The last Chance it led to proof of True Friendship by Sarah Maria Grant i take in Capri bring the right Man. It re a lured All of Gabriel a Iron strength to i hold the angry captive in place. The mysterious change that heralds the Dawn found Gabriel Jim Lewis the Crane and Tim Lewis Riding through n narrow defile whose farther end marked the line another state. Harry Barry shaken into a More comfortable postage but his Bead and shoulders still enveloped in the Blanket was permitted to ride White Star while his friends with voices lowered during their infrequent Converse managed to conceal Fher identity from him. When they were safely on another territory they paused and gathered into n semicircle about the prisoner. The Blanket was withdrawn from Harry Barry s indignant countenance and he split the morning air with a whoop of disgust when he viewed the faces of his friends in the wan Daylight. Worn and Haggard they were but each pair of faithful eyes viewed him with brotherly love. A what in the blankets Blank Blank is the matter with you Gaz Boea a he bellowed Wrath fully. Quot is this what you Call a joke to carry a Feller thirty Miles away from the first Streak of Luck he a Ever had 7 i wish i d kept it to myself a he looked around at their crestfallen faces his own anger abating in the Light of concern he read in the eyes fixed on him. A a we re your friends Harry Quot boomed Gabriel solemnly. Quot what we be done this night has been agin the Law As we All know it but i done to believe one mothers son of us would have done it for anybody but you. Seems like i could t Bear not to hear Yon laugh no the rough fellow Drew his sleeve across his brow and for an instant Bis troubled and betraying eyes were hidden. The others nodded assent a not for nobody but you Harry a added the Crane crus tily. Harry Burry stared at their woebegone faces with bewildered Eye. looked Little like a condemned Many a Man who had faced death but a few Short hours before a Man who had escaped certain hanging from one of the three cottonwoods at satan s Gulch. Quot what a the rumpus a a be demanded at length. A you got my note All right Quot a that s Why we came and what a happened that you Call the limb of a Cottonwood the first Streak of Luck you Ever had a demanded Gabriel sternly. A there want no Gal in the Case a Harry Barry stared Quot nary Gal a he managed to say after awhile Quot but Wpafb the limb of a Cottonwood tree got to do with me a silently Gabriel passed Over the note that the mexican had delivered and the others stared curiously As the Yonng Man read 1l a where a the rest of it a he demanded. Quot Best of it Quot they echoed. A the first part. Its been Tom a a that a Tho Way it was handed to me a said Gabriel. A a in la bet the Greasy Toad Tore some of it off to make a cigarette a sputtered Harry Barry. Then turning toward them he said wit Bont a Trace of humor in his pleasant voice a this part boys sounds mighty desperate but when i Tell you what was in the part that the Greaser Tore off Yong la understand. The whole note said a hurray in be struck Sliver at satan a Gulch after All come to the three cottonwoods and bring the boys to celebrate. Its the last and boys the name of the new mine is last his careless Young face grew very tender As the four yelled themselves hoarse with Delight they joked one another about the mistake they had made and As they turned about and Rode Back Over the Trail into their own state they discussed with much laughter the pains they had taken to bring Harry Barry away from Streak of Luck. Harry Barry s favorite theme for months had been his belief that Silver Ore would be found at satan a Gulch and he had utilized his three weeks vacation to Prospect that Region thoroughly with the Best of Success. Harry Barry himself was the Only serious one in the party bound for the cottonwoods. At last when they All Drew rein under the Trees and bad examined the notice of hts claim that was posted there they wanted for him to speak. looked around at their tired fees and read the satisfaction in their eyes. There came to him then the full knowledge of what Friendship Means Between men. Quot friends a he said gently a i understand now Why you Rode Down to the three cottonwoods and you must have believed some in me to do what you did. This ainu to going to be a big mine a there ainu to a Fortune in it but no an inspiring tribute. Copyright by american frees As so. It elation. 1911. Y4,44 4"h 444444 lt44444 4"h h a dirty looking mexican had brought the roughly scrawled note to the Lone Bull ranch. It was at the Edge of the evening and the extended absence of Light hearted Harry Barry had been a matter of comment among Bis comrades. Ills two weeks leave of absence had been stretched to three and although work was Dull at this season his silence caused a vague disquietude among the older men. The note was addressed to Gabriel and he unfolded it with the careful deliberation of one who Seldom receives an epistle. held the torn Sheet of paper close to the lamp and scanned the words with Sharp eyes that narrowed to Mere pin Points of Light when he had concluded. A a it a from him a he said with a Curt nod toward Harty Barry s empty chair. They scented trouble in the tone of his voice. Gabriel was not Given to emotion but he bad grown attached to Harry Barry and loved him As a what s happened a demanded Jim Lewis. For answer Gabriel tossed the note across the table a and Jim seized it eagerly and read aloud come to the three cottonwoods and. Bring the boys to celebrate. Its the last change. B. Hardened though they were the faces of the fourth launched As the meaning of the words smote them strongly. The three tall cottonwoods that stood near satan a Gulch marked a spot that was recognized throughout the adjacent cattle country As a place where the Swift Justice of the Plains was meted out to offenders. Without a word the four arose and reached for their hats. In the same grim silence they strode out of the bunk House forgetful of the mexican who crouched in the veranda As they passed. They were three Miles on their Way toward satan a Gulch when the Crane broke the silence. A what became of the Greaser a he asked suddenly. A i forgot him a admitted Gabriel. A did anybody pay him for the letter a a you paid him yourself Gabe. I saw you flip him four bits a remarked1 Jim Lewis. A they All grew silent once More thinking perhaps of the merry even inf a spent under the Star dusted sky or in the shelter of the bunk House with Harry Barry the Pivotal Center about which Good humor swung. A a there a Only one thing Harry might do a growled Gabriel from the depth of a troubled heart a and he would t do that unless he was pushed to Wrangle. Harry he Wasny tone to Force gun play a added Jim Lewis seriously. A if Harry did drop his Man it would by in a fair fight and there be no cause to a a the cranes pause was significant. They Rode on across the shrivelled grasses and Down dry water courses heading always for the Southeast and yet Ever dreading to glimpse the gaunt outline of the cottonwoods against the sky. A Young Moon slipped Down the Western spaces and after awhile there was no Light save that of the stars and in the soft radiance they moved on their Way to take advantage of their last Chance to say Farewell to Harry Barry. It was Gabriel a eyes that first saw the Black cottonwoods and he halted his horse with a sudden Jerk and stopped the Progress of the other men. A i got something to say a he muttered hoarsely. A we All know that what s going to happen in the morning can to be stopped just because Harry is our Friend. Them of us that Breaks the Law whether intentional or otherwise has to pay the Price and Harry s got to take his Medicine. But Well All stand by him till a Fiey nodded silently but there was not one of them Gabriel included who did not Register a mental vow to attempt to free Harry Barry before the Dawn broke. Almost within the Shadow of the Trees the four halted their horses and peered into the gloom. Jim Lewis slipped from his Saddle and cautiously Leeonn altered. Presently he came Back and spoke breathlessly. A a he a yonder alone.

By the others Jim Lewis cautiously led the Way into the deeper shadows where a ferry Barry was sleeping. They were somewhat puzzled at the absence of his captors but satan a Gulch presented Many rocks and crannies that might be preferred to the Star canopied sky As sleeping quarters and probably the condemned Man was bound and helpless. Presently they discerned the outline of a picketed horse and not far away a dark bundle on the ground that breathed heavily. A the Yonng Devil a groaned Gabriel to himself a sleeping like that tonight a in spite of Tufe silent vow that had Heen registered a half hour before Harry barrys friends moved As by one Accord to accomplish a set purpose. Quietly enough one a picketed the horse White Star and mounting his own beast led the other. Another pulled a Blanket from his Saddle and Tho Ether two assisted in tossing it Over Harry barrys head and bodily carrying that bundle of muffled threats and wriggling Muscles to Gabriel a mount where he was Laid across the Saddle in front of the lean ranch Man and in less time than it takes to relate the incident they were away Riding like a Streak for the state line.

It made a remarkable scene in Tho House of representatives. A touching scene occurred in the House of representatives a number of years ago when a aged member from new Jersey arose and for the flr3fc time addressed the speaker. All eyes were turned in his direction As he stood calmly awaiting recognition. was tall spare and erect. His venerable appearance and kindly expression coupled with most courteous manners at once commanded attention. As in husky tones he again said a emr. Speaker there came from the farthest end of t lie great Hall in a whisper bid Dir tin by heard by All the word Quot. A a proves Alice Ben bolts a moment later a j from the floor and gallery Many voices blended in the refer in a a done to you remember Sweet All e. Ben Bolt a the ova Ion immediately Fol owed was Sulci Sid rarely witnessed in the great Hall. Business was suspended for the moment and the hand of the new member warmly grasped by the chosen represent fives of All parties and sections. It was an inspiring tribute one worthily bestowed. The member was Thomas Dunn English author of the Little poem Sung in Palace and cottage which found its Way into All languages and touched All e. Stevenson in a something of men i have curious Eskimo living. Tho pallet rooms in Homes entirely devoid of furniture. A furniture is quite unknown in a common Eskimo a Home a writes the wife of the danish governor of Greenland Anna Bistrup in article on a Eskimo women in Green and in the Century. A the reuses of the eskimos Are All built of Stone and turf with the windows opening toward t lie Sun the one Entrance always being on the Side that is least exposed to the wind. Along the Back Wall runs a platform a pallet of boards a l de eighteen inches above the floor. It is from six to eight feet deep and through its whole length it is divided Irto rooms or spaces of eight or ten feet each room is separated from the neighbouring room by a partition of Board or skin. An open passage runs the whole length of the House along the pallet rooms and serves for the traffic of All the inmates but each pallet room claims tor its own the bit of passageway adjoining. A each pallet room is occupied by one family and there they stay night and Day. The Best pallet room is the innermost and is always occupied by the owner of the House or the oldest Lithe House has More than one worthy of the highest. The talk had turned to the orphan children of Henry Doane of Cherry Volle. The former resident asked the stage Driver How they had prospered. A a they be done first rate a was the Hearty response. A both of them have done first rate. A Joe Eddie he Learned the carpenters Trade and has worked right along and As for Emma Susan Well ill Tell you what somebody from Over the Center said to me Only last week about her in conversation regarding her husband. Quot Emma Susan married Frank Baxter one of the James Baxters. Well that Man from the Center he said to me a i hear Frank Baxters been chosen selectman. Well i done to know but what hell do All right for you a he said a but whether he a the Man for the place or not there a one thing certain if Ever a woman looked suitable to the position of selectman a wife and would do it credit Emma Susan Baxters that woman a a a youths companion. Ancient arithmetic. Too Many books. Barnaby Rich in his preface to a a new description of Ireland a published in 1600, writes a one of the diseases of this age is the multitude of books that doth so overcharge the world that it is not Able to digest the abundance of Idle matter that is every Day hatched and brought into the world that Are As divers in their forms As their authors be in their faces. It is but a Thrift less and thankless occupation this writing of books. A Man were better to sit singing in a cobblers shop for his pay is certainly a Penny a Patch but a Book writer if he gets sometimes a few commendations of the judicious he shall be sure to reap a thousand reproaches of the no use.

There is a Ray of vindictive Comfort for the modern Schoolboy in the fact that for Over 6.600 years his Schoolboy progenitors have been worried by just Guch problems in arithmetic As annoy him most among the archaeological discoveries made in Egypt is a papyrus Roll in excellent condition dating from about 1700 b. C. This Roll which had a Long heading beginning a directions How to attain the knowledge of All dark things a proves beyond doubt that the egyptians of that time bad a thorough knowledge of the elements of arithmetic. Numerous examples show that their principal operations with units and fractions were made by Means of addition and multiplication. Subtraction and division were not known in their present form but Correct results were obtained nevertheless. Equations Are also found in the papyrus. Here is one Turat brings the egyptian Schoolboy Home to us ten measures of Barley Are to be divided among ten persons in such manner that each subsequent person shall receive one eighth less than the one before him. Another example Given is there Are seven men each one has seven cats each cat has eaten seven mice each mouse has eaten seven grains of Barley each Grain of Barley would have yielded seven measures of Barley. How much Barley has beep lost the papyrus also contains the calculation of the area of a Circle attempts to Square the Circle and finally calculations of the cubic measurements of York Tribune. Enlivened the scene. But heroes improvisation did not help Leander much. Innumerable Are the tales of actors in difficulties. Here is one related of Christian Braudes the dramatist who in his youth belonged to a strolling company which played pieces of an extremely primitive kind. On one occasion the play was entitled a hero and Leander a the dialogue being left pretty much to the discretion of the players. It had been agreed however that hero was to be Coy and not confess her love for Leander till he had again and again expressed his readiness to be hanged burned and drowned in her behalf. But the lady was soft hearted besides being exceedingly fond of Brandes nor could she listen unmoved to the first passionate pleadings of the youth who explained that he had swum across the Hellespont to see her. A my dear Leander a she exclaimed a i cannot resist you. Accept my hand and my Leander knew not what to say. Ail his prepared phrases were useless. The manager came to his Aid with a loud whisper addressed to hero a in the fiends name improvise a few words and retire a the poor girl turning to the audience repeated her lesson. A in the fiends name i improvise a few words and retire a and then tripped off the stage greatly graphic. J Venus will not Charm so much without Lier attendant graces As they will a without Chesterfield. A Rossini joke. Rossini promised a place in the opera orchestra to a trombonist and then forgot about it says the musical courier. At one of his dinner parties the Butler announced the visit of this same protege. Rossini hastened to Welcome him and relieving him of his instrument disappeared a few moments to return with his Friend. Handing the instrument to the trombonist with a request to let the company hear him Rossini prepared to listen. Trombone to lips the musician Rose dismay no sound Cheeks bulging eyes distended. In vain the unhappy Man makes superhuman efforts to produce harmonious sounds. At last of Effort supreme with a sound like a hoarse Goose cackle there shoots from the trombone a mass of Sticky Macaroni. A no harm my Friend a said Rossini a you have proved yourself a Strong and the next Day the coveted position was offered to the trombonist Boston transcript. Riddle of gravitation. Nearly 260 years ago one of the greatest intellects connected with science turned his attention to gravitation. In that 250 years physical science has made rapid advances. A boy who has completed a years work in elementary physics could entertain Newton in electricity were it possible for the great philosopher to return to Earth. After learning of the great Progress in electricity i can imagine him in his eager desire for knowledge turning to the boy and expecting some Light on gravitation. Alas not Only the High school boy but not even the most Learned can give any definite information on gravitation. The problem is about where Newtou science monthly. Deserted at the end. William the conqueror was a Man of very Gross habit of body and at the siege of mantes was Hurt by the rearing of his horse the Pommel of the Saddle striking the King in the Abdomen and causing injuries from which he died in a few Days. Before his death he was deserted by All his attendants who stole and carried off even the coverings of the bed on which he Lay. The body remained on the floor of the room in which the King died for two Days before it was buried by charitable monks from a neighbouring monastery. A vague impression. A what is your idea of the character of lady Macbeth a a really a replied mrs. Cumrow a there is so much gossip about people connected with the stage that one scarcely knows what to Star. Done to trifle with a cold is Good advice for prudent men and women. It May be vital in Case of a child. There is nothing better than chamberlains cough remedy for coughs and colds in children.
