"One of tho most curious traits to bo
found in tho nnlmnl nature," eald an
observant citizen, "is that which grows
out of the unconscious Itultativuness of
creatures of the lower order. 1 hav
observed many instances of n-erc the
creatures of n lower order have takeu
on tho characteristics in some notice
able degree of members of the human
family. One might know, for Instance,
the beggar's dog from tho look of the
dog, from the droop of the eye, tho pn
thctic hang of the lip and a certain gen
eral air of despondency and hopeless
ness which seems to speak In the very
aturo of the animal. 1 mention the
beggar's dog because it is a familiar
example. Tho beggar's dog never looks
cheerful, never smiles, never frolics,
but simply sits by his master and
broods and bogs for whatever charity
"I have seen the dog character mold
ed under happier Influences, and the
dog became more cheerful. He was a
light hearted, free and easy sort of
creature and seemed to get something
of the sunnier side of things. I am al
most tempted to say that if you will
6how me a man's dog I will tell you
what manner of miin the owner is,
with particular reference to tempera
ment and his moods. The melancholy
man, the man who grovels mentally
along the gloomier groves, tho pessi
mistic man who is always looking at
the dark side of the picture, all the men
who come within these unhappy classi
fications rarely own a cheerful dog.
The dog unconsciously takes to tho
ways of tho master and In his moods
Imitates the master's way of thinking.
"But turn to the dog of the jolly,
cheerful fellow. Watch him show his
teeth in laughter when tho master ap
proaches. He is darting across the
yard and dancing and frisking around
the master's feet in the happiest way
Imaginable, and he is up to all kinds of
pranks nnd does all kinds of little
things to indicate the good nature that
1b In him. He does as his master does
and seems to take tho same general
view of life. These are small things, I
guess, but they show Just how impor
tant one's wny of thinking may influ
ence one's dog and change his whole
view of life." New Orleans Times

The things men inherit are mostly

Kings are great in the eyes of the

Men are singularly unoriginal when
they make love or pray. Women and

A woman nbver does care for her

A Good Memory.
When Theodore Roosevelt wns gov
ernor of New York, ho was a great
friend of the porters and employees of
the New York Central. One morning
he took tho l):15 train from Albany
west, and as he entered the car he said
to Adams, the colored porter: "Hello,
porter! You hero still V"
"Yes, sir," replied the porter, "and
I'm goiug to stay here till you get to be
president, and then I want you to give
