WItnl is 'TiickiuE?'?
From the Itcno, Ncv., Gazett. j A IjoIhcri-J-looking citizen came in- i jio the fiapctlc olEce yesterday nfler ,noyn ;nd rcppcctlully nsked to be let jlopk at the dictionary. He sat dowo .and nitlicr anxiously Ihiimbed Webster jawlille. 'What wprd arc yon .looking for?" jisfced a reporter, seeing that tie jBiranuer had failed to strike the trail. Vell,'J' said the man jn a buret of .confidence, "yon 6cc I've only been carried a sllort tiini, and my wile's .gone up -to Trnckee on a visit, and jghe'H written to me to look in the hot ttom of her trunk or a lot ol 'tucking, .and ccd it to her. Now, what I want ,to know Is what in -blazes if .'tucking?' jUnlntiu the dictionary." "Tucking?1' said the reporter brisk er, ."why. tucking is the stuff that girls make -by -poking afort of -abort-turned jflsh-liook throagh a hole and catching -the .thread and drawing it back Again." Then, the. editor ppoke up contempt uously, and said that a man who wast so ignorant as that ought to hold hie jtongueyhat the reporter had describ ,ed was crotcheting. Everybody onght Jo (iow what tucking was.Tho ladies .making it used a little contrivance .shaped like a mussel, with thread .wonpd up inside of .it. Tucking could .-be purchased, 4ie believed, lor tm or (fifteen cent a yard, and why Intelli gent girls should waste a whole day in .making what-they could get fur a short iblt vwas more than he conld under. .Stand. In answer to a question lrom .ihe.admjrjng .reporter, the editor said iho had been told that tucking was .used in trimming the prderj'arnieiits ,of,the fair sex. but why things should pa ornamented which a fellow would get licked for trying lo Jook ".at or perhaps shptrr-was beyond his comprc Jianslqn. The .married stranger said the editor ,was .mistaken ; that .article h,einrn .t.iqnpd was .not .tucking ; it was tatting; ..thisJje ne.w or a fact. The editor observed that when n man pame to the' Gazette office for iniorniu-Hqn.-the editor, when he gave It, didn't like.to be told he lied. Jf the stranger .wanted to avo'uj .trouble ho had better .get qu.ta.nd so to the devil. As the .editor had grqw,a fed i.nlheface and jbis eyejs were blazing, the married stranger conned (ceiy and slunk ,down stairs. Jntbe meantime, what Is "tucking?' te-Openiug a Thoroughfare. In order to guard ngsinst results utterly subversive of health, it is u-s-lutely essential that the grant thor oughfare or avenue of .the system, the bowlcs should be re-oponcdas speed ily ne possible when they become ob e rutted.
