THE BACK PLATFORM. Little Bobby took a ride on a street «ar the other day and then wrote the following composition ou "The Back Platform:" "The back platform la a bully place for pickpockets and cigarette smokers. That's why you always find them there. Some men stand on the back platform because they are too mean to go Inside. They are afraid they might have to give up their seat to a lady. Other men stand out on the back platform because they are foxy and think the conductor might forget their nickel in the rush. The only time a woman stands on the back platform is to raise her umbrella or give the conductor a piece of her mind." Kind Old Duffers. "The aged president of a college has been deposed because he was too af- fectionate in his conduct toward lady teachers and co-eds." "Hum!" "His friends are highly Indignant, and declare his kindness has been misunderstood." "Hum! hum! I'll bet I've heard of aged millionaires who were kind to chorus girls in just the same way."

Collins, the brilliant criminologist and superintendent of New York state prisons, narrated at a dinner In Troy some reminiscences of his interesting work. "A clever criminal of gluttonous proclivities," he said, "once couched a complaint in rather neat terms. "My inspector, entering the man's cell one day, found it very hot and stuffy. " 'Why have you got your ventilator closed?' he asked. "The burly and gluttonous prisoner answered plaintively: " 'Well, inspector, yer honor, the last time I had the ventilator open a wasp flew in, you see, and carried off my dinner while my back was turned.'" The Two Extremes. Two friends meeting after an ab- sence of some years, during which time the one had increased consid- erably in bulk and the other still re- sembled only the "effigy of man." Said the stout gentleman: "Why, Dick, you look as if you had not had a dinner since I last saw you." "And you," replied th...

The report that the flsh are biting Is probably a falte alarm. When sailing In such dizzy heights the mercury should continually expect to take a tumble.
