An Irishman, on seeing a notice in a
haberdasher's window, one day which
ran as follows : Everything seid here
by yard," entered and asked the man
of tlie shop if he sold buttermilk.
"Yes,'' was the answer. ''Then give nie
a yard," said Pat. "All right," said
the mm; and dipping his Unger into
a dish of milk at his side, he drew it a
yard in length, on the counter "Any
thing else?" he querripd, triumphant
ly, of Pat. "No," said Pat: "just row]
it up in a piece of paper, and, FM take
it with mt?."

Rashly importunate, gone to his death."
"Our Country Cousin" a bright play
of "The Old Homestead" type will be
shown at the Opera House on Thurs
day night of this week. The scenery
is realistic and there are some exciting
scenes. There is a railroad scene ia
which real switches, telegraph poles, a
derrick, etc., are used, while a train
200 feet in length makes its flight
across? the stage in six seconds. In the
farm scene a threshing machine is in
troduced which adds to the realism of
HIP play. Frank Jones, the original Si
Perkins, is inimitable as Jason Wheat
ley, the country cousin. He is ably sup
ported by Miss Lillian Walton, as
Dorothy Churchill, his sweetheart. J.
G. Cailiy, as James the servant, does
some clever acting.
\ gentleman traveling in Texas met
on the road a wagon drawn by four
oxen driven by a countryman, who, in
addition to the skillful crack of the
whip, was vociferously encouraging
his horned horses in this fashion :
"Haw Presbyterian." "Gee Baptist,"
"Whoa Episcopalian," "Get up Meth
odist." The traveler stopped the driv
er, remarking to him that he had
strenge names for ms oxen, and he
would like to know why he thus called
them. Said the driver : "I call this ox
Presbyterian, because he's true blue
and never fails, pulls through dilHcul
ties and holds to the end. 1 call this
ox Baptist, because he is always after ?
water and it seems though he'd never
drink enough, then again he won't eat
with the rest. 1 call this ox Episcopa- '
lian, because he has a mighty way of
holding up his head, and if the yoke
gets a little too tight he tries to kick
and draw clear out of the track. I call
this ox Methodist, because he puffs and
blows as he goes along, and you'd think
he was pulling all creation but he
don't pul? a pound unless you continu
ally stir him up."
