a bliio lace.

The Result of Believing in Proverbs.
While the prisoners were out in tho
jail yard a few days ago, two of them
who wero undor sentence to tho peniten
tiary, wero heard comparing notes about
"I don't believe In proverbs," said
prisoner No. 1, "it is believing in pro- .
verbs that brings mo here. When I was
a boy, I often seen folks pick up pins,
nnd when I asked them why they did it,
"If vnu see a pin and let It lay, '
You will have bad luck all the day."
"Yes, that's so. I've heard it myself."
"Well, it don't work. I picked up a
pin, and I've had bad luck ever sinco,
I was arrested tho very same day, and
now I've got to go to tho penitentiary
for three years."
"What has that to do with picking up
"Well, you sec, tho pin I picked up
was a diamond pin worth $150. I be
lieved in the proverb about having good
luck, if I picked up the pin in a show
case, but they telephoned for the police
and here I am."
Tho other prisoner thought for a
moment, and then said:
"When I conio to think of it, proverbs
are what have brought me to this tix."
"How so?" asked tho man who had
picked up tho pin for good luck.
"Well, I had heard about horseshoes
bringing good luck, so I picked up .
horseshoes. - Horseshoes wefo my weak
ness." "Them horseshoes you went off with
wore fastened on to another fellow's
horse, weren't they?" queried No. 1.
"When I get out I'm not going to
tamper with any more proverbs," re
marked No. 2.
"Mo neither," responded No. 1.
"Fall in, boys," said tho jailer, and
they went back to their rosy retreats on
the inside of tho jail. Louisville Courier
