Fifty year ago "Uncle Harry" wits u
well known resident of a village in the Old
Colony, writes a correspondent. Slow of
speech and action, he was reputed to be
"easygoing." He had lived to the age or
seventy without a wife, and it wits opeiil)
said that he was "too la.y to go courting.''
which of course marked him as a very l.i.-.
One day the village wits startled by the
news of Uncle Harry's marriage. Shortly
afterward the -.quire, its the otjo lawyer of
the place wits called, happened to be driv
ing pitst Uncle Harry's farm, and seeing
the old man in the yard stopped for u little
gossip The bridegroom, visibly "Hinnrt
ened up." wits resplendent with happiness.
'You seem so well contented, how did It
happen you never married In-foref" asked
"I diiuiio," drawled Uncle Harry. 'I've
bad marriage feelings come over me lots o
times, lint they never lasted long 'noiigh
for me ter get anywheres."

of!ke buildings on Dearborn street )e-lei-day

your whole stock of those Infernal things?'
The boy had been standing on the side

his mouth, stopping only when somebody
wanted to buy one and In-ginning again
with renewed energy when the sale was
He counted up the whistles he had on

He turned over his entire stock, pocketed

The sidewalk directly below wa black
with a struggling mass of hoys. Each boy
was loaded down with calliope whistle
and each was blowing one of the lustru
menus of torture with all his might The
uproar wits frightful and getting worse
Then the peaceful, happy look faded out
of that middle- aged man's face. He shut
down the window, closed his desk, put on
his hat and overcoat, went out nf the

There was once a robber in Cairo who
fell from the second story of a house he
was trying to enter and broke his leg (said
Charles Dudley Warner recently at the
Aliline club on story teller's night) He
went to the cadi and complained The
man's window wa badly made and he
wanted Ju-tlce The cadi said that was
reasonable, and he summoned the owner of
the house The owner confessed that the
house was poorly built, but cliilined that
the carpenter was to blame and not he.
This struck the cadi a miiiiiI logic, and
he scut for the carpenter 'The charge Is,
ala. ton true." ahl the carpenter, "hut
the masonry wa at fault and I couldn't
Ilia good window ' So the cadi, impressed
with the reasonableness of the argument
sent for the mason The mason pleaded
guilty, but explained that a pretty girl in
a blue gown had passed the building while
ho was at work, and that his attention had
been diverted from his duty. The radi
thereupon demanded that the girl Ih
brought before him
"It is true," she said, "that I um pretty
but It's no rault or mine. If my gown at
tracted the mason, the dyer should be put)
Ished and not I." "ljulte true," said the
cadl, "send for the dyer' The dyer wits
brought to the bar and pleaded guilty
That settled It. The cadi told the rubber
to take the guilty wretch to his house and
hang him from theihsirsill, and the popu
lace rejoiced that Justice had been done
Hut pretty soon the crowd returned to the
cadi's house, complaining that the dyer
wits too long to be properly hanged from
his doorslll "Oh. well," sjild the cudl, who
by that lime wa sullering with ennui, "go
