The ground was V.'rd with rotting upplo pomace, from j which arose tli<? odor that had reached Kent's | tlt ''Il(lie ! " raid the latter, •'Lent** htek ; tcrc ' 3 ricimcss ! Wo'vo succeeded beyond «or most sanguin® expectations, as the boy said who ran away •itool to catch niunotvs, and caught a duelling, a bad cold „.j a licking. V/o'vo struck an apple-jack «listillorv, and os they've been at work lately, theyVr'probably left cuoiigls somewhere tc .<ivc us cd that w;< ra:i drink." 0 \beV sigh was eloquent of a. disbelie f that , u „i, a consummation vus possible, short, of the blissful hereafter. Inside of one-of tlic cabin» they found a ■.till about the size of a tub, with a worm of similar small proportions, kept, cool by the iiiuv from the spring. Some tubs and barrels, in which the lees of cider were rapidly turning to vinegar, gave off n fruity, spirituous odor, but for awhile their eager search did not; dis cover a bit. of the distilled product:. At I ni Kent, with a cry of triumph, dragged freina n] ft cu of cunning concealment, a small jug, stoppeil with a corncob. Ho smeiled it him rq'ily. ° "Yes. hero is some. It's applejack, not a Week old and as rank as a major general. Phew! I can smell every stick they burned to distill it. Abe, wat en me clcseiy while I drink. 1 tnagnaniinonsiy take th.o lead, out of consideration for you. If I ain't dead in fivo minutes you try it,." "0, stop monkeying an i drink," was the impatient answer. Kent put the jug to hr; mouth and took a long draught. "Shade of old Father Noah, the first drunkard," ho raid, hh he wiped the tears from his eyes, "another ewig like that would pull out nil the rivets in my internai pipings. Heavens! it; went down like pulling a eat out of a hole by the tail, ihn afraid to wipe my mouth, lest my breath burn n hole in the sleeve of my blous o." Three-quarters of an hour Jeter the spirits in tlio jug were lowering and those in the men rising with unequal rapidity. Under fho in fluence of the fiery stimulant, Kant's sanguiuo temperament boded and bubbled over. Im agination painted the present and future in hues of dazzling radiance. Everything was as delightful as it could lx» now, und would become more charming us time rolled on. But with Abo Holton drinking tended to de velop morosßiu.-s« into savagery. "All, comfort mo with applejack, and slay aio with «lagons of it!" said Kent Edwards, setting clown tho jug with the circumspection of nman not yet too drunk to suspect that ho b losing exact control of his legs mid arms. "That goto better tho deeper clown you go. First it was like swallowing a chestnut bur; now, old hard made Bourbon couldn't bo smoother." "A man enu got used to a'niost anything," raid Bolton. "I get gladder evc.-y day, Abe, that I came into the army. I wouldn't ha ve missed all this cxpprirnco for tho finest farm in tho Miami valley. 'Twere worth ten years of peaceful life T»> soldier half a day. Sir Walter Scott says—as I Improve him." "'Specially one of them soaking days when we were marching through the mud to Wild cat." "0, those were just thrown in to mai::! us appreciate good weather when w e have it. Otherwise wo wouldn't. You know what tho "oug says: Fcr spring would be but gloomy weather, If we had nothing else but spring. "IV ell, for my part, ono o' them days was enough to pi-on nix mouths o' sunshine.

"if you shoot with your hands wobbling that way you'll make him au full of holt dominer. That'd bo cruel. S'cadv up a iittle, wliiio I talk i„ him. ' " ''Hull there !" commanded Iv thick tongue. "Who ai - are with you!" "I'm u Union man," said Fort he, "ini' I'm alone." "Lay down your gun and come up hero if you are a friend," ordered Kent. The swaggering imperiousness in Edwards' tone» nettled Fortner as much us t he order it self. T don't make a practice of lavin' down my gun fur no man," he said proudly. ' I'm oz good Union ea ary of you 'uns dar he, an' I don't take no orders from ve. f could-'ve killed ye Loth of I'd a-wanted ter afore ve over seed me." Bolton's gun cracked, and the bullet buried itself in the thick, soft bark of the chestnut, just above Fortner's head, mid threw dust and chips in his eyes. II« brushed them away angrily and instinctively raised bis rillo. Kent took this as his cue to fire, but his aim was oven worse than Alto's. "Ruined again by strong drink," be mut tered despairingly, as he saw tho failure of his shot. "Nothing but new applejack could make me miss so fuir a mark." "Now, yo fellers, lay down yoro gunsl" shouted Fortner, springing forward to where they were with his rifle cocked. "Lay 'em down ! I say. Lay 'em down, or 1 11 let day light through yo!" < # i i ^ Jr //X. -m Mr. t S Ja • V J® -ft A >' tf'sT, & 'Ll Jk \ u W'M "Now j/c /filers, lu y tluwu yore ijuus!" "He's got ii«, Abt'." said Kent, laying tlown Ilia tmisket relurtaiitly. His example was fol lowed by Abu, who, however, did not place his gun so far that ha could not readily pick it tip again, it Fortner gave hint an instant's opportunity. Fortner noticed this and pushed tho musket farther away with his foot, still covering the two with his rifle. "Yo see now," he .said, "lint 1 hev yo ut my uuircy, of 1 wanted to kill or captura ye. Ef I gin yo back y or guns, yo il admit tliot I'm vor friend, and not ycr inimy, won't ye?" "It'll certainly look like an overture to a permanent and disinterested friendship," said Kent, brightening up; and Abe, v.ho was gathering himself up for a spring to eatch Fortner's rifle, let his muscles relax again. "Well, yo kin take up ycr guns agin and load 'em," said Fortner, letting down tho hammer of his rifle. "I'm Jim Fortner, :mp posed ter be the pizenest Union man on tho Itoekassel !

"Scotch snuff," an swered Old Hurricane, very sentent iously; "Scotch muff, my boy. Bring a little of it ever so near their noses and they'll sneeze their lids off." "I know a gen ius." observed Meister Karl, "who has a better plan than that. Ho spreads the oyster: in a circle, seats himself in tiie center, and begins spinning a yam. Sometimes it's an adventure in Mexico, sometimes a legend of bis loves, some times a marvelous stock operation in Wall street. As lie proceeds, the 'natives' get interested; one by «no they gape with astonishment at the tremendous and direful whoppers which arc pouted forth. Then, us they open their mouths my friend whips 'em out, peppers 'em and swallows 'em." "That'll d said Star light, with a long sigh; "I wish we had a bushel of 'em ben: now—they'd open easy !'

He can go into eastern Ore gon anil shoot prairio chickens, and (ish to his heart's content. Within two hours' travel of the metropolis of the north Pacific coast he can shoot within twenty four horns elk, hear, panther, deer grouse, pheasant, geese, quail, pigeon, mallard, duck, widgeon, canvasback, evay duck, blnobill, and snipe, besides swan and sand hill crane.— Portland Ore gonian.
