How a Revengeful Youth Fooled Pretty Typewriter Out of Spite. The office boy and the blond type writer bad quarreled. It was over a trivial matter, to bo sure, but never theless they were on the outs. Both seemed spitefully revengeful, and when one day the office boy played off sick and went to the base ball game the typewriter made known to the employer the youth's sporting proclivities. This as might be expected caused trouble, and the wrath of the office boy against the young lady with nimble fingers in creased more and more. Days passed, and the lad planned and dreamed of schemes to "get back" at his fair tor mentor, who stood so well in the graces of the employer. Now on ev ery typewriter there ia a small gong which rings when the end of the line is reached. The office boy knew this, and as he watched the prettily tapered fingers throw back the carriage at each tap of the bell he smiled with fiendish glee. It was late in the afternoon. ' The young lady was industriously tapping the keys to finish the firm's corre spondence. She had reached the last letter and remarked to the office bo that her best young man was goinfc, to take her to the theater that even ing; hence her hurry. This only made the office boy smile all the more, for he knew that his time had come. His eyes seemed to say, "Re venge is sweet." The young lady slipped the sheet of paper into the machine and began at lightning speed to write from her notes. The youth watched the carriage eliding to and fro. He took from hie pocket a rusty nail, and as the type writer wrote on unconsciously he tapped the bell lightly with the nail. The young lady, never thinking, pushed the paper up another line and went on. Again the boy tapped the bell, and again the young lady turned the machine. This was kept up un til the maiden had written all there was to write. A small figure had sneaked easily out of the door. The blond with drew the sheet from the machine. She looked at it, and looked again and saw before her a letter written something after the fashion of the latter day stepladder poetry. Not a single line was properly written. The girl grew thoughtful. She seemed to remember that the bell .. had rung a trifle oftener than usual. She looked about the room, and then she remembered that the office boy had once upon a time gone to a base ball game and had remarked subse quently that he would get even. Baltimore Herald. THE WIDDER MULLET. Bill Swilvey wM in jj0 Mood to Subierlb. for a Sew Meeting House. The man who stood at the shackley gate of a hewed log house on the banks of the Cumberland river, where the great pine mountains come down to drink, was the typical mountaineer, saffron hued, scrawny, ill fed and roughly clad, but with it all that innocent ignorance which bunko men delight in when they are woKing ior a victim. "Good morning," I said as I pulled up my horse. "Howd'y," he replied. "I'm looking for Bill Swilvey,"! remarked as a feeler. "You hain't got no furder to loflk, stranger," he said with a grin. "Im him." . ...... ... "Jake Parrish sent me up here to see if I couldn't get you to subscribe something toward the new meeting house at the mill." "Good lordv. BrrnnQ-Ar." lin ptt- claimed, "J'd like the best in the world ter, but I hain't got a hooter." "Why, Jake said you owned this tarm ana were well oft." "Jake's foolin yer," he laughed. "1 wuz workin for him at $1 a day till six months ago, when I married the Widder Mullet an come here ter live. " "Who was Mrs. Mullet?" "She owned this place." "Well, you're in luck," I laughed. "This place is worth something." "That's what I thought' when I hitched up with the widder," he said in a disappointed tone. "And isn't it?" I queried. "It would be ef it wuz free from encumberances. " "Oh, it's encumbered, is it?" "Yes." "Mortgage on it?" "No." "What kind of an encumbrance is on it?" I inquired with a deal of curi osity. "The Wirtilflr Mnllnr tv. urn ha sighed, as the lady appeared at the front door and in a shrill voice wanted to know ,of Mr. Swilvey if that was a sewing machine agent down there. Detroit Free Press. Purifying Water at Home. If there is any question as to the purity of water, none of it should be used for drinking or cooking purposes unless it is first boiled. There are several other methods of purifying water, but boiling is the safest of all. When water is tainted by decaying vegetable matter, several methods are used to purify it. It may be boiled or filtered through charcoal or oak chips, or a little alum may be added. The addition of the astringent wood or the alum causes the albuminous matter in the water to coagulate and fall to the bottom, and the purified water can be poured off. Ladies' Home Journal. nap)- An Anxious Mother. Mrs. Bruton discovered recently that her son Reginald, aged 18, was smoking a vast number of cigarettes every day, and in speaking of the matter to Captain Soaker, a family friend, said; "You know, captain, it isn't those harmless little paper things Reggie smokes that I fear. They are such insignificant trifles, but what I am afraid of is that the dear, unsuspi cious boy will go on smoking them until he acquires the tobacco habit and takes to those great, horrid ci gars and things." "Banish your idle fears, my dear woman," replied the captain. "Sci ence has as yet failed" todiscoyer any actual relation between the cig arette habit and the tobacco habit. As long as your son continues to smoke cigarettes he will never de velop a craving for tobacco." And Mrs. Bruton that evening, aft er exhibiting a beautiful silver cig arette case which she had just bought for dear "Reggie," remarked that Captain Soaker was such a sympa thetic adviser on family affairs, and what a comfort it was to talk with ; hjm when one was in trouble !- Mud In Inland Elver. The lato Mr. Ronnie reported that 400,000 tons of mud were annually discharged into the Thames from the sewers of London, and the innumer able shoals between the Nore and the Downs amply prove that this calculation is not exaggerated. In days gone by, the mud dredged from fiie London docks was carried by barges to the Osier forelands on the banks of the sea, where a valuable frontage for building and other pur poses was obtained. From the mud in ite desiccated state bricks have been made in large quantities, which have been named Sir Robert Wig ram's bricks, having first been made on his lands. London Tit-Bits. '- Leading an Army. General Booth has nominated his daughter, La Marechale Booth-Clibborn, to succeed him in command of the Sal vation Army. In so doing he passes over Lieutenant General Bramwell Booth, who might have been expected to succeed his father. The general gives bis reasons very briefly. "Women are the best rulers," he says. "If you refer to the capacity shown on several occa sions by Queen Victoria, you will agree with me that she acted while her ad visers were seeking how to act. I am arranging that the work of saving human sonls may go. on after my death. All title deeds will be transferred to my daughter's name." . Not Seared.

Eight-year-old Sam spent a winter in Florida and was there limited to two little gills for playmates the only children in the vicinity. Both were charming little maidens one a plump, heavy little blond damsel and the other a slim, thin, witchy little dark eyed elf. It was soon apparent to the young man's mother that he exhibited a de cided partiality for Ethel, the stout little playmate, always giving her the largest piece of cake, the lion's share of the caramels and the prefer ence in all matters of play. So the mother remarked one day, with wise desire to equalize her son s attentions: "Sam, you ought not to give Ethel more than you do Isabel. You should treat them just alike. Isabel is just as nice as Ethel." It is easily imaginable that the small boy's mother was somewhat staggered when that discriminating youth answered gravely, "I like 'em tat." New York Tribune. A Trying Ordeal For a Pianist. JNot long ago 1 was in a room in which there was an eminent pianist. He played as, so far as I know, he alone can play one of Chopin's mas terpiecesdowering his finger tips with the eloquence of iuay voiea. Directly ho had finished, the lady of the house went sailing up to him. "Thank you so much! You should hear my little girl I do so want you to tell me what you think of her. For so small a child not yet learned music two years we think she's wonderful." Before the astonished virtuoso, whose knowledge of English is not profound, could get a word in edge ways there was a small child about 9 years of age planted on the music stool with "Ye Banks and Braes," with variations, opened out in front of her. In a self sufficient little nonenity, who had "Cot yet learned music two years," and who naturally had no music in her, the performance was excusable, and it would be too much to say that Budden death would have been its only adequate reward but in the presence of that famed musi cian I I do not Know wnat ne sur fered. I know what we felt. All the Year Round. Early Wedding Customs. The enamored maiden should have learned long ere this time that to "change the name and not the letter is to change for the worst and not the better." Also that to marry and yet "to keeDher own name istnkpmii her condition forever the same. Getting down . to the wedding it self, it is interesting to know that the word is derived from the Anglo- Saxon term "wed," which was the name of the security- given by the bridegroom at the espousals. This "wed" was held by trustees, and the bridegroom further added such pres ents as he could afford, all of them to go to the bride, or in fact to revert to himself after he fulfilled his con tract of marriage.

TroubleCTlth a Composite Vision. "There is something peculiar about my eyes or the way4 see objects that causes me a great deal of an noyance," said a gentleman yester day. "I seem to see in a composite manner that is, the effect is like a composite photograph. When I am going along the street, my eyes will perhaps receive the image of one man passing, and the next man I meet his image combines with the one I had previously seen and forms j what I take to be the image of a friend. It occurs in this way, as far as I can reason: I pass a man hav ing a mustache, and the next person I meet perhaps has nothing but a goatee. In this last man I do not see the man as he is, but I see a man with a mustache and goatee, and perhaps the combination of fea tures makes the image appear like a friend. I speak to him only to find out my mistake." Pittsburg Dis patch. , The Courage of Impudence.

Chambers' Journal. "Only the Scars Remain' Says Henry Hudson, of the James Smith Woolen Machinery Co., Philadelphia, Pa., who certi fies as follows: j " Among the many testimoni als which I see in regard to cer tain medicines performing cures, cleansing the blood, etc., none impress me more than my own case. Twenty years ago, at the age of 18 years, Iliad swellings coma on ray legs, which broke and became run ning sores. Our family phy sician could do me no good, and it was feared that the bones would be affected. At last, my good old Mother Urged Me to try Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I took three bottles, the sores healed, and I have not been troubled since. Only the scars remain, and the memory of the past, to remind me of the good Ayer's Sarsaparilla has done me. I now weigh two hundred and twenty pounds, and am in the best of health. I have been on the road for the past twelve years, have noticed Ayer's Sar saparilla advertised in all parts of the United States, and always take pleas ure in telling what good it did for me."
