THE SPOTTED BRONCHO.
(Walt Mason, in Ainslce's Magazine.)
"Stranger, let me sell you a hose, I'll
give you such a bargain you'll talk
about it all your born days."
The speaker, a tall, melancholy man
in ragged garments, was leaning against
the wheel of his canvas-covered wagon.
His horses were lariated on the roadside,
cropping the dusty grass. Several sore,
footed, lean doga lay under the wagon,
panting. The canvas of the vehicle was
closely drawn, and from within came
the sound of moaning and Bobbing.
The stranger alighted from his buggy
and cast a knowing glance over the
weary, bony horses.
"Which hoss d'ye want to sell?" he
"The spotted one; and a better chunk
of hoeeflesh wasn't ever done up in hide.
Sure, he looks a little tough now; been
on the road all the way from Oklahoma,
and mighty little grain for him. But
he's sound as a bullet and'U work any
place you put him; single or double,
don't make no difference. Uate to part
with him, and that's a fact. Got to,
"He's curbed in that otT hind leg."
"JuBt a little. Don't hurt him none.
You can blister that curb off in ten
"He's too long in the back to suit me."

Canker Sore Mouth Cured.
Lincoln, Nkiik., July 7, 1901.
Tills Is to certify that I have been under the
care of the British Doctors for two months, and
I now can say that I am perfectly cured. I suf

months and as a consequence my sytein was
run down and I felt much disheartened. I now
feel perfectly well and thank the Doctors for
their courteous treatment.

"She's in trouble I'll split the
difference, stranger; gimme twelve and

you won't take fifty for him. I got to
have the money, that's why I sell."
"I won't give more'n ten; but say, that
woman must be sufTerin awful. What
is the matter?"
"Come and see."
He pulled the canvas apart at the
rear end of the wagon, and stepped aside
that the stranger might look in. A wo
man was weeping and wringing her
handa over a child's form lying on a
pile of horse blankets. The face of the
child was drawn and white, but peace
ful. The woman looked at the stranger
with stony, unseeing eyes, and wailed.
The stranger stepped back reverently
and closed the canvas.
"Poor thing!" he whispered. "How
long has the child been dead?"
"Two hours," said the melancholy
man, in a broken voice. "The last of
three; they all died on the road. I want
to buy a coffin
