Subscriptions received at the office of publication 151 State stree. J.M. MOSES, Publisher, Marshall, Mich, Testing the Oysters. A Chicago lady called upon Health Officer " Wickersbam upon a mysterious mission. She brought with . her half a dozen fried oysters. "They have been tryin« to poison me again, doctor," she said, as she laid the oysters' before him. . "Oh, no, I guess not," replied the official. . "Yes, they have," said the visitor, "but I've outwitted them this time, you see. I have brought the poisoned oysters right to you to be analyzed. There they are." The doctor argued quietly with the lady, trying to convince her that she was the . victim of an hallucination, but 'his labors were vo>n. Realizing the fraltlessness ol argument under these circumstances, the doctor chatted pleasantly with his visitor till she became quieter, and then said, "So the poison is in these oysters, is it?" "Yes, I'm certain of it." The doctor picked up one of the bivalves, nibbled at it cautiously for a moment, and, with a sigh of satisfaction, slipped it intc his mouth. "My stars! that was good!" he exclaimed, smacking his lips. "Your cook understands his business. That was fit for a kingT"? Ana without more ado the remaining oysters, one after another, went tossosfy the hunger of the health department of the city of Chicago. There was a long period of silence, broken •at last by the woman, who said, very meekly, "Doctor!" "Yes'm." "I've been a fool. I'm very sorry for 1$, and for the trouble I have caused you." \ "I assure you that I am your debtor, 'nittdam," gallantly rejoined the "doctor* "M all my professional analyses were as ereeable and satisfactory as this seems ikely to be I should be much better pleased witb, my position,"— Chicago Mail, His First Silk /Hat. He walked into the big hat store and looked about him timidly. He was rather undersized and it was evident from his manner that he was about to take a very important step in the matter of headgear. He was. His mission was to purchase his first silk hat. It is peculiar how deeply most men will meditate on that step before they take it The particular person now under discussion thought that he had screwed his courage up to the sticking point, but-he hadn't. A clerk approached him and his courage failed him. Show me a derby, he said. The polite clerk showed several derbys, which the young miyn listlessly tried on, None of them suited -him, of course. Finally he said: "I wonder how a silk hat would become me. Do you think I could wear one?" "Wear one? Of course you could," said the clerk. "You're just like everybody else who buys a silk hat for the first time. They all ask the same questions. They want the&silk hat themselves, but they fear p that a debut In that sort ol headgear will be the signal for their friends to begin guying them. This feeling wears off after the first day or two, and then you are happy." He bought the silk hat.— New York Timea. yi-eft /lad fa Struggling^ A Turk /lad fallen into a well A Jew ran for a ladder to get hin» ojut. ••'/. - "No,- no,'?/ said; the son •£ the Crescent, "I am no* going to dimb ypnr ladder, as ^ *£, * ridav < the day consecrated to In'spitepf hja entreaties the Jew had to go away and leave the Turk paddling in the water np to bis ehin.
