THE CITIZEN, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 1, 1010.
"I wonder what's tho uintter nt I'o
gram's," snld Davo Hlughnui to his
wlfo oas morning ns ho stoMl n) front
of tho house looking down p-ei tho
corn to tho rear of Pogrntn's I turn.
"Thnr hnln't no life about the piacj
nohow, nn thar hain't been none slnco
"You Jlst mind your own business,
Davo Illnghaui, an' let other people's
alone. You know the trouble you got
Into by Investigating the Partridge af
fair. Like enough Pqgram's gone
a-shootln' or Bomethln'."
"But thar's such a deathly look
about It. Pogrom never leaves his
placo 'cept nt reg'lar times. lie lives
thar nil alone nn' Is jlst In n condi
tion fur a Orst class murder. Now 1
think of It, night afore last I henrd a
shot In that direction right In tho mid
dle of the night an' somehow I felt as
ef a ghost had passed."
"Well, why don't you go down an'
see about It?"
"Iteckon I hain't got no time."
The truth was that Ilinghaiu was a
superstitious man, with a horror nt
coining upon anything ghostly. lie
could have gone down to Pogrnm's as
well as not for all the work he did on i
his farm, for he was as lazy as he was
superstitious. Instead of going to 1
work he went over to talk to Steve I
Blackburn, who owned the nest farm. '
and endeavor to Interest him In the
matter. Stove was picking berries, but
pnused in his work and heard Illng- ,
ham through, then said deliberately:
"iteckon I hain't got no less to do
Dave went the round of the farms
that morning, spreading the news of
a tragedy at Pogram's. The farmers
could nil look down on the deserted
place, for Fogrnm's was In the valley
an open space through which the road
ran nnd knots of them gathered on
the hills and speculated ns to what
was tho matter. Tho Pogram farm
had Indeed an uncanny look about It.
The gate was open, as well as the back
window; also the door of tho stable
where Pogram kept his horse and bug
gy. The overlookers compared nBtes
as to when they had last seen Pogram,
and Deacon Huston's date was the
latest, three days before, when he had
met Pogram walking along the road
very much dejected. After the dea
con's testimony the theory was chang
ed from murder to suicide.
Still no one bad yet been found with
sulllclent nerve to go down and face
the corpse. The white curtain In the
rear -window continued to flap, as
much as to say, "Why don't you
come?" But the better the groups
looking down on Pogram's understood
the invitation tho more disinclined
were they to accept it. Finally it -was
agreed that some one should go, and
the choice fell upon Dave II lug 1mm.
"Oh, I don't take no Interest in tho
matter;" said Dave, blanching. "I'm
goln" to work."
But Dave had called attention to the
tragedy and dwelt upon It and stirred
It up till his neighbors began to hold
him responsible. Ike Merton and Tom
Mnrkley boldly told Dave that, since
he had first noticed the stillness about
Pogram's, ho was the person to Inves
tigate the cause. Dave tried to crawl
out of It, but the two men insisted,
agreeing to back him up.
"Serves you right, Dave," said his
wife, who understood his natural dis
inclination nt facing unpleasant scenes.
"Ef you hadn't said nothin' about 'it,
you'd 'a' been let alone."
The three men started down the hill.
Dave In advance. Ho wanted the rear,
but Ike Merton had concluded to take
his revolver, to be ready In case of an
emergency, and playfully pointed It nt
the chosen lender, Infusing Into him
the necessary stimulus. The Investi
gators proceeded, climbing the fences
on their route, watched by tho group
of people on the hill. When they came
to the rear of Pogram's farm they
halted a moment for observation. Tho
willow tree hung mournfully oyer the
wood house; the tin cup rested Immov
able on the pump; the curtain Mapped
from the rear window.
"Iteckon you'd better go ahead with
the shootin' iron, Ike." said Dave.
"Thar mought be some of the murder
ers thar ylt."
"You take It," said Ike, hnudlug him
the revolver. "I hain't no fchot no
how." Dave staggered on. pausing nt tho
stable door. Pogram's horse and bug
gy, the only occupants, were gone.
"They've cleaned out the stock,
shore enough," said Tom Markley.
.See the tracks of the buggy," said
"Uu on, Dave," said both, seeing
that their leader was Inclined to turn
Thus urged, Dave staggered to tho
house, nnd after several Ineffectual
efforts to gather sulllclent courage to
approach the open window ho at last
did so and, white ns a sheet, hooked In,
his two companions peering over his
There were shouts from up the road,
nnd the Investigators, turning, saw
Pogram's buggy, followed by several
teams, coming nt full speed. Pogram,
who was dressed In his best Sunday
suit, drove his own vehicle, beside him
a young woman in n white muslin
dress, with a veil and orange blossoms
on her head, whilo behind was a bridal
party of the friends of both.
"You, Dave Hlnghnin. git away from
my winder!" cried Pogram ns he turn
ed into the yard.
Tho mystery was solved. Pogram
had been courting and the day tho
deacon saw him had been refused, but
tho girl had suddenly changed her
mind, nnd Pogrom had gone to bo married.
When You "3ee Cars."
Tho mnn who when strmtc vloleutly
on the bend says he "saw stars" Is not
far from telling the truth. The fact
Is that there Is a phosphorescent pow
er In tho eye which does not attract n
person's attention under ordinary con
ditions, but which Is distributed nnd
revcnls itself whenever the head gets
a sudden shock and sometimes even
In the act of sneezing. A blow on the
head results In a pressure of the blood
vessels upon tho retina, causing cither
total dnrkness or a fnlut blue light
which floats before the eyes, and It is
lu this faint blue light the Imagination
discerns the thousands of fantastic
forms nnd figures thnt by general ac
ceptance are termed stars; hence,
while tho nstronomlcnl display so fre
quently mentioned may be said to bo
entirely n creature of thd Imagination,
there Is nt least some foundation for
the Idea. The true nature of the sen
sation Is never very apparent, even to
the victim, for the simple reason that

An Odd Nugget of Gold.
There have been . mnuy Inrge nnd
oddly shaped gold nuggets found In
tho United States nnd elsewhere, but
the oddest of them all was that dis

gully, near Melbourne, Australia. In

the exact counterpart In contour of a
colosral human hand held open, with
the exi option of the thumb nnd fore
finger, which were closed together In
a manner so as to make It appear that
the thumb was holding 4ho finger In
place. Its greatest length was twelve
and a half inches and Its greatest
breadth eight Inches. It was of the
very purest gold, with but n little of
foreign substances ndhering, mostly
between the "lingers," and weighed
G17 ouuees. It was found In the north
west main drive of the Mldhas mine.
120 feet below the surface of the earth
and at a spot only fifty feet from
where tho famous Lady Brassey nug
get was discovered the year before. It
weighed fifty-one pounds of pure gold.

"But I have never been through such

"Well, then," retorted tho actress,

been dismissed from the company."
His face fell.

Balzac and Black Coffee.
Balzac was addicted to the use of
strong bla'ck coffee and depended upon
It as a nervous stimulant during the
hours which he devoted to composi
tion. Its effect he has himself de
scribed In theso words:
"The coffee falls Into your stomach.
Immediately everything starts Into ac
tion. Your Ideas begin to move like
Grand Array battalions on the battle
field, and the battle opens. Memories
arrive at a run, standards flying; the
light cavalry of comparisons breaks
Into a magnificent gallop; tho artillery
of logic dashes up and unllmbers;
thoughts come rushing up ns sharp
shooters; characters spring up on nil
sides; tho paper becomes covered with
ink, for tho struggle has begun and
ends in torrents of black water like
the battle in black powder."

"The smartest thing one can be this
summer Is quaint," Enys a fashion cor
respondent from the French capital.
"Tho 'odd, fanciful, slngular'-dlctlon-ary
definitions of quaint are those ap
plicable to the present fashion. It is
not exactly plcturosqueness thnt Is
nlmcd nt, but singularity. It amounts
sometimes to untidiness, but moro of
ten to n fascinating nnd apparently
unstudied neatness. The hats are
quaint, any 'shape at all and worn

hair showing underneath at either
side, often none showing In front.
Then coats are (plaint. I saw one se

Tho effect was as If the coat hnd been
donned over a decollete gown. It waH
singular. A long racing coat of green
velvet wns braided across, hussar

waist, showing n blouse of delicate
laces. Tho effect was fanciful. There
will bo wild things done under this li
cense of qualutness. On tho other
hand, wo shall see wonderfully attrac

covered in gay printed cotton was
made to match n big hat of white
