THE QUICKSAND. As a boy I remember the place-a sterile stretch of undulating pasture land miles away to a wood of forbidding oaks and stunted birch against a gray-blue sky. Poor land, all of it, and dotted everywhere with hummocks shaped strangely like the mounds in the alder-grown God's acre far down the road; hummocks growing nothing but rank sorrel, and looked upon as Indian graves by all the children. Even they felt the desolation of the dreary waste, and when a bit of country makes this impres sion upon cheery and joyous childhood, it must be desolate indeed. Close up to the wood and so far away as to be quite lost to view from the straggling village of general store, blacksmith shop, the crippled cobbler's little shanty, and nearly a score of houses scattered along the dirty country roads-close up to the wood stood a rude derrick. It was reared by a small space where even murrain did not grow-a cilcular space not ten feet across, a shimmering surface of dark brown, sticky even to the look. The whole village turned out when the derrick of rough timber, fresh out from the woods beyond, was put up. It was a long tramp over the uneven ground: damp, much of it, even for our sturdy young logs. And when the youths dashed on and came to the broken space in the poor and sickly sod they found imbedded there, only her head and shoulders showing above the surface, a stray cow of the herd. The place was a quicksand of the most dangerous character. ¶' he sod all about quivered like a thing of life as foot was preseed upon it. and the timid dashed back in terror. But the surface of thu quick sand showed not a ripple, not a sign of the deadly work it was accomplishiung with the certainty of fate. Slowly, surely, silently, inexorably, it was sucking down its victim to suffocating death. There was a sound from the imprisoned animal almost heartrending as the party gathered about the treacherous place, and she turned upon us eyes which aelnoel hu mnan in the mingling of terror end entreaty they contained. It was then that the dor rick was raised. i'uccor of the peoor ani mal was attempted. Buot the suck ing monster of the quagmire, then for the first time revealed, had her embraced too frnmly in its thou sand arms. All the strain of double tuckle but caused lher to groan in anguish. She was pulled down, down, down. She was drawn down to dealt I before all our eyes, and when evening came, the shining sur face of the deeadly place si.owed not a bub ble to mark its direful work. They were troublous times. They were times when men dashed down from miles away--frum whole, no one know. They were times when men din.pplorod as if swept from the enrth. They were times when suspicion ruled with de6potio hand, and men's lives seemed no Inore thant those of the crimoun-hoed leaves flutte: ing lazily down from the trees painted as it by the autumn sunsets. So it camnl that suspicion -most cruel and unjust-was directed against one man, of fair faeoo and anttly form, who lived in the straggling village %bre11a and Parasols. 20-Inch Black Silk Parasol, Natural Wood and 8ilver Handles, WORTH.$2.50.

One night he did not come home to an anxious wife, and as the last hour of the wretched day came, she threw herself piteously upon her bed, and the whole light of the world seemed blotted out, as if the sun and stars and moon had been removed from heaven. They took him that night from his wagon as he drove homeward after dusk-men in rude masks and wearing ghostly iarments concealing their forms. They answered his questions with oaths, his pleadings with rude jeers. They walked him across the broad waste of undulating pasture land until they came to where the derrick stood like a gibbet against the sky, rapidly cloud ing as if no light of heaven must fall upon the dreadful deed in hand. He had long ceased to speak, to plead, to implore, He knew death was lurk ing for him somewhere in the shadow of the woods, now dimly seen, and, with set lips, he had resolved to meet it like a brave man. 'hey paused at the shaking, trembling, palpitating ground about the derrick. From the gaunt arm a rope swayed idly back and forth in the rising wind. The one man of them all whose face could be seen caught a glimpse of it, and his face whitened and hardened until it seemed carve,l of marble. Any death, he thought, but the one as some foul murderer-and he was innocent of any crime or wrong, inno cent, as God was his judge, save of suspi cion. But suspicion then had strangled justice. Right aas buried. Wrong-bitter, cruel wrong-seemed to have engulfed the world. From somewhere were brought rails rough, hand-split by hardest toil from gnarled timber-and laid under the sway ing rope, until there was a flooring over the quaking earth. Upon this the man was placed, his hands securely bound behind him, and he closed his eyes as he breathed a prayer which seemed to burst his heart. He was pushed forward, walked blindly on as directed with sulphurous oaths,and in an other instant he sank down into a yielding substance, which closed about him with a touch like that of a clammy, dead thing. He was up to his hips in the deadly quick sand! In the brief fraction of an instant his mind flow back to the scene he had wit nessed there as a boy, had dashed along all the years since to the most trival incident, had looked into the future at his distracted widow and heluless little son-had, with it all, impressed Lim: that life was of the past and that he was f.ce to face with the great beyond. He could not struggle. His legs were as if molded into lead. And before the first agony of the awful shock was over he hoard tire urocking vo'ce s growlfainter, fainter, and he was alone there in the awful solitude of the death-stricken place. lie listened-listened until the throbbing of the blood within his veins seemed to find echo in the darkness. But he was abso lutely alone. Not a sound. Not the whir ling of a bat. Not the chirp of a cricket. And even the sod was too poor to furnish a blade of grass to rustle in the damp night wind. Then the rope above him, almost within reach, swished mournfully, andi he st.ained to Iree himself until tiny specks of red danced before his vision, and he built of them strange and fantastic forms which quite amused hiul. T'len-a shock as if a separated soul had aonin found restinir place within the body. The quicksand had rchedeac his waist! Hist brair w.sa I caldron. Thoughts so crowded upoln one another that lie senll.d not to think at all. He tried to conocntrate his mind, but there was a rushing and a roar ing he could not control.

Then, suddenly, the flood-gates of the sky were opened. The rain boat mercilessly down upon the stretch of pasture lanud. Even the cattle fled wildly for the proteo tion of the wood. But upon the upturned face of the man it fell unheeded. He was communing with the All Powerful. And only after a long time he thrilled in every nerve of his benumbed body as he realized that the quicksand was only about his shoulders still. Or had it only been a minute instead of hours, as he thought? He counted the seconds-and how sweet life seemed! Ah, he must count aloud to be absolutely sure! Sixty-120-180--up! up! up to 1,800! A halft hour! It was true, oh, God be thanked, he was not sinking deeper! The blessed rain, terrific in its violence, had beaten, beaten, bested down upon the earth until it had done this wondrous thing. At a home in the straggling village where kind neighbors watched over a woman broken as a reed, was found upon-a gate post in the early morning a paper rudely written and showing a hideous death's head. It only said: BEWARE!I TE QU'ICKsAND WAITs FOR I aoNo-Doeas. Comprehending, at last, the added horror snapped the tiny strand of the woman's life. They found him, his head still above the deadly mire. There was a smile upon his face, and his eyes were half closed, as if in estacy at his deliverance. But his body was cold in death.-Thomas J. Mosier in San Francisco Argonaut. "Whore anre youn going. mny pretty maid?" "l'anliT for 'l'oron'o, sir," sht said." 'I lay go with you, n pretoty ma d?" "Yes, if you use the Wabash, str,"' she said. Automatioe anners. But time changes minds as well as man. ners, though even now when making changes from one circle to another, it often requires that adaptability which could be said found in one who has automatic man. ners.
