One would almost as soon expect a jigger Indian ta become a great invent jot as that Mr. Granville T. Woods would be one. His case contradicts one ot the most firmly established soientifio theories—that mechanical gonial is con­ fined to the white races, and so called civilized ones at that. Some 30 years ago a boy went to blowing the belloWB in a railroad re­ pair shop in Australia. Onograndfather was a full bloodied Malay. The other /grandfather and his two grandmothers wero lower yet in the scale of human development, being fall blooded Aus­ tralian aboriginal: negroes, those whom we are taught in our geographies to re­ gard as the most inferior known type of humanity.

He was wealthy and his iather was a large mine owner In the north popu­ lar, good-looking and thought to be one of the best strokes turned out frt either university for some time. Last, but not least, he was engaged to be married at Easter to Ruth Mey nell, as bonnie a lass as need be, with whom he had been in love for some years. It was the afternoon before the great event when the following tele grain reached him: "Meet me, King's Cross, 5:30.—Dav­ enant." Jack was delighted, for it had been a great disappointment to him wlier. his father had told him that business of importance would prevent his wit­ nessing tlie x*ace. When the train glided slowly into the station you may be sure that a cordial greeting was exchanged between father and son. But Jack was startled to see how greatly altered his father's appear­ ance was from what it had been three months before. ...

ITU A A IOYE AND OIL. By Glendower. The road to wealth and the path of love were broadened and illuminated to Clinton Thornville by a little timely advice from a wise old fellow whose business it is to watch current events, ^.nd note their probable effect upon the stock market. Clinton was in love but, like many young men, his pocket was almost as light as bis heart. His limited bank Account, however, did not prove detri­ mental to his success as a wooer in­ deed, he may have been the more im­ petuous on that account, for the girl -on whom he had set his eye was, fort­ unately, the daughter of a gentleman who had been so thrifty that now, at the age of fifty-five, he could, if so •disposed, "crown a youth of labor with An age of ease." Gideon Knowles, the thrifty gentle­ man to whom we have just referred, is a man of influence. He is an active politician, an effective wire-puller, and •even his enemies are forced to admit that his power is so great that "he carries his ward in his p...

PLAYING FOR A LIFE. By H. jtusaell Prerton. Do you mean to say, doctor, tliat you have introduced chess among your pa­ tients?" "Yes. Why not? Some of these poor creatures, although they suffer from various forms of madness, are able at times to exercise certain faculties of mind with a brilliancy that Is really remarkable." "But surely they are not capable of playing a rational and sustained game?" "Oh, yes. I have myself been beaten by a mad patient. Of course, at times, their play is whimsical and erratic but even then, if I may say so, there is often a good deal of method in their madness. It is rather curious that, at the present time, I have under my charge a poor ffellow whose mental de­ rangement is almost entirely the re­ sult of excessive chess playing. He indulged in his favorite pastime to such an extent that it ultimately af­ fected his mind. We do not now al­ low him even the sight of a chess­ board, because anything to do with the game seems to rouse in him the worst ...

lA CHILD'S GRATITUDE. ME A PENNY, ma'am only a penny!" It was a profes­ sional beggar's stereotyped whine, neither louder nor lower than she had heard half a dozen times before in the course of her morn­ ing's occupation of shopping—and the weird, pale face that looked so intreat ingly into her own was in no wise dif­ ferent from a score of other want pinched faces. Yet Miss Fortescue stopped, with one foot yet on the step of her cushioned landau, and searched in her pocket for some stray coin. "My dear Miss Fortescue, you will take cold," said the soft, measured voice of Mrs. Vinton, her companion. "Go away, child, quick, or I will call a policeman." "Don't speak so harshly to the poor little object, Maria!" chirped rich Miss Fortescue. "It isn't her fault that she's poor and forlorn, and this won't ruin ®e!

MISS SABBINA FAIR. sighed Mrs. Fair. ABRINA, this Is O a Oaks, my daugh­ ter," said Mrs. Fair. The young man, who was paying his first call on his neighbors, whose acre of land ad Joined the western border of his im­ mense farm, could hardly repress a smile. Plain as he looked, he had read more than most of the folk in Longbridge, and knew Milton by heart. 'Sabrina fair, listen where thou art sitting, under the grassy, cool, translucent waves, In twisting braids of lilies knitting the loose train of thy amber-dropping hair,' he silently quoted from "Comus." Aloud he said: "Yours is quite a striking name, Miss Fair." "Well," Mrs. Fair said, "I always did hate Jims and Johns and Marys and Sallys, and I wanted something extra for my first girl. Just then we had a doll-fair at the church, and the min­ ister's wife. Mrs. May, named the dolls. "There was one lovely doll, and some one said: 'Why, her hair is amber color.' 'I'll name her Sabrina, then,' said Mrs. May. "It struck me as a lov...

MAJOR'S DAUGHTER. By Edward Hatton* "Paying dirt" had been struck all along White river, near Buford, Colo­ rado, and the rush there was im­ mense. The riff-raff from the country for miles around soon drifted down near Buford, many of the gold-seekers even coming from as far as California. I was one of the roughs, but I was not quite as crude as mcst of my asso­ ciates. Upon my arrival I found established, near our camp, a military-looking gen­ tleman, «of dignified appearance, ener­ getic movement, and quick, measured tread. His keen -dark eyes seemed to take in a fellow at a glance, especially if he caught one of them staring at his daughter, a grave and refined lady of .about twenty-two, who acted as his housekeeper. We had dubbed him the "major" on .account of his military mien, and we afterward learned that he was a wid­ ower, and had really been a captain intlie Confederate army. At the close of the conflict he had but a few hun­ dred dollars out of a once large for­ tune. Dis...
