Josef Hofman, the child pianist, has
failed to keep the promise of his mar

his fingers seem to lose the magic sup

his once absorbing taste for music
seems to be deserting him.

Beards were at various times taxed in

paid 'i shillings and 4 pence for wear

lie Knew tlie J'roper Way to Kilt, WbU
His laliicr iil Not.
They came into the restaurant, a
man and a boy, says the Detroit J'Vre
'. v.v. The former wore the. air of a
business man out for his noonday
lunch, and as it was Saturday it was
easy to guess the boy was taking half
his'holiuay helping in the oflice. The
man sat with a preoccupied air while
waiting to be served, and answered
the boy's questions in an absent-minded
way, which showed that he had not
thrown business cares oil. The boy
chatted about this, snickered about
that, fumbled his knife and fork until
he dropped them, and eyed every
waiter who passed with a quizzical
stare at the contents of his tray. And
the manner of their eating was as dif
ferent as tke manner of their waiting.
The man hustled his food down his
throat as if he neither enjoyed it at
the time nor expected to later.
The boy took time to arrange his
side dishes to his own notion, those he
liked best nearest to hand, and then
went to work leisurely to take a sip of
this, a taste of that, or to season an
other to suit. He may have taken
large mouthfuls boys will but he
toolc plenty of time to talk between
bites boys will also do ' that. The
father filled his mouth and washed the
food down with scalding hot coffee.
The boy got his coffee sugared and
creamed just to suit him. and then let
it stand and cool off while he was eat
ing. The father finished with lemon
custard pie, and gave his mouth a
swipe with the napkin in precisely
nine and three-quarter minutes from
the time he broke ground on his cold
roast beef, while the boy had only just
laid aside his soup-spoon and was
working along toward the best parts
of his chicken potpie.
"Can't wait for you, Fred," said the
father impatiently, after noticing the
progress of the boy and looking at his
watch; "I'll go on to the postoflice and
stop in as I come back," and he went
to pile a fresh load of responsibility on
his mind while his 6tomach was groan
ing under a load of badly chosen food,
hastily bolted under unfavorable con
ditions. When he came in five min
utes later the boy sat with his knife
and fork on a standstill between apple
roll and rice pudding, and kept the
impatient man of business waiting
two whole minutes longer while he
finished it and drank his coffee.
"Pretty good lunch, papa," he said
."Stuff and rubbish!" growled the
man. "AlwaA'S sets like lead. Afraid
he won't be the man for business his
father is, doctor," to a friend sitting at
a table near by.
"There's where Mr. Blank is wrong,"
remarked the doctor to his companion
after the others had gone out of hear
ing, "and the boy is right. If he keeps
on eating in that way he'll be an act
ive, clear-headed business man ten
years longer than his father will ever
wear, with his boa-constrictor style oi
eating. No; the boy is right.

Wednesday afternoon, says the N. Y.
Sun, and stalked up to the counter,
behind which several clerks were
standing. The man slapped his hand
imperatively on the counter. "I want
a quarter 'v' a million," he cried, "and
I want it quick." The clerks turned
pale and stared at the stranger. A
porter slid quietly to the door to get
a policeman. The well-dressed but
excited stranger stared at the clerks
in astonishment. "What the dickens
is the matter with you fellows, any
how?" he cried. "Can't I get a quar
ter 'v' a million without all of you hav
ing fits?" "Pray, sir, don't get ex
cited." said a clerk, patting the man
on the arm. "The porter has just
gone after it. Wo can't get so much
money in a second, you know." "The
stranger looked thoughtful a moment,
then laughed, and the lailgh gave the
clerks another unpleasant shock. "Ha,

ered their self-possession. "I beg
