Mr. Finkelstein, Who Drew the Biack'
Ball, Had Been “Mercifully 8par«d
That Ahklety.”
In the hearing of many mutualise*
qualntancea Flnkelsteln had grossly
Insulted his old friend Kobellp. The
affair had got Into: the papers. .Altj

as men ol honor. A challenge ws^kPij

Finkelstein, the r offender, drew tjbiet
black balL The stipulation was that,1
he must make an end of his valuable'
existence within three days IHow
ever, on the fourth day who should
appear at the stock exchange at. hik
usual hour? Everybody guesses'll, of
course. Finkelstein! Finkelstein it
was. . *>'“•
His old friend Kobelin received him!
with open arms. “Thank heaven,” he 1
cried, "that you are still alive. You’ve
no idea what a frightful state of anx
iety I’ve endured all these three days
for fear you had shot yourself.”
"Well,” replied Finkelstein, coolly,
*T was mercifully spared that anxiety.”
Farm Hand Waa Something of i Pi
destrian, but Much Mora of
Stickler for Truth.
Bill Flint was a mate, inglorious
Edward Payson Weston, with a dash
of the Wandering Jew, and like Oeorge
Washington, his veracity batting aver
age was 1.000. He was a Massachu
setts farm hand, but about once in
every two or three years the wander
lust would hit him, he would pack up
his old knapsack, and disappear down
the dusty road, for three, six or some
times twelve months. His last disap
pearance had spanned 11 months to a
day. It was September when he re
turned, picked up a cutter, and began
to reap the corn. ' ^ *
"Whar you bin, Bill?” asked* ;thf
farmer, who always took him back.
"Bin to Floridy,” said Bill.
“Walk all the way?”
"No,” Bald. Bill, "I can't honestly
shy’s I did. You see, *bout ten mil*
south o’ Charleston a feller came afofcg
in a wagin an’ offered me a lift.
Couldn’t seem to see why I should
walk ef I didn’t have to, an’ was pret
ty insistent, like them Southerners
when they set out to be hospitable.
So I bad to climb in an' I rode with
him quite a spell—maybe two mile.”—.

Manufacture of Salt.
The salt works at Carrtckfergus tfi
Ireland, are making white salt fronw
rock salt in a new way. Rock sal|
from the mine is now‘fed into $ gafr
fired furnace,- where it melts, and' run!
by gravity into successive chambers.
In two of the chambers are three-inch
pipes, pierced with many tiny holes,
through which powerful Jets of Cbm>
pressed air are forced, in order" tb
agitate the molten salt, and thus to
make the slag and other lmpuritletf
sink to the bottom. It then passes
through a settling chamber, then to W*
reservoir, and finally into rotatlijK
pans, In which the salt, now-'-rapidijP’
cooling, encounters rakes tha£i*gitate1
it in such a way as to crystallize it**
in various grades and sizes, ready for
the market. The throe furnaces at
Carrickfergus produce 70 tons of re
fined salt in 24 hours. The process*
is continuous; the salt is deposited to
a finished state half an hour after if
leaves the mine.—Youth’s Companion
Flattering Offer to 8inger.
On one occasion while crossing the'
ocean David Bispham, in addition to
his contribution to the usual concert]
program given for the benefit of the
Sailors’ Widows and Children fund, of
fered to auction a program which had]
been autographed by all the disti
nguished people on board. He actually
secured *»uu ior ine program, wmcn.
was added to the receipts from tickets.
After it was all over a gentleman ap
proached Mr. Bispham and said, with
all due admiration and enthusiasm:^
“Say, I’m a New York auctioneer, and'
I want to tell you that was great work
you did tonight Here is my' card*!
and whenever you want to give up
singing you just come down to me and;
I’ll give you $10,600 a year to sell our i
Old Demand for Ships. 1
The demand for more ships was
heard in England as far back as the
sixteenth century. In 1677—11 years'
before the Armada—Dr. John Dee pub
lished his proposals for the establish
ment of a “petty navy royal.” It was j
to consist'of “three-score tall ships
or more, but in no case fewer; that I
henceforth, neither France, Denmark,'
Scotland, Spain nor any other coun
try dan have such liberty fQr lnvasioh*
or their mufupl conspiracies or aids,
any way transporting, to annoy the
blessed state of -our tranquillity, ah
either they have in times past vhad,
or else may have, whensoever< lhey
will forget or contemn the.observtig
of their sworn or pretended amity,”—
