The Folks Who Paid For the Dis
course Got What They Wanted
Many Maine people who live In a
certain part of Cumberland county will
well remember one Abner so he was
always called In his town Abner was
tho wit of the village and he was
commonly selected to take ch rge of
funerals because he was about the
only man in town who had time hang
ing on his hands A citizen died a man
who never amounted to much who
tras never positively wicked because
that would have required more of an
effort than he was willing to make
He was however far enough from be
ing a good citizen and Abner knew it
as well as anybody else
Abner was requested to ask a certain
minister to conduct the service and he
hitched up his old horse and drove to
his house The minister said lie would
attend and then tried to get a little in
formation concerning the late lament
What sort of a man was he he
Well about the same as no sort of
a man at all replied Abner frankly
I suppose his loss will be deeply
felt in the community said the min
Theyre all bearing up well under
it said Abner slowly
Was he a Christian asked the
If hed been accused of it the ver
dict would have been not guilty and
the jury wouldnt have left their seats
replied Abner cheerfully
Did he attend church asked the
minister a bit anxiously
I never heard of his doing it said
How did he die continued the
Just the same as he lived sort of
naturally said Abner
I dont see how Im to preach much
of a sermon under such circumstances
said the minister
The neighbors all said they didnt
think they wanted much of a sermon
and so they sent me over to see you
said Abner
The minister pocketed his wrath and
a five dollar bill and after the funeral
the satisfied Abner said Well we got
just what we wanted bgosh Lewis

Game chickens have more meat in
proportion to their height than any
other breed of fowls
When the chickens are growing fast
it is a good plan to mix a little bone
meal in their soft feed
Smearing whole wheat with kerosene
or turpentine and feeding it to the
chickens is a good remedy for gapes
Adding some carbolic acid and put
ting on hot will secure much better re
sults from the whitewashing of the
poultry house
While it is at no time advisable to
keep food of any kind before the fowls
all the time it will bo an advantage to
keep milk where they can drink all
they want
Fowls do not run together in largo
numbers They will always divide into
flocks of small size and will select dif
ferent feeding grounds always pro
vided they have the opportunity
A growing chicken like a growing
animal requires plenty of good whole
some food supplied liberally and often
in order to enable them to grow and
mature rapidly and to develop proper
There Was a Limit
I am glad they moved away re
marked the good housewife speaking
of a family of borrowing neighbors
who had just left the neighborhood I
was willing to lend them a loaf of
bread occasionally or half a dozen eggs
or the washboard or the lemon
squeezer but when they got down to
sending the little girl over to borrow
pennies to give the organ grinder I
began to think it was nearly time to
draw the line and to cap the climax
one daj they actually asked me to
come over and take care of the baby
while they went out to do the shop-

Why One Girl Had to Keep Secluded
For Over a Weclc
They were two pretty girls and when
they happened to meet on one of tho
quiet streets of the city the girl in
gray turned and walked in the direc
tion the other one had taken
Now let me know all about the par
ty said the one who had turned Ive
been just dying to see you and have
you tell me
Oh but I wasnt there at all said
her companion This is the first time
Ive been out of the house for more
than a week
Why have you been ill her friend
inquired surprised and solicitous
i No I really think it was worse than
that she replied
You know Im a little proud of my
hair for its my one redeeming point
modestly and because it is naturally
wavy it is always llufliest after It has
been shampooed
A day or two before the party I
washed my hair using what I thought
was borax in the water When I at
tempted to dry my erstwhile bonnle
brown curls they were stringy and
hard and looked as if they had been
frozen in wisps Then to my horror I
discovered that I had used powdered
alum in the water It took me a whole
week to get it out of my hair I miss
ed the party I had set my heart upon
attending and wouldnt let any of my
friends see mo for I was a perfect
fright Duluth News Tribune
Sin of the Tongue
The sins of the tongue all point to
the necessity and profit of self mastery
There is danger in tho tongue that
I often brings the deepest sorrow to in-
nocent ones as well as throws a re-
I flection on a pure character If this
i confession of failure and magnifying
I of the oliice of the tongue seem
gerated let any one sit down quietly
and tldnk of the sins and cruelties of
human speech The careless words
which no repentance can call back
again the rash promises which it has
cost us so much to fulfill the expres
sion of the lower nature which has
shamed the higher the confessions of
evil and yielding to falsehood the hot
and angry words which sober thought
condemn these are some of the perils
of the tongue On the other hand like
most of the uses of the world which
turn so easily to evil the tongue may
bo the instrument of great and lasting
A Rejected Novel
Before he had achieved fame the
French novelist Xavier de Montepin
on concluding a long and elaborate
tale of adventure took it full of hope
to a publisher who promptly declined
it on even the most advantageous
terms to the writers poignant morti
fication Twenty years afterward this
identical publisher besought at his
hands a sensational story one of those
serials which were the delight of gri
settes offering any price within rea
son Well said De Montepin I
will oblige you but my terms must be
somewhat heavy I want 4000 Aft
er many protests it was paid
In telling the storj De Montepin
used to add The best of the business
was that it was the very same story
which he had previously rejected and
which I had in various directions en
deavored in vain to dispose of
A Curious Tree
There is a peculiar tree in the forests
of central India which lias most curi
ous characteristics The leaves of the
tree are of a highly sensitive nature
and so full of electricity that -whoever
touches one of them receives an elec
tric shock It lias a very singular ef
fect upon a magnetic needle and will
inlluence it at a distance of even seven
ty feet The electrical strength of the
trees varies according to the time of
day it being strongest at midday and
weakest at midnight In ivet weather
its powers disappear altogether Birds
never approach the tree nor have in
sectsever been seen upon it
