Thaw thought more of White
than she did of her husband.
Women never fully realise the
great jealously of men. No doubt
Mrs. Thaw told her husband he
was inferior to White , which was
true enough , but Mrs. Thaw was
indiscreet in talking about it in
the presence of her husband.
Mrs. Thaw is now "telling" on
White for a consideration ; the
New York papers say the Tha\\
estate will pay her $300,000 for
her story , and then she will leave
the country. It is not surprising
that Mrs. Thaw tells on White
she is not true to her own mother.

In no other one act does ( Jed
show his confidence in man's
mercy , as lie docs in putting a
naked , helpless and sometimes
unwelcome babe into a home. It
is a hard heart indeed that can
not harbor love for a baby. The
following beautiful lines on a
child's birthday are by a Falls
City person whose name we are
not at liberty to give :
XOVIMIIKI : : 25,1891.
Sonic time there came to our bouse the
ctt'.cst little box
To Hood our borne with sunshine and
till our hearts with joy ,
With hair of gold , and eyes of blue ,
and bis mamma's gentle grace ,
L'lic smites would chase each other o'er
his bonny little face ;
And our old home seems brighter and
our hearts arc ever gay ,
Since our baby came to brighten them
one j'car ago toda3' .
We surely did not need him and so
were loth to greet
The music of the laughter and the
patter of the feet ,
That sure as time went speeding on
would be our fate to hear ,
When bu bad been our heritage one
swiftly passing year ;
Anil now that year lias gone and been
garnered to the past ,
since first his head was pillowed on
the fond maternal breast ;
And though today our baby boy is only
one year old ,
The joy that he has been to us in
words can ne'er be told ;
\nd when he nestles down and our
anus around him fold ,
We , would not barter hint away for
world of sordid gold.
So this day we bless the holy Angels
for our darling treasure given ;
Recause someway he rcachc * down
and lifts us nearer heaven. '
And when each day we lift our hearts
and our grateful homage pay ,
May we be pure in thought and life as
our baby is today.
A great thought and a great
love are possessions forever.

Vengeance On The Dead.
UY JOHN CrsitM vx.
The officers had done their
best , but the .ship was doomed.
Already it was listing to port.
In a minute or ten minutes
it would sink.
Arthur fought his way like a
madman to the head of the stairs
and caufht-Lillian in his arms.
"Stand back1 cried the mate.
"The boat is full one , two "
"Not for myself -for her , "
"Pass her in , then , " sang the
mate. "No men in this boat.1'
All the women and children go
Desperately Arthur tried to
lift the girl into the boat just as
it was being lowered.
He would have succeeded , but
a young man leaped upon the
gunwale pushing her aside in his
frenzy and clambering in himself.
The girl gave a cry andstref/dhcd /
out her hands for help , clutching
the edge of the boat.
The young man was turned
and Arthur could see his face.
It was livid with fear ! Great
beads of sweat moistened the
long lock of dark hair that hung
above his forehead. With an
oath the coward turned upon the
girl , beating her hands down ,
and as she still clung'he caught
up an oar and struck .her across
As Arthur tried to support her
Lillian's gown was torn and she
shot downward into the sea.
"Coward ! " ' screamed the mate
as he turned.
Ills pistol flashed and the
young man threw up his hands
a.nd toppled overboard.
Arthur already had dived after
Lillian. He did not want to live
unless he found her. He swam
this way and that under the
water , and felt abo'ut with his
hands. lie could not touch her.
When he came to the surface
fora moment's breath he looked
around wildly. Lillian was not
in bight. The boat containing
the women was rowing rapidly
'away * " from "the ship. * The
coward was floating ) dead , with
pale , upturned face , a few yards
away. It was as if the lake
refused to take the miscreant to
Arthur filled his lungs with air
and dived again.
When he opened his eyes he
was' on land , surrounded , by
friends. For a moment the
awful scene was hidden from
him. Then he remembered.
"Lillian ? ' ' he asked. They
shook their heads.
For months Arthur was like a
madman. He was filled with a
consuming hatred for the youth
who had murdered Lillian who
.had takenMier place in the boat
and then had beaten her off into
the water. The man was dead ,
and it is awful to hate the dead.
Arthur felj that he could' pursue
him through world after world
to get his just vengeance.
He traveled from place to
place , trying to forget , and at
last the day came that he found
himself in a cottage in the
presence of an old couple gray
haired , gentleand yet sad. He
learned the cause of their sadness
by accident. Their only son had
been lost in the wreck of the
Sunflower he had gone down
in the company of Lillian and
the other ill-fated ones who
perished in that disaster.
"I was' there , " said Arthur ,
his grief and his hatred coming
over him afresh.
Then the tongues of the aged
couple were loosed.
"And to think , " cried the old
man , "that so many lives were
lost that could ha've been saved.
I have followed the sea. I wat
commander of the Casparia , but
I am ashamed of my profession ,
They were cowards cowards
and the brave ones are dead ,
Cowards and dogs ! "
" 'My boy did his duty , " sai d
the mother , tears rolling dowr
"lie has conic to me iiylreams
He conies every night. I hay
seen him lighting to rescue tin
women and children , giving up
his own life thnt they might be
saved. " /
"It is my one comfort , " said
the old man , simply , "to know
that he died the death of the
brave and the noble. "
"It is all that enables us to
live. " said the mother , " to * know
our boy was a hero. "
She came toward Arthur with
"Here is his photograph , " she
murmured. "Perhaps you have

, ceased to beat. He knew the
face instantly. The thin feat

curl that clustered about the

back to her. His fingers were
shaking. His eyes were aflame ,
"You/ knew him-- you saw
him die ? " the mother cried.
"You know my brave boy ? "
Arthur bowed. For a moment
he could not speak.
"Yes , 1 saw him .die , " he said ,
as he turned away. lI saw him
at the last. He was in one of
the boats that was saved , but he
leaped into the sea to make a
place for a woman. "
"Heaven be praised for that
I am proud that he gave up his
life for others , " said the old man.
Arthur had given up his
It is a God's blessing that Ev
elyn Ncsbitt Thaw has finally
been subjected to cross examina
tion , for now that the truth is
being brought out. decent women
may quit their public and enthus
iastic espousal of her cause and
again take interest in their homes
Mushy journalists and Mrs.
Thaw's carefully prepared story ,
were bringing about a rather
sickening condition of things ,
lor it is most unpleasant to see
mothers and sisters prating about
"poor ICyelyn , " and defending
her as a model of chastidy and
purity. Especially for those who
know anything about New York's
night life , and Jhe part Evelyn
Nesbitt played in it. It now dc-
velopes that the girl went out
with married men oil yachting
trips before even she met White
that her relations with White
continued steadily that she
hounded him t'nr money that
she thought all women unchaste
until she told her "story" to
Thaw , and was made acquainted
with right thinking by that pure
noble young man. The truth o
the matter , and it will be shown
by Jerome , is that Evelyn Ncs
bitt went to New York to sell her
beauty. White was her first
prominent victim , and she deserted -
serted him for Thaw. After be
ing ordered out ot hotels time
and again , Mrs. Win , K. Thaw
urged their marriage as the les
ser of two evils. Thaw was always -
ways jealous of White , and being
a degenerate of degenerates , shot
and killed him in a transport of
jealous rage. A nice case for
decent women to discuss publicly !
A nice woman for them to grow
so excited over ! George Creel.

Odd Uses for Phonographs ,
A man went into a music store
in this city last week xvith n.
phonograph record , which he
asked the clerk to place in a ma
chine and reproduce the record
upon it. When the machine was
started the sound of a baby's
words and laughter came from
"Hello papa ! 'crcs a tiss fum
me en little I3ob. I wusht oed
turn home. "
For a full minute the baby's
voice talked. Then came a few
words in a woman's voice.
The man dabbed at his eyes
with a handkerchief and said :
"That's my wife and baby
He was a traveling saleman.
His home was in New York.
"I wouldn't have missed that
for a $20 bill , " he said to the
clerk. "I've been away from
home six weeks now , and every
Saturday evening I have received
a record from home. I'll tell you
there's nothing so good as the
sound of their voices. It beats a
letter 200 city blocks. An' that'll
goin1 some , too. "
"How did he work that
scheme ? " the clerk was asked.
"Easily. In his home in New
York is a talking machine , His
wife simply puts a blank record
into it and she and the baby talk
into it > Then she mails it to him
and he has simply to put the rec
ord into another machine to have
it Reproduced. "
I'KKSKKVING THIS llADY's VO1CU.
The clerk said that it was be
coming quite a fad for parents to
have their babies talk into a
phonograph record. Then the
record was carefully put away to
be kept until the infant grew up.
"There'll be lots of fun with
those records , " the clerk said.
"Imagine an old man listening
to the prattle of his own baby
' A little more than a year ago ,
the wife of an organist in Kansas
City while visiting in Minneap
olis , sang "My Rosary" for a
talking machine record. Not
long afterwards she died. The
phonographic record was sent to
her husband here. Occasionally
he listens to the sacred song , as
sung by her , and it is a great
comfort to him. *
Phonographs are put to many
queer uses. They are sometimes
used /at funerals , to reproduce
sacred songs. Where persons are
too poor to pay the expense of
regular singers , it is often found
satisfactory. Sermons arc repro
duced by it. It was used in de
livering Hearst speeches during
the last campaign in New York-

"About the most novel use T
have ever heard for a talking
machine. " a dealer said , ' 'is a
plan to use it as a burglar alarm.
A man came in herd some time
ago and said he wanted a cheap
machine to put in the basement
of his home. 'I'm going to at
tach a string to it , ' he said , 'so
that when anyone opens the base
ment door , it will start the ma
chine. I'll have it yelling 'thief ! '
'murder ! ' 'police ! ' and have it
cuss the intruder. That's what
I want it for. "
