A Mean Practical Joke.
When Colonel Singleton was a candidate
for congress from one of the hill districts of
Arkansas he had a rich experience. He soon
' became the butt of his opponents' jokes,
and as there were 10 aspirants for the posi
tion his life was an exaggerated burden.
' Once when the candidates ' on horseback
were going to meet by appointment in ora
torical contest Singleton fell behind, deter
mining no longer to submit to their rail
lery. The party passed out of sight, leav
ing the disconsolate candidate to his own
reflections. A slight rain had fallen, and
when the party crossed a broad, shallow
creek one young fellow conceived the idea
of a joke.
"Suppose," said he, "that we take off our
coats and wait until Singleton comes in
sight, when we will put them on, giving to
him the impression that the creek is deep.
We'll not say anything to him, and he will
think that we want him to plunge into the
water." . .
, The idea was acted on. Pretty soon Sin
gleton came along.
"That's all right," he yelled, when he
; saw the men hurriedly putting on their
coats. "I understand you. Want me to
get wet, ehf"
He dismounted, and although the day
was fearfully cold he took off his clothes,
mounted and carefully guiding his horse,
he entered the stream. The water was not
more than six inches deep, and when he
perceived the cruel joke he stood up in his
stirrups and began to swear, when his
clothes fell into the water and began to
float away. In attempting to reach over
and regain them he fell and his horse, stag
gering, stepped on him. His rage was ter
rific, and when he arrayed himself in his
garments lie borrowed a gun at a neighbor
ing house and chased his political opponents
15 miles, totally forgetting his appointment
to speak. Exchange.
Irish Wit and Courtesy.
A sudden gust of wind took a parasol
. from the hand of its owner, and a lively
Irishman, dropping bis hod of bricks,
caught the parachute.
"Faith, ma'am," said he, "if you were as
strong as you are handsome, it would not
have got away from you."
"Which shall I thank you for first the
service or the complimentF" asked the lady
"Troth, ma'am," said Pat, again touch
ing the place where once stood the brim of
what once was a beaver, "that look of your
beautiful eye thanked me for both." Scottish-American.
One Was Enough.
"You love my daughter?" said the old
man. - i .
"Love her?" he exclaimed, passionately,

HOME FROM SCHOOL.
Now here I am In the good old place
Yes, little mother, I'm here to stay.
Let me hold yonr hair against my face '
And kiss both cheeks in the dear old way.
Just look at me hard I'm well and strong;
Just feel my arms they'll stand the test;
I'll go to the kitchen where I belong;
Yon go to the porch and rest. -
Now hear, little mother, yon dear little mother,
Sit under the vines and rest.
I liked my teachers. I liked my books.
I had my share of the pranks and fun.
But my heart came bock to the sweet home
And rested with you when the day was done.
I used to think what you had for tea;
Just what you were doing and how you were
And somehow or other it seemed to me
You didn't take half enough rest.
You sly little mother, you spry little mother,
I'm going to have you rest.
Dear little mother, it brings the tears
Whenever I think what I've let you do.
You've planned for my pleasure years and
It's time I planned a little for you.
So drop that apron and smooth your hair;
Read', visit or knit what suits you best;
Lean back in your chair, let go your care.
And really and truly rest.
You neat little mother, you sweet little mother.
Just take a vacation and rest.

The Beauty of Wrinkles. "
And now an authority inveighs against
steaming the face as a preventive against
wrinkles, alleging that this is the swift
est and surest process by which to pro
duce them. "The second layer of the
skin becomes attenuated, and there is a
decrease in bulk of the superficial lay
ers," is the technical explanation which
the laity will not understand and does
not need to. The simple fact is suffi-
cient But why should wrinkles be such
a red rag to every woman? They must
inevitably come if one lives long enough,
and barring the suppression of the habit
of frowning and the avoidance of dan
gerous cosmetics it seems useless to fight
Time was when we were taught that
they were the lines of character, and
time is when character, as shining forth
in the expression of the face, makes the
wrinkles forgotten. Watch the soul be
hind the wrinkles. Take as much care
of that as you strive to of the outer layer
of cuticle, which is its external sem
blance, and the wrinkles will be lost or
overlooked in the serene and steady eye
and quiet but smiling mouth. "Think
lofty things," says a preacher, "and the
countenance will show the thought."

The Natives Had Scruples.
Once an amusing story was told me
by a South sea trader, writes Mrs. Rob
ert Louis Stevenson. He had been in the
habit of carrying all sorts of tinned
meats, which the natives bought with
avidity. Each tin was branded with a
colored picture a cow for beef, a sheep
for mutton and a fish for sardines.
It happened that the firm who fur
nished the mutton thought it a good
plan to change their labels, that their
goods might be more easily distinguished
from others. The mark chosen was a
The natives came with their copra to
trade as usual. The new tins were
shown them, but they recoiled with hor
ror and gave the trader to understand
that they had had some religious in
struction and were not to be deluded in
to eating tinned devil.
The trader was forced to eat his stock
of mutton himself, for not a native could
be persuaded to touch the accursed
thing. '; -

"But," said the young woman, "did you
