I managed to get it from him, and. now he's scared stiff for f.ear you'll see ?." was the laughing reply. "Scared stiff, is he?" said Mr. Stew art, with a twinkle In his eye. "Just send him to me, will you?' A little later a slim youth entered Mr. Stewart's private office and said he understood he had be??n sent for. "Yes." said Mr. S'ewart, gravely, and holding up the sketch asked, "Did you do this?" The lad grew pale, and stammered. "I?I beg your pardon, sir; It was only a bit of fun. I meant no of? fense." "That's all very well, but you'll have to give up your job here The youth humbly protested, when Mr Stewart burst out laughing, ?and said: "Don't say sny more, my boy. I'm onl? Joking.

An old parrot which had been In the family of the lai* Senator Quay, of Pennsylvania, at his Beaver horn a has Just been sold for a curious rea? son. Before Lewis Davidson, of Beaver, wooed and won Miss Mao Quay, a daughter of the senator, her sisters bad taught the bird to say "Good-by. Lou." followed by smack sounds like kissing. The bird wa.- a good talker, and as Miss Quay would sing out "Good-by. Lou." as her Jover was le?ving night.--, the parrot would mimic her. This was all right, even if the neighbors Aid bear It, for a time, but a year or more after the marriage of Miss Quay and Mr. Davidson they separated. After that the parrot con? stantly harped on "Good by. Lou! Smack, smack." The neighbors heard It, of course, and for a dime the street in front of the Quay home became quite a boule? vard, all because pf the curious 'per? sons who wished to hear the parrot. Finally the bird became so hateful to Mrs. Davidson that she wanted to sell it The other membeiw of the family objected, as the bird had been a fav? orite of the senator. Finally.
