If he doesn't read me at the first opening, tlieu I'll feel pretty safe, despite the old gentle niai's crusty temper." 1 he traveler rode up to the farmhouse, his eyes fixed upon a man who stood in the doorway. "Good evening, tar," called out the young man as the other made no move ment. -'I presume this is where Mr. Merrill lives?" "He does on Sunday. Ilcst of the week "Uncle I.ije runs the place. Kf you want to s-ee me, you'd better 'light ouan hitch. Supper's jest ready, an I don't wait for no man," and eo speaking the farmer turned hia broa.d tack and disappeared within the ouse. TLe subdued clatter of knives and forks met his ear, and through the long hall there came an appetizing odor of hot food. His hesitation was brief. A long ride had made him hungry, and literally fol lowing his nose he stalked into the dining roc m. ' rsiC down an eat," mumbled Uncle Liji?, his mouth full. "We was spectin ye." ''There must lie some mistake, Mr." " Kt they is, 1 hain't made it. Kf you'ro hungry, eat; cf not, sit. by ontel 1 ain't," growled the farmer. The farmer's wife, two sons and a daughter were present, but only one of these won much attention from the trav eler, and before that, silent meal was end ed he caught himself acknowledging that he had never behedd a prettier, more graceful girl than rosy cheeked, bright ;yt-il, curly headed Maria Merrill. "Jim," said Uncle Uije, at length aris ing, ' jou go put up tho strangir .5 hess. Mari', you go fetch the doin's in t'other ruoiu, an you, stranger, come along o me?" The young man obeyed. In a few moments Maria followed them, bearing pipes, homemade tobacco, glasses and a bottle of whisky. Placing these upon the table, she quick ly vanished. ''sitop thar," exclaimed Uncle Lijo in his deep, echoing voice as the stranger was about to speak, and pouring out a jilass of whisky ho pushed it forward. "Drink that, then tako a bmoke. We'll lot.k to business a'terward. " "I'll smoke with pleasure, but I seldom drink" "I reckon you'd better drink, stranger," and Uncle Lije slowly arose from his chair, "ef I ax it as a favor." "That's another thing," hastily replied tho traveler, swallowing tiie liquor, though it brought tears to his eyes. "Jeod enough. iNow set down an have a smoke. I won't have one word ontel you've did as 1 say. " With a faint smile tho traveler obeyed the peremptory command of his eccentric host, and the t ain sat blow ing a cloud in perfect si lence. Quietly Mrs. Merrill and her three childreu entered the room and took seats. Then emptying tho allies from his i-s-1 austed pipe Uncle Uijo spoke: "Now, stiunge-r, we kin talk business. Who air ye, an what ye want o' me or mine?" "I'm a drover looking for cattle. I heard you had some to dispose of and came here to tee if we could muko a bar gain." was the promt. t reply. "Yes, I Iiearn you was likely to come this way, and so, as mebbe you noticed, we was sorter on the lookout fer ye. I've gut the cattle, an I'm always ready fer u trade ef the tarms suit. Liut fust you had a good supper all you wanted to eat!"' "Certainly, and I am ready to" "I don't doubt it a mite, stranger, but jest hoi up a bit. That was good whisky and pretty fa r tobacco, see-in I raised it, eli? An we've treated you like a gentle man, hain't we? Jest so. Waal, that Wits all fer the fellow you saiel you was, an here's for the pizen critter you be." As he spoko Undo Lijo straightened out his arm, with a huge li.-t at tho end of it, and the drover lay quivering in tho opposite corner of the room, knocked senseless, and in a minute or two mure he was bound hand and foot. As he tried to remember what had hap pened he heard the sharp explosion of a rii'e, followed by anotner and another, mingled with wilel cries and yells of pain antl anger. This lasted several minutes, after which came silence. The door opened, and a bright light fitishiul in upon tho prisoner as Uncle Lije entered, accompanied by Maria, betiring a candle. "You've woke up, hey?"' ho said, with a harsh laugh, bending over the young man. "I'm right ylael o' that, fer it'll save me trouble. Now your legs is free. Git up and travel." "Not unless you tell me what you mean" "Jest as you say," and he tossed the prisoner upon his shoulder and passed through the hall and out upon the piazza. "Now, then, stall thar," he added, lower ing the young man to his feet. "Don't try none of your tricks, or you'll fare the w uss. " Two men lay dead across the doorstep. Two others, their garments torn and blood staineti, were lying upon the ground bound and helpless, while little Tom, the youngest son, crouched between them, a cue keel revolver in his hand. "You don't 'pear to like the way your speculation's turned out, " laughed Uncle Lije. "Never mind. Thar's two on 'em y .-nder'll be able to keep you company ia pulling hemp soon as the neighbors git here." "Good heaven! You don't think I was in league with those men?" cried tiie young man as a sudden light burst upon his head. "And that's why Uncle Lije, I'm Will Cook, your nephew, son of Aunt N mcy's brother. Feel in my breast pock et,. I've got letters for you, only I thought I would surprise you all and havo a little fun lirst by playing stranger." Uncle Lije was too immensely disgust ed with himself to tell the story, but little Tom quickly supplied the deliciency. It seemed that, he had been out gun ning, and running a squirrel into its hole concealed himself in a dense, clump of lushes to await the animal's reappearance. While waiting he heard voices, anei the Lrst words he caught caused him to crouch istill closer. Two men were slowly passing by, and their words revealed a bold plot to rob Uncle Lije, who was known to have sold a valuable herd of cattle two days before. Not only did Tom hear this, but he hf-ard that one man was to drop in at the house, and if possible obtain a night's lodging, thus making it easy for him to fed mi t his confeelerates at the right hour.

IIow & 9foIe on a li-atifnl Fact Led to a Doctor's Iownfall. Mnstapha approached the carpet of jus tice, dragging with him a man with a look of solemn and impossible wisdom, like that worn by cows, jackasses and some cithers of the animal kingdom. With them came a woman attirenl in mourning gar ments and from whoso eyes the tears wc-ra Streaming. 'What is the matter here, Mustapha?" inquired the cadi. "This woman saith that she hath been grievously wronged by this doctor," re plied Mustapha. "Let us hear your tale, woman," said the cadi. "Allah Kebur God ia great and justice shall be done." "Know, O source of all wisdom, that I have a daughter who waa beautiful as an houri in paradise, 6ve that she had mole on her left cheek. This doctor said that for 5 shekels he would remove thev mole, and that her cheek would remain as the skin of the peach, soft and rosy. I procured tho 5 shekels for him, and he pint some fluid on the mole which caused burning and au inflammation that affc erwartl enlarged and burst, so that now my daughter is left hideous as the mother of Sjhitan. " "liochesm on my eyes bo it! lathis true, man of pills and powders?" "It is, O lord of mercy. But I tlid not know that this would happen, and I am ready to give back to the woman her 5 shekels. " "You did not know? Now, by the sa creel sandwich that the prophet ate at Aden, how dared you undertake on tho person of a true believer a thing of .which you knew not what ruignt be the conse quences?" "I guessetl that it would come out all right, your highness. " "Well, you guessed wrong, as you shall presently see. Where did you learn to guess'?" 'At a medical university, your high ness. " "How long did you study there before you were allowed to ply your trade?" "Six months, O fountain of wisdom." "Can you read or write?" "No, your highness." " What did you study at the university?" "We had ten lectures ou materia medica, ten on physiology, ten on anatomy, ten on pathology, and the professors vivisected some u00 dogs for our entertainment." "Mustapha, tlid you ever eee the wom an's daughter?" "I have, jo..r sublime highness." '"Was she as beautiful as the wotnin hath said?" "Yes, truly, your highness. " "Allah knows that beautiful faces are none to plentiful, slave. You shall bo pun ished not only for decreasing their numbeT, but for pretending to know how to heal when you have learned only how to kill. Musrapha!" "Here, proprietor of nil leno wlodge. " "Do you go to this man's house and seize all tho medicine and instruments t herein, form in lot him his own Then let him be put tin a plat the public square, and each day be given a generous portion of medicine, and let each of his in struments in turn be trieel upon him. If by any chance he shall survive this, then let him be publicly bow strung." "I kiss the dust of your sublime feet, O creator of justice," said the woman. "Allah Kebur God is gr-eat!" remark ed tho cadi as he retired to his harem. "Mohammed is the most high propiiet, and I am the only original cadi from Cadi ville." Life. Not Always Safe. A dudish locking party in a long tailed overcoat and turned up trousers was pick ing his way gingerly over a muddy dervvn town crossing the other afternoon when a rakish looking party in a rain coat autl rubber boots caught sight of him. The ppectacle of a live walking dutle ap peals irresistibly to the average man's sense of the 1 udicrous, and tho rakish look ing citizen, imitating the gait and general bearing of the other, stalked along sol emnly by his side a block or two in appar ent unconsoiemsness of tiie fact, that ho was creat ing a sensation and attracted tho amused attention of everybody on the side walk. In going over another m uddy crossing the; rakish looking party, as ff by accident, tripped the dude. The latter narrowly es caped a fall, and as he recovered himself he swung his right. It landed squarely on the jaw, and his tormentor wen.it down as if a pile driver had struck him. " i'ou can ape me, don't you know," he drawled, "but, baw Jove, you mustn't monkey with me!" Chicago Tribune. Lncky. "Tliis man Lobbs is one of tho luckiest fellows I know of. You heard of his arm being blown off last week in that expler- bioli?" " Yes, but there is nothing very lucky about that. " "Ir, was his right arm, you know." "Well, what if it was his right arm?" "Why, he is left handed." Tit-Bits. Surprised. "Mrs. Goodseiise is going to start a dress reform movement here. What do you think of it?" "Mercy! I had never noticed that her figure was so bad as all that." Chicago Inter Ocean. Plifinrr.
