No farther ran my fable, but methonght
The ear that listens still, in wonder hears

"It's Rusiuess, Don't You Know?"
It was a patented article, and seemed to
have a fairly good. sale, but the manufac
turvr was troubled.
"I dout seem to lie able to keep them up
to the standard, " he explained. "Every
now and then the men get careless or some
thing goes wrong, and some inferior ar
ticles are turned out, and every one sold
does us harm. It destroys confidence in

said the patent medicine man, who had his
feet on a desk and was puffing earnestly at
"Throw away everything that doesn't
come up to the standard set, I supposef"
said the manufacturer.
"That's one way."
"But I can't afford it. Think of the hole
it would make iu my profits."
"Of course. And it would be a criminal
waste, too. Sell 'em, my friend sell the
worst of 'em, but advertise everywhere 'be
ware of imitations.' "
"For what purpose?"
"So that when a man gets one that's in
ferior he'll think it's an imitation. That's
the way to sell the bad with the good with

'Where the Other Half Was.
A young minister in the course of an
eloquent sermon on the pomps and vanities
of the world staggered his congregation by
'Here am I standing here preaching to
you with only half a shirt on my back,
while you sit there covered with gewgaws
and other baubles."
The next day a parcel containing several
brand new shirts was left at his house by
one of his hearers, a kind hearted old lady.
Meeting the donor a few days afterward he
thanked hi r exceedingly, but expressed
much surprise at receiving such an unex
"Oh," said the lady, "you mentioned in
your sermon on Sunday that you had only
half a shirt on your back."
"Quite true,"' added his reverence, "but
you seem to forget the other half was in
front." London Tit-UIts.
The Derby Iid Not Wait for Alexis.
There is a very good story told of Priuoe
Alexis of Russia and his anxiety to see the
Derby. Unfortunately, on this important
occasion he arrived at the station too late
to catch the last train, which would have
brought him there in time for the race.
He therefore telegraphed to the stewards
of the Jockey club: "Have missed train.
Kindly postpone Derby till 4 o'clock.
Signed, Prince Alexis." It is needless to
say that by the hour named England was
ringing with Sir Hugo's victory. Phila

strangers are adopted. The Chinese pre
