limp. A slit of while under the droop

so. Why, he laughed Juwt an natural
then when I held out my awl at him!"
The woman smiled pitifully. ".May
be, papa, maybe."
The shallow of the newspaper slid
slowly Aft'OHti the room. Out on the
street the hot air waved like colorless
flames. There were trees before Mchol
Helm's house, bill the caterpillars tin 1
tied tip the shade in snarls of web and
gnawed leaf. Presently the woman
Hsike agnln.
"We've had ten, nil' every one was
prettier and knowlnger than the last.
This one was awful forward; only a
week back lie drew hisself up In a chair
mi' stood steady for the longest, an' he
knoucd you, pupa, just as well!"
Nlchol leaned toward the sick child,
"lie's fallen off terrible rapid. He
used to be the fattest of all." lie took
one of Its tiny yellow hands In his own
hairy fist. "Look nt yer daddy, little
feller," he chirruped; but tin child did
not notice him.
The sun had Ket, nnd the wont glowed
red hot behind the black roofs. Nlchol
Helm sat on the long bridge that swung
Its Kteel cobweb over the river. Below
him the boats steamed up nnd down,
their lights wrinkling on the surface of
the water. Hut big Nlchol did not no
tice them because of the child lying In
Ills nrniK. A cool breeze fluttered up.
The little one opened Its eye and
smiled nt Its father. "Daddy," it
cooed, then It nistled Its head under
the cobbler's arm nnd slept,
Nlchol was very tired. Ills eyes
stung with slifp, and his arm grew
tiuiiib. Yet he sut there that the dek
child might catch some stray breeze de
nied to the suffocating city.
"Poor little kid," he whispered.
"He'd have died In that hole of n bed
room to-night,"
- -
The sky alwve the city grew dark,
nnd ncroKH It opened a vague fan of re
flected light. The river, too, turned
black and oily, and the lights no longer
qulvered In It, but lay motionless along
the banks, "a straight fringe, glosny n
threads; of colored silk. Still the man
Rat there with the baby brenthlng
peacefully In his nrms.
After hl work was done big Nlchol
drew n chair out of doors and sat down
to read his paper. At thin time of day
the street was n common living room.
Hundreds of children swarmed and
sprawled on the hot pavement, while
the woman' sat on the steps, fanning
themselves with their aprons and gos
siping languidly. Now and then a puff
of coolness drifted up from the river
with mi audible murmur of thankful
ness In Its wake.
Mrs. Helm came out of the house and
stood beside her husband.
"Is your tin nd much noro to-night?"
she Inquired anxiously, ns she caught
a frown of pain on the man's face.
A day or ho lsfore Nlchol had driven
an nwl through the thumb of Ills right
hand, nnd now It was tied up In a wad
of nig, rather dirty and blood-stained.
"It hurts worse to-night than It ever
done. It jumps like a devil was pound
ing away under It," Nlchol Helm an
swered, gloomily; for his thumb was
necessary to his trade nnd his trade was
necessary to his owu nnd ten other

"do to the doctor!" snnrled Nlchol,
savagely, "when I ain't even put by a
cent for coal, nn' winter cumin' nearer
every day."
"It ain't here yet," InuR-hed the wo
man, looking up to where the moon
hung In the hot twilight, while as a
bubble of milk, "an' you mus' go the
first tiln(f to-morrow."
"I'll see myself dead first!" growled
the man; but ho went and sue went
With ului.
The doctor looked at the ioor hand,
nil puffed and crimson.
"The thumb will have to come off.
It's just like you people to wait until
it's too lale, then come here ami expect
me to cure you! You will be lucky If
you don't lose your arm."
Nichol Helm staggered back with a
gasp. Tin sorrows of the ioor come
baldly, with nothing to soften their nn
nor.ncement; for lietwcen them and the
fact of life there Is no buffet of gold

"He shan't do It! I can cure It don't

"Send the woman out," said the doc
The cobbler sank into n chair, his big

"Hut, doctor my trade I'll starve
"Well, If you would rather die "
"You shan't (lie! You (didn't starve!
I'll help you!" broke in the wife, throw
ing her arms nlsmt her husband and
drawing Ids head down on her breast
"Poor pa in!" she whispered, stroking
his hair with her knotted, freckled
hands. "It'll be all right."
An hour later they sat together in the
old horse car. Ills arm was In a .sling
and n club-sliiipe d bandage took tin
place of his right hand. It was iv

Nichol himself a little sick. He was
very while under his grizzled beard,
but his lips were firm. She still sobbed.
and her face was blotched and swollen
from her tears. Now and then big
Nichol patted her shoulder. "There,
there, wife," he repeated, automatical

work wedged between his knees and
his thin needle stabbing unceasingly
In and out. In his place n womnn bent
over the broad shoe soles. The sun
shine flooded the little room, fusing her
faded hair to bronze, and showing
through her flying hands. A room was
open behind tne shop, nnd one could
see big Nlchol standing by the stove,
the bnby tucked under his maimed
arm. Hi; was stirring something In a
kettle, and his face was anxious.
"I bet she's got them pegs In slant

"All right. Dinner ready?" she an

Trees that Whistle.
The musical or whistling tree Is found
In the West Indian Islands, In Nubia
and the Soudan. It has a peculiar
shaped leaf, nnd pods with n split or
open edge. The wind parsing through
these sends out the sound which gives
the tree Its peculiar name. In Itn Hin
doos, there Is a valley filled with these
trees, ami when the trade winds blow
across the Islnnds a constant moaning,
deep-toned whistle Is heard from It,
which In the still hours of the night has
n very weird nnd unplensnnt effect. A
siecles of acacia, which grows very
abundantly In the Soudan, Is also called
the whistling tree by the natives. Its
shoots are frequently, by the agency
of the larvae of Insects, distorted In
shape, and swollen Into a globular blad
der from one to two Inches In diameter.
After the Insect has emerged from a
circular bole In the side of this swell
ing, the opening, played nyton by the
wind, becomes a musical Instrument,
equal In sound to a sweet-toned flute.
Labor at the tin ana Gold-Kiclils.
Kvery placer has a man who docs
nothing else but pack provisions from
the riverside to the placer. The gov
ernment limit for the load Is fifty
pounds, but sometimes a hundred
pounds or even more Is carried, but of
course for extra pay. The colored boy
Manuel whom I employed not yet a
grown man on one occasion carried
seventy pounds, while I, carrying two
tents weighing nlKiut fifteen pounds,
Ix'cnme very weary after traveling half
the distance; thereupon he took one of
the tents on top of his load, Trobably
ho could have made the distance In four
hours, but owing to my slowness It
took us all day, and I arrived nt our
d(stlnatlon completely wrn out. It la
certainly Impossible for a white man to
labor In that swampy wastry. Century.
Many I'srlsof thcGlohe Are Ytt Terra
Incog-nita to the Civilized Man.
It is the very general supiiosltion that
there la very little of the world we live
on that has not been explored by geog
raphers, and that the very little that
yet remains to Investigate i on the Af
rican continent. And yet the fact Is
that about i-f).!" ),() square miles of
this earth's surface is yet a terra incog
nita, one-tenth of which is on our own
coutluents of North and South Amer
ica. The Cosmos, published In Paris, has
an article on this subject which gives
a synopsis of an address by Mr. Lobley
before the Ixtudon geographical con
gress last mouth, that brings out thii
Interesting question very clearly.
Mr. Ixibley reminds us that. In the
first place, toward the middle of the
sixteenth century all seas bad been
traversed by navigators, and that If the
maps of the continents were not yet
very exact at least their relative posi
tions and their general configuration
were known. Australia Itself appears
on a French map of VA'Z under the
name of Great Java. In the course of
the sixty years included in the last de
cade of the fifteenth century and the
tlrst half of the sixteenth a group of
navigators had advanced geographic
knowledge in a degree that has never
Is-en reached in any other period so
short. Sebastian d'Klaiio had made his
first vovage around the world: Vasco
De Caina had doubled the Cape of
(liMid Hope; Christopher Columbus had
added the two Americas to the map;
the voyages of Cabot and Magellan had
completed this wonderful list of new
To-day. outside of the polar regions,
we must confess that all the seas have
been explored, but this is far from be
ing the case with the land. Au Im
mense extent Is entirely unknown to
us; nnotlier. still more considerable,
has been only Imperfectly explored;
travelers have traveled it, commerce
has exploited some of Its products, but
good maps of it do not exist. Finally,
only the least part is well known: geo
disv has covered It with a network of
triangles, and the maps of it are com
plete even from a topographical stand
point. After the two jsilar regions, which
have remained Inaccessible, Africa Is
the part of the world of which we have
the least Information. Notwithstand
ing the general scramble among Euro
pean nations to divide up and possess
the land, they have only a vague idea
of what the continent contains, over
C,r(i'l,(MK) square miles being yet unex
After Africa, Australia offers the
vastest Held to the Investigation of ex
plorers; we must rcineinlier that even
its seacoast was not fully explored till j
IS',:!. Since that time, at the price of
great suffering. It has been crossed
from south to north, but no traveler has
yet traversed It from east to west.
While the North American continent
has been very well explored, the whole
central region of the southern conti
nent has not been mapped with any
degree of accuracy. Some portions of
It have been roamed over by men hunt
ing for wood, mines and articles of com
merce, but very little Is known of the
Interior of the continent.
To sum up. the yet unexplored parts
of the g!ohe cover an area of about .10,

Utilizing the florae Cars.
When the car horses throughout Con
necticut cities were retired a few years
ago with the coming of the trolley, peo
ple wondered what would lieeome of
the (KjO cars that they had dragged so
long. No one would linve guessed then
that a brisk demand for these old cars
would spring up In one season and
would almost completely exhaust the
supply. Yet such has bHn the case
this summer. The curs have been sold
for summer shelters lu rural districts
for hunters' cauqis, for lodges by soli
tary lakes, for cabins on house boats,
and, most of nil, for the homes of
campers on the coast of Long Island
Sound, nnd Its Islands. A Norwich
party at Scotchcnp, on the Thames riv
er, have arranged four horse cars In
the form of a hollow square. A can
vas awning covers the courtyard made
by the cars, and a tall flagstaff rising
from the center completes the pleasing
establishment. One of the cars Is used
ns a kitchen and workshop, and the
others are lounging, sleeping and recep
tion rooms.
London' Tower.
The tower of London was built at
various periods. .The white tower was
built In the time of William the Con
queror. Grandulph, bishop of Roches
ter, was the architect, and began It
about 1080. In 1000 William Kufus
commenced another castellated build
ing, known as the tower of St. Thomns,
under which Is the "Trnltor's Gate."
Henry I, completed It.
