I "Anything," said the mugger, shut
ting his left eye again "anything' is
possible that comes out of a lwat thrice
the size of Mugger-Ghaut My village
'is not a small one."
I There was a whistle overhead on
the bridge, and the Delhi mail slid
across, all the carriages gleaming with
light, and the shadows faithfully fol
lowing across tho river. It clanked
away into tho dark again; but the
mugger and the jackal were so well
used to it that they never turned their
"Is that anything less wonderful
than a boat thrice the size of Mugger
Ghaut?" asked tho bird, looking up.
I "I saw that built, child. Stono by
stone I saw the bridge piers rise, and
.when the men fell off (they were won
idrous sure-footed for tho most part
;but when they fell) I was ready. After
,the first pier was made they never
'thought to look down the stream for
the body to burn. There, again, I
saved much trouble. There was noth
ing strange in the building of the
bridge," said the mugger.
J1 "But that which goes across, pulling
the roofed carts! That is strange," tho
1 "It is, past any doubt, a new breed
'of bullock. Some day it will not be
;able to keep its foothold up yonder,
and will fall as the men did. The old
'mugger will then be ready."
The jackal looked at the adjutant,
and the adjutant looked at the jackal.
(If there was one thing thoy were more
certain of than another, it was that
itho engino was everything in tho wide
world except a bullock. The jackal
had watched it time and again from
the aloe-hedges by the side of the
(line, and the adjutant had seen engines
since the first engine ran in India. But
the mugger had only looked up at the
jengine from below, where the brass
dome seemed rather like a bullock's
.' ''M yes, a new kind of bullock," the
mugger repeated ponderously, to make
himself quite sure in his own mind;
,nnd "Certainly it is a bullock," said the
i . "And again it might be" began the
"SOT FIRED AT ME
,rCcrtainly most certainly," said tho
jackal, without waiting for the other
"What?" said the mugger, angrily,
lor he could feel that the others kno-v
more than he did. "What might it be?
I never finished my words. You said it
was a bullock."
"It is anything tho Protector of the
Poor pleases, I am his servant nt
the servant of the thing that crosses
"Whatever It is, it is white faced
Work," said the adjutant "And, for
my own part, I would not choose a
place so near to it to lie out upon as this
"You do not know tho English as I
fio," said the' mugger. "There was a
white-face here when the bridge was
built, and he vould take a boat in tho
evenings and shufilo with his feet on
the bottom-boards, and whisper: 'Is he
here? Is ho there? Get mo my gun.' I
could hear him before I could see him
. aeh sound that ho made creaking
and puffing and rattling his gun, up
end down the river. As surely as I hod
picked up one of his workmen, and
thus saved great expense in wood for
the burning,' so surely woulJio como
down to the ghaut and shorn in a loud
voice that he would hunt me, and rid
the river of me the mugger of Mugger-Ghaut!
Me! Children, I have
wam under the bottom of his boat for
hour after hour, and heard him fire his
gun at logs; and when I was well sure
he was wearied I have risen by his side
and snapped my jaws in his face When
Jne bridge was finished he went away.
All the English hunt in that fashion
except when they are hunted."
" Who hunts the white-faces?" said the
"No one now, but I have hunted thorn
In my time."
"I remember a little of that hunting.'
I was young then," said the adjutant,
( olattcrlng his beak significantly.
"I was well established hero. My
Tillage was being builded for the third
time, as I remember, when my cousin
the gavlal brought me word of rich
waters above Benares. At first I would
not go, for my cousin, who is j fish
eater, does not always know tho good
from the bad; but I heard my people
talking in the evenings, and what they
said made me certain."
; "And what did they say?" the jackal
tslted. , , . ...... ..
"They said enough to make me, the
mugger of Muggcr-Ghuut, leave water
and tae to my feet. I went by night,
using the littlest streams as they served
mc; but it was the beginning of tho
hot weather and all streams were low.
I crossed dusty roads; I went through
tall grass; I climbed hills in tho moon
light. Even rocks did I climb, chil
drenconsider this well. I crossed
tho tail of Sirhind tho waterless, be
fore I could find the set of the littlo
rivers that flow Gunguward. I was a
month's journey from iny own people
and the river that I knew. That was
"What food by the way?" said the
jackal, who kept hia soul in his littlo
stomach, and was not a bit impressed
by the mugger's land travels.
"That which I could find cousin,"
said the mugger slowly, dragging each
Now you do not call a man a cousin
in India unless you think vou can es
tablish some kind of blood relation
ship, and as it is only in old fairy tales
that the mugger ever marries a jackal,
the jackal knew for whut reason lie
had been suddenly lifted into the mug
ger's family circle. If they had been
alone ho would not have cared, but the
adjutant's eyes twinkled with mirth at
the ugly jest.
"Assuredly, father, I might have
known," said tho jackal. A mugger
does not care to bo called a father of
jackals, and tho niugger of Mugger
Ghaut said as much and a good deal
more which there is no uso in repeat
"The Protector of the Poor hasclaimed
kinship. How can I remember the pre
cise degree? Moreover, we at the
same food. Ho has said it," was tho
That mado matters rather worse, for
what the jackal hinted ot was that the
mugger must have eaten his food on
that land march fresh, and fresh every
day, instead of keeping it by him till
it was in a fit and proper condition, as
every belf-respecting mugger and most
wild beasts do when they can. Indeed,
one of tho worst terms of contempt
along the river bed is "cater cf fresh
meat." It in about as bad as calling a
friend a cannibal would be among
"That food was eaten thirty Reasons
ago," said the adjutant quietly. "If
we talk fpr thirty seasons more it will
never como back. Tell us now what
happened when the good waters were
reached after thy most wonderful land
journey. If we listened to the howl
ing of every jackal the business of the
town would stop, as Che saying is."
The mugger must have been grate
ful for tho interruption, because he
went on with a rush:
"By the Right and Left of Gunga,
when I came there never did I see 6uch
WITH A BIIOItT GUN,"
' "Were they better, then, than tho
big flood of last season?" said the
"Better! That flood was no more
than conies every five years a handful
of drowned strangers, somo chickens,
and a dead bullock in muddy water
with cross-currents. : But, the season I
think of, tho river was low, smooth
and even, and, as the gavial had warned
me, the dead English came down touch
ing each other. I got my girth in that
season, my girth and my degth. From
Agra, by Eta wall and the breed waters
by Allahabad "
"Oh, the eddy that set under the
walls of tho fort at Allahabad!" said
the adjutant "They camo in there
like widgeon to tho reeds, and round
and round they swung thud"
Ho went off into his horrible dance
again, while tli jackal looked on en
viously, llo naturally could not re
member tho yer of tho mutiny they
were talking about. The mugger con
tinued: "Yes by Allahabad, ono lay still in
tho slack water and let twenty go by
to pick one; and, above all, tho Eng
lish were not cumbered with jewelry
and nose rlng3 nnd anklets as my
women are nowadays. To delight in
ornaments is to end with a ropo for
necklace, us the saying is. All tho mug
gers of all tho rivers grcw 'fut then
but it was my fate to bo fatter than
them all. Tho news was that the Eng
lish were being hunted into the rivers,
and by the Right and Left of Gunga we
believed it was true. So far as I went
south I believed it to be true, and I
went down stream beyond Monghyr
and the tombs that look over the river."
"I know thut place," said tho ad
jutant "Since those days Monghyr is
a lost city. Very few live there now."
"Thereafter I worked upstream very
slowly and lazily, and a little above
Monghyr there como down a boatful of
white faces alivol They were, as I re
member, women, lying tinder a cloth
spread over sticks, and crying aloud.
There was novcr a gun fired at us
watchors of the fords in thoso days. All
the guns were busy elsewhero. Wo
coujd hear them day and night inland,
coming and going as tho wind shifted.
I rose up full before the boat, because
I had nover secir white faces alive,
though I knew them well otherwise.
Anokedwhito child kneeled by the
side of the boot, and, stooping over,
be muBt needs try to trail his hands
in tho river. It Is a protty thing
to seo how a child loves running water.
I had fed that day, but there was a lit
tle unfilled spaeo within mc. Still, it
was for sport and not for fxd that I
rose at the child's hands. They were
so clear a mark that I did not oven
look when 1 closed; and they were so
small that though my jaws rang true
I am sure of that tho child drew them
up swiftly unhurt. They must have
passed between tooth and tooth those
small white hands. I should have
caught him crosswino at tho elbows,
but, as I said. It was only for sport and
desire to sec new things that I rose at
all. They cried out one after another
in the boat, and presently I rose again
to watch them. The boat was too
heavy to. push over. They were only
women, but ho who trusts a woman
will walk on duckweed in a pool, as
the saying is; and by tho Hlght and
Left of Gunga that is truth!"
"Ouce a woman gave mo some dried
skin from a fish," said the lacltal. "I
had hoped to get her baby, but horse
food is better than the kick of a horse,
a3 the saying is. What did thy woman
"She fired at me with a short gun of a
kind I have never seen before or since,
l'ivo times, one after another" (tho
mugger must have met with an old
fashioned revolver); "and I stayed
open-mouthed and gaping, my head in
tho smoke. Never did I see such a
thing. Five times, as swiftly as I wavo
my tail thus!"
The jackal, who had been growing
more and more interested in the story,
had just time to leap back as the tail
swung by like a scythe.

The Welsh name Is Abermawddy (cor

concluded that Ber or Bar was the name
of the river, and "mo" was short for

monumental book on "Social England."
The other is Rev. Robert Williams

likely to be heard of In the future.
The village of Penllwyn, near Aber

Dr. Edwards, of Bala; Ieuan Gwyllt,

few of the great men It has turned out.

Town councils in Welsh Wales do no

The Carmarthen town council. If we

the most wretched municipality In the

As a result of extended investigation,
Dr. Hillings writes out tho following
conclusions ns to the variations In the
death rates of the various races: 1. The
colored race is shorter lived than tho
white, and has a very high infantile
death rate; It Is specially liable to tu
berculosis and pneumonia, and less lia
ble than the white race to malarlu, yel
low fever nnd cancer. 2. The Irish race
has a rather low death rate among
its young children, but a very high one
among adults, due to a considerable
extent to tho effects of tuberculosis,
pneumonia and alcoholism. 3. The Ger
mans appear to be particularly liable
to disorders of the digestive organs and
to cancer. 4. Tho Jews have a low
death rate nnd a more than average
longevity; they are less affected by
alcoholism, but are especially liable to
diabetes, locomotar ataxy and certain
other diseases of the nervous system.

Sleep as a prolonger of life is upheld
by a curious calculation which appeared
in a medical work on the digestive or
gans and faculties. The duration of
human life may be ascertained by the
pulsations of tho body. Say a man lives
to 70 years, his heart beating sixty to
the minute, the pulsations in that time
foot up to 2,207,520,000.' If, by Intemper
ance, or any other cause, he raises pul
sation to seventy-five a minute, tho
same number of pulsations would be
finished In fifty-six years. And as the
number of pulsations Is less In sleeping
than In a walking state, it stands to
reason that a long sleeper has much
better prospect of a long life than a
person who Is satisfied with Bhol t naps.

he says: "Horizontal Hues across the
forehead are found even In children
who are rickets or Idiots, nnd that being
out in the sun with the eyes unbhaded
will produce them prematurely, but they
are natural at 40 or earlier. Vertical
lines between the eyes denote thought

produce the same effect, and, frequently
repeated, either leaves a permanent

At the nrst indication of croup or any
sort of cold, ellce raw onions, sprinkle
with granulated sugar, and let them

Another euro for croup Is to rub the
throat and chest until they are red, with
a mixture consisting of half a teaspoon
ful each of camphor nnd turpentine and
a tahlespoonful each ot coal oil nnd
