Lippincott's relates that Joseph>
Jefferson, the actor, tells the following
story about his father, the late
Joseph Jefferson, so well beloved by
all theatre goers.
For a long time before his death
Mr. Jefferson was very sensitive upon
the subject of his retirement from the
stage. When lie was playing in one
of the Southern cities a paper came
out with the news that he had decided
to leave the footlights at the!
expiration of his engagement in that
Mr. Jefferson resented the printing;
of such a? story, and the reporter who j
had brought it in was1 called upon to j
tell how h* got it.
"Why," he explained, "the city edi-1
tor told me to see Joseph Jefferson |
and ask him if it were true that he J
was soon to retire."
"Well," he was asked, "did you seej
"No" he replied; "I went to his!
hotel and sent my card up to nis
Toom, and it was sent back with this
written on it: 'Mr. Jefferson has retired.'
"So, you see, I had good authority
for the story."
Confirmed for Rhemntism.
The- Rev. Joshua Kimber, in his
Reminiscences, tells the following anecdote
of the late Bishop Horatio Potter:
He had been journeying up the east
"bank of the Hudson river, stopping
for confirmation each day at adjoining
parishes. When he reached
Poughkeepsie he saw a woman at the
rail waiting for confirmation whose
face he was sure he recognized and
was somewhat familiar with. He was
also certain that she had been con-1
firmed within the week at another
place. The bishop whinnered to her;
to remain after service; and said;
"My dear madam, what do you mean
by coming for confirmation? I am
sure I confirmed you on Monday at
such a place. Did I not?"
She said: "You certainly did I have
been following you up the river and
have been confirmed every day this
He, astonished, said. "Why did you
do thai;?" Whereupon she replied:
"Because I heard it was good for

by City Council.
Charleston, Jan. ?.?At a meeting or
the special committee of city council,
charged with the preparation of a
memorial to the legislature requesting
changes in existing liquor laws looki
ing toward a legalizing of thq traffic
; and the reestablishment of the old sa|
loon system of selling by the drink,

and the committee decided to report
the drafts of the mayor's ideas on the
subject at the meeting of city council
i for final action.
The mayor's views were embodied
! in his address submitted to the Charleston
county delegation yesterday aft
; ernoon. The paper was first to be
passed upon by the committee and
then by city council, but as the delegation
desired to have it submitted at
I once, Mayor Grace did so, and further
i addressed the delegation in support
of his views. In brief Mayor Grace
asks that the legislature provide for
i the license system for the wholesale
liquor dealers in Charleston and then
pass a bill submitting the question of
the charge of the constitutional pro
vision to popular vote that legislation
may be affected looking toward the license
of the retail establishments, the
whole system to be under strict police
supervision and control, which
would be effected under the proposed

j of the plan. Mayor Grace and a com|
mittee of city council and perhaps the
j entire council will appear before the
j legislature, urging repeal of prohibij
tion enactment for Charleston county,
l the immediate licensing of whole"ments,
and the passage of a resolution
submitting to popular vote the
