The Real Drummer.
"The term 'drummer,'" said a trav
eling salesman for a Market street
wholesale house, "has come to he re
garded as synonymous with cheek,
flashiness and dissipation. Just why
this should be I don't know, unless
people get the idea from stage jokes
and comic papers. Perhaps years ago
there was some justification for it.
but there is no room for that sort of
man today. Competition is too keen.
The traveling salesman who stands
well with his trade and with his own
firm must attend strictly to business.
It may sound strange and contrary to
general belief, but most men in my
line of work are of a r-ligious turn.

and wind up by joining the church.
Then, too, the country :nerchant is

and is generally a pillar of the church,
and the churchgoing drummer is apt
to make a greater impression on him
than does one who is more worldly."

Pittsburg Dispatch, "is the mangos

fortunately the fruit is too perishable,
and to taste it you must go to the coun

Incased in a hard purple shell, lined
with an exquisite pink gauze, are a
number of snow white sections some
thing like those of an orange, only each
one growing smaller as they round the
core. Each section contains one seed
incased in a substance like the pulp of
the grape. To describe the flavor would
be impossible, but if you can' imagine
a perfect blending of the flavor of the
grape, orange, pineapple and banana
y-ou may have a notion of the delicious
flavor of the mangosteen."

First English Book on Sport.
The first book on sport ever printed
in the English language was a rhymed
treatise called the "Boke of St. Al

Juliana Berners. Its second edition was

descendant of her family, Lord Ber
ners, was the translator of Froissart's
"Chronicles." It is true that old manu
scripts existed, such as the "Venerie
o Twecy" of the time of Edward II.,
but it was Dame Juliana who was the
real ancestress of sporting literature
in England, for she also composed an
essay on hawking and another on
"Fishing With an Angle," the last be

ton himself did not disdain to take a
hint from its pages.

an ante Revolutionary story. A sol

The farmer was loft alone with the
soldier to see that he did it. After
the soldier had consumed a portion of
the bird be took his gun. presented it
at the farmer and told him to eat the
remainder of the cr'ow or he would
shoot him. This was the origin of the
eating crow story.
