1 Weight by Fish Scales.
When Senator Matthew S. Quay
of Pennsylvania was down in Maine
in June 011 a fishing expedition, he
had Charles Anance, a half-breed ,
Indian, for a guide. During his
stay a politician from Boston caught
a togue, or "laker" trout, from
Moosehead lake, which weighed
thirty-two pounds, thus breaking
1 all previous records. As soon as
the Senator heard ol the big fish he
I offered his guide a large sum of
money if he could find a togue that
would equal or excel that taken by
the Massachusetts man.
"Pennsylvania is a bigger state
than Massachusetts," said the Sen
ator, "and if a Boston ward politi
cian can take a 'laker' weighing
thirty-two pounds, a Pennsylvania
Senator ought to be able to pull in
a fifty-pounder, at least."
Anance replied with his inimita
ble "Oui monsieur," and applied
himself to the task with diligence.
Both men went out early and
angled late for three days without
securing a fish above ten pounds.
After this they took two canoes, the
Senator occupying one and the
guide the other. When they met
at sundown to paddle back to the
hotel the Senator was disgusted
with his luck, aud asked the guide
how he had fared.
"Ver good," replied Anance,

Europe's Richest Duke.
The Grand Duke of Luxemburg
celebrated his eighty-sixth birthday
recently. The Grand Duke Adol
phus filled the throne of Nassau
for many years prior to 1866, when
his dominions were seized by Prus
sia, but he retained his vast private
fortune and the immense family es
tates, and he has always been one
of the richest royal personages in
Europe. The Grand Duke's first
wife was the daughter of the Grand
Duke Michael Paulovitch, younger
brother of Emperor Nicholas I, but
she died a year after her marriage
and is buried in the magnificent
Greek chapel on the Neroberg, be
hind Wiesbaden. The present
Grand Duchess is a princess of the
Anhalt-Dessau family and a niece
of the late Queen Louise of Den
mark. The Grand Duke divides
the year between his seat in Lux
emburg, his chateau on the Taunus
hills, his huntingdomain in Bavaria
and Abbazia. His only son has a
family of several daughters, and his
only daughter, who has no children,
is the hereditary Grand Duchess of I rangements which had been made
(lorernor as Hoothlack. I
Governor Washburn was a thor-1
ough gentleman through and '
through, courteous, well bred and
with an entirely sufficient sense of
his own dignity, says Senator Hoar
in September Scribner's. But he
had little respect for any false no-'
tions of gentility, and had a habit
of going straight at any difficulty
himself. To this habit he owed
much of his success in life. A very
amusing story was told by Mrs.
Washburn long after her husband's
death. She was one of the bright
est and sprightliest and wittiest of
women. Her husband owed to her
much of his success in life, as well
as much of his comfort and domes-1
tic enjoyment. She used to give
sometimes half a dozen entertain
ments in the same week. She was
never disconcerted by any want of
preparation or suddenness of de
mand upon her hospitality. One
day some quite distinguished guests
arrived in Worcester unexpectedly,
whom it was proper that she should
keep to dinner. The simple ar-
