Most of it Taken By the Sheiks and
Governors of Arabia.
New Orleans Times-Democrat.
"I don't believe there is a pound of
genuine Mocha coffee on this conti
nent," a coffee merchant informs me,
".or that 200 people in the -country
have ever tasted it unless they have
at some time visited Arabia and
drunk it at the table of some sheik
"The true Mocha is the finest cof
fee grown. It has a delicious flavor
that makes it as superior to the very
best of other brands as silk is super
ior to cotton, but the crop is extreme
ly limited .and hardly ever m6re than
satisfies purely local demands. Some
Arabian coffee may find its way to
this country. it may 'even be called
Mocha. but it is not the real article.,
I am sure, and none of us have ever
had it here, though we do get the best
of other brands that are grown in
Ceylon and Java. and that means
some mighty fine coffee. It is not
Mocha, however, for the whole of the
Mocha crop each year wouldn't
supply the coffee demands of one
ward in St. Louis alone for a period
of six months. 'The best and plump
est berries of the Mocha growth,
those with the most exquisite flavor,
are eagerly taken by the governors
and sheiks in the vicinity, and they
have to get their orders in advance,
so that they may be sure of the an
nual supply. The second grade ber
ries go to the wealthier citizens, not
to. the governing class, and the third,
or poorest, grade berries, which are
not much superior to the best Java
coffee, are sold to the people, and the
demand .invariably exceeds the sup
"Sometimes a few pounds of this
cheapest grade of Mocha find their
way to Coristantinople, but it is very,
very seldom, and I don't believe an
ounce of it has ever got any farther
west than that. We get the best cof
fee grown, apart from Mocha, but
the local conditions which prevail
whEre that coffee is raised prevent
us from obtaining any, and I hardly
think the real thing will ever be
found in our markets."
Polite Man's Humiliation
"Never again." said a man who, ac
cording to the New York Press, likes
to be polite to women, "do I board
a trolley car with nothing but the
exact fare in my pocket. After
standing my round in the buffet the
other evening I discovered that I
had just enough to get a ride home.
I boarded a Madison avenue car,
banded over iny nickel and found a
seat. Before we had gone four blocks
I arose to surrender my place to a
woman with a baby. In doing so I
bumped up against a pretty girl with
out a seat who was just taking her
change from the conductor, and
knocked two nickels and a dime on
. "I got down on my knees and fish
ed the two nickels from under the
floor rock, but the dime became
wedged and obstinately refused to
budge even when I prodded it with
my lead pencil. The car was chock
full of passengers, so, of course, 1

'Never mind?' Not much she didn't.

tell that girl and the passengers

faith and I proffered my card. She

Securing a Client.
A prominent politician of this city,
who has knowvn Judge Parker since
his early boyhood, told a story at
the Hoffman House the other night
of the man wvho- seems likely to be
the democratic standard-bearer in
the coming presidential campaign,
says the New York Globe.
"It was at the beginning of Judge
Parker's career as a lawyer in King
ston, a few months after he had hung
out his shingle. Cases for him were
and he seldom left his one-room or
fice during the greater part of the
day. except for his meals, for fear a
client might pop in and find him out.
One day. however, as he was out eat
ing his noonday lunch in a little res
taurant he patronized across the
street from his office, he was sur
prised by the sudden appearance of
his office boy. who was looking very

a case for you. sir,' the boy gasped.
" 'Did you tell him to wait?' asked
Parker, grabbing his hat and bound

half his lunch.
" 'Yes. sir,' replied the boy, rush

either, sir. I've locked him in.'
