TelegraJ " I hat is a finely ci we remarked to a well-, man of Macon, as he si stone at one of our i wreaths of smokei browned meerschauj "Yes," he replied,! me about $500 to gi ' nowso?" "Well, 1 kept a f for eight years of all tures, and as 1 have ncl what you might calf moral man, the account one." We know the methodic this bachelor, and hencel surprised at his statement. tion to tho itemizing of his expenses he had kept a full journal of his doings, and could tell how many headaches, how many days' sickness, how many times drunk; and thus it was an easy task to jot down at the end oT the day how much whisky he had drank or how many ounce of tobacco he had smoked. No old maid is more preciso or systematic than he. "f stopped drinking two years ago, but have continued to smoke. And up to the time I let up on whisky I found that I had smoked up 400 pounds of tobacco in this pipe. I smoked one pound a week, and at times, when troubled with neuralgia, I smoked four ounces a day, which was a pound and a quarter a week." "What did that tobacco cost you?" "Ten yearj ago Durham was ship ping his tobacco in barrels instead of bags, as at preaent, and I paid $1 per pound to 75 cents, and GO cents, but averaging tho price at 75 cents, the 400 pounds cost me $300 for the eight yoars, or $37.50 per year." "How much whisky did you drink in the eight years?" "Sixteen barrels. I was paying $12 per week at a certain hotel in Florida, and the barkeeper has boasted on several occasions that for many and many a week 1 paid him $4 a day for whisky, gin, brandy, etc., whioh makes with board, just $40 a week. Now, sixteen barrels at $100 per barrel is just $1000, but that does not cover the cost to me, as I paid 25 cents a drink for lots of it. I calculate that my whisky for tho eight years cost me $2000, if not more." The nervous system of this gentle man does not seem to havo been im paired by this excessive use of tobac coand whisky. He holds that but few men could stand it. and when his hands commence to tremble he will cease to smoke. ' This is a remarkable case, and we need not point out the moral. It is apparent to all. Down on Ills .Luck. "John Chubber, alias 'the charm er,' charged with visiting a gambling house," read Clerk Hughes in the Police Court. "How is it that this case comes up at this lato hour? I thought all these gambling cases had been disposed of," said His Honor. "I'll tell you how it comes, your Honor," said tbo unfortunate Chub ber. "I was taken in with the rest of the gang on the night of the raid, and have been playing in hard luck ever since. They 'shuffled me up' with drunks, 'butted mo in' with the 'misdemeanors,' and 'snowed me out' with the 'potty larcenies,' and the result has been that I was overlooked and staid in tho 'box' until this morning, when I 'singled out' and demanded of the prison-keeper 'a square deal.' If the prison door keeper had kept his 'cases educated,' I'd 've 'won out' before this, instead of being 'whip-sawed.' " "Do vou Dlav a system, air. Chub ber?" querieo the Judge. "Yes sir. I frequently play 'em to 'double out' but l'vo been playing 'colors' lately, for they've had me locked up with a drunken coon, a Greaser horse-thief and a Chinese pipe-hitter." "It has been broadly hinted, Mr. Chubber, that you are a 'check guer rilla' and that your system consists of taking in 'sleepers.' That accounts for your no' '"ing taken out of 'hock' before. I think I will play you to'go through,' and make a turn of twenty days on you unless you chage in $40," aud the crest-fallen spoit was led below,muttering some thing about "a rough deal" and "the game being snaked from the out side." Exchange. Student, fresh from college, to conductor: "I wish to get on to tho penultimate car." Conductor: "We have no peanut car; you can get on the smoker."
