THE OLD TUNE.
I'm mighty weak at slngln' and thart's

And, If I've an tar fer inualc, It's a dsef on
I'd know "Old Hundred" from Jlf. I

Tha tunes that I could nama ain't more'n

Dut there Is one anions; 'em that'll make my
Toil start up "Yankee Doodle" and I'm
with yer every lime.
There's somethln' In Its snappy dash that
seems ter be a part
Of what there Is a-beattn' In a Tankea fel-
There's somethln' In Its life and go that
thrills yer through and through
And seems tor fit the colors of tha old
"Red, White and Dlus,"
Until yer wsnt ter tell the Bag a-wsvln'
"I've harked to 'Yankee Doodle' and I'm
with yer every time."
It's whst they played at Torktown when
Cornwallla met his check,
It's whst they suns; In triumph on tha

to the 8 a,
And runs; at Appomattox 'round tha famous
And when a soldier heard It, In tha battle's
Ills sword beat "Yankee Doodle" on the

And now they ssy they need us ones ag'ln
to take a stand
And make a llvln' breastwork 'round tha
shores of Ysnkeeland,
To drive the "children's butcher" from the
Island In the sea
And sponge the bloody blotches off tht

And, If the country wants my help to make
the Hpsnlard climb,
Jest play old "Yankee Doodle" and shs'lt

By WILLIAM BUCKLEY.
WE bad been three months mar
ried, and lived Id tht blessed ex
pectancy of a secretaryship which I
hail been promised on a commission ap
pointed to inquire into some ubuses
government did not want to And out;
but the preliminaries dragged, and I
found myself doomed to a period of en
forced Idleness which did not Improve
my temper, and I fear tried my wife's
sorely, for though happy we were hu
man. Our first and, thank Heaven, our
only tiff took place one memorable day
when we were both gardening on aplot
of soot-blackened ground attached to
our modest dwelling. In making a bor
der I had planted a number of carna
tions and picoteea together, contrary to
my wife's directions, and on discovering
the mistake she said what I suppose
nine out of ten Women would have said.
I answered tartly, being preoccupied
with bitter thought, and so acrimoni
ous did our discussion become that
Edith went Into the house.
After some minutes' reflection I felt
the childishness of my conduct, and
followed to moke it up. She was not in
the little attic-like boudoir at the top
of our mansion, so I descended to search
for her In the drawing-room, which had
tloora opening on the conservatory and
hall, lly chance I chose the first, and
had almost snterrd the room when I
heard the sound of a well-remembered
voice, and drawing the portiere aside
cautiously saw my wife face to face
"I daresay you know who I am?" the
latter was saying.
Edith denied the Implied honor.
"Then Is your state the more gra
cious," retorted Arbuscula. "Ilutyour
husband does, and that Is the chief
point. The servant told me he was at
home." She looked Just ss splendid as
ever, and swept our modest little apart
ment with a scornful glance.
"My husband is engaged," said Edith.
"A .ylhing you have to say may be said
"Indeed?" replied Arbuscula. "Well,
I have got a good many things to say."
My wife folded her hands, and, find
ing one of her gardening gloves on,
pulled it olT and threw It on the table,
"liuurd!" thought I.
"And first," continued Arbuscula, "I
want to say that your husband is the
writer of those letters." And she de
posited a formidable bundle on the
tiible, beside the glove. "They were
written to me you may read them if
"I have no desire to do so," replied
my wife, valiantly.
"They would interest you," the
other went on. "You could compare
them with those he has, I daresay, writ
ten to yourself."
"I fear you mlsundrrstand, though
the error la a natural one for you,"
replied ' " wife considerately.
A spot of light shone in Arbuncuiu's
eye. "They would be useful," she con
tinued, "if you wanted to make things
hot for him as you undoubtedly will."
My wife was silent; she plnyed with
"Or, perhaps you would care to see
them in the public press," the other
added, viciously. "1 know a literary
chap Klin would dress 'eru lip well;
they'd want a little draping, for a pa
per 1 know of."
"I conclude, then, that the lawyers
have marked 'no case? " observed
Edith, and Arbuscula glanced curiously
"I do not take my wrongs to a law
court!" she said, magnificently.
"In that you show your wisdom," re
plied my wife. Arbuscula looked at
her again, with snmethiug approach
ing respect, but there was a upatkle be
neuth the r .'IU!.
"Come, what will you give to prevent
it?" she ukril.
"Nothing," responded Edith, quietly.
"He would be of a different opinion!"
"Hardly," said my wife; "he Is not a

"All women are the same to him," con
tinued Arbuscula, recovering herself.
"What is the difference between, you
and mr? A wedding ring."

aneered Ibe other.
"O, it symbolizes more," said Edith,
but her tone was weaker; the thrust
bad gone borne, for the study of hy
drostatics had been forced upon us of
"And what is that, pray ?" demanded
"To explain would be to insult your
intelligence and yourself," replied
Edith. "Heat in carte, lunge in tierce!"

"I made allowances," rejoined my
Arbuscula'a Hps became a thin line
of scarlet. Then they parted, and she
smiled. 1 knew that she had always
possessed a most unfeminine sense of
humor, but I was not prepared for its
assertion at this supreme moment.
The two women stood looking at each
other across tha table. Arbuscula'a
dazzling smile lighting her face, my
wife's pale, yet never so beautiful I
thought, though now, enlightened by
the contrast, 1 noted lines of anxiety
which had been creeping there during
the past months, and violet shadow
under the sweet eyes. The other gath

"Possibly you came rather lute in the

"Hut came to atay!" answered my
Arbuscula laughed. Edilb put her
hand upon the bell.
"You, surely, will not compel me?"
she said. "I have been very patient."
"You'll want all the patience you have
In the good time coming," rejoined the
"And you, what will your future be
without patience?" asked Edith.
"My future can take care of itself,"
cried Arbuscula, laughing a laugh,
short aa the snap of a breaking sword
blade. "I'm a woman with a past, the
sort morality humbugs chatter nbout;
but If I had a future, like you, by C ,
I d try to get something better than the
butt end of a rouel" "Cslng the hilt."
My wife laughed gayly now. "You
know the old adage," she said, "the best
husband Is a reformed rake. Men's fol
lies often serve aa beacons to guide
them pnst the other shoals and shal
lows of life. Experience enables them
to appreciate things it is a good light

'And a useless one for a woman," an
swered Arbuscula, with a sudden
change of tone; "It's like the poop-light

She gathered the letters together:

but not so foolish as it sounus when

that an overwhelming percentage of

in the confines of the state of Con-j
necticut, and, what is more remark
able, that much of that percentage is
restricted to the city limits of 'ew
Rritain, says the Chicago Itecord-Jler-aid.

Heading the long list of successful
New Ilritain inventors is the name of
Justus A. Trout, with a record of lit
patent. Mr. Trout has made a great
fortune out of his inventions, all sp
parently insignificant trifles. It is the
manufueture of these very trifle, how
ever, which constitutes the finnnciHl
and commercial strength .f Connec
ticut. Indeed, Connecticut inventions
have been restricted almost exclusive
fy to mere trifles.
George K. Adams comes next in the
list with fi pntents. It Is scarcely pos
sible for the modern man or woman
of any station in life to attempt to
dress without recourse to some one or
other of Mr. Adams' inventions. Sus
pender buckles, hote supporters gar
ter fasteners, corset steels, hooks and
eyes, glove clasps, shirt studs, collar
buttons he has Invented galore.
Thomas K. Corscaden comes third,
with 31 devices, among them, in all
probability, the handles of the coffin
in which you will be buried, and similar
grewsome though necessary mechan
isms. Henry 0. Voight. with 44, occupies
the fourth place. Mr. Voight has de

It seems Strang that among the al
most innumerable line of inventions
of which Connecticut, and particularly
New Britain, boasts there are only a
few isolated cases of patents being

women. Sarah Jane Wheeler patent

Minier took out a patent for a fruit

Hobson patented a steam cooker in
1BUI. and Frances K. Maisonbillr
"meat tenderer" in 1B97.
All the other devices contrived by
Connecticut women have proved either
defective or absurd when attempts
were made to patent the rights to their
manufacture. Why this should be so
raises another question, quite as un
answerable as thnt asked in the begin
