We were engaged In n football
match on tho green Inside Windsor
cavalry barracks, and the verandas
were crowded with onlookers as the
colonel, dressed for London In frock
coat nnd tall hat, with n clgnr In his
mouth, came out of tho olllccrs' quar
ters nnd proceeded slowly across a
corner of the ground, apparently ob
livious of tho fact that a mulch was In
progress at the time. At this moment
our fullback, n gigantic Yorkshlreinaii
named Hales, who must have weighed
nearer llfteen than fourteen stone,
charging Impi'liioiiily for tho ball,
dashed full Into lluruaby. Tho Impact

though he had collided with n moun

Iturnaby's hat nor tint nnglo of his
clgnr was In the smallest degree dis
turbed. In fuel, he scarcely seemed
to ronllxc that n collision had taken
place. When ho did so ho removed his
cigar from his mouth anil, with his
pleasant smile, said, "Dear me, I do
hope I nui not Interfering with the
game." The shout of delight which
went up from the verandas was n
thing to remember.

CAUGHT THE BISHOP.
One 8urprlse That Wat the Forerun
ner of Another.
That wns n good old comedy bishop
who one fine day entered n large Jev
elcr's establishment In Hegent street
London, to make nn extensive purchaso
of valuable presents. He selected
thBm with great care ns regards their
nrtlstlc value, but tpilte regardless of
cost. Tho proprietor nnd his assist
nnts buzzed round hls lordship. Tho
selected valuables wcro packed In sep
arato parcels ot his suggestion, neatly
tied nnd sealed, nnd he lind Just taken
n scat In tho private olllco of tlio pro
prletor and was feeling In his pocket
for his check book when two men, who
had been peering In at tho glass door
leading to tlio street, walked up tlio
shop and stood behind tho bishop,
They were plolnly dressed, sharp look
lug men and thus bluntly addressed
"Whnt has this man been ordering?'
The bishop looked up, saw tho men
turned pale, clutched the sides of tho
chair, dropped his glasses and looked
as If ho would bolt. Heforo ho could
stir, however, the handcuffs were on
"Hlshon. Indecdl" said ono of tho
men. "lie wns n colonel yesterday,
Hero, 'bishop,' come nlong to Vino
street. 'Illation.' Indeed! I In, ha!
Well, that's a good 'unt" And, turn
tug to the nstonlshed Jeweler, ho con
tlnucd: "Just copped him In time, sir
lucky for you. Oh, by tho wny, you
might get ono of your nsslstnnts to
bring round theso parcels ho Iibh bo

through tho window, "ploco thoso In

A careful inspection of each article 'is invited. When
these are disposed of 110 more shall be ordered, as the
jewelry business is not in our line.
