Fine ladies' misses'aud children's overshoes at McKnight's. A Story. Orce upon a time there lived in a country village a youthful swain who longed to be a knight of the garter, which honor in those days was awarded only to the brave who had slain some enemy in defense of his lady love or Iiis own property. This ambitious young man sighed for some great knight or demon to attack him that he might cut off 1rs I ead with his ponderous sword i d crush his writhing body with his iron heel. He spoke to his lady love in this wise: "Oh, lady, would that some monst-r in human or demon form would waylay me in some lonely dell and strive with me for my life, then would I show you that I am worthy of your smi'es and the highest decorations my king can bestow. So quickly wouli I slay them that they would not have time to utter a prayer to their gods and with one foot, on their quiver fig bodies would 1 proclaim to the world that I was Knight Fryenpac, the love of the fair lady " Now, it came to pass that two demons were lurking, in the spirit, in the ant estrial hall of the fair lady and, hearing their kind threat ened with dire disaster, resolved to be revenged. So they betook themselves to a lonely moor over which the swain had to pass on his way home and, with hearts burning with revenge awaited his coming. Soon he appeared in the darkness, urging his foaming charger to his greatest speed, for the road was long and lonely. As he apprsached the place where the demons were hidden they pre pared to spring upon him. With a roar that sounded like distant thunder they exclaimed in an un known tongue, "hold up your hands " The swain, in a paroxysm of fear, dropped his sword, and, lixe a parson pointing out the nar row way, his hands went heaven ward The demons, seeing the pitiful plight in which their victim was iashed hi* charger with firey thongs and he bounded awav, bearing the would-be knight to his parential roof. The demons then returned to the mansion of the lady love aud, ir the spirit, whispered the taie of her false knight's adventure to her, so that she seemed to dream of it. When she awol^e she knew that Knight Pryenpan was a chump. So, upon his return to visit her, when he began to tell her of his terrible fight with the demons and his wonderful conquest, she turned from him with scorn, murmering something about his being an okl bloke. With a wail from his broken heart the swain hied him homeward where he told his parents that the northern clime, infested as it was with demons and false maidens, made him tired and he had resolv ed to seek a scene for his future adventures. And he pulled out on the hurricane deck of a cayuse f*r a country far, far away. C haw S ib. agai Marias. Silas Blake is building stable for Mr. Davies. Peter Hughes is around attending to business.
