OLD MEEK AVENGED.
At Meyer's Cross Roads, Term., a de
serted shanty marks the spot where
there once flourished a great,coinmorcial
emporium. This busy mart of merchan
dise was presided over by a wheezing
old fellow who was known as Meek Ben
der. His whole life seems to have been
a continual round of apology. His fear
was not of a drought, which might in
jur trade, or of an overflow of the
creek, which might wash his house
away, but that ho might at some
thoughtless time wound the feelings of
his fellow man. His name was John,
but his habit of extreme care, his man
ner, which had been refined into gentle
ness and then softened into timidity,
brought to him the name of Meek. His
business was good, for there was no
other store in the community, yet he
was always hard pushed. The fact is he
was too timid tmd too much afraid of
giving offense to refuse credit, and when
credit had been given he was too gentle
to ask for the money which was due him.
Even people that were regarded as strict
ly honest were not slow in imposing on
The back room of Meek's store was
the wet day gathering place for tho
neighborhood. Contracts .for the yeai
were drawn up there, and many an old
score had been settled in that dingy back
room. When the weather was cold and
when the fire burned low no one would
offer to go out and bring in wood from
the rick, a short distance away, but
pome strapping fellow would call old
Meek, no matter how busy ho might be.
"Here, old boy, you will have to calk
up this room to keep the fire from get
ting out if you don't mind."
"Gentlemen." he would reply, in a
most apologetic manner, "you must
really excuse me. You'll pardon me,
won't you? I will do better in the fut
ure." One day 'Lige Parker came into the
store, and calling old Meek aside said:
"Meek, Pve got to have $25."
" 'Lige," Meek answered, with embar
rassment, "you know that if I had it
you could get it."
"What, haven't yon got it?"
"Not to save my life, 'Lige."
"Oh, come now. Meek. Who ever
hcarn of you bein' out of money? Tho
rest of us moufbe hard up, but you air
alius fixed. Let me have twenty-five."
" 'Lige, I lent the last cent I had this
"Go and look in the drawer, Meek. I
reckon you'll find some sneakin' round in
"I took out the last cent, 'Lige."
"Wall, dang it, go an' look when I tell
'Lige followed him to the money
drawer. The old man pulled trie drawer
open and said, "Thar now, 'Lige, don't
you see thar ain't none?'
"Thar ain't none, sho 'nuff. Who did
you lend it to?"
"I don't like to say, 'Lige."
"Oh, it's all right. What difference
can it make?"
"None, only I don't like to be tellin'
who I lend money to."
"Come, tell me. I won't say a word
"Not a word, 'Lige?"
"Not a single word."
"Wall, I'll tell you, jest to 'commodate
you. but please don't mention it. Jim
Henly come to mo this mornin' an'
lowed that he must have twenty-five,
an' I lot him have it, although I've got a
bill that I must pay this week or 6hut
up the house."
"Jim Henly, eh? W'y, he onghter
have plenty money. He's got some colts
that he can sell any time fur a good
price. Say, when he pays 3-ou back will
you let me have the twenty-five?"
"Of course, 'Lige, you know I'll lei
you have it as soon as I get it."
That afternoon 'Lige met Jim Henlj
in the road. "Hello, Jim, which way?"
"Oh, sorter ridin' roun' for my health,
as the feller 'lowed when he was gittin'
outen tho way of the sheriff."
"Didn't know but you was goin' over
to old Meek's."
"Wall, I didn't know but I moufc ride
over that way befo' the thing is done
"Goin' to pay him that money, I reck
on." "What money?" Jim asked in sur
prise. "The twenty-five you borrowed from
"How the devil do you know I bor
rowed any mony from him?'
"You won't say nothin' about it, will
"No. Go ahead."
"Wall, I was over to tho store this
mornin', an' the odd man was sorter coin
plainin' about a bill he's got to pay or
shut tip the house. Said he needed the
money he let you have."
"Ah, ha, the old fool is paradin'it
'round that he let me have a few dollars,
"Not particularly paradin' it, Jim.
Ho 'lows that he needs the money, an I
reckon he do. Don't say nothin' about
it, but if you can raise the money, w'y
go an' give it to him. Wall, so long."
It was a chill' evening. A number of
the "boys" sat in old Meek's back room
"You've got me faded now," said Alf
Moore, bunching his cards. "Got me
down whar the ground is mighty rocky.
Hello, Jim Henly, how air they comin'?
Squat and take a hand."
"Whar is old Meek?' Henly asked.
"Gone out to git some wood. Ib'lieve."
Meek came in and put a back log on
"W'y, howdy, Jim," said the old man,
as he brushed off his sleeves. "Sorter
chilly an' saft outside."
Jim stood looking at him. After a while
ho remarked, "Yes, a little chilly, but
not as much so as it will be if peoplo
don't stop talMn about thar betters."
"Anything wrong, Jim?"" the old man
"Tos. thar is. Thar's a blame sight
"What is it. Jimmy?" the old man
asked, almost affectionately.
"Why, it's this, an' I want you to un
derstan' me when I sav it. If you don't
1 stop blowin' an' a-suortin' abont lendiu'
j me that money Fll shut off your air.
j Oh. you needn't try to look like a sick
i kitten. You've been talkin about me.
W. T. BISHOP &
aa' you know It; an .lnore'nthat, 1 don't
intend to let you lie out of it. Don't
say a word, you old blatherskite. The
tongues of old fooht haye caused me
enough trouble lately caused me and
my wife to part shut up!"
Old Meek had attempted to say some
thing. "Jest stan' thar an' take your medi
cine, as I am a mind to give it. You
have been playin' tho hypercrit with us
long enough, an' me for one ain't goin'
to stand it no longer. Don't say a word,
I tell you don't open your chops. You
git about ever" cent thaf a made in this
neighborhood, an' then when a man
vrants a little accommodation you go
around an' blow about it."
Every one gazed at Jim, but npt a
word was spoken. The violence of Jim's
temper was well known. No one moved
except Alf, and he, taking out his buck
horn handle knife, began to cut off a
chew of tobacco.
"Yes," Jim went on, "we've beer
thfnkin' all along that you was so harm
le.3 when we mout 'a' knowed that you
was a snake in the grass. What, yor;
will sav somethin', whuther no! By
G d, I'll show you!"
He snatched the knife out of Alfs
hand, and. so quickly that a wide awake
eye could scarcely follow his motion,
stabbed the old man.
Jim sprang through the door and dis
appeared in the darkness. They took
old Meek from the floor and tenderly
placed hidi on the bed.
"Alf," said the old man, 'Tve bled on
your hand, but I couldn't help it, Alf."
The boys were in the back room of the
store sitting up with the old man. Sev
eral days had elapsed and a physician
who had just left thought he might re
cover. He was resting quietly; the boys
were playing cards.
"Want anything, Meek?" Alf asked.
"No, I don't want nothin', an' above
all I don't want to interrupt the game,
but I jest wanted to tell you that I be
lieve that I am dyin'."
"Oh, I reckon not," Alf replied, get
ting up, but when he reached the bedside
the old man was dead.
"Who's thar?" Jim called, opening the
door and gazing into the darkness.
"Alf an' the boys," came the reply.
"What do you want, boys?"
"Come out here."
"What's up?' he asked when he came
to the gate.
"I don't understand."
"But you shall. Meak is dead."
"Cy, hand me the rope," said Alf.
The men that were putting the grave
clothes on old Meek the next morning
could look through the door the door J
through which ho used to bring in wood
and see Jim hanging from a tree.

Soldiers' Indian Hardship.
In a land of leaches you should think
twice before wading in water. Other

has happened to two British warriors in
India, Privates Speed and Davis, who,

lost their way, were fastened upon by
the leeches in the pools which they had
to cross barelegged. The two soldiers
wandered about hopelessly for nine days.
Bareilly is near the jungles of Nepaul,
the favorite home of the tiger; but bo
fore the nine days were out Davis and
Speed would have given a year or two of
their lives for the sight of an honest wild
It is a marvel that the two did not die
of hardship. Tho heat in upper India
in July is simply terrific. Yet the two
survived it, exposed to the sun's rays
during the day, sleeping in the open air
at night. Not a village did they come
across, not a human being, for the whole
region was submerged by the yearly
floods. They began by catching butter
flies, and they finished off by being found
nine-tenths dead beside tho metals of a
railway line. The first solid food they
had in nine days was two "chupatties."
A chupatty is a wheaten cake, not un

The Russian government has sent sev
eral phj-sicians to Asia Minor to make
experiments in the treatmeut of cholera
with ferula sumbul, or muskroot, a
plant which grows in Turkestan and
which possesses certain anti-spasmodic
properties. It formerly enjoyed quite a
reputation in Germany and Russia as a
remedy for cholera, but has fallen out
of use in recent times. Even its name is
now unknown to most practitioners in
those countries, although tho plant is

Cardinal Ncirman'i "Ordeal by Fiddle."
The late Bishop Ullathorne, of Birming
ham, who had as little ear for music as he
had for the letter H, was always rallying
Newman on what he called his "fiddling."
On one occasion a rather dreary Evangel
ical parson challenged the illustrious Ora
torian to mortal discussion on the subject
of the Blessed Virgin. He added that he
would prove that the Virgin Mary was not
one whit superior to his own mother.
Newman, who loved a joke, replied that
platform discussions were not at all in his
On reflection, however, he could not help
thinking that, whatever might be the dif
fereno between the two mothers, that be
tween the two sons was prodigious. The
futuni cardinal concluded by suggesting
that a violin match between a priest and a
paron would be more entertaining, and
that to some extent the audience might
take it as the 'ordeal by fiddle, and vote

Missouri Pacific railway will run through
sleeping cars fiom St. Louis via Pleasant
