3 MULVANEY'S TALE.
My friend Private Mulvaney told me
this, sitting on the parapet, when we were
hooting butteriiies together. Ho had
theories about the army and colored clay
pipes perfectly. He said that the young
soldier is the best to work with, "on ac
count ay tho surpassin innoclnse ay tbo
•MM."
"Kow, listen!" said Mulvaney, tkrow
lng.hlmsolf full length on the wall in the
sun. "I'm a born soutt ay the barrick

"Did ye ivcr hear how Prlvit Mulvaney
tuk tho town ay Lungtungpen? I thought
not! 'Twos tho lift'nint got tho credit,
but 'twas mc planned the schamc. A lit
tle before I was inviluded from Burma me
an four an twinty young wans undhcr a
Lift'nint Brazenose, was rulnin our ui
jeshina thryin to catch docoits. An such
double ended divils I nlver knew! 'Tis
only a doh on a Snider that makes a
dacoit. Widottt thim he's o paceful culti

an wo hunted, an tuk fever an elephinta
now an again, but no docoits. Evcnsbual
ly we puokarowed wan man. 'Troie liim

•Way into tbe jungle, wid the Burmese In

him to the clanin red, on he comminst to
Jabber, the interprut'r interprutln in hc
tweens, an mo helpin tho Intelligence de
partment wid my clanin rod whin tho
man misromimhered.
"Prlsintly I learnt that acrost tho river,
•bout nine miles away, was a town just
dbrippin wid dabs an bohs an arrows an
daooits an elephints an jinglos. 'Good!'
sez I. 'This otfioe will now close.'
"That night I went to the lift'nint nn
communicates my information. I never
thought much of Lift'nint Brazenose till
that night. Ho was shtlff win books an
tbeonrles, an all manner ov thrlinmln'a
no manner ay use. 'Town did ye say?' sez
he. 'Acoordln to tbo theourles ay war,
we shod wait for re-enforoemints.' 'Faith!'
thinks I, 'we'd betther dig our graves
thin,'for tbe noarest throops was up to
their shtocks in the marshes out Mimbu
way. 'But,' says the lift'nint, 'sinco 'tisa
speshll case. I'll make an execpshin. We'll
Tisit this Lungtungpen tonight.'
"The bhoys was fairly woild wid de
lolgbt whin I totild 'em, an, by this nn
that, tbey wlnt through the jungle liko
buck rabbits. About midnight we come
to the shtrama which I had clone forgot to

Wid four bhoys, an I thought that tbo iift

"We got nn ould tree trunk an pushed
off wld tho kits nn the rillus on it. Tje
night was chokln dhark, an just as vo
was fairly embarked I heard tho lift'nint

not a yard from tho bank.
" 'Bit ay nnullab! Bit ay nn esbtuary!'
sex the lift'nint. 'Go on, ye mad Irish

on tbe bhoys begun shtrippin an rollin a

So me nn Conolly shtruck ou - . through the

"ftvenshually we hit ground—a bit uv
sand —an a man. I put my heel on the
back ay him. He skreeohed an ran.
"'Now we've done it!' soz Lift'nint
Brazenose. 'Where tho divil is Lungtung
pen?' There *vas about a minute an a half
to wait. Tho bhoys laid a-bould ay their
rifles an some tbriod to put their belts or:.
We was roarchin wid fixed baynlts ay

Wld thlm mesein jingles nn suiders liko »

Into the shtrnme.
" 'Hovo you got your titles?' sez Bra.

that thief Mulvnney's for all my back pay,
an she'll kick my heart sick wid that
bluuderin long shtock ay hers.' 'Goon!'
yells Brazenose, whippin his sword out.
'Goon an take tlie town! An thu Lord

"Thin tho bhoys gave wan dlvostattn
howl an pranced into tho dhark, fet-lin for
the town, an bllndin an stiSiu like cav

their bare legs. I hammered tho butt

the rat come an hammered oontagioua,
while the jingles was jingling, an feroehus
jells from inside was shpllttin our ears.
Wo was too close under tbe wall for thlm
to hurt us.
"Evensbually, the thing, whatever ut
was, bruk, an the lis an twinty ay us
tumbled, wan afther tbe other, naked as
we was borruD, into the town of Lung
tungpen. There was a raeally ay a sump
shus kind for a whoile, but whether they
tuk us, all white an wet, for a new breed
ay divil, or a new kind ay daoolt. I don't
know. They ran as though we was both,
an we wlnt into thlm. baynlt an butt,
shrlekin wld laughin. There was torches
in the sbtiusts, an I saw little Orth'ris
rubbla his showlthor lvry time he loosed

walklu iuto the gang wld his sword, like
Diarmid ay the Goldon Collar—barring he
hadn't a stitch ay olothin on him. We dls
klvered elephinta wld daooits under their

"Thin wo bultod an formed up, the
Wttnmen howlin in the houses an Lift'nint

"'Number off from tho right!' sez tho
Uft'nlnt. 'Odd numbore fall out to dress.
Even numbers pathrol tho town till ro
lievod by the dressin party." Lot me toll
you, pathroUlh a town wld nothing on is
an expayrience. I pathrolled for tin min

The women laughed so. I nlver blushed
before or since, but I blushed all over my
carkiss thin. Orth'ris didn't pathrol. He
soz only, ' Portsmlth barrloks nn the 'ard

"When wo was all dressed, we oounted
tho dead—sivinty-foive docoits besides

an a lot ov other burglarious thruck. Not
a man ay us wns hurt—except may be tho

"The headman ay Lungtungpen, who
surrinder'd himself, asked the interprut'r,
'Ay tho English fight like that wid their

"Whin I was invalided for the dysent'ry
to Indio. I sez to the lift'nint, 'Sorr,' sez
1, 'you've tho making In you ay a great

shuk hands wid mo and soz: 'Hit high,

You've Been me waltzin through Lung

saints carry ut where ut shud go, for he
was o fine upstaudiu young orflcer.
"To reshume: Fwhat I've sold Just
Ehows tho use ay 8-year-olds. Wud 60
seasoned sodgers have taken Lungtungpen
In the dhark that way? No! They'd know
tho risk ay fuvar an chill, let alone tbo

So saying, Mulvaney took up his butter

David Livingstone and His Family.
The Janet Livingstone who diod in j
Edinburgh was a younger sistor of tho ex- I
plorer, ooming next to him in a family of
five. She had many quaint stories of
David's boyhood. Once, astat S, he staid
out beyond tho prescribed hours, and, re
turning home, found tbe door barred, this
being the punishment for tbo second
transgression of the kind. David mado
no fuss, and his father, when he opened
tho door somo time inter, found the young
hopeful sitting ou the doorstep munching
a penny loaf. "I'm having my supper,"
ho observed resignedly to his astonishod
parent. "Mother has shut me out."
Livingstone senior was as great a philos
opher as his sou. Uno day David brought
homo tho news that a heavy duty was to
bo put on tobacco. Noll Livingstone, who
was not a rich loan, was just lighting his
pipo as the news was broken. He put it
down unlit. "If we havo got to give it
up," he said, ' wo may as well begin
now." He never smoked again.—London

An Almost Incredible Story.
Mr. W. B. Suttle, at a moetiug at Roch
dale, England, told the following almost
Incredible story: "In a certain club a man
recently had a fit, and bets wore at once
made as to whether or not he would ro
sover. A doctor was sent for, but on the
ground thut his assistance would prejudice
tho chances of tho bettors, the doors wore
barred and he was kept outside." Mr.
Suttle declined to name the club publicly,
but it is said bo did so privately to tho
president of the society. A similar story is
told cf n fashionable Loudon club in tho
lust century.

ENVIRONS OF MUSCAT.
• Region of Horrible Smells, Favor Gorme
and Swarms of Flies.
The environs of Muscat are especially
Interesting. As soon as you issue out of
either of the two gates whioh are con
structed in the wall which shuts the town
off from the outer world you plunge at
onoe into a new and varied life. Just out
side the walls is the fish nnd provision
market, reeking with horrible smells and
alive with flies; hard by Is a stagnant pool
Into which is cast oil tho offal nnd filth of
this disgusting market. The water In tho
pool looks quite putrid, and when the
wind comes from this quarter no wonder
it is laden with fovor germs nnd mophitlo
vapors. Consequently Muscat is a most
unhealthy place, especially when tho at
mosphere is damp and rain has fallen to
■tir up the debrts.
Outside tho walls the sultan Is In tho
habit of distributing two meals a day to
the Indigent poor, and, Inasmuch ns tho
Omanes are by nature prouo to laziness,
there Is but littio doubt that his highnoss'
liberality Is greatly Imposed upon.
As you emergo, not unwillingly, from
this region of flies and smells, you come
ocross a series of villages built of roods
nnd palm branches nnd Inhabited by mem
bers of tho numerous nationalities who
come to Muscat in search of a livelihood.
Most of these are Bellooohees from the Mok
ran coast aud Africans from tho neighbor
hood of Zanzibar. Tho general appearnneo
of those villages is highly picturesque, but
squalid. Here and there palm trees, al
mond trees aud the übiquitous camel thorn
aro seen lutersporsed among tho houses;
womon In rod and yellow garments, with
turquoise rings in their ears nnd noses,
peep ot you furtively from behind thoir
flimsy doors, and as you proceed up tho
valley you And several towers constructed
to protect the gardens from Bedouin incur
sions, und a few comfortable littio villas
built by Banyan merchants, where they
can retire from tho heat and dust of Mus
cat.
The gardons are all cultivated by Irriga
tion nnd look surprisingly green and deli
cious lv oontrast with tho barren, arid
rocks which surround them. Tbe wells nra
dug deep in the center of the valley in the
bed of what elsewhere would bo a river
and are worked by a running slopo nnd
bullocks, whioh draw up and down skin
buckets; these empty themselves automat
ically into tanks connected with the chan
nels whioh convey the woter to the gardens.

"SOUL OF THE ARMY."
Antonio Jose de Sucre's Services In Aid
of Venezuelan Liberty.
Antonio Jose do Suore was called by
Bolivar "Soul of the Army," and to his
prowess ns a fighter tho liberator owed
much of his success. Ho wos born in Ven
ezuela in 1793. At tho beginning of tho
country's struggle for independenco ho
served on tho personol staff of General Mi
randa. Then Miranda's star sank. Suoro
joined Bolivar in 1814. Bolivar sent him
to the West Indies for aid for the revolu
tionists, and by pledging his personal cred
it be secured a large quuutity of ammuni
tion and 10.000 stondof arms. He was tbo
hero of the battle of Pichincha, which end
ed Spanish rule iv Ecuador.
He marched with Bolivar across the An
des, and it was his daring spirit and great
generalship that brought success to that
remarkable expedition. With 6,800 men
he met and defeated the Spanish with 9,300
men on the ploteou of Ayocucho, captur
ing the Spanish viceroy and breaking
Spanish rule in Peru. When the upper
Peruvian provinoes formed the state of
Bolivia, Suoro was placed at the head of
government, and it was at his requost that
Bolivar promulgated his code. He com
manded tbe Ecuador troops in tho war
with Peru nnd defeated tho Invaders.
He retired to private life in 1829, but
was elected president of tho Colombian
congress in 18S0. Returning to his homo
when congress adjourned, he was shot
from ambush and killed. His death was,
no doubt, tho work of his political ene
mies. His remains lie in tho Church of
San Francisco, iv Quito, although the gov
ernments of Venezuela and Bolivia havo
each asked the honor of oaring for his
dust.—New York Moil nnd Express.
Barristers* Wigs.
The most recent portion of a junior bar
rister's attiro is the wig and bos boen add
ed in comparatively modern times In tho
t.iiuo of Charles 11, when wigs wero first
introduced from abroad, the military men
and barristers helped to 6et tho fashion iv
all questions of mole attire. They wore
wigs in court varying with the fashions of
the hour, as long as wigs wore worn, and
when tho rest of the world gave them up
at tho end of the last century barristers
retained them and still do so ns v distinc
tive part of legal costume. In 1705 a peti
tion was presented to King George 111 by
tho master peruke makers, alleging that
their trado was falling uff, as wigs wero
going out of fashion, and that but for the
"counselors" (the old name for barristers/
thoy would soon havo no customers. They
prayed his majesty to devise some relief.
Tbo king returned a gracious nnswer.
Somo wag, however, struck by tho ludi
crous side of the petition, published a bo
gus petition from tho body carpenters Im
ploring his majesty to wenr a wooden leg
and to enjoin all his servants to appear in
tlie royal presence with tho same graceful
decoration. Tbo wigs now in use nt tho
bar are chiefly inado of goats' hair, aud aro
ornamented with throe rows of littio curls
going round the head aud closely fastened
to tho main structure and two little tails
behind, falling a littio below the collar.
Until BO years ago nearly nil the bar wigs
wore pomatumed and powdered, but this
fashion, for obvious reasons, has gradual
ly declined, and only a very few now favor
it.—Pall Mall Gazette.
Power of the Sun's Heat.
Architects and builders have long boon
aware of the fact that bridges and build
ings of all kinds expand iv summer and
contract in winter, but no scientific ob
servations were ever mado on that scoro
untii quite recently. Experiments made on
tall monuments in both this country aud
Europo during the beat of tho past suin
ruor show thot tho perpendicularity of
such structures is badly affected by the
rays of tho sun. At ono timo tho Washing
ton monument was found to lean nine
inches out of plumb. This peculiarity, it
was said, wos duo to the greater expansion
of the side upon which tho sun's rays fell.

The Home of Cholera,
Tho marshy ground of the Ganges delta,
with its vast, masses of vegetation decay
ing under n tropical sun, is the native
home of tho cholera. In thnt pestilential
region the cholera and plague are found
every year and all the year round. Every
cholera epidemic which has desolated Eu
rope, every visitation of tho plague, is bo
liovotl to have started from the mouth of
the Ganges.
