"Try It and tako tho consequence!" waa
tho spirited response.
Tho guide leaped forward with drawn
sword, and tho nicrchnnt.nstahrnrtyoung
man, raised bis stAII ana Uootl on tbo de

Jew's staff was cut in two, but before his
assailant could strike him witb tho sword
ho leaped forward, caught him in his arms,
and the two fell over the cliff nud dashed
In 11 bleeding muss on tho rocks below.
Tho second Russian sent tho Jew's bur
dened mule after his master, and then stood
face to face with another resolute man
armed only with a stout stick.
Tho Russian lost a precious second of
timo in trying to draw his pistol, tor the
staff whistled above his head, and uncon
scious and never to be conscious again, he
tumbled into the depths. Then tho Jew
sent the Russian's horso after him ami
camo face to face with a second man.
Seeing the fnto of his companion, the
third Russian leaped forward, llko an en
raged animal, and caught his opponent in
his. arms. Tho struggle was brief and
fierce. Tho issue would have been doubt
ful had not tho Cossack's horso plunged
forward in its fright and dashed against
the men, hurling them and itself into tin
awful abyss. .
Both parties were now wroucht un to a
frenzy that bliuded them to all considera
tions of life.
The Russians wcro like bloodthirsty sav
ages who find their slaves rising itgalust
them in revolt.
Tho Jews lost their habitual prudence
and were stung to a desperate resistance
by tho memory of mauy generations of
outrage und rapine.
In tho dense settlements tho Russians
might Iki masters; hero they were man to
man, with all tho advantage of arms on
the side of tho transgressors.
Tho fourth Jew picked up a sword that

Tho Jew had lost n brother and his gray

With such n war cry as never burst from
Jewish lips since the' Maccabees led Israel
to victory, the young man swept every liv
ing thing from his path till he came face

Tho Russian II red his pistol straight Into
the young man's face, making a serious but

When Handel, tho celebrated German
musician, went to Ireland to gtvo concerts,
ho was much perplexed by the Illness of
tho man he had brought with him to sing
bass. On explaining his trouble ho was
told that there was a mnn In Dublin, a
printer named Gorman, who had n good
voice, nn excellent knowledge of music
and who was a member of St. Patrick's
Handel, who was a fussy little man, was
much delighted at being nblo to secure
