Scrivner is a man of great energy
and dispatch, whose hours are so filled
with activities that he has formed a
habit of quick and a sometimes inju
dicious speed, isot for many years
has he had time to think twice before
speaking, and however generous his
impulses and correct his life, he does
now and then fume and splurge into
vexatious predicaments. It was just
in this fashion and meaning no harm
at all that he encountered a situation
last week that well nigh undid him for
a time.
Scrivner rushed into a telephone
booth at the Fifth Avenue Hotel and
gave the number of a friend's tele
phone up town. It was a matter of
business as well as friendship, and
Scrivner had only ten minues before
he must rush away to an appointment
HI Fojctx=aecond street. The conxrsa
tion at his end of the wire went like
this:
"Hello, Bill. That you?" he said in
his loud and tumbling speech. "That's
good. You see, I told youHello! Hel
lo, Bill! That you, Bill? Somebody cut
in on us. I was saying thatHello!
What the Who's this, anyhow?
No, I'm not Robert, and I don't want
you. Get off the wire, will you? Say,
operator!"
Scrivner opened the door of the
booth, leaned out and called to the
girl to take that fellow off his wire.
Them he went at it again, but found
A social philosopher has discovered
that an act very commonly regarded as
an effectation of gentility, as found in
the manner of holding a drinking glass
when drinking from it, is not an af
fectation at all, but really an uncon
scious, automatic act
This supposed affectation consists, in
extending the third and fourth fingers
of the hand clear of the glass when it
is lifted and tipped forward with its
brim to the lips and while the glass
is held there in the act of drinking.
No doubt it would commonly be con
sidered tb?t people do this for the
sake of greater elegance, or at least
from an instinctive desire to give to
the hand such an appearance, which it
would not possess if they closed the
entire hand around the glassif they
clutched it, so to speak, a manner of
holding that would seem to savor of
rudeness.
But this observer says that really
people hold those two fingers clear of
the glass in drinking because that is
the way that is most convenient. If,
Tie says, a person should grasp the
glass with the whole hand closed snug
ly around It he would find that the
act of tipping the glass so held re-
A number of years ago the Hon.
Thomas B. Reed told one of his early
law cases.
A neighbor's boy was arrested for
stealing a tray of gold watches, and in
court pleaded not guilty. The only
witness for the prosecution was the
jeweler who lost the watches. His
story was that on the afternoon on
which the watches were stolen he was
fixing up his show window and had
removed from it the goods, the tray
of watches among them, to the coun
ter near the door. While doing this
and dusting out the window, he testi
fied, the boy stood on the sidewalk
watching him through the window. As
it was dusk, he went into a rear room
for a match, and when he came back
the boy and about a dozen gold
watches were gone. He jumped
through the open door, but could see
no one on the street.
Prof. R. D. George of the University
of Colorado suggests that the ancient
Egyptians drew the larger part of their
gold from the old wbrkings near Cop
tos, latitude 26 degrees north, and
from the mountains some distance to
the south. The mountains to the south
of Coptos are probably the mines for
which the kings of the twelfth dynasty
sacrificed the lives or many thousand
men for the rule of Egyptian kings
who wanted gold was to invade Nubia
and take possession of the mines, just
as when they wanted copper they
drove back the nomadic tribes of Si
nai and built fortresses to protect their
miners. The Nubian gold workings of
which Prof. George speaks are placed
in an almost inaccessible mountain
group surrounded on all sides by a
waterless desert. Here may be seen
tunnels and shafts penetrating the
mountains to almost unknown depths.
In the decade of 1840-50 Col. W. A.
Bryant was a young attorney in Barre,
Mass., and also editor of the Barre
Gazette and an ardent Democrat, the

In the campaign of the fall of 1841
Col. Bryant was to make an address
in Hubbardston and drove over dur
ing the afternoon, the distance being
about eight miles. In the course of
his tirade against the Whigs he said:
"Their case is lost, and they will get
lost themselves if they stay out after
dark."
After a rousing meeting he started
^home, and as it was dark, with no
moon and the sky cloudy he got off
lithe road. Noticing a light in a farm
house, he stopped and knocked at the
door. The farmer came to the door

the other man making as much fuss as
he was. For one brief, trying mo
ment, Scrivner tried persuasion.
"Say, old man," he said, "I'm in an
awful rush. Won't you"
"So am I," was the snappy reply.
"Whose wire is thus, anyhow?"
"It's mine, you I tell you
it's mine. You've no right to"
"O, shut up that trap, and get out,"
sang out the voice
much.

That was incendiary, and Scrivner

man. My name's Kid McCoy, and I

Silence fell in Scrivner's booth. He
dropped the receiver, leaned back in
his chair, and gasped for breath. He
sat a full minute there in a sort of
trance, then opened the door and
walked out, dazed and perspiring. A
page overtook him at the door ot the
writing room.

quired more muscular effort, for the
muscles extending from all the fingers
would then be called into use. Where
as if the person drinking holds the
glass between the thumb and the first
two fingers he not only relieves the
tension on the muscles of the two
other fingers, but also in a way he
pivots the glass and makes it easier
to tip on that account. Thus the sep
aration of the two fingers from the
glass is a perfectly natural act.
This philosopher concedes that the
act may be exaggerated that fingers
thus extended might even be seen
raised and extended more than was
really comfortable for the better dis
play of rings adorning them, and he
concedes that sometimes when we see
our fingers thus raised as we lilt our
glass, in clear view of all, we may
seelc to crook the fingers in attitudes
of curves of greater grace and so he
concedes that in some cases the rais
ing of the fingers in lifting the glass
may show affectation in some meas
ure, but his point is that in its original
inception and in the practice by the
many the elevation of these two fin
gers is not an affectation, but an act
quite unconscious and automatic.
The boy took the witness stand, and
testified that on the day of the theft
he and some other boys went to Cape
Elizabeth about 1 o'clock and did not
return until about 9 o'clock that night.
His testimony was corroborated by
the other boys and by his father.
Mr. Reed said he had made many
arguments in court, but believed he
had never beaten the one he made
then, tor he believed the innocence
of the boy, and put his whole soul into
it. The prosecuting officer made no
argument, and the judge discharged
the boy, who at once left the room.
Mr. Reed soon went out, and the
boy met him and said: "You did well,
Tom, but I can't pay you until I can
get up to Boston and sell them
watches, when I will see you."
"In about a week," said Mr. Reed,
"he came into my office and laid a new,
crisp $50 bill on my desk, and went
out without saying a word."

WAS CUT OUT FOR FINANCIER.
Young Man's Early Proof of Posses
sion of Requisite Qualities.
Some years ago, when the West was
wilder than it is to-day, a young man,
since grown rich and now famous as
a financier and capitalist, was a regu
lar boarder at a hotel in a frontier
town. He and a number of his
friends were wont to resort every
evening to the smoking room of the
hotel, which they used as a sort of
club, and their wants were attended to
by a fair waitress who may be called
Miss White.
She was a nice, quiet girl, and at
tended to the wants of her patrons
with regularity and promptitude.
One evening after she had retired
for the night the landlord informed
the company that this was the last
time she would wait upon them, as she
was going to be married next day.
When the landlord had gone out Jim
mie Hughes, the young man referred
to, got up and said he thought it only
right that they should show their ap
preciation of her services by making
her a little present on this auspicious
occasion.
He took a sheet of paper, and
wrote his name down for $200 and
passed it' around. The girl was popu
lar and the idea caught on, and when
it came round again to generous Jim
"mie -the- total amounted to something
over $2,000. They summoned the land
lord, handed over the amount to him
and asked him to give it to Miss
White next morning with their hearty
good wishes for her happiness.
Next day she was married, and the
happy bridegroom wasJimmie

on milady's back.
The X-ray silk waist, which was one
of the extreme peek-a-boo brand, was
intended to be buttoned at the back.
