Then I saw the cause of their amuse

A GRATEFUL HOUND.
N Stelnway Avenuo to-day I saw a peddler selling bananas from
his wagon, behind which, as It was drawn slowly along tho
street, marched a largo hound. "Ripe bananas, ripo bananas I "

to waken tho dead. I inquired how he acquired his assistant, which so
ably backed up tho pother ho made in offering his wares for sale, V

Owing to the tom-up condition of

It is Impossible, because of the coal
shortage, for the Stapleton Coal Com
pany, for which I work, to make deliv
eries to alt thoso who ire badly In need
of fuel. The result Is that many people
como to the yard, buy a few bags of
coal and carry It away In express wag
ons, pushcarts and autos. But the
queerest sight I ever saw was when an
undertaker alighted from a white hearse
that stopped at the yard, bought some
bags of coal, placed them In the hearse
and drove solemnly away. Floyd S.
