LARGE LI ABILITY ASSUMED
Probably little thought is given
by the majority of people as to how
many bonds are filed during a year
in the county court guaranteeing the
honesty and fidelity of individuals
in positions of trust.
It would surprise those who have
been signing bonds for their friends
to know what liabilities they have
assumed and are assuming for no
consideration whatever, but which
liabilities are assumed simply be
cause they are "good fellows," or
dislike to refuse the request of a

administrators and executors and by
11 persons acting as guardians. Of
this number of bonds 18 were exe

Business men throughout the
country measure a man's resources
by deducting from his assets his lia
bility on bonds, and the custom is
growing rapidly each year for a per
son appointed or elected to a posi- !
tion in which surety is required to
purchase his bond from a surety
company the same as he would pur
chase his fire or life insurance from
a company organized for that pur
pose, and thus avoid becoming obli

A Victim of the Young Ladies' Life
Saving Fire Corps.
The girls had seen a picture of the
life saving fire corps that had been or
ganized by the young ladies of an Eng
lish town and decided to form a simi
lar brigade. The drill consisted in
getting around a large blauket and
holding it to catch unfortunates who
should jump from the second or third
stories of burning dwellings.
But the fair members of the corps,
after learning how to hold the blanket,
wanted some real practice. After much

persuasion a youug man. deeply enam
ored of one of the members, was pre
vailed upon to fall into the blanket
from the top of a barn.
Tbe life savers gathered one after
noon, attired in becoming uniforms,
and twelve gathered around the blan
ket and took a firm grip. Then tbe
accommodating young man climbed up
on the roof of the building, made
ready and jumped. Each girl was gaz
ing upward, and at the terrible sight
of a man falling through the air they
were all so shocked that without think
ing twenty-four bands went up to as
many eyes to shut out the view.

No Chance to Learn.
A speaker at a Newport banquet,
touching upon good manners, said:

are the best, the Frenchman thinks his

the sailor—but listen.

j man-of-war. A distinguished states

" 'Who's that blubber what don't tip
his skypiece to the skipper?'
" 'Choke your luff,' retorted another
• sailor. 'That's Senator Dash, the fa
mous political leader.'
" 'Well,' growled the first sailor, 'way

A happy man or woman is a better
thing to find tban a five pound note.
He or she is a radiating focus of good

night in tbe Bed Light saloon. Tbe

friends, made up the game every day.
All had varying success but one. who

it, his luck varied, too. for some days
he lost more than on others. While be

the game was started. It also happen

the players had brought in a frieud. a
stranger in the town, to join the game.
When the loser came in. therefore, he
was introduced to the stranger and sat
down. A hand was dealt him. He
started to play it, stopped, rapped on
the table for attention and said:

What Bothered Him.
A peculiar instance of connubial af

mont. An aged couple, who through
half a century of married life had
wrangled with each other, were in all
probability soon to be separated. The
husband was taken sick and was be
lieved to be near his end. The old
wife came to his bedside and, after
carefully examining and taking stock
of his condition, exclaimed. "Why,
daddy, your feet are cold, your hands
are cold, and your nose is cold!"
