Why did you steal my pocket-book J and why, having stolen it, did you bring it back? Are ywu a thief?

And it looks like, continued tbe boy, bursting into tears it looks like-nay little sister. Your little sister? repealed Miss Pep pard, ber own eyes filling witb tears. Is she witb her mother?

But if she does, If I'm a good boy, 1 can go to see ber; but if I'm a thief And wbeu 1 saw that picture I said I will be iood- Il seemed as though the baby wai alookiu' and wantiu' me to kiss her. No boil tier llieil me but ber and my mother. Here's your pocket book. Mirk Peppard took it from his baud, opeued II, found he conteuts as be bad described theui, aud then st for full five minutes iu deep thought.

Then go to the aeed store aad give tbein j the note I will write for you And here I ar two Brs dollar bills. An' dar money is soon parted! exclaim ed Peteona. No matter 'bout de fust word. Iiul ibe boy felt on bis knots before Mi.s Peppard and sobbed outright. A u' he'll bibber tows back any mo', sang Ooa al lha top of her voice, as she went about tier w ork that afternoon after Pick's departure no, he'll nebbcr come back Dy mo'. But be did. Just as the sua was sink lug io the west, a nics looking, dsrk eyed, dark haired boy, dressed io a suit of gray clothes a little io large lor him, and carry ing a package lo bis arms, came up tbe garden path to tbe door of a mile of a cot tage. It was Dick, so changed that Petr ous scarcely kuew bim, and tbe pscksga contained the aeeds sud onion seta and young lettuces sud cabbages, and before dark be bad plauted them all, oudcr the superintendence of Mist Peppard, lo the mite of a garden, sod Mrs. Brown bad no chance of sending ber compliments that season.' And now ma'am, said Dick, after sup per, I'll go. 1 thank you ever so much, and I with my mother bad known yoa. P'r'sps she knows ber now, said Ona. And I wilt be a good boy 1 will, In deed. With tbo help ol Uod, said Mist Pep pard, solemnly. Witb tbe help of God, repeated Ibe boy lu a low voice. But I guess yon bsd better stay here to night, continued Miss Peppard. You co sleep in the wood bouse. ' Peteona will make you up a comfortable bed tbere. Shan't do uo such ting! said Peteona, defiantly. Ona! reproved her mistress. Till my dishes is washed, I uieau, Miss Peppar', said Oua. And then to-morrow morning you can start for that baby. I'v always wanted a baby. Cats aud dogs aud birds are well euougb in their way, but a baby ia worlb them all, Golly ! note y ou're talkiu' Miss Peppsr' shouted Oua. lit always wanted a baby a wile baby loo. Nigger babies aiu't much account. Jus' as waluble to dar madders, dougb, Pipose, Niggers Is such fool! And il you choose lo stay in Summer town, said Mi Peppard, you may bave home hire until you can belter yourself. There' plenty of work for you ; aud lha youth upon whom we have depended for errand and garden help, etc., I A drefful imarl, nice, perlite boy! chimed iu Out; as lazy aud sassy as ba esn lib.

The very next night a sweet baby girl witb great blue eyes and fair carle setup, on Miss Peppard's lap, looking wonder ingly about, as she ate her supper of bread aud milk, al Peteona and tbe dog, sud the cat aud Ibe birds, wjose noses, by-the-byc, were as straight as ever. , And before long Dick Poplar became the most pop'lar dreadful, 1 kaow, but I coaldu't help it boy in tbe neighbor hood, be was so clever, and so obliging, and not a bit sassy. De Lor' works in funny ways, too' ennf, said Peteona, one April day, about a year alter tbe return of Mist Peppard's pocket-book.

AMMTIIKIl DS.I.IO: KlflMO, A Belgian prulemor predicts snot her deluge. At crrtsiu regular recurring in. tcrval, he maintains, the water of one beuiisphcie are suddenly precipitated aero the equaior, sud flxnl the other. Tbe last of these deluges, which wss that of Noah's time, wa from the north. Hence (he great preponderance of beat In the Southern hemisphere, aud of tbe gco eral trend uf tbe continent. The next deluge will be from South to the North. Tbe cause, be argue, is ibe alternate io crekse and decrease uf ibe ice caps at tbe poles and tbe consequent change of tbe earth's equilibrium. Since 1244 tbe south pole has been continually enlarging wbiie the north pole baa been proportionally di minishing, to-day tbe diameter of tbe southern glacier being about 3,0 JO miles and that ol the northern 1,600. Tbe ae. criions at the south pole will eveulaally destroy tbe equilibrium aud cauae a del uge. Doo'i think yourself immaculate and set yourself up as a pattern for your wife. If she wants lo go to church sud yon don't, remember that it msy not do yoa any barm to go lo cburcb. Don't scold your wife, sud dou't beat your children, if you bave any. Teach your children by example. Be a copy lor them. Excuse tbein for such faults a tbey inherit Dou't bequeath a batty temper tod whip them for it.

Signs of peace A palcbwork qallt. tiik (t-irr DMstsai, Long before Colamba' diacoeery, probably early lu tbe Christian era, civi.i- iktion began iu America. Five distinct rial iv civil'iktiotis at known lo barer I lted ; on ia Peru, one In Yucatan, one In Mexico, one In New Mexkio, Arlsnia and Colorado, and one In the valley of Ibe Miaalasippi and Ohio liver. The latter were lha mound builder who worked the copper mine of Lake fuper lor and worshiped lb American eagle The New Mexican race we call tbe Foe bio, or town builder, end toward the cloae of their career the Cliff dweller. Wbeu the white came lo Ihlscontinent the Peruvians aud the civilisations ol Yucatan and Mexico were flourishing; the C'iffdwellera bad nearly disappeared and the uieuud builders bat been swept away and replaced by barbarous northern bordes. Living lu a moist land rich In wood, tbey built of this material, and most of their works perished with them; bat the New Mexican people occupied a dry, elevated and barren country abound ing In plateau and cliffs, wbere sg (cul ture, requiring irrigation, could be car ried on only along the borders of Ibe few and widely separated streams, or where wster could bo stored In reservoirs. Tbe region was and is a desert, in whlob set tlements mark oases. Wherever the Pueblos could cultivate the ground (hey built towns ot stone or sun-baked brick, the only materials at hand, in tbi nesrly woodless land. They raised cotton, corn, pumpkins, beans and other vegetables; bad domestic animals, and were quite advanced In weaving, pottery making, and other primitive arts. Al one time then occupied every available spot lu Eastern Arizona, New Mexico, and Southern Colorado; but the natual condi tions of climate and topography forbade that any great accumulation ol wealth should repay the emlit ss patieuce of (heir toll. A bare subsistence was all tbal could be wrong from the desert land, When, therefore, ibo northern tribes brgsn to crowd down upon (bo scattered settlements, tbosa wild meu of the chase, who, having neither property oor fixed homes, had everything to gain and noth ing to lose in the struggle, slowly wore out the strength of tbo mora civilized race. While the services of every man, women and child mast bave been ueeded In agriculture lo sTcure a living, ' a large proportion of tbe tuale population were In aroit restating the increasing incur slon of oomada. Wcakeued by battle and famine, the geuller race, who bad treasured and developed the saorud germ of human ' progress, ' abandoned tbelr elites in the valleys and look refuge in ledges of almost Inaccessible cliff. Here tbey boilt themseive stone bouse, not to be approached except by ladders, and supported themselves ou what could be raised along streams at the toot of Ibe rock. All of this transpired before tbe fifteenth century. : Wbeu the Spaniards first penetrated Into New Mexico tbey beard fabulous tales of the seven Inhabited cities, full of gold and silver, perched on tba summit ota high rock. Tbey vainly eudeavored to cross tbe deserts, separating Ibem from these to-called ciliet of Cibola. Almost nothing wat known of Ibem uutil a United Statet government expedition, overcoming great obstacles, encamped finally at the foot of tbe escarped platean on whose top stand tbo seven Moqol towns. Tbey found a civilized agricultu ral people, clad in cotloi and wollen goods of tbelr own weaving, engaged In cultivating maize, vegetables and fruit, but also men of the chase sud thorougly wsrlike. This Is the only surviviug remnant ol that once powerful people, who, driven from the valleys to the clifls, peiiahed tt last by the bauds ol the wild tribes we are now exterminating. These savages have met Inns a culti vated race, before wbote. wealth and power I heir ferocity avails little; and the early civiiizers of this continent, the Cliff dwellers, who fought so long aud hope lessly for what they bad gaiued of art and scieuce bmiJ religion, are now heiug avenged. lu (he northwest corner of the loan col lection are two frame filled with photo graphs.
