He had missed the picture from ltB
(lace over his hearth at Barataria;
fcut, knowing there were others like It,
tie had no thought that he was looking
upon what had been hlB own.
Presently, with a sign Indicating re-
lief, Jackson handed the last paper
to Claiborne, and leaning forward,
with his elbows upon the arms of his
•chair, said, his voice showing more of
contempt than anger, "Most edifying
assortment of reading, to be sure,
Capt. Lafltte. Are these all—these
four papers, two of them addressed to
you, Capt. Percy's Instructions to his
subordinates, and the proclamation
to the people of this state?"
"These are all, general; and they
contain all the information within my
power to give you now," Lafltte re-
Claiborne began to refold the pa-
pers, while the general turned to La-
"It Is a fine ofTer you have received
—all you can possibly desire."
"I wish—will take, nothing that
England can ever have to ofTer me,"
Lafltte added, with sudden fierceness.
"I hate the nation, and its ways!
Nothing could induce me to accept,
cow or ever, any terms from the Eng-
1*e first unguarded evidence of any-
thing like cordial liking now manifest-
ed itself in Jackson's face. Yet there
was nothing of this in his voice as he
said, "May I ask, then, Capt. Lafltte,
If possibly some motive of personal re-
venge brought you here to-night with
u renewal of your offer?"
Lafitte's face flushed through Its
swartfiess; then it paled, and grew
"I understood that you needed sol-
diers—most of all, artillerymen; that
jou also needed arms—cannon and
muskets. I came to offer all I have
left of men and resources, for your
■use, and that of Louisiana.
—glancing at the clock on the mantel
opposite him—"It is late, and I must
return to headquarters. I shall look
for you to report to me at nine in the
morning, to talk over matters In de-
tail. I must know precisely as to the
amount of assistance I am to count
upon from you; and there are other
things about which I wish to consult
you. I understand that no man is so
familiar as yourself with the country
to the south and southwest of here.
Is this true?"
"Yes, general, as I think I may say
"So I supposed; and I shall have
seme questions to ask of you In re-
gard to it. My knowledge of the coun-
try is not entirely complete, and I
wish to obtain all possible information
respecting the roads and waterways.'
"I shall be happy to serve you, sir.
to the best of my ability ; and I thank
jou, gentlemen—both of you, for the
favor you have shown me."
The sudden husklness of Lafitte's
firm voice was the only indication of
his pent-up feelings, as he added, "To-
right, Gen. Jackson, I thank you in
words; but I hope to soon manifest
my gratitude in a more substantial
form—one that shall cauase you no
regret for the justice you have shown
to Jean Lafltte of Barataria."
He left them—his departure being
a-, rapid and quiet as had been his ap
pearance; and Jackson, turning to
Claiborne, said, with a smile of grim
satisfaction, "I believe that we can
save New Orleans; and If we do, by
the Eternal, a good share of the cred-
it will belong to the men whom 1
called 'pirates and robbers,' and ap
proved of your hanging!"
The December sunshine lying about

brightness that would have made the

You could, and you would, had you
been whero I was, to hear what he
aid to Gen. Jackson. It came about
this way: A week or ten days ago,
.afltte rendered an important service,
of a private nature, to Claiborne, and
he governor urged him to name some-
tiling as a reward for his services.
What Lafltte asked was a picture of
Napoleon, which It seems was his own
toperty, although ho was not aware
of it at the time. It had been looted
one of our men during that Sep-
ember attack on Barataria. and Clai-
borne had rescued It, being about as
r.iad over Napoleon as you, yourself,
sister mine; and I-afltte had seen it

"The other day, at headc-.iarters, I
was present when Jacktcn and Lafltte
were having a conferu-.ce, during
which the general spoke of the mat-
ter, and rallied I.afltte upon the senti-
ental price he had named for so val-
uable a service; he added that prob-
ably, like all Frenchmen, he made a

Madame Reifet gasped, and the two
girls exclaimed in amazement.
"It was in France, then, that Capt.
Jean knew him?" Madame said won-
"Naturally, Louise, as Napoleon has
never been in this country." The gen-
eral now consulted his watch, and
added, "I must be off; and, by the
was, let none of you mention the sur-
prising fact that I have just related,
as it might not be pleasing to Capt.
Jean. He said no more than I have re-
peated, and was unmistakably averse
lo enlarging upon the subject."
"He always seems averse to talking
of himself, or of his past life," I,azalie
said, as if thinking aloud, while they
rose from the table; and Madame
Riefet remarked rather severely that
it was perhaps because there was
some disgrace connected with his past,
and that this it might be which had
made him leave France.
The look of resentful- indignation
which this uncharitable comment
brought to Mademoiselle de Caze-
reau's face was softened somewhat
when the general, laying a hand on
cither of his sister's plump slioul
ders, said, as he kissed her cheek,
"For one so naturally kind of heart as

HOTBEDS OF CONSUMPTION
Penal Institutions In Many States Proved to Be
Breeding Places of Tuberculosis
A. Man Crazed by Drink Kills Four
Persons and Himself
SAN DIEGO, CAL.: Armed with ri-
fle revolver and dirk, eaeh of which he
used with deadly dexterity, a madman
ran amuck in this city, killing two
men, boy and a woman, wounding two
ather persons, and finally blowing off
the top of his own head and dying
within a few minutes.
Three of the victims lived In the
same house with the slayer. The
fourth person whom he killed and the
two who were wounded, resided half
a mile away and it was in their houM
that the maniac took his own life.
The man who enacted this ghastly
tragedy was W. P. Rodinson, about
40 years old, of powerful build. The
precise causes which led him to
wholesale murder have not been aa-
certained. It is known, however, that
he was a heavy drinker, that he was
Intensely interested in the nihilist
movement in Russia, and that against
two or three of bis victims hu had
some petty grievance. On the other
hand, he Is said to have been ordinar-
ily a good natured man and Inclined
to be generous—one of the last per-
sons likely to take life. The general
supposition is that drink and brood-
ing over nihilism brought on an at-
tack of homicidal mania.
It Is the duty of the state to protect
Its citizens—even those condemned to
pass a term of years in jail. The dan-
ger to the Inmates of prisons, from
pulmonary disease, has only lately
keen realized. A short time since a
man who had served a sentence In
the Ohio penitentiary, declared that
to send him back meant death by
tuberculosis. Inquiry was mads. The
head physician announced that the
building was a hotbed of consump-
tion. A prominent official stated that
a ten years' sontence was equivalent
to condemning a man to death by
Dr. S. A. Knopf, the greatest Ameri-
can authority on tuberculosis, was In-
vited to visit the penitentiary. With-
out hesitation he pronounced it the
most unsanitary penal Institution he
had ever seen.
The output of many prisons Is
enough to convince of the truth of the
above statements. The sallow com-
plexions, weakened bodies, sunken
chests of the ex-convlcts, all are the
stamp of murderous prison hygiene.
All the rules for combatting the great
white plague are reversed. For sun-
light, they are given darkness; for
fresh nir, a damp, musty atmosphere;
for out-of-door life a weary In-door
grind, a large part spent within the
narrow confines of a single cell.
Is It not enough to take from a fel-
low being his liberty and appropriate
tho labor of his hands, without forc-
ing him to live under such conditions?
Dare the state continue to condemn
any of its citizens to such a death?
Shall the sentence In a public prison
cease at its legal expiration, or shall
tho poor victim continue to suffer
from Its dire effects until he fills a
In this day of Antl-Tuberculosis
agitation. It would seem that public
institutions, whether asylums, schools,
prisons or assembly halls should be
the first to be brought under proper
sanitary conditions. It Is useless,
hopeless to educate the masses in re-
gard to the cure and prevention of
tuberculosis and then maintain at
public expense hotbeds for tho de-
velopment of consumptives to be fin-
ally turned loose in tho community.
boy into a basement room, which wa
fitted up as a complete carpenter'#
shop, and gave him the following ad-
vice, which he considered would be of
more value to him than anything he
had ever written:
"You know I am a doctor, and this
shop Is my medicine. I believe that
every man must have a hobby that
is as different from his regular work
as It Is possible to be. It Is not
good for a man to work all the time
at one thing. So this Is my hobby.
This Is my change. I like to putter
away at these things. Every day I
try to come down here for an hour or
so. It rests me because It gives my
mind n complete change. For, whether
you believe it or not," he added, with
his inimitable chuckle, "to make a
poem and to make a chair are two
very different tilings.
"Now, If you think you can learn
something from me, learn that, and
remember It when you are a man.
Don't keep always at your business,
whatever It may be. It makes no
difference how much you like It. Tho
more you liko It, tho more dangerous
it is. When you grow up, you will
understand what I mean by an 'out-
let.' Every man must have an 'out-
let'—a hobby—that Is, in his life, and
it must be so different from his regu-
lar work that It will take Ills work
into an entirely different direction.
Wo doctors call It a 'safety valve,'
and it Is. I would much rather," con-
cluded the poet, "you would forget all
that I have ever written than that you
should forget what I tell you about
having a Bafety valve."

care of that, and they are yours with-

"Assuming," said Claiborne, that
everything is as you say, and that
your proposition is accepted, what se-
curity have I, as governor of this
•state, and responsible, not only to Its
people, but to the President, that you
will fulfil your agreement?"
Jackson, with an impatient glance at
Ciaiborne, started to speak; but he
checked himself as Lafltte answered
coldly, "My personal manhood and
honor. Ask any merchant of New
Orleans with whom I have had deal-
ings if ever I failed to fulfil my con-
tracts. Ask any bank In New Orleans
if my paper has ever been dishonored.
No man, woman or child, white or

tell you that I always keep my prom-
"Well answered!" And Jackson,
every vestige of reserve now swept
away, arose from his chair, and com-
ing around the table, extended both
lands, which Lafltte grasped cordially.
Claiborne's manner underwent a
marked change, although it was still
somewhat formal as he said, "Capt.
Lafltte, I cannot do otherwise than be-
lieve you to be sincere, and to admire
the motives which have led you to
take this most honorable course. I
t-m pleased to be able to recognize In
you a good and loyal citizen; and my
proclamation against you will be re-
voked In the morning. Meanwhile, In

took the extended hand, and bent his
head with a courtesy cold as that

Jackson, evidently determined not to
accept the governor's attitude as a
criterion for his own, said, with In-
creased friendliness: "Capt. I-afltte, 1

a full statement of this matter. But"
Leasing Agent Resigns
MUSKOGEE: Robert Smith, wbc
has charge of the lease department at
the Indian agency, has tendered bis
resignation. While it is not knowai
if the recent investigation had any-
thing to do with Smiths resignation,

pawed impatiently as ho stood wait-

La Roche had returned home only
the day before, for a brief visit, and to
assure himself that all was well with
his household, consisting now of his
sister, I-azalie, and Rose de Cazeneau.
Even at this, the last, hour of his
stay, some of the Items of news he
bad brought from the city were being
discussed and enlarged upon.
"A curious change of affairs," re-
marked Madame Riefet, "that Gen.
Jackson should now be trusting so
much to the Baratarlans, who, only
last September, were denounced by
him. as well as by every one else."
The general laughed.
"Well—yes. In September they were
'pirates,' and 'hellish banditti;' but In
Leeember they are privateers, and
their leaders are gentlemen. Yet I
can assure you that they are brave
fellows and tremendous fighters, and
just the men needed now to help save

general said animatedly, "How could

The Tonic Use of Water.
Cold water Is tho universal tonic.
The best time for taking a cold bath
for tonic effect Is just after getting
cut of bed in the morning, when tho
body is warm. A cold bath should
never be taken when one is chilled.
One not accustomed to cold bathing
should begin carefully with water not
colder than 75 deg. F. The bath should
be short, not to exceed a minute, and
for feeble persons not more than fif-
teen or thirty seconds when applied
to tho wholo surface. Tho bath
should he immediately followed by
rubbing and exercise for fifteen
thirty minutes. There should always
l.e good reaction; that is, the whole
surface, including the hands and feet,
should quickly become warm. The
bath should not be followed by lan-
guor, headache, lassitude or other in-
dications of excessive reaction. When
one experiences such symptoms, the
indication Is that the bath was too
long or too cold or not followed by
sufficient exercise. For feeble, very
>oung or elderly persons the water
used should rarely be lower than 05
degrees to 75 degrees iu winter. Tho
bath should bo taken In a suitably

For a Cold.
The dally cold bath Is one of the
ir.ost effective safeguards against
taking cold. Of equal Importance Is
abundance of fresh air In the sleep-
ing apartment. Upon the first symp-
toms of "a cold," deep breathing ex-
ercises In the open air or In a well
ventilated room should be taken at
frequent intervals. In nearly all
cases where this simple treatment is
taken, there will be no further de-
velopment of the cold, and the symp-
toms will disappear. A doctor con-
nected with a large Institution for
children recently tried this method
upon the Inmates with surprising suc-
"Tlioro Is nothing," he writes,
"more Irritable than a cough. For a
time I have been so fully assured of
this that I determined, for one min-
ute at least, to lessen the number of
coughs heard In a certain ward of
tho hospital of the Institution. By
tho promise of rewards and punish-
ments, I succeeded In having the chil-
dren simply hold their breath when
tempted to cough, and in a little whl'.o
I was myself surprised to see how
somo of the children entirely recov-
ered from the disease.
"Let a person, when tempted to
cough, draw a long breath, and hold
It until It warms and soothes every
air-cell, and somo benefit will soon
be received from this process The
nitrogen which Is thus refined acts
as an anodyne to tho mucous mem-
brane, allaying the desire to cough,
and giving the throat and lungs a
chance to heal."

Slaughter of the Innocents.
A study of statistics reveals the ter-
rible fact that nearly one-half of all
tho human beings born inlo the world
die before the ago of five years. In
the city of Stetten. Germany, nearly
one-half—473 out of every thousand-
lie during the first year of their lives.
In Ireland, Scotland, Norway and Swe-
den, where children are given better
care, have more outdoor life, and
more intelligent attention Is given to
feeding, the number of deaths is only
one-fiftieth as many as in the city
of Stetten, being ten per cent.
Physicians are coming to recognize
that the use of cow's milk, which is
infected with tho germs of tubercu-
losis, Is one of the most active of
all the causes of death among young
children. This should be remem-
bered in the artificial feeding of in-
fants. The milk should either bo
boiled or well scalded before being
fed to the infant. This rule should
be universally observed for adults as
well as for children, and, if applied,
will save thousands of lives annually.
A Safety Valve.
In the Ladles' Home Journal a
writer tells of an interesting visit
which he paid when a boy to tho
"Autocrat of tho Breakfast Table."
AXter breakfast Dr. Holmes took the
Barley Soup.—Soak a run of pearled
barley over night and cook In plenty
of water until well done, but not
mushy. At proper periods add to it a
portion each of minced onion, sliced
cabbage and okra, diced carrots and
turnip, salt and enough tomatoes to
give an appetizing flavor and color. A
little seasoning may he required.
Noodles with Cranberries.—Beat
well one egg, or more according to
the need, incorporating with each a
tablespoonful of cold water and a
pinch of salt. Knead in flour sufficient
to make a stiff dough. Roll as thin
as thin pasteboard. Let, It dry on one
side and then on the- other, frequently
turning it. but do not let it become
dry enough to eraek when rolled. Roll
it very compactly: with a very sharp
knife cut, thin slices from the end
until all is used. Let these dry thor-
oughly (they may be prepared sev-
eral days before needed) and cook In
boiling salted water about twenty
minutes. Drain in a colander, and
give a dash of cold water to prevent
pastiness. Reheat, and serve with
strained cranberry sauce as a dress-
ing. Any other fruit may he used.
Any of the various forms of macaroni
may be substituted for the noodles.
Stuffed Potatoes—Bake smooth po-
tatoes until just done. Cut in halves
lengthwise, remove the insldes, being
careful not lo tear the skins. Mash,
season and return to the shells. Have
ready some slightly salted, stiffly
beaten egg to cover the top of each
piece. Place on a tin in the oven to
brown and warm.
Creamed Turnips—Dice turnips and
boil until tender, having salted them
a while before draining. Somewhat
more than cover them with rich milk.
When boiling hot pour in slowly some
braided flour, gently shaking the ket-
tle to insure the even thickening of
the dressing. Cook a few minutes
Lanse Brod.—Beat one egg Into one
cup of milk. Add salt and a spoonful
of sugar. Dip Into it slices of stale
bread and brown them nicely on a
well-oiled pancake griddle. Serv®
Squash Custard.—Prepare squash
the same as for pies. Bake in a shal-
low pudding dish without crust and
