It was the nucleus of or. Evans vast Fortune. The tramp Boulder. An unfortunate likeness. The Friendship that existed Between Tommy Simpson and Bob Scatterty was a trifle one sided. Figuratively speaking. Tommy Simpson prostrated himself at Bob scat Terlyn a feet and allowed the latter to trample upon him which he. Scatterty. Did without the slightest compunction. They were both Young Uku Simpson being the elder by a couple of years and they both worked in the big drapery establishment of messes. Trickett amp Chiffon. Simpson was a weak kneed under sized Little fellow with Light hair no eyebrows to speak of and a nervous manner his hero was of a very different Type. He was sturdy and thick set and impudence lurked in the Corners of his Little Blue eyes. In his own estimation he was a a Deuce smart fellow Monteh Erkow up to snuff and a Pinch or two Over a Etc. Little Simpson had that admiration for him which a Junior often has for the Captain of his school and he constituted himself his a a fag a did his errands posted if letters and Lent him Money. They spent their holidays together appearing for a week at the Seaside in yachting a aps and pea jackets. No one however mistook them for sailors. On sundays they walked in the Park smoked cigarettes and passed remarks on the girls. Now had anyone told Tommy that the Day would Dawn when he and Bob would pass each other in the Street without so much As a nod he would have scouted the idea with scorn. Yet so it came to pass. The cause of course was a girl. Her name was Sally Sally lower and she was employed in the millinery department. She was an attractive Damsel a blonde Small and Graceful with a creamy complexion a waspish Waist and a fondness for flirting. A the Young men at Trickett amp Chiffon s became her slave and risked their situations in reckless fashion by attempting to Exchange sentimental nothings with her during business bouts. When old Trickett reproved her for carelessness they Shook their fists at his Broad Back and said it was a shame. Like their Fellows the two friends fell victims to the Little milliners charms. Tommy a passion was a secret one. He would indeed have liked to confide with his Friend but he was afraid the latter might treat his confession with ridicule again his passion was quite hopeless. Sally laughed quite openly at him. On the other hand she a tried graciously upon Bob who Wool her with a boldness that soon won her fuck e heart. In a word they became engaged. A a she a a Nice Little thing is Sally a he observed condescendingly when he communicated the intelligence to his Henchman a a it a a pity she Hasni to a hit of Money. Id always made up my mind to marry a girl with a her face is her Fortune. Bob a the miserable or. Simpson murmured sentimentally. A Eye is but her face wont Stock us a shop in the High Street. In a a go ahead Chap. Tommy and if id Only a bit of tin id leave old Trickett a tomorrow and Start on my his Friend was silent. He too had had these dreams he too had thought of a Little shop with Sally and himself snugly ensconced therein. A yes and in a going to have a Cut at the old lady a two thou a a but what about Sally a a Why 1 mean to have a split with Sally of in be got it All fixed up i mean to do it gently in a Way that la never make her suspect the real facts of the Case and you must help a me a a but 1 done to quite see a a you soon will a responded his Friend a you soon will. You see its our Polly a birthday next week and we re having a Little party in the evening. Sally a coming and one or two other girls and miss Mck Eaxie la be there of course. A now. My Little game is this. I shall pretend to he vexed with Sally and flirt with miss Mck. Naturally this la make Sally jealous for she a a girl of spirit and Shell try and pay me out by flirting with some one else with you. Then we shall have a Row. 1 shall refuse to admit myself in the wrong so will she. There will be a. Coolness Between us and we shall gradually Drift apart. What d be think of it he a half a dozen Young ladies in their sunday frocks and their hair delicately curled sat in mrs. Scat Terlyn a front parlor looking at the family albums and sustaining an intermittent conversation with half a dozen Young men in Black Coats and White ties who might have been Happy had they known what to do with their hands. Miss Lowe looking her Best in. A White Blouse and a Blue skirt sat on the sofa waiting for Bob who had not yet appeared. Miss Lowe assumed an air of distinct patronage toward her less fortunate companions and when her Lover at length entered she smiled confidently. He however. Went straight to the heiress a red haired girl with a. Face spotted with Many freckles and in no Way remarkable for Beauty. He devoted himself to her until Tea was announced and then he gave her his Arm in his most engaging manner. The fair Sally fumed with anger and poor Tommy who was allotted to her found his position anything hut enviable. Although he exerted himself to his utmost to Shine his partner paid Little heed to his efforts her attention being concern rated on her Lover who was constantly laughing and whispering with mias Mckenzie. After Tea there was singing. Miss Mckenzie played and Bob turned her music for her. Then there were games and in every one he chose her for his partner. Sally noted All this with rising temper. She was not capable of maj Strong emotion for she had frittered away her heart in endless flirtations. Nevertheless she bit her lip ominously. A i can t think what s the matter with Bob a she remarked at last As if half to herself. Tommy was silent. It wrung his heart to see her suffer. A a he a not spoken to me once tonight a she went on. A do you know remarkable evidence of glacial influence in new Jersey. Countless thousands of years age vast stretches of glacial deposits came sliding across the stale of new Jersey mounted the Palisades pushed their Way across the Hudson River scoured Over Manhattan Island an it Slid out into the Atlantic Ocean w hither they disintegrated and Sank into the deep or perhaps glided on u the other Ocean Shore. But in their Onward March these glaciers left indestructible evidence �1 their grinding stride and to Day ail along the Palisades the trap rocks and boulders Are worn smooth where the mountains of ice and Sand passed Over them. In some rocks Are deep scratches All pointing eastward and showing which Way the glacial deposits drifted. There is the evidence mute but indisputable. To the careful observer there Are numberless other evidences of the presence of glacial influences in the past but none Are More convincing than the tramp Boulder that has final in settled Down in the Woods in the heart of knit Wood Borough. There it sits a towering mass of Rock weighing per haps two Hundred tons and resting upon three Points which in themselves find a Purchase on a Fiat Rock that is part of and common to the character of Rock which composes the Palisades. But. Strangely enough and to the wonderment of geologists the tramp Boulder is red Sandstone from the Jersey Hills Twenty five Miles Inland an 1 the Pedestal i. Metamorphic the or soft Granite. Around this marvelous Monument have grown Trees that May. Perhaps be a Century old and they have completely hedged it in while the Roch itself has stood where it stands to Day for thousands of years. On the Pedestal or that part of it which is protected from the action of the elements can be seen the deep ridges and scars made across the Flat surface by the great grinding pressure of the body of ice and Sand that passed Over it countless years ago when new York was ice and Snow Clad and. The world was a desolate waste in a state of chaos. This tramp Boulder has cause geologists much wonderment and i regarded to Day As one of the finest specimens Ever left in the Wake of a Glacier. It is equally astounding As though an explorer should find the Hull of a Steamboat in the Sahara desert. The Only Way it could get there would be through some great convulsion that had landed it from the sea to the heart of the Inland Yor journal. A creat Industry. Few persons have any idea How great the bicycle Industry in this country has become. Not Only has the manufacture of bicycles for the Home Market reached immense proportions but our Export Trade in bicycles is a very big thing. During the nine months ended september a to i do the exports of passenger cars carriages and. Bicycles from the United states amounted in value to $,.574,223. Against $4.828.02��?T during the corresponding time in 1898. Of these exports bicycles and parts of bicycles alone amounted to the value of 100,000. Or More than double he value of the exportation during the stammered son a me. A no a Tommy colouring guiltily. Sally tossed her head. A Well. In a sure i done to care a she said. A i did no to know he was so fond of red hair and freckles before. Funny tastes some people have. However. One sunday evening when Tommy j in a. Not going to bother myself and ill was turning out for his now lonely a let him see it stroll an Arm was thrust familiarly a she was As Good As her word. From through his. I that moment she was a changed girl. That Arm belonged to or. Scatterty. I her ill temper was Flung aside. She a a in a off duty for an hour or two a he laughed and chattered in the gayest explained in answer to his friends fashion. She rallied or. Simpson on look of inquiry. A Usai Iyo a gone to his quietness and encouraged him to Church with her married sister. I m j talk in a word she flirted openly calling for her later. Come along for i with him and sent him into the Sev a walk in the Park i want to have a tenth heaven of Delight. Bit of a talk with j ten minutes later they were sitting i a few Days later a Young Man. Wear on a Bench by the miniature Lake fug a Light suit of a Large Check Pat watching the children feed the swans. A Tern and carrying a Gladstone bag. Or. Scatterty pushed his hat from his containing among other things a brow toyed with his cigarette and dug j Complete nautical costume took a tick Little holes in the gravel with his a j it from London to Margate. The Lacea. Young Man was of the a a loud Type. He his companion saw that something i puffed a rank Cigar with a swagger what a the matter with him. Or Simp a corresponding period last year. These exports Are not included in. The steel schedule to which they might Well be Long. If so included they would Mark More distinctly the wide margin be tween exports and. Imports of Iron and steel products. The imports of these products have already dwindled to a comparatively insignificant figure. The Best bicycles Are now made in this country and it is probable that our enterprising manufacturers will invade the foreign Market still further. At present our exportation of bicycles is almost entirely to great Britain Germany. France Canada and Australia. But there Are Many other countries where bicycles Are largely used which offer a. Tempting Field to our bicycle makers and they will probably build up a big Trade in those countries in the Early journal. Was troubling him. A nothing wrong is there Bobby old Man a he said at length. A Why not not exactly what you might Call or. Scatterty replied slowly a but the fact is. Tommy old pal in a in a bit of a or. Simpson sucked the head of his stick. His hero had often been in a bit of a fix before and they generally came rather expensive to Tommy. A a it a about Sally a his Friend went an. A you see my people Are always telling me in a throwing myself away. She a a Nice girl a a very Nice girl but she ainu to exactly in our walk of life and her people Well we be had them to Tea and their manners Are awful a a one can to have everything a or. Simpson remarked relieved to find that no Call was to lie made on his slender purse a and in a sure Sally a Quot of. Sally Sall right shed pass As a lady anywhere. There a Only one thing she a Short of. And that is a bit of Cash. As in be said before. Id Al a avs made up my mind to marry Money until i met her. In a a practical sort of Chap. There a no Blooming sentiment about me. I like a girl with expectations or a snug Little Fortune in Mil ways or Gasworks. Beauty ainu to everything. In a just beginning to find it a a you you done to mean to say you re thinking of breaking with Sale with miss in it we a or. Simpson asked in a tremor of agitation. A Thomas you be hit a or. Scatterty said. A a that a just what i am thinking of. A a but but Why a a a done to you excite yourself old Man. You keep your hair on and listen to me. I did no to Tell you that while my sister Polly was up in Cumberland she made friends with a miss Mckenzie i did no to Tell you either that miss Mckenzie a a bit of an heiress in her Way. She lives with an aunt and this aunt was in the Barkley railway Accident last year and got �2,000 damages. Well Polly chums up with her As girls will writes to her and asks her Over on a visit and she a coming on Quot coming on saturday is she a repeated the Hewl Derid or. Simpson the cure for poverty. In the Century there is an article on a the causes of poverty by the late Francis a. Walker. General Walker says in conclusion a at the beginning i warned the air. And joked affably with the porters. Rea Jer at i had no panaceas to offer. The evening following the same no single it go Mph it i Sovereign cure for Young Man came Back to town. Yet j the woes Arul yes of humanity. We Back to town. Yet was it the same he had lost his a a swagger air. His head drooped dejectedly. He no longer joked with the porters and he let another passenger Jostle him with Lamb like meekness. In the Street he ran against a Little Man with a portmanteau who was hair must Strain out of the blood of Tho race More of the taint inherited from a bad and vicious Pool before we can eliminate the poverty much More the pauperism from our social life. The scientific treatment which is applied to physical disease must be extended i to mental and moral disease and a raring to the station. The Little Man apologized though he was in no Way to wholesome surgery and cautery must blame and then uttered a startled sex enforced by the whole Power of the claymation. State for the Good of All. Popular Edu Why. Bob he tried i thought cat ion must be made More sensible you were at Margate practical and useful. The House the Young Many whose name by wife a arts most be taught to girls in the Bye was scat Terlyn betrayed sump Toms of Dis composure. A a in i be come Back rather unexpectedly a he said. A a there so there a nothing wrong is there a the Little Many whose name j was Simpsons inquired anxiously. A yes. There is a Bis Friend answered \ frankly. A come along and ill Tell you All about the two went into the adjoining j hotel. said or. Scatterty. In the privacy of the deserted smoking room a a it Sall off the old woman would t take to me at any Price. She said if Lizzie married mesh it leave her a sixpence. And All because in a like a Young Man she knew who mar j ried a girl for her Money and then left her she says she a sure i should do j the same to or. Simpson s nervousness had the schools and there the boys must learn to use hand and Eye and brain in a close and vital co operation and co ordination. Yet still we have to await with patience the slow sure action of time the All healer. The balance of social forces has definitely turned to the Side of the less fortunate classes and the course of events now runs in their favor and no longer against them. Meanwhile let philanthropy continue its Noble work in alleviating the afflictions which cannot be wholly cured and in binding together Rich and poor in ties of sympathy and Mutual value of five legged frogs. Five legged frogs dead and stuffed i Are Worth $21 apiece according to a in French court s decision. A fish vender creased to an alarming degree.

The fish vender thereupon sued the druggist for Fil Ching the Frog and Pale and the beads of on is brow. A a in in a very sorry. To Quot he murmured. A but i shall make it up with Sally j again now a or. Scatterty remarked. The Little Man sprang to his feet. A a what a the matter with you a his companion demanded testily. He might Well ask or. Simpsons manner was extremely strange. A live something to Tell you. Bob a he stammered edging toward the door. A Well out with it Quot or. Scatterty retorted impatiently. A a it so its about miss lower about Sally a or. Simpson went on his hand grasping the Doc recovered 105 francs York . Kilts. Between 150,000 and 200,000 Kilts Are made every year. The kilted regiments of regulars militia and volunteers number some 17 battalions. As the military Kilt is Only provided biennially this represents a Supply of 7,000 a year. How the american dentist acquired immense wealth by a hint from the French Empress a strange bit of history. Or. Thomas w. Evans an american dentist who had lived for Many years in Paris died the other Day at his Home in the French capital leaving an enormous Fortune valued at #35,-000,000. In addition to the amassing of this great amount of wealth or. Evans had Long been an International character by reason of the part which he played in the escape of Empress Eugenie from the parisian mob after the abdication and capture of Napoleon. Or. Evans had completed his memoirs just previous to his death and that incident will no doubt be fully described by his own pen. It is extremely doubtful however if he has permitted himself to dwell upon the secret of his wealth or rather upon the incident which started him upon the path to Fortune. Or. Evans received the nucleus of his Fortune from a a a tips Given by no less a person than the Empress Eugenie herself. Of course he enjoyed a most lucrative practice and he has placed crowns in the Mouths of a great Many persons who also wore crowns upon their Heads. Napoleon the Empress Eugenie to Tinea Victoria the Prince of Wales emperor William and the Sultan of Turkey were Ali numbered among his patients and it is Safe to say that his fees were by no Means Small. No american it is said Bas Ever enjoyed so firm a footing in Marlborough House. He was a great favorite with Empress Eugenie and he afterwards demonstrated his loyalty by acting As her personal escort to England during the troublous times of p 7o. One Day she said to him Quot doctor i presume you a re saved considerable Money from your income a or. Evans acknowledged that there were a few francs to his credit in Bank. But she persisted and finally Learned just How much he was Worth. At that time Baron Housemann was planning How to pull Down and rebuild Paris. The Empress had in her Possession a map of the future capital showing the full plan of operation. This she placed before him. The various improvements were All carefully noted including the projected to s de Boulogne. A it will in Beautiful a cried the doctor. A it will be the most Beautiful City in i a a stupid a exclaimed the Empress. A do you think Only of the Beautiful have you no Eye to the pecuniary advantages which this offers you a then she showed him another map showing where she herself had in invested in land. The doctor took Hla Cue. He invested his entire capital in real estate. He purchased plot after plot of ground on the site of the Bois de Boulogne. The magnificent Avenue was finally projected together with other vast improvements which completely transformed Paris. Real estate increased in value tenfold. Or. Evans acting upon the a a tips received from the first lady of the land awoke to find himself one of the Rich men of Paris the remarkable Success of this american dentist in numbering among his patrons the greatest potentates of Europe was due to his profound discretion it is said of him that he never betrayed a Confidence a new York Herald. Obliteration of the old uncompromising orthodoxy has set in which Means the ultimate absorption of the sect. Even now rare As is the old garb on the streets where it was such a common sight not so Many years ago the assertion that the society 1� diminishing would meet with doubt and hesitation. We Are so familiar with the Quaker he is so necessary and potent a Type in Philadelphia that we would not accept the warrant even of statistics yet now that the visible limit has been reached what can we do but awake to the change we see few bread brimmed hats and drab bonnets where we once saw Many of those who weat them the most Are old and trembling if there Are Young quakers How Are we to recognize them not by their dress at any rate except in so far As plainness of Cut and sobriety of color still Rule in the taste of friends whether wealthy or in moderate circumstances the distinctive costume 1� being Laid aside with Many of the distinctive customs. And Why because the society is losing its control Over its younger members because its rigid rules no longer suffice to hold in Check the human spirit with Ita unconquerable love of Freedom this is the common explanation and the one desired by those who love Thomas Wharton in Lippincott a. Blind Jennie. Why a a Lead Pencil ? once pieces of Lead were used for marking and we continue to use the word though Lead is no longer a part of various pencils. History has failed to record the name of the Genius who gave the world those most useful Little instruments. We have heard All about the discovery of Burnt snuff and the sewing machine and the typewriter and All that but the inventor of the Lead Pencil has evidently gone Down into the Shadow of oblivion a a unkept in honoured and a i have to laugh at the queer ideas some people have about pencils a said one manufacturer. A you will scarcely believe it but the opinions of people who know nothing about it seem to be divided Between the melting of the Lead and pouring it into the Hole in the Wood and cutting out the Lead to fit the Hole. A i know a continued the manufacturer a that not one out of ten thousand persons has the least idea of what this Lead is. See Here is a Fine Black powder that is Graphite and costs somewhere about Twenty five cents a Pound. This White substance is German Clay. It comes As ballast in vessels. And All it costs us is for freight. We mix Clay and powder together and grind them in a Mill moistening the mass carefully during the process until the two Are thoroughly assimilated and reduced to a paste that is about the consistency of Putty. Here Are the die for the leads. Into which we press this paste of Graphite and Clay. These leads Are dipped in hot glue and Are placed in the grooves As the blocks Are made ready. When the Lead is put in there snugly and forever the thin Block is glued to the thick one and left to dry and stationer. She lives in a tenement and teaches Bible lessons to the Young. A merry Christmas in the tenements is the title of an article by Jacob a. Rile that appears in the Century. Or. Rile says in one of the Side streets near the East River has stood for thirty years a Little Mission Church called Hope Chapel by its founders in the Bravo spirit in which they built it. It has had plenty of use for the spirit since. Of the kind of problems that beet its pastor i caught a glimpse the other Day when As i entered his room., a rough looking Man went out. A one of my cares a said or. Devins looking after him with contracted brow. A the has spent two Christa Days out of Twenty three out of jail. He is a burglar or was. His daughter has brought him round. She is a seamstress. For three months now she has been keeping him mad the Home working nights. If i could Only get him a Job he wont stay honest Long without it but who wants a burglar for a watchman and How can i recommend him a a few doors from the Chapel an Alley runs into the Block. We halted at the Mouth of it. A come said or. Devins a and wish Blind Jennie a merry we went in in single file there was not room for two. As we climbed the creaking stairs of the rear tenement a chorus of children s shrill voice burst into song somewhere above. A this is her class a said the pastor of Hope Chapel As he stopped on the Landing. A they Are All kinds. We never could Hope to reach them Jennie can. They fetch her the papers Given out in the sunday school and read to her what is printed under the pictures and she tells them the Story of it. There is nothing Jennie does t know about the bible.�?�1 the door opened upon a Low coiled room where the evening shades Lay deep. The red glow from the Kitchen stove discovered a Jam of children Young girls mostly perched on the table the chairs in each others laps or squatting on the floor in the midst of them a Little old woman with heavily veiled face and wan., wrinkled hands folded in her Lap. The singing ceased As we stepped across the threshold. A be Welcome piped a harsh voice with a singular note of cheerfulness in it. A whose step is that with you pastor i done to know it. He is Welcome in Jennies House whoever he be. Girls make him to the girls moved up to make room. A Jennie has not seen since she was a. Child a said the clergyman., gently a but she knows a Friend without it. Some Day she shall see the great Friend in his glory and then she shall be Blind Jennie no the Little woman raised the Vail from a face shockingly disfigured and touched the eyeless sockets. A some Day a she repeated. A Jennie shall see. Not Long now not Long a her pastor patted her head. The silence of the dark room was broken by Blind Jennies voice rising cracked and quavering a alas and. Did my Saviour bleed a the shrill chorus Hurst in it was thereby Faith i received my sight. And now i am Happy All the Day. A unique plea. For the first time in the history of the country says a Denver correspondent the theory of somnambulist has been offered As the sole plea in defense of a Man charged with murder. F. A. Sanchez killed his wife last week. He told the officers who arrested him two minutes after the crime that he had been disturbed by a burglar who had entered their room and killed the woman sleeping at his Side. Next Day he confessed that he had done the shooting and ascribed the fatality to Accident. He demanded a speedy trial and was gratified. His attorney startled the court by pleading not guilty and offering the defense that the shooting was done White the defendant was asleep. He claimed that the prisoner Laboured under the impression that he had been held up on the Street the night before and that the robbers had come to his room. Under this belief he started in his sleep and taking a revolver from under his Pillow fired at the supposed intruders and killed his wife. Or. Tilden was placed on the stand to substantiate the claims and testified that such cases were known As masked epilepsy and that medical science had chronicled several fatalities similar to the Contention of the defense. A woman. First and Foremost woman is Mam a Best Friend because she is his Mother. Second because she is his wife. Because without her he would bal rude rough and ungodly. Because she can with him endure pain quietly and meet Joy gladly. Because she is patient with him in illness endures his fretful nees and Quot mothers him. Because she teaches him the value of gentle words of kindly thought and of consideration. Because on her breast he can shed tears of repentance and he is never reminded of them afterwards. Because she will stick to a Man through Good and evil report and always believe in him. If she loves him. Because when he is behaving like a fretful boy Atud they All do you know at times with no reason in the world for it woman a soft word touch or glance will make him ashamed of himself.
