One day in a Sixth avenue cbophouaa
we(l dressed young man anting at a
table not far from me finished hia lunch
and aaked for hia check, but aa it waa
brought to him he aoddenly rose up and
hurried to the caahier'a desk, which waa
near the door, and said :
"Sir, I bare dropped foO out of my
pocket in Ibia place) Let no one go out
until I make a search !"
"Where's your check?" he waa asked.
"Here it ia. I had two twenties and
a $10 bill."
"Will yon pay tbia check of $1.50?"
"I can't till I find my rolL"
"Tbomaa, call in an officer!"
-.Hat wbat lor?" eased tb victim.
' "To arrest yon if yon don't pay!

"But I bare dropped $.)0i"
"Guff I Will you pay?"
"I'll pay if I can find my money. I
know I bad it when I came in here."
"Call the copper, Tom !" -
Two minutea later an officer bustled
in to see what was wanted. The cashier
was telling him that be bad a dead beat
to be cared for when a woman rose np
to leare, and the young man's $50 was
found on the floor, where it had been
oirr ared by her skirts.
"Didn't I tell yon so!" be exclaimed
as be returned to the cashier to pay the
check. "Nice sort of msn, yon are! I'll
sue yon for damages before I'm through
The cashier looked tired, but made
no reply. When the indignant young
man bad departed. I aaid : '
"Then he wasn't a beat, after all?"
"The alickeat kind," be replied. -
"But be lost his money, and it waa

"Bta-k" beer ia the keynote of hiKtory
of beer, brewing aa it ia uuderatoixl by
the people of thia day. It ia generally
auppoaed that beer ia of diatinctiTelr
German origin, whereaa it ia a fact that
beer waa brewed by the men of many
nationalities in many parte of the world
centuries before the Chriatian era. The
fcgypliana. the Mreeka, the Romans,
made beer from corn and barley in thorn
ancient times. The lager beer of the
liermana waa a Bavarian product and
"botk" beer originated in Hararia.
We bare beard a number of atoriea sa
to the origin of the term "bock'' beer,
and while they all vary aa'to detail, they
are aa a rule correct. When beer waa
first brewed iu Bavaria and for a long
time after arl in that aud all other
parta of the world, ice formed no part
in the manufacture, though it waa rerr
necessary that it should be fermented
and aiored in a cold temperature, Aa ioe 1 ,
was not relied upon to make thia cold
air and aa artificial refrigeration waa not ;
dreamed of. brewing waa done only iu j
cold weather, and the beer waa atored in
chill raulta underground. Here it waa j
left to age until some time in spring, j
say the latter part of April or the begin- J
ning of May, when the vaults were
thrown open and the thirxty public waa
regaled with a pure, wholesome draft of
the foamy beverage. And aa the firat
issue from thete vaults waa atronger and
liable to go to the bead, the people were
said to be " bocked ;" hence the name.
Another Tertian of, the story ia that
when tbe raulta were thrown open, a
bock jumped out and that gave rise to
the name and alao to the widely adver
tised "William" goat who ai.rna tbe
"bock" beer aigua of the present day.
But "bock" beer seaxon ia a time of
sentiment to the Germans, and other
people bare imbibed the sentiment with
the dark and heavy drink. Tbey want
"bock" beer at the proper time and
they will drink it then and enjoy it

Lock is not a reliable factor in the
difficult problem of carnation culture. It
demands exhaMMtire, knowledge of the
habits, requirements and diaeai-e of tbe
plant, unceasing watchfulness and uire
mitting labor tbe year through. Even
when all is done that actus possible to
merit success, tbe grower is liable to tbe
exasperation of finding that particular

nately refuse to flourish under bis care-
Almost every carnation cnltnrist knows
varieties that he "simply cannot raise"

tell the reason why. Of course, there
