"Yes, dearest!" she replied. "Aren't all these people ^ nuisance?" ho Queried. "It's a pity there's such a lot of there." she answered. "Wouldn't It be scrumptious, dearest, to be on an Island, with the blue ky overhead and feathered sonEsters In the woods-Just you and 1?" "Ice cream!" came a raucous cry from the " beach, Interrupting the lover's rhapsody. Then the lady spoke, love ^Tltten plainly In every lino of her pretty face. "'Orace," she remarked, "I could just do with a raspb'rj' and vanilla, couldn't you?" TSBTD BEEN BEFORE. fPHE busy housewife, who believes *� that plenty of hard work never hurts onybody, was laid up with a bad cold when her raald left: so she asked her husband to go down to the registry oftire about another. Ho started at ten o'clock in the-morning, and returned at three, worn and tired. . "What's the matter, imy lovo?" asked the wife solicitously,^ as he sank Into a chair beside her bod. "Were Ihero no servants at the office?" "Yes, heaps of 'em," replied he, with a groan; "but, unfortunately, they'd all worked for us bofortl" . HIS DUTY OOOD REASOy. As th� train whirled through tho beautiful valley, the Inqulsitivo traveler persisted In sticking his head out of the window to got a better view of the scenery. "Keep your head Inside can't you?" shouted the conductor. "Why?" "So's you won't damage any of the Ironwork on the bridges." ^'EXT TIME. ^HB label "Lioness" was hung under the compartment containing the male, whilo the words "African Lion" adorned the lair of the female. When the attention of the keeper was called to the mistake, ho scratched his head thoughtfully. "Them guys make mo tlrod!" he grumbled- "Now 1 a'pose I'll have to fix It." To tho astonishment of the onlookers the keeper entered the- den, where, with many a shout and many a crack of his big whip, he forced tho huge beasts to crawl through nn iron door In the partition and change places- When ho had finished, tho keeper! backed through tho door of the cage, i flicked a few particles of dust from ; his uniform, and expressed his sentiments In the following words: "It them guys over does that trick again, I'll make them change the cards!" , PERSONALITIES THE QUEER UllERICK. CSAID the bride, "Here's my first ^ batch of biscuit. Just wait, from tho oven I'll whiscuit." How tho poor Woman cried When her husband replied, "Let it burn! I don't think I could riscuit!"

"PfE was a wily old lawyer, and had Instructed his client, accused of theft, to weep whenever ho struck the desk with his hand. In the heaf of his argument, however, he struck tho desk at tho wrong moment. His client promptly began to sob with great energj-. "What Is the matter with you?" asked the judge severely. "He told me to cr>' when ho struck the desk," said the prisoner, as she lifted a pair of dry oyis from her handkerchief. A laugh Immediately rang round the room, but tho lawyer was not abashed, "It Is not possible," ho said, when the laughter had subsided, "that anyone here can reconcile the idea of crime with such candor and simplicity." _ HAD QUITE A FEW. "J�AVE you any children. Jones?" "Oh, yes. Y'ou know Robinson?" "Which Robinson-Jonathan?" "Yes-" "Know him very well- What's that got to do with it?"

"What's that?" asked tho employer. "Well, sir," said tho sad-oycd ono, "I was tho doer and tho rest wero tho tellers. When my guv'nor wanted n thing done he would tell tho cashier, tho cashier would tell It to tho bookkeeper, and tho bookkooper would tell it to his assistant, his assistant would tell It to tho chief clerk, and the chief clerk would tell It to mo." "And what would happen then?" "Well, sir," replied tho snd-cyod applicant, "as I hadn't got anyone to mention It to I'd go and do it." A PERFECT CURE. "T)OES anyone suffer from the slcep-, walking habit?" asked tho professional joker at a largo gathering. Smithson- who alw.iya fancied himself to bo delicate, roso to tho occasion. "Yes, I do," ho said. "Have done for years. Do you know any remedy?" "Yes," said tho jokar. "I have a prescription here I will glvo you- Talto It to a hardware store." "A hardware store?"

What do they call you 'Scales' for?" "Because I get tipped so often." HIS MANLY SPIRIT. A -STURDY Scotsman had been having a dispute with liis wife, which resulted In his taking refuge under the bed. As she stood on guard with a good-sized stick in her hand, he called lustiijr from his retreat: "Yo can lam mo and ye can bate me, Iiut yo canna break ma manly spirit. I'll nao come oot!" JUST AWFUL.

"Then here it is," said she, handing the bill to him. "I picked it up behind you from the car floor." "Thank ye very mucli, young lady, for your honesty. This Is a most remarkable happening!" "Oh, I don't think so, sir! 1 believe every one* should return the money In such a case as this. What Is there so remarkable about It?" "Why, X lost .my five-dollar bill two years ago!" TOO HEALTHY.
