THE BUSINESS SETTLED.
A Iiittle Transaction Which Occupied
the Attention of but Two Men.
I had put up for the night at Saylers
ville, McGoflin county, eastern Kentucky.
I had traveled far on horseback during the
day and was very tired. Consequently, as
soon as I had finished a cigar after supper,
I told the landlord I'd like to be shown to
my room. 1 had got to bed and was just
pushing off from the shoreof wakefulness,
when 1 was startled by a loud voice in the
oflice immediately below.
"Say, lan'lord," shouted the voice, "is
Jim Williams hur?"
"Yes," returned the landlord.
"Wbar ias he?"
"Tell him I'd like ter see him."
"lie's gone ter bed."
"No matter ef he is. I've enm several
miles ter see him. Go up an tell 'im that I
want ter see 'im on that ar' little busi
ness." "The landlord arose with considerable
noise and proceeded to carry the message.
Up the creaking stairs he came, and
knocked at a room door adjoining mine.
"Hello!" sounded a sleepy voice. "What
j-er want, haiudi !-''
"That 's er feller down sta'rs as wants
ter see ye, dim."
"Who is it?"
"What does he want?"
"Didn't say, only he wanted ter see ye
on that ar' little biznes."
The man in the room smacked his chops
sleepily, ami after scratching and yawning
for a few- seconds said:
"Oil, ya.; 1 know about w hat he wants.
Go back an tell him ter please 'scuse me
till tnornin. 1 hain't had no sleep fer two
iiights, an am erbout tired t. r death. Tell
him ter stay all nitrht nn I'll pay his bill.
We can then sett Ie the iitt le business w hen
Ii ) 1 1 1 1 i it comes."
The landlord went down, the fellow
wheeled back in bed, struck a good still
suore and kept up the gate all night.
The tiext morning I went down stairs. I
entered the saloon and saw a fellow sitting
at the stove with a silent but very com
fortable expression on bis face. He was a
handsome, athletic looking mountaineer of
Jiboiu thirty. 1 sat admiring the fellow's
physical makeup for some time, when a
heavy step fell on the platform in front.
looking toward the door, I saw another
man of about thirty, smaller than the one
inside, but very compactly built, ruddy
He entered with a careless, uncertain
swing of his new boots, and, letting his
eyes fall on the man at the stove, his face
lit up with sudden animation and he cried

The r.lnrs unit Keils ef Sunset.
Observers of the gorgeous sunsets and
afterglows have been most particularly
struck with the immense wealth of the
various shades and tints of red. Xow, if
the glowing colors are due to t he presence
of dust in the air, there must bo some
where a display of the colors comple
mentary to t he reds, because the dust acts
by a selective dispersion of the colors. The
small dust particles arrest the direct course
of the rays of light and reflect them in all
directions; but they principally reflect the
rays of the violet end of the spectrum,
while the red rays pass on almost un
checked. Overhead deep blue reigns in awe inspir
ing glory. As the sun passes lielow the
horizon, and the lower stratum of air with
its larger particles of dust which reflect
light, ceases to be. illuminated, the depth
and fullness of tiie bine most intensely
iurrease. This effect is produced by the
very fine particles of dust, iu the skj over
bead lieing unable to scat ter any colors un
less those of short wave lenzths at the
violet end of the spectrum. Thus we see
above blue in its intensity without any of
the red colors.
When, however, tiie oliserver brings his
eyes dowu in any direction except the west
he will see tiie blue mellowing into blue
green, green and then rose color. And
some of the most beautiful aud delicate
rose tints are formed by the aircooling and
depositing its moisture on the particles of
dust, increasing the size of the particles
till they are suflieioutly large to stop and
spread the red rays, when the sky glows
with a strange auroralike light. J. G.

"Wilder ami the "enbuy.
Hurrying to the ferry one night, after
giving some recitat ions in Williamsburg, I
was stopped by a small boy with oue dirty
newspaper under his arm. For once iu
my life I had a chance to feel big, for that
boy was a mere mite. As I looked at him
I began to feel as I suppose old Goliath felt
when he looked at David, aud before he
realized that a boy with a sling can do
more damage than an army with banners.
The child had legs like pipestems, a face
like a dirty dull aud fingers like the claws
of a hawk.
"Mister," said he, waving his single pa
per before me, "wot's the dif'rence 'tween
you an me."
As I hadn't my guessing cap on, I gave
"Cause," said he, with another wave of
Lis paper and passing one band along the
front of my dress suit, "you're pooty well
stocked out in close an I'm pooty well
closed out o' stock."
So I had to buy the paper. Marshall P.

Volcanic Kemalns In Connecticut.
Several years ago, while walking down
the lower Connecticut valley with a party
of students, we chanced upon a curious
ledge of rock surmounting a low ridge by
the road that runs from Berlin to Meriden,
about half way between Hartford and New
Haven. A scramble up the slope through
a bushy growth of young trees led to the
foot of the ledge a thick bed of gray
greenish rock, not in layers like limestone
or sandstone, not crystaliiue like granite
or gneiss, but of a loose, structureless tex
ture, here and there carrying roughly
rounded blocks of a dense, dark rock
which we knew to be an old lava, from its
resemblance to the rocks ejected from mod
Although a ledge of this kind is not of
ordinary occurrence, its features were so
well marked that there could lie little
doubt of its nature and origin; it was a
bed of volcanic ashes, interspersed with
blocks or bombs of lava that must have
been thrown from some neighboring vent
long ago in the ancient time when the
rocks of the valley were made.
The ash bed lay upon a series of rnuddy
sandstones that had evidently been formed
under water, for they were deposited iu
layers, just as sand and mud are now when
they are washed into a pond; and to all ap
pearances the eruption of the ashes and
bombs had taken place during the accumu
lation of the sandstones. Professor W.
XL Davis iu Popular Science -Monthly.
The Mystery of Mark Island.
Mark isiand, the ledge off Small point,
was the home for two or three years of a
mysterious family. The cottage there was
erected live or six year ago by a man who
came with a line yacht, his wifa and a
mulatto boy and took possession. Thev
made friends with no one and never allowed
anybody to land on the islaud unless some
one broke au oar or was shipwrecked.
There is only one place where a landing
can bo made, and from its Iiench a path
leads to the bouse. In this path, at a point
which commanded a full view of the land
ing, the mulatto boy stood from daylight
till dark with a mi'..ket on his shoulder.
Two or three years tiiis strange family
spent on the island, aud then one spring
they did not come, nor have they lieenseen
or heard from since. But three years ago
a man was arrested in either Hoston or
New York for passing counterfeit money
who answered to the description of the one
who lived on Mark island. No attempt
was made to find his workshop, but some
folks think this was the place. Ix w iston
