Johnson i his Avenger j later events showed a mistake j by Clarissa Mackie the men of the Lone Bull ranch had finished supper and were gathered about the Long table Over newspapers and cards. Most of them were smok ing and the air was Blue with the exhalations from pipes and cigarettes. The chinese Cook flapped into the room noisily. addressed the com Pany impartially in a High complain ing voice him Hally Bally no come eat Chow him Sabe 1 keep Chow Velly hot till him come around Harry Barry s seven comrades fixed piercing eyes 911 the Cook. Gabriel spoke smothering a Yawn with one lean hand before he did so. I guess he Sabe you la keep his sup per hot for him Lee. If you Don the paused significantly and the Wrath Ful chinaman found seven Blue muzzled revolvers focused upon different parts of his Anatomy. Understand snapped Gabriel. Lee s Straw slippers flapped restlessly on the Bare floor. His frightened Beady eyes roved from one to another of the Stern faces. nodded his head like a toy mandarin. Yes yes i Sabe Velly Velly much you will keep or. Barry s supper hot for him Velly hot said Lee forcibly. As hot As and he named the hottest place there is. The seven were still shaking with silent laughter Over the episode when there came the rapid thud of Smair hoofs and the widow Clancy slipped from her Saddle at the door and stood before them. Where is Harry Barry she demanded in a Low intense voice. All the pretty color had fled from her face and her pallor was enhanced by the vivid Auburn of her Lovely hair. Where is Harry Barry she repeated As they arose and clustered around her. We be been expecting him every minute. Aughter been Back Long ago drawled Gabriel. Me be his horse went lame suggested the Crane from the background. One or two others offered suggestions Caus of Haj a to witness his dashing arrival at any instant. At last they stood mutely be fore the Pale widow and waited for her to speak again. You re a Clever lot of fabricators she sneered. A Loor of concern came into Gabriel s face. You Don t think he s got into any trouble mrs. Clancy he asked quickly. As did t know her voice trembled with grief and anger. As if you did t know what has he done that you the men that he called his mates his friends yes every one of you what has he done that you should string him to the tallest Cottonwood at the Springs what thundered Gabriel pushing Forward. Harry Barry hanging where did you. Say the seven who loved the merry hearted Comrade whose grave danger had caused them alarm on another occasion listened with White faces while mrs. Clancy explain Din a shaking voice i saw him myself. His horse was staked under the tree. I was a Quarter of a mile off when i happened to see him dangling up there in the she hid her face in her hands and shuddered. I was looking for a lost Critter and had my mrs. Clancy said Gabriel heavily for he loved Harry like a younger brother there is some mistake. You can count on the seven of us to avenge Harry if harm has come to i am his Avenger said mrs. Clancy coldly. I want you seven to come along with the seven silently obeyed More from pity for the agitated woman than be cause they were fearful of her threats. Harry Barry s comrades were grief stricken at the disaster that had Over taken their Friend. What could he have done to have merited the severest penalty of that unprotected country where Justice is swiftly meted out wherever it is outraged with the dome of heaven for a courtroom and the Vic Tims for judge and jury Crane who was leading the file turned and spoke to Gabriel who was next. You remember once before we was hauled out to save Harry the time when we got the letter about the last Hope sure returned Gabriel and we found that the last Hope was the name of a mine he d discovered. Me be there Ain t anything in this he smiled hopefully. The widow Clancy s voice came nervously shrill from the rear. Laugh will you " she cried. One of you laugh again and i lip put a a a bul let through a a you she suddenly broke into tears and bowed her head on the neck of her Pony. Gabriel was beside her in an instant. You re mistaken mrs. Clancy he said soothingly. We was Only remembering that Harry scared us once before. You remember we be told you about the last Hope mine and How we Rode All night chasing that boy Only to find him alive and Well at the end of the trip and we can t help but think there s some mistake now and that Harry can t be done away but i saw him cried the widow plaintively. I saw him there his head drooping. Of it was awful we think we re sure that he would t do one of the things he d have to hang for was Gabriel s ear nest Assurance. Of course he would to mrs. Clan by lifted her tear stained face and turned Droit lied Blue eyes upon him. Gabriel Svinis Roji ered. To see the 6pimfcy Little widow giving Way to Accomac c. H., a. Saturday january 20, 1912. A Fiji was s i a r? to bar disposition that he was me be you la like a wait Here while we go and to suggested but the widow was fir i in her determination to be on the spot. You Ain t used to such scenes a am protested Crane mildly for they had paused to discuss the ques tion. V v i May As Well get used to it if it kills me declared mrs. Clancy an then fixing glowing eyes upon each in turn she said earnestly i want you to understand i appreciate you be been Good friends to me Ever since i came from the East and i know you veal ways been Good friends to Harry but if i m convinced that his being up there i your fault Why Why the whole seven of you will hang for it if i have to Doit myself the widow looked perfectly capable of engineering any num ber of lynchings at that As was the situation from one Point of View there was the tragedy in the background acid it was a gravely preoccupied party that swung Aro Imd the last Hill As the Sun dropped its lower rim below the horizon. A yellow Shaft of sunlight struck the cottonwoods and from the tallest one something dangled from a Stout upper limb. Don t you look a am wait till become Back commanded Gabriel with sudden authority and he pressed flask into her hand. The Brave hearted Little widow Sud Denly lost courage and bowed her Bead once More on the neck of her Pony. \ when the seven pounded to a stand still under the Cottonwood tree they slipped from their saddles and hesitated. Harry Barry s Roan horse Whin Nied sharply and then apparently from the air above them came a familiar voice peevish As if from Lon waiting. Don t stand staring like idiots i m plumb tired out banging up Here it said. The seven turned awed looks upon one As by one Accord the youngest and strongest the two Lew uses Jim and tim sprang toward the tree and fairly spurred their Way up into the lower branches from which they mounted higher. Then there came the sound of several voices raised in inquiry explanation and direction. After awhile three men came Down the tree instead of the two who had climbed up. The third Man was Harry Barry and the others were helping him for his limbs seemed stiff and his face was quite Pale. smiled As cheerily As Ever As they gathered around him. Another one on me he grinned sheepishly when they had administered restoratives to him. I was coming Back from dosing the sick Critter see if there was anybody i knew Sas haying around laugh if you Wanter be said As a knowing smile went the round of the group. I went up in the tree and i looked and i thought i saw Way off an old Friend of mine he showed All his White Teeth and so i was in a hurry to get Down and my Heel caught in a crooked Little Branch and i fell Ker plunk till a Handy Little stump of a broken limb caught hold of my Belt and there i Hung As Fine As silk. That was All Beautiful and Nice Only gents it was so that there was a Sharp Little prong Branch sticking out of the tree right behind my shoulders and i could t move hand or foot with out Ketching it like a knife so there i Hung till i went to sleep a while Back. When i woke up i was All numb and cold from hanging there. I m feeling better now thanks. Next thing i knew i heard you Fellers coming and seen you out the Corner of my they examined the Small ragged tear in Harry s shirt Between his shoulder Blades and they saw that the flesh was red and bruised from the torturing Branch that had pierced it. You had a Narrero escape said Gabriel soberly. I guess you won t get to breaking no Laws now joked hem Wayland. You be somehow got a taste of what a Necktie party feels like when you re the guest of Crane had Ridden ahead to break the Good news to mrs. Clancy and Gabriel suddenly vaulted into his Saddle and wheeled about. We chaps better be making for the Lone Bull. Lee s keep ing your supper hot for you Harry and Chere s a lady waiting around the Corner for you added Jim Lewis Over his shoulder As he followed Crane. A lady who a the question died on Harry Barry s lips As the widow Clancy s Little Pony dashed toward the Cottonwood tree bearing a slender erect figure with an Aureole of a Burn hair and dancing Blue was no Lack of color in her Cheeks As she saw the Stalwart form of Harry. Gosh let s get out of this gasped Jim Lewis As he followed the rest of the seven in their mad dash to escape the tender scene that would follow. Let s go Home and see Lee has sup per plenty hot for them suggested Gabriel and soon the faithful seven were dim dots on the twi lit Plain. Following them in the Mystic Light came Harry Barry and his sweetheart Riding slowly hand in hand. Putting it nicely. There is a Good Deal in putting a i thing nicely. A prisoner was being sentenced at the assizes the other Day. You hive a pleasant Home and a Bright fireside with Happy children sit Ting around it Haven t you said the judge. Yes sir said the prisoner who thought he saw a Way out of the diff culty. Well said the judge if the Happy children sit around the cheerful fire Side until you return they will stay there just two months."?London tit bits. Making his meaning Clear. Senator just returned from Washington or. Eeler. What is the senti ment of the people in your town concerning rising Fri tic Jan sternly interrupt ing ? senior. Y7 Don t Deal in senti ment in our town we Deal with Fae b of a 2, fac a Chicago Tribune. Japanese strategy. Ingenious tactics that marked the i siege of port much of the Slaughter that Marke the siege of port Arthur entered about the capture of what was known As 20i meter Hill. The japanese wanted thai Eminence not to Plant guns on it bul to observe the position of the russian warships anchored in port Arthur har Bor. Before the capture of the Hill the japanese tired into the town and the Harbor with an alarming and puzzling accuracy although the gunners Nevei saw their target. After a time the russians Learned that a chinese Fisherman was particularly fond of a certain spot in the har Bor. They watched him. If a shot fell beyond a particular ship he moved his boat in a corresponding direction. 11 a shot fell to the left the simple Chi Nese found the fishing better in that direction. Apparently he had no mis Sion in the world except to find the Best fishing ground. Finally it dawned upon the russians that his movements could be observed by japanese Field glasses. Fishing in the Harbor was prohibited and the japanese fire want wide. After a time the shots began hitting their Marks with the former accuracy. The russians looked for chinamen. They found one. liked to Wade into the shallow water apparently looking for crabs. had a White bucket and a Black one. If a shot fell Short or went beyond the Mark the White bucket moved in sympathy. If it went to the right or left the Black bucket was affected Only if a hit was made the buckets came together. Possibly it was by using the simple chinese that the japanese succeeded in mining the Entrance to port Arthur Harbor. On april 13, 1904, Admiral Makaroff came out at the head of his Fleet his Pennant flying from the Petro Palovsky. The flagship struck a Cable that connected three floating mines. One mine swung to port two to Star Board. In a few minutes Makaroff and his ship went Down. The Fleet turned and fled into port scientific Ameri can. Ornamental dress. The kind of clothes Washngton Han cock and Adams wore. John Hancock thin in person six feet in stature was very fond of Orna mental dress. wore a wig when abroad and a Cap when at Home. A Man who visited Hancock one Day a noon in june 1782, describes him As dressed in a red velvet Cap lined with Fine White Linen which was turned up two or three inches Over the lower Edge of the velvet a Blue damask own lined with silk a White silk White silk stockings and red Morocco slippers.

His bands were encased in yellow gloves. held a cocked hat with a cockade on it and its edges adorned with a Black Feather. wore knee and shoe buckles Arica at his left hip appeared a Long sword in a polished White leather scabbard with a polished steel Hilt. John Adams on the Day of his inauguration was dressed in a full suit of Pearl coloured Broadcloth and his hair was powdered. Chief Justice Dana of Massachusetts used to Wear in Winter a White Corduroy surtout lined with fur and held his hands in a Large Muff. The justices of the supreme court of Massachusetts wore until the year 179? Robes of Scarlet faced with Black Vel vet in Winter and Black silk gowns in summer. At the beginning of the last Century powder for the hair became unfashionable tying up the hair was abandoned coloured garments went out of use buckles disappeared and knee breeches gave place to trousers.?new York press. Malicious fruit. The stings that come with care Lesti handling of prickly pears.\u25a0 my first sad experience of the african prickly Pear was gained of a visa to the Market place of Algiers. The fruit was handed to us politely pee Leiby the Arab dealer and thus As w made acquaintance with its delightful coolness no suspicion of its evil Quail ties entered our minds. A few Days later adding the excite ment of a Little trespassing to the mor legitimate pleasures of a country ram ble vie came upon a Well Laden grou of prickly Pear Bushes and could Noi resist the temptation to help ourselves to some of the fruit. The result Wai woeful. Concentrated essence of Stingi Gnettie seemed All at once to be assailing hands lips and Tongue and our Skir wherever it had come in Contact with the ill natured fruit was covered Witla thick crop of minute bristly hairs apparently growing from it and Veno Mous and irritating to the last degree. Our silk gloves transformed suddenly into miniature Robes of Nessus had to be thrown away perfectly Unwar Able and the inadvertent use of oui pocket handkerchiefs before we had fully realized the extent of our misfortune caused fresh agonies in which nose As Well As lips participated. Formant a Day did the retribution of that theft haunt us in the form of myriads of tiny stings.?"Home life on an Ostrich first Aerial Post. It was used in China and a wild Goose was the Carrier. The ancient records of China reveal the fact that our Aerial Post was fore stalled some thousands of years ago aptly enough by celestial. It is True that the first postal air Man was an aquatic fowl and to this Day the Post in China is referred to As the convenience of the wild Goose and Pic Tures of that Bird still appear on cer Tain Stamps. The legend tells us that a tartar chief was offensive to the chinese emperor who sent a special envoy toward him. But the chief took the emperor s servant prisoner and made him Shepherd to his flocks. In this Condi tion of social degradation the unfortunate envoy languished for some years until one Day he captured a Wildgoose and his mind was illumined bythe Bright idea of using it to carry news of his whereabouts to his friends. With a letter secured to its leg the Samaritan Goose flew southward until virtue meeting its customary Reward it was killed in the grounds of the Palace by no less a personage than the emperor himself. The letter was read and a punitive expedition reposed tha Pearson s weekly. Attractions of a malay hotel.

In View of the history not Only of the Bahamas group but of the american continents As Well it is far from surprising that the identity of the famous Island should have been Long lost or that the re identification should have been delayed until the Middle of the last Cen Tury when Captain Becher of the Brit ish Navy by application of the description contained in 3olumbus journal to the course from Gomera to the e interested.

Thousands have testified to its Superior excellence. Sold by All dealers. I our puzzling Tongue. Snags a foreigner strikes in trying to. Master English. I in spite of certain undeniable Dis advantages the English language steadily makes headway. There Are few tongues so hard to master. One foreigner who has had his troubles. But has won his Way to a perfect command of the language has presented in the Bookman some of the Humours and some of the difficulties which belong to this richest of living languages. As a boy 1 heard a fantastic turkish legend which to my mind aptly Illus trates the a Tikal facts concerning the origin and formation of modern eng Lish. After creating the first parents of each of the races the Story runs Allah took a Large piece of meat and Cut Ting it into slices distributed them among All the people to serve them a tongues. For some reason the English Man was absent when the others received their share. At last he came into the presence of his maker and in mute humility begged him to put a Tongue into his Mouth. But nothing was left of the meat. So Allah was obliged to Cut a Little piece from the tongues of All the others and joining these pieces he fashioned a Tongue tor the englishman. The orthography of the English Lan Guage does not by any Means cry stain All of a foreigner s troubles. One of the most perplexing characteristics of the English Tongue is the fact that As a Rule the same word has different meanings. My dictionary gives to the verbs see Lead hold and draw four teen. Eighteen Nineteen and thirty two meanings respectively. Now. For a for Eigner to be Able to distinguish All these various meanings is a tremendous task. The words which have Only one or two meanings Are comparatively few. Is it surprising that a foreigner is often puzzled by the numerous and sometimes opposite mean Ings of Many an English word 7 just As an illustration consider the perplex Ity of a persevering Frenchman Over the meaning of the word Zis horse Sair he go Queen. What you say yes he is a fast a Pardon Monsieur but your Friend say he make fast his horse and he tie him to a Post so he not go at very True he is made fast by a zat cannot be. cannot go fast but what you Call a Man that keeps fast of he is a Good Man that does not eat on fast but i have seen one Bon vivant who eat and drink and ride and do every zing. Be people say he is a bad a Certa nement zen All be Days of his life must be fast no of course he Bien. Does he eat every Day certainly he zen How can he keep fast Why he keeps going to be by you Tell me to stand fast when you want me to keep still and go fast when you want me to run. How can i understand an easy medical degree. Time was when medical degrees were obtained at St. Andrews without All the difficulties of today and the Story is told concerning a Learned pro Fessor of old. Who had advised a particular student whom he had never seen in the flesh and of whose work he knew but Little to Call upon him at his House so that he might be examined for his degree. The morning was a Brilliant one and the Learned gentle Man found it impossible to resist the attractions of the links. Before set Ting out however he had left a Mes Sage with one of the maidservants and a conversation like the following ensued on the arrival of the student at the appointed time Are you the gentleman who was to Call this morn ing about a degree asked the girl on opening the door. I am was the reply. Well said the maid i was to Tell you that it was All right. Xou have passed scotsman. Not just what he said.
