Dan, the newsboy, got off the train at

conversing with two women. "Oh, but

the younger of the women exclaim in a

send her, and her mother expects her sure,
and she'll be at the station to take her off,
and she'll be a real good girl and not trou

"They'll be most crazy if she don't

will put them out dreadful, 'cause they've

A sharp whistle recalled the conductor,

Bessie insisted, looked "just like grandpa."

The shock threw him off his feet, but ha
crawled on. He must reach the sleeper.
There was Bessie; he had promised to take
care of her. It scorned ages before he
reached the platform. Overturned on the
track before him was the sleeper. The
dim gray light of the early morning just
showed its outlines. Further than that he
could not see. . .
He could hear cries inside, and through
one of the windows a head was thrust.
With his heels he broke the glass of the
window nearest him; then he crawled on
to the next and next, breaking each in
turn, until Anally he reached the fourth.
, This was where Bessie was.

It was lighter now. The sun must have

were groans and shrieks on all sides.
Suddenly from beneath a pile of clothins
he saw a tiny hand thrust out, and he
heard a stifled cry.
Eagorly he pushed aside the heavy blan
kets and pulled the child out. By the
light of the flames, now rapidly noarlng
them, he could see how white she looked,
and her eyes were closed.
: Could he bo too late?
He tried, to climb out of the window,
but the seat on which he stood, broken by
the crash, fell beneath his weight, and he
was thrown book into the car. He struck

THE HEW BAKMA1D.
It was in Maoriland in the sixties that
is, in the days when the diggers dreamed
not of prohibition, and when one was
much more certain than now to got in a
mining town a dram of decent stuff inca
pable of blowing the cork out.
Plainly, there was something astir.
Everybody had on his best. A new bar
maid had arrived (there is no hope for the
wretches who would rob the diggers of
that oomfort) at Widow Brown's pub. In
twos, threes or sixes the whole place drop
ped in four or five times an hour to have
She was the sole topic ot conversation.
"Ain't she clean?" said one. "That wur
slashing feed we had today," said an
other. "Best tucker ever I struck," added
a third, with a furtive glance from beneath
the rim of a hat that seemed intended as a
cover for his face.
By the end of the week the nowoomer
was no longer a stranger. Everybody
knew her. She was a woman ot over u,
marvelously preserved. She had never
been married, though well, she had been
queen ot many gold rushes.
The man who has spent a quarter of a
century in the Australian provinces has
seen ten civilizations, anyway. There is
ground for belief that later civilizations
The woman of today is not the cook of
the past. There is an air of cindered chops
about the present hapless creature. Today
too many matrons want their daughters to
play "the planner." Too many mothers
wash the clothes and get the languid girls
to bring them in. Thus the man passing
by the clothes line Is deceivod. Therefore
our civilization is comparable to a needle
which has been too finely sharpened and
too much reduced at the sides. This re
duction has been visible throughout Aus
tralia for SO years past.
Now, the consequences of this fatal re
lapse of woman are manifold and terrible.
The bad cook is only a slow murderess.
But there was grit in our barmaid. She
was none of these. She could produce a
meal worthy of man, and digging breeds
men. She was tidy to a hair. She was
trim as a snug vessel, and she was hand
some. Of course the whole district became In
fatuated with her. Diggers go that way.
They sit In the solitude of their huts and
dream of the ideal in the guise ot the
handiest flesh and blood substitute. In the
night it is their companion. In this way
do single minors love a million times it
is their polygamy. Thoy love with a dis
tant, worshipful love "the desire of the
moth for the star."
They are pleased if she visits their claim
and watches the water flying from the
sluicing nozzle. Thoy show her the rain
bow under the jet. They bring her nug
gets. And if she speaks to them, be it only
a "Good day!" they fanoy that their affec
tion is making headway and rejoice In ev
ery fiber of their being.
Out of her admirers the charmer reduced
the cluster to two, and between these the
contest was terrible. They hung about the
place like unto dogs chained. She ran
against one or the other, or both each min
ute. She spoke to them singly or in a paii
40 odd times an hour. It was evident tc
the boys that something was looming up
The aspirants were named Louis and
Charles, both Frenchmen and over 40.
The worst of a Frenchman is that France
hangs like a plumb bob before his nose,
and everything has to be regarded across
France. But the regard here was not of
conceit it was fury.
One night there was a rumor that
Charles had struck a "pile" in his claim.
People began to bet whether our ideal
would be influenced by the find. It woe
freely asserted that night would see It de
cided. I was hot and restless during the even
ing, and I went down to the sea beach,
two miles distant. I sat on a log and
smoked and let the sweet hum of the Pa-
oiflo eat Its way into my ears. This con
tent of reverie surpasses the pleasure ol
books, and is the nearest approach to the
pleasure of gratified love which a mind un
dlstorted can discover on this crude planet.
Suddenly I saw a figure streaming out
toward tho sea. . It was Louis.
"Don't be a fool!" I said, as I locked
my arm in his and led him away. He had
been rejected. Additional confirmation
was granted when tho pair were seen
walking out for a stroll on the morrow.
They were married. I didn't see the
wedding (a most informal transaction), at
I had all my work out out to guard Louis.
May I nover again take such a contract!
Every wedding Involves a question ot
sentiment. One morning the husband
went to cut wood. Ho returned suddenly
and took a silent peep Into his apartments.
Then he stole off on tiptoe for his gun.
That is the other end ot the sentiment.
When he returned, the room was empty;
the birds had fled.
And because he couldn't find anybody
to shoot he pined away and grew silly.
When I left, the abandoned one had mode
his claim over to a stranger.
From that day tho story is a blank. The
denouement is unknown. But wherevei
she is I swear the scones In the cupboard
will be capital. As said before, she was a
good cook. Some have thought that cook
ery Is a form of virtue. They erred. Vir
tue Is a form ot cookery. Sydney Bulle
tin. How the Old Piano Tuners Sseapedi
I had my piano tuned yesterday by an
old man with long white whiskers. Hi
looked like the same old fellow I met In a
small Pennsylvania town some years ago,
engaged in the same business. When he
had finished the job, I thought I would
touoh him up a trifle. Looking quizzically
at him, I said, "I won't strike a note on
It for two hours." He seemed surprised
and asked, "Why?"
"The old story, " I said. "Do you mean
to say you never heard it?"
"Well, I guess yw've got me. Where
did you learn that trick? It was Invented
by the old time tuners who traveled
through the country picking up a job here
and there. Most of them tuned very badly.
They left a piano in worse shape than they
found it and were always in danger ot a
thrashing. They started that Idea about
letting the Instrument alone two hours
after tuning so that they would have time
to get out of town before discovery. I con
fess that I did give similar advice In those
days and generally drove pretty fast when
I left a house.' But you need not be afraid
now. I am not going to leave New York
for several days. ' 'New York Press.
