For the Junior rannaer.
A man who wanted to lecture called

He aroused their Interest with a lec
turer's art, says the Lyceumite, but
unfortunately the senior member was
just starting on a trip and would not
return for at least a month.
The senior partner called the young
man to one side and exacted a solemn
promise that he would not visit an
other bureau or read his lecture to
anybody until after he had given this
particular-manager a reading and a
chance -to make him an offer a month
The interest of the junior member,
however, was at white heat, and he
kept sending for the young lecturer, in
sisting that he come down to the office
and read his lecture. The young man
refused with as much tact as- possible,
but this only increased the anxiety of

stead of quieting the junior manager,

us all much valuable time. I'll tell you
frankly, my boy, it won't do. There's
no message in it; it is loosely construct

Burn It and try again."
When the senior partner returned he
called up the young lecturer and sound

"How do I know you have not been
to every bureau in town? You promis

The Rain In the Wood.
The lamentable effects of the gener
al destruction of forests are now suf
ficlently recognized in all civilized
countries. Such destruction Invites
devastating floods In mountain streams
and causes the surrounding land to
dry up. Forests act like vast~ con
densing screen. They preserve a
moist atmosphere about them, atten
uate the force of torrential downfalla,
promote a more gradual melting of the
snow In early spring and protect the
sol against too rapid evaporation.
And yet the manner In which forests
act their beneficent part Is not exactly
such as might be supposed. They pre
vent a large part of the rain that falls
from reaching the soil at all. It is es
timated that In European climates the
forests evaporate directly or transpire
physiologically four-fifths of the rain
that falls upon them. Thus the forest
atmosphere is no less Important than
the forest soil In equalizing the ci
matic conditions of a country.-Youth's
Tale of a Coat.
The clawhammer, or evening coat,
has many oddities of cut These oddi
ties were.once essentials. There was,
in fact, a time when every idiosyn
crasy of the clawhammer served some
useful purpose. The cutawP.y front of
the coat, for instance, was origInally
cut away so that the wearer when on
horseback wouild not be incommoded.
The two buttons at the back were for
fastening up the tails out of harm's
way, each tail having In the -past a
buttonhole at its end. The sleeves,
with their false cuffs, are relics of the
days when sleevees were always turned
back and therefore were always made
with cuffs that unbuttoned. The coli
Jar, with its wide notches, Is a sur
yval of the old collar that was notch
ed In order that Its wearer could turn
It up conveniently In cold or stormy
weather. The dress coat, In a word, is
a patchwork of relics--relics once es
sental, but now of no use on earth.
Webster's Fine Talk to a Fish.
I had a chat once with old John At
taquin, then a patriarch among the
few survivors of the Mashpee Indians.
He had often been -Mr. Webster's
guide and companion on his fishing
trips and remembered clearly many of
their happenings. It was -with a glow
of love and admiration amounting to
worship that he related how this great
isherman, after landing a -large trout
on the bank of the stream, "talked
mighty strong and fine to that.fish and
told him what a mistake he-bad made
and what a fool he was to take that
ly and that he would have been all
right If he had left It alone."
Who can doubt that patient search
would disclose somewhere In Mr. Web
ster's speeches and writings the elabo
ration, with high Intent, of that
"mighty strong and fine" talk address
ed to the fish at Mashpee?-~"Fishing
and Shooting Sketches," by - Grover
A Literary Tragedy.
When Carlyle had finished the first
volume of his great work on the French
revolution he lent the manuscript to
his friend John Stuart Mill. One even
ing soon afterward Mill entered Car
lyle's door, pale as Hectog ghost, 'with
the dismal information, gased out In
almost inarticulate words, that .-tIh
the exception of about four or - fve
sheets the manuscript was completely
annihilated. Mill had left it too care
lessly lying about, and a servant, think
ing It so much waste paper, had burned
It. Five months of steadfast, occasion
ally excessive and painful toil utterly
lost! For three weeks Carlyle could
do nothing but read Marryat's novels.
Then one night, sitting talkng to his
cook, he decided It should be 'written:
again and eventually finihed "such a
task as I never tried before or since."

WAGER OF BATTLE.
The First Duels Are Said to Have
Been Fought In Italy.
The first duels were fought in Italy,
according to Millingen, who speaks of
a manuscript discovered at Cassel and
describes a duel between a father and
a son in the reign of the Emperor The
odorie. When Charlemagne forbade
wager of battle among the Lombards
he encountered the fiercest opposition
from the nobles. Early in the ninth
century De Medicis, a-knight, defeated
in single combat the - bandit Mugel,
who devastated the Florentine district
now called after him, Mugello. Othe
II. granted the prayer of the nobility
for the re-establishment of wager of
battle in 988. Woinen and priests
were not compelled to accept it. The
Normans showed less -gallantry. With
them a woman had to accept, nor could
she name a champion. Her male op
ponent, however, was buried to. his
waist In the -earth. Armed with a
club,- he tried to strike-her as she-cir
led around him, his weapon being a
ball-of Iroizat the end of a cord. If he
ftled- to touch her at the third at
tempt - he was vanquished, which
meant to him death with dishonor.
Beccarin says that the reason so
many duels were fought In Italy In
the early days is that where the law
does not afford protection one must
look to single combat to retain the re
speet of one's fellow men. In the mid
die ages the ferocity of Italian duels
passes belief. "Any way of putting an
enemy to death ('ogni modo') is good
enough," says one of their writers.
"When an Italian spares his vanquish
ed adversary," says Brantome, "he 1
mnims his arms and legs and gives
him as % -memento of his kindness and
generosity a hideous gash across the
face." Lampagnano practiced on a
painted model of Galeazzo Sforza be
fore he stabbed him. Dueling was
called "a- scienza cavalleresca."-Corn
Neighbors Got Fooled.
"I was literally coughing myself to
death, and had become too, weak to
leave my bed; and neighbors predicted
that I would never leave it alive, but
they got-fooled, for thanks be to God, I
was induced to try Dr. King's New
Discovery. It took just four one dollar
bottles to completely cure the cough
ad restore me to good sound health,"

Hard on Beggars.
The philanthropist, banding the beg
gar a dime, said:
"The world-Is in a bad enough way,
dear kno-'s, but I am not one of those
men who -say that It goes back Instead
of forward. Take your ease, for in
stance. You are practically unmolest
ed, aren't you? A -few months is the
most you ever get for begging. And
do you know what would have been
done to you in the fifteenth century?
The first time they caught you begging
they'd have whipped you at -the- cart's
ta. The second time they'd have slit
your right ear and bored a hole in your
left ear with a hot Iron. Catchin you
a third time, they'd have put you to
death as a felon."

It Is Woman's Way.
When a woman undertakes to decap

When Hoops -Began.
When were hoops "in" for -the first
time? According to Strutt, "trundling
the hoop Is a pastime of uncertain or
igin, but much in fashion at present"
(1801). Dr. Murray's dictionary, inci
dentaly remarking that the original
hoop affected by boys was a barrel
hoop, gives no English reference to It
earlier than 1792. -But the hoop was
wel known to ancient Greek and Boe
man boys, who called It a "trochus"
(wheel). Their hoops were made of
bronze, and- representations of them on
ens show that they were driven by a
little book -with a wooden handle, very
like the modern boy's hoop stick. This
was called by -the Greeks "elater"
(driver) and by the Boznmn "clavis"
(key). Sometimes the ancient hoop had
bels attached to it, and modern Lou
don may be glad to be spared at least
that exasperation.-London Chronicle.
One of the most singular instances of
puishment for an oversight was that
-shown by the commitment of an alma
na -maker to the Bastille in 1717. It
was made out by order of the Duke of
Orleans, regent during the minority of
Louis V. of France, and read as fol
lows: "Laurence d'Henry, for disre
spect to King George I. In not mention-.
Tg him in his almanac as king of
Great Britain." How long this un
lucky almanac maker remained in pris
on Is -unknown. The register of the
Bastille, -examind at the time of the
revolution, failed-to throw any light on

for seventy days. After this it was
wrapped in bands of fine perfumed

WHISTLER AS A TEACHER.
G Genius Who Showed DiSculty I

Whistler was certainly a genius, but
