"When I lived in my young days in the Latin i|iiiirter," said Robert Henri, the painter, of New York, "1 had some friends from Philadelphia who used to frequent a tiny restaurant off the Bout' Mich". The rule at this restaurant, was pay before you ent. "The only dish served there was a thin but. very palatable broth, price 2 sons. "Well, a young Philadelphian took offense one day at the suspicion and even ignominy im- 'J plied in tile pay before you cat rule, and he re solved to break It. Accordingly when the waiter placed his great, deep bowl of soup be fore lilin lie fell to forthwith. 'Pay before you eat!' cried the waiter. "•Not II* the Phlladelphian re torted, taking a firm grip on Iiis bowl with both hands. like something flashed before him, and —presto i—Iiis bowl was empty. a phant waiter stood flourishing a vast syringe. 'Pay before you eat, monsieur.' "'Oh. very well,' grumbled the Phil adelphian, and he laid his 2 sous on the table reluctantly, and the waiter squirted his soup back from the syr inge into his bowl again." PAY BEFORE EAT. Found a Better Place. Mark Twain said: "Once when I was going out to visit some friends I told George, my negro servant, to lock the house and put the key under a certain stone near the steps. He agreed to do so. It was late at night when I re turned. I went to the stone under which the key was supposed to have been hidden. It was gone. I hunted around for about fifteen minutes, but still no key. Finally I went to George's bouse—he roomed outside—and rapped vigorously upon the door. A black head, which I had no difficulty in rec ognizing ae George's, popped out of an upstairs window. 'Where did you put that key, you black rascal I roared. '"Oh. massa,' answered George, I found a better place for it I' No Arks Needed. Up in a certain part of the Puget sound country the average rainfall In a year is 142 inches. It rains almost 'all the time. A missionary came auiong the Indians in that section and began preaching to them. lie held the in terest of the inhabitants until one day when lie preached to then) about the flood. He told them it rained forty days and forty nights and that the world was engulfed, describing the adventures of Noah and the Ark. He was much disused when his congregation rose, and left the place while he was yet telling about the flood. "What's the matter?" lw asked one of them. "Why did they all go out before I had finished my sermon?" "Huh!" said the Indian. "No be lieve! Rain here 100 days and 100 nights and no flood yet!"—Saturday Evening Poet. BANKED ALL HIS MONEY. Then Exploited His Views on the Use of a Check Book. During a linaiici stringency some years ago a .Swedish farmer in one of (lie middle west stales had sold some hugs on llie local market and upon receiving Iiis rherl in payment im mediately weni lo I he I'ical bunk to realize nil Iiis sale, pon presentment of the cherk ihe hanker said to him. l)o yon wish hv nmiifv mi |his check "Veil. I lank I ynsl so wli lake him," was the quick reply. "Von really want lie money?" all. I lank I lake I lie iiiun-o." "Hut do you really need Ihe money?" asked I lie hanker. "Veil, no 1 don't exae(ly need him, hut I tank I lake the nion-e." "Well." said I he hanker, "if you really want the money of course I will give it lo you. hut I thought if you did not need it perhaps you might open an account and deposit ilie money and then cheek against it as you needed it." "Ien veil I send my shecks here you will refuse to pay dem." "Oh. no. we won't. If you open the account we will pay your checks whenever they come in." This seemed assuring to the Swede, and he said. "Veil, if you pays my shecks. den I open de account." Ami the account was opened and passbook and check hook handed to the new customer. Half an hour later a close friend of the new depositor appeared at the cashier's window and presented a check signed by his friend for the full amount of the deposit, which was promptly paid by the hanker without comment. In about an hour I he Swede ap peared and, walking up to the cashier's window, handed the banker his check book minus only one check, with the remark. "Veil, I don't tank I needs him any more."
