A celebrated Irish mined Inn wont in.
to a barber's shop to get shaved and,
untnng tlie barber out, hu determined
to have n little fun before his return.
So he tool; off his coat, put on it thin

The old gentleman look u elialr and
the comedian began to lather, expect
ing every moment the barber would
appear. Five minutes passed and n
tnrbcr. Five more and still no barber.
The Joker began to get desperate nnd

his brush he quickly changed bis coat
again, took his bat, and was about to
quietly step out behind the gentle
man's back when that worthy turned
his head and exclaimed:

The necessity of tipping with a lav
ish bund is strongly enforced in a res
taurant near the station at Pompeii.
In it prominent position is placed ti
gaudily framed sketch of the Interior
of the dining room, with two client
taking their departure. One of them,
u cowed looking individual, is strug
gling, into his overcoat, while two
waiters stand near him, the one smil
ing derisively ut the other, who dis
plays a tiny coin with it gesture of
llerce contempt. On the opposite sitlo
of the room a guest Is seen surrounded
by three waiters, one helping htm with
bis coat, another brushing his hat, the
third bowing obsequiously and holdim;
his walking stick.
The moral Is obvious, but nllownneo
Is made for the proverbial obtuseness
of northern nations, and underneath,

"The Results of Benevolence." London
A Coatly Comma.
A number of years ago when thtt
United States by its congress was mak
ing a tariff bill one of the sections
enumerated what articles should be ad
mitted free of duty. Among the many
articles specified were "nil foreign fruit
plants," etc., meaning plants imported
for transplanting, propagation or ex
periment. The enrolling clerk in copy
ing the bill accidentally changed tbv
hyphen in the compound word "fruit
plants" to a comma, making it reatL
"all foreign fruits, plants," etc. As u
result of this simple mistake for ti
year, or until congress could remedy,
the blunder, ull the oranges, lemon
bananas, grapes and other foreign
fruits were admitted free of duty. Thin
little mistake, which any one would b
liable to make, yet could have avoided
by carefulness, cost the government
not less than $2,000,000. A pretty cosi
ly comma that.
KIrnt Book Auction.
Speaking of auctions nnd auctloueei,
r book dealer toys: "The first book
auction In England of which wo kav
any record Is of a date as far back tm
1070, when the library of Dr. Seamim
was brought to the hammer. Preflxett
to tlie catalogue there Is an addrea
which thus begins: 'Header, It hath not
been usual here In England to make
sale of books by way of auction, or
who will give the most for them; bin.
it having been practiced in other coun
tries to the advantage of both buyer
and sellers, It was therefore conceive
(for the encouragement of learning) to
publish the sale of these books In this
manner of way.' "
When London la Silent.
When u very dense fog settled over
the Thames valley a few Sundays ago
and most densely over London it Im
posed a complete silence on animal life.
London was itself as silent as the
grave, for all traffic was stopped, and,
as on Sunday traffic of any kind Is re
duced to a minimum, the great city
was almost as still as a country vil
lage at midnight. The streets nnd even
tho river were almost without a sound,
for not a single tug was moving on
the TlSmcs. In the country no bird
uttered u sound. They all snt still, si
lent nnd moping.
The first forestry reserves were mado
for the general object of preserving tho
forest and without specific relation t
the great problem for which later they
were to provide the only solution. Now
they are seen to stand at the center of
public land policy of the nation, for
out of them come the wood and the wa
ter and the grass which are indispensa
ble for the founding of homes. GIfford

At a public sale of books the auction

which was knocked down to n shoe

great amusement of thu crowd, soon
asked If thoro were any more books on
