Veteran Sailor Distinctly an Apostle
of the Doctrine of Simple and
. If there were two things which the
late Sir Henry Keppel, the veteran
admiral and personal friend of King
Edward, detested more than anything
else, they were doctoring and nurs
ing. He was once told that Mr. Glad
stone was ill.
"Ah," ho said, "he is over-nursed.
If he would do as I do climb up
eighty steps, have a cold bath every
day, and sleep with his windows al
ways open he would never be ill."
Sir Harry's temperament was not
fitted for unmitigated domesticity,
says Sir Algernon West in his "Me
moir" of the famous - admiral. After
one of his accidents, he tore off. the
bandages the doctor had put on him
and went away for a change and some
amusement. His over-anxious wife
in a day or two telegraphed to him:
"How are you, and where shall I
find you?" To her infinite amuse
ment, the answer came:
"Am quite welL You cannot find
On another occasion he met Mr.
Manley Sims', his doctor, who wanted
to know how he was. He did not
recognize him, and said:
"Quite well, and all the better for
not having seen that beast of a doctor
of mine for some time."
CREDENTIALS NOW IN ORDER
Dr. Cook the Last "Distinguished"
Guest to Be Entertained by Bu
enos Ayres Journal. -
In the course of his lecture on the
city of Buenos Ayres, Burton Holmes
showed several pictures of the edito
rial offices of the great Argentine
newspaper called La Frensa. In a
portion of the ornate structure that
house the journal's many activities
there is a complete flat, handsomely
furnished and fitted with every con
venience that Paris, which the Argen
tines copy faithfully, knows. This flat
used to be maintained by the news
paper as a place in which to enter
tain distinguished visitors to the city.
Mr. Holmes, in showing these pic
tures, declares he felt very bad at
first, when he learned about this hos
pitable custom of the paper, to think
that he was not considered enough
of a distinguished stranger to be in
vited to occupy the flat as a guest of
La Prensa. But when he looked over
the list of those who had occupied it
his wounds were assuaged. The first
of the guests was Puccini, the Italian
composer; the second was Amunsen,
the Arctic explorer, and the third was
Doctor Cook of Brooklyn, of North
Pole (?) and Denmark and the
guest of the New York board of al
dermen. "Since then," Holmes says
in conclusion, "La Prensa has hot en
tertained any distinguished visitors."
Opium Habit Among Japanese.
When the Japanese came into con
trol of Formosa they found the opium
habit widely prevalent, especially
with that portion of the population
that were of Chinese origin. The Jap
anese discovered that 64 per cent of
the male population were addicted to
the opium habit.
The greatest percentage of these
were among the educated classes. In
an endeavor to elucidate the point
as to the instigation of the habit, the
first step was traced In 93 per cent
of the cases to the use of the drug by
Public opinion was at first hostile
to the attempts of the Japanese In
eradicating the evil; but now, owing
to the judicious measures adopted, a
strong public sentiment has arisen
against the opium habit. Dietetic

Making the Best of Things.
There are several injudicious ways
of making the best of things. One of
them is Illustrated by the humble
young curate, pictured long ago in
Punch, who protested when the bishop,
his host, expressed doubts of an egg
the curate was eating. "Oh, no, my
Lord; I assure yon some parts of it
are excellent." Fancy looking on the
bright sight of a bad egg! The effort
was surely less Ingratiating than the
curate supposed. Indeed this habit
of seeing good in everything may be
come the most unendurable of virtues
as distressing as grim patience,
which is a common and effective meth
od of wearing, out the mind. I like
to remember the complacent 'old lady
who said, when a friend reminded her
that she had had little trouble in her
life. "Yes, but I've made the most of
what I have had." Atlanta Monthly.
Game Didn't Work.
To illustrate how well the late
"Ted" Marks was known in theatrical
circles beyond the metropolis, a drum
mer for a New York house told this
story: "A lot of boys were sitting
around in the lobby of a Kansas City
hotel one evening, when one young
fellow volunteered to take any one
who would go along to the theater. I
accepted the offer and we went to the
box office, where our 'fresh' friend
greeted the man inside with a hale
and merry 'How are you?" and a re
quest for two tickets. 'Marks,' said
br, 'you know, Teddy Marks it's all
right.' The man Inside gave the drum
mer another look, and said in a very
ool but determined manner: 'Noth
ing doing. Something'll happen to you
!f you don't move quick.' We did, and
he paid my way Into another show to
avoid meeting the crowd."

"Isn't it strange the Baileys should
?iave married each other!" mused Mrs.

interested in the Baileys' marital af

a comfortable "Uh-huh!" from behind

UNDER THE GRAND OLD FLAG

er day that last fall he made his first
trip into the woods. Mr. O'Malley told
about the pleasure he took in outfitting
for the trip that pleasure being added
to by the assumption of friendly rela
tions with the manager of a downtown
sporting goods store. "I had known
him by sight for a long time," said
Mr. O'Malley, "for I have a little office
immediately above the store he man
ages. But I had never gotten acquaint

In search of big game. When they
were finally ready to penetrate the for

an American flag lashed to the barrel
of his rifle.
"What are you carrying that flag
for?" asked Mr. O'Malley.

famous Missouri lawyer ef the earl;
days, to a man accused of unspeakab
crime, is historic. The . man asked
the lawyer to defend him and admitted
to him his guilt. "No," said Dean, "I
will not defend you. You ought to be
shot out of a redhot cannon, through
a barbed wire fence into hell."

The country dweller has a thousand
weather signs that the city man never
