"I half wish you weren't going to
marry Miss Spareribs," said old Mr.
Cautious to his son. "Why not?"
replied the young man. "She's
worth $100,000." "She may be worth
it to you," said his father, "but I
doubt if she'll fetch it." "She
doesn't need to fetch it," said tho
young man, "I'm going after it."
AT THE WITCIIINQ HOUB.
Mr. Thimbleful, after making an
exhaustive search all over the front
door of his residence with the key of
his office safe, sinks down in despair.
"Well," he says, "t'is no kind o'

the marrer, is for builders t make

Arctic explorers rail the attention
of Christian people to the fact that
thieving is scarcely known among
the Esquimaux. We beg the Chris

the greater dppravity of their own

land worth stealing.

"It isn't true, is it7" asked Kollo,
as he finished reading "Tho Pied
Piper of Hamelin;" "it isn't true
that he could play on hia pipe so that
the rats would go off and drown
themselves?" "Well," replied Rol
la's father, "I don't know about
that. I think it may be true. Your
Uncle George can play the flute so
that it will" scare a cow into the
river and drive all the dogs in the
precinct howling crazy. Yes, I guess
the poem is true." And Polio's
Uncle George was so mad he couldn't
see, and he held hia paper straight
in front of him and read clear through
one of Sam Jones's sermons before
he found out that it wasn't an account
of the base ball game.
WHY WAS nE SO SOBBY.
An American traveler writes that
while he was traveling with his fam
ily through Syria last year an Arab
offered him two camels and a donkey
for his sister. Of course the traveler
refused to sell ; no true man, worthy
of the namo of American, would sell
his sister for such a price as that; it's
a mighty poor-sister that won't fetch
four camels and a pacing mule but,
oh, that man's punishment for the
act he did! The remorse that gnawed
at his victuals all that night! His
wife heard him crying, and she said:
"What is the matter? Why do you
weep so bitterly?" "Oh, my dar
ling," said the wretched man, in a
torrent of sobs, "I- am so grieved
that I refused to bring your dear
mother with us on this trip. Oh, I
can never forgive myself; never,
never!" But his wife, although she
secretly triumphed in his penitence,
comforted him and said he could
take her the next time. But he re
fused to be comforted, and said, yes,
but Otis chance would never come
again. But she said ma would be
just as well pleased to go to Saratoga
and Newport next summer, and so
she tenderly hushed him to sleep.
And when she wrote home didn't
she tell how dearly Harry loved ma,
and how lonesome he was without
her? Didn't she? Oh, didn't she,
though? But her husband never
told what an offer ho had for his
sister until two months later.
THE RESOURCES OP OUR COUNTRY.
"Well, the fruit crop might be set
down as a total failure," said the
superintendent of tho largest fruit
canning factory in the State, "a total
failure, you might call it."
That will almost close your estab
lishment, then," said the'visitor.
"Oh no, no," replied the superin
tendent. "On the contrary, e will
have to employ an additional force.
Years when there is no fruit we turn
our attention almost entirely to put
ting up jellies, and then, a little later
on, if the potato crop turns out as
we expact, we will can about three
million pounds of pears."
And, as the visitor, silent with the
awe that falls upon common people
when they stanu in the presence of
cenius, vent softly out of the office,
he saw a car load of hoofs and horns
unloading at the doors of the jelly
Cheer Up! Help is at band.
Tm afraid I stiall have to be taken

longer." No, you won't dear wife
and mother. See what Parker's Tonic
will do for you. Plenty of women as
badly off asou are, have been res
cued almost from the grave by it. It
will build you up, curing all ailments
of the stomach, liver and kidneys, and
