considered several bills in committee of

abolishing the days of grace on notes,
checks and drafts payable on demand.

MATED AT LAST.
Cho was a littlo maiden awpet,
Wbo all her suitors bated;
E'.:t, aa she grew to years discreet
Her coldness much abated.

Yet wben death claimed ber for bis own

There is love on the mountains aa well
as in tho valleys, and that love acts in
exactly the same channels. One after
noon, as I was approaching a mountain
hamlet called "Ilerkimer's," I met a
young man of about 20, who, as I soon
found, had been waiting my coming,
lie was a typical young mountaineer,
but he Eeemed so embarrassed and flus
t rated that I almost liecame suspicious
of him. lie finally asked me to sit down
on a rock by the roadside, and when we
were down he said:
"Stranger, I reckon you 'un is to stop
"You'll go to Bailey's, in course. They
hain't nobody else got a spar' bed fur
"Yes, I was told to go to Bailey's."
"They 'un is expectin' you 'un, and
you 'un will lie treated handsome."
He moved around nervously, got up
and sat down, and when I asked if he
had crampa or toothache, he blurted out:
"Stranger, I want to ax a plain ques
tion. You 'un won't be mad?"
"Ilev you 'un cum courtin'?"
"Bless yau, no! What put such an
idea into your head?"
"Dunno. Ever hoar of Betty Bailey?"
"No! Why, I thought everybody had.
She's 'Lasses. Nobody else can c ompare."
"Ah! I seo! You love her and was
afraid I'd come to cut yPH out. Case of
"Stranger, be you 'un mar'd?" he sol
"Yes, for tho last hundred years. .Mar
ried and a grandfather. Even if I fell in
love with tho fair Betty I couldn't marry
"Serious as tho grave, my boy. Don't
you worry over me. Indewl, if it comes
handy I'll put in a good word for you."
"You 'un will chitter (talk) for me!"
"Put it thar!"
We shook, and then ho stqod up,
scratched his head, looked all around,
and finally lowered his voice and said:
"Jim Burton ar' arter her, too! Dog
gone him, but he 'lows to cut me out!"
"Oh-ho! Then you have a rival? What
sort of a fellow is Jim?"
"Got tea acres, a cabin, a gun, two
dogs, and ho un says he'll hev a mule
"And wdiat have you got?"
"More'n he 'un, but he's purty to boot."
"I see. Well, you appear to be a good
hearted young man, and if I can give
you a lift I'm bound to do it. Don't
count too much on me, however. Women
are strange creatures. I may even hurt
your case by trying to, help, ypvj.n"
We Giiook hands a-id separated, and in
due lime I reached Bailoy's house and
wa3 cordially welcomed. I found Betty
to bo a pretty good looking girl of 18 or
ID, unusually talkative and intelligent,
but wo had scarcely eaten supper when
a boy c.iiae in and said that a narj

he clicked his heels together.
"Well, she's a nice, tidy girl, and will
make you a good wife. How soon does
the marriage come off?"
" Crick v! But I wish it was to-mor-rer!"
"Is any one else loving her?"
"One more dog gone his earlocks! If
that ar' Tom Wharton don't keep hisself
away I'll 6hute him!"
I promised tQ spiealif a good word for
him and went back to the house, and
hardly had Mrs. Bailey and I got seated
for a smoke when she called:
"You thar. Bet? Cum yere!"
"What is it, mam?"
"Thar's bin too much fussing. I'm
goin to ask the stranger which 'un. Will
Betty blushed and fidgeted and the
"I don't believe in fussing. When I
was axed if I would marry pop I said
'yes right off, and thar' wasnt no, fus
sing.' Be$ haa to, serious somebody.
What d'ye think, stranger?"
"Is she loved by two young men?"
"She are. Kept up a fussing here fur
a hull vear and hain't said 'yes' to either

"Well, 111 abide."
I was trying to avoid the issue when a
rap caino at tho door and in walked a
man of about U3. He was a fair looking
man end lived about ten miles away
Bailey came in jubt then, and was called
out doors by the new arrival for a con
sultation lasting about ten minutes.
Then the mother was called out, and
upon her return 6he took Betty into an
other room. Then the men came in, and
pretty soon Bailey, his wife and myself
had tho kitchen, while Betty and the
stranger had the parlor.
"He's a widower from the next cove,"
explained Mrs. Bailey. "Wants to be
hitched agin. Want our Bet. What
d'ye i.ink. stranger?"
"That would settle the fussing."
" 'Deed it would. It's got so pap and
me can't stand ' it. His name is Bill
Stovin and he's worth a heap. What
d'ye think, stranger?"
"I like the idea. If Betty marries one
of the young men somoone will get shot.
Better give 'em both the 6lip."
"That's it! Too much fussing. We
can't stand it no mo'."
Next morning at breakfast the mother
inquired of Betty, as she poured the
"Will ye abide or not? The stranger
knows what Bill was yere fur?"
"Reckon it's too late," was the blush
"I've abided to Bill."
"Is the day sot?"
"Thank the Xrd! The fussing is all
over! Jist what the stranger was going
to say. Ho knows. Ho wouldn't be
way down yere if he didn't. Pap, you
ax an extra blessin' this meal, and stran

The New Explosive.
The discovery, by a Pittsburg chemist,
of a new powder which is more powerful
for email arms than any previously in
use, is an interesting indication of what
the United States can do when its. atten
tion is turned to providing the materials
of wa,r, Wth fast dynamite cruisers,
dynamite cannon a possibility for cast
steel heavy artillery, and a newjpowder
for small arms amoug our late warlike
products, it will ho seen that we are pre
pared, if it oomes to the test, to repeat
the achievements of the days when our
monitors and Parrott and Rodman guns
reduced tho Old World navies to the con
dition of old junk. According to the
statements given the explosive power of
the new powder is somewhat less than
that of dynamite, and probably consider
ably below the later inventions known in
Europe. But the claim of superior safety
and its adaptability to firearms with the
possibility of making a tunnon in which
it can, ba used, vill, if substantiated by
experience, make- it far more efficient in
war than tho old explosives. Give Pitts
burg a little time and she will mako it
appear the part of wisdom for tho Old
World to leave us alone. Pittsburg Dis

dotique. What Weakenit tho Eyes.
There i3 a popular error that the man
who reads a great deal is first to require
tho services of a specialist in treatment
of tho eye. Such is not the case. 1 have
found that the greatest sufferers with
eye troubles are those who are compelled
to use that valuable member in an un
natural position. For example, take the
dentist. In examining a patient's teeth
he cannot look straight ahead, but does
the most of his work under a great strain,
with the head in an unnatural position
and the eyes twisted so greatly that there
is a constant strain upon them. In read
ing we are taught that when the eye
aches it is time to stop. That the dentist
cannot do. Some of them are very deli
cate on this point, but it is. a fact that
luring my practice I have treated more
dentists than members of any other single
profession. St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
