Tto Man By ttu Roidside. BT WILL 8. OIDLET. (Copyright, 1901, by Dally Btory Pub. Co.) A man Buffering, from half a dozen gunshot wounds lay dying by a Ken tucky roadside a man frizzled and gaunt, and upon whose lean face was the bronze of fifty summers and many a Jagged aeam and scar. A rabbit poked Its nose Inquiringly through the bushes as he lay there, and then at a eudden movement from the dying man turned and scuttled ewlftly away. Then a big blue-bottle fly came buz zing around the helpless man, welter ing in hia own life-blood beside the rude mountain trail, and after five minutes of blundering and bumping against his battered features finally settled down on the raw edge of a wound, just below the matted hair on hi forehead and began patiently drlll - lag Into the sensitive flesh. 1 The eaqulsite pal a eemed to revive the mortally : wounded sufferer and : awaken his instinct of self-preservation. His right, band stirred by his side, and then . crept . slowly slowly but surelyup toward J his blood stained forehead. Inch by Inch , It advanced that gnarled, claw-like hand until It waa on a level with the demon fly probing Into hla wound; and then with a sud den movement he brought It down, crushing the Ufa out of his tormentor. "Ha, ha! I got yeh, did I?" be chuckled hoarsely. "Wush I could reach out an' mash ole Cy Grandy under my hand aame es I did thet fly! I e'd die happy then. Yaas, I'd be willln' to go to hell if 1 c'd send Cy thar fust the treacherous, cowardly skunk!" The wounded man rolled over and mad an effort to rise to a sitting posi tion, but the attempt was a failure. "The sneakln' ole dlvll has got me fixed fer good an' all this time. I'll be a dead man Inside of two hours," he went on, huskily. "Yaas, I'll be a dead man, an' ole Cy Orandy 'II be goln' round braggln' 'bout how be wiped ma out D him! ef I had my horse an' waa able to ride I'd fol iar hlni up an' settle matters with him "Whisky! Whisky!" ywc, but I hain't got the stren'th left to do It ! got lead enough la me to kill an elephant. Ola Cy meant to sake aare thing of It That bullet la mj back alone would've flied me. It aiaat'r struck the muscle that works say tags, I reckon, 'cus I bala't had bo nee of 'em sesoe it hit me. But my lad la clear aa' my right arm (a all right ret an' aa' I'd girt tbe rest of ar IM, seen aa It Is, far Jeat one mora e&aeo at the bub who shot me down tat ! bm here la tao kuaaes to die All"' "Yaas," he resumed after a pause, "to die like a dog an' rot by the road aide; but by tbe Eternal, I'll get even with him yeh kin bet! He will find that I am more of a snake than a dog. A rattler can strike back even when It is dyin', an' I'll live long enough to give ole Cy Orandy his death-wound yet! Yaas, I'll do It, if it takes a hundred years!" Another pause longer than before, and then the man by the roadside went on in a hoarse whisper: I'm peterln' out mighty fast; my stren'th is goln' but I've got jest ez much grit es ever. Ef I only hed ' "Alive Tet, an'- suthln' to brace up my physical powers I'd" -, He stretched oat his right hand and it came into contact with 1 smooth, oblong-sbaped object lying on tbe blood-soaked grass by his aide. With an eager cry of joy he clutched It and hugged it to bis bosom. "Whisky! whisky! I'm good for an hour longer now!" be whispered, eager ly. "It dropped from my pocket when I fell here among the bushes an' I thought I had lost It. . Thank God, it will give me stren'th an' courage fer the job ahead of me!" Stilt clasping the flask to his breast bo fumbled with nervous, eager fingers at the stopper until it came out, and then preaslng the mouth of the flask to hla dry llpa, he thirstily gulped down the contents. "Ah! that's the stuff! I feel more like a man now," he mutttered thickly aa the last drop went trickling down hla throat I like whisky with an edge to it suthln thet'll put new life In a corpse. I'm wnth a dozen dead men this mlnet, an' I'll down ole Cy Orandy yet or know tbe reason why. 1 reckon he'll be sorry he didn't con-fls-cate that flask of moonshine when ho had the chance. Ef It warn't fer that bul let In my back I'd feel 'bout ez chipper ez ever. Bet I kin pull a trigger with tbe best of 'em yet Lemme see; whar la my gun?" Reaching down he drew a heavy six shooter from hla hip pocket and swung It Into position for action. Hla ateel gray eyes gleamed with the baleful glitter seen In tbo eyes of a wounded aaako or a wild beaat at bay. There was a smile on hla face the crafty, vindictive amile of a savage lying la wait for hla prey or gloating over the suffering of his victim tied to the torture-stake. A little browa bird alighted on a twig above his head and began cheerily alnglng, but with a wave of tho hand and aa Impatient oath ha frightened It away. Than a buzzard wheeled lazily over head, scanning with hungry eye tho earth below, and as tha wounded man looked up and saw It ho broke into sardonic laughter. "Ha, ba, ba! Yeh eeen ole Cy Oran dy out with bis gun aa' yob thought bo'd loft soma grab for yob along tbo an-" road behind him, did yeh? Well, ye got footed thai time. Yer diaaer ain't quite ready fer yeh yet, aa' 't won't bo till ole Cy glta back!" He raised bis revolver to a level with his right eye and squinted steadily along its shining barrel. For fully a minute ho bold it thus, and then dronnftd It to his aid with tha reoierlr: "Hand an' nerve ez steady as ever fer the time beln', an' now all I ask of tho Lord in Hla marc an' gnodnaaa la to send Cy Orandy back hero to git hi deaerta an' aend him quick, before the effecka of thet whisky works off an' my stren'th begins to give out Got to save It all now fer the final clinch." A half hour paased during which the wounded man neither stirred nor fcpok. Hia eyea were half cloaed, but all hla senses were on the alert. Suddenly the atiiineaa was broken by the sound of a horse' hoofs clattering on the hard mountain roadway and rapidly approaching the spot where lay tbe wounded man. Instantly ho was all attention. H turned hia face toward the point from which the horse was evidently coming, and all hla facultiea wrought up to th highest tension were strained to catch the slightest sound. Nearer and nearer came the ap proaching footsteps, until finally they halted near the spot where tbe man and the pistol lay waiting. "I thought so," gleefully whlapered the wounded man to himself. "It's ole Cy Grandy on hia way home, an' ho wants to make sure I'm dead. Waal, ho'H find out I ain't ez dead ez he'll wush I waa when he sticks his nose through these bushes." Slowly, painfully he raised himself on his left elbow. The exertion sent the red life-blood gushing forth afresh from the gaping wound In his back, but he heeded it not. His whole mind was intent upon tbe movements of his enemy. His right hand firmly grasped the stock of the heavy revolver, with his ready forefinger grimly caressing the trigger; his lips were pressed tightly together; his eyes gleamed brighter, more hatefully than ever, and his whole attitude was one of intense, nervous expectancy. The waiting man heard the horse man spring to the ground with a swag ger and an oath. Then heavy footsteps approached the spot where he lay, the bushes parted and a bloated, rough-bearded face with bloodshot eyes appeared in the open ing. "Good God! alive yet, an' an' " For one horror-filled Instant the bloodshot optics gazed fascinated into the basilisk-like orbs behind the pistol; then a shot rang out, the owner of the bloated face and bloodshot eyea pitched heavily forward across the body of his adversary, the waiting steed gave a startled snort and gal loped riderless away and two men were left dying by the roadside instead of one. ' A PEBBLE FOR EVERY OATH. Aa artistically Profane Oolf-risyers Record Turned la. There is a well-known young man in Omaha, who does Beveral other things better than he plays golf. He is a past master in artistic swearing. In fact, his anger finds expression lp such coherent streams of expletives that his reputation as a member of the Country Club is based chiefly on this accomplishment. But to get at tbe story of a famous bit of golf playing this loquacious young man dtd last week. His record is 137 or thereabouts and every time he makes the round of the course bis score grows weree and be gets more vehement in giving ex pression to what I3 uppermost in bis mind. Last Wednesday before he started on the course one of the young man's friends jokingly remarked: "Every time you swear put a clod or a chip or a piece of gravel in your pocket" This 'was early in the after noon. Just as the sun was sinking in the west a weary young man with bulging pockets staggered into the club bouse. His friends had forgotten him and supposed he had gone home. As be entered tbe door be emptied a coat pocket and pebbles rolled all over tbe reception room floor. "That's the plain d ns ," be exclaimed. From another pocket he dumped 100 pebbles which stood for a stronger number of the purely masculine vocabulary. Other pocket produced still more pebbles and clod which represented other bad words. His friends tried to call a halt, but he persisted In littering up tbe floor, remarking: "This ain't a cir cumstance. Just wait till you see the wsgonload of oats tbe caddy and tho teamster are bringing." This story Is told on the authority of friends of the artistically profane young man. From tha Omaha Bee. Ageless Woasaa n If rags. Mrs. Edwin Knoeylos of Brooklyn, the new president of the Professional Woman's league, does not believe In woman suffrage. Discussing the sub ject the other day, she said that to her mind the woman suffragist appeared as a ridiculoua being. Mrs. Knowlcs, who enjoys the reputation of knowing what she Is talking about, expressed tbe opinion that nothing was to be gained by enfranchising women "There are a many Ignorant women aa men," be say, "and giving woman the right to vote would merely Increase the num ber of voter, while their division on the Issue of the day would be about aa It I bow. The only thing that would be gained would be more trou ble for th women." But Mr. Knowle ha a strong belief In club life for ber sex. It "broadens" a woman, she day. New York Times.

Ira Wfcea a Waiae.ee Was Fatd Wttb The little bras cub, tbe Cblaese coin, the lineal descendant, In un broken order, of the bronze ax of re mote Celestial ancestor. From the regular hatchet to tbe modern coin one can trace a distinct, if somewhat broken, succession, so that it Is Im possible to say where the one leaves off and tbe other begin. Here ia how this curious pedigree flrst worked it self out: In early times, before the coin waa Invented, barter was usually con ducted between producer and consum er with metal implements, aa it atill 1 In Central Africa at the present day. At first the Chinese in that unsophis ticated age were content to use real hatcheta for this commercial purpose, but after a time, with tbe profound mercantile instinct of their race, it oc curred to some of them that when a man wanted half a hatchet s worth of goods he might as well pay for them with half a hatchet Still, aa it would be a pity to spoil a good working im plement by cutting it in two, tbe worthy Ah Sin ingeniously compro mised the matter by making tin hatchet of the usual size and shape, but far too slender for practical usage. By so doing he invented coin, and, what is more, he Invented it far earl ier than tbe claimants to that proud distinction, the Lydians, whose elec trum staters were first struck in the seventh century B.

There are many stories In this city where a nickel ia not a welcome me dium of exchange, because nothing so cheap is sold, but it is bard to believe that there is a street stand which would not welcome a five-cent pur chase. If any one is curious in this re gard let him go to one of the fruit stands in Cortlandt street, near the Pennsylvania railroad ferry, and try to make auch a purchase, says the New York Tribune. "Let me have five cents' worth of cherries," said a man the other day, pointing to a loose pile of the little red fruit. "As much as all that!" exclaimed the street merchant, and not for a single minute did he cease dusting a bunch of bananas. The intending purchaser waited a moment, then crossed tbe street and repeated his request to another stand. "Well, you're a cheap one!" exclaimed the vender. "You want to spend a whole nickel do you?'' He did not stop sort ing oranges. Tbe man who longed for cherries tried a third stand. "We can't sell you less than a dime's worth of anything at these stands," replied the man in charge. "You'll find an Ital ian up the streetwho will take the lead money. The "cheap" man decided he didn't want cherries after all, and, going into a cigar store, bought a whole bunch of cigarettes with the money. Cheap Meals la l-ooilon. "Speaking of cheap restaurants," said a gentleman who has just return ed from a visit to London, to a Wash ington Star writer, "reminds me of a dining saloon in the Whitechapel dis trict of London, where a relishing and fairly substantial meal may be had for half a penny, or one cent in our money. This cheap repast is not served up in the shape of a cut from a joint and two vegetables. It is a big brown pie, very Juicy and very hot. The absence of beefsteak is evident when you cut the pie, but you find Inside a , liberal sprinkling of sheep's liver, onions and turnips, and a plentiful supply of gravy. For a half penny extra two slices of bread and a cup of tea are supplied. Between the hours of twelve and two the poor and hungry from all parts of the east side of the city flock to the dining room. Most of the pat rons are shoeblacks, penny 'toy men, costermongers, and now and then young clerks whose salaries will not permit them to Indulge in a more cost ly dinner." Battsaa fer the Church. There is far more in the oft-repeated statement that old buttons If useful for no other purpose may serve as an offering to tbe Lord. Tt Is recorded aa a fact that a clergyman's . wife was mending clothes for her boys when one of her neighbors called In to have a friendly chat. It was not long before tbe visitor's eye wss attracted by a large basket more than half filled with buttons. The lady could not help re marking that there seemed a very good supply of buttons. Thereupon she be gan to turn tbem over and suddenly exclaimed: "Here are two buttons ex actly tbe same as those my husband had on hla last winter suit. I should know them anywhere." "Indeed," said the clergyman's wife. "I am surprised to hear it As all these buttons were found In tbe collection bag I thought I mlgbt a well put them to some use." Before she had finished speaking the visitor hastily arose and said she must be going.
