Where Unsophisticated Guest at Tam-
many Banquet Drew the Line.
An amusing story is told of a prom-
inent Irishman who arrived In New
York and fplned the Tammany forces.
His admirers prepared a banquet In
his honor and the table equipments
and menu were most elaborate. The
Irishman having always been accus-
tomed to simple methods of life was
slightly overwhelmed at the general
1'iagniflcenee. First came soup which
he eyed with some suspicion but as
he saw his companions eating with ap-
parent relish he took up his spoon
and went to work but the effort was
most perceptible. Next came an artis-
tic .salad with quantities ol fluted let-
tuce leaves and this seemed to csuse
the guest or honor more discomfort
than the soup. After the salad each
one was served with a small lobster
In the shell and with the exception of
the guest all ate eagerly of the deli-
cacy. Noticing that he did not In-
dulge someone asked him what the
matter was. This was too much lor
