'I'lii' whip Hick In;; hero of thin story
had driven nn Irascible old follow a
pood three mik' Journey. When tho
fare climbed stillly out and slowly pro
duced a bit; pocket book cabby drew a
deep breath and prepared to bo sarcaH

near prevented all thought of his re
lieving his feelings by the use of pic
Cabby wutched his faro make a
lengthy mental calculation of tho dis
tance ho had been driven, select tho
exact legal faro, count It twice over
and then proffer It to him, with an ex
pression on his face plainly ludlcatlvo
of "Now, then, you dare dispute It and
I'll take your number."
But cabby didn't dispute It. Instead
he promptly accepted It; but, slipping
his hand Into another pocket, he pro
duced a farthing, which he handed to
"What's this for?" demanded tho old
"One fardon, eurrint coin of tho rol
lum, sir," said cabby, gathering up his
reins. "I druv yor Jest the exact dis
tance represented by arf of that there

A Dreaded Quilt.
Queen Victoria was an export and In
defatigable knitter. During tho Egyp
tian campaign sho and the ladles of the
household employed themselves In
knitting quilts, which at tho end of
tho war were sent to Nctley hospital
for the use of tho wounded. One of
those, made entirely by her majesty
and bearing an elaborato V. R. In the
center, was tho coverlet par excellence
of tho Institution and In universal de
mand for a time. In assessing tho
claims of the candidates for tho honor
of sleeping upon it tho medkial staff
naturally gavo tho precedence to tho
most severely wounded, and as the
most severely wounded was tho ono
most likely to die very soon, alas, an
ovll omen attached Itself to tho distinc
tion, the climax of which was reach
ed ono night when a poor soldier, fool
ing something touching his bedclothes,
woke up with perspiration pouring
down his face and cried out, "Oh, sir,
do anything you llko with me, but for
God's sake don't give mo tho quilt!"
The MenhaiilHin of the Salmon.
A salmon Is marvclously adapted to
the conditions amid which It lives. It
can cleave through tons of water fall
ing perpendicularly, yet Its fins and
its tall, which seem to hold tho pro
polling power, are not less fragllo than
tho wings of a bat. It can bo killed
without Injury to Its contour, and a
plaster cast of It can bo made, j'et no
mechanism can devise an Instrument
which will He In the water and move
as It does, and no theory of dynamics
has explained either Its postures in
tho water or Its motion. Slmplo In
Its organization as It seems, Its move
ments are as Inimitable by any human
contrivance as tho flight of a bird has
proved to be.
