"So, it seems, yon, too, are tired of the lumbering diligence." ••Yes," replied the foremost of .the two men; "the diligence did not exactly rait our convenience, so we took horses.''

The robbers stopped at the first convenient place to examine their prize, but their chagrin con be better imagined than described when they found that they hold only a securely bound parcel of waste paper. They know that they were suspected, and of course they dared not push the matter further. —Exchange. <. Dumas' Suffering. When Alexandra Dumas, the younger, wa* just ont of college, bis father took him on a hunting trip. Tbey put np at a farmhouse and occupied two little bedrooms which opened into each other. In the middle of tbo night the son was awakened and saw his father walking book aud forth. "What are yon doing?" asked the boy. "You see. I am walking." "You are sick?" "Yes, I am in great pain, but lam wed to it I have it every night" "I* there nothing to cure it?" "It i* incurable." "But can't it bo relieved?" "No, When it takes me, I got np and walk. If it is very bad, I go to reading." "And when it is insupportable?" "I go to work." It was true, and in later yean his son often aaw him iu tho night fitting at his desk writing with oue htaiaond holding upon bis stomach with the other. "How can you work always?" some 'one asked him on such on occasion. "I have nothing else to do," answered Duma*.—Youth's Companion.
