not proceeded far
before his atten

Vy u huge box on top of which was a
board sign, which read as follows:
LOOK OUT TOR THK BEAR.
Of course Mr. Oatcake could not re
sist tho temptation of taking a Rqulnt
nt bruin, so ho ambled up to tho box
rather nervously and peeped through
the barn that had been nailed
across the top to keep Air. Bear
safe. Finding that the bo was
entirely empty Mr. Oatcako be
gan to scratch his head. How had the
bear got out? Then someone yelled
April fool. Mr. Oatcake allowed that It
was a good one.
Later In the day Mr. Oatcake took In
tho dime museum. He Interviewed tho
fat girl, talked populism with tho
bearded lady, visited the chamber of
horrors, and had enjoyed himself gen
erally when ho saw the following sign:
SI3B TUB Q HE AT
Draw Daek tho Curtain.
He drew back tho curtain. Then ho
saw a big red brick and turned a doublo
somersault In his hasto to get away.
Ho hadn't counted on being April
fooled twice in ono day.
After leaving tho museum Mr. Oat
cako thought he would take a drink or
two, and nt onco proceeded to a con
venient liquor dispensary. "I'll tako a
beer," ho said, putting a nickel on the
bar; "been April-fooled twice and hato
concluded to drown my feelings." Ho
was Just the individual that the bar
tender with the decoy beer glass was
looking for. It was produced in short
order, and Mr. Oatcako showed himself
to be rather an adept at tho art of blow
ing off tho foam. Then lie expanded his
capacious maw, preparatory to taking a
gulp. But It wouldn't gulp worth a cent
It was only an artificially colored glaas
with real foam. Farmer Oatcako coa
cluded that ho had better hitch up and
start home. Nearing n railway grado
crossing within tho city limits ho saw
a man frantically waving a red lias
and telling him to stop.
"No ycr don't, ycr gol darned flannol

Three pretty young ladles answered

three Mian Browns In the boarding

"Thcro Is no first name," said Hetty;
"only Miss Brown."
The three fair .Miss Browns looked
at the box In a brown study. It was
certainly meant for a Miss nrown In

Ho did not stop to smoko his usual

ho reached tho door Wllllo eamo up to
him with upturned faco and said:
"Willlo wants to kiss papa. Willi)
Tho father's heart was touched and
ho regretted his actions. Riding down
town in the train ho read in his morn

by being run over whllo at play by a
passing truck. Ho imagined tho sccno,
and it was Impressed upon his mind.
Then his mind ran on with strange im

killed. What If when ho arrived homo
at night Wllllo should bo dead dead
before ho could tell his boy how much
ho loved him, and how sorry he was for
his cruel conduct.
Of courso thero was not one chnnco in

that they eventually will tako the

In Naples girls 11 years old and over
assemble onco every year In one of the
churches of that city, nnd the unmar
ried men, who so desire, go there and
cliooso wives. Tho proposed society
will carry out a similar arrangement
here, except that tho girls who desire
to assemble in a church to bo thus
chosen will hnve to register with the
society three, months ahead of tho
date, that tho society may satisfy it
self that they are girls of good moral
character, and the men who nro to
apply at the church on these occasions
to select brides will bo required to
register tnreo months prior to tho
date of choosing, that the society may
investlgato their characters for tho
purpose of ascertaining If they are In
dustrious and temperate. Only men
who have these (utilities will be al
lowed to choose a wife. Those who
register will bo informed fifteen days
in advance of their standing. Men
will be required to pay a registration
fee of 91, but girls will be allowed to
register free. Tho intended brides
will probably be required to wear
white Instead of black, as in Naples.
The principal object of the society
is to afford girls who desire to marry
an opportunity to secure temperate,
and Industrious husbands.
