enso since the wound ho hnd Inflicted
wns not mortal. He therefore had the
prospect of languishing in Jnll during
a hot summer, with the further pros

The colonel nsked tho prisoner if he
would come back certain sho' if he

The trial was fixed for the 4th of No

ent city of Chuttunoogii. There was

I never .went upstream, so Dixon cut
I across country on foot. As he left the
1 place of his misfortune one of a knot
; of men who stood looking after him
said, "There goes your $5,000, colonel."
When the 1st of November came
round Colonel Armstrong had not
heard a word from the man ho had
befriended. The kind hearted colonel
was an object of sympathy on tho part
of the inhabitants of tho locality, for
no one expected that a man was com
ing away from Tennessee for the pur
pose of being sent to state prison
when he could get off by staying at
home. The second nnd third days of
the month passed, nnd on the morning
of the fourth tho court canio together
for (he purpose of trying Dixon, but
there was 110 Dixon present. Out of
sympathy for Colonel Armstrong tho
Judge delayed matters as long as pos
sible. Suddenly there was a sound of heavy
boots on the courthouse steps, and tho
culprit rushed wildly into court and

Tho ball furnisher embraced the new
comer, while those present cheered.
Then Dixon was asked to tell how
ho had come. He had made his way
down the Tennessee river in a dugout
to its mouth, where ho expected to bo
picked up by a Out bont on which ho
might work his way down tho Mis
sissippi river. Having waited several
days In vain for one, ho continued on
lu his dugout, over the rest of tho way
from Cairo, a distance of many hun
dred miles, to his destination. When
tho story had been told the prosecuting
attorney, considering that tho gambler
who hud been s tabbed had recovered
nnd had slnco been killed by another
person he had fleeced, requested the
case be dropped, and the prisoner was
discharged. Again he set out on ids
homeward journed through a wild
country. Ho was offered money by
tho kind hearted planter who had be
fore befriended him, but he declined

A well known Parisian antiquary
while on his holidays In Normnndy
came across 1111 old farm which hnd a
curious curving In the form of an ar
morial hen ting over one of the stable
doors. Iteiieath the cnrvlng wns a
wooden bnr Inscribed with a date. Ex
amining It closely, ho found the latter
to bo 1081. All his antiquarian pas
sions were nroused, needless to sny,
nnd nfter some bargaining the farmer
sold him the cnrvlng for quite a nice
sum. The next day the farmer brought
the trouvaille to the antiquary's villa.
"This isn't what I bought!" exclaimed
tho purchaser. "It bears the date of
1S01. I don't want It." "Excuse me.
Blr," replied tho farmer, "it's tho
same, tight enough. Hut the fnrmer
who recently repaired It replaced the
bnr upside down, nnd I thought I
ought to put It tight for you." Tho nn
tlquary was sporting enough not to
go back on his bargain, but the facts
of tho case do not seem to speak highly
of his nntlqunrtnn knowledge. London
Very Cautious Bird.
