Didn'l Wait For the "Thank You."
John Bull, the scene pninter, tells a
story of an occasion when he delivered
some scenery for an entertainment in
a lunatic asylum. lie was watching
Ids men getting the stuff In when it
began to rain. A big man with a
pleasant smile appeared nnd offered to
help. They got on famously. Mr. Bull
nnd his volunteer were Just setting
down the last load when nn attendant
arrived, caught the big ninn n tre
mendous blow on the side of the bend

Mr. Bull wns speechless with Indigna

tip, smiling more than ever, nnd walk
ed nwny. "You enn thank your stars
I've been wntching you," the attend
ant explained. "I suppose when you
hnd the last lot in you'd have said,
'Thank you; I'm much obliged.' Well,
that's this fellow's trouble, sir. The
moment you say 'Thank you' to 'Ira

Placing the Goat.
An anecdote of President Hayes is
told by nn Englishman who formed
one of n party of his compatriots while
the president and his family were at
Clark's ranch, near Yosemite. The two
parties were nssembled in the rude
kitchen awaiting the coming meal. A
certain stiffness prevailed nt first At
last a master of the ceremonies nnd
introducer appeared in the shape of a
small and elegant quadruped, evident
ly a family pet, which trotted into the
kitchen to be caressed. A lady of the
English party gently stroked its stem,
the president its stern. Presently they
met, about the center of the animal,
nnd the interchange of n few remarks
became inevitable. "This is a very
pretty goat," from the English lady.
"My end is nntelope, mndnm," from
the president. It need scarcely be said
thnt both ends were antelope, but the
reply wns very neat.
The Brave Butterfly.
Ilero is nn unorthodox story of King
Solomon: One dny a butterfly sat on
the king's temple nnd boasted to his
wife. "If I chose I could lift my wing
nnd shiver this building to tho ground,"
ho swaggered. Solomon, overhearing,
sent for the boaster. "How dare you?"
he thundered. The butterfly groveled.
"I did It to impress my wife," he
pleaded. The great monarch was in
stantly appeased and let him go.
"What did Solomon say to you?" gasp
ed a quivering wife five minutes later.
"Oh, he begged mo not to do It," said
the butterfly airily. And Solomon,
again overhearing, smiled.

Seville' Tower of G i ra Ida.
From Its great antiquity alone If
from nothing else It Is plain that th
Giruldn at Seville could not hnve been
studied front the tower of the Mndison
Square (inrden in New York, which
the American will recall when he sees
:t. if the case must be reversed nnd
wo must allow thnt tho Madison
Square tower wns studied from the
GIrakla. we must still recognize that
It is no HcrvNe copy, but in Its frank
Imitation has a grace nnd beauty
which achieve originality. Still, the
Glralda is always the Glralda, nnd.
though there had been no Saint Gatt
dens to tip It summit with such a fly
ing footed nymph as poises on our
tower, the figure of Faith which
crowns It is nt least n good weather
vane and from Its oflice of turning gives
the mighty bell tower Its name. Ing
centuries before the tower was n bel
fry it served the mosque, which the
cathedral now replaces, as it minaret
for the muezzin to call the falthrul to
prayer, but It was then only two thirds
as high. Harper's Magazine.

000 of people, and they bnnst of
perhaps the best culture In India nt
the present time. The language ns n
written language Is only fifty years
old. Though for over n thousand
yenrs It has been n dialect, there Is in
Indian history unfortunately no trace
of Bengali having been nn Important
literary tongue. The language orig
inates front Sanskrit, the mother
tongue from which every other Indian
language lias borrowed its alphabet,
grammar and vocabulary; but. unlike
the others. Bengali never shrinks
front gathering new materials. There
are numerous Persian. French. Ara
bic and English words incorporated in
it, nnd the wonder of It Is that. In
stend of having been degraded Into
some vulgar form like pidgin English,
Bengali hns become the most literary,
svlcntific nnd perhaps the most philo
sophic of modern Indian lnngunges.

In tho tower there is nn enormous

to wind it every day, a very tiring Job,
as the weights are naturally extremely
Tho sexton, however, ia a very

regarding the heaviness of the clock

Emily Bronte' Look.
A discussion as to the personal ap
pearance of Emily Bronte reveals the
remarkable fact that no one knows
anything about it since there is no au
thentic portrait in existence. When
Charlotte Bronte first saw George
Henry Lewes she said that he was
wonderfully like her sister Emily, but
this is unfortunate for Emily since
Lewes wns very much like a baboon.
Possibly the comparison was due to a
sisterly candor that so seldom errs on
the side of mercy. Thanks to photog
raphy, the historian of the future will
not be in doubt as to the appearance
of celebrities of the present generation.

When did tho word "suburb" first
find its way 1to the language? It is
used in a recently discovered four
teenth ordinance of the city guild of
carpenters providing that the mem
bers should attend the funeral of any
oue of the fraternity resident within
the city "or in the subburbs." The
natural inference is that even then it
was part of the everyday talk of the
citizens. Pall Mull Gazette.
