- There waa considerable Ill-feeling tie
twee the two eanipe. It all began with
Blny Chetwynde declaring that be
could paddle from Silver Glen dam to
the railroad bridge In twenty minute.
Nobody had ever thought of doing It Id
Jess than twenty five before, and Hal
Bargees who beard Billy's boasting
from the other tent, stuck his head
through the flap and said:
"What yon crowing about, Billy? Do

Hal took ft np the next morning as
soon as Billy appeared. "When you

waa over we were all squabbling over
the individual paddling of both crowds.
Nothing would satisfy ns but a chance
tournament In which every member of
the Chet wynde crowd was pitted
gainst some member of the Burgess
fraternity. Now take my advice: when
ever two parties of school friends camp
ut near each other see that there is no
racing or trials of dexterity. At Ieaat
ft yon want a quiet time.
There isn't a more peaceful spot In
all the State than the stretch of quiet
water known aa Still River. But from
the day Billy and Hal got to wrangling
ver who could make the best time be
tween the dam and the railroad bridge,
the two tents full of fellows were In a
continual squaooie. Before we were
all having a jolly good time and every
fellow behaved hlmselif. But after the
'"mild-eyed angel of peace folded Its
wlnga and fled" well, aa my young
brother Teddy remarked with great
freedom of speech, "the Kilkenny cats

The race came off. and naturally the
greatest excitement was over the trial
between Billy and Hal. Both had the
best canoes of the lot real Indian
btrchbarks made by Johnny Nose (or
Nosey Jobnny, as we called him), a
half-breed Indian who waa quite a
character about Silver Glen. All we
could think or talk about were the
races, and Hulling, ball play and swlm

Well, Billy was Inclined to "blow" on

so perhaps It served him right to be
beaten. But I hatad to ace Hal do It

lighting humor by night
Most of us forgot the recent race and
a good many of our differences In the
strike excitement But Billy Chet
wynde was as gloomy as an owl and
spent most of the day on the river. He
couldn't get oyer bis defeat at Hal's
bands Heretofore Hal and him bad
been as "thick as thieves" the chum
mlest chums in the school and I don't
know but the fact that they were no
longer friends really troubled Billy

In the canoe
Hal didn't show up at supper time,
and Fred, who came down from the
Glen earty In the afternoon, said be waa
worried. The temper of some of the
! strikers was bad and Fred said he fear
ed Hal had got Into trouble. Billy,
when be beard this, got out his canoe
agin and paddled up stream. What
happened after that we only know
from Billy's own story, and for a won
der, as It Is hard work to get Billy to
talk about It even now.
He paddled up to the dam to see If
he could bear or see anything of Hal.
It was getting dusky on the river, and
as he went up near the west bank he
was entirely In the shadow. Some of
the men maybe half a dosen of them
were talking together under the dam
on the west aide, having evidently met
mere ny appointment Kiuy's canoe
n't noticed at all and be beard
.. uat they said. In about two minutes
be bad got the gist of the matter, and
If ever there was a frightened boy In a
canoe, that boy was Billy Chet wynde.
and he was In that canoe on the Still
River at that Identical moment
He learned that these men were the
ringleaders of the strike; that they
were determined the strike should go
on, aad that Mr. Burgess should not
talk with the men until the trouble had
gone far enough to make so amicable
settlement Impossible. And to gain
their end they had secured the assist
ance of two rascally tramps who had
agreed to "draw" the spikes out of a
rail at tbe bridge below, so that tbe
evening tra'n, with Mr. Burgess
aboard, would be ditched!
Rome time after Billy left camp that
evening we saw something shoot by

Home Long Beards.
Perhaps ttie best-known beard tn the
United States Is that of ex-tienator
rrfiVr, of Kansas, which was said to
measure three feet long, but Utere are
many wtitah exceed that in size. The
muMeums frequently contain men five
feet and over whose beards sweep the
floor when they stand up, but perhaps
the longest of all Is that of Legrand
Larow, of Lamer, Mo., wnfeb li said to
exceed any otber In the world. It Is
seven feet in length, and has measured
seven and one-half feet Mx. Larow
waa born In Tompkins Oouoty, New
York, In 18&2, and bis relatives are
noted for beavy beards, but not extra
ordinary lenjrth. He Is six feet In height
and wHgtas 175 pounds. When standing
with hie beard down H extends two
feet upon the floor. He has not shaved
for over twenty years. In the year 1877
Mr. Larow went West, and waa s
farmer and stock raleer for many
years. He wears his beard braided and
wound around bis body, or else wrap

Primitive Lighting.
The first and most natural way of
lighting the houses of the colonists was
found tn the fat pitch-pine, which waa
plentiful everywhere; but as soon as
domestic animals increased candles
were made, and the manufacture of tbe
winter supply became the special au
tumnal duty of the thrifty housewife.
Great kettles were hung over the kitch
en Are and filled with hot water and
melted tallow. At tbe cooler end of
the kitchen two long poles were placed
from chair back to chair back. Across
these poles, like the rounds of a ladder.
were placed shorter sticks, called can
die-rods. To each candle-rod were tied
about a dozen straight candle wicks.
Tbe wicks were dipped again and

tallow, the succession of dippings glv

ad Very Hard to Treat
"Seems to me I told you once." said
the old circus man to tbe Boston Her
ald reporter, "about the giraffe having
a sore throat? It is a serious matter
for any giraffe to have a sore throat;
bad for the giraffe and bad for tbe own
er. Wben you come to take an eighteen
foot giraffe like ours a sore throat
meant large expense and a large
amount of trouble; aud tbe big fellow
hadn't more'n got over this before
something else happened to blm that
gave us even more trouble. He caught
cold and tbe cold settled In his throat
I suppose he was still sensitive there
sud it gave biro a stiff twx lt. that he
couldn't bend bis neck at alL
"You can't have any Idea of what a
stiff neck means until you see a giraffe
afflicted in that way; we'd bad all sorts
of trouble with animals in one way or
another, but for real bother this beat
'em all. We discovered It one day on
tbe road. Tbe giraffe always ducked
bis bead under tbe branches that hung
down, sort of like a swan or goose does,
but this day. carrying bis bead right up
straight In the air, he brought up
against a branch that was at kstst flf
teen feet above the ground. That was
such an amazing thing that we knew
something must be the matter, and
when tbe giraffe's keeper came up and
spoke to blm, and all be did waa to
bend his nose and look down, wby, we
saw he couldn't bend his neck, and
then we knew what was the matter.
"Well, of course, tbe first thing we
did waa to set a man to march along,
side of him with a tent pole with a
crotch in tbe end of it to lift the branch
es for him. Most of tbe time almost
all tbe time. In fact we could steer
him clear of overhanging branches, and
of course lota of tbe way there waa long
stretches' where there wasn't any trees
at all, and then we'd come to places
where tbe man would have to lift a
branch to let the big giraffe go under;
and a great pity It waa, too, to see him
compelled to go about in that manner.
"He went that way for about ten
days. Ordinarily we used to put bis
feed for blm on top of an animal cage,
so that he wouldn't have to bend down
more than eight or ten feet but he
couldn't do that now. So we set a ring
In the center pole eighteen feet from
the ground and we used to reeve a rope
through that and make one end fast to
the bucket with his food or drink in it
and heist It up and let him eat there.
On the road we used to throw tbe rope
over the crotch of a tree at a suitable
height For bis entry Into the great
tent at show time we had to cut a great
silt la the canvas; but we didn't regret
that, becauae It was a mighty Impres
sive thing to see blm march In that
way. It made blm look tbirty-eix feet
tall Instead of eighteen.
"Twice a day a man used to go up
en a ladder and put a strap around bis
head and we'd book on a fall with a
bosun's chair, and a man would ride
down his neck and rub In liniment He
used to like that very much, and It
helped him greatly, too, and one morn
ing, wben tbe men went out to give
blm the usual rub, they were delighted
to see tbe old chap with his bead
down pretty near to the roof of tbe
grixsly bear cage, which stood next to
blm, which showed that his neck was
coming around all right and also tndi
cated that he'd take his breakfast this
morning In the old way. If you please."
Gallant Conduct of Piper.
There have been several Instances of
bravery similar to that of tbe gallant
Gordon piper at Dargal, who continued
to play after both his legs had been
shot off. One of these, which occurred
during the Peninsular wars, waa al
most Identical with that of the capture
of the Dergai ridge. It waa at TVmlera,

of the cut pieces are perfect circles;
others are oblong figures of varying
