Darkey Meant to Furnleh Mere Pleas-

Two men in a southern town, get-

that one of them could not hire a

known haunted house, which no one

man offered him* $5 to stay in the
house during the night, keeping
awake all of the time.
The negro entered the place in the
evening, and kept walking back and
forth to keep from going to sleep.
Promptly on the stroke pf midnight
the ghost appeared. Unlike most
ghosts, this one was pleasant and af-
fable and, seeing the man, said:
"Ah, good evening; It seems there
will be two Of us here to-night."
With bulging eyes and drooping
Jaw the other managed to stammer:
•Y-y-yas, sah, b-b-but dey won't be
And suiting the action to his words,
he went out of the house and down
the road as hard as he could run,
with the ghost in close pursuit. When
completely out of breath, the darky
sat down by the roadside to rest, and
the ghost, coming up, blandly remark-
ed: "That was a very pleasant run
we had just now."
And the darky replied: "Yas, sah

"City houses with steam-heating are
all very well," said Chr.rles Felton
Pidgin, the statistician of Boston, "but
when it comes to Christmas games
they are a little lacking.
"A friend of mine heard a loud,
rasping noise In his parlor last Christ-
mas eve very late.
"In great alarm he got up and has-
tened down to the delicate and pale
parlor, with its coloring of white and
pink and gold, to find there, all black
with soot smears, his little white-
robed son, whom he had thought last
asleep in bed.
" 'Why, why,' he cried, 'what does
this mean, Willie?'
"The little fellow, lifting a cake of
soot out of his fair hair, pointed rue-
fully to the ornamental fireplace,
wherein there was room for about
three logs the size of lead pencils.
"'I'm playin' Santa Claus,' he said,
'and I—I can't get up the chimney.'"

Smith Had Plenty of Soap.
Fred B. Smith is remembered as
having been one of the best known
hotel keepers in this country, and
was famed far and wide as a natural
humorist. One night while on duty
as manager of Hotel Kendall, South
Framingham, three gentlemen arrived
on a late train, and, being tired and
grimy from their long ride, requested
rooms with baths.
. The house was short on linen that
night, and the housekeeper reported
that one towel was all there was to
be had. Smith scratched his head,
trying to think how to "fix things
up," and the/guests "kicked" at the.
delay. At last a happy thought oc-
curred to him, and, calling a bellboy,
ne said: "Johnnie, bring these gen-
tlemen that towel and three big
pieces of soap."—Boston Herald.

"I really believe," said the diner
out, "that the reason people In thlB
city are so fond of watercress Is that
it brings a mental 'Old Homestead-
play on the.dlnner table. I have seen
people In New York eat watercress
avidiously who, to my certain know-
ledge, would not take the trouble to
walk down to the brook and gather it
in their native village. Just start
a watercress conversation the next
time any comes on the table and see
what happens. All you have got to
do iB to say, 'When I waa a boy I used
to gather watercress out of a brook
which ran right through the farm.' it
you want to be very artificial say
'place' Instead of farm.
-Vast quantities of watercress are
consumed by people living in New
York and the supplying of It Is a
profitable industry. And If it were
not for the sentiment precious little
of it would be eaten. But, somehow,
nothing does bring the country like
a dish of watercress in a crowded city.
Of course, we seldom, ate cress In our
childhood. We preferred dandelions-
boiled with pork. But the watercress
whispers so alluringly of the brook
and the spring that in the ctty it is a
treat to us from the farm. No other
vegetable, or herb, or whatever you
may please to call it, has quite the
home bringing qualities of water-
cress."—New York Press.
Through the Efforts of the Late Mil-

The last act of Marshall Field In the
world of local finance, in which he had
become a dominant figure in recent
years, was in connection with the lm-1
pending failure of the Walsh banka.
It was through his influence and at his
suggestion that the clearing house
committee adopted the plan of liqui-
dation which was put into effect when
the institutions closed. Mr. Field
prevented a financial crash that might

The commmittee had been in ses-
sion with the comptroller of the cur-
rency for hours." It was late at night
before Mr. Field was appealed to. He
went from his residence to where the
Chicago financiers were in session.
The situation was briefly outlined and
he Immediately proposed the solution.
Several members of the committee de-
murred to accepting the responsibility
for the deposits of the Walsh banks.
Mr. Field pointed out the shock to
Chicago's financial credit if the banks
should be permitted to fall, and in-
sisted that his plan be adopted. it
has been stated that he even declared
he would go ahead himself if the
banks would not.

Through Coffee Drinking
Some people question the statements
that coffee hurts the delicate nerves
of the body. Personal experience with
thousands proves the general state-
ment true and physicians have records
of great numbers of cases that add to
The following is from the Rockford,
Dr. William Langhorst of Aurora
has been treating one of the queerest
cases of lost eyesight ever in history.
The patient la 0. A. Leach of Beach
county, and In the last four months he
had doctored with all of the specialists
about the country and has at last re-
turned home with tha fact impressed
on hla mind that his case is Incurable.
A portion of the optic nerve haa
been ruined, rendering his sight so
limited that he Is unable to see any-
thing before him, but he can see plain-
ly anything at the side of him* There
have been but few cases of its kind
before, and they have been caused by I
whisky or tobacco. Leach has never
used either, but has been a great cof-
fee drinker, and the specialists have
decided that the case has been caused
by this. Leach stated himself that
for several years he had drank three
cups of coffee for breakfast, two at
noon and one at night. According to
the records of the specialists of this
country this is the first case ever
caused by the use of coffee.
The nerve is ruined beyond aid and
his case is incurable. The fact that
makes the case a queer one is that the
sight forward has been lost an$ the
side sight haa been retained. Accord-
ing to the doctor's statement, the
young man will have to give up cof-
fee or the rest of his sight will fol-
low and the entire nerve be ruined.—
Let It be remembered that tha eyes
may be attacked In one caae and tha
stomach in another, while In others It
I may be kidneys, heart, bowels or gen-
eral nervous prostration. The remedy
is obvious and should be adopted be-
fore too late.
