THE ONLY COMPETITION.
Bob,” Jones, the eloquent southern evangelist, was condemning New Y or!*. “The only difference I can see be tween New York and hades/' said Rev erend Bob, "is that New York is sur rounded by water. “Why, even in your-Kew York of fices you don't work. Look at your offices—crowds of young men in pink silk hose, crowds of young women in Jow-cut and transparent blouses. “I said in a New York office the o;her day: “‘ls there much competition here? “A pretty stenographer, swinging her foot in and out of her slashed skirt, laughed and answered merrily: “ ‘Oh, yes, there’s lots of competi tion —between the office mirror and the office clock.’ *’ —St. Louis Globe- Democrat. An Encouraging Sign. “Cheer up, old boy; you’re going to vm out all right/’ “Do you really think so?’’ “I am sure of it. Just keep going.” “What makes you feel so sure that I can succeed?” “All the wiseacres in town are pre dicting your failure.” SAD FATE. WooCen Soldier—Confound it, that Infernal spider has spun his web all over me, and I can’t get away to join my regiment Proof Absolute. “Do I believe In platonic love?" The question with humor is rife. If you doubt there’s such a thing Just look at husband and wife. Sunday Papers. “Hubby,” she chirped, “did the allies win this world's series 1 see so much about in the papers?” “No, my dear, you're a trifle mixed. The allies are fighting in Europe.” "And whom are they fighting, the Athletics?” “Here,” said the goaded man, “you gimme that sporting sheet and you take the society section.” No Ragtime There. “Suppose 1 buy a bale of cotton,” said Mr. Crosslots, cautiously. “Why, it’ll take up as much room as a piano.” “Think of the advantage! No ama teur musician is going to sit ‘down in front of a bale of cotton and try to play and sing.” The Appointment. The two men were playing billiards. “I have only ten minutes more,” waid the first one. “It is nine minutes after five.” “Got an appointment?” “Yes, my wife promised to meet me at three.” Didn’t Apply. “I believe in the motto: ‘Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today/ ” “Pay me that five dollars, then.” “The rule doesn’t apply; that’s some thing I can t do today.” SURE THING.

Meat From Fat Animals Better Than Than From Poor—Proportion of Salt Is a Highly Impor tant Matter. The pieces commonly used for corn ing are the plate, rump, cross ribs and brisket, or in other words the cheaper cuts of meat. The loin, ribs and other fancy cuts are more often used fresh, and since there is more or less waste of nutrients in corning, this is well. The pieces for corning should be cut into convenient-sized joints, say, five or six inches square. It should be the aim to cut them all about the same thickness so that they will make an even layer in the ba.'rel. Meat from fat animals makes choicer corned beef than that from poor animals. When the meat is thor oughly cooled it should be corned as soon as possible, as any decay in the meat is likely to spoil the brine during the corning process. Under no cir cumstances should the meat be brined while it is frozen. Weigh out the meat and allow eight pounds of salt to each 100 pounds; sprinkle a layer of salt one-quarter of an inch in depth over the bottom of the barrel; pack in as closely as pos sible the cuts of meat, making a layer five or six inches in thickness; then put on a layer of salt, following that with another layer of meat; repeat until the meat and salt have all been packed in the barrel, care being used to reserve salt enough for a good layer over the top. After the package has stood over-night, add for every 100 pounds of meat, four pounds of sugar, two ounces of baking soda and four ounces of saltpeter dissolved in a gal lon of tepid water. Three gallons more water should be sufficient to cover this quantity. In case more or ! less than 100 pounds of meat is to be corned, make the brine in the propor tion given. A loose board cover, weighted down with a heavy* stone or piece of iron, should be put on the meat to keep all of it under the brine In case any should project, rust would start and the brine would spoil in a short time. It is not necessary to boil the brine except In warm weather. If the meat has been corned during the winter and must be kept into the summer season, it would be well to watch the brine closely during the spring, as it is more likely to spoil at that time than at any other season. If the brine appears to be ropy or does not drip freely from tk? finger when immersed and lifted, it should be turned oft and new brine added, alter carefully washing the meat. The sugar or molasses in the brine has a tendency to ferment, and, unless the brine is kept In a cool Place, there is sometimes trouble from this source. The meat should be kept in the brine twenty-eight to forty days to secure thorough corning.—Andrew j Boss, Agriculturist, University Farm ! St. Paul. ‘ 5 ... t h e ...

THE GXLPXX OBSERVER As is well known, the law cannot concern itself in any case before it with side issues. These are rigorously excluded. In a case in which a man was ac cused of forgery, a witness for the defense managed to say: “I know that the prisoner cannot write his own name.” “All .that is excluded,” said the judge. ‘The prisoner is not charged with writing his own name, but that of someone else.” “I want you to understand,” said the man of ardent local pride, “that Philadelphia is one of the greatest cities of the country. It is famous throughout the world. ’ “Of course it is, ’ replied the Massa chusetts man. I know all about Phil adelphia.
