Chamberlain and the "Pnritaa Maid."
A Baltimore woman, in The Son of
that city, tells this stcty of Joseph.
Chamberlain when ho was in Washing
ton in 1887:
"He was a biff, burly man, caring so
little for his appearance that at one of
the "most fashionable dinners of the sea
son his cravat pit turned to almost un
der his ear and his shirt stud became
unfastened, and he sat calmly oblivious
to either incident. His brains and charm
in conversation won him friends wher
ever he went. One day he called on a
lady who happened to be giving a girls'
luncheon. She went out at once to see
him, and laughingly said if he did not
mind being the only man present she
would 1 delighted if ho would come
in the dining room and take the vacant
place of one of her young friends who
had not como.
"Ho was not afraid to face a lot of
'American beauties,' so ho accepted
gayly, and the yncant place happened
to be next that of Miss Endicott, daugh
ter of Secretary of War William C. En
dicott of Massachusetts, a dovelike,
slender girl, one of the greatest belles
of the day. Tho outcome of uhia was
the marriage of the English statesman
and the 'Puritan maid,' as she was
often called, Lis neighbor at an enter
tainment to which ho had only been
bidden by that 'fate which shapes our
ends, rough hew them as we will' "
rie Cot tlie Pin.
A good many peoplo still believe in
the littlo superstition about seeing a
pin and picking it up. It makes some
of them decidedly uncomfortable when
they pass a pin by, and even if expe
rience has taught them that there is
nothing to bo gained by scooping up the
jiointed bit of wire they still dive for
one whenover they see it
An aged man was toddling across
Payne nvcnuo at its jnnetion with Wil
son some time ao when between the
street car rails at the very center of the
curve he noticed a pin. It wns a bright
pin, and it caught his rather enfeebled
gaze at oace. Being a superstitious old
gentleman, ho determined to securo that
pin. With considerable effort ho man
aged to bend over, when, just as his
trembling fingers closed upon it, with
a whoop and a row a cable car came
swinging around tho curve at the usual
terrifying rate. Tho old man went one
way, bis cane and glasses aud hat went
the other. They rushed to him and
picked him up. He was badly bruised.
nnd the ambulance was called. As they
were lifting him into it somebody no
