THE BOYLESS TOWN.
A cross old woman of long ago
Declared that she hated noise;
The town would be so pleasant, you
know, ' ' ..
If only there were no boys." .
She scolded and fretted about it till
Her eyes grew heavy as lead,-
And then of a sudden the town (frew still,
For all the boys had fled.
And all through the long and dusty street
There wasn't a boy in view;
The baseball lot, where they used to meet,
Was a sight to make one blue. .
The grass was growing on every' base
And the paths that the runners inn do,
For there wasn't a soul in all the place
Who knew how the same was played.
The dogs were sleeping the livelong day;
Why should they bark or leap?
There wasn't a whistle or call to play,
And so they could only sleep. ' ' J
The pony neighed from his lonely stall,
And longed for saddle and rein;
And even the birds on the garden wall
Chirped only a dull refrain. ,
The cherries rotted and went to waste;
There was no one to climb the trees;
And nobody had a single taste,
Save only the birds and bees.
There wasn't a messenger boy not one.
To speed as such messengers can;
If people wanted their errands done
They sent for a messenger man. ..
There was little, I ween, of frolic and
There was lesa of cheer and mirth;
The sad old town, since it lacked its boys,
Was the dreariest place on earth.
The poor old woman began to weep.
Then awoke with a sudden scream;
Dear me!" she cried, "I have been asleep;
And oh! what a dreadful dream!"

UKE CARLTON paced restless-
back and forth on the plat
form at the station of D . He
was a man 20 years of age, upon whom
Nature had certainly lavished an undue
amount of good looks, but whose face
was marred at present by a look of
contempt for everything upon which
his glance might chance to falL And
lt was scarcely to be wondered at, for
In Just nine hours, as time was- told by
the large, slowly ticking clock In the
waiting room at the depot, Duke Carl
ton was to be married- And here he
was forty miles from his destination,
and had Just been told by the station
agent that the trains had changed time,
his train having left at precisely twen
ty minutes before his arrival, and there
would not be another be-fore 8 that
evening. Eight the hour set for his
marriage with sweet Lulai Houghton.
What would she, could she-, think?
What a position to put her Inl Already
he Imagined the crowded church, the
sea of eager faces, the- waiting bride,
and no Duke. He must reach -the city
of e In time for the ceremony; but
Presently he walked back to the little
ticket office where the agent was la
"Do you know If there Is any sort of
conveyance around here that I could
got to take me to the next village? I
would pay well for one, as lt Is Impera
tive that I should reach E before
The agent calmly finished the sen
tence he was writing, pushed the cap
he was wearing on the back of his head
etyi farther back, and having thought
fully chewed the end of his pen for
about half a minute, replied:
"I dunno. You might be able to git
old Harmon's horse and buggy If 'taln't
let He keeps the tavern 'bout a stone's
throw from here, an sometimes lets
his horse; but he wants a tarnation
price. You can try him, though; that's
his chimney you see Jest over the yeller
house there." And he rose lazily and
pointed vaguely down the street, where
a number of small houses were visible,
among which the yellow one stood out
distinctly, having been recently built
and Just received Its coat of priming.,
Duke walked rapidly from the depot
and hastened In the direction of the
"tavern," keeping the chimney In view
as a gaurd against mistake, and soon
found himself before a dirty, Ill-kept,
Hi-looking place, from which an odor
of boiled cabbage and onions was now
Issuing. To his loud and twice-repeat
ed knocking the door was finally open
ed by an uutldy specimen of woman
kind from which he would at any other
time have recoiled In disgust; but his
necessity was urgent, so, stepping for
ward, he raised his hat and courteously
asked If he might see the proprietor.
After a prolonged stare, as If men
tally digesting the word, she answered
with a half grunt:
"Ain't t home, but I'm 'la wife, nd
we ain't no secrets. What du you
Duke smiled In splto of his perplex
ity before he replied: .
"I merely came to see If I could en
gage some one to take me over to the
village east of here. I must reach E
to-ulght; I believe I can get a carriage
"There ain't no horse to hum," she
said, "but Abe would take you over In
the mornlu'. Do you want lodgln' fur
the night?" she added, an eager look
taking the place of the previous vacant
"No, thank you," said Duke; "If I
cannot find a vehicle ot some descrip
tion, I suppose I must walk, for I must
certainly get there to-night. Can you
toll me about how far lr is to the next
village, and which Is the nearest way
"It's four mile and a half by the rail
road, an' nigh onto seven If you take
the road," was the surly answer, as she
aw that there wag not even a remote
chance of "Abe's" making something
In the morning. "But 'taln't many aa
likes to go by the railway, on 'count of
the narrer tunnel, though It's a deal
"Thanks. Then If I take to the track
here and go straight ahead I shall come
out at the village at the end of about
A nod was his answer, followed as h
turned away by the words:
. "Four an' a half,. I said."
So Duke started to walk the four and
a half miles, concluding he must take
the shortest way he could, as he had not
a superabundance of time; there might
l)e some little delay even after he arriv
ed at the village. So he began his Jour
ney at once, without even stopping for
He had passed the third-mile post
when he reached the tunnel.
"Ah!" he said aloud. "Here Is the
tunnel of which she warned me. I won
der how long it Is? What a dunce I was
not to ask! It does look like a ticklish
place, that's a fact small, one-track
affair. I don't half like the Idea of go
ing through lt Wonder If I'd have
made lt if I'd taken the road? Well,. It'
too late now I'm In for lt!"
He had groped along for about a
quarter of a mile, feeling his way care
fully by the wall. Not a thought of any
actual danger bad entered his head
so full of his fair bride-to-be until sud
denly a dull rumble struck his earSj
and caused him to wonder whence the
sound proceeded. Another Instant and
there flashed across his brain the horri
ble reality, A train was coming, from
which dlrectloa h could not tell, but
certainly coming, and If .the tunnel
proved much longer the fact was un
deniable that he should be crushed be
neath the Iron monster there alone In
the darkness-, and no one would know
his fate, ne listened laying his ear to
the rail; it was coming ift the rear. He
quickened his steps he ran ran as
rapidly as he dared, for fear of a mis
step which would hinder Instead of ad
vance his ends-.
Now the roar comes nearer; be can'
Imagine the train as lt Is- tearing along,
carrying death to hint He thinks each
individual hair is- standing on end. The
sweat pours down, his- face, and still
this darkness, still this- louder roar of
the engine as lt comes- steadily nearer
and nearer, and his strength l nearly
At last a gleam of light greets him
at the farther end of the tunnel. O,
what hope lt Inspires!! He thinks of
the races he has won' at college, and
determines to take a fresh start Yes,
he will run as It running a race, and
forget the huge monster behind him
which seems to paralyze his limbs and
prevent all motion;, he win run, run-
he nust win how, terrible the result If
he does not! He thinks of Lula, his
sweetheart hia- wife- that was to have
been. Shall he ever-see her again?
The light ahead grows more and
more distinct, but his strength Is going,
and the train behind is rushing on fast;
lt seems quite close now, he ean almost
feel its breath- upon him; still he runs.
Another moment and he will have
gained or lost which.?: He must riake
that, short space!: What a thing It is,
this being face to face with death! He
cannot hold; out much longer; he feels
he must lose and what then? But no
he will, make- one more effort He
clears the tunnel, leaps from the track,
and falls, headlong down the bank on
the side, saved but unconscious, while
the heavily loaded freight train passes
But the engineer had seen him Jump,
and not being able to ascertain wheth
er he had been struck by the cow
catcher or not stopped the train and
went back In search, of him; and when
Duke Carlton regained consciousness
he was lying on a seat In the depot In
the village for which he had started
some hours before.
He was not seriously Injured. His
fall had but stunned him, and In an
hour he was quite ready to proceed on
his Journey, a little pale, lt Is true, and
shaky In the lower extremities, but
otherwise rejoicing that he had suc
ceeded In his quest and would be In
time for his wedding, with thirty min
utes to spare.
Duke Carlton does not believe in the
theory that a person's hair turns white
In a night from sudden fright or sor
row, for his own raven locks show not
a trace of silver; and surely no one ever
had a more terrible fright or a narrow
er escape than did he on his wedding:
day, when he ran a race for his bride.

Bullet Now Made of Paper.
There used to be a saying In the old
dueling days of a generation past that
every bullet has Its billet Now, If we
may believe a statement In Der MM
tararzi, -the time has arrived when a
billet even a billet-doux, may be coa
verted Into a bullet. The Journal states
that a French army surgeon has In
vented a bullet made of compressed pa
per, covered by a thin sheet of highly
polished aluminum. The new bullet
It Is claimed, Is less expensive than
those In use; It makes equally as good
targets at any range, and the wound
made by lt Is, surgically, clean, healing
with far greater ease than wounds
made by auy of the missiles now In use,
Thus, while the number of wounded
may be no less, the labor of surgeons
will be lightened by the absence of sep
tic conditions. Invention.
