Tho Ingenuity ol Womankind.
A ctory was told tho other day that
admirably exemplified tho ingenuity of
womankind. It w as tola by a ell Known
dock man as ho w as taking a trip around
Grand Islamltho other afternoon. "They
had no otid of trouble In trjing to keep
cups for chinking purposes at tho water
coolers on tho Periwinkle last summer,"
said he. "Tlio captain was in despair.
Ho had tried chaining tlio cups, but the
women even broke tho chains. Finally
the engineer hit upon a bright and
novel plan. 'I tell you what to do,' he
said. 'Just prfek a holo tluough tho bot
tom of each cup. That will mako them
leak so thai it will bo impossiblo to cany
them to tho upper deck.' Tho captain
was delighted, and immediately ordered
a lot of new cups, w Inch i ero carefully
bored. Then tlio engineer mado himself
icady to binilo at tho passengers' dibcom
flturo. Tho first person that tried cairy
ing water npstaiis was a small boy, who
tested every cup and finally gavo up tlio
"Tlio engineer chuckled and hugged
himself in diabolical glco at tho suc
cess of his scheme, but a school girl
fooled him just tho same. Sho camo
down humming an air from 'Eiminio,'
filled up tho first cup sho got hold of and
staitcd. Tlio engineer's delight was get
ting beyond bounds when ho saw tho
water streaming along tho floor. Tho
girl saw it, too, and stopped short.
Sho sized up tho leak and then, going
back to tho cooler, deliberately refilled
tho cup, put her finger over tho leak and
canied tho cup of water up stairs in tri
umph. That was tlio maddest engineer
I e er saw, but instead of getting angry
I I oared when ho told mo of it, and said:
'Scoioonofor tho girl. Bless tho dear
things, anyhow. No matter how hard
or hbw often a man may try to fool them,
it is tlio gill who conies out ahead. Say
what j ou aio a mind to, thoy get there
