AT THE SIGN OF THE SKULL.
A strange old t avarn have I mi,
Tho walls arc thick, tho garden green.
•Tls damp and foul, yet through the door *
Do rich men come as welt as poor.
They come by night, and they come by da»
And never a guc.-i is turned away.
The landlord, an unwholesome fellow,
Has a complexion white and yellow.
And though he looks exceedingly thia
Does nothing else but grin and grin .1'
At all his guests, who, after awhile, «,
Begin to Imitate his smile. ™
Tha guests arc a fearful sight to see.
Though some arc people of high degree.
For no one asks when a carriago arrives
A decent account of tho Inmates' Uvea,
But holy virgins and men of sin
81eep cheek by jowl In this careless inn.
And beautiful youths in their strength ani
Have oaken beds by a leper's side.
But all sleep wcU, and it never was said
That any kind of complaint was made.
For all'the people wtio pass that way
Appear to Intend a lengthened stay.
The house has a singular bill of fare— /
Nothlncd&inty, nothing rare.
But only one dish, and that dish meat.
Which never a guest was known to eat.
Night and day the meal goes on,
And the guests themselves are fed upon!
These merry guests-are all of them bound
To a land far off, but I never found
That any one knew when he should start.
Or wished from this pleasant house to part.
O strange old tavern, with garden green!
Id every town its wallaare«een.
Now the question hatt often been asked of m&
i la it really as bad as It seems to be?
—Theodore C. Williams in Century.
■ONLY A.STORY. f
It wae rather a remarkable ball, this.
Hot odty were most 0* the bigwigs of
Brisbane present, as well as the girls.for
a hundred miles inland—at least, the
best of tiem—bnt it waa an open secret
that some men were present who ought
either to have been swinging discon
eately hempen ropes or confined
convict prisons for the greater tre
maining part of their mortal lives.
But theyjwere a rough and readycoin
munity in<*those days, taking life, as it
Edith GasVon, as a Tyxolese damsel,
Was charminr;. Every one saidi so, and
you could seelby the bright eyestend sat
isfied face of tV?e girl that she>knew it.
One of her partners whispored to her
to take note of a certain handsome fel
low in a cavalier dress.
"That is the celebrated /Jfurphy," he
■aid. "Keep it dark. He's not such a
brute as the rest. There's a»\speck of the
devil in him, but he's notVso very far
Wrong at heart."
Now, being a romantic and strong na
tured girl, it needed no more than this
confidential hint to excito'in Edith an
overmastering interest in themandsome
His opportunity soon came. Edith was
waiting for her next partnfcr—waiting
with evident impatience, morjeover. Her
peat little foot tapped the floor more
than once, and she frowned. She wag
bot used to being neglected.
Mr. Murphy did not hesitate. He, with
a fascinating bow, asked if he might be
privileged to fill up the gap which had
Accidentally (he laid sweet stress upon
the word) occurred in her programme.
After the dance the cavalier was loath
lo let her go. He took her into a cool
bower of palms, and for five.minutes they
talked on equal terms.
"I consider that you have done me
m unforgetoblo favor in condescending
lo dance with me," said the bushranger,
'■for I've not a doubt you know who I am
better than the police."
"I admit that I have an idea offit," re
plied the girl, with a light laugh. "Why
ion't you become"
"Respectable? Is that it?"
"Well, more or less. You know it is
>ot much of a profession, this-picking of
pockets, is it now?"
There wae real earnestness iin the girl's
tyes as she said these words.
The cavalier looked hard at his com
panion. Thare was deep searted regret
reaming and much else in his expression
lo Edith assured herself afterward.
"I shall never forget this dance while
the blood runs in m\y veins, Miss Gaston,"
laid Mr. Murphy. "Never. lam your
servant, remember udiat. And now I sup
pose some one else'wants you. Permit
toe to take you back.into the ballroom."
Edith remarked that almost immedi
itely afterward the handsome cavalier
lad disappeared from, the room. It was
saore of a relief than seemed reasonable
When she ascertained later that he had
hot been arrested.
"Now, sir," said the carman to the
Rev. Jeremiah Jones when he had seen
ihat gentleman into the vehicle which
Was to take him to his new sphere of
work, "I hope all will go well with you.
You know as well's me there's rogues
about, but they'll respect your reverence's
tloth, I make no doubt."
Nods and good wishes were exchanged,
Hid then Mr. Jones and his man began
Jo ride out of Brisbane toward.tho inte
rior. They had a journey of about 100
rough miles before them ere they could
pet to Leyburn, of which Mr. Jones had
been appointed vicar.
Two days later they were still on the
toad. Tho forest was pretty thick here-
Ibouts, and houses were exceedingly few
md far between.
Tom had begun to show a certain anx
iety to reach Leyburn—an anxiety that
Mr. Jones did not share until he learned
jhat they were now in the country af
lectod by a small but effective band of
tushrangers, of whom Captain Murphy,
is he was called, was the leader.
Even then the parson was not scared.
He had but little money with him, and
ais possessions were not of a very valua
"I don't think," he observed, "we have
Much to fear. My poverty and my cloth,
ts they said in Brisbane, are our protec
They were at length only an hour's
ride from the station where the}- pro
posed to pass the night. Tho parson had,
n fact, just lit a fresh pipe, convinced in
tis own mind that nothing was abont to
happen, when suddenly the scrub parted
ID both sides of them, and from out the
iOWWiDS undergrowth of tho forest
•topped six men of theapprorsd, ot rather
iao uiuoa disapproved, uuiariuiger type,
tilr. Jones bud, in f:ict, begun to turn
Out his pockety before bidden, when
Ihe chief of the robber band politely
"No, no." he said, with a smile. "Only
four clothes, sir. You and your man
fyill be well cared for —somewhere —for
i week or two, and I am going to be tlie
tew vicar of Leybn.ru. I have a fail
smattering of theology, acquired during
more serioue hours in England. I hope,
therefore, I shall not disgrace yon."
The bushranger having attired himself
m the parson's clothes, the new vicar of
Ley burn produced a false beard that was
an admirable facsimile of Mr. Jones'
beard and adjusted it. The meta
morphosis was as convincing as it was
One of the younger rogues was then
enduod'with Tom's (the man's) clothes.
After which, with due salutations, the
car'drove on, the parson and the real
Tom being the next moment carried off,
g«ood humoredly enough, into the forest,
•whence they soon reached the celebrated
Captain Murphy's lair.
On tho second day after the new vicar's
arrival tongues began to sound his
praises. Tho next day it was known for
miles out that the parson was a down
right capital fellow.
Something was to happen on the even
ing of this third day. In tiis various pa
rochial visitations the new vicar had elo
quently urged the more influential of his
paridhioners to attend a very special
jnoeting at The parsonage between 7 and
8 o'clock. One and all the 10 men came
to the (meeting.
The time had purposely been left a lit
tle vague. l'Vst came a wealthy sheep
'"Good evening, Mr. Anderson," said
the new vicar to this gentleman. "Step
in, if you please."
The door immediately closed npon Mr.
Anderson, and ho was covered with a re
volver on either side of him. In fact,
there were four men and four revolvers
opposod to him.
"Now, sharp's the word, Mr. Ander
son," said the new vicar briskly, with
his hands deep in Mr. Jones' pockets,
"checkbook, self or bearer, £1,000.''
"Who are ye, then*" Mr. Anderson
was beginning to exclaim, with some
impatience, when tho little guns drew
nearer to him, and one of them clicked.
"Gill Murphy, at your service, Mr.
Anderson." was the reply. "There's two
minutis for you. Thirty seconds of it's
Then, with a resounding sigh, the big
sheepowner sat down and wrote the
One of Captain Murphy's aids at this
moment whistled. With scant ceremony
Mr. Anderson was hustled out of tho
room into a certain yardhouse that was
both strong and remote. Here he was

mured and kept in comparative quietude
by a couple of gentlemen with revolvers,
who covered them from two side win
dows without glass, but with an iron
grill to each.
The 101 ?ading parishioners were rather
wild, especially Mr. Smithson, but it was
evident they wero in masterful hands,
and for their lives' stike they did not go
beyond verbal abuse and anger.
"That," said Captain Murphy, as he
looked through the sheaf of checks, will
be £1,000 apiece, my boys, and for
me. And now. Mike, get out the cart
and drive like lightning. I must have a
clear six hours'start oi'Leyburn. That'll
just bring me to Brisbane in time to cash
this paper and be off again."
Tho cart was being-prepared with the
utmost celerity, when Captain Murphy
stepped <*vt of the house for a moment.
To come face to face with—Edith G-aa
At the same moment the sham vicar's
beard got detached from his face and
fell to the ground.
The surprise on the girl's face was
scarcely so keen as one would have ex
pected it to be.
Truth to tell, she had heard the new
vicar's voice when he had paid her father
a visit the previous day, and though she
had not then put in an appearance she
half suspected that something odd was
in the wind.
Still the denouement brought about
by the slipping of Captain Murphy's dis
guise did startle her a bit. Her presence
was even more of a shock to Captain
Murphy, who had until now failed tore
member that she was Gaston as well as
When he bowed, with a look of shame
in his eyes, she did not so much as move
her head to him.
"Where is my father?" she asked.
"He will be with you by and by, Miss
"How do I know that? Mr. Murphy,
how could you descend to such wicked
ness as this?
"I think I understand your game. You
insult the Deity as easily as you pick the
pockets of your fellow creatures. Mr.
Murphy, I would rather he the meanest
wretch in Melbourne than be you, with
your crimes on my nhoulders. Let me
tell you straight what I think of you,"
"No, don't ck> that," pleaded the bush
"I shall do it. Do you know that when
I first saw you ti:e other night I thought
you a man whom any one might be proud
to own as son, brother or husband. I'm
not used to skinning my notions, you
see. But that's all gone. Now, Mr.
Murphy, I despise you more than words
can tell. Where is my father?"
"One moment!" he said.
He stepped apart, to the horse and car,
whispered something to the man, took
the checks from his pocket, tore up Mr.
Gaston's, gave the other niue to the man,
and then returned to the girl, holding
his revolver in his hand.
"Will yon do it, and bless me in doing
it?" he asked, offering the weapon.
"Is it likely? But stop"
She was too late. .Simultaneously
might have been heard the jingling trot
of the car outside and the mortal crack
that told of a cttndered life. Captain
Murphy fell dead at the girl's feet.—Ex

The attorney general of Illinois informs

enacted in Illinois, that her powers as in

May Women Smoke?
The burning question whether women
may smoke is still being publicly debated
with great energy. Lady Colin Camp
bell oomcs out defiantly i:i favor of tho
privilege in the last number of an Eng
lish illustrated magazine. She declares
that the finer clay of woman has more
need of tobaccn than tnnu's. It ia the
cigarette, of course, that Lady Campbell
would like to see more often between
her sisters' lips.
Mrs. Lynn Lynton contributes a coun
ter blast, which, for purposes of convic
tion, protests rather too much. She
sums it up, however, in saying:
"The coref.f this movement is not spe
cial love for tobacco, puro and simple,
but the determination of modern woman
to ignore the limitations, the apportion
ments, the conventional proprieties, as
well as elemental differences of sex."—
