A SUCCESSFUL DANCE.
A. Few Incident That Didn't Disturb' the
' The party was given at a farm bouse,
and about thirty couples were present,
raid ths Tnlprln TUiirlo T trM y,a
- farmer when I first arrived that I
should depend upon him to give me at
. least five minutes' notice before any
shooting; began, and he replied: .
' "I'll do it. I shall be watchin out,
and I think I can give yo' plenty of
time to pet out of range." -
"There will be shooting-, of course?"
! "Oh, certainly. The boys would feel
.t that -t they ; had slighted me if there
wasn't a row."
"What do the women folks do when
the shooting begins?" """ ' '
"Sit right down on the floor till it's
ajl over. Don't be a bit oneasy.- I'll
give ye plenty of warnin'."
Ihere was only one fiddler, and he
'was also the caller, says the Detroit
frff Ti"fRR. TTia cfllla Tny.ll m. n r.
first, but no one else appeared to mind
it as he drawled:
"Bight and left on the head, and Bill
Taylor don't want to drop that revolver
on the floor! Balance four and half
, promenade, and J im Henderson has a
knife in his boot-leg! Ladies change,
' and Luke Williams is aching- to pick a
fnoa vxrttK ' TVm TlaKaal - All lilliniii
partners, and when the shootin' begins
please remember that the fiddler never
t takes sides!"
We had been dancing- about an hour,
and everybody seemed to be thoroughly
good-natured and at peace with all
mankind, when the farmer beckoned
to me and whispered:
"I said I'd give yo' five minutes' warn
in', but I'm two minutes behind time!
Break for the barn!"
I broke, but was not over thirty feet
ffrom the 'door when the shooting- be
gan. It lasted about five minutes, and
X cautiously returned to the house to
hear the fiddler-calling- in the same old
' "Take partners for Virginia reel, and
don't make sich a fuss over three men
wounded! First lady and gent for
ward and back,- and Bill Taylor has
gone after a doctor! . Forward . again
and sasha, and: somebody attend to
that gal in hysterics! Swing with the
right now with the left, and if this
isn't the most successful dance of the
season, then you folks - needn't pay me
a cent!" . - - ,
" ' UNCLE BOB'S LESSON.
Bow an Tld 'Negro Taught the Emperor"
. ,; SIter-ln-L.air a Pntat on Etiquette.
t Mma;. Betsey Patterson .Bonaparte,
the sister-in-law of an emperor, was
bora in Baltimore, and after living
many years abroad returned to her na
tive land, where she passed the last
jyears of her life." She was a woman of
great beauty, but of an ungovernable
rtemper. A writer in the Boston Trans
cript tells how her sense of : humor
- once enabled her . to accept a reproof
jrraeiouslv. ' ... i .
One of- the old' lady's crack stories in
her latter-'davs was of a lesson in eti-
.quette given her by the black butler of
her host. At breakfast she motioned

down witn a great, uourisn on ine side
board. - V "But.I wanted another cup of tea,"
said ftlrae- Bonaparte.'
"Did you, , raum?" blandly asked
Uncle Bob. "You see. mum.' vou nut
your spoon in de saucer, an' dat means
you doan' want no mo' tea. When you
. wants some mo' tea.de c'rect way is to
- put Ue spoon in de cup 4ike dis heah,"
"c'rect" method of procedure.
. . The family, were on thorns, expect
ing an outbreak -from the sister-in-law
of an emperor, although there is no
doubt that 'a black butler in his own
- bailiwick could face an 'emperor him
. self: but Betsey was only amused, and
After fif tv vears of money cettincr
t and moncy.-saving- she realized in the
latter part of her life how futile it all
'' was, and exclaimed, grimly: ."Once I
had everything ...but money! ' Now I
have nothing but money."
Punishment of Sacrileee. -. ' '
In years gone by Ireland had a sa
'.xjred oak dedicated to St.. -Columbian,
one of the peculiarities of the tree be
ing that whoever carried a small bit of
. the wood or bark in . his mouth- would
heyer meet with a violent death, it be
ling especially efficacious in saving
Christian martyrs from the block. . It
was known throughout the British isles
' as the holy xak of Kenmare. After the
lapse of many centuries this sacred
oak was uprooted by a . storm, after
which it was said to be guarded by
angels to keep heretics from gather
ing the wood for fuel. At last a wicked
tannerV "barked" one of its largest
limbs and tanned some leather, which
he made into shoes for himself, imagin
ing- that such relics would bring him
wealth and power. lie wore them but
once however, but that one time was
enough to make him an incurable leper.
Ten days loss of time on account of
sickness and a doctor bill to pay, is any
thing buf. pleasant for a man of a family
to contemplate, whether he ia a laborer,
, mechanic, merchant or publisher. ' Jas.
O. Jones, publisher' of the. Leader,
Mexia, Texas, was Eick in bed for ten
days with the grip during its prevalence
a year or two ago. Later in the season
; be had a second attack. He says : "In
the latter case J used Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy with considerable suc
cess, I think, only being in bed a little
over two days. . The second attack I am
satisfied wduld have been equally as bad
as the first but for the use of the remedy."
It should be borne' in mind that the grip
is much the same as a very severe cold
and requires precisely the same treat
ment. When you wish to cure a cold
quickly and effectually give this remedy
