THDftiS THE DOCTOR SEES.
An Old Pbyslelan Tells of Dylns; Wo
man's Stranse Bequest.
The old doctor was in rather a sentimen
tal mood. I have noticed that of all liquors
to make people sentimental hot Scotch
whisky seems to be tho mo3t effective. It
mellows the emotion, so to speak, and
plays on the lachrymal ducts. Strange
tbat from such a bleak, cold country
should come the mosteraotiouul of liquors.
A man when he is full of hot Scotch whis
ky becomes affectionate and kindly and
quotes poetry sentimental poetry. The
old doctor had been talking very sentimen
tally about sick people and death, and
other cheerful themes.
"Ah, well," he said. Tve bepn a doctor
forty years. I have seen many sad scenes;
but I never stood at a deathbed without
mourning for the living."
"I have seen some laughable things, too,"
said the doctor. "Human nataro comes out
when people are very sick. I was called iu
once to nttend a lady who was taken sud
denly ill and was quite sure she was going
to die. There was nothing very serious tho
matter with her but she was quite sure her
end was near.
" 'Doctor,' she said, I know I am going
to die. Don't tell my husband, but let mo
ask one favor before I go.'
"What is it?" I asked.
" -Whisper, doctor. Ask Mary to fix my
bangs before tbey bnry me.' " New York

THE PROFESSIONAL BORE.
Kb, me t Tf s bed,-time ones r;ain.
So runs the world away ;
But this, for me at least, has been
A most successful day.
For in my (tamest aim to be
A postilratfal bora
There everywhere has come to me
Successes br the score.
How I havopreyel on busy men
Whose timo was all employed I
I've wondered in and out again,
While dozens I've annoyed.
I've made men break engagements
And wreck their trades, alas 1
For, having naught my time to take.
I bother him who has.
In summer when the weather's warm
I close the doors aU tight;
But leavo them in the. winter's storm
Wide open, with delight.
I smoko a horrid cigar.
Which I myself abhor;
Folks wish 'twere somewhero very for
That's what I smoke it for.
To-night while at the theater
I talked about the play,
So that a score or more could her
And wish me far away.
Between the acts I wandered on.
And managed to be gone
Until I knew beyond a donbs
The play again was on.
and so I'm glad of my success
In efforts to annoy
And drive away the happiness
That makes this world a joy.
So now I'll play my cracked cornet
Ere I to rest repair;
The neighbors will their dreams forget
And want to wildly swear.
BY ESTHER SERLE KENNETH.
"You are not afraid?"
"No; I am not afraid."
Bird Donaldson's eyes wore as clear
as the starlight under which she stood,
slender and snnple in her black habit,
with her lover and two horse-3. The
house above them loomed silent and
still. Childreth's face showed pale un
der the slouched black hat ho wore, as
he tossed her into the paddle. Site
pressed his hand.
"Do not fear for me. I shall go
through. I will go with you any
where." He hold his arm about her in tho sad
dle for a moment, trying to say some
thing, but lie did not say it. Ho
turned and nntethered his own horse,
vaulted up, and the two stepped quietly
away over the gras. Suddouly Bird
drew rein. Her dog was following.
fcGo baok, Jack O, go back, dear
Jack." she said, sorrowfully.
The animal lay dowu on the ground,
whining. The girl's lip quivered iu the
darkness; the old dog was all she had
to leave. The gate was open, they
"Bido on the sods at the side of the
road," whispered Childreth, "until we
are out of hearing; and save your horso
as much as you can. Easy, Don."
The horse was large, and black, and
beautiful, and as ho stepped out, tho
drooping figure above his shoulders
seomed a part of him. One of the sad
dles was new, and creaked a little; it
seemed to Bird that tho sound could be
heard a long way. When tho road
turned, she looked back at tho house,
and Chiidroth looked back, too, bnt
there were no lights to be soon, nor any
noise that sounded bike pursuit, to be
heard. They broke into a gentle lope.
"If we can get to tho 'Strangers' be
fore twelve o'clook, we are safe;" said
Childreth. He was watching her
through the dusk, anxiously. "Gently,
"mat time is it now?"
"Nine miles. Now we may rido
faster. Lift Don gently at the creeks.
Keep him loping short and steady, or I
fear you cannot hold him."
They stretched off across the fields.
Bird knew every stop of the way.
When they came to the woods, she
could have told you what every tree
was. The road wound through almost
in darkness. Honeysuckle was wet
with dew, and they seemed to be in a
eloud of sweets.
"Faster'" said Childreth, suddenly.
She heard it, too, that faint stroke of
a horse's hoof. In her fear, she was
mad enough to tonch Don with her
whip. He plunged and kicked in a
passion of anger, aud then stood still in
"Don, for God's sake!" she pleaded.
In that fearful moment sho hoard a fall,
Sho turned her head. Childreth's sad
dle was empty. She heard him moan
upon the ground.
In an instant she was on her feet
down among the wet grasses. She
lifted his head to her knee, aud kissed
his face. He had fainted. She broke
the branches of dripping fern, and
shook the dew upon his face. She
could not see when his eyes opened,
but she could hear him grit his teeth
My leg is broken; your horse kicked
me," he said. "I am helpless, and you
must go alone."
"To a log house on the banks of the
Stranger. An old man live3 there who
will take care of you. Send me help.
O, my God!" in agony.
uO, Chiidroth!" she sobbed.
"Yon can find it, for the road is
straight until you come to the river,"
he went on commanding himself. "Then
show Don the rein ; he has been there a
hundred times with me. O, my child,
be qniok! this is dreadful!"
She sprang up and vaulted into the
saddle. They sped forth like an arrow.
She never stirred the rein, for no horso
could have flown faster. The contin
uous rush of cold air stung her face.
How set aud white it showed under the
stars! On on on, at times she forgot
where she was, but the horse, never.
With his face set toward the river, he
ran as if he had understood his master's
words and knew his errand. It was his
own brave heart that seemed to urge
him. Never for a moment did he
slacken or stumble. When the wretched
girl he bore heard once agairtathat pur
suing footfall, she still sat silent, know
ing tbat her only helper was doing all
that could be done. The great cotton
wood trees flew by them Don's breath
grew labored. Never once had he fal
tered, and though growing sick in the
saddle, Bird dared not detain him.
Prom behind she heard a measured
lope. As it drew nearer, it came close
to cutting her off from every happiness
"Go on, dear Don," she murmured,
"save your master and me."
The pace of the noble horse was al
ways steady, or she would have fallen
from the saddle, soill and weak iu
The footfall beyond were swift
and hurried. Plainly could she per
ceive that they were getting nearer.
Her dark eyes were full of horror as
she listened. Her low moans served
her better than any whip. It was not
her fancy that Don heard and under
stood it all. If it had not been for the
darkness, sue would have seen
how watchfnl and bright his great eyes
They thundered over the bridge. It
was but a moment before the horse in
the rear struck the bridge also. Look
ing back. Bird could see her pursuer.
She knew then what was almost in
evitable. Gordon Churchill was
mounted on a whito horse which was
the pride of his stables. His pace and
endurance were indeed wonderful.
"God help me!" said Bird in despair.
At the sound of her voice, Don
broke his pace and turned. To hez
horror, he rushed straight toward her
foe. He rushed straight toward him.
He raised himself, and towered above
the great, gleaming, white horse, who
threw himself upon hi hauohes. Don
seized the rider. He grasped him by
the shoulder, tore him from the saddle,
and throwing himself back, literally
shook the life out of him. The man
dropped to the ground, senseless for
ever. And Bird looked down at the black
heap in the road, knowing that the man
was dead. He was her half-brother.
As a child he had struck her bare
shoulders with hU riding-whip. He
had knocked her down. And yet, as
her guardian, he would have forced her
to marry him. She loathed the very
air he breathed, so she looked down at
him and said, from her heart, "I am
glad you are dead I"
On then, two mile? more. She
never knew what the road wa-:. Don
went as he would snatching a mouth
ful of water at tho river, as he turned
along its banks, and carried his rider
under the bows of treo-, through thick
ets of purple fragrauco, which sho
knew by its scent, up to the door of a
low, log house. A light instantly ap
peared, and old Jim Alloa came to her
"Is it you, honey, all alono?" he
"It's Miss Donaldson. Mr. Childreth
is hurt and is lying iu tho woods on the
turnpike. You must go to him in
stantly." Old Jim peered up at the face whoso
owner told such news in such a calm
voice He put up his arms to her. She
dropped into them in a swoon.
In the gray light of the morning she
raised her head from the bed of hunter's
blankets, where she lay, and saw from
the window, old Allen leading two
horses up to the door. Ono of them
was Churchill's white horso, and he
helped bear the litter on which Chil
dreth lay all but dead. They brought
him iu, ghastly and senseless.
"Shake up a good bed, wife," whis
pered the old man to his crone of a
wifo. "He'll lie by for weeks."
Bird heard. She stood silent, look
ing down on the unconscious, death-like
"Who is going for a doctor?" she
"I am," said Allen.
"As soon as I can put a good horse
over five miles of hilly road."
"Bring also a clergyman."
"Good gracious, child! what for?"
"To marry us."
"Tho young lady is crazy," exclaimed
Mother Allen. "Why, yer foolish
young thing, yer may be a widdor in an
"Do as I tell you," with quiet deter
mination to Allen. "I must bo his wife,
and take care of him, whether ho lives
ordio?. Wo were to have been mar
ried horo to-day, any way. Now he
needs me more than ever. Bring a
clergyman I must have my way."
At sunrise three horsemen rode up to
tho door. Ono was the master of the
honso, who introduced tho others. An
other was a good physician. The third
was a clergyman of tho nearest parish.
All were rather bewildered by the calls
made upon them, of course, but each
was prevailed upon to do what was re
quired of him. A wedding was nearly
followed by a funeral, but not quite.
A good constitution and untiring nurs
ing brought Childreth up from death's
door. Iu four weeks both left the
country, asd never knew tho fate of tho
body left on the turnpike.

"By the way," said a Washington
man the other day, "Chief Bushyhead
of the Cherokee Nation was here a while
ago, and seeing him crossing the lobby
ut Willard s I asked a friend who was
with me, named Van Wyok, if he would
like to be introduced.
"Why. said Van Wyck, astonished,
'you don't mean to say that handsomely
dressed and distinguished looking man
over there is an Indian?"
"'Decidedly, yoV I replied. 'Here
he comes now. Mr. Bushyhead, let me
introduce my friend, Mr. Van Wyck.'
"'Happy to meet you, Mr. Van
"'Charmed to have the privilege of
knowing you, Mr. Bushyhead. And

"'I trust bo,' blandly responded the
Chief, ex-Governor of Indian Territory,
and one of tho very rich men of that en
lightened and prosperous region.
" 'And are all of the Indians in your
tribe as civilized as yourself?' inquired
utJ)o you all live in tents and wig
wams?" "'Certainly. Here is a picture of my

pocket of his coat a photograph of a
beautiful Queen Anne cottage, which
could not have cost less that $35,000.
"'That is my summer wigwam,' said
Bushyhead, with grave affability, 'I
have another for winter in town.

nudges I gave him while he was putting
his questions, tumbled at last. I under

MOW TO SHARPEN PENCILS.
A Ltttl IswtnsctJasi For PeepU Wke ThJsJc

"It really makes me tired to see the av
erage'teaa sharpen a pencil," -aid an old
aevspaper roan in a stationery store. "He
will cut his Sogers, cover them with dirt,
and blacken them with lead-dast, and still
will not sharpen the pencil.
"There is but one way to sharpen a lend
pencil, and tbat is to grasp it firmly with
the point from yon and not toward you.
Take your knife in the other hand and
whittle away as thouRh jon bad lots of pen
cils to waste. By following th se direc
tions and taming the pencil over yoa will
soon have it neatly and regnlaily sharp
ened and vonr lingers will be uosoiled aid
yoa will not need any court plaster to pat
on th woauds, becsase vou cannot cat
your fingers when whittling from them.
-'This m-thod is te best wbtther the
knife is dall or eharp. If the pencil is a
soft one there is no sense in sharpening
the lead. Simply cut away the wood, aud
in writiog turn the pencil over, thus writ
ing with the sides of the lead.
"Another disgusting an1 senseless hubit
Is placing the pencil in the month when
writing. This is a relic of the dys when
pencils were as hard as flint and before the
manufacturers wera able to produce the
smooth, soft pencils that are used to-day.
This continual dampening of tbe lead will
harden even a Rood graphite pencil and
make it hard and gritty. .It is simply a

Mrs. Mona Catrd, the inquisitive lady
who fltst cast the interrogatory bombshell
into a panic-strioken crowd, "Is Marriage
a Failure?" has lately been stadjing
bnddhism. Here is ou instance whete
she found an affirmative answer. Tbe
matrimonial relations of the Baddha family
were not as satisfactory as could have been
desired, even for the stage of civilization
existing 2,300 years age. Before this
conple bad been married a 3 oar Gautama

under a bo tree until, by lung reflection aud
deep contemplation, he discovoied that life

century, appeared perfectly willing to live

Aud then as the sonnd of two beating
