THE Kirby county Banner seems
to be neglecting its duty to its read-

formation as to the proportions of
their new county.

years ago against the purchasers of
St. Andrews Bay property was de-
cided last week against the plaintiffs.

the columns of the Kirby county

REPORTS come from the far north-
east that business is slowly but cer-

good news,. and can only be attiib-
nted to the fact that public confi-
dence in the currency is crystalizing.
Republicans can hardly claim that it
comes from the prospect of an in-
crease in tariffs, tor the most conser-
vative predict that it will surely be
July, and probably August, before a
new tariff law will be enacted and
take effect.

Not one in ten adults know how to
breathe. To breathe perfectly is to
draiv the breath in long, deep inhala-
tions, slowly and regularly, so as to
relieve the lower lungs of all noxious
accumulations, Shallow breathing
won't do this.
I have overcome nausea, headache,
sleeplessness, seasickness and even
more serious threatening by simply
going through a breathing exercise-
pumping from my lower lungs, as it
were, all the malarial inhalations of
the day by long, slow, ample breaths.

sure of standing where you can in-

ly tried, I shall be surprised.

for oil inspectors throughout the
state. Florida has been imposed
upon for the past several years in an
almost unbearable manner by the
poor grades of oil that has been
dhipjped here, as a result of the ab-
sence of suitable inspectors. The
grade of oil used has a direct bear-
ing upon the safety of the household,
and should be given attention as a
matter of self-preservation. If the
present legislature would dispense
with many of the ludicrous measures
now under consideration and replace
them by proposals for the protection
of the citizens, much higher com-

TinkceriiIg Wit lorida's Most
Extensive Industry.
As if to immortalize himself by
striking a blow at 'Florida's greatest
industry, Senator Fuller has intro-
duced a bill to regulate the taking of
fish in Florida waters.
It would be all very well and pro-
per to put reasonable restrictions up-
on the taking of fish from the inland
waters of the state: but it reaches to
a point of absurdity when it is pro-
posed to apply the same restrictions
to the waters of the Gulf or the At-
lantic and the tributary bays and
bayous from which a large contin-
gent of the population of the state
ekes out a scanty subsistence by con-
ducting fishing operations.
When the migratory habits of the
mullet and other gulf and ocean fish
is taken into consideration and the
certainty that in their migrations
more of their numbers will be de-
stroyed by enemies in their own ele-
ment than could possibly be taken by
all the fishermen in the state, no mat-
ter how long a seina or what sized
mesh be used, the folly of putting re-
strictions upon this source of revenue
becomes manitestlv apparent.
The following is from a report of
the senate proceedings:
Senator Fuller-Senate bill No.
87: "An act to regulate the catching
or taking of fish in the waters of the
state of Florida." The bill as amend-
ed provides that, it shall be unlawful
for any person to use gill nets or
seines in the waters of any creek, bay
or bayou or waters in the state be-
tween June 15 and August 15, or to
catch mullet between the lst day of
November and the 31st day of De.
cember. The bill was made the spe-
cial order for the afternoon, and the
senate then took a recess.
In the afternoon the senate resum-
ed consideration of the bill and Sen-
ator Palmer of the Eleventh offered
the following amendment: In line 1,
section 1, strike out all after the en-
acting clause and substitute therefore
the Following:
Section 1. That from and after
the passage of this act it shall be un-
lawful for any person or persons to
catch with any seines or nets any fish
in the waters of this state, between
the 15th day of Juno and the 15th
day of August of each and every
year, or to catch any mullet in said
waters between the 1st day of No-
vember and the 3lst day of Decem-
ber in each year: Provided, That this
aw shall not be construed to pro-
hibit the catching of fish in cast-nets
or by hooks and lines.
Sec. 2. It shall oe unlawful for any
person or persons to catch any fish in
any of the waters of the state of Flor-
da with any seine or net, bait and
east-nets excepted., the meshes of
which shall be less than one and one-
half inches.
Amendments have also been offei-
d that no seine more than 300 yards
n length shall be used.

Supremely Ridictlous.
Horace once said that *"ian in the
glow of his enthusiasm toj often be-
comes ridiculous.' SNAely in the
time of Horace, this expre.siun could
hardly have been aimed at Repre
sentative Stockton of Dmval county;
but even had it been coined for that
special purpose it could bave found
no more appropriate application;
as is exhibited by the introiluctiuon
by that gentleman of a bill in the
Florida legislature, compelling :he
various railroads toopablish the
names of all persons recei ing passes.
It may possibly be tie purposee of
Mr. Stocklton to secure the lpublica-
ion of those names in or,- to dis-
*play thm ,i.foue poui.iu a
paupers, or people (deI ndeiit upon
the cou.ticies of the roads for travel-
ing facilities; but such 'an idea is
most erroneus from two points of
view: first, passes are often given as
compensation for services rendered,
and, second, they aec given as tokens
of friendship to those with whom
railroads have become acquainted.
Mr. Stockton should forever bear
in mind it is no more a concern of
the state government that the rail-
roads choose to transport certain in-
dividuals freo of charge than it is for
an, individual through friendliness an
invitation to a neighbor or acquaint-
ance to ride in his wagon or boat,
and that the railroads should be per.
mitted to exercise their own judg-
ment in this respect.
If Mr. Stockton would study legis-
lative jurisdiction and authority
closely and intelligently he might
discover the grave error into which
he has fallen, and by which lie will
be looked upon by an intelligent peo-
ple in a most humiliating and ex-
ceedimgly ridiculous attitude. Mr.
Stockton, remember thy position,
and pay regard to thy requirements,
and thus merit the approbation which
will necessarily fall as thy reward.

Sugar Electrically Extracted.
Considerable curiosity, says the
Electrical Engineer, is shown as to
the organization oj a new sugar com-
pany as reported in the newspapers,
with a capital of $50,000,000, all of
which it is said by persons in a po-
sition to know, is intended to be used
immediately, otherwise the company
would not at once have paid th(, stale
the full fee of $10,000 on the amount
of capital named for the privilege of
organization. An effort to conceal
the real purpose of the corporation
was made by alleging that the only
object was to make use of the prod-
ucts of cornstalks, such as corn-pith
cellulose for car wheels, etc., but the
main object of the company, it is said,
is to manufacture sugar by a patent
electrical process invented by Mr.
Marsden, not only out of cornstalks,
but out of other raw material not
specified, and that some of the well-
known sugar refiners are really in-
terested in the company. It has been
demonstrated that sugar can be made
out of cornstalks, and if the Marsden
process for doing so by electricity
proves to be an economic success as
well, it may be a new departure in
the sugar refining Indastry. The in-
ventor of the electrical process is
Mark W. Marsden, and the corpo-
rators of the company are Richard C.
Ellis, John McCormic.kPeter H. Ev-
ans and James A. Clark, all of Phil-
adelphia, arid John R. Williams, of

Money the Great Magnet.
Werner Boecklin in Age of Thought.
To the average reader of your pa-
per it might appear as if there were
unlimited room for improvement in
man's social and individual status.
Your aim arid desire seems to' be to
diffuse liberty and other utopian
moonshine over this and other coun-
tries. Great waste of energy, oh my
bother lunatic! Accordhin'g to the
ieviNed catechlism; WVha is the chief
end of mnan? Ansu er in chotu-: "To
accumulate nioney."
You will not deny that our advance
in knowledge and civiliz',tiion hai
been marching on steadily now foir a
number of years; that even thtf dull-
ept of us has a glim mering o wtlir
we are here for. Not to speak of the
people on the planet Mars, who are
reported to be 'way ahead ,,f the
dwellers on this globe in numerous
ways, we may at least admire with
justifiable pride the onward inarch of
these United States of ours, where
the divine right of kings has been
relegated to the lumber room and in
its place the divine right of boodle
has been universally installed. Here
the people save the national honor by
paying the interest on colossal debts
contracted for the benefit of the mon-
eyed patriots and foster national pros-
perity by submitting to swinging
tariff duties on their daily wants. The
people also secure all national, state
and municipal advantages and com-
forts by devoting the bulk of their
earnings to paying taxes. As the
poet laureate said: "Taxes to the
right of us; taxes to the left of us;
taxes in front and behind," or words
to that effect. We regularly and du-
tifully send our so-called represent.
ties to congress, to the state legis-
latures, municipal councils, where
they grind out laws by the ton and
carry the science of boodle to its high-
est perfection. No laws are ever re-
pealed-if ever so obsolete-so long
as any possible fees or fines are col-
lectable for the breaking of them; as
for instance our Sunday laws. Like-
wise will all church property go tin-
taxed as long as the deficiency in the
state revenue can be made up by add-
ing it to the burden of the taxpayers.
All of which goes to prove that Pro-
fessor Draper was evidently mistaken
in what he said about "the ecclesi-
astical spirit no longer inspiring the
policy of the world." and if, as he
asserts, "military favor in behalf of
taith has disappeared," our military
ardor in behalf of our plutocracy and
our political and corporate Jeremy
Diddlers is very much alive yet. All
the same we are marching on. You do
not seem to see, or duly appreciate,
our steady. onward push. Very soon
we shall shine as a well disciplined
infant school, a sort of American
kindergarten. We have our in-
spectros of milk, oil, meat, butter, or
wihat not; our officials, spies and
pimps; our Barnacle families. our"
commissioners, boards, committees,
censois. brass buttons, et hoc genus
omne. All these patriots pocket
their salaries, perquisites, fees, and
so on, for which they do as little as
they can, and do that as badly as
possible. *
And now, after this array of proofs
-not a tithe of what might be mus-
tered-of our glorious civilization,
if thei-e are still any doubting Thom-
ases among us, let them read the
daily papers, dilligently and prayer-
fully, and they will surely be con-

The word "capitalist" is simply an-
other word for the man who saves and
:who finds out what the public will buy.
.This faculty for saving and for finding
:out what the public wants is a rare fac-
e ulty. It is so rare that I believe relia-
*ble statistics prove that 95 per cent of
men in business-that is, of men who
employ others-faiL They fail through
their incapacity or want of diligence.
Only an infinitesimally small- number
of them achieve fortune. They may be
called the explorers of the race. We
profit by their errors. For one who in-
vents a sewing machine or a telephone
10,000 lapse into poverty. Nothing re-
quires a more delicate combination of
qualities than the creation and conduct
of a great business. The conditions of
success are often too minute for obser-
vatdon. The life is full of terrible anx-
ieties, especially in what is caDled
"hard times," when money is difficult
to get. The penalty of failure is tre-
mendous, and yet the number of us who
are ready to tell the capitalist how to
carry on his business, how to pay his
men, whom to employ, and on what
4erms,.i very large. It those who can
carry on business themselves were only
one-thouandtb part as numerous as those
wbo can tell how it ought to be carried
on by others, the happiness of man

be too late, as it will be impossible to
fill such late orders; because only
enough to fill orders in hand will be
printed. The engravings and other
extra expense involved in the publica-
tion of this series demands a heavy out-
lay of cash, and the publisher is bearing
it alone, save the trifle which will be
realized from the sale of extra copies,
and present indications are that nearly
all of those who were so deeply interest-
ed in the publication of this description
are perfectly willing and expect the ex-

selves. The price of these extra Gopies
will be 25c. per dozen, or $1.50 per
hundred, and may be divided between
the series, or may be of any particular
issue, provided the order is received in
time. The engravings alone to be used
will cost about $40 and it would take
the profit on several thousand copies to
meet even this. one item of extra ex-

tunity may have something to do with

In Feeble Health

Unable to do Her Work Nervous
and Tired- All These Troubles
Cured by Hood's Sarsaparilla.
SFor the past four years I have been in
feeble health, and for two years past,
owing to change of climate, I have not
been able to do my work. I was nervous
and had a tired feeling and was under the
treatment of physicians, but I continually
grew worse. My husband insisted on my
trying Hood's Sarsaparilla and I finally
consented, and began taking it the first of
June, 1896. The first bottle did me so
much good that I continued with it, and
after taking four bottles and one bottle of
Hood's Pills I am able to do my work,
and the tired, nervous feeling is entirely
cured." Mas. G. N. HosEA, Suwanee, Ga.

Mobile Register: The question
often asked and neyer answered, and
never to be answered, is whj do peo-
ple wish to be what they are not? It is
no matter what one has in the way
of wordly or physical prosperity, he
nevertheless, desires to be something
or somebody else, believing that
wherever he is not there is the con-
tentment he i lacking. The king
would like to be the peasant and the
weasant would like to be king. It is
an old story, al.vays the same, but

well illustrated by the late Billy
Birch, the minstrel. He was the
most successful in his line of busi-
ness, he was before the public for
forty years, and made a million of
money; yet, he thoaglt he was cut
out for something else than to be a
funny man. So, when he had accu-
mulated a fortune, he became what
he thought he orght to have been
all along, that is to say, a financier.
In a short six months he lost all his
money in speculation, and for the
rest of his life was supported by his
wife, who took in boarders for a live-

The Best Remedy for Rheuma-
Fairhaven, (N. Y.,) Register.
Mr. James Rowland, of this village,
states that for twenty-five yeats his wife
has been a sufferer from rheumatism. A
few nights ago she was in such oain that
she was nearly crazy. She sent Mr.
Rowlana j6r he 'doctor, but he had read
of Chamberlain's Pain Balm and instead
of going for the physician he went to the
store and secured a bottle of it. His wife
did not approve of Mr. Rowland's pur-
chase at first, but nevertheless applied
the Balm thoroughly and in an hour's
time was able to go to sleep. She now
applies it whenever she feels an ache or
a pain and finds that it always gives re-
lief. He says that no medicine which
she had used ever did her as much good.

Origin ot the Polka.
Sixty years ago an Austrian cook,

amusement. The cobk's mistress,
having surprised her during her im-

and sing in the presence of a dancing-
master, who took notes ol the per-
tormaince. That was the origin of

The Voice ot the Sea.
Written for the Broy.
Who e'er hath dwelt by the sea,
Tho' no more than a year and a day,
A mystic bond is ever woven
Between them forever and aye.
Like the call of a loving mother,
Luring its child to her side,
The voice will come to his listening
With a dream of the swelling tide.
It's billows of storm entreating,
And commanding his return
Back to the paths on the shore,
Eternity's lesson learned.
All the heart of his soul responding
To the throb of the lashing foam,
A power drawing him back
Where e'er he may chance to roam.
The magical voice of music
Lives on in the voice of the sea;
And Nature's hand sweeps chords divine
In many a varying key.
In the hush of the coming dawn
Many an anthem sweet and low,
By the voice of the sea is chanted
To a rythmn of its ebb and flow.
O'er its gently heavi'g bosom
Under the glowing light of noon,
Hope's song re-echoes tones triumphant,
Rejoicing in life's sweet boon.
Under the falling veil of twiligh',
Making the sunset colors dim;
The rippling wAtves abound in trains
Of Mother Nature's vesper hymn.
Midnight, sable pall, star-bedimmed,
Shrouding the waters far and near;
Waters that murmur poetic knells
O'er the dead that slumber here.
Hushing, soothing them so softly,
Pressing them close on its breast;
Hiding them from a troubled morrow,
Watching forever their silent rest.
At morning, noon and dewy eve,
And in the silent midnight hour;
Ever and ever hehe ars the voice,
And feels its mystic power.

Railroad News.
ED. BuoY:-It may be of interest
to your readers to know that since
my bicycle trip to Dothan in the in-
terest of an electric railroad from St.
Andrews northward, I have made
quite an extended search by way of
correspondence, (as president of the
St. Andrews Improvement associa-
tion) among railroad magnates and
capitalists, setting forth the needs of
a railroad, with the view of inducing
immediate action on the part of cap-
ital to the early consumation of the
proposed enterprise.
I can say with pleasure that the
replies to my letters of inquiry are of
such a nature as to lend encourage-
ment. and I feel repaid for my time
and expense, and am sanguine that
we will have a railroad within tv o or
three years, at the least from St.
Andrews to Wewahitchka.
It is known that Eufaula wants a

the south.
Yours for enterprise,

Firing Dynamite by Water.
In these days of invention the most
extraordinary discovery causes very
little astonishment. Still, ift is a bit
surprising to hear that the newest
method ot firing dynamite is by the
use of water. Electricity or a time-
fuse were the modes in use till now,
and both had their disadvantages.
The present ingenious arrangement
is as follows:
A sensitive detonator, which ig-
nites at the temperature of boiling
water, is placed in contact with the
charge of dynamite, and around it is

Te purpose of this Association is to Improve the Count ry adjacent to St
Andrews Bay and to
Develop its Resources as a Fruit-Growing Country.
!'o accomplish this the Association proposes to Sell Lands in tractsof Two-
anda-half and FiveAcres to such parties only as will improve them by the
Erection of Houses. Fences and such Permanent Improvements as will enhance the
value of each tract so disposed of, and particularly to
Plant them out in Trees, Plants and Vines,
To the end that in the shortest practicable time every such tract shall be a
Source of Revenue to its Owner.
The first question wh;ch will naturally be asked will be: "Is this Asso-
ciation reliable"? And the answer to it is: Any person employing the Association
to make improvements may deposit an approximate payment of the estimated cost of
the same with any responsible business man or firm doing business on the Bay or in
Bank at their own home to be paid over only when the Association shall satisfacto-
rily show that the improvements have been made according to agreement.
The Association will not only improve and plant, but watch and care for
all property entrusted to its keeping,guarding against, forest fires, dishonest pilferers
for damages from any cause possible to be prevented.
From a careful estimate of the probable expense and income of a fruit
-plantation in the St. Andrews Bay country a few figures are given:
Priceoflana per acre, say $25 to $50; cost of clearing, say $20; 'ost of planting 1st
year, say $30; cost of cultivation each year thereafter, $20(,
It is notextravagant to estimate that a 1-acre vineyard will on the third
year, if properly cultivated, yield $200 worth of fruit and of peaches nearly or quite
the same, while figs should do even better than that. Then, though perhaps a little
longer, some of them, in coming into profitable bearing may be named pears, apricots,
nectarines, mlums, prunes, mulberries, olives, Japan persimmons almonds English
walnuts, Japai. chestnuts, pecans, and .any other varieties of fruits and nuts. which
are almoastcertain to flourish here; while oranges and citrus fruits,.though not con-
sidered certain yieldlarge returns oftener than they miss
The Secretary of the Assodiation will give particular attention to an-
*wering letters of inquiry, and the Buoy will in its answers to correspondents an-
swer all questions asked it. -
R E M E M B E R the Association Lands will be sold on Easy
Terms of Payment; but improvements must be paid for as satisfactory proof is given
that the work has been perforuied. CORRE P 0 N D E N CE SOLICIT E D.

is surrounded by a piece of lamp-
wick. When the whole airange-
nient is sunk to the bottom of a bor-
ing, the wick absorbs wat6r from the
surrounding earth and conveys it to
the lime. Of course the lime gets hot
and heats the detonator. And, in
half a minute after leaching bottom,
the dynamite does its work.
Tho great advantage of this means
of producing the explosion is that
there is no flame.

Trouble Ahead.
Indianapolis Journal.
"Mr. McKinley is likely to see
some pretty lively times," said the
passenger with the silk skull cap.
"You bet your boots." said the
passenger with the hay-colored neck-
whiskers. "The Baptists hev nom-
inated one man for postmaster doein

an' they both sent dillygations to

The Split Wafers.
A man who now stands high in the
mercantile community related to me the
following little incident of his early
At the age of 161 entered the store of
Silas Sturdevant as a clerk. One day,
shortly after my installment into the
office, I was employed in sealing and
superscribing a lot of business circulars
-several hundred of them. That was
long before the day of gluten, and I
used small red wafers for securing the
missives. While I was thus busy Mr.
Sturdevant came into the counting
room, and when I observed that he was
watching me I worked the best I could,
hoping to get a word of approbation. By
and by he spoke to me:
"Young man, don't you think half a
wafer would secure one of those cirncu-
lars just as well as a whole one?"
I looked up, probably exhibiting as
much disgust as surprise.
"If you split you-ar wafers," he added,
"you will accomplish all you desire,
and at the same time make a saving of
just one-half."
He turned away, aid while I was
thinking what a mean old wafer split-
ter he was, a lady entered who had been
appointed one of a committee to obtain
subscriptions toward building an orphan
asylum. One public spirited man.had
given the land, and now they wished to
raise $200,000, if possible, for the build-
ings and necessary endowments. Mr.
Sturdevant said he had already been
consulted on the subject.
"Yes," thought I, "and I guess that's
all it will amount tol"
But he took the paper and wrote his
name, and then he said:
"I will give $5,000."
I could hardly believe my ears.
At that moment the merchant arose
to a stature of grandeur before me, and
in my heart I blessed him; for even
then I knew that the lesson of the split
wafers, with its sequel, was to be the
initial of my future success.-New
York Ledger.
Congressmen and Bribes.
A man who has been defeated for re-
election is not in a fit frame of mind to
legislate for his people. There is a sting
in defeat that tends to engender the
feeling of resentment which often finds
expression in the vote of such members
against wholesome legislation. That
same feeling often produces such a want
of interest in proceedings as to cause
the member to be absent nearly all the
second session.
Congressmen are not usually men of
means. Their congressional career has
resulted in the destruction of their
clientage or business. To a defeated

Plowing wps undoubtedly first done
with a f:.ik-'d stick, the long arm being
harnessed, ia si-j," primitive way, to an
ox or team Of oxen, and the short arm
pointed, f.ir th.* purpose of penetrating
the gr-.jun:l. Tihe plow is one of the old-
est of aiiticultural implements, and it
is a curious fact that in oriental coun-
tries the samec kind' of plow is used now
as was mt, .,..I by the writers of 2,000
years ,ago. 'h.a- piw represented on the
EgyFi an rnjomi:rimu ins of 3000 B. C.
m:iy be seen in thb valley of the Nile
today. Our pate-ut (f-ri.e has over 10,000
models of plows. In Egypt, Syria and
India there is but one, and that the one
which has been in use for thousands of
years. The plow described by Virgil,
81 B. 0., is in use in many country dis-
tricts of Italy today. In 1618 patents
were taken out by David Ramsay and
Thomas Wildgoose for "engines to plow
grounds, whether inland or upland."
In the Scriiure-s plowing with differ-
ent kinds of animals hitched together
was forbidden on account of the cruelty
involved by the unequal draft imposed
upon auinmls of different sizes working
in the same harness. In China the plow
is a sacred implement, and models are
consecrated in the temples of the gods.
As early as 1849 steam plows were pat-
ented in the United States.
The "Book of Advertisement" would,
at the present day, mislead most read-
ers by its title. It was prepared at
the command of Queen Elizabeth and
printed in 1565. The purpose of the
book was to define the doctrines, disci-
pline and ritual of the English church,
so that uniformity should be secured in
Great Britain. This book was the di-
rect origin of a denominational title in
England, for, after its publication,
Sampson, dean of Christ church, in Ox-
ford, and Humphrey, professor ofidivin-
ity at Oxford university, with others,
dissented from some of the doctrines it
contained; hence they were called non-
rnfnr,'n.q -

for support the future looks dark and
gloomy. It is then some are open to
propositions which they would never
think of entertaining if they were to go
before the people for re-election. It is
then that the attorneyship of some cor-
poration is often tendered and a vote is
afterward found in the record in favor
of legislation of a general or special
character favoring the corporation. If
an affirmative vote cannot be had, it is
often just as important that the member
should be absent. If there is ever a time
in the history of the man when he will
directly or indirectly accept a bribe, it
is then. There is less chance of detec-
tion. He is no longer a political factor.
His political enemies no longer watch
his course. The opposition newspapers
no longer criticise his conduct-"the
secret is his own and it is safe."
There are many upright men in con-
gress who would not be influenced by
defeat. But in as large a body as the
house of representatives there must al-
ways be some who would yield to temp-
tation. It is a fact that nearly all, if
not all, of the legislation that is claimed
to have been passed by corrupt influences
was enacted during these second regular
sessions of congress. -Hon. J. F. Shaf-
roth in North American Review.
A Bomb Loaded With Men.
A new bomb has been invented that
is an extr.'.nely curious affair.
It is called pioneer bomb and is
made to be fired frv.ig a cannon like an
ordinary cacr.i al. The curious part
of it is that '2itentid of -carrying lead
and explosives idis to have men inside.
The idea of the invention, explains
The Great Round World, is to fire sol-
diers into the enemy'scamp. The bomb
opens the moment it touches the ground,
the men spring out and begin to fight
the enemies within reach.
A shower of these bombs would very
seriously inconvenience an enemy, it is
to be supposed, for they would not,
quite know what to make of such as-
tounding cannon balls.
The bomb is so arranged that there is
no sudden jar or shock to the men in-
side. It is covered with a number of
rubber tubes filled with air, like the
bicycle tires." These rubbers prevent the
men from any injury which might be
caused by reaching the ground so sud-
denly. The bomb bounds along like a
rubber ball once or twice, and the sol-
diers are said to be quite comfortable
inside. -C}i,' a;', Record.
Stori~e of Prinsep.
Mr. Valentine Prinsep, the well
known English artist, is a very jolly
Briton indeed, and is fond of telling
amusing stories about himself and his
profession. Even his name proves a
source of mirth, and he likes to relate
the blunders its oddity has occasioned.
Once, when going to dine at a fashion-
able mansion, he was accosted by the
"What name, sir?" '
Great was the big artist's amusement
when he was then announced loudly
and pompously as Prince Hepp I
Mr. P4-insep's favorite anecdote is one
often told, but always good, of which
he claims to be the original narrator.
Moreover, it is a true one. An old coun-
try couple, So he relates, had strayed
into the 1anehst.r Art gallery, cata-
logue in hand, and were wandering
from room to room looking at the pic-
tures, which were numbered anew, one,
two, three and so on in each division,
instead of continuously throughout the
whole exhibition. The two old people
stopped in awe 'and admiration before
Madox Brown's heroic picture, the
"Death of King Lear."
"Wha's this un, Jinny?" asked the
old man.
"A'il see, Jarge. A'll see, of ye'll
give me a minute."
The old lady hastily turned to the
catalogue division of another room, and
read off the number corresponding to
that of the picture before them. It
chanced to be that of Landscer's famous
picture of a collie fallen over a cliff,
and just reached by the anxious shep-
herd, who calls the result of his exami-
nation of the poor beast's injuries to
his comrades on the rocks above. She
read off the title of the picture to her
"There's Life In the Oli Dog Yet."
Looking compassionately on the pic-
tured form of the aged and forsaken
king, Jarge failed to perceive anything
wrong in the name.
"So there is, gal, so there is'!" he ex-
claimed, in a burst of pity; adding,
with dropped voice and a shake of the
head at Lear, "but not much, not
much!"' '-Youth's Companion.
