A Glazier's 'Trick That Pro
red Futile la
the Long Ban.
A small boy had thrown a stone
through the basement window, and
the landlady sent the maid of all
work around the corner to a gla
cier's. There was only one corner
of the sheet of glass broken, but it
would have been unsafe to leav#it
"It will be $2," thei, glazier said,'
looking the job over, and after a lit
tle wrangling 'over the price the
landlady told him to go ahead.
When he was gone for the glass,
the landlady said to the girl:
"You see, I can get a'glass for
that picture in the dining room out
of this and will be just that much
There was a good deal of "clutter
ing up" about the work, but it was
done finally, the glazier was paid
and went. Ten minutes later the
landlady went out to look at the
piece of glass that was left, but it
was gone.
He took 'it with him," the girl
"Well, go right over there and
bring it back," she said tartly.
You knew I wanted'the glass."
The girl was gone five minutes,
and she returned without it.
"He won't give it up. He says ac
cording to the rules of the shop-Ehat
it belongs to him."
"The rules of the shop indeed I
I'll show him," and she put on her
bonnet with a little toss which look
ed bad for the glazier.
But be stood his ground unex
pectedly. There was the glass on
the counter, but he stood close over
it, protesting:
"It vhas der rules of der shop."
"Well,*you'll see when my hus
band comes home," she said at last,
backing out of the door, but the
glazier only smiled.
Sure enough, the husband was
bent on having the glass.
"Come over and point it out to
me, and I'll- fix him," he said dog
The glazier saw them coming,
but he was defiant.
"See here," began the husband,
you've stolen a piece of window
glass out of my house"—
"No, no. It vhas der rules of
"Hang the rules! Where is the
glass?" turning to his wife. She
pointed to it lying under a work
bench. The husband reached for it
and started out of the shop.
In an instant the proprietor waa
on the sidewalk, dancing on one leg,
waving his arms and shouting:
"Bolice, bolicel"
Bather than, face the trouble the
man laid the glass down, and the
two left the shop, walking briskly
till they turned a corner...
"But'just wait'" muttered the lit
tle woman.
Two days later there was- a ring
at the bell which the landlady an
swered. A boy in a tradesman's
blouse was hesitating in the door.
"Mr. Glazingstein wants the ham
mer he left here the other day."
"Oh, no," chuckled the landlady
it's the rules of the shop that I
never give hammers back when
they are left here."
The boy looked abashed.
"I'll tell you," said the landlady.
'You go back and say that when
he returns my glass we'll talk about
the hammer."
The boy went, and in a few min
utes he came back with the glass.
"That's more like it," said the
landlady, taking the pane from him.
Now go back and tell that old skin
flint that I haven't seen'his old ham
mer I"
And she hadn't, for a little later
she saw the boy come out of a house
on the opposite side, of the street
carrying the missing article.
But the glass is now in a'picture
frame on her dining room wall.—

The Motion* Yerslon of the Vunooa Old
Testament Narrative.
The Koran tells us that "Yumis
(Jonas) was of those who 'were sent'
when he fled into the loaded ship,
end they oast lots among tliein-"
selves, and he was condemned, and
the fish swallowed him, for he was
worthy of blame."—Chapter xxxvii.
The Moslems have their ancient
Scriptures, giving & history of the
world from Adam down through
their great prophet Ibrahim (Ahra
ham).- Professor Edwin Johnson of
London undertakes to prove in his
"Rise of Christendom," 1892, that
the Hebrew Bible is 1C0- years youn
ger than the Moslem chronicle of Ai
Tabani, which was redacted about
A. D. 900, 'and that the New Testa
ment was composed after A. D. 12C0.
According to the Moslem Scrip
tures Jonab, a prophet of the chil
dren of Israel, was sent to a city of
the territory of Moussoul, which
embraced Antioch and several other
towns, all given to idolatry. The
people refused to believe, and Allah
threatened a chastisement should
they not repent. On the day ap
pointed Jonas departed, and Allah
Bent a red cloud filled with fire,
which hovered over the city in the
night. The king and the people
gathered together and the king said.
"Seek for Jonas that we may believe
Allah, for what he has told us is the
When Jonas, heard that thoy
sought him, he said in anger, "Why
do they not believe this day I" So
he would not return.
The king caused all ihe people to
go forth out of the city, with their
quadrupeds, and birda There they
covered themselves with dust, end
the king said: "O Lord, though
Jonas, thy prophet, be gone, we
lose not confidence in thee. We be
lieve on thee, Allah, and thy proph
et." The "rayers and so"bs of the
multitude aiade the angels in heav
en weep, and Allah pardoned the
But Jonas was not there. He had
embarked on a passing vessel and
was far out at sea. Allah caused a
big fish to stop the vessel. The crew
prayed and wept and prepared for
death. Then%Jonas knew that he
had committed a sin, and he said to
the sailors: "It is I whom the fisL
desires. Cast me to- it.'' When they
knew he was a prophet of Allah
they refused to do it, but they cast
lots, and the lot fell on Jonas. Them
he cast himself into the sea and waa
swallowed by the fish. This species
of fish," says the Koran, "has a
raised back like the roof of a house
and to this day is held sacred from
pursuit." The Greek word both in
Matthew and the Septuagii^t is ke
tos, properly translated "whale,"
but there are only two or three
small species of cetaceans in the
Mediterranean sea. The description'
in the Koran answers to a porpoisu.
After 40 days Jonas was inspired
with the thought of prayer. Allah
Bent an angel to lead the fish ashore
at the place where Jonas had em
barked. Then he waB cast up, r.B
weak as a newborn child. Allah
inspired a doe to como and give hiia
milk. The sun scorched his body,
and Allah inspired a gourd to spring
up around a dry trunk and put
forth leaves, which gave shade to
Jonaa Fo- 40 days was he suckled
by the doe until he was able to rise
and pray.
At last the gourd withered, and
Jonas was aggrieved. Then Allah
reproved him for not being grieved
for the many thousands of people
he. had deserted.
Jonas was Bent anew to the now
repentant people. He met a shep
herd, who told him they were seek
ing him. He bade the Bhepherd go
and tell them he was fiere. "Where
shalt thou be?" said the shepherd.
"In this mountain," answered Jo
naa "Who will show me the road
to thee)" said the shepherd. "This
she goat," answered Jonas. "Who
will bear witness that I have seen
theel" said the shepherd "Thy
dog," answered Jonas. Then the
shepherd departed, And Jpnas enter
ed the mountain.
The shepher4 wpnt and told the
king and people, and they came
forth to find Jonas. "Bear witness
for me," said the shepherd to bis

It is not difficult t? see how it
might be extremely inconvenient,
if not impossible, for a conductor
change $5 notes for 5 cent fares.
The conductor starts out with but
small amount of change, and it
might occur that a number of per
sons had no small bills.
Some years ago a conductor oil
street railroad in a western city,
who-was understood as not particu
larly obliging, was made the victim
of a practical joke that nearly upset
him. A couple of young women
boarded a car on their way down
town. They really had no change
and nothing smaller than $5. They
offered it, and the conductor rather
rudely declined to take it. There
was no law or rule limiting the
omovuil He was to make change for,
so the girls insisted, and the wa
had no alternative but to stop his
car at a corner and go into a store
and get the change. He was delayed
and came brick very angry, in con
sequence of which he made some
remarks not strictly in accordance
with the usages of polite society,
ending up with the declaration that
if those girls came on his car again
with a $5 note to change he would
put them off. A few days afterward
a demure looking damsel boarded
his'car ut along distance up town.
She offered a $5 bill with an apolo
gy, saying it was the smallest sh6
had and would he please ohange it
He attempted to do so and succeeded
only after all the other passengers
had paid in thoir fares.
A few blocks lower down, on came
another miss with another 5 note,
This the man was obliged to get
change at a store near by where he
always stopped to water his horses.
Some distance farther this expe
rience was repeated, untilj before
the shopping district was reached,
seven $5 bills had been presented by

appearances would never- so much
as permit butter to melt in their
mouths. Long before No. 7 made
her appearance the passengers had
caught the little game, and as the
conductor was known to be of an ex
ceedingly irascible disposition they
had their own fun over it. The girls
did not even look at one another,
nor did they give a single bint that
they were acquainted.
It is doubtless incidents of this
sort that have made the restriction

The court of appoals of the city of
New York, in the matter of making
change-on street railroads, has de
cided that conductors nfced not
change $5 in order.to collect a single
fare. All street railroad companies*
are required to have a rule to the
effect that the conductors furnish
change to the amount of $2. Beyond
this they need not: go unless they
choose. If the conductor demands
{are and the passenger has nothing
less than $5 with which to pay it,
the conductor is upheld by law in
stopping the oar and requesting the
passenger to get off. Failing to do
this, he can use reasonable force in
ejecting the delinquent. Actions for
assault and battery whibh under
almost any other circumstances
would hold are not admitted in
cases like'this in New York state.

known as the indigo lobster. Durinj
the years 1890-1 the lobster men
New London, Conn., caught five o]
these wonders, two of "them in tli

that variety are so exceedingly rar
that it is not known that more th
two of that kind had ever been ca'
