The inaugural committee which has
t-harge of the arraiigenients for Presi
dent Roosevelt's Inauguration March
4 has unanimously decided to hold the
inaugural ball on Saturday night,
March 4. This action was preceded by
a discussion of a suggestion that that
function, always a' feature of the in
augural ceremonies, should be held on
the Monday night following so that
Sunday would not necessitate the early
closing of the ball and interception of
the promenade concert program. It
was pointed out, however, that thou
sands of visitors would leave imme
diately after the '.formal inauguration
and that if the ball were deferred until
Monday evening the attendance neces
sarily would be comparatively small.
The inaugural parade, ' it is said, will
be an unusually large one, both in
point of civil as well as military representation.

With 100,000 Hussian dollars in his
pocket, Horace G. Burt, former presi
dent of the Union Pacific railway, is
homeward bound from St Petersburg
and will pass through Denver about
New Year's day on his way to New
York, where he will assume the man
agement of the Grand Trunk.
Mr. Burt about a year ago started
on a tour of the world, ostensibly for
rest, but on reaching the Russian cap
ital, at the personal request of the
czar, undertook and carried out most
successfully the reorganization of the
various railway lines in that country,
especially the Trans-Siberian road,
which was. in poor shape t meet the
extraordinary demands or the war
which ws then imminent."

We are born; we laugh; we weep;.
We love; we droop; we die!.
Ah wherefore do we laugh or weep?
Why f'o we live or die?
Who ki. vs that secret deep? ,
Alas, net I! ..;..
Why doth the violet spring
Unseen by human eye?
Why do the radiant seasons bring
Sweet thoughts that quickly fly?
Why do our fond hearts cling
To things that die? .

We flght-rfind fly;
We lcve;.we lose; and then, ere. long,
Stone dead we lie.

"I reckon I've cured you of your
contrariness for good and all," cried
Farmer Haines, ' swinging in at the
kitchen door, standing an old shot gun
behind the stove and scowling fiercely
as he took his accustomed seat at
table. His blazing eyes challenged
those of a i slender girl engaged in
emptying the steaming contents of
several pots into a line of waiting
"Why, father, what have you done?"
The girl's hand went up as if she felt
a clutch at her pretty throat and her
eyes flashed back a look of defiance
not unmixed with fear. "If you have
killed him. finish your mad work and
shoot me, too!" she cried, dropping a
saucepan and rushing for the door.
The old man turned to stop her, but,
even as his arm was raised, the door
flew open and a young man, minis
terially garbed and very much out of
breath, nervously dabbing at his chub
by face with a large silk handker
chief, entered precipitately and con
fronted the young woman.
"Dora Haines!" he gasped, "you look
all worked up. What's the matter? I
thought I heard "
' "Ask father he knows," faltered
Dora, breaking from the affectionate
grasp of the Reverend Giles Faxon
and flying down the pathway leading
to the' road.
"What what's happened?" asked
the parson, seating himself and gaz
ing with impatient curiosity at the
stalwart Haines, as he proceeded to
transfer his dinner from the stove to
the table. "What what's Dora so put
out about? I thought I heard ".
"You heard nothing," declared the
farmer, pausing to level a warning
finger at the preacher, "Jo you under
stand? You heard nothing!"
"'But I certainly "
Kaiues in one stride was at the
other's elbow. His great fist was
within an inch of the reverend nose.
"You shut up and let me talk," tie
hissed. "That Barker fellow has been
snooping around here again contrary
to, my orders. He's after my Dora,
and she the ninny loves him. Hear
that? Loves him!"
. "But Barker's a forger I ' thought
ho had left the country."
"Will you be quiet? Dora would
have run away with him if I hadn't
kept my eye skinned. I warned him
that the next time ho came around
I'd put shot into him, and I guess
I've kept my word-"
"Oh, I trust you havenl "
"Never you mind. "Xou've heard
nothing and you want to let that stick
in your memory or you may come to
harm. If yon have any idea of mar
rying my daughter, mind what I'm
"Was Dora going to him when I
"Go and see, for ail I care but re
member you heard no shooting."
The Reverend Giles Faxon, in any
thing but a happy frame of mind, left
the house. Several farm hands were
coming in from the fields to dinner.
His first impulse was to inquire of
them as to Barker and the shooting,
but he remembered Haines' warning
and let them pass unquestioned.
"Perhaps ne is lying wounded down
there by the ereek," he thought, "per
haps oh, God perhaps Haines killed
him and it is all my fault. I will
There was no answer and the young
clergyman floundered around for sev
eral minutes without observing any
sign of a scuffle. Suddenly he heard
a voice and, guided by the sound,
soon came upon Dora Haines kneeling
beside the prostrate form of a man.
Dora appeared not to , notice Faxon
who, as soon as his eyes fell upon his
rival's face against the girl's heart,
rcried out: ;
"How can you, Dora? He is a felon
he who forged old 'man Cotton's
"If you have killed him, shoot me,
go and see. Dora, if she expected him,
may be there before me."
Less than half an hour had elapsed
since Faxon, on his way afoot from
his school to dine with Haines and his
daughter, had heard high words from
a clump of trees near the creek by the
roadside words, followed by tbe re
port of a gun. He had distinguished
the voices but, being of a timid na
ture, had hastened his steps toward
the farm house, not pausing to in
quire into the cause or effect of the
strange occurrence. ?
Arriving at a little bridge. that span
ned the creek,. Faxon, leaving the road,
tremblingly plunged into the under
brush, callings "Prra ' ' . w
ui 4 you, l)o a .
' Live? Yes! Live to see you well
name the man whose arrest is wOrth
five hundred dollars." x
Dora turned upon him with scorn
in her beautiful eyes. "He is inno
cent!" Bhe cried. Barker stirred and
the farmer's daughter again gave him
her attention, calling him by endearing
names names the Reverend Faxon
had never before heard from her
lips. A sigh escaped Dora's lover and
suddenly he sat up, looking longingly
into the girl's eyes and then letting
his gaze . wander to the surprised
countenance of the parson. . "Dora
knows I'm innocent, ' he said, and
then something like a smile brighten
ed his handsome features: a vsmile of
triumph. Faxon made a move as if
"Not yet!' cried Barker, and there
was strength in his voice. "Stay!;"
and Barker's, hand was raised. In .it
he held a shining revolver. "Dora's
father told me, before this little forg-.
. ing incident, that she loved you, so
when you stooped to forge another's
name and further stooped to accuse
me old Cotton's clerk for love of
her, believing that she really loved
you, I let it appear that I left the
country.' But I was not very far away.
One niglit I stole to Dora's window
to say good-by, .and learned from her
lips that her heart was mine. Her
father interrupted us and, believing
the lie you spread concerning me,
would have held me to claim the re
ward. Dora pleaded for my liberty
and her father let me go, threatening
to shoot me should I again be seen on
his place. To-day I came to expose
yon and to take . Dora away as my
wife. I managed to send her ?.
message to meet me here, but her
father saw me and kept his promise.
As for you you will soon change your
ministerial garb for a striped suit." :
"You can prove nothing;"
' "That will come later; Jttst now you
have work, to - do--the last- task you
will perform as a clergyman, I think
for some time marry us!T
The Reverend :Giles Faxon trem-'
bled, hesitated and stuttered. Dora
hid her face on her lover's shoulder.
The point of Barker's pistol rose a
trifle and Faxon did his duty.
"Will he live?" asked Faxon, for
Dora and Barker were very silent fol
lowing the strange ceremony and the
clergyman feared or did he hope?
that his victim might be passing be
yond the power to accuse him to the
"Live? Yes! Live to see you well
rewarded," cried Barker,' springing to
"Why why, I thought you were
badly wounded," declared the Rev
erend Giles Faxon.
"He would have been," said Dora,
nestling close in her lover's arms,
"had I not thought to put blank cart
ridges in father's gun."
Edison and Pasteur. .
Thomas A. Edison has settled down
to the life of a country gentleman .un
der the shadow of the New ' Jersey
mountains. Americans are inclined to
forget that his is one of the great
names of the world.
Anent this fact, says a writer in the
Brooklyn Eagle, I recall an interview
with , Pasteur, the immortal French
bacteriologist, In which he said, with
the simple and unaffected vanity of a
Frenchman: "Your Edison is a great
