I 6at in Bijah's store,, with the
mingled odors of calico print and
dried apples, coffee and the straw
that crockery is jpacked in fighting
for supremacy in my notice.
Bijah's broadj back was turned
to me, and he w^is sorting the.day's
mail with comments that made mo

fur th' schulema'am. Now, there's
han'writin' fer ye ! Putty as she is
an' jest as simple like."
The latch clicked, and the door
opened. Bijah looked over his
shoulder and grin?d. I was shut
out from sight of more than the vis
itor's legs by a slack lino of dan
cling towels, aprons and socks, br
they were steady, reliable looking
legs, straight and strong, clothed in
heavy boots and blue overalls.
Bijah neither turned nor laid
down his letters. He stood there
grinning, and whether the person in
the doorway was grinning also or
plotting my assassination in pupto
minic I was none the wiser.
The heavy boots shuffled and
turned obout, stepped outside, and
the door shut. Bijah chuckled to
himself ard looked back to his let

The papers went into a separate

squinted at the letter he . was hold

The latch clicked again, the door
opened, and the same pair of legs
appeared in the very same spot
where I had seen them before.
Presumably the unseen grinned
also, for there was too much of
Bijah's grin not to be offensive, if
it were otherwise.
"What ye want?"
"We don't keep that, or ef we do
we're jest ao?t uv it."
The big boots turned about slow
"Sure ye don't want no lamps,
are ye?" > :
"Gals go with'em'?" ?
"Not in this shop." i
"That settles it as fur as I'm
concerned."' And he went away
and closed the door again. *
Bijah looked after him and i
chuckled. - i
"Whafs the joke, Bijah,?"
"Don't know &$ I'd orter say 1
an'thing ao?tside, but ye know how 1
it io, Mr. Carson. Ye never seem J
no stranger." a

He came around the end of the a
counter and sat on an unopened t
sugar barrel, with his legs crossed t
and his rough bands' clasped around '
his knee. s
"Th* ole man; Jeremiah Wilson, ?
that I mentioned-back a spell, bo's 1
a Tartar. He don't know nothin* ?

she jest gin in ter him. ,
"There wus one galr-Mame her 0i

a sight uv her. She wa'n't no more c<

with her. . T

is. He runs th' sawmill up th'

"Jim Lane is th* darnedest good

allus got a good word an' a pleasant

"He took it offul hard abaout
Marne, au' he reg*ly got mopy an'

then he got his second wind, an' he
tried every witch way ter play it on

putty stuffy, too, an' she declared
she'd never 'pose her father, an'
Bijah got off the barrel to sell a
couple of candy balls to a rosy
faced little lass who was so short
as to bo visible under the slack line
and resumed as she closed the door
of the shop.
"Th' hull village knew all abaout
it, an' they talked it up early an'
late. Th' gals, they wasn't slow ter
say what they'd do ef they was in
her place, an' th' Bugler took a
hand, so ter speak, an' nearly drove
th' ole man wild. But Miss Peter

that Mame was right ter mind her
" 'Look a-herc,' says Jim, 'ain't I

so, but he certainly didn't orter ask
Mame tor take th' responsibility nv

Bijah chuckled and changed his,]
legs -and clasped the other knee.
'"Twasn't very long after that

Self Murder In Hot Weather.
It has. .long been a matter of ob
servation that a protracted hot spell
is always marked by many suicides.
The vital forces run low in hot
weather, the brain is frequently af
fected by the heat, physical weak
ness and prostration arc common
ind life loses many of its attrac
tions. The result is an increase of
suicide, which diminishes as the
^mperature falls, the atmosphere
secomes purified and- vitality, ener

Th? Knot* That Are Tied For Worse,

Nothing is more beautiful than
tho old age of a man and wife who
have grown dear to each other by
the manifold experiences of life.
So nothing is more grim and hid

long years have heaped up bitter

MEETING AN ANACONDA.
Fxperlenco of a New York Lawyer In
the Amazon Valley.
A New York lawyer, who has
traveled a great deal, had an en
counter with an anaconda, which ho
describes as follows:
"I was riding ahead of my party
along a narrow road in ino. Amazon
valley. My mount was a large^white
mule, whose only ambition in life
seemed to bo to bite and kill?every
one he encountered. ? do not-know

the thoroughfare looked more like
a verdant tunnel than a country

j dropped his cars and turned his
head about. Thinking that this was
evidence of a desiro on his part to
bite my leg, I was about to whip
him "when I noticed that he was
shivering all over in an ague.
"I looked up and down tho road,
and then I shivered. Not more than
sixty feet away a huge snake, half
coiled around a bough which pro
jected over the road, lay swinging
and looking at me with a glare that
was not at all assuring. I had left
my rifle behind on a baggage mule
and had nothing with which to
fight save a hunting knife. I drew
this promptly from the scabbard
and with the courage worthy of a
better cause used it as a spur upon
my luckless steed, which turned

Colora Produced In Iron.
Investigation as to the cause of
the production of colors in temper
ing iron satisfactorily eIiows it to
be -duo to the formation of thin
films of ^xido on the surface of tho
metal when it is heated in the pres
ence of air. It also appears that
the oiido so produced is practically;
transparent, first because the se
quence of colors is what would be
expected in films of a transparent
substance when the thickness of the
films gradually increases?also be
cause of observation on the reflected
light, the color of which varies
somewhat at different angles?but
chiefly because it is found that on
increasing the temperature a little
above the point necessary to produce
dark blue the color gradually dis
appears and the surface, though
covered with more oxide, becomes
almost golorless again. The colors
being Tthe result of oxidation, it-is
i probable that the nature of thejsur
face to bo heated, its freedom from
any soiling and the length of time
during which it is heated must exert
a considerable influence on the shade
