Tko Sultan of Brun*! 1B 83 years of

while lie stoops as he walks, he makes

tinged with sadness.

Mirage Off Coney Island.
Early marine observers on the
snowy beach at Coney Island yester
day morning had a fine glimpse of
air shipping. The sun. was about an
hour high, the breeze light, and the
sea had just enough of a lop on to give
a slightly scalloped horizon. Strung
out in order from the sun track the^e
were seen coming In a tern, a Haber
man's sloop, a schooner with topsails
drawing, and a liner making her way
np the main ship channel. This lit
tle fleet in the offing was held in a
mirage which rifted every vessel above
the horizon by about ten or twelve
degrees, and left a strip of clear air
beneath every water line. Thus float
ing in air, they stood up the harbor
on tCalr way like an argosy in the
AU at once something happened to
'the meteorology which had produced
the vision, some invisible air current
rolled athwart the line of vessels.
First the liner dropped back inco the
sea, then the topsail schooner, then
j? the fisherman, and last of all the tern;
one could almost imagine the splash,
as'the ships of the air returned prosai
cally to the ocean.-New York Sun.
Old time "Curl Up" Skates.
Few ol the present generation of
skaters evor saw a pair of old fash
ioned "curl up" skates or know what
they are, but if they are native born
their parents or grandparents can
probably tell them about these old
time appliances for skimming over
- the ice. The boys -and girls of today
have quick fastening, light and hand
some skates, and in many cases keep
them attached to shoes that are used
j only for skating and are put on at the
In the old days straps for the "curl
ups" were unknown, leather thongs
or stout: strings being used with a
sort of "harness" to keep the skates
on the feet The term "curl up" comes
from the manner in which the forward
end of the skate irons were .curled,
extending over the toe of the foot.
Doubtless many of the old folks can
remember when the cheapest skates
consisted only of a wood bottom for
the foot and a strip of metal for an
i-lce surface. These were "cheap" in
. deed.--Hartford Times.
DON'T TB3NK YOU. ARB OLD.
A certain amount of social life ls
absolutely essential to the old as well
as to tue young. A woman never
grows so old that she ceases to enjoy
the company of others, and generally
the older she grows the more she en
joys it It is always a pity to see a
man. rall into a-state'which he ex

"Yander he comes, Mammy!" yelled
the little yellow-headed, freckled, boy,
running Into the rickety shanty and
out again, dancing with delight A
scrawny, withered, weary woman came
out of the house with two dirty chil
dren at her heels and behind them a
half-grown, red-headed, gangling girl,
with two fierce little fiery braids stick
ing away from her poll.
A burly man on a ragged pony came
galloping down the country road.
"Supper ready, Mag?" he bawled at
"Supper! Why, 'tain't no mor'n 7
o'clock. What's up?" v
"What's up! Everything is up!
Squinty Smith has' gone an' done it
right this Urne. He killed Frank Cop
ley in the Hazard s'loon, put four cold
uns in th* dep'ty sheriff, and- Lord
knows how many he's ashot sence I left
The children stared in awed aston
ishment at this bloody news and fol
lowed him round to the corral.
"Well, what y'all lookin' at? Here,
yon, Siss," to the red-headed girl, "get
i move on you. Maria, don't stand
thar all night like you was locoed. Git
my supper." ,
"Did you see him, Hank?"
. "See who?"
"Why, him,. Squinty Smith?"
"See him! Of course I didn't see him.
If I seen him it'd be all up with him!
I'd a ribbed him up with lead till he'd
i-sunk his own grave. But I didn't
have no gun, nohow. Sher'ff Hous
man says I must jine the posse," an' I
says, 'Sher'ff, if Id a-been sher'ff 'stead
3' you, I wouldn't need no posse for to
ketch Squinty Smith nor no other orn
ery outlaw like him.' So I didn't have
ao gun, so I just come home for .'git
supper an' ready up my arsenal. Git a
move on thar, Siss."
The red-headed girl tossed her head
md disappeared into the tumble-down
kitchen., The mother got busy with pot
ind pan, and the man, blustering fierce
ly about what "he'd a-done if he on'y
had his weepons,' pulled his Winches
ter out of the closet and began to slip
cartridges into the magazine.
"I don't want no mor'n a peep at that
?ol-dinged Squinty Smith, nohow. He
allua wuz ornery, an' he otta been
put outa biz a long time ago. He's had
Sher'ff Housman bluffed for two year
an' more, an' he's got purty nigh
every man.in Plankton buffaloed! But
CU show him!"
The man's slatternly children stood
about him in gaping admiration. The
red-headed girl stuck her head in at
the door and said:
"What did you fetch feat, daddy?"
"Dry up, you ninny; I didn't have no
time to think about fe tebin' home
nothin', 1 come home to git suthin'. I
come home to git my weepons, an* if
ever I? ketch a peep at that blamed-"
At this "instant there was a sharp,
rasping click at the open window and
a blue barreled gun muzzle jumped
into the light.
"Hold up your hands, Mitchell!" said
a quiet but very distinct voice.
The big man at the table held up his
hands with a foolish effort to smile at
the face that looked over the gun.
"Quit yer foolin', Smith," he said,
weakly; "put it down an' come in."
Squinty Smith, a bull-necked, one
eyed ruffian got in at the window
without foregoing an instant of his
"I'll take charge of these, Mitch," he
said, coolly putting hia host's pistol in
to his coat pocket, "and this. Both
unide-lookin' guns, but I'll take charge
Mitchell sat still; his wife and Siss
watching the performance from the
darkness of the kitchen, while Smith
walked out into the lot and deliberate
ly dumped the rifle and' the pistol Into
"Got any more guns?" he asked, com
"Nary a gun, Smithy," answered Mit
chell, trying to wink knowingly to his
"All right, you can let down your
mitts," quoth the outlaw, "You sit
that, and here, Mrs. Mitchell, you set
alongside. Now make that gal o' yourn
Sit me some^supper." i
The scared children huddled in the
lorner behind their fallen hero. The
woman, fasclnat?d into submission, sat
beside her husband. The outlaw, his
big, blue revolver beside his plate, at
tacked the pile of corn bread. Siss, the
red-headed, nervous, viperish-looking
Slrl, came in and out with a dish of
potatoes, some fried bacon and a can
"What makes you act so foolish,
Smithy?" Mitchell was whining, "ain't
aothin' wrong, is they? You might a
knowed I'd a give you your supper
thout no such row" as that"
"You mighiT and you mightn't. Got ;
my eggs?" growled Smith, leering at j

"Ain't got none fur you!" snapped !

The desperado turned red with fury, :

Smith, transfixing tb? hulking cow- !

Sis? came in with two fried eggs.and
laid the dish before him. He took his
knife and fork and reached for the
food, hurrying like a hungry, hunted
"I'll come back and blow the whole
Siss stood irresolute an instant be
side him. Her snapping blue eyes were
on the pistol. Quick as a flash she
grabbed it up, whisked round the table,
and with the cocked weapon held in
both her skinny bands and pointed full
in the -bad man's face -she yelled:
"Now, you Impident pup, I'm a-goin*
t' frazzle you with bullets!"
Smith was so astonished that he
let fall his eating utensils, sat bolt
upright, stiff as a lay figure, pale as his
dirty hide would go, his lips hectic,
his one eye starting and the sweat of
rage and fear upon his mottled fore
head. The little yellow haired boy
crouching in the corner, began to
squawl lugubriously. Mitchell and his
thin wife sat and stared at the trans
"Git up an' tie him, daddy!" she al
most shrieked. "Tie him 'r I'll frazzle
him over the flodr!"
Mitchell looked at Smith and paused,
his big hands shaking a bit.
"Tie him 'r I'll frazzle the both o'
you!" she roared, stamping her foot
in an ecstacy of wrath.
Mitchell hulked out Into the yard
for a rope, but Siss, the little serpent,
held her quarry motionless with the
glitter of her eye and the portent of
the big revolver. But Mitchell came
back and the cowed outlaw was limp
and weak before the untrembling hos
tility of the red-headed girl. And when
Mitchell's courage began to come back,
and he had fixed fast the lariat about
the pinched arms of Smith, there was
a clatter of hoof-beats in the road.
Smith nade a motion as if to rise, but
the blue eye and the big gun bade him
sit still. And when Sheriff Housman
and his posse came galloping up Mit
chell was in the road yelling:
"I ketched him, sher'ff! I got him
in yander tied up an' licked!"-Chic?
As Manifested In'the Torture of Ani-.
mais in India.
- The Oriental religions have had
great credit for teaching their peoples
respect for the rights^ of animals and
general mercy and kindness to them,
and yet these religions are responsible;
for cruelties horrible to read of, as
for instance, the long drawing out of
a lingering death of some diseased ani
mal in terrible suffering, on the theory
that some frightful sinner of a human
soul, having grovelled so as to have
transmigrated into that animal, ls re
ceiving his allotted punishment. An
East Indian humanitarian, Mr. Labhah
ankar Lavmidas, writing from Nagar
Wado, Junagad, India, a few weeks
ago to Lord Minion, begged him to put
a stop to the impaling alive of pigs,
lambs and fowls in religious cere
monies, and the killing of animals with
swords, knives and spears in the hands
of the populace, to make a religious
holiday; and the crushing of miles long
rows of tied-up goats under the wheels
of a heavy chariot that is driven on
the bodies of the unoffending creatures
for another sort of religious ceremony.
It appears that under- the compact be
tween the British government and the
natives the government may not inter
fere with the killing of animals in the
name of religion. Torture of animals
means a moral degradation of the tor
menters no matter how high and holy
the cause may proclaim itself to ,be?
whether in India, Europe or the Unit
ed States.-Boston Evening Transcript,

and place them on the surface of the
