ANY AMOUNT OF FUN.
Hut Hi l)ul I.lck.-.l Him for It, Coolly,
Old Sam Johnson, who lives down
in a Kennebec county town, is about
t he sourest and most straitlaced fellow
you ever aw, says the Lewiston Jour
nal. The other day he heard an awful
clatter out on a long hill near his
house. He got out to the scene just in
time to see his son Jed mount the ox
eart. hold up the tongue ami coast
down the hill with a thunderous roar
and a cloud of dust. The old man
started on the trail down the hill. pick
ing up a club on the way and yelling
for Jed to come back and take a lick
ing. Hut the nearer he got to the
trembling Jed the more the real nov
elty and humor appealed to him.
When he got to the foot of the hill he
was grinning like a "chessy cat," as
Jed afterward declared.
"What in timenation you doin with
that ox cart, Jed?"
"By gorry, dad. I'm a-slidin' down
hill in er, dad; and it's more fun 'an
de Injuns. Jest help me toost 'er up
hill and take a ride," said Jed, taking
courage from his father's grin.
"You sassy imp," sputtered Sam;
"I'm a good mind to welt you."
"Oh, dad, come on; it's slather9 of
"Not by a darned shot! And 'sides,
some one may see me."
"(lit out; they won't neither. Take
holt here an1 well run 'er up hill."
The old man couldn't resist. Chuck
ling, he helped push the cart up hill;
chuckling still, he crawled in, and he
tittered as he told Jed to "hold tight
an' steer straight."
Away they went. But they had just
got under headway when a team came
jogging around a bend in the road at
the foot of the hill. The old ox cart
roared down in its headlong rush. A
wicked smash-up seemed imminent.
The frightened Jed, bewildered by a
volley of squawks and yells, yanked
the tongue about, and the Hying eart
sheered for the fields. It careered
wildly, hopped the highway gutter,
crashed over a stone wall and came to
a wrecked standstill, bottom upward.
Jed and the old man were beneath.
It was six weeks before Johnson got
the crick out of his back and recovered
the use of his battered members. His
first duty at the end of those six weeks
was to lick Jed, not passionately or in
temperate!', but thoroughly, consci
entiously, earnestly, according to a
carefully matured plan and determina
tion. LEFT HIS VOICE BEHIND.

The curtain wa down, the house
was empty, the last few patrons were
struggling out of the California
Theatre, and all the lights were out.
Chief Usher Williams was coming
down the main staircase when a figure
darted past him in the gloom, says the
San Francisco Examimr.
"Where are you going?" he called,
anil he grabbed the stranger by the
The man struggled madly, but never
uttered a sound.
"Where in thunder are you going
to?" again asked Williams. "Don't you
know the show is over and we're lock
ing up the house?" And he dragged
the man down a few steps into the
light of the lobby.
Meanwhile the intruder gesticulat
ed wildly; his eyes rolled like marbles
and he hissed at Williams like a snake.
Suddenly he bent over to the usher.
"1 lost my voice," said he in an al
most inaudible whisper; "left it up
stairs. Goin' up ter find it!"
Williams gaped in amazement, let
go his grip on the man and followed

among the seats the stranger stooped
down and picked up something.
"Found your voice yet?" called Wil
liamft. "Yes, I'm all right now."
The chief usher nearly dropped. The
voiceless stranger spoke with all the
metallic resonance of a bassoon.
"What the dickens is your" voice
made of. anyhow?" he asked, as he
piloted the stranger down-stairs.
"Silver," replied he in the same
stentorian tone. "See; here it is. I

Sunset Cox in 1830.
"The first time I ever saw Samue
Sullivan Cox, known as Sunset Cox
was in 1850," said Thomas Kuick to
St. Louis Chronicle reporter.
"I was then superintendent of
bridges on the national turnpike in
Ohio and Cox was making a tour of
taverns on the road delivering political
"The turnpike in those days was the
great highway between the hast and
the West. It was thronged night and
day with teams from every part of
Ohio, and country taverns, with big
wagon yards, wern located ten miles
"Every night these taverns were
crowded with teamsters and travelers
and Cox spoke at every one of them,
beginning at the Indiana line and end
ing at the Pennsylvania border.
"Mr. Cox was a young slip of a fellow
with realdudish ways, but his speech
es were so inexpressibly funny that he
captured the hearts of the rough team
sters, who carried his fame to every
part of the state, and as long as he
lived they were always his solid
"Kx-Oovernor Allen once mane a
tour of those taverns and made friends
that stood by him for vears. and I have
no doubt but that that inlkience still
existed and aided in electing him gov

A Dog That Tells the Hours.
Col. F. N. Barksdale of the Passenger
Department of the Pennsylvania rail
road has a dog that can tell the time
of tne day. Col. Barksdale has a very
line cloc k that strikes only on the hour
and then very slowly. The Col. got in
to the way' of making the dog tap with
his foot at each stroke of the clock. He
got so he would do so without being told.
Just before the clock strikes it gives a
little cluck, and whenever the dog
heard this he would prick up his ears,
raise his paw and gently tap his paw
at each strike without being told. After
awhile he got so that wnen anyone
clucked like the clock he would get in
to position and wait for the strokes.
He was for a long time confused at
not hearing the clock, but after av. ' H :
began tapping his paw anyway. The
remarkable point is that after a while
he remembered how many strokes
were due at each succeeding hour, so
that now when the Colonel clucks he
gets into position and taps the num
ber of strokes the clock should make
next time. Thus, at any time after 10
o'elock h taps eleven times; after 4
o'clock, five times, etc. Some learned
scientists are fxoinr to investigate the
matter to see whether the dog actually
possesses reasoning faculties. Col.
Barksdale will not part with the dog
under any conditions. BMfonic (Pa.)
