Mad Dog Chases Cyclist LADY'S WILD RIDE THROUGH THE STRUTS. She Was Tempted to Faint, but Wouldn't, and Put on Steam and Distanced the Brute. A savage St. Bernard deg foaming at the mouth and snapping and snarling pursued ft bicycle girl 'through Hie streets oi Orange, N.J.. in America. It was a close race for (,-evcral blocks. The dog, which had gone mad, made good time, but the girl finally distanced him. Miss Harriet Coffin was the wheel- woman- She lives at Hobokon. Whenever she gets the opportunity slie jumps on her bicycle and leaves Hoboken behind her. One of her favourite nips is the one to Orange. "I was wheeling along enjoying the lovely air and placidly thinking how many miles I was from Hoboken. Suddenly an enormous St. Bernard dog, that >Ie<cmed to have known th3.t I was going to pass, sprang out from a gate. It looked as if he had been hiding there vmiJ I came along, I suppose that dqg imagined that the moment 1 raw him I would scream and faint a.nd then fall off my wheel and give him a charm* to eat me up. But I said to myself, 'Nit!' I admit that my nrat impulse was to f-Mnt, but I restrained myself. I usually faint at 2 crisis, but this time I made up my mind I wasn't goingi to. When the dog, which behaved more like an aggravated lion that, a dog. made a leap for me I wm going along at about four miles an hour. Any dog can go twice that fast. I began to pound the pedals as hard; as I could. The dog was five feet behind. As I put on steam I could heart* him yelping a.nd panning behind. In my imagination 1 felt his paws upon my slioul der and his teeth buried in my back. I looked prcundl and the sight of him nearly made me fall off. I was trembling all over, and my hands shook so that I could hardly guide my wheel. I don't know how far the cha.se lasted it couldn't- haive been much more than a mile, but it seemed ten. Then the dog begau to give up and fall behind. The knowledge that I was winning the "'M'(, made me feei so good that- I travelled all the faster, and presently there was no dog in sight. My only regret is that I was not timed. I was looking up°Zisnmerman's records to-day. That main Zim- merman doesn't go faster than a snail. All the short distance records were beaten by me with a mad St. Bernard dog as pacemaker, but I suppose they won't be allowed by the Amateur Athletic Union. I feel like claiming a mile in half a minute." Several residents of Orange, who saw Miss Coffin racing with the dog, said they thought there would surely- be a smash up, she went so fast. After the r*oa eeveral men hunted th» dog down and killed him.
KUSER'S HE FANCIES RF, OUGHOLI. TO BB QUEEN VICTORIA'S HEm. The German Emperor is depicled iti a new light by Mrs. Qrawfo 1. says one who has attended his Wednesday smoking parties, "looks on himself as the head of his whole kindred. He fancies, without knowing he does, that, as the Queen's eldest grandson, he ought to be her heir. This notion oozes out whenever he i, in the company of the Prince of Wales. The Queen does not exactly humour him, but she shows deep re- t-pect, which no doubt she feels, for his rank. He is her grandson when they are quite alone, but her brother when anyone is present. The cau-e of his feud with his mother was that she went on treating him a.s her son after he left school. She used to call him 'Willy,' and speak of him as 'that boy.' \ha.\ is rather funny is that he leaves the Emprn-s Frederick entirely out .in, -his vague dreams about his natural right co boss England in England. He quite forget his interntior.ai relations to members of his family. The Prince of Wales must often feel this. The Crown Princess of Grccoe was made to feel it keenly when she chose to enter the Greek Church to be able to go to the Orthodox Mass on Sundays with her I huoband.
A JUDGE'S SIMPLE QUESTION. A certain learned judge of the High Courts, when attempting to be clear, is at times rather perplexing. "My good woman," he is reported to have said to a witness, "you must give an answer, in the fewest possible words of which you are capable, to the plain and simple ouos- tion whether, when you were crossing the street with the baby on your arm, and the omnibus was coming down on the right side and the cab on the left side, and the brougham was trying to pass the omnibus, you saw the plaintiff between the brougham and the cab, or between the omnibus and the cab, or whether and when vou saw him at all, and whether or not near the brougham, cab. or omnibus, or either, or any two, and which of them respec- tively—or how was iW ? ==- -4
FALSE EVIDENCE BY E. PHILLIPS OPPENHEIM- L•Father, I said to him one evening when ¡ were sitting out upon our little strip of lawn togtither, he smoking. I envying him for being able to smoke, do you know that I. have never been out of Devonshire—n ever been further than Exeter even, and I am eighteen years old?" It was long be-fore he answered me, and when, at la-t, he turned round and did so, I was distressed to aee the look of deep anxiety in his worn, tiandsome face. and the troubled liuht in his clear eyes. I I know it. my bov." he said, pityingly. I have been expecting this. Yon are weary of the country." I stood up, with my hands i.n my pockets, and my back against the latticed wall of the h"o*e. gazing over the 'parklmg, dancing gea. to where, on the horizon. tbt- stars seem to stoop and meet it. Was I tired of this quiet home? I Nearmly kiiew; col.Ultry sport" and country sights were d-ear to me, and I had no desire to leave them for ever. I thought of the fat trout in the Exford streams, and the, JIL, tsnitn's rallying call from other side Duckerry," and the wild buds that needed so much getting at and suoh quick firing, and of the deep sea fishing, a.Tid the shooting up the ooomoo fiom Farmer Pulsford's boat, and of the delight of stripping on a hot suminor s day, siod diving deep down into the cool, bracing water. Why should I wish to have all this? What rhonld I be likely to find pleasanter in the world of which, as yet, I know nothing For a moment or two I hesitated—but is wa* only for a moment or two. The nesfJessness wbich had been growing up within me for yea.rs was buili upon a solid foundation, and would not be silenoed. "No, I'm not tired of the country, father," I answered, slowly; "1 love it too much over to be tired of it. But men don't geot>r&lly Jjvsa in cm plaoot, do they, with- out having :my work, or anything to do except enjoy themselves?" "And what should you like to be?" my father asked, quickly. I lot'^ ago made up my mind upon that,jx>int, and was not slow to answer— "1 should like to be a soldier," I declared, emphah. ally. I was very little prepared for the result of my word?. A spasm of what seemed to be the most acute pair, passed across my father's face, and he covered it for a moment with his hands. When he withdrew them he locked like a ghost, deathly pale, in the golden moonlight, and when he -spoke his voice tn mbled witih 0motion. "God forbid that you should wi<h it seriously he said, "for it is the one thing which you can never be." "Oh, Hugh, you do not mean it really you do not wish to go away from us I turned round, for the voice, a soft and gentle one, was my mothers. She was stand- ing in the open window, with a fleecy white- shawl around h.w head, and her eyes, the sweetest I ever saw, lixed appeal in gly upon me. I glanced from one to the other blankly, for my disappointment was great. Then, like a flash, a sudden convicition laid hold on me. There was some great and mysterious reason why we had lived so long apart from the world. CHAPTER TIL r "THE BOY MUST BE TOLD." That was quite an eveuhful night in our quiet life- While we thpee stood looking at one another half fo. full of this strange, new idea whftcin had just occurred to me-we heard the in tcfe ct our garden gate lifted, and new idea whftcin had just occurred to me-we heard the in tcfe ct our garden gate lifted, and Mr. Cox, the vicar of Por lock, and my iu-: structor in 'the classics, followed by no fewer j than four large-limbed, brpad-hh#uldercd, Poi;-J look nipQj entered* look nipQj entered* They made their way up the steep garden j path, and my father, in no little surprise, rose to greet them. With Mr. Cox lie shook hands, I a.nd then glanced inquiring-ly at his; followers, vi ho, after touching their hats respectfully, stood in a row, looking supremely uncomfor- I broke 011 all at once, for his face had become like a dead man's, and lie had sunk heavily 0:1 to a seat. -< -?.I_ table, and each betraying a strong disposition to retire a little behind the others. Mr. Cox proceeded to explain matters. "You nre pleased to look upon us as a deputation," he said, pleasantly, waving his hand towards the others, of which I am the spokesman. We come from the Porlock Work- I ing Men's Conservative Club." t "THE BOY MUST BE TOLD." I My iatbtr hawed, sad. bidding me briug forward] a garden, seat, requested the deputa- tion to be seated. Then ho called into the house for Jane to bring out some jugs of cider and glasses, and a decided smile appeared on the somewhat wood! n facta of the deputation. I was vastly interee-'ted, and not 3, little curious. When, the cider had been brought and dis- tributed, and a raid made upon the tobacvo jar, Mr. Cox proceeded with his explanation. "Wo have come to ask you a favour, Mr- Arbuthnot," he sa,iu. "We are going to hold a political meeting in the schoolroom at Por- ¡I lock next w*ek. A gentleman from Minehead is going to give us an address on the land ftuastioa wtfesh prgiatf&s tot be very iptej^eting, and Mr. Bowles here has kindly promised to say a few words." I The end man on the scat here twirled his hat. and. being nudged by his neighbour, be- trayed! his pnrsonaiity by a broad grin. Finally, to relieve his modesty, he buried his face in the mug of cider which stood by his side. "The difficulty we are in is this," continued I Mr. Cox, "we want a chairman. I have most ui forturuuely promised to be in Exeter on •that day. andl shall not be able to return in time for the meeting, or else we would not have troubl,d you. But, as I shall not be avail- able, we thought that perhaps you might be induced to1 accept the off ce. That is what we have come to ask you- My father shook his head- "It is very kind of you to think of me." he eaia, hesitatingly, "but I f.ar that I mu.-t decline your offer. Politics have lost most of tneir interest for me—and-—and, in short, I think I would rather not." "I hope you will re-co'isider that," Mr. Cox said, pleasantly. "It will be a, very slight tax upon you after all. You need only say a very f^w wordA Come, think it over again. We really are at our wit's end or we would II not have troubled you. "There is Mr. Soithem," my father pro- tested. "He is in bed! ill. An attack of pleurisy, I think." "Mr. Brown, thcnT" "A rank Raidcal." "Mr. Jephcote?" "Away." I "Mr. Hetton?" "Gone to London for a week." "Mr. Smith, then?" "Will be at Exeter cattle fair." My father was silent for a moment or two. Then he suggested some rnore names, to eaoi of which tht.re was some objection. "You do seem to have been unfortunate," he declared at last. To tell you the truth, Mr. Cox," he added, thought fully, "I scarcely know what to say- I had made up my mind, t for certain privato rea £ WS> fever W (i%ve any- --??. thing to do with public life in any shape or form." "This isn't a very formidable undertaking, is it?" Mr. Cox urged, smiling. "It isn't. But the principle is the same," my father answered. "However, leave it in this way if you like. Give me until to-morrow evening to think the matter ever, and in the meantime ree if you can't find someone else. I'm afraid I can't say more than that." The deputation thought, that nothing could be fairer than this, and nothing more satis- factory except an unqualified assent. I think my father imagined that having promised so much they would take their departure. But nothing of the sort happeied. Perhaps they found the cider too good, or, perhaps, they were tired after their day's work and t'ho walk from Porlock. At any rate, there they sat for more than an hour, taking occasional gulps at their cider, and puffing incessantly at their blackened pipes with a stolid, vacuous look on their honest faces, whilst my father and Mr. Cox talked a little aoide in a low one. I fancied that I was the subject of their conversation, but though I strained my ears in the attempt to oatch some part of it I was unsuccessful. Once or twice the sound of my name reached me, but directly I leaned forward they dropped their voices, so that I could hear nu more. I have always believed, however, that my father was asking advioe from Mr. Cox conoerning me, and thai Mr. Cox was urging him to send me to the Uni- versity. But I never knew for certain, for events were soon to occur which swept out of my mind all minor curiosity. At last Mr. Cox rose to go, and the depu- tation, with manifest reluctance, did the Game. My father courteously accompanied them to tho garden gate, and shook h:md,; Wtt,h them all, thanking them for .their visit. When ho returned there was a slight sparkle in his eyes, and an amused smile on his Hps. So monotonous was our life that even such an vveni as thic was welcome, and I could tell from his manner that he was pleased at the request, which had be811 made to him, and dis- posed to accept it. 1 detewmped to enoouiage biw io ife "Govea-nior," 1 remarked, 'leaning over the wall and watching the retreating forms of iur visitors, "I hope we're not going to have many political deputations here, especially if they re I all going to be as thirsty as this one was. Did you ever see such fellows for cider? We shan't have a drop left for the hot weather if you enieourag? this sort of thing. But you'll do what they want you to, won't you ? I should! It'll be capital fun, and I'm sure you'd make a rattling speech. You're up on the land question, too. I Inwd you giving it to Old Simpson the other morning. Mv father smiled, and stood by my side watching them make their way down tee coomhe "I shall have to consult your mother about it," he said. "I almost think that I may ven- ture it," he add?d, in a lower tone and Ihought- fuUv. as though to himself. "Venture it What could there be adven- turous in it?*' I wondered, "to a well-ivad. scholarly man such as I knew him to ¡'p!" But I did not dare to ask. Presently ho turned to me with a much graver look in hi« face. "Hugh!" he said, "these people interrupted our conversation. There is something which I must say to you at once. I do not wish you tj become a soldier. When you feel that you can stay here mo longer, and that thL< country life is two quiet for you, you must choose some other profession. But a soldier you can never be. I was bitterly o.isappin*ed and nnt a i'ttie cirrous, and an idea which, had often occurred to me swept suddenly into my mind with re- newed strength. "Father, may I ask you a question?" He hesitated, but did not forbid I le. "I have heard it said down in the Tillage— everyone says that you TI'-tFt once have he.'ii a soldier. You walk and hold your head likr; one, and—father, what is the matter?" I broke off all at once, for his face had become like a dead man's, and he had euuk heavily on I to the seat. I would have srprang to his side, but my mother was there before me. She had passed one arm around his nedk, and with the other she motioned me to go into the house. -?--?- ?-- "It isn't your fault, H ugh, she -aid, "but you HUH n't ask your favhc* questions; they distress him. Leave us now. I turned heavily away, and went. upstairs to my room. About an hour afterward*, when I pushed open my window before getting into bed, there stole .into my room, together with the sweet scent of jessamine and climbing roses, the sound c'f subdued voices. "He niu^bg^lj^l I heard my father eav solemnly. 'T*od gw me strength." Then the voices ceased for a while, but I still lingered, and presently they began again, but in a more cheerful kpy. I moved away, and got into bed, but I left the window open as I alwavs did, and somr- fragments of their conversation still reached me. "1 am sure that you need have no fear, Her- bert. No one in the-e parts can have the slightest idea of I hope you will It will be a change Now, promise." I ODtrld hear nothing of my father's reply, but from its tonle- he seemed reluctant, though wishful. Then the voices dropped again, and I think t'hat I must have dozed for some time. But suddenly I awoke and sat up in bed, startled, for my father's voice was ringing in through the window. "You are right, Manian you are right. I will do my duty. The boy must be told. The time has come when I mu«t dig up my trouble again. The boy must be told." Then I heard them enter the house (leaving the door wide open, as was our common prac- tice), and come up to tli.-ir rooms. Afterwards there was silence, but there was no more sleep for ine that i-ii-qht. CHAPTER IV. "A MYSTERIOUS MEETING- On the morrow my father, not a little to my surprise, appeared to be in a particularly cheerful frame oif mind. At breakfast time he remarked that the dav looked well for fi.shinig, and asked me whether I would not like to go. Of course I consented willingly, and William, our man, I or, rather, boy of all work, wve sent dQ- to Mr. Cox, with whom I used generally to read in the morning, with /ny father s compli- ments and my excuses What sport WI", had all day long! We waded kr.ee-dcep, sometimes >vais» high, down the Padgeworthy stream, following its gleaming course p.a.t Loma'iS tower, pas: waterslide^ which I never looked upon without thinking of John Riild's description, ar.d round the green hills of the Doone Valley as far as th< bend of the stream. It was a long ride home, and across a dosos late country. I think that I should have gone to sleep in the saddle, I was so tired, but for the stern necessity of pickii g our way care- fully along what was nothing better than a sheep walk. I remember that night ride well Suddenly my father pulled his pony almost on its haunchcs, and instinctively \A ilUam and I did the tame. "Listen he cried. I bent down and listened intently. "I hear rothing." I remarked, gathering up my reins, for I was desperately hungry and cold. My father held up his hand to bid me stay and then, turning towards the inland stretch ot moor, shouted, "Hulloa, there! H ll11oa.! Hulioa!" We listened, and. to my surprise, we heard almost immediately an answering shout, faint, and evidently a long way off, but distinctly a man's hail. It was scarcely safe to leave the traok, so we stopped Where we were, and all three shcuted. And, sure enough, in less than five r.iniltes, we heard the wound of galloping hoofs, and a tall, stately-looking man came riding out of the midst mounted on a fine bay horse, which seemed to have been up to its girths in a morass, and which was trembling in every limb. "I'm uncoivmonlv glad to see you, gentle* men, whoever you are," he exclaimed, riding up to us. "For close upon three hours have I beer trying to come upon a pnth, or a road, or a track, or something that led somewhere, and have oniy b'uooecded in losing mynelf more completely.
