Aunt Flora xvas making some wal
nut creams that last afternoon in
March. She had to crack the nuts very
carefully to get them out xvhole , and
some halves of shelves xvere not brok
en at all. Jack's sharp eyes discovered
them in the coal-hod.
"Oh. goody ! " cried he , "they'll be
just the thing to fool Teddy xvitli lo-
morroxv , Aunt Flo. I'll stick them to
gether and he'll think they're regulai
xvalnuts. "
"I xvouldn't , " said Aunt Flo. "He
is such a little boy , and he will be
disappointed. I wouldn't , Jack. "
But Jack would. He picked out shell ;
enough to make three xvalnuts , then he
got the glue-bottle and stuck them to
gether so carefully you xvouldn't have
known they ere ever cracked.
"Don't- they look just good enough
to eat ? " laughed he. "Noxv , x\-hen they
get dry I'll put them in a paper bag
and give them to Teddy in the morn
ing. "
Then he ran out to his play , whist
ling ; and he played so long and hard
that he didn't think of the xvalnuts
again until he came home from school
next day , at noon. Aunt Flora had
put them away for him , however. She
told him where to find them.
"On the second shelf of the dining
room closet , in a paper bag. " said she.
Jack's face had a sober look. He
thought perhaps Aunt Flo didn't like
his joke.
"Maybe I hadn't best fool Teddy , "
said he. "Guess I'll take them out and
fool Johnny Wilson. I haven't been
fooled today , Aunt Flo. "
But Aunt Flo did not answer , and
when Jack got to the fining room he
found Teddy there. It did seem too
good a chance to be lost. Jack took
the bag of xvalnuts from the closet
"Hello , Teddy ! " said he ; "have some
nuts ? "
"Oh. yes ! " cried Teddy , running to
get the tack hammer. Ho liked wal
nuts almost better than anything else.
"You're the bestest boy , Jack , " he
At xvhieh Jack looked sober again. I
think he felt a little bit ashamed.
After all. it xx-asn't the best of fun to
fool a little five-year-old boy. and his
oxvn brother , too. But he gave Teddy
the bag.
In less than two seconds down came
the hammer on the first walnut. It
cracked very easily , indeed , and it had
the funniest kernel you ex-er saxv in
a nut a bright nexv dime ! It didn't
take long to crack the other txvo , yon
may be sure ; and there xvere thirty
cents enough to buy two xvhole
pounds of walnuts.
"Oh , oh ! " cried Teddy , astonished
beyond measure. "Are they mine ?
Where did 'em come from ? "
Jack's face xwts red as a rose. He
was almost ready to feel cross about
it : but looking up , he saw Aunt Flo
smiling in the doorxx-ay. and laughed
instead , a little sheepishly.
" 1 guess I'm like the story you told
about the man that threxv the boom
erang. Aunt Flo , and it came back and
hi ; him , " said he. "But I'm glad of

When a boy does something tha ; is
particularly good or noble his com
rades say "He ' s a brick ! " for to call a
fellow "a brick" is as high a compli
ment as one boy can pay to another.
If we stop to think about it , though ,
iteems rather strange that a brick
fhould be chosen as a standard for
measuring the worth of a boy. There
is surely nothing very wonderful or
fine about a brick. But. like a great
many other sayings that do not appear
to have much sense , we shall find , by-
looking up the origin of the expression ,
that it started out with a very sensible
inclining. In order to get at its be
ginning , xve have to go back into &n-
t-int history for a distance of uine
hundred years before Christ all the
way back to the time of Lycurgus , th <
gicat Spartan ruler. Plutarch tells ui
that Lycurgus had a great many wise
and curious notions as to hoxv peoph
should live and how the affairs of Mi
country should be managed. One of hi-
ideas xvas .that there xvas no necessity
for building a wall about a town > f the
soldiers xvere properly trained to pro
tect the place. On one occasion an am
bassador from a neighboring countr ;
came to see Lycurgus , and he askei
hoxv it xvas that he had no xvalb
around the town. "But xve have xvalls , '
replied Lycurgus , "and if you will cow.
with mo I will show them to you. '
Thereupon he took his guest out upir
the plains where the army xvas drawr
up in battle array , and , pointing tc
the ranks of the soldiers , he said :
"These are the xvalls of Sparta , ani
every man is a brick. " So you ce =
when the expression xvas first used n
had a great deal more sense than it ha'

While three men were hunting ir
Idaho , one gax'e a shout , and the others
ran to his assistance. They found hiir
clinging to some x'ines. that grew or
the edge of a great hole in the ground
at least thirty feet in diameter. Aftej
hauling him out , he explained that h
had xvalked into the hole xvhile lookint
ahead for game , and only saved himseli
by the merest chance. The hunter :
came back the next day xvith ropes ant
lowered a man into the pit. He report
ed that it xvas nearly sixty feet deep
and half-xvay down xvas narrowed ii
like an hour glass , so that any living
thing falling into the pit could nevei
get out without assistance. As a proof
the floor of the pit xvas strewn xw.l
the carcasses of bear , deer and lessei
game. The luckless animals at differ
ent times had evidently fallen into the
pit , perhaps xvhile being chased , and
of course , xvere unable to climb the

er hunts for a grizzly , but xvhen one
comes in sight hardly any one can re
frain from firing at him. This xvas the
case xvith txvo men in Montana , xvhc
were going over the mountains on z
narrow trail , xvhen they saxv a grizzly
on the rocks above. Both men prompt
ly took to shelter and consulted. The
grizzly xx-as evidently coming to i
spring nearby to drink , and was mind
ing its oxx'n business , but one of the
men thought he saxv a chance , anc
fired. The bullet hit the bear in the
neck. This merely irritated him enougl
to make him look around for his tor
mentors , and presently he was in ful
chase. They ran at a lively pace , bu1
would have been caught had they not
scrambled up the rocks. The grizzly
scrambled up , too , but presently al
sounds of pursuit ceased. Looking
back , they saxv the bear jammed be
tween two rocks. Before he could bad-
out , one of the men ran back and pu ;
a ball in the grizzly's ear , and the chase
xvas over. It xvas such a narrow es
cape , however , that .the hunters re
solved to avoid grizzlies in future.
In Los Angeles , a resident exhibits
the skin of a mountain lion , got in i
peculiar xvay. He xvas riding leisurely

lion crossed his path , and xvas slink

rashly fired at it xvith a light shot
gun he carried. The lion , slightly
xvounded. came back in a rage anc '
made a dash at him. The horse shiee :
and the man xvas thrown , striking his
head against a rock , and causing in
sensibility. When he came to his
senses his horse was standing ox-ei
him , and a dead lion lay a little dis
tance axvay. He examined the beast
and found its skull crushed like ar
eggshell. The horse had got a fail
crack at him with his heels , and made
an end of him.

The foientiiner of a train of evils , which
