He vas a quiet, inoffensive aid fellow, a bit queer in some of his actions, but he minded his own business, was never cross to the children, ami Mrs. Reagan, who lived on the ground floor, had a warm spot In her heart for him. She was about the only one in the neighborhood who knew his name John V. Gilchrist and his age 84 years this eoming spring. Mrs. Reagan cooknl the old man's meals and looked after him as much as he would permit in his hermit like existence. Every day the old man went around tie corner to Schnorr's grocery store to buy a few things to eat and a quart of milk, his favorite beverage. It was concerning the milk that his peculiarities were most pronounced. He would never carry it home save in a new tin pail. Every day before purchasing milk he bought a shining new tin pail. When it was empty he laid it aside, never to be used again. "I guess my time is nearly up," said the old man to Schnorr on Friday afternoon, as he was having a new pall filled with milk. The groceryman said he did not think so. "Oh, yes it is," continued Gilchrist, "and I am ready to go any time." Before daylight yesterday morning Mrs. Reagan heard him groaning, and going upstairs she found him apparently near death. She summoned a doctor, but the old man soon passed away, from no particular disease, but because he had lived his allotted time. yhen daylight came and the policemen went to take charge of the case they found the worn out old body lying on a mattress on the floor. There was no furniture, save a bureau and two battered barrels. But piled head high and occupying half the large room were the tin pails that had been used only once to carry home the day's supply of milk. There were nearly 300 of them neatly piled up. and the boys of the neighborhood had carried away hundreds more that the old man had thrown out of the window. Late in the day an undertaker from New Jersey appeared and took the body. Over in South Orangeaway the dead man had two wealthv 0istra r, the neighbors had heard, who had made him an allowance of q a week, and on this he had lived happily among his tin pails until death carried him out of the two bare rooms in the secluded rear tenement and left the pails behind.

Chadwick and Sparks were arrestee several weeks ago. and recently were released on bail, but no sooner wort thev at liberty again than thev re sumed the practice for which they had been arrested. A committee of citizens was formed and a woman was indueed to send a note to the fellow s making an appointment. The men fell into the trap and several dozen masked persons fell upon them, and after stripping them covered them with tar and feathers and then rolled them in the sand. They were warned not to return k the city. T.N !'Ober- - we?" Arthur,,art fond f "Martha-Tha was the reason he made his way into the parlor where he could see the sing er. She sang it too well. Hers was not an intensely emotional dramatic voice but lilting, tuneful and happy, well suited to Flotow's music. When she turned away from the piano he sought an introduction that he might tell her how much he had enjoyed her rendition of the beloved air. "I suppose," he said, "that all compliments, in whatever language they may be couched, have been worn threadbare, but for all that I want to add my voice to the general clamor and tell you that you have given me great pleasure." "That is the highest compliment one can ever receive," she replied. "If one were to hear that often. 'You have given me pleasure.' it would seem that there were really something worth living for." She looked up and smiled and the thought was born on his mind that her voice was the least important of her beautiful qualities and that even if she were deaf and dumb he would think her the most delightful woman he had ever met. Still the voice was there and he liked her all the better for having it. "A woman with heart and lips attuned to music makes life a paradise for any man," he said, tentatively. She smiled again. "Then," she said, "a man so blessed could never be justified in wandering away from paradise." "No man would care to do so," he answered, eloquently. One sunny afternoon in the latter part of the same week he availed him-te- lf of her permission to call and went around to her apartment. She had a severe headache and her face was pale and her eye dull and heavy. "Don't you want to take a walk?" he asked. "The bracing air and the will do you good." "Oh," she murmured, with a deprecating look in the mirror opposite, "I can'U I'm such a fright." Then, "You'd be ashamed of me," she said, lightly. "Ashamed of you!" he repeated, with unusual ardor. "Miss Monroe, I'd never be ashamed of you." He was right about the effect of the constitutional. It was wonderfully ben eficial for when she returned her face flt'ly " sun-bhi- ne .J ft. ' "Four dollars a week." "I thought so. That's simply o rageous. You women think a man's, made of money. It seem3 to rae that if you'd give a little attention to house hold affairs instead of sitting around singing and playing and painting from morning till night and from night till morning, we could have far more comfort at far less expense. I should think you could do most of the cooking yourself. The majority of women know all about those things." "Yes, Arthur," said Mrs. Hartman, faintly, "and I intend to learn, too. I'll get up a breakfast one of these mornings that'll surprise you." "Well, you can't be too quick' about It," replied Mr. Arthur Hartman. When the baby was two months old they discharged the cook. Mrs. Hartman had learned to prepare such dainty, tempting dishes that her husband would allow no one less skilled to cater to his delicate stomach. The Hartmans did not keep a nurse girl. Mr. Hartman stoutly maintained that a woman who didn't know enough to take care of her own children wasn't fit to be a mother, so his wife administered catnip tea and broiled steak at the same time and washed dishes between the tantrums of the Hartman son and heir. Neither did they keep a maid. A maid was so apt to let the dust accumulate on chairs and mantels, Mr. Hartman said, andilthere was one thing he disliked moff than another it was dust. Ills wife was the most thorough sweeper and duster he had ever come across and it hurt him to the quick to think of entrusting such, important duties to another. Rose Hartman was too thoroughly conscientious to c!o anything in a halfhearted manner und it wasn't long until she had developed into a model Mr. Hartman admitted housekeeper. that and wa3 very proud of her. The easel stood untouched in the corner in those days, the piano was never opened unless they had company and Rose's sweet voice was hushed except when crooning lullabies to the baby. She was very pale and thin, too, but Mr. Hartman never seemed to notice that. But then he spent a good many evenings away from home and perhapB he had no time to give heed to such trivial things. On those evenings when he went out calling he generally came in about 10 o'clock. But one evening it wa almost 11 when he turned the key in the lock and walked into their little sitting room. Hi wife was etlll tip, tor tho baby had been ailing and fretful and all the mother's art had been powerless to soothe the little fellow. Mr. Hartman heard the low, fitful crying before tho door was fairly opened, but it did not disturb him that night. A happy, smile played lound his Hps and he sat down opposite his wife and communed with himself for several minutes in contented silence. The baby fell asleep at last. The cessation of the mournful cries brought Mr. Hartman to self-satisfi- ed AT MQNTE CARLO. Characterlittic't About Those Who Flay at ThU Fatuous Kesort. From a letter on the present season at Monte Carlo, the famous resort and gambling place, which is published in a Paris paper, the following extract is not without interest to American read- ers, says the Baltimore Sun. In the Salon de Jeux each afternoon and evening there is a great crowd just now and considerable sensation is being created by the playing of some of the more determined punters. Most remarked among the boldest is an American artist, a painter, recently decorated with the cross of the Legion of Honor. He beta large sums without a moment's hesitation, and frequently makes enormous wins. It is all done so rapidly as to astonish lookers-on. The gentleman in question wins or loses with but little show of excitement and is certainly and emphatically what the French style beau joueur. lie seldom sits at a table, always plays roulette and walks about from table to table, attracting niurh attention by his .impetuous play. in marked contrast to his style is that of a stout gentleman, who never plays except when seated, and who, having made selection of a number upon the roulette table, remains faithful to it, and, with an air of unending patience, covers it with gold until, having made a large win, he slowly retires, all the while having remained in his seat impassivenot even the most marrd-ou- s good fortune causing his vacant expression to alter in the least, it i3 curious to note that, while the ether player seems to be so popular and generally liked, the stout party, whoso good or bad fortune seems to have bo little efTect upon him. is decidedly n popular.

"Cost pas un honime," exclaimed a vivacious little French lady, after the punter had bo put into his pocket the francs he had won In a single coup, 'Vest one machine."

"I don't know whether you ever noticed or not," he went on, "but Mrs. Winston has a glorious voice.

Other women don't begin to retrogade as soon as they get a hushand. I never thought you would. I tell you this thing of a woman forgetting everything she ever knew, just because she's married, is all a mistake. Now, that music at Winston's was an inspiration. It made me feel like a different man. Shall I carry the young man upstairs for you?" "No, thank you," said Mrs. Hartman, and her voice was very calm and low. He whistled a few bars from "Mir-tha- " and went to bod. Ills wife bowed low over the little form in her lap.

"There isn't a doubt," said he, when commenting on it, "that a brisk walk on a fine afternoon is the best tonic In the world." The flush deepened a little then. Somehow, the glow and the sparkle were always there when he saw her after that. She was just the sort of girl he had long dreamed about, beautiful, good and true, and he loved her dearly. "I have loved you ever since I heard you sing 'Martha' that night," he said. "Will you come with me so that I can hear it often?" "Oh," she cried, "I'm not worthy. I'm so ignorant." "Ignorant!" he exclaimed. "What is it you don't know? Why, you know everything. Your voire is divine; you paint, you write a little and you are a linguist. What more would you want?" "Oh, I know I can do all. those things," she laughed, "but I am afraid they won't amount to much after we You'll want me to be are, married. more practical.
