AN ABLE-BODIED LIAR.
He Tolls a Yarn the Like of Whloh Bas

Among the recently invigorated liar of
the town is one who has just returned from
a session with o'tone In Colorado, say the
Omaha World Herald. It was his first trip
through tho mountains and he was much
affected by the feats of engineering skill
there manifested, as witness the following:
"I hod heard of the curve on the Pennsyl
vania, where according to tho time-card
schedule, the engineer is obliged to lean out
of his cab und excliuuge tobacco with the
brakeman on tho rear end, so as to give the
passengers something to talk about, and
now I believe il. There was an old, honest,
horny-handed miner rodo over the roud out
of D"nvcr with mo und he told me several
things. Once while we were being jorked
around the edgo of the mountains and could
look out from under tho roots of our hair at
the track opposite in the valley he told me
a tolo. Said he :
" 'That yero track down yua Is the one
we're onto, but we won't tech It tot an
hour. We run up tho ravine an' down the
sido of tho mountain an' double back.
Down thar Is wlior' Jim Lylo saved the pay
master o' tlio roud.' ,
"Howl' 1 inquired.
" 'It were this way: Tho paymaster's car
was bitchtd onto tho hind end o' the freight
train, bis own engine bavin' had a little
trouble with her runnin' gear an' beln'
abandoned fee awhile up the road. Well,
the train was snorllu' and crawlln' aroun'
tho mountain, when all of a suddon the
back brakeman comos a runnin up an' yell
'""Pull out! Full out! Thoy's a gang o'
rustlers hus caught the engine an' are
" 'Well, Jim Lylo noticed that He seen
at wunxt that the engine hud been fixed up
an' that to rustlers had took ber to ketch,
bim an' git the dust iu tbo paymaster's car,
so lie pulkd out right pcurt an' tried to
outraco 'em, but it wan't no go. They kop
"JTreity soon be struck the beginnln' o'
this ycre curve. He didn't slack a breath
an' the conductor come rushin'up an'bel
Icred: " "Fer God's sko, what kin we dot If
we run this we'll climb a rail."
" ' "Sullright," said Jim Lyle.. "If I cal
clato riglitiy that car's saved," an' he gave
her another pull out an' just as we reached
right hero lie jerked her wide open. Then
we see what was what Lookln' back 1,
bcin' on the train, seen the la.it coach go up
in the air, there was a Jerk, an' away over
Into the canyon she went.'
"'Well, whore docs the salvution of the
coach come in I' I asked. 'I don't see any
particular advantage in being spilled over
a mountain-side. and being shot by train
robbers.' "Now, don't git frisky,' said the old
man. .'I'm tellin' this yera an' I an't done.
That there coach, as I say, sailed over
ofttn the track just liko the hind boy did
when you used to play "crack the whip" at
school. It floated down as nice as yoa
please an' lit on the track below In the val
ley, an' with tbe force it was slung rolled
ten miles to the next station. When ws
got thero it was in on the sldln' an' we
pulled by, an' when the light engine load
o' rustlers come bullin' along the towns
people was waitin' fer 'em an' the new
cemetery wa started in good shape.' "
"WATCH AND WAIT."
Every Great Aefalenrant Is the Record
of Corresponding Pallance.
"Patient wailing no loss," ha been mads
the subject of an instructive volume; and
"let patience bave ber perfect work,' waa
one of the many admirable suggestion of
ancient wisdom, says tbe New York Ledger.
Tbe history of every great achievement,
and the realization of every grand idea, 1
the record of a corresponding patience on
the part of the hero and tbe thinker. But
for the large possession of this sublime
quality, humanity must bave succumbed to
vthmtsand obstacle which have been glo-
rlously overcome, and man, instead of dem
onstraling Progress to be tbe providential
law of his being, would have sunk in the
embrace of fatalism, more helpless and
wretched than the beasts of the field. The
discoverer, tbe reformer thetoenefactot of
whatever class ha each in turn, since the
world began, learned through his own i x
penenoe the truth of the poet's line :
"They nobly win who wstch sod wait,"
and the story of any one of tbem is zp jnly
the story of all.
Kepler, gazing into tbe "upprr deep,"
and discerning for the first tiro clearly the
unity and harmony of the planetary uni
verse, could only from the depths of his pa
tience bave cried, a be closed tbe narra
tive of hi mighty discovery: "The die Is
cast) Tbe book la written; to be read now
or by posterity, I care not which. I may
well afford to wait a century for a reader,
as Ood ha waited" these six thousand year
for an observer." And Columbus, seeking
vainly from city to city, and from court to
court, for some sympathizer with bis vision
of the New World or when treading the
deck of his caravel, beset by mutiny that
would have daunted any other man what
doe tbe world owe to his patience, which
doubled tbe earthly domain, and tenfold
quickened every civilizing element of the
Patience I a lofty attribute. Wisdom
alone beget it in man, for wisdom per
ceives how trivial are most things over
which men are most Impatient What If
they be unaccomplished will the sun for
get to rise, or tbe rain to fall I Will the
seasons lose their order, and seed-time and
harvest fault Nay I Our Impatience I
begotten of nothing, and our patience Is
born of tbe nobler and more enduring
thought and deed.
Let us but be patient i well-doing, or
even in seeking to do well, and we shall, in
the sight of conscience and of God, be no
torious whether we win or lose!
Editors Are Born, Hot Hade,
Every body knows how newspapers should
be edited, but It so happen that th number
who succeed in editing Is very small indeed.
Robert Chambers, one of the most success

like the poet, must be born, not mad. And
that the chief duty of an able editor 1 not
