A BAD MISTAKE.
Why a Canaan Street Man's Sunday
Rest Was Broken Up.
A good Joke was told yesterday on a
certain Canaan street man who hates
sparrows and Is always telling his
wife how they always drlvo away tho
beautiful robina and other songbirds.
Having a little leisure time on Sun
day morning he told his helpmate that
bo would feed the sparrows, and with
a chuckle ho mixed up a quart of
cornmcal with hot water and sprinkled
the mess generously with "rough on
rats." This ho laid out In a tempting
way and went back Into the house.to
await tho coming of the birds.
Something attracted his attention for
a short time, nnd then he took his seat
at a window with a smile to see the
effects of his liberality. But the smile
Immediately gave placo to a startles
and horrified look. Lo, arid behold!
his cherished pet dog was greedily
'devouring tho cornmeal while a flock
of sparrows wero twittering on tho
fence, watching the dog. With a
spring that overturned tho chair he
made for the door, grabbed the dos
and chased back Into tho house.
"Doy run for a stomach pump! Got
me a quart of hot lard! Girl, get n
veterinary surgeon! Oh, tho dog- will
die!" were a few of the breathless
remarks tho Canaan street man ut
tered In quick succession, while hid
wife and children, scared beyond "ho
power of speech, tried to do half a doz
en things at once, nnd the man launch
ed Into a tirade of the miserable spar
rows who had brought all this trouble
The dog Is still nllve, but ho didn't
foe-l well yesterday. He was a very
tslck "purp" for a tlmo, for he had to
wallow lard, tho whites of a dozen
tSSSiyW" aPd everything known to
After the animal was, out of danger
the Canaan street man went out In
the yard and carefully scraped up
what was left of tho cornmeal, while
a shrill chorus of sparrows rose In
the air as if enjoying a hearty laugh.
