A Doabtlng- Father.
One warm midsummer day Steve
found himself seated under the old
Baldwin apple tree, with the half bull
of a red hearted watermelon In bis lap.
Old Mr. B., busy with the other half,
paused now nud then to ask Steve
about bis new job, bow many cigars he
smoked in a day, wbat they cost and
what be paid for bis fine clothes. Pres
ently lie wanted to know what they
calljl his boy on the road conductor,
brakenian or what?
"They call nie the general freight
agent, father," said Steve.
That's a mighty big name, Steve."
"Yes. father; it's rather a big Job,
too. for me."
"But ye don't do It all, Steve. Ye
nnis-t have bauds to help you load and
"Oh. yes, I have n lot of help!"
"And the company pays them all?"
"How much do they pay you, Steve
$2 a day?"
Steve almost strangled on a piece of
core, and the old gentleman saw that
be had guessed too low.
"Three?" he ventured.
"More than that, father."
"ie don t mean to say they pay ye
as much as fl-v-c?"
"Yes, father; more than 23."
The old man let the empty hull fall
between his knees, stared at his boy

The Inquisitive Damsel.
A girl who took up photography not
long ago and endeavored to get some
valuable suap shots had bad luck with
her first, pictures. There were funny
streaks of white all through tl;e;u
when there was any picture at all. and
she couldu't imagine how they came
there. Neither could an experienced
amateur who assisted In developing
Ler first negatives and who took the
usual precautious in loading the cam
era and taking the plates.
"I can't Imagine what Is the mat
ter," be said as plate after plate came
out either, good for nothing or with
only n little of the picture visible.
"Those ought to have been good
"Neither can I." said the girl. "They
looked all nice and smooth and white if
that is the way they ought to look."
"Looked all right!" exclaimed her In
structor iu dismay. "You hadn't look
ed at them before we put them iu the
camera, bad you?"
"Oh, not enough to hurt them!" said
the girl. "I just lifted up the black
paper from each plate just the littlest
crack in the world. I just couldn't re
sist the temptation of seeing how nice
they looked and thiuk of the lovely
pictures I was going to have on them."
