"Where's Chiquitaf" some one asked
j A spasm of wrath convulsed the features
of the dytt g man.
j "Gone," he gasped;
cursed ten teiioot."
"How dii it all happen, Petef"
"He was there when 1 got there. Chi
quita was all dressed and ready to go off
with him womanlike, curse herl He saw
me coming. His horse was there. He
waited for me. Ob. the fellow was came

being there must have
made me nervous, for I missed my man
for the first time."
"Why, te pumped me full of lead before
I could pell trigger. Hit me five times.
Then he mounted and swung the girl up
in front of him. Old Ramon came up and
opened on him. I got up and followed
suit. He got back at us once his last
cartridgeand caught Ramon, for 1 heard
him groan. Then the tenderfoot yelled
and rode ff. Boys, give me a big drink.
I'm done f jr."
And when they brought the drink a fast
chilling corpse was all that was left of
Peter from Denver to drink it.

Chiquita went to a convent in St. Louis,
and left there four years later a cultured
and magnificently beautiful woman. She
will be pleased to receive any of Mr. Her

Back bay district in Boston, and if you
succeed in pleasing her she will tell you of

Om of Johnson's Bensrka.
We frequently meet with the expression,
"The potentiality of growing rich."
It is very properly attributed to Samuel
Johnson, end it is supposed to have been
incorporated in some of his writings. On
the contra -y, it was simply a remark of his
in connection with a very sordid transac
tion. ' He was one of the executors of the
will of Mr. Thrale, owner of a mammoth
brewery. Boawell tells us that Johnson
flitted around the premises like an excise
man, with an ink horn in his hand and a
pen in his buttonhole.
When af ked about the value of the prop
erty, he evideutly had one eye upon the
possibility s of the future. "We are not
here to sell a parcel of boilers and vats," he
said, "but the potentiality of growing rich
beyond tbs dreams of avarice." Subse
quent evei ts proved the correctness of his
judgment. The brewery is still iu ex
istence, ccvers a much larger area, and
during re-ent years has paid fl,(XK),000 a
year to the revenues of the government.
Tha Origin of Mrs. Grundy.
"What v-ill Mrs. Grundy sayf" is an ex
pression covering the feverish desire to
know whai other people may think or say
about us, especially in connection with the
proprieties of life. There are some who
suppose th it such a dame as Mrs. Grundy
really exit ted, whereas she was a mere
myth like Dominie Sampson, Pickwick,
Micawber and Becky Sharp. The exprea
aioa occur In Morton's comedy of "Speed
the Plow,'' written in 17M.
. . la the fief Farmer Ashfleld suddenly
turns npoa his good dame, after being
vexed at her frequent allusions to Mrs.
Grundy,' with the exclamation: "Be quiet,
wool yeF Always diug-doDging Dame
Grundy is to my ears. What will Mrs.
Grundy enyr What will Mrs. Grundy
tfainkf C ne't thee be quiet; let us alone,
and behave thysel', p ratty f. The constant
repetition of the one odd phrase caught the
ear of the public and has held it ever since.
