By' MAJOR    ARTHUR   GRIFFITHS.  Copywright by R. F. Fenno & Co.  '���������'They couldn't take tho captain, not  by force, In broad daylight, and he  wouldn't be likely to go of his own accord."

Now, I'm  lor the shore, and I shall take Joe."  The major was away for a good hour,  Und he came back alone. He had left  Joe on the -watch, with one or two signals arranged to keep us up to the time  of day. If the yacht moved her berth,  he was to wave his cap; If she sent a  boat ashore, his handkerchief, and so  ou.  "They're   not   very   comfortable  on  ��������� board," the major said. "Got a man  ot the masthead on the lookout, and I'  fancy  lie can  see our smoke. - Their  " fires are-banked. ' Should not be surprised if they tried to run* for it after  dark. We must be on the alert, ready  to give chase, or'they may get away  tegain."  "You'll wait to take the boy off, I  bope?" I was anxious about Joe, not  .   Nvishlng he should coineto' harm.       ',  "That's all right. He understands.  Xf we have to leave in a hurry, he's to  make the best of his way back to England on his own account. I gave him  ������noney-and explained. No fear of him."  We got no sign' from him the whole  Of that afternoon and evening. The  time passed quickly enough, for the  major and  I  talked  all  the  time of  ��������� what we thought to do and how we  should do It   The boldest plan pleased  - us best, and we meant to row straight  for the yacht with all hands, picking  ���������up Joe by the way, board her and trust  ;. to luck' and bounce for the rest. ���������  Night came  about 8 o'clock,    dark  ��������� and starless.    It was best to get to  ' work right away, and we were to start  about 9. But a little before that we  beard shots and the noise of a rumpus,  faint, but distinct, in the distant.* Something was up, certain sure, and in the  direction of the bay, for the sounds  came from the 3*acht.  "Better' not poke our noses into any  row, not till we're driven to it," the  major' said . quietly. "The night's  ���������young-yet. We've got it all before  us," ;' ,     _   -  So' we waited half an hour, and  "were on the point "of starting out on  au expedition when we heard a sound  of oars approaching'  What could it mean?  Thou came a low "Hello! Jacob  Silverton ahoy!" in Joe's voice, and he  was soon alongside, in a boat that belonged to the Fleur-de-Lis. ��������� He said  bo; anyway, and we were bound to believe him, although It was a confoundedly queer story.  While he waited among the rocks he  Btill kept hla lookout on the yacht. Although it had fallen dark, he could  make out her hull on the water plainly;  there were lights, too, aboard, with  srreaks and reflections strong enough  to show up parts of her.  Suddenly he saw a figure dropping out  of the stern Into the yacht's dingey,  which -Heemed to have been put there  ou-purpose, -and which, anyway, was  quickly cast adrift, for it floated slowly, and silently away. The tide waa  making Into the bay, and she must  iiave been caught on the current, which  carried her inshore. Half way to the  iand the figure, which had no doubt  been crouching, in the bottom, out of  ?ight. got up pu .to the thwarts a������d  began pulling Rke mad.'  Joe soon made up his mind. He  must know more about this boat aud  the man in It: so he got up on to the  top of the rocks, where there was a  better surface, and ran all be knew to  the head of the bay, ' following the  sound of the oars aud getting a squint  now aud again of the black smudge of  the dingey. He came upon it at last,  high and dry on the shore.  But the man was gone.  Joe was a smart nipper; he knew  What he had  to do, and that waa to  pulled out to the sea, coasting the far  side and giving the yacht a wide berth.  When almost off it, a fierce row broke  out aboard. . Six shooters were let off,  several shots.- pretty quickly  followed  by yells and curses.   Joe saw that the  disturbance was heard on shore; lights  began  to dance about In  the village,  and i he alarm was given.  "They'll soon have the gendarmes on  hfir  hacks.    Now's  our time.     We'd  ::c the dingey back; it will be an ex-  *i'   for getting on  board,"  said  the  :<>r.   ."Sham's   the   word,   skipper.  Man  the   boat,   every   soul   you   can  spare, cast loose and give way."  A shore boat was already alongside  when we got to the yacht; it had  brought the authorities, for when we  hailed the answer came in French' to  keep off, that the police were in charge,  and if we had anything to say It must,  be by daylight.   ' '  "Anyway, we'd better bring the tug  into tlie bay and lie close handy  against the morning." I suggested,'and  the advice was considered good, although, the skipper did not'much like  the job of enteriug a strange place in  the dead of night. '  There were more difficulties made  next, day, and it was quite' late before  Stlie major and I set foot on the Fleur-  de-Lis. Some more big French toads  had come off from shore���������a magistrate,  one - or two doctors, and ah officer of  gendarmes���������and they had ' begun ' a  "verbal ��������� process," as It is called; for  there had been wounding and attempted murder, so they said, on board the  yacht.  The long and the short of It was,  that the rogues had fallen out among  themselves;, with good reason. ,too,  from the point of view of' some of  them. " McQuahe, the colonel ' from  Klondike, had fallen out with5Lawford  for assisting our captain to escape  from the yacht, and loosed- off at him  directly Wood was missed. He was a  quick shooter and had pretty well filled  Lawford up with lead, so full that it  might go hard with him.  But, at his owu request, they let  Major Thornhill have some talk with  him, in which a little light was thrown  on recent proceedings. William' Wood  has. been brought thus far in the Fleur-  de-Lis, a close prisoner, but by Law-  ford's help had broken out and got to  shore ,in the dingey. He. of course,  was the' man Joo had seen.  Questioned as to the' confidential  papers, and whether they were on  board. Lawford shook his head.  "The " duke" has stuck to them.  There's,money In them, a big pile, aud  he^'s crossing the pond by tomorrow's  mail to sell them to Uncle Sam. Guess  you won't overtake him, and if you try  to stop him on lauding he'll have the  American government on his side.  They're .hungering for those papers,  you bet."  ,.-"You   are "positive   they    are   not  here?" Insisted Thornhill.  "Don't I tell you? I'm likely to get  nothing more from this crowd except  my' death, and it's to my advantage to  serve the other side. If you want those  papers, you must look for them on the  Chattahoochee, and she leaves Southampton tomorrow (Sunday) morning."  It was now only the afternoon of  Saturday, and we might have done It  well starting back full steam ahead at  once. But French police and French  lawyers are a sight slower aud more  interfering than the British, and they  wanted all of us to sign a new "verbal  process" all about ourselves. The formalities were not completed by Sunday morning, and by the time we were  ready to start for J2*ngland the Chatta-  hochee must have already left the  Solent.  We made, therefore, for Weymouth."  the nearest point, and landed late that  night. Thence the major and I took  the enrs for London, neither of us remarkably happy, for the whole blooming business was more or less of a  fizzle.  ZEB WHITE'S TALES.

I at last found myself oh a narrow-bed. probably a cabin;  berth. The1 motion, the noises, the  odors around, soon satisfied me that  I was on shipboard and at sea. I  must have been in a state of semi-  stupor, the result of ill usage and want  of food, for I only roused myself with  difficulty on hearing my name called  aloud. I realized then that my bonds  had beau cast loose; there was no gag  iu my mouth; 1 was so far free that  I could use my limbs and speak if I  ���������choose. 1 was lr a small cabin, ouly  dimly lighted through the closed port;  but it was sfill daylight, and from the  wash, against tbe side 1 knew that the  craft, whatever it might be, was*, in  the open sea.

Two stood over me, oue of whom I  recognized as Lawford. the American,  and when 1 saw his face 1 realized how  deep laid was the plot against me. Behind was a third, a coffee colored  negro, who took no part in the proceedings, except to show his white  teeth in a truculent grin from time to  time when reference was made to him.  The spokesman was a tall, thin, lantern jawed man, with a goatee beard  ind a big slouch hat. His accent was  strongly corroborative of the laud he  nailed from.  (To be Continued.)

When I  heard the news. I told it to the old  woman and said:  v " 'Waal, what am I gwihe to do about  it? I've either got to hunt fur a cave  and hole myself up or go down to  Nashville.'  " 'Yo'll go to Nashville,' says she.  <   "'And what'll yo' do?'  " Til go with yo'. I've bin thinkin'  this thing over, Zeb.

I dou't know how  yo' ar' gwine to do it, but as Providence has helped yo' out when yo' was  tackled by b'ars and wildcats and roar-  In' bulls it will help yo' out now. WThen  we once git down thar, Providence will  p'intthe way, .and we will toiler.'  "I felt purty skeery about it." said  Zeb, "but the old woman talked so bold  <��������� that I made up my mind to give It a  try. Heaps of - critters come around  and incouraged 'me and offered to lend  me money, but I didn't borrow a dollar.  Coons and possums was plentiful that  fall, and I sold 'nuff pelts to pay our  railroad fare down to Nashville. ��������� We  didn't hev very good clothes, but when  'I spoke to the old woman about it she  said:  " 'Zeb. we ar' jest poor and honest  people. We ain't gwine down to Nashville to swell around, but to be very  humble and tp, do the best we kirn  We'll jest put on our Sunday clothes  and let.it go at that. If anybody don't  like our looks, they kin look the t'other  way.'  "Waal, we started off one day and  got aboard of the railroad kyars. I  was a leetle narvous, arid the did woman braced her feet and hung on  with her hands, but we got along without any calamity. In about an hour,  when she dared to open her eyes and  vdraw her breath, she says to me:  " 'Zeb, how many houses hev yo'  seen since we left home?'  ���������'.'More'n a hundred,' says I.  " 'And how many people?'  " 'More'n a thousand.'  ���������" 'Shoo!' Then we must hev got clear  around the world and back home ag'in.'  "When we got down to Nashville,  thar was so many people and so many  houses and such a movin' around that  I got the old woman behind me and  prepared to light to the death, but not  n critter laid hands on us. Some of 'em  laughed at my cowhide boots and some  of 'em grinned at the old woman's poke  bonnet but everything was good na-  tured. We went to a tavern to get  board, and when the old woman sees  the carpets on tlie floors, the stuft  cheers stanclln' around and the lookin'  glasses as big as a tablecloth she turns  pale and puts her arms around me and  says:  "'Zeb, I kin now see why thar ar' so  many sinners in this world.

"Thar was'a good deal of winkin' and  smilin' around that tavern." said' Zeb.  "and I was skeari and mad and narvous all the time, but I  hung on and  said words to brace the old woman up.  At the end of three days the legislachur opened, and I had to go up to the  statehouse.,    Lordy,   stranger,   but   I'd  rather tackled three old b'ars to once.

I went into the state-  house  with ��������� the ,crowd,'  and  I'd  just ���������  found   a   seat   when ' a   feller   cornea  ��������� round and says:  ", 'Excuse me. but ain't that a rifle  yo've got thar?'  " 'She be,' says I. 'It's a rifle which  has'killed mo' b'ars and wildcats than  yo' could count In an hour, and Bhe's  ���������till ready fur the next varmint.'  ���������  "'But yo' i can't" bring no ' deadly,,  weeplns In yere,' he goes on.

DOLBY had been down to  the postoflice' after supper,  and upon returning" ho  found Mrs. Dolby seated bu  the piazza with her spectaiwus on and  a grim look around, her mouth'. He  tender heartedly brushed a bug away  that he might not crush it and sat  down, with a sigh, and after a long  look-at him over her glasses Mrs; Dol-  ,'by said:  "Zadok Dolby, I've "got a few words  to say to you. and you know I'm a woman who talks right out when she has  'STAND rN   IN-mONT OV A DOT OF CIBCTM  eiCTuu's.'.' ''  anything to say. You are a deacon in  the church, but deacons, want talkin'  to now and then as well as,other folks.  Three or four mornin'ss ago you woke"  up and found a hog in the garden. You  jumped for a club and ran him four  cimos about the place, and just as he  went through a hole in the fence you  brought him a whack and said some-  thin' to-yourself. *��������� What it was I dun-  no, but that hog turned around and  W looked, at you'in  amazement,l ahd'I'  liea'rd "a  boy   laiigh  out 'and  clap  his  'hands.

'  "Mr.   Dolby   hitched   about   uneasily  and pulled at the leaves of the Virginia- creeper running up beside him.  but  did  not defend  himself.    He  was  allowed to have three minutes to do it  in,  and  then Mrs. Dolby  set her foot  ,������to trotting and went on:  , "One afternoon  last  week   you  was  saunteriu' about the  back  yard  with  . your-hands behind you and a contented  'look  on  your  face.    .1  was   lookin'  at  you and thinkin' what a good man you  was when yon stepped on a blade of a  hoe and the handle (lew up and fetched,  you a  whack on the  head.    You rubbed  the  spot  gave  one   look  around,  and then-you kicked in the head of the  old vinegar .barrel and said somethin'  as many as five times over.    I couldn't  catch the words, but my blood run cold  for' the  next  hour.     Ever  since  then  I've been (,askin'  myself  if  I'm   livin'  with a man who may begin to chaw  terbackcr   and   bet   on   elections   any  ' mornin' in the year.   Only last night I  dreamed  you  had  been   churched   for  ..'swearin'cand that we was dividin' up  tlie things and I was goin' home."  Mr. Dolby started to sigh, but saw  two grasshoppers engaged in deadly  combat on the ground, and checked it  to watch the struggle. He was mentally putting up a'plunk that the cock  eyed hopper would win over the old  baldhoad when Mrs. Dolby, put on a  more severe look and continued:  "I'm   no   hand   to   bring   up   things.  Zadok, as .yon know., but I'm a truthful  person  and  don't  beat  about the  bush.   You had never been to a circus  when we got married, and you  have  never been to one since.  You alius said  that  Satan and  tlie circus  was twin  brother's.   1 know they have been.post-  in' up bills for a "circus that's comin' to  .town in two weeks, but I've been careful not to look at 'em.   I've felt it my  duty  as your  wife to  turn   my 'head  away when I past-ed the pictur's. and if  there had been any feel in' that I'd like  ���������to  see  the elephant   I've  come  home  and washed my  moult; out with pepper sass.    Yes.' I've, done all this, Zadok. but how is it with you?   It wasn't  three days ago that Mrs. Graham saw  you -staridin' in front of a lot of circus  pictur's, and you was so wrapped up in  'em that you didn't hear her speak to  you.    She said  she'd  bet you'd  sneak  off to the-performance at night if you  wasn't   afraid   everybody   would   see  you.   She didn't tell it to be mean, but  she thought it  was  her  duty.    When  (x  deacon  begins to go down  hill, his  wife, had better- look out.   He's liable  to murder her any day.   Zadok, it" Satan has got hold of you I want to know  it.   I want to help you to wra.ssle with  him.    Have  you   a   fceiin'   that  you'd  like to go to the circus?"  The grasshopper tight was ended by  this time, with cockeye as victor, and  Mr. Dolby bad been asked a straight  question, ne didn't answer, however.  There was a wistful look'on his face,  and the memory of those pictures rose  up before him. but he sighed softly aud  wondered if,the hen that was trying  to crowd under the gate would accomplish the/feat.  /"And what did my brother Moses  have to tell me-three or four days  :igo?V asked Mrs. Dolby as a touch, of  pathos came to her tone. "Moses is no  hand to tell things. When his'cow  (lied two  years ago.   ho  never  said a  word about it for weeks. He didn't  '���������ell this to iik lo i.-ake trouble between  us, but he thought I ought tb.be ready  if a calamity was cpmin'. lie was go-  in' past the baseball grounds one day  last week, and "there was a game on.

The players yell and whoop and  swear and drink beer, and sometimes  the game ends in a light. , Moses didn't  think of goin' in, especially as the price  , was two shillings admittance,' and he  was turnin' . away from temptation  when be saw you.   You was stand in'  ���������tip to the fence anf" '.ookiiv* through a  Knot note, ana ne called your name seven times .without your hearin' him.  "Moses almost'cried when he told mo  of'it. He said the next thing would lie  a. boss race unless you got hold of  yourself, and the next after that would  be a grand crash. You can't.go on this  way,���������'Zadok���������you can't do it. I ain't  saj'in',you've come,to any great harm  yet, though I notice you'pick out the  shortest chapters in the"Bible for family prayers. 'Do you realize that Satan  is after you?"  The' hen had got under the gate aud  gone,' but Miv Dolby had' become interested iu two hogs in the street. Both  wanted tlie same mudholo for a ��������� bed,  and a fight was imminent to see which'  should have possession. Mr. Dolby's  sympathies were with'the spotted hog,  and he took no heed of the woman behind hi_u., She didn't seem to expect  him to, but after a couple of minutes  feelingly observed:'  "There's one thing more. Zadok, and  I'm bound to tell you of it.   One even-  in'   last  week  when you   was   milkin'  the cow and 1 was in the barn lookin'  for eggs  I   heard somethin'. go  'spat,'  arid I looked'but to find you in a heap  on the ground.    The' cow, had ' kicked  you over.    You got up and grabbed a  piece of fence rail, and'you lambasted  her   nine   times',   and  every  time  you  lambasted yon jumped out a word:    I  don't khow> what it was, as I,had my  ears" stopped up, but,I know it wasn't  'sugar.''   You-was still,.mad when you  come into  the house, and you  kicked  tho cat and clicked your teeth togeth-,  er.    Zadok Dolby, the time has come  when 1 must know what-you mean to  do.    Are you goin' to keep right on this  way and bring up in the fire and brimstone at last or are,-you goin' to stop  where you are and become a livin' example of goodness again?    I want a  plain answer.'' ,  . She didn't get it, however. The hog-  fight was on, and Mr. Dolby was  mentally cheering the spotted one to  victory, and he didn't even hear the  question. The scrap lasted about three  minutes, with victory perching on the  banner of the better porker, and when  it was concluded Mr. Dolby arose with  ������ yawn, brushed a fly off his nose and  sauntered out into the garden to see  how   the   tomato   plants   were   corn-  M.

B. Lewis.] .  IT was a morning of glad sunshine  and soft skies and singing birds,  but  Mr.   Bowser  got  up   feeling  logy.    At breakfast' he had little  appetite, and he dragged his legs as be  went up stairs, and Mrs. Bowser final  ,ly said:  "I think you ought to let up on smoking for a week or so and get tbe nice*  tine out of your system."  ."What, has'smoking to do with it?'  he at once demanded.  "I think you smoke t^o much. It  may be, however, that you have grown  too fat again."  "Too fat again I When was I ever too  fat before?   There Isn't an ounce of ex-  EE TjOOKKD AT HIS "TONGUE TS THE G"_A3S.  tra fat on me, and ryou know it. You  seem to want to pick a fuss this morning."  '���������"I don't wish that, of course, but,if I  were you I'd get a tonic 'or "something.  I'm quite sure, your blood is out of order."  Mr. Bowser looked at his tongue in  the glass over the mantel, dallied with  a pimple on bis chin and finally turned  and observed:- - -    - -      -���������  "What's the matter -with me is that'  JBpring(-is here, and I need an'old fashioned tonic made of roots., It's worth  forty times anything a doctor.can prescribe: I used to always-dig the roots  ' for mother when I was a' hoy. She  made a son of,beer of it, and it was  the greatest thing cfor the' blood you  ever saw." ���������'__"  "Well, you might engage a farmer to  dig you some roots," suggested Mrs.  Bowser, though feeling certain in advance of his answer.  "I think I see myself! I don't care to  die of poison just yet. What 1 propose  to do is to take the day' off and go out  after my own roots. L wart dandelion,  snrsa pari 11a, sassafras, sweet sicily.  spicebush and several other kinds, and  the walk will also do me good. 1 can  show tbe cook how to make, a' keg of  beer, and it'll be the thing for'both of  . us."  "Very well, but of course you'll be  careful. It is many years since you  .were a boy."  "Yes, a thousand or more," be sarcastically replied after a glare at her.  "If you didn't take advantage of every  possible occasion to call'me a relic of  the Mayflower, you wouldn't be happy. However, if I don't hpppen to  know sarsaparilln from thistle I'll'take  the consequences."  Mrs. Bowser had nothing further to  say, while the cat Pat up with a solemn look on ber face, and Mr. Bowser  donned an old suit of clothes and got  a basket and a spude and started out  op bis trip. He looked quite happy as  he fairly got stnrted. and he paid "O  attention to the two or-three wicked  boys who yelled after him and wanted  to know if'he was going"out to dig for  .woodchucks. A yellow, car was soon  ppeedlog him countryw.ard. and his  logy feeling was quickly replaced by a  picnicky one. He enjoyed every moment of the run to the terminus, and  he would hove gone on looking for  bluebirds If the conductor hadn't poked  his nose In. He was a man working  for $1.CS a day and consequently had  no sentiment about bini..  "You don't expect to find clams out  this way. do you?" he asked as Mr.  Bowser got off the car:  "Who said I did?" was the reply.  "Nobody. I only judged 'en from  your lookn. You'll be disappointed!  old man. Usrd to be millions of Vm  roosting in the trees. but an epidemic  of whooping cough ciiiri^ nlony and  choked 'em to death. Von mi���������lit run  aown a   mud  turtle,   though,  if  your  wind is good."  Mr. Bowser was hopping mad in a  minute, and he put down basket and  spade with the idea of punching the  man's head. Then he suddenly realized  that it was all Mrs. Bowser's fault and  that he'd make her pay for it when he  go* home, and he picked up his utensils  and journeyed on. Spring was certainly at hand. He saw robins flitting,  -and he found mudholcs twenty feat  across. He saw lambs frisking and fell  off p. fence and split his  coat up the  back. The buds were bursting into  blossom and the meadows taking on a  vivid green, but these things were  somewhat offset by an old one horned  cow running him along the highway  for a quarter of a mile and splashing  him with mud from head to heel. It  was only after an hour's walk that Mr.  Bowser gained the primeval forest. v It  was primeval because there was as  much as three acres of it, and the  acres were under mortgage altogether  and under water to a large extent.  However, it was in the primeval forest  that he used to "dig roots when he was  a bounding boy, and lie looked around  him with expectancy. The mud dried  on his eyebrows and the water squashed out of his shoes as he searched  around, but he didn't permit those  trifling incidents to interrupt the harmony of tho occasion. It was only  when he paused before a milkweed  plant that was getting ready for a  spring boom that he began tp doubt his  knowledge of rootology. _ He was digging It"up to see whether it was sarsa-  parilla or sweet flag when the old  farmer who owned the primeval, subject to mortgage, came that way looking for a stray hog. , -  '"What ye lookin' for?" :he queried,  with suspicion in his tones.  "KOots." bruxquely replied Mr. Bow- ���������  scr���������"roots to make a spring beer for  the blood." ' ,    " "  "And   do   ye   want   milkweed    and  skunk's   cabbage  to  make  yer tonic?  Them's the only kind as grows around  'here. ' Who be ye anyhow?"  '   "My name is Bowser."  "I never heard of- it before, but I  don't like the sound of it. ' Sounds like  the name ofi,a man who'd steal hogs.  I'd'be much'obleeged to ye if ye'd root  y'erself out of this."  "I want to find some spring roots,"  protested Mr. Bowser as he choked his  anger back; "sarsaparilla. spicebush,  'sassafras and so forth. You must have  heard of root beer. Our mothers used  to make it for the blood, you know."  "Yes, I may hev," replied the farmer,  "but I've also heard of hog thieves.'  I've missed a spotted hog, and if ye've  stole him I'll foller ye to state prison."  "Say, you old pudding hea'd. do you  -mean to insult me?" "shouted the roptf  seeker as he boiled over at last.  "Git outer my woods or it'll be the  wuss for ye!!'-  "t won't do it!" '     .'  "Then I'll make ye!" -,  There was a mortal combat. The  farmer'was the oldest, and had a bow tc  his back, but Mr. Bowser-was the-fattest and had less'wind. It was an even  thing for five minutes, and then Mr.  Bowser got up and climbed the. fence  and started,for home, leaving spade and  Dsiskct and the farmer behind. He-hrd  been rolled in the soft muck. and. he  had been rolled iu the ponds of water,  and at 4 o'clock in the afternoon a'di- .  lapidated, dejected something appeared  m the front hall of' the Bowser mansion without having rung the bell.  Mrs. Bowser looked at it. and the cat  looked at it. aud while they were still  peering and wondering it suddenly uttered these words:  "Woman, your murderous plot has  been laid bare in all its wickedness,  and you and I will have a settlement  this evening!"  Then it dragged itself up stairs, and  the cat winked at Mrs. Bowser and  Mrs. Bowser smiled in return.  M. QUAD.  Unnnnpeotlnsr  Victim.

S. McClure Company  ������������������������o*o*o*o^o^o*o4o#o4o*o*  ' Jeremiah Mead, farmer, money lend-'  er, bargain driver and tight fisted'  citizen of Blair county, had earned- the  name of a hard man. His wife .was  submissive to servility. His son George,  their only child, had grown up in fear  of him and after reaching his majority  still worked ou without wages. ���������'  Jeremiah had forclosed mortgages  without mercy, he had lent money at  usurious interest, and no one could remember a neighborly act on his part.  Uncle Jerry, as he was called, knew  that he was in' bad odor all over tho  county, but he rather gloried in it.     ,  it was seldom that the son George  had a dollar of his own or a day's vaca-,  tion, but he made few complaints, no  matter what' he thought of the situation. ��������� Having none,, of the father's  characteristics, he was a general favorite,  as  far as  people  knew   him.     At  ON'E    MOVE'OF    HIS    HAND    WOULD   HAVE  ��������� IlESUT/rED   IN  A  THOUSAND  STINGS.  the age of twenty-one he had never  spoken to five members of,the opposite  sex and was as bashful as a girl of  sixteen.  - .-. -  .  ��������� Tho crisis of bis young life occurred  one day when, driving sheep over to  the Rawsonville market, he passed the  farmhouse of the Widow Blair. He  was just in time to assist the hired  man, the widow and her daughter Polly to extinguish a fire in the barn. Although he hurried on as soon as possible, he had left his heart behind with  Polly.     ,  Nothing .was said about bis adventure when he returned home, and bashful as he was he had managed to see  Polly half a dozen times and excite her  interest before the news reached the father's ears. After a little reflection  Uncle Jerry went to the field' where  George was hoeing potatoes.  "Look here, George. It's about time  you got married. The house is big  enough for another . family, nnd of  course you have no thoughts of leaving  borne. I guess you'd better shine up  to Jim Taylor's gal. She ain't much  on looks, as I'll allow, but I've heard  she was a great worker. There's going to be a circus in Rawsonville next  week, and I don't mind giving you a  dollar to take her along."  ' George managed to reply that' he  didn't think he'd get, married for  awhile yet  "Well, there's no hurry, of course,  but lemme tell you something. I've  heard that you was casting sheep's  eyes toward the Widder Blair's. You  might as well quit that. I'd rather see  you In your grave than married into  that family."  "Isn't the widow a nice woman?"  asked George. ���������   *  "No, sir, she ain't!" decisively replied the father. "I had two lawsuits  with her about ten years ago, and she  beat me iu both. I'd also have got the  prize oil hogs at the county fair last  year if she hadn't had six of bers there.  She's the last woman on earth I want  related to me. Better go over to,Taylor's tonight and ask Sarah to go to  the circus with you."  But George didn't, and a month later  he almost paralyzed his father by saying:  "Dad, I have asked Polly Blair to  marry me, and she lias consented."  "Jerusha, but you don't mean It!"  shouted the father as he jumped clear  off the ground.  "I do?' was the quiet reply.  "But you can't marry her, George.  1 forbid' you to. I'll never give my  consent to any such thing. If you  want to marry, go over and ask Sarah  Taylor to have you."  "I'll never do it!"  There was open rebellion at last, the  first time the son had ever questioned  parental authority. Uncle Jerry's first  thought was to lock the boy up in the  smokehouse, the next to threaten to  disinherit him. Then his shrewdness  came to his aid. and he said:  "We won't say no more about It just  now, but when.we come to have a talk  1 guess we can agree."  Three days later he drove up to the  Widow Blair's." He Intended to pitch  In so vigorously, that the widow and  her daughter would order him off the  place and his son after him. 'As he  drove up he saw the widow out in the  orchard and heard her drumming on a  tin pan. . He turned in .that direction.  He was thinkiug of bow he should  open the matter when something buzzed .past his ear, and ten seconds later  he found his head in a circling cloud  of bees. One of the widow's hives was  swarming. No matter whether the  bees took him for a' rosebush or a sunflower, they began settling down on  his head and shoulders. In five minutes he was almost hidden from sight'  and perfectly, helpless. One move of  his hand would' have resulted in a  thousand stings.  "Well. Uncle Jerry." said the widow  as she'carefully,advanced, "I was rather expecting you. I am glad you',ve  come. .1 suppose you. want to talk  about'George and Polly getting'married?" ' ,  '  "Y-yes." softly replied.the caller. "I  came to say that I have told George it  mustn't'be." ���������    ���������  "Oh, you ..did! Well, I quite agree  with you, arid you can go back home."  ,"But how can .1 go?"  "Any way'you wish. If' you carry  the bees , home, I- hope .you'll bring  them back tomorrow." .   ,.  "But I can't do it!" he wailed. "I  dasu't move a foot. If,'the bees" get  mad,' I'm a dead man!"   r    ''' ;  ���������"Yes, to be sure,  but I've got other  work   on   hand.     I   don't think "you'll'  have to stand here over a week before'  the bees will find the new.hive."  "Lord, widder, but you ,won't leave  me in this fix! You couldn't have the  heart to do it!"'    ��������� "' ���������        \  "Oh, it's no use to talk about hearts!'*  she replied. "George and Polly- have  both got hearts; but it's nothing to us.  I wonder just how many' bees are  hanging to your right ear!"  "Millions,"   widder,     millions,"      be-  hoarsely     whispered,     "and     millions  more, to  my   hat .and   hair and  chin!  Can't they be scraped off?" ".   'l  .  "Not today,' Uncle Jerry, i hear you  don't like me."  .-.st'But  I  do.    You   beat,me-in them  lawsuits, but you ought to. 1 guess."  "But you don't like" Polly."  "Yes, I do.;" Polly is the nicest girl1  in all this county." ^  "She   is" that,   but   bow   you   move  about!. You  must stand -as" steady as  a tree.    Yes. Polly is a nice girl."  ��������� "But do������ something'for me!"  he entreated.  "How can I? You don't like,me, and  you don't want George and Polly to  marry, and"���������  "Widder Blair," came the whispered  words, from amid the bees, VI like you.  I like Polly."  "And George?"  ' "He may marry Polly tomorr^r.  Hang it. only get these bees off'n me,  and George and me will marry the hull  caboodle of you before'sundown!"  Uncle Jerry's word was considered  as good as his1 bond, and Half an hour  later, by careful manipulation, the bees  were hived and he was" free to' go.  Pale faced and weak in the knees, be  drove into the barnyard, calling to his  son:   .- .    .  "George go over to the Widder  Blair's^ tonight and ask Polly if she'll  be ready to marry you a week from  today!"   An Obi I Kins Caller.  When M. Clemenceau was In the  French chamber of deputies, he became for some reason the idol of the  workingman, but his popularity, according to the course of nature, brought  its penalties. He was besieged by all  sorts of people, who came merely to  ask questions, and sometimes they  were questions of the. most trivial sort.  He was originally a doctor and used  to give advice for nothing at,certain  hours of the day. One morninga workingman entered his room, arid Clemenceau said without looking up from his  writing: I-  "Take off your coat and shirt I 11  attend to you directly."  Three minutes later he found tho  man had stripped to the waist  "There is nothing the matter with  you." said the doctor when be had  made an examination.  "I   know  there  isn't!"  returned  the  man.  "Then what did you come for?"      !  "To consult you on a political question."  "But what did you strip for?"  "1 thought you wanted an illustration of the emaciated body of the man  who lives by the sweat of his brow."  The political, question remained unanswered. M. Clemenceau was too exasperated to do more than tell tbe man  to dress and go home.   A Homed Man.

"It's a two hour, express; gets thereat 1:40"  "Goodness me!    ! don't likp to travel  so Cast.    I'm afraid of accidents."   .  "No danger at all.  madam.  1  assure-  you."
