of Prince M ornum df now became
known to the czarina, who, to avoid a
scandal, ordered lier favorite to marry
at once the ghi.
Tim "punishment" was taken by tin;
prince with resignation, which was
only natural, knowing that the young
princess was not only bewitchingly
beautiful, but also enormously rich.
The wedding took place with great
pomp and ceremony. Tho young pair
was overwhelmed with tho costliest
presents, among which thu most valua
ble was that of the czarina, lt was a
large solitaire diamond. Its won
drous lire had a beautiful color.
Nothing marred the happiness of
tho young couple, and their honey
moon passed In Joy and pleasure.
Once In a happy hour tin; young wife
approached her loving husband with
this Inquisitivo question:
"Toll me, dear, what Is tho value of
that largo diamond which von have on 1
Monomoff looked upon the czarina's
present and did not ll IIS wei' for awhile.
"Tell me honestly, sweetheart," con
tinued the princess, "how much was
given for that stone?"
"A kiss," thoughtlessly replied Mono
muff. They both laughed al the Joke.
"Won't you sdi it to mo? I will pny
you double that much for lt." And the
charming young woman demonstrated
right away her generosity by allowing
her husband to "help himself," and
the price, two kisses, was willingly
paid in fact, overpaid but of course
thal is none of our business.
"Alexandra, li' you value our lives
you must not Iel] ol' this bargain to
any one. Von know the czarina."
"I ilo promise to you, (har, that no
soul shall learn from mo Ilia prlco o?

After tho court ball, In the early

o'clock in the afternoon.
lt happened, however, that hardly
one hour after they wore rudely awak

"Who is that? Who daresY" called
out Indignantly from their bedchamber
tho sleepy prince.
"His excellency the chief of police

In Kassia every door must open be

The chief of polit e was polite.
"I must hog your pardon a thousand

Prince MonomolY threw a troubled
look In thc direction of the "lady at

tho hall. They wet, all six feet high,
very well built "ladies." They were
all richly, although a little negligently,

A fragment of n curious volume lins
fallen Into the hands of a loeal physi
cian which graphically describes the
methods of surgery ol' several centuries
ago. When lt ls considered thal anaes
thetics were unknown in those ancient
days, the modus operandi ol' Um sur
geon of the sixteenth century must ap
pear startlingly cruel in the light of
the present day.
The work ls that of Ambrose Parey,
who In 1570, being then tin: much fa
mous "elilrurglon" of his day, publish'
ed a bulky volume which became such
on established authority and held its
placo for so long a time that TO years
afterward lt was translated Into Ellg
llsh and published in bondon.
In his first book he considers (he gen
eral phenomenon of tho body lu heult li
and disease, and Iii the chapter relat
ing lo temperaments and humors ho
writes, "An humor is called by physi
cians what thing soever is liquid and
flowing In the budy ol' living creatures
Inclosed with blood." Proceeding to
the "manifold divisions of humors,"
he separates them into four parts, dis
tinct In color, taste, effects and quali
ties-namely, blood, phlegm, choler and
melancholy. Exact in his subdivisions,
he says: "All men ought to think thal
snell humors are wont to move at sot
hours of the day as hy a certain pe
culiar motion or tide. Therefore, the
blood Hows from the ninth hour of the
night to the (hird hour ol' the day;
choler to the ninth of Hie tiny. Theil
melancholy tho blood Hows from the
ninth hour of the night ls under the
dominion of phlegm."
Equally curious is the following on
spirits, which he divides into "illll
mall," "vltall" and "naturall:"
"Tho animal spirit hath taken his
seat in the brain, it is called animal
because lt ls the lire, ..ut the chief and
inline Instrument thereof. Wherefore
lt hath a most subtle ami aery sub
stance. This nnlmnl spirit ls made
and harbored In the windings and fold
ings ot' the veins and arteries of t..o
brain, brought thither sometimes of

by the nose in breathing. The vital
spirit ls next to lt in dignity and ex
cellency, which hath Its chief mansion
in the left ventricle of the heart. The
natural spirit, If such there be any,
hath its station In the liver and veins."
Describing "certain juggling and de
ceitful ways ol' healing of cures by
such means as fear, surprise and even
hy music for spider bite, the music
causing the patient to dance so lustily
(hat he shakes all the poison mit ol' his
system," ho sums up some of those
heroic remedies thus: "I would not
east the patient headlong out of a
window, but would rather cast them
soda Inly, and thinking of no such
thing, Into a great elstern filled with
cold water, with their heads foremost.
Neither would 1 take them out until
they had drunk a good quantity of
water, that ny that sodnln fall and

great length ls "inumilllo," referred to
as tho usual remedy for contusions,

ies, which becomes dry and hard" and
being ground Into medicine was "ad
ministered either ill whole ol' portion
to such os have fallen from high
places, the first and hist medicine of
almost all our practitioners at this day
in such a ease."
Ile also gives some grewsoiUC facts
connected 'alli the preparation of

Legal proceedings recently taken to
recover from a well known citizen who
belongs to the "fashionable" class tho
amount ol a tailor's bill revealed tho
(act that the man wus poor, luid no
money and no means of support and
owed many bills. Besides tailors, shoe
makers und halters, he owed money to
florists, Jewelers, livery stable keepers,
dealers In theater tickets, shlrtmnkers,
stationers and restaurateurs. One of

years at a prominent up towu restau

place to the manager, pointing to the
"Not nt all." he answered. "That bill
represents hundreds of charges and has

run big bills In a restaurant?"
"Well, lu the first placo, because wo
look upon men who come here as gen

don't remember Just how thc account
In question was opened, but usually lt
ls done In this way: Seine day, after n

at the desk marks It'O. K.' the check ls
'hung up.' and nu account ls opened
with thc man.
"In most Instances the man comes
back, as he sahl he would, tho next
day and settles lils little bill and
thanks us for accommodating him. If,
however, the man Intends to work the
house, be does not come back the next
day and Hettie, but waits three or four
days. Then he drops In mid orders a
modest luncheon or a not elaborate
dinner and scribbles his name across

the new account receives Its first ad
"Little by little the account grows,
but never by any really large charge,
and when at last the man has a little
dinner party willi a big appetite the
check ls liable to be 'O. K.'d' because
the account ls already so large that lt
would be poor policy to turn lt down.
"When the account lins grown HO
huge that we think lt should have at
tention, we give the bend walter a
tip, and without te'ling tho man In so
many words he is given to understand
that cash would be preferred to an
autograph. Sometimes the man takes
tho hint and makes a payment or asks
for more time and tells us that he will
pay as ho goes, and he remains a cus
tomer without Increasing lils account,
but generally ho leaves us and goes
to some other place and complains
about poor service here and In other
ways tries to Injure our business be
cause he can't have what be wants to
eat and drink for nothing. His account
remains open, and when lt becomes
outlawed we put lt on tho list which

dun the man."
To show how anxious some people
are to hnvo lt known that they are

would be served nil right. Then he
laid down a sum of money, more than
enough to pay the bill, and said, 'This
will save mc the trouble this evening,*
and went away. The supper passed
off nicely, the man's friends from the
country or the country part of the city
seemed to enjoy their spree, and finally
the host asked for his check, looked at
lt and then said grandly and loud
enough for all to hear, '('bargo lt.' The
Supper was a 'grand' nl?nlr in Ibo eyes
