are ill; for your own sake as well as
those you love, give it a trial.

railroad called.
"We understand, of course, that the

It depends upon
the circumstances

To the men of
the army the gar

are accepted with
childish delight

The army knows that It Is Impossible
to explain to the gentleman from
l ong Island or Potighkeepsle, N. Y„
that a little brown brother, hopping in
and out of the brush, fanatically desir-
ous of clawing up an American citizen
with a poisoned bolo, has little regard
for the federal statutes at large. And,
of course, neither has Sammy, Jr., the
uncommercial gentleman who has en-
listed for reasons best known to him-
self and whose duty It Is to catch the
aforesaid Moro, and generally clear
the path for those that follow after.
Private Sammy does his work and he
does It according to circumstances,
which are essentially nonpolltical.
Therefore It happens on occaslonos
that the aforesaid Moro Is sent yelp-
ing Into eternity and Sammy Jr. re-
gards himself with a pleased grin.
Also, circumstances force him to
other untoward steps. Once there
was a famous soldier, Mulvaney by
name, who took the town of Lungtungpen, "na-
kld as Vanus," and who, prior thereto, helped
the department of Information of the British em-
pire, with the Judicious administration of his
cleaning rod. Which goes to show that between
Private Sammy and Private Tommy there Is a
healthy Anglo-Saxon understanding—particularly
as regards the treatment of black and brown
All this Is merely preamble, but when the
Moro has been carted away and the congressional
committee has committed Itself and the garlands
are forgotten Private Sammy goes back to his
own life, which to him is a highly Important af-
fair Somewhere, somehow, there remains In his
brain an Impression that he Is allowed the pur-
suit of happiness—and he pursues It. He does
It In his own way and In divers places. The tur-
bulent tides of Juan de Fuca, which race by the
gun-crested heights of Fort Worden, have heard
his raucous chorus; the watermelon patches dot-
ting the desolation of Fort Riley know his foot-
print. On a Florida sandspit, In the snows of
Alaska. In the heat of the Islands, he pursues It—
and catches what little there Is of It.
The world which praises and abuses him
knows him not, nor his life. The point of view
is entirely different A ponderous civilian at
the window of the paying teller of a local bank
observed an officer in uniform standing behind
"Well. I guess the country Is safe," observed
the rotund one, gazing superciliously at the uni-
"Thank you, sir," said the officer, saluting.
This officer was a boy lieutenant, and his sar-
casm was natural. For within his short space
of years he had played with the fangs of death
and made snooks at the powers of darkness. A
short time previously, at Luzon, he was ordered
to find the bodies of two soldiers that had been
murdered. The orders were to find the bodies,
so of course they went and did. With seven
troopers and a surgeon ho pursued his way
through Jungle scrub and cholera infested lands,
without food, drenched with rain, sleeping In
swamps. They found them. One was tied alive
over a red ant hill, after being slashed with a
bolo and the other had been knifed and gagged
*ith a portion of his own flesh. Presumably the
supercilious circumferential gentleman did not
know of such things and—this Is what stings-
there seem to be so many citizens of the coun-
try whose ideas of the work of the army Is equally
limited. Unfortunately, the men who do big
things cannot talk about them.

Her husband came In for dinner and rushed
away again. Whereupon little Mrs. Army Woman
went to her trunk and for the first time unpacked
all the finery of the days that had been.
"I found a dress which I had worn at a dance
at the Presidio the last time." she said, "and I
cried and 1 cried—"
Before leaving, the husband had pushed a ches.
against the door, locking her In completely, this
being deemed the safest plan. Therefore on leav
Ing he had to crawl through the window, and as
ho hung on the window sill she bent forward and
kissed htm. Then she heard him drop with a
splash Into the disease Infested pools below Alto-
gether It was as nice a spot for the pursuit of hap
plr.ess as could be found.
Then she went to the loneliness and the darK
and the centipedes and cried. The wind whipped

the place of the wife Is by her
husband. So with htm she plunged
through the Jungle to the camp. She
was the first white woman In the
place and the only other one of her
kind was 20 miles away. The situa-
tion was decidedly pleasant. The
house was like an Inverted waste-
paper basket, a three-roomed bam
boo shack set up on bamboo poles.
One room was dubbed the centlpe-
dorlum because—well, because ev-
ery time the bride went in it Bhe
found centipedes and other things.
There were other advantages. There
was no stove and the cooking had
to be done over hot coals. Also the
water had to be boiled and par-
boiled; not alone the water for
drinking purposes, but
also for washing.
"There was so much
cholera." she explained.
The meals were served
with wire nettings over
the dishes and above and
about them and around
them was the one thought

other delights. The Moros

the windows, thereby making the house too dark
for reading purposes. So the day long, wh

rain with chlorodyne In hand, she peered through
the slats, gazing at the bamboo palmtrees whip-

the appointed time she prepared dinner, bhe pro-

there was a household Joke. "What we cannot eat
we can." Now as she gazed at the canned milk,
the canned butter and the canned meats she
wondered if she could eat all they can. Some-
how or other the fleeting thought of the girlhood
days made her choke. You see It was the rain
and the storm and the centipedes and things
which got on her nerves.
The storm passed and there followed the silences,
weird, uncanny, of dripping water, of moving
things underfoot. Ultimately she heard the splash- _ _

for her husband s appearance, wrapped In
army blanket, chilled to the heart. Later, when
her husband and daylight had come, she learned
that she had been sitting opposite a window with
a lighted candle by her, offering a splendid mark
for the prowling Filipino sharpshooters.
This was an experience and one which the fat
gentleman In the bank had never imagined. To
the army this ignorance and narrowness is incom-
prehensible. The agony and bloody sweat of ;
hiding death had gripped him so often that Pri-
vate Sam cannot understand why the gentlemen
who employ him for this class of work do not
realize that there are particular horrors connected
with It. Being of the army, he does not speak of
them, but his gorge rises within him when fat
gentlemen sneer at the uniform which he has
made respected.
But he remembers the pursuit of happiness
and the day comes when he Is ordered home.
Then it Is that the army and Its women, gathered
aft, watch the walls of Manila fade from their

Romance o/ the Sweet Pea
■ " - '■
The most highly regarded and widely grown
annual In Canadian gardens of today, no matter
where in this flower-loving country the garden be,
or whether It belong to cottager or man of means,
tolling clerk or park-owning municipality, the
sweet pea first came to us from the Sicilian nuns.
Franclscus Cupanl, a monk, who was also a
botanist, sent the first seeds to England In the
year 1G99, consigned to an Enfield schoolmaster
named Dr. Uvedale. The old Middlesex dominie
was both a botanist and horticulturist, and he
grew the first sweet peas ever seen In England.
Cupanl called the plant Lathyrus dlstoplaty-
phyllus hlrsutls, mollis et odorus—an unwieldy
name, out of all harmony with the winged grace
of the sweet pea. f,ater Linnaeus cut down the
clumsy designation to its present form of Lathy-
rus odoratus.
Dr. Uvedale found the seeds produced a plant
with purple flowers, and so here we have the
color of the original sweet pea.
The stock was gradually multiplied, and about
thirty years later one Robert Furber, a Kensing-
ton gardener, was the first to offer seeds for
Progress In the production of new varieties
was slow In those remote days, and It was not
until the year 1793 (nearly a century later than
Cupanl's consignment of seeds) that any new col-
ors became known. In the year mentioned, how-
ever, a catalogue was Issued, which described
black, scarlet and white varieties.
What became of the black and scarlet sorts, tf
they ever existed In those true colors, Is not
known. The black must have been a deep purple.
The blackest bloom Is still the dark purple Tom

past hybridists have been trying to produce a

An extremely corpulent old lady was
entertaining her grandchild at lunch-
con when she found occasion to repri-
mand the little girl for dropping soma

"You don't see grandma dropping
anything on the table," she said.
"Of course not," replied the child;
"God gave you something in front to
stop It."
yellowest bloom at present known Is the creamy
Clara Curtis.
A novelty In the form of a striped flower was
offered in the year 1837 by ^r. James Carter and j
In the year 18C0 there appeared the first bloom
of the choice plcoteeedged varieties which are j
to popular today. The latter was raised by Major ,
Trevor Clarke. It was a fine white flower with |
an edging of blue, and Major Clarke scored a
double triumph, for his new flower was also the
first sweet pea with blue coloring.
The greatest revolution In the history of the
sweet pea, however, was inaugurated on July 25,
1901, when, at the National Sweet Pea society's
first 'exhibition, held In the old Royal >quarlum,
London, Mr. Silas Cole, Earl Spencer's gardener
at Althorp park, displayed the famous Countess
Spencer, a beautiful pink variety with a wavy
Instead of the conventional smooth standard. The
loveliness of the new form won the hearts of all
growers at once and during the last ten years so
great has been the Increase of wavy or frilled va-
rieties after the Spencer type that the latter now
rules the sweet pea world.

present in adding to the list of marbled varieties.
