Crushing the Curate.
One of the first tasks they set the
new curate, who was handicapped by
youth and inexperience, was to investi
gate the bona fides of a "widow wo
man" who had applied to the church
for help. He departed nervously on
his errand and knocked, as ill luck
would have it, at the wrong door.
"How long has your poor husband
been dead, my good woman? What
number of children have you? Are
any of them working? If so, what
amount of money are they earning
altogether?" were the questions he
fired, like shots from a revolver, at
the slatternly woman who answered
his summons "I presume I am ad
dressing Mrs. Harriet Smith?" he add
t&, noticing with alarm that she look
ed angry.
"No, you ain't," answered the woman
snappishly. "My name is Selina Jack
son, my bairns go to school and my
'usband's doin' what is necessary to a
plateful of steak and onions at this
very moment. Would you like to know
anything else? Where I was born?
When I was baptized? At what age I
started courtin'? Perhaps," she con
cluded sarcastically, rolling her tatter
ed sleeve up above the elbow, "you'd
like to see my vaccination mark before
you go?"

Disraeli's Nuptial Joke.
There was a little Joke between them
(Disraeli and his wife) which I heard
from the late dean of Salisbury. "You
know I married you for your money,*'
Disraeli would say to her. "Oh, yes,
but if you were to marry me again you
would marry me for love!" was the
regular reply, "Oh, yes!" her husband
would exclaim, and the little nuptial
comedy ended.
But what Disraeli said to Bernal Os
borne once about his marriage is much
better worth the telling. It was at a
dinner party after dinner when the
taen were alone. "What did you mar
ry her for?" Osborne asked in his
characteristic way. Disraeli twiddled
his wineglass in the pause that fol
lowed this point blank inquiry. Then
he lifted his head slowly and looked
the other very expressively in the
face. "For a reason," he said, "which
yon could never understand grati-
tude."-From "Lord Beaconsfield and
Other Tory Memories," by T. E. Keb-

Comets In Olden Days.
People nowadays do not regard the
comet as one of those signs that fore
run the death or fall of kings, but the
superstition was still current in the
time of Queen Elizabeth, though, to
the amazement of her courtiers, the
queen calmly scorned it It was also
thought that if the sovereign would re
frain from looking at the malignant
celestial passerby no harm would come
to her. On one occasion Elizabeth's
attendants shut and curtained her win
dows, but her majesty, as might have
been expected, with "a courage an
swerable to the greatness of her es-
tate," caused them to be opened, cry
ing as she looked up: "Jacta est alea
the die is cast!" Then, like King Knut
on the seashore, she read her people a
homily, asserting that her "steadfast
hope and confidence were too firmly
planted in the providence of Ood to be
blasted or affrighted with those beams
which either had no ground in nature
whereupon to rise or at least no war
rant in Scripture to portend the mis
haps of princes."
Queen Elizabeth as an Ale Drinker.
There is an amusing letter written
by the Earl of Leicester to Lord Bur
leigh as to the lack of sufficiently
strong ale for the queen at Hatfield.
"There is not one drop of good drink
for her here. We were fain to send
to London and Kenilworth and divers
other places where ale was. Her own
beer was so strong as there was no
man able to drink it." Ale and bread
were the chief items of the royal
breakfast. The quantity of ale con
sumed by ladies at breakfast in those
days was considerable, for in the reign
of Henry VIII. the maids of honor
were allowed for breakfast "one chet
loafe, one manchet, two gallons of ale
and a pitcher of wine." A Lady Lucy
made a mighty tonic of the national
brew. Her breakfast was a chine of
beef, a loaf and a gallon of ale, and
for her pillow meal a posset porridge,
a generous cut of mutton, a loaf and a
gallon of ale Westminster Gazette.
The Smelts Were Biting.
John Quincy Adams of Massachu
setts, third of that name, was very
fond of fishing and not especially fond
of his legal profession. One day, the
story runs, a case in which he was
counsel was down for trial in a Mas
sachusetts court. Mr. Adams did not
make his appearance, but sent a letter
to the judge. That worthy gentleman
read it and then postponed the case
with the announcement:
"Mr. Adams is detained on impor
tant business."
It was afterward learned by a col
league of Adams that the letter read
as follows:
"Dear JudgeFor the sake of old
Izaak Walton, please continue my case
till Friday. The smelts are biting, and
I can't leave."
