TIM PRICE'S PROQ HUNT. It V TOl'.K IIOIXiK. Tim Price devoted much tiino to in vention fur my henelit, because I never doubted liis word. I stood in bis estima tion as "a fellow you could poke, uny lliinjj into and he'll b'licve it." lie boasted so much about "stullin' " me that. I found whenever any one bad a lie to tell they came to me to tell it. I therefore concluded that it was time to check him into respect. He was a j:mI rille shot and very proud of it. His pride vibrated between the ownership of a rille and a watch. A trade was to him worth a day's fast ing, and he would go any distance for a dicker. "I tell you. Colonel, I've got it down to p'ints. 1 trades my watch for a rille when the game gits ready for shootin', an' my rille for a watch when thar's iiothin', an' the days gits too long fer an honest day's work if you stop by tho sun. Thar's no man livin' kin beat me shootin', an' thar's no livin' man kin jedge the innards in a watch better nor: that you can catch him. I kin. I had a watch oust that the skin is too lornr rane for von. shots." Tim said nothing, being much occupied examining Ids rille. Pretty soon ho spied another iron one. "Now, by thunder, I'll show if I can't nhoot. There baint no man nowhere in West Virginity kin 'beat me shootin' Hold on now. Thar he is under that rock. Yer too far back a bit thar!" I had a wire running to a small float from this one, which I got hold of from the boat. As J mi bred I jerked tin frog into the water. "Missed again, I said. Hotter let nie kill them with tho oar. Tim "fio Well, I never," said Tim, think ing better of it. "Thet b'ar must bev chawed the bar'l crooked when ho bit oil' the sight," and Tim sighted along his gun. ".No, taint. J unit the. pow der, neither, nor the cap, nor tho ball, coz I run cm mvself. I5y gosh! Col onel hit's the patches. I made 'em out uv Scth Jones old boot legs, an' he's alius drunk. Hits tho denied patches. I hev s so usecl to wobblin they can t stop, tin' I soaked 'cm, too; I thought the water studied of whisky." 'Pshaw! Inn. i on re like all the rest here. You're the best man until you're tried. Any boy ought to shoot a frosr." "Now, lookco ver, Colonel; I woiihln t 'low a jedge on the bench to say I can't hoot, nohow, without "rUin' lined for I wtiz once fer only tellin' was an ole fool. An I oil tne line 1 cl say lie were no mgger fool nor any other feller that 'ud say what he did, au ketch him 'nougli live minners for a week's lishin' up our wav, coz 1 couldn't pay the line, an' he let me oil' an' came for the ininners. I've shot a deer through two hoofs to w-onst an' him a runnin' on a bet an' say I can't, bit a frog! Let's see another un an' I'll swoller the ramrod ef I don't jrit him!" Tho next one was wired to a log, so that balls would not knock him ofl', but a good side stroko would. He soon canto into full view, and Tim hailed him with delight. "(Josh! Lookee thar at him scrouchen, bunched up ready for pprawlen. I had a rille I traded for oust that 'lid a rone oil' itself if it were dared like that." Hang! The frog shook, but held his ground. Tim swore a streak ami stamped, Hung down his rille ami nearly upset the boat. I laugh ed until I airbed. "Why, Tim," I said, "you cotildn t hit a school-house. You've been stutlin'r me about your shooting, (iive me your rillo and f II kill it for you." Tim swore "he'd eat . skunk first." Loaded, aimed with great precision, and tired again, with no better result. The wires held well. Tim stood dumbfounded. "I'll move in closer, where you can hit him, or blind him with the ilash, so I hi rly yards Tim clubbed I'll carry have for Drill; the frogs I killed and tho gun. A nice show you your morning's shooting." Tim picked up a frog and dropped i as if it were hot. He was frighten. "I "Colonel, thar's sometliiu' wrong Everything's ngin' me-tho devil's in il It's heavv as lca-l, an' ou've Knocked it still" as a maulin'-wedge. I'm g'ttin' Highly jest like the a-ger took me afore, an' titer's mUerv -o:u:n' in my legs. I've got the a-ger!" 1 gathered up the frogs and took lin'in and J im to the house where ho began to revive on a glass of whisky. "Tim," I said, "le-iv is your ride: I don't want it; I'll have fun enough tell ing about your missing the frogs and niv having to kill them with the pad dle." "Jon't, don't," said Tim. "They'd never stop runnin me an boastiiiin over me. l it rattier gin ver my ole rille-" And then, Tim," I added, "when I tell them that vou don't know a frog when vou see one but keep shooting all the morning at chunks of cast-iron what will they thin-k of vou? hat i glorious fun it will be. Hero look at this," and I handed him one of the iron frogs. Slice me up and kivcr mo with salt if hit baint iron. How did you iver gel hit turned inter iron so quick ?"s:iid Tin) with a most piteous mixture of shame and astonishment in his face. "I'm ready for the him in' sarmen uv a deni ed fool. I'll give jer the rille and tater-. too, ef yer'll keep jour mouth shut. I'll bring yer a hull pail full of live min ners fur perch bait, an' a - an' a purp uv Spider's, if yer'll say not bin' to no body nary time." As soon as I could slop laughing I said: "Jim. do you think I m a fellow you can stull' anvthinginto and he'll be lieve it?" Denied if I do. I never done it. I never said so nohow no time anywav. Don't kick me, Colonel. I'm chawin'i the ground. You've got me this time." Flattery Prom an Unexpected Source.

By this time we were at horn" aain. mind, upon both there cannot be bunt; did a little extra painting on them to make them look more nnlural, and placed them in well selected positions on the river banks, under roots, in grass, on drift-logs, and one with its head just above the water. Tho next morning Tim arrived, and after much boasting of what he could do we got off in the skiff, Tim standing in the bow and I sitting in tho stern pad- 'dling. I soon took him to w here ho could see one of the frogs. "Hold on. Colonel! Thar's the all liredest j ailer belly I ever seed.

"Hain't he two bullets through him now?" Why no, Tim; you said this was an other frog." "So 'tis, so 'tis. T'other un's blowed clar out 7 night."

People were wont, twenty years since, to regard ; Charles Dickens as an after-dinner I speaker almost without a superior in cither hemisphere. The' last visit of the 1 great novelist to the I'nited States suf i liced, however, to dissijiate the illusion under w hich his countrymen were labor jing. "l'inally, gentlemen," remarked .Charles Dickens, at tho banquet given I to him in New York on April 1H. !Si;s, I do not believe that, from every honest ides of the Atlantic, cannot be absent the conviction that it would be better for this globe to be riven by an earthquake, tired by a comet, overrun by an iceberg, and abandoned to the Arctic fox and bear, than that it should present tho spectacle of these two great nations, each of which has in its own way done so much for freedom, being ever again airayed tho one against the other." Conqiare with the hj jierbole of this extravagant, or, to use an American ism, "hifalutin" elocution, the easy graco and quiet dignity of the speech delivered, with admirable effect, by the American Ambassador, Mr. James Rus sell Lowell, at the dinnerreeently given by the Institution of Civil Engineers. There w ere Englishmen present at that dinner who again to employ an Ameri canismwere well calculated "to hold up their end of the plank." The House of Peers was represented by Lord Der by and Lord Kiniberley; the House of Commons bv Mr. Bright, Sir Richard Cross and Air. Childers. No one of or dinary culture who chanced to hear or to read the speeches delivered by the English Cabinet Ministers would to use a phrase of which Robert Southey was very fond have "had his mind scratch ed bv anj- one of them. Mr. Bright, indeed, could not altogether get away from party jMiIitics, even upon that con fessedly neutral ground. But when Mr. Lowell rose, there was in the accents, the delivery, the voice, the manner, and still more in the words of the speaker, that which irresistibly engaged the fancy and riveted the attention of the hear ers.
