A PARALYZING! PUN.
A MISER'S HOARD.
An Old Franobraau'a Queer Hiding Ptaoe
fur Ilia Money.
The relatives and heirs of an old
man who recently died in a small
French village have to congratulate
themselves on the circumstances that
his death took place during the winter,
and that, consequently, while waiting
in his cottage for the departure of the
funeral cortege to the church and tho
cemetery, a fire was made to warm the
room. The defunct was in humble
circumstances, aud though of athrifty,
careful disposition, nobody thought he
had left any property worth mention
ing behind him. Tho day of the funer
al being n very cold one, the old man's
btore of firewood was drawn upon
more freely, possibly, than tho thritfty
cottager himself would have approved
of, and this led to a remarkable dis
covery. As the flames from the crack
ling logs shot up, one of the clumps of
wood split In two, and out of it, to tho
surprise of the jisspmb.lcd -relatives.
A Mean Man Takei Advantage of Kvety
Occasion to Inflict Them.
Ho was one of those punsters who
make pons even ut funerals. Just like
the man that John Dennis had in mind
when, in 161)1, he wrote': "A man who
would make so vllo a pun would nut
Iscruplo to pick n pochct." Ho makes
vile pans, mofctly, but hetnaku? a good
rone now-and then. A man who makes
many puns cannot help but inakp
good one once In awhile. -Tho particu
lar pun which is to be glton to Uu
public in thin paragraph was mado in
the oflloo of a certain official who has
white beard long And flowing. Tho
punster and a reportdr entered tho of
fice together and together spoke
to the afllolal. Tho reporter nb
tlccd a hair on tho otflclal's shoulder
and said: "Mr. ' , thero'a a long,
white hair on your coat; I'll tako it
off." The punster saw that his chance
had come, and, gathering himself as a
bloodthirsty mosquito docs when about
to blto an innocent maiden, blurted
out: "White hair It away." Neither
the official nor the reporter spoko for
a moment. They wero paralyzed by
tho desfpVrato man's audacity.
Virginia and Ita Nickname.
Tht) authorities in tho colony of
Virginia, at the time of tho contest in
England between the Stuarts and
Cromwell, appear to havo been de
voted to the Stuarts, and whon the
Cromwelllan government threatened
to send a fleet to reduce the colony to
submission, its officials dispatched a
message to young Charles, who wafl
afterward King of England, under the
title of Charles II, but was then hiding
In France, Asking him to como over
and be king of Virginia. It is said
that Charles was on tho point of start
ing, when the collapse of the common
wealth und tho Cromwelllan roguno
took place, which sent him back to the
English throne. Charles never forgot
this devotion of Virginia to his for
tunes, and that colony was subse
quently classed with England, Scot
land and Ireland as one of tho main
portions of the empire. In this way
Virginia came to be known among the
American colonies as tho Old Dominion.
