A Comedy of Door.
The arrangement of the binges on
many of the uoors in the corridors of
the city hall Is responsible for a nu ru
ler ot comedies that are enacted in
tbe municipal buildings every day.
The doors are so constructed as to
swing both ways, and teapond either
to pull or push on the part of the
person wishing to pass through them.
The glass in tbe center of the swing
doors is opaque, and hence an amus
ing confusion is caused when two per
sons going in opposite directions, each
unable to see the other, try to pass
through at the same time. The com
edy is usually played as follows:
No. 1 and No. 2 approach on expo
rt le sides of tbe door simultaneously.
They meet, No. 1 pushes on the door.
Ditto No. 2. A barder push from both
sides brings no results. Both back off
and look at the door. They realize
what the matter Is, and both wait for
the other to makte.a start. Usually
they both wait for the other to so
ahead, and after an instant's hesita
tion push ahead with full steam on.
They meet again, and the one with the
strongest temper wins out. His vlc-a.
la gives way and lets him pass. A
student of buuan nature might nofe
with Interest that the'man whrf klvea
way usually smiles, while the success
ful contestant tor the right of way
usually frowns. Philadelphia Press.
' One of Japan's Heroes.
I rushed by a fellow who was down:
his left leg was shot away. He wag
bleeding copiously. Through the din
nf the rifle Arc and machine guns which
gave us a mantle of smoke and dust, I
ehouted to him: "To the rear, to tha
field hospital, and be quick about It!"
The fellow looked at me, and upon his
face wa a marked sig.t of surprise.
His lips qulccred In a half smile. The
expression of hU face was at once an
interrogation point and a mild rebuk.
Tncn he began to wiggle himself for
ward through the bodies of his fallen
comrades. I repeated my order, which,
seoing .that he could not walk very
well with one leg, was a very foolish
one I wa3 somewhat exasperated at
the evident indifference on his patt to
the crJer of his superior officer. He
raised his face In my direction with
the same old half smile end said to
rae: "Lieutenant, I have lost one of
my legs, but don't you see I havo two
hands? They ought to be enough to
strike at the Russians." Leslie's
Arithmetic 'tis well to shun
Of puzzles it lias plenty:
For instance, I was twenty-one
When Madge was sweet and twenty.

Worked on rae with his leaven:

When Madge was twenty-seven.
The marvel grew in huge estate
Madge proved ot time so thrifty,
Remaining simply thlrty-eiglT!
