MISS FYDtatrs MISTAKE.
"If you please ma'uui, won't you give
me a drink of ini.k?''
Miss Fydget had just come in from a
long and bootless search through the pas
ture for a wandering brood of young
turkeys which had been missing since
She was warm and tired; one l-oot was
burst open on the side; her sun-bonnet
hung limp at the back of her head; her
gray curls were in true artistic confusion,
and a vicious blackberry briar had torn
her hands until she looked as if she
might have beeu in a skirmish with the
"But I wouldn't have minded all that,"
was Miss Fydget's melancholy comment
to herself, "if only I could have found
my young turkeys ! They do noy that
j there is a company of tramps loating
around tlie country, and
Just then the mild voice of an old
man Hitting on the well curb broke in
upon the thread of her reflection an
old man in a shabby gray oil, buttoned
closely across his chest, shoes thickly
coated with dust, and a rude cane cut
from the woods, upon which he rested
his folded hands
Miss Fydget stared at the old man;
the old man returned her gaz-; depreeiat-
"Perhaps you're deaf, ma'am," said
the stranger, elevating his voice a semi
tone or so higher.
"No more than yourself," said Miss
Fydget, naturally somewhat .rritated.
"Would you have the kindness to give
me a little milk 1"
Miss Fydget bethougt herself of the
floating rumor she heard. Perhaps this
venerable vagrant was one of very band
now marauding the vales and glens of
Ilojhemont; perhaps even now he hud a
corps of bloody-minded coadjutors hid
den behind the stone wall, or under the
moss-grown roof of the ancient smoke
house. And Miss Fydget was possessed
of several pieces of antique silver, and

answered, not without a covert smile.
"No you'r not," said Miss Fydget,
incensed, at what she deemed apiece of
"You're a tramp."
The stranger smiled.
"Is a tramp, then, destitute of all the
privileges of humanity"?" he asked.
"Eh r said Miss Fydget
"Tramps must live as well as other
people," pleaded the old man. Now,
look at me."
"Yes," said Miss Fydgt, "I'm looking i
at you, and a dirty, shabby -looking fig
ure you are, I must say.'
"I've walked fifteen miles since morn-
lag, with nothing :o eat or anna-.,,.
"That's what they all say," said Miss:
"Would it be any great stretch to your
hospitality to give me a slice of bread
and a drink of milk t" he persisted.
Miss Fydget stood for a pioment j on
daaing tla prtitiott in her mind.
"Look here old-man," 3he said at last,
"I know perfectly well -that you" are a
tramp, .but I suppose you are human af
ter alL There's a pile of knotty stumps
under the the shed; you may split a lew
for my cookingatove,"
"But ma'am" .
"I knew just how it would be," shrilly
interrupted JViiss Fydget. "You're a
deal too lazy to work, you'd rather starve
than do an honest day's work any time."
"I beg your pardon," said the old man,
mildly. "It's a good many years since I
split a pile ot wood."
"I'll go bail it is," said: Miss Fydget,
satirically. ' ' "r ' '-"
'"But if you Will get we Utettxn, I will
try and do my best,." he added meekly
"The axe is hanging up iiv 4ihe .wood
shed, at the left-hand side of the. -door,"
said Miss Fydget, and she went into the
house, leaving her venerable visitor to
do as he pleased about accepting her
After she was within the four yellow
washed walls of her own kitchen, howr
ever, it occured to her that she had done
rather a foolish thing.
"I suppose he'd as soon split my head
open as the sticks of wood," she thought
to herself. .
"And of course he knows that I'm
alone in the world I mean in the house
but it's pretty much the same thing,'
with a deep sigh. "And who knows but
that I mav be murdered within the next
five minutes V
"Thud " came the sound of the axe do-
Rcendii.s; with slow, regular strokes upon
the knotty stumps, of 3'ellow pine, and
Miss Fj det listened with a sort of ter
rible fascinati S, wondering as she did
so, what sort of a relation in the matter
of sound the human tympanum might
beat to the pine stumps.
And with noiseless movements she
went across the kitchen" floor and took
down a rusty musket which had hung
suspended over the old brick chimney
ever since she was a child.
"I don't know as I could fire it off."
said she, "but I'll try if I see any signs
It was unnecessary, however. She
poured out a liowl ot milk, first thriftily
pausing to skim it, and then cut a good
thick slice of rye b-e:td, taking care to
secrete tne bread knile wiien she was
through. And then, seating herself by
the window, her thoughts wandered back
to the question or the missing brood of
"He knows where they are, I'll bet
anvthin;, and he shall tell me. Old man

The venerable wood splitter paused at
the sound of her summon.
"Come here !" she called.
The old man obeyed.
"You've done enough," said Miss
Fydgfttt, inwardly rejoiced that he bad

instead of coming toward her brandish

"That is just what I was' thinking
myself," observed the ;old- man, wiping
his streaming forehead.
"And now, said Miss fydget. sharply
and suddenly, ns if she fain would take
him by surprise, "Where are my turkeys?"
"Eh!" uttered the old man.
"My turkeys!" shrilly enunciated Miss
Fydget; "my brood

The old matt looked bewildered. Mis

to strike dismay into the most abdurate
"Madam " he began, but Mis
Fvdget interrupted him.
"There 's your bread and milk. ' If
you can eet and drink with a good con
science, knowing that my turkeys are
gone, do so."
Apparently Miss Fydget's turkeys
rested but lightly upon the conscience of
the wayfarer, for he ate and drank to
the very last mouthful.

EDS. LeAuER Gentlemen : If a license is
something that grants (icrmisMon or authority

to liceu.-e that which is good and legitimate,
or him- ran it be lawful tu license tlint which
is bad! Anion;' the prorrinent duties of a
government are the aduiinifdra'ion of justice
and the reveiitiun uui puiiisbuicut of wrong
doing, and it should be cuiiMsUnt iu carrying
these enda. What need, then, can there be
for the license system? Take saloons for an
example. If the dealing out of intoxicating
drinks ia a good avocatTuit, vby iu the name
of commoii sense does our government tax
it by making saloon-keepers pay a license for
engaging in it ? Why not impose a license
on the grocer, the dry-ouds merchant and
the hardware man? Are certain kinds of
lawful and laudable avocations to be taxed
and imposed upon, while others are allowed
the impunity of such taxation? Yes; but
some says there is a vast difference: selling
cigars and whisky is a bad bniness, and
ouht to be suppressed as much us possible,
This seems to be adding intuit to injury. It
alon keeping is really an iniquitous and
nefarious business, what right has our guv-
erdweut to license the same ?
' The idea is preposterous that our civilized
and Christian government should recognize

A light-house about 250 feet high, fur

is an object of interest, and its flashe
can be seen at a distance of over 20
miles from the land. There is an inlet,
shut off from the ocean, which furnishes
an excellent opportunity for fishing' and
boating. We were much pleased with
Atlantic City, and greatly surprised at
the improvements which have been made
since our last visit. At the principal
hotel there is something in the line of
hops, concerts, and entertaii-menta of one
kind or another going on all the time,
which makes things quite lively. There
is a singular fly to be found here in the
