How Mr. WlllcJns got a Sub
scriber Tor his Newspaper.
Oue night last week a Whitehall gen
tleman was on thu Troy .train relum
ing home. At Saratoga a gentleman
from Rutland took a seat behind the
Whltehaller. In n few minutes u con
versation was opened between tho t wo.
Ascertaining that our friend was front
Whitehall, tho Rutland gentleman ask
ed him If ho knew Wll kins, editor of
"Know lit m 1 1 ought to know him,
for he Is very Intimate with my wife."
"Youdon't say"' replied tho Rut
land man, in astonishment.
"Yes, Sir. I don't want It repeated;
but I have Indisputable evidence that ho
has been on terms of the closets Inti
macy with her."
"But, my friend, you don't live with
"Yes, sir; strange as It may seem, I
do. Oh, sir, you little, know what n
man will put up'with from the woman
lie lovrs. Thl Intimacy has been car
ried on for years right under my very
nose, and jet by the lovo I bear tho
woman I have never yet broken with
it y wife."
"But you cannot possibly put up
with such conduct on tho part of your
wife? If she is Intimate with Wllkins,
I should think you would brand tho
vlllian before the world. I would not
submit. Nosirl I would not, neverl"
The Rutland man had worked him
self up to a pitch of excitement, when
the train stopped at Whitehall.
"Good night, hil l" said tho Whitehall
gentleman, "I hope we will meet again.
Thank you for the Interest you have
taken In iny'affairs," and the two gen
tlemen shook hands and parted.
Just then the conductor entered the
car, when the Rutland man stepped up
and asked him who the gentleman was
he was Just conversing with.
"That man," said Conductor Hoi
comb; "don't you know him? That Is
Wllkins. editor of the Whitehall
"Sold, by thunder!" said the Rut
land man, putting his fingers Into his
pocket and taking out something. "Mr.
Conductor will you please give him this
card aud accompanying $5, and tell him
to send me his paper so long as the
money lasts?" Rutland (Vt.) Globe.
Surveyors Saved hy a Horse.
Somo years siuce, a party of survev.
ors bad just finished their day's work
in the north-western part of Illinois,
wiien a violent snow storm came on.
They started for their camn. which was
in a forest of about eighty acres In a
large prairie, nearly twenty miles fiom
any oiner trees. The wind wrts blow
ing very hard, and the snow drlftlnc so
as to nearly blind them.
Wheu they thoucht thev had nenrlv
reached their camp, they all at once
came upon lootsteps In thesnow. These
they looked at with care, and found, to
their dismay, that they were their own
tracks. It was now nun that thev
were lost on the g-eat prairie, and If
tliey hau to pa-s tho nigh, there, in the
cold aud mow, the chance was that no
one of iheiu would be alive in the morn
lug. While they were shlverine with
fear and cold, the chief man caught
sight of one of their horses, agraypooy
known as Old Jack.
Then the chief said: "If any ono can
show us our way to camn. out of this
blinding snow, Old Jack can do it. I
will take off his uridleand let l;imlooe,
and wo can follow him; I think ho
will show us our way back to camp.''
The hcrse, ns soon as he fotiud him
self free, threw his head and tall into
the air, as If proud of tho trust that had
been put upon him Then ho snuffed
tho breeze, and gave a loud snort,
which seemed to bay, "Come on, boysl
Follow me. I'll lead you out of this
scrape." Ho then turned into a new
direction, and trotted along, but not so
fat that the men could nut follow him.
They had not gone more than a mile
when they saw the cheerful blaze of
their camp fires, and they gave a loud
huzza at the eight, and for Old Jack.
Turf, Field and Farm.
While manipulating the windlass
of-a well, tho other night, a party who
had been laying In a stock ot whiskey
before It was all seized by thr police, let
the handle slip when thu bucket was
half way up, and naturally enough re
ceived a chuck under the chin that
knocked him over n neighboring fence.
"Sold again," he muttered as he climb
ed to his feet, 'might anudn hie bet
ter' than to liicj-o fooliu roun' so
much water, Betclicr boots I'll stick f
whiskey attr this."
'I ho Fa I Hi fill Boy.
Gerhardt was a German Shepherd
boy; and a noble boy ho was, too, al
though ho was very, very poor. Ono
day as he was walclilng his flock, which
wis feeding In a valley on the borders
ot the forest, a hunter came out of the
wood, and asked:
"How far is It to the nearest vil
lage?" "Six miles, sir," replied the boy,
"but tho road Is only a sheep track, and
very easily missed."
The hunter glanced at tho crooked
track, aud then said:
".Vy lad, I am hungry, tired, and
thirsty. I havo lost my companions,
and missed my way. Leave your sheep
and show mo tho road. I will pay you
"I canuo leave my sheep, air,'' re
plied tho boy. "They would stray In
to tho fore;t,and be eaten by tho wolves,
or stolen by the robbers."
"Well, what of that?" replied the
hunter. -'Theynro not your sheep.
The los of one or more wouldn't be
much to your master, nud I'll give you
more money than you ever earned iu a
"Icannot go, sir," rejoined Gerhardt,
very tlrrnlyi "my master pays mo for
my time, and he thro-ts mo with his
sheep. If I wcru to tell my time, which
does i ot belong lo me, mid tho sheep
should get lott, it would be Just tho
same as it I stole them."
'Well," said the hunter, "will you
trust your sheep with me while you go
to the village and get noma food and
di ink and a guide? I will take care or
them for you." The boy shook his
head. "The sheep do not know your
voice, and' hero Gerhardt slopped
"Sir," said the boy, slowly, "you
tried to make me false to my tritt-t, and
wanted ine to break my trust to my
master. How do I know you would
keep your word to me?"
The hunter laughed; but ho felt that
tbe boy had Tail ly silenced him. Uo
said: "I see, my lad, that you are a
good, faithful boy. I will nut forgot
you. Show me the road, and I will fol
low It myself."
Gerhardt now offered the hurablo
contents of his wallet to tho hungry
man, who, coarse as they were, ate
them gladly. Presently his attendants
cuiue up, and then Gerhardt, to hi j sur
prise, found that the hunter was the
Grand Duke, who owned all the coun
try round. Thu Duke was so p:eased
w'th the boy's honesty, that he sent
for lit in shortly after, and had httn edu
cated. In after years Gerhardt became
a very rich and powerful man, and ho
