'J'hcro have been grave doubts expressed
On the ( inlet ns to the right nnd title which

dcnrcd by the following letter received from
the doughty George , written from Itushvlllo ,

"It Is a sad story , " said nn old railroad
jnan , ns ho coughed two or three times. The
group of traveling mon who had been hilari
ously telling some funny experiences u few
moments hcforo quieted down.
"I was runnln' old 1-12 , " ho continued , "and

The old man stopped. IIo swallowed mys-
tcrlously a number of times and drew his
norny palm across his eyes. Tne proup of
listeners only moved for a llttlo and held
their breath.
"I couldn't stop , boys. It was no use. The
flyer was heavy , nnd we was goln' nearly

to push In that throttle and slap on the air

Two "bad men from Bitter creek" went to
the Kynn , St. 1'aul , n day or two ago , and
roKlstered as lr. ) Engle , Fort Smith , Ark. ,

doctor \vas an elderly gentleman of quaint ,
old-fashioned manners , who had n pleasant ,
easy way with him , calculated to Ingratiate
himself Into the good graces of almost any
ono. Ills partner was n younger and rougher-
lookliifr man , who had the general appear
ance of being a dead game sport. Time hunp
rnther heavily on their hands , and they In-
vltod a couple of drummers to go up to their
room for a a.ulct game of cinch.
After playing' cinch for a short time , n
penny unto edition of the national game was
proposed , and the doctor produced a box of
pennies to use for chips. Things moved along
smoothly until ono of the drummers ran Into
the doctor two or three times and found every
tlmo that the medical man from Arkansaw
\vasloadcdforbcar , Thocliinax came when
the other drummer gathered up his cards
after tnodoaland found himself sitting behind -
hind a spade Hush with a typewriter nt the
head. A peaceful smile ofconlldoncohovorcd
iirouml his face as ho declined to bo helped to
liny cards , and ho aimouncau his intention to
"play these" with the nirof n man who IMS a
month's lioanl paid In advance and credit at
n laundry. The gentleman from Arlumsnxv
hesitated for a moment and finally decideil to
tarrydrawlnjr two cards. Thopentlcman from
Arliansaw opened the ball with 1 cent "Just to
show thnt thcro wcro no hard feelings ; " his
partner raised It 70 cents nnd the drummer
smiled us ho pally saw both Lots nnd raised
them Sl.DO. When It came around , to the Ar-
kansaw man ho raised tlio whole party $ r ,
which the drummer promptly called , and.
began toylnpr with the pot , but turned palo
und looked very wary vhcii the Arkntisaw
man laid down three trays and a pair of
small , but cftcn useful , doucC3. , Two min
utes later two wild-looking drummers were
ponrliiR a tale of woo Into ICibboo's small but
sympathetic car. nnd gesticulating lllto a
windmillvhilo they explained how they hod
boon robbed.
A conplo of detectives were summoned and
the winners were taken to the municipal
court on ncompluintsworn out by ono of the
losers , who gave his iinino ns Uobon. Tlio
otlier Joined tbo Johnson family. The
winners hired a lawyer nndvcro poing
to light the case , -when a proposition
to scttlo was made nnd accepted.
Tbo doctor took out a roll of bills nbout the
size or a loaf of bread , and the drummers
breathed once moro as ho handed them the
amounts that ho had won from thorn.
Then another verdant knight of tbo grip
came tip and meekly Intimated that he would
like that f 10 which'ho had donated to thodoc-
tor down In Cedar Uupids the other day , but
the doctor Intimated that t Si era bad been so
much t.roublo lately about Interstate com-
mcrco affairs nnd original package cases that
be did not fcol like taking the chanocs of
selling an Iowa claim in Minnesota , Attor
ney O'Hcllly dismissed thocasoaftcrthoslick
strangers had paid the costs , and then the
doctor turned to ilr , "Wnito , who was pres
ent , representing the hotel , and said :
"Soo hero , I want you to do men favor. I
hnvo been meandering around tills wicked
world for many a year and most o ( the people

after paying their bill and expressing their
regrets for the unpleasantness , thny sought
another abiding place to wait for the con
genial atmosphere of Derby day.

ana countless carriages with hosts of rela

who in lifo dwelt in mansion elegant , clothed

but ono who enjoyed only an humble yet comfortable

aorvicrablo raiments , and commanded a moderate
orate yet satisfactory income.
The persontowhom woroferis thodoccasod
Benjamin Franklin l olxotto. "What ho did
as high , dignitary of the secretorderof U'tiai1 '
B'rlth , how praiseworthy his career was as
representative of our country , has nirendy
been told to you. It remains for mo yefc testate
state the work ho did for the promotion of re
ligion. Much of the honor conferred upon
him , may have been bestowed , nnd many o"
those present may have attended because o
his former high position in the aforemcn'
tioncd lodge and our government , yet Iwouli'
venture to assert that most , If not all , of th <
honor , and most , if not all , of those present ,
were called forth because of his accomplish'
ments in religion , if by the term religion ii
understood the nobility of the practical lifi
of man and his infludnco as an example tc
other men.
In the profession of law. which ho followed ,
ho always manifested such an unsurpassabli
spirit of honesty , that ho adhered faithfully
to ono of the tlrst principles of the universally
accepted religion. In the discharge of hi :
duties as official of our nation la foreigi
. landsho evinced such faultless conscientious
ness that he curried out a second principle o
the universally accepted religion. In the
encouragement , counsel and help ho extended
to the dejected , despondent and needy , with
out any regard to creed , nationality or race ,
bo revealed such unsurpassable sympathv
that he obeyed a third principle of the uni
: versally , accepted religion. In the welfare of
the Sanitary Aid society of New York , that
looks to the promotion of health nnd the pro
o longation of life , ho displayed such peerless
enthusiasm that ho practiced a fourth prin
ciple of the universally accepted religion.
And so wo could cite one instance after
, another to prove that ho was the idcnl man ,
as far as wo could expect anyone to ho.
over engaged in something that would
result either lu his own spiritual elevation erin
: in the public weal ,
As great as ho was a humanitarian , so
great was ho also a Jew. Kvcry single In
junction which his father imposed upon him
ho executed with willingness and zeal. Like
patriarch , prophet and sago of old , ho labored
for the promulgation and preservation of his
Ho devised Judicious plans for the manage
ment of the IVnaill'riththat looks to the pro
tection of the wife and children of a deceased
brother. Tie assisted In the establishment of
the Cleveland orphan asylum , that offers
shelter , care and love to the homeless and
friendless orphan. Ho hastened tothoroscno
of his oppressed people in Houmaula , gaining
for them , through his ttulefatiguablo efforts ,
civil and religious liberty. Ho gave his
unlimited support to the Hebrew tcchlcal in
stitute that helps In the practical education
of the young'nien and women of our faith.
Ho edited a literary inagazlno by means of
which he disseminated far and wldo n knowl
edge of the lofty truths preserved by Israel
for ages and of the literature it owns. Ho
\vosu very tictlvo member of a congregation
thus helping m the malnteuauco of an insti
tution devoted to the promotion of our ration
al and literal faith.
Benjamin P.Polxottowas kind , sympathet
ic , charitaulo ; Benjamin F. I'clxotto was
ambitious , intelligent , learned , and thus ful-
tilled his mission both as man and Jew.
Descended Irom a grand father who wai a
preacher , and from a father who was a phy
sician , beseems tohuvoluherltedapronencss
to look to the highest ideals , to self-Improve

Death in the inevitable end of all. How
ever well this fact Is known to man ho never
th theless U moved to tears as often as ho Is
forced to encounter Its stem reality. Once
nioro It has invaded socrod precincts to
the departure of Benjamin F. I'clxotto
from life. A family has been deprived
of a loving husband and father , a coun
try of a loyal citizen , n religion of a firm ad-
CO hcrant and humanity of a great benefactor.
ilr That his demise Is the cause of universal
lamentations his acts such tlio
its ; as conscentl-
itso ous discharge of nls duties toward his wlfo
o and children ; his nobiorepresentation of the
United States In foreign lands , his editorship
of a literary magatlno devoted to the cause ol
Judaism , his support of the Cleveland orphan
asylum , and his help extended to suffering

to school and laid it down hy the side of
the stovo. At noon ono of the scholars
brought some milkanil , the fawn was
fed with all the tenderness shown to a
child. Prompted by'a ' fancy for the great
pootsho named her young captive Byron.
The young buck thrived under the ten
der care of Margaret , and today it is
fondly attached to the country school-
marrn. Byron Is the young lady's con
stant companion. His love for his mis
tress Is ns great ns was the proverbial
littlclaml/s that followed Mary. Byron
goes with Margaret to school and
browses on the hillside near by and rests
in the woodland until school closes , vyhon
ho cantors from his place of abode and
bounds to the side 'of Miss \Vatorinan ,
icks her hands , and'w-alks ' homo with
her , liis proud and prancing actions
clearly demonstrating tno joytit affords
him. . *
Pot Byron hns no' fear of dogs. In
fact , when he Is around the canines glvo
him full sway. Otherwise he would give
them a clip with his sharp hoofs. IIo
has sent many a poor 'dog away yol ping-
with pain. Once upon a time llyron was
badly wounded by a hunter's bullet. Mar
garet , however , nursed him Laekto goot
health. The girl was much distroshot
ever the accident , nnd there uro many
people in that locality who say that the
accident caused an estrangement be
tween her and her sweetheart , the sono
a neighboring farmerwhom she licensee
of attempting to take the llfo of her pet
buck. However correct this vorslon muj
bo , it Is a fact that about the time Byrot
was Avoundod Margarot.and her beau hut
u quarrel.
Miss Waterman finds it necessary to
shut her pot in a pea.attlnios when she
goes to a neighboring village. Durlnj
her absence tlio animal Is unhappy ant
forlorn. Upon her return ho bleats with
joy , llclcs her hands and romps about as
though ho hud been imprisoned for j
month. Singular ns it may appear , the
animal becomes jealous if his mistress
bestows affection upon a child when ho
is around.

A Habblt's Foot Elected Grant.
Five minutes after the official canvass
of the mayoralty vote was completed at
the city hall and Mayor Grant's vote
was returned as 23,109 , there was a big
commotion in a down town business of
fice where sixty employes had made a

Six of the sixty who had wagered on
23,000 for the mayor divided the big pllo
ofsilvor and greenbacks. '
Ono of the bix , a good natured six-
footer , slnppcd the other on the back in
exuberance of enthusiasm. "Stick tome
mo and you can't loose. I crossed
Scott's name with this , and ho couldn't
win. " .
The six-footer yanked a rabbit's foot
from hia trousers pocket. "You see
that ? " ho cried. "That is the foot of a
rabbit that I shot at midnight In a
graveyard down south. It never failed
to work yet when I brought into piny. "
And everybody went out and drunk to

Frank Gillette tells of a ronmrknblo
flfilit ho witnessed botwcon n largo
tnrnntuln nnd a colony ot red nuts , says
n l-'ort Worth , Tex. , vorrcspotftlout ot
the St. Louts Globo-Dumocrnt. Ho has
just returned from Jnck county , whcro
In tlio canyons nnd hills ho htid been
hunting. .In tlio afternoon of ono day ho
oncoitntcrcd a lurpo spccliniMi of the tar
antula which abounds In Texas. IIo did
not tlnro tp touch or even go near tlio
deadly Insect , which was about llvo
hiehos In length nnd of a rather groan-
Ish hue ; but lie pot n long stick , ono end
of which ho split , nnd by a uuxterous
manipulation secured the tarantula be
tween the prongs , which , coming together -
gothor , held it tight enough to prevent
Its escape , but not tight enoiili { ; to in
jure it. Ho repaired with it ton hill
of largo red nnta which ho had passed
on Ills trntnp a short ttmo before. In
the middle of tlio hill ho deposited
tbo tarantula , releasing it from its
imprisonment. It was rut her a chilly
day , and but few nuts wore out of their
holes. 15ut these fo\v gathered around
tbo stranger , looked at it closely for u
brief moment , and then , ono by one ,
hurriedly entered the different small
holes within which were their domiciles.
The tarantula meanwhile was motionlcbs ,
occasionally blinking its small , sharp
eyes , but not deigning to glunco upon
the small insects.
Hut presently came forth the ants In a
body. Although the tiilo-bearcrs had en
tered the hill by different holes , the war-
riorn all Issued from the same one. First
came a lurcro ant. and then the others so
closely iipo'n the heels of ouch other thnt
the line looked like a blood-red string.
Thosidoof the tarantula WIVH about four
inches from whore the ants issued
from the cone , and they nuulo
straight for the enemy with
out loss ot time. The largo ono In tlio
load pounced upon ono of the furry legs ,
and the others got their teeth In as near
by as possible. There seemed to bo an
alin t unending string of the ants , ana ,
inaminuto and a half , tlio entire body
of their victim was covered with them.
After that the tarantula did not movoa
limb scarcely. At llrst It attempted to
pull away tlio leg attacked by the ants ,
but finding It fastened it shoved along
with the disengaged legs , moving per
haps an inch anil a half : but the re
mainder of Its bodv was soon covered
with the insei'ta , wldcli devoted part of
their force to holding the victim hi
place. The tarantula only killed three
of the ants. These throe ventured with
in the roach Of the jaws of the tarantula ,
which closed its mouth with n sun ] ) , end
ing tlieir existence instanlor.
In four minutes the tarantula wns
dead. There was not n sign of blood
anywhere on its body , though in many
places were evidences of the fray. Near
the head wove scars showing where the
ants had billon deepest. Shortly after
it closed its eyes and allowed it $ head to
sag many of the ants withdrew , but
when there was a convulsive jorlc of ono
leg , the ants ran up again , and this time
roumtneil till every sign of animation
wan gono.
Then the nnts removed the corpse. It
was a heavy body to move , hut they nc-
coinplinhotl it. On the rather lint top
of the hill the pull was hard nnd long ,
but on the liKMlno It was easier. Ar
rived nt the foot , tlio ants diverted the
corpse and returned to their homos ,
some enteringIho holes , others resum
ing1 tlio work they had been Intorniotcd
11 when the tarantula came among them.

The maiden fair of olden time who
used to wnvo her white handkerchief to
the knight departing to light her bat
tles , would open her eyes very whlo If
she could see the handkerchief of today ,
says the Ladies' Homo Journal. The
most fashionable are made of crepe llsso i
with nn embroidered udgo nnd in every
color Imaginable , from brilliant scarlet to
palo Nile green , and from jot black to
clear white. Some very unique effects are
produced by contrast of color. The black
handkerchief is usually n square of silk
muslin , with a full frill of line black lace
about It. Any girl can easily make ono
of these for herself. For overy-dny use
the white handkerchief of lawn , with a
narrow hcmst itched border , a very nar
row ono , and n line frill of lace Valen
ciennes not half an inch wide , about It
Is preferred. Kluborato monograms nro
