That plenty but reproaches me
Which leaves my brother bare.
Not wholly glad my heart can be
While his is bowed with care.
If I go free, and sound and stout
While his poor fetters clank,
Unsated still, I'll still cry out.
And plead with Whom I thank.
Almighty: Thou who Father b ;
Of him, of me, of all.
Draw us togther, him and me,
That whichsoever fall.
The other's hand may fail him not,
The other's strength decline
No task of succor that his lot
May claim from son of Thine.
I would be fed. I would be clad.
I would be housed and dry.
But if so be my heart is sad,
What benefit have I?
Best he whose shoulders best endure
The load that brings relief,
And best shall be his joy secure
Who shares that joy with grief.

One Blow Too Many.
BY CHARLES EUGENE BANKS.
tCopyrlght, 1901, by Dally Story Pub. Co.)
Teddy McFarland left the train at
the little station of Limerick, go named
from the fact that the country for
milts around had been settled by peo
ple from that district in Ireland. After
two years in the Klondike the little
Tillage seemed quiet as a graveyard.
It was Sunday morning and the vil
lage, solemn in its stillness, was In
strong contrast to Dawson city, where
Sundays were unknown, but all days
ere alike noisy with wild sports or
Tbe young man turned Into a cro?s
street and walked slowly along under
tbe shade of the newly leaved apple
trees. A hlo-k farther on the bell in
the little Catholic church rang out the
morning service hour,
McFarland stopped by the gate to
watch the arrival of the country peo
ple, every one of whom he knew tut
who failed to recognize In this tanned
and bearded mm the smooth-faced
youngster who had left them two
years, before to seek his fortune in the
cold lands of Alaska. There was a
touch of mystery about, the situation
thai quickened his Irish blood. A word
from him and the scene would In
stantly change and ho would becnra5
the center of an excited, questioning
group; for few ever traveled far from
this settlement and a man who had
seen the frozen mountains of the far
Northwest would be more than a nov
elty in the eyes of thU simple people.
But all McFarland'g coolness van
ished and his face flushed crimson as
tall, fair girl sprang lightly out of an
old carry-all and came toward him.
Then be leaned back against the gate
post and waited, his eyes dancing with
It anticipation of a speedy rccogni-
"Mollte Westcott! Impossible!"
tlon. But the girl passed him with
out the least show of recognition and
hurriedly entered the church. Mc
Farland saw that she was pale, had
sad, hopeless look that went straight
to hlj heart. Its wondered If she was
grieving because of bis absence and
thought If this was so how soon tie
should bring the color bock to her
cheeks and tbe light of happiness to
her eyes. While' he was speculating
on this coming happiness two old men
drove up In a carriage, and one, hand
ing the reins to tbe other with the
Sir of proprietorship, climbed down
from bis seat and came up the path
toward the sate. It was old Jamas
Henneesr. McFarland knew blm well
as a character generally disliked for
fcla hard, grinding practices, so differ
ent from tbe free, open-banded na
tures or the people 01 ine settlement.
But the novelty of being a stranger In
bis aatlva Tillage was wearing away
us McFarland aall4 out pleasantly
"On Moratag, Mr. Hen ma jr. Hat

"What? fio It is; so it is. Back
from your wild goose chaBe after gold
and poorer than when you left, I'll
warrant," replied the old man gruffly.
"I've seen something of the world,
at least," laughingly responded Mc
Farland, "and that Is better than hav
ing nothing and seeing nothing which
would have been the caso had I stayed
"Well, you're back In good time,"
chuckled the old man. "There's going
to be a pretty wedding hero this morn
ing and II you're civil you may get the
chance to salute the bride."
"Good luck to be sure. And who
may be the happy man?"
The old man straightened himself.
"I am, sir. The ceremony will be per
formed at the close of the mornmg
"It's glad I am for you, Mr. Hen
nesry, but wbo is the bride?"
"You saw her go in a moment ago
"Mollle Wescott! Impossible."
"Why not?" snorted Hennessy. "Is
there anything strange about a fine
young woman fancying a man with a
thousand acres of land and a good
bank account? Especially," he added
with a leer, "when her father Is bank
rupt." T)o you mean that Wescott has lost
"Yes, or would have lost it If a good
friend had not stood by him."
"You old devil," cried McFarland,
advancing upon the other with clenched
bands. "So you've got Wescott in a
tight place and are forcing him to give
you his pretty daughter to save him
from ruin." t
"Travel doesn't seem to have im
proved your manners, young man. 1
should advise you to be mote civil or
you may not get a chance to taste the
The old man went chuckling up the
church steps leaving his young rival
sweating with impotent rage. Could
it be that this fair young girl who had
been tho hope of his life ever since
they were playchildren together was
willingly sacrificing herself to this
miser's gold? No; he would not be
lieve It. It must be for ber father's
sake. If only he was sure of this ho
would go into tbe church and forblJ
it He had not come back empty
handed and could easily help Mr. Wes
cott out of his difficulties. But sup
posing she had thrown him over for
Hennessy. He paced back and forth
before the church door listening to the
priest droning out tho service, unable
to settle on any definite plan of action.
"Wud ye like to know something
that wud stop tbe weddln', sor?" whis
pered a hoarse voice In his ear. Turn
ing, he saw the old man Hennessy had
left In the wagon pulling at his sleeve.
"I've been wid him since before he
left New York," continued the shriv
eled little fellow. "He's been a hard
master to me all along, but this morn
ln' he beat me like a dog because I
told hlra he ought not to ruin th!s
young girl's life. If you would save
her, sor, go In and ask him what has
become of the wife and children he
left bark there in the city. He can't
deny it, sor."
"Glorious old fellow! Gad, I could
"All I ask or you, sor, Is that you
don't let him know It wux me that told

"Never fear. I'll take care of you all

look dumb. I'll attend to tbe rest of
McFarland threw his hat Into the air
for very Joy of hla feelings and then,
smoothing tbe smiles out of his face,
walked solemnly Into the church. The
couple wart already at the altar and
tbe priest waa preparing to say the
final worda that aaould make than
aaa wilt w avast the rouag mlnat
strode dowi tkt aiale, and touching
Henneaay on tbe shoulder said quiet
ly: "Before this matter goes any farther
I muat have a word with you."
Tbe priest waa so startled that be
dropped hia book. People in tbe pews
started to their feet in wild excite
ment; Hennessy turned with a e&&rl
upon tbe yot.ng man, choking with
rage at tbe unseemly interruption. Tbe
bride threw one swift glance into the
eyes of tbe stranger, and a flush swept
over ber face and she clutched the al
tar rail to' steady herself. McFarland
was the only cool one in tbe bouse.
"I'm sorry to Interrupt the proceed
ings, Mr. Hennessy," be continued,
"but unless you wish the people here to
hear what I have to say you'd better"
"Away with you, fool!" roared thf
old man. "Take the madman away. Hi

He told me that Hennessy had a wife

to starve. I can prove what I say. You
know it is true. Look at the old ras
cal. He shows his guilt in his looks

"They are all dead, long ago,"
stammered the old man groping blind
ly around for his cane.
"Oh, no they're not Hennessy.
There's time enough yet for you to
make amends. Let me help you to
your carriage. You seem rather feeble."

assistance and staggered out of the

bent to kiss the gold of Mollle's hair.
James Hogg, the Ettrick shepherd,
has many anecdotes of the breed of
dogs known as the collies. He had
one named "Sirrah," of which he re
lates the following: "I'pon one occa
sion, about seven hundred lambs.
which were under his care at weaning
time, broke up at midnight and scam
pered oft, in three divisions, acroas
the neighboring hills, in spite of all
that he and an assistant could do to
keep them together. The night was
so dark that he could not see Sirrah;
but the faithful animal heard his mas
ter lament their absence in words
which, of all others, were sure to set
him most on the alert, and wlthojt
more ado, he silently set oil in quest
of the recreant flock. Meanwhllo the
shepherd and his companion did not
fail to do all In their power to recover
their lost charge; they spent the whole
night in scouring the hills for miles
around, but of neither the lambs nor
Sirrah could they obtain the slightest
trace. It was the most extraordinary
circumstance that had ever occurred
In the annals of pastoral life. They
had nothing for It, day having dawned,
but to return to their master, and in
form him that they had lost his whole
flock of lambs, and knew not what was
to become of one of them. On their
way home however, they discovered a
lot of lambs at the bottom of a deep
ravine called the Flesh Cleuch, and the
Indefatigable Sirrah standing in front
of them looking round for some relief,
but still true to hU charge. The sun
waa then up, and when they first came
In view they concluded that it waa one
of the divisions which Sirrah had been
unable to manage until he came to
that commanding situation. But what
was their astonishment when they dis
covered that not one lamb of tbe whole
flock waa wanting. How he had got
all tho divisions collected in the dark
Is beyond comprehension. The charge
was left entirely to himself from mid
night until tbe rising sun; and if all
the shepherds In the forest had been
there to bave assisted him they could
not have effected it with greater pro
priety. The Humane Leaflet.
