DETERMINED TO WIN.
The Woman Pawned Iler Cost to Get
Money for Her Lawsuit.
"My Jirst .case, said a well-known
Harlem lawyer U a Commercial Adver
tiser man, "was an unique one. An
Irish family of the name of Murphy,
living up on the rocks in one of the
fast-disappearing remnants of Shanty
town, were fraudulently evict n! from
their tumbledown cabin by a rascally
landlord. The practical head of the
household was the wife, and she de
termined to tight the matter out.
"For three weeks the Murphys, chil
dren, furniture and all, lived in the
! back yard of their former home with
nothing between them ana heaven but
a flimsy tent made of old sheets, while
Mrs. Murphy tramped around town
looking for a lawyer who would take.

"One day she charged into my office
and told me her story with the stereo
typed exactness that comes from fre
quent repetition. The case seemed to
be a worthy one, and as I wasn't over
burdened with work I agreed to take
it free of charge and reinstate the
.Murphys iu their dilapidated home-
"She wanted to get out a free sum
mons against the landlord and waive
several other small but necessary ex
penses, but I told her it would be
more politic to pay these, as the total
would not amount to fo.
"'Foive dollars,' she cried, 'divil a

husband losht his job wan month ago,
and the lasht blissed thing thini pawn

"When I offered to loan her the
money she went into such a rage that

"He the powers, she exclaimed after
pacing the floor for about ten minutes,
'I forgot wan thing! Wait, mister,

"She kept her word,' and jnst as I
was closing up shop for the day she
reappeared with her hands full of sil
ver, which she poured "upon my desk.
' "Mrs." Murphy,' I queried, "where
did you get this? I thought your

"'Yis,' she replied with a gleam of
triumph in her gray eyes, Everything

An Aged Calf.
A certain clergyman of Halifax, N.

Capt. Thomas Byrne, or "UM Tom
my,' as he was affectionately called by
all his associates, had at one time
charge of the HualpaU. a tribe ot In
dian nettled in Northwestern Arizona.
Old Tommy, perhaps from his "delud
herin tongue," had an almost mi
raculous ascendency over the chiefs and
head men of this tribu, and, though
his native eloquence was seconded
only by the scantiest allowances of
rations from the subsistence stores of
the camp, he was loved and trusted
by these childlike allies. To hear him
coaxing back a sulky warrior to good -humor
was somethiug to bu long re
membered. "Come, now," he has been heard to
say, "ahure, phat is the matter wid ye?
Have yes iver axed me for anythin'
that Oi didn't promise it to yezV"
Yet Tommy's promises were always
Suddenly one day the Hualpais, like
a flash of lightning out of a clear sky,
went on the warpath and fired on the
agency buildings before leaving for
their old stronghold in the Canon of
the Colorado. No one knew the cause
of their sudden treachery, and Tommy
Byrne was one of those who realized
how much it would cost Uncle Sam in
blood and treasure if the outbreak
were not stopped at once.
Without waiting for his spirited
little horse to be saddled he threw him
self soross its back and swept out into
the hills after the fugitives. When the
Hualpias saw the cloud of dust co
ing they blazed into it. but Tom'
was untouched, and dashed gallau
up, his horse white with foam, to tio
knot of chiefs who stood awaiting him.
At first the Indians were sullen, but
they soon melted enough to tell the
story of their grievances. The new
ageut had been robbing them in the
most baiefaced 'manner, and in their
ignorance they imagined it to he (.'apt.
Byrne's-duty to regulate all the a flairs
in Lis cam p. They did not want to
hurt him and would let him go safcly
back, but for them there was nothing
but the warpath.
"Come back with me," said Tommy
gently, "I will see that you are righted."
Back they went, following that one
unarmed man. Straight to the beef-
scales proceeded the otlicer, and in a
few minutes he had detected the man
ner in which false weight had been
secured by tampering witli the poise.
A Texas steer, which would not weigli
more than 800 pounds, stood at 1,70(,
and of course other articles followed in
the same ratio.
Tommy seized upon the agency and
took charge ; the Hualpais were per
fectly satisfied, and the agent left that
night for California. Thus was a bitter
war averted by the prompt action of a
plain, unlettered man, who had no
ideas about managing savages beyond
that of treating them with kindness
. One of the members of the New
York senate who has passed through a
good many experiences during his life
time, was in his younger days a track
walker on a New England railroad,
says the Buffalo Express. At each end
of his route was a small station. Tha
only persons to watch him were in
these neighborhoods. Pat (it is need
less to say be was an Irishman) lived
in a small house beside the track,
about half a mile from one of these
stations. He was the fortunate owner
of an old horse and wagon. This is
what led to his temptation and down
fall. There was a good wagon-road
running parallel with the track all ths
way. "Pat," said the tempter, "what's
to hinder you riding between stations?"
It wouldn't do," said Pat. But the
idea had taken hold of him and one
rainy night he tried it. He left his
horse half a mile from each end of his
beat and walked to the stations at his
usual time. Over the rest of the dis
tance he rode on the turnpike, trust
ing to luck that the track would lie all
right. The thing was so easy that it
soon became a settled practice with
him. For three or four months he
guarded the company's property in
this way. and no one was the wiser.
Then he was spotted, and a summary
discharge followed. "A man with
your genius for dodging work ought to
be a lawyer," said the superintendent.
"Faith, I think so myself." answered
the tlischargi'd track-walker, and a
lawver he became.

replied: "My dear sir, do you suppose
that Grand Dukes Alexis and Vladimir
have gone to France at . this time of
famine, when they . can be so little
spared, without a purpose? Do you
suppose that M. de Giers went there
for pleasure? Do you know, sir, that
we have our entire available force in

men, including 92,00) cavalry, posted
on our western frontiers. In St.

Moscow M.OOO. The Caucasus and
central Asia, including Siberia, have
only 200,00 men between them. Be
sides, we have no recruits on our west

at least a year with the colors. Do
you think that all these precautions
have been taken for no purpose what
ever? We have a strong fleet in the
Black sea, and HXJ.000 men readv for
embarkation the- moment a favorable
opportunity presents itself; and when.
we do declare war do not think we
shall make it with rosewater. We
have about half a million of Cossacks.
These Cossacks" we will let loose upon
the Germans. 4 hey will burn and kill
everything that comes in their way.

.Novel writing has become a trade,
and is among the vulgarest and least
respectable of modern occupations. A
mere business or a mere handicraft,
may be ennobled by its pursuer, but
can not be vulgarized as the trade pur
suit of what was once an art may be.
The public insists on being served
with imaginative literature of one sort
or another. The great mass of read
ers has no power to distinguish good
work from bad. It hi us no faculty for
the recognition of style of jmwer or
fineness in the delineation of character.
We have seen already what it demands,
and we have seen that men whose
literary equipment is least adequate iu
the night of the judicious can supply
the demand as well as the most accom
plished literary artist.
The novel, as a vehicle for the ex
pression of thought ami emotion, i.
neither dead nor doomed. The o
portunities it affords are so wide and
various that great men will always lie
found who will employ them. But
for the time at least its day of splendor
is over. Wo are on the eve of a new
epoch. The immediate publicity
allorded by the theater and the splendid
rewards gathered by the successful
playwright will combine to enlist the
most capable literary workmen in the
dramatic art. We shall have very
shortly a renaissance of the stage.
This is not to say for a moment that
all well-equipped writers of fiction will
at once begin to work for the boards.
The difference between the two kinds
of work is so wide that only the niau
why has essayed both can rightly
understand it. The result must bo

on the other, much as they are now,
and 1 remember that we tried to keep
the parties separated and the aisle be
tween them clear. Potter, a Republican
from Wisconsin, and a very large and
powerful man, got in a fuss with
Barksdale of Mississippi. They sat
across the aisle from one another, and
Barksdale said something that made
Potter very angry. He jumped for
him and grabbed him by the hair, in
tending to jerk him up from his seat
and pound his face, but lo and behold .
Barksdale's whole head seemed to rise
up in Potter's hands, and the House
found out for the first time that Barks
dale wore a wig, and his pate, as bald
as a billiard ball, shone out under the
gaslight, while the House -roared.
