Zwickey resigned his office yesterday afternoon, the resignation to take effect at once. His resignation was as follows: Hon. George B. Kandte, Manor of the City of Tacoma, Wa*h.— Drab Sis: I hereby tender you my resignation as chief of police of the city of Tacoma, to take effect to-day. Respectfully, W. F. Zwickey. “Did you request his resignation?” wss ssked the mayor. “I told t)im this morning that I should suspend him if be did not resign at once. There were certain chargee too grave to be overlooked. The council authorized me last night to suspend him if he re fused to resign and I should have taken the reeponsibility of doing so.” “What were the chargee?” “Chiefly that of excessive drinking since his resignation.” The charge referred to is especially Tuesday night, when by common report the chief of police wss disgracefully drunk. In fact it is said, without hesita tion, that Zwickey has been exceedingly addicted to drink since his resignation. Captain Ellis assumes the place of chief of pplice pending the appointment of a permanent chief. The mayor has ten days in which to make his selection, ac cording to the city charter. Captain Ellis is known as a very competent captain, and he would undoubtedly fill the place of chief satisfactorily. (arefiUrih IM.

CHAPTER IV. A hideout old woman ttood before her. Surrounded by her women the Prill oeas Bru, looking henry eyed and weary, reclined upon a divan. Two day* and nights her tear* bad flowed and the beauty of her face was marred. She re alised that her lorer had no chance of escape, and the thought of the dreary life before her well nigh drove her mad. “Why, oh, why did he touch the treach erous winer she would cry out in the •till watches of the night “Why did he raunt my charms and talk of his darling noee? Hamassar, O Hamassar, 1 cannot let yon die." Her women regretted her sad fate, and in gentle ways offered her what consola tion lay in their power. But they made no impression on her bruised and bleed ing heart Their task was fruitless be cause the emperor, distrustful of himself, refused to see his child, or let her plead her lorry’s cause In any way whatever. As Bru reclined that morning listleaa ly upon her couch, and watched the sun beams chase the brilliant colors on tbs rags, her face wore a hopelecs look, as though she had played her last coin on the black and the red had won. At last came forward one of her damsels and stood near the donch "Weep not. fair princess,” first she said, turning kindly eyes upon the em peror's child. •There yet may hp a way to save the prince." “What mean yon. gir XT aahad Bru oddly, though with pome surprise. "De lude me not with fetes end fleeting hopes.” "Hare yon not heard,” continued the maiden unabashed, "of a wise old wo man who Urea in the mountains many miles from here, and watches from hat care the changing stars? Prom the book of nature she learns stnn*e seciuts that we know not of. I hare heard it said that her mind is quick, although bar face is queer. Perhaps this woman could advise you well." "We catch at strpws who drown,* the Prince** Bra. “Send straight for this old crone. And tell the messenger to rid* right hard and bring her back at once.” The day wore on to night, the night to day. and still the princess, sleepless as before, awaited eagerly the coming of the dame. The son arose and shone in splendor on a city plunged in gloom. For the people loved Hamassar, and felt that his doom was hard. In vain they had sent petitions and petitioners to plead before the king. His face retained its sternness, and he refused to hear their plea. High noon had come before the Princess Bra. still listless from her sor row, heard from her woman that the hag was there. “Admit her quickly." said the un happy girl, watching the hangings A hideous old woman stood before her, dry aa a twig and bent with the weight of years. In her eyes, however, burned the light of a searching mind, and one forgot her ugliness when she deigned to ■mile. No obeisance made she as she entered the royal presence, bat, leaning on her stick, awaited the words of Bra. “Yon come from far, good mother. Accept my thanks. You must be weary. Seat yourself upon this conch that you may talk in comfort." The kind worn of the princess seemed to please the aged crone, for she smiled grimly and sank down upon the seat “Must Prince Hamassar die. wise woman?" ssked the emperor's child, her voice trembling as she felt the import of her words. “I cannot tell my child. What do my mountains know about Hamassar? As 1 came hither 1 heard that he had disobeyed your father's late decree.” “ Tie true; but is there no escape? 1 cannot, oh, 1 cannot let him die." She sobbed aloud, and her maidens rushed around her, fanning her devoutly and preesing her to drink. She touched her lips to the cooling water and teemed refreshed. Then calmly to her guest she told the story of Hamassar's fall, and bow it was that his head had not yet fallen from its trunk. In silence the old woman listened, and when the prin cess ceased spoke not a word. After a time she said: “I must ponder this alone and search the stars to-night The law is too se vere, bnt as it seems to me its right in terpretation has not yet been reached. To-morrow I will come to you and may have words to say worthy your royal ears. Till then have hope, for woman’s wit is often potent even where men have failed." So saying she slowly left the room, and the princess wept to see her go. At length the fatal day arrived which brought with it Hamaasar’s final doom. Again the audience hall was thronged. The emperor looked old and ill as he slowly mounted to ' is throne and smiled sadly on his people. Ramek was there, the light of triumph in his eyes and a flush upon his thin and sunken cheeks. The crowd was restless, and guards well armed were scattered through the hall Rumors had reached the king that cer tain lawless spirits had sworn to save the prince. When the culprit, still in chains, was brought before the throne a cheer rang out which reached the crowd outside and was echoed back from the very cen ter of the city. The emperor turned pale, but his month was firm and his eyes glowed with a stern, unshaken par pose. “Silence," he cried, "and let the enter door be closed I” Then he arose and said: "A woman’s voice pleads far a hearing before the doom of Prince Ha msssar shall be known. Reluctantly my royal promise I have given that my daughter should address the court” There was a buss of excitement in the hall Ramek looked surprised, and Ha maasar’s gloomy face betokened a psn ing interest in these words. After a moment a side door opened, and the Princess Bn>, surrounded by her court entered the hall. She looked superb Rich robes and jewels added to the beauty of her face and form, and a mur mur of admiration broke from the mo bile throng. Ramek sprang forward and offered her his arm. but she haugh tily waved him aside. One glance she east upon Hsmasssr full of love and cheer, than proudly advanced toward the throne. Never before had the princess carried herself so well in her father's sight He looked upon her with pride, and as she bowed before him snflled down upon her with affection. “She is every inch a queen,” he said to himself. “Even if Ramek had not made his speech a week ago it would hare been a shame to wed her to a man without a nose.” Standing alone npon the dais from which orators addressed the court the princess gazed calmly before her. There was not a tremor in her face, and she awaited patiently the cessation of the noise her appearance had produced. At length she spoke: "By the kindness of my king 1 am allowed to stand here for a moment to speak a few words in defense of Prince Hamassar. Well do 1 know that the greatest lawyers of the realm hare pro nounoed his case defenseless. Well do I know that his sentence, once pro nounced, is now again to bo affirmed. Why come I then to raise a woman’s ▼oice where men whose tongues am bold refuse to stand? Why do I lay aside the modesty of sex and reverse the customs of our land? Because 1 lore Hamassar, do yon say? No, be cause 1 lore the right, and would not see my king and name disgraced. Per know yon all that the execution of the prince would be in full defiance of all law. Tour patience for a moment and Fll explain. What is the nmpom of the decree against which Prince Hamassar erred? , Isit not that lathis mighty empire the egotist and boaster may hare no place? Has Ha mmer, unto the moment of hte un lucky speech, besn given to the behoof a braggart? Ton who know him least know that his modesty has been famed seen in the distant corners of the earth. Whatthsn? His sudden exhibition of conceit had some peculiar cams. Be was aa egotist by chance, not by habit, and when he spoke that night the gam bols of his tongue were due to wine. Now follow me close. The spirit of the law is said to be the guidance of ocr courts. Does this decree in spirit urge the death of one whose modesty and rank have joined to make him an ex ample to the people of this land? No, ten thousand times! The spirit of this de cree calls out for the removal of that which caused the prince's falL If ha is modest when himself deprive him then of all intoxicants and his humility will still bs as a star to guide our youth. Cut off his wine, neither his nose nor head. So much for that Now, let me say a word to those who talk of precedent and in sist upon the letter of the law.” Here she looked at Ramek. “Prince Ha massar has already fulfilled the harsh de mands of this decree. What do 1 mean, you ask. Just this. Did be remember one word of what he said? Can hs now recall hit boastful speech? No. This proves, beyond all question, that before he left his board he had lost his head. Now, a man cannot be punished twice for a single crime. Having once lost his head because of the wine he drank, the state has now no claim upon his person. Thus do 1 bold that if he takes a pledge to abstain from all intoxicants the spirit of the law will rest in peace. The letter of the same, as I have shown, is now forever dead so far as Prince Ha massar is concerned," Surprised applause, wUch had broken out now and then daring the young wo man’s speech, became a mighty roar as ths ceased. Cheer after cheer arose, and had it not been for the guards ths people would have raised Hr-nassar in their arms and carried him straightway from the hall. “The game is lost," mattered Ramek to himself as he slunk from the palace and fought his way through the crowd out side. “I wonder where that woman got her points." There is little more to tell. The em peror, overjoyed to hear his daughter's words, released the prince at once, and in a month possessed a son-in-law whose nose remained in its accustomed place. And to this day the descendants of Ha maasar, still mighty men in the east, ab stain from wine. “Hamassars never smile,” is an oriental proverb, the origin of which yon have jnat read. THK END. Sheep end Cattle. Gan mutton be more cheaply produced than beef? As bearing upon this subject Stewart calls attention to the fact that the sheep is a source of double income meat and wooL He refers, too, to the experiments of Sir J. B. Lawes in refer ence to the percentage of food utilised or stored up by different animals, and these experiments presented the sheep in a very favorable light. Of the dry food consumed he found that sheep stored up increased weight 18 per cent, while cab tie only laid up in increased weight 8 per cent—that is, eight and one-half pounds of dry food increased the live weight of cattle. So that, relying upon theee experi ments, sheep must be considered ss ex cellent utilizers of food, ss producing as many pounds of mutton, besides the wool, from a given quantity of food, as can be produced of beef; and as the best mutton brings as high a price as the beef, it would appear on this basis the •beep would give the fleece as extra profit over cattle. If this is not too fa vorable a view, the sheep on suitable lands must be considered among the most profitable of farm stock. It is true the dairy cow brings her profitable flow of milk to offset that of wool; but the dairy cow does not lay on flesh while producing milk, as does the sheep while producing wool A fleece of five pounds of weed grown in a year requires only a daily growth of one-fifth of an ounce, which can take but a small portion of food to produce. The mineral matter taken from the soil by the fleece is only 1.6 ounces per year, and if six half mut ton sheep represent a cow, the whole mineral constituents taken by the six fleeces would only be 0.9 ounces, and about 1.0 pounds of nitrogen, while the ordinary cow, yielding 4,000 pounds of milk, would take twenty-six pounds of mineral matter or ash and twenty-five of nitrogen, or forty-three times as much mineral matter and thirteen times as much nitrogen as the fleeces of the sheep. —Stockman.

DRIV FROM HOUR I was resting on a log at a tun to the road wUch ran along the Yadkin river, with half a mile of the stream la full sight, when I caught sight of a canoe com ing down. It appeared to have broken adrift, and as toe current set it directly toward the marshy spot to front of me I waited and watched with soma interest The craft Anally drove into the reeds and cams to a standstill, and a minute later a man's head slowly appeared to view. It waa the head of a real Uvu na tive-long haired, sallow faced. Ugh cheek bones, unkempt whiskers and yel low teeth. The heed regarded me with surprise for a time, and then a body came into view. Its long arms, dun col ored garments, talon Uks finger nails, stoop shoulders and long neck proved the presence of a native “cracker.” Be gazed and I gazed, and aa he did not seem inclined to be the first to break the silence I finally said: “Ballot What are yon doing there?" “Stranger, Pve bin driv from hum!” he replied, In a voice so full of sorrow that 1 could almost see a burying ground behind Um. He need a piece of board to paddle the craft ashore. A closer inspection re vealed that he was the essence of sorrow and dirt boiled down and caked haid. He was six feet tall, loom jointed, lanky and evidently aa lazy aa ha was long. Had I been sore that he was 1,000 years old I would have bet one dollar to a shil ling that he had not combed his hair or washed his face for 090 yean. He held out a paw like a washboard, and greeted me with: “Stranger, eh! Well, old Bill Smith bids ye welcome. Las’ nite hs had a hum to taka ye to. and « cheer to sot oat far ye. and some pone and bakon to offer ye, but this mournin' he kin only •hake ye by the hand. All is gone all is gone." “Has some calamity happened?” 1 asked. “Some calamity has. I've been driv from hum, stranger. 1 hain't got no place to lay my head no more, ’oept in that thar leaky canoe.” “That’s bad.

Mar ried her more’n seventeen yean ago. and we’ve got five children, and last nite she driv me from hunt” “Yon had a fuss, 1 suppose?" “Furse? Fume? No, we had no fuse. She jist lit down on me and polled hair and clawed, and said she’d stood it loon enough. She driv me out In the cold world, and 1 went to bed in the canoe, east her adrift and fere I am, stranger.

Don’t stand by and see a husband and father driv from his hum.” We got into the canoe, and he need the paddle in a vigorous manner. 1 sized him up as a lazy, good natured native, and it wasn't long before he “gave him self away.” “Ar* ye a lawyer?" he asked as we drove along up the river. “Something of one.” "Good! I was In hopes yon was. Yon can argify the ole woman In ten min utes." "What made the fnaST “Jist a notion o’ hem. 1 haint well and cant work, and she’s got a notion 1 orter. Jist tell her that I look like a man who won’t live a year. Tell her that hard work would break me down in a week. Tell her you never frit so sorry for any one in ysr hull life." We voyaged along for awhile in si lence, and than 1 noticed that the man wee weeping. Be wiped the teen away and asked: “Stranger, was ye ever driv from hum?" “Never.” "Thcn ye dodt know how it breaks a feller down. In argifying with Selntha jist menshun that 1 wept, won’t ye? She’s heavy on teen.” We landed at the bank below Smith's cabin about noon. He dedded to re main in the canoe until 1 should go up and “argify." I cut across a field to the road and approached the house from the front At the door was a broken gun and three or four steel traps, which had been pounded out of shape. 1 also saw a splintered powder horn and an old fur cap, and there was a faint smell of whisky from some broken glass. 1 found Mrs. Smith to be a nervous little woman of 40, and the five children were like a pair of stairs in height I was very kindly received, and after a little I made bold to say: "1 met Mr. Smith -about six miles down the road.” “Whatl My ole Bill, the onery muler demanded the wifa^ “Tea, ma'am.” "And didn’t ye shuts at himT “Oh, no."

It has been estimated that 1,900,000,000 feet of lumber was cut In Washington last year, the cut of logs amounting to about 600,000 feet.
