Mr. Lewis does not carry a large

His nose was out of plumb, and when he opened his mout& it could be
seen that his teeth had been tampered with. Qne arm was in^ ^Ljboflr
and he smelled like a dispensary.
I^The defendant was a well dressed man of middle agetuad peacelul
mien. Once or twiceTie glanced at the plaintiff, and a glpam of un
holy joy lighted his face but he did not look like a,fighting, man.

''What have you to say?" asked Judge Myers of the plaintiff^
^J|"It was an unprovoked assault," said the man thus addressed^
"I met Mr. on Kemfi avenue and passed the time of day. Without
a word of warning he attacked me."
The magistrate turned to '"the defendant, who at the words "un-"
provoked assault" had glared'at his accuser, and thundered,' "What
have you to'say?" 'rd
The defendant cleared his throat ancl Begun in a mil one

afraid to take off my heavy undarwear. My wife put a poultice on my
chest this morning, and,fearing that a thunder shower'might come up,
she made me wear my overshoes. I came down town on the sunny side
of'the street and got pretty well warmed up by the time I reached Mid*
way where I went into the Dakota Central Telephone Exchange to talk
over the "hay line" with a Dutchman near Rauville that stutters, and
Grant and Thompson, those fellows who run that automobile garage on
Midway made such a deuce of a racket running their cars up and down
Midway in front of the telephone office that I had to shut the booth
in order to hear anything at all."
"Turn on that electric fan, please,-Mr. Schoenbergerv 'said^the
judge addressing his clerk*

"A certain man owned a dry'goods^store, and one day, to his great
disgust, he heard a new clerk say to a woman, ?®p:
'No madam, we have not had any for a long time.' i&s
"With a fierce glance at the clerk, the smart employer rushe&' up
to.the woman and said,
'We have plenty in reserVSTmk'am Aplenty upstairs.''
"Lady and clerk looked dazed,and afterward the smart proprietor
learned that the clerk's remark had been made in answer to the woman's
'We haven't had any rain lately.'
"A Watertown man who is addicted to walking in his sleep went to
bed all right and ,'some'time during'the night he strayed down on.
Kemp avenue clad in nothing but his night dress. He awoke to find
himself in the grasp 'of a policeman. "Hold on," he cried, "you
musn't arrest me. I'm a somnambulist." .To which the burly copper
replied, "I don't care what your religion ia^-you have no right to walk
the streets in your night shirt."
It is so dry in several states that the Ohio river bottom is now be
ing used by boys as a base ball ground. [That beats South Dakota for
dryness to a delicate froth. There never "was a time in the memory of

ball in the river bed of the Sioux.
