Disposing him self In a comfortable chair, lie spread out his hands ami in a soft voice, with a decided at-ent. bejran: "Mcester Ryan, you be the next mayor of Eleez. You ennna lw beet." There was a pause, during which the caller observed the ceiling contempla tively, and Mr. Ryan observed him with an indulgent smile. The strange young tuau continued: "The greata poet of England say. 'There is a tide in the life of men if "NO MOKK IT KES THE AGE OK KOMAXCE." yon taka in the flood lead on to elec tion. I tntro!la that flood.

A German paper tells the xfciry of a German officer who. in comma ml of some Boers, managed to surprise a British train at a small wayside sta tion. There was some whisky on board, and the Boers soon sampled it. with the result that tbe good British spirit did its duty by laying them out fast asleep on the platform. Here they were found and captured by some Eng lish troops, who, in their turn, took a little from a half empty cask, with tbe result that, acting on half starved men. the whisky sent them to sleep in their turn. When the Boers woke up. they recaptured their capturers. Thus in a few hours there was one British vic tory and two Boer victories added to the record. GMdirla't Giplaaalloa. Nat Goodwin was lounging in the smoking room of a London hotel with Pat Sheedy recently when Mr. Andrew Lang, the literary critic, stopped to greet the comedian. The conversation turned upon matters literary, and be fore Mr. I-ang departed he had made some allusion to Theodore Watts-Dun-ton. the celebrated pre-Raphaelite. "What's DuutonT queried Sheedy. who was rather mystified. "It's a gag from Weber and Fields," replied Goodwin, sparring for time. "I never heard It How does it go." "Why. Weber says to Fields Watts Dunton? and Field replies, Y"on say it not right. Don't say Watts Duutou. Say it so. Watts-DittenT " Or pew fnaekled. Senator Depew was treading very cautiously on the icg pavement as a stout party sailed around the corner and struck a sliding track. "Gracious!" exclaimed Dr. Depew. who feared that tbe man had broken a leg and was very much relieved to dis cover that he had not. "It is very for tunate that you did not fall with your legs under you." "1 should not have fallen had they been under vA'." retorted the unfor tunate acridly.

Sc she wanted besides a piece of land well watered and fertile that It might be profitably cultivated.
