iUuse cases are mire core non than one
would think," tho scout said, '-and many of
tuem muse tho sauclcsv kinil of a story."
Upon being urged to spin a yarn, limine
reluted the following i icidnut:
HE WAS A TllEASt'RK.
"Scouting," ho said, "has boon more of a
pastime with me thin anything else. My
main interest on tho plains is cattle raising,
and the story I shall t jll U ouo that occurred
on a ranch. One day a young fellow came
into our camp looking for a job. His nation
ality wiw sn-clearly n arked that at his first
apjicarance he was greeted with the rough
but hearty salutation of "Hello, English!' He
was English without any doubt. He said he
bad boon tramping for a loug time, had been
to any number of camps, but had found them
all full, and he wanted to go to work badly.
Well, w o needod ano her hand just then, so
wo took hint, though it was with rather an
idea that he was som-ithiug of a tenderfoot
Iu this wo soon found ourselves mistaken. It
was n mildiints and evident gentleness of
character that had given the impression.
English had been on the plains long enough
to know his business, but tho roughuess, the
bravado thut so many acquire had passed
him by without a mm k. The days were few
before we found we had a treasure at least
he waa such to the follows who were always
willing somo ono ulso should do what they
ought to do, and Engll ih was so good natured,
so willing, that at tlrjt I atn afraid he was
Imposed upon dreadfu Jy, but before long he
sort of crept inro our hearts, ami we felt most
as though it was wicked to take advantage of
his good nature.
"Our camp was rretty tough, and we
didnt ordinarily stor much ou account of
things being wicked, but we let up on K'igllsh
Just the same. You see, he had done every
boy in camp more or ljss favors. When one
fellow was sick Englisi did all his share of
the work and his own. too, and then tended
the sick chap nights, tlaying awake to give
him his doje regularly. There was hardly
one of us that didn'r. owe English money.
He always said he had no use for it, and said
it, too, with a sadness that made a fellow feel
there was a bitter he irtaehe behind all his
moke believe choerfulress. At first the boys
used to guy poor English, and uak him qne
tions about 14s home and all that kind of
stuff, and I have scon the tears start in hU
eyes as he turned away and left the crowd.
English certainly had a history, and it was
undoubtedly a sod one He got so he would
seldom sit in the cabin with us, but would go
away by himself, not in any morose spirit,
but he always seemed afraid the boys would
speak to him of thirgshe did not care to
hear. I said awhile at o that we wore pretty
tough; I guess we were no worse (ten
most of the fellows out there, but we did play
cards to beat anything.
THEY'D DONE ENOUGH snoOTWa.
. "One night and you can bet X shall never
forget It there was a game going on. On
fellow had been losing right along for several
days and hod got ptetty sore. This night
his luck was as bad, or worse than it had
been, and he l't all b: money, and, in fact,
about everything he Lad, mill his anger got
the upper hand of bin.. One fellow seemed
to have been more lui ky tliat night than all
the rest of us, and very naturally the follow
who had lost felt particularly bitter toward
this chap, and in a moment of rage he said
the thing that nover iiniong us fellows fails
to bring out a gun. E e said the winner had
cheated. Knowing full well bimsulf the re
sult of such a charge, bis pistol was out as
soon as the words, and in a blind rage ha
fired. Close as was his intended victim, his
anger nnsteadied his am and he failed to bit
bua. Hia pohition wai such tbat be faocd th
door of the cabin. Thix door, unevenly hung,
would, when opened, tswing to of its own ac
cord, and iu the excitement of the moment
no one had noticed tb door open and close,
but before a word cool 1 be spoken there came
to us the sound of a fail and a groan.
"Two at least of those who sat tbera In a
kind of awe stricken wonderment, as the
smoke circled in clou is around the room,
heard that noise. The lumped to their feat
and passed outside. Tlie rest ol us were too
much excited to notic anything except to
combatants; both hod their guns out now
and bad jumped for xholtar, each eager to
pepper the other, but before another snot
could be fired an occnirenoe took place that
made us instantly f or et our excitement of a
moment before. The t wo boys who bad com
out returned. As they pushed open the door
it could be seen they trsre carrying soma bur
den. In a moment tiey were in the room,
and one of them said, in a voice sad and sol
mn: 'Boys, I guosa you have done shooting
enough for one night. Do you see what you
have doner They laid the form they were
bearing gently down upon the floor and we
all rushed forward to tie who it was. It was
poor English. He hac been sitting all alone
while we were carousing and bad just at
tempted to enter when a bullet, intended for
another, went through his heart. English
waa dead, and all we knew of him was the
nickname we bad ourt elves given him. He
had never told us of bit friends, and we could
only bury him and put a slab at the bead of
his crave, on which w is scrawled as best we
coulu the one word "I'.nglisU." Perhaps bis
friends or relatives ar.j still waiting for bim
to return. Tbey will never see bim, nor will
hundreds of other friends see those they ore
hoping and expecting to see. They lie in
lonely graves on the open plains, unmarked
except by nicknames." Chicago Herald.
Gentlemen s Button.
The old time plait bosomed shirt and the
pearl buttons on it, sevn by Hand, are nearly
things of the past. Patent collar buttons,
separable and levers, are coming into the
market every day. Veil dressed men, Who
formerly looked down "on "snide" jewelry,
bow use plated collar buttons, for the many
used justify the good t uality at a moderate
price; and it Is astonishing the number sold.
As we used to say of p as, "What becomes of
them allf The same could be said of plated
jewelry .generally. Tu desire for change
and the really beaut ful patterns tempt so
many; and all retailer encourage it, prefer
ring frequent sales and at the same time giv

THE TATTOOER'S ART. I
Picture Worked Into the Hainan Flesh
With Needles and Ink.
"In case I should be drowned or killed by
accident there will be no trouble in identify
ing mo," remarked a rotiredsoa captain in
conversation with a Ietroit reporter; "I
have the initials of my name, the American
eagle and the dag of my country tattooed ou
"I stipitosfld that practice belonged only to
the common sailor," suggested a comrade.
"Well, as a usual tiling, a man has to be
come a common sailor before he is an uncom
mon one. 1 know a naval officer in high
position who always keeps one hand gloved
to hide an anchor tattooed on the back of
"Tattooing Is not compulsory, is itr
"Mot at all. Sailors acquire the cuttom of
tattooing each other as a pastime. Young
sailors are tattoood, and when they rise in the
service are ashamed of it, but once tattooed
always tattooed; nothiug but being skinned
will get it o(t."
"How is it donef asked a listener.
"With India ink, Vermillion and other pig
ments. The usual way is to stick a number
of fine cambric needles Into a cork by the
eyes. - The picture, name or initials are then
outhned on the skin and the pigment spread
on. Then the noodles are jabbed in to make
tbe impression. Some of the work is done
very picturesquely. I saw a picture tattooed
on a sailor's breast. It was a ship, with all
sails set, leaving port. A lady stood on the
pier waving a handknrchief, and the words
tattooed wero, 'A pleasant voyage and
speedy return. Oood-by.' On the deck of
the ship a man was tattooed, and from his
mouth came tho words, "Good by, sweet
''Have you any idea how tho practice orig
inated f" inquired another party.
I have heard," said the captain, "that it
was during the time of flogging in the Amer
ican merchant service, but 1 don't know how
true it is. It was said that the sailor hi
those days would have the American flag tat
tooed on his back with tho motto, 'He who
strikes his country's Hag is a coward."
"Now, cap," said tho comrade, "haveu't
you a girl tattoed near your heart ?"
The captain fidgottod a little before he ad
mitted that hn had.
''It's a common thing," ho said, "for young
sailors to have a sweetheart tattoed over
thoir hearts or on their arms as a charm to
bring them back again. And thoy have the
Virgin Mary done in India ink, too, and
horseshoes, anchors, crosses and other signs.
I knew a sailor who had rings, a chain brace
let and garters tattoed on him. A full rigged
ship is a favorite design. But I think the
practice is going out. It is not so common as
it was before the war. Thon if you visited a
man-of-war you would find every man on
Monkeys at a Shrine.
Here was a spot where, beneath tbe shadows
of the "abodes of the gods," the world's two
greatest sects, forgetting their differences,
badclasped bands, where Hindoo ism and
Buddhism had bound together in one volume
thoir Sanscrit shastras and the writings of
Confucius, and where the Mongolian from
IV kin and the Malubari from Itameshwaram
bent the knee side by side in the same sacred
precincts, consecrated alike to Buddha and
Siva. On the other hand, the "shades of the
ancestors," assuming the forms of monkeys,
disported themselves and mado light of these
hallowed scenes, defiling even the holy of
holies, taunting the most devout with winks,
smirks and fiendish grimaces. Then, as if it
was all a good joke, they would add injury to
insult by daring, on the sly, to suatch with their
sacrilagious paws the votive offerings out of
the very hands of the sin stricken penitents;
would impudently retire with their booty
and sit down to eat it at their leisure, perched
up beside the nostrils of the gods themselves,
and wiping their whiskers on the divine
heads. What was mint surprising, no one
seemed to take notice of them or resent their
conduct, and great was the astonishment
manifested by the monkeys when we went at
them for trying to upset our camera, and
especially when an old red faced one, who
must have once been a thorough scoundrel of
a Hindoo, thought of appropriating our
camera cioth. Harper's Magasino.
Two Vules of Cooks.
Most cooks unless they are chefs don't
like to cook. But Mrs. Stanford, the wife of
the Central Paciflo millionaire, has a cook, a
Chinaman, of course, who just delights in
cooking. She seat him to a cooking school in
New ork, where all the art and all the
science are taught. He came back knowing
it all, and ever since has been as eager for a
chance to show his newly acquired skill as a
small boy ou a bicycle. He longs for a dinner
party, and will never be entire! happy until
his mistress gives one every day in the week.
He reminds me, says a Washington corre
spondent, of the German cook on Dr. Isaao
Hayes' Arctic ship, who never left bis galley
until Christmas day, when the skylarking
sailors drew him out on deck and into the
"Cook," demanded one of them, "wouldn't
you rather dance than cookt"
"No, thank God," said the cook, "I likes to
ork." New York Star.
A City of Bookmakers.
Sir Walter Scott has not escaped tbe statis
tical juggler, and we are given a lively idea
of the former immense popularity of the
great Scotchman's romances. Down to 1858
there had been printed of hie "Life and
Works" 7,9u7,!K volumes, requiring 89,5fta
reams of paper, which weighed tons.
Tbe People's Edition required 7,SS1 reams,
or 2,848 tons of paper. The number of sheets
used was 100,54,438, which, laid side by side,
would cover 8,SC3 square miles. During tho
period when Scott was editing the Complete
Edition of his novels uo less than 1,000 per
sons, one-hundredth part, of the population
of Edinbui g, were occupied in the manufac
ture of the books. In other words, imagine a
town or western city of 8,000 or 4,000 in
habitants finding their sole support in the me
chanical production of the romances of one
literary man. Scribuer's Magazine.
Saccharin a a Food Substance.
The extensive use of saccharin in certain
food substances in Paris in champagne, for
instance bos caused the counsel of hygiene
to institute a series of inquiries into its effects
upon the animal economy. Tbe commission,
which has recently reported, was unanimous
in considering saccharin a medicament rather
than an aliment or food proper; and they
thought the employment of the substance iu
alimentation should be prohibited. The com
mission intimated, however, that they con
sidered it might advantageously be used as a
substitute for sugar in certain diabetic con
ditions of the human body. Herald of Health.
A Chicken with Four Wings.
C. C. Brown, of Duluth, Minn., unearthed
a genuine freak in tbe shape of a mammoth
cochin rooster, which bas four distinct wings,
two in their natural places and one at tbe
knee joint of each leg. The bird weighs about
sixteen pounds, is alive and well, and uses all
four wings when flying. An offer of $250,
made by a Chicago party, was refused, and
tbe bird will be exhibited throughout the
country. Chicago Herald.

Baltimore, April 20, 1887. For over
twenty years I have been troubled with
ulcerated bowels and bleeding piles, and
grew very weak and lain from constant
loss of blood. I have used four bottles of
B. B. B., and have gained 15 pounds in
weight, and feel better in general health
than I have for ten years. I recommend
your B. B. B. as the best medicine 1 have
ever used, and owe my improvement to

A GOOD EXPERIMENT.
Meridian, Miss., July 12, 1887. For
a number of years I have suffered untold
agony from the effects of blood poison .
I had my case treated by several proinU
ncnt physicians, but received but little, if
any relief. I resorted to all sorts of pat
ent medicines, spending a large amouDt
of money, but yet getting no better. My
attention was attracted by the cures said
to have been affected by B. B. B., and
commenced taking it merely as an exper
iment, having but little faith in tho re-:
suits. To my utter surprise I soon com
menced to Improve, and deem myself to
day a well and hearty person all owing
to the excellent Qualities of B. B. B. I
cannot commend it too highly to those
suffering from blood poison.
