,V'McN fcOi-Ko I MARBLES..
Political Prisoners Amused Them
selves Like Schoolboys.
How the grave ojd Boer leaders
.played marbles like schoolboys is
told in Carl .l.:p(*c's new book on the
Tran,-van I. The oi.l gentlemen were
in prison for political reasons at the
.time. Mr. .leppe says: “The re
formers congreaated all day long in
the large central square of the pris
on. which pn- Mud a most animated
scene, in ever. J revrion you could
see men j\vc“- mg their relations,
friends or ■ . ors. Between tliose

“And it was re: u rka’dc too. as an
illustration of the fallacy of the pop
ular impression that the acquisition
of wealth is ‘all luck.’ that it was
Iho big capitalists who held all the
marbles when the and >ors of their
prison opened."

years, 'nns afTolder brother who has
recently been admitted jo member
ship iu the boy choir of a fashion
able Episcopal church. One day
Howard heard his mother taking his
father (o task because he had never
gone to hear his older son siiur.
Howard had frequently been taken
to services by his mother or liis
grandmother, and lie seemed to lie
rather proud of the fact that among
the but] diced hoys who marched in
at the beginning of the ceremonies
and out at the close was Palmer, his
“big brother.”
One Sunday morning Howard’s
father, somewhat conscience strick
en, mayhap, said, after getting up
from the breakfast table: “Well, I
think I’ll go to church to-day and
hear Palmer sing.”
Howard looked up at him very
gravely and said: “I would advise
you to go in the afternoon. They
don’t let the preacher have so much
to do, and it’s shorter then.”—

TTitp is an amusing talc from"
Germany about a man who thought
ho was a very clever financier, and
yet does not, seem to have had quite
as much sense ns a boy who knows
enough to go in when it rains:
A h|fge was being towed up the
Neekar from Mannheim to Heidel
berg, and a shoemaker on the tramp,
with a large, knapsack on his back,
panic up and asked the bargeman
how much he would charge him for
0 ride on the boat. The bargeman,
who was a hit of a wag, replied:
“Fifteep kreuzers; but if you help
null, only six.” The shoemaker
thought the matter over for a
niinute or two, and, calculating that
fie would save nine kreuzers by
helping to pull, threw his bag into
|hc boat and cheerfully tugged at
the rope all the way to Heidelberg,
tvhen he forked out the six kreuzers
gild shouldered his knapsack again.
Stoekson—One day last week old
frotrox bought a lot of those “Do-it-
Now” signs and hung ’em around
|he ollice.
Bond—How did the staff take it?
Stoekson—Almost unanimously.
The cashier skipped with $30,000,
the head bookkeeper eloped with the
private secretary, three clerks asked
for nnjnereaso of salary and the of
fice boy lit out to become a highway
man and got as far west as Pit’s

It Is In the Latter Part of May and
in June.
Fish bile best iii the latter part oi
May and in dime, according (o a
writer in the Outer's Book. This is
due to their mode of protecling
their spawning beds. In midsum
mer liny retire (o deeper water dur
ing which time fishing is very had.
After the first few cool nights ol
date slimmer they may he found
again among the weeds or on (lie
shallows. Incidentally, it mav he
• r
said that any Law which permits of
fishing before duly I is little pro
tection 10 the bass in North lake.
Them is little to he said in favor
of any particular part of the day.
It was never found that the early
morning or later afternoon hours
were he'll t than midday.
Easterly winds are host. The
northeasterly for pickerel and south
easterly for bass. While still weath
er and southwesterly winds are least
favorable. .
Times of low barometer, and. tfr
may conclude, of nnsettlei 1 whither,
arc much heller for fishij/fg than
periods of high haruuifofci'. Cloudy
weather favors pickerel, 1 ! while clear
weather is better for bass. Both
kinds considered, there i.y no ehoieo.
From this it would foAlow that a
good day for fishing would bo one
with an east wind, low karonuier,
clouds for pickerel and clefir if you
want bass. (!o out late in .May or in
early dime if yon want fish and in
early September if you are a Sports
man, and then shirt fishing i after
you have had a good break foist and
read the morning pppojv'if there is
one to lie had. and coupe in ala rea
sonable time in I lie/evening. Wheth
er these condili.i'ins would repeatedly
give us good,Wishing is the question.
The ffgmy6 shown in my tables
could havte been obtained only from
the i iti( , t,tliai gooil fishing did repeat
edly occur under just such condi
tions and with the opening of an- 1
other season it would he well to
make notes on just this point.
A young man who had become
much in forested in spiritualism was
called io tlie denililied of a very
dear relative.
On the night after her death,
wlien all hut the waieiiers had re
lived. lie began (0 wonder if the dead
one would return.
Just at that minute (here were
several quick, muffled (humps under
the table at which lie was writing.
He started, paled, and sat rigid. In
ten seconds a world of thoughts
whirled over him. Then the thump
ings were repeated, longer and loud
er. For a moment —which seemed
an age—lie was beside himself, ex
pecting (o see or hear he knew not
what. But nothing further hap
After a full minute of suspense he
gathered all his courage and. bend
ing down, looked under the table.
There, on another chair, he discov
ered the family eat, still scratching
her head, hut no longer striking the
table with her foot.—Hamer’s
Wifey—Let’s move farther up town
1 Hubby—Yes; and let’s move mother
up with him.
• “I suppose electricity will cven
, tually take the place of steam,” re
marked the mechanical chap,
j The man who lived in the apart

j has already taken the place of steam
in my radiators,” he remarked. “I’m
