With movement like to grab
bing a leaping hare the ruffian
caught her hand.
" Tis like to all other hands,"
she saidj "then why hold it?"
k "Most beautiful thing I ever
saw' grunted he.
"Then is my face transcended
in the beauty contest," -and her
eyes frolicked amusedly.
"No, thy face is like the silver
jnoon," said Mr. Slpw-wit, with
effort at poesy.
"Then am I a moon-face. Dud
ley you wound my heart. Ah
me!"
Split me, if I didn't nearly hoot
aloud at her hocus-pocus and at
his boorish effort to stand for a
dandy. She said fol-de-rols of his
cleverness, whjch -He took for
bible truth. Then suddenly he
clappejf a paw on each of her soft
cheeks and nearly crushed her
Jips with his. Lucky for Dud's jaw
that wasn't in that room !
She dangled him at her petti
coats till dusk. Then:
"Oh, the night, the outlaws!
They will take me. I dare not go
home alone. Have yeoman you
can trust with me?"
''Myself, at your service."
They rode out. Giles and my
lads, in league with Sally, lying
in wait, got them in Southcombe
forest, with hardly a blow from
Dud. To Forest inn the horses
scampered, where Sally told how1
she had played the decoy and he
had kissed her. Giles, man of my
own heart, sent for the dish-wipe.
She came.
"Kiss her!" yelled Giles, put
ting point to Dud's heart. ,
, The wretch was made to smack
as if it were delicious, while the
boys roystered.
Next day Giles offered life for
life, and a fair exchange of pris
oners was made. Thus did Sally
win me free from the noose.
THE CITY.
By Berton Braley.
There's a whole lot of bad in it,
A whole lot of good in it,
Sad things and glad in it,
Scarce understood in it.
Honor and truth in it,
Evil and lies in it,
Age and blithe youth in it,
Fool folks and wise in it.
Folks multifarious
in one locality, -Aims
that are various,
Waste and frugality;
Haughty and curious,
Cruel and pitiful,
True souls and spurious
All in a cityful.
Loving and hating much,
Working and worrying:
Wooing and mating much,
Hustling and hurrying.
Cities oh, pharisee
Are but the test of us,
And it is there I see
Folks like the rest of us.

The Thames river remained
frozen over for nearly four
months in 1683-1684. Bring it to

SOME people the . LESS one
