'If I try for the bookkeeping job, I may get some ]ob between thai and being refused altogether.'

The man from Colorado. The Driver and the Passenger. As we left Sandy Guich for Rising Sun there were six mule passon'-".-: r to go by the ccach. and the route 'v-? over the mountains and full of chan ces of disaster. The driver came ou/ from breakfast as soon as the coach was ready, and looking about on tha passengers ho selected a small, pale faced man and invited him to climb up beside him. While the pale-faced man was climbing up the driver whispered to the rest of us:— i "I picked him out in order to scare I him to death. You fellows will see j a heap of fun before we've gone ten miles!" Two minutes west of the gulch the road made a sudden turn, with a shee< fall of a hundred feet down to Wild Cat Creek, and the driver put his hor ses to the gallop and said to the man: "We may get round all right, or we may fetch up down below.

I? THE LIMITS OF 8PORT. Let not your recreations be lavish spenders of your time, but choose such which are healthful, ^iort, tran sient, recreative, and apt to refresh you; but at no hand dwell in them or make them your great employment, for he that spends his time in sports and calls it recreation is like him whose garment is all made of fringes and his meat nothing but sauces; they are healthless, chargeable, and use less. And, therefore, avoid such games which require much time or long at endance, or which are apt to steal he affections from more severs em ployments.

A Day In the Country. The rresh-oomplexloned young police man from the country betrayed by his Belf-conscious air tbe disquietude he felt on first going on duty in a Lon don street. He was particularly dis turbed in mind by the behavior of a street arab, who sat on the kerb smok ing a succession of "fag ends," and regarding him with a fixed serenity of gaze worthy of Sam Weller himself. Waiting until he thought he wa9 not noticed, the new constable ap proached the urchin. "Now, then," began the policeman, "what are you sitting there for all this time?" "Takin' a day off in the country," replied the arab. The inexperienced officer, perfectly new to the specleB, stared at the pro duct of slumdom in undisguised amaze ment. "Takin' a day off in the country!" he echoed. "Why, wherever can you see the country from 'ere?" "In your face, of course," replied the alert arab, at last, swiftly vacating the kerb.

"The Dispateh" ? WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 25. Published Wednesday and Saturday Local and General News Sportsmen who are prevented by law from shooting game on Sun days are naturally perturbed at the fact that the 'opening of the quail season this year will be on a Sunday. A correspondent has pointed out that numerous shooters who have carefully abided by the game laws are now faced with the strong probability that on the opening day the cream of the shooting will be taken by others wlios^ "consciences are more.elaatic. Referring to the question, the chief inspector of Game and Fisheries (Mr. Semmens) stated this would be the third season when March 1 had been fixed as the opening day. Hitherto the date for the opening of the season varied considerably, and persons brought before the police courts for having begun to shoot too soon often pleaded that they did not know the date was different from that fixed for the previous season. It was thought that an excuse should not be provided by fl...
