"I'll trouble you for your little wad if you please!" The footpad was polite, but Insistent The luckless pedestrian looked uf and down the dimly lighted street, bin nobody else was in sight. "It will not do you any Rood, my dear friend," said the gentlemanly highwayman, still holding a rcvolvei pointed in a most threatening mannei at the other's head. "The nearest sa? loon is half a mile away, and the dis '.ance to the nearest policeman is ex? actly the same. You and 1 have tin locality entirely to ourselves.

I could just as well have loft it it home this evening. If you'll put your fingers in my right vest pocket you'll find ?9, more or less. It's all I've got about me, and I was going to spend It to-morrow for a new set of tires for my bicycle." "What kind of tires?" sternly de? manded the footpad. "The Fladger & Sklmmerhorn Punc tureless Anti-Sideslip." "Can you get that for $9?" "I know when- I can get it for a shade le s than $9." "Great Scott, old man! You keep your little wad and go and buy that tire. Say, do you know that's the liest tire on earth? Why, darn it. I ride the Fladger & Skimmerhorn myself. Shake!" If this should meet the eye of the gentlemanly highwayman he will learn that an outrageous confidence game was played upon him. The belated pedestrian whom he mei on that occasion uses the Jingo Slabb Extra Resilient bicycle tire, and bus no use for any other kind. But he happened to see by the light of a street lamp that the gentlemanly highwayman wore a Fladger &. Sklm? merhorn button in the lapel of his coat. Furthermore, he had $117.50 in anoth? er pocket. THIS KNIGHT WAS BOLD. Sir Lnmbton Loralm-'a Tiro Great Iiav? Recullcd. Sir Lambton Eoraine presided over a meeting of Baronets, held in Lon? don the other day. The downtrodden and oppressed Baronets have banded themselves into an organization to maintain their right of precedence over the younger sons of Ixnds "and sich" and to generally brush up the respectability of their order. While Sir Lambton was fussing about "precedence" and such non? sense, how the news from America re? garding the Cuban situation must have made him think of the days of his youth, when as a young man of 35 he swept into Santiago de Cuba and saved the lives of Americans, defying with his little gunboat the whole Spanish Power. The Virginius had been captured and the people found on board of her by the Spanish had been tried by drumhead court martial and were be? ing shot in the plaza of Santiago. Captain Loraine steamed into the har? bor, and landing his men, marched them to the place of execution. "Stop the shooting!" was his order. "Oh, we have shot all the English; we are only shooting Americans now," replied the courteous Spanish com? mander. "Never mind, stop the shooting!" replied Sir Lambton, and added, quoting Admiral Tatnall, who helped the British at the battle of the Peiho River. "Blood is thicker than water." The shooting was stopped, and Captain Ixiraine protected the Americans until "Albemarle" dish? ing came in with an American man of-war and took charge. Soon after, at the request of the United States Government, Captain Loraine brought this ship to New York where he was received with salutes and honors and the freedom of the city presented to him. The silver miners of Nevada sent him a silver brick inscribed. "To Captain Sir Lambton Loraine?this is a brick, and you are another," and other presents and addresses were given him. He is 60 years old now, and will probably nevor again have as stirring an ad? venture as he did that day when he steamed into Santiago de Cuba nor such a day of glory as the day he steamed into New York.

They said they'd send it right away, and I must have It to-morrow, for the dressmaker will be here the next day." So Watson wrote as follows: "Messrs. Sylk & Sattin: Will you [ please send at once the five yards of lining my wife purchased at your store | yesterday?" "Let me see what you have written?" said Mrs. Watson. "Oh, dear!" she said, after reading I it, "that Isn't half posiive and definite enough. They'll pay no attention to that. I'll sit down and write to them myself." And this was what she wrote: "Messrs. Sylk & Sattin: You will re? member that I was in your store at about 10 o'clock yesterday morning (or it may have been as late as 10:30), and I purchased five yards of percaliue for dress-lining. One of the salesladies at the lining counter will remember about it. The one I bought it of was tall | and slender, with dark eyes, and I remember that she had on a red silk waist trimmed with black velvet anil a red and green piaid skirt. She will remember that I purchased the lining of her and she promised me that it would be sent sure to-day. It has not come and it would not make auy par? ticular difference, only that my dress? maker is coming day after to-morrow and she will need the lining the first thing, and cannot go to work without I It, and her engagements are such that | she cannot come to me any day but day after to-morrow and the next day, so if the lining should not come it would put her back so that she could not finish the dress, and I cannot gel her again for nearly a month, and 1 simply must have the dress by the last of next week, and 1 am tuo busy tc come downtown to-morrow and get the lining. The saluslady I spoke ol with the red silk waist waist will be sure to remember about it, and I told her just why and when I wanted it and she promised me that it would be sure to come. Of course It may come be? fore you get this, and if so it will be all right, but I simply must have it be? fore the dressmaker gets here, for she I will want to go to work on the skirt | the first thing and she cannot if she does not have the lining. Please send j it right away. "F. S.?Five yards of pcrcaline skirt j lining at 38 cents a yard, bought oi saleslady in red silk waist and plaid skirt, to be sent sure yesterday, and | has not come.
