A GIRL'S FIRST SHOT.
Her Painful and Mortifying; Eipcrlrass
with a Gun That "Kicked."
I shall not go back to the old days when
a wee tot of a girl I used to cry for my
father's gun, shut my eyes when I pulled
the trigger and then cry again when the
gun went off, because the noise frightened
me so; but I will tell of my first shot when
I took hold of a gun all alone, aimed at
something and shot nothing. 1 had gone
with my brother and two cousins to the
"new ground," where the boys said there
was some fine bird shooting. We had
ridden over on our (ionics, and after
we had dismounted and were climb
ing a fire rail fence my brother said,
"Lucy, you are a girl, and girls can't
hoot." I waited to hear no more. I just
slipped to the ground, mounted my pony,
gave him the bridle and in a short time
was back home again.
On going to the gunrack to my dismay
I found only a heavy, old fashioned shot
gun, which was always spoken of as the
"kicker." I did not long hesitate to take
the "kicker," for I was fully determined
to learn to shoot. What matter if I did
get a kick or two? Was that half as bad
as to be told, "You are a girl, and girls
don't shoot?" I could not load the gun
and I dare not ask any one about the house
to do it for me lest it should be taken away
and I forbidden to touch it again. I was
in despair when I bethought me of "Uncle
Sam," a superannuated negro who lived
ith his wife in one of the cabins which
belonged to the old negro quarters. This
old negro had been a slave of my father be
fore the war and was still a pensioner on
He was very fond of me and would do
anything for me. I took the "kicker," all
the powder and shot I could find, and made
a bee line for Uncle Sam's cabin. I found
him outside praying mot lustily, "Oh
Lord, chicken is mighty good, but po ole
Sam doan want no chicken: he jes' wants a
ham bone. Oh, Lord, please jes' sen ole
Sam a ham bone" with much stress on
the boue. Long since we had all learned
that when Uncle Sam was calling so lwud
ly on the Lord for a ham lxme he was do
ing so to drown the noise of chicken
sizzlinx in his frying pan; hence I did not
hesitate to interrupt his devotions by ask
ing him to load the "kicker"' for me.
lie obeyed my injunction to put in a big
load, but hesitated before he gave it to me,
Bavins. "Honey, what is you gwiue to
shoot?" I was stumped.
My thoughts had lieen so busy with the
pleasure 1 should experience at my broth
er's surprise when I had proved to him
that girls could shoot: that I had not
thought about what I was going to prac
tice on. I confided my ambition to Uncle
Sam and he said: "Down in t'.i-so woods jus'
back d:r is a ole fatnin pen whar is a hog
what is gwiiie to be killed in de mo'nin.
Now you jes' go down darand shoot dat ole
hog. den young rjiarster will hear all de
niggers a ia.'Tiri an a-taikin about how you
done shot de ole hog, and cf he doau take
all that he said back, den I ain't no nig
ger."' I made up my mind in a minute to
f.iiiow Uncle Sinn's advice. 1 grew happy
and confident. In less than no time I was
at the fatniu pen, where my career as a
sportswoman was to liegin. My idea was
to sit on the top rail of the ien and when
the beast looked up at me to shoot it in
the head, never for a moment doubting I
should kill hi 1 11.
I climbed up and seated myself on the top
rail facing the inside of the lien. The hog
looked up; I stilled my throbbing heart,
pulled the trigger and found myself lying
on the jjrouud outside of the pen, and that
pig still alive looking at me with as much
curiosity in his face as it was possible for
a pig to have. I picked myself up and
hurried home as fast jus I could. 1 met the
boys at the gate, but try as I would I could
not smile. My whole body ached and my
heart was sad. The boys were all smiles.
I knew they saw me with the "kicker," but
did not dream they had taken a short way
home and had seen me fall from the top
rail of the pen until my brother told me of
it as he bade good night. Cor. Forest and
A New Star in 1573.
Tycho Brahe's star of 1572 made its ap
pearance neat the star Kappa CassiopeifB,
the faintest of the four stars forming the
well known square in Cassiopeia's chair.
It appears to have Ix-en first noticed by
Cornelius Gemma, on Nov. 9 of that year,
and it seems to have blazed out very sud
denly, as he states that it was not risible
on the precedincr evening in a clear sky.
The attention of Tycho Hrahe, whose name
is generally associated with the star, seems
to have been first attracted to it on Xov.
11. When first seen it surpassed Jupiter
and rivaled Venus in brightness, and was
visible at noonday!
At this brilliancy, however, it did not
long remain, but gradually diminished in
luster, and in March, 1.YT4, had completely
disappeared, at least to the naked eye. Its
curious changes are thus described: "As it
decreased in size so it varied in color: at
first its light was white and extremely
bright; it then became yellowish, after
ward of a ruddy color, and finished with a
pale livid color." J. Ellard Gore in Popu
lar Science Monthly.
A Child Without a Name.
A certain married pair, each blessed with
a strength of will that some would call
obstinacy, found themselves the happy
parents about a year ago of a leautiful
baby boy. In due time a christening was
decided upon, but, alas, it was impossible
to agree upon the name. The motherwas
anxious to call the boy Percy, while the
father favored plain John. Neither would
yield tier permit a don hie name, and lifter a
spirited (licussion at t ne last moment with
no result, t lie (iet'g'ynian, who was an old
friend of the family, began the service.
When the place was reached where the
name should be repeated, instead, the min
ister went on, "Child of the covenant, I
baptize thee," etc. The bal3' is still name
less except to a wide circle of relatives,
who call hi;a "Covey." Her Point ii

T'uulty Hoarlnij Not Incurable.
It is a common fallacy to suppose that
any dullness of hearing is beyond the help
of the physician, and that, consequently,
nothing can le done for it. Slight dull
ness of hearing is often occasioned by a
catarrhal condition of the throat, which
dullness gets better or worse as the condi
tion of the membrane of the throat changes.
The great majority of cases of deafness, it
can be safely said, are not beyond improve
ment, or at least a checking of the degen
erative process. Youth's Companion.
