freely cnongh, and do risk 'cm many a

time; but for all that wo don't quite go

in for tho fire-eating busiuesa. If we

did you'd only hcarof more firemen lost

and fewer other people saved.

Of course, it does happen tlmt after

you are in a house that is ou fii'c, flniuea

But DO fireman would go iuto' a room

that was nli'oady in flumes. Under or­

dinary circumsiouces there would bo no

need for Iiim to do so. If there were

people iu tho room, and they had got to

the window, they tu>uld be got out with

tbo escape ; while if they hadn't got to

tho window, it would be'llfty chances to

one against their being alive. Tho

smoke would most likely have done its

work ou tliem before the flames broke

out. tjo far as human life is concerned,

smoke is more fatal than fire; and it is

perhupa. well that it is, for suffocation

is a more merciful death than bqrntag

would ba I've had one or two pretty

bad burns, and once I was in the smoke

till I dropped iiiseusible, so that 1 know

what I'm talkiu;; about.

What caused lue to stay in tho smoke

so long? Well, I'll tell you; tlio only

one thing Ihat could have mode me stay

—to save life. It was at my first fire.

I had beeu iu the brigade sume months,

and knew my duties as.fiir as instruc­

tion and drill could teach me, but till

this night I had ucver bccu at an actual

Urn.

Well, just before twelve o'clock, and

wliilo I wai on duty, they telegraphed

tu lis from the next station—you kuow

each station is ^-eiierally iu direct tele­

graphic comniuDieiilion 'vith tliree or

four others—that (lieif^ was a fire at a

big draper's up tlit-ir May. I gave the

alarm, und ju less tban a minute my

mates were out uud bueUling-to, and UJ

less than five minuUi^ we^ntcro dashing

along the rood, giving vQouth tu our

"Clear the woy I" When wo got to the

place there were two other engines at

work, and a great crowd cheering and

shouting.

Well, I was a strong, beolthy young

fellow, and bad joiuud the brigade as

much from u liking V^lbu work us any

thing, Koeiug tbero was u du^eu other

things X oould have earned the same

numey at; for three-and-sixpenoe a dty

which is what you «re started at, iun't

gi\.:ito mo tor. U was an afiair of

BOinething tho samo Rort llioiinh. There

was two women in (ho house that linio;

hut a flro-esiwpe conductor had got one

of them out. and ha.l mado throe at­

tempts to wive Ihe other, before I got

up. When 1 did get on the ground ho

told mo how tiling.-* stood, and t^o \ put

a ladder iij) to (lie window, went into

the room and fonnd her, and handed

her nnt to him. Ku had tho Imint of

the Work, but lookIii lose their Jieads at a fire,

aud uo wonder »;ither, for when you

(hiiik of it, it uiii&t he an awful thing to

wake in the night and find yourself in a

burning houbc.

Well, yes, people in their fright do

Bonuftiiuis make tht; work of Nuviiig

thi-m more tlillieutt ttia), it wi'uld bit

otherwise. lJ(-«t half pen through ; aud that is (ho

hardest tu guard agaiiibt. I should say

that teu people were hilled or hurt by

the fall of buildings for ono by fire. I

remember seeing n comrade uf mino

standing ou n firm looking place

when in an instant, aud wilhout so much

as a crack or a shake tu give him warn­

ing the wall that the beam was built iu­

to gave woy, and beam nnd man went

crashing together two sttirys down, and

we saw no it>oro of him till hours after-

wajda, when we got his body out, burnt

to a cinder.

Just a little while back, agaiu, 1 was

at work in a flour mill that had been

burnt out 'Ihe floors were fireproof

ones, aud the building was reckoned

unoommouly strong, and certainly look­

ed it. Weil, another man and I were

working on one ol tho floors, when the

hand that was carrying, round the ro-

frehhmenta came MUA asked us if we

wanted any thing. Wo both said no,

and ho turued away : but before he had

gone many feet \ tiltered my mind, aud

thought I would just take a drop of

somelliing to drink—for working in a

fired building is a hot berth, let me t^jll

yuu, even after the fire bo* beeu put out

—so I stepped ufter him, and ho was

juht filling mo out a glass of beer when

there came a crash like a cla|> of thun­

der jUbt behind me, aud tuiuiug round

I kaw—as soou as tlie dust cleorwl away

a bit—that the building had fallen in

just wheielhud been standing not A

minute before.

The other man lay buried in the ruins,

biouu dead, as 1 would have beeu if X

hadn't by (he merest chunco ha]i]>eued

tu muve. Wy heai-t went cold as I saw

what a narrow esuipe I bod. T thought

how true it was what the Scripture suya.

'•Oue shall bo taken uud the other left."

That's always the text I tliiuk uf when

I see a thing uf that sort. I might have

stepped iuto the danger just us 1 step­

ped out of it. Kueh (huigs h'ok all

ehuuoe, but we ore uU in the Muster's

hands, tu be taken or left, us he may

you may safely set down a lire-inan'a lifo

It's our duty to ridk onr liven, wo'ro

paid to do it, hut wtierii saving the lives

of others ifi eoneenn'd we risk Ihrm full

and free, and for pity's sake, and man­

hood's Rake, as well UH duty's sake. I'ra

never pcen a fireman shrinlt frum doing

anything that n iiiaii could be fairly ex­

pected to d'. Not as I mean to pay,

mind yon, t!i;it. Ihey are tiio only ones

that would ri.sic tlreir lives to save a fel­

low ereaturo from lire. I've seen police­

men, and wurkiiigmen, and gcntlcmon

Blivo life as bravely as it could 1)0 Raved

and ci'.rryinrT th'ir own lives in their

hand to do it. .\y ! and I'vo seen wo.-n-

ever for Ji bad job. Sliu got Kevcrely

BPorchcd over it, ifw true, but slio got

the child out unharmed, nnd was all

right again herself at the end of a few

weeks.

Xot long in getting to a firo? Well,

not a Fc^ond longer ihan can possibly

bo h(yl|)ed, of euiiriio. Hharp'a always

tlio word and the deed too with lis, for

in our buRinesa time's monoy and it may

bo lifo. You Roo wo either live in tho

station or wilhin enll of it, and wo

mnstn't move a yard nway without pay­

ing wliero Wi! aro going, HO that idl

hands nro nlways within rt'ach. I'vo

known tho dart to l>e mado in two min­

utes nnd a half from tlio time of our

getting tho mes^a.Ti', and wo nro never

over four miuuti'M iu getting out, whilo

every body knoM's tho y^a^en wo go at

when wo aro cneo ou the road.

Incendiary fires ? Well, I hardly

know what to P.iy about them, or iu fact

hardly what to think. There's soiuo of

tho insnraiuro people as make no bones

about saying that a good half of tho

fires aro caused on purpose, nnd there's

n good many of our men ns thinks tho

name, nnd I've certainly seen aomo very

suspiciouB eases myself, thongir I

couldn't havo pro%T'd any (hlng wrong.

I remember one firo that I wa.s at, was

tho third the namo man had in a few

yearn. In this uiio, two of hi.s ehildrcu

were burnt to death, and over each of

the fires there wn-: wliiKpering ami liend-

hhakiiig among HIOKO AVIIO knew him,

and talk about soino peoplu appearing

to be better oif after a ilre, and all that

sort of thing.

At any t'nto lie wont mad after thin

last fire, though of eoursu ho miuht

easily have done that after what had

hapjieucd, whether ho had a hand iu it

or not.

There in no knowing where a firo may

end H hen it has once st.u ted, or wlioue

lifo it may cut slicrt. Helting a houRc

on file ain't a hanging nnitler according

to law, btitsomeliuies when I've noticed

something queer about a fire, I've

thought to myself that it ou.r;ht tube.

There can bo no moral doubt that in­

nocent people have perished by ineen-

ib'ary firen, and I dare say that more than

(Mie tTood man ; nnd nil the

1) family becnmo so much attached

to him, that when tho owner relumed to

clnim his dog, tho children set up such

a dismal outcry, and their parents look­

himself,

Wli.it a splendid fellow ho wns I Ho

hnd his place nt tho tnblo with tlio

rest of tho family, nnd nobody belinvcd

with greater dignity aud decorum than

ho.

Sultan needed no chair. Seated up­

on tho floor, his hend cnmo up jnnt

where it ought to be at ttio table. Ha

was waited on with duo attention;

would have felt outraged indeed had

not cako and pie been oflTcred to him as

well as to tho others.

One day Sultan hurt himself and bo-

2ame very sick. His eyes gre'*' ns red

OS blood, nnd ho wns evidently in ago­

nies of pain. Mr. D—-, who in a very

nervous, timid man, fcharged everybody

to keep away from tho dog, ns ho was

likely to go mad.

Mrs, U immcdintely went out to

tho bnm, into which the poor benst hod

been fastened. Tho men serynnts ro-

sisted her entrance, rcpeatiug her hus­

band's orders.

"Out of tho way," said Mrs. D "I

mean io euro Sultan."

She sat down and watched him until

she had concluded what wns amiss,

then went to the doctor for medicine,

"Let the beast die," paid tho doctor;

"I dou't know what to do for him. Bo-

sides, I wish ho was dead. I'm afraid

of him."

"S(i and BO ails Sultan," persisted

Mi'R. 1) ; "do you give uio just tho

Iteing thus ill, and tell mo how to ut'O

ijho couqnrrcd, a-i is woman's way ;

and returning, mixed her medicine, nnd,

making the men hold Sultan, who, by

tliia time, was ton weuk to resist much,

she gave him his first dose. The sec­

ond dose be made no objection to. He

seemed to have come to an understand­

and tho poor fellow gratefully licked

Well, she onred him, as she bad said;

•ATVRDAT, JtJI.V aBlft. 'W-

TMRMoitAf-soF Joun?(Ai.is.n.

In the discnssions of jonmnliBm which

have been started by editorial convcn-

tioua and the ealnblisbmeut o£ ohnirB

of journaliBm in one or two ncadomio

institutionfl, it is well not to forgot tlio

mntter of morals. A great deal of in­

dignation has been meted out to those

proBSOs which publifih quack advertise­

ments, calculated to encourage vice and

crime. In this thing, a gnat is strained

at, tliat a camel may bo>wollowed; for,

almost without exception, the papcra

which denounce and vetnse to publish

these adTcrtisomenta, tiiko endless

imins to spread before their readers the

details of tlic crimes which the ndver-

tisemcnts are supposed to engender or

encourage. Murders, suicides, seduc-

tiona, adulteriofl,- burglaries, tbcftfl,

scandala—all disagreeable and disgrace­

ful things—detailed histories of events

which appeal to prurieut tastes and a

morbid desire for coarse and brutal

excitements—are not theEo the lending

material of a gi*eat multitude of our

daily papers? Wo may bo mistaken,

but wo behuvo tliat there is no depart­

ment of the world's news given with

Buoh exhauative particularity as that

which relates to vice and crime. If

this be doubted, lot the first ^paper at

hand be taken up, and the fact will,

we think, be determined as wo appre­

hend it. Wo know that in many papers

the remedial ogenciea of society-the

churches, schools, social conventions-*

private and organizud.chari ties—beg tor

Rpaco that is freely acooidod to the

record of a potty thief or on unfaithful

husband or wife. That which will

make a apicy paragraph is chosen before

that which will make a. healthy one.

Nor is this all. The crioiea which

are tlma spread |befaro the public for

its daily food ore ofttm treated like

anything but crimes. Some of our

y papers have a way of doing up their

columns of local crime as if it were all

a joke. The writer makes an ingenious

jest of every thing he is called upon to

notice. The poor women who are lost

to virtue and society, with hell witliin

them and before them, furuish grateful

themes for the reporter's careless pleas-

nntriea. Their arraignment, their trial,

their soutence, their appearance, their

words, are chrouiclod; in imfeeling

slang, with the intent to excite Inugh-

tor. Tliit which to a. good man or

woman is infinitely pathetic is mado to

api>ear a matter to bo laughed at, or to

be paasod over^ as of no account. A

case ot infidelity in the marriage rela­

tion, involving the destruction of the

peocQ of families, the disgiace of uhil-

dreu, Bud the irremediable shtmo of

the parties primarily conoernod, comes

to us labeled: "rich developmouts."

The higher tho life involved and the

purer tho reputation, tho "richer" tlio

"developments*' alwoy. A clergyman

is the best, next a lay member, and

then any man or woman who'may be in

a high social xxiaitiou. "Crime in high

life" is a particularly^ grateful dish for

those to servo up who cuter for tho

l>ruriont public. It is impossible not

to conclude that tho men who write

these items and articles delight iu them,

and that tho men who publish them re­

gard them only with relation to their

mercantile value. Wekuowof nothing

more heartless than the M-ay in which

criminals aud crime aro treated by a

portion of the daily x>rcss, aud nothing

more demoralizing to the public aud to

those who are guilty of trifling with

them under the lioenso of tho reporter's

pen. It is a bad, bad busiuess. It is

an evil which every paper claiming to

bo resiiuetahlu ought to cut up, root

and branch. Hu long as crime is treat­

ed lightly it is encouraged. Ho long,

too, us the edifying, iufurmiug, remedial

and jiurilying ageucie^ of tlie world aitt

subordinated in the public notice to

the records of vice aud crime, simply

because they are less startling or spicy,

it is nousouse to talk about quack ud-

vertisemeuts, uud a parade of mock

virtue which desurves both to be pitied

and laughed at.

Tlie daily pajter haa now become a

visitor in every family of ordinary iu-

ielligeuce. It has become the doily

food of children and youth all over our

country, aud it ought never to hold a

record which would naturally leave un

unwholesome effect upon their minds.

If crime is recorded, it should be re­

corded OS crime, uud with a ooutu:ieu-

tious exclusiou of all details that the

editor would exclude were he culled

upou to tell the story to his boy ui>uu

his knee, or to his grown-up daughter

sitting at his side. The way in which

uastiuesB aud beataliuess aie advenised

in erimiual reports is ubomiuabte* It

is not ueueusary,|it is uot on any account

desirable. A thousuud things of great­

er moment aud sweeter import pass

uunotioed by the press every day. The

apology that the press must be exacts

impartial, faithful, literal, etc, is u

shabby one. A press is ucver impar­

tial, when, by the predomiuauoe it

gives to crime in its reports, it conveys

the impression that critae is the most

important. It« xaoords do not hiuder

crime, do uot nourish virtue, do nut

odvauce iutelligeuee, do nut purify

youth, do uot build up the best

interests of society^ aud tho absorption

of the columns of the public press by it

is a stupendous moral uuisauoe that

ought to be abated.

We do uot expect tho press to be \xry

luuuh in advouue of the people, either

in morsJiiy or intelligeuce. It is quite

as much the outgrowth as the leader of

our oiviliEfttion, but it ou^t to be sii

"mpnaii"^' from the best Americui

spirit and culture uud not the worst.

We shall have, probably, so long as

crime exists, professional scavengers

vhu follow in its way to glean and gorge

its uucloiumeas. We have such now,

And a beastly brood who gleou after

them eveoi; but why a press eluiuiiug

to be reupeotablu should deem it its

Uuty to assist iu their dirty work sur-

Oar fftitli ia Uie integrity of Schuyler

• C!f4Fax has never been shoken. In spit©

ol the most persistent cfl'ortB in person­

al and political enemies to becloud| his

long and honorable rcconl, wo have

felt convinrjed that time would furnish

n complete vindication and that he

would bo aligned among the purest

patriots c f the country

it will l«) remembered that tho prin­

cipal point at issue was whether a

twelve 'hundred dollar check was paid

or not. Oaken Amos aworo positively

that V.r. Colfax received the cheek,

Mr. C'jlfax swore positively that ho did

not rr*ceivo it. Cashier Dillon was un­

der the impression that the money was

paid to Ames, and tho tcstimeny of Mr.

CoUax was*8U8toined;by other evidence.

Now Mr. Drew who was in Europe at

tho timo of tho investigation, comes for­

ward and stales, that ho was in Wash-

ington in conference with Mr. Ames, on

tho day the twelve liuudrnd dollar chock

was cashed. Ue saw aud examined tho

check; saw the money pahl into tho

hands oi JAmea, aud saw Ames pay it

over to another man who was not Mr.

Col tax.

Mr. Drew is well known as a geutlo-

mnn whoso veracity is entitled to full

credit. His statement is direct, and

bears evidence of being lentirely truth­

ful. It supports tho positive declara­

tion of Mr. Col tax himself, and taken

iu connection with other testimony,

seems entirely conclusive on this pointy

which was the main couut in the nidict

ment i>atched up against him-

One of the most prominent features

was the most remarkdolu performance

of Young America upon a minalure vio­

years old, assumed all the ease and airs

of on old profeasional aud executed

aume beautiful and difficult selectiuus

to many, as* toj how tho **»«lcTial was

obtained with which to mKke tho haFtti

aforesaid; but to mo it is no m;»atery

whatever, for as Ilingftre-l ntthe Br anch,

I became tho Columbus of many now

diseoveries, and nmong them, the /min-

fnl one that I had been the subject ^ of

especial esptonngo of a singular look­

ing spccimcu of humanity, voyagi ng

on tho Boa of life under the flag of

several nations, and wjien occasion do-

mandod, dropping them and buisting

his black silk neckerchief as a fitting

emblem of his occupation. ThoThoinan

Murphy described in my last, aud this

moft energetic individual occupied the

same straw featlier bed in tho liay loft,

the night following my sham interview

with the Pre!)idcnt, and that accounts

for the liicleal fluid in tho cocoa nut.

My elTorts to have an interview vith

the Prc'fident were rewarded with piie-

cesn, and without much circumlocution

either, for I very witcty refrained from

innliing any fuss or parado about my

presence or jirertcnts there, and simply

sent in my card endorsed "From the

Putnam County STAKDAKD,'* and that

proved nil snfticient- I found the great

General a vciy qniet and silent man* he

don't Bfty much, in fact I bclicTO hiui

to be a inau "more chinned ngainat

than chinnhig." in other words, ho

prefers nit other music to chin music,

and would much prefer to have peace

at any prioa providing it be an honor­

able one. 1 stated my ease with regard

to iho Post Ofllco aud the desire of

four fifths of the citizens of our place

to have it removed to the Town Hall.

"Hush" said tho President, placing his

flugor oil his lips, "wo are beset by

spies on every hapd, aud millions of

dollars are being spent us free as tho

water that runs just on account of

your post Office troubles in Brewster's.

I did purpose to call an estrn session

uf Congress to finish the matter up,

but I find on inquiry that many of the

Members have not quite used up their

back pay of last session, and another

big stake like the Brewster Post Office

would demoralise them altogether.'^ I

then proposed to Mr. Grant to accom­

pany mo tor a stroll on tho beach where

wo uould \w filonc, and have a fair view

on every side so that any intruder

might be detected at once; to this he

QHScnt^-'J, adding with evidences of a

timorous prppaution, "but if wo want

Milltown, July 17,1873.

MR. EnTToB:—I think that I can fnr-

nish P, N. with n correct solution of tho

problem published in your pnper of the

12lh. inst.

By looking at the problem, the first

Moint wo have is that (Kl isthedifTerouce

between the squares, denoting what

each man and his wile paid; we will now

take two numbers in n similar manner,

for instance, 24x12. 24 squared equals

57fl, 12 squared equals 144; we liavc

given 57G minus 144 equals 432, tho

dilTerenct! of tlie nqnares, which by in­

spection, (any we ai-o ignorant of tho

rnh> laid down in the books,) is ctnal to

86, tho sum of the two numbers. Multi­

plied by|12, tho dinerenco of tho two

numbers, therefore, in the first place we

Imve deduced this rnlo; tho difference

between the squares of two numbers, is

equal to the sum of the two numbei-s,

multiplied by their diflTercnee; therefore

(i3 is to bo resolved into two factors, one

the sum, tho other the diflitrcnco of two

numbers; the sum of the pigs that A

and his wife bought is cvidoully greater

than 23, because A himself bought 23

pigs more tlinii Q; now tho only factor

ol i>3 greater than 23, mus*. bo 03 itself,

and the other factor must bo 1; there­

fore, 6;l minus 1 divid id by 2 equals 31,

A's wifii's ^number of pigs; 03 plus 1,

divided by 2 equals 32, A's number of

pigs. Secondly, we will consider B.

Since he bought 11 pigHmoro|than P, he

and his wife must have bonglit more

than 11 pigs; the one facturof C3groat-

or than 11, excepting 63 which wo have

already disposed of is 21; then 21 plus 3

divided by 2 equals 12, B's number of

pign, and 21 minus 8, divided by 2

equals 9, B's wife's number of pigs.

Tliirdly wo will takeO; we have dispos­

ed of all the factots of 63 exocpt 7 and 9,

therefore 7 plus 9 divided by 2oqun' • 8,

C's number of pigs, and 9 minus 7, di­

vided by 2 equals 1, C's wife's number

of pigs. Now, to fiuui up, A had 32 and

his wife 31 pigs; B had 12 and his wife

0 pigs; C had 8 and his wife 1 pig; but

A had 23 pigs morn than Q, then (^ must

have had U2 minus )i\i or 0. pign. Since

B. Imd 11 pigs more than P, P. must

have had 12 miuus 11 or 1 xiig. But B's

wife had 9 pigs, then Q must bo B's

wife, C's wife had 1 jug, then P. must

bo C's wife and the only woman left

being B, sho must Iw A'B wife. You

must reniti^ber that 63 denotes tho dif-

fcwnco between the squares denoting

what each man and his wife paid.

FttED H. BAIINUU.

THE PuontEM—A. B. nud C. with their

wives, P, Q. and lb, went to the mnr-

ket to buy pigs; each man and each wo­

man bought na many i>iga as they gave

shillings lor each pig. A benight 23 pigs

more than Q. B. bought 11 more than

P. Also each man laid out 63 shillings

more tlian his wife. Which two persons

were man aud wife ? P. N

BVKOfSia.

A. bwight 32 pigs at 32 shillings each

1024 shillings. B. (A'fl wifcjbought31

pigs at 31 Bhillings each, 901 shillings.

B. bought 32 piga at 13 nhilHiigs each,

144 shillings. Q, (B's wife) bought

9 pigs ut 9 shillingH each, 81 shillings.

C buufrht 8 pigs Kt 8 shillings each,

01 ^h'.ltingH. P (C's wife) bonght 1 jiig

at 1 shilbng^',

Thf above solution is from Master

Fred Bannnii, a South Fast lad but

t-ixteen yuurs uf age, and who hulds

himself 111 roadinchs to give a clear

bulution to any problem that may bo

given ua. Mahter Barnum is probably

the best malliematiciau in this county,

and wo shall be pleased to have his

knowledge IVAU-A by other and more

difficult questioiiH,—£D,

Allviiipl at Kiilciac.

On the evening of Thursday lust, Mr.

Bi'uj. S. Iloag was found hanging by

the neck in the barn of Chas. Dibble, a

resident uf Favling. When found, life

was nejirly extinct, but the niiiemittiiig

attention of the Haniai-ilans ihcu and

thcro prchent. and the a»Klstanco uf a

passing physician, Benjuniin was nsus-

citated after about au hour's arduous

labor. Of tho eause of tho attempt ut

tt'jii-idc we are not^infoinied, but the

probabilities are that it grew out of an

uUercation which oecurod at a soeiuble

at the lioiiHo of Dibble, a short time

previous tu Benjamin's being found iu

the baru. Both were in liquor at the

time. Pionrer.

fr'vr uol WHlkiUf up Ntalr«t

One day recently a resiiectably dress­

ed man curried a well grown child,

luulllcd up iind a])pareijtly sick, into

French'u Uutel. He placed the child on

the stairs aud begun tu talk to it in a

very unkind, rough way. The attention

of the guests was attracted, and they

gathered around,- .JT"

"You are able to walk up stairs by

yourself," tho man said, "aud I won't

carry you.*'

"Oh, oh," tho ohild sobbed, "do

carry me up, please pa, do. Yuu know

ever siuco I was run uverby the car, and

lust buth uf my feet, I cau't walk up

Htairs aluue."

•'That's ail stuff," iiuswored thomarfl

"get up at unce ur I'll muko you,"

The poor child begun to sub worse

than before, uud the brutal mau gave it

a severe thump over the side of the

head. The child luuuuc-d piteously.

The iudignatiuu of tho bvbtauders was

excited, and one of them said to the man,

"Is that child yours V*

"What's that to you?" the man an­

swered, "I won't tell you."

"He'b—my—father," the child sobb­

ed, " uud—he—killed—my—mother—

just—OS—he's—agoing—4o—till—me."

The man doubled his fist and i^ade us

if he was going tu give the child a se­

vere blow. Oue uf the bystanders in-

tci'fered and said, "Say, if yuu dou't

atop this, I'll cull a policeman. 1 never

buw buch a brutal father iu all my life."

Tlic mau began tu fumble iu his

pockets, and tho child cried out, *'tuku

care, he's got a knife. He's going to

stick you."

Sure enough the muu pruJuoed u

knife aud o^HUiod it The crowd tdipp-

cd off, one by oue, except two.

*' Bring uu uflloer,'' one of the men

cried to a friend.

"if 1 am tu bo arrested," the man

said, "it ahull be lor sumcthing," uud

thereupon he plunged the knife into the

budy uf the child." The child shrieked,

" I'm muxdorod^ I'm muiderod," and u

crowd rushed to the spot. The man

quietly raised the child in his snuB, aud

rcmuviug his hut buid;

"Guutlemeu, this ohild is a wooden

child. I'm a vcutriloquisl, uud any

bttlc offering you muy be pluaaed to

make, will bu \-^y uoceptable.'*
