" No, I won't drink with you t
day, boys," said a drummer to^seve
al companions, as they settled dou
in the smoking car and paased ti
bottle. "The fact is, boys, I tm
quit drinking-I've sworn off." E
was greeted with shouts of laught<
by the jolly crowd around him ; the
put the bottle under his nose and ii
dulged in mzuy jokes at his expenai
but he refused to drink, and was ratl
er serious about it. " What's tl
matter with you, old boy ?" sang 01
* one. "If you've quit drinking, somi
thing's up; tell us what it ie." "Wei
boys, I will, though I know you'
laugh at me. But I'll tell you, a
the same. I have been a drinkin
man all my life, ever since I w<?
married, as you all know I love whv

quit it. For seven years not a da

what do you a appose it was ?" 1
pair of baby shoes, little things wit]
the bottoms only a trifle soiled, as i
they had been worn only once o
twice. 'Where did you get these ?
asked the pawnbroker. 'Got 'em a

intelligent face and the manner of i

.My-my wife bought them for om

the shoes back to your wife; the ba

broker. 'No s-she won't, because
because she's dead. She's lying al
home now-died last night.' As he
said this the poor fellow broke down

cried bitterly like a child. "Boys,'
said the drummer, "you can laugh ii

A Pretty Lesson.
A remarkable bird story is related
by Thomas Prince, of Carson River
Nev. A pair of robins built a n<-8
on a fence near his house, and in a
bush not far away a pair of ca'birdR
had their home. The yonng in norh
nests were hatched about the same
^ time ; but after several days the cat
" ^ birds were seen no more, having
probably been shot by boys. The
yoong catbirds were evidently starv
ing. When the robins came with a
worm or beetle for their young, they
always alighted on the top rail of the
fence before hopping down to their
nest Every time that a robin thus
alighted the little catbirds opened
their mouths, thrust op their heads
and began to cry. They were begging
"-to'the beet of their ability for food.
The robins appeared to understand
the appeal, and began feeding the
. hungry little catbirds. They did not
do what they had undertaken by
halves. Every evening the female
robin sat on her own nest and warmed
her young, while the male robin took
the nest of the catbirds. In this way
both broods were reared, the little
orphans growing op as strong and
. lively as though they bad been cared
for by their own parents.

Unsuccessful Attempt to Capture Two
Cubs-An Encounter in Greene
ELLENVILLE. March, 14 -The hop
pole cutters and bark peelers in dif
ferent parts ot thia county are be
ginning early to talk of the presence
of bears in unusual numbers in the
mountains. Sbandnkip, Hurley,
Woodstock and Hardeubergh town
ships set-m to be the chosen field.
They have emerged with their young
from their winter " sleeping" places
ne veril weeks before they are usually
looked for, notwithstanding that the
snow is .still deep in tLe woods. The
Neversink region sends in the story
that a bark peeler attempted to cap
ture a p iir of cubs a f??w days ago,
snugly stowed away in a hollow
stump. He took them up in his arms
and was hurrying away with them,
when the mother appeared. Think
ing that he might out run her and
reach a nous-' that was only distant
about half a mile, the b<rk:peeler
kept the cubs in his^ arms and ran.
Toe old bear gained on him rapidly,
however, and he put down one of the
cubs, hoping that the mother wo ld
stop with it long enough to allow
him to get beyond her reach with the
other oue. She t ped, bot only an
instant. Se .i only one of bei
cuba had been ideaeed she rushed
after h m again. He saw that it
would be impossible for him to reach
the house before the mother would be
upon bim, and he dropped the other
cub. This satisfied the old bear. A
party of armed men subsequently
went in search of the bears, but had
not captured them at last accounts.
The Woodstock country is excited
over the adventures of four men and
a boy with a she bear and three cubs
on Friday last. The party was hunt
i g r bbifs near the Greene c unty
liT.e Thi* boy fired at. a labbit he
h?td scared from a bruah pile, and at
the sound of the gun a large bear
c.me out from behind the rco's of a
fallen tree. Site was followed by
three cub0, and ru?bed directly at j
tho boy. The bear was only a few
step? aw iy, and the bey fired the un"
<hic?*rgr?i h.<md of his gun at ber,
but . - ir was io-ided with fine shot
r-b? -fret was only to increase the
bj>:rV Jury. T>he boy ran and shouted
'.>r h*-!p. The four men appeared in
MroetofNve the boy, who was being
closely pressed by the enraged bear.
Tb'-gu: s of'he p-trty contained noth
ing bur fit;eshi)t, but the men attacked
the animal. The cubs huddled to
gethjir a short distance behind their
mother. W:iile the men were firing
i -i to the old bear, the boy carried
-.way two of the cubs. The mother
discovered the loss of her cubs at
nr.c*?. and broke away after their cap
ri;r. Sb.., had received nine heavy
charges of shot, however, and wae|
.mortally wounded, and fell dear? be
t?re she had gone many steps.

Uurltnffton ITrnvkej/f .
There never was but one home es
tablished without a motherin law.
And that seems to have been a mis
t-ike. That mother in law-less home
walked right into trouble, as the
"parks fly upward. It went light
out into the orchard, and ordered
fruit lor two, aud got all the rest ol
us into more trouble than all the gond
mother in-law of to day can ever get
us out nf. Away with all this out

Have you no sense of gratitude, young
man? Do you love your wife? Oh,
most devotedly. Well, theu, where
would ycu have got your wife had it
not been for your mother in law ?
And another thing, young mr.n.
