A rather shabby lookiiig man walked into the office and took a chair beside the big desk. "I'm a little hard tip," he said, "and if you could let me have $100 for a short time I think it would tide ine over." The man behind the desk looked at his caller and became reminiscent. "Why, I haven't seen you for years," he said. "Let me see! You used to call down at my farm in the old days when I was located near Forty-first street." "Yes," said the caller; "I drove down there one day with a party of friends and filled up with some of your oherrv brandy." ,. "I remember it perfectly," said the man behind the desk. "After you had taken a little of it you wanted to buy the farm." "And you wanted $3,000 for it," said the caller. "And you agreed to take it," added the man behind the desk. "I did," admitted the caller, "and you came to my office the next day." "Yes, and you swore you wouldn't take it as a gift." "And you declared you had witnesses to my agreement to buy." "But you bluffed ine off." "I did," admitted the caller. "Well," said the man behind the desk, "I don't mind paying you $200 for bluffing me off. The farm has made me rich "' —Chicago Tribune. The Brilliant Student's Dilemma. A Harvard student told .me an amusing story about himself the other day. It seems that recently his mother had a young h;dy guest at their home on the Back Bay, and when he came from college in the afternoon he was introduced to her. At dinner also she sat opposite him at the table. He paid little attention to the fair visitor, as his mind was engrossed with a problem in his lessons. However, his brothers were as assiduous as possible in entertaining her. As it happened, the latter had engagements out that evening, and, as Mrs. A. had promised Miss B. to have one of her sons take her to the theater, it fell to the lot of my friend George, the Harvard man. He accepted the situation gracefully, and in due time the young couple set off for the theatre. Arriving, George left his companion at one side of the lobby while he stepped up to the box office and purchased the tickets; then, turning about, he looked toward the place where he had parted from the young lady, and was surprised to see half a dozen there, and—ye gods! is it possible?—he could not tell which was his precious charge! Here was a dilemma. George said he immediately decided that, rather than risk speaking to the wrong person, he would stand still till the young lady spoke to him. So ho gazed at his tickets for what seemed to him an age, but was probably only a minute, when Miss B. came up and said, "I fear you did not recognize me." "Oh, yes—yes—" stammered George, equivocating—"yes, I did; I thought they had not given mo tho seats I asked for, and was considering what was best to do in the matter."—Boston Herald.

I never saw an earnest worker, or a man who had real and serious duties to perform, who wore a hat too small for him. Many great lawyers and. statesmen, cranky but shrewd speculators, popular preachers, and history making generals and editors wear hats too large for them —sometimes so large that they act as extinguishers and are stopped in their downward course only by the projection of the ears; but I never saw one who wore a hat too small, perched upon the top of his head, Indeed, I might assert . as a positive and invariable fact that, save in cases of dire necessity, such as shipwrecks or utter and hopeless poverty, the man who \years a hat too small for him is a silly, frivolous, conceited creature, with no serious ideas on any subject, and only the most flippant and shallow views of life and its obligations. Even among tramps and vagabonds, the fellow with the "dinky" derby balanced upon his mop of unkempt hair, is the most hopeless wreck among his class; while there is always a gleam of intelligence, a spark of hope, in the tramp whose hat is too large for him.—Kate Field's Washington. Never Heard of Him. Telegraphers' stories are unique sometimes, and they do not hesitate to tell them to one another. It is said that the operators in New Haven, having always lived there, seldom hear of anything beyond the limits of the city and their operating rooms. The fact was illustrated recently when an operator in New York remarked to the man he was working within New Haven that Paruell had just died. "Who?" was the inquiry. "Parnell," was the reply. After a short interval, during which, it is supposed, the New Haven operator was in conference with somebody, this message was sent: "If you mean P. T. Barnuni, we heard that long ago, but no one knows who Parnell is."—Telegraph Age. A Story from tho American Indians. Many years ago a boy found a beautiful snake, so an Indian legend runs. He kept it in a bowl of water arid took notice that small feathers dropped into the receptacle became living. beings. He experimented and discovered that whatever .he put into the water became alive. He rubbed some of this snake water on his eyes and found 'that he could see things that were actually hidden in the grorfnd. Concluding that he would make the liquid more powerful by putting more snakes into it, he hung up a number of serpents so that their oil dropped into the water. By putting some of the solution thus obtained into his mouth he could breathe'fire, and by placing some of it in his eyes he could see in the dark. At will he could transform himself into a serpent, could become invisible and could travel at an incredible rate of speed. An arrow dipped into the liquid and shot at any living being, even if it did not hit its object, would nevertheless kill it. A feather dipped into this snake water and pointed at any game would immediately start for the latter and slay it. This boy became in this manner a great wizard.—Washington Tho Amateur Actress. We had rather throw aside this pen forever than to write a word to discourage any woman who is conscientiously striving to earn a position on the stage; but there are other women—some in the profession, some in the audience—to whom it is grossly unfair to put forth an inexperienced amateur as a star. Consider, ladies and gentlemen, what a poor, miserable art that of acting would be if anybody could acquire it in a few lessons, in a year or so, from a private box across the footlights fo the center of the stage. It takes a longer time to learn to be a carpenter or to play a piano, to be a dressmaker or to paint a picture, to be a typewriter or to cut hair properly, than amateurs who are now willing to bestow upon the art which includes, employs and dignifies all other arts from statuesque posing to wig wearing. If acting could be taught in a day it would not be so well paid nor so highly esteemed, and good acting wou- t be so uncommon.—Stephen Fiske ' Spirit of the Game Galore In Mnlne. Moose are so very plentiful in northern Maine that, as a sportsman can legally kill but one in a season, it is something of a disappointment to throw away the only chance on an undersized or lean animal, or one with poor antlers. The boss hunter of Medway, Llewellyn Powers, is a man who wastes no powder on inferior game, and when he started out after his annual moose the other day he was determined to get a good one. He rolled his old slouch hat into a horn and called a moose to the water at Pock- wockamos lake, but the bull did not suit, being too lean and carrying small antlers. Another and another came in response of the hunter's call, and finally the ideal monarch of the woods appeared. This bull fell before Powers' rifle. He weighed over a thousand pounds and earned a perfect set of antlers that spread five feet. No fault can be found with a hunting ground which affords such opportunities as this for taking one's pick of big game. Almost anybody can get a moose in the upper Penobscot region. The other day a twelve-year-old boy named Hathaway went into the woods alone, called a big moose and dropped him at the first shot. Louisville Courier Journal.

Two new alloys f or'making boring and cutting tools have been invented in England. The metal equals steel in hardness and temper, and does not lose its temper when heated by friction. The alloys consist of pig iron, ferro-manganese, chromium and tungsten in proper proportions, melted together in crucibles under stick charcoal and calcined borax. This compound is then remelted with bar iron and proportions of nickel, copper and alumin- ium are added. It is then cast in sand molds.—New York Times. ailut: You ill '° "««'U.v notillod ()f tUB PliiiMtlll in the iibove-«n- i tllu omtu ,ir the iv > fr colu ' t ' llsltl »K tlmt slio nmy lit- tli- L.

As men in early times fought hand to hand, the oldest specimens of the sword are short; in fact, the sword is probably but an evolution of the club, which at first made of hard wood was gradually sharpened on one and then on both sides, so as to inflict a more deadly wound! Even today we find some savage races employing wooden weapons. Wood gave way to stone, which in turn was displaced by bronze, i ron and finally steel. . The sword increased in length as men became more civilized and showed a disposition to fight farther away from each other, which required more dexterity in the use of the weapon. Some specimens we have of swords of the Middle Ages are almost if not quite as long as ftie war riors who wielded them. During the Fifteenth century the science of fencing was invented, when the sword in the form of a rapier reached the highest point of development.—Kate Field's Washington. UimsUod 'Sympathy.

A Public Duel. In the case of the trial for murder which is going on at Naples the deceased some time before his death fought a duel with a man who is now one of the prisoners. At the hearing the other day one of the witnesses, a government official, said that on the day of the duel he went with others to meet the carriages coming back, for "at Palermo every one knows everything, and the carriages returned as if from a festival, asA the people waited to see them." The public minister asked the witness how the news of the duel being about to take place was known to the public. Witness: "First by the Mafia in fixing on the place and hour. I have never seen such a duel; people went as if to a feast, and every one knew of it. Perhaps the circumstance that an officer was fighting had some influence; and that therefore the authorities did not prevent it."—London News. A Lawyer's Harvest. It is the man with the idea who develops his opulency today. A lawyer of this city not long since in three months persuaded all the manufacturers of a certain staple product in the eastern states to form a combine. He visited all of them and finally got them together and drew the articles of agreement. He joined about twenty-five concerns into a combination, with a capitalization of over a million. At the outset he claimed 3 per cent., and his realization for his three months' work was $80,000. This is a fact. Two New Haven concerns are in the combination.—New Haven Palladium.

For orerayear there have been ru-' mors regarding the existence of a large serpent at Lake Kenosha, three miles west of Danbury, but every one wfto heard the story received it with incredulity. But the rumor grew in spite of skepticism, and the thoughtless were forced finally to admit that perhaps there vras something in it. •Friday Edward M. Baldwin and George Downs were fishing in the lake. Both are elderly business men and opposed to notoriety in every way. They were engaged in hauling in fish, when suddenly to the west of them a huge head poked itself out of the water and contemplated the fishermen. This was thirty feet away from their boat. One of the men said it was not unlike the head of a pug dog, but dark brown or black in color. Both the fishermen lost interest in their fishing and fastened their attention on the serpent. After viewing the fishermen for a few minutes the serpent moved toward them some ten feet, and his entire body was seen on the surface of the water. It was from fifteen to twenty feet long and moved slowly and easily, in the manner of a huge snake. It took a second view of the fishermen for a few seconds and then dived. The sight unnerved the fishermen at first, but they resolved to get a nearer look. They saw the serpent perhaps half a dozen times, but were unable to secure a closer inspection of it. The story has been corroborated with more particulars by John Clark, a hotel proprietor, Theodore Clark, the big box manufacturer, and many others who have seen the serpent. These men say the serpent is as thick as a dog's body.-— Cor. Hartford Courant. a asa We are still selling, 25 per cent, below cost, Former Now.
