very dry lie wasn't dry for want
of water, lotmintido, root beer or limer.
Mo could have quenched most any
thirst by stopping into a saloon and
salug to tlio baikeep
"Whew! Is thlB hot enough for ou?
Hot Vtn up again, old man."
It was that tho pinfcssor's attitude
was dry lie was dry outside and In.
Ho never got excited A presidential
election wnn no moro to him than a lo
pn dog tight I lu never gossiped Ho
Jii'vcr took up frivolous questions,
vmch as the tariff on lamb chops, He
had lew acquaintances, uml those ho
forgot to bow to half tho time.
Professor Mascoinli was Jiiht a pro
fessor He filled the chair of natural
history at tins state college at luka
and given the leg of u grasshopper ho
could tell in what period of tlie world
he lived and died and why he inner
got to he a clam or a coon
1 On his arrival at lukr the professor
was offered board and lodging and all
the comforts of home at tlie Wood- j
nun eoiinge nr wnui socmen n rea
tollable late, and ho installed himself
there. He didn't earn about the name.
It would have linen tlie same to 111 ia
hail the cottage been named the Ox
Tall Hive He didn't care much about
his room, his food or his bed.
Theiu was one other thing the pro
fessor didn't care much about at the
Woodbine, and that was Miss Joy Mar
ton Miss ,loy was thirty-seven years
old and still heart-free She and her
mother owned tho Woodbine. They
made li a rule to tako one gentleman
Wilder from the college, and every
time the old boarder went and n new
cue n placed him the town gossips
predicted that Miss .ley would succeed
in her fall designs. That is, of course,
she would lasso him and lead him to
'.ho matrimonial altar.
While Professor ltascomb was dry
very dry-Miss Joy was glrly and
kittenish and romantic. She wanted
to read and talk of knights and chev
aliers and squires and dames and ab
ducted maidens. Professor Ilascornb
wanted to talk about tho dodo and the
mammoths. Whore was the common
Miss Joy wnnted to read and weep
over "Tho Sewing Machine Olrl."
Tlie professor wanted to catch and
examine the hearts nnd lungs of bats
and crickets. Why, if they mot on tho
street tire professor was as apt to ad
dress her as Mrs. Perkins or Miss
Sehomorhorn as by her right name.
They did not lack moro than a mllo
or two of being as far apurt as the
Without admitting that Miss J. over
had any designs upon tho professor, It
may be stated Unit at the crrd of six
months the girl mused to herself:
"I give him up. He 1b impossible.
Ho will never como within 10 rods of
being a hero. He. would boo rats eat
mo up nnd not como to the rou"ito."
All of this was very natural in a
weary old maid.
Three or four days later at tho din
ner tnble, whero tho professor seldom
spokn at all, ho suddenly said:
"I see that there Ib to bo a circus in
Gasps of astonishment from mother
and daughter. Gasps that there was
to be a circus, and gasps that tho pro
fessor had referred to it.
"And I think we'll attend."
Gasps of tho gasplngest kind.
"Yes, I want you both to go with
Had Profefisor Uoscomb suffered a
sunstroke? Tho women turned palo
as they looked from him to each oth
er. "I don't enro much about tho circus
part of it. but I should like to Btudy
tho animals, particularly tho lion. Per
haps I shall bo able to glvo you sorno
information you havo never ncqulre'd."
No, mother nnd daughter did not
know the Hon very well. Tlioy had
heard him spoken of as tho king of
beasts, but with eggs at llfty cents a
dozen, and butter almost ns much per
pound, with nlno liars in the United
States to ono truthtellor, they had ta
kon only a passing Interest In Leo.
Tho day and tho hour camo nnd as
they stood before tho cage of the kan
garoo tho professor musingly said:
"Australia Is tho truo homo of tho
kangaroo. He Is not a flesh-eating ani
mal, and will not attack man unless
driven to the wall. You may wonder
at tho length of his hind legs. Why
wasn't he created to run on four legs
tho samo ns a wolf?"
Miss Joy looked at her mother, and
her mother looked at her. Thoy had
run a boarding hnuso for tho last ten
years, but It had never occurred to
them to ask tiro question or uttempt
to find tho nriBwer.
"Tho kangaroo Is not a predatory
animal," continued the professor, "Qn
tho contrary, ho Is as timid ns tho
hare, itoth must depend upon tliolr
nlortnesB nnd lleetness to escape their
foes, Thus it comes about that, their
gait Is by leaps and bounds, and that
by standing up on their hind legs tlioy
can look for their cnomleB."
"Mother, did you ever!" asked MIsb
Joy ns sho drew a long breath.
"No, daughter, I never did!" was tho
solemn reply '
"Tho tnll of a dog or cat is merely
ornamental. Behold tho tall of tho
kangaroo! It is a cushion on which
'ha sits. It nssiBtB him to rise In a
'hurry. It acts riB a rudder to steer
ihlur when leaping through tho air. If
driven to defend himself ho usos claws
and tnll. Ono blow of tho tall will
break u man's ribs or leg."
"Just think of that mother!" gasped
"Yes, I am thinking of It, daughter!"
"Kangaroo meat Is not ranked
among the delicacies," oald tho pro
fessor, "but It Is very nutritious, in
fact, one pound of It has moro nutri
ment lu It than a pound and a quarter
of Chicago beef, and at half tho cost.
It is a wonder to me that American
capitalists havo not arranged to im
port kangaroo meat."
"If they would only arrange, moth
er!" sighed Miss Joy as she remem
bered the price of tlie last1 beefsteak.
"Perhaps the liomocratle party will
bring it about," replied the mother.
At this moment a stranger who had
been listening to the wise tsjlk butted
irr by asking the professor:
"Did you say that kangaroo could
knock a man gaily west with a blow ol
"Gosh all hemlock! Say, don't you
think the bird could be taught to use
his tnll'ni a pile-driver?"
"Ladles ahem -we will now pass
on to the king of beasts," was the
"Mother, what Is a pile-driver?"
whispered the daughter.
"It's a machine they use to drive
mouc) out of a college student when
he's behind on his board!"
"Leo, the lion, has been written
about by hundreds of hunters nud nat
uralists," began tho professor as they
came to tho proper cage, "and yet wo
do not know hlin as he Is. He Is a
beast of moods, One day he will at
tack a man with great llcrceness. The
next ho will Uee from him. Hy nature
hu is carnivorous. Meat Is his sole
diet, and his appetite demands at least
thirty pounds per day. A full grown
lion has been known to devour tho bol
ter hair or nn ox lu one night."
"Suppose we bad one for n board
er?" gasped Miss Joy.
"Lord! Lord!" almost walled thu
"Man Is the only living thing the
Hon fears, nnd not always him," said
the professor. "It Ib asserted that II
man will look Leo steadily In the
eyes for three or four minutes "
He broke off there to draw himsell
up and fold Ills arms and stare nt tho
beast with a scowl, wrinkling his foro
bend Leo stood It for about forty
seconds. Then with a growl and a
roar he plunged against the bars with
such force that they gave way nnd ho
sprang down upon Miss Joy.
"Ilun! Ilun! The Hon Is Iooko!"
There was a wild scattering. Mrs.
Morton fainted away and fell to earth,
but tho professor never turned a hair.
Tlie Hon crouched down and laid n
pay on his victim nnd growled.
"Tho tnll of a Hon is not tho tall of
a kangaroo," said the professor as ho
stooped down and clutched It. "Never
theless, It is capable of sustaining
great weight when used thus!"
And next moment ho had lifted tho
beast from tho ground as a boy might
a cat and wns swinging him In n cir
cle. There were yells and cheers nnd
cries of "hold him!" and presently tho
circus people camo running with ropes
nnd Leo was thrust Ignomlnously
back Into his cago.
Miss Joy wasn't hurt, her mother re
covered from her faint, and profossor

aged to tell him so, and though ho
called her Mrs, Calhoun nnd Mrs.
