"Your luncheon is on tho pantry shelf

The expression on Annto's faoo was
any thing but encouraging to such a
pioposltlon, but the hourty kiss, given
a moment later, dispersed the rising
tears as Mrs. Thompson followed her
pretty daughter to the gate whoro Bat

"All right, and thou wo won't have

wits there ovor any thing so provok

mart, out rushed Dot, with loud barks
of protost at bolnjr left behind.
"O! mamma, do call hlra off," cried
Anulo, la real terror; "ho will ruin our
white drossas If he gota near us"
for Dot had ovidontly but justomorgod
from hU morning bath it tho road

or ho'll bo suro to follow us. Here,
give him this ploco of sandwich
and now do let's bo off If wo'ro ovor

moment after they had turned tho cor
nor and wero out of sight.
"That mlserublo ilttlo dog!" was
Annlo's first comment. "I don't see
how wo'ro over to got rid of him. He
isn't good for any thing, and bo is a
porfoat nuisance In ovory respect."
"Why don't you glvo him uwny?"
"Perhaps that would be a good
Idea," assented Annie, sarcastically.
"Supposo I proeonl him to you?
You're equal to tho Queen who ad
vised lior subjects to eat broad and
chooso rather than to starve. Why, I
couldn't pay any ono to tnko thut dog

well known. Ho hasn't a redeeming

keep him cloan, as ho usually rolls
In tho dltoh just after he's had a good
wash, and then ho sneaks into tho
houso and shakes himself on mamma's
sitting-room carpet. He won't oven
sloop out of doors, so wo koop him
iu tho cellar, and thoro he makes the
night hldoous with his wails. The
neighbors have threatened to kill

"Ha! ha! 'Speak of the angols and

nt that tuomont, for looking around
hu had discovered Dot pursuing thorn

thorn euoli moment
"WhntslaM wo dof We'll havo to
lur right around nd go back, for wo
can't get rid of htm in any other way,"
and In no nmlnblo framo of mind thoy
turned thoir horse's head homownrd.
Even Hnttle's amiability was milled
somewhat, and tho plcnlo was begin
ning to lose Its promised charms.
When poor Mrs. Thompson appeared
at tho trnto in obedience to Annie's
cnlll distress tho cause of their re-

"I with you'd see to hlra yourself
this time, mamma," was Annlo's un
gracious word of parting as thoy once
more drovo away.
"Why, It's only half-patt eight,"
said Battle, looking nt hor watch.
"Wo nocdn t havo been in suih a

"is that nil? Well. I wish I hadn't

Scotland! will you belle vo your cyos?
If lioro isn't that everlasting dog
again!" and oven ns Annto said tho
words, tho lrrepresslblo Dot rushed
past them, panting furiously and
covered with a thlek overcoat ot dust.
"This is certainly more than I enn
stand," cried Annie, in u real temper
at last. "Ho's got to go back, und
wo'ro not going to take him clthor.
Hero, glvo me tho whip."
Why, what ore you going to do?"
for Annlo's face was white with anger.
"Do? I'm going to send him back.
What do you suppose?" and tho next
moment sho sprang lightly to the
"Go home, go home, you rascal.
Go home, I st-y," but the offender did
not go home as expected, or eren
move a foot in thnt direction, for at
sight of tho figure towering above
him, brandishing IU cruel weapon on
hlgb and uttering its commands in
the voice of an avenger, tho abject
little creature sccraod to bo stricken
with tho palsy, and only shrunk Into
hnlf his natural slzo, at tho same time
gathering hlmsolf into a limp heap
nnd crouching close to the earth.
Once, twice, thrlco was the command
given, tho only offect being to still
further dooreaso the slzo of the dog.
The sight became so comical at last
that Huttio burst out laughing, while
Dot, taking courage, wagged his
frightened little tall, nnd peaco was
res to rod.
"There's no use In trying to resist
fate any longer, I suppose," remarked
Annie, smiling faintly, as she lowered
hor suspended whip. "It's too lute to
go back, and wo'vo got to take the
dirty Ilttlo fellow to the picnic, nnd,
what's more, right in tho carriage
with us, for If wo should happen to
meet n large dog. or oven n good
sized oat, ho'd be devoured before our
very cyoa. There, ray dross Is nbout
as much soiled as it can bo already,
so I might as well finish it, so horo
goes," and, with much coaxing and
considerable dragging. Dot was
hoisted up la front and made to lie
down. All vexation, bowovor, was
soon forgotten in tho flowery beauties
of tho road along which thoy passed;
and when they drove through Mount
Hope's massive gateway, and gazed
off upon tho lqvely green slopes of
that silent city waiting for Its dead,
tho little troublos of llfo scorned to
bo lost In tho quiet reverie that fell
upon Do tli.
This is a strango preludo to our
picnic," remarked Annie, breaking
"Are you nfrald? Well. I shall
only drive through tho grounds. 1
want to show you some of the beau

What u lovely shout of water that Is

whlsporod Annlo, us sho clunir to
Hattiu's arm. "Oh! what was thut?"
"I hoard nothing."
"Thoro It is iiguin, Oh, do drive on
faster!" for just then a crackling
sound was heard In tho busho, whlla
Dot, as if to corroborato the suspi
cion, sot up a series of aggressive
barks, for which ho was particularly
distinguished whenevor ho found
himself ensconced In a placo of safety.
At the samo moment u hugo .New
foundland dog sprang out of the
thicket directly in front of Vi, who,
with a succession of wild plunges,
ran up a sloep ombankment besido the
road, and then with a sudden change
of course, ovorturned tho carriage,
and, breuklng looso, galloped away
at headlong speod, vanishing in a
cloud of duet.
When the occupants of the vehicle,
recovered tholr semes, which thoy
speodlly did, thoy found, to their sur
prise, that thoy wore still in the land
of tho living, but confined painfully in
tho very close quarters of the carriage
top, to extricate themselves from
which promised to be no easy task.
Bad they but occupied tbo front seat
it might not havo been a difficult mat
tar, was tho unploasing reflection.
After repeated attempts they resorted
to screams for help, but tho cemetery
being somo distance from tho mala
road no ono was likely to hear them,
and tho conviction gradually forced
itself upon tli-J unhappy prisoners that
no ono would know of their condition
until they should bo past holp. VI
would go back to hU former home, of
course) Barry would stay at the green
house, as Usual, thinking they had
changed their plans; papa would not
reach the grounds boforo twelve
o'clock, and they would both ba dead by
that time, they were sure, and hero thoy
abandoned thcnisolvcs to loud shrieks ,
and waits since there soomed nothing I
more to do. Thoir cramped position
was becoming unbearable, nnd matters
did begin to look serious.
liut in tho moanwhilo, what of Dot?
Tho girls remorabered seeing him
spring from the carrlngo just as the
final shock enmo. With a yelp of
mortal terror ho had forsaken them.
UIUECTLY IN FRONT or VJ.
and this seemed but the crowning act
of his despicable little life. Uut let
us not j id jo too hastily. Bad Dot
beon the regulation dug ot fiction he
would have fled home on the wings ol
the wind, bounded into Mrs. Thomp
son's presence, tore her boat dross
halt oil her, and by a series of intelli
gible bow-wows would havo announced
tho plain truth in n frantic mnnnar;
but the facts of the caio compel the
admission that Dot was not thut kind
of a dng. Bowovor, tho out which he
received from tho falling vohlole, to
gether with tho sight ot the huge
canlno in tho bushes, sorvud as an of
fcctlve incentive, making him fly the
see no ns scodlly as if urgeJ by nobler
motives than self-proorvatlon and
fear. Mrs. Thompson, being just In
tho state of mind to accept any un
usual manifestations as a token
ot oviL hailed Dot's strango ap
pearance in the exact manner
to be do I rod. Bis absence from the
barn, shortly after tho glrln' depart
ure, the out on his bend nnd tho ex
treme fatigue, could be accounted for
In only one way. Her presentiment ol
disaster was confirmed. Although the
stupid little follow bad only slunk off
Into tho woodshed, without a word of
explanation, tho evldenco was suf
ficient. In hor opinion; so In an in
credibly short space of tlmo Patrick
had harnessed the family horso, and
the anxious mothor was on her way to
tbo rescuo of tho captlvos. A light
rain having fallen tho night before, it
was easy enough to follow the fresh
tracks of tho carriage wheels along
the country road, and in due timo tbo
object of search was discovered. The
strong cries for help that issued from
tho wreck as tho sound of wheels ap
proached hod a healthy sound, and
did much to calm Mrs. Thompson's
fears. A few momonts luto Put's
strong arm lifted ono sldo of the tem
porary prison-house, and Annie
crawled painfully out, whllo Battle
camo tumbling after.
Iioth girls soomed qulto willing to
ride back behind tho "old poko," and
evon Dot received permission from his
young mistress to prolong his days In
definitely when sho heard what part
ho had taken In tho timely rosoue.
'What a door, blessed mothen you
are," said the repentant Annie, throw
ing her arms around her mother's
neck when they were at last alone to
gether. "You haven't onco said I
told you so.' "
"I thought somothlng else had said
that," was the quiet response. Annie
looked away, and acted us If sho had a
cold, wiping hor oyos in it fanhion that
boded well for future conduct.
Dot still leads u charmod life at the
Thompson mansion, vibrating at his
own sweet will between tho ditch and
tho sitting-room carpet, feeding on
Gunthor's best, and enjoying many a
dainty forbidden to brutes of nobler
breed and hlghor intelligence.

Four young minors, whoso names aro
not associated with tho city's lator
history. In May, 186 1, were wandering
along tho mala rnngo prospecting.
They had bocn uhabloto obtain claims
in Aider gulch, nnd their objective

a rich field of their own, was Soon

gulch where Helena stands to-day,
but though they found "color" thoy
rero not particularly pleased. Thoy
doubted if gold nns there In anything
llko pacing quantities. They pushed
ahead, therefore, crossed tho rnngo, i
and hnd gone as many as thirty miles
northward when they oncountorcd a
man who dispelled thoir dreams of
Koonsunl. He said tho good claims
woro all gone, and tho best of them
were poor nnyhow. This news wns a
great dlfcoursgemsnt to tho party.
They hadn rather dismal council, nnd
concluded thnt tho guloh they hnd
lately left was their only hope- Ac
cordingly, tho next morning
they turned around nnd camo bacls
to tho spot upon which they had
previously encamped. Thoy grimly

THE DLACK DEATH.
Ititvagrs tif tli ltllrnce In Itarnpe Dor
liiE tli Fourteenth Century,
This disease is bolluved to have
originated In Chinn. and took ltsnnme
from tho black spots which usually
appear on tho person of tbo sufferer.
These spots woro symptomatic of
putrid decomposition, nnd thoir ap
pearance wan nonrly always n fatal
sign, beginning with inflammatory
bolls and tumors, tho black death pro
duced stupor, tnontnl affections and
palsy of the tongue, the last gonurnlly
becomlzg black, ns if suffused with
blood. Tho characteristics of tho
disease wero burning, unsluknblo
thirst, pains In tho chest, spitting of
blood nnd fetid breath. This pestl
Ienco attacked Europe in a mild form
in ISX'J nnd may bo traced as moving
in tho wake of tho numerous caravan
routos from tho East Spreading from
tho north coast of the 11 lack sea to
Constantinople, and thenca to Italy, it
radiated from thero by many routes
over tho whole of Europe. Whorc
ever it appeared it committed such
fearful ravages as materially to check
tho increase of population; in China
tho deaths from this disease were esti
mated at 1.1.000,000, nnd tho rest of tho
East lost nearly 21,000,000, whilo a
moderate calculation puts tho loss in
Europo nt 25 000,000. London nnd
Venice lost 100.000 inhabitants each;
nnd Paris, Florence nnd Norwich half
that number apiece. It caused so
serious a decrease of population In this
country for a tlmo as to create a groat
dearth of workmen and laborers; and
In consequence a great rise in wages.
Prof. Thorold Itogcrs, who has in
vestigated tho economic bearings of
this dlsoaso very thoroughly, states
that the working classos wore nt no
time so woll off In England as during
tho period which Immediately followed
