That was about eighteen years ago.
I had a hunch then-and 1 was only
eighteen years old at that time-that
this land would some day jump in
value by leaps and bounds. When I
was twenty years old I came into a
bunch of $15,000. I went to my guar
dian, an old man, pretty prominent
in estate management and wisdom at
that time, and I told him I wanted to
soak the whole $15,000 in this block

block was then on the market for
exactly $15,000. The old gentleman

a patronizing smile. 'You don't know

you from such wild notions as this

down on me. Then he went and in

"Three years ago the man who

other, while I'm taking my wife out

An Alaskan Luncheon.
Runners of woven Indian basketry,
with white drawnwork dollies at each
of the 12 covers, were used on an oval
mahogany table. The doilies were
made at Sitka. In the middle of the
table a mirror held a tall central vase
of froste?l glass, surrounded by four
smaller vases, all filled with white
spring blossoms. The edge of the
mirror was banked with the same
flowers. Four totem poles were placed

Alaskan scenery. Abalone shells held
salted nuts, and tiny Indian baskets
held bonbons. The soup spoons were
of horn, several of the dishes used
were made by Alaskan Indians, and
the cakes were served on baskets.
The menu was as follows: Poisson

Yukon climbers (broiled salmon, po

DIFFERENCE IN THE RACES
Mexicans In the Main Unjust In
Blaming Americans for Lack
All the Mexican correspondents
who have written on the subject of
why Americans are not better liked
by Mexicans agree that it ls largely a
question of a lack of politeness on
the part of the foreigner here, aad in
some cases an ill-concealed contempt.
The latter is inexcusable, and certain
ly must emanate only from inconsid
erate or poorly educated persons, from
which no nation ls free. Politeness,
however, is largely a matter of form
and training. It is undeniable that
the Anglo-Saxon salutations, methods
of expressing thanks and apprecia
tion, etc., are simpler and shorter
than the Latin forms. To many who
have all their lives been eccustomed
to the briefer Saxon ways, an attempt
of the .more elaborate Latin politeness
seems, for them, nothing short of af
fectation, and they simply cannot do
it. There are exceptions among Amer
icans and Englishmen who readily
adopt the courteous phrrses of the
Mexicans and use them naturally, but
they are the exceptions. And it ls
difficult to see how this can readily
be changed. Our Mexican friends
should understand, on the other hand,
that if Anglo-Saxons do not, as a rule,
go through as many social formalities
as tho usages of the land prescribe,
they mean no offense thereby. They
are accustomed to taking a good
many things for granted that their
Latin cousins give verbal assurance
of. Naturally, lt is the duty of the
outlander to conform as nearly as he
can to the ways of his adopted coun
try, but human nature and settled
habits are pretty hard to make over,
particularly unless, you catch them

Pretty Good Definition.
We' hear some funny things in Fleet
street sometimes, and the following
definition of the height of aggravation,
by a gentleman in rather shaky boots,
whom we encountered in a well-known
hostelry the other day, struck us as
being particularly choice.
"The 'eight of haggravation, gentle
men," said this pothouse humorist, set
ting his pewter on the counter and -
looking round proudly, with the air of
one about to let off a good thing, "the
'eight of haggravation-why, try tag
to ketch a flea out o' yer ear with a
pair of boxin' gloves."-London Tit*
Before Days of Free Press.
Many of the restrictions that' hamp
ered the influence of the.press re^
mained in force until the close of the
eighteenth century in England. It was
not till that period that newspapers
obtained the right to criticise the pol
icy of ministers and of the king. Mr.
Walter, the first editor of the London
Times, was prosecuted for censuring
the duke of York. He was sentenced
to pay a fine of $250, stand in the
pillory for an hour, be imprisoned for
a year and give security for his good
behavior for seven years. The order
with regard to the pillory was can
celed, but he had to serve his term in
French Official Etlquet.
The wives of the new French minis
ters share in the honors conferred on
their husbands, the degree of defer
ence due to them being minutely es
tablished by the "protocole." When
'?he wife of a minister enters a, room,
if any deputies' or senators' wives are
present, they are supposed to rise
and remain standing until she is seat
ed. Other ministers' wives may rest
in their chairs, but should the prime
minister's wife arise they also must
stand to attention. And even Mme.
Brland (If there were such a person),
would have to show similar deference
to the wife of the president of the
chamber. With her, according to the
protocole, "e'est la representation na
tionale qui entre, le suffrage univer
sel la France."-London Chronicle.
Vivid at Least.
Dr. Hiram C. Cortlandt, the well
known theologian of Des Moines, said
in a recent address: . .
"Thomas A. Edison tells us that^he
thinks the soul is not immortal; but,
after all, what does this great wizard
know about souls? His forte is elec
tricity and macnlnery, and when he
talks of souls he reminds me irresist
ibly of the young lady who visited the
Baldwin locomotive works and then
told how a locomotive ls made.
" 'You pour,' she said, 'a lot of sand
Into a lot of boxes, and you throw old
