wna about 10 o'clock in the morning when
sho bustled Into a family' grocery on Third
avenue, and approached an Innocent look
ing sandy haired clerk with a stub pencil
over his ear.
"Is there butter In that jar?" she In
quired, tapping the vessel with her toe.
"Yes, madam," affirmed the clerk.
"I thought so," she said: "I can tell n
butter jar Instinctively."
"Yes' in," the clerk acquiesced.
"Where Is It from? Western reserved"
"Nor" and her feathers drooped n little.
"From Michigan, I suppose?"
She smiled with satisfaction.
"I thought it must be," she confessed.

An eccentric clergyman iu Cornwall has
been much annoyed by the way the regular
members of tho congregation had got of
looking around to take stock of Jate
comers. After enduring it for some time
he said on entering tho reading desk one
day: "Hrethreu, I regret to see that your
attention is called away from your reli
gious duties by your natural desire to see
who comes In behind you. I propose hence
forth to savo you the trouble by naming
each person who may cuter, aud I hope
that tho services will then be allowed to
proceed without Interruption."
He then began, "Dearly beloved," but
Enused half way to interpolate, "Mr. Stub
Ins, with his wife aud daughter."
Mr. Stubblus looked rather surprised,
but the minister, with perfect gravity, re
sumed his exhortation. Presently he
again paused. "Mr. Curtis and William
The abashed congregation kept their
eyes studiously bent on their books. Tho
service proceeded iu the most orderly man
ner, the parson interrupting himself every
now and then to name some newcomer.
At last he said, still with tho same perfect
gravity, "Mrs. Symous in a new bonnet."
In n moment he felt his mistake, but it
was too late. Every feminine head in the
congregation hod turned around. Chris

Iu the afternoon hu went down to tho
lumlicr yard and told thu puzzle to the
men theru assembled, and they all laughed
him to scorn and then figured on the
smooth side of thirty-six square feet of
lumber and had three fights without get
ting as far as Hicks had gouu in thu still
watches of the night. A husbandman who
drifted In to trade horses became Involved
and beat his steed all the way home.
The puzzle iiermeated every nook and
comer of thu village. Two popular mem
bers of the Y. M. C. A. slapped each
other's faces over it. Colonel Hooks pulled
the nose of a tourist to whom hu was try
ing to sell land, and all the lioys in town
fought over it.
Onu John P. Smith attacked thu wife of
his bosom with ferocity and a scytho and
knocked her Into thu well, where she
siccdilydrowncd. A mob chased Mr. Smith
thirteen geographic miles aud gave him five
minutes iu which to show cause why lie
should not be lynched, whereumn he ile-clai-ed
that thu demise of Mrs. Smith was
attributable to divine providence, aud a
stone over which sho had stumbled, the
same throwing her into thu well. His sole
Intention hud been to liestow upon her a
well merited castigatloii for introducing
thu relationship puz.lu into thu household,
thereby assassinating tho peacu aud har
mony of the same.
This announcement resulted iu a pro
longed and earnest debate upon thu part
of thu string baud, which continued until
tlru sheriff and nsso rescued Mr. Smith
and boru him to town. Court was in ses
sion at thu time and thu case camu up for
trial on thu morrow. It was dark when
thu jury was sent out. They canvased
the case thoroughly. Hicks, who was
among them, detailed thu puz.lu aud ex
hibited his tally sheet.
At 4 o'clock in tho morning thu door was
burst open and the jury fell down the
stairs fighting likedemous. Thustovuhuil

flames. The book aud ladder company
swirled up and ran over three gentlemen,
two of whom Immediately assaulted two
firemen, whereupon tho whole lxxly of the
latter attacked thu entire jury Impartially.
Tho alarm of firo aroused tho village aud
the majority of thu citizens appeared on
thu scene. Judge Ik-gad denounced the
firemen for rioting iu the face of the de
stroyer and was attacked by tho foreman
of thu company. Several citizens went to
thu assistance of the judge, aud threu men
whom hu had fined jumped iu to help thu
Aud thus the fight waxed. The fire was
forgotten. The rival editors wrangled aud
then fought, and their printers took sides.

A gale had sprung up, and before the II r-
had been got under control thu major pot -tlon
of thu business part of thu village was
Iu ashes. This threw many men out of
employment and they moved away soon
after. Others, seeing that theru would be
no boom for many moons, departed, Sev
eral capitalists who had been about to
maku investments Immediately foldid
theru tents. Thu grand jury found true

tho great fight, and they all fled like Un
