"Indeed, I hardly know how one lives

of my noighliors, but I confess it, my
friends, 1 have been frightened by the

"Of the weatherf" asked Emil.
"I cannot seo that," said Jules.

Theewant had enjoyed hissoup, and
'truly his innguo talked of itself.
"In Tonquin," said he, rising to his
feet (for so ono gestures moro easily),
"the lightest of our thunder cracks can

another so fast that thero is nover but

tjnouth open, his spoon in tho air.
"And tho lightning?" asked Jean,
"Tho lightning?" repeated tho ser
geant, "much tho same sort. It is nover

puts on green spectacles ono or two
"A curious custom!" remarked Emil,
.looking sidowlso at the veteran.
"As you say curious indeed," replied
"tho sergeant, smiling "You would en
joy tho oddity of it. I havo little doubt.
But thero is something moro worthy of
notice. Thero is tho rain. In Tonquin
tho rain falls so fast that it doesn't reach

"My won!, but I havo heard things as
strange!" said Gaston, dryly.
"Then tuy stories do not surprlso you?"
asked tho soldier, with somo disappoint
ment, "Why should they?" replied Gaston.
"I have never been in Tonquin, I havo
heard of queerer things, howovor; yoa,
and in this very town!"
"Such as?'' Kitd tho sergeant, look
Ing hard til tho other aud twisting his
mustache ends into two needle points.
"Somo people would say your Tonquin

frankly. "Hut 1 am not so foolish.
Freely 1 admit that such storms arc raro
in this village. Hut 1 do contend that
wo havo hero tho smallest storms that

Tho sergeant moved uneasily on his

Well, ono morning, that soldier"
"Sailor!" said llio sergeant, frowning.
"Bailor, of courwi that sailor camo to

"Truly so." said the sorgent, uneasily
"And. strangely enough," went on the
villager, "there is a legend that such
Etorms are the work of goblins, who thus

this sailor must have been!"
The sergeant made no comment, but
drummed a quickstep iijwn tho table,
whittling a noiseless life accompaniment
Emil. Jules and Jean had been listen
ing open mouthed and ransacking their
brains to (bid some trace of this wonder
ful legend. Hut no one of them could
recall it, and, while they wern collecting
their wits to question Gaston, tho ser
"Where was it you said this sailor

is it not?"
"That is where they havo put mo," re
plied tho veteran. Then rising, ho shook
hands nil round, saying: "Good night,
my lads, good night. Remarkable place,
"Uemarkable. indeed!" they answered.
No sooner was their guest out of sight
thun the others turned to Gaston, who
was laughing to himself at their wonder
After a short explanation, during
which tho four heads were very close to
gether, Jules went in ono direction for a
dark lantern, Gaston set forth in another
to borrow a drum, Jean went in a third
for tho big watering pot. while Emil was
to llll a basket with sand and gravel
When they came back, later in tho even
ing, each had succeeded In his errand.
"Wo will givo the sergeant a goblin
thunder storm," Gaston said, with a
smilo. Then nil four laughed aloud
They were sharp fellows, and thoy com
prehended his plan
Although tho moon shone brightly
that night tho conspirators set forth for
tho inn, walking in a single file, and
grinning with anticipation.
About midnight they were in front of
tho window of tho "front room on the
left." Emil threw tho sand against the
panes, Gaston beat a terrible roll upon
tho drum, and Jules (lashed tho light of
his lantern through tho window, while
Jean spattered water upon tho glass.
Tho sergeant arose, camo to tho win
dow and gazed curiously out. Ap
parently there was bright moonlight and
a cloudless sky: hut ho had seen the
lightning, heard tho thunder, and surely
thoso were drops of rain upon tho panes
of tho window.
Tho four mischief makers had crouched
closely ugaiust tho wall, aud with difll
cultv restrained themselves from noisy
Tho steps retreated from tho window.
After waiting a moment smother 'Gob
lin Storm" was created, and brought the
puzzled man again to tho window; but
so closely llultened against the inn were
tho four friends that thero was no clew
to tho mystery, and the sergeant onco
moro retired, too sleepy to inako any
further Investigation that night.
A third repetition of their trick brought
their victim running In tho door as they
Being ready for him, Jean deluged the
poor sergeant with water, Gaston deaf
ened him with tho drum. Jules blinded
his eyes with the lantern, while Emil
pelted him with the gravel, and ho stag
gered back indoors with his hands over
ins eyes :md Ins breath almost gone.
Next day the sergeant asked tho land
lord at breakfast time whether tho ter
rible storm had not kept him nwsiko.
Tho landlord stared at him in silence
for a moment, aud then said:
"Sergeant, are you crazy?"
"Landlord, what do you menu?" re
plied the soldier with much dignity, ris
ing to his feet.
"it was si calm, bright moonlight night,
as suiy ono will tell you. Why do you
ask such st foolish question? To snako me
"it was but li poor joke, wasn't it, mine
host?" said tho sergeant, with a twist at
his big mustaches while his cheeks grow
very reil. "l'ray say nothing about it,
and 1 will promise not to repeat so ill
timed a pleasantry," and awny ho
marched, very erect aud very proud in
deed. Strangely enough, not only did the
sergeant seek uo explanation of Ids re
markable experience at tho inn, but oven
his wonderful adventures in Tonquin
woro no more recalled

Most children seem to havo a natural
desire to cultivate flowers and havo somo
of their own, and if this propensity was
duly encouraged it would become a per
manent trait of their characters. It
would make them observing and famil
iar with tho laws of nature. To know
tho names of the different flowers and
plants of one's country and tho wondrous
processes of their growth is almost equiv
alent to si liberal education. Such kuowl
edgo enlarges tho mind and softens aud
refines tho nature, and therefore wo
should allow our children, boys and
girls alike, to havo their littlo flower
beds in pleasant and well prepared
places instead of in out of tho way spots,
as is usually the ca.ie. If our boys wore
taught to lovo and cultivate flowers thoy
would not when they become husbands,
us husbands now sometimes do, begrudge
their wives Hufllciout land for a decent
flower garden. Mrs. Burton W. Potter

Here is au incident from the South
Mississippi, written in April, 1890,
just after the Grippe had visited that
country. "lam a fanner, one of
those who have to rise early aud
work late. At the beginning of last
Winter I was on 11 trip to the City
of Vickshurg, Miss., where I got well
drenched in a shower of rain. I
went home and was soon after seized
with a dry, hacking cough. This
grew worse every day, until I had
to seek relief. 1 consulted Dr. Dixou
who has since died, and he told me
to get a bottle of Boschee's German
Syrup. Meantime my cough grew
worse aud worse and then the Grippe
came along aud I caught that also
very severely. My condition then
compelled me to do something. I
got two bottles of German Syrup. I
began using them, and before taking
much of the second bottle, I was
entirely clear of the Cough that had
hung to me so long, the Grippe, and
all its bad effects. I felt tip-top and
have felt that way ever since."
