Hundred dollars.

"But you don't mean to tell roe that

"How do sure-thing gamblers lose
their money? Why, by betttng on
some other bigger sure-thing gam
blers' gamps," replied Mr. Dlnkston.
"All the fako fortune tellers and
they are all fakirs from shut-eyes or
clairvoyants to 'mitt readers' or
palmists are credulous and super
stitious. They all wear lucky charms
and believe In omens, and the one
sure thing they know Is bad luck la
when a Junk cart with cow bells
' Jangling on It stands or passes In
, front of their 'stores.' "

Ignorant fakirs pull the wool over my

In a plea In New York for
the Irish cause. "The Irish can't
stand meanness.
"No, no, the Irish cant stand mean
ness. Tuke O'Orady's case. You
know, In Ireland, some sixty or sev
enty years ago, when a poor family
lacked a colli n they made the corpue
beg for it. ...
"This custom, alas! sometimes led
to imposture. Thus Thirsty O'Grady
and his friends wanted money badly
once and O'Qrady was assigned to
act the corpse. So they laid him
on a blcr outside thu door and they
put a pewter plate beside him for the
pennies.
"As O'Qrady lay there, so still, with
closed eyes, an old woman stopped
nnd dropped sixpence Into the plate.
Then she began to take out change.
A penny, tuppence, threepence, she
took out and O'Orady oouldn't stand
such meanness. Corpse as he was, he

IN Ihe good old days, when no child
dared reply to a question from an
elder without the "Blr" or
"Ma'am," a gentleman, now past mid-
die as. recalls an awesome scene
at his father's table.
A stubborn little sister, having been
denied a second helping of her fa
vorite ile.t.iert, whs asked If she
wished some brewd and butter In
stead, to which she defiantly an
swered, "No,"
"No, cat'.' or no, ilng?" asked the
father with ominous culm,
"No, dog," wriK tlio reckless answer
that set the tabla In silent convul
sions. National Monthly. .

And ho had observed that the rule

ll'icontly little Hollo was sent out to
visit his grandma In the country. ,
Anl after a day or two he missed
something.
"Grandma," said he, "ain't It eres

"What a quoHtlunl" she laughed.
Of course It Is, To-day Is Friday,

The Minister Was Puzzled.
A1
T a marriage service performed
some time ago In a little coun
try church in Georgia, when the
minister said In a solemn tone: "Wilt
thou have this man to be thy wedded
husband?" instead of the woman an
swering for herself, a gruS mas'
voloe answered I
"I will."
The minister looked up very tntMTa
perplexed and paused. He repeated
the sentence, and again the same gruff
voice answered, "I will."
Again tho minister looked up sur
prised, not knowing what to make of
It, when one of the groomsmen at the
end of the row said:
"Bhe is deaf. I am answering for
her." Llpplncott's Hagaalne.
