How About
No two people In the world have pre
cisely the same Idea as to what con
stitutes the highest enjoyment of
which they are capable Mrs. Jennings
had an ideal which did not appeal at
all to tho person who should have
been In the fullest sympathy with "her.
"Go to the picnic” No, I gross not!"
and tho energetic woman looked
scornfully at the acquaintance whe
had ventured to suggest such a mis
hap. "I don’t enjoy lugging my food
three or four miles Into the bush for
the sake of letting other folks criti
cize It. and get all eat up with gnat
flies Into the bargain. My notion of
pleasure Is something quite different."
"What Is your notion of pleasure?"
Inquired the visitor, curiously.
"Well, I expect to have about as
good a time this afternoon as ever I
need." said Mrs. Jennings, briskly
"We've got a load of Josiah Pond's el
egant stovewood coming this morning
and when my work's done this after
noon. I'm planning to take my crochet
work out into the shed, where it's cool
and shedy. and watch Ez saw and
split for a couple of hours. That's
what 1 like about us well as anything
1 can think of. 1 do admire to see
things going on!"—Youths Compan

Real Hard Luck Story.
Deacon Andrews heard a noise In
his cellar tother night about bedtime
and took a candle and went down to
•ee what the noise was. but a gust of
wind blowed out the candle when he
got down into the cellar and before
be could turn around to go back up
stairs after a match he knowed what
made the noise because he could
smell It —It was a skunk which had
got in through the winder which the
Deacon had left open. The next day
the Deacon burled his clothes and took
a bath, but anybody who has got a
■ose on their face can still tell that
the Deacon met up with a skunk
when he comes around close to you.—
