Arriving at a Decision.
Although Senator Elkins of West
Virginia does not often attend the
races nowadays, it was different dur
ing his early manhood. One day he
and a chum slipped off together from
school and on the way to the track
came across their professor, who sai5
In surprise: "Yuung gentlemen, what
does this mean? You should be at
your lessonu," Elkins said: "Sir, we
wanted to go to lessons and also to
the races, so we tossed for it and it
came 'down for the races." "What
did you throw up?" "We threw a lump
of coal up. If it stayed up we went
to school lf it came down we went
to the races, and here we are.slr."

A manufacturer in the west of Eng
land, anxious that his hands should
keep Christmas in a proper spirit, told
them that if they went to church on
that day they should receive their
wages just the same as if they had
been at work. Shortly after the ad
dress a deputation of solemn-faced
employes waited upon their chief.
"We're wlllin' to attend church," said
the spokesman "and if ye can see
your way to payin' us overtime, we're
willin' to attend the Methodist chapel
in the evening."

Fuller and Snapp" and a Southern
Democrat remarked reflectively: "Ful

The late Rear Admiral Frank Wildes
used to be fond of telling this story:
