streaks here and there I should like to copy them on a plaque or a panel or something if only one could be sure of reproducing those delicate tints of rose and white Wei1 I declare I said Hose Hebron the country cousin whom she was visit ing laughing with a merry thrushlike laugh as the two girls sat on a moss enameled boulder tinder the boughs of the ladyappletree with here and there a yellow leaf fluttering dreamly down at their feet Who would dream of such a poetical description applying to the ap ples that grow in Squire Sandfords or chard Wasnt it good of him to allow us to gather them said Linnet trimming the sideleaflets off a lovely branch of yellow goldenrod I shall not believe that they are ab solutely declared Rose until I see them in the old applebin at Why not Oh Squire Ccdric is eccentric Rose answered carelessly Ccdric Is that his name Yes Isnt It an odd relic of the Saion times laughed Rose Its a very romantic remarked Linnet wrinkling her brows in pretty consideration of the epithet He isnt observed Rose Isnt he But why not Hes so old I Thirty at least 1 Rose responded with an emphatic nod of the head Horrid ogrel said Linnet who was in her seventeenth year Come Rosey lets go home Im as hungry as a canni bal Gathering apples is tuch hard work I She skipped ahead with her yellow tresses floating behind like stray strands of sunshine and her white dress rustling over tho drifts of perfumed leavct that carpeted the path Rose followed with affectionate eyes of admiration What is the difference between mo and Linnet i herself My dress is white also my hair ifl as golden us hen Why is it that sha Is like a dancing sprite I a plodding human be ing Poor little Rosy I She did not realize that Linnet Dcssoir had grown up in an altogether different atmosphere that Lin net had unconsciously modeled her dress from the graceful robes which her father the artist kept to drape his layfigures Lhat her eye had been trained her taste cultured in every possible point Hes only a poor struggling artist Farmer Hebron had been wont contemp tously to observe when he saw hisbroth crinlaVs name among tho lists special y honored by the Academy of

Linnet however the bright mother ess young beauty was a great favorite of hc kindhearted Hebrons and when she lad so enthusiastically admired the bcau iful pinkand white ladyapples on Squire Sand

will send a bturel to the tree tomor Mr Hebron it shall be filled for raur nieceJ And when the squire said this he pict ured in histnlnHVeye niece as iwapsof at freckles an y long arms All night long linnet dreamed of the aad jWhen the son rose fire Above the eastern hJHA sift jumped out of bed and dressed herself with hasto I cant sleep another said she Its just thevery sort of morning Id Nothing

the stone fence I woat wafcc Bosy atelastrnight putting la oathe quince jelly Pll let nsyself I rook close to the la der if she knows t tured Ajax in the fAjax w sa savage beautiful bull who was at once tho pride and torment of Farmer Hebron and a thrill of terror came into Roses heart as sho made all speed to follow the dewy track of Lin nets footsteps over tho grass As she reached the belt of woods close to the applcbrchardj she paused in dis may at the sound voice Its Linnet she in voluntarily claimed And shes scolding some body Dear me whom can it be Sure ly not Ajax You are a thief I she could hear Lin net robberl Let that bar rel of apples alone I say I dont care whether you are Squire Sandford or not That barrel of apples is mine i And as Rose drew near she could sec this dimpled young Amazon resolutely defending the barrel of apples with her single strength against Sqmre Sandford and his stoutest farm laborer She stood there with one slight hand on the redchecked fruit which was brimming over the barrelhoops and be fore her the tall squire and his herculean aiddecamp were helpless If you will allow me to explain pacifically began the squire I will allow nothing declared Lin net I repeat these apples are mine Touch them at your peril Thus far the young heroine was a con queror But alas in that very moment of victory Nemesis was at hand There was the dull sound of trampling hoofs then a sullen bellow and Ajax himself bursting weak spot in the fence was upon them Linnet Dessoir collapsed so to speak at once She forgot her heroism her but her danger and flew for rescue to Squire Sandford shrieking Save me I save me The farmhand dogged behind the wagon but Squire never quailed but held s her resolutely in his arms Do not be he said almost as if bo had been speaking to a frightened child onel Foran Instant lookveVf then Squire Sandford spoke gently once more Do not hold myarm to he Let me get at my revolver I must shoot tho brute No dont bo so terri fied Do not you hear me say thnt noth ing should harm you And then tho problem resolved itself as problems often do Ajnx butting his hugo head against the barrel of ladyap ples sent them rolling in all directions and caught his horns in the barrel itself effectually blinding him set off at a wild gallop down the hill bellowing as he went and there he met his fate in the shape of two orthree men with a run ning noose of ropo and a good stout chain Hello pctP shouted Farmer Heb rons voice Whats the matter She hasnt fainted has she squire And Linnet realizing that she was safe blushingly withdrew from Mr Sandfords sheltering arms and ran to her uncle I am much obliged to you sho whispered And dont mind what I said about the apples You are yuiic welcome to Hey Apples said Mr Hebron Why Linnet didnt you know thnt I carted tho barrel of apples that the squire gave you home last Linnet grew crimson all over and fled to Roses faithful breast for consolation shall never dare to look that mnn in the face she bewailed herself Oh dear what muil he have thought of me 1 But of course Mr Sandford considered it only right and proper to cnll that eve ning and inquire how Miss Dessoir found herself and really tho meeting was not half as embarrassing as Linnet had fancied it would be They had a good laugh about Ajax and the apples and Linnet confessed how dreadfully frightened she had been And with said Squire Sand ford There was a second or two in which we were in very serious But you will forgive me about the apples said Linnetj with pretty coax ing earnestness Ob yes I will forgive you about the apples Squire Sandford laughingly returned And in that moment Linnet thought what a very pretty color his eyes were decided that he couldnt possibly be thirty years old eaid Rose

of dramaticpower entrancing their atten tive audiences by the magnetism of high ly onrought fiction exaggerated descrip tion and effective mimicry Indeed some of them have acquired a renown for their specialty KizAhmed or Lady Ahmed is so named on account of his successful ability in taking oS the la dies and Pidjemin is noted for the pa They exercise certain coup de theatre of their own and are by the ex cited fancies of the people invested with a geniilike power as they condense into a passing hour the scenes of an eventful life or detail the enchantments of fairy dom In fact these meddahs occupy the Oriental lecture field and on festive occasions provide a most welcome part of the entertainment Their tales general ly vulgar to suit public taste are often not devoid of some good moral and their comicalitias hold up some popular vice to public Bazar In an African Forest At this Juncture the native ar rived having followed in our footsteps anxious to see tho result of our selfguid ance Wishing to transfer my responsi bility to other shoulders I offered them a present of cloth if they would lead us through the trackless forests to tho pre cincts of Rombo whence I knew wo could find ouifmf unaided to Tavcita They consented afid once more we entered tho following a course by means of tho rough paths which elephants had just made Often the longstemmed flowers and crushed Etnincd grass would be slowly rising erect ngain from the prostrate position into which they had been trampled by the feet of the clumsy proboscidians these lordi of tho forest who had just preceded us Indeed from time to time they would make their presence known by sonorous trumpeting but as they were quite awafo of our proximity they took good care to conceal their hugo bodies The undergrowth was so dense that yon might have touched an elephant in youi gropings before you saw him but above this dense tangle of six or seven feet in height rose the straight smooth trunks of superb trees indeed tho timber I saw herewas exceptionally fine The gloom of tho forest was intensified by tho enor mous masses of orchillawecd which grew thickly on tho upper branches of the trees in such a manner as to suggest a gray green cloth being thrown over tho foliago The density of the woodland growth was almost appalling wefeltHke insects creeping and twining through the interstices of the mighty trunks As we preferred to go whither the elephants had forced a way our course was naturally an erratic one and several times the men lay down in despair to pant and THIEVES Poyoa bovit Thorn

everyone becomes a thiof He has everything to make his life happy am yet will give it all up to have a littl more money It looks a good deal like a disease which comes over a man and he cannot help giving up to its influence Prisons are full of just such people Thieves when committing crime al ways have in mind a way to escape if do tccted They do not want to be caught o killed They will take desperate chan ces to get away If a life stands in thei way of escape they will take it not as a matter of hatred or pleasure but as a part of their education and trade Bu this in every case is only a last resort and no thiof will add murder to his crime unless certain he can get away As a rule they are not to be feared A show of nerve will always unbalance them This applies particularly to tho police man Even though they know that they have an advantage over a man who wakes up suddenly in the night and finds stranger prowling around they will re spect and fear him if he doesnt show any sign of fright Scared people help along their business But a policeman is on an equal footing with a thief in re gard to being awake and armed If ho is possessed of tho real genuine nerve tho case is soon settled and the thief will us ually surrender without trouble Bluf will not do A thief can sec a lurking sense of fear in an officers heart anc will make things lively if he finds it A quiet

dark house Is what will try a man Tho recollection o places I have been hi at times during my long experience as an officer will bring on a chill of fright I well remember a lively burglar I went after many years ago An alarm had been given and I had him located in the second story of a high building Ho was camly picking out the most valuable articles to take away when I surprised him He was a tall sinewy and slippery fellow and a the first sound I made he made a leap as if shot from a cannon Up tho stairs ho flew like a streak and I went after him Ho evidently knew the building I did not and hit every obstruction I could find He gained the roof when I was halfway up the stairs leading to the scuttle and when I got there I could just sec his figure in the darkness going like the wind I followed him without hesi tation and when he got to the sido of the house he stood a second and then jumped I was going so fast that I went right off tho house without knowing where would land It seemed in the confusion as if I went down fifty feet before I struck anything Then I landed square on my feet with a force that nearly shook my teeth out I thought for a moment that I haa fallen between two houses I was right on the thiefs heels and before he could take a step I caught bin I was sore from that fall and I did not put a tender grip on tho fellow He did not struggle and I took him in quietly The next day I went around to look at the and found that I had jumped from one roof to another a distance of from fifteen to twenty feet I never got over the ihock from that jump My

through nervousness or fear rode up to the commander of the Eng lish Cavalry and communicated an or der which ho declared he had received that the cavalry should retreat The commander asked for a written order the staffofficer admitted he had none but spoke so positively as to the instruc tion which he was charged to deliver that the commander gave the order that his men should retire The Sikhs seeing the cavalry drawing off supposed the movement to bo for the purpose of attacking them on their flank and cutting off their communications A panic seized them and they began to re treat The English commandcrinchief j noticed the disorder in the Sikh ranks and ordered a charge along his whole line which resulted in tho rout of the enemy Thus a victory which saved India to England was due to a nervous officer who invented an order he had never re ceived If tho British troops had been defeated the whole of India would doubtless have risen to throw off the yoke of those whom the
