"The editor of the 'Weekly Plain Dealer' is a charitable sort o' feller," commented honest Farmer I-lornbeak, in the midst of his perusal of the village newspaper, wherein he had en countered an example of the lino type's peculiar perversity. "In his article on the" death of Lafe Dab sack', who, betwixt me and you, had n't much to recommend him except that he wasn't quite as bad some times as he was others, he says that 'the deceased was generally regarded sO hiijdytS9mfwhrdetahremfwhrtadfy!' "And I guess that's about as near as anybody could get to making an estimate of the departed without hurting his relatives' feelings."

"Clean out the place I" ordered the farmer who had engaged him. "Cat tie-shed first, then pigsty, then the stables. Let's have everything per fectly clean."

Bob Willet never cared to earn his A bread by the sweat of his brow, and it was small wonder that his ducal lord and master took occasion to in form him that his services would he no longer required. Bob was bitterly averse to such treatment, and resolved to have it out with "the dook.", A favourable opportunity presented itself to his mind, for had not the duchess been appointed a Lady-in-Waiting to the Queen ? "All right, yer grace," he said, sarcastically, "I'11 go, even if it's against the grain. But I'll say this to you, sir-though I'm a poor man. I never had to send m3 miesus out to service, and that's more'n some people can say."
