Some years ago a woman was re
turning late at night from a social
function down at the lower end of the
Old Colony railroad. She took to the
track as the shortest way home, but in
crossing a small trestle above the coun
try road she made a misstep and in
falling broke her neck. The next day
her husband called on the superin
tendent, and while not appearing to be
very deeply grieved over his loss, yet
he felt that he was entitled to some
compensation for the untimely ending
of his wife.
"She was trespassing," replied the
superintendent, "which relieves the
company from all responsibility."
"I know it," replied the man, "but
she was a good woman about the
house, and I hardly know what 1 am
going to do without her."
"Well, on what basis will yon set

As She Viewed It.
The man was nearly out of breath.
When he could speak he said to the
wondering woman:
"I have just saved ycur husband
from a watery grave. He threw him
self into the river, and at the risk of
my own life I jumped in and saved
•^Well," she said, as she resumed her
ironing. "I always feared that you'd
try to be revenged for being refused
by me seven years ago, but I never
dreamed that your hate would lead
you to do such a tiling ns this."
Then she began singing a lullaby to
the bare legged little boy who was
rolling on the floor.—Exchange.
"Ever have jour hair singedV" asked
the barber of the luau who has a thin
thatching upon the top of his head.
"Occasionally. Once the furnace

Ivorv Soap is so pure that it can be used as often as necessary#
without causing chapping or roughness.
The superintendent nearly fell from
his seat. Upon recovering he paid the
man $12. which he charged to his own
account, as he felt that the experience
was well worth the price.—Boston
Got What He Called For.
The barroom of a well known hotel
was crowded with the thirsty the other
evening, and the overworked servers of
mixed drinks were beginning to grow
a bit testy, when the door swung open
and in walked one of those hardtacks
who grow fat on bad whisky.
"I want a drink of the pizenest liquor
in the lace," he said.
The bartender, weary from the con
coction of hundreds of high balls and
rickeys, languidly reached under the
counter, and, drawing out a bottle of
alcohol, ammonia and salt, used for
cleaning copper work, set it before the
human sponge, who poured himself a
liberal drink and gulped down the
nauseous stuff. His eyes bulged and a
half suppressed sputter escaped from
his lips, but he was game through and
"Thanks." he said, as he paid his
check. "I always did like this hotel.

YOKOHAMA, Sept. 9, via Victoria, B.
C., Sept. 21.—Interesting details are at
hand of the wrecking of the United
States transport Morgan City in the
Inland sea of Japan. It appears that it
came near being an appalling catas
trophe. Striking upon a reef at a
o'clock in the morning the ship re
mained fast until daylight, when by
adopting the expedient of putting the
men alternately from one sid to the
other the ship was rolled from the
rocks into deep water, where she at
once began to fill rapidly. She headed
for the island of Inoshima, .several
miles distant, sinking perceptibly with
every yard of p-ogress. She rtvirhed
the beach barely a minute before other
wise going under. The discipline of
the men was admirable and all were
