'' Pat Was Surprised.
Two Irishmen got tho contract to
clean n well. Pat tied a rope around
his middle, and MIUo lowered him Into
tho well. When Tat was through
cleaning, Mike began to hoist him up,
but when he was halfway up ho called
to his companion in tho well:
"Ilculd on u mlimlt, Pat, till I spit
on me hands," and let go of the rope.
Naturally Pnt descended again a little
too rapidly for comfort. When Mike
realized his blunder, ho run to the well
and culled down:
"Pat, Pat, are yo dead?"
And his partner replied:
"No, yo brainless spalpeen; Oi'm not
dead, begorry, but Ol'm spachless wld
uurprlso at ye." Judgo's Llbrury.

"Sometimes. See that llrebnck?"
I went to the corner Indicated nnd

of hammer work bitten and worn by

10S7, seemed to show.

FOUGHT IN A FOG.
A Duel In Which Noither Principal
Could Geo the Other.
The most laughable duel ever "fought"
in France was that which took placo
in November, 1878, nt Plessls-Plquet
between Messrs. Gnmbetta nnd Do
Some heated words had pnsscd be
tween the two distinguished gentlemen
in the chamber of deputies, for which,
according to their Ideas of honor, noth
ing could ntoue except n duel. Tho
men met therefore ou the field at
tended by their seconds and the sur
geons. A look over tho field was enough to
convince nny ono present thnt thero
would bo no occasion for the doctors'
services. A thick November fog hung
over the scene so thick, indeed, that
one could hardly see his hand beforo
his face. The nrrnngements for tho
duel required that it should bo fought
nt thirty-five paces.
Nor was tho fog the only circum
stance that tended to plncc the com
batants out of sight of eacli other. On
the way to the field M. de Fourtou is
reported to have said:
"M. Gambottn has but ono eyo, and
I nm shortsighted, so tho gnnio will
be nbout even."
It, was, of course, rendered still moro
"even" by tiio fog. Neither man could
Hoe the other, and tho solo danger was
to the seconds nnd tho doctors.
Almost mlrnculously the two bullets
thnt were exchanged missed the per
sons In nttondnnce. Everybody's hon
or wns satisfied and the whole party
went home. Gambetta said that tho
affair was as near to being n skirmish
in tho dark as nnytlilng he over saw.
Odd Marriago Ceremony of These
Barbarous Little People.
Belonging ns they do to the lowest
typo of civilization as yet discovered,
the Negritos of Malaysia and their
ways are well wortli studying. Simple,
primitive, barbarous little people, their
customs nre those of prehistoric man.
They havo no fixed homo or settle

mountainous Islands, sleeping under a
banana leaf, living on herbs and ber

The 8mell of tho Dawn.
Of all hours of the day thero Is none
like tho early morning for downright
good odors the morning beforo eat

with food a man's senses cut like
knives. Tho wholo world comes in
upon him. A still morning is best, for
the mists and the moisture seem to re
tain the odors which they havo dis
tilled through the night. Upon a
breezy morning ono is likely 'to get n
single predominant odor, ns of clover
when the wind blows across a bayfield
or of apple blossoms when tho wind
comes through the orchard, but upon a
perfectly still morning it is wonderful

A Powerful Indorsement.
Mnny years ago there was consider
able illness in Hnrrlsburg, which was
nttrlbuted to tho waters of tho Susque
hanna river, then the source of tho city
supply. Ono of the members of tho
legislature for that year, upon his re
turn to his constituents, was Inter
viewed concerning tho plugue. Ho
soon settled tho question. "Upon my
soul, gentlemen," ho declared, "tho re
port of tho foulness of tho water was a
slander on tho city of Hnrrlsburg. I
nbsolutcly know tho water to bo per
fectly healthful, for during tho session
I drnnk tho water on two different oc
casions, and I nover experienced nny
ill effect whatever." Pittsburg Press.
