A Waiiter.Wheel Steory.
Sonin one tells , the following story,
which serves to polnt a moral : ''There
were two men (in about 183S) ,Stickpenny
and WV hewen, who owned.a saw-mill near
Old Town, Maine, in common. Tihe ar
rangement tunder which the mill was
)operated.wat that ech had the mill all to
I himself during alterna'te weeks. Stick
penny was a mean, Iusty old chap.
Whewell . was a shrewd, investigating
young ian. The mill was run by a crude,
rough kind orain u'i.lershot wheel, that
gave very little p wtir.r t, the-samotul of
water used, so that. the water was
often short. Whewell wanted to put Iln a
new iron spiral-vent wheel,, then just
coming out, but Stickpoeny would have
nothing to do with it. lie wasn't going
to lay out money for any 'such job as that.'
Finally, Whewiell said he would pay all
bills, to which Stickpenuy at last .agreed,
'but provided you put the wheel in in your
week.' So the new wheel was put in, and
Whewell, beiungof a mechanical turn of
mind, experitaented with it, and soon
found that by plugging up some of the
orifices the saw went. through the log fas- I
ter than when they were all open. So he i
plugged them tUp during his week, and
alwhvays pulled the plugs all out again for
Stlckperip y to operate with. Soon it be
gun to be noticed that somehow. .or other
Whewell always m.antaged to saw a couple
of thousand feet mere of lumber in his
week than ever Stickpenny could, no mat
ter how the. pond was.
"Finally Stickpenny. went down to see I
Whewell aibout it. Says he, 'Whewell,
how is it that you manage to saw more
lumber in a given time :than I can when
my turn conies round ?': Says Whewell, I
'Donr't you know how that is? Wsaal, I'll
tell you. It's because: you ain't been
treatin' of nme fairly in this matter. It's
ag'in nature. You can't expect the mill
to saw as well for you as it does for them
who do_ the square thing all around.'
Stickpenny wouldn't believe that and went
away. But still the mill went on ttirning
out regularly more lumber for Whewell
• than Stickpenny mantaged to get outof it:
so, .. the latter came, around, and said,'
SW'hat's your bill? I'll pay my share._
"He paid it, and thereafter. Stickpenny
inmanaged to saw lumber just as lively as
TVhewell did. 'Well,' said the old fellow,
'I always knew.that the folks around here
Tere ill ag'in- me, but I never thought
that the Almighty wa:;'?and he died

telling tales of each other, A guiod one is
told at the expense of a wellkanowo real
estate man of this .city. He was delega
ted by a c!tub of campers, at one of the
WisaconslIn watering-pla~ces, to purchase a
small piece of lasnl' adjoining the club
ground. 1ie made overtures to the own- i
er, who refilaed to part with the property.
"I couldn't think of selllng that strip,"
said he. "It would destroy the symmetry
of my place." "Cemetery !" exclaimed
the real-fstate slan. "Thunder ! I

I suppltse I qght to be ashaatgd to write
it, but It is the fAult that as I, by the side
of my fatJier, Walked across from the
S'Albany Basin" to the Fulton Ferry; I
never dared scarcely to look tip once to se
the sights .r the buildings, for I had to
keep my eyes oit my feet to see that I did
not tep otany of the "gridirons," those
round tiron grates inlaid in the sidewalks
i to give liglht and ventilation to the cellars.
Not knowting for what they were de
signed, they were gridirons to mre; and I
was -in coristant fear least I should step on
, one and fall through Intoe some eontealed
fire, or, atleast, into some deep place,' and
either be 'burnt to death, or killed, or
utterly lost toview forever. So that I got
no idea of the great city, and saw nothing
but the gridirons. To this day, I never

One nlght a judge, :a tilitaryoffieer, and
a minister all.,~skipliaid for lodging at an
inn where-there was but one spare bed,
and the larfdlord was ealled upon todecide
which had the -best claim of the three.
"'i have laid gtfteen years in the garrison
atEB," said the oflekr., "!. . have s-at as
judge twenty-years intR.," said the judge.
"With your.leave gentlemen, I have stood i
in the ministry twentyf'lve years at N.,"
said the manister. - "That settles the dis

C-ptain, have lain fifteen years-you, Mr.i
Judge, haye sat for twenty-but the aged
pastor has Rtood five-and-twenty years, so
he oertainly has the best right to the bed."
The London C(karcr Times tells the story
of some Sunday-sehool children taken for
a picnic to the-seasidd. One of -the teach
ers asked :her scholars how they like theJ
sea. 'Werymuich, miss," replied a child,
"but where- are -the'-tinnamie?'" "The1
tinnamies, miy-child ! What do-ou mean ?"
"Whyi you know;" thechild replied again,
"the Ainnamles -'that go with the sea.
You know.:,he.lcouamandment says, 'the
seas and all the tinnamies.' " This was
the way the child .had been repeating
"the sea and all that in them is."
The failure to build moderate-cost hous
es in. the spring is cropping out in results
I now by raising. of rents. But the wise
landlord who has a good tenant is always
cautious about raising rent, except when
the aforesaid good tenant moves out.
