: ComniutitiiiK upon President
Uou.sevell's avidity for redding
books, a writer in llie Century
Mniiinc 1ms the following to sav:
In the thick of the campaign of
inoi 1 happen to know that he re
read all of Mneaulay's "History of
Unhand," nil of Ixodes' "History
ol the United States" nud Dickens'
i lie otlier altcruoon lie was
handed n new book a not very
lone dissertation on a matter of
curtail inleiest. That evening he
entertained a number of guests at
dinner, and later there was a musi
cal party at the White House, nt
which he was present. At the lun
cheon, the next day, the giver said
to him: "Mr. President, of course
you have not had time to look at
that book." Oh, yes," said the
President, "I have read it."
Whereupon he proved that he had
done so by his criticism of the
work. One day, lately, a book of
short sloiics was sent to him; al
most by return mail came a letter
thanking the sender and saying he
ltad already enjoyed the stones
greatly in serial publication.
"How does he manage to do it?"
All I know about this is that, in
the first place, he has by nature or
practice the faculty of extremely
rapid reading. There arc some
men of letters and "general read
ers" who never have been able to
acquire this art. Others can take
in paragraphs or pages well-nigh at
a glance. The President must be
onoof these photographic readers,
who take almost instantly the im
pression of n whole paragraph or
nearly a whole page, the eye run
ning along the line with lightning
like rapidity, and leaping to the
more important phrases as by in
stinct. I have known the follow
ing to occur. A congressman makes
a statement to him and hands him
a typewritten paper. Almost im
mediately the President hands it
back to him; whereupon the con
gressman says deprecatingly: "Mr.
Roosevelt, may I not leave this
paper with you? I am anxious to
have you read it." "But," says
the President, "I have read it; you
can examine me in it if you wish."

l'rolmlile Origin of "Yankee Doo
dle." The following is a translation of
an article from the Frankfurter
In the publication of Ilchsenlantl
(No. 2, 1905), Johann Lewalter
gives expression to his opinion that
"Yankee Dootlle" was originally a
country dance of a district of the
former province of Kur-Hesse, call
ed the "Schwnlm."
It is well known that the tune
of "Yankee Doodle" was derived
from a military inarch played by
the Hessian troops during the Re
volution in America. In studying
the dances of the Schwnlm, Lcwal
ter was struck by the similarity in
form and rhythm of "Yankee Doo
dle" to the music of these dances.
Last year, at the "kirmess" of the
village of Wasenberg, when "Yan
kee Doodle" was phyed, the young
men and girls swung into a true
"Schwahner" dance, as though the
music had been composed for it.
During the wai of 1776 the chief
recruiting office for the enlistment
of the Hessian hired soldiers was
Ziegenhain, in Kur-IIcssc. It
therefore seems probable that the
Hessian recruits from the "Sch
waltn," who served in the pay of
Great Britain in America during
the Revolutionary wnr, and whose
military band instruments consisted
of bugles, drums and fifes only,
carried over with them the tune,
known to them from childhood,
and played it as a inarch. Walter

A Rur giant has made his
appearance ui London who is said
to be the tallest man in the world.
The giant was measured by n tail
or for n dress suit. It was lound
that he is 9 feet 8 inches in height,
463 pounds in weight and n four
shil'ing piece can be passed thtough
the ring that he wears on the small
fingtrofhis loft hand. The cir
cumference of his head is three
qunrtcrs of n ynrd and he wenrs a
collar of twenty-three inches. The
monster wears the largest boots in
the world. His feet are two
feet and one-half inches in size, nud,
in consequence, his boots measure
two feet three inches. Among the
giants whose records may be re
garded as authentic, the Russian's
claim to be the tallest, seems to be
justified. Some of the famous big
men of the past were John Middle
ton, 9 feet 3 inches, born in Iica
shirc in 1575; I'atric O'Brien, 8 ft.
7 inches, born in Kinsnlc, Ireland,
in 1761; and John Frederick, Duke
of Brunswick, 8 feet 6 inches.

When the night attendants nt
Bcllevuc Hospital went to work the
other night they saw, standing in
front of the morgnc, a fat young
man who held a yellow-haired doll
clasped tightly to his breast and
wlios left trouser leg was rolled up
to the knee, exposing a generous
cilf and six inches of a striped sock.
The young man rocked backward
and forward ns he stood, crooning
to the doll, bursting out every now
and then with "My child, my
child I" Dr. Armstrong thought
the man crazy. Not a word could
they get out of him. Armstrong
attempted to roll down his trouser
and the young man kicked at him
and mouthed unintelligibly. Arm
strong called Dr. Dandier from the
hospital, nud several assistants
came with Bandler. They were
about to overpower the man and
take him to the psychopathic ward
when half a dozen young fellows
rushed across the street and said:
"Here, let that boy alone. He's
not dafly. He is simply going
through his initiation into Nu Sig
ma Nu." Theu they doused the
young fellow with a bucket of cold
water and led him away, howling
