IN A GOAT’S STOMACH.
Animal Had Taken Various Snacks to Appease Hunger. Buchanan’s goat is getting to be a terror In that end of town. Besides drinking beer and doing the tight rope ■ot, he has an appetite worse than that of an ostrich. He Invaded a neighbor’s back yard yesterday and war In the act of crawling outside a sack of potatoes when tho landlady discovered the situation and sent the hired girl after him. A little later he became suddenly Indisposed. A local veterinarian was called and applied the X-ray to the goat’s stomach which happened to contain among other mat ters one apple pie, two pairs of par lor slippers, four copies of the Pros pector, one War Cry. nine subpoenas, three bench warrants for John Doe, one package smoking tobacco, one yard linoleum, one box of tacks, one bisque doll and other articles too num erous to admit of inventory. He may recover. It was the pie that knocked him out. —Tombstone Prospector. The Rector’s Blunder. This is a verbatim report of a con versation that took place in an upper Broadway apartment one Thursday afternoon about six months ago: “Is this Mrs. So-and-So?” “It is.” “I am the assistant rector of the Jericho church. “Oh, yes. Won’t you come in?” “Thank you. I saw your name in tho registry and have been trying to find time to call on you ever since I came to the church, but somehow I could not get around in this neighborhood until to-day. But I think I know your children. Your son sings In the choir, does he not?” “Yes.” “And your little girl is in Miss An derson’s Sunday school class, I be lieve?” “Yes.” “How old are the children?” “Willie is fourteen and Mamie Is nine.” "Well, well, anybody would think your children were older than that.” And he doesn’t know to this day why that woman has stopped going to church. —New York HeraJd. Dogs and Automobiles. "A dog that has once come in con tact with an automobile never goes back for a second dose." said a man who lives out In the Old York road. * 1 know, because I haxe six. I mean dogs—not automobiles. See ’em limp ing around? Well, every one has been hit, and now they give the autos a vide berth. You’d think that after one or two had had the experience they’d put the others next, but that’s where the meanness of a dog’s nature comes In. ‘‘They say that every dog has his day, and I suppose they regard experi ence as the best teacher. It’s hard to figure the thing out; but, at any rate, every one of my six dogs has been struck, with more or less serious re sults, and now their curiosity Is satis fied. They are quite content to let the machines whiz by. and save their barks until the danger Is past.”—Phil adelphia Record District Given Over to Lawyers. Chancery Lane, I-ondon, Is occupied almost entirely ty lawyers and the tradesmen who cater to their needs. During the "long vacation" there Is hardly any traffic upon It. THE STATESMAN, DENVER, COLORADO. No Place for a Dragon Fly. A big brown dragon fly floated leisurely into a Sixth avenue depart meet store the other day and zig zagged its way to the lace counter, where it made one of the midair pauses so common to the insect and so startling to the spectator unac quainted with its ways. The pause was made directly In front of a blue-eyed young woman with auburn hair, rampant, a la pom padour, who stood behind the counter. The blue-eyed young woman was so amazed at the fierce-eyed, quiver ing apparition that she was speech less; but when the dragon fly, satis fied with its inspection, made a wild dash toward that rampant head, the owner sent up a shriek which at once communicated itself to the other young woman behind that and adja rent counters, until it woulM have been thought that wholesale murder was being done there. “Sh!” said some on£ at lest who seemed to know something. “It’s only a harmless dragon fly looking fi»r flies!” The blue eyed young womun with •he ambitious pompadour rose to the >ccasion promptly. With ur masked indignation she tossed her flanboyan' head and said; “The very Idea! There idnT nr files on me!”—New York Sun. ForFineTailorlng GOOD FIT And Workmanship GO TO B.
