Why He Threw Stone at tha Church.
A gaunt man, with yellowish
beaad and hair thatjj looked like
hackled ilax, stood throwing
stones at a log meeting-house.
He seemed to be aiming his
missies at a small window, the
only one that lighted the house,
and had just thrown with en
couraging directries, a fragment
o flint, when.aiA "riding a
Tiorse drew rein and demanded
the cause of the bombardment.
"You jest jog along, now, and
let me 'tend to this, will you?"
"But why are you throwing
at the church?"
"Goon now, I tell you. This

The fact that this is a very
big country never strikes one so
forcibly as when he has traveled
2,000 miles due West and still
iinds the prairie stretching out
before him. A young sprig of
British nobility was over here
last, summer, accompanied by
the inevitable "Jeems." They
saw the seaboard cities, tarried
for a time in Tittsburp, in Chi-eao-o,
in St. Louis and in Kansas
city, and then struck out into
the M'eat West. Somewhere
near the edge of Colorado the
train was delayed at a small sta
tion, and the passengers got out
to stretch their legs, among
them his lordship and "Jeems,"
who seemed in a brown study.
"What is it?" asked his mas
ter. "I va3 just thinkin', me
hid," said Jeemcs, "that Colum
bus didn't do such a mighty big
thing when ?e discovered this
'ere country, hafter hall's ssid
and done. " 'Ow could 5e 'elp
it? It certainly something of an
obsticle in the way of navigation."
The Bad Boy's Plan to Lick the
Teacher Didn't seem to Work.
"Jos' a minute, if you please,"
said a man in "Western Nebras

and hailed us as we

school house much when you
came past it down here a mile
and see anything of a big, raw

b'igiiantls, ' V5arin' U ' High felt

"Yes; we noticed him."

ground near the school-house
with his back against a tree.
II is nose was all bloody, his
arms were hanging down and he
looked sick. His clothes were
about half torn oif of him, and
one of the small boys were carry
ing his striped hat full of water
to him from the creek."
"Weil, I sw'ar if that don't
beat me! Didn't holler no
slang at you or offer to fight
"I don't think iic saw us at all

"I expect nothin' s'prises me

"What was it?"
"W-y, that feller's my boy,
you see, an' he 'lowed to lick
that teacher this mornin' but I
reckon from what you say sonie
thim went wrong somewhere.
The teacner give him a longer
'rithmetic lesson than he cr:er,
an' says I to him, 'Hop onto the
little doo 1 an' whale him jis
show him that you understand
wliats the matter o' Hanner!
Bill said he'd do it, an' that I'd
better see the other two school
oft-cers an' git another teacher
somewhere, 'cause there wouldn't
be enough o' this un left to wad
a gun with when he got through
with him. He says 'Rap don't
