supporter of Lieut-Gen. Mljes, condemns
Gen. Mlles's recent report of
atrocities In the Philippines. "In considering
the conditions In the Philippines,
It should be considered that we
have had in the Islands 139,000 m.Mi
and 6,000 officers. The so-called atrocities
were committed by not more than
twelve officer.;. This is a small percentage
and might well justify silence
when we consider that the subject has
been and is still the object of official
investigation. It was a mistake to
have touched on the matter in this official
way unless something more deft/

that Gen. Miles should have
been betrayed Into such an expression."

"I'll call for it all at once.*
After rummaging his brain to find a
catch somewhere Blinders gave me a
mil of sale for his beard—to be called
for anywhere within thirty days or j
forfeit double the price.
Now there was a reason for all this j
which Blinders did not understand. He
was the wealthiest bachelor in the
town as well as the stingiest One day
a number of ladies came to me and
asked'me if I could suggest a plau by
which they could get a donation out of
him for a benevolent enterprise. I told
them I would think it over.
Blinders was a pushing fellow not
only in business, but socially. He was
a self made man, which was to his
credit, but he didn't know what the
word modesty meant His assurance
in making his way into "society" was
only equaled by his embarrassment
whenever he blundered into a breach
of etiquette. He was in constant terror
lest he should appear in some unfortunate
The ladles were getting up a ball for
the benefit of their charity and had appointed
me one of the floor managers.
I wrote requesting that my name be
dropped and Blinders' put on in its
stead. This was done, and Blinders
was so delighted that he at once sent
the ladies a check for $10.
"You are very bright" said the president
of the society to me. "It Is a
wonder that we didnt think of that
"Possibly Mr. Blinders' donation may
be far more worthy of hit social elevation,"
I replied, "than a niggardly
$10. Let us wait"
On the night of the ball Blinders was
on hand resplendent in evening dress,
wearing the lowest cut white waistooat
straw colored gloves and a pale
green necktie that some wag had told
him was the very intoat thing for, h»i)«-

hat and soldier coat had ever
borne himself more proudly. I watched
him till his self satisfaction had
reached its height; then, putting on
my hat and coat, I went out. Ten minutes
later an attendant handed him a
note from me written from a neighboring
barber shop demanding his
There was a look of extreme anxiety
on his face as he came in; but, attempting
to master it, he came up to
me with a laugh and, slapping me familiarly
on the back, said confidently:
"If s very cute of you, old fellow, awfully
cute. Of course you don't want
your property now. You want a bottle
of champagne, and you shall have it.

And now I must hurry back. The

she can't get on without me."
"It won't take long. . Sit down in the

"You don't need to lose your beard.
There is the forfeit, you know."
"Good gracious, man, the forfeit is
"It only rests with you, Blinders," I
said resolutely, "to give me your beard
or pay the forfeit"
He looked into my eye and saw that
I was not to be cajoled or browbeaten
or in any way deprived of my advantage.
The alternative flashed through
his mind, and his love of money for a
time prevailed. He determined to remain
away from the ball for the rest
of the evening.
"All right," I said. "What excuse
will you give?"
"Suddenly taken ill."

He turned pale.
