"MANLY ART" IN FRANCE,

Boxing has become outte the rage
In Paris: the old savate, with its ef
fective high kicking, has been dis
carded for tbe "noble art" of Britain.
But our lively neighbor 'hj Gaul has
always had a sneaking affection for a
manly bout of fisticuffs a l'Anglals.

If fish is the greatest brain food,

Is in a fair way to outstrip tbe rest of

there were brought to T wharf
the greatest flsh mart or the coun
try more than two million pounds of
flsh. Including large and small cod.
haddock, hake, pollock, halibut and
various other species 'iof the deep.
This enormous catch has been brought
by 100 schooners, round numbers, 65
of which arrived on one day and the
remainder the day following.

ers average 20 men to the vessel

and the average sum coming to each
fisherman, outside or the captain, is
about 120, representing from five days
to between two and hree weeks at
sea. Of course, the rums vary, accord
ing to the vessel-, the catch and tbe
time spent at "sea. Some schooner
brought in as high as 75.000 pounds
and some little more than 5.000; some
had five men In the crew and some 25;
some caught plenty of large cod and
some very few. Boston Transcript.

Charity's Biggest Achievement.
The highest achievement or char
ity is to love our enemies; but to
bear cheerfully with our neighbor's
fallings is scarcely an Inferior grace.
It is easy enough to lovo those who
are agreeable and obliging; but to
love one who Is cross, perverse,, tire
some. Is as unpleasant a process as
shewing pills. Nevertheless, this, the
best way of practising it, is to put our
selves In tbe place or him who tries
us, and to Bee how we would wish
him to trest us ir we had his defects.
We must put ourselves in the place of
buyer when we sell, and seller wben
we buy, if we want to deal fairly.
MR. RILEY DID NOT KNOW.
Woman Reporter Asked Question Hard
A friend of James Whltcomb Riley
tells a story of an encounter the bach
elor poet once had with a woman re
porter. Tbe energetic young woman
after strenuous effort had finally
caught Mr. Riley at tbe telephone.
This is the conversation that fol
lowed: "I this Mr. Riley?"
"Yes. That Is Miss?"
"Miss Jones, of the Courier-Journal.
I've been trying all day to get an in
terview with you, Mr. Riley."
'Ah, would it were a view Instead
of an Interview," said the poet, gal
lantly. 'Oh, thanks. How long will you
remain in Louisville, Mr. Riley?"
"Only a short time."
"Is your wife with you?"
"No, ma'am, she is not."
"Where Is she, may I ask?"
"You may ask, my dear Miss Jones,
but I find It very difficult to answer.
I am In absolute Ignorance of her
whereabouts. For aught I know :o the
contrary, she may right now be at the
other end of this telephone!"
There was much laughter, and after
ward an effort to resume the Inter
view. But in vain. Mr. Riley had es

Mr. Roll milled and resumed:

The athlete took the bet. and made
the trial. But there were 41 steps to

20 hops the man found that he had
lost. He paid rp. but accused CapL
Bragge of sharp practice.
.'"Sharp practice!' said Bragge, in

"The other, expert ibg to win his

and won tbe bet."
