CHILDREN'S SMALL DECEITS
Signs of Depravity in Little Ones
That Bode 111 for Their /
Natural depravity of the youthful
mind was fully shown in a North Bid.
confectionery store, when three little
girls entered the shop in Indian tut
and made a beeline for the candy
counter in the rear. Their faces wore
an expression of injured Innocence
says the Chicago Tibune.
"Well, what do you want now?"
the old woman who was proprietor oi
the place inquired.
"Oh," said the eldest girl, barely
seven years old, jerking her elbow ex
pressively in the direction of one of
her small companions, "she gave you
a nickel instead of a cent." The old
woman went behind the counter and
took out a tin box containing a num
ber of coppers. She peered into the
box, she shook it, to make sure there
was no nickel lurking among the other
coins, and then held it under the
noses of the little girls, exclaiming
sharply: "There, now! Do you see any
Without replying the girls filed out
of the shop, each face clouded by an
expression of hopeless disappoint
"You wouldn't believe it," said the
old woman, bitterly. "I wouldn't be
lieve it myself if I didn't stand here
all day and see it with my own eyes.
The deceits of children are almost
enough to drKa me crazy. They look
you right in the face with angel eyes
and lie to you as easily as if their
tongues were oiled. Many a penny I
lost because I could not believe that
mere babes were trying to swindle me.
When I catch them at it they run out
just as those girls did without saying
anything. That does not keep them
from coming back here again, though.
"The boys around here are Just aa
bad as the girls. Half a dozen boys
were in here getting candy one day,
and they had got their candy and
hadn't paid for it, when a boy stuck
his head in the door and shouted:
'Say, missus, your sign has tumbled
down!' His eyes bulged out as if he
was scared, and my heart gave such a
jump that I could scarcely get out to
the sidewalk. The sign was all right.
The boys left the store by a rear door
while I was looking for the boy. Af
terwards they declared that they paid
for the candy when they got it It id
dreadful to think what men and wom
en these boys and girle will be when
they grow up."
THE STORY OF RAISSULI.
The Brigand Raissuli, who captured
Perdicaris, tells his own. story in Les
lie's Monthly Magazine.
!Y 'Now, some eight years ago, Abd
fer-Rahman Abd-el-Saduk, then the
bisha of Tangier," said Raissuli, "find
ine that he could not subdue the re
sistance of our party by the troops at
his disposition, made overtures of
peace, and, sending me a safe con
duct, invited me to come and discuss
a friendly solution of our difficulties.
I went to his official residence alone
and unarmed —and, while we sat at a
table (literally—about a tray—) I was
suddenly seized, bound, hurried to
prison and heavily ironed, an Iron
band was riveted about my neck,
handcuffs with intervening bars so
that I could not bring my two hand's
together were fastened on my wrists,
and similar fetters w«re also riveted
about my ankles. Then I was sent 10
Mogador and there confined with the
lowest criminals, who reeked of filth
and who swarmed with insect*—these
letter cut into my flesh as did also my
irons. Thus I remained four long
" years, chained to the walla so that I
could not lie down, until at last the
neck band and handcuffs were re
moved. After that I p&ased still an
other whole year in that horrible pris
on. Do you now wonder," he asked,
1 "at the oath I swore to be revenged
upon so treacherous an enemy? You
know," he continued, "of the column
of government troops lately sent
against us. They remained in the val
ley, yonder, capturing defenseless
peasants at the plow and violating
their daughters, of whom 18, amongst
them children of six years old, have |
been thus dishonored. Then came the
treacherous capture of the M'zorra
• deputation who went at Hadj Abd-er-
Selam Abd-el-Saduk's summon*, bear
ing, not arms, but presents in their
jj bands. Then I determined to seize
. upon some European and to hold him
till theee men should be released and
until the Abd-el-Saduks make restitu
tion for the wrongs we hare suffered
t! at their hands."

"Aunt Cassie came to visit us and star
saw I was nervous, had the fidgets all the
jC r aml slle aslccd me many questions,
and finally said, ' Why, you deaf, sweet girt'
its not your temper that's bad, it's your
constitution that's out of kilter. You sit
right down now and write a letter to Dr
Pierce, at Buffalo, N. V., tell him all your
symptoms '—and «o I did. It wasn't long
before I had a long reply, carefully going
over my case and telling me just what to
do. I date my present happiness anil little
Cupid's return to the very day I sat down
to write that letter to Dr. Pierce, for his
advice was so good and his ' Favorite Pre
scription ' worked such a complete change
in me that now my former cheerfulness
and good health—not to say anything of
good looks—are restored to me. I have
summoned Tom back to my side and we
are to be married in June."
The proprietors and makers of Doctor
Pierces Favorite Prescription now feel
fully warranted in offering to pay $too for
any case of Leucorrhea, Female Weakness,
Prolapsus, or Falling of the Womb, which
they cannot cure. All they ask is a fair
and reasonable trial of their means of cure.
It is natural that a woman who has been
cured of womanly disease by "Favorite
Prescription" should believe that it will
cure others. It is natural too that she
should recommend to other women the
medicine which has cured her. It is
such commendation which has made the
name of Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescrip
tion a household word for the past thirty
