FAITHFUL UNTO DEATH
The Hlnry nf n Hrvnt tllrl IVIm ,M.i
Kept Her YViinl.
"Is sho a good faithful girl?" asked tie
"Say,"nnswered tlio man, "you Just w't
till I call my wife. This business Is suit
of In her department mnre'ii lu mine, I', I
call her down, and you and she can tail
the matter over,"
Then the man stepped out Into tho had
ml shouted, "Maria! Marial"
"What's tho matter now?" nnswerul
back a woman's voice,
"Say, Maria, you Just come dow u ami
tell this lady what you know about Julia
She wants to know if Julia is faithful."
Down came Maria so quickly that tt
seemed as though she must havo slid down
tho balustrade. Rut, of course, she hadn't;
She was too old for that, sixty years old If
she was a day She Jumped Into thu mid
die of things, as thu old Romans used to
say, straight oil.
"Faithful' Well, there Isn't no faith
fuller house girl in Hrooklyn." That is
the way that she began
"And It wasn't her fault that sliu left
here, neither; I'm bound to say that," con
tinued Maria "It was all my fault, every
bit of it, and I know you'll say so when
you hear tho story Rut then perhaps you
don't care to hear the story Maybe you
are In an awful hurry to get home."
"Oh, no," answered the caller, "I should
like very much to hear tho story I'm sure
that It will interest me."
"All right," said Maria, apparently very
much pleased, "I'll tell you tho whole
business. It's a cat story. I'm a cat hater,
I am. I didn't use to be, hut of late years
we've had so many of 'em out In our back
yard that I've been forced lo huto 'em and
to make war on 'em. I reckon I'vo killed
a hundred cats Inside of a year, haven't I,
"Well, )es, should think so, Maria, all
of that," answered tho man. "You're somu
on cat killing, Maria, thuy's no use sayln
that you ain't."
"I've a method of my own," continued
Maria. "I put thu cat in a box and chloro
form him to death, and then I throw his
carcass into the asli barrel I sent out all
of a half barrel of cats one moiulug It
scared the ash man so that Im almost
"Well, here thu other day I caught a big
yellow rellow that had been howling and
yawllng about In my back yard for over a
jear, Ilo was a monster cat and he had a
voice on him like a steam cat's Tliu mill
ute I caught him I yelled for Julia to coinu
out and help nm put him into thu box Wu
had to work 1 tell you, but finally we did
It. Then I put tho big soapstone on top
of the box that I generally use to hold it
down. Rut, Lordy mercy! thustono didn't
amount to anything. I never saw a cat
thrash around so In all my life.
"'l)ok here, Jtilln,' said I, 'you'll havu
to sit on the box till I can give him a llttlu
chnloform to quiet Ml tn.'
'"All right, ma'am,' said Julia, and
down sho sat.
"I ran Into thu house for thu chloroform
and do you know I couldn't find a drop?
It was all gone. So I stepped to the win
dow and called out: 'Julia, you'll havu to
sit there awhile till lean go to the drug
gist's and get some chloroform.'
" 'All right, ma'am,' said Julia.
"'Promise me, Julia,' said 1, 'that you
won't get off the box till 1 como back.'
"'You know very well,' Julia answered,
In a sort of grieved way, 'that I won't get
off.the box till you como back. WImmi I
say I'll not do a thing, 1 generally doesn't
"I didn't stop to say any more, but put
on my bonnet and shawl ami started for
the druggist's I hadn't gone four feet
from the house when I met Miss Rartlett,
an old friend of mine, ami perhaps you
won't believe it, but it's a fact just "the
same, I forgot what 1 was out on thustreet
for, entirely forgot it. I always was an
absentminileil cieature, wasn't I, Aaron?"
"Yes, Maria, you nlwajs were a little
given that way."
"Miss Rartletttold me," resumed Maria,
"Hint she was going up town shopping,
and asked mwJo go along with her, and 1
went. Then Tasked her to take lunch with
me in a restaurant, and sho accepted the
vitation. Wo hud a real nice lunch
.Ickcn soup, lobster salad, Ico cream and
" 'Won't you have something more?' 1
asked Mrs. Rartlett.
" 'Oh, no,' she said, 'I couldn't.'
"So I called for the check, and when tlio
man gave it to me I put my hand into my
pocket for my purse. The llrst thing 1
touched was thu chloroform bottle. Then
I tho'ught of Julia at home sitting on the
cat box. I knew that sho hadn't stirred,
for she had promised that sho would stick
till I should get back, And I had actually
been gone four hours!
"Of course I hurried home. When 1
got there I wns forced to ring the door bell,
for I had left my key in the house. Rut,
though I ranga do.en times, nobody came.
All at once It occurred to me that Julia
couldn't sit on the cat box and answer the
boll call too, and then I decided to go lato
a neighbor's yard and climb the fence be
tween his yard and our back yard, ami I
did it. I tore my petticoat awfully, though,
before I got through with the operation.
"I had to turn n'corner of the house bu
foro 1 could reach the place where I had
left Julia, but that was quickly done, ami
then I stood in her presence. She gave me
a look that made me turn cold all over, but
sho said nothing until the cat had beuu
killed and deposited in the ash barrel.
Then she told me that she should leave mo
In tho morning, and sho did leave me, and
think she did just right, and if 1 ever can
say a good word for her I shall certainly
"Faithful?" continued Maria, after a
brief pause, "there's nobody any faithful
ler than Julia, Just think of holding a
ynwling, yellow cat down for live mortal
hours, without a mouthful to eat or drink,
and without oven ns much as a book to
read, If that ain't, faithfulness, I'd like to
