Upper Deg H A good story is told of how Judge Ford used to examine candidates for the bar. Everybody in the northwest, who lived here in the days just before the railroad, remembers Judge Ford. The judge used to adjourn court occasionally in Algona to turn out and pitch for a game of ball on the public square. What the judge did evenings is not a matter of public record, but if anyone could sit up later, hold more, or show down a better hand, ho is not generally credited with it. Over at Sioux City a young man named Pel- muldor wanted to be a lawyer, arid the judge sot an evening for examination. The candidate appeared in duo season, and what happened is thus related to a Journal man by a spectator: Judge Ford at once stated to Mr. Pel- mulder that it was customary for an applicant for admission to the bar to set up something, and requested of Mr. Pelmulder that he proceed to furnish the wherewithal to celebrate the event in the usual and customary manner and in a wa,y_ to be remembered. Mr. Pelmulder, in bis anxiety for the coming certificate, complied with the request and soon i-eturned with a bottle of nice wine made by some of his Holland friends, and this with a glass he handed to Judge Ford, which was accepted by him with much dignity and many thanks. The judge proceeded to pour out some of its contents into the glass and drank it, smacked his lips and pronounced it very fine. He continued to pour and drink till he got away with all the bottle contained, then with much suavity of manner, turned to the applicant and said: ''Mr. Pelmulder, perhaps these other fellows would like a little." The yet unborn attorney looked the crowd over with an expression showing that he was in deep trouble over the question of supply and demand, and a feeling no doubt like that of a boy who has poured about a hogshead of water into a gopher hole with no signs of its filling up. He went out, however, and returned with bottles enough for each of the rest of them and the contents of these soon disappeared. To the iiston- ishment of Pelmulder, the court and its tribunal of examiners wanted more. Judge Ford then requested of Mr. Pelmulder that he get a deck of cards, which were brought in, and all hands except the clerk were, soon deeply absorbed in a game of "cinch," while Pelmulder went out and brought in more wine. After amusing themselves until long past midnight, the examining committee and companions arose ready to depart, when the applicant in much apparent distress of mind remarked that he hand't been examined yet, \vhen Judge Ford said, "d the examination; you won't know any more after it than you did before," arid this coterie of legal lights departed for Capt. Wyatt's hotel. It nmy not be of record, but tradition has it that the next morning an elaborate report was handed in recommending Mr. Pelmul- der for admission, and never was Judge Ford more dignified and courteous than when he administered to the clerk the solemn obligations of attorney. Uncle Jelle wore a browl smile for many days thereafter. How to Visit tho World's Fair.

Howland, of Nev York, is a famous story teller. In abun danco and variety his collection is "equalec by few and surpassed by none." Mr. Howland is essentially an after dinner story teller. He fills his after dinner speeches with new and eke with old. Here are some samples of his stories: . THE DIGNITARY AND THE BULL. Once there was a very important state official of California who thought everybody knew him or ought to know him. One day he was walking through a field when a bull addressed him in an undertone and made for him with its head down and horns hi a position to raise him. Ho was a state official, a man of dignity and political power and of natural pomposity. But bo ran. He ran surprisingly well. He ran even better than he did for office, and he got to the fence first. Ho clambered over, out of breath and dignity, and found the owner of the bull calmly contemplating the operation. "What do you mean, sir," asked the irate official, "by having an infuriated animal like that roaming over the field?" "Well, I guess the bull has some right in ths field," said the farmer. "Right? Do you know who I am, sir?" gasped the official. The farmer shook his head. "I am General Blank." "Well, why in thunder didn't you tell the bull?" THE MAN AND TIIE TOMATO CAN. A certain man's wife heard him in the Hdjoinii'.jLj pantry making explosive remarks. "What are you doing, my dear?" the asked. "Opening a can of tomatoes," he answered. "What are you opening it with?" she asked sweetly. "With a knife," ho replied savagely. "Did you suppose I was opening it with my teeth?" "No. From the language which you used I thought you were opening it with prayer." A HIGH PRICE FOR CONVICTION. Conkling had defended a man who was on trial for arson. He had been convicted below, and on appeal tho conviction was affirmed and Conkling rendered his bill, which was questioned by the man's friends. Conkling was rather new at the bar. He called upon Mr. O'Conor. He said: "There is Johnson, now, whom I defended in a hard fought trial and argued the case on appeal at the general term. To be sure he was convicted, and the conviction was affirmed. But I hud a great deal of trouble, gave my best services in the matter, and I only charged him $600, and his friends decline to pay my bill. Don't you think the charge is reasonable and fair?" Mr. O'Conor turned hi his chair and said; "Well, Conkling, I have no doubt that you did the best you could. You had a severe trial. You exercised your best efforts in the higher court and $600 is not a largo bill, but I have no doubt he could have been convicted for a great deal less money." THE LORD AND THE DAISY. A Sunday school teacher was trying to impress upon his pupils tho care of the Deity for all living things, great or small, and, getting to the peroration of his address, ho said: "The Lord, who made the mountain, mude the little blade of grass. The Lord, who made the oceau, made the pebble on the shore. The Lord, who made me, made a daisy." THE SAGACIOUS BOY. You never can catch a Yankee boy. You never can corner him. A gentleman traveling in tho country at Stoddard, N. H., where it is all rooks and bowlders and abandoned farms—the old farmhouses going to ruin—saw a boy of twelve or fourteen hoeing In a cornfield on the side of what would be pasture land on anybody else's farm. The corn was rather poor looking. Tho traveler reined in his horse and spoke to the boy. He said to him, "Your corn looks rather small." "Well," said tho boy, "we planted dwarf corn." "Well, it looks yellow, poor and thin." "Well, we planted yellow corn." "Well," said tho traveler, "I don't mean that. It don't look as if you would get more than half a crop." "Idon't expect tof I pi anted it on shares." A DEMAND FOR QUICK ACTION. A man was working in a field with two of his sons. One of them was at work in one part of the field and the old man, with the other, was working down in a marsh. All of a sudden the youth who had been with his father win up to the other and cried: "Come down and help the old man out. He has got mired iu tho bog." "How deep is he in?" "Up to his auklus." "Well, there's no hurry." "Yes, there is. He's in head first." AND HE CHOSE DEATH. A certain artistic immigrant on arriving in the harbor of New York saw the statue of Liberty. He asked one of the crew, "Is that the statue of Liberty?" "Yes, that is Liberty." "Then give me deathl" and ho plunged overboard. THE POWER OP DISCIPLINE. This is historical ami illustrates the devotion of Sheridan to Grant. Sheridan and Grant were traveling on A steamboat together with other officers. Among the passengers was a young Englishman who used to tftke a hand at pokw with tjtoe,rn, Tb« usual Umtt was fifty What is the Difference Why, bless you, there is just as much difference in stores as there is in people. When you go into a nice, clean, well-kept grocery house you see the difference at a glance. The goods are fresh, free from dirt, inviting to the eye and palate alike. How is it in an old, dingy, barracks-like place where things are thrown together in a chaotic jumble? There is absolutely no comparison tq be made between such a place and Our Elegant Stock and Fine Room in the new State Bank block, on State street. If cleanliness is . akin to G-odliness, then surely we are in it with the best in all > the land. Added to our fine grocery stock you always find the the latest and handsomest in Crockery, Queensware, Lamps, Lamp Goods, etc. An inspection tells the story. New State Bank Block, Algona, Iowa. W. F. CARTER. cents. The Englishman one day wanted, to go out and light a cigar and asked General Sheridan to play his hand while he was gone. It was lour jacks pat. The Englishman when he returned asked General Sheridan how it had panned out. "Oh, the general bet me fifty cents," said Sheridan, "and I called him and won the pot." The Englishman looked in amazement. "Well," he said, "I have heard of military discipline, but I 1 never heard of it going that far." Mr. Howland has a knack of hinting at a story by giving the point of one, leaving the hearer to fill out the rest. Some examples of that follow: To censorious critics we reply in the language of the old verger of St. Mary's, Oxford, who on being congratulated by his rector on his constant attention to duty replied, "I have heard every sermon that has been preached from this pulpit for fifty years, and, thank God, I am a Christian still." The comments and advice of outsiders ore never particularly appreciated, and remind one of the toast given at a village firemen's ball by a crusty old bachelor, "Our bravo firemen—may they be like our old maids, ever ready, yet never wanted." If I should assume to interpose my ideas I should be like the gentleman who met a friend and was asked what he had been doing lately. "Lecturing in Boston," he replied. "I am glad of it," said his friend. "I always did hate those Bostonians." Wo are here present in no vain spirit of boasting, though if our right to exalt ourselves were questioned we might reply in the words of the American girl who was shown sume cannon at Woolwich arsenal the sergeant in charge remarking, "Yoii know we took them from you at Bunkei Hill." "Yes," she replied, "I see you've got the cannon, but I guess we've got th« Speaking of a temperance lecture: "It would have been a great success," said one of the principal workers, "if our chairman hadn't been so absentminded." "Why, what did he do?" "Well, he tried to blow the foam off a glass of water." A small boy's beautiful sister saw him Standing on his head on the lawn. "I wouldn't do that if I were you, Jimmy," said she; "I wouldn't." "Wouldn't?" he replied; "by Jocks, you couldn't."—New York World. THE JOHN PAUL LUMBER GO. SUCCESSORS TO J. J. WILSON.
