blank cartridges and we went down in

to open the wiiu.ow my chum began to
fire toward T.i. Pa, hollered that it was
only him and not a burglar, but after
my chum fired t our shots Pa run and
climbed over the fence, and then we took
tho dev; home, and I staid with my
chnm all night, and this morning Ma
said Pa didn't ge: home till 4 o'clock, and
then a policeman came with him, and Pa
talked about ui; d dogs and being taken
for a burglar and nearly killed, and sho
said she was afr; id Pa had took to drink
ing again, and sl.o asked mo if I heard
any firing of guns, and I said no, and
then she put a wet towel on Ta's head."
"Yon ought to bo ashamed," said tho
grocery man. " How does your Pa liko
your living in loe with the girl? Does
he seem to encourage you in it?"
"Oh, yes, she was up to onr houso to
lorry some tea, and Ta patted her on
the check and hugged her and said she
was a dear little daisy and wanted her
to sit in his lap, but when I wanted him
to let me have TO cents to buy her some
icecream he said that was all nonsense.
He said: 'Look it your Ma. Eating ice
cream when she was a girl was what in
jured her health for life." I aked Ma
about it, and she said Pa never laid out
10 cents for ice i ream or any luxury for
her in all the five years he was sparking
her. She sys he took her to a circus
once, but he got free tickets for carrying
water for the elephant. Sho says Ta
was tighter than the bark to a tree. I
tell yon it's going to be different with
me. If there is anything that girl wants
she is going to have it if I have to sell
Ma's copper Ix-ilor to get the money.
What is the use of having wealth if you
hoard it up and don't enjoy it? This
family will lie run on different princi

are those yelli-w wooden pocket combs
in the showc.Ls. ? I've a good notion to
buy them for :ier. How would one of
them round mirrors with a zinc cover do

HIS Pa ooks huntinc.
"What has jour Pa got his jaw tied
up for, and what makes his right eye so
black and bine." asked the grocery man
of the bad boy as the loy came to bring
some butter back that was strong enough
to work on the street. "You haven't
hurt your poor old Pa. have you?"
"Oh, his jav is all right now. You
ought to have seen him when the gnu
was engaged in kicking him," says tho
boy as he set the butter plate on tho
"Well, tell r s aW.ut it. What had the
gnu against yi ur Pa? I guess it was the
sou of a gun t hat kicked him," said tho
grocery man a-; ho winked at a servant
girl who cam ; in with her apron over
her head after 2 cents' worth of yeast.
I'll tell you if you will keep watch
down street for Ta. He says ho is
dammed if l.e will stand this foolishness
"What, does your father swear wbiio
lie is on proba ion?"
"Swear! Well. I should cackle. Ymi
i.ught to have heard him when he come
to and spit out the loose teeth. You
see, since Pa quit drinking he is a little
nervous, and the doctor said he ought to
go out somewhere and get bizness off his
mind, and hunt ducks, and row a boat,
and got strength, and Pa said shooting
ducks was jusc in his hand, and for mo
to go and borrow a gun, and I could go
along and carry game. So I got a gun at
the gun store and some cartridges, and
we went awt y out west on the cars,
more than 50 miles, and staid two days.
You ought to seen Pa. He was just liko
a boy that wa i sick and couldn't go to
school. When we got out by the lake, ho
jumped up and cracked his heels together
and yelled. I thought he was crazy, but
he was only c inning.
"First I scared him nearly to death by
firing off the frun behind him as we wero
going along the bank and blowing off a
piece of his c jattail. I know it wouldn't
hurt him, but he turned pale and told
me to lay dov,-n that gun, and ho picked
it up and carried it the rest of the way,
and I was offt 1 glad 'cause it was a heavy
gun. ' His c ittail smelled like when
yon burn a rag to mako the air in tho
room stop smelling so all the forenoon.
You know Pii is a little near sighted, but
he don't believo it, so I got some of the
wooden decoy ducks that tho hunters
use and put them in tho lake, and yon
ought to see Pa get down on his belly
and crawl tl rough the grass to get up
close to them. He shot 20 times at the
wooden duck i and wanted me to go in
and fetch th m out, but I told him I was
no retriever dog.
"Then Pa was mad and said all he
brought me i long for was to carry game,
and I had ci me near shooting his hind
leg off, and now I wouldn't carry ducks.
While ho was coaxing me to go in the
cold water without my pants on I heard
some wild .eese squawking, and then
Pa heard them, and he was excited. He
eaid, 'You lay down behind tho muskrat
houso, and I will get a goose.' I told hiru
ho couldn't liill a cooso with that fine
ehot, and I gave him a large cartridge
tho gun storo man loaded for me with
a handful of powder in, and I told Pa it
was a goose cartridge, and Pa put it in
the gun. Ti e geese came along, about a
mile high, Bcnawking, and Pa aimed at
a dark cloud and fired. Well, I was
off ul scared. I thought I had killed him.
The gun jus- rared up and come down
on his jaw. shoulder and evervwhere.
ana he went ever a log and struck on !
las shoulder. The gun flew out of his
nanus, ana l'a ho laid there on his neck
with his feet over tho log, and that was
the first time he didn't scold me since he
got velidgin. I felt offul sorry and got
some dirty water in my hat and roured
it down his neck and laid him nut im.1
pretty soon he opened his eyes and asked
ii any or me passengers gotaMiore alive.
"Then his eye swelled ont so it looked
like a bine doorknob, and Pa felt of his
jaw and asked if the eiiLrineer ami fire
man jumped off or if tin y went down
w nn ine engine, lie seemed dazed, and
then he saw the gun. and he said take
"ic ii cut over a log."
the dam thing away, It is going to Kick
me again. Then he got his senses and
wanted to know if he killed a goose, and
I told him no. but he nearly broke one's
jaw, and then he said tho gun kicked
him when it went off. and he laid down,
and the gun k. p.t kicking him more than
20 times when he was trying to sleep.
He wont back to the tavern where we
were stopping and wouldn't touch the
gun, but made me lug it. He told the
tavern keeper that he fell over a wire
fence, but I think he began to suspect,
after he spit the loose teeth out, that tho
gun was loaded 'or bear. I suppose he
will kill nie some day. Don't you think
"Any coroner's jury would let him off
and call it justifiable if he should kill
you. You must bo a lunatic. Has jour
Pa talked much about it since you got
back?" asked the grocery man.
"Not much. You see ho can't talk
much without breaking his jaw. P it
he was able to throw a chair at me.
You siv, 1 thought I would joke him a lit
tle, 'cause when anvbodv feels bad a io!;o
; kind of livens "em up. so we were tall
ing about Pas liver, and Ma said he
seemed to be bitter since his liver had
become more active, ,and I said, 'Pa,
when you was a-rolling over with the
gun chasing you and kicking you every
round your liver was active enough,
'cause it was on top half the time.' Then
Pa throwed the chair at me. He says he
tielieves I knew that cartridge was load

Ilia Carriage Driven by Naphtha.
C. L. Simonds of Lj-nn has made a
steam carriage for his own use that will
make 10 miles an hour. Tho carriage
weighs only 400 pounds and can carry
two persona at a time. It has the ap
pearance of an ordinary carriago in
front, except there are no provisions
made for a horse. The wheels are of cy
cle make and are four in number. The
hind wheels are 4:5 inches, and the front
wheels are DG inches, with rubber tires.
Tho boiler and engine are just in the
rear of the seat and give the carriage the
appearance of a fiiv engine. The steam
generates in what is called a porcupine
boiler, which weighs l'.io pounds. Tho
steam is made by ni.; l.!h,i flames from
three j- Is. The iii.piitiia is kept in a cyl
inder, enough to last for seven hours,
and there is a water tank that will hold
10 gallons. The steering part consists
of a cnuik wheel on the footboard, so
that the engineer can steer and attend to
tho engine at the same time. Uoston

at the close of the meeting when their
leader, Dr. Simpson, asked all in the
audience who ha J been healed by divine

of a spinal trouble of long standing; Mrs.
M. J. Ames of Portland neuralgia of the

without suffering any pain. Mrs. F. C.

paralysis of the optic nerve, which nearly
robbed her of her eyesight, was led to

that a few years ago she fell in a church
door and broke her wrist. Neither medi
cine nor bandage was applied, but the
Lord united the broken bones. Another
New York lady 6aid she was thrown
from a carriage not long ago, and her
right ankle was dislocated. The Lord
set the dislocated bone. The Rev. A. S.

seven years he had employed no physi

child had been cured of the croup and
another of pneumonia without the use of
medicine. An infant had died, but Mr.

Dr. Q. C. Oboood,
Castoria is the best remedy for children of

far distant when mother will consider the real
interest of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of the various quack nostrums which are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sending
ttiem to premature graves."
