It did not take one minute to do this, and for
his horse to be off like a flash. At this the In
dian sprang up and whistled. Out ran a horse
on which the Indian jumped, and they
thundered after him.
Tie little cabin was quiet when the thunder of
hoofs was heard. Ernest's mother went to the
window and saw her son with an Indian in pur
suit. She tottered back to her bed and crawled
By that time the sound of hoofs had died
away in the distance.
The old lady crawled out from under the bed
and lay on it, then she began to think what
would she do it her only son got killed.
She would die, she would starve to death, and
then the man who came to see her every year
M ould find her dead on the bed.
He would bury her. Ohi What a dreadful

A judge was swearing a little boy as a wit
ness, he said, "My boy, do you understand the
nature of an oath?" (Now the judge was a
great golfer) The boy said, "Sure, yer honor,
don't I caddy for yer."
Why doe a sailor know there is a man in the

IIIE CRACKERS FOR XTIAg.
In Many Parts of the South Children
are Wot Happy Without Them.
" Firecrackers for Christmas ! " was
the somewhat unusual legend which
greeted the eye in the advertising col
umns of local papers recently, attract

round about and throughout many por
tions of the south, of using these noise
makers during the Holidays.
The practise is largely confined to
children and Christmas eve the time of
their use, the small Chinese make being
the favorite with a special desire to set
them oft in bunches.
Originally, no doubt, the idea came by
adaptation of the Chinese custom, for the
Orientals use crackers on festal occa
sions, much as the French use confetti
and serpentine tape.
