Not Such a Hot Speech.
A candidate for congress had been
making a speech in one of the towns
of his district where he was not well
known personally, and in the evening
while waiting for a train he strayed
Into a butcher's shop and, without
saying who he was, began to pump the
butcher to find out how he stood.
"Did you hear that speech this after-
noon?" he inquired after some general
*'Yes," replied the butcher, "I was
"What do you think of it?"
"Pshaw!" said the honest butcher
fPve made a better speech than that a
hundred times, trying to sell 15 cents'
worth of soup bones."
The candidate concealed his identity

It Is agreed among anthropologists
that "taking aim" is a human charac
teristic that even the anthropoid apes
cannot be said to share. Apes and
monkeys frequently throw nuts and
sticks, sometimes with unpleasant con
sequences to others, but they show lit
tie or no ability to take accurate aim
The baboon is said to excel somewhat
in this respect, but still it would nevei
pass for a marksman. Accuracy ol
eye and the judgment of direction and
distance that are involved in real aim
ing have been developed only by man
and are among the tokens of his intel
lectual superiority.New York Press.

mornings when he and Mrs. Gribbei
