Jobnuy astonished the family in .the cocmtiy one day by announcing that he WMted to go home. ‘^Whait’is that?” demanded his father. **Want to go home?” I *TLep,” maintained the ,boy. ' \Well that’s very funny. It wasn’t two days ago that you were begging MS to stay up on this farm untii Octo­ ber, Are you sick?” \Got the blues?” \Nope.” \Toothache?” '‘Nope.'” \Mad because your mother won’t let you go swimming?” ‘‘Nope,” \Ah! I think I understand,” said his father, with a chuckle. ‘T happened to hear you sassing that farmer’s boy yesterday out back of the barn, and I also happened to see him flop you on your back. Did it hurt much?” \N-noi>e.” \Weil cheer up, my boy. We all have our ups and downs in this world. What good would it do you to go home?’ \If I was only home, pop,” replied the boy, with a longing sigh, “I could knock the stuffin’ out of Sammy Green, and then I’d feel better.”—A.

Though others 1 While/peevish cri _ _ ____ _ Complain'that she has little wit, I listen gladly and am stirred Most deeply by her every word. The-drama seldom is her theme. She wastes no time discussing art. The classic muse .she does not deem A fitting subject; biess her heart! From sconce she discreetly turns. And politics she sweetly spurns. Though others, think her dull, I sit And listen with siipreme delight. It seems to me her flow of wit Is always beautiful and bright. Her constant topic is, you see— Well, if I must admit it, me. —Chicago Record-Herald. A Narrow .Escape. I The Emperor's Style of Dust.

Origin of the Club Sandwich. - Alan'Johnstone Is | said to have origi­ nated the famous club i^ndwich, and the story runs that on going to the club one night between midnight and daybreak he found the'cafe closed, the cooks gone, and, being nearly famish­ ed, he invaded the larder, toasted him- i 'self some thick slices of bread, sliced them through, buttered them while • hot and laid thereon everything’ he found In the refrigerator—cqld chick­ en, ham and lettuce, with a spoonful of mayonnaise. The result was such an epicurean discovery as is not often made, but the story was too good to 'keep. He confided! the recipe to his cronies, and it straightway became ' one of the popular dishes of the club I menu, and so the father of the club sandwich, so deservedly popular, is the present British minister to Copen­ hagen.—Washington Herald. Circus Daring Due to , Heredity. Alfred T. Ringlihg says that nine- tenths of the leading performers be­ fore the public can be included in thirty families.

The circus daring and the circus muscles and the circus restlessness have de­ scended from father to children and thence to children [again. The thrill of the sawdust ring has got into the blood.
