" No, I won't drink with you t
day, boys," said a drummer to^seve al companions, as they settled dou in the smoking car and paased ti bottle. "The fact is, boys, I tm quit drinking-I've sworn off." E was greeted with shouts of laught< by the jolly crowd around him ; the put the bottle under his nose and ii dulged in mzuy jokes at his expenai but he refused to drink, and was ratl er serious about it. " What's tl matter with you, old boy ?" sang 01 * one. "If you've quit drinking, somi thing's up; tell us what it ie." "Wei boys, I will, though I know you' laugh at me. But I'll tell you, a the same. I have been a drinkin man all my life, ever since I w<? married, as you all know I love whv . -key-it's as sweet in my mouth a sugar- and God only knows how I' quit it. For seven years not a da has passed ov?r my head that I dido have at least one drink. Bot I ai done. Yesterday I was in Chicagf Down on South Clark street a custom er of mine keeps a pawn shop i connection with his other business. 0 ' called on him, and while I was then a young man of not more than 2c wearing threadbare clothes, and look ing as hard as if he hadn't seen i sober day for a month, came in will a little package in his hand, lirein * blingly he unwrapped it aad bandee the article to the pawnbroker, ' say ing, 'Give me ten cents.' And, boys what do you a appose it was ?" 1 pair of baby shoes, little things wit] the bottoms only a trifle soiled, as i they had been worn only once o twice. 'Where did you get these ? asked the pawnbroker. 'Got 'em a home,' replied the man, who had ai intelligent face and the manner of i gentleman, despite his sad condition .My-my wife bought them for om baby. Give me ten cents for 'em-J want a drink.' 'You had better take the shoes back to your wife; the ba by will need them,' said th3 pawn broker. 'No s-she won't, because because she's dead. She's lying al home now-died last night.' As he said this the poor fellow broke down bowed his head on the showcase and cried bitterly like a child. "Boys,' said the drummer, "you can laugh ii yon please, but I-I have a baby ol my own at hom<% and I swear I'll never drink another drop." Then be got up and went into another car. His companions glanced at each oth er in silence ; no one laughed ; the bottle disappeared, and soon each was Bitting in ajseat by himself reading a newspaper.-Chicago Herald. A Pretty Lesson. A remarkable bird story is related by Thomas Prince, of Carson River Nev. A pair of robins built a n<-8 on a fence near his house, and in a bush not far away a pair of ca'birdR had their home. The yonng in norh nests were hatched about the same ^ time ; but after several days the cat " ^ birds were seen no more, having probably been shot by boys. The yoong catbirds were evidently starv ing. When the robins came with a worm or beetle for their young, they always alighted on the top rail of the fence before hopping down to their nest Every time that a robin thus alighted the little catbirds opened their mouths, thrust op their heads and began to cry. They were begging "-to'the beet of their ability for food. The robins appeared to understand the appeal, and began feeding the . hungry little catbirds. They did not do what they had undertaken by halves. Every evening the female robin sat on her own nest and warmed her young, while the male robin took the nest of the catbirds. In this way both broods were reared, the little orphans growing op as strong and . lively as though they bad been cared for by their own parents.

March, 14 -The hop pole cutters and bark peelers in dif ferent parts ot thia county are be ginning early to talk of the presence of bears in unusual numbers in the mountains. Sbandnkip, Hurley, Woodstock and Hardeubergh town ships set-m to be the chosen field. They have emerged with their young from their winter " sleeping" places ne veril weeks before they are usually looked for, notwithstanding that the snow is .still deep in tLe woods. The Neversink region sends in the story that a bark peeler attempted to cap ture a p iir of cubs a f??w days ago, snugly stowed away in a hollow stump. He took them up in his arms and was hurrying away with them, when the mother appeared. Think ing that he might out run her and reach a nous-' that was only distant about half a mile, the b<rk:peeler kept the cubs in his^ arms and ran. Toe old bear gained on him rapidly, however, and he put down one of the cubs, hoping that the mother wo ld stop with it long enough to allow him to get beyond her reach with the other oue. She t ped, bot only an instant. Se .i only one of bei cuba had been ideaeed she rushed after h m again. He saw that it would be impossible for him to reach the house before the mother would be upon bim, and he dropped the other cub. This satisfied the old bear. A party of armed men subsequently went in search of the bears, but had not captured them at last accounts. The Woodstock country is excited over the adventures of four men and a boy with a she bear and three cubs on Friday last. The party was hunt i g r bbifs near the Greene c unty liT.e Thi* boy fired at. a labbit he h?td scared from a bruah pile, and at the sound of the gun a large bear c.me out from behind the rco's of a fallen tree. Site was followed by three cub0, and ru?bed directly at j tho boy. The bear was only a few step? aw iy, and the bey fired the un" <hic?*rgr?i h.<md of his gun at ber, but . - ir was io-ided with fine shot r-b? -fret was only to increase the bj>:rV Jury. T>he boy ran and shouted '.>r h*-!p. The four men appeared in MroetofNve the boy, who was being closely pressed by the enraged bear. Tb'-gu: s of'he p-trty contained noth ing bur fit;eshi)t, but the men attacked the animal. The cubs huddled to gethjir a short distance behind their mother. W:iile the men were firing i -i to the old bear, the boy carried -.way two of the cubs. The mother discovered the loss of her cubs at nr.c*?. and broke away after their cap ri;r. Sb.., had received nine heavy charges of shot, however, and wae| .mortally wounded, and fell dear? be t?re she had gone many steps. A Word fo? ins Mother-iii-Law. Uurltnffton ITrnvkej/f . There never was but one home es tablished without a motherin law. And that seems to have been a mis t-ike. That mother in law-less home walked right into trouble, as the "parks fly upward.
