THE POET AND THE BABY. V
dlow's a man to write n sonnet, con you
How's he going to weave the dim poetic
, "When n-toddllng on the floor
t Is the muse ho must adore,
And this muso he loves, not wisely, but
' too well,
2Now to write n sonnet, overyono allows,
Ono must always bo as quiet as a mouse,
But to write one seems to me
Quite superfluous to be,
lWhcn you've got a little sonnet in the
i house. '
STost a dainty little poem, true and fine,
SChat Is full of love and life In every line,
Earnest, delicate and sweet,
Altogether so complete
That I wonder what's the use of writing

A MOUNTAIN GIRL.
IS morning. Tho rlslntr mm
ust tops thef crest of that por-
tlon of tho Appalachian chain
of mountains between tho northern and
southern boundaries of tho Stato of
;Kentucky, tinging its peaks nnd crags
twIUi a grayish vagueness. From every
ravine and gorge-huge clouds of smoke
jUke mist arise, assuming wondrously
iodd and fantastic forms In the uncer
itain light. The stillness engendered by
tho natural environments nnd the time
iof day is unbroken save now nnd then
liy the far-off bay of a foxhound float
ing faintly from somo mountaineer's
cabin, or the whistle of a dove's wings
Ins It flies swiftly by to the sedge fields.
The sun climbs higher, and conscious
of Its might, drives back to earth the
quenching mists. Tho rear guard
shadows of the night are mysteriously
disappearing The smoke of numerous
cabin chimneys can now be distln
sulshcd rising in curling columns of
iblue. Along the rutty clay road, or
xather mountain path, and hugging the
rwormeaten rail fence for safety s. red
Xox slinks under cover of the alder
Blushes, his whiskers nnd brush brist
ling with pendant drops of early morn
ing dew. A mother quail and her
brood, that have been pluming their
feathers on a topmost rail, with an
affrighted whirr fly to cover,
t Presently a soldier in his uniform
comes galloping furiously down the
road; he passes at full speed; the sound
of his steed's hoof beats grow fainter,
and silence for a few minutes again
reigns, only to be broken by a dozen or
more men in uniforms of the -other side,
jwho break coyer nnd also come down
the road like niad; their horses reeking
jwlth swtat and blood. The first man,
farther down where the road forks, has
'Turned to the right; these others take
the left-hand branch. In a few mo
ments shots are heard, and presently
a horse, the one ridden by the first
anan, comes galloping back to be met
and caught by a slim, dark-eyed moun
tain girl, who comes suddenly out of
rthe bushes from somewhere. She
ietands there holding the bridle reins In
ier right hand; the left is pressed hard
against her heart as if to ward off an
unseen blow. Her eyes stony in their
Intensity, look off far up the valley to
a break in tho mountains, where God's
good morning displays its brightest
xays. Her gaze Anally turns slowly to
the pursuers, who at sound of the shots
(have ridden back to the forks, and
catching sight of the girl and the horse
comes excitedly up the road toward
r '"Bob Jordan's darter," says one of
"Jes es I thought," laconically replies
le, who appears to be in command.
""The pesky critter 's got warnln' frum
aum'ers, or he'd bin'r gone fawn skin
afore now. Whut air you adoln' heah
at this time o' day?" he demands of her.
JFor the first time the girl seems to take
lull notice of their presence.
"Did ye heah whut I sed?" he de
mands more commnndlngly.
"I'd like to know whut consarn that
is uv your'n?" she replies, turning to
"Ain't er body got a good right ter go
whar they please 'thout beln' stopped
Jn ther road and pestered ter death
'bout bit by er lot ov big, cowardly
men? 'Ef you air crbllged ter know
;tho, I'm er going down to Bob Black
moro's to hep his mother. She air sick
in bed, an' hepless."
"Did ye mean ter ride Bob's hoss
down thar? I 'low ef my eyesight
ain't er fallin' me, that that air Is his
critter. Whar's Bob now?" ho con
itinued coaxlngly. '
"I don't know nuthln' 'bout him. Ef
you'uns want ter find him, you'd bet
ter look fer him."
"Whar'd you git his critter, then?"
breaks In ono impatiently.
"I stopped him in ther road, right
heah, es I come from down ther path
thar. The critter wuz comln lopin'
up, when I run out an' headed him off."
After parleying a few moments, tho
spokesman again turns to her.
"Wo'uns think thet more'n likely yo
iwuz tellln' ther truth Jest now," ho
ventures. "Spechully es yo air a mem
lier uv ther church, nnd your daddy
iwuz, too, an' er elder besides. Sissy,"
fro Insinuates, "nobody ever heerd tell
uv your tellln' no lio afore. Which way
did yo say ther critter wuz kummln'
frum?" She looks him steadily in tho
"That way," she says, indicating with
a. wavo of her band tho opposite direc
tion. "Ther Lord ferglvo mo," she
mentally pleaded, "for tellln' ur He fer
"Thet won't do, Sissy. Wo'uns Jes
kuin thet air way ourselves, right After
11m. We'uns had better look fer him
right er-round heah, I reckln, I bear

whar thnr's enny pottlconts cr-round
Bob Blackmoro ain't fur er-Wny."
"You better look out fer yersolf," sho
scornfully replies. "Hc'un Is mighty
handy with his wccplus, and with his
fists, too. I reckln you know tliot, too,
don't you, Jim Wootcu? I hnv heerd
tell thet you an' him had er fight ter
wuncc, an' Bob didn't kuin out no little
end uv ther horn, neither."
"We'uns will fix all thet tlmr ef wo
ever git our ban's on ther ou'ry, good-fer-nuthln'
scoundrel ergln. He'uus
ain't llttcn ter live noways."
"Ho's or sight mo' fltteu than you

bin, or hard-worklu, sober man, an'
taken keer uv his mammy; sumpln you
never done. 'Sides thet, he's er gentle
man, an' alius minded his own busi

demands with rising vehemence "Too

An' soon's somebody that's Bob

heahs his niaw's sick, an' slips off ter
kura an' see her, tor noun' him like er
dog an' try ter kill him. Hit's Jes cause
he's botter'n you nlr."
Tho faint winding of a horn down the
road arrests their attention, and hur
riedly mounting their horses they rldo
off, one calling back to her:
"We've got him, Sissy. Thet's Tom
Winburn. I tole him ter kum up ther
road, bo's to head him off an meet
The pursuers proceeded down tho
right-hand road beyond the forks, from
whence the shots seemed to have come,
where the road makes a sudden dip into
a dry ravine. Down there a man lies
still In death, his cheek pressed heavily
against the delicate ferns that grow
luxuriantly out of the cool shadows.
The trees meeting overhead almost ex
clude the light, but now and then a
recreant bough, straying from its place
through bidding of the gentle morning
breeze, lets In a feeble ray of sunshine
that touches up tho dead man's face
with a pallid coloring. Tho nodding
ferns caress his pale cheek in ynin.
The morning songsters sing their lays
to unhearlng ears. The pines nnd hem
locks mingling their foliage with the
poplars, and bowing their good morn
ings to the beeches and young hick
ories, sough in vain to arouse or soothe
the sleeper. He will never again take
cognizance of earthly things, nor inhale
the beauty and vitality of bis native
mountains his spirit has gone before
the last tribunal. A round hole In the
center of his forehead shows where
the messenger of death has entered,
bringing its Inevitable summons. His
slouch hat lies where It has fallen a few
feet away, his right hand still clutches
a pistol, his finger within the guard and
grasping tho trigger. His gnrb is the
same as they wear who find him.
He had sought unfairly to take hu
man life, and with his own had paid
the penalty. Coming from farther
down the mountain to meet his com
rades and seeing the fugitive he had
ridden aside into the ravine, intending
to slay him unawares as he passed.
But he had seen the Interceptor, and
was prepared, and as' the other fired at
him going by he too had fired in return,
and slew him. It was but a moment's
work to exchange his steed for the
fresher one of the dead man and ride
furiously forward again. The horse
deserted, frightened at the realization
of something wrong and scared at sight
of the dead man, gallops back to be
met and caught by the girl.
But now, heartbroken, overwhelmed
and frightened at sight of the inani
mate body they shortly bring up the
road toward her she flees stricken nnd
crushed, thinking It to be the other
one. And thus It Is for days nnd long
Weary days, until by chance she learns
The war's over. Another bright
morning. A man rides leisurely up the
road; where It forks he catches sight
of a woman's form sitting on a fallen
tree, where Bhe has evidently stopped
"Mawnln', Miss Sissy," ho says. At
tho sound of her name the girl looks
up quickly, and then as quickly down
again, a flush surmounting her usually
"Mawnln', Bob," she quietly re
sponds. "We 'lowed up ter our house
es how maybe you'uns had forgot us.
How's your maw?" quickly changing
"Hit did look bad in my not erkura
min' ter see you nil afore now," he re
joins, ignoring the last question. "But
I had ter kinder straighten up around
home a bit afore I got out much."
"I thaut you wuz killed wunce, Bob,"
she ventures by way of further con
versation. Instantly ho dismounts,
leaving his horse standing In tho road,
nnd goes up and sits down beside her.
"Why did you'uns think that?" he-
"I wuz ergoln' down ter your maw's
an' stopped your critter in tho road up
thar that time, an then they brought
ho'un that wuz killed, an' an' " she
could go no further at recollection of
"An' did you keer, Sissy?" he asks,
leaning eagerly forward.
"You wnrn't dead," sho protests.
"Well, then uv ther fac' that you
thaut I wuz dead?"
She answers him nothing. A few dry
leaves flutter in the autumn air nnd
fall at their feet A wild grape vino
nods Its approval nnd swings In tho
breeze, and tho branches of tho trees
overhead rustle with tho gambols of a
young fox squirrel. A flame-crested
woodpecker flics to a dead pine and be
gins plugging unraolestedly away. He
puts his arm around her and draws her
"Who writ that thar note, then, Sissy,
that wuz shoved under ther door that
night ter warn me? You will tell mo
that, won't yo? An' who tuck keer of
my mammy when sho wuz sick? Sissy,
honey" tho arm draws tighter "won't

ugnlnst his breast
'You air shore good at nxln ques

Care May Prevent TrnnmilMlou from

The question of heredity, or tho trans
mission of certain mental traits or
physical characteristics from parents
to children. Is one thnt has been nnicn
studied, but of which ns yet too little
Is known. Formerly tho Inheritance of
disease was belluved In implicitly, by
physicians as well as by laymen, nnd
the list of maladies to which children
were supposed to be almost Inevitably
condemned by the accident of birth
was a very long ono.
Among theso hereditary diseases
wero reckoned consumption and scrof-
uln, leprosy, gout, rheumatism, goitre,
cancer, insanity, epilepsy nnd many
other nervous affections. As wo learn
nioro about those mnhulles, however,
ope after another of them is removed
wholly or In part from this category
nnd placed among tho acquired dis
eases. Undoubtedly somo diseases are really
inherited, but their number Is certainly
not large. Many diseases run In fam
ilies, but are not on that account neces
Consumption, for cxnmple, was only
recently regarded ns one of tho most
surely Inherited diseases, and is still
believed by ninny to bo so. But wo
now know thnt it is n germ disease,
which, whllo not "catching" in the or
dinary sense of the word, is readily
transmitted from tho sick to tho well
when the Invalid is careless in his hab

It Is also acquired moro readily by
those of delicate constitution than by
The children of consumptive pnrcnts
nrc seldom robust, and so are predis
posed to any of the germ diseases, and
living constantly In a house where tho
germs of consumption arc necessarily
abundant, they nro very likely to be
come victims of that disease.
This is an important fact It teaches
us that since, as a rule, only the pre
disposition to the family disease Is in
herited, and not the disease Itself, the
chances of the younger generation's
escaping, If proper care is used, are
The bringing up of a child In a con
