SPENT FREELY IN PROSPERITY.
Speculator Scorned to Make Provision
for Lean Years.
The late Townsend Percy, specu-
lator and promoter, who made and lost
more than one fortune in the course
of his life, used to be fond of repeating
some of his mother's witticisms at his
expense, generally brought about by
bis extravagances during his periods
of prosperity. Once Percy had driven
four-in-hand for a year, when an un-
fortunate "deal" made it necessary for
him to reduce expenditures and sell
his horses, on which occasion she said
"Townsend, don't you think that it
would be better to drive one horse
four years, Instead of four horses one
Another time, when on the verge of
financial crash, Percy still owned a
considerable stable, and gave no out-
ward sign of pecuniary embarrass-
ment. His mother met an old friend
of the family about this period, who
congratulated her on her son's suc-
cess in life. "I am glad that Townsend
is doing so well," said the friend.
"Yes, indeed," remarked the old
lady. "Townsend has six horses and
seven carriages and eight dollars."—

Lucid, But Wrong.
When the steam engine was Invent-
ed a learned Englishman wrote a book
in which he set forth his theory that
it would be Impossible to propel a ves-
sel across the ocean by steam power, j
The writing was lucid, the reasoning
was correct, but the premises were
wrong, and the first volume of this ex-
ellent work that came to America :
,viis brought over in a steamboat, |
hereby demonstrating that one fact
may carry away a volume of theory.

Worth of Jewels There.

to cut the price on all heavy Fan-
cy Broad Cloths, Cravenets

Abdul-Aziz, sultan of Morocco, is
taking no chances of losing his per-
sonal jewelry in the course of one of
the frequently recurring disturbances
in his country. Locked up in the
j vaults of a bank near Charing Cross,
London, the jewels, valued at $5,000,-
' 000, are guarded night and day. They
occupy a space less than the size
of a bushel basket and lie about thirty
; feet below the level of the Strand.
Not far away, in the same vault,
i are several million pounds' worth of
unclaimed jewelry, some of which was
deposited there during the French
revolution. French people, fearful of
j being robbed in the reign of terror,
' secretly conveyed their possessions to
London and a vast quantity ha* been
left uncalled for. The bank authoriUes
have failed in every effort to ocate
the original owners' heirs.
An offer of $1,250,800 as a loan oa
the sultan's jewelry has been made,
but the sultan is anxious to raise
much more than that.

If flsh is the greatest brain food, ,
as scientists have said, then Boston
is in a fair way to outstrip the rest of
the country In brain development with-
out half trying. In a recent two days 1
1 ti ere were brought to T wharf j
—the greatest fish mart of the coun-
try—more than two million pounds of
fish, including large and small cod,
haddock, hake, pollock, halibut and ;
various other species of the deep.
This enormous catch has been brought
by 100 schooners, round numbers, 65
of which arrived on one day and the
remainder the day following.
Granting that the fleet of 100 schoon-
ers average 20 men to the vessel
(which probably iB a high estimate),
and the average sum coming to each
fisherman, outside of the captain, is
about $20, representing from five days
to between two and three weeks at
sea. Of course, the sums vary, accord-
ing to the vessel, the catoh and the
time spent at sea. Some schooner*
brought In as high as 75,000 pounds
and some little more than 5,000; some
had five men in the crew and some 25;
some caught plenty of large cod and
some very few.—Boston Transcript

A Word to the Wise.
A corporation conducting a series
of quick lunch places accords con-
spicuous position to a placard reading
"A Suggestion—Perhaps a large
number of our patrons who daily fav-
or us with their money, instead of
taking luncheon at 12 o'clock could
just as conveniently come at 12:45
p. m., and thus find more comfortable
seats; or they might arrange to fix
1:30 as lunch time, and thereby be
afTorded still more elbow space."
Managers at several of the branches
situated In business sections are au-
thority for the statement that since
the advent of the signs the high noon
attendance has been larger than be-
fore.—N. Y. Press.

Charity's Biggest Achievement.
The highest achievement of char-
ity is to love our enemies; but to
bear cheerfully with our neighbor's
failings is scarcely an Inferior grace.
It is easy enough to love those who
are agreeable and obliging; but to
love one who is cross, perverse, tire-
some, is as unpleasant a process as
chewing pills. Nevertheless, this, the
best way of practising it, is to put our-
selves in the place of him who tries
