Ile eanir up on No. ti on her liisl trip. We used to tuei t often up ami down llie i-.iad ami yot to know etirh cither pretty well. I!r was one of these lads wi:h a fr. sh. pink and white eom plexioti and a jolly lmish that made yoil warm up to him at ome. lie was rtralht and siroiiu', ami ulirtt lie usnl to .-:aml jauntily mi top of the ear. the train Kniiitf forty miles an hour and lie not .srrmins to think it was moving nt ali, tinir wan"t a Kirl .ilotn; 1 1 1 road that hadn't a smiie for him as he vent by. The I. id u.i.i anxious to stick nnd worked hard, and, as he kept hit mouth shut pretty rinse, it was a Ion;; time before we found out anything nhout who he was. lie had little., ways lib ult him that made us think once in a while that he hadn't been broU;ht up to work, ami Ids hands at lirst were lis soft nnd while as a Kill's. Hue c I' the IVHiiws told us a story of Imw Johnny belonged to a piod family, but tut kicked out for some reason or cither, but we always thought he made It up, and, iu fact, we never did Iiml nut his story tuiiil that i'U!it. I mean the iiiht we took li tin lioine." doe slopped, pulled vigorously at his pipe for a few minutes, blinked rather nusplcioiisly several times, and dually the ratlirr husky voii'e went on: "It seems that the .nls name wasn't II. lines at all. lie took thai to con. real his own. Ills first name really was .lohiiny, though, ami. as that t as w hat everybody oiun! him. the l.i.: ili lu't serin to make so iiiueli dif fcreitce. When he tirst eauie on the road lie was a little past Ho, and his epen, boyish ways made some of the fellows jiuy him and wai t to play tilrk on him at tirst. Hut it didn't t.lko them Ioiik to Iiml out that he had plenty of nietile.

It getius lliyy had tjome troukle down the road, nml when 'Hill' had offered to liht. ilohnny had ru fu.sctl. lie trhld to keep out nf Hill's way, but when 'HUP said lie was afraid. Johnny turned and walked Knuarely up to him ami said quietly: 'Yon take that back,' I never knew Just how It uai done, but "HHP mailt' noiue bolt nf a feint, and the next tnniiieiit the bl, hulking lubber was lyins on the ground. JlilP didn't wem to know What hit hliu. Hut lie went nt Johnny with Htuh a Ravage look that u lad without genuine pluck would have turned feather. iHit when 'Hill' lay sprawling on ihe Kriuiiui a second time we found out that Johnny was a sel entitU' boxer. There was uti ui;ly Kleaui hi 'HHPs' eye when he ot lip, nnd in) he (,'ot close up to Johnny till of a Mid den he nourished a bin Jaekknife hi1 always carried. How he pit It out of his pocket I never could tell. He made a Inline, but Johnny dndp-d clev erly mid the knife Just .Taxed his face. lie was on HUP quicker than It taks to tell It. choklnj; the life out of him. We started to separate them, hut when we found that Johnny had 'HHP so that he could not do any ilamase with the knife we lot them tliiht It out. 'HHP dually held up his hand for mercy and then Johnny let him up. After wo pit them cooled off Johnny made 'Hill shake hands, nnd. tlioii'ii he didn't show It then, I think afterward T,!P came to think as much of him as the rest of us. "I'p thi road lmt very far from Al bany there Is a pretty Utile farm that runs down to the river, and riclit at the corner of It was a water l. ink. It happened that on this farm there was a dark eyed little girl who was the Idol of all the boys :;lon the road. She wouldn't liirt with us. Ir.it she used often to come down to the wnier tank and p-t little packap-s which the engineer, who wa a friend of the family, used to brltiK' down from Al bany. She was plump and peachy, with dark eyebrows and Ion-; lashes, and under them ilie prettiest pair of eyes I ever saw. There wasn't one of id who wouldn't have married her quirk If she'd had us. Hut she was sort o' reserved and shy and none of its had nerve ciioiili t" make love to her. Ail except Jul y. All the uirls smiled n Johnny and he smiled on them. He didn't have to see tin: lass twice before he was head over heels ill love with her and it wasn't very Ion.'; bcfoie he made her know all .ib. nit li. To woo was to win with Johnny, and ree.iil.ir as his train pass ed the farm Jenny that was tin little dame's name was always there to n. eel. hint. Wo used to chali Johnny a punt deal over the I'latter, but we couldn't p'l 1 1 1 1 1 1 -1 out of him. Somr how, ihroiich tin niiiitirrr or some body, tiioiiKh. we f d out that John ny was pilnif in many the Kill if he ri. uid p'l his father m coiwrni. lie c.-.i.'ldu'l very well Many on the sal ary l was Ki'iiiii,' a. a raw bral.e mau.

At last we found out tii.it .l.ilinuy had hr.-u promisnl a rais". and tliat aloiu- ab-mt t lit- holi days hr was in ho made a pivinip'r braUcman. and then he was iluinr- to ijft married. There wasn't one of vis mat w.asu t clad ol , or who cini. J him his piod lurk. The fall stretched way into the winter. I rnm-tnbrr, mid my. wasn't it brautifiil weather: Voii'd stand up mi top of a car. and as the train wound alotii; the river snore mile after mile, just di'lukiiii: iu the air and view, lliakiiu is a hard life, with lots of d.itipT and pretty slim pay. Hut ihoe days we'd forp't all about the hardships and everytliiny else. Johnny was on the same Haiti with me .and happy as a lark, lliinkiim how lie would marry and uo up to Albany M live. I Used to notice, til. mull, that every once iu a w Idle his brow would cloud up. as if he was thinking of something t'l.it hurl him. "Such weather cuiildti'l last. Ihuiiu'h, ami when the ci.d came. It came with a !iiiall. 'I'he thermometer dropped forty decrees, and a mid. driving rain tliat had set In In the al'lcruoon turned toward nlpht into a dril'tin;, blindim; snow. We had a b!' train that nlpM. and with the snow and the sleet find the cold It nave us no end of trouble. She parted three or four times piitiK not more than twenty miles, and it was cold, danp'rous work slipping ahum the top senilis brakes or p'ltini; down to make eotiplinps. Tin wind howled ami whistled and the snow cut your face like pil:m tliiuitp'i a hedp'. It was dark and the lanterns didn't show plain throuph the snow, and every thing seemed to p wroiitf. Several times we thoiipht wo were stalled In the drifts, but we'd uncouple and send the engine and two or three curs through the drift, and then back up and take the rest of the train tlirotiph. We wanted to p't thrnupli to Albany, for the next day was a lay off, ami two days after that came Christinas. 'Johnny and I fought like heavers npiinst the cold, and. I tell you. It was ticklish work. I felt more anxious about Johnny tiViu I did about myself. fr I was old at the business and he was new. and i know how easy it was for a sudden Jerk to send a man llyiru down between t lit wheels, lint John ny wouldn't listen. Ile said he wasn't afraid, and just then the whistle sound ed 'down brakes." We were slltim; Id the caboose, shivering around a dirty little lire. I had frozen three of my lingers, and I thought my ears were frosted, ton. You see the stnliil came so sudden we didn't have time to get on any mutlb rs, nml the mitu'iis were pretty t'liii. "Well, we climbed out, and Johnny ran o:i ahead, saving that he was all right and he'd take the front. The ears on top were as slippery as glass, and we hid almost to creep ah f from one car lo another to keep fr.Vr Ail- J inj? off, for alio wan rumiluc at n Food' pace, and the snow on the tracks inttdo thu cats lurch and swlnjr. 1 looked up uini through the t.itnw mid the dark 1 recognized the landmark, and knew Wt were Hearing the water tank, where Johnny's girl lived. Just ut that mo mem the train gave a frightful Jerk nnd I saw the engine go rearing in ill j", and nhout a hundred feet ahead I saw a lantern swing wildly In the ulr and go duwu. I went flat on liic car and hung Micro for dear life. We stopped In ten or twenty yards ami I swung orf the car like mad. 'tireat (rid,' I thought, 'if that was .Johnny!' "Something made lue feel that ho had gone under tin; wheels, and when I crawled ulieail ft few ems there I found him, lying all white and still. Ho wan to.) much stunned to say a word. We picked him tip and started to carry him to the house where Jen ny lived. I saw that the wheels had gone over both legs- over one near til? thigh and the other below the knee. -My, hut he was a game lad. for all the torture of carrying him up the hill couldn't wring a word from hlni. We knocked at the door and said one of tiie buys hud got hurt that the engine had juniM'd the track. A white lltth; f;ice came to the dour nnd looked at us :t moment, ami then as smm as she saw lue and my face Jenny shrieked out, 'It's Johnny!' Hut she didn't faint or cry, nor say another word. We just carried him iu and put him on the lied and she tool; charge of iiim. One of the boys' rode over I get a doctor, but when lie came he saw at once that It was no use. It w.is only u question of how long Johnny couid survive the shock. He lay there very quietly, and finally when the doctor's examination was Ilnished. he .s.iid: "Is there any show, old man':" "I couldn't reply, lmt he knew as I turned my head away what the .an swer was. Johnny was quiet for a moment, and then pulling Jenny's hand Willi id own weakly, lie said In a husky voice: 'Utile girl, I want to go home.' And (lull he ilisisied an all lie rest of the nigh:. We didn't thin!; that he'd be ulive by morning. Hut he :i s, and we decided to put him on board the morning express. Tin wreck ing train had thr. nn the engine out of the road and cleared !h-' track, and when tin' express came down we llagged her and took Johnny aboard. All Jenny would tell us was that his father lived In New York. Hut sin' 1'tive the conductor an address for a wire. "We didn't think that he would iast the journey, and iihoai half way l"Wti he suddenly cilltriird Jenny's iwud liai'.l and lli-n lay bad; sidl. The little girl threw herself upon him sl bing its if her heart would lire.ik, but it didn't do any good. 1'oor Johnny was gone." Joe i.i tis:'. I a moment nml looked into the lire.

He soon saw that the deer was making Letter time than he was, but. iu die Language of yachtsmen, if he could not oiitfisit the animal, he had some chance of "oiit poiniing" it. So he rowed across the course of the deer, forcing the creature to wucr. Thell lie towed so as to cut eff the new course: and after a while, by hr.-nling liisl one way and thru aiu'ihrr, lie came alongside the f riiitetied i rent lire, and witli a quick movement seir.cl It by the tall. Thoroughly frightened, the animal swam faster than ever, and made straight for the shore. Koyee got into the bow of Ids boat and held fast to the tall; he was drawn through the water much faster than he could have rowtsl. Meantime his pursuit of the deer had attracted the attention of Mr. J. A. (recti on tin' shore. Mr. (ireen got a rille and came out iu another boat lo meet t Ii.-lii. Coming quite near he tired at till' deer and killed II. eliding llie spirited chase. It turned out to be a very large and tine buck. Wild oats cost as much as ever. In sp'te of the fact tliat evcrj thing else lias been greatly reduced In price. PLAYING THE IMA NO. NEW AND IN TEf-iESTING THEORY IS ADVANCED.
