Another Anecdote of John SIcChIIourIi.
McCulloiigh frequently told good stories
nbont himself, but nono of them wcro
bettor thnn that concerning an Incident
which occurred nt Richmond, Vcv. Tho
story has been publlnhed, but It la forgotten
now. "Tho Lady of Lyons" was the
piny, and among tho players was a maiden
ntnutour who had tho stngo on the brain,
and hnd it bad. She tore passion to tatters,
and throw a fire and fervor into her
love scenes which both amused and ox-cited
tho audience. At times bIio fell from
the sublimo to tho ridiculous, and where
Claudo Meluotte, in tho shape of
was describing his palace on tho
lake of Como, repeating those tondcrest
words of llulwer, tho maiden's bosom was
seen to heave, her eyes 1111 with lire, nnd,
when ho closed with the tender sentence,
"Prithee, love, dost like the picture?" she
throw herself In McCullough's arms, crying
out in tones of superlative affection:
long drawn out. She then collapsed like
a balloon, and hung, as McCullough said,
liko a porous plaster to his form.
At this moment a disgusted newsboy In
the gallery in the same tones in which
she had uttered her last exclamation,
The houso came down. Tho audience
roared, clapped, howled, and howled
again. McCullough burst into a ha, ha
himself, and nearly dropped the love-sick
maiden. The girl, however, showed no
signs of laughter. She carried out her
part, but the next moment, with a caressing
gesture, thrust her fingers into
hair at tho side away from the
audience, and, pulling a bunch nearly out
by the roots, hissed into his ear: "How
dare you laugh, sir, at that vulgar re-mark."'
Tho paiD in his head brought the
tears to his eyes, and McCullough resumed
his part in the scene of love.
A Restaurant on tho House-Top.
Another curious holo which I penetrated
to tho other night is the restaurant which
is run for tho benefit of Tho Tribune
Tho Tribune is one of the tallest
buildings in town, and the rod which rises
from its tower is ou a piano of
with tho spire of Trinity church
itself. Tho composing room of tho newspaper
is on tho top, or ninth floor. Just
oft! tho composing room is tho small and
vapor-filled stereotyping room. In the
wall of tho stereotyping room about half
way to tho ceiling is a small door, reached
by a short ladder, which leads to a narrow,
iron spiral staircase.
Following this to the top you find yourself
in tho basement of tho tower of The
Tribune building, and another short flight
of halt a dozen steps brings you into the
restaurant, a very comfortable appearing
room with a door opening ou the roof of
The Tribune building. A trip to The
Tribune restaurant is almost as tortuous
as the windings of the fugitive young
Charles II through fair Rosamond's
labyrinth at Woodstock with Cromwell's
soldiers on his heels; almost too tortuous
to please the common senso views of the
business men in the neighboring offices
who patronized It for awhile, but have
given it over to the compositors and reporters
of The Tribune. The keeper and
his young wife live here in a manner
curiously commingling tho romantic with
the baldly practical. New York Cor.
Kansas City Times.
Shrewdness and Tact to the Last.
"You people are missing the more
interesting features of Uncle Billlo
Sharon's death-bed," said a recent arrival
from San Francisco. "The deed of trust
by which he gave all his property out and
out to his children and grandchildren had
a string to it. The old man preserved his
business shrewdness and tact to the lost.
Sharon is a good deal of a Shakespearean
student, and when in bis prime he had
knocked oil tho necks of a couple of the
Widow Cliquot's jugs he could quote the
bard by the hour. He remembered King
Lear, ond so, ufter he had mado and
signed the truat which virtually left him
a pauper he suddenly raised his head,
beckoned to Gen, Bnrnes, his attorney,
and whispered "Wait a moment. I guess
you'd better put in there something like
this, That in the event of my recovery
from this illness I stipulate that the sum
of $10,000 a year bo first set aside from the
income of the estate for my personal support
until I die. Do you understand?
You remember, general, how old King
Lear once remarked: "Fnthers that wear
rags do make their children blind." I
would avoid that. Put it in the deed
$10,000 if I get well ten and
then tho little old millionaire fell off into
a doze." Chicago Herald.
The Influence of a Great Man'H Name.
A few years ago Senator Lamar, finding
that he had a Jersey bull
calf on his hands, decided to name it
Senator George C. Vest, thinking that
perhaps this great title would put life
blood into its veins. He was not mistaken.
The poor ragged .entiling, under the
influence of milk, Mississippi air, and
Vest's name, grew rapidly, and in
time became a goodly animal. It was
not of the purest brcedf however, though
it hud some good ancestors, and Senator
Lamar finally sold it to Senator Mc-Pherson,
of Nqw Jersey. The change of
climate helped the young bull, and in the
cour8e.of a year or two it became the
chief of McPherson's herd. The other
day it was taken to the state fair of New
Jersey and it has taken the first premium
pf the Jersey cattle of that state. Cleveland
The Truflle Industry In France.
This is the season for gathering French
truffles, and the truffle-growing districts
between the Alps and tho Rhone are very
busy, the single department of Vaucluse
yielding nearly $500,000 worth in a good
year. The finest, however, come from
Perigord. Truflles are often adulterated
and "jockeyed," Hollow places are filled
with clay, or several small ones made to
appear as a single large one. In Paris,
even, imitation truffles are made of potatoes
coated with earth from the Perigord
district, or pale ones are blackened with
oak dyes. Paris Letter.
l?et l'rnllt of USO Per Cent.
In the trial of a case at Glascow, Scotland,
recently it came out that a clothing
manufacturer was employing a number
of girls, aged from 15 to 18 years,
at 60 cents a week for fifty hours'
work, and lie consequently was able to
reckon his net profits at about 350 per cent,
on work and material,

Tho whale is said to live COO or 1,000

birthday. But how long do donkoys livof
An authenticated story comes from the
Scotch Highlands to Iho effect that a
donkey died recently, the property of Mr.
Ross, of Cromarty, fu whoso family it bad
been for 103 years. It can bo traced back
to the year 1770, when it passed into tho
hands of the then J'os, of Cromarty;
though what was its ago nt tho time no
one can say. Furthermore, its death was
tho result of an accident, for it was "halo
and hearty" when a kick from a horse
ended its career. There seems uo reason
to doubt tho story. Wc thus hail, until
the end of lust week, a donkey among us
that was bora about the same Urao as Sir
Walter Scott, and whose parents, If ai
