cious hostess at a reception given last

interesting topics were “Politics"

Worth the Difference.
A big jobber sent an aspiring young
man on the road to open up a new' ter
ritory where anew railroad was going
through. All the towns being new,
there were no hotel nccommodiittouß,
und It was necessary for the salesman
to secure meals and lodging at restau
rants, ete., where the price was 25 cents
meel. On looking over the expense
account the manager noticed all meals
charged at 50 cents.
“Look here, Charlie; I see you have
charged us 50 cents per meal on your
trip, and I am reliably Informed that
it is Impossible to get a meal for more
than 25 cents In your entire territory.
How about It?”
"Well,” said the salesman, “you uro
right. It did cost me but 25 cents per
meal, but I tell you, sir, it’s worth the
other 25 to eat those meals.”—New

The RuKng Passion.
A celebrated musical critic was mar
ried In church some years ago, and
after the ceremony, as the wedding
procession marched down the aisle, the
organist played the wedding march
from “Lohengrin." When near the
door, tho bridegroom stopped In tho
march und addressed the wondering
“I know I imi committing a breach
of etiquette ns well as propriety In
doing this, but I am not to blame. It
is my mental organization which has
become ineffably sensitive by reusou
of the critical nature of my duties.”
Then he drew from the pocket of his
dress coat a well thumbed copy of the
score of “Lohengrin.” Opening it at
the march, he went over to the organist
“What offended my ear was the fact
that In the seventeenth bar of tho anda 1
cajio passage you flutted very badly,
and in the andante movement you
Blurred the appogglatura. Now,” put
ting Ills finger upon the passage, “let
us try that again.”
Once more the organ pealed fdrth,
and this time the player, conscious
that the greut critic wus listening to
him, accomplished his duty with credit
to himself and to the sutisfac*.
