1 LIFE OF A PROSPECT
Some years ago I went Into a store
to inquire the price of something, an
expensive thing this was, that I wanted
to buy some day when I had the price.
They were just as nice to me as they
would have been if I had come In
ready to buy and plank down the cash.
Then for the time being I forgot al)
about it, but they didn't. About a
year after my visit to the store the
salesman I had seen there came to see
me, says the New York Herald. He
was a very agreeable gentleman and
in no way insistent; lie hid just
looked in on the chance that now I
was ready to buy ; but my bank ac
count l.'L'.dn't looked up to any great
extent and I was not ready, as I told
him ; but I added that when I was
ready I would come in, and I would
come to him. Thai, I thought, endetl
it as far as hearing from them was
concerned: but not so. A year later
I had another call from the salesman,
my friend, if lie will now penult me
so to call him, on th same errand; a
pleasant call and a pleasant little talk,
but with the same result as before;
and now, a year to a day after that
second call, he has been in to see me
again. We had our usual pleasant
little talk, and then 1 asked him:
"Don't you ever give up a prospect?"
To which he answered, smilingly:
"We never give no a prospect till he

Nothing would please nio more than
to see a renaissance of American wit
and humor, writes .lames L. Ford in
the New York Tribune, but I do not
know how this is to be brought about.
Committees of the svrt assembled for,
every imaginable purpose, and which
command a degree of popular respect
that seems amazing to the sophisti
cated, are powerless in the matter.
Not even in those great universities
that offer elertive courses in nearly
everything from playwriting to plumb
ing is there a chair of wit and humor;
and, while every variety of humbug
and rascality rears its head without
rear of consequences, the sword of
ridicule, the only weapon of real
strength in the light against evil, ia
permitted to rust in its scabbard.

A Washington man, visiting Rich
mond, took a great fancy to a bright
eyed little darky who polished his
shoes. Shortly after he became in
terested in the little chap, the Wash
ington man asked his name.
"(Jen, sub,"" was the reply.
After a few moments of silence the
Washingtonian continued, "I suppose
that is an abbreviation for General?"
The word ."abbreviation'' stumped
the little reirOW ror a wmie, out ne
recovered himself. "No, suh," he said,
"it ain't exactly that. My shore
enough name is Genesis xxx, 33. So
shall rc,y righteousness answer for me
In tinvj to come Washington Jones,
but they jest calls me Gen fo' sho't."
This year'u lish stories are, doubt
less owing to the prolonged period ot
sunshine, somewhat larger and more
luxuriant than usual.

In the recent airplane contest hu
man beings apparently approached the
utmost possible limit of speed, some
where near -- miles an hour. Fastet
motion men seem unable to endure.
This appears to be the first definite
limit to the speed mania that has been
affect i?V- the Ir.miai race e er since
the breakneck rate of ten miles an
hour was predicted for the early locomotives.
