"OFF MIT IIS READ."
A breathlessly-excited individual, says a
late number of the San Francisco " Morning
Call," rushed into the police office yesterday
and inquired for the chief. -
" What do you want of him I" inquired
an impassive officer.
" I vants," said he with a Teutonic accent,
"I vants ein baperto kill a tam tog vot pites
me in te leg."
"Ah, you wish an order of execution is
sued against a vicious canine," said the
"No. I tusant vant no such ting. I vants
a baper to tell me to kill te tam bup. lie
pites my leg so pad, I have got to hydro
phope und will kill him, or goes mat, too."
" Ah, now I see," said the impassive tem
perament; "you require authority to pro
ceed with force of arms against the danger
" Mein Got, no-dat ish not what I vants.
I vants to Jeaf to give me license to kill te
dog. I vants him to make me baper so ven
I kills to tog he can nicht go inter de bolice
court and swear against me."
"The dog I"
"Nein-not te tog-to man vot owns to
tog. You see if I kills him-"
"What, the man?"
"Nein-te tog. Und to man sues me for
to brice of to tog, den I vants ter law on
mein side, d'yer see?"
" Oh, yes !" said the officer, who was
quietly chuckling at the caution evinced by
the German, and intent on exhausting his
patience, " then you want to get a warrant
to arrest the man who owns the dog, so the
animal may not again attack you."
"No, no! Got for tam, you gith every
thing by the tail," cried lager beer, who be.
gan to think the officer was quinzing him.
I dink you vants to make chokes of me.
Tunder and blitzen ? I vants shustees, not
chokes. I vants to cut to tan tog's head
off, and if shustice will not give me a baper,
I cuts his head off anyhow."
And the lover of sourkrout started to
leave the Hall; but meeting the " Jeaf uv
Bolice" at the door, he conversed with him
in the German dialect, make known his
wants and received an order to execute the
As he was going out, he met the impas.
"All right?" he inquired.
"Yah, all right. I goes shtraight off to
owner of te tog und kills him."
" What, the owner I"
"No, de tog. You make tame fool of
yourself py saying tog ven I means man,
und when I means man you say tog. Now
you gone to ter tuyvel!" and the German
incontinently hurried away to mete out ven
geance to the animal who had crossed him
in his " glorious path."
POPPING THE QUESTION.
Mehitable Merit, a young lady of thirty
nine who never had a chance to change the
alterative character of her name, was seated
over the fire ini her little sitting room, wvhen
a knock was heard, and who should make
his appearance but Solomon Periwinkle.
" Goodness, gracious," thought she, " I
wonder what he's come for-can it be-"
But we wvon't divulge the thought that
passed through the old maid's mind.
R ow do you do, Miss Merit?"
"Pretty wvell, thank you, Mr. Periwinkle.
Not but [ feel a little lonely now and theni."
"You see as I wvas coming by, I thought
I'd step in and ask you a question about
"I suppose," thought Mehitable, " he
means about the state of my heart."
" The fuet is," said Solomon, who was
rather bashful, " I feel a little delicate about
asking, but I hope y'ou wvon't think it strange!'
0 O11o," simpered Mehitable, " I don't
think it at all strange, and in faict I have
been expecting it."
"0O," said Solomon, rather surprised, '- I
believe you have in your possession some
thing of mine."
"His heart ho means," said Mehitable
aside. " Well, sir," she continued, al'oud,
" it may afford you pleasure to learn that
you have mine in return. It is fully and eni
tirely your own."
"What ! I got your umbrella !" exclaim
od Solomon, in amazement. " I think you
must be mistaken, and 'I don't think I'd
like to ex~chanige mie for it, for miiie was
given n e." " I beg your pardoin," said the
discomfited old maid, " but I mnade a mis
take. I quite forgot your umbrella which
I borrowed some time ago. hlere it is, I
was thinking of something else."
"If," said Solomon, " there's anythiiig of
yours that I have got, I shall be happy to

" Wife, s'pank that boy."
"I shan't do it."
" Why ?"
" Because there is no reason."
"No reason !-yes there is; spank him, I
"I won't do any such thing."
"fle'S too smart-"
"That comes of your marrying me-"
" Howv so? What do you mean?"
"I mean just this, by boy is smarter than
his father, and you can't deny it."
" That's queer talk, and I wish-"
" I don't care wvhat you wish; the boy
knows enough to see that a man, printer or
no printer, can't live. on nothing. I should
think you'd be ashamed to cheat the poor
printer, and then-"
