A writer in tho Conihlll tells of n
Bcoiio that Charles AuhUu witnessed
when tho VersulHals entered Paris. lie
saw one day roaming nbont Paris n
not uncommon sight a group of men
and women put against a wall to bo
shot. Tholr hands wero supposed to
be blnckened with powder.
Among them was a lad of twclvo or
fourteen, who, before tho order to shoot
could bo given, stepped forward and
begged to bo allowed to take back the
watch his mother had lent him. lie
produced a huge turnip of a watch and
promised faithfully to return.
Mr. Austin said it was a moment of
anguish. None could bo sure that the
child was telling tho truth, but the ofll
cor commanding, giving him a kick,
said, "Do off with you!" Tho child ran
away, tho order to shoot rang out, but
tho horrid business was hardly over
before tho clatter of feet wan heard, and
tho boy reappeared round a corner and,
putting himself against tho woll, pre
pared for death.
It was Impossible to kill that heroic
"It renews one's faith In humon na
turo," bald Mr. Austin.

A Python, Some Goat and n Mcnl
That Wan IlcllMhed.
"During several years spent In cen
tral Africa we were for tho greater
part of the time dependent on goats
for our fresh milk supply," writes a
traveler. "Tho gout kraal was made
very Btrong, proof against Hons, leop
arda and other oarnivora, but a python
entered between the poles, though they
wero spaced three Inchon apart, one
night, killed all tho goats in the com
partment by strangling them, swal
lowed two and was found gorged,
sluggish and self trapped within the
kraal In tho morning. Tho swellings
of his body where tho two goats wero
prevented him from escaping between
tho palings, as he laid come In. To
look at the snake's small head and
Blender neck It seemed Impossible for
him to swallow anything larger than a
rut, but by dislocating his Jaw and
stretching his skin he accomplished
tho apparently imposslblo feat of gas-
trononiy. Tho goats wero cut out of
hltn Intact by our boys, who evidently
considered that prematura burial In
tho python did not affect tho ediblo
qualities of tho meat, as within half
an hour It was all roasted and eaten
with considerable relish."
