ICOPYmuiIT. 1804.1 Years aero I knew a young- fellow named Dee Anderson. And what a pitiable object ho was—afflicted with disease, white swelling, propped up in bed, gradually losing the bones of one leg-, Iml never losing 1 his spirits. A May morning 1 with chattering- squirrels and birds swelling thcir breasts with the impulses of praise was no brighter, no blither than he. In tho winter, close housed, he cheerfully waited for spring, and when the first warm day came he hud his bed drawn near a window and lying- there he would look far down into the orchard and revel in the beauties that nature spread out for him. We were youngsters, some of vis still riding- stick horses. How we rejoiced in our capering*. We grow older and he grew older with us, but he still lay in bed. We used to take ourguns with us when we visited him, and lying propped up at the window he would shoot at sometflinff down in the orchard. Onee he killed a hawk and it did him so much good that we thought that he would pet well, but he didn't. I moved j to a distant part of the country, and j for years I thought about that pale, crippled boy propped up at the window. I wrote V) him, but he couldn't write. I don't believe tliut any of his peo- In town and is raising 1 trouble up on the square." "That so? Well. I must go down and see about him. Come with roc. 1 ' I went along with him, and in hl§ haste to reach the scene of disturbance, he stumbled and fell. 1 helped him up and brushed the dust off his WOULD PHOOT AT SOMETUIXO DOWN THB ORCHARD. coat. As we approached we saw a crowd on the square, and a man running past told us that Blake had stabbed the sheriff. "Dee," said I, "you'd better not go. tlore's a wagon. Let me put you in it and send you out of town." fie looked at me reproachfully and 0"TJUCE MY ABM, JIM." pie could either. Many years passed, and ho gradually faded from my memory. Several weeks ago I went down to Hackenville, Tenn. J had lived near there when a boy. I was standing in the familiar street. Not a mark had been drawn to change the countenance of the old place. Not a fire had caused the putting up of a new building— moss-covered and venerable, it gave back to me my boyish fancy. I spoke to an old man. "What ever became of Dee Anderson?" I asked. "Why, don't you know? Ilah, I thought everybody knew." "Dead, I suppose." "What! well I reckon not. He's about the livest man we've got. lie's our town marshal." "Oh, he got well, ch?" "Well, mcbby not from your standpoint. Yonder he comes." And there ho did come, little, humped over, pale, walking on a stirrup and with a crutch. There was a town marshal, surely, and in a place, too. where brutish men were wont to drink and raise a row. How gladly he greeted roc, how he stood upon his stirrup, reached up and grasped my hand. I gave him a thoughtless grip and he writhed. And yet he was a town marshal. "Come over and let':* set down and talk about'old times," said lie. "Recollect the time I killed the liawk? I gad, I knew right then that there was a career mapped out for me; had been sorter low-spirited that day, but when 1 drew a bead on that old rascal and tumbled him out of the tree, 1 knew that if ever I got out'of that bed I would amount to something 1 ; didn't think, though, that I'd ever get to be marshal of this town. Do you ricollect Annie Uiileh?" "Oh, that, fat girl!'' "Yes, that's the one. I gad, I married her; yes 1 did. And do you know what's a fact? Why, she was over- said: " I am tlio marshal ol tnis place and the marshal is expected to do his duty. Come on." I didn't want to be stabbed. I didn't want to meet Jim Blake, and I hung- back. Deo hobbled on as fast as he could, and the crowd parted to let him pass. Jim Blake stood with a knife in his hand. De.e approached him. And this is the talk that followed. "Ilelloa, Jim." "Ilclloa yourself." "What arc you carvin' folks round here for, .Tim?" "Oh, to keep 'em from carvin' roe." "Well, but I'm the marshal of this town and I don't want any carvin' done here. It don't look right. Now look here, Jim. You are a big, strong man, the gamcst and strongest man in this here neighborhood, and "HE'S ABOUT THE LIVELIEST MAN WK'VE GOT." looked here for years—her strong 1 points didn't seem to make any impression on the neighborhood, that is, I didn't think they did, but after awhile my eyes were opened to tho fact that she hadn't been overlooked at all—that she had been waitin' for me all these years. Think of that, will you—as fat and promisin' a girl as she was waitin 1 for a skeleton to get up. Oh, some folks prowl, but let me tell you that this is a grand world; and I attribute my success to my patienee. Don't walk fast; I can't keep up with you." We went to the livery stable, sat down and were talking when someone came UD and said: "Dee, Jim Blake is "TCTCII THAT DOOR AXD I'LL KIIX YOU." nobody that's prot any sonsn would try to take- yon by ninin force: but 1 believe you've prot a fjood heart, •!"". and would ilu most anything- to help an unfortunate fellow !ilou<r. Now, I am the marshal of this town, and they expect mo to do my duty, and if I don't the city council will fire me and then what? Starvation for r.ic and mine. Don't you see how I'm fixed? Of course you do, because you are a sensible man, and a kind m:iii,althoug;h you do stab folks onco in awliilu. Jim, I'm poir.fi: to ask you a favor, just to help me along, you know. You just take my arm, now, and help me down to the juil as fast as you can. Don't you see, my liviii" depends on you rip-lit now? You know that I couldn't hurt you—why I could hardly cock a pistol, much lesa stab a man. Take my drill, Jim." He held out his nrm, shrunken, withered. "Take my arm, Jim." And hang me if the fellow didn't take his arm and walk off toward the jail with him., "Don't walk too fast, Jim." "Excuse me. I'm used to walldn' purty peart," Jim replied, lessening his pail. I followed and eaiiR-ht up with them just as they arrived at the jail; and I stood peeping in. "I can't pet this door unlocked," said the marshal. "Will you please unlock it, Jim?" Jim unlocked tlie door and stepped inside the cell, and then the marshal began again to fumble with the door. "I can't lock it," said he. "Let me lock it," J called. Blake wheeled about, his eyes glaring with rage. "Tetch that door," he said, "and I'll kill you." I didn't touch it. "Can't you cit it locked?" Jim asked. "Here, let me reach round and lock it for you." And he did. When I went back up town an old man said to me: "We haven't had very much trouble since Doe's been marshal, but before that we had a good deal. Four marshals have been killed here in the last six years, but Dee sorter appeals to a feller's pity, and that is harder to pit away with than a knife or a pibtol." LEPROSY IN INDIA. Boraa of tlin SourrrH to Whlrti It* Prcrm- loncp Ciiiiimt be Amirtfocrl. It has often been popularly said that fish eating- is a main cause of leprosy, and some scientific men hold the opinion that fish introduce the bacillus into the stomach, or stimulate it to activity when it already resides in the tissues. Ag-ainst this theory, popular and scientific, there are the facts that no bacilli have been discovered in fish; that castes which never touch fish furnish their due contingents of lepers, and that tho disease is not more rife in districts bordered by the sea and large rivers than anywhere else. On the other hand, leprosy is common in hill tracts, where fish is a very rare article of food. Mr. C. Conybeare, who some time ago was apprehensive that leprosy was due to tho high price of salt, will be much relieved to hear that, by statistics to which no exception can be taken on the ground of inaccuracy, the eon- sumption of salt is shown to be twice as great as the increase of the population in twenty years; that Ryot, spends on salt about one penny a month for each of his family; and that if there has been any perceptible addition to the number of lepers it has occurred in provinces where the price of salt lias fallen. Other alleged causes are mentioned to be summarily and Contemptuously dismissed. Water, opium and mosquitoes have each in turn been made responsible. Mow, the bacillus has never been found in water, though the commissioners in vain analyzed the water of a filthy tank in which crowds of lepers bathed. Premature marriages and the consumption of opium are not to blame, and if mosquitoes or Hies could communicate the disease after they had sucked the blood of any lepers, Calcutta, where these little pests abound and murder sleep, should be a perfect leper asylum. On the question of infection and contagion the report on "Leprosy in India" affirms that, "though leprosy may be considered an infective disease, caused by a specific bacillus, and also to some extent a conUig-ious disea.se," it is not actively or usually diffused in this way. Again, one might imagine that leprosy must bo hereditary._ This assertion, if not absolutely disproved, is by no means certain. .Many lepers are sterile. There is no evidence that the marriage of lepers with lepers or with non-leprous women always diffuses the disease. The children of lepers are often shorHivcd, and, as far as returns can be depended on, there is never more on an average than a couple of children to each marriage of lepers.—Saturday Review.
