Excellent natural pottery Is manu
factured by nature in the case of a cer
tain cactus. Woodpeckers are apt to
excavate nests in the trunk and
branches, and in order that it may
protect itself against these incursions
the plant -exudes a sticky juice,
which hardens, forming a woody lin
ing to the hole made by the birds.
Eventually the cactus dies and with
ars, but the wooden bowl remains.
Just a Little Exerciso.
The elevator conductor of a tall office
building, noticing that the colored jan
itor had ridden up with him several
times that morning, remarked: 'Sam.
this is the tifth time I have taken you
up, but you have not come down with
me.' "Well, you see." Sam replied.
"Ah been washiu' windows on de Sev
enth floor, and every now and ag'in
Ah misses mail hold and falls out."

Mrs. Dorkins sniffed tho air.
"John, she said, "that smells like a

"You ismell forty different kinds of
tobacco Maria," explained Mr. Dor

"THE QUALITY STORE."
If a thought be really great it may
live through many ages, stirring gen
eration after generation. The echo
of a great physical convulsion dies
quickly, but the echo of the words
of Confucius and Buddha, of Plato,
Seneca and Christ, still lives. The
voice of Socrates before his judges
kindles men whose ancestors were
savages when Socrates spoke.
Buildings decay, rivers run dry,
races decline, but a great thought
suffers from no impairment; it has
the gift of immortal youth and
strength. Orlando J. Smith.

Watches and Pickpockets.
"It's a peculiar thing." said the hem!

crease in popularity of cheap watches
the number of reports which we have
received of watches stolen by pick
pockets has diminished greatly. N
first class pickpocket tries for watches
any more. The same skill is required
to get away with a dollar watch as a
hundred dollar one, so when the dip

the accumulation of foulyjas in it pre

dropped a handsome wreath into it,
