Qunllflefl. Our professor was lately lecturing at the "annex" to a clnss of three. In the course of his talk he caine to an exposition of his views .as to woman's functions in the body politic. "Women," he is reported to have said, "are merely the element of beauty in life. Their business is to make life graceful, and they can't do that, you know, unless they themselves BI^B pretty and graceful. If a girl is not pretty, she might just as well vanish from the face of the earth- that is," he qualified as he gazed at tho three sober spectacled faces in front of him—"er—unless—she's tolerably pretty, you know."—Boston Budget.

"How are the farmers making out this year?" asked a New Yorker, a former resident of Vermont, of -a friend from the old home. "Poorly i" replied the Green Mountain man. "You recollect old Bill Thompson? Well, his case illustrates the condition of affairs. It came around the end of the year, and he hadn't made enough to pay his man, so he had to sell a yoke of oxen to get money. •'< "When he turned the proceeds over to the fellow, he said, 'Tom, times are hard, farming's played ont, and I've got to let yon go.' i • • • ' ••••••: " 'But,' said Tom, 'you've got more cattle.

An examiner once visited a college of eorne importance in the north of England. Among other questions he asked what (was the cause of dew. No one could answer. At last one of the pupils got up and said: "The earth turns on its axis once in every 84 hours with euoh a rapidity that it perspires and thus produces dew."— Spare Moments. A lioony.

It was a handsome solitaire, and she evidently desired the jeweler to know that it was her engagement ring. "I would like to have this ring altered to suit my finger," said the pretty girl aa she flourished the brilliant bauble ^bef ore the eyes of the jeweler. . •• The jeweler took the ring and smiled. He had seen it before. "I can do that in a minute," he replied. Screwing a magnifying glass in' his eye and- taking a sharp- pointed instrument in his hand, he touched a minute spring on the inside of the ring and made it the exact size, saying as he placed it on her finger: "You see, these rings are made in this manner for the reason that they are worn by so many different people. It is a great convenience." The young lady sailed out of the shop burning with indignation, and the reason she did not fly was because she hadn't the wings. What did she think? You know, and it is only necessary to state that she did not wear the ring. Another girl has it now, but this time the jeweler was not permitted to touch the spring. The young man did it himself.—Pearson's Weekly. A Wit of the War. "In our company during tha civil war," said Captain T. E. Barlow of Milwaukee, "was a stuttering sergeant named Thomas and a chaplain named Chenalitt, -who was exceedingly untidy in personal appearance. ' The sergeant was a wit and gave the chaplain ho end of trouble. One cold day the parson had preached over an hour, and at the close of his discourse asked any one who felt serious to coihe forward. • "The sergeant went'at once. 'Do yon really feel serious? 1 asked the chaplain, rather doubtful of his convert. 'Se-serious, I sh-sh-should say I-I di-did.

Miss Alice isVlevoted to the opera, and for weeks she's been talking about 'dear Eames,' and 'lovely Melba,' and 'that adorable De Beszke.' I knew of course what she meant, but I was dead "broke and meant to keep out of her way until she'd made her father take a box." "Go it, my boy. I'll always think you've something in your head after this." "ButI happened to meet heron the street the other day as I was on my way to strike you for a loan. I was going to slip past, but she caught me; said she was just on her way to get tickets to the opera, and wouldn't I go with her to select the seats, she hud so much faith in my judgment." "After that, if I know you, you went." "I did. When our turn came, I selected the seats; then I went through the motion of putting my hand in my pocket for the money, though I knew there was none there.' She never said a word, the ticket seller grinned, and the man back of me growled. A cold perspiration broke out all over me, and I stammered: "Beally, Miss Alice, I'm awfully sorry, but I must hive left my notebook at tho office, and I haven't a cent with iuo. You ought to havo seen the look she gave me." "Well, it was tough, but she under stood." "Indeed she did, but it was a great deal worse than you think, for she was trying to blurt' me, too—nlio hadn't a cent cither. Oh, she'll never forgive we as long as she lives."
