Under the head of Color vs. Brains
this statement is made: "The son of a
well known New Haven politician,
whose name begins with B., is a Fresh
man of Yale, aud was seated at recita
tion near the colored student, Bouchet,
whereupon the B. senior wrote to oue
of the I'rofessors.asking, as a personal
favor, that ho would change the young
man's seat, as it was distasteful to him
to sit near a negro. The Professor
wrote back that at present the students
were arranged iu alphabetical order,
aud it was not in his power to grant
the favor, but next term the desired
change would ba brought about, for
scholarship then being the criterion,
Mr. Bouchet will be in the first di

Kicked by a Mule.
Jake Johnson had a mule. There
was nothing remarkable in the mere
fact of his being the possessor of such
an animal, but there was something
peculiar about the mule. He the an
imal could kick hiaher, hit harder,
on the slighest provocation, and act
uglier than any mule on record.
One morning riding his property to
market, Jake met Jim Boggs, against
whom he had an ofd but concealed
grudge. He knew Boggs' weakness
lay in bragging and betting; there
fore, he saluted him accordingly.
'How are you, Jim? Fine morn
ing?" "Hearty squire," replied Jim. "Fiue
weather. Nice mule that you have.
Will he do to bet on ?"
"Bet on ? Guess he will that. I tell
you Jim Boggs, he's the best mule in
this country Paid $500 for him."
"Great smash ? Is that so ?" ejacu
"Solid truth, every word of it. Tell
you confidentially, Jim, I'm taking
him down for betting purposes. I bet
he can kick a fly off from any man
without its hurting him."
"Now, look here, squire," says Jim.
"I am not a betting character, but I'll
bet you something on that myself."
"Jim there's no use; don't bet, I
don't want to win your money."
"Don't be alarmed, squire, I'll take
such bets as them every time."
"Well, if you are determined to bet,
I will risk a small stake say five dol
lars." "All right, squire, you're my man.
But who'll he kick the flyofl ? There
is no one here but you and I. You try
"No," says Johnson ; "I have to be
by the mule's head to order him."
"Oh ! ya8s," says Jim. "Then prob
ably I'm the man. Wall, I'll doit;
but you are to bet ten against my five,
if I risk it."
"All right," quoth the squire. "Now
there is a fly on your shoulder. Stand
still." And Johnson adjusted the mule;
"What, Jervy, said he.
The mule raised his heels with such
velocity and force that Boggs rose in
the air like a bird, and alighted on all
fours in a muddy ditch, bang up
ngainst a rail fence.
Rising, in a towering rage, he ex
claimed: "Yass, that is smart I I knew
your darned mule couldn't do it. You
Lad that all put up. I wouldn't be
kicked like that for fifty dollars. You
can just fork over them are stakes for
it any way."
"Not so fast, Jim ; Jervy did just
what I said he could ; that is, kick a
fly off a man without its hurting him.
1 ou Bee the mule is uot injured by the
opreation. However, if you are not
satisfied, we will try it again, as often
as you wish."
"The deuce take you," growled Jim.
"I'd rather have a barn fall on me at
once than have that crittei kick me
again. Keep the stakes, but don'tsay
anything about it."
And Boggs trudged on in bitterness
of soul, murmuring to himself, "Sold,
by thunder! and kicked by a mulel"

Story of False Teeth.
Pays a Vermont correspondent :
Among the drollest things in traveling,
are the scraps of conversation one
catches unavoidably. Just listen with
me to the following, between two styl
ish looking girls sitting opposite me
while waiting for the train at White
River Junction : "Yes I'll admit he's
nice looking, but he has false teeth 1"
smiling and showing her own mouth
full of natural pearls "Well what if
he has ? False teeth are better than
none, that is if they keep iu the place
they are destined for. Ha 1 ha 1"
laughing musically that reminds roe,
did I ever tell you cousin Kate's ad
venture when she was stopiDg with us
when papa kept the N hotel ? There
was an insurance agent boarding at
the house a tremendous flirt, al
though he had a wife and half a doz
en children down in the country, and
a tremendous bore as agents always
are, trying to make themselves so fa
miliar and agreeable that they are a
positive nuisance. Kate, you know,
is very pretty and he got sight of her
as she went out and in, and was de
termined to make her acquaintance;
but it was never quite convenient for
pupa to bring him iu and introduce
him so we kept clear of him for Borne
time, But at last he managed to find
out cur breakfast hour, and used to
come in at the same time for his own,
insead of eating with the rest of the
boarders. We were terribly annoyed,
but could not very well help ourselves,
and so laid it all to Kate, and had
what fun out of it we could. One
morning he came in and took a seat
by Kate, as usual, and commenced
talk, and bless me ! how ha would talk 1
All he had to do was to open his
mouth, and he opened it a littler wider
than common as he said, "Good morn

you imagine it? It took me so entire
ly by surprise that I didn't think of
the proprieties at all, but screamod
with laughter. Kate tried to be her
own proper dignified self, but my mer
riment was contagious. Mamma had
an errand in the china closet, and pa

We now proceed to fulfill our prom

Ring, and more particularly to Con

swindling. That is the proper word to
describe the transaction, and is indeed
the only word, and thsrefore we have
no hesitation in using it. If Mayor
Hall and Controller Connolly object
to being branded as thieves and swin
dlers, as we once more brand them
now, they can sue us for libel, aud we
will prove our charges in a court of

charge by njpans of Controller Con

that he is "used to newspaper attacks."
