PLAYING CARDS.
Peouliarities of Those Used by the
Different Nations.
"One of the most interesting collec
tions of foreign loot that I've seen
recently," said a man ordinarily too
busy to make the trip over the seas
himself, "is an assortment of playing
cards from various parts of She world.
"In every country the owner of the
collection visited-and he went to a
good many-picked up cards of local
manufacture and so represen.tative r1
the nation.
"The Russian cards are perhaps the
most elaborate. The faces of the kings
and queens are different in each suit,
indicating the racial elements that go
to compose the empire.
"On the Greek cards clrssicul heroes
-(and heroines are represented. Nestor,
for example, Is the king of hearts and
Or*-stes the knave. Agamemunon is the
king of clubs, Hercules the jack of
splades and Minos and Danae the king
and queen of diamonids.-' 'The Greek
l)ack is rather a clhqi one and scarce

"Cadiz is -a ce ter for card maunufac

robes are of unusual magnificence.

there aire disks and dice cups. Th<
cards in some of the Spanish packs art
very thin and have a capital spring.
"The Madeira cards come from Lis

ace cards are adorned with typica
P'ortuguese scenes.
"A peculiarity of the palck bought ir
Constantinople is that the ace cards

-three-quarters in size, which can be
bioughit on the streets of Naples for
soldo. These resemble the Spanisi
S curds to some extent, although thn
royalties are more dignified.

His Perseverance.
Henry Arthur Jones, the noted Eng
lish playwright, was giving the stu
dents of Yale an address on the drama.
"Your American vernacular Is pictur
esque," he said, "and it should help
your playwrights to build strong, racy
plays. But neither vernacular nor any
thing else is of moment if persever
ance Is lacking. No playwright can
succeed who is like a man I know. I
said to this man one New Year's (lay,
'D'o you keep a diary, Philip?' 'Yes,'
he answered. 'I've kept one for the
first two weeks in January for the
last seven years.' "
H is Good News.
"I have," said a lawyer as lhe entered
his condlemnedI client's cell, "good news
at last."
"A reprieve ?" eagerly exclaimed the
prisoner.
"No, not a reprieve, but your uncle
has left you ?500, and now you can
meet your fate with the satisfying
feeling that the noble efforts of your
lawyer in your behalf will not-go unre
warded."-London Tfit-Bits.

grew enrnations three to four inches
across, as large as any that we see.

"All through Spain, southern France

there are fewv glass houses, for In pro

July.
"'T.he big earnations, however, were
not grown in SpaIn or Italy, but in
E0ngland outdoors during the summer
time and before glass houses were
known. They may have grown just
Ias large carnation flowers in Spain as
in England a~t that time, but in Eng
land there was record made of the
fact and also of the size, while in Spall
there was not. Shakespeare mentions
carnations and gillyllowers, or July
flowers, together as blquning at the
same season, which sh w\s th at the
carnation was then a summer flower,
whereas in our greenhouses it is now
a wilnter bloomer. Ilow the florIsts of
those days treated the plants to ot'

for old time florists grow flowers in
