Bill Rain, the veteran engineer of the Santa Fe, tells the following: “One day when I was in freight service I caught a work train out to a point near Topeka. We had orders to work for a foreman named Smith. Smith had the honor of being the father of a boy about 19 years old, who, if he had had a little more sense,' would have been half-witted. While riding on the engine Smith said to me: “ ‘Bill, I wish you would take that boy of to Topeka with you and get him a job in the roundhouse.’ “ ‘What do you want to get him a job in the roundhouse for?” I asked him. “ ‘Well, I want him to work to be en engineer,’ he said. “I asked him, ‘why don’t you give him a job on the section and let him work up to he a foreman?’ “ ‘Well,’ he said, ‘you know, Bill, the boy ain’t quite bright.’ ” A Paradoxical Proof. “The engine which has replaced the old oaken bucket,” remarked the do mestic philosopher, “is what might he called a remarkable practical para dox.” “Why so?” inquired a bystander. “Because,” answered the philoso pher, “it is the only thing I know of whereby truth can be raised from the bottom of its well by hot air.” Stillness Almost Oppressive. “Mrs. Tomwit is living very quietly since her husband died.” “Well, most women live quietly aft er their husbands die. They do for a while, at any rate.” “But Mrs. Tomwit’s case is excep tional. When the late Mr. Tomwit blew his nose he could be heard a block away.” EASY TO PLEASE. [_ Mamma —Say, Willie, haven’t you some broken toys that I can send to the heathen? ( Willie —No, but I guess I can break up a few. Up to Date. Customer —What? Butter up to $1.75 a pound? I can’t pay that price. Grocer —That’s all right. We can sell you butterine, a substitute for but ter, at $1.70; oleomargarine, substi tute for butterine, at $1.65; cheeserine, a substitute for oleomargarine, at $1.50; churnine, a substitute for cheeserine, at $.155; or dairyine, a sub stitute for churnine, at $1.50.” —Puck. A Warm Surprise. The poor old woman who scalded herself by falling into a tub when she heard the guns go off for the late king of Denmark wasn’t in any way to blame for that sad event, was she?” “Of course not.” “Yet she got herself into hot water about it.” Those Foolish Questions. Bates (at phone)—Hello! Is this Main 2077? Voice at the other end —It is. Bates —Is Mr. Jones there? Voice —Yes; do you want to talk with him? Bates —No, you idiot! I want to hand him a cigar. Cause and Effect. “Dibbs was yelling like a Comanche Indian on the street last night.” “What got into him?” “I don’t know what he’d had to drink, hut what got into him is what made him yell.” " ' " "' '" % Circular Trips. “Our little boy travels a great deal and yet he never gets anywhere.” “How does that happen?” “He has a fondness for the merry go-round.” Cruelty to a Poet. • Poet —I called to see if you had an opening for me. Editor —Yes, there one right behind you, shut it as you go out, please.— Satire. Obvious. Bessie —Wonder if Maude knows that we are looking at her new gown? Jessie —Certainly; what do you sup pose she is walking down this street for? Its Place. “Living in such a gloomy place, where does that pretty girl get her bloom and freshness?” “That’s easy. Out of her vanity hag.” Comparisons. “We have a spanking team at our place. It’s my uncle’s horses, Dash and Flash.” “We’ve got a spanking team at our place, too. It’s pa and ma.” Announcement Having purchased the W. G.
