AN INSOLUBLE MYSTERY.
Governor Pennypacker of Pennsylvania was
reviewing the State militia at Gettysburg. A
young staff officer described to him In a low
voice some unimportant error that had been
made. "But as to the cause of the error, sir." ha
said, "that is a mystery."
Governor Pennypacker smiled.
"If it is a mystery." he said, "it Is like th<?
pickled pork disaster tha: befell two Pennsyl
vania Dutchmen. Hans and Fritz.
•These two men bought a lot of pickled pork
in partnership. They put it in a barrel, and
stored It away in the cellar of Hans's home.
Now, Hans, though a Pennsylvania Dutchman,
was dishonest. The combination ia rare.
"Well, the morning after the deal tn pickled
pork, Fritz met Hans on the road.
" 'Good morning. Hans,' he said- 'Is there
any news about our pickled pork?*
" 'Fritz.' Hans answered gravely, 'there la
news, and bad news. A strange thing has hap
pened. It Is a mystery to me."
•' "Well. Hans, tell me all about it.' said 3*rttx.
■ 'Fritz, my friend, it was like this." said Hans.
"This morning I went down cellar to get a piece
of pork for my breakfast, and I put my hand
down In the barrel, and I felt around In the
brine, and there was no pork tLere. It waa all
gone all gone completely. So then I turned up
the barrel, and, as true as you are alive, the
rats had eaten a hole clean through the bottom
ar.d dragged the pork all out."
"Fritz was amazed and stunned.
" 'Why didn't the brine run out of the holer*
■ *Ah. Frttx,' aald the other, that's the mys
tery. That's the znyttary.' -
