Speakin’ o’ searehin’ parties ami fel lers t timin' up missin'. and things like that, the excitin'est time 1 ever seen in these parts was the time ole Pap Hodg kins was lost. The whole neighbor hood was tore up and men was out rul in' all night auu wiunuern was scairt and everythin'. The way it was was this: One evemn about dusK \i»p noun kins he come over to my house and said he was worried about Pap—that's his •father—as he'd t >ok the sorrel mare and gone oil somewheres and hadn't come back., lie d never stayed out so late before, and the folks was consid - able shook up over it. Pap was ole and he was deef, and, though he was perty sprj ior • 1 on* t:.. ■ . s'picious somethln'd happen to him. I went back to Abes house with him, and we found his wife jes a teat in around. She was always a-jawtn and a-naggin’ the-ole man when he was at home. but. like wimmern folks, she v.as takiu' on like --.xty when she was a iVaid he’h had an »■. som thin’. She bawled and staved around a heap, and finally Abe and me set otf to go and rouse the neighbors and make some inquiries and see if any body had heerd of him or seen him. The upshot of all we could find out was that Miller's boy had seen him tidin' west on the Pawnee road about 3 o'clock that afternoon. So a lot of the men folks pot their horses and set out to hunt him. it was a bright moonlight night, and we rid along till we u to Widder Millers plaee, and then we questioned the boy. and all he told was that he'd seen him. as . said. Then we rode along and crossed ever to the Pawnee road and ast at all the houses if they'd seen an ole man on t< sonel mare any time that day. but we couldn't hear no more news of him. They was nothin' for it but to turn back and go home. We found my wife md several neighbor wimmern s.ill up and all over at Hodrkins’ tryin' to calm Mizz Hodgkins. \s soon as we coni" in she lit in « n Abe. “Hev ye found him?” says she. -Naw." says Abe. Then she turned up with another cryin' spell and says, says she: ‘O lordv, lordv, lordyl 1 knowed some thin* was goin' to happen. I knowed it. It's a jedgment. Abe Hodgkins, on you for the way you been neat in’ yore pore ole father.

"There, nev’ mind, AIizz Hodgi.ins, says Mizz Bascom, a puttin camfort on her hank’chief an a rubbin her head. "Nev' mind. Ye must bear up, sister. They's trouble comes to all of us. We musn't complain of our lot. The Lord give and the Lord has took away, ye know." . "0, my pore ole pap!’’ said Mizz Hodgkins. "He was such a comfort. There's his ole cheer right over yon. 1 seen him sit there many a time, right there. a-bo>»-hoo! right in that—a-boo lioo!—that there cheer.” „ “Don’t take on so. Mizz Hodgkins, says one of the winuneru. “He’ll turn up all right. Mebbe lie's just gone over to some o’ the nighbors v/e haint se> n. He'll come home to-mor . ‘■No, he'll never come nome nu more!” says she. ”1 feel it. Some* thin’ tells me he haint never comin back no more to Ins lovin dartei. O, lordy! oh! oh!"—and she leaned back a gaspin' on one o the wininiern. Abe's boy spoke itj* from the next room, where the children was in bed, and Mowed pap had gone to town may be to git some tcrhaeker, as he was p t nigh out. , „ "Shot up there, Amos W ilbanhs. said his mother, a sit tin’ up again. “What do you mean by talk in about terbacker and sinful tilings in such a time ns this?" , . , Well thev carried on till late, and finally as they couldn’t do nothin' else they got Mizz Hodgkins to bed and went home, agreein' to start out agin next day. _ . l had niv r’nemna+ics next dav. and couldn't ride out, so I went over to Hodgkins’ to help calm things and wait to hear the news. Abe’s wife was at it agin, a bellerin and weepin around while she was reddin’ up her house. .

He was so deef he couldn't quite make out what •twas all about. Abo finally explained tliat pap had rid over to his darters, Mizz Sanders’, and they'd met him cornin’ home. Abe’s wife pushed through the crowd and come up close to the ole man's ear and veiled: “What did ve go over there for. an rot tell anybody and make so much trouble, hey?" “Well.” says pap. "I got to thinktn about Mirnndv's lcetle baby and won derin’ whether she give ii a rtrtnk o water often. Lcetle babies needs water sev’l limes every day. So 1 rid over to tell her to be shore and gi\e tile baby a drink.” “Lord a' mercy!" says Mizz Baseom. “Rid eighteen miles an’ back to toll a wommern to give her baby a ‘ link and she doubled up laughin .

Man Proposes to Present Artificial Limbs to Soldiers of Southern Army. FRIENDLY DEED THAT NO WARRIOR COULD DECLINE. Recent New Leg so Marvellous That Old Ones Are Cumbersome and Unwieldy. COULD DANCE AT A REUNION WHEN ALL ARE FITTED OUT. Wooden-Legged Men Who Ride bicycler, Sprint. Dance and Jump on Chairs. BALL-BEARING, ROTARY, BACK-ACTION, SPRING AND PNEUMATIC LIMBS. A most delightful motion was made before a Grand Array Post at a recent meeting. it was set forth by a one legged veteran of the war. and it was to the general effect that the G. A. it. present wooden legs to the legless vet erans of the Southern array. It is not to he supposed that South ern veterans cannot supply their own legs, or that they all are in need of them. But there have been improve ments lately made in the artificial leg industry that render all legs of more than a year's standing ancient and capable of much improvement. And it is thought the purchase of a supply of these new and highly improved ones would be a chivalrous move on the part of the G. A. R. The Grand Army Posts, strong. Even metals are insecure. There must ue ti. •■’•■si ...o«.-is and most pliant wood 1 in a leg. But the term "cork leg" arose from the fact that it: many legs the calf is hollowed out and Idled with cork. This makes it lighter. But an entire "cork leg" is unknown. LEARNING TO WALK. The weight of an artificial leg is about three pounds. And a man, to walk on liis light wooden leg. requires practice. It ts harder than learning to ride a bicycle. Once learned, and lie cannot fall unless he is tripped up. lie can moderate his speed, slow up or go back, or do about as he pleases. i he trouble with a new wooden leg is with its lightness.

Legless men come from France, from Argentina P--public, from Russia, and from that hone of science, Germany, to get legs here. The finest legs are turned out after patents kept exclusively for trade this side of the ocean. These legs are lighter, more supple and fitted with appliances that make them wonders of mechanical skill. Each leg is made to order, and It takes two men one week to cot plote a good limb. The most remarkable thing about the artificial lop trade is that those who are engage.d in it wear false legs or arms. They become experts by exper imenting with their own substitute limbs. The largest retail place in New York has two partners. One wears two wooden legs; the other has a false log and a false arm. The foreman is a one-legged man and the clerks are minus elbow, finger, leg or rib. The expression "cork leg” was used by the veteran who made the motion before the G. A. R. He said that the wooden legs now worn were very heavy and cork ones should he substituted. This is a mistake, as far as the word ing goes. There never has been, and never will be. such a thing as a cork l^g. An artificial log must be very weighs considerably more than three pounds. His new leg, therefore, until he learns to find his centre of gravity, upsets him. lie is . > very light on that side. His most annoying trouble is with the knee joint as lie tries to walk. 1 he >- ien. i* (m v.aikiei w’.Hi a wooden 1 'g is tu catch it. on the lieel. When the f(Jot is lilted from the ground the spring in the Knee ilwows the leg out straight in mos ridiculous fashion. Peenie laugh, and a man becomes sen sitive about walking in the street.
