in a tree near the gate. When I came

servants said they had not seen It and
did not think the boy had left It. A
few minutes afterward I walked out 00

and shook hands with me, and gave me
an affectionate morning greeting. I
caught hold of him playfully by the Jaw,
and said jokingly. "Hullo, old cbapl
Have you se;n the Referee?" He Im
mediately ran down the drive, took the
paper out of a tree, and galloped up to
the. door. Mrs. Ionard Boyne was
witness of the performance.
