WOPK FOR THE PARSON
Street Car Conductor Was Altogether
Too Busy to Preach.
An open car in the Sixth avenue
shopping district was well filled with
passengers. One row of seats was oc
cupied by three women and a o'orgy
man, who manfully maintained the
outside seat A small boy with a
large bundle pushed his vay past them
with much inconvenience to tho sit
ters and established himself at the in
side end. When the conductor came
around the boy pushed out a transfer.
Tho conductor looked at it and aiked:
"When did you get this?"
"Just a minute ago," was the prompt
The conductor scowled. "That'll do
for you," he said.
In a minute or so the man at the
end asked: "What was the matter
with that transfer?"
"Six hours old," was the conductor's
"Then, my man, you should put him

RED TAPE OVER TWENTY CENTS.
Gift to Civil Service Commission
Starts Departments Working.
"Can a government department re
ceive donations." Is the question that
has been raised by the reception at
tho Washington city postofllce of an
lnternatic al money order to the
credit of the civil service commission.
The amount contributed, or Intend
ed to be contributed, to the commis
sion, Is twenty cents, but the matter
Is held to Involve a precedent.
Accordingly, tho advice of the con
troller of the treasury was sought,
and that official, after duo considera
tion, decided that it would be Illegal
for any branch of tho government to
receive money outside Its regular ap
propriations by congress, but that It
would bo permissible to return tho
money into tho treasury, where It
would find its placo either In tho con
science fund or appropriations unpro
The controller further remarked,
unofficially, that tho amount so gen
erously donated might, on account of
its magnitude, bo put to such uses as
the commission decided.
Tho latter, through its custodian,
turned the order over to the post
ofllce, and that Institution will, In its
turn, endeavor to give it back to the
sender, a citizen of Austria, or to the
Austrian government. Now York
