The county jail at Nash ville is a reminder of early days, and is only a log structure. Brown County is a great county for fruit. Odc of the largest fruit farms in Indiana is that of Freeman & Ten Kick, on which thousands of bushels of fruit are grown every year and hauled to railway stations and shipped to Eastern markets. The county also lias some mineral resources, gold espe cially being found in the streams among tlie hills. Many of its inhabi tants have their gold-wishing outfits. Expulsive.

In fact, he rather prides himself upon his laziness. "Ueally," lie said one day, "It is too much trouble to live. Naturally the assertion surprised a large number of people. They admitted that it was occasionally difficult for a man to live the way lie would like to live, but there were few indeed who objected to tile trouble of living at all. Still, the aim is to please. "Why don't you die?" they asked . "Too much trouble," replied the lazy man. "Why, you can lie down most any where and die." they said. "That's where you're wrong." return ed the lazy man. "If 1 lie down here in the street the chances are that some body will catch me by the collar and yank me to my feet, and then a police man will come along and run me in. Think of the amount of trouble that would be!" "You might stop eating," they sug gested. "Trouble! More trouble!" he replied. "Somebody would And it out and I d have no peace at all. It's easier to eat than it is to go without." "Shoot yourself," they persisted. "Too much trouble to go after a re volver. and then I'd have to be dodging around to find a chance to do the job without having somebody yank the pistol away from me." "At any rate." they asserted, "you can throw yourself from the top of some building." "Too much trouble to climb up to it," he answered. "No gentlemen, there is no hope for me. If I could stand here and fall up into space I might try. but until that can be done I'll have to keep on living. It's hard, very hard. How ever. if any of you happen to have a cigar and a match and will stick the cigar in my mouth and light it for me. you may go on about your business with the consciousness of having done a graceful and praiseworthy act that will have a tendency to reconcile the laziest man on earth to his surround ings for a few minutes longer." A fcv down the lug. of it WHEELED HIMSELF IN BARROW. It was after a bitter argument over the Senatorial contest recently waged in New Jersey. "I'll tell you what I'll do if that Dryden Is elected," said William Campbell, of Camden, to the man with whom he had been having the argument. "I won't wheel you around in a wheelbarrow, but I will wheel myself." There was a general laugh at Campbell's expense, but he promised to make good, despite their derision. The day after Dryden was nominated Campbell's friend had to leave town on a business trip. When lie returned Campbell met him at the station. "Well, I've paid my bet," Campbell told him, and handed him a photograph to prove the truth of his statement. All except expert photog raphers may have tlieir doubts, but Campbell's friend was satisfied. i ! Why He Kept a Dug. A prominent dog fancier and wealthy I man of Philadelphia stepped into a gro ! eery the other night and accidentally stumbled over a fat old German, who j was sitting in a corner smoking his i pipe. Under his chair was the most remark able specimen of a dog that the gentle man had ever seen. It had the appear ance of a pug, with rough red hair and a long tail, it was impossible to resist laughing at the placid old man and his nondescript dog. "What kind of a dog is that?" asked tlie gentleman. "1 don't know," replied the German. "I suppose you use him for hunting?" "No." "Is he good for anything?" "No." "Then why do you value him so?" "Because he likes me," said the old fellow, still puffing at his pipe, and the expression of the dog as he looked up from under the chair fully confirmed tlie statement. "There is no better or stronger reason than that," asserted tlie gentleman em phatically as he walked away.—Phila delphia Tress. Jewelers' Dummy Clocks.
