- Miss -Gertrude Ainsley put on her
hat that sunny spring day and walked
down the road and over the creek and
up into the woods on the hill. There
were stately elms and beeches and
maples; the spice-bush gave out its
scent; there were violets under foot
everywhere, and the robins and blue
birds seemed to welcome an intruder.
There were paths running here and
there, and as the girl took one of them
nhe heard a queer sound from the
brush on her right, and investigated to
find a rabbit caught by the leg in a

this way and that and into the air,
but the snare held and he cried and
whiimpere(l and feared for his life.
When the girl had come closer and
began to call him poor thing and ex
claim that it was a burning shame,
the captive uliddled down and stared
at her withi his great big eyes. She
was stroking it with her hand when a
boy of twelve caie running to shout:
"lie's mine! He's mine! I set the
snare for him last night!"
Up he came, and was about to lift
tho rabbit in his arms when Miss
Gertrude gave him a push and de
"What business have you snaring
the poor creatures!"
"lusiness! Business!" he repeated.
"Why any one can catch rabbits any
time they want to! lie's i daisy. alI
the fellow will pay fifty cents for hii.
Gee, but I'm in luck!"
"What fellow, as you call him ?"
"lle's at the tavern. We wants me
1o catch all the rabbits and quails and
biris I can.''
"Then he's a illain!"
"lie don't look like one."
"I don't care how lie looks! Any
man that will hire a boy to trap such
poor innocent things as rahbits is a
villanl, and you can tell llim I said
"I will, when I carry this to him.

"Miss Ainsley: Your conduct this

Then there followed a "sincerely,"

Miss Gertrude was absent from the
room four or five minutes, and then
returned with a reply for the awful
man. It read:
"Sir: I reiterate -that you are a
That was all. No "sincerely,"-no
"respectfully"-no "your very ob't
servant." Even the initials "G. A."
Mr. Ainsley was away from home,
and when the mother learned what
had happened she said:
"You Were always that way from
a child, and you can't help it, I sup

too far in this case. Calling a man a

If he catches a robin, a blue-bird or

Miss Gertrude clenched her hands
and breathed hard and left it to be
understood that something very ter
rible would happen to the zross-eyed
and red-headed man. Next morning
she went up to the woods again. She
went in the forenoon because she sus
pected that boy would set snares over
night and visit them early. She walked
the paths and found four, and the
wires were thrown far away. They
had snared no victims.
As she was on her way home she

She looked at him more closely this

Surely he was a gentleman. The boy
was not seen until mid-afternoon. Then
he brought another note, and as lie de

-Veteran- Painter Still $t'Work.
B3. W. Idadei-, R. A' England's fa
mous painter of landsca'pts, has, at the
ago of eighty, put th~ .finishing touclies
to three- pictures by whiech limo will be
represented this year at the Academ.
His "February Fill Dyke" is one of his
best-known wvorks. Leader's father
was a painter of some merit, and the
son inherited a strong artistic nature.
During his early life he was, by force
of financial circumstances, compelled
to paint the kind of pictures the public
liked. "Many's the time," he states,
"I have wished I could destroy a num
ber of those early pot-boilers." His
first picture was exhibited at 'the
Royal Academy about sixty years ago.
He has many pleas8ant memories of
Constable and Millais. As may be ex
pected, Mr. Leader is a fierce oppo,.
nent of the Post-Impressionists.
10,000 Boys Off 1.ondon Streets,
A new set of by-laws regulating
street trading by juveniles has been
approved by the London county coun
cil educational commlittee. If the by
laws are sanctioned by the council
no boy under fourteen and no girl un
der sixteen will be permitted to en
gage in street trading, It was stated
that the effect of the new regulations
would be to take 10,000 boys and
1,000 girls off the streets, where they
were now trading.
