THE NEW ULM REVIEW.
A MONSTROUS LAZY CRITTER.
An Aquatic Fowl That Is Too Indolent
to Eat the Food It
"During a recent trip through the
lower western section of the country,"
said a young- man who has recently re
turned to New Orleans, says the rimes
Democrat. I believe I discovered the
laziest and most stupid form of life to
be found anywhere on the globe. I
was an aquatic fowl, with a big clumsy
looking beak, in form something like
the dodo, now extinct. I have spent
much time in watching this fowl,
which is found in some of the shallow
lakes, and the chief point of interest
to me was the startling stupidity dis
played. They call them shags, I be
lieve, out west. They generally squat
on stumps or logs in the lake and
watch for the smaller fish that play
around the surface of the water. They
are fairly clever in catching what they
want, and they throw out their bills
with considerable precision when they
gig for game. But they never get to
eat what they catch until they Save
fed at least one and maybe more than
one member of another kind of water
fowl. Whenever a shag begins to catch
fish, a long-legged, long-necked water
hen will take a place immediately be
hind him. When the shag lands the
fish, the water hen simply reaches
over and gets it. Without any show
of resentment and without turning
around, the shag will continue its
watch for fish, and this is kept up un
til the water hen has finished its meal,
and then, if no other enterprising
member of the same tribe comes along,
the shag is permitted to enjoy the
product of its own sleepy efforts. I
have, on one occasion, seen one shag
feed as many as three water hens be
fore eating a single fish. I is certain
ly a singular display of stupidity, and
after having watched the performance
a number of times I am convinced that
the shag is actually too dull to even
know that the water hen stands be
hind him to steal the fish out of his
HER HUSBAND'S PARTNER.
Much o* D'Oyley Carte's Success Was
Due to His Wife's
D'Oyley Carte, the dramatist and
manager, whose recent death was sin
cerely regretted by members of the
dramatic profession, owed much of
the success he achieved to his wife,
one of the most remarkable women
in her way that ever was associated
with theaters, says the Chicago
Joining Mr. Carte's company in a
somewhat subordinate position, she
soon showed a grasp of everything
connected with the stage—so com
pletely astonishing, indeed, that
everybody used to say Miss Lenoir—
the Frenchified and dramatized ver
sion of her own name of Black—had
the head of a man and the shoulders
of a woman. She could keep ac
counts in bookkeeper fashion, dress
a piece in a way that a French dress
maker might envy, bargain with au
thors—in short, do all sorts and con
ditions of things in dramatic work,
until in the end she had all the
threads of Mr. Carte's business in her
hands, and when he and she got mar
ried it was the conclusion of a great
business partnership, as well as the
joining together of two people who
had a true and abiding affection for
In recent years the business partner
—the devoted wife—has had to per
form the duties of the tireless nurse,
and it was to her soothing hand that
poor D'Oyley Carte owed that allevia
tion he received during he tedious
•journey which lies between constant
ill health and welcome death.
COLONIAL SABBATH LAWS.
None More Rigidly Enforced Than
the Regulations Regarding
A narration of the laws relating to
the Sabbath and the prosecutions due
to them would fill a huge volume and
make interesting reading. The rigid
Puritan observance of the Lord's day
had its origin with the Puritans of old
England and reached its fullest devel
opment in Puritan New England, says
None of the laws were more rigidly
enforced than those intended to pre
vent the "prophaning of the Lord's
day." The old records are full of con
victions for violation of them. Capt.
Kimble, of Boston, was in 1656 set for
two hours in the public stocks for his
"lewed and unseemly conduct," which
consisted in kissing his wife publicly
on the Sabbath day upon the doorstep
of his house, when he had just re
turned from a voyage after an ab
sence of three years. The story is
told of Robert Pike, of Amesbury,
that, having to go on a journey, he
waited patiently until the sun sank
behind the western clouds on Sunday
evening, and then mounted his horse
but he had only gone a. short distance
when the last ray gleamed through a
break in the clouds, and the next day
he was brought before the court and
Military Advice Gratis.
"The public are very fond of offer
ing me advice," Gen. French told an
interviewer. "One fellow wrote:
'Why don't you collar your horses?'
And then I also have my little corre
spondents who take me after their
own fashion. 'My Dear French,*
came from a Rugby boy, 'I want you
to send me your signature, "but mind
you don't let your secretary write it
and a little girl, expressing herself as
very wishful to see me back in Lon
don, pointed out an immense number
of ink crosses she had traced on the
paper, and said she hoped I would
take them for kisses."

AN IMPARTIAL WOMAN.
Buried Two Husbands and Would Not
Be Laid Beside Either One
"This is the grave of the most im
partial woman on record," said the
guide in Cave Hill cemetery to a party
who visited the beautiful cemetery the
other day, saj-s the Louisville Courier
Journal. "Away over that second knoll
there is a lot containing only two
graves, and the headstone of each is
"The woman who is buried here was
married twice, and the two graves in
that lot are the graves of her two hus
bands. She tried her best to treat her
second husband as she did the first,
and even when he died she had no Jea
of showing any preference. But she
was sick when the funeral service of
her second husband was held. She di
rected that the partner of her second
matrimonial venture be laid by the
side of the first, but that enough space
be left to bury her between the two.
"By some hook or crook, a mistake
was made, and when she visited the
cemetery she found that they were
buried side by side, with no space "be
"Well, sir, she didn't know what to
do. Argued that if she should be
buried by the side of her first husband
it would not be fair to the memory of
her last spouse, and vice versa. What
did she do? Why, when she died she
left a request that she be buried in
another lot, away fiom both of them.
And it was heeded."
WHY WE NEED HOBBIES.
Onr Daily Occupations Will Not Alone
Keep Fresh the Springs
Business is not inseparable from
higher things, says a writer in the
St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Men may
be born grocers, but need not live
only as grocers. Solon and Thales,
wise men of the Greeks, were mer
chants Plato peddled oil Spinzona,
the philosopher, mended spectacles.
Linnaeus was a cobbler as well as a
botanist. Shakespeare prided himseli
more upon his success as a stage man
ager than as a dramatist. Spenser
was a sheriff. It might require a rath
er strong wrench of the imagination
to imagine sheriffs of to-day writing
another "Faerie Queen"—but why
Milton taught school, as have almost
all great men. Walter Scott, the wiz
ard of the north, was circuit clerk and
practical man of affairs Grote was
a London baker, Ricardo a stockjob
ber, and Sir Isaac Newton master of
the English mint. Paul was a tent
maker and the Great Gentleman an ap
prentice at a carpenter's bench.
"I practice law simply to support
myself," said one of the greatest of
St. Louis attorneys—an attorney-at
law, not an attorney-at-politics—"but
my real life is at home in my library."
Thoroughly practical people need the
help of hobbies to keep them from
England's Hope Is in Tailoring.
Apparently the only trade in which
the British still retain an unques
tioned monopoly is that of tailoring,
wrtes a London correspondent in the
Philadelphia Public Ledger. I was
informed at Messrs. Poole's, who are
supposed to be the best tailors in
London, that the trade with Amer*
lean visitors is enormous, and that
although American machine sewing
excels any sartorial achievements on
the English side of the water, the
hand-made garments of a high order
of art are still practically the secret
*of English tailors. Englishmen may,
therefore, take celd comfort that
-they are still able to clothe their com
WAITERS GET MANY TIPS.'
One in Philadelphia Who Makes as
tf-U High as Fifty Dollars in
Stories of big tips given in Chicago's
fashionable restaurants are outshone
by the radiance of the following re
cital of a Philadelphia waiter to a
Record reporter: it*~*
"Sometimes," said the waiter, I
make as much as $50 a week in tips."
He stood in the palm roof of a fash
ionable cafe and said this without a
blush. "The lowest tip I get is half a
dollar," he continued. "That is given
me by the young man who brings his
girl to luncheon, and, very properly,
buys -no wine, because he is not yet
married to her. The man who buys
wine with a luncheon for two has a
bill to settle of eight or nine dollars,
never less. The dinner and supper
tips are the big ones. You, for in
stance, come to me and say: 'Henry,
I am bringing five guests to dinner
here to-morrow at seven. I wish to
spend $50. Reserve that corner table
for me and see that the flowers and
the candles are beautiful. I'll drop in
at noon to look over the menu you
will draw up.' For my trouble you tip
me, maybe, five dollars. If your dinner
party is a larger one and you spend
on it, say $80, you may tip me ten dol
lars. Some exceedingly generous per
sons have been known to tip me $15
for a dinner without any swooning be
ing done by me. The biggest tip lever
got was $50, but the man was drunk.
"A percentage of my tips goes, of
course, to the head waiter. A man,
by the way, who isn't tipped half
enough is +he fellow ir^ the hall who
looks after the hats and wraps. .He
gives you no check, and yet among the
hundred guests whose things are in
his charge he remembers you, and
when you come out to go he has your
wraps ready for you without any ques
tioning or any delay. A wonderful
memory the fellow has, but he doesn't
make much money."

almost smooth dimes from being put
into the slots, and as a result many*
persons keep the worn-out dimes for
that particular purpose.
"Many druggie and others who
keep public telephones make no ob
jection to taking mutilated dimes any
more, for the reason that they keep
a supply on hand to do a telephone
business with. When they see that a
telephone user is going to put anew

and hand a worn-out dime in exchange.
Of course the telephone user makes no
objection, and in goes the worn-out or

AT THE VOLCANO'S CRATER.
American Tourists at Popocatapet)
Reach Its Brink and Are There
A party of Americans touring in
Mexico recently accomplished the un
usual feat of ascending to the edge of
the crater of Mount Popoeatapetl, the
famous volcano of the North American
continent. A member of the party
in describing the trip says the crater
is a marvel and well worth a hard
journey to see. "A huge and gloomy
pit it is," he says, "its steep sides emit
ting sulphurous smoke and fumes, and
its perpendicular walls descending, it
is said, to a depth of 1,500 feet. At
the bottom is a small lake of emerald
green, surrounded by volcanic rocks
and deposits of sulphur. At the top
there is a ledge of rock at the crater's
edge, from which we made our ob
servations of the crater and upon
which we were photographed. I did
not observe any difficulty in breath
ing or any noticeable increase of heart
action, but several members of the
party were panting painfully and were
hardly able to speak. One of my com
rades told me that he could feel his
heart beat through his coat and sweat
er. The temperature was very cold,
but it seemed to be modified some
what by the natural warmth of the
crater and we were protected against
the icy wind outside.'
