In the other days, not so very long
ago either, when part of life in the
far west waa shooting Indians, a
young settler went oat there from
the east with 15-shot repeating
rifle that he was very expert in han
dling. The old chaps, who still car
ried muzxle loading smooth borea,
had their doubts about the new tan
gled gun. and they also had more or
lees fun with the youngster and were
always telling him he'd have no tise
for a thing like that when they got
in a fight with the Indiana some day.
A week later their stockade was
attacked by 50 bostiles, and the new
man with the new gun was not
found wanting.' By one lucky shot
the tenderfoot sent a ballet clean
through two Indians and dropped
them both. He gave a yell of triumph
and expected tbe men with ott would
join, but they didn't.
"Here, young feller." said an old
hunter, tapping him on the shoulder
with his ramrod, "don't tret extrav
agant like that any more. I want to
shoot a few of them redskins myself
when I get this gnn loaded, if yon

These blunders are made by the
most ignorant people, who, strange
to say, have the utmost confidence in
themselves, and very seldom think of
waiting to see how the various

ample of this I will relate an instance
of a guest at tbe licensed victuallers'
annual dinner. This man was a fair
type of an upstart He took his son p
as long as he could with a spoon, but
finally resorted to the simple expe
dient of drinking it from the plate,

to give it a flavor. London Tit-Bits.
The men of Portugal are as fond ot
show as are the women. Their fin
gers are nearly always loaded with
rings, and about their bodies, which
are often as round as the bowls of
their tobacco pipes, hang rhaina as
thick as ropes, from which are sus
pended bunches of trinkets.
The Portuguese dandy is very fond
of anything that will attract public
attention to his much esteemed per
son. Above bis snowy vest he wear
a cravat of gleaming colors, while in
his buttonhole is stuck a full blows
rose of inordinate size. I think I am
