Rate Treslo was, as he himself was
ont to declare, '-th' most patient
an long-sutlerin' man on airth." It
was Kate's way to be patient and
lonn-suiTerintr, just as it is some men's
way to 'My oil the hooks" and lose
their tempers on the sliphest provo
cation. 1'ernaps the latter way la
more convenient, as saving one a vast
amount of lacerated feelings and loss
of pride, but date's way had the ad
vantage of costing its owner fewer
post-mortem regrets and fewer
friends. True it is that3ate's friends
were wont to impose on him much as
other people aid, but he diJu't mind
that at least, thev thought he
didn't. And it was this supposition
that led some of them into subse
jnent difficulty.
Rate was one of the principal
characters and most important feat
ures of Manganese, where he lived.
To be a principal character necessi
tates the possession of much spare
time, and 'ate had this essential
qualification nearly every day in the
week. When nc marrc nave it, ne
wa3 at work, but this did not happen
often. Nate was like Rip Van
Winkle always ready to take a drink,
or to lend a band for the benetit of
lome cne else, but prone to shirk la
tor which might beneflt himself and
his family. So Mr. Preslo sewed
aresscs and thing, which was quite
convenient for Nate, as it gave him
more time to indulge his fancy foi
Nate's loating-places were the Ex
Change and lied Front saloons. These
places were most convenient, being
provided with plenty of chairs, and
being the places roost affected by
citizens likely to set 'em up. Here
'ate did most of bis suffering, of
whatever kind. It came mostly in
the form of jokes, practical and of
mouth, leveled at Uiiu by his fellow
citizens, and in thn c he took a sort
Of mournful pleasure, as being an in
dication of his popularity. It Is a
well-established fact that an unpopu
lar man Is seldom troubled by jokers.
Like most of his kind, Nate had a
dog (not a yellow one, however, but a
spaniel) to assist him in leafing, and
it was Curly whose misfortunes lei to
Hate's final reformation.
One afternoon, as Nate was lazilj
holding forth to some of his cronies
from his seat in the Exchange, there
was a slight commotion on the street
outride, and they went to the door to
ascertain the cause. It was Curly.
He had stopped in at the Red Front
to look for Nato, and some of the
crowd down there had proceeded to
have fun with him by tying a tin-can
to his tail. He was now coming up
the street somewhat more rapidly
than usual, and heading for the Ex
change, as a possible place of refuge.
Kate picked him up and carried him
inside, where he removed the can.
Then he sat quite still for a few mo
ments, petting Curly, and quite un
conscious of the laughing mob in the
saloon, cracking fool-jokes at his and
Curlv's expense.
Suddenly he arose, and, without a
glance at any one. strode out of the
door. The crowd followed, wonder
log what he Intended doing. 'ate
stopped a minute in front of the bar
ber-shop to speak to Jim Calkins.
Got a gun, Jim?"
"Gimme It, fr a few minutes."
'AVhat ye goln' t' do, Nate?"
"Jim," answered Nate, slowly, but
working his nails in and out of his
palms very fast, "I'm coin' down t'
lick th' brute th't put that canon th'
pup an' I want V bo fixed t' shoot
back ef he makes a gun-play."
Jim handed him the desired six
shooter, and he went on down the
street tD the Red Front.
The jokers had cone Inside, and
were laughing as they waited at the
bar for drinks.
"Hulto, Nate!" called Nosey Trice,
frho was "buying. " "Bring th dog,
an' come an have a drink. Dooi he
drink, too? I see 'iui rushin' th' can
les now.'1
Of course all the men laughed up
roarlonsly, but they stopped short at
eight of Nate's uplifted hand and
blazing eyes.
"Hoi' on. Nosey," said Nate quietly,
"I want t' know, first place, who tied
that there can on th' pup's tall?"
Tho knot of drinkers at the bai
jookcl at each other halt-amusedly
for a socond or two, and then one
asked, laughingly:
"Why, Nate?"
"Because," answered Nate, "I jes
come down yere t' r'mark th't I'm
patient an' long-sufferiu' myself,
but, "
Another laugh interrupted him,
and thon he went on:
"But I don't perpose no brute it
goia' V tease that dog o' mine, none
whatever. Th' man th't done it is a
dirty, sneaking coward, an I c'n lick
im!" -
They saw he was in earnest, and
A id not laugh. Bill Klley, a big raw,
boned. ham-Osted "bad" man from
High Pines, who stood at the further
end of the bar. stepped forward.
"Wh-what did ye say?" he asked,
iurprisedly. "W'y, you half-Rrowed
sniveler "
They were not quite sure how it
happened; none of them had evci
seen Nate lift his hand against a fel
low man, atd they were totally un
prepared fcr what happened. In
icarce fifteen seconds, Nate, bleeding
but triumphant, sat astride bis an
tagonist, enthuslast'cally thumping
Lira on the head with the butt of the
prostrate Kiley'snwn revolver which
the latter had dropped somehow early
In the argument when the crowd in
terfered and dragged them apart.
After taking a couple of drinks and
washing his face, Nate walked home,
preceded by Curly, who seemed to
feel that ho had been thoroughly
avenged, and acted like a callow pup
In his satisfaction. Nate did not go
down town again that day. He went
into the bouse and surprised his wife
by kissing her. after which he went
out and split a most amazing amount
of stovo-wood, and in the evening he
played with the children and "tink
jred 'round."
Mrs. Preslo could not understand

ing to bo ill; but lie looked quite
nealtby, barring a black cyo and a
raised cheek. His wifo Inquired,

his seat by the table and came over
to where she sat

trouble that afternoon, and bow be
had made up bis mind to stop buf
fer in' " and do something more profit
able and respectable.
Next morning, Kate' did not go
Jown town until 9 o'clock. Then he
walked briskly down and called on
'Squire Field, who was a leading law
yer and politician. The 'Sqmro was
just looking over his letters when
Nate came in, but something In the
latter's face arrested his attention,
and he stopped his work to learn what
Nate wanted.
'"Squire," said Nate, earnestly.
"the city convention's two weeks I'm
t-dav, hain't it?
"M-m, yes; so it is."
"Wall, 'Squire, 1 want th' nomana-
tion fr city marshalL "
The 'Squire was amazed. "You,
Nate? Why "
"Hoi on, 'Squire. I want t' tell
e, first off. th't I hain't Ssufferin'

always been a good party man? an'
worked hard ev'ry election? an' never
asked fr nothin' more'n a seat in con
ventions?" "Yes, you have, Nate; but but
see here, you know that we've got to
have a strong candidate for marshal.
The other fellows have beaten our
nominee three times with Buckley-
he's a strong candidate and a good

in our crowd. Who've je got th't c'n
Jo better?"
The 'Squire pondered. "Well, Ben

"Ben Conant's got one good job.
Squire. An' has he got more frien's
n I have?"
"Well, you see, Nate, to be frank,
:here are a good many people whe
don't exactly approve of you. Now,
there's something that the good folks
would look dubious about been fight
ing. Nate? 1 never knew you to."
Nate grinned. "That's th' b'gin
jin' o' th' end o' my sufferin','
'Squire." And he told him about it.
The 'Squire tapped his teeth with
.lis pencil lor a few moments. "Nate,"
he said, at last, "keep mum, and
come up this afternoon, about hve
o'clock. "
That afternoon, the four or five
jrentlemen who guided the destinies
of the party in Manganese held a
star-chamber session in 'Squire Field's
office. The 'Squire Informed them of
Nate's morning visit and the conver
sation that had taken place; and, af
ter some deliberation, it was decided
that inasmuch as Nate had. quit
"sufferln" and had resolved to
"brace up," he should have the nomi
nation he deslrel. They did not be
lieve he could beat Charley Buckley,
but they wanted to show their good
will by "slating" him, anyway.
To say that most people were sur
prised when Nate's nomination was
announced, would be putting it mild
ly. But the atute politicians, who
bad had a couple of weeks to consider
the matter, nodded their beads
wisely, and were fully convinced that
a much worse selection might have
been made. Nate paid small atten
tion to what people thought or said,
lie kept steadily at work at his tem
porary 1ob in the brick-yards, and
iid his electioneering out of working
Of course the "boys" had fun with
nim, and he tooK it all in good part;
they did riot go too far with him,
If people were surprised at Nate's
aomination, they were dazed at bis
election. He carried the city by a
majority of over a hundred votes,
much to the consternation of Mr.
Buckley and his party.
There was, as is customary, an in
formal celebration at the Exchange
ind other resorts tbat night. Amid
the congratulations and flow or spir
its (of various kinds). Nate found and
availed himself ot an opportunity tc
jutline his future policy.
"Boys," he said, "I'm mighty
thankful an' glad ye've put me in; an'
now I want t' say, an' ye may' ve seen,
th't it'll be a right good scheme t'
r'memberth't I hain't 'Sufferin' Nate'
no more an' that'll save any an' all
misunderstandings. Hain't I right,
"You just bet"' responded the de
feated Mr. Buckley, fervently, and
its response was approved by nearly
ill present.
But many people are forgetful, and
iome are neglectful and skeptical,
ind no sooner had Nate been installed
in office and donned his star (the
Mayor presented blm with a new one
it the next council meeting, when
the officers-elect were sworn in) and
strapped on his six-shooter, than
trouble began.
Buckley had celebrated his retire
ment from office by getting too drunk
to kick the clothes off the bed in
which he was placed ataa early hour,
ind Nate was called on to perform
duty at once. A gang of six "bad"
men from Georgetown, hearing of
Nate's election and his Induction into
office, had come down to "do up" the
town and make it uncomfortable for
the new marshal, to whom they sent
word tbat they would kill him if he
interfered. They had a wholesome
fear of Buckley, but "Sufferln'
Nate left the council-room ana
.valked 6ver to the Double Eagle
Saloon, Where the six "bads" were.
They were leaning against the bar
and talking of "eating" the new
marshal. Nate stepped inside and
up to the end of the bar, very pale,
but Arm, and "covering" the whole
line with his revolver.
"Boys," he remarked, as (with
.lands uplifted, of course) they stared
at him, bardly willing to believe their
eyes, "I beerd ye talkln about eatin'
a chap named 'Sufferin' Nate.' They
hain't no seen person; but here's Nate
Preslo, City Marshal, an' be wants
ye. It they's any klllln' goln' on, I
j'n git two 'r three t your one; don't
f'rgit tbat Wilt" be said to the
bartender, "take the'r guns."
The bartender obeyed, and Nate
marched his half-dozen "bad" men
to the lock-up, whence they emerged
next day to pay their floe and shake
bands cordially with Nate, who drank
with them in a friendly way.
This was not quite the end ot
Sate's "sufferln's;" for not a few of
his friends essayed to take advantage
of him, now and then, and Impose on
his good nature; bnt it was not long
before they found out that Nate was
no respecter ot persons when bis dnty
ras involved, and that be would not
"suffer" any more tbaa the pride of
i man would permit; so tbat when
ihc next city ilootlon came on, Nate
vu ra-elected by a rousing majority.

Trained Bees.
Among the smaller animals none are
so Intelligent, practical and sober-minded
as the busy bee. lie will mount in
the air and fly in a straight line for his
hive. When a man wishes to say tha.t
he has gone by the shortest line from
one point to another and that, as
mathematics teach, is a straight line
he says he "made a bee line" for the
place. So In the structure of their
cells they apply by instinct the form
and' proportions which reason proves
to be the most effective and economica'
of space.
It would appear, therefore, a very
simple thing to teach bees tricks and In
troduce them to a professional life as
performers on the amusement stage.
Yet probably very few have ever seen
them trained. In 1831, however, a Mr.
W'Hdeman of Tlymouth did train a
troup and exhibited them for the recrea
tion of tbe curious public. He trained
a swarm of bees so well that he made
them enact maneuvers with as much
precision and unity as soldiers going
through field tactics. Wtldeman would
appear before an audience with the
bees swarming all over him. They
were on his face and hands, crawling
over his clothes, and his pockets wer
full of them.
The hives of the bees were in a cer
tain part of the hall quite removed
from the stage where W'Hdeman stood
with them thickly clustered on him.
He would give a whistle, and the bees
at once flew to their hives. When they
got well settled there he would whistle
again, and back they flew and settled
on his face, his hands and clothes once
more. This was done with the greatest
promptness and regularity. It must
have been some solicitude that the
spectators assisted at this performance.
But It Is due to the bees, and perhaps
to Wildeman, to say that no one war
ver stung by them.

Wingless Birds.
For ages before Its occupation by man
New Zealand swarmed with great
wingless birds, which found here no
carnivorous enemies, but an aDuna
ance of vegetable food. The moss not
only existed In vast numbers and for
thousands of rears, but had such aiver-
4ity of form as to embrace no less than
seven genera, containing twenty-flve
species a remarkable fact which Is
unparalleled In any other part of the
world. The commonest kinds In the
North Island were only from two and
a half to four feet high. Those of the
South are and were mostly from four to
six feet tall, while the giant forms,
reaching twelve and thirteen feet, wer
always rare.
Immense deposits of moa bones have
been found In localities to which they
appeared to have been washed from the
hills In tertiary times. Skeletons on the
surface of the.ground, with skin and lig
aments aflll attached, have given the
Impression that these birds have been
exterminated in very recent years, but
other facts point to a different conclu
sion. Tradition seems to show, ac
cording to F. M. Hutton, that the moa
became extinct In the North Island
soon after the arrival of the Maoris In
New Zealand that Is, not less than 400
to 500 years ago and In the South Isl
and about 100 years later.

Difficult to Define It, Even If It Exist
in Women.
Absolute ugliness In girls Is, accord
ing to woman, very seldom met with,
irregularity. Insignificance or want of
harmony lu the features Is not sufficient
to constitute real ugliness. A high fore
bead Is nowadays universally consid
ered to be a misfortune.
A pasty complexion Is, no doubt, a ca
lamity, so Is a long upper lip, and so
is a large chin.
But a- girl's face may have any one
ef these characteristics It may possess
them all without be.ng positively ugly.
An Intelligent mind and a gentle spirit
may do wonders In transforming a
plain face and making It, if not buau
tlful, attractive.
And the proof of this Is tbe often
noted fact that many plain and even
ugly girls are led to the altar, while
their handsomer sisters win admlratlor
without Inspiring love.
It Is when plain and badly formed
features are the lome of stupidity
when they are nnlllumlnatod by n
spark or a ray of generous feeling that
they form a truly ugly face.
Such faces there are, and there art
also no doubt fnTs cn-t hy nature in
so broad a mold that nothing will ren
der them attractive, any more than a
deformed figure can be made comely;
but such comeliness Is almost as rare at
beauty itself.
Men often excuse themselves from at
tendance on plain young women on
this ground, that they are not only 111
looking but 111-temered.
There la, too, much truth In th
charge. But the ugly girl Is not with
out excuse. The consciousness that no
man or woman cares to look at her
face a Second time. Joined to the sens!
tlveness she has acquired. Is apt to sour
her temper, and this. In its truth, teudr
to Increase, her ugliness.
Yet it is a singular fact that if a mai
for any reason pays marked attention
to a plain girl, she Is apt to hold her
chin half an Inch higher In the air than
a good-IooklDg girl would do under thf
same circumstances.
It would be futile to Inquire Into th.
reason of this tendency on the part of
ugly girls to give themselves airs, but
the fact Is patent to all men. Clncin

He Found Nothing to Iteport,
A young reporter was sent out recent
ly by the city editor of one of the Koch-
ester papers to report a meeting. About
two hours after the assignment was
made, the young reporter returned
with a sad countenance. The city
editor asked him to get the report up
Immediately, as It was nearly time to
go to press. "There will not be any re
port on that meeting." was the answer.
"Why not?" queried the city editor.
"There was not any meeting," replied

People Remember." One
Beacncumbers make a good living, n
a rule, by collecting nearly everything
.. u MQts nnon the beaches.
The fall of the year is their profitable
season. The September gales send the
on the beaches and
carry the surface sand back with them,
leaving the hard-pan expueeu. -hard-pan
is found on every beach, and
varies from a light yellow to a dark
brown. When Jewelry, money, or any
valuables are lost, they vjtork down
through the light surface sand with
marvellous quickness, and Anally col
lect on this hard-pan. There they re
main concealed from aU human eyes
until the fall gales expose them to view.
The beachcomber considers all such
findings hl legal property, and with a
long stick In his hands and tight rubber
boots on his feet, searches the whole
length of the beach for his booty. None
but a beachcomber realizes bow much
can be collected after, the first fall
storms. The summer visitors seem de
termined to plant the beaches with
rings, pins, watches, silver and gold
coin, buckles, and many trifles. Sev
eral thousand dollars' worth of Jewelry
are lost annually on the Long Island
beaches, and even more on the Jersey
coast. The watches are usually good
only for the amount ol gold or silver In
them, for the salt water ruins the works
In a short time. Last fall a beach
comber found on Fire Island beach a
handsome watch, which he sold for
$70, besides $20 in silver coin, and
many trinkets. Altogether his findings
amounted to over $.'500. During the
summer season many beachcombers go
forth every morning by sunrise to
search tho b aches, and every day they
pick up valuables of various descrip
tions. While one Is lying on the sand,
monpv verv easily rolls out of the
pocket, and a great deal of small chaiigr
U found in consequence.
After the Storm.
Another profitable season -for th
beachcombers is lu the middla of win
ter, after every severe storm. The
articles of valuo then come from
'vrecks, and consist of about everything
that one can Imagine. A lumber-laden
schooner may go to pieces on the reef,
and enough fine Georgia pine will drift
ashore to build several houses. By
means of a long pole, tipped with an
Iron hook, the beachcomber stands
knee deep in the water and collects
lumber by the wholesale. He may sell
this for good money, or use It for build
ing a house. A coal-laden schooner
springs a leak In the storm, and the
captain, to save the crew, beaches her.
She strikes a reef and goes to pieces,
and everything drifts away except the
coal. During the very low tides a hun
dred tons of coal are expos,-. to view
on the reef. The beachcomber gathers
this for the local market or for his own
use. Fruits, nuts and general mer
chandise are washed upon the beaches;
soma are water-soaked and ruined;
others are not Injured at alL More or
less personal property also makes Its

would be Impossible for even a beach
comber to enunorate the great variety
of articles he collects. IJeachcombers
are usually farmer fishermen. They
collect the driftwood for burning, sea
weed for bedding their cows and pigs,

would lose my Sife-ht, my far-e wns deformed,

thousands of dollars for their services, but
couid not obtain relief. At last, they stated my
cas was beyond the reach of medical skill,
and It would be but a short time until the end
would come. This certainly was not very
encourairing to me, but I never gave up
hope. In connection with receiving the at

medicine known to tho apothecary but nevr
received any relief until Dr. Williams' J'ink

Before I had taken half of the ilrst box ths

four boxes had been consumed the paralysis
had disappeared entirely, and much to my
surprise I felt like a new woman. I have
not taken any medicine since last spring,

not appeared since. I owe my health, my
Ufe to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
