Copyright, 1909, by American Press Asso ciation. J A man calling himself Giovanni walked into an Italiuu restaurant in New York and, addressing the proprie tor, Antonio Munciui, asked for em ployment as a waiter. Being told that the force of waiters was complete, he said that be would work for nothing until a vacancy occurred. Soon after Giovanni's employment the custom of the establishment drop ped off, and the proprietor. Instead of filling waiters' vacancies, began to dis cbarge those be bad. He told Gio vanni that there was no hope for him to secure pay and be was welcome to leave as soon as he liked. To this I Giovanni replied that be was making a living from the tips he received and this was far better than nothing. But the attendance at the restaurant continued to decrease." Mancini, who wns an excellent cook, went himself into the kitchen and even invented new dishes with the most delectable flavorings, hoping to regain the cli entele he had lost, nut It was of no avail. Ills old customers did not come back to him. nud new ones were not to be attracted. He was paying a high rental, and his expenses in other re spects were enormous. One day he called his few remaining employees to his office and said to them: "I am expecting the sheriff to levy on what remains here. Until recently I was making money. Indeed, 1 pos sessed $20,000. I wns about to sell out my business and return to our beloved Italy to spend a comfortable old age. Instead of that I am a beggar In a foreign land. Go and secure new places. As for me, I know not what to do." All expressed sorrow for their em ployer and went away, except Gio vanni. He stood alone with Mancini after the others had departed. "Why do you remain?" asked the restaurateur. "To tell you the cause of your mis fortune." There was something in the man's eye and the tone in which the words were spoken that arrested bis employ er's earnest attention. He looked at Giovanni for an explanation. "You wouder, signor," said the hit ter, "why I. to whom you hove never paid a cent, have stood by you to the Inst." "I do." "I am not only a countryman of yours, but I came from the same dis trict as you, the lake region of Italy." "Ob!" "I was a smuggler engaged In run ning dutiable goods across Lake Como to a region where It was eutsy to dispose of them. You know that the lake is patrolled by the customs offi cers and there is great risk in car rying goods across. Indeed. It Is prac tically impossible to do so without de tection. Well. I divided my profits with them, and they took care not to see me. In this way I gained enough to pay for a farm and was about to purchase oue, marry the girl 1 loved OPd turn farmer when a misfortune occurred to me. A customs officer 1 bad been bribing made t his business to see mo while smuggling, 1 -was ar rested and Imprisoned." Mancini sot (spellbound by the story, every moment growing paler. Gio vanni kept his eye fixed on hin In tently. "While iu Jail," he resumed, "I was put into a cell with an old smuggler. He was ill, nnd I nursed him. Dyiug. he made me his belr. Where do you suppose his fortune was deposited?" ''Go po." "You remember the point formed by the Junction of Lakes Comb sud Lec co?" "I was born on it." ''There, across the lake, one can see Moute Crociope and on a crag near by the little church of San Martluo." . "I wns married there," groaned Mancini. ''And uot far from San Martino is a bole u the rock. From across the lake it jooks oqly forge enough to con tain a big bowlder, It would hold a church." "I have bee in it." "The fortune 1 inherited was there. The smuggler hud turned all his prof its into diamonds and hidden them in the rave, f brought tbem to America in the shape of bills of exchange." "And have lost your Inheritance"' "No; I have every cent of It. Aod why hare J. a rich mnn. been working here without pay? To ruin the cus toms officer who betrayed uie and who married my betrothed. I have caused the falling off of four bualiiess by cir culating false stories of what food you have served to your guests." "You you have done this?" "I have." "lou baye taken a terrible revenge. But you are rich, aud j will have dam ages under the law." "Ou what evidence?" Mapclal was slleut. "Besbies, where is my fortune? No' one knows. We Italiiius, especially we. who hove beeu smugglers and rev. pnue officers, know how to cover our tracks." A graau wns the pnly response. "But it la uot iiecensary (bat you should prosecute uie.

We are never satisfied to have our happiness on the installment plan. W -want It all at once. When ttW blacksmith.' starts to doc tor up a broken down wagon be doesn't say, "Stick out your tongue."

"There Is Jones who 'la regarded as the wisest man in the township, and yet he never expresses an op inion on any subject. How do you account for t?'r ?'Thit is easy. By keeping his mouth Bhut people are unable to find o.it how little he knows." A Delicate Question (From Life. Sept. 24. 1908.) Is a man's first duty to his own family er o his client? Take, for Instance, a patient call him William who U being treated for a disease considered Incurable. His doctor, of the old school, tell him frankly and kindly that the tost they ran do Is to hold the disease In BARGAIN check, prolong William's life por haps, and make hU remaining days comfortable. While this treatment '.s going on William begins to hear tales of what the osteopaths are do ing. His friends tell him of sudden 2ure3 of case3 resembling his own. William hates quackery, but as he cannot Ignore this testimony, he fin illy mentions the subject to his loctor. His doctor, a liberal mlnd 3d man, te'.ls Wll.iara regretfully, that while osteopaths, like other quacks, produce temporaty results that amaze he" Ignorant, they work far more larm than good; that osteopathy is .nerely a form of massage at best, and that William's disease Is a deep 3r matter. Besides, the osteopathic reatment is rough, and often danger ous. William Is secretly relieved by this Information, for he hates changing' about and he has no use for all the new "pathles," But the surprising tales persist Jit eachlng him. Even members of his, wn family relate extraordinary Jures of seemingly hopeless cases, without drugs or surgery. Finally, o make a long story short, William, fho does want to live, visits an oste ipath. He is ashamed, but he does t. The theory and treatment, as ex plained to him pertanly se,em ration? il. Moreover, he finds these osteo paths are curing cases much worse Jian hU own. And when William Ham himself is cured he blames the d school doctor for not sending him it once to the qsteqpath. But Is William Just? Is It ever expected that a lawyer, doctor, an architect or any man of landing, shall say to his client, "Clo '.o my rival. He Is wiser tliait a.mr 31ve your money to him Instead of to me?" In accusing the old school doctqp of fraud William is doubly unfair, is that doctor .despises the, osteo path and honestly believes him auack. And we all know how easy it Is to believe what Is most desir able. William argues, however, the suc cess of osteopathy now being com mon knowledge, that when he nave, J doctor for advice the doctor shoul give whatever advice is most like ly to lead to a cure.
