Dak. IT WAS A CLOSE~SHAVE. Thought the Clerk Was Talking About Another Girl. The confidential clerk approached his boss and said: "I'd like to marry, air." "What!" exclaimed the employer. "I am surprised at your lack of judg ment, BJornes. You are too young to marry, and, besides, your salary is not sufficient to support a wife. You un derstand, of course, that I am talking for ycur own good. I hate to see an enterprising end ambitious young man like you throw himself away.*" "But the girl says she will econo mize, and "Nonsense! Don't believe her. Her father has probably given her extrava gant ideas, which she can't keep up it she marries you. I wouldn't advise any young man to marry. By the way, who is the young lady?" "Your daughter." "Take tor!" exclaimed the boss, and as the clerk closed the door, the old man muttered: "Gracious, that was a narrow escape." King of Gum Corner. 'Way up in Northern Oxford county. Me., along the route of the P. & R. P. railway at the entrance of the Range ley Lake region, is a prosperous little settlement known all over the state aa Gum Corner, says the Boston Globe. Byron is the township and the sta tion, but from the time A. O. Reed made the little village synonymous with spruce gum it became Gum Cor ner, and the shrewd Yankee the gum king, and such tfcpy remain to-day. Mr. Reed collected gum for twenty five years. For three or four years previously he dug the gum himself, bringing in from fifty to seventy-five younds every good day. On rainy days he cleaned and marketed gum. "After three years," said Mr. Reed, '1 struck in on a larger scale and bought gum of other diggers as far north as the Magalloway region. They brought it along in four-horse loads. For twenty-five years I bought on an average of forty tons a year. The clean lumps I sold around the state for fl a pound the rough gum I shipped to Elgin, 111., where I received 50 cents a pound for it. success? Well, it built the little house you see under the elms here, and I look pretty healthy myself." Shelly at Eton. Among the more celebrated of the names of Eton in my time I have a slight recollection of Shelley. He was captain of the Oppidans, I think, in 1810—a fair lad, who, I think, boarded at Bethel's. I remember many odd freaks record ed of him. He bought a large brass cannon at an auction in Windsor and harnessed many lower boys to draw it down into college. It was captured, I think, by one of the tutors and kept till the holidays at Hexter's. I also remember that Shelley wroto a small book in one volume in which he collected together all the horrors he could think of. It was a farrago of what in those days we called pamph lets, little thin sixpenny books of ro mance, which the boys in want of reading used to purchase. I quite fop get the name of this work of Shelley's, nor have I ever met with it in after life.—Nineteenth Century. Water as a Nerve Food. "If nervous women would only drink more water they would not be so nerv ous," remarked a trained nurse the other day. "Nearly every physician will recom mend a woman who is suffering from nervous prostration or nervous exhaus tion to drink lotd of water between rreal3, but many women who do not come under a doctor's care would feel better and look better if they would drink, say, a quart of water in the course of the day. Water Is a nerve food. It has a distinctly soothing ef fect when sipped gradually, as one can test for herself." The Euphagists. Euphagists are a dietetic sect who refuse to take eating seriously. They purpose to eat, drink and be merry— especially be merry. It is the royal road to health and long life. The Lon don News suggests that "If a careless attendant spills hot soup down-the back of his neck- the euphagist tem Vorarily stops eupbaging. that is all.' Held Up.

Officer Martin, who had been on the force for six months or store, was dif ferent in some respects from many of his fellow policemen. He never went In a saloon, never swore, never idled and never shirked. He was also un communcative, and a suspicion that all was not right and that he had something to conces.. was aroused. The chief called him into his private office one morning. "Officer Martin," he said, "so ter as I know, you are one of the best men on the payroll, but there are rumors that you are not altogether what you seem to be, and that ere is a chapter In your life that none of us' know* anything about." "I don't deny it," sir," responded the policeman, somewhat surprised, but not abashed. "You confess it, then?" "Yes, sir." "Would you mind telling me what it Is in confidence?" "Not at all, sir," said Officer Martin. "I sing in a suburban church choir on Sunday."—New York World. Monitor With Guns. One of our public teachers relates very amusing incident that occurred recently in one of our well known schools in the center of the city. It seems that for several days the pupils had been unusually prompt In return ing after recess. No boy was late or tardy, and, in fact, the boys were as good as though Christmas were only few days off. The principal was con gratulating herself upon having the best school in the city, when one day \he mother of one of the scholars com plained to the principal that the moni tor of the class was terriorizing the pupils with a pistol and frightening them nearly to death. The principal '.hereupon investigated the matter and "ound that the monitor had gained pos session of his father's revolver, and, true western style, "held up" the ooys and compelled them to fall in line ind do as he commanded. While he lid it with good intent and with a sincere desire to help his teacher, ret she was sorrowfully compelled to censure the boy and discipline him tor his conduct.—Chicago Inter-Ocean. Women in Government Employ. An official of the government print ng office war talking the other even ng of the personnel of the women employed in tie big printery. He said the civil service rules went into effect it the office just ten years ago. The •esult has been to' give the office a much better class of women workers ihan those who were appointed prior 0 that time. "The women in the folding rooms he bindery and the press room now," laid the official, "are largely of the educated class. Some of them are 'ormer school teachers, stenographers ind the like, and I will add they are 1 credit to the government service." The statement was added that it frequently happens that these workers the printing office are transferred Important clerical positions in the ther departments by reason of the llgh percentage they make in com etitive examinations.—Washington Star. Sarcasm. Many years since, Jed Hollls had a itore in Cornish, N. H., which was rery prosperous and a great rendez vous for story-tellers. One wild win ©r afternoon, when there was a luorum present, and each had vied vith the others in romances, "Ldsh" Skinner had the floor and said: "One time I was out a-hunting In Sroydon woods, and I see an all-fired ig squirrel. Well, I'd tramped all lay and hadn't found no game, so I list follered and follered till I treed lim in a big dead hemlock. Then let her drive—bang. I shot him and ore him all to bits." Ben Miller spoke up and said: "Did rou kill him?" London's Biggest Landlord. The London county council is one of he largest proprietors of working lass houses in the kingdom.

In ither words, the county council is bo oming the landlord of houses cap* ible of accommodating''a population tearly equal to that of Brighton. In Convict Uniform.
