Shrewd Simon Short sewed shoes.
Seventeeu summers, speeding storms,
spreading sunshine, successively saw
Simon's sm all, shabby shop still stand
ing stanch, saw Simon's selfsame
squeaking sign still swinging, specify
ing: 'Simon's Short, Smithfield's
surviving shoemaker, shoes sewed,
Simon's spry, sedulous spouse, Sally
Shtrt, sewed shirts, stitched sheet",
Simon's six stout sturdy sons
Seth, Sauiuci, Saul Seradach, Silas
sold sundries. Sober Seth sold sugar,
starch, spice; simple Simon's sold
saddles, stirmps, screws; sagacious
Stephen sold silks, satits, shawles;
skeptical Saul sold silver salvers: sel
fish Shadrsah sold salves, shoe-slriugs,
soap, saws, skates; Silas sold Sally
Shoit's stuffed sofas.
Soms seven summers since Simon's
second son Samuel saw Sophia Soph
onia Springs, Sim showed strange
Sam seldom staid storing, selling
saddcls. Sim sighed eorrowfully,
sought Sophia Sophronia's society,
sung several surreptitious serenades
Simon stormed, scolded severely;
said Sam seemed so silly singing such
shameful, senseless songs,
Strange Earn should slight such
splendid summer sales! Strutting
spendthrift! Shatterbrained simple
ton! 'Softly, softly, sire," said Sally
"Sam's smitten, Sam's spied some
'Sintimental schoolboy!" Miarled
Simon; "Smitten! stop such stuff"
Speaking so, Simon Fent Sally's
snuff-box spinning, seize! Sally's
scissors, smashed Sally's spectacles
scattering several spools."
"Sneaking scoundrel! Sam's shock
ing sickness shall surcease!"
--'Scowling Simon stopped specking,
starting swiftly shopward,
Sail sighed sadly. Summoning
Sam, she spoke f-rceet sympathy.
"Sam," said sne, Sire Simon seem
ed singularly snappy; so, sonny, stop
strolling streets, stop . smoaking sc
gars, spending specie superfluously,
stop sprucing so stop .singing seren
ades, stop short! Sell saddles, sonny,
sell saddles sensibly: sec Sophia So
phronia Spiigg soon she's sprightly;
she's stable; so solicit, sue, secure
Sophia tpef-dily, Sam.',
"So soon? Shall Sally's son Sam so
surely seek soup so soon?" said Sam
tanding stock still.
"So soon, surely said S ally, smiling
specially since sire shows such spirist"
So Sam, somewhat scared, sauntered
slowly. Shaking stupendously Sam
soliloquizes: "Sophia Sophronia Short,
Samual Short's spouse, sounds splen
did! Suppose she should say say,
she sha'n't she sha'n't she sha'n't!"
Soon Sam spied Sophia, starching
shirts, singing softly. Seeing Sam
she stopped, started, saluted Sam
smilingly. Sam stammered shocking
"Spl-spl-splendid summer season.
'Somewhat sultry." suggested So
phia. "Sar-sar-tin, Sophia," said Sam.
Silence seventeen seconds.
"Selling saddles still, Sam?"
Sar-sar-tin," said Sam, starting sud
denly. "Season's somewhat sudorific,
said Sam, stealthily stanching steam
iag sweat. Speaking sensibly.
"Sartin,"said Sophia smiling signi
ficantly. "Sip some sweet sherbet,
Sam." Silnce sixty seconds.
"Sire shot sixty Sheldrakes Satur
day." said Sephia'
Neb., Friday, July 5,
"Sixty? Sho!" said Sam. Silence
'See Sister Susan's sunflowers,"
aid Sophia, socially scattering such
Sophia's sprightly saucincM stim
ulated S4m strangely; so Sam sudden
ly spoke sentimentally.
"Sophia," said Sam, spontaneously.
"Susan's sunflowers seem saying:
"Samuel Short. Sophia Sophronia
Sprigg, stroll mrcnaly. Seek some
sequestcd spot, ?rrae sylvan shade.
Spaikling spring shall sing soul
rihooting strains; sweet songsters shall
silence secrete sighings, superangelic
sylphs shall '" Sophia snicker
ed; so Sam'stopped.
"Sophia," said Sam, solemnly.
".S.uu," said Sonhia.
"Sophia, stop smiling; Sam Short's
sincere. 'Sam's seeking some sweet
Sophia stood silent.
"Speak. Sophia, speak! Such sus
pense stimulates sorrow."
"Seek Sire, Sam seek sire." said
So Sam sought Sire Spriggs.
Sire Spriggs said: "Sartin."

There is a wealthy maa in Buffalo wlo,
ever since he became well-to-do, has been
pestered by the entreaties of local insurance
agents to toko out a policy la favor of his
wifo and littlo ones. Not Ion? ago, says the
Buffalo Courier, be determined to bo re
venged on them. He called on a certain
agent and told him thnt at last he was
thinking seriously of taking out a policy,
say for 10,000, but that before deciding the
matter bo wished to examine the induce
ments of tvrs cr thrco other companies.
' Certainly," said the agent, "but do coma
and dine with mo at the CTlyClub to-moi
row." "With pleasure.' Tho rich man
walked away, and visiting throo or four
mora agents told them the same story
that ho was thinking of taking out a poW
icy of 110,000 or so, but was not qui de
ckled yet in which compnyho aiftttld in
sure. Each and all of them extended him
an earnest invitation to "Coma and dine
with me to-morrow evening," or "What do
you say to a little supper at Blank's, where
we can talk it over ?" or, "I'm going to open
at bottle of Madeira to-morrow evening.
Come around and I'll explain our plan in
XttIL" The wealthy man winked to him
self as ho left theso agents, and accepted
all their civilities, and for two weeks his
fsjaily hardly saw him, f jr ho continued ts
htHfrtJ and procrastinate, and tho agents
sontinucd to dine him and wine sirs,
until at length, having enjoyed ha
Bcjf immensely at tno expense of
the insurance companies, he one day
sat down in his omco and wrote each of
the agents a little note, in which he stated
that be had "been convuvcod of thebettsff
advantages to be gained by insurmg hi
smother company," sad regretted that ha
toould not take out a policy with yen.
The agents each read this note with tsars
In their eyes and swear-words on their
lifs,snd placed s sum ranging from Kis

A story in told of a postmaster whose
lack of knowledge of working bis own
"nest" lost him an increase of 8100 on his
salary next year. When ho seat his returns
is be lacked 31 cents of tho amount called
for by the law to permit an adjustment of
his salary. His reports showed the yearly
reoelpuofhisoaoetobo (2,089.20. As the
department allows a fraction over a half
dollar to be counted as a dollar, the post
master would nave been tlOO morsia his
accket If he had had shrewdness enough te
toy 31 cents' worth of stamps out of his
swa pocket. Since he sent his report ha
has learned his mistake, and every body hi
the county now can lock him. His wasths
