When the conductor of the
Lansing train was making his
rounds the otlier morning, after
leaving Detroit, he came to a
man who was not ready with
his ticket. He felt in all his
pockets, searched the lining of
his hat, and finally remarked:
"I thought I bought a ticket,
but Pcan't find it."
"I must have your ticket or
your fare," said the conductor.
'()-course. Nobody- can
ride free on railroads. Guess
I've lost my ticket, and and 1
haven't got a cent to pay fare
"Then I'll have to pitt you
"I suppose so."
He was allowed time to make
another search, but, not finding
a ticket, he
was told to get olf
at the next station. He was
ready to step off when the train
stopped, bit he had scarcely
left 1 the car before a passenger j

The following is .a very curious
puzzle. Try it all of you:
Open a book at random and
select a word within the first ten
lines and within the tenth word
from the end of the line. Mark
the word. Now double the num
ber of the page and'multiply the
sum by five.
Then add twenty.
Then add the number of the
line you have selected. ;
Then add fiv
Multiply the sunv-by ten.
Add the number of the word
in the line. From this sum sub
tract 250, and the remainder will
indicate in ihe unit column the
number of the word; in the ten
column the number of the line,
and the remaining' figures the
number of the page.
