T Is easy enough to break on"
ivitb a woman. Jack; don't
worry so. Sue will take It tiara
for a time, but if you must break her
heart sooner or later, save your own
out of the wreck If you can. After all,
a woman's heart Is hard to break. It is
'off with the old love and on with tbe
new with the whole sex. I liud."
"But you don't know tbe girl, Ben.
She Is a blamed sight too good for me.
8he Is one of those sweet, relined girls,
whose affection absorbs her whole soul, .
and I know she loves me as few men
are ever loved. Every look, word or ac
tion tells me it is true, and, though I
feel tbat I have made a mistake, Ben.
I cannot tell her so."
"Don't tell her a thing. Jack. That Is
not the way to manage u woman. Sim
ply disgust her with herself. Stop send
ing her (lowers and kulckuacks; don't
take her out somuch, and when you
do, praise up some other woman to her.
And. Jack, don't go over so often; tell
her you are taking up a new study or
porting nights. She won'tbelleve you,
of course, but that won't matter. Make
engagements and fail to keep them, or
go over late, or be seized with a desire
to return early. Oh. there are a hun
dred and one ways to aid you. You can
tease her a little when she Is serious
and be serious when she Is gay. In
fact, differ with her as much as possi
ble without being antagonistic, and find
fault and pick to pieces the little argu
ments she may give In defense. And be
ns entertainingly disagreeable as you
can without really appearing to be so.
I will wager tbat within a mouth you
will be ns free as air. Tbe girl will
shake you. No woman cau stand the
pressure. I have tried It, my boy, and
I know. My old-time sweetheart, Fran
ce Oraysou, Is now the wife of a far
better man than myself, and the happy
mother of a charming boy. Of course
Ehe did not name tbe child for me
but I did not expect It."
"1 believe I will try It, old man. But
I am fond of the girl In a way, and If
you bear of our marriage you can know
I lost heart."
"Cheer up, Jack, my boy," said Ben
Mallory, wringing bis baud. "Love Is a

lie bad lived for years, returning to his

ewect little half-sister, Kitty Kerapster.

ceased to write to her big, handsome
brother ns often as was her wont.
Ben had not seen Jack Downs since

"That fellow Is a fool," murmured
Ben, as be unfolded a small missive J
from home. "Ho loved that girl and
didn't kuow It"
Ben smoothed out tbe paper and read:
"Kitty does not seem happy. The child
never complains, but she always loved
you, and you might cheer her up bit.
"Kilty unhappy!" Ben ran his linger
through his stinight, black hair nnd
thought hard. "It Is some man," bo

Two days later Ben sat In Kitty

reflecting the tears lu her honest gray
Ben drew her down beside him on a
divan. "Tell me about It Utto girl."
"There Is not much to tell," she wills
pored, nestling close lu his strong, lov

when weary with play.
"I loved him. Ben. O, I did lovo him
so! He was kind and true nt first and

St-1 m rs for Crushing; Ice.
The great and powerful Ice-crusblng
steamers of the lakes are without ex
ception car ferries that Is. they trans
port whole trains of passengers and
freight curs from one terminal of a rail
way Hue to the other, thus controlling
an Important link where brluges would
These Ice-cballcnglng ferries ply the
straits of Mackinac, tbe Detroit River
and across Lake Brie from tbe Amerl
can to -the Canadian shore. They are
hugs steel-shod craft weighing several
thousand tons and some of them have
cost more than $350,000 each. Fitted
with propellers at either end. they
crumble tbe Ice by the pressure of their
bulk as though Its three or four feet
were but tbe thickness of a cardboard,
Whatever else Is wanting, adventure
Is not lacking In tbe lives of the men
who spend tbe months of snow aboard
the majestic monsters which are to the
lake tracks what tbe snowplows are to
tbe railroad lines. A few winters since,
with a thermometer ranging from 18 to
30 degrees below zero, one of the car
ferries was caught In an Immense Ice
field on Lake Erie and tlocted around
for a few months with a great mass of
Ice piled mountains high around her. A
portion of the crew was, of course,
obliged to remain aboard and each day
a couple of tbe men made an attempt
not always successful to go ashore In
order to secure provisions and supplies.
Ofttlmes this meant a long, dreary 'trip
across tbe Ice, and frequently, when a
yawning chasm of dark-hued water In
tervened between tbe sbore and the
edge of tbe Icefield, tbe foragers were
not able to return to their Imprisoned
comrades for Intervals of several days.
Receives a "Flower of Hell."
E. C. Downey, an attorney of Churu
busco, Ind., who spent many months In
Central America, has recently received
from a friend In Guatemala one of the
most wonderful species of flowers
known to mankind. It Is called tbe
"rose of hell" and grows only In tbe
vicinity of Antigua, near tbe crater of
tbe volcano of Fuego. It Is looked
up'on by the native Indians with a su
perstitious dread and Is named tbe
"rose of bell" because It thrives better
near tbo steaming Fuego than away
The Indians regard the crater of Fu
ego as the doorway of tbe Infernal re
gions and this (lower as being pro
duced by the evil spirits associated with
tbo demons of the sulphurous cllmo
where the souls of tbe sinful all go.
The flower Is very deadly and when
boiled Into a liquid and given to any
animal death rapidly follows without
pain, as quiet and peaceful as sleep.
Science docs not record another In
stance where this wonderful flower Is
found except In Guatemala, and tbe
only place It Ib found In tbat country
Is near the doorway of the famous
Fuego volcano. Several universities of
this country will send nfter specimens
of the rare flower nnd use It for ex
periments and demonstration to tbe
classes In botany,

Five Cent' Worth of Travel.
Wo know a bright boy whoso great
longing is to travel. Ills parents have
no means with which to gratify him
In that respect He occasionally earns
a few pennies by selling papers and do
ing errands. Instead of spending tho
money foolishly, he carefully treasures
It In a small Iron box, which bo calls
his safe. One day, after earning 0
cents, he dropped them Into tho box In
tho presence of a companion of about
bis own age, and exclaimed: "Thero
goes 5 cents' worth of travel!"
"What do you mean?" asked the other
boy. "How can you travel on 5 cents?"
"Five cents will carry mo a mile and
a half on tbe railroad. I want to seo
Niagara Falls before I die. I am nearly
four hundred miles from them now,
but every 5 cents I earn will bring
them nearer, and a great many other
places that are worth seeing. I kuow

Last August a party of six friends
from IMalullelil, N. J., imssed a fort
night lu camp on tbe upper west
branch, occupying tbe log cabins at
Sours High Lauding, so called.- lu ho
large a party there was considerable
refut food, and ttil-t was dumped about
a mile from the camp lu the wood.
The garlmgo pile failed to grow, and
the entailers were at a Ioi to account
for Its disappearance. Filially oue of
the men made up tils mind to go to the
scene nnd watch fur tbe animal that
came around regularly every day to
feed on the crusts of the table, llu
went to the point one morning aud sat
In the-bushes and waited. Soon he
beard a noise, nnd lu a minute or so a
big black bear appeared. Then came
another, and llnnlly a third. They ate
all of the garbage aud then went away.
The I'lalntleld man conceived a desire
to photograph the animals. He put up
a Job with tbe cook, and the next morn-In-
a good half bushel of truck was
scattered for the benefit of tbe bears.
The camera man loaded and cocked
bis machine, sought a favorite spot and
waited. He bad not waited long be
fore two bears lumbered out of tho
woods and went to work cleaning up
tbe potato peelings, bacon rinds, etc.
Tbe man watched the brutes for a
while, and then, slipping from behind a
tree, tiptoed toward the animals, hold
ing tbe camera In such n position tbat
he could press the button when tho
bears saw blm approaching. When
within twenty feet of the animals they
scented bm and turned In bis direc
tion. The New Jersey man forgot what ho
was there for. He dropped the camera
and lit out for camp. When he return
ed be was accompanied by all the
guides and their rifles. Tbo bears were
gone, but the camera was tying on tho
ground, not where be left It, but a
dozen feet or more away.
The machine showed plainly tbo
marks of the claws of tho bear, and
that an exposure hnd been made. It
was generally thought that the drop
ping or the camera had done tho trick,
but tho lllm, when developed by Mr.
Lewis a few days ago, showed a wood
scene that could have been taken ouly
from quite an elevation.
