TUESDAY, JAN. 1, 1884.
grocory man. "Tho ilotectivo in
this ward says lio id shadowing a lot
of you boys that arc holding clan
destine meetings in a barn, and he
thinks you arc up to some deviltry.
You better look out or tho detective
will have you boys all pulled."
"Don't you worry about us," said
tho boy, as ho gave tho tramp a
quarter to buy the next meal, and
told him not to mention it, when the
tramp began to thank him. "That
detective is too smart for his boots.
Wo have formed a society for play
ing jokes on poor widows, this
winter. I have got nine boys in our
neighborhood to join tho society,
and wo are going to make it hot for
widows, and don't you forget it.
Tho humane society man is going to
toll us when they take a load of
wood to a poor widow's house, and
us boys are going to sneak tip to her
house, after dark armed to tho teetli
with buck saws atid saw bucks, and
axes, and before a widow knows
what kind of a gang wo arc, wo aro
going to saw up her wood and split
ft, and carry it in. We made the
darndest mistake last night, on the
South side, though. Wo found a
load of wood next to a poor widow's
housi, and sawed it up, and carried
in, and after we had got it done, a
dutch cigar maker, next door, who
owned the wood, got mad about it
and made us pay four dollars for the
wood. It took all tho money wo
had, but it was fun, and the widow
never knew where the -wood came
from. I had to sell my skates to
raise my share, but there is no ice,
nnyway. 1 suppose inai ucmjouvu
thinks ho will run on to a kit of
burglars tools when he makes a raid
on us in tho barn, but ho will find
us filing saws. Pa says us boys have
Btruck a lead now that makes him
proud of us, and if we can't find
wood enough to saw he will buy
some. If he does we will give it to
somebody that is poor. We aro not
sawing wood for people that are able
in lli" " PolnoUel lJ oaV it." ,
"Well, you take the cake," said
the grocery man, as ho cleaned up
the single crumb that tho tramp left.
"One spell I expected you would
bring up in state prison, and now I
wouldn't be surprised any Sunday
to go to church and find you in the
"No. von needn't expect to find
mo in a pulpit,' said the boy, as he
scratched a match on his pants to
light the tramp's pipe. "I shall
practice, and not preach."
A lively chase through the woods
rave spice 'to the elopement of Jessie
E. Rogers and Miss Kcna Anderson,
of this country. The young couple
have been laboring under the dis
advantage of parental prohibition,
the lady's father having forbidden
Rogers' young school teacher, Miss
Mulles, who was to ride by the girl's
house and invite Miss Rena to a
drive, but this game was frustrated.
Meantime the young lady went out
into the ilowcr-yard with Miss Mulles,
and upon the latter returning alone,
it was found that Rogers had picked
up his prize and fled. The enraged
father at once mounted a horse and
8 artcd in hot pursuit. The happy
couple had reached a point two miles
from town, and were congratulating
themselves on the success of their
plan, when a loud whoop and tho
sound of horses' hoods from the rear
notified them that they were pursued.
In a few seconds the irate f alitor came
i ito view. Rogers leaped from his
buggy and, followed by his intended
bride, disappeared in the woods.
Anderson followed iu tlic direction
(lie fugitives had taken, but they hod.
the start of him, and, after a fruitless
search, he returned home. Mean
while the happy couple had secured
another horse and buggy, and repaii
iug to the house of Jacob Living
ston, were married. All the panics
belong to well-to-do society. . F,
"See here!" exclaimed tho irate
sigent to the dancing-master who
.hired tho hall, "aro you going
' to nay me any rent any time this
year?" "Well," replied tho "Pro
fessor," "I haven't tiny money just
now, but I'm taking Bteps to raise
some." Ho saying, ho did a little
can-can business that made tho
agent's lmir stand on ends, and
calmly returned to the class, which
was scrambling and shuffling about
tho room in all tho blank verso of
motion. There is notliiug like know
ing just what you say when you
jncun it. -ArqonmiU
