    ('THE BOY FROM TOWN. ; i
Last ntcht a, bojr cams her from town
To ar wck r so,
Becaoaa his mw la all run down
And needs a rext. you know,
till name la Cecil, and he's eight.
And he can't skin the cat
Ufa maw calls htm "Pet;" I'd hate
, To have a name like that.
He wears a collar and a tie
And can't hand by his toes:
X curs that I would nearly die
It I had on his rlo's;
lie cant' ride bareback, and tn-dny,
When we sllil on the straw.
Be ast If roosters help to lay
The t'tn I pick fur maw.
When our old gander htiw d he run
As though hu thought he'd bite.
And lie uin't ever shot a Run
Or had a homrimuU- kite;
lie never milked a cow. and he
Can't even drive or swim
J'd hate to think that he was me,
I'm glad thut I ain't him.
IIo thinks lt' lots of fun to juimp
And see the water spurt,
But won't climb In the barn, and jump.
For fear of gettln' hurt.
Ills clu's nre t.Ule nice and flue.
Ills hair's all over curls.
His hands ain't half as big as mine,
lie ought to play with girls
A little while ago when we
Were f.iolln' In the shed
He suddenly gut mml at me.
Because 1 bumped his head.
There's lots of things that he can't do.
Ho thinks that cheep 11 bite,
'And he's afraid of ganders, too;
Put lie ran tight all right.

AN almost dismantled, forsaken,
nilolic house sUmm! nlonc near the
edge of the suiul-plnin in the midst
of a world of band, suit nnd moun
tains. To the onst n rniijji of squalid
Hack rocks rose into a precipitous
mountain rantro, striving with their
dark foreboding presence to subdue
the exuberant gladness of the bril
liant sunshine. To the west the mo
notonous yellow level stretched out
like a tawny carpet, to where n slight
rise in the land caused it to meet
,the sky as sharp and distinct ns a
placid lake meets the sandy beach.
On the side of the shack nearest
to the mountain side stood n new j
freshly-painted army ambulance; u
note of modernity interluded in n
.world-old symphony of sand, rocks
And atmosphere.
Crosswise on the tongue of the ve

posed redskin to force a very whole
some fear into the soul of the enemy.
The girl, entirely inefficient to rea
der any aid, sat silently watchlnj
with a wonderful kind of interest the
boy who was doing all that man
could-do to save his life and her
own. Occasionally a bullet bored
through the mud walls and sent the
dry mud flying in their faces, but
the range was great and the walla
stopped the majority of the bullets.
The hours seemed to come and go,
to them; a dozen times llorton hud
momentarily ceased his fire to listen
for the welcome thud of hoofs, and
as often was disappointed. It was
in reality but an hour before he sud
denly discovered that his supply of
rifle ammunition had been expended,
and that the six charges in his pis
tol were his only remaining articles
of defense. The girl saw this as he
discarded the ritle nnd drew the pis
tol, and felt her heart sink ns she
realized the situation. She saw him
as he gazed seurehiugly out over the
plain in an effort to discern a bit of
friendly blue, and saw the despair
which no man can hope to conceal,
come into his faee ami snuff out the
bit of hope nnd dignity brought
there by the joy of well fought com
bat. llorton carefully examined each
precious charge in the pistol, striv
ing to force himself to think calmly;
and nil the time nu unknown voice
repeatedly asserted that further re
sistance was entirely useless. Still,
possessed by that wonderful Anglo
Saxon courage which grows more
and more rebelliously firm as the
fight goes more and more to the
enemy, he quietly Informed the girl
that be had only begun to fight, and
by his demeanor attempted to live
the lie.
Instinct, however, told the girl
that his cheerfulness was entirely
assumed, but by neither word nor
look did she betray this knowledge.
Silent, not voicing vain regrets,
nor weak vindictives, they stood, liv
ing for the moments that reeled off
with fearful regularity, each fraught
with the question of life or death.
Occasionally llorton, from force of
habit, glanced at his timepiece, and
each time lie slightly shook bis head.
The wary Apaches, noting that the
white man's terrible rifle was stilled,
had stolen down to the last fringe
of rocks that offered them protec
tion, and were making visible prepa
rations for a rush. Still, thev knew
that the blue-shirted cavalrvmen had
nn uncomfortable habit of" shooting
terribly fast nnd accurate at short
range, with the pistol, and so they
still hesitated.
llorton, closely watching their
every move and carefully weighing
every circumstance, reluctantly de
cided that the time had come to
hold them off. I'll onlv have time to
fire probably a couple of shots, then
"I know," she said, quickly, as if
the prix '.lege f speech was a relief
after the bins' pulseless wait.
"We'll be killed. Well, you'll find
that I'm not afraid Ux die."
Tie boy became visibly embar
rassed. "'Tir-n't that," he sail, drooping
his eyes to the floor. "They won't
kill vim. von know. Miss Jordan:
ti.-n't their style xvith white women.
They'll they'll let you live; you un
derstand, don't you. Miss Jordan?"
Tor a moment she did rot compre
hend, then wheji the revelation
dawned upon her all her composure
and self-possession gaxe way.
"My tiod, they don't really do that,
do they?" she cried.
The 'boy nodded.
"Oh. it can't be." she said, clasp

the boy's disclosures crew unon her.

Her gaze rose steadily to his frank
eyes, and for a moment they gazed
abruptly. "You'll surely spare me
the fate of falling into'their hands
alive." It was a weak little plea, a
plea which told of all hoje for life
departed, and only a wish remaining
for decent death.

' The girl stood with clasped hands,
gazLog straight towards from where
the fatal bullet would come,' per
fectly resigned and fearless to meet
her God; the boy with bowed head,
subdued by the duty imposed upon
him, stood facing the door, idly roll
ing the cylinder of the revolver be
tween his thumb and finger, waiting,
When the first naked braves
bounded tip to the door with, rifles
held at ready, he fired twice, quick
ly, at the foremost, then as more
came forward to take the fallen's
places, he turned and skillfully shot
her through the heart. When he
turned to meet his fate llorton
feared for a moment that his senses
had left him. . ,
The foremost Apache fell a wrig
gling heap in the doorway ns if
struck down by a swift and powerful
hand, and almost simultaneously one
more fell likewise.
It was Rome seconds afterwards
that the rifle reports coining up
from the mountain pass where
Lieut. Thompson and his troops
traveling towards Fort Pratt were
firing, dismounted, told llorton that
he was saved.
For a moment the new lease of life
fairly exhilarated him. . Then his
eyes fell upon the form of the girl,
as she, a white, still heap upon the
mud floor, lay beside him, .
After all, Thompson nnd his men
were too late. He was not to be
saved. The girl was dead, and tie had
no right
The first trooper to enter was a
lightly-mounted private, and he
found them lying almost side by

Somewhat Chromatic
A Virginia reader sends a story
told by the late Albnn S. Tnyno
("Nicholas Spicer") ns an actual oc
currence. It concerned n hard-riding,
hard-drinking young Englishman who
settled near Linden, that state, in
the expressed hope that the rustic
surroundings would prove an aid in
ridding him of his abnormal thirst.
Hut lie clung to his old habits, nnd
soon became n connoisseur in moon
shine distillations, rather preferring
them, after n time, to those bearing
the government stamp. His face was
a mingled purple and Bunset-red, the
joint product of whisky and an open
air life; nnd he had nothing of charm
apart from bis faultless manners to
offer the pretty mountain girl who
consented to become his wife. One
afternoon he was carried home pret
ty well mussed up as the result of a
fall. The gravel of the roadslda, the
green of the grass and the ttedr
from some cuts added to the color
fulness of his countenance; and the
young wife, when Dr. 1'ayne arrived,
rushed out on the porch, screaming:
"0. doctor! doctor! go in to him
quick! lie has all the diseases of the
rainbow'." 1'hiladelpliia Times.
Whnt Ills Mother AVonl.l Do.
A teacher in a boarding school tho
other day was "showing off" her pu
pils before a number of visitors.
During the spelling lesson nnn
small, red-haired boy was given the
word "introduction." He paused,
twisted his lips, stared, and then in
a faltering way spelled it correctly
nnd was apparently very much sur
prised when he discovered that he
Lad done it.
"Do yon know what that word
means'.1" asked the teacher.
"No. miss."
"Well, now. 1" explain it to you.
Does your mother ever have vis
itors?" "Yes. miss."
"Well, now, suppose that two wo
men come to call on your mother.
Your mother knows one of the wo
men, but doesn't know the other.
She has never seen the woman and
doesn't even know her name. Now
how would she become acquainted
with this woman and find out her
"She'd send for a pot of beer!"
As that was probably the correct
answer the teacher had nothing fur
ther to say. Stray Stories.

he would call troops if the law'rannf

end sent a call for troops. Adjutant
General Stewart called the sheriff by
'phone at 9 o'clock and had a long
conference with him. The adjutant
general suggested that a posse of
members of the Citizen's Alliance be
called upon for assistance. While the
sheriff was preparing to act on this
suggestion he received more reports
of violence up and down the valley
and at once sent another urgent tele
gram to the governor calling for im
mediate assistance.
The worst of last night's outbreaks
occurred at Archbald. A crowd of 200
strikers, mostly foreigners, ransacked
the quarters occupied by the 40 men
employed at the Ilaymond washery of
the Ontario and Western Company
while the men were at work, and their
meeting with tho men as they were
