There won’t be anything to leave.” The son-in-law was alarmed. “Great Jupiter!” he exclaimed. “You don’t mean to tell me you have noth ing?” “That’s about the size of it.” The son-in-law devoted himself to profound thought for several seconds. “I have a suggestion to offer,” he said in a businesslike manner. “What is it?” asked the old gent. “Well, I suggest that you take out, say, £25,000 life assurance on yourself to save wear and tear on my mind.”— Illustrated Bits.

You see, I had a little dinner for a few friends in a private room at one of the best restaurants. Every thing was just right, and I was mighty well pleased. One thing was especial ly pretty, and that was the disb of spun sugar in which the fruit was served. It had all sorts of little flowers and bowknots sticking out from it, and every one of the crowd broke off a piece to nibble on. When I went to pay the bill one item surprised me. ‘Eight dollars and a half for a dish’ was something I didn’t understand. ‘What’s it for?’ I asked, pointing to this item. And it was then and there explained to me that a dish of spun sugar was just as much the property of the establishment as one of cut glass or silver, and any damages must be paid for. It was all right enough, but it was new to me.”—New York Sun.

If so, I am the individual you are look ing for.” “You will pardon my diffidence, I hope,” said the man at the desk. “If you are half as competent as you claim to be I feel myself unworthy of becoming your boss.
