ragging dat de market affords.
I don't know was it dat she missel
connection wit a parasol she expected ;
to get from Miss Fannie, or what 'ell.
"but one day Duchess gets me in a cor

your position in dis house?"

"Is it de second man's place to be
groom for Miss Fannie?' Duchess says.
'I rides after her," says I. "because
I was brought up to do it propei when
I was a kid, and Whiskers could take
a hitching etrap to me if I ever took me
eyes off Miss Fannie when she was rid
ing. Dat job is special."
"You are valet for Mr. Paul," says
"ire has a Jap valet of his own,"
"But you order his boots," says Duch
ess. "You get him ready-', if he's only
going somewheres for a week-end."
"Dat's because de Jap orders riding
boots for yachting; and if he gets him
ready for a trip, he never knows where
"Dose is poor excuses," say Duchess,

"I ll tink about dat," I says, "when
de odder soivants pays men wages.
"What's on your mind, woman?" I says.
"It's not me job dat's boddering you.
Sing your song, and dance your dance,
and let me eee where you're at."
"You is de real director of de soicus
and I have no part in it," says Duchess,
and dat shows me where her little
"bootees was pinching.
We was getting up a soicus a ama
toor soicus for de benefit of yatch
sailors orphans; what dere ain't any
of em nearer dan Scandehoovia, where
de yacht sailors come from. But dat
made no difference: dere had to be a
benefit, and yacht sailors orphans had
a romantic sound as Willy Widdy said,
so dat went; and our folks said de soi-
cus might be held on our lawn, cause
we had de most conveniences for soiv-
Dat put it up to .Mr. Paul to be direo
tor, and he, being too strong to woik
hard, puts it next to me.
Dere was a swell comes over to take
charge of de riding turns, and I gets
up some comics for de laugh side of de
show, and takes charge of de woikmen
getting up de tents and seats; and looks
after de places where refreshments was
to be set up; and gets de band, teaches
de clown how to do a comic fall, pract
ices up a few tumbling tricks of me
own, learns our kiddie Little Duke to
do a ring-master turn for. Little Miss

Soon as she heard dat dere was to be
a soicus Duchess was croisy to be part
of de show. Dere's a whole bunch of
tricks she can do, but none of em is in
de soicus line, and I had to pretend dat
I wasn't on to what she wanted. If
dat goil didn't have to woik for a liv
ing she be a actress. Sure! I never did
see a woman who liked to be in de lime
3ight more dan Duchess. And she's all
right when she's dere, for she aint a
little bit shy as a good looker; but she
belongs to de moddern school, and tinks
dat to be a good-looker is all dere is in
de game, and won't study no part. I've
tried her in de teoatricals we has ev'ry
Winter in de soivants' hall.
But dat dug no subway wit her she
was bound to be in de soicus, and when
I couldn't see it, de way she found
places where I was a mile off from be
ing. It was a wonder.
Of course, a man dat wants to, can
beat a woman wit a hammer; but if a
hammer isn't in de game, de easiest way
to 4.o, if you've got to beat her, is not
to. So I hustled to find a job in de soi
cus dat Duchess could hold down, and
I got it. I had to.
I had a turn I was rehoising Little
Miss Fannie, and our kiddie and de
bull pup. Little Miss Fanni was to
put through his tricks, while Kiddie
was ring master. De pup done noble in
all his tricks except dat he was no dead
sure proposition on going through de
hoop every time. Mostly when de Lit
tle One held de hoop, after we'd cover
ed it wid paper, de pup would balk, till
he'd run around behind it to make sure
dat Little One had de piece of meat
he was to get. If de hoop wasn't cover
ed he'd see de meat, and go through like t
I doubles de size of de chunk of meat,
but it was no sure ting dat he'd butt de
paper till re'd took a peep behind to
see for fair dat his wages was dere. ,
You see, he didn't like de paper end of
his trick, anyway; and I was up against
how to make de turn a sure shot, till,
one day. de folks from our house come
down on de lawn to see us rehoise.
Willy Widdy was along, and she held
a pint measure poodle in her arms. She
was w ise. Dat poodle was always in
her arms if she was strolling within a
mile of de bull pup. I had sometimes
tought dat de pup had made up his
mind dat to die a hor'ble death would
be a bargain counter price to pay for de t
joy of one chance to bite dat poodle in j
two. I never.did see anyting dat wanted I
anyting else eo bad as de pup wanted :
to get a hammer-lock wit his jaw on
dat poodle! What made him feel it so
hard was dat de poodle knew it, and
used to give de pup de ha ha from j
where he'd laugh at him in de Widdy's I
arms. Dogs do a lot of tinking about
things like dose. Of course, any good
pup would like to bite a poodle; de
poodle knew dat; he knew he was safe
in Widdy's arms, and so he made life
more to de bad for de pup by making
faces at him. and, as I was telling you.
giving him de ha ha.
Well pup had balked de hoop wit pa
per a few times, and I had de kiddies
in a fit because I was going to give pup
a kit f a welting, when all of a sud-
den PUP 6ees Poodle, as Widdy was just
lovely to see. But Widdy was leary, as
poodle into de same acre of ground as
pup; and bulldog had anodder hard
luck story to worry about.
Dat set me tinking. When de folks had
went back to de house I tell Duchess
; to borrow poodle, and fetch him down
to where we rehoising, but not to put
Widdy on to what part we wanted de
poodle to play. Duchess seen her
chance to butt into de show, and sh&
soon had poodle dere, in her arms, and
! I tried de trick. It was lovely. All
' had to do was to hold poodle on de
opposite side of de hoop, and pup went
through em as fast as de coachman's
kid could paste on new paper. He never
renigs once. He'd a jumped till he wore
, his feet off on de tousand-to-one chance
dat I'd be off guard, and let him get
a mouthful of poodle. And poodle was
having de time of his life, too. When
: he seen how hard pup was woiking, and
dat notting was doing except de puppy,
poodla near barked his head off laugh
ing. "Take poodle back to Widdy," I say?
to Duchess," and say nothing about dat
we is going to make a actor of him. I've
got a place for you in de show wher
you'll only have to put on your swell
rags, and stroll on in a haughty man-i
Well, well, dere's a heap of trouble
In dis life dat comes when we tinks we
has only to push a button to get a good
ting we has all laid out for ourselves.
De soicus comes off, and was going like
a hurry call ambulance. Notting to
stop it! De loidies and gents had done
deir riding turn, some college lads had
done some straight tumbling, and it
was fine; Mr. Paul had made good, a
a straight ring master, and den he in
troduces me as de only 'riginal Bowery
song and dance artist left on top of
eart, and I'd obliged wit de old favrite,
"On de Banks of de Bronks, Where me
Summer Goil Hangs Out."
Next Mr. Paul introduces "Little Miss
Fannie, and her Wonderful Trick Bull
Pup." Little One comes in wit pup, and
our kid, and I follows along, as clown,
to see dat de pup done all right. De
kids makes a greahit, and, say, I was
proud of Little Duke. "Most of de folks
dere was friends of our folks, and dey
knows me and Duchess by sight, and
when dey hears dat Little Duke was
our kid dey gives him a great jolly, and
kiddie says his lines beautiful, all his
th's being- in place and doing duty.

through all his tricks hut de hoop.
Duchess stroll in from de dressing" room,
like she was a swell out for a walk
around de block; and she has "Widdy's
poodle in her arms, and de style of her
gets a great reception. She hears de
folks saying dat she was Hortenae.
Fannie's maid, and she pipes me off
wit a wink, like she was saying, "J
told you I'd be de star of de show."
She was! My, she was for a fact I
Little Miss Fannie held pup's head
away from de hoop until just as Duch
ess was passing behind, and den she
lets de pup see what was doing-, and
turns him loose. Pup gives a little cry
of joy, makes a running jump of it
trough de hoop, wit his mouth wide
open, like he wanted to be ready for
dat bite he'd hoped for so long. 1
nearly had a fit when I sees him land
like a flying machine against Duchess,
and dat French hussy drops poodle, and
lets out a yell dat was heard on de od
der side of de Sound.
Pup had caught a mouthful of paper
as he flew trough de hoop, and dat
saved all of our lives, for he was part
blinded, and didn't get a fair hold at
foist. But he got hold enough to nail
poodle's hind leg, and poodle gives a
squeal dat brought Widdy down from
her seat flying. Whiskers seen dat dere
was trouble, and he flies after Widdy;
I Jumps for de dogs: Kiddies gets into
de rally; Mr. Paul jumps into de ring
to grab de kids; and de audience ap
plauded to beat de band what was pity-
Ing shiver music! Dere was tings doing
all over de lot.
I gets into de center foist, and de pup
lets go his holt to shift to a better one.
I rabs him by bote hind legs, and
chases: him moaning most sorrowful
but licking his chops, for he had drawn
foist blood, anyway.
I makes a quick pass of de pup tc de
coachman's kid, and tells him on his
life not to stop running till he'd locked
de pup up in de stables; and den
goes tack to de dressing tent, and meets
Widdy calling for smelling salts, a doc
tor, bandages, lin'ment, de police, and
"What have you done wit dat horrible
devil-dog dat has murdered my "beauti
ful darling pet!" she says, like a trag
edy actress out on top of de stoige.

was all laughing about de turn dat was
not down on de bill. When Widdy hear?
em she was foist near croisy wit rage;
but she Is no farmer, and pretty soon
she shifts to make a good face of it;
for dames like her can stand most any
kind of a game except to be made h
game of deirselves, and so she pretend
ed to take it as a joke, and get out of
being part of de joke.
De show was a winner, boodle-wise,
and if ever we finds any yacht sailors'
orphans, dey'll have ice cream and
candy derest of deir live; but I was
feeling like I wished I had a home at
far off as Scandehoovia to go to, all de
time I was helping to solve refresh
ments after de ball was over. I knowed
dat I could square meself wit Mr. Paul,
all right, but I had me opinion dat Mies
Fannie would be dead sore on me for
not telling Widdy dat I was going tc
borrow her poodle.
But wken de folks had went,and
Whiskers had drove off wit Widdy tc
de vet's, Miss Fannie calls me to de
hall, and she looks around to see dat
no one was rubbering, and den she
shakes hands with me." "Dat was beau
tiful done, Chamee," ehe says.
"Tanks, Miss Fannie," I says. "What
was beautiful done?"
"learning Mrs. Harding's poodle, so
dat de vet will have to put it out of de
woild wit cloroform. You did it on poi
pose, of course?"
Say, I was in wrhat dey calls a prob
lem play, den, I hadn't done de poodle
on poipose, but if it made me stand to
de good wit Miss Fannie to have her
tink dat I did, I wag willing to stand
for dat, or anyting else. So, I just look?
w-ise, and says, 'Tank you, Miss JTar
nie," and goes on me way.
But when I sees Duchess I tells her
to put me wise on de game.
"It is so simple," says Duchess.
"Ma'mzelle Fannie admire Madam Han
ding very well, but she despise dat
Madam make sf much of dat poodle
Also Whiskaire, he do not like de
poodle. What will you?"
"Anyting dat's coming to me." says I.
"Very well. Ma'mzelle Fannie, she
know very true dat Madam Harding
will never more be seen wit de poodle
because a woman like her would radder
be seen wit a pair of soiled boots, or
gloves and she'd die before dat dan
to be seen wit a ting dat has made her
of de redic'lous. So she will now be
more agreeable to Ma'mzelle, and per
haps to Whiskaire."
If Duchess hadn t doped he game to
me right, I'd been paralzed when Widdy
comes to me in a few days, smiling like
she was a six time winner, and sayc
dat de poodle was not much hoit; and
did I know of some kind people dat
would 'preciate and tenderly care for
Fido, because she didn't tink de climate
of Westchester County was good for de
little dear's healt.
I tells her sure: dat me own modder
was all her life dying for just such a
beautiful dog as Fido; and her old ag
would be like a continuous perform
ance picnic if she had a poodle like
Fido to board wit her.
What do you tink? WTiddy tells me
to take Fido to me modder, and pays
a case-a whole, long, one-spot for de
board of de dog every week. Modder
is getting chesty with de income, and
as she feeds it proper, and don't coddle
it, it's getting some manners and spir
it; and de old lady has more fun wit i
dan a box of monkies.
I was satisfied to get out of de propo
sition on dat lay, but what bodders me
is, dat Duchess never got no roast nor
notting; and has a smile like she Is
stuck on herself, whenever I epeaks of
de job; and she has de parasol of Miss
Fannie's she's longed for. Do you spose

(Special to The Messenger.)
Wilson, N. C. September 17. Gov
ernor Aycock has ordered a special term
of court for Wilson county on Octo
ber 5th. This term is for special cases
only and will last until all the criminal
cases are disposed of. There will come

et this case has not been considered.
and with n view of having it decided
the comm:?.?!or.rs ordered this special
term. Juirf- Justice, of Rutherford
county, will e the presiding judge.
The people cf Wilson have been
tre-.t'-'d to s-ncy correspondence during
this week between the mayor and the
editor of the Wilson Times. The trou
ble arose out of the publication of the
record in a whiskey case which came
up in the mayor's '"ourt some weeks
pco. It was claimed by the editor of
The Times that Mayor Herring dis-
posed of a case when it was not in
his power to dp so. When an effort
was made at a later date by the edito-'
to see the town records he was denic-t
this privilege by the mavor, and urjn
this refusal several very- caustic Ar
tides were written by The Times edi
tor. The controversy seems to have
lagged at this writing.
At a meeting of the town authorities
a few -weeks ago an ordinance was
par-sol prohibiting the sale by the drug:
stores of anything exceut drJS, these

to, between the hours f nine and
twelve and four to six on Sunday. On
last Sunday the Sanitary Pharmacy
kept open all day Surday and were
acordingly indicted. Tae case was up
before Magistrate Tonsend but was
dismissed on account of lack of evi
dence. It.e Wilson graded schools openeel
yesterday with 564 .tmprls enrolled. This
is the largest eHment for the open
ing of any '-ear in the history of the
s.-hoois. L-ast year the opening enroll-
inent "as 504. During this summer Su
perintendent Mangum has had several
necessary improvements made in the
arrangement of the school buildings.
Wilson is proud of her school buildingss
and her schools. They are as good asr
any in the state, and Superintendent

of aU the people of Wilson in his work.
