HANDLING A RAT.
The Fat Gentleman Know All About It nnd
A boy employed in a Sixth avenue gro?
cery store :pearcd on the curb the other
morning with ? rat trap in hid hand, and
within the trap was a gray headed rodent
of good size, who evidently realized that
a crisis in his life was close at hand.
Twenty pc lestri-ms had their attention
arrested at mice, and three dogs came
running up and began barking and leap?
ing around, anxious for the moment when
the prisoner should he turned loose.
"Get out in the street!" shouted a voice.
"Give that rat a show I" added a second.
"Hold on till I git my dog!" piped a
"Say. huh," remarked a fat man with
a care, as lie pushed his way into the
crowd, "have you had much experience
with rats? There's only one way of hand?
ling 'eru rightly. Lot nie take the trap."
The hoy surrendered it with a very bad
grace, and the fat man handed his cane
to some one and held the trap high over
the .street. There were six or seven dogs
when the spring door was opened and
the rat didn't like the looks <>f things.
He ran down to the door, made a spring
and a twist, and for about two seconds
was seen on top of the trap. Then he
jumped to the fat man's right shoulder.
As he did so them was a yell and a fall?
ing back of the crowd; the dogs rushed
forward, and n.-xt instant dogs, fat man
and rat were all in a heap in the gutter.
Oil" dog got the rat and the others began
a free fight, and as they circled away
from t!i" spot the fat man got up, hold?
ing a ruined silk hat in his hand. He was
in a hurry to go, but before he could
leave a boy counted four dog bites on
his li'gs and recommended nitric acid and
a hot poker.
'?.My cane?" queried the fat man, as he
looked about, but cane and holder had
"Rats!" shouted threo or four of the
crowd, followed by a general laugh.
"Rats?yes?urn!" responded the fat
man. "There's only one way to handle
rats. Sorry I can't be with you always,
And he broke loose and steamed away
down the avenue.?New York Sun.
Both Hud Trait*.
"I have a friend here whom I want
to introduce you to,'' he said after they
had met and chatted a moment in the
Erie depot across the river.
'T beg to state in advance, however,
that he has one curious trait of char?
acter which you may expect to see de?
"All right. My friends contend that
I also have one."
The two were introduced, shook
hands, passed the usual talk, and after
four or live minutes number three sud?
"By the way, have you a pocket
"If you please."
lie pared his nails and talked for
three or four minutes longer, and then
put the knife in his pocket, and ex?
cused himself on the ground that he
must look after his baggage.
"That's his trait," whispered the
man who hud introduced him; "he's
taken your knife away with him.
Curious, isn't it?"
"Not half so curious as my trait!"
exclaimed the other, and striding after
the man he seized him by the shoulder,
whirled him around in a savage man?
ner, and said:
"Either return that knife or I'll lick
you out of your boots right here and
"Ah! beg pardon!" and the knife
was handed out so quickly that it
seemed to be red hot.?New York Sun.
A CoiigrrMsni?ti'? Duties.
A well known member of the
Georgia delegation in the house of
representatives went into the parlor
of the Metropolitan hotel while a hop
was going on, to look on a few min?
utes at the dancers. The enterprising
correspondent of a Georgia paper saw
him, and forthwith telegraphed the
fact that Mr. Blank was at the dance. A
few days later an eight page letter came
from an offended constituent, who in?
formed the congressman that he was
paid a big salary to come here and
work and not to go to dances. This is
a fact and not a romance, though such
a statement sounds more as if it be?
longed to the last instead of the pres
entcentury.?Cor. New York Tribune.
