lar with you when you collect ins fare.
A passenger passed it on me a month
ago. If he gives you a dollar, you can
shove it on him."

dollar and received the counterfeit half
and 45 cents in change.
"Worked like a charm," said the con
ductor as he reached the platform.
"Here he comes now. He wants to
get off."
The drunken man wabbled to the
door and unsteadily descended from
the car.
"Now we'll split up," remarked the
conductor of the car as he drew the
dollar from his pocket. And as both
of the conductors gazed at the sliver
dollar they gasped in unison: "We're
up agin it! It's a counterfeit dollar."—

THE SHANGHAIS.
A Fov.l That Wa. Popular In This
Country From 184» to IKOS.
The 1849 exhibition ou Boston Com
mon had a small number of breeds, but
a Koodiy number of exhibitors. It was
at this exhibition that these Chinese
breeds were tirst exhibited as Shang
hais, and the name Cochin China,
which uj> to that time had been used,
was dropped. Buff aud White Shang
hais and the Marsh fowls (colored), so
named from the importer, were being
introduced into this country in 1847-8
and the early part of 1840. These were
all heavily feathered on shanks and
feet, and breeders were seeking to ob
tain more uniform color in each varie
ty and to keep the varieties distinct

cure the Chinese birds previously bred

once observed that the birds we had
called Cochin Chinas were of a race
akin to the newer importations. New
England was carefully canvassed, and
every fowl that matched the newcom
ers in color was at once absorbed with
them as Shanghais.
It was iv IS»;.J that the Shanghais
appeared as Cochins, with neither pre
fixes nor addenda, and in the exhibi
tion of 18615 there appeared the Hog
don trio of Huffs, to sell at auction in
that exhibition for $315—up to that
time an unprecedented price. This
was their second rise in the fanciers'
favor. Then they dropped into a sub
ordinate position till a few years ago,
when they again came to the front in
Madison Square Garden, when $500
was paid for a pair and $275 for a sin
gle specimen. As Cochin Chinas,
Shanghais and Cochins they have sold
for higher prices than fowls of any
other breeds, and as far as breeds of
fowls go they have had a greater in
fluence upon the fowl stocks of the
land than any others and their influ
ence upon poultry culture is of all
agencies second in importance.—J. K.
