A VavU WtXvr says that Whistler se riously rririt'ist'il one of Dannat's pic tures in a Paris art exhibition a week or pa ago. and tho next day a mutual friend mischievously introduced the two men. Meantime the censorious ex pressions f the former had been widely rt j)at'd. "(Jlad to meet you, Mr. Wiiirlh-r," Dannat is rejwrted as having said, particularly glad at this moment, us 1 h ur you have l?en running down my pictures ld:ind my back." "Yes," rtXurned the adept in the gentle art of making enemies; "I did say something rather harsh alxmt it, and it was behind your back, as I never iK'fore had the pleasure of seeing yon face to face. "Now that I do see you, I will do yon the favor to tell you the contribution you have sent to this salon has no busi ness here. This is a collection of pic tures, a tid you should be informed that half a dozen figures outlined on a wall do not constitute a picture. Something of intelligent composition, some attempt to repivjsent an idea, some respect for the truths of nature are prime requisites, and your flat drawing over there does not emlHMly any of these qnalities. Good morning, Mr. Dannat!' Mosquitoes That Never Lived. Some of the good people of Stratford, Conn., decided this year to drain about forty acres of marsh land and had the necessary ditches dng. Afterward some of the ditches were partially tilled up und the marsh water stagnated therein. On examination the water was found to !): a -a titrated solution of mosquito larva. The local scientists focused their powerful intellects and microscopes upoiva specimen of the water and fig ured it out that the prospective mos quito population had leen 20,XM),(XM) to the acre. As there were forty acres drained, the appalling fact is apparent that 800,000, 000 promising memWrsof the mosquito race, who might have done good and' telling work uion the Connecticut conn try boarders this year, were thus cut off before their youth had a chance to flower or even to sprout, or, to come down from metaphor to fact, to crack the shell of the embryotic state. Among other things, this little story teaches us to keep away this summer from un dxained marhhes. New York Tribune. With Almost Every Conceivable Style of Trimming to Match !

A maiden lady once had a fine talking bird, but, being subjected to headaches, she often put him in the kitchen. The cook objected and said to Polly, "You horrid thing, I wish you were dead." Polly soon learned this, and when his mistress got better and took him to her own room, he said, "You horrid thing. I wish you were dead." This shocked the delicate little lady. One day she met her rector, and, after he had inquired about her health, he said, "How is Polly?" Then she told him how Polly had af fected her nerves. The rector said: "Send him to spend a month with my bird. He may forget it." She immediately accepted his offer. In duo time Polly was sent home, and, as soon as his mistress went to the cage. Polly saluted her with: "You horrid thing, 1 wish you were dead. We beseech thee to hear us. good Lord!" New York Recorder. In an English Hallway Train.

J. W. C. Pogue brought in to Visalia this morning a remarkable freak of na ture in the shape of a potato vine upon which was growing potatoes in all stages of development, from the size of a mar ble to one ;'s large as tho averago Early Rose. The vino was discovered in Mr. Pogue'si lemon grove. The seed planted was of the Early Rose variety, and some of the potatoes will be planted out to see if they will reproduce. When the vine was pulled np a few small potatoes were found at the root, but on the vine there must have been a hundred. The only explanation Mr. Pogue can offer is that the potato must have thought it to be its duty to produce lemons, as is was sur rounded by that fruit, and that it made an honest effort in that direction.
