A man with au evergreen two ounce phial
In bis hand went into a Lisbon street
druggist's at about 0 o'clock Thursday
evening, and, leaning over the counter,
said: "Kin yc n make hair dye?"
The druggist said that he could, and in
reply to the m t breathless inquiry of the
purchaser said that it would be good dye,
rould cost twenty cents a bottle full and
that it would do a good job.
"Fill her up. then, boss," said the man.
"Fill her up. It's more money'n I've been
payin, but darn the expense today. I kin
get that bottle full for ten cents in Au
gusta, but let tier rip."
The druggist proceeded to mix the beau
tiller, and the man was all the time tread
ing around like a boy in coppertoed boots.
He was a curi us looking man too. You
couldn't tell nhere he had lived, but it
was not in London or Paris. His mus
tache was yellow amidships and intensely
black on the t eam end. It was a sort of
blazer mustache i. c striped.
"He!" said he as he got it. "That's the
stuff. Thundcriu funny, but noue of the
folks down our way seem to have got otito
this. When 1 tlx up the gals are just gone
n me. They i re, honest."
"Is that so?" said the druggist, who saw
the point and encouraged it.v "Nothing
special going o i tonight, is there?"
"V a-a-I, I shouldn't wonder. (.Josh, I'm
going m ii.t up, inougu, tonignt. i-vr
clothes, new necktie all the tixiiigs. You
can't lose me tonight. Tonight I am on
earth. Look at that," said he, stroking his
mustache, "sh 's a regular jim dandy

Something good. Some of your best. I'm
out for all I'm .vorth tonight. I'm going
over to have my teeth cleaned and goin to
get 'er bath at i he laundry, and I've had a
haircut and a s lave.
"Nothing special. I hope." said the drug
gist with a win-c.
"Special!" slid he. "Special! Well
rather. I've a girl twelve miles down here
and I'm just from the woods. She hasn't
seen me yet, i nd when she does why I
reckon she'll just drop, and when shedrops
1 reckon 1 11 le there to catch her."
And we will bet he was, fortius is a dead
honest fact. Lew iston Journal.

The Sonne of the Danube.
The little town of Dnnaueschingen,
perched high in the invigorating air of the
Black Forest, has been arbitrarily desig
nated the sourci; of the Dauube. The
prince who owus most of the hind in the
neighborhood has built an ornamental
stone basin for a very powerful spring that
gushes out close to his palace and hfis
erected n portentous slab, notifying all the
world that this is the genuine source of
the greatest of European streams, that it
is 2.S40 kilometers to the Black sea and CT8
meters above tide water.
I ventured to point out to an intelligent
Black Forester who stood with me by this
monument that the real source of the
Danube was higl er up, but he regarded
my statement as outrageous. "Uott iu
Himmel!" said he piously. "Here lives
the prince, here is his palace, here is the
oflicial statement cut in the stone. What
more do you want;'"
I was silenced, but could not help feeling
that if an enterprising promoter could se
cure some other pi ince, get up a stock com
pany, hire a spri lg farther up, build a
summer hotel, call the place "Danube High
Spring" or "Danube Source Original,"
carve it in stone ai d make the rival prince

The evil repute of Halifax implied in

r ixniey was rear oraKeman on a
Southern Ohio train that broke in two
while he was on deck. He made for the
brake wheel to keep the rear section from
dashing into the forward part of the broken
train. The brake chain snapped, he was
thrown off the car before the wheels and
in an instant he bad both legs cut oS be
low the knee and one hand severed.
What was left of him was hurried upon
the engine to the station, fortunately very
near at band. 1 he stumps were amnu
tated and dressed without anaesthetics, the
call being too sudden and summons too
hasty to procure them if the man's life
was to be saved at all. Pat never uttered
a sound. Quivering with pain, white and
perspiring with agony, be never so much
as winced. Gangrene set in and the arm
had to be taken off above the elbow. But
the brakeman never uttered a moan.
Late one night, when be was still weak
from the second operation, the hospital cot
on which the shattered form lay broke
down. The patient fell to the floor, the
bandage was loosened upon his leg, the
ligatures burst and but for the quick ac
tion of the nurse Pat Conley would have
bled to death.
When the surgeon arrived the brake-
man's face was drawn with anguish. He
was so weak from loss of blood that it grew
doubtful whether life could be coaxed
back into his frame. Everything that
could be (lone was attended to at once.
Fainting, sick, racked with inexpressible
torture, the poor fellow looked up at the
surgeon, who was cumpelled to stoop tc
uis pillow tocatcli the teeule words. In a
whisper that was inaudible to the rest of
the room, Pat murmured: "Doc, how long
ought a feller te stand this before he hol
lers? 1 can't stand it much longer with
out cryin, but I don't want to do the baby
"For God's sake, Pat," cried the doctor.
"cry if you want to. It'll do you good."
Then, for the first time in all these days
of pain, Pat turned his face to the wall
and wept like a child. Omaha Bee.
A Wihl Human Heing.
Near the Goomtee river, in a district
where wolves abound and are never killed
by the natives from fear of the ill luck
which their death will bring upon the vil
lage, a native trooper saw a large she wolf
leave her den followed by three whelps and
a little oov.
The boy seemed on the best possible
terms with the old dam and the three
whelps, and the mother wolf seemed to
guard all four with equal care. They all
went down to the river and drank, after
which they were chased by the trooper;
out incy escaped over rough ground into
the den. the boy running on all fours quite
as last as the young wolves. The man
then got assistance and dug the whole
party out; the wolves mid t lie boy bolted
together, and the boy was caught, fastened
to a rope and led to the village.
He could not speak, but growled and
snarled like a young wolf, and tried to bolt
in every bole and shelter that was passed.
After four days he was sent to an English
ollicer, Capt. Xieholetts. Though kindly
treated, he never learned to speak, ran
away from grown up people, flew at chit
dren and tried to bite them and ran to eat
his food on all fours. But he was friendlv
with a pariah dog, and would let it share
his food. He would suck up a whole
pitcher of buttermilk without drawing
breath apparently. He never laughed or
smiled, and destroyed all clothes given
