of this colossal deal, therefore, will
not be to either crown or uncrown
anybody, but to assure everybody a
great deal more entertainment for
the established price of admission
than has ever heretofore been given,
while at the same time tending to
protect them from the incursions of

He Kept Ills Seat.
He got on the street car and, of
course, he did not tuck up his coat-
tails. That would be too awfully
plebein. He Hoped down on the
front seat of the oDeti car not the
motorman's seat, but the one just
back of the windows, so that he
could rest his pollshd boots on the
seat opposite. A young lady stop
ped the car and started to get into
the seat just behind the young man.
Of course, he beat forward. The
ca gave a lurch and the young lady
raised the back of the seat where
the man was sitting, a little. It
carne down squarely on the young
fellow's coat tails. A party of school
girls got on and filled the front and
second seats. Then the girls leaned
forward, resting their elbows on the
back of the seat occupied by the
young man, and those on the seat
placed their arms on the back so
that the whole crowd could chat
comfortably. The car filled up and
a young lady got on. The young
man tried to rise. It wad impossi
ble, and when the girls saw what
was the matter, of course they press
ed harder on the seat back. There
the young man was, aad he
was carried four blocks beyond his
corner before he had nerve enough
to ask the girls to move their arms.
They apologized profusely, justasif
they had not known the trouble all
the time. Memphis Hcimitar.
Some Wise Saying.
When men grow virtuous In their
old age they are merely making a
sacrifice to God of the devils leav
He whose first emotion, on the
view of an excellent production, is
to undervalue it, will never have one
of his own to show. Aikin.
Creditors have better memories
than debtors; and creditors are a
superstitious sect, great observers of
set days and times. Franklin.
For the credit of virtue must be
admitted that the greamst evils
wMeh befall m uikind are caused by
their crimes. La Rochefoucauld.
We ought in humanity no more
despise a man for the misfortunes of
the mind than for those of the body,
when they are such as he cannot
Consolation indiscreetly pressed
upon ns when we are suffering un
der affliction, only serves to Increase
our pain, and to render our grief no
more poignant. Rosseau.
Justice is In general only a living
apprehension of being deprived of
what belongs to us; hence arise our
great consideration and respect for
all the interests of our neighbor, and
our scrupulous care to avoid doing
him an injury. This fear retains
men within the limits of those ad
vantages which birth or fortune has
given them: and without It, they
would be making continual inroads
upou others. La Rochefoucauld.
