Ino and Uno.
Ino and Uno are two little boyi
Who always are ready to fight,
Because each will boast
That he knows the most,
And the other one cannot be right
Ino and TTno went into the woods.
Quite certain of knowing the way
lam right! Tou are wrong I"
They said, going along.
And they didn't get ont till next day!
Ino and Uno rose np with the lark,
To angle awhile in the brook,
Bat by contrary signs
They entangled their lines.
And brought nothing home to the cook
Ino and Uno went ont on the lake,
And oh, they got dreadfully wetI
While discussion prevailed
They carelessly sailed,
And the boat they were in was upset I
Though each is entitled opinions to have,
They need not be foolishly strong
And to quarrel and fight
Over what we think right
Is, You know, and I know, quite wrong!
Clou-ley's Ghost Story.
It is a sin to steal a pin,
As well as any greater thing,
sang little Al Smith, in a loud,-shrill
"Very good sentiment, but very poor

father was a poet), patting the singer's
flaxen head in a patronizing manner.
"Talking of stealing," said Charley
Bennet, dropping the pumpkin he was
turning into a lantern, "did I ever tell
you fellers about the time I went down
to old Pop Robins' to steal apples, and
came back past the barn where the
horse-thief hung himself years and years
ago, 'cause he knew the constables—
they called 'em constables in those
times—were after him, and that he'd be
hung by somebody else if he didn't?
No? Here's a ghost story for you then,
and I hope it will be a warning to you
all never to take anything that doesn't
belong to you, 'specially apples.
"You see, Billy Evans and I were
staying with our folks at the hotel in
Bramblewood that summer, and about
two miles away was Pop Robins' farm.
He used to bring eggs and chickens
and vegetables and fruit to the hotel
and, oh my(wasn't he stingy? You'd
better believe it. He wouldn't even
give you two or three blackberries, and
if you asked him for an apple he'd
tremble all over. A regular old miser
he was, with lots of money and a bully
apple orchard. Let's go there some
night and help ourselves,' says Billy
Evans, one day. 'Bogs,'says I. 'Only
one,' says he I know him, and so do
you—old Snaggletooth I gave him al
most all the meat we took for crab bait
the day wo didn't catch any.' 'All right,'
"But when the night we'd agreed on
came Billy had cousins—girls—down
from New York, and he had to stay
home and entertain them. I don't care
much for girls myself, and I was afraid
they might want me to help entertain
them, too, so I made up my mind to go
down to Pop Robins' alone. It was a
splendid night the moon shone so
bright that it was almost as bright as
day. I scudded along, whistling away,
until I got within half a mile of theface.
orchard, and then I stopped my noise
and walked as softly as possible till I
came to the first apple tree. I shinned
up that tree in a jiffy (old Snaggletooth
didn't put in an appearance),filledmy
bag with jolly fat apples, and slid down
again. But when I came to lift the bag
up on my shoulder I found it was awful
heavy to carry so far, and I was just
u-going to dump some of the apples out
when I remembered all of a sudden
that if I cut across the meadow to the
plank a.l I could get back to the hotel
in a little more than half the time \t
would take to go the way I came.
So I shouldered my load, and wasbreak
nearly across the meadow before I
thought of the haunted barn at the*end
of it. It wasn't a nice thing to re-the
member but I wasn't agoing to turn
back, ghost or no ghost, and I tried to
whistle again, when, all at once, that
thing Al Smith was singing just now
popped into my head, and says I to my
self, 'That's so, Charles F.Bennet you
and your chums may think it's great fun
to help yourselves to other people's ap
ples and watermelons and such thing?,
but it's just as much stealing as though
you went into a man's house and stole
his coat.' It doesn't seem as bad when
you're going for 'em, but when you're
coming back, up a lonely road, all alone,
at 10 o'clock at night, a lot of stolen ap
ples on your back, and a haunted barn
not far off, it seems worse.
"All the same I held on to the apples.
And when I faced thebarn I determined
I'd whistle if I died in the attempt but,
boys, I don't believe anybody could

jumped when I passed the tumble-down
old place but it stood stiil when, as I
marched up the plank-road, I heard a
step behind me. I wheeled around in
au instant, but there was nothing to be
seenI 'I must have imagined it,' says
I to myself, and I walked a little faster,
listening with all my might, and, sure
enough, pat, pat, came the step after
me. Again I wheeled round. Not a
thing did I see. And again I started
I on, the apples growing heavier and
heavier. Pat, pat, pat, came the step.
It wasn't bike a human step. That made
it more dreadful. It must bethe ghost,'
I thought and I don't mind telling
you, fellers, I never was so frightened
in my life. The time I fell overboard
was nothing to it. I made up my mind,
when I reached the bridge that crossed
Loi a little brook near our hotel, I'd streak
it (I hadn't exactly run yet, for I was
saving my strength till the last). But,
before I got to the bridge, says I to
myself—and I must have said it out
loud, though I didn't mean to—'Per
haps he wants the apples.'
"'ApplesP repeated a hoarse voice,
with a horrid laugh.
"I tell you,boys, those apples flew,
and I flew, too. Over the bridgeI went

feet. 'There it is,'says Barney, roar

up at me, nodded its shining black
head, croaked 'ApplesI' and walked off.
It had followed me from the barn, and

A Remarkable Beast-tamer.
te, 8*,range stories come from India of the
feats performed by a native mesmerizer
named Buni, whose magnetic powers ap
pear to be found quite irresistable by the
lower animals, upon which he exclusive
ly exerts it. He gives seances to which
$e. public are invited to bring all man
ner of ferocious and untamable wild
beasts, and hold them with his glittering
eye. In a few seconds they subside in a
condition of cataleptic stiffness,. from
which they can only be revivedby certain
passes which he solemnly executes with
his right hand. A snake in a state of vi-
olent irritation was brought to Bum by a
menagerie proprietor, inclosed in a wood
en cage. When deposited on the plat
form it was writhing and hissing fiercely.
Buni bent ever the cage and fixed his eye
upon its occupant, gently waving his
hand over the serpent's restless head. In
less than a minute the snake stretched
itself out, stiffened, and lay apparently
dead. Buni took it up and thrust sever
al needles into its body, but it gave no
sign of life. A few passes then restored
it to its former angry activity. Subse
quently a savage dog, held in a leash by
its owner, was brought in, and, at Bum's
command, let loose upon him. As it was
rushing toward him, bristling with fury,
he raised bis hand, and in a second the
fierce brute dropped as though stricken
by lightning. It seemed absolutely par
alyzed by some unknown agency and
was unable to move a muscle until re
leased from the magnetizer's spell by a
majestic wave ot the hand.

While the Hcavcn-born child
All meanly wrapt in the rude manger

Had doff her gaudy trim,
With ber great Master to sympathize
It was no season then for her
To wanton with the sun, her lusty paramour.
Onlv with speeches fair
She woes the gentle air
To hide her guilty front with innocent snow
And on ber naked shame,
Polutc with sinful blame,
The saintly veil of maiden wbite to throw,
Confounded that her Maker's eyes
Should look so near upon ber foul deformities'.
But He, ber fears to cease,

She strikes an universal peace through sea
No war, or battle's sound,
Was heard the world around

The hooked chariot stood,
Unstained with hostile blood
The trumpet spake not to the armed
And kings sat still with awful eye,
As if they surely knew their sovereign Lord
But peaceful was the night

AN INDIAN SLAVE.
A Carol in Prose About Marie, a Pacific
[By V. Savel'a, in the Argonaut.]
Many years ago it was the custom
quietly performed, for certain lawless
white men to go among the Eel River
Indians and steal the" children of the
tribe and carry them to be sold tor slaves
among families in other parts of the State.
I have seen the poor creatures, after they
had been driven like beasts before their
captors, with sore feet and sullen faces,
sitting alone, apparently hopeless and
apathetic. But who shall say beneath
that solid exterior there was not a hu-not

Two lustrums have passed since oue of
these raids resulted in the capture,
among others, of a girl from five or six
years old. With the characteristics of
her race, she possessed no beauty to soft
en the hearts of beholders, but, as
promised a sturdy frame, she was dispos
ed ot to a lawyer, who, in turn, presented
her to his wife to be trained as maid-of
all-work. She received the name of Ma
rie, and soon became a neat and deft
worker in all household ways. «I can
bear testimony te the immaculate neat
ness of her kitchen, and the snowy white
ness of the clothes that hung on wash
day from her line and also the quiet way
in which all of this labor was performed.
I knew Marie for many years, and I
never heard her speak but once or twice
in all that time. Her face always wore
the same look, and I have often wondered
if she thought at all. She went no place,
saw no company, and year after year,
with automatic precision, performed her
tasks. What mattered it to her if the
skies were ablaze with splendor, as thecult
sun, whose rays warmed her people ond
her native valley, went down in the
All about her the mountains rose, pine

raise her eyes to the rocking tree-tops, or

with the breath of flowers or sad with
their death-song. I have wondered if
she had no memories, no stirring of the
blood, no wild longings, no passionate
heart throbs, no yearnings if she were
content as she appeared, if she loved or
hated her owners, or if, to the same, she
were as she appeared. Sometimes she
would raise her eyes to my face with a
look I could not define, but it passed so
quickly that I doubted if I had seen it

she stirred no new thoughts on our pait

owner lived enlarged, it had the ambition

curate. The man sent to this place was a

to make his people better, and worked
faithfully among his charge, always giv

This man had an Indian in his employ

like all his race, was not easily impressed
and, if, things touched the deep places

the workings within. It happened, if
things ever happen in this world that
Pedro and Marie met, and, though no
one ever knew how, they soon developed
into intimcey. This intimacy in time
became love, and they planned to marry
and pass through the world together. I

Marie was so much a slave that she
had no idea ot leaving her mistress or
organizing a home of her own without
that mistress's consent. It will never be
known what mental struggles she passed
through before she told her desires and
asked permission to wed Pedro. No
doubt astonishment was the first feeling

The winter merged into April showers,
the grass grew green and rank in the
valleys, and on the hills the cattle lay
in the sunshine. Then gradually the
faded and the yellow mantle of
summer shadowed through the blue,
quivering air. The grain fields swayed
before the hot wind, and even the far
away pines seemed to droop. Everybody
complained of the heat—every body
but Mane. She never complained or
changed her monotonous round.
But one morning she did not come
down to her task, and the mistress crept
up the narrow stairway to ascertain why
her repeated calls were not answered.
The room was neat and orderly, and on
the bed Marie lay—dead. Beside her
was the knife with which she had taken
her own life. She lay as if asleep, show
ing even in death no trace of the deep
despair that must have nerved her to do
the awful deed. Some compunctious
stirrings moved the hearts of those who
hadcaused this bondwoman to seek this
release from her woes but the principal
feeling was one of regret that a well

The Ruffianism of Old Dublin.
Tradition tells how Fightiug Fitz
gerald, an exquisite and duelist of the
last century, dealt with the "bucks," a
plague then infesting the streets of Dub
lin, and, indeed, the streets of every
town in Ireland. These "bucks" were
half-bred young fellows of some means
and high animal spirits, whose sole oc
cupation consisted iu making town-life
intolerable to quiet people. Parliament
was more than once compelled to frame
penal enactments with the view of re
straining their peculiar ruffianism but,
there was no properly-constituted po
lice to enforce them, these statutes were
of small effect.
Among the tricks of the Dublin buck
was this: One of them would take his
stand in the middle of a crossing on a
dirty day, and, drawing his sword,
thrust everybody who wanted to pass
into the mud. It was a common thing
to see half a dozen or more of these un
pleasant sentries lining a leading thor
oughfare all ready to afford each other
support. Nor were they content with
merely obstructing the passage. They
knocked off hats, ripped np garments
and pricked the limbs of the wearers
with the points of their weapons, and
broke ribald jests on them the while—
to the vast amusement of the ragamuf
fins who used to collect in the vicinity.
If any one turned on one of these bul
lies the rest would rush up and form a
circle round him then, seizing him by
the collar and the arms, they would
prick him about the legs until they con
sidered him punished sufficiently.
Fitzgerald proposed to some of his

Since 1867, no reliable map of this State has
been published, while population, railway,
postoflices and all material interests have
been multiplying in Minnesota. It is therefore
an announcement of real moment to state
that the St. Paul Book and Stationary com
pany will, on June 1, proximo, issue to snb
criberaonly, an elegantly mounted map of
theState,with adjanceneies in Wisconsin.Dako
ta. etc. This map will be five by six lcet in
size, upon a scale of six miles to the inch,
and will he sold at the low price of $10 each.
It will give all railway lines built and projected,
every new station and postollice, every feature
of topography, the cempletcst possible view
of the lakes and water courses—even showing
log dams—all compiled from latest surveys
and explorations, as well as from every prac
ticable source of local specific information.
The map must prove of immense value, and
will unquestionably be adopted as a standard
authority. Applications of parties desiring to
