They do just what is needed

THE LAST STRAW.
Too Much for Hint He Didn't
"Want the Breeches.
One of the ablest men of a century
ago in freaks of tho imagination and
general airy embellishment of simple
facts was one Monsieur Jarbo, a Gascon,
for a long time a resident in Paris. In
his service was an old valet known as
Jean, whose unquestioning faith and
earnest devotion had done more to ren
der permanent the habit of shooting
with the long bow, which so marked his
master, than all other causes combined
This resulted from the latter invariably
calling upon him after getting off some'
particularly fine effort in the way of fic
tion, to clinch it as a matter within his
personal knowledge. And when the
gray headed old servitor corroborated
with all seriousness the inventive Jarbo's
narratives, there were few indeed who
didn't at least pretend to believe even
his most wonderful tales.
Of course there were reasons for this
compliance of Jean's apart from any
particular tie of sentiment between him
sen ana master. 1 ne oia xeiiow naa a
wwiknt-ss for finery and dress. When
ever, therefore, Jarbo had a dinner party
for whose astonishment, if not edifica
tion, he had concocted the narration of
some startling exploit, he always pre
ceiled the event by the present to Jean
of a new doublet, a pair of silk stockings,
shoe buckles or other garment. On these
occasions the valet's presence was al
ways secured by his acting as the chief
of the table attendants.
One day, -when Jarbo expected several
high government dignitaries, he gave
Jean a particularly neat pair of breeches.
The very sight of them made his heart
dance with delight, although he felt that
such a gift must le the prelude to a
more than usually strong demand upon
him for dinner story indorsement.
Nor was he disappointed. At table
that night Jarbo excelled himself. Never
had he painted his personal exploits in
such weird colors. Even Jean, hardened
as he was, grew pale at his masters
stretching it, and for a moment left the
room. Finally Jarbo turned, with the
"And here is old Jean who was with
me at the time, and will prove it."
But his eyes started from his head and
his jaw dropped as the valet put a bundle
in his bauds.
"Take back the breeches, sir. 1 can't
do it. It's too much for even me."
The worm had turned, the last 6traw
had broken the camel's back. Philadel
