Ijowu Ut Ohio last week I saw a pic

was pointing to the Hag. and beneath
the picture were toe words ana music

"Asthopresidciinnl election approacli

the Illinois Steil compnny, "mau;:
of our best customers are imstpoiiing
purchases for the reason, as they state,
they wish to wait until they are certain
of the residt of the electiou." This Is
the old hypocrisy, the monumental lie
of IIm;, Introduced once more. It is
too feeble and silly a ghost, however,
to strike terror this year. If tin? pros
perity and full dinner pails of the
American people di pend upon continu

and invertebrate creature who now oc
cupies it, Iod ln-lp the country. The
assertion of President Kulflngton is an

The Charms of "Monte-Chrlsto.
Lord Salisbury once told tho fol
lowing Interesting and amusing Inci
dent at a meeting of a certain literary
club. "One book." said Lord Salisbury,

more than one occasion has drawn me
out of bed very early iu the morning
This is Dumas' 'Monte-Christo. A few
months ago I was staying at Sandring-

alKat half past 4 in the morning I get
up and went into the beautiful grounds
and sat down feu: an hour or two to bo

an hour when I heard some one say:
'What! Are a prime minister's duties
so heavy that he must needs be up so
early in order to study? I turned find
saw the I'rinee of Wales. I showed
hini the book that had drawn me out
so early, and he said laughingly that
he wouhl read such an apparently fas

the Csu that eats ducks.. When one
misses some ducks and Is toid by tlie

lug, soon after tlie ducks had been let
out and had, as usual, made their way
to the tank, on one side of which
stands an indigo assistant's bungalow,
the old khansama excitedly announced
that tho big fish had just caught an
other duck aud swallowed it and could
not keep down with it. The gun was
at once got hold of, and after watching
tho antics of the fish trying to keep
down under water he was shot. He
proved to be a large boali and had ac
