Among the Instructions given me when
I engaged aa sheep herder in Now South
Wales was to stand neutral between tbo
hushrangers and tho mounted police.
This was tho only wny to got on with tho
latter and avoid bein}; murdered.
1 had been out on tho sheep range
a I ii mt four weeks when I met my firs,
bushranger. It was just nt daylight, and
I was cooking my breakfast when three
men rode up to the hut and dismounted.
T#oy entered the hut and looked me over
for ii minute in silence. Then the lender
"You are a new man on the range, 1
see, but I think you are up to things. If
you play us fair, you need have no fear.
Can you get us some breakfastV"
I was considerably rattled over the arrival of sueh guests, but I put a good
face on it aud cooked for them until they
were satisfied. They had whisky with
them and ulso plenty of cigars, and they
were iu no hurry to leave.
Just at dusk on the previous day, as 1
learned from their conversation, they had
held up a stage 50 miles away and then
had ridden all night. As booty they had
ahout £100 In cash, three watches and a
woman's earrings and finger rings. They
were not at all shy of talking before me
and at me. They were headed for a big
ravine to the west and about live miles
away, where a camp had been made aud
u fourth man was waiting for them.
They asked when the police had called
last, how much travel there wns on the
hlghw iy and many other questions, nnd
I got a goldpiece to pay for their entertainment.
They had ridden bo far and by such
devious ways that they had no fear of
the native trackers employed by the police nnd therefore made no effort to blind
their trail as they rode off.
I saw to that, however. Scarcely were
they out of sight when I rounded up my
flock and drove my thousand sheep back
and forth across the hoof prints until
they were entirely obliterated. It was
well for the bushrangers that 1 did so.
At noon a squad of mounted police arrived. They had not been in chase of the
robbers, but had received orders to ride
out und bond them off before tbey could
reach the ravine.
I was sharply questioned as to what
I had seen, and my evasive replies nrous-
ed the suspicion of the lieutenant in
charge of the men. He coaxed and
threatened by turns, but I knew that to
give the bushrangers away was to bring
a knife to my throat, and no information
was obtained from me. Before riding
away the police made a circuit, and but
for my care they certainly would have
picked up the trail. Next day they returned, having had their ride in vain, aud
they had not been gone un hour when a
bushranger appeared.
lie was one of my visitors, and I soon
found that I had undergone an unsuspected test. He had been left behind in
tho scrub when the others rode away.
He had seen me blind the trail, and he
also knew of the vists of the police. Had
I played his gang fr^se he would have
heen at hand to take n speedy revenge.
The man complimented me on my discretion and had a bite to eat before he
left, and during the next six months I
encountered the full gang several times.
1 did no spying for them, aud the information I gave them was of little account.
I bought to follow my instructions und
stand neutral.
At length the country became too hot
for them. Tho police routed them out of
the ravine, and when two had been killed
the others rode into the north country
and were heard of no more.
It may have been two months before
the next gang appeared. Tit is was what
was known as Hell Joe's gang and numbered six men. Why they called the
leuder Hod Joe I never could learn. He
was not even a red haired man. On the
contrary, he had light hair, blue eyes, a
well cut face nnd would have passed
anywhere as a settler above the ordinary
class. Every one of those six men had
been sent into penal servitude for murder or burglary, and some had served
seven or eight years of their life sentences before escaping, but they were not
a tough looking crowd, so far ns facet
They came as all gangs enme nnd went
without warning. The country was congratulating itself on being entirely free
from bushrangers and the police were
taking things easy for the first time i©
three or four year* when lted Joe's gang
worked down through the ranges and
made its first hold up within 13 miles of
my hut. Five settlers who were returning from some sort of public meeting
were held up und relieved ot everything
of value. The robbers had poor horses,
and tho settlers had good ones. There
was an exchange without consulting the
foldings of the settlers.
It was two hours after midnight on a
moonlight night that I was roused up hy
the arrival of the six. They wero hungry
and wanted food.
When they had turned their horses
loose and crowded into my hut, I saw
the most famous bandit Australia ever
produced. In his two years of ranging
Ued Joe held up more people and reaped
more plunder than any other robber did
in five. How many killings were placed
to his credit I do not know, but they cer*
talnly numbered a score, and five or sit
of his victims belonged to the police
"We want as good a mnal ns you can
get us, my man," said lied Joe as he
looked me over, and that was about all
that wns said to me during the two
hours they wcro in the hut. It was taken for granted that I was a neutral.
They ate, drank, Bnioked und yarned until davlight came. I had caught up their
horses tot them, and as they mounted
the leader gare me a soveroign.   They
did not ask me to blind their trail nor to
put the police on u false scent, but seemed to have confidence that they could
hold their own against any force.
In u week the police were after them,
and inside of a mouth the gang was
broken up. That meuut that two were
killed and the others scattered.
1 bud neither aided nur betrayed the
police, but it came about that I was
charged with the latter offense, aud, being arrested und taken before a magistrate, 1 was sentenced to three mouths in
jail. When my time had expired, 1
was warned to "move on," and I went up
the country u hundred miles und took
service on a stock farm.
Ucd Joe had been making a name
meanwhile. With only a single companion he had returned to the scene of his
first operations and was pushing business
tor all it was worth. When finally driven out again, he rode to the south and
held his ground for six months. Then he
made a long ride to the north and terrorized a huge extent of country for u time,
and he was working back when his career was cut short.
It is a curious coincidence that I cooked the first breakfast for him after he
turned out and that the last supper ho
ever ate was in my hut. I was herding
cattle now, but was alone, ns before. I
had just rounded up my herd for the
Ulgbt and was riding toward my but lo
cook my meal when two bushrangers
broke out of the scrub and waited for mo
to come up. 1 took them for settlers at
first and did not recognize Hed Joe till
he called out:
"So it's you, Is it, Fraser? When did
you exchange sheep for cuttle?"
They wanted not only support, but Information. When I had cooked for them,
Joe began asking questions, and, to my
consloruation, I soon found that the pair
hud planned to hold up Major Burbanks,
my boss.
It wns a distance of about 12 miles to
the house, and there were at least four
men about the place. The major had a
nephew with him, thus making a force of
six, and I knew there would be shooting
to kill. I told (ho fellows plainly what
they might expect and did my utmost to
dissuade them, but was laughed at In a
go >d uatured way.
They rode off about 0 o'clock. I wns
tempted lo cut iu ahead of them nnd
give lhe alarm, but as I planned it out 1
saw that they were watehing me too
closely. They wero In good spirits us
they rode away, und Hed Joe called back
that they would breakfast with me.
As I learned afterward, they rode
straight for the house. Boldly they summoned the major to open the door. He
fired through a window aud killed Joe's
comrade in his u*.ck. When the alarm
was raised, the four men who slept iu the
stables turned out nnd began shooting.
For a quarter of an hour it was six to
one. Rod Joe would not be driven away.
He fought from behind cover, nnd he
fought in the open, and he killed one
man nnd wounded another, lie had routed the outside force when the major got
a bead on him und sent a bullet through
his lungs.
Then the bandit, still fighting, mouut-
ed his horse and drew off, aud no one
dared follow. With his life ebbing away
at every hound of his horse, he rode
back to my hut, 1 heard him coming and
turned out in time to help him off the
saddle' He did not say a word until 1
had curried him into the hut and laid him
on my bod and examined his wound.
Then ho whispered;
"How bad is It?   Am I done for?"
1 told him lie was mortally wounded.
I stanched the blood and gave him
brandy from his flask, and, though he
rallied a little, it was only a rally. He
was silent for a long time and seemed
to be redacting.   Suddenly lie said:
"Well, it had to come, and odds Is tho
difference. I have always said 1 wouldn't
be taken alive, and the police will find
only a dead man. 1 am going to do some
thing for you. Get pencil and paper nnd
write down what I say."
He nnd his companion had cached their
plunder only a week before in one of the
foothills of lleeniarang mountain. Ho
said the money and jewelry would foot

being said, I headed across the country
for the mountain.
Without much difficulty I found the
ravine into which they had descended
with the treasure, but I scarcely had
reached the bottom when I realized that
the plunder never wns to come into my
hands. There had been a landslide nnd
for a distance of 100 feet each way from
the cache the ravine bad been filled with
earth, rocks and trees to a depth of 100
feet. It would have taken an army of
men a year to clear that ravine, and then
a fresh fall would have been ready for

will the hand of man ever obtain it.—

had tlie good fortune to find one which
was made entirely of silk. The thread

Studies Human Nature ami Is Skilled
In Diplomat*}'.
The book agent is a student of human
nature. He attacks man at his weakest
points. What is calculated to minister
tu a man's vanity more than to have a
gentleman, well groomed and of pleasing
address, approach and offer to sell hiin
some literary production? The fact that
the book agent is there presupposes that
tlie man is a lover of iiteratare, that
he has leisure to road books and that
he bas money to spend for thorn. The
joke about the book agent being unwelcome will have to he relegated along
with the mother-in-law joke. The fucts
will not sustain it. The book agent approaches a man, presents himself and
proceeds to business. "I am introducing
a new work, Mr. Jones, something that I
know you will appreciate." Is Jones going to throw a man out of tbe third
story window who think^ lie will appreciate a new book?   Not much.
The agent continues: "Mr. Brown suggested that you might like to look it
over. He takes a set in half morocco."
The fact that Brown thinks it will interest him pleases Jones still more. He
values Brown's opinion. He likes to
havo Brown think he appreciates good
literature. Brown must also think he
can afford It. He looks over tho book,
predisposed in its favor already. Then
comes tho objection that lie cannot afford it. The book agent treats that excuse ns a joke. His actions say: "I know
you enn afford It. Brown knows you
can nfford it." The book agent evidently believes that ho is talking to a man
of means, nnd Jones does not care to
have him believe anything else. Perhaps tho set of books sells for $80. He
talks to Jones as if that wero an insignificant sum, not worth hesitating about,
although, if the truth were known, tlie
hook agent really thinks the $20 he will
get as commission for making tho sale
is so large a sum that he can afford to
lay off the rest of the day and go fishing.
Jones hesitates, the book agent drops
his fountain pen, Jones picks it up nnd
he is lost.
The agent folds up his prospectus and
after assuring Jones he will never regret the purchase stmts for the door.
But a thought strikes him, and he comes
back. "By tho way, Mr. Jones, do you

An Impression.
An English writer, telling of a trip of
an ocean steamer, said that out of 220
cabin passengers we had only one little
girl on board, aged about 10. Of course
we all made much of her. One day I waa
making a sketch from memory of Fastuet
rock. My little friend was by me, and
she asked:
"How can you sketch a thing that you
do not see?"
"I remember It, I have an impression
of it," I said.
"What Is an impression?"
I explained by making an Impression
with the round end of the pencil on the
back of the baud uud then saying,
"There is nn impression, and one is also
made by seeing—only in a different manner—on the mind or brain." With this
explanation the little girl seemed to be
satisfied. The next day I was talking
with a bishop on board and said to him,
"My little friend here can tell you what
an impression is."
"And what is an impressionV" he asked.
"Oh," sold she, "it is just a round hole
made on tho back of your hand by pressing u pencil on itl"

They had been talking of snakes.
"Speaking of su„l i_," said a man
whose manners and attire smacked
strongly of the west, "a cold snap und a
snake saved my life once when I was
prospecting in northern Texas. I had
been out and gut lost in the mountains,
and I reckon I would have starved if
it hadn't been for the change of weather
and the snake. You've heard about the
northers in Texas that come down with
a rush aud change a summer day in autumn to a freezer from Freezeville,

a thing that caught me. I was stumbling along about dead one day at noon

Stretched on the rocks sunning themselves. I hadn't so much as a stick to
defend myself with, and I wns kept on
the watch every minute. All at once,
before I or the snakes knew what was
happening, the sky clouded up and a
norther swept down on us. I made my
way to a cave I had noticed near by, and,
getting far back into it. 1 kept from
freezing, but I could not have a fire, because there wasn't any timber up there
on the mountains.
"Early the next morning I got up and
concluded to make for the valley, where
somebody might find my dead body anyhow after tlie starving bad finished me.
It was colder than Alaska, and I hadn't
gone more than a hundred yards before
n big gray wolf sneaked out of a cave
just beyond mo and came after me. I
gave up then, for I was weak as a kitten and hnd nothing to fight with, but I
couldn't help making some kind of a
show, nnd I looked around to get any old
thing to hit the wolf a lick, when I noticed a snake on a fiat rock, frozen hard.
I grabbed it just as tbe wolf got near
enough to growl, nnd as he came at mo
I hit him a three base hit with that ball
club of a frozen snake that knocked him
silly. It was a square one, right on the
jaw, and he keeled over like n log. Then
I hopped on him and thumped the lifo
out of him.
"Wolf meat isn't prime eating, hut anything will do for n starving man, nml it
wasn't long till I had sliced n meal off of
him with my penknife, nnd, making n
bee line for tho valley where there were
some trees, I soon had a tire and the wolf
meat cooking on it. That saved my life
and gave mo enough strength to go back
and cut off his hams, which I carried
away with me and lived on for.two days
longer, when 1 was picked up by some
other prospectors and restored to my
friends. Nowadays when I see a snake
I always have a very friendly feeling for
him. whether* ho is frozen or not."

A negro epicure caught a line largo
possum. He skinned, dressed and hung
it before n blazing fire under a spreading
tree, and while it was baking to a delectable brown lay down on the ground aud
went to sleep beside it. About the time
the possum was done a slick little darky
happening that way stole the possum
and ate it up. Then he took the bones
nnd laid them down in front of his sleeping brother, greased his lips with possum
grease nnd smeared possum grease over
his fingers.
When the owner of the possum awoke,
ho looked about dazed nnd surprised to
find his piece de resistance gone, but the
bones lay in front of him, he saw the
grease upon his fingers and tasted it upon
his lips.

Scientific Policeman'* Simple Scheme
to Make Door Sleepers Move On.
Tho New York police force is credited
with being one of the best iu the world,

born for greater things, lie hns invented
a method for ridding his beat of vagrants
and doorstep sleepers. This officer is attached to tho Church street station nnd
patrols In the neighborhood of Washington street and the Battery, where cheap
lodging houses, small been saloons, "labor
ugencies" nnd tho genuine "Weary "Willie" luxuriantly abound, so he has almost
daily opportunity to test his invention.
The vagrant is not particular where he
sleeps, so that it costs nothing, and doorways are favorite lodging places. It waa
a sleeper in one of these that received a
never lo bo forgotten shock the other day.
He was asleep in the doorway of u saloon, with his bend thrown back against
tho jamb and his logs sprawled over the

tho inventor. His hand went under his
coattails, and it looked as if he were going for his "gun" in deadly earnest. A
spectator stood petrified, waiting to see
a bloody tragedy enacted, but the blue-
coat pulled out a small vial nnd, leaning
over the sleeper, poured some of its contents, on his thick, reddish mustache.
The effect was electrical. With a Wild
snort and a gurgling gasp the hitherto
inert figure sprang into the air and clawed nt his mouth and throat; tlie tears
streamed out of his eyes, which were distended with terror, and he stood gasping
and making horrible faces and still clawing frantically ut his mouth nnd throat,
while the policeman smiled grimly and
waited for the customary denouement.
It came In a moment. As soon ns the
terrorized doorstep lodger had recovered
enough of his breath to permit his moving he started hurriedly up Washington
street, sans coat, sans hat, sans every
thing but a consuming desire to put as

Almsst every woman at the head of
a home meets daily with innumerable little worries in her household
affairs. They may he too small to
notiee an hour afterwards, but it Is
nevertheless these constant littie
worries that make so many women
look prematurely old. Their effect
may be noticed in sick or nervous
headaches, iiekle appetite, a feeling of
constant weariness, pains in tha back
and loins, or in a sallow complexion,
and the coming of wrinkles, which
every woman who desires comeliness
dreads. To those thus afflicted Dr.
Williams Pink Pills offer a speedy
and certain cure ; a restoration of
color to the cheeks, brightness to the
eye, a heallhy appetite, and a sense
of freedom from weariness.
Among the thousands of Canadian
women who have found new health
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills Is Mrs. Fran-
els Poirler, of Valleyfleld, Que. Mrs.
Polrler wits a sufferer for upwards of
seven years ; she hail taken treatment
from several doctors, and had used a
number of advertised medicines, but
with no good results. Mrs. Poirler
says :—"Only women who suffer as 1
did can understand the misery I endured for years. As time went on
and the doctors I consulted, and the
medicines I used did not help me, I
despaired of ever regaining health.
There were very few days that I did
not suffer from violent headaches, and
the least exertion would make my
heart palpitate violently. My stomach seemed disordered, and I almost
loathed the food I forced myself to
eat, I was very pale, and frequently
my limbs would swell so much thai
1 feared that my trouble was developing into dropsy. I had almost
constant pains in the back and loins.
It was while I was in this sad condition that I read in La Presse of
the cure of a woman whose symptoms were much like mine througli
the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
I told my husband and he urged me
to try them, and at once got me
three boxes. Before I had used them
all I felt better, and I got another
supply of the pills. At the end of
the month I was strong enough to
do my household work, and before
another month had passed I had entirely recovered my health. I am
sorry that I did not learn of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills sooner, for I know-
that they would have saved me several years of sickness and misery,
and I feel that I cannot too strongly
urge other sick women to use them."
The condition indicated in Mrs.
Podrier's ease shows that the blood
this purpose Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
and woman's best friend. They are
particularly adapted to cure the ailments from which so many women
suffer in silence. Througli tho use of
these pills the blood in enriched, the
nerves made strong, and the rich
glow of health brought back to pale
and sallow cheeks. There would be
less suffering if women would give
those pills a fair trial. Sold by all

stated that Her Majesty has seen 11
lord chancellors, ten prime ministers, six speakers ol tho House of
Commons, at least three bishops ol
every seo and five or six ol many
sees, five archbishops of Canterbury
and six archbishops of York aud five
commanders-in-chief. She has seen
five dukes of Norfolk succeed each
other as carl marshal and has outlived every duke and duchess nnd
ovory marquis and marchioness who
boro that rank in 1887, She has
outlived every mcml or of the Jockey

Simplicity the  lt«nt   i.irm,
The day of refreshments lias passod
away, perhaps never to return. Cultured people live more simple and
more daintily. Afternoons "at home"
arc social gatherings, not feasts ;
consequently they may be given by
those whose incomes do not justify
them in entertaining in a more expensive way. Then, too, they are
elastic. A dinner party, as a rule,
can only be given to a chosen few,
but an afternoon affair is siillieienM.v
elastic to include all of one's friends
ami calling acquaintances.-Ladles'

One thing New Jersey lias which
cannot he found elsewhere In the
whole wide world, and that Is a farm-
Ing monkey. This monkey is a sulall
gray beauty of the gentler sex, and her
age Is 22. Her name is Mattie. She
lives on Samuel barren's farm, near
Mattie Is a trained farmhand, says
the New York Herald. Under direction
she feeds the swine and milks the
cows and helps to cultivate a good sized vegetable garden. She plants nnd
hoes nnd picks tlie fruit and even assists in packing it for shipment to market And when the money comes from
selling tlie produce, the result of the
Bwea* of an honest monkey's brow,
Mattie is given some of the coin. This,
her owner gays, she carefully deposits
in an Iron church savings hank, where
Mattie has accumulated nearly $200.
And Mr. Farren snys, "Were It not for
Mattle's vanity nnd consequent love
for line apparel she would In time own
her own farm."
This monkey dotes upon finery and
gewgaws. But in the hot days of the
early spring she tears off her garments
and refuses to wear them again until
the first coming of tlie frost.
Mattie is more human thnn most of
her simian brothers nnd sisters even In
physical formation. Her prehensile
tail Is shorter than theirs, nnd her head
Is set less forward, so that she can the
more easily stand erect, as she does In
fact when she walks, runs or jumps.
Her eyes nre farther apart, her forehead higher, her nose more Dearly perfect, her jaws less projecting and her
ennine teeth sninller nnd so less brutal.
She hns blue gray eyes nnd a silver
gray coat over skin that is almost scarlet.
Her cleverness and the things she
does may be shown in a page from her
dally life. Mattie sleeps In a small
trundle bed near thnt of her master,
Farmer Farren, In n picturesque, vine
covered cottage surrounded by tall
trees and flowers and ferns. She always awakes at exactly 5 o'clock In
the morning and taking n long, thin
stick which she keeps for that purpose
pokes it into tlie cages of the 30 canary
birds and the 20 white rabbits which
also sleep In eccentric Samuel Farren's
cozy bedchamber.
The angry protests of these smaller
and less Intelligent pets invariably
arouse the sleeping farmer, and when
he reproaches Mattie for breaking in
on his morning slumber she jumps up
and down with a distressed expression
of countenance, tapping herself on the
chest with one linger, shaking her head
from side to side nnd chattering violently.
Then she stalks away with a stately
stride to her little oaken tub, which
stands at the curb of a boiling spring,
with which the farm of Mr. Fnrren
nnd Mattie is blessed. After drawing
the water she lnves her face nnd hands
nnd with great regularity Indulges In a
plunge bath on Sunday mornings. This
she does winter nnd summer, and so
hardened has this little product of the
tropics become that she does not even
shiver at her bath when the ground Is
covered with snow. She brushes her
hair, such as it Is, with n tiny eyebrow
brush; but, try as Farmer Fnrren hns,
he has never succeeded In teaching
Matlie to use n toothbrush.
In winter the ablutions nre followed
by dressing, nnd the queer poses and
grimaces the monkey woman produces
in her little mirror as she gowns herself In fiery red or brilliant green, her
favorite colors, nre laughable In the
extreme. But In summer she leaves
her tub to snunter out under the rose
bushes for n fragrant, before breakfast
When she thinks Farmer Farren Is
dressed, she goes to the kitchen and
taking down from lis hook a small dinner bell swings It lustily until she sees
the beginning of breakfast preparations. Then she seats herself nt a low
table near Mr. Farren's nnd, spreading
n snowy napkin across her knees, patiently nwnits the coming of tlie food.
She believes In eating, does Mattie,
In food for man nnd beast nnd for man-
beast, too, for she likes her own share
Immensely. So she liberally (Ills the
bucket for the chortling hogs nnd scatters grain for the myriad chickens nnd
geese nnd for the beautiful carrier
pigeons, which she greatly admires.
While the carriers ent Mattie Will
stand within their coop and, with arms
akimbo nnd smnll head critically
perched on one side, will regard them
with evident pride nnd high approval.

There never was, and never will be, a universal panacea, in one remedy, for all ills to
which flesh is heir—the very nature of many
curatives being such that were tho germs oi
other and differently seated diseases rooted
(n the system of tho patient—what would
relieve one ill in turn would aggravate the
other. Wo have, however, in Quinine Wine,
when obtainable in a Bound, unadulterated
state, a remedy fo. many and grievous ills.
By its gradual and judicious use the frailest
systems are led into convalescence and
strength by the influence which Quinine exerts on naturo's own restoratives. It relieves
the drooping spirits of those with whom a
chronic state of morbid despondency and
lack of interest in lifo is a disease, and, by I
tranquilizing the nerves, disposes to sound
and refreshing sleep—imparts vigor to the
action of the blood, which,being stimulated,
courses throughout the veins, strengthening
the healthy animal functions of the system,
thereby making activity a necessary result,
strengthening tho frame, and giving lifo to
the digestive organs, which nnturally demand increased substance—result, improved
appetite. Northrop __ Lyman, of Toronto,
have given to the public their superior Quinine Wine at the usuul rate, and, gauged by
the opinion of scientists, this wine approaches nearest perfection of any in the
market.   All druggists sell it.
