Mrs. Dennis Gallagher (tlio second "g" Is silent since they entered society) occupies ivn elegant if not entirely comfortable residence on the East Side. The house has bay windows everywhere, a cupola, and ;i tower. It has grown as the district has grown, from what was called "Shantytown" Into a tract of surpassing amirtmont houses. It has grown as Gallaher has grown, from a Castle Garden frcscoer in whitewash to a politician whoso barge lias gathered golden sands by the banks of the amber river of rum. It has grown as Mrs. Gallaher has grown from a thin woman in a nine- dollar paisley shawl of a Sunday to a stout woman in a "snleliido" saCquo nnd "solitary shtones" in her cars. Gallahor, In fact, is now n drum major, socially speaking, while Mrs. Gnllalier is a full brass band. The only thorn in Mrs. Gallahor's ttniple side has boon the G. Washington Millards. The G. Washington Millards live opposite. They are not people of color, because black is not a color, and they are black. When Gallaher, liko young Michael Angelo, was mixing pigments for the walls ho was destined later to own in fee simple, G W. Millard was a sleeping-car porter on the Central. Their fortunes grow together and they became rivals socially. They were neck and neck in tho matter of bay windows, and when Millard mountetl a cupola Gallaher angrily saw him and went ono better with the tower. This won the game, as the cupola had been set in tho center of tho Millard roof and there was no room for a tower unless built on a platform with supports. * Tho rivalry in display has been intensely bitter between the wives. Consequently when Gallaher came home litet Tuesday night tvnd saw the frown on the face of his bettor half ho knew something had happened. Tho dinner passed otf in silence. When Gallahor had taken a post-prandial plunge in tho "fish bowl" and was wiping his mouth on a napkin, which has a deafening monogram iu green embroidery and an emerald crest that was lost by one of the Irish kiligs at the light by tho Uoyno water, Mrs. Gallalier said to tlio bonne: "Ornriotto!" "Yes, madamo." "Take the children to rowl their shkates an tho new cimint sbidowalk. Don't be lettiti' thim tark to any odhor childhron, or yo naden't como back. Do yo moiml? "Yes, madame." And the parents wore left to themselves. Mrs. Gullahcr was silent for a fow moments, lost in sad and bitter musings. Gallaher, understanding the situation, was apparently absorbed in tho largo print, at a newspaper waiting for her to speak. Alter smno- minutes she said furtively, in n hourso whisper: "Dinnis!" "What?" "Tho naj'gur woman has a pug darg." "What's a pug darg?" "A dirty little baste wid a black nose all jammed in an' glash oycs." "An 1 what do she be doin' wid a pug dargP" "I/a'din" it up an' down all day long in friiit av the house to shpoito me" She breathed savagely and her eyes snapped with suppressed anger. Gallaher was aroused and angry too. "Kelly has a slynall bnlldarg ns '11 chew the head oll"n him," ho said. Tho lady shook her head. "It's not Frinch t'lmve bull dargs." There.WM silence, and each cast about for a counter to this body blow that the Millards had struck. Mrs. Gallahor spoke first. "Dinnis!" "WhatP" "Paycocks is nice." "What's paycocksP" "It's a big bun-id wid bull's-eye feathers in its tail. Yo Boon 'em in tha pairk." "Like a pintod turkey?" "That same." "Aha!" The next day Gallalier purchased the finest peacock that money could buy. Tho peacock arrived the next evening 'on. u, dray. The huge, coop was taken into the lanndry-roum, in the basement, and tho family gathered for a private view on the eve of tho public display. When tho coop door was opened it stopped out, took ono, two, and then three suspicious stops, craning its purple neck and looking about. The family stared, but said nothing. Noithor did tliOi peacock. "Has it a songP" asked tho servant girl, breaking the silence. "Faith, it's no diokoy bttrrtid," said Mrs. Gallaher contemptuously. "Wo ortor food it," said Donuis Gal- lahor Jr., agod 12. "What does it cat, waP" "Oil, thiiji things rttos chancywnro and rocks and ahinglo nails," .said his mother airily. She was fashionably familiar with tho gastric weaknesses of all fashionable pots. Dennis junior tried it with a broken cup, but it had no appetite. When somo corn was put in tlio cup it took throe grains, ono nt u timo, and with deliberation, It appeared to prefer Donnis junior." "Why don't he blow up hi« tail, map" usked ho. "There's no grash horo. When it gita ou the lawn yo'll see it pull tho sthring." Having inspoolod It (ill (hoy couldn't rust, tho bird, which after dismission in dofornnco to thu father had boon called Hubert Kmuuil, WHS locked up iu tho wagoii-hdiiso in thu ruar of tho lot, Mrii (luHiilirr was not satisliod. Bhi! douidi'd to call it hm-illo, but had been physiologically ovmTillml. When the family rutir«d to Iwd Mrs. Gal- lahor's mind was lillod with vlnioiiH of her front yard converted Into a tropical Jimglo In which peacocks), birds of punuliHii, anil new IxvuncU of elegant pluinago stood In lint* upon tho I i nibs of tho irous ami poured forth Ihoir lov in melodious roulades and thfiTii*ng roundelays. It wan the dead hour of night. Mrs Gnllnher's fuco hod sunken in its soft pillow and her rosy features were wrapped in a lace bonnet de nuil, which came down over bur ears and shut out all earthly sounds, It had cherry ribbon strings lied under her chin, All was still with one exception, which was Gallahor. At regular Intervals ho snored defiance lo the English throne of which he dreamed. Suddenly upon the stillness cnmc n long, loud, blood-curdling scream that made the windows rattle. It was awful. "What's that?" cried Gallaher starting up. What is Mrs. "Go on homo," said tho~po1iccmonto MJllard, and ho wont. Mis il,i.r "Hotter do nothln' about it, Misintr said he. "It'll bo crosa- .

"Caw h orrrkl I" The horrible scream was repeated. Gallahur sprang to the floor. "Dennis—O—Oi'11 choke to death— wid this—darn—thing." Mrs. Gallaher was spluttering with terror. She had pulled her bonnet At, nuil strings into a hard knot, and was strangling. "Howld yure jaw, will ooP' said Gallaher angrily. Ho was listening Intently. Tho string parted and freed her ears. She listened, too, still scared. "Musha, I hope it's not wan o thim hurrah away murders." "He has no nade to cut her troat an a noight liko this," said Gallaher shivering in his night gown. "Av- he houlds her still she'll freeze quick enough." "Cawhorrrk!" It came again. Ho grabbed his socks and drew on his trousers. As he pulled on his coat ho looked out of the front window, and by the light of the street lamp saw George Washington Millard in front of the house and looking up at tho windows. Instantly angry no flew down stairs and opened the front door. "Aha," said ho savagely, by tho way of greeting. "Hcah, posey. Come hoah," said Mr. Millard wooingly to the pug dog which had followed, him over. He pretended not to sec Mr. Gallaher. "Is it watohin' my grash grow yo are?" asked Gallaher sarcastically. "Nice doggie; good doggie," said the other, patting it. "What do you mane?" demanded Gallaher, going down the walk. Subterfuge was useless. "I came over, sah," said Mr. Millard in precise tones, "because I heard shrieks, sah, in your domicile, sah. I thought I recognized your wife's voice, sah!" "Howly Mary!" ejaculated Mrs. Gallahor from an upper window. "Do that black naygur say me vice is like that?" This was too much. It could not be left to Dennis to adjust. She throw on her petticoats hurriedly. Meanwhile tlio seriousness of the occasion had caused w, suspension of hostilities between the men. They agreed that it was evidently the murder of some woman in a vacant lot in the rear of Gallaher's wagon-house. Visions of gore and bloody knives made Gallalier indisposed to investigate it by himself, particularly in his defenseless condition. Ho Invited Millard to accompany him, and. the latter accepted. The two men, followed by the pug, passed on tiptoe along the alleyway at tho side of tho house, crossed the yard, and approached the wagon-house, through which they would pass to the lot. The minute he opened the door something came flapping against him in tho darkness, scratched his face, and knocked him down. It was tho peacock trying to get out. Gallaher was a little rattled anyhow. He had forgotten tho bird, and he yelled with fright as lie scrambled to his feet and ran across tho yard. Millard and the E ug had been there some seconds when o arrived. Ho looked savagely at Millard to detect tho faintest smile. If he had seen one ho would have killed him on the spot. "It's me paycock," he said hoarsely, and he said no more, but there was blood in his eye. He found a lantern and lighted it. Then he wont back and opened the door carefully. Tho pug, aching for destruction, spied tho peacock. "Broo-oo," croaked he with tho coarse bark peculiar to pugs. "Cawhorrrk!" screamed the bird defiantly. Posey abandoned his strategic advantage between his owner's legs and un- oourteonsly llewatit Tho peacock.glad to moot something it could whip., mot him half way. It struck with its spurs, and lifting with its wings, knocked tho tloff over. Posoy squalled with terror arme ALCOHOL.
