HIS SYMPATHY OUT OF PLA<}«.
Geod Reason Why Author's Condol-
ences Were Not Well Received.
At a meeting of the French acad*
my a short time ago the "Immortal*"
had assembled and were conversing
informally on the subject of the elec-
tion of a new member when a well-
known writer entered the room. He
greeted his colleagues, who smiled
broadly upon him. Presently the
smiles became laughter and it dawned
upon the writer that something about
him was the cause of the hilarity.
Good-natured explanations followed
and then, stroking his left cheek, the
late arrival said: "1 fancy you are
right. I had not finished shaving when
I thought of the election here to-day
and rushed away, with the work un-
done." "Don't worry," said one of his
friends; "remember Pasteur, who con-
doled with a woman who had just lost
her husband, and thinking for the mo-
ment that it was the son who died,
said: 'You are the more to be pitied
because he was your only one.* "
STORIES TOLD IN VENEZUELA.
Gossip of South American City li
Racy in the Extreme.
An American, who knows Venefu^
la pretty well, observes In an article
in the Atlantic that he wishes that he
could retail some of the stories of
A enezuelan life heard in the restaur
rant La India—of the prominent offi-
cial (perhaps still alive) who loaded
his loot in coin on a launch which
he filled to the gunwales, and drove
her across the ocean sea to a refuge
in Curacao; of the melancholy suc-
cession of American ministers who
disgi aced us in Caracas in the days
when the spoils system was at its
worst: X, who drank from finger-
bowls and kept his neighborhood moist
with tobacco juice; Y, who suffered
from the delirium tremens; Z, whoss
wife, at dinner parties, used her nap-
kin for a handkerchief. "But Cara-
cas gossip requires a book for itself,"
Late last night it was stated
on the highest authority that
Mr, Roosevelt had not called in
his physician on account of the
proposed rebuke that Congress
may hand him.
It is reported that the Con-
gressional Record is likely to
suspend publication for
lack of copy. The editor should
introduce himself to Hon. Dick
Morgan and tell him his
troubles. The question of
what to do with so much copy
will be his next anxiety.
"What is a Democrat?" was
the question propounded by the
New York World prior to the
election and now the question
propounded by the same paper
is, "Shall the Democratic party
die?" Seems to think the re-
cent election was a wedding-.
Most democrats view it as a
A Magician Mystifies.
Two men sat in the hotel lobby
glowering at the smoke which they
blew toward the ceiling. At intervals
they broke into argument, which in-
"What's the matter with them?"
asked a salesman.
"One is the proprietor of this
hotel," answered the accommodating
clerk, "the other owns the only news-
paper in town.
Last night both went to the theater,
where a magician asked for a handker*
chief. A man jokingly handed him a
big square of muslin.
"The magician studied the cloth fot
a few minutes, and then said, dramatic
" 'Thank Heaven, there is at least
one clean sheet in this town."

"I think," said Miss Cayenne, "that
I will write a magazine story."
"Hare you thought one out?"
"Tes. I'm going to hare a man
named Hiram, another named Peleg, a
girl named Samantha and an old gray
mare, and the rest doesn't matter."
