Broomberry hastened to the boarding
house of Mrs Caddo She wonld have
talked iin hour about tho watch, or by
it either Shu would have told of the
myriad of trials that come to the wid
owed keeper of a boarding house, und
ane-aia ten or a certain Harness matter
named Sam Hainea, who had boarded
with ber, who was drunk nearly all the
time, who positively refused indeed In
a most insulting manner to pay his
board, hut who. after being threatened
by the law, and by n certain mormons
policeman who knew the widow quite
well, consented to glvo ber bis watch.
This Mr. Sam Haines could bo found in
Madison street, near Itoboy.
Uroomberry found tho harness maker
drnnk and communicative. He got the
watch of a certain pawnbroker, nnd
wonld neglect his work to go and show
Broomberry tho place.

"Tho fellow that sold you this watch
must have come by it dihonestly." Jie
said to the broker.
"Very likely, sir. Wo havo no means
of (hiding out, you know. All wo can
do is to tako the name and address, or

"Yes, that's true, I suppose. Bnt do

"Yes. I think so."
"Have yon ever seen him sinco he

"No. I think not."
"I have." said a boy standing at the

"I don't know where bo Mays, but 1

AND IHE Mil! PLOW, f
A farnifr ouo diiy left his homo In
tlin bright early morning to go into his
Ileitis. Ills road led lilm past a cross
.of slime, which wan oliu of many that
ilotted tliti himlHcupo In that faraway
'country, tho Sriindliiavlan iM-nlnsula.
As he reached the cross he knlt a
few moments In prayer, as wps his
wont eery day, before passln? 't. But
as he roo this morning fioin j cus
tomary worship he saw 011 the lulso
or the rock a strange looking Insect
that attracted his attention by Its bril
liant color. Nor was that nil. Tho
little creatine Fcemed Aery lestless,
running about lieto ami theie over the
cross nnd nt Its foot, ns If It were try
lug to leave tho hpot, but could not.
Tor Mime llttlo time tho farmer
wntched the Insect. Then ho went on
his wny "tu his Ileitis and forgot nil
about the Incident. Hut the next morn
ing It was recalled to ldm, for on his
way to his work lie t-uw It again n.s
he knelt nt the cros.s, still running
about heio ninl (hero as If It were
still trying to get ivfay, but could not.
"Can It be," he thought, "that this
creature Is one of those that live In
tho heart of the earth? Perhaps It
came unwittingly too close to tho cross
nnd now cannot get nwny."
Breathing a prayer and calling tho
inline of Deity, ho caught the beauti
fully coloied thing In his hand. But It
did not yield to his touch ns he had ex
pected. Instead It seemed to resist him
with Hiipcruntuiul force mid clung to
the rock with nil its strength.
The fanner, however, gave n strong
pull, and found that ho held by tho
hair n creature In appearance like it,
man, but only ubotit six Inches In
length, while It screamed nnd kicked
lit n most energetic manner.
'IIo, iio. friend," the farmer cried,
"this Is your trick, Is It? Now tell nio
who oti 1110 mid what trade joii know
thai enables you to earn your living In
The llttlo one, howoor, would not
answer his questions, but continued to
scream aud struggle with all his might.
"Ho be It," the farmer said at last
when ho found his efforts unavailing.
"We'll see to what tunc you'll Biug by
And with these words he turned back
to his house with his little one, clap
tied him Into n huge sooty Iron pot, put
the cover on It and carried it Into tho
"Koinaln there in the cold mid tlto
dmk until you are ready to answer
Twice 11 week the farmer visited his
prisoner, but with no result. So six
weeks passed by, mid one day the llttlo
one begged to be released, promising
to answer all questions'.
"l'lrst. then, tell me who you nro nnd
how you got where I found you," tho
"Yon have guessed It ns well ns I
can tell you," the black 0110 said. "I
am one of those that lli far down lit
tho em th. Wo feed the gieat central
lite. That Is why I mil so black. One
day I came up to cm III ninl hap
pened to pass near the cross. Von
know that when that happens we cau
not get nwny ami au compelled to be
come visible. I reared to attract at
tention In my natural form, so took
that of tho Insect ou noticed. Well,
you know the rest. Now let me go If
J on are honest."
"You havo told me all truly. 1 be
llee. Itut I have heard that you aie
also clever smiths. Is that so?"
"Yes, It Is true."
"Well, then, you should glo me a
present before I let you go. Would
that not bo fair?"
"Yes, jos," oageily said the black
one. "Ask what you will gold, silver,
Jewels, tine clothes or furniture. It,
thnll be yours In an Instnut."
"All that you mention 1 do not want,
but since you nro clever smiths mako
me a plow so light that the smallest
foal may draw It nnd not bo tired."
"Agreed! But free mo now!"
Tho mlnuto nfter tho great pot was
uncovered tho llttlo being disappeared.
but so suddenly that the fnrmer almost
believed that ho had been dreaming.
In the morning, however. In the ynrd
outside his cabin door the fanner
found n new plow. He fastened his
dog to It, much to the amusement of
his neighbors, but their nstonlshmeut
was great to see him pull It without
effort or weariness. Anil such tre
mendous furiows ns It turned had nev
er becu known before.
Well, that farmer grew very, very
rich, for he farmed more than any
one else nnd required few horses, for
the smallest hor.se could draw the
magic plow, which was the wonder of
the country lound.
