The importance of his new position
weighed heavily upon him, and he strug

his brain, and ho looked haughtily at

One day the new man, with the unfor

There w is little success until suddenly
the newly made fly cop grasped his part

The man from the Uinteenth boarded
the car and flashed his star on the con
ductor, who, of course, pulled the bell at
once. Then the ambitious detective
walked up to the tall man and said: "I've
got yon now. Come along with me."
The gentleman turned-and said: "I
guess j on've made a mistake, my friend.
You don't know me."
"But I do, my boy, and that's tho

It Was Soup or Nothing
Si ace an unpleasant experience at a
hot 1 in a little town up in Iowa a short
time ago I have made it a rule to always
take' soup. At this hotel I answered in
the negative when asked by the fair
waitress if I would "have soup." There
waf no one else in the room at the time,
but pretty 6oon another gentleman came
in and sat down. He was asked the
usual question, and he responded in the
affirmative and got his 6oup. The girl
then left the dining room and did not
ret'irn. I thought it strange she did not
take my order for dinner, but my wait
wa all in vain, and after I had been
waiting for 20 minutes or half an hour
she stuck her head out through two cup
boiird doors opening from the kitchen
and cried out, "Dinner is over." I went
without my dinner while the other man
go' his soup. From what I learned of
this hotel afterward this was the regu
lar menu for each day at dinner, and 1
fu:"thr learned that the proprietor was
a vegetarian. Cor. St. Louis Globo
A Mark of Vulgarity.
Vulgarity marks the man or woman
w'-io is given to general backbiting and
ut jefleeting slander to tho glad propa
gation of scandalous stories respecting
people of whom he or she can know noth

ority to be able to thus besmirch tho
eimino of those who aro set in high
p'aces and whoso moral influence de
pends on their fair fame. If they are of
such base material, what may not be
p irdoued to the confessedly coarser clay?
and are not the lesser fry in their own
s nail way superior to these grander fel

lncrranecl Sound at Night.
I would like to ask if you have ever
noticed the acoustic phenomenon of
jrreater audibility of sounds after night
fall? There have been hundreds of at
tempts to account for this singularity in
the matter of sounds, the theories being
ulmost as numerous as the theorists
themselves. The ancients noticed that
the intensity of all sounds was increased
at night and ascribed the phenomenon
to various causes, some almost as absurd
as the reasons (?) assigned by certain mod
em scientists. St. Louis Republic.
