The d.wert was being served, and the
Stately colored waiters were passing
pretty little pink frosted cakes to be
eaten with tho ice cream. A plate of
them Wiis held before the yonng lady,
who looked them over and 6aid, "I don't
care for any."
The waiter was moving away when
she saw, as she thought, an eclair on the
farther side of the plate. She was fond
of choo date.
"Yes, I will too," she said, reaching
over for the eclair. "There is one with
chocolate on it."
"Beg pardon, miss," said the waiter,
as she tried to pick np the tempting
morsel, "beg pardon, miss, but that's
my thumb." Rochester Democrat.

A ralr of Them.
Not long since a ball was given at a
lunatic hospital. Many friends of the
inmates were present, and also friends
of the governor. Among them was a
well known yonng journalist. He had
the most difficult time imaginable to
pick out the sane from the insane. Fi
nally hn saw a young woman close to
him. He brushed by her by mistake,
and beg ged to be excused. She readily
forgave him, and then asked if he were
not the king of the Cannibal islands.
The journalist readily replied that he
was, and asked if the young lady were
not the queen. Then followed the fun
niest conversation. He began telling
her of his dominions and of the pres
ents he would purchase for her. He
would give a golden throne studded
with d amonds, all her dresses should
come from Worth's and Bhe should have
the best French chefs for cooks. Then
he described his new palace. The
descrip .ion was ornate in the extreme.
This couple talked in this way for at
least a a hour. Then they separated,
the young lady being claimed for a
"Sad case that," quoth the journalist
to one of the board, as the young lady
went w altzing with her escort.
"Sad"' What is sad about herT
"Oh, haven't you met her? Well, she
thinks iihe is the queen of the Cannibal
islands and that I am her king."
"Son e one has been guying you," said
the heartless governor. "She is no more
crazy t lan you are."
This was 'he sad case. A friend of
the yotng lady had informed her that
the yot ng journalist was as crazy as a
loon. They said, however, that he was
harmless and all that should be done
was to humor him into the belief that he
was tha king of the Cannibal islands.
The long and queen were not on speak
ing terms for the rest of &e evening.
