Very thoughtfully he twisted the pa

the chimney of one of the lamps, ap
plied the flame to the tobacco in his
pipe, then held it while it burned.
Precisely what was one to under
stand from that message? That Kath
erine had awakened to the truth re
garding the killing of Van Tuyl—or
merely that she mistrusted Black
stock’s temper, should he by any
chance be led to suspect Coast’s true
identity? That she knew the truth
about Power? Or that through some
subtle process of feminine intuition
she had divined that Biackstock was
not wholly hoodwinked by the at

the impostor for keeping silence?
She had not had time to write more.

flame flickered blue and expired with

What Is an education? It Is (he

life as possible for himself, and te
share with others.
This means that the whole person

tion means more than a one-sided de
velopment of one talent or ability. It
means symmetrical and many-sided
, growth. The reason why there are

They are willing to be musicians and
nothing hut musicians. They are
willing to be newspaper men and noth

willing to be lawyers and nothing but
lawyers; teachers and nothing but ;
teachers; ministers and nothing but 1
ministers. And so their range of’ |
thinking, of conversation, and of ac
tion la limited. True education takes
into account a whole being, with many
different possibilities—a life which
has in It the elements of surprise and
an eagerness to know everything
which can be known about a very
great world In order to sympathise
with and enter Into the thought, ao

Taft Letter Aid in India
How Richmond Lawyer Practically
Saw Durbar aa King George’s
New York.—Jonathan Bryan, a
Richmond lawyer, who ta In New York
at the conclusion of a trip around the
world which began last July, attended
the Delhi durbar practically as the
guest of King George, owing to the
magic influence of a letter from Pres
ident Taft which he carried. Mr.
Bryan told of the incident on his ar
rival here. He said:
"Mrs. Bryan and I were anxious to
witness the durbar ceremonies, but
as we neared India we found that no
amount of money could obtain accom
modations. 1 had about abandoned
the idea when 1 thought of my letter
from President Taft, which was in
the nature of a general note of intro
duction and a part of the various cre
dentials which 1 carried.
”1 forwarded the Taft note to the
secretary of the durbar and was
amazed on reaching Calcutta to dls
cover an answer in the sbape of a
special train reserved for Mr. and
Mrs. Bryan. We were conveyed to
the durbar in state and seats were as
signed to us on the gold and purple
car;»et within 1W feet or the king and
queen. We witnessed and heard the
whole ceremony and then were con
ducted back to Calcutta in the same
special train. No greater favors could
have been ahown to us than were won
by President Taft's letter."
8tarted by Susie With Sore Throat,
Keepers New 8upply
New York.—No society circle was
ever more exclusive than the one re
cently formed among the chimpanzee
and orang-outang families in the New
York Zoological park. It Is known as
the Society of Red Flannel and num
bers only nine members. Its badge is
a red flannel band about the throat
and, although It gives one the appear
ance of suffering, each member of this
set glories in wearing one.
Susie, the chimpanzee with a col
lege education, who has traveled all
ever the continent, was troubled with
tonsiiitis a few days ago. She was
unable to swallow her food, and in
an effort to relieve her pain Fred
Knglebolme. the keeper, ripped up a
portion of his red flannel shirt and
after saturating it with a healing oil
wrapped it about her neck.
Susie immediately became an ob
ject of great interest to the other in
mates of the “Primate House." As
she strutted around the other mon
keys set up a chattering and screech
ing that brought both Englebolme
and his assistant, “Dick" Spicer,
running to ascertain the trouble. Even

Tinker, ef Course, Lowed His Neighbor
as Himself, but That Wasn’t
Too Much.
Lord T&nkerville. who is sending
his son to an American school, said
the other day in New Tork:
"There are too many Englishmen—
and English boys as well—who de

painful and unnatural modesty. Their
modesty reminds me of a village tin
“This tinker had a rather crusty
disposition, and his pastor said to him
one day:
“ ‘My man, you should love your
neighbor as yourself.’
“ 'Yes, sir,’ said the tinker.
"But the pastor had in mind a nasty
black eye that the tinker had given
the bricklayer next door, and1 so he
went on:
“ ’Do you, though, do' you honestly,
love your neighbor as yourself?’
“ ’Yes, sir; oh, yes, sir,’ said the
tinker; and he added, ‘but I’m a mod
est man. ye see. and, to tell the truth,
I- ain’t a bit stuck on myself, sir.’ ”

While its first cost is a few cents
more than that of ordinary toilet

cakes of other soap, and making Its
use, in practice, most economical.

dealers everywhere, but the truth of
these claims may be demonstrated

“The greatest curiosity 1 ever came
across in the course of a long expe

man who comes into our office every
day. watches the ticker like a hawk
for five hours, and pays cash for
everything he buys.”
"I can beat that by a mile.” replied
the second broker. “A man came into
our place awhile ago and started to
trade actively in Reading and Union
on a five-point margin. He had $5,000
when he began. In six months he
had $50,000. Then do you know what
he did? He put his money into first

A Washington clergyman made ti
call of consolation upon a woman who

comfort from the Scriptures.”
