What a Dollar Dog Can Do.
A 111:111 in a nearby city bought for
his wife und child a year ago n dog,
lor which he paid a dollar. It was
oh\i<>iisly nothing wonderful in the
canine way—merely a mongrel, with J
the bulldog strain predominant. The !
owner was a in.in in humble elrcum- J
stances, and tli»* dog in bis modest
dwelling wus the principal asset aside
from a few sticks of furniture. The
ot In r night Tom was tied to a leg of
tin- kitchen .-ink. as usual, and the
family went to bill. They were nwuk
ened by tin* dog at midnight scratch
ing at Ills master's door. When his
ina'ter cailie our to see whflt WUS the
mutter the dog. with u remnant of
chewed rope hanging from his collar,
v\hlned and ran to the bend of the
stairway. The house was on tire, and
shortly after woman and child and
man and dog made their escape their
poor dwelling was a mass of glowing
embers. The owner of the dog lias
been urged to part with him for a
large cash consideration; but, though
lie is penniless, he will not part with
the four footed savior of his family.
Neither has the dog at any time hud
thoughts of leaving them for luxurious
kennels —New Y«>rlc Times.

how lTTKig is a DAY 7
8om« of the World’s Inhabitants Eat
315 Meals During One
If we should meet n imgi and he
should casually remark (hat he ate
215 meals yesterday we would doubt
lers be somewhat asiom bed at bis ap
petite. Likewise we w-.uVl feel sorry
for the man who said that, having
foolishly eaten three eggs with bacon
for breakfast, he had so appetite for
his Christmas dinner. Bnt maybe the
tirst man was from Spitsbergen, where
they have h day three and a half
months in length, whereas tin* |><»or
chap who missed the Christmas feast
lived iu Finland, ut Toreua, where
('hrlsftnas day Is something less than
three Ifciurs long.
On the whole. It wottld be rather
wise If one should undertake to do
certain work, to receive so much per
day in payment, to understand just
where the work Is to be done, else one
might have to labor eighteen and a
half hours at Stockholm, If It happen
ed to bi^the longest day of the year,
or all the time from May 21 to July 22
If at Wardbury, In Norway. In St.
Petersburg the longest day Is nineteen
hours and the shortest five hours. At
Toienn, Finland, there Is a twenty-two
hour day. At London and Bremen the
longest day Is sixteen and a half
hours, while ut Hamburg and Dantzig
there are seventeen hours in the long
est day. In Washington the longest
day is about fifteen hours.—Exchange.
Propounded In Prose, It Was Answered
In Rhyme.
In the olden time before the war,
the days ko famous for generous hos
pitality In the south, a brilliant party
was assembled at dinner iu a beau
tiful country ho/nextend. Across the
table wit flashed buck and forth, nud
the guests began to vie with one an
other In proposing conundrums.
Mr. Alexander II. Stephens offered
one which puzzled the whole company,
"What Is It that we eat at breakfast
and drink at dinner?"
For some time no answer came, and
the bright eyes of the southern orator
began to sparkle with triumph, when
Colonel Johnson, taking up the "Com
monplace Book" of the hostess, which
lay conveniently by, wrote Impromptu
upon the flyleaf the following answer:
What Is eaten for breakfast and drunken
for dinner?
Is It coffee or eggs or butter or meats?
Sure double the stomach of obdurate sin
Who eats what he drinks and drinks
w hat he eats.
But let us consider. ’Tls surely not but
Nor coffee nor meats, w hether broiled or
Nor boiled eggs nor poached nor fried In
a batter.
It must, then, be bread. Ah, yes—when
'tis toast!

Blackburn’s Eloquence.
The story is told of senator Proctor
of Vermont In reminiscences by Vice
President Stevenson that when Invited
to go out of the senate chamber just
before the day's session begun he re
plied: "Excuse me. I am paired with
Blackburn on prayers.” When the
Wev. I>r. Butler retired from the
chaplaincy of the senate Blackburn’s
s|>eecli surpassed all others''for ardor
and felicity of expression. "The coun
terpart of the scene that followed his
closing words had never been wit
nessed in legislative assembly. All
were in tears. It was even said that
venerable senators who laid never shed
a tear since the ratification of the
treaty of Ghent actually snhbe I aloud
andt refused to be comforted. At
lengtl). amid silence flint could be felt,
an adjournment was effect e. I. and the
senators passed oat to their hon.e.'i. As
he passed the chair Senator V est in tit)
undertone remarked to the vice presi
dent. ‘Joe never saw him.’ ’’—Wash
ington Herald.
A Pot Walloper.
The parliamentary register for 1S0G
showed that there was then only one
pot walloper in all England. One see
ing the term for the first time might
easily Imagine that a pot walloper was
a species of ichthyosaurus or some oili
er reptile of a past age. It will he dis
covered upon inquiry, however, that
the term “pot walloper" Is literally one
who boils a pot and was applied to vot
ers in certain boroughs of England
where before the passage of the re
form bill of 1832 the quallfb-alJons for
suffrage was to have boiled (walloped)
i'la own pot in the parish for «i\
months.- London Notes mid (Queries.
