HOARD’S FUNNY YARNS.
He Enlivened the Deliberations n f Hiß Brethren of the Farmers’ In stitute® - - tey Call Him the Lincoln of Wisconsin From the Chicago Hernia. Madison, Wis., Feb. 38 —Wisconsin’s hnmelV executive enjoys a wide reputation a spinner of yarns, and none does be tell ith a keener relish than th' se at his own Gov. h oard possess: s in a high 1.1 ee the indescribable “knack” of telling ■tories He i fine dialectician, and there in lies the chief secret of iis success. His L.ave and homely face, too, adds tremen dously to the effect of his storks. In many “ ards he bears almost a striking rese a h’ance to an illustrious American—a cir cumstance which has given him the title the “Lincoln of Wisconsin.” His body 1 long and lank; his face is distressingly lain ’ his arms are elongated; ihere is at- L avas ’ a sad, reflective expressi >n to the countenance, and, above all, there is a con stant croppi g out of humorous yarns. In printed form his stories are liable to fall Lit for lack of the indispensable environ ments which Hoard’s personality can alone cast about them. Mr H ard, while yet a plain taltteror agricultural topics at the farmers’ institutes whit h his e ergv hasdone~so much to ele vate to their present unexcelled standing, wa9 wont to (jtnet disagreeable wrangling* or expose the unfortunate characteristics of the farmers by relating some apropos storv. Hoard was present at up institute when the agricultural brethren fell to dis puting in an unsoemly manner, and all be cause of a misunderstanding. Mr. Hoard remarked that he was ‘‘reminded of a 6 t o ry.” Ho said that the officers of a cer tain college bad decided to engage some proficient person to give instruction in the mvsteries of signs. A learned Chinaman was a! last selected as the man for the place, and on his arrival it was arranged to give him a suitable reception. But embarrass ment at o, ce occurred over the selection of a suitably representative of the college to first meet ad greet the new profes or. There was a store wd old Scotch janit rat the institution, and by a happy thought he was hit unon as one who was as well quali fied to meet the newcomer as any one. When the auspicious moment for tiie meet ing came, the child of the Orient ap proached the Scotchman and rnadi a low salaam, to which the latter responded even more n mbly. Then the Chin-.man took an orange from his pocket, and, silent as a sphinx, thrust it out before him with an exultant expression on his countenance. The Scotchman looked bewildered for a moment, but a happy idea suddenly seized him, and with much vigor he pulled a piece cf bread from bis pocket and extended it toward his strange visitor. Then the lat ter held up one finger to which two fingeas were held up in response. This was fol lowed by three fingers on the part of the Chinaman. The Scotchman then clinched his fist aud thrust it into the new professor’s face. Afterward the Chinaman was asked to explain what was the purport of his sign conversation with the Scotcuman. “My bow to him,” was the reply, “was an indication of respect. His deeper bow Indicated even greater respect for me. My exhibition of an orange was to show wha crulo be produced in the Chinese Empire, and his display of bread indicated that in America wheat was a leading product. When I held up one finger that represented the Father; the two fingers exhibited on the part of my friend showed there was a Father and a Son, while my three fingers represented the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost. The clinched hand indicated the three in one.” Then the Scotchman was asked for his exnlanation of the silent interview. Sandy thought the Chinaman’s low bow v. as in tended to convey the idea that he (the Scot) was boo old to stoop so far, which notion he pretended to dispel by a deeper obeisance. The production of an orange was offset by the piece of bread, which in the janit u’s eyes was of much more value than the fruit. The Celestial’s holding up of one finger was particularly offensive to the Caledonian, who had only one natural eye, a glass optic doing duty for the other. He accordingly held up two, thereby meaning he could see as much with his single eye, as the Chinaman could with two. When the latter displayed throe fingers the Scot, tired of wbat he regarded as foolery, clinched his fist, intimating a desire to strike the visitor. The governor tells another story, which, as related by him, is intensely funny, of a yankee who had a speedy team, whioh he claimed, had never been passed but once. One day the yankee overtook a funeral procession, which had been brought to a halt by the giving out of one of the horses which drew the hearse. The yankee volun teered the use of his horses to take the place of rtie other team, and in a few moments he found himself on the hearse driving slowly his speeiy animals. Ju tat this juncture a rival whom lie had frequently va quisbed on the race track came speeding bv, evi dently highly exultant at once getting his old adversary at a disadvantage. Human ca; ;re asserted itself in the yankee, how ever, and he let his horses out. Then an exciting race was begun, which only ceased on the part of the yankee when he was over taken by a man who rode tip at a furious rate on horseback and told him that “there was a funeral procession half a mile back which as willing to put in a little time In a lugubrious way If it only had a corpse to head it.” This was the only time the yan kee was free to confess that he had ever been passed on the road. On another occasion this dialogue oc curred: Mr. Hoard—l would like to ask Mr. Lewis w:at agencies shall we employ t > get at the agricultural mind to work upon it, to sdr it up, and thereby promote this very desirable dairy education among fa mers) Mr. Favill—l just want to put. the an swer in your mouth for that. It will be to take Hoard's Dairyman (newspaper). Mr. Hoard—Mr. President, Mr. Favill wiil hand over a dollar, for he is not a sub icriber. Mr. Hoard constantly taught AVisconsin diarymeti to color their butter Buitablv to secure a good sale on the market. “At eparta,” said he, “the landlord put some luitter on the table that was as white ns lard, and when I asked him about it he said: “Ah! you don’t catch me having colored butter on my table.’ 1 didn’t ask him why his wife colored her stockings,” was the future governor’s significant com- One of the governor's good stories is that c" the old Dutchman who married two days after the burial of bis first wife.

Of you bef no respect for me you should for the dead.” J “ r - Hoard thought this a case of monu mental gall.

From the Boston Transcript. Not a great while ago a party of half a dozen Ha vard s u ient- wore in a barber’s shop in this city, and, after having been b u,iliei and adorned tonsorially, one of the number was struck wit ian idea. It was communicated to his companions, and with out a dissent ing voice agreed to. The prop osition was n, thing less than to purchase the barber’s pole, which was done, and a receipt taken. Then the young men sallied forth with their striped and parti-colored acquisition. They had not cone far, how ever, when they were overhauled by a policeman. “Hello, there! what are you doing with that pole*” “ That’s our business.” “Your business, eh? Well, I’ll make it mine. Come along with me!” They were marched straight to the near est station and stood up in hue before the captain. “What’s the trouble, officer?” asked the captain. “Stealing a barber’s pole.” The officer felt quite proud of his capture and related with particularity all the cir cumstances of his arrest. The c iptain look and upon the offenders and was about to order them to be locked up for the night when one of the students groduced a paper and suggested that perhaps the captain might like to look at that. The captain looked at it. Then turing to the policeman, he said: , “Officer,%ou may return to your beat.” A moment later the students might have been seen filing cut of the station with their tonsorial standard held proudlv aloft. They had not gone far, however, before they were again brought to a halt by an other officer, who, like his predecessor, wanted to know where they were going with chat pole. He was informed that that was their business, and he in turn assured them that he would make it his business, which he did by escorti' g them to the self-same station they had just quitted. “Wbat’s the trouble, officer?” “These fellers have stole a barber's pole, and—” “Very well; you may return to your beat.” Tne captain smiled as he dismissed the students. Hardly had he resumed his von led gravity of aspect before the door opened and again entered a policeman, six young men and barber’s pole. Ands iit went on. Six several times were the students and their barberous property brought by as many different policemen into that station, and bad not an officer been speed lly sent out to warn all patrol mon under no oiicumstances to interfere with six young men and a barber’s pole, it is more than likely that that pole and its learers would have been brought into that station as many times that night as there were patrolmen’in the district. People who wondered w at was the cause of the hilarious laughter which proceeded from the usually grave aud quiet station, on tue night in question, are now fully in formed if the same. balled belles. A Faint, Muffled tinkle ae an Accom paniment of the Poetry cf Motion. From the Chicago Tribune. Can you guess the latest fad of the girl of the period? You cannot? Then it is this: She wears bells on her garters. Did any one ever hear of the like? Who could have started such a senseless and bar baric idea? What is its significance and what will be the outcome? But who is it proclaims it “hall be so? Fashion —Dame Fashion—it is her Invin cible decree. The fad has just reached our midst, com ing, as it does, from Best in’seuliured spin sters. It his come slowly and perhaps re luctantly, but it has taken the feminine faucy and consequently has cone to stay. Think of it! What a jingling sound will be heard Saturday afiernoons when women take their accustomed promenade up State street. How the fad ever originated history fails to tell, but hear ay has it that a cert an in genious husband, cisliking the stealth, tread of his wife, in that she often surprised him at his reveries and dreams, com e ved this plan of her wearing a bell that hj m ght be alwayscogmzant of her approaca, like the cow-bells worn by tne pretty Al derney*. Little thought he that in a few short months thousands of grateful hus bands would be thanking him for the timely s, ggestion. The wearing of these folly garters wa< first brought to the writer’s notice so ne few days since when duty required that a call be made upon one of society’s reigni g belles. As the youn - woman entered the room a tinkling sound was audible in addi tion to the gentle frou-frou of her dress. Nothing particular was thought of it, how ever, at the time, presuming some toy ter rier or household pet was folio .ring its mis tres ; but as every movement on the part of the lady brought forth the same almost inaudible ring, and a previous observation had proved that no bangles or noisy jewelry was worn, curiosity—proverbial woma .’s curiosity—got the up >er hand, and ears were strained in the effort to discover what portion of the lady’s dress emitted such mysteri us sounds. Noticing her visitor’s discomfiture she smiled, jumped up, thereby producing a perfect medley of sound, amt exclaimed, “Don’t you know wbat it is?” The visitor had to admit her ignorance. “Why, they are the latest thing in— ahem!—garters. All the eastern ladies wear them, but Chicago women are ju-t waking up to the tact. Cute idea, don't you think? It excites the curiosity so, be sides being rather fascinating.” “No, you can’t purchase them in the city,” in answer t > an inquiry, “but the bells can be procured at the jeweler’s and sewed to the el istic.” “Yes, they are worn on all occasions. Of course, they make some noise, but it would hardly te noticeable out of doors with the rattle of cars and carriages.” • MEDICAL.
