"He is, eh f said the old man, in a fine burst of scorn. "What do you want with a pro fessor of that for? Bible says there ain't go in' to be no more floods. What do you want irrith arks?" "I am in favor of teaching trades in the public schools," said Taxpayer. "Me, too," 1 assented Constant Reader; "I want carpen tering or wood working of some sort taught. My boy's got a head that isn't good for any thing else." "I say, Shaughnessy, phwat is it all this is they do be talkin' about the fait' cure?" "Uz V- id the faith cure, thin?'' "It is the fait' cure." : "Well, thin, see, yez hav' nothing the mat ther wid yez?" "That I have not." "An' iyez have no faith in onytbing that yez haven't?" "Sorra the wan of me." "Well, thin, you see, ye are cured uv it." "Uv I phwat yez haven't got?" "Ah, divil the wan uv it! Uv you's faith, man, uv you's faith." t A young man, a student in Bedouin college, writes to ask "if a special course of study is ' necessary to perfect a young man in political s argument?" Oh, no; one easy lesson is all you want. For instance, to say "Grove Cleve land" is a knock down Republican argument, and to say "Jim Blaine" is an unanswerable Democratic argument. "Old Bill Evarts" is a "chain of invulnerable logic," and "Old Tom Bayard" is a "scathing arraignment of i me aaminibirauiuii. iusv jr. kj. x. t - -i i i - - . i: m . t l n r t , , ii ; resistless torrent of matchless eloquence," il'J'J 2ess thrust of brilliant and merciless sarcasm." Just attend a few meetings and then read the f reports in the papers, son, and you'll soon i perfect yourself in political argument. ! Brooklyn Eagle. It is Odd. A nameless professor relates the following: During the after dinner talk, the man for whom I was surveying remarked that mathe aatics always seemed a very wonderful thing to him. Thinking to interest him somewhat, I began to illustrate some of the wonders; among others, tried to show him the way in "which Neptune was discovered. After some twenty minutes of elaborate explanation, I was somewhat taken aback to hear him say: 'Yes, yes; it is very wonderful, very; but (with a sigh) there's another thing that's allers troubled me, and that is, why you have '. to carry one for every ten; but, if you don't, twon't come out right." School Journal. Fashionable Profanity. In the way of shocking things, fashion able profanity among wealthy and refined girls may be mentioned. While it has not gone to the extent of the worst oaths from feminine lips in good society, the milder expletives have come into piquant use. The evil began last autumn wfch a vogue for quaint exclamations. These were at first merely original and curiou3, and the girl who could make unique ejac ulations was thereby distinguished in her circle. Gradually the demand for stronger, riskier language arose, and the license of fashion extended to almost but not quite outright oaths. Now the genuine damn is not unheard in the boudoir and parlor of the belle, and she exclaims, "My God!" on the slightest occasion. The latter of fense is excused by some in consequence of French precedent. Parisian ladies of the aristocracy say "Mon Dieu" com monly. But the habit has reached its limit here, revulsion has come and pro fanity from sweet mouths may be ex pected to cease this spring. New York Letter. YFhy Is It Twenty-one Gnns? Former Sub Treasurer Thomas C. Ac ton met a reporter in Wall street the other day and said: "For fifteen years I have hunted high and low to find the reason for firing twenty-one guns as a national salute, not only in this but in other coun tries. I applied to the army and navy de partments for information, and was told that it was a 'regulation.' I knew that before. I then asked Judge Charles P. Daly, who knows about everything that is worth knowning, and Judge Daly couldn't help me. What I want to know is, why aje twenty-one guns always fired for a Dational,salute?" Philadelphia Call. Wasted Money Is "Wasted Strength. Aside from the lack of money, there is a I prodigality too often observable which is i never a part of the successful man.
