ANGEL CHILD RUINED CAREER
How 8he Destroyed Reputation for,
Wit and Brilliancy of Two
Young Society Beaux.
Two young society bonux of Oeorgo-;
town during tlio pant season acquired
a most cnvlablo reputation for bril
liancy and wit. Their Impromptu re-j
Joinders flashed fortli with such spon-'
tnnelty that they were looked upon by
all their social coterie hh young men1
destined to shine as stars of the first'
magnitude In the galaxy of literary
"Why don't you two write for tho
magazines?" was tho constant query
o fthelr friends. i
Hut they haven't that reputation any'
more and all on account of an lnno-j
cont remark of llttlo 7-year-old Rlster
Mabel. And this Is how It happened.!
A party of a score of young peoplo!
wore Bitting on tho veranda of Hob's
house ono evening during the recont,
rainy spell, entertained to tho limit by;
the flashes that darted extempore
from the brains of tho two young gen-J
luscs. A thunder storm was blowing)
up, and the big black clouds of the,
vanguard were .sweeping eastward
across the sky. During a pause In tho
conversation Harry rast a glance Into.
"I wonder where those clouds are'
going," he asked languidly.
"Going to thunder!" Instantly re
plied Hob, and then the party roared.1
"Oh, brother Hob, you and Mr. Har
ry got that wrong," put In llttlo Mabel
after tho laughter had subsided, "i'
heard you all say this afternoon that
you wero to ask whore the clouds
were going and Mr. Harry was to say
they were going to thunder!"
And then tho party roared again '
but for a different reason.
FOUND ALL THE SYMPTOMS
"Boss" Clar, New York Journalist,
Knew He Had Appendicitis,
Though Doctors Denied It.
"Hobs" Clark, who has been city
editor of tho New York Sun for moro
years than he likes to say, nccordlng
to the Popular Magazine, arrived at
his ofllco one afternoon, took off his
coat, sat down nt tho desk, groaned
aloud throe times, nnd complained of
a severe pain In his side. "1 think l
have appendicitis," he remarked, "and
I am going to find out about It pretty
soon." A fow minutes later one of
tho reporters found him In tho office1
library studying a medical book. The
boss slammed the book shut, looked
up at the reporter, and said In a tone
of finality: "I have got It. I find that
I have every symptom set out in this
chapter." Ho went homo and called
a doctor, who examined him and told
him that there was nothing the mat
ter with him. Two hours later the
boss telephoned for his brother, who
is a clergyman, to come over from
Hrooklyn to see him. Then he wont
to bed. When his brother arrived,
the boss said: "I know you are a
preacher, but this Is where you go to
a rum shop. I read In tho medical
book at the office tha champagne Is
good for appendicitis. I am suffering
tortures with appendlcttua, and I want
a quart of champagne. Go get It."
And he clerical brother went and got
It. The boaa drank It all, but It did
him no good. Before sunrise the next
morning, he telephoned to a hospital
for the ambulance, and he had himself
taken to the operating room, where
ha persuaded the physician that he
had appendicitis. He wu right, and
the operation saved his life.
