MASHER RAN FOUL -OF RUFUS Six-Foot Country man Rudely Stops Dapper Yonnsr Man's t' n wel come Attentions. ' A dapper . young man, whose name has not been ascertained, .alighted at the East Orange (N. J.) station yesterday afternoon from a train bound toward Dover.. He held in his hand a ticket which certified that be had paid passage from Newark to MonistoWn. Apparently he did not want to go to Morrtstown on that train. He did not look happy and be soowled darkly at the rear-end brakeman as the train moved out of the station. The brake- man on his part laughed heartily. It waa all because Rufua Joseph of Sue- casunna had "kem daown f m th' kentry to take a look aboout taown in Newark." He was going home yesterday afternoon on the same train with the disgruntled one. Rufua is broad of shoulder and thick of arm and leg. He haa a. good Yankee jaw and a kindly disposition. On the station platform In Newark, Rufua saw a frail Up of a girl, perhaps 17 years old, . bidding her mother farewell. The girl carried, a valise and a bunch of flowers, was very unsophisticated and looked la If she were going up to the country to see grandma. ' Rufus Joseph said to himself that the girl waa entirely too young to travel alone and vowed he would keep his eye on her. The train rolled In and mother and daughter bade each other a tearful farewell. The girl got aboard. ' So did Rufus and the dapper young man. Rufus took a seat at the rear of the car and the girl one about the center. The dap per young man walked up to the seat the girl had taken and asked her if it waa en gaged. She replied that it waa not The young man sat down beside her and at once opened a rapid fire conversation. The girl answered once or twice In evident be wilderment and then turned and looked out of the window. This did not worry the masher in the least and he continued to talk.' At Rosevllle the girl arose and said I think I will sit on the other side of the car." . , "I think It is better over there," said the stranger; "let's go there." Rufus Joseph had been taking It all In, and when the girl looked helplessly around he unhooked his six feet two inches of majesty and awkwardness and strode down the car. . "You'd better go up front," said he dls passionately io the stranger. "A-h-h, run away little boy and don't be so fresh," was the retort Rufus smiled and placing a large hand on the shoulder of the youth, said: "You git up In ther front car right away d n quick 1" Tha masher seemed to rise up in air and float Into the next car. "You set where yer are, Bis, and yer won't be bothered no more,", said Rufua Joseph. As far as the passenger coach was concerned the matter ended there. But Rufus Joseph was not through. He went Into tha smoking car, where the stranger had gone. "Gentlemen." said Rufus Joseph, raising hla voice intil. It rose above the noise of the car, "I wish to direct your attention to this here thing In the seat. (He emphasised "thing.") It's a masher, If you ain't never seen one before. He was jest drove from a rear car for- annoying a young girl who didn't have no one, to 'tend to her. He's going ter stay up hure naow and be good." Everybody looked around at the youth. who blushed and cowed Involuntarily. "East Orange station; next stop for this traiawlll be Brick Church," said the brake- man. , .1 The masher looked around, saw that no interference would be offered and than bolted through the door and to the station platferm. . , ' . I don't go taokln Ir. Uouwe," Mid Rufus Joseph, "but there aire sometimes yer jest can't let It go by ahd her eny self respect. Eny man as has eny sisters knows baow I feel." New Tork Bun. LOW RATES.

"Don't you think, you've had enough, WlllleT" she asked. v "Don't know," he replied. "Don't know!" "Nope. Can't tell yet" he said. "But what do you think 7" "Ain't any use thinking at all. I got to know. Thinking don't help any If yon think wrong." "Well, you're the most remarkable boy X ever knew," said his aunt "When will you know 7" "In half an hour." "And how will you know 7" "Why, that's easy," replied the wise boy. "If I ain't sick In half an hour I'll be sorry I didn't take more, and If I'm sick I'll be sorry I took so much. That's the only way to tell that I know." His aunt admitted that It left no room for doubt hut she tried to point out that It was rather unsatisfactory, to which the boy merely replied that he wished there waa a better way, but he didn't know of any.
