A Familiar Figure Is Gone
The death of Jules Merle Sun
day morning March Gth 910 re
moves a familiar figure from our
streets where his quaint greetings
have been heard for the past few
years Since early in January he
has been ailing but the seriousness
of his condition was known to few
hence his demise was a surprise to

France on July 1G 1831 and came
to this country about sixty years ago
He received a liberal education and
had traveled Extensively over the
world had a retentive memory and
had been a great reader before his

many years and was a most interest
ing conversationalist He was mar
ried to Mrs Emma J Bartholo
mew Evans in Oconto Wisconsin

His Perfect English
Did you ever notice anything pe
culiar In Professor Ws speech In
quired a friend of the professors
Why no I dont think 1 did
Well he would never be guilty of
saying what you said just now
He wouldnt What did I say
You said l dont think I did
Is there anything out of the way
about that
Yes You didnt say what you
meant at all You didnt mean that
you didnt think but that you thought
you didut Professor W is so careful
tuat ue says exactly wuat ue means
and nothing else You do not mean
that you do not think when you say
that hut that you do think that such
and such Is not Nearly everybody
does that so It sounds queer when
people speak as the professor does and
say I think I dont instead of l dont
think 1 do as the average Individual
would say Another of the professors
idiosyncrasies is to say Til not where
you or I would say I wont All those
little ways sound queer but theyre ab
solutely correct and irreproachable
The professor uses more perfect Eng
lish than any one else I know New

Bribery In English Elections
Bribery is a term which every candi
date for a seat iu the imperial assem
bly dreads for the law visits offend
ers against it with very heavy punish
ment and more than one politician has
realized that the game is not worth
the candle
The would be M P must be very
careful not to give lend or promise
money or moneys worth to Induce
an elector to vote for him or abstain
from voting for an opponent Neither
must lie pay the days wages of any
voter or give him money for railway
fares or loss of time If he does and
is elected the candidate loses his scat
and both he and the recipient of his
ill advised gift are liable to twelve
months imprisonment or a fine not ex
ceeding 200 Even treating the wives
or relatives of electors may constitute
an offense and the quantity is Imma
terial if the intention is corrupt
The withdrawal of custom from a
tradesman if done with a view to af
fecting the mans vote constitutes un
due influence for which the punish
ment is the same as in the case of
bribery Pearsons Weekly
The Australian Stock Whip
The stock whip in the skillful hands
of the Australian is not only an article
of the greatest utility but also a for
midable weapon Owing to its great
length the lash varies from twelve to
thirty feet aud the shortness of the
butt which measures only eighteen
inches it is an -extremely difficult and
awkward thing to wield and the be
ginner is apt to hurt himself if he does
nor exercise care when practicing A
well trained stockman however can
hit a cent every time at ten paces dis
tance and with the dreaded lash in his
hand cracking like pistol shots can
keep a mob of wild cattle in check If
used with full force it will cut through
skin and tlesh like a knife says the
Wide World Magazine but unless a
beast shows distinct vice the stockman
uses it more for the purpose of instill-
ing fear than of causing pain It can
also be used as a bolas a Patagonian
form of the lasso and an adept can
catch and hold a beast by causing the
lash to curl around its legs
Luck of Peacock Feathers
The peacocks feathers superstition
is nothing like so common as it used
to be Perhaps Whistlers celebrated
peacock room helped to break it down
At any rate peacocks feathers are or
dinary enough articles of decoration in
many happy and placid homes There
are shops in London that keep large
stocks of them and you may buy these
bringers of misfortune at a shilling a
bundle Did the superstition originate
because of the reported pride of the
peacock on the pride shall have a
fall theory or is it that the eye
of the feather is supposed to see un
desirable happenings which somehow
get published upon the housetops One
rather feels that the beautiful tail was
natures compensation to the bird for
giving it the most abominable of all

any checks signed by you He begs to be
remembered to you as also do I and you

When John Brown Wouldnt
Pol Manear Is a favorite cast near
Balmoral castle and was nlwajs held
as tlie special preserve of John Brown
who was the personal attendant of the
late Queen Victoria John was an en
thusiastic and Inveterate fisher and
often the royal larder was indebted to
his prowess for Its supplies of spring
salmon when the rods of the other fish
ermen failed to bring them to the bank
It is authentically reported among an
glers on Deeside that when the queen
wanted John he was Immediately at
her call except when angling and at
such times she would not disturb him
The tacit understanding between them
is said to have arisen in the following
fashion Her majesty one day sent an
imperative message to the riverside
desiring John to Immediately wait
upon her
Tell her majesty replied John In
his usual Doric that I am rinniu a
salmon and I canna come
The messenger came back to him in
hot haste saying that the queen de
sired to see him the very minute
Well tell her majesty this time that
1 am riiiniii ti salmon and I winna
come And that settled It
Albatross and Magpie
Birds play a great part in good and
bad auguries at sea The albatross is
regarded as a harbinger of good for
tune and has been immortalized as
such by Coleridge in
the Ancient Mariner
The Rime of
whereas the
magpie is a bad omen
A friend of Sir Walter Scott travel
ing by coach to London entered Into
a conversation with a respectable
looking seaman who remarked I
wish we may have luck in our journey
Theres a magpie
And why should that be unlucky
I cant tell you that but all the
world agrees oue magpie bodes ill luck
two are not so bad but three are the
evil one himself I never saw three
magpies but twice and once I nearly
lost my vessel and afterward I fell
from my horse and was hurt
Many seamen still believe in water
spirits or sprites In Bohemia the fish
ermen are afraid to assist a drowning
man for fear of giving offense to the
water sprite
Berlhollet and Robespierre
It is said that the celebrated savant
Barthollet in the most dangerous times
of the republic sustained his fearless
love of truth Some days prior to the
ninth Thermldor a sandy deposit was
found in a barrel of brandy intended
for the army The contractors sus
pected of poisoning were immediately
arrested and the scaffold was already
prepared Berthollet however exam
ined the brandy and reported it free
from all adulteration
You dare maintain said Robes
pierre to him that that brandy does
not contain poison
As his reply Berthollet drank off a
glass saying I never drank so much
You have plenty of courage ex
claimed Robespierre
I had more when I signed my re
port replied the chemist and here
the matter terminated
Fiddling and Skating
The celebrated violinist Joachim I
during a winter residence in northern
Germany was in the habit of watch
ing the skaters on a fine piece of water
beneath his windows until one day it
occurred to him to try the exercise
himself As he had never yet donned
a pair of skates he put himself into the
hands of a man who provided skates
and instruction in the art on the brink
of the water and was soon equipped
and started on the ice the master lead
ing his pupil
Finding no difficulty in keeping his
balance under these circumstances
Joachim felt sure he could go alone
desired his leader to leave him and
the next minute was sprawling on the
ice on his back
Aha said the teacher triumphant
ly as he raised his prostrate pupil
You see it is not quite so easy as play
ing a fiddle
The Bridal Wreath
The bridal wreath is usually formed
of myrtle branches in Germany It is
made of orange blossoms In France as
well as in the United States In Italy
and the French cantons of Switzerland
it is of white roses In Spain the flow
ers of which it is composed are red
roses and pinks In the islands of
Greece vine leaves serve the purpose
and in Bohemia rosemary is employed
In German Switzerland a crown of
artificial flowers takes the place of the
Not the Usual Kind
What a fool exercise fencing must
be for women

Thousands of them would follow him
into the jaws of death
