In a newspaper. He calls it the story ol

Metropolis for a small town on the wide

Shore was great disappointment in the
own when the diurnal tramp failed to put
ii an appearance. Generally thev were
Ijiute punctual. Their visits averaged five
k week. The tramD of nerve cum n
iy that Will Davis, calmlv waitintr hinn-
fciv.-d when the train pulled in, was to offi
ce, lie was a dirty, greasy, wholly di
ipidated appearing fellow, with a desper
te air and a determined nock mark pel fn
1'he word was passed round that the vio.
tira had come. Will Davis treated him n
Hie other distinguished visitors had hwn
treated with an excellent dinner and ci
gars, lie was at the top notch of physical
'omfert. A hearty dinner, old rye and a
Havana hove a wonderful effect on a
K THE CEMETEKX.
Then the grave robbing scheme was
broached. The man thought it a capital
idea and a mighty good way to earn a pile
of money. "Pard, I can give you some
points on raising 'stiffs,' " he said to Davis.
"I'm an old hand at the business and no
one can do a better piece of work in that
line than I can." o the preparations j
were completed and the two waited" lor
nightfall. The town jokers also got ready.
In due time Davis and his friend went to
the cemetery with their tools and rigging
and commenced to work.
By way of digression it may be stated
that twelve or fifteen fellows supplied
themselves with white sheets and revolvers
and also went to the graveyard before
hand. Each one threw the sheet about
him and hid behind a convenient grave
stone. In the midit of the resurrection
proceedings of course it was on a mound
prepared for the purpose that they oper
ated these figures would rise up simul
taneously and with a series of unearthly
yells would fire off the blank cartridges
with which the revolvers were loaded.
The committeeman would beg his friend
the tramp to fly for his life, and in every
case heretofore the tramp had dropped
spado and tackle, and with yells outvying
the ghostly apparition would take to his
heels and get him out of sight as far as his
legs would carry him. He would never
come bock again, and that was the way
the town got rid of its tramp visitors and
had heaps of fun in securing that result.
But Will Davis tramp was another kind
uf breed. When he had dug a big hole and
seemed to be in a fair way of reaching the
buried treasure the figures rose up accord
ing to custom and began firing. Davis
rolled over and exclaimed: "Oh, I'm shot.
I'm killed. Kun, run for your life." Did
the tramp run? Not a bit of it. He turned
to Davis and in a courageous voice said:
"Partner, I'm here with you, and I'm go
ing to stay with you." And he took a big
revolver from each of his hip pockets and
began to fire, directing his bullets where
he thought the other shots came from. He
fired real balls, and Davis said that he
could bear them ringing against the grave
stones, and he trembled for the safety of
his joking comrades.
The way those jokers got out of that
cemetery was a caution. They did not ran,
I i like a lot of snakes they wriggled and
crawled out. Fortunately no one was in
jured, and it is a wonder, too, for that
tramp seemed to know how to use a revol
ver. "Will Davi was only too glad to quit
work and get back to town on the plea that
the surprise had disjointed his nerves. It
was some time after this before they treat
ed their tramp visitors in a like manner.

It has recently been demon
strated by the highest scientific
authority that catarrh and kid
ney troubles are intimately re
lated, and that one of the very
frequent eigns of disturbance of
the kidneys is to be found in
the presence of catarrh in the
head. It has long been suspec
ted that this was the case, for
when a patient Buffering from
catarrh, drove it away from his
head by the use of local appli
cations, it invariably made its
appearance in the kidneys. It
is evident, therofere, that mere
local applications to the nose to
heal the complaint are not only
useless, but worse than useless.
