Whene'er she smiles a greetin.
She nin't no fairy, sprite nor elf,

She's jes' her own dear littlo self,

A halo rests above her.
There ain't a one of us 'd daro

A PRISONER'S RUSE.
HOW ROC ESCAPED FROM THE SPAN
ISH PRISON BY A TRICK.
A Clever rirate Who Won Freedom For
Himself am! His Companions Ly Forging
a Letter aud Playing on Ills Captor's
Mr. Frank It. Stockton, telling St.
Nicholas readers about "Tho Buccaneers
of Our Coast," describes the clover es
cape of Rcc, tho Brazilian, a famous
pirate, from captivity among tho Span
ish at Cauipeaehy. Mr. Stockton says:
When he was coming into the bay,
Roc had noticed a largo French vessel
that was lying at some distauco from
tho town, aud ho wrote his letter as if
it had enmo from tho captain of this
ship. In the character of this French
captain bo addressed his letter to tho
governor of tho town, and iu it he stated
that he had understood that certain
companions of tho coast, for whom ho
had great sympathy for tho French
and tho buccaneers were always good
friends had been captured by tho gov
ernor, who, he heard, had threatened to
Tho French captain, by tho hand of
Roc, went on to say that if harm should
como to these bravo men, who had been
taken and imprisoned when they wero
doing uo harm to anybody, he would
swear, in his most solemn manner, that
never for the rest of his life would ho
give quarter to any Spaniard who might
fall into his hands, and ho moreover
threatened that any kind of vengeance
which should become possible for the
buccaneers aud French united to inflict
upon the Spanish ships, or upon tho
town of Campeachy, should be taken as
soon as possible after he should hear of
any injury that might bo inflicted upon
tho unfortunate men who wero then
lying imprisoned in the fortress.
When tho slave camo back to Koc,
tho letter was given to him with very
particular directions as to what ho was
to do with it. He was to disguise him
self as much as possible, so that he
should not bo recognized by the people
of tho place, and then in the night he
was to make his way cut of tho town,
and early in the morning was to return
as if he had been walking along the
shore of the harbor, when ho was to
state that he had been put on shore from
the French vessel iu the offing with a
letter which ho was ordered to present
to the governor.
The slavt performed his part of the
business very well. The next day, wet
and bedraggled from making bis way
through the weeds and mud of the
coast, ho presented himself at tho for
tress with his letter, and when ho was
allowed to lake it to the governor no
ouo suspected that he was a person em
ployed about the place. Having fulfilled
his mission, ho departed, and when seen
again be was the samo servant whoso
business it was to carry food to tho pris
oners. Tho governor read tho letter with a
disquieted mind. Ho knew that the
French ship which was lying outside
tho harbor was a powerful vessel, and
ho did not liko French ships anyway.
Tho town had once been taken and very
badly treated by a little fleet of French
and Englith buccaneers, and he was
very auxious that nothing of the kind
should happen again.
Thero was no effective Spanish force
in tho harbor ut that time, and ho did
not know how many buccaneering ves
sels might bo ablo to gather together iu
the bay if it should becomo known that
tho great pirate Koo had been put to
death in Campeachy.
It was unusual for a prisoner to have
powerful friends to near by, and tho
governor took Uoc's case into most ear
nest consideration. A few hours' reflec
tion was sufficient to convince him that
it would bo very unsafe to tako risks
with such a dangerous prizo as the pi
rate Roe, and ho determined to get rid
of him as soon as possiblo. He felt him
self in tho position of a man who has
stolen a baby bear aud who hears
through tho woods the roar of an ap
proaching parent. To throw away tho
cub and walk off as though he had no
idea thero were any bears in that forest
would be the inclination of a man so
situated, aud to get rid of a great pirate
without provoking tho vengeance of his
friends waH tho natural inclination of
Now, Roc and his men wero treated
well and, having been brought before
tho governor, wero told that in conse
quenco of their having committed no
overt act of disorder they would be set
at liberty and shipped to Spain upon
tho single condition that they would
abandon piracy aud agree to become
To these terms Roo and his men
agreed without arguiuout. They de
clared they would retire from tlio buc
caneering business aud that nothing
would suit them better than to return
to tho ways of civilization aud virtuo.
There was a ship about to depart for
Spain, and on this tho governor gave
Roo and his men free passage to the
other sido of the ocean. There is no
doubt that our buccaneers would have
much preferred to have been put on
board tho l ieuch vessel, but Koc mado
no suggestion of the kind, kiiov.'ing how
astonished iho French captain would be
if tho governor wero to co!g:iuuicate
with him on the subject.

Thackeray's words were satirical, and
ho himself was called a cyuio, but the
author of "Lovo Affairs of Somo Fa

beat in tho satirist's breast by quoting
from tho letter of ono to whom tho fol
lowing incident happened:
"In tho week following his death
there appeared some genial memorial
lines iu tho pages of Punch. Walking
down tho then unsavory thoroughfare
known as Bedfordbury, my eye caught
tho open pago of the popular periodical,
aud I staid to read the graceful tribute
to tho dead moralist. Turning away at
length, a poorly dressed man in work
ing garb said to mo:
" 'I knew that man, sir.'
" 'You knew Thackeray?' I asked.
" 'Yes, sir. I keep that littlo baker's
shop yonder,' pointing to the opposite
side of the street, 'and many's tho
time Thackeray would come and buy i
pound or two of cake of me. I cut it
into slices for him, aud then, distribut
ing it among a crowd of- hungry chil
dren, ho would walk away aud hide in
thut court over there, that ho might
have the pleasure of sooing their enjoy
ment. Ho didn't know I know him, but
I did. People used to call him n cynic,
sir, but it wasn't true. lie loved tho

THE TRICK WORKED BY CRIMINALS
IN AN OHIO PRISON.
Convlets Who Trained' Kats to Give Warn

They Sawed Their Cell Unrs A Sheriff
Itewarded For Vlgllnuce.
A story told by W. U. Ryan, an old
Ohio sheriff, illustrates tho ingenuity
i f criminals. Ryan was sheriff of Cuya
hoga county for several years aud re
fused a third or fourth nomination for
tho office for the reason that the county
jail in Cleveland was so old and dilapi
dated that tho watching of the 70 or HO
prisoner was mora of a job than ho
cared to keep. While he was still in
charge a notorious criminal named Fos
ter and au accomplice were convicted
and sentenced to a long term of im
prisonmint in tho Ohio penitentiary.
At that tiino tho jail was crowded, and
Sheriff Ryan was conipelh d to place
both convicted men in tho same cell.
Tho sheriff lived iu the county build
ing, and on the night following the con
viction of Foster he went to bed soon
alter supper, intending to get up early
tho next morning and take tho two
prisoners to the penitentiary. About
midnight he awol-e with a start. Ho
was trer.bl.ng violently and was con
vinced that trouble was brew in;; in tho

"Haven't yon beard the noise of

"Nope, ri:d tLiy ."in't Ikoii working,

Ryan was suspicious and listened at
tentively at the jail de-.rr. Tin-re was no

of the prisoners. '
