A Queer Lesson.
"On the slow and cheap ships," said
u purser. "the s?uvenir thief does no
hann, put on a famous Atlantic liner,
where records are broken and tiptop
prices abound, the amount of stuff that
disappears ls shocking.
"Only things with the boat's name
on-champagne glasses, ink wells, curl
ing tongs, buttonhooks, and so forth.
And what are we to do about it?
"We had an American ^peeress
aboard last voyage. The day we reach
ed New York a stewardess came to me
"'Oh, Mr. Meet, I just seen Lady
Blank's cabin trunk, and she's taken
two of our finest silver iuk wells!'
"Here was a quandary, eh? The
captain, was called in, and he settled
the matter in the unsatisfactory way
such things are usually settled.
"'We must teach Lady Blank a les
son,' he growled. 'At the same time
scandal must be avoided.' He thought
a moment, then said to the stewardess:
Take one of the ink wells and leave
the other. That'll show her.'"-Phil
Crafty Master Fox.
A fox was one day seen coming out
of a pile of stones near the water
side. He hid in the heather for
awhile and then pushed out some
thing on the water, which proved to
be a bunch of moss. The wind took
it into the middle of the lake and
blew it past some ducks sitting on the
Burface. Having watched his venture
for perhaps ten minutes with appar
ent satisfaction and observed that it
neared the ducks without arousing
their suspicious, our friend began to
collect another and larger bunch of
moss, which he allowed to float in the
same direction, but this time he swam
behind it, taking care to show only his
eyes and nose above water. Just as
it was passing the group of ducks he
made a sudden dive, pulled down a
bird and swam back to shore under
water. Arrived there, he carried the
duck to the pile of heather, where his
wife and daughter were no doubt
walting to enjoy the fruits of his la
bors.-"Forty-five Years of Sport."

Mrs. Fyffe Declined.
Some years ago It was decided by
the navy department that the pres

at thc Asiatic station detracted too
much from their official duties. So a
general order was issued to the fleet
directing that the wives be sent home.
Admiral Fyffe, who was in command
of the fleet, received the order in due
time, and it came back to the navy de
partment indorsed as follows:
