The respite given by:,Mr. Abingdon's

business In order to catch a fast train

Antique Definition of a "hady" find
Modern Definition of a
There is an ancient British anecdote,
still- In perfectly good standing, whloh
gives a definition of a "lady." This
states that the. mistress of a house on
returning from an afternoon's shopping
was Informed by her housemaid: "A lady
was here to see you, mum." Asked the
mistress: "How do you know It was a
la'dy:'V Said the"" housemaid: "Because
she was covered with Joolry and smelt
of -sherry somelhln' awful, mum."
A New Yorker who goes to Canada an
nually on business recalled the anecdoto
the other day In telling of a Canadian
definition of a "gentleman" which Jip
received some years ago. '
"I was at a dance In Ottawa," he said
"the year before the Boer. war. One of
my partners was a snip of a miss who
had virulent Anglomania. The talk ran
upon class distinction, and she voiced
tome blxarre opinions as to the gulf be
tween '.gentlemen' and all other men.
