A little outcabt kitten which found
its way into the Boston post office
four years ago has become one of the
notable cats of the city. She is per

elevators. She seems to know the
rank of every official, and conducts
herself with corresponding dignity
Other cats she Ignores, and she is a
terror to dogs, of which she has never
shown the slightest fear. It is quite

A banker sauntering home for his
dinner saw a $10 bill lyintr on the
curb stone. Of course he picked it up
and took the number in order to fiud
the owner. While at home, his wife
remarked that the butcher had sent
in a bill for meat amounting to $10.
The only money he hid with him was
tho bill he had found, which he cave
to her and ahe paid tho butcher. The
butcher paid it to tLe farmer for a
calf, and the farmer paid it to the
merchant, who in turn paid it to the
washerwoman; and she owing the
banker a note of $10, went to the
b inker and paid the note. The
banker recognized the bill as the
one he had found, and which, unto
date had settled $50 of debt. On a
more careful examination he found
the bill was counterfeit Now, will

The only question is what can bo done with it. Its out of style

Why, that will make a beautiful collarette; just the thing for fall
