"Now ten dollars wan a good deal of

" 'Wouldn't a dollar do youV I asked.for
the fellow looked so bad tliat I wanted
to do something for him, but I knew
that I should never boo my money again.
" 'No,' he said doggedly, 'it won't. I
want to go to Denver. I am about crazy
with pain and I want to get there and
see if I can't find some relief. I haven't
a cent in the world.' (There were a good
many men in that little town who were
in the same predicament.)
" 'But I can't spare ten dollars,' I an
swered. 'I need it.'
" 'You don't need it so much as I do,
he said fiercel3 'Lend it to me. I'll
pay it back to you. Give me your name
and address. I'll find you if I live.'
"Well, I gave him the ten dollars. I
told him that he need not worry about
paying it back. I expected to get out of
my troubles some day and then I should
not feel the need of it.
" 'No,' he said. 'I won't touch it on
any other condition. I want to pay
it back with interest 12 per cent, a
year.' (Money was worth something
"So I wrote out my name for him,
giving him as my permanent address the
home of my family in the east. The
next day he went to Denver. Shortly
afterward I climbed into a saddle and
rode away to 'punch cows.' I punched
them with varying success all over the
Colorado grazing fields for nine years.
Having had enough of cattle raising by
that time and my ideas of great fortunes
having been considerably modified, I
sold out my cattle and came back.
"Of course, after the first few months
following my loan of ten dollars to the
cripple, he never came into my thoughts,
though there were times when that ten
dollars would have been a good friend,
but I completely forgot about it. I had
been east for three years, had married
and was the proud father of the two
handsomest children in New York, when
a letter was forwarded to me from my
father's home in Massachusetts. It was
from the cripple. In it was a postoffice
order for my ten dollars and interest on
it for twelve years, at 1 per cent, a month.
There was no word in the letter except
thanks for my kindness and the assur
ance that he was now 'doing pretty well
"I call that man a gentleman and 1
told him so when I wrote him, and I
also told him something in the letter
which I hoped would please him that
on that day I had made the first bank
deiosit for my baby son, and that the
amount was 2-1.40, his loan aad the in
terest, and that though the interest for
the boy would not be anything like 12
per cent., the deposit ought to biing him
good luck. That's all there is to this
story." New York Tribune.
- A Faithful Car Ilorse.
A queer and intelligent Norwich ani
mal is the Franklin street hill horse,
belonging to the Norwich Ilorse Rail
way company. For several years she
has done duty on the hill, and knows
quite as much about the business of
running horse cars as .any other em
ployee. She has no driver. After break
fast she trudges up to her station at the
foot of the Franklin street hill alone,
and when a loaded car comes to climb
the steep grade voluntarily takes her
place in front of it and helps to drag it
half a mile to Rockwell street. At
that point the driver relieves the hill
horse, and she goes leisurely back to
the bottom of the hill. Sometimes she
goes clear down to Franklin square,
where the cars are started, and exceeds
her duty by helping the other horses
along the route before the hill is
reached. Connecticut Cor. New York
W hen Pus Is Dangerous.
Pus is at first healthy. By its forma
tion nature seeks to check or cure in
flammation; but if the pus cannot find a
free vent it soon becomes septic, when
no medicine offers any hope, and even a
surgical operation but little. The time
for an operation is before the pus le
comes septic generally on the second
or third day. Youth's Companion.
Why a Steamer Vibrates in Calm tVater.
Mr. Yarrow says that the canse of
vibration in screw vessels when running

well immersed is mainly due to the
forces produced by the unbalanced mov

tons, piston rods, valves, gear, etc.

The Eyre of Greek Statues.
Profepsor Ernst Curtius, the famous
Greek scholar and archaeologist of tho
University of Berlin, announced a few
months ago that lie had discovered that
the Greek sculptors always made the
eyes of men fuller and rounder than
those of women. Tho alleged discovery
was considered important, as it was be
lieved that it would lead to a projx r
classification of many of the unidenti
fied heads of Greek statues. Thohoj -however,
seem to have lieen premature
despite tho fact that Cnrtius, who h;.
been called "Tho Modern Greek." f.i
Dr. ( j reef, of Berlin, in a recent lec
ture delivered before tho Prussian Acad
emy of Science, declared that Cnrtius
conclusions were wrong, as ho had found
flat, narrow eyes those of women, ac cording
to Cnrtius in tho heads of
Greek statues of men. He had also
measured plastic representations of worn
en with largo, full eyes. In nature. !;
added, there was no difference bet wen.
tjo eyes of men and women. lie h;
examined recently in Berlin the eyes el
a hundred memliers of each sex am:
had found that they were the same in
thape, size and form. He thus upheld
the theories of Zinn and Sommeiling
that the Greek sculptors who gave a
greater fullness to tho eyes of men than
to those of women did not follow the
conditions of nature. New York Trib
une. Plenty of Game In Maine.
There has not been a year for some
time 'when game was as plenty and
when so little game has been killed
and destroyed as during the past win
ter. One reason is that the snow in
many localities has not been deep, and
at the same time it has been hard, hold
ing up tlie deer and caribou and giving
them a chance to protect themselves by
flight. Another reason is that the
guides and hunters have learned that it
is for their interest to leave the game
alone, especially during the deep snows.
I have made it a point to see many of
ihem in the early part of the winter,
and tried to make them understand that
it is for their interest for us to keep a
good stock of fish and game, as they
would get more business during the
The most of the game that has been
killed the past winter has been killed in
the back settlements, hunters using
dogs to catch deer. There has been a
story of ninety moose killed near our

have been within a day's walk of the
township this winter and I did not learn
of any such business. In fact there are
not moose enough in that locality. It is

Beekeepers and the Government.
Foreign bees without pedigrees may
be admitted to the United States free of
duty. The secretary of the treasury has
so decided. Until the last tariff bill was
passed bees from abroad came in gratis,
as "animals imported for breeding pur
poses." The McKinley law declared
that this ruling should only apply to an
imals "regularly entered in recognized
herd books." Accordingly, bees were
assessed 20 per cent, ad valorem, be
cause they had no pedigrees. The bee
keepers protested and carried their
Some time ago the postoffice department
declared that bees were "unmailable,"
on the ground that they would be likely
to sting people if they got loose. The
beekeepers secured the recall of this reg
ulation, by proving that the packages
employed could not be broken. Wash

Little Fear of Indian Troubles.
A gentleman at Rosebud agency writes
that the reports of dissatisfaction among
the Indians there have been greatly ex
aggerated. Since his arrival there two
weeks ago he has traveled quite exten
sively through the various Indian camps
and thinks the Indians never exhibited
a more peaceful frame of mind than at
present. Never did they take hold of
work more readily or more extensively
and never did they take more interest in
the care of their stock than the past
winter, as can plainly be seen by the
condition of horses and cattle this spring.
So far as dissatisfaction with rations is
concerned, if there is any such, the white
employees hear nothing of it. Cor. Min

They Think, and as a Kf-eult Tliey
Kor-v Away from the Knot of Ifjnirn.
It is an oft repeated remark that New
York is the finest place in tho republic
to live in if you are rich. But it is
worse than tho meanest suburb, the
dreariest of western "booin towns." thn
dullebt country village if you are poor.
This is the criticism of tho person who
does not contemplate lifo as a possibil
ityor an agreeable jMssibility without
society, in the narrow sense of tho word;
without the pleasures that come from
money, without tho social standing that
a good bank account gives, without 1
ing able "to keep up with tho proe
sion" of those who are well dressed, well
fed, well situated and well off.
Singularly enough, those who demand
these things who will not accept mar
ried life without them are generally
not well supplied with this world's goods.
People who have been rich all their lives
do not realize what it means to go with
out their luxuries. But people who have
been poor know just the wretchedness
of having to wear patched boots and go
without lunch: of having to walk long
distances, because car fare "mounts up;"
of having to refuse nice invitations, be
cause they have no clothes or no means
of returning proffered civilities. To
these, poverty is a bitter thing, and they
loathe it. Marriage, unless it means
escape from carping cares of this kind,
they eschew as a hopeless evil. Better
endure those trials that we have than
fly to others that we know not of, they
So thinks the everyday, gentlemanly,
good looking, entirely personable young
man of thirty, who draws an income of
from two to four thousand a year, and
is asked out all over because he dances
admirably and is good to look at, and
never does anything gauche. So. also,
thinks the pretty, well bred, well dressed,
moderately bright girl of tweutj--fiv6,
whose father spends six thousand a year
and has five children. Both of these know
just the way they want their lives to go.
Ever since childhood they have associ
ated with companions who have had
more money than they have, and they
know how nice it is to be well off. To
be rich or to remain as we are, that is
their motto. "When we make the great
move," they both think, "we make it to
better ourselves materially, or we don't
make it at all."
They do not want to be millionaires,
bat they do not want to be really pinched
anywhere. Their house must be large
enough and be comfortable. It must be
well fitted up no "sheet by night and
tablecloth by day" for them. There
must be servants enough to run it. This
girl who has always been comfortably
placed, but never luxuriously has no
intention of binding herself down to do
mestic cares, of dusting her own draw
ing room and turning up hems in her
own table, linen. No; all that must be
done for her. She has made her own
dresses and trimmed her own hats all
her girlhood, and she wants, when she
marries, to change all that. Better to
go on doing it in your own home, where
it is all you have to worry over, than to
do it in your husband's, where you
have to keep the house and take care of
children as well.
Thus the young lady reasons and re
jects her suitors with a peculiar and good
humored indifference. She has made
up her mind that she will not many a
man who has a cent under five thousand
a year, and is not above telling this to
the soupirants, who take the hint and
strive to realize the ideal. The young
lady is quite frank. She is not in the
least ashamed of her worldliness or de
sirous of hiding it under a veil of at
tractive coyness. She is not mercenary.
It is not riches that she demands corn
fort, that is all. If she is comfortable
she will continue to be a very nice, at
tractive person, but if she has to scrimp
and struggle and fight over ten cent
pieces, and turn her old clothes, and
have her shoes patched, she will not be
responsible for her temper. She is a
fin de siecle to her finger tips sensibl3
where she might be romantic, practical
where she once would have been impas
sioned a person who is bound to iuska
a success of her life and keep it on the
lines that she regards as tho best.
The young man cf her kind hold3 pre
cisely the same views. Life with a be
loved object sounds very charming, but
it is not to be indulged in unless the in
comes of himself and the beloved object
foot up to from five to six thousand per
annum. The beloved object on three
thousand a year is too expensive a lux
ury. He cannot afford it. What might
have been a courtship dwindles to a
mild friendship. Not infrequently he
tells the lady of his sad predicament and
how impossible a matrimonial alliance
would be on his salary. She condoles
with him and they become friends, for
no violent fires burn in their hearts and
friendship comes quite easily to them.
Marriage would mean a series of sacri
fices that neither is willing to mali3.
They would have to live in a flat in Har
