'Well, sir. 1 was 1 .-king out of the

but I think they all turned double back
sur.;mersaults and struck on their ears.
Anyway Fa did, and the gun must have
iM-ert cocked or it struck the hammer on
a stone, for it went off, and it was point-
tow.trd the house, and three of the
visitors got salted. The minister was
hit the worst, one piece cf salt taking
hi in in the hind leg and the other in the
bat k. and he yelled as though it was dy
uai lite. I suppose when you shoot it
ma l with salt it smarts like when you
get corned beef brine on your chapiied

to have been knocked silly some way,

way ours has. it hurts them to break off
too suddenlv. 13ut the visitors went
home real quick after we pot Pa out of
the cistern, ami the minister lold Ma he
always felt viie-n he was in our hov.se as
though he was mi ihe verpe of a yawn
ing crater, ivady to be engulfed auv
minute, and he sruessod he wouldn't
come any nit re. Pa changed his clothes
and told Ma to have them wire clothes
lines changed for roe ones. I think it
is hard to suit Pa, don't von':"
"Oh, your Pa is all right. What he
needs is resr. P.ntwliy are you not
working at the liverv stable? Vou haven't
been discharged, have you':"' and the
grocery man laid a little lump of con
centrated lye that looked like maple
sugar on a cake ot sugar that had been
broken, knowing the buy would nibble it.
'No, sir, I was not discharged, but
when a livery man lends me a kicking
horse to take my girl out riding that
settles it. 1 asked the boss if 1 couldn't
have a qtiet horse that would drive him
self if I wound the lines around the
whip, and he let me have one he said
would go all day without driving. You
know how it is when a fellow takes a
girl out ridiii'? he don't want his mind
occupied holding lines.
"Well. I got my girl in, and we went
out on the Wliitetish bay road, and it
was just before dark, and we rode aloir ;
under the tii es, and I wound the lines
around the whip and put one arm around
my gnl and patted her under the chi:i
with my other hand, and her mor..i
looked so good and l.t r bine eyes looki d
up at me and twinkled as much as to
dar- iii to kiss her, and I was all of a
trembie. and the!) uiv hand wandered
around by her ear, and I drew her lieafl
tip to me and give hi r a smack. Say,
that was no kind of a horse to give to a
young fellow to take a girl out riding.
Just as I smacked her I 1.-".; its though
the buggy had been struck with a pile
driver, and when Hooked at the horse
he was rui'Siiiig away and kicking the
buggy and li;u-s wer-- dragging on
the ground. I v. . is s.-ar.-d. I tell yon. 1
wanted to jump out. but my girl threw

livery man ought to take it for granted
that when a young fellow goes out with
a girl he is going to I.tss la r and give
him a horse according. Put 1 quit him

The grocery man got hini some water
and seemed sorry that the boy had taken
the lump of ci nc -titrated lye by mistake,
and when the boy went out the grocerv
man pounded his hands on his knots and
laughed, and presently lie went out in

Corsets fU ( hristiHiiity.
Whether women should or should not
wv:ir corsets, they wear Uiem all the
p;ir.ie. and the harm done by voluntary
tight lacing is balanced by the recent
noble deed of Dr. Warner, corset manu
facturer, of Bridgeport. Conn. Next to
articles of luxury, the last things on earth
to be purchased in these hard times are
corsets. A pair of corsets may justly be
wiid to have great staying qualities.
Panics may come and panics may go,
but well made corsets will go cm forever.
Katuratly, therefore. Dr. Warner feels
the financial stringency keenly, and not
only is he obliged to reduce timetothree
days in the week. t t;t is forced to "lay
off" many women employees.

INDIANS AS SLAVES.
Ileniaril V. M viner's Illstiirieal Pa
per About CinmeeTient.
Dr. Bernard C. Steiner. lilu-arian of
the Knoch l'ratt l-'iee library, in ltal
viinor. has eotnji.eted a monograph on
'Slavery in Connecticut," which will
be published iu the John Hopkins
university studies in historical and
Among the interesting facts in the
work is the statement that fhe first
f-laves in Connecticut wore not ne
groes, but Indians, being of the Be
quot tribe, which was overthrown by
thc settlers in lrtSS. The first law
against the slave trade, too, was
passed in 1T1." against the importation
of the Tuscarora Indians, who had
been captured by the Carolinians in
war. The first idea of slavery in Con
necticut was then that captives in war
were slaves. Soon after the founda
tion of the colony negroes were intro
duced, a few at a time, chiefly from
the West Indies and not from Africa.
They were owned for the most part
as household servants, and the Con
necticut notion of slavery was the
patriarchal one, that slaves belonging
to the family of the master differed
from apprentices only in being bound
to service for life. """"v
Slavery was tolerated everywhere in
Connecticut throughout the colonial
period, but with the coming of the
revolution came the idea that it was
unrighteous to hold men in bondage.
This feeling led to the act of 177-1, pro
hibiting the foreign slave trade, anfl
hat of 1TM, providing that ail there
after born as slaves should be free on
reaching their twenty-fifth year.
This age was afterward lessened to
21. Connecticut is remarkable as be
ing a state which suc-eeited in gradual
emancipation. When slavery was fin
ally ab.disiu'ii there, in IS!, fewer
than twenty s'aves were in the state,
none of u hom were under 04 years of
1 lie llncmy of Mole.
The mole I'liig t-- ia the south' u
counties cT s. ot.an 1. which for a time
proved a terrible s ourge to farmers,
has now all but disappeared. This is
due to 1 he fa , t 'ii.il o.vls were pre
serveit iiv the gamekeepers and be
came extraordinarily pieutiful.
