TLe manager of the Weeping Water
Republican still advertises the agencj
for "Jo-Hc" by himself for the benefit ot
his customers. It is said that this fa

make one "act the bog in elegant shape.'
Tnc Joker has been so taken up with
business affairs this week, keeping in out
of the rain and wondering how the
electric motor company was baring such
astonishing success without bis adrico,
that be has hardlj bad time to gire his
mind play on unobscrred points, but
this morning be discovered the sand-bar
had whiskers green ones.
The Jokkr, haying noticed a solemn
expression On the countenance of "the
Judge" ventured to remark "Judge,
what makes you look so sad?" He
seemed consoled to note the interest
taken in him, but replied somewhat piti
fully, "Have I not reason to be so, when
my fellow countrymen are acting the
hog in elegant shape on every hand?"
Tub Jokeb is compelled to again ob
serve that Plattsmouth is booming in
elegent shape. It is not a boom of to
day or tomorrow but a boom of every
day next week and the week after till it
"beats the the Jews" how it ever got
started. But pt her roll, as soon as Thk
Joker is able to comprehend the fuag
nitude of it he may speak of it without
so much astonishment.

The action of that New Jersey bank In
dumping $4,000 in silver on its floor in
payment of its checks in the hands of a
rival institution brings up the question
of legal tenders. Gold has always been
legal tender in the United States. With
a brief interval previous to the passage
of the Bland act silver dollars liave been
also. Greenbacks are, but gold and sil
ver certificates are not, except on cus
toms, taxes and public dues. National
bank notes are not legal tenders, and can
and have often been refused in payment
of debt. Subsidiary coin is legal tender
only in limited quantities.
A gentleman went to the stamp win
dow of the poetofHce in a neighboring
city and called for 100 one cent stamps,
tendering in payment 100 onocent pieces.
''Those are not lega) tender n any
such quantities," growled tho stamp
clerk; "I refuse to accept them."
"You do, eh?" answered tha gentle
man. "Weill rfye me one stamp," at
the same tune shoving out a penny. The
tamp was forthcoming.
"Now, give me a stamp." He got it.
"See here," said the clerk, "how many
stamps do you want? You are keeping
twenty people- waiting."
"Ph. I always; keep witliin (he law,"
responded the gentleman. "Another

A suggcativo fact connected with tho
new army register is that it 6hovs no
fewer than ninety-bix first lieutenants on
the active- list who have service in tho
civil war to their credit. The rank and
pay of a first lieutenant are not an enor
mous remuneration for tho length and
value of the service which Borne of these
ofilcers have rendered. The retired list
shows also thirty -eight first lieutenants
who have seen war service, and while the
causes of retirement have been various,
yet they include some compulsory retire
ments for age. Only a year or two ago
occurred the retirement of a first lieuten
ant at the age of 04. Of course these ex
ceptional cases result from the fact that
some volunteer officers received commis
sions in the regular army after the war
when already considerably advanced in
years, and also non-commissioned officers
averaging older than the Military acad
emy graduates have been made second
lieutenants. But whatever tho facts, it
is remarkable that with the war a quar

and live .reminds, a contributor to The
Oxford Advertiser of a veteran of the
"unpleasantness" of twenty years ago,
who regularly draws his check from a
poetofHce on the banks of the Androscog
gin. At one time wliile in the enemy's
country the order "no foraging" was is
sued. About dusk our hero might have
been seen on a very rQPi4 retreat from
the rear pf a. farm house near by, closely
pursued by a gander with wings out
spread, whose feet seemed to scarcely
touch the ground, and from whose beak
issued angry screams. The fugitive was
not at all reassured by the cries of the
owner, "Hold on, soldier; he won't hurt
you!" The soldier never, stopped until
he reached his friends, who, of course,
relieved him from his pursuer with the
aid of the butt of a muskeg Who, re?

Here is tne description in a London
newspaper of a violet luncheon given by
a Chicago girl to her girl friends: "The
luncheon, consisted of ten courses served
by a caterer. The menu was matchless.
The Chicago people live welL There
was a long, flat, narrow mirror down the
table, surrounded by a. border of blue
and. whia violets edged with a fringe of
maiden, hair ferns. The corners of the
cloth were tied with white and violet
satin ribbon. The young hostess (whose
mother did not appear) wore white cash
mere with cuffs and collar of violet vel
vet, and she carried a white lace fan on
which Was. painted violets. By the plate
pf each guest was a small gilded wicker
basket filled with violets white and blue.
A string band, harp and violins, played

Two Doe Stories.
My wife was followed a few days ago.
while going through a new house, by
our bull terrier pug and by a collie dog.
Mi'tgi ta pug, became frantic when he
was unable to climb a high step. The
collie was deeply troubled, but in a few
moments lifted Mug up the .step by the
nape of his neck.
For a number of years my father made
western trips of several weeks duration.
His dog Jack would invariably meet
him at tho station on his return. The
-iystery to us was how the dog could
tell of his arrival, unless, indeed, he,
understood our talk pf tho day before.
