Yet tune attracted hi mi. He turned briskly, ami with j bi� pen behind his ear lie addressed the j man who was only one of fifty who had ! oDHwered bis fulverti.seiuent that morning for four workmen. "What makes you expect to learn faster than other folks? Art; you any smarter*" "I'll not say that," said the man, "but I'd bo wishing to; that 'ud make it easier." "Aro you uned ti� the work?" "I've done a bit of it." . "MncbV "No, yer honor; I'll tell no lie; but I know n bit about tins."

Xo; I've been taken in by Irish bands before, and I �won't hav.3 another." "The Virgin will have to be aftber bringing'em over in her two nrms, lliin," said the man despairingly, "for I've tramped nil day for the last fortnight, and niver a job can 1 ^et, and that's the last p'.'imy I bave, yer honor, and it's but a half one." Ah be spoke bespread his palm open and displayed an English halfpenny. "Bring whom uveri1" linked Mr. Camp, arrested by Ihu odd speech as bo turned away. ".list Nora and Jamesy," "Who aro Lhey?" '"Ilia wan's nie wife, the ot her mo child," euld the in an. "Oh, sir, jist thry ma llow'll I hriug 'cm over to me if no oua will give, me a job!" I want to be aiming, nnd the whojc big city seems aginst it, and mo with arms like tbim." He bared bis nrmfl to tho elbow aa he spoke, and Mr. Camp looked at them and then at his face. "I'll hire you for a week," ho said; "and now as it's noou go down into the kitcheu nnd ask the girl to give yon your dinnur-a hungry man can't work." And with an Irish bles^ng the new hand obeyed, while Mr. Camp went upstairs to bis own meal, Ilooney worked hard and actually learned fast. At tho end of tho week ho was on-gaged permanently, and soon was the beet workman in the shop, lie was a great talker, but not fond of drink nor of wasting money. At; his wages grow he boarded every penny, and wore tho same shabby clothes in which he had made his first appearance. "Ivery cent 1 spend," be said one day, 'puts oft tho bringing Nora and Jamesy over, lietter no coat to mo back than no wife and buy by me llreside, and auybow, H'k alow work waving." It was hIow wort, but he kept at it. Other men, thoughtless and full of fun, tried to make him drink, coaxed him to accompany them to places of amusement or to sbai-e in their Sunday frolics. All in vain. Hounuy liked fun, liked companion �hip, but he would not delay that long looked for bringing of Nora over, and he was not "mano enough" to accept favors of others which he would not repay. Ho kept on Ids wuy, a martyr to bis one great wish, Uvlug ou little., workiutf at niirht . any extra jou by which be could earn trifle, and talking to any ouc who would Ubiteu of his one great hope and of Nora and little Jumeuy. At Orat tho men, who prided the in selves on being idl Americans, and on turning out the best work in the city, made a sort of butt of Kooney nnd his Irish ways. Bafc be won their hearts at last, and when ono day* mounting ou a workbench, he shook bis little bundle,wrapped in a red handkerchief, before* thefr eyes and shouted; "Look, boyft, l'\v got i-ln* "whole at bint; Via goin' to bring Nora and ./amesy over at last!" ull felt a sympathy in his joy, and Mich grasped his bruwnv hand in cordial eongratulat ions. They parted in a merry mood, most of the men goitifi to comfortabl" homes. Hut Hooney's resting place was a poor lodging house, where he shared a garret with four other men, and in the joy of his heart the poor fellow exhibited his handkerchief with bis hard turned saving*_tied up in a hard wad in the middle, before he put it under his pillow and fell asleep. When be awakened in the morning he found his treasure gone. Some villain had robbed him. At first Kooney would not. believe it lost-He searched every corner of the room, shook his quilt and blanket, and begged thoM'about him to "unit, joking atid give it back." Hut at last he realised the truth. "I> any nr..n that bad that's thaved from me?" ho asked. "Bovp, 1b any man that bad?" And sonv> one answered, "No doubt of it, Rooney; it's stole." Then Kooney put his head down on bis hands and wept. It seemod more than he could bear-to have Nora and the child put mouths away from him again. I Jut when he went to work that day it fieeined to all who saw him that he had picked up a new determination; his hands were never idle. At noon he scratched out a letter, blotted and very strangely Kcrnwlt'd, telling Nora what had happened, and the men noticed that he bad no meat with his dinner. Iude--d irom that moment he lived on bread, potatoes and cold water, and worked as few liieiieviT worked before. It grew to \v the talk of the shop, ami every one wanted to help Kooney. Jobs were thrown in hi-, way, kind words and friendly wishes helped him mightily, but tin power could make him share the food or drink of any other workman. That seemed a .sort of charity to him. .Still ho was helped along. A piv-eut from Mr. Camp at pay day set, Norn, as he said, "a week nearer." The little hoard grew faster than the first. At before be huped it, he w:ts able to say, "I'mgoiiigto biing them over," and to t-how his handkerchief, iu which, as before, he tied up his earnings-this time, however, only to hii friends. Cautious an urn g * oilier day and ho was as Usual theormii and his theory was fearfully and wviidwt'v.My made. Said he: "Silver is porous. You can tell that it. is b.-.'ausc it sweats in hot weather. Fill a silver pitcher with water and the water comes through on the outside." So on ad libitum, while the druggist smiled and said, "If your knowledge of other subjects is as accurate us that upon the poies of silver it is valuable."- Lewistou Journal. A BARBED WIRE SAVED HIM. Startling Kxpcrienca of a Man Looking for Laud In Washington, Walla Walla, Wash., Sept. 9.-I met an old fanner from eastern Iowa today who is out on a tour of inspection for a location. He crossed the plains in a wagon train "way back in the fifties," but, not finding what he wanted, he wandered back again and settled down in eastern Iowa. After the lapse of thirty years he has concluded that he iB not in the right place, and now, at the age of GO, is hunting a home where he can grow up with the country. lie has an old chum who crossed the plains with him when both were young men. His friend remained and became a sheep grower in northeast Oregon, and he has amassed a fortune on sheep and wool. He lives thirty miles from Pendleton. Ore., beyond the Umatilla reservation. The "prospector" had come to look at the Indian land soon to bo thrown open to settlement. But he says the Indians are keeping all the best of the land. He reached Pendleton quite recently, and expected to meet his old time chum. But the latter had not called for his mail for a month, and w.ts not on hand. The prospector inquired at the livery stables to lind a team from the settlement, without success. Hut bo did succeed in attracting attention to himself as a stranger looking for a place to settle, and some moneyless, or at least conscienceless, man shadowed him around the city. He was on the outskirts of tho place, and discovered an old, unoccupied house on the river bank. He walked into the yard and passed around the building, when he was startled to hear u sound in the house, and looked around just in time to see a rough looking man in a mask jump from an open window toward him. It seems the fellow had followed him unobserved, and when he went around the old house the robber bad rushed in through tho half open door to spring upon hia intended victim in tno back yard. His plan would no doubt have carried but for the presence of an old barbed wire fence in the weeds. The fellow did not observe the tangled wirefl, and made a mad rush at his victim. But his feet tripped on tho wire with such force as to dislodge it at one end, and it coiled up and entangled tho would be robber. It was only the work of a moment. The lowun took in the situation and mode ten foot strides toward the city. Ho looked back after reaching the settled street, and saw his adversary disappear down the river bauk. He told me he had been in unpleasant quarters before, but had never had *> close a call, to his knowledge. He went to a stable, hired a broncho, mounted, and set off on the trail that led to his friend's ranch. He took to saddle at 2 o'clock in the afternoon, and never drew rein until he had galloped twenty-eight miles over the suuds, and dismounted nt the cabin door of his friend. He says he will look further before he settles down to farming, and will keep away from empty shanties. W. O. Benton. very poor lot At ono time wo hud a curiously ignorant fellow of unbounded Industry and most admirable impudence to assist in this work. He got facts in an almost embarrassing quantity, and these were written up for him after he returned to tho office. Ho walked up and down Fifth - and Madison avenues every afternoon during the entertaining season,, anil wherever there was an awning over the sidewalk ho would go in, and by hook or by crook learn all that there was to be learned. Ho did not in the least look like a reporter- that is, liko tho popular idea of a reporter-and ho could with entire gravity assume any character that for the moment would suit his purpose. His object was to see the mistress of the house. Then ho assumed his character of reporter. If she objected to giving him any facte ho would argue tho point with her until she saw the matter in tho proper light, and came to tho conclusion that if anything were to bo said it were bettor that it should be accurately said. When Gen. Garfield was to be inaugurated as president this man was sent to Washington to assist in tho preparation of the account of tho inaugural ball. Tho telegraph at that time was not used as extensively as it now is, and an effort was usually made to get as much of the material by mail in advance as possible. This society reporter Wits asked to get descriptions of tho dresses which ladies of prominence would wear at the balL As soon as Gen. and Mrs. Garfield reached Washington our reporter called on tho president elect, and said lie wanted to get a description of the dress Mrs. Garfield was to wear at tho ball. The general said the dresses were not unpacked. Tho reporter departed and called again. Tho dresses were yet unpacked. Again and again he called, always to bo put off. At length he caught the general and said to him in his breezy way: "See here, general, you aro busy and I am busy; it would save time for both of us if you would lot mo see that dress now," Gen. Garfield evidently recognized the truth of this, and took the reporter at once to Mrs. Garfield's apartments, where the dress was displayed and the reporter dismissed. A few moments later ho entered the Washington office of his uews-paper wearing an expression of great disgust. The correspondent knew of the frequent visits to Gen. Garfield's hotel, and said with a smile; "Well, you have not seen Mrs. Garfield's dress yet?'' "Oh, yes, I have," said our reporter, tn a contemptuous tone, "und it am't uothing but a $60 dress, nohow." Jno.
