A certain saloon keeper had a rep-j tatlon of being the stingiest man lnl the village. One day a stranger hapj pened In and called for a drink ofl whisky. According to the custom aj bottle was placed before him. He filled his glass to the brim and drain ed It. The villagers, knowing that! the traditional drink was less than 1 half that quantity, looked on In amuse ment. The stranger threw down a dime and started out. “Come back, you, there!” yelled the proprietor. In a rage. “Here’s a nickel for you. I only charge half rate when 1 sell wholesale.” I The Cook Came Back. i Servants In the Sandwich Islands have a curious habit, says a writer, of calling their employers by their firßt name. Her’s, she adds, was al ways saying, “Yes. John,” to her hus band, and “Very well, Mary,” to her. 1 When we get a new cook I told my, husband to avoid calling me “Mary" so that the cook, not knowing my name, would have to say "missus” to 1 me. So John always called me sweet heart or "dearie,” never "Mary.” One day we had some officers to dinner, and I told them of the rule F had adopted an! added, "By this ser vant, at least, you won’t hear me call ed Mary.” Just then the new cook entered the room. He bowed and said to me, "Sweetheart, the dinner Is served." "What!” I stammered, aghast akhts familiarity. "Dinner Is served, dearie,” answer ed the new cook. Pointed Paragraphs. When the cats play, the mice get away. Friendship snd confidence are plants of slow growth. Usually a man Is a poor Judge of his own importance. A woman seldom eats it there Is anything else for her to do. Many a man can’t afford to dress well because his wife does. Love laughs at locksmiths, but It sometimes cries over spilled milk. Some men who boss their wives In public are-as meek as lambs at home. Too often it is the things we shouldn’t do that seems to make life worth living. ; The man who attempts to call a lo nian’s bluff must be looking for trou ble.
