RAVED BY A BADG.
A STORY THAT WILL INTEREST ALL
COLLEGE MEN.

Emblem rsn Seen by Oa. Whou Knew It.
The sixtieth aluiia.l dinner of Gam
ma Beta ias (z j.%y :. gr, at sutcesI
At the long t le s1k 1: guests, of all
ages and from all .rt.. Of the land.
The feast was end Ii when the captaini
arose from his paie itar the hiad of
the board. Straight ok figure and Ilert
(f eye, he bore his 0l years lijhtly.
Boys," says the cpltait, I haven't
been to a (,ammta It, to dintr for 40
years. The last time I went I was a boy
in college. As I look around me I ait
glad I ati not the ihiest alumnis here,
for I feel as young as any freshman.
But I camte here titnight to tell vi u a
story, and if you have patience to hi ar
me I may as well begin. Ietni ttuber,
we old ones are garrulous at times and
stop me when you have ha1i enough."
His audience was all attention, and
the captain lighted a fresh cigar, blew'
out a puff of smoke and began.
"I was the first northern man to
plant cotton in Arkansas after the war.
The state had declared for the Union
early in 1.04, but there was plenty of
lawlm seceasionism about, and a north
wrner's life and property were none too
ade. Before I had been long at my
planting I got a notice from some of my
secessionist friends that I must stop op
eratlons or leave the district if I had
any regard for any life-in short, they
gave me to understand that if they
caught me they would string me up to
the nearest tree as sure as my name was
Jim Roberts. Now, I didn't ante nd to
stop planting, and I didn't intend to be
hanged, so I went ahead and told them
they could hang me-if they could catch
"About a month after that I was rid
ing across country one afterniwu to get
a little'¶usiuess done in the nearest
town. As I enttred a lonely pit-ce of
road a dozen mlen jumped out of the
woods, pointed their guns at my head
and ordered me to halt atd dismount.
I saw I could do nothing but surrender
at discretion, so I came down from my
bose and was marched off in silence.
hI a few minutes we turned into a lane
that led deeper into the woods and kept
an until we camue to a little clearing
One of my friends brought out a rope.,
stung one end of it over the limb of a
convenient tree and had the other end
dipknotted around my neck in a jiffy.
"Probably none of you has ever felt a
hangman's rope around his neck, so you
mn't appreciate the state of my feelings
at that time. I'll tell you. I felt rretty
serious and thought my lease of life hail
tma out for certain. But a moan clings
b life at suuh times, and all at once I
had a happy thought. I remembered
that I had a package of excell-tit cigars
In my pocket, and I drew it out.
"'Gentlemen,' I said, with as much
soolness as I could mnster. I know
that I have but a few minutes more to
bve. I want to ask one favor. (jive m""
lime to smoke out a cigar before you
swing me into eternity. Will you join
me? You will find them most excel
lent.'
",My captors grimly assented, and we
lhted our weeds' together. No one
rid a word. Well, boys, I made that
cigar bold out, you may depend. But it
would burn. Littli by little the ash be
gan to get longer and drop off until
there was just so much left." And the
captain held up his smoking stump,
measuring its small remainder critical
4 with his finger.
" 'Well,' thought I to myself, here
goes for a few more puffs anyway.
and I was just getting the very last of
them when we heard a horse coming
through the treei A fine looking fellow
rode up. whoi-' nod to h. a ,. rt If
commander of th- <ompany. Hello,
boys!' he called out. 'wbo've you got
here?' We' ve got Roberts, and wt 're
gong to hang him,' saul they. 'All
right,' said the officer and canne over to
have a look at me.
"Now, I had on my watch chain this
little badge here, and the captain
touchedi a jeweled monogram of gold
that hung to his breast. "I have always
worn it there andsx pect to as long as I
live. My coat was'' m. , and as the Con
federate came up his eye caught the
badge. Well, sirs, he turned all sorts of
colors, and leaning close to my ear
whispered the name of our fraternity,
at the same time grasping my hand with
the good old Gamma grip, given with
he strength of a giant. Then he turned
to his men. 'Boys,' said he, 'this man
is my friend. You must let him go.'
And in an instant he took the rope from
my neck, led up my horn, pulled a pair
ot pistols from his pocket and handed
one to me. 'Now, brother,' -aid he, 'do
Agd yourself and get away as best you
conl' I lost no time in following his ad
vice and made my i scape. And here I
am today, and that is alL "
There was a storm of applause when
de captain had finished and had takem
Ms seat
"Hat, captain, " cried more than one,
"you'll have to finish the story. Who
was lbs man that got you free, and did
you ever see him again?"
The captain arose again, smiling.
"Whowas he? Well, be helonged to one
of our southern chapters. And did I
ever -se him again? Yes, I did."
The captain laid his hand on the
dhouldsr of an Ilderly man in tb- sec-t
Meet to him. "Yes, I can see him this

enrred to me that I had a hottle of

spoonful of this preparation in a little
water, and was able tii lie down without
coughing. In a few moments, I fell
asleep. and awoke in the morning
greatly refreshed and feeling much
better. I took a teaspoonful of the Ps-.
toral every night for a week, then grad
ually decreased the dose, and in two
weeks my cough was cured..d
