Grandpa ' Couldn't Resist Temptation
Orandpa Deexlona felt a great dealre to
chuck 'the waltreas under the chin. It
waa the eleventh meal with which she
had served him.
ne had' browh' hair, b'149, ,eyest! there
waa red In hef olive cheeks and a humor
oua, large mouth sweetened the respectable
sophistication of her countenance. Her
footsteps aa she brought his rice pudding
were not Jerky Iambics, nor nervous ana
pests, lagging trochees nor wearied spon
dalcs; they were blithe dactyls.
With his $1,000.60 a year from government
bonds Grandpa' Deexlona could not always
tread upper Broadway or the Fifth avenue
t'eachea. Emerging at dawn from the hall
rooYn on Brooklyn Heights, he would
fil for long strolls from navy yard to Erie
Baaln, or, firmly treading Brooklyn bridge,
descend' soon Into the Manhattan he saw
from It. "South street "and' Fulton Market
knew hlrr. well. At noon sharp he sought
out the marble haah-sllnglng portals within
which aAe walked and sang.
The J!rt time Grandpa Deexlona had aat
at her table he had known that he wanted
to do something faintly Indicative of his
Immediate . admiration. ' The matter had
worried him a -good deal. He had taken
some of his long walk upon It.
If he had Veen gifted with a ready wit
he might have rendered her a tribute of
happy words. But grandpa had never ap
proximated an epigram In his life. Younger
men might have flirted. Grandpa thought
of that and then 'realised with despair
that one wearing a beard two feet long
could not . flirt If he wanted to. Those
hairs would have obscured an earthquake
of shy emotion.
Kiss Her? Well, whatever Grandpa
I'etfXlonH lacked it waa not moderation.
The very Idea of osculation terrified him.
He would undoubtedly be arrested and
fiMly Insulted if he did that. Besides the
thing mi as trite as bold.
He had made several visits to the glit
tering and tessellated eating place before
his native Instinct asaerted Itself, and It
occurred to him that what he had really
wanted to do from the start was to chuck
her with sly pollteneaa under the chin.
But dwelling upon the conaequencee waa

he would he draxxed to a police court aa

He did not fear violence at the hands of a
frenzied mob If he chucked her chin. But

Perhaps she was not of a nervous tem

at the table would become cognizant of
his misconduct and the Inertia of thtlr
stares would drive him outside.
Plre as any or all of these contingencies
would be, Grandpa Deexlona felt the desire !
to chuck her chin getting stronger with
each visit. It may be aaid ' that he was
foolish to continue to eat there, but Judg

had a say in It. His vlsita continued pri

Mie drew near, she hovered over hlin.
Crooking his forefinger he reached up and
brushed her chin, effacing for a moment
the dimple In it. Then he braced himself
for her cries.
None came. Instead Grandpa Deexlona
felt a sticky trickle. It was the rice pud
ding annolntlng him Aaron fashion, and
not alone his beard. At the same Instant a
contrite voice said-
"Oh, pardon me; I'JI get you another

One of the most curious Industries in the
world Is the business of mining for coffin
planks, which Is carried on In Upper Ton
quln, a portion of the French possessions
In southeastern Asia. In a certain district
in this province there exists a great under
ground deposit of logs, which probably
were the trunks of trees engulfed by an
earthquake or some other convulsion of
nature at a comparatively recent period.
The trees are a species of pine known to
the natives as "namhou." The wood Is
almost Imperishable and has the quality,
either through Its nature or as the result
of Its sojourn underground, of resisting
decay from damp. Thla quality makes It
particularly valuable for the manufacture
of coffins, and for this purpose It la lurguly
exported to Europe.
The trees often are a yard In diameter.
They are burled In sandy earth, at a
depth of from two to eight yards, and are

One Way to Win a Suit
During the trial of a personal Injury suit
at Ottawa, III., jurors and spectators were
surprised when two wheelbarrows, a shovel
and several sacks of coal were hauled Into
the court room, and John Schneider, plain
tiff In a suit for $30,000 damages, was
called upon to give a shoveling demonstra
tion. He asked damages from the Illinois Zinc
company, having been Injured while em
ployed in a mine owned by the defendants.
He claimed to he permanently injured and
that he had little or no use of his right
arm. The defendant claimed he had been
employed In a coal mine In Ohio and also
had become a brakeman on the Erie rail
road. In the effort to convince the Jury
that he could not shovel ceal or twist
brakea If hla arm was injured, the coaJ
shovellng exhibit waa arranged.
Schneider, to the discomfiture of the de
fenae. seised the" shovel with his left hand,
braced the handle under the' elbow of his
right arm and shoveled the coal from one
barrow to the other. The Jury gave him

clal No FTllls.) We are los
ing Interest in what Is going
on out at the state house Juat
now, for we have something
more important to look after
uptown. It seems that some of
the residents of the Holy City
have not been satisfied entirely
with the efforts made to Im
prove their condition. Maybe
that isn't just the way to put

round of the Wet va. Dry af
fair, and it will be to a finish
thla time; no matter which
aide wlna, the debate will not
be resumed for twenty-four
hours after the vote la counted.
