The Best Appointed Bath Roorns in the City,
His name was Yet Wah,
With no high sounding "Al;"
To form a front step to his name.
A wash house he kept,
Where he feasted and slept,
And rustled for washee and famea
Now, Yet was a man
Whom the rest of his clan
Regarded as pure to a fault;
So with limitless trust
Their hoardings they thrust
In the tea chest that served as his vault
Yet winked his off eye
As he saw the chink fly
Thro' the slot In his Improvised bank;
"Me sabbee." said hae.
With a chuckleof glee,
"Fool Chinee.pan-allee same crankl"
Time rapidly passed.
Till Yet Wah at last
Decided his harvest to reap.
So one silent night '
He arose, lithis light,
The bad resolutlon to keep
"Like Meilcan clerk."
Said he, with a smirk.
"We steal 'em an' then run awayl
Me brave-me no care
How Chineeman swear
In Canada Yet Wah will stayl"
With half nervous zest
He crept to the chest,
Unlocked it, and raised up the lid;
Then, peering lnside,
He sprang up wild eyed,
With a face as pale as the dead
"Wha' for uck-a hil"
Was his terrified cry,
As he sank out of breath, 'gainst the wall;
"Some heap bad Chinee
Been hero before me,
An' stealee my money an' all
"Thro' a hole In the bottom
Some roguey chap got 'em;
KiL-yi! it makose me sick!
Bimeby eusno Chinee
He lay it on me
Say me stole 'em. and killee me qulekl"
Like a hideous deanm,
So ended Yet's scheme,
And. fearing the crisis, he "dusted;"
Like a shadow of night,
He slunk out of sight,
Himself, like his bank, nearly bustedt

In the first two months of this year
the Pennsylvania railroad earned
nearly $9,000,000, and spent nearly
~,$,500,000 in operating the road. That
is a pretty large business. It indicates
the inmmense importance and power of
a great railway corlporlation from a
counuercial view.

W. M. Hyde, of near Sand Hill,
Carroll county, Ga., gives the particu
lars of a rat massacre which occurred
at his houee. Tie rats were grinding
his corn without toll, and, as he was
fully able to keep up with his own
grinding, he concluded to oust the
trespassel's. He surrounded his crib,
a building about eight by twelve
and tell deep, in which was stored
about one hundred bushels of corn.
Well equipped with dogs, children and
clubs, he proceeded to wake up the
natives. After tle first onslaught the
corpses of 216 ra-ts were weighed and
tipped the beam at forty-live pounds.

It L.oks, to ar Witer.
Two young women enter a well
known uptown restaurant for lunch
eon. As they sit down one of them
begins to tell how hungry she is,
while her companion echoes her senti
ments with fervor. "I thought we
should never get here," says the first.
"I am actually faint,"says the second,
"and I am going to eat and not talk a
bit." Each of them seizes a bill of
fare and begins to look it over. The
first runs her eye up and down the
sheet, evidently in doubt. At times
she pauses for a moment as if she had
decided what to order, but she seems
to find nothing satisfactory.
Her friend has begun an entirely
different examination. Starting at
the top of the list, she goes down it
slowly, examining everything care
fully. It seems as if she were sure to
hit upon a choice. When she reached
the last word on the last page she
looks up and sighs. "What are you
going to order?' she asks with an air
,of resignation. "1 am sure I don't
kno*," is the discouragiug reply.
The waiter, who has been standing
stock still, moves his feet a little un
easilry. "Let's begin on the soups,
Jen,' says one, and they fall to study
ming the soups. After a pause the one
addressed as "Jen" suggests in an
apologetic manner mock turtle soup.
"Oh,' says the other, "I thought to
mato would be nice." "I don't care,
so long as it is something," is the re
"Now, Jen, you don't want tomato.
You only say that to please me."
"I do, too; you know I do."
"You might be frank about it,"
coolly. "There is no reason why we
shouldn't have both."
The waiter wearily changes from
one leg to the other.
"Well then, I'll order mock turtle."
"But I don't want mock turtle; you
know I don't. I won't have it."
The waiter moves off silently, just
in time for them to turn and see his
"Isn't this vexing?" says the one
who had suggested mock turtle soup.
"I shall make a complaint about that
man." The waiter, having noticed
that they are looking for him, hurries
across the room.
"Will you bring us some mock tur
tle?" says the one who wanted tomato
soup, severely.
"No, no, don't," protested the other.
"Tomato served for two." The waiter
looks on helplessly, but does not make
a start.
"Now, Jen, don't be perverse."
"You are perverse."
Then comes a digonified pause, fol
lowed by a respectfu-cough, to remind
them that their order is still hanging
"Then," says one, "let's just have
some plain consomme;" and consom
me it is.
After the waiter returns with their
order, each says that she hopes the
other is satisfied. The waiter goes
away and returns three times to gret
the rest of the order. He .tries the
shuffling of feet and the changing of
positions, but they have finished their
soup now and are discussing gowns.
Finally the waiter has recourse to the
respectful cough again, and they both
"Oh, what shall we have next?"
asks "'Jen."
"It's such a bother to order. I wish
papa were here. He doesn't have any
"I don't feel very hungry now, any
way. Suppose we don't wait any
longer, but go around to get our hat."
"All right," gratefully.
"Let me pay for the check; I have
just the amount."
"No let me; I want to get a ten
dollar bill changed."
"No, I insist."
Another pause and another cough.
The waiter takesthe check and money
and starts for the cashier's desk. In a
moment he is back again. "The quar
ter is punched," lie says, with a bow.
"Oh, Jeu. now you will have to get
the bill changed."
"Jen" hunts around for her purse,
finds it antd begins to look for the bill.
"I know I have it," she says, "but
where is it?" After going carefully
over all the bills she remembers that
she spent the ten dollar bill down town.
"Here's five, any way," she says with
great satisfaction, and the waiter goes
off again. Having gotten their change
they talk for five minutes more, trying
to decide whether they shall go to look
at the hat after all or go up to get
"Amy." They finally decideideupon the
hat, and as they move toward the door
the waiter picks up the punched quar
ter they left for him and leans against
the wall with a sigh of relief.-New

A Few Strenuous Protests Culled by The
Detroit IFree Press.
The last issue of The Arizona Kicker con
tains the following cheerful paragraphs:
Nyr A SUCCESS.-Last Saturday night
soon after 11 o'clock some gentleman whose
identity is unknown to us fired a charge of
buckshot through the side window of our ed
itorial room directly at the spot where our
cot is usually placed. Had the cot been there
we should have been inquested on and buried
ere this. But the cot wasn't there. We are
not purty, but we are no hayseed. We
haven't slept twice in the same spot for the
last twelve weeks We have learned the
ways of this community at considerable cost
and trouble and we don't propose to plant
ourselves as a midnight target.
We feel sorry for the gent who wasted his
energies and ammunition. He doubtless went
away from the window feeling that he was
entitled to credit for doing a smart thing.
Come again, old chap.
CAN'T TELL YET.-The Boston Acme Opera
company is billed for two nights next week
at Carter's hall. This may be a first class
combination, or it may be a snide show which
our people should give the cold shoulder. No
tickets have been left at this office up to date,
and we shall not express our opinion in this
ERaATA.-We find we were in error last
week in regard to the shooting affray be
tween the lHo. Bill Dakin and CoL Jones.
We supposed at the tune that CoL Jones was
a regular subscriber to this paper, but a look
through our list proves that we have never
had his name at all On the contrary, the
Hon. Dakin has subscribed for five copies.
We were misinformed as to the following:
1 Dakin did not call Jones a liar.
2. Dakin did not draw his gun first.
3. Jones did not offer to apologize.
We were hasty hi saying that Dakin ought
to swing from a limb, and that he had long
been a terror to the tuwn. We found him to
be a mild, court.,ous, u enteel citizen, full of
push and enterprise, and his presence is a
,redit to the town. Col. Jones had better
travel for his health as soon as able, and in
case he finds a town to suit him better he
should buy it and settle there.

The office doctor now actually exists
in every large city in the country.
There were always a certain number
of physicians known as office doctors,
but they were not the real article, for
when called upon they were always
ready to respond at any hour of the
day or night. With the office doctor
of today this cannot be expected, and
it is only in the most urgent cases that
he goes beyond his own threshold pro
fessionally. The modern office doc
tor has his re eular hours and adheres
to them rigidly. During those hours
le can be found at his office ready for
work. After the expiration of the of
fice hours, however, lie is as diflicult
to lind as a defeated candidate after
election. The age is progressive in
everything, and the disciples of A:scu
lapius are as enterprising as their
brethren in other professions and call
ings.-St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Electrio Fire Engines.
An electric fire engine, which can
be tapped for service whenever want
ed, is the latest invention. The advan
tages claimed are that it can be started
at full speed; that it is much lighter
than a steam lire engine of equal
power; that it costs one-third less;
that it is noiseless in its operationu;
makes no smoke, *parks nor ashes;
that it is safer and easier to control
and is econolnical.-New York Tele
He Played to Lose.
He was a keen, sharp looking young man,
and he said to the laly of the house on Second
avenue as he stood in the hall:
"Madame, I have called for the suit of
clothes which needs brushing and fixing."
"What suit?" she asked.
"Your husslband's Sunday suit, ma'am. He
called as he went down this morning."
"And he said I was to let you have them?"
"Did he appear in good health and spirits?"
"Why, certainly."
"Look and act natural?"
"Of course. Why do you aski"
"Because he Ihas been dead eighteen years,
and I have some curiosity on the subjectl"
"1-- have made a mistake, perhapsl" stam
mered the young man,
"Perhaps you have. The man you saw go
out of here an hour ago is my brother. You
may have better luck in the next block with
the old fashioned confidence game. Good
morningl"--Detroit Free Press.
The Proper Dogs for a Barber.
Mr. Spicer has just settled himself in the
chair for a short cut, when the artist in at

"That is very appropriate," said Spicer.
"Vy do you call zo little dogs appropriate,
Mr. Spizarel" asked the barber, as he tucked
the apron into his victim's neck until his eyes
"Because," gasped Spicer, "greyhounds are
good to catch the hare."

"Not yet, Ilenry," she whispered softly;
"indeed, you must not speak to papa yet. I
do love you, love you sincerely, but you must
wait a little longer."
"Dut why, Margaret?" he asked, reproach
fully. "Why must we wait so long; surely
you do not doubt mo?"
