THE LEADER. GUTHRIE OKCAHOMA
FREAK OF PHOTOORAPHY.
A QuMr Vnrn That flavors of Spirit
To sit for a photograph and have It
turn out to bo a proclso likonoss of
ono'a deceased father la a sort of un-
canny proceeding that does not happen
froquontly says the St. Louis Globe-
Domoorat Thoro is a young woman In
chargo of a modest little picture gal-
lery at Broadway and Convont street
who maintains with all scriousnoss
tnat an offort on hor part to reprduco
the featuros of an elderly customer In
a. tlntypo rosulted In producing a pho-
tograph of tho man's siro. The young
woman does not undortako to oxplain
tho phenomenon she only "knows
that it happened that's all." Whon
askd for hor oxporlonco with tho pic-
ture she said: "An old Gorman not
moro than flvo foot tall and aged about
66 walkod In and asked to have a tin-
typo taken. I posed him in tho atti-
tude ho wantod which happened to be
silting on a chair with his arm resting
on a small tabls. I went about tho
"work In my customary manner. Whan
I dovolopod the plate I was astounded
and a little frightened to find that the
picture was altogether dlfferoul from
what it should have been. Instead of
a llttlo man seatod by a table the tln-
typo showod a tall man standing Im-
mediately behind one. And the faco
of that man was entirely different from
the one of the man who had sat in
front of tho camera. Tho picture was
of n man aged at least SO and hud full
long whiskers reaching almost to his
waist. I explained to tho sitter that I
would have to make another tintype
as tho first effort had turned out a
failure. Ho wanted to see the picture
and when he had lookod at It a fow
seconds ho said In brokon English:
'Moln GottI That is a porfoci. likonoss
of my fathor who has boon dead for
many yoars.' These words frightonod
mo moro than over but tho man in-
sisted that tho photograph was tho
imago of his doad father and would
not listen to mo when I wantod him
to destroy it and make another of him.
Ho said ho would not give it up for
anything and paying me mote than I
-asked ho loft tho shop. Ho evidently
presumed that becauso tho picturo I
tried to make of him turned out to bo
a llkonesa of his doad fathor I usod
somo spiritualistic process in taking
tintypes for a fow days afterward a
"woman came Into tho placo and asked
to have a tintype made of her dead
Coming Homo from Death.
It is strange how noarly extremes of
feelings approach each other. A sud-
den exquisito Joy is almost pain and
tho story of it has a strain of pathos.
A touching instaace of this is related
by Mrs. Pickett widow of the famous
confederate general. When tho war
was over Mrs. Pickett waited for her
husband's return. Aftor tho battle of
Flvo Forks he had persistently refused
to surrender his shattered force and
prolonged tho unequal struggle. Soon
rumors came that ho had been killed
in a skirmish and .tho rumors were
corroborated by the newspapors and
oven by official reports. Hope seomod
at an end and Mrs. Pickott sat day
after day hor baby In hor lap in tho
qulot of despair. She can best tell her
own story: "Ono morning I had
mechanically dressed Baby Goorgo and
had taken him to tho window to hear
tho spring sounds and breatho the spring
halm and catch tho sunshlno's dripping
gold wreathing tho blossoms of the
magnolia and tulip trees. It was tho
tlmo when tho orchestra of tho year la
dn porfect accord whon all tho world Is
vocal. Through tho qulvor and ourl of
leaves the perfume of flowors and the
soft undertone of tho dawn-winds
camo tho words "Whoa Lucy; whoa
llttlo glrll' Oh thoso tones those
words that voice! They thrilled my
heart so that I wonder It did not burst
ffrotn very gladnoas! Such Joy BuchpBond thia atatCf who g!ys flho haa a
gratltudo as flooded my bouI only the
Giver of all good can know! All the
nrlvatlon and blood-stains of tho past
four years and the woes and trials
griefs and fears of those last dreadful
days were swept away by thoso blessed
words 'Whoa Lucy!' spoken In my
husband's tender tones. How I got
down tho stairs I do not know; I do
not romomber. With baby in ray arms
wo wore both of us In my husband's al-
most before Lucy had beon glvon Into
the hands of tho hostlor. I do not
know how to describe tho peaco tho
bliss of that momont It was too deop
and too saorod to be translatod Into
words. I think that it was akin to the
feeling that will como to me In the
hereafter when I have gone through all
thoso dark days of privation and star-
vation of heart and soul and at last
safo within tho golden gatos waiting
and listening shill hear again the voice
that said 'Whoa LuayT here bidding
me welcome there."

Now York Journal: Magistrate
Crano hag a hoart full of sympathy for
lovors. If there arc any young
Bwoothoarts who want a oheap
wedding they will And Mr. Crano
flitting In tho Essex Market po-
lice court roady to marry titom for
nothing. If ho is in tho mood ho will
also pay tho oxponsos of tholr honey-
moon. "I was marrlod young mysolf"
Mr. Crano sighod "and nftor I paid
the mlulstor thoro wasn't much moro
than enough loft to buy us a couple of
platos of ico croam for our wodding
breakfast." Charles Boomh 23 yoars
old and Minnie Daubt 17 yoars old
arrived in town from Bothlohom Pa. It
was tho old story of a stern paront
with largo and hoavlly clad foot. Wo'ro
Ponnsylvt - 'a Dutch pooplc" said tho
young man who rumbled with his hat
and was greatly omlmrrassod. The
young man said ho had boarded with
tho girl's paronts until ho was ejected
for proposing and Mlnnlo was thrgat-
oned with a boarding school. Sho
climbed out of a window and Joining
her sweetheart they came to New
York. "Wo'ro dead broke Judge" tho
young swain said "and If you chargo
anything for marrying us wo can't
pay It." While the magistrate was pre-
paring to perform the ceremony he
found out that tho girl was under 18
years of age and Hint she could not
be legally married In this state. He
told the pair that they must go over
to Jersey City where tho marriage
would bo legal whereupon they asked:
"What with?" Then the nuglstrato
passed around tho hat in court head-
ing tho subscription with ?1. They
securod ?5 nnd sot off with it to Jor-
sey City full of gratitude.
Learned M.on Who Must or Fifty Differ-
When ono considers tho difficulty of
acquiring even a "nodding acquaint-
ance" with two or throo languagoo it
seoms almost incredible that some men
should bo able to spoak with all the
fluency of a natlvo In twenty and oven
fifty strango tongues. It Is only a few
months since Dr. Gottlieb Loitncr the
most famous linguist of this genera-
tion dlod at Bonn in Gormany. Dr.
L9itnor who acted as Interpreter to an
army in the Crimean war could spoak
with oqual facility In no fewer than
fifty languagos; and many of tho more
nbatruso eastern tongues he know as
Intimately as his native German. But
there have been phenomenal linguists
In all ages from the far-away days of
Mlthrldates king of Pontus who could
converse with the subjects In each of
tholr twenty-flvo tongues; and from
the days of Cleopatra who never used
an interpreter In her relations with
the world's ambassadors. Pico della
Mlrandola a learnpd Italian of the
fifteenth century was eloquent In
twenty-two languagos and M. Ful-
gence Fresnel was familiar with twen-
ty and In tho sevonteonth contury
Nicholas Schmld a German peasant
translated tho Lord's Prayer Into as
many languages as there are weeks In
a year. Tho greatest Mngulst of all
time however was Cardinal Mezzofan-
tl who died half a century ago. Mezzo-
fantl's lln tic range was so groat
tnat he cou have conversed in a dif-
ferent o ory week for two years
without exhausting his vocabulary. In
all he was familiar with 114 languages
and dialects and in most of them he
could spoak with such accuracy and
purity of accent that he might have
been and often was mistaken for a

It would probably astonish the ma-
jority of mothers who guard their
davghtors so zealously from all house-
hold "drudgory" to bo accused of cruel-
ty and yot it has beon very Justly
claimed that thoro oan hardly bo a
more mistaken kindness In reality a
greater cruelty on the part of a
mother toward a daughter than for hor
to reliovo tho daughter from all aotlvo
participation In homo duties. To keep
their hands fair and delicate to sparo
them all care and trouble th's will
wferK vory well for a frw months or
yurs but what la the after conso-
unuuee? asks tho conscientious mother.
Your sllkon-hnlrod little girl what a
swoot attractlvo little creature she 1st
And you bring hor up like a plaything
as If sho were a llvo doll; but all your
fondnoM and tondorness and devotion
will not koop tho yoars back and she
soon grows to bo a woman. It Is power
greater than yours it is the Creator
himself who line imposed upon her a
destiny from which it is impossible for
jou to withhold hor If you would.tays
the Philadelphia North American. Tho
fairest child cannot always remain a
child In age or In stature. Will you
have her contlnuo only a child in prac
tical knowledge Ignorant of tho labors
that lnovltably devolve upon a woman?
She may be cradlod In the lap of lux-
ury and never hnvo known what It was
to have a wlah unfulfilled that money
could gratify; sho may marry "Just
the nicest himband in the world;" her
bridal presents may be unsurpassed in
costliness and splendor; her tour of
Europe and hor yoar of boarding are
completed; hor housekeeping and bar
misery and the inlsory of her husband
and housohold now begin. And why
tholr misery? Bocause for this most
Important function In domestic ocon-
omy you In your ill-Judged tondor-
noss havo loft her wholly unoducatod.
No hired help can ever mako up for
tho lack of knowlodge and qualifica-
tions In tho mlstross of a household. A
mother who has allowed hor daughtor
to grow up unlnBtructod In tho myste-
ries of housokooplng hns boon guilty of
an unklndnoss toward hor own child
which will bo life lasting In Its unhap-
py lnfluoncos. Many mothers will bo
roady to moot this argument of course
with tho excuse that thoro will bo plen-
ty of timo "later" for tho study of
houaakeoplng; but tho "later" Is very
apt to prove too late for tho thorough
knowledge that will Insure homo hap-
piness. There is no better medicino for tho
babies than Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. Its pleasant tasto and prompt
effectual cures mako it a favorito with
mothers and small children. It quick-
ly cures tholr coughs and co'ds.prcvet-
ing pneumonia or other serious con-
sequences. It also ourea croup and has
beon tscd in tens of thousands of cases
without a single failure so far as wo
havo been abla to learn. It not only
cures croup but when given as soon
as the croupy cough appears will pre-
vent tho attack. In c&eosot whooping
cough it iliqucties the tough mucus
making it easier to expectorate and
lessens tho servlty and frequency of
tho raroxysms of coughing thus de-
priving; that disease of all dangerous
consequences. For sale by C. R Ren-
