together and the rty was ready.
There were annus tsoven do-is in the hunt.

any coons or poss.iuis prowling around to

"them dogs will m st certainly find 'em."
Finally Old Sol appeared with a fire brand
in bis hand, and, with a long drawn out
"whoopee, whoopVru up," the dogs were
given the word and duyJied off for the woods.
Old Sol took the lead and kept up his call of
encouragement to tho dogs as the party

The attnek bad bigun; open war was to be
waged, and heaven save the poor coons and
'possums that were to come In their way.
The course which rbe party took was south
easterly from thocl ib houso. They had cone
but a short distan ?e when ono of the dogs
gave the alarm, and the hearts of all betran
to jump with joy at the prospects of a battle
between tho dogs and tho coon. Old Sol said
it. was Rambler, and it was a sure thing he
was on the track of a coon.
Maj. Oaruth said it might be a 'possum.
Old -Sol was certain that it was a coon the
dogs were trailing; he could distinguish the
difference in old Rambler's bark when he had
a coon or possum.
Suddeuly the wh ile pack took up the alarm.
and the long drawn out alarm bark of the
hounds was welcome music to the ears of the
"Listen," says Old Sol. "Dat am old Ram

All hands go to tr em, and sure enough Old
Sol was right; the dogs bad treed a coon up

"Look at dat tree good," said Old Sol, "an'
if it am got any lim is on it we'll send up some
one an' shake dat ccon out."
"No," said ono of tho natives, "there are no
limbs on it. Stand back there and gives me
room to chuck my cout, an' we'll Ding that

"All hands heah wid axes," cried out Old

and four fresh men stepped forward and took
"Ixxjk out; she's .Tracking," someone was
heard to cry, and tho next moment down
came that giant of t he forest and mister coon
came down with it. With a mad rush the
dogs sprang forward to givo tho coon a warm
reception. E veryl dy was shouting, and the
dogs wero burking, ho whole party making a
noise that was almo ;t deaf ening.
It was a big coon, and a tplondid fighter.
He soon sent some of tho dogs those that

MADE IT LIVELY FOR THE POOS.
The dog Snider showed his staying qualities
and exhibited tho nurt grit. An effort was
made to hold sever al of the dogs and only
allow ono or two to tackle the coon at n time.
Hut tho excitement 1-ocame so intense that no
one know what ho whs doing half the time. All
were yelling at the tip of their voices and the
dogs were barking; tho noise was fearful; no
doubt it taiuld have een heard for miles in

Presently the bark of Old Rambler again
gave the alarm, and when the imrty reached
the dogs they hud two coons treed. This was
more than any one bad bargained for in so
short a time. Coons were plentiful for a cer
tainty. The choppers wero put to work; the

cut down in short order. Hut the coon was a
little too quick for tlio dogs, and Itcfore they
could catch him he was up another tree.
This tree was hewn down, and as it-fell, the

there was another trmi to cut. This time the
dogs nailed him. Ile was a young one and

A little picture baunta me:
It comes, and comes again;
It la a tiny bird's Beau
All ragged from the rain.
It clings within a birch tree,
Cporj the moorland's edge;
Detween the barren branches.
Above the swaying sedge.
The sky Is jrray behind It,
And when the north winds blow
The birch tree bends and shivers,
And tosses to and fro.
I wonder, does it haunt them.
The birds that flew away?
And will they come to seek it.
Home sunny summer day?
I wonder does some redbreast

As 1 can view It nowf

A sultan of Morocco, requiring an execu
tioner, one day a man arrived to offer his ser
vices. "Are you really clever at itr asked the
monarch. "Can you cut oft a head at one
"Very good. Como into tho rourtyard.
Take your sword. There happens to be a
criminal wailing to be beheaded."
The headsman obeyed, went down into the
court yard, was confronted with his victim,
and swept out his sword across the man's
throat The head did sot move.
"Clumsy wretch I" cried the sultan.
"Sire," said the executioner, without winc
ing, "have you a snuff boxr
"Yes, what for?"
"Do me the favor of holding the snuff
under the criminal's nose."
The sultan did as he was asked. The man
sneezed and the head fell off at the feet of the
astonished monarch. This was a good stroke
of work, or I am very much mistaken.
M. Richepin, the famous novelist, has a

and at last he is condemned to death for a

flere is nn incident which shows.how care
fully tho principles of acoustics should be ap
plied to a building. A church had been
erected in Shoilleld in which the preacher was
altogether unheard, however great his exer
tion. Various unsuccessful expedients were
trind, until the incumlieut, happily in this
case a scientific man, had a large parabolic
reflector of light wood constructed and so
suspended that the pulpit was in the focus of
By such an arrangement the rays cf sound
issuing from the focus of the mirror would
be thrown forward as a parallel beam. The
consequence of this was that every word ut
tered in the pulpit could be distinctly beard
throughout the church; Indeed, the speaker
was more distinctly heard at the far end than
at the intermediate portions, because this
parallel beam of sound was directly cast upon
those in the distant gallery. Unfortunately,
however, the reflector acted in both direc
tions. If any one whispered in that distant
gallery the sound of the whisper was gath
eree" into tho focus of the reflector. The
preacner placed in that focus thus heard all
the remarks thnt happended to be made by
the people sitting in tho gallery, and as it
was anything but pleasant to preach and
listen to criticism on the sermon at the same
time the reflector after awhile had to be taken
down. Chambers' Journal.
