I)ogg and Sheep.
Ii the year ls7u there were, accord

HlMI.OOO sheep and --'Wt.tMK) dogs in the
state of Tennessee. 'Thirty vear.s
later, according to the census o
11MM), there were in the same state
200.000 sheep and soo.OOo dogs. A
parently it is only a questiou of
few years when there will be million
of dogs in that state ami no sheep at
all. In commenting' on these figure

Tennessee would like to return to the
figures of 1S70. Hut the thoughtful
people must be in a minority, for it
.o politician has the courage t
attack in any manner the dogs o
the state, although it is admitted
that half of them are homeless am
ownerless, mere wanderers and for
agers, without law or license of any
sort. These dogs destroy sheep, pigs
and poultry each year to a value suf
ficient to duplicate every courthouse
school and church in the state. And
yet nothing can be done. I'ublie sen

least enough public sentiment rim
that way to upset any aspirant for
office who stands up to his convic

Of course, if the good people
Tennessee prefer si lot of worthless
dogs to sheep, which would add so
Iarirelv to the wealth of the state
that is their own business. The grea
maioritv of .these iors serve no ns
ful purpose whatever, while they tie
stroy the industry of sheep-raising.
No intelligent lover of dogs can have
any sympathy with such a state o
affairs, for most of these dogs lead
semi-nomadic life and are generally
half starved. It is certainly no kind
ness to the beasts to allow them to
multiply under the circumstances
Some day. however, the jH-ople where
dogs are multiplying and sheep le
creasing, will see light on this ques

Caught a Tartar.
Vlrslnia Maynard was strolling near
a wood adjoining her father's winter
home In Florida. Coming to the ode
of the t'ulck timber, she heard familiar
voices. Stealthily drawing mar, she
tooU jRjsltlon behind the trunk of a
tree and listened.
"I must put this man Sumner out of
the contest. I can uevcr win tli fulr
Virginia so long as he is in the race.'
IIow will you do thatV"
"With your assistance."
"I want you to pick a quarrel with
him. You are a dead shot. If ho chal
lenges, you, I r.-ill step In and save
him from you by taking the quarrel
upon myself. If he does not resent
your insult. I will challenge you on his
account. In either event he will be
under an obligation to me. Then I will
cook up a story about myself and Vir
ginia and secure his promise to with
draw from the contest." v
"And what am I to gain?"
Dy this time the speakers had passed
out of hearing. Miss Maynard at first
determined to warn Mr. Sumner of the
conspiracy. Then she concluded to re
main silent and see how he would con
duct himself. He was a quiet man.
with more inclination for books than
A week passed, during which she
saw nothing unusual in Sumner except
that his manner toward her was chang
ed. It was plain to her that the scheme
of the plotters had worked admirably,
livery day she expected to receive a
call from the victor, Martin Archer,
but he did not appear, and at last she
heard that he was suffering from ty
phoid fever. Then, with a freak which
she herself could hardly explain, she
sent Archer some flowers. A eply
came from his mother that lie was too
ill to thank Miss Maynard even by
note. The next day Sumner called,
and she sent word to him by the maid
that she was engaged and would like
to be excused.
Sumner did not need so strong a
hint as tbls to drive him away. I If
ceased his calls on Miss Maynard and
in another week went to his home in
the north. Archer, after several weeks
confinement, went to New York without
visiting her or In uuy way taking leave
of her. From New York he sailed for
Miss Maynard was puzzled. Iie re
turned to her northern home and spent
a summer wondering what It ail meant
Thi following November found lur
again in r loricia. sue Knew ot nut
three jersons who could satisfy her
curiosity,, and none of them was avail
able. Neither Sumner nor Archer was
near, and tJeorge llinkley. Archer's ac
complice, had been obliged by the nu
thoritie to leave the state for some in
fringement of the law.
Miss Maynard was wondering what
to do when she made the acquaintance
of Stephen Withers. Withers was
northern man. the owner of an orange
plantation, and lived most of the year
in Florida. lie was acquainted with
all the parties concerned and had been
an intimate friend of Sumner. Miss
Maynard noticed that Withers always
regarded her with a curious interest
This at last induced a suspicion that
he knew something about the affair
which had aroused her curiosity. One
day she tiohlly asked him:
"Mr. "Withers, do you know anything
about a challenge-having passed from
one George llinkley to Walter Sum
ner?" . .
"I ought to, since I was Sumner's
You don't mean it! S. thore was a
duel? Why didn't you tell me?"
"I was pledged not to tell; but. since
the affair was about you and is a thing
of the past, I don't mind speaking of
"Tell it allot once."
"llinkley insulted Sumner, and Sum
ner knocked him down. Then llinkley
challenged Sumner, and Sumner ac
cepted. Archer told Sumner that llink
ley was a dead shot and would kill
him, offering to take the matter off his
hands. Sumner finally ierm:tted him
to settle the matter amicably, which
he did. Then Archer intimated to
Sumner that, in consideration of hav
ing saved his life, he would like him
as a iavorto uo something. I never
knew what, but it made bad bluod be
tween Archer and Sumner. They had
a scuffle one day in the presence of
witnesses, and Archer challenged Sum
ner. I acted for Sumner, llinkley for
Archer. At the first round Sumner sur
prised us all by firing very quick and
true, wounding Archer in the arm.
Then we tried to stop the affair, but
Sumner would not consent unless Arch
er would agree never to communicate
with you in any way again. Archer
would not make the pledge. At the
next round Archer was badly wound
ed. Again we tried to patch up a
peace. And so It went on till Archer
felt assured that Sumner would kill
him If he didn't promise. Then he
made the pledge. We carried him
home, put him to IkhI and gave out
that he had typhoid fever."
A .few days later Mr. Sumner re
ceived a letter from Miss Maynard
asking what had become of him. In
closed was a uotefrom her father In
viting him to visit their winter home
In Florida. The invitation was ac
"What right had you." asked Miss
Maynard. "to demand that Mr. Archer
should hold no farther communication
So you know of that affair? Well, I
was eonviuceu tuat ne was trying to
play the same game on me."
"You have deprived me cf a hus
band." "I can only offer myself in his place."
The substitute was accepted.
