Free Lunch in a Duy Goops
Store.?One of the largest dry
goods stores in Paris is that of M.
Boucicault et Fils, which bears the
name of Bon March. It sells $10,
000,000 worth a year. Of it Mrs.
Isabella B. Hooper thus writes in
a, private letter, published in the
"For the accommodation of cus?
tomers there is a pleasant refresh?
ment room, handsomely frescoed,
and without money or price one
may have a simple lunch for the
asking. This arrangement was
suggested, we are told, by certain
American ladies, who expected, of
course, that a fee would be charged
for the lunch; but M. Boucicault,
perceiving that his foreign custom?
ers were often compelled, through
fatigue, to stop out for a lunch,
and then did not always return,
concluded to mako them comforta?
ble at his own expense, reaping bis
profit by the increase of sales, and
ho is fully satisfied of the wisdom
of the experiment. He then con?
ceived the project of a reading
room close at hand for gentlemen,
that they might bo. kept in a peace?
ful state of mind while their wives
and daughters were judiciously ex?
pending money for the benefit of
the whole family. This also ought
to be a success, for it is a most in?
viting room, filled not only with
newspapers and conveniences for
writing, but with books of most
admirable photographs, attractive
to the moat fastidious, and should
reconcile the grumpiest husband
to his matrimonial fate.
"Certain American ladies, not
being permitted to pay for their
lunch, nor even to remunerate the
waiters, have put up a 'poor box,'
which I heard of afterward, but
did not happen to see, and its con?
tents are faithfully administered, I
? have-no doubt"
Fx Suimmlny! Ish Dot So??There
is doubtless .such a thing as exces?
sive r promptness in emergencies.
Preaehco of mind and determina?
tion are admirable qualities in
themselves, but it sometimes hap?
pens that a decision made upon
the B^'ur of, the "moment is regret?
ted 'upon a more deliberate survey
of the field. This remorse seems
to have overtaken lately a worthy
Dutchman of Anaka County, Min?
nesota. The Dutchman was seek?
ing to reach a town at some dis?
tance from Sank Centre, and to ac?
complish this must drive over the
prairie from the latter town. He
was unaccustomed to the road, and
night overtook him with his vehicle
fast in a slough and no town in
sight. He sought the solitary farm
house visible, and asked permission
to stay till morning, the farmer tell?
ing the traveler, however, that it
would be necessary for him to sleep
with the children or with tho farmer
himself, as their accommodations
were limited. Quick as lightning,
the Dutchman expressed his opi?
nion not to sleep with "bodderation
8hiltren," so he slept with tho
farmer. The reBt of the story may
be given in his own language:
"Veil, in der mornin', ven we comes
mit der stairs down, I see two girls
apout seventeen und nineteen years
old, und I ask der old man, pees
dem girls die chUtren you told me
apout? und he Bay 'yaw; dem is
mine only shiltren!" und I say to
myftelf, py ?himnihiy! ish dot so!"

The Lord of Roanoee.?As a cu?
rious item of history, the following I
is extracted from Mr. C. Edward
Lester's great historical work, en?
titled "Our First Hundred Years:"
"Ang\ist 13,1587.?Although old |
provocations to revenge still haunt?
ed the minds of the surrounding
Indians, yet the mother and family
of Manteo gave a warm welcome
on their island of Croatnn to the
new English visitors; and on the
13th of August, at the command of
Sir Walter Raleigh, that faithful
Indian chief received Christian
baptism, and was made a feudal
baron, under the title of Lord of
Koanoko. This was the first and
last peerage ever created by Eng?
land on this Boil." This is a curi?
ous bit of history.
"What's this crowd around here
for?" demanded a policeman, the
other night, as ho came upon a
I dozen boys grouped near tho gate
of a house on Second street. "Bo
still," roplied one of the lads; "old
l John is coming, tight as a brick,
and we're waiting here to seo the
old woman pop him with the roll?
ing-pin as soon as he opens the
I front door."
"It is not our fault," says a Mil?
waukee editor, "that we are red?
headed and small, and the next
time that one of those overgrown
rural roosters reaches down for our
head and suggests that some fellow
in the ball-room has lost a rose-bud
out of his button-hole, there will
be trouble." i
Said a colored Georgia preacher:
