chair on the president's stand and smoked
a big corncob pipe with the utmost non
chanlance. The senate lobby was crowded, and sen

expectancy, for the strains of martial mu

this Juncture a figure In a glittering- and
brilliant uniform pushed through the crowd
and marched half way up the aisle. This

Mr. Hiley says that when, after a hard
night on a shuck mattress, he came down
to tho villainous smelling "dining-room,"
ho was In anything but a cheerful frame of
mind. He seated himself at a table opposite
a rough looking fellow who was busily en
gaged In conveying his f'Kl to his mouth
by means of his knife.

if I lately In tho woods, longed for
' I rnmnnnliinMliln. There were no
other cats near, and he felt very
Buddenly It occurred to him that there
might be plenty of white rabbits around,
and that he felt hungry as well as lone
some. So tho big wildcat began to sing a
plaintive song, the burden of which was:
"Oil, my sweet white rabbit, when you are
scared you run in a circle."
A white rabbit heard him, and said to
Itself: "Ho, ho! That dangerous fellow,
the wildcat. Is ubout, Is he? Well, I will
show him that I do not run In a .circle."
So off the 'rabbit started, and ran with
all his might. Then he stopped and
listened. Again he heard tho song, nearer
than before, and off be started again. Sev
eral times ho did this, and each time the
song seemed nearer. You see, the rabbit
had formed the bad habit of running in a
circle, and now he could run no other way,
try as he might.
So he kept circling on, ever getting
nearer to tho wildcat, until at last the cat,
with a final buret of melody, said: "Oh,
my sweet white rabbit, when you are
scared you run In a circle," and pounced
upon lilm and had him for supper.
This Is the story the Indians tell, and it
shows how a bad habit gets so fastened
on one that, even to save his life, he some
times cunnot break It off.

Senator Aliier'a Story.
Senator Alger of Michigan tells a story
about a "call-down" one of his friends re
ceived at the hands of a Kansas farmer
some years ago. The senator was speeding
through Kansas on a return trip from Cali
fornia, where he has Immense timber Inter

Michigan and as they passed through
Kansas a prosperous farmer came Into the
car and took a seat Just opposite them.
The senator and his friend were dis
cussing the relative value of Michigan and
Kansas lands when the former said: "I
think that Is a mighty good farm." and he
pointed out the window at a typical sun
"It may bo good enough," said Senator
Alger's friend, "but I wouldn't take It as
The Kansas farmer, who had been listen

"Well, I want to remark," replied the
farmer, who had been stung by tho slight

U was at a big meeting that all this was
said, more of a citizens' meeting than a
church gathering, and Mr. Dukes asked:
"Now what can you do for the preacher?

however, go where the latch-strlng Is not

This Is an affair that will please the

guest. In a scml-clrcle around a Urge black
board. If twenty children are present, give
each s, card with a number on It, number
ing the cards from one to twenty, with a
tiny pencil attached to It with ribbon.
The name of the child, Is written on the
back of the card. Pass around slips of
paper folded, and have each one promise
not to tell what Is written on his slip. The
person In charge will then call the number,
and each child must look to see what num

Kor Instance, if two is called, tho one
holding the slip with that figure will get up
and draw on the board a picture of the
animal the paper designates, the others
putting down on their cards opposite the
number called, the animal they think It Is.
After twenty animals have been drawn
and guessed, the correct list Is read, the
children marking their cards with the
ones they have correct.
The boy or girl who rightly guesses the
greatest number will receive a prise. The

also have a prlxe for consolation. A Noah's

diamonds. The princess went into the
mountain to gather flowers, and whllo

promised to anyone bringing information
concerning the owner of the slipper, no

The prince became very unhappy. He
