JEFFJRSON'S HARD LUCK STORY.
Vain Effort to Start a Toang Man on tba

Thou as Jefferson can tell moro hard

even Jo j ever dreamed of. 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

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
"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
"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
"That sounrls as If somebody was

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
