** thought in his mind of any accident
occurrmg to one of Uncle Sam’s most
trusted servants. But in some unguarded
moment the gentle zephyrs of Kansas
had whisked his shirt from its place of
suspension and carried it out across the
boundless prairie to deck the form of
some unkempt farmer lad. But the look
of unalloyed agony that flitted across
that genial mail clerk’s face, when, after
performing his ablutions, just before his
arrival at St. Francis, and when in pleas
ant anticipation of his supper, so soon to
be partaken of, and the sense of work
well and faithfully done, he reached for
his shirt—which, by the way, he was in
the habit of taking off, while at work, so
that it might be fresh and neat when he
came out in public—would have brought
tears to the eyes of the most hardened
wretch living. "But of all sad words of
tongue or pen” were these, he didn’t
have another shirt to wear upon his ar
rival at St. Francis and had to make a
handkerchief do duty, as he had consci
entious scruples against wearing decolette
costumes. But its all right, Dave, “Ve
vont give it avay.”
