A WHISTLER STORY.
The clImax of a Dinner In Honor' et
the Eccentric Artiast.
At the close of the case of Whistler
against Ruskin, the former, finding
himself very much In need of rest and
recreation, decided to make a southern
trip. When he arrived in Venice his
American friend thought to cheer him
by giving a Uile dinner In his honor,
to which were bidden several friends
of the artist, principally Americans
and some few Italians. During the
meal there arose a discussion which
left an opening for Mr. Whistler to
use upon his host one of those keen,
incsive, verbal thrusts peculiar to him,
which left wounds extremely difficult
to heal. The whole company was
startled, but the host merely smiled,
seeming to notice only the brilliancy of
the attack. Presently, however, the
dinner came to aLn end and the foreign
guests took their leave. Then the host
turned upon Mr. Whistler and, in a
voice trembling with suppressed anger.
"Jimmie, do you know that you bru
tally Insulted me tonight'?''
"Yes," replied the artist thoughtfully.
"Well," continued the host, "I held
my temper while there were others
than our own country-men present, but
do you k-now what I shall do if ever
you speak to me like that again?"
"I'll grab the nearest water bottle
and smash it over your head."
The rest of the company sat quite
still, horror and dismay In their hearts,
while their angry host glared across
the table at his antagonist. After a
few seconds Mr. Whistler said in a tone
of childlike innocence:
"Then I know what I'll do. I'll never
say anything like that to you again."
"Neither Is a dictionary a bad book
to read," says Emerson In his essay on
books. "There is no cant in It, no ex
cess of esplanation, and it is full of
suggestion, the raw material of possi
ble poems and histories. Nothing is
wanting but a little shuffling, sorting,
ligature and cartilage."

New Way of Using Chamberlain's Cough Rem
Mr. Arthur Chapman writing from
Durban, Natal, South Africa. says: "As
a proof that Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy is a cure suitable for old and young
I pen you the following: A neighbor of
mine had a child just over two months
0od. It had a very bad cough and the
parents did not know what to give it. I
suggested that if they get a bottle of
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy and put
some upon the dummy teat the baby
was sucking it would no doubt cure the
child. This they did and brought about
a quick relief and cured the baby."

A story is told of a Louisiana mer
chant who came to New York deter
mined to secure a bargain. He wanted
cheap cloaks, and after trying in vain
to suit himself at the wholesale houses
he bought a job lot at auction. He ex
amined the goods hurriedly and had
them shipped home. In due time he
was confronted by an excited head
salesman who said the garments were
out of style.
"They didn't look that way." said the
"But they are." replied the clerk.
The merchant persisted that the
cloaks would sell, but they didn't. In
desperation he returned them to New
York to be disposed of to best advan
tage. On his nest trip to New York he
again visited an auction house and
bought a lot of cloaks. When be re
turned home and examined his pur
chase he saw t'h'at he lwi bought the
same lot as before.-Wo .'s Work.
The Bird- Monopolist.
As is generally known. the cuckoo
lays its eggs in the nests of other birds,
leaving them to be hatched and the
young cuckoos reared by their foster
parents. The young cuckoo throws the
other birds out of the nest and gets all
the care itself. After murdering its
foster brothers and sisters in the most
deliberate and callous way it Is thence
forth tended with the greatest devo
tion. Long after it has left the nest
the great bird, apparently big enough
to get its own living and many times
larger than its foster parents, is fol
lowed about and fed by them with the
same care as when in the nest.
