to talk to a woman In the - entry;
then he came Into the workroom with
hi customary: "Hello, father," add

Mr. Homhach atarted a If he had

Although grnerou to a fault, he had
drawn the line of generoaity and

or 95. Hli did not look old, but waa

working to cut a large aliee, which
she brought to Itandolph on one oi

The -thought returned to the boy

much nicer than any younger lady.
One could be quite con.fortable be

wasn't "giddy; ahe didn't tense and

again, Knndolph," she said. "Please
take the chisel hnck to your pa with
my compliments, and bring me up a
little saw. Mine I so big and clumsy
that I can't manage H."
"Certainly, Miss Elizabeth, I'll ask
him," responded Kaudolph, with some
misgivings aa to what would be the
outcome of thl second appeal for the
loan of a tool.
It did not promise well for the suo
ces of hi errand that, going down
stair, he heard his father arguing
vehemently with a man In the work
shop. He waited outside until the
man had gone. Hut. Mr. Hombaeh,
pursuing a habit he sometime in
dulged In, continued to demolish the
argument of hi vanished opponent.
"You are wrong," he vociferated;

Hut Mr. nombach was too deeply
stirred to heed or even to notice the
boy. "Your argument is based on an
ex'rloded theory I You don't know "
Knndolph was obliged to wait until
the argument was concluded. Then
he auid, speaking very earnestly, in
hi elrar, boyish tones:
"Miss Elizabeth thank you for the
chisel, father. Here it I. Bee, it
Isn't spoiled. She' a very nlee, care
ful lady, Mis Elizabeth is. Hhe needs
a little saw very badly; hers In an
old, rusty one, and It won't work.'
"What! What's that!" exclaimed
Mr. Hombaeh, raining his black brows
with a fresh stnrt of horror. "Does
the woman want a saw now? I was
a fool a fool! I might have known
I was only making trouble for my
elf! Hah! Hie disgust turned to
severe Irony. "Mnybe the woman

"Miss Elizabeth is going to give me
a slip off her pink geranium," suid
Mr. Hombaeh grunted unwillingly,
and the frown deepened between his

"No," said Mr. Ilambach.

Just such a saw a Mis Ilradley
wanted. Itandolph looked at the nar
row, gleaming blade anxiously, then
at hi father. "How Is' Miss Eliza

Mr. Hombaeh shook hi bushy hair
Impntlently. "T cannot lend tools!
No, no! The wotnnn hns no sensed
My tools are my friends! Who ever
heard of lending a friend?"
Randolph's countenance fell; but in
a moment he brightened with a new
'O, fatlwr," he gasped out with
breathless eagerness to test the
availability of his Idea, "couldn't you
take the saw upstairs yourself and
do the work for Mis Elizabeth for
the sake nf the saw, you know?"
Mr. Ilomlmch s brows went up
again, and he ran his fingers through
his thirk, upstanding hair as If the
blen waa tl i 111 cult of comprehension.
'Sure einnugh, Knndolph," he f.iiltl In
an altered tone, hla combative spirit
all gone. "How iihsurd of me not to
hove thought of Hint It first. Vest,
yea, of course, that Is the r.nly sensi

a few moments.
To himself he continued as he went
upstnlra with his tool box: "That lit
tlu Knndolph of mine is no common
Imy. Whoever he la, there Is the
blood of a statesman In hi veins.
He'll mnhc his mark In the world."
Miss Elizabeth llriulley did not u.sk
for the loan of any more tools. As
the weeks passed Randolph noticed
that his father went upstairs to chat
with her now and then, to the great
disappointment of the men who
called every evening to diseiiHH poli
tics, anil to the relief of the neigh
bors who wanted to sleep.

I courage new loeas in gunnery nmrau
of we'coining inventions, ns persons in
charge of any private enterprise would
naturally do. Y hen I went to jmiiano
a a boy," said the shrewd old inventor,
"I had en experience with ordinary
army nit-thuds I bate never forgotten.
It scema there was a guard posted at
certain corner for some twenty-odd
years. The aentry was relieved every
four hours or so without the slightest
question during all that time.
"Finally some one began to question
why a guard was posted at that par
ticular corner at all. A laborious
search was instituted among the old
army records, and finally, to the amuse
ment of everybody, the reason for that
sentry was at last discovered. It seems
that a fence was pointed on that cor
ner, and to keep the people from soiling
their ciothes some well-disposed o-ffioer
statiotitd a soldier with a gun there.
The paint dried on the fence and the
fence fell down, and the corner was
built up with another building, but the
sentry still paced his beat there for 2(T
years or more.
"In this wny some of our army tradi
tions have been kept up, and officers
w ho are both brave and intelligent have
gone on doing certain things in a cer
tain wny because a method was initi
ated In the department long years ago
for a particnlar contingency which has
since entirely disappeared."

In 30 second a snow-white lamb,
belonging to a flqpk that was being
driven past the new achoolhousc on
the Short Tract road the other day at
Xundu, N. Y., routed the entire school,
frightened Miss Alice Hay, the teach

tees to hold a special session to as
propriate mosey to repair the damage
the Inmb hnd done.
"It's the sweetest little lamb, just
the kind that followed Mary to
school," Miss liny mid to her pupils
as the lamb dashed Into the room.
The pupils thought so, too, until Miss
lia.v began to pet the lnmb and show
It toward the door. Then the little
notion! began racing around the
schoolroom. It collided with the stove
and knocked a leg from nnder it and
It fell In a heap. The conl senttered
ail over the floor, starting a fire.
Miss liny and the pupils broke for
the door and escaped, followed by a
blinding smoke. They carried snow
and water and put out the Are. The
