JEWELER HAD BEEN ANXIOUS
Could Think of But One Reason for
George Ade's Seeming Desertion
George Ade was one of the princi
pal speakers at a recent banquet of
the Illinois Manufacturers' associa
tion. "When I was a cub reporter,",
lie confessed, "struggling along on a
minute salary, I had just one asset in
life which enabled me to 'tide over'
that, period in every week when pov
erty seemed to be staring me in the
face.' This consisted of a handsome
gold watch, a keepsake of college
days in Indiana. Tuesday was pay
day at the newspaper office. By Fri
day I would be 'broke,' and I would
tote the watch over to the pawnshop
to a man who now conducts a hand
some Jewelry shop on State street.
On the watch I obtained five dollars,
and by administering my affairs care
fully I managed to worry through un
til pay-day. Then when I had re
ceived my small salary I would hurry
to the pawnbroker's and release my
watch. Finally, after this had gone
along for many months, I received a
raise In pay. It was enough to re
lease me from the necessity of pawn
ing my watch regularly. One after
noon, about ten years afterward, I
was accosted In State street by a
man. I recognized my old pawnbrok
er friend, now a prosperous jeweler.
'What's the matter, George?" were his
first words. 'Did you lose that

"Owing to the drain pipe In the
kitchen sink becoming clogged with
grease, water would not run through
it," said Claude Cooper, ccmedian at
the Warburton theater, Yonkers. "so
the landlady of our boarding house
called a plumber. He repaired ttie
damage in less than twenty minutes
after he arrived. Along about the
first of the month he sent in his bill
no, ho brought it himself. The land
lady looked at the items, the total of
which was $5.15. Amazed at the size
of tho charge, she became sarcastic.
"Haven't you forgotten something,
Mr. Plumber?' she said, with a sneer.
"The man took the bill and careful
ly read the various items. 'Upon my
word,' he exclaimed, 'I believe 1 have,
lady,' and he made the following addl
ional entry: To one and one-half
hours time and trolley fares, going to
shop and getting piece of lead pipe,
$1.05.' Thank you, lady. That makes
the total ?6.20.' "
"Did the woman pay the money?"
inquired Ramsey Wallace.
"Do the robins nest in January? No.
the woman hung up the bill, and it is
still hanging. That was two years
ago." N. Y. Press.
Wife, at the Breakfast Table
Henry dear, mother writes that she is
coming down to visit us for a week.
Henry (enthusiastically) Bully! It
seems an age since she's been down to
eee us and I've just been thinking we
ought to have her come But can't
she stay more than a week? There
are a lot of good shows and things
she'd enjoy and besides I want to
play a good long series of chess with
her and a week will hardly start us.
Write her we want her fcr a month.
Wife I'll try to get her for that
long, Henry, but you know she can
only get away from heme once in a
great while for a few days, and she's
got to divide up her time between
three daughters. Arthur and his wife
and Mary and Charlie would be really
angry : if she didn't spend as much
time with" them as with us.
Henry Well, do your best. Honest
ly,' Mary, your mother is a jolly good
fellow, as I've told you before, and
we can't have too much of her.
Expedition Across Greenland.
The Swiss Society of Naturalists is
raising funds to enable Dr. A. de
Quervaln to undertake a ' journey
across the inland ice of Greenland,
from Disco bay, on the west eoast, to
Angamagsalik, the only - inhabited
place on the east coast. The expedi
tion expects to leave Europe on the
steamer Hans Egede April 1, 1912, and
to start eastward from Disco bay the
middle of June. It is expected that
four weeks will be required for the
Journey, but provisions for twice that
time will be carried. Two members of
the expedition are to remain on the
west coast of Greenland until the
spring of 1913 to carry on glaciological
and aerological studies the latter in
connection with similar observations
that are to be made at the same time
on the east coast of Greenland, in Ice
land, and la Spitzbergen.

TOUCHED HUGO'S KIND HEART
Great Frenchman Aided Beggar With
Verse of Much More Worth
A Frenchman, writing recently upon
"The Mendicants of Paris,'" recalls a
pretty anecdote of Victor Hugo and a
blind beggar. The beggar was an old
soldier, very feeble and quite sight
less, who was led every day by his
little granddaughter to a certain
street corner, where he waited pa
tiently for such scanty alms as the
hurrying public might drop into a
small box that hung from his neck.
One day a group of gentlemen halt
ed near him, chatting, and he heard
the name by which they called the
one who lingered longest. Reaching
forward as he, too, was about to go,
he caught him by the coat.
What do you want, my good man?"
asked the gentleman. "I have already
given you two sous."
"Yes, monsieur, and I have thanked
you," replied the veteran. "It Is some
thing else that I want."
"What Is it?"
"You shall have them," said the gen
tleman; and he kept his word. The
next day the blind soldier bore on his
breast a placard with a stanza to
which was appended the name of Vic
tor Hugo; and the arms In the box
were quintupled. The lines may be

NOT ON SECURE FOUNDATION
Engineer Explains Why Some Build
ings Shake When Particularly
Heavy Wagon Goes By.
"What makes a building shake as if
it had the ague every time a truck
with a twenty-ton girder rumbles by?"
an engineer was asked.
"Only the buildings whose founda
tions do not go down to bed rock
shake," he replied. "The occupants
of the building that rests on rock
never know when a heavy load passes
it. The man in tie building whose
foundations go down just a few feet
below the cellar floor, and stop in
the subsoil, often imagines he is in
the center of an earthquake.
"When the wagon bearing the beam
goes traveling along it bumps over
the inequalities of the street with tre
mendous force, and this imparts wave
motions to the soil, which in turn
transfer the vibrations to the old
style foundations, which sway and
shake and tremble. The foundations
whose piers rest on bed rock are not
affected. A twenty-ton beam, as It
slips from one paving stone to an
other, imparts a force to the ground
that may be likened to a constant
bombardment, but because the wave
of motion proceeds in constantly
Tvidening circles, and hence in con
stantly diminishing force distributed
all over the foundation, no. harm re
sults. If the force were all driven at
one point the effect would be like
that of a projectile from a battle
ship." Clever Birds.
Record has recently been made of a
canary bird that displays almost hu
man intelligence. The bird in ques
tion acts as guard over a sleeping
child, singing shrilly at any sign oi
danger. The bird is allowed the free
dom of the house and never showa
any desire to escape into the free air.
At night it will perch itself on the
baby's cradle and such seems to be
its liking for the child that if anyone
approaches to disturb its slumber, it

Rush Hour in Indianapolis.
The "Sardine Special" on the Irv
ington street car line last night car
ried 141 passengers, or rather the
conductor on the special collected 141
fares. There were some that he did
not get because the special was at
the belt before the conductor , could
be hoisted through the . various de
partments of the car. '
' There were ' thirty-five : on the rear
platform, figured on a cubic capacity
basis. There was no other way tc
estimate it, as legs, bodies and heads
were wedged to such a degree that
it was practically impossible to tell

capacity of the car is forty-one, so

RIGHT CHILDHOOD IS MODEST
Weil-Bred Youngster Does Not Think.
That It Knows Everything,
The first character of right child
hood is that it is modest. . A well
bred child does not think it can teach
its parents, or ttat it knows every
thing. It may think its father and
mother know everything perhaps
that all grown-up people know every
thing; very certainly it is sure that
it does not. And it is always asking
questions, and wanting to know more.
Well, that is the flrst character of a
good and wise man at his work. , To
know that he knows very little; to
perceive that there are many above
him wiser than he, and to be always
asking' questions, wanting to learn,
not to teach. No one ever teaches
well who wants to teach, or governs
well who wants to govern; it is an
old saying (Plato's, but I know not
if his, first), and as wise as old.
Then, the second character of right
childhood Is to be faithful. Perceiv
ing that its father knows best what
is good for it, and having found al
ways, when it has tried its own way
against his, that he was right and it
was wrong, a noble child trusts him
at last wholly, gives him its hand,
and will walk blindfold with him. if
he bids it. And that Is the true char
acter of all good men also, as obe
dient workers, or soldiers under cap
THINK TOO MUCH OF MONEY
Many Persons Lose Chance of Happy
Marriage by Exaggerating the
Value of Wealth.
Scores of people lose their chances
of being happily married through mak
ing an unnecessary obstacle of mon
ey. The importance of it is often ex
aggerated. Many a man hesitates to
propose to a girl because of his small
Income. Very often much misery, mis
understanding, and tangled lives result
from the silence. More unfortunate
love affairs are the result of what has
not been said than of spoken words.
When a man has a small, sure in
come, and a prospect of increase,
there is no legitimate reason for his
not speaking of his love; no reason,
for that matter, to prevent marriage.
People are so desperately afraid,
though, of beginning married life in a
small way. They fear the sacrifices
which they will be called upon to make
of the criticism to which they will
be subjected. Many years of happi
ness are lost in this way. It is such
a mistake for young people to want to
start marriage in the state that their
parents are ending it.
To delay marriage until a "comfor
table" income is available is to prove
something lacking in the love. An

"Why waste time in thinking," the
junior retorted, "when he's got to go?
Here I am, lying awake every night

stupidity of that boy, who leaves threa

"Well," said the elder jeweler,
"people stopped and looked, didn't
"Yes, but what of it? That dust
rag?" growled the junior.
"That's why I advise you to keep

it hadn't been for him I am afraid no
body would have looked at all."
In Praise of Courage.
Certain virtues are divided from
vices by so narrow a line that we must
discern very clearly to see the differ
ence. Few men can distinguish pride
lroin vanity; perseverance from stub
bornness; economy from avarice.. The
same is true of courage as distin
guished from effrontery. The courag-e-ous
man must have ambition, not
r.-.erely dream of what he would like
to have. The audacious have been
