The man who is known as "a prince

money is gone.
Of course , a business man may be a
Christian ; but there is little likelihood
of his becoming a captain of industry
by following this policy.
When you go to collect a bill the

Every time an American goes abroad

The Berlin insane asylum claims a

A Virginia legislator who tacks "M.
D. " to his name has introduced a bill
to make kissing illegal unless the par
ties to the osculation can show by a
physician's certificate that they are

chief end of a legislator is to make
business for himself.
Sweden has begun to emancipate it

Marriage without love is almost a
crime. In fact , it would be regarded
as one if the world were as true , as
simple , as sincere as it ought to be.
But society has so long wandered in
a maze of complexity , and marriage ,
from monarchs downward , is under
taken for such a variety of reasons
apart from love , that only a few re
tain the correct Impression about it.
And of these few the majority are
women or girls who would rather die
than marry a man they did not love.
Sir Walter Scott knew this well when
he wrote "The Bride of Lammermoor. "
His noble , gentle , true and tender
spirit , aware of what love is , could

From out the hearsay and conjecture
which constitutes much of our knowl
edge of the Filipino one incident
speaks in words which all may under
stand. An American missionary who
had taken a little bicycle excursion
into the interior , and had preached to
large numbers of natives , was taken
111 in a village which had suffered
especially from the exigencies of the
war. For a week he was as tenderly
nursed by the strangers as he could
have been among his own people. One
morning , as he came out early , intend
ing , weak as he was , to make the long
bicycle ride to Manila , he found await
ing him twenty Filipinos , only a few
> of whom had he ever seen before. One
jof them took his bicycle to lead. The
others showed him a litter they had
jfoshioned. into which he was put. Four
of the men took the poles of the lltte
on their shoulders.and the rest trudge
on behind as relays. Over the roug
mountain paths , through the intens
heat of the long day , these men bor
their American brother the twenty-liv
miles to the coast , and refused to tak
even a penny in compensation. Surel
even in our so-called heathen depot

Frugality and industry make a fin
team , and we all of us experience a :
approving thrill when we read of th
great man who consecrated his yout ;
to an unmixed diet of oatmeal porridg
for the sake of a material econoin ;
that should result later in wealth , ma
terial and mental. Science approve
also and is shocked by the extravagan
self-indulgence of the poor , who coul <
secure a competence so easily if the :
would take to porridge , or , better still
to raw turnips , like Colonel Sellers

his writing tablets , the professor o
science feeds them , clothes them
lodges them , pays the doctors' bills am
the undertakers' bills with a growinj
enthusiasm as he keeps reducing th <
figures , except those of mortality , am
presents his final calculations as a tri
umph. It is thus with Prof. Clark , whc
has reached the conclusion that tin
"unskilled American workman" cai
keep a family in comfort and save mon
oy on § 300 a year. Moreover , at forty
five he should have laid by an independ
ent fortune , and meanwhile he will have
rioted in those greatest of blessings , la
bor and abstinence. As the professoi
contemplates the Irrefutable demon
stration and hearkens for the dinnei
bell which shall summon him to roasl
beef at twenty-five cents a pound , hf
becomes sterner in his demand foi
self-denial in those unskilled work
men. "The man or woman , " he says
'who becomes dependent through neg

juilty as the thief who breaks in and
steals. " And it is not improbable thai
iie will come to regard $300 as a de
moralizing superabundance and cut the

Ochiltree was a
Texan by birth.
His father was a

er of the Texan republic , and the bo ;
grew up in his law office. At 15 , how
ever , he broke away from home an <
served with the Texas Rangers agains
the Comanches and Apaches. At 2
he was editing a Democratic paper an <
attending a national convention as !
delegate. In the Civil War he was i
messenger for Jefferson Davis am
General Longstreet. After the war In
became a Republican , and Genera

disturbed by hearing of Hie colonel a

and demanded an explanation. -

John Chamberlain named after m < \ "
Ochiltree tired of the Federal job aiu
became proprietor and editor of tin
Houston Telegraph. As a uewspapei
man he went to New York , where IK
became acquainted with August Bel
mont , who introduced him to manj
men of prominence , lie went to Paris
and formed the acquaintance of James
Gordon Bennett. When Bennett oab'eil
2,000 words to the New York Herald
on the opening of the Paris Exposition
in 1807 , Colonel Ochiltree asked that
the dispatch be duplicated to the
Houston Telegraph. The Frenchmen
were amazed at the man's evident higli
financial standing. They never learned
the truth that Ochiltree's paper sus
pended three days after the receipt of
the cable. The colonel's dispatch was
too much for the paper's treasury.
When he came home from Europe he
ran for Congress in a Texas district
covering 37,000 square miles. He made
fifty-two speeches , covering the terri
tory on horseback , mulcback and on
foot. He was elected , though the dis
trict was a Democratic stronghold.
While at Washington a correspondent
wagered with a friend that he could
make any member of Congress known
from one end of the country to the
other within a year , and he picked out
Ochiltree , red-headed , a good story
teller and fond of notoriety , as the
man. He began to send out stories
of Ochiltree , many of which were true
and others far from it , and Ochiltree
became a personage to be quoted , in
terviewed and sought after. Rich men
became his intimates. He traveled in
Europe and attracted the attention of
capitalists to the advantages which
Texas offered men of means. In re
cent years he had spent his time
around the fashionable hostelries of
New York City.
HAS A COMEDY JAIL.
In Klizabethtown , N. J. , Prisoners Are
Locked Out Instead of In.
Elizabethtown , the county seat of
Essex , in the Adirondacks , possesses a
comedy jail , says the Philadelphia
Ledger. It is small , having windows
secured by wooden bars and the jail-
yard inclosed by a solid fence of three-
quarter-inch boards , which a healthy
man could push over with his shoulder.
But the prisoners rarely , if ever , at
tempt to escape.
Some good stories are told by Judge
Kellogg , Judge Hand and other resi
dents. It is a custom to allow the
prisoners out on parole , so that they
may cut the grass on neighboring
lawns , do garden work or repair roads
for the village and county. Recently
sne prisoner who should have returned
it 6 o'clock did not apply for admission
until nearly an hour later. The war-
len angrily demanded to know the rea
son , and added :
"Don't let this occur again , or I will
not allow you to come in. I lock the
loor at G o'clock , and won't open it in
; he future for you. "
Another , accused of and awaiting
: rial for manslaughter , overstayed his
larole and pleaded as an excuse that ,
is it was Saturday , he thought he
ivoulcl go and spend Sunday with his
, vife , returning to the jail on Monday
