HE'S THE SLAVE OF A MENU.
It Keeps a Man Guessing What to Ea
and Then's He's Rushed.
Kansas City Star : The man witl
the straw hat entered the aromatli
door of the restaurant , and having
placed the straw hat upon & , .hanger
deposited himself In a chair. The
waiter escorted a tlnkly glass of lc (
water to the newcomer's table an <
passed him a menu card.
Straightway the face that soon waste
to bo fed became clouded with an ox
presslon of keen unrest for he was
one of the regulars and he was ui
against the eternal Interrogation , I. e.
what to eat ? The menu , originated
with an Idea of helping , was a heavj
hindrance. He had thought , early li
the morning , of something he couh
eat at noon which would keep tin
meal from seeming a mere duty tha' '
ho owed the Interior but the sigh
of the menu card drove it from tin
index of his remembrance. The mem
card he could recite by heart , begin
nlng at "Cream of Tomato Soup , 1 (
cents , " and winding up with tuttl-frut
tl nt a nlckle more. The only Idea hi
received from conning the nourish
ment bulletin was the conviction tha
the only things listed wore the ver ;
things which could be eaten withou
protest only after several weeks o
"A-hem ! "
The above remark came from th <
attendant waiter , who had stood 01
alternate feet until they wore botl
exhausted. He only wanted to le
the diner know that the boy wltl
the black suit and the food spottei
cuff was still on the job and Intendei
to stick for the finish.
"Oh , I haven't forgotten you , " salt
the diner smiling wanly ; and he tool
a hasty glance at the reverse side o
the card In hope of discovering an In
" 'S all right , " the waiter reasBurre <
him. "Take your time. I get pale
by the day. Just wake me up whei
you get ready to order. " And wltl
that he composed his features am
leaned against the wall as one wbi
wraps the mantle of hla couch nbou
him and lies him down to peacefu
The diner was desperate. Shadlm
his eyes with the card he glancei
furtively aside to see what fellow vie
tluis had received from the sculler ;
No luck they had all got their tip
from the bulletin and our hero was
back where ho started. Something
must be done ! Ills noon hour was
fast fading into the Irrevocable past.
After three minutes more of struggle
ho throw up the sponge surrendered
unconditionally. He seized the card
and wrote down what ho had written
every noon for the past two weeks.
Along toward the end n hitch pre
sented Itself which necessitated arous
ing the dormant dlshhandler.
"What kind of pie have you ? " the
diner Inquired of the now attentive
"Apple pie. fresh peach pie , goose
berry pie , lemon and apple. "
"All right ; bring me cherry. "
"No cherry ! "
"No cherry well , what have you
got ? "
Anyhow he finally chose one and
the order disappeared beyond the
water tanks and was swallowed by the
kitchen's awlnglng doors.
The above constellation of little
stars , as used by regular writers , In
dicates the lapse of time. That's what
they Indicate here. At the end of a
5-mlnute lapse the diner succeeded In
attracting the waiter's attention , by
doing a Swiss boll ringing act on hla
glass , making queer noises with his
mouth and stamping on the floor.
When the servile ear was again In at
tendance ho pointed to his watch and
"Do you see that watch ? "
The waiter admitted that his eye
sight was good.
"Well , I've been here for exactly
half an hour. I wanted to eat that
food now It wasn't for December de
livery. You've got the worst service
here of any cafe In the world Chris
tian , heathen or chop suey ! You serve
the worst food In the world , and take
longer to do It In ! I'll never sot my
foot In this joint again. Before sun
down tonight I'm going to buy mo a
gasoline stove , a dozen eggs , and mar
ry a cook woman cook preferred.
Now , see If you can get my order be
fore my hair turns gray I'll race
The waiter , being a philosopher at
heart , and having read Shapespeare ,
turned to the kitchen and recited the
following In an undertone :
"Consistency ! Consistency ! Where
art thou , Consistency ? " and there was
Train Scares Team.
Nellgh , Neb. , Aug. 15. Special to
The News : While Mrs. J. M. Bennett ,
Mrs. Scott and a little girl about 8
years of age were about to drive
through the entrance of Riverside
park yesterday afternoon , a stock
train approached and frightened the
horse they were driving. All the occu
pants of the buggy were thrown out
and the horse broke loose from the ve
hicle. Mrs. Bennett recovered from
the wreck unhurt , but Mrs. Scott and
the little girl were not so fortunate ,
the latter sustaining a severe sprained

USELESS TO WARN OTHERS.
Cornelius L. Alvord Asks Why He
Should Give Advice. ,
New York , Aug. 15. "Are you hap
py ? "
"No , I am not. "
Behind this simple question and the
concise reply made by Cornelius L.
Alvord , Jr. . Is the story of life wreck
ed in an effort to obtain happiness.
The effort failed because the happi
ness seemed attainable only through
one medium money. The money was
obtained , but it brought not content
ment and ease , but mental misery and
physical collapse. Yet by many of
Alvord's neighbors he Is looked upon
as happy. With a fine home , sur
rounded by seventy-five acres of fer
tile fields and credited with the pos
session of an Independent income , he
says he has nothing.
Cornelius L. Alvord , Jr. , Is the man
who stole nearly | 700,00'0 eight years
ago from the First National bank of
New York , where he was employed for
years as a note teller. He was caught
and pleaded guilty and sentenced to
thirteen years In Sing Sing prison.
He was released last year , having
gained time by good behavior.
Entering prison In the prime of life ,
Alvord left it a broken man. His hair
was whitened , his nervous system
wrecked and his general health weak
"I made my mistake and I paid the
legal penalty for It , " he said. "I nm
still paying mental and physical Inter
est on the debt. "
Despite his own bitter oxparlence ,
his downfall and punishment , Alvord
would not send out a formal warning
to others who are In positions like
his. Even the case of Erwln Johann
Wider , cashier of the Russo-Chlnese
bank , charged with embezzling S080-
000 , did not move Alvord.
"It has always "been the way of Wall
street , and It always will be the way , "
he said. "A warning to the men of
Wall street or any other street , who
hold responsible positions , will be of
"To every man comes temptation at
some time or other. No warning will
be Impressed on his mind then , If he
has not the strength or desire to re
sist It. Every case la entirely differ
"Who am I that I should give advice
to others ? I committed an error
and I took my medicine.
"If an employe is going to steal ,
why , he's going to steal. That's ail
there is to it. It is human nature ,
Man cannot change the laws of nature ,
and ho cannot change other men.
Every man must stand by himself.
If he does wrong ho must suffer.
"There are plenty of examples for
'warnings. ' If these are not heeded ,
mere words and platitudes will not be
heeded. No man knows what he may
do until the occasion arises. Honesty
or dishonesty is entirely a thing for
each man to work out for himself.
That's all there Is to It. "
Alvord was nlono on his estate , on
the outskirts of Columblavllle , In Co
lumbia county , Now York , when he
was seen. This is n few miles from
tho'city of Hudson , not far from
Stockport. There , a half mile from
Lho nearest neighbor , Mrs. Alvord had
the now homo built Just before her
husband was released from Sing Sing.
It was said that , she borrowed the
money from her brother-in-law , Wil
liam Alvord , ex-sheriff of Columbia
county. Here , rake in hand , Alvord
Now G2 years old , unkempt and un
shaven , haggard faced , and with
nerves that compel him to bo ever
moving , Alvord Is far from the man
who was known In Canflold'a club
house at Saratoga as "Alvord , the
In those days Alvord weighed near
ly 300 pounds , now little more than
half that. Then he was fashionably
dressed , now he slouches about with
little attention to his personal appear
"Money Is not everything , " he con
tinued. "It is far from everything.
Contentment Is better than wealth.
It IB not true that I am wealthy. I
have nothing. Everything here Is In
Mrs. Alvord's name. It Isn't much ,
but It IB home all I have. "
The bank was paying Alvord $3,500
a year. Remarking at the time on
the largeness of his theft , Alvord ex
plained : "Yes , It Is a largo sum , but
when you live at the rate of $1,000
a week , It doesn't take long to dissi
pate n fortune. "

Althought Night Patrolman O'Brien
denies that theie Is any foundation
whatever In the rumor that a stabbing
had been committed In one of the re
sorts In the east portion of the city ,
county authorities are persistent that
there is some truth in the rumor.
From good authority , it Is stated that
a Stanton visitor was the victim of
the affray , but up to this time local
physicians declare they were not call
ed upon to attend any victims which
would answer a description of having
been In such an affair. Patrolman
O'Brien declares the rumor started In
Madison where many other rumors are
afloat , among them being ono that two
negro women are raiding Norfolk gro
cery and department stores. "Nor
folk Is the quietest town in the state , "
says Mr. O'Brien. "Why at night you
can hear a pin drop. " The stabbing
affair , however , Is being quietly In
vestigated and It Is believed the au
thorities are anxious to get to the
bottom of the matter.

Father Buckley's Point.
Norofiok , Neb. , Aug. 1C. Editor
News : In Saturday evening's edition
of your paper you gave an account of
an Interview I had with Rev. H. C.
Stuntz , pertaining to a lecture deliver
ed by him "On the Far East" at the
chautauqua , Friday afternoon. The
line of argument pursued between
Rev. H. C. Stuntz and myself , led mete
to ask him the following question :
"How explain the discrepancy between
your account of the Philippine friars ,
and that of President Taft , who al
ways spoke , In the most favorable
terms of the friars whereas your state
ments would lead one to believe they
were a bad class of people ? " I also
asked him , "Who was the greater au
thority , Mr. Taft or you ? " To this ho
replied : "Take your choice. "
I have no hesitation In selecting Mr.
Taft as the more competent autl orlty
In the matter. His official , intlmato
and long dealing with the question
constitutes him an authority , that can
not be very easily overthrown.
In n lecture delivered by the presi
dent in Vlllanova , Pa. , June 18 , 1910 ,
he clearly outlined the policy pursued
by the friars in their dealings with
the Philippine Islanders. After hav
ing stated that the Philippine Island
ers are the only Christian people in
the orient today , Mr. Taft thus ex
pressed himself : "That was due to
Philip II of Spain to Le Gaspo , but
chiefly to the Austrlans , the order
of friars , or the barefoot friars , the
Dommicans , the Franciscans and the
Jesuits. They exercised very little
force. If any , and brought about a con
dition in the Islands that you will
search history to find a parallel for ,
so little blood was shed. They taught
the natives agriculture , became their
parish priests , and carried them on In.
a peaceful Christian life. "

Chautauqau End * .
John R. Hays , C. S. Hayes and Z.
H. Bateman were appointed as a com
mittee Saturday evening , to organize
a local chautauqua organization for
next year's program. Many pledges
were passed through the largo audi
ence , both Saturday and Sunday.
They were liberally signed and another -
other good program next year is said
to be assured.
The chautaqua program was ended
Sunday night after the concert given
by the New York Ladles' trio. A
largo attendance enjoyed the music
both afternoon and evening. The lec
ture Sunday afternoon by H. W. Seara
"Tho Taffy Man" was good.
Saturday night , Luclan Follansbee
lectured on "Genius and Gumption. "
Mr. Follansbee's lecture was almost a
memorial day address and many wera
the references he made to the stara
and stripes. Although ho said more
patriotism and loyalty should be
taught in our schools , to prepare the
coming generation to grapple with
"anarchy , which Is threatening ua , he
did not believe the patriotic spirit waa
dying out. as has been declared by
some people. The coming generation ,
he said , should be trained toward tha
wave of reform which la now sweepIng -
Ing the country as they were trained
to patriotism toward our flag. If the
stars and stripes and the flag of Great
Britain were crossed , declared Mr.
Follansbee , there would be no more
fear of the yellow peril. The world \
would be christianized.
Senator Clapp of Minnesota gave a
political speech Saturday In which he
denounced things as they are , all along
This year's program has been a good
