The actors in Miss Fortescue's company are telling a rather amusing story about that lady's sister, who is traveling with the or ganization. When they were playing re cently in Buffalo the younger Miss Fortescue came on W ednesday morning to see the man ager, and expressed a desire to run down that afternoon, with her mother, and visit Niagara falls. The manager was afraid some unforeseen delay might occur to pre vent the lady's return in time for the eve ning's performance, and he said: "It would be quite useless for you to go to day. The falls are not visible on Wednes day." "Indeed? And why notf "They always turn the water off on Wednesdays." "How extraordinary." responded Miss Fortescue, and went away quite satisfied witfc the explanation. 'Boston Herald. Circumstances Alter Cases. Omaha Boy Say, Sis, you know Mr. Nice fellow begged your pardon for stepphV or your dress an' tearuv a big hole in it? Omaha Miss Well, what of it? "An' you said it didn't matter a bit, an' you was glad of it?" "Yes." "'Cause you like to sew, an you didn't know what to do with yourself if you hadn't anything to mend?" "Well, what of it, I say?" "It wasn't Mr. Nicefellow that stepped on your dress. It was me." "Oh 1 you horrid, awkward, little wretch. Til skin you alive." Omaha World. A Joke oh the Sub Editor. During the Franco-German war a yritty contributor to a provincial newspaper fre quently had occasion to complain of the in tense stupidity of the sub editor, and he at length resolved to serve him out. One even ing after office hours, when he knew the sub editor would be alone, with no at one hand to correct his blunders, he telegraphed to him: "The Prussians have taken umbrage." The sub editor, glad of any news, late as it was, issued large posters with the inscription: "Capture of Umbrage by the Prussians." It served bh a lesson for him in the future. Philadelphia Call Inquisitive Touth. "Say, pa," asked the pride of the house hold after a moment's reflection, during which he had inadvertently declined a second help to buckwheat cakes, "if a man does what he ought to do he does his duty, don't he?" "Ves, he does, my son." "Well, suppose he don't do what he ought to do, does he do his donty?" Up to the hour of going to press the pa rental answer had not been given. Harper's Bazar. The Next Best Thing. "Was this lettuce grown here?" she asked as she lifted up a fine head at a Central market stall. "No, ma'am." "Then I guess I don't want it." "Just so, ma'am. While I say that it wasn't grown here, as an honest man should say, 1 can assure you that I've had it here long enough to warrant that it is thoroughly acclimated." Detroit Free Press. Showing Solicitude. Father (to family physician) Isn't George Sampson a relative of yours, doctor? Family Physician Yes, he is a nephew. Father He wants my daughter Clara, but I gave him to understand that she wouldn't get any of my money until after my death. Family Physician That was right. George . was asking after your health to-day. Har per's Bazar. Confusion of Ideas. Omaha Man Seems to me your face looks familiar. Ain't you the dentist who pulled a tooth for me in Blank City? Stranger I used to live in Blank City, but I am not a dentist. I was a justice of the peace for some years there. "Oh I now I know. You are the man that married me." Omaha World.
