No ono over know whoro tho child
came from, ot evtjn its name.
Ono day a sloop freighted witli brick
was unloading up town, and a Landon
deck was tossing bricks, two by two,
to another man on Ibu dock. All of a
sudden H wee little chap, not moro than
2 years obi, carno toddling along, got
right in tho way, and was knocked over
by tho Hying bricks.
Hill Forster, who was handling tho
load, was a rough mar.. It had not
been exactly his fault that tho child had
been kuockoil down, still ho felt very
sorry for it. Tho littlo fellow's head
was badly cul, and Lo was stunned.
He was carried into tho cabin of tho
sloop, and there lay tpiito motionless.
The Captain of tho sloop sent to tho
police station, and tho surgeon came.
Tho child waa carefully examined.
Tho surgeon said the caso might Lo a
sorious ono and that the littlo Loy Lad
bettor Lo taken to thu hospital. Forstor
had a sister, who worked in a laundry,
and at onco Lo sont for lier. Molly
Forster hurried dowu to tho wharf,
took tho child in hor lap, and listonod
breathlessly to wbat tho surgeon said.
Tho caLin of tho Lrick sloop was not
a handsomo placo to look ut. It waa
dirty and slovenly, Lot and close.
Molly Forster set about making it tilly.
Sho opened tho little windows of tho
cabin, and kept off tho crowd who
were swanning in tho narrow quarlors.
She fanned the child,laid it on a coarse
pillow, having lirst spread Lor clean
apron ovorit.und bathed the poor baby's
hoad, trying to stancb Hie How pf Llood
from tho wound. "If," said tlio sur
f;eon, "you could koop tho cliild por
ectly tpiiet for a while it would Lo all
for the bettor. 1 am afraid to joli aim
in tho ambulance Maybe he will como
to botot o long. It is rather cooler Lere
on tho river than in tlio Lot wards of a
hospital. Can you tako ohargo of him
until I come Lack? I will see you this
evening." Molly had already torn up
her handkerchief and bandaged the
child's head. Now she followed tho
surgeon's directions. The doctor was
a humane man, for when ho left lie ?nil
a half dollar Into Molly's hand ami told
her to buy some ice lo cool thc water
sho was using on tho bandages.
Molly Forster fanned and fan nod
that little stillerer, anti balbi... its hoad,
and was tender with the child. About
sunset tho surgeon carno again, ami
just then the cliild opened bis ?tye?.
"VVoll, that's a good sign." Bald tho
doctor. "Now hadn't you better ad
vertise him since no one has como for
Lim? .Somebody will claim him, I
suppose. 1 can arrange for you to keep
Lim if you want to. "
Although tho accident was reported
in two brief lines in all the noWspapors,
mid notwithstanding the efforts of tho
police to lim! tho parents o? tho child,
no ono ever came for it All that night
Molly Forster nursed the child. Occa
sionally Hill would push his hard-lit.ed
and weather-beaten face into tho cabin
window anti look wistfully at tho littlo
child. Ho never Wont to sleep that
night, but kept walking up and down
tho deck. At daybreak ho said to
Molly in a hoarse whisper: "Molly,
tako that kill to your room. It's got
to ho done. "
Hill Forstor, who was a man of 10, I
Jiavo said was rough, 1 do nut know
how it happons, but handling bricks
...Tm i to niako pooplo ooarso ami rath
er brutal. Hill would tako not only
ono glass o? whisky, Lut as litany as Lo
could (bink. Mixing with k crowd of
mon worao than Lo was wild lretpiont
od rumshops, ho was mud) given to
lighting, and his face was ai ofton as
not digligurud with a Llack evo or a cut
lip. Hill earnod about a dollar and a
quarter a day, and when thc week was
up Lo never had a penny loft Perhaps
if Hill had not Leon a little drowsy and
stupid that morning fiona too much
liquor tho day beforo w h.; the littlo
chap got in thc way Lo (Hill) would
havo Loon moro careful Loh Lo throw
his bricks.
Tho wook after Molljhad taken

Molly working as Lard M [tho could at
tho wash board or tLo ir?ning board,
oarning 70 cents a dav, add feeding tho
child. That shamed Hill. It happen
ed thal tho littlo Loy's short frock had
boon stained with blood., Molly Lad
carefully washed it, ba still Hill
thought ho saw stains on. it and that
worrfod him sick.
{vjont \vook, whoa ho BIS? h|s sister,
who was waiting on tho faiarf for 1dm

"li's lulgllty good ol you, Hill -and

On tho next trip up tito North Uiver
Hill Forster pondered a great deal over
tho child. Tim fact is, the chilli, wheth
er he was awake or asleep, was mi Vu I'
for a moment oui of Hill's mind. Ile
had never thought much aootll any
thing before, and it was hard work lor
him lo think al nil. Maybe bcC.iUso
for more than one-half ot lite his brain
had been muddled by liquor ho hail
never set il working. As Hie empty
sloop Honied up the broad river, slow
ly moving with tho lido, Hill .sal in ibo
shade of the Happing jib ami argue !
with himself, and tie; general conclu
sions ho arrived at Were by no means
fluttering to himself.
"Tho beginning and tho ending uf
this hero is rum. I've wastell nigh on

the kid on her. Maybe you'll be hunt
ing around fol* more bailies to knock
over with bricks you good-for-nothing
lounging Portuguee."
When Hill ll ul cabed himself a Port
uguese he had poured the last drop
from his private vial of wrath on his
own bead. Hid helped to load Ibo
sloop with brick ?it llaverstrnw, and
although it was a hot, sultry ?lay and
tho work was heavy, he never took a
drink. Thu other hands might come
back, smacking their bpi and banter
ing him, but he stood linn.
"No i.se, boys," said Hill. "I did
the business for that baby and once is
enough. 1 have got to tako keer of
him. It stands lo reason. Nono of
you is family men like me. 1 kin stand
OjS lunch running as the best of you,
but don't you try and rub it lu too
steep! I hain't the reputation id being
sweet-tempered, and inebbo I kin teach
some of you manners."
Il must bo stated that there really
was no necessity for Bill's excited
words, for tho hands on tho sloop .seem
ed to take in Hie situation at once, and
rather respected the way Hill assumod
his self-imposed duties.
Down Hie river Hill was thinking
what mime Ibo child ought to have.
Should it bo Goorgo Washington, Ulys
ses Grant, or Moses? He knew all tho
names of tho .steamboats going up to
Albany, and to call the child "Albany"
or "Vibbard" was suggested to him.
Al last hu made up his mind that Molly
should have tho naming of Ibo child,
"She's got most rights to him, any
ways." Then hu fell kind of melan
choly willi thu idea that somebody
might COIUO later and claim the child.
Hill bad never road a story book in his
life, so no romance of a rich father and
mother coining in a carriage to demand
their lost baby presented itself to his
Hill became parsimonious, and that
week saved almost every cent of ! is
wages. Ile begrudged himself evo?
tho tobaCOO ho chowed. Uti only kent
BUilioioat money for his most meagre
wanls. Hu never look a drink and de?
clinod being troalod. To Molly he gave
his money.
Sure enough, the little boy, when
Hill next saw lum, had ou a now frock,
and with what pride Molly exhibited
him to her brother!
"He just looks like a daisy, Molly.
Isu'l he pretty! Kind of sleepy, ain't
lie, Moll) P"
"Ho does sleep a gooil deal, but
that's natural, Hill. Much you know
about barnes! Hut, Hill, what's this

if lo return the handful of silver.
"Hut, Moll, just hold hard a minuto,

tho child would gain Strength. The
cicatrice on the head had unite healed.
"Slowly the little boy seemed lo acquiro

tho tlltto fellow's adopted mother was

Tho child w.is more awake now.
This change delighted Molly. It never
was fretful. The child would lay quiet,
with its blue eyes wide open for hours,
wit amii a whimper.
So il went oil for another week or
two. Hill, who was always coining
and going, when ho loft New York for
a Irin Up ibu river, was happy, for tho
child was bettering la.t, so lie believ
lt was nu October evening when, as
the brick sloop was being brought, up
to thu Wharf, I5;ll saw Mo.ly h aning
against one of thc big woo iou posts of

hawser, hut at once he saw that his
sister did not have tho child in her

Hill choked down bl*grief-be seem

it was so cool thal Molly bad been
afraid to bring thc child willi ber.
"Hill," suid Molly, sobbing, "tho

that caine under my observation last

This is no railroad yaru, but a fact. I

we wore running along ami 1 wai in

she'd stop tue train with hor eyes that
wo were unable to do with our brakes.
At lirst wo woco all so broke up wo

as if she'd beeu at home. She was
none loo quick, though, for her littio

petrated by cowboys," said tito agent,
.'but 1 will toll you of a lillie incident
whoro tho wind WAS taken oat of three
cowboys by a determined, fearless
'tenderfoot.' lt happened only last
?pring. 1 WAH thoa station agent and
telegraph operator for the Northern
Paeitie Railroad company at a place
near thu Montana line, lt was not
much of a place, ns it consisted only
of a depot, a house or two, and a sa
"One morning a traveling man ar
rived at the depot by singo from up
north somewhere. Ho bad a small
sample-case and sachet. Ho was be
low medium height mid rallier ?dight,
but was very Heatly dressed and wore
n silk hal. Ho was travelin?: for a
New York jewelry house. He was
about an hour early for the traill east,
and hu opened his grip on ibo plat
form, took out a brush, and dusted his
clolhlng and shoes. Ho thoa drew out
an old newspaper, leaned up against
tho sido of tho depot willi ono foot pro
jected iii trout of Ibu oilier, am! began
"Motin while, however, three cow
boys liad sauntered up to the depot.
They nil oved him closely and watched
his operations. When he bogan read
ing they huddled together and talked
awhile iu au undertone. Present ly one
of them-a big six-footer-left thu
group and bogan lo haunter carelessly
about tho platform with bis head in
the air inspecting thc posters on lito j
building and lite cornice. When he ?
got around whore tho traveling man
stood, bo lifted his big brogan and
planted it ti rm ly on the jewelry man's
loot. No apology was niano. Tlio
traveling mau merely looked up, drew
his foot back a moment, then placed it
back where it was. Tho cowboy pass
ed back to the other two. They all
chuckled and joined in tho low-toued
"Soou tho cowboy started out again
on a similar round, gaping at thc roof.
When ho roached tho traveling man hu
tried to bring down his coarse bool on
the extended foot. The traveling man
?'irked his foot back suddenly, and tho
trogan carno down with a thump on
tho platform. Another conference and
chuckling followed. Finally tho cow
boy set out on the third round, dust
as ho was about to raise bis foot to
plant it ou that of tho traveling man,
tho lnttor looked up quickly and said:
*' 'Seo hero, there is my foot, and it's
going to stay there. You step on it,
if you want to, but I want to tell you
that bofore you can gol oil' of it 1 will
kill you.'
"Such a volley staggurod tho cow
boy, lie looked at tito foot, und Iben
at the small possessor, and finally
moved oil without stepping on it. An
other consultation followed.
"Tho traveling man calmly read his
Kiper a tow minutes, and thea took
om his sache! three apples. Ho look
sd at thom a moment, and suddenly
threw them a fuw feot into the air and
thou ?pilek ly drew a rovolver, tired
three shots, splitting eacii apple into a
do/o.n piceos boforo tlioy reached the
fground. Ho replaced tho cartridges
a the empty chambors of tho rovolver,
and returned it to his pocket.
"Tho cowboys witnossod tho act
without saying a word, and soon, com
plotoly cowed, turned aud loft tho de
pot. Tho travoling man told me after
they left that ito would have killed the
three of thom had tho fellow stepped
on his foot again, and 1 think he would,
as ho was quick as lightning. He
thoa showod mu n medal ho carried,
which ho won as being tho most rapid
and ono of tho best shots in New York.
Tho story simply illustrates that thcro
is sometimos a great deal of fictitious
valor and daring about tho cow hoy."

Paris As To Health.
In health, Paris is on a levol with a
hundred othor pinces. It has nothing
of its own tu oti'or. Its climate pr?
sents a fair averago of tho qualities and
faults of contral Continental woathor;
the air is drier and more vivifying than
that of England; extremes of hnnt and
cold are sometimos folt, but they aro
unfrenuout; strong wiuds aro ram; und
though fogs have become somowhat ac
climatized of late yoars, the air is on
tim wholo fairly bright and .pleasant.
Ullt tho same atmosphere may bo found
almost evurywhoro along the same par
allel of latitude. The sanitary condi
tions aro good; tim sewerage is excel
lent; tho water is abundant and puro,
and tho precautions against infection in
all Us forms aro minute and well ap
plied. Tho material coud it ion , of lifo
aro, howovor, growing so much nbko
in al), largo towns that we are living
evorywhore under moro and moro sim
ilar influences, and it may bo said wilb
out much inexactness that, so far ns
Europo is conoornod, what used to bo
called (?specially a hoalthy or unhealthy
place ls becoming difficult to find. Kpl
douiies como and go in -Paris as they
do in other centres of population, but
they are seldom traceable to local
causes, and usually nsstimo a general
oharaeter. Rut ali these qualities aro
merely negativo; they imply thu an
?once of objections, not tho presence of
recommendations; Puris posseMoa no
Eositivo advantages in climate or
.sith, and English people will not bo
tempted to live in it for reasons of that
