Barry Sullivan and the Amateur.
The famous tragedian, Barry Sulli-
van, took his art so seriously that it
was very seldom indeed that he perpe-
trated a joke on the stage, although
when away from the theater he was
one of the most humorous of men. On
one occasion, however, Sullivan could
not resist the temptation of giving an
apt retort to an amateur who, as Rat-
cliff to his Richard III., had quite
overlooked the necessity of committing
his words to memory.
"During the early part of the trag-
edy," says Mr. Robert M. Sillard in his
"Life of Barry Sullivan," "this to.-,
confident amateur strutted agreeably
and elicited applause from his friends
in the front. In the tent scene he
screwed up his energies, and when
Sullivan, as Richard, started from his
knees at the conclusion of his com-
ments on his dream, exclaiming,
'Who's there?' Ratcliff in his excite-
ment stammered out the answer:
"Tis I, my lord. The early village
cock'-and then abruptly stopped, hav-
ing apparently forgotten the nexiline-

"Sullivan surveyed the stultified as-
pect of his officer for a few seconds
with a sardonic grin, as if enjoying his
agony, and at length growled out in
an audible tone:
'Why don't you crow, then?' "
Nurturing a Cheerful Spirit.
Lucky was the patient in Cedarville
who could secure the services of Aunty
Bond as his nurse, but he must make
up his mind that while all his wants
would receive due attention and he
would have a fair amount of coddling
there were some things in which he
could not count on having his own way.
"Now, you just take that look off
your face. won't you?" Sie half coaxed,

SL.et your thoughts dwell on that, and
let 'era dwell on this: There's lots o'
folks outdoors a-falling from the tops
o' buildings and a-getting run into and
over by automobiles and contraptions
of all sorts, besides those that are
yielding to temptation o' various kinds
and being sent to jail and then to states
prison. And while all these dreadful
things are going on outside, what isr
happening to you? You are getting
well at home, in peace and plenty, and,
what's more, in as handsome a walnut
bedstead as there is in all Cedarville.
"You let your mind dwell on these
things a minute, and then you turu
over and go to sleep."
"Pedigree" of "Fog."
If any Londoner crawling up to busi-
ness by train or tram through the fog
turned his idle mind to wondering why
it was called "fog" he would probably
decide that it could not have been call-
ed anything else. "Fog" is'its obvious
name. Yet there is much speculation
among philologists on this point. Dr.
Murray's dictionary suggests an inter-
esting pedigree. As far back as the
fourteenth century "fog" meant after-
grass, the rank grass that sprang up
after hay harvest or grew in the win-
ter, while in the north it meant moss.
Then "foggy" came to mean boggy.
Next it was used to mean bloated or
puffy of the flesh of men or animals,
and finally, as applied to ale or air, it
meant thick, and our modern fog was
derived back from this "foggy." Skeat,
however. goes straight to the Danish
"fog," as in "snee fog," a snowstorm,
from "fyge," to drift. The worst of
London fogs is that they do not drift
fast enough.-London Chronicle.

Her green, waving trees,
Her t balmy baeeze
And cool, shaded bowers,'
L ke beautiful dreams
Softly steals o'er me-
Stretches before me
in fairy like scees.
Where the broad orange groye
With blossoming trees
Where brown, busy bees
Cull sweets as they rove,
While the bright, golden fruit
Hangs high in the trees
And swings in the breeze
Or falls at the root..
Where the yine climbs the wall,
Sweet garlands she weaves
Of grapes and their leaves,
And presents in the fall,
With her great forests wild,
Where the magnolias bloom
And fling their perfume
To soft zephyrs mild.
Where the squirrel with a rush
That is nimble and light
And Quiet in his fright
Hides himself in the brush,
And where the panther howls,
And the sweet birds sing
And the wild woodsfring,
And the great bear growls.
Through this beautiful land
Whose waters of might
Are ever in sight
With their shores of white sand,
I pause in transports of bliss;
I never before
And never can more

were waiting to be introduced to the

and wept aloud, and I was carried out
in Reine's arms and put to bed. As I
lay weeping on my pillow, thinking of
poor little Peter's fate, of his innocence,
of his bravery, a shadow bent over me.
It was Mr. Thackeray, who had come
in to comfort the weeping child, and he
told me that Peter was saved and that
he had been adopted by a rich lady
and that he rode in a coach to school.
I was comforted. I sat up in bed and
kissed Mr. Thackeray. When he stole

Lost on the lee on Lake Bl4e.
No landmarks can be seen. There is
nothing by which to direct a course. A
man may easily be lost and wander un-
til overcome. Too often this has hap-
pened, and hardly a winter has passed
without some such disaster.
If man so lost will often trust to the
instinct of the dogs to find a way
home through the bewildering storm
and gloom. Sometimes, hao*ver, even
the animals have been at fault. In a
recent case a fisherman with three
dogs was overtaken on the homeward
way by a sudden tempest of wind and
snow. To see even a few feet must
have been impossible, and even the
dogs must have been overcome with
fright or found that they were unable
to guide themselves in the right di-
rection. Still, though two were loose.
they did not desert the man. When
the searching parties found him on the
following day he was dead, frozen to
death, but the dogs with him were
alive. One dog, which had not been
unharnessed, was mad, however, and
had to be killed at ouce.-George Hib.

Proper Treatment of Pneumonia.
Pneumonia is too dangerous a disease
for anyone to attempt t-i doctor himself,
although he may have the proper i ene-
dies at hand. A physician should always
be called. It should be borne in mind,
however, that pneumonia always results
from a cold or from an attack of the grip
and that by giving Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy the threatened att ck of pneu-
monia may be warded off. This remedy is
also used by physicians in the treatment
of pneumonia with the best results.. Dr.
W. J. Smith, of 3anders, Ala., who is
also a druggist, stys of it: "I have been
selling Chaimbcrlai'i 's Cough Remedy and
prescribing it in my practice for the pa'.st
aix years. I use it in cast-s of pneumni.t
and have always gotten the best results."

"People admired the cadi for this
exhibition of humility. He was rich,
and his house was sumptuous. But,
amid all that elegance, the net, the
sign of the man's lowly birth, was al-
ways prominently displayed.
"The story of the net spread through
the city and finally reached the ears of
the caliph. He, in due time, sent for
the cadi, took him into his favor and
made him his grand vizier.
'Thus,' said Haroun al Raschid, 'we

The fabric is used for making bags to

they are not consumed by the explo-

"Have you ever been married be-

person of seafaring aspect.
"Never, and never wanted to be be-

- "And have you ever been married be,

"No, sir," she replied with equal,
promptuess. And with a touch of humor
that appealed to the clergyman at once
she added, "'I never had a chance."
The marriage ceremony was speedily
performed, and the clergyman refused
to take any fee, telling the bride, with
a twinkle in his eye, that It had been
an unusual privilege to officiate.-New

Burns' Bent Poem.
It is said that a boy was once asked
in the poet's presence which of Burns'
works he liked best. After taking
thought with himself for a little he
declared that he liked the "Cotter's
Saturday Night" by far the best, "al-
though," he added, "It made me greet
(cry) when my father bade me read it
to my mother."
This statement seemed to impress
Burns, for presently he said to the

me greet, too, more than once when I
was writing it by my father's fireside."

Ogden could not recollect having los
any uncles lately, and it was a distinct
surprise to be greeted as a nephew by.
the stern featured old man in the puff
"Come here, you young rascal," th(
old man almost shouted as the automo
bile drew up to the sidewalk.
Without knowing why, Ogden went.
Perhaps It was curiosity, perhaps it
was because he did not happen to think
of anything else to do. At any rate he
stepped up to the automobile and took
I good long look at its occupant.
"Get in here at once," said the old
"Why?" asked Ogden.
"Why.?" repeated the old man. "Be-
cause I tell you to do so. Here I have
been 'looking for you for the past two
weeks and now you want to run away
when I find you. That is a pretty way
for :nu nly nephew to treat his uncle!"
"So you tre my uncle?" said Ogden
qulzzi"..ally Then the spirit of adven-
ture, which had been his guiding star
all his life, seized possession of him,
and he stopped into the vehicle, which
started, putting, down the avenue to-
ward Washington square.
On the way down he puzzled with
himself as to the part which he was
acting, or rather being forced to act.
As nearly as he could gather from the
conversation of the old man, he was
his nephew Rodney. The last name
had not been introduced into the con-
versation. Rodnoy seemed to have come
from the west for a visit and to have
left the house without warning, after
a more or less violent quarrel with his
"What did you want to run away
for, you young rascal? The girl is cer-
tainly as pretty a girl as you will
find In the whole country, sir. -It was
only to be expected that she should
show some coquetry about accepting
you, but I am surprised that any
nephew of mine would be such a fool
as to run away from a pretty girl. Why
did you do it, sir?" The old gentleman
was very irate.
Taking his cue from the fragmentary
information furnished him by these
remarks, Ogden, resolved to carry
through the comedy, straightened him-
self up and remarked,' with his most
"Because I trust that I am too much
of a gentleman to force my attentions
in any quarter where thgy are not
wanted." He had read this sentence in
some old fashioned book and thought
it might go well with this elderly uncle.
The old fellow looked rather pleased
"I should hare understood It, my boy.
The .sentimnnt d,'es credit to your blood
and yourabreedllng. sir. But my heart
is set on tliis match. Just tell the girl
you won't take 'No' for an answer and

:atLer dark, but as they entered the
eightt was good enough for Rodney to
'cake out the uncommonly pretty girl
seated at the piano. She got up hastily
as ihey entered the room and ran to
greet the old man. Then she turned
to Ogden and said:
"So you have come back, Cousin
.'odicey? I was under th Imnpression
hat you had left the city."
Feeling rather ashamed of himself
ojr carrying on the deception, but over-
powered by the desire for adventure,
;dnen sat down and joined in the con-
,'.sation, fencing carefully for time
,-heever he was asked a question the
iaswer to which might betray his iden-
tity. Whenever he got a chance he
-tole a glance at the girl. He fancied
nace or twice that he detected a flicker
.f amusement upon her face. She was
evidently y watching him narrowly, and
.2e conviction grew upon him that she
suspected he was an Impostor. The
,*irl was certainly a beauty,, and he
could not understand why the real
-:odney had been callous enough to
un away from her society, even If he
.iad found his presence more or less
1ty and by the old gentleman excused
hinm-elf unron the plea that he must
lake his regular afternoon nap and left
rl.e two young people alone. The mo-
.aent he was safely out of hearing the
:irl broke Into a peal of laughter and
"Did you think he had fooled me?"
She was taking it very nicely,
thought Ogden, and he braced himself
,-p enough to say:
"No; I knew you recognized my im-
,osition. But, believe me, I am not an
A.tentional impostor. Your uncle picked
,ae up on the street and swore up and
town that I was his nephew. It
,-ould not have been proper to accuse
im of falsehood, so I just came along."
The girl grew serious and said:
"You know uncle is a bit near-
ighted, and he will not, under any
irumstanees, consent to wear glasses.

;ephew. But don't you know who you

"No more idea than the man In the

generally called repartee, or being

to reach it content themselves with
some paltry imitation. It now passeth
for raillery to run a man down in dis-
course, to put him out of countenance
and make him ridiculous, sometimes

understanding, on all which occasions

the laugh on his side and then carrying

whom we borrow the word, have a
quite different idea of the thing, and

The Way to Get Press Tickets.
During the course of his investiga-

ed that enterprising young niln often
had fifty or a hundred letterheads
printed, with the same number of en-
velopes, and with these letterheads,
which represented them as editors of
a paper which had no actual exist-
ence, they set about acquiring theater
tickets. Over in Jersey City one chap a
was found who actually pointed a few h
copies of a paper at intervals to send .
to managers of theaters. Hle paid his L
