LtT ME BEGIN ANEW. "
Lord God, Thou letteet the green thlncs
A new life every year;
Out of their sunktn selves they rtas,
Erect and sweet and clear;
Behold the lily's pure white leaves
- I'nfoldtne; by each mere.
Again the aap mounts In the fir
Through every swelling vein;
Again the clover it In and thrill.
Hesponslv to the rain;
Again the tender grafts makes graea
The Ions breast of the plain.
Hear the new, the golden flood of song,
The lark pours forth to the blual
Behold the strong, undaunted shoot
Pushing Its brava front through
The fallen tree. Lord (too, Lord Ood.
Let me begin anew!
Out of my own self let mi rlsa,
For, Ood. If It can ba
A new and r.oble growth may spring
From yon decaying tree
Surely a strong, pure life may mount
Out of this life of me.

TNBIDE Manuel's contlna the Airier-
lean music box wan playing, thai
was nothing unusual, lor, from morn'
Ing to night, the music box was going.
At a table drawn close to the one on
which the box stood aat old roan
Chamberlain. . His ryes were closed
and he wan seemingly half-asleep. Hut
with an almost automatic action he
now and then lifted a glass to his lipe
and sipped the fiery mcscul which It
contained. And that was nothing tin
usual, for, from morning to night for
many a year, old man Chamberlain sat
beside the box nnd the bottle In the
dark Mexican saloon.
ltetween the box and the man were
two points of resenihlance. Kach had
come from the United States and each
was wearing its life out In Manuel's
cantina. There the resemblance end
ed. Of the two the music box waa a
more respectable member of society.
"The Drunken (iringo" the palsnnos
called him. It was a double contempt
because he wns a foreigner and a sot.
And yet, once each monlh, llicy wel
comed him as one of themselves. For,
then, there came to the old man a
oheck from a fur-off city In gringo
land, and that strange check, convert
ed into cash, speedily found Its way
over Manuel's bar. On the day that
It came there was free mescal for all
who cared, and they were few who
would not leave the tiresome scratch
ing of the soil for a time of Intoxicated
hilarity. Then "The Drunken Orlngo"
became "El ficnor," and his tottering
atepa were steadied by willing hands.
It was not a big check only for ISO
United Statescurrenry. Hut that make
almost a roomful of Mexican pesos, and,
besides, so fur as results went, It was
worthy the respect It received. For, In
one way or another. It was one of the
supports of the village. On it old man
Chamberlain lived entirely. To blm
it was board, lodging, clothing, and
what was more drunken forget ful
nesa. To Manuel two-thirds of it
found its way to his pocket, it was
prosperity in husineas. What alfted
by him directly or indirectly support
ed half the village. Ho It was that for
one day'in the month the old town had
a fiesta when Bacchus was king and
the Drunken flringo his premier.
Old man Champerlaln had not al
ways been the "Drunken flringo."
Once it wan before his music box waa
invented he had been young and the
future had seemed fair. He hsd hnd vi
sions of a prosperous and honored life,
Then had come hin durk days, nnd Mcx
Icowashis refuge, as it la that of ninny
another American. Once across the
border he had been seized with a long
ing for bin native land. The scenes
which bad been so prosaic and com.
mon in the days he lived among them
were transformed Into dreams of par
adise. To see them again In reality
was forbidden by the laws he had
broken. To dream of them over a mes
cal bottle wan a resource left him,
and In this he found his solace, Little
by little the reality of the past was
forgotten; little by little he became
the "Drunken (Irinjro," and all that
was left wns the music box, the mea
eal bottle and the monthly check.
The Inst fiesta of the check hnd been
unusually exciting. It was the holi
day time, and the spirit of the season
had covered the disgrace of the grin
go eo that the check was larger than
ordinary, and brought with It a mcs
aago of Christmas greeting. For a
time the old man had shaken off his
stupor. Hut now the music box was
grinding away as usual, the mescal
In the bottle hnd been reduced by half,
and Manuel was doting ou the bench
outside the door.
Then came a crash. The music box
went tumbling to the floor. Through
the open doorway came flying the
metal disc in which were punched the
Botes of "Home, Rweet Home," and on
which the box had been at work.
"Ma.niel! Mnnucl! Come here, Man
Ball I tell you I will go. No one shnll
atop me. I will go. I say, Manuel "
Old man Chamberlain was atandlng
in the doorway grasping the wall to
aupport his trembling legs and shout
Roused from his nap by the unwont
ed disturbance and the erica of his
usually speechless patron, Manuel
alood half-frightened before him.
"What is It, scnor?" he giuped.
"I tell you 1 wilt g," repented old
snaa Chamberlain. - ,i,'t care for
the law. 1 diui't care if they do get
ae. I'm going home again."'
"Hut, scnor," protested Mnnucl, as
the old man's Idea became apparent
to him, "If ymi cross the river I hey
will gel ymi. You have said so many
a time. And you have said, too, that
It la belter to live here than die in

"I don't care, I tell you; I don't
care," mumbled the old man. "I'm go
ing back. It was playing 'Home, Sweet
Home,' and I can't aland it any longer.
You don't know what n home Is down
here. None of your people do. How
can you, living as you do? liut I know.
I hnd a home once, and I'm going back
The strength which bad come with
his excitement left the old man and
he sank down on the bench. Manuel,
thinking to quiet him, brought him the
mescal bottle. Cbnmberlnln drank,
but rlung to the Idea fixed in his mind.
To Mnnucl such a thing was worse
than folly. It was sheer madness, for
the old man had told him ninny a time
of the trouble which hnd mnde him
flee the states and which had made
the Itlo Grande the houndury of a for
bidden land. The thought of what he
might lose financially did not enter his
head. With long years of association
he had come to like the old mas, and
"Drunken (iringo" though he was he
wanted to save him from harm. This
Idea was strong in him, and he hur-
rled for two or three men who, he
thought, might have Influence with
Chamberlain. They came and they
argued their best, but the old man waa
"I tell you I'm going back," be in
slstedi "I'm going back, even If they
do get me."
"He'll have changed his mind by to
morrow," said the jefe politico, "They
say the prisons In his land are worse
than those we have, and"
A significant shake of the head
showed what the Jefe thought.
Hut on the morrow old man Cham
berlaln was as Arm as ever. The music
box was picked up and repaired, and
the mescal bottle was refilled. Manuel
and his friends argued. All in vain.
Finally they held a consultation. It
waa In one end of the cantina. In the
other old man Chamberlain waa lis
tening to the music box and fitting to
Its airs the wordst "I'm going back,
I'm going back, I'm going back again."
When the consultation was ended,
Manuel came to him.
"I'm going back, I tell you," said the
old man, bla voice keeping time to the
"ril. si. You shall go bark." answered
Manuel. "Hut I will go back with you.
Then, perhaps, they won't get you."
"I'm going back, I'm going back,
I'm going back again," persisted old
mil Chamberlain,' aa the musio box
continued to shakingly grind out Ita
' That night there waa a long talk,
and the mescal bottle was emptied
and reenrptled. Manuel talked and
the jefe politico talked and old man
Chamberlain crooned his one refrain.
Hut he listened to the arguments. He
had no money, and Manuel could not
pay the expenses to New York. That
did not matter to the old man. New
York was a dream so far in the past
that It had ceased to be real. Hut the
United States still existed for him, and
If he could step foot In them once
more he would be content. Bo it waa
The next night aa the Mexican Cen
tral train drew Into Cludad Juarea two
men got off. One was Manuel; the
other was the "Drunken Orlngo." It
was still light, and slowly, by bark
streets, they made their way to a sa
loon. There a bottle of mescal waa
secured. When it was empty Manuel
went to the door and looked out.
"Come," he said, "it is time."
Old man Chamberlain totterlngly
rose from his chair. He drew him
self aa erect as he rould, and walked
to the street. In his hand he held the
empty mescal bottle, which he had
been grasping as It stood on the table.
Slowly Mnnuel led the way to the
stretch of dry sand which, for geo
graphical purposes, la called a river.
'Are you sure? fa this tha way?"
asked the old man, as thsy stumbled
'Si, al. I am sure. I know tha
way," replied Manuel.
(Iradually they went down a sandy
Incline. Then they crossed a small
plain cut up by minute arroyos. Then
there was a sharp ascent.
'Here, here," whispered Manual, in
a frightened voice that showed he was
trembling as though he waa the on
who atood in fear of tha law.
Are you sure?" again protested the
old man. "Are yon sure? Is this really
the l ulled States?"
'Yes, yes. Look," answered Manuel.
as he pointed to one side where could
be seen the lights of th river guard
on duty at the frontier customhouse.
The old man looked. From behind
came the rumble of the street cars as
they crossed the bridge. Straight
ahead, the first one hardly 90 feet
away, were th lights of Kl Paso.
"I believe you. It ia It Is home,"
said the old man In a strange voice.
Then he sank on th sand, his far
hidden from sight.
For a time Manuel left him. There
wns no danger, probably, but to the
friendly Mexirnn every sound, every
m.ocment of the bushes ahead was a
warning that they should go. At last
lie touched th old man on th shoul
"Yes, yes, I'll go. Only glv ms an

The music box is still playing in
Manuel's cantina. The disc of "Home,

The Japanese peasants, when they
get themselves up for the business of
a pilgrimn-.-e, are the quaintest fig
ures imiig.i able, says tiood Words.
The women generally tuck up their
petticoiitx well ubove their knees,
either leaving the legs bare, or else
swathing them with white bandages,
which form a Kind of legglns. Their
hair Is done tn the usual eloborate
Japanese stylt, and generally an arti
ficial flower is stuck in at tne top. It
rtoea look so comic to see the wid
ened face of an old woman with a
large red rose bobbing over it. And
this floral decoration ia not confined
to the women; when you meet a par
ty of pilgrims you often see the old
men also with a flower stuck eoquet
tishly above the ear. 1 found out
the reason of this rather inappro
priate ornamentation when I was nt
Nagano. It appears that many of the
poor old dears from the country get
so bewildered by the magnificence of
the places they go to, and the dis
tractions of shopping, that they
quite lose their heads, and conse
quently their way. So the ever
thousrhtful Japanese police have in
sisted that every party of pilgrims
is to have a distinguishing hedge. At
Nagano it was the commonest thing
possible to see some snnoient dame
rushing about wiJling: "Where is my
party? Where is the purple iris par
ty?" or "Where is the yelllow-towel-round-the-neck
party?" And then she
would be told that tbe "yellow-towel-rouiid-the-neck
party" was on its way
to the station, or that the "purple
irises" were still saying their prayers
iu the temple.
A BATTLE OF THE BEES.
Sabjaota Wera Foreel lata
One oolony of wild honey bees, less
than a mile away, had survived the
famine of the previous summer, and
in July, made desperate by lack of
forage, certain of their wanderers dis
covered r. y hive, and . succeeded in
sneaking by the sentries and getting
away with honey-bags rilled with
plunder undetected, writes Willium
Kverett Cram, of "My First Colony
of liees," in Ladies' Home Journal.
Returning later with others of their
tribe they were discovered and driven
off. Hut the whole colony of foreet
dwellers was now eager for booty and
came In overpowering force. I nar
rowed the entrance to the hive, and
my bees defended It valiantly; the
flghtimr was flen-e until long after
dark, and in the tuoit.ing it was again
renewed, and Hnnlly tre defend.ii. is
were defeated with heavy losses. The
survivors were compelled to go into
bondage and assist their victors to
carry nwny the captured honey to the
woods, and before the midKUiuin-T
sun was half way up the sky the hive
stood silent and deserted, save for
a few loitering pilferers crawling
about the torn and empty combs,
searching among the dead for a last
drop of honey. The queen, I presume,
nuKt have been killed, for she cer
tainly would never have consented to
accompany the enemy with the other
prisoners. Yet I was unable to find
her among the dead, and believe she
died fighting in th open and dropped
into the grass.
