with his billy over the right eye a couple
of times and downed him, but Erown
swore he would not be taken alive and
seized Fitzpatrick bv the throat and
kicked him in the breast savagely. The
call of the oflicer for help did not receive
the least response from the cowardly
crowd, and while he was ovcreomin"
Erown, Murphy slipped up and wrench

A Donlcey Khlo to Abou Seer.
The donkey ride to Alou Seer is tho
hardest on the tour. It in through tlerp
uiinl. and often the tiny donkeys sink
until your fe; t so drag as to impede your
progress. You cannot walk. In mercy
to jour donkey you wish you could.
Your study of the poor animal convinces
you thttt he has great patience. Tho
driver is a model of forlearance; there is
always, however, a 2erfect understanding
between donkey and driver. Although
the poor beast in continually goaded and
his tail twisted to make him go, or else is
pushed bodily to right and left, and even
seized by tho head and lifted to suit the
inclination of the master ho bears it
bin rid ly and seems to feel that he must
deserve it or lie never would be so tort
ured. He is a fatalist, and believes
that, after all. be is always a "good don
key" to his driver. For does he not hear
his driver tell the howadji so, a hundred
times each daj-?
There are nearly a thousand synonyms
in Arabic for donkey, all tender and en
dearing. And then do I not know that
when the noon muezzin sounds the don
key and driver retire to some quiet shade
and have their loving make ups? I have
watched the human member of the firm
as he came with the meal of chopped
straw for his pet. I never saw such
mutual coddling and love signaling and
tender understanding in all my experi
ence. It i3 melting. The boy's face beams
with Pmiles while he calls his donkey pet
names in the softest tones; and the
homely animal go shakes his head, snaps
his eyes, and oscillates his neck as to
brighten his humble physiognomy into a
new expression. Edward L. Wilson in

The "Ofllce IJoy" Question.
Our reformers would do well to tako
cognizance of the "office boy" question.
is no small one, either. It aiiects
every branch of business. It is a diffi
cult thing nowadays to get hold of a good
olllce boy. Out of fifty applicants
not more than three or four will bo
worth considering. The boys of today
seem to lack ambition and make little
effort to advance themselves. Most boys,
even at the age of 14 or 15, begin life
sadly provided in the way of education,
beinc: poor writers and spellers and
knowing nothing of grammar. It is tho
lack of earnestness that is deplorable.
They can keep jiosted on baseball, horso
races and prize Sght3, but that's about
all thev care for.
Occasionally one meets with a bright
boy, cpiick at figures and intelligent, but
these boys develop tendencies which
make it unsafe to trust them with money,
so great are the temptations to a boy who
had not been grounded right when ha
was at his mother's knee. This is es
pecially so of city boy3 who aro always
the answerers of want advertisements.
Country toys cannot afford to live in the
city on $3 or $4 a week. Country boys
are much more useful than city reared
lads, because they have plenty of ambi
tion. If they haven't at first, a few
months in the city will arouse it. Alono
in a big city a country boy will naturally
be spurred on by his very lonesomenes3.
I do not think the fault is in the small
ness of the wages paid, as a business man
will pay extra for a good, No. 1 boy. I
am afraid the cause lies deeper. Busi
