Before reaching the conclusion there  ���������was an earnest debate, which Spider  followed most anxiously. When the decision was reached. Spider, knowing  that every hand would be required in  the herding, begged to be allowed to  fornroneof the force, and, after consul--  Nation with the foreman and the Ballet  <3irl. I consented, and 'as a temporary  1 measure Spider was taken on aa a cowboy t  This waa a season of joy to Spider.  As the glad tidings reached him he be-,  came so exultant that he was unendurable ,At our earnest request he subsided somewhat,after awhile and after he  ���������had gone about from man to man trying to borrow the necessary equipment  ���������horse and saddle���������for the crossing on  the following morning.  We thought we  had   heard   the   last of   him   and were  just about to turn   in when   a sputtering howl from Hollis was followed by a  volley of   bad   language that  was  un-  iiiKstaifatily directed at Spider.  The gist  ���������of this language seemed   to  be that he  ^Hollis) was poisoned. ^The investigation  ������hat immediately followed proved that  this' was   not   true.'   It was  only that  Spider had discovered  in some way the  hiding place of a carefully hoarded bot-  "tleof whisky belonging toHolJis.  Emptying ,the whisky on the ground, Spicier  had filled the   bottle with a mixture of  .ins own  invention, the nature of which  did not transpire, except  that kerosene.  - was one of its more prominent features.  ���������Consoling   himself   in  advance for ttie  .'bard  work   that   the   next  day would  <briug, HolJis had taken some swallows  ���������of  this   mixtuie  beforo  he ������������������ discovered  -what it was that he was drinking.  Then  followed the  remarks  to which I have  referred t- " *-  . To' these remarks Spider made answer, averring that they .were entirely  uncalled for, as the quality of the liquor  iiad been rather improved than otherwise: but that be supposed that Hollis  must be incapablejof jndgirig.  Hollis became annoyed at this and in-  <in}������ed in further language, which was  ���������only hushed when at- la.st Spider was,  captured aud expiated his crime by'a  ^frantic dance, inspired by a well'plied  lariat end. Then the cami> waa at peace  ���������for the night.  ness of which the Oalle: C-'irl had complained. 1 was returning to 'the hunt,  when Spider ei.'.P-'.v.d from the cloud of  dnst 1 hat surronmicd it and cantered  forward to meet-nx   ���������  "Look a-yerl" lie cried in a tone of  authority as- soon as he was close  enough to be beard "Yon ain' got no  business here You ain't'nn good, nohow, in the shape like you are. an  you'll only do .yourself up worse Go  up on that there little rise, where you  can see everything an won't hnrt yer-  self Me':) the boy's., we'll tend ter the  cattle all right. "  Spider's   command   that I should re-  tirc'-was so plainly prompted by a solicitude   for   my welfare   that I could   not  have resented his  tone even had   it not  am used mo' as it did.     Besides, he waa  perfectly right,    1 was of no use whatever in the herding    Evidently intend-,  ing to ?ee that his orders were fully carried ont. Spider   rode  by my side  as I  slowly cantered toward the rise that he  had pointed out to nie.   Though the stir-  en p   leathers  of   the ,borrowed   saddle  were far too long for him. though'they  -were pulled up as far as they would go,  and .though   the  saddle   itself was  so  large that it would have had room in it  for several'  boys of  Spider's  size, still  Spider rode superbly ' I saw that wtien  he way after those cattle.    The pony he  was riding oh was oue^of my own, and  though   Spider   had   had the   choice of  several he had chosen the most unmanageable animal of them all.'   Gappy Lee  was the last man who had attempted to  ride lire   brute.   'He had been promptly  tmcked off   - He'told me afterward that  lie had turned a somersault  so quickly  mat he had"seen the canvas patch that  decorated tho back of his trousers.

I  bad   nearly given   up when Spider, his  pony en the keen  jump, flashed by and  took   up   the   purr-nit.    He   waved   his  hand   as   he   passed  me   and   tried   to  shout, but   his   throat   was   filled with  dust, and the nearest   be could come to  his   nsnal   shrill   cheer wag  a  sort   of  ������������������spluttering gasp.

I was speaking only of tricks of  horsemanship, but Spider misunderstood  me. \  "You ain't seen me doin no tricks  terday, I reckon," he said "in a tone  that showed that he was rather hurt at j  what I said. "You ain't a-goin ter see  none, neither. I'm herdin now. It's  business, an I'm in it fer all I'm worth.'  Yon watch'n see'f I ain't. I mus' go  back now. " Wheeling around on his  hind legs, Concho bucked himself toward the herd as I mounted the rise to  which I had been bound.  The lean, hungry looking cattle gathered on the plain were blended into an  indistinguishable mass by the thin cloud -Pink Pills  of dust that hting over them, thrown ���������ancl the*>  lip by their hoofs as they pawed the  loose- sand.

"Here's yer stake," said he, holding  the notched stick up for inspection.  "Water was a ban an a half over it  when I got there. Stake was clean outer  sight, an I had ter hunt for it."

Tho lingering   tortures   of rheumatism are too .well known to need description", but'it is, not so well known  that  medical  science  now  recognizes  that   'the   primary cause  of  rheumatism is impure or impoverished.blood.  The'result is that hundreds'of .-.inTor-  ers    apply external' remedies    which  cannot possibly cure the trouble. The  oniy thrng that will really cure- l-linu-  matism  is  an internal medicine" that  will enrich the blood and free it from  rheumatic taint. ,   The surest, i[inci>-  est and most effective way to do'this  is .to  take Dr.  Williams'  Fink   Fills,  which   are proved to have cured thousands of cases  of rheumatism,  many  of them after all other medicines had  failed     The  case  of Mr.  Philip    Ferris,  one  of the pioneers of South Fs-  sex.

Mr:   Ferris   has    the  following to say about his illness and cure:  "For fifteen years 1 suffered greatly  from rheumatism.    At times I would  ha\c severe pains in the knees, -while  at others the pain would spread    to  my hips  and  shoulders.    I  tried  several remedies which wero of no avail  until  1    began    using     Dr. Williams'  I took eight or ten boxes  completely     cured     the  trouble, and I  am now as  smart    as  many men much younger.

The question was to find the ring, and  as the clergyman was beginning to become impatient one of those present took  a gold mounted monocle from his eye,  forced out the glass and handed the rim  to the bridegroom, who. with many  thanks to the originator of the happy  thought, bade tlie par_on continue the  service.

It was a  runaway match, and the gentleman Iind  got everything ready, the license, tiro  parson himself���������everything, except the  ring.

How Arthur Brlwhnne Once Scored a  BIr Bent For His Paper. >  "The layman who is unacquainted with  newspaper methods may be inttMcsied in  knowing just how "one goes about making  a piece of news." saysr Allen S.ingiee in  AiiiMee's Magazine. "The best illnsfa-  tion of this, perhaps, is Arthur Brisbane's  arningoifient for John L. Snll.van to h >x  hefore the I'rince of Wales. At thi- ti'i'e  Mr. Brisbane was London co:-re,>pi.ndt'ui  for the New York Sun. it should be un  derstood that the competition among the  London representatives is just a- keen as  though they were serving their sepaii.te  papers ou Park row. and. though living  in an atmosphere of less aggiessive jour  nalism, they never tfor a moment forget  their American education. In this ma ter  Mr.'"Bri.sbane was actuated by no other  motive than to triumph over his rivals  with a legitimate beat, and he found the  (treat American bruiser but too glad to  M><-nnd the idea on the percentage of free  advertisement. The Sun man worked  quietly, quickly and so successfully that  the night for the performance came without any one knowing of it excepting the  Prince! his friends and the members of  the fashionable club <that sheltered the  twelve foot ring.  "At the moment when the referee stepped out to announce the fighters the  prince's equerry, discovered that there  was present nh,untitle(l person, and. what  w'a.svmore^iplor'hble. a newspaper man.  As the resWVjSr "tins discovery Mr. Bris-  bane whi ^ordered to leave the club instantly.'1.' ���������''  ...-'^'Ii-u-J.',.v_>e objected, 'I  am  responsible  ���������ftof^eMjtiolo thing.    You are not going  ���������'to -piit nVe curt?'  ;.i-*f'The'equerry would not hear him, nnd  'Mr! Brisbane, desperate and angry, played his iast card. 'Well. John.' he said,  turning to where the champion-stood toying with one huge pickled paw. 'I've got  to go.    "What'll you doV  "���������That's what I'll do.' replied the.  champion of the world, picking up his  coat and glaring savagely at the equerry.  'If that young feller goes, then I'll go,  understan'?' And the audience -wjas dismayed to see the lighter and reporter  abandon the ringside. It would not do,  however, to disappoint hisroyal highness  so disgracefully, and the. equerry and  Mr. Brisbane finally compromised by the  latter promising to write the account only  for the American press. The Sun of  cotirse had a great beat next day. and every newspaper in America and Thi.gland  quoted the anecdote of John L. Sullivan's  reception by Albert Edward.  "Mr. Sullivan's speech at that period  had extreme limitations, and when introduced to a distinguished person he invariably used the same set phrase. To the  Prince of Wales, after shaking hands, he  observed with dignity and cheerfulness:.  'Prince, I'm giad to meet you. I've often  heard of you.'

"��������� < '        '  Fishing through, the ice is attended with' very much less discomfort  than'a'stranger to 'the sport would'  imagine. There is probably no more  health inspiring recreation known  than the long tramps on snow shoes,  through the woods and over the frozen surface of the lakes, in which the  Canadian hunters and' winter fishermen indulge, when several feet ol  snow covers the face of the country.  aBropl. or speckled'trout are among  the few fishes,that may not be caught  through the ice, but this is not very  much'of a deprivation after all. Fe\t  of them would be tahen if they" were  fished for, since'they'do not take bait  well in the'winter.  ' < Both the big lakers', or. great trout,'  and    the    dore,  or pike-perch,      are  caught in large-numbers through tho  ice iii  Canadian, waters!

The humorous  side of the explanation struck 'several -incautious editors, so that not  less than a dozen persons were convicted of leze majesty in connection  with  that one affair.  A certain German-American, from  Chicago, while excited with wine in  one of the Berlin cafes expressed with  great freedom his opinion of  the. German Government and Emperor William. His remarks were  overheard by two officials ' "sitting  at an. adjoining table, who filed a  formal complaint tp the police.

The six men comprising the crew ������������������.-ere then drawn  ashore through seething billows a  distance of .more than a mile. Captain Charles and his crew of life  savers dragged the life saving apparatus two miles to a point where  the vessel could be seen, and at the  first trial the line sent out from the  mortar fell over tho schooner, and  after it had been made fast the  breeches buoy was sent away. It  reached the schooner all right, but  the sea was running so fiercely and  the northeast wind bore down so  heavily that the men of the station  could not pull the buoy'with its "human freight to the shore. Finally a  horse was hitched to s1 he line, and  the first .sailor was landed, and the  others were rescued in the same way.  Had   Been   There   Herself.

"I was out walking with  my intended the other day, and.her small  niece, a'girl-not over seven years of age,  accompanied us. Naturally the conversation, owing to the near approach of our  wedding day, took a turn that was interesting to two of us, but not to the third.  "Finally I turned to the young lady  who is soon to be my bride and said, with  a smile: - \  " 'I suppose all this talk is over the little one's head?'  "Before she could reply the nose of the  'little one' went up several degrees, and  she answered icily, her words falling like  so many hailstones on a tin roof:  "'Oh. don't mind me. 1 know what it  is.

Their Ue'sh is 'esteemed, as much for  its firm, yet.delicate flavor, as for its  beautiful   whiteness.  In some localities' a large number  of holes are cut in'the ice over tho  banks ,pr bars where'the fish are  known to'lie. The hook isf baited  with a live minnow. A>' comparatively  heavy "sinker is'used, for the fish lie  very, hear the "bottom in '"the still  waters of the lakes: >  Sometimes  the  lines, arc left    over  night,  in.avhich.case  almost 'all      of  them" will be found'.to have, ' hooked"  a fish by morning."   'For fishing      in  the-daytime,  a very "simple-device is  used to signalize-a bite:-.     ' ' .    '  A piece sof, la th, ��������� about two ;, feet,  long, with a hole in ..it, a little nearer one end than the other,'is' used.  Through this hole in the,.lath is  loosely run a crossbar, which is laid  across the hole in the ice. To tho  short end of the lath the line is'attached, j '  The moment the bait is seized by  'the fish, the other end of the lath  flies upright, and remains so as long  as the fish pulls', thus notifying the  fisherman to secure his prize. When  thero are some" fifty to a hundred  lines, and the fish .are biting freely,  it is exciting enough sport to rush  from one cmivcring signal to another, for, perhaps, there are four  or six in the air at the same time.  Another plan for taking these fish\  in winter is resorted to by the Indians in parts of the Great Lake region. This is the method of spearing  ..through the ice from under a tepee  or temporary shanty, erected over  the hole in the ice.  A" decoy minnow' is kept in motion  in the water until the fish is enticed  into sight, immediately under the'  opening. cutt in*.the ice. Then the  cruel Indian-weapon descends and  fastens itself h_7the" flesh of -the  writhing dore.  When live minnows cannot be obtained, pieces of ouitouche, as the  French-Canadians call the chub, and  ev;en small lumps of pork furnish  good bait for the pike-perch, which  at times does not object to make a  meal of the young of its own species.  Sulvelinus namaycush, or the great  lake trout, which is one of , tho  largest fish taken through the ice  by Canadian ' anglers, grows to an  enormous size in northern waters.  One was sent to Ottawa, a few years  ago, from Lake Ontario. which  weighed 53 pounds. It is found  eciually as largo in Lake St. John,  Tscholagama, .���������'.Jvjistas'sin, and nearly  all'the 'large-lakes, of the Labrador  peninsula.       .     '  By French-Canadians it is known  both as the touladi and the queue  fourchec, or forked tail trout. The  Montagnais Indians know it as koko-  'mesh, while its; scientific name of na-  maycush comics from the name applied;.to  it by the Nopigon Indians.  It is almost invariably captured in  deep, cool water, and in fact, can  survive.in no other iii the hot summer months. Even in winter it; is  found in the deepest waters of large  lakes. In the region of the Great  Lakes of the St. Lawrence system,  it is generally known as the Mackinaw trout. Though a true trout,  Roosevelt does not include the na-  maycush among the game fish of the  north. ��������� ..    \  The excellence of its flesh and the  large size attained by it, make it  much sought for by anglers,' when no  fly fishing is to be had, and by lumbermen, Indians and others in the  woods as an article of food. The  lake trout are not exactly as free  biters as the pike-perch, but they  grow very much larger. Those taken by the '.Nascapce Indians through  Ojibways  sticks in 'the      ice,  they are careful  with their 'hatchets.

Dr. Algic first appeared as on author about three yea/rs ago, when,  "Houses of Glass" was published,  and received' very favorable notices  from the keenest and ablest critics.

Looking back upon all the people that I have  known I can safely say that the number  of unhappy marriages I have personally  witnessed has been very small indeed,  said the late Sir Walter Bcsant. By far  the larger number of wives have accepted  cheerfully .he position of housekeeper  and matron/ They have kept house for  the husbands and children whose happiness is their own.  Many of them have kept house with the  earnest intention of making a house beautiful, which became a continual feast for  themselves; many'of them have,brought  art into every part of the daily life, which  has been a continual feast for themselves  as well as the other members of the  house; for all these matrons the daily  work'has been a daily delight.-, Then, as  for drudgery.and monotony, is there none  in a man's, work? ���������  Think'of the monotony and drudgery  of a city' clergyman's life; when every  day he has to tramp around the ungrateful slums.

Among the characteristics of the Japanese an American notices their love for  children. It is-doubtful if any Japanese  child ever got a whipping. An American  woman who became acquainted with a  Japanese matron noticed that she allowed her little children,to ramble through  the streets at will and one day commented on it.  "Why." said the Japanese lady, "what  harm can come of it? Our children never  quarrel, and no grown person would  harm a child," says The Youth's Companion. "'���������  ;;..'.-.. ���������.  "But," said the American, "the child  might get lost.". ��������� ,  ''That would make no trouble," was the  smiling reply.- And then she showed how  in little children's apparel there was inserted cards containing their,name and  address and explaining that should they  -stray any person finding them will first  give them a full meal and then bring  them home.

A number of Parisian financiers were  recently defrauded of a very considerable sum of money by a swindler y/ho  relied for the success of his scheme entirely upon the peculiar properties of  iodide of starch. Posing as a man of  considerable wealth, whose.money was  tied up in such a manner that be could  not realize vrithout heavy losses and  pretending te have the option of some  valuable concessions in China, he obtained, various large amounts of money  in exchange for bills dated to stand  for three months. .  ��������� No one for a moment suspected that  there was anything in the least degree  shady about the mail or his transactions, and when be made it public that  he bad been successful in selling his  Chinese concession at a Large profit his  creditors felt absolutely certain that  he would meet his bills.  To their immense surprise, however,  ���������when they came to look through their  papers to find the bills they only found  bills with blank spaces in the places  where the swindler's name should bavo  been and had actually been. They  clamored round him for an ''explanation  of the strange affair, but he denied that  he had ever given any of them bills and  defied them to sue him for repayment  of the loans, and the fact that the bills  were devoid of the swindler's signature, rendered them absolutely worthless.  The matter was put into the hands of  the police, who were able to discover  that in signing the bills the man bad  used a solution of iodide of starch,  which, when first used for writing, appears much the same as ordinary ink,  but completely disappears in the course  of-a few. weeks, and, although traces  of the chemical may subsequently be  discovered, nothing can make the writing show up again. Finding that his  victims had discovered his method, the  schemer decamped, despite the fact  that the chances of the police obtaining a conviction against him were very  remote indeed.
