Heartless Man Trirlea with it and
a Little Oulet l'un.
There was a man at the Wabash
depot the other afternoon who took a
5 bill out of his vest pocket and
spread it out on his knee and attentive
ly examined it. Then he took it over
to the window and held it to the pane
of glass "ari(f examined it still more
critically. Then he went back to his
seat and said to the man on his right,
who had become much interested, to
gether with half a dozen others.
"Well they say there has got to be a
first time with everybody, but I
thought I had travelled far enough to
cut my eye teeth."
"Got stuck, eh?" queried the other,
as he reached for the bill. "Well, you
are not so much to blame. That bill is
pretty well gotten up."
"Yes, fairly well, but feel of it. Does
it feel like a genuine ttcMibauk to
"N o, it doesn't, though I should

daylight. 1 should have spotted it at
"Pretty well executed, isn't it?"
queried the owner.
"I don't think so. The inks used were
not iirst. class, and the printing is bad.
I couldi'tell it was queer, even if held
out at arm's length."
"Counterfeit, eh?" said the third
man. as he took the bill in his hands.
"Wall, now, I call that pooty well
done. I'd a taken that bill any whar'
fur a good one."
"If somebody didn't take 'em fer
good," said a man with a pair of steel
bowed spectacles on, as he joined the
group, "the counterfeiters couldn't
make a living. There are plenty of
yahoos still alive."
"Are you callin' me a yahoo?" de
manded the third man.
"I'm only speaking in a general way.
I'd have spotted that bill among a
thousand. Just one look at the back
of it is enough for me. Where'd you
get it?" ..
"Can't tell," solemnly replied the
"You ought to be mor?carefuL
Yes, I know."
"What are you going to do with it?"
"I think I'll try and pass it off on
soma one. Let's sea if the ticket man
will drop to it."
He advanced to the widow, bought
a ticket for a town fifty miles dowm
the road, and the ticket man pulled in
the bill made change like, chain light
ning. Twenty people were watching,
and each drew a lung breath and
opened -his - eyes. The owner of the
bill coolly pocketed the change and
ticket and calmly sat down and open
ed a newspaper and began to read. It
was some time before the crowd tum
bled to the fact that it had been guy
ed. Then one by one, they sneaked
around or went out for froh air. All
but one. It was the man who re
sented being called a yahoo. lie went
over to the joker with a grin on his
face, slapped him on the back in a
hearty way, and said:

frefertothe shooting nlTray that took
place on Lord Clifton s estate in a
place called Brandon Hill, County
Kilkenny, Aug. 7, DSSS, when the
poachers and live gamekeepers came
together, and before they separated
one member of each party was stretch
ed on the field dying.
"One of the gamekeepers who pur
sued the poachers was more venture
some than the rest and started out in
advance of his companions. After
wandering about for an hour he was
startled by a handsome bird dog
bounding toward him. A moment
later the dog lay struggling at his feet
with a handful of buckshot in his head
and breast. The discharge of the gun
attracted one of the poachers named
Pat- Burns, who emerged from the
cover, gun in hand, his face covered
with a mask.
"Burns asked: 'Did you shoot that
dog?' Welch replied: 'Yes, "and if
you don't look out I will also shoot
you.' Burns did not scare worth a
cent, but bent down on one knee and
examined the dog's wounds. When
he got up Welch hail a bead on him.
Welch was about to pull the trigger of
his gun when a report rang out in the
bushes near by and Welch, the game
keeper, was lying on the ground with
a load of shot in his head.
"The noise attracted other game
keepers, who took it for granted that
Burns was the man who had shot their
comrade, anil they at once opened lire
on him. He attempted to escape, but
the blood was running from his wounds
and 100 yards distant he fell from ex
haustion. A rapid exchange of shots
followed and the poachers were driven
back. The keepers gave up the chase
to care for their fallen comrade, Welch,
who was in awful agony. Burns, the
wounded poacher, would probably
have survived, but one of the keepers
pulled the bandage oif his wounded
leg, and he lived only an hour, having
bled to death. Welch, the keeper,
died at the end of the eighth day.
"Kilkenny jail was crowded with sus
pects a week after the shooting took
place. After the shooting the poach
ers took to the mountains. A surgeon
was called to vaccinate a child in the
neighborhood. The poachers kept
watch of the child, and when the prop
er time came took the virus, and after
scraping the flesh around their shot
wounds they inoculated themselves.
The result was the shot-wounds were
completely covered with cowpox
marks. The oachers were finally ar
rested and lodged in Kilkennny jail.
When the wounds on their arms were
discovered experts were called in to
examine them, but after a most crit
ical examination lasting all day the
men were released.
"That man I pointed out to you."
continued the speaker, "is one of the
two men who evaded justiee so clever
ly. I came to this country six months
later than he did and was astonished
to lind him engaged in a lucrative
busi uess. "

Married a Perfect Stranger.
In the diaries of the late Mr. Cope,
11. A., published by Bentley & Son, the
following story is given as told by his
sister-in-law: "She met a farmer
friend and said to him: I hear, John,
that you're lately married: who is your
wife?' 'Weel, Mi Benniiiir. I doan't
quite know.' "How mi? Where did
you meet with her? AweeI, ye see,

going I seed a canny lass walking
along t' road, and I says: "Will ye git
oop and ride?" "Ay. ""says ?he." "So

"Ha" you gotten yer plaace? "Nay,"
ays she. "I banna." "Will ye git oop
and ride?" "Aye." say she. So she
got oop and I axed her: "D'ye think
my plaace would suit ye?" "What
plaace is that?" says she. "Why, to be

Locomotive engineers are as a class
said to be superstitious, but J. M.
Pinckney, an engineer known to al
most every Brotherhood man, is an
exception to the rule. He has never
been able to believe the different sto
ries told of apparitions suddenly ap
pearing on the track, but he had an
experience last Sunday night on the
Northern Pacific east-bound overland
that made his hair htand on end.
By the courtesy of the engineer, also
a Brotherhood man, Mr. Pinckney w:u
riding on the engine. They were re
counting experiences, and the liieniau,
who was a green hand, was getting
very nervous as he listened to the
tales of wrecks and disasters, the hor
rors of which were graphically do
scribed by the veteran engineers.
The night was clear and the ray
from the headlight llashed along the
track, and, although they were inter
ested in spinning yarns, a sharp look
out was kept, for they were rapidly
nearing Eagle gorge, in the ( 'ascades,
the scene of so many disasters and tho
place which is said to be the most dan
gerous on the miles of road.
The engineer was relating a story and
was just coming to the climat when
he suddenly grasped the throttle, and
in a moment had "thrown her over,"
that is, reversed the engine. The air
brakes were applied and the train
brought to a standstill wiMiin a few
feet of the place where Engineer Cy
pher met his death two years ago. By
this time the passengers had become,
curious as to what was the matter,
and all sorts of questions were asked
the trainmen. The engineer made an
excuse that some of the machinery
was loose, and in a few moments thu
train was speeding on to her destina
tion. "What made you stop back there?"
asked Pinckney. "I heard your ex
cuse, but I have run too long on tin
road not to know that your excuse ift
not the truth."
His question was answeied by the
engineer pointing ahead and saying
'There! Look there! Don't you seo

from the stack and the headlight threw
out rays of red, green and white light.
It kept a short distance ahead of us
for several miles, and then for a mo
ment we saw a figure ou the pilot.
Then the engine rounded a curve and
we did not see it again. We ran by a
'.ittle station, and at the next, when
the operator warned us to keep welt
back from a wild engine that was
ahead, the engineer said nothing. He

"Why Rube Stayed.
As I came along to where the high
way forked, I saw a colored man aboui
fifty years of age tied to a tree beside
the road. The rope was around hia
waist, while his hands were free to
reach the knot and release himself.
"Well, what are you doing there?"
I asked, as I came to a halt.
"Dun waitin' fur Mars Chapin to cum
back," he replied.
"And who's Mars Chapin?"
"He's de Sheriff, sah."
"Did he tie vou to that tree?"
"Kase he 'rested me an' Moses White
'bout a hog case, sah. Moses he dim
wouldn't stand to be 'rested, but cut
an run. De Sheriff he tied me up healr
while he went to look fur Moses."
"Seera to me it would be a very eay
matter for you to untie yourself and
"Yes. sah. it would, but I reckon I
won't do it."
"You are an innocent man, then?"
"No. sah. I helped Moseg steal dat
hog fur sho. an' I reckon I'll git about
six months in de coal mines."
"Well, you are about the queerest
darkey I ever saw."
"Mebbe I was sah. but yo" see I has
got to tigger a leetle. Arter I has
surved out my time an' cum home,
mebbe I shall want to go up to Mar
Chapin's jail some day an' ax him tu

was to onti- myself an' run away he'd
