You want money, we want butter and eggs and pay the highest price for them. Sharp & Donley. The Editor of the Tipton Mail, a straight Republican pa per, puts it correctly in these words: "Who cares if our school fund has been invested in certificates of indebtedness? They are ours and we can do as we please with them now and besides no one can steal them now. The school fund is now a permanent in vestment. He all the time inakin' trouble In de winter en de spring, But lissen ler hismammy now "He des de sweetest thing! 'Desweetes' thing dat ever Light on dis worl' below; He sweeter dan de roses, En he whiter dan de snow!" No matter fer de racket, De trouble what he bring; De house turn topsy-turvy ' He des de sweetes' thing!" En it a i 1 1 ' no ue ter tell 'iin Dat he tarryfyin' all, Make de mischief in de kitchen Ea a headache in de hall! Fer his mammy alius sayiti' In winter timeen spring; "Lawd bless his honey sweetness-He stil I de sweetes' thing!" "If you are suffering from in son ia," said the doctor to the paiieut. "just lie down prop yuur iiead on a pillow, and get some one to take hold of your throat thus pressing gently with the fingers on each side, and you'll soou tall asleep.'' But the next day, when lie asked the patient it he had fol lowed instructions, the latter replied, gloomily: "No, I didn't. There was no body at home but me an' the mother-in-law, an' I couldn't quite make up my mind to let her git that holt ou me!" Far across the meadows Meadows of delight, Hear the merry whistle Of old "Bobwhite!" P'rom the dewy grasses Fields of grain in sight, Keen an clear that whistle Of old "Bobwhite." From the rosy mornin' 'Til the day is dum, He is callin' callin' His sweatheart hometo him! A note from a rural jail to a friend on the outside reads. "Dear Bill My lawyer says ef my case is called this term I II be teetotally ruint: Can't you cripple the judge in some way or nuttier? Fer instance git him in a buggy, an' let the boss run away an' break bis leg? Anything so's he'll have ter lay up fer two weeks. I heerd he had two doctors at tendin' of him the other day, but ';they didu't kill, or even cripple him, fer I hear he's out ag'in. Bill, ol' boy, do me this one last favor: Fix the judge!" "When a pup has been born to point partridges there's no use trying to runja fox with him. I was a little uncertain about you at first, but I guess the Lord intended yon to hunt with the pack. Get the scent in your nostrils, and keep your nose to the ground, and don't worry too much about the endof the chase The fun of the thing's in the run, and not in the finish." 'Billy.' did you ever a painter going to 'I knew stayed they said: "I say. know of heaven?" "Yes,'' said "Billy" of one once." "And you think he there?" "Well, I did hear that tried to put him out.'' "And did they succeed?" "No according to latest ac counts they had not succeeded." "Why, how Is that?" "Well, sonny, it was this way: They couldn't rind a lawyer in the place to draw up the papers!" In Dr. John Hall's, time it was the custom in his church to use the old fashioned, simple hymns, and the singing was congregational, says the New York Times. On oue occasion the late Wil liam M. Evarts discovered E. Dalafield Smith, the well kuown lawyer and then corporation counsel of the city, singing with all his heart, and wins pered to his friend: ' Why, there is Smith singing 'I want to be an Angel ' I knew he wanted to be district attor ney, but I didn't know he want ed to be an angel." The remark was repeated to Mr. Smith and quick as a flash came the retort: "No, I have never mentioned the matter to Evarts, knowing that he never had no influence in that direction!'' Tom Ochiltree relates that while he was a representative from Texas, and returning to his home from Washington, he observed a large crowd at the station. When the train stop ped he stepped upon the plat form and started to address the crowd. He began: "Gentle men, I thank you .for this wel come home." "Welcome! Thunder!" .inter rupted a constituent.

You like for the preacher to come and stop over night; Why of course yoj do, and that is quite right: Treat him well, give him water to wash, a comb to comb his head. But whatever you do don't put the preacher in the spare-bed. Talk about the church, thechil dren, and the neighbors, Talk about the preacher's fami ly or his labours Do your best for him call bless ings on bis head, But whatever you do don't put the preacher in the spare-bed. He expects to die some day and go strait to Heaven, But would rather stay a while to put in ihe leaven; He wants to live and labour, get happy and shout He expects to die, but don't want to go by the spare bed route.
