This paltry earth and the law hung sky,
Like a little tent uround It.
Too cramped I find to feel at home,
Too cramped I always found It,
Since I was evor a vagabond,
A vagrant-foot and rover,
Oh, give me the width of the skies to roam
When my earthly days are over!
Let me out where worlds the milestones
Where the unresting stars walk my way
Out, out, where a man has elbow room
To travol his old time hlghwayl
And when the Journey Is done God grant
That one lone Inn I And me
Where I may enter and greet but her
And close the door behind me!

"Talking abuut rainy weather," said
tho westerner, "I remember once out
iu Indianapolis meeting a farmer who
took tho must cheerful view of damp
ness of anybody I oversaw. I asked him
if they bad had much rain down ou the
Wabash that spring.
'"Well, it has been a little damp,' he
answered. 'The day before I loft home
I had to hang up 24 of my ducks. They
had got so water soaked that they
couldn't swim any longer. I planted
my ooru iu two feet of water, aud I
dou't oxpeotover iiO bushels to the acre.
My wheat is looking pretty well, but
the sturgeon and cattish have damaged
It considerably. There was about IS
minutes' sunshine one day, aud I
thought I would plant my potatoes, so
I loadod them on a scow aud anchored

STROKES OF A RAZOR.
Bow Many Do Yon Suppose It Takes
to Shave a Mnnf
"Now that you've finished shaving
roe, how many strokes of the razor did
it require?" asked the man in the chair,
as he straightened Dp to have his hair
"That's pretty hard to tell, "said the
"Of conrse it is. Bat you've been in
the business how long?"
"Yon ought to know by this time
about how many strokes of the razor it
requires to shave a man, supposing that
you go over his faoe a second time."
- "I might make a guess at it."
"All right. What's your guess? Re
member that I have a bard beard."
"Well, I should say about 125."
"You're a good guesser, I don't
think, Home tjme ago I got into the
habit of counting the strokes of a razor
every time I was being shaved. It'B a
good way to employ your mind. In
shaving me you just made 733 strokes
with tbe razor."
"I wouldn't have believed it."
"No man believes it until he takes
the trouble to count. In iny case I never
knew the number to fall below 600,
and it has gone more than 800 at times.
I call it a stroke every time tbe razor
is brought forward and then drawn
back. I should judge that there ate no
fewer than 500 strokes in a first class
shave. You remember that, and proba
bly you can win a few bets." New
The Philadelphia Record tells of an
old Pennsylvania farmer who recently
oame into possession of a check for

muster up the courage to have it cashed.
Finally, while ou a trip to town, he
summoned up nerve enough and, stroll
ing into the bank, presented tbe check.
The teller glanced at it hastily, and
then, after the fashion of his kind,
brusquely asked, "What denomina
"Luthoran, roI durn itt But what's
tbet got tew do with it?" as brusquely
replied the old farmer, to the great as
tonishment of tbe bank official.
It required several minutes' explana

man to understand his question, and
then the latter took bis money and de
