A SHORT BUT TRUE STORY OF A
HORSE AND HIS FRIEND, THE CAT.
An Intcrcstlnir Legend A limit it Queer
Tlircc Cornered Island mill II llnr
hikiiIoii Inhabitants it Men, Women
nml Children Without None.
In Mr. John Dlniltry's entertaining liook,
"TlircoOood (limits," OCCIlf tlio following
legem! of u (juror throo cornered Island,
known in the "long ngo"nstho "Island of tlio
Noseless l'oojilo." It was. no culled from tlio
fact Unit tlio nososof nil men, women nml
children were lint, mid shaped like tlio
ncu of cluln. The Island was small, lint
full of jKHiplo. Ah nges rolled hy, It wus
found to Imi of no use to try unit keep ui
family mimes, for nt there- wns no d lifer

nnd jhioi, hud tlio saino kind of chili noso

noliody could clnlui iiny jmrtlcuhir nntno.
In their troulilothoy nt Inst thought, out u
jilnn hy which they could toll ouo from an
other. A KAMII.Y OV CM'II NOHKS.
This wns their jilan, to call each other hy
the name of whatever ouo most, wanted. In
this nay tho jiooplo of tho island Ix-onmo
ns nun family. So loving did thoy grow
under this new rulo that each 0110 scorned to
linvn n certain right to his neighbor, and
noer i.i(ikn to him without putting "my"
Ufin his iinino. If 11 littlogirl, for itiitiiiico,
wantoct butter for her bread 1I10 would call
her mother "My Ilutter," and if her mother
wanted her thread, tho cull, "My Thread"
would hrlng her liltlo girl running to Unit .it
for her. A young man would bow to u Indy
nnd my "A looly day, my Kveiilng Walk"
nnd slio would sinllo nml reply, "Yes, my
fnirNou'say." An old man would call to
his son, "Hurry, my Stair," and tho boy
would niisivcr, "At omv, coming my l'arso."
A jirofessor would call his class towrlto by
ringing tho Ih11 for "My good lessons," mid
each scholar would salute him with "Good
morning, my Success."
Kvery thing, oven in tho smallest matters,
worked smtiothly. Thorn could lsi no bad
marriages, Imimuso each 0110 called for In tho
other what ho or sho most needed nnd did
not have. Young maidens sail); and danced
half tlio year round, since they were nlwnys
cnlllng each other "My Oav Holiday"' and
"My Kieh Feast." Tho childien too wero
happy anil laughed anil played from eyo
ojieuing to oyo shutting tlmo. In course of
tlmo this happy family numbered :tOO,(XX)
souls, nt least tho mayor of club noses s.o
A lion's Itnixcry.
Two lad, one of 1(1 years old nnd tho other
uliout 11, went into a pond to get out a
couple of ducks they had "winged." As ono
of the boys arrived within reach of tlio
birds, tho younger of them being up to his
chin in tho water, a jilercing cry was hoard
from tho elder boy, nnd tho younger on
looking saw a largo snako Hivliumiug toward
him, evidently with tho intention of di-put-ing
his right to tho duck. Hut tlio snako
waa not tnhmo It all his own wuy, for a
liver color spaniel, tho favorite of tho fam
ily, sprang into tlio water, seized tho reptile
and rwiiiii to tho bank with It in his mouth,
and although tho suako bit tho faithful ani
mal in several places, ho would not drop hi,
burden until tlio Ixiys wero out of reach, nnd
when ho saw they wero Kafo ho went uji to
tho lnils nnd oxhihito 1 by liU playfulness tho
joy ho felt at having saved them.
Tho dog was treated for snako bito by
ovory available means, but ho died in a
couplo of days to tho regret of all tho family.
