As we vmm botwling delightfully
"iindelightfully'' over the mainy
r'ailway crossings abetween here and
Newberry we were discussing the pro
posed chaging of the highway to one
side of the railroad tracks. Being
al,ways on the qui vive for news items
we said, "Well, who are the ones in
terested in this proposed change, any
way ?'' The mana at the wheel
promptly replied,'"Those who are
most disinterested.'' He was speak
ing from the standpoint of real es
tate, we presume. Nevertheless we've
been thinking what a delightful half
hour's spin this road would afford if
it were not for the dangers and
bumps incident to these aforemen
tioned crossings. Mr. Editor, aren't

The Hardest-Worked Joke.
"What do you consider the most
used joke in Chicago to-d'ay i'" asked
No one answered for a time, but
at last some one mentioned "Great
weather for ducks," as being worth
while for a leader.
The barber supply man spoke up:
" 'Got my hair cut -to-day,' I said
to a friend. "Why, don't you get
them all cut ?' he replied. Seems to
me that rwith all the new hair-cuts
in a day in Chicago, and all the fool
friends of .t'he iair cutees, this joke
would be pretty well worn. Let's
give, it the crown.''
The man with the happy face and
tho red nose to m'ention the bartend
er, who invariably inquired: "Have
it wrapped up?'' when you ordered
two fmngers of rye. It was received
in silenee. They alt drank rye and
remembered the noise.
The man who says, "Good-by, old
chap; don't take~ any wooden mon
y,'' was inext reviled.
Then comes the prize idiot, who
gives you a kick between the shoul
ters with his fist, and shouts, "See
your back again,'' grinning vacuouS
The elevator man, who hiad stop
ped to listen to the stories between
his tricks on the car, had been
standing,on one leg and then the
other, nervously 'biting the stem of
his .pipe. One of the crowd noted
"What's your?'' he w.as asked.
" This is where I get even for ten
years' injustice,'' exploded the ele
vator chauffeur. "Without one sin
gle doubt in the world, I am the fall
guy for the dumbest hard-working
mn ever stood for. TQ cap it all,
it is shoved at me hot and cold ev
ery day in the month, and every
month in the year.
"Every man who gets on an ele
vator after some successful deal, or
has the taste of some well-milked
drink tickling his palate, hands it to
me. Stenos, office boys, clerks, sales
men-every one, in fact-ladies it
out, and each and every rum among
them .thinks it's brand new.''
"For heaven's sake, what is it?
Give it to us quick!
"iThe elevator man certainly has
his 'ups and downs,'' almost yelled
the conductor. "That's the only
joke that drives elevator men to
drink, and if there is any prize given
in this contest, I win 'em all.
" There are about 800 elevator
men ip Chicago, and I know, from
tn yjae' actual ,eaeience, 1dat
that durn fool poke, moss and all, 3s
cracked five .times a day in the pres
ene of each and every elevator man
"That means 4,000 times a day,
20,000 times a month, and 1,440,000
times a year! If that ain't a record
for one poor measly, moth-eaten joke
I'll eat it.''
