the goat, and M 1 was at the bottom of
the stairs listening, and when I looked
over the banisters Pa and Ma and the
goat were all in a heap, and Pa was yell

hands on herself, and the goat rared up
and blatted. and Pa and Ma went into

my chum and me opened the front door
and drove the goat out.
"The minister, who comes to see M;i
every three tines a week, was just ring

wanted to be nishiated, too, and gave
him one for luck and then went down
the sidewalk blatting and sneezing, and
the minister c ime in the parlor and said
he was staldx d, and then Ta came out
of his room w.th his suspenders hanging
down, and he didn't know the minister
was there, nn 1 he said cuss words, and
Ma cried and told Pa he would go to lu ll

kill that knssxl goat afore he went, and
I told Ta the minister was in the parlor,

weather was propitious for a revival, and
it seemed as t lough an outpouring of the

As the bey went away and skipped
over the back fence the grocery man said
to hi brother Odd Fellow: "If that boy
doesn't beat the devil, then I never saw
one that did. The old man ought to
have him set t to a lunatic asylum."
HIS GI 3I GOES BACK ON HIM.
"Now you git right away from here,"
said the grot ery man to the bad boy as
he came in jrith a hungry look on his
face and a wild light in his eye. "I am
afraid of you. I wouldn't be surprised
to see you go off half cocked and blow
us all up. I think you are a devil. You
may have a billygoat, or a shotgun, or
a bottle of p jison concealed about you.
Condemn yt n, the police ought to muz
ele you. You will kill somebody yet.
Here, take a handful of prunes and go off
somewhere and enjoy yourself and keep
away from here," and the grocery man
went on sorting potatoes and watching
the haggard face of the boy. "What
ails you anyway?" he added as the boy
refused the prunes and seemed to be
Bick at the ftomach.
- . ....
"I'ou ace before you a shadow.
"Oh, I at a a wreck," said the boy as he
grated his teeth and looked wicked.
"You see I ef ore you a shadow. I have
drank of the sweets of life, and now
only the di egs remain. I look bacjc at

tne nappuiess or we past- mu wwne,
during wh ch I have been permitted to
gaze into the toiut Dine eyes ot my loved
one and carry her rr.bbeft to school for
her to wear home when it. rained, to
hear the sweet words that fell from her
lips as she lovingly told me I was a ter
ror, and as I think it is all over and that
I shall never again place my arm around
her waist I feel as if the world had been
kicked off its base and was whirling
through space, liable to be knocked into
a cocked hat, and I don't care a darn.
My girl has shook me."
"Sho? You don't say so," said the
grocery man as he threw a rotten potato
into a basket of good ones that were go
ing to the orphan asylum. "Well, she
showed sense. You would have blown
her up, or broken her neck, or some
thing. But don't feel bad. You will
soon find another girl that will discount
her, and you will forget this one."
"Xever!" said the boy as he nibbled
at a piece of codfish that he had picked
off. "1 shall never allow my affections
to become entwined about another piece
of calico. It unmans me, sir. Hence
forth I am a hater of the whole girl race.
From this out I shall harbor revenge in
my heart, and no girl can cross my path
and live. I want to grow up to become
a he schoolma'm. or a he milliner, or
something, where I can grind girls into
the dust under the heel of a terrible des
potism and make them sue for mercy.
"To think that girl, on whom I have
lavished my heart's best love and over
30 cents in the past two weeks, could let
the smell of a goat on my clothes come
between us and break off an acquaint
ance that seemed to be the forerunner
of a happy future and say 'Ta-ta' to
me and go off to dancing school with a
telegraph messenger loy who wears a
sleeping car porter uniform is too much,
and my heart is broken. I will lay for
that messenger some night when he is
delivering a message in our ward, and 1
will make him think lightning has struck
the wire and run in on his bench. Oh,
you don't know anything about the woe
there is in this world. You never loved
many people, did yon?"
The grocery man admitted ho never
loved very hard, but he knew a little
something about it from an aunt of his
who got mashed on a Chicago drum
mer. "But your father must In- having
a rest while your whole mind is occupied
with your love affair," said he.
"I'es," said the ooy, with a vacant
look, "I take no interest in the pleasure
of the chase any more, though I did have
a little quiet fun this morning at the
breakfast table. You see, Pa is the con
trariest man ever was. If I complain
that anything at the table don't taste
good. I 'a says it is all right. This morn
ing I took the sirup pitcher and emptied
out the white sirup ami put in some cod
liver oil that Ma is taking for her cough.
I put some on my pancakes and pretend
ed to taste of it, and I told Pa the sirup
was sour and not fit to eat. Pa was mad
in a second, and he poured out some on
his pancakes and said I was getting too
confounded particular. He said the sirup
was good enough for him, and he sopped
his pancakes in it and fired some down
his neck. He is a gaul durned hypocrite,
that's what he is. I could s,'e by his face
that the cod liver oil was nearly killing
him, but he said that sirup was all right,
and if I didn't eat mine he would break
my back, and, by gosh, I had to eat it,
and Pa said he guessed be hadn't got
much appetite, and he would just drink
a cup of coffee and eat a donut.
"1 like to died, and that is one thing,
I think, that makes this disappointment
in love harder to In-ar. But I felt sorry
for Ma. Ma ain't got a very strong
stutnmick, and when she got some of
that cod liver oil in her mouth she went
right up stairs sicker 'n a horse, and Pa
had to help her, and she had nooralgia
all the morning. I eat pickles to take
the taste out of my mouth, and then I laid
for the hired girls. They eat too much
sirup anyway, and when they got on to
that cod liver oil and swallowed a lot of
it one of them, a Nirish girl, she got up
from the table and put her hand on her
corset and said 'Howly Jaysus!' and
went out in the kitchen as pale as Ma is
when she has powder on her face, and
the other girl, who is Dutch, she Bwal
lowed a pancake and said, 'Mine Gott,
vas de matter from me? and she went
out and leaned on the coalbin; then they
talked Irish and Dutch and got clubs
and started to look for me, and I thought
I would comi over here.
"The whoh family is 6ick, but it is not
from love, like my illness, and they will
get over it, while I shall fill an early
grave, but not till I have made that girl
and the telegraph messenger wish they
were dead. Pa and I are going to Chi
cago next week, and I'll bet we'll have
some fun. l'a says I need a change of
air, and I th ak he is going to try and
loso me. ItV a cold day when I get left
anywhere that I can't find my way
back. Well, goodby, old rotten potatoes."

The Art r leave Taking.
The art of goim; away g-:icefully is one
of the most difdcnlt of social observances.
Women err in lingering too long after
the start is made; men in bolting too
suddenly, making sometimes the exit al
most a blow in the face. There is a
golden mean cf leave taking, whose aro

pelled, and happy is he or she who finds

MR. JosF.ril I!. WE1NEU.
"I suffered from catarrh for four
years before I went to Drs.Stackhouse
and Daniel," said Mr. Weiner. "The
past two years my case was so bad
that I could hardly believe a cure
possible. Headaches, dizziness, de
spondency, insomnia, throat troubles,
coughing and numerous other symp
toms kept me in dreadful m'iserv
nearlv all the time. Under the
treatment of Drs. Stackhouse and
Daniel, these have all disappeared.
From the very iirst the treatment
did me good. Why, I now feel like
another man. I want to recommend
the treatment of Drs. Stackhouse and
Daniel to everyone who is troubled
as I was. I am sure that they can
cure others as easily as they did me."
