ON A FAN
My friend Charnley keeps lu a glass
case set up ou brackets air.tlnst a wall
In Ms smoking room' at home a paper
and bamboo fan. There la nothing
about It to Indicate that it Is of espec'al
nlue. Indeed. 10 or 13 cents would be
I Rood price for It. It la spread out to
show some Chines characters daubed
across Its face. It occurred ,to me that
this 'uscriptioD might have something
to do with the care taken In the fan's
preservation, and on evening after
dinner while In the room where It was
1 asked Charnley If It were not so.
"I should think ao." he said, knocking
the asbes off his cigar. "It's alt In the
"Well, oat with If I knew by his
expression there was a story coming.
"You remember some years ago," he
began, "I was obliged to go to China on
business. I needed only to visit Pe
king. Nankin and a few other poluts.
In going from Nankin to Khaifeng I
net with an adventure. I was on
horseback and well armed. Hearing a
commotion on the road before me, I
spurred on and found a mandarin be
ing robbed by a couple of bandits, who
were trying to kill him before taking
sis money. His position was very
slain to me, and, dashing among them,
1 fired at both of the assailants In rapid
succession, purposely missing them,
since I didn't care to kill any one and
probably be delayed by doing so. The
robbers ran away, and the mandarin's
servants slnnk back to him. lie was
the most grateful man you ever saw.
II nee we couldn't speak the same lan
guage, be could only thank me with
his eyes, which told InVTeellngs plain
enough. lie picked up that fan, which
luring the melee had fallen In the
road, shook the dust off It and, taking a
writing stick, wrote that Inscription
across Its face, handing the fan to me.
"I supposed that be had written his
"Glad to have your autograph,' I
said, though I knew he didn't under
stand me, and we went on together In
silence till we reached the next Til
lage, where we parted with many fare
wells which neither understood. Then
I went on alone.
"I beard a great deal about the rising
wrath In China against the 'foreign
devils,' but didn't suspect It was a
premonition of the celebrated Boxer
movement then about to break out
Reaching a mission station In a small
town, I concluded to remain with the
family of Mr. Flsk, Its manager, for
a few days. On the afternoon of my
arrival his daughter Evelyn, a girl of
twenty, ssw me using the fan. She
could read the inscription, of course,
and said to me:
" Take care of that fan. Don't .lose
it as you value your life.'
"I asked her why, but at the moment
he was called away, and I did not see
her for some time. I don't remem
ber whether wben I did see her I bad
forgotten the matter or bad no op
portunity to ask again. At any rate. It

Tiie eruption by this time had appeared

iav and hands. The Uvi dnetur in my
native county advised me to u, aiwnio

to tathe the so-s in a mixture which
favp almost intolerable pain. In addi

my hair began to fall out and I was rapidly
becoming bald. I used 'g ,

having used almost everything else, I
thought I would try Cuticura Ointment,

heart, when he caught sight of the let

to be paralysed by the Inscription.
Ihea the leader, calling for a writing
tick, wrote something over our door,
and the mob rushed ou, yells and
ihrloks following In Its wake.
They bad no sooner started away
than, the strain ou Evelyn having been
relaxed, she fainted, and I caught her

went out to look at what the Chinaman

MAKE THE FEET FLAT.
A Chiropodist 8aye Injury Is Often
Dons by Low Heels.
This talk about high heels breaking
the arch of the foot la all nonsense,"
said a chiropodist who made a special
ty of the "broken arch" difficulty. "It
Is tho spring hool and very low heel
that cause the trouble. Mothers should
never be guilty of putting spring heel
shoes on their children, for It means a
flat and ugly foot lu later years. Just
as soon as a child can toddle around It
should le provided with a soft, pliable
shoo which has the tiniest bit of a heel.
This tends to throw the weight of the
btxly forward on tho ba'l of tho foot,
where It Is most easily supported, ami
relieves the strain ou the arch.
"You have often noon small children
who have Just learned to walk run
over the heels of their shoes, haven't
you? It Is uot because they are un
steady on their feet, which Is the popu
lar opinion, but because their weight Is
resting on the arch or where the bone
of the lower leg meets the bono of the
foot The flat foot may begin at this
very time, so great rare should be tak
en aa to jtiSt what shoes the little tod
dlera wear. In some of the European
countries little ones wear one-quarter
Inch heels on their shoes, but Auicrlcau
mothers seem to think that spring heels
are smarter and wore healthful.
"For sdnlts the moderately high
Cuban heel Is Uie most comfortable
and sensible for ordinary wear. The
flat heels and the common sense beet
should both be tabooed. Even the
French beel la not particularly Injuri
ous If It la only worn occasionally
and when the woman will not walk
much, but cf course It Is ridiculous for
a walking boot Hut, whatever you do,
avoid the low heel." New York Press.
