Newson tells of an amusing Incident in which a dead duck dis played tuorv activity than would a llv* oiip. The incident Is as follows: *’\Ve saw a small flock of broadbllls approaching. They came direct I j for us, j but uuforluuately did not stop for our decoys. As they arrived almost over 1 us w* stood up and flrisl. 1 pulled on a nlro plump looking drake, lie start •d to fall, ao I turned my socoud loud hnwe rather promiscuously and then started to load up. lichlud me Joluiuy was still shooting. Then Johnny yelled, atul something lilt me u mighty swat on the back of my nock, when1 upon I tried to clean n big bunk of stone of its barnacles by means of my nose and i front tooth. This may bo pleasant to look upon, but it is not an enjoyable past line. *‘I hsd always liked Johnny, but the thought that hs hsd lilt me on the hark of the n«*k and was now laugh lug was t«»o much. 1 started for him with murder In my eye aud a large driftwood stlek in tny hand. Johnny, still in tits of laughter, imintcd behind me and mumbled sonic words about ‘duck.' I looked around, aud there be hind me on the rocks was the name plump looking drake Hint I had shot at the llrst time. It was hard to real ize that such a small bird had such a mighty swat. “When Johnny lind come out of Ids convulsions and 1 had picked the feathers out of my back hair wo look ed around a hit and found there were four deud hrondhtlls, so I cheered up a bit. Johnny didn't need any cheer ing up.”—Recreation. HE WAS THANKFUL. A Reporter Who Appreciated the At tentions of Hio Suporior. A reporter for a 1'hllndelpldu news paper was sent up the statu to net as staff correspondent In an Important court trial. It was the reporter's llrst big out of town assignment, and Ids managing editor kept the telegraph wires busy with Instructions and In quiries. For two days and two nlglds the reporter had received a dispatch from Ids office half hourly, and It be | gan to get on Ids nerves. At the end of the second day he | worked until 1! o'clock in the morning, j filed Ids last page of copy, received I word that Ids story had been re j cell ed. and lie went to bed. Just as he i was putting out the light the hotel porter appeared with the Inevitable (ray and the Inevitable telegram. The reporter opened It and read: “Wluit time does court open in the morning?" It was too much, lie hated the sight of a telegram, lie had been tleelng tin* curse of the dispatches only to have them pursue him to bed. Hi* sal down and wrote to his Otllee the most com icons answer lie could compose: "Court opens at !> o'clyek In Hie morning. It Is now ". Thank you for waking me In time.” — Philadelphia Times. Enl/ac’c Way, Jules Kniidcau relates tlial one time while living in Paris Balzac locked ! himself up in Ids room for twenty two days and twenty-two nights, refusing to see any one* and keeping the cur talus closed and the lights continually hurtling even In hrond daylight. The only human being he saw during this 1 tlmo was his servant, whom he rung for when he felt the need of fond and which he washed down with numerous cttfts of coffee. Ho would throw him self on his lied only when entirely ex hausted from lock of sleep, and he re malned in complete Ignorance of what was transpiring outside, the Htate of the weather and even of the time and day of the week. Ho only freed him self from this voluntary captivity when he had written tbo word “Knd" on the last page of the manuscript he began when lie entered his prison. Coral That Shock*. On the const of the West Indian islands a curious kind of coral Is found, culled "millepoea.” This has a most extraordinary property which makes the jwople who know It very shy of handling It. The moment you pick up a piece a sort of electric thrill runs through you and an agonizing pain shoots through your Jaws. Von feel as If every tooth and every nerve and tnukcle connected with them was burning. The neute pain lusts gener aliy for about half an hour and slowly ! passes off, but the effects do not ills appear entirely for hours. The reason of this curious shock or poisoning Is a mystery. Not Dangerous. “Madam, 1 thought I would tell you ' I met your husband awhile ago, as I 1 heard he had started from home to kill a man he quarreled with.’’ “Oh, sir. fell me—wat my po*r Wil liam shot?" “No, madam.
