WON BRIDE AND RANK.
How Younj; Mr. Labonchero Kose to Em
In 122 Mr. Labouchere, a relative
of the present member of Parliament
of that name, was clerk in the banking
house of IIoo, of Amsterdam. One
day he was sent by his patrons to Mr.
Baring, the celebrated London banker,
to negotiate a loan. Ho displayed in
the allair so much ability as to entirely
win the esteem and confidence of the
"Faith." !-aid Labouchere one day to
Baring, "your daugh cr :s a charming
creature. I wish I could persuado you
to give mo her hand."
"Young man. you are ;oking, for se
riously you must allow that Miss
Baring cou'd never boco:ue the wife of
a simple clerk."
"But," said Lab uchere, "if I were
in i artnership with Mr. Hope'?"
"oh, that would bo quite a di,rerent
thing: that would ntirely make up
for all other delicienccs. "
Keturning to Amsterdam Labouchere
said to his patron:
"You must take mo into partner
"My yc ung f riond, how can you think
of such a thing? It is impossible.
You are witli out fortune, and "
"But. if I became the son-in-law of
"In that case the affair would soon
be settled, and so you have my word."
Fortified with these two promises,
LaboiH'hero returned to England and
two months after married Miss Baring,
because Mr. I lope had pr omised to take
him into partnership, and ho becamo
allied to the- house of IIopo on the
strength of that promise of marriage.
A PATCHED PONY.
of a Rabbit
"These stories of Indian troubles in
the Southwest remind mo of an ex
perience tiat I had down in Xew Mex
ico," said Henry Davidson, of Albu
querque. "I was new to the region
then, and although 1 had heard all
sorts of strango tales about tho tricki
ness of the Indian, I clid not know that
ho was a-, shrewd as I afterward found
him to bo.
"I wanted a pony for some reason,
and I communicated my desiro to a
friend of a crowd of tho greasy citi
zens of the outskirts. Tho next day I
was be:-ieged with offers. I looked all
over the lot and picked thrco or four
to make my selection from. After eov
eral hours I settled on an animal that
I thought to Ih3 in tho pink of condi
tion and form. I took him fur a good
rouni sum and a trado thrown into tho
"1 rode homo on. tho animal. As I
got into my quarters I noticed that
tho horse ap eared to bo uneasy, as if
suffering from injury. As I live, I
found that a patch of skin sovoral
inches square hvA come off hi3 back. I
looked into it and discovered that tho
horso was raw there, and that ho had
been patched up with rabbit or some
other skin for tho time being. Thoso
Indians stood by each other, tx, for I
could n-jver locate tho scoundrel who
had swindled mo. I havo sinco con
cluded that they were all wrong, and
that had I bought tho outfit I would
have fi und tho oddest assortment of
pat hed horses that it was over tho
fortune of a white man to look upon."
