A ROMAN SCARF.

her spectacles and peered out of the

Miss Minerva's agitation. "I wonder
what it is this time," she muttered, as
she poured hot water into a pan, pre-
paratory to washing the dinner dishes.
"Yes'm," she answered in response
to Miss Minerva's excited call of "Eliz-

place is chasing Peter. Run and put

As Elizabeth Aiyi crossed the yard
a large black cat, closely followed by
a Scotch terrier, whisked past her and

its tail and frisked around Elizabeth
"Oh, Flip, why do you worry poor
* old Peter so? Go home, sir," she said
severely. The terrier trotted after her
to a remote corner of the yard, where
he submissively crept through a gap
in the fence which separated Miss Mi-
nerva's property from the adjoining
A man at work on the other side
threw down his hoe and came up. He
was tall and spare and was clad in blue
jeans trousers and checked shirt:
"Flip trespassin' again?" he asked.
"He was chasin' Peter," said Eliz-
abeth Ann. "It was the chickens this
morning, Mr. Dobbs."
"Keeps you pretty busy, doesn't it?"
Elizabeth Ann laughed. "1 don't
mind it, it's fun," she said.
"She always dia set great store by
Peter, but Flip can't abide him. Still
he wouldn't hurt the critter."
"Miss Minerva doesn't like dogs,"
said Elizabeth Ann, laughing again.
Mr. Dobbs chuckled. "I reckon it's
more the dog's owner that she tioesu't
like," he said.
"I must go back," said Elizabeth
Ann, in a regretful tone. "Good-by, for
^ now, Mr. Dobbs."
"Mighty interestln' child for only be-
in' 11, too," said Mr. Dobbs, reflective-
ly, stroking his grizzled beard, as he
looked after Elizabeth. "Wonder
what Minerva Collins 'd say if she
know me and her is such friends.'
As ho resumed his hoeing 'lis
thoughts went back to the years when
the relations between him and Miss
Minerva had not been in their pres-
ent strained condition; to that unlucky
evening when a discussion arose as to
the proper mode of baptism. He had
contended that sprinkling was suffi-
cient, and Miss Minerva had held out
for immersion. That was long before
Elizabeth Ann had come to live with
her aunt. Mr. Dobbs had often told
her about the quarrels.
"And she's never taken any notice of
> me since. I tried once to make it up.
And it was strange about that, too,"
he had added, thoughtfully. Elizabeth
Ann had wondered how he had tried
to make it up, but had not liked to
"Did you see him on his own side be-
fore you came back?" asked Miss Mi-
nerva when Elizabeth Ann went back
to her interrupted dish washing.
"Yes'm," answered Elizabeth Ann.
"Nasty little beast!" ejaculated Miss
When the last dish had been placed
in the closet and the kitchen put !n
spotless order, Elizabeth Ann went
into the sitting-room.
"If everything's done you may have
the afternoon to yourself," said Miss
Minerva, who was now tranquilly knit-
ting, and Peter curled up on a cush-
ion near her.
Elizabeth Ann stood a while look-
ing out of the window. She was un-
decided whether to go down to the
fence and talk with Mr. Dobbs or go
up to the attic. But she saw that it
was beginning to rain, and reflected
that Mr. Dobbs would not continue
hoeing, for he had been having rheu-
matic twinges lately. So, with some
regret, she decided in favor of the
attic, for, great as were the charms
which the latter place had for her,
Mr, Dobbs' society possessed a
stronger attraction. He told her such
interesting stories and listened to all
of her confidences so attentively, and
he never told her not to be foolish,
as Miss Minerva had done when she
' had ventured to communicate her
thoughts to her.
"Don't get into mischief," Miss Mi-
nerva called out as Elizabeth Ann lef
There was an old-fashioned trunk of
odds and ends which Miss Minerva
had told her she could have to play
with, provided "she kept them tidily."
Elizabeth Ann had not yet explored
to the bottom of the trunk. She would
do so today. There were pieces of
ribbons and lace, ends of embroidery,
some bunches of artificial flowers and
various other articles of cast-olf fin-
ery. Under all, on the bottom of the
trunk, something was folded in white
tissuo paper. -Elizabeth Ann opened it
and a long Roman striped silk scarf
fell out in glistening folds. It was
soft and fine, and of beautiful color-
ing; the ends were deeply fringed.
Elizabeth Ann gave an exclamation of
delight. Sho had a passion for rich
colors, and this was the most beauti-
ful thing she had ever seen. Severe
plainness of dress was a part or Mls.i
• Elizabeth Ann smoothed out the soft
folds again and again. Tt would make
such a lovely sash, she thought. How
had her aunt ever thrown it aside?
She passed it about her waist and
tied it in a bow with loops that fell
to the bottom of her skirt. A ray of
sunlight flashed through the attic
window. Why, tt had not rained much,
after all. She would run down to the
orchard and see if Mr. Dolibs were
out. She mast show that scarf. Mr.
Dobbs liked pretty things, too. So she
crept quietly down rairs, and, avoiding
the sitting-room, went out of a si6«
door. If Miss Minerva saw her with
the scarf on, she would tell her not
to he foolish.
Miss Minerva was still knitting plac-
idly and Peter purred at her feet,
when, chancing to glance out of the
window, she beheld a sight which
made her suddenly sit up stiff and
erect in her chair—Mr. Dobbs crossing
her yard! He eame with a long, rapid
stride that in a few moments brought
him to her sitting-room door, which
he opened after a warning knock. Miss
Minerva turned her stern gray eyes
upon him in cold inquiry. He held a
gay-colored silk scarf in his hand.
"Minerva, why didn't you send it
back as I a ked you, and then I'd 'a'
known—and not waited and waited as
I did for months?" he asked, reproach-
fully, as he looked alternately at the
sear! and Miss Minerva.
'The latter made no answer, and Mr.
Dobbs went on: "Our not agreein' on
sprinkiin' or 'mersion made nb differ-
ence. When a man asks a woman to

Mi3s Minerva stared at him in ever-
growing astonishment. "I don't know
what you are talking about. Send it
back? I never saw the thing, before."
"Is that really so, Minerva?" he
"It's not my habit to lie," replied
Miss Minerva, icily.
"I've often had misgivings that there
was some mistake. I never had the
courage to ask you about it, for you
know how you treated me when we
met. Turned away your head and "
Miss Minerva rose impatiently.
"What are you talking about? What
have I to do with that silk thing?"
"Well, Minerva, I'll go over the
whole thing. I s'pose you remember
our argument about baptisin'. I talked
the way I did just to tease you, but
you took it all for earnest. Now, I

two after our misunderstanding I was

As Miss Minerva listened her stern
face relaxed and a softened light shone
in her eyes. Before Mr. Dobbs had fin-
ished, she turned her gaze to the win-
dow and there was a little flush in
"I never had a note from you and I
never saw that scarf before," she said
"I sent them by the hired man."
"That was the summer Cousin Mat-
tie was with me. Likely I was out and
he left them with her. You know what
a scatter-brain she is." The color had
deepened in Miss Minerva's cheeks and
there was none .of her accustomed se-
verity of manner.
She looked down at the scarf in Mr.
Dobb's hand. "But where did you get
it now?" she asked, suddenly.
"Elizabeth Ann found it in your
attic and "

said, quietly. "But you know, Jona-

"Please yourself, Minerva, so long as
you take it."

Of .tie Two Ship I'anul lloutrs Under
The ship canal question is®becomlng
one of huge importance, and the argu-
ments pro and con for the Nicaraguan
and the Panama routes are endless.
There are two features* affecting the
commercial success of the canals which
have not been considered as yet. and
these are the question of favorable
winds as affecting the amount of sail-
ing tonnage that would seek either
route, and the yet more serious ques-
tion of the curvature of the canals as
affecting both steam and sailing ves-
sels. It is in favor of Nicaragua that
•for ten mSnths of the year there are
steady trade winds, which would en-
able sailing ships to reach either ter-
minus without the assistance of tugs
except in entering the artificial har-
bors. In the latitude of Panama, on
the other hand, there are long pe-
riods of calm which might render
somewhat lengthy towing necessary.
While the objection counts for some-
thing. it is not so serious as might be
supposed, for the reason that the deep
sea sailing tonnage forms a very small
and rapidly diminishing proportion of
the total tonnage. In fact, it is prob-
able that by the time either canal ia
finished, the tramp steamer will hava
completely ousted the sailing ship
from the long distance carrying trade.
In laying out a ship canal the curva-
ture is one of the most important ques-
tions for consideration. In view of the
ever-increasing length of ocean steam-
ships. it is desirable to make the canal
as straight as possible. If, owing to
the nature of the country, curves are
necessary, they should be "easy," that
is to say, their radius should be large.
When a large ship passes up the Man-
chester ship canal, she has to be as-
sisted by a tug at her head and one at
the stern to enable her to make the
turns. This is tedious. co3tly and full
of risk. The smallest cujve at Pana-
a will be four times as easy as that
of the Manchester canal in England,
and double as easy as those of the Kiel
canal in Germany. The curvature of
the Nicaragua canal has not been de-
termined. but for about fifty miles of
its course down the San Juan valley
it must necessarily be very sharp, even
after the waters of the river have been
dammed. . The approximate curvature
of the river channel shows a total
length of curvature in the valley of
39.G miles. The curves of the Panama
canal are of 8,200 feet radius or over,
while the river channel at Nicaragua
has six curves of 700 to 1,500 feet, 13
of 1,500 to 2.500 feet, and 21 curves of
2,500 to 3,000 feet. Although the Ochoa
dam will widen the channel, it will be
difficult, even with costly excavation, in
cutting away the spurs of the hills, to
reduce the curvature to the extent nec-
essary for easy navigation.
WILLING TO SPLIT.
Chinaman's Uritfht Iilon About
American Life Inaurnnee.
There is a Pittsburg life insurance
agent of whom it is said he can talk a
stone statue into buying a policy in his
company, "the most liberal on earth,"
says the Pittsburg News. He wrote a
policy for a Chinaman a few weeks
ago, the first ever written for a man of
the race in Pittsburg. How he did it
he alone knows. The Chinaman has
no clear idea of it. He understood that
by paying the premiums promptly he
would be entitled to Jo,000 some time.
He began bothering the agent for the
money after a couple of weeks had
passed, and the agent tried to explain
to him that he would have to die be-
fore he could get it. The Chinaman
fell down a cellarway on Grant street
and was badly hurt. His friends tried
to attend to him without calling in a
doctor. When they did call in one two
days later the doctor was angry.
"Why didn't you call me sooner?"
he asked. "This man is half dead
Next day the injured man's brother
was at the insurance office with a
claim for $2,500.
"You're not entitled to anything on
this," said the insurance man, "until

LONE STAGE ROBBER.
FOILED BY ONE OF
Rkttllnf Dash Down a Mountain—-
Foaming and Frantic Horaea Pull the
Stage and Wounded Men Safely Into
In the early days, when the big,
lumbering stage coaches were the sola
mean3 of transportation for passen-
gers and valuables, the "road agent"
was a fixed feature in the life of ths
great West. An occasional report of
a stage robbery from the mountain
counties of California serves to re-
mind the public that the mountain
bandit still exists, and that the rail-
road has not entirely replaced the old
four and six-horse vehicle with the
miners. Only recently news came
from Jackson that two desperate rob-
bers had attacked the driver • and
"shotgun" guard as the Jackson and
lone stage was bowling down the
mountain side near a point known as
The story of this attempt has again
brought before the public a heroic fig-
ure who has ridden with Wells-Far-
go's treasure boxes for a quarter of a
century and carried them through ad-
ventures both numerous and exciting.
This man is Mr. Reason 15. McConnell.
As "shotgun" guard he was in his ac-
customed place, as the stage came
down the grade, on the seat by the
driver, with his trusty gun, well
charged with buckshot, across his arm.
Suddenly, just as the men on the seat
were opposite the big black rock, a
man rose up and let drive at them
with a load of BB shot. Mr. McCon-
nell and the driver were both struck.
The majority of the shot passed a lit-
tle ahead of them, but some shattered
Driver Podesto's right hand, and the
left forearm of the guard was also
filled with shot, while the front of his
overcoat was fairly riddled.
The gun which the messenger was
holding with his left hand dropped be-
tween his knees, and as he glanced
around to find the assassin a second
load of shot came liis way. But while
he was making the hasty survey of
him, the driver complied. The high-
wayman picked up $2,700 for his ad-
Mr. McConnell first met Black Bart
during Christmas week of 1876 at
Billings, one mile from Elkhorn Sta-
tion. He had only one passenger, Mr.
Brandt Greely, but there was $7,000 in
the treasure box. When held up, the
driver threw out a strong box which
contained nothing but way bills, and
on being released took the stage
through an hour and a half ahead of
tim'e, with nothing missing but some
letters and way bills, the latter being
On July 29, 1883, Dorsey and Shlnn
stopped Mr. McConnell at Funk Hill.
They got an empty box and a few dol-
lars from a passenger. Mr. McConnell
got so used to getting robbed, or rtil-
er being stopped, that he ceased to
make anything but a mental note ol
it. Other drivers and messengers would
lose money and get killed on other
lines, but he bore a charmed existence
j and never in liis 25 years experience
was he Injured until a few weeks ago.
Black Bart robbed Ills first stage in
July, 1875, and Mr. John Shine, now a
United States marshal, was the driver.
He robbed his last near the same place
November I, 1883, and Mr. McConnell
was the driver. Mr. Shine and Mr.
McConnell are great friends and spin
yarns by the hour when they get to-
Mr. Shine lias had experiences sim-
ilar to those of Mr. McConnell. Four
men once stopped him at Browns Flat,
between Columbia and Sonora, Dur-
ing the attempt of one of the robbery
to enter a sleepy passenger pushed the
fellow off the brake, thinking him a
tramp. The robber's gun went off amj
the team started. Mr. Shine urgetj
them forward and got away with the
treasure. The robbers in the brush
shot the boy off immediately behind
him. John was on the go, however,
and hit only the high places on the
run to Columbia. This was before day-
break. He has had many other adven-
tures, and carries a Wells-Fargc

smoke of the kind contains ethylene,
from which alcohol is readily made by
simple means, and it is recognized
that ere long the smoke of high fur-

Mr. Editor:—For the good of suffer-
ing humanity, and particularly those
suffering from that most dreadful dis-
ease, rheumatism, we desiro to inform
your readers that the only specific in
the world today for this disease Is our
"Five Drops" remedy. "Five Drops
Is the name, and "Five Drops" is the
dose. It is not only acknowledged a
specific by the many thousands who
have been cured by Its use, but it is
now acknowledged to be such by the
medical profession, many of whom use
this remedy lu their dally practice, and
they state to us that It Is tho only
thing with which they can cure the
rhitumatlsm. This remedy not only
positively cures this disease, but it
never has failed and it never can fail
to cure any and all of the following
diseases: Sciatica, •I.timbago, Neural-
gia, Catarrh, Creeping Numbness,
Nervousness, Asthma, Heart Weak-
ness, Toothache, Earache, La Grippe,
and diseases of the liver and kidneys.
"Five Drops" is not a patent medicine,
but was perfected only after vast re-
search In scientific fields, and at great
expense? It never can be fully appre-
ciated until It Is used, Many of Its
cures border on the miraculous. Words
