No Demand for It.
The owner of a very valuable iron
deposit in the east learned by accident
that his ore contained a quantity of an
element that produces the blackest dye
known to chenfistry or commerce and
worth some fabulous price per ounce.
Delighted at the prospect of wealth,
he made ready to produce his dye, but
preliminary investigation showed that
the total demand for the stuff was not
more than a few pounds per annum,
lie gave up the scheme as a commer
cial venture, though he had, as he de
clares, enough of the stuff to blacken
the face of the universe.

"Are you in, pard?" asked. a third

Here is a funny incident that oc
curred at a wedding: The bridegroom
of the occasion was a man devoted to
inventions, whose hobby lay in patents
and electricity," and who was engaged
at the time on a ' wonderful 'piece of
machinery for a purpose that has
slipped my memory. Anyway, his
thoughts, even while at the altar, were
so engrossed with his pet scheme, that
while the clergyman was asking "Wilt
thou," etc. his ear caught but the pat
ter of the raindrops upon the stained
glass windows, and he impulsively ex
claimed: "I do hope they'll think tocover
up my machine!" . The clergyman was
shocked, but repeated in withering
tones:- "Wilt thou have this woman to
be thy wedded wife?" "Of course I
will," was the impetuous reply of the
inventor, "what else do you think I've
come for?" And then he was suddenly
recalled to language more fit for the

sailmakers and mates, about one hun

swains are stationed mostly on the re

various shore stations; the gunners do
some service of the same sort, and are
sometimes assigned as inspectors of
ordnance; the carpenters are found at
the navy yards, public and private, on
the training ships, and at-sea; the sail
makers are nearly all ashore, and the
mates are mostly on receiving ships or
on special duty on the smallest vessels.
There have been no appointments to

HE WAS NO SNOB.
Story of a Political Campaign in the Bine
-. Grass State.
John C. Underwood, who was elected
lieutenant governor of Kentucky on
the same ticket with Luke Blackburn,
is an amusing story teller, particularly
when he is started on the subject of
political stumping in Kentucky. "Our
people," said he not long ago to a New
York Evening Post man,- "don't like
snobbishness. I remember one time
when I was stumping one of the moun
tain counties. I bought twenty-five
dollars worth of nickels and carried
them in my saddle bags. At every log
cabin I would ride up and ask for a
drink of water. Out would come a lit
tle boy or girl with a gourd dipper of
warm water. I would take a swallow,
then drop a nickel in the dipper. The
little one would run in and I would go
on. The child's mother would come
out and have the generous gentleman
pointed out. The consequence was
that I got the vote of that house.
Well, one morning I rode up to a house
and a little girl brought me out a dip
per of water. I felt in my pocket and
discovered that I hadn't a copper.. '
" 'Little girl,' said I, , 'I generally
have a nickel somewhere about me, but
I haven't to-day, so I'll give yon what's
the next best thing for a girl, and
that's a kiss,' and I got down off my
horse, and kissed her for my own little
blue-eyed girl at home. Another little
black-eyed girl here showed up, and I
had to kiss her for a niece of mine she
looked like. By this time another lit
tle girl showed up, half a head taller
than the rest, and, not to be impartial,
I kissed her, when I found that four
or five other girls had gathered and I
was in for it. So, beginning with the
smallest, I kissed each one. The change
in stature was so gradual that I didn't
notice that the last one was a full
grown young woman and right hand
some at that until I had kissed her.
Looking up I saw that there were two
or three old ladies laughing at me, and
thinking that I had made a bad break.
I lifted my hat to the young lady and
begged her pardon and explained how
it was. She didn't seem to mind it
much, but the old ladies kept laughing,
and one said: 'Why, durn it, she's
" 'Well,' I thought, 'I'm in for it.
That knocks out all my votes in this
neighborhood, I inquired at the next
man's house who Bill wasand was told
that it was 'Buck' Holmes, the hardest
citizen in Carter county. . Next day I
had to speak at the courthouse and
when I came up I noticed a gang of
about twenty-five rough-looking fel
lows off at one side, and a big six-footer
talking to them and gesticulating
with both hands.
" 'Who's that?' I inquired.
'"That's "Buck7 Holmes and his
gang, was the reply. Cold chills ran
down my back and I shifted my re
volver around to where I could reach
it without trouble, and then sauntered
up to overhear what he was saying.
"'Well, I'm blankety blanked,' I
heard him say, 'if he don't catch my
vote. No snob thar, gentlemen. Jest
as soon kisss a noor man's wife as a rich
one's!' That settled it, and 1 got one
hundred and fifty more votes in that
county than any other man on the
WANTED AN EASIER WAY.
The Percentage Business Was Too Tutrl
. cate for Him.
"One of the best salesmen we nave
on the road, if not the very best," said
a well-known wholesale dealer to a De
troit Free Press man, "came to us ten
years ago from the backwoods, and a
greener fellow you never saw. I met
him the first time he came into the
stoVe, and gave him his start. lie told
me about the kind of country he lived
in and its remoteness, and said he want
ed to sell from house to house, but he
didn't wan't to be a common peddler.
" 'We can't give you a salary,' said I,
'but we will allow you a commission
of twenty-five per cent, on all you sell
for cash.' .
" 'I don't rightly understand this
commission and per cent, business,
said he, scratching his head, 'seein' I
ain't used to it; but I'll tell you what
111 Uo; you just agree to give me ten
cents on every dollar's worth I sell and
111 undertake it; that's plain enough
for anybody to understand,' .
"I let him go at.that," laughed the
merchant in conclusion,' "and made it
up to him at the end of the year by
putting him on the road with a good
salary, and permission to tell the story
every time we gave him a raise, and
we gave him one yesterday, and I've
told the story a good many times."
The Work That Is Being Done by a Wash
ington Tutor of Foreigners.
In the national capital is a private
tutor of English to foreigners who
trains them in the idioms of pronuncia
tion with this chain of similarly spelled
words: "Though the tough cough and
hiccough plough me through." The re
sult is humorous, says the Washington
Post, as these samples of the efforts of
the pupils will show:
Tho the to co and hicco plo me thro.
Thuf the tuf cuf and hiccuf pluf me
Thof then tof cof and hiccof plof me
Thup the tup cup and hiccup plupme
. . Thoo the too coo and hiccoo ploo me
. It is not surprising that Voltaire,
when he began to study English and
learned that ague was pronounced as
two syllables and plague as one, should
have wished that half the English had
the one disease and the other half the
other. ' ' "
Not So Green as He Looked.
At one of the posts of the signal
corps (according to a southern writer),
an infantryman lounged up to the man
on duty, and eemed deeply interested
in his maneuvers. The signalman
paid no attention to . the newcomer,
but continued to "flop away right and
left" with his flag. "Isa-a-y, str-a-nger,"
drawled the fellow at last, "are the
fli-es a-pestering of yon?"
