cannot tell what that story was about j
I sat watchinjr the eymuastics of that
lively seclnien of 6b bait. In forty
seconds It was due to tumble into rny
lap. There was no writer near. The
reptile was hidden from my host by a
soup plate. Tbe man at my riht was
absorbed in conversation with a worn
an beside him. The worm had almost
reached the ed;;e of the table when 1
had an inspiration. I turned a red
wlnepiass upside down, for the waiter
was approaching with a napkin wrap
"Have you turned White Ribboner?"
asked my host.
"For tonight I hare." Where my
olee came from I do not know; neither
do I know how I ever sat out that
meal listening to a host who tried his
Jerel best to entertain a dull guest
and watching a frantic flsbwonn try
to break Its way out of Jail. Some

John all tbe way home from a dinner.
I was trying to make him understand
that pate ahertg were Intended to be
eaten. If it had been a caterer's
meal I should hare thought nothing
boat it. but our hostess was a fine
rook, and she had Just announced
proudly that we were having some of
ber own puff paste. Everybody ate
tbe pates except John. With the
greatest care he scooped out tbe
creamed chicken and left tbe shell.
He was horribly distressed over it.

PUFFED THEIR OWN WARES.
Authors In the Good Old Days Threw
Bouquets at Themselves.
Authors in "the good old days" were
not above writing their own puffs.
Charles Reade wrote a long article on
himself for Once a Week, in which he

well as one of the most ai tlstlc and beau

Read him. Resign yourself to the magic
epell of his ftenlus. The effect of "Foul
Play" la perfectly marvelous. It leaves
the stories of every other sensational nov
el writer fer behind.
Nor was Balzac In France above
praising his own works. "If you have
not been born a story teller." he wrote
Id a review, "you will never obtain
the popularity of M. de Balzac. And
what a story teller! What verve and
wit! How the world is dissected by
this man! What passion and cool
ness!" But the height of literary advertis
ing In' the first half of the" last cen
tury was reached in the case of Lu
gene Sue's famous novel "The Wan
dering Jew." Kvery little wli the
daily installment in the newspaper in
which it was appearing would he miss
ir.g. and In its place would be an an
nouncement that M. Pup was stiTerins
from a slight Indisposition and read
ers wou!d be obliged to watt forty
eight hours for new developments of
the narrative. So well did thcp meth
ods succeed, says Mr. Tr.ssin. that it
was Impossible to buy ontrijrht a copy
of the Journal, but instead copies were
rented out at 10 sous for half an hour,
the time thought necessary to rend the
installment. "And all the while Sue
himself was industriously abetting the
publishers by posing overdressed and
with spurs to his lioots at the Cafe de
Paris in an attitude of deppps al
stractic.n. ss If wont!rln whst she

Quaint English Surnames.
There are stiil the ijiiiiiiit surnames
redolent of the soil or the early expe
riences in the hill country of the CotH
wolds. A corresfwjndent 'ells me that
there are four uieii working on on
i farm on the Cotswold hiiU named re
j siteetivelr Pill, Fouracre, I'otUcvurv
and" Greenjrrass men ciearly who have
gained their surnames from some kind
of Idiosyncrasy or fact, men who may
