Ho met itcr l' Daley, tho actor, at tho Dowdoln Square- theater, ouo afternoon, with this result, as given In the Lost on Herald: "Say, I'ete," nked Mr. JcCferron sadly, 'have ou any Etar and dear relatives?" MA few," answered Dalley dreamily ns lie accepted a cigar which Mr. Jefferson thoughtlessly offered him. "Well, I have," said Jefferson, "and they're qulto near and very dear, especially one in particular. I've started this fellow lu business a dozen times, but It has al ways been with tho same result. No mat ter how much I udvnnced him, that is gcucrti ly tho least part of what I am called upon t pay. Ilo hasn't a thing to brug of exec t his check, and that would stop a 12 inch shell.

THE RED LANTERN. "Ob, pshaw, pop I What mada yon got a red one?" "Why, iny e;n, I thought a rod lan tern would ticklo yon to death." "Nuw," rctniued Jimmy, contemptu ously. "I wanted one with a grocu light They're twice as Lice." "Well, uow, that's strange," ea!d John launders, looking nt his boy's disappointed ace. "When I wa a youugstor, I liked anything if 'twas red a red wagon, Bled, top. As long as there was sonio red ubont it I thought 'twas Btylifch aud first class." "lcd is so coiumou," said Jimmy, with great airs. "Go 'long." euidthe futher. "Aren't yen ashamed, sir? That's the sort of airs yon learn from playing with boys that havo money at leat their fathers have, lied common. Well, so am I common; Bo'a your ma, and, for tho matter of that, bo are you, too, I reckon. Duu't forget that, Jimmy. You're the Bun of a laboring man. Duii't try to ape folks who are better oil in this world." Jimmy Saunders picked up tho do episcd lantern and wtut out to tho bam with it. His father had just returned from tho town with a fow purchases for the family unci among them this lantern, which was not up to Jimmy's ideas of lanterns, lie wanted ouo with a bright greoa light and nickel trimmings liko tho ouo used at Mr. Somers' stables. Charlio fc'omors said they were much nicer than red lantorus, which were common looking und culy csed by rail road men. Aud what Ch&rlie Somers faid was law to Jimmy Saunders. Charlio lived in Chicago during tho winter aud ouly f pent his vacations out in Indiana on his father's handsome couutry place. So, of course, being tho ecu of a rich man aud a dweller in the cities, his word had a great weight with tho boy who had never been farther away from tho farm than to the neigh boring town of Dexter. Mr. Saunders' farm lay next to tho railroad, which wound like a great shin ing serpeut through tho woods, tho deep cut beyond tho creek aud across the swamp and ou to Chicago, that wonder ful city of which Jimmy never tired of hearing Charlio' descriptions. Dut just now thcra was troublo in tho great cily mobs and Btrikes und i-oufn-6iou and chaos almost. L'very day tho boys could hear J.Ir. Somers speak of tho Btate of affairs to the gentlemen who were visiting him, and all agreed that thero were to bo terrible times tiulcss tho city was declared uuder martial law. Aud as the days weut on nnd rumors cf fkes and killing aud destruction float ed out through the quiet couutrysido Charlio and Jimmy both became greatly interested iu tho news and plied their fathers with questions about the great ttrike. "What did you hear i:i town today, father?" o.-ke J Jimmy, havirg recovered from his vexation ovtr tho red lantern, ns his father was unharnessing Zebedee, the old gray horse. "There's all sorts cf news the worst goings on in Chicagoevrr yon heard of," answered his father. "Aud Dexter, too, is full of n crowd that's threatening to bum tho depot. They've overturned a lot of freight cars nnd upset things gen erally arouud tho station. tl beard folks Buying that soldiers arc coming from New York some timo touight to ro-en-forco tho troops iu Chicago, aud they were making threats that they shouldn't get farther than Doxter. I duuuo," gloomily shakiug his head, "I dnnno what's going to happen, but I tell you cue thing I'm glad we don't livo iu Chicago, my sou." Jimmy secretly wished they did, so that ho might scoBoiuoof theso exciting BC-jnes, but as they didn't he tried to content himself by going to tho Somers country place, half a milo up tho road, to play tag with Charlie iu pursuauco of an engagement inado early that morn iug. When ho went into tho houso to nsk for his playmate, who was not onfsido as usual, he found un excited little group standing tbout tho telephone- in the hall nnd ilr. Somers listening in tently to tho unseen messenger. "Perfect panic thero touight," ho fiaid as ho dropped tho repeater. "Troops fired into tho mob this afternoon ; killed half a dozen people ; fires every whete; wrecking going on and ro-en forcctuout coming from New York tonight." "Hello, Jim," said Charlie, coming forward. "Como ou. Let's play striki. You bo a freight car, and I'll bo a strik er and overturn yon." This new gamo was followed awhile, and then Charlie's fertile brain suggest ed another scheme. "Yon boa train full of soldiers coining from New York, nud I'll bo tha mob and stop you." So Jimmy, with many a toot and snort aud "chug chug," rushed here nud there umong the shrubbery, playing ho was a train, while) Charlio piled sticks i n tho track and flagged the train nud stopped it with a smart green lan tern fiotn the stable until both boys wero tired out. Tho enu had long siuco svt, nnd the darkness was coming on fast. "I must go home," suddenly cried Jimmy. "Gracious I I didn't know it was ft ) late, Molher will be awfully worried." "Well, be sure nnd cone ever tomor row, " crkd Charlie after him, "aud We'll play strike again." "All right," answered Jimmy ns ho went whistling down tho road. As ho came near tho road Jimmy heard a stiuugo sound. It was liko tho distant snail and roar of tlio uuimals he remembered iu the one circus bo had ut tended in his life. Ilo stopped for a mo ment to listen. The noino rose and died on the eveuing ulr, nnd mingled with it rose another sound like the clink of tu truuicut agaiust steel. HiShest of all in Leavening Tower. Latest U.S. Cov't Report Mi "That sounrls as If somebody was hammering ou tho track," he said us he listened. Dut ho was late und so hurried OU toward homo. As he i) cared the gate bid mother came ruuulug down the walk, her apron over her head. "Jimmy, "she cried hys terically, "whero is your father?" "I don't know," unswend the boy. staring in dismay at his mother, who was pulo uud trembling. "Oh, my child," she Bcrearaed, "there's something wrong. Your father went over an hour ago down into tho woods to find the stray lambs, and he never B'ays bo lute, and 10 or 15 min utes ago u crowd of yelling, cursiug men ewept by hero like a cyclono and down into tho woods, and father's there, and maybe they'vo killed him." "Uold on, mother," cried Jimmy. "Don't take on so. I'll run down to tho edge of tho woods and seo what's up. Father's all right. What would they hurt him for, I'd liko to know?" Though ho spoke bo Btoutiy, tho boy was frightened, but ho ran as fast as ho could towaid tlio woods. lie remember ed tho uoiso ho had heard at the track and suddenly it ruhhed over him what it meant. "They're sympathizers of tho strikers, "be whispered as ho tore ucrotis tho field, "and thc-y'ro touring np tho track, I'll bet." When he reached the woods, he stole along ns cautiously as possible toward tho din and uproar, which every mo ment grew louder. Suddenly ho saw them. Thero were CO at least, bareheaded, ragged, prying up tho track with crow barsa frightful sight to a lonely little boy creeping among tho trees. Tho stray lambs, huddled together under a tree, wero bleating in u frightened, helpless way. Jimmy felt sure his father must bo near them, so, creeping on hands and knees uow, the boy crawled slowly along and Euddeuly saw his father tied to a tree, watching tho rioters completing their work of destruction. As Jimmy Eaw his father llr. Saunders, turning his head, eaw his son. Jimmy was not 10 feet away from his father, whilo tho ruob was at least 40 feet away from both. "Jimmy," murmured his father, "run, my boy, run 1 Tho New York special with soldiers I Dun up tho road and signal itl Nevermind mo, but save tho train." . With a lalf sob tho boy crept tack through tho tall grass to tho edge of tho forest and then darted across tho Cold toward tho farmhouse like un arrow. His mother met him. "Dou't stop me, mother," he gasped. "Father's alive, bet the Etrikers have got him. You run to Mr. Somers' for help. I'm going to signal tho special. " Signal the special I Suddenly he stopped. What with? Uow could he, a littlo boy, stop a train before it reached tho cut yonder? Ah, the red lantern, tlio despised, common thing he had sneered nt that very day. Two minutes later this towheaded, freckled faced young hero was flying up the track, his red lantern lighted, his bare fee t spurning tho earth, panting, stumhliug, sobbing, falling, up again and on, on.
