HE WANTED TO WADE, HE DID.
The Weary Bank President Found a Itoeky
Vale araduoto to Go Htm.
A stout gentleman, well on to GO
years, was in the throng of Saturday
afternoon visitors at tlio Produce Ex
change baths yesterday afternoon.
Ho told everybody that he'd had a
hard wee!:. He said he was a bank
president. All tho attendants scorned
to know hun. Ho know nil tho at
tendants too. They wore Tom and
Jim and Pete to him.
He wanted everybody to under
stand that lio'd had a hard weok.
Every newcomer was corralled an
impressed with tho fact. Then ho
said ho wanted some ono to take his
hand and wade through the pool
with him. Tho pool is SO feet long
and 15 feet wide, with five feet of
salt water. Ho wanted to wado in,
now Bummer suit and all. It would
rest him and inako him forget his
hard week, he 6aid, if Bomobody
would take his hand and wado in
"It'll mako mo feel like a boy
again," said tho alleged bank presi
dent. "We used to wade in clothes and
all when I was a boy," ho added
when his appeal was not heeded.
While ho was waiting for sonao ono
to take his hand and wade, in walked
a young man nlso in n new summer
suit. Tho young man wore silver
bowed spectacles. Ho is a graduate
of Yale. Hu peered over his Bpecta
les at tho old fellow, who returned
tho peer and then made his appeal to
tho young man.
"Well, old man," said ho of tho
silver bowed spectacles, "I was out
pretty lato myself last night. I'll go
Solemnly the old man and tho
younger man clasped hands and
walked to tho edge of the pool. They
zigzagged a little, but they stood upon
the brink of tho pool steady enough,
and banging their hats down upon
their heads, they stepped off. The
water was nearly up to their shoul
ders. But band in hand they waded
tho length of tho pool, tho bank pres
ident smiling and contented and. tho
younger rnan peering over his silver
bowed spectacles as if ina.contemphv
tive mood. Not a word did they say
to each other. Tho old man's face
wore the expansive smile of childish
delight. Tho younger man was sol
emnly content. They clambered out
of the pool hand in hand, soaked
from shoulders to heels. Tho old man
shook the hand of his younger com
rade and said:
"I thank you, sir. You have af
forded me much pleasure"
"All right, old man," said the Yalo
graduate. "Any timo you want to
wade send for me."
Ho gavo the old man his card, and
as the old man jabbed tho limp paste
board into tho puddlo in his waist
coat pocket ho remembered his
watch. Ho pulled out a massive gold
timepiece. Tho salt water had
stopped it and probably ruined it.
As ho came to this conclusion tho
old man said:
"Well, nover mind, wo had fun,

Just Ilefore s'u Earthquake.
An earthquake is likely to bo at
tended with great atmospherio dis
turbance, such as explosions, thun
der, lightning, etc. At Millittollo.
there was an explosion in the fog
which overhung the city for several
days before tho great earthquake,
many houses having their roofs and
upper stories completely ruined as
the result hours before tho shock
which completed the awful work of
destruction. In otlior instances queer
looking clouds, in some cases not
larger than a good sized balloon, will
hang over a spot threatened by an
earthquake for soveral days prior to
the beginning of the terrestrial dis
turbances. This was the case at Lon
don in tho year 1140, at Minister in
1012, at Lisbon and at Riobanda,
South America. At Dunstal, Eng
land, all tho water in the lake "stood
up like a pyramid to the height of
100 feet," and in several cases all tho
water was thrown out of tho wells,
