It is related that Fechter was more
than 'once the victim of an outspoken
London gallery-god. On one occasion
in a melodrama, the tragedian, was
slowly paying over a sum of money to
the villain. Everything depended upon
whether he had sufficient money for his
purpose, and the paying out was most
deliberate so deliberate, Indeed, that
a member of the audience, wearying of
the scene, enlivened the proceedings by
yelling: -. "Say, Mr. Fechter," give him a

Once, when the Secretary of War.
Elihu Boot, had approved a punishment
of an offender in the Philippines with
a severity which seemed somewhat dis
proportionate to the crime, a visitor
ventured toask him whether he did not
consider such a penalty a good deal
like the old law of ' England which
hanged a man for stealing a- sheep.
'Certainly," was the.answer, "and we"
impose it in the same spirit, not as an
expiatory sacrifice, but as a preventive.
The thief was hanged, not because a
stolen sheep was regarded as worth a
human life, but in order that more
sheep should not be stolen." ., '-'
When President Roosevelt was a po
lice commissioner of New York, In
1895, Dr. Ahlwardt, the anti-Semitic
agitator from Berlin, visited the me
tropolis. Not a few of the New York
anti-Semites came to Roosevelt in
alarm lest the Jews should rise and
mob the orator on the night of his first
address. The commissioner's response
was to select from the whole police
force a squad of Hebrews whose physi
ognomy bespoke their race most con
spicuously; these officers he placed In
charge of the hall where Ahlwardt was
to appear, with a reminder that in this
country of free speech they could show
their good citizenship in no more strik
ing manner than by protecting the very
man who had come to hurl contempt
and abuse at their people. The effect
of this bit of comedy was to make Ahl
wardt ridiculous, and cause his whole
crusade to fall pitifully flat. f ,

Sentimental Beasene that Le id People
to the Cutler' chop,
A man of ah inquiring turn who had
read on the front of a cutler's shop the
sign, "Pocket Knives Bebladed and Re
handled," and who recalled the fact
that, when he was a boy, he used t
get a new blade put in sometimes when
he broke one out of his knife, found,
upon inquiry, that boys still get new
blades put In knives as they used to,
but that, as a matter of fact, the peo
ple who have pocket knives repaired
are mostly older persons, and that the
knives are likely to be valued for their
"I've carried that knife for fifty
years," says one gentleman, and he
hands over a knife that he's carried
since he was a boy, and that he'd hate
to lose. ; .- - - ' ' '-
Many knives brought In for repairs
are prized because they are gifts; . or
they were bought in some foreign coun
try, or they just suit the hand of the
man that uses them. There are various
more or less sentimental reasons why a
man may prefer to keep the old knife
rather than discard it for a new one.
Then it may be that in- some other
cases the knife is too valuable to
be thrown away. So that first and last
and for one reason and another out of
the vast number of pocket knives car
ried a good many come In to be mended.
The repairs made to pocket knives
are of a varied character. They may
consist, for example, in the putting on
of one new pearl side on a pearl-handled
knife to replace a side cracked or
flawed. With long use the blade at the
hinged end or the spring in the handle
or the rivet by which the blade Is held
may get worn so that the knife blade
won't , close properly, or may be the
spring Is no longer as It should be.
flush with the back of the knife. In fact.
a great many-things can happen to a
pocket knife, and of course the more
blades the more things can happen, but
the cutler repairs them all.
The phrase "rebladed and rehandled"
suggested, of course, the idea of a complete-renewal,
and the Inquirer won
dered if it might not be possible that
with the repair of a knife In one part
and another such a renewal might oc
cur. And the cutler said that not only
was It possible, but that sometimes It
actually did happen that with succes
sive renewals' of its various parts the
whole knife came sometimes to' be en
tirely renewed, and there was left of
the original knife nothing. ;
Locating Smokeless Guns.
. The English war office's new scheme
for the training of Tommy Atkins In
maneuvers embraces many novelties,
which will in due course see the light
of practical demonstration. Among
these none is' more . interesting or
fraught with greater possibilities than
the device fo training soldiers to lo
cate guns firing smokeless powder.
Arrangements are being .made to
carry out experiments in this direction
at Aldershot, and the sappers have al
ready constructed an ingenious battler
field upon Ash Ranges, which - will
make field firing very realistic. In the
trial to come an infantry . force will
approach the ranges, and will imme
diately be fired upon by distant guns.
Endeavor will be made to locate the
field pieces and the Infantry will move
forward in cover. 1 As they advance
surprise targets representing cavalry
and mounted infantry will spring upon
flank and front, an armored train will
run out, and all the features of a mod
ern battle-field will ' be ', represented
against the s advancing force. This
method will call for -great Initiative
from commanders, and the targets will
be so made, that good shooting will be
recorded by the targets being knocked
over. . "v
As an inducement to make infantry
take cover a new device has been
adopted. Artillerymen are to accom
pany : the advancing columns, and
when a distant gun fires its dnmmy
shell they will produce a correspond
ing explosion among the attackers by
means of a small mortar thus teach
ing the lesson of cover and caution as
no other -means short of live shell
could do. London Express.

One of the most interesting romances
of the great Southwest has recently
come to light, and Miss Maxine Double-
day, a young school-teacher at the lit
tle town of Laurel Valley Tex., is the
heroine. " Many iyears ago Maximilian
Doubleday was in love with the girl's
mother. When she married his brother
he enlisted in the Southern army and
the family lost trace of him.
The soldier, however, always kept his
sweetheart's picture. " Later he had a
life-size portrait of it made and of re
cent years it has hung in a costly frame

a visit to Brazos County. ' There' she
met a young man, Xee Payson.i'Who
told her of her marked resemblance to
the portrait of a beautiful woman
whom a friend of his loved In-his
youth. - . .
"And it Is a curious fact," the young
man added, "that his name is the same

A Sand Bow.

witnessed from the Antelope Island, in
the Great Salt Lake,.U..S. .One after
noon a gentleman -saw what appeared
to be a fine rainbow between the island
and the mainland," yet no rain was fall

was double the breadth of an ordinary
rainbow, ..and there was a secondary
bow above it On looking into the mat.
ter he traced the bow to a cloud of
sand from the shore of the lake. The
sand Is "oolitic," to use a geological
word, and the pearly spherules reflect
