ENDED THE CHITLING FEAST.
When the Negroee Saw the Policemer They Fairly Flew. Th« other night two policemen were walking ulong Vine street when they met an old negro “grandma" coming out of a grocery store with her arms full of packages, says the Kansas City Star. "Must be goln' to have a feast al your house." said one of the offleers “(Join’ to have a chitlin’ suppah to morrow night." replied “grandma.’ *‘l)rap in an' git a bite." The next night the two offleers hap |M*ned to he passing the house where the old negro "mammy" lived. Sound* of high revelry floated out on the night air. “I.et’B go In and see what chitlings are," said ono of the offleers to the other. "I have heard of such edibles, but don’t know what they are like." "All right. I'll go you." The offleers knocked at the door. Instantly all became silent inside Then the door was opened a crack. The negroes Inside caught sight of th< blue clothes and brass buttons. “Good heavens," some one shouted. "It’s the big law." At once there was a wild scramble to get out. Some went out the bnck door, but most of them made a dive, ont the windows, taking sash. glaaa, aud all with them. When the offleers got Inside not a soul was there ex cept the old negro "grandma." and she was laughing until the tears ran down her faco. "What’s the matter with all youi guests?" asked one of the policemen. "Why. vounlls know them nlggnht believe* they halnt no Jestlce In the law." she answered. "Hut I'se mighty glad you come, cause my ole mao lialnt dnno a tap o'work foh a yeah flecn tellln* me 'bout his rnomatlz an a limpin’ an’ a groanin’ aroun’—could n’t scarcely move. Hut he was the fust man out o’ that wlndo*—Just flew like a d«*tih. Now he’s got to go tc work. He halnt got no mo’ roomatlr *en a rabbit." Oig Rats of Wheeling. The Pled Pl|>er of Ilamelln could reap a fortune were he to spend a day In this city, says a Wheeling (W. Va.l rorres|»ondent. Hats as large as good sited cats are swarming In the mills of this city, and In several the work men have threatened to walk out ua less the Invasion Is checked. Home of the tale* are wonderful to relate. In one factory, according to well authenticated report*, a rat was seen to take a tin pall In one of Its paws and trot away on the other three feet. Another deftly took tho lid off a pall In order to get at the goodies he knew were Inside. Another dragged a dinner basket by his tall, but was unable to get the basket down the rat hole, so he got bohlad a barrel to Investigate his plundor. The workmen declare they cannot frighten tho rodents away, for they show light. The nmnxlng stories of boldness on the part of the rats grow with each repetition, but there Is no question that the rats do eat the In- I Hirers’ dinners and that there Is Indig nation as a result. Horse Had Manner*. One of St. Johnsbury's best-known characters and one who has had name and fame perpetuated by having a likeness of himself and team printed on a colored post card. Is Orville Ijiw rence. formerly associated with the late Ilusscll Sage on Wall street In the early fifties, but being less fortunate than Mr. Sage he has become reduced In circumstances, and now drives around town In a more or less dilapi dated looking outfit, says a writer In the lloston Herald. Orville’s wit Is keen and he always has an answer ready for any of his friends who attempted to chaff him. One day Orville appeared driving a horse which Interfered badly, nnd. like Its driver, had evidently seen bet ter days. A prominent business man of the place accosted Orville with the re mnrk: "Say Orville, your horse seems to Interfere some!" to which Orville promptly replied: "He ain’t Interfer ing with your business. Is he?" Rigors of Alpino Winter. The situation In Switzerland, owing to snowstorms, is much worse than Is re real ed by the scant telegrams leav ing the country. The state of things has rarely been so bad at this time of year. The uplnnds already lie two yards deep under snow, and tho mountain villages of Simplon and other villages arc absolutely cut off from the rest of the country. An attempt has been made in the legislature to Induce the government to keep these passes open all tho year, but the cost was declared to be prohibitory. From Ilerne In the beginning of the week several diligences were long overdue, and their arrival was await ed with anxiety. A number of peas ants who hnd gone with cattle from the valleys to the uplands had also been caught, nnd were quite unable to descend, while efforts to reach them involved much danger. Why He Raged. Hhe rose from the great, soft snow heap. "Don’t make n scene, dear." she ex postulated.
