Crime was ram pant everywhere in the city, and there wag a loud outcry against the police for not putting an end to It. Tha evils complained of could not be localized In any particular quarter, they seexed to be smeared all over, emanating, or belching out. howeTer, from certain well-known center, or "tough" precincts along the river. Of Deer Flanagan's beat was In the wornt of one of these "alum" districts, but the strangest thing about It was the fact that at night it was the quietest and most orderly portion of the city. As he explained to the chief, who pri vately grumbled because be did sot "ran in" a patrol wagon load of sus picious character every sight: "Tie at night I'm on duty. Chief, an dlvQ a bide or a hair of the ugly birds is to be then found in the dirty nest. They're all over beyond In the respectable quarter plunderln' bens' nests V lootin' family diamonds. Ton wouldn't bave me leave my beat to fol low them in their wanderin's?" "Certainly pot," replied the chief, severely, "that might cost yon your Job." "Then, how the divil am I to run In tbem as are not in my beat?" The chief laughed. "Toa"re too easy with the toughs. Flanagan. Too must be more severe. 1 am told you act more like a grand papa than a policeman. It will not do; job must be harsh. Kindness will "You're too easy, Flanagan!" sever reform the criminal classes, of ficer. Make a record of arrests; run n wagon load occasionally to satlxfy the public clamor." "May the dlvll seize me if I turn brute to satisfy what the chief calls 'public clamor,' " muttered Flanagan as he left his chief. "They're poor, an' live In dirt an' vulgarity, but that doesn't make them criminals. Tut them In Kxd clothes, give them de cent food an' drink, an" K-t tbem ride in automobiles, an' they'd be as fine as the felleys a is iuakln the public clamor, begobs!" When he went on duly that night. Officer had made up his mind to be very sever and know neither friend nor to. "I'll exterminate the best by depopulate' it. Tla Die only way I know. I'll run In every rapacal lion I can lay my hands on." And be walked along, flerrely swinging bis club, in deep meditation, (suddenly a violent push from bt-hlnd tixarly upset him, and, turning quickly, be made a grab, catching a small, elSaa girl by the arm. "I bave one already, begobs What do ye mean by asaaultln' tb majesty of the law? Tis high treason you're om mitt In'," and he said in what was Intended to be a wry severe tone of voice, but there was a humorous twinkle in his eye as he recognized bis llule crony, Patsey. If anybody bad called her Patricia. which was truly her real uaiue, she would not have fainted, for she was not one of the fainting kind, but she would have considered the language as some new kind of abuse, and re sented it with a handful of mud, of which there was plenty within easy reach. The child was hardly 10 in years, but an adult la precocious knowledge. 6b was more than comely, sue was positively pretty hen her face was clean and her lovely hair free from tangle and sntrls. Out In her usual aijuslid rags, unkempt hair and her face resembling that of young eagle peering through a dust brush, she was as ugly as sin and a hateful as aa tar runt drnron. Flans ran. however, he 4 -n Into. the li.rt ft Ihe llftlo maid, and be rlif i !,;i-(1 her. FNe lived, or ratlier etlstal, donn a ilatnp. filthy cellfcr, with au ol I croue who was not her mother, but ho had stolen her anmrwr.era and thought to make her ineful, and who sjient more time in admlnlatrrlng Mows to force her to grow up crooked than In train ing her Infant mind In the direction of a higher lite. Talsey wa evidently going to the dogs, but she was not war of that fart, nevor having known anything be'.ler than hr pres ent surrounding. the had no regard for the law a penttnlflfl by tb po lice, and therefor did not scruple to take liberties with It dignity. "Fatsey, my darlin'. I've mind ta run ye In. Tl the order from head quarters, an' I may as well begin with ye since y have put youiit In the way of it. How would J like that, mavourneen?" "Fine," answered Fatsey, dancing with gle, "A nice warm corner In the lock-up hot breakfast in the morn ing, and nobody to lick me. Come on, cop." And she thrust her small hand into hi big ono, endeavoring to pull him to the patrol box. Flanagan looked down quizzically at the small, eagar creature who waa "Come en, copl" smiling up at him fearlessly and danc ing about with Joy at the very Idea of being run in aa disorderly charac ter. "Easy tow, chicken, ye havent the Idea in mind. Ill not run ye into the lock up, but into better quarters," said, he, following an Inspiration. "How would ye like to go home with me, Patsey, an' be one of my little ones? I have two already, an I yearn for third. Te shall have your All of good eatln' an' drinkln', no beatin's, an' go to school. What do ye say, my girl?" Patsey' eye grew large with aston ishment, and pushing back her elfin locks, for all answer, she pressed her tender lips upon his great, rough band. The mute appeal almost broke the big man' heart, and he brushed his eye with the back of hi free hand. Taking her np In his arms, he said: "Be ready, darlln'. In the morn when I go off duty. Ill come an' get ye an' have brush with the old wom an for ye." She pressed her cheek close to his In token of affection and thus he carried her to the corner of the alley and sat her down, bidding her be good and go to sleep without any more rampaging about. Mrs. Flanagan was as bad aa her husband In such things. "Tl only one more small mouth to 0)1, an' we'll Oil it, please 'God. Now, away yon to bed. Mike, an' by the time ye are ready for duty this night. Ml have the child made over so that you'll not know her." Patsey' line had Indeed fallea ta pleasant place. She soon forgot her coarseness and vulgarity In the pur surroundings of home, and. animat ed by the force of good eiamplea, he soon became a model young lady. She was treated as one of the family, and her tractabiUty.and amiable disposi tion captured the heart of every one with whom she came in contact. Her vivacity and beauty attracted the at tention of many, who wondered why Flanagan had a daughter so different from the rest of the family. "Faith, lis all hereditary Influence." he ei plained. "There" my old wom an Klien, she' not beauty, but her hrart Is, au' as for myself, I'm Just what ye see, an' two of my girl take "IVe mind te run yo In." after us. Did ye ever se my great afreet grandmother? No, eh? Well, she waa grand; she waa the beauty tf the whole county, an' tl from her that my Patsey draws her look." II said this so often la ail sertousnea that be oot only made other believe it, but he actually believed it him self. liut turning point came la Pat sey' life. A bl!dle wotaaa of mean had often aoUooa tb bright, vivacious girl, aod, waatlag a pnlon. ar-proarhed Mlrha! and ' wife on tha mil-jvrl. "What, n five vip m own flesh so blood! I m astonished, nia'ain, that ye should snake me such proposi tion!" "Nonnense," s'tld the lady with a perity, "ahe Is no more your than h Is mine, Vc plcktd her up umewbwr in Jour round. It was Jewel you found, to he sure, but I can better af ford to give her future than you. Giv her th chance, man. Eh d serves It at your hands." Then th whole story csm out, and th lady was more determined than ever to have the girl, believing that bin blood wa in her veins. Finally. Michael and hi wlf submitted to th tain of separation for th good of th child. Bh herself refused and threatened to run away and hid la the slum If they tried to fore her to leave her "cop," aa she aiway called Flanagan. Hut geutl persua sion accomplished the desired result, and eh at last consented to b good and go with the lady. "Remember, Patsey darlin'," said Flanagan In his last Interview with hi pet, "I am always your father." "You and no other shall ever find that place In my heart," ahe said a ah broke from his arms and ran away sobbing a If her heart would break. Many year passed, and Flanagan did uot hear from h.s lost Fat&ey. That wa part of th hard bargain wrong from him by the lady who adopted her. "Some time you will meet her, but better let ber alone so as not to spoil her future," wa what the lady said. By and by reverse cam to th good man; flrat, his faithful compan ion went, then hi daughters; one af ter th other waa stricken down by the great destroyer, until Flanagan, left alone, became Indeed negligent through OTer-much brooding. Instead of stern policeman running In wag on loads of unfortunates to satisfy th public clamor to suppress crime, he waa the guardian, comforter and con soler of the afflicted, sorrowful and heavy laden In hi beat. At last he was charged with being shlelder of criminals, and as he made no defense. he was "broken," as everybody had predicted he would be. This cost him his right to pension, and very soon he became dependent and fell 111. HI later, the Widow Malone. a woman of pare means, took In washing and Ironing and went out occasionally to do day' work, thus managing to keep the wolf from the door. She would not hear to Michael' being seat to the County hospital. "Not while I have the breath In me body to earn penny shall Mike be taken from me. Tl he that ought to be ltvtn' In palace. Hospital, In deed!" The sick man, who wa really suf fering decline occasioned by sor- "Run, Mary, to Patsey!" row. thought of Patsey continually. "She's the only one living of alt, an' she'll come to her old father soon." By and by this thought grew upon bias until be Died the date tor her re turn to his arm. "Shell b ber m Christmas morn," he told everybody who came to ee him. and on Christ ma morning he awoke early and called to his sister: "Mary! I dreamed of little Patsey last night; three times I dreamed ol her. I thought she wa here. Wher bar you hid her, Mary?" he demand ed querulously. "Fetch her to me Mary. My heart aches to see her." "Faith, your Palaey's like all th ret ye spent good money on. TheyX ail forgotten y In )uur iued." "No, no, Mary, Patsey woutd nevet forg-t IlNteQ. Mry," and he bold up bis flngir. "The sound of wheels they stop at the door run, Mary, 'tl Pataey, mavourneen." The door flew oien and In rushed lovely, magnificently dressed young lady, who literally cast herself upo the sick man, hugging and kissing bint while weeping tears of Joy. Flanagan thought he wa dreaming, for h lay stilt som moment sub mitting to the drllclous caresses, but by and by his brain cluard and b awoke to the reality. "i'aUcy, acuabla. they're all gon but you, an' you did c4 forget?" "Never, never, dvareal father," obbed th glrL "Patsey, do y mind that tl Christ mas mora. Let us glv thanks, Patsey darlin'." Which they did In each ether' arm. "Mary, I think 111 get up an' hav turkey dinner. !'v not bad on foi year." "And FN hav It with you." Bald Pataey.

(Star mark location of Gulf of Darlan, where Colombian troop are said to hav bn landed to march to Panama ) RECONCILED IN A HOSPITAL. Old-Tim Animosities Forgotten In Presence of Misfortune. In the early day of North Dakota Senator iud La Moure and Aleiacder McKenxle, the latter famous as the most daring sheriff in Bismarck, wer hitter personal and political enemies. Whatever on wanted done wa sure to be opposed by the other, and they carried their enmity to each other to great and sometimes ridiculous i- treme for men level-headed they were In ordinary matter. Each had host of friends and these wer arrayed in hostile camps, political, so cial and business. The two men hav become reconciled, fcwever. Som time ago McKenzle got into trouble In Alaska, and narrowly escaped prison sentence for contempt of local Judge, from whose Jurisdiction the Blsmarckian remored a prisoner. After a hard fight McKenzie waa re leased and returned east, broken In health.' For months he has been ly ing in St. Paul hospital, hovering between life and death and deserted by a majority of his former frlend. Here his old enemy, 1-a Moure, found him and at once took up bis station at the bedside of the stricken man, min istering to hi every want with the solicitude of mother. Mainly owing to La Moure's careful nursing McKeu lie is recovering hi health and ex pects to leave the hospital In a week or two, when hi old time dverary will escort blm to Blxmarck. It I safe to say that the friendship thu eatabllshed wtll never be broken. Mc Kenzle few year ago wa perfect specimen of physical manhood, stand ing 6 fwet 4 inchtts and being bulit in proportion.

Ight Bao ttrla for th Soil to Be Furnlshsd te Farmer from Wasnington, Bacteria for th Farm. For the' past hundred year agricul tural chemist have been asking tbe question whether It were possible to utilise the free nitrogen of tb atmos phere a th food ot plants, and they all ern to have Come to the conclu sion that the nitrogen of the air Is not analmllated by plants. But It was dis covered that certain leguminous crop (peas, bean, etc.) had an excea of nitrogen over that which could be ac counted for a coming from the rsla water and from the manures supplied to tbe land. Experiments subsequent ly proved that this assimilation of nitrogen depend upon tb presence ot certain bacteria which cause swell ings on tbe roots of the plant, and that each particular leguminous plant can be Identified with a certain micro organism which thus beneficially af fects Its growth. Photographs hav been published showing how plant which have been Inoculated with suit able, bacteria have benefited by tha operation. The agricultural depart ment of the United States bas for long time been in the habit of dis tributing rare seeds gratultounly to farmers; now It Is announced that it ia prepared In like manner to piece at the disposal of agriculturists bac teria for enriching the soil.
