spoonful of acid tea.
Fearing lest a refusal might be an
affront, i hastily said, "Sergeant, let
the men take it."
He looked at me for nn instant with,
a long, horrified look of remonstrance;
then, stepping to the front as if drill
jug, he gave the word:
"Order arms! Ground arms! Take,
the cups! Drink the tea!"

with a single gesture, emptied them
down their throats.
Next came the stately commands:
"Return the cups! Take up arms!
Shoulder arms!”
It was done. The sergeant was him

Colored Man Believed in and Practised
Making the Most of
A group of men were discussing hu
man nature and tho difficulty of look
ing always on the bright and glitter
ing wide of things when the dingy,
dark brown side Is uppermost and
seems destined to remain uppermost.
"It’s a great ihing to cultivate a
disposition to make the most of things
in this life," remarked one of the
group. "The most striking illustra
tion 1 ever had of that was in a big
horse race at a county fair down the
state about ten years ago. The man
driving alongside of me let his horse'
swerve on the back stretch and my
sulky was upset. That caused a gen
eral mixup and a colored driver right
behind me got unloaded and his sulky
broken to pieces. Well, 1 lay there
for a minute and then as I didn't seem
to be much hurt, 1 started to get up.
1 " 'Hey, boss, don’ you go gittin’ up,'
yelled the colored driver at me, ex
‘■’Why?’ I asked him, somewhat
" ’ 'Cause,’ he answered, ‘y’ all lay
right what’ yo' is, and in a minute
they'll sen' roun’ liyah and haul us
back pas’ the gran’ stan’ in u calh
hinge. ‘
"Sure enough, they did,” says Al
bright. ‘‘And when we drove up that
home stretch in the open hack they
sent after ns, that colored man was
the happiest person I ever saw. Now,
that's what 1 call making the most
of things.”
How to Hunt Wolves in India.
The authorities of Harzibagh are in
viting sportsmen to help in the exter
mination of a pack of wolves which
have established a reign of terror in
the neighborhood, according to the Al
lahabad t India) Pioneer. The reward
is at present 50 rupees for each full
grown wolf. Eleven children have
been killed between February 7 and
23 in the tract lying between liarlil
and Cohwparan police stations, a dis
tance of 13 miles. The wolves hunt
from early morning till noon and again
from two o’clock till sunset.
The authorities make the following
suggestions: Sportsmen should not. at
tempt to ride up to the wolves. When
the pack is sighted the sportsman
should send away his pony and his
attendants and should approach them
leisurely and alone. He should wear
a turban and make himself look as
like a peasant as possible. The rifle
should be carried as if it were a stick.
When Wine is Not Wine.
The Paris wine merchant who has
received six months’ imprisonment for
selling adulterated sauterne should
have taken expert advice before em
barking on his career of crime. Her
man, the dramatist, who In early life
had a high reputation as a chemist,
was once called to give evidence re
garding a certain brand of wine. As
he testified that it was wholly inno
cent of grape juice, the merchant was
heavily fined. On coming out of court
tlie defendant asked Herman, “How is
it that you were aide to swear so pos
itively that there is no grape-juice in
tlifit stuff of mine?" "Because if there
had been any, in combination with the
other elements you used, it would
have caused tartaric acid to form on
the barrel." "Thank you so much,”
replied the enlightened adulterator.
“You'll find some on the barrel next
Not Interested.
"Do you believe in corporal punish
ment?" Inquired the professor
“Really,” replied Mrs. Cumrox. "1

affairs. 1 leave tie e corporation ques

We sell the Crown Piano on its merits. We can show you point
by point where the Crown Piano is superior to any other piano
you can buy at any price Remember your piano is the most im
portant purchase you will ever make for your home. It costs but
little more, if any, to be sure that it is a good one. We sell the
Crown on terms as easy as any good piano can be offered to
people who know the difference between a questionable "induce
ment and real piano value for their money. Many inferior pianos
will cost you more than a Crown, Price does not determine value
