Two or three of tho ofilccrs rushed
Into tho mess room. When they ro

"Gnrcla's right," thoy said, "tho

visited by locusts."
Then thoy stopped abruptly, as
though making a discovery, and
glanced nt tho captlvo. "You aro re

snld composedly, "why not?"
"Let this be a lesson."
They stared at him and at each
other. Was tho boy mad? If so, It
was a madness that must bo punished.
"Shooting Is too easy for a thing
llko that," scowled tho ono' who bad
lost his sword. "It's a cuso for bang

nnothor, gloomily, "You don't know
how hungry I am. But thero goes tho

tering among tho palms. "Perhaps
tho supper will be recaptured."
Tho boy "sniffed. "Flvo minutes'

thousand men couldn't find tho' boys
now. They know hiding places your
soldiers never dreamed of."
Tho officer In command looked at
"Thero Is something behind this,"
ho said thoughtfully. "Yon aro old
enough to understand tho conse

to throw away your ltfo for a little
meat nnd a faw loaves ot bread,"
Tho boy's eyes began to flash and
for tho first tlmo his face lost Us
"I havo risked my ltfo tor a little
meat and a few loaves of bread," ho
declared quickly, "and I do understand
Just what tho consequences aro. But
whnt is life when my mother Is sick

squarely into their eyes.
"Thero is another thing I don't mind

Brought the Bishop's Boots.
A humorous story Is related In con

bishop to a Virginia family. Every
body was dlrocted to nddross tho rev

servant about tho placo was especially
told off to attend him. Tho blshoy
like every other Englishman, set hit
boots outside his door when ho went
to bed at night. His temporary body
servant was instructed to take thcrn,
blacken them and return them before

did aB ho was told. The bishop was
dressing when he knocked on the
door In the morning, with hla care
fully taught response, "It's Uo boy,
my lord, with your boots," on the tip
ot his tongue. Tho sound of the
bishop's volco confused him.
"Who's thero?" tho bishop called
Tho boy forgot his speech utterly.
"Who's thero?" tho bishop called
"It's tho Lord, with your boots, my
boy," said ho.

HNY one who may be passing
