" 'Tis passing strange," quoth the
secretary. "I will summon hence our

"Man, hath thy better senses loft

he looked out upon the kicker. '' Hath

Why They Didn't
There is a story of an English!?
who, having been instituted -in his new
office, went about tho parish to make
acquaintance with his congregation.
One day ho called on an honest farmer,
who asked him how he liked Devon?
shire. "Oh, I like it exceedingly," said
the curate, "but I find it rather muddy,
I notice, however,"ho continuod, point?
ing to tho farmer's boot, which had a
prodigiously thick sole, "that you tuko
a very sensible prcv-aution to keep out
of the wet''
"Well, you see, Mr. S-," said the
farmer, "I havo a club foot. "
The curate, who was the shiest and
most sensitive of men, fled from tho
house, so much was ho grieved over the
unintentional cruelty of his speech.
James Payn says ho always considered
this story vory humorous, and onco told
it in his "best manner" at a large din?
ner party in a house where he had nev?
er diued before. During the narration
he received a violent kick under the ta?
ble from hin next neighbor, but suppos?
ing it to bo accidental went on talking.
