This little incident has been told of Thomas Bone,
"the sailors' missionary:" I
"Seeing him approaching one day, one of a group X
of sailors announced his intention of having some fun.
He stepped forward and removed his hat, revealing a x
perfectly smooth crown, and asked: ;
'Can you tell me why my head is bald while all ;

suit and pulled his teeth before he had a chance
to seize me. It was the quickest and neatest bit of

A man's animosity toward a political opponent is j
sometimes so bitter that it does not cease even when f
the opponent is dead, says the Chicago News. A j
gentleman who had figured prominently in political
affairs suddenly came to the end of a long and useful j
life. On the day of the funeral one of the strongest " I
: political enemies of the deceased was asked; t
- "Are you going to attend Mr. 's funeral today?"
X "No," responded the distinguished gentleman, de-
liberately, "but I wish you to understand I heartily x
I approve of it."
