7 r THE" MOTHER OF A SOLDlElT. Its mother of a soldier hats oil tt hF, I say! Tit mother of a soldier who has goc to face the fray; Eh gave 'him to her country with a blessing on his head Che found hlfi name this moralng in the long list of the dead; "Killed Sergeant Thomas Watklnsv while leading on the rest, A Bible in his pocket and a portrait on hs breast!" , The mother of a soldier she gave hit. to her land; She eaw him on the transport as he waved hie sufl-browned hand; She kissed him through the tear dropa and told him to be brave; Her prayers went night and morning with her boy upon the wave. The mother of a soldier her comfort and her Joy, She gave her dearest treasure when she gave her only boy; She saw the banners waving, she heard the people cheer; She clasped her hande and bravely looked away to hide a tear. The mother of a soldier Ah, cheer the. hero deed. And cheeTr the brave who battle 'neath the banner of their creed; Cut don't forget the mothers, through all the lonely years, That fight the bravest battles on the sunless field of tears. Nay, don't forget the mothers the mothers of our men, Who eee them go and never know that they'll come back again, That give them to their country, to bat tle and to die. Because the bugles call them and the stafry banners fly. T The mother of a soldier hats off td her, I say! Whose head is bowed in sorrow with .Its tender locks of gray. She gave without regretting, though her old heart eorely bled When she found his name this morning In the long list of dead: "Killed Sergeant Thomas Watkins, while leading on the rest, His dear old mother's portrait clasped upon his hefo breast!" (Baltimore News. $ 0t A t3 A O ? Q . 9 TOOTSEY. r -' j Tootsey is only a ragged little news toy. But Tootsey, small thougn he is. is a hero, and his nature is undoubted, ly of the kind of which great men ara made. Tooteey, in his juvenile innocence, believes, as Topsy did, that he never had any parents, but "jest growed.' If his papers "go" well and business id otherwiee good he the happiest and most contented youngster in the New? boys' home. In fact, he has quite a eum on deposit with that Institution to tide him over a possible rainy day. If he is anything, however, Tooteey is original, and the luxury of a good bed often palls on his eccentric taste, and then the home will miss Ulm for eeveral days at a time. On these oc casions he will betake himself to some lumber yard and sleep out the night on a pile of the softest pine boards ha can find, or if the weather is chilly ha will creep into a box or an overturn ed barrel, and there, like some youth ful Diogenes, he will ruminate. 14.1a last adventure of this eort was produc. tlve of rather startling results. II seems that Tootsey, in his aimless wandering about town, chancel upon an ideal retreat beside vhich boxes, barrels and lumber piles paled in com-"' parlson. The site of this retreat wai an obscure alley, the retreat itself con. clsting of a deserted pit which oncq contained the mechanism of a Howe ecale, whereon were weighed wagona loaded with coal, hay, and otner things, The scale had been taken away, but the platform was left. This covered the pit and was so strewn with afihea end earth as not to be distinguished by a chance passer by Tootsey probably would not have discovered the old ex cavation had he not been walking coei to the stone wall at the side of the alley and fallen through almost to tin hips. Although the pit wis less tnan three feet in depth and perhaps a doz, en feet long by six in width, Tootsey was delighted, and concluded to occupy the place forthwith. The night follow, lng the discovery was the first and the last he spent in the pit. He had smuggled a quantity of old eacking into his underground aboU to use as a bed, r.nd was sleeping in supreme content when he was startle dnto wakefulness by a sound of foot eteps on the platform above his head, A moment later voices came to hia ears, and this was what he heard: "He'll pass the end of tho alley in about two minutes, Casey." "Are you sure he's got the etuif ?" 'Tostlve. If we sllr up the coppers you know where to come to rcost, Hurry!" The conversation was in a low tone but Tootsey heard it all. Ho started up to a sitting posture ju?t as the foot. Bteps above hurried rapidly away into silence. Tootsey had not lived In the city nil the years of his short life for nothing. The hoarse voices and the siang terma proved to tho boy that they helonged to worthless men, ready at all times to commit crime. While Tootsey s. there, thinking the matter over, he heard a number ol boaree shouts far down the alley, then a sound of rapidly exploding -evolvera. lAfter that came a brief Inteml of sil ence, and Tootsey was crawling to wards the exit from his underground iretreat when he heard a sound as of some one running, and almost before he had time to realize what was taking place a dark form blocked up vhe pas. ageway, and a man panting heavily, dropped into the pit. At first Tootsey was so frightened he could hardly move; and then, as si lently as he could he crawled to the further side of the excavation. It flashed through his mind that he was in that narrow place with one of tho robters, a man who would probably not hesitate to commit murder If bis own safety required it Scarcely daring to breathe, the boy lay, without moving a muscle, lietenlng and waiting, every second seemed an age. The robber also was quiet, smothering his breath ing as well as he could. In a few mo ments there came once more n eound of heavy footfalls on the plank plat form. They ceased suddenly as the men above came to a sharp halt. "He's gone, sure," said a voice, "Might ae well hunt for a needle in a haystack as to look for Red Mike In this part of the town. He has been chased down this alley half a dozen times, to my own knowledge, and be always disappears as if by magic" "That's so," replied another voice. "We've got his pal, Casey, however, and the proper thing for us to do 13 to try and get some Information out of him." "He'll not cay a word, see If he does. Come on; We're only losing time here." They started away. Quick as a flash Tootsey canvassed the entire situa tion and decided to risk h's life in helping the officers capture Red Mike. "He's here!" he shouted, at the tcp of his voice. "Under the old ecaia platform! Red Mike is " The officere probably were no more startled at the sound of Tootsey's voice than was Red Mike; but the robber was schooled in surprises, recovered hia wits instantly, and threw himself upon the boy. After that all was a blank to Tootsey until he came to him, self and found that he was lying in the bottom of a patrol wagon with hia head on a policeman's knee. "Feel better, my lad?" asked the po liceman.kindly. "I'm all right," answered Tootsey, despite the numb, aching sensation in his temples. "You're a sure enough hero, that's what you are. We got Red Mike out of that hole before he had a chance to injure you very badly. Still, it's a wonder he didn't kill you." "That's right. Did you get him?" asked Tootsey. "Of course we did. He's in the wa gon, behind us." "I'm glad1 of that. If you ever catch me bunking under that old scale platform again you'll be a pretty sharp copper. Say, IT1 get out here ar:d trot over to the Newsboy's home. That's good enough for me." And before the officer could restrain him Tootsey had dropped off the step of the wagon and scurried away into the darkness. Next day he was at his old stand selling papers which gave an account of his exploit, publisned his picture and set forth a biography which was, to say the least, somewhat idealized. But if the biography was a surprise to Tootsey, how must 'he have felt when he read that he had earned a re ward of $50 which the chief of roiice nad offered for the apprehension of Red Mike? He lost no time in collect ing this amount and placing It to hi? credit in the home W. W. Cook. money Found In the Mail Hag. "It seems almost Incredible that 1 the neighborhood of $40,000 in actual cash should have been confided to let ters during the last year, and harder still to credit that the most exhaustive efforts failed to find the owners of one fourth of that amount. The envelopes which are addressed are kept on tile for four years, blank ones not so long, but in cither case a liberal margin of time is allowed for claimants to appear before the money is finally turned In to the Treasury to the credit of the Post-Office Department. In addition, to the money conu-lned In letters dur ing the same period, something like $10,000 was found loose in the mall3 It is officially Btyled 'loose money.'

"Few trades are so overcrowded as that cf stenography, because twenty girl3 can be found for each position of fered. A new branch of regular sten ography Is that of the typewriter-stenographer who works by the piece. She visits her customers each morning, takes notes, and docs her work upon her own typewriter, returning the let ters promptly for signature. She also does copying. To business men who have not sufficient work, nor office room sufficient to share with a type-, writer, she Is Invaluable. She is also a valued assistant to women who are busy with club work, answering their letters, copying rules and regulations, and filing away their business papers." r-Franccs E.

A syndicate is being formed in Cork to ensure quick and cheap transport of Irish dairy produce to the English, markets. The Editor' Cap of Bliu win Full. Some editors have very intfnse im flKinationn, n witness this from the Findlay (Ohio) Courier: " An editor was being escorted into heaven by an angel who had been sent for that purpose. 'May I look at the other place before we ascend to eternal happiness?' 'Easily,' said the Hngel. So they went below and skirmished around, taking in the sights. The angel lost track of the editor, and looked around sbeol to find him. He found him sitting by a furnace, tanning himself, and gaz ing with rapture upon a lot of people in a lire. There was a sigh on the furnace which said : 'Delinquent Sub scribers.' 'Come,' said the angel, 'we must be going.' 'You go on,' said the editor; 'I'm not coming. This is heaven enough for me.' " The Bravery ol Woman Was grandly shown by Mrs. John Uowling of Butler, Pa., in a three years' struggle with a malignant stomach trouble that caused dis trebsiDg attacks of nausea and indi gestion.

Sold by all grocers and liked by all who have used it because when properly pre pHred it tastes like the finest coffee but is free from all its injurious prop erties. Grain-0 aids digestion and strengthens the nerves It is not a stimulant but a health builder, and children, as well as adults, can drink it with great benefit. Costs about Yi as much as coffee. 15 and 2oc. The continuous rise in prices of the principal articles of merchandise in the United States is not due to the trusts, but is caused by the prosperi ty which has come to the country. Production has passed far beyond all previous figures, but demand has grown still faster. This is what has eent prices up. The same thing oc curs in all periods of good times. It is wt 11 to keep this fact in mind. There's always hope while there's One Minute Cough Cure. "An attack of pneumonia left my lungs in bad shape and I was near the first stages of consumption.

The navy department expects to begin the manufacture of smokeless powder atitsmills, near Indian Head, within the next two or three months. Work on the mills has been pushed energetically, and at present about 120U men are employed.- Already about a dozen buildings are complet ed, the electi ic light plant, said to be one of the finest in the world, is in stalled, "and the stand-pipe, 120 feet high, is up. There are ten or twelve other buildings well along toward completion. Altogether thegroup of buildings will number twenty-four or twenty-five with a capacity of 2000 pounds of smokeless powder dailv. This daily output seems largeat first thought, but one ot the big 13-inch guns of the Indiana uses 1000 pounds of powder at a single shot.
