looking young fellow in evening dre-sd
cumo up to nku as I was standing in the
lobby and asked me what ox had been
reserved for him. I said I did not know
him who was he? He said he had met
the manager of the theater that after
noon, and he had lx;eu told to come to
the theater and his name would be left
for a box.
Unfortunately he entered too much
into details. He told me that his name
was Leslie, and he was a leader writei
and subeditor of The Horning Wire. As
I knew my manager was rather in the
habit of giving these somewhat vague
invitations to the theater, I thought it
better to err on the side of politeness, bo
I gave Mr. Leslie the ticket for the box,
and he thanked me and said he would
go to a neighboring restaurant where
his friends were dining ami bring mem
on to the theater.
As the principal piece was commenc
ing 1 saw Mr. Leslie enter the theater
and go to his lox accompanied by a
well dressed pany iwo jjuuus unit a
p nil;'in;ui. I thought nothing more ot
this, but about 10 o'clock who .should
come into i'iy room but the son of the

A Japanese doctor never dreams of
nskinrr a noor caticnt for a fee. There
is a proverb among tho medical frater
nity of Japan, "When the twin enemies,
poverty and disease, invade a home, then
he who takes aught from that home,
even though it ba given liim, is a rob
ber." "Often." said Dr. Matstunoto, "a doc
tor will not only give his timo and his
medicines freely to the sufferer, but he
will also give him money to tide over his
dire necessities. Every physician has his
own dispensary, and there are very few
apothecary shops in the empire.
"When a rich man calls in a physi
cian he does not erpect to be presented
with a bill for medical services. In
fact, no such thing as a doctor's bill is
known in Japan, although nearly all the
other modern practices are in vogue
there. The doctor never asks for his
"Tho strict honesty of tho people
makes this unnecessary. When he is
through with a patient a present is
made to him of whatever sum tho pa
tient or his friends may deem to be just
compensation. The doctor is supposed
to smile, take the fee, bow and thank his
patron." ban Francisco Chronicle.
A man who had evidently arrived by
the train walked into a boarding house
in a Texas town and asked-
"Is Mr. Day in?"
"What Day, sah?" asked the iorter.
"What do 1 know about him? Do 1
look like a detective? If 2lr. Day isnt
in, tell Mr. Week to step out here.'"
"What week do you refer to, sah?"
"Oh, last week or week before Christ
mas! Do you take me for an almanac?
Who runs this shebang, anyhow?"
"De Widow Flapjack, sah.'
"Well, then, you tell her to take down
her sign. I read on the sign out there,
'Boarding by Day or Week,' and now it
seems that both of 'em lit out. That
Bign is put up there to deceive the trav
eling public. 1 don't believe there are
any such people living," and he picked
up his gripsack and swung himself on
board of a street car. Texas Siftings.

CO-OPERATIVE J YACHTING.
An Engilitli Method of Crulli Without
ltnyini; mi I'.xpeiirtlvn lloat.
It is becoming more and more popular
every year in England for steamers to
go out with passengers bound on a regu
lar yachting cruise. In summer they go
cruising up among the fiords of Norway
and visit the North cai. In wirjt r
they go to the Mediteranean or the West
Indies. A lot of ieople on pleasure bent
engage passage and have all the pleasure
of a cruise on a steam yacht without the
trouble and expense of owning one.
Richard ,7. Goodwin, a retired mer
chant of this city, who has made a trip
on one of these vessels to the North cape,
said in conversation with a reporter re
cently: "I was delighted with my ex
perience, and don't know of a better way
to spend an outing. Captain It. D. Luu
ham was the pioneer in this service, lie
commanded the British steamer Ceylon,
and ran her with great success on various
pleasure cruises to Norway, tho Baltic
and the Mediterranean. lie then pur
chased the steamer Victoria. She is a
beautiful vessel of over 1,800 tons and
fitted up like tho most luxurious of pri
vate yachts. Her saloons are paneled
in different colored, marbles, and she is
lighted with electric lights. In fact
nothing "could exceed the beauty and
c-h-'unce of the Victoria's fittings. I n;i-
so ni.ch pleased with her when 1 went

A couple of Erin's sons were taking
their noonday rest on Court street Fri
day, and I heard one of them ask hi3
"How is it, Mike, that yez don't spend
the money that yez used t ?"
Mike ejected about a quart of tobacco
juice from between his lips and replied:
"Well, Denny, I'll tell yez. Ya sees,
I get me sixteen dollars ivery week, an 1
used to tell the old lady that I was only
gettin tin dollars. I usty put tin dollars
in wan pocket for the old lady an the
other six in me other pocket tor meseit,
d'y' see? Well, about three weeks ago,
sure, I forgot to separate the money, an
when 1 got home 1 handed the old lady
the whole sixteen dollars. A little whoile
after she sez t' me:
" 'How much did yez make this week,
" 'Tin dollars,' sez Oi.
" 'Th' six dollars,' sez 6he.
"An thin it kem t' me all in a minute,
an 1 sez: 'Oh, he must ha ined a mistake
an given me some wan else's money.
Give it here 't me an '11 tek it back t
him agin.' But the divil a penny would
tihe gimme, an the very next day she
kim down t' see th' boss. Of course she
found out that I was makin me sixteen
dollars a week, an now I have to give
her ivery cent."
And then the boss came along and or
dered them to go to work before Denny
had a chance to convey his sympathy.
Abbreviations in Letters.
Emerson said that "in a letter any ex
pressions may be abbreviated rather
than those of respect and kindness;
never .write 'Yours affly.' " But, be it
said with all respect, this smacks of ped
antry. The close of a letter is mere for
mula, and ia precisely that part which,
in writing to a friend, may without risk
of misunderstanding be cut short or dis
pensed with. But no haste or degree of
familiarity excuses careless expressions
in the letter itself. Written words stand
by themselves; the tone of the voice and
the glance of the eye. which often con
vey more than half the meaning, are not
there as footnotes; many and many an
unintentional sting has been planted by
a clumsy phrase or halting expression.
The same principle holds good in con
tersation. Blackwood's Magazine,.

Polly's Comuiaud to Her Father.
The following extract from "Madame
Knight's Journal," written in 1725,
shows that children were much the same
at that time as they are now:
Thursday, about 3 in the afternoon,
1 set forward with neighbor Polly, a
girl about eighteen years, who her fa
ther said he had been to fetch out of tho
Narragansetts, and said they had rode
thirty miles that day on a sorry lan
horse with only a Bagg under her for a
pillion, which the poor Girl often com

a very high wind, we mett with great

Horses cappered at a very Surprising
rate, and set us all in a fright, especially
poor Polly, who desired her father to
say "So Jack" to the horse to make him
But the careless parent, taking no
notice of her repeated desires, She Rored
out in a Passionate manner, "Pray, Suth,
father, Are you deaf? Say 'So Jack'
to the horse 1 tell you."
The Dutiful Parent obeyed saying
-So Jack, So Jack," as gravely a3 if he
had bin saying Chatchise after young
Miss, who with her fright look't all the
Colours of ye Rainbow.
Working for a Wife.
An infinite amount of trouble has a
youth of the Philippines ere he is allowed
to take a wife to his bosom. After the
parents on both sides have come to terms
the young gentleman has to work for his
intended father-in-law for a certain time,
very often for four years, and sometimes
longer. During this time he must mind
his p's and q's, for if he does anything
wrong he is instantly discarded. Very
frequently unscrupulous fathers make a
practice of dismissing their daughters7
young men on the merest pretense, thu3
enriching themselves by their gratuitous
labor. San Francisco Examiner.
What Makes II air Curly.
The difference between straight and
curly hair is very apparent on a micro
A hair is a hollow tube, and a straight
hair is as round as a reed, while a curly
hair is always flattened on both sides
and curls toward one of the flat sides,
never toward the edge. It is a curious
and little known fact that the hair of
women is coarser than that of men. as
well as thicker on the scalp. National
