Among the interior decorations or a restaurant not many squares from city hall are a nn ruber of artificial palms. The, palms are as natural in appearance as if they had been-grown instead of manufactured and . probably . aot one person ,in a doeen .among- tbe restan rant's patrqngisaware of their artificial character. An afternoon or two ago an elderly couple,, evidently from the rural dis tricts, came into tbe restaurant and took a seat. They gave their order and then began to look aronnd. . 'That's a handsome palm, Henry I exclaimed the woman, pointing to the largest specimen. "I wonder if it grew that big in here?" . 'Of course it didn t, replied the man, witn a iook oi superior wiuuum. "It was raised down in Floridy. That s where they all grow, and then they are shipped up here," Just then one or the restanrant s at taches approached the palm with a dampcloth in his hand. Taking hold of one of the leaves he yanked it irom the stem and began to rnb it vigorously with tbe cloth. When he had cleaned the leaf to his satisfaction, be replaced it and pulled another. By this time "Henry's" face was a study, as was also that of his companion. 'I guess that plant didn t grow in Floridy, after all," the woman man aged to whisper. "What do yon guess, Henry V And "Henry" allowed that he guessed the same thing. Philadelphia Inquirer. Joke on the Major. The major, just returned from Bos' ton, tells in strict confidence this story: 'I had engaged my berth and was standing on the rear platform five min utes before the train prilled ont of the Park square depot, when a middle aged woman and a handsome girl, both la dies, passed me, and entered the car, accompanied by a gentlemanly looking chap who carried their baggage. A mo ment later this fellow rushed np to me and. said he was in a most embarrassing position, had his sister and mother aboard and had lost his mileage book, He would introduce me to them ' and glvQjue any security for $25. I said 1 needed neither introduction nor eecur ity. but would give bim $10 all 1 had to spare. Be insisted on giving me ms diamond scarfpin, and then rushed into the station to see if he could get more cash. . As the train pulled out without him he came running wildly after it, but had to give'it np. .'Then . the porter approached me tentatively. 'Was that man annoying yon V he said. I told him no. 'He in sisted on carrying the baggage of two ladies inside, sah, an an did he get any money out of you V " 'Of course be didn r, said 1, but J took the first opportunity of examining that nin. It .was worth about five cents. " Buffalo News. ! Hla Haadr Valla. An old friend of the late ex-Governor Oglesby telh a reminiscence of a valise. Ho was traveling through the state and met the governor on the train. When they were seated, the governor drew out a valise that had a peculiar and handy way of being opened from the top. It was made of strong leather and bad tegs pasted all over it. "1 carried this valise through the Holy Land," said the governor. "I think a great deal of it. " "I suppose it brings np some pleas ant memories," suggested tbe other traveler. "More than that," was the reply, ana the keen eyes ol tbe governor twinkled as he reached down and touched a button and the valise opened Immediately, but cautiously, at the top. It opened wide enough to admit a hand and to permit it to withdraw with a black bottle in its clutch. "This is a great valise. I can get a bottle ont of it, and nobody ever sees me. When the residence of ex-Governor Oglesby burned, all of his private pa pers of every sort and all of his war trophies were destroyed. A short time after be met this same peripatetic friend. "It was a great loss yon sustained, governor, " be said. "Yes, all my papers are gone. Sorry to lose them, too, and then my swords are gone too. I was sorry to lose them, and I knOw you'll be grieved to hear it that valise was burned np. Yes, it's gone. Bob Iogersoll gave me that valise, and I did hate to lose it, it was so handy." Chicago Tribune. Clever Enough to Vote. A keen witted fellow, despite his general ignorance, was brought down to the courthouse to receive tbe rights of citizenship. Name the capital of the nation, said tbe judge. The applicant scratched bis bead. "I can't , just place it, judge," he said, "but yon name over a few of tbe towns and I'll tell you when yon strike it." "Is it Chicago?" queried the judge. "No." "Is it St. Louis?" "TSfn." "Is it Arizona ?" "No." "Is it Washington?" The candidate looked puzzled. He hesitated. "Say, judge," he slowly replied, "if tbet ain't the place it's a close ehotl" He got his papers. Another candidate was brought in by a well known local politician. 'Let me see what you know about geography," said the judge. "Suppos ing yon and Mr. Blank walked straight down to tbe lake and started across it, going due- north, where would yon land?" "On tbe bottom," said the candidate promptly. He got bis papers too. Cleveland Plain Dealer. Body of Ovila Blondin Found. The body of Ovila Blondin was found about 6 p. m. Wednesday under peculiar circumstances. S. D.McLeod and Thomas O'Brien, who had baen working on the log pile ot the International Paper company in North Walpole, had . finished the, day's work and were crossing the river headed for the Vermont ride. There was a strong south wind which carried an odor and on looking about they saw a body floating near one of the piers. They towed it to the Vermont bank and notified the authori ties. Although decayed past recognition all parties suspected it was the body of the long lost Blondin, and the members ot the family confirmed this suspicion as soon as they had examined the clothing. . It was during the forenoon of last Octo ber 28 when Blondin suddenly left the shop of Derby & Ball where he was em ployed aa a varnisher and was last seen running up Rockingham street and in tbe direction oi the river. There is now no doubt that he was insane and that he com mitted suicide by drowning. The wonder is how the body remained out ot sight and probably nnder water all these months It is supposed that the body became partly covered with dirt and gravel and in that way waa held to the bottom -ol the river. It is also thought that the severe thunder shower ot Wednesday raised it to the sur face. At any rate there was a large quan tity oi dirt about the clothing indicating that the body had been floating only a short time.

The solitary prospective chicken was wrapped up. "Two cents, please, saia imerson She paid and received a small slip of yellow .paper. "What was that slip yon gave lien asked the drummer, after she left. "H'm, yon see, eggs are 18 cents dozen. That makes 1 cents for each egg. The woman would not pay a half cent too much, and, as I did not want tosell the egg for .1 cent, she paid 2 cents and I gave her the slip good for one-half cent. Thus she will get the next eeg for 1 cent if she brings tbe Jip."

They run with half the power, half the speed and half the wear, require but half the care and last twice aa long as other separators. Under harder conditions their work is doubly efficient, and under all conditions they save twice as much as other separators over setting systems. Their sales are ten times those of all other ma chines combined. Their price is no greater but on the contrary less than cheaply made imitating machines in proportion to actual capacity, regardless of overwhelming superi ority in every feature of separator efficiency.

In tbe Dutch - army a man mnst be able to swim as well as to fight. More over, if he is in the cavalry he mnst have a horse which will take a river as easily as a bunter takes a fence. Swimming maneuvers are part or the regular drill there. Collapsible canvas boats, manned by a few oarsmen, lead the horses, so that they do not attempt to land on stone quays and other diffi cult points. Tbe men swim across with their horses and on them. They do it in swimming costume and in all the ac couterments of war. There are few nautical emergencies for which the Dutch army is not pre pared. Some of the officers have even reached a degree of proficiency that not only their horses and kit cross the river with them, but their pet dogs sit upon their shoulders and are borne over al most without getting wet Stray Stories. - Trying It on a Dot;.
