Colonel McIIatten went from Vir

inns were unknown and every dweller

investment in wild land, had become
in time a rich man but he kept up
his habits of hospitality, and if the
guest was well to do iu the world he
did not object to turning an honest
penny in that way.
One cold, blustering winter evening
a horseman drew up at the house and
asked accommodation for the night.
A half-grown lad answered intheaftir
tnutive, and ushered him into the sit
ting room, where the great wood fire
ot itself gave him a cordial welcome.
After supper the landlord made his
appearance for the first time. He was
hearty and hale, and as rosy as any
bo in lace should be, but he was bent
and crippled iu his guit. He explain
ed by saying that lie had taken a cold
which had settled in his back.

continued, "but it is so inconvenient.

baying which he handed the plaster
to his son, and seating himself astride
a chair, with his back to the fire, threw
his suspenders back, and shirt over his
head. "Now. Sain," said the Colonel,

the old man, testily. "I say heat it

Sam, whose face was at a red heat,

"Well, said the old man, looking

Sam, armed with the plaster, ap
proached him; and if mv word can
be taken did clap it on. The old man
gave one yell, like a wild Indian, and
jumped clear over the back of the
chair, kicking his old-fashed breeches
off his feet and dancing around with
pain. The traveler laughed uutil he
cried, and the more mino host roared
the more he laughed. Wheu the first
agouy was over, the Colonel began to
swear, aud our traveler thought it
would be prudent to retire, least he
should share his wrath with Sam, who
he observed was making good his dis

handed the Colonel five dollars, saying

Timeing a Fast Horse.
A friend of ours, who owns a fine
farm near Camp Dennison John we
will call him is fond of horses, and
has a private race track where he puts
his fast rings through a course of
equine sports. Those residing in the
vicinity who have, or think they have
fast nags, frequently repair to tliis race
track for the purpose of testing the
speed of their horses. Now John is a
bit of a wag, and numerous are the
jokes he plays off on his friends in
"timeing ' their horses with bis patent
stop watch. Every man likes to think
he has a fast horse, and when told
that his horse has made a mile in 2:30
when he bad no idea he could get be
low the fillies, he naturally feels elated,
don't you see especially when so
grave and earnest a man as our friend
John holds the watch that is known
the country round for iu reliability.
If anybody else were to time the
speed of the nags they might question
its authenticity, but John no one
thought of questioning the patent
walch. One day lust tall a neighbor
ing farmer, wha couldn't sleep very
well at nights, because he had got it
into his head that a colt he owned was
fast, brought the said colt to John's
race track to try him. John very
accommodatingly held his watch while
the owner of the colt drove around
"Two thirty-eight!" yelled John as
the colt passed the mile post.
"What's that ?" ihoutcd the man in
"Two minutes and thirty-eight sec
onds exactly," replied John, without
moving a muscle.
This was so much better than he ex
pected that he couldn't believe it possi
ble, and said so.
"Hold the watch yourself, then, said
John somewhat gruffly, "If you can't
"Oh," replied the man hastsning to
conciliate, I don't question your mean
ing in the matter, but you might have
made a mistake iu the watch."
"Don't you know this is a pntentstop
watch?" inquired John. "It can't
make any mistake ; there, you see it
has stopped on two minutes and thirty
eight seconds. I'll drive aroufid, and
you time the colt."
Now the interior of the track was
planted with corn and the forest of
coru stulks reared the lofty heads there
completely obstructing more than

As soon as he was out of sight of the
others he darted through a wood that
traversed the corn held, cutting of!

he reached the mile post the owner of
the colt fairly danced with joy as he

The man was nearly wild with ex

for the colt on the spo' and hurried

to bis own horror and the uprouriotis
mirth of the crowd, his fust horse was

Iu utter disgust he sold the colt for a
moderate sum, and is entirely cured of
the fast horse complaint. He don t
know to this day that John stopped
his "stop watch" on him, and he is ig
