his broad Irish brogue, "You ought to

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

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.-

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

Mv Dardner used to say, 'What the
devil do you want with all these damn

flowers, weeds! Why, the man had no

a little trip to Egypt and then to Hon

Favorite Prescription cures all weakness

all irregularities and derangements and
stops exhanstinir drains. It restores weak,

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

city that inaugurated the revival of
t.bi.t ancient custom. It has now been
in force there three months, and from
the inquiries that sre every dy com

probable that its spread over the state
will be rapid. Jt is eaid to have
wrought a marvelous change for the
better in the peace and good order of
the neighborhood of whose disciplinary
machinery it is now sa conspicuous a
part. The limit of grace was eight
o'clock in the winter, but since the

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
