THE PROGRESSIVE FARMER AUGUST 25, 18861

"I aim to tell the truth." "Yes,"
interrupted an acquaintance4 "but
you are a very bad shot."
"Ah," said Jehokus, taking his
friend's baby, "he has got his moth
er's eyes and my hair," he added,
as the infant prodigy grabbed him
by the foretop.
"What are chilled plows, papa?"
asked the little son of an agricultu
ral professor. "Oh, my son," was
the wise reply, "they are plows that
have stood out in the furrow all
Winter."
"My dear', said Mr. Ilenpeck to
his wife, after they had a few domes
tic remarks, "I wish you would do
as Mr. Gladstone has done." Bah,
with your Mr. Gladstone," she re
plied angrily. "What has Mr. Glad
stone done?" "He has made some
concessions in his home rule plan
for the sake of harmony."
A wag who is often merry over
his personal plainness tells this story
of himself: "I went to a chemist's
the other day for a dose of morphine
for a sick friend. The assistant ob
jected to give it to me without it pre
scription, evidently fearing that I
intended to commit suicide. 'Pshaw !'
said I, 'do I look like a man who
would kill himself?' Gazing stead
ily at me for a moment, he replied:
'I don't know. It seems to me if I
looked like you I should be greatly
tempted to kill myself.'"
A husband who had been out
shooting, but had not been success
ful, rather than return home empty
handed, stepped into a shop and
purchased a hare. "There, my
ducky," said he to his wife on reach
ing home, "you see I am not so awk
ward with the gun after all." "Let
me see." "Isn't he a fine fellow?"
"My dear," said his wife, as she car
ried the hare to her nostrils and
put it down with a grimace, "you
were quite right in killing him to
day; to-morrow it would have been
too late."
Dr. Holmes says that on "horse
back a man's system becomes clari
fied, because his liver goes up and
down like the handle of a churn."
Dr. Holmes is half right just about
half right. If he should ever get on
a native Dakota pony that had
inherited a bad disposition he would
be surprised to find himself climbing
up toward the blue vault of heaven
making frantic efforts to clutch his
liver, which would be going on
ahead of him like the handle of a
churn that had tried to agitate a
couple of gallons of nitroglycerine.
Estelline Bell.
Talking about busy men who
leave their homes early and get back
after dark and never see their chil
dren, a man of that sort was hurry
ing away one morning when he
found his little boy had got up before
him and was playing on the side
walk. He told the child to go in.
Child wouldn't go. Pa spanked him
and went to business. Child went
in howling. The mother said:
"What's the matter?" "Man hit
me," blubbered the youngster.
"What man?" "That man that
stays here on Sundays."
IN BEAUTOWN "SASSIETY
Mrs. Malaprop has been heard
from again. She reads the daily
newspapers, and takes great interest
in the news of the day. This, to a
caller, anent the recent troubles in
the Northwest: -
"I declare I don't know what the
country is coming to. The Knights
of labor, with their strikes, were
bad enough, but the Chicago social
ists and anchorites are positively
dreadful!"
"Now that you've got your ten
per cent, increase, John you must
be more liberal with your allowance
for household expenses. I want a
new teakettle and the boiler needs ".
"Can't afford it' Mollie; I am only
getting living wages now, and you
must wait until I can declare a divi
dend." "Thon you refuse to arbitrate?"
There's nothing to arbitrate. I
can't"
"Very well! I shall order a strike
at once. The kitchen fire shall be
drawn this noon, and if you dare
bring another woman into thishouse
to cook as much as a "kettledf mush
I'll smash' the cook stove to smith
ereens. Come, children,, we must
begin to boycott your father imme
diately." uoston Jtecora.
