The American Clrl'a Shout.
There Is one peculiar feature of well
bred English society that our American
girls do not cntoh on to very readily. It
Is tho habit or conversing In undertones,
suppressing all broad and open sounds.
The average American girl speaks In
loud, clear tones, like a metallic ring.
She Is not aware that neonlo three
squares away can bear her distinctly,
out sue noes noi care a ouuon u iney
do. nueiuer out suopping, carrying on
a parlor flirtation or talking nt a hotel
table, the sonorous clangor or the Amer
ican girl's bazoo drowns all othcrsounds,
or rnthcr rlees above them, piercing the
ambient air and shattering the nerves or
all the quiet people of the .vicinage.
Ready for the Fight.
Two men riding on a railroad train.
One of them buys a book, and after read
ing It awhile throws It down, turns to
his chance companion, and says;
"This Is the dullest hook I ever saw.
It Is a fraud. I'd like to maul the au

Though tic had nearly completed his
Mlh tear, ho had preserved not only
buoyant spirits, but n buoyant, yuuthlul
agll'lly. Therefore, nheii lie began
about three weeks ago to have pall-s or
the heart, neither he nor his medical
innii, Dr. Seward, or Orange, nor any or
his family regarded Ilia matter as
serious, lie and everyone else believed
jciterday that the troublesomo malady
was either gone ror good, or at least ror
a long time. In that heller the Oeneral
ordered his carriage yesterday morning,
drovo lo Orange necompanled by his
laughter, saw several gentlemen on
business, nnd mndnnn appointment with
one of them lor llo'erouk to-day. Ho
relumed homo In excellent spirits, nto
rtlly at his meal hour and retired tu

turned, nnd n messenger on horseback
was dispatched down the bill ror the
doctor, who came back with the least
oaslble delay. H lien he entered I no
edroom or tne Oeneral ho round his
patient In extreme agony. The paroxysm
returned with a frequency that was
alntmlng, nnd the homieopathlo remedies
which the skill or I lie doctor suggesicu
were no more etllcleut than those which
had been supplied by the Intelligent af
fection or the liencral's wife and daugh
ter, who had ministered to hlui unceas
ingly fro in the llrst alarm. For four
hours he suffered the most excruciating
iikony, .oout o ctocK mere wasn
change. The eyes of the patient began
to grow brighter, anil his lace, that had
been white with pain, began ton-cover
Its usual ruddy hue. He gavu a long,
deep sigh of relltT, smiled faintly and
said: "1 feel ensy now. Thank Owl I
have pulled through." Then be sank
hack upon the pillow as If cxhnuitcd,
closing his cjes. The doctor, who was
watching his face with extreme solici
tude, saw tho unerring signs of ap
proaching collapse and whispered to
Mrs. Mct'lellan: "I rear ho Is dying."
Itwni but too true. Oeneral Mct'lel
lan raised himself on one hand, hair
opened his ryes and fell bark dead.

A CORREOTED STORY.
How a Newspaper Man Insisted on tho
Observance of Old Customs.
Say a writer In the Kansas City Times:
I saw In the Louisvllto Times last week
an anecdote of George Gaston, I saw
the same story In print about a year ago.
In both Instnnces the faots were wrong,
and to me the humor of the thing was
polled. 1 am tempted to give the cor
rect version. When Gaston lived on
M scour! avenue and dispensed refresh
ments, his place was n favorite resort
for the newspaper boys. Gaston was
always hospitable to the press gang.
and, being a kind-hearted and Indulgent
man, he listened leniently to their sto
ries about "3iv oilier vest" anu "i n Do
dropping by to-morrow," Indeed, In
those days there were very few repre
sentatives of the newspapers who were
not loutuicd to uaston tor saving ttieir
lives In moments of emergency. Ono
or tne morning-paper ooys, now
nursulnc tho thorny path ot lourn-
allsui In other fields, was a great friend

numors. "Give tne 10 cents," he said to
the Journalist, The Journalist began to
hedge. "What security do 1 get?" he
nsKeu, "I'm a time particular nooui
loaning money." "Novcr mind." ro-
tiled George, "It's to your advantage"
Inwlltlnglv the lournnlist produced a
dime and banded It over. Gaston went
bill, receipted1 It and threw It on the
counter, "ivuars imsr asaeu mo sur
prised newspaper man. "That," said
"Is your receipted bill." "And don't 1
owe vou anything now?" "Not a cent.'
"And I have paid tar bill?" "You

the eounter confidentially and smiling
Insinuatingly. "I believe that In such a
