Some old Joke.
The Cornhlll Magazine publishes cer
tain extract from an old French Jeat
book which prove at least that Joke
are not very much changed, for sum
of these are dull aa tho pleasautry of
our own day. They are comprised
under the hiding Menngiana, and ar
extracts from the conversations which
took place at the house of Gllles Men
age, a student and writer of the net-en-teenlli
century. He waa the author of
much literature, both poetry aud criti
cal prose, and was considered a wit;
but whether be and his frtenda actual
ly sparkled at their Wednesday gath
erings may be guessed from a few sam
ples of the conversation there:
"I had taken the uaml or Maunme i-e
p . When she drew It away Mu.
Tollitler eold to me, 'That Is the most
beautiful work which baa ever gouo
out of your hands!' "
"Assume, sir," said a gentleman In a
business argument with another, "that
you owe me tcu thousand crown."
'Tray, sir," said the other, Interrupt
ing hli'n, "have the goodness to make
nine other hypothesis!"
Above a flreplnco were two figures,
Justice and Peace, kissing each other.

Last fall I bought u few bushels of nn
early red potato out of the cellar-t'hl- ,
cago Market, Knehester Hose, or sonic
thing olso-and laid them In u place
on the roof of a low Micd to start their .
hprouts, thinking to forward the crop
Iu this way. After a while 1 planted,
inosl of them, but a few still lay on the
risif until July 14. when part of tho i
garden patch having boon dug for new
potatoes, I planted forty hills to soo
what they would do right In the old
hills. I'.y this time they wore sun-
burned, black as coal almost, and their
etiibby sprouts, oovoivd with tiny
green leaves, were two Inches long.
The weather was dry and hot, the earth
dry as ashes, and nothing wns seen of
them till a light shower brought them
up July 21. From this their growth
was rapid, and there was a larger
growth of vines than the first crop had.
A frost cut them down Sept. 22, but
they were nearly ripe. The first crop
did not ripen, but they would have
grown little, If any, more. Mr. Waldo
F. Brown, who has croon corn by the
time mine Is fairly up- not more than a
foot high at the most could raise two
crops In this way with all enso, and
so could any one who has a degree or
two less latitude (42 degrees HO min
utes). The potatoes you lay out on the
boards must be recut; then they will
keep until It Is time for the second
planting. Two crops of potatoes is nei
ter than lhe crop of fall weeds we see
en often where garden isitalocs have
been dug. New York Tribune.
