J. D. Moore's 'Here Yet
A lot of veople have ups and downs.
Bit mie have alway been down,
THAT'd A FACT.
Sometimes I'm glad, sometimes I'm
sad, but long to tell my story when we
battlewhanged through this vain world.
I am in the market for Beef, I heep,
Pork and Mutton. Sell a heap of meat,
and always like to sell to those who
want to buy of me. but don't want to
*ell to those who don't want to buy of
me. because there are enough that trade
with me to take all that I can get.
THE THIRD FACT.
I still buy hides green or dried. I buy
anything you got, always want some
thing but can't tell what. So come and I
see how it will be when you buy your
meat from me. And remember the old
meat market Moore as in days of yore.

Blaldos was .not long in preparing
plans for the changes in the fortress.
They embodied, a temporary readjust
ment of the armament and alterations
in the amnmunition house, The gate
leading bo the river wvas closed, and
the refuse from the fort was taken to
the barges by way of the main esn
trance. There were other changes sug
gested for unmedi~te -.consideration,
and then there was a generali plani for
the modernizing of the for'tress at some,
more convenient time, Uidos lacon
ically observed that the equipmnent,
was years behind the times. To the
amazement of the ,ofliclals, he wvas
able to talk intelligently of forts in
all parts of the world1, revealing a
widle and thorough knowledge and ex
tensive Inspection. He had seen Amer
Ican as well as European fortiflcatIons.
The Graustark engineers went to work
at once to perfect the sImple changes

to strengthen the plIace before an at

that would mean the end of. overything.
No doubt he felt the same and kept
his counsel, but the game could not

ning to study him from a standpoint
pecullarly and selfishly her own. Where
recently she had sung his praise to Ye
tive and others she now was strangely
reticent. She was to understand an
other day why this change had come

came to her ears from Lorry and An

was p'roud, fastly proud, of him' in
The Iron Count alone discredited the
ability and the conscientiousness of
the "ilounfebank," as he named 'the
man who had put his nose out of joint.
Beverly, seeing much of Marlanx,
made the mistake of chiding him
frankly and gayly about this aversion.
She even argued the guard's case be- P
fore the head of the army, imprudently
pointing out many of his superior qual
ities in advocating his cause. The
count was learning forbearance in his
old age. He saw the wisdom of pro

fame. Reports went forth with unblas

the best swordsman in the'service, 'as
well as the most efficient marksman.
With the foils and sabers he easily
vanquished the foremost fencers in
high -and low circles. He could ride
like a Gossack or like an American
cowboy. Of thetn all, his warmest ad
mirer was Haddan. the man set to
watch him for the secret service. Tt J.
may be timely to state that Haddan
watched in vain.
The princess, humoring her own fan -__
cy, as well as Beverly's foibles, took to
riding with her. high spirited young
guest on many a little jaunt to the
hills. She usually rode with Lorry or
Anguish, cheerfully assuming the sub

unique position. In order to maintain
her attitude as princess the fair young

make love t you, dear, If he thinks
,you are another man's wife?" Yetive
asked. her blue eyes beaming with the
fun of it all.
"Pooli!" sulffed Beverly. "You have
only to consult history to find' the ex
euse., It's the dear old habit of men to

for it. Besides, he is not expected to

O -a day soon after the return of
