The Man Who Showed Off.
At Faro \ve got news of an acci
dent on the line beyond , and the
train had to wait there two hours.
Everybody got out to stroll around ,
and there were a good man } ' people
at the depot to look the passengers
over. Among these we bed our at
tention attracted to a big man who
had on a buffalo overcoat , a wolfskin
cap , and from the collnr of the coat
dangled seven or eight claws which
liad"once assisted grizzly bears to
scratch their way through life. He
had long hair , a wild eye , buckskin
legerins , and was evidently a mighty
nimrod , if not a western terror. He
was walking up and down the
platform to show himself off , when
an undersized , insignificant-looking
passenger on our train , who hnd
been dubbed "Godfrey's Cordial"
ever since we left Chicago , approach
ed him and said :
"Mistuh man , ith that overcoat
for thale ? "
"No , sir ! " was the thunderous re
sponse , as the wearer of it turned on
"Oh ! excuthe me. I thee yur have
theme claws there. Did they belong
to a cat ? "
"Cat ! Cat ! Did you ever see a cat
with such claws ? "
"No , thir ; and that's the reason 1
asked you. Ith that cap made ol
lambskin ? "
"Lambskin ! What are you driv
ing at ? "
"My deah sir , I nevah drive , Its
against my principles. I am thimply
theeking solid facts. Why don't yon
have your haircut and put on theme
woolen pantaloons ? I should think
you would catch cold. "
"Look here ! " growled the big man
as he came to a halt. "I want you
to go away ! "
"Do I make you tired"
"You do. "
IIT jl J-l Iff
"Now , you clear out , or I'll get
mad. " .
"Keal mad ? " . x ' ' \
You hear me ! " " '
"I should so like to buy one ol
, thpse claws. I will give you two
"If you don't clear out I'll slice an
ear off ! "
"Would you really slice my ear off ? "
innocently asked Cordfal ,
"I would and I will ! "
"Which ear ? " , '
"Both of'em , you infernal fool ! "
"Thay"said Cordial , after looking
him over , "I don't like .the way you
talk. I think you ought to apolo
"Apologize ! Why you grasahop-
per , I've a good mind to hold you up
bv the hair ! "
"Don'th you try it ! " <
"But I will ! " ' '
And he did , but he had scarcely
reached out when Cordial was all
chain lightning and fish hones and
pounded glass. He jumped in with
his left on the big man's nose , took
him on the nose with hfs right as he
fell , and the buffalo overcoat had no
sooner hit the platform than the lit
tle man was swarming all over it ,
with both his fists working like pis
In one minute the big man was
licked , and then he was led off one
way while we took Cordial the other.
I don't know what old bear's claws
had to say , but as we got the little
fellow into the coach he re tied the
bow at his collar , dusted his shoes
.with his hankerchief , and explained :
"Wath I to blame ? When I thaw
those claws wasn't it natural that I
should wonder where the cat wath ?
And I"never thaw a wolf nor a buf-
tale in mv whole life. " ! sY. . Sun.
An Honest Conductor ,
In the olden days , when railroad
Companies used to believe their con.
'ductors honest , says the New York
Sun , an official , whose run was from
Buffalo east , was called into the
( president's room at the end of one ol
, his trips , and the big man kindly
Jsaid to him :
= "John , the receipts on your runs
have been growing beautifully less
! for some time past. "
"Yes , sir , but travel is very light ,
you know. "
"Is it ? I haven't heard of that.
John , you have lately built a nice
house ? "

"You have a diamond pin ? "
"Keep a horse and buggy ? "
"And your salary is only $60 pe ;
month , J'ohn ? "
"Yes , sir. "
: 'l don't thinkyou would steal from
the company ? ' '
"Oh , no ! no ! no ! sul"
"But I've a proposition to make.
Suppose you give the road your re-
peipts , and you take everything else
coming in ! If you don't I don't see
how we are going to payrunniug ex-
pences over a month longer ! "
Australian View of Parliament.
Pall Mall Gazette.
Here is a view of the House of
Commons as it strikes the correspond-
jent of one of the Australian papers :
f'lii is an idle , gossiping , demoraliz

of affairs. The other day I was sit

solicitors in England and as we rose
to go he exclaimed. 'Three days of
this place would send me into a

gardless of the great growth of towns
and the building of school-houses ,
it la still almost impossible to get
a direct answer to a question.
One evening about dusk a man
rode up to a fence surround

thus addressed a woman who was
attempting to persuaue a few drops
of milk from a muley cow :
"Madam , I am lost. "

A Game Hen.
A game hen died on R. W. Gam
ble's place at Cuthbert , Ga. , a few
days ago. This hen had reached the
age ol 14- years , lacking only a few
.weeks. She continued to lay eggs
until a year before she died. For
several months she had been totally
blind , but was"fed and watered regu
larly by Miss Mary Gamble. In
1S8G , when Mr. Gamble moved to
Macon , this hen was carried there ,
and brought back when he returned
to Cuthbert. In the spring of 182 ,
when the cyclone struck Mr. Gam
ble's place and tore things up , this
old lien was setting in a box on the
kitchen hearth. The kitchen was
blown away , the chimney was miss
ing , but the hearth remained , and
there sat the old hen in her box , as
though nothing had happened.
The Judge and the Sport.
Mr. Justice Hawkins was once tak
en to be a member of the P. R. Ho
was waiting to take his ticket at a
railway station in Paris , at which
there were a number of English
roughs returning from the races , one
of whom was very rude to him. The
judge remonstrated , whereupon the
man became more insulting , and said
that if he would come outside he
would give him "what for. " Sir
Henry , who wears his hair cut very
short , then took oft his hat , thinking
that as the men were probably of
the criminal classes they would re
cognize him , and quietly remarked :
"Perhaps vou do not know who I
am ? "
Did the man in awestricken tones
exclaim. " 'Awkins , by thunder ? "
No. What ht said was : "S'lep mo
bob , a bloomhV prize fighter ! Not
me ! " And the judge was not further
Beat the Bell Punch.
From the Chicago Tribune.
A" Kansas City street-car conduc
tor has found an ensy way to beat
the bell punch. He goes off to some
secluded spot at niglrt , notes the
number indicated by the register ,
pulls the-machine till it has counted
offthe entire 10,000 and begin at
one again , after which he rings till
the register indicates 100 less than
when he began and stops. He ia
then in a position to ring fares hon
estly all next day and be § 5 ahead
of the company at night. The only
way now to beat the honest street
car conductor is to make tbe count
ing capacity of the register 100,000 ,
or handcuff him to some other hon
