A alean Trick.
A. lawyer defending a promissory
note went to lundi, leaving lils books
and citations on the table Tn the court
jropm. The opposing counsel sneaked
back into the room and changed the
places of all his bookmarks. In the
^afternoon the lawyer, laking up his
i 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:
"I- was inclined after hearing argu
ment of counseJ. for defendant to non
suit, plaintiff,, but I find, after referring
to the-authorities quoted by counsel,
none of them bear on this case, and I
'am lcd to think that the gentleman has
been willfully trying to insult tbe
court He has referred me to an ac
tion of an Irishman wbo 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?ev divorce cases, none of which
bears on an action to recover on a
promissory note. Perhaps the grossest
insult to the court is referring to
.Duckworth versus Boozyman,' an ac
tion charging defendant with breach
o?- promise. Judgment for plaintiff

They rate on the company's pay roll
ns third clerks. Unofficially, but more
correctly, they are known as mud
Jimmy Boynton was mud clerk on
the big side wheel steamboat Rena
Stanton, and he was proud of the fact.
Now, tiie chief clerk on a .Mississippi
river boat is a dignitary of no mean
importance, while the second clerk is
almost as impressive an individual.
Thc mud clerk is the youngster who
foilows the foremost deck hand off tbfe
gangplank at every lauding and checks
tho freight. When he jumps off the
gangplank he. generally lands in mud
up to his knees. The reason why he
never receives his rightful title of third
clerk is obvious.
Some men might uot consider this
pleasant work, but It suited Jimmie.
He knew, too, that the way of a mud
clerk, if properly directed, loads to a
chief clerkship and eventually to a
post as captain. Meantime lie was a
happy go lucky sort of lad who was
liked by every ono from-tho captain
<lown to th?; negro deck hands, more
commonly known as "ronsters."
On this particular evening he was at
peace with himself, the world and even
the ronsters who were unloading' the
cargo of cotton on the levee. Jimmy
was mechanically chocking the num
bers atop tho 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 the force of thc current lay
a tiny island, formed by the 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
lt was a marvelous power, was this
mother of -?raters, 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 not trade jobs
just now with his own congressman.
And then she came on the scene, and
he suddenly discovered that it might be
desirable to be a congressman after all
and wear glossy boots and unstained
It ali happened very suddenly-so
suddenly, iu 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 aud, 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 thiu 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 lier 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 quanti.ty. Ile de
cided that the vision must be a daugh
ter of a railroad president at least, and
probably had a million or two in her
own right. Having roached this deci
sion, he finished thc 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 tho long, narrow,
oval expanse, but Jimmie was thor
oughly convinced that Miss Thomas
could see his mud spattered garments
as he rushed through bis report in
front of the clerk's desk. So expedi
tiously did he complete this task that
the Rena Stanton bad* 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 tito meal was over Jimmie thank
ed his stxfrs that, after all, he was only
the mud clerk.
Both the first aud 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 wns when
the soft, thin stuff nt 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 re
mind him that daughters of railroad
presidents with their purple and fine
linen, which in this instance appeared
in the form of forgctruenot 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 wheh the
Kate Adams hove in sight, and they,
leaned against the rall while Jimmie'
discoursed upon the Xeats performed I
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

There was a shrill shriek, and some
thing blue and fluttering bent a little
too far over and then went after thc
hat. And after both went Jimmie.

Tul:e Your Time .Eat in*.
Here is an example that ls 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 din uer in which to satisfy a labor
ing man's appetite. There was an ex?
cellent array ot 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 sandwiches, 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 saysr ?
"If 1 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 -ould have
lost two-thirds of nutriment, more
than one-half <of taste and taken on
twenty-four hours of discomfort, pos
sibly inviting a cold and creating an
'open door' for any migrating microbes
that were floating about In my atmos
phere looking for strained tissue or
fermenting food in which to build their
disease nests." jj
Observation proves that you cannot!
get morb nutriment into your stomach I
than salivation prepares, "gulp" though jj
you may, but you eau take in a load ofJ
disease possibilities In trying to force
or evade proper salivation.-Cooking
Women In Poland.

The lady of position rises between ll
and 12 in the forenoon and goes to bed j
at 4 o'clock the next morning. She
drives from one visit to another, but in
reality she ls laboring all day- for pub
lic interests. Everything, the founding
of a librar}', a hospital, a sewing
school, is made to strengthen the Po
lish cause. Four ladles do not meet on
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
car to give a lady a seat. At any pub
lic place a chair may be ruthlessly de
manded of even the most distinguished
official present, with the suflleient ex-j
planatlon, "for a lady/'
