Nearsightedness mid niomla.
A floating semiscientific paragraph
tells of the discovery that nearsighted
ness prevails to a larger extent among
blonds than among brunettes. The
discoverer refers to the number of spec
tacles worn in Germany as a proof of
the correctness of his statement His
deduction, however, is wrong. In Ger
man schools the fact is well known that
of the wearers of glasses the number of
Jewish children, who are almost invari
ably brunettes, is much larger than that
of blond German pupils. The same con
dition is observed here. Blindness rea"b

quick, slanting depression of the whole
surface that was, however, as unlike a
billow as itsolf was unlike a sea. Even
when a lighter zephyr played down its
long level the agitation was superficial,
and seemed only to momentarily lift a
veil of greenish mist that hung above its
immovable depths. Occasional puffs of
uusi uiieruateiy rose and fell along an
imaginary line across the field, as if a
current or air were passing through it,
but were otherwise inexplicable.
Suddenly a faint shout, apparently
somewhere in the vicinity of the line,
brought out a perfectly clear response.

voices, which it was impossible to local
ize. Yet the whole field was so dpvoid
of any suggestion of human life or
motion that it seemed rather as if the
denly articulate and intelligible.
'"N the road."
One of the voices here indicated itself
in the direction of the line of dust and
said "Comin'," and a man stepped out
from the wheat into a broad and dusty
With his presence three things became
apparent First, that the puffs of dust
had indicated tl existence of the in
visible avenue through the unlimited
and unfeneed field of grain; second,
that the stalks of wheat on either side
of it were so tall ns to actually hide a
passing vehicle, and third that a vehicle
had just passed, had lost a wheel and
been dragged partly into the grain by
its frightened horse, which a dusty man
was trying to restrain and pacify.
The horse, given up to equine hyster
ics, nnd evidently convinced that the or
dinary buggy behind him had been
changed into some dangerous and appall
ing creation, still plunged and kicked
violently to rid himself of it. The man
who had stepped ont of the depths of the
wheat quickly crossed the road, un
hitched the traces, drew back the vehicle,
and glancing at the travelers' dusty and
disordered clothes said with curt sym
pathy: "Spilt, too but uot hurt ehV"
"No, neither of us. I went over with
the buggy when the whect cramped, but
she jumped clear."
He had made a gesture indicating the
presence of another. The man turned
quickly. There was a second figure a
young girl standing beside the grain
from which ho had emerged, embracing
a few stalks of wheat with one arm and
a hand in which she still held her para
sol, while she grasped her gatherel
skirts with the other, and trying to find
a secure foothold for her two neat, nar
row slippers on a crumbling cake of
adobe above the fathomless dust of the
roadway. Her face, although annoyed
and discontented, was pretty, and her
light dress and slim figure were sug
gestive of a certain superior condition.
The man s manner at once softened
with western courtesy. He swung his
broad brimmed hat from his head and
bent his body with the ceremoniousuess
of the country ball room. "I reckon the
lady had better come up to the shanty,
ont o' the dust and sun, till we kin help
you get these things fixed," he said to
the driver. "I'll send round by the road
for your hoss, and have one of mine fetch
np your wagon.
"Is it far." asked the girl, slightly ac
knowledging his salutation, without wait
ing for her companion to reply.
Only a step this way," he answered.
motioning to the field of wheat beside
"What! In there? I never could go
in there," she said decidedly.
It's a heap shorter than by the road
and not so dusty. I'll go with you and
The young girl cast a vexed look at
her companion as the probable cause of
all this trouble and shook her head.
But at the same moment one little foot
slipped from the adobe into the dost
again. She instantly clambered back
with little feminine shriek, ejacu
lated, "Well, of all things!" and then
fixing her annoyed blue eyes on the
stranger asked impatiently: "Why
conldn't I go there by the road in the
wagon. I could manage to hold on and
"Because I reckon youl'd find it too
powlful hot waitiu' here till we got
ronnd to ye."
There was no doubt it was very hot,
the radiation from the baking roadway
beating np under her parasol and prick
ing hi.' cheek bones and eyeballs like
needles. She gave a fastidious little
shudder, furled her parasol, gathered
her skirts still tighter, faced about and
said, "Go on then." The man slipped
backward into the ranks of stalks, part
ing them with one hand and holding ont
the other as if to lea1 ber. Bat she
evaded the invitation by holding ber

disappeared behind them, and they seem
ed floating in a choking green trans
But the effect was only momentary;
few steps further she found that she
could walk with little difficulty between
the ranks of stalks, which were regu
larly spaced, and tbe resemblance now
changed to that of a long pillared con
servatory of greenish glass that touched
all objects with its pervading hue. She
also found that the close sir short
ber bead was continually freshened by
the interchange of currents of lower
temperature from below, as if the whole
vast field had a circulation of it OTC-n
and that the adobe
feet was gratefully cool to her tread.
There was no dust, as he had said; what
had at first half suffocated her seemed
to be some stimulating aroma of crea
tion that filled the narrow green aisles,
and now imparted strange vigor and
excitement to her as she walked along.
Meantime her guide was not conversa
tionally idle. Now, no doubt she had
never seen anything like this before? It
was the ordinary wheat, only it was
grown on adobe soil the richest in the
valley. These stalks, she could see her
self, were ton and twelve feet high. That
was the trouble, they all ran too much
to stalk, though the grain vield was
"snthen pow'fnl." She could tell that
to her friends, for he reckoned he was
the only young lady that had ever
walked nndor such a growth. Perhaps
she was new to Californy? He thought
so from the start Well," this was Cali
forny, and this was not the least of the
ways it could "lay over" every other
country on God s yearth. Many folks
thought it was the gold and the climate;
but she could see for herself what it
could do with wheat Ho wondered if
her brother had ever told her of it No?
The stranger wasn't her brother nor
cousin nor company no. oulv the
hired driver from a San Jose hotel,
who was takin' her over to Maj.
Randolph's. Yes, he knew the old
major; the ranch was a pretty place,
nigh onto three miles further on. Now
that he knew the driver was no relation
of hers, he didu't miud telling her that
the buggy was a "rather old consarn"
and the driver didn't know his business.
1 es, it might be fixed un so as to take
her over to the major's. There was one
of their own men a young fellow who
could do anything that could be douo
with wood nnd iron a reg'lar genius
and he'd tackle it. It might take an
hour, but she'd find it unite cool waiting
in the shanty. It was a rough idace.
for they only camped out there during
the season to look after the crop, and
timo. as she going to stay long at
the major's? Ho noticed she had not
brought her trunk with her. Had she
known the major's wife long? Pcrhans
she thought of settling in the neighbor
hood? All this naive, good humored question
ingso often cruelly misunderstood as
mere vulgar curiosity, but as often the
courteous instinct of simple, unaffected
people to entertain the stranger by in
viting mm to talk or what concerns him
self rather than their owuselves was
nevertheless, I fear, met only by mono
syllables from tho young lady or an im
patient question in return. Sho scarcely
raised her eyes to the broad, jean Blurted
back that preceded hor through the
grain until tho man abruptly ceased
talking and his manner, without losing
its half paternal courtesy, became grav
er. Hho was beginning to be conscious
of her incivility and was idly trying to
tiiinic or something to say when lie ex
claimed, with a slight air of relief,"Hore
we are," and tho shanty suddenly ap
peared before them.
It certainly was very rough a more
shell of unpaintod boards that scarcely
roso above tho level of the surrounding
grain, ami fow yards distant was invisi
ble. Its slightly sloping roof, already
warped and shrunken into long fissures
that permitted glimpses of tho steel blue
sky above, was evidently intended only
as a shelter from tho cloudless sun in
those two months of rainless days and
dewless nights when it was inhabited.
Through tho open doors ami windows
sho could soo a row of "bunks," or rudo
sleeping berths, against tho walls,
furnished with coarse mattresses and
blankets. As the young girl halted, the
man, with an instinct of delicacy, hurried
forward, entered the shanty, and drag
ging a rudo bench to the doorwny,
placed it so that she could sit beneath
the shade of the roof, yet with her back
to these domestic, revelations. Two or
three men who had lecn apparently
lounging there roso quickly and unob

her a tin cup of duliciously cool water.
exchanged a fow hurried words with his
companions, and then disappeared with
them, leaving her alone.
Her first sense of relief from their
company was, I fear, stronger than any
other feeling. After a hurried glance
around the deserted apartment she arose,
shook out her dress and mantle, and then
going into the darkest corner supported
herself with one hand against the wall,
while with the other Bhe drew off one
by one her slippers from her slim, strip
ed stockinged feet, shook and blow out
the dust that had penetrated within and
put thorn ou again. Then perceiving a
triangular fragment of looking glass
nailed against the wall, she settled the
strings of hor bonnet by the aid of its
reflection, patted the fringe of brown
hair on her forehoad with her separated
five fingers, as if playing an imaginary
tune on ber brow, and came back with
maidenly abstraction to the doorway.
everything was quiet and her seclu
sion seemed unbroken. A smile played
for an instant in the soft shadows of her
eyes and mouth as sho recalled the
abrupt withdrawal of the men. Then
her mouth straightened and her brows
slightly bent It was certainly very un
mannerly in them to go off in that way.

Nevertheless, after another Impatient
pause she desperately put np ber parasol

Presently she was conscious of a faint
sound of hammering not fur away.

My niece, Emetine Ilawley, was,
taken with spitting blood, and she
became verv much ntnrniod foorlnn
that dreaded disease, Consumption.
She tried nearly all kinds of medi

Finally she took German Syrup and
she told me it did her more good
than anything she ever tried. It
stopped the blood, gave her strength
auu case, unu a gooa appetite. I
had it from hor own lips. Mrs.
