"It's a peculiar thing the tricks that luck will now and then play a chap," said a prominent physician recently. "Take, for instance, the breaking of bones in one's body. Did you ever stop and think how very many hard and high falls a man can have, light on rocky ground with half his body twisted under the other ha.f, so to speak, and come off with not even a scratch? Then, again, a fellow will just trip over his own foot and, falling to the ground, break a leg or an arm. A good many will say it all depends on how one alights, but that seems to have absolutely nothing to do with it, as I have seen a man alight In a certain way from a high fail and never injure himself, and then again have I seen a second chap alight in the same identical way and break a leg and an arm." Columbus Dispatch. Diplomatic Reticence. The social reformer was paying a visit to the convicts in the peniten-tlary and asking them various que tions. ''And what are you doing here, my friend?" he said to a good looking man In the shoeshop. "Making shoes," was the reply that discouraged any further Inquisition io that direction. Discharging the Cook. "Well, cook's gone at last, John," said Mrs. B. "Good. You must have had more courage than I gave you credit for to discharge her." "I didn't do it. She discharged herself. I flattered her so about her cooking that she thought she was too good to stay with us, and off she went." Music Hath Charms. "Waiter!" called the customer in the restaurant where an orchestra was playing. "Yes, sir." "Kindly tell the leader of the orchestra to play something sad and low while I dine.

' An English writer tells the story of hi first sixpence, which he earned by an unpremeditated joke. His father bad been for twenty-seven years engaged in a suit in chancery and had just gained his cause. The expenses of the suit, however, had swallowed up the entire estate, the residue being merely 3s. Cd. The writer says: My father i:ged the seven sixpences on our breakfast table. "My boy," said ho, "see what comes of going to law in Great Britain! Your mother has told you that I have won my suit In chancery?" . "Yes, papa." "Well, then, look! That is all I get sf it," and ha pointed grimly at the sixpences. I opened wide my eyes. "AH you get of the whole suit?" I echoed with n puzzled air, convinced that a suit in chancery was composed, as other suits are, of a coat, waistcoat and trousers. "Why. pnpa, those are only the buttons!" It was this deplorable joke that earned me my sixpence, for my father, laughing, toss3d me one across the table, and I rushed off with it like a dog pelted with a bone.

North St. F DEATH BY THE HEROIC ACT OF 8RAKEMAN Thompson Is In Line For Cov eted Decoration of Carnegie Medal FROM UNDER THE VERY WHEELS ITALIAN BABE WAS SNATCHED AND LIFE SAVED SEVENTH WARD BRIEFS To save a small Italian child from what seemed Instant death; Brakeman Thompson, of . the Pennsylvania branch between the Junction and Oil City, risked his own life by leaping in front of his train near Gardner avenue late yesterday afternoon, and dragged from the rails a three-year-old child. .The incident occurred while Thompson's crew was making up a train at Gardner avenue prior to leaving for Oil City. Several cars had been shifted down the track some distance to where there is a crossing that leads to the Greer tin mill. Here they were left standing until the crew returned to the Junction for a number of cars that made up part of the train. On their return to Gardner avenue and while backing down to the cars that were left on the siding, an Italian driving a grocery wagon that seemed ready to fall apart, appeared on the crossing directly in front of the train, his horse became frightened and while trying to gain control of the animal lost his hold on the child that was riding with him. No sooner was the child out of his grasp than she fell from the wagon onto the tracks. Thompson, seeing the danger, gave his engineer the signal to slow down and when within a few" feet of the babe he leaped onto the track, grabbed the child in his arms, and sprang from the track just in time to escape being hit. The train crashed into the wagon damaging it to some extent. Thompson's deed was one of genuine courage and he is being highly complimented by his fellows. TO HOLD P1CWS.
