[ HOW JACK
"It's no use," enid Jack... throwing
himself into my most comfortable
easy chair end looking the picture
of misery. "It's not a bit of use !"
"What isn't?" I asked.
"Trying to propose to her." re
jfWhy isn't it?"
^Because I, ccn't!" moaned, or
rather howled, tho poor boy, sav
agely kicking my waste paper bas
"Why can't you?"
"The fact is," said Jack, sitting
down again and assuming a sepul
chral tone, "if I don't bring it off I'll
"I'll dio of felo-de-se."
Here was my dear chum, sU
months since the brightest, happiest,
merriest fellow in London, deeply in
love with a young person called Cia
?y (I don't to this day know her oth
er name; Jack never mentioned it),
and in the depths of despair because
he couldn't "brin? jt off," if I may
?ise his own terse phraseology. We
lield conversations of this sort about
?ix times a day on an average, but
never before had he threatened to
"Ii shall be either by ' pistol or
rope," growled Jack hoarsely, and
.for the moment I believe he was
thoroughly in earnest.
I thought I'd try the cynical, man
of the world method and scoff him
out of his foolishness, so I said :
"Fancy being knocked over in this
way by a puling girl, a weak, silly
creature, who isn't even a new wo
Jack was all cn fire in a moment.
"She's not a weak, puling, silly
creature, and she is a new woman,"
lie shouted, forgetting for the nonce
?that it is not altogether a desirable
thing to be in love with that femi
cninenovelty, "So now!"
^Parenthetic Hy I may ask, Why
as it that peojf.j always end up de
fiances of this kind with those mys
tic words, "So now." Why is it?)
I "Jack," I said, "write to her."
"Splendid idea!" said Jock, who
"had been thinking of different ways
of proposing for six months and now
hailed that pf doing it by post as an
?entirely new and original idea.
""Here goes, and thanks awfully, old
chap, for giving me the tip."
Seizing quite a quire of note paper
Jack scribbled and tore up about a
dozen proposals in writing. Then
he turned round, almost crying, and
?aid that he couldn't do it that way,
and he wouldn't, and he'd hang him
self, and perhaps then she'd be sor
ry, and-and-andr-why waa he
"My dear hoy/f I said, laying my
nand on his shoulder in the most
fatherly way imaginable, "let's talk
over the matter quietly. Now, sup
?posQ I propose for you ?" *
"No/' said Jack. "She'd think I
was afraid to ask her myself and re
fuse me on the spot. No. I won't
write,, and I won t do it by proxy.
Isn't there some ^ other way ? Why
?don't you puggest something, you
great, long idiot, instead of sitting
there and grinning all night?"
Now, I wasn't grinning, and I had
been suggesting things all tho time,
so naturally I felt much hurt. I
therefore curled np and T?BB silent.
.For some time Jack smoked sav
agely without speaking a word.
!Af ter abor t twenty minutes of thia
. he laid do wn his pipe and began in
a very iipc loge tic tone:
"Well?" . . <
"Crn't y?\i think of any other,

' Wear a flower which means 'I
love you.' A pansy or crocus or
something. Them ii she wants JQMf
she'll wear ono meaning, 'Your sen
timents aro reciprocated/
. "Don't think much of that way,"
. said Jack. "Know any other ?"
Now, I have never been in love
in my life and never intend to bo,
and so I found' it rather hard to give
Jack advice. However, ? racked my
brains and at length evolved thia

and grabbing his hat. "How am I

AMONG THE KAFFIRS.
Grunting Seems to Be the Fuvortto
W*y of Expressing Sentiment.
Thc amount of greeting among or
dinary Kaffirs is to say "I see you/'
to which answer comes back, "Yes."
When a Dative passes a European
iii the uncivilized parts of the coun
try, says Mr. Dudley Kidd in "The
Essential Kaffir," he will frequently
anticipate tho white man's "I seo
you,".and will start off with a loud
Of all ways of expressing senti
ment, grunting is the favorite, and
the Kaffir grunts with great elo
quence. His simple grunt can ex
press a whole world of sentiment.
After hearing natives express so
much by grunting one cannot avoid
thinking that pigs might learn to
Kaffirs have many very expressive
exclamations, such es "Yo!" when
they wish to show contempt;
"Hau!" when they show surprise;
"Wow!" and many other similar ut
In visiting a chief it is rude to
speak first. Accordingly, when we
visited a Kaffir king, we sat in silence
and prctentcd not to seo him. At
length he looked up at us and said,
"I see you," and the ice was broken.
We grunted approval of the senti
ment and sala the proper things.
When the questions began to be a
little too personal we told our na
tive servant to fetch the blanket
we had brought with us in order to
open the chiefs eyes.
When we gave the chief the blan
ket he looked at it and gave a grunt
which was one of moderate and
guarded approval. He felt tho qual
ities of the blanket with his fin gera,
placed it to his skin to seo how warm
it would be; he then showed it to
his councilors and asked them blunt
ly what they supposed it had cost.
When he was satisfied that it was
hotter than any kept by local trad
era, he gave another grunt of ap
froval which plainly said, Thanks ;
think that on the wholo it is not
bad; I have seen better, but it will
do all the same."
Then he said in words, "Now my j
eyes are open and ? can seo you." In
fun I began to chaff him and said,
"Well, if you can see us now, will
you tell us what yon can see ?"
Swift as light came the answer, "I
shall know what I seo when the
night is cold and I wrap the blanket
about my body."
A native never commits himself if
he can possibly help it. After a lit
tle more desultory conversation the
chief thought it was time to end tho
indaba, "to hem up the fringes of
the talk, with the thread made from
the sinew of an ox," as their express
ive phrase runs. So we hemmed
it up. _

AN EXCITED ANGLER.
Ho Lost His Hoad For Awhile, but Fi
nally Landed His Fich.
If there is any place requiring a
cool head it is when one is in a
light boat or canoe angling for heavy
fish in dwp or swift water. Undue
excitement has coat many a life un
der such circumstances.
A curious example of thc outcome
of undue excitement has just been
related to me by a friend-in fact,
the individual himself.
Unfortunately for my friend, al
though a man of thirty-five years,
yet onlv once previous to this oc
casion had he experienced the joys
Business took him up near the
pine woods, and between trains, aft
er his business had been transacted,
he was invited by two of his cus
tomers to try tho maskinonge. And
off they started, he throwing out his
lure and within a few moments get
ting a vicious tug at his line which
bent his rod and ect his reel screech
ing. The tug on tho line, the bend
ing of tho rod and the screeching,
whirring reel were too much for him,
and, giving a spasmodic leap, ho
cleared the boat and landed feet first
on tho bottom of the lake, that wa3
covered with five feet of water,
holding fast meanwhile to the rod.
The cool water calmed his nerves at
once, and, being a six footer, he .sim
ply elevated his chin and arms and
in his own fashion began to;,manip
ulate the rod and reel. The*fish be
gan to leap and run. When he turn
ed his head toward the boat to ask
for advice as to the proper way to
handle thp fish, no ono was to be
seen in thc boat. Both his friends
had just simply rolled of! their seats
and were guffawing with laughter;
tho only thing to be seen by him
were two corncob pipes that his
friends had removed from their
mouths and held aloft while they
roared with amusement.
He landed tho fish. I asked him
what it weighed. "It was a maski
nonge," he replied, "and weighed
two and one-half pounds." "Much
ado about nothing," I exclaimed,
and I made up the third man who
heartily enjoyed the episode.-Cor.

SAW A CHANCE AT LAST.
jut Jed Blundered nnd Discovered His
Mistake Too Lato.
It hud long boon almost a proverb
in tho village that Jedediah Perkins
"didn't know a chance when ho saw
one." The public discussion of this
failing had often como to Uncle
Jed's cars ami had sounded loudly in
thom. Worst of all, he had to ad
mit that he was, in tho language of
his neighbors, "easy." He paid tho
most for what he bought and got
the least for what he sold of any
man within a dozen miles.
But Uncle Jed saw a chance at
last. A railway runs closo to his
house, and in thc middle of winter
during a tremendous snowstorm a
passenger train was stalled in the
cut through his south pasture and
was unable to go forward or back.
After it had been there about half
a day Uncle Jed saw his chance.
There were a hundred or two hun
gry passengers eager to buy food.
Ile had a largo store of ham and
bacon. He would have Aunt Sarah
make it up into sandwiches, and
they would clear a small fortune.
"So that's what we done," said
Uncle Jed, telling of it afterward.
"We made up every bit of ham in
the house iuto sandwiches, and I
took 'em down there and offered 'em
for sale for a quarter apiece.

as I made up my mind it was time,
though, along in front come one of

away went the train behind it
through the cut it made.
"Well, sir, as I sat there watching
that train hadn't gone more'n 200
yards before I see I had made a
great mistake not to sell them sand
