EVIDENTLY OUT OF PLACE
Indignant Frenchman Had Some
Fault to Find With Postmaster,
and Said So.
A Frenchman with a name spelled
a la Paris and pronounced something
like Ca-choo had never learned to
read or write, but he managed to dis
guise the fact pretty well until he
moved to a new community where the
name was not common. Going to the
poHtofflce one morning he Inquired:
"Got any mall for Joe Ca-choo T"
"What's the name?" inquired the
clerk.
"Ca-choo. Joe Ca-choo."
"How do you spell UT"
"Can't you spell Joe Ca-choo T"
"No," said the clerk, "I never heard
It before."
Then the disgust of the Frenchman,
which had been constantly rising,
boiled over and he snorted:
"Well, if you can't spell, why don't
you sell your old postofuce to some
one that can?"

German Scientists Advlss the Eating
of Egg 8helis by Those Who'Ap
prosch Old Age.
Two Germans, deep thinkers Pro
fessors Emmerich and Loawe state
thut eggs shells eaten Increase the
power of resistance against "tie with
ering blight of time," add weight to
the body, activity to the brain and
strength to the heart; that they de
stroy injurious bacilli, prevent Inflam
mation and disease and lend courage
and energy. This reminds me, Phil
ip Hale writes In the Boston Herald,
of the preparation advertised in Lon
don thirty or more years ago as re
moving superfluous hair, being an ex
cellent substitute for table butter,
none genuine unless stamped on the
blade. Eustace Mller, the English
court tennis player and vegetarian,
says he had an old nurse who used
to eat egg shells and crunch them Joy
fully between the teeth that happened
to meet, and she said she ate the
shells because they "shaved the hair
off Inside of the throat." The discov
ery of the German scientist Is peculi
arly welcome to dwellers by the
ocean, for It is a well known fact that
If you do not break egg shells the
witches will put out to sea in them to
wreck vessels, and if you burn the
shells the hens will cease to lay.
Furthermore, as eggs are now absurd
ly high oven case eggs In the neigh
borhood It seems a pity to waste any
part of them.
Thoroughly Up-to Date.
"Halloa!" Jelllson cried, as he en
countered his acquaintance, Barwood,
In the street. "Thought you were get
ting married today. Postponed?"
"Altogether," said Barwood, firmly.
"Not even engaged now, then?" pur
sued Jelllson.
"No. The lady I was to have mar
ried was too modern too up-to-date
for me."
"Up-to-date!" The excuse astonish
ed Jelllson. "How on earth "
"Wrote her last Monday, saying I
was comlDg to see her on Wednesday.
You see, although we'd been engaged
for some time, I never formally pro

I went on Wednesday lst to satisfy

Nothing More to Live For.
Without question, the Scots curler
of whom Lord Lyveden tells in Fry's
Magazine, placed the proper value on
hla sport.
During a recent curling-match in
Switzerland, the skip of ons of the
teams, who happened to be a Scots
man, was so delighted with the accu
rate shot of one of his team, that he
was heard to address him in the fol
lowing manner: "Lie down and dee.
mon; lie down and dee. Te ll never
lay a finer stane nor that if ye live to
be a hundred."
Point for Sherlock Holmes.
Somebody wondered how long a cer

room had been married.
"About 15 years," said the Jeweler.
"How do you know?" asked the Jew
eler's wife. "You never saw her until
tonight."
"I can tell by the size of her wed
ding ring," he replied. "The width of
wedding rings changes about every
five years. The kind she wears was
In style 15 years ago."
