PULLING OUT FOR "LAPS." -i'ruT: .ITU! Vst Ihrir vr.iy;" so they nil Fiartod np, folloTVins the trnil, but no 1>O3'S could t>o found. At last they roach-d the top and h<-£ran Fort «,.„„ Tri% , ned redMtr !» n . to hnnt about. All at one* they found "Please, mamma, may we go In the woods and have some lunch In the little basket? Oh I do Bay yes, mamma; It 19 inch a nice day to be out In the woods." This was eagerly aaked by one of three little boyn, who were spending their summer vacation In tte country on a fruit farm, where there are also lovely woods, with great, tall redwood tree*, towering up 100 feet, and evett more, toward the blue Bky and God who made them, and here and there a madrona tree grows, with Ita bark peeling of In Its own peculiar Way,' leaving tha tree bright red and a» smooth as satin; now aud then the bark clings In flakes of pale' yellow. Close by we find the beautiful bay tree, with Its long, pointed, fragrant leaves, and all 'about such .lovely ferns. Beyond the •roods la H mountain very steep and rugged. These woods werea great temptation to the boys. Stnart was no anxious to go, and Herbert and Romaey came running in and added their pleading to his. • Their mamma decided that they could go, but said: "It la too warm for yon to walk all the way, so you had better take Old John." He was a steady old boras, who had done his share of work, and the children were allowed to rld« him about the ranch. At this the boys clapped their hands and shouted: "OhI that's flnel We can hare Old John and take turns riding." X So their mamma put np some lunch for them. She knew boya have a way of getting hungry, whether walking or riding. They kissed her good-by, and started off In merry glee. ' Old John looked at them with his gentle eye?, as much as to say, "Do you really think this la fun, boys? I had much rather lie down under a' big oak tree In the pasture and take a nap until dinner time." But, nevertheless, he went along In bin careful way, and, as their mamma watched them go down the hill she caught a glimpse of a hat waved In the air, heard the sound of their last " Good iby, mamma," shouted with the full force of sound langS) and the echo across the hills caught it, and back it came to hor as she turned "away with a glad heart to sea her dear boya so happy, and went about her morn- Ing duties. Tha hours passed without her realizing how long they had been gone, and they did not know how long it was, either. They went to the woods, and, after running about awhile, decided to eat their lunch, and then went np to a spring to get a drink of clear, cold, sparkling water. They caught it In their tin cup as It trickled down over the rocks and passed through a bed of green ferns that left It clear and cold. Just as they finished drinking Stuart •aid: * .... "Say, boys, let's climb tho mountain. I' don't think It looks so very steep. We can take turns on Old John." "All right," answered the others; "but what If Old John can't cUmb?" • "Oh, I guess he can, 1 ' said Stnart. So the others got on the horse, and lie trudged along beside them. Old John picked his way very carefully over the stones and through the brush. . • After awhile Stnart was so tired the boys got down and he took his turn on Old John, and so they pushed on and np. At last they raached the top of the mountain. It was very nice to be go high up. . They could see the broad ''Paclllo "sparkling In the sun. They were tired, bnt didn't mind, and thought it was fun. Somehow little boys can do so much for fun and play, but get tired very quick when It comes to working. . I wonder why It la. • ' Well, by this time It wns after 13, and their mamma began to feel uneasy, because they didn't come homo; but grandpa said: "I expect they have found a nice, cool place under a tree, and, being tired, have fallen' asleep. They will be home In a little while." Bnt alas! they were anything bnt asleep. They now became tired looking about and watching Old John eat grass and leaves, and all at once found they were very hungry, and tried co Und tbe path they had gone np by, bnt couldn't find it. They hunted and hunted, and aa -.they looked down the mountain it seemed so much steeper than when they went up in the fresh morning,.air, with'light hearts. It seemed to them so steep that If they tried to go they would just fall over and roll down and down over the -. 'stones, and they didn't like the thought of that. In a little while more they lost all their courage, and sat down and cried; then, as they became more and more lonesome and afraid, their cries became screams. At last they were worn out, and BO were forced to be quiet for a while. Old John kept eating In a contented '•Way. It did not matter to- him now whether he was on the mountain or in the pasture, for he found plenty to eat. After a time the sun went down, and it ' began to grow dark; then the boys broke out crying again. Old John looked at them as If to say: "What 4s the matterf I'm going to lie down under this, big tree. There are lots of dry leaves and I shall have a nice bed." 80 he lay down and stretched out hie legs and made himself very comfortable. The boys came to the conclusion they ' would have to stay In the woods all night, so when they had exhausted themselves a second time with crying and shouting, they were'BO sleepy they couldn't keep their eyes open; so they lay down between Old John's legs and pnt their aching heads against'hia body arid pushed their feet down In the warm leaves. All at once Herbert called ont: "Boy», we must say our-prayers;" so they got down on their kuees, folded their dirty Little hamlH, and -w(th trembling lips soldi '. j "Now I Uy ma.' 1 ! It seemed to comfort' them, and telling Romaey to lie in the middle, because he was the smallest, they cestlwl np close together and were soon sound asleep, worn out with their long tramp and crying. Old John, too, fell asleep, unheeding Ota weight ot their heads, which by degrees slipped down to the ground, they were so tired. They tossed about, "Wl, wch turn made a .few moru leaves B^.'up' and fall down over them; so they rvere well covered from the night air. , > • ' Weil, all this time their mamma had been very sad. Grandpa went avray right • *iter dinner, never doubting tha boys • would be home In a llttl* while. Just as tha big moon came np from ba- . ilnd the v«cy luauat&lg wluru the boys lay aaiaap, grandpa unJ Che mob-drove la QM jafd.

They " • • • 1 all through th* woods, nnd then to Old John, lying under the trre fnst asleep, but tho boys were so covered with lenves they didn't ceo them. Grandpa was very tired, and s.ild he muxt rust, while the other men looked about utill more, so he sat down by Old John's feet. In a moment something moved under him; he felt about and found a little foot; He started np and called the men, Thoy pushed the leaves away, nnd much to their delight foand the three boya, but they were BO sound asleep It was hard to wake tbem. At lust they opened their eyes and were very glad to see grandpa's kind face. Tin men each took a tired, sleepy toy In their arms ant! were soon down the mountain, Old John following, as they had roused him up after finding tho boya. At the edge of the woods they found the horsea where they had tied them, and wese soon home. Mamma took her boys upstairs and pnt them to bed yithout a word of reproof; her heart was too full for words other than of thankfulness. In the morning the boys came to her and Stuart said: "Mamma, we boys have been talking over getting lost yesterday. It was awful, mamma, and we were so tired and scared; but we think now It was very naughty of us to go up tbe mountain •lone, nnd we know we'msde-you feel bad, 'cause yon cried when wo came home, and we feel very sorry. Will you forgive ns, mamma?" "Yes, my dear boys," shereplled; and then they told her all about it, and promised not to wander away again, and they kept their promise. They still had nice rides on Old John, but did not go far away. One day, after Romnev had been riding a good deal, he came to bin mamma and said: •"! think there is something the matter with my spine." She was quite startled, and undressed him to see what could bo the matter. She had to laugh when she found two big blisters, not exactly on his Bpiiie. He said: "Now, mamma, if you had them you would not laugh, for they hurt awful bad?" She put salve on,them, and in a day or two they were all well. One night Old John did not come home from the pasture. The next day the boys went to look for him, and, much to their sorrow, found him under a tree, cold and /dead. They ran crying to the house. Grandpa comforted them by saying, "Well, boys, I urn sorry about Old John, because you loved him and enjoyed riding on him, but he has done good service and is very old, and I really think we onght to be glad, for he might have been real sick, as he .was once, and you wouldn't want him to Buffer." , ' "Oh, no!" Bald the boys, "bnt we wish he eonli have lived and been well. We sha'n't forget that ho helped you to find ns when we were lost in the woods on the mountain-, and covered with leaves, real 'Babes in tho Wood.'"—Pacific Rural Press. RAILROAD TRAVEL IN RUSSIA. Equipments and Limited Accomo- <lutloii8-~Hlaw Tluie nnd XX>UK Stops. Railroad travel In Russia reminds one of that in certain sections of tho United States, where the rooda are very new, the equipments cheap, the employes Inexperienced, and all kinds of accomoclittlons very limited. It was only since the late rebellion in America that Russia has figured at all in railroad circles. The lines built by Wlmans, of Baltimore, were well built, but they were not well equipped and have been poorly maintained. The arbitrary direction of the crar, that all the lines should be perfectly straight from one large city to the other, or from the beginning to the termini, regardless of the lesser polnta on the way, will be a great drawback to the country for many year*.. The stranger's attention is directly attracted to the large number of small cities and important villages he Bees from one to live miles off the railroad lines. These marts of trade are more or less substantial, and generations will come and go before the stations are as plentiful along the railroad lines as they would at first have been made but for the interference of the czar. It is«very seldom that* house is provided for locomotives, or there is a shed for lany claps of tunU-rlal or equipment, notwithstanding the fact that the nine months of rain or snow,In each year make them more necessary than in other countries. Locomotives, rusting and falling to pieces, although but a few years old, and tools of every character are seen strewn about everywhere. Tho stations, however, are commodious and comfortable. The fastest express trains, which make about twenty miles an hour, stop at every station from flve to forty mm- ntes. The guard comes to" your carriage door when the train.' stops, opens it, and tells towfl long tho stop will be. He also points to the restaurant hard by, and tells you what can be purchased, aud, further, that there is ample time. It H probable that there is a commission arrangement, or all the railroad -restaurants are run by the company. Few passenger trains that have not some" freight curs. The trains are long, tbe rails heavy and good, the ballasting fair, bnt the equipments are so inferior that the employes refuse to make any speed. But one passenger train a day, oven on the principal'lines, and very seldom is a sleeping car or a carriage that can be utilized as a sleeper encountered. For a run between two cities distant like New York and Washington, or New York and Boston, which occupy flve and a half or six hours iu America, a day or night of twelve to fourteen hours is consumed.. There are seldom closets or drinking water, or similar accommodations. At every station, day or night, old women or children visit the carriages and Bell drinking water. There Is one comfort, however, on a Rusa'an railway train. There are no cinders. The old fashion wood burning locomotives.are used, and as they have spark. and cluder protectors and barn pine or white poplar or similar woods, there Is freedom from both cinders or smoke. The roads are too new for dust, too, when there Is a period dry enough to make dust. — Moscow Cor. Cleveland Leader. Balloons for military service In the Italian campaign in Abyssinia have been constructed at Paris, and wera experimented wltu upon the Champs de Mars recently. A great many scientists and military men w*r«' present, among them the Duke de Ijeuchtenberg and Gen.

Each balloon Inflated contains 250 to 800 cubic meters of gas, and can be folded tip to fill onry one cubic meter. Th us f olded, It is placed In a box of a wagon, which holds the windlass with the cable to which the balloon will be attached.

THREE IOWA CONSTABLES. They Piny Some Fantastic Trlckl, but Do Their Own Weeplnf. DKS MOINES, la., Feb. ft—Three constables, named Piorce, Potts and Hamilton, were arrested Saturday night upon a charge of having boon Influenced by a bribe. It is •aid that three liquor firms made up a purse of $300 as the price of the constables' release of some liquors Wcently seized, and that the bribe was accepted. The bills were marked for identification. Tbe constables, after being released oo ball, swore out writ* of re- plevin for the money, which Justice Matbea took from them when he searched them. They proceeded to servo the warrants thorn- solves, but the Justice refused to deliver up the money, u it constituted the vital evidence of their crime.
