at alL They remained at all times
distinctly separate, like the streaks
of fat and lean in a piece of bacon.
Three weeks ago last Wednesday
Bocce woke with his hot Italian na
ture hi the saddle, so to speak, and an
overpowering desire came upon him
to write a -Black Hand letter, so he sat
down and began to write one. but
whew he was about half through his
cautious Scotch nature warned him
that he was doing a very dangerous
thing, and that if he was discovered

dagger in his hand he knew he must
be prepared for the worst, and that
he had a cruel Italian nature to deal
with. So he took his shotgun in the
other hand and' sallied forth, bound,
at all costs, to protect himself.
But hardly had he stepped outside
the door than he weakened. What,
after all, was $100 as compared with
his life? He went back 'into the
house and took ten ten-dollar bills from
his sock,, and went out again. He
walked to the crossroads and tucked
the money under the stone, and then
stood back behind a tree to see what
would happen. In a minuto or so he
laid his shotgun on the ground and
stole slowly toward- the flat stone.
Glancing cautiously around, he lifted
the stone, picked up the $100 and
slipped it into his pocket, with a
cruel Italian chuckle of glee.
At that moment his stanch Scotch
nature rebelled. Never would he be
robbed in this manner! With a cry of
anger he dashed for the shotgun, and
at the very moment that he laid his
hand upon it his left hand drew the trig
ger. Then ensued a terrific struggle,
in which his Italian nature had all
the advantage. Try as he would he
was always too close to himself to
use the shotgun, while the dagger was
Just the weapon to use at close quar
ters. With a groan he dashed the
shotgun from him, and closed in
upon himself. Again and again he
wrested the dagger from himself, only
to have it wrested away again. At
length he put his knee upon his chest,
and pinned himself down thus, he
seized his ear in his teeth, and bit un
til he cried for mercy. Then, putting
his hand in his pocket he pulled out
the ten bills and put them in his pock
et He had triumphed.
All the way home his proud Scotch
nature gloated on this unequaled
achievement and he took his seat at
his dinner table with a feeling of
great content He felt in his pocket
to see that the $100 was still there,
and it was.
"That for the Black Hand!" he cried,
snapping his fingers, and he set to
work devouring his'-meal.
Suddenly he paused and a look of
fright and amazement came over his
face. He paused with his fork half
way to his face, and stared at it He
was eating spaghetti! Instantly he
knew what had happened. In his ter
rific struggle with himself he had
mixed his two natures, and the Ital
ian nature had triumphed after all!
He had allowed himself to take the
$100 away from himself. He had al
lowed himself to black-hand him
self. As he finished his meal he laughed
merrily to think how-he had carried
out his threat and at the same time
the tears ran down his cheeks as he
thought how he had been victimized.

it came down on him and held him

rage. "I feel like I could chew it up
