"Pa," quotli Sammio to Ins sire,
" why don't you go out West ? " Why
do you ask, niy boy?" "Because Bill
Higgins' futhur went, and he struck a
banana!" "A bonanza, you mean,
Sainrnie !" " Well, what's the
"Wliy, when people strike a
bonanza it sets thern up, and when they
strike a banana it sets them down and
very emphatically too."
"Ah, I saw you take a pull out of
that bottle ! " said a Galveston gentleman
to the little son of a Prohibitionist,
which boy was staggering under the
weight of a large bottle of whisky. " I
don't care if you did," responded the
boy; " the less there is in the bottle,
the longer it takes dad to get tight. Ho
licks me as soon as he gets tight,
so I want to have my trial put off as long
as possible. I'm in no hurry for my
licking," and he took another hearty
pull at the bottle.
Dr. Emmons, the able New England
divine, met a pantheistical physician at
the house of a sick parishioner. It was
no place for a dispute, but the abrupt
question of the pantheist was: "Mr.
Emmons, how old are you?" "Sixty,
sir; and how old are you?" "As old as
creation," was the triumphant response.
"Then you are of the same age with
Adam and Eve ? " " Certainly. 1 was in
the garden when they were." "I have
always heard that there was a third party
in the garden with them, but I never
knew before that it was you," responded
"(Jan I drive him, do you think?"
Mr. Slowboy timidly asked the liveryman,
as he climbed into the buggy, and
handled the lines with some misgiving.
J Land, yes," said the hostler, with
hearty encouragement; "anybody can
drive him ; but," he added, as the horse
went down the street liko a rocket,
climbed over a haj wagon, shook Mr.
blowboy into the river, and left the
buggy hanging on the arm of a lamppost,"
" it takes a railroad train to keep
up with him."
"I'm bigger than yon are," consequentially
remarked Squibbs' boy to
little Mittiades Marrowfat. " I know it
a bigger fool," returned the latter.
The conversation was repeated at both
supper tables that night, and the next
morning Mrs. Marrowfat and Mrs.
Squibbs were busy plugging up the
knot holes in the back-a ard fence to cut
off all coimuunication between the families.

The following is the list of moral
virtues, being rules draAvn up by Benjamin
Franklin, to which he paid constant
and earnest attention : Temperance
Eat not to fullness ; drink not to elevation.
Silence Speak not but what
may benefit others or yourself ; avoid
trilling conversation. Order Let all
your tilings have their places; let each
part of your business have its time.
Resolution Resolve to perform what
you ought ; perform without fail what
you resolve. Frugality Make "no expense,
but do good to others as yourself ;
that is, Avaste nothing. Industry Loso
no time; be ahvays employed in something
useful, but avoid all unnecessary
notions. Sincerity Use no hurtful deceit;
think innocently and justly, and,
if you 6i)eak, speak accordingly. Justice
Wrong no one by doing injuries, or
omitting the benefits that are your duty.
Moderation Avoid extremes; forbear
resenting injuries. Cleanliness Suffer
no uncleanlinesR in body, clothes or
habitation. Tranquillity Be not disturbed
about trifles, or at accidents, common
or unavoidable. Humility Imitate
Many persons iron towels and fold
them and place them aAvay before they
are thoroughly dry.. This is an error,
and sometimes loads to results not expected.
