MICKEY FINN’S “DARBY.” Tom Connor was the blacksmith over the lull. Mickey Finn was in the habit of running on errands for Torn, and so, whan Providence sent a litter of pig* into Tom's Bty, he picked out the small* cat, mod measly locking pig in the lit ter, mid gave it to Mickey. Of course the bov was delighted, and ran home with the squealing little porker under his arm. Now, if there was anything of which Mrs. Finn was fond it was fresh pork, especially when it was young and ten • der. Put she had had considerable ex perience with animated pork in her day, and after looking at Mickey's acquisition with tiie eye of a connoisseur, she de cided that the chances of the pig’s ripen ing into plump liams and juicy clioi were very slim, “Now, Mickey, yon take that rack o’ bones wid no mate on it back t’ Tom Connor, an’ toll him he might better bo up t’ bolter business nor shovin’ oil his hones an’ bristles on ye. Fuix, he might ns well bo giviu’ ye a shtove grate. Luk at tii' tail iv th’ bonoeni Muslin, thorn's no more twist to it Ilian to a lioo handler “But, mother, I don’t want th’ pig t’ ate. I want t’ play wid him!” “Play wid a pig, is it! God save us! Nixt ye'll want to be playin’wid Fee nan’s calf, so ye will. Oh, but you're n looney b’y; ye’re out iv yer sivin small siuseii. Play will a pigl Ocli, did I iver hear the likes! Play wid a pig! Meblie ye’d be puttin’ pants on him an’ footlin’ him wid a spoon, agrn. It’s a qunro lad ye are. n e b’y, wid yer ould divll goats an’ that black crow as lias shiny beads in his head. Well, well, an’ I wantin’ l’ make a ly’yer iv ye ’stea I iv a dirty snake charmer or mautiierin* vairlames as ye will lie av ye don't shtop foolin’ wid animils! So, tlutro. Now, Mickey, take that pig back l’ Tom Connor an’ tell him t’ give ye wan wid pork on his ribs an’ fate wortli picklin’ on him. Now run, run ana', ” Mickey picked up the pig tenderly in his am s and went away over the hill. IT is boart was heavy; but Tom Connor cheered him up. “Mickey*’ said lie, you an’ I’ll make a pen fer tiie porker foreninst th* forge, an' you can gather a little grass and stuff fer him. Mebbo he’ll get fat. Thiu yer mother’ll be glad t’ hav’ him. We’ll call the porker Darby. " The pen ans built and Darby was duly installed therein. Under the fostering care of the blacksmith and little Mike tiie porker grew in size and plunipuess, and endeared himself to Mickey by his many winning way a The pig iiecame brood of back and strong of limb. Darby’s cars began to drop upon his neck, and he was very fond of being scratched between them with a piece of old iron. And so the days fled quickly by, filled with the joy of content. But while the May days were slipping away into the eternities Mrs. Finn had not been idle. Her boy’s extravagant praises of Darby had awakened her cupidity anew. Often while Mickey was at school Mrs. Finn took sly trips aver tiie meadows to tiie sty. On each of these occasions she always took with her some choice morsels which were onlculated to increase Darby's girth, and to make his jowls drop with fatness. A la--. I however, Mia. Finn entertained none of those fine sentiments of unselfish love for Darby which animated her son. She could see no poetry in the corkscrew curl of Darby’s tail as he grunted with pleasure while gnawing last year's cabbage stump Her finer semibilitics had been roughened by the sandpaper of misfortune. Each ponn l Darby gained meant not added grace and proportion to her, but rather suggested the salty pork barrel and the uaaiing frying pan. During all this time Mickey’s old gray bearded billy goat waa suffering the torments of unrequited affection. Day by day the billy saw Mickey go by him on iiia way to the pig pen. But once in three long weeks did little Mike st >p and gambol with the goat as he iiad been wont to do in the sweet old days before the coining of the hated Darby. Tue goat seemed to be aware that the affections of his master were waning away from him, “like tiie twilight of an autumn day. - Ouly a little sunlit hollow in Stumpy Field separate . liarby and the goat. J O.ie morning, while yet the grass wan bending beneath diamonds of dew, the goat came out of his barrel and stretched Itis legs, He looked off over the valley at the mitts fleeing up the rugged side* >f Sake Hill He saw the faint flush in the east gradually deepen into a vivid blush of rote color. Then he in dulged in a little practice butting. While engaged iu this harmless nmuso r***nt tle Wily tiecame awnre suddenly to'*t he was a free g<uit. no lo:g< r l .uud l*v (ii galling clothes line. Ti >v hilly, having sattsfied hinvelf that he nna not captive, ambled over t<’ Darby’s p*n. Tito pig was asleep He, however, was s son awakened. There * a ballerig ram at his gate. Once, twice, thrice did that implacable catapult hurl itmdt against the frail pen. Then the hem hick groaned iu pain; it cracked, it broke. Darby sprang to his feet and tquealed iu fright. The hoofed demon, with glazing eyes and ragged liangs full of hemlock splinters, was in the pen. Now. what avails thy sleek and rounde t balk, O porcine by liarlte? Better, far, if thou but badst the gaunt and hollow flank. The washboard ribs, tby leanness as of yore! Then began an awful struggle Urged by the billy. Darby was forced out into the field and bou led over and over down the hill. The billy attended strictly to business. No sooner did Darby get on his feet than he wus culled ou in a moat forcible manner to lie down. When Darby had once more got his trembling legs under him he made oue supreme ef fort and ran up the hillside. His ascent was materially assisted by the goat But Darby was going toward the lime quarry I In headlong, blundering flight Darby rushed madly on. The Lushes fringing the briuk of the precipice were )>ai led by the maddening rush of 85 pounds of nnin ated pork, A faint squeal rent the air of the beautiful May morning, there was a dull and sickening thud on the rocks below, anti Lifeless but beautiful Darby lav. Before Mickey missed Darby his une’e drove up to the door and invited him to make a short visit to Ponckhockie. Af lei tier sou had gone and the breakfast dishes were cleared away, Mrs. Finn went to the sty to buvealook at the pig. There the awful reality dawned upon her—the wrecked sty, the freed goat, and the missing pig. But when Bhe found Darby in the quarry she made no moan. In fact, she smiled and boro the body home in her strong anna The next morning Darby was tried by fire and was not found wanting, for his jacket assumed a rich brown color and the savory smell that rcise from the oven was sufficiently npj>etizing to make the tongue of a gonr.net palpitate in his mouth. Then Darby was put ou a big plate and placed in the oven. There were a number of guests at dinner Hint day, among whom were Mrs. Murphy, Mrs. Cronin, Mike Welsh’s wife, Fatsey Corrigan’s lass Nancy, and the one legg*d accordion player “as timls th’ railroad switch an’ waves th’ rid flag w hiu thare’s a cow on the thrack. ” Just as the guests sat down at the table Mickey returned, but his rnolhei gave him a plate in the kitchen for cer tain prudential reasons. Darby was indeed a beautiful sight, ornamented with sprigs of celery and witli a brand new corn cob iu liig mouth. If lie was lovely in life, he certainly presented a very toothsome appearance iu death. Mickey drummed impatiently upon the kitchen table with his knife handle, because, being (lie younger, he had to wait until nil the rest were served. But at last a big piece of tenderloin was placed lieforo him. To his shame, tie it said, lie nc u ally neglected the potatoes on his plate, and ask el for a second piece of Darby before he touched the potatoes. It is with deep regret that the recur rence is recorded, but Mickey’s pinto was filled a third tim, ami in this in 'itanco it w as a choice cut from the phn p ham of his little protege. After ho had been filled to repletion, after the but tons of his vest had been relieved of dangerous pressure, he lenned back in his chair with grease ou his face and a peace-with-all-the-world look in his eyes, Then his mother turned to him and said: “Mickey, did ye like th’ dinner?” “Yis, mother." “Won’t ye hav’ another little bit off th’ neck—jist a trifle, deac?” “No, mother, dear; I couldn’t ate it; I’m full." “Well, darlint, ye won’t be freckened if I tell ye somethin’?" “No, mother, I will not ” “Well, that piec9 o’ rib, an’ that bit aff tli’ ham, ye’re afther ’atin’ kem olf your Darby!” If a bombshell had fallen at Mickey’s feet he could not have been more 'tartled. He leaned forward and big tears ran down his cheeks and mingled with the gravy iu his plate. Then he laid his head down upon the table, and wept as if his heart would break. — [Ernest Jarrold. Larger Ears, Larger Ache*. Seven-year old Jack was afflicted with earache, and screamed frantically with the paiu. “Hush, Jackie, dear, ” said nursesootlr iugly. “Don’t cry so; it only makes it worse. D m’t you mind how little Ned behaved when he was having earache ? He never cried this way. ” “Hull!" yelled Jack indignantly. “What does that baby know about ear* ache? His ears ain’t more’n half as big as mine ” Remarkable Facta. Heart disease is usually supposed to be incurable, but when properly treated a large proportion of cases can be cured. Thus Mrs. Elmira Hatch, of Elkhart, Ind., and Mrs. Mary L. Baker, of Ovid, Mich., were cured after suffering 20 Jears. 8 C. Lenburger, druggist at San ose. 111 ,says that Dr. Miles’ New Heart Cure, which cured the former, “worked wonders for his wife.” Levi Logan, of Buchanan. Mich., who had heart disease for 30 years, says two bottles made him “feel like a new man.” Dr. Miles’ New rieart Cure is sold and guaranteed at the City Drug Store. IT IS UNDIBPUTABLE—that more cases of DYSPEPSIA, INDIGESTION WEAK STOMACH, BILIOUS and Gas, trie Derangement are cured by HUM PHREYS’S BPECIFIC NO. TEN than by all other remedies put together. % for pf. LU YOU CAN GET tlltfl THE CAPITAL OWE MOUTH. PRICE ONE CENT BITS OP INFORMATION. Our nary has a paper boat. Portugal owes $500,000,000.

In its native habitat the shell of tho oyster is always a little open, and micro scopic, waving hairs set up currents which carry the food plants to its mouth, where they are engulfed, and afterward digested. In the year 1200 chimneys were scarcely known in England. One only was allowed in a religious house, one in a manor house, and one in the great hall of a castle or lord's house, but in other houses the smoke found its way out as it could. The word sulky, as applied to a wheeled conveyance, had its origin in the fact that when it first a[>peared the person who saw it considered that none but a sulky, selfish man would ride in such an affair, which afforded accommodation to but one individual. The modern custom of lifting the hat goes back probably to the age of chiv alry, when knights appeared in full ar mor everywhere, but removed the hel met when in the presence of friends as a sign that they were trusted, so that tlio warrior did not fear attack. Asparagus dates back to ancient Greece, where the wild sea plant was probably gathered for food. The idea of luring this plant away from its native sea marshes to grow in our garden by sup- Idying the beds with a sufficient amount of salt is a trick of modern times.
