The New Villain.
The villain used to lie in wait
To nab some gentle maid,
What time the hero walked into
The trap that had been laid;
But now, the villain merely takes
A piece of pointed wire
And, while the maiden wrings her
hands,
He jabs the hero's tire.

Cheese 'Most Too Fur Gone.
The old Virginia darkey who has
been from the time he was 10 years
of age the dining room servant it
one of our aristocratic families is no
ted tor nis unesterneiaian manners.
And as for a waiter, cleaner, and
everything else for which a house
servant is wanted he is not equalled
by his latter-day brethren, whose
mam oceunation. if he has been to'l
sjliool and can read a little, is that of
a hotel waiter or a Pullman car por
ter. Having some company to tea one
night I remembered that two of my
friends were fond of Limherger
cheese. I bought a pound package
and took it home with me. On ar
rival old Uncle Isaac met me as us
ual with his accustomed salutation of
4-G ood tvenin", toss " I said to him:
"Uncle Isaac, you will find among
other things in that box a package of
cheese, and I want it on the table to
night." "All right, boss, I'll have
it." "Don't you forget it.' said I.
"Oh, no, suh; I ain't groi' fergit it. I
'II have it. sho'."
Now, Uncle Isaac had seen erery
kind of cheese in his life, but this was
his first experience with the limber
ger. W hen I took my company into the
dining room the old fellow was
st -Hiding near the table, with a long,
white apron on, and a waiter tucked
under his arm, ready to jump if any-
one looked toward him. Not seeing
the cheese I said to him quietly: "Un
cle Isaac, w here's the cheese?" With
a look of great disappointment, he
turned to my wife, a3 if to say,
"Please, marm, come to my rescue!''
but my wife only smiled. I repeated
my question then with more emphas
is. "Uncle Isaac, whare's the cheese?'
He came shulHinsr up to me side-
ways, and being too ponte to let the
. , 1.1 i,i t.
guests hear what he had to say,
whimpered softly in my ear, "Boss, it
was mos' too fur gone, an' I tiung it
away." Washirgton Post.
