[Continued from first page.] over ana over tbo Lord's Prayer, ·while Blakely moaned and muttered and howled. I heard tho miner again, but I dared not look up. "'Hello, Blakely I' he said. "Where's that gold of mine?' "I heard it again aud again through that long, hideous night, death playing at cat and mouse, and I lay there, shivering one iinuuto nnrl sweating the next, while Blakely's screams and cries for help and for the priest rose shrilly nboro the noise of the rain and the thunder. At last I heard the miner's voice sound ont with a shout of vindictive trin ni ih: "'Coma, Blakely, cornel' "There was a long, long series of howls, and I-heard Blakely struggle and gurgle and choke, and then it was all still, and the hut grew warmer. Whan I dared to look up, tho storm had dribbled off, and it was ·dawn. That,' 1 said tho old elephant hunter, "was one shape death took in passing." Nobody spoke. The fire was fail- -ing, but nobody moved to revive it. Tbe moon was on tho ragged reef of topmost peaks, and the shadows were closing in about the party, while jackals yelped and whiuoddis- mally iii their unseen depths. Tho old hunter bent forward to relight his pipe with an ember, and just then there was a weak cry of pleasure from the bundle of blankets under tho wagon. Tho men started up, and Paget stooped to pass- his arm under Isdale's shoulders. Tho boy was struggling to sit up, and the firelight showed - his face, his eyes kindled with joy. He stretched out his arms, oblivious of Paget, of all of us. "Judy. Judy!" he sai 1 quiieclear- ly, -v'l've l:cs?u looking i'or yon this side ever so long. Ho\v did yju get across? Htay there. I'm coming-I'm coming. It's not deep, but it's cold--so cold!" lie dropped back, and Pnget covered ins face as the others stood about, uncovered. Two days after Pen by and his Kaffir rodo into, camp after two ·weeks' absence with medicines and tho mail ho had been seutfor. There ·was a letter with a deep black border for Isdale. "Of course," said old Hannen. "She's dead. JuJy WHS dead he- fore him. He saw her on the other side."--New York Sun. of Solids by Heat. The expansion of solids by heat is exemplified in the following cases: A glass stopper sticking fast in the neck of a bottle often may be released by surrounding the neck with a cloth taken out of warm wator or by immersing the bottle in warm water up to the neck. The binding ring is thus heated and expanded eooner than tbe stopper, and so becomes slack or loose upon it. In an iron railing, a gate, which during a cold day may be loose and . easily shut and opened, in a warm day may stick, owing to there being greater expansion of it and of the neighboring railing than of the earth ou which they are placed. The iron pillars now so much used to support the front walls, of which the ground stories servo as shops with spacious windows, in warm weather realty lift up the wall which rests upon them and in cold weather allow it again to aink or subside. Th(j pitch of a pianoforte or harp is lowered on a warm- day or in a warm room, owing to the expansion of the strings being greater than of the wooden frame work, and in cold the reverse will happen. A harp or piano which is well tuned in a morning drawing room cannot be perfectly in tune when the crowded evening party, has heated the room. -New York Ledger. · The Prince and the Gambler. In Austria and Germany the army laws against gaming were and still are very strict. When the duchy of Baden was occupied by Prussian troops ^after their suppressing the insurrection of 1849, the o flic-ore quartered at Kastadt were warned - against playing at Baden .Baden. 'One summer evening King v (then Prince) Wilhelm strolled into the gaming rooms and noticed an officer in civilian's clothes sitting at play. He had won twice on the red and was about to pick up his money ·when he caught sight of the piince watching him. Terror stricken, he eat quiet, not daring to reach ou1 for his winnings. The red turned up a third and then a fourth time. As the maximum was quickly reached the prince touched the officer on the shoulder and said gently, "Take up your money and go, lest one oi your chiefs should find you here." Of course the soldier did not require to be told twice. He got out immediately. Two days later there was a review at Rastadt, during ·which Prince Wilholm sighted the " culprit and sent for him. "Lieutenant - ,' : be said, "after you went away tLe red turned up four times more. I prevented you from win- *nmg" four times the maximum, which, you would certainly · have staked. You will draw on me for that amount. But take my advice -- donot gamble again." The memoirs of an old German general who lived to see his last victory at Sedan have stated as follows: "It was the kindness of the-lesson that cured me of gaming. For me it was better than . a year's imprisonment." Nevertheless He Got Her. "You say iny daughter loves ^you?" questioned the old man. "I'm sure of it," replied thoyoung man. "Well, well," returned the old man, looking the young man over .critically, '.'there's no accounting for tastes, is there?" | And somehow, although the young man knew that he ought to bo happy over the possession of the girl, he couldn't help scowling and speculat- · ing on that remark of the old man's. A HAKD MAN TO BEAT THE LIVE£ RAILROAD AGENT IS UP TO ALL SORTS OF TRICKS. Circus People Are Pretty Cnte Themselves, but Tbin Story Shows How One Party Was Cleverly Outwitted by tlie llustliug Kallrondcr. "There are people who think you cau't bent a circus niau, but I want to tell yon tbat tlio hardest ruau to do is n livo railroad man." Tho old sawdust manager had tried it. Ho continued: "Kiiow where Pnrcoll is in the Indin 11 Territory? Away down at the jumping off placo on thoSaiitaFe road. Tho show had been at Purcell and we wanted to get out ill the night f o r a loug run. vfo woro goiug to make a jump to Kansas City Not far from Pnrcell is another town, Oklahoma City. At that point a competing road with tho Saiita Fo runs in. Wo had 500 people, ami of course the rnilroad men were after us. It was n big haul. Some of cur people bought through tickets from Parcell, nud they riidb't worry. B u t about 200, maybe more, of tho crowd that always baggies over a 10 ccut dicker concluded to take tho Santa Fe from-Purnell to Oklahoma City, pay tho .short haul, and tbeu take the competing line at Oklahoma, the agents of which \vero activa and full of promises, "Then the Sauta Fe man fixed it so tho dickerers couldn't bny any tickets fiom Farcell to Oklahoma, for the train we wore to go .on was a special. The diclterers said that -was all right; that they would wait for the regular. In less than five minutes a bulletin was slapped ou the board of tbo station to tho effect that the regular Santa Fe was 12 hours late. That made the fellows who were dickering for a cheaper tate turn white around their gills. "In another five minutes I saw a man on a track velocipede scudding down the stiecch. Every man to his business. So I thought the railroad people knew w h a t they were doing, and they did. Tbat chap ou the velocipede was going down the track to Bag tho regular and hold it indefinitely. Smart trick, wasn't it: Wait till I toll you. There was a smarter trick than that. "When the special got ready to pull out, tho dickerers asked the agent if they could pay ou tho train from Purcell to Oklahoma, and ho said 'Cert.' fcjo they all boarded the train at Purcell, intending to get off at Oklahoma. Just before the train pulled ont the agent walks down to the engine and asks the old mail at the throttle how long he bad been on the road and about tho capacity of his iron horse, and so forth. " 'How many miles an hour can she go at her best?' asked the agent. " 'On a good track, 65 miles.' " 'Is it a good traok through Oklahoma City?' " 'Yes, pretty good.' " 'All right. You've got uo orders to ston there nor to slow up, have you?' "'Not yet.' " ' Well, when yon get to tho edge of tho town you let her go. Don't stop for niiy thing--flags or teams or cattle. Scoot through tho town at a 65 inilo ;uit, or more if yon like, and don't slow up until yon strike tbat strip of desolation about 11 miles t'other side and you smoke a box of the finest cigara in Chicago. Is it a go?' " 'If I don't get no orders 'fore I start.' "'Well, you are five minutes late now.' "In a ininote, and I calculate it was less, the circus special was under way. It went around curves like a scared ike. It shot across straight lines like a gazelle that had been singed. It whirled the dnst of tbat country into the sky. After awhile we saw a town. Then wo weufe through it like the wonton that's shot from the catapult, only wore so. Ouo of the dickerers, who was smiling to thiuk tbe conductor had not yet come round, asked a brokernun aa the train was going through the street, What town is this?' The brakeman said, 'Oklahoma City.' "The dickerer's smile faded as it came, as- the poet says, and his hair stood up, aud turning to the brakeman be says: " 'Jezecrimini! Stop her! Here's where we get off I 1 * " 'Sho doesn't even hesitate at a town like this,' said the brakeman. "Well, about 11 miles on this side, in a strip of country where a crow can't livo and where an Indian wouldn't ba caught dead, the old iron horse began to slow up. The conductor came through juEt then aud said: " 'Tickets!' "Well, say, that was a funny sight. Them that had tickets showed up and then went to sleep. But the dickerers began to kick They said they should have been lot 'off at Oklahoma City. Tbo conductor said the train didn't stop at Oklahoma, that it wasn't scheduled to stop there, and that he wasn't goiug to go back that trip. Tbe leader of the dickerers for cheap fares wanted to know what was to bo douo. "The conductor was an old timer. He had a face on him like a woman who never loved anybody. He just told them, 'Pay or get off.' Then they asked him where they could pay to. And he siiid the train wouldn't stop any more until it got to Kansas City the next morning unless it stopped to put them off. And he reached up aud caught tho bellcord. "And every one of the diokerers paid to Kansas City. And, of course, under tbo railroad law, they paid more thar they would have paid if they had bought tickets at Pnrcell. And the com pauy,was that much ahead. Aud that's what I mean when I say tbat tho hardest man to do is- a live railroad mail." --New York Snn. ·\ PLINY FISHER, ^ · ATTOKNJCr-AT-LA W, DENTON, MD.

On looking at a late map of Missouri ouo will Und the name "Log" as a post- office at the extreme western end of Newton county and about eight miles southwest of Grand falls. A few days ago Deputy United States Marshal Short bad occasion to serve papers from the Oklahoma federal court oil several persons residing in that direction, aud he was given their postoffice address as Log. As it was not a familiar name in this vicinity he wandered about tho bills until ho came to the end of a log houso extending from the brush and, concluded that it was the placo ho was searching for. He asked for tbe post- muster, and a woman replied that she was tbo official, aud upon inquiry as to her tiame tho officer also learned that; she W.IK one of the parties to be subpco- uaed. She was also asked why her office was called Log aud stated that sho didn't know exactly, but that when the offica was first established it was called "Loghousa," which the postofflce department considered too lengthy, so it dropped the "house."--Kansas City Journal.
