This Is
Tale of
a Simple
a Windmill.
The Btory of Charles and Claire Is a
very simple one. They lived honestly
and loved each other with all their
hearts. He was 35 years of age; she
was 30. They lived in Paris and had
no children.
Clalra wa3 employed In the Bank of
France and Charles worked in the Cre-'
lit Foncler. Their combined salaries
amounted to 400 francs a month and
made possible certain luxuries Thea
ter des Batignolles, excursions to Saint
Ouen, fried fish suppers at Autell.
Sometimes they went for picnics into
the Department Seine-et-Oise.
One day they climbed up the heights
of MontmarUe, and from the summit
they eaugrht a1xhNf the peaks of Chau
mont. Then they went into ecstacles
over the beauties of nature.
"The real mountains must be won
derful," declared the husband.
Said Ms wife: "What if one day we
were to go and see the Pyrenees? Your
family came from there, you know, and
you have an aunt at Pau."
Charles soon remembered his aunt
there even recalled her name, Adele
Beyriee. He wrote to her to say they
would go to spend a week at Pau dur
ing their next vacation. They at once
began to make preparations for the
trip. In order to live well in the Pyre
nees they deprived themselves of many
things in Paris.
At length the month of August came
round. Charles and Claire had their
vacation at the same time, and they
left Paris on a Sunday night.
They arrived in Pau twenty-four
hours later, and found the aunt without
dlflloulty. She was selling bonbons and
photographs of Henry IV. before the
gateway of the castle. She gave her
nephew the name of a good hotel.
It was raining when they arrived,
and the mountains were not visible.
The next day the sky was still overcast,
and the great mountains were shroud
ed In heavy mists.
"Never mind," said Charles, "let us
go for a walk; the mists are sure to rise
before long."
Unfortunately, Instead of going In a
southerly direction, where the Pyrenees
were, they turned their faces toward
the novttv, where lay the Hat lands of
Point Long. They walked for two
hours with confidence. Suddenly, on
their left, the land began to rise in low
"There they are!" cried Charles, and
his awe-struck eyes bean to search
for a sign of the everlasting snows.
"You think those are the real Pyre
nees?" said Claire, doubtfully.
"Why, of course," was his confident
They attacked the hills bravely and
the sky began to grow clear, the clouds
to break up. Patches of deep blue be
ga,i to show themselves through the
mist masses. Presently the sun its.'U'
shone out, and before his fierce arrows
the vapors rolled to one side and fled
like an army of ghosts and specters In
The two Parisians continued to climb.
Suddenly they saw before them a wind
mill; an old windmill whose arms were
slowly turning in the wind on the sum
mit of the hill. Charles was somewhat
Do they have windmills on the high
est peaks of the chain? he thought.
Perhaps the people have danced there
as they did at Montmartre.
"Peuh! The Pyrenees don't amount
to much, you know," said Claire, with
a shrug of her shapely shoulders.
Still they kept on climbing, and In a
quarter of an hour found themselves at
the foot of the mill. There was not a
(loud in the sky. Claire turned round
iuddenly and uttered a loud cry.
"Oh, Charles, look over there'."
Charles turned at his wife'3 wo
nd stood In amazement. The real
Pyrenees rose up in the distance with
uch Indescribable grandeur that
Dharles and Claire were overcome with
They stretched away In long blue
ranges, rising higher and higher Into
the sky, ever more and more Indistinct
ind blue. And over all were the great
lopes of everlasting snow standing out
white and grand against the deep blue
ikies. Claire and Charles had never
een such a sight before, and their eyes
Jlled with tears of enthusiasm.
They waited there several hours and
the next day they came again. And the
Jay after they came again. How thej'
longed to see those mountains close!
But they were not rich enough. Per
liaps next year. This time they
must be content with looking at them
Trom a distance. They bought plans,
photographs and a guldo book and
looked up the names of the peaks with
ragerness that was almost passionate.
CharlesandClalre enjoyed themselves
more and more as the time passed, and
when the day came for them to leave
they were almost In tears. Oh, the
lovely country they were Kolng to leav?!
Why were they not born there? Oh,
to live In the open air, away from the
madding crowd, face to face with the
big mountains, and never to hear the
itreet venders crying their ware!
Charles especially was sad.
He was a child of the Pyrenees, be
cause his parents had lived there and
lied there. It seemed bb if their dust
was calling to him, the exile In a great
jity, to return to his true horn And
live again in the pure air of the moun
tains and forests.
The last day, when he was making
his adieu to the mountains, Charles saw
the miller come out of the old windmill
Mid an extravagant idea came into his
"Good morning, old fellow," he said
to him.
"Good morning, sir."
"To whom does this mill belong?"
"To me."
"Do you have any land round It?"
"Eight hectares."
"Are you willing to sell?"
"Well, that depends," replied the mil
ter, eyeing his Interlocutor from head to
"How much do you want?"
"How much do I want? Oht 1G.000
"Oh I Tou'would let It go for 10,000?"
"Ah, non monsieur, non. - By my soul,
Do, I could not go lower than 1,2,000."
And the miller went Into his mill
igaln to prove that he would go no
But seeing that the strangers wero
going away, he ran after them, caught
Up with them and said: ,
"You might leave your address,
though. Sometimes, you know, one has
need of money and even for 10,000
franca, perhaps! Well, 10,000 francs are
always 10,000 francs."
Charles gave his address and walked
away with his wife In a state of high
"But you must be crazy," declared
But There Is a Tear
For Every Smile in Its Narration.
"You think of buying that mill?
"Yes, mo; that Is, I "
"And the money?"
"We shall have it. You'll see. We'll
work day and night and economize. In
four years we will have our mill; In four
years, perhaps three. And when once
we have got It we will retire and be
come millers. Then we shall be able to
see the mountains every day and enjoy
them! Oh! how happy we shall be!
Kiss me. kiss me, Mrs. Miller!"
And Charles embraced his pretty
young wife as if he was holding the n
tlre range of the Pyrenees to his breast.
They went back to Paris nnd worked
with enthusiasm. In order to realize
their dream they economized In every
direction, lodgings, clothes and even
food. Claire succeeded In obtaining
copying work and Charles kept books
for a small storekeeper.- In this way
they were able to set aside 200 francs a
At the end of the first year Charles
showed his wife a roll of bills.
"There Is one of the arms of our wind
mill," he said, and together they sang
the well known air, "The Pyrenees
So they worked on and In the even
ings, when the pen fell from their tired
fingers, they looked at the photographs
of the Pyrenees.
Another year passed and Charles
again showed his wife a large roll of
bank notes.
"Here is another arm of our wind
mill," he said, kissing his wife and call
ing her "Madame la meunlere" Mrs.
They had both grown a little thinner.
He was even a trifle bent and she had
a cough. But still they worked on, their
eyes dazzled by the dream of the future.
As the end drew nearer their impa
tience and earnestness increased. The
tenderness they would have lavished on
a child was directed toward the prom
ised land for their old age. All their
dreams and thoughts were of the
mountains those distant, blue mount
ains with their majestic peaks and
white eternal snows.
When the third arm of the windmill
was gained Claiire fell 111, and the doc
tor forbade her to return to the bank.
Charles found out that vhe had con
sumption. Then he wavered.
"Wretch!,, he said to himself; "It is I
who am the cause, of all this. I nl
lowed you to work too hard, and I have
not glvfn you proper food. God Is
punishing me!"
He felt he was going mad. She was
then going to die! She whom he called
"Madame la meunlere" My 'Lady Mil
ler! To die even before she got her
mill! Oh, it was too bitter!
"Don't fear anything," he said to his
wife; "you will nut have your mill, but
you will live."
Charles sent her to Pau, Where she
passed the whole winter. She refused
to go a.t first, and unwilling to give up
their dream nnd spend on a doctor the
money they 'hud so painfully saved.
She said she could get Well in Paris,
in ppite of the cold and the fog. She
said this in a. feeble voice, holding her
husband's 'head in her hands and shut
ting her eyes tightly to prevent the
tears coming out.
But Charles waa firm. He went on
with her to Pau, and together they went
up to see the old mill.
Claire spent the winter with Adele
Beyrles, her husband's old aunt. He
received two loiters a 'week from her,
and Claire assured him she was getting
lie sent her 300 francs a month for the
doctor's bill and her living expenses,
while she wrote loving letters, saying
she did not need so mudh money and
urging him to put it away In the Hav
ings bank.
But Charles urged her to take good
care of herself, and continued to send
Uho money. Onl? after another the
arms of the old windmill disappeared.
And he had nearly had them all In his
grasp! If his wife had not fallen ill
they might have owned the whole mill
by this time.
But What good was there of thinking
of such things it all?
In the month of May ihe received a
telegram from Claire.
"Come nt once. Bring all the money."
Charles turned pale. He left on the
same day. His wife mot him at Pau.
How thin ybe was, how white, how hol
low 'her cheeks! He wept. as he kissed
"Oh, Claire, you did not tell mo the
trutih When you said you were growing
"Yes," vfoe said, "I told you the trutih;

Now and then the reputable newspa
per worker encounters persons who have
such radically wrong conceptions of the
purpose and function of the dally press,
and who are led by these misconceptions
into such entirely Incorrect conclusions,
that It becomes almost necessary to try
to rectify these errors. Perhaps tho most
annoying single delusion prevalent In this
community Is ono which airily assumes
that the newspaper is primarily a phil
anthropic .enterprise, conducted for the
general good, and therefore In duty bound
to give valuable space upon every occa
sion to any enterprise which masks Itself
behind the guise of charity. The ninety
and nine times In which newspapers re
spond to these demands are paused over
with scant if any gratitude; but woe be
tide the luckless publisher who once fal
ters or forgets this kind of sight draft
upon his generosity.
Most publishers, I nm glad to say, do not
begrudge any reasonable contribution of
space or energy to a worthy cause, albeit
that space means money to him Just as
certainly as, and In precisely the sums
manner that, shoes mean money to the
shoe dealer or hats to tha .hatter, or bread
to the baker. Hut, operating a business
Just as the merchant or the banker or the
broker operates one, he naturally feels
If he Is not, In the course of his business,
toughened against feeling of any kind he
nevertheless feels, I say, that he ought to
get the same credit for a donation to
charity that Is freely accorded to the shoe
dealer who gives shoes or the baker who
gives bread. He does not like, any more
than the shoo dealer or the baker likes, to
have people come to him, and say: "You
have got to give i" so much of your prop
erty," which, in his case, Is space, adver
tising, publicity, for that is nothing short
of robbery, but if people will come to him
courteously and throw themselves on hi
generosity not forgetting, when obliged,
to evince a fair measure of common grat

know yet what I have to tell you.- It
belongs to us now; it Is ours."
"What is ours?" he asked in amaze
ment. ,
"The mill." .

"Yes, eee, here are the bank notes you
sent me! Two 'thousand eeven hundred
francs! And here Is some more I earned
myself, putting 450 francs out of anoth

"You know," she explained, "I did not
stay in f he hotel because I felt Just as ill
there as I did In Purls, So I got work as
a governess In an English family. Not
only have I not spent our three arms of
tfhe mill, but I Slave saved a large por

And Claire fainted away.
"Poor girl, you have killed yourself,"
said Charles, taking her in his arms to
a carriage. They went to a druggist and
Claire came back to consciousness. She
was able with great difficulty to stand
Thus far she had deceived herself, but
now that her dream was about to be
realized, and she was with her husband
again, tilie knew and recognized the
gravity of flier position. She knew 'that
She was going to die.
They carried her into a hotel and put
her to bed, and sent for a doctor. All
they could do for her, however, was use
less. She grew dally weaker and weaker.
One evening, feeling her life slipping
away from her, she took her husband's
face In her lhands, which were already
growing cold. ' '
"Adieu, Charles," she murmured; "do
not cry. I shall die Just the same. You
know, It is impossible to cure consump
ition. Do not cry.
"Do you see the mountains yonder?
How beautiful they are tonight. Take
me nearer to the window so that I can
sea the snow and the great precipices
and the forests and waterfalls.
"Charles," she added, in a voice that
grew feebler every second, "I must be
buried in this beautiful country'; In the
shadow of those mountains. And you
you must buy the mill" her voice al
most failed her "and live there al
ways; and In the evenings you must
gaze on the great mountains and think
think of me; won't you, Charles?"
So Claire died, and In the far distance
the lights of the sunset touched the big
shoulders of the Pyrenees and shone on
their slopes of everlasting snow. From
the French.

The business of a newspaper Is neither
more nor less than to print and sell the

It is all that the public lifts any right to
expect of It. It Is quite as much as It can

publishers may superadd certain, things

Norman Kerr, the English toxlcologlst,
is very much mistaken alcohol is
perhaps the least dangerous originator
of jags with which fallible humanity
Is beplagued. Dr. Kerr enumerates
among the things that "make drunk
come," as the Indian expresses it, ether,
cocaine, eau dc cologne, Iodine, opium,
hasheesh, paraffin, kerosene, and even
such seemingly Innocuous substances
as cod liver olf and castor oil. It would
seem almost incredible that there could
be such a thing as kerosene inebriety
or cod liver oil Intoxication, but the
records of scientific research, as set
forth by Dr. Kerr, are not to be dis
puted. The fact seems to be that over
indulgence in any one of the numerous
substances known generally as para
trlplcs, begets a cummulative appetite,
and that this is accompanied in time
by functional dorangemont, and, worse
still, by a slackening and weakening of
moral fibre. Tea, coffee, and tobacco,
while less injurious to most people than
alcohol or opium or ether, serve to 11
llustrate the familiar saying that the
appetite grows by what it feeds on.
The tobacco habit, the coffee habit, the
tea habit may grow on one until what
was once a want becomes an actual
need, and each Is as necessary to the
comfort If not to the health of the
devotee as food Itself.
Success, In treating burns, says a
writer In Youth's Companion, depends
upon the completeness with which the
Irritation Is arrested and the air ex
cluded. If caused by heat the part
should Immediately be wrapped In
some substance that will effectually ex
clude the air, which becomes a source
of irritation to the raw flesh. This may
be done very simply and easily by cot
ton wadding Boaked In carron-oil; or, if
theso articles are not at hand, the burn
may be sprinkled liberally with buklng
soda, starch or even flour, with Just
enough water added afterward to make
a thick paste. AH blisters should be
slightly pricked before the part Is
dressed. After the wound has been
smeared with some one of the above
preparations It may be lightly covered
with cotton wadding. The dressing
3hould be removed dully, and the part
carefully washed with a weak solution
of carbolic acid say from three to five
per cent. and re-dressed. Burns
caused by ncids or other Irritating sub
stances should be immediately Im
mersed In running water, that the Irri
tant may be diluted and carried off.
If tho burn Is severe or extensive there
will be symptoms of a constitutional
disturbance of proportional severity.
The first signs will be those of shock
or collupse, which should be treated
with Btlmulants and hot applications to
the heart and extremities. Within
forty-eight hours the stuge of reac

grows worse, after about a fortnight
taxed. Such men, fortunately, are scarce;
and tho Kirmess may help to explam why.
The Kirmess will net sovcrul thousands of
dollars for the Lackawanna hospital; but
there will also be a large bill of expense.
There Is no reason, In logic, why friends of
the hospital should not pay over their
money whether 82UO or only 75 cents to
the hospital directly, and thus save time
and expense In the collection of that
money. But the real fact Is that they will
not do It.' It Isn't humnn nature. Some
artifice of Indirection Is needed to woo
them round to It. They will pay to go to a
benefit show when they will not pay If
thore Is no show. . To bo Biire, It Is utterly
Illogical and ridiculous and all that. Hut,
my friend, It Is tho nature of the beast.
Direct taxation may be right In theory,
bit In practice It is out of the question.
Man must be taxed on the Bly.
There was a thought In Andrew Car
negie's recent speech to the students of
Union college which many persons habit
ually overlook. It was that the man who
Is esteemed wealthy, the millionaire,
whose fortune has been accumulated In
the course of actlvo commercial pursuits,
really gets very little personally out of
his good fortune. About all ha gets Is a
living possibly a better Jiving than you
and'I are accustomed to, but still only n
living. The rest Ib from the nature of
things hold In trust for the benefit of the
community. If this city, for example,
were suddenly to confiscate the property
and interests of the eight on ten Scranton
lans who, In common estimation rank as
millionaires although perhaps the num
ber 1b exaggerated three or four times
over could It, do you think, hire other
men to run theso various enterprises with
equal success, for less than twice what
those so-callod millionaires now extract
from their business in way of personal
pay? This was Mr. Carnegie's thought.
One doesn't have to Indorse Mr, Carnegie
unreservedly when he Indorses his
thought. To toll the truth, I fancied the
idea was a very Just one, and decidedly
opportune in this day of growing social
istic ferment and class Jealousy,
eryslpelus and blood-poisoning may re
sult. There is nothing to be done in
these last stages but to follow a phy
sician's orders. What has been said in
reference to treatment pertains only
to lighter cases; more serious burns
should bo treated by the family phy
sician. The old prejudice against the mid
night lunch is rapidly disappearing. It
held up as w warning against this mild
Indulgence horrible descriptions of
nightmare and gruesome predictions of
early death from dyspepsia. But the
superstition could not make headway
against the growing tendency of
modern persons toward nlgh carous
als, with their resultant calls upon the
appetite. "As a matter of fact," says
a physician in a recent magazine, " go
ing to bed hungry ils about the most
foolish thing that a sensible person can
be guilty of. To be sure, one should
not eat heartily of indigestible food; but
under no circumstances is the craving
for something to cat to be denied.
Delicate persons, especially those who
have little appetite, and who never eat
heartily, are frequently kept awake

Important business. It would 'be well
if every family made some provision
for this need, nnd could keep ever
ready milk, hat or cold, or a cup of
broth or hot soup. It wnuld take very
little time and expense to do this, and
the mental and physical condition
of delicate members of the household
would be greatly Improved."
It Is a wonder that the sharp-eyed
sanitary experts have not yet singled
out the trolley car strap as a means of
disease propagation. Take, for instance,
a laurel Hill car on a Saturday night
and see how many different conditions
of health and cleanliness cling to this
support, each Imparting to Its leather
sides contributions of anlmalculae and
microbes which are in turrj taken up by
the person or the clothing of the next
victim of the overcrowded car. It Is as
reasonable to suppose that this strap
helps to spread disease as It is to think
similarly of the communion cup or the
bar-room towel. If mankind Is to be
pestered to death by endless scientific
danger-signals It might as well die of
the trolley strap as of any other com
mon disseminator of fa.tal contagions.

An English physician calls attention to a
means of keeping pneumonia, colds, chills
and all ailments that cold weather brings
on at a distance. Deep and forced respir
ations, he says, will keep the entire body
in a glow in tho coldest weather, no mat
ter how thinly one may be clad. He was
himself half frozen to death one night, and
began taking deep breaths and keeping tho
air in his lungs as long as possible. Tho
result was that ho was thoroughly com
fortable in a few minutes. The deep re
spirations, he says, stimulate the blood
current by direct muscular exertion, and
cause the entire system to become per
vaded with the rapidly generated heat.
A proposition to establish a stato cre
matory for the incineration of human
bodies after death is ono of the new fa Is
that is talked of In the Minnesota legisla
ture. One of the bills before the Wisconsin
legislature requires the railways to give
24-ccnt passenger rates, and sell J.000 und

A measure has been Introduced In the
Michigan legislature which provides
terms of office of members of Iho legisla

this arrangement the legislature would

of Inexperienced members.

The fish supply In Lake Ontario is sub

Treatment of F.czcina and Salt Rheum
These two complaints are so tenacious
that the readers of The Tribune sho ild
know of the success obtained by using D;
David Kennedy's Favorite Itemed y.
Where all other treatments have failed,
It has made a comploto cure.
Perhaps no more horrible rose of Salt
Rheum was ever reported than that of
Wilbur L. Hale, iquartormaster, Pratt
Post, O. A. R., Ronrlout, N. Y. Several
physicians utterly failed to render him
any relief; finally one of the physicians
suggested that Dr. Kennedy's Favorite
Remedy be tried nnd steady Improve
ment followed Its use, and a permanent
cure resulted.
It Is used with similar success In cases
of scrofula, nervousness, kidney and liver
complaints, and In all diseases brought
about by bad, blood and shattered nerves.
