Before I en.i this yarn I think I will
fall a story. We always M to tell
stones, anl sometime3 a good many of
them, every night after We ;ot home
from our day s shooting. There is a ne
Kroman at City Point so old that nobody
knows how old he is-oneof those old
knock kneed negroes abont 100 years old
all twisted tip and doubled tip with
rhenmatism. who walks or crawls about
with the assistance of two cares, and is
known as Uncle Joe. One day the old
fellow was slowly making his way
through the village street when alon
came a whito man, a very w 11 known
character in that town, "half teas over "
He was pretty nearly "as full f s a goat "
and he happened to have his rifle with
him. and a crack shot he if , whether
drunk or sober. As soon as h i saw Un
cle Joe seated on the stump he sung out:
"I say, Uncle Joe, let me put a potato
on top of your head and shoo: it off. I
will give yon fifty cents if I bt st the po
tato or a dollar if I kill ye."
The old negro looked up ar d replied:
"Do you say, boss, you will gh e me fifty
cents if you bust the potato .r a dollar
if yer kill me?"
"Yes," wa-s the reply.
"Well, den, go ahead, boss," said the
The potato was placed on the top of
the old negro's head, and the vhite man
daggered off alo"nt thirty aces and
drew a bead. The smoke 'and fire shot
from the rifle and the potato spun higu
in the air.
" Well, 1 11 be shoved," said Jim, "I did
do it, or I'm a sojer'.''
He staggered up to Uncle Jo.', fumbled
around hi two or three of hi pockets,
fished out a half dollar and hhnded it to
The old man seemed very much sur
prised. It was a long time i-ir ce he had
seen so much money, lie lot ked at it
l-'vingly, bit it, turned it over, looked up
to Jim, and said, "Well, boss. I'se sorry
I did not .-it do dollar." I'orest and

A crowd f eight or ten Ihivs were
shouting ar I disputing in Elizabeth
street, near Canal, and the "Ixss" finally
commanded silence and said:
"Now, then. Jim and Jack is to try to
look each otiier out o countenance. Set
that bar! down here."
A barrel half full of rubbish was lifted
down on the walk, and Jim placed hi
hands on one side and Jack on the other,
and they stood thus while they bent
their heads forward until their noses
were only a foot apart.
"Now begin to look," said the boss, as
the crowd encircled the barrel, "and
the first feller as has tears in his eyes is
Before taking his place at ihe barrel
Jim had turned from the crowd and
taken a bite of something slyly extracted
from his hind px-ket. The mystery of
his action was soon explained. The pair
hadn't been gazing into each other's op
tics over thirty seconds when Jack sud
denly cried out :
"Where's me backer? I wa it to put
in a claim of foul! This henr kid ha.
took a bite ;iC raw onion and ii breathin
into my eye to make the tears come!"

In the churches fur colored people in
some parts of the south, when a collec
tion is to If taken, the tmx, instead of
l-ing passed from pew to pew. is de
jmsited npon a table in front o" the pn'
pit and the brethren and siste-s are ex
horted to come forward and put their
contributions into it. A writer in The
Christian Union says:
I had slipped into a back st-at of a
large African church at Col nubia, S.
C, one Sunday evening, and was watch
ing the taking or the offertory, when one
of the deacons, with that tact which be
longs to alnn t all the colored t ace, came
and politely offered to carry np for mo
any contnbption which I ear n, to make.
I handed him a twenty-five t ent piece,
ami with inimitable iH.mjHisity he
marched down the L i i -r aisl". carrying
the beggarly coin so that everybody
could see it. Suddenly he turned on his
heel and started back, while the curious
eyes of the crowd all turned to follow
him. Arrived within speaking distance,
the good old man called out, :n a whis
per audible to half the congregation:
"Do yon want any change?" Y'onth's

Uncle Isaac Thompson, an aged col
ored man living in the Jersey pines, was
very sick. His wife nursed him faith
fully, seldom leaving his bedside. One
morning when the doctor drove up to
the house he was surprised t see her
sitting disconsolately on the doorstep
with her apron thrown over her face.
"Why, Aunt Sallie," he called out,
"what is the matter? Anything wrong
with my patient?" "Oh, doctah," soblied
the old woman, "when dat -pore man
waked np dis momin he found hisself
dead." New Y'ork Tribune.
