Tliere is a very Cores rivalry between our two undertakers Tooiiil.j "a:i'l Sin uickson, atnl sotuetiiuea it cau.sj.i trouble. Oa the Jay of t.li Mr. Chew's funonv!, which was con.. acted by Toombs, a eolorou niau named lia mis was to k; buried by kSinnk-ksoti. It to happened that t!e two pvecsiuns rea.h-d the turnj.ike le-ullng to the cemetery at the sam moment, ll.uh hearses were moving at a slovv walk, but as f-wrn as they rt.t abreast of each other S.iuiiii ksim tuiuhed up his luirses and ruaiU them walk raj'ulb . Tlien Toombs put on mure .sjaed tried to drive across the front of iimicksou's horses, iu o:k-r to block them oil" and keep thorn iu the rear. Whereupon Sirsuickstm remaked that if Tootnbs didn't take that old coluti cart out of t!ie way he'd i i) the wheels oil and bai it into splinters. 'Ton kuop behind," sai-.l Toombs. '-I don't 'low no ni-A-er burviu' to take the lead of mo." "There ain't no decent nier in the county that kin nit dead enJu-h to be wiiiin.tr to ii Ij behind fcaeli horses as them of yourn." :;0h ! there hain't, hey?" refikd Toomlis. "We;!, just b;t me tell you tiiat there's more n.oney in the near hind leg cf my l;or.;cs th'uti you've ever made by solliii -yalier j i:ie ci Llnis lor nuhog any." "If my hi.rscs v.-ertu't belter'n your'n Ida kiLed 'cm loii arc and trot you to bury 'cm. It's more iu your Hue than huu.'un b: iiir.s." "We'll see about that," said Toombs, as he stait.'d his team at a bri.k trot. "I'il let ve wilt !"' exclahn-d Inuickson, whippin g his horses furi .us'y. A e on 1 later both hearses were pdni; t!( wn ti e t:tnipi;;o the rate of thirty miles an ho tr, the coxitis bouticiu about in tintn at a furious rate, and the fii'.nds of tie do.ea-ed pat ties loukiui; out of the carriage windows at the race, s..me cheer- !:ir the undertakers, ai.d others feoHng pretty mad about it. 1 he funeral processions, however, pro ceeded to the cemetery, and wheu thev reacted it the- stepped to wait for the undertakers to turn up. It was then about hali-j ast twelve o cluck. A little after four som-. uooy paw a man c-tuutn-e: m the cemetery irate with his nose bloody, his riedit eve sw. Hen and disenbred, and his clothes t.ni and covered with dirt. It v.'as Toombs. He vas balantit' a cofan on the ilont axle-tree of a vehicle ciilv two whecle of which remained, lie limned up to the rave jaishine; the receptacle before him, and sliding the c-nuin oil, he said : 'Gosh ! but I'm tired ! I've run that thiuir alon on those wheels for nearly four miles. ' Then stepping up to Judge Pittman he whi.-pered to him : 'Me aud fiitit.iok.son 've been playiu' particular thunder! 1 beat him in the race, and then be ran into me aud smashed both hearses all into notbiii'. Then we p ar pled and lit for about an hour, and finally I bit him in tne stomach and curl, d him ail up iu the corner of the fence, i'ut when I came to look for old Chew's erfm it was jrone. I must a dropped him out alouir the road somewheros ; I dutino where. So what did I do w hile ianicksou was lay in' there howiiu' but rab up Sinniekson'.H niirer and mount him on my from wheels, aud brin; him alone;. Old Che wis people won't know the dilierence. Less bury this chap and lay low ab"Ut it, and Sinnicksou can shove oil old Chew on the colored folks. Uo'il do almost anything after the way 1 bounced him." So the "funeral services procee.led, and just as they ret the remains in the jrave in came Siunicksoti, lookinir as if he had been passed a couple of times through a bark mill, and pretty nearly ground to ra;rs. The first tiling he said was: "I say hold up there ! You've trot the wro:i;r man. Mr. Chew's laying in the ditch about three rjuartcrs of a mile up the pike, and this is my corpse you're u burviu-." "Don't pay any attention to that liar," said Toombs, turning pale. "Who are, you cal:i:i;r a liar ?" said Sin r.ickson, and then he Sidled into Toombs, and they had another tussle until Judre Pitman separated them. Then a commit tee of friends rot a cart and went baek for Mr. Chew, and finally everything was pro perly arranged. Put as the folks went home Toombs passed Finnicksori at the cemetery atc, and shaking his fist at him, he said. "Never you mind, old fellow. The nest funeral I have 'il be yours, and I'll not only run it, but I'il have the corpse ready ; you see if I don't." There is a rood opening for an amiable undertaker in our vil Lure. An easy method of breaking rlts to any roquired form is by making a small notch, by means of a file, on tho edge of a piece iass ; then make the end of a rod of iron red iiot in the (ire, apply the iron to the notch, aud draw it slow ly along the surface of glass, in rny direction you please; a crack will be made and w ill follow the direc tion of the iron. Round jtlass bottles and flasks may be cut in the middle by wrap ping round them a worsted thread dipped in spirits of turpentine, and setting it on fire when fastened on the trlass. This process is familiar to old campaigners with whom glass bottles are more plentiful than tumblers, and the former are thus utilized ! to supply a wast cf the latter. An Incident of Npw York City Lift A reporter rT the New York Vrorld writ 'ircr of the crowd that m iy be seen daily at the ofr.ee of v upevtutendeut of Out door Poor, vives the lollowsn inei lent : On Tuesday morning there was an un usually lurL'o cnr.vd about the place. It. huddled on the Third avenue side because the wind euiae down Eleventh street full of nu-dli-s. One woman braved the side sfrect be cause shs waitted to be alone. She kept paeinT up and down, as if in kr-ejiin her own blood iti cirenlativui she could keep the biuivlle warm that she carried iu her arms. Doubtless this was her first attempt at the official trough. She was yonnir, :d proba bly thought that she could keep her humili ation to herself she selected the coldest place to wait. So she turned up the collar of tho thin j tcket, set her teeth atid braved it. When anybody came down Eleventh street she turned short about. Now and then she jravo the bundle a shake up in her arms, as a it were heavy. I, at it was a eomivrt not to be notice.! Rut .he wj.s noticed. The reporter i this ease, b.appenod to be of her own sex, and after watching her 1'or a few moments crosse'S the street to speak to her. "Why don't you iro round in t! e avenue? ou'il iVt:eze your baby to death here." She Sii-.l uotiiiu but deftly pulled the covvtitt;-; a.-lde and looked in. There was a rustic i f piper. Sue had !j;ot an inner lavcr of n -w.-p.ipers I'.r the sake of warmth. 2uick as she was. slie was not so ouick that the rcji.rtcr f.i'el to see the pink face tad note the tasty bee and linen "Sti ji a m.jui.'ijt. It's a beauty. Let m : look at ir.
