"Kind Lady" Was Not the Ety Mark

Hoped to Tind.
Viary Willie left the dustry .coun-t-y

old fashioned flowers. A tidy aid
motherly-ii-oklng wej::an, who li;oko.l
as If sin? might be "easy fruit," sat on
a vine-clad 111 tie porch homniiiig a
sheet. She teemed to be the vm
I erson on the premises and Weary
Willie fancied that she looked a bit
scared. It was because cf this that
there was a certain note of authority
In his voice whau he said: '
"I want to git something to 'tat.
kind lady, and I"
The "kind lady" gave her head a
I little toss and Interrupted him by sa
ling: "You do. eh' Well, I can tell
you, my wandering friend, that' you
Just have run afoul of the wrong 'kind
lady' when you struck me, an' if you
think that I am a bit scared of you or
of any of your traripiu' tribe you are
most beautifully le t, an' so I let you
know, for the tran.u never yet drtw
the breath o' life that I was scared ot

that you will be if you so much as

Wade Windham and Bert Thrasher
went to Louisville to help along the
celebration, and also to look after the
distribution of some campaign cards.
Bert complained of seasickness to
much that it was necessary to turn
him over to the tender mercies of the
Quaker Medicine Company, which hap
pened to be in town. Thus relieved of
the handicap, Wade finished up his job
in record time.

Town, Declare They Saw Reptile
In the Pacifc.
Guy Griffith. Jarres Harvey and i
thn-e ether foliermeu who were out in :
the Iur-cft Rt-ta, report th.-.t when 18 I
.T.ilt a off the coast U.ey sighted a soa '
serpent 10 feet long, with a brown
head as big arouud as a small barrel
and i yes as large us a man's Est. The
i serpent is said to have moved Its head
from side to side as a snake do?3. and
i had a bis dorsal fin 15 Ret back of
. the head.
I The fishermen say the same monster
has been reported within the last few
month near the Fhlllwdnes and
long the northern coast of this coun
try! They furthermore aver that a heavy
sinker, which one of the five threw at
the sea serpent as the boat was pull
ing away from the unsafs neighbor
hood, was caught in the creature's
mouth and spit back with such force
as to make a deep dent in the fish box
"Never saw such a spitter," said
one of the men; "Just like a young
cannon." Lons Beach is a "dry" town.

Paper and Canvas.
In a book entitled "Stories of the
English Artists," R. Davies and C.
Hunt tell an interesting anecdote of
Turner, the great landscape painter,
He disliked to part with his pictures,
and when he sold one, Invariably wore
a look of dejection and oppression. If
a friend asked him what was the mat
ter, he would scornfully explain: "I ve
lost one of my children this week."
Once a rich Birmingham manufac
turer, Glllott by name, Introduced him
self to the painter, and slated that he
had come to buy.
"Don't want to sell," or gome such
laconic rebuff, with the answer.
The manufacturer then drew from
his pocket a bundle of bank-notes,,
about 5,000 worth.
"Mere paper," observed Turner, with
griiu humor, a little softened, however,
and evidently enjoying bis Joke.
"To be bartered for mere canvas,"
replied Glllott, waving his hand at the
"Building of Carthago" and it3 com
This tone of cool depreciation
seemed to have a happy effect, and
finally Glllott departed with some
5,000 worth of Turner's plcturae.
Cleanliness of Amsterdam.
Amsterdam enjoys an enviable repu
tation for its cleanness. .Owen Felt
ham, who visited Holland In the sev
enteenth century, was particularly im
pressed by tho spotles3ness of its
itreets and houses. "Whatsoever their
estates be," he writes, "their houses
must be fair. Therefore from Amster
dam they have baulsht seacole, lost It
oyle their buildings. Every door
ieema studded with diamonds. The
nails and hinges hold a constant
Drlghtnesse, as it rust there was not
i quality Incident to Iron. : Their
houses they keep cleaner than their
bodies; their bodies than their souls,
Coe to one, you shall find the and
'.rons shut up in network, m a, sec

HAVE PROPER SELF-RESPECT.
One of the Greatest Mistakes Possible
to Make Is That of Holding
Oneself Too Cheap.
Do not hold yourself too cheap. If
you do not think well of yourself oth
ers are not likely to i think much of
you. You are usually' taksn at your
own value. By this is cot meant a
foolish self-conceit, but a proper self
rrspect. Have a regard for the esteem of
those whose opinion is worth having.
No one can be admired by all. He
who has no enemies may doubt wheth
er he has real friends. Try to win
the regard of the gocd and the wise;
If the foolish take offense pas3 It by.
Think too well of yourself to stoop
to anything coarse, mean or untrue.
However humble your station In life
ttay be, you may think yourself wor
thy only of that which is good an')
true. To be genuine puts you on a
hlch level. Whatever your purse, you
may be rich in character. Think your
self worthy of the best to which you
can attain. Aim for the highest you
see, and should you fall to reach it,
you will still be higher than if your
aim had been low.

Town of Many Vicissitudes.1
Cattaro, the Austrian sea gate of
Montenegro, which was recently be
leved to be threatened by Prince Nich
olas' guns, wai held by Montenegro
jnce for a time. Montenegro ac
4ulred it in 1813 with the aid of a Brit
ish squadron. Any inhabitant of Cat
taro who waa contemporary with tho
rise and fall of Napoleon must often
nave bad to pause and think what
country he belonged to. For, having
been Venetian for centuries, Cattaro
became Austrian by the treaty . of
Campo Formlo, and Italian in 1805 by
the peace of Pressburg. It was ab
sorbed In the Froncn empire in 1810,
and wrested from It lo 1813, and
finally, In 1814, Russia compelled Mon
tenegro to give it up to Austria,

Form Colonies for Tramps.
Perhaps most tramps have no de
sire to work, preferring to cling to
their habits of shlftlessness. but there
are doubtless many men In the ranks
who would settle down to the serious
task of making monejr and improving
their condition tf they had the proper
training. The latter may and prob
ably will, be rescued by a term on the
"farm," but the veteran who has
walked rails when no freights were
available; who ha3 shied at anything
savoring of labor; who haa begged or
stolen what food be has obtained, can
not be reformed. He will go on until
the end in his old way. a scourge to
humanity and a disgrace to civiliza
tion. Usefulness wa3 never and can
never be for him. To the extent of
the number constituting this class the
farm colony will be a failure.
