"I expect you speak the sahib
who steals my window curtains.
When traveler come, no curtains

not wiflhlspe^k, what can do ?"
Having entirely exhausted the re
sources of Hifl English vocabulary
the dak bungalow khansamah paus
ed for breath and to see what effect
tho extent and variety of his ac
quaintance with our tonguo would
have upon me. The speech, how
ever, was a mere flash in the pan,
carefully committed to memory for
the occasion, and I had to have re
course to the vernacular to learn tho
history of his woes. It appeared
that there was an old sahib, a very
old sahib, who lived in a house in
the woods close by, and whenever
the khansamah put up new curtains
ho came and took them away, and
if tho khansamah tried tor prevent
him he got beaten, for he was a
very fierce ole* man and had been a
great bahad?r in his day.
"What did the man want the cur

"Oh, a very long time; perhaps a*
That was all that I could learn
about the matter. I told xhe khan
samah to lock up the curtains in
future and only to bring them out
when some traveler was in the
bungalow. I would speak to the sa
hib about it when I saw him, and
then I straightway forgot the whole
It was two or three mornings aft
erward that I was out for a stroll in
the woods soon after sunrise. It
was late autumn, and here in the
temperate Kulu valley the fierce In
dian sun does not reach its full in
tensity. There was a crisp fresh
ness in the air almost like an Eng
lish morning, and after the bare,
brown, sun steeped plains of tho
Punjab, from which I had lately
come, the lush green of the under
growth was cool and refreshing to
the eye. The large rosy cheeked
Kulu apples, gleamed through the
branches of the orchards. But for
the bite already latent in the slant
ing rays of the sun I might have
'been in Devonshire.
Presently I was aware of a curi
ous figure approaching me. It was
a tall old man with bent shoulders
and long white hair falling about
the collar of his coat. His clothes,
though neatly made, were of a cheap
white calico so largely in use amor g
the natives, and his shoes were of
untanned cowhide. His hat was
of plaited straw. Everything about
him was evidently homemade ex
cept one thing?round his waist
was wound a red cummerbund,
which gave him the air of a stage
brigand of venerable aspect.
"Ha, sir," said ho, following the
direction of my gaze as ho came
near, "the scarlet, the grand old
scarlet ! It reminds me of the good
old days when I wore her majesty's
.uniform in the Crimea before ever I
camo to this country." As I looked
closer I recognized the pattern of
the red rep of the curtains in the
dak bungalow. This was the khan
I thought the scarlet might be a
tender subject, so I spoke of ether
things. It appeared that he was
specially interested in the mineral
wealth of the valley.
"Thege is gold in those hills," he
said. ''There is gold at the sources
of this stream which flows beside
our feet. But I have not the means
to reach its fastnesses nor the ma
chinery to pluck it from the bowels
of the earth."
As he talked I had leisure to ob
serve him more closely. In a land
where tho fierce heat of tho sun
dries up the marrow of^a man's vi
tality and shortens his life by a
span, where at sixty even a strong
man is at the end of his life, he was
evidently the age he claimed. His
eye was already growing lusterless
and his step losing, the firm tread of
health. His hands were seamed
with toil, but' he had a fine head,
the arched brow and the inward
seeing eyes of the dreamer, and he
spoke like a man who, even in this
back water of life had been at pains
to keep himself abreast of the
world. How did such ? mon como
to be stranded in this wilderness?
Later I heard his story from
some of tho planters in the valley.
Twenty-seven years before he had
been my own predecessor as deputy
commissioner of the. adjoining dis
trict in British India. Then, o&,
now* ho had visions of tho mineral
.wealth of the country. He went
into partnership with a man who
cheated him ana sank all his mon
ey in ft mine that .Ti6vcr ?xibieu.
finally the partner asked for a sum
of money to realize the ore. Spencer
borrowed 40,000"* rupees from the
government treasury "for tho pur
pose. The partner fled with. the
money and left him unable to pay.
When the timo camo to account for
tho amount in the treasury, a
friendly commissioner warned him
of his impending arrest on a charge
of felony, and he had just tune to
; rise in the night with his wife and
- flee across tho border into this na
five state, whore he hod remain
On the night of their night he
end his wife had turned the catilo
out of the first shed they had come
to in order to rest for the night,
and in that shed they had now lived
for twenty-seven years.
From year's end to year's end
they neyer saw a white face except
ono of the few planters in the val
ley, an officiai like myself, who
crossed the border for a holiday, or
a stray globo trotter. Here among
a people distinct in color and alien
in speech and thought the cultivat
ed man and the delicately nurtured i
wocian had lived out their life
In this fertile valley the earth
produced all that was necessary to
sustain life. The natives gave them
of their kind, and, like the natives,
they lived mostly upon grain, rice
and other vegetable products. Oc
casionally a planter would send
them a barrel of apples or a case of
whisky. Spencer would accept such
presents' as he might have received
under happier circumstances, but
he never took money. The pride of
a gentleman still burned in him,
though it had no respect for dak
Spencer had lined the mud walls
of the cowshed with planks and
made a few rough tables and chairs.
Everything was scrupulously clean,
but the hut was almost as bare and
comfortless as it had been in its
original condition as a barn. He
kept a diary in which he would note
the date on /which the cuckoo was
first heard in the valley, how one
season the pear trees all burst into
bloom for the second time, an un
usual phenomenon, or how in an
other year the water channels on
the hillsides all dried up because
there was so little snow to melt, a
drought ensued and there was
scarcity in the land These were
now his life's interests.
Mrs. Spencer when I knew her
was a little fat woman with round
cheeks which were now getting
weather beaten, but she had brave
gray eyes. It was only necessary
to see the two together to know
that, through all the years of trial
that had passed over them a perfect
comradeship remained between them.
After all Spencer had his compen
sation. Whatever troubles he may
have endured, he had tho one great
blessing which so many men lack?
his life had not been left incom
plete or maimed by an unsympa
Once I found myself looking at
my wife with alien eyes and won
dering if I were thus outcast by so
ciety, and I deserved it, whether
she would cleave to me through
good report and through evil re
port as this old woman stood by
3Iy wife caught my eye and said:
"What is it, dear? What treason
are you thinking against me now?"
I told her.
"Traitor I" she whispered as she
nestled her hand into mine, and
then she sighed : "Poor old things I
I wish we could do something to
brighten their live3 for them. Next
Sunday is Michaelmas day. Let's
ask them both here to dinner. If s
not much, and even such as it is it
may only help to show them the
darkness of their ordinary lives?to
remind them of things that it would
be better to forget."
The eventful day arrived and
brought wiiii it Spencer in his sash
of the "grand old scarlet," while his
wife had a complete gown of the
same material. The excitement and
the wine brought a flush to the old
woman's cheeks whioh showed in
their red lines beneath the skin
like cracks in very old china.
The dinner was over, and the
pair insisted on giving us a song in
return for our hospitality. They
stood up hand in hand, and the
song that they sang was "Auld

VENICE, THE UNIQUE.
The Beautiful City at Night Looks
Llko a Vast Panorama.
.Venice has been sentimentalized
by tho Genntin and by the young
lady of all nations. Lovers have
found its moonlight and its water
more expressive than tho moonlight
and tho water of any other chore.
Byron, Musset, Wagner, Browning,
havo loved and died there. It has
been painted by every painter. It
has become a phrase almost as mean
ingless as Arcadia.
And indeed it is difficult to think
of Yenice as being quite a real place,
its streets of water as being exactly
real streets, its gondolas as being no
moro than the equivalent of han
soms, its union of those elsewhere
opposed sentiments of the sea, the
canal, the island, walled and tower
ed land, as being quite in the nat
ural order of things.
I bad had my dreams of Venice,
but nothing I had dreamed was
quite as impossible as what I found.
That first night as I looked at tho
miraculous, many colored facade of
St. Mark's, tho pale, faintly tinged
marble of the*doges' palace, I seem
ed, after all, not to have left Lon
don, but to bo still at the Alhnm
bra, watching a marvelous ballet,
and, as it pleases me to bo, in the
very midst of it, among the glitter
ing "properties/' knocking at every
step against some fragment of deli
cately unreal scenery, losing nono of
tho illusion by being so close to its
framework. The doges' palace look
ed exactly like beautifully painted
canvas, as if it wero stretched on
frames and ready to be shunted into
the wings for a fresh "set" to come

In a certain skirmish an officer
got a slight scratch on tho leg. Tho
wound was a matter of great glory
to him, and ho nursed it through
after days, growing lamer with cv
ery fear that the memory of his
bravery might pass but of mind.
One day late in life as he sat
nursing his leg and pondering the
glorious past a young man visiting
the family for the first time ap
proached and sympathetically re

inexpressible solemnity, "I am

"No," with rebuking sternness;
"I have not been riding."
"A slip down on the pavement?"
"No, sir," with actual ferocity.
"Perhaps, then, you have sprain

With a painful slowness the old
man lifted his pet leg in both hands,
set it carefully down upon tho floor,
rose slowly from his chair and, look
ing down upon the unfortunate
youth with mingled pity and wrath,
burst forth in the sublimity of rage:

Kept His Eye on the Windows.
Most businesses are distinguished
nowadays by keen competition, and
I heard a story the other day which
shows that the humble occupation
of window cleaning is not exempt
from it. In a certain studio in the
city a window cleaner got a contract
job to clean the windows by the
year. He wasn't so punctual about
the cleaning operation as he was
about drawing his pay, nnd after
bearing with bis eccentricities for
awhile ho was sacked, and another
man got the job.
Things went better for a time,
but one day the ousted man stuck
his head in at the door of the stu
dio and yelled, "Am I to get the
job to clane thim winders?"
"No," was the reply ; "we bave a
windoY?* cleaner already."
"No, you hain't," was shouted
back; "he fell four stories this
mornin' at'Briggate, and he'll clane
winders no more."
It turned out that the statement
was true, and tho enterprising man
was reinstated in his old job on the
understanding that he was to pay
strict attention to both extremities
of the contract.?Glasgow Times.

several years ago there was a minister
)f the Gospel in his neighborhood who
was noted fpr his piety. About two
years ago there came a ehange, and
the minister, whom we will call Rev.
Mr. Jones, was transferred to a dif
ferent part of tho state. Only tho
day before he arrived in Memphis
there had been another change, and
Mr. Jones was given the chaplaincy of
tho state penitentiary.
That day, the Memphis visitor re
lates he happened to run across ono
of the minister's old parishioners, aud,
thinking ho would bo interested in the
latter's good fortune, said:
"Say. Smith, did you hear that Rev.
Mr. Jones had been sent to the peni
"Good for him," responded Smith,
laconically, "I always thought he
would get thero some day. He was
always such an all-fired rascal when
ho was around hero, I know ho would
wind up behind the bars."
