somewhat admiringly, fi r Tootsy's under
sized feet were a never failing source of
joy to their owner "why not send word to
him to stay away?"
There were several seconds of pregnant
silence. Then Colonel E liss, the landlord
of the hostelry of that, name, laid one
flnRer on the table with tome emphasis.
"My misguide1 an innercent yonng ten

Tootsy pondered; he lit tod to be thought
wanting in nerve, but 1 naily wilted, and
requested the barkeeper .o give the gentle
men what they wanted.
The next day is a red 1,'tter mark in the
history of Adamsville. iseveral of us
were sitting on the steps iu front of the
Hotel Bliss, still discussing Phil Holmes,
when the mail carrier from Woodruff
came along. "Say, you fellers," he sang
out, "1 s'pose ye heered 'bout tV weddin
in high sassiety over t' Y'oodrufT?"
We hadn't, and were curious to learn.
"W'y, Phil Holmes n Spanish Dick
was hitched las' night, Jedge Uowker
But this was not t he tnd of the matter.
When the stage from do-vn the gulch stop
ped at the Hotel Bliss ao noon there was
another sensation of high degree. Instead
of the usual cargo of seisoned mountain
eers there was a woma I not only that,
but the woman was of a kind we had not
gazed upon for many a day a lady! Not
only a lady, but a very pretty one, and she
had a child, a little cu -ly headed tot of
four or five, with her. Will Borden, the
manager of the Lady Alice mine, was sit
ting next to me, and I h ard hun draw his
breath sharply. Then here was nobody
belonging to the house about he rose,
lifted his hat and advanced to assist her
with her baggage, which courtesy was ac
cepted with a smile thi.t made every man
Jack of us long to kneel lown and worship
They entered the "office," a little ln
closure just off the barr join, and we could
hear them talking, although we could not
distinguish a word. T'len Fiorden called
to me and I went in. The lady was stand
ing by a chair, and her fnce wore an anx
ious expression, which v as very ueartears.
Borden looked puzzled.
"Lawrence," he asked, "do you remem
ber any one here by the name of Phil Har
mon? This lady is his wife and is seek
ing him. He was here up to nearly two
years ago, but she has not heard from hiui
I did remember such n man, holding as I
did the exalted position of postmaster. I
remembered that Phil Holmes sometimes
got letters under that i arne, but that was
his own affair. I looked at Borden a mo
ment, trying to convey with my eyes if
possible the informntio I 1 possessed, but
of course this effort was a failure. Then I
asked Mrs. llarmou tod 'scribe him, which
she did. I saw a lieudis i, murderous light
come into Borden's eyes. There w ere a few
sccouds of painful silence. Then Borden
"Madam, I 1 do remember him now,
"Please tell me nt once, sir. Is he
dead:" she asked quietl.-.
"I'm sorry to say, ma lam, that he is,"
faltered Borden. "lie lied of heart fail
ure last year."
She did not cry. In t ict, I thought she
looked relieved, as if a treat load of doubt
and sorrow had been lif ed from her mind.
1 excused myself and went down to the
In about nn hour B irden entered and
signified that he wautet: to see me in pri
vate. We withdrew to a corner. There
was a set expression I bout his eyes and
mouth I had never seen before.
"Lawrence," he said, "I think we both
understand this. Holmes, it is, of course?"
I nodded and he went on: "She that poor
girl has just told me a bout it all. 1 sup
pose she actually had tc tell some one, her
heart was so full. Lawrence, that scoun
drel is the worst hun nn fiend that ever
made a true little voixian's life mis
erable. Hanging is tio good for him.
But" antl Borden's usually pleasant
voice sounded very dangerous "that isn't
the way she'll be widowed. I said 'heart
failure.' Do you understand?"
I understood. We lo iked at each other
a moment, and then Borden went out,
mounted his horse ant. started for Wood
Borden had lied n iotit the date of
Holmes' demise, but th ;re was a few hours
later no doubt about tha fact and the man
ner of it. The gambler died that night
of heart failure, as I ki ew he would. Bor
den is a (le."d shot; H dmes, meeting him
ut Woodruff, was unlucky enough to get
into a quarrel with hi n, and Borden was
the quicker with his gr.n.

There was a cloudburst the next morn
ing and several bridges were carried away,
so Mrs. Harmon and her little girl staid at
Adamsville two weeks. Will Borden must
have become quite w II acquaintad with
her during that time, fi r a few weeks later
lie had pressing busii ess in the east, and
not long after that I got their wedding
cards. U. L. Ketchum in Argonaut.
A Maine gentleman j-ays that a pair of
robius had their nest on a fence near his
house, while a pair of catbirds had built
in a bush near by. Tl e two pairs hatched
out their young atabi ut the same time,
and all went well for teveral days. Then
the catbirds were seen no more; probably
they had been shot.
The young catbirds were evidently starv
ing. When the robins came with a worm
or other bit of food for their yonng they
always alighted on the top rail of the fence
before hopping down to the nest, nnd every
time this happened the catbirds opened
their mouths, thrust up their heads and
made a great outcry.
Presently it was not ced that the robins
Were feeding the hun ry orphans. Every
Idght, too, while one of the robins covered
their own young, its mate performed the
same service for the ci third fledglings.
In this way both broods were reared, the
catbirds growing up as strong and lively
as though they had be :n cared for through
out by their own parents. Youth's Com

Facts and Fancies Regarding; the Short
est Month In the Year.
February, like January, claims Kama
Pompilius for father, since the month was
called into being by that monarch to com
plete the twelve he designed the year to
To February he gave only twenty-nine
days, excepting in leap year, when it was
to have thirty; but the Emperor Augustus,
unwilling that his own month, August,
should not have as many days as any other
(it then possessed only thirty), took one
away from already shorn February and
tacked it on to August, leaving February
with only twenty-eight, "Except in leap
year, then's the time February's days are
The name February is said to be derived
from Februare, to purify, to expiate, and
is taken from the fact of the purification
undergone by the Komans at this time.
The signs of the zodiac for this month are
Aquarius Pisces, appropriate in so far as
the month is popularly supposed to be the
wettest of the year, but incorrect statistic
ally, since two or three others frequently
show a greater rainfall than does February.
It is possible, however, that the signs bore
reference to what February ought to be.
All old distiches connected with the month
agree that plenty of rain should fall in it
for agricultural reasons too obvious to
mention. "A the months of the year,"
says one, "curse a fair Februeer." And an
other mentions that snow is more welcome
February fill the dyke
Either with the black or white;
If it be white, it's the better to like.
Thus writes Spenser about the month:
Then came old February, sitting
In an old wagon, for he could not ride.
Drawn of two fishes, for the season nttinir.
Candlemas Day, Feb. 2, otherwise known
as the Purification of the Blessed Virgin
Mary, has climatic traditions associated
with it. Thus says an old Scotch rhyme:
If Candlemass Day be dry and fair.
The half o' winter's to come and mair:
If Candlemass Day be wet and foul
The half o' winter's gane at Yule.
This is the time to take down ChristmaH
decorations, reserving a bit of the yule log
to light the next Christmas log, and tc
preserve the house from ill luck during
the year. If the decorations be kept up a
day longer they will prove a source of dis
aster to the family, as Herrick remarks:
For look, how many leaves there be
Neglected tbeir maids: trust to me,
bo many goblins you shall see.
Largest Libraries In tlie World.
In Thomas Greenwood's book on public
libraries oocursthefollow-ing: "The largest
library in the world is that at Paris, which
contains upward of 2,000,000 printed books
and lOO.OOO manuscripts. Between the Im
perial library at St. Petersburg and t he
British museum there is not much differ
ence. In the British museum there are
about 1.500.000 volumes. The Royal library
at Munich has now something over 900,000,
but this includes many pamphlets; the
Royal library at Berlin contains SOO.OOO
volumes; the library at Copenhagen, 510,.

University library nt Gottingcn, Germany,

400,0tK) volumes, and t he University library,
in the same city, 370,000 volumes; at

300,000 books, the corresponding library at
Cracow nearly the same number, nnd at
The First Oxford-Cambridge Boat Rare.
In 1S29 the Canibsidge University Boat
ing club challenged the club of Oxford
university to a race on the Thames. This
was the first contest of the kind between
the rival universities and created great ex
citement. The course from Hambledon
Lock to the bridge at Henley was a little
more than two miles long, and the race was
rowed on the 10th of June. Every one
knows that the colors now worn are light
blue for Cambridge and dark blue for Ox
ford, but in lKi'J the former were dis
tinguished by pink, the latter by blue.
Although the Cambridge boys were the
favorites, the Oxford crew came in wiuners
by several boat lengths.
Literary Women Who Died Last Year.
In the list of literary women deceased
during the past year will be found the
names of Mme. Bodichon (lietter known in
literature as Bessie Iiayner Parkes), one of
the founders of Girt on college; Jessie
Fothergill, author of "The First Violin,"
and Mrs. Anne Moaslcy, editor of the
"Correspondence of Cardinal Newman." j

wrote in blank verse a singular essay on
"Time." The next year he wrote an invo
cation to the sun to shine on his garden,
which is nn amusing, almost pathetic,
mixture of poetry end pathos. At the nge
of twenty he gained the Newdigate prize
for poetry, and soon after abandoned the
muse because, as he said, he could not ex
press his ideas in verse.
The centennial of the "Marseillaise" will
be celebrated on April 25 in the little
French town of Choisy-le-Roy, the home

that marks his grave is the inscription,
"Wrhile the French Revolution in 17Ua was
fighting kings, he gave her, that she might
