Converting the Chinaman.
Wheu I first met him the Greek
archimandrite had been 40 years in
Peking, and had never beeu anywhere
else except for two caravan journeys
to Russia. He was an elderly gentle
man, with a smile like P.eujamin
Franklin's, and was famed at the Chi
nese c apital for keeping the best wines
and the lest tobacco. He was a
bachelor, and today I recall him when
I try to fancy Epicurus In the body.
He wore the Chinese pigtail and
clothes to match, and people said ho
could give Chinese mandarins points
on etiquette. He gave me, at hast.
many happy hours, for he talked with
a frankness and facility rarely united
In a Russian, least of all an archimandrite.
One i'.:iy, for Instance, I asked him
bluntly how many converts he bad
made. He answered that he thought
he had made one. but he did not wish

of the previous day. aud he had taken
possession of an animal that seemed
to suit the work. In the battle a few
hours later he was riding across a field

Suddenly the performance opened
The guns roared and the air was filled
with smoke and noise. Before Colonel
Marshall knew what was happening
the horse had his four 'feet ou one ot
the stumps aud was gayly dancing in
a circle. In the mean time the firing
was increasing, and the situation was
anything but comfortable, but the
horse kept on as if he were enjoying it.
"It was not until afterward," said
Colonel Marshall, "that I found the
horse had belonged to a circus and had
beeu trained to do this act amid the
firing of cannon."

Mr. Cam'pbells a.enral Adventure.
Robert J. Campbell of New York had
an odd and even awkward experience
one day which illustrates forcibly a
peculiar phase in the practice of law
in the metropolis. Returning home
late at night, he was attacked and se
verely beaten by a drunken stranger.
To allay the apprehension of his fam
ily Mr. Campbell explained that he
had been struck by a street car. He
was put to bed aud a maid sent out
for liniment and bandages. She re
turned with a strange doctor, who
proceeded at once to make a miuute
Tho examination disclosed that the
patient was suffering countless Injuries,
most of them lucurable, to his spine.
knees, thighs, shoulders and arms. Mr.
Campbell, who knew how little ho was
hurt, was even alarmed by tho result.
and his family were thrown Into al
most senseless fear. The following day
the doctor returned and announced that
he was not a physician at all, but an
"accident" lawyer that Is, one who
sues corporations for damages result
ing from physical Injuries. Ho also
brought with him several alleged wit
nesses to tho street car accident, all of
whom were willing to swear to any
thing for a consideration. Saturday
The Plaee of the Duel.
Mrs. Mlunie Walter .Myers, In her
"Romance and Realism of the South
ern Gulf Coast," gives an account of
one of the last challenges to a duel
which occurred in Louisiana. The af
fair was between M. Marigny, who be
longed to one of the oldest families of
Louisiana, and a Mr. Humble, a sturdy
es-lIacksmith of Georgia, who "had be
come a man of ioliticaI consequence.
M. Marigny took offense at some re
marks of the Georgian and sent him a
challenge. The big ex-blacksmith was

fiave the choice of weapons, and you
can choose so as to give yourself an
equal chance with j-our adversary."
The giant asked time In whjch to
consider the question and ended by ac
cepting. He seut the following reply
to M. Marigny:
"I accept, aud In the exercise of my
privilege. I stipulate that the duel shall
take place In Lake Pontchartrain, In
six feet of water, sledge hammers to
be used as weapons."
M. Marigny was about five feet, eight
Inches In height, and his adversary
was seven feet. ,The conceit of tho
Georgian so pleased M. Marigny, who
could appreciate a joke as well as per
petrate one. that he declared himself
satisfied, aud the duel did uot take
Bine Jar Tree Planter.
An old time Arizona woodchoppcr
says the blue jays have planted thou
sands of the trees now growing all over
Arizona. He says these birds have a
habit of burying small seed in the
ground with their beaks and that they
frequent pinyon trees and bury large
numbers of the small pine nuts in the
ground, mauy cf which sprout and
grow. He was walking through the
pines with an eastern gentleman a short
tini ago when one of these birds flew
from a tree to the ground, stuck his
bill In the earth and quickly flew away.
Wheu told what had happened, the
eastern man was skeptical, but the two
cut to the spot and with a knife blade
itg out a sound pine nut from a depth
of about lt inches. Thus It will b? seen

In a trained voice it is impossible to
