ington. Willing to Sell Cheap. -
An amusing incident happened in a
southern city court the other day. A
Jew was on the witness stand testifying
against a negro who had stolen a pair of
pantaloons from his store.
"How much are the pants worth?"
asked Judge Thompson.
"Well, judge,1 responded the witness,
"it depends on the man who wants to
buy them. I Pell them to one in:. 11 fur mx
dollars, to another for five dollars, but
ycu can have them for four dollars."
"Sir," responded his honor, in a dis
gusted tone of voice, "I want you to tell
me what those pants are worth."
"Ah, judge," said the Israelite, "take
'em for three dollars if four dollars don't
"Look here," thundered the judge,
"if you dou't tell me the exact value of
those pants I will send you to jail for
contempt of court."
"Well, then, judge," pleaded the ob
tuse witness in a most insinuating tone
of voice, "take 'em for two dollars. It
is giving them away almost, but you
can have 'em for two dollars."
By this time the people in the court
room were convulsed with laughter,
and the judge himself was obliged tr
forget his disgust and join heartily
the laugh. He did not buy the "pants,"
however. Green Bag.
Reasoning Power of Ants.
One morning a gentleman of many
scientific attainments sat quietly and
alone at his breakfast. Presently he
noticed that some large black ants were
making free with the contents of the
sugar bowl. He drove them away, but
they soon returned, seemingly unwilling
to leave their sweetened feast. Again
they weie dispersed, only to return in
increased numbers. There was a lamp
hook directly above the center of the
table, and, to try their ingenuity, the
gentleman suspended the sugar bowl to
the hook with a cord, allowing it to
swing clear of the table about an inch.
First the sagacious little creatures
tried to reach it by standing on each
other's backs. After repeated efforts,
all of which were failures, they went
away and it was supposed that they had
given up in despair. Within a surpris
ingly short time, however, they were
seen descending the cord by dozens and
droppinsr themselves into the sugar
bowl. They had scaled the wall
traversed the ceiling and discovered an
other road to the treasure. St. Louis
Different Terms -for the Same Things.
Among the peculiarities of so called
pure English, nothing is more singular
than the difference between the names
ven to footwear. In America a boot
is something which comes nearly up to
the khee, while in England anything
above a low cut shoe is invariably de
scribed as a boot. The same peculiarity
exists in regard to hose. In England
the only two words used are stockings
and socks, the difference being entirely
in the length of the leg, and the word
half hose being purely American. In
the trade in this country there are three
distinctions the stocking, a sock and
half hose. There is no ribbed top to the
American sock, and there are other
technical differences which are unheard
of in the old country. St. Louis Globe-

On a lnsnch in front of the Clark
county (Ind.) almshouse on warm, sunny
days sits an aged man whose hilvery
beard is tangled and whose trembling
hands and faltering steps tell the story
only too plainly that the journey of lift
is nearly at an end. This is Johu Hicks,
a ioor, broken down old sinner, whose
only claim to distinction is that he hits
served fifty years in tho jienitentiary.
He was not a celebrated crook whose
cleverness baffled the police and made
his name a terror. He was only a hum
ble professional prisoner with neither
kith nor kin to worry over his singular
choice. No wife ever shared his lonely
hours and no prattling children ever
climbed upon his knees; no tailor ever
worried him with bills for clothing,
and he never took the trouble to form a
political opinion, because he never hail
an opportunity to vote.
Not long since a reiwrter visited tho
Indiana almshouse, and when he in
quired for "Old Man Hicks" he was told
that the venerable pauper was in his ac
customed place in the yard. He did
not seem surprised when the visitor
called him by name and made known
his mission. His eyes brightened as his
thoughts went back to his beloved cell,
but it was only for a moment. Then he
said calmly and quietly without any ap
parent regret for the wasted years of
"I suppose you want to hear the story
of my life. Everybody does, although
I do not see why they should take such
an interest in the affairs of an old man
they never knew and will never think of
again after they leave him. Well," he
continued, musingly, fumbling with the
nagged edge of his faded coat, "I was
born in Montgomery county, Va., eighty-six
years ago. My parents were nr
and died when I was but a child. I had
no brothers or sisters, and I went to live
with a neighbor, who taught me the
blacksmith trade when he found I would
not go to school. My master's name
was Neal, and he was fairly good to
me, but when I grew up I decided to
leave him and come to Indiana. For
awhile I drove a stage between Hamil
ton and Centerville, but I gave it up and
secured a place as stage driver for Beard
& Scott, between Salem and Livonia.
"One day while waiting for my din
ner at the house of a farmer named
Browrn I saw a pocketbook in a bureau
drawer that had been left open. It con
tained $160, which I at once took posses
sion of. I got three years for this, which
I served and went to Washington, Da
viess county, where I stole tfSOO from a
man whose name I dv. not remember,
I think it was Thomas, but it was such
a long while ago that I am not sure.
They gave me seven years for the offense,
and after serving six years I was par
doned by Governor Joe v right.
"When I got out I went to Bedford
and worked at my trade until they
arrested me for assaulting a woman. I
was innocent, but I never took the trou
ble to deny it and the jury gave me ten
years. Five years had been served be

guilty, and Governor Willard pardoned
me. ac muianapoiis 1 committeu a
burglary and was given three years.
Another burglary at Brookville brought
me four years and still another one at
Crawfordsville got me four years at the
Michigan City penitentiary.
"About this time I thought I would
try some other prison, and I went to
Louisville, Ills. Another alleged crim
inal assault was the cause of my serving
ten years at Joliet. My term expired
and I next fell at Hamilton, O., where
I served two years for burglary. After
ward I served in Pennsylvania and Ohio
again and then went back to Jefferson
ville. By this time I was old and I
longed for my cell in the Jeffersonville
prison. It was more comfortable than
any I had ever occupied, and in fact the
prison there is the most humane one in
the country. Well, I walked all the
way from Columbus to Jeffersonville,
and calling upon the late Captain Craig,
who was then deputy warden, I asked
him to give me a home in the prison.
saying I was too old to work and wanted
to spend my few remaining days there.
He said he could not do so, and I re
solved to make him do it.
"Going up to Paoli, in Orange coun
ty, I robbed a house and took good care
that they should catch me at it. The
case came to trial, and after I had told
the judge my story he kindly sentenced
me to five years. He would have made
it more, but he said he thought I could
not live longer than thai. I thanked
him and went to prison. But I was still
alive when the sentence expired, and
going to the northern part of the state I
robbed a man and got a year at Michi
gan City, ihen 1 came back to Jeffer

me here before I had a chance to steal

six feet tall and weighed 200 pounds. I
was probably the strongest man in the
state. My first sentence in Jefferson
