a Washin Estonian who recently returned

I've always found a morbid sort of in

"Well, the young chap's manner was
so pleasant and winning that I could
only thank him for his kindness, and
we started over the grounds. We
hadn't gone far before a middle aged
man, also well dressed and well groom

us down the gravel walk, and he beck
oned to my companion. The young
man excused himself courteously and
went up to the middle aged man. The

me. 'You mustn't mind a little thing
like that, though. Both of those men
are as crazy as loons. '
"I turned around, and there, stand

rear, was a little old gentleman, neatly
dressed in black, and with a quizzical
ami Id on his features.
"'Sorely,' I said, 'you cannot mean
that that rational speaking, pleasant
mannered young man who was conduct

" 'Mad as a March hare,' repeated
the old gentleman flatly. 'Incurable

man that he went off 'with is also a
very sad case very. Thinks he is the

Lots of visitors are taken in the same

to be here in my unofficial capacity to

gentleman told me, I fell in with him,
and we rambled around the huge gera
nium arbors, and finally entered the
enormous glass building where the cul
tivation of violets is carried on.
" 'Nice array of flowers, isn't it ?'
the old gentleman inquired of me, wav
ing his hand at the beautiful beds of
violets in bloom. 'I am not inordinately

"I congratulated the old gentleman
upon the result of his labors and was

the main building and introduce me to
the superintendent when he suddenly
excused hin'self, saying that he had
left his spectacles on a lench in the

he don't. He can't. No crazy man can

the length of the raised violet beds, wa

"I passed out of the glass building
and started for the entrance to the main
building, there to present my letters.
As I was about to walk up the steps to

It was lnnchtime and the "frankfur

were doing their best to appease the ap
petites of the 200 or 300 newsboys who
throng Park row. One of the dealers in
giving change to a buyer accidentally
dropped a dime, and before be had time

stooped down and grabbed it. Then en

A Punctual Man.
A certain Mr. Scott of Exeter whose
business required hint to travel con
stantly was one of the most famous
characters for punctuality in the king
dom. By his methodical habits, com
bined with nnwearied industry, he ac
cumulated a large fortune. For a great
manv years the landlord of every inn
in Cornwall or Devon that he visited
knew the exact day and hour he would
arrive. A short time lefore he died, at
the advanced age of 80, n gentleman
who was making a journey through
Cornwall put up at a small inn at Port
Isaac for his dinner. He looked over
the bill of fare and found nothing to
hia liking. He bad, however, seen a fine
duck roasting on the fire. "I'll have
that. " said he.
"Yon cannot, sir," replied the land
lord. "It is for Mr. Scott of Exeter."
"I know Mr. Scott very well," re
plied the traveler. "He is not in your
"Very sorry," said the landlord,
"but six months ago, when he was last
here, he ordered the duck tobe ready
for him this day exactly at 3 o'clock. "
And to the amazement of the travel
er, who chanced to look from the win
dow, the old gentleman was at that
moment entering the inn yard about
five minutes before the appointed time.
Harper's Round Table.
An Acceptable Clock.
A well known professor sometimes
became so much interested in his lectura
that when the noon bell rang he kept
the class five or ten minutes over the
hour. Certain restless spirits among the
stndents thought they would give him
a gentle hint, so they bought an 'alarm
deck, set it to go off precisely at -noon
and placed it on the professor's desk
when they came in to the next lecture.
They knew that he was a little absent-
minded and expected that he would not
As the noon hour 6truck the . alarm
went off with a crash, and those of the
class not in the secret started and took
in the joke at once. There was a round
of applause. The professor waited until
the alarm and the applause were over
and then said: "Young gentlemen, I
thank you for this little gift. I had for
gotten it was my birthday. An alarm
clock is something my wife has needed
for our servant for some time. It is a
very kind remembrance on your part."
The professor then went on to finish a

It is not likelv that any English

ourselves to understand it perhaps by

fine of Dater. Thompson & Co. It was
something like 5 me 10 cents a corner;
so you see it was easy for a man to lose
as much as $1.90 in an afternoon. Play
began after the Sudbury dinner hour,
half past 1. and lasted until teatime.
The old roosters became so wrapped up
in the game that nothing short of an
earthquake could have disturbed them.
Brokers in New York could do nothing
to shake the interest.
The game was played at the time of

selling the stock short' through an

the eventful day he received a telegram
from his brokers advising him' of the
situation. The game was stopped just
long enough for him to read it and lay
it aside. ' In 20 minutes a second dis
patch arrived, was read and cast aside.
Doubleday was winning at the rate of
35 cents an hour. Wbat did he care
about Hannibal and St Joe ? Later in
the afternoon a third . summons came
from Van Schaick & Co.. and at
o'clock a fourth. Then Doubleday arose
and remarked: "Gentlemen, I have en
joyed the game. My winnings are ex
actly f 1.65. I must say good afternoon.

could settle for 100,000. At the time
the first telegram was sent ho could
have settled for $25,000, at the time of
the second for $50,000, the third for
$75,000. He had ample warning, but
in the thick of the Sudbury game of
whist he believed the rise was only a
threatening flurry. New York Press.

One of these stories relates that an
honest mason once had a contract to
build a small house of stone. He came
early and began from the inside to lay

his young son brought him his dinner,
peeping over the wall as he handed the
basket to his father. With honest pride
in his eye, the mason looked over to the

The mason looked around. It was

When I was a lad, fully half the pop

poor, the banker equally with the work-

schoolmaster always carried his snuff
loose in his waistcoat pocket, and in
numerable were his dips into it with
two fingers and a thumb in the course
of the day, while the big gauffered frill
