Tennyson aud th Dancing Master.
That is a delicious little anecdote
which comes to us from the Islo of
Wight. A popular dancing master in
the island who had taught the young
Tennyson was one day crossing to the
mainland iu the same steamer with
their mother. After a little talk, du
ring which the professor of tho "light
fantastic," referred in somewhat dis
mal tones to tho success of hor litis
band's poems, this true nit 1st nnurn
fully shook his head for a space, and
at last gave- utterance to his sad
thought: "Ah, madam," exclaimed he
to tho much wondering Mrs. Tennyson,
"ho may bo a vey lino poet, but I
grieve to say that any one with an eyo
can see that his deportment was shame
fully neglected in his youth."
It was In Eden, ami Kve said,
Adam, dear, do you never cat an ap

answer; nnd us Adam laughed at his

He Dula t Kuow Him.
It hruiveneil oy yers ago that
there dwelt in a certain Boston strept.
suppose we say Bedford street two
families which, although near neigh
bors, had no neighborly relations tho
ono with tho other, nor even rictpiain
tancc. This grew out of the fact that
while the heal of ono bouse let us
call him Jones was of somewhat "low
condition," the other, whom we will
stylo Pedigree, was "upper crust, a
regular pairirian." It rather troubled
tho Jones family to have the Pedigrees
treat them its though t.iey didn't exist,
but they managed to worry aloug, and
in time the Jones boys grew to be men
and entered up"ii the serious business
of life, ono of lliem to sti ,h good pur
pose that he iii ipiired wealth and be
came tho president of a bank. As
there ore tifiy such institutions in Bos
ton, it is not worth while to try to guess
One day ono of thn Pedigrees re
ceived a check on this same bank, and,
as he was pa-sing, slopped in to have
it cashed. The idler was all polite
ness, said ho had no doubt il was all
light, but added that tho rules of the
bank required that the presenter of a
check should bo identified before it
could be honored. Mr. Pedigree found
no fault with this, and added that ho
had no doubt that Mr. Jones, the presi
dent of tho bank, could furnish tho
