When Soldier« Were Flogged.
It would have needed a very alluring
form of advertisem ent indeed to a t
tract men to the English army a hun
dred years ago. W riting of that period
a w riter says: “Flogging was almost
universal. The maximum number ot
lashes were gradually reduced from
1,500 to 3(X). but the notion that dis
cipline could not be maintained w ith
out summary punishment continued to
be believed, and W ellington himself
dealt with Ougrant cases by hanging
the culprits upon trees in the public
roads. One result was that only men
belonging to the lowest classes would
join the arm y.” In 1771 a sentinel in
the guards was flogged in St. Jam es'
park so severely that lie subsequently
died raving mad. Ills offense consisted
of saying that “there was no more en
couragement for a good soldier than
for a bad one.”
Too Much Cavity.
One afternoon an esteemed citizen
went into a barber shop to have his
briers reaped, but no sooner had he
taken a seat in one of the chairs than
he dropped off into heavy slumber.
Apparently tlie shave artist was hav
ing his ow’u troubles in manipulating
the customer, and after making several
attem pts he thoughtfully paused.
“Excuse me. sir,” said he, gently
shaking the man in the chair, “but
would you mind waking up? I can’t
shave you while you are asleep.”
“Can’t shave me while I’m asleep,”
exclaimed the victim, with a wonder
ing expression. “Why not?”
“Because,” explained the barber as
softly as possible, “when you fall into
slum ber your mouth opens so wide
that I can't find your face.”—Philadel
