Une of the Boys.
Aurora has a little jackass that enjoys a drunken spree and will drink liouor until his ears can no longer wag. Wliiie under the influence of wine or whisky he will perform many amusing tricks. One day a number of Bodieit- s visited Aurora. After drinking all they could convt n ently carry, the itodieites turned their attention to the jack. He was es corted into a saloon and the champagne ordered. The jack took his "medicine" like an old-timer. After the second quart had disappeared the animal be came frisky and wanted more. He tried to climb upon the bar, and when intim idated he displayed a bad temper by kicking a county official in the abdomen and biting a lawyer's leg. Not until he had drunk a pint" of whisky did the in temperate jack quiet down. In the morning he was found stretched out near a deserted building. A.cocktail re vived him, and lie was ready for another "run with the boys."— Bodie (Cal.) Free Press. The Result of Ambition. Competition is the soul of trade. A case like the following, which happened in an obscure village in Westphalia, de serves to be mentioned for its original ity, strikingly illustrative of the above axiom.

This year a com petitor came forward, and, af r er re peated underbidding, finally offered to do the work "free gratis for nothing." Unwilling to be ousted, the party "in office" thereupon actually agreed to pay 1 mark into the village treasury—nay, went up to 2 marks, but in the end was overbid by the persistent office seeker, who offered to pay 2 maries CO pfennig" for the incalculable privilege of cleaning and making the lires in tlio school-house .—American Beg is 1er. He Couldn't Stand It. "My son," said a solicitous mother to her wayward 10-year-oJd, "I want you to be a good boy or you will go to tho bad place and remain there forever." % "Do they keep shingles and slippers there?" "No. of course not, Johnny; they would bo burned up in such a terrible place in no time." "Well, then, ma, I guess I can stand it," and-tho boy slid gently iut-o.n cush ioned chair with a slight contortion of the face as though there was a tender spot about his nature somewhere which his mother could get at .—Toledo A nier - ican. ___ Cookery in Dixie. We state positively that most of the cooks in the South to-day are ignorant of the elementary principles of t'uo culinary art, and that they are either too stubborn or too stupid to b» 1 in sructed. A practical brauch of cookery, taught by an expert would be a valuable addition to our public-school system.
