The Dudes and Bachelors in Trouble in
Elitor The Manning Times:
The old bachelors of our community
have at last started out with the full
determination to get married if possi
ble. On Saturday morning two of
them, Bachelor No.1 and Bachelor No.
2 came together to discuss the all im
portant question of matrimony. but ar
rived at no conclusion until they called
their friend, our Dude, who cheerfully
offered his services as ciaperone.
The following program was suggested
by Dude: Bachelor No. 1 was to go to a
neighboring village on Saturday and
bring a young lady to spend Saturday
and Sunday with a friend in our com
munity; the entire party with Dude as
leader were to go calling both Satur
day and Sunday evenings. Bachelor
No. 1 did his part as well as could be
expected. The three men are very
loyal to their church. so they decided
to go to preaching Saturday evening
before calling. They consulted with
our pastor in regard to the length of
the services, and being assured that
they would be short they went to
church. Dude always prepares for an
emergency, so before entering the
church he called the bachelors to one
side and told them that they would all
take a back seat so that if the services
were long they could leave without dis
turbing any one. Agreeing on a cer
tain signai, they entered the church
and took a seat near the door. Now
the Dude and Bachelor No. 2 are a very
important part of our choir, Dude hay
in- a sweet soprano voice and the bach
elor a deep, mellow bass voice. Al
most as soon as they Lad taken their
seats they were called into their ac
customed places in the choir.
After the preacher had talked for
some time Dude gave his signal to
leave the church. Bachelor No. 1 was
to go out at the front door, Dude and
Bachelor No. 2 were to go out through
the pastor's study. When the signal
was given, Bachelor No. 1 got up and
walked out the front way: Dude made
an attempt to go out through the study,
but on entering it he found the outer
door locked. He walked back to the
door and signed to the sexton to bring
him the keys. Having secured the
keys he made a desperate effort to
leave the room, but lo: he was so nerv
ous that the key would not fit. After
working faithfully for at least five
minutes, to the amusement of the con
gregation, he Once wore breathed free
In the meantime Bachelor No. 2
made an effort to leave. but on getting
on the outside of the church, by the
kindness of the cool wind, he was in
formed that his head had no protection.
He knew that he would either have to
go back after his hat or call or. the fair
one hatless, so he went in search of his
hat. Securing his hat he followed his
companions. The way these men left
the charch created quite a sensation,
and also caused the parson to forget his
sermon. After things became quiet
the preacher began a missionary ser
mon, emphasizing the need of home
The remainder of the evening passed
off very nicely, or at least in the eyes
of the bachelors and Dude. They met
early next morning and discussed the
questions at issue. It was agreed that
they would adhere to the first plan, so
early Sunday afternoon Bachelor No. 1
started on his trip to carrry his friend
to her home. Dude and Bachelor No.
2 followed and were to call as soon as
Bachelor No. 1 took his departure.
After seeing the fair one safely home,
Bachelor No. 1 returned to his home
thinking that after all life is worth liv
ing. In the meantime Dude and Bach
elor No. 2 were at the home of the fair
ones, Dude talking for dear life, Bache
lor No. 2 taking in everything that was
said. At last time came for preaching,
so the ladies went to get their hats.
Dude said to the bachelor, "js watch
me and do as I do." He then secured
his gold-headed cane, bis long-flowing
overcoat, his smoke-stack heaver and
ave the bachelor the signal to do like
ise. All went well until Dude started
on his homaward march with his fair
one. The sidewalks were narrow, the
night wvas dreadfully daak. the rain was
coiing down in torrents. All of a sud
den Dude lost his head, or rather his
feet, he was soon lying in a small
stream of water calling for help. Bach
elor No. 2 thought that he must do as
Dude did, so he immediately left his
irl and fell in on top of Dude and be
gan to call for help. Of course this
frightened the ladies, so they immedi
ately began to yell at the top of their
voices for help. The citizens of the
little town rushed into the streets ex
pecting every moment to meet a band
of burglars. When they reached the
scene and learned the trouble, lights
were secured and the poor boys were
released from their watery prison.
When speaking of the fated night,
Dude said, "That old bachelor was to
blame for the whole thing;" Bachelor
No. 2 said, "All of you may take the
avice of the Dude if you wish. but as
for me and my house we will seek ad
'ice at other places."

The 3Marvelous Enetgy That Was a
Part of Macaulay.
No life was ever lived at higher pres
sure than that of Macaulay. He was
not only "like a book in breeches," as
Sydney Smith said o' him; he was also
like an intellectual steam engine. His
thirst for knowledge was only equaled
by his amazing capacity for retaining
knowledge and by his passionate inter
est in all the aspects of life. "I wish
I knew as much of anything as Ma
caulay knows of everything," said Mel
bourne, and, though the epigram may
have been intended as a gibe, it ap
proximated to the truth. To the aver
age dullard of the world it must have
seemed that this tempestuous man was
literally omniscient. He plunged into
Italian like a boy rejoicing in a new
toy; he took up Spanish with an appe
tite growing by what it fed on, and
then he returned to Greek with a joy
which he found indescribable. He
amused himself in going to India by
learning German and mitigated the dis
tress of a voyage across to Ireland by
committing "Paradise Lost" to mem
ory, claiming, doubtless with truth,
that if by any inconceivable mischance
the great epic were to be utterly de
stroyed he could from the tablets of his
memory give it back to the world.
A Highland Dinner.
"The highland dinner is a very smart
affair, and one that is never seen south
of the Tweed." says the London Queen.
"The laird wears his full dress kilt ev
ery night, and every one with any
claim to a clan does the same, so that
often there are more kilted men around
the table than black coats.
"The full kilt dress is splendid, and
a man to the manner born looks far
better in it than in any other clothes.
It gives width, height and dignity to
the wearer, with its shayd, sporran and
brooches. Not only does the laird wear
his highland dress, but toward the end
of dinner his piper, who has played in
the hall outside during the meal, comes
into the room and marches around the
table. The pipes are a little deafening,
but the player looks so fine that one is
glad to see him. Most of the pipers in
the more noble families have inherited
the position from their ancestors and
are rightly proud of the post. After
dinner, if there is a big house party,
there is often a dance. Then the piper
is at his best, as he plays his pipes for
the lightsome reels to be danced, beat
ing time with his foot the while."
The Value of Politeness.
If those who are doubtful as to the
correct course to pursue in any given
situation will remember that even the
wrong thing is overlooked if one is but
absolutely polite in the doing of it. their
relief might be great.
A gentleness of demeanor and a cour
teous response or question can never be
out of place. A man may wear a busi
ness suit of clothes to an evening wed
ding less noticeably than a truculent
air of insolence. If he be perfectly well
bred as far as behavior goes, it matters
not so much what his outward garb,
although by an unwritten law of social
observance certain clothes are the cor
rect thing for certain occasions.
Politeness is never wrong. Its prac
tce goes nearly all the way toward the
goal of the right thing in the right
place. We hear of polite insolence, but
insolence is never polite, and it Is never
under any circumstances polite to be
The clock plant is a native of Borneo,
and in that country even it is said to
be rare. The plant derives its name
from its peculiar habits, which are
known to but few who have not studied
it from a scientific standpoint. The
plant lias leaves of two sizes, one
of which acts in the capacity of a
minute hand, which keeps moving un
tIl 4 o'clock in the afternoon, and the
other keeps going until morning. The
larger leaves act as the hour hands.
Starting in a position when all the
leaves lie close to the stem, with the
points hanging down, they rise gradu
ally until they turn toward the top,
and then they drop to their former po
sition'. It takes the smaller leaves
about one minute to go through this
performance and the longer leaves just
about an hour.-Melbourne Times.
A Bornean 'Weapon.
The Bornean mandau, or "head tak
er," is a modification of -the Burmese
dah. It is a heavy, thick bladed cut
lass, from twenty to thirty inches long,
and the edge is ground from the right
side only, the left side being forged
slightly concave. The blade Is also
slightly curved to-the right, so that the
cutting action of the weapon Is like
that of an enormous gouge. Only two
strokes can be dealt with the mandau
from right to left downward and left to
right upward.-Chambers' .Tournal.

When You Have a Cold.
The first action when you have a cold
should be to relieve the lungs. This is
best accomplished by the free use of
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. This
ilemedy liquefies the tough mucus and
ca.ses its expulsion irpm the air cells
of the lungs. piroduces a free espectora
tion and opens the secretions. A comn
lete cure soon follows. This remedy
'will cure a severe cold in less time than
any other treatment and it leaves the
system in a natt~ral and healthy condil
tion. It counteracts any tendency to
ward pneumonia. For sale by The R.

Why He Doubted the Map.
At a St. Andrew's society dinner one
of the speakers told of a Scotch gar
dener, recently landed, who had great
difficulty in acquiring a knowledge-of
American geography. The son of the
household, failing to teach the gardener
in any other way, brought out a huge,
highly colored map. The Scot looked
at It critically.
"Ah, yes, lad; that may be, but it's no
to be truisted. It's laid oot in the plaid
o' the leein' MacFcchtons," was his
"George, did you ever love any other
woman as well as you love me?"
"Oh, yes, my dear; several of them."
"Indeed! Why didn't you marry one
of them instead of me?"
"Well, I suppose I'll be asking myself
that question, too, some day."-Chicago
Where there used to be a feeling of
uneasiness and worry in the household
when a -child showed symptoms of
croup, there is now perfect confidence.
This is owing to the uniform success of
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in the
treatment of that disease. Mrs. M. I.
3asford of Poolesville, Md.. in speak
ing of her experience in the use of that
remedy says: "I have a world of confi
dence in Chamberlain's Cough remedy
for I have used it with perfect success.
