Once upon a time two humorists dwelt In the same small town and both contributed to the Sunday Star.

As they were about to come to blows there ap peared on the scene a Good Samaritan and to him they appealed. "Which of us Is the funnier?" they asked. "Neith er!" was the prompt reply. "You are both as unfunny as wart hogs, and as tiresome as a trip across the Sahara!" Thereat they both set upon the gen tleman from Samaria and beat him full sore, and dwelt together in amity forever after. Moral: From this we should learn that while humorists delight in quar reling among themselves, they fre quently resent criticism from outsid ers.—Kansas City Star. Modern Greek. A stranger came Into our ofllce and graciously offered us some fruit which he said he purchased downstairs in the Greek grocery store. We asked him what Greek grocery, and he said the one right under us, in Holpos' place. We have been here some time and knew nobody of that name, and to satisfy our curiosity we went down stairs to have a look. Sure enough, there was what did look like "Holpos" on the end of the awning, at least there were the let ters "H O S" standing out in bold relief. We have learned since that it Is an abbreviation used by the store which when translated means "Highest quality, lowest prices, our standard." To the average read er it's all Greek and' would easily pass for a Hellenic name.—Qulncy Ledger.
