The Drummer's Latest Trick.
The ritumiaer alwajs brings the latest
t:u k. Hero it i*.
Take a spool cf white bast log cotton.
Drop it into your inside coal pocket and,
threading a Deedle with it, pass it up
through the shoulder of your coat. Leave
the end an inch or so long on the outside o/
your coat and take ctf the needle. Four
men out of five will try to pick that whole
thread off your shoulder, and will pull oo
the spool until it actually does eeeui as
though your clothes are all bastings, and that
they were unravelling not only your clothes,
"I was in to Bee Wilson Barrett in Clan*
dian iu Bo-ton last week," Baid the travel?
ing man. "It wan in >he most interesting
and pathetic portion of the play. Everybody
was rapt. I was Bitting bolt upright, and
didn't koow or care to know a soul around
mo. when suddenh I felt hodoo one tugging
at that basting cotton thut I myself bad
cleao forgotten. I didn't cay a word and
dido't move. Foot by foot it uuroled. Half
glancing uround, I saw a man?a total
stranger?yaokiog at that thread. His face
was scarlet. He had pulled out about ten
yards and was now hauling in band over
hand. He didn't dare to stop because be
bad decorated my back and the whole aisle
with bastirg cotton. He hardly dared to
go ahead, for he didn't know what portion of
my domesticinterior economy he was trilling
with. Rip! rip! went the thread. Handover
hand be yanked it in. The aisle was fall
of it. 'For heaven's sake! will it never end?'
naid he above his brtalh. I eat perfectly
?tili and ran the spool while be pulled. How
I wanted to yell. I never saw anything In
my life half bo funny. The whole section
of the house got onto it. They didn't know
whether to laugh at me or him, and some
looked on amazed at the spectacle. At last
the Btanger behind me gave one frantic rip
aud yanked out about eleven yards on one
bunch, and as the cotton got twisted around
bis watch chain, over bia eye-glasses, in bis
very bair and filled bis lap, I turned around
and producing the spool from my pocket
paid : 'lam very much obliged for your in?
terest and very sorry that I misled you. You
see I have about one hundred and twenty
four yarde left, but I presume thai you don't
care for any more to-night. I am honestly
sorry, but I can't help smiling.'
"Tne man was a modest fort of gentleman
in appearance. His face wa< red ae fire
even to hie ears. He looked at me and then
at the epool. He changed color once or
twice, and then us the crowd caught oo a
big laugh went up right in one of the painful
passages of Claudian, and ihe gentleman
who bad intended to pull that thread off
joined in the laugh and said, 'I will square
that off on my wife when I get borne ; but,
my friend, I swear to heaven that I did
think at one time that I was going to an
dre?s you where you sat.'
"It catches every time, and my own wife
baa been fooled twice on it."
