No ne���������w cases of diphtheria have  developed since , Mr Scavardo's  child, and it is hoped the evil ia  checked. The schools opened, again  Monday���������too soon by far. We had  hoped the Trustees would have re-,  alized this!        '    .  Young S.' Bennie was brought  home from No. r 4 slope Thursday  nignt suffering from having several'  ribs broken by being squeezed be-  tv\ een a coal box aud a post. He is  improving there not being any in-  ���������ternal injury.  Poor littlo Pete Scavardo died  suddenly Monday at noon. He had  been suffering from diphtheria, and  wa* supposed to be out of danger,  but some one of the many complications attendant on this dread  disease set in, and took the little  fellow off.  Monday at noon, tho church and  fire bells gave au alarm of fire.  This was seen to be in the house  occupied by. Mr F. Nunns, and although he wab close at hand, so  fierce was the blaze that it waaonly  with the greatest difficulty that he  managed' to save his camera and  one or two little trinkets. The hose  reel was soon to hand, and the  blaze quickly extinguished.' The  loss to Mr Nunns will be irreparable, as ���������-many valuable books, besides family treasures, were con  surged. -Tue fire is supposed _ to  have startod ' b.e; weeri the ceiling  and the roof, probably.'���������originating  froin some unknown defect in the  brick, and must have been smouldering for a little time before being  discovered, as the whole place was  quickly ablaze after this.  3'  ,Pr  | ���������- n  I-I  i ^  ���������r r  i    ?  ��������� ! .

(  14''  W������  A Tale of the Cattle Thieves of Agua  CalJctite.  ^Copyright,   19G0   by  W.   LcC Beard.  ' 'What the foreman said was perfectly  true I fully realized that now^and at  once gave orders to round up the cattle.  The river had fallen considerably, and it  was decided that we sbculd move the  camp and gather the cattle at the nearest ford, 12 miles below. In this way it  -was just possible tliat, if the river'al:  lowed us, we might get across and away  ���������before tbere was an opportunity for  ���������trouble.  All of our men were at supper that  night, and all of them, with the exception,of Hollis, we're trustworthy. The  ���������others had been weeded out days before.'  As the hasty meal was finished the foreman stood up and made a little speech  ' to the men.    It was very short.  ''Boys, "he said. "I' reckon you all  ������������������knows what yen got ter do. New you  wanter saddle up an doit jus' as quick  ���������as you know how. There'll ,be trouble  ���������else at buth ends erthe line. Now's the  -time ter start. "  The boys saddled and. started.' In a  few .minutes, except for the Ballet  <3irl. who was hurriedly, striking camp,  ���������there was not a human,being in sight.  Driving the cpare horses ahead of, me,  J went directly to our new camping  place, gathering by the way what few  ���������cattle I could get. I was the first" to arrive at the ford. I built a fire to guide  the others to this point and sat down,  to keep it going until the cook could  come up and .relieve me.  Pew of   the cattle   bad   strayed far  JEollowed by a shouting cowboy or two,'  if we had not returned, to send a search  party. But I cculd not see that we were  in any danger.  "Danger?" responded' the foreman  obstinately. "Well, I reckon maybe 1  know some better, than you do. If you  ain!t back when I said, we'll all be a  search party. I'm boss when yon ain't  here. I'm a-gonter hoi' all the boys as  they come in an give/em a night's rest.  We c'n start work in the mornin one  ,way er another���������an hour after sun up.  Hoi' on a niinute. "  He ran to the wagon and took ont a'  7ifle. which he fastened to my saddle.  "Take this along   Maybe yon'11 want  ,it," he said, shoving a handful'of  cartridges into   my pocket.    "Here comes  Lee."  As he spoke the cowboy, freshly  mounted, came cantering up, and we  started off.  "You needn't'be afraid of ns hurtin  no innercent men, " the foreman called  after, us reassuringly. ".We wouldn't  ,do that." He waited tin'til we were  some distance away, and then, making  a speaking trumpet of his hands, he  bawled:.  "In���������Agria Caliente there���������ain't���������  no���������innercent���������rnenl"  Energy will do anything that, can  be done in this world; and ho talents,'no circumstances, no 'opportunities, will make a two-legged .animal  a  man ' "without  it.���������Goethe.

Then'the cook  ,     -wagon drew  up at   the fire, which was  'utilised by the Ballet Girl for the manufacture and maintenance of a huge pot  -of  coffee, kept   for  the   benefit   of  all  ������������������comers.  Thero was no time to stop and  -eat.  The men   came and went   and   came  -again, all of  them, except  Spider   and  ' -Hollis.    I;bad not seen them since supper     I began  to get very uneasy about  'topuler and made   inquiries  a& lue li.eij  .���������came in    Cappy Lee. it seemed, was the  last   to  see them.    It was early in tiie  ���������evening.  Spider was spurring along directly 'in   Hollis' 'wake  and    both   of  '-them "heading  for  Agua Caliente.    It  '���������was long past   midnight when Lee   in-  :������oi'K!ed   me of   this.    Calling  the fore-  iinan, I   hurriedly told   him   about Spi-  >   -der's absence and in whose company ha  was  last   seen.    I aLo told   him that 1  "was very much   afraid that  something  ,had happened to the boy and that I intended to start out at once  in search of  biin.  "Ridin jealous er Hollis, Is'pose, like  Jbe   always   does."   said   the   foreman  .���������"Weil. 1   reckon you'd better go." he  '���������went   on,   afrer    thinking   a   moment  "Oughtn't ter go alone, though" ���������  "He won't go   alone, you   bet yon,'  'Lee interrupted.    ".Ins" wait till I saddle up   a   fresh   horse  an  get   my rifle  outer the wagon.   I won't be long."  "What about yer workV" asked tha  -.foreman reprovingly.  "Have ter get 'long without me the  best it kin. I reckon." responded Lee as  he walked away to make his preparations. The foreman made a quick stride  ufter him and then stopped.  "He hadn't no   business ter talk like  that, but 1 reckon he's right.. He ought  -ter go. an maybe I'd done the same, if 1  was him.   Look here.   Don't yon get in-  ,'ter no fights you c'n help.   If yon don't  come back by an   hour after sun up, er  if ther\s anything ben done terthatther  kid. I'll let tlie cattle   go. an   I'll   take  every one  er.the   boys���������I'll head   'em  -myself���������an I'll burn Agua  Caliente an  ������������������shoot every man ther is in the place. "  I laughed.  "You needn't ter laugh," cried the  foreman indignantly. "You know .1  don't talk 'less I mean it. If me an.the  boys can live ter do it. I'll do every  las' thing I said."  At first I had thought that be was  1 joking, but it was as he said. He meant  'every word. Of course I would not for  .a moment consent to such a plan as  'that he proposed, one that might involve the killing of men who had not  ���������done or intended us any barm. I gave  ���������the foreman orders to stop where he  vwas until the following noon, and then, I  *   CHAPTER  IV.,  EN" "WHICH THE CATTLE ARE STAMPEDED BY  LOBENA'S GANG.  I had not an idea as to Spider's probable whereabouts.    The'desert was  so  "very large and Spider so very minute a  ' speck upon its surface that it struck me  after, we had-star ted out that our quest  was  a "singularly   hopeless one.    Lee.  however, differed from me..  '    "I'don't rsee no, trouble in   knowin  where ter go. V he said.    "Pug  Hollis,  he'll1" be  prntty sure ter  strike to'rds  Agua Caliente, an   Spider'll sure be in  his-wake.    All we  got ter do is ter go'  ter  Agua .Caliente. too:   that's all.,   If  anything's ���������wrong an that 'kid's alive,  he'll   be makin some noise 'er other ter  let us  know.  '.He's  a star at makin a  noise. Spider is.  It's right in his line. "  ���������  By this time we were well away from  the camp, out of sight of the fire.    But  for  the   pole /star   that hung burning  brightly over   our   heads   I would  not  have had the faintest notion of   the direction in which we were   going.1   But  Lee, with the plainsman's unerring in  stinct,   loped   steadily   along owithout  ever raising his leyes.    Lee was   not   a  talkative person.'   The only sound that  broke the oppressive ' stillness was  the  dismal  yelp  of  a'   distant ^coyote,  the  smothered (pa'd' of   the "hoofs  of ,our  mounts  as. they'fell  on the soft'sand  and the regular click of the spur-chains  against. our   b.ea'vy - wooden   stirrups.  Only once did Lee speak.'    .<    .-  "Moon'scomin up.'.See? That's fine  C'n. tell what we're doin now." He  pointed to a silvery sheen on the dark  blue horizon, intofwhich a few minutes  later the full moon climbed, streaking  the rolling surface of the"1 desert with  bright light and blackest shadow and  silvering the stately forms of the tree  cactus that studded thetdesert thickly  A faint white line a rnile ahead marked  the course of a trail, toward which, by  tacit consent, we turned our hoises  Suddenly Lee held up his hand as a  eignal that I should listen. At first 1  could hear nothing. Then, sounding  taint in the distance, there came three  pops of a pistol. ������  "That's him���������somebody what wants  help, anyhow," called Lee. "Over be-  yon' the rise, thar, they are. We c'n see  from the top. Le's hustle���������quickl"  Putting'spurs to our horses, we soon  were climbing a long, stony ridge that  for miles divided the plain.' concealing,  one half from the'other.

The'"worcIs met with instaut approval  from his indignant fello-vy townsmen,  who had assembled in the postoffice of  the,,southern village to explain matters  to the inspector sent by the government. Every man in the room was  armed, and . each face, was set and  ���������stern as Terril, the inspector, appeared  in the doorway.  1 Terril was old in the service, though  fairly young in years,- and bad been  sent to the defiant little town because  of his wide experience." 'He had tried  ,to refuse,, the case', though he did not  deem'it necessary to confide his reason  to his superior officer. Inopportunely,  enough, he was ordered to leave by a.  morning train, whereas lie had intended to call on the Girl that1 evening. -She  was a visitor in Washington, and he  feared she, would be gone-before'he re-"  turned.

En route he drafted his report and wound up with, '.'In view of  the foregoing facts and circumstances  I have .the ,,honor to recommend that  the postotUce at Itattloiown be discontinued for an 'indefinite period., dependent upon'the behavior of the citizens of the town."'  When Terril reached his hotelo after  a' three .days' absence  from  Washing-,  ton,' he found a letter, the handwriting  of 'which made' his heart beat fasten  His face was a study as he read:  r My Dear Mr. Terril���������I left Washington  unexpectedly the same day you did,  thoug-h 'by the afternoon train.

One mouse by following that course  attained to the desired goal,, but' evidently by chance, for being startled  out of vthe tin it continued for a long  while to make futile efforts to recover  its lost position by jumping up, never  again seeking the road which had led  it before to the object of its1 desire.

Therefore here he was the next day  in Battletown in no patient,mood with  the obstreperous southern  hot  heads.  He was greeted by a babel of voices.'  ,   "We've driven that nigger out of the  state!"  "The assistant's In charge now!"  "The nigger's afraid to come back!"  "What are you going'to do about it?"  Terril stood unmoved.  "One  moment,   gentlemen,"  he  said  quietly.-   "I can't listen to you all at  once.     Besides,   there   are   too   many  young fellows here. " Suppose some of  you older men come with me into the  next room.    Then we can discuss this  ' matter   calmly   and,"   smiling,   "wTith  less noise:" <���������  "That's reasonable," said - young  John. And forthwith old'John Sylvester and four others, fathers in the community, retired with the inspector, to  convince him that there was but one  thing to do���������to appoint a white man  tn tho negro's place.  "Is there anything against the black  man's character?" asked Terril.  .-.-  "We don't concern ourselves with  the character of niggers," answered  Sjivester majestically. "Jones is a nigger, and that in itself is enough  against him."  ���������Terril, who saw that he might as  well have talked to the younger meu,  said but little until he had heard all  sides of the question. When he' returned to the main room and noted  the ..determined faces before him, he  made his decision promptly, but privately.  "It will teach them a lesson," he  thought to himself, "and, besides, I  want, to get back to Washington."  "Gentlemen," he said aloud, "this  matter cannot be^ decided at once. I  shall have to explain the situation at  headquarters. In the meantime my j  Instructions are to remove your post-  office to the county seat"  There was a look of dismay on the  faces of his hearers.  "But we'll have to go eight miles for  our mail," said one man.  "How long will it be before we have  our own office back?" asked another.  "Oh, it may not take long to decide,"  said Terril smoothly.

Presently, at the' end of a scrimmage,  while Donald was standing watching  the crowd, the Indian strode up to  him and deliberately dealt him a blow  over the head which stretched him  out.  With difficulty Donald picked himself  up and resumed the play. At the end  of the game the Indian came up to him  again and said .rather apologetically,  "I hit you." i  "So I noticed," said Donald, rubbing  his head ruefully..

This  week's study in this epistlecand the next  on the resurrection need not necessarily  break the continuity of our study of tho  acts of the apostles, for in all the Scriptures we have the things concerning Him  of whom Philip spake to the eunuch and  whom we must see,as the centfer>of evoiy  lesson.

Only as we by faith enter into His  love and purposes will we be delivered  from the works of 'darkness mentioned 'in  ,chapter,iv, 31; I Cor. vi, 9, 10; Gal. v, 19-  21.' Intemperance, as generally-understood, is one of the many works,of darkness, but the child of Godshould be^'free  from all if he would -know the joy of being a child'of the'Lord Almighty (II Cor.  ,vi, 14-18).    , ������������������ s  13, 14.'"Awake thou that sleepest and  arise from the dead 'and Christ shall give  thee light!"

This Schneider in his day had been a  mighty drinker, famous for his capaci-  ity, and carouses.  The priest was ministering to the dying man. consoling him with visions  of the paradise he would soon enter,  telling him that he would meet there  his old friends and what a joy it would  be to see them all again. -     I  '    The dying man asked feebly, "Will  Schneider be there, your reverence?"  Thinking to give, him pleasure, tho  priest replied, "Yes; Schneider will be  there."  "Ach!" said the other. "Dot is very  bad. All dose dringings und eadings  und fighdings all over again,-all dot  beer und whisky!"  "But there 'will be uo drinking in  heaven," said the priest.  "But  you  said  Schneider would be  dere."  "So he will," was the priest's reply.  "Und   dere   won't  be   no  dringings.  you   dink?     Ach!     You   don't   know  Schneider!'  Intelligence  In   Mice.

As to buying up the opportunities,  if we-had. tho zeal of unscrupulous business men, who for their own gain make  corners in even the-necessaries of-life,  how much might he accomplished in ths  serviceof Christ?

"Wherefore be ye not unwise, but  understanding what the will-of the Lord  is.", It is not the .will of God that any  should perish, for He will have all to be  saved and has made full provision for the  same (II"Pct. iii. 9; I Tim. ii, 4; John iii,  16). When sinners are saved, He desires  that they should be holy and so fully yield,  to Him that they may prove in daily life  how good and acceptable and perfect His  will is (I Thess. iv, 3; "Rom. xii, 1/2).

Wine stimulates-,,and exhilarates  unnaturally, but the Holy Spirit stimulates supernaturallj'; the one is for self,  the other for God.- There is a drunkenness that does not come from rwine, or  strong drink (Isa. xxix, 9), but is just as  much the work of the adversary. Only  that which is of God through Christ gives  light and life; all that is not of God  causes, stupor and drunkenness, and the  manifestation of the ilesh as God only can  give life, so God only can live in us the  life He desires, and He is pleased to do  this by His Spirit, therefore the necessity of being filled with, the Spirit by  whom.alone the life can be lived.   -  19.
