I The Old Reliable
Druggist
fHE METAL SOLDIER
(Original.)
Antnlne Gmpanl. a tobacconist la a
imall town war Parts, tired of having
the wooden figure standing before his
shop backed by gamins, concluded to
replace it by a metal on*. Siaoe be
was to make a change be might as
well (ret up something unltjne. ao he
went to tbe city and employed a young
?rt student to design a figure for him
Tbe artist hit upon a soldier lighting
hla pipe. Tbe butt of hla gun rested
on the ground. With one hand be held
a match; with tbe other shaded the
flame from tbe wind, only there waa
no flame. Then a happy thought struck
Gaspard. A tube waa run from the
pipe down through the statue and into
the shop. The match waa hollow and
connected with the gaa pipes. A mov
able plate covered with phosphorus waa
adjusted to the roughened end of the
match. By meana of a wire leading to
the abop the plate could be pulled and
the gas lighted. Gasparvl sucked a
rubber tube leading from tbe pipe,
which would send forth clouds of to
baovo smoke. Then he would turn off
the light from the match.
When the Franco- l*nisslan war came
on. Gaspard's son. Pierre, aged eighteen,
became a French soldier. His old
mother, who doted on him, begged hard
for him to stay at home and wept bit
ter tears when he marched away.
Then came the news that the Prus
sians were carrying everything before
them and marching on Paris. One
evening Just after dark old Gaspard'*
door was flung open, ami Pierre rushed
tn, pale, bleeding, evidently fleeing for
his life.
"Is the place occupied by our troops?"
"No."
"Then I rnn lost"
"Why so?"
"I volunteered to lnrk near The en
emy's advance posts to gain informa
tion for our general as to wfiich route
they would take. I was discovered
and pursm-d. In a few minutes they
will be here "
"We can hide yon."
"It would be useless. They will
search every house in the town and
burn every atlek of timber in It to
uncover mo. My ouly hope was that
our troops were ben-, and since they
are not I shall be taken and hanged
for ? spy. I have been tired on and
am wounded. 1 can go no farther for
losa of blood."
Meanwhile the rrusstsn outposts,
consisting of a dozen men. advanced
to within half a mile of the town,
whore they were halted by the lieuten
ant In command.
"The place may be oconpicd by the
French." he said. "We must be care
ful not to be drawn Into a trap You.
Battel, and you. RubMoux. go for
ward. If you are shot, we shall know
that the I'reach are there. If they are
not, come hock and let us know."
The two men pushed f< wnnl to the
very verge of the town. Across an open
space they could s;-o old <:,i?p?rd'?
shop, which was dimly lighted, as
usual.
"Hack. Rnbldonx," whispered Mattel.
"The place Is occupied."
"How do you know ?"
"I can see the figure of a soldier."
"Where?"
"There, before thst little shop."
"By gar! You nre right. What shall
we do?"
"Rotnrn and report the matter hi the
lieutenant."
Back they wont and reports that
the French were In town. They had
seen a soldier on post before a shop.
"Nonsense"' exclnimcd the lieuten
ant. "If they wore there they would
have put out a picket or a vedette.
He ordered the tnen to spread them
selves as skirmishers and move stealth
lly forward. When they came to the
,Maco whore Battel had discovered the
soldier, they stopped, anil there, true
enough, he was. standing before old
tJaspnrd's shop.
"What's he doing?" queried the lien
tenant.
"lie's on post." xnlil Rubl<V>nx. "Per
haps he'a guarding the mnn we're aft
or."
"Tn'i* n fool. or. rather, a coward
You wish mo to abandon tho pursuit of
?vne who doubtless bold* In '? -taut so
cnMa. That follow mi? not tv n sol
dlor at *11. S'ngnlnr tli.it lie stands so
*tlll. Come; wo arc wasting time."
At that moment tho tlgatv tn front
of tho shop ? as dimly illuminated hy
a tiny flame. ami tlio Prussians could
plainly s?>e that tho mat* was a soldier,
with hla gun resting on tho ground
and loaning against hla shoulder. Tho
.1a mo mac and foil na of ono pulling on
tho plpo. and atnoke was alao vlalblo.
"Sacro!" exclaimed tlio llrutonant
"Ho'a a *< 'Id lor, after all. and whi-ro
thoro la ono there mu<t be more. Tho
French a no not fool* to occupy a town
with one man. There must be at least
a battalion, but they are very poor aol
llm to leave no picket out hire. We
might enpturo thetn."
Tho officer decided to go hack as fast
a* to could and reported that there
waa a force of tho enemy in the town,
with no picket out. ami they might bo
aurwinded and taken. An hour later
two rogtn'onta of tho lino moved out
Ono encircled tho town, while the other
advanced to demand surrender. Tho
only French soldier in the town was a
metal ono that had the coolness aa tho
Prussians advanced to light hla plpo.
Old Gaapard after his sou's arrival
bad gone out to reconnciter, ami In con
eoalnient h - had heard Pattel nnd P i
btdonx wnvot* about hla statue.
When tboy withdrew ho wont hack,
got up a team to remove hla son and
to gain time conceived the plan of mak
ing hla soldier smoke for tho Pmaaiana.
When they came in force, Pierre had
Juat boon driven away.
