which was tenderly conveyed to the
back yard and lowered to its ever
lasting sleeping place in the presence
of aching hearts and inconsolable
admirers, "l'eter," the pet of the
merchant's daughter and joy of the
household, had passed away after a
long, upright and happy career
Peter" was an intelligent white rat
His bright and unassuming manner
f life had endeared him to everyone
thereabout. Therefore it was with
profound sorrow that the information
of his demise was received. The mu
sician and confectioner were especial
favorites of Peter" beside -his mis
tress, and when the white-haired pel
turned np his heels they were the
first to shed tears. The funeral cer
emony was impressive. In the death
room only the intimate friends of the
deceased were allowed. The confec
tioner delivered the oration and
touched upon the beautiful life of
Peter," and the sermon concluded
with a cornet solo "And the Band
Played On" by the musician. Then
"Peter" was lowered into the grave
in a specially made coffin.
An experience which, while never-to-be-forgotten,
is just beginning to
be told about town, was that en
countered by a plumber in the
ihe employ of a Kock Island institu
tion while doing a job at the resi
dence of . one of Molines prominent
families. The family kept a pet boar
which generally held forth in the
cellar. The plumber was unaware of
this fact when he started across the
dark and dingy basement in search
of a water connection. He collided
with something wooly. All fright
vanished when he satisfied himself
that it was nothing more than a dog.
But he couldn't understand why the
beast was so affectionate it hugged
tiim and acted as though anxious fot
i wrestling match. Unable to find
'.he desired locality,' the plumber lit
Alone with a bear! For an instant
vhile tbe thought of how many good
meals human carcasses furnished
these savages, he was like unto stat
uary his life seemed to desert. Fi
nally he mustered np enough cour
tge to rush for the entrance. The
Dear followed and as he was about to
bound into open air the beast clinched
and felled him. He shouted an ago
nizing cry which attracted the occu
pants of the house, who came to the
plumber's rescue. With the man
underneath the bear seemed to
b ugh at its victory. So weakened
from fright it was difficult the
plumber walked out of the cellar.
The bear attempted like games on
other people afterward and became
so ugly that the family found it nec
essary to dispatch it to eternity.
The Fifth avenue business man
had been a youngster one time, but"
he nevertheless resented any pranks
of the rising generation especially
those practiced on Hallowe'en and
he remained home this night pre

dence. Presently two little girls

Why you confounded fool! I
didn't throw at your window. Those
little girls np there are the ones who
did the throwing."
Tbe business man cooled off in an
instant and looked beaten. "Well,
I'm sorry this has occurred, and
hope jou will overlook my error and
accept my apology."
During the Ecuflle the big man's
hat was stamped and broken. "Apol
ogy nothing for two cents I would
give you a beating. And an apology
isn't going to pay for my hat, eith

but take it good natnredlyaa it was
a mistake; and as for any damages,
come down to my office tomorrow
and I will compensate you for the
loss of your hat."
I don't propose to lay off a day to
Xever mind that; I will pay you
for any loss of time, too."
They then parted. The next day
the business man had a visitor to
whom he gave an order for 4 for a

the appearance of an empty one.
But a for rent sign hanging from the
corner of his house explained the
difficulty. Some tricky parties re
