Now York, N. Y. "1 came East on
tho trail of a flsh," remarked Joan
Devereaux, a business man of Omaha,
ut the Grand Central Station.
"It was like this. Last summer I
went fishing In Cut-Off Lake, north of
Omaha, at one time a part of the Mis
souri Itlver. I hauled up a big trout.
How that trout got In Cut-Off Lake
is a mystery, because trout are scarce
in that whole section of tho country.
I knew the only way to make my
friends believe me when 1 told them I
caught tho trout In the lake was to
take It home alive.
"1 tied a string to the trout'B tall
and fastened It to a seat In the boat.
Then with my hat I dipped up enough
water to l alf fill the boat, and, tak
ing off my clothes, Jumped overboard
and pushed the boat ashore.
"Just as I had finished dressing, a
milk wagon came by, and for a couple
of dollars the driver consented to

I 'Squire Hake Ilaldwln of this vlllago

admirably. There are semaphores for
day trips and lights for night trips,
and the horse now understands their

j Jlaldwln purchased the horse in
Newark. Ho noticed tho Newark
traders were not bidding for tho ani
mal and thought he would enliven
things by offering f2.no. To his sur
prl. e, the horse was knocked down
to him. A cheap carriage nnd an even
cheaper set of harness also were pur
chased and he started home with his
new inquisitions. As he drove out, a
street urchin ran nlongslde the car
riage and told him he would better
be rnreful of the horse, because It was
deaf and dumb. Bnlilwln thought tho
boy was fooling him. Heforo ho
reached home he discovered the anl
mnl was as deaf aR a post nnd that It
paid little or no attention to pulls on
the reins. Half an hour was spent in
a puddle and another half hour In get
ting nut of a ditch.
Finally Ualdwin reached home and
a congress of horse experts was
called. It convened about the barrel
stove in Silas Halllday's store. Vari
ous plans were proposed and discard
ed and finally Baldwin said he would
try the railroad signal plan.
"You see. with the blinkers off, a
horse can see back of him on both

Hereford. Cal. In Harry Hlestand's

rooster with fighting qualities in him
that surprised HIestand, who saw his
fowl battle with a three-foot snake.
The snake was holding the rooster's
comb with bulldog tenacity, but the
rooster was equal to the occasion. He
operated his wings like a flying ma
chine, and by the time Mr. HIestand
came upon the scene had the snake
stretched on the ground.
HIestand Jabbed down a manure

The rooster is little the worse for

Origin of "Flat."
Possibly the exact origin of "flat"
as applied to an apartment will for
ever remain In obscurity. In recent
years owners of "flat houses" have
rebelled against the term most hotly.
A short while ago u tenant was
threatened with a suit for libel be
cause ho persisted In saying that ho
lived In such-and-such n flat house.
The landlord declared that tho
structure was nolther a flat house
nor a tenement, but an apartment
hotel. Tho repeated use of "flat
ho se" as a designation tended to
lower tho reputation of the placo and
drove away would-bo occupants.
