tho senEe was native and inborn. She
straightened. I called "Steady!" a su
perfluous noiso, however. She was
down, steady, fast and true, with pa
tient Ben's head well drawn forward at
her flank, her first grtause, well done.
The doctor flushed, but under such a
cover his shot was not effective.
On we go, two more flush wild ; we

the left, tho doctor and George to the
right, up through an old oak woods
whoso entire foundation was heavy

fine point by Jeaunette and tho left bar

While reloading up go two more; hut,
alas, the gun was open. Ben comes in
and finds my bird, which Jeaunette
could not locato.
A few yards farther and two moro

Ben have left us. Ye must search alone.

For 200 yards in any direction could
be seen this small statue of mottled

"Ah, that explains your doubts, then.

"He'd lose his breath just at critical

The Thrilling Sequel to the Hanging; of ft
"Everybody remembers when the
great Texas murderer, Dick Masters,
was hanged," said E. M. Cary of Waco,
"but the strange death of Sheriff Win
ters, who sprung the trap, has been kept
out of the papers. After Masters' body
was cut down, the county jihysician pro
nouncing the murderer dead, the sheriff
Ordered four deputies to carry tho body
to his private laboratory, where ho
used to pursue his medical experi
ments alone. He was bound to dissect
the powerful, well developed body of
Masters, so ho shut himself up with tho
corpse and went to work.
The sheriff moved about briskly,
making a great clatter with his instru
ments. Several times he went to tho
windows and peered out, but the neigh
borhood was deserted. Ho scon discov
ered that the .drop on the scaffold had
not broken Masters' neck, and the sher
iff thought that was fortunate, as ho al
ways had experimented on tho restora
tion of life whenever opportunity afford
ed. He laid down his instrunienis.and
began to try and restore life. Tho even
ing shadows drifted into night. It was
a noisy town and tho shouts and laugh

But the pleasure pcekcrs on the streets

SHORT SKETCH OF A SUCCESSFUL MAN
How He Abandoned Architecture For Story
Wrlllns The Greenwood Incident Show
That There la Sometimes Something; In
Much has beep said and written about
Thomas Hardy's work, but very little
indeed is generally known of the man
himself. An obvious reason is the nov
elist's dislike of personalities, his shrink
ing from public curiosity, and the sim
ple, serene almost mediaeval tone of
nature that dominates him.
As a young man he proposed to fol
low architecture as a profession and
studied with diligence. He went into
the office cf the well known architect,
Sir Arthur Blcmfield, A. R. A., in
London. While equipping himself for
his future career, he used his spare mo
ments in writing a novel that he called
"Desperate Remedies." This book, afi
er several refusals at last found a" pub
lisher, but it did Hardy no more gcod
than harm. Meantime, following his
architectural work, ho carried out his
Grst coinnii&uon naturally a modest
. M J It
pne, as young farcintccts aro uoc nsuauy
fptrpsted with pathedrals. Although his
maiden, effort jn. letters bad met with
comparati-y) failpre, his zeal was un
abated, fop he immediately wrote "Un
der thp Greenwood Tree,"
At the time tbjs book appeared Fred
prick Greenwood, new the distinguish
ed student of Enropeau policies, edited
Tho Cornhill Magazine. It is a habit
with Mr. Greenwood occasionally to
"prowl" about old bookstalls. Looking
over a basketful of cheap books all
thrown together, he chaeced to light
upon "Under tho Greenwood Tree."
For the sake of its name he picked it
up, paying a few .pence for it. The able
editor saw at a glance that there was
genius in that neglected and discarded
work, -and, finding out Hardy, then in
his thirty-first year, he commissioned
him to writo a novel for The CqruhilL
It was then that Hardy, forced by cir
pumstanpes as welj as ijjipejled by his
loye. for otters. abanpual architectprp,

Though he is neither listless nor lan
guid, Hardy's appearabce is that of a
man who has lately recovered from on

and his skin is sallow, speaking of sed

there is nothing in his presence that is
strong enough to intimate the quality
of his mind. The most that can be said
is that his face is exceedingly keen and
clever. His bronzed hair, now tinned

ART OF HANGING PICTURES.
Oil Paintings Should Hot lie Flaced In a
Boom With Engravings.
Only second to importance to produc
ing a fine picture is the fact that tho
work when completed should hp seen to,
an advantage on the vVaU"whrp it is
In consulting with a leading decora
tor on the subject, ho said : "In tho first
place, it may be suggested that it is not
desirable to put oil paintings in the
same room with engravings cr draw
ings in water colors, crayons or other
like materials. It is often done, fre
quently as a matter of necessity, but we
consider it, from a point of artistic
taste, a mistake.
"Again, there should be a certain
classification of subjects in the pictures
ornamenting the walls, as inattention
to this is occasionally ludicrous. Irecall
one instance where, there, was-a print of
Kubens' 'Descent From the Cross,' ancl,
hanging pn either, side of it, engravings
pf Wilkia'a pillage Festival' and Meis
gonier's 'Cavalry Charge.' Surely noth
ing could bo jno're absurd than placing
i immediately juxtaposition works in
which the motives of the designs are so
directly opposite as tho illustration of
death, a village ievel and the fierce
shock of battle.
"As a general rule, it is well to place
pictures of a certain order of design to
gether. Some works can only be seen to
advantage in a bright and others in a
subdued light, while it is equally cer
tain that many lose nothing if placed
above the line of sight, and others gain
rather than loso if hung much nearer
'.' A medallion, pr bas-relief of the right
sort set 'in "here pr. there ameng the pic
tures is a relief to the artistio sense,
and, above all, all sorts and conditions
of frameo should not be put together in
a hodge podge. Gold and white and
gilt do not offends, when in closo posi
tion, but pictures iramed in oak or any
dark wood should be kept by them
selves. Crayon portraits of photographs
should never be visible in a parlor or
drawing room, and to overcrowd the
walls of any room with pictures, gcod,
bad and indifferent, is the very acme of
poor taste." Now YorkBecordeav
PU5H IT ALONG
The Apology Was Accepted.
"There is a good story on The Exam
iner,' 1 said J. Eoss Jackson, the ex
nowspaper man, to somo friends in the
Palaco yesterday, "and although I'm

merit ou that account. It appears that
q druggist named Putnam was killed in
Willows recently by a man named Se

Tho Call and also to The Chronicle.
Tho nest morning, when Managing Ed
itor Hamilton of The Examiner was
looking over tho record of tho day, ho
discovered that his paper had been
'scooped' on that particular item. He
thereupon sent for Mr. Corey, the coast
editor of the paper.
" 'Mr. Corey,' he said, with a digni
fied look on his face, 'have we a corre
spondent in Willows?'
" 'Did he send ha a report of that
" 'Fire him.'
" 'How? By mail?
" 'No. By telegraph. We can't dis
pose of a man like that too quickly. A
correspondent who doesn't know that a
murder has been committed in his town
isn't fit for tho position. - Bounce him. '
"Mr. Corey went to his record book
of correspondents and presently returned
to the managing editor.
" 'Mr. Hamilton, there are certain
circumstances in this man's favor that'
" 'There are no circumstances that
would justify such an exhibition of in
competency. Bounce him, I say !'
" 'But, Mr. Hamilton, this case has
no parallel That -man has a good ex
cuso for overlooking the importance of
the story. '
u 'Well, what was his excuse?' in
quired the editor, becoming nervous.
" 'Well,' answered Corey, scratching
his chin a moment, 'he was the man
who got killed. '
"Mr. Hamilton lapsed into silence
and went ou reading some proofs. " San
