TWO STREET GAMINS. Woffla, the Newsboy, and " 'Doptad" Mend. His It Bad not arrmsl a if anything eoolj make that narrow, squalid Mrwt look any more dismal than th pouring rain, bat tkn, late ia the afternoon the rain stopped and the inn atrnrgled to break through the gray clouds. pallid litfht fell over the tall rows of tenement bounrs that made their aqnal or even more apparent. A few women with shawls hastily thrown over their heads hurried aJon the btreet, their wet skirts flapping about their feet It was not yet fire o'clock, and the men who were oa the street straggled aimlessly along with that weary, out-of-work expression with which one soon grows sadly famil isr In certain parts of the large cities. The street, however, swarmed with children who hopped about like spar rows and picked up their crumbs of en javment much after the manner of the feathered tribe. A street band played "Little Annie Boonev" with much vigor and many discords, and some of the children danced to the music, evading the heaps of rubbish with surprising gTace and agility. Into this ka leidoscope of dingy colors a new figure made its appearance. "Hi there, Wolfle!" shouted a small urchin, refraining for a moment from storming the windows of a tenement house with m ud balls. "Hi there, yerself," responded the newcomer. "How's Joey?" asked the urchin. Joey's bad, to-day," was the answer. The first nrchin resumed bis inter rupted occupation and the other moved along. One shoulder appeared to be considerably In advance of Ita neighbor and he proceeded side foremost, some what after the manner of a disabled crab. As straight aa the manner of his locomotion would permit, he came np the stepa of my bouse and Jerked the door belL "Good afternoon," I said, hastening to open tbe door; "do you wish to see mer "Be you the doctor lady?" inquired my visitor, scrutinizing my face for some stamp of tbe professson. "Yes, I answered, smiling, "what can I do for yon?" "Nothln' for me," he replied, with scornful gesture of an uncommonly grimy mtie paw, "only Just Joey." "And who is Joey?" I asked. "Joey? He my 'doption," was the answer. "Indeed!" I said, "and what might your name tier "It might be George Washington, but am t," ne replied, crisply, but, re lenting, added: "My name's Wilfred Mercer.

I counted eight stairs and climbed over the ninth, and with eves now more aceattumcd to the darkness I followed WolSe, who wa kilicg np the stairway aome distance in adTaoce. Two, three, four fights. At last we were at the top of the houwe where Wolfle and his "'doption'" lived, and WolSe, drawing himself up with an air f dignity, announced: "This is where I live. See?" I looked and I "saw" a miserable, dirty room, a chair, a wooden stool so tiay thst it seemed s if a strong draft of air would blow it up the chimnev, a table and in one corner of the room, a bed. " Slhat you, Wolfle?" came in sharp, childish treble from the corner. "lea, Joey, it's me and I've brung the doctor lady to make your back well. On the bed lay a poor little emaciated form with a mass of tumbled, curly hair throws back on the pillow and big black eyes that looked bigger and blacker from the purple shadows under them. "My back wont never be well," said the child, turning his head wearily on on the pillow, "but it don't ache so bad now nor it did. "Let me see," 1 na'ul. pausing my hand over the pathetically thin little back. "How did it happen?" I atked of Wol Be, who, perched on the stool, was re garding me with a look of elfish intelli genre "Yer see his mother was drunk 'nd sh pushed him downstairs, 'nd that's bow it happened. I got punhed down stairs myself onct. It didn't make so mack difference on me 'co I'm tough. but I kinder felt for Joey, and that why 1 'dopted him, see?" "Where is his mother, now?" I asked. Wolfle Jerked his thumb outward with an expressive noil that probably would have conveyed information to the initialed, but Uift mc as much in tha dark as to her whereabouts as be fore. "Joey ain't goin' to die, is he?" he asked, in an eacr w hisper, drawing me over to the window. "Oh, no, I hope he isn't," I replied, as encouragingly as I could. "Be yer talftin' about me?" sounded in Joey s shrill voice from the corner. "I was showing? the doctor lady yer garding,' said Wolfle, recovering his tang froii. "This yere, yer see. Is a g'ran'nira,' raising his voice that Joey might hea him, "and that yere is what folks call heartsease, leastwise t was afore the top got broke off," he corrected, point ing to a headless and withered stalk in a broken flower pot "Joey he sets heap of store by his garding and it does look purty with the sun a-shinin' on it." I mentally wondered how the sun could manage to shine through those dirty window panes, but Wolfle went on pleasantly: "llein' a rear tenement we has a heap of sun 'nd that's sarin' n coal as well as bein' better for the health." "How would you like to have Joey go away for a few weeks, Wolfle?" I asked, tentatively. "Yer ain't goin' to take Joey away from me, is yer?" said Wolfle, his eyes dilating with apprehension. "No, no, not for long," I assured him, "only for a few weeks where lie will hare a clean, soft bed and plenty of good food, and maybe get strong and well. "And me not sec hinf?" asked Wolfle, piteously. "You shall come to the hospital every week and see him, I promised. Kin I, certain sure? But hospitals Is where they cut folks op and sell 'em, am t it? he asked, suspiciously. Oh no, indeed, tiospitals are where they try to make sickjieople well, and they would take the very best care in the world of Joey." well, I s pose he kin go," he said, re fleotively; "but it'll be mighty lonesome thont yer, Joey," rubbing bis ragged sleeve across his eyes. 'I ain't like other kids, yer know; ' pose It's on account of my havin' of a crooked back and a lame leg. The boys they kinder Jibe me 'nd I Jibe 'em back; 'nd Joey s he s all I hev to be fond of. Yer likes me, too, don't ver, Joey?" he said, burying his head beside Joey'a wan little face. 'Yon bet!" responded Joey, with cor dial affection, and, after leaving a sleep ing draught for Joey, 1 went away leav ing them curled up together like two kittens on the hard, straw bed A few days later, Joey was snugly ensconced in a clean little bed at the children's hospital. The comfort and cleanliness of it all was a great sur prise to him and it was some time be fore he became accustomed to it. "My, if Wolfle were here!" he would say, passing his hand over the snowy coverlet with pleased wonder. But the pain in his back would soon make him forget even Wolfle and the clean cover let Every day Wolfle came to inquire for Joey. When it was known that Joey was Wolfle's '"doption" he was allowed to come into the ward whenever he came, for it was only a question of time, and a very short time that Joey would stay. In spite of all that care and skill could do the pain in the poor little back grew worse and worse, and Joey's strength grew less and less able to bear it Bnt his face never failed to brighten when Wolfle came, and Wolfle would stt for hours by the bed stroking Joey's fingers and talking to him in a crooning voice. Sometimes Joey would fall asleep and feel easier when he woke, and then he was content to lie and watch the golden sunlight that danced on the white walls of the hospital ward, and he would put cAit his hand to catch the sunbeams that flickered over the coverlet but they always managed to lip through his fingers and Joey thought that it was because his hands were so small and weak, and he would smile and say that he would chase them and catch them when his back was well But one morning when the air was tweet with the prophecy of coming spring, Joey'a spirit slipped away from the suffering little body and when Wolfle came Joey had gone where there was no more cold, or hunger, or pain. They thought that there would be an outburst of grief when they told Wolfle, but he only drew his hand across his eyes aa if the sunllg-lit dazzled him and without a word be turned and went away, nor could they call him back. j lor several days at this time I was jut ( few 04 tj flrtt Janirj lb I tnaie on my return was ft WolSe. K one at the a-uae had seen him and t was just thiakiBU of l-.A.c,f him up when I saw tie child e!?ii;g his way p the f U-ps. In his arm he carried the firiut U.e fcsrubbj "g'ruuiaia' of JoerV ' gardiag." aa-i from one of his sleeres there drooped a scrap of black crape. "I've brung yer this yere cos he set store by it, and yer was gmd to him. he said, as 1 opened the duor. "He won't want it bo more," he said, care fully setting the pot on a chair in the hallway. His face and hands were in describably dirty. He rubbed off soms of tbe soil from his hands upon his trouaera. "Guess if you had a lame back and bad leg you wouldnt go up four flights of stairs to wash 'em," he said, apolo getically, "besides Ke ain't there now." Tbe last link that bound the little waif to love seemed severed by Joey's death. Something in his isolation touched me inexpressibly, and I said impulsively: "Wol&e, how would jou line to stay here with me?" "What? yer don't mean it!" he said, a sutklea ray lightening up his face. "tea, I do mean it I want a boy who will black my shoes and do my er rands, resolving on the spot to throw away my t rench dressing and buy shoe brush and blacking, "and you, Home, are tne boy 1 want. "Oh Lor!" he exclaimed, too surprised to collect himself. The tears were running down his checks, streaking little channels through the grime of his face. "There ain't nobody speaked kind to me since k died, and I ain't had nobody to ao nothin for, he sobbed, and I did not try to com fort him for I thought thst tears would be the best relief to his bur dened little heart Yer sure yer mean it?" he asked. doubtfully, when he had recovered him self. "Indeed I do," I answered. "Shake," he said, extending his hand. If he had been Just a little cleaner I think that I should have kissed him to seal the bargain, but dirt is a great re presser of sentimentality and I not only did not kiss him but I did not prolong tne ceremony of hand-shaking beyond necessary limits. "Would you liko to go borne for any thing?" I asked when ws had talked orer the new arrangement "Taint home now Joey's gone; and my clothes is mostly at the Chinee laun dry," he added, with dignity. "Oh, of course, if your clothes are at the Chinese laundry you wont need to go home, 1 said, as politely as I could. "and when you have had a bath you will let me give you some others; clothes will be part of vour wages." He wisw grimy, so very grimy, that It did not seem as if any ordinary cleansing process would have much ef fect, and, after some consideration, I took him to a Turkish-bath establish mcnt, whence he emerged, some hours later, in an unrecognizable state of cleanliness. New clothes throughout completed the transformation, and no butterfly, newly emerged from the chrysalis, could have found the meta morphosis more delightful. "Do yer s'posc Joey has clothes like these yere in heaving?" he asked, after contemplating his attire, for some time, in silence. "Joey has all that his heart can wish," I answered, gently, and with that answer Wolfle was content. "I s'pose I kin't use bad words no more if I'm going to be your boy, kin I?" he asked, when the novelty of the new clothes had worn off a little. "Certainly not," I replied, "and Joey would be sorry to have you use bad words, too. He got along bravely throuirh the day, but the next morning I found him with his fingers pressed tightly over his mouth. "Oh my! oh Lor," he exclaimed. "I shall just bust if I don't say bad words now and then. Do yer s'pose Jocy'd mind if I should Just case off kinder gradooal instead of stoppin' so suddint like?" Wolfle's progress was indeed "grad ooal, and his relapses were at first alarmingly frequent, but in due time persistent care and kindness brought their reward. The stunted little form began to fill out and increase in stature, and though the crookedness must al ways remain one forgot It when one glanced at the sensitive face, whose shrewdness was fast giving place to a bright intelligence. Lame dogs were very near his heart, and the house was in danger of being converted into nn asylum for battered canines, for Wolfle pleaded so hard for his four-footed friends that I had not the heart to forbid his bringing them in, and he experimented on them with splints and bandages to his heart's con tent. Scem's if they was sorter human like," he explained one day when he looked up and saw me watching him. And indeed he had a dexterity and skill of manipulation that was not thrown away on me. 1 he days grew into months and Wolfle staid on, making himself useful in such s variety of ways that 1 wondered what I had done before be came. One morning an idea occurred to me, and I said, rather abruptly: "Wilfrid, how would you like to be a doctor?" "Golly!" he exclaimed, surprised into a lapse of language. "I mean that is what do yer say, Miss Annie?" "I mean that I am going to have you educated," I said, decidedly, "and it rests with yourself what you will be." Wolfle was silent for a moment, and when he looked up the tears were streaming down his face. I'll try to be a credit to yer," he said earnestly; "to yer and to Joey." And the weeks go whisking into months, and the months go spinning into years, and who knows what the future will bring forth? H. B. Clark, in American Agriculturist An Accident Explained. "I understand," remarked the polite reporter to the manager of a railway noted for the nnpunctuality of ita trains, "that there was an accident on your railway last night" Oh! do you?' was the sarcastic re ply. "Yes, sir." "Do you know fcnything about it?" 'Only that it happened to the train which was due here at 8:1(1." "That train came in to the minute. sir," said the manager, firmly. "Are you sure of that?" "Of course I am." "Thanks. That must have been the. accident referred to," and the reporter dodged out safely. Tid Bite.

The thrifty housekeeper is continually dusting, sweeping, clean ing, and as a result the bouse is the pride of every member of the fa mil v The farmer delights to ask his friends into the house, because such neatness, order and cleanliness prevail. Order in the house and order outside on the farm sometimes go baud in hand. bnt often they do not If tbe farmer likes and demands an orderly house. why should not the farmer's wife de mand an orderly-kept farm when ah goes out to get the air after her work is done? Now, the farmer may take his ease and read his paper in an untidy room, but not so comfortably as in one where neatness governs, because the eye is offended and worries him. The farmer s wife is disturbed when she walks abroad on the farm for recre ation by the general litter that meets and offends her eye. Many things, from a wheel-jack to a mowing ma chine, are seeu where last used; wag ons, parts of wagons, tools and rubbish block the way at every turn. This is not a fair return of favor. Neatness in tbe house should be supplemented by corresponding neatness on the farm. What a commotion there would be in some households if the sitting-room of the house was in sm-h continual confu sion as the yard of the house! It pays to use the broom on the farm. and to use it often. Indeed, positive damage results from neglecting it Dirt in the hoivs breeds vermin, and rubbish on the farm may produce what is equiv alent, literally or figuratively. Let the broom cut its swath from the house and brn out into every nook and corner of the farm, for the sake of appearances. if for no other reason. A well-swept farm builds the farmer's fame as a well kept house adds to the reputation of the housekeeper. George A pole ton, in Farm and Fireside. HANDY OUTDOOR COOP. Aa Excellent Tet Simple Device for Shel tering Young Chicks. There are many designs for coops to shelter young chicks. In fact, a per son with any idea in a mechanical way can devise a suitable one that will meet his needs. This one shown is my own idea and has been found quite useful. The .use of a saw and hatchet, with screws or nails, and a box obtained at the store in the town at which you deal is what will construct it. I speak of screws instead of nails because the coop may be unfastened and packed away in a clean place in the fall, or soon after the batching season Is orer, and be ready to refit when wanted the following spring. I shade tbe front by using a piece of canvas tacked along the roof and sewed around a frame of wire or wooden hoop. The front may be inclosed by small wire netting or out-doob coor. ooarse window screen wire and an opening at the floor cut to admit of the cbicks passing in or out. The board in front can be fastened to the floor of coop by means of hinges so as to fold np against the front on wet days until the rain is, over, when it can be lowered. The canvas front is fastened on screws at each side, the wire twisted around the screws, allowing it to be raised or lowered at pleasure. When it is wet the canvas is raised and the stepping board turned up against the front. The chicks are then shut in securely. After the rain all these may be adjusted as before and the wet kept out of the inside of the coop. The side door is for giving food to the old hen and cleaning up and supplying the necessary litter as often aa needful. The handle on top is made of a strap or old suspender, making it easier to re move the coop from place to place. J. W. Caughey, in Farm and Fireside. BIRDS VS. INSECTS. An Able Defense of the Feraecutcd Guard Jani of the Farmers' Crops. In nature there is a general overrul ing law which is roughly stated in th6 common saying: "The weakest must go to the wall," the action of which is very self-evident to those who have given much attention to the study of birds and insects. It is only when man so modifies nature that the law does not have free action that the balance is destroyed, and evil results. Insects, as well as the birds, doubtless have their proper place to fill in the great scheme of creation, and, like many things else, when held within bounds are for tbe common good. "When the cat is away the mice will play." So when the birds are scarce the insects abound, some times to our discomfort, and even dis may. I do not wish here to make any plea for the protection of birds on the grounds of beauty of their form or col oring, or the sweetness of their songs, but upon the purely utilitarian basis of guardians of crops from the destructive workings of the various injurious in sects. Some birds do not eat insects. but the list is small. Audubon has stated that a woodcock will eat its own weight of insects in a day. The com mon chirping sparrow destroys many a tent caterpillar moth. Birds have been constantly on the decrease, from the destruction of the forests, and other more direct causes due to man, while, on the other hand, the insects have steadily increased. There seems to be an eternal hatred of birds born with some boys, which it is painful to see in its varied manifestations. The stoning of old birds, robbing their nests, killing the young, is to be strongly condemned. Kindness to our feathered mends must come largely from home and school training. Parent and teacher can do much in this regard. American Agri culturist Thk habit of shying at unusual sight and sounds makes many a good horse unfit for road purposes.
