Amusing Stiries Told by ths Late
Whitelaw Reid Concerning the
Eccentricities of His Famous
Chief at Table.
Several of the anecdotes that our
late ambassador to England, Whitelaw
Held, used to relate of Horace Oree-
ley, his old chief on,the Tribune, have
recently been going the rounds of the
press. Most of them refer to hiB pe-
culiarities in the office; a few to those
he displayed in company, especially at
table, where his absent-mindedness
and his queer theories combined to
produce unexpected results.
Once, when he was to take supper
with a daughter of Nathaniel Willis
she arranged the meal especially to
suit his Ideas. It was simple, and
there were plenty of the graham things
that he advocated so ardently. But
lest her own family should rebel, there
were also hot rolls upon the table. Mr.
Greeley's eye fastened upon them at
once, and ignoring the graham gems
conveniently at band, he reached for
a hot roll—and then for another. As
he began on a third, his hoetess re-
marked that Bhe was delighted to see
that he liked her rolls, but that she
had thought he did not eat such things.
"Fanny, do you always practice what
you preach?" was the unperturbed re-
Joinder; and he made hiB entire meal
off the delicious but indigestible rolls
that his own decree had banished from
the Greeley home—leaving a scant few
for his table companions, who had to
eke out their supper with the unde-
But if he was funny when he knew
what he ate, he was funnier when he
did not—as in the famous episode of
the crullers, which occurred at the
table of his boarding house. When the
crullers were passed to him, instead
at taking a single cruller, he accepted
the entire basket and absently placed
it in hiB lap as he continued his dis-
course. Presently, vaguely aware of
something there, his hand wandered
downward and encountered a cruller.
This he mechanically grasped and
raiBed to his mouth. Quite unaware
of what he was doing, be ate and
talked, and talked and ate; cruller
after cruller disappeared until the bas-
ket was empty. The company were
:onvulBed with suppressed merriment;
one or two had to leave the table, to
have their laugh out in the hall.
But the kindly landlady, distressed
on account of possible reeults, remem-
bered having heard that the best anti-
dote to indigestion was cheese. Quietly
removing the empty cake basket from
Mr. Greeley's lap, she put in its place
a plate of cheese, trusting to Provi-
dence that his habituated hand 'vould
continue its action. It did. His talk
flowed on, but his fingers found the
cheese, and it, too, disappeared to the
"Those who saw the sight," it is
declared, "were firm Jn the belief that
Mr. Greeley did not know he had eaten
anything that evening."—Youth's Com

get a deed or patent for a farm that

REALISM CARRIED TO EXCESS
Justice With a Vengeance.
A broker was talking about J. Pier-
"The money trust investigation un-
doubtedly shattered him," the broker
said "He believed that this investi-
gation was unfairly conducted. He
likened it. In my hearing, to a horse-
stealing trial out *c t.
"A jury was gathered in the street,
he said, and shut up in a room, after
a brief trial, and whoa an hour had
gone by a mob burst in and uncere-
moniously demanded wliat the verdict
" 'Not guilty,' said the foreman.
"'That won't do! said the leader of
the mob fiercely. 'You'll have to do
better than that.' And he shut the
jury up again.
"In half an hour the door was
opened once more.
"'Well, gents, vour verdict!' said
" 'Guilty,' the foreman said.
"There were hurrahs from
crowd, and the leader said:
" 'Correct. You can go now.

Some of us hand out. advice only
when we have an ax to grind.
An abridged Hlble is being advo-
cated—one that will contain only the
vital parts of the great book, and
that omits hundreds of pages of mat-
ter now not read at all except by stu-
dents. No doubt such a Bible would
become instantly popular, because it
would all be interesting and to the
point In this age, none except stu-
dents will wade through very long
books Everybody wants the truth
boiled down to the very shortest space.
The (treat story of the crucifixion is
told in very few words, and all the es-
sentials of the Bible for the average
person could easily be covered in one-
fifth the pages required for the whole
Hewers of Wood.
The origins of the Futurist and
Cubist schools of Sculpture have not
been inquired into closely enough.
None has thought yet to connect these
artistic experimenters with those
sturdy hewers who evolved the arche-
type, the wooden cigarstore Indian,
or, by way of variation, Turk. Move
the calendar on six hundred years;
would any expert authority, coming
upon the carved head of Mile. Pogany
and one of the hewn Indian tribe in
the ruins of New York, deny that they
had come from the same hand?
Pure inspiration suggest the con-
nection. Let another follow the clew.
This is simply to note one cigar store
Indian on the Bowery, the work of an
original genius. The figure of the In-
dian is of the familiar school, and
the coloring without cUstlnctlon. But
In the Indian's hands the workman
placed cleverly a real old flint-lock

Adrianople has so often been sub-
ject to battle, murder and BUdden
death that its latest capture by the
Balkan allies will Beem but one more
familiar chapter in its annals. Eight-
een hundred years ago it was taken
by Emperor Hadrian from the Hess!
tribe. In 323 it was the scene of a
battle between Connstantine and Li*
cinlus, and here Emperor Valeus made
his great stand against the Goths In
1205, Baldwin, emperor of Constanti-
nople, was defeated, made prisoner,
and killed by the Bulgarian Czar Kalo-
yan, and finally the city was taken by
Murad I., and became the Turkish
capital and continued so until the fall
of Constantinople in 1453.
Quiet Men Should Wed Vivacious
Women, an English Opinion,
Expressed in Print.
"Does the average man prefer the
demure, coy kind of girl or the
bright and vivacious girl -in all proba-
bility a flirt—and which kind of a
girl makes the better wife?" This Ib
the question on which a modern girl
asks opinion through a Loudon news-
"I have read In your paper many
opinions on the modern girl given by
young men," she writes, "but 1 have
not found an answer to the question
which countless other girls besides
myself would like answered.
"It seems to me that the average
man marries the coy, quiet girl, but
after a few years of married life is
apt to seek the soctety of the viva-
clous girl, very often at the expense of
his wife's happiness."
Here are tome opinions of London
Rev. C. H. Grundy, vicar of St.
Peter's, Brockley, believes in the at-
traction of the opposite.
"1 think the quiet man generally
marries, and generally should marry,
the vivacious girl," he says, and the
bright, vivacious man, on the con-
trary, prefers and gets on better with
"Some of the quietest men I have
known," he said, "thoroughly enjoy
the vivaciousness of their wives,
"Men like contrasts. You don't
want a replica of yourself You want
variety. A wife who Is your double
doubles your dullness.
"The best wife is the 'contrast' wife,
and if you are both alike your home is
dull and monotonous."
At a poet's luncheon In Philadelphia
Alfred Noyes, the English writer, said:
"My success, such as it is, has been
due to perseverance and modesty. In
fact. In the beginning of my career,"
he said, "I used to tear up a poem ten
times before I felt satisfied to submit
it. and I used to submit it ten times
and then feel satisfied to tear It up."

Lack of Drapery Would Seem to Have
Furnished Excellent Incentive for
A mother in Worcester, Mass., who
had orthodox views, had told her chil-
dren the Garden of Eden story. The
children were greatly impressed. One
afternoon, returning from town, the
mother found the palms and ferns had
disappeared from the veranda. Going

one of the boys, minus clothing, re-
clining under a big fern, while anoth-
er, equally clothesless, was standing by
a palm. They enlightened her by ex-
plaining that they were playing Adam
and Eve in the garden.
At that minute her youngest boy,
not three, came into the room as na-
ture had first given him to the world,
except that he wore a silk hat on his
head and carried a cane
"And pray who are you?" asked the
The little onfe looked up at her and
smiled as he said: "I am the Lord

Backers of Brook Farm.
The men who organized "Brook
Farm" and made a community of it,
in 1841, were Charles A. Dana, George
Ripley, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Theo-
dore Parker, Nathaniel Hawthorne,
George William Curtis and Dr. EUery
('banning. Margaret Fuller was also
interested in the experiment.
It turned out to be a failure, because
enough was not earned to support it
It was located at WeBt Roxbury, Mass.
This community was organized "to
substitute a system of brotherly co-
operation for one of selfish competi-
tion." Each member of the community
had to work a certain number of
hours each day for the common good.
The property was equally divided, and
the products of the land were sold.
Septicemia, Not Tuberculosis.
Tuberculosis germs, like all other
germs, are not infectious until their
habitat becomes putrid from oxygen
starvation, and the disease they then
can transmit Is the one known to the
profession as septic infection or sep-
ticemia, and not tuberculosis.
Cattle nor man can be on foot when
septicemic fever is once developed,
and cattle must be in this state be'
fore their meat can be said to be in<
fectlous, and then the infection is not
of a tuberculous character, but strict-
ly of a putrescent character.—Stuffed
