PILGRIM JOE.
) Adventures Await Him Every Day In
the Wcelu
I was welcomed with enthusiasm at
the town of Hoot Hog, and durin' the
day I took 70 tintypes at ten cents
a take. When niftht fell I told the
people of the merits of my Pilgrim
Pain Alleviator from a box on the
public square, and 24 bottles were sold
at the usual price of k cents a bottle.
My benign look and venerable
whiskers had made me friends and
had given the populace confi
dence in my word, and If I had had
four dozen dollar watches I could
have sold them out to the last one at
S4 apiece. It Is a lovable thing to
nave your fellerman believe In vou.
and you should never take advantage
01 me same to his undoln .
When 1 retired to my room in the
tavern that night I had a balmy feelin'
of the heart. I had made a profit of
aunnff the day and not broken any
f the commandments, and 1 found
myself remarkin' to myself:
"A coal baron may make his tens
cf thousands, and a Chicago packer
may own a yacht and an automobile
at the same time, but the man who
has the love of his fellermen has
unthtn' better than gold."
I had just fallen asleep to dream
of flyin about on golden wings whep
my door was suddenly burst open anil
-six stalwart patriots seized and
dragged me out of bed and down
stairs. When I asked for explanations
I was informed that my Alleviator had
caused the death of an eminent citizen,
and that I was to swing for it. They
wasn't going to give me no show at'
all. and I was bein' hurried to the
place of execution when the keeper of
the tavern Interfered. It wasn't that
he loved me. but that he wanted me
to pay my bill before I swung. Mis
Interference gave me a chance to get
my breath, however, and in the course
of half an hour the followin' facts was
brought to 11gV:
That the late deceased citizen was a
sufferer from heart disease.
That the doctors had warned him
gin violent excitement.
That instead of buyin' a bottle of
my Alleviator on the public square
that eavenin 'he had bought a bottle
of corn Juice In a drug store.
That on goin' home he and his wife
had grt into an argument, follered by
a tussle, and that he had run out
doors and dropped dead.
Some three or four of the more en
thusiastic of the populashun wanted
to hang me for my whiskers, but the
more conservative stepped in and I
was restored to life and liberty. Apolo
gies was even extended along with a
glass of ginger-ale. but instead of re
turnin' to my couch I silently and
without any whoop-la stole down to
the barn and harnessed my hoss and
left the town behind me.
I rode towards the town of T-ast
Chance, fifteen miles away, with the
raie moon shlnin' on the back of my
head and the frogs croakin' mourn
fully In the wayside ditches. And thus
aid I reflect:
Chased Me Around the Tent Six or
Seven Times."
"It is good to be loved by your fel
lerman. but you never can tell how
long his goodness is goin' to last.
There's only 20 per cent profit in
bein' good, but Providence alius seems
to come around Jest in time to prevent
your being hung.
"A populashun should be encour
aged to be enthusiastic, but a feller
ought also be ready to dodge 'em
when they get too much so."
They didn't have no brass band out
to meet me at Last Chance, but when
I got to town the mayor ,ive me a
brotherly welcome and introduced me
to all the prominent citizens. It was
early in the mornin'. but the said
promlnents were already playin' a
game of poker. Owln' to my general
benignness I thought it better to deny
that I knew a bob-tailed flush from a
full-house, and that I looked upon it
as a sinful game. I had Just sot up
my tent and got ready to take tin
types when a female came jumpin'
over boxes and barrels and grabbed
me oj- me nair ana wniFkers and we
went roilin on the ground toeether.
It was five mlnits before the police
sorce, wno was an old man, cross
yed and lame in the left leg. could
pull us apart. Then the woman stands
up ana says:
"He's my Reuben and I'm hi Hn
per. He ran away from me in Indiany
our years ago. and I've been follerln'
Dim tor a year.
I have alius made it a pint to be
cool and calm when lookin' into the
face of death, and to retain my ven-
erameness under the most tryin cir
cumstances. On this occasion, as soon
as i could git my breath back. I smil
m an ouy smue and purceeded to
rrove to the crowd that fiction is
stranger than truth. There was no
doubt that woman was named Hanner,
and that Indiana was her home, but I
asked the people to look at me and
aay if I looked like a man who'd leave
a lovin" wife to split her own stove
wood and eat her own cold potatoes. It
was a well known fact that I was a
pilgrim and well fixed financially, and
every few days some female who
wants to live a life of ease and luxury
was ciaimm- me as her Ions lost hus
band. Was It rleht? Was It incourag
ln' to put my Pilgrim Pain Alleviator
within the reach of all at the low price
cf ?5 cents a bottle, with the corks
stickln" out so they could be pulled by
the teeth? And so I growed more earn
est and spoke of optical delusions. This
woman was squint-eyed and probably
rear-sighted, and it would not be ct
all strange if she took me for one I
was not.
If Manner had kept cool there's no
tellln' how many of the crowd would
have bin on her side, but she used
hard words and wanted tp fight, and
after hair an hour the mayor summed
up the case as rollers:
"Hanner says Joe Is her long-lost hus
band, and Joe denies it. In this ken
try one man's word Is a" good as an
other till he's proved a liar.
We take optical delusions into ac
count, and It's our opinion that a wo-

then how can we hope to build up indus

"It's the opinion of this populashun, as
expressed through me. that Hanner has
made a mistake and is sorry for It, but
that Pilgrim Joe is also sorry for her.
He's so sorry that-he didn't turn out to
be the man wanted that he will present
her with a JIG bill and his best wishes
for her future welfare."
I was quick to hand out the money, but
Hanner wasn't quick to accept it. As a
matter of fact, she broke away from
them who was holdin' her and made an
other rush at me. and she was not recap
tured until she had chased me around the
tent six or seven times and fallen' on her
nose. When she- realized that optical de
lusions could prevail In that town she
took the money and engaged a team to

A LOOSE ENGINE.
The little station at Clatworth had
wakened from it usual noontide siesta
for the advent of the important trains
of the day one from Anderford Junc
tion, bringing rlassengers from the
London express; the other from re
mote country towns, conveying those
who desired to catch the up train at
the Junction for Waterloo.
A man who had alighted from the
down train looked around him with a
smile of dawning recollection. Clat
worth again after five years!" Curious
that chance should have obliged him
to get out here, on his way south, and
return to the Junction to retrieve an
important package he had left behind
there.
A feeling: of satisfaction stole over
him at the difference between his past
and present self. In those old days,
when his commercial traveling had
necessitated a fortnight's sojourn at
this dead-alive village, he had been of
little account either in his own or any
other world.
Then his chance had come and he
had taken it. Five years of rough-and-tumble
iife in every quarter of
the globe, with a success at the end
of it that landed him high and dry
on the level of prosperity, had nearly
effaced all remembrance of Clatworth.
As he crossed the line to the strip
of geranium-bordered gravel that
formed the up platform, odds and ends
of reminiscences began to piece them
selves in kaleidoscopic fashion through
his brain. - There was the stretch of
dusty road that led to the pond and
the mill; across the fields rose the
tower of the old church, embowered in
trees.
He was about to overtake some rec
ollection that evaded him, when the
train came in. the engine pulling up
Just opposite to him; and as he moved
toward the carriages he was suddenly
arrested by a face that brought back
vividly, like a bolt from the blue, the
most unpleasant experience of his ca
reer. The engine driver, leaning a little
over his brake, was looking him full
In the face with astonished and un
easy recognition, and, as the traveler
took In the sunburned features, the
dark, menacing eyes, the strong, brown
hand that seemed to twitch toward
him. he remembered everything.
There had been a quarrel between
this man and himself over a girl
Epple, the village belle. The young
commercial had interfered with their
courting, had captured Epple's truant
fancy with his affectation of superior
ity and town ways, and after persuad
ing her to throw the other over had
played fast and loose with her him
self.
It had been a fortnight's Interlude of
mock sentiment and passion to him.
MP FOR PARKER.
a lifetime of love and desperate grief
to her. When he said good-bye to her
in the mill lane, and she realized that
he had failed her, she gave one bitter
cry, and, in answer to it, some one
had run across the adjoining field, had
leaped the intervening hedge, and had
struck him down with one swift, sav
age blow.
He had picked himself up and gone
away with a curse in his heart, not
daring to risk a fight, for the discard-
ed lover was mad with jealousy.
And now, for the first time they
were face to face again.
For an instant both were silent;
then the engine driver said, hoarsely,
"What are you doing here?" And the
other, with a contemptuous smile,
said: "Hows Eppie,
The driver's furious eaze flickered.
and the traveler intuitively looked past
the engine., across the station yard to a
patch of green, where, at a cottage
door, a woman, young and Comely,
stood with a child in her arms.
The blazing sunlight shone full on
their faces, glinting in the gold of their
hair, enhancing the? clear white and
red of their cheeks: they looked the
embodiment of spring and BUmmer. of
childhood s and womanhood s health,
mental and physical, in its perfection.
And, looking back into the driver's
eyes, the traveler read the intolerable
suspicion and jealous fear that flashed
into them, and understood what had
happened in those five years. His mo
ment of revenge had come; he had
neither waited for it nor counted on
it, but he would take advantage of it
to tne run.
"I was coming along to the June
tion," he said, "but I'll wait for the
next train. Then I can. have a talk
with Epple about old times." And he
deliberately turned his gaze toward
the cottage door on the green.
The driver's hand fell like a sledge
hammer on the brake, and he seemed
as if he would leap from the engine;
but the guard had given the signal of
departure, and the train glided slowly
out of Clatworth, while the words
"Curse you!" smote the air like the
lash of a red-hot whip.
The traveler smiled, carried his bag
along the Parcels Office, and stayed
for a word or two of converse with the
porter, reminding him of their acquaint
ance five years back.
"I remember the old place well," he
said. "It looks just the same as it
used to little changed, any more than
the people."
And he went toward the level cross
ing, where the gates still barred the
footway from road passengers, though
no train was due.
"What's the matter with your boss?"
said the station master at the Junction
to the stoker of the Clatworth train.
"He seems to have gone queer says he
must get home for a bit, and he'.'l be
back to taki Lh-? fit e-f.fteen out ven
if he has to run the whole way. It is
?" with a slgnnicart pause.
"It's to do -with his wife." said Ihe
stoker, slowly. "He sets great store by
her and he thlnk3 that's trouble up.
But he'll kep his word pure f-nough
and be back in time for her." And
he nodded toward the engine.
Meanwhile the driver had made his
way to the "goods" just startine- for
Clatworth. It, seemed , an eternitv to
him until his .cottage came in sight,
and he stumbled out of the van nice
a man who has had too much strong
drink; but the porter laid a detaining
hand on him and pointed toward the
waiting room, round the door of which
a group of people clustered, peering
and whispering.
"What's up?" said the driver, huski
ly. . '
"You remember that commercial
chap as was hanging round here five
years since or thereabouts? He came
back this afternoon and missed his
train somehow, so he went across to
the parcels office and put his- bae in.
and stopped there along of me. It might
have been a couple of minutes or more.
I never thought to warn him of the
loose engine as follows you nn to the
Junction 'twasn't as If he was stran
ger; he must 'a' known well enough.
He could see the gates was back. He
was looking over his shoulder as he
set his foot on the line, and I shouted
out to him then, for I could see the
engine round the bend, and he nodded
back, with something I couldn't catch;
and then, before I could get to himIt
was all over!" The man lowered his
voice. "He was cut right in two." he
said, "and he's In there. Best not look
at him. I think" he hesitated "I
think Epple's wanting you. She saw It
happen and ran across here to know
who 'twas. And I wouldn't tell her.
Tou'd best tell her yourself. She said
It made her feel rare and nervous about
you, and she'd be glad when the 5:15
