The New York iicrrespondrritcf !'*.o
Toledo Blade had a narrow escape. ?
lie was, so to spesk, "in a p;':.;c." It
c-iint,* within a hair's tread th of uetii.ig
into him. lie says: I had .1 terrible
experience. Aw. Friday morning
rather laic.- ilun usual, I too* ti.c orn ?
iiig paper before I dressed. T ho 'i?i
01? failures 01 banks afl'rightened m?.?
Dressing hastily, I rusl.ecl frantically
to the strc.'i, aud throwing my Keif ?n'.o
a cab directed the diivcr to cr.ve furi

of Nimshi, to myotr.ee, Suppose my
banker sl.011.1i fail ! How I Haired
myself for sitting up the night before
till eleven, instead of retiring at ten, :ts
is my custom ! "Drive," I r*tc!aiiv.cj.
The driver drove. Minutes were dol
lars to me. J 0 g*t the mom out was
now the point. Tnc otEcf reached, I
hurriedly directed il lC b?> ?k keeper to
rigure up the account and draw a check
for the entire amount.
"1 will *ign it,*' i said, "and then you
go immediately, a;. fust as your Atten

Get it in large hills. I %viil carry i?on

preservation is the first law. Make
haste."
How slow he seomod! IIow I chaf
ed under ti?c tortoise like movements
of his pencil ! Finally he finished. ?
Than rai?hg his hwa.J he gently sighed:
"Our account is overdrawn just ex
actly sixteen dollars and ninety-three
cents 1"
Then cam* over my agi'a^ed soul a
sweet and balmy calm! Then did I
sink back into a stale of absolute re
pose, and 1 looked out upon the surg
ing street 'vifh a feelinjof indifference
that was lovely behold. It is an r.J
van'age to have nothing, olessed ;tre

A Shower of C'.ichsae.
We had a good of trouble in the
Ciiriy part of the summer with Chubb's
chickens. As far.t as we would plant
anything in our little garden, tnosc
chickens of Chubb's would creep
through the fence, scratch out the
seeds, fill-up and ga home. When the
radish oed had been robbed in this
manner the fifth time, wc complained
to Chubb, lie .vas not disposed lo in
terfere. 4,Ad!ei\"he said, "I tell vou
if docs 'em good to be raked over by
chickens, if I have rcddUhes, give me
chickens to scrate/i around *etn and e:it
up the bug?. Re<?d;shes that haven't
been scratched, ain't worth a cert?."?
'i'hen we climbed over the fcr.ce with
a determination It take the law into
our o.vr. hands. We procured ha!; a
peck of corn and two dozen diminutive
fish-hooks. Fattening tlte hooks each
into a grai'.i cfcorn, we lied thin wire
to each hook. Then vs scattered tftc
who'e of i he corn on the radish lied
and iiiicd the ends of the '.vires to the
biggest sky-rocket wc could get. Tne
rocket sto<"J in a frame armut ten vrtrds
away from tilt hook*. That very morn
ing Chubb's. chickens came over and
instantly began 10 devour the corn. ?
We were ready, and as. soon as it was
evident that the hooks were all shal
lowed, we applied a match to that
rocker. It is regarded as probable that
no barnyard fowl ; that have live ! since
the da> when the morning stars i?r?t
