They Lunch Down Town.
"Do you know that many busbies?, meu
are half crazy when they enter a restau
rant at noon for lunch or dinner" Thi
wan mini to a reporter hy the owiu r of a
Wf!! known restaurant, who continued:
"Their ininilrt are not itjMtii what thc-y are
doing; tlieir brains aro busy ii ei.n lo
figuring and planning. Their Ixxliea left
their counting rooms, but their head re
mained. Thi-y, a. a rule, eat hurriedly,
mid any iMiriilx r of tln-iu do so mechan

that one will thro.v down one cent at tho

or lil'ty cent check, ami wait for a iiiiiiuto

who, if you entered t heir places of busi

who would never niuke u mistake iu giv

with d. lilx ration plaeo his hat beneath
Ids chair, yet when ho has done eating ho
will ruh to the rack, ami, fiei.ing honio
Imdy else's hat, go out, probably Hot dis
covering his error for u day or two. It is
A", positivn fact that not long ago a man
Milhal ' head wore out of my place a
ft I hat, which would scarcely stay on the
top of his head. Nor did ho discover his
mistake until ho reached his oflieo.
"Ono day a man stepped up to my desk
and com plained that hi: had io.-t his hat, a
very II; 10 olio which had co-,1 him iSTor ;;-!S.
J!is hat had been stolon, ho charged, and
ho was excited and angry. Would you
believe it? It was he win had htoh-u ono.
1 discovered a few minutes later that two
clays liefore ho had taken tho hat of an
other, leaving his own. Tho one he took
was of the : amo material, but hp.d been
V;i'!ia:i entire reason, being greasy and
.;.; t till, h:; wore it without discover
ing tint fa'-t until tho time ho niudo the
c jioplaii.t, idthough his own hat was a
line, brand new one.
"It 'n truly odd how men will behave
aVmt hats. Frequently ono wiJJ come
h'diling Oil1-' in his hand and tell ma ho did
not wear that when ho camo in. I look at
tho faces of thceo, and if they have but
just been hhaved, t el J litem they made the
exchange at tho barber's and djd not dis
cover their error until they came in here
Ono man made a great ado because, as ho
said, soiuo one had carried oft" his hat,
when investigation showed that ho had
worn another man's hat to the restaurant,
picking it up as ho left the olliee, but not
detecting jt tmWl ho had eaten. Going
out to eat at noon is not an interval of
rest to most business men, because there
Is no rest. They must supply tho wants
vi their inner man, but they do it without
finy rest of the brain. Their occupation
Is beforo them ulj the while, as their far
away looks show. They say and do t hings
in the most mechanical manner, and will
skip from twenty-four to forty-eight hours
in their computations. A level headed
jj:an of business insisted up and down,
while holding his own hat in his hand a
idtu bilk otio-thut it did not lelong to
Mm. lie know what ho bad worn down
town it was a whjte one, he decjarpd.
He probably had done so the day before,
hut would not be convinced of his error
until the name on tho inside of the inner
baud revealed jt to him. A man picks up
a heap of human nature ju our business,

The Colonists iu Liberia.
Capt. Holers, of the iTonrovia, says:
"From what I have seen of the colonists
in Liberia, 1 believe their chances for suc
cess are equally as good &3 they would be
ui the 'south. It is true that the African
fever, iu many cases, renders them, in
kpable to work for awhile, but when
niev becomo thoroughly acclimated they
find no difficulty in making a living. A
large proportion of them are prosperous
and are hoarding up considerable wealth."
Mrs. M. B. Merriman, a white mission
ary, differs materially from Capt. Rogers
and is bitter in her denunciation of the
cruel manner in which the negro colonists
are treated. She said: "I hare been
among the negroes of the south, and I
havo seen them at their worst. I have
been among tho natives of Africa for
years as a missionary, but never have I
witnessed such abject poverty, squalor
and wretchedness as prevails among the
ti.aLO colonists in Liberia. It is true that
tl:o colonization society furnishes them
with land to work and keens them in food
for six months from their arrival. Bnt
whst does it avail them? They are there
