Walker, Ingram & Sweeney, solici
tors. Making Campaign Banners.
The services of twelve men are re
quired to produce one of the big cam
paign banners. Two men prepare the
strips on which the lettering is done.
Two more look after the lettering of
these strips, the painting of the names
of clubs or associations . ordering the
banners, the captions for the portraits
and the offices for which the nominees
are to contend. Two men workton the
centerpieces, generally consisting of an
eagle and shield. One man devotes
himself to the special portraits, and
i the others assemble the various parts,
sew the strips together and give ..the
finishing touches to the banner. The
"portrait man" scorns to do any other
work than the ninin portrait. . The rest
he calls "filling in." By working on
the same faces day after day this art
ist becomes so skillful and so rapid in
execution that he can paint the por
trait of a candidate in- the dark, and
paint it as true to life as the standard
Picking Tea Leaves.
"Tea leaf picking" was a Camber-
well industry in the early nineteenth ;
century. On May 13, 1S.'!3, when two ;
boys were charged with gambling on j
Sunday, one of them explained that he i
got the 2 shillings found upon him, ;
"not by gambling, your worship, but;
i by picking tea leaves." "The tea plant;
does not happen to grow In this coun-i
try. my lad." replied the magistrate; j

But the boy explained: "t nm em

gather sloe leaves and black and white
thorn leaves, and he pays me so much
a pound for all I pick." And the, po

COMQUEST OF THE AIR.
First Public Flight of an Aeroplane In
Thia Country. J
In "The Curtiss Avintion Boole"
Glenn Curtiss describes the first public !
aeroplane flight in America, lu the days j
before any one had ever heard of the ;
young Yankee inventor, and he tvas ex- j
rerlmenting with Alexander Ore has
Bell and others:
"Baldwin climbed Into the sent, took
the control in hand, and we cranked
the motor. When we released our hold
of the machine it spd over the ice like
a scared rabbit for two or three hun
dred feet and then, much to our joy, it
Jumped into the air. This was what we
had worked for through many long
months, and naturally we watched the
brief and uncertain course of Baldwin
with a good deal of emotion. . ,
"Rising to a height of six or seven
feet. Baldwin flew the tin hoard of dis
tance of 31S feet 11 Inches! Then be
came down iugloriously on one wing.
As we learned afterward, the frail
framework of the tall had bent and the
machine had flopped over on its side
and dropped on the wing, which gave
way and caused the machine to turn
completely around. v
"It had taken Just seven weeks to
build the machine and get it ready for
the trial; it had taken just about twen
ty seconds to smash It. But a great
thing had been accomplished. We had
achieved the first public flight of a
hoarier than air machine iu America!"
THE FIRST WATCHES.
They Had Weights, Not Springs, and
Were as Big a Plata. v
At first the watch was about the size
of a dessert plate. It hnd weights and,,
was used as a "pocket clock." The ear
liest known use of the modern name
occurs in the record of 1552, which
mentions that Edward VI. had "one
larum or watch of iron, the case being
likewise of iron gilt, with two plum-.
Diets of lead."
The first watches may readily be
supposed to have been of rude execu
tion. The first great improvement, the
substitution of springs for weights, wag
In 1550. The earliest springs were not
colled, but only straight pieces of steel.
Early watches had only one hand
and, being wound up twice a day, they ;
could not be expected to keep time
nearer than fifteen or twenty mlnuteg
in the twelve hours. The dials were ot
silver or brass. The cases had no crys
tals, but opened at the back and front
and were four or five iuches in diatn-i
A plain watch cost the equivalent ot
$l,0(ii) in our currency, and after on
was ordered it took a year to make It- -t

A stuttering salesman called on a
New York buyer with an excellent
proposition. In well turned sentence
he proceeded to lay before the buyer
his superb argument. But, alas, in
every well turned sentence there were
"bs" and "rns," and over these the
salesman stuttered pitiably.
The buyer before whom he wag
pleading was a caustic, nasty sort of
chap, aud after five minutes of stutter
ing at a point where the salesman wa,
floundering most dreadfully, the buyer
held up his hand and said: ,
"I'm afraid I can't understand yoo.
Call again when you're sober."
The salesman turned scarlet with
mortification and rage.
"Xo." said the buyer, waving him '
resolutely toward the door, "not now
when you're sober."

Macaulay as a Talker.
Where Macaulay's talk failed Is
clearly shown by Greviile. "If he could
tread less heavily on the ground, if he
could touch the subjects he handles
with a lighter hand. If he knew when
to stop as well as he knows what to
say, .his talk would b .- as attractive as
it is wonderful." It Is all summed up
In the sentence, "lie gave society piore
than it required and not exactly of the
kind." Macaulay. In fact, suffered
from excess of the first requisite of
talk, according to Johnson "materi
