A guest comes, and there Is nothing
at all lu the bouse to eat. The host
asks, "Where shall we get meat for
our guest to eat?".
The reply Is, "Let us kill the cat."
"No," speaks up the cat. T can see
all night; I can catch mice. The dog is
an idle fellow who only knows how to
bark. Kill him."
"No," sjeak8 up the dog. "I guard
the house and keep away thieves. The
master cannot do without me. Go and
kill the. silly sheep. The sheep must
always be cared for and can neither
bark nor bite."
"No," speaks up the sheep. "I bear
wool from which warm clothing Is
made. What would men do for winter
bats If I was gone? Kill the stupid
cow, whoso hair Is not an Inch long
and who has much more flesh than I."
"No," speaks up the cow. "I draw
the plow which prepares the earth for
rice, and the master would starve were
it not for me. I cannot be spared. Go
to the Hon. The Hon Is a wild beast
and our enemy. Kill the Hon."
4No," snys the host, "for it la the Hon
who Is our guest. It Is for him we
want the meat!"
At this moment the Hon conies out
and gives a big roar, at which nil the
animals run away, and the poor lion is
left with nothing to eat. Small Folks.
A Wonderful Memory.
Ross MucGregor, Chilton, Wis., aged
fourteen, we are told by a Chicago pa
per, lias learned by rote every word In
Webster's Unabridged Dictionary from
A to E, Including the definitions, deri
vations, spelling, pronunciation and
synonyms. Boss entered school when
but three years old and at the age of
six passed from the kindergarten to the
sixth grade. Mathematics or stndies
requiring great mentnl effort are mas
tered by him with astonishing ease,
and selections of poetry or prose be
come fixed in his mind at a single read
ing. . At the age of ten he memorized
the whole of Shakespeare's "Merchant
of Venice," reciting it without a halt
at the end of two hours' study. At a
teachers' Institute in Chilton three
years ago, when Ross was eleven, an
instructor rend to the assembly a selec
tion from Huxley and then nnexpcted
ly asked If any one present could re
peat any part of It from the single
reading. Without faltering or making
the slightest error Ross gave the selec
tion, much to the surprise of the in
structor, who then tried him with a
dozen or more extracts from different
authors, with the same result.
Such stories are hard to believe, but
this one comes well credited. Ameri
A Good Old tin me of Cat.
Middle aged men can remember that
when they were Imys In the d:tys be
fore baseball Ixvame so popular in
fact, when that game was almost un
knownthey used to play "one hole
cat," a same from which some say
baseball was originally derived.
There Is an old Scottish game of
much the same name as the popular
game of the fifties, but which Is con
siderably different in the way it is
played. The game Is called "cat In the
hole," and, old as It is, it is capable of
affording good sport yet.
In playing this game six shallow
holes are dug rather nearer together
than the bases in baseball and ar
ranged so as to .form a d.lanjpnd Imtbe

A eer Way of Telltnu Time.
In Malay the natives keep a record of
time In the following way:
Floating In a bucket Oiled with wa
ter they placed a cocoanut shell having
a small perforation, through which by
slow degrees the water found Its way
inside. This opening was so propor
tioned that It took just one hour for
the shell to fill nnd sink. Then a
watchman called out, the shell was
emptied, and they began again.
Such 'trifles as minutes and seconds
were not heeded on the peninsula.
Fancy any one asking the time In Ma
lay and being told the coacoanut shell
was half full!
There was a young girl of Malay
Who inquired the time of the day.
Said the watchman. "Well, well.
By my cocoanut shell
'Tis half afternoon, I should say."
Thought Roodlrr Too Warm.
Wee Harold was spending the after
noon In the suburbs with a friend of
his mamma's who had chickens.
The child was much attracted to the
chicken yard and particularly to a
large rooster that kept flapping his
wings and crowing quite frequently.
Finally be went to his mamma and,
with a trembling voice, said:
"Mamma, the poor old rooster is aw
ful warm. He keeps fanning himself
and making a big noise. Won't you
give me some ice water for him?"

EFFICACY OF THE ONION.
-Apply I Outside and Inside and Cure
The idea of nn onion cure may not
strike the fancy of the aesthetic. How
ever, the experience of those who have
tried it Is that it works wonders in re
storing a racked system to Its normal
state again. There are three kinds of
doses in the onion cure, or three onion
cures, as you choose to put It. One is a
diet of onions, the other Is onion plas
ters and the third is onion sirup.
It Is claimed by those who believe lu
the onion cure that a bad cold can be
broken up if the patient will stay in
doors nnd feed on a liberal diet of
onions. It need not le an exclusive
diet, but a lileral one. For Instance,
nn onion cure breakfast includes a
poached egg on toast, three tablespoon
fuls of fried onions and a cup of coffee.
Luncheon of sandwiches, made of Ros
ton brown bread, buttered and filled
with finely chopped raw onions, sea
soned with salt and pepper, makes the
second meal on the schedule. For sup
per the onions may le fried as for
breakfast and eaten with a chop and n
The strange efficacy of onions is well
known to the singers of Italy and
Spain, who eat them every day to im
prove the quality of their voices nnri
keep them smooth. Onion plasters are
prescribed to break up bard coughs.
They are made of fried onions placed
between two pieces of old muslin. The
plaster Is kept quite hot until the pa
tient Is snugly In lied, when it Is placed
on the chest to stay overnight. Onion
sirup is a dose that can be bought of
any druggist nnd is claimed by some to
le unequaled as a cure for a cold In the
All this is probably quite true. For
to be done up with onions, both Inside
and out. would be enough certainly to
chase out any self respecting cold.
