A ,1' flfs :iflS -1 A Mountaineer's Mule By M. QUAD Copyright, 1912. by Associated Lit erary I'ress. "One day as 1 was slttlo' on my doali Step.' began the old possum bunter, wben asked for a story, "a stranger came along the road leudln' a mewl. It a No'tli Caroleeny mewl, and he looked like a likely beast. I was a-won -^derln' why the man was leadiu' the 4' 'mewl Instead of rldln' him when lie •topped and said: «, 'I'ni on my way to the Tennessee liver to Jump in and perish, and ll 2-Wil you this mewl powerful cheap if Fou want him.' "What do you want to perish for?' aeked. :vi 'Beltane I'm alone in the world and too good for it. I can't stand the wick edness around me, and I would go hence and have a harp and golden wings. This mewl Is the last thing I've ^«aKfot to get rid of, and If you fancy him tie's yours for $20.' "1 was in want of a mewl jest then," --«aid Zeb. "and after lookln' him over put down the money. It didn't take me long to diskiver that that mewl was ornery. All mewls are pizen mean, but this one .was a champion. If I tried to put a saddle on him he'd luy down in his trucks, and if 1 hitched him to a cart notliin' on alrth could make him pull a pound. He'd bite and he'd kick, and he went around lookln' for a fuss, in a week He come down off the mountain feelin' mo' cantankerous than ever, and that ornery mewl was waitin' for somethln' .to come along and begin a row. They got at it In no time. "Me and the old woman got up and looked out, and the two critters was "thoroughly enjoyln' themselves. They •f'' lilnlrln' hlMtV «lowln1 mad sqnealln', and It was better than a circus to watch 'em. "It was the same thing over the next sight and every night for a week or •o\ A b'ar ought to lick a mewl easy 'nuff, specially when he's a cantan kerous b'ar, but In this case he'd got hold of a mewl eo mean and obstinate that be wouldn't hev turned tall for all the b'ars In Tennessee. He was as •pry aa a cat, and the way he bit and kicked warmed up my heart. He got good many scratches in them con flicts, but he wouldn't run away or give in. One night, after we had seen Mm roll that b'ar over a dozen times without hurtln' him, the old woman •aid to me: 'Zeb, It ain't exactly a fair font. The mewl hain't got no shoes on, and his kicks don't hurt. Better gin him a decent show.' "It Btruck F-WWK *:-L 1 1 found he was no alrthly good. I club bed him till I was tired, but I couldn't pouud no sense into Ulm. One day 1 IJgot so mad that 1 was gwine to shoot him, but the old woman mixed in and •aid: '1 was jest a thlnkln', Zeb. Do you I remember that cantankerous ar that was around yere last fell?' j* 'Of co'se.' "'He'll likely come back agin this fall. Better leave him to the mewl if he comes." "1 give up tryln' to do anything 5 with the mewl, but he growed meaner I "'and meaner nil the time, and lie wasn't happy unless he was klckin' his heels agin the cabin donhs. "It got so the old woman dasn't step out, and I had to carry a club to keep him off. I'd had him six weeks and -, had wanted to shoot him every day, when one night that ar showed up. me that way, and the next 4ay I takes the critter up to the black amlth shop at the Cove and has sharp •hoes put on his feet He seemed to know what they were for, and be tidn't like it 'tail. He was ugly all the way home, and when night come he stood in the yard with his head down and 'peared to be thlnkln'. "The b'ar come down about 8 o'clock Mebbe he was madder than usual, fur he pitched right in at once. Me and the old woman both noticed that he 41dn't use hie heels 'tall, but jest bit end pawed, and we wondered at it. However, after Bgbtin' about half an hour the b'ar cornered him, and he had to' turn and let fly, and he killed that varmint as dead as a doah nail with 4M kick. The sharp calks of one of the shoes pierced the ar's skull, and ever he went and never got up ag'in. *1 was mighty tickled oyer it and went out to praise the mewl. He was •tändln' cina to the b'ar, and he never moved a foot for five minutes, jest stood and Rooked at me, through the Darkness in a sort of accnsin' why and ttwe fetched a gasp and fell down •"Hrt bin wounded in his vitals, •aid tts old woman as at» come out With lantern.

A joke depends almost entirely on its environment for appreciation. Lots of our jokes would fall mighty flat, 1 guess, in Zululand or Siberia, just the same as the funny stories of those countries would be a dead weight over here. Every country has its own particular brand oi hu mor, and to appreciate it to the full you must have been born in that country or lived there for many years. The Laplanders appear to UB to be a pretty solemn race, but I dart say they have their little jokes about the quality of the oil they sometimes have to drink and other subjects interesting to their mode of living. In every country, too, there is a certain percentage of the people who couldn't see a joke, however broad it might be. There are hu morously dull people in Ireland as well as humorously bright people in Scotland. Why, some time ago I received a letter from an Irishman saying that he had read all my books from cover to cover, and he considered they were the most se rious things ever published. He thought most of the stories would go fine if they were dramatized and put on the stage in the form of tragedies. As to the British sense of humor being less keen than the Ameri can, there's nothing in it. English men and women are just as quick to see a joke as we are, sometimes a good deal quicker, and 1 know 1 never want more appreciative audi ences than those 1 got in London. Why, they'd start laughing before 1 began, and when I'd come on to the platform and look at them in a solemn kind of way some of them would double up with merriment. Sometimes, however, anticipation is a bit awkward—as, for instance, when a humorous lecturer being un able to appear Iiis place was taken by a minister who wished to dis course on the evils of intemperance The audience, it appears, was not informed of the change (there might have been a riot), and when the good man came on the platform and stated that his subject would be the curse of rum those present went into convulsions of merriment. The more grave and solemn the lecturer became the more the people rolled on their scats in ecstasies of mirth until at last the astonished divine closed his book with a, bang and tired. Xow, 1 dare say in tfiat riisi the real lecturer would hardly have created so much amusement as did his substitute, which proves that a humorist with a reputation tins something of a pull over the nil known man, though the latter may really be funnier.—Mark Twain. Behind and Before. The Patience of the sergeant ma jor was well nigh exhausted. The recruits in the riding school were hopdless. It seemed as if none of them had ever had any previous acquaintance with a horse. One of them seemed, if possible, worse than the rest. He had a per sistent habit of turning his head round to have a look at the rear of his fiery steed. The sergeant major had already remonstrated with him, but to no avail. "Look here, ray son!" he roared. "Have you never seen a horse's tail before?" "No, sir,'' came the smart and prompt reply. "I have always seen it behind!"—London Answers. Whistler Saved Him. A certain famous English poet whose name the reader must be left to fill in for himself was once threat ened with expulsion from a swell London club for dancing a fandan go upon the silk hats of other mem bers. James A. McNeill Whistler, however, interposed and saved him with his eloquence. One man of genius, Mr. Whistler urged, was worth any number of silk hats, see ing that silk hats could be replaced and men of genius could not. Then and not till then the irate commit tee reconsidered its decision and ac cepted the apology which was ten dered.—London Standard. y.., 4* Carried Tee Par. He had an invariable way of asking the wrong question or making the wiyng comment So it was when at a dinner party his neighbor, a lady, said to him: "I am a thorough believer, you know, Mr. Smith, that men's clothes should match their hair. A Weck betr eff man should wear black clothes brown haired man should weer brown dothes. Don't you think eof" "That may be," bungled Smith, "but suppose a man Is bald?"—Ladies' Home Journal.

One is water less, the other nothing but water. But they have their similarities nevertheless. Under the compulsion of a whirling wind particles of des ert sand and particles of sea water act very much alike. A terrifying illustration of this fact was afiord I ed to Mr. Warner Van Orden, who was traveling across China on mis sionary business. He relates his ex perienee in the New York Times: As we drew near a large town in a valley we left the green wheat fields behind and found ourselves on a quivering, fiery desert—not a house in sight, not a tree, only the yielding, treacherous, slippery sand. Suddenly there appeared on the ho rizon a deep yellowish cloud that ex tended rapidly from the northwest to the south. Our pack train, the donkey boys, everything about us, became tinged with its fulvous hue. Our guide, a great, hulking l: d, displayed consid erable nervousness, at which I was surprised, for one becomes inur ed to dust storms in this part of China. Each succeeding minute the wind increased in force. Great blasts of air drove the sharp sand against our faces until the tears be gan to wash their way down our cheeks. Now the yellow cloud in the west gradually became darker until it was transformed into the most omi nous blackness. It was moving to ward us with great rapidity. In stinctively we slipped from our beasts and crouched beside them. Mv animal was shaking like a leaf, too frightened even to whinny. The air was heavily charged with elec tricity. We tingled all over. In the twinklng of an eye, just as we expected to be buried in sand, the whole scene changed. The storm seized the great dark cloud as if with a mighty hand and twisted it round into a whirling column, twen ty yards in diameter, that stood for. a moment perfectly upright. Then, little by little, it leaned forward, and like a great specter it swept by us. passing so near that grains of sand flying off at a tangent struck us with incredible force. When a mile away it unwrapped its shroud and collapsed directly across our road. The donkey boy bent over, scooped up a handful of sand and tossed it to the dying wind. ZAU What was still. It was some time before we could speak. Then I asked the boy why he threw the sand. He replied in little more than a whisper that the sand spout was the most voracious of all the devils and that unless it was ap peased it might arise directly under us, hurling us into the air as a hound does a rabbit. 1 believe, had I been alone, I should have cast a little sand myself. Later, when we beheld the hundreds and hundreds of tons of sand piled up where tin» "spout" had fallen, I realized where in our real danger had been. Had the great mass fallen on us we should have been buried twenty feet deep. South Sea Island Customs, When a south sea island mother wishes to chastise her child she sel dom resorts to slapping, and slip pers, of course, she has none. In stead of using the forms of punish ment customary among civilized mothers she pulls the child's hair or bites some part of the body, gen erally the fleshy part of the arm. In wandering about the village one sees many children having on their bodies scars produced by wounds in flicted by their mothers' teeth. When a mother wishes to caress her child she deftly draws her thumb across its eyebrow or cheek or gen tly seizes its cheek between her teeth. The rubbing of noses is also a mark of affection among the Kingsmil! islanders, as it is among the Maoris of New Zealand. Puzzled Him. In the midst of a battle a former dtoquis of Towneend saw a drum »er killed by a cannon ball, which Mattered his brains in every direc tion. His eyes were at once fixed in the ghastly object, which seem id to engross his thoughts. A su perior officer observing him sup posed he was intimidated at the tight and addressed him in a man ler to cheer his spirits. ''Oh," said the young marquis with calmness, atia n'ot frightened. I am puzzled 0 make out how any man with such quantity of brains ever came to be here!"
