"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

Accordingly when

a

'Pay before you eat, monsieur.'
"'Oh. very well,' grumbled the Phil

the table reluctantly, and the waiter
squirted his soup back from the syr

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

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.

"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."
Soft Answer.
A New- Jersey teacher who had
been greatly annoyed by revelry in the
hotel where she had spent part of one
vacation look he precaution next time,
in writing to another hotel which had
been recommended lo her. to inquire
whether it had a bar. She received
the following reply:
"No. we haven't any bar. and if that
is the sort of woman you are we
don't want you. The plaeo for you is

to a window, she saw Harry down the
street manfully pulling on a rope, the
other end of which was tied around
the neck of a small dog. The pup was
resisting every step. Braced on all
fours, it was pulling back with every
ounce of Its small might and barking
as loudly as possible.
Presently Harry triumphantly en

"won't you let me keep this little
dog? It followed me home."—Judge.
Disappointment.
Disappointment will make us conver

It will chasten us and prepare us to

Saved the Smoke.
Brahms was always credited with
a frugal mind, and the following tale
is related of hi in. the late Erich Wolff
and a cigarette: The cigarette had
been offered by the former to the
latter, who received it with emotion
and placed it carefully in his waist
coat pocket. "Why do vou put the
cigarette away? Why not light it
now?" asked lira Inns, who had al
ready struck a match. "V cannot
smoke it." replied WolIf.
