The Artist and the Critic.
Sidney Coo'ier, the English artist,
happening one day to visit the I'oyal
academy, where some of his works
were on exhibition, while a couple of
critics were examining the pictures
strolled up to where they were stand
In?. At that moment the younger of
the two critics exclaimed. "Any ma
chine could turn out sheep like that!"
Mr. Cootor put his hand in ids pock

to the newspaier man. said, with grav
ity, "If you will kindly send that ma
chine to this address when completed
I'll send a check for $1,000 to the in

A Gun Club's Treasure.
Thirteen million cartridge shells, the
result of eleven years of shooting by
the members of a guu club, have been
gathered into a huge pile by one of the
leading spirting organizations of Eng
land. Eleven years ago one of the
members conceived the idea of having
the members save ail their shells and
deposit them mi the pile. The shell
bank is now the club's most prized
possession. If a single man were to
shoot one cartridge a second day and
nighl it would take him about twenty
five years to discharge 13,000,000. The
club maintains n vigilant guard over
its precioas shell pile.
