. "A certain theatrical troupe, after a
dreary and unsuccessful tour, finally
arrived in a small New Jersey town.
That night, though there was no furor
or general uprising of the aud'ence,
there was enough hand-clappfcig to
arouse the troupe's dejected spirits.
The leading man stepped to the foot
lights after the first act and bowed
profoundly. Still the clapping con
tinued. When- he went behind the scenes he
saw an Irish stage hand laughing
heartily. "Well, what do you think
of that?" asked the actor, throwing
out his chest.
"What d'ye mean?" inquired the
"Why, the hand-clapping out there,"
was the reply.
""Yes," said the Thespian, "tbc-y are
giving me enough applause to show
they appreciate me."
"D' ye call that applause?' inquired
the old fellow. "Whoi, thot's not ap
plause. Tuot's the audience killin"

A man returned to his native villago
after having emigrated to Kansas
some 20 years previous. He asked
about different villagers he had
known in the old days, and finally of
the town drunkard of his time.
"Oh, he's dead," was the reply.
"Well, well: dead and buried is he?"
"Nope; they .didn't bury him."
"Didn't bury him!" exclaimed the
former resident". "Well, then, what
did they do with him?"
"Oh, they just poured him back la
Sheer white goods, in fact, any fine
wash goods when new, owe much of
their attractiveness to the way they
are laundered, this being done in a
manner to enhance their textile beau
ty. Home laundering would be equal
ly satisfactory If proper attention was
given to starching, the first essential
being good Starch, which has sufficient
strength to stiffen, without thickening
tlie goods. Try Defiance Starch and
you will be pleasantly surprised at the
improved appearance of .your work.
' Revenge's Furious Appetite.
He who. from a natural sweetness
and facility of temper, should despise
injuries received, would doubtless do
a very great and a very laudable
thing; but he who, provoked and
nettled to the quick by an offense,
should fortify himself with the arms
of reason against the furious appetite
of revenge, and, after a great conflict,
master his own passion, would doubt
"less do a great deal more. Montaigne.
The extraordinary popularity of fine
white goods this summer makes the
choice of Starch a matter of great im
iwrtance. Defiance Starch, being free
from all injurious chemicals, is the
only one which is safe to use on fine
fabrics. Its groat strength as a stiffen
er makes half the usual quantity of
Staich necessary, with tiie result of
perfect finish, equal to that when the
goods weie new.

Prom the old log meeting house
arose a chant, sweet echo of a deter
mined past, the music history of
Anglo-Saxon fortitude. The preach
er had not yet arrived. Hencath tlu
trees sat the wise men of the commu
nity; and when old Lim Jucklin got
out of his wagon, conducted his wife
to the door and came walking hack
with his hands behind him, a young
fellow well trained in manners arose
to give the chicken-fighting oracle a
seat. He sat down, with his back
against a tree, put his hat on the
ground beside him, uttered the neces
sary commonplaces incident upon
meeting his friends, saw a needed rain
coming within two days, and then
after a "short silence remarked: "I
see that a jedge over at Raleigh in
grantiif a divorce says there don't ap
pear to lie any doubt of the fact that
marriage is a failure. From time to
time within the past few years I have
hearn somethin' about this here fail
ure on the part of marriage, but neve
put my mind down on it till one of
our own jedges rendered his decision
In the matter."
Then 'Squire Hrizintine spoke up.
"And does it seem to you, Limuel.
that he has got anywhere close down
to the truth?"
Out of his hat tlie old man took his
!red bandanna handkerchief, wiped his
brow, and, spreading the handker
chief across his knees, replied that it
was a matter that needed some little
investigation. "Take the case of
little Sammy Peel." said he. ".Mar
ried the widder Buntin. that weighs
290. Don't appear to htvc been a
failure in his case." The boys laughed
and 'Squire Hrizintine blew his nose
with a loud snort, for it was known
that not long after the death of his
wife he had paid court to the widow.
"It is a question." old Lim contin
ued, "that is a aggitatin of society, and
has been I ieckon since the Lord first
llung open the front door of time.
And it is a subject that so many folks
are related to one way or another
that it sorter makes a feller feel sad
to think about the opinion of the
jedge over at Raleigh. But the only
way to find out whether or not a thing
is true is to start an aggitation and
keep it a goin'. There are thousands
of men that stand ready to come for
ward and swear that human life it
self is a failure, and has been ever
since old Noah drank too much of his
own .wine. There is a way to Iook
at everything and make it a failure.
The Gospel itself is only a success in
spots. And I reckon its putty much
that way with marriage. If the right
spots ain't found it ain't the fault
of the institution of marriage, but is
error in the jedgment of man."
"But how about the jedgment of
woman?" 'Squire Hrizintine put in.
and the boys smiled, for in the neigh
borhood it was well known that the
'Squire and his wife had with their
dissensions awakened the echoes of
many a dark night.
Old Lim sat smoothing his hand
kerchief across his knees. "Well."
said he, "with woman the question of
marriage comes up before she has
jedgment enough to make a good de
cision. We know that at 20 a boy
is nothin' but a boy. but we expect
a girl at that age to be ripe enough
to take chaige of a household. At
20 I had jest about sense enough to
take a rabbit out of a trap. Didu't
have enough to keep out of a trap
myself. We talk about many virtues,
but, after all, looks, eyes, smiles and
hair are the main points to be consid
ered in the question of marriage, and
as these things appeal more to woman
than to man, she is in the way to
make more mistakes. Common sense
ought to tell women that good-lookln'
men don't make the best husbands:
but that's wheie the trouble lies the
lack of common sense. A curl hangin'
low over a forehead and a sort of tune
to a laugh counts more with the aver
age girl than the multiplication table.
And there may be more of showy love
in the curl, but it won't build as many
fires in the kitchen stove. Any feller
smiles when he goes a courtin. but
the feller that is most useful to ?
community and at home is the one
that smiles some when he's at work.
The happiest time of a girl's life
is when she is engaged, for then she
has the dazzlin' promise of somethin
that ain't likely to be fulfilled. The
hero that she is goin to, marry gig
gles and titters like June water
a babblin' down over moss-kivered
rocks, but if weighed and put up for
sale in the market of common sense,
he wouldn't fetch as much as a side
of bacon. The trouble is she takes
him on looks, and he takss her the
same way. and after they have been
married awhile they find that their
minds are total strangers."
"But how would you remedy it?"
some one inquired.
"I can't remedy It and I wouldn't.
It would be an interference with
natur'. In the days of old it was
thought, and it is still alive in the
minds of smart men. that'a good big
part of the human family was born
to be damned, and I reckon it was in
tended that a certain number of mar
riages were intended to be failures.
And marriage is more of a failure
now than ever before, because there
are more people to get married. The
more folks the more misery. If a
man and a woman do the best they
can and their marriage turns out bad
it can't be helped. Divorce is a
blight on society, ii s true, but to
live with somebody tlat ain't suited
to you is a blight on the mind and
the heart. We may have a good many
lives to live; of that we can't tell,
but we do know of one, and when that
one is ruined, why we are in what
the black bear said to the trap a
well, you know what sort of a fix.
AH the wisdom now known to man
might be poured out on marriage and
wouldn't help it much. I know it's
called high morality to talk against
u:orces, ana divorces ao snow a
loose state of affairs, but what's to be
done? Divorce is most scandalous to
them that don't want it. Two enemies
livin together ain't likely to have writ
iu their hearts: 'God bless our home,'
and a home that the Lord don't bless
ain't a comfortable seat for society.
"I knew'of a high-spirited feller that
married a tight-strung woman over in
the hills of Tennessee. And it wan't
long till they fell out. She called him
a liar and he swore that she never
had uttered a truth, and that was
goin' fur, considerin' of the fact that
she talked a good deal. I. think she
flung somethin' at him, a butcher
knife, mebby; and he 'lows: 'If you
were a man I'd 'know how to treat
you. I'd challenge you to fight a
duel.' 'Well, don't let the fact that
I'm a woman stand in your way,' she
spoke up. 'I'm as good a shot as you
are. and if you want to settle it on
that basis I'm your man.' So they
agreed to fight. They did. She shot
him in the shoulder. He declared that
he was satisfied, and she 'lowed that
she didn't have nothin' to complain
of. Then she yoked up the steera,
hauled him to the house, nursed hiu
till he got well; and ever ifterwaro
they lived as happy as two doves. It
Ecems to me that one of the reasons
why there arc more divorces now is
on account of the fact that children
have gone out of fashion. Men and
women arc shirking the responsibility
of a family and that develops a weak
ness of character. I have seen many
a man burdened with a big family, but

to him that it
might be good for

picked up right

and he did Jiot
know that there
is an injunction
that you let not your left hand know
what your right hand doeth.
And yet in acquiring his wealth it
must be said tnat he had unwitting
ly carried out the spirit of that pre
cept, for many of the doings of his
right hand were of so questionable a
nature that he had kept his left hand
in darkness for very shame. But (to
speak fair) if the right hand had
known of some of the deeds of the
left hand it would have blushed. Oh,
they were a good pair of hands, those
hands of the multi-millionaire! Ever
faithful to his material interests had
(hey been, but now he was afraid
that his chance of heaven would be
meager if they did not together act
as almoners of course, with a prop
er "barker" before them to trumpet
forth their good deeds to an admiring
So Jabez Holtite sent for a re
porter and said to him: "What is the
best way to let the world know that
I am not merely an acquirer ofwealth,
but that all my money-getting has
had but one object, the final giving
away of all my goods to the poor?"
The reporter said: "You might ad
vertise on our financial page to this
effect: 'Jabez Holtite, . millionaire,
wishes to divide his wealth among
the really deserving. Address him at
the iosto(fice. naming amount desired
and giving your oath to requite him
by spreading abroad the good report
of his generosity.' "
Jabez looked troubled. "I am afraid
that would be too widespread - in its
effect." said he. "I expect to live
many years, and did not intend to
give ou the impression that I wished
to divest myself of my means as a
man divests himself of his shirt at
once. 1 thought I would be willing
to give something like a thousand dol
lars to some well-known institutiqn,
and I am willing perfectly willing
to talk about it to the extent of a
column in your paer."
The reporter grew an inch. "Mr.
Holtite," said he, "if you are actually
going to give a thousand dollars to
any sort of a charitable institution, or
even to a college, and will promise to
let no newspaper hear of it' before
we have a chance to give it publicity,
we will be glad to devote our" whole
first page to it because it will be in
the nature of absolutely startling
news. You have never given a cent
to any one in your life, as I under
"Never, unless I was sure 1 would
get two cents in return," said Jabez,
with a proud smile.
"Then 1 suggest that you give your
money to seme institution that is
already heavily endowed and that will
thus be worthy of "your unexampled
generosity." And the reporter named
such an institution.
Then he took down in great detail
all the facts in the life of Jabez as
seen by the miHionaire himself, get
ting thereby a picture of the man
that no one else in the wide world i
I never saw one that wasn't more to
be envied than the man that had no
children at all. There ain't in this
life nothin' more to.bfe deplored than
a childless old age. I'd ruther be
a haungry dog shut up in a church.
More men have been saveH by their
children than by all the moral lessons
ever printed. And women well, a
woman that tells you she don't like
children, and then proves it by her
acts, may blaze with beauty and raise
more money for the furriers than any
body, but in my opinion she ain't as
much to be admired as a dish of sour
milk skimmed three times. Last
summer a woman came from town
out here, and when I saw her pullin
of her skirts back every time a child
came near her L said to myself that
she must be powerful neat, but when
I saw7 her kiss a bull pup I 'lowed to
myself I'd ruther it was the pup than
me. Well, some things can't be
helped. Man started off wrong some'
time ago, and has been goin' faster
and faster ever since, it seems like.
But an old detective in Chicago told
me that his experience proved to him
that 90 per cent, of men were honest.
1 asked him if his town wan't made
up mostly of the other ten per cent.
He didn't say nothin' more and I
didn't apologize. Yes, we are on the
slant, but youngsters that are tod

would have painted, and worth at
least six columns to the reporter.
The reporter was of a grateful dis
position and, knowing that this inter
view would spell success for him, he
wished to make a return to Jabez. and
being not only grateful but also wag
gish, the form of his return was as
"Mr. Holtite," said he. "charity is
charily, and a good deed much blown
about penetrates to remote places and
is put to (he credit of the doer of the
deed: but if the good deed can be
made to bear immediate fruit, if your
bread conies back on tlie return
wave, so to sueak, you will probably
stand for a long time on the beach
chucking loaves into the sea."
"Go on," sa:d Jabez; "I am listen
ing." "My. idea is." said the reporter,
"and I hope you will take my frank
ness in the proper spirit, that the
public would as soon believe that
William of Germany was a puppet, as
that you, Jabez Holtite. would actual
ly give away money, and 1 think
there are thousands in this great city
who would gladly give a dollar apiece
to see you in the act"
"Ah. I know 1 am a wonder as
an acquisitor," said Jabez, mentally
"Sure." said the reporter. "Xqw
why not 'hire Madison Square garden,
erect a platform in the middle of the
arena and give away a thousand dol
lars every li-nur on the stroke of the
clock? You might also give them a
15-minute talk on how to become a
millionaire on a capital of two cents
and an atrophied conscience. You
catch my point?"
"Why, certainly." said Jabez. "Young
man. you have a brilliant future."
The whole world knows the result.
Madison -Square garden was crowded
every hour at a dollar a head.
And every hour, at the stroke of the
clock, Jabez Holtite gave to well
known and influential institutions a
thousand dollars and a 15-minute talk
worth a thousand more to persons
with the proper consciences, and he
felt that it was well worth giving
when the gate receipts were so large.
He came to think that it would
have been better for him if he had be
gun to give sooner in life, and his
mouth grew less hard solely from the
human feelings that surged up in his
heart every time he handed out a
check for a thousand dollars and real
ized that the garden was packed at a
At the end of the week he had given
away $50,000 and had taken in
$500,000, and then, to show that
his regeneration was genuine, he hired
the garden for another week and
doubled the price of admission,
doubling also his gift.
And to show- that he was no ingrate
he gave the reporter a ser son pass
and allowed him to interview him
every day. And at times he could
hear his own heart beat, and then he
knew that he had become generous. And
his reputation as a cheerful giver was
almost as great at the end or the sec
