High Water Mark.
Two Northern men were once dicing
in a restaurant in a Louisiana town on
the Mississippi, when they observed,
high up on the wall of the cafe, a red
mark, beneath which was this inscrip-
tion: "Inundation of 1875. High wa-
ter mark.” “Surely you don't expect
the people to believe that, the river
rose as high as that here?” protested
one of the visitors. “Not exactly," ex-
plained the proprietor blandly. "As a
matter of fact," he added, indicating a
point scratched not far above the
ground, “the water came up to here."
"Then why that inscription?” asked
the complainant. “Well, sir,” contin-
ued the proprietor, “you seen when the
mark was down there the children rub-
bed it out so continuously we had to
put it there out of their reach."—Har-
Window glass manufactories have
