A gentleman living in the suburbs

annoyed by trespasseis who would vis

large quantites of apples and other
fruit. One rMorning two mon passing
along the rond sEw a man lying under
a tree in the orchard, and near the
roadside. ie was covered w ith blood
and his clothing reduced to tattera.
At first. it was supposed that the man
wits dead, but moans were heard, and
the men when ovyjr to ascertain ivba't

almost exhausted and unable to move
himself. They procured water, and
after giving the injured man a drink,
he recovered sufficiently to toll his

found thp.t one armu and one leg Were
paralized. Ile did not call for assiis

aind concluded that he would remiain

His tormentors persisted in licking
