CONVERSION BV Ci II A M A I HON K.
In the conver-ion of Marsh-ill Oier
Waggoner of Toledo the late Robert
G. Ingersoll's following loes a com
rade and mechanism scores a signal
triumph. For years Mr. Waggoner
has been one of the characters of the
Ohio city and one of tho most pro
nounced and consistent aguostics in
the west, says tho Times-Herald. His
collection of agnostic and atheistic
literature is cons:dered one of the
most complete in the country, yet, as
proof of the genuineness of his change
of heart, he will burn thee b -oks be
fore the door of oue of Toledo's
churches in a few days.
Convinced a short time ago that his
views on matters religious were not
so comforting as of yore, that he held
them less tenaciously, Mr. Waggoner,
true to his character of honesty, set
about to more carefully study the ar
guments advanced by believers in the
Christian religion. He arranged a
complete church service hymns, ser
mon, prayers, all but the collection
on the cylinder of a gramaphono.
Then he wound the machine up, set it
going and seriously pondered all it
said and sung to him. He ended his
unique service with "Hock of Age3,"
and it was while listening to this
hymn, which has carried comfort to
countless thousands, that, as he puts
it, "light came to me, and with it a
consciousness that my sins had been
Believing now what he has hereto
fore for the seventy-two years of his
life systematically scoffed at, Mr.
Waggoner will consign his atheistic
library to flames before the door of a
church, thus following the example of
Martin Luther in the seventeenth
century. Could he give oeuer prooi
of his conversion than this? If
agnostic and atheistic writings have
misled him for over three score years.
can he be censured for wishing to dis
pose of them in such a way that they
will do him no further harm or Jail
into the hands of other men? It can
not be said that his con version is due
to emotionalism, or the influence of
some enthusiastic evangel. Nothing
can be less emotional thnn a piece of
machinery. The scienti fic toy would
seem to have a serious mission to ful
Thk Journal almost fell over itself

"That pink shirt waist story about
Richard Harding Davis is only one
among others," said a inemLer of a
New York publishing firm who fell
in from the big town yesterday. "Davis
struck a place called Pomona, Cal., a
few years ago, and while there he met
a clever chap who has been writing
stories about the killers and other bad
men of the Southwest for a New York
paper for several years past. The writ
er of the bad-man stories happened to
be a modest and unassuming citizen,
somewhat undersized, and Harding
said to him, after being introduced:
" 'Why, I expected to find the writer
of those terrific stories a raw-boned
giant, with a bowie-knife between hl3
teeth, a whole arsenal of small arms,
long hair, and all that sort of thing,
you know.' 'That so?' responded the
writer of ad-mau narratives. 'I had
some similarly erroneous idea3 about
you. I pictured you as wearing a
Psyche knot.' "
The Chinaman's Insurance.
A childlike faith in the arithmetic
confounds all the logic of the schools.
This was the experience of a Pitt3
burg life-insurance agent who wrote a
policy on the life of a Chinaman the
first ever written for a man of that
race in Pittsburg. How the insurance
man did it he alone knows. The China
man had no very clear idea. He only
understood that - if he paid the pre
miums promptly he would be entitled
to five thousand dollars at some future
time. He began bothering the
agent for the money after a couple of
weeks had passed, and the agent tried
to explain to him that he would have
to die before any one could get it. Then
the Chinaman fell down a cellarway
on Grant street and was badly hurt.
His friends tried to attend to him
without calling in a doctor. When
they did call in one, two days later, the
doctor was angry. "Why didn't you
call me sooner?" he asked. "This man
is half dead now." Next day the in
jured man's brother was at the insur
ance office with a claim for twenty
five hundred dollars. "You're not enti
tled to anything on this," said the in
surance man, "until the man is dead."
"Doctor say him half dead," answered
the brother. "Why he no get half?"

figures by 1,000. The enemy sent
heavy volleys against the whole Amer-J

inherited taint in tho blood. S. S. S.

enough to reach Scrofula; it forces out
every trace of tho disease, and cures
the worst cases.
