MY EMPLOYER GAVE ME X GOOSE.
ITlie thing must hhvo weighed three
pounds at the least; it was an excep
tionally large and heavy shoe. The
bump on his head was swelling visibly
before my eyes. Anyone but an idiot
must have seen that he was hurt. I
expected an Irritable reply. I should
have given one myself had I been in his
place. Instead, however, he seemed to
regard the inquiry as a natural and
kindly expression of sympathy.
"It did, a little," he replied!
"What were you doing with it?" I
asked. It was an odd sort of thing for
a man to be traveling with.
"It wat lying in the roadway just
outside the station," he explained; '"I
picked it up for luck."
I lie refolded his handkerchief so as
to bring a cooler surface in contact
with the swelling, while I murmured
something genial about the inscrut
ability of Providence.
i "Yes," he Bnid; "I've had a deal of
llnck in my jtime, but it's never turned
'"I wa'f. horn on a Wednesday," lie
continued; "which, as I duresay you
know, is the luckiest day u man can
be born on. My mother was a widow,
aud none of my relatives would do
anything for me. They said it would
be like taking coals to Newcastle help

for having been born on a Friday. All
'I ever got was advice upon the duties
land responsibilities of wealth, when it
arrived, and entreaties that I would
not neglect those with claims upon me

Ho paused while folding up his va
rious insurance papers and placing
'them In the inside breast-pocket of his

there never was a bluckcr cat than the

; "Well, Of course it all depends," he
itnswered, dreamily, "maybe we'd
sever have suited one another; you
can always look at it that way. Still,
I'd like to have tried."

"Xo, perhaps not," he agreed; "but
created a coldness which others
were not slow to take advantage of.
"I offared her the eat, too," he added,
but more to himself than to me.
We sat and smoked in silence. I felt
.that the consolations of a stranger
would sound weulc
"Piebald horses are lucky, too," he
observed, knocking the ashes from his
pipe against the window sash. "I had
one of them once."
"What did it do to you?" I inquired.
"Lost me the best crib I ever hud in
my life," was the simple rejoinder.
"The governor stood it a good deal
longer than I had any right to expect;
but you can't keep a- man who is al
ways drunk. It gives a firm a bad
It would," I agreed.
"You see," he went on, "I never had
the head for it. To some men it would
not have so much mattered; but the
very first glass was enough to upset
me, I'd never been used to it."
"But why did you take it?" I per
sisted. "The horse didn't nuike you
drink it, did he?'
: " "Well, it was this way," he explained,
continuing to rub gently the lump
which was now about the size of an
egg; "the animal had belonged to a
gentleman who traveled in the wine
and spirit line, aud who had been ac
customed to visit in the way of busi
ness almost every public house he came
to. The result was you couldn't get
that little horse past a public-house
at least I couldn't. He sighted them a
quarter of a mile off, and made straight
for the door. I struggled with him at
first, but it was five to ten minutes'
work getting him away, and folks
used to gather round and bet on us. I
think, maybe, I'd have stuck to it, how
ever, if it hadn't been for a temperance
chap who stopped one day and lectured
the crowd about it from the opposite
side of the street. Ho railed me Pil
grim, and said the little horse was Rol
lin, or some such name, and kept on
shouting out that I was to fight him
for a heavenly' crown. After that they
.called us 'Roily and the Pilgrim,
fighting for the crown.' It riled me,
that did, and at the very next house at
which he pulled up, I got down and
said I'd come for two of Hcoteh. That
was the beginning. It took me years
to break myself of the habit."
I "But there," he continued, "it has
always been the same. I hadu't licen
a fortnight in my first situation before
ny employer gave me a goose weighing
eighteen pounds, as a Christmas pres
ent." "Well, that couldn't have done you
any 'harm," I remarked. "That was
v ''So the other clerks said at the time,"
he replied; "the old gentleman had
never been known to give anything
away before in his life. 'He's taken a
.fancy to you,' they said; 'you are a
lucky beggar!' "
I He sighed heavily. I felt there was
a story attached.
"What did you do with it?" I asked.
"That was the trouble," he returned;
"'I did not know what to do with it. It
,was ten o'clock on Christinas eve, just
as I was leaving, that he gave it to me.
I'Tiddling Brothers have sent me a
.goose, Biggies,' he said to me, as I
helped him on with his great coat.
'Very kind of 'em, but I don't want it
myself; you can have it.'
"Of course I thanked him, and was
very grateful. He wished mo a merry
Xmas and went out. I tied the thing
up in brown p$per, and took it under
my arm. It was a tine bird, but heavy.
"Under all the circumstances, and it
being Xmas time, I thought I would
treat myself to a glass of beer I went
into a quiet little house at the corner
of the Lane and laid the goose on the
" 'Thafa a big un,' said the land
lord; "you'll get a good cut off him to
morrow.' "His words set me thinking, and for
the first time it struck me that I didn't
want the bird that it was no use to
me at all. I was tgoing down to spend
the Xmas with nay young lady's people
"Was this tlie canary young lady?" I
"No," he replied; "this was before
that one. It was thl goose I'm telling
you of that upset this one. Well, her
folks were big farmers; it would have
been absurd taking a goose down to
them, and I knew no one in London to
give it to, so when, the landlord came
round again I asked him if he would
care to buy it. J told him he could
" 'I don't want it myself,' he answer;;;!.
'I've got three in the house already.
Perhaps one of theso gentlemen would
like to make an offer."
"IIo turned to a couple of chaps'Vvho
were sitting drinking gin. Thy didn't
look to ma worth the price of a chicken
between them. The.'eediest said he'd
like to look at it, however; and I undid
the parcel. lie mauled the thing
pretty considerably, and even exam
ined me as to how I came by it, ending
by upsetting half a tumbler of gin and
water over it. Then he offered mo
half a crown. It mudo me so angry
that I took the brown pnper and the
string in ono hand and the goose in the
other and walked straight out without
saying a word..
"I CARMCD IT THIS WAV." '
"I carried it in this way for some dis
tance, because I was excited and didn't
care how I carried it; but as I cooled, I
began to reflect how ridiculous I must
look. One or two boys evidently no
ticed the same thing. I stopped under
a lamp post and tried to tie it up again.
I had a bog and an umbrella with me
at the same time, and the first tiling I
did was to drop the goose into the gut
ter, which is just what I might have
expected to do, attempting to handle
four separate articles and three yards
of string with one pair of hands. I
picked up about a quart of mud with
that goose, and got the greater ps't of
it over my hands and clothes and a fair
quantity over the brown paper, and
then it began to rain.
"I bundled everything up into my
arm and made for the nearest pub,
where I thought I would ask for a piece
more string, and make a neat job
"The bar was crowded. I pushed my
way to the counter and flung the goose
down in front of me. ' The men nearest
stopped talking to look at it; and a
young fellow standing next to me said:
" ' Well, you've killed it.' I dare say I
did seem a bit excited.
"1 had intended making another
effort to sell it here, but they were
clearly not the right sort. I had a
pint of ale for I was feeling some
what tired and hot scraped as much
of the mud off the bird as I could,
made a fresh parcel of it end came out.
"Crossing the road a happy idea oc
curred to me. I thought I would raffle
.it. At onee I set to work to find a
house where there might seem to be a
likely lot. It cost me three or four
whiskies for I felt I didn't want any
more beer, which is a thing which
easily upsets me but at length I fount'
just the crowd I wanted a quiet, do
mestic looking set in a homely little
place off the Goswell road.
"I explained my views to the land
lord. He said ho had no objection; he
supposed I would stand drinks round
afterwards. I said I should be de
lighted to do so, and showed him the

' 'Ii smells a bit queer, too,' he said.
" 'That's tnucl,' I ausvrered; 'you
know what London mud i-i. And u
gentleman spilled r-oine pin over it.
You won't notiee that when it's cooked.'
" 'Well,' he replied, 'I don't think I'll
take a hand mysulf; but if any other
pent likes to, that's his affair.'
"Nobody teemed enthusiastic. I
started it at sixpence; I took a ticket
myself. The potman hud a free ehanoo
for Eiiperintendiuf tho arrangements,
and succeeded in 'inducing live, other
men, much ag-ainst their will, to join
us. I won it myself and paid out three
ond twopence for drinks. A solemn
looking individual who had been snor
ing in a corner suddenly woke, up as I
was going out and offered me soven
penco ha'penny for it why sevenpence
I have never been able to understand.
Uo would have taken it awny, I should
never hn vo seen it Otfain, and my who'.j
life might have been different. But
fute has always been against me. I re
plied, with perhaps unnecessary
hauteur, that I wasn't a destitute Xmas
dinner fund, and walked out.
."It was getting late, and I had a
long walk homo to my lodgings. I
was beginning to wish I had never seen
the bird. I estimated its weight by
this time to bo thirty-six pounds. . .
"Tho idea occurred to me to sell it to
a poulterer. I looked for a shop; I
found one in Myddleton street. There
wasn't a customer near it, but by the
way the man was shouting you might
have thought that he was doing all
thetxads fit CJcrkQwsiiv I.iwk.tbe

"'It'aagfMK,' I said; 'you, C".n, have

and flung it nic. I (lodged, and it
caught the back of my head. You can
have no idea, if you've never been hit
on the head with a goose, how it hurts.
I picked it up and hit him back with it;
and a policeman came up with tho
usual: 'Now then, what's all this
"I explained tho facts. The poul
terer stepped to tho edge of the' curb
and apostrophized the universe gen
crallv. '" 'Look at the shop,' ho said; 'It's
twenty minutes to twelve, and there's
seven dozen geese hanging there that
I'm willing to give away, and this fool
asks me if I want to buy another.',
"I perceived then that my notion had
been a foolish one, and I followed the
polieeman's advice, ond went awny
quietly, taking the bird with me.
'Then I said to myself: 'I'll give it
away. I'll pick out some poor deserving
person, and make them a present of the
d d thing.' I passed a good many peo
ple, but no one who looked deserving
enough. It may have been the time or
it may have been tho neighborhood, but
those I met seemed to me to be unworthy
of tho bird. I offered it to a man in
Judd street, who I thought appeared
hungry. He turned out to be a drunk
en ruffian. I could not make him un
derstand what I meant, and he fol
lowed me down the road abusing me at
the top of hli voice, until, turning o
corner without knowing it, ho plunged
down Taviutock place, shouting iiitci
the wrong man. In tho Euston road
I stopped a half-starved child and
pressed it upon her. She answered
'Not me'.' and ran away. I heard hei

gave him twopence and plodded on
with it once more. The pubs were jusl
closing, and I went into ono for a final
drink. As a matter of fact I had had
enough already, being, as I am, unac
customed to anything more than an oc
clonal glass of beer. But I felt do

"I meant to throw it over into Oak
ley square, but a policeman had his eye
on me and followed me twice round
the railings. In Goldiog road I sought
to drop it down an area, but was frus
trated in like manner. The whole
night police of London seemed to have
nothing else to do but prevent my get
ting rid of the goose.
"They appeared so anxious about it
that I fancied they might like to have
it. I went up to ono in Camden street.
I called him 'Bobby,' and asked him if
he wanted a goose.
" '1 11 tell you what I don't want,' he
replied, severely; 'and that is none of

"I slipped out of his hand and bolted
down King street. He blew his whistle
and started after me. A man sprang
out from a doorway in College street
and tried to stop me. I tied him up
with a butt in the stomach and cut
through the Crescent, doubling back
into the Camden road by Batt street.
"At the canal bridge I looked behind
me and could see no one. Idropped
the goose over the parapet and it fell
witli a splash into the water.
"Heaving a sigh of relief, I turned
and crossed into Randolph street, and
there a constable collared me. I was
arguing with him when the first fool
came up bieathless. They told me I
had better explain tho matter to tno
inspector, and I thought so too.
