Oa-i cay I tew him srr,ile, and I had tj go to dim. lie slapped me on tbe back, and sa d, in his broad Irish brogue, "You ought to have seen nie lay them out, oue afer tae other, as fast as they ceme up; five of them, aaa every one as wild as ibe devil himself. And I punched tbtm, and put tbem sound as e : p. so that tbev suored, they did, jis sir. O, it was beautiful! But then, ju?t is I was laughing and feeling- good, a brute Mexican stole up behind me like a hellish cat, and stabbed me in the back. It laid me out, but, say, you know it was me feelings that was hurt a sight more than me back. Bah! to be stab bed in tbe back, when I was doing- them so lovely! I could have cried." Tom had been in a drunken fight with Mex icans in a saloon, and bad spent the night in jail. O&e day after dinner was over, the boys were sitting around swapping l.es. Tom said little. An old engineer told of his run with the manager's Boecial one dark, stormy night, when h s engiae had ignored the absence of a high trestle, aad, never even breath ing hard, had taken the rails on the further side of the gorge, to go serene ly on its way after a terrible leap of fifty-one feet at full speed. A fireman told of his awful run through a lowest fire, when he burned his tender, trucks and all, in the eogine furnace, after his wood and coal gave out, bt cause h-; couldo't stop for fuel. Finally after lie whole circle bad pulled at the mystery pipe, they tot t of waited for Tom to speak. Tim a -ways had a good story, to top oil on, as tbe boys sa-d. Tom baa a dreamy, far-away look in his eyes. He b.t bis pipe bo hard I wts afra d it would crack ;and be puffed atd puffed. Tben out came the pit-e. "Boys, jou see that bird on toe f. n e out thereVTbis is my little girl's bit t . day; May's dead, you know, feu -years." The smile d.ed away from al. the faces around hiT, and not a word was spoken. Tom broke the silence. "That's a butcher bird. Little May wts so sick, and she had a pretty canary in a cage in her room. The caaary was time, and ooe dy I let th-s ch 1J tako it in her hind. How coull I know the was dying, damn it?" he asked savage ly. Tom was not often this way; I lov ed him so. And ;o ewetr seemed to soo'.he him, so that 1 know it wesn'i counted again t him. A V'iff, anothi r, and t'om went oa. "Just teen she d eu. and herjitt e hani openei out- wi e and closed uptight. The carary git away, and sat chirruping in the w.n dow sill. And 1 don't ste to he couid do it, when lhe pretty oue was uea'J there. Just as 1 looked up, one of these cursed, black bearied uevils if butcher birds came aljcg ana cut olf tbe litt;e canary's heaJ, clean I w so mad I was that, dumb, ani nursiin . It was rucb a m an insult to the dead one. Ana i ow. saia ion, as uu pu.- ied out his gun, "I will make tba: sas; murderer on tt.e fence eat a lor-tv-tive. See him lly to pieces There won't bj enough of him left to show there ever was one. hut you see niiu, boys. Ai-h! the brute:" And at ti t last word he pulled tne irigger, and his catiary was avenged. After a ei.ence following mis extii- bitiou, Tom again b-g;iu to optn bis neart to us. l Jove p ras u a nowers now, most oi a ytning in tne worm 6iuC3 the ciild went away. I listd her room up after tb dud as 1 know s&e would have wanted V. 1 ttrung vines and grtea things all ovtr tue pla'-'f , and had a garden in the kitchen siove in tbe summer time. 1 bad to give up the other room and take a boarder, too, but I went on letting loose. 1 got birds and let tbem fly loose all over the rot.m. They bad a place at table with us, the Utile bugifers, ana tney usea to kiss us good nigbt." Tom chuckled siher.i called it, unt.l bis dimples danced. Mv Dardner used to say, 'What the devil do you want with all these damn weeds?' Weeds, he called me pretty flowers, weeds! Why, the man had no soul. But 1 had to give it up. I took a little trip to Egypt and then to Hon olulu. There I had a wbo:e tra-dtn to meself, and I used to lay so long un der the big trees studying the prettj birds and watching them getting mar ried that I cot bred. I had a w holt- collection then of fluffed birds a- d flowers, but I had to sell it to get home Snow Balling. About one young woman in ten nowa days would dare to run out bare headed and bare hand ed and frolic and snow ball in midwinter. They have to be muffled up like hot-house flowers before they dare ven ture out in se vere weather, and even then would shudder at the thought of rollicking in the snow as their grand mothers did. The trouble lies in the fact that too few Women enjoy perfect health and strength of the special womanly organism. A wom an who is not well and strong locally can hot enoy good general health. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription cures all weakness and disease of the delicate and important organs concerned in wifehood and mother hood. It is the most perfect and scientific remedy ever devised for the peculiar ail ments of women. It restores womanly power, strength and virility. It tones and builds up the nerves which have been shat tered by suffering and disease. It corrects all irregularities and derangements and stops exhanstinir drains. It restores weak, nervous invalids to perfect health. It is intended for this ona class of disorders and is good for no other. It is the discovery of Dr. R. V. Pierce, for thirty years chief con sulting physician to the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute, at Buffalo, N. Y. No other known medicine can take its place. " I have been troubled with female weakness that ray physician called caturrh of the womb," writes Miss Tean Conner, of Catfish, Clarion Co., Pa. 44 1 doctored for it and did not get better. At last I commenced taking Or. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. 1 Rot better right along and when I had taken four bottles was cured. I recom mended the 4 Favorite Prescription to a friend of mine. She has been using it and thinks it is wonderful." Constipation is a little illness that if neglected builds a big one. Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets cure constipation. One little " Pellet " is a gentle laxative and two a mild cathartic. They never gripe. fi2S? mm w I Mm THE NEW PAVILION AT RAND'S GROVE.

It has now been in force there three months, and from the inquiries that sre every dy com ing to the superintendent of police,it is probable that its spread over the state will be rapid.

The limit of grace was eight o'clock in the winter, but since the present month came in an hour more is allowed. But it seems a little hard that while the lads and lassies must submit to this restraint, they are to be deprived of the poetry that formerly attended it. The curfew no longer "tolls the knell of parting day," but announces the fact by the "toot!" "toot!" of a factory whistle. Boston Transcript. Millions Given Away.
