The latter, suspecting that all was
not fair, approached the urn and drew
one of the balls, which he immediately
swallowed without looking at it.
"Why," said tlio superintendent,
"have you done thatV" How are we to
know whether you have drawn a black
or a white ball?" ,
"Oh, that's very easy to discover,"
was the reply. "Let the other now
draw. If I have the black, he must
necessnrlly draw the white one."
There was no help for It, and tho
farmer's son, putting his hand Into the
urn, drew the remaining ball, which, to
tho satisfaction of the spectators, was
a black one.

Tom Moore wrote the line, "Had

the printer made It read, "Had taken
up to heaven his physician." In a
weekly story paper a love story con
tained no less than twenty ridiculous
errors. Instead of fulling Into a rev
erie the young lady fell Into the river;
"bull pup" appeared for '-'pull up,"
"nasal" for "natal" and "trombone"
for "trembling." The fair heroine was
awfully "hungry" Instead of "angry."
llor heart was filled with "et ceterns"
and not "ecstasies," and when slio
meant lo say "thine" the types made
her say, "I am thin, I am wholly thin."

In some parts of Scotland It Is cus

her husband, no matter how little.
Ono couple who had experienced the
Btrlfe of wedded bliss for some years
were having the usual row, when tho
husband taunted the lady with the
paucity of worldly goods with which
she had endowed him.
"Awa!" said he. "When ye murrlt

"Weel, Jock," was the response, "gin

It may safely be asserted that from
the time of the t'ompieror (10M-10S7)
Sunday trading received much atten
tion. In early ages markets and fairs
were held on Sundays and frequently
hi the churchyards.
In iaur the Inhubltunts of Cocker
mouth presented a petition to parlia
ment, as their market was fast declin
ing through the Inhabitants of Cros
thwalte dealing in corn, flour, beans,
fleah. fish, at their church on Sundays
and that thereby they were unable to
nay their tolls to the king (Kdward I.).
An order was issued for closing the
church market at I'rothwalte.
At Bradford. Yorkshire, during the
same reign the market was held on a
Sfiday, doubtless In the churchyard.
The toil ;. lelded ". per annum.
In l'JSri a statute was passed enact
ing that henceforth neither fairs nor
markets be held In churchyards, for
the honor of the church.
In KllU a market was granted to the
town of Sedgelleld, Durham, to be held
on a Friday, but was soon changed to

The I'roeeNN of .MnUlnsr It Discovered
by nn Accident.
"A woman," said a paper maker. "In
vented blue paper. It was by accident
that she did It though. Before her time
all paper was whlto.
"She was the wife of William Kastes.
one of the leading paper makers of
England In the eighteenth century. In
passing through the paper plant one
day she dropped a big blue bag into a
vat of piflp. Hastes was a stern chap,
and so, since no one had seen the acci
dent, Mrs. Kastes decided to say noth
ing about It.
"The paper In the vat, which should
have been white, came out blue. The
workmen were mystified, Hastes en
raged. Mrs. Hastes kept quiet. Tho
upshot was that the paper was sent to
London, marked 'damaged,' to be sold
for whatever It would bring.
"But the selling agent In London
was shrewd. He saw that this blue
tinted paper was attractive. He de
clared It to be a wonderful new Inven
tion, and he sold It off like hot cakes
at double tho white paper's price.
"Hastes soon received an order for
more of the blue paper an order that
he and his men wasted several days
In trying to vainly nil.
"Then Mrs. Hastes came forward
and told the story of the blue cloth
bag. There was no dilllculty after
that In making the blue paper. This
paper's price remained very high, the
Hastes having a monopoly in It."
I'll Hunt hroplc Sparrow.
An incident which, tho writer de
clares, raised tho pugnacious sparrow
several degrees in his estimation Is
described in Outing. It shows that the
sparrow has other good qualities be
sides his sturdlness and self reliance.
For several days four or five sparrows
had visited a certain place on the roof
near my window. They always brought
food for another little fellow, who
never tried a flight from the spot. The
visiting sparrows never, came empty
billed. They woukl drop' tiny morsels
of food near the little sparrow. Whim
It began to eat the crumbs the others
set up a great chirping and then flow
away. After watching this for a few
days I went out on tho roof and ap
proached the lono bird. It did not flut
ter away from me nnd made no resist
ance when I picked It up. The spar
row was blind. Its eyes were covered
with n mllkllko fllm.

a ticket headed by Attorney General
