LAMWATS BIBLE. 1 On a cold and starless March even ing, In the face of a keen northwest wind, we were riding home to the ranch. There was no talk between man and man, but to his mount each spoke a word from time to time a word of encouragement when he lagged or of reproof if he stumbled. Toward 10 o'clock, when nearing the gate of the pasture, a light appeared ahead and ti the left of our course. 'As we came up to the fence we eaw .tiat it was a lantern hung on a fence post some twenty rods off the road, and swinging in the wind. By its fit ful flare a man in a long ulster was digging in the hard soil with a s-hort-Ihandled spade. The man engrossed in his task had mot seen, or, at least, had not noticed us. The loose horee turned in at the gate .struck up a lively gallop; there was a general shaking up of bridle reins and a ringing of spur chains. Up a long hill and down a steep, short one, and we were at the ranch horee, and the grumbling cork was turning out to get us a hot supper. Half an hour later we were well warmed and eating a good meal in the mess-hou.e. "Laraway is digging up his bible again," remarked the cook, as he poured some etrong black coffee hit: tig cups. Frank Laraway was a better man by half the men you know. He had epent as much will power In resisting the drink habit as would suffice to car ry two average men through life in honorable careers, eurrounded bj friends and family, and pass them ra with Al credentials to a better world. On the ranch and range he became a valuable employe, but twice or more each year he would disappear for a time, returning haggard, shrunken and dead broke, and with a fresh deter mination to conquer the appetite. "1 don't want to be go,?d, or great, or rich," said he; "I just want to be my -own boes." It chanced one day that Laraway, then sobering up In a little railroad town, heard a man say: "I am going to swear off this time on the biggest bible In town." He asked if he might go, too. The two men went to a pastor's tudv. and the eertion hand rpnnpr- 'ing him to produce the largest pulpit l.uiDie, was solemnly sworn, with his jfeand on Its open page, to abstain for ever from all intoxicatine heverae-ps. "That is a long while," was Lara way's comment. "Do you keep the bible locked up? asked the Irishman, anxinuslv. "The building is always closed when not in use, replied the paetor. "Whv did vou ask him that?" de manded Laraway, when they had come away. The Irishman marveled at the ones Inn. "Whv. don't vou see?" said he. "It's because if I can't get at the book when the t irst Is on me I can let off." Laraway bought a bible, and he promised himself with his hand upon It that he would taete no liauor for eix months. Then he came home and went to work. He wrote the date in the book, and kept the book In his pocket. He kept the promise to the letter and the day. After that spree he made an entry on the flyleaf, agreeing to abstain for one year. This time he did not carry the brok in his pocket; he took it out en the ranere and burled it. "That crazy Irishman's notion about cettlne let off if he can lay hands on the book don't go for a cent before ine now." said Laraway, "but before the year Is up I'll be a crazy Irishman my. self." He made no eecret of the measures lie took against himself, and when ftome onft nfferpd to kppn the hook tor him In a secret place, said: "It would do no good. If I want"'! It her. 1h ap 'fin nn ennd. Tf T wntpd It when thp an petite is uponi me I d have it if I had to kill my best friend. The one vear nledep nroved too hard in keen. Twice since Ita maktnsr nt In tervals of six or eight months Laraway uaa aug up nis mine, canceled nia pledge and got drunk. To-night wo had seen him overcome for the third time. "Why don't some nf you make a eneak on his bible and cache It where he can't find It?" asked the Kid. "Oh, h would kill the man. that touched it, and get drunk just the came," declared the cook. "Well, I'd liko to see it tried," per sisted the Kid. I "Why not do It yourself?" asked the foreman. "Nobody ie holding you." What, me?" said the Kid, in a snaKy voice; "I'm only a boy," and he went away to bed. I 'As the clock struck for midnight the mess-house door was flung open as I thought by a stronger gust of wind. Turning to look, I found myself look ing into the nozzle of one of Laraway's guns. He stood at the doorway, with his eyes afire and a gun in either hand. "Which one of you dogs has got my bible?" he cried. "It's not in the hole, and I'll give you just ten seconds to produce it." "Now, Laraway," said the foreman, in a smooth tone, "you got the drop on us all right. I tell you it's God's truth that not a man here knows any thing about your bible. We thought you had dug it up and was half way to town by now." It looked as though some one Was going to get hurt. Every man in the room wae looking square at Laraway. And to every man it seemed that the pistols were looking square at himself. The Kid always was sandy and freckled. Half an hour before he had Elunk off to bed. Now, juet at the right moment, he slunk up behind Laraway, jumped on his back like a cat, put both his freckled hands to the man's throat and brought him down. The guns went off through the roof. Mr. Laraway was tied to the bed that night and many nights after. He had a eevere attack of brain fever, from which he came out as weak as a baby. During his convalescence he .never spoke of the bible, and he had an aver sion to liquor. During those days a strong and quiet friendship grew up between Laraway and the Kid. The "old man" wae visiting his ranches this season, and took a great interest in the sick man, told him to go off somewhere and get well and hearty before trying to work again; said his pay would go on exactly as though he were in the eaddle. But Laraway said: "I've no place to go that I like half so well as thij old ranch, and no friends so good as these." So he stayed around camp and made hair bridles and cinches, and read books, and helped tha cook, and did all those things which a oowboy does only when he is invalided. Among the visitors whom the "old man" entertained at the ranch that spring was Mitchell, the famous mind reader. One Sunday afternoon he vol unteered tn show the boys what he could do. We hid objects all over the place and kept him chasing around for an hour. At last Mitchell said: "This Is all dead easy for me; it doesn't amuse me. You all know where these objects are placed, and the trail is hot to them. Now," he said to the Kid, who had been one of the most interested par ticipants, "you fix your mind on some, thing whose whereabouts it known only to yourself and which you don't want me to find." He took the Kid's hands and began to wander around the buildings. Twice he circled the corals, then, getting his bearings, made a bee-line for a small, bowlder-6trewn butte a quarter of a mile away. By this tin he was fairly dragging the reluctant Kid along. The mind reader halted at the first big bowlder and the boys quickly turned it over. The bed of the rock was a rounded hole some three feet deep, and at the bottom lay a small black book Laraway's bible. At sight of it he fell back a step and etood about the whole as solemnly as a grave. The Kid was blubbering. "I didn't mean no harm," said he. Laraway had been in the second rank of those who followed the mind reader up the hill; now he crowded to the front and looked in. "My bible, by God," he cried, and jumped into the hole. As he came out with the book in his hand and strode down the hill without a word to any one, he tore out the fly-leaf, upon which he had written his pledges. I picked it up and kept it as a record of a noble endeavor. We turned our backs on the Kid's cache, now despoiled, and walked slow, ly down fhe hill. For some time there was no comment on the foreman's con clusion. We heard a clatter of hoofs on the hard road as Laraway spurred away toward town. Then the Kid lifted his head (he was ever a stubborn youngster). "I'll save hem yet," he said. San Francisco Argonaut. There is such a thing as taking. too good care of a precious article. A Southern exchange tells of a "cracker" couple who came to a minister to be married. They were to have the ceremony performed with a ring, and the giooiu was terribly afraid he should lose it. So was the(bride, and she kept ask ing: "John, you Fho' v-u "ot that, ring?" "I'm sho' now, Mary." (. "Whar you got it, John?" "I've got it in my mouth. I aint g'sn" to lose it, now." When the ceremony was in progress, and the place was reached where tho ring, was in order, the clergyman eaid: "Let me have the ring, please." The bridegroom gulped, choked, stuttered, and finally exclaimed, de spairingly: , 'Lawshy, I done swallered it!" One f)f the queerest villages known ta In New Guiana, and is called Tupu selel.

(From the Philadelphia Press ) His lifeloDg friend, tht late Samuel Barton, who was also his first cousin once removed, lny very ill at bis home in this city a little while before Mr. Vanderbilt whs himself stricken with apoplexy. They had been play mates and schoolmates. Barton at the boarding school which he and young Vanderbilt attended had been the custodian of his cousin's pocktt money. He was a little older than Cornelius Vanderbilt. Afterward Barton was one of the brokeis for the old Commodore, and he whs es teemed a man of wealth when Corne lius Vanderbilt was drudging as a bank clerk at $50 a week. Mr. Van derbilt heard that Mr. Barton was in some distress of mind, as well as body, and he called upon him. The meeting was like that of men who have been playmates, and they spoke of their sports and of their experi ences at the boarding school, and at last Mr. Vanderbilt very delicately inquired if ther was anything that was causing Mr. Barton anxiety, and his old playmate replied that he was fearful that his estate would not leave his family comfortably provided for. Thereupon Mr. Vanderbilt said, speaking the familiar name of child hood days, "Sam, don't let that worry you." That was all he said, but the next day he deposited in Mr. Burton's Dame a largesumof money, not far from $30,000. When Mr. Barton heard that it seemed to give him peace, and he called his family to him, said that he was content to die, bade them good-bye and then saying, "I am very tired," turned his face to the wall and in a moment was gone.
