A Bark For Barker.
The otor sat in his easy chair. Edi
ors always have easy chairs-in fle
tion. le thought he recognized the
handwriting on one of the envelopes.
"Another poeim," saild he, reaching
for the waste paper basket. Ile open
ed the letter. Ile was agreeably dis
appointed. It was prose. It ran as
"A. man nanied Barker had a dog
that barked, so he called it Barker be.
eause it barked and because his own
name was Barker. So the inin was
Itarker, and the dog that barked was
Parker. The man didn't bark, al
though his name was Barker. Barker
and Barker went for a walk, and
Barker barked-that is, dog Barker,
not mann Barker. In fact, dog Barker
barked so much that man Barker said:
'arker, don't bark so often. You nev
er hear me bark.' Just then man
Barker barked his shin on the hark of
a tree and barked like anything."
The editor paused. There was a note
Anclosed, which ran, "Please send check
pgr Inclosed to ie at 1001 Barker ave
nue, city." Thei, did th deus ex
machina write, withii a smile, "I have
eived Your Joke and will send c' theck

Legend of St. Winifred Well.
A romantile legend hangs around St.
Winifred well. Cradocus, a neighbor
ing prince. smitteu with the beauty of
a Ilolywell damsel and roused to auger
by her coyness, struck off her head as
she fied from his unwelcome attentions.
The head, rolling down the hill, rested
wear the church, and from the spot the
present. copious spring gushed rorth
as the earth opened to swallow up the
nqasin. St. Benno, who was passing,
picked Up the head and, with a skill
which is now lost to the medical pr>
feslon, restored the maiden, with only
a slender white line on her neck as evi
dence of the miracle. But not only did
the well - spring from 'the spot where
the head rested, but the moss oi Its
'p,.rlnk was supposed to be possessed of
p particularly fragrant smell, while the
'locd marks on the stones, assumied
m ny beautiful tinti. on Jtiie 22, the
anniversary of the event. Today the
well is contained in a rectpngular
bildling, and the water flows into a
ldge bAsin in the shape of an eight
piuted star.-London Chronicle.
Handling Live Wires.
Never handle an electric wire (lest it
Vi "allve") with 'the noked hand, but
use a nonconducting substance as a
protector. Any .good 'nonconducting
albstance will supply protection.
Rubber-In form of gas stove tube
or water hose, could be thrown over a
wire to pull it from Its connection with
a live wire.
ftreelain-rn form of a bit of com
aD crockery or a floor tile, hand plate
Jor door, a stone ink bottle.
Glass-A stout bottle, a glass rod or
a pane of' glass could be used to dis
edge a wit'e from Its connection with
a tmlley wire- or- other current feeder.
Wool-A woolen scarf, stocking, coat
Cotton--Any piece of cotton garment
er stout cotton twine.
Silk-Seart or other garment.
Any og tihese- materials in go~dly
thinaess oould be used to protect the
hand 1kh removing a live wire or even
using an. ntument to cut It through.
Spain's Canny Railroads.
In Spakh the railroads do not lose a
'ehance te. make a little profit even in
le- case, of the nontravelers. When
you see- somebody off in that country
you must pay for the privilege. The
railroads all sell billetes de anden,
which are good for the platform only.
'These cost generally 5 centimos, eqiiv
alent to a- cent in1 American money.
Just why this ia done it is hard to see,
because persons entering a train can
not very well avoid the conductor, who
be always making trips to inspect the
carriages. If a person attempted to
steal a ride in a carriage, he would
have small chance of getting away
with it. If eaught, he wvould have to
pay a penalty of just twice the fare
between the point where lie was dis
covered and the point where tickets
last were insected.--New York Sun.
