The locomotive engineer was off
duty and had time to talk.
"We have some queer experien
ces," ho said. "One of the things
that is not pleasant is to run over
animals, and we avoid it all we can.
They never seem to know that it is a
good deal safer to take five steps to the
right or left than it is to take 500 right
ahead. That's why we have to stop
often and head them off the track.
"I had a funny thing happen to
me once on the Chesapeake & Ohio
road. About two miles from a
bridge, one day, I scared up a mule
in the middle of the track, and I
whistled for all I was worth, but
the mule kept in the track on a
run. At last I had to stop, and the
fireman went ahead and drove him
"By the time the fireman got back
and we had started that confounded
mule was on the track again, and we
were after him. We didn't dare to
take the risk of running over him,
for that is a dangerous business, so
we had to stop again and drive him
"Well, this thing occurred once or
twice more, and by the last time wo
had got s"o close to the bridge that we
were sure the fool mule was go
ing to try to cross it and we
stopped again, this time cussing mad,
and fully prepared to shoot the mule
if we got a chance. We chased him
right up to the bridge and then down
over the field he went with a bray,
and stopped right in the road below,
and right ahead of us on the bridge,
fastened down some way by his legs
between the ties.we found that mule's

a pious-looking- man in the far
corner got up. slowly and started

to tell myself," said he wearilly,

evening," and the door slammed to

Leaning Upon Others.
New York Ledger.
Half, at least, of the disappointed
men one meets with are victims of
illgrounded hopes and expectations-
persons who have tried to lean upon
others instead of relying upon them
selves. This leaning is a poor
business. It seldom pays. Energet
ic men and they are the classes
generally looked to for aid do not
like to be leaned upon. If you are
traveling in a railroad car and a great
hulking fellow lays his head against
your shoulder and goes to sleep, you
indignantly shake him off. It is the
same in business. The man who
does not at the least attempt to "hoe
his own row" need not expect any
man to hoe it for him. It is nonsense
for any man to pretend to the digni
ty of being unfortunate who has de
pended upon others when he might
have cloven a way to fortune him-

Keep to the Eight.
Do you know what a maze is? It
is a long and intricate series of wind
ing paths, generally bordered on
either hand by high hedges, and so
arranged that it is difficult for any
one entering by the outer gate to find
his way to ihe centre. It is, In fact,
nothing more nor less than a very
There is one famous maze in a pal
ace garden near London, into which
it is unusually difficult to discover the
road unless you happen to know
the;rule. Yet the puzzle is no lon
ger a puzzle, and it is the easiest
thing in the world to walk straight
to the centre. The rule is keep to
right, that is to say, wherever the
pathway winds or wherever there is
a choice of two roads, always take
that which is on the right hand.
That maze reminds me of life. We
often come to moments of doubt and
hesitation, often there lies before us a
choice of two or more courses of ac
tion, where one seems to be ismiling
and beckoning to us, and rich in
promises of desirable things. There
is something about it, however, that
does not quite satisfy our con
science, yet we are loth to turn
aside and adopt the other course
which is, to outward appearances, so
unprofitableand unattractive. What
shall wo do in this difficulty? Re
member the rule of the maze no mat
terwhat may befall, heeding not the
immediate consequences, disregard
ing all the alluraments of the evil

"Here is a member," said he, pro
ducing a letter with the signature
of a widely known politician, "who
has engaged nice apartments, and he
had to lake them by the year to get
them at the figures we agreed on."
"How much will he pay?"
"For three sleeping rooms, parlor
and bath, with private hall, $:j,500.
"Does that include board?"
"Not a bit of it. At the lowest,
board for three would be $150 month
ly, which, added to the other sum,
would make an annual bill of $5,300,
or $300 in excess of his Congressional
salary. Certainly he doesn't come to
Washington to make money out of
his official pay."

cured him entirely. Sold by Ritehey
