JUDY FILIWS DILEMMA.
Mark Immsoy und Job Trottnr wars
often soon at tlio hnuso of old Squire
Filpot, Tlieso visits were not duo to any
rep i id which Mark and Job miiy have
lind for the Rtpiiro, but wore clearly
trueonhle to the love which thny lure his
daughter, Judy. The two yottiiK man
were so inut'h alike, physically, that they
might Imve boon taken for twins, Thoy
were tall, strong, and woll-liiilt; they
were Murk-eyed anil Ioiik haired, .sun
burned and hardened by exposure to nil
sorts of linrdnliiiM, Thoir roscnililiiuco
evon extended to mentnl peculiarities.
Mark did not know knur division from
snort coming; ueitner am dui. Mark,
given the freest exercise of his arm,
could not, with a charred chunk, have
written his name on the gable end of the
barn; neither could Job. Iteiiig so much
alike phrsicallv anil montull'-, it was
small wonder that they loved Judy, who,
bv the wnv. was the handsomest irlrl in
the neighborhood. She wan more than
merely handsome: she was bright, quick
to learn, and flattering gossip declared
could knit a nnir of vnrn socks or snatch
the feathers olf a chicken as quickly and
ns effectually as any girl in the com-
miinlty, regurdloss of educutional ad van-
tngos. Judy loved Mark and Job, but
ho could not decide which one she pre
ferred. 1 bis inaliility gave her great
Miiccrn, and often at night while pnch-
ing her father's brown ieiins, or at even
ing when crouchod in the slowlv darken
ing gold of a dying day, milking the
niiily cow, she would shut her eyes, bring
up the faces of her two lovers and at
tempt to force herself into a decision,
but in vain; for when the gold of the
evening had darkened into the charcoal
of nlilit, when old niiily stood patiently
wilh one foot iii the pail of milk, Judy's
love remained in etiuiil division.
Old rilMil liked the Ixiys, but, to have
savea ins lite, no coma not nave told
w hieli one was his favorite, lie was
willing she should marry one of them, it
nmdo no dillereuce which, and ho
ciet iy wisiiea tnat one or them, still no
matter which, would die, so that the re
maining one could make his daughter
.Neither ono of the young men was ever
able to see the girl alone, for they kept
so close a watch iism each otle r's inovo
meuU that one making his nptieurance
at the 'Si I Hire's lions.) was sure to be fol
lowed immediately by the other.
Due morning, just ns tho Spiiro and
Midi iiailariseu fr.au the breakfast table,
v.iiei' in she silling room announced, to
well accustomed ears, the arrival of tho
l i'. its 'I'he old man and his daughter
went ill. and following along the worn
luo'it cordially shook hands with the
i.-ilors und Im.le them feel lierfoctly at

if e can't sorter make sumo arrange
"'Mini's what wo Imve," Job put in.
"1 want Judy," Mark added.
".So do i, " said Jok
"1 love her n iwerful, " Mark observe!.
"1 love her just about the same, " Job
tii'iilleinen," said tho 'Sou ire, per
plexedly stroking his whiskers, " I don't

just n little letter than vou do the other?

"That's what I kaint tell, pap.

am Isdiind with my crap an' my farm's

"Jest the same with me, " Job brnko in.

"What do you say, Judy ?"
"Suits me," the girl answered.
"All right," said the old man. "We

shall it lie rusilin' ?"
They agreed that It should Ik) wrest

tlioiiiselieH up to the eontmt, but the
fatul similarity again asserted itself, for
the two young men wore of equal
strength and agility. Then they tried
foot racing, thev were of equal std;

now of he decides agin me I'll whup him
till the folks will think he's been chawed
up and spit out by a tliresliin' machine. "
"And us forme, " said Job, Tin mo'n
delighted with the idee, but jest let me
say that el' ho decides agin me I'll wallup
him till you'd have to get him together
wun a nay rake.
"Gumleniun," the parson romarkod, "I

Ceuti'iinlnl of tlm "Stovepipe Hat."
Just 100 years hnvn elapsed since tho
Inauguration in Emnpe of the high silk
hat relent "the stovepipe" and tho
centennial anniversary thereof has been
colobratod during tho last week by tho
hattors of thu Old World with all the
solemnity warranted by the occasion.
According to the traditions nf the "til
ing" fraternity it was the Quaker head
gear of Benjamin Franklin which first
gave tho I'uris hatters tho idea of the
"atovepijs," and that led to its adoption.
During tho enrly part of the century it
was regarded us denoting lilicral and
even republican views on the pnrt of the
lint towards 1KI0 a chango took place,
and it became an emblem of conserva
tism, while tho soft fc.lt lint succeeded it
as a feature of the revolutionary equip
ment. Even to this day the wearing of
a soft felt hut by it politician in Europe is
sufficient to denote his radical proclivi
ties, and in the Dritish house of commons

are almost the only members who affect
that particular form of heudgear. Every

and monstrously ugly, hns maintained
it supremacy for just 100 years. Now
rWlous Ili-rert of Hmnkeless Powder.
A great deal has been written abont
the smokeloRs powder, which has been
adopted for the French, (ierman and
Austrian armies. The French have a
powder of their own, mid for nil that has
been reported of the experiments made
with it, It Is n very good powder. So is
tho German and Austrian powder, but it
has a scrlotiR defect, which the military
authorities of the two countries have
been making uneasy endeavors to con
ceal. The powder has ton great a foroo
of expansion, and cracks the seven mili
uiottfr Muiiulicher barrel after twenty
shots. After long deliberation it was
decided, at Berlin and Vienna, that tho
powder must bo adopted notwithstand
ing; but it was also resolved that the
Munnlichcrs must have new barrels.
These are being manufactured with aa
much expedition nnd secrecy as possible;
but to let the cat out of the bag, it must
be stated that tho rearmament of the
Austrian nnd Oemum forces cannot bo
effected within less thnn two years.
