FIRING A SALUTE.
The Way Two Xaval Greenhorns Did
It on a Warship.
"On one of Uncle Sam's warships
once," said a naval officer, "we had
enlisted among our able seamen two
Irishmen, Mike and Barney. They had
come aboard three days after they had
landed in the country, but they learned
some thiugs so quickly that they had
acquired a very detiuite Idea of the
meaning of the Fourth of July long be
fore the day arrived, which was some
thing like a month after we had sailed
on our cruise. It chanced that the two
were on an early morning watch to
gether when Independence day dawned.
and they at once began to plan for its
proper welcome. They seemed to real
ize, you see, that there was necessity
for an unusual display of patriotism.
"Barney suggested they tire a salute
from one of the forward eight pound
ers, but Mike. feared that would rouse
the entire ship. 'Niver nioind,' an
swered Barney. 'Do ye hold a bucket
fernlnst the muzzle, an' 'twill deaden
the sound.' And -three minutes later
that gun went off with such a roar as
brought every man of the crew out of
the midst of peaceful dreams.
"I sent for Barney. .'Now, my man,'
said I, 'tell me everything.'
"'Sure, he faltered, 'it was only a

'"'And where's Mike? I demanded.
"Captain, dear, he groaned, 'he

And then the officer closed his story
with the simple statement, "But Mike
was never recovered."
Two men William Jones and John
Smith were neighbors and deadly en
emies. They often crossed swords In
court and out of it. and Jones, being
what might be called more clover than
Smith, Invariably got the lx-ttiT of the
encounter. In the end so cowed was
Smith that the slightest move on the
part of Jones made him nervous and
suspicious, and with the remark, "I
wonder what object he has In this?"
he called up all his reserve faculties to
combat the fresh attack which poor
Jones never contemplated.
One day a friend called on Smith and
greeted him with:
"Well, old man, have you heard the
"No," said Smith. "What news?"
"Jones Is dead. He died last night
at midnight," replied the other.
Smith paused, drew a hard breath,
raised his hand to his forehead and
thought, then blurted out:
'Dead, did you say Jones dead?
Great heavens, I wonder what object
he has In this?"

Why Savairea Torn In Their Toea.
In the first place, the foot naturally
takes that position when it has never
been confined 'by boots or the ankle
distorted by high heels. Convenience
is also on the side of the natural posi
tion of the foot in the case of the sav
age, for he has to do much walking
through long grass and undergrowth
in forests. Consequently his progress
would bo much impeded if he turned
his toes out to catch these obstacles
instead of brushing them aside and
outward, as he now does. Lastly, the
savage uses his foot much more as a
help to hi3 hands than we do, and it
is obvious that in doing this he must
turn his toes in. , ,

WHAT HE THOUGHT OF HIM
A Postal Card Serial Story and a
I-ost Salt For Slander.
A certain Kansas man, so the story
goes, wanted to tell a neighbor what
he thought of him without laying him
self open to a suit for damages. So he
hit on tlia plan of sending him each
day a postal card with only one word
written on it in a large hand, in addi
tion to the date obscurely tucked away
in a corner. ....
The person receiving the cards rec
ognized the handwriting and,, suspect
ing something, kept them until they
stopped coming, when he read them
consecutively in the order of their re
ception. What he read was, "Itidicu
lous old Bill Jones is the meanest cuss
In town," and he at once instituted a
suit for slander against the sender.5.
The latter's lawyer, however, called
attention to the fact that the postal
card containing "ridiculous," though
mailed first, was dated the day after
the date of the card having the word
"town." Moreover, a careful inspection
would show that after the word "ri
diculous" was an exclamation point,
and after the word "town" was an in
terrogation mark, so that the series of
postal cards might be made to read:
"Old Bill Is the meanest cuss In town?
Ridiculous!" He claimed, therefore,
that instead of slandering the plaintiff
his client had defended him from slan
der, and this plea was sustained by the
But, all the same, everybody in town
insisted that the first reading of the
cards was the correct one, so that the
writer attained his object.
