An old clergvinuu who hud held rare in the depths of the country fur the greater part of his life hud occasion. to commit his bishop nu a certain mut tcr, and, m answer to his letter, re reived au invitation to sleep the night at the palace. For 40 or 50 years he had practically led the life of a recluse, and it wus after many cogitations that be decided to take the journey to the other end of the diocese, where the bishop lived. He arrived just m tune for o'clock tea, a meal to which he wag complete stranger. Alter tea the bit-hop asked him to ac company him to evensong. When they returned to the house, the bishop, re marking that, it was quite time they went up stairs, lit a caudle aud showed his guest to bis room. It was theu just 7 o'clock, aud, though the old clergy man thought it was rather early to-re-the, still, admiring the bishop for such simple habits, he prepared for bed. He had just put out the light aud laiu down to sleep, wishing be had drunk a little more tea, when a booming noise rang through the hoiice aud smote npou his ear. Quick as thought he sprang from bis bed aud, shoutiug "Kirel" at the top of bis voice, rushed out ou to the landing just in time to meet the bishop, with a ludy ou his arm, going down to dinner.

TScMidcx. we were fam- shiiiK for news. Our mail and the late papers and magazines sliouiil lime been stnt to us every two weeks, but for nearly two months nothing had been seeu of the old trapper who acted as mail-carrier, and no messenger or message of auy kiud had reached us from the outside world. Kverv day we exacted from the cook a promise that he would bring our let ters out to us In rase the earner should arrive while we were at work on the liue. Then we would watch inipatleut ly till eveuinj: and hurry hack to eauip, more than half-expecting that the post had come In spile of the uon-appear- anceof Metlinnis. Expectancy was tor turing us. Disappointments repeated every evenlug for several weeks deeply affected the spirits of the party. We became restless anil unsociable. We tried to Imagine what had happened out In the world since we nail lost touch with it. aud each feared that some one dear to him had been seized by illuess or had met with misfortune. We worried aud fretted and tormented ourselves with impatience. One night after supper we lounged on our damp beds, teu of us In one tent, waitlug for bed time. The work of the lay had been unusually hard and the hours long. We were too leg-weary aud heavy of spirit to do anything but the little patching that was regularly necessary and to lounge. Mcfitnuls came over from" the cook tent to tell us one of his tales of forty years ago. It is stories possesseu one rare quality. They were reminisceut ot the wild life of t he mountain in the earlier days, but MctJinuis played no pioniiueut part in any of lln-iii. We were all curious to lcaru something about the old mau, but our curiosity was never natislied. Frequently as a story in which he ligiired gave promise of showing his younger self put to a lest of streugth or of courage, ho would break off suddenly or change the entire trend of his story. Hut he enjoyed spinning his yarns, and our silence of late had afforded him the opportunity. "Well, I see yous are t lie same merry crowd as ever," he said, cheerily, as he took the ouly chair In the tent. "But which of you is It that's eomiu' up the slope yonder, I'd like to know'" Several of us looked at him SVonder- Ingly. Those who were busy paid uo nileiitiou whatever. The camp dog stretched, weut lazily to the opening, then grew suddenly alert and began to bark. Almost in stantly ten heads were crowded be tween the lent flaps. Sure enough, some one whom we could not see clearly in the dim light was coming up the valley, it was e i- lently a man, following the line of our survey higher up the mountain Slope, though only a short distance away. We dually fell over cue another In our sudden exclleuieut. livery one seemed moved by the same impulse. A half-dozen .pairs of wet and worn-out boots disappeared from the passage be tween the two rows of hunks at the same Instant. Some one ran out and shouted to attract attention. Theu everybody else shouted, because there was suddenly shouting In the soul of each. Mclliuni.s wont quietly and lighted the lire he had laid for morning in the cook stove.

Kvery one understood what was. to ! dune. Those who owned r'Ues took Iheni down and provided themselves with cartridges. Kvery weapon in camp was hurriedly put iu readiness for use. The chief of the party had come over from the Instrument tent when our guest arrived. "What kiud of tracks were there?" he now asked. "I couldn't make out," the stranger answered. "Take the lanterns and plenty of can dles," said the chief. "And, Turner, you stay to watch camp." "I'll stay, too," said t lie stranger; "I'm too lame to travel. You'll have uo trouble finding the place." "I'll stay aud read my letter," an nounced M I i ii n is. (juicily, to the sur prise of every oue, for old Morton, the trapper, had been a friend of his iu the earlier days. A moment later only the stranger and Turner were left at the sleeping-tent. The searching party was well down the valley, aud Mcllinuis had gone to the cook-tent. Presently he came back wllh his hat and spectacles on. "It's from my little granddaughter," he said to t he stranger, as he opened the letter. "Would you miud reiidiu it to Into flu sleeping tent, where trier were lighted caudles. "I never liked this oup i looks." Mo Olnnls said, by way of ct:pla nation, as be wqied the blood from the face of the man who had brought the letter. "He looks like he'd sot a bait for you, an' that's why 1 wiut away au' come back nubekuowuce to 'em. 1 seen 'em whin I got to the cook-tent, and whin they come over I was w ail In' for 'em wid the War-trap, the only thing I could nud." Both men soon returned io conscious ness, and after au effort to free them selves they sat In dogged silence. lu.aliout half an hour several of the searching party returned with our pouch of mail, but most of the letters hud lieeu oicued, and many of them were torn and aluost destroyed. Soou after, others came, accompanied by three or four strangers, carrying a limp form, which they laid carefully upon one of the beds. The prisoners looked on Intently and with uumistukable signs of fear. Morton, our mail-carrier, had been shot in the back, and. though danger ously wounded, was still living. "U he dead?" asked the smaller prisoner. At the sound of his voice Morton, with a convulsive effort, sat up and put his baud to his side as If to draw his revolver, but It was uot there. The men who had come back with the party relieved the old cook of his prisoners and took I hem out to civiliza tion. They were deputy sheriffs, part of a large posse that for nearly a week had followed the trail of the two des peradoes. . The old mail-carrier, unavoidably de layed, had fallen lu their way when they were hard pressed for means of escape, and they had shot hi in for his horses. Theu, learning front the letters of our presence In the neighborhood, they had played at a bold game to- ob tain provisions and had lost. We felt that we knew McGiuuls bet ter after that.

"Ah.it'sbad business bad business! repeated the cook, as be put away his candle. "Now 'at I know what's iu the letter, I think I'll go ou down an' help lind out what It all means all this blood, here." Turner grew uneusynfter the old man had gone.

A man rather advanced in years, whose old fashioned attire and open mouthed wonderment proclaimed that be was a visitor from the rural dis tricts and uot accustomed to the every duy sights of a large city, was suddenly accosted by a shurpvisaged youth with, "Mister, yer dropped yer wallick." As be spoke be held forth a large wallet well stuffed with old revenue stamps covered with a couple of dollar bills. Uucle Rube looked at the greenbacks bulging out of tbe wallet with equally protrudiug syes, hesitated just one tno lueut, and then, his cupidity evidently getting the letter of him, reached for it. "Hold ou; give us a tenner ftirst exclaimed the possessor of the wallet. Tbe old man qnickly put bis bund in bis trousers pocket; but, after a mo ment, drawing forth his empty hand, he drawled out. "Take it out o' the wallet." The youth, closing tbe wallet with ill concealed ditfgust, turned on bis heel aud hurried off.

The rodmau and the "stake-artist" fell to wrestling, and rolled about m the tent and then out of It with most unexpected -agility and high spirits. A voice said It was uot the old mail-. carrier, aud we became still more curi ous. Not a member of the party doubt ed that it was some oue bringing our mall. Two or three of the boys went to meet the newcomer, and the rest of us, half -ashamed ot the eagerness we had shown, went back Into the tent, threw ourselves dowu ou the beds and assum ed attitudes of Indifference. We heard McGinuis calling: "Come over to the cook-teut aud eat before the boys start yon to talking; they'll never let you stop after." "I've e't," a strange voice answered. We inside sat tip agaiu, our anticipa tion reawakened. A short, heavy-set, square-jawed man. without grub-pack or blaukets, limped painfully into the tent aud sat down on oue of the lK'ds. He was evidently much travel-worn, but his small, bead-like eyes were In tensely bright, aud their glance from otic to another of us was rapid lind searching. "Hidn't you bring any mail?" asked the rodmau, abruptly. We all looked at the stranger eagerly and waited. "No," he answered. In a disinterest edly calm voice that lingered unpleas antly in our ears. The stranger felt In the Inside of his pocket. "Only a letter I found In the trail at the last creek crossing,'' he said, qtliet- lv. as he again searched us with his small, restless eyes. "It's for some oue named Patrick .Mo C. Iniils." he continued, holding up an unopened letler. "lo vou know hliu?" The old man reached tor his letter and silently held It to the light of the nearest caudle. Then -we all saw that It was crumpled and deeply staiued. "Widout my spectacles.

"The trail was torn up near where I found It. aud the bushes beat down. huuted without tiudiuu auythluu; but walked to the tent opening. After standing there a moment he whistled aud sudenly turned upou Turner with a drawn revolver. "Keen still and wall; outside," he said, quietly. Turner obeyed promptly. lie had no weapou with which to defend himself. aud he was badly frightened. Iu a few moments a sccotid stranger, lean, raw-boned and taller than the first, came out of the brush leading two horses, oue saddled, the other hearing a pack. The rlslug moon shed but a dim light along the mountain side; yet Turner saw at a glance that the aul uia'.s were the old mail carrier's. ' "They bit easy," said the shorter mau, with a low laugh.

Then he began to make a pack of what he had taken. "Never nilud that," said his compan ion. "Co over and lay out all the grub you cau." The tall stranger went to the cook teut. The other knelt dowu, laid his re volver ou the ground, kept his eye con stantly on Turner, aud made a roll of what the first had put dowu. Wheu he had cinched this onto the pack-horse he marched Turner before him to the cook-teut. The-flaps of the tent were slightly parted, but there was no light Inside, and everything was quiet, lie stopped before lue opening, gave Turner the bridle reins and made him keep his hands above his head while at the same time he held the horses, "Hurry up with the sluff." he ex claimed, looking Itito the darkness of the tent. lie waited a moment, and getting uo auswer, pushed aside the Haps and started lo euter. But he had put ouly oue toot Inside when the sound of a heavy blow was heard, and with a mullled cry he M! forward on bis face. Instantly McCIlnnls emerged from the tent, and the surprised Turner saw hliu drag out both strangers, almost to gether, and dexterously bind their bauds and feet. A new vigor had cotue lulo the old man's frame, a new alert ness. There were purpose and posltlve uess in his every movement us he went about his task. Wheu the men were secure he looked at Turner.

I can only retuenilM'r scram bling savagely over two men, jumping wildly from oue man to another, with the ball just ahead of me under the legs of what seemed to be a thousand people. Then I heard a wild, unearth ly yell. Nothing like It had ever come l to my ears before, and I remember wondering what it could be. It swelled and grew with each moment. Now It died away; now It spread out stronger than ever. I had a queer feeliug of wonder If I were still playing the game. Nobody seemed to be near. Then a black-faced, fierce-looking fig ure rose up In front of me. I must get out of his way at auy cost. I moved aside anil thrust my open hand straight Into his face, caught his hair aud ear. aud scrambled all over hint. ' He seem ed to be the only one out of the game except myself, aud the maddening feel- lug Hint 1 had made some mistake lent me the strength to throw him rolling away on the ground. There was that same wild, exultant yell again. It swept over the Held as I have seen a cloud of dust sweep up a street. And then all in a moment 1 knew the cocaine had given out aud my strength was gone. I got a swinging blow on the head, and lay quietly down with . the feeling that I was tired out.

The National Monse Olnbof England recently held an exhibition where sev eral hundred mice competed for gold medals, champion cups aud various oth er prizes. These little creatures are not the ordinary everyday mice which scare tbe cook and drive the mistress of the house to take refuge on a chair. They are well bred mice that expected to be petted and caressed aud treated as ten derly as a pet cat or dog. By careful breeding they have de veloped great variety in coloring and sometimes in shape. One very choice tyle of animal, called the spiny mouse, has a row of bristling hair for a spinal ornament aud is a vey cute niiuiature reproduction of a porcupine. The fa miliar white mice so often seen for Bale on the streets here have been bred with black eyes instead of red ones. It has taken several years to produoe these re sults, but the sociuty now claims to be able to furnish mice in 12 or 13 differ ent shades. To any one who is able to overcome the fear of mice they are daiuty, delicate little studies at any time, but when they play aronnd in suits of chooolate, sable, fawn, jet black,- tortoise or golden agouti they be come perfectly fascinating.
