Childhood is an interesting period of life,
and the bright savings of little children
furnish an inlinito fund of nmuseiueut for
grown-up people. "Childhood shows tho
man as morning shows tho day,'' and the
process of the children's mental develop
ment is ever watched with interest. As
other papers report the cute sayings and
actions of children, so also can we, and
below we givo a few which Jhavo come to
A little son of Mr. and -Mrs. YV. T. Wright
had burned himself on several occasions
and his mother always applied Hour to
relievo the pain. This caused the boy to
think that (lour was the panacea for every
ill. One day a party of invited guests as
sembled at tho house to take dinner. A
short time previous to tho dinner hour the
boy committed nimu misdemeanor which
caused his motner to take him to one side,
draw him across her knee, and administer
a spanking calculated to last him for some
time. Tho culprit limped away, appar
ently in great agony, and disappeared. He
was forgotten by tho company till they sat
down to dinner whon somo one wondered
what hud become of him. Just then, with a
most woe-begono countenance, ho emerged
from tho pantry tenderly rubbing tho seat
of his pants which he had loaded with sev
eral pounds of Hour, lie was received
with roars of laughter, but his evident pain
and Ingenious ell'orts to relieve it gained
for lilm tho instant forgiveness or all pres
ent. Mr. and Mrs. Tuttlo have several chil
dren and tho two youngest, a boy and girl,
have a great time together. Tho girl is tho
oldest, but tho boy thinks ho knows a great
deal the most and always puts on a patron
isung air of superiority when addressing
her. A few days ago their father bought
tlicin a picture book. It contained several
scriptural illustrations among which was a
representation of David and the lion. Tho
children were seated on tho lloor in the
corner of tho room, looking at the pictures,
unconscious that anyone was noticing
them, when the little girl said she wondered
what that picture was about. Tho boy re
plied "Humph I you don't know what that
picture is? You don't seem to kn iw very
much nohow. That's Joan a diokin' a
bear to death.''
Attornoy H. V. UurlbUjh is tho happy
possessor of a young, unbound edition of
law, aged about live years, He was at the
store, recently, and sclented at random a
hook forthe boy and took It home to him.
Unfortunately the book happened to con
tain an account of tho wonderful exploits
of "Kimble Jack.'' and was prufiuoly illus
trated with colored pictures showing
"Nimble Jack" hi various unnatural por
tions. 'J'Ud honk was presented to tho boy
and peace reigned in the family for about
an hour when a moil unearthly commo
tion was heard In the v irl r. Invrxtiga-

cut just above hh right eye. The damages,
including the doctor's bill, amounted to
something less than a hundred dollars. It
is needless to say that Mr. P.urlcigh buys
no more books unless ho knows exactly
what tliey contain.
Little Itculuh, the tlve-ycar-old daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Joiun, is u very ob
servant little piece of humanity. Some
time ago she was taken to tho burlier shop
where her hair was shingled. This, to her,
seemed a very funny proceeding and she
always remembered it. Sho goes to Sun
day school and recently the lesson given to
tho little class to which she belongs was
concerning David. After tho lesson was
read tho teacher, among other questions,
asked who it was that anointed David.
Xono of the little tots seemed able to an
swer, so the tcuchcrsimplillcd the question
by asking "Who was it that poured oil on
David's head?" The question still seemed
to be a poser, and the silence that brooded
over the class was becoming painful, when
Hculali threw a Hood of light on the subject
by saying: "The barber."
Mrs. Alger was hanging a picture of the
"myriad minded hard" on the parlor wall
some time ago when her little four-year-old
boy asked who it was. "That Is Shakes
peare'' said the mother. The youngster
seemed lost in thought for awhile and then
ho said "Say mania: Mow docs ho shako
and where is Ids spear?"
This is from Pendleton : Freddie, the
three-year-old sou of Mr. and Mrs. Hurt
man, fell into tho pond in the rear of their
residence tho other day, but scrambled out
with no more dangerous result than a good
wetting. The unfortunate youngster made
the following original remark when ho
reached dry land: "I is glad 1 dot out
before 1 dot to be a little lish."
