The Old Man Knew How to Collect a
Julian is only 14 months old and a
fine child, though I say it myself. I
had him on my knee in the -parlor of
our flat when a knock came at the door.
I opened it, whereupon a - decidedly
elderly gentleman pushed his way in.
"What a fine boy!" exclaimed the
stranger, looking in admiration at Jul-
I can tell it s a boy. He s so
t I had been inclined to resist his un
ceremonious pushing of himself in, but
he took so much pleasure in J ulian and
Julian was so delighted by the atten
tion that I hadn't the heart to 6ay any
"Six teeth, eh?" continued the pater
nal and kindly old gentleman. "Two
years old, I judge, sir?"
"No, sir," I replied. "It is true he
looks fully two years old, but lie is only
14 months." . . ' " . ' ...
"Impossible," was the reply, in a tone
Julian meanwhile was crowing and
laughing at the stranger and held out
his arms. It suddenly dawned on me
that I had not asked my visitor his
business, but by this time he had Julian
in his lap.
"The child actually weighed all of
25 pounds," he declared. "By the, way,
I came to see you about the gas bill.
Actually 25 pounds! Only 14 months
old! Ha! ha! little boy."
: I had been angry for a week about
my gas bill. The company had taken
away my meter on account of non
payment of a most outrageous charge,
and for some time I had been using
candles. My intention was to sue the
"Hear him laugh!"' cried the vener
able old. gentleman, who . was now
dandling Julian on his knee. "Four
teen months old and weighs 25 pounds!
Julian was in esctasies.
"Well, now," I said, "I don't think I
ought to pay "
But he was so .wrapped up in Julian
that he really did not hear me.' He
brought forth an old wallet and drew
my gas bill from it. . -
"Here, little boy," he cried, "is some
thing for you to play with. I really be
lieve he'll have another tooth through
in a week. There isn't another baby in
Brooklyn to equal him."
Julian was waving that gas "bill in
his little fist, and the two made . the
sweetest picture together the old gen
tleman and the child. . I 'had a $10 bill
that I was hoarding to buy a new coat
and vest with, and 1 brought it out with
a sigh. ' The old gentleman accepted it
"Well, well," he said. "I must be
going. ' Twenty-five pounds! Four
teen months old!"
As he walked downstairs he looked
back two or three times to wave his
hand and cry "By-by" at Julian- He
was certainly a superior and well edu
cated old gentleman and I have no
doubt he was reduced to the necessity
of taking up his present occupation by
reverses of fortune, but I wish I had
thought of asking him to have my
gas meter brought back.; St. Louis

With all England's condemnation of
the social disadvantages, to which the
colored race is subjected in the United
States, she is giving abundant evidence
of being imbued with, radical preju
dices that are. every bit as strong.
Thus, the volunteer regiments of the
great universities have declined to ad
mit to their ranks students of Indian
or of African origin, and a number of
other volunteer and militia corps, in
cluding the Inns of Court batallion,

The present fashion is that of placing

priate nor artistic, and when there is a

possibly improve nature's favorites

cheaper,'' is a statement sometimes
made by the druggist when Scott's
Emulsion is called for. This shows
that the druggists themselves regard
of Cod-Liver Oil with Hypophos
phites of Lime and Soda as the
standard, : and the purchaser who
desires to procure the " standard "
because he knows it has been of
untold benefit, should not for one
instant think of taking the risk of
using some untried prepa
ration. The substitution
of something said to be
"just as good" for a stand
ard preparation twenty
five years on the market,
should not be permitted by
the intelligent purchaser.
