HE WAS.
When Harold was four years old,
he went up town to spend a nickel
that had been given to him. At the
toy store he found "just a dandy
horn," but, unfortunately for him, it
cost ten cents.
I The Rev. Father O'C , who was
standing near, noticed the little fel
low's disappointment, and said, "I
will tell you how to earn the other
nickel, Harold. If you tell, me what
I am (thinking to sec if the little
child knew the word "priest") I will
pay you a nickel."
Harold was a very shy child, but the
thought of the dandy horn that would
be his very own finally overcame his
timidity, and he stammered, "Well
well yoUr'rc an Irishman."
He got the nickel. Exchange.

AFTER THE THAW TRIAL.
!
"Taking an early vacation as I did,
I was the only man at the summer re
sort." "Got lots of attention from the
women, I s'posc?"
I "Couldn't have gotten more if I
had been a convicted murderer."'--Washington
Herald.
"I can sec you're worried1 about me,
dear," said the very sick man.
"Oh, not at all," replied his wife
promptly.
"But why do you look so gloomy,
j then?"
"I was thinking whether my seal
skin sacque would be considered
mourning."r-PhiJadelphia Press.

I NO NAMES APPEARED.
An Exchange tells this:
An Indiana- hardware dealer getting
provoked because his customers failed
to show up with the coin they owed,
( pasted on the front of his building a
notice which read: "This sign is for
the people who owe . me andi don't
come inside; watch this space their
names will appear." It is said that
thc notice attracted much attention
rrnd comment, but the merchant did
Jlbt find it necessary to print any
. . names.
It has been said that "work is what
you don't want to do. If you want to
do it, it's play." Then would it not be
much better to make play of our
work? A" child will exert itself phy
sically for an hour or more at play
and not tire; but give it something
not half so hard to lo, and call it
work,' and it soon tires of it. Our
lives might often (be made much hap
pier if wc could go about our daily
duties as a child docs about its play.
Can't wc learn a lesson from the
child. Dallas Retail Merchant.

PROBABLY SHE MEANT IT.
Lucilc, a carefully brought up little
girl of five years, returned from her
first party in great glee.
"I was a good, girl, mamma," she
announced, "and talked nice all the
time."
"Did you remember to say some
thing pleasant to Mrs. Townsend just
before leaving?" her mother asked.
"Oh, yes, I did," was the enthusias
tic reply. "I smiled and said, 'I en
joyed myself, Mrs. Townsend; I had
a lot9 better dinner than I thought I'd
have.' "-Exchange.
o
If you come down to the store some
morning with a strong wind blowing
from the cast, just caution the clerks
to hold themselves steady and be par
ticularly pleasant and agreeable, be
cause the devil and all will be to pay
with your customers. There is some
thing about an cast wind that plays as
unfavorably upon people's nerves as
docs a tom-cat concert on the back
fence. White House Magazine.
