Young Barnard had opened the back
door of his home and turned King 1I„ I
his bulldog, out for a run in the big !
yard, himself following to smoke a
cigar and incidentally gambol a bit
with King, his most valued posses-
King II is so bow-legged, so promi- j
nent of tooth and so splotched and
generally so terrifyingly ugly that the
mere sight of him is enough'Ao diive
a nervous perron info hysterics or
into the nearest tree. This, of course,
enhances bis value in the eyes of the
King saw the cat first. It was not
the eort of cat one weald expect to
find wandering in hack yards, being
white and silky aqd languid in its
movements. Perhaps the fact that the
cat moved haughtily, like one accus-
tomed to reign over its surroundings,
was what irritated Ring. At any rate
he showed his resentment in the
“Good-boy!” - chortled young Bar-
nard. “Good work!”
It was not that he wished to see the
cat hurt, but King certainly needed
exercise and there was not much dan-
ger of his catching the quarry. Around
the yard the two flew like two con-
tinuous streaks, the cat disdaining lo
climb the fence and escape. It kept
exactly two yards ahead of the dis-
gusted bulldog. Barnard stood on the
steps grinning and encouraging King,
whose tongue had begun to hang out
Suddenly there was a rush from tlia
other side of tno nigh tence bordering
the next yard. A mass of brown hair,
two indignant brown eyes and two
widely waving hands burst upon the
vision of young Barnard.
"Trixie! Trixie!" shrieked the girl.
“He’ll be killed! He will! W£y don’t
you call off that horrible dog? Trixie,
Young Barnard glared back. “Is
that your cat?" he asked. “Why don’t
you keep it at home?”
The cat had leaped agilely to the
fence and into the arms of its res-
cuer. Then it. turned and sneered at
the frantic bulldog that was dashing
itsfdf against the fence. Young Bar-
nard naturally went to the comfort of
his dog, thereby approaching the fu-
rious young person across the fence.
“A cat,” she said, hotly, “has a per-
fect right to climb a fence if it wants
to and I’d have you know that Trixie
had taken three blue ribbons and,
anyhow, I don’t see how a human be-
ing can have such a dreadful looking
creature around as that dog of yours!
Why, he’d have killed Trixie in two
“King is as gentle as a child!”
young Barnard retorted. “He was
just playing with your foolish cat.”
The young person across the fence
elevated her eyebrows disbelievingly
and sniffed pointedly. “Anyhow,” sin-
insisted, “he’s probably scared Trixie
into heart disease!” There were tears
in her eyes as she stroked her pet.
Young Barnard, his wrath cooling,
took time to observe that her skirts
were to her shoefops and sho was
small and slight. He felt a little
ashamed of himself for quarreling
with a child, being 25 hjmself. More-
over, she was very pretty.
See here, little girl,” he began mol-
iifyingly, “you mustn’t, feel angry.
Your cat really isn’t hurt and-”
Her eyes flashed furiously. “You’re
ruder than your ugly dog!” she de-
clared. ”1 know where the dog got
its bad manners!”
Young Barnard found himself alone,
gazing at the door through which a
tempest of brown hair, flashing eyes,
short skirts and white cat had just
“Now what the dickens is the mat-
ter with that kid?” he muttered be-
”1 didn’t know you’d met the West’s
niece,” said his sister when he en-
tered the house.
“Neither did I,” said young Barnard,
“Well, you were having a chatty lit-
tle time with h#r just now!” persisted
his sister. “Ever since I heard sho
was coming I’ve xvanted you to make
» good impression on her. She's ter-
ribly fashionable and awfully popular
and has been abroad six times. Bid
you ever see such exaggerated style
as she wears? Her skirts are two
Inches shorter than any other girl’s
and she looks about 16, instead of 22,
but she’s a dear!”
’Great guns!” groaned young Bar-
nard, suddenly grasping the situation.
“And I called her ‘Little girl!’ x>
wonder she exploded! Oh, I made a
fine impression, all right!"
“Now, Billy Barnard!” said his
ter, “begin at the beginning and teil
me all about it!”
Safe That Floats.
A buoyant safe that in case of <1<?
aster will float to the surface as the
ship equipped with it sinks, his been
devised by four mechanics in the nav
yard at Bremerton, Wash. Tito safe
consists of a large cylinder of steel
which is divided into two compart-
ments, the lower one b-ing an air
chamber and the lower fitted as a re-
ceptacle for money and papers.
