however, and send their children to

ONLY A TRAMP.
But There Had Hern m Warm and For
giving I.ova for Him.
"It's only one of them pesky tramps.
Bill," said a brakeman to his com
panion, as the lights from two lan
terns fell on the form of a man man
pled as only a railroad train can man
fie. "I suppose we will have to get
him into the caboose and leave him at
Yes, he was only a tramp. The
brakeman addressed as Bill had seen
the man fall between two cars while
stepping; from one to another. The
train had been stopped and the two
railroaders went back to see what
damage had been done. In the caboose
they made a search of the dea 1 man's
clothes. They didn't rind much; no
money, not even a knifei In the in
side pocket of the rajrgred vest was a
greasy-looking envelope. In taking
out the letter a tiny band of gold fell
to the tloor. Whde one picked np the
ring the other re-i.i the letter. It had
been well fingered, and there were
unmistakably s-;o-.s that only tears
could have caused. The handwriting
was a woman's and read as follows:
"Dkai! Jim: Mary is dead, and in
her last words she inquire.! for papa.
She missed you so much, and never
seemed to bo well after you went. I
am sorry, Jim. for w hat I said that
night, iyid if you will comeback I will
never complain and worry you any
more. I send you Mary's ring; you
remember w hn you g it it for her.
lMease come back to your wife."
That was all. The wife had heard
in some way where her husband was
and had sent hi n the letter. It oc
curred to one of the brakemen to look
at the postmark; and with difficulty it
was seen that it was a month old and
that it was that of the very place
at which they had decided to leave the
Jim must have met w'th misfortune,
and was stealing his way home, which
he reached only to be carried out and
laid beside little Marc.
A Flrtloo or History.
It is astonishing how many people
believe the old story that Napoleon
Donaparte put a check for 100,000
francs in a silver five-franc piece and
that the coin is yet in circulation in
France. They say that the people did
not want the five-franc piece, and that
in order to create a demand for silver
money of that denomination, the em
peror resorted to the device men
tioned. The check, or treasury order,
was written on asbestos paper and
made in the coin. It would be inter
esting to know, if all this be true,
how many five-franc pieces have been
broken open since the atory of the
check was first circulated.
5!:si!;.oel .-Little Itreeches."
Bret llarte is so frequently compli
mented as the author of "Little
lireeches" that he is almost as sorry it
was ever written as is Colonel John
Hay, who woald prefer his fame to
rest on more ambitious work. A gush
ing lady, who prided herself upon her
literary tastes, said to him once: "My
dear Mr. liarte, lam so delighted to
meet you. I have read everything you
ever wrote; but, of all your dialect
verse, there is none that compares to
your "Little Breeches.'" quite
agree with you, madam," said Mr.
llarte; "but you have put the little
breeches on the wrong man. The
honor belongs to my friend Hay.

Very few people know that neither
a turtle, a tortoise, nor a toad is pro
vided with teeth There is a general
superstition that a turtle can bite off
a man's finger, but the turtle caa do
nothing of the kind. Its jaws are
very strong, and the horny membrane
that runs round the jaw, where, in
other animals teeth are found, is so
hard and tough that the turtle can
crush the bones of the hand to pulp,
tut as for biting off even a finger, the
feat is, to the turtle, an impossibility.
