"Did you wait (n me?" asked the
man at the coruer table.
"No, sir," said the tall waiter.
"Then who didt" grumbled the cor- I
-I don-t know, sir," was the reply. I
"'You'd better ask the head waiter." <
The corner man did ask, but the chief I
of the staff was no wiser than his as- t
"What kind of looking man was he?" i
he asked. r
"How should I know?" stormed the 1
hungry diner. "I didn't come here to c

came to get something to eat, and it I
somebody doesn't hurry up"
The head waiter stepped aside too
soon to hear the rest of the complaint.

"None of them knows his waiter. o

There are two peculiarities about v
champagne drinking which are capable I
of explanation. The one isahe rapidity 3
with which the wine exhilarates not- r
withstanding the small proportion of
alcohol it contains. This Is due to the e
carbonic acid gas evolved, which is in- b
baled while drinking, for It is the prop- 9
erty of this gas to expedite the action t
f anything with which it is associated. t
It is estimated that one glass of cham- t
pagne is equal in effect to two glasses P
of still wine of the same strength and 9
is more rapid in action. The other pe- n
culiarity is the sort of lethargy or
deadness which follows after excessive ]
champagne drinking. This is analogous 7
to the stupor produced by carbonic acid t
gas, but It is assisted and intensified
by the excess of sugar deranging the n
tomach. The undigested sugar turns

A Storm on the Pacifle.
The captain of a San Francisco tug
thus describes a storm on the Pacific: tl
"When I say that the waves ran i
:nountain high I am not exaggerating a:
the situation In the least The tug
would be poised on the crest of a sea
and then be plunged down into a valley
if water which seemed a mile below ti
s. At times the moon would come sa
ut through the clouds, and in the un- tl
eertain light the waves seemed twice it
ts high. The wind was blowing a per
feet hurricane, and our lee rail was un- f,
er water all the time. The angry sea
ippeared raging above, below and all
round us, and nearly every wave a
nto which we dipped would wash over e
the tug. It was impossible to remain a

W oleeley's Opinion of the Chinese.
It was Lord Wolseley who regarded
be Chinese as the greatest race in the
rorld. His opinion was formed about
860, when he was In China, and he
ever renounced it. He said to a rep
esentative of the Strand Magazine:
The Chinese people possess all the
lements of being a great people. They
ave courage, physical power and ab
olute contempt for death. Today In
iat country soldiering is looked dowi
pon. Only the 'failures in life' enter
