There is working on tho California street cabl system a man who has had considerable ups and downs as this world goes. Ho earns two dollars and fifty cents s day as conductor, but there was a time when he had an income ten times as great, and he did not have to work for .it, either, says the San Francisco Fran-cisco Examiner.

"Why are my eggs not boiled as I ordered?" or-dered?" he demanded. The proprietor shrugged his shoulders. shoul-ders. "Eggs boiled medium are good enough for anybody," was all ho vouchsafed. vouch-safed. "I like them that way, and I'm running this hotel to suit myself." "Then I cannot get hard eggs?" demanded de-manded the Indignant guest. "Not while I'm bossing the place," declared the Independent American landlord.
