IT LAUKED NOVELTY
A COLLECTION OF HEIRLOOMS THAT
WEARIED AN OBSERVER.
The System of Renting Out Family
Glory and Supplying Ancestral
Trappings at So 3uch Per Hour
Has Its Drawbacks.
Two guests were being shown through
a Philadelphia mansion in which a
ouveau riche broker was entertaining
a party of fashionable friends. The
splendid array of family heirlooms, all
bespeaking a lineage of earliest colo
ial origin, deeply impressed one of the
party. He was a stranger but lately
arrived from Baltimore. Oddly enough,
his companion, a Philadelphian, seem
ed flippantly indifferent to these treas
ured relics of a family's honored his
"Remarkable collection of heirlooms
our host has," remarked the stranger
as be stopped before a battle scarred
sword of Revblutionary days.
"Yes," drawled the Philadelphian
cynically, "very interesting. But un
fortunately it lacks the charm of nov
elty for me. Already this season I've
seen the same batch of relics in three
other Philadelphia houses."
"How could that be?"
"Oh, simple enough. It only means
that all four families, our host and the
three others I refer to, hired their an
cestral trappings from the same man."
"Yes, hired them. We have in this
city an enterprising collector of colo
nial junk who makes a business of
renting out family glory to all who
were unfortunate enough to be born
"Whewl" was the only comment the
astonished Baltimorean could utter.
And doubtless many Philadelphians
would be moved to say "Whew!" if
they could learn how many members
of the Quaker City social elect are con
strained to seek the assistance of the
heirloom dealer when they wish to
give a brilliant function.
. It is a deception that'is forced upon
them, for unless you have distinguish
ed appearing forbears you stand little
chance of penetrating the sacred pre
cincts of the local fashionable set.
Ancestry, not cash, Is the open ses
ame, and even if a man can claim some
sort of a family tree his pretensions are
questioned unless he can show some of
the furniture or portraits that his
American: forefather brought with Im
on thie Mayflower or the Welcome.
Of course.if the two vessels named
had been as large as the Great Eastern
and had been loaded with nothing but
heirlooms they couldn't have carried
half the stock needed to launch the de
scendants of Pilgrim fathers into so
ciety. Hence the need of an heirloom

vanities has ancient, straight backed

It matters not from what part of the
country the applicant hails or what
particular descent he wishes to claim,
his needs are promptly filled.
For those ;who wish to pose as lineal
descendants of the stanch old colonial
patriots who fought the stamp tax and
defied the power of King George at
Bunker Hill and drew up the Declara
tion there is especially attractive stock.
For the haughty cavalier who "came
over" with Lord Delaware there are
costumes and furniture and portraits
of more elaborate style, as befits the
past of emigrants who In England
basked in the favor of the king and
were participants in brilliant court cer
The Quaker City allegiance to the
honored memory of William Penn is a
sentiment that the curio dealer has
been careful to cherish.
On his walls he has portraits of stu
dious looking Quakers. On his shelves

was exchanging thirty blankets for

It is true that this system of supply
ing ancestors has Its disadvantages.
Contretemps such as the one revealed
at the beginning of this article are
bound to occur. The hawklike eye of a
connoisseur, trained to recognize In
stantly the value, authenticity and his
tory of antiques, often pilerees the de
ception and remembers seeing the
"treasured family heirlooms" some
where else. But in the main people
are gullible, and the wealthy but ple
beian aspirant for social honors vaunts
the blueness of his blood and points
pith pride to his hired heirlooms with
but much danger of discovery.
And meanwhile the crafty Pine
street dealer smiles, waxes rich and
echoes a celebrated remark of Puck's
regarding the average Intelligence of
mortals.-Phladelphia Nort.h Ameri
A young woman teacher In one of
the. grammar schools in Brooklyn was
speaing of her work the other day.
She said that unless a person had some
experience In teaching he could scarce
ly understand how marvelously stupid
some children were and what peculiar
mistakes ordinarily bright children
sometimes make. To illustrate her
point she told three stories from her
wn personal experiences. One day,
on a language examination, the follow
ing was one of the topics: "Name three
kinds of sentences and give examples."
This is the way one of the children met
the problem. He wrote: "Declarative,
Interrogative, imperr~tive. 2+2=4.
On another day one of the questions
in a grammar examination read: "'I
cannot see it -.' Co'mplete this sen
tence by using the words plain or plain
ly. Give your reason."
One bright youth wrote this answer:
"'I cannot see it plain.' Reason: Be
cause It is too far away."
Another scholar answered the ques
ion as to why the Dutch settled on the
Hudson river by saying, "So they could
ave a place to wash."-New York
Nothing .worries a person so much as

H.ndoo weddings usually come In the
hot months, when the families have
leisure to prepare for them, but an as
trologer must select an auspicious day
for the event. The groom is ready for
his preliminary game of diplomacy,
which is scarcely more than a "bluff."
This is a pretense to visit the sacred
Ganges at Beiares and wash away his
Oins in its healing waters. Generally
there would not be time before the
wedding day to complete such a jour
ney when the groom undertakes it, but
the readiness must be shown, and the
company sets out. When the bride's
father meets them and dissuades the
groom from such an undertaking, he is
very ready to stop. le Is assured,
moreover, that his sins have not been
so grievous as to need cleansing before
his nuptials. If the bride's father is
satisfied with his spiritual condition,
the young man may need say no more,
but he returns and prepares the thall,
or gold badge, that all married women
must wear suspended from their necks.
-Woman's Home Companion.
During a performance of "Captain
Lapaisse" at a Valencia theater some
years ago an incident occurred which,
for lifelike effect, left nothing to be de
sired. During the said play some of
the actors mingle with the spectators
In order to co-operate from the body of
the house. No sooner had Miralles, the
actor, taken his seat in the stalls than
a daring pickpocket robbed him of his
gold watch. Miralles seized the man
by his coat collar and called out in a

"Police! Help! Thieves!"
The audience, taking this little epi
sode to be part of the performance,
roared with laughter. Even the police
men joined in without stirring hand or

tones of despair. "The fe!low has got

the audience broke into loud applause
at "such excellent fooling." Meanwhile
the thief managed to break away from
his captor and escaped.
The Duke of Wellington was one day
sitting at his library table when the

A Blind Man's Perception.
One of the priests of St. Francis Xa

general Impression, the blind are pecul
iarly happy and fond of jokes.
Illustrative of this, not long since
a blind-acquaintance of his whose re
maining seises, .like that ot all blind,
are exceptionally keen, was in a room
where were some lady visitors. Final
ly one of the ladies left.
"What remarkably white and perfect
teeth that lady has!" laughingly re
marked the blind man.
"Why, how do you know?" asked
"Because for the last half hour she
has done nothing but laugh!"-New.
Leaves Used For Paper.
Leaves of trees were used for writing
purposes yery early by the Egyptians
and probably by the Greeks. The Hin
dos continued the use of this material
until within a few centuries. Even at
the present time books of leaves are
not uncommon In the south of India
and the Island of Ceylon. The leaves of
some Asiatic trees, from their size and
smoothness, are admirably adapted for
books. If we may judge from the name
"leaf" being still applied to the paper
of books, we should imagine these
leaves to have been formerly the prin
cipal material in use.

HUNTING THE GORILLA.
An Animal West Africans Say Has
the Soul of a Man.
Gorilla hunting is a distinct sensation
even for the veteran hunter. This ani
mal, which has become confused some
what with fable and fiction, is a reali
ty and a decidedly unpleasant one to
engage. The west Africans are mortal
ly afraid of it, believing that the brute
contains the spirit of a man. They at
tribute to It all sorts of ferocities, like
the carrying off of a human being, who
is permitted to return after being de
prived of toe and finger nails.
"Skilled hunters have never observed
any of these doings, but they testify to
the brute's sirength and ferocity," says
Allen Sangree in Ainslee's. "According
to a French sportsman, a full grown
gorilla can bite through a tree six inch
es thick in order to secure the sap and
twist a gun barrel with the swollen
bunches of muscle that serve for arms.
His roar is terrifying and can be heard
for a distance of three miles.
"'I shall never forget how the first
one impressed me,' says the French
man, 'for I had a bad attack of shakes.
The woods had been filled some time
with a barking roar, but I saw nothing
until my guide clucked softly and
pointed to a tree alongside which stood
an immense male gorilla. There he re
mained but twelve yards away, boldly
facing us with his huge chest, muscu
lar arms, fiercely glaring deep gray
eyes and a hellish expression, until I
"'At that he dropped to all fours and
came six yards nearer, sitting up to
beat his breasts with his huge fists-a
defiance-so that it sounded like an im
mense drum. Us roar was most singu
lar, beginning wLii a kind of bark and
deepening into a bass roll that literally
resembled thunder. The short hair on
his forehead was twitching, his power
ful fangs showed unpleasantly, and,
feeling he was about to attack and in
cidentally being scared green, I shot
him through the heart. With a groan
something human and yet brutish, he
fell on his face and died quickly, like a
man. He measured 5 feet 9 inches in
length, his chest was 62 inches, and his
arms spread 9 feet. I was glad to have
the speciihen, but somehow after that
never cared to kill a gorilla unless he
actually mena'ced me."'
NOTHING WAS LOST.
An Omission In a Wedding Ceremony
That Didn't Count.
A distinguished officer of the United
States navy once told this story on him
At the time of his marriage he had
been through the civil war and had had
many harrowing experiences aboard
ship, through all of which he kept cour
age and remained as calm as a brate
man should. As the time for the cere
mony came on, however, his calmness
gradually gave way. At the altar, amid
the blaze of -brass buttons and gold
lace marking the full naval wedding,
the officer wyas all but stampeded and
what went on there seemed very much
mixed to him. Fearing the excitement
of the moment would temporarily take
him off his feet, the officer had learned
the marriage ceremony letter perfect,
as he thought, and he remembered re
peating the words after the minister In
a mechanical sort of way.
After the ceremony was over and all
was serene again, including the offi
cer's state of mind, the kindly clergy
man came up to him and touched him
on the shoulder.
"Look here, old man." he said, "you
didn't endow your wife with any
"What's that?" asked the bridegroom,
with something of astonishment in his
"Why, I repeated the sentence 'With
all my worldly goods I thee endow' sev

would not say It after me."
The bridegroom seemed perturbed for
a moment, and then a beaming light
came into his face.
"Never mind, sir," he said. "She

"Such a confusing variance in the

pronunciation which she always heard
