mings, who yas at that time a sub
editor on the Tribune, of which Gree
ley was owner and editor-in-chief.
The interview took place in the par
B lor. Cummings kept his hat in his
hand until he was inside the room;
then, dropping it on the table, he and
Ins chief sat down opposite each o,th
cr, and were soon -deep in constilta
In the midst of their conversation
Mrs. Greeley walked briskly into the
rdoin,- smiled pleasantly at Mr. fG's
caller, and then her facial thcrmom
ctcr suddenly dropped to thirty lclow
zero as she caught sight of the hat on
the "table. For the fraction of a sec- J
ond she allowed her gaze to rest up- ,
on the offending headgear, and then
stepping quickly over to the table she
caught up the hat and flungit out Qf
the open window into the yard. '
("Why, Mother, you mustn't 'do1 i
thai!" exclaimed Mr. Greeley. "What '
will Amos think?"
i p j
'Well, then, keep your hat off the
table!" was the tart reply. "I told
yqu,,jrnot over half an hour ago, wlicn
I threw it out of the window,' I'd do it
- evjery time I found it here."
)rYcs, Mother, I know' you did,"
cliucklc'd'Mr.' Grcc'lcy, "so I clidnH
bring it back in. Tt was Mr. Cum
mings' hat you threw out this timel"
Then, turning to his caller, he said
with another chuckle, as Mrs. G.
hajstily vanished from the room: "I
'' forgot to tell you, Amos, that Mrs.
Greeley is trying to break mc of the
habit of leaving my hat lying around
on the centre-table."
'Never mind," said -Cummings dry
ly: "I've found it out. The next thing
will be to find my hat when I want to
wear it home."
But he had no trouble about that.
Mrs. Grccly was nowhere visible when
thc interview was over, but bpth hats
were found hanging in their proper
places on the lwll-rack, and there was
ab'out 'them (especially the one be
longing to the future Congressman)
a well-brushed look which seemed to
say: "With th oologies of Mrs. G."
WHEN THE COMMUNITY '

Mr. Leslie, M, Show, who used tqf be
th,e favorite son of Iowa and who
can't 'toe a prodigal yet, because pu
i don't hear of any fatted calves being
QQokcd for him out in Manilla, Iowa

MSftier Shaw (no symbolism in the
middle name) says that out his old
way the people met the panic with
something that, though Mr. Shaw
doesn't so describe it, must have been
a combination of the courage of con
viction in their heads and the fear of
God in their hearts. He says that in
a little town in Clinton County, where
there was only one bank, and where
that bank seemed likely to fail, the
banker it was a private bankjust
closed his doors and hung out a s:gn

J ALL WIND.
I lii an obscure country chapel ' a
young minister had, as he thought,
preached witl considerable unction.
He had used in his sermon, for an il
lustration of storm and peace, the
storm on the Lake of Galilee. That
storm was depicted as one of light
ning and thunder, and rain and wind.
As he came out of the chapel one of
the members tackled him in the midst
of the people. He began by saying:
"That was a wonderful description
of thine of the storm; the only thing
about it was, it wasn't true. Who
told thee it thundered and lightened
"Why," said the preacher, "those
arc the natural accompaniments of a
,4' Ah,5' said he, "but if thee had rca'l
thy Bible thee would.havc seen that it
was a storm. of wind, just like thine."
f THE CITRUS INDUSTRY.
The citrus industry in Arizona is
bidding fair, from present indications,
to become an importan' one, and it is
said" that no one industry in the Salt
River valley has received such an
impetus as that of organge culture.
Over a hundred carloads of oranges
. wcce marketed in the East from Ari
zona this year, which amount is very
much in excess of shipments of any
geason since the industry was first
sjard'in that State, and the growers
by judicious grafting have so im
proved the quality of the fruit as to
cnKMc it to rank among the finest
dftd"" oranges on the market?.
Small shipments ofjemons and grape
fruit have also been made this year.
So great have been the returns
from orchards this year and so emi
nently satisfactory the prices received
from shipments to the various mar
kets, that not only arc those living in
what is known as the "Orange Belt"
turning their attention to the planting
of young orchards but much capital
is being put into the business by
homescckcrs and capitalists from out
side of Arizona. Interstate Grocer.
HOW TO GET POORER
We hear a great deal about gct-rich-quick
schemes, but if you want
to get poor quick go into Wall street
without a level head or a lot of ex
perience; play the races, take a flyer
in the schemes you sec -advertised, in
mines and oils and real estate not
that they arc all bad, but most of
them arc not good.
Some time ago a New 'York man
discharged a valuable cmiployc be
cause he played! the races. When
asked if he thought gambling wrong,
"It isn't so much that, but I am
convinced that, mam, who would H
.make thc loose, one-sided contract H
rcquiPcd by a book-maker s not com- H
pctcnt to take care of his ovn inter M
ests or those of anybody else." jH
HE GOT A LIFT. M
'Hello, Turnips 1" said an arrogant H
young man to a farmer driving along H
a. country road. "Give a fclldw a lift H
to Newton?" Without waiting for a H
reply he jumped into the cart: "T H
might as well ride with you as walk. ' H
After two or three miles had been H
covered, the young man paused for a H
moment in his chatter, and remarked: H
"It's more of a distance to .Newton H
than I supposed." H
"It is a good distance," answered H
the farmer. H
Another twenty minutes passed, and H
then the young man inquired: H
"About how far is it to Newton?" H
"Well," replied the farmer "keep- H
in' straight on the way we're going H
now I sh'd say 'twould be a matter H
o' twenty-five thousand miles or so; H
but if you was favorable t' gcttin' out H
o' my cart and walkin' it back, it isn't H
very much above eight miles." H
