THE FISH IN H+S BED.
Funny Climax to an Angling Experi
ence of General Gallifet.
Long ago. in the days of the second
eimpire. G:eneral Gallifet was the aid
de-camp of Napoleon 111. At St. Cloud
his quarters were just over the im
perial bedroom. Everything around
him was very grand and very gloomy.
The window of his room looked upcd
the pond that washed the walls of the
chateau. The water was clear and
the surrounding scenery was beautiful,
but the young lieutenant felt like a
prisoner. Early one morning, while
seated at his window trying to drive
away the blues with a cigar, he espied
below in the crystal wger an enor
mous carp. The instinct of the angler,
strong in Gallifet, made the young
man's eyes snap and set his heart
The big fish was the private property
of the emperor. Consequently for Gal
lifet it was forbidden fish. But it was
such a fine follow! The resistance of
the soldier's conscience was useless. It
surrendered unconditionally. The re
maining part of the campaign against
the carp was simple enough. Gallifet
went to his trunk, brought out his
trusty line. to which he fastened a
hook and an artificial bait. With his
accustomed skill he cast his line. The
carp was hooked and hauled in through
Iere the lieutenant's fun ended and
his trouble began. The fish, landed
upon a table. overturned a large globe
filled with water and caromed from
that to a magnificent vase, which it
also upset and smashed to pieces upon
the floor. Then it began to execute a
genuine pas de carpe among the smith
The emperor, hearing the strange
racket overhead and seeing the water
trickling through the ceiling, was as
tonished. He rushed upstairs to find
out what was the matter. Gallifet
heard him coming and endeavored to
grab the carp and throw it out of the
window and thus destroy the evidence
of his poaching in the imperial pond.
But the slippery thing was hard to
hold, so he tossed it into a bed and
covered It up with the bedclothes.
When the emperor entered the room,
he noticed immediately the quivering
bedclothes. He pulled them down and
uncovered the floundering fish. His
majesty's face assumed an almost jim
amic expression, which gradually.
faded into a faint smile. He took in
the entire situation, saluted and left

BERLIN BEER HALLS.
Where One Must Display Great For
mality and Preciseness.
Derli:n is org.:nized for eating and
driuking. and so are the Beriiners or
ganized for it. Scattered all over the
city are enormous :.!aces where food
is served, wine halls where only wines
are served and beer halls which deal
in beer alone, some of them most re
spectable and some not so impeccable.
It is the rule that it is perfectly proper
to take your mother or your wife or
your sister to a beer hall or a wine
hall that is frequented by the officers
of the army. They go only to the prop
The etiquette of these places is most
formal. If the hall is crowded and
tables are scarce, before you sit down
you draw your heels together and make
a military bow to everybody sitting at
the table you select; then also you
raise your glass or stein to those at the
table when your refreshment is served.
On leaviug you bow all around again,
or the other people at the table bow if
they leave before you do. The Ameri
can way of asking the others at the
table for permission to sit down is not
ceremonious enough for the Germans,
who are the most formally polite peo
ple in the world.-Samuel G. Blythe in
A FAMILY MIX.
The Story as It Is Recorded on the
in the early part of the last century
there lived in an old New England
town a Mr. Church, who, in the course
of his pilgrimage through this vale of
tears, was bereft of four wives, all of
whom were buried in the same lot. In
his old age it became necessary to re
move the bodies to a new cemetery.
This melancholy task the much be
reaved widower undertook himself,
but in the process the bones of the la
mented quartet became hopelessly
mired. Priding himself on possession
of a New England conscience, Mr.
Church would not, unf.er the painful
circumstances, permit the use of the
original headstones, but procured new
ones, one of which bore the following
inscription: "Here lies Hannah Church
and probably a portion of Emily." An
other: "Sacred to the u:emory of Emi
ly Church, who seems to be mixed
with Matilda." Then followed these

The Star Arcturus.
It Is probable that the star Arcturus
Is one of the six greatest of all the
stars in the sky. Notwithstanding its
brightness, It is so far away from us
that It is not displaced In position in
the slightest measurable degree, as
we change our position 186,000,000
miles in our annual journey around
the sun. Could we be placed midway
between Arcturus and our sun we
would receive thousands of times more
light and heat from the star than from
our sun, and this notwithstanding that
the star's radiation is smothered by
a dense blanket of metallic vapors. In
spite of Its immense distance the star
is drifting slowly in a southwestward
direction over the face of the sky, Its
motion changing Its apparent position
by an amount equal to the diameter
of the moon in the course of about
1,000 years. So great an apparent mo
tion must indicate an enormous veloci
ty In space.-New York Press.
Peppermint and Tobacco.
If you have a boy who has begun
smoking too early and whom you wish
to cure of the habit, feed him pepper
mints. Dr. 0. Clayton Jones of Silver
ton, England, writing In the London
Lancet, is authority for this simple
cure. Dr. Jones writes: "To break the
smoking habit in a youth there Is noth
ing better than peppermint drops. He
cannot smoke with a 'bullseye' in his
mouth, and even for some time after
It Is dissolved tobacco will not blend
kindly with the taste that remains.
Socially the cure may seem worse than
the disease, but from a medical point
of view the sucking of peppermints is
far less hurtful. A common 'bullseye'
will prevent smoking for nearly an
hour. so the amount of sweets used
need not be great"

Weighty Problems That Are Puz;ling
Our English Cousins.
A problem is put forward by a writer
in a contemporary which gives food
for thought. It is this: Suppose by
some combination of circumstances you
were faced by the alternative of wear
ing a frock coat with brown boots.
Which would be the better way out of
it-to wear a bowler or a tall hat? As
the writer justly remarks, If you wear
a bowler then the thing you have to
explaiu away is the coat. If you wear
a tall hat, you have only the boots to
account for. We should advise those
of our readers who find one morning
that all the wearing apparel in the
house had been stolen during the night
with the exception of a frock coat,
waistcoat, trousers, shirt, collar, rest,
tie, a pair of brown boots and two hats
-one tall, the other round-to cut the
Gordian knot by staying In bed. An
other of life's dilemmas which may
face the traveler down the world's
dusty highway has to do with collars.
Suppose on arriving at a house for a
week end and starting to dress for
dinner you find that your evening col
lars have got wetted by your sponge
or otherwise defaced. Should you wear
a clean double collar or a dirty ortho
dox evening collar? In the former case
you will be natty, but a thing of
loathing to all properly constituted
men. In the latter you will give the
impression that you cannot afford the
services of a laundry.-London Globe.
The Great Warrior Was Fond of Per
fume and Clear. Linen.
It Is pleasant to learn if one has Na
poleon I. on the hero list that he had
very dainty habits in personal mat
ters; that he was fastidiously clean In
his person, according to an article in a
French contemporary, and poured can
de cologne into the water he washed
in, then sponged his head with per
fume and finally poured the remainder
of the contents of the flask over his
neck and shoulders. He was also ex
travagantly fond of clean linen and
during his campaigns had relays of It
sent to different places. In those days
it did not cost a farm to have starched
things laundered, for, in account with
a famous laundress in Paris, the em
peror's linen for one wash amounted to
SSG pieces and cost only a trifle over
This strikes an American as very
reasonable, but his majesty never wore
any article but once, and, as he always
undressed himself without aid from
his valet, his garments were literally
cast to the four corners of the room.

To Make Waxed Paper.
This is used for keeping substances
which contain either a volatile aromatic
ingredient or grease, which would pen
etrate through ordinary paper. On a
flat sheet of copper over a gentle fire
place a sheet of paper as a base and
then lay a second sheet on the top of
the first. Coat this second sheet with
yellow or white wax and distribute the
latter uniformly over the entire sheet
by means of a sponge, exerting a lit
tie pressure, till the paper Is every
where transparent and consequently
permeated by the wax. If the fire Is
too feeble, the process will be retard
ed. Too powerful a flame Is still more
harmful, as the paper is liable to be

used Instead of wax.-Der Industriose

IRVING AND MONTAGUE.
One of Their Practical Jokes That
Scared Their Friends.
In Scott's "The Drama of Yesterday
and Today" the author tells of a prac
tical joke played by Henry Irving and
Harry Montague upon a number of
their friends, and "in its execution was
seen the first dawning glimmer of that
tragic force that was ultimately to find
expression in Hood's 'Dream of Eugene
Aram' and 'The Bells.' " Irving and
Montague, hitherto the best allies, be
gan to quarrel on their way to a picnic,
and their friends feared some tragic
consequences. After luncheon both of
the men disappeared.
Smale's face turned deadly pale. He
felt that his worst fears were being
realized. With one wild cry, "They're
gone-what on earth has become of
them?" he made a dash down the Dar
gle over the rocks and bowlders, with
the remainder of the picnic party at his
At the bottom of a "dreadful hollow
behind the little wood" a fearful sight
presented itself to the astonished
friends. There on a stone sat Henry
Irving in his shirt sleeves, his long hair
matted over his eyes, his thin hands
and white face all smeared with blood,
and dangling an open clasp knife.
I3e was muttering to himself in a
savage tone: "I've done it! I've done it!
I said I would! I said I would!"
Tom Smale in an agong of fear
rushed up to Irving, who waved him
on one side with threatening gestures.
"For God's sake, man," screamed the
distracted Smale, "tell us where he is!"
Irving, scarcely moving a muscle,
pointed to a heap of dead leaves and
in sepulchral tones cried: "He's there
there! I've done for him! I've mur
Smale literally bounded to the heap
and began flinging aside the leaves in
every direction. Presently he found
the body of Harry Montague lying face
downward. Almost paralyzed with
fear, Smale just managed to turn the
head around and found Montague con
vulsed with laughter, with a pocket
handkerchief in his mouth to prevent
an explosion. Never was better acting

FOODS OF ITALY.
Specialties of the Friggitrici In Naples
Huge meaty chestnuts are found ev
erywhere in Italy. Peeled and boiled
il a reddish broth seasoned with lau
rel leaves and caraway seeds, the nuts
se p)altable. About two dozen of the
lage kernels .are sold for a penny. In
both Genoa and Naples the friggitrici
are interesting, and some of their spe
cialties are well worth a trial if one
can forget the unappetizing appear
ance of cooks and cooking appliances.
One friggitrice attracts attention to a
tray of golden balls which she piles in
a pyramid. The golden bails are arti
chokes. They are boiled in salted wa
ter until tender and are put in a pan
over steam to keep them hot until a
customer appears. For threepence the
vender will take one from the steam
ing pan, dry it, dip it into batter and
pop it into the hot oil. A moment
later a golden brown ball, delicious
and crispy on the outside and tender,
and succulent on the inside, is handed
to the purchaser. The frying is man
aged in such a way that when the
fritters are taken from the kettle they
are very hot, but so' dry on the outside
that they scarcely soil the fingers when
eaten from the hand. Another frig
gitrice specialty is that of cheese balls.
They are made of paste filled with
grated cheese and fried. Mashed chest
nuts, rice, chopped chicken and many
vegetables are used to vary the fillings
for the popular fritos.' Some of the
frying kettles are portable, and the
friggitrici have regular routes like the
milkmen, where they tap at the base
ment door, get their orders, take their4
tiny bellows and blow up the char
coal until it glows and then cook the
breakfast of meat bails or rice cakes]
or artichokes, which are sent in hot.-4

>f sweet potato. The gum with which
he stamps are backed is made from

Sam's lieutenants consider It the most
iarmless preparation of the sort. All

tamps is mixed by the government at
he bureau of engraving and printing,
where the stamps are made. It Is
spread on the sheets after the stamps
iave been printed. The gum, in a
iquid form, is forced up through pipes
rom the basement, where it Is made.
Chese pipes lead to a series of ma
:hines consisting of rollers, between
which the sheets of stamps are fed, one
Lt a time. A continuous fine stream
>f the liquid gum falls upon one of
hese rollers. The sheet with its wet
oating of sweet potato mucilage passes
rom the rollers into a long horizontal
tue filled with hot air. When it
merges at the other end of the flue
he gum is dry.-New York Telegram.
