This breed of goats was introduced
into Cape Colony about 40 years ago.
They throve there and largely propa

suied to the perfect development of

is technically terned, is long, line and
heavy, and covers the whole body and
part of the legs with close-matted
ringlets of particularly soft and silky

Tle. Japanlese canl Winl distinction
at the desk of the counting house as
readily as in sea light. One wlo ob
tained a situation with an English
firm on trial was asked a few days
after his appointment to write to a
customer who had owed sonic money
to the house for a long time and who
seemed to have no intention of pay
ing. "Write briefly and politely,"
said the cashier, "but let him under
stand distinctly that we expect him
to pay the money without further de
lay." The letter was written and on
the following day came the check for
the amount (iu. The surprised cash
ier asked the new clerk to show him
a copy of the letter which had been
so effectual. It ran thus:
"Dear Sir: If you do not scnd us
at olice the money you owe us we
we shall be obliged to take steps

The form seems to combine Orien

When Slowcure Got Gay.
As Slowcure was walking with his
wife through West Twelfth street a
baseball bounded from the asphalt
pavement and narrowly missed a
plant Mrs. Slowcure was carrying
home, says the New York Press.
"The little imps," she exclaimed an
grily. "They deserve a good whip
"Nonsense," retorted Slowcure. "I
used to (10 the same thing myself.
Boys must play ball somewhere."
"Throw it tip mister," shouted a
lad half a block away.
Slowcure picked up the ball and
walked to the middle of the street
with it. He swung his arms and
facetiously went through the motions
of a league pitcher.
"Come away from there," pleaded
Mrs. Slowcure. "Roll that ball back
without making an idiot of yourself."
"Let her come, mister." yelled the
One iore sweep of the arm and
Slowcure let go the ball. There was
a crash of glass. The ball disappear
ed inside the front window of a
boarding house and the boys disap
peared around the corner.
"That will cost you $31," shouted
an irate woman, coming to the front
door. "I was watching you from the
window. As if it isn't bad enough
to have the boys playing in the
streets, without a great, big lummux
like you encouraging then. Your
wife ought to keep you at home."
Tommy. aged five, was a very
sympathetic little fellow. One (lay
upon his return home from a visit
to an animal show he found his
mother suffering from a severe case
oj throat trouble.
"I'm awfully sorry for you, mam
ma." he said, "but I'm glad you ain't
a giraffe."--Chicago News.
