DU Cailxu's Vain Hunt.
Paul Du Chaillu was the most gal
lant of bachelors and always openly
confessed that he was quite unable to
resist the wiles of the fair sex, so much
so that he had never been able to
choose between them. On one occasion
when he was "the lion" at a reception
given by some intimate friends in New
York the hostess in presenting him to
one of her guests said:
"Let me present you to :frs. -.
You must know her, Paul, because she
has just written a book."
"A book, madam!" he exclaimed.
"Then, indeed, am I most delighted to
uteet her. I once made a book myself.
Bgt what is the title of your book?"
"The name of it is 'What One Wom
an Thinks,"' was the smiling response.
"Ah, indeed, and most interesting!
'What One Woman Thinks!' " repeated
the great explorer. And then, with a
simulated excitement, he added hastily:
"But wheie can I procure a copy of
it? I must have it at once-immediate
ly. All my life I have been trying in
vain to find out what women think, and
it before I die I shall succeed in find
ing out just what one woman thinks I
shall thei indeed die content"-New
A Daring Eskimo Lover.
A young Eskimo had secretly courted
the daughter of an enemy. The huts
of the lovers were not far removed,
but one night the terrific cold xipped a
great crevasse in the ice, and the young
man's house was left isolated. A gorge
100 feet deep and twenty feet wide
separated it from the igloo, or hut,
containing his swectheart, but there
was a narrow bridge of Ice left across
the crevasse, and this, the young man
found, would bear his weight Eski
mos sleep in bags. The lover decided
that he would that night cross the Ice
bridge, steal the maiden he loved, bear
her to his hut and then break down the
bridge so that he and she together
might enjoy their honeymoon unmo
lested. He planned very successfully.
He crept in the dead of night into his
enemy's hut, he snatched up the maid
en in her sack without awaking any
one, he bore her over the Ice bridge
safely, and then he opened the sack to
embrace his bride; but, beholding its
contents, he gave a loud cry. It was
not the maiden, but her father, that he
Hairdressing In Japan.
Hairdressing is an elaborate study
in Japan, where the style of the coif
fure generally indicates the position
and age of the lady. Thus girls of
eight or nine wear their hair in a bow
at the back bound round with red crape,
the front left bare except for two locks
dangling at the side, and the mar
riageable damsels comb their tresses
high in front and arrange them' el-.
ther in the shape of a butterfly or a
half opened fan. A widow looking out
for a second spouse twists her locks
round a long shell hairpin placed hori
ontally across the back of the head,
while she who vows to remain faithful
to the dear departed cuts her hair
short and combs it plainly back with
out any parting.
Carlyle and His Home.
When the great writer Carlyle was
engaged to Miss Welsh the latter in
duced her mother to consent that'Car
lyle should live with both of them and
share the advantage of an established
house and income. But Carlyle an
swered Miss Welsh's proposal by say
ing that two households could not live
as If they were one and that he would
never have any right enjoyment of his
wife's company till she was "all his
own," adding that the moment he was
master of a house the first use he
would make of it would be to slam the
door against nauseous intruders.
The Word "Ragging."
The word "ragging" is more common
in England than In this country, even
If the custom is not. An English paper
asserts that "rag" Is not a slang word,
but Is a real old verb, also to be found
in use among Icelanders, meaning to
banter or irritate. In Lincolnshire and
doubtless other counties to provoke a
boy is called "getting his rag out-"
"Bullyrag" is an elaboration of the ele
mentarf term, and here also the mean
ing is clear. A ragamufln originally
heant a kind of demon.

Pudding at Degeinann of Dinner.
The custom of serving Pudding as the
first course at dinner seems to have in
terested a good many people of our
day. A gentleman from Maine in
forms the writer that it is still the cus
tom in certain sections of his state. In
the autobiography of the Adams fami
ly it is nientioned that at a dinner giv
en by the venerable ex-president of the
United States, at which his grand
children were present, the firstt course
was Indian pudding. and the little
folks were told that the more pudding
they ate the more beef they could
have. So of course they gorged them
selves on the pudding, and as a con
sequence they had no appetite for beef
when it was served. Thus were main
tained the simple and economical meth
ods of the forefathers. The boys who
came to the city from the country and
later became the successful and
wealthy merchants of Boston were rais
ed in a most frugal manner. Their
breakfast the year round was of brown
bread and milk and the same for their
supper. The dinner was of baked
beans and pie, rarely any meat.-Bos
A Picturesque Statesman.
The El Dorado Republican gives a pic
ture of an early statesman and his pic
turesque attire: When the Hon. David
L. McCabe was elected to the legisla
ture from Butler county in 1865 and
went to Topeka to be sworn in he as
tonished not only the natives, but ev
erybody else, as he was the most gor
geously dressed statesman that Kansas
had ever produced. He was very dark,
with long black hair. On his head was
a coonskin cap, the tail of the coonskin
hanging gracefully down his back. His
coat was made of wolfskins nicely tan
ned and lined with red flannel. Six
handsome tails hung from his coai tails
and flapped in the breeze as he mean
dered up to the speaker's desk to take
the oath. He wore a spotted doeskin
vest, buckskin knee breeches, hand
somely fringed; top boots, gloves made
of beaver skin, a watch chain done In
beadwork. a flannel shirt with a flam
ing red bandanna pocket handkerchief
around his neck, and it is needless to
say he created a sensation.
The following is a good example of
Inappropriate quotations: A clergyman
appointed to an East End living found
his parish church sadly in need of re
pair and gave orders for its renovation.
While this was in hand the Idea oc
curred to him to visit the mission halls
in connection with it to see what might
be needed there. In one of them which
was used as a mission chapel he found
a state of indescribable filth from end
to end and an accompanying effiuvia.
In disgust he raised his eyes toward
the roof and could hardly repress a fit
of laughter on reading the text sten
ciled on the wall behind the pulpit,
"How dreadful Is this place!" Another
story is of an old Presbyterian clergy
man who, away on a preaching engage
ment, found above the bed on which he
was to sleep the singular advice, "Oc
cupy till I come."-London Chronicle.

A Puzzle Fable.
An American heiress was wooed by a
foreign prince, who urgently besought
her to become his wvife. In order to
test the sincerity of his love she asked,
"Will you still marry me if I give away
all my money for charity and become
as poor as yourself?"
The prince considered awhile, and
then responded, "Yes, provided you
will still marry me if I renounce my
title and become a plain republican per
son like yourself."
Query.-Did she agree to his proposi

threw the stones over a lean hand shot

"Ho!" said he. "Why do you catch
my date stones?"
"Because, 0 brother," answered a
weak voice, "I have not eaten these
three days, and Allah has sent these
stones to save my life."
"Praise be to Allah," answered the
first man, "-for he has saved me also,
for here is one poorer than I."

Strabo and Josephus both affirm that

now reckoned as lost. Strabo mentions
