A pot hound conceived a great ml

tho hound concluded that what ho
ticcdi'd was to luivo his ears trimmed
and his tail amputated in otdcr to gel
into tho fox ten lor class. Tho trim

pretty tough on thn hound, but ho
stood It and when his ears hnd honied
up and the scab was oil the stub of his
tail, he hunted up a fox tcitler and
ptesohlcd an application to be admit

when the tenter looked the hound over
it burst into a laugh.
"What seems to be tho matter with
you," said the hound in an irritated
voico. "Doesn't my nppoaranco strike
you as the con cut thing?"
"Friendly chump," said the fox ter

Then tho hound, discouraged by
the turn down of tho fox tvnier, wont
back to his own ynrd and ran into n
bunch of not hounds, who weie work

When tho penitent and sad hearted
c'tnine sought out an old time acquaint

into standing nmong the hounds the
hitler nnswcied: "It Is no go my

A well dressed woman went into a
physician's ofiice and said that she hnd
come to osnsult him about her blood,
saying that she featcd she might have
been affected by a poison ivy while she
was strolling through tho park admir
ing the works of nature. "Tell mo
doctnh," said she in an attested man
ner, "what is the mattah with me, and
must I cease to gratify my poetic tem
peraments by strolling among the
flowa's and trees?"
"No madam," said the physiuian,
who was a plain spoken man, "you
can stioll among the fl wers and the
trees all you like if you will feed upon
sulphur and annoint yourself with this
ointment. All that is the matter with
you U that you have the itch."
Then, with a look of indignation, tho
woman flounced out of the office and
went to see another doctor, who told
hor in scientific terms that she was
slightly troubled with an exznma. And
she paid that physician a good tound
fee and went away satisfied that ho un
derstood his business, but from that
time on she never lost an opportunity
to put a few blocks In tho way of the

A man who had political ambitions
tried for a good, many years to get an
ofllco of some kind aid after button
holing and giving the politician's hug
and making all sorts of piomises about
what he would do if he was nominated
and elected, he finally made it But
after the man was elected his head bo
gan to swell and bo gathered the im
pression into his' mind that he was
nearly the wholo works and that ho
could dictate the politics of tho entire
slate. He also glow lordly and when
ho spoke to a constituent ho did it in a
condescending mauner ns if be wero

who had been elected to get jobs for

American egotism. They donot under
stand that it is egotism, simply faith in
one's self and one's undertakings, that
keeps the world moving, that makes
all the great and little successes. The
man in business who has no confidence
that ho is going to make it pay will
never do the right thing in the right

events. He will fail to say the right

those with whom he comes in contact.

a legitimate way, a confidence man.

purposes, it might be well to remem- '
