Madeline S. Bridges in Providence Journal.
Once upon a time there lived a prince
who loved nothing in the world so well
as the sound of the nightingale's song.
Therefore he kept a great number of
nightingales in golden cages and fed
and cared for them with his own hands.
One morning he was riding out on a
bird catching expedition, with a groom
to follow him laden with nets and bait.
Over night the bads on the beech trees
had burst forth, and the tender leaves
were glistening in the morning sunshine
like green silk. The spring breeze gen
tly stirred the anemones among the
brown leaves on the ground, and from
the grassy slopes nodded yellow prim
roses. It was a delicious morning fcr
In the densest part of the forest there
was a spring where the animal inhab
itants of the wood were wont to drink.
There our two bird catchers dismount
ed, led their horses to one side and
spread their net. Already the birds
were to be heard in the branches of the
trees. Gay finches, red breasted robins
and steel blue tomtits were hovering
about, and in the distance could be
heard the call of the nightingale.
Suddenly the sound of a song coming
from mortal lips was heard, the birds
flew startled away into the forest, and
the bird catchers were foiled for that
day. A slender maid came tripping to
the brook, a pale cheeked lass with long
brown braids, and in her hands she car
ried an earthen ing. Her song was
such as the village children sing, but
her voice was as clear as a bell. The
prince listened with pleasure and for
gave the songstress for having spoiled
his sport. He came out from behind
the bushes and after bowing to her gave
the maiden a very kindly greeting.
The little lass was startled when the
king's son stood so suddenly before her.
She turned to flee away into the forest,
but the prince begged hr to stay and
to grant him a drink from her pitcher.
She offered the prince its pure, cool
contents, and as be took a long, slow
draft she raised her eyes and allowed
her gaze to wander over his strong,
young figure. He thanked her, gave
back the jng and bad his horse brought
to him. When he was in the saddle, he
bent down again to the pale child and
caressed her brow with his white hand.
Then he rode away.
She followed him with her gaze until
he had quite disappeared behind the
tree trunks. Then she sat down on a
stone and stared at the water. The sun
rose higher, and the strength of his
rays brought out thousands of buds.
"Ah, if 1 only were a nightingale!"
said the maiden to herself. "I would
let myself be caught by him; he would
carry me away to his castle, where 1
ahonld'see him every day." t
"Yon would like to be a nightin
gale?" inquired a voice which came
from an old woman who suddenly stood
before the girl leaning with her palsied
right hand on a crutchlike staff.
"So yon would like to be a nightin
gale?" asked the old woman again.
"That can be managed. By my magic
I will change you into one. In the day
time you must be a nightingale and at
night a little maiden. Will you do
"Yes, mother, I will."
"But as a reward," went on the old
woman, "you must give me 10 years of
your life. Will you do this also?"
"Yes," answered the poor child joy
fully. "Very well; then follow me to my
hut. It is not very far from here. I
must give you a powerful drop to
drink." With these words the witch
led the girl deep into the forest.
The next day when the prince came
to the brook he found the most beauti
ful nightingale he had ever seen sing
ing among the hedges. He laid his net,
and the songstress came fluttering to
ward it, but instead of falling into the
trap it flew over to him and perched it
self upon his hand and so was captured.
He carried the nightingale home,
placed it in a splendid cage and was
delighted with its wonderful notes. To
the other captive birds, however, he
gave their freedom, for he now valued
their singing little more than he would
the twittering of sparrows. At last he
began to love the nightingale so dearly
that he could hardly be parted from her
at all. Wherever he went the nightin
gale accompanied him, and even when
he was on horseback she perched upon
his shoulder. She sang ceaselessly from
morning until evening, but at night
after she had sung the prince to sleep
she took on her mortal form and sitting
at his bedside gazed at her beloved. As
soon as the cocks began to crow the
maiden turned into a nightingale again
and woke the prince with her song. ,
One day the old queen mother sent
for the prince and said to him: "My
dear Bon, next month you will be 18
years old tand will then be crowned
king. A king should also have a queen.
I have therefore sought and found for
you the most beautiful and virtuous
princess under the sun, who also brings
to you half a kingdom as dower. And
that is something. She arrives tomor
row, and the wedding will be celebrated
In three days. Does this please yon?"
".Yes. my ladv mother," answered
to the street. Then the neighbors came
in and said, 'What did General Grant
have in his paper?'- I replied, ' Wash
ington pie a 10 cent slice for himself
and one for that young officer.'
"The war was over, and I had never
heard from my husband and thought ho
must be dead. I was doing well in my
store. I bought all my things in great
quantities and sold them well. I had
many friends and was much respected.
I remember very well that one day a
nigger came into my store and said,
'Have you got any cheap cigars?' " I
gave him one and said, 'This is 5 cents.'
He bit it and then threw it into my
face, crying, 'Have you nothing better
for me than that?' 'Yes, I have some
thing better for you,' I said, and I hit
him over the mouth and nose with a
poker, and he rushed howling and
bleeding into the street. In half an
hour a corporal and two soldiers came
in and arrested me. I laughed and said:
'Yon must allow me time to nut on my
bonnet and lock up my store. Then I
will go with you with pleasure. ' When
we got to the provost, he said, 'Why.
Mrs. 'Guste, I am surprised to see you.
What possible complaint can there be
against yon?' When he had heard my
orys well as tkaiftr's, he told me ,
so go "bade to my store ana said very
severely to the nigger: 'Is this the use
you make of your liberty? Go home
and behave like a white man if yon can. '
"Four years more went by, and I was
sure my husband was dead. I was well
off, had a large market where I em
ployed six men and was fast growing
rich. I had many offers to change my
name, but I always gave the same an
swer to all, 'Thank yon,- sir, for-the
compliment, but I prefer to support
only myself and do not care for the lux
ury of a husband.'
"One day a Mr. Paxton, whose wife
I knew, came in and said, 'Co me up to
our house.' 'I have no time,' I'said.
'What is the matter? Is your wife
sick?' He said, 'No, she is not sick,
but there is a man there who wants to
see you.' I said, 'Well, then, let him
come and see me. ' Mr. Paxton begged
so hard and I got so curious that I put
on my bonnet my old bonnet, for I
would not dress up for an; man who
would not take the trouble to come and
800 me and went home with him to
his house. I grew cold and felt faint,
for there, talking to Mrs. Paxton, was
Auguste my husband looking just
the same as when he left me eight years
before. My heart beat like a hammer,
but I just said: 'Well, so you are alive
and have turned up at last, have yon?
Where have you been for eight yean?
Have you had a good time and been
traveling all over the world?' 'Oh, Jo
sephine,' he said and began to cry.
"Poor fellow, he had been wounded
and taken prisoner and very ill. When
the war was over and he was well again,
he began to hunt ior me. Not finding
me in Columbus, he went to every place
where he had ever been before, which
meant a good many journeys for a man
who had always traveled all the time.
No doubt he enjoyed himself very much.
He had been in Vicksburg the year be
fore. Now he was on his way down the
river from St. Louis to New Orleans.
The boat was delayed for a few hours
at Vicksburg, and Auguste was taking
a walk when he met Mr. Paxton and
began talking tohim.( He asked if there
were many French people in Vicksburg.
'A good many, ' said Mr. Paxton. Then
Auguste asked about the women, and
when he heard there was a Mrs. 'Guste
who bad a market, and whose name
was such a hard one that everybody
called her Mrs. 'Guste for short, he said
he wanted to see her, and asked how to
go to her store. When he started, he
said his knees felt very queer, and he
wondered if he could walk there, and if
it was really his Mrs. 'Guste; and if -L.
would be glad to see him.
"He reached, as he thought, the store
to which Mr. Paxton had directed him,
and there he found a man a dreadful
looking man, he said weighing sugar.
'Is this your store?' asked Auguste.
'Yes, sir,' answered the man. 'What
can I do for you?' Auguste did not say
another word to the man, but rushed
out into the street, crying: 'MonDieu!
Josephine is married to another. I will
travel and never return. ' Then he hur
ried back to the boat and met Mr. Pax
ton, who said, 'Did you know Mrs.
'Guste?' Auguste answered, 'How can
she be Mrs. 'Guste when she is married
to another who is not 'Guste?' Auguste
had gone into a wrong store one not a
Quarter the size of mine. But he was too
exhausted to go again to find me and said
Mr. Paxton must bring me to his house,
" 'Well, 'Guste,' said I, 'you may
stay in my house, and if you are not go
ing to try to make me travel I am really
very glad to see you, but if you are go
ing to travel you may travel alone as you
have for eight years. While you remain
in Vicksburg I will support you and will
6end you your coffee to" your bed in the
morning. I.getnpat 4 and will not

will never travel.' " New York Post

Interpreting a Dreawbook.
A young married woman, living in
the east end, had a peculiar dream one
evening. She dreamed that she was
down town on Euclid ayenue with her
baby and was preparing to board a car
to go home. The step of the new Eu
clid avenue motor was rather high, and
she requested a gentleman to hold her
baby while she boarded the car. He
consented, but before he could return
the infant to the arms of its mother the
car started and left without the child.
The grief of the young woman was in
tense, and so troubled was her mind
that she awoke. Her relief at finding
it all a dream was so great that she de
cided to buy a book on dreams and
learn what it all signified.
The next day she called at a down
town book 6tore and related her dream
to the clerk, who chanced to be an ac
quaintance. She purchased the book
and turned to the index, where she
found that such a dream as she experi
enced foretold that the dreamer would
receive twice as much as she had lost.
''What would I get," she said to the
clerk innocently, "that would be twice
as much to me as my baby?"
"Twins," said the clerk laconically,
and she has not spoken to him since.

. Baby Keeeaed After It Had Bee Carried
Twt Miles by Its Captor.
Last Saturday a big wolf which has
terrorised the people of the Bum pas cave
region, in North Carolina, for the last
two or three years entered the cabin of
a mountaineer named Brown during the
nioaientary absence of the housewife,
and, seizing the only occupant, an infant
months old, by the clothing in the re
gion of the chest, lifted it from the rude
cradle and bore it away into the moun
tains. When the mother returned to the
house and missed the baby, she rushed to
the door just in time to see the wolf and
its precious burden disappear into the
The distracted woman began to scream.
This brought thehusband, who was chop
ping wood not far away, to the scene in
a high state of excitement. The story
from the lips of the hysterical mother al
most drove the brave fellow daft, but he
seised his ax, called his dog and started
in hot pursuit. There were about two
inches of snow on the ground, and it prov
identially enabled the desperate father
of the kidnaped infant to strike the trail
of the wolf immediately after leaving
his dooryard. Once upon the track of
the beast, he rushed through the moun
tains with a speed born of distraction,
expecting every moment to come upon
the old assassin licking his chops red
with the warm blood of his victim.
About two miles from his cabin the
tracks of the wolf led the pursuer under
a long shelf of rock protruding from the
side of a mountain. There was no snow
here, and the father lost the trail, but he
now urged his dog, which upt to this
time he had compelled to remain with
him. The dog took the lead, and the
man followed, fully expeoting to find the
entrance to the wolfs den, from which
he could hardly hope to get the baby
alive. But bis fears were groundless.
He soon came upon his faithful dog wag
ging his tail and looking down at a little
white bundle at his feet. It was the
baby, sound asleep and most frozen, ap
parently unhurt otherwise.
Brown took off his coat, and wrapping
the infant snugly in it started hastily for
home. He soon met his wife and two or
three of the neighbors to whom she had
given the alarm. It was a most remarka
ble rescue. The mountaineers say that
it was" only a freak of the "mad" wolf,
but the little one no doubt owed its life
to a drenching of petroleum given it for
some cutaneous affection by its mother
just before it was carried away. The
odor of the oil was too much for his
wolfship. He probably sniffed about
the child after laying it down under the
rocks and preparing to make a delicious
meal, then left in disgust. St. Louis
Saving the Drops of Water That Washed

The latest event in the religious world

L. Box and Jerry Dammon against Jessie

The decision was in favor of Miss Sin

parties again appealed to the secretary,

A lad of this town is now suffering
from being vaccinated 47 times, and his
caso is regarded as about as serious as
smallpox would be. His name is Werts
and his home is on Mulberry street. Re
cently the school board ordered all the
school children vaccinated, and Werts'
little sister was one of the victims. The
virus in her arm caused an itching sen
sation, and on the sly she used her hair
brush to alleviate it. At the same time
she accommodated her brother, loaning
him her brush, which he used in lieu of
a regular flesh brush to rub his back.
The virus on the brush was effectually
introduced in the lad's system, and his
parents becoming frightened sent for a
doctor. He came, shook his head doubt
fully and sent for Health Officer Rich
ter and two other physicians. It looked
like smallpox, but the little sister di
vulged her secret, and the whole matter
was explained. There are on young
Werts back 4 separate places where the
vaccination is getting m its work. Wil

Anti-German Prejudice In France.
Paris furnishes two or three odd fea
tures of life. Besides the campaign be
tween society and anarchy, the anti-German
prejudice has taken a new form.
The proprietor of the famous Bohemian
restaurant known as the Dead Hat the
other day insisted that four German art
ists dining there speak French instead of
their native language, saying that his
customers objected. The victims are said
to have been subjected to the same an
noyance in other restaurants. They re
fused to comply and left the place.
Stamped His Collar.
Postal authorities here were surprised
the other day to discover m the mail
matter a slightly soiled linen collar. At
first it seemed that some absentminded
person nau mistaKen a letter uox ior a
soiled clothesbasket. But an address on
one side of the Imen, with a canceled
postage stamp and a letter written on
the other, proved that the linen had been
put to use as the conyeyer of intelligence.
So the collar was back stamped and the
missive delivered, Worcester (Mass.)

A bold attempt was made in bread
daylight recently by two gypsy women
to kidnap Harold Deane, the bright lit
tle curly haired 8-year-old son of .Edward
G. Deane, a wealthy boot and shoe dealer
at Matteawan, N. Y. The Deane family
live in a handsome residence on Cliff
street in that village.
"For several days a band of gypsies
have been encamped a few miles from
Matteawan. It was tne custom of the
women of the party to roam around the
village every day. On Tuesday after
noon little Harold Deane was allowed
by his colored nurse to go out in the
front yard and play.
The child had been there only a short
time when two gypsy women came along
who were ostensibly selling fancy colored
baskets. They boldly entered the yard
of the Deane residence, and one of them
asked little Harold if he wanted a pretty
basket. The child replied that he did,
when one of the women handed the boy
a little basket, which he gleefully accept
ed. Then the women each took hold of
one of the child's hands and led him
gently out into and up Cliff street. The
boy went quietly and willingly. The
nurse missed him soon afterward and
went out in the street to look for Harold,
but he was nowhere to be seen. She
screamed and then ran two or three
blocks, when she was finally told that a
little boy had been seen walking along
with two wild looking women. She con
tinued on and eventually came across
the trio on the outskirts of the village,
over half a mile from the child's home.
The gypsy women were still leading
the child by the hands. The nurse grab
bed the little boy and attempted to wrest
him from his captors. The gypsies held
on firmly to the child, however, not be
ing at all disposed to let him go. But
the nurso screamed and fought them, and
when the other women saw that people
were coming to her rescue they let go of
the child and ran away.
While the nurse was taking him home
little Harold said that the gypsy women
had promised to take him on the cars
ever so far away. When officers from
Matteawan visited the gypsy camp, a
few hours later in an effort to arrest the
would be kidnapers, they found it de
serted, as the members of tho band had
all hurriedly pulled upstakes and driven
off. The incident created considerable
excitement in the village. New York
A MYSTERIOUS PICTURE.
The readiness with which French ju

of their wives' lovers leads sometimes to
awkward mistakes by too hasty spouses.

her husband suspected- The master of
the house entered and caught sight of
the man behind a curtain. He pulled a

Story of a Strange Coincidence Which. Looks
Lilco an Answer to Prayer.
We have in our possession a photo
graph of one of the strangest and most
remarkable accidents that ever came to
our knowledge. It lies on the desk as
we write and was handed to us by M. E.
Allen, a photographer by occupation,
who told us the interesting little story
connected with it. The photo repre
sents a saucer, in the center of which is
a distinct likeness of a human face. It
is the bust of a man, with curly hair and
dark beard, and several to whom it has
been exhibited at once recognized a re
semblance between the engravings usu
ally seen of Christ.
It seems that some time since a Mrs.
Timmerman of Piedmont, S. C, where
young Mr. Allen has been in the photo
graph business, suffered the loss of a
favorite daughter. The bereavement
left the mother broken hearted. She is
a Christian woman, and she prayed that
God would give her some token by which
she might be comforted. One day,
while cleaning the dinner table, in gath
ering np the dishe3preparatoryto clean
ran into a saucer which had not been
used. In taking up the saucer to wipe
away the settlings she 6aw, to her intense
astonishment, that the coffee grounds
had a perfect profile of a human bust,
and, what was yet more wonderful, that
head and face formed the ideal likeness
of Jesus Christ. She recognise! it as
such instantly and accepted the strange
coincidence as an answer to her prayer.
The grounds dried on tho saucer and yet
retained the shape they first assumed.
The dish has been photographed by our
informant, and any one so desiring may
see it at our office. Mr. Allen assures
us that no human hand has touched the
remarkable production, and that Mrs
Timmerman is a reliable and truthful
lady. To say the least of the occur
rence, it is a very remarkable circum
stance. Gainesville (Ga.) Eagle.

hotel proprietor of Norristown, Tuesday,

Finley, William Shine and John Good

Shine waded in the creek searching tor
snappers, while Goodwin remained on
the bank gunning for snipe.
Without knowing it, Finley walked
into a bed of quicksand. He did not
realize for some minutes the peril he was
in. Rapidly he began to sink, and then

but at the same time his left foot pene

efforts and with all his strength pulled
at his left leg. It yielded, but the right
leg went down to an alarming depth.
Finley called to Shine for help, and
tho latter responded quickly. He tried
in vain afc his own peril to extricate his
friend. By this time the quicksand had
almost swallowed Finley's legs, and the

victim was sinking more rapidly now,
