"I tell you I wont 1"
"Wont? Do you-know who you
nre tnlking to?"
"Don't 1 ? Father! And a pretty
one you are.- I have sold myself to
the flames of hell already ior your
cake, and I tell you I'm not going to
stain my hands with blood."
"Blood ! Bah ! Who wants you
"But you want me to entice him
here bo that you can murder him,
and I wont 1" and ? e speaker, a girl
of twenty, coarse, and yet protty of
fi ntures, of dark, waving hair and
flashing oyes, turned hastily away.
But the strong arm of the brutal
man?one well known on the Red
River as one of the most desperate?
detained her, nnd his impious and
burning words were breathed the *ten*
ingly in her car.
'?Look here, beauty ! It wont do
for you to put on airs with me. You
know me, and know nothing stops me,
ho if you don't get that man here it
will be worse fur you. He has gold,
nnd I want it."
"Rob him, then, who caros? But
you don't make a tool of me to lure
him to be murdered."
"Mighty good you nre getting to
b?*, ain't you."
"1 cold myself to sin and shame. I
became the mistress of a man I hated;
hated as you do anything goo 1 or
decent; that you might m?ko him pay
smart money. Now 1 am-.

Either you do as 1 want you, or, by
Heaven, I'll murder him first and
then tie you to his carcass to rot!
Do you hear?"
"Better not tempt me too far ! I
never did a good deed before in my
liie?since you in the very days of my
childhood traiued me to crime; and
by the God above, I'll not be driveu
ir jm it now 1"
How strnuge hat she, a sin-sold
one, should couplo with and enforce
by an oath a deed upon which angels
would look lovingly? Ah?when
womanhood blisters und pollutes her
lips by taking God's holy name in
vain, how deep, damning, never to
be repented of must be the depths into
which she has fallen 1"
Passing from the house, Dick
Evarts, the outlaw, hastened to the
bank, jumped into a boat, and pulled
down the river. A short distance
brought him to a cabin, where, secur
ing bis boat, he entered, finding three
rough men?outcasts, counterfeiters
murderers, like himself?busily en
gaged in the purely Western game of
"Weil, Dick," was the salutation he
received from one of tho number,
"how about your daughter ?"
"No daughter of mine 1 Bad as I
am I could never bring myself to net
so liko a devil to my own flesh and
"Well, don't get too pious. But
about the gal?"
1 "She won't do it, that's all.''
? k'Tbeo that game is played out I"
"Not yet?the minx 1"
"But she'll blow us,"
"If she gets a chance, which I'll
take good she dou't.; One of you
must wa'ch this young sprig she has
"fallen in love with, and ril?what iu
Satan's name is that ?"
A ringing, cherry laugh burst up
on their ems as tlmy sprang to the
door, and saw the supposed daughter
of Evarts paddling across the stream
I in one boat?canoe, or "dug-out"
rather?and towing nrother, thus
completely cutting ofl all chance of
then following. '
"Hal ha!" she shouted, "I'll be
stool pigeon for you! Follow me if
you can! Catch . me if you can I"
and leaping to the opposite bank,
made the s ender boats fast, and dis
appeared iu tho woods.
"By?! she's got us, and will
peach !" shouted Kvarts. "I wish I
had stuck a knife iu her heart!"and
throwing aside his hunting shirt he
leaped into the rapid stream and
swam across, followed by the others,
in the hope of yet overtaking the girl
and stopping her mission.
"Mr. Malcolm?Edward Malcolm 1"
shouted the brave and almost exhaus
ted girl, . as she burst into the room
where the young man (Malcolm had
hite'y wandered into the settlement,
and had the reputation of being rich)
sat, and then in breathless accents,
related her story, not even sparing
herself the shame of the proposal by
which she was to entice him to de

Was she not simply acting :i pan
iu or : r 'he better to betray him?
lind nut her fear been assumed i i j
ord> r to lure him more certainly into >
the net? though bespoke not, yet
his iyes rc vealed this, and throwing
herself at his feet, she clasped his
knees, and in the very agony of des
pair, sobbed forth?
"Strike me dead or tru<t me! Oh,
God, that 1 should have earned this!
Come, come nith me! My father is
coming; nn instant pause will be
fatal !. Come, for the love of Heaven,
"I will trust you ! My blood be
upon your soul if you prove false !"
"Come!" she repeated, throwing
open the door, and leading him fortli
iu full sitrht and bearing of the men
who were lurking in the hushes.
"Come, Edward, father has gone
away from home, nnd we will be all
"But suppose he should come and
catch me there ?" replied the man,
"I took good caro he shouldn't.

"Will you kiss me then?"
"Yes!'' and she did so with rather
more o'.' willingness than would have
appeared proper in refined eyes, for,
us it was, the outlaw was completely
deceived, and followed them iu sil
ence. But the cunning girl had agai.i
secured both boats and so rendered
his journey home a long oue, as the
banks were almost impassabio.
An hour alter midnight he and his
accursed companions again crept to
hia cabin. Peering within the window,
he saw the girl and her lover lying
sido by side on tho rude bed, deeply
locked in slumber. With a fiendish
smile he called his comrades' attention
to the number of empty bottles on the

What v/lnking Caused
Sander p is a great winkor. He
can't talk t.> you ten minutes without
enforcing his point with a drop of one
of his i.-V.per eyelids; he never ta'ces a
letter out of the office without winking
at one of the clerks; he winks when
ho duus you, and gives you a sly oue
when he pays a bill. When he moots
und greets you on the street it is al
ways with a significant closing of tho
left eye, and when he has a stunning
pieco of news to tell you his wink is
one of the greatest import. The
world movid along smoothly euough
with Sanders until fast Friday. Up
to that time he had gono winking and
blinking along peacefully enough,
and no clouds obscured his happiness;
but a pall is hanging over Sanders
now, and life has no charms for him.
It's all his wife's fault, he says. Sho
had no business sending him to a
mi llinary store. Sho wanted a bow
to match one on her hat, and she
started Sanders off' to procure it. lie
entered the Btore whistling, and when
ono of the shop-girls approached and
said "Good morning," lie winked and
replied "Good morning."
Ihe girl blushed and looked
nervous; Sanders displayed the bow
nud said :
"Got anything to match that?"
and winked again. The girl vanish
ed to the back room with flam iug
cheeks, leaving Sanders to stare after
her in open mouthed wonder. In a
minute or two tho boss milliucr, who
had been informed of his actions, ap
peared. She was highly indignant,
and aa she slammea the door behind
her she said, "Sir-."
"Good morning, madame," said
Sanders. "Fino day, ain't it now,"
and a wink was unconsciously slung
at the lailv. She bridled up instant
"Sir, the conduct??."
"Of that girl!" interrupted'
Sanders. "Oh, that's all right; nevor
mi ml her?little bashful, eh ?"
Another tremendous wink.
"I cannot permit such conduct, sir.
It is shameful nnd insulting."
"Not at all; not at all," says
Sanders, still ofT the track. "Don't
say another word, we understand each
Another portentous wink.
The milliner vanishes, slamming
the buck door behind her, and
Sanders sinks into a seat ejaculating]:
"Well, I'll bo doggoned !" But he
bounced up quick when a gentleman
entered, and calling him "an old hip
popotamus," proceeded to divest him
self of his coat, and squaring off at
Sanders, cried out: "Now, then, come
"Why, why, bless me, what does
this mean ?" said Sanders.
"Oh, yes, you're a nice one, you are.

this for, coining around and insulting
women and girls with your winks,

Sunders, lie got one in on Sanders
over the eye; Iiis left duke felt for
Sanders'* ribs, while his right rattled
around all over Sanders's mug, and
when ho got through with Sanders,
that indiv idunl was as badly demoral
ized as a pig in a whirlwind, and ho
never found out what it was all about
until the milliner's husband, who had
ascertained his habit, called on Sun
day and apologized. Sanders shook
hands, and said it was all right, and
was just about to wink again, when
he checked himself and said : '-Blamo
it, I'll swear off from that habit!"
and then ho turned and winked at
the wall to enforce his oath.
Adventures of a Dog.
Mr John D Johnson, the lawyer,
went down to Murdock Lake a week
ago for the purpose of enjoying a few
days in angling for black bass. He
took with him a favorite setter, which
lie had raised from a pup. Tho lake
is iu Illinois, thirty miles south of
the city, and tho usual route to it is
over the Iren Mountain Railroad to
Illinois Station; thenco by row-boat
across the river, and thenco by wagon I
to the club-house, a distauco of three
miles. Arriving at the lake, Mr
Johnson went out in a boat to fish,
at seven oVock in the miming, tak
ing his sottcr along for company.
The dog proved troublesome in tho
boat, and was put ashoro, and noth
ing more thought nbout him. When
Mr. Jonson returned to the club house
late in the afternoon, he could not
find his dog, although ho searched
for him along tho lako shore, and
mnde dilligcnt inquiry of everybody
ho met. On his way homo, two days
afterward, Mr Johnson learned at
Illinois Station, that his dog was at
Pevcly, five miles below, and sent n
man after him, who brought him hack
It seems that the dog, after being put
ashore on tho west side of the lake,
had joined a party of fishermen, and
remained with them for a short time
and then returned to tho place where
he had left his master. Not finding
him there, nor at the house, ho con
cluded that the boss had gone home.
Ho made a beo lino for tho river, and
swimming across, took his position
at the railroad station to wait for a
train. Several trains passed, but ho
did not like their looks, and made no
attempt to board cither of thorn. At
length the train that had brought
him and his mastor from tho city
came along, going southward, and
tho dog joyfully jumped aboard. Ho
was recognized by the conductor, who
put him off at Pevcly, with directions
to the agent to ship him to St. Louis.
These facts are given as a remarka
ble instance of canine sagacity. Tho
only nustake the dog made was in
starting in the wrong direction, but
ho probably reasoned that the train
would eventually take him to the city
although in a round about way.
A witty French journalist thus da
scribes the difference between tho
Serba and Turks. The former cut off
the left ear of their prisoners, tho
latter the right.
A city missionary wan asked tho
causoofhis poverty. "Principally,"
said he, with a twinkle in his eye,
"because I have preached so much
