admiration. 'Electric bells and all

Quitter as if it was brown paper."
Mr. Thnpany's state of mind be
came less complacent than ever. Ile
had done his duty to his client in in
juring this desperado's conviction,
but he began to wonder whether a
man could not do his duty too well.

lii> house was, how lov> the back
??arden wall, how close the balconies
to the ground, how rusty the front
door chain and how insecure the
window fastenings. There was, how
over, one consolation, he had six
months' start of Mr. Bonshaw.
Mr. Timpany's politeness to the
policeman whose beat embraced his
liou.se and who had once been seen
kissing his housemaid was surpris
ing, having regard to the indigna
tion lie had evinced when some time
previously he had been informed of
the housemaid incident.
The six months of his incarcera
tion did not speed quite so quickly
for Joe Benshaw as for Mr. Tim
Joe was averse to labor of any
kind, more especially to the hard
variety. He had, however, ample
time and opportunity for medita
tion on what ne considered the vin
dictive wickedness of Mr. Timpany
and the means for its requital.
Artist as ho was in his own Ene,
in thc operation contemplated he
meant to excel himself. He would
not hurry over it. He would bide
his time. Everything comes, he re
flected,, to the man who waits. He
would wait on Timpany.
At last came the hour when ho
stepped forth a free mom-anyway
for a time He began to look about
for occupation, not work. He had
had six months at that, and if he
had cared for honest work outside
prison walls it would have been dif
ficult to find.
One, two, three months since the
expiration of Benshaw's sentence
had expired, and Mr. Timpany be
gan to imagine that he had forgot
ten his promise and to sleep soundly
of nights. He even ventured occa
sionally to bring home valuable doc
uments of title and securities in his
black bag and to once moro believe
in the truth of the adage that an
Englishman's house is his castle.
But one night while Mr. Timpany
was wrapped in gentle sleep ana his
pajamas a thin streak of white light
glimmered for an instant along his
back garden. Bendigo, who " slept
with one eye open, fancied ho
caught -a glimpse of something that
ought not to b% there and emitted.'a
deep warning growl.
Much to ms surprise, as if by
magic, a savory piece of horseflesh,
just sufficiently underdone to suit
the palate of so dainty a canine epi
cure, fell within a yard of his nose.
With a snorting growl that was
his usual expression of delight the
g rose J nd sniffed it. Then ho
licked it, and it tasted; even moro
savory than it smelled. ^
Bendigo bolted it and, seeing no
morsels lying about, turned to re
gain his kennel, but ere he could
reach it his limbs stiffened, and he
lolled over without a groan stone
A few minutes later a marvelous
centerbit w.? running its way si
lently but surely through Mr. Tim
pany's iron shutters.
Before long the shutter had been
quietly pusheC open, replaced, and
Joe Kenshaw was seated in the
breakfast room, around which his

Then, his list shoes making not
the? slightest sound, he crept into a

awkwr.nl furniture like this in their
'ouscs! It's only out o' aggeravation
to give folks unnecessary trouble
over their work."
But at last the hinges gave way to
the brutal but silent attacks of tho
jimmy where the lile had bitten and
gnawed, and Joe, quickly forcing
the inner drawers, turned his bulls
eye on thc contents.
"Well!" he said, and then he
swore. "Arter all, nothin' but a pile
o' dirty parchment not worth a
crown !" And he angrily turned over
the bundles of deeds, which repre
sented tens of thousands of pounds.
But as the last drawer slid open a I
chuckle*- escaped him. There lay a |
bundle of crisp Bank ol" England
notes which Mr. Timpany had re
ceived on thc completion of a con
veyancing mailor after office hours
on behalf of his client too lato to
pay into the bank.
Stufling Hie notes into his pocket,
he gathered up his tools and pre
pared to depart. To his groat joy he
saw upon the table a bottle of port
wine and a tumbler.
"Oh, ain't 'c kind," he solilo
quized, "to perwide refreshment as
well as amusement? Ile might 'a'
left it in a tureen, an' really I don't

And, taking up the bottle, Mr.
Benshaw placed it to his lips and
drank and drank until he had
drained it to the dregs.
Beplacing the bottle on the table,
he picked up his tools. He was a bit
tired after his exertions, though he
had not felt it so unmistakably as
Ile slid into a chair to rest for a

there had been more than half a

"This won't do," he muttered. ?I

And there five hours later Mr.
Timpany, trotting down in his

A LEGEND OF THE FLOOD.
Tiw Tradition Handed Down by the

All the northern const Indians,

story a local coloring, but the plot

The creator of thc universe, Mes

in the arrangement of tho land and
water. The earth persisted in sink

upon a plan which worked very well.
Taking a long lino of twisted walrus
hide, he tied it around thu dry land
and fastened the other end to the
corner of tho -moon. Everything

offended at tho action of mankind
and in a lit of anger om< day seized
his great stone knife and with a
mighty hack severed the rope of
twisted skin. Immediately the land
bogan to sink into thc sea. Tho
angry waves rushed in torrents up
the valleys, and in a short time
nothing was visible except tho peak
of a very high mountain.
All mankind perished in the
whelming waters with the exception
of two, a man and his wife, who
were out fishing in a big canoe.
These two succeeded in roaching tho
top of thc mountain and proceeded
to make themselves nt home. Hero
they remained for some time until

How to Measure a River.
Anybody can measure approxi
mately the breadth of a river with
out a surveyor's compass or any me
chanical means whatever. The man
who desires to make tho experiment
should place himself at the edge of
the stream, then stand perfectly
still, face thc opposite bank and
lower the brim of his hav until it
just cuts thc opposite bank. Then
let him put both hands under Iiis
chin to steady his head and turn
slowly 'round until the hat brim
cuts some point on tho level ground
behind him. Mark the spot where
the hat brim cuto tho ground, then
paco off the distance, and it will be
found about the breadth of thc river.
