Last year, in the north of Ireland,
the following came under my observa

of the Interests of his employers, re

needn't go out of the hotel," moaning,
of course, that carriages formed part
of the establishment.

The countess was equal to the oc

she rose from her seat and exclaimed
enthusiastically, "Why, the Irishman,

"brought down the house."
"Hang It!" growled young Lovctt to
tho girl of his heart. "It makes mo

Cannot Fall to Appreciate the
Point In This Story.
Once a fanner had 1,800 bushels of
wheat, which he sold not to a single
grain merchant, but to 1,800 different
dealers, a bushel each. A few of them
paid him In cash, but far tho greater
number said It was not convenient
then; they would pay later. A few
mouths passed ami the man's bank
account ran low. "How; Is this?" lie
said. "My 1.S0O bushels o'f grain should
have kept mo In allluence until another
crop Is raised, but I have parted with
tho grain and have Instead only a vast
number of accounts, so small and scat
tered that I cannot get around and col
lect fast enough to pay expenses.''
So he posted up a public notleu and
asked all those who owed him to pay
quickly. Hut few came. The rest said,
"Mine Is only a small matter, and I
will go and pay one of these days," for
getting that, though each account was
very small, when all were put together
they meant a large sum to the man.
Things went on thus. The mini got to
feeling so bad that ho fell out of bed
and awoke and, running to his gran
ary, found his 1,800 bushels of wheat
still safe there. He had only boon
Moral. The next day tho man went
to the publisher of his paper nml said:
"Here, sir, Is the pay for your paper,
and when next' year's subscription Is
duo you can depend on' mo to pay It
promptly. I stood In the position of nn
editor last night, and I know how It
feels to have one's honestly earned
money scattered fill over the country In
small nmounts." Exchange.
