A small boy whose father was nurchaslnr; a fowl at tho nest stand had accidentally upset the farmer's eggs. They wbro scrambled all over ttib ground. Tho farmer looked nt the eggs and then at the boy and his' hither. "Vou'il have to pay for them," he told the latter.

Then I saw the cause of their amuse ment was tho way a girl was dresse'd. OriS of hor stockings wan black, the other brown. Tho girl herself was aware of tho laughter and realised they wero laughing at her, but aho evidently couldn't determine the causo. Suddenly she looked down and saw and imme diately ran out of tho station. William BOrdcIet. No. 15 Oardeld Street, Ton kens, N. Y. LET'S IHU'E SO.

It is Impossible, because of the coal shortage, for the Stapleton Coal Com pany, for which I work, to make deliv eries to alt thoso who ire badly In need of fuel. The result Is that many people como to the yard, buy a few bags of coal and carry It away In express wag ons, pushcarts and autos. But the queerest sight I ever saw was when an undertaker alighted from a white hearse that stopped at the yard, bought some bags of coal, placed them In the hearse and drove solemnly away. Floyd S.
