Let the old men. if their mem ories go back to 1860, recall the old hardware store, and they will re call that on the shelves 95 per cent, came from England and 5 per cent, were produced in the United States.

Yes. made in American shops by American workingmen from Ameri can raw material.—Hon. William McKinley. An authority on slang produces the following on a popular term: A "rubber neck" is somebody who is trying to get next door to some body's affairs. A woman that keeps looking out of the window to see what her next door neighbor is do ing, or prying into affairs th: t do not concern her in the least bit is one of them, and the woman who is straining every nerve to curry favor and receive compliments from men by showring upon them de ceitful smiles is also a "rubber neck You've seen a man trying to read over another man's sholder. He's a "rubber neck," because you see j s stretching his neck to get on to some thing that's none of his business. It will be readily, seen. r> that, according to this definition,, that evrey community has its "rub ber neck." A Western judge, sitting in chambers, seeing from the piles of papers in the lawyer's hands that the first case was likely to be hot ly contested, asked: "What is the sum in question?" "Two dollars said the plaintiff's sounsel. "I'll pay it," said the judge, handing over the money; "call the next case."

Here is a problem taken from an exchange that our mathemat ical friends may try to solve: Three negroes stole a sack of apples and . hid them in a barn, After they had retired one of them concluded he would get up and take his share.. He counted the apples and found he could divide them equally by throwing one away, which he did. After he had gone another went ■■ for the same purpose. He threw one away and took one third of the re mainder. When he was gone the third man came, threw away one and took one-third of the remainder. When they awoke in the morning neither told the other what he had done, but they threw one away and divided the remainder equally. How many apples were in the sack at the begining? You must be on your good be barior this evening, George, for the minister is to take dinner with us, said a Hyattsville lady to her worser half, as he got home from his office in the city last Thursday. "What have you for dinner?,, queried the husband. "Well, I know he is fond of fish, so I bought quite a string of small river fish and several larger ones from the dam. "I'm not much at doing the hon ors when we have a minister at the table," said George, "but 1 guess we can get through with it all right. Half an hour later they were seuted at the table and a blessing had been asked by the minister.. little nervously, the head of the house began dishing out the veg utables, and, turning to the guest, said : » Will you have some of the little • river fish, or would you prefer some the the dam big fish?" U The warning kick from under the table from hi3 wife tvas unnecessa ry. He knew he had blundered, and cold beads of perspiration started out on his forehead.

His daugh ter slily pulled his coat tail to • bring him to his senses, "That is, would you like some of the river fish or some of the other dam fisn?"
