to-day. Of course 1 was nervous, and so
wus Crawford, and it was the
first intimation we have had in
this campaign that he had any
such things in his anatomy. Hut the
cause was sufficient. The Cue Hrothers
live at Highlands! And the Highland
Star, bv theuraccof H. '' Uwarl and
the money derived from the government
through the salary of the postmaster

Hut the great Cue Hrothers wnnictlii job, 1

Carolieal partially restored our tipii-:

nit in a driving storm to
meet our aanihilatioii as last we
might. At every turn of the tortuous
mountain road "we expected to nuct the j
advancing OHMIOKTS of republican

about two miles of town we caught u
glimpse of waiving banners. We thought
of llannilial and Napoleon, and then of
coe Hrothers, and our hearts sank within
us. On, on came the banner, and down,
down went our hearts! Suddenly from
out the spruce and the laurel sprang the
.idvnttciug hosts in overwhelming
crowds. There were eight crowds one
in each crowd! Three horses and live
mules, n "cm-hort" upon eaili, with
.vaiving hauliers and lire in their eyes.

and that of bis party as well, and we im

his fellow man. His nitmu was John,
but bis habit of pxtveme ciiro, bis milli

ness tt'id then softened into timidity,
brought to biiu tliH name of Meek. His
business was good, for there whs no
otl'or stovo in tho community, yet. he
was always hard pushed. Tho fact is he
whs too timid mid too much afraid of
giving offetiKO to refuse credit, and when
credit had been given ho was too goalie
to ask for tho money which was duo him.
Even pooplo that wort, regarded as strict

The back room of Moek's Btoro was
the wot day gathering place for the
neighborhood. Contracts for the yoat
were drawn up theie, and many an old
score had been settled in that dingy back
room. When tho weather was cold and
when tho fire burned low no one would
offer to go out and bring in wood from
the rick, a short distance away, but
some strapping fellow would call old
Meek, no matter how busy bo might be
"Hero, old boy, ynu will huvu to calk
up this room to keep the fire from get

"Gentlemen." ho would reply, in a
most miologetio mnnner, "you must
really excuse tne. you'll pardon me,
won't you? I will do Iwttor In the fut

store, and calling old Meek aside said:
"Meek, I've got to have ijfJ.i."
" 'Lige." Meek unswered, with embar
rassment, "you know that if I had it
you could get it."
"What, haven't you got it?"
"Not to save my life, 'Li;,'.'."
"Ob. come now, Meek. Who ever

"Oil. it's all right. What difference

"None, only 1 don't like tu Iw telliti

"Come, tell me. I won't say a word

he remarked, "Yes, a little chilly, but

livery olio gazed at .lint, but not a
word was spoken. The violence of Jim's
temper was well known. No imo moved
except Alt', mid ho, taking unt bis buck

chew of tobacco.
"Yes,"' Jim went on, "wo'vo been

Ho snatched the knife tint of Alf"s
hand, and. soipiickly that a wldo awake
eye could setrcely follow his motion,
stabbed the old man.
Jim sprung through the door and tlls-
apis'iired in tho darkness. They took
old Meek from tho floor and teuderly
placed hi.ii on the bed.
Alt, satil the old man, "I vo bled on
your hand, but I couldn't help it, Alt'."
Tho boys were In the back room of the
store sitting up with the old num. Sev

who bad just lelt thought ho might re

were playing cards.
"Want anything, Meek?" Alf asked.
"No, 1 don't want iiothiu', an' above
all I don't want to interrupt the game,
but 1 jest wauled to tell you that I be

Oh, I reckon not," Alf replied, get
ting up, but when he reached the bedside
the old man was dead.
"Who's tbar?" Jim called, oiiening the
door and gazing into the darkness.
"Alf an the boys," came the reply.
"What do yon want, boys?"
"Come out hero."
"What's up?" he asked when he came
to the gate.
"I don't understand."
"But you shall. Meek is dend."
