The Tr-ou:') With the Meat. 4
Stepping into a small restaurant, a
grouchy old man demanded of the
waiter a certain piece of meat he had
in the show window.
"But," said the waiter, "we"
"No buts," rcplied the old man. "You
bring me what I ask for or I won't get
anything here at all."
Rather than lose a customer, the
waiter did as he was told and, getting
the piece of meat, took itkack to be
cooked. After a long wait the meat
was brought to the customer, who, in
stead of thanking the waiter, said,
"Look here, young man, what is the
matter with this meat?"
"Nothing is the matter with it, sir,
except that the paint on it has formed
a few blisters from the heat."
"Why, what do you mean by that?"
asked the old man.
"Simply this." replied the waiter.
"Those pieces of meat you saw in the
window were not made to eat. They
were made for advertising purposes,
but you insisted, sir, upon having one
of 'em."-Philadelphia Times.
Napoleon's Custodian at St. Helena.
Sir Hudson Lowe. the man appoint
ed by England to be the custodian of
the emperor, arrived at St. Helena on
April 14, iS16. His appearance was
not prepossessing. He was extraordi
narily thin, with a stiff carriage. He
had a long, bony face blotched with red
and scanty hair of a dirty yellow color.
His hollow eyes gleamed under thick
reddish eyebrows, but were furtive
and restless, never looking straight at
any one save by stealth.
"That is a bad man," declared Na
poleon when he had seen him. "His
eye as he examined me was like a

The most 'interesting sight in the

This he would lay on the fabric and
then carefully perform his toilet, look
Ing round and down all the time to
see that every one- else was busy.
Whenever his eye lighted on a toddling
child or, a perambulator it visibly
brightened. "My true work!" he seem
ed to say; "This nest building is mere
bypaths of industry." After drinkng
and overlooking and congratulating
himself thus for a few minutes he
would stroll off.over the housetops for
another stick. He was unquestionably
a king of the garden.-Lucas in "A
Wanderer In Holland."
The Way Out.
A well known Boston physician was
on his way .to his office one winter
morning when the sidewalks were a
glare of ice. While going down the
street he met a lady coming in the
opposite direction.- The lady was a
stranger to him, although he was not
unknown to her.
In trying to avoid each other on the
icy pavement they both slipped and
came to the sidewalk facing each oth
er, with their pedal extremities consid
erably entangled. While the polite
doctor was debating in his mind what
was the proper thing to do under the
trying circumstancesihe problem was ="
solved by the quick witted lady, who
