Well, this bartender, not being fa
I miliar with the devious devices
, used by the progressive "press agent,"
I thought, when he received tile messag '.
? Which was addressed to him by his
??boss," that it meant that Ott was the

turally very much Incensed, especially
a; tiie Idea of sending out of town for
a man to lake his place. The Joke was
kept up by the proprietor for some
little time before making it known to
tlie "dispenser of creature comforts"
that it was an "ad." Now the mixolo?
gist is known as "Joe Ott."

LEGEND OF ST. VALENTINE.
According to the legend. St. Valen?
tin.- was beheaded on February 14. at
Rome, under Claudius. Tho old notion
was that birds began to mate on that
day, and hence arose the custom of
young persons of both sexes choosing
each other as "valentines" for the en?
suing year by a si eeies of lotiftry, and
of sending love missives to each other.
Valentines have been described an let?
ters or other missives sent by yottSg
persons of both sexes to each other on
Valentine's Dey; a printed missive ef
nn amatory or satirical nature, general?
ly sent by post anonymously. Some
valentines are highly ornamental and
artistic, while others are caricatures,
designed to reflect on the personal ap?
pearance, habits, character, etc.. of the
persons to whom they are addressed.
The practice of sending valentines ap?
pears to be diminishing year by year.
Postal returns Indicate a great falling
off In tho number of valentines sent
during the past decade, one large office
showing a decrease from 117,000 to 45,
000 within five years.
The sending of caricatures has equal?
ly decreased, and the veiled insults thus
frequently offered have been creditably
reduced. The sending of valentines is a
harmless folly, which is fast dying out.
PRETTY LINES OF POETRY.
A writ, r in Munscy's Magazlne.whose
name la no! given, is responsible for the
following pretty lines:
"The valentine I gave you first
Took all the pennies I could chase?
An np iplectlo heart immersed
In foamy seas of paper lace.
With sentiment? in eoy retreat
Beneath a flap. 'Twos rather neat.
"The next T sent was but a scroll
Containing lines of praise of you,
A fond effusion of my soul.
With similes not strictly new
And hints that 1 hail found my queen;
The tiling one does at seventeen.
??The next T sent was hothouse bred, *
With stems I purchased by the yard,
A tissue sheath about the head,
Attended by a formal card.
-Js\??hi?v.i????;?though my heart was
That sort of thing was beastly form.
"Nol gifts to-day, but hot demands,
You'll Hud beneath this seal of mine.
. Dear love. I come with empty hands
j To ask you for a valentine
For all these years a loyal foe.
Have you no valentine for mo?"
GREAT VARIETY OF VALENTINES
Judging by the display of valentines
in th ? v. indows of bookstores and news?
stands old St. Valentine seems to be
getting a new lease of life, and it is
highly probably that during to-moVr iw
a good business will be done in this
Toe display is the largest known for
years, both sentimental and comic. The
? love epistles set forth their sentiment in
every possible style of picturo nnd
verse. There are Cupids in cages cap?
tured by pretty girls; Cupids in violins
singing love messages; Cupid quivers;
Cupids hidden in roses; Cupids in ham,
mocks, swinging between two hearts;
there are strings of paiisles carrying
a message under their petals, parasols
with love-legends adorning their cov?
erings, butterflies sipping sweets from
valentine under their wings, fans full
due of the new designs Is a water-pot
from wh|ch the handle m;ty be lifted,
bringing :?> light such charming senti?
ments as this:
"Say thou the word, the one small
1 That binds thy heart to mine.
I And let each In the other find,
A life-long valentine."
MANY FLINGS ARE MADE.
A great many flings are made, both in
! the pr.-tty and in the comic valentines,
at the bicycle. For instance, in one, Cu?
pid on a wheel says as be files by:
"All down th.- stormy road~T}f time,
Voting Cupid, whatsoe'er the clime,
Upon his cycle spins:
In vain all others in the race
Essay to emulate his pace.
The cry Is still "Love wins!"
Tliero are comics on the same subject
sui ii as "The Bicyclist." "A Sight to

is spilt from her wheel. Other comics
