The usual bet was made not long
ago in London that a certain man
with a wonderful palate would
identify twenty-five different sorts
of wine by tasting them, one after
another, with eyes shut. Up to
the twenty-fourth he mentioned
each correctly. Being puzzled
what to give him for the twenty-
fifth, his judges were driven to
give him water. He turned it over
and over with his tongue, asked for
a second mouthful, considered it
with a perplexed expression, at
last had an inspiration. "Of
course," he exclaimed, "it's the
stuff—I don't know what it's

Ranch went to Montana to buy buf-

the herd reached tbe ranch he found
that he had thirty-three in the two
cars.io which they were shipped. Tbe

for scandal: Take a grain of false-
hood, a handful of runabout, the
same quantity of nimble tongue, a
sprig of the herb of backbite, a
teaspoonful of don't-you-tell-it, six
drops of malice and a few drops of
envy, add a little discontent and
jealously, and strain through a bag
of misconstruction. Cork it up in
a bottle of malvolence and hang it
up on a skein of street yarn. Keep
it in a hot atmosphere, shaking it
every few days. Take a few drops
before walking out and the desired
result will follow.
