-THE. ROCK ISr,AKT ARGU8. SATURDAY, MARCH 23. 1889
Young Lochlnvar came to from the west

The width of hi hat brim could nowhere be beats

Hie girdle waa horrent with pistols and things.
And bejlouriehed a handful of aces on kings.
The fair Mariana sate watching a star, "
When who should turn up but the young Loch In

And be reined up his hosa with stentorian whoa,
Then turned oo the maiden a rapturous grin
And modestly asked if be mightn't step in.
With prenence of mind that was marrelous quite,
The fair Mariana replied that be might;
Bo In through the portal strode young Lochiarar,
Preempted the claim and cleaned out the bar;
Though the Justice allow od he wa'o't wholly to

THE BIRD DETECTIVE.
A little wizened looking man of chunky
build with a stubby and un prosperous beard
ef lightkh brown color, a pair of sharp, sus
picious eyes which darted at your face now
and again very kocnly, and a mouth that
seemed to have been wrung away from bit
ing knotty crusts, or perhaps by the ravages
Truthfully Dick bad taken his share of
crusts with the world, fur they seemed to
have been his natural inheritance. He was
pat off with crusts when too small to re
monstrate at the injustice, and every one
seemed to have followed in the track of his
parents with their donations of crusts, sup-.
posing him to Ix) a receptacle for thorn. This
is a way that the world seems to have. This
stintiug and stunting had warped Dick's na
ture and given him a dry, harsh tone as it
bad an unlovely face and figure, but he bad
never budged at his destiny, taking to the
crusts as they came along and crunching
them bittor or sweet with the dogged hope
that some day the people who had bean got
ting the gingerbread would change places
This was not a nice spirit for a young man
to cultivate, and some people good deal bet
tar off than Dick might criticise it, although
they might have no objection to his sating
It was, therefore, the fortune of Dick not
to be loved much either by his family or bis
neighbors, while against his greater neighbor,
mankiud, ho nursed almost iuwndbly a little
well deserved grudge on his own account.
Withal, he was prosperous in a way, a Tory
bumble one, and in an avocation not usually
chosen by ambitious people. It was not
chosen by Dick, with whom necessity sup
plied the place of preference in a good many
He was ongaged in the sale of second hand
clothing in the great center of that trade, the
renowned Baxter street, of which the sur
roundings, although unique, are painfully
uarouiantic, and where the uames of the house
of Isaac predominate over all others, ancient
and uiodorn. The storo was not the property
of Dick, but of the Widow Creecy, upon
whose death it would belong to Dick, bis
brother and two sisters.
Dick, however, constituted the manage
ment, as the willow was bedridden, the daugh
ters laxy and the brother 'Worthless.
With these conflicting elements it was
bardly possible to expect an angelio dispo
sition of Dick, who, in order to get the crusts
which kept body and soul together, was shut
up eternally in the grim looking store among
the cast off garments, while tho others
amused themselves as they liked best and
abased Dick for variation.
The drudge confined his attention to busi
ness and let them go, a course he bad found
to be the most profitable and had consequent
ly adopted. By this means he bad brought
the affairs of the family from bankruptcy
into the comfortable condition of a thousand
This thousand dollars was kept iu a safe in
a store ready to be expended at any moment
when a favorable opportunity presented for
sorting up stock.
The sole companion of Dick during all this
long apprenticeship to patience and thrift
and the miscellaneous virtues which go to
make a successful merchant, was a meager
and dilapitatad jackdaw.
Between Dick and tho jackdaw existed a
strong sympathy and sometiiing of a resem
blance. They both looked Inured to hard
knocks. The jackdaw was minus a leg and
an eye. II is survival was due to the inter
ference of Dick, who hud purchased its Im
munity from further mutilation at the bands
of brother by administering a licking to him.
Since then the bird hod devoted itself to
Dick with the gratitude which the dumb cre
ation invariably shows for kindness from
man. There was even a similarity in tho
manner of speech of the jackdaw and Its
master, for the bird could snak fluently a
few sentences which Dick with some care
bad taught it to remember, and the incisive
style tn which it said these things had bean
copied unconsciously by Dick.
There was also a sagacious and sententious
manner about the jackdaw which Dick, prob
ably from studying it, bad adopted to ad
vantage. But if the jackdaw's preference for its de
liverer was marked, its dislike for the brother
who bad maimed it was quite as conspicuous.
At bis approach Jack would select dark and
secure corner, from which retreat it would
never venture till he had left the place. From
this corner, with the red light of its eyes
gleaming like diabolic fire, it would watch its
enemy with a malignant look terrible to wit
ness even in a bird.
Unmistakably they loathed one another,
and it was doubtful if the vanity of the Jack
daw could ever have been appeased for the
loss of its log and eyo, even if its hatred bad
been overcome, pride being such a strong in
gredient in its nature.
It was the custom of Dick to close up bis
store at about 10 p. m., and after bolting
himself securely in, to retire to a comfortable
crib he had made himself in the back of the
store. Sometimes, it was true, be consoled
himself for an hour with his story paper, but
more often, being tired, be went straight to
The Jackdaw, perched on a beam some ten
feet above him, watched over the slumbers
of the young merchant as if it bad been bis
It waa some two hours after he bad ad
journed to bed, one wet, miserable winter's
night, that Dick was awakened by bis friend
the Jackdaw in the way it usually awoke him
when he overslept himself in the morning or
when suspicious sounds roused the fears of
It was by pecking gently at its master's
nose that the jackdaw roused Dick from his
slumbers and brought him, rubbing bis eyes,
to his feet.
Dick soon discovered the cause of the Jack
daw's alarm. There was some one tapping
gently on the window. Pulling on his trous
ers, Dick went immediately to the front of
the itore, and found that bis brother Barry
was outside beseeching admittance. There
was not much love lost between the brothers,
as Dick looked upon Harry as a scapegrace,
whose deficiencies he had to make good by
extra labor, and Harry considered Dick as
the worst kind of a curmudgeon.
80 with some reluctance Dick let the door
drop, and his brother walked iu, smelling
very strongly of rum aiul toltacco and ap
pearing to be in no good rtunior. Dtek care
fully bolted tho door after him and led the
way tip the store to where the stove ttlll
burned brightly, and pushing a scat toward
bis brother be snt down opposite to him
"Well, what b it you want with me now
you are insider
A drunkon smllo came over the face of the
loafer as be blurted out:
"Borne of that stuff as you have salted
down, my boy. I'm in a hole, and I want a
hundred dollars to get me out of it."
"A hundred dollars I" answered Dick with
amazement and indignation; "and what do
you think 1 have scraped and worked early
and late fori That you might go offend
spend a hundred dollars of the savings when
you thought of itf You might have spared
yourself the trouble of calling me out of bed,
for you certainly wont got a nickel here." -
"Listen to de how," said the other with a
derisive chuckle. "Think yoll bluff me off,
do you, matey 1 Now, look ye here, Dick,

I must have the moucy or else go to prison.
Now, I ain't guiu' to do no mich thing when a
brother of mine has got his hand right on a

"That's all right," answered Dick. "Keep
away from crooks an' the like, an no one'll
ask yer to go tor prison."
"Come, Dick," said the other, trying con
ciliatory measures, "give us a tenner to satisfy
the cop, an' 111 see my mother about the bal
ance in the morning. Ton my word, I'm
only out on parole. I promised to be back in
Jen minutes with the money, and they just
enow where to put their bands on me this
There was an ugly, artful look in the fel
low's eyes when be said this that would have
made Dick cautious about opening the safe if
he had been dealing with a stranger, but he
did not think ill enough of his brother for
that, and so, to rid himself of the nuisance,
he unlocked the door and took out a roll of
The sight of the money seemed to rouse the
avarice of his companion, and stretching
hastily forward he tried to snatch the roll
from his brother's grasp, but was not quick
The ba filed man looked at Dick for an in
stant with an ugly scowl, and the next mo
ment his hand was round bishroat while
Dick was struggling on the floor. -
'Tolicol police! let me up I" shouted Dick,
clasping his roll of money closer.
Thon in an instant he saw a glittering blade
in his brother's hand descending towards
"Oh, spare mo, Harry I" cried the helpless
Dick ; but bis cry for mercy came too late; the
knife was plunged deep into bis body, and
the red banded Cain was the possessor of the
fruits of his industry.
There were no traces of drunkenness about
the murderer now.
The shock of bis desperate action had so
bered him. Ho looked at the dead body at his
feet and kicked it aside. Then Le turned to
the safe and taking the money placed it in
his own pocket.
Next be approached the window and looked
out into the street
It was unusually quiet. There was not a
human being in sight.
Once more he returned to the scene of bis
butchery. The body of Dick lay still and
harmless on the floor. He lifted his eyes
to look around, and for the first time be saw
the jackdaw seated on its perch looking in
tently at him as if perfectly aware of all that
"Now your champion is gone I'll settle
scores with you, black devil!" said tho mur
derer as with a savage oath he attempted to
capture the bird. But his old enemy was too
keen for him; dodging behind shelves and
bundles he managed to elude pursuit, and so,
fearing to risk staying longer, he made sure
that the course was clear and disappeared
into the dismal night.
When the inurdur of Dick Creecy was dis
covered the best detectives in the city woro
put on the case to work it up.
It proved, howover, to bo one of those u n
solvable mysteries with whu-'h the police
often nave to deal Each clew, after being
inevitably correct, proved to be a mi re chi
mera and was reluctantly abandoned until
finally tho case was considered to be exhausted
and was given up, .
Meanwhile tho Widow Creecy, after bury
ing ber son, decided to sellout the clothing
store, and the stock was announced for sale
Mot the slightest breath of suspicion had
ever been directed towards Horry, but never
theless he bad avoided the store by a land
of instinct over since tho murder, and entered
it for the first time while the sale was go
There wero not many jieople present a
lew of the neighbors engaged in the same
business, were looking for bargains, and a
solitary detective who had dropped in acci
dentally with the vague idea that he might
find a clew.
As soon as Harry arrived the detective
walked over and sat down beside him to talk
over the case. They were near the stove.
and the auctioneer was standing on the exact
place where the struggle had happened. The
aetective was propounding some absurd ideas.
and Harry was amused to think how far off
bis conclusions wore from the right point.
Suddenly, during a slight pause which hod
occurred in the business, a scream was heard.
Tbo murderer looked up to the place from
which it came and his head turned strangely
dizzy. What did be heart What was the
sound which held all the people spellbound
and directed all eyes to himself?
"Oh, spare me, Harry 1 Oh, spare me,
Harry I Oh, spare me, Harry I"
Right through his brain that sickening
sound seemed to go, while there, perched up
on toe seat, sat the jackdaw, with the diabolic
fire burning in its eyes, screaming as if it
would never stop this lost appeal his brother
bad made when he had madly plunged the
knife into his bosom.
In vain the disconcerted man tried to re
cover himself and to smile off the deadly
sickness which had come over him. Before
the malignant gaze of those two eyes riveted
mercilessly upon him he quailed andttrembled.
and as the murderer tried to shuffie out from
the crewd around him the detective laid his
band upon his shoulder and whispered:

For thirty yean he has been before tbe
public ever surprising! them with his
drolleries and seemingly unexhaustible
fund of humor. He has traversed the
whole field of comedy, from the old
standard Engish works to tbe bright,
bubbling skits of the present day, and
lent grace and beauty to every part he
has ever essaye d. The play which is the
vehicle of his jjenius this year is called
!A Sky Scraper," or Dennis O'Dowd;
and is from the pen of Mr. Heege, who
will be remembered as author of "Want
ed the Earth." Concerning tbe play
the Kansas City Journal, of October 5,
"A Sky Scraper" had its initial Kansas
City presentat on at the Warder last
night by John Dillon and company. It
is a srood faroe comedy. Particularly
commendable is the wit of its dialogue
and the distinctness of its characters.
The central cbsracter is Dennis O'Dowd,
(Mr. Dillon) a clairvoyant, who is much
the worse for v ear at the opening of the
play, but whote business flourishes as
one by one the other characters come to
bim for information. Bis position makes
him the confident of a number of myste
rious personages, all of whose secrets be
uses to bis own advantage and so works
up a thriving business. He is beset by a
red haired, strcng minded spinster, who
must marry sotie one in order to save her
estate. This sr me spinster has an elder
brother who tries to spoil tbe match; in
vain, however, for finally the marriage
takes place and Dennis thus becomes the
possessor of en rmous wealth.
