A stranger strolling along the street
of a Nebraska town concluded ho
would try 11 11 experiment. A wagon
was standing near the sidewnlk mid
the strnuger walked oror to it, shook
one of the whcel-i of the vehicle nnd
examined It with gieat care, but did
not say a word. A man coming along
the streut noticed the action of the
stranger, stopped and then stepped out
and looked the wheel over with eare.
Two men coming along the walk from
the opposite direction, noticed two
men xainining the wagon ivhoei ami
slopped. They both eame over and
began to i . uninn the wheel for them
selves Haifa di zen men over on the
opposite corner saw the men looking
at the wagon and the six of them camu
over to see what was the matter. All
of them crowded in, shook tlte wheel
and made a critical examination of
each spoke as well as the felloo nnd
the. A crowd at the corner a block
away seeing the increasing crowd
about the wagon eamo on the run to
see what was up. In four minutes tlio
street was so crowded that a farmer
who had come in with a load of corn
couldn't gut through The stranger by
this time had slipped out buttlio crowd
continued to gather. One man was
limmml no acainst the wairou until
two of his ribs were cracked nnd a man
who had lieat t trouble had a fainting
spull hi the center of the crowd. And
the stranger who had started the whole
business standing nt a distance chuck
led softly to himself as ho muttered:
"It is curious how many blamed fools
there are in tho world who hnven'tany
idea of what they aro looking for."
Moral: Tho average man is ill ways
leady to run after a crowd whether ho
has tho slightest iden as to what he is
running for or not.

A Nebraska lad who had been ex
ceedingly careless about hlsattironnd
not over particular about his person
was observed one day by his paternal
ancestor carefully washing his neck
and cleaning tho accumulations of soil
nut of tho recesses of his cars. Then
tho old man, who remembered a good
many things that happened when ho
was 11 boy himsolf, handed his son a
dollar and a quarter, saying: "That
will buy two scats, ray son, and also
tho lemonade for both of you." A sort
of sunset glow camo over tho faco of
tho boy, but ho took tho cash and then
asked in a hesitating way: "But how
did you know, dad?"
"My son, I bavo never known tbo sign
to fail when a boy gets to tho placo
whero ho washes his neck and tars
without somebody tolling him to do it
ho has a girl and a circus in his mind."
A man who wore whiskers under his
chin and wboso pants lacked about
tbreo inches of hitting his cowbido
shoes, walked up to a man who was
shifting a little ball about tbo si.o of a
number 22 bullet from one shell to an
other. The man with tho alfalfa whis
kers watched tho man with great in
terest, but it was observed that bo did
not put up a cent. And tho man who
was looking for suckers called to tbo
Reuben and asked if ho would not liko
to try his luck on guessing which shell
the little ball was under.
"No'p, I guess not," said tbo Reuben.
"Never lied no sort uv luck bottin' on
things, somo way or uthor."
"Well just try it once," said tho
smooth man, "your luck amy change."
"Naw, I don't think I bad better,"
said the man with the 1103k whiskers
as be displayed a roll of bills, "want to
buy a hosa and just got about enough
here to pay fur it don't want to squan
der none uv it on games."
Then the eyes of the smooth man
glistened, far ho wanted that roll of
bills and he resumed: "But, my friend
you might make one try. Don't risk
all of the cash you'vo got and if you
lose you can quit."
"Well." said the Reuben, in a besi-
