My interest began to weaken.
Miss Sallie was safe, and the dog
was locked up. What was a blood
hound to me? If the savage mon
ster died, so much the better.
I walked off to tho stable. A
ride over the prairie was not to be
missed on such a morning, and
there would be a chance of riding
back with Sallie. .
But I was doomed to disappoint
ment. My horse was lame. It did
not take long to convince me that
somebody had been riding him tho
Just then Pedro came inx sight.
The ugly little Mexican gave a start
when lie saw mo and looked away.

lie looked so viciously mean and
so impudent that I gave him a light
cut with my whip and told him to
get out of my sight. He muttered
something and slunk off. There was
j other animal that I cared to ride,
and I made up my mind to walk.
I had left the ranch several hun
dred yards behind me when I turned
and looked back. ? Even at^thst dis-^
tante I could plainly recognize Pe

tle cabin back of the kitchen and

"Looking at the man eater," I
said to myself. ^It is a good thing
the beast is locked up."
The bracing morning air and the
level prairie stretching out before
me for miles tempted me to take a
long walk. A long way off I could
see a hill, the only one in all that
flat country. Why not climB it and
see what was on the other side ? Per
haps Sallie was over there.
So I walked on with swinging
strides for a couple o* miles.
Suddenly I came to a dead halt.
''That sounds like the man eater's
bark !" T. exclaimed. Again I heard
it anu stopped a moment.
For an instant my muscles were
paralyzed. I was absolutely unable
A thousand horrible thoughts
rushed into^my mind.
If this mad bloodhound vas on.
my track my case was hopeleis. I
could not get back to the ranch.
There was not a tree in sight, and
the hill was still miles away.
What was to be done ?
I summoned all my strength and
made a run at the top of my speed.
I kept on as long as I could and
then paused to rest and listen.
The man eater was coming m
way, bv?t not much faster than
I resumed my flight. Would a
mad dog have his usual keen in
stinct about him? Would he pur
sue the trail or become confused
and give it m^)?
These - Noughts inspired me^with
a faint hope. If tine dog's slow
progress enabled me to reach the
hill, where there was timber, I could
climb a tree, or possibly he would
be missed, and his master would
ride in pursuit.
From one point where there was a
gentle rise in the prairie I could
see in the distance a moving speck.
It was the man eater steadily fol
lowing my trail ! t
My surmise turned out to be part
ly correct. The animal seemed to
be at fault. He would stop and run
back a few 'yards and branch off
aimlessly in every direction.
But this did not last long. After
a series of eccentric movements the
hound would get on my -track again
and rush forward.
He was gaining, and my chances
of reaching the hill began io look
For the next fifteen minutes I
dii somo good/running,-but when I
turned to cast a backward glance I
could see the dog intoro plainly than
ever. / _ -
One thing encouraged me ; he did
not appear to see me, but blundered
on in a clumsy, dazed sort of way.
There were no streams^' to cross,
nothing that wouid throw, him off
the scent. I had no weapon, only a
small pocketkuifc, and. a fight with
a mad dog was out of the question.

It was a minute or two before he

With a tremendous"" effort I broke
forward-on my last run. This time
I would reach the bill or turn at
the list moment and die, making a
vain effort to choke the monster.
The blood-rushed to my head, and
I could hardly see anything as I
darted on at the top of my speed.
The hound was rapidly making
headway and at last seemed to havo
as in view. A glance over my shoul
der showed him not a hundred yards
Everything was in a whirl. Some- i
body was riding out from behind
the hill and coming my way. The
hat, the riding habit?I could not
be mistaken?it was Sallie Bolton.
But my race was nearly run. Even
with help in sight I could bear up
no longer. The girl was riding like
the wind, and I could see that sho
had a lasso in one hand.
I knew that this cattle queen, as
tho cowboys called her, could do
anything almost with a lasso, but
would sne get there in time ?
The man eater came bounding on,
and Sallie rode straight at him like
a little thunderbolt. She whirled
the lasso over and over around her
head, and?but it was too late. I
could hear the dog panting behind

short by the appearance of a ligHt

neighbors, who offered to take mo

I when I reached the house her father
was waiting to congratulate me upon
my escape. "It was Pedro's work/'
he said. "He unlocked the door and

Undoubtedly it was Pe&ro. He
had been trying to pay me back.

He Meant the Bird.
Some time ago a man got a curi
ous present from a sea captain. It
was a fine specimen of the bird
which the sailors call the 'laughing
jackass/' and he was not a little
proud of it. As he was carrying it
home he met a brawny Irish navvy,
who stopped him and asked :
"Phwat kind of burrd is that,'
"That's a laughing jackass," ex
plained the owner genially.
The' Irishman, thinking he was
being made fun of, was equal to the
occasion and responded with a twin

PHILOSOPHY OF LAUGHING, j
Optlmi&m a Supreme Sedative?Worry I
Is Bad For tho Health.
Again a word about the philoso
phy of laughter. When the system
is nerved, and is making conscious or
unconscious effort, the nerves that
tighten the walla of tho blood ves
sels are hard at work, and pressure
in the arteries is great; but a hearty
laugh, as Brucke's interesting exper
iments show, tends to bring the
blood over into the veins where there
is no pressure, relieves the arteries
and brings the exquisite sensations
of relaxation of rest. This is fa
vored even by the attitude of a
hearty laugh. To draw in a fuir*
breath, throw back tho head, open
the mouth and let the expiration
"gurgle forth with sonorous inter
mittence," to quote a phrase, from
the "Philosophy of Laughter," and
to do it again and again slowly
throws off the chains of the world's
?~real taskmaster and brings us back,
ack toward the primeval paradise,
where there was nothing out joy,
and sin and e or row were unknown.
Once more, optimism is one of
the supremo sedatives. There are
men who worry because the sun will
sometimes go out ar d the earth grow
dead and cold like the moon, or tho
coal measures be exhausted, or the
fertile areas of the world dry up
because of the denudation of for
ests, but the philosophy of health is
that the best things have not hap
pened; that man's history has only
1'ust begun; that, on the whole, there
?as been steady progress; that in
virtue, comfort, knowledge, arts, re
ligion and nearly if not quite all the
essentials of the further develop
ment of man, faith in human nature
and belief in a future better than
the present is the conclusion of ev
ery philosophy of development and
evolution. ^It is our good fortune
to live in a day of the evolution of
evolution, and this is giving a new
meaning to the very word progress
and makes us feel that the world is
rational and beneficent to the core
and that whore conscious purpose
and effort fail wo sink back into ev
erlasting arms. This is a sanifying
point of view authorized now by
both science and religion and is a
good psychic state to sleep on or in
which to enter the great rest.?Ains

who said to him at parting, "I will
call for you tomorrow."
"I will thank you not to call," re
plied Robinson. "I would rather
not see anything else with you, and
I will tell you frankly why. I came
to Paris to enjoy myself, and that
enjoyment needs the accompaniment
of sympathy with others. Now, you
dislike everything and find fault
with everything. You see nothing
which you do not find inferior to
what you have seen before. This
may be all very true, but it makes
me uncomfortable. So I shall be
glad to see you in London, but no
more in Paris."

MAXIMS OF A WITTY ABBE.
A Notable Eighteenth Century Figure
!" Trench Society.
Some of the maxima and anecdotes
of Nicholas de Chamfort, the witty
abbe, who during the latter half of
the eighteenth centhry was such a
notable figure in French society,
have been translated by Mr. W. G.
Hutchison and published by a Lon
don firm. Here are some samples
of the abbe's wit as rendered by tho

pains of which sleep eases us every
sixteen hours. Sleep is but a pallia

What Causes Fogs.
I Fogs are, generally speaking,
caused by the precipitation of tho
moisture of the atmosphere. They
are formed when a warm stratum
of atmosphere comes in contact with
a cold stratum or with apportion of
the earth's surface, as a hill, by*
which it is cooled so that it can no
longer hold as much moisture in so
lution as before. This causes the
frequent fogs in mountain regions.
When a cold stratum of air comes
over a moist, warm part of tho
earth's surface, a fog is also formed.
This is the cause of tho miBts that
appear over lakes, rivers and marsh
es in the evening, since the water is
then warmer than the atmosphere
above it. The blackness and density
of London fogs are caused by the
simple fact that the mist formed in
the upper air mingles with the as
cending clouds of smoke from hun
dreds of thousands of chimneys and,
descending, brings the smoke with it
and settles like a pall above tho
buildings and in the streets of tho

What a Dozen Is.
The child is taught at school that
a dozen means twelve every time,
but when the child grows into a
man he finds that a dozen is a very
elastic term. A baker's dozen is
thirteen, and so is a publisher's or a
news agent's in many parts of the
world. In some sections a dozen of
fish means twenty-six, and there are
other anomalies of this kind. But
to find a dozen indicating anything
from two to fifty it is necessary to
go to the earthenware trade.
Here the size and weight of ar
ticles decide how many make a doz
en, and in jugs, bowls, plates and
so on there are two, four, six, eight
or mere to the dozen. A dozen com
posed of twelve articles is a very un
usual thing in the wholesale pottery
trade, and as a result there are few
clerkships more difficult to hold
than in this line. I tried the work
once and foiled ignoiuiuiously. To
havo to find tho cost of 500 articles
at so much a dozen when that dozen
may mean anything is a very diffi
cult task until a man gets thorough
ly used to it.?St. Louis Globe-Dem
Superstitions About Crows.
There are perhaps few who have
not heard of crows that "one is
lucky, two is unlucky, three is
health, four is wealth, five sickness
and six death." The unluckiness of
one living crow is of ancient date,
since the Greeks believed that if
such a bird appeared at a wedding
breakfast there would be a divorce,
to avert which all roared out,
"Maiden, scare away the crow!"
But of far greater antiquity was the
belief that if . the one crow were
dead the evil portent also perished,
since, according to Horus Apollo, it
signified extreme old age or a very
long life. According to what Hesi
od tells us, the crow lives nine times
as long as a man.
Origin of the Word "Money."
In tracing out the origin or deri
vation of the word "money" you
find it is from tho Roman word
"Moneta," because the first regular
coins of the Romans were "struck"
in the temple of Juno Moneta. The
word "coin" is no doubt from the
Latin "cuneus," meaning a die or
stamp. Many coins are so called
from their original weight, as the
English "pound," the French "li
vre" and tho Italian "lira."
