Condemns Bltlea

The Army and Navy Register, which

for many years has been an ardent

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/

nite could be given, and it Is to be regretted

that Gen. Miles should have

been betrayed Into such an expression."

"BUndftta, what a btautlful beard

you wear."

"Glad you like lt, M said Blinders,

lighting up. "I don't value it very

highly myself."

"What* 11 you take for it?"

"Tuke for it? Why, wsat could It

bluest uuy one but me?"

"That isn't the question. You say

you don't value it. I would like to

buy it."

"When would you w#ut it?**

"Buyer thirty—which, being interpreted,

means any time within thirty


"What '11 you give?"

"A hundred dollars."

"By Jove, that's a good sum!" And

Blinders began to think what he could

do with a buudred dollars.

"Oh, I see your game!" he said presently.

"You'll call for it by sections.

That would leave me in a beautiful

to, wouldn't it?'

"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)«-

•No Indian chief decorated with stovepipe

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.

besides a good supper after the ball.

And now I must hurry back. The

president has done me the honor to say

she can't get on without me."

"It won't take long. . Sit down in the


"You really don't mean that you are

in earnest? Think how I would look

going back clean shaved."

"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."

I smiled.

"I suppose you'U knock down that

story and"—

"The whole thing will be all over the

ballroom in ten minutes."

He turned pale.

"What '11 you take to settler he


"Will Blinders, 1 don't want your
