Ouo morning, when by mistake wo

relating their experience with various
"Why is it." asked tho Tool Man,
"that so many people get 'twisted' with
corkscrews and screwdrivers?''
"Nature of tho tool," suggested tho
Cutlery Man.
"Whatever the reason," continued tho
Tool Man, "I havo observed tho almost
universal confusion of a screwdriver
and eorkscrow; It is an everyday occur?
rence with ladies as well us men, only
a lady asks for a eorkscrow and a man
for :? Ecrewilrivor and then look at you
so Bcrpriscd."
?'Cr when thoy wont a 'lid lifter,'
said tho Stove Man, "niuo people out of
ten ask for a 'stovo lifter.' "
"Did you ever notice," remarked the
Cutlery Man, "how a man or a woman
express themselves when at a loss for a
'What's in a name anyway?" inter?
rupted tho Tool Man. "The woman who
asked for 'clear' tacks got what she
wanted as quickly as though she had ask?
ed for 'tinned' tucks. Such requests give
opportunities for mental gymnastics,
and thus relieve the lethargic tenden?
cies incident to continuous routine
v Without apparently obscrviug tho in
Verruptiou tho Cutlery Man continued:
\ "The other day a lady camo rustling
into the store. She was one e>r those
nervous, bustling little women, and slio
wanted a pair of 'twinckcrs.' Noticing
/ayblank look, she.-aid, 'Youknow, like
'this,' mnlcing a motion with her thumb
and forefinger that tit once suggested
'tweezers.' When a man wants an ott
ticloho can't name, hogots out a pencil,
tears the buck from An envelope and pro?
ceeds to give an 'idea.' "
"A lady gave mo sin idea," again re?
marked the Stove Man, "on selling gas
stoves. While showing them to her she
asked somoquestion to which I confessed
ignorance. To my surprise she said:
'Well, you may send me this one. I
asked Mr. -(naming a competitor)
that question, and he told me so much I
did not know what to believe, but I do

Eort of red Napoleon.
"Sitting Bull was not a real chief;
that is, he wasn't a war chief. Ho was
a medicine man, what the. Indians call
a medicine chief. But ho had great nat?
ural capacity as a commander. His sur

Vhave been called a great achievement if
ut white general had in some war per?
formed the feat. It is significant of In?

never toll tho story of tho fight at all;
wouldn't say a word about it, although
I suppose the question was put to him
