One of the Company Was an Expert
at tho Game
A general arrived from St Peters
burg in a garrison town In the Interior
of Russia to hold an inspection of the
troops After the review ne stepped
into the officers mess room where he
noticed on the counter a row of bot
tles to which instead of usual -labels
white tickets with a single letter of
the alphabet on each were affixed
The bottles stood in rank and file and
in alphabetical order
What does this mean the general
asked the lieutenant who was show
ing him around
That is an officers charade your
excellency replied the officer rather
The general continued his inquiries
and elicited the following information
Each bottle contains a different
kind of liquor At the meeting of the
officers club one of us mixes some of
these varieties In a glass so that the
initials spell a name and the older
and more experienced members of the
club after lasting it guess what it is
composed of and name the word in
Very original Idea remarked the
general And are you able to make a
guess of that kind
If it is your excellencys pleasure I
will try the lieutenant replied
The general went to the counter and
mixed a glass while the officer stood
at the other end of the room with his
face to the wall
Now guess what this means said
the general as he handed the glass to
the officer
The latter drank it at one gulp
smacked his tongue and replied
That tf as Anna yonr excellency
Bravo exclaimed the general It
requires a lot of practice eh
Your excellency Anna is easy
enough but there if a captain In our
corps who can even guess Nebuchad

A Toss of a Coin With an Unexpected
A New York traveling man was tell
ing stories of Toothpick Tom a fa
mous Bowery character who lived by
his wits as a gambler Tom was
known far and wide not only because
of this gambling mania which was in
satiable but because of his quaint wit
and originality He was an illiterate
and could neither read nor write but
in the course of his career he handled
perhaps a little more than the average
gamblers share of coin raked in across
the green cloth
One afternoon Tom woke up with
a healthy appetite for breakfast said
the New Yorker lie found on in
vestigating his pockets that he had a
five dollar gold piece and he set out
for the nearest cafe to appease his
hunger But just as he was about to
enter the restaurant he suddenly rec
ognized the entrance to the next plaee
as the one leading to a gambling house
which he had not visited for some
time Tom paused He felt himself
torn between two emotions hunger
and the spirit of gambling
Should he risk his gold piece on the
faro table or the roulette or should he
eat That was the question He might
make a killing in which event of
course he would eat sumptuously
Then again he might lose and face
starvation The natural thing for Tom
to do was to leave it to chance
Heads up I eat breakfast tails I
play said Tom and flipped the coin
It was heads up and Tom scratched
his head thoughtfully and said
Well well make it two out of
Again he tossed up but this time
the gold piece struck a crevice in the
sidewalk and disappeared Tom look
ed at the crack and philosophically re

Money Getters
Do you think it pays to send our
sons to college Do they obtain the
practical experience in money getting
that is so necessary in these days I
Well judging from the experience
I have had with my son I should say
they did His practical experience in
money getting increases with every
letter that I receive from him
Simplified Debate
Are you going to attempt to an

Certainly replied Senator Sor

The Lstter a Rapid Fire Maxim tr
Fcrmcr a Thirteen Inch Can
Probably no educational instltuti 1
in our country has ever graduated twi
more eminent and eloquent lawyer
than old Dartmouth college gave u
In Daniel Webster and Rufus Choat
Bays a writer in Our Dumb AnimuU
It was my privilege as a member o
the Suffolk bar to attend many yer
ago the trial of one of the most lm
portant cases of the year In our su
preme judicial court at Boston
On the two sides were nrrayn
some half a dozen of our most eml
nent lawyers Daniel Webster anrt
Rufus Choate as it happened were on
the same side
A hostile witness was put on bj
the other side some of whose evidence
was of the utmost importance to Web
ster and Choate if It could be ob
tained and Choate undertook the task
of obtaining it No man at our oar
had more profound skill In cross ex
amination and the questions he put
to the witness were like the fire of a
Maxim gun but In every Instance he
failed to get the evidence he wanted
and finally sat down In despair
Then Webster who had been sitting
in his great armchair apparently about
half asleep as though taking no inter
est in the case whatever slowly arose
to his feet put his great eyos on the
hostile witness asked him in the most
serious tone a single question and
brought instantly the required answer
Then as quietly he sat down and ap
parently went about half asleep again
It was a scene photographed on my
mind never to be forgotten
The difference between Webster
and Choate cannot better be explained
as it rests in my mind than to com
pare Choate to a Maxim gun raining
bullets of eloquence wherever he chose
and Webster to a great gun that can
send cut a thirteen inch shell to pene
trate an ironclad
It was wonderful to listen to
Choate I remember a case in which
an ordinary lawyer would have sim
ply said to the court that he moved a
postponement of the case because wit
ness So-and-so was sick but in this
case Choate arose and commenced by
saying that his important witness was
on a bed of sickness and perhaps a
bed of death and so went whirling up
almost to the skies on this simple mo
tion to the great interest of everybody
that heard him
Our old chief justice Judge Shaw
one of the greatest lawyers of his
time was a plain practical man and
looked in his old age as he sat on the
bench somewhat like a Chinese idol
and he used to frequently cut off Mr
Choates eloquence by calling him back
to the plain facts
The Reconciliation
The doctor was soon at the childs
bedside Remedies were administered
then the agonized pair watched the
fight for life skill and vitality on one
side fierce disease on the othr When
at last the struggle ceased the gray
dawn of day was looking in at the
window Life had won The child
She is all right now said the doc
tor shaking the mans hand which
had gripped his and feeling his heart
grow warm under the look of mute
gratitude the woman turned upon
When he had gone the two stood
side by side at the babys crib listen
ing to her regular breathing Then
with one accord they turned and kiss
ed each other And in that kiss the
icy barrier between them melted away
