| There are mafy persons who never
'heard of Columbus, and some—but not
80 many—who do not know who
'Thomas A. Edison is. But in his own
realm “Bow-legged Bill” Darling 1s
’more famous thalt either of them. In
that particular portion of the Missis
; sippl Valley which he frequents, not
|to know Bow-legged Bill would be an
: unwelcome distinction.
| 811 l sat one October morning upon
lthe shady bank of the bayou, pleasant
|ly engaged In extracting the lusclous
lpulp from a ripe papaw, a sack of
'which lay at kis feet. When papaws
are ripe, pecans are dropping and
squirrels are prime. All these things
|were in the bayou woods, and Bill was
happy. Half a dozen coon dogs lay
about In expectant attitudes, waiting
for Bill to turn his attention to more
stable viands than fruit, and an an
clent muzzle-loading rifle beside a tree
‘|occasionally shared their attention.
Now and then Bill cast a reflective
‘|éye upon a stranger who was watching
bim. The stranger was well dressed
and well fed, of middle age, but sad
and solemn of visage.
“Look a-yeau, strangeh,” sald Bill
|at last. ‘“You-all ain’'t feelin’ right
peart. You betteh eat a few of these
yeah papaws. They ain’t nothin’ bet
| teh.”
\ The stranger took one with melan
choly thanks. As he munched It the
sadness gradually faded from his face.
| “That’s something like,” he sald,
: taking another. “Like being a boy.
Obh, if I could get away where no one
knows me, and rest, and rest!”
| “I don’t know you none,” said Bill,
cheerfully. *“Set right down heah and
jrest as long as you-all got a mind tu.”
“I want to get out of the world of
business, where I'll never hear the
sound of my name. I'm sick of it!"”
“Well, strangeh,” said Bill, “that
ought to be easy. It ain’t as If you
was famous, like me. Most everywheh
you go you'll heah my name, but T
ain't neveh heard yourn, naw, begging
youh pardon, I don't want tu. But ef
iyou want to git away—why, I'm start
llu' up the bayou right now, and you
can come with me.”
’ Half an hcur later they were In
| Blll's skiff, far in the bayou fastnesses.
The stranger had begun to drink’ in
,deep breaths of the free air and to
look about with an amazed interest.
'He picked up Bill’'s gun and examined
ilt and sighted it.
“Any coons reund?”’ he asked.
’ They disappeared into the woods
|that day, and for two weeks Bill's fa
i vorite resting spot near the mouth of
‘the bayou knew. him not. At last they
came back, the stranger pulling strong
ly and RBill lounging in the stern over
‘a pile of pecans and butternuts.
| “Bil,” sald the stranger, “I haven't
been square with you. I'm a big spec
ulator, Bill, and a rich man. I want
lto give you something—a house, a
cabin-boat, a farm—say what you'll
have. You have pulled me through an
awful fit of the blues.”
| “Strangeh,” drawled Bill, lazily, “if
I had a cabin-boat I'd have to take
care of it. If I had a house I'd huve‘
ito live In it. If I had a farm I'd have
|to live on it If T had a new gun I'd
have to ile it and keep it clean. If I
owned the biggest business In Sent
Louis I'd have to go to Sent Louls to
run it. No, suh, I don't want none of
ern. I've got six coon dogs now, and
couldn’t use anotheh. I don’t owe ary
'oent for rent, taxes or grub. My hunt
iin’ license is perpetooal and automatle,
and fishin’ is free. No, suh, misteh,
thankin' you all the same, they ain't
nothin’ a rich man can do foh me.”
Seven Ages of Insurance.
At first the agent,
Nagging and bothering the busy man;
And then the manager, with gladsoma
face, it
His eagle eye upon a city full .
Of folks who will give up the ghost some
And then the stuffed director, waxing
Upon the bounty of the specter's walk.
And then a president, of lerdly mien,
Full of strange oaths on the witness
* * * The fifth age shifts !
And see, forsooth, a vivid yellow eur,
Tin can on tail filled up with clinking
Fleet-footed, beating It to Albany:
Then comes the politician, sly withal,
Who loses sleep conjuring hold-up bills
And making life insurance pay the
Last scene of all, the persons higher up
In absent-minded, blank oblivion,
Who, when you ask them, *“Tell us who's
your friend?"”
Talk aimlessly in foolish platitudes,
Sans memory for names and .everything.

Everyc;xé thinks that everyone
twenty years older than he is should
be reconciled to die. .
'l‘he inquisitive traveller through
this world would have a hard, cold
journey if he encountered many such
persons as the one who frustrated the
intentions of a fellow passenger, and
whose exhaustive statement was re
cently chronicled in an exchange. He
had suffered from domestic troubles,
and was at the time on his way to
start life afresh in another section of
the country. He was a dyspeptic-look-!
ing man, and when the inquisitive pas
senger behind leaned forward with a
confidential “Pardon me, sir, but what
—" the dyspeptic was ready.
“Adam was the first man,” he said,
in a cold, gray monotone. ‘“Moses was
the meekest man; there never was any
meekest woman. Columbus discovered
America, John Hancock signed the
Declaration of Independence. In the
winter of 1847 and 1848 potatoes form
ed almost the sole food of the Irish
peasantry. White sheep eat more than
black ones because there are more of
them. A door is not a door when it's
ajar. - Schiey’s name {is pronounced
‘Sly,” and golf is ‘goff.” It is highly
improper to wear a silk hat with a
sack coat. There never was any such
person as the Ahkoond of Swat. The
great weakness of the American peo
ple is signing petitions without read
ing them. Yes, it is a good morning,
and I have used everybody's soap.
Here the inquisitive man attempted
an interruption, but it was of no avail.
“The foregoing information,” went
on the accentless voice, “is all I know
about anything of any name or nature
-—past, present or future. I don't
know anything else of any kind, char
acter, style, shape or color, good, bad
or indifferent. I not only do not know
anything else, but I don’'t want to.
“I want nothing in the world but
peace,” he added, after a few illumin
ating remarks about his past trials,
“and if you don't let me alone 171
throw my gripsack out of the window
and jump out after it. I have spokea.”
