against his ribs, tti tied his liver over
and played footb:tll with iiis lungs, and
when it finally reulied daylight the
sound put everybody in mind of a dray
horse choking to di ath on a Uirnip. It

He grew rod in the face again, his
eyes rolled like a man in a fit, ami when
the cough came the 1 river looked back
and the conductor looked in. In his
struggles to net the cough out the old
man's hat flew off a id one end of his
collar broke loose. Three or four pas
sengers got up as if to get out, but when
he had finUiied he waved his hand to
them to sit down and said:
'Don't nobody b; skcart. I've hail
this 'ere cough fur 'leven years, and
thar's no occasion to be alarmed."
"I should think you'd curt; it," said
the man who had sp ken before.
"Can't do it,. If it was a cold I could,
but 'tain't a cold. I swallowed a bone,

This time the cough lifted him up and
dropped him down, Miook his hat off be

his gray overcoat, Mid everybody held
his breath expect ing to see the ,ld man

The conductor came iu to see what was
the trouble, and t'nr"0 women insisted
on getting out in the middle of the block.
"I'm sorry," said the old man as he
put on his hat and wiped the t":irs from
his eyes, "but bones s hones, and I can't

THE WORLD'S FIRST ARTISTS.
Cave Men of Primeval Day
Their Artintic Carviti;H.
Thousands of years before any recorded
history, in those ancient times when the
greater part of Knrope was covered with
ice and snow, and the reindeer and the
huge mammoth roamed over the plains, a
race of men existed whose dwellings were
caves, or the shelter of overhanging rocks.
The cave men are supposed to have resem
bled somewhat the Kskimos of the present
day. They were fond of cutting figures of
animals on pieces of bone and ivory, and
their work is said to be the oldest artistic,
carving in the world.
A llAUBAKIC ARTIST.
At I.e Moiistier, in France, there were
due up some years ago several objects be
longing to the prehistoric period. Amoni(
t lie most inrerest ing of these was a frag
ment of a tusk of the mammoth, on which
was carved a likeness of the animal itself.
The mammoth was a huge creature,
much huxei than elephants of the present
day, covered with long reddish hair and
armed with curved tusks. As an entire
carcass was found imbedded in the ice, in
Siberia, where it had lain for ages, its gen
eral appearance is known, ami the cave
man who carved the wonderful relic of
primeval rimes wiili his flint, knife, cor
rectly gave in out iines t he likeness of the
animal. The illuM ra'inu here given is of
double interest, show ing, as it does, the
curious relic descriitetl and giving an idea
of the appearance anil dress of the bar
barian wliii carved it.
