One day three friends iu Paris were
taking a walk together.

"And I," remarked the third oue.

Idea. He led his friends to a music
publisher and made him au offer:
"Buy from us a song. This gentle
man wrote the text; that one set it to
music, and I shall sing it. as I am the
only one of us with 'a good voice."
"Well, sing it for a trial," replied the
The young man complied, and the
publisher seemed to be satisfied. He
paid 15 francs for the song, and the
friends hastened joyfully to a restau

was bought and paid for with 15

Strength of si Dear.
Few people kuowthat a grizzly bear
can give points to any other carniv
orous animal in point of strength. A
grizzly lear weighing just four hun
dredweight has been watched carry
ing a heifer of more than two-thirds
its own weight for. two miles up the
most steep and rugged mountain side,
and this without pausing one instant
for rest. The grizzly bear is the lar
gest and most powerful of all the bear
tribe, but his cousin, the cinnamon
bear, runs him very close, and the big
white polar bear, though not really so
dangerous a customer, is capable of
performing the most extraordinary
feats of strength.

"At the castle ot Aros the lords of
the Isles held their parliament and
passed the. regal decrees, which distant
tribes were bound to respect. The sim
ple form in 'which important rights
were conveyed by these princes may
be illustrated by the following brief
but binding charter, which loses in
translation from the original Gaelic:
'I, Donald, the chief of the Macdon
alds, sitting on the hill of Dun Donald,

might greatly benefit some sticklers

been placed by mistake nt the bottom
of the table, on ierceiving which con
siderable emotion arose among the
company, who dreaded the conse

The Origin of Sir. and Mrs.
In earlier times the ordinary man
was simply William or John that is to
say, he had only a Christian name
without any kind of "handle" before it
or surname after It. Some means of
distinguishing one John or William
from another John or William became
necessary. Nicknames derived from a
man's trade or his dwelling place o'r
from some personal peculiarity were
tacked on to his Christian name, and
plain John became John Smith. As
yet there were no "misters" In the
land. Some John Smith accumulated
more wealth than the bulk of his fel
laws became perhaps a landed pro
prietor or an employer of hired labor.
Then he began to be called In the Norman-French
of the day the "maistre"
of this place or that, of these work
men or of tho6e. In the time the
"maistre," or "ma'ster," as it soon be
came, got tacked on before his name,
and be became Maister Smith and his
wife was Malstress Smith. Gradually
the sense' of possession was lost sight
of, and the title was conferred upon
any kind by mere possession of wealth
or holding some position of more or
less consideration end Importance.
