li(lrTt Hpit on tti Fuse.
A good story has been told of a lisp
ing ollicer having been victimized by a
brother ollicer who was noted for his
cool deliberation and strong nerves
and of his "getting square" with him
in the following maimer: The cool
joker Capt. Bluckcney- was always
quizzing the lisping ollicer a lieuten
antfor his nervousness, and said one
day at mess. "Why, nervousness is
all nonsense; I tell you no brave man
is ever nervous."
"Well," inquired his lisping friend,
"how would you act thpothing a thell

taken shelter from a company of tharp

at his brother-officers. "Why, take it
cooly and spit on the fusee."
The party broke up and all retired.
The next morning a number of soldiers
were assembled on parade, when along
came the lisping lieutenant. Lazily
opening his eyes he remarked to a
cluster of officers: "I want to try an

Saying this, he walked deliberately
into the captain's quarters, where a
fire was burning on the hearth, and
placed in its hottest part a powder
canister and instantly retreated. There
was but one door of egrees from the
quarters and that opened on the pa

look at the canister, comprehended the
situation, and in a moment made for
the door, but it was fastened on the

Not a moment was to be lost; the
captain had at first snatched up a
blanket to cover himself with; but
soon dropping it, he raised the win
dow, ana out he bounded, sans every
thing but a very short undergarment,
and thus, with hair almost on end, he
dasled on to a full parade-ground.
The shouts which hailed him brought
out the whole of the occupants of the
barracks to see what was the matter,
and the dignified captain pulled a ser
geant in front to hide himself.
"Why didn't you thpit on it?" in
quired the lieutenant.
"Because there was no sharpshoot

small boy at supper one evening re
cently, "I saw Johnny Baker with a

did he get it?" inquired the father.
"W'y, papa, he said his papa gave it to
him. Don't you think that was a big
lot of money for a little boy to have?"
"Altogether too much; I think." "That's
just w hat I tdld him, papa, but he said
it suited him pretty well and he was
going to get another next week." The
boy waited a minute for a paternal re
sponse, but it didn't oome. "I say,
papa," he continued, "do you think iu
cents is too much for a boy to have?"
"Why, no. That would be" reasonable
enough." "That's what I told John

didn't have it. and I told him I'd ask

DETERMINED TO WIN.
The Woman I'awnitil Her Goat to Get
Money for Her Lawsuit.
"My first case," said a well-known
Harlem law er to a Commercial Adver
tiser man, "was an unique one. An
Irish family of the name of Murphy,
living up on the rocks in one of the
fast-disappearing remnants of Shanty
town, were fraudulently evicted from
their tumbledown cabin by a rascally
landlord. The practical head of the
household was the wife, ami she de
termined to light the matter out.
"For three weeks the Murphys, chil
dren, furniture and all, lived in the
back' yard of their former home with
nothing between them and heaven but
a flimsy tent made of old sheets, while
Mrs. Murphy tramped around town
looking for a lawyer who would take
their case for nothing.
"One day she charged into my office
and told me her story with the stereo
typed exactness that comes from fre
quent repetition. The case seemed to
be a worthy one, and as I wasn't over
burdened with work I agreed to take
it free of charge and reinstate the
Murphys in their dilapidated home
stead. "She wanted to get out a free sum
mons against the landlord and waive
several other small but necessary ex
penses, but I told her it would be
more politic to pay these, as the total
would not amount to
"'Foive dollars,' she cried, 'divil a
cint have the Murphys seen since me
husband losht his job wan month ago,
and the lasht blissed thing thim pawn
brokers '11 take they've got already.'
"When I offered to loan her the
money she went into such a rage that
I apologized abjectly.
"'Be the powers,' she exclaimed afler
pacing the floor for about ten minutes.
I forgot wan thing! Wait, mister,
an' I'll be back in an hour.'
"She kept her word, and just as I
was closing up shop for the day she
reappeared with her hands full of sil
ver, which she poured upon my desk.
"Mrs. Murphy,' I queried, where'
did 3'ou get this? I thought your
last valuable had been pawned?'
"'Yis,' she replied with a gleam of
triumph in her gray eyes, i very thing,
excipt the goat. I tuk auld Nanny,
whose milk me childer has lived npon,
over to the Kenneys, and they lint me

She came in daintily, and laid a
manuscript tied with a blue riblxjn on
the editor's desk, says the Detroit Free
Press. He looked up at her question

continued to look. "I write iioetry
sometimes," she said tremulously, but
with a hope grown upon his kindly
look. "I beg your pardon." he said,
canting his head over to one side, a
if his ear were out of repair. "I write
poetry sometimes, sir," she repeated
softly and insinuatingly, as she pushed
the bine ribbon a little nearer his
hand. She was just as pretty and as
sweet as ever, but his face grew hard.
"You do?" he said coldly. "Yes, sir,"
and she trembled again. "Well, you
ought to f. a-hamcd of yourself.
