A girl who had been very clever
at college came home the other
day and said to her mother: "I
have graduated but now I wish to
take up psychology, r?hllologv

said her mother, "I have arranged! ?
for you a more thorough coarse iu

and pick that hen."
We regretted exceedingly that
it was impossible for us to attend
the picnic of the Hussars at Lan
ham Spring. Those who have at
tended these annual functions for
years report the largest crowd ever
seen on such an occasion. All
who have expressed themselves in
our bearing have been loud in the
praises of Capt. Evans and his
men. It was iu every sense a suc
cess. Nothing marred ;he pleas
ure of the occasion.
Au exchange says a farmer
asked a leading lawyer to bring
suit against a man who owea him
$50. The lawyer said: "What's
the use? It will cost you more
than $50 to win the case. This may
seem strange advice ; but my
friend, an honest lawyer is the
noblest work of God". Thp farmor
learned next day that the lawyer'
was retained by the man he wan
ted to sue. He went back lo his
plodding with the remark. "Well,
I guess! An honest lawyer may be
the noblest work of God ; I know
he's the scarcest".
