aom queer hmppeelags have bee re
ported fromm difMset - re this sltte
during te past week. but the queret of
thelotIet Is demAbofaaRA tat had be
come a eoanflrmd dnuakaid. The owner
of th flaob, eorgeSnof Leidy, (CiB.
ton county. deela« i the fibh corn
mWttod sauidew. aWlh was an un
ueualy hag brook Mukjr. It was caugbt
inaa tyear e*this -th and on atc
eoaunto Itslmie It *ri wept all-e saw
plared La a email Asb pound In Leidy's
grounds. The pound is shallow, and
contained. besides th big eucker,
oalty a few goldflab Mnd othr ana
mental flRb. The sucker soon became
used to Its new surroundlmig and grew to
he as tame as the sold fih. Its numner
of tonWr by extending Its quar snout
and ag cn an Mytaing" tatmea within
Its reach, was coam for wre amuement
to all who saw him. The sucker was
mivma thm na ci Old Tom. and nene dmV
_;.S t.H. th e su .n a -

a a lonu tubs to it with the usual
montbW bse at see detatehed end.dropped
the tube in the water in front of the suck
er's mse. The fsh dually sucked the
m thniee in. He rew a mouthfl of 4
thi milk down the tube from the bottle,
but evidently did not like it, for be spat it I
out and moved away. auers then lled
the bottle with beer and tried Old Tom
with that. The beer seemed to suit him,
for be sucked in more than half of what
was in the bottle before he gave up the
tube. Sauer says that the sucker
cavorted in the water as be had never
done before, and had high links among
the other fish for half an hour or more.
After that be moved to the other side of
the pond, close to the bank, and remained
there all the rest of the day, scareely mov
Ing, even when touched with a stick.
Sauers was of the opinion that the beer
had put a head on the sucker, and that he
was simply Iaying the penalty of tamper
ing with the flowing bowl, the same as
everyone has to. The next day Old Tom
seemed to be all right, and he was
offered some more beer. He took it like
a little man, and this tine almost
swamped the bottle, which held
half a pint. He went off about the
pond, as full as a tick, and showed
his hilarousness by chasing the other
fish in a dizzy sort of way, and by coming
to the top and turning regular-mude som
ersaults. This spree of old Tom's did not
seemt to break hint up as the first one had
done. althotbh that his coppers were hot
was aptly shown next morning by the
avidity with which he took in a milk
iunch that Sauers had thought would set
well on ham stomach. That punch, though.
gave old Tom an early morning jag that
made him ugly, and he waltzed around
the pond, knocking the unoffending gold
fluh right and left, and was evidently just
crasy for a mus. This disposition on the
part of the inebriated sucker led hint to
grab by the tail one of the big crawfish
that were part of the ornamental life of
the little pond. Old Toni stuck out
his snout and seised the crawfish
and tried to suck hint in. The crawfish a
a creature that resents familiarity of any
kind. and this one twisted itself around,
shot out its left claw. and caught old Tom
by the Jowl. and immediately followed
him with a hitch on his nose with the
other claw. The sucker dropped the
crawfish like a hot iron, but the crawfish
didn't drop the sucker, and it wasn't un
til he had made the liveliest kind of a
circuit of the pond, carrying consterna
tion to the staid and dignifled goldfish
that old Tom was able to shake off the fee
he had been unwise enough to tackle.
That encounter seemed to sober the old
fellow up, and he retired to the shelter of
a big stone on the bottom of the pond,
and renmained in evident remlorseful con
temptlation until afternoon.Then hle sallied
forth once more, and as he sought with
considerable eagerness the spot where nie
had previously encountered the seductive
rubber tube, Salers took it for granlted
that he was looking for a bait. Sauers
treated him to beer, and he laid right to it
until he had emptied the iottle. He camen
around looking rather wistful next morn
inllg, and took with unlgned delight a
rocktail that Sauers mixed for hint. Ever
sinter then, Sauer says, the hig sucker
has been on the dlownward path. He
c(ame around every mnorming for his nip,
and if he didn't get it tore around the
iond like a wild man. Beer got too mild
for him, and for the last three months he
Ihas been loaded up on straight whisky.
Sauers says he tried several tintmes
to break Old Tomn of the habit he
himself had thoughtlessly led him into by
gradually weakeninf the whisky with
water, and finally quit the supply entirely;
bht one day Sauers went out and saw oad
Tom wild-eyed and evidently filled with
terror, shrinking hack as far as he could
in a little hollow in the bank, as if trying
to eece from something tlat was men
acing him. Suddenly he rushed wildly
out of the hollow and tore like mad to a
little stump and got behind it. He peeked
eut around the stuap aad evidently saw
the thing that was troubling him in pur
suit, for he drew back and actually
crouched against the stump, while his
eyes almost hung out on hbls cheeks with
"He's ngo the jams!" said isuer. . "I've
shut his liquor off too suddenly."
Saner went and got Old Tom's bottle
and gave him a corker. After the old
fellow had got three lnside of him his
nerves quieted down. and he came maround
all right. Since then Sauers hadn't daed
to hbut Old Tom's liquor of. He required
more and more every day. and be took on
a disreputably blear'eed and bloated
cenditon. He swelled up half as big
again as be wau in his sobher days, and the
goldllha and other ishb in the pond long
ago cut his company. If he happened to
fet anywhere near them, four or five of
them would pounce upon him and give
him the bounce without delay. He got to
be an outand.out bum. and began to feel
his disgraee about a week . One deay
Iast week. after he had been drinking
heavily, be moved over toward the big
stone at the side of which he had made
his lounging place since he had been os
traseled so eociety in the pond. and I.Ued
at it in a curious manner for a minute or
two. Then he made a sudden and swift
rush forward and burled himself head first
against the side of the stone. The force
of the collision threw Old Tom hack more
than two feet from the stone. He Cave
convulsive gap,. turned over on his side,
and rose to the surface as dead as a
"He had committed suicide." Sauers
says, "as sua as his namne was Toml."
From the New York Weekly.
Mra.De Firm "I tremble to think of our
daughter marrying that young man.Wby.
he orders his mother and sisters around
as if they were slaves."
Mr. )e Firm-"lDon't worry, my dear.
