A Biack Art Experience.
Uncle Bentley was the most officious
man In Hawleyburg. If you left your
front gate ajar so that the dog could
come In, Uncle Bentley was sure to
come doddering along and latch it. If
you went down town with your old
umbrella?the one the unknown scoundrel
left who took yours?and were
carrying It under your arm and hoping
It wouldn't rain, Uncle Bently was
certain to come up with his "He, he,
my boy; new umbrell', hey?" and take
It away from you and open It, and display
its holes In the sight of all. When
the president passed through town, and
stepped out on the station platform to
shake hands witn tne leading citizens.
Uncle Bentley was In the forefront,
- grinning like a Chinaman, and got hold
of the executive's hand and pumped
it up and down, and inquired after his
folks, and told him about the crops, till
the train started. There were some
rather unchristion things said about
Uncle Bentley-on this occasion, but he
was around the next day more chipper
than ever, getting in the way, and doing
that which he should have left undone.
One day Ponsonl, the celebrated prestidigitator,
came to town, in fulfillment
of the promises of both large and small
bills, to give a grand exhibition of oonjuring
and revelation of the black art.
The performance was in the "opera
house." Everybody went, but the earliest
comers found Uncle Bentley occupying
a front seat. It was generally
thought that he had stayed after the
appearance of some home talent the
night before, and was locked In all day,
subsisting on bottled cold coffee and
pocketed sandwiches. The curtain didn't
go up on time, and at the end of
twenty minutes of waiting, Slgnor Ponsoni
came out in great agitation. His
assistant had been taken suddenly 111
Would some one kindly volunteer to?
Uncle Bentley shot up like a man coming
out of a volcano. They disappeared
together.
In Ave minutes they came on the
stage. Uncle Bentley was looking very
queer. He had on a funny pink satin
coat and high yellow silk hat. and his
features seemed strange and unnatural,
as if he was trying to suppress
some mighty secret. The signor seated
him in a chair facing the audience,
and then advanced and said:
"Ladles and gentlemens?Wiz your
kind pier-mission, and ze assistanz of
Meester Bunkley, I vill now perform
my celebrated egg treeck, to be follow
ed by xe rabbeet treeck, xe?" He had
been looking out Into the wings nervously,
and broke off with, "Pardong
one minute," and vanished, leaving Uncle
Bentley sitting like an Egyptian
Image struggling with that within.
One minute, two minutes elapsed,
but the signor did not come back. Uncle
Bentley remained fixed, rigid, gazing
straight ahead with round, glassy
eyes. Five minutes passed. Uncle Bentley
frozen in position, goggling straight
ahead. Ten minutes?no disciple of
the blackart; Uncle Bentley still tableauing
as the Everlasting Hills. The
audience began to get impatient "Nevmlnd
the Eyetalian?go ahead, uncle,"
shouted somebody. "Give your part of
the celebrated egg treeck," called another.
"Wade in, old man!" shouted a
third.
At this Instant the skirt of Uncle
Bentley's queer coat was observed to
be In a state of agitation, and a white
rabbit jumped out and went hopping
across the stage. Uncle Bentley was
seen to revolve one eyeball the merest
trifle as he watched the rabbit. The
little creature stopped, and a cat which
had been lurking in the wings darted
Tor it This was too much for Uncle
Bentley; he Jumped up and went for
the cat. He got her by the tail as she
was actually in the air descending on
the rabbit. She turned with a startling
yowl and struck at his hand. He sat
back solidly on the floor. There was
a strange scrunching sound. Rabbits
began to boll up out of the old gentleman
everywhere. The cat Jumped
over the footlight, lit on the snaredrum
and went up the center aisle,
waving a tall like the broom of a
street-sweeping machine. There seemed
to be no end of those rabbits; they
came out of every pocket, and he appeared
to be mostly pockets. Then a
white dove struggled up from the back
of his neck and knocked off his high
hat. and five or six bushels of red paper
flowers foamed out of it, and buried
Uncle Bentley, leaving only his
head visible. On this the dove Anally
roosted, while the rabbits sat around
with their ears high, half scared to
death over the cat. Still Uncle Bentley
spoke not a word. But now his lips
were seen to be open, and a glimpse of
white was detected. "He's got an egg
In his mouth!" cried somebody. "Go
ahead?ze ee treeck!" veiled another.
"Urn, yum." said Uncle Bentley, prying
at the egg with his fingers gingerly.
"Take It out!" "Swallow it!" "Palm
It!" "Change It Into a silver dollar!"
was some of the advice of friends in
the audience. Uncle Bentley worked
at It cautiously, only remarking. "Um,
yum." Suddenly his jaw closed fiercely,
regardless of everything, and he
leaped up with a smothered groan,
throwing flowers and rabbits like
spray, tore open his bright satin vest
and hauled out a driDDinsr fiat elass
vessel, while a displaced rubber cover
and a dozen gold fish slid to the floor.
The audience shouted, and several
friends rushed on the stage. One kindhearted
woman remembered the rabbit
which Uncle Bentley had seemingly
sat down upon In his coat-tail pocket.
It proved to have been two dozen eggs,
however.
A moment later the signor returned.
It had been the sheriff attaching the
box-office receipts ^t the Instance of
his unpaid assistant, "suddenly-ill,"
which had taken him away.?Harper's 1
Magazine. 1
Trimhed the Doctor.?A North 1
Carolina doctor, inclined to be mind- 1
ful of other people's business, was rid- 1
Ing along a country road. He drew '
up where a native was husking corn '
in a field. 1
"You are gathering yellow corn?" 1
said the doctor.
"Yes, sir; planted that kind," came 1
the reply. 1
"Won't get more than half a crop?" <
volunteered the physician. '
"Don't expect to, sir; planted it on '
half shares." 1
i ne doctor was somewnai neiueu ai this
and replied: *
"You must be mighty near a fool." ?
"Yes. sir, only a fence between us." <

"Yes, but he proved to be twice as

The El,hv,en Lost Days.?The eleven (
days from September 3 to 13 Inclusive
are memorable for having once been
entirely omitted from the calendar of I
the Anglo-Saxon world. The Gregorian |
calendar was not udonted hv the Rrlt
Ish empire until 1751, long after most
^ther nations of the civilized world
had conformed with it. In that year
in act of parliament prescribed that
in the next year, 1752, should begin on
January 1, instead of on March 25, as
had previously been the rule, and that
n the following September these elev?n
days should be dropped from the
calendar, the day following September
> being known as September 15. Stirling
times those were too, in which
lays were not'llghtly to be spared from
i year, with Cllve conquering India
ind Washington beginning the conjuest
of the Ohio valley. But the pre;ession
of the equinoxes took no note
>f trifles iike these, which could be
iccompiished as well under one calenlarlal
style as another. It may be obterved
that, while Gregory dropped
>nly ten days from 1582, eleven days
lad to go from 1752, and Russia would
lave to drop thirteen from 1906 to
iquare her dates with the rest of the
vorld.?New York Tribune.

"THE BEST
ON EARTH"
Broad assertion, you say.
Well, we can CONVINCE YOU
without a doubt. We have just received
a CARLOAD OF OLIVER
CHILLED PLOWS, and we claim that
they are the BEST ON EARTH. They
are sold all over Europe, Asia, Africa,
North and South America, and In fact
wherever land Is tilled. Now, as to
their superiority over all other plows.
That Is admitted by all. When you
hear this fellow, that fellow and the
other fellow say anything about the
plow he is trying to sell, he will Invariably
say, "It is as good as the
Oliver." But no better, thus admitting
that the Oliver is the BEST. So,
when you buy a plow you will make
no mistake If you buy an OLIVER.
The Oliver is guaranteed against
any flaws. Any part of an Oliver
that breaks as the result of sandholes
or other defects, Is replaced FREE

PAINT YOUR HOUSE with DEVOE

said by dealers selling other Paints
it finally comes back to the point
where you will be ready to admit the
truth of the claim that DEVOE Paint
is the BE3T to buy and the BE8T to
use. It has times without number
proven itself to be the paint that goee
further and lasts longer than all other
paints. If it goes further gallon for
gallon than other paints?and it does
?and lasts longer?and it does?Isn't
that evidence enough to convince you
that DEVOE is the paint for you to
use when you paint your buildings.
DEVOE paint Is sold all over the
United States and the same story Is
told" everywhere. It goes further?it
lasts longer.
It Is not as good as some paints for
