usually assigned to dogs by their masters,

With a littlo arithmetic nnd literature, he

Rather Rough—A Government Detective
A few dnys sinee, a dressed nnd dap

a pencil. Was ho a purchaser or a special

view of the manufactory of tho li-anlphnle

met tho netivo proprietor, who was cngnged
with some other gentlemen in making

With all the dignity of new clothes, the

"Allow mo to Inquiro," asked ho of Mr.
Henry ltounnbcl, "are these whisky bar

"Will you allow me to sco your rocelpt
for the manufacture of this whisky?"
"I never made ft gallon."
"Then this is not n distillery?" observed
the detective, with a slight shade of disap
pointment. "No, sir. It is a manufactory of bisnl
phate of lime."
"Allow me to inquire, sir, what is bisul
phnto of lime?'' risked the detective.
"It is a chemical preparation of lime,
used by sugar planters to promoto the

Tho detective wns not to bo thus thrown
