Chehter Doylo and Totna Abo,
tho Japano special policeman,
havo a good Uoal of business to
gethor at d: Teront times and they
are quite friendly, so much so that
Toma will do almost auythiug to
please his friend Doyle. They
wore both iu tho police station
this morning and time hung heavy
on Doylo's hands ou account of tho
rain and other things. Ho finally
asked Toma if ho would mind go
ing up to tho Uollistor Drug Co.'s
storo aud getting something for
him. Toma was only too willing
and Doyle wrote down what ho
wanted on a piece of papor and
gavo tho accommodating special
a 50 cent pieco to pay for it with.
As Toma was going out of tho
door, Doyle called him back,
saying, " Bo sure you don't
toll anybody who it is for. I
don't want tho whole town to
know what is tho matter with mo."
Toma promised aud in duo time
reached tho storo. He handed
tho papor to ouo of tho handsome
and accommodating young clorks
thisro, who opened it and read the
following: "Pleaso let tho bearor
havo 50 couts worth of macaroni
seeds." Tho clerk studied a while,
wauted to know who it was for,
whether ho had a bad breath or
not, whether ho was in tho habit
of driukiug whisky, smoking
opium or eating soy, but to all
these questions Toma was deaf.
Ho wauted tho mediciuo for a
sick man but who it was ho would
not state. Tho clerk said if ho
kuew who it was ho could tell if ho
j wanted cardamon seedBto sweeten
I hid breath or not, but Toma
I would not give his friend away.
A consultation of clerks was
held and finally Jack Winter was
1 called in. Ho evidently lecogniz
1 ed tho handwriting, for ho said to
Tom:., '1 kno.v what you want
, hut wo aro out of it just now.
Ton go ovor to lienson it Smith's.

Knowing Jack Winter's repu
i tation for truth ami veiacity iu
i tho community, Toma went off
I like a shot. At Buiikou it Smith's
ho went through the sanio ordeal,
I being finally sont to tho Hobron

I suspicious and mooting an honest
1 and truthful reportor asked him
to tell him what tho medicine was.
Ho was told thoro was no such
stuff as macaroni seeds, but that
he could get plouty of macaroni
at thu grocory atoros. Ho started
off to Lewis & Co.'s but tho re
porter took pity ou him and told
him that Doylo was "joshing"
him. "I didn't think ho would do
it to mo that way," Baid Toma,
"come on, we'll spoud tho nionoy
anyhow," aud shortly aftorwards
two glassosof lemonade disappear
