FARMERS Taylor and Bill ings. who had lived neighbors to each other for fifteen long years, had always known that the line fence separating their farms was about a foot or two out of the way, but they bad been too sensible to care who was favored. It was a poor rail fence at best, zig zagging across the pastures like a tipsy man going along, and the few inches of soil in dispute were over grown with thistles and blackberry bushes. Things changed, however, when Ryder, the broker, and Sanders, the contractor, bought the two farms .overlooking the bay for summer cot tage*. The services of a surveyor were called in and each man stood on his rights. When the surveyor found that the true line took In eleven inches more of the contractor's land, the broker said that settled it. It didn't, however. The contractor scut a lawyer to the county seal to delve among the archives and fish up rusty documents, determining to con tinue the fight any number of years to prove that the surveyor was wrong. While the contractor was planning, as contractors will, the broker was acting, as brokers do. In the terms of the Street, he sold Mr. Saunders out and had closed liis acount. In plain English, lie had that fence moved over to give him the eleven inches due. Two days later the con tractor had it moved back. It w.:B moving time thereafter for two weeks. Five times in all was that fence moved exactly eleven Inches to the west, and five times did it go back eleven Inches to the cast. Then the movers rested, but only to get a better hold. While they were drawing (heir belts a notch tighter, two new actors ap peared on the scene. One of these was a good-looking girl named Sallie Saun ders, only daughter of the contractor, and the other was av, ell-set-up young man named Harold Ryder, only son of the broker. Young Ryder was home for his ra cation, and Sallie Saunders had come home because Vassar had a vacation, too. Of course each one heard of that line fence before they had been home on hour, and of course each one was loyal and indignant. \ “As dad is busy in Wad street, I'll just take this quarrel oa my own shoulders,” observed Harold, who was a member of a football team and Joyed in kicking down fences of every sort and kind. “When that scoundrel finds that he has got me to deal with Instead of poor old dad. who is for peace at any price, there will be no more moving, unless he moves to wards Hie hospital." “It is the most outrageous thing I ever heard of!" exclaimed the girl from Vassar when she had heard the story. “I have always thought papa wa9 a fighter, but it seems that he has bowed his head and been walked or. without shedding a drop of blood. Well, things will be different, now I m home, thank goodness!” Next day the newcomers went out to view the scene ot slaughter. As they didu't happen to po at the same hour no one was killed or wounded. The fence still rested on disputed ground. “•That fellow Saunders has made his Muff and quit?’ observed young Ryder s he strolled back home. Fate waited three days longer. Then Harold was told that the Saunders force* were skulking around, and he worked up his muscle and cut across lots for the fence. At almost the same moment Miss Kallie beard a rumor that "old Ryder’s men" were going to give the fence a pew boost, and she dapped on her frilled sunbonnet and made tracks. She was not even armed with a bodkin when she arrived at the scene of hostilities, and came face to face with a young man sitting on the fence in dispute, and puffing away at a meerschaum. She halted. The young man stared, raised his hat. and stammered: "Good—good-morning. Are you look ing for someone?" •• —Yes." was the panting reply. "I heard that horrid Mr. Ryder was going to move our fence again, and 1 _ I —well. I just won't allow it." "And I heard." said the young man. who had the advantage of position, being on the top rail, "that that fel low Saunders, whoever he is. was coming out here to take things into his own hands, and 1 want a chance at him and his gang." -You said ’that follow:’" exclaimed Miss Sallie, as her eyes flashed and her cheeks grew redder. • Aud you said that horrid Ryder:’ " replied Harold, as he slowly dropped off the fence. "Mr. Saunders is ray father!” "And Mr. Ryder is mine:" They stood staring at each other for a moment, and then began to smile. The smile L-d become a good-natured 'laugh when Harold agiin lifted his hat and said: "Beg pardon. Miss Saunders." "And I'm sure I also apologize, Mr. Ryder." •*I did not know—know " "Nor I. either.” “And now that both of us do know, TOWtR IN LIAOVANG, WHERE THE MOST DESPERATE FIGHTING OCCURRED The tower of I.iaoyang was the center of the most desperate fighting ever recorded in the history of the world. Here for eight days the battle raged with 200.000 Russians determined to hold the Chinese stronghold. The tower is outside the walls of the city and is used for religious purposes. let us both sit down and talk things over. There is a dispute about eleven inches of ground. I believe?” "So I have heard. Your father con tends that It is his land ” “While your father naturally con tends that it is his. Very foolish. Miss Saunders—very foolish. The land isn't wortli the cost of moving the fence over once. It seems as if I had seen you at one of our ‘proms' ” “Yes.” “Wonder why I wasn’t introduced? Some fellows are so stingy, don't you know!” And then they began to talk nbont college life and the theater and new liooks, and the line fence zigzagged its way forgotten. They had been talking for an hour when the girl suddenly rose up with a laugh: “Dear me. but what will mother say? She will think I have been mur dered on account of the fence.” “Oh. yes, the fence,” replied Harold, as he scowled at it. "Miss Saunders, l think we should take the fence ques tion out of the hands of our respective fathers.” “But why " “Because I think we can settle it to our mutual satisfaction. You see, a fence is neither a ‘put' nor call,’ nor 3et a building in course of construc tion. It wants to be dealt with from an entirely different standpoint. I shall ask my governor to turn the matter over to me, and you ask your governor to do the same, and ” “I certainly must go at once,” she interrupted. “And then I shall hope to have an invitation to call—and we will talk— and ” But Sallie had fled. Her going, however, did not affect results. The summer cottage, which was a Joint wedding gift from two delighted fathers, stands squarely on the disputed territory.—lndianapolis Sun. LIKE HIS FATHER. Gen. Fred Grant Strongly Resembles the Hero of Appomattox, General Fred Grant grows dally more like his father. He has the same stockly frame, the same blunt manner. He is just ns unassuming as his father was. and he has much the same quiet common sense. He talks but little, but, once started, his words are full of meat, and his experiences have been such that he views the world in the broad. He is like his father in his fondness for military life. His father was his hero, and it was at his own re quest that General Grant took him as a boy of 12 to the battlefield, and later on sent him to West Point.

Bn 3 tle Fred was with his father during a great part of the war. He took part in five great battles, was twice shot and had many narrow escapes. He was on the flagship of Admiral Porter when the boats ran the batteries at Vicksburg, and he whs wounded during the Vicksburg campaign. His wound was in the leg. It was only a flesh wound, but his leg is still paralyzed where the bullet struck. He thought at first that he was killed, and upon his showing his wouud to one of the officers the officer told him to move his toes. Tins he did. Whereupon the officer said he was not badly hurt. Young Grant thereupon wrapped a cloth about his leg and remained in his saddle until the battle was over. After his graduation at West Point GES. FREDERICK DEN r GRANT.

Georgia Kelitor Crgea Another lteisn of Terror. In a lending editorial in the Atlanta News John Temple Graves advocates lynching and also revival of kukluxism in order to terrorize negroes. Mr. Graves says iu part: "The white men of this southern coun try will protect their women, and neith er law, nor statutes, nor public opiniou. nor armed forces, nor federal courts, nor any other courts, will prevent. There is no need to try to scare the people of this southern country with the threat of the federal court. If the federal court invades the State’s authority and takes charge of these cases there yet remain the memory and the renaissance of the kuklux klan, which was. perhaps, after ail, the most effective agency that this southern country has ever known against the ijime and lawlessness that followed a period of war. Even this* may not en tirely accomplish its work of reform, but it will, if anything will or if any thing can. and this appeal to the super stitious terrors of the criminal classes must not be left untried.” VESUVIUS IS ACTIVE.
