\V. (!. Peterson,
^ Pretending to Know.
0 It is a curious fact that il is nearlv
ays Ihe most ignorant people who
are so afraid of their ignorance being
discovered. 1 f you commence talking
to these people on some subject about
which they know practically nothing,
they are not honest enough lo ::t onre
s let this become apparent, so that one
(> may tactfully turn the conversation I
'? into other channels, and thus find out, I
^ probably, what they do kn nv and can I
> easily talk about; but they po.l their
heads emphatically, acquiescing in
P ev<u \ thing yon say, jus; as if that
were Ihe conclusion that they also had
e come to after long and minute inves
ligation of Ihe subject. And it is on1
ly the bewildered and harassed look
t which after a while creeps in'o their
eyes that lets you into the secret?
they have been playing at pretending
to understand all the tim?, and what
? you have be?m saving i , in reality,
. so much ('reek or "double Dutch"
j to them.
> Oh, the hollowness and sham of it
) all! Why not have openly avowed
I; their lack of knowledge and ii:en, ?
they still wished to hear ' onset-hing
more about what you wm-i saying:,
they could have added, "Rut it U a
subject that has always had a special
fascination for me," or '*gveatly in5
I crests me," and then frankly settle
themselves to listen, throwing out a
n mark or asking a question here and
A good listener is b uiu l to gather
N together a certain amount of knowledge,
or at least pick up a good deal
1 of useful information, whether J e will
A ml as i; is t hat one good lis1
tener is in more demand llian two
talkers, persons whose knowlcduV is
strictly limited shouhl lav themselves

never lind themselves in the wav, for
^ the good conversationalist-?and, be it
said. Ihe empty-headed bore loo?is
always on Ihe lookout for the g'>od
listener, be he ignorant or otherwise.
And thus everyone is pleased.
r> Kick the Printer.
? Tn the city of P>rooklvn, N. V.,
there has been for many years a conspicuous
signboard outside an oflfiee
e which reads; ''Kick Ihe Printer."
i | bibulous persons sometimes go in
side to carry out the apparent re"
quest. lint they discover that the prin
lor is a gentleman bv the name of
Ill every town there are persoi
who, if ihev do not actually i'eel lil<

Please dont kick the printer; he i

And what he does for I lie town an
community, despite his occasion:

Did that ever occur to you?

Candidate and Law.
The late Albert Pell, a conservativ
member of parliament, who devote
his life to the betterment of agricul
turn, the prevention of cattle diseas
and the administration of the poo
law, was a man of ready wit.
It. is stated in a recently publisher
volume of reminiscences of Mr. Pel
that during an election he was askei
if he was not the member who ha<
made the law which commanded poo
men to support their parents.
"No." lie rapped out; "that is ai
older law. It was written by God Al
mighty on two tables of stone am
brought down by Moses from Moun
Sinai; and as far as 1 can make out
Thomas, i! is the stone and not lb
law that lias got into your heart."?
To the Democratic Voters of New
berry County: T desire to thank tli
people of Newberry county for tli
kindness they have shown me in in
canvass, and for the handsome vot
lliev gave me on the 2.">lh of Aniens
which puts me in the second ran
And imw I leave myself in the hand
of the people and if they see fit t
elect me one of their commissioners,
will serve tliem l?? the best of 111
ability, and T will thank them f.
whatever liicy may do for me in I li
second primary election.
