A Little Tol's Rejoinder.
While Mrs. C. F. Burnam was the
guest, recently, of her son, Hon. A. R.
Barnaul, at Frankfort, a little incident
occurred illustrating the quickness of
a child's perception. Its sensitiveness,
and, incidentally a species of sarcasm
tliat will prevent the grandmother from
again expressing her opinion so freely
to little Madge. Mrs. Barnaul casually
remarked that she was a little fonder of
her grandsons than of her grand-
aughiers. to which Madge oniekly re
plied, "and your granddaughters are a
ttie louder ot their grandpa than they
areof their grandma." 'To smooth over
the affair Mrs. Burn am kissed the little
pouting lips and paid that "grandpa

opened the barred partition behind

the precious yellow and whito metals
wero shown to the bewildered child
who could hardly lift some of them
containing money enough, as she said
"to buy my papa's farm." At last, Mr
