He had a Fiat like a Kli div a Aiumu and a depth of Chest worthy of a Prizio to him a he never had in in known to lilt Hia hand against a Fly. To Laibly if he Hail been a Udall into ii. that to waa at the Merey of every Superior he would have born a Isaac ibo ind und ready for combat a the most Arabi Tiona Little Man alive. It was the sight of so much gentle Iticia. With to much strength waa very at Tractive and always gave Auch a reas Juhng idea of latent Force As inclined one to place unlimited Confidence in him. Perhaps Auch unlimited Confidence is not Alto Fether a desirable thing to receive bringing with it a it Apt to do an unfair Amaru of and reposing More burdens on Tho shoulders than Fate and Fortune have already or dered. At any rate Philip Murray de that it brought him into Tho wont of scrape of All his after nil u not very Strong language it is to in doubt cd if to Ever had another of any sort whatever. Going Paiit Fhil of asked or. War Mold acting him just about to Purchase it through ticket Home. I did t know you thought of it quite so answer of the Young k int opening a thick Little Wallet. Going Back to rather tired i roughing it. Live me a lower Naid he then to the agent a near the Middle of the car As you so you Choqui the Middle said or. Warmoth. Yea of air motion there i n of a us of roars anywhere. But take a Forward for r to Havo a bursting wheel put a Spike through Juat the same possibility of retaking Down in Tho Middle As of being Hurt by Tiu wheel sir. No on account of the air chiefly to As to get a whiff of the outer world now and then and not have u whole earful of Bod breath blown in my Foo ii every time Tho door Well i m glad you be something to by for the seat Over the in Case i m Over reduced to Hobson s Chotoo. But hem you a my lower berth directly in the within half on Inch of the Middle said the agent toss Iii him the ticket. Thank i Philip clipping i. Wallet again. I beg your said a gentle Manly Young Stripling whose Ivd hair nine Chu Stuut Mustache it truck Philip u he turned were thrown out by a Blue to fever great coat he the harmonious and shadows of a picture but i vim t you left Bome of your changer ainu in pointed to a Piroue of fractional Morency lying on Tho counter. I Philip took out his Walitt again and it he wan always a Little Deli in Lia As r in instant then the Young Man sat Down upon the Edge of the berth More faint and sick than All the rolling and rocking of the car had made him on the night before. Plainly he had been robbed. Did not immediately conjecture. He was too much stunned to consider anything but the Mere fact and its immediate re lation to himself. All he Money was in the Hundred dollars and some change for he had been a Dalai red Man spending pretty much As he went had not even a Loose Penny any where in he wicket a to buy a paper to get a breakfast not even a dry Roll be had not a five cent piece to take him in a car the three Miles to the other train when he should reach new York. Ami. Meanwhile Between Here and new York there was ample time for starving. He had lost every cent he had a the world. And worse infinitely Wane than that he had lost or. Warmoth s draft All work and worry of years the self denial the saving the Hope the happiness and More than All. Trust Money. But in a moment or two the stunning effect had passed off and he began to Marvel and question and see if anything was to be done about the mat Ter at All. It must be done at once. As it was perhaps the thief had left the train at that morning station. Beckon ing one of the porters he sent him for the conductor and when that official arrived briefly told him the conductor stared at him aghast. If he were acting and were in Rte Cha bed was apart again and poked Aad pushed and Kikm and shut away the were displaced the floor was swept All was Pat to rights again and nothing rewarded the search. The Knprr berth was examined and disposed of. Too for the occupant had not returned and a brakeman now remembered some one s getting off at a station where they stopped in the night. My purse went with said Phil nothing Eai Irr. He could have seen me undress and arrange my clothes. A could have satisfied himself that i was asleep could Hare slipped Down hidden by the curtains have wormed his hand in under my Pillow and gotten hold of the Waistcoat and slowly and gradually have worked it out. Helped by All the bumping and thumping could his movements to be unsuspected by a Sleeper have a econ a the pure and then to delay detection put the Waistcoat Back where be found it. He had half Tho night to do it in. That waa Tho Way and that waa the i treat said the conductor. For if it was the care a hopeless As i . Ton might As Well track a Straw blown by the wind As a casual passenger leaving a train in the Woods at a half hour period of Tor ment to poor Phil who did not dare to Bope that Hia Wallet Ronld be found and lot "4 not dare to despair of it and to whom the work of suspecting Aad questioning and searching he fellow men even with their consent was nauseous. Half the Pao Engen had been routed out Ertain ones known to Phil he had declined to disturb the whole car had been examined the whole floor a wept and they were As Well off As they were before. Every one in the car. Witt the exception of a few sleepy sluggard had taken an interest in the Case every one looking in that first innocent face of Phil a had Boh eved the Story at Onoe and implicitly or cry Oate us Mart the victim might just As easily have been himself. The last Hoite of the thief examining treasure trove and finding within it the card of cer Tain famous general of cavalry which had been Given to Phil by some one As a autograph of the great Man might fancy the Wallet to be the Cavalryman s property and restore it through fear of More serious consequences thaa follow the thefts from those of Lees importance Hope had gone at last and left the unfortunate Young Man As wretched Ashk worst enemy if he had one at All would desire. Poor Phil stood leaning against a seat at one end of the car. The picture of de Waistcoat not buttoned his Coats on either Arm. Lie had for gotten sea sickness toilet everything. He Pride was destroyed he Honor was lost be was mined. For he own Money he cared Only As Littky As might cared of eared nothing for in comparison with the Trust Money. He saw he Friend broken Aad crushed going to the bad desperately or eke be ginning Over again the Long course of self Dankl and labor that had made him old before he time he saw the wife s sorrow the children s deprivation he saw himself loaded to the Earth with a debt of seven thousand dollars at the age of pay the Money Back with interest and to the utmost Farthing was something whose intention was a inseparable from he As the fact of its loss. Asleep a what right had he to sep f lie with another Man s life Aad Fortune in he Warmoth had watched More nights than with not have paid a portion of the debt by waking Bow for Warmoth he not y frit thai rough Man who had accosted him when buying he ticket Prario As after noon and whole and hair Aad Chestnut he bearer great coat had off to neb advantage. Philip looked away from Man and oat at the win the Rosy morning was filling All Crisp snowy world them with lasers the Graat aurer shold of a wan abbe reaches of Prairie stretched far away like and promises of infinite things it was impossible for him to be Lieve that in such a Bright clean spark Ling world As the there could breathe so foul and mean a thing As a thing belonged to reeking City to the caverns under old wharves to the fart life of a people that live by night not Here by the Side of honest men. In the Beautiful Sunshine and confronting him he despised himself for he auspicious. Well gentlemen 1 said the conductor. We May Wall finish the work. I believe you have All kindly granted examination except i am quite at your disposal said Tho but Comer. And glad to Holu. On a Good work. Things Are getting to such pass that we shall soon Havo to ask for a Legal enactment that no one shall be allowed on a sloping car with out first exhibiting a certificate of Good moral they were going around a number of Short curves just then at a Good Speed before slowing for the next station and the Cluster of men were swinging and swaying hither and Yon As the car s motion Flung them about the last Comer planted a a aim on the conductor s shoulder to steady himself As at that moment the car tipped More than us Ual. Of i beg your Pardon for stepping on your foot said he drawing Back naturally. Yon did t step on my said the conductor drawing Back too. Immediately every one look on Tho floor perhaps to see whose foot had been trodden on and there by the Wallet Phil stooped and picked it up and Tore it open and discovered its contents Safe. His first thought was Only to vindicate himself to make Sura that Warmoth s draft was intact but with the next he looked up a White a us eyes and in another instant the red haired Stripling would perhaps Havo been Only a Pinch of ashes Between his mighty fingers. But the conductor bad been before May be seen the awful threat in those kindling of Philip s. If he had himself been a Tiger filled with a thirst for blood he could not have sprung at the Man s Throat More savagely clutching him with one hand whip with the other he pulled Dawn the signal rape to the Engineer unlocked and open the door just u brakes were whistled Down and then whirled the poor wretch through and out upon the put form and lifted him into the air and sent him flying with by foot put he cried with he parting kick. My train s no place for you put for the Prairie Yon Paris. France has lost Ona of her Moat noted men one who has been cneely identified with the administration of the us for Many years. Monsieur de Paris is dead. Not a Prince who takes his title from the French capital but that important functionary the Public executioner. The real name of m. A Paris was aimable Marie Jean Heinrich. He was born in Alsace. His father was the pub Lic executioner of Toulon and the son manifested such Peculiar Talent for his vocation that he obtained the Post of executioner of Paris against five Hun dred and fifty two competitors. For fifty four Yean he had pursued his life la the Xor a correspondent of Amatuni writes from k i have received Searal utters from friends in Massachusetts Nebraska As a to state to emigrate to. Allow me to answer them. Let me first say. The soil of Nebraska u Nch Over almost its entire i remember tout who accompanied the excursion party nearly five years ago at the opening of the Union Pacific Railroad represented the Putte Valley As very Rich while other of tha state were comparatively poor. This is a mistake. Land 100 Miles from the Putte either North or South Aad 200 Miles West fran. Set in in Sasil tues Iii Sitira a in the Putte Sori Valley. The Soo is a Sand Loam deep porous and capable of yielding from so to 30 bushels of com per acre for ten successive Yean without a single Load of manure. Tho surface is More rolling than Illinois and Eastern Iowa just enough indeed to obviate the necessity of drainage. There Are no swamps and no Rocky Barren Heights till von reach the Western portion. I doubt if an equal area in any other part of the country has so Little waste und As the 200 Miles Square on the Eastern end of the state. To climate this country May be subject to More severe bad extreme changes than Massachusetts. But the average temperature is several higher Here. Our Winters usually last from about the 25th of december to last of february with a fortnight frequently of april weather in february followed by a fortnight of february weather in March. This Spring weather in february followed As above m March has hitherto proved the great obstacle to successful fruit culture. Still our people Are learning to successfully Over come thu difficulty and there to doubt that this u yet to be a great fruit growing state. Our Summers Are two months longer Between than in Massachusetts. July and August Are very warm by Day with Cool refreshing breezes at night. People do not work As Bard Here As in Massachusetts. Everything is done with machinery. A Man Here takes care of 30 acres of Small Grain wheat Oats and Barley Aad 40 acres of Corn with a Little help in har vesting with less muscle Wear than in ten East u required to tend one fourth the amount it is a general opinion at the East that this country is liable to suffer from drouth. I think there need be Tery Little trouble from this cause. Our Rains Are not to abundant As they Are at the East. But to do not need them.

I have followed the roots or Cox Down Cion Acx in cities and have found the moisture sucked no from nearly As Many inches More by the com Hill it is Only necessary in dry time to keep the cultivator going so that the surface of the ground will not bake.

Honest men won t object to that for disgrace the greatest of know How to hold Sor hold up Only frit that the wont disaster possible in All the store of ilk had befallen him. But the worst Dii did not his head. He began at lost though to put on the remainder of he mechanically and paused waiting for some to out of Littky dressing room beside him.
