Such was the Terror.
A mile from the little town ho halted
his horse and braced his courage with
half a pint of whisk'. It was a lluid
which would have killed a dog; he
smacked his lips over it. He pulled
out his revolvers and saw that they
were loaded and in order. He drew his
bowie-knife from its sheath and tried
the keen edge.
He was going to capture the town and
This thick-necked human brute, this
swaggering, drunken, boasting, light

awe, shoot, slay and kill. The people
had never seen him; he would show him

heard of him; ho would see that they
remembered his namo and the data of
In the town men were at work on
the streets in shops. Women sat in
their doors or passed to and fro. From
the open windows of the school house
came the voices of the children as les
sons were recited. It was an hour of
"Yi! Yi! Yi! Shoot! Crack! Hang!"
The Terror had struck tho town. In
live minutes he had captured it. Two
men lay dead in front of the store an
other at the door of the blacksmith shop
two more were groaning with griev
"Whoop! waugh! Come out, yc
skulks! I'm the only and original Ter
ror! Hundreds imitate me no one
equals my style! Who owns this bloody
town? Whar hav ycr bghtin men hut
way? Whoop! lleven't ye got a wo
man in this town who can aim a gun?
Waugh! ye sot of babies!"
There was a woman. Her husband
was the first man shot, and her eyes
were upon him-as he fell. She did not
scream out nor faint away. Her face
turned whiter than chalk she gasped
for breath two or three times, and then
her teeth shut hard. Tho sewing fell
from her hand, and she rose up, walk
ed into the bedroom, and was back in a
moment with a rille. Kneeling down
at the window sbc pushed the barrel
over the sill, aimed straight at the Ter
ror's head, and pulled the trigger.
"Whoop! Waugh! They call me
the Terror! Come out and see me and
lie threw up his arms as tho rille
cracked, and lurched out of the saddle
to the ground, the bullet raking his
skull. Three or four men ran to him
at once, and finding that ho was wound
ed and stunned they tied him stout and
"Say, men," he called as his senses
came back, "what docs this mean!
Come, untie me! I was only in fun, you
know. I'm the best hearted fellow in
tho world; wouldn't harm a chick

It was the voice of the woman who
had fired tho shot, and she still hold the
rille in her hand. Twenty feet away
was tho lifeless body of her husband.
She did not even look at it.
"You don't mean it!"gasped tho Ter
ror. "You wouldn't murder me for my

of steel in it and her eyes had such a
stony, mcrciloss look that men retreat

With her own hands she placed the

PlayfXil Duties of a Journalist.
Tho following picture (the last half of
it, that is) of the light and pleasing sit
uation offered to a citv editor on a pro
vincial daily is not only graphic and
moving, but frigidly truthful, as tho
editor can attest, having been a mother
The genial editor of tho
has been in this city for two days try
ing to engage a city editor for his pa
per, u lie sole quaiiucaiion no requires
is sobriety. 1 hero was a time when ho
required brains, but that time is past.
Ho only looks for an editor who can
look upon tho cup that cheers and like
wise inebriates, and yet be in condition
to hustle for news and write it up when
he gets it. According to him, there is
something peculiarly intoxicating either
in employment on tho or in city
beer. For the last two years the
has been edited by a procession of in
ebriates passing through tho oflicc.
Man after man was tried with no suc
cess. no new man wouiil taKe noiu ai
noon, get his instructions and laj'of tho
land, and no more would be seen of him
until he camo in at 3 a. m. the next
day, gloriously oblivious of everything.
This is Mr. 's side of the question,
but a journalist who has just returned
from a short sojourn upon his paper
tells a different tale. Ho says that ho
landed there a fow months ago, and
was engaged as city editor. Ho asked
what time the staff reported for duty,
and found to his horror that ho was tho
staff, and that he was required to get
up each day tho bagatelle of something
like sixteen to twenty-four columns of
matter. "You will report," said Mr.
, "at 7.30 to-morrow morning.
The Amalgamated Society of Raggagc-
Smashers holds its annual convention.
It will last till noon. Cut it short.
Don't make more than three columns
of it. At noon the Methodist ministers
hold a meeting in the First Methodist
church. Do 'em up in about a column.
You know how to do board of trade and
the markets, of course tho usual
amount. Then at !5 o clock tako a run
around tho hotels, and bring in acotiplo
of columns of interviews and I ho per
sonals. There's a meeting of mer
chants at 's Opera House at fi, and
the police stations and hospitals will
have to be covered. Dash off a column
of pungent editorial squibs for tho
fourth page, and drop into the theatres
at night. When you get back at 11
o'clock you can set up tho markets and
read proof till press time. Tako a hand
:it the press and mako yourself useful
folding papers. Tho circulator will give
you a route to deliver in tho river dis
trict. That will keep you busy till 7."
"Rut," said the new editor, "I won't
have anything to do for a whole half-
"Lemme see," said tho proprietor.
"That's so. Well, you can wash rollers
during that time," Chicugo News.
Lesson of a Dream.
John Wesley was once troubled in re
gard to the disposition of the various
sects, and tho chances of each in refer
ence to future happiness or punishment.
A dream, ono night, transported him, in
its uncertain wanderings, to tho gates of
"Aro there any Roman Catholics
here?" asked tho thoughtful Wesley.
"Yes," was the reply.
"Any Episcopalians?" "Yes."
"Any Presbyterians?" "Yes."
"Any Congregationalists?" "Yes,"
again was the answer.
"Any Raptists?" "Yes."
"Any Methodists?" by way of a
clincher, asked tho pious Wesley.
"Yes," to his groat indignation, was an
swered. In tho mystic way of dreams, a sud
den transition and ho stood boforo tho
gates of heaven. Improving his oppor
tunity, ho again inquired:
"Aro lliero any Roman Catholics
hero?" "No," was replied.
"Any Episcopalians?" "No."
"Any Presbyterians?" "No."
"Any Congregationalists?" "No."
"Any RaptihU?" "No."
"Any Methodists?" "No."
"Well then," ho asked, lost in won
der, "who aro thoy inside?!' "Clirii
('aw.'" was tho jubilant answer. -lecttd.
"Why don't j-ou try tho cold water
euro for your rheumatism?"
"Cowld wathor, is it? Arrah, man,
