The late James T. Fiolds possessed a
remarkable memory. Some years ago
a gentleman, thinking to puzzle him at
a dinner party, informed the guosta
prior to Mr. Fields' arrival that he had
himself written some poetry, and in
tended to submit it to Mr. Fields as
Sotithey's, and inquire in which one -of
his poems the lines occurred. At the
propof moment, therefore, after the
rruoMs were seated, lie began: "Friend
Fields, I have been a good deal exer
cised of lale in trying to find in South
