I started from Nashville tenn., with two horse team proposing to drive own to Shelbyville then ascending the Cumberland plateau and working toward East Tennessee. Not far from Shelbyville i overtook a Man on horseback Whoso mount had gone lame. a asked me where i was going and when Al told him he said he believed be would leave his horse and proceed on Ray Wagon. To accommodate him and a for company i agreed to take him and at the next farm we came to we stopped to leave his horse. While he was bickering for the animals keep we heard the tread of a loping horse up the Road and a girl on its Back came Burry us along. The Man who was to join me on seeing her looked annoyed and went toward her evidently with the intention of meeting her where they would not be overheard in what they said. They talked Foi some time the Man apparently trying to persuade her to do or refrain frown doing something. was evidently not making much headway with her and finally they came toward me. A this is Nancy Parks a he said. A she would like to join us go Over the plateau and take a train at Bridgeport for a i would be very Happy to have her a i replied. Tho girl dismounted and the Man led her horse away to the barn where his own had been put and left him there. Miss Parks was an excellent specimen of the poor White girl of the South. She wore a sunbonnet a Calico dress and coarse cowhide shoes. Nevertheless there was something of wild Beauty about her. Her Cheeks were a Brown and red her hair an eyes Jet Black the hair being Cut Square just above her shoulders. She climbed up into the rear of the Wagon mounting by Means of the wheel and some bags of Coffee. Tai Finan Golf 3$ beside me. By the time we had reached the foot of the Cumberland plateau he had told me Tho Pic name was Barker and that he was a northerner looking for a place in the South on which to Settle. This was false As i afterwards Learned. was in quest of something very different from this. As for the girl he intended to Tell me the truth about her saying that he had spent a Day or on. Her fathers farm. She had taken a sudden fancy to him and when to parted with her she had made a great ado at the separation with the result that she had followed him. No said he did no to know what to do with her but thought when a favourable Opportunity occurred he would a a shake he r. Tho Story about her taking a train at Bridgeport was a Blind. I did no to care what either of them did so Long As i was not mixed up in their affairs. Barker whenever we stopped at a farm or in the Road to talk with any one asked a Good Many questions about the country the soil and the people bearing so far As i could judge upon Bis own settlement among them. To asked different persons with whom we chatted about a Man named Elijah Hanks. No one seemed to be inclined to give any definite information about or. Hanks some saying they had a very slight acquaintance with him others that they did no to wish to know him at All. Barker seemed to be trying to get a description of Hanks by which he would recognize him. I noticed that when Barker inquired of one person about Hanks the Man gave him a Quick suspicious glance. Meanwhile Nancy Parks sat in the Back of the Wagon munching some apples she found there and of which i invited her to partake. She seemed to be satisfied in simply being with Barker and i could not see that she took any interest in what was going on. Soon after we got up on to the plateau we met a Man whom Barker stopped to ask questions about the country j. A. Kernodle practical Tinner slate and Sheet Metal worker and sanitary plumber now located at Parksley and respectfully solicits the patronage of the Public. Stove repairing a specially. Lightning rods furnished. La us1, >jubbuuli0 aurut and put up at a reasonable and the people and if he knew of a. Good farm for Sale. The Man replies Price. In a keep sonorous voice. I happened estimates cheerfully fur to turn As he aia so toward the Back wished and satisfaction guar tube Rill go. Man Barker was questioning seemed to thrill her. She listened intently to every word he spoke. This time Barber confined himself to inquiries about general matters not seeking information As to special persons. Elijah Hanks was not mentioned. We drove on and i turning for another glance at Nancy Parks saw her eyes fixed intently upon the Man we were leaving behind while his face was turned toward us with an expression of wonder. Then she pointed in a the direction opposite to the one to were going indicating that he was to go Back. The Man stood irresolute for awhile then slowly followed us much to the girls apparent discomfiture. Coming to a Little place called Tracy Barker said he thought he would leave me giving As a reason that he had heard of a farm for Sale in the locality and he would look it up. Since it was evening i concluded to go no further that Day and driving my team into a Wood. I a harnessed my horses fed them made some Coffee and prepared to spend the night there. Barker who by this time seemed to repose in a fill King a. \ flour. A a ask for it when you i want the Best. Ii e. Megosh amp Bros. I Baltimore. Confidence that i did no to care to have told me that the girl was going to sleep in a House la Tracy and when she awoke in the morning he would be missing. I made no reply to Phlp. I was hot especially prejudiced in bin favor and there was something about the girl that Drew me to her. I confess i had come to believe that some game was being played Between the two and i had sufficient curiosity to be interested in it. There Are so Many possible 1 complications in any affair in which a woman is concerned that i had no Faith in any theory i formed with re Gard to the couple. It appeared however that they were deceiving each other. About 9 of clock Barker and i turned in. The night being pleasant i did no to sleep in the Wagon nor did he. I slept a few hours when something awakened me. Barker was standing near with his Back to me. had something in his hands and although i could not Seo what it was i know by a series of Clicks that it was a revolver which he was examining cooking it and lowering the Hammer to revolve the Chambers. Then he put it in his hip pocket and taking another pistol from his Ether hip he examined that in the same Way. next looked at his watch trying to Moke out the time of night then stepping stealthily moved away from the bivouac. My curiosity in Tho Little ploy that was going on so near me impelled me to get up and follow the Man. look a read leading southward Down toward a Little town at the foot of the plateau called Jasper. I dared not walk near him lest my Steps he heard. I therefore kept about a Hundred Yards in his rear. I was in danger of losing him but i would rather do so than have him know that i followed him. I finally did lose him but soon again caught sight of him or what i supposed was he. What was my Surprise keeping my Eye on the figure before me upon its passing Over a Rlue in the ground and showing its Silhouette against the sky to see the garments of a woman instead of a Man. Had Barker taken on a disguise had i lost him and fixed my gaze on another an explanation soon developed. Against the sky i saw two figures. They looked to be Side by Side but one was in rear of the other. I could Spe the legs of one the other from the Waist Down was Bell shaped like a woman a dress. As i looked the Man turned to the right and entered a Wood. Then i saw the woman do the same. I entered the Wood at the Point As near As i could determine it that they had entered and soon found myself in a Ravine. It was dark As pitch in there and i could not choose my Steps. Occasionally i would catch a faint sound As one of the persons i followed dislodged a Stone or broke a stick under foot guided j Yeuit a sound of another kind. It was the crack of a pistol or Rifle. All was still for a few minutes. Then i heard some one hurry Post me up the Declivity but i could not see who it was. I stood listen log till i heard a groan coming from below. Then i went Down As rapidly As i could in the dark and after going some distance stopped and listened. Another groan nearer guided me and moving toward it i soom came to an opening in the Trees admitting enough Starlight to show me a body lying on the ground. I Bent Over it a the same time asking a who Are you a a a in a Barker. Is that you Quot a yes its i. What a the trouble Quot a a in be been a badly Hurt a a i think in a done Fott. I Musi Glare you some information at once. In a John Archard a United states government detective employed to Hunt up these illicit Mountain whisky stills and bring those who run them to Justice. In be come Here after a Man who is running a still. Soma one who has got on to what i was after has followed and shot a whom do you suspect a a a in a at a loss to know. It May be that Nancy Parks suspecting that i was intending to a shake her watched and followed me not knowing anything of my Mission and thinking my object to be simply to get rid of he Quot a very different theory occurred to me. Judging from what i had seen i surmised that in Nancy Parks he had happened on one who loved the Man he was after. I reckoned that Man to be Elijah Hanks. Likely the government Man had led Nancy to size him up for what he really was and to feel assured that he proposed to arrest her Lover. She had pretended to be infatuated with Archard and followed him to keep him in View till she could warn her Lover. Having failed to make Hanks understand her when she saw him from the Wagon she had stuck to the Man who was trying to get him followed him and shot him just before he was about to raid the still. This turned out to be the True version of the Story. But i kept my knowledge of it a secret and Nancy Parks was never accused of the shooting. The government Man recovered but was never convinced that Nancy was not infatuated with him. Value of cinders. A few years ago great heaps of cinders piled up often being dumped into Low places where new Earth was needed. Manufacturing concerns wore glad to get rid of the accumulations. But now the cinders Are in great demand for use in the foundation for Cement and Concrete work. They form a perfect drainage material and it has been found that Frost acts very lightly on them. Furthermore Concrete work in which cinders Are used is said to be of extreme durability. When cinders Are ground and mixed with Cement the mass becomes very hard.

Brilliant inventors who reaped pitiful rewards. Died in poverty and want. Some men of Genius who were doomed to end their Days in obscurity a while their fruitful ideas made millions and Fame for others. Now and r. Man is born whose brain fair., /.,>�?� with inventive Genius. , sire srm from him and All lies of science Are mastered with 1 min i Effort. Such a. I Rovic i. William Martino one of Axxe i l Liliant italians who left their native land to seek con Une in r. It e. N. Or by. Martino came to a g my and his name is most familiar i in the mar Tini Heury Rifle the tue Shblock of which was one of his numerous inventions. It is an irony of Fate that Martinovs name should go Down to posterity solely through a warlike invention which he himself thought Little of when his greatest work was done in the cause of peace for Martino was the discoverer of the process for converting Basic slag into manure a discovery which has put millions into the pockets of Cormi manufacturers but from which lie himself it is stated never reaped a Penny. Tho fluted rib for umbrellas a new process for the extraction of Nickel from its Ore r. New development of Plati noid a immensely important in electric work und a Brilliant invention for the reduction of Gold Ore these Are Only a few of Martinovs discoveries. And yet a was so lacking in Bulner capacity that in spite of his extra Luary output of valuable ideas he d Quot it a in 1903 a comparatively poor obscure Man while doze of other. Lave been made Richer by fab Genius. In 1860 the chemist Lenoir patented a motor driven by an explosive mixture of a a and Gas. used electric ignition a tallied from a Battery and a Ruhmkorff Coil actuating a sparking plug very similar to that in use in the modern motor. The system of valves by Means of which the suction of the Piston Drew in the charge of Gas for the next explosion was also designed by Lenoir. In 1862 he actually produced a car which if crude was similar in All respects to that in use today save that he employed Coal Gas instead of petrol and this he actually drove himself through the streets of Paris. Yet for reasons similar to those which caused the failure of Martino he never received the Reward of his Gen thirty years later to produce the first of the practicable Auto cars. Lenoir died in 1900, poor and unknown. Three years later in 1903, the George Shergold came to an end in Gloucester workhouse. Shergold originally a Shoemaker was the inventor of the safety bicycle. built a machine of this order in the year 1876, the front wheel of which was Twenty seven inches and the rear wheel Sonie thirty one inches in diameter. In 1900, when it first became generally known that the Man whose invention had made millions for others was As poor As when he had cobbled shoes a Public subscription was raised and for some time an allowance of 5 shillings a week was made to Shergold. But the funds became exhausted and poor Shergold ended his life in the workhouse. How Many people have Ever even heard of Scheele yet this poor swedish chemist was perhaps the greatest discoverer of facts that the world has Ever known. We always hear in England that Priestley was the discoverer of oxygen. Yet Scheele made this most important of All chemical discoveries simultaneously with Priestley. And it was Scheele who discovered chlorine Gas. Chlorine is perhaps the most important of All gases in commercial Ehe mistry. It is the great bleacher that gives us White Linen or White Straw hats. It is also the Best disinfectant known. It is essential to the manufacture of the great pain killer chloroform and it is used extensively for the extraction of Gold from its ores. Chlorine a value to the world has been incalculable yet Scheele the Man who discovered it lived hungry and died a pauper. Professor Gore died a comparatively poor Man yet Gore was the inventor of the modern safety match of the method of electrode position commonly known As electroplating and of Many other processes which have put millions into the pockets of manufacturers.

There has Boon complaint that every Good Story gets accredited to Mark Twain without his having really deserved it but professor Archibald Henderson in his Book a Mark Twain Points out that actually Many of the Best known common sayings first created by Mark Twain Are very rarely credited to him. His Saj Ings in a pud do head Wilson s Calendar a such As a the cauliflower is pot Hing but cabbage with a College education Are generally known As written by Mark Twain but there Are others of which this is not True. Some of his Best sayings Are apropos of the cheerful custom of lying for instance a truth is our most valuable Possession. Let us economize a never Tell a lies except for practice is not so Well known As the More popular a when in doubt Tell the professor Nenderson comments that of the latter Maxim Mark Twain declared that to never expected it to be applied nto himself. It was for other people. When he was in doubt himself he used sagacity. Perhaps his Best summary is a never waste a lie you can to Tell when you May need a cat Clivord emanating from Mark Twain is a be virtuous and you will be another is that a there Isnit a parallel of latitude but thinks it would have been the Equator if it had had its there is something peculiarly american in his warning to girls not to i m a a that is not to excess. To pro Sor Henderson Mark Twain made a remark Likely to rank with the Best of his sayings now that it has been published. Professor Henderson was advised before undergoing a surgical operation a console you reel with the reflection that you Are giving the doctor pleasure and that he is getting paid for of the hundreds of Twain sayings none is better known than one often attributed to Andrew Carnegie a put All your eggs in one baskets and then watch that making shot. The Tower process used Only for the smaller sizes. The Tower process of making shot was invented by William Watts a plumber of Bristol England in 1769. His Tower was a a built by sawing a Square Hole in the Center of the various floors of his House and locating a Well in the cellar into which the globules of molten Lead dropped and were instantly cooled and hardened. Watts secured a Patent in 1782 and sold his London rights in 1800 for $48,g65. His Tower is still in use although it has been heightened by the addition of several stories. The Lead when molten is poured into a Sieve like receptacle 120 feet below form the shot which Are then passed through a polishing grader. They Are then spilled from a Hopper on to an inclined plane the perfect shot running on a second plane while the imperfect drop through an opening Between. The shot pass Oyer four series of planes and Only the perfect reach the last plane. A larger size than bbb cannot be made by this process. The larger sizes including shrapnel Are made by two different processes. In the medium size a wire of the proper material is fed into a machine which mashes it into a ribbon shape and punches irregular formed shot. The largest Are made by pouring the Metal into Long Bullet holds which in Cooling form irregular shot. The various sizes Are then placed each by itself in gins which Are revolved for six hours when the shot come out perfectly smooth Globe. Walked the burglar. His last residence.

An in stand that was probably in use 3,400 years ago is exhibited in a Berlin museum. It is of egyptian make and is supposed to belong to Thyl eighteenth or nineteenth dynasty of somewhere about 1500 b. C., although its real age can be judged Only approximately. It is made of Wood and has two compartments an upper one provided with two holes one for Black and one for red Ink and a lower one for holding Reed pens. The Black and red Ink Are certainties for some still remains in a dry condition within the receptacles. Another ancient in stand is supposed to have been intended Foi the use of a Schoolboy. It would Cep mainly hold Ink enough for a schoolboys needs for it has no fewer than four Ink holes. Both in stands were found at Globe.
