LAPSE FROM GRACE.
Wc readied tlio house, unit tumbling In
to bed slept tlio sleep of tlio righteous until
morning. An early breakfast of limn nml
e(.g, hot blbcuit, potatoes nnd hot coll'eo
beiiu; disposed of, wo struck out for Cold
Creek, hnlf a mllo from Undo 11111'h. Wo
wnntcd tho bob-sled nnd tlio mule, Yellow
.Inck, but Unclo 1)111 could not snare thorn,
liu snld. Wo reached tho timber, which
was low nnd bushy, Interspersed with
hnzel thickets nnd brush heaps. Hero wo
started in, nnd had hardly entered tho
edgo of tho brush when a flock of aunll
Inured up from under n fallen log. NIxy
got two birds with hla right-hand barrel
nnd n miss with his left, while I dropped
n hen bird with my first barrel, but re
served my second barrel.
As we stepped forward a. flno cock bird
jumped out nnd wheeled In n seinl-cirelo
over the thicket, but I was lendy for him
nnd killed him clean. Wo reloaded, and,
ns Xl.ty wns slinking tho snow from his
hi ids, u rabbit hopped out of a nest of
leaves nnd wits oil llko a streak. Nlxy
dropped tho qunil, brought Ills gun to his
shoulder ns quirk ns llghtnTiig bnng.
"How can you kill those downy littlo rab
bits, Kixy," I said. Wo tramped tho brush
faithfully until 2 it. in. Through briers
nnd over tho olcl stake-and'rider fences,
nlougahcdga or two, nnd over hill nml
hollow. Then wc started for home with
our hunting coats filled with jgaitio. Nlxy
hud got a snap-shot nt a prairie chicken,
nnd was lucky enough to bring him down,
and had Lcjldc eight rabbits and thirteen
I had live rabbin? nnd eleven qunll for
niv quota nnd it teriiblo nppctfto for n
pqiwre menl. When wo got to tho house
Uncle, Hill lcgalqd us with thrilling uc
couuts of the game he had seen on llrush
Creek, two nnd a hnlf miles from his
place. Wo begged for Yellow Jack and
the bob-sled for next day, but Undo Hill
vns obdurate. Henlbosnld lie hud seen
near home a ccrtnin sheep-killing dog
which ho wns dreadfully niixious to kill
In iomo way, and he described tho dog to
us, and said he would give $5 for liis
Wc promised to give that purp a mighty
wnrm reception if ho ever cunio near us.
After supper wns over Unole Hill got out
the family Hlblo to read a, chnptcr, as was
ins custom oi jatc. ine nuge stovo giowca
with the heat that sprang liom its oak and
hickory contents. The tin doors of the
cupboard sparkled cheerfully, and tho
lamp-light beamed on Uncle Hill's yellow
locks. Tho cotton window curtains were
drawn half aside, and tho snow lay llko a
great white mantle ns lar ns tho eye could
reach. Tho children woiogathcrea in their
little choirs near tho stove, and every one
listened in respectful silence. Uncle Hill
bcgnir) ending In a serious and meditative
manner, and finally leached the last verso
in the chapter, Clearing his throat, he
"JJccauso of the Chaldeans; for they
were nfinid of them, because Ishmucl,
the sou of Ncthnninh, had slain Ged.iliah,
the ton of Ahikam, who the king of Haby
lon nindo governor in tho land." Closing
tho Hlblo softly, his eyes wandered to tho
window. Then he said: "Tho fortv-llrat
chnptcr of Jeremiah ends thusly: 'Ily ,
there's that dog! " . Tho first part of this
r-cutenco wai uttered in a solemn tone, be
fitting the surroundings, but tho Inst part
of it leaped fiom his lips in an involun
tary cxclonintion of surprhe. The dog
hnd trotted around thecornerof the hotiso
and loomed un in bas-relief on tho snow
tjust as Uncle Hill got to "thusly." The
iidden nppnrition was too much for him,
nnd ho foigot everything except his in
tense desire to make an end of tlint miser
able sheep-killing cur.
lie rushed to tho gun-rack, snatched his
heavy double-barreled duck-gun, opened
tlio back door, and sneaked around the
corner of the house. In a few seconds wo
heaid snap snap and then ho enmo rac
ing back again, "Who in the name ofall
tho saints together has been meddling
with this gun; tarnation bluo blazes, who
has hnd it, I sny!" "Oh, pa," said littlo
Lucy Hell, "Andy Henderson borryed it
n Friday morning to killn hog, 'n I icckon
ho forgot to load It when ho fetched it
back." "Tho devil ily away with Andy
Henderson," howled Undo Hell, furious
with rage. "Where 'n thunder '. tho am
onition,'' ho shouted. On getting it ho
pouied in tho shot llrst and tho powder
next. ithout even a bit of wadding to
Then ho started to put some more shot
on the powder, and realized that ho was
getting things mixed. So ho poured tho
stull'outou the floor and began again.
Putting in tho powder first, and then some
paper, no next gave tho wadding a nerv
ous little top nnd then poured in n big
grist of shot. Then capping tho gun
hastily, ho tore frantically out in the
snow, crawled cautiously around tho coin
crib no dog. A ion nil tho haystack no
dog. Hack of tho smoko-houso thero lie
was: thero ho goes, and pop, pop, pull',
pull, and the snot fizzled out In tho snow
about ten feet from thomuzzlo of the gun.
Undo Hill had poured nbout ninety-nlno-huiidicdths
of his powder on the
floor instead of tho bnt rcls of his gun, on
account of his tiemendous excitement.
Tho dog by this tlmo was over tho hills
and far away, evidently suspecting sin
ister designs. Undo Hill trailed back to
tho house tho maddest man 1 over saw.
His very wlilskcis twitched with wroth.
He was loo mad to bpenk. Aunt .Mary
didn't say u word, notuvcu "Oh, William,
how could youf" Tho rest of uswero
afrnid to peep for our lives.
Kixy and I slept In the spare room right
over Aunt Mary's bedroom, and that
night nlterwo went to bed wo heard Undo
Hill's deep volcu talking low ond kind of
trembling. It seemed tons. In tlio morning
ho took us to one sido and said: "Nlxy
I'm mighty i-orry I set you such an ex
ample last night, nnd I don't want tho
IlcmlcitoiiH or Lot .McCord or anybody
louml boo to get hold of It. I'd novel
hear llio latt of it. T giic 1 can hjuio

Wo told him wo wouldn't tell any ono
over tho rigjit shoulder. AVo crossed our
hearts and hoped to tlio if wo would, and
boletus haVo tho mule. Wo had a glori
ous week, and when wo ran short on"
ammunition Undo Hill told us to go to
lMrlo'tfcioss-roada and get all wo wanted
on his account. WJiou Mark Harr, Hend
erson's hired man, took us to tho station,
ho said: "I tqll vq now boys, William
Henry llarilson Dukes is just a snatlin'
feller, If yo ony tako him right. 'Taint
ov'ry man Mid let you boys shassay round
with a lig to hunt in, 'n furnish yoauin
nitlon too." AVo said Undo Dill was true
blue nnd just bully, ond so ho was. Ho
was nrccluus careful altor that lapse of his
and no never mentioned It again to Nix
and mo. AVo used to go out every year,
and ho was olvi ays ns good as gold to us.
Wo kind' a thought, especially Nlxy did,
that 11 was tho devil in tho shnpoof n
black dog that cama to tempt Undo Hill,
To catch hint when ho wasn't thinking
and trip him up, Nlxy nnd his old man
said tho devil was ulwuya up to somothlug
or that kind,
Hut I will never forget tho thrilling In
tensity of Undo Hill's tones or his eager
look as ho glanced out on tho snow and
said, Hlblo In hand: "Tho forty-llrst chap

THROUGH THE MARKET.
Tho Condition nml Trices of rrnvNIon
Tho directors of tho Washington Market
Company havo decided to introduce; tho
cold storage system Into tlio market. In
tho storehouses largo refrigerating ma
chines will bo used, by which the two
upper floors can bo cooled by pipes below
or very littlo above tlio freezing point.
Tho pipes will bo placed nlong tlio sides
and celling of each room, nnd through
them brine being water with consider
able salt, capable of sustaining a much
lower temperature than clear water will
be constantly forced by pumps, tho brlno
having been artificially cooled by contact
with pipes containing ammonia gas com
pressed into 1800 of Its ordinary space.
This system lias been employed In many
market-houses In other cities, nnd tho
principle employed Is that used in making
ice, Tlio step is a progressive one, ond of
value not only to tho dealers but to tho
A'cgctables improvo with tlio lino
Acotlicr. Tho rains of the past week havo

Tho closing of the fishing season on the
Potomac does not materially all'ect tlio

way of tho absence of tho fine Potomac
shad and bunch fish, which tho llsli from

They wero met nt tho Old Dominion boat

spect n four-oared gig that the Old Domin

pretty one, ami tho chances nro that it
will be purchased by the AVashlngtorts.
AVhlto of tho Hoppohannocks of Fred
ericksburg wns in town yesterday. Ho
rnys that their regatta on tho Fourth or
July will bo it great success. It is expected
that the Washlugtous will meet tho F.tlra
beths and Arlcls of Holtlmoro In the four
oorcd shell race. A large number of tho
AVashlngton members will accompany
The commlttco from tho AnalostauClub
on tho Potomac rcgottu has not yet been
announced fonnnlly, though Picslilcnt
McKcnncy has mado his appointment.
It is impossible to say what the date of tho
regatta, will bo. Thero seems to bo a dis
position on tho part of all the clubs to act
In the most peri eel harmony,
b'lnithson lias not been out from thenew
club yet, though ho has been expected
over every day. If Smlthson and Sweeney
both row single from tho same club It
will bo nn interesting race between them.
The Metropolitan regatta on tho Thames
(England) was set for yesterday and tho
Argonauts of Toronto woro to start. Tho
Argonauts nro also entered for the Henley
royal recaltn, nt Henley-on-Thames In
July. The crew Is tho samo that the Co

year. 'I hey nro McKny, bow, 1 15 pounds;
Murphy, 2, 1 15 pounds: Thompson, fl, 103
pounds; Hogg, stroke, 115 pounds. Not a
very henvy crew, yet their friends claim
that thev arc ns fust ns tho Hillsdalcs over
were. Their mile nnd a half at Watkins
on still water last year In 8:22J was cer
tainly n very creditable performance.
Conlcy is being criticised severely for
coiifcntlng to low double with Courtney.
Conlcy has olwoys been friendly to Court
ney, however, and has maintained that
Courtney wos faster than many people
pave him credit for being. Conloy was
ono of the single scullers who refused to
sign the paper boycotting Courtney.
So far Deoch persistently refuses to leavo
Australia, though a very lingo sum of
money has been subscribed to send him.
Ho says he won tho world's championship
in Austialia, nml thcro will ho loso it. If
Hanlan had done so, Hench would not
now bo tho world's champion, Hanlan,
'though ho lost his principal races, yet
made omc $30,000 In money, and as much
moio in presents. Money must ccitainly
bo plenty in Australia.
Tho coinniiltco appointed on the Poto
ninciegotta by tho Washington Uowing
Club consisted of Messrs. dray, Kimball
and Laplmm, instead of AVurd, as pub
lished. At the regular meeting AVednes
dny evening Mr. F. K. Waul was elected
on honorary member of thu club, which
fact gave rise to the mistake.
Tho Nationals won their game yesterday
in good style, though their butting wns
not ns heavy as usual. Harr's homo run
wos a doisy. Powell has worked his way
up from last on tho batting list to near
first. Ho made five safe hits in two days:
a pretty good showing. Morrisscy failed
to get a safe hit yesterday, but White got
In his usual two.
The fi lends of the Nationals cxnect to
tee them make a good deal better showing
at Norfolk and ltlchmond than they dill
on their last trip.
Tho 'frontons were beaten again yester
day nnd tho I'ichmondstlid not play. It
is safe to say that by to-morrow night tho
Nationals will bo In second position.
The restrictions in tho league pitching
rules have now been removed and tho
