The newsboy turned aronod, sold a pa

swung himself off the car just as the con
doctor came op and viciously jerked back
the change slide. Nobody paid any atten

"Yes; there they are:
The men protested that they had paid.
For a moment things looked very squally.
Then a man remarked that he had seen a
newsboy get off the car a moment before,
and suggested that perhaps he had stolen

Conrtio- on a Street Car.
A trim looking young woman got aboard
an up town surface car a night or two ago.
The car was by no means filled, bot sha
didn't try to get a seat, and shedidnt even
enter the door, but stood on the rear plat
form and leaned acaiast the rail. It was a
chilly night, and she and the conductor
had the platform to themselves. The other
passengers looked out in some surprise at
the sight, and beheld the pair enter into
conversation. That it was not their first
meeting by any means was as evident as
anything well could be. They talked long
and earnestly, and as block after block was
traveled they got closer and closer to one
another. There is always more or less jolt
ing abont a street car's movements, and
pretty goon the young woman was bracing
berself against the brake handle. Then
in a minute or two the conductor was seen
to turn the handle so that it would give
her a better support.
His arm moved with the iron, and to the
mont near sighted man in the car it was
very quickly aparent that the arm was
doing a vast deal more in the way of a sup
port than Ml to the lot of the brake han
dle. The car mennwhile wan rapidly ap
proaching the street at which one of the
passenger desired to alight. He hadn't it
in his heart to disturb the pair, and so he
started to leave the car by the front door.
The driver looked at him with a wiuk and
then spoke, as if to the world in general
and nobody in particular: ".Jack's in
luck," he said. "Pretty girl he's got, and
a good one. It looks oueer to see her out
therewith Lim. but i'.'s about her only
chance to him with the hours we have
and they've been married only a mouth."

. Intern Cfataai;
According to an Arkansas journal Dr.
Coll ns, of Little River county, that state,
killed a most remarkable quadra pad near
bis (lace in the spring of 1877. From the
time of tba war up until the year named
sere: -a! persons claimed to have frequently
seen an animal in the form of a large red
deer, with the bead and neck of a man.
On t le day that the animal was killed Dr.
Colli as' wife and a negro girl were going
-Ion; an unused path when they saw the
queeir creature peering at them through the
underbrush. They made baste and in
form 1 toe doctor what bad occurred. He
took his gun and started -in search of the
beast, which he soon overtook and shot.
Closer inspect ion showed that the bead,
tnstertd of being that of a man, more near
ly resembled that of a baboon. Its eyes
were large and very prominently set to the
sides of its head. A long fringe of brown
beard covered the chin and neck. Dr. Col
lins nays that when he came up with the
ereatire and leveled bis gun at it, it
seecH'd to be aware of its great danger, the
large eyes melting into tears as it saw the
utter hopelessness of the case.
When shot it uttered a heart rending
scraam and leaped high in the air, expiring
with awful groans which closely resem
bled t hoe of a man in distress. It is gen
erally believed that the creature was a spe
cies o!' the Mexican centaur, a semi-legendary
creature of the post conquest era.
Bibop Talbot told a story in Boston the
other lay showing that at least one Har
vard nan didn't leare hU win behind him
when be left college. The bishop, it seems,
arrive 1 one day in a small mining town in
his diocese Wyoming where he had
promi ed to hold a service. Waiting up
the street he noticed Mime green handbills
flying alxiut, took one up and read as fol
lows: "Bishop Talbot preaches to-night at
. Let him have a big crowd. Please
leave your guns with the usher."
The bishop was not easily scared, but
thought the last sentence a little odd. On
inquir7 he learned that one of the young
men it. town, a Harvard man, by the way,
who k-iew the bishop, and wanted to raise
a good crowd to greet him, had issued the
bandbi lis, knowing that many who would
not come to hear a bishop preach would
come nt a hint of a disturbance of any kind.

To Prote-t tbe Feet.
A mm compelled to stand or walk all
day on a hard floor or pavement is almost
certain to have tender feet and sore ankles.
The trt uble is not so much with the hard
ness of the floor as with the sadden jar ex
perienced by the foot every time it is set
down on the hard surface. If he will take
a fiat theet of rubber and cut out two
pieces j ist larce enough to fit on the in
side of bisshoe soles he will find immediate
relief, fr the rublier will break the jar
when tbe heel strikes the floor and save
foot and ankle from the strain to which
both ari subjected from a floor or hard
pavement. Interview in St. Lou is Globe
