A FEW.AUSTRAUAN YARNS. .
(lly .XkIcs In tlio Austinlnslnii.)
It happened in n tovMiship north
of Adelaide. Tlio locnl lawyer had
bought a liorso rather low in condi
tion, and ho asked the local banker,
who says the smart tilings of the
township, to givo the bleed a name.
"H'm," said the banker, assuming
the knowing air which characterises
men skilled in horses. "Seems to
want ilbsh." " Well," said the law
yer, who always begrudges full as
sent to anything, "ho might want a
little flesh perhaps a pound or so."
" Oh," said the banker, " if that's nil,
there's a naino to your hand call
In former times lire insurance
companies used to nlllx to the build
ings upon which they took risks
plates more or less ornamental, and
which answered the double purpose
of advertising the extent of the com
pany's business nnd might perchance
stimulate a Arc brigadier or iv shnic
holdcr to especial offort if a confla
gration occurred. The following
story suggests the notion that it
might not be amiss for the componics
to indicate nowadays where there
risks existed. A squatter, who was
addicted to the frequent use of the
words "you see," had his woolshcd
burnt down. Shortly nfterwards he
observed written on one of his gates,
MJVIr. Macphairshon you sec, if
you had fed the swagmen you sec,
your woolshcd would not have been
burnt down you sec." Mr. M.,
awaro of his pcculiaiity, took out a
pencil and wrote underneath,
"Youfro a fool you sec. The
woolshcd was insured you see, and
we've built a better one with the
money you sec."
On therbanks of the Murray there
lives a rich wool-producer of High
land extraction, whoso education was
Badlyfncglected in his youth. Thus
to, his storekeeper: "Hae ye,bookit
that chaque to that man O'Shavor?"
"Yes, sir; certainly, sir." Squatter,
turning over the leaves (with book
,upside down), 'I canna seo it; ye'll
just book it again, Mac Duncan,
.tjook them tilings as aften qs yc think
o'them. Ye canna book them too
aftqn. If there's any mistake the
men will tell ye of it!"
A lady and her, son of somei 12
summers were visitors at a small
sheep station in New Zealand,, work
ed by tho owner himself. With the
latter the,boy frequently, went about
as attention was, required at differ
ent portions of tho property.. One
day they; set off together with a
bullock dray -tm, ,a comparatively
long, expedition! HtutwMhqHr-iifter-wards
tthe boy returnedfrhiinsclfv
The wife of the stntion-owhotlooking
up ,0s the lad approached exttaftned,
"There, I told Fred,(her busted)
the. bullocks could, never crops &u(tt
dy, Creek." Tqe visitor (astomV
eel), "IJow. can you tell .what ho it
doing?" "Easily enough. He has
sent your boy. back so as to be able
toi swear comfortably at the bul
locks." A New England' physician says
that if every family would keep a
box of mustard in the house, three
fifths of the doctors would starve.
We don't exactly see how ,that
Tfould, affect the doctors, but we
know that if a box of mustard were
the only, provisions in a house the
entire family, would starve.
IJE'LL.NEVER TELL THE-TRUTH AGAIN.
I. heard , a good story the other day
of a Brooklyn gentleman who is now
a member, of the State Assembly.
He belonged to a club in South
Brooklyn.to' .which a number of poli
ticians belong and every night there
was aygome of- poker at the rooms.

Whan he got home he (found his wife
sittitog up fr him,
'What has kept you out so late?"
the gentle Bp$uBo,iquired.
"Well, my dear, I. was down at
tho club and cot playing poker. I
was, out and couldn't leave till I got,
"Well, go to bed," suggested the
As soon as the poker player was
safely asleep his better-half put on
her street clothes.and proceeded to
the club house touscertain whethpr
or not her liege lord was telling the
truth. Arriving at tho house she saw
tho colored steward John by name.
"Has Mr. beenhereto-iiiglit?"
she OBkcd of tho dusky youth.
"What time did ho leave?"
John thought it would never do to
Bay about 6 o'clock in the morning,
bo with n view of smoothing things
over ho determined to tell a lie.
" 'Bout 11 o'clock, missis," ho re
plied. Tliero was fim ' ". , , ,
She rushed home at breakneck speed,
