An Eskimo was sighing before his igloo door: the snow around ' flving, which made him rather sore. The ice was in his galways, the snow was in his ears, and evermore and always the climate froze his tears. "Dog gone this beastly blizzard," the Eskimo remarked, "it chills a fel low's gizzard and keeps his larynx barked. Ah. would that I were living in those United States, where nature's always giving her sunshine to the skates! I've heard it said the weather is often there so hot that people get together and cuss?delightful thought! They have a summer season when blizzards do not blow, and no one thinks of freezin' or dying in the snow! Oh, it must be delightful to live in such a clime away from ever}' frightful old elemental crime. But Dr. Cook informed me that folks don't like the heat (the informa tion warmed me with anger, I re peat) ; they don't appreciate it, the climate they have there; in fact, some people hate it, and rant around and swear." His medi tations soured him?he might have saved his breath; a poiar bear devoured him, and then it froze to death. WALT MASON. INSURANCE HEN ORGANIZE.

Albert wears a laurel wreath with deprecatinK grace, as all true heroes should. \s Hercules set out to clean out the augt-an stables, so Albert went at his task in the city hall and the rats, which have be*-n romping over the government premises have at last found an antag onist who neither fears nor respects them Thev had things their own way for so long, and had developed such a disdain for traps and poison, that the women in the building- were kept in a state of panic by their intrusions.

The first victim is reputed to have been the monarch of all rats. Albert, with the applause which Is his Just due still ring ing in his ears, is ready to renew the attack again today.
