In thin I J*aa meeting withUocidod ancot»«-. anti wan making money ct a rat** I ha«i not. iii mr wiki oat ti r anticipated.
I »«) a widower, ami, an will roatlilv lie I relieve I. wa-, de voted Iv attach-<1 to my only child, an active und tinuauailv bright Ieiv -.f ,ight veers. A fatlu-i parti- ii ,rl n a doting on.-, *•< I italn.it iayaelf to have i.c-tt ta apt to «*\ug Bf vat* the abilities aud ..Uaiuuionta of nfx childron, and I well know that the first branch of av state moat will Ire given greater credence than tho last.
I w ill not stop to argue tho matter with the incredulous reader, but jrro* coml to relate the stonr npou which I have already made a beginning, confident that it will convince th,- mmt skeptical of tho quick wit and nervy of my little IL.bbio,
I h.td brought him with me to Michigan, and left him at edi.srl in ICa-t haginaw while I conduct*--! -iv pm tit-.-bl-- eau vs*, among the pim-rte*. Late in NoJeinlHT tho friend with whom I had left him wrote me that he had Ire rome execedingl . lo losomo, a- -I . .mid not apply hnuaelf to his -tudie*.
It re ptii cd no great evidence to convince rue of th.- truth of the i for a month'-* separation from ni Um had brought mo to a similar stat© of mind, rite letter decided me nj"rn a oonrsf that for rom.* days I hu-1 been eons lie ting a foo]i-.h course at * man in full )maseru-iii of his factiltn---'no ii.I have said. I directed that Robbie In sent forward to mu in the \at pine woods.
Tbnedays later he joined me, having been pl ai-, si in charge of a kindhearted lumberman, wlm delivered him safe enough, though with but little appetit*- for the sweetmeats I had Tided in honor of hi* adient.
Blit the ripened harvest of dollar* awaited my sickle, and not even the pleasure of playing with my boy could detain mo form business.
I had worked all the camp.* in that section, and decided to start the next morning for a jmint on the river, some twenty miles away. where I was .-onti-dent of di*jmsing of & number of ma chines.
I was to make the ion rn or on horseback, Robbie riding behind me. We hail mounted, said good-bv to our new but none the less warm friends, w hen an old skidder cuiue running toward
here some years before, and abandoned, ^ after the timber on the con roe had been felled, a telegraph lino con- ' atm. ted and some little grading done.
I Well knew that it w as but a troor apology for * road, and had univ adopted it lr«cau*c it shortened the distance by more than one half, from that of tho regular wagon road
We were, aa nearly as I could e*ti ! mate. within five or six miles of our destination when, to my con sternal inn.
1 saw that the prognostication of the ' old skidder was nlmut to be verified. The sky had I re.-nine otercast with elnnds. the tall pines were rocking in the rising wind, and flakes of snow were Imginniug to flutter to tho ground.
I tried to increase the speed of the horse, but found it imposaible bv reason of the numerous abstraction* iii th«* form of trunks of tris-s
“l*oii t Is- afraid, Robbie," said I, in us cheerful tones as I could command.

\ snapping sound cut short the lad s remark and caused hi }M*n pretty wide, I fear.
An upward glance showed nm th.-green top of a huge pine, describing in , our direction an aw ful circle iii the air.
I dug my heels into the flanks of the horse arid shouted at the voi.-e.

But I at once interdicted this plan. storm had I recto lie furious bv this time, and I well knew that the lrov could never face it and live.
Toward evening, however, it abated and Anally ceased altogether. Hut the wind, howling through the cml v avenue afforded it. had piled the snow into enormous drifts, which precluded ail thought of the chiM’s working hi* wav through them.

Yesterday morning Keeper Havens, of the t.ress /.<*,, jrcrfortued a very delicate operation.
The Silver lioness, “Mollie," chewed tip a | ieee of raw Us-f which the butcher lad - lr.-pp.sl up w itll a cleaver, leaving aune fragments of lame in the flesh.

“Mollie" kick.si and struggled until the keejrer f -udle.1 her awhile. After ‘he WUN secured he entered the cage all alone, and. taking her head between hi krio, I, he cut a small incision in the cheek, took his lance and drew out the sliver, an inch in length.

Then I spoke of other matters, not wishing him to entertain hojres which I sawr had no foundation.
