Three years ago Darney McGee, one
of the best-known railroad men in the
wist, was viBiting Hot Springs, suffer-
ing from rheumatiuui. Several days
alter reaching there he was
wa'.klng along the bank of the river
some distance below the springs, when
he noticed a small rainbow trout near
McGee watched the trout for some
tln-o, then cautiously went nearer tho
water. Tho trout looked at McGee
and the railroad man stooped down
and picked up the trout, the fish mak-
ing but a fetblo resistance. More in
humor than in seriousness McGee de-
ckled that wnen he arrived at the ho-
tel that the fish was suffering from
the K.wne complaint as himself, and he
.vould put It in a bathtub and have
its rheumatism driveu out from iis
.Ins and tail. Ho did put ft in warm
ivater, and for three days fed It on
worms that ne dug up near by. The
irout seemed to recognize Its bene-
,actors, and much to the surprise of
everyone, was ablo on the third day

ipeed of a healthy lish.
Having formed an attachment for
the fish, McGee decided to put it back
n the river again, but before doing
so secured a fine piece of silver wire,
which he caretully wrapped around
A lew weeks ago Mr. McGee again
returned to the springs, and, taking a
daily walk a'ong the river banks, he
was astonished to see a big fish with-

McGee reached down in the water and
pulled It out.
It was not until he was nearlng

The story Is to the 'offect that a
great ball was given at the South Car-
olina capital cue evening during the
reconstruction era, and while many
southern hearts were still embittered.
A number of northern officers were
present at this ball, and in the course
of the evening one of them was in-
trqfluced to a haughty southern lady,
whose antipathy to all northerners
was well kuown.
The lady acknowledged the Intro-
duction with a grudjus inclination of
her head, and then drawing herself
to her full, magnificent height, said
"But, Sir, I would have you know
that I am still an unreconatruc.ed

or he ia the direct descendant ot Ala
Uddln, sultan ot tho Seljuks, who
gave up his title to the kinder of

lustrious, so us to be aole to lead a

tho fourteenth century, and evei since
then tho de cuidants of Ala blddm
have invested the bultan by gilding
him wi.h Osman's e^ord.
The Tchelebi and his followers,
who aro rich In hind and live In a
monastery at Koniab in Asia Minor,
are known to the European world as
dancing dervishes. A dervish in be
either a dar.c r.g or a howling dt rvish,
but a dancing dervish ranks higher
than hi; howling brother. Their cere-
mony, as pcrtormcd in a eiifllnx hall
on Tue days and Fildcys in Ptra or
Scutari, teems to tho tourist rather
comicaj, but behind it lies that deep
reverence lor the prophet and the
fanaticism of the faithful. It is
through the dervishes that the Turk-
ish masses understand their religion.
Therefore, they are not to be des-
pised, even by the tourist, whilst to
the historian they form a link be-
tween modern religion and the long-
forgotten practices of ancient Egypt.
Each dervish, on entering Tchele-
bi s monastery, has to take a vow of
ch.a .*.'ty, poverty and obedience, his
calling answering to that of the monk
of western ideas. AH the same they
are allowed to marry and have a
house In the town, though they must
pass at least.two nights a week in
their monastery. Neither do they
keep stiictly to the vow of poverty,
for besides a trade, many get large
sums as presents from the faithful.
Humility oi' toul they pioiess; but no
man has a prouder manner and ex-
terior than a dsivish. The monastery
of Konlah, over which Tchelebi rules,
Is very la.ge indeed: but the usual
numl-or of Inmates in such places is
I about 40. Their chief Is ca'led a sheik
or Grand Mufti. They get their food
and lodging free, and are supposed
to take their meals alone in their
c?lls. To the European mind, how-
evpr, they seem to sppnd moat of
the ir time in cafes and other public
places, where they harangue the peo
pic and receive "presents"—begging
is supposed to be forbidden. They go
long journeys: the Konlah dervishes
alien reaching India. livery Moham-
medan offers thorn food and lodging
on the way. to they gc there for
Amongst the more educated Turks
they have )o?t much of their ancient
prestige and they have come down to
he mere conjurers. Hut tho people
fear avd love them, nml did Tchelebi
at Konlah refuse to gird on Osntan's
sword, or did the sultan abo'lih the
ceremony, million* of rh<* faithful
would refuse to acknowledge Mehem-
fd V. as their caliph. There are. In
