THE COURIER HYPNOTIZING A DESPERADO. Millionaire Southmead's Recent Experience. B7 CLARENCE HERBERT NEW. JOHN SOUTHMEAD is known to bo worth ten millions. Be yond that figure his wealth is a matter of conjecture to those who interest themselves in prominent men. Like many other millionaires, his manner k unaffected, and he is not at all difficult to approach. These facts were largely responsible for the dangerous situation in which he recently found himself placed. He had just returned from lunch at the Lawyer's Club, and was alone in his private office, when a card was handed him by one of the clerks, who said that a gentleman was waiting outside and wished to see him personally. The name, "J. D. Braume," was un familiar, but he gave directions to have the stranger shown, in and greeted him pleasantly when be entered: "Mr. Braume, I believe?" "Yes, sir; and this is Mr. Southmead Mr. John Scuthmead?" "That is my name, sir. Won't you take a seat (waving his hand toward a seat by the ...

THE COURIER "I met a man once, up in New England, who discovered that I had the requisite temperament and gave me a little instruction for ten dollars. It was the best investment I ever made." "And you have never found anyone possessed of sufficiently great er power to influence you?'' "Never; when I chos to exert all my strength." Mr. Southinead bad been watching the broad line of sunlight creep slowly along the window casing until at last it touched the edge of a glass prism on the electric light bracket. When he saw that it would completely illumine it in another moment, ho asked carelessly: "Have you ever noticed the peculiar mesmeric effect produced upon the human eye by a brilliantly lighted object, placed somewhat higder than the head?" "Never that's something new to me. Don't think I quite under stand what you mean, but I should say it was impossible for an in animate object to exert a mesmeric influence. Vital strength is ab solutely necessary." "Oh, of course. Anyone knows...

) w- Y FRAGMENTS. Written for The Courier. 1SEE from my window a background of the deepest blue sky. There aro bits of drab clouds floating near the horizon. Away in the distance the somber brown prairies stretch out as lo vol as a floor. Here and thero to break the awful monotony are little farm-houses standing on the bare prairie, lonely and forsaken in appearance. The sun shines fiercely down, but all its gold cannot infuse light or cheerfulness into the scene. In the immediate fore ground I see some ugly brick stores; a little farther off some smaller stores, then some small dwelling houses, then a bit of prairie, and a straggling fragment of the town lying on the side of a hill. I gaze and (raze at the cheerless scene and my heart aches, it is so lonely. A city all about me, but all its people are strangers to me As I sit and dream and long for other days and other scenes, a little brown bird flies on the window ledge, and twitters and jerKS his head to one side, and gazes up i...

Governor Orounso will go out 01 J JW &!$L office a more respected man than ho was when ho camo in, or rather than ho was during the first six months of his administration. Many persons were prejudiced acainst Crounso from tho first and his official acts during the first few months of his encumbency only added to tho disfavor with which, in certain quarters, ho was regard ed. The governor was certainly unfortunate in the early part of his term, and at one time the feeling against him, particularly in Lan caster county, was very bitter. The events following the collapse of the Capital National Bank placed him in rather strained relations with other state officials, and the friends of these gentlemen did not hesitate to say that his treat ment of them was not always marked by that consideration which one state officer should show to another. Thero were several little conflicts at about thiB time and without going ...

THE COURIER 1 --- k V . V THE FACE UPON THE FLOOR. By D'Arcy. (Published by Request.) 'Twas a balmy summer evening and a goodly crowd was there, Which well-nigh filled Joe's bar-room, on the corner of the squaro; And as songs and witty stories came through the open door, A vagabond crept slowly in and posed upon the floor. "Where did it come from?" some one said. "The wind has blown it in.'. "What does it want?" another cried. "Some whiskey rum or gin?' "Here, Toby, seek him, if your stomach's equal to the work I wouldn't touch him with a fork, he's filthy as a Turk." This badinage the poor wretch took with stocial good grace In fact ho smiled as tho'he thought he'd struck the proper place.

AN OLD MAN'S DARLING. The rich old man of 75 was going to marry the beautiful young woman of 25. It was a case of preferring to be an old man's darling to a young man's slave, so the girl said. The old man was greatly tickled when he first won the fair being's trusting affections, but after a bit he took a thinking spell, and then he chuckled to himself. At first thought he had feared to put her love to the test, because of a breach of promise suit, with a decision and a judgment against him, which he was able to satisfy to almo3t any amount a tender hearted jury might award the guileless and innocent plaintiff. He chuckled because this fear had been dispelled. For an old man he had a great head. "My love," he said to her very tenderly, almos...
