Value of Accuracy.
A man of businesslike aspect invaded
a down town shoe shop yesterday morn
ing and said, :
"I sre yon claim to do invisible
patching. Can you put nu invisible
patch on this shoe?"
"Yes, sir," replied the proprietor.
"Sure? I don't want it done unless
yon can, because this is one of my swell
shoes and I don't want it to show."
"If I don't put an invisible patch on
it, I won't charge you anything for the
"All right. Go ahead."
The shoemaker took the shoe, and in
about fifteen minutes brought it back to
him neatly repaired.
"Il'm!" ejaculated the customer. "I
think the bargain was that if you
didn't put an invisible patch on it you
wouldn't charge anything, wasn't it?"
"This is the patch, isn't it?"
"Well, it's perfectly visible What
you meant was, I presume, that you
could make the evidences of its being a
patch invisible, but you ought to have
said so. A bargain's a bargain. Let this
be a lesson to you. Good morn"
"Hold on. I can fix that all right,"
said the shoemaker.
Ho took the shoe again, ran a sharp
knife under one edge of the patch, ap
plied a pair of sharp nippers, dexterously
ripped it off, threw it behiud a work
bench and handed the shoe back again.
"There," ho said, "is your shoo, and
the patch, i4 you'll notice, isn't visiblo
now. Let this be a lesson to you. Good

The chief reason why alfalfa hay will
grow in the short grass country is that
it has long roots. They have been known
to strike 25 feet deep for moisturo. The
plant will not thrivo, therefore, in soil
that is not open and deep. An ideal
place for its growth is along the river
bottoms in the western part of Kansas
laud under which great lakes of "sheet
water," wiles upon miles in extent, aro
found from 10 to 25 feet below the sur
face. Tho roots of alfalfa readily push
down to the water and drink when they
need moisture, and the result is that
tho plant Llofsoms aud prospers and be
comes a never failing source of revenue
to the man who cultivates it. On the
rolling uplands, where there is scarcely
an average rainfall of 25 inches a year,
the plant will live aud produce bay
nearly always. It makes good pasturage
under ordinary conditions there and is
almost certain every year to produce a
fine crop of seed. All the uplands arc
fertile enough, the only trouble about
making use of that fertility being the
lack of moisture. Irrigation has not yet
succeeded in bringing water in abun
dance to tho assistance of the tiller of
the soil in this region, aud therefore
only such a plant can live as has deep
roots aud a pertinacity that even the
hot winds of Kansas cannot shake.

One of the Kaiaer'a Jokes.
There are many good anecdotes about
tho German emperor, aud it must bo
owned that they all prove the kaiser to
bavo no small amount of humor. The
followiuR, which comes from Herr
Khlers, tho traveler, is smarter than
most. Tho emperor and Ehlcrs were
college chums from Bonn, and the em
peror never forgot his old collego stu
dent. At Bonn, on special occasions,
tho different corps used to drink to one
another, and tho following set form was
always usid: The president of the Pala
tia corps raises his glass, saying, "I
have tho gre at honor and pleasure to
empty my glass in drinking to the corps
of Jiorussia. " Tho president of tho lat
ter corps then replies, "The corps
thanks and drinks." On tho birth of
one of the sous of the emperor Ehlers
telegraphed him, "I havo tho great
honor and pleasure to empty my glass
in drinking to tho youngest Hoheuzol
leru." The emperor promptly wired
back, "The youngest Ilohenzollern
tluiiiks and drinks." Toronto Chron

According to the best authorities, less
than uuo thousaud-milliouth part of tho
sun's rays reaches tho earth. It is for
tnnato that- this is so, as any consider
able concentration of the rays upon our
planet would speedily destroy it. Ac
cording to tho same account, if all of
the ieo at the north polo were so piled
that the hi at of the sun could bo focused
on it, it would dissolve at tho rato of
H00, 000, 000 miles of solid ice per sec
oud. The heat is estimated to gener
ate energy at tho rato of 10,000 horse
power to every square foot of space.
Tho beginning of tho radiat-.ou of heat
from the sun must date back something
liko 100, 000, 000 years. Like everything
else, it had its start aud must have its
finish. It may contiuuo for 15,000,000
or 20,000,000 years longer, but there
is a limit and it must bo reached. One
cannot but wonder at the condition of
tho universe at that time and what will
come after. New York Ledger.

Tho following anecdote i3 sent by a
Kentucky correspondent, who says it is
the exact truth :
"A young man who had not found it
convenient to pay a tailor's bill was
brought up on a creditor's bill by the
cruel tailor before a very kind hearted
vice chancellor, who liked tho youth.
He was handsomely dressed and wore a
costly diamond ttud in his shirt bosom,
but declared under oath that he had no
property except his wearing apparel.
The tailor's lawyer claimed that a dia
mond stud was not an articlo of exempt
apparel and asked for its surrender, but
the judge rub d that the cliiimoud but
ton bold the parts of tho shirt together
and its removal would lead to indecent
exposure of the person. Then the law
yer urged that the shirt was of a new
kind which buttoned in tho back, but
the judge met this by saying: 'The pre
sumption of tho law is that shirts but
ton in front, and the court does not ju
dicially knew thut shirts ever button in
tho I ack. Tho court will not require
tho defendant to submit to an examina
tion to rebut the prcsr.mpi.iou. ' And so
tho diann nd remained in tho bosom
which cherished it."

"That's tho way yon shoot."

"Rooms to rent for light housekeep

into tho windows of down at tho heel

bearing a prosperous air, house occu
pants who "have experienced reverses."
Just where the lino is drawn between
the light and heavy variety of this do

you buy your pastry in bags at tho bak

i;t which to receive tho morning milk
man, you are oLliged to lay iu wait for
that personage at corners, then you aro
a "light housekeeper" though peihaps
your burdens are heavy.
We are prone to look upon these
humble housekeepers as being without
homo or country, because their foothold
upon the terra flrma of society is so
light, but often thero is muc'j, snnguess

which awaits him, aud wliich, unlike

Marriages In Southern India.
Tho inhabitants of southern India
have peculiar marriage customs, accord
ing to Dr, Bceck, tho German ixplorer.
There aro always two iiu.niago cere
monies, he says, one taking place whon
tho betrothed ones aro mire infants
aud tho ether when the bridegroom
takes his wife to his r,vu homo. At tho
infant marriage rites two brothers of
tho boy place him i n an elephant and
tako him around to .jive bim a glimpse
of the city whero he and bis bride aro
to live, and at the same time the girl's
mother is doing her share by tinging lo
tbe little ono a marriage song.
At tho final marriage ti e mother-in-law
leads tho young husLand by the
noso into a room, where his frit nds and
relatives aro awaiting bim, and, amid
tho loud noise of tamtams, the shrill
whistle of pipes and tho roaring of
trumpets, the bride enters, unveiled.
She gives tho men present mi opportu
nity to gaze at her, because in futuro no
man but her bus! aud may look at her
face. Should this rule bo broken at any
time, her husband must coiymit sui
cide, and she must bo burned iu a fu
neral pyre before the sin is blotted out.
The bride is placed iu a basket during
tho Brahman marriage ceremony, and
when it is over she emerges veiled aud
closely guarded by her husband and his
friends. New York Tribune.

This Wheeler did and a short timo later
was captured by the Union troops aud
was sent with Jefferson Davis north to

master General Reagan were taken with
him, and on tho way north General
Wheeler says that Stephens thought ho
was going to sure death. He said as

Stephens raised his bauds and replied:
