He rerlted a piece of li-nd to put into corn this year that had wheat on it last. By the time .limmie got his own land cropped it was tco late to plant corn on the rented land, so he never touched it. Well, sir, theyoungster's wheat came up like Russian thistles on an alkali b ttom, and that fellow cut and threshed 10,000 bushels of wheat on that eighty acres, and never even ban-owed the land. It cost hi in "0 bushels for rent, and he had a clean rake off of 750 bushe ls of wheat .for nothing, and last Friday they were bidding 70 cents at McCook for No. 2, or better.

' How an Annate a r Detective Outwitted an Embezzler Posing Forger In Exile Who Knew or a ltlcb Deposit of Ore That Had Never Been Reported. "I never was iu Mexico but once, and then I went as an amateur defective," said the mining expert. "It hap-. mxl this way : A friend of mine in Pi.t :urg had his confidential clerk to whom he had iven an opiortun;.ty by tru: tiu; him fully skip with $10,000. lick : v. where he was, just over the L r from Fau Diego. But he was k?. he kept religiously on the vi of the line.

"I knew that my only chr.if c v r.M be to go and live there as n fr ,': from justice myself aud sd sx-;;m; Li entire confidence. I decidid to be :i forger. I tojk up my abole in tl. wretched little town and iunbor.t i hours was so sick of it that I wa.s o:i I'.c point of throwing up the whole scht .-i.-and going back. But my friend l:r.: done me many a favor in bushir-ss, nu1 in decency I cwc:l hinf some return Oi courses I did not make the slk!; i.iaii'f acquaintance. 1 was dett-nr: 1 lie should make mine. He held off 1 r v cral days, evidently thinking I vr.i.i a detective and expecting me to mrk'j, as they had always done, approaches to him. But I kept away, as if I were sus picious of him. The fellow wus dread fully homesick, and I don't wonder, iv that place. He iu;cd to go out on tin desert and look at the stars and fctripes across the border and wish ho dared gc back. He evidently began to think he was worso imprisoned than if ho had been in some penitentiary. "Finally one. day he ventured to ad dress rue. I replied very coldly to hi salutation, which only made him the more anxious to know me. He b'j-';ui tc inquire into my business and find out what I had come for. I gave him uospo cial satisfaction until one day I 6aid that I had come for a change of air. With tin same kind of air in the United States f few miles away this was, of course, ab surd, and he concluded, as I intended he should, that I was there for the same reason he was, but I plied him with nc questions. Finally, ia his impatience he burst out with: 44 WLfi. the unc of keeping up tliit pretenso longer? I Lnow and you know that we are both on the same errand down here.

' So wo confessed to each other, he tell iug mo all about his crime, which 1 knew already, and 1 telling him all about my imaginary iniquity. "That was as far as we got foi awhile, but it tlid him good. For it left him free to talk. He was very home sick, and we both acknowledged that it would bo almost plcasanter to give our selves up and serve out our terms thaii to stay there the rest of our lives. I one or twice hinted that I was ready to dc so. But he wasn't, and I knew that uc ordinary inducement would get bin; where he could be- taken. But he had no opportunity of investing his money. and his cupidity naturally forced him to see that he had made a very tioor bar gain if all he was to get out of his ras cality wa3 to sit and spend it nl nvly in that little hole cf a Mexican town. "I had already interested hint with my stories of fortunes that had lieen made iu lucky mine investments, and told him I knew of one rich deposit which I had never reported to any cue, intending to invest tne amount et my forgery iu its development if I could get some inoro to put with it. 1 told him it was in an out of the way local lty in southern Arizona, and tnat we could get there without detection if we would go on fx)t or burro back and avoid the railroads. Finally he con cluded that he was willing to take the risk if I would and go and look at the property. The rest was easy. I wrote at once for an officer to be ready to head us off while crossing the Colorado river. We had traveled some distance without being challenged or exciting suspicion. I threw off my pretended apprehension. declared that we were safe from all in terference aud that we might as well take it easy. This proved contagious, and I saw that I would have no difficul ty in getting him to tho point I had designated to the officers. "We were riding slowly along in the hot sun of the desert when suddenly from behind a butte two men on horses shot out and rode swiftly toward us and were upon us almost before we had time to realize it. Although 1 had expected them, I confess I was taken by surprise it was done so quickly and success fully. Of course they handcuffed me as well as him. But before we had reached the railroad station they had released me, and he understood how he had been fooled. I expected he would burst out in cun.es and reproaches, csjiecially when thev confiscated what Lo had left of his stealings. But he didn't In fact, it was so great rt nlief that Le iiir.de no defense at the trial and took his sen tenco with great indifference. I would hardly have been surprised if he had thanked me for the favor ho was so thoroughly 6ick - of exile. " Chicago Times-Herald. . ABOUT WALL PAPER 5 PAINT. u a ..WE HAVE JUST RECEIVED..
