One of these occurred In small village In the upper part ot Duchess county. The clerk wa a bright, smart, active country lad who was equal to all emergencies. He found that a certain denizen of the place, named "Jake Urown," always found a convenient sitting on the counter In the farthw- part of the store near the cracker barrel and that when th clerk's eyes wero not upon him the old man's position allowed him to pil fer a number of biscuit. The clerk oon grew tired of this and ha ar ranged a good-tiied nesdl with a spring In a hole on tU counter undrt the olldoth covering, with a long string, which could be pulled at any point In the store. One extremely bit day In June the old man entered the store and took his position as iiuiml on top of the counter near the cracker barrel. The clerk was apparently on- gaged with a customer, but had his eye on old Jake, end when ne was reaching for the crackers tho string waa pulled. "Jake" went up In the air, lauding on his fret In the middle of the store. He felt for the object of attack, he wearing only overalls. Not being rewarded In his search, ae mounted the counter a ccond time and was about to make another at tempt at cracker raising when he felt another thrust which lifted blm In the air rgaln. He started for the attic above the store. Ills prolonged ab sence cued the clerk to go up to th attic, where he f Hind It aa hot aa an oven, to see what wss going on. He found tho old man distracted and near ly disrobed In the middle of the floor shaking his overalls furiously. The sight was laughable. The clerk asked him what wa the matter.
