Why Robert A Sher Starr ay ' " "You will be ure to come, Helen?" "Ot course I lhall, Robert, unleM I hav fealler. Ooodby." How young and hinrtrom my husband looked as ha turned at the car line to wava ana a last goodby, and then he wu gone gone for all day among the trlala and temptation of city life. Aa I stood on our tiny porch looking Into the little garden, beautiful aa Only nature Is beautiful, I thouaht no wife rould be as happy as I, and aa I went about my tnorn ! Ing tanks snatches of fy songs fell from ' my lip. The future looked bright that ! morning. Robert had been promoted with increase In salary, and aa we had been tnar l ried six months this waa welcomed gladly, ' as It meant more comfort In Our humble '. home. It was quite a mystery to me why Robert ', Insisted so strongly that I should come to ' the factory o meet him every night at o'clock, Juet when I wanted to be getting his dinner, but he would laughingly tell me I he "wanted to watch his cook," so, of ' course, I went, as I was glad to see Robert after my long day at home alone. I some- times shrank from the' rough men and I women I met at the factory. Robert,- who was now head bookkeeper. Mr. Fairbanks, ; the Inspector, and Mr. Miles, the proprietor, were the only men besides the "hands" . whom I saw at the factory, but Robert eften bpoke of James Brown aa one of the force, but I never saw him at the factory ; and neglected to inquire why there came a time when I had reason to ask why. ' After my houae was put In order and I .' had donned a cool morning wrapper I took ! my needlework and sat among my pets In ' ,eur "luxury," as w termed our tiny gar ,den. As my neighbors were slow to call : and aa I waa a stranger In the city I often felt like the ppet "that there is no loneli ness like the loneliness of a great city." It wss neartng 5 o'clock and I was Just t .putting on my hat to go . to the factory '.when two very gaily-dressed young ladies I came In at our gate. I Invited them Into t our cosy parlor and we spent a pleasant half hour In commonplace remark until :' Miss Vender asked ma "how I liked my new ' tome?" i "Very much, Indeed. I am quite proud W my tiny garden." ( ; "Yes, wa wondered how Robert could : afford a houae and garden, but since he has been promoted and you go to meet him very night It la eaelly explained." They stayed on for another half hour, but . J heard and answered as one in a dream. What did she mean? Ifow did she know Robert was promoted? We hud the houae be fore he was promoted, and how could my 'going to meet Robert possibly affect his ' . financial condition?" These and a thousand ether questions raced through my brain ' until It seemed on Are. At last they rose to go Just as the clock struck 6 too late '..to aee Robert at the factory, but I would walk down the street until I met him, so as I turned down L street I saw Robert . and a strange man arm In arm talking . earnestly, and stopping In front of a fine building the stranger ran lightly up the '. ateps, evidently expecting Robert to follow, for aa he turned around Robert, with one . toot on the step, saw me, and as. I cams tip to him his face waa very pale and he ' fcald tremblingly, "Oh, Helen, you are Just ' In time" "Just In time to meet your Mend If you will be so kind," I said laugh ingly. "Mr. Brown-Mrs. Stone." "Good evening, Mr. Brown; I had begun , to believe your existence a myth. Robert ften spoke of you, bat1 you Were never t the factory." . "My duties keep me at my private office ,. At the time you visit' our factory and, as I , am a busy man, I wish you good evening." Lifting hla hat he passed into hi pri vate (?) office. . "Robert, are you not well?" I asked as .wa hurried horns. He did not answer me, but as soon as wa were Inside our home he flung his arms around me and pressed ma to hla breast, and a I looked up in his face I saw tears in his eyes, and, think ing him tired 1 went quickly Into the kitchen to prepare supper. Ah, how much 'better It would be If wives would be a companion Instead of a servant. How much better to attend to their intellectual needs and share their burdens than to attend only to physical needs. Bo engrossed was 2 In preparing the meal that I almost forgot the conversation of the afternoon, and - when I did 'remember It I decided to aay nothing about it, a T did not wish to trouble my husband. So wa did not refer to the evening's adventures again and I continued to go to the factory every even ing to walk home with Robert, yet I did not sea Mr. Brown again for soma time. '. The summer passed very pleasantly and , all went well until, In early autumn, I was taken very sick with a fever and during this sickness Miss Vender was very kind to we In fact, nursed me as If I was a sister, and wa became very fast friends, spending many hours together as I became better, At last I was again able to take up my household duties and' resumed the accus. tomed plans, except my visit to the fac tory. Some way I did not feel the want of Robert's society so much now, as Miss Vender spent so "much time at our home that my spare moments were devoted to her, and It was her custom to com at about ( o'clock for our afternoon chat. In fact, it was she who obaerved one evening that Robert waa late home so often and that she Imagined he looked pale and worn, I remarked that he was probably doing extra work, although I had forgotten to Inquire why he was late.

Are you doing extra work so as to pay the doctor bill without drawing on our tiny 'rulny day' nest egg? If you are, you must stop it, as you look positively haggard tonight." "Now, my Helen, who put that Into your pretty head? Iesve the doctor's bill to me and go get me aome dinner, for I am nearly starved." But I noticed that he ate but a mouthful, and I resolved to go to the factory at 6 next evening and speak to Mr. Miles In regard to Robert's over working himself. Bo at half-pant 5 I set out to go to the factory, but ere I had gone far I found t was not to escape Ml Vender, for I met her on the way to see me, but I deter mined to do my duty, so I told her sh would have to excuse me, as I had set out to meet Robert. "Just the thing," she cried, "come Into this millinery shop and help me select a fall hat and you can sea Robert as he passes." Unwillingly I went with her. and In a few minute I saw Robert and Mr. Brown go by, arm In arm as before, but on Robert's face there was a terrible look of anguleh. Why wa I so suspicious? Why did my heart fall me? Should I follow? Of course, Robert was on his way home early tonight. These thoughts came crowding through my brain and I came out of the shop Just In time to see Robert and Mr. Brown enter that gentleman's "private office." Should I go in? Yes, it wss only some private business, but I knew Robert would not mind, so I opened the door, and the first sound that met my ears was the swish, swish, of cards the sight that met my eyes as I looked in at the door opposite me turned my blood to stone. There sat my trusted husband, paie ae death, opposite him sat James Brown; upon the table between them lay pile of money, CM I afterward learned,' all of Robert's salary drawn that day. As I tccped upon the polished floor Robert looked up, his eyes met mine, and with a groan and a whispered, "too late," his head sank upon the table. Without noticing Mr. Brown' "Good avenlng," I went wlftly to my husband' side, crying out, Robert, my boy, my trusted husband, how could you" Without a word he arose and, trembling with every step, he led me to the door. saying, "Let u go home, Helen. By the time we reached home the ner vous strain under which I had been gave way, and after Robert had quieted me, looking Into my face, he said, adly, "Once you were Just- In time, do you remember. do you understand now why I wished you to come to the factory every night. You did not know- that you had married a gambling fiend, but, oh, my wife, my wife. It is terrible that you must suffer so. I have ruined" Hush, Robert, every word you utter stabs my heart." "No, I will not stop, you shall hear me out The money I should gladly have given the doctor for saving your life I lost In that den, every penny of our savings from the bank Is gone, and had you not come tonight we should have been penni less. But, wife, you can never know what a passion I. have for cards. Inherited from my father, and led on by James Brown have brought you to sorrow and shame and all Is lost." My husband, do not say all la lost. You say I was In time once to save you; If I had done my duty by you instead of yield ing to the selfish desires ' of myself and Miss Vender, who Is a very worldly woman, had I loved you more unselfishly and remembered that we sre all human. and oh, Robert, It is all my fault" Wife, can you trust me again. I should have told you before only I feared to dis tress you, but the night you asked me If I wa doing extra work to pay the doc tor' bill I came near telling you why I waa so late and aak you to save me. But, knowing all, will you help mo to conquer this terrible desire, redeem me from James Brown, my gambling friend from boyhood, risk your happiness again for my sake oh, wife, say you 'can trust me." Trust you, Robert, yes, but we both need to trust our Heavenly Father. Let us ask Him to strengthen us each to do our duties." Five years have passed since Robert fell and rose again. It has been a bitter struggle, but, by God's help, we have won the battle and now turn our attention to training our little ones to depend on Him from childhood, in order to prevent their fall. I often think of how nearly I cam to being the cause of Robert' fall by not doing my wifely duty. POPPING THE QUESTION IN 1904 as Pertlneat Remark on a Topic of Everlasting Hamaa Iatereat. The new year 1 a leap year, but the ad dition of another day to the month of Feb ruary Is by no means its moat Important peculiarity. For during this year, accord ing to Immemorial tradition, it will Ve good form for women If thev chnnae tn propose matrlmdny to men Instead of wait Ing for men to propose it to them. Most people or either sex would say Ithout a moment's hesitation that thl leap year tradition had never been a leap year custom and that it waa either a Joke or an abaurdlty without a thing in reason or in human nature to support it . But that is going too far, for there Is no folk lore of any description, whether song, rid dle or proverb, that Is not. In the laat nalysls, founded on some Immutable prin ciple of human nature, and so It la with women popping the question In leap year. The principle of human nature on which this- leap year tradition is founded is the paradoxical on that, while the verbal and external proposition of marriage pro- ceeda from the man, every perfectly nor mal and happy matrimonial match has Its initiative in the heart of the woman There are many kinds of courtship and marriage, but no marriage is ever a happy one unleaa the woman courts the man, al belt without his knowing It. There Is a profound and Important rea son why thl must be so. It Is woman' nature, not only in affair of the heart, but In everything else, to be unable to change her spontaneous taatea and prefer ences. Her like and dislikes display remarkable fixity. She doe not make them and she cannot unmake them Whether It be In the realm of cookery, art, music, areas, amusement, friendship or love, thl principle control her. She can be dragooned away temporarily from her natural bent, but she Is then a crushed woman, and sooner or later she will revert to her original Impulse. One may say It is exactly the same with a man, but It is not. A nun's preferences are largely a matter of ratiocination. They are modified by argument, by expediency, by considerations of Interest, by his con captions ot duty, by hla Ideas of prudence, This makes his heart. In matter of love, a sort of cheosboard on which all the feelings contend for the mastery. He Is capable of loving a woman for a great variety of reasons besides the Involuntary admiration called falling In love. It Is on account of this essential differ ence between men and women that the woman's preference U the thing mainly to be considered If marriage la to ba stable and happ - Th maoaa learn to kv a woman whs inXpei Is lovely and who lor him, but a wrrraan ran learn nothing of the kind. If she Is mated to the' man of her spontaneous choice she win be constant, but In any other sort of marriage she will be Incon- ant. Hapry Is the man, therefore, whose wife by mere instinct pitched upon him a her ideal and woe to the man whose wife waa swervpd from her Instinctive choice by the dvlce of parents, the love of money or ny other Influence to wed him. This Is the reason that It is folly for a man to set out to win a woman's heart t I oast, by devotion. The only wise thing he can do In this line Is to stand around. ccldentally and unconsciously, as It were, and let her do the rent. A fair woman who has been begged and ntreatnd to love a man until she has con sented Is not worth 'having, for she will most assuredly make Mm miserable. It the' woman who ha courted the inai who makes a happy marriage and a happy home. ' It Is certainly a most singular thing that while this Is the eternal law and Inevita ble course of true love it should still be contrary to nature for a woman to propose to a man In words, let so It 1s, and court ship forever remains the man' In form and tha woman' In spirit. Both In leap year and In every other year the woman virtually propose in every happy marriage. Chicago Chronicle. SIXTY YEARS IN POLITICS Experience of a Washington Man Who lasg Songs for "Tippecanoe and Tyler Too." Edward C. Wade has printed In Washing ton papers some Interesting notes of his life, which covers a large part of the political history of the United States. He says: 'I have taken an active part In pollUrs, and have performed every duty incum bent upon mo at every election. In 1840 sang the whig song for Tippecanoe and Tyler, too. In 1844 I sang the song for Henry Clay of Kentucky, and for every whig candidate as long as the party con tinued In existence. I voted In Georgia for General Grant for president, and was the only white man In my county that did so. I have voted for every republican candidate for president from that day until this. . "William Henry Harrison died and I saw John Tyler become the president of the nlted States, and I also saw htm turn the government over into the keeping of the democrats, because he had failed to re ceive the nomination.

'I saw Benjamin Harrison in an effort to procure a renomlnatlon for president bring overwhelming defeat to himself and party. ,, "I voted for McKlnley and Hobart in 1896 at Quitman, Brooks county, Ga., and for McKlnley and Roosevelt In 1900 at Los Angeles, Cal., my present legal residence and voting place. A few day after the last named elec tion I wrote a letter to Senator M. A. Hanna, telling him I thought, logically, he should he the next president, and Ir nelved a graceful reply from the senatar. But It will be borne In mind that I hid not thought for a moment that there was a human being on this earth who desired to take the life of the good, great, and grand William McKlnley.

Stomach trouble is the most distressing affliction known to humanity, and takea on so many forms that it is often impos sible for those without a medical educa tion to decide from a patient's symptoms as to just what particular ailment is afflicting them. People suffering from this dread disease become nervous and cannot sleep. They have belching and sourness of the stomach, bad dreams, acute stomach pains, or colic, a feeling of fullness after meals, appetites varying from ravenous to that where there is no desire for food. ; They have indigestion, constipation, heartburn, yellow skin, coated tongue, bad taste in the mouth, liver trouble, and catarrh of the stomach. Now all these symptoms mean simply, that the stomach has grown weak, ana U not properly digesting the food given it. The intensity of action in modern life, the nervous strain in business and so ciety, and the improper mastication of the food all contribute their share ' towards bringing about this condition. - Many preparations have been offered to the public for the relief of those suf fering from stomach trouble which aid temporarily only, for after a little the patient feels worse than before treatment. ' Within the last six months, however, there baa been perfected a remedy for all these ailments, which absolutely reaches the seat of disease and positively cures any and all troubles of the stomach, bowels, lungs and throat. It relieves inflammation, builds op the system, enriches the blood, strengthens the various organs of the body, and is guaranteed not only to give immediate relief, but effect a permanent cure. This remedy is known as Milks' Emulsion, and is wonderfully beneficial to children as well as adults. Its effect on the sick is immediate, and one bottle will give sat isfactory results or your money will be returned by your druggist. Price 50c. per bottle.

THE EMPER0FTS BODYGUARD Ranch of Rnw Reoralts Which Rallied Around the Person of Corea'a Rnler. "Just before the late Spanish-American war," said O'Reilly, late private In th Ninth, U. S. A., "the emperor of Corea got the Idea that he would like, above all things else, a foreign bodyguard. HI majesty stands about four feet four In hla high heels, and I don't blame him for thinking that he would be safer for the presence of seventy-five or a hundred six-footers around, about and under th imperial throne. "Once he had made iH his mind to the desirability of a foreign bodyguard he sent one of the princes of the royal family over to Shanghai. He sent to Shanghai because that la the general headquarters of the noble army of gentlemen adventurers In the far east. If you went Into the main streets of Shanghai at that time and called out, 'I have a warrant for your arrest,' half the white men within hearing would start at the dead run for the back country. There were dozens of men in Shanghai then who had fought on four continents and In half a dozen wars apiece, and who were only looking out for another chance to get busy. "Up comes hi prlncelet and goes to call on the foreign consuls, looking for in formation. It's a curious thing, but It's true, that when anybody tn the far east start out to look for fighting men he goes first to the office of the United States con sul and from there to the office of the English consul. If he don't find what he wants at either place he turns around and goes home. That may be something to be ashamed of but It's so. "Well, sir, this Corean prince didn't have to go far. Somebody around the United States consulate gives him the engraved calling card of 'Colonel Pits Edward Hlg glnson, C. 8. A., late of Richmond, Va.,' and told him If he Was1 looking-for a soldier who knew his business1 he needn't look any further. The colonel had come out of China as consul to one of the smaller free ports, and after the other administration came In he handed over his commission to his suc cessor and removed his carpetsack down to Shanghai. One reason why he didn't go any further waa because he didn't have the price. "The colonel had a pair of long, white, waxed mustache 1 that were enough to strike terror to the soul of any oriental. Besides, -he always wore his swtrd. " 'Ah won that sword at Bull Run, suh,' the colonel was used to say, 'an' by th' etuhnal, suh. Ah Intend to weah it.' "The colonel was the chief patron and the presiding genius of the only American bar In Shanghai at the time. So he was al ways easy to find. And if you add to his white whiskers and to his sword a manner of awful dignity It Is easy to understand why the Corean prince was greatly im pressed when he went to call on the colo nel. "The upshot of it waa that the colonel wa engaged at a salary of $3,000 a year to organise a foreign guard for the emporor ot Corea. lie was authorized to employ a drill master at $2,500 and seventy-five pri vate at $1,000 each. "It took him only a few day to fill his company. The first man his eye lit on a he looked around th big room at Shang hai waa "Bill' Young, later known to fame as chief of scouts with Ben Lawton. 'Bill' tood some four inches more than six feet in his socks and he wa always looking for trouble. It took less than fifteen min utes to secure Bill's signature to a year's contract to act as drtllmaster for the body guard. The other seventy-five were not hard to find. McAllister was one of them. McAUlBter started out in life as captain In an English cavalry regiment. One night he lost something like a thousand pound more money than he wa able to pay, and when he next awoke to a realising sense of things he was sitting on the quay al Hongkong, wondering how he got there Jones wa another, though that wa not the nam he originally went under. Jones had fought In revolutions all over Central and South America and came out to China in an interlude. "The Corean prince and Colonel Hlggin son met on the eighth day, and the colonel had all seventy-five of us with him. W were all ready to sign contracts for a year or tor forty years at the rate of $1,000 per annum. We signed In round American script and each of us got the equivalent of $10 in good United States gold and trans portation to Chemulpo in advance. Che- mulpo la the seaport of Seoul, tha capital of Corea. Look it up on the map which was printed in the Tribune yesterday and you 11 find I'm right. "Wa were all loaded on that condemned steamboat and w took with us as baggage a clean collar each and an awful thirst. Finally we got to Chemulpo. Colonel Hlg glnson marched us off In regular military order and lined us up along the edge of th dock. I'm not denying that we were a fearsome looking lot. There wasn't a man In the bunch that stood under six feet. The Corean prince got off and marched down the front of ua. looklnc somewhat frightened at the eight. I wasn't blaming him. "The prince waved his hand and made some motion at Colonel Ulggluaon. " 'After you,' aald the colonel, bowing low. 'your humble servant, sua.' "Then they loaded u on s6me cattle car and carried us by rail to Seoul. By the time w got there we were awful thirsty, and there 1 no use In denying the same. Once more th colonel unloaded us and made us line up, company front, and then w marched twenty-five abreaat up to the hotel, where quarter had been provided for us. Seoul trembled at the sight of us, and well it might. ' "When we got t'o th hotel we were as signed quarter and our commanding offi cer ordered u to star arms. We dldnt have any anna to stack, but w did put down our empty gripsacks and start out looking for fodder and other amusement. Coma midnight th colonel could only find half of us. The rest showed up between that time and noon the next day. At about tha same Urns there waa a tremendous pro tect mad by the Japanese ambassador to Cores. It appears that the missing half of the royal bodyguard hsd become entangled with the soldiers attached to the Japanese embassy and put them entirely to the bad. The Japanese ambassador made a strong protest against the establishment of a for eign bodyguard. He declared that he would regard such an establishment as a dis tinctly hostile act. I don't blame him at all. "The Corean emperor could not o offend the Jan. IT held a council of war and de cided that he would disband th foreign bodyguard. But before the foreign body guard was willing to ba disbanded It In sisted that It ivtTy member should be paid his salary for a year In advance. That was what the contract called for, and that was what was finally paid. But the Corean gov ernment wa far too wise to give each of those seventy-five Indians a whole $1,000 In ready cash to spend In Seoul. Instead It paid them In checks on the Hong Kong Shanghai bank, payable In Shanghai. The seventy-five, with Colonel Hlgginson at their head, marched down and got on board of the steamer bound for Shanghai. Al most all the way the whole seventy-five at at the bow, with one hand on their checks, looking out for the light of Shang hai. Tou can Imagine what happened after the steamer came into dock. We got in Just fifteen minutes before the bank closed and we all got our checks cashed thnt afternoon." Chicago Tribune. .

I tried your Vefjfelablei Compound on the recommendation of a friend from the East who was visiting me. "Iam glad that I followed her ad ice, for every ache and pain is gone, and not only this, but my general health is much improved. I have a fine appetite and have gained in flesh. My earnest advice to suffering women is to put aside all other medicines and to take Lydia K. Plnkltnm's Vege table Compound." Miss Kki.i.ib Holmes, 510 No. Division St., Buffalo, N.
