Algernon Charles tawmburna In Lady.
IN THE PBIDEOE YOUTH.
"When I was telling you of the joke that
the Worm played off on the senior sub
altern I promised a somewhat similar tale,
but with all the jest loft out. This is that
Dicky Hatt was kidnaped in his early,
early youth -neither by landlady's daugh
ter, housemaid, barmaid, nor cook, but by
a girl so nearly of hu own caste that only
a woman could have-said she was just the
least little bit in the world below it. This
happened a month bef oraskosamo out to
India, and five days after his one-and-twen-tiefch
birthday. The girl was nineteen six
years older than Dicky in tho things of this
world, that is to say and, for the time,
twice as foolish as he.
Excepting always falling off a horsa
there is nothing more fatally easy than
marriage before tho registrar. The cere
mony costs less than fifty shillings, and is
remarkably like walking into a pawn shop.
After tho declarations of residence have
been put In four minutes will cover the
rest of the proceedings fees, attestation
and all. Then the registrar slides the blot
ting pad over the names, and says grimly
with his pen between his teeth: "Now
you're man and wife;" and the couple walk
oufinto the street, feeling as if something
were horribly illegal somewhere.
But that ceremony holds and can drag a
man to his undoing just as thoroughly as
the "long as ye both shall live" curse from
tho altar rails, with tho bridesmaids gig
gling behind, and "The Voice That
Breathed o'er Eden" lifting the roof off. In
this manner was Dicky Hatt kidnaped, and
he considered it vastly fine, for ho had re
ceived an appointment in India which car
ried a magnificent salary from the homo
point of view. The marriage was to be
kept secret for a year. Then Mrs. Dicky
Hatt was to come out and tho rest of life
was to be a golden mist. That was how
they sketched it under the Addison Road
station lamps; and after one short month
came Gravesend and Dicky steaming out
to his new life, and the girl crying in a
in a back street off Montpelier square near
the Knightsbridge barracks.
But the country that Dicky oamo to was
a bard land, where "men" of 21 were reek
oned very small boys indeed and life was
expensive. Tho salary that loomed so
large 6,000 miles away did not go far par
ticularly when Dicky divided it by two
and remitted more than tho fair half at 1-6
to Montpeliec square. One hundred and
thirty-five rupees out of the 880 is not
much to live on, but it was absurd to sup
pose that Mrs. Hatt could exist forever on
the 20 held back by Dicky from his outfit
allowance. Dicky saw this and remitted
at once, always remembering that Ra. 700
were to be paid twelve months later for a
first class passage out for a lady. "When
you add to these trifling details theoxatufal
instincts of a boy beginning a new life in a
now country, and longing to go about and
enjoy himself, and the necessity for grap
pling with strange work whifhj.pr.operly
speaking, should take up a boy's undivided
attention you will sco that Dicky started
handicapped. He saw it himself for a
breath or two, but he did not guess the
full beauty of his future.
As the hot weather began tho shackles
settled on him and ate into his-flesh. First
would come letters big, crossed, eovea
sheet lotters from his wife, telling him
how Ehe longed to see him, and what a
heaven upon earth would be their property
when they met. Then some boy of tho
chummery wherein Dicky lodged would
pound on the door of his bare little room
and toll him to oomc out to look at a pony
tho very thing to suit him. Dicky could
not afford ponies. Ho had to explain this.
Dicky could not afford living in the chum
mery, modest as it was. He had to explain
this before ho moved to a single room next
tho office whoro he worked all day. He
kept houso on a green oilclafchyikable cover,
one chair, one charpoy, one photograph,
one tooth glass, very strong and thiok, a
seven rupee eightanna filter, and messing
by contract at thirty-soven rupees a month
which last item was extortion. He had
no punkah, for punkah costs fifteen rupees
a mouth; but lie slept on the roof of the
office wifch all his wifd'6 letters undor his
pillow. Now and again he was asked out
to dinner, where ho got both a punkah and
an iced drink. But this was seldom, for
pooplo objected to recognizing a boy who
had evidently tho instincts of a Scotch
tallow chandler and who lived in such a
nasty fashion. Dicky could not subscribe
to any amusement, so he found no amuse
ment oxoept tha pleasure of turning over
his bank book and reading what it said
about "loans on approved security." That
cost nothing. He remitted through a Bom
bay bank, by the way, and the station
knew nothing of his private affairs.
Every month he sent homo all ho could
possibly spare for his wife and for another
reason which wab expected to explain itself
khartlv and 'uj2iild requiro more money.

Fer are Free
About this time DIcKy was- overcasen
with the nervous, hauntinfc fear that besets
married men when thap are oat of sorts.
He had no pension to lookto. What if he
should die suddenly and leave his wife un-
Erovided for? The thought used to lay
old of him in the still, hot nights on the
roof, till the shaking of his heart made
him think that ije was going to die then
and there of heart disease. Now this is a
frame of mind-wMch no boy has a right to
know. It is a strong man's trouble; but,
coming when it did, it nearly drove poor
punkahless, perspiring Dicky Hatt mad.
He could tell no one about it.
A certain amount of "screw" is as neces
sary for a man as for a billiard ball. It
makes them both do wonderful things.
Dicky needed money badly, and he worked
for it like a horse. But, naturally, the men
who owned him knew that a boy can live
very comfortably on a certain income pay
in India is a matter of age, not merit, you
see, and if their particular boy wished to
work like two boys business forbid that
tbey should stop aim! But business forbid
that they should give him an increase of
pay at his present ridiculously immature
age! So Dicky won certain rises of salary
ample for a boy, not enough for a wife
and a child certainly too little for the
TOO rupee passage that he and Mrs. Hatt
had discussed so lightly once upon a time.
And with this he was forced to be content.
Somehow all his money seemed to fade
away in home drafts and the crushing ex
change, and the tone of the home letters
changed and grew querulous. "Why
wouldn't Dicky have his wife and the
baby out? Surely he had a salary a fine
salary and it was too bad of him to enjoy
himself in India. But would he could he
make the next draft a little more elas
tic?" Here followed a list of baby's kit
as long as a Parsee's bill. Then Dicky,
whose heart yearned to his wife and the
little boh he had never seen which again
is a feeling no boy is entitled to enlarged
the draft and wrote queer half boy, half
man letters, .saying that life was not so
enjoyable after all, and would the littlo
wife wait yet a little longer? But the
little wife, however much she approved of
money, objected to waiting, and there was
a strange, bard sort of ring in her letters
that Dicky didn't understand. How could
he, poor boy?
Later on still, just as Dicky had been
told apropos of another youngster who
had "made a fool of himself," as the saying
is that matrimony would not only ruin
his further chances of advancement, but
would lose him his present appointment
came the news that the baby, his own
little, little son, had died, and behind this
forty lines of an angry woman's scrawl,
saying tho death might have been averted
if certain things, all costing money, had
been done, or if the mother and the baby
had been with Dicky. The letter struck at
Dicky's naked, heart, but not being official
ly entitled to a baby he could show no sign
How Dicky won through tho next four
months, and what hope he kept alight to
force him into his work, no one dare say.
He pounded on, the 700 rupee passage aa
far away as ever, and his style of living un
changed except when ho launched into a
new filter. There was the strain of his
office work and the strain of his remit
tances, and the knowledge of his boy's
death, which touched the boy more, per
haps, than it would have touched a man,
and, beyond all, the enduring strain of his
daily life. Gray headed seniors who ap
proved of his thrift and his fashion of de
nying himself everything pleasant remind
ed him of the old Baw that says:
If a youth would be distinguished in his art, art,
He must keep the girls away from his heart, heart,
And Dicky, who fancied he had been
through every trouble that a man is per
mitted to know, had -to-lough and agree,
with the last lino of his balanced bank
book jingling in his head day and night.
But he had one more sorrow to digest
before tho end. There arrived a letter from
the little wife the natural sequence of the
others if Dicky had only known it and the
burden of that letter was "gone with a
handsomer man than you." It was a rather
curious production, without stops, some
thing like this: "She was not going to wait
forever and the baby was dead and Dicky
was only a boy and he would never set eyes
on her again and why hadn't he waved his
handkerchief to her when helef t Gravesend
and God was her judge she was a wicked
woman but Dicky was worse enjoying him
self in India and this other man love the
ground she trod on and would Dicky ever
forgivo her for she would never forgive
Dicky; and there was no address to write to. "
Instead of thanking his stars that he
was free, Dicky discovered exactly how an
injured husbarfd feels again, not at all
the knowledge to whichit boy is entitled
for his mind wont back to his wife as he
remembered her in tho thirty shilling
"suit" in Vontpelier square, when the
dawn of his last morning in England was
breaking and she was crying in the bod.
"Whereat he rolled about on his bed and
bit his fingers. Ho never stopped to think
whether, if he had met Mrs. Hatt after
those two years, he would have discovered
that he and she had grown quito different
and new persons. This, theoretically, he
ought to have done. He spent the night
after the English mail came in rather
Next morning Dicky Hatt felt disin
clined to work. Ho argued that he had
missed the pleasure of youth. He was
tired, and he had tasted all tho sorrow in
life before three and twenty. His honor
was gone that was the man; and now he,
too, would go to the devil that was the
boy in him. So ho put his head down on
the green oil cloth table cover and wept
before resigning his post, and all it offered.
But the reward of his services came. He
was given three days to reconsider himself,
and the head of the establishment, after
somo ttilographings, said that it was a most
unusual step, but in view of tho ability
that Mr. Hatt had displayed at such and
such a time, at 6uch and such junctures,
ho was in a position to offer him an infi
nitely superior post first on probation, and
later, iu the natural course of things, on
confirmation. "And how much does the
post carry?" said Dicky. "Six hundred
and fifty rupoes," said the head slowly, ex
pecting to bee the young man sink with
gratitude and joy.
And it came thenl the 700 rupee passage,
and enough to have saved the wife and the
little son, and to have allowed of assured
aud open marriage, came then. Dicky
burst into a roar of laughter laughter be
could not check nasty, jangling merri
ment that seemed as if it would go on for
ever. When he had recovered himself he
said, quite seriously: "I'm tired of work.
I'm an old man now. It's about time I re
tired. And I will."
"The boy's mad!" said the head.
I think lie was right; but Dicky Hatt
never reappeared to settle the question.

HOPING TEXAS STEERS.
A REMARKABLE CONTEST AT A
COUNTY FAIR IN THE SOUTH.
Furious Animals Turned Loose for h
Sen and Ponies to Tussle- Witk Pe
culiar Sagacity of tho Little Ponies.
Men tVfco Have to Bo Quick.
One of the most interesting thing3 1 saw
while I was in Texas was a roping contest
at the Concho county fair. The winner of
the first prize a beautiful cowboy saddle
was to be the contestant who should rope
and tie down a steer in the shortest time.
The second prize was a gorgeous gold and
silver trimmed" sombrero, and was to be
won by the contestant making second best
It is the intention to run up as close
alongside or behind the steer as possible,
and, while going about his own gait, throw
the rope over his horns; then by following
along with tho rope slack it may be gotten
clear under him as he runs; then by taking
a turn around .the pommel it is secured,
the pony suddenly stopped, braced with all
his strength, and the steer is thrown clean
heels over head literally. By a dexterous
jerk and-good mac&gemeat a steer may be
thrown wh8n the rope has caught but one
horn, but it-will usually slip off.
If, whenhe has been roped and the. rope
made fast to the pommel, a steer suddenly
bolts sideways, he is very apt to pull horse
and rider over especially if he be big and
the pony little. When the steer has been
thrown all right the rider jumps off and
runs to tie himleaving the pony to hold
him by keeping the line from the pommel
to his horns taut. And this was to me the
prettiest picture in the whole panorama.
The sagacious little pony standing with
his nose to tho fallen adversary, straining
at the line, and watching the steer with
bright, knowing eyes. He realizes that he's
in a bad fix if tho steer gets up, and he
hasn't the least intontioe of letting him do

HOW THE STSBR IS ROPED.
When tho fair commences tho steer is
holed about with sticks, clubs, yells and
whoops, until perfectly maddened, when
the outer bars are suddenly withdrawn
and he leaps out into the opening. The
contestant whose turn it is is stationed
close to one side, and is after him like a

ored one. with horns about four feet
across at the points, and that ran like a
doer. Tho cowboy was, a fine, handsome,
keen looking fellow, and his pony one of
the best cow ponies in the country, a little
white fellow, bearing tho favorite name of
Possum, with big, bright, black eyes, as
quick as o cat, a ''regular trump." They
get a fair start with ihe steer, tho throw
was made successfully, and then camo tha
momontof Buspense, when tha pooy was
straining evory nerve to keep with the
steer, while the rider watched each turn to
catch and throwhim by an endwise jerk.
This he succeeded in doing, then leaped
from the saddle to "tie him down," leaving
Possum to-hold him. He had but touched
the ground when the steer made a sadden
convulsive effort and rose to his feet. But
Possum's eye was on him; he instantly ran
backward and jorkod him flat. By this
time the cowboy reached the steer, jsmped
on him and tied his feet and tho business
Now recommenced the yelling and whoop
ing, and a big white steer teanrinto the pen
and is half across tha bars before be can ba

tho bars before they can be taken down.
This time it is the deputy sheriff that after

there were screams and roars of la-sghter
and shouts of admiration as tho plucky lit

tho big animal about tall attendants could
come up and eut the rope and drive him
into tho outer regions.
Here comes the next candidate for the
rope. This time tho roper is a handsome
boy of 21 or 33, whose father owns a big
ranch, of which the young man is manager.
Off they go, tho fiery little pony fairly fly
ing over the ground. The steer is roped,
thrown not without a struggle and has
only to be tied to complete tho job. But
the moment he foci tho young fellow's
weight upon him he rises like a shot.
Everybody is breathless we hardly know
whether to laugh or be terrified.
But the pony doesn't debate. He prompt

This was tho very cutest pony of all, and
when his master got on him after tying
down his steer he went off fairly dancing
and swelling with pride and high spirits.

After this there were one or two failures,
one horse falling in a prairio dog hole and
one man missing the throw it had token
him long to get close enough to make.
And now camo an unusually wild, ugly
steer, and the funniest kind of a pair to
run after him and catch him. The pony
was a little, ratty roan, and the man big,
heavy and awkward looking. Everybody
laughed when they sailed in clone on the
heels of the vamoosing, buckskin colored
steer. But that little beetle bug of a pony

Eat Before Going to Bed.
Most students and women who are
troubled with insomnia are dyspeptic, and
they should, therefore, eat before going to
bed, having put aside work entirely at
least an hour before. If they are not
hungry they should simply be instructed
to eat, and if they are hungry they should
eat whatever they want. A glass of milk
and a biscuit is sometimes all that can be
taken at firsrfc, or mashed potato buttered.
If possible, the night meal should be taken
in another room than the sleeping apart
ment, aad for men in the city it will be
found advantageous to go out to a restau
rant. Before eating, however, a bath
should be taken, preferably cold or cool,
which should be given withaponge or
stiff brush, and the body thoroughly
rubbed off with a coarse towel afterward.
The bath need not be more than five
minutes in duration. Further than this,
the patient should go to bed at the same
hour every night asd arise at the samo
hour ovary morning. There is a popular
superstition that grown people should not
eat immediately before going to sleep; that
it will givo them indigestion or nightmare,
or both. Tha writer caanot see why adults
should bo so very different in this respect
fxoan babies. The average person should
be in bed Beven or eights hours, which is
timo enough for the digestion of almost
anything edible. In our American life, he
thinks, the digestion carried on through
sleep probably has the better chance for
thoroughness. Journal of American Medi-

One of the interesting canal enterprises
now on foot is that which is to connect-the
Corinthian and Saronic gulfs of Greece.
This canal across the Isthmus of Corinth,
which is to render unnecessary the voyage
around the Peloponnesus, will bo four
miles long, about tho length of tho Hoosac
tunnel, but it will beat even that famous
work in tho lapse of time between its in

of Greece, nearly 6G9 years before Christ;

It was aotually begun by Nero, who em

it is to be finished by Gen. Tuer, a Polish
engineer who was in tho Italian service
with Garibaldi, and who hopes to have it

corner stone of the National Capitol at
Washington with Masonic ceremony. The
Biblo upon which he took he oath of office
as first president of the United States was
used at the corner stone laying of the
memorial arch in this city. There is an in
teresting history concerning the preserva
tion of this book. When the gathering
took place at which Washington was to be
sworn it was discovered that no Bible had
been provided. One of the marshals of the
day was Jacob Morton, a gallant officer of
the revolution. He was a Mason and mas
tor of St. John lodge, whose place of meet
ing was near by.
Every Masonic lodge is required by its
charter to havo a Bible within its walls,
and Marshal Morton ran.around.the corn or,
