William Allen White says that
during a severe drought that once af
]i!cted the state of Kansas 'a visitor
from the east was one day driving
across country in the direction of To
peka when he met a farmer hauling a
wagon load of water. A desultory
conversation ensued between the two.
"Where do you get your water?"
asked the man from the east.
"'Bout seven miles up the road
from here," was the reply.
"What!" exclaimed the stranger.
-"do you mean to say that you haul
water seven miles for your family
"I shore do." answered the Kansan.
"But, man." expostulated the east
erner, "why in the name of common
sense don't you dig a well?"
"Stranger," replied the farmer, with
a grin, "out this direction it's jest as
'far one way as the other."

-a lovely wax Cupid lying among
flowers with rose bushes and vines1
rising up behind. In the rose bushes
sit three exquisite little birds. YouI
drop 5 pennie ("pfennige-2 1-a
cents) into a slot, and immediately
the birds open their little mouths and
chirp and sing more naturally than
nature itself, while simultaneosuly
he Cupid raises his head a little, op
ens his pretty eyes, smiles at the birds
and then sinks slowiy among the flow
ers like a very sleepy child.
I am bewildered and confused. It
seems almost impossible for me to
pull myself together.
Many of the great army officials
and servants speak good English.
One of them has just been into my
room to take my Dorn & Minis suit
to an artist within the hotel to be
made new. You have to dress anew
and very carefully every evening for
the 7 o'clock table d'hote, when a
magnificent orchestra plays Beethov
en and Mozart and Wagner. This is
all fine, but my wh'ole heart and soul
is ever with you all.

A Good Majority.
A well known English surgeon was
imparting some clinical instructions
to half a dozen students. Pausing at
the bedside of a doubtful case, he said:
"Now, gentlemen, do you think
this is or is not a case for opera
One by one each student made
his diagnosis, and all of them
answered in the negative.
"Well, gentlemen, you are all
wrong." said the wielder of the
scaepel. "and I shall operate tomor
"No. von won't." said the patient,
and he rose in his bed: "six to one :s
a good majority; gimme my clothes."

who was, until his death, one of the
world's most successful and noted phy
