LEAP YEAR SPUNK.
A Michigan Girl Who Means to Get a
Husband.
I.etrolt Free Press.]
A Detroiter who was out in the country the
other day to look after some poultry, got
stuck in a mud hole, although having a light
buggy and a strong horse. He got out, took
a rail off the fence and was trying to pry the
vehicle out, when along came a strapping
young woman, about twenty-six years of a.e.
She halted, surveyed the situation, and said:
"You stand by the horse while I heave on
the rail, and don't be afraid of getting mud
on your hands and boots."
Their united efforts released the vehicle,
and the Detroiter returned thanks and asked
her to get in and ride. She hesitated, looked
up and down the road, and finally said :
"Stranger, I'm blunt spoken. Who are
you ?"
Hie gave his name and residence, and she
continued :
"I'm over twenty-five, worth $500 in cash,
know all about housework, and this is leap
year."
"Yes, I know, but for heaven's sake don't
ask me to marry you !" he replied as he saw
the drift.
"See here," she continued, looking him
square in the eye, "I'm a straight girl, wear
a No. 7 shoe, and I like the looks of yotu'
"Yes, but don't-don't talk that way to
me!"
"Stranger, It's leap year and I am going to
pop! Will you have me or not ?"
"I-I'm already married !" he faltered.
"Honest Injun ?"
"Yes."
"Well, that settles me and I won't ride. I'll
take a cut across the field over to old Spoon
er's. He's got four sons and a fool nephew,
and I'll begin on the old man and pop the
crowd clear down to the idiot, for I've slum
mixed around this world just as long as I'm
going to! Good-by, sir---no harm done."
A lodel eodern Juror's Deager.
[New Haven Un on.]
Solt was ooolly proposed bysome members
of the Hayden jury to throw Mr. Hotchkise
out of the window? As one juror expressed
himself, "nothing but fear of the law" pre
vented the champions of Mr. Hayden from
throwing the obdurate Mr. Hotchkiss out on
the pavement! Well, well, this is a revela
tion I Is there an honest man not possessed of
great physical strength and moral courage
who will care to serve on a jury in an import
ant case in this county hereafter? Someday
the fear of the law may not deter a lot of
belligerent jurors from pitching an obstinate
one of their number, who cannot agree with
them, out of the window, and viewing with
serenity his mangled corpse on the court pave
ment below.

At a "proprietary club":
"Say. old fellow, come and let's make up a

"Who's going to play?"
"Oh, we'll scare up a set-Rotibal'll take a

"Then you may count me out."
