Near tho lackwoods viUiigo of Tanner

road. It has a sharp bend in it about half

quite high. At the foot of that bank a field
stretvhos away in a gradual slope for prob

ini.-lineof 45 degrees. That sharp incline is

I was stii idius in tho road on the long and
crooked hi I listening to Undo Job Snyder,
tho great Lunter, benioauing tho decadence
of puno, hen Hill Morgan, a teamster from
t hu Sheosk y mills, appoai-ed. He had a pair
of Imbs with a good load of logs aboard, and
the load wiis drawn by a couple of small, do
spondent I xiking; mules. Bill stopped when
he came to th j hill to adjust bis brake chain,
for when learn comes down that hill with
a load the vagon or sled has got to have all
the bral;o on it that heavy chains can eive.
As Bill Morgan was adjusting his chains
cue 10 Jolt buyder said to me:
"Them milk's hain't got no more life in 'em
than a pair o. old rubber imots. I'm alluz
glad when 1 seo 'em raise this hill agoin' home,
i'er I lon"t want 'em to drop dead 'round
Bill Morgan set his brake chains and came
ondowutho hill. As tho mules passed us I
noticed t mt they certainly did look as if a
sudden tur would startle life awav from
them. T icy went us in a hopeless sort of
way, and had reached the very steepest part
of tile hi 1 when the brake chain separated
and the lobs and logs began pushing rather
savagely against tho heels of those little

verge of dissolution at thut do anything of
that kind No. They let those logs and
bobs prod them in tho heels two or three
times, and then, as if tho thing had all
been planned beforehand, au-ay they went
down tint hill. They went so fast that their
legs lool ed like spokes iu a trotting sulky be-

so fast ' hat if there hadn't liceu snow on the

scarcely havo seen them. Then tho Up of
tho firs;, ledgo was reached, and mules, Ikjds,

was ao mt to opeu Ins mouth and say, "That

Uko streaks of lightning down the second
slopo toward tho l.sdgo along tho creek. They
had broken their fastenings and shot over the
mules, but the nudes foUowud right on in
their v ako, holding the liobs Imhind thom. It
was like a shadow passiug over a field to see
those logs, mules and bobs flitting down that
slope. Tho top of the second ledgo was
reachi ;L, and tho whole cavak-ado disappeared
again. Nothing ramu in sight any more.
'Thar:'' exclaimed Undo Job, with a sigh
of reh '(, "Nolliin' kin ever niuko mo b'lieve

Humorous fcido of Their Business Illus
trated by Several Storiew. I
It is a popular idea that undertakers are a
very serious class of men whose lives are
throuded in the deepest gloom. Readers of
Dickens will remember that Mark Tapley,
when searching for a lot in lifo which would
afford the greatest possible opportunity of
being jolly under difficulties, was strongly in
clined to adopt that of nn undertaker. Hav
ing long believed this popular idea concerning
the men of coffins and shrouds and the life
they led to be a gross error, I havo for several
years past sought a clow friendship with th
leading undertakers In many of our principal
cities, and personally by letter have collected
their views and experiences of their profes
sion as regards itt -agreeableness, its health
fulness, its humors and its pleasures. They
all concur most heartily in the statements
mado to mo by ono of the oldest and most
successful undertakers in the country, who
lias carried on his business for nearly forty
years, and has seen hundreds of America's
most distinguished citi;us decently laid In
"Au undertaker's lifo is a very pleasant
one," he said "I shouldn't say "undertaker,'
though. We dropped that word some years
ago, and now call ourselves 'funeral di
rectors.' Away from our business, I think
I may safely say that we are tho joliiest set
of men living. You know that clowns and
comedians aro often said to be very grave in
private lifo because their work consisting in
being funny, it is relaxation for them to be
serious. Just so with an undertaker. He
must wear a mournful countenance and af
fect grief, or at least mournful sympathy, as
a very important part of his business, and
honce it is in itself a recreation for him to
throw all that off and bo lively and cheer
ful. An undertaker's life is calculated to
mnko a man jolly, not only for the reason
just mentioned, but because it has
nn intensely humorous side and be
cause the very funniest things I have
ever seen In real life havo been occurrences
at or In connection with funerals. To a large
class of persons, the burial of a friend is ao
occasion for mirth and enjoyment, though I
helievo that they mourn quite as sincerely as
those who wear long faces. I remember
officiating at the funeral of a noted saloon
keeper a fow years ago, and on tho road to
the cVmetery we encountered the cortege of a
rival publican. A race between the two fu
nerals was quickly improvised, and wo were
soon tearing along at such a furious rate that
when our hearse bounced over a large stone
in the road its doors flow open and tho corpse

"1 remember an amusing incident in con
nection with a prominent iron manufacturer
of national reputation, w-ho never loses an
opportunity of advertising his business, ne
purchased a cemctei-y lot and surrounded it
with a very ornamental fence of his own
manufacture. His wifo died soon afterward,
and when I had laid the good lady to rest he
erected to her memory a handsomo monu
ment, on which wero carved these words:
'Hero lie Mrs. Annie X., wifo of Quintiuk
X., proprietor of tho Iron works, where
the elegant fence around this lot was manu
faetured. Similar ones made to order.'
"Many years ago, when I first went into
the business, there lived in Brooklyn a family
whom I will call Meeder. Tho husband died
and I was called in. Ho had been a very
handsome man, and his wife had been very
much devoted to him. In making out the
carriage list I arranged to have the widow,
as was always customary at that time,
accompanied by hor dead husband's
brother, whose features were as repul
sively ugly as those of the dead man hod
been handsomo. When I came to read the
carriage list at tho funeral and the widow
learned of my arrangement tor tha first time
she screamed out at the top of her voice be
fore all the people: 'I won't go with that
tarnal ugly lookin' critter, but I'll foller
Meeder wherever he goes.'
"At tho funeral of a very aged millionaire
belonging to one of the old Knickerbocker
families of New York, which I once directed,
his widow, an old lady of 80 years, walked
into the room where he lay in his coffin about
a quarter of an hour before tho timo sot for
tho commencement of tho services and sat
down at the foet of tho corpse. Taking out
hor knitting she began to work at it very in
dustriously. Her granddaughter, observing
nor witn great surprise, said: Why,
grandma, surely you wouldn't knit at poor
grandpa's funeral f 'Wal,' responded the
good dame, 'I jest thought I might as well
draw out a few threads whilo tho people wore
gothcring.'" O. W. Christine in Chicago
IVmr Tray's Troubles.
James Tray, of Alien town, went to Louis
villo ono day and sat by tho open window of
the car on account of the hoat. Ho snoozed,
ana tns lalse teetb tell out of tho window.
As ho had Just paid $25 for them ho got out
at the next station, five miles from where the
teeth had escaped from him, and walked back-
to regain them. He found them. Thon ha
started to walk the five miles back to got the
next train. As he was crossing the railroad
bridge over tho Big Run a west bound freight
came along. Ho was walking on that track,
and stepixjd over ou tho licamsof the east
bound track. As he did so he glanced hack
and saw u freight train from tho west just
coming on tho bridge toward Inm. There
was no timo far him to get across the bridge
before tho train would be upon him, and he
did not dare to stand on the narrow space be
tween the tracks until the two trains passed.
Both locomotives sounded their danger sig
nals. There was but ono thing to do. Tray
seized a bridge beam or tie with his hands and
dropping quickly down hung by his fingers
until tho long train hail passed over him. He
then drugged himself back to the track.
The engineer of tho train was bringing it
to a stop, evidently to seo what had become
of Tray, but whon ho reappeared and tho con
ductor saw ho was all rigjit tho signal was
given to go ahead and the train went on
without taking Tray aboard. A mile further
on another eart liound freight camo along.
Tray thought it was running slow enough for
him to got on tho caboose. When tho rear of
the train was passing him he threw his
overcoat on tho platform of tho caboose and
grabbed tho rail to swing himself on. The
train was going faster than it looked, and
Tray could not get a footing. Ho had to
lot loose of tho rail, and ho was thrown twen
ty feet down the bank. The skin was scraped
off his face, hands and legs and ono ankle was
dislocated. The train rent on, taking Tray's
overcoat a brand new $30 coat with it.
In spite of his injured ankle and mutilated
face, hands and logs. Tray managed to get
over the remaining two miles of his journey,
reaching the station just as bis train came
in. Without waiting to have his injuries at
tended to he boarded the train. When the
conductor came around Tray remembered
that the conductor of tho first train had
taken up bis ticket for the entire journey.
He could not induce the second conductor to
pass him either on the strength of that fact
or of the story of his many mishaps and Tray
had to pay his fare over again. He went to
bed wondering whether it wasnt more than
likely that the ceiling will fall on him. Phil

" In ono store where I went to buy Hood's
Sarsaparilla the clerk tried to Induce me buy
their own Instead of Hood's; he told me thelr's
would last longer; that I might take It on ten
days' trial; that if I did not like it I need not
pay anything, etc. But he could not prevail
on me to change. I told him I knew what
Hood's Sarsaparllla was. I had taken it, was
satisfied with It, and did not want any other.
"When I began taking Hood's Sarsaparilla
I was fueling real miserable, suffering
a great deal with dyspepsia, and so weak
that at times I could hardly stand. I looked,
and had for some time, like a person In con
