THE SOAP-PEDDLER'S WARNING.
And How It Was lalarraptwl by aa Kasv.
fells Ullla Womao.
A Ar-iiv-nltfht poildler own pled Ihe
entire end of Kddy and Murkot itrvets
a four eveuliirs ago and sold soap, snvs
the tntt Kranfiaco Eutmintr. Ills
wni'oa were not warranted to cure Call
fomla fli'a. nor yt to knot-k out
Hostoa'a liatle cultivator, "J. L. 8."
Hut he claimed pretty nearly the entire
earth for that soap of his; (aid that It
could give a man a txilntor on a horse;
a sure cure for dnmfrulT; tall the lucky
ntmilx r In the next lottery druwitijr,
etc., beside reinoviti"; sixits, talus,
and smut from the wearintt apparel.
He was a very voluble talker, and a
litilannce aa well. He churned out
"Sweet Violets" and "The flower that
bloom lu the (Spring, tra-la la." oa a
10-ctitit mouth llantimilia, while be
lullit-ruil his bead w ith hi soap and
produced a foam which would have
done credit to the storm-tossed ocean.
Unite a crowd gathered around the
fakir's Vinson. Thoy watched him
manipulate a pack of cards, draw a
glass of sherry from a bottle of Ink,
untie foiirlucu knots from a silk hand
kerchief iu two consecutive aecouds,
and draw a live rabbit from a near-by
"Now, gentlemen, yon have seen all
there Is to see in the way of legcrdo
iimiii. I'm no Holler, nor am 1 a
Herrmann. I'm a simple, plain, three
cornered, old-fualiionml, slnbslded,
ooiiiiiry-cut simp tieddlcrl Before I
attempt to extol the virtue of thi
lii)hly-pri.od article, which buhio cry
tor, mother Jump at, and fathors pny
the small price of 16 cent to keep peace
iu the fumily, I would like to give you
a word of warning. It's got nothing
to do with the soap. Here it Is, free,
(talis for uotliing, lu just two little
words don't inarrvl Klurrluge.geu'l'
men, Is the b ginning an' end uf all
troubles. Like a young bonr, whoa you
01100 gut married you've got all four
trouble ahead. 1 "
Just then a stout, encrgotio little
woman, with light hair and blue eyes,
pushed her way through the crowd,
llur face was flaming rod, her bund
were clinched, and it was perfectly
patent to the by-stundura that there
was trouble In store for somebody.
Whim the fakir caught sight of the
woman he wilted. Not one word could
ho say. Ho blow out one of hi giuo
lino torohllglitsln a feeble maimer and
Hltmnptud to draw reins on the sad
looking horse attached to his outfit.
The Tittle woman elbowod her way
right up to the wagon and tcly.ud the
soiip fakir by the coat-tail. She pulled
him down from hi scat to the side
walk. Ho was as palo a a ghost,
while the litt e woman continued to be
as rod ns a lose. She drew a oowhlde
from under her wrap and began to
bunt the fakir, clinging to him with
her right hand gripped on his coitt-ool-littv
"J-o-ohn," she gasped, between
blows, "you m-m-iscrablo, o-c-ontomp
tlblo i-i-pooiman of a mtin, von desert

You told me you ounio from back east.
(Thump!) You swore you had lots of
money. (Swash!) You didn't have a
beau, and I don't believe you ever will

understand that I'm a California

who docs me dirt. 1 washed, and

know It. You married me and you
loft me when you got tired of mo. I
never want to see your face again, but
I've been waiting six months to give
you what you're get ling right now.
"There, you ugly, deceitful wretchl"
"There" meant a lash In the face, which
nuido the soap-poddlor yelp with tntlu.
The crowd howled its approval of the
womnu't netloii, The woman herself
disappeared among the throng on Mar
ket street. The bruised aud buttered
soap-petldler blow out his reniululng
torch, touched up his antiquated steed,
aud silently stole away,

Recent investigations in Rome show
