Some Good Stories Told About Noted Men and Women
Charles Stewart, a British lawyer,
lins lately published a volume of rem
iniscences, and In it tells two Btorlcs
about Tennyson, whom lie found self
conscious and acccsslblo to flattery.
"A little niece of mine," ho relates,
"was one day standing beside his
chair; he lifted her up and placed her
on his kneo for half a minute, and
then ho put her down, Baying: "Now
you can Bay you have sat on Tenny
son's knee.' "
On another occasion Tennyson was
Jewett'a guest at tho Master's Lodge,
llallol, with a few other men, and
after some good talk the poet had re
tired early to his room. Next morn
ing at breakfast Tennyson was In a
silent mood, but as the men wero ris
ing from the tablo he said: 'Jcwctt,
after I left you last night I wroto a
few verses; I am not sure that I liavo
ever dona anything better; I will lead
them to you." Jcwctt, preparing to
go off for bis day's work, replied, has
tily. "Oh, no thank you, Tennyson, I've
no time for that sort or thing Just
now; I am very busy."

The Female Martinet
She was one of those female marti
nets who rulo their homes with force
and decision, nnd who nro not going
to be galnsnld. It was In the train go
ing to tho northern part of Now York,
nnd tho woman was traveling with
two members of her family, an 18-ear-old
son nnd a daughter, about 12
years of age. The masterly tenden
cies of the woman could be seen In
her dlctatoilal manner with her son,
who was lalnly afraid of her. A
woman who snt In a seat behind her
had noticed this cnsually, and would
hnvo thought no more about the fnm
ily If the woman a little while before
tin- conductor passed through the
train had not turned around and con
fided to her:
'I have no ticket for this gl I of

"No?" queried the woman nd Ircss-
ed, a little surprised and' not knowing
exactly what to say.
'No, I nm not," said tho mother, the
corners or nor mourn lurncu eiown
with a decisive air.
Just then tho conductor was h'ard
approaching; down dropped tho 12-
carold upon the floor, was smother
ed under the wraps, tried to push her
self up again to breathe, but was
pushed down again, nnd when tho con
dm tor came he saw only tho wrnpB
and took two tickets without a word.
Meantime the 18-year-old son was
reading with a suspicious air of con
centration, nnd his ears, the woman
behind him noticed, were of a burn
ing, fiery rod.

He discovered In a minute that he
