I don't see but one reason why that mare can't trot her mile in three minutcB rthe distance is too great for the time. t&" A man fit a fair was asked it hia horse was timid. " Not at all," said he ; " he frequently spends the whole night by himself in a stable." i A gentleman passing through a potato-field observed an Irishman planting potatoes. He inquired what kind he had there. " Raw ones, to be sure," replied the son of Erin ; " Tf they were boiled they wouldn't grow." 4 To make a little boy's trowsers " last." When you make a suit of clothes for him, finish the coat first, and by so doing you make the trowsers last. It is the only way the thing can be done. Here's a man fallen into this slouch !" exclaimed one laborer to another; " hurry, for it is up to his ankles." " If that's all. there's no hurry." " Yes, thcTe is, for he's fallen in head first !" 4In a Sabbath school in Grand Haven, Mich., Miss Elder, the teacher, asked Rurty Parks: " Who was the father of Zebedee's children ?" Burty scratched her head for a moment, and then asked, " Who did Zebedee suspect '(". Jt A man was once brought up be fore a magistrate, charged w'.th marrying six wives. The magistrate asked him how he could bo so hardened a villain. " riease your Worship," re plied the fel low " 1 wax trying to yrt a ijood urn; 1" ' J8T" A little girl happened to hear her mother speaking of going into halt' mourn ing, said : " Why are wo going into half mourn ing, mamma; are any of our relations half dead r 8"" What is the difference between GO minutes and my youngest sister?" asked a precocious buy of his grave uncle. " 1 don't know ) what is it V was the un cle's reply. " Why, one's an hour, and the other's our Ann," was the stunning explanation. J6 There is an improbable story that a New-Jersey hen minluid an egg, when another hen set on it, and the original hen recognized the chicken after it was hatched. The sitting hen claimed a " fowl," but the umpire has not given his decision. IhaT" A young lawyer of Philadelphia wrote to an old limb near Chicago thus: " Is there an opening in your part of the country that I can get into?" Answer: " There is an opening in my back yard, about thirty feet deep, no curb around it. If that will suit, come on." JF" " Do you mean to tell us," said a lawyer to a doctor, whom he was cross examining, " that if a person lived in a horse pond, it would not be injurious to him?" " I think not," said the doctor, " if ho lived for sixty or seventy years in it." Smith looking over the garden fence of his fr iend Jones bite on Saturday afternoon, saw Jones in the act of dig ging angle worms. " Jones," said ho, " I hope you are not going to break the Sabbath ?" ' No," replied Jones, as he drew out a fat fellow, " I expect to make a whole day of it." J A gentleman, observing a servant girl, who was left-handed, placing the knives and forks on the dinner table in the same awkward position, remarked to her that she was laying them left handed. " Oh, indade !" said she j "so I have. Be pleased, sir, to help me to turn the table round" ! JJQy " My lad," said a traveler to a little boy whom he met, clothed in pants and small jacket, but without a very necessary article of apparel, " my lad, where is your shirt?" " Mammy's wash ing it." Ilavo you no other ?" " No other !" exclaimed the urchin, ia surprise, " would you want a boy to have a thous and shirts?" t& A rogue lately gave a waiter at a well known cafe in Brussels a ten frano piece. The waiter very correctly pro nounced it bad. "Let me see it again," said the fellow; then examining it careful ly, he exclaimed in a loud voice, as h put it back, "Observe the date, 1813; do you really suppose that if it was bad they wouldn't have found it out by thia time?"
