FATHER OF YANKEES
PHRASE THAT FITLY DESCRIBES

It would be dllllcult to shape n sen

said : "Thcru la the father of all the
Yankees. " If wo use the word Yankee
to cover and surest everything that
Is practical , useful , Ingenious , re

the one exception that the character

attain to the highest nnd best , the

as his model for ono who should set
forth In his own person the highest at
tainments of human nature with a rec

or conspicuous defeat. Ho was a man
of the earth earthy ; ono who warmed

Diamond Salesman's Secrets.
"There Is no line in which more care
must be exercised than In selling diamonds
mends , " remarked ono of the oldest
dealers in Cleveland. "For Instance ,
we don't dare show a man a largc >
stone than he can afford to buy.
"Even n diamond n carat or n carat
and a half In size looks like n mighty
small affair to pay so much money for ,
and if n man comes in expecting to
pay $75 for a diamond he may got dis
gusted and not buy at all If the Bales-
man shows him something n little
larger for $200. The salesman , if ho
knows his business , will find to a cer
tainty just how much a customer Is
willing to pay before ho shows him
"Then it's better not to show a
colored stone , such as a ruby or an
emerald or a bluish diamond In con
nection with other diamonds. If you
show some customers a colored stone
and then put It away and show him a
good white diamond he will declare
that the diamond is off color. It does

UNCLE SAM'S WORST SENTENCE.
"Dismissal with Ignominy1' Moans the
Most Absolute Disgrace.
The severest sentence which the
United States government can Inlllct
Is undoubtedly "dismissal with Igno
miny , " which Is meted out to ofllcord
of the army and navy who nro guilty
of grent offenses.
U Is the nearest thing to ostracism
that can bo reached In the modern
state. When the contonco "dismissal
with Ignominy" Is passed upon nn of-
llccr It means that his brother oIllcorB
may never spenk to him ngnln ( lining
his llfo. If this , olllcer has n rolntlvo
In the service , no mutter how close
the connection may bo , there must
never again bo communication be
tween the two. *
If It Is a young man who Is thus
dismissed nnd ho has n father In the
army or navy , they are cut off for
ever unless the father should choose
to quit the nation's service also.
And when the sentence Is once
pnssed It Is unchangeable. A mnn
who simply violates the lawn of the
country oven to the point of trea
son has a chance for pardon , but once
ho receives the document hearing the
phrase "dismissal with Ignominy , " It

Even if ho wishes to enlist In the

In the old days the greatest punish

he would bo taken out before an as

his Insignia of rank would bo taken

Two commercial travelers on the

So they wrangled for an hour. Then ,
when the train arrived In Philadelphia
they agreed to submit the matter for
settlement to the engineer. That gen

the window of his cab , listened with
an attentive frown to the two travel
ers' statement of their argument.
Then he smiled , shook his head nnd

Yet it's very simple and easy to un

train wo just turn this 'ere tap , nnd
then we fill the pipe with vacuum. "
Working the "Rope Trick. "
How the "wonder worker" of India
performs his "rope trick" Is told by a
correspondent who witnessed the feat
In a busy street of Surat In broad
daylight : "I was writing In a room
overlooking this thoroughfare , on the
first floor of the house , when my
friend called to me. Stepping on to '
the veranda I saw a small group of
people gathered round a man and n
boy. The man threw a long rope
straight up in the air and the boy then
climbed up the rope , the lower end of
which was hold by the man. Having
1reached the top of the rope , the boy
balanced himself , In various postures ,
on the point of the rope and then ills-
appeared from sight. Afterward ho ap-
pcared ngaln on the ground nnd ho

nnd I went bnck to my writing. "
When Every Man Is Coy.
Feminine proposnls are nothing
now In leap year or otherwise. It Is
said on good authority that Eve sot
the example when she bulled Adam
with an apple or lemon , na certain
excellent authorities claim of lato. As
no man over told the truth about how
ho proposed , nnd still less about how
the demure damsels helped him to do
it , all this must remain in obscurity.
Every man some time in Ills life
has had a coy proposal. In this
every year seems to partake a trlflo
of leap year. Contralla ( Wash. )

Together In Death , as In Life.
Thirty years ago In nn Edinburgh
school there were three pupils who
woie so Intlmnlo nnd Inseparable
companions Hint they wore designated
Faith , Hope nnd Charity. After leav
ing school they continued as warmly1
attached ns over. Indeed , the con
stant appearance of the trio together
"nt kirk and market" became a stand
ing joke. By nnd by tlioy married
within short Intervals of each other.
They hnd cnch three children nnd the
families grow up together In close
friendship. Some three years ago ono
of the three died suddenly and short
ly afterward , with equal suddenness ,
another passed away. A few months
Inter the third died nftor two or three

year , In the prime of life , the three ,
who on earth hnd been all but Insep

A Credit to Surgery.
The action of the surgeon of the

serves chronicling nnd will command
admiration wherever the history of
