, nodded to their entertainer, muttered Innnhamnt tnn.t. and drank his health. The delighted landlord, feeling It Incumbent upon him to break the silence, offerer thn friendly observation: "S-s-see you s-s-tutter. S-s-stutter a little m-m-my own self." 'Shake!" resDonded the dor-tor. who was In too complacent a mood to tako offense, and the worthies grasped nan as. "Don't know any w-w-way to s-s- stop it do you?" asked the landlord. "No, I d-d-don't; t-t-trled every thing. Even my "universal p-p-pana- cea' won't do It and what that can't do can't be d-d-done. Incurable d-d- dlsease. Get along all right when I go slow like this; but when I open the throttle, get all b-b-balled up.. Bad thing for my business. Give any rrtan a thousand d-d-dollars that'll cure me," the quack replied, slapping his trousers pocket as If there were mil lions in it "Co-co-couldn't go q-q-quite as high as that; but wouldn't mind a hu-hd-bundred," responded the landlord, cor dially. "Tell you what it Is, b-b-boys," said the quack, "if it wasn't for this im pediment in my s-s-speech, I wouldn't need to work more'n about another y-y-yearl" 'How's that?" asked someone in the crowd. "C-o-cause if I could talk as well as I o-o-can think, J could make a for tune 'side of which old John Jacob Astors would look like a p-p-penny savings D-b-DanKl , Tou could?" ' "If I can find a man that can do the t-talklng (I mean real talk, you know; talk a crowd blind as b-b-bats), I've got something better'n a California g-g-gold mine." "Better get Davo Corso.i," said the village . wag from the rear of the crowd, and up went a wild shout of laughter. "Who's D-D-Dave Corson?" asked the doctor. "Quaker preacher. Toung feller bout 10 years old." "Can he t-t-talk?" -Talk I He kla talk a mule Into a trottln' hoaa in leas'n three minutes." "He's my man!" exclaimed the doc tor, at which the crowd laughed again. "What are you laughing at?" he asked, turning upon them savagely, his loud voice and threatening manner frightening those who stood nearest so that they instinctively stepped back a pace or two. "No offense, Joe," said one' of thorn; "but yoa couldn't get him. He's pious." "Pious! What do I care?" "Well, these here pious Quakers are US in their notions. But you kin Jedge far yourself 'bout his talkln, for tharo's j goin ter be an applnted Quaker meet in' to-morrow night and he'll speak. You kin go an" listen, if you want to." "I'll be there, boys, and d-d-don't you forget it I'll hook him I Never saw anything I couldn't buy If I had a little of the p-p-proper stuff about me." "I say, Doo, that daughter of yours knows her biz when It comes to telling fortunes," ventured a young dandy, whose head had been turned by Pe peeta a beauty. "D-d-daughter!" snapped the quack, turning sharply upon him; "she's not my daughter, she's my wife!" In order to comprehend the relation ship of this strangely mated pair, we must go back five or six years to a certain day when this same Dootor Aesculapius rode slowly down the main street of a small city in Western Pennsylvania, and then out along a rugged country highway. A couple of miles brounght him to the camp of a band of gypsies. Around a campflre was a picturesque group of persons, all of whom, with i single exception, vanished at the ap proach of the stranger. The man who stood his ground was a truly sinister being. He was tall, thin and angular; his clothing was scant and ragged, his face bronzed with exposure to the sun. "Good morning, Baltasar," said the visitor. The gypsy acknowledged his saluta tion with a frown. "I wish to sell this horse," the trav eler added, without appearing to notice his cold reception. The gypsy swept his eye over the animal and shook his head. "If you will not buy, perhaps you will trade," the traveler said. "Come," was the laconlo response, and so saying the gypsy turned to wards the forest which lay Just beyond the camp. The "dootor" obeyed. A moment later he found himself in a se questered spot where there was an improvised stable; and a dozen or more horses glancing up from their feed whinnied a welcome. A little rivulet lay across their path, and up from the margin of it where she had been gathering water cresses there sprang a young girl, who cast a startled glance at him, then bounded swiftly toward a tent and vanished through the opening. This keen ad mirer of horses was equally suscepti ble to the charms of female beauty. So swift an apparition would have be wildered rather than illumined the mind of an ordinary man. But the quack was not an ordinary man. ' He was endowed with a certain rude pow er of divination which enabled htm to see in a single instant by swift intui tion, more than the average man dis covers by an hour of reasoning. By this natural clairvoyance he saw at a glance that this face of exquisite deli cacy could no more have been coined In a svpsy camp than a fine cameo could be cut In an Indian wigwam. Ho knew that all gypsies were thieves, and that these were Spanish gypsies. What was more natural than that he should conclude with inevitable loglo that this child had been stolen from people of good if not of noble blood! "Baltasarl" .he said. The gypsy turned. "You are a girl-thief as well as a horse-thief. You stole this girl from the family of a Spanish nobleman. I am the representative of this family and have followed your trail for years. You thought I had come to get the horse. You were mistaken; it was the girl!" "Perdltal" exclaimed the gypsy, taken completely off his guard. "Lost indeed," responded the quack, scarcely able to conceal his pride In his own astuteness. And thn he added slowly: "She must be a burden to you, Baltasar. You evidently never have been able or never have dared to take her back and claim the ransom which you expected. I will pay you for her and take her from your hands. It Is the child I want and not vengeance. What will you take for her?" The doctor drew a leather wallet from his pocket and held it up tantal lzlngly. Its Influence was decisive. "Pepeeta! Pepeeta!" called the gyp sy. Out of the door of the tent she came, her eyes fixed upon the ground, and her fingers picking nervously at the tinsel strings which fastened her bod ice. "Gif me ze money and take her." The doctor counted out the gold, and then approached the child. For the first time in his life he experienced an emotion of reverence. There was some thing about her beauty, her helpless ness and his responsibility that made a new appeal to his heart Yielding to the gentle pressure of his hand, she permitted herself to be lad away. Not a good-bye was said. The doctor lifted the child upon the :.orse's back and climbed Into the saddle. The beautiful child trembled; she also wept She was parting from those whose lives were base and cruel: but they were the only human beings that she knew. She was leaving a wagon and a tent but It was the only home that sne could remember. To have a fellow-being completely in our power makes us either utterly cruel or utterly kind, and all that was gentle in that great rough nature went out in a rush of tenderness toward the little creature who thus suddenly be came absolutely dependent upon ' his compassion. After they had ridden a little way, he began in his rough fash Ion to try to comfort her. "Don't cry, Pepeeta! You ought to be thankful that you have tot out of the elutchea of those villains. You could not have been worse off, and yu may Do a great deal better! Tfcor were not always kind to you, were ineyr I shouldn't wonder if they beat you sometimes! But you will never be Deaten any more. You ahall 1 ava nice little pony, and a cart, and flow- em, ana pretty clothes, and everything that little Klrls like. I (Inn I knnw what they are, but whatever they are you snail have them. So dont rrv nnv more! What a Drettv name Penenta. is! It sounds like music when I say it l have got the toughest name In the world myself, it's a regular Jaw breaker Doctor Paracel ana AeafMiln plus! What do you think of that Pe peeta! But then you reed not call me by the whole of 1:! You can Just call me Doctor, for short Now, look at me Just once, and give me a pretty smile. Let me see those big black eyes! No? iou aon t want, to? Well, thafs all right I won't bother you. But I want you to Know that I love you, and that you are never going to have any more trouble as long as you live." These were the kindest words the child had ever had spoken to her. or at least the kindeBt She could remamhnr. They fell on her ears like music and awakened gratitude and love in her heart She ceased to sigh, and before the ride to town was endM had be gun to feel a vague sense of happi ness. The next few years went full nf strange adventures for these singular companions. The quack had discov ered certain clues to the past history "of the child whom he had thus adopt ed, and was firmly persuaded that shl belonged to a noble family. He had made all his plans to take her to Snaln and establish her Identity in the hope oi securing a great rewart. But Just as he was about to exeouta thi. scheme, he was seized by a disease wnicn prostrated him for many months, and threw him Into a nervous condition In which he contracted the habit of stammering. On his recovery from his long sickness he found him self stripped of everything he. had ac cumulated; but his shrewdness and In domitable will remained, and he soon began to rebuild his shattered fortune. During all these ups and d wns, Pe peeta was his Inseparable and devoted companion. The admiration which her childish beauty excited in his heart had deepened Into affection and finally into love. When she reached the age of 18 or 17 years, he proposed to her the Idea of marriage. She knew noth ing of her own heart, and little about life, but had been accustomed to yield Implicit obedience to h:i will. She con sented and the ceremony was perform ed by a Justice of the Peace in the city of Cincinnati, a year or so before their appearance in t'..e Quaker village. An experience bo abnormal would have perverted, If not destroyed her nature, had It not contained thj germs of beauty and virtue Implanted at her birth. They were still dormant but not dead; they only awaited the sun and rain of love to quicken them into Ufa The quack had coarsened with the passing years, but Pepeeta, withdraw ing Into the sanctuary of her soul, liv ing a life of vagnue dreams and half conscious aspirations after something, she know not what, had Brrnwn nvan more gentle and submissive. As she did not yet comprehend life, she did not protest against its lnluatice or It. incongruity. The vulgar people among wnom sne lived, the vulgar scenes she saw, passed across the mirror of her soul without leaving permanent im pression. She performed the coarse duties of her life In a perfrnctory manner. It was her body and not her soul, her will and not her heart which were concerned with them. What that soul and that heart really were, re malned to be seen. (To be continued.) A Moral Lesson. Mike Powers, the Athletics' catcher, said at a recent baseball banquet In Philadelphia: "All the talk there has been In New York about crooked foot races and crooked umpires and crooked fights all this vague, formless talk about crookedness makes me think of a South Carolina meeting I once attend ed. At tbe end of this meeting It was decided to take up a' collection for charity. The chairman passed the hat himself. He dropped a dime in it for a nest egg. Well, gentlemen, every right hand there entered that hat every right hand and yet, at the end when the chairman turned the hal over and shook it, not so much as hit own contribution dropped out. " 'Fo' de lan's sake!' he cried. 'Ah's eben log' de dime Ah stahted wlv!' "AH the rows of faces looked puz zled. Who was the lucky man? That was the question which tormented all. Finally the venerable Calhoun White summed up the situation. " 'Breddern,' he said, solemnly, ris ing from his seat, 'dar 'pears ter be a great moral lesson roun' heah some, whar.'" A Case for Sympathy. Two matrons of a certain western city whose respective matrimonial ventures did not In the first Instance prove altogether satisfactory, met at a woman's club one day, when the first matron remarked: "Hattle, I met your 'ex,' dear old Tom, tho day before yesterday. We talked much of you." "Is that so?" asked the other ma tron. "Did he seem sorry when you told him of my second marriage?" "Indeed, ho did; and said so most frankly!" . ' ' "Honest?" "Honest! He said be was extremely sorry, though, he said, he didn't know the man personally." Llpplncott'a. Proof Ho Waa "Daaed."

The vender of Images, who had Just been thrown out of a large office build ing, wept bitterly as he looked at his torn clothes and broken wares. "Who did this?" inquired the friend ly cop. "I'll pinch 'em if you say the word." "No; It was my fault," said the vic tim, gathering up the remains of a plaster image.
