FRANKLIN C. HAMER.
Possessing the necessary qualifications
to fill the state treasurer's office satis
factorily, Franklin C. Hamer, native of
Nebraska, and for twenty years promin

banking business, expects to realize a
laudable ambition by seating himself in

Important Thing to Know.
It Is easy to understand why the na
tion is willing that millions be spent
on a weather bureau. If we can only
foretell through weather experts,
goose bone prophets, corn husk prog
nostlcators or in any other way just
what the weather will be from day
to day, living will be made a great
deal easier for us all. We can get the
bay in out of that thunderstorm or
bold up that shipment of perishable
stuff that a solid freeze and zero
weather will utterly ruin.

The colt tossed her head impatient
ly as her driver suddenly drew rein.
"Want a ride, Nan?" called the
young fellow to the girl on the cool
porch. "You'll have to hurry; she
"Nan, Nan," called her mother fran
tically from the door, "do not ride
after that colt You will all be killed!"
But the girl sprang lightly into the
low buggy, not waiting to be assist
ed, and with a wave of her hand, was
disappearing down the shady country
"Isn't she a darling?" cried Nan ea
gerly. "Such lines, such a coat, such
color. Isn't this a great deal of style
for a poor young country doctor who
isn't sure of ev" his office rent? Do
not try to make me believe you have
taken her for debt!"
Young Dr. Grey laughed happily.
"No, my dear, I did not take her on
a debt although I did get her for a
song. She has been mismanaged. She
has a trifling fault that is sometimes
designated by the term 'balky.' But
it is an ugly word, and I refuse to
use it in connection with such a per
"But a balky horse for a doctor!
Fred, you might better not have
"Wait and see, Miss Doubtful. She
is young. She may get over her fault
with good handling. And if she does,
there isn't a horse in this town that
can come up with her. Want to see
"Oh, yes!" said Nan, shivering
There was a fine straight stretch of
smooth road ahead. The slender bay
horse seemed not to touch her feet to
"Isn't that going some?" asked th
young man complacently as he drew
her to a walk.
"Isn't it worth something to have a
horse like that when some one has
taken the wrong medicine, or some
other accident has uccurred?"
"Indeed yes if she happens to be
in good humor."
"At least she has been nothing but
pleasant since I have had her. And
even if she refuses to go some day,
she will be very attractive to look
upon while I wait."
Nan laughed derisively. "Still, I do
not know that I can blame you," sh
admitted presently. "I'm in love with
her myself. What is her name?"
"Nancy Ann, to be sure."
"What?" cried Nan so sharply that
her namesake flung up her head ner
vously. "Of course I named her for my
girl," declared Grey stoutly.
"But you know I hate my name at
its best and Nancy Ann! I will not
have it!" she cried stormily. "Every
one will make fun."
"I love your name, Nan, dear. And,"
he added with a smile, "I think it es
pecially appropriate to name her for
you. She certainly is as beautiful as
the name deserves after your bearing
it And I'm not sure she doesn't ex
hibit some similarity of character."
Nan sat in displeased silence.
"She has learned her name, too; I
certainly cannot change it now, dear."
"You will change it if you care for
me," declared the girl.
"That is the very reason why I can
not. Nan. Be reasonable, darling."
Again there was no sound but the
light tap of Nancy Ann's hoofs upon
the soft road. -
When Dr. Grey held out his hand
in farewell at her gate, the girl
pressed her ring into his palm.
"You surely do not mean this?" he
"Since my desires have no weight
with you, I certainly do mean it!" she
flashed as she darted Into the house.
Fred Grey drove away alone. "Dear
little girl," he said as he placed the
ring in his pocket "They are a good
deal alike, for a fact"
The weeks that followed were long
ones to Nan Thompson.
Dr. Grey drove his new horse daily,
attended his few patients, and was
studiously polite to Nan when chance
threw them together.
"He doesn't care; he doesn't care,"
she thought over and over. "I shall
not care either!"
The few attempts he made to call
upon her were unsuccessful.
"Certainly I will ride home with
Dr. Grey rather than put you to the
trouble of taking me," declared Nan
one evening after she had spent the
day at her uncle's farm.
Fred Grey with his light-stepping
Nancy Ann had very opportunely driv-
"Scoundrel, let us pass!" he shout
ed, urging his horse fcrv. .rd.
His rein was seized, his horse turn
ed and given- a slap that sent it tier
ing down hill, and then the man wit!
the big black eyes raised his hat
again and quietly said:
"Take the other road, please."
Miss Dorris gave him one awful
look, gritted her teeth and retreated.
She was defeated, but only for the
time. The man's scalp should dangle
at her belt ere many more suns had
risen. Mr. Percy was waiting at the
foot of the hill, and as the girl reach
ed him he began:
"I say, now "
"Say nothing." she snapped.
"But, you know "
"I know you went off as mild as &
lamb, and I shan't need your protec
tion on any future occasions!"
' Mr. Percy's ancestors had been
weighed, in the balance and found 14
ounces to the pound. The ride was cut
short, and Miss Dorris sat down in
her shady bower to think of the man
who had turned her back. Oh, how
she hated him! Did she? Well, he
had made her obey him, but he had
nice eyes. He had been firm, but he
was almost handsome. The same
voice that had commanded also struck
her ears pleasantly. He wasn't so
bad after all, but he had bossed when
he might have coaxed. That man
must be taught a lesson.
Miss Dorris said nothing to her fa
ther or mother, or to the cook or
gardener. She didn't even record it
in her diary that she had determined
to do a desperate thing on the mor
row. At ten o'clock in the forenoon
she mounted her horse and cantered
away for Bull hill. Same signs of
"Dangerous! Blasting!" The same la
lorsrs at the first turn sought to turn
her back. She gave them a look of
scorn and passed on, but she heard
them shouting after her. There was
no one at the second turn, but as she
drew rein a man came running down
the hill, waving his cap and shouting.
It was the man of the big black
eyes and the firm mouth. He intended
to head her off again. The light ol
battle shone in the girl's eyes.
"For heaven's sate, ride for your
life!" shouted the man.
Miss Dorris didn't make a move.
"There's a blast to be fired right
where you are!"
Still no move.
The man reached her, dragged her
from her horse, and though she
; fought and struggled he carried her
50 feet up the hill. Then came a blast
'that tore a thousand cart-loads oi
irocks and dirt loose. For three min
utes the sky seemed to rain missiles
and was darkened with smoke, and
girl had been thrown down by the
'concussion. He was the first up, and
as he extended his hand to help her
"I trust you are not hurt yourself,
ibut look down there!"
"Blown to fragments!"
"And I I " " " "
"You would have been. I even think
you ought to have got a broken arm
,for your obstinacy!"
"If you were three or four years
.younger I'd say you ought to have
'your ears boxed."
' "Sir, don't talk to me like that. Oh,
jyou are bleeding! Your head is cut
open! You you "
They sat down on a rock he be
cause of a faintness she because she
: wanted to weep. She did weep. She
said she was a perverse, obstinate
girl.' She said she ought to have been
hurt, too. She said; and he said
and -the trembling men that came
down the hill to look for the remains
of Bently Davis, engineer, found the
'two holding hands. Only the other
day the father said to the mother:
"Well, I'm amaz?U at the way Dor
ris is getting over her plg-headedness.
Do you think that she and Mr
"Jacob, attend to your pipe and

The expression "run amuck" Is the
Anglicized form of a term used in
-some parts of the orient to describe
a form of homicidal mania, accompan
ied by a frenzied plunge in any and
every direction. In the countries
where the malady originated the word
applied to it was "amok." The cor
rupted form of it is now applied in a
score of ways without much war
rant In Malaca, Slam, Java, and adjacent
regions the mental state which causes
amok is well defined and much dread
ed. It is attributed almost invariably
to excessive drinking of stimulants.
The victim first turns morose, gener
ally remaining In this state for sev
eral days. Then he is suddenly seized
with the mania for slaughter and starts
on his mad run with the first weapon
he can reach.
Extra precautions against these mad
ravages are taken in some of the
more civilized places, especially Ba
tavla. There the police are armed
with what is called a catch-fork. The
Instant the victim of amok starts on
his mad dash he finds himself hooked
by the minion of the law and held
firmly the length of this odd human
spear. He can barm himself, but that
Is the limit of his insane power.
The elephant never falls to excite
wonder in the person who beholds
him for the first time. A writer in the
Christian Register quotes the remark
of a 'small boy who was visiting a
menagerie. "O papa," he exclaimed,
as they passed before the elephant

in her mouth, eating hay with her
