THE RED BEGGAR. Once urn a time there was a pretty little cottugo by the side of the road to the town. It was huuiblo, but all alxxit it, everything, was always neat and trig, so it was evident tltnt it was not the dwelling of either sloth or want. A honeysuckle climbed up over the door, and gay flowers bloomed in beds before itj while on the south was the stand for tho bees, whoro in straw tliatohed hives thoy stored honey all day long in sunny weather. - Iu tho cottage lived an old mau named Paul and his wife Barbarcr. They were very fond of each other, and had it not been that they had no children they would havo been fis hnppy as thuduy wns long. ( As it was, they tried not to inlss too much the prattle of littlo ones which tho Btorka would not bring to them, but went on their way tu life, thrifty and kind to the poor, and doing good when it offered. In the morning Paul would go afield to'his work, whilo Darae. iarbaror would remain at homo to do whatever house hold tasks needed uttention and after ward to spin smooth threads of flax with her d is tuff, to bo sold in tho market of the town or to bo woven into cloth from which she made clothing for herself and her huaband, or, 'what quite as often happened, for some poor and unfortunate neighbor. Damo Darbaror was always kind to the bcegsu-a who came her way. Thoy seom- cd to tier so unfortunate in not having a home that she could not help giving them at least food and now and then an article of clothing, and she was almost always patient even when thoir requoets, as sometimes happened, took almost tho form of commands, Tho poor creatures know no better," she would say. "Thoy have nothing; not even sense enough to know how to be p-rateful; but that does not matter, do not help them becauso they beg prettily, but lccause they need. But or.co upon a time thero came a beggar who tried tho patience of Dame Barbarcr quito beyond even her endur ance. It was ono afternoon when it wne almost timo for her husband to return from the field, and Burbarer was hasten injr to Rot his evening meal ready for him. Sho had been to the town to sell somo thread, and had been detained, so that she had not time on her return to bake a wheaten cake for his supper, at sho had intended. She hod only a very littlo bread in the house, and when a beggar came along and rather impudently demanded a bit of bread and cheese she was loth to give it to him. Tho beggar was by no means a prepos sessing looking individual. Ilis dress wne all of red, although it was so faded and weather beaten, so tattered and torn thut it was hard to tell what it looked like iu Its best days. Tho remains of a red cock's feather was stuck Jauntily in his cap and jajrged ends of faded red ribbon fuHtenod his doublet. Long black hair dangled In tangled locks over his foro heud, and, with his ehaggy black eyo brows, half hid his piercing eyes. Ilis nose was sharp and thin, and there was to his nostrils a stranxo curve which made his face ono not at till preiose28 inz. Add to all this that ho was Uuue of ono foot and that ho hod something of a hump between hU shoulders, and he was not at all the sort of man ono would wish to nv- t on a loue-Iy road. Dnme Barbarcr heaved a sigh as she looked at Lim, and ht-sitated, while the strati (to red figure leered at her In a man ner that sent a cold chill down her spine. She did not wish to n)aro the little bread thero was for Paul's supper with this fantastic looking creature, but she was too charitablo to turn him awy wlUiout j a moTM L So site made the beggar sit j down ufon the doorstop, and then aJ Cr.sugl.rhin. small ,sta. of bread and a uj piece of cIk hoping that the tie of otK, woul I mike up for the . m&iln4 of the oilw-r.

"Please, It rod mistreat," he said more humbly than before, ''please, kind mis tress, couldn't you give mo a morsel of cheese to go with my broadr Tills also was Dome Bar barer fain to dot and hungrily as the fire devouring a fioldof ripe grain did tho varla make way with Ids bread. ' "Ylouso, good, kind mistress," ho said, 'pleoao, good, kind mistress, could you not give mo a very littlo, wee tuorsol of breud to eat with my ehoeecr And to cut short a story which though it would be long In Uw telling was cot long In the doing, the red beggar would contrive first to make an end to his bread and then to make an end to his cbeoso, begging with ever Increasing lnsistanoe for more of one and then of tho other, until ho had managed to beg from Dame Darbaror every morsel of bread there was In tho housa, and the hour of the good mun's return already striking. And when all woe gone tbe impudent and un grateful red varlet threw baok his hair from his deep set and piercing eyes and laughed In bcr face. "Many thanks, sweet mistress," he said saucily. "If the good man scold for luck of his supper, teach him the wuy I gut mine, and it may servo 1dm in good stead if ho will but take to the highway and seek out some soul as char itable as his wife." Then it was that for almest the only time in her Ufa Damo Barbarcr lost her temper. "Get you gone!" she cried angrily. "Is it not enough that you have eaten all the good man's supper whon he toiled all day and you have been aulcep, it la like ly, In tho sun besldo some haystack, but in return you must stay, ana flout mo for my silly good nature. A pretty re turn, good sooth, for tho food I have given youl Get you gono whilo I can still keen my honest lmnds o!T your luzy carcass.'' The vagabond scrambled up from his seat upon the doorstep, and 6tood look ing Into her angry faoo with an unpleas ant laugh. "May I not come in and worm myself by the fire first?" he naked sauoily. "Come in and warm yourself V echoed the damo angrily. "Let your supper warm you, beggar!" And with that sho pushed him off of tho step into tho sandy walk. "May you be colder tho more you put on," said the red beggar as Damo Bar barer closed her cottago door upon him with a push not very goutlo. The dume did not heed him or bis words, hut set to work with all speed to get something ready for her husband i supper. "Shivery shakoryl" said Dame Bar- barer to Goodman Paul when he came, "I run very cold," "Put more clothes on," he answered. So lie gave her his coat, and she put that ou and her thickest cloak, and her hood and a pair of mittens, and two pairs of stockings. "Shivery shakeryl Slwkory shivery!' cried the old woman; "I am colder than ever," "Put more clothes on," said Paul. So alio put on a veil and her husband's Ixiota and his Sunday cravat and a pair of earrings and a walking stick. "Shivery shakeryl Shakery shivery I I shiver and shako! she cried. "I am colder thou boforo." "Put more clothes on," eald her hus band. So she put on a blanket and a bosom pin. and a necklace that she nnd not worn sinco she was a young girl, and collar and her husband's watch chain. "Shivery shakeryl Shakery shivery! I Bhlver and shake! I shakeand shiverr slie cried. "I am colder than ever." "Put more clothes on," once more said her busbund. "Here, tuke my thick waifttooat." She took the waistcoat, but In order tc get it on it was necessary to take off some of the many things bIio was already wearing; and, as fast as she took off th things in which alio was wrapped, she began at onco to get warmor, and shore nieiubcrcd tho words of tho red beggar, and liow ho had wished that sho might grow colder tho ruoro she put on; and Dame Barbarcr knew tliat a spell hod been laid upon her because she had spoken harshly to the vagabond when he wished to conio In and warm himself by her firo. Site thcrcforo tnado herseli warm by taking off her wrappings until she had as littlo on as it was at all re spectable to wear, and thereafter she went in cold weather so thinly clad that her neighbors declared Utat sho had lost her wll& It was well nigh a year that this state of things continued, and one day Ju.H at the sun wim near setting, and tho dame waa every moment especting her hus- K "L-r ua I band homo from the field where ho had Un nl work nil dtv. when a Htrantra ,1J woman came puttering along tho road.

"Ilumphl Ferhape you weren't polite to him, lie livery particular about that." "I am sure," the Pome answered, "I tried to be kind to him until ho was auuey to tuo," Tho red woman chuckled more Uian over. "Well," she said, finishing Ixtr supper, and rising with more agility than one would havo expected of her; "you are on the whole a good sort, and I dare snr on the whole you have been puniMied enough." "Oh, indeed I have," poor Barbarur answered, with tears in bor eyes. "More than enough." "Well, thou," tho old woman suld, "It shall not be said thut I havo not made amends for what ray brother did more than you deserved, and you shall have your heart s desire." She looked Into Darborer's face, and the dame would have sworn for her lifo that it was the red beggar who cursed her into whose face she was gating. Then sho bent over again with one of her sin Ister chuckles, and went hobbling down the roud. And before the summer canio around again the storks hod brought a littlo eon to thecottage.

Constitutional Amendments. Tbe people of Texas will be called upon at tbe general election uext full, to vote upon two amendments to tbe state constitution. One pro poses tbe regulation of railroads by a cotnnuHHion, and the other provides that a majority of tbe voters of a county may vote a tax of 15 cents on the $100 valuation of property for tbe maintenance of pnblio roads . Tbe first Las boon extensively dis cussed, whilo tbe latter, although of vastly more importance, brts been al most altogether neglected. As mat ters now stand the legislature tnuy interfere to prevent unjust discrimi nations or exorbitant railway rate, but the proper improvement of county roads is utterly impossible. To rele gate railway regulation to a commis sion with plenary powers ' is but to make a change in the existing order of things with no surety that such change will be for the better; to so amend the constitution that the tax payers of a county mty build good roads is to give the farmers of tbo state an opportunity to get out of the mud, to grunt thorn liberty to go down into thoir own pockots for the wherewithal to improve their own property.
