Ho waa picking up coal near the M.,
II. aud O. (Marquette, Houghton and On
tonagon) railway when I first eaw him a
nior. forlorn little follow, with "butter
milk eyes," a yellow Ekin and hair of a
faded drab color.
1 have only to look down on the carpet
near my feet at a little pile of iron ore,
sjieciniens collected wlulo sojourning at
Ibhpeniing. Mich., at that time, to vividly
recall the little hero (for such he waa) to
my imagination, although no thought
like this 1 am cure ever occurred to his
untrained mind, and I doubt IT he would
have known the meaning of the word,
and even his parents, 6 toll d Swedes, for
which that section of the mining country
in noted, never dreamed of thinking him
one, even when the end came.
I do not remember to have heard the
ago of this weazened faced boy, but in
height and size he appeared about 10
years old. Ills face had a worn, wasted,
old look, and 14s email claw like hands
shriveled as though with age. He seemed
less than ordinary in intelligence and
spoke only in monosyllables, and so fre-
auenlly to himself that my attention was
rawn to him.
Itainbling through the mining country
in search of specimens, though in mid
winter, it was tnus I came across him.
There was something peculiar about
him; he did not seem quite right in the
"upper 6tory,M and I fell to watching
him, with a strange interest, as he picked
up, one by one, so carefully each piece
or coal that liad fallen from the coal
cars and which the railroad authorities
allowed the poor to gather, and placed
every piece with a certain mathematical
precision in his old, battered coal bucket.
"Who is that boy?" I asked of a tall,
well grown lad standing near me, ey
l?nily an employe about the yards.
"That? rather contemptuously point

the little coal gatherer:

stands at the old mine shaft with a lighted
stick every night, a waitin fer his dad
and the missus."
"The missus?" I echoed.
"Yas, that's his marm; she wurka in
the mine, long 6de of his da4,"
"A woman work in the mine?" I asked,
"Oh, yas, lots of 'em do. That's
"Why does he hold a light?"
""Cause you see as how thevole mine's
"bai.duncd, 'taint safe, and the big hole
Is right near their house; he's feer'd
they'll fall in some night com in' home."
"Lookee, you kin see it from here."
Ho pointed off towards the direction of
LaLe Angeline, where a dark spot in the
red earth was plainly visible, with bits
of boards and planks sticking right and
left around it, and near it a small,
weather beaten frame house.
So he lives there?"
" Do this parents compel him to hold
the lighted torch, or stick, everr night?"
Xaw, he jest tuk it onto biseeif. They
den't keer one way er tother."
"Has he brothers or sisters?"
JSome one called the stalwart, well
meaning lad, and thanking him for his
information as he hastened away, I ap
proached "Beekun Bob."
He did not see me, nor appear to hear
my footsteps. I came close to him and
touched him gently on the shoulder.
IIo looked up at me in a dazed 6ort of
way, his small features, or the expression
of them, rather, nearly obscured by the
p:c fusion of hematite dust spread on
thcui. His hands and clothing, as well
aj my own, were smirched with Jt.
I lo took a long, deep breath and in?

I saw at once that the boy was ill or
overworked, and the patient way tha

The day was a very cold one, and the
rhi' J's hands were cramped and blue,
Iiis toes protruded through his Ger
man socks and rubbers.
"Haven't you all you can carry?" I
asked, looking towards the heaped

cc.-.tinued to add more.
"Come, let me help you up the hill."

A Four Footed Thief,
On the Baldwin farm, about two miles
north of Fillmore, Mrs. Baldwin went
out to look after her poultry. On open
ing the chicken coop she was horrified
to find all of her fowls slaughtered and
an enormous wild cat occupying the
remises. Instead of fainting ana let
ing the intruder escape, she concluded
that he also might take a joke; where
upon 6he quickly closed the door and
called to her son's wife, who lived near
by. The latter came with her husband's
rule; then setting the door a little ajar
the two ladies in turn dispatched half a
dozen swift messengers In the direction
of hia catship, which was a final settle
ment of the whole affair. But Mrs.
Baldwin thinks that hia scalp and pelt
are rather meager compensation for Tier

iTaumJ ul Wlio Go Into Society and Ase
Made Mlerable Thereby.
The subject of going into society to-v
gether is one of endless discussion be
tween men and their wives; these favor
ing, pressing, insisting on it; those op
tKising, ridiculing, protesting againBt it.
Women often carry their point by de
claring that if their husbands will not go
out they will not, either. A just or gen
erous man is averse to keeping his wife
nt home imply because he considers
social entertainments of any and every
kind stupid and disagreeable. He knows
that she delights in them, and that for
her to relinquish them is a positive sac
tifice. There is no more reason why 6he
should stay away than why ho should go;
and, therefore, he goes, but goes reluc
tantly, with ill will, and, as it were, by
It may seem singular that she should
fxrmit him to, knowing as she does how
hateful the thing is. It seems downright
selfirih in her and women are rarely
sellisli but she believes that she cannot
afford to release him; that her frequent
ing society without him is the beginning
of their separation, of their leading dis
tinct lives, of their 6teady divergence,
Her belief may not te correct, but it Is
sincere. Hence is she not warranted in
maintaining her position to the last?
At any rate, sho maintains it, though
not without great cost, greater often thau
she realizes. Her husband resects more
and mote his dragooning into society.
He never puts on his dress suit, or orders
the carriage for that purpose, without a
feeling of inward bitterness of lus wife's
exactingness, of hid pubmission to a
wrong; and the feeling Luaiiy produces
habitual dissatisfaction and C3rnicism.
His wife is unconsciously bringing about
what she is trying to avoid settled dis
content with her and the conjugal con
dition. It were better she 6hould let him
obey his propensity than thwart it thusj
for alienation would be Blower with free
dom than with festers.
What a deal of mischief is society, fri
volous, hollow, insignificant Bociety, cap
able of doing! The dragooned husband
feels that he is a social impostor; that he
abuses hospitality by partaking of it in
perverse spirit. He is in no mood to en
tertain or le entertained. He is bored to
death, and his countenance shows it. He
yawns lehind hand or handkerchief, and
for the moment fairly despises hfci vifm.

Into a cover ever anj anon, to glance
furtively at his watch, he flunks that it

indicates that she is about to leave; but
he knows what that means, and resigns
himself to another leaden-footed hour.
Everything must have an end; finally

turning over those duties entirely to their

Endurance of the Apaches.
A white man tires after covering a
march of tw-enty niilea on a dead level

fifty miles in the same time over rough,
rocty mountain piles, and not feel lialf
so much fatigue as the soldier would in
making lu'3 score of miles. Cavalry can
not wcrk in such a couutiy, and white
