A Mean Trick-.
"A lawyer defending a promissory
jij?te went to lunch, leaving bis books

room. The opposing counsel sneaked
back into the.room and changed the
places of all his bookmarks. In the
afternoon the lawyer, taking up his
books, referred the court to his author
ities. His lordship noted every "Volume
and page carefully and took the case
under consideration. In rendering his
opinion he said: ~"~
*T was inclined after hearing argu
ment of counsel, 'or defendant to non

to the^authorities quoted by counsel,
nobe of them bear on this case, and I
'am led to think that the gentleman has
.been willfully trying to insult tbe
court. He has referred me to an ac
tion of an Irishman who sued the pro
prietor of a monkey for damages for
; biting him, to a case of arson, one of
burglary, .two of petty larceny and
-thr^i. divorce cases, none of which
bears on an action to recover on a
promissory note. Perhaps the grossest

which are grouped those who have en

the handle of the cup points when it
has stopped turning is the winner of
the contents of the cup.
Whou the: winner has emptied the
cup then auother article, not always or
necessarily a soup or stew, is put into
it for the next winner. If. however,
the article is too large to put into the
cup-for instance, a walrus tusk or
seal hide or what else-then it may be
represented by something else. The
cup is then sent spinning again, and

They rate on the company's pay roll
ss third clerks. Unofficially, but more
correctly, they are known as mud
Jimmy Boynton was mud clerk on
the big side wheel steamboat ?tiena
Stanton, and he was proud of the fact.
Now, the chief clerk on a Mississippi
river boat is a dignitary of no mean
importance, while the second clerk is
almost as impressive an individual.
The mud clerk is thc youngster who
follows the foremost deck hand off tire
gangplank at every lauding and checks
the freight. When he jumps off the
gangplank he generally lands in mud
up to his knees. The reason why he
never receives Iiis rightful title of third
clerk is obvious.
Some men might not consider this
pleasant work, but lt suited Jimmie,
tie knew, too, that the way of a mud
clerk, if properly directed, leads to a
chief clerkship and eventually to a
post ns captain. Meantime he was a
happy go lucky sort of lad who was
liked hy every ono from-the captain
down to the negro deck hands, more
commonly known as "rousters."
On this particular evening he was nt
peace with himself, the world and eveu
the rousters who were unloading' the
cargo of cotton on the levee. Jimmy
was mechanically chocking the num
bers atop the bales, but a strange sort
of inner consciousness was drinking in
the beauty of the scene before him.
The setting sun had turned the muddy
waters to a sensuous, laving silver.
Just beyond the ripples made by the
slowly turning paddle wheels of the
boat In the reverse motion necessary to
counteract thc force of the current lay
a tiny Ishthd, formed by thc cutting in
two of a long, narrow sand bar. A few
cottonwood trees- nodded lazily on the
willful 'blt of land. . To his right the
old levee had crumbled away, and a
new ono had been built behind it. form
ing an artificial lake fringed with tall
cottonwood trees and gnarled stumps
of cypress. Across the stream the
mighty force of water had cut into an
island, and every time the boat passed
up and down the river the contour of
the bank had changed. Sometimes
only a foot or two had been sliced
away. Sometimes whole acres had dis
It was a marvelous power, was this
mother of -waters, and yet Jimmie
thought exultantly that he was master
of it. He could ride it. turn its force
into money, make it earn him position
and promotion. And, thinking thus, he
decided that he would nut trade jobs
just now with his own congressman.
And then she came un the scene, and
he suddenly discovered that it might be
desirable to bo a congressman alter all
and wear glossy boots and unstained
It all happened very suddenly-so
suddenly, in fact, that he stopped in the
midst of a mighty volley of very forci
ble language aimed at a lazy rouster,
dropped his stub of a pencil and, in
blissful ignorance of what he was do
ing, stood deliberately staring at the
dainty vision tripping up the gang
The vision wore something very fluf
fy and thin and blue, with something
thinner still at her throat and wrists,
something which fluttered about very
coquettishly when she turned her head
or lifted her skirts. And her broad flat
hat was wreathed in the pinkest of
pink roses. Jimmie had only one brief
glimpse, but he remembered quite dis
tinctly that the blue in her dress and
in her eyes matched perfectly, likewise
the pink in her hat and her lips.
Now, of course any authority on fash
ion could have informed Jimmie that
the vision was most badly dressed for
traveling, but to Jimmie "good form"
was an unknown quantity. Ile de
cided that tho vision must be a daugh
ter of a railroad president at least, and
probably had a million or two in her
own right. Having reached this deci
sion, he finished the volley of language,
picked up his pencil and resolutely
turned his back on the vision.
But visions such as Miss Lorena
Thomas possess a haunting quality.
The ladies' cabin, so called by courtesy,
lay at the other end of thc long, narrow,
oval expanse, but' Jimmie was thor
oughly convinced that Miss Thomas
could see his mud spattered garments
as he rushed through his report in
front of the clerk's desk. So expedir
tiously did he complete this task that
the Rena Stanton had not got under
full headway before Jimmie bolted into
his tiny stateroom in search of the only
other pair of 'trousers he possessed.
They : met at the supper table, and
when the meal was over Jimmie thank
ed his strfrs that, after all, he was only
the mud clerk.
Both the first and second clerk had
desk work before them, and Jimmie
had only a long, lazy evening on deck,
during which he could show Miss
Thomas the beauties of his river life.
There were moments when this pleas
ure palled, however. That was when
the soft, thin stuff at Miss Thomas'
neck and wrists fluttered with a par
ticularly elegant air or the pink roses
In her hat bent with languid dignity
in his direction. They seemed to Pi
mind him that daughters of railroad
presidents with their purple and fine
linen, which in this instance appeared
in the form of forgotmenot blue and
rose pink, were not for mud clerks,
even if the latter had flattering pros
pects. He had about decided to lead
up to the topic of her family when die
Kate Adams hove in sight, and they,
leaned against the rail while Jimmie'
discoursed upon the feats performed
by this the fastest boat on the river.
In truth. Jimmie's ambition had once
stopped with the captaincy of the Kate
Adams, but now he thought with a
sigh. "What ls the Kate Adams after
But he did not linger on the thought.
Everything happened too quickly. Miss
Thomas in her excitement han' climbed
up on the foot rail when the imperti
nent evening breeze took a fancy to the
pink crowned hat. Away it went.
There was a shrill shriek, and some
thing blue and fluttering bent ti little
too far over and then went after tho
hat. And after both went Jimmie.
it must be admitted tbat under the |
influence of a blanket, some bot grog g
and tho fulsome praise of one or two J
of his comrades Jimmie indulged in a

picture of a grateful railroad president^
a pink and blue vision with downcast]
eyes and a hrown eyed young man be
ing very magnanimous, but neverthe-;
less accepting a lifetime devotion in re- ;
turn for a cold plunge. Then the ef
fects of the grog wore off, anoVJImmiej
shook himself vigorously.
The next morning he stood diffident-j
ly in Miss Thomas' presence. Gone ?
were the blue frock with its lace frills]
and the beautiful rose crowned hat. A'
ycry sober, sad eyed young woman !
clad in a simple gingham dr?ss mur-;
mured her thanks.
Jimmie shifted from one foot to the^
other and tried to hide his embarrass-1
ment, but when Miss Thomas burst I
into tears he forgot differences of sta-'
tion and sat down beside her.
"Oh, I reckon you won't be any the]
worse for the ducking," he said by'
way of consolation, wishing he could,
take the sobbing figure in his arms and]
say something more comforting.

Take Your Time JEatlnff.
Here is an example that is worth re
membering and following. Horace
Fletcher writes of an experience that
he had while traveling on'a railway
with the proverbial twenty minutes
for dinner in which to satisfy a labor
ing man's appetite. There was an exr
cellent array of good things on the
lunch counter to eat and drink, and
from these he made'a selection rather
than attempt the regular dinner, He
chose plump ham 3audwiches, creamy
milk and a large piece of pie. The
twenty minutes was ample time for
disposing of sandwiches and milk,
while he had the pie put In paper to
give epicurean enjoyment on the train.)
He says: ?
"If I had put the pie and sandwiches
and the milk into my stomach in seven
or eight minutes, which, by actual ob
servation, Is the gluttonous rate of dis
patching a station meal, I would have
lost two-thirds of nutriment, more]
than one-half-of taste and taken on

Follsh women are renowned for their

The lady of position rises between ll

at 4 o'clock tho next morning. She
drives from one visit to another, but in
reality she is laboring all day- for pub

of. a library, a hospital, a sewing
school, is made to strengthen the Po-1

a charity committee, says George
Brandes, without taking some meas
ure, under that innocent pretext, for
the national benefit
As a consequence of this charm and
spirit, the women of Poland receive
from the men a courtesy amounting to
homage. Men always rise In a tram

She was rory pretty and very young

Arnold saw her sweet lips quiver and
a tear roll down, her cheek he felt an
irresistible desire to take her in his
arms and kiss and comfort her.
He had only known her a few days
and wondered how she would take it.
She would resent it probably and make
him feel like a fool. And there were
two young women walking' further

Arnold stopped to examine a shel),
