"My boy," said Bnlllngton Bllger,
the eminent speculator In stocks. "I
Intend to do something this year that
I havo never done before. I have
never taken much stock in this Christ
mas foolishness. It seems to me that
people carry It to an absurd extreme;
but, as I have said, I am going to
break away from my custom this
year. You aro helping to support your
widowed mother,
are you not?"
Tho boy who
marked the quo
tations up on the
b i g blackboard
made a strong
effort to conceal
his emotion as he

of you. You de
serve tho highest
praise for your
thoughtf u 1 n o s s.
A mother who
has such a son
should be very proud of him, and I
have no doubt that your mother fully
appreciates your worth. What I start
ed to say a moment ago was that I in
tend to do somothlng to encourage
you in your work something to prove
to you that I wish you well and that,
however cold I may have at times
appeared, I am kind at heart."
"Oh, thank you, sir," said tho boy.
"Mother will bo proud when she
learns that I have been able to win
your respect."
"I like to hear a boy talk as you
talk," the eminent gentleman contin
ued. "A boy who is glad for his
mother's sake to win the approval of
others may always be depended upon
to give a good account of himself.
You may not have suspected It, but I
have for a long time been watching
you. I have noticed that you do not
smoke cigarettes;
that you use lit
tle slang; that
you pay strict at
tention to your
duties and al
ways show a
proper deference
to those above

told mo when I
started out In the
world," tho boy
replied, "to al
ways keep away
from bad habits
and be respect

had the right to
be treated re

an estimable mother. With such a
mother and such a character a3 you
seem to possess I have no doubt that
you will succeed in life. It would
be a pity to disturb your self-reliance
by giving you money. I shall not do
that. I do not believe in giving money
to people anyhow. It is a bad prac
tice. There aro other ways of ex
tending help that are much more ef
fective much better for those who.
receive It Now It 1b my purpose to'
do something for you."
"I I hardly know how to thank
you, sir."
"Oh, never mind that, my boy. The
most eloquent thanks are not always
expressed In
words. Thero aro
other ways of
showing apprecia

bother yourself
if words happen
to fall you. Thero

that I have a

lamb collar and
real mink lining,

"Yes, Bir."
"You would bo surprised if I were
to tell you how much It cost But I
need not dwell upon that. I have
found it extremely comfortable. It
has caused mo to feel sorry for others
who cannot afford such coats. I
think it must be the Christmas spirit
that has come to mo. With the col

that it covers my ears I am able to

throat and he was compelled to wink
rapidly to keep back his tears of

then decide upon any ono person who
stood out above all others In point of
activities in behalf of International
peace. Now, however, Senator Root
gets last year's prize. It comes to
him In recognition of his services in
tho pacification of tho Philippines and
Cuba and In the handling of the American-Japanese
Root a Government Maker.
Ellhu Root was appointed secre
tary of war by President McKinley at
tho close of the Spanish wnr to suc
ceed Secretary Alger and was reap
pointed by President Roosevelt. As
secretary of war the handling of the
difficult problems of what had to do
with Cuba, Porto Rico and the Phil
ippines was loft largely to his judg
ment The Cubans had had no gov
ernmental experience. Tho American
authorities, largely under tho direc
tion of Secretary Root, trained tho en
tiro . personnel of the Cuban govern
ment and handed it over to the island
republic In working order when the
American troops wero withdrawn.
Secretary Root resigned from tho
cabinet Feb. 1, 1904, and was succeed
ed by Mr. Taft, then governor of the
Philippines, lie returned to President
Roosevelt's cabinet ns secretary of
stato July 1, 1005, succeeding the late
John Hay, and remained in that posi
tion until early in 1009.
As secretary of stato in 1905 Mr.
Root negotiated the first eight of the
general arbitration treaties cnterSd
Into by tho United States. Three years
later ho negotiated twice that number,
and his speeches in tho senate have all
been on tho side of treaty obligations
and arbitral settlement
His Work In South America.
In 1900 Mr. Root went to South
America, primarily to attend the In
ternational conference of the Ameri
can republics at Rio do Janeiro, but
also to remove old prejudices and to
pave the way for a better feeling to
ward the United States.- Ho visited
tho chief capitals of South America,
ond everywhere was received with dis
tinction. In 1907 ho went to Mexico, nlso as
secretary of state, and met President
Diaz and the leading statesmen of the
country, again with tho Idea of pro
moting International good will.
Simultaneously with tho recent No
bel nward to Senator Root, It was an
nounced at Tho Hague that ho bad
been selected as a member of tho court
of arbitration to which are to bo sub
mitted tho claims of British, French
and Spanish subjects In regard to prop-

befenss Opens to Save Slayer of Anna
New York, Dec. 17. The sister of
Hans Schmidt, Mrs. Elizabeth Schad
ler, told at her brother's trial of a
"vision" ho had oneo had and then de
scribed a vision that had come to her.
Tho slayer of Anna Aumuller Inter
rupted his own counsel, W. M. K. Ol
cott, to deny that ho is insane.
Schmidt's father took tho stand and
told of several suicides and cases of
Insanity in tho family. Father nnd

blood lust developed In childhood, to
religious mania nnd to Schmidt's belief
that he is not tho son of his father,
but tho child of his own mother nnd
John tho Bnptlst.

Olcott. opening for tho defense, said
ho would show that Schmidt is, has
been and always will bo lusano.
Schmidt edged forward In his chair
