' In a town back in Vermont one time , " said a doctor , "a big. huskj lumberman entered the oilice of a den tist I knew and showed the doctor 11 bad tooth. The dentist decided thai the tooth should be pulled. " 'All risht/ ' said the lumberman. 'But listen now. If I tell you to stop , you stop pulling or I'll beat you up. ' "The dentist agreed , and the lumber man got in the chair. The dentist took hold of the tooth and began pulling. Almost immediately the lumberman yelled'Holdon ! ' "The dentist continued to pull. 'Hold oil ! ' yelled the lumberman. The dentist kept pulling , and the tooth came out. Then the lumberman jumped from the chair mad. " 'Why didn't you stop when I told you to ? ' he asked fiercely. " 'You didn't tell me to stop , ' said the dentist. ' "I did too ! I yelled "Hold on ! " twice. ' " 'Oh. ' said the dentist innocently , 'I thought you meant to keep hold of it. ' "The lumberman believed him and cooled off. " Denver Post. Agility of Hares and Rabbitc. Interesting figures on the relative agility of hares and rabbits are given in a volume by J. O. Jlillais. "When running at ease , " he says , "the length of the hare's stride is about four feet , but under conditions of fear its leaps extend to ten and twelve feet , while some authors claim that it can jump fen ditches twenty to twentjMive feet in width. Perpendicularly a hare can jump on to a five foot Avail , but seems to be nonplused by one about six feet. The stride of the rabbit is about two feet. When necessary it can make leaps of six or seven feet horizontally. About three feet is the highest that a rabbit can attain to even when helped by the asperities of a stone Avail. " Mr. Millais tells IIOAV rabbits swim when compelled to : "They swim Avith the head held as high as possible , Avliilc the hocks of the hind legs appear aboA-e the element at each stroke. The shoulders and front part of the body are buried beneath the Avater , Avhile the rump and tail are high and dry. " lyranny of Clothes. Place a man in a silk hat and frock coat and transport him to a farmyard. Agricultural pursuits may be the one passion of his life , but clad in these garments he feels in such surround ings miserable , out of place , essential ly urban. Clothe him , conversely , in llanuels or knickers and place him in a church , and it is utterly impossible for hiih to assume a fittingly devo tional frame of mind. Unlimited au tocracy itself cannot impose such tyr- auules on the subject. Civilization is the slave of its clothes , and there is no prospect of freedom. London Graphic. The Juice of the Grape. The Arabs say that when the first grapevine was planted the demon Iblis sacrificed a peacock on the spot where the plant Avas set. As soon as it be gan to sprout forth he sacrificed an ape over it. When the grapes began to appear he slaughtered a lion , and when these were ripe he offered up a pig : hence it is that he AVIO drinks wine feels at first as proud as a pea cock and becomes subsequently as tricksome as an ape. as bold as a lion and at length as stupid as a swine.

Among lawyers there is a saying that iu the trial of u case au attorney if light on facts must be heavy on la-w , The other day an attorney was prepar ing to leave his office in one of the big" office buildings to go to the courthouse to try a case. From the shelves of his library he had taken many large law books containing decisions and opin ions of higher courts. At intervals a boy went in\nd out of the door , and 2ach time he bore in his arms a stack Df the books , which he carried to an sxpress wagon that stood in the street below. The attorney was to use the books in the courtroom. Another law yer , who is of southern birth and who always addresses his friends with some army.title , watched the boy as he went ias'had'out carrying the law books. Then he dug his hands deep into his trousers pockets and said to the lawyer : "Well , Ali'll sweah , kunuel , you must have no case at all. " Kansas City rimes. Snow and Rain. The first man to whom it ever oc curred to find out how much rain was represented by a given fall of snow svas Alexander Brice of Kirknewton , ivho in March , 17Go , made a simple ex periment with the contents of a stone jug drivtii face downward into over ; ix inches of snow. What he learned Evas that a greater or less degree of iold or of wind when the snow falls md its "lying a longer or shorter time > n the ground" will occasion a differ- mce in the weight and in the quantity > f water produced , "but if , " he added , 'I may trust to the above trials , which L endeavored to perform with care , snow newly fallen , with a moderate ? ale of wind , freeig cold , will pro- luce a quantity of v.ater equal to que- : enth part of its bulk. " So that a fall ) f s&ow of ten inches represents a . ainfall of one inch. London Chroni- le . . - . - _ .
