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.)
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. The Selectmen of said village
proposed to give to the lowest bidder
the privilege of cleaning the school
house and making the fires in the same
during one calendar year, a privilege
for which the incumbent had hitherto
been granted the round sum of 1 2
marks per annum. 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
"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 -
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.
What is the use of a cook who read?
novels and does not know how to broil
steak or make soup palatable ? —
