DINED THE AUDIENCE.
And the Treat Proved a Fine Ad. For
Liszt and Rubini.
An article in an Italian review con
tains an interesting story of Liszt and
Rubini, the tenor. They were touring
together and visited a town where,
from the preliminaries which had been
arranged, great things were expected.
But they were disappointed, for when
they entered the hall they found only
ffty persons present.
Ribini was furious and said he would
not sing, but Liszt calmed him. "You
must sing." he said. "This small audi
ence is evidently composed of musical
connoisseurs of the town, so we should
treat them with respect." Liszt set
'the example with a grand overture,
and Rubini sang to perfection. Liszt
gave another piece and then addressed
Liszt as an orator was as tactful as
he had been in the role of pacificator.
Addressing his audience of fifty. he
said: "Ladies and gentlemen"-thire
was only one lady present-I think
that you have had enough music. Al
low me to ask you to take a little sup
per with us." After a few seconds the
invitation was accepted. and Liszt and
Rubini entertained the audience to
supper at their hotel, which cost them

about which nothing more would be
heard. but they decided to give their
concert as advertised on the following
night. To their astonishment the hall
was packed. There was not standing

The Smallest Pension.
Great Britain's pension system is as
'lberal as may be considering the vast
'number of persons carried on both the
military and the civil lists, but in one
case the record for smallness of pay

and tL.ese factors so combined against

could draw a pension of not any~

But .esce, and once only. did Words

ways of his time. He sat down with

Peter the Great of Russia levied a
'tax on beards. Finding that his sub

wardered all those he found bearded to

eor shaved with a blunt razor. Russia

geological su-vey of the erosion o
numerous drainage basins of the Unil

A FAMOUS DWARF.
Borulwaski, the Pole, Was Handsome

A notable dwarf, who had a long
lease of life over parts of two centu

1837-was Boruiwaski. the Pole, of
whose debut an interesting tale is
told. As a boy of fifteen, when he
was just one inch higher than a tw<
foot rule. Borulwaski was presented
to the Empress Maria Theresa, wh<
was so charmed by his good looks and
grace that she seated him on her lap
and gave him a hearty kiss. To the
queen's question as to what be con
sidered the most interesting sight in
Vienna the dwarf replied, "What J
now behold, so little a man on the lap
of so great a lady." This speech ren
dered the little fellow a great favor

A Dark Smoke.
Funny thing about smoking! If a
an were compelled to puff a good
igar with his eyes shut the operation
would lose Its zest. A man who had
ndergone a slight operation upon one
f his eyes had to stay in a darkened
room for a week with his optics band
ged. After a few days his doctor
told him he could take a gentle smoke
f he liked. He jumped at the chance
ad to his amazement found it af
orded not the slightest pleasure. To
be sure, men often smoke in the dark,
but there's always the rosy glow of
the lighted end to be seen and the
faint outline of the cloud of smoke in
the air. There's no more fun In a
sightless smoke than a saltless egg or
kiss implanted upon your own hand.
