is reported that Dick's fur is some
what ruffled, owing to an article
written by Ebene0 which upset
Dick's solicitous state, and caused
him to break a suspender. The
article in question seriously re
flected on Dick's staying qualities
when under fire, and also took him
to, task for failing to respond to

was given by liring lead pills at him,

"Aliout as uncomfortable an experience
ns I ever had," said a retired burglar, "I
had in a small town in tlio interior of this
state. I had iione into a house very late so
as not to disturb the people, but just us I
turned into one of the rooms the light was
turned on suddenly, ami an instant later I
was pinned to the door by a knife through
my coat sleeve. liy this time my eyes had
pot accustomed to the light , ami I could see
n man sitting up ill bed. lie had a row of
knives sticking in the houlloard of the bed
over his head and another knive in his hand.
"It seems that tins man was a profes
sional knife thrower, who made his home
in this town, and who always came there
when he wasn't on the road. I had hap
poned to find him at home, and here I was
within live minutes after entering the
house standing o.p against a door while he
threw knives at me. It. was a most unex
pected and a most uncomfortable experi
ence, and besides not getting anything I
was actually out the cost of a suit of
clothes, for the ones I had on were never
fit to wear afterward." Now York Sun.
