How did they find you put? Why do they push you? . r “ You allow little for my merits. ” “ No, I allow all possible for the tol- erntion ofi ’ the WhirloCk8, but ^m still ut'a loss.

I was not born in the purple. I must stop eating if I stop wojkiug, and I am not a genius. Therefore, there must be some unu sual reason for matiirn that would put Whirloek out of the,running. The stern parent would write the ■ daughter and aunt the next day announcing his unalter able disoition. But that worthy young son heard .it all and showed himself a chip of „tho old block by writing a letter which ho . mailed that night after a bold midnight ride to the nearest railroad station, — The latter was to Sfhirlock and exposed the whole scheme. He came to me in the gloomiest despair. There wns no hope, for if Madge received,the final words, either through the mail or Dulow, she would never go back on her promise; ‘ See here, Whitlock, ’ I a/id to him, -Ynnrry ] the girl tonigh'f She cannot get the letter bofoTiMnorning, “ ‘ But Dulow is sure to come.* “ ‘ He ’ ll only got in there over my dead body, provided you arrange for the. wedding. ’ “ This put new life into ’ Whirlook and he rushed for the aunt ’ s. He told both the women in a determined way that it must be now or never, giving Miss Frowley- just enough light to make her ftnxiouft.^Q;£iey:carripd the, aunt right off tier feet and she won completely when Whirlook sjig-' gested that no one but the man ^ho ‘ happened ’ to be her favorite minister should perform the ceremony. “ We crowded matters ns rapidly as consistent with'having the aunt stay with us. She lived ou ’ a.retired etfeet nnti early iii the evonihgl took up my duty at the front gate as guard, with an understanding that ’ Whirlook would pin his handkerchief in the windpw^.when thtfeontract for life wns- completed., “ Minutes never seemed so long to me, though. .. I • had a friend slowly drlylag ft cab back and forth. I-did not know Dulow, but when I saw a man hurrying from the nearest street car trac k. I had no doubt as to wh n it ‘ Mr. Dulow ?* I stdd^tt — he — hp . proached, ‘ and with a message fdi ‘ Miss Frowley ? ” V ‘ A very important one, ’ he an- swered; ~ — — — — -- — “ ‘ Right in here, ’ I announced, as I my being patronized by the Whir- looks. Well, there is. I^oes that lay your onribsity? ” “ Only whets it, aiid you know it, - Bo considerate for onco-Tiud forego the pleasure of tormenting me. ” “ Just make a note and' an pxample .

On the world at large tiic Olympic games have, of course, exerted no fluence as yet, but r~am profoundly convinced that they will do so. \ Ma; I be permitted to say that this was j M reason for founding , them- Modern athletics need to Be unified and puri ­ fied. Those who have followed the renaissance of physical sporta in thii century know that discord reigns su ­ premo from one end of them to the other. Every country has its own rules ; it'is not possible even to come to ah agreement as to who is am . amateur, and who . ’ is not. All over tho v world there is one perpetual dis^jute,'. which is far ­ ther fed by innumerable' weekly, and even daily, newspapers. ' In this de­ plorable state of things professional ­ ism tends to grow* apace. Men give up their whole existence to one par ­ ticular sport, grow rich by practicing it, and thus deprive it of all nobility, and destroy the just equilibrium of man by making tho . muscles . pre ­ ponderate over the mind. It is my belief that no education particularly in democratic times^ can be good and and coniplete without aid-\ of athletics }. but athletics, iu order to play their proper educational role, muHt ’ bo based on perfect disintereeted- ness and the H-iutirnent of honor.

Special tanks will be coneft'hotod for it on each vessel, and from these tanks pipes wifi lead to tho furnkees, nttd the oil will bo conducted thereto through these pipes. From the pipes it will be ejected by steam in a spray, and the resulting flame is very bright and absolutely smokeless.;- — So — far — ao — -its -r. boating- power is concerned, it is declared to be greatly, supertoY tnlcoal. Another feature which has served to 'recom ­ mend it is its cheapness. The.duties of the stokers'arc also greatly- light- ned by its use. ; Tho time saved up steam s ^pother, consideration, that f carried great weight, for the effect of tho flame is instantaneous, and the high ­ est pressure can.be obtained almost immediately. The value of this power to a man-of-war is almost inestimable. whjj& ‘ the- advantage to torpedo boats is also verr^great. — Philadelphia Reo- ord.

'K^The air of a room may be purified in two hours by sotting iuBido o! it a wide mouthed<pitohor tilled with pure cold water. In three hours at most it will have absorbed all the respired gases in the room, leaving tho air purer by that mneh. but the water will be too filthy to use, if one but knew and could see what it has taken in. It is estimated that a common pailful of ice-cold water will absorb in six hours one quart of carbonic acid and several pints of ammonia from themiiv For the purpose of purifying' the air the water is all right, but don ’ t use it to wash in , or to drink! For those purposes use fresh water, just drawn, or use from vessels that are always covered either by motel or chinq, or by several folds of cloth, like a clean towel.
