4, f i \ -i I y HELPING THE BLIND. "Please help a blind man," said a fellow with green goggles, as he held a tin cup toward the line of people is- suing from the Union depot last eve- ning. "I always help the blind," said one of two young men who were pass- ing, and he stopped and took out a five-dollar bill; "can you get a quarter out of this?" "I guess so," said the blind man, fishing out a handful of change and counting out $4.75. "Well, John," said the benevolent young man's companion, as they walked on, "you're a bigger fool than I took you to be." "Am 1?" said John, "Yes, you are; that fellow's no more blind than I am. How could he tell that was a five-dollar bill?" "Blamed if I know," said John, innocently; "but he must be mighty near-sighted not to see that it was a counterfeit." A Natural Mistake. "How Is the foreign nobleman get- ting along whom you are teaching English?" "Fairly well, except that he always misplaces his prepositions." "How for instance?" "He told me the o...

FOR OLD PEOPLE. After reaching the age of forty the human system gradually declines. The accumulated poisons In the blood cause rheumatic pains In the joints, muscles and back. These warnings should be promptly relieved and seri- ous illness avoided by using the fol- lowing prescription which shows won- derful results even after the first few doses and it will eventually restore physical strength. "One ounce compound syrup of SarsapariUa; one ounce Toris com- pound; half pint of high grade whis- key. This to be mixed and used in tablespoonful doses before each meal and at bedtime. The bottle to be well shaken each time." Any druggist has these ingredients or can get theuj from his wholesale house. V V * V cr A Risky Thing. "I think I'll go home."

"It seems to hurt you a lot more than it hurts me," the wounded man said, phlegmatlcally. They wanted to put him to bed, and he refused. "Put me in the armchair near the window."

Murray Sinclair and his gang of wreck- ers were called out to clear the railroad tracks at Smoky Creek. McCloud, a young road superintendent, caught Sin- clair and Ills men in the act of looting the wrecked train. Sinclair pleaded In- nocence, declaring It only amounted to a ■ small sum—a treat for the men. McCloud discharged the whole outfit and ordered the wreckage burned. McCloud became acquainted with Dicksle Punning, a girl of the west, who came to look at the wreck. "Whispering" Gordon Smith told President Bucks of the railroad, of Mc- • Cloud's brave fight against a gang of crazed miners and that was the reason for the superintendent's appointment to his office. McCloud arranged board at the boarding house of Mrs. Sinclair, the ex-foreman's deserted wife. Dicksle Pun- ning was the daughter of the late Rlch- . ard Dunning, who had died o...

Business depression is. of course, ao countable for the hardships many working people undergo at intervals, says She Boston Globe. But business depression is not the cause of the per- manent army of the unemployed which, in London for instance, Is never disbanded.
