AN END OF THE CENTURY THIEF, j EVENING, MIDNIGHT, MORNING,
Dim grow, the wood: the amber evening- tints
Menre into opal skies and stars Inst seen:
Down vistas gloomed and winding there are
Of elves and gnomes along the mosses green.
A holy sons the thrush has distant sang;
The tree tops murmur like some dreaming
Hark ! Far away a silvern bell has rang
Twelve strokes, slow tolled, tlmt faint and

As fleeting and as sby as any fawn;
Sweet odors. stirring winds and forms of grace;

"An old fellow played the Friar when I

I an actor. "The flat stuck in the scene in
I the Friar's cell, and the stage hands
j couldn't get it joined for some seconds.
t Then the ruffians in the gallery began to
j howl. One or two of them hissed. The
! Friar went to the footlights and roared at
j them: 'Stop your bloody noise up there.
I Haven't you ever seen a scene stuck be
fore? You're a blooming lot of chumps,
t that's what you are. There isn't a decent
man among you. l ou ve seen worse act

you hiss that, blame yon?'
"Well, the old fellow went on in the
most awful way, nsing swear words at a
prodigious rate. Then he noticed that the
scene was in place, and he turned up the
stage and called out, "Romeo, come forth.'
The change from that man ripping out
oaths a monk, too to the Friar of the
piece was nearly enough to set me off, and
I could hardly get through the scene."

An Kxciting Hunt.
One of the most exciting hunts lever
enjoyed was a bear hunt gotten up by
William Lowndes on the Ashepoo river.
We killed several bears, running them
with our deer dogs and fox dogs until t hey
were treed or came to bay. I have seen
many a brave dog killed or disabled by
bears. At that time fire hunting used to
be practiced to a considerable extent, and
many deer were killed in that way, to say
nothing of live stock and cattle. I am
very glad to say that thispractice is now
prohibited by law. I retail an amusing
incident that happened to two of a plant
er's sons one night. The lioys were hunt
ing, the elder carrying t'.ie gun and the
younger the pan of fire.
Presently they beheld tie eyes of a deer
about twenty yards away; gazing in fasci
nation at the light. "Tlere he is," said
the younger; "shoot him.' Tom!" Tom im
mediately sighted between the staring eyes
and shot. The boys heavd a fall and scuf
fling among t lie leaves, and then the ani
mal lay still. "We've killed him!" cried
the small one gleefully. "We nothing!"
said the elder. "I killed him, Frank."
L pon investigation it was found to be a
favorite thoroughbred colt of their father's.
"Whew!" said Tom; "we've killed Meteor,
Frank." "We, the deuce!" said Frank.

It Wus Not Sorrow.
She walked timidly into the coroner's
office, leading by the 1 ami a little boy.
"Where !o you ke; the pictures of the
dead men?" she inquired in broken Etift
lish of the man 1: -hind the wicket. "I
want to look for r.iy husband."
A bulky package of photographs of the
"unknown" was handed to her.
She sat down on a chair aud commenced
her sail task. She scanned each grewsome
picture carefully, endcuvoring to find the
well known face. The happy youngster
picked up each portrait with a cry of
"That's him!" and succeeded in discovering
at least twenty "hims" before his mother
had finished the package.
One of those sympathetic souls entered
and spied the sorrowing widow. After a
few questions he assisted her in her search,
saying, "You must feel very deeply the loss
of your husband."
