' letltla, a little New England girl, lives
with er Great-aunt Peggy, her own par
ents having died, tn a house where her
grandmother and great-grandmother had
lived. Her great-aunt keeps her very busy,
and as she U Inclined to be lasy and dlso
bodlent. aha becomes restless. There Is
little green door In the cheese room
which sbe has been forbidden to open. One
Sunday she stays home from church, and
linds the key to the lirtle green door. She
opens It, and run out. Greatly to her
surprise, she finds herself In the midst of
forest. She bean Indians whooping
about Just as In the story books, and is
dreadfully frightened. A man comes along
n horseback and picks her up. They H ie
o a log house, and get safely Inside,
whera there are a woman and three little
girls. The man and his family lire guns
through the loopholes until the Indiana go
away. Letltla is asked her name, and
ays that she Is LtUla Hopkins. That
proves to be the name also of the woman
and the oldest girl, so letltla discovers
that they are the great-great-great-grandmother
and her great-great-grandmother,
and that tha man Is her great-great-great-grandfather.
Captain John Hopkins, one
of the early settlers. She Is put to bed
with her great-great-grandmother and her
great-great-aunts. In the morning she
Is told to spin at the spinning-wheel, but
ha does not know how. Ooodwlfe Hop
kins then tells her to explain the doctrine
of predestination, but she cannot do that
either, so she Is set to learn It before
breakfast, which she does, and Ooodwlfe
Hopkins Is mollified.
, , PART lit
' Letltla, having completed her task,
was given her breakfast. It was only
a portion of corn meal porridge In a
pewter plate. She had never had such
a strange breakfast In her life, and she
did not like corn meal. She sat with
It untasted before her.
"Why don't you eat?" asked her
sjreat-great-great-grandmother severe
ly. "I don't like It," faltered Letitia.
If possible, they were all more
hocked by that than they had been by
her Ignorance.
"She doesn't like the good porrldRe,"
the little great-aunts said to each oth
er. "Eat the porridge," commanded Cap
tntn John Hopkins, sternly, when he
had gotten over his surprise.
Letltla ate the porridge, every grain
of It. After breakfast the serious work
of the day began. Letltla had never
known anything like It. She felt like
a bnby who had just come Into a new
world. She was Ignorant of everything
that these strange relatives knew. It
made no difference that she knew some
things which they did not, gome ad
vanced things. She could, for Instance,
crochet, if she could not knit. She
could 'repeat the multiplication table. If did not know the doctrine of pre
destination: she had also all the states
of the union by heart. But advanced
knowledge Is of no more value in the
past than past knowledge in the future.
She could not crochet, because there
were no crochet needles; there were no
states of the union, and it seemed
doubtful if there was a multiplication
table, there was so little to multiply.
So Letltla had to set herself to ac
quiring the wisdom of her ancestors.
She learned to card, and hatchet, and
spin, and weave. She learned to dye
cloth, and make coarse garments, even
for her great-great-great-grandfather,
Capt. John Hopkins. She knitted yarn
stockings, she scoured brass and pew
ter, and, more than all, she learned all
the catechism. Letltla had never be
fore known what work was. From long
before dawn until long after dark, she
tolled: she was not allowed to spend one
Idle moment. She had no chance to
teal out and search for the little green
door, even had she not been so afraid
of wild beasts and Indians.
She never went out of the house ex
cept on the Sabbath day. Then, in fair
or foul weather, they all went to meet
ing, ten miles through the dense forest.
Capt. John Hopkins strode ahead, his
gun over his shoulder. Goodwlfe Hop
kins rode the gray horse, and the girls
rode by turns, two at a time, clinging
to the pillion at her back. Letltla was
never allowed to wear her own pretty
plaid dress, with the velvet collar, even
to meeting. "It would create a scan
dal In the sanctuary," said Goodwlfe
Hopkins. So Letltla went always in
the queer little coarse and scanty gown,
which seemed to her more like a bag
than anything else; and for outBide
wraps Bhe had. of all things, a home
spun blanket pinned over her head. Her
great-great-grandmother and her
greatc-great-aunts were all fitted out
in similar fashion. Goodwlfe Hopkins,
however had a great wadded hood and
a fine red cloak.
There was never any Are In the meet
ing house, and the services lasted all
day with a short recess at noon dur
ing which they went into a neighboring
house, sat around the fire, warmed their
half-frozen feet, and ate cold corn cakes
nd pan cakes for luncheon. There
were no pews In the meeting house,
nothing but hard benches without
backs. If Letltla fidgeted, or fell asleep,
the tithing man rapped her.
Letltla would never have been al-

lowed to stay away from meeting had
she begged to do so, but she never did.
She was afraid to stay alone in the
house because of Indians.
Quite often there was a rumor of hos
tile Indians in the neighborhood, and
twice there were attacks. Letltla
learned to load the guns and hand the
powder and bullets.
She grew more and more homesick as
the days went on. They were nil kind
to her, and she became fond of them,
especially of the great-great-grandmother
of her own age, and the little
great-aunts, but they had seldom any
girlish sports together. Goodwlfe Hop
kins kept them too busy at work. Once
In awhile, as a great treat, they were
allowed to play bean porridge hot for
fifteen minutes. They were not allowed
to talk after they went to bed and there
was also little opportunity for girlish
However there came a day at last
when Capt. Hlpklns and his wife were
called away to visit a sick neighbor,
some twelve miles distant, and the four
girls were left In charge of the house.
At seven o'clock at night the two
youngest went to bed, and Letltla and
her great-great-grandmother remained
up to wait for the return of their elders,
as they had been Instructed. Then It
was that the little great-great-grandmother
showed Letltla her treasure.
She had only one.and was often allowed
to look at It, lest it wean her nt.irt
away from more serious things. It w.-.s
kept in a secret drawer of the great
chest for safety, and was nothing but a
little sliver snuff-box with a picture on
the top. It contained a little fiat glass
bottle, about an Inch and a half long.
"The box belonged to my grand
father, and the bottle to his mother. I
have them because I am the eldest, but
1 must not set my heart on them un
duly,"sald Letitia's great-great-grandmother.
Letltla tried to count how many
greats belonged to the ancestors who
had first owned these treasures, but it
made her dizzy. She had never told the
Btory of the little green door to any of
them. She had been afraid to, know
ing how shocked they would be at her
disobedience. Now, however, when the
treasure was replaced she was moved
to confidence, and told her great-great-grandmother
the whole story.
"That Is very strange,"sald her great-great-grandmother,
when she had
finished. "We have a little green door,
too; only ours is on the outside of the
house, in the north wall. There's a
spruce tree growing up close against it,
but it is there. Our parents have for
bidden us to open it, too, but we have
never disobeyed."
She said the last word with some
thing of an air of superior virtue.
Letltla felt terribly ashamed.
"Is there any key to your little green
door?" she asked meekly.
For answer, her great-great-grnntl-mother
opened the secret drawer of the
chest again, and pulled out a key, with
a green ribbon In It, the very counter
part of the one in the satin-wood box.
Letitia looked at it wistfully.
"I should never think of disobeying
my parents, and open the little green
door,"remarked her great-great-grand
mother, as she put back the key in the
drawer. "I should think something
dreadful would happen to me. I have
heard whispered that the door opened
Into the future. It would be dreadful
to be all alone In the future without
one's klnfolks."
"There may not be any Indians or
catamounts there," ventured Letltla.
"There might be something a great
deal worse," returned her great-great-grandmother,
After that there was Hllence between
the two, and possibly a little coldness.
Letitia sat gazing forlornly Into the
fire, thinking that it would be much
more comfortable to be alive In the fu
ture than In the past, and her great-great-grandmother
sat stiffly on her op
posite stool, knitting with virtuous in
dustry, until she began to nod.
Suddenly Letitia looked up, and she
was fast asleep. Then, In a flash, she.
thought of the key and the little green.
door.'It might be her only chancer for
nobody knew how long. She pulled off
her shoes, tip-toed in her thick yarn
stocking-feet up to the loft, got her
own clothes out of the chest and put
them on Instead of her homespun garb.
The little great-aunts did not stir.
Then she tiptoed down, got the key out
of the secret drawer, gave a loving
farewell look at her great-great-grandmother,
and was out of the house.
It was broad moonlight outside.- She
ran around to the north wall of the
house, pressed In under the low
branches of the spruce tree, and there
was the little green door. Letitia gave
a sob of joy and thankfulness. She
fitted the key in the lock, turned it,
opened the door, and there she was,
back in the cheese room.
She shut the door hard, locked it and
carried the key back to its place In the
satin-wood box. Then she looked out
of the window, and there were her
Great-aunt Peggy and the old maid
servant Just coming home from church.
Letitia that afternoon confessed
what she had done to her aunt, who
listened gravely.
"You were disobedient," said she,
when Bhe had finished. "But I think
your disobedience brought its own
punishment, and I hope now you will
be more content."
"Oh, Aunt Peggy," sobbed Letltla,
"everything I've got Is so beautiful, and
I love to study and crochet and go to
"Well, It was a hard lesson to learn,
and I hoped to spare you from It, but
perhaps It was for the best," said her
Great-aunt Peggy.
"I was there a whole winter," said
Letltla, "but when I got back you were
Just coming home from church."
"It doesn't take as long to visit the
past as it did to live it," replied her
Then she sent Letltla Into her room
for the satin-wood box, and, when she
brought It, took out of it a little parcel,
neatly folded in white paper, tied with
green ribbon.
"Open It," said she.
Letltla untied the green ribbon and
unfolded the paper, and there was the
little sliver snuff-box which had been
th treasure of her great-great-grandmother,-
irtttia Hopkins. She raised
the lid. and there was also the little
glass bottle.

Here's a Doctor Who Says It Aotnally
Produces Insnnir.
From the Chicago Record.
An English medical journal some
time ago showed cause why early ris
ing Instead of being a virtue, as un
scientific moralists have taught was
really a mischievous delusion, con
demned by sound physiology, as well
as by the natural Instinct of mankind.
Dr. 8. H. Talcott, an American practi
tioner, now states that the case against
early rising goes much further. The
attention of Dr. Talcott has recently
been called to the relative frequency
with which farmers and their families
become insane. The cause of this has
hitherto been held to be the isolation of
their lives, the hard work they have to
do, and, perhaps, the excessive use of
pie and potatoes. Farmers have al
ways pure air in abundance, which city
folk seldom have; they are less liable
to mental and nervous strain than city
dwellers, and also less liable to in
fectlous diseases and the bad effects of
Dr. Talcott's view, after a careful
consideration of the advantages and
disadvantages of farming life as a pre
disposing cause of insanity, is that it
is the excessively early hours of rising
which increase Insanity in the rural
districts out of proportion to the urban
and suburban rate. He thinks growing
children In particular suffer severely
from the "artificial cut-off" which is
applied so rigidly to their lives. Lun
acy reports show that during the year
ended Sept. 30. 1894. 370 farmers, gard
eners and herdsmen were committed as
lunatics in New York state. As
against these there were only fifty-four
members of the professional classes
committed, including clergy, military
and naval officers, artists, authors, civil
engineers and surveyors. The commit
ments In the large class of waiters,
cooks, servants, miners and seamen
numbered forty-five, while the class
of male teachers, students, housekeep
ers and nurses gave only twenty-three.
Messages Carried Between Telegraph
Wires Two Allies Apart.
Telegraphy by Induction between
parallel wires about two miles apart
was successfully accomplished recently
In Scotland, If we may believe Popular
Science. The cable connecting the Isle
of Mull with Oban broke, and expert'
ments vere made before it was re
paired. The channel at this point is
from 14 to 2 miles wide, and the dis
tance between the overhead wire on the
Isle of Mull and the mainland Is almost
uniformly two miles.
A guttapercha insulated wire was
laid among the shore of the mainland
and grounded at each end. A long In
ductive circuit was then arranged, and
messages sent through either wire
could be read on the parallel wire.
During four days 110 regular mes
sages were sent, beside a press mes
sage of 120 words. The cable repairs
were tnen completed.

The permanence of republican Insti
tutions in Hawaii has been doubted by
many protuhets. who hinted that the
new commonwealth would experience
difficulty in maintaining Its Indepen
dence. Did these predlcters ever con
sider how many other republics, mucn
smaller In site and In population, sev
eral of them, too, without the advan
tage of Insular position, had stood the
test of time and preserved their auton
omy in 8!lte of the jealousies of their
powerful neighbors? The following ac
count of the little republics of the world
will show that the promoters or tne
Hawaiian commonwealth had plenty of
precedent to encourage their faith In
the future:
There Is Pitcairn Island: Itself, like
Hawaii, situated In the Pacific ocean.
Immeasurably inferior to President
Dole's district in area, population and
every other important respect which
has long remained In the peculiar posi
tion of being Independent and free from
Interference without ever having Its
national existence formally recognised.
Its first settlers, from whom the pres
ent inhabitants are exclusively de
scended, were the mutinous crew of an
English man-of-war, Hounty, famous
in story.
Lying in the southern seas, m tne
region of the Australasian continent, is
the island of Francevllle. One of the
New Hebrides, it is not far from New
Caledonia. In area eighty odd miles. It
Is mainly occupied by about 600 natives,
the white Inhabitants being less than
half a hundred. Prance, which origin
ally had control of this place1, gave It,
In 18i9. a charter of independence,
promising that no other power should
be permitted to Interfere with It. The
people elect a president, wno governs
with the aid of an advisory council of
eight members. The president, in ad
dition to his administrative functions,
exercises judicial powers, and there Is
no appeal from his decisions. Although
no office can be held by colored citizens,
universal suffrage prevails, without dis
tinction of sex or color. The chief
trade of the Island is with France, and
Is sufficiently good to afford a living for
all, pauperism being unknown, just
now the president is an American, R.
D. Polk.
To Europe, however, we must look
for the smallest of all self-governing
peoples. Some dozen miles from the
Sardinian coast to the northeast, the
long, narrow Island of Tavolara rises
from the sea. Five miles long, and
about half a mile wide, its soil Is culti
vated by the natives only to a limited
extent, fishing being the staple indus
try. Tavolara a census shows a popu
latinn of but fifty or sixty souls, a mln
iature republic, indeed. Nearly sixty
years ago the then king or Sardinia,
Charles Albert, gave the island to the
Partoleonl family, who. In the person
of King Paul I, reigned supreme as a
royal house until 1882. The ruler died
under peculiar circumstances. A suf
ferer from heart disease, he sat down
to write his will and was found dead In
his arm-chair a few hours later. The
will itself was a unique document, for
King Paul, instead of devising legacies.
had simply requested that the Island
kingdom be surrendered by the Bartol-
eoni family to the people, who were to
form a republic. Respect was shown
to the prayer of the dead monarch, and
four years after his demise, March 27,
1886. the republic of Tavolara was born.
The hardy Latin fishermen got together
and formed a constitution. Under it a
president was elected to hold office for
six years and to serve without pay.
The president was to share the cares
of office with a council of six, who, line
him, should receive no remuneration.
One year later King Humbert of Italy
officially acknowledged the lndepenii
ence of the little republic.
While Tavolara is the smallest re
publican community in the world (pos
ing as a nation) It is actually larger In
physical area than the republic of
Goust, which, however, has twice the
population of the former. Almost 250
years have seen the autonomy of uoust
undisturbed, while Invasion, conquest
and absorption of weaker countries by
the stronger have been going on all
over the world. Somewhat more than
a mile In area, located on a mountain
summit In the chain of the Lower Py
renees, the little republic dates from
1648. The Joint recognition by France
and Spain of its Independence renders
it as much a nation as Switzerland.
There is no president, but a council of
twelve administers the government by
appointing from among its own mem
bers a chief deputy with special pow
This deputy seems to be a good deal
of a Pooh-Bah in his way, for he as
sesses the taxes and collects them, pre
sides as a Judicial functionary and acts
In a variety of other capacities, Para
mount to him, however, is the Spanish
bishop of Iaruns, a neighboring pre
late, selected by the people as arbiter,
who, with the chief deputy and the
remaining eleven members of the coun
cil, form the entire list of public funo
tionaries. Probably they are enough In
a population of 130! No one Is burled
within the area of the republic, and,
as the only way. Jn -and out Is- via
the giddy mountain pass descending
to Laruns on the plains below, dead
citizens are conveyed thence for burial
by means of an artificial chute con
structed on the face of the mountain.
The ceremonies of marriage and christ
ening are also performed at Laruns
In dress and manners this interesting
little community of democrats are
much the same as they were 200 years
ago, Isolation from the rest of the
world naturally conducing to tills re
suit. They maintain themselves by
weaving a kind of cloth and by rain
Ing sheep. They speak a hybrid dialect
or French and Spanish.
San Marino Is a, remarkably pretty
Independent commonwealth. Its terri
tory, at the eastern foothills of the
Apennines, covers an area of thirty
three square miles. This Italian repub
lic naa Deen such since 1631. but has ex
Isted as a separate community since 885.

To reach the small republic of Andor
ra. Independent since 819. In the cast
of the Pyrenees, you must either come
In by water from France or by a risky
mountain trail from Bpanish territory.
The Boleia river enters It from French
soil in the department of Anege. the
pass rrom spam in the district of Cala-
dorra. The area of Andorra Is about 180
square miles, but Its population little
greater than that of San Marina About
one-third of the people occupy the chief
city, named after the republic at large.
Unlike San Marino, this capital town
Is losing its former picturesqueness
year by year, for the people are active
and In touch with the outer world.
Government is by the sovereign council
of twenty-four, elected by popular vote.
The twenty-four choose from their own
number a syndic, who acts as chief
magistrate during his lifetime. Not
withstanding the autonomy of the An-
dorran government, a protectorate is
claimed by France, the latter republic
appointing one member of the supreme
bench; besides which the court of final
resort for Andorran lawsuits Is that of
the cassation In Paris. But there Is
no further Interference. The people of
Andorra are a splendid race, who find,
in the mountain regions and on the fer
tile plains of their country, profitable
work, mining Iron and lead and raising
fruit. More than a thousand men serve
in the army of the republic of Andorra.
Wedged between Vermees, In Bel
gium, and Alx-la-Chapelle is another
small republic that of Mausuet, with
an area of four square miles. Three
thousand people here enjoy the privi
leges of nationhood, and a similar num
ber have done so for more than 200
years. Mausuet is the capital town.
nd it monopolises about one-half of
the population. The national council
of five hold office for three years, and
there is also a president, who cannot
be re-elected more than once. Perhaps
the most notable feature of the Internal
economy of this brave little republic,
which Is guaranteed the protection of
the German empire. Is Its army. This
Is composed of Just three soldiers, who
as there never can be any war, vary
the monotony of their leisurely exist
ence by doing duty as policemen. Clear
ly Mausuet must be a virtuous as well
as a peaceable democracy.
With all these examples of the pros
perity and permanence of miniature
republics before us. It would seem hard.
indeed, if Hawaii, with her extensive
territory, Important geographical posi
tion and Insular advantages, exaulsite
climate ana important commerce, and
ner practical guarantee of protection
from the United States, should fall to
wax strong and prosper In the family
of self-ruling nations.

& He Old Age
Is deplorably prevalent h this
nineteenth century. Thousands
die annually young in years,
but as completely worn out as
though the full allotment of their
time had passed over their heads.
The man who feels that he is
breaking down," experiences loss
of strength, sleep, and appetite,
should at once take
that greatest of concentrated food
preparations. It is not a medicine,
but a builder-up of brain, nerve,
and flesh tissue. By its strength-
giving properties, and its action
as an invigorator of each of the
great life-maintaining organs of
the body, it stops the decline,
and gives to the prematurely
broken-down sufferer a new
lease of life, wherein poor health
is an unnecessary adjunct if its
use is continued, '

rona that they will this year hold to their usual custom
of milling STRICTLY OLD WHEAT until the new crop

condition for milling. Washburn-Crosby Co. will take
no risks, and will allow the new wheat fully three
months to mature before grinding.
This careful attention to every detail of milling hat
