on the other hand, that bis brother,
Banker John, of McMinnville, is as
proud of his brotker's, the doctor's
scholarly renown as he is of his own ac
cumulation of dollars. Be that as it
may, the man from Canemah dug up in
Wyoming the skull of a novel kind of
monkey and now he has set the dry

Yale to , rattling by announcing, aB
deductions from study of the skull, that
Eden was in the North Polar regions
and that when the icy peaks began to
form, he, the half-ape man, discovered

Quite naturally I remnrked that some

Patrick, a thrifty tradesman In the
neighborhood of the Dublin docks, was,
the story goes, a man who never spent
a penny more than he needed to spend,
but he was nevertheless as good a man
at the making of an Irish bull as any
who lived between Bantry and Bally
castle. Having one day occasion to send a
letter to a place some distance, Patrick
called a messenger and asked him his
price for going such a dlstanc.
"It '111 be a shllllu'," said the man.
"Twice too much!" said Patrick. "Let
it be sixpence."
"Nivver," answered the messenger.
"The way Is that lonely that I'd nivver
go It under a shillin'."
"Lonely, Is It?" said Patrick, scratch
ing his head, "Faith, an' ye're right
Now, man, I'll tell ye what we'll do;
