NEW SIDELIGHT ON HISTORY
Englishman Has Other Than Accepted
Version for Cornwallis' Surren
der at Yorktown.
They were commemoratinr? the sur
render of Cotnwallls at Yorktow n witb
the usual fiery speeches. At the closa
of lh regular program the chairman
n Bounced with a wink to those near
"We are happy to have with ua on
this auspicious occasion a repre
sentative of King Kdward, if not ot
King (JeoiRo. Ladies and gentlemen, I
bejf to present to you Maj. Arthur For
rester of tho First Koyal Dragoons,
who will now say a few words."
The major looked a little surprised
as lie strolled to the front of the plat
form, polished his eyeglass, and begau
with a drawl:
"ft has long been a wonder to me
how Cornwallis, with the pick of tho
lritlsh array, held Yorktown against a
miserable force of militia for only a
lew weeks. Hut, ladies and gentle
men, I've seen your town to-day, and
my wond.r is now that he cared to
hold Bch a forlorn-looking spot for
even one day."
"Shake!" broke In the chairman,
"the drinks are on me."
The Ever Changing Waist Linn.
Consider the mental agility it takes
to keep up with one's waist line. One
goes to bed at night In the sweet as
surance that It will be under the arms
for the next two or three months at
any rate, and awakes to learn from the
headlines in tho morning papers the
waist lino is positively at tho knees.
There Is absolutely no use In prognos
ticating anything about it any longer.
That the waist line occurred at tho
waLt was an axiom accepted as un
questionably as that the earth re
volves on Its axis, but In these days
of liigher criticism it is likely to be
anywhere. It bloweth where It list

Tho othr evening Miss Y., a maiden
lady of uncertain years, suspecting
tho cook wa3 entertaining her beau
downstairs, called Martha and in
quired whether she did not hear soma
one talking with her,
"Oh. no, ma'nin," cried the quick
wilted Martha; "it was only mo sing
ing a psalm."
"Very good," returned Miss Y. sig
nificantly; "you may amuse yourself
with psalms, but let's have no hlms."
Sheer white goods, In fact, any fine
wash goods when new, owe much of
their attractiveness to tho way they
are laundered, this being done in a
manner to enhance their textile beau
ty. Homo laundering would bo equal
ly satisfactory if proper attention was
gitren to starching, the first essential
being good Starch, which has sufficient
strength to stiffen, without thickening
the goods. Try Defiance Starch and
you will bo pleasantly surprised at the
Improved appearance of your work.

At a party over at old Urizintlne's
one night they were talking about the
progress of the world. There were
present all of the wise men of the
community. Medicine was represent
ed by "Doc'' I'eters, horse surgeon:
the law by Anthony Units, Justice of
the peace; sculpture by'Hufe Coodall,
stone quarry man; art by Miss Nancy
Hodge, drawer of a map of the coun
ty; literature by Stephen nine, writer
of for sale notices and epitaphs; the
ministry by Uev. Oustavus Xudgo
and agriculture by Limuel Jucklin. So,
it may be seen, hero was assembled a
goodly twentietli century company,
prepared by experience and stimulat
ed by education to discourse upon any
"The tire revolves faster than the
hub," said the minister, Mr. Nudge,
"and it is but natural that we, uow
on tho outer rim of time, should move
with more accelerated motion than
our forefathers, who were nearer the
center, so to speak. Ah, lirother
There Were Present All the
Jucklin, what changes have taken
place bince wo can remember."
"Yes," replied old I.im, "a good
many. I can recollect when we had
to go or n mornin' to a neighbor's
houso for a chunk of fire. Wa'n't any
Miss Nancy Hodge, elevating her
eyebrows, exclaimed: "For pity
"Yes," said old Lim; "and the
chances were that the feller that was
sent after the chunk of fire would bo
drunk before he got back. Everybody
kept liquor in the house, and if a fel
ler stopped and helloed at the gate
they'd ask him to get down and take a
"In the matter of whisky there has
been great reform and, I may there
fore say, progress," remarked Uev.
Limuel nodded assent. "But," said
he. "the reform has been with man and
not with liquor. The greatest good
that whltky has douo Is to be so mean
that nobody wants It. Hut I can re
member when It was the milk In the
cocoanut of of paradise, I tell you.
In comparison to what it In now, par
son," he added, to soften the remark,
which he was quick to observe had
somewhat disturbed the countenance
"He Ha3 the Progress of the World
of tho preacher, "but, parson, do you
know what has done more toward the
cix Hiring of us all than nny other
Modesty restrained Mr. Nudgo from
mentioning what, in hia opinion, was
the real cause, so he hazarded the
one word "education."
"That's nil very well," suld I.im,
"but there's a shorter way of gelt'n'
at It. I bhould say the -drummer."
The itiitih ler winced as if ho had
suddenly bitten into a sour pickle.
"Yes. i;ir, the man that goes about
and sells gondii," said I.im. "lie has
the progress of tho world buckled up
in his Ki'.mplo case. He . tho circuit
rider of tr.ulc. Ho not only brings
what the people already want, but
teache3 them to need things; and the
man that t-hows us what we need
moves forward a good many degrees.
Take our town over here. Tor more
than fifty years the churches had been
in full blatt pardon the expression
and the schools bad been In opera
tion; and yet the hotels were so bad
that a hungry dog might bo excused
for giving it the goby. Why, whit
leather was as tender as a lamb's
tongue compared with the beefsteak.
The biscuits were Just about as diges
tible as door knobs. The r.alt pork
might properly have been labeled 'tho
enemy of mankind.' The butter looked
as It it had been mado of the milk of
a cow tbut had Jusl seen a ghost.
What's the name of that place where
they used tn torture folk the Iihiu'.kI
tion? Ye?. Why, if a man had been
snatched out of the Inquisition and
put into that hotel he would have
complr.lncd of tlx. change. And the
stores around the square. Hero pig
pens, ornamented by a dry goods box
outside. Such was tho stato of affairs
found by the drummer when he came
along. Mind you, no other reform had
been able to touch it; and why? He
'cause the people didn't know nny bet
ter. Hut the drummer showed them
that the other parts of the worl6
wouldn't live that way."
"Hut you must agree," Mr. Nudge
Interposed, "that our young men have
been inspired with a spirit of unrest."
"Yes, I acknowledge that." said I.lin.
"And a spirit of unrest Is the first step
toward advancement. The young fel
lers saw that they needed a better, a
mote practical education, and they set
about to get it. If there is a better
teacher than experience it is example.
Wise Men of the Community.
Envy as generally understood may be
a bad thing, but it Is active envy that
makes the world move forward. The
drummer brought stories with him.
They illustrated life. A community
that has only old stories lives in the
past. The drummer's new storic3
quickened tho intellect. They made
thr mind Jump. Trade"
"Ah." Mr. Nudge broke in. "I thank
you for the timely Introduction of that
well-worn word. You would place
trade above everything."
"Well, I wouldn't place it below
everything. Trade is the exchange of
materialized ideas. It is the circulat
ing blood of a nation. Art is a sort of
fever and marks disease. Literature
Is a prescription, and if it don't help
lifo fails to do It nny good. I want
to tell you. a drummer first set mo to
readin'. Of course I knew what books
were. Hut I thought that when a man
got along well In life he ought to think
of everything except books. They
were for boys nad girls. Hut this
drummer that stayed all night at my
houso said that tho greatest books
had been written by old men. There
fore they ought to be read by old men
tie opened up a new Tlew of lifo, lie
showed me that as long as a man
lived and kept his health he could
develop and expand. Ho left a book

with me, and It wa'n't long before 1
discovered that 1 had Just begun tc
live. This man Fold things and in
meeting men came away from there
with a better knowledge of human na
ture. Knowing so much of tho weak
nes;i of man, he could better ndmlrc
his strength or pardon his faults."
"Hut you are forgetting tho Cospel,'
said Mr. Xude.
"On. no. The drummer Is a good ex
empliiU ation of the CJufpol. IJc goes
Into till the world. The Cospel was
never coiun'.anded to stand still. It it
a running stream. Stnt;n:int water
breed peMlli rice The Saviour ol
man was the. most liberal man that
ever lived. He bad no home. Tho
drummer is liberal because bis ho;at
Is the world. He meets a local preju
dice and turns it into a national liber
nlity. He demands a placo where he
may spend his leisure hours, and pub
lie libraries mnrk his course. Tho un
rent you spe;.-!; f has stimulated trav
el, and travel is tho picture that goes
in tho bonk of education. The drum
mer must b ttetlvo nnd therefore he
must be sober, lib achievement ovct
drunken competition Is the greatest,
the most vivid temperanco lecture
ever delivered. It makes sobriety a
business rather than a mere Inactive
virtue. What are you fetchin' on Ikto,
madam? Lemonade? Wo'll drink it

The firrt thought in painting bhould,
of course, be durability and dura
bility means simply pure paint prop
erly applied, l'ure paint is pure
white lead and linseed oil (with or
without tinting material).
Some years ngo the paint buyer was
likely to get adulterated or counter
feit white lead if bo was not fumiliar
with brands. To-day ho may buy
with perfect safety if be only makes
sure that tho Dutch Hoy Fainter
trademark is on the packages of
white lead that ho buys. This trade
mark was adopted by National Lead
Company to distinguish tho pure
white lead made by them from tho
worthless adulterated and fake goods.

Marriage and Meanness.
Some years ago there lived In Atch
ison a young woman noted for her
good works and gentleness. She was
always helping' tho jwor and was pa
tient and kind nnd universally ad
mired. Sho married a fairly good man
and abused him within three months.
She had been good and patient for
years, but a husband was too much
for her; she had never been crops to
any one until ?dio was cross to her
husband. There Is something about
marriage that stirs up bidden depths
of mennnoss on both tides. Atchison
