Caa Beal Happiness Be Found In This
World?
Tie orator bronjrht inwaathe Hon.
Lira x Johnson, of Cynthiana, Ky.
He was a very short, corpulent man,
dressed in a check suit, and was entirely
bald leaded. At first sight he rather
disai-pointed the audience, but he had
scarcely opened his mouth when every
body became interested. It was evident
that he was cool and collected. He took
seventeen large swallows of water from
the ije pitcher, stepped on a cockroach
which was running across the platform
fort le president's leg, and softly began:
De man who 'spects to find real happi
ness in dis world am sartin to be disap
pointed. De world wasn't made fur dat
purpaee, an man wasn't built dat way.
It w.ts intended dat we should simply
hev streaks of happiness mingled wid
streaks of sorrow, an it am entirely use
less to seek to change de laws of natur.
Teke de case of Samuel Shin, fur in
stance. Heiswalldnlnno-
a-feelin dat life ain't worth delivin an
aAe1
aai unenaa nung hisself wid a grape
vine twenty y'ars ago he would hev bin
better oft. Dat's a streak of sorrow.
Pnrty soon he finds a five dollar bill on
de si lewalk. Sudden agitation all over
the t all Dat's a streak of happiness.
Samuel at once braces up an is glad he
didn't hang hisself down dar in Alabama.
He U gwine long de street plannin what
hell do wid dat money an f eelin dat he'd
alius like to lib in dis woruld, when a
policeman obertakes him an raps him on
de ct kernut wid his club. More agita
tion. Dat five dollars belonged to de
officer, yo' see. It fluttered out o his
vest pocket while he was smilin at a
woman in de third story across de street
He drums on Samuel's head wid his lo
cust an takes dat money away. Dat's a
streak of sorrow agin for Brudder Shin,
an so it keeps goin all frew life. Cheers.
Way down Bebee is a-sittin in his cabin
home, continued the orator, an he's got
twoMfteo'ns and a sore heel. Boaf of
his dawgs am ailin, an one of his chill'n
has ;ot da croup. Sensation. De rent
am due, de flour bar'l am empty an he
hain't got but two cents in his pocket.
Dat's a streak of sorrow. Brudder
Bebea i3 a sort o' thinkin dat hell go
down to de Norf river an precipitate
hisself o.T de dock an fetch up in dat
better lanl, when Judge Cahoots drops
in. lEverybodv looks at the i
jedgc he am going to gib a birthday
parry, an ne nas come to ask Brudder
Bebe.j to lend him fo' caneseat cheers
and honor de party wid his presence.
Brudler Eebee goes ober dar an he eats
half of a large watermillyon, two can
taloupes, thrse dishes of ice cream an
two f assers of peaches an cream. Dat's
a stre ak of happiness. Cries of "Yum!"
"Yum!" and wild applause.
My frens, my time is limited, an I
can't speak no mo'. I simply say to yo',
doan Vpect to find happiness in chunks.
Doan 'spect to eber be real happy fur
ober two hours at a time. Ize obleegei
fur v i kindness an conrtiv- nn rtir Hia
meetin is ol er I'll show any of yo' free
00 cot now to worn yo rears backwards
an fo ds till yo" kin frow yer hat off yer
head. New York World.
Two Ilrlgbt Children.
Onu of my friends is the happy father
of a five-year-old girl who is as auto
cratic as the ctar himself. Nothing
pleas- h-.;r better than to order papa to
take her out for a walk and a long
walk too. On a recent Sunday he de
termined to give her all the walk she
want Ml. It was a long promenade, and
it tot k in a g-nxlly portion of the East
End. It was so long, in fact, that after
a whi'c poor papa could scarcely drag
his wearied limbs alontr. He was glad
enoui to come within sight of his home
again, but just as they reached it the lit
tle mud cried out, "Oh, papa, we
must'et go in just yet; let's walk up and
down awhile and get rested!"
"What did that l;idy have the screen
across one end of the rooin for, ma?"
asked little Johnny, who had been mak
ing a call with his mother.
"I Kuppose she had something there
she didn't want seen," replied his mother.
"Aad was that the reason, ma, that
when you thought she wasn't looking
you peeped behind itr Cincinnati En

Too Much.
I've been captnred by de HottentoU
And slanchtered full a score,

I have faced all kinds er peril
And have not been frightened yet.
But I want to bell yer, stranger.
