Ho begged his food nnd used what llttlo cash

And no In raits, nnd so In Jngs ho journeyed to

Until 0110 day bo laid himself bcsldo a stream

Ills I lie u of I'oetry.
A celebrated journalist onco concluded
nn Important lending nrtlelo with n care
fully composed nnd eloquent peroration.
To his dismay, however, n printer's idio
syncrasy caused his peroration to appear
to the world cut tip In separate lines, nnd
posing ns 11 poetical quotation.
Tho Irate Journalist, conscious that some
of his best work hud been spoiled, rushed
wildly into tho editor's sanctum, nnd
pointing to tho printed muddle, excitedly
''Look here lit this. See what that
fiendish printer hnsdoue. Ho has ritlritl
utterly ruined my workl"
The editor, with that screnu composure
and affability which Ik ho characteristic of
his nice, listened quietly to n recital of the
printer's crimes uud then gravely uroo
"I will see Justice-done, my good fellow,"
he murmured: and then, armed with 4
copy of tho paper, strode into the corupotr
"Jenkins, did you set up this?"
A composltorof tho good old Hchool came
"Yes, sir, that is some of my work."
"And very fine work It Is, too," ex
claimed rho editor. "Do you know that
this is somoof Mr. S 'h finest prose, nnd
you hnve been thick headed enough to set
it up for poetry f"
"Prose, is it, sir," muttered the compos
itor. "Well, 1 looked nt that passive, nnd
I read It for'nrds and I read it Imck'urdr,
nnd I read it likewise upside down, but I
couldn't mnko head nor tail nor common
sense out of It, so I thought it iiuiHt Iil
poetry and printed it hhsiicIiI" Iximlon
Ho I'robubly Knew No lletter.
Ho was doing his best to Ik- agreeable,
but there was apparently something that
displeased her. She walked along ill
silence, paying little attention to nil the
clover nnd pleasant things he was saying
"Mr. Wills," she said nt last, us pleasant
ly as she could, "tiro you nfruid that 1 will

"Why-why, no. Miss Mubol. What u
"You nro not afraid that I will suddenly
start and runr"
"Certainly not! I kuow of no reason
why you should."
"Perhaps, then. Mr. Wills." she sug
gested, growing n trifle more haughty,
"you have been ill nnd are weak."
"No, Indeed, Miss Mnliel I wns never
in better health."
"You are really not afraid of fulling?"
"Not nt all."
"And you ueed no support i"
"None, I don't understand"
"Then I see no occasion for your holding
onto my arm."
"Why, It was rather to assist you than
"If you will kindly give me yntiruriii,
Mr. Wills, I can gain nil the support that
Is necessary with less Inconvenience and
more grace. Furthermore, I will not have
a black and blue murk 011 my iirm every
time you think I need a little extra assist
ance. And the public, Mr Wills, will lie
more inclined to think that you are strong
enough to walk without support."

Truly, it was nn enchanting
novel withal, that I walked about with curious delight, forgetful
of nil the means which enabled mc to Intrude upon tic fishes''
domain, until I wns brought to my senses by n sharp jerk on the
lifeline, this being nn Interrogation from Jack ns to whether I
wns all right. I answered In n similar way and, as I did so, n
familiar object caught. my eye In the shape of the "llurllngton
Route" trade mnr. It was exquisitely painted on n little ledge
of rock and I could plainly read the limning announcement of
their new express trains nnd the remarkable time being made
between Denver, Lincoln, Omnhn and Chicago. "Ye godsl" I
cried, "What enterprise! An advertisement even here! Is there
noplace on earth or under the waters where this wondrous Rail
road Is unknown?"
Our new vestlbuled specials, Nos. 3 nnd 6, nre among the fast
est nnd most luxuriously appointed passenger trains in the world,
nnd nre deserving of hearty support nnd generous patronage.
The distance between Denver ami Lincoln is now covered In the
unparalleled time of twelve hours and ten minutes, w Idle the run
to Chicago Is made in fifteen hours and fifty-flvc minutes.
These Trains, as well ns our celebrated "Flyers'," nre equipped
with dining, sleeping, chair and smoking cars, of exquisite design
nnd workmanship. Drains as well as money wns liberally used
in their construction.
